One Day I walked into the kitchen where my mother was standing and said, “I want to go home.” She shook her head, confused. “What do you mean? You are home.” I repeated my solemn statement. “I want to go home.” I didn’t know what I meant any more than she did. All I knew was that the feeling had returned and was growing stronger — the feeling of emptiness, longing, and hunger. Something was calling to me. And the only words I could find to describe it were, I want to go Home.”

Hidden Blessings

Often we are not aware the Hand of God has reached into our lives to bless, guide, or protect us. When we do recognize these gifts of love our gratitude and appreciation grows, which opens our heart even further to God’s Love.

I was working on the computer the other week downloading files. As they were rather large files it took some time to download. In between keystrokes I began to contemplate on the miracles of God and God’s blessings. I was sitting there quietly with no agenda, just thinking on the magnificence of God’s Grace. Suddenly I received a tremendous download of love that touched my being in so many ways. A wonderful volume of love poured into me, a gift so precious. Thanking God’s Prophet for this wonderful gift I thought about all the blessings that I receive from God through God’s Prophet. Over the years I have come to discover everything in my life is a gift from God. Sitting there in the office I felt so much love, gratitude, and appreciation. My cup most certainly runneth over.

This started me thinking about the love and gratitude I have for all the gifts I recognize in my life. My family, home, friends, and the gift to see God’s Love manifest in my life in so many ways. My contemplation then shifted as a new thought entered my consciousness. I considered the gifts of love God brings to me that I do not recognize. Then I was reminded of an experience I had several weeks previously. I was working on a job out on the ocean near New England. The ocean weather in the winter can become quite rough and unpredictable. We could only work a few days at a time before a storm would blow through, requiring us to leave our work site and avoid the worst of the weather in a safe harbor. The hundred foot boat we were on was well maintained and the crew very professional. When the weather forecast called a “Small Craft Advisory” we knew to pay attention and run to shelter. This particular time a storm was developing so we moved the vessel to the harbor and set anchor. The wind kept increasing throughout the day and by nightfall we had sustained winds of fifty to sixty miles per hour and gusts over seventy miles per hour. We were still safe. The crew kept a steady watch on our situation and the weather. They had to reset the anchors several times as the wind would push the boat causing the anchors to drag on the bottom.

Going to bed I could feel the wind shifting the boat as it bobbed and rolled against the anchor and chain. Curling up in my sleeping bag I was warm and comfortable, grateful that it was so. I slept well that night. Awakening the next morning I greeted the crew in the galley. They proceeded to tell me that during the night they had recorded a wind speed of over one hundred and four miles per hour. I immediately saw the magnitude of this event, and felt like I had been part of a miracle. My heart turned to God to give thanks for the incredible protection and for keeping us all safe. To put this in perspective a Category One hurricane has sustained winds of at least seventy four miles per hour. Speeds as high as eighty nine miles per hour were recorded when Hurricane Sandy moved through the Garden State. Hurricane Katrina made its second landfall as a Category Three hurricane with sustained winds of one hundred and twenty miles per hour in Louisiana. The winds we experienced were not sustained and would not be considered a hurricane, but the number of things that could have happened to our little vessel boggles the imagination. Yet there we were, sipping coffee in the morning as if nothing happened. We were safe and secure as if we were being held in God’s Hand. The storm had passed and the morning sky was amazing.

Sitting in my office in front of the computer again safe and warm, I wondered about the countless times God protected me, kept me and my loved ones safe from harm, steered me in the right direction at just the right time, and put the right conditions in front of me to answer the prayers of my heart. All those times and I was not aware of any of it. I can, however, try my best to be more aware of and grateful for the blessings I do recognize, to be more aware of God’s Presence throughout the day, and demonstrate gratitude and appreciation for God truly keeping me safe in the palm of His Hand.

Reassurance Just When I Needed It

Tags

, , , , ,

One of the greatest blessings is when we receive clarity on a major decision we are trying to make. Spirit can use anything in our life to help deliver this clarity to us. It can also give us the courage to follow our heart and act on the guidance we receive.

It was a difficult decision to move on after twenty-two years in a relationship. For quite some time I had been on the fence about my decision and the indecision was wearing me out, along with the relationship itself. I did not have the energy and courage to follow through. The inner and outer guidance I was getting indicated it was time, or past time, to make the decision and move on. That got my attention, but distractions seemed to keep popping up to delay my taking action.

I decided it would be important for me to attend the May weekend spiritual retreat at the Nature Awareness School. Prophet provided very helpful clarity and input that weekend, thank you! Nearing the Virginia border on my drive back to Asheville, North Carolina, I thought I heard an alarm clock going off. I closed the car windows and the sound stopped. Well, a few minutes later this whole scenario repeated itself. Again, I closed the windows and the sound stopped. I tried to reach around in the car for where my alarm clock might be, but I could not find it. Normally my travel alarm clock would eventually stop beeping and stop for good. I knew it wasn’t the alarm clock because the sequence continued most all the way back to Asheville, and it seemed like a sign.

When I crossed over into Tennessee there was a huge sign saying, “Change is coming. Experience history in August.” I had strong inner guidance it would be important to begin getting my things in order. When I got home I had some serious talks with my significant other, although I did not yet have the courage to tell him I wanted to leave. I prayed for assistance from Prophet to find my inner strength and courage.

In June I was again at the school and developing inner strength and courage was one of the areas we focused on during the eight-day retreat. Around that time a movie had come out called “We Bought a Zoo,” and one of the pearls shared at the retreat was how the main character only needed twenty seconds of courage to take an important action, which he did, and it changed his life. During the last evening of the retreat our area of Virginia experienced a unique storm, a derecho. We stood outside watching the sky as it sounded like a freight train roaring up the side of the mountain, although the trees did not seem to be moving. The sky was spectacular and looked like a July 4th celebration. During this amazing storm I felt strength in the presence of the Prophet and found a depth of inner strength and courage I had not known before. I was finally at peace. I knew what I needed to do as Soul. It felt like the Divine had done most of the heavy lifting to give me the strength and courage to follow my heart, now I had to do my part!

