Window into a new world

The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.

William Butler Yeats

I had a very magical experience recently, which felt like it gave me a window into another world which was right under my nose, so to speak.

First of all, how amazing is it that Hawaii is a central meeting place for me, my husband and my children to gather!  But with a son in Beijing, China, a daughter and her family from northern British Columbia and us in Iowa, it really is.  We spent a couple of great weeks there together in January.

While we were there, we went on a wonderful snorkeling boat trip…my first.  I am not a swimmer and tend to be afraid of going in water but I really wanted to try it.  With a very patient helper, I got in and put my head in the water.  It was incredible!  When looking at the surface of the water, you can just see glimpses of what is below the surface-an occasional fish that comes up, a peek at a turtle and whales and dolphins coming up for air.

Ah, but the goggles give you a window into a magical world!  Beautiful fish, amazing coral and other marine life and sights.  As I climbed back on the boat, I marveled at how invisible that underwater world is until our sight changes.  It felt like an example of how we can live in a multi-dimensional world and be limited by our physical eyes and other senses that don’t perceive much of what surrounds us.

There is so much available, just waiting for us to be able to find the vision to be a part of it.  My husband Blair has the gift of seeing auras and colors around people.  I can look at the same people and not see what he does.  Dogs can hear sounds that our ears don’t pick up.  Some people can feel the energy fields around people, plants and animals that others aren’t aware of.

It’s tempting, sometimes, to assume that the world is limited to what our physical senses can see, hear, taste, smell and feel.  But there’s so much more!  As we get excited about life and expectant about what we can experience, more is accessible to us.  Let’s open ourselves to all that life can offer!  Let’s sharpen our senses and find the magic that is waiting for us to discover!!

Blessings, Mary

My beloved friends and co-creators,

Yes, indeed, you are surrounded by mystery and magic and myriad miracles!  Open your hands, your eyes, your ears and your hearts to receive all that is waiting for you.  Think of a tiny kitten whose eyes have not yet opened.  It can’t see what is very near until it finds its sight.  You, dear ones, are like that tiny kitten.

You get frustrated that what you want seems beyond your grasp.  But it is as near as your next breath, your whispered prayer, your quiet faith that all of your needs will be met with great love and perfect timing.

The river of life is carrying you where you need to go.  You can thrash about, feeling like you will drown or be lost.  Yet when you relax, you find that the water is supporting you with little or no effort on your part.  Your role is to become peaceful, buoyant and know that you are safe, held in love that is without end.

The world around you is in turmoil right now.  Old thought forms and systems and institutions are fading as the New ways and forms emerge.  Trust the process and let the Old slip away, unable to continue in the new energy of the New Earth.

All is well, my precious loved ones.  You are surrounded by spirit beings of great power and love.  Trust that all is unfolding in divine care and guidance.  Breathe the breath of life with me and feel your fears and cares disappear.  Rest against my heart and know that all is well, held in love that is timeless and eternal.  As surely as spring follows winter, new life will appear for all to see and be a part of.  It is here now and soon all will see.

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