June 2017 Issue
We’ve got Abraham Lincoln here; we’ve got Thomas Jefferson here, along with many more ‘guides in spirit’ who watch over us. As we celebrate those who are graduating, we can be assured there truly is guidance from beyond for those who ask and become aware of this phenomenon. A Course In Miracles (ACIM) states, “If you knew who walked beside you, you could never be afraid.” I say, “If you knew who guided you from spirit, what would you ask their love, light and wisdom on? And why are you waiting?” All you need do is ask. (See ad on page 5.)
Speaking of ACIM, check out what ideas Course expert Beverly Hutchinson-McNeff offers in helping us respond to our life’s events, p. 15.
Steve Freier reviewed The Gentle Art of Blessing that offers an awareness of and practical ideas of what we can do to help ourselves and the world, p. 8.
Roberta Grimes shares some of her research into reincarnation, p. 6. It is my feeling that if we don’t learn the principles of love and light, we return to Earth school until we do.
There is so much more in this edition, I invite you to read it all. Let’s become aware that life is a continual prayer. What we focus on comes to pass, so let us be reminded that not only do we need love and light, but our dear Mother Earth needs it too, perhaps now more than ever. Light always wins over darkness but it is up to us to decide where we place our personal power. Spend a few minutes every day to send your love to yourself, your fellow travelers, and to the Earth. The Glory of Light Meditation from my book Heaven Help Me! – A Celestial Guide To Healing, is one idea how to do this, p. 3.
Until next time, let’s clear away all of the dark debris from our hearts and minds and let the light and love of our true selves shine!

On many levels, and for many people I know, April was a challenging month! I faced my fear of shoulder replacement surgery and did it, while soon after my associate editor, Kathleen Jacoby, fell in her house and broke her arm! I can think of two other friends who were also hospitalized during this time. In retrospect, I feel these incidences were designed to wake us up to something important and to get our attention to change our thoughts and direction. If we get an inkling to make a change and we ignore the prompting, the voice will get louder and louder until it finally gets our attention. Turning up the volume can happen in many ways. I feel it is necessary for everyone to create an ‘angel code’ and become 100 percent aware of that code when it sounds, to avoid any undo heartache or frustration. Angel Talk speaks to this. (See article on this page.)
And whenever we move through one of life’s challenges that I will call ‘April Showers’ — we can be sure that there is a gift or benefit that awaits us on the other side of it, that I will refer to as ‘May Flowers.’ There is evidence of this phenomena throughout this issue, and it is my sincerest hope that no matter what challenge you are presently facing, something quite wonderful awaits you in the balance. If you are not clear what that could be, contact me and I will do a reading for you… which, by the way, I have on sale this month to make up for the down time I had in April. Enjoy the flowers!

On April 3rd I will undergo shoulder replacement surgery – something I have run from for about three years, trying anything else that came to me to try. Finally, exhausting my search, there are no other alternatives to correct this problem. Feeling depressed that I did not get the ‘miracle’ I prayed for, the angels chimed in one day recently to let me know that surgery IS the answer to my prayer! (Read more in Angel Talk on this page.)
There is much to ponder about prayer in this issue, including the need to keep it open-ended at the top and to add ‘this or something better’ to our prayers. Bill Sweet reminds us of having the right intention in prayer, page 5. Bev Brunelle writes about the importance of staying mindful and how this awareness helps us on our path of self-discovery, page 20. Need healing? Try talking to your cells, page 7.
We are featuring a look at the history of the Easter celebration and its Pagan roots, pages 8-10. I am also happy to welcome our new columnist and stone healer, Diane Bloom. This month she is featuring the benefits of Citrine, page 21. Meredith Young-Sowers gives us thoughts to ponder regarding the crop circles, page 11. Barry Kerr has your Astro-Outlook for April, pages 12-13. Steve Freier reviewed a spiritual classic, ‘Living With the Himalayan Masters, page 6. And for healing the house, Dana Claudat offers tips for Spring cleaning, page 14. Also included are some tips to help keep the Earth and oceans clean of plastic debris, page 18; and Roberta Grimes offers seven signs we commonly receive from the deceased, page 16.
I hope you enjoy this entire issue!

March Flipbook Version
As we prepare for the advent of spring, we recognize that after the long winter, we are seeing the emergence of creativity and new growth. Yet even as the official beginning of Spring is not until March 21, the evidence of its full arrival requires patience, as nature may withhold the full blossoming of its potential until later. This helps us to recognize the importance of living now and appreciating the things we can do that prepare us for greater opportunities and warmer weather later. We don’t need to rush. We can appreciate where we are and who we are with, and we can see the benefit of taking time.
We note in this issue that patience is called for, but so is the awareness that we are not alone – that our loved ones who have passed over are still with us and make their presence known in many large and small ways. There is comfort and joy that we can provide to others, and as we look at the clues that nature and our loved ones in spirit provide, life becomes a remarkable journey. Let us now engage in choosing those things that are good for our health, our creative abilities, and that make our lives, and the lives of others worthwhile.
