A Little Testimony Part 1

The vision that changed my whole life has been that which has sustained me through every dark night of the soul and endless days of unbearable physical suffering.

During the time I was experiencing divine guidance from Mary Magdalene I was also blessed to feel the presence of Padre Pio and St. Therese of Lisieux. Later Joan of Arc aided me in countless ways. 

In the last few years my physical condition has become more serious and there are times when the suffering is so great I am sure I can not possibly make it another hour. I weep from the depths of my soul as the feeling of illness and doom is beyond anything I can cope with.

It is then that I turn to the saints and listen while lying in my bed to the stories of their lives. When you are suffering it is impossible not to think constantly of all beings who are suffering. When you feel you may very well be coming to the end of your life you think constantly of all your shortcomings and all your regrets. When you suffer from an illness for years and years on end you become like an island. Everyone seems to drift further and further away as you struggle to keep up with your every day life.

It has been a long journey to reach the age of seventy. It has been difficult yes, but it has also been miraculous. As I lived each day not knowing if I would be sick or well I also did not know what miracle would occur to save me. The blessings that have been showered upon me have only strengthened my belief and my faith. 

There have been long, dry periods where it seems there is no consolation and there have been times of incredible and miraculous wonder where I have been blessed with the gift of The Holy Spirit. 

I have been at my best friend’s bedside as she spent her last days on this earth. I have been shown the meaning of her suffering and the visitation of her guardian angels bequeathing her more time. I have seen the sorrow and the glory of death. I am not afraid to die. It is living we must overcome.

And so at the age of seventy I wish to put to paper where this journey has led me. Is there a meaning in our suffering that is beyond our comprehension? Yes there is. Are the saints in communion with Jesus  and feel what he feels? Yes they do. Are we part of that sanctified communion? Yes we are. Does your suffering and overcoming aid people anywhere in the world who need aid? Yes it does. 

In 2001 I had a vision. This event turned my life upside down and inside out. Mary Magdalene asked me to tell a part of the story. As I listened and wrote all kinds of miraculous things began to happen. The illness coexisted side by side with the miracles. There are  reasons why this happens. Now after all these years and all I have experienced I wish to acknowledge and share the meaning, as I have come to know it, in the agony of suffering and the glory of the grace of Heaven.

What If

 

What if you absolutely knew that your suffering was a divine transmutation process?

What if you knew that your overcoming saved someone’s life?

What if you are the most powerful being transmuting the most important and significant energies for the planet and beyond?

What if nothing is what it seems and the angels are constantly rejoicing at your courage, fortitude and faith?

What if just the knowing and believing magnified the power to change anything?

What if the less you thought and the more you felt brought you more into alignment with your true spiritual nature?

What if you absolutely knew that this is the time and what you do from this moment on has a greater effect than ever before?

What if only some of us remembering will tip the scales in favor of Heaven?

And what if love really does conquer all?

I Believe

Great suffering is generated as a consequence of the world going through great transformation. In the midst of this the ability to sustain our lives and strengths must reside in our trust in the Supreme Being who is God.
Medium: Joao de Deus
John of God

When I was going through a period of great suffering I prayed every night for help. The answer came. I was to go to Brazil to see John of God. It seemed impossible for so many reasons but I knew I must go and I did in August of 2014. It was a life changing experience.

John of God came to me in a dream recently. He told me I must come back. Since then he has been showing up everywhere including a new documentary about him.  https://aquesttoheal-beyondthephysical.vhx.tv/products/a-quest-to-heal-beyond-the-physical As I watched the documentary I was struck by an image of the triangle that is on the wall in the Casa in Brazil. This is where people place their requests and prayers and lay they foreheads inside the triangle. I took a picture off the screen of the triangle and to me there is no mistaking that an image of Mary the Blessed Mother has manifested where the people place their foreheads.

I believe.

What if you knew absolutely that your suffering was a divine transmutation process?

What if you knew that your every overcoming saved a life somewhere?

What if this is a supreme divine truth?

What if nothing is what it seems and the angels are constantly rejoicing at your courage and fortitude and faith?

What if you are the most powerful divine being capable of transmuting the most important and significant happenings on the planet and beyond?

What if believing it with you whole heart and soul made it all the more powerful?

What if bringing yourself back to remembrance was a holy and sacred act?

What if your capacity for love and forgiveness in spite of everything was changing the world?

On Becoming a Grandmother

handshake_xchng5

During these chaotic times, miracles abound, and through one of these most incredible miracles I have become a grandmother.  My granddaughter Lila came to me from across the world.  She came on the breath of a prayer.  She came through the love we had for her from the moment we knew she was to be ours.  She came through the faith in this knowing that no matter how long and difficult the journey, she would one day be home and fall into the arms of a family that loves her beyond all measure.

How can I describe this incredible experience?  How can I explain a love that has expanded our hearts and our lives beyond anything we ever could have imagined?  This blessing, this merging of hearts and lives is heaven-sent and is in the truest sense the meaning of oneness.  This babe, from a world far away, this magnificent child, has awakened this family to much that has been sleeping.  For asleep in some ways we all are, until the universe provides us with an experience that takes us beyond anything we ever knew.  It is precisely this kind of golden opportunity that awakens us to the true meaning of life.

This love has no name.  This love has no color.  This love has no place.  This love is infinite in nature and is that which has created the universe.  It is the Alpha and the Omega.  It is beyond time and space.  It is the origin of all, pure and natural and vibrating with a kind of joy that is found only in this unique and incredible kind of experience.

I am an open and loving being.  I love with all my heart and soul, and yet I am amazed and thrilled by the power of my love for this child.  I am humbled and  awakened.  I am filled with her embrace and anointed by her kiss.  I am lifted by her laughter and reborn through her beautiful eyes.

Yes, this is a miracle.  It is the miracle of love.  It is the kind of love that unifies and magnifies.  It is the kind of love that takes you beyond anything and everything you ever dreamed.  This is the love that we have forgotten.  This is the love that ends all separation.  This is the love that if each and every person upon this planet could feel, it would end all war.

I am thankful to be lifted by this love, to be guided by this love, and to be one with this love. I wish that the remembrance of this love would enter each and every heart for I know that only then, will the true meaning and feeling of oneness and peace ever return to earth.

More Than Enough

cac3d67c9080c78e51ad8ad97512d93f

I have been here before
I know this territory
it is bleak and dry and barren
I am alone
with my thoughts
and my fears
I toss and turn
on my bed of sorrows
all night long
the morning comes
and there is no reprieve
I am left with
nothing
but my will
and my faith
and it is more than enough
