Words of wisdom

The important point of spiritual practice is not to try to escape your
life, but to face it -- exactly and completely.
~ Dainin Katagiri Roshi

Even if it is difficult to do it is important to face our obstacles as to not allow them to turn into mountains that then seem insurmountable.

Right now I am facing my own obstacles and realize that sometimes we need to do the thing we think we cannot do and in doing so we grow a little more every day. If you can remember back to your teenage years you will remeber suffering from growing pains. I do and this growth may come with it's own growing pains but it then reminds me of something I read.... External obstacles are internal resistance to change. Which then means that if it hurts to much what is the internal resistance??
I am being my own devils advocate and now I must leave because the only way I can find out if there is resistance internal or otherwise is to go and find my peace and my center and go within.

Till Later....

Summer solstice 2008

Once again we find ourselves at this powerful gateway. Another opportunity to create the reality we wish to experience and a wonderful statement from a movie...PS I love you, pops into my memory. "My business is to create, it doesn't even matter what you do...create something new and there it is and it's you out in the world, outside of you and you can look at it or hear it or read it or feel it and you know a little more about you....a little bit more than anybody else does."

I love it , it sums up creation for yourself. I stand at this doorway again this year with the sun streaming through the window filled with excitement. I have been fortunate that the Universe provided me with some time to ponder upon my life and where I would like it to go. I am ready to take the next step and at the eve of this solstice I will know exactly what I am putting out there to manifest in my life.

I urge you to take the time now to think about where you wish to go and who you wish to remain through it all. Look at the qualities you admire within and without you and cultivate that now.
Meditate or slow down long enough to get in touch with yourself, to hear that still inner voice and pay attention to it's guidance. The Universe knows only love and it is up to you to allow it to flow through you at all times. Open your heart at this gateway and experience the abundance that is rightfully yours. Seize this moment to find your bliss, dare to dream big, kick fear out the door and watch as it all unfolds for you.

Have a wonderful solstice and remember the cliche...Be all that you can be!!!!

Comments are appreciated...

Hi there,

This is a message to ER......
I am not sure how to reply to your comments made but want you to know that I really appreciate them and thank you for the info on Mandela and the Inauguration speech. It did come as a bit of a surprise but reminded me that I did not hear those words from him at the time and was confused when I saw it thanks for refreshing my memory.

I love comments on my blog and invite eeveryone to add if they so choose.
ER...your comments did inspire me to keep writting and for that I am very grateful. It came at a time when I needed to hear it. THANKS!!

Leading me to attention to all that impacts your life as it is gently guiding you to where you wish to go. The universe does not wish for us to struggle and experience pain but if it's gentle nudges do not get our attention then it will push harder and harder until it does and we respond.

Make this a great week of manifesting....Summer solstice is a good time to manifest your desires for the summer and the rest of your year!!!

Gratitude to me and thee

I recieved this update about gratitude and am grateful for the reminder. Graditude is the fuel for bringing more abundance into our lives. It puts us in a space of higher vibration and the feeling of gratitude brings more to be grateful for. Practice theses daily. I know I will!!

9 Agreements for Co-Creating through the Higher Laws of Love and Gratitude:

1. I agree that a world of Love and Gratitude begins with me. I choose to be a conscious mirror and model of the change I wish to see in the world.

2. I agree to consciously set an intention for manifesting something miraculous in my life -- everyday and in every way.

3. I agree to tap into Gratitude on a daily basis and as much as possible in every waking moment. I know that the rewards of doing so flow through and extend beyond me, strengthening the collective field of Gratitude from which we may all derive benefit.

4. I agree to be a consistently uplifting inspiration in all my interactions. I commit to see and mirror back the greatness of each soul who crosses my path. I choose to discover and nurture the light within so that it may shine forth to others and magnify their life.

5. I agree to honor each individual's right to choose their own belief system and life path.

6. I agree to be open to both give and receive within my local and global community. In all my dealings, I seek win-win, mutually edifying interactions and transactions.

7. I agree to be my word in my exchanges with others. I realize that my personal influence is magnified to the degree I am able to keep my word with myself and others. If something comes up and I decide to change what I had agreed upon, then I agree to make that communication as soon as possible to the affected party.

8. I agree to love and enjoy my life as much as possible!

9. And, last but certainly not least, I agree to be Grateful for ME!

Women can't you see....

