Some of Life's most beautiful and delicate things, are camouflaged,

requiring a quiet and gentle approach.

Welcome Friends

Its summer time.   The Modern Spiritualists called the after life, "SummerLand" because the Native Americans thought of heaven as the land of endless summer.

Well if you live in a cooler climate and hunt and gather your food, summer is the best.  Here in Southern California the summer goes on and on, but then we do also live in a desert.    

Welcome back to our newsletter, where it is always summer...ish, no matter what the weather outside. Hopefully you will find a little bit of serenity or at least a smile inside.   

Even if you don't read another page, take this advice.  Take time to enjoy the summer.  Swim, or fish, or hike, or sun bath; pamper your self.  Enjoyment of life is life affirming, so find some joy even if (or especially if) you are facing serious challenges.

If there is no joy, you're not living you're just surviving.  You deserve to love life, God loves you.

Love & Light




At the beach or at the pool,

Summer time is really cool!

Diane’s Welcome
Welcome to Summer :-),


  Jeffrey and I went to see our sons, Richard and JD in Washington State.  Richard acted in a dinner theater comedy and we were very proud of him.  This has been a life long passion and he is stepping up to the plate, what a wonderful gift.

I stayed for an extra week and visited with my friends Cheryl and Steve... it was so relaxing to take time out, reminisce and just be.  In August, we will be taking a week and going to visit my oldest daughter, Maria, and our grandkids, Desi and Gabby.  We are really looking forward to this as we have not seen them for several years.

I will also be teaching a class, "The Art Of Manifesting" on Saturday, July 28th for those of you who are interested.  Please register at the latest by Tuesday, July 10th, by calling 888-910-2038 and leave a message for me.

This year has been wonderful so far and I know that it will continue to be so. We are looking at moving to Bear Valley Springs, CA this fall and becoming more permanent than we have been over the last 10 years.  We are releasing our 5th wheel for a home...Yahoo!!!

I wish you a fulfilled, abundant summer with all the blessings that life brings to your doorstep.  

With Love, Diane



With Love, From Serione'

Channeled by Diane 

This channeled message is being repeated in this newsletter for those of you who are truly willing to step forward in this year of magnification.  As you follow your heart with enthusiasm, we wish you many blessings on your path of delivery.

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?   

  Issues revolved around your belief systems are internal and will manifest outward. Recognize your struggles in accepting that which you desire  by processing through old emotions and analytical beliefs to create  blended alignment for your desires to manifest.


We wish you balance in search of your hearts true desires ...Serione’




Recent health issues have reminded me that now is the time to take care of my health.  I asked some of my friends about diet and exercise and it seems like there is a lot of denial out there, but see for yourself.

Dude, so maybe I spend a lot of  time behind the computer.  But I still eat a lot of salads.

Yeh, They opened a McDonald's in Mombassa a year ago, but it hasn't affected me at all. Why do you ask?

No Wayyy...  I weigh every morning and the scale hasn't budged in a year.

So I put on a few pounds.  She still loves me just the way I am.


Here's a "Secret" Pass it On

By: Jeffrey

In the video, “The Secret®”,  a great deal of attention is given to the power of positive thinking (oops! wasn’t that a book title some years ago).   It is all about how we can manifest great things in our lives e.g.. wealth, love, possessions.  Well, there is great truth in The Secret and I would recommend it to anyone of open mind.  This most important concept is that the Universe responds to our thoughts.

However, I differ with their view in some ways.  In The Secret they suggest that the Universe wants to provide us with good things.  But that is a judgment.  More accurately it is here to make dreams and nightmares alike come true.  

Spiritual Scientists express this "Law of Attraction" in our first law.  The “Universe is Mental”.  No, not like "dude are you Mental?"  Rather, we exist in the mind of God/Universe, and therefore all thought, including ours, has power.  

But the mental component is only one part of our consciousness.  We have emotions, and subconscious doubts, or internal programs (I call them fixed beliefs) that corrupt pure thought.

Emotions carry vibration and therefore they carry energy.  That energy can empower thought. This makes manifesting our dreams easier, or if it is at odds with our thoughts it can slow or stop the manifesting.  

The source of many covert emotions is often those pesky fixed beliefs.  A fixed belief can be something like mine from childhood:  “everyone is perfect”.  The problem with that belief is that I knew I was not perfect, so I felt like I was flawed and a faker, because “everyone else was perfect”.  That belief also created many hurt feelings because if everyone was perfect then hurtful acts must have been deliberate.

