NEWS FROM ROSEMARY

A Fire, A House, and Trust

It is with a heavy heart that I write this message to you as we watch the community of Colorado Springs, Colorado where our house is, suffer through the wildfire called the Waldo Canyon Fire. This fire started on June 23rd and they do not know when they will have it under control. They have no idea yet how the fire started.

For the first three days the officials were reporting that no structures had been lost to the wildfire, but last night [June 26th] Mother Nature took total control, shifted the winds, and blew the fire from the canyons of the forest into our neighborhood, Mountain Shadows. We watched in horror as the flames came over the ridge and down into the houses.

The Flying W Ranch, which has been owned by the Wolfe family since 1953 and has entertained us and many guests, burned to the ground. This local fixture is a few blocks west of our house. We watched other houses burst into flames. We listened to the scanner reporting that firefighters were working to save houses very near ours.

As the sun set and the skies darkened, the flames became more dramatic and more horrifying. At least the residents had been evacuated and moved to safer territory.

I can’t explain to you how it feels to hear the firefighters talking about trying to save a house a block or two from yours and then deciding that they cannot protect it. I suspect you can imagine the effect of a picture like the one above when you know that your house is behind that wall of flames. As I write this I don’t know yet whether or not our house is still standing. I do know that, even if the structure stands and many of the houses very nearby do not, our contents will have suffered the effects of smoke and water.

What do you value in your life? Your photographs, reminders of special people and events in your history. Certificates, diplomas, important papers. Collections. Artwork. Books.

Ah, the books. I love books and have been amassing an amazing library for decades. Spiritual books, metaphysical, quantum physics and other sciences, healing modalities, poetry, astrology, numerology, enneagram, feng shui. Years of journals. My favorite Regency Period romance novels. Gifts from others. Gifts from authors. 20 years of Mountain Astrologer Magazines. Can these survive even if the house is still standing?

I’ve been collecting piano sheet music since I first learned to play in the first grade. I have bought sheet music and saved programs from all the Broadway shows we have seen. I’ve collected a lot of holiday music. It’s all in that house.

We have some beautiful artwork by Britten, Pat McHold, Felipe Ortega that can’t be replaced if it’s been affected. My baby grand piano. The photographs, included a large one of my grandfather done when he was 7 in 1892. Wedding gown, Mardi Gras ball gown, Mom’s mink stole.

I admit that I’m an emotional store of memories in ‘stuff.’ But I am changing. We have had to let go of a lot of things as we have decluttered and prepared to move to Maryland. The rest of the decisions might have been made for us.

Think about what matters to you. What would you pack up to take with you if you had to leave your home? What really matters?

We didn’t have the opportunity to plan to evacuate. We weren’t there to do that. It’s possible that all we own is what we have with us at our daughter’s house. This is humbling.

But it is also an opportunity for a new beginning. Whether we can salvage some of our ‘stuff’ or not, we will use a different criteria for what we take with us and what we can let go of. What really matters? The answer to that question will guide us as we move forward.

I lived through a fire when I was a senior in high school. I was more concerned with losing my new prom gown and my parakeet. My only clothes were the ones on my back – the winter uniform of my Catholic girls’ school on the last day I was going to have to wear it. I had joked about burning this after school that day. Instead, all of my other clothes were burned and it was all I had left to wear.

But my parents taught me about their philosophy of life. ‘Things always work out for the best.’ They were so convinced of that, despite this tragedy, that I used the story for the first sermon I delivered when I was ordained. Trust. Trust that the Universe has a plan that is working out just as it should.

I remember the lesson.

My heart goes out to all who have been affected by this fire which has, to date, burned over 15,000 acres of beautiful forest, canyon land and neighborhoods. My gratitude goes to those firefighters and emergency personnel who are working to preserve our house and others. One story is that a firefighter worked to preserve a neighbor’s house a few blocks from ours while he was watching his own house burn down. A hero. So far there have been no injuries or deaths in this fire. We are grateful for this.

I pray that you never go through this experience. I am sending a different kind of ezine this week to share with you what we are going through. There are two messages for this week:

First, decide what really matters to you and use that to guide your choices.

Second, trust that the Universe has a plan that is unfolding as it must.

As my Mom and Dad said, ‘Things always work out for the best.’

BOOK LIGHTS: from “Beyond Positive Thinking: A No-Nonsense Formula for Getting the Results You Want” by Doctor Robert Anthony

Your intention sets the universe in motion. The universe flows in the direction of your intention, and so it is important to be clear on your exact intention in any situation. If you are absolutely clear as to your intent, your subconscious success mechanism will support you in getting there. Most people encounter problems in creating the kind of life they want because they have not clearly determined where they want to go, or visualized what it is going to look like when they get there. Those who lead purposeful, successful lives do so because they have set up in their mind a clear picture of what they want to create in their lives.

