The Heart of Love

Prayers, Poetry, Divine Inspiration by Gail Swanson


We Rise Together


Most of the time I feel as though I am not really completely here in this world. There are several reasons for this. One is due to the fact that no matter what I do I am never grounded. Once when a healer was attempting to ground me I felt as though I was being shocked over and over. He later told me he was given the information never to ground me but only to connect me to Venus. That should be a good enough reason to feel as though you don’t belong here and feel as though you are not completely here but there is another reason that intensifies this feeling even more.

I seem to have a foot in several worlds. One is beyond everything here and allows me to have all kinds of otherworldly experiences. The other is an illness that has been ever present for more years than I would like to remember. These are two very intense experiences going on at the same time.

The illness was the catalyst that forced me to leave my entire life behind and propel me into the world of healing. I learned many things in this new world. First I had to learn if I had the courage to make this journey. I was frightened and lost. I had no compass. I found that sometimes I had great courage and sometimes I had none. I continue this journey to this day and pass in and out of some very dark passages and also into places more beautiful than I ever could have imagined.

I have been given divine glimpses into the purpose of the physical illness and have been told the same exact thing by several mystics who I love and admire most in this world. I have been shown and told things that have been very challenging to understand and more challenging to live. I understand that nothing is what it seems.

Over these past months the challenges have been almost too much to bear. I write this today for those who are also feeling this way. The circumstances do not matter. Whatever we are going through in our own physical lives in many cases is being magnified as the world around us squeezes through the eye of the needle. We are being purged and sanctified.

It is a lonely journey. It is not for the faint of heart. Glimpses of heaven are beautiful and miraculous and still we must make it here through each day. Our faith is being tested as we bear witness to one heartbreaking event after the other. Where is it all heading? Some are so sure of the who what where and why. I am not so sure of anything except I must use everything I have to keep on keeping on.

The mysteries I have been shown about physical suffering go way beyond anything I could have ever imagined. When I lose my way I am reminded in ways that are impossible to ignore. I am living the mystery.

Here on earth I am a partner in life to the boy I made a vow to when I was nineteen. He is the embodiment of unconditional love. I am a mother and a grandmother. I am a mystic and a recluse. I suffer greatly in the physical in ways I never could have imagined and soar to the heavens in ways I never could have dreamed. Sometimes it feels like a blessing and a curse. When the mind tries to take me over I come back to what I know to be true. These are the days when the darkness upon this planet is doing all it can to take us down. These are the days we were made for.

Each time I find a way to rise again and again I think of all of you. I think of all we are all going through and remind myself that as lonely as this all feels we are not alone. There are legions of angels and loving beings here with us in every moment. We are going to make it. We rise together.

The Dream ~ The Message ~ The Animal Kingdom


The Dream

I had a dream that I was standing beside a huge body of water. It was not familiar to me. The whole dream was in a sepia sort of muddy color. There were other people there. As some of them were about to go into the water others yelled out “Don’t go in the water it is toxic.” As soon as that happened it seemed as if I could see way further than I should be able to. I could see way, way out into the water. And there I could see all these gigantic animals of all kinds swimming away in single file. The next thing I knew I was in the water in line with the animals swimming with the whales. And now a dolphin came up on my right side and turned on her back and looked as if she was smiling at me. She began to swim round and round me over and under my legs. At this point I woke up because my dog was crying to go outside.

This was one of those big dreams that you know are very important. The dream stayed with me. I knew there was a message. The next day I had an appointment with a new doctor I had only seen once. He was not very friendly and in fact was rather cold and stern. I was not feeling well at all and wishing I did not have to go but I had to be seen to renew my medication. I was so dizzy that my husband had to drive me and I was just feeling so annoyed that I had to see this doctor again and thinking that I will have to look for another doctor since he is definitely not for me.

I sat in the waiting room just hoping to get this all over with quickly when the doctor came walking out in his regular clothes. I was the only patient in the waiting room. He looked over at me and gave me a big smile and said hello. I was so taken back by his friendliness and his coming out to say hello I said jokingly “Am I going to have my appointment here in the waiting room?” He said “No.” Then he said “Do you like dogs”? I said “Yes I love dogs.” Then he said “Would you like to meet my dog”? I was thinking he must have just gotten a new puppy and brought the dog to work. Now he leaves the room and comes walking back out with the most beautiful Great Dane.