When I returned home to North Carolina I continued to receive a lot of support and guidance on the outer and inner. A friend suggested I write a letter to my significant other to say what I would want to say, without giving it to him. This would help me focus on what I would want to say in person. I found the suggestion very helpful. In my heart I knew this suggestion, that came through my friend, was from the inner Prophet. As Soul I was getting a deep inner call to make this change, and if I did not heed it I felt I would start dying inside. It was important to me to make this change with love, rather than getting into blame and anger.

The following week while I was at work, I saw a U-Haul truck go by with a huge picture of an Indian woman on the side of it. I ran outside and saw the name of Sacajawea written on the side. This was an awake dream to me because I have a close affinity with that name. During the next few days I researched prices for a U-Haul truck rental to move to Virginia. By the end of the week I had the inner knowingness that it was time. Holding the hand of the inner Prophet I took a deep breath and received the first twenty seconds of courage, and then the next, and the next. I had a long talk and interaction with my significant other. I was able to share with him what I really wanted to convey from a place of love. He and I talked and talked, and cried together. That night was really tough, and I slept restlessly.

As I headed to work the next morning I had doubts as to whether I was making the right decision. I started singing HU, a love song to God, and asked for assistance from Prophet. Rounding the corner into the parking lot at work, lo and behold there was a U-Haul truck sitting smack dab in front of my office. And in big letters on the side it said “VIRGINIA.” It was the perfect reassurance I needed at that moment! God’s timing is always perfect, impeccable. Thank you dear God and Prophet for your reassurance, comfort, love, and guidance. I appreciate and love you.

What a gift to see a loved one again after they have passed on from the physical. It matters not if human or animal because love is love. Either way it is a joyous reunion and special blessing.

For about thirteen years I had a pet black Labrador Retriever named Callie. I adopted her when she was six weeks old, and she was with me until she passed in 1998 of declining health and old age. I have no children, so she really was almost like a daughter to me. I loved her dearly and felt very sad for a long time after she died.

I am blessed to have had several dreams with her. In one of the dreams she was a puppy, and I was taking her for a ride in a basket that was attached to the handlebars of the bicycle I was riding. She was happy and healthy, and we were having so much fun together! In the dream, I could feel the wind blowing on me as I rode the bicycle. I could also feel the love I have for her and the love she has for me. It was a beautiful experience. I had a dream about Callie this year, many long years since she passed. In this dream she was a little older. We were having a happy, playful, loving time together. I was petting her and she was “dancing” around me, wagging her tail in delight.

These dreams, these gifts of love from the Divine, warmed my heart and brought back fond memories of our time together. The dreams are such a blessing to me. I know these dreams are real! Animals are soul too. The dreams about Callie reassured me that she is still alive and happy in the other worlds. The love we have for our loved ones, including our pets, and the love they have for us lives on after they have passed. I am deeply grateful to the Divine for these beautiful personal gifts of love.

Simply Profound

God’s expresses His Love to His children daily in countless ways. No matter what shape or size God’s Love takes, there is nothing “small” about it. The recognition of God’s Love in your life brings a profound sense of peace and comfort.

Excerpt from “Testimonies of God’s Love – Book 4”

Several years ago an extended visit to Sedona, Arizona was suggested to me by my spiritual teacher Prophet Del Hall. This visit was to help me get through a particularly confusing and troubling time in my life. Del’s suggestion helped me through my confusion and literally saved and changed my life. It was a journey of love and self-discovery, filled with adventure, Divine experiences, and personal lessons of love; all orchestrated by the Prophet.

Arriving in Sedona my destination was a small cottage owned by a couple, Tom and Jean, who warmly welcomed me to my new home. During a friendly conversation several days after my arrival, Jean recommended an Italian Restaurant for dinner that evening. She heard the restaurant received excellent reviews, but she was unable to give specifics, just a name and general idea of its location. Around dinnertime that evening, lonely for home, family and friends I took a drive to explore the area and also look for the Italian restaurant Jean had suggested earlier that day. Singing HU, a love song to God as I drove, I asked the Prophet for help and guidance in finding the restaurant using the vague directions from Jean, but had no luck. Feeling discouraged I pulled into a parking lot to re-group. I looked up at the building I had parked in front of to discover I had parked directly in front of the Italian Restaurant I had been searching for!

Sitting in front of the restaurant crying tears of joy, an incredible peace enveloped me. Because of this personal and simple yet profound experience, I knew with absolutely no doubt the Prophet was there with me, responding with love by answering my prayer and guiding me to the restaurant.

For the duration of my stay in Sedona, away from my home, family, and friends, I never again experienced loneliness. The Prophet was with me and I was blessed everyday with his love and guidance. When I was in need of conversation the Prophet fulfilled that need, sending people my way to offer stimulating conversation. On two separate occasions these conversations lasted for over an hour and were beautiful, amazing conversations. When thoughts turned to my dogs at home; missing their loving companionship, the Prophet sent me a dog, a beautiful yellow lab to sit with me, silently offering love and companionship until his owners called him away. When I was in search of entertainment for the long evenings, Prophet guided me to a local thrift store where I found several excellent books that were on my list to read. These beautiful experiences are just a few of the many I was blessed with during my stay in Sedona.

These experiences could be labeled as mere coincidences, but I know better. The Prophet’s greatest gift to me during this confusing time in my life was these personal and simple, yet profound, experiences that are sacred and remain forever in my heart. They revealed to me how much the Prophet truly loves me, hears my prayers, and is with me always. So, the next time you find yourself labeling a personal and simple yet profound experience as mere “coincidence,” look deeper as I have, and know God’s Love is shining on you and is with you always.