Doctor Robert Anthony

First create the Dream. Then focus your intention on it. Feel it in the present. Everything else will line up to meet that vision. And all you have to do is Imagine!

MUSE-INGS: Imagine You’re the Dreamer

So much to worry about. So much to do.

How much time each day do you spend worrying about what’s happening and worrying about getting things done? Let’s reassign that time to taking action to move in the direction of your dreams!

It is so easy to fall into the trap of believing that reality is what we see around us. There are people who criticize the dreamers for not facing reality and, yet, I believe that it’s the dreamers who can see what is Real with a capital ‘R.’ Listen to John Lennon’s song, Imagine, again and really listen to the words.

‘You may say I’m a dreamer,
But I’m not the only one.’

We can all be dreamers and we can create THAT Reality.

It starts in your own life. What are your dreams for your life? Are you able to access a place of peace within you that helps you to bring that dream into reality?

Worry doesn’t take us where we want to go. Worry energizes the lack or the thing we fear or something else that hasn’t happened and magnetizes that. What we do instead of worry is to focus on the energy of the dream we have and bring that into our lives by magnetizing what we desire instead of what we don’t want to have. It might seem tricky but it’s simple.

Every time the specter of something you are worrying about arises, sing John Lennon’s song to yourself. Imagine being the dreamer who can imagine something better, something you want to see in your life. Replace the picture or the feeling of the worry with the picture AND the feeling of the dream.

That’s what you do. Replace the picture or the feeling of the worry with the picture AND the feeling of the dream.

Use your own power to energize your own dream. Other people can’t dream for you. Other people work with you to help you manifest your dream. As a mentor I hold the image in front of your face when you forget what your dream is. Find a mentor to do that for you. When the direction of your dream starts to get confused or blurry, have someone else in your life who can turn you back onto the correct road and clear your vision.

And don’t give your power away to anyone who wants to replace your dream, your vision for yourself with their wish for you. Parents, siblings, well-meaning friends and colleagues are looking through the lens of their own fears, beliefs and limitations. They cannot see through your eyes. They do not have the Soul Purpose that you came into the world to manifest so they can only see as far as their own vision can take them.

YOU know your own dream. And if it’s not clear for you, get some help in that clarification. YOU know your Soul Purpose. If you don’t, then have someone help you define it, through scientific hand analysis or some other means.

It’s helpful to have a mentor or coach or counselor to help you to see where you are going and to help you to make sure it is where you want to be going. You don’t have to do it alone. But choose your partner in this very carefully. Make sure it is someone who wants you to go where YOU want to go, not where they want to take you. Ultimately, it is your life and you are the director.

You are also the dreamer. And you’re not the only one.

Dream your life and then take action in the direction of your dream. The Universe will leap to help you manifest that dream.

MYSTIC MESSAGE from The Divine Feminine: Can You Dream?

Dear Ones,

Fluttering hearts, anxious words, furrowed brows. We would rather see you at peace.

How do you find peace in the 21st Century world? There is always talk of war. There are financial concerns at all levels. There is much to worry about. And yet we would have you seek peace. Can you? Do you know how?

Peace is not something that relies on the circumstances around you being calm or exactly as you desire them to be. Peace comes from a deep place inside you that understands that the Universe is unfolding as it should. Truly believing that this is true will bring you peace.

And yet you look around you and the chaos and uncertainty make it difficult to bring your belief system into alignment with the ‘reality’ that you wish. We will give you the steps to accomplish this.

First, you must examine your life to understand that every step you have taken along the way has brought you to the place where you are today. This does not mean that you are to blame for all the circumstances in the world but it does mean that you have learned enough to manage what you must manage today. Nothing in your world is beyond your ability to handle. Nothing. You have what it takes to proceed.

Now, do you believe that? If you throw up your hands and say, “Woe is me!” then you will not draw on the resources within you to take care of your circumstances. You DO have what you need inside of you.

Next, we would ask you to remember that you are not alone. You are connected to a network of amazing people. Every single one of you reading these words has other people around you who are wanting to help you. You have supporters. You have people who wish for you to succeed in what you are attempting to do.

Do you believe that? You might look in your immediate circle and believe that others do not believe you can succeed, or they want you to do it their way, or they think that you can’t do anything right. However, you CAN succeed, and you CAN do it right, because you have infinite wisdom available to you when you connect to that wisdom within you.

