Man on Earth has the tendency to see only how destructive he can be; he does not have the self-confidence about how constructive he can be.

~Machaelle Small Wright, Perelandra Garden Workbook

When I talk to people, I often sense an underlying sense of guilt when something comes up about the problems the earth is experiencing. Although we don’t often talk about it, I think most of us know that our consumption and choices are adding to the problems. And fear is certainly present, as well. Yet, we have such power to create, as well as damage and destroy. This quote was a comforting reminder that we can make a positive difference, if we choose to act on what is possible.

Precious and beloved ones,

Often I speak words of comfort and reassurance to you. Yet often I sense that they are falling on ears that have trouble hearing or accepting them.

The earth is showing you your power! I know it hurts to see the problems that humans have created. They make visible your power to damage and destroy. Please try to see the other aspect of your power-your ability to co-create beauty and build abundance. My darlings, this power is fully accessible to you each moment, right now this very minute!

You have the power to bring smiles to people’s faces or to hurt them with your words and actions. This is also true in your relationships with the earth and nature. When you care for the earth with love and conscious connection, how the nature realm rejoices! Certainly the earth and all of creation benefit. So do you! That love and connection is returned to you, dear ones.

You are loved by nature-animals, plants, trees and so much more, whether you are aware of this or not. When you become aware of what surrounds you-nature spirits, devas, nature beings and essences, you are blessed in amazing ways. You are held in intense and abiding love.

Nature does its part and so must you. Now is a time of healing and transformation. It is time to discover and embrace your power to co-create what you desire. Dream dreams and take tangible steps to make them reality. Your thoughts and ability to visualize what you want and need is far more expansive and powerful than most people imagine or believe.

Stretch yourself! Allow yourself to imagine things that seem impossible. Then be expectant, hopeful, trusting. Turn your face toward the light and darkness will vanish from your view. Take appropriate action and ask for the guidance and help that you need. Then relax and rest in the love that is flowing to you.

I love you, precious ones. I am Gaia, your Earth Mother, your friend

Be as generous as a comfrey plant.


Hello, this message about comfrey came to me this week as I was thinking about how each plant has its own wonderful characteristics and feel to it. Comfrey is a marvelous plant, often used in permaculture because it does so many things. It has a long taproot that goes deep into the soil, bringing up nutrients that are deposited in its leaves. The leaves sprawl around it and mulch the soil, releasing the nutrients where other plants can use them. I am interested to see what Gaia has to say about this!

Blessings, Mary

Dear and beloved children, my friends,

Each moment you are invited and welcomed to let nature be your teacher, your partner, your friend. We learn from you, dear ones. We yearn to teach you our lessons and share our wisdom.

Indeed each plant has its role, its gift, its purpose, just as you do. What joy when people discover what makes their heart sing and their soul feel like flying!

Comfrey is a strong and resilient plant. Its deep roots reach down into the soil and find the nutrients that they need. First the comfrey uses what it needs for growth and development. It then shares the bounty with other life. What is the lesson? To care for your own needs before you try to care for others. When you are drained and worn out, you have little to share. Tend to your own needs before you try to give. Then you will be a joyful giver and all are blessed.

What else does comfrey teach? Sharing! Often humans withhold and hoard, fearful that they won’t have ‘enough’. This worry simply creates what you fear will happen, for your thoughts create your reality, whether you realize it or not. When your cup is full, share! This keeps the energy flowing and draws from the Divine Source which is without limit.

Comfrey also teaches endurance and resilience. Once a comfrey plant is established, it is almost impossible to remove. It survives many circumstances and challenges. So can you! Comfrey is connected to deep places where life flourishes. So are you! When life sends you difficulties, reach deep into the earth and high into the sky, where you can sense your oneness with all that is. Then you will find comfort, confidence and connection.

Comfrey is a cheerful plant, strong and happy to be of service. It has gifts and shares them gladly. When you care for your own needs, you will be cheerful and sharing will flow naturally from you to others and back again, blessing the circle of life.

I love you, my darlings. I hold you close to my heart during this Turning Time when all is being made new. Stay close to me and all will be well.