My Spiritual Pantry

Tags

, , , , ,

Just as your physical body needs physical food, your true spiritual self, Soul, needs spiritual food. Without daily spiritual nourishment you will wither. Yes, you may be alive, but this does not mean you truly have life.

Excerpt from “Testimonies of God’s Love – Book 4”

It was the Sunday after Christmas 2015; I was drinking a delicious cup of coffee and just enjoying a day off from work. After doing some household chores I noticed I was very hungry. I was looking for something to eat and couldn’t find anything until I looked in my fridge. There I found leftovers from Christmas dinner at my daughter’s house that my son-in-law so kindly packed up for me to take home. I had forgotten they were there and quickly proceeded to fry up some of the ham to make the most awesome ham and egg “Dagwood” sandwich. Barely getting my mouth around the huge sandwich, I thought of how useless my food pantry is if the food is forgotten and not used. I could starve while having a fully stocked pantry of unused food.

This immediately reminded me of a major spiritual lesson I learned from Del, my spiritual teacher at the Nature Awareness School. Del talked about our spiritual pantry, comparing it to a food pantry. A spiritual pantry is full of spiritual tools available to use to stay spiritually nourished. Tools such as singing HU, a love song to God, reading of scriptures, our journals full of recorded dreams and class experiences, and more to be used for our daily “spiritual bread.” Soul needs nourishment just as the physical body needs food. As I was enjoying my sandwich I began to remember all the food dreams I have been given by Prophet to show me how I had been starving spiritually. That is when I made the connection about forgetting the food in the fridge, my food pantry, and how it parallels my lesson about my spiritual pantry. Using the tools in my spiritual pantry daily uplifts and raises the bar for all my physical life experiences. The main reason for this is that staying spiritually nourished helps us recognize God’s blessings in our life and the presence of Prophet who is always with us.

Jesus said it much better in the Bible after he had been fasting in the wilderness for forty days and forty nights: “And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:3-4 KJV This quote from the Bible shows us just how important spiritual nourishment is for us. If we stay nourished spiritually we can begin to enjoy the abundant life we were meant to live.

Prayers of Our Heart

God blesses us with the insights to live a life with less regret, but won’t force us to follow the guidance. It’s up to us to implement it and to do it in a timely manner. This story also shows how a loving God can provide another chance at a missed opportunity.

Excerpt from “Testimonies of God’s Love – Book 4”

My father’s health had been declining and within a short time period was failing rapidly. I had been in contact with him a few days prior and during that time his lucidness and comprehension of the current date and time were off. Also, he was not being an easy patient to take care of for his wife, my stepmom. My father had been challenged through life with some mental instability and depression. From my view his day-to-day life was filled with fear and worry. His first marriage to my mother was not filled with much peace or love that I could see. I did see that in his current marriage there was love and happiness, but due to his mental challenges those times were fleeting. Worry and fear were more constant companions, from my experience and observation. I feel true happiness and the experience of joy were never really known by him. I held a prayer in my heart from an early age that my father would have love in his life, and as I got older the prayer also included the wish for him to experience peace and joy.

I lived five hours away so the phone was our primary line of communication. I had a nudge one night to call, but it was late and I was tired so I decided to call the next day. I had been taught by my teacher, the Prophet, about the importance of following our nudges within the window of time we receive them because they are communication from the Divine. In this case I did not listen. When I called the next day and talked to my stepmom, I found out they had sedated him and were continuing to do so for his safety and comfort. He was now in hospice care, and I recognized I had most likely lost the opportunity to speak with him one last time. I wanted to tell him I loved him, and God loved him. I wanted to assure and comfort him about the transition of life he was going through, and tell him there was nothing to fear. In addition, I was holding a little guilt about the last conversation with him; I had not been as kind with him as I could have been and wanted to apologize.

I have been taught and know to be true, we are never alone; Prophet is always with us. After I got off the phone I immediately went to Prophet on the inner and apologized for not following my nudge to call the night before. I said a prayer of gratitude for his love and his care of my dad and stepmom as they were going through this challenge. I was singing HU, a love song to God, and immediately found myself spiritually in a room with my father who was resting comfortably in a bed and was fine. There were other Souls present, some I recognized as family members who had passed on and others I did not know, but their presence was comforting, and there was gentle light in the room.

My dad saw me and his face lit up; with me was Prophet, another spiritual teacher, and Jesus. He looked at me and said, “You know Jesus?” I said, “I did” and introduced Prophet and the other teacher to him. They greeted my dad and then left us to visit together. I had the opportunity to say the things I had wished to say and to hold his hand. After some time had passed it was time for me to go. I knew without a doubt my dad was being cared for and comforted, and we had our chance to say the things in our hearts. Even though his physical body was dying, he as Soul was alive and well. We were both gifted with the prayers in our hearts being answered. We both had one more opportunity to express love and caring to each other. What a huge gift to us both.

Within the week he passed on. Through the experience of my dad’s passing, I will testify that the transition of leaving one’s physical body when dying can be a comfortable and peaceful one. I was at a class at the Nature Awareness School when my dad passed. The night before his passing, in contemplation, I saw my dad in a wheelchair being pushed by Prophet and the other spiritual teacher. My dad had a warm blue blanket wrapped around him. He waved and smiled, and I could feel he was at peace and happy. The color blue and the blanket indicated to me Prophet was caring for him during this transition. The color blue is a color Prophet uses as an indication of his presence.

