When you deliberately ask for a “little or a lot” of help from Grace, you’re creating space in your life for the Miraculous to appear. Based upon my extraordinary experiences, when choosing to invite acts of the Divine to orchestrate possibilities beyond your level of thinking, you will be required to suspend all feelings of fear, doubt and disbelief.
There isn’t a specific way to ask for Divine guidance. It’s an intimate conversation between you and God that begins within the truth of your heart and manifests itself into tangible evidence—and all in Divine timing. You will also be required to give up the desire to control external circumstances and be willing to discipline yourself to witness Grace in motion.
Regardless if your personal preference for calling upon Spiritual assistance is elicited from: God, archangels, guardian angels, spirit guides, or loved ones from the other side, trust the source of healing energy that’s bestowed upon you is a gift from God. NO THING or NO ONE is excluded from Divine healing and guidance, ever, as all forms of creation are significantly held within the arms of which it was created.
Years ago, I had a blue Persian cat named Essa. (Stories about her are also in my book.) She was quite the lady. She was mostly blind and deaf, but loved being pampered; and she was in my life to teach me numerous lessons.
Anyway, this story took place over Christmas break. My brother spent the holiday at my house, but when he left to return home, apparently, Essa darted out the door without him noticing.
When I came home later that afternoon, Essa was no where to be found. I didn’t have much time to look for her as I was on my lunch break but figured she’d be back that evening because she’d be hungry.
Well…that didn’t happen. And after 3 days of looking for her day and night, scouring the streets for her whereabouts I surrendered to the fact that she wasn’t coming home.
As I often do, when I find myself stumbling through life seeking answers during times of uncertainly, I sit down and get silent. I know myself well enough to know that I seldom receive solutions to my dilemmas when I work my brain into a frenzy of rational thinking. I allow Wisdom to arise through me as I immerse myself in the feeling of gratitude and surrender to, “Thy will be done,” —-and I follow the instructions that I’m being given as well as utilizing common sense.
It was 9pm, and in my last attempt to find her…I decided to do this:
Create a “Lost” flyer to paste on the community mailboxes. And while I was busy designing the sign, I remembered I’d read somewhere that if you call upon “the angels” and more specifically, Archangel Raphael (God’s healing messenger for healing and animals) well, anything can happen.
Hey! At this point, I had nothing to lose, so asked for Divine help in bringing Essa home. I focused my attention to be open for anything but expect nothing.
So after creating my black and white flyer, and with duct tape in hand to make darn sure "my sign" was going to securely stick to the metal mailboxes, I opened the door, took one step, and here comes Essa, nonchalantly walking in like nothing ever happened.
My response: Speechless. Dumbfounded. Awe-mazement...as I spoke many words of gratitude for bringing Essa home safely.

End of story….
I'm going to address a question that I frequently get asked as this question appears in my inbox at least 3 times per day and during all hours of the night 😬😬😬
The question is--> "How do you write a book?"
So here it is! I'm giving you everything that I know about this subject... Which isn't much. So this post will be short and sweet! Writing a book is clearly not my forte but I figured out how to get it done... The hard way!!! (PS.. I'm not recommending this approach 110%😉)
But this is how I did it....
Step 1. One day I sat down, opened up my laptop and began typing...knowing that I was NOT going to stop until I was done. I refused to let myself "off the hook." I held myself accountable, everyday.
Step 2. When I was finished writing the entire manuscript, I prayed about it, and asked God what to do next. And one night, I got out of bed at 3am and googled various words; including the word "editor." And on page 5 of Google, I found someone who appeared as if he could help me...sent him an email.....and we were a match!!
Step 3. Found my cover designer on Craig's list... (I prayed about it first, tho😉)
Step 4. Found a local publisher who put all of the "moving parts" together for me.