Unreal ideals reel in the minds of men
Creating Gods and original sins
And now as in days of old
Trying to deny the truth of the women
And their stories told
Taking away the Earth and the snake
Taking away your truth, making themselves great

Men will say and believe things
Without touching
Tearing things apart
Without feeling the heart

Religions and grand designs
Explanations laced with lies
Male laws, Male Gods
Male Saviors, Male Odds
You will see these men amongst you
Placing themselves above you
With their deeds and words
And insidious things unseen and unheard
Do they really listen or just make you think they've heard

I understand there must be balance
But we must go way back to the feminine essence
To say it's all the same, is just another game
Played in the laps of Gods and Men, one-in-the-same

This is not male bashing, but there are some that I am tracking
And as both male and female myself I can SEE something else
I am raising the bar so I can see where they are
Slipping and Sliding
They are in your midst
When you speak, listen how they answer this

Long live The Goddess
Long live The Priestess
Long live the way it was before all of this
Forget about the lies of recorded History
Rise and tell the truth of Herstory

And be careful of the ones who think that they are better than you
Textured male condescension twisting all that is true
Rise said Maya Angelou
Rise because she was talking to you

The wisdom of the Earth
The truth of our birth
Help us to see the beauty
Of this feminine Universe

And mostly thank you for choosing me to lead you back to thee......humbly...HZ

This was a poem written by Hanakia Zedek.....He was a very powerful force in my life and has reminded me of many things that have helped me on my journey back to me. I thank him and I honor his journey.

To me this poem says that women need to rise up and step into their power and be all they can be!!!
Let your power no longer be diminished by the roles you feel you must play. Vulnerability is your greatest strength. Your intuition your guiding light.

I remember the moment.
The tightness in my chest released and flooding my body.

The wave of it leaving me feeling everything
Exquisitely, acute.
The sound, the look, the touch, the words, my voice.

I remember the moment
my body alive, awake again.

I remember the moment
and the memory sustains me!


Sometimes these memories are all it takes.....(remembering the sensation, the feeling of love and happiness, of being acutely aware of everything around you and within you) create what you wish for in life.

Attraction ... all you have to do is remember the feeling and allow it to stay with you while you visualize what it is you wish for.
Start creating the world you wish to experience one thought and feeling at a time.

MSG a slow poison

An article I was of many...I decided to copy and forward to all!!!

