He prayeth best, who loveth best
-Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Welcome friends! Life is Change, just as old cells dieand are replaced by new, death and decay result in new fertility and growth; this is the circle of life.
I have learned much about myself, through managing the RV Park, ultimately resigning to pursue higher things. It’s all good, as it helps in my quest to follow Socrates’ favorite advice "Know Thyself".
Freed of the RV Park’s responsibility I can again see the light in all people, instead of being required to look for darkness in them.
To live is to learn and not all lessons are fun at the time but all are valuable. My article "Going to Extremes" points out more Global lessons. Seriones’ message points, as always, to higher reasons for mundane lessons.
So I hope you find this newsletter useful or at least entertaining, as you face life and its lessons with love and conviction.
Our daughter, Ashlee, moved with our grandson, Austyn, to California and we have
been blessed with them being close. Ashlee is enjoying her job and new friends.
Austyn has grown so much since his arrival that it has been mind boggling. These
babies appear to be extremely advanced. They definitely know what they want, and
will express when their surroundings are out of balance. Austyn will sound off
when he senses chaotic emotion within an individual (expressed or suppressed).
I am very proud of my oldest daughter, Maria who lives in Indiana. She and her husband, Joseph bought a house this year. She is working full time and studies to receive her bachelors degree as well as raising both our granddaughters, Desi and Gabby. She is truly an inspiration.
Jeffrey and I took 3 days and traveled to the California Redwoods on the coast and thoroughly enjoyed being surrounded by these massive elders. It is a breath of fresh air to walk among them and see their wonder, and yet another to feel their existence. We also loved the vastness of the ocean beaches from California into Oregon. We stayed at the Best Western in Brookings, OR where the ocean was a 100 ft. from our sliding glass door. What a view, with plenty of relaxation which we were both very grateful for!!!
I am asking for your assistance with our newsletter so that we may continue sending them out. Due to the abundance of clients, our printing and mailing expenses have increased dramatically. If you have e-mail, and are receiving a hard copy of our newsletter, we would really appreciate sending the newsletter to your e-mail address. Please send me an e-mail: email@example.com. If you do not have internet access you will continue receiving the hard copies. Thank-you so much :-)
It is a time of closure and many are feeling the change internally and seeing the shift externally. Much clearing has been initiated and will come to a close mid September for majority. Those of you who resist growth and have become complacent will intensify struggle by avoiding that which is in your face to process and purge. The desires that have been heartfelt will manifest within your fall time frame of new beginnings. New beginnings bring rewards to those who exuberate patience, perseverance and faith in what lies beyond what the physical eyes see. Unattached heartfelt desires spark the momentum of sychronicities which appear in subtle form. As you become aware and attuned with your creation you step into a whirlwind of events perpendicular to your intent. We provide the ways and means with various outcomes and choices. Your part, is to simply allow, make decisions and take action, when action is called for. Desires materialize as you are aligned analytically and emotionally to the outcome of your choice. The storms (metaphorically) on your planet are personal to all who have been affected. Suppressed emotion and attachment will bring about engaged emotion and detachment. We wish for you to realize that your physical surroundings and experiences are directly related to your internal beliefs and emotional patterns. These patterns directly affect your perception and your response to any given situation, causing the ebb and flow of the Universe to mirror back your reality. Individuals, groups, communities, and nations, does not matter, it is all based on this truth. Can you not see why your world is in such disarray? The greatest gift you give to yourself, those around you and the world is self awareness and responsibility of your perception and emotion.
We wish you ease and grace in your

vowels) that became the words:
All 3 words mean Peace,
Let’s manifest it!
Is this a true story or a modern parable? Either way its worth reading this article we received by email.
A cold March wind danced around the dead of night in Dallas as the doctor walked into the small hospital room of Diana Blessing. Still groggy from surgery, her husband David held her hand as they braced themselves for the latest news.
That afternoon of March 10, 1991, complications had forced Diana, only 24-weeks pregnant, to undergo an emergency cesarean to deliver the couple’s new daughter, Danae Lu Blessing. At 12 inches long and weighing only one pound and nine ounces, they already knew she was perilously premature.
Still, the doctor’s soft words dropped like bombs.
