There IS a plan!

First off, please disregard how awful I look in this impulse video after a long day at my “day job” and not sleeping for about a week.  Don’t even get me started on the bad lighting and dirty hair.  LOL!  I do think it’s funny that Chakra keeps walking back and forth though.  I just wish she’d stop pulling her beautiful fur out!  Anyway…

In this video I talk about what happened this past weekend when I flew from ABQ to BWI to ROC and back again.  Magical “coincidences” occurred, that just go to show that there are no accidents.  There IS a plan.  Granted, as of this minute, my life has not dramatically changed because of what happened…but I trust that something is being plotted from the Other Side.

When I visited my parents in Rochester, NY, my aunt and uncle drove up from Horseheads on Saturday to go to lunch and socialize.  After lunch at Jay’s Diner (cool 1950s place) we went back to mom and dad’s to talk for a while before they had to leave.  While talking, my heart started racing and I got that “Uh oh.  We’re not alone.” feeling.  And, yep, my grandpa and uncle in spirit jumped at the chance to have me bring some messages through for mom, her sister, and her brother.  So, that wasn’t an accident either.

While bored at work today, I started cleaning out a folder I have in Gmail where I store things I think I’ll either need again, or things that are just cool.  This one email from a name I didn’t recognize in April 2014 popped out at me.  When I opened it, it was from a lovely stranger who had found my blog and picked up some psychic info she wanted to pass onto me.  Part of what she wrote to me about pertained to Julia Cameron’s “The Artist’s Way”…which was written while Julia was in my beloved Taos.  She sent me an excerpt from the book where Julia talks about writing 3 daily morning pages.  It’s funny because that has been popping into my head lately and I’ve wanted to do it, but just haven’t because I already have to get up at 6 a.m. to go to work and don’t want to get up 30 minutes earlier to write.  God knows I need what little sleep I get!

Reading that blurb made me start Googling Julia Cameron, and when I landed upon her Twitter account…guess how many tweets she had posted?  Keeping in mind that the number 333 means Masters are with you in spirit…she had 3333!  https://www.instagram.com/p/BT7wMobAxRi/ I truly gasped!  Quite a few years ago in Los Angeles, I had gone to hear someone (can’t even recall now who the woman was) give a free talk at The Bodhi Tree, but due to flight problems, she wasn’t able to get to L.A. in time and asked her friend, Julia, to fill in for her.  Since everything happens for a reason, it ended up being a REALLY interesting talk and I discovered Julia Cameron at that time.  Finding out much later that she had been drawn to Taos too, just made me like her even more!  She now lives in Santa Fe and here is her site:  http://juliacameronlive.com/

Well, it’s getting late and I need to go to bed, but please trust that there is a plan…and there are no accidents in life.  Chance encounters 10-15 years earlier may be important later.  I’ve had conversations with strangers where I know I’ll never see the person again, but that conversation changed my life.  Sometimes we all are used as angels.

In light,

Veer off your path and find magic!

Since I’ve got commitment issues and am still not committing to this great apartment with washer/dryer hookups by buying a washer and dryer, I drove to the cheap laundromat I like in Espanola this a.m. to do my laundry.  This laundromat always has friendly people in it (and free coffee!) but today I got to chatting with this nice man who turned out to be a fabulous artist named Walter W. Nelson.  We chatted about various things, including art and writing and living in isolated areas.  He agreed that I effed up when I got shy 20 years ago and turned down Neil Simon’s offer to mentor me as a writer.  (He’s friends with a successful writer and neighbor in Abiquiu.)  But he also said something important to me.  When I mentioned that I’m not sure WHAT to write as I am all over the place with ideas, he said, “Just write.  Don’t try to figure it out.  Just write.”  (I’m paraphrasing.)  We had one of those brief, fateful interactions that are clearly destined…and not accidents.  Walter may not know it, but I think he was used as a messenger/angel today for me.

By the way, I looooove this quote from his writer friend’s bio:  In 1986, Preston piled everything he owned into the back of a Subaru and moved from New York City to Santa Fe to write full time, following the advice of S. J. Perelman that “the dubious privilege of a freelance writer is he’s given the freedom to starve anywhere.”

After lunch, I got the urge to go to El Santurio de Chimayo as I felt the need for spiritual/emotional healing and my 21+ years of constant head/neck pain has been slowly killing me…literally.  On the way to Chimayo, I got the urge (was listening to urges today and it turned out magical) to veer off to go to the Nambe Trading Post I’ve heard about.  As fate would have it, today was day 1 of their opening for the summer season!  The place has fabulous stuff, including movie memorabilia and a real Emmy Award!  As a vegan, some of the dead animal stuff was upsetting, but, it is part of the Native American culture and history, so I dealt with it.  I wanted to buy tons of the things they had for sale, but controlled myself.  Ha!  And, of course, I wanted to steal the Emmy! 😉 The Nambe Trading Post has some great art.