MSG The food additive MSG (Mono-Sodium Glutamate) is a slow poison. MSG hides behind 25 or more names, such as Natural Flavoring.' MSG is even in your favorite coffee from Tim Horton's and Starbucks coffee shops! I wondered if there could be an actual chemical causing the massive obesity epidemic, and so did a friend of mine, John Erb. He was a research assistant at the University of Waterloo in Ontario , Canada , and spent years working for the government. He made an amazing discovery whilegoing through scientific journals for a book he was writing called The SlowPoisoning of America. In hundreds of studies around the world, scientists were creating obese mice and rats to use in diet or diabetes test studies. No strain of rat or mice is naturally obese, so scientists have to createthem. They make these creatures morbidly obese by injecting them withMSG when they are first born. The MSG triples the amount of insulin the pancreas creates, causing rats(and perhaps humans) to become obese. They even have a name for thefat rodents they create: 'MSG-Treated Rats.' When I heard this, I was shocked. I went into my kitchen and checked the cupboards and the refrigerator. MSG was in everything -- the Campbell 'ssoups, the Hostess Doritos, the Lays flavored potato chips, Top Ramen,Betty Crocker Hamburger Helper, Heinz canned gravy, Swanson frozenprepared meals, and Kraft salad dressings, especially the 'healthy low-fat' ones. The items that didn't have MSG marked on the product label had something called 'Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein,' which is just another name for Monosodium Glutamate. It was shocking to see just how many of the foods we feed our children everyday are filled with this stuff. MSG is hidden under manydifferent names in order to fool those who read the ingredient list, so thatthey don't catch on. (Other names for MSG are 'Accent, 'Aginomoto,''Natural Meat Tenderizer,' etc.) But it didn't stop there. When our family went out to eat, we started asking at the restaurants what menu items contained MSG. Many employees, even the managers, swore they didn't use MSG. But when we ask for the ingredient list, which they grudgingly provided, sure enough, MSG and Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein were everywhere. Burger King, McDonald's, Wendy's, Taco Bell, every restaurant -- even the sit-down eateries like TGIF, Chili's, Applebee's, and Denny's -- use MSGin abundance. Kentucky Fried Chicken seemed to be the WORST offender: MSG was in every chicken dish, salad dressing. and gravy. No wonder I lovedto eat that coating on the skin -- their secret spice was MSG! So why is MSG in so many of the foods we eat? Is it a preservative, or a vitamin? Not according to my friend John Erb. In his book The Slow Poisoning of America, he said that MSG is added to food for the addictive effect it has on the human body. Even the propaganda website sponsored by the food manufacturers lobby group supporting MSG explains that the reason they add it to food is to make people eat more. A study of the elderly showed that older people eat more of the foods that it is added to. The Glutamate Association lobbying group says eatingmore is a benefit to the elderly, but what does it do to the rest of us? 'Betcha can't eat [just] one,' takes on a whole new meaning where MSG is concerned! And we wonder why the nation is overweight! MSG manufacturers themselves admit that it addicts people to their products. It makes people choose their product over others, and makespeople eat more of it than they would if MSG wasn't added. Not only is MSG scientifically proven to cause obesity, it is an addictivesubstance. Since its introduction into the American food supply fifty years ago,MSG has been added in larger and larger doses to the pre-packaged meals,soups, snacks, and fast foods we are tempted to eat everyday. The FDA has set no limits on how much of it can be added to food. They claim it's safe to eat in any amount. But how can they claim it's safewhen there are hundreds of scientific studies with titles like these: 'The monosodium glutamate (MSG) obese rat as a model for the study of exercise in obesity.' Gobatto CA, Mello MA, Souza CT, Ribeiro IA. Res Commun Mol Pathol Pharmacol. 2002. 'Adrenalectomy abolishes the food-induced hypothalamic serotonin release in both normal and monosodium glutamate-obese rats.' Guimaraes RB, Telles MM, Coelho VB, Mori C, Nascimento CM, Ribeiro. Brain Res Bull. 2002 Aug. 'Obesity induced by neonatal monosodium glutamate treatment in spontaneously hypertensive rats: An animal model of multiple risk factors.' Iwase M, Yamamoto M, Iino K, Ichikawa K, Shinohara N, Yoshinari Fujishima. Hypertens Res. 1998 Mar. 'Hypothalamic lesion induced by injection of monosodium glutamate in suckling period and subsequent development of obesity.' Tanaka K,Shimada M, Nakao K Kusunoki. Exp Neurol. 1978 Oct. No, the date of that last study was not a typo; it was published in 1978. Both the 'medical research community' and 'food manufacturers' have known about the side effects of MSG for decades. Many more of the studies mentioned in John Erb's book link MSG to diabetes, migraines and headaches, autism, ADHD, and even Alzheimer's. So what can we do to stop the food manufactures from dumping this fattening and addictive MSG into our food supply and causing the obesity epidemic we now see? Several months ago, John Erb took his book and his concerns to one of the highest government health officials in Canada . While he was sitting in the government office, the official told him, 'Sure, I know how bad MSG is. I wouldn't touch the stuff.' But this top-level government official refuses to tell the public what he knows. The big media doesn't want to tell the public either, fearing issues with their advertisers. It seems that the fallout on the fast food industrymay hurt their profit margin. The food producers and restaurants havebeen addicting us to their products for years, and now we are payingthe price for it. Our children should not be cursed with obesity causedby an addictive food additive. But what can I do about it? I'm just one voice! What can I do to stop the poisoning of our children, while our governments are insuring financial protection for the industry that is poisoning us? This message is going out to everyone I know in an attempt to tell you the truth that the corporate-owned politicians and media won't tell you. The best way you can help to save yourself and your children from this drug-induced epidemic is to forward this article to everyone. With any luck, it will circle the globe before politicians can pass the legislationprotecting those who are poisoning us. The food industry learned a lot from the tobacco industry. Imagine if big tobacco had a bill like this in place before someone blew the whistle on nicotine? If you are one of the few who can still believe that MSG is good for us and you don't believe what John Erb has to say, see for yourself. Go to the National Library of Medicine at Type in thewords 'MSG Obese' and read a few of the 115 medical studies that appear. We the public do not want to be rats in one giant experiment, and we do not approve of food that makes us into a nation of obese, lethargic,addicted sheep, feeding the food industry's bottom line while waiting forthe heart transplant, the diabetic-induced amputation, blindness, or otherobesity-induced, life-threatening disorders. With your help we can put an end to this poison. Do your part in sending this message out by word of mouth, e-mail, or by distribution of this printout to your friends all over the world and stop this 'Slow Poisoning of Mankind' by the packaged food industry. Blowing the whistle on MSG is our responsibility, so get the word out.

