I AM AN INTUITIVE THAT LOVES TO HELP OTHERS CONNECT WITH THE DIVINE!

I AM AN INTUITIVE THAT LOVES TO HELP OTHERS CONNECT WITH THE DIVINE!

"I can honestly say that what I have here is because of Divine Intervention."

Like most of us, I have had struggles in my life. I'm grateful for this because It has helped me to become a more compassionate and loving person.

One of the difficult situations I have struggled through in my life brought me to where I am today. Not that many years ago I was an avid runner. I loved training for races with my husband and all the joy that comes with running. Long story short…. because of serious health reasons, I had to stop running. In losing the ability to run, I lost a focus for my life I felt passionate about and since I had identified so much with running, I also lost a bit of my identity.  I felt scared facing such a big and foundational change in my life, but I knew I had to re-evaluate everything and begin to re-discover and re-invent myself!

The good news is, that because a main focus of my life had been taken from me, the intuitive gifts which I had ignored for years, began surfacing more and became so strong that I had to face and integrate these gifts I had been born with into my new life. Some people get a little trickle of spiritual awareness when their intuitive gifts begin to surface… My spiritual awareness opened like a great "whoosh" and my life changed completely over night!!! Luckily, as my life changed, it also brought more peace into our home. Gradually, I became aware that I was called to share with others these gifts I had been given.

I am blessed with a very full life…. Three wonderful children, an exceptional husband and two dogs. I have all the craziness of teenage drama and elementary school play dates that comes with a busy family. I balance these demands with my Spiritual life.

I am a Mystic that knows we are Spiritual beings, much greater than our human selves. We are all connected. We all have the same light shinning bright within. As we recognize this light we obtain personal peace and this allows us to obtain peace on a much greater level, in our homes, schools and far beyond.

How To Demystify Evil

shutterstock_552563212 How To Demystify Evil

Most of us are familiar with the term evil; but have you ever wondered what evil really is? Does evil have a mind of its own? Can it take over a person’s world? Is evil the opposite of God? Is an evil part of an unavoidable karmic experience? Is each of us capable of committing evil?

So many questions swirl around a word that has the potential to stop you in your tracks. Often, the word evil is used when someone is experiencing fear or wanting others to experience fear.  How convenient it is to learn an evil force will rise if you fail to obey. You might have been cautioned to avoid something or someone because they are evil. This word is used both lightheartedly and in very serious tones. Interestingly, evil is similar to love; they both cover a huge territory of implication while evoking powerful feelings.

Allow me to demystify evil.

How to Win the Lottery

happy-woman-jumping-and-enjoying-life-at-sunset-in-mountains-picture-id931873664 How to Win the Lottery

I have always thought it is fun to take part in a game of chance.  I purchase raffle tickets and enter other contests. I feel pretty lucky in life, so why not. During the early weeks of pandemic life, like many other people, I purchased a weekly lottery ticket. At that time my only outing was driving to a pool for our son to swim. On our way home, we would look at the lottery numbers on a huge sign. It was updated weekly, sharing how much money was still available. We always noticed when there had been a big payout. My son and I would entertain ourselves, talking about winning the lottery. What would we do with a big cash prize?

In truth, our everyday life probably wouldn’t change much.  I would buy new windows, doors, and a snake fence for our aging home.  I would invest some money in my business.  Mostly, it is fun to think about what animal sanctuaries, environmental and humanitarian groups I would donate to. It feels good to run all the possibilities of contributing through my mind. The thrill of making a sizable difference is very fun to explore.

A winning lottery ticket is symbolic of living a life of freedom, no restrictions.  It is a creative way to think about what you want most in your life. Buying the ticket and daydreaming of a win, helps you visualize unlimited finances, and removes restrictions. Imagining what you will do with your winnings, brings true abundance one step closer to your reality.  This process can land you a winning lottery ticket; more importantly, it can help you discover your ability to manifest your greatest desires.

Creating a Legacy of Peace

give-the-world-your-peace-picture-id1171021471 Creating a Legacy of Peace

Just when it looked like life might hold some semblance of normalcy, news of murder and powerful protests are being flashed around. Anger and grief have given us an opportunity to reconsider our life choices. We could say this is a time like no other, but that is not completely true. We have been living with pandemics, racism, sexism, wars, and other assaults to our wellness. What is different this time around?