The next morning a friend at class shared she had a dream about a man in a wheelchair being wheeled onto a cruise ship, and she could hear his laughter. I knew that was my dad she saw, and he was being gifted with a joyful experience. You might wonder why she had that dream and not me. She is a dear friend and Prophet gave her the dream to validate my experiences in case I had any seeds of doubt. The Prophet is with all of us. He hears the prayers of our heart, and my prayer for my dad was for him to experience peace and joy. Through my relationship with Prophet and in singing HU, I have been gifted with multiple blessings. From these inner experiences I know that we are loved, cared for, and the prayers of our hearts are answered in God’s time. They are gifts of His Grace.

Gratitude Transformed My Day

Tags

, , , , ,

If you feel your heart closing for any reason, making the conscious choice to take a moment, sing HU, and focus on gratitude can help open it back up. This is no small thing. Your day will be fundamentally different if your heart is open versus closed. God speaks to and delivers His blessings to an open heart.

One recent morning I made a special effort to get out of the house early. I planned to stop at a large home improvement center on the way to work. I love to walk the long aisles of lumber and hardware, happily imagining all the things I could build with them. I see not just stacks of lumber, but future sheds and snug homes for my animals. I also see other projects to enrich the lives of my wife Diane and me. My intention that morning was to check out aluminum fascia and soffit for a project I had in mind. I had about fifteen minutes or so to spend in the store.

I was greeted by a friendly store employee who directed me to the aisle where he thought I would find the aluminum soffit and fascia. There I found the same products in vinyl but not aluminum. I spent about ten minutes fruitlessly searching for either the aluminum or someone else to help me. I was aware time was running out and felt some irritation creep in, it was about time to go on to work. On the way out I encountered the same helpful man who had originally sent me to the wrong location. He still wanted to help. Although skeptical, I decided to give it one more try. I followed him to another location where he thought we might find the aluminum. It was not there either, but we did encounter another employee who informed us the aluminum I sought was only available by special order. I thanked the first man who had twice tried to help me, wished him a good day, and left for work. I knew it would be tight, time-wise.

As I drove to work I was aware that I was a little irritated over the lost time. I did not want to arrive at the school where I work under the influence of irritation. I chose to sing HU, a love song to God, to improve my mood and perspective. I also played a CD of a large group of students singing HU at the Nature Awareness School. At the beginning of the CD Del Hall, God’s Prophet, suggests we think of something for which we are grateful. This would open our hearts to better express our love for God when singing HU. He reminds us “Gratitude is the secret of love.” Del has taught me to sing HU and practice gratitude. He has shown me to see and appreciate how these and other spiritual teachings transform lives. My life is richer and happier for it.

Hearing the physical voice of Prophet, God’s distributor of blessings and grace, triggered a wave of gratitude for the countless blessings in my life. Hearing HU opened my heart more and more as the song continued. Each remembered blessing was connected to still more blessings. I thought of my growing love and appreciation for Prophet. I savored the love of my family, friends, and pets. I was on my way to my new job. The job is literally an answer to a prayer to work in just that school. I gratefully considered the attitude of gratitude that sweetens my life. Gratitude transforms day, upon day, upon day; a result and gift from Del’s teachings. So Del’s seemingly simple, yet very profound, suggestion to think of something I was grateful for released a cascade of remembered blessings. My earlier irritation was gone. I felt a sense of joy and gratitude for the day I was about to experience. I could not wait to get to school and see the kids and teachers.

Blessings were everywhere I looked. As I drove I saw more clearly the beauty of nearby farms and distant mountains. I took notice of the horses and cows in the pastures and the mist on the hazy mountains. I actually arrived at school a few minutes early since I sailed through several intersections on green lights, something else to be grateful for. I gave further thanks for my relocation to Virginia. I arrived at work with a lighter step and a smile on my face. Gratitude made a profound difference in my interactions with others that day. Through the attitude of gratitude I experienced each moment as a gift to be savored. I saw each person I encountered as a fellow Soul on their own life adventure. A few moments of gratitude transformed my whole day. This ongoing gift of living with a sense of gratitude is changing my entire life. Gratitude allows me to see God’s blessings more clearly and for what they are, gifts from our loving Heavenly Father. I know I am blessed with a life of lasting abundance.

Another Moment Together

Many have longed for another moment with a loved one who has passed on. They look forward to the day when they are reunited in Heaven. Please know you can visit with your loved ones now in dreams and spiritual contemplations. These experiences are just as real; do not discount them.

On a beautiful summer morning during a weeklong class at the Nature Awareness School I was given a very short dream. During it my spiritual teacher, Del Hall, asked me, “Did you get to see your dad?” He was referring to the experiences we had during a HU Sing in class the night before. At that very moment I remembered seeing a glimpse of my dad towards the very end of the HU Sing that I had forgotten. I wrote it in my journal and thanked Prophet for this gift of remembrance.

Later that morning as I closed my eyes in appreciation, I wished my dad well. I knew Prophet’s presence was with me, and I could feel his love in a warm breeze. As I did my dad spiritually appeared right in front of me! I hugged him and felt his bony shoulder as I leaned my head on it. I miss him so much. My eyes watered as they are watering now, reliving this gift. Wow! I got to spend a few moments with my dad who passed away a few years back. God gave me this tailor-made experience through His chosen Prophet. Prophet loves me and knows me so well. You too can be blessed with such precious moments.

More Freedom Less Worry

When we are overly attached to the decisions our loved ones make it becomes harder to love them purely. They are a child of God first and as such they will never be on their own. Learning to love them in a relaxed peaceful way will help you savor the love connection.

newborn_baby_sailor-wallpaper-1920x1080

It came as an unexpected surprise when my adult daughter decided to attend a HU Sing during her impromptu visit with us one weekend. Two weeks prior, before any of us were aware she’d be visiting, the Prophet — my spiritual teacher and inner guide — appeared to me in what I can now say was a prophetic dream. In this dream, he explained that my daughter had contacted him about an upcoming class, indicating in some way that she wanted to surprise me. It wasn’t long before she did! Two weeks later we were seated at a HU Sing together.