After that, I continued onto my end goal…El Santuario de Chimayo.  But, as I went to turn onto Highway 98 from Highway 503, I saw a sign pointing down further on 503 that mentioned a LAKE.  When I see anything that mentions lakes, I get excited.  So, I decided to go exploring and stay on 503.  It was a very winding and pretty drive and I discovered a tiny town I’d never heard of before named Cundiyo.  I had no cell reception there and asked some locals if I was near a lake…and they kindly gave me directions.  (Everyone I interacted with today was freaking LOVELY!  People waved at me in Chimayo like they do in Taos!)

Finally, I got to Santa Cruz Lake.  I have never heard of Santa Cruz Lake!  It’s wonderful!  There is always more to find in magical New Mexico!  I only stayed for a little while, so the parking attendant didn’t charge me the $5 fee because I told him I just wanted to take some pictures and wouldn’t stay long.  (See what I mean about nice people today?)

Eventually I continued on and found a pretty restaurant called Rancho de Chimayo where they let me wander around and explore even though I wasn’t eating there.  (Nice people yet again!)  I am definitely going to eat there this year.  It has wonderful ambiance and I heard GOOD margaritas!

Finally…but it was a lovely warm, spring-like day…so I wasn’t in a rush…I made it to El Santuario de Chimayo.  I explored more of the areas around the church than usual, and sat inside this chapel just down the block.

chapel

chapel interiorI was alone in Santo Nino de Atocha chapel…and it had GREAT energy of holiness.  There truly is power in places where people go to pray.  It clearly affects the vibration of the place.  I felt reverence.  I felt God.  This chapel was built in 1857.

I got talking to yet another kind man who pointed me toward what looked like a tiny house (I’m obsessed with tiny houses.) but was actually a tiny chapel.  (It’s on my http://www.instagram.com/atheria444 account.  I’m too tired to find it and post it.)  He promised me that if I went inside and shut the door, I’d be filled with peace…that I’d feel God.  And, he was right.  There was a sense of peace inside that tiny building.  But, it was also hot and stuffy so I didn’t stay long.  LOL

I got coffee from a local Chimayo coffee house/art gallery and had a wonderful conversation with my barista/gifted artist.  Yep…..another wonderful interaction with a stranger today.  (There was also a guy driving past me, who, when I looked lost in my car, asked me what I was looking for and helpfully pointed me in the right direction.)

With coffee in hand, I headed to El Santuario.

chimayochimayo interior

I was raised Catholic, but am not Catholic anymore…but do appreciate and love OLD churches.  I have to respect those who TRULY take their religion/faith seriously.  There was a family in fervent prayer.  In small New Mexico towns like Chimayo the people live, breathe, and eat their faith.  And, their reverence for Jesus/God clearly not only shows in their interactions with others, but also affects the energy of the place.  The energy there is FABULOUS.

I did go into the back room this time, where the holy healing dirt is.  I followed directions and rubbed some of it on my damaged neck.  I also asked God for help regarding both physical and emotional healing so that I could accomplish the things my soul came here to do in this incarnation.  Right now the physical pain, which is 24/7 and worsening by the year, sucks too much of my energy.  I struggle just to get through the day.  If I’m supposed to do major spiritual work….I need relief….and I need it now.

I will say that sitting in some of the prayer areas of both the main church, and the other chapel….where people put up photos of loved ones who need prayers (lots of babies)….hits you.  It was a bit overwhelming just how many people are suffering….and how much love there is within families/friends.

When it was time to leave, I got into Ruby (my red Honda Fit) and looked down to see that it was exactly 4:44 p.m.!  As I’ve mentioned before, 444 is a sign that angels are with you!  Perfect timing!

As I was driving home on Highway 503, I tilted my head up a bit to avoid the sun that was directly in my eyes, when suddenly my neck…up at the very top where my skull sits on C1 and I’m convinced my main problem is…snapped/cracked!  It was weird!  Something clearly shifted!  I thought to myself, “Oh my God!  El Santuario de Chimayo is going to fix my neck!”  Now, a few hours later my 21+ years long headache is still here…but…something DOES feel different.  I really do thing something good happened.  I’m trying to control my hope, but I have a little hope after being hopeless for a very long time.  Wouldn’t it be awesome to wake up tomorrow and be out of pain because I rubbed dirt on my neck?!

When I got home, this is what I saw:

I saw God in the sky.  New Mexico makes you feel and EXPERIENCE God.  I can’t really explain it to those who don’t get it.  But, this land is truly magical.  I may not be happy, in general, and definitely need to find more fulfilling work that doesn’t suck my soul dry…but I’m where I’m meant to be.  My soul knows that Northern NM is where I’m meant to be.  I never was meant to be in Albuquerque.  Northern NM is what I resonate with.  And the people are SO friendly and kind up here!  I want to live where strangers wave at you!