Earth is at a perfect angle or a tipping point that allows light to reach our deepest wounds.  Most of us have had a devastating awareness of our world’s pain. Trauma from all the past years is being relived. Our heartbreak is real.

In the past several years, we have witnessed a growing number of voices calling our attention to the causalities of indifference, fear, and ignorance. We have groups that speak out for the rights of animals. Others stand up against racism and sexism. People have been stepping up and taking action for the collective all over the world. At the same time, we have groups desperately holding onto a world that lives in a state of crisis. They want to control the water, breath, and lives of others. This has created a knot of tension and anger on earth. Outrage and violence have reached capacity.

We are being guided to dismantle the untruths and free ourselves from the affliction of fearful thoughts. Our lesson is to learn; compassion has no boundaries.

Terrapin

praying-on-the-rock-picture-id148773973 Terrapin

I saw myself swimming in a river of deep blues and greens. The shape of the water reminded me of a swimming spot in my childhood. There was a sense of freedom and anticipation surrounding me. Every moment felt familiar.

I began to notice an energy that was coming from outside my vision. This new energy allowed a connection to memories of the previous life. Eternity began to swirl through my mind. The change brought a calm that surrounded me. While loosely observing my thoughts of creation, I felt a strong presence. My vision quietly revealed who was sharing this moment with me. We communicated without words.

I began to swim to the beautiful creature that was sharing such kindness and wisdom. I reached out and touched a giant terrapin. His shell looked like it was made of earth. The message to me was one of love and patience. I rested my forehead on his cheek. Through this touch, I was able to feel our entire world and so much more. I was shown how humanity is being guided deeper through the universe’s passage to eternal wisdom. I understood I had to wait and be patient. There will be many of us discovering our true connection. We will find each other, but first we must understand our personal power. Only then can we patiently have space for others.

I knew without a doubt that the ancient creature was a teacher for the whole of humanity. The message was clear. All animals, humans, and Mother Earth are connected through the energy that flows through our souls. We are all one, we are all equal.

The wise one encouraged me to trust my instincts and recognize that healing can occur even in darkness and confusion. Instinctively, I knew the turtle was returning to a place on earth that needed his wisdom and love. Higher power comes in all forms, males, females, rocks, plants, or animals.

Resources for an Inspired Life

PollyImage_Shutterstock Resources for an Inspired Life

Our world is created by a continuous flow of dynamic energy. We are constantly sharing, receiving, and evolving in spirit, including our bodies and minds. This concept once was considered new thought, and now it’s widely recognized.

Ask yourself, are you enjoying the flow of new energy, or struggling with change?

Each of us has the ability to manifest our dreams and enjoy a positive flow in life. To master this, we come into this world with assistance from the unseen world. We have Angels and Guides that are always with us. Ultimately, with their help, our life is inspired and sacred.  We achieve awakening as we learn how to communicate and co-create with our Universal energy, Angels, Guides, and all that is.  The crux is discovering our unique life directory and language.

Cosmic Mix

Cosmic Mix Cosmic Mix

An interesting scene unfolded before me. Two women deep in conversation walked down the street. One was dragging a much-used suitcase, and both were drinking from sparkling champagne flutes. They acted as if it was an everyday outing. It was the combination of crystal glassware and a battered suitcase that caught my attention. This was in contrast to the manicured neighborhood they walked through.

The following morning I was hiking when a bird landed on the trail about seven feet in front of me.  My puppy and I watched a very large rattlesnake come out of the grass on one side of the trail. It slithered right past the bird and disappeared into dried grass on the opposite side.  As we walked by, I could only see the rattles and part of the tail, the head and body were completely hidden.  There was something comforting about observing the bird and the snake experiencing the only life they know.

Our world holds vast opportunities for very unique and rich experiences. We have the potential for amazing views, sounds, tastes, and colors. Every possibility we can think of, can be created. This concept is the foundation of the Law of Attraction.  It is a popular practice used to manifest what you want in life. It encourages ownership for what shows up on your life path, or drive home.

Revival

meditating2 Revival

I have been daydreaming about a lovely family vacation in Hawaii with my children and husband. I have also been wanting some easy travel in a hippy van with my husband and dogs. I imagine us sitting outside under the stars. Both sound really good right now! In the past, if I found myself needing a break from daily life, I would plan a trip. Maybe I would go, or I would not, but it was always an option. Currently, the thing I would like to get away from the most will join me wherever I am. The pandemic has created a shadow over the state of mind for many people and places. This is not all bad.

