Diane's Incentives and Class Schedule 



Welcome Friends

Oh  joy for spring and summer, in southern California.  The brown hills take on shades of green with swatches of pale yellows, and  occasionally purples, and the orange of the poppies as wild flowers bloom.  The yuccas sport yellow white bunches of blooms, from tall stocks scattered across the rolling hills. In the morning my commute in to the Mojave Desert is lovely, with the dry lake beds, distant shimmering mirages and more distant barren mountains.  

Despite the fearful chatter about war and jobs and gas and…  life goes on.  True, it is at times painful and dark, but the return of joy is always guaranteed for the open heart.  God loves us, wants us to be happy, and though our lessons are at times unbelievably harsh, his ultimate plan is for our eternal bliss.  So, may your path be lovely, your burdens light, and may you find the attitude of gratitude.  The Universe responds to our thoughts, so thoughts of gratitude bring more of what we are thankful for. Focus on the joys, and may you find some enjoyment from this issue.

Love & Light



Diane’s Welcome
Our daughter, Ashlee, her boyfriend, Jimmy and our grandson, Austyn came for a short visit.  We miss them so much and Austyn, who we call Boo-Boo is growing so fast and his vocabulary is expanding.  He just turned two in February and has more energy than all of us put together.

Jeffrey was blessed with his dream job during mercury retrograde.  They say not to sign any contracts or start anything new during this time, although, the way we see it....if everything falls into place and your heart is speaking follow through.  It worked out wonderfully for him and if you require working you may as well love what you do.

I visited with my family in Washington State and hadn’t seen them for about 3 1/2 years.  We celebrated Dad’s 80th birthday with close to 75 people attending.  Some of them I had not seen in 31 years – that was an experience.  It felt so good to connect with everyone again.  It was like turning back the hands of time and yet we were in the present.  I had a wonderful visit with my brother and sisters, for the exception of one who was unable to attend. We are all growing up…it was awesome to see.  I  really enjoyed the visit with both of my nephews and their 1 year old baby girls.  I am very proud of them !!!


In closing, I wish you all a fun-filled and blessed summer !!!! 

With Love, Diane

As summer approaches, it is a time of  introspection and moving  forward with play and creativity.  Creativity is all encompassing as this is the place you manifest your dreams.  Manifesting that which you put into action will be forthcoming rather than wishing and hoping by standing still.  Dear Ones it is a process in your journey of enlightenment that you will find the path of least resistance.  Each one of you has your own process and pace of adopting the flow of life.  When you live life with feeling, not based in lack, the door automatically opens and the surge of energy will carry you instead of hinder you.  The synchronicities will become more evident in your everyday life.  Validate your feelings in every aspect of your life and watch as the screen unfolds in front you.

We have mentioned in past newsletters that your immunity is very important.  Various strains of viruses are surfacing and many will be affected in the coming years.  The animal and mammal kingdoms are bringing unequivocal signs to be studied.   Immunity is based on your emotional state and what you consume.  Evaluate your life and how you are living it.  Are you satisfied? Do you have a level of peace and joy which validates you?  If not, what will you implement on a daily basis to balance your state of being? Your spiritual body is all knowing and will guide you with each breath that you take.  It is who you are and to strengthen this connection within ones self is to listen, validate and, as necessary, take action.  All will be well.

Your physical vehicles require maintenance similar to those that you drive. To get the most mileage for longevity, it requires being nurtured, pampered and acknowledged when it speaks. As it is ignored, it will get louder until you take action.  Honor its request and it will honor you in health.  External signs will appear for you to ponder before illness manifest; either literal or symbolic.


As the earth unveils through intensified weather patterns, there will be unrest within the masses.  The signs show up in families, communities and nations by way of segregation.  The broad spectrum of wars will continue for some time until perceived power is diminished.  During each phase of transition a rebuilding occurs within each individual.  As the walls crumble and the heart flourishes only than can you build a true foundation of peace for your world.

We wish you much love, peace and health

in your journey to

self enlightenment



Does life sometimes leave you feeling all tied up, and tired out?

Do you ever feel like you’ve been hung out to dry?

Everyday Practice

By: Jeffrey

 “To destroy an undesirable rate of mental vibration, put into operation the Principle of Polarity and concentrate upon the opposite pole to that which you desire to suppress. Kill out the undesirable by changing its polarity.”

—The Kybalion—

For those of you who have followed us over the years, you know I am a minister of Spiritual Science.  As such I strive to rise above mundane habits and influences by use of the Hermetic Principles that I call natural higher laws.  The above axiom is a good example of how that works, though the language (use of the word kill) seems a bit harsh in today's language.