So, if one focuses only on "trying" to think positive they may also be feeling undeserving.  They get sabotaged by an underlying thought that says: ”Loser” or “Dreamer”.  That subconscious saboteur gets power from negative emotions, even emotions of fear or desperation.  I'm sure the video made this point: If you focus on lack not the abundance you wish to attract, guess what you will get?

In "The Secret" they have the right message and right idea, it’s just not as easy for everyone.  

Each of us has different issues, crosses to bear and mountains to climb.  So there is work involved.  Add too this, there is still Karmic Law.  I'm not saying you can blame the difficulties in this life on some evil you did in a past life.  But, if your particular incarnation is about being on the receiving end of something bad, as a lesson for the soul, then you may simply not be able to overcome that intentional path from your higher self.  

It is, after all, in how we react to tragedy or aggression against us that we show if we are evolved enough to take the high road.  If we somehow avoided that fate, or failed to climb that mountain, then there is no lesson, or the lesson is hollow.  

I saw the book, “The Secret”, the other day in Costco.  Spirituality for sale, at bargain prices.  Wow, how is that for manifesting.  Though I have not read the book, I thumbed through it and it certainly contains some great messages/wisdom.

More importantly, I am asking you not to throw the baby out with the bathwater.   If the book doesn’t seem to work it’s not because it was not truthful.  If the book and video do not work, do NOT take it as evidence that you are flawed, or a “Loser” but rather as evidence that there is still more work to be done.

In our culture of instant gratification, everyone is looking for that “secret” that will make them rich or make their dreams come true.  Some will succeed.  After all, those successes fuel the belief in others that this is possible and points us in the direction that the great truth that “The Universe is Mental”.  But there is more to learn.  The book seemed to have some very good points and part of the path is in the practice.  To this end it seemed to have some tools that would help, and practice which over time helps us to silence the doubts and small hurt voices.  So I do recommend the video, and as for the book I withhold my endorsement until I have actually read it, but I have NO doubt that it will serve some of you.  


While the site is VERY commercial, it is also some-ones secret to abundance.  It is worth the visit if you have not already seen the video.

The Best Medicine


  The following article I borrowed from a website called about three years ago.  Di and I recently took a trip to Seattle and one of the flight attendants (a gentleman) made a couple cute statements that really lightened us up for the flight.  It reminded us of this article. 

   Please visit for more reading like this, excerpts from official reports, and just plain odd tales from people's work, its worth the laugh.

Totally off the record... I was flying to San Francisco this weekend, and the stewardess reading the flight safety  information had the whole plane looking at each other like "what the heck?".  So once we got airborne, I took out my laptop and typed up what she said so I wouldn't forget. I've left out a few parts I'm sure, but this is most of it.


Before Takeoff...

Hello and welcome to Alaska flight 438 to San Francisco. If you're going to San Francisco, you're in the right place. If you're not going to San Francisco, you're about to have a really long evening.  We'd like to tell you now about some important safety features of this aircraft. The most important safety feature we have aboard this plane is the Flight Attendants. Please look at one now.

There are 5 exits aboard this plane, 2 at the front, 2 over the wings, and one out the plane's rear end. If you're seated in one of the exit rows, please do not store your bags by your feet. That would be a really bad idea.  Please take a moment and look around and find the nearest exit.  Count the rows of seats between you and the exit. In the event that the need arises to find one, trust me, you'll be glad you did. We have pretty blinking lights on the floor that will blink in the direction of the exits. White ones along the normal rows, and pretty red ones at the exit rows.

In the event of a loss of cabin pressure these baggy things will drop down over your head. You stick it over your nose and mouth like the flight attendant is doing now. The bag won't inflate, but there's oxygen there, I promise.  

If you are sitting next to a small child, or someone who is acting like a small child, please do us all a favor and put on your mask first. If you are traveling with two or more children, please take a moment now to decide which one is your favorite. Help that one first, and then work your way down.  In the seat pocket in front of you is a pamphlet about the safety features of this plane. I usually use it as a fan when I'm having my own personal summer.  It makes a very good fan. It also has pretty pictures. Please take it out and play with it now.  Please take a moment now to make sure your seat belts are fastened low and tight about your waist. To fasten the belt, insert the metal tab into the buckle. To release, it's a pully thing not a pushy  thing like you're car cuz you're in an airplane, hello!