One of the blessings of our global health concern is a reminder of wherever you go, there you are. The only way to escape the feeling of crisis is to get comfortable with who you are and your relationship with everything. You can’t escape you or the Universe!

This outbreak could be the catalyst for us becoming a mindful and evolved species.

Honoring Our Connection

Honoring Our Connection Honoring Our Connection

What a gift we have, when we recognize the connections.

Several years ago I met an elderly woman, who I will always remember. Her name is Elli. She was strongly connected to the other side, but not yet ready to go. She shared how she has always experienced angels in her life and also how much she loved her family. Physically she was petite and frail with a tiny patch of purple in her hair.

All through her life brilliant showers of light would show up, reaffirming her awareness of God and her connection with the Angels.

Elli’s daughter is a friend of mine. She was concerned about her mother’s health, pain and fatigue. Elli was diagnosed with stage four cancer. This sweet little lady that sees angels, traveled from the East Coast to Anchorage twice, while I knew her. We eventually set up a regular call on Friday mornings for her to receive some healing energy and a guided meditation. At some point the stage four cancer was completely gone, yet Elli remained very frail, hungry and exhausted.  Through it all, she was riding the wave of awareness that includes love, most don’t understand. Her body was tired and shutting down, but she still enjoyed the sweetness in life.

The Habit of Fear

The Habit of Fear The Habit of Fear

Weeks ago, I was awoken in the middle of the night by coyotes just outside our house. They paused their trek long enough to loudly share a secret. One call, in particular, kept me awake. It sounded like spooky maniacal laughter. The next day I asked the dogs if they understood the message.

This morning there were flash flood warnings, rain, and lightning storms. I waited for a break in the storm before I headed up the hiking trail. I wore sandals because I needed to feel closer to the Earth. Supreme (my trail pup) and I slowly walked and splashed our way up the empty trail enjoying the mud and water in the washes. The rain brought out sweet and earthy smells from the plants and the birds were loudly sharing their insight. We could hear the coyotes far away. At the top, I took a picture of myself enjoying the clouds and open space. On our way down the mountain, we began to run into other people.  It was so good to share a moment of peace and happiness; a wonderful connection.

What I learned in Puppy Class

puppyclass What I learned in Puppy Class

After our big poodle Ringo died, we had one very sad, little poodle dog in Alaska.  We decided It was time for her to make the trip to Arizona.  We hoped that a busier house and the warm sun would help her spirits lift.  She had come into our lives at eight weeks old, a rescue from Fairbanks, Alaska.  My favorite name for her was Baby Dog, even in her adult years.  She loved people and our dog Ringo, but wasn’t so sure about most other dogs.

I wanted to find a companion for Baby Dog to grow old with.  I also wanted a dog that could be my trail pup.  I choose the name Supreme, before we knew when or how a new dog would enter our life.  I loved the name Supreme because it reminds me of our connection to all the good and lovely things in life.  I imagined that every time I called Supreme, I would be connecting to the wonderful, spiritual richness life has to offer.

I found a male poodle puppy that would hopefully become Baby Dog’s best friend and my trail partner.  On his second day with our family, my son and I walked and mostly carried him on my favorite trail. The next day I took him for a wellness check.  I was told he needed to stay in our home and yard exclusively until he reached 16 weeks old.  After his last Parvo vaccination Supreme would be free to leave our home.  I was disappointed, but put off puppy class and trail walks until he was safe.

Manifest Your Feelings

manifestfeelings Manifest Your Feelings

Most of us have experienced moments, maybe even life times of attempting to control the future.  This might happen when we want something so badly, we view it as the only acceptable outcome.  The irony of this is, when we only allow one option, we close the door to possible better options. Often times fear creeps in and our brain will begin to tell us why we may or may not, achieve our perceived only option.  At this point the focus becomes on why it might not happen, versus  why it will happen.

Is it possible to just relax and really let the future unfold? Yes;  but there are several important pieces to consider when allowing your life to open up magically.  If you have specific goals; ask yourself why this and not something different? Make sure they are your dreams, not someone else’s.  The next piece to consider is, how will you feel when you achieve your goal?

Feelings are the most important piece in creating our future and enjoying the now.  Imagine and connect to the feelings you love.  Make them a part of your everyday life.  Let each breath hold a connection to your favorite feelings and dreams.  Each time you experience a feeling it can build and continue to grow until it fully becomes who you are.

