St. Helen's Halos
Mt. St. Helens, Washington
2005 is proving to be quite a year. Just the first few months gave us terrible natural disaster, war, the death of a Pope and the birth of new democracies.
The Chinese have a curse that goes, "May you live in interesting times". These times certainly qualify. Yet, I believe that more and more souls are being born on this planet to experience this interesting age of change.
The Ancient Chinese didn’t like change, hence the curse, as for centuries it was always more disruptive than favorable for them. New rulers meant new wars and new taxes. But all growth is change, and mankind is on the fast track to growth.
We too, are undergoing yet more change. In July my novel will be available for sale. Diane and I are moving to the LA area where we will be as long as Spirit wants us there.
So I welcome you reader, to join us as our journey continues. Watch it all unfold, as we follow what we believe in. Will our faith be rewarded?.
Love and Light
Changes are in the air again. Our daughter, Ashlee and grandson, Austyn are moving back to North Carolina to be with Austyn’s Daddy, Josh. We will miss them and wish them much love and success on their journey.
Jeffrey and I will be moving forward as well. We will be heading to Southern California this summer; looks like Los Angeles. The nice thing about living in our 5th wheel, we are completely mobile. As we are guided with appropriate timing, we go :-).
We have noticed over the course of the years on this adventure that emotional pain may occur with a shift. Before we left Washington State, many of our animals transitioned and our kids moved out.
When we left North Carolina Ashlee came with us and went back shortly after we took up residence in California. After having Austyn, she came back to California and is ready now, after 1 year, to return to North Carolina and continue life where she left off.
We were very well aware that a shift was occurring before hand, we just didn’t know what it looked like. At this point, we still do not know exactly what it looks like, so it is called a leap of faith, again.
There is definitely a sense of freedom and exhilaration in a lifestyle like this. It keeps us on our toes and we learn so much on the road of exploration. It is like a pot at the end of the rainbow. The gifts are tremendous and the emotions felt with every excursion are phenomenal.
By the time our next newsletter comes out we will be settled in and will inform you as to our where abouts. One fact that I can truly say with certainty...internal wisdom is in a heartfelt moment - what will you do with it when it speaks?
With Love, Diane
As your summer approaches with all of its glory and attributes, we see many are entertaining change in their daily lives. It is a time of movement and play. Balance is required for change to occur effortlessly.
Many struggle through forcing action rather than allowing with steps of action. You see, true heartfelt desire is the first step in creating. We wish to offer simplicity in your efforts to manifest.
* Feel your heartfelt desire with all your senses.
* Give thought to the outcome and ask us for assistance
* Put energy toward this desire with steps of action
* Flow with what is presented and detach from the how to’s
We hear you say, "we have done all of these things before". Yes, many of you have, although, the depth of feeling was inconsistent to your desire. As you align your internal feelings with your analytical beliefs your manifestations become reality.
This journey you walk mirrors your intent and commitment for that which you are asking. Your creation is precise and is based upon your internal balance.
You put yourselves on analytical time frames and then become consumed with frustration when their not met. Some thought patterns are so grandiose that your belief system will not support the balance of energy it requires for the manifestation to occur.
As you ask us for assistance pay attention to the weaving of synchronicities and adopt perseverance and patience, with a willingness to move forward or stop and let go.
Trusting in directional change is a walk of faith. When change is upon you, circumstances become increasingly uncomfortable to promote movement. We see the majority of you holding on to old behaviors. Discomfort has become a way of life instead of the exception, and is followed by complacency.
Are you ready to commit to a way of life that creates abundance and joy? Are you willing to recognize old patterns and release them to a simpler and more profound way of existence? Are you willing to trust in your innate ability to follow the path of least resistance?
What You Seek, Seeks You
We wish you balance and simplicity in your walk of faith
When you’re down,
help comes in lots of forms
· I had been shopping for plants all day and was on my way home. As I reached an intersection a hedge sprang up obscuring my vision, and I did not see the other car.
· The telephone pole was approaching. I was attempting to swerve out of its way when it struck the front end.
· As I approached the intersection a sign suddenly appeared in a place where no stop sign had ever appeared before. I was unable to stop in time to avoid the accident. To avoid hitting the bumper of the car in front, I struck the pedestrian.
· My car was legally parked as it backed into the other vehicle.
Before They Call...
