Why You Are Here
Living Your Deeper Song
The Creative in me honors the Creative in you!
November 19, 1932 – the day I was born. It was during the depression and there were not a lot of people having babies then. I was a young girl when I listened on the console radio at my grandfather’s house to the bombing of Pearl Harbor. I was in high school when vets came back to go to the local college on the GI Bill. I remember the first television shows. When I graduated from the University of Kansas in 1954 I remember wondering if this was all I got to learn to prepare myself for life. I learned Transcendental Meditation in the 60’s because the Beatles did. And had my four children take it too.
We are brought into a certain time frame in history for a specific purpose and we build our lives on that – either knowingly or unknowingly. I was in New York City during the ’80’s and did a lot of Reiki with AIDS patients. I also developed the metaphysical foundation that I continue to stand firmly upon. There was a friend who pointed out that we were rocks and others depended on us. And we depended on other rocks. And the day I went to the Center for Spiritual Living in Santa Rosa, California, I knew I had come home. Five years later I was a licensed practitioner. My decisions have been sudden but done in absolute certainty. I suddenly knew I would move from Kansas City to NYC. I suddenly knew I would move to California. I suddenly knew it was time for move back to Kansas City. No debate. Just immediate, compete, definite knowing. Followed by giant steps. I trust my inner voice.
I still have work to do. My path is built on my lifetime of spiritual exploring. I am to continue to explore and open up new pathways for myself and for others to follow and perhaps choose.
Each year marks a strong forward movement. Each year brings in new awareness, new adventure, new knowing. I have given up planning very far ahead. I work to stay in the present moment – always exploring and considering and experimenting – looking for my next steps and the discoveries and insights I am to learn for my own journey and turn and share with others.
Live your day mindfully – fully, with deep awareness of what is being offered you …… and take in as much tranquility as you can hold.
Happy 89th Birthday to me!
DEEPER SONG AFFIRMATION
I immerse myself in the fullness and tranquility of life and step forward into my deepest path of service.
DEEPER SONG PROCESS
- Pause where you are and consider – where you are, what opportunities are unfolding, how the world is changing. What is your role?
- Do that.
Draw Your Vision
Drawing is a fabulous way to try an idea on for size. It doesn’t have to be a good drawing, it just has to be an image that suggests to you the form and shape and depth and width of your vision. Give it a try. Draw your vision into life.
Step Back Into Your Own Power
In the chaos and disruption of today’s world, it is easy to feel lost or even hopeless. But it is right now, in this moment, that we are each to step into our own strength. Our inner strength of spirituality, our inner strength of higher purpose. We must step outside the disruption of our humanness and rise above this chaos. We are to gather together above the fray. We are to join together with a higher vision for the whole planet, for the whole universe, for All-That-Is. We are to hold that vision, that higher vision, and see it and feel it and experience it and immerse ourselves in it until it becomes a reality. Think beyond yourself. Sink into the cosmos. Step into the cosmic awareness and be whole.
Know Your Work Style
I’m a loner. I prefer to work alone. I prefer to do it my way. It’s important to know your preferred working style.
As I watch the US congress rework and compromise and stall, I know for sure I’d rather be the CEO and simply make the decisions and stand by the results. No compromise for me – I want flexibility and innovation and exploration, based on my own knowledge and interpretation.
I have also known I would rather work with advanced explorers than beginners. There are always choices. Know your work preferences and build upon them.
Get Rid of What No Longer Serves You
Periodically we need to do a reality check – what are we actually using and what is no longer part of our path.
My daughter and her husband helped me get some possessions recently – things I would never use again. I kidded and told her there would soon just be me and all my crystals living here.
Letting go is interesting. It can be challenging and it can be freeing. It involves a choice. A recognition that something is no longer useful and a willingness to let go of it.
Look around at your life and your possessions and see what needs to move on – and out.
Know What Calls To You
I was reading the wrong book. I think it has things in it I need to know but it was deep and takes persistence and focus to read. I was having a hard time staying with it.
I had a second book, Dr. Jains’ book on biofields, and the minute I read the intro I knew I had to shift directions.
This is what I want to know now. This is what I need to learn next. My energy lifted, my focus shifted and I was off like a rocket ship.
Change your gaze and see what calls to you. Then take off on the adventure.
===DEEPEN YOUR SPIRITUAL PRACTICE===
I don’t have occasion to laugh-out-loud much. Can you remember the last time you really had a big belly laugh and you couldn’t even stop laughing? I’ve begun to look for a smile, even an inside smile. A moment that makes me pause and look and appreciate and absorb the gift of whatever it is that is making me smile. It’s not often laughter, but it is an uplifting of spirit. See what you can find today to make you smile.

===OUR EVOLVING FUTURE===
Are You Moving on?
I was listening to the news – particularly about people who don’t want to change. They don’t want to change their thinking. They don’t want to change their beliefs. They don’t want to explore. They don’t want to let go. They don’t want to question. They don’t want to experiment. They mostly do not want to be wrong. And of course, as we expand and learn and experiment, we do grow and change and replace ideas and actions.
Growth is good. Exploration is fabulous. Be like the breeze going through the trees and let exploration create movement in your life.

===OUR UNFOLDING ROLE===
Transmute the Past into New Sources of Energy
One of my major gifts is enthusiasm. It takes me exploring. It inspires me to share what I discover. Curiosity and enthusiasm are major drivers for me. As I move forward on my own journey I am to translate my lessons and achievements of the past into new sources of energy and inspiration for the future. I build on what I know. I stand on the heights I have achieved so far and look further afield. My path is changing. I am climbing higher. I am seeing further. I am being called to higher service. I will build on what I have learned, what I have achieved, how I have developed, and what I am called to do. Come. Let’s go adventuring!
Follow the Path that Goes Deeper
This is the time of the year when we begin to reflect on what we have done and how we are doing. How did the choices we made work out? What didn’t work out so well? Not only do we reflect, but we have an opportunity to make new conscious choices. Is there an overarching theme we should look at as we make our choices for the coming year?
In a recent journey, I got the message ”follow the path that goes deeper.” Deeper into a connection and awareness of our integration with Cosmic Consciousness. Experience a deeper spiritual presence in my daily life, one of continuous gratitude and appreciation and awareness. Make conscious choices that deepen in my inner connection with All -That-Is. A deepening awareness that enhances my interactions on the physical plane. How do I take my path deeper? At the same time, I want to go higher. Rise above the chaos of the planet. Move off into the ethereal awareness that is available to all of us. Dig deeper to rise higher, perhaps that’s how it works out. As I deepen my relationship with my inner voice, my inner self, I learn to interpret it in more ways, from more angles. And as I deepen my relationship with my physical plane, I enrich and expand my choice of focus and action. We are to dig deep and climb high. I can do that.
===SING A DEEPER SONG ===
Directions from Within
I settle into my Still Point and listen.
I settle into my Still Point and listen to the soul of me, my essence, my being-ness.
I settle into my Still Point and listen to the soul of me, my essence, my being-ness. I move forward from that centered place. I dig deeper and I climb higher. All is well in my world.