There is no way for me to describe what went on next. I bent down and this beautiful gigantic animal looked me in my eyes and it was like the whole room and the doctor just disappeared. I don’t know how long this went on but I never stopped talking to this amazing creature, telling him how happy I was to meet him and how beautiful he was. His name was Hudson. He never moved. He never broke our gaze. We fell instantly in love.

When the doctor finally tried to get Hudson to come with him he would not budge. He wanted to stay with me. So here I was dizzy and disoriented from the episode I was having that day and having this incredible experience. By the time I saw the doctor for my appointment we had both been changed. Something there is no explanation for had happened. I call it divine intervention.

My husband was waiting in the car unsure on how this second visit was going to go knowing I was so apprehensive about it. I gave a thumbs up as I walked towards the car. I got in and burst into tears. I said “You wont believe what happened. The dream of the gigantic animals manifested in the doctors office.”

What are the chances that you have a dream that all the gigantic animals on the planet are swimming together and the next day your previously unfriendly doctor introduces you to his dog and he is a gigantic Great Dane.

There is a second mini miracle concerning my health, this doctor and my medication. Let’s just say that everything that happened in my last visit completely turned around with this visit.

And so I came home and all the events were swirling in my head, the dream, the doctor, Hudson and the message. Some of the message is personal but some is meant to be shared.

The Message

The animals as they are so called here are calling out, reaching out from every realm. Their presence and size in the water as well as yours is significant. Huge beings from all over the planet swimming with their hearts in unity yet single file as to represent our unique individuality in what we do and why we are here. We work collectively and individually just as you do.

We called out to you in a dream yet the dream itself is a place of great power where many things are created and worked upon, worked out.

Our heads above water, bodies swimming with strength and courage and intention. A symphony of beings creating a sound, a tone in the uninhabitable waters. Each movement of our legs sending out a vibration and tone of healing and restoration. Your presence needed to add your own special vibration and your own knowing that we are one and belong together.

Once you were called upon as the manatee represented us all. (I once had two manatee come to me when I was swimming in the Gulf) You can read that story here. You joined us then and you join us now as you have always been one with the Animal Kingdom.

The color shall return to the dream when your world has moved into a place of love and compassion for all.

Our water parade was in honor of the two magnificents Tilikum and Granny (when I had this dream these two magnificent whales had just passed) who have ascended and shall be aiding in an even higher capacity than before.

Each animal has it’s own tone representing their unique individual name. The names given here by man have some aspect of the tone as to keep a certain harmonic resonance. This is of great importance. However the giving of the name in most cases is without deep thought and contemplation or revelation. So we must impress it upon those who are not awakened enough to do so. This is the same as the way a human is named.

The closest thing to earthy understanding of what the name for the Animal Kingdom is (I kept hearing the song They Call The Wind Mariah) Ma – Ri – A.

You are awakened to know and understand the connection between the dolphin, the manatee, the whales and the species named dog. He is so named not by accident for a body of water which is close to your heart and your home. (Hudson River)

The dolphin transmitted joy and playfulness to you even though you were immersed in toxic water. However you were among those you love. (they showed me the parallel of my life with what I deal with with my health but surrounded by my loved ones)

Hudson transmitted the love and power and beauty of the entire Kingdom through his eyes. All the Beloveds you have cared for and loved upon the earth lovingly present in the water and were also seen and felt through the eyes of Hudson.

Hudson is a Healer. An old soul. He came to fill the doctor with compassion for those who come to him suffering. You will continue to receive healing from Hudson through the doctor. You have been together before. The meeting was a reunion. The doctor was impressed to bring Hudson in so that this meeting would take place.

Another synchronicity – My daughter remembered that my mother lived on Hudson Avenue.

I was then given some personal information about my work with Cosmic Photography.

Bring forth the light being photographs.

We are all one.

We will aid you in your next step.

We imbue the photographs with our energies. They are for healing purposes and for the expansion of consciousness.

Those who need to be present to them shall be.

Open your heart there is more to come.

One of the last things they wanted to impress upon us is this.

Over coming fear increases spiritual power.

The overall message I was receiving as I was writing this transmission was, we must work together, overcome our fears of immersing ourselves into things we are afraid of and be aware of the power the diversity of the collective has when working as one. These are not new ideas of course but how beautiful that the animal kingdom is coming forward at this time to show us they are working with us and that dimensions are merging in an effort to create the unity we must have to not only survive but to flourish.

I am deeply grateful for this beautiful experience and for the message from the Ma – Ri – A. They wanted their message to be shared and I am honored to do so.

King Solomon – Signs Dreams and Synchronicities

King Solomon

King Solomon

King Solomon first came into my consciousness when I was in Brazil at the Casa of John of God.

“ John of God/Joao de Deus was a young teenager when he became a healer. Born to a family who rarely had enough to eat, he was clairvoyant as a boy. One day in his early teens, he went to a river to bathe and the spirit of a radiant woman—who later turned into a ball of light—told him to go to a nearby spiritual center. This spirit later became known to be St. Rita of Cassia – Brazil’s patron saint of miracles.  John followed her instructions, found the center, walked up the stairs, and knocked on the door—and that was the last thing he remembered till he came to, three hours later, to find a circle of people standing over him.

John immediately apologized and tried to reassure the people that he had probably fainted from hunger, and that he would be fine. They told him, “No, you don’t understand. You have been healing people for the last three hours.” Having no recall of such a thing, he had trouble believing it. But the next day several hundred people gathered, and the director of the center announced to them that the spirit of King Solomon was once again going to heal people as he had done the day before through the medium John.

Young John had no idea what the director was talking about, but as they began to pray, he slipped once more into a kind of faint, left his body, entered a warm light, and returned again several hours later to find that miraculous healings had once more happened through him.

Since that time, more than fifty years ago, John has been used by the Spirit—sometimes despite great adversity—to heal millions of people from such diverse maladies as cancer, HIV/AIDS, asthma, paralysis, psychological problems, and more. Not only does the spirit—or “entity,” as they say at Casa de Dom Inacio—of King Solomon use John’s body as a medium of healing, but so do more than thirty other compassionate entities who wish to continue serving humanity. These entities are the spirits of departed doctors, herbalists, chiropractors, and other healers, who have apparently chosen to continue helping the human population from the spirit realm.” Josie Ravenwing

While I was at the Casa I was very drawn to the images of King Solomon and often prayed in an area dedicated to him where you may place your prayers in a sacred triangle. His presence was very strong.

King Solomon Prayer Triangle

King Solomon Prayer Triangle

My friend Hillary Raimo is holding a global mediation event Love Breathe Earth on the second blood moon eclipse on October 8th. When Hillary mentioned she would be at the 911 site on 10/8 Feast of the Tabernacles I felt something strongly about this. I looked up Feast of the Tabernacles and found that King Solomon dedicated the temple and the Ark of the Covenant on The Feast of the Tabernacles.

I came home from the Casa recently with a prayer card with the image of King Solomon and water blessed by all the saints and entities of the Casa. A feeling came over me that this water should be added to the water that Hillary would be placing into the waters at the 911 memorial. I contacted her and she agreed to include the water with the essence of King Solomon.  Then following her intuition she immediately found this image of  Solomon’s Temple which matches the 911 memorial site.

There are  theories about this cycle of blood moons falling on religiously significant Jewish dates.

The first was April 15, 2014, the second day of Passover.

The second will come on October 8, 2014, during the Jewish Feast of the Tabernacles.

The third will come on April 5, 2015, during next year’s Passover celebration, and the fourth will arrive on September 28, 2015, another Feast of the Tabernacles, also known as Sukkot.

I have no idea what the meaning of it all is. I only know that when I feel something this strongly and then the signs and dreams and synchronicities fall into place I pay attention.

I spent two weeks at the Casa of John of God. I have been processing what I experienced there ever since.  There are ancient energies and connections that are coming up at this time. We are living them. There are beautiful beings that are with us, guiding us, helping us through this tumultuous time on earth. Somewhere deep inside we remember who we are and what we need to do.

We must follow our hearts. Follow the knowing.



Solomon’s Temple



911 Memorial

911 Memorial


When I saw the similarity in these two images I was astounded. I have a connection to the site myself as I worked in The World Trade Center for a time. You can read about it on my blog That night after Hillary and I talked and I saw these two images I had a dream where I had to do a great deal of difficult climbing to reach a place where there was an elevator. I was to go to the 8th floor. This is some of what I found concerning the number 8.

lasted eight days, with a special reference to the Incarnation (John 1:14).

also took place on the eighth day (inclusive reckoning) after the first announcement of Christ’s “sufferings,” and it was the showing forth of the “glory” which should follow at His coming again.

Eight is the first cubic number, the cube of two, 2 x 2 x 2. We have seen that three is the symbol of the firstplane figure, and that four is the first square. So here, in the first cube, we see something of transcendent perfection indicated, something, the length and breadth and height of which are equal. This significance of the cube is seen in the fact that the “Holy of Holies,” both in the Tabernacle and in the Temple, werecubes. In the Tabernacle it was a cube of 10 cubits. In the Temple it was a cube of 20 cubits. In Revelation 20 the New Jerusalem is to be a cube of 12,000 furlongs. Dr. Milo Mahan is inclined to believe that the Ark of Noah, too, had a kind of sacred Shechinah in “the window finished in a cubit above”-a cube of one. If so, we have the series of cubes:-
1 = The Ark 103 = 1,000, The Tabernacle 203 = 8,000, The Temple 12,0003 = 1,728,*000,000,000, the New Jerusalem* This 1728, too, is a remarkable number, viz., 82 x 33.

Not to mention this:

is the great truth which is signified. Christ rose from the dead on “the first day of the week,” that was of necessity the eighth day. And it is remarkable that the Bible contains the record of
Eight individual Resurrections
(other than the Lord and the saints):3 in the Old Testament
3 in the Gospels
2 in Acts 9 and 20
The three in the Old Testament correspond to the three raised by our Lord.
The son of a widow-
Zarepta (1 Kings 17:17-25) and
Nain (Luke 7:11-18).
The child of a rich person-
Son of the woman of Shunem (2 Kings 4:32-37),
A full grown man…after burial-
In Elisha’s tomb (2 Kings 13:20,21),
Lazarus (John 11).

The daughter of Jarius (Mark 5:35; Luke 8:49).

This is the image I have had on my Facebook timeline before this all came about. I had never seen this painting before.

At 6am on the morning of October 8th during the full blood moon eclipse I will be gathering with a small group on the sands of  the Gulf of Mexico. And there I will pour the blessed water imbued with the  love and healing of King Solomon and all the saints and entities of the Casa of John of God into the Gulf.




It is estimated that more than 70 Entities work through Medium Joao including St. Ignatius of Loyola (the founder of the Jesuit order), Dr. Oswaldo Cruz (credited with stopping the epidemics of bubonic plague and yellow fever in Brazil).  This fact alone can give us hope that we are being helped with the outbreak of Ebola.

And as I always do I look for the divine feminine in all. She is found here with King Solomon.

Sophia is the central pivot of creation and represents the feminine aspect in all things. She is Wisdom Incarnate, the Goddess of all those who are wise.

Sophia is found throughout the wisdom books of the Bible. There are references to Her in the book of Proverbs, and in the apocryphal books of Sirach and the Wisdom of Solomon.  Wisdom of Solomon, a book in the apocrypha says clearly that Sophia is the Holy Spirit.

Kings 4:29-31 tells us that God gave wisdom to Solomon, and that he became wiser than all the kings of the East and all the wise people of Egypt. Wisdom 8:2, 16, 18 tells us Solomon was considered to be married to Sophia. One of the many layers of symbolism attributed to the Song of Songs (also known as Song of Solomon or Canticle of Canticles) is that it speaks of Solomon’s marriage to Holy Sophia. The apocryphal Wisdom of Solomon (9:8-11) says that the Divine Sophia instructed the king in how to construct the Temple of Jerusalem. In her honor, Solomon erected in the inner sanctum a sacred tree, symbol of the Canaanite goddess Asteroth.

Mary Magdalene is considered to be an incarnation of Sophia. I follow the signs and the guidance of the beloved ones.


There is so much more to this story concerning my experiences at the Casa of John of God. I tell this part as I know it is important that as many of us as possible come together in prayer and belief. There is not only a purpose to the waters of fear and sorrow and love and healing coming together but there is a connection I believe as you can see to the Temple of Solomon and the 911 Memorial.

At 1pm on October 8th I will join with Hillary Raimo in spirit as she joins with people from around the world in prayer for the earth and her inhabitants as she symbolically pours the healing waters into a place of such sorrow and heartbreak at the 911 Memorial.  The blessed John of God water will be added to the special water Hillary has that has been lovingly prayed over. The sample will be sent to Dr. Emoto’s lab to be photographed.


I hope you will join us.



With love,  Gail
