Do you remember when you were very little and you had some crayons in your hands and a blank piece of paper… how exciting that moment was for you? The smell of the crayons, the creaminess of the colors, or maybe it was finger painting. So you began scribbling or painting using your fingers to make images on that piece of paper… how exciting that was for you. You did not know what the picture was going to be. But it didn’t matter. You were so involved in the sensuality of that experience. The colors, The smells, the images that emerged. You didn’t care about the final result more than the experience of creating. In fact, after you finished sometimes you would just toss it aside and start on a fresh piece of paper. And maybe your mom would put it proudly on the refrigerator with one of those magnets.
I’ve been an artist all my life. I remember moments when it was so exciting to create from nothing. As I became more seasoned, and began worrying about what other people thought, about results, the process wasn’t as pure and joyful. I lost sight of why I became an artist. But it didn’t take me long to get back to that original feeling because, well, I was actually bored with just results. It was always fun to look at it, to try to sell it, to display it in a gallery. But to me (and to most artists who are truly artists), I couldn’t wait to start my next project, the excitement of not knowing what will emerge… the inner desire just to express took over.
Don’t Go For Perfect, Just Go For Expressive
Whether it’s writing, drawing, painting, photography, creating a garden, a business… it really doesn’t matter what the creative project is actually…In fact, it can even just be creating a healthier body, a new perspective, a more interesting life for ourselves, inner peace, it is all the same. Don’t go for perfect, just go for expressive!
When we are struggling or we are striving to manifest something in our life, whether it’s more money, better health, a joyful relationship with others or with ourselves, it’s all under the same heading. It’s all about the process. If we were handed the end results by someone or something else other than ourselves and our inner creativity, I guarantee we would not be satisfied. Because, as much as we may feel otherwise, it is not the end result that is the prize. It’s the feeling we have getting there. It’s that feeling of molding that clay. And when we manifest in life the clay I am speaking of is our passion, our imagination. We’ve lost the ability to a great degree of using our imaginations to create what we want. And sadly that is the joy. That is the joy of creativity. It’s your imagination combined with feelings. That’s the formula for creating what we want. And just like an artist who is creating a piece of artwork, we’re not always sure of exactly what we’re going to get, but we know it’s going to be amazing. Why? Because it contains our essence, it contains our vision, it contains our imagination. That feeling of having a desire, knowing that we can have whatever we desire, and then using our imagination with feeling and pretending that we have it already. We’re playing with it with our feelings. That’s our brush, that’s our paint. That’s our clay. We’re sculpting energy.
So, remember, Creator God, you are here to create. Not to have everything handed to you. How boring that would be. In the new energy, creativity is much more fluid, much easier. It’s not about struggle, it’s not about a business plan, it’s not about thinking your way through it, no it’s really about being playful. It always was about being playful. But we had so many heavy overlays of guilt, of drama, of struggle. It took the fun out of creating didn’t it? You are an artist. Your life is your canvas.
When things become difficult, when you’re thinking too much, when you’re analyzing things too much, when you’re worrying about things, stop. Take a deep breath. Go have some ice cream. Take a nap. Then when you’re more refreshed And more relaxed, your inner child will come out and want to play. Allow the child out to play. Because that child is your creative connector to your dreams. Do not ever forget that. Nurture the inner child.
So, what are you going to paint? Do you have to know what it’s going to be when it’s finished? Go for the essence of what you want. Maybe you want to feel light and cheerful so you’re going to use brighter colors. Maybe you wanted to be dark and ominous and heavy. There’s really nothing wrong with that either. If that is what you prefer. Perhaps you want to express yourself more. Don’t take it so seriously. Or rather take the playfulness more seriously. And stop taking the serious stuff so seriously. Remember back when you were young and you used your imagination to pretend you were a fireman, a doctor, a princess? Or a pirate? You can do the same thing now with your true heart’s desires. Dream big. You do not have to know specifics, in fact specifics could hold you back. Just feel into the essence of what you want. Yes all your limiting beliefs will come up and try to distract you. It’s okay. Just ‘brush’ them aside, and continue with your dream. Feel into it. Feel what it would be like to have that dream come true. It may create some anxiety. What would your life be like if that dream were to come true? Perhaps it will challenge you. That’s Okay too. Sometimes the artist is challenged as they are painting. The colors are not blending properly. They’re frustrated with their tools. It’s all part of the process.
You are Creator God’s, here to create with your imagination. You can now create with much more ease and fluidity with the new energies. Take advantage of these beautiful energies that are here for you…waiting for you to activate them. They are YOUR energies. Don’t overthink your project. You can always paint over it.
Now go and have some fun.

Most of us haven’t escaped this little treasure called guilt, even if we’re from the most lenient of households and early environments. It’s sometimes easier to give in to the guilt and ‘follow through’ on something we don’t really want to do, rather than live with the guilty feelings. But either way, we end up feeling bad.
Guilt has its origins when we first came through the wall of fire into body. At that point we left our spiritual family behind and felt separated from source, from ourselves. We thought we did something wrong.