I am Gaia, your Earth Mother, your friend

Every blade of grass has its angel that bends over and whispers, ‘grow, grow’

    ~The Talmud

As I experience spring time, I am feeling the life force flowing throughout nature. It is so beautiful! There are miracles everywhere, if we take the time to see and experience them. I hope that each of you is planting something, if it’s spring for you at this time. The angels will be fluttering about, cheering you on!

Blessings, Mary

Dear ones, beloved and precious,

The earth is speaking. Are you listening? Long have I waited for this time, when the sleeping ones awaken and all can know for sure that the Goddess is rising.

What does it mean to have the Goddess rise? It means that balance is being restored upon the earth and beyond. Separation is being healed. Wholeness is being restored. It is glorious news! The division and polarity of male and female, rich and poor, old and young and so many more are being knit back together.

Many people can scarcely believe that a better world is possible. War, financial problems, injustice, disease, natural disasters. These seem so real and so ever present that it is a stretch to imagine that these things can disappear. But they can! All are choices and it is time to choose again. This is something each person can do each moment, each day.

Spend some time every day creating a new world in your mind, in your thoughts and in your heart. See each detail clearly-the beauty and peace and healing. This is important! This is how change begins and grows. When people see the mountain top, they have the vision and the courage to reach the peak and see a new vista stretching out in front of them.

This is the Transformation Time, the time of awakening, the time when heaven comes to earth. Each of you has a part, for each of you is a spark of the Divine, a precious piece of the whole. Perhaps the most important thing you can do is simply to enjoy the beauty of each day, each moment, each person, each part of earth’s creation.

Quiet your mind and breathe the breath of life with me. Rest against the heart of the Mother and feel my arms around you, my strength and wisdom flowing to you, my love surrounding you like a gentle cloud of goodness and light. Know that all is well, despite problems and even disasters. Soon all will become clear and the reasons will be obvious.

I love you, my darlings. I am Gaia, your Earth Mother, your friend

In these times of high vibration and accelerating frequency, it is common for subconscious patterns based on fear to shake loose and rise into your conscious mind.

~Penney Peirce, http://www.masteringalchemy.com

This quote is certainly a good news/bad news thought for me. I say I want to clear out what I call the ‘old crud’ from my thinking and feeling. But it can be painful and humbling. I often avoid facing something till it gets my attention several times. And other times I am simply unaware of what is beneath the surface in my mind and heart.

So I am grateful that life and the Divine are helping me to be open and see what I need to work on and clear out. I am glad that this creates room for freedom and new opportunities. Also, I am so deeply grateful that I am not going through this alone. I am surrounded by courageous and beautiful people who are doing their own learning and growing. Thank you for that gift!

Blessings, Mary

Dear and beloved ones,

Indeed things are being shaken up right now. The earth is doing its part to bring the wounds, pain and darkness into the light. It is happening on a global scale and also in the hearts and minds of each individual who is now in human form.

When a plant’s roots have outgrown the container they are in, what needs to happen? The plant needs to be gently and lovingly moved into a new space-larger and more fertile. Plants do not resist this process even though it is disruptive and some roots are damaged. They welcome the new growth that is possible because of this change.

Many people are not as receptive. They may choose to cling to the old space, resisting changes. This is understandable but not helpful. If you could see up ahead, you would joyfully jump out of the pot, so to speak, and run to the new one!

Look around you! Change is very much needed! The earth is not as healthy as it used to be. Ecosystems are in decline. People are weary, injustice is widespread. Yes, there is much good but the good will travel with you to the New! It is only the outgrown part that no longer fits which needs to be left behind, like a snake that leaves behind its skin when a new one is formed.

After an earthquake, the shaking stops and the ground can be stable again. But the stress and strain of the earth’s lack of alignment has been resolved. The current earthquakes, weather patterns and other changes are your mirror, your teacher. Learn from them and then they will no longer be needed.

This time is like a womb and birth is occurring in the Seen and Unseen places. Stay calm despite the storms that rage around you. Know in your heart that all is well and on schedule. Things are unfolding in divine timing and exquisite beauty. Soon all will know that the Goddess is rising and light will dispel the darkness of the current time.

Rest against me when you are discouraged or confused or distressed. Draw upon the strength and wisdom that flow from a never ending source. Quiet your mind and you will feel a deep and abiding peace. I love you, my darlings. I hold you near to my heart and will be with you each step of the journey.

I love you, dear ones. I am Gaia, your Earth Mother, your friend