"You must do the thing you think you cannot do"

- Eleanor Roosevelt

This a an inspirational quote for me in this time of change. More words to live by this month!!

Friday, June 6, 2008


I have come to understand the value of solitude.

I have come to look forward to listening to my own inner voice and know that only silence will allow me to hear it clearly.

To find the stillness in a busy life can be challenging and I have come to realize, must be made a priority. It is easy to slip into and old pattern or look into the future and get caught in fear. For me the one thing that works is to remain present, to stay in the moment. Here I am safe, here I know exactly what I am doing.

As this week draws to a close I embrace the weekend for the opportunity it brings me to once again find my solitude, to be still, centered and make clear choices from it. I wait for the perfect time to reveal myself and watch the ripple effect!

Not everyone will agree with the choices I make from this space within. I will stay strong and honor myself for I am the one that I live with all the moments of my life.

In solitude I am least alone. In silence I find my voice.

The time is now...

Now is the time to look deep inside and to find forgiveness for self. To let go of all those judgements and to move in and on.
Now is the time to take responsibility for where you are in life for your own health and well being.
It is a lot harder for some to accept that they co-created the mess they may be in and that being healthy is not just physical but mental and emotional too.
Start looking at life from the inside out and not the outside in. This is how creation and manifestation works....from the inside out!

Mahatma Gandhi said "be the change you wish to see in the world" Now is the time!
It is impossible to have something on the outside if you do not have it on the inside first. If you seek peace find it within you first and the universal law works in your favor by resonating with it and bringing more to you. More power, energy, thoughts and feelings to full fill your wish.

Perfect health starts in the mind and in your emotional field. You are truly as healthy as you think and feel you are. Stop giving your power away. Start a new life, start feeling, really feeling and when necessary choose something different.
Only when we get in touch with those feelings deep inside do we get the opportunity to change them or change our perception of them. Change is not hard but it can be uncomfortable. It is like changing your cars' tire for the first time...not always a clean, easy job but once it is done, the car handles better and you feel great having accomplished that. (speaking from a womens point of view of course) A win win situation all round. And it started with the willingness to do so.

One step at a time. Take charge of your feelings, they are yours after all and you do have free choice about that. If you feel beaten down and without hope that is the eyes with which you will see everything.
I know from personal experience if I choose to look at life through the love in my heart I see love and beauty all around me.
Now is the time to look through your love and respect for self at the world around you.

I challenge you to love yourself unconditionally. To finally take is the time!

As people come and go

Sometimes people come into our space with a little gift, a word or an opportunity and when we are aware we get it...we see it. We allow it to move within and through us and we allow them to move on.

It could be as simple as the words I am so in love with you. THE impact that has on your heart hits you like a wave. It is almost asif it was the key that unlocked the door and allowed you to experience the wonder of your heart so full, open and receptive.

With the gift of their words and the energy that accompanied it you felt it intensely and the brief glimpse of that experience opened the door to bring you more and more awareness and more and more opportunities to experience that fully.

Today I am thankful for those people, those moments that impacted my energy and life powerfully enough to shift it, assisting me in raising my vibrations.

I am also thankful for my ability to accept the change.

So to all of you who have impacted my life and my world and helped me raise my vibrations...I thank you...I love you and I am so grateful for the gift of you!

childish 'woffle'

You may have asked me once...what do you want from me?

I am facinated by you, in awe of the whole experience,
like a child my attention is totally focus on it all.
A new toy that holds such promise and hours of entertainment,
wondering how I will live without it, undevided, unconditional captivation...
and then a butterfly catches my eye.

And just like that my focus shifts and you are left with the memory of being adored.

There is nothing like being in the midst of such childlike splendour, knowing and feeling you are at the center of it all.
Enjoy the moment, stay present and bask in it's gift of purity.
Heaven existed just for you. The sun smiled only on you.
And even though it may have been brief, it was like nothing you have experienced before.

Be at peace, you are and always will be adored, along with the butteflies and pebbles and more!

What can I say.....I like just spitting it out and letting it land where it may...!!!!

Tonight I sleep

Tonight I sleep so soundly even if the hours are few,
For my heart is so full.

It is amazing to know it's as simple as this,
the present is all it is.

A look at the world through new eyes and in it's beauty is seems so strange to be,
a dream awake inside of me.

Tonight I sleep for I will to be awake for eternity!