While researching some of the gurgle I get for veracity (gurgle is spam in the form of a chain letter with a cute, or touching story) I found this story on a website called www.truthorfiction.com. This true story shows how God’s mechanisms for miracles operate outside of our concept of time.
One night, in Central Africa, I had worked hard to help a mother in the labor ward; but in spite of all that we could do, she died leaving us with a tiny, premature baby and a crying, two-year-old daughter.
We would have difficulty keeping the baby alive. We had no incubator. We had no electricity to run an incubator, and no special feeding facilities. Although we lived on the equator, nights were often chilly with treacherous drafts.
A student-midwife went for the box we had for such babies and for the cotton wool that the baby would be wrapped in. Another went to stoke up the fire and fill a hot water bottle. She came back shortly, in distress, to tell me that in filling the bottle, it had burst. Rubber perishes easily in tropical climates. "...and it is our last hot water bottle!" she exclaimed. As in the West, it is no good crying over spilled milk; so, in Central Africa it might be considered no good crying over a burst water bottle. They do not grow on trees, and there are no drugstores down forest pathways. All right," I said, "Put the baby as near the fire as you safely can; sleep between the baby and the door to keep it free from drafts. Your job is to keep the baby warm."
The following noon, as I did most days, I went to have prayers with many of the orphanage children who chose to gather with me. I gave the youngsters various suggestions of things to pray about and told them about the tiny baby. I explained our problem about keeping the baby warm enough, mentioning the hot water bottle. The baby could so easily die if it got chilled. I also told them about the two-year-old sister, crying because her mother had died. During the prayer time, one ten-year-old girl, Ruth, prayed with the usual blunt consciousness of our African children. "Please, God," she prayed, "send us a water bottle. It’ll be no good tomorrow, God, the baby’ll be dead; so, please send it this afternoon." While I gasped inwardly at the audacity of the prayer, she added by way of corollary, " ...And while You are about it, would You please send a dolly for the little girl so she’ll know You really love her?" As often with children’s prayers, I was put on the spot. Could I honestly say, "Amen?" I just did not believe that God could do this. Oh, yes, I know that He can do everything: The Bible says so, but there are limits, aren’t there? The only way God could answer this particular prayer would be by sending a parcel from the homeland. I had been in Africa for almost four years at that time, and I had never, ever received a parcel from home. Anyway, if anyone did send a parcel, who would put in a hot water bottle? I lived on the equator!
Halfway through the afternoon, while I was teaching in the nurses’ training school, a message was sent that there was a car at my front door. By the time that I reached home, the car had gone, but there, on the veranda, was a large twenty-two pound parcel! I felt tears pricking my eyes. I could not open the parcel alone; so, I sent for the orphanage children. Together we pulled off the string, carefully undoing each knot. We folded the paper, taking care not to tear it unduly. Excitement was mounting. Some thirty or forty pairs of eyes were focused on the large cardboard box. From the top, I lifted out brightly colored, knitted jerseys. Eyes sparkled as I gave them out. Then, there were the knitted bandages for the leprosy patients, and the children began to look a little bored. Next, came a box of mixed raisins and sultanas - that would make a nice batch of buns for the weekend. As I put my hand in again, I felt the... could it really be? I grasped it, and pulled it out. Yes, "A brand-new rubber, hot water bottle!" I cried. I had not asked God to send it; I had not truly believed that He could. Ruth was in the front row of the children. She rushed forward, crying out, "If God has sent the bottle, He must have sent the dolly, too!" Rummaging down to the bottom of the box, she pulled out the small, beautifully dressed dolly. Her eyes shone: She had never doubted! Looking up at me, she asked, "Can I go over with you, Mummy, and give this dolly to that little girl, so she’ll know that Jesus really loves her?"
That parcel had been on the way for five whole months, packed up by my former Sunday School class, whose leader had heard and obeyed God’s prompting to send a hot water bottle, even to the equator. One of the girls had put in a dolly for an African child — five months earlier in answer to the believing prayer of a ten-year-old to bring it "That afternoon!"
"And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear." Isaiah 65:24.

In my attempt, as a Spiritual Scientist, to live a more enlightened life I try to understand and use the seven Universal Laws. One of those laws is the law of "Cause and Effect". It is the basis for Karmic Law in all of the major religions (e.g. he who lives by the sword shall die by the sword).
In the ‘Sermon on the Mount’, Jesus gave us the most famous model for how we are to pray, or communicate with God. In this model a key phrase "forgive us our debts, as we also forgive our debtors" (Matthew 6:12), is a key to unlocking the chains of karmic debt.