First, how does vibration affect us?  Thought carries vibration, which when expressed to others transmits that vibration to them.  It is like striking a tuning fork of a certain key and having that vibration resonate in the string of the same key making it vibrate. If you sing a note at the resonance frequency of a fine piece of crystal glass it will vibrate, sing it loud enough it will shatter.  Like wise, the emotional vibrations of others are transmitted as a happy person walks in and raises our spirits; they “strike a cord” within us. Anger is often transferred in like manner; think of road rage as an example.

Diane noticed that listening to talk radio got me riled up and angry.  One day driving home I tuned in to the usual talk station.  I had been listening for a few minutes then the radio volume went down.  When I looked at the LCD indicator instead of seeing the station number or the time, it read the volume (which it does for a couple seconds after you adjust it) and the volume was set to 1.  I turned the volume back up and it was fine, but I changed the station to music.  Spirit made a point.

A couple days later I am listening again, though mindful of my mental state and how thoughts were affecting my mood.  On this day, a conservative talk radio host was interviewing a Christian Religious extremist.  She was the attorney for the Topeka Kansas church that is actively protesting at military funerals with slogans like “Thank God for dead soldiers and IEDs” and “Your son is burning in Hell, with all the dead soldiers”.

My visceral reaction was anger, but the axiom above popped into mind and so I chose polar opposites.  This woman espoused fear and I chose faith.  She spouted hate and I chose love.  She was so busy quoting bits of scripture out of context and so unwilling to listen to any opposing view, she clearly displayed a closed mind so I chose open mindedness.

The result, I felt the anger flow away, replaced by love and perhaps a bit of pity.  This poor obsessed woman was afraid; her voice had the quaver of anger and near terror.  I contemplated the source of her fear.  In her perception a state of moral decline, the acceptance of other religions and the acceptance of homosexuality is proof that our society is degenerating, and that “ours is the religion of the Sodomites”.  She clearly feels like her beliefs and her way of life are under assault.  So small is her real faith, that she hides her fear in the cloak of self-righteousness.  Perhaps she suffers from the Jungian concept of Action-reaction syndrome.  This is where internal shame over some thoughts or feelings is externally exhibited as a crusade against what they secretly long for.

 But one thing is certain, in that moment, her message of fear, made sense to me, not that it was right, but that I could understand what might trigger such hate and fear.  So now the energy I was sending this woman and her church was positive in the form of a prayer of love, not the vibration of anger, radiating form yet another car in afternoon traffic.  This is real world transmutation.  

 “While all is in The ALL, it is equally true that The ALL is in all.  To Him  who truly understands this truth, hath come great knowledge”

-The Kybalion-



Here’s  An Update:  

As of this writing, Congress has sent a bill to the President called: “The Respect for America’s Fallen Heroes Act”, which will make it unlawful to protest within 300 feet of any funeral service. When we fail to limit our behavior in the name of expressing our rights, we risk loosing some of those rights.  All rights come with responsibilites.  The protesters had the right to free speech, but not the right to cause serious emotional harm  to grieving families.

The 7

Hermetic Principles  


We live in the mind of God and our thought is part of God’s thought, thus thought is very powerful.  



“As above so Below”.



Ask your favorite Quantum Physicist, everything vibrates.



Everything and every thought exist on a continuum with a polar opposite.



“Eb and flow”, think Bio-rhythms and the old swing of the cosmic pendulum.



Most religions state this as Karma, or “for all who draw the sword shall die by the sword”  Mt 26:52, ...“A man reaps what he sows”  Gal 6:7



There are two essential genders, Male and Female, also expressed as Yin andYang.

Some of the funniest prose is written to be serious.  These are taken from actual product warnings and instructions:

"Do not use while sleeping."

Sears hair dryer


"You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside."

Bag of Fritos


"Product will be hot after heating."

Marks & Spencer bread pudding


"Do not iron clothes on body."

Rowenta iron


"Do not drive a car or operate machinery."

Boot’s children’s cough medicine


"Warning:  Keep out of children."

Korean kitchen knife


"Warning:  Contains nuts"

Sainsbury’s peanuts


"Instructions:  Open packet, eat nuts."

American Airlines peanut packet


"Do not attempt to stop chain

 with your hands."

T-Bone Steaks & Yellow Roses

-Author Unknown-

I walked into the grocery store not particularly interested in buying groceries. I wasn’t hungry. The pain of losing my husband of 7 years was still too raw.  And this grocery store held so many sweet memories.

He often came with me and almost every time he’d pretend to go off and look for something special. I knew what he was up to. I’d always spot him walking down the aisle with the three yellow roses in his hands.

He knew I loved yellow roses. With a heart filled with grief, I only wanted to buy my few items and leave, but even grocery shopping was different since he had passed on.

Shopping for one took time, a little more thought than it had for two. Standing by the meat, I searched for the perfect small steak and remembered how he had loved his steak.

