This issue is dedicated to the memory of my most memorable character and dearest friend, Richard Jerome Bennett who died on May 20, 2014 from Pancreatic Cancer. If you knew him, you will know him far better and what he did to raise the peace and love and higher consciousness of the planet. If you did not know him, you will meet his spirit on these pages, for he is with us still.

I do not wish to take up much space with this letter, but let this entire issue speak to the life of our dear friend, artist, painter, pianist, composer, singer and peacemaker – loved by all who knew him in this lifetime and in all other lifetimes – forever throughout eternity.
If you can be still for a moment, you may hear him say: “OM TAT SAT. Sound is Truth.” Rest in Peace, Richard.

P.S. We will return to our normal format and columns next issue.

Dear Readers,

This issue of The Inner Voice e-magazine is to bring awareness of the power that our thoughts and imagination have on our lives. The effects are evident, and if we become aware of what we are thinking, we can see the pathways of our creations. The good news is that we can always re-imagine and change the direction of what we want to create instead. This issue offers some ‘proof!’ In fact, this entire magazine is a result of imagination.

A few years ago I had a startling scare from the results of a pap smear test. The call came for me to see the doctor immediately for further tests. Funny how these calls always seem to happen on a holiday – Christmas Eve in this case, and I had to wait a few days before I could see the doctor for a D&C test. In my fear-filled mind, I had myself dead and buried within the first few minutes of hearing the results. Luckily for me, I had the awareness of the ability to re-create this. I knew to reach deeper for the angels’ guidance and I chose to follow their voice. They said to visualize (with all my imagination) that all my cells were in excellent health. I laid beneath my colored healing lamp and visualized the ‘Great White Light’ shining in me, clearing any dark spots away into nothingness. When the day came for my next, more invasive D&C tests, the results turned up nothing! Anything abnormal that may have been there before had disappeared!

We have the power to create so why not create happy, healthy lives? I invite you to read what my contributors have written this month to ignite your imagination to heal something in your life. Take time to investigate what’s in your psyche and choose something you would prefer to experience. Carve a happy face on your pumpkin this year!

Dear Readers,
In this issue, I am bringing back my friend and ‘miracle worker,’ Rev, Joann Baumann and her column, “Miracles I’ve Seen” (page 10). Her work was the initial inspiration for publishing The Inner Voice back in 1992. In this issue, I hope her own healing story will inspire you.

Recently, I heard someone complain that prayer doesn’t work. I will stand my ground and say, oh yes it does, (this entire issue is about prayer and about how changing our thoughts and beliefs can even reverse illness!). But, the problem with prayer (I will guess) is that we pray, on an average of an hour a week … on Sunday while in church (that is, if one goes to church). In addition, a person may pray (on bended knee) a few minutes out of the day. If that’s 5 minutes a day, time 7 days a week, that totals 35 minutes a week. Plus the hour in church, it comes to a grand total of 95 minutes a week. I publish this e-magazine to help increase spiritual awareness, and I believe this may be the crux of the problem. So now, considering that we spend the rest of the time, (all 1,345 minutes) thinking fear-filled thoughts and worried about war, what we’re wearing, what our neighbors are doing and judging everything and everyone, tell me, what will manifest in your world? Do you think it will be what we thought about for 95 minutes, or what we worried about the remainder of the week?

ALL THOUGHT CREATES! All thought has effect. Prayer indeed works, and it works because it is our focused attention on a thought. What we think about for 1,345 minutes a week stands a far better chance of manifesting in our lives than what we ‘pray’ about for 95 minutes a week! Become a shepherd over your thoughts. Start with one day this month, World Prayer Day, September 11. Don’t give up if you find it impossible to control your wandering mind. Notice what you’re thinking about and then gently bring your thoughts back to what you want to create. As in forming any new habit, it may take practice! How to pray? See page 13 for one of the best descriptions of prayer I’ve read in a long time. Let’s start with World Prayer Day and then expand it to the day after, and then to the day after, and the day after that … until we see peace in all the World.

Dear Readers,
This is a super special issue! Immersing oneself in nature is like immersing yourself in the realm of the angels! These beings of light and wisdom appear in many forms – as nature spirits, devas, elves, and the like – and they have one main purpose…to help humans! The more sensitive and attuned we become to their vibration, the easier it is for us to hear, see and trust we are assisted by them. Our connection with them, I believe, is a vital key to our healing ourselves of anything.

Some years ago I recall being in a field of tall grasses alongside a sandy beach. At first when I arrived, it appeared I was alone and that not much was happening. I settled myself down on a blanket, got my notebook out and closed my eyes as I took some deep breaths to relax into this space. When I opened my eyes to start writing, I was amazed by the transformation I saw! This place, that with my normal range of senses dictated ‘not much happening here,’ became the scene of a rather intense drama. I began writing notes and filled several pages. What I wrote that day became a chapter in my book, Heaven Help Me.

In this issue, I am pleased to present some of the things that have happened to certain individuals after they’ve opened to this realm of possibilities. Probably the most well known eco-village is Findhorn in Scotland, page 16. Then there’s Penny Kelly, the author of The Elves of Lily Hill Farm. I’ve known about her work with the elves since the ‘90s when my brother, Steve Freier, interviewed her for his radio show at her farm in Michigan. Her inspirational story is on page 6 – exclusive for The Inner Voice. Click to hear his radio interview with her on page 9.

Angel Talk answers a couple of questions about communicating with these “little ones” (as the angels call them). I wish you to be inspired to call on the nature spirits for any assistance you need in your garden, landscape design, or for healing something in your physical body. Tune in and listen to these amazing little helpers! If you want to learn how, contact me and let’s schedule a class!

That’s all for now. I’ll let you get busy reading this amazing issue. As always, please share the link with all your friends on Facebook and e-mail. It’s the best way we know of to freely spread the good ‘inner’ word.

Dear Readers,
In case you are not aware of this, the angels seem to be behind everything in life. We get a thought out of the blue, or a nudge to react quickly to something. Where does that come from? Chances are it’s coming from our beloved guardians in spirit, who live and have their being on a different level of vibration than we do. We normally cannot see them with our normal range of vision, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t pulling the strings on our reality from behind the curtain.TIV Red Bird kid's art

In an ongoing search for finding that elusive “Do what you love and the money will follow,” I recently came across someone’s Internet survey that asked a similar question: “What did you do as a kid that totally absorbed and enthralled you; that held your attention for hours of pure enjoyment that you didn’t realize the time passing?” Answer this and you can be pretty sure that’s what you’re on Earth to do with your life. My answer to this question was CREATING. As a kid that meant creating art – drawing, coloring, painting. Anything that involved art in any way, shape, or form, I was in. (Also swimming, but that’s another story.) Give me a box of crayons, a stack of paper, or a new coloring book and I was flying high for hours. Later on, it morphed into designing clothes for my dolls – paper and cloth, and sewing, stitching, embroidering. The list goes on and on.

Creating still spells FUN to me. Any creative activity, whether it’s designing someone’s home or work space to function better, to giving an inspirational talk that moves and inspires people; to sewing new clothes from thrift store finds; to stitching a sampler, or gathering fabrics for a quilt – it is all time well-spent, feeding my spirit and using creative energy wisely … having FUN. Fun IS inspiration! Fun IS creating! Fun IS making something out of nothing! Fun IS the action of rising out of the ashes of something that has burned off – no longer needed in this lifetime – a sure sign it’s time to move on … move on like a bird from branch to branch to branch.

The angels guide us throughout life. Life IS the process. Life IS creation in action. Art IS the result of the creative force that moves through us in myriad ways…expressing uniquely and differently in each of us.

Don’t think you’re creative? Think again! It’s the very energy that you breathe in every second of every day. It is the lifeline to the infinite – to the connection you have to the Universe and everything in it that you see, feel, touch ….. and IMAGINE! Imagination is REAL where the angels are.
How many times have we heard ‘Dream it and it happens. Build it and they will come?’ These are metaphors and guideposts along the way. What is the desire pulling you in your heart? Discover it and uncover it. Listen to your inner longing for that which you loved doing as a child and your life path will explode with FUN and excitement before your very eyes.