Read further and the Gospel says, "For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins" (Matthew 6:14 & 15).
Forgiveness is divine, meaning it is of the higher level (divine) of spiritual energy. It is by employing actions of a higher vibration (Law of Vibration) that we rise above the ruts of karma, to create a new path. The word FOR-GIVE implies to give forward, or return things to the way they were before some negative incident occurred. So karmic forgiveness truly means to set things back before some negative event or action, thus there is no karmic debt.
Visualize that before you is a long row of standing dominoes, but you are responsible for only one. There are other folks around you who each have his or her own domino as well. Now see this scene from above and you will notice that the row is actually a large circle a mile across. Every few minutes the dominoes fall including yours in the classic chain reaction. Stand yours back up carefully and still the wave returns and knocks it down again. But suddenly you have a new plan, you step forward and lift you domino up out of harms way and the chain reaction stops. You have stopped the karmic cycle and not only do the people beyond you feel the benefit, but you notice the next wave does not come. It will take a deliberate act from one of the others to start it again, and again by focusing not on just your own domino, but on those around you, you are able to proactively choose not to be a part of the chain.
When everyone learns your trick or even a majority, no longer will the chain reaction go around and around.
So how do we apply this to the real world? One way is to allow existing systems to work. Our justice system is far from perfect, but it serves a higher function, that of relieving individuals of karmic linkage through retribution and vengeance. In the Christian Old Testament, Moses gave the people of Israel, the "Law". But, "an eye for an eye" was not intended as personal moral code. The people of Israel, released from generations of slavery, had no idea of how to conduct self rule. It was not uncommon in their day for a murder of one person in one tribe, to result in the genocidal slaughter of the offending tribe.
Enlightened sources have long preached leaving justice to God. By giving over our needs for justice, to the karmic law, we realize that no entity below God can escape Universal Law. So justice is always done, in one way or another.
I have heard victims of painfully violent acts, who say they have "forgiven the perpetrator in their heart" but still look forward to seeing justice done. That is the first step, but it may not be enough to remove the energy of the pain and hate from repeating in some manner.
It is only when we fully sacrifice (from the Latin Sacra Facere: literally to render or give unto God) our hate and need for vengeance, that we can truly forgive and then God through the action of His/Her Universal Law can forgive us.
We are all children of God, and all part of God and God a part of us, therefore we are all one, and to Forgive another is to Forgive ourselves. But if we can not forgive men who sin against us we can not forgive ourselves (sounds a little like Matthew 6:14 & 15).
The workings of forgiveness are simple, even if the act of forgiveness is not always easy.

I took their advice to the letter.
I put the cabin with a Real Estate agent. It closes this week for $5000 above asking to locals who want to live there and not chop down the trees.
My car sold on Monday of last week, after languishing for two months on the market. I had an initial offer two months ago and it ended up selling for that amount now (take what the Universe is telling you to take).
I quit my job that same day, and my broker (who I wanted to change) called and left a message that he was moving most of my funds into cash positions - easier to change and move. Then Tueday rolled around.
The realtor came in to her office to show the house to them. Then a neighbor stopped by (whom I never met before) and asked about the house and if it was for sale. I gave her the realtor’s card. I got a call that afternoon from another realtor wanting to show it in an hour. I put her off because the house wasn’t supposed to be on the market til Friday. Then I conceded to let her show it on Wednesday.
By Saturday I had an offer for the full asking, minus some of the other things I was selling. I countered and by Sunday my counter was accepted at full asking price. I am scheduled to move out June 14. Sunday morning I also got a call from the cabin realtor, asking me to close this week.
Meanwhile, before all this rolled in, I thought about the trip to the ocean your guides suggested. Someone online met up with me, a stranger, and he was in the exact same situation as me but in 1992. It was an amazing conversation and I even asked him if he wasn’t some kind of guide or something (and he did say no, but.... I wonder if he may be a vessel.) He brought up Hawaii. I thought "ocean" and plus my aunt and cuz live there and want a visit. SO, I made reservations to Hawaii starting this Sunday, ignorant of all that was about to unfold.
So I’m letting go and going to Hawaii anyway and trusting the flow of energy. All that liquidation to cash has to mean something. And I think it means "GO! MOVE! IT’S TIME!"
Amazing stuff is happening here. Thanks for your help with all of this.