Suddenly,  a woman came beside me. She was blonde, slim and lovely in a soft green pantsuit. I watched as she picked up a large package of T-bones, dropped them in her basket, hesitated, and then put them back. She turned to go and once again reached for the pack of steaks

She saw me watching her and she smiled. “My husband loves T-bones, but honestly, at these prices, I don’t know.”

I swallowed the emotion down my throat and met her pale blue eyes. “My husband passed away eight days ago,” I told her. Glancing at the package in her hands, I fought to control the tremble in my voice. “Buy him the steaks. And cherish every moment you have together.”

She shook her head and I saw the emotion in her eyes as she placed the package in her basket and wheeled away.

I turned and pushed my cart across the length of the store to the dairy products. There I stood, trying to decide which size milk I should buy.  A quart, I finally decided and moved on to the ice cream. If nothing else, I could always fix myself an ice cream cone.

I placed the ice cream in my cart and looked down the aisle toward the front. I saw first the green suit, then recognized the pretty lady coming towards me.   In her arms she carried a package and  on her face was the brightest smile I had ever seen. I would swear a soft halo encircled her blonde hair as she kept walking toward me,  her eyes holding  mine.

As she came closer, I saw what she held and tears began misting in my eyes. “These are for you,” she said and placed three beautiful long stemmed yellow roses in my arms. “When you go through the line, they will know these are paid for.” She leaned over and placed a gentle kiss on my cheek, then smiled again. I wanted to tell her what she’d done, what the roses meant, but still unable to speak, I watched as she walked away as tears clouded my vision.

I looked down at the beautiful roses nestled in the green tissue wrapping and found it almost unreal. How did she know? Suddenly the answer seemed so clear,  I wasn’t alone.

Oh, you haven’t forgotten me, have you? I whispered, with tears in my eyes. He was still with me, and she was his angel.

NOTE:  This article is yet again “Gurgle”; that is a sentimental tale received via E-mail, almost always with the order to, “send this to all your friends”.  We refuse to pass these along as email, but when they evoke good emotions and ring of truth, we print them here.  I have not been able to verify a source for this story or its veracity, but it conveys a truth I have witnessed.  Spirit communicates to us daily through little synchronicities, if we have the eyes to see.  There are No accidents, the hand of God (Universe, Allah, Yahwey, Wokan Tonka...) is in all things.  Also, well illustrated here is this: any of us can be the angel for another,  if we tune into our hearts and follow the guidance of the quite voice within.




Divisions, based on tribal prejudices such as race, blood line, and religion are not our nature, but an expression of our animalistic fear for survival.  Our true nature is seen in the youngest of us.  This is where undiluted and unspoiled human potential lies.

Attitude of Grattitude, Waking Prayer

Even though I clutch my blanket and growl when the alarm rings

- Thank you, Lord that I can hear. There are many who are deaf.

Even though I keep my eyes closed against the morning light as long as possible

- Thank you, Lord that I can see. Many are blind.

Even though I huddle in my bed and put off rising

- Thank you, Lord that I have the strength to rise. There are many who are bedridden.

Even though I start this day not knowing where it will take me, or what lies ahead

- Thank you, Lord for being beside me this and every day.



On a Personal Note!


As a child I read about Chuck Yeager, the space race, the X-15 project, and other great things happening out at Edwards Air Force Base.  I vividly remember that feeling of longing as I looked at a picture of a rocket motor test, and wished I could just go there and see the place where they tested rocket engines. Now, thanks to serendipity, I now work on Edwards Air Force Base.

As a child I marveled at the adventures of TV's Star Trek, and longed to explore "strange new worlds." That lead me to the nuclear Navy, to learn the mysteries of nuclear science.  

I have stood befor a reactor pool and gazed upon the blue glowing fuel.  I worked on a nuclear reactor on board the real USS Enterprise.   I have stood on the rocks where Captain Kirk battled the Gorn (that distant world is a park 13 miles from my home).  I have been to the rocket test site, and stood in the middle of the main runway, where the Shuttle has landed, and countless other flights have touched earth after soaring through the skies.

Only later in life, when I really started on  the spiritual path, did I realize that the drive for knowledge was my searching for greater truths via science.  But what I have learned is this: the greatest truth is in our hearts, written there by our Creator.

Thank you Spirit for a rich and wonderful life.

Diane's Client Testimonials

Diane has truly been there in the thick of things with me ever since I moved to NC and met her. She is a lovely and powerful presence to me when I am talking with her. I miss seeing her face.

 She has given me messages from guides that have helped me realize what I do want to manifest more of in my life and what I need to naturally let go that isn’t feeding my life.

 I have been thankful for both experiences because they’ve been such a guiding tool. I know now I can ask for what I want, but mainly all I have to do is say How can I be 100% of who I am, please show me the way!

 Then, I can let God and his assistants show me. It’s awesome!

 Thank you, Cathy - NC