I feel fortunate to have been among those in attendance that day. Sharing the experience with my daughter made it that much more special. The moment I closed my eyes and began singing HU, I saw her as a baby securely cradled in the arms of the Divine. I recognized her as Soul—a beautiful, glowing bundle of Light and Sound. My heart overflowed with an overwhelming sense of gratitude. Different moments from her life began to play out after that, allowing me to experience each one from the perspective of knowing that the Presence of God has always been with her and always will be. A higher truth was evident: Although she is my daughter in this lifetime, she belongs to God and has always been in the loving arms of her Heavenly Father. The peace and trust I felt in this moment can hardly be put into words. Being totally in the moment, aware of the Presence of God, I experienced detachment from worldly concerns of every kind. Divine love filled my heart and I felt free; free to simply love.

Prophet took me on a personal journey into the higher worlds and it changed me. The experience was tailor made to bring me peace, trust, and a greater understanding of love, as it is in Heaven. Through this experience I was able to recognize my two grown children as adults, which has positively affected how I interact with them. I am less emotionally attached to their decisions and free of the expectations I once carried of being invited to weigh in on their decisions. I now have room to enjoy their presence and relate to them as treasured friends; precious Souls I am blessed to share this life with as we each make our way home to God.

It is a profound gift to savor the experiences of life together, unfettered by the emotional entanglements I once mistook for love. I am grateful to the Prophet for showing me a higher, purer way to love. One that allows me to care in a relaxed and peaceful way.

Taking Care of Business

Tags

, , , ,

When facing challenges in life we can handle them better if we surrender to the guidance and flow of Spirit. Prophet can lead us through anything. This doesn’t mean we don’t make the effort to prepare and plan; we still need to do our part. The greatest of which is being receptive to Divine guidance.

dusty_guitar_sound-wallpaper-1920x1080

During some of the early years in which I attended retreats at the Nature Awareness School my teacher mentioned enjoying the song “Takin’ Care of Business,” by Bachman-Turner Overdrive, and we even listened to it during some of our class breaks. Although I remembered this song from when I was a teenager, it took on a whole new dimension in light of the spiritual training I was receiving. Not only is it fun, upbeat, and motivating, it also reminds me of how we are here to “take care of business” spiritually — to wake up to our true Divine nature, nurture our personal connection with God, and help others to discover their divinity. Over time this song has become part of my personal “awake dream” language. When I hear it, it opens my heart, reminds me of my spiritual priorities, and of my cherished relationship with my teacher Prophet Del Hall.

In the past year I have been blessed with a huge door opening in my life; after decades of being a freelance professional musician I am now teaching music at a college. It is both fun and exciting, yet extremely challenging. I find myself way out of my comfort zone much of the time, dancing on the precipice where preparation meets surrender. I have pondered on the fact, that some of the things I have been doing professionally for so many years are much more challenging to teach than I thought they might be.

Recently I sat in my car about fifteen minutes before my afternoon songwriting class began asking Prophet for help. Although I think I was doing a satisfactory and functional job delivering the material, there was a flow, or a “sweet spot” I just had not found yet. I was following a rigid outline and nervous to depart from it. I knew my students had way more potential than had been brought out, and so much more to share if they just felt a little more comfortable opening up. I knew there was more. I also knew there was nothing I could do to make that happen; I had to surrender. I sang HU for several minutes, helping me relax, let go of my mind chatter, and focused inwardly on spiritual guidance.

As I entered the classroom I felt a strong nudge from Prophet to put on the song “Takin’ Care of Business.” The guidance was just to put the song on, without introducing it or saying a word. After it was done playing, I began a discussion with the class. It turned out the song was a perfect segue into the outline I had already planned for the day. Instead of sticking to the outline however, I allowed the discussion to unfold in a much more spontaneous way. One by one the students shared on a deeper level than I had ever heard before, and I was talking less and listening more. I felt I was more in the role of a “facilitator,” which is something I have witnessed and aspired to from observing my teachers Del and Del IV facilitate their classes.

I am grateful for being given the experience of being a facilitator that day. By surrendering my personal agenda and going “off-script,” I was actually more in alignment with God’s script and in the flow of Spirit. And the prayer that was in my heart was answered: more important than covering my exact lesson plan that day was my desire that the students and I share an experience of openness and connection. The points in my outline that were important still got covered, but in a more seamless and inspired way than I could have ever planned or thought of on my own. God loves each of us and wants to help us take care of the everyday business of our lives, whatever that may be. Thank you Prophet for always knowing the best ways to help me “take care of business!”

God’s Love is All Around Us

Tags

, , , ,

We are here on Earth to learn more about giving and receiving love. Of the two, more tend to struggle with receiving love rather than giving love. Fortunately, the Divine presents us with countless opportunities to practice, for if one desires to truly give love they must first be able to receive it. We cannot pass on what we do not have.

I attended a wonderful reunion recently. There I was blessed to experience God’s Love in a circumstance that was different than I would have imagined. Every moment can be an opportunity to give or receive love, no matter where we are – at church or at home, at work or at the store. Or in this example – cutting cheesecake.

It was a perfect mid-summer evening. I was standing around the table with my family and friends, enjoying the sweet laughter and familiar sounds of those I love while I was slicing the cheesecake for dessert. Suddenly, I began to feel weak and fainted. Two men stood at the table beside me and caught me as I began to fall. My husband watched me begin to faint and raced around the table to catch me before I hit the ground.

