My life has been blessed with angels who protect, guide, inspire and heal.  In fact, I’ve have actually been ‘saved’ at least four times.  The season for snow is fast approaching in the Chicago area.  The thought reminds me of an experience from the past where guidance was desperately needed.  My youngest son and I would occasionally cross-country ski together.  On this particular day of my story, a strong wind and dark clouds foretold more snow for our area.  Although I was hesitant about the weather forecast, my son enthusiastically urged me on.  We drove to a forest area of largely unmarked ski and hiking trails just outside Chicago.

Looking back, I remember we began our adventure in the early morning. Although the cold was already penetrating my skin after a couple hours of skiing, my son suggested we explore the trail further. I hesitated but agreed.  At first it was fun, but several hours later, I couldn’t find a familiar marking due to the falling snow.  I realized we were lost.

Without flare, matches, or whistle, and seeing no place to take refuge from the storm, I was very concerned for our safety.  I knew the temperature would plummet further as day turned into night.  I also remembered a recent newspaper report of a pack of wild dogs in the area.  Not knowing what else to do, I prayed out loud for help.  My son got down on his knees as well.

Suddenly, in the vastness of what appeared as an endless white landscape devoid of human activity or animals, two forms appeared in the distance. From their clothes we assumed one was male, the other female, but otherwise their features were indistinct.  They motioned us to follow them. We were stunned and grateful.  You see, during our entire adventure, we had not seen one human soul.

I was exhausted.  We had been trudging through banks of snow for hours.  The two motioning us to follow them never said a word.  This was strange.  In fact, they kept their distance.  For some reason, I didn’t think about it at the time.  I only wanted to be somewhere warm and protected.  My entire focus was on gripping my son’s hand, literally for dear life, and surviving. I remember falling a few times as a result of exhaustion.  I have never liked cold weather.

Night had fallen by the time we finally recognized a familiar sight…the shack near the spot where I had left my car. In that instant of recognition, our rescuers vanished as mysteriously as they had appeared…without a trace and without a word.  I repeat…no other people or cars were anywhere to be seen, only my car and a shack.  In that moment of isolation and loving rescue guided back to the car, I just knew that the figures that unexpectedly appeared in the distance motioning us to follow them were angels.  Who else would be out at night in a heavy snowstorm beside us? Obviously, only holy beings, guardian angels!

We both cried out to the sky words of deep gratitude and immense relief!  The next day, I
 revisited the ski rental shack and told the attendant our story.  She was stunned.  As a result of our foolishness, the park district placed an order for markers to be installed along a trail that would be safe for the experienced skier and the inexperienced adventurers like my son and I.

Always trusting,

The intention providing life to what I share is to bring and support the light, love and wisdom of your true Nature into physicality.  You are the one who must discover your natural state.  You succeed by being earnest, questioning and fearless.  Together, we keep our mind and heart in harmony. We support each other and encourage a steady remembrance.
As light minded beings, we are a blessing to each other.   All blessings come from within.  We encourage meditation.   Meditation not only develops character, daily practice is a springboard to the source of life and a high consciousness.  Eventually, the high consciousness leads to full awareness, the purity of our natural state.
Our happiness comes from the inner and not the outer.  The outer tools, classes and workshops clear confusion and help you remember.  What is encouraged is clarity of mind and purity of heart.
There is immense suffering occurring all over the world.  It is within our power to end it. We begin by the healing of the self.  To be successful, we must have a constant and strong desire.  What you will discover is that there is nothing to discover.  You are what you are and that is all.  You are the pure awareness that illumines consciousness.  That consciousness is living as you and me.
It is up to us to purify the mind and body and create a well-ordered and useful life.  We do this by observing our thoughts, feelings, words and actions.  We support one another as we sincerely strive to clear our vision and remove attachments in the mind.  Living in duality, we must watch ourselves continuously and discover our true nature.  Go within.
In our sacred workshops, we gently move into an awareness that is total, changeless, calm and silent.  We go beyond consciousness into awareness.  I speak of that which we were in our pure and original state…beyond time and space.
If you are devoted to your goal and live a clean and orderly life, your return to wholeness will be spontaneous.  This does not mean that you are completely free of desire or fear. It means that you are conscious of human nature and can easily manage it.  Self-control becomes second nature.  Why not be a true reflection of who you really are?

Coming soon: a fairy tale for old souls, ‘The Queen and the Unicorn

Friday, October 11, 2013



I have written in a 48 hour period my first fairy tale, The Unicorn and the Queen. It is filled with ancient wisdom for people who are aware. If you feel moved to make a donation to help with the self-publishing, please visit the first page of my website, and click on the DONATION button.

The rough draft was recently read to a small group. They were stunned! I wish a camera had been available to capture the look of amazement on their shining faces. In the fairy tale, the Unicorn is used as a powerful Voice symbolizing our inner divine nature. Medieval people loved symbolism. It was only natural for them to equate spiritual truths with the things they saw in nature...plants and animals alike. The Unicorn is a unique representative of a divine and breathtaking oneness. It is also a symbol of purity, strength, salvation, inward calmness and healing of wounds.


It is said that dreams are the playground of unicorns. The playground of the Unicorn brilliantly maximizes the quality of life possible in wholeness and a willing attunement with nature. The tale explains three perspectives, kingdoms, existing in the collective buried dream. The direct and ancient message is one of hope and encouragement reminding souls of their inner greatness and waiting potential.

Years ago, I had a personal experience with a unicorn who suddenly appeared as I was writing at my desk. He was standing on his hind legs.

The fairy tale is divinely inspired and an offering that is an unexpected and joyous surprise for me. My other new manuscript, a novel, will soon be completed as well. The title of the novel is 'Visitor from Heaven'. It is personal and very unusual.

Both gifts of love encourage readers to willingly merge in harmony with the natural laws and the unconditional love of the universe.

You are invited to be a living part of the free flow of cosmic energy and share in its loving power.

In harmony,
