This Is A Powerful Time for Transformation
Living Our Deeper Song
The Creative in me honors the Creative in you!
Major changes need to be made within ourselves and in our inner and our worlds in order to move forward to create the new world that we are being called upon to help manifest. It’s a bit scary, this unknown path, but there is stalwart determination building up as thoughtful, aware people work to change their thinking and their beliefs and their expectations and turn that into positive action.
Change is constant and we must constantly adapt. We cannot wait for some future time or situation in order to self-actualize. Life is a constantly changing cycle of new opportunity and new challenges. And more importantly, new choices.
The list is fairly large. Artificial Intelligence is both an opportunity and a moral challenge. Science opens new doors every day. What new opportunities and insights have our voyages in space given us? The environment is demanding our conscious help in its healing. Change is constant and we must learn to adapt and creatively change with it.
Are you up to the task? How are you changing your thinking and your choices to help create a better world?
I think we need to return to that core concept that we get what we believe we deserve and what we believe is possible.
Each day something that was seemingly impossible becomes possible and new fields of opportunity open up. That means we must keep changing our gaze and continuously look for new opportunities and pathways. Some paths will remain open but they will change. I’m thinking of the medical field which continues to evolve but at the core is still about healing.
It’s challenging enough to prepare a new field of interest and action, but adventurous people may change fields in mid-life.
In high school in the 40’s, I learned to type on a big manual typewriter. It was in the 80’s in New York City that I first heard of a computer. Today things are moving so fast that I am falling behind.
How do you keep up let alone catch up?
You pay attention to what is unfolding and continuously explore new ways to do things to see if it fits your vision and your gifts. You have to stay flexible and explore and evaluate and choose or reject depending on what resonates and the path you choose to follow. We have to stay mobile, flexible and inquisitive.
Are you open to change? Are you exploring more deeply those new possibilities that catch your attention? It’s easy to do some research online to find out what the jobs are and what new skill requirements are needed. This is no longer a day and age in which you can settle into a career and follow that path for your entire life. Even professions like medicine and law have to keep updating themselves. Life seems to be an ongoing learning cycle and we have to do our part to keep up with the changes and opening opportunities that continue to present themselves.
My core skills are writing and an inquisitive mind. I have applied my writing to commercials for radio and TV, I have written plays and books and poetry and on-line courses. I have used my organizational skills to organize a Picture Lady program for the Kansas City School District, as a stage manager for plays, and to organize my material as an online teacher. One or two skills can take you in a lot of directions. You just have to go exploring and get creative about how you apply those gifts.
Go exploring. Be inquisitive. Try things out. What new adventure awaits you? This is a time of transformation. Enjoy the change!
DEEPER SONG AFFIRMATION
I am open to change. I go exploring to find new places in which to offer my gifts and talents in skills.
DEEPER SONG PROCESS
- Make a list of your gifts and your skills and rate them according to what gives you the most satisfaction.
- Take the top two and brainstorm, and define how many ways you can use those gifts or skills.
- Do some research to identify what new opportunities are developing in the fields that you are interested in exploring.
- Pick one and go deeper into its possibilities.
Deepen Your Inner Awareness
How To Create A Powerful Affirmation
We are in a world of flowing substance, a shape-shifting energy and what makes the shapes shift is our thought. Because everything is one energy, the thoughts we think work within the sphere of oneness.
An affirmation is a mold we create in our imagination of what we desire. We get to choose wisely and with awareness. An affirmation can be hampered and its effect limited by what we believe we deserve and what we believe possible. So when creating your affirmation make sure to check for any limiting beliefs.
I’m not going to make an affirmation that I’m going to skip down the halls at 90, but I can make an affirmation that I walk upright with only a cane. That’s possible. Once I master the cane, I will think about skipping…
An affirmation is a desire stated in present-tense terms as if it is already manifest in our lives.
- 1.Make them personal: I am, I know, I let.
- 2.Keep the words positive.
- 3.Write them in the present tense, in the here-and-now. Right now, Today, in this moment. Never use the past or future tense.
- 4.Make the vocabulary personal to YOU. Use words that touch you at the feeling level.
- 5.Be specific but do not state what or how it is to manifest. Leave that up to an exciting Universal Surprise!
Create a statement in the present tense that suggests the positive outcome has already occurred. This is your affirmation.
I see clearly within and without.
I am easily and naturally balanced.
I experience love from many sources. I let that love nurture me.
I am clear about my role in the unfolding universe and my participation has lasting and positive impact.
Use affirmations and your imagination to create a mold of what you desire.
An affirmation is a statement made in the present tense as if it has already happened. Get to work co-creating your life the way you want it!
Take Responsibility for Healing Yourself
Focus On A Higher Perspective Of Who You Are
How do you view yourself? As a human struggling along or as a Light Being of Vibrant Energy and Infinite Possibilities participating meaningfully in the world?
We get what we focus on. We get what we expect. We have a choice. What are you focusing on?
Explore New Potential and Possibilities
Do You Continue To Explore?
I love to explore. I love to learn. I stay open to nudges from the universe to explore new ideas or expand my thinking and my focus.
I leave time to think. I take time to dive deeper into directions and concepts that interest me.
When and how do you continue exploring?
Do You Need To Change Your Diet?
I was in the hospital again – for four days and as I was being examined for admission, a doctor sat down and said I could cure my edema with a low sodium diet.
I was stunned and also grateful for a seemingly easy fix. Except I’m the only vegetarian here. I was on a cardio diet at the hospital and really liked the vegetable soup with a tomato soup base. But that’s all I came home with.
I have both the dietitian and the chef working with me to see what I like. I’m really controlling my sodium intake.