For those of you whom have fainted before, you can probably relate to the anxiety with which you come back into your body, unaware as to why people are looking down at you with such concern. Slowly I realized what had happened. With my husband at my side like a rock of solid love, I received a chair in which to rest until I gained back my strength. A friend who is a physician’s assistant began to ask me questions to decipher what had happened, but there seemed to be no logical explanation for it. It was an unexpected and random event which contained a hidden blessing.

As I was recovering in the chair, I became aware that God was opening a window for me. Through it, He was revealing a greater portion of His Love for me through my friends and family. I knew at that moment that He has that same love for each and every one of us, including you. More love than we could possibly imagine is all around us – all the time.

For the next ten minutes as I regained stability, I could feel God’s Love pouring into me. I could now see what had always been there. Gratitude streamed out of my heart. I am so blessed to love and be loved by my husband. His strength and devotion became even more apparent to me that night, shining forth through a turbulent moment. How sweet that was and still is!

Around the room stood other people in my life whom I love and who love me. Disguised as human love, I received a portion of God’s Love in each thought or prayer of well wishes and each compassionate look in their eyes. As a friend gave me a glass of water, it was God’s Love that was passed into my hand and heart. Each touch on the shoulder, each cold rag on my forehead did the same. They were all gifts of love from God, just in a different form – given from Soul to Soul. It was a very precious moment. To be loved is no little thing, but a huge gift from God that I cherish.

I also felt so protected. I had been in precarious places to faint earlier that day – at the edge of a creek, on a large rock in the woods, and alone in the bathroom. Yet I fainted at the precise moment in time where I could receive the most care. I could see the concern in my husband’s and friends’ eyes, understandably, but I knew that somehow this was part of God’s plan for me. Throughout the whole experience, I was blessed to be keenly aware of the Prophet of God’s presence with me. His presence gives me a comfort and security that transcends any physical experience. With him I was aware of a  sphere of soft golden and white light surrounding me and the entire room. Inwardly, the Prophet gave me reassurance that everything was fine, which helped me to relax and be present in the moment.

On this wonderful summer evening, I was given the opportunity to see and accept more of God’s Love. For years Del Hall has taught me and others to recognize God’s Hand, and His Love, in all areas of our lives. And in this moment of physical vulnerability, God’s message got through to me. I saw His Love in everything and everyone around me. Throughout my life I, like many others, have found it easier to give love than to receive it. This night was an opportunity to just accept it. Thank you Prophet for helping me to see and accept more of what has always been around me – God’s Love.

Traveling the Speed of Light Before Dinner

Tags

, , , ,

A dish to be washed, a bill to be paid, a bed to be made. In life there will always be something “urgent” which tries to take all of our attention. It requires a conscious choice to make time for what is truly “important” and nurture our relationship with the Divine.

forest_waterfall-wallpaper-1920x1080

Phew. It had been a long day. I had taught my three children in home school, and watched three infants/toddlers in my daycare. Needless to say it was a busy day, from snacks, to dishes, to diapers, to schoolwork. But now I had about fifteen minutes of time before the oven timer would sound, indicating that dinner was ready for my three hungry children and husband. The kids were quietly engaged in their own activities. How would I choose to spend my time? There were reminders of urgent things all over the house, the laundry, the sticky floor from a toddler spilling juice, dishes in the sink, phone calls to make and those dust bunnies that had been hiding under the couch for a week. We all have our lists right? Yet even though we take care of things, the lists never really end. The next day there are more dishes in the sink and the kids need a bath again. Oh, the joys of a busy and full life!

This evening though, I chose to put my relationship with the Divine before the urgent matters of the day. As I laid down onto my bed, I was so grateful for the quiet and began singing HU, a love song to God. As I sang, I could feel the weight of the day falling off of me. With each HU I relaxed more into the comfort of my bed. As I sang I saw the Prophet in my inner vision. Suddenly we were traveling at the speed of light. My whole day and my whole life remained on Earth as I traveled with him. Then, I became aware that we were beside a vast ocean. I experienced such freedom as I became a dolphin flying through the water. In and out of the water I dove, and I twirled in absolute freedom. Oh the joy of movement not bound by the limits of my physical body. Then a new scenery appeared. I felt a waterfall flowing over and through my body. Any remaining tiredness was cleansed from me. This was true relaxation. As I continued I heard a low humming sound in the distance. It was not a physical sound, but a spiritual one. It is hard to describe what it sounded like in words, but hearing it uplifted me. I felt even more rejuvenated. The Prophet spoke to me, giving me clarity and a solution to something that I had been working on.

The timer rang and it was time to continue on with my evening. I bounced out of bed, ready to face anything that the evening could bring. I was relaxed, rejuvenated, and uplifted by singing HU and choosing to put the Kingdom of Heaven first in my life, during that brief window right before dinner. Thank you Prophet for the wonderful and refreshing journey into Heaven!

The Best Christmas Gift Ever

Tags

, , ,

If someone offered you the opportunity to have your own direct experiences with the Holy Ghost, to feel God’s Love personally, to gain wisdom on the mysteries of life, bring more love and balance into your life, and nurture a deeper relationship with the Divine – would you accept it? If so, here is your chance.

The best Christmas gift I ever got came the week before Christmas, 2004. It was December 17, a day that would change my life forever.

The gift was not a new possession. It was not something that could be bought or sold in any store. The gift was this: a trusted friend taught me to sing HU (pronounced hue), a sacred love song to God. HU is an ancient name for God that can be sung quietly or aloud in prayer. HU has existed from the beginning of time in one form or another and is available to all regardless of religious path. It is a pure way to express your love to God and give thanks for your blessings.

When he shared HU with me I could feel that it was something very special. We sang HU together and I saw the Light of God for the first time. It was like nothing I had ever experienced before. It was more than just light; it brought a message of joy, clarity, peace, and most of all, that we are loved and not alone. Even though I had gone to church often as a child, this was the first time that I actually felt connected to the Holy Spirit. I have come to know that Jesus and all of his disciples sang HU. Singing HU conditions you to receive God’s Love, and as we are able to receive more of God’s Love, our lives become blessed with abundance (John 10:10).