"I don’t think she’s going to make it," he said, as kindly as he could. "There’s only a 10% chance she will live through the night, and even then, if by some slim chance she does make it, her future could be a very cruel one." Numb with disbelief, David and Diana listened as the doctor described the devastating problems Danae would likely face if she survived.
She would never walk, she would never talk, she would probably be blind, and she would certainly be prone to other catastrophic conditions from cerebral palsy to complete mental retardation, and on and on.
"No! No!" was all Diana could say. She and David, with their 5-year-old son Dustin, had long dreamed of the day they would have a daughter to become a family of four. Now, within a matter of hours, that dream was slipping away.
Through the dark hours of morning as Danae held onto life by the thinnest
thread, Diana slipped in and out of sleep, growing more and more determined that
their tiny daughter would live and live to be a healthy, happy young girl. But
David, fully awake and listening to additional dire details of their daughter’s
chances of ever leaving the hospital alive, much less healthy, knew he must
confront his wife with the inevitable.
David walked in and said that we needed to talk about making funeral arrangements.
Diana remembers, "I felt so bad for him because he was doing everything trying to include me in what was going on, but I just wouldn’t listen, I couldn’t listen. I said, "No, I don’t want to listen to what the doctors say; Danae is not going to die! One day she will be just fine, and she will be coming home with us!"
if willed to live by Diana’s determination, Danae clung to life hour after hour,
with the help of every medical machine and marvel her miniature body could
endure. But as those first days passed, a new agony set in for David and Diana.
Because Danae’s underdeveloped nervous system was essentially ‘raw,’ the
lightest kiss or caress only intensified her discomfort, so they couldn’t even
cradle their tiny baby girl against their chests to offer the strength of their
love. All they could do, as Danae struggled alone beneath the ultraviolet light
in the tangle of tubes and wires, was to pray that God would stay close to their
precious little girl.
There was never a moment when Danae suddenly grew stronger. But as the weeks went by, she did slowly gain an ounce of weight here and an ounce of strength there. At last, when Danae turned two months old, her parents were able to hold her in their arms for the very first time. And two months later, though doctors continued to gently, but grimly warn that her chances of surviving, much less living any kind of normal life, were next to zero.
Danae went home from the hospital, just as her mother had predicted. Today, five years later, Danae is a petite but feisty young girl with glittering gray eyes and an unquenchable zest for life. She shows no signs, whatsoever, of any mental or physical impairment. Simply, she is everything a little girl can be and more, but that happy ending is far from the end of her story.
One blistering afternoon in the summer of 1996 near her home in Irving, Texas, Danae was sitting in her mother’s lap in the bleachers of a local ballpark where her brother, Dustin’s, baseball team was practicing. As always, Danae was chattering nonstop with her mother and several other adults sitting nearby when she suddenly fell silent. Hugging her arms across her chest, Danae asked, "Do you smell that?"
Smelling the air and detecting the approach of a thunderstorm, Diana replied, "Yes, it smells like rain."
Danae closed her eyes and again asked, "Do you smell that?" Once again Diana said, "Rain." Still caught in the moment, Danae shook her head, patted her thin shoulders with her small hands and loudly announced, "No, it smells like Him... It smells like God when you lay your head on His chest."
Tears blurred Diana’s eyes as Danae then happily hopped down to play with the
other children. Before the rains came, her daughter’s words confirmed what Diana
and all the members of the extended Blessing family had known, at least in their
hearts, all along. During those long days and nights of her first two months of
her life, when her nerves were too sensitive for them to touch her, God was
holding Danae on His chest and it is His loving scent that she remembers so
No wonder EVERYONE LOVES the smell of rain!
In this Holiday season, we wish you the highest and best, of Love, Light, Peace, Joy, and abundance.

Diane Rose Phillips has been a blessing in my
life for 2 years now. Her guidance has facilitated my growth to new levels and
awareness in my daily life. With gentleness, love, and coming from a pure space,
she has helped me to open my eyes in areas of family, relationships, career and
personal growth. I have felt totally supported and uplifted every time I have
had a session with her. She has shared truth and has allowed me to grow at my
own pace. There has been total unconditional love coming from her, which I
believe has allowed me to feel safe enough to be who I am. I can liken Diane to
a Master Gardener, who gently tends to her plants - watering, pruning and giving
them space with a fertile environment to grow in. I am truly grateful for Diane
being here and in my life.