Look beyond the naysayers. Find the like-minded people who want your success and who are willing to let you seek that success in your own way. They are in your life, even if they are hard for you to find sometimes. They are there, we promise you. Find one of them and ask for moral support.

Know that this is not about having someone just hand you what you want. We are saying that there are people who will support you as you create what you desire. There is a difference. And you know how to do what you must do. The answers are all inside you, when you drop the worry and concern and reach inside for the wisdom that is accessible there.

The last step is to take action in the direction of your dreams. When you move forward with a consciousness directed toward what you want the stumbling blocks move out of the way. Live consciously along the path of your heart’s desires. Take a step, no matter how small, in the direction of your dreams and the Universe will leap to your assistance.

THIS is reality. Your Soul Purpose is manifesting in your dreams. Follow your dreams. Allow the support you need to appear around and inside of you. Go forth and trust. All is ready for you to manifest your Big Dream NOW!!!

And so it is.

NEWS FROM ROSEMARY

What a week it’s been! First the trip to New Jersey for Monica Shah’s Money 2.0 Event, then a New Moon and the Summer Solstice. Lots of amazing energy to handle and now it is officially Summer here in Maryland – the Sun is in Cancer.

Did you do something to celebrate the Solstice? Here in the Northern Hemisphere we enjoyed the longest day, the most sunlight. I like to meditate on The Light and become One With The Light, one of my favorite meditations, on the Solstice. The world needs for us to ramp up the Light!

As I wrote this week’s ezine I listened to John Lennon sing his incredible song, Imagine, and I hope that you will find it on YouTube and listen to it, too. We can imagine the world we want to live in. It’s time! And no one is alone.

This past weekend I was in New Jersey to meet up with my friend, Cecelia Dawe-Gillis, whom I met through Baeth Davis. At the event I was surprised to find other friends from other tribes of which I am a member – at least 4 of them! I felt honored to be the Nexus of the Networks to which I belong. And I realized that we are all the Nexus of the Networks. Do you see that in your life? I even found that one new friend I met is a friend of a friend across the country – one degree of separation! We are all connected. Remember that.

I had a great week and I am looking forward to working with some new people in the coming weeks. One of my favorite things to do is to offer a Conversation with The Other Side for someone who hosts the event and invites their friends to join them. Would you like to be a host and to attend for free? Because we can do these via videoconference your friends can be anywhere in the world and join us via computer or phone. If you’re in the DC area (or nearby on the East Coast) we can do this in person. Here’s where you can go to sign up to host one of these fun events: Host Link. I also offer unhosted Conversations with The Other Side periodically but it would be more fun if you invited your friends to gather, and the number is very limited – max 12 – because everyone who attends receives a personal message of wisdom from an angel, guide or loved one who has crossed over. Check it out!

We’re almost ready to launch the new ezine and the new programs. Coming very soon!!! I’m excited!

The astrological happenings of this week support the focus on imagining your dreams into reality. Around midnight Saturday/Sunday (Eastern Time) the Sun trines Neptune and carries us beyond isolation into a sense of connectedness with all life. “Forgiveness, faith, compassion, and imagination flow from this spiritually enriching aspect,” according to The Mountain Astrologer magazine. We’ve also got the Moon moving into Libra on Tuesday so there’s some beautiful energy of peace and harmony. With Neptune playing with the Sun and then Jupiter, pay attention to your dreams! And Imagine!

Have a dream-y week!

BOOK LIGHTS: from “The Law of Attraction is NOT a Secret” by Anita G. Wheeler

People send messages out to the universe, asking for money or abundance, when in fact, it’s financial freedom they truly want. They want to remove the stress, anxiety and worry that lack of money brings into their life, not an unlimited well of funds to dip into. They invoke the Law of Attraction but aren’t aware and clear about what they really do want.    Most people don’t actually want the things they wish for—-they actually want the FEELINGS they get from those things.

Anita G. Wheeler

Look at what you are wanting to attract into your life and make sure that you are matching that with the vibration that you are sending out to the Universe. You are always subject to the Law of Attraction, whether positive or negative. As an individual and as a Planet we are magnetizing the vibration of what we transmit. Make sure you personally are magnetizing what you WANT and not the energy of something that you don’t want! When we do this individually, we can change our own life and, ultimately, the life of the Planet.

MUSE-INGS: “No power in the ‘Verse…”

As fans of Joss Whedon’s ‘Firefly’ sci fi series we love the quotes from that clever TV show. When I think of an unstoppable power in the Universe, it’s Love.

How many phrases are there in our cultures that talk about Love?

“What the world needs now is Love, Sweet Love”

“Love makes the world go ‘round”

“All you need is Love”

The list goes on. And it is not just the fantasy of romantic love that is spoken of, but the unconditional Love of acceptance, non-judgment, tolerance, blessing.