The churches have followed suit with the Fire and Brimstone tactics. Telling us we need to atone for our ‘sins.’ That we need ‘forgiveness.’ Guilt has permeated just about every facet of our world. We have been hit from all sides and it seems there is no escape.
By law of attraction, guilt seeks punishment, even if it is emotional punishment, feeling bad. But we are used to feeling bad. We think it’s normal. If we’re not feeling bad about something we often look for a reason to. But the good news is, guilt is on it’s way out. Through planetary and human ascension, it’s on it’s last legs.
If you’re reading this you are a light worker in one form or another, and your karma is over. Done. You owe no one anything. You have a clean slate. You are brand-new. But, it takes courage to believe that. It takes trust in yourself. Trusting your feelings, not your feelings of guilt or shame, but your feelings of joy. Listen to what you are telling yourself: are you being hard on yourself? If something feels good, it is. It’s good for you. If something feels bad, or if it doesn’t feel joyful, then don’t do it.
Not that you have to run out and quit your job tomorrow, or start divorce proceedings, but it is necessary to begin listening to the quiet inner voice. That’s your heart, your connection to your soul. Otherwise you will just keep repeating the old patterns laden with guilt and fear and nothing will change in your life. Start small, and you know what that means. Follow your inner guidance. As soon as we choose what feels good, odd things come up; resistance, fear, guilt. Excuses not to do what we want. The mind will battle the heart. It’s why there’s so much heart disease. Trust me it’s not fatty foods. The mind will pretend everything’s fine. You pretend you’re happy. Others have it worse off, blah blah blah. But what is your heart telling you? You’ll know by how you feel. Are you feeling tired, sick? Your body is telling you
You can ignore your feelings, until your body breaks down, and you can ignore your body, until they carry you off in a gurney. That is okay too, then you get to start all over again. Death gives us a fresh perspective. But, you are too enlightened to let it go that far. You are questioning these old, old patterns. You are releasing them little by little. You are listening to your heart more and more.
That’s not you. It was a beautiful experience for your soul growth. Nothing more. Duality tells you that this is right or that is wrong. But, in truth, there is no right or wrong. They are human terms that humans created to try to separate different experiences.
There is no morality, there is no judgment. Some experiences feel better than others, yes, but in truth there is no good or bad. So, then guilt is just an illusion. It is a paper dragon. It doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The church used it to control the masses. And we used it to control ourselves, to diminish our joy. And, it worked well. We became colorless, joyless beings, the internal judge and jury keeping watch over our every thought and action.
But, it’s a brand new day. We get to choose all our emotions. We are not victims of culture, our parents, the church, the government, or ourselves. We get to decide if we prefer joy over guilt. In fact, it’s better to feel anger than guilt; at least with anger you feel motivated to change and express. So my fellow way showers, it’s time to shine, to show others that there is life beyond guilt.
Enjoy my new song, Left My Old Self Behind
We’ve traveled long and far… we’ve gone through the worst.
Many of us are shedding our old skin, moving beyond struggle and pain as a main way of life, and moving into more joy and expansion. Of course we still have our moments, our days, and we’re still releasing old beliefs. But now the difference is we prefer to be in the joy side of the balance. We feel more clear that we create our own reality, and that we get to choose how we want to experience life. We’re trusting ourselves more and more. We know more than ever what fits and what doesn’t. We know without a doubt who we want to be with, what brings us joy, and that we deserve health and abundance.
“Promised Land” is the ‘Heaven on Earth” that we all are moving toward. It’s the acceptance of our divine and human selves. It’s the inner journey. It’s not so much a place as it is a perspective. It’s our personal ascension – our enlightenment…finally walking the planet as the masters that we are!

Enjoy my song, “Sea Spirits” while reading
As we awaken, we realize that we are not just a human trying to get through life. We are not the person who is just trying to make more money, promote our business, socialize, or just get our bills paid. We are so much grander than that. Yes, we’re having a human experience but it is not the totality of who we are.
As we ascend and become more aware of our multidimensional selves, the field of ’human’ psychology will need to reflect that. Perhaps it should be called Diman (Divine human) psychology.
We are slowly beginning to honor that part of us that is here in human form and also invite the divine in. We don’t need to be “perfect” to do that. Just accept ourselves. But if we try to do that from the mind, we won’t get far. We will need to open up our hearts.
We incarnated on earth to experience separation from self, so the heart (the bridge to the higher self) has been closed for a long, long time. It would not let the love in from spirit, so it really couldn’t love others very well. Other things got confused with love. Approval and accomplishments were confused with love. Being needed, and needing someone else in order to feel whole and complete were confused with love. Love became conditional.
Opening the heart through feelings will accelerate our ascension. In order to do that we need to embrace all our feelings. It’s not a mental process. We are moving out of the mental, patriarchal patterns, and into the intuitive ways of being…into the heart energy!
The mind has an important role to play in our body of consciousness, but it was never designed to create for us. It’s very limited in that department. It is an elaborate computer system that wants to serve us. To help us to navigate the physical reality, to store information, and to retrieve information of a logical nature. It enjoys keeping ‘busy.’ But as far as guiding our life decisions, it actually can’t and further, doesn’t want that responsibility. It tries to ‘protect’ us by becoming fearful and listing the reasons we can’t do something. It never takes into consideration our eternal nature.