Where is God When Disaster Strikes?

cloudspollyWhere is God When Disaster Strikes? Where is God When Disaster Strikes?

This is such a great question. If our faith is ever going to waiver, it will be when we see or experience, painfully scary and seemingly unnecessary events. Today we have plenty of examples to choose from. My answer; God is always with you and within you.

Without spending too much time on the concept of going within to connect with God; that is where you will find eternal peace.  Practice meditation and prayer.  Spend time in silence.  You will begin to experience the world differently, kinder.  You will begin to identify miracles of the smallest nature that lead you to experiencing life in a kinder and more simple world.  Simple because you become the great observer, and recognize everything as both miraculous and anticipated.

Our external world matches our internal world.  When we experience inner peace; we see glimpses of God in everything we pause to study.

How to Tap into the Strength of Your Truth

strengthofyourtruth How to Tap into the Strength of Your Truth

My writing has been described as lyrical or even whimsical.  I know my words as truth; they carry an awareness of a kinder and compassionate world.

We are living in a time that allows our actions and reactions to be far reaching into our world.  Humanity has documented challenges and successes of our planet throughout the ages.  Our ability to be aware of current situations across the oceans has gifted us a unique knowledge and challenge. The media is sharing terrifying footage of fires, wars, and other devastating events that are portrayed as out of control.  It might appear like humanity is being brought to our collective knees….

I choose to look at this moment in history as an opportunity to gain a higher perspective of our options.  We can unite, bring light, and vibrancy to the areas where fear has trapped us.  To achieve this, we need to look deeper into every image.  For example, we see animals fleeing the fires in Australia.  This has triggered emotions for many of us.  Seeing the animals loosing lives to an out of control fire stirs up grief, fear and sadness.

Our New Year is Illuminating Awareness, Partnerships & Discipline

holidaypause Our New Year is Illuminating Awareness, Partnerships & Discipline

The pause just after Christmas and Hanukkah holds a powerful occurrence.  The work schedule is not quite back to normal.  A lull in expectations can be felt.  This temporary interruption in our daily lives offers us the perfect time to create goals for the new year.  This is a truly spectacular opportunity.  We get to decide what we want in 2020.  This season we are creating not only a new year, but a new decade!

Imagine the Universe is preparing to give birth to a new year that has yet to be touched by our experiences.  The emergent year remains intact and waiting for our concept of time to crack open the shell that contains our collective thoughts.  Soon we begin to feel the experiences we have been searching for.  Like most births there is a mixture of anticipation, a little fear of the unknown and possibly an awareness of the responsibility to do the right thing.  There are moments of pain that will be forgotten and overwhelming experiences of heart opening love.  Together we will welcome the birth of a new year and a beautiful new decade.

When looking back, the year 2012 was thought to bring a powerful new consciousness shift to Earth.  Many believed it was the beginning of changes that could help humanity evolve.   Some were expecting to see proof of a cosmos that contains miracles, truth, and the answers mystics speak of.

Like 2012 the year 2020 is set to unleash a great wave of evolution for Earth and it’s inhabitants. What begins in 2020 will gain strength through the decade.

How to Create a Life Changing Mantra

How to Create a Life Changing Mantra How to Create a Life Changing Mantra

Mantras are honored in a vast variety of spiritual practices and traditions, through many centuries. They elevate daily lives, and have an important place in both mindful and intentional living. Mantras are also one of the main ingredients in successful manifestation. They can be words, sounds or even repetitive actions.

Many people experience life without recognizing their personal power.  The words and thoughts we repeatedly tell ourselves are basically mantras that are void of sacred energy and intent. I invite you to take charge of your life by using intentional mantras. Follow these simple steps and get ready to celebrate your dreams:

Doorways

Doorways Doorways

Everything in our life is here, because at some point, we walked thru a doorway and summoned  the experience.  I will share an example of this; outside my window there are rabbits and an occasional red cardinal eating pieces of lettuce and carrots.  Earlier in the day I put the produce out knowing it would attract some animals.  My thoughts and actions created the enjoyable encounter.  I also credit thoughts and behavior for the not so sweet manifestations.

What ever shows up in our life, we play a significant role in how and why it has appeared.   Our mind creates the door frame and our response leads us through the passage that holds our experiences.  The power of our mind is responsible for building everything physical and non physical on our journey.   Imagination holds the potential for everything.