Yet so many are angry, fearful and lash out at others in hatred. Why must we have laws against ‘hate crimes’? When did humans decide that they have the right to end another’s life because they don’t like them? Why is hatred/vitriol/anger the coin of the realm in talk radio? Why are so-called reality shows only supported if they include anger and drama and win/lose energies? Is this really what we want 21st Century humans to be identified with?

Think deeply about how you might contribute to this energetic in the world today. You don’t have to belong to the Ku Klux Klan to hold hatred in your heart. You don’t have to be the angry radio talk show host who fuels the anger and hatred of others by spouting vitriol, often based on lies but then the truth doesn’t matter either.

You just have to support this. Either by being a viewer/listener to increase the frequency of this energy being transmitted or by sending out your own energy of anger and hatred into the air around you. And you increase the power of this energy by ignoring that this is what is being transmitted out into the Cosmos from your Planet.

Think about living a Conscious Life, where you are careful of your own thoughts, emotions, words. You choose carefully how you live in relation to other people and to Mother Earth herself. You Love. And maybe you need to increase the energy of that Love so that you are a counteracting force for the Light.

When you become conscious that you are closing down, shutting the doors on your radiating Love energy, then ramp it up. Every time you think of what is written here, open your heart and send some Love energy into the Universe. When you are in discussion with another person, energize Love in the conversation. When you are in a disagreement, surround yourself with the Light of Love so that your words will be filled with that vibration and will not devolve into words of anger or lower vibrations.

Think thoughts of Love. You do not need to walk around in la-la land but the hippies of the 60s had a good idea about sharing the Love. “Make Love Not War” is more than a bumper sticker!

Choose to be the transmitter of Love out into the ‘Verse. We can counteract all those other energies by being conscious of the impact of our own transmissions. Let’s tell the rest of the Cosmos that not all humans live in fear, anger and hatred. Those of us who have chosen to live a Conscious Life are transmitting the energy signature of Love!

There’s ‘No power in the ‘Verse…’ as strong as Love!

MYSTIC MESSAGE from The Divine Feminine: What are you transmitting?

Dear Ones,

From the perspective of Space, beyond the Solar System, there is an energy being emitted by the Planet Earth that is created by the human beings on her surface. Every thought, every spoken word, every broadcast, every emotion, creates a pattern in the energy signature of Planet Earth in the Cosmos.

What is your contribution to the energy signature?

When scientists have attempted to create a signal in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence they have chosen very deliberate signals to send out into Space. They know that the energy of those signals will transmit for great distances with no understanding of exactly who or what will receive them. Nor is there any idea of how these signals might be interpreted.

You, too, are a transmitter of energy into the Cosmos. Your thoughts are energy moving out of you and into Space. Your emotions create energy waves that also pulse outward from your personal energetic field. What you speak cannot be taken back because it rides out of you on sound waves that continue beyond you into Space.

What is your contribution to the energy signature of Planet Earth?

In the 21st Century it is time for individuals to take responsibility for the energy that is transmitting off the Planet. What is being broadcast into the airwaves from your TV and Radio transmitters? Are you comfortable with that energy being the signature by which your Planet is identified?

Think about the importance of little things like the TV shows that you watch. If this is what you wish your human society to be judged by, then choose your viewing time wisely. Whether you wish it to be true or not, you are identifying yourself with all that is being transmitted from Earth.

In this time in history, there is more hatred and vitriol being transmitted than ever before. The frequencies that are associated with this energy are of low vibration and do not represent a highly-evolved society. Is this what you want to be the signature of your Planet Earth?

You cannot merely ignore what is happening around you. Many people are choosing to feed the hatred and to increase its power to transmit. Anger and fear also feed this low vibration energy and increase the power of the transmission. Are you contributing to this?

The strongest power in the Universe is the power of Love. Can you project this outwardly so that the hatred, anger and vitriol are counteracted in the energy signature of Earth?

Increase the energy of Love in your heart. Ramp up the power of Love and send it outward. Transmit Love for others, for the Planet, for the history and future of the peoples of Earth.

Make your contribution to the energy signature be a counteracting frequency that cancels out the waves of low vibration energy. Visualize the Light of Love and imagine that it is radiating off the Planet and out into the Cosmos. Feel Love in your heart and think thoughts of Love. Live your Conscious Life filling your own energy space with Love by consciously choosing this vibration.

You have a lot of anger and hatred to counteract. But you can increase the Love and make the Planet Earth glow with the Light of Love so that anyone looking at her from Outer Space will know that the heart of humanity is one filled with Love.

Make it so.

And so it is.