If I can restore my health with a low sodium diet, I’m in. Is your diet keeping you in great heath? What changes are you willing to make?
I do know about Mrs. Dash and found three flavors I like but this is going to be a major change. Check out your salt intake and see what changes you are willing to make.
How Do You Spread Cheer?
The Med-Aide harmonized with the resident and they both had a lovely time singing. That particular person is from the agency and her cheerful willing-to-help presence cheers us all up.
Are you aware of how your mere presence affects others?
===DEEPEN YOUR SPIRITUAL PRACTICE===
Self-Healing Spiritual Practice and Deepening Awareness of Our Cosmic Oneness
A Meditation To Create Positive Change
We have so much choice in our lives. We have the ability to change our lives simply by changing our thinking – our belief in what is possible – our choice in what we attract into our lives. If things are not going well, we have only to look within and change our thinking and our expectations. Change is really that simple.
Begin with an intention stated in the present tense as if it has already happened. I am.” “I have.”
In a place of solitude:
- 1. Describe to yourself the unformed energy and its qualities to yourself.
- 2. Sit quietly until you feel you have lost yourself in this energy and that you as a person no longer exist, that you are immersed in the universal energy field of love and wholeness.
- 3. Absorb your intention into this formless energy. With passion feel your intention taking shape with you at its center. Notice what it looks like. Experience how you feel with that intention completed. Notice what changes occur. Allow it to seep into every cell.
- 4. Accept with gratitude the completion of your intention into your soul. Know with certainty that it is manifest.
- 5. Cherishing the feeling in your center, move back into gradual awareness of your physical presence.
Look for the subtle signs offered by the universe and respond according to your heart. Create a meditation to create positive change in all areas of your life.
=== DEEPER SONG PHILOSOPHIES ===
Change How You See The World And See The World Change
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.
How do you need to change your view of the word? Of your life? Of your potential? Are you expecting enough of yourself? Of others? How can you raise your gaze? Focus on a new horizon?
Where you look and what you look for determines what you see.
===DEEPER SONG DISCOVERIES===
Resources to Explore
I am deep diving into sound healing. I have been invited to speak to the residents during a week-long festival and because so many people are not very capable physically, I’m going to teach them to hum to their bodies to help them balance and feel more empowered. My resource is David Gibson and his remarkable book Empower Your Life With Sound Healing, The Complete Guide to Sound Healing.
I will teach them to hum to their organs and injuries but I’m going to deep-dive into the topic.
===HOW TO BE A STRONG CONTRIBUTING MEMBER OF THE CIRCLE OF LIGHT BEARERS===
Expand Your Role in the Rapidly Evolving Universe
I Entwine My Light With Yours As We Move Forward To Show The Way
We have some work to do here. We have a world to save. A humanity to balance, an environment to rescue. As Light Leaders we have work to do.
We need to watch our expectations – we need to check on what we believe is possible and we have to hold the vision. Can you imagine a world of peaceful co-existence? Gentleness and kindness and thoughtfulness for everyone around you? Can you envision a world in which we as the inhabitants monitor our actions toward the planet so it does not just survive but thrives under our stewardship. I have to work at keeping an inclusive, positive, powerful vision.
What do I do? I monitor my own beliefs in what is possible. I monitor my own thoughts. I carefully choose my own actions and responses.
I look for and identify other Light Leaders and entwine my light with yours to encourage and support and co-create together.
Are you looking for and identifying other light leaders? Is there more to your interaction than just supporting each other? What actions do you take together?
I know there are many active Light Leaders reading this newsletter and I hope my words offer insights and support to guide you in your own journey of exploration. I entwine my light with yours as we move forward together to guide the way.
Who do you now turn and help to light the way?
===BROADEN YOUR HORIZON – EXPAND YOUR VIEW===
Raise Your Sights and Your Expectations
Use Your Imagination To Open New Doors
When we believe it will happen, it will. If we go with the belief that everything is one infinite, all-encompassing energy, then nothing is impossible. This one invisible, infinite energy contains all possibilities and it folds and unfolds into our life experience. Anything and everything can and does manifest when we focus on and intend it.
Where is your lack of imagination holding you back?
When I look at my own life I have to begin with my physical body – how it is changing, how it is trying to self-heal, and I monitor what I think can happen – how I can envision, expect, and imagine those re-strengthening changes happening.
Look to see if your imagination is keeping you tied down and raise your sights to see and expect the changes you want.

Don’t Neglect Your Gifts
When we pause to think about it, I bet we can all come up with a gift we have been neglecting. Something we used to do all the time that brought us great satisfaction and pleasure.
I’ve done my share of knitting over the years. I worked in oils for a while. I can no longer garden but do have some house plants to nurture me. I love doing my podcast but can no longer see to edit them. Life does open and close doors but we get to pry them open again.
I can still pick up my drawing pencils and draw the elements of a shamanic journey. I love writing my poems in the newsletter. I make up songs for my spiritual practice. I play my drums each day and my native flutes. And of course, there is the newsletter which satisfies my soul. There are many ways to continue to express your gifts throughout your life. Keep your gifts alive and active.
===SING A DEEPER SONG ===
My Neglected Gifts
My gifts lay spread before me in a multi-colored array of textures and colors. They have been developed and honed all my life.
My gifts lay spread before me in a multi-colored array of textures and colors. They have been developed and honed all my life. Some are more worn with use than others because they have been beloved companions over the years.
My gifts lay spread before me in a multi-colored array of textures and colors. They have been developed and honed all my life. Some are more worn with use than others because they have been beloved companions over the years. I pick up one of my least-used gifts and bring it forward for this stage of my life. I creatively use it to open new doors.
