Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly…


A sweet friend recently gave me a magnet with this on it. I was so touched by her thoughtfulness, as well as the hopeful message.

Personally and collectively, it feels like we are in such a time of birthing and leaving behind all that does not serve our highest good. But it is sometimes hard to see and hear the new amidst the noise and chaos of our times. Who amongst us hasn’t sometimes wished that we could hit a fast forward button? Yet we are creating our wings with each step (and flutter) of the journey.

When I long for big changes, I have to recognize how attached I am to the current way of living. Then I remember this from “Hope for the Flowers”. ‘How does one become a butterfly? You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.’

Dear and beloved ones,

How I love to affirm your beauty and how much I love you! I so very much want you to affirm this, as well. Yet so often I hear you affirming what is not your true self.

Do you see yourself as strong, powerful and wise? Or do you view yourself as inferior, weak and lacking wisdom? Your thoughts create your reality, whether you recognize this or not.

All you need is abundantly available to you. But unless you reach for it with confidence and enthusiasm, it will elude your grasp. You can blame yourself, others or whoever you choose to hold responsible. But it is simply a choice or actually a series of choices.

Affirm your strength, your capableness, your abilities, all that you want and dream about. It is there, my darlings, just waiting to be accessed and affirmed. As you take steps toward your goals and dreams, they will appear, often more quickly than you imagine possible. But you must be active, not passive. You are co-creators, not helpless children, waiting to be given what you want and need.

As you affirm the gifts that are within you, more will emerge in beauty and perfection. Always I hold you close to my heart of love. I am with you each step, holding your hand and your heart in my tender care. Rest against me when you are tired and sense our hearts beating in quiet rhythm. All is well, dear ones.

I am Gaia, your Earth Mother, your friend

Miracles are everyone’s right, but purification is necessary first.

~A Course in Miracles

I have seen miracles happen this past week. One of my dear friends attended a healing touch class and while she was receiving a treatment, she experienced an amazing healing of the scoliosis in her back. My friend and mentor Nancy Joy Hefron told me about a tree near her home being struck by lightning and how the energy of the large stones around it has changed. I’m sure a portal has opened for energy flow-what a blessing!

Yet during this same time period, what I call ‘old crud’ came for a visit in my life-pain, fear, woundedness from my past. The circumstances that caused these things have passed but some of the old feelings have been stored inside me, needing to be brought to the surface for healing. It put me into a tailspin for a few days and I am working though them, grateful and off balance at the same time. I know in my heart that this is part of my purification. I want to leave the old feelings behind that no longer serve me so I can face the future cleansed and more whole.

I feel the earth participating in purification and each of us has our own process for doing this. In our oneness, we share the path and hold a space of love for each other as we purge and purify. As we leave the past behind, we can embrace the New which is unfolding in its perfect timing.

Dear ones, beloved of my heart,

Indeed there is a cleansing flood washing over the earth, touching each person, each plant, each creature, each stone and every corner of the planet and beyond. It is time to open up the closets, so to speak, and pull everything out-keeping what serves Divine perfection and releasing what does not. It’s time to scrub and clean and sort.

This is not an easy process. Yet it is much more manageable when you hold the hand of your Earth Mother and rest against my heart. Kindred spirits and friends will surround you as you do the hard work of freedom and healing. Your partners from the Unseen realm walk beside you, encouraging you and assisting you each moment.

This is a time to go deep into all that blocks you from the New. Each of you has your old wounds, pain, anger, injustices and inner darkness. As you bring these things forth into the light, the darkness will vanish. It is natural to avoid pain and things that make you fearful. Yet they are the very things that clear the path to healing and wholeness.

The New is near, much nearer than you realize. It is emerging and expanding in miraculous and marvelous ways. Open your hands, your eyes, your heart and receive it in beautiful abundance.

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

Fear is a gift of great magnitude. It is a beacon calling you to step into, not away from the very thing you are afraid of.

~Nancy Joy Hefron

Do what you fear and the death of fear is certain.

~Norman Vincent Peale

In the last few days, I seem to be bumping into fear-my own, other people’s and a sense of collective fear as we experience all of the changes that are taking place, such as weather catastrophes. As always, Nancy Joy’s words are a wonderful reminder that fear is actually a gift, not something to avoid or push aside. It leads us to places that need to be healed or shifted. It’s a lesson I continue to learn over and over. We don’t have to face fear alone, thank goodness. We have friends, family and helpers in the Unseen realm to be with us through everything that happens.

Blessings, Mary

Beloved ones,

Indeed fear is embedded in the collective psyche of the earth. Now is a healing time, a transforming time, a time when wounds and pain and fear rise to the surface to be felt, healed and released. The fear is like dust flying when you clean your house. After the air clears, things feel better.

Many of you want to rise above your fear, push it aside, turn your back on it. That will not help in the healing. You are earth beings and fear is a dense, dark energy. It needs to be cleared away so you can fully enjoy the gifts that are being offered. Bring it into the light and it will vanish as clouds do when the sun shines through.

Help is flowing to the earth from every corner of the universe. It is rising from the depths of the earth to support the changes that are occurring. It is descending from the heavens. You need simply to be awake and aware and watchful as life unfolds. You have your roles, to be sure, but know that you have partners in the Unseen realm who are with you each moment, pouring out love and assistance.

Embrace your role as co-creator and change bearers. Anything that you leave behind will be replaced with things of much greater value…and I’m not talking about money! Love, peace, abundance of all kinds. These are yours, my darlings, if you but open your hands, your hearts, your eyes to receive them.

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