Blessings,

To Thine Own Self Be True (Channeled)

To Thine Own Self Be True

We come here today as there is a desperate need for each and every one of you to go within…to tune into your heart and soul and be true to them. For too long, too many of you have done what society and dogma says you “should” do in order to be responsible adults. “Should” SHOULD be a dirty 4 letter word. There are no “shoulds” in our realm. Everything is learning. Everything is growth. Even if a soul makes choices that are counter to what it had agreed to before it came into being, all is not lost. Nothing is wasted.

There is much unrest and unhappiness on your planet because people have cut themselves off from what their souls want to express. We say to you, it is better to be a “starving artist” living in a VW Bus than be a drone who is only going through the motions of life while climbing the corporate ladder, to the detriment of one’s health. For bad health is a major barometer. Listen to your body. It speaks. Sometimes it screams. Pay attention to what comes out of your mouth SEEMINGLY inconsequentially. Nothing you say on a whim is unimportant. Language is like a canary in a coal mine. It warns of danger. Lines such as “I feel suffocated.” “I just want to scream and run away.” “What a pain in the neck.” All of these types of sayings actually mean something! Listen!

We can guarantee each and every one of you that you did not go through the trouble of being born, only to spend your entire incarnation miserable and in physical, mental, and emotional pain. But, sometimes you must do something very scary to find the happiness that is meant for you. You must be fearless. Sure, you can do research and put a safety net in place for yourself just in case, but sometimes a safety net turns out to be a crutch. Sometimes you can only succeed by walking on a tight rope without a net. The most important thing is to tune into what your stomach feels/says when making a life altering decision. There was a story our channel heard about a very successful businessman who said that whenever he had to make a business decision, he’d chew on the various options and swallow them. If an answer made his stomach feel sick, he didn’t do it. He only said yes to the options that felt good in his gut.

Now more than ever the universe needs you NOT to hide your light under a bushel. Now more than ever every single soul on planet Earth needs to shine. By shining, not only do you thrive, but you illuminate those around you and it becomes infectious. That is how you can save the planet…one light at a time.

Blessings,
The Illumined Ones

Angel Visitation in 2005

I don’t think I’ve blogged about this before, but if I have, I’ll blame it on my advancing age…and memory issues. 🙂

Angels are real.

Angels are real.

Back in 2005 I was in the midst of horrendous stress due to being framed by my sister’s creep boyfriend and his slimy friends in a $400,000 out-of-state real estate scam.  It was REALLY, REALLY bad.  (I thought I knew Tony after 9 years, but, nope.)  I was getting threatened by mafia connected people, along with 5 mortgage companies.  I was in total panic and didn’t know what to do.  I shook all the time.  I couldn’t sleep.  I was losing hair and weight.  I was a wreck.  My mind raced all night long trying to figure out how I could get myself out of that mess and prove my innocence.

One night, as I lay in bed with my mind going in circles trying to figure a way out, all of a sudden this vwoosh of wind (kind of felt like wind but it’s hard to accurately describe) went through my body.  As it did, all my tension melted away and I went limp as this unbelievable feeling of peace filled me and this knowing came to me that I was going to be okay.  I laid there for a couple of minutes with this WOW feeling as I asked myself, “Did that really happen?”  Although I was impressed with what happened and tried to go to sleep, within a few minutes after that I unconsciously started to tense up with worry and anxiety again!  As before, this vwoosh of wind went through my body and I was again filled with incredible peace as all my tension disappeared and I knew, without question, that I was going to be okay.  After that, I decided to believe it, and fell asleep.

The next day, my whole attitude changed.  I got more threatening phone calls and letters, but took an attitude of, “You don’t scare me.  I’m protected.”  It made all the difference in the world.  And, since that time, things have happened that have clearly been divine intervention protecting me from the fallout of that horrid real estate scam.  Think impossibly weird events…that I can’t go into details about here.

So when I say I know there are angels and some Master Creator…that is not a belief or something I’ve been taught.  It’s a knowing from direct experience.  You cannot teach that.  It’s experienced.