After sharing HU my friend gave me a brochure for the Nature Awareness School where he had learned about HU fifteen years before. I signed up for the first class that I was eligible for and my life has never been the same. Looking back to that December day in 2004, I had no idea the amazing journey that lay ahead. All I can say is that God is real, God loves you, and His mighty Hand reaches out to you.

Past Life and Promise of Healing

Tags

, , , ,

The Light of God can manifest in many different colors. Sometimes the specific color will provide additional insight into the experience. For example, many times orange light will accompany physical healing or insights into a past life. In the following example the author experiences both.

orange_landscape-wallpaper-1920x1080

One of the ways that we grow as students of the Prophet, Del Hall, is to take his teachings home, integrate them into our lives, and go deeper. After a weeklong retreat this summer I invited his inner presence to join me for a HU song and contemplation. I had a soft intent to gain more information from the retreat and help myself with recurring neck and shoulder pain.

It was a beautiful Sunday morning and I was on my deck admiring the vegetable garden. We had just started harvesting some of the vegetables. It always amazes me what can grow from a tiny seed. I was reminded of the many seeds of truth Del had planted within my consciousness over the years that now bear fruit. The birds and insects were singing and I decided to join them. I began to sing HU, a love song to God. My heart was full of gratitude for my upcoming wedding. Although I was happy, my body was experiencing pain. I had tried numerous therapies for a few months, which brought temporary relief. This particular morning I remembered a spiritual exercise where we can ask our inner guide to bring God’s healing orange Light to an area where we have illness or pain. I decided to do this during the quiet time after singing HU.

I had a strong awareness of the Prophet’s inner presence with me. I became more tuned in to a sense that there was no separation between us. I was within the cosmic fabric that sustains everything. A strong reverence for the presence that encompassed me gave way to an orange effervescent light that cascaded over my being and into my physical body. It went to the source of pain, which unexpectedly became an impression of an arrow breaking through the left side of my upper shoulder from behind. This immediately sent a shooting nerve pain into my neck. It really hurt.

This was the recurring pain that I kept having off and on. Still deep in contemplation, I remembered that orange light is also one way God can reveal past lives to us. There was a lot of orange light in my inner vision. A name from a past life and time period came to me. I knew that I was not this particular person from the past, but the clue was that I was alive during this time in history and had sustained a battle wound in this area of my body. I had a vision of breaking the wooden shaft off where the arrow came through. I pulled the weapon out of my flesh. There was a sense of an infection that set in many days later and no more was revealed to me.

After this contemplation the pain that was there subsided. It had been dulled through this experience as if God’s Prophet put a soothing balm on it. I was given a knowing that I need to be patient with this healing. It had many layers and would not be in my best interest at this time to simply fix the pain and move on. There was more to come over the year and I would get it as I could accept it. This lifetime was thousands of years back. I suppose I should have been more surprised at this but I wasn’t. Anything is possible with God’s Prophet. I can testify that he will do just about anything to help us (with our permission) to accept more of God’s Love and more of our own Divinity. This is one of many occasions when I was given such grace.

I had been conditioned for this gift of love during the weeklong retreat I attended and frankly, over many lifetimes. Being taken back several thousand years was not random. The pain I was having wasn’t random. It all ties into my personal journey over the years. There is a golden thread of love and truth that connects every experience I have and ever will have.

I was given a blessing with God’s orange Light which brought insight into where my neck pain originated, temporary relief from the physical pain, and a knowingness that I am in the middle of a healing that is going to take more time to become permanent. It is a gift of love to be reassured of this, which brings greater trust throughout the process. I have come to learn that I have an easier time giving love than accepting it. With each healing from the past a greater ability to accept love has been given to me. The greatest joy I have found in life is the joy of giving. However, one can only give out what he or she can first accept.

I am so grateful to have learned some of the language of God. I know that many times colors of specific light are an expression of love, which contains infinite blessings.

A Beautiful and Familiar Sound

, , ,

There are very few things of greater value we could share with you than HU. HU (pronounced hue) is an ancient name for God that can also be sung in loving gratitude as the purest of prayers. It raises you up and opens you up to be able to accept more of God’s Love. The author of the following story shares her experience of singing HU for the first time in this life.

waterfall_39-wallpaper-1920x1080

The first time I heard about the HU it was slightly out of my comfort zone. I had certainly listened to hymnals growing up and felt uplifted by some of them, but I had never heard about just singing a love song to God as a prayer. So when Del said he wanted to share something very special with us at the end of my class at the Nature Awareness School, it was out of the box that I had about religion. I had tried chants before in yoga classes as a teenager and honestly did not really enjoy them. Would this be like those? No. Would singing this sound bring me closer to God? Yes. Would singing this song really express the love that I felt inside for the Heavenly Father? Yes. Would it be a true prayer? Yes.

I trusted Del. Everything he had taught me so far had rung true and I was willing to give something new a try. There was nothing to lose, and maybe there was actually something to it. And there was.

When the class of about twelve people started to sing HU I felt a little awkward at first, but the more I sang, the more I relaxed. I remember what Del had said before we started, it does not matter so much what your voice sounds like, it is about the love that you send when you are singing. And the more I relaxed, and focused on sending love in each HU, the more familiar it sounded. It was like I remembered this sound, even though I had never heard it before. We sang for about fifteen minutes, and it was the most beautiful song I had ever heard. I heard sounds within sounds. It actually brought tears to my eyes. This was Heavenly music. This was a completely new way for me to pray, to just say thank you and I love you to God. As we sang I just knew that God had heard me and felt such a deep peace knowing that. Something seemingly so simple had touched me deeply.