Step 5. Done! I'm off and running
That's it!! Like I mentioned earlier, how I completed this project was definitely not the "norm" and possibly not for everyone. You will figure out which way works best for you 😊
In addition, if you're mission is to write your first book, my advice would be to seek out a "writer's coach" and follow a structured path. If they have a proven, successful track record, there is something to be said for that... Listening is good!
And finally .... Everyday, someone asks me how I got Dr. Wayne Dyer's endorsement....
And my answer is quite simple. I prayed about it. The wisdom came to me on how to find his address, what to say, and what color of envelope to send it in... And when I dropped my book off at the post office it, I detached from the entire process. And two weeks later, I received an email from Dr. Dyer along with his endorsement, and he told me that when he came to Denver he wanted to meet me in person. That's it!!!! This "entire thing" was Divinely guided. And it wasn't because I knew someone who knew someone, or I bought my way "there".
I hope this post was inspiring and maybe even motivated you to "do whatcha gotta do" to make yourself happy.
I’ve always been fascinated with the classical fairy tale of Cinderella. Maybe it’s because as a 6th grader, I was chosen to play the lead role of being Cinderella in the school play; or perhaps it’s because I love the idea of enchanted castles and being swept away by prince charming. Regardless of whether or not these moments in time do come true—love, hope and happiness is the stuff dreams are made of.
Over the weekend, I decided to sit through the latest rendition of this magical tale. As I was being drawn into the life of a princess and the thought of never never land, I heard “this” inspiring message that moves beyond living happily ever after.
You see, when Cinderella was a young girl, her mother passed away. But prior to her death, she gave her daughter instructions on how to live her life. She said, “Have courage and be kind.”
WOW! Imagine that! Have courage and be kind—Powerful words for building a magical kingdom based upon grace.
Courage is a necessary virtue when staring directly into the eyes of fear or embarking on an unpredictable venture. The act of “being” courageous furthers your quest of internal exploration in gaining a deeper understanding of Self; and challenges you to heal unresolved hurts and move beyond limited perceptions with curiosity and an open-heart. Courage is the binding agent that fortifies your vision with optimism, while remaining diligent when doing the task at hand.
As the famous quote states, “Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.” — Lord Chesterfield
It takes courage to apply unwavering strength in rising above today’s obstacles and making a life change. It takes courage to be kind to people who may not have earned such a loving gesture. And it takes courage to stand up and speak your truth, while setting an example for those who seem to need it the most.
So, as your life candidly unfolds while traveling down your path in the pursuit of happiness—remember to demonstrate courage and to be kind. Deciding to BE BOLD when confronting your greatest challenge is a courageous action--hardly established by those with the faint of heart.
With the inner knowing that you are a spiritual being having a human (and charming) experience, it’s possible to walk in faith; roar with courage; and have the awareness that each encounter is a stepping stone for uncovering the gift of being your Highest Self. The simplest form of generosity may be the force of nature needed to transform another’s pit of darkness into a beacon of light; and in return, it may be the guiding factor in fulfilling your personal destiny. The choice is yours. Exemplify magnificence in every situation; and trust that anything is feasible when you BELIEVE in just a little bit of magic. 🙂
If you happen to find yourself getting caught up in the fear of the unknown, remind yourself to slow down, take a deep breath and feel the rhythm of your heart.
Your heart knows the truth. The truth that you have everything you need. YOU are whole, wise and wealthy beyond measure.
Stop. Center yourself and allow the beat of your "drum" to guide you in a clear direction when taking the next step. You don't need to know the "big picture" of what your life is suppose to BE, but you will know how to take the next step in divine time.
Quiet your mind. Breathe deeply and BE grateful for what you have today.
"Self confidence, self-esteem, strength, and courage is NOT given to anyone. It is earned through self-reflection, growing-up, confronting your own inner demons..and taking ownership of healing YOUR life. True success is attained through realising your own Divinity; rising above the false sense of Self, and demonstrating compassion to those who need it the most. Life isn't easy…but you can choose on how you are going to "show up" for yourself, as well as, for others."