I hope that you will be inspired by the ideas presented throughout this issue. May they ignite your passion to create something wonderful – now!

Dear Readers,
.
Many new and exciting energies happening this month… First, this issue is mostly about creating new and exciting energy – in your life AND your home. Sometimes what is needed first is to release and dispel the negative energy lingering after an illness or an argument; and, not only is The Inner Voice providing written articles, but also LIVE links to YouTube videos that you can watch.

Starting next month I hope The Inner Voice will expand to wider audiences by becoming a Source of Light and Events for the spiritual seeker within all of us. We will be adding a calender of events in NE Wisconsin.

Back to this issue… Angel Talk is all about creating and seeing subtle energy (this page). We kick off the video links this month with a few by Eric Robeson who demonstrates how to see energy and auras, and how to disperse ‘bad’ energy from the home, p. 6. On page 12 we learn how to “Create a Plasma Ball Between the Palms of Your Hands.”

Attention baseball fans! Roving reporter, Steve Freier submitted an article revealing Lou Gehrig returns to baseball in 2014 … and on page 13, Bev Brunelle suggests how to raise our energy by ‘putting on a new groove.’

I needed all the good advice to get this issue published on time after learning the sad news that my longtime, dear friend and creative contributor to The Inner Voice since 1992, Richard Jerome Bennett, passed into spirit on May 20, 2014. Next month we will pay very special tribute to him. Until then, rest in peace, Dude, I love you.

Dear Readers,
It is officially urgent. The Angels are alerting us to wake up and find ways to live within the natural laws – even if just in prayerful contemplation to begin with. We’re on red alert! We’ve entered the midnight hour. Just look around. Look at all the disasters and craziness that Mother Nature has been displaying. We need to stop burying our heads in the sand and WAKE UP or there may be no sand in which to bury our heads! This morning’s headline read, “Deadly Storms Slam South.” One after the next, tornadoes are causing massive, widespread destruction. This news perhaps has made us image, clean up your messblind and deaf to them, there’ve been so many, but the angels plead, WAKE UP!

Perhaps we need reminding of just how powerful our thoughts are, and they directly affect the wind, the earth and the seas. If you want proof, just go outside on a partly cloudy day. Pick a small cloud and ask, “If it be all right with the Universe, I demand that cloud to disappear.” Then, watch it disappear! It is not a trick your eyes will play on you – we need to be mindful of what we’re thinking about all day long. If what you’re thinking isn’t what you want to see in the world, change your thoughts. We all need to do this.

This month we pay tribute to Mothers everywhere, including Mother Earth. In your thoughts, send your love to this little jewel in the Universe, and become an advocate for healing Mother Earth, this place we call home.

Thank you!

Dear Readers,
I am writing this letter in late March and it’s about 20 degrees outside. Although the calender says we’re into Spring, it is still shivering cold! I am trying to turn my thoughts to April and imagine the warmth that’s sure to come after the cold April Showers! The good news? May flowers. We start thinking Spring with Bev Brunelle as she tip toes through the tulips and other Spring flowers. (p. 16). With April we also think of taxes. I was curious as to what the angels had to say about that. Their answer is on this page.

For years I’ve had an intrinsic interest in the Akashic Records. I first heard the term years ago in various books by Edgar Cayce and other mystical writings. Mary Nelson is able to open and read ‘The Records.’ I think it is fascinating to learn about other lifetimes. See her interview on pages 6-7. Kari Uselmann of Wellness Essentials, offers ideas for transformation. In a session with her I was able to magically release something that was causing some pain! See p. 10. Asia Voight, Animal Communicator shares some enlightening ideas of how our pets have more than love to give (p. 12).

Also in this issue are many ideas for spring clearing and cleaning. Enjoy this issue and as usual, please pass it on to your friends! Happy Spring!