Sitting with God

sittingwithgod Sitting with God

I don’t believe luck randomly offers people a place in our life.  There is a deeper connection involved when a moment, lesson or even message needs to be shared.  There is a supreme force of power, love and light that brings us together.  We join this energy of infinite possibilities on a journey that brings light and love to the surface. 

This morning, after hiking I created an office space outside.  The sun had warmed the Earth a perfect temperature.  The birds were singing and some of my favorite music was playing.   It was one of those moments that reminded me of how perfect life can be.  My intent was to catch up on emails and begin my blog.  My heart was wide open.

I was thinking about yesterday, an artist confided in me how her art reveals secrets of what is going on in her life.  Each peace shares a connection to what her heart is experiencing at the time of creation.  In the past decade she experienced a divorce, followed by a diagnosis of a serious health threat.  She also had children to raise. It was this powerful need for strength and purpose that brought healing and passion into her art. Finally she is ready to release some of the pieces created in her darkest time.  They have served their purpose.  The healing is complete.  She is now painting over the original art, and sharing a different story for people to connect with.

Love Shared Thru Art

polly-art-thru-1024x520 Love Shared Thru Art

A few months ago, when I traveled from Alaska to Arizona I loaded into my car what I wanted for my new living and creative space. It wasn’t much; some clothes, a few pieces of art and some family pictures.  I also grabbed a couple of old race photos. I chose what inspired me or reminded me of our life with younger children. I knew the house, we would eventually decorate in Arizona, had a much different vibration than the house in Alaska.  The majority of what filled our walls in Anchorage would remain in Alaska.  

A very large tapestry had been hanging near the back entrance to my husband’s office space.  It was placed where only those that entered thru a private door, might have a moment to notice it’s uniqueness.  This piece is about six feet tall and three feet wide. It was hand woven with brilliant hues of purples, golds, browns, greens, blues and reds. A sheep, winged animal and goat is the collective theme. These creatures were created by wide strands of yarn beautifully woven together. It reminds me of a far away place, from long ago.  It felt almost too big for the wall. Over time I noticed something magical hiding in this art. When the time was right, it would come to life.  

As we began to plan our move, we discussed what might work in Arizona.  This particular piece had been grabbing my attention. I often paused by the door, admiring the colors and shapes.  Sometimes I could feel the pull of ancient wisdom, love and even healing touching my heart. I could even feel smoky fires from a very long time ago. With my husband’s blessing the woven art was taken down and slowly, over land and sea made the journey to a new home.

Ringo and a Lesson in Grief

ringo-4 Ringo

I was raised with cows, horses, goats, dogs and a couple other species of animals.  These creatures and our very large garden, taught me at a young age, about the time and energy involved in animal and garden care.  I love plants, but choose to not commit the time to growing them.  For many years that’s how I viewed animals.  I love animals. I even eat a plant based diet because of my spiritual beliefs that acknowledges the sanctity of animals.  Still I didn’t have the time needed to properly care for an animal.

When my children were no longer babies I finally decided I had the energy and resources required to care for a family dog.  This is after years of our oldest child asking for a puppy.

My husband was shocked when my stance of no, no, never..  changed to, “ lets get a poodle.”

That is how Ringo came into our lives.  We bought him from someone out of state.  She claimed her poodles had service dog dispositions.  Ringo was born in December and he came to us in April.  We picked him up at the airport in the evening.  When we opened the crate he was all legs.  He looked more like a young horse then a dog.  He quickly became part of our life.  For the first few years our oldest was the person that slept with and helped care for him.

Have you ever felt a stirring inside for something more in your life?  Many of us look at life with a view that holds some ups, some downs and lots of in between.  The highs are filled with satisfaction and success. You easily connect to these high vibration experiences.  The lows might be filled with frustration, grief or sadness; but again it has your attention. It’s the in-between when your mind begins to touch the unsettled.  This gets people craving a little more zest, love and maybe adventure. The channel between the highs and lows can stir unanswered emotions and feelings. Eventually thoughts begin to bubble up.  These feelings and emotions are a call for action. If the call is acted on, you often find your life purpose. If the emotions are ignored, you might feel unsure of your life. Possibly you feel stuck, until you  get the courage to sort out this energy. 

These unanswered emotions and thoughts often hint at your life path that has yet to be  discovered. This is an opportunity to create a life where you experience love in all areas of your life. You freely give and receive love.  Life becomes a steady flow of connection to all.