Now, after almost fifteen years of singing HU, I have grown to understand the value of the gift he gave me that day. Singing the HU has changed my life. I am so grateful to Del for teaching me this prayer. I am also grateful to have had the courage that day to try something new, to briefly step out of the little box I lived in, and experience a new way to express love to the Divine. The HU, a love song to God, so simple, yet so pure and beautiful.

Grateful for the Time I Had

This story is about more than the loss of a beloved pet. It is about having the wisdom, trust, and strength to focus on the positive in a time of genuine sadness. Those who have this attitude of gratitude will be able to travel through the rough patches in life with less wear and tear.

adam

I am eleven years old and I had an amazing, amiable boy cat named Adam. His personality was adorable and I loved him dearly. He knew how to give and receive love. On March 11, 2015 my family and I had to take him to the veterinarian and put him down. He had a urinary tract infection which had damaged his kidneys. He was only three years old and I was extremely sad! I trusted God and knew in my heart this happened for a reason, but it still hurt. Even so, I decided it would be better to be grateful for the time I had with him instead of being sad about the time I didn’t.

I know you can visit loved ones in dreams so I asked Prophet several times over the next few nights for a dream with Adam. I did not receive one right away but kept asking and never gave up. One night I had a wonderful dream with him, it was so clear. In the dream I was climbing the stairs to my room to go to sleep. When I opened the door Adam was sitting right there on the floor next to my bed. Once Adam saw me he quickly scrambled under the bed like some cats do. Sadly I got in bed, wishing he had not scurried away. He then peaked his head out with a look on his face that said, “Oh… you want to pet me.” He then snuggled up close to me purring loudly. I could feel his warmth as I scratched his furry little head. It felt so real! I cried both joyful and sad tears. I am very grateful that God and Prophet knew I missed him. It helped me a lot seeing him again.

After a few months I started wondering about getting another kitten as a gift for my upcoming birthday. I then received a magazine I subscribe to and it had a kitten on the cover, which it never does. The month of the issue was my birthday month. I was then reading a book and the girl who had always wished for a kitten received one for her birthday. I took these signs as confirmation of what was in my heart: I was ready for and desired another cat.

I will always have a strong love for Adam as well as for my new kitten, Milo. I’ll always remember Adam and the amazing gift that God gave me.

Alzheimer’s Loved Ones Get Second Chance

Tags

, , , ,

It is hard losing a loved one to Alzheimer’s disease. Even harder living with any sort of regret for not expressing your love one more time, or saying you are sorry for something. In this situation a dream might offer you some peace.

beach_chairs-wallpaper-1920x1080

One of the hardest things I have found about losing a loved one to Alzheimer’s Disease is that you do not have a final opportunity to say everything you want to say, to make sure you really say “I love you” and “goodbye.” You realize one day that while your father is still alive in a body, in many ways he is gone. You cannot talk about your feelings, he cannot share his – it’s too late. It is a little like when a loved one dies suddenly and unexpectedly. I am so grateful to know that with a little effort, and by opening up your ideas of how communication between two Souls can happen, you can continue to have contact and all the blessings that come with it.

There came a point during my father’s Alzheimer’s that I knew we would never have a heart-to-heart in our physical bodies again; he was having such trouble understanding the simplest things, like where the kitchen sink was. But I knew that dreams are a very real place where we could talk. I let God know in prayer that I would like to clear up some old issues with my father before he passed away, and shortly after that I had a dream where we came together to talk. Ahead of time, I had thought he would apologize for his mistakes and that I would forgive him, but when we actually met in the dream we both came to the point quickly with a mutual, “Hey, I know I’ve done things to hurt you, I’m sorry for them, let’s move on.” In the dream I was my true self and could own up to my own mistakes better than as my waking self. I got the sense that back and forth in various past lives both of us had hurt the other, but all that truly mattered was our deep love for one another. We were not going to count hurts and expect compensation, we were dropping it all. It was the briefest of dreams but I came away from it with a knowing that we had cleared the air in the deepest sense, and we could leave the past in the past and simply love each other.

After my father passed away, I discovered that my mother, widowed after fifty-five years of marriage, was not at all at peace about his death. First of all, she had deep doubt about whether there was life after death. She had a horrible pain, wondering if in dying he had ceased to exist at all. I felt honored to be the daughter she shared this with, and I tried to offer her my confidence that her husband still existed. That he is and always will be a unique child of God, not here but indeed somewhere, fully himself, whom she would see again someday. I felt some of it seep into her. While she needed to borrow my confidence, part of her trusted the reality of what I described. I left her to percolate on these things and develop her own confidence in them, knowing she should not be pushed.

A few weeks later I had the nudge to find out her current feelings about my father’s death. I asked her if she had feelings of guilt, and she readily admitted that she did. She felt she had not been as good a wife as she could have been. At first I tried to reassure her that she need not feel guilty, that we all do our best but fall short of our own expectations. But then she said something that really struck me, “Do you think he knows I’m sorry? Is he aware?” This showed me that she had reached a place where she trusted he still existed after death, and this was a leap forward from where she was a few weeks before. Now she just needed to be reassured that he could still hear her. I did that, and took it a step further: “You can hear him too. Imagine what he would say back.” And she did; she told me she pictured him reassuring her, gently urging with a bit of a chuckle, “Oh forget it! Don’t worry about it!” I felt a shift, a release in her, a loosening of a burden. It was almost like he said it to her at that moment, as she described it to me.

Knowing we can work through problems with loved ones when physical communication is not possible is exciting and reassuring. We do not need to carry regret forever over words not spoken. Sit and close your eyes, sing HU, and have that conversation now. Or ask God to bring you together in a dream. It is real and it can heal both of you.