In Light,

Atheria

Channeled Message – Nov. 4, 2012

The Light = God


We are here from the 5th generation of the 5th dimension. We come from the star cluster you call the Pleiades. We are the children of the Light. From whence we came, so do you. As all is from the Light. Some term the Light God, but then put limitations on it. They impose human attributes like love, hate, and revenge…when they couldn’t be further from the truth as to what the Light is. It has no emotions other than pure love. But even love is not quite the right word as it’s beyond what we can express in human language. It is not the type of love that you encounter here on Earth as sometimes the love you experience has conditions. This love has no conditions and no ulterior motives. It is nonjudgmental and free flowing. When you learn to tap into the Light that is within you, you too can be capable of pure love…and healing. There is great power to heal within the Light, both emotionally and physically. Of course, physical ailments stem from emotional issues. Your Louise Hay was ahead of her time decades ago but now more people are realizing the truth of her words. “Thoughts are things” is a phrase uttered by some teachers on your planet, and that statement is not more true than when talking about physical disease. The difficulty lies in the fact that even unconscious thoughts affect the body’s equilibrium and health. It takes a lot of effort and work to train not only the conscious mind to heal the body, but also the unconscious mind. This is where hypnosis is beneficial. By delving into the inner sanctum of the recesses of the mind, you can find the seeds of disease. Instead of watering the seeds, you may choose to snatch them up and throw them away. All healing takes place within the soul. The only time healing “fails”…and we hate that word…when someone tries to heal him or herself in the manner we are talking about is when it is there time to cross over to the Other Side. When it is your time, it is your time, and that cannot be changed. What people need to understand is that just because someone’s physical body “dies” it does not mean healing work was unsuccessful. For the spirit may have been healed of certain damage so it is ready for its next lessons in another incarnation. We know that is hard for you to accept, but it is the truth. And the truth shall set you free. With this, we bid you peace. Until we meet again…

Channeled Session 7-14-2012

Divine one, you are the essence of the All-That-Is.  We cannot stress enough the power each of you has to not only create, but to shape and mold that which already is.  The world that you know is but a lump of clay for you to play with and mold into whatever beautiful piece of art you would like to envision.  En-vision…we would prefer IN-vision for the vision within is that which you use to create with.  It is the inner vision, your 3rd eye…if you will…that not only sees all, but creates all.  For what you can see inside your mind, between your brows, lays the framework…the electrical grid…for what becomes physical.  Now, we use the term “physical” loosely here since nothing is totally physical.  Everything is quite simply vibration.  It’s just that certain things vibrate at such a slow speed that to your physical eyes, they are physical items.  Of course, your non-physical eyes see them as they truly are…light and energy.  A simple exercise we would suggest to you is to close your eyes and picture in your mind’s eye some food you truly love.  Let’s say you love chocolate cake.  Picture a slice of chocolate cake in your forehead area.  But not only visualize it, also smell it, note the texture of it, and taste it in your imagination.  Pretty soon, your saliva will start running and your physical body will respond.  You may end up needing to run out to a store to buy a chocolate cake as your craving will be strong.  Just as your mind is able to affect your body in that way, you can also affect everything around you for everything is connected.  Everything is filled with the same light of God…the same source.  Everything breathes light and pulses with life force, even the walls and chairs.  As you can picture, so too you can create change.  With this, we bid you adieu.  Rest in peace is not only for the dearly departed.  It is also for the living.  Rest in peace knowing that you are connected to the vibration of the universe which is God.

Channeled Message – April 1, 2012

           Be open to receive, dear one.  We are here to pass along some information that may be of benefit to not only you, but others on planet Earth.  The time has come to accept the beingness of your intrinsic power.  Many people give away their power to those they see as above them in some way.  No one is above anyone else.  You do not need to follow others’ doctrine.  We bring you this message on Christianity’s Palm Sunday for a reason.  You were speaking to someone this weekend about your feeling that religion is man-made, not God-made…and you are correct.  The One who created all has no need for religions.  The temple of God is truly within each and every one of you.  There is no need for churches and doctrine.  All is as it should be when you turn within to hear the small whisper of your soul and God.

          We are not the center of the universe, we ARE the universe.  Everything resides in everything else.  There is no “outside” ourselves.  People have wondered if beings from other planets also believe in a Master Creator, and yes, we do.  How could we not?  All it takes is looking out at the heavens to KNOW there is something in charge.  Notice we did not say “someone” in charge.  For the Great Spirit is not a person.  The Great Spirit is beyond comprehension.  We simply cannot put it into words that you can understand.  It is beyond the beyond.  Even we do not understand everything there is to understand.  In that regard, we are but children who have many grades ahead of them before graduation.  We are all learning together.  But what we can tell you is that it is imperative at this time that each and every one of you take back your power and start to question what has always been.  Just because something has always been one way does not mean it is correct.  This pertains to your politics, religions, rules, laws, and regulations.  We do find it slightly amusing just how far humans go to try to regulate everything instead of just trusting the perfect workings of the universe.  You try so hard to control the uncontrollable.  Your weather patterns are a perfect example.  You have learned the hard way in recent years that Mother Nature has the power to do what she will.  We would like to point out though, that even in the worst devastation…like what happened to Japan a year ago…good ALWAYS prevails.  A flower grows from the mud of wreckage.

          We are happy you sat down today to chat with us.  Please make it a habit.  Much work needs to be done.  With this we bid you peace and adieu.