There is no smoking in the cabin on this flight. There is also no smoking in the lavatories. If we see smoke coming from the lavatories, we will assume you are on fire and put you out.   This is a free service we provide.  There are two smoking

sections on this flight, one outside each wing exit. We do have a movie in the smoking sections tonight, hold on, let me check what it is, Oh here it is, the movie tonight is 'Gone with the Wind'.

In a moment we will be turning off the cabin lights, and it's going to get really dark, really fast. If you're afraid of   the dark,  now would be a good time to reach up and press the yellow button. The yellow button turns on your reading light. Please don't press the orange button unless you absolutely have to. The orange button is your seat ejection button.  

We're glad to have you with us on board this flight. Thank you for choosing Alaska Air, and giving us your business and your money. If there's anything we can do to make you more comfortable, please don't hesitate to ask.  If you weren't

strapped down you would have given me a standing ovation wouldn't you?

After Landing...

Welcome to the San Francisco International Airport. Sorry about the bumpy landing. It's not the captain's fault. It's not the copilot's fault. It's the asphalt.  

Please remain seated until the plane is parked at the gate. At no time in history has a passenger beaten a plane to the gate. So please don't even try. Please be careful opening the overhead bins because shift happens.      



I like the following quote from Einstein, but Diane

doesn't agree with "Z".



A Worthy Charity

Some dear friends of ours are embarking on a mission of the heart.  They have asked for support and we pass that request along to you.  We believe in following the path you are guided to, and this is their path.  In a world full of fear and political tensions this is also a courageous act.

Poverty is a noose that strangles humility and breeds disrespect for God and man.

- Sioux Indian Proverb


Ideas must work through the brains and arms of men, or they are no better than dreams.

-- Ralph Waldo Emerson


Please read the Following written by our friends Michael and Rhett:

There is much focus on AIDS and the orphan rates in Africa.  The current state of Uganda is poverty, famine, disease, corruption, tribal warfare and despair.  These are major concerns but we would like to redirect your attention to the feeling of powerless felt by many.  Imagine going through years of college, receiving a degree, and then wandering the streets without being able to find a job.

Our goal is to assist Clovis N. Ategeka in building his "Vision Café".  Here he will teach leadership and entrepreneurial skills to give the youth confidence to create their own businesses and future.

Clovis wants to build more than a business.  He is building a brighter future for Uganda.  Along with other Ugandan Visionary youth, they started a nonprofit organization called Vision Force Uganda with one principle - With Vision, We Shall Succeed!

Vision Force Uganda conducts seminars with successful businessmen from the surrounding town, and high ranking and respected leaders to give the youth insights on how someone can create their own future.  This view of the future is needed since many college graduates find themselves with diplomas but no opportunities in this war torn society.

We are assisting Clovis in raising funds that we will personally bring to Uganda along with manpower to set up his Vision Café to its fullest potential.  The Café will provide internet connection and computer services at subsidized prices to Vision Force Uganda members as well as the local college students.  It will also act as a source of supporting funds to this nonprofit organization.

Vision Café will also be a forum where Clovis will hold meetings and conduct many of his seminars for his Vision Force Uganda students.


The Vision Café has been up and running since December 2006.  Since its beginning, the Café has been operating so successfully that it had to be moved to a location that could accommodate its growth and increased services offered.  We need to raise an additional $52,000 to expand on what has already begun.  Our group consist of four members.  Michael and I are being joined by Moses Bekunda and Lila Javan.  Moses is currently living in Los Angeles but is a native of Kabwohe, located in the western part of Uganda.  He is looking forward to making a difference in Africa.  We are thankful that he will be there as our guide, interpreter, and friend.   Lila is living in Venice, CA and will be shooting the footage of our incredible journey, and creating the most amazing documentary which has already received some industry interest.  All donations will be acknowledged at the end of the documentary.

All money goes towards the mission and the café.  No one going is being paid for their efforts

We will be in Uganda July 19th - August 4th.  We need to receive all donations by July 10th.


Thank you for your time and consideration.

The Art of Manifesting
Learn to manifest your desires, get out of your own way

This course is designed to assist you in realizing your manifesting potential.  You will see how the act of creating is built on the momentum of internal beliefs, which is mirrored by the Universal Laws of cause and effect. In learning the art of manifesting you will realize your part in it and what is required for your desires and dreams to build and physically present themselves in your reality.  As you become aware of what you create on a daily basis, you can focus on consciously building energy by commitment, perseverance, and patience with attention to perception, behavior and subtleties.  You will learn to:
