The Message

As I lay awake early this morning I could hear some words being spoken as if far away.
I thought I must try to listen and as I did I heard these words perfectly.
 
Peace of God …..During this time.
 
And then I found what I wrote on this day years ago.
 
Blessed are those who resurrect their hearts
Blessed are those who begin again
Blessed are those who are filled with compassion
Blessed are those who truly forgive
Blessed are those whose faith is transcending
all of their worries and all of their fears
Blessed are those who strive to remember
the Divine Light shining within
Blessed are those who aid the less fortunate
Blessed are those who live in peace
Blessed are those who carry a burden
resurrecting themselves again and again
Blessed are those who carry the light
of Christ and Magdalene deep within
Blessed are we as we carry the torch
Blessed are we
Amen Amen

A Summer Solstice Story

IMG_0015.JPG

I was asked to read a prayer at our annual Summer Solstice Ceremony on the beach. I have many beautiful prayers written over the years and I am always open to receive a new one if it is meant for a certain time. I have learned that I will be guided to what is to be spoken even down to the last minute. This is what happened for the Solstice. I was guided to read, not a prayer, but a message from Magdalene and right before I left for the ceremony I was guided to a message from Joan of Arc. I realize now these messages are truly divine prayers.

The morning of the ceremony I received a phone call from my childhood friend’s sister asking me if I received something she had sent me and telling me her sister was now in hospice. She told me that her sister had been going through her things and came across something she wanted me to have. I never received it. It was an etching of the name of our friend from the Viet Nam memorial wall and I assume a note to tell me that the end was near.

I made my way to the ceremony feeling upset and unsettled. I prayed and prayed for my friend and her family all through the ceremony. A strong feeling came over me that she would leave today on the glory of the Summer Solstice. I still felt terribly unsettled. Now my name was called and it was time for me to stand and speak the words that were so divinely given. I stood in the Solstice circle. As I spoke these words they vibrated into every cell of my being. I began to feel two things together – peace and strength. I felt the truth and the power in every word. I felt stronger and stronger. I felt them – Magdalene and Joan of Arc and everyone else did too.

I spoke the final word and I heard “Gail look up.”! I looked up and there above me was an enormous circle of birds swirling and swirling. I had never seen anything like it and I felt the power and the love the birds were sending go right through me.

I knew she was home in the arms of the angels.

When I got home my husband told me she passed.

I realized later that I had seen her mother and father and our friend Billy and another friend come for her. The etching she was sending to me was Billy’s.

Godspeed Kathy.

Heaven rejoices at your homecoming.

Your brave and loving mission here is done.

Defend the Sacred

As we pray and create ceremony for the Water Protectors at Standing Rock and as heartbreaking as this is, there is something beautiful taking place. I have been feeling it through my own tears.

Tribes and people from all walks of life from all over the nation are coming together in love and power uniting as one. This unity is creating a force field of love, compassion and oneness that is affecting all. In the midst of crisis and upheaval there is always something happening at the highest level.

An ancestral soul healing is taking place even in the midst of this brutal and disrespectful act.

We continue to come together through the heart of love and rise up as a people who are awake and working tirelessly for the conscious awakening of our world and her people.

May the power of love, prayer and oneness reign down upon this planet and heal the separation that continues to cause such pain and sorrow.

May love, peace and unity prevail.

Look Within

1085551289-Look-within

The distractions of the world are designed to keep you from looking within. The violence of the world is created to keep you in fear. The injustices of the world exist to keep you dissatisfied and all is combined to numb you and keep you in an unnatural state.

What if we were able to remember this through it all. What if we were able to live in our hearts not to pretend that the world does not exist but to be able to truly know that we are here to be the acupuncture points of love on the planet.

It is getting harder and harder.

What if we made it our top priority to get to the point where it becomes easier and easier no matter what comes, easier to remember our own true nature, easier to live in the light of Christ Consciousness. And staying awake, so awake that we are constantly going within to root out what truly lives within ourselves in our own lives.

In what ways do we contribute in any way to what takes place on the outside? Who do we judge? Where are we dissatisfied? What triggers our own anger? What fuels our own distraction?

I am looking within. We are all living in human bodies come to be the light and balance in a world gone mad.

We are needed now more than ever.

Breathe
Stay connected to nature
Pray
Call on the Beloveds
Sing and dance and paint
Do all it takes to keep your heart open
Love everyone around you

Look at those in your life who you have a difficult time being around. Think of every small thing in your life as the microcosm of the macro because it is. Rededicate yourself to this endeavor.

Look within.

We must do it in our own individual lives to raise the consciousness of tolerance and peace and unity.

It matters not how much work we have done or how far we think we have come. We are all being triggered in huge ways by the escalating events on the planet. Timelines are merging. Past lives are as if they are happening as we bare witness to the never ending atrocities.

I have been made to see where in my own life these seemingly small issues are contributing to anything that is not of the highest vibration. It is like a punch in the stomach. Time to get real. Time to wake up. Time to pray for the clarity and the courage to look within. We have talked about this inner work forever and we have done much but we are at a crucial crossroads and we must begin anew.

May we raise ourselves and dedicate ourselves to creating peace in our lives and upon the earth. May those who suffer find comfort as we breathe ourselves into our highest place of love.

May I reside in a state of grace
may I love myself
and acknowledge my beauty
may I speak from the heart
and create an exchange
of loving intention
in all that I do
may I open to remember
my soul’s true purpose
may I raise my vibration
through the breath of the holy spirit
may I know I am blessed
and deserving of abundance
may I cower not
in the face of my power
may my thoughts and actions
create peace on the planet
and may I transcend
and illuminate all

Fire Goddess

This powerful and symbolic image was sent to me a few days ago. I thought it was so appropriate for the Spring Equinox but I was waiting for permission to post it. Now I see why it was meant for today.

Today we wake to yet another tragic event. Today we are reminded yet again of what human beings are capable of.

As it becomes harder and harder to believe we are going to rise from this time of chaos and violence we grow stronger and more determined to remember who we are.

We are the women warriors. We are warriors of love. We are on fire with the birth of freedom and the devotion to reclaim all that has been lost.

The divine feminine continues to rise in every way imaginable. She will not surrender. She will not be driven under. She will continue to rise on the breath of every woman on the planet. She will create peace moment by moment. She will turn her head from war and injustice and raise her head towards balance and wisdom and sovereignty.

She will continue to rise.

She will breathe the fire of truth.

She will sing the song of remembrance.

She is the mother bestowing her blessing on the land and her people.

She is the living waters of life and the fire rising from the ashes of the past.

She is burning and birthing.

Do not underestimate her power.

We the women are awake.

We the women stand together.

We the women are a circle of power.

Brutality and war can not stop her from rising.

SHE is the ALL

 

This was the Spring Equinox Message I sent out and it is exactly what I would have chosen today.   It is from my book  The Heart of Love : Mary Magdalene Speaks

Birgitte Fiche and Peter Christiansen

 The power of the natural balance of the masculine and feminine is a power most mighty and a most sacred healing balm.

All that lies beneath the destruction of this most natural state is beautiful and born of heaven.

How shall the balance be restored?

When the divine feminine connects to the stars and heaven and breathes the remembrance into her physical body on earth, this shall create a power reborn.

When the masculine connects in this way, igniting his own divine feminine and heavenly qualities, he may then acknowledge this sweetness and grace with loving acceptance and one shall see the sweetness in another and another.

In the living sanctuary of your heart, all that has been suppressed, all that has been wounded, all that cries out for love, is now ready to be uncovered and released.

I understand your feeling that the process is never ending but this I am afraid is the process upon the earth.

Your choice to be the shining stars in the face of such anguish illuminates in ways you shall never know.

Allow yourselves to open now in ways you have not allowed for in this allowance fear shall be shattered and love and peace shall reign.

And as you embrace these ancient ways and call out the names of all who adore you, the luminous fibers of your heavenly being shall illuminate and connect with your heavenly home.

Continue to call upon the memory of love.

Hold fast in your desire for truth.

Seek only the truth within.

For there you shall find….your own sacred heart.

 

May love and peace prevail everywhere ….

With Love,

Gail

The Journey

 

12744530_977328695692774_2378199328059850493_n

open to the journey without expectation
knowing all will be given
open to the letting go
fearing nothing
knowing all will be released
embrace the new
and honor the old
as the world continues to turn

breathe in the sun
and swallow the moon
dance with the stars in heaven
for each world and every dimension
joins you in your ascension
breathing all forces into your heart
and whispering dreams of encouragement

live this life in truth and integrity
for it effects all others
be one with nature
and one another
be one with all aspects of your being

proclaim each day
a day lived with love
and a faith that grows ever strong
omit nothing, allowing everything
dream and trust in the answer

that all is as it should be
each twist and each turn
each joy and every sorrow
each hurt and anger turned to love
each heartache that births compassion

yes all these things
and yes all you see
and all that you only imagine
feel it all
and live it well
consecrate all unto heaven

bow your head
and receive each blessing
and raise your voice in praise
for the conscious awakening
destined to be
a world merging heaven and earth

for each blade of grass
and each droplet of water
that partners and springs forth new life
you are as these
at one with all
nourishing your world
if you choose

and as you honor
and as you trust
as the world continues to turn
hearts shall mend
and love shall rekindle
in souls who believe in magic

for wonders alight
in heaven and on earth
and the sound of rejoicing
shall vibrate
into the hearts of each man and each woman
and into the eyes of each child

and the earth shall emerge
as never before
and her people shall live in peace

if you dare to dream
and you dare to live
by love, by truth
and by light

for the light of love dwells in each heart
and loving compassion illuminates
and powers this light as you make it your own
your light
your world
your heaven

Vessel of Love

0023406-0022grail0022-400022x300022-vaclav-vaca-00a91987-version-4

On this 2016 New Years Day and always…

May I be a vessel of love
breathing in stars
and my ancient birthright
may I be a shining light
for those who wander and feel alone
may the flame of truth that dwells in my heart
spread like a wildfire
awakening the many
may the cosmic energies
reigning down upon us
open our hearts
and unite our world
May Love and Peace Prevail

Trip to John of God – The Sisterhood

Cauldron_of_Inspiration

Tomorrow I am leaving on a 2 week trip to Brazil to see John of God.  I will be posting about it here.

The Sisterhood

As I prepare for this journey of the heart and soul I have been surrounded and lifted by my sacred sisters. As I walk this path I do not walk alone. I can feel the love pouring into me from my closest friends and from sisters far and wide. I have received emails with the most beautiful loving wishes. I have received sacred artwork, music, hugs and kisses, gifts and a gathering of my nearest and dearest to see me off. And I have received much more, something so beautiful has awakened in me. It is the true remembrance of the Sisterhood.

I can feel the beautiful souls throughout all time surrounding me, nurturing me, loving me, singing the ancient song of the feminine divine. This is a loving power that can change everything. This is a beauty that is rooted in love and wisdom and oneness. For many reasons we have forgotten this incredible bond, this lifting of hearts, this truth loving, this singing to one another our powerful womb song.

When we are not remembering we are judging one another and hurting one another or simply not seeing one another. But there are some who remember and their love is so bright and their beauty so magnificent it is transforming the world. I know this is true. These women live by the heart. These women live by the soul. They are one with the earth and with one another.

I have been having a revelation these past few days as this incredible feminine energy has washed over me, filled me and lifted me. This Sisterhood will save the planet. This Sisterhood is saving each other one woman at a time because your sister is you and you are your sister.

When you encounter a soul sister who is awakened to her true self a new part of your own self is awakened and bit by bit we continue to awaken to all we are and ever have been and all we need to remember.

Today I bow deeply and I give thanks to all the shining, courageous, loving sisters who continue on the path of truth and sing the song of the feminine divine. The sisters who remember who we were and who we are meant to be, to carry this world out of it’s darkness and back into the light of holiness and oneness, unity and peace.

I thank you for lifting me time and again, for reminding me over and over who I am and why I am here and most of all for love. For the love of the divine feminine is exquisite and sacred and is awakening like never before.

I thank God for it.

I Am The Light of Love

1426515_544893355602979_276135500_n

I am the light of love
I am the memory of all that is love
my hands were made to comfort and heal
my eyes were made to see through illusion
my voice was given to speak only truth
my heart beats only through love’s consolation
I am the light of love
born to shine like the morning sun
born to give and receive true love
born to express my true divine nature
to live and breathe the memory of one
one heart, one world, one heaven created
I am the light of love
may love and peace prevail