Opening up our Hearts
Many struggle with feelings. Men especially have had a difficult time with accessing them, through conditioning, delegating them instead to their sexual centers. However, there has been an undeniable shift and many men are opening up to their intuitive nature quite beautifully. They are beginning to embrace their feminine side, and understand that they can’t go very far with just their minds. The patriarchy was all about pushing, trying, and using willpower to accomplish and create. The new way of creating is a melding of the masculine and feminine aspects within, a balance of allowing and relaxing, and inspired action and receiving.
Many believe that feelings will lead to a dark scary closet full of bad dreams, things gone wrong, broken hearts, guilt, fear, or worse! That they will be overwhelmed and never recover. That is an illusion. None of that is real, although it may feel real. It’s like the child who is afraid to look under his bed. terrified of finding the boogeyman. His parents encourage him to look, at which point he is able to do so to see there really was nothing to worry about, and then to get to sleep peacefully.
Many of our emotions are generated from our beliefs. They are a visceral reaction to those beliefs. For example, If we believe we are not worthy of love, we will draw situations in which that belief is manifested, and we may react with anger or sadness. You can say then that the feelings are not valid because of course we are worthy, but shoving those emotions underground isn’t the answer. Feeling them without judgement and then transmuting them is. Sometimes we need to get to the core issue before the feelings can be released, in this case, not feeling worthy.
Antidepressants and psychotropic drugs prescribed by psychiatrists, psychologists (in some states), and medical practitioners are not an answer to the deep issues that people are facing. Isn’t it curious that the psychiatric field, in which we depend upon to assist in facing and dealing with emotional issues, would so easily succumb to the belief that drugs are the solution? Even in the face of mounting clinical evidence that they make the condition worse? And, that is because traditional psychotherapy does not go deep enough. Generally speaking practitioners are in a belief system that supports the mind as the core of our consciousness. It does not acknowledge the soul, the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine, and the aspects from this and past lives. Healing isn’t even necessarily about going back and reliving childhood trauma. But in order to have any long-term healing, it is vital to embrace all aspects of ourselves, not just the human mind and psyche.
If we believe we are just these bodies and these personalities, we are doomed to get lost in a vicious cycle of cause and effect. If we believe we are on only one timeline, living only one life, if we don’t believe in our multidimensional nature, we will be relegated to a ‘Groundhog Day’ existence. Repeating the same problems and issues and dynamics over and over again.
To break through the limitations of the mind, psychology needs to acknowledge our multidimensional nature, that we are refined beings of light having a very human experience. The new psychology will help people to accept all their feelings without judgement, and to understand them on a soul level. Further that they are here playing a role, in this dimension, for the experience on a soul level.
Why do you think there are so many antidepressants on the market? Why are there other antidepressants being advertised to supplement the ones people are taking? Why do you suppose there are so many adverse side effects? It doesn’t take a mastermind to figure out that they are not an effective solution to the issues and challenges of those seeking help. I know someone who is on a long-term antidepressant. He claims it is helping him, but meanwhile he has to wear a hat because he has gradually pulled all his hair out. He can’t seem to stop himself, as painful as it is. He confided in me once that he believed being angry is not spiritual. Sometimes depression is repressed anger. The emotions WILL BE EXPRESSED, one way or another.
Taking these drugs leaves little hope of accessing the important emotions that need to be expressed and healed. There is the argument that in some cases drugs are needed to address the chemical imbalance in the brain, which is believed to cause emotional imbalance. It’s the other way around, the chemical imbalance is caused by the emotional one. Along with this band-aid type solution there has been, over the past two decades, a huge movement to think positive, which, like the original religion, has been misunderstood and misinterpreted. The ultimate goal is to feel good, yes, at which point the law of attraction will bring more good feeling experiences to us, but to paste ‘positive thoughts’ over a feeling of anger or depression is not the way there. (just as sedating feelings with drugs). It’s like putting a lid on a pot of boiling water, and expecting it to stop boiling while the flame is still on. If unattended it will boil over and possibly do some serious damage.
Sharing our Wisdom
Sigmund Freud did some groundbreaking work in human psychology. But he left the planet feeling that he did not take it far enough. He understood the soul level of the human being but at that time he felt that such a concept would be met with great resistance by his peers and by the psychiatric community. But this is a new time. We are expanding into our multidimensional nature. This is not reversible. We wanted this expansion, this awareness. So psychology and psychotherapy now need to catch up. Now more than ever, we need new energy psychiatrists and psychologists and counselors, those who are awakening. Just as Freud was groundbreaking in his concepts, so are we now. We are the pioneers of new consciousness and new psychology. We are here to share our wisdom and experience; to take our life lessons and see them from a higher perspective. Not to settle for old worn-out methods and modalities of psychology or psychotherapy. We now can see the patient as whole and complete, not as a broken being. That is a major shift in itself.
We don’t need to be psychologists ourselves, but we will be inspiring those in the field by our energies, and our sharing of our own life-experiences.
Feelings are the doorway to a beautiful, rich inner life!
