The Beloved is Everywhere 

I don't care what you call it. 

God. Tao. Nature. Yahweh. Taku Skan Skan. Allah.

Oshun. Kami. Windhorse. Bodhicitta. Shiva. Vishnu. Mana.

Orenda. Maheo. Gitche Manitou. Sophia. Amaterasu. Danu.

The Beloved is everywhere
and has many names and faces.

What I care to know
is your story

of the thing you love

that unties the knots inside you...

that makes you long to be more like it.

Prayer for Protection ~~~~~~~~


The Light of God surrounds me.

The Love of God enfolds me.

The Power of God protects me.

The Presence of God watches over me.

The Mind of God guides me.

The Life of God flows through me.

The Laws of God direct me.

The Power of God abides within me.

The Joy of God uplifts me.

The Strength of God renews me.

The Beauty of God inspires me.


Wherever I am, God is!



The heart is where the action is not the brain


Do you need Me?

I Am there.

You cannot see Me, yet I Am the Light you see by.

You cannot hear Me, yet I speak through your voice.

You cannot feel Me, yet I Am the power at work in  your hands.

I Am at work, though you do not understand My ways.

I Am at work, though you do not recognise My works.

I Am not strange visions.  I Am not mysteries.

Only in absolute stillness beyond self, can you know Me as I am and then but as a feeling and a faith.

Yet I Am there.  Yet I hear.  Yet I answer.

When you need Me, I Am there.

Even if you deny Me, I Am there.

Even when you feel most alone, I Am there.

Even in your fears, I Am there.

Even in  your pain, I Am there.

I Am there when you pray and when you do not pray.

I Am in you and you are in Me.

Only in your mind can you feel separate from Me, for only in your mind are the  mists of 'yours' and 'mine'.

Yet only with your mind can you know Me and experience Me.

Empty your heart of empty fears.

When you get yourself out of the way, I Am there.

You can of yourself do nothing, but I can do all.

And I Am in all.

Though you may not see the good, good is there, for I Am there.

I Am there because I have to be because I Am.

Only in Me does the world have meaning, only out of Me does the world take form, only because of Me does the world go forward.

I Am the law on which the movement of the stars and the growth of living cells are founded.

I Am the Love that is the law's fulfilling.  I Am assurance.  I Am peace. I Am oneness.  I Am the law that you can live by. I Am the love that you can cling to.  I Am your assurance.  I Am your peace.  I Am one with you. I Am.

Though you fail to find Me, I do not fail you.

Though your faith in Me is unsure, My faith in you never waivers because I know  you, because I love you.

Beloved, I Am there.



Today the prayer is a feeling - prayer in action I like to call it - the joy is bubbling up in me like champagne bubbles for no other reason than I AM CONNECTED to the I AM (I Am is another word for God), I FEEL CONNECTED AND THEREFORE I AM - this is my prayer.

(p.s.  that age old saying I think therefore I Am is so confusing and keeps us from what is real.  Thinking is what causes chaos – awareness of the thinking is the I Am that causes harmony, abundance and true joy).

Want to feel connected and full of joy??

         (Course you do!!)       



(I first heard this prayer on an audio tape many many years ago and it has been a source of comfort and sacredness to me - keeps me on track with what is real).

There was a time when in my daily prayer I asked for all the things I deemed most fair and necessary to my life.

Success, riches of course, and ease and happiness, a  host of friends, a home without a loy, a primrose pond of happiness and joy.

Ambition ruled my way, I longed to do great things that all my little world might view and whisper -wonderful.  Oh patient God how blind we are until thy Shepherd's rod of tender chastening shall lead us on to better things.

Today, I  have but one petition Lord ~~ teach me to Love. Indeed, it is my greatest and my only need.  Teach me to love not those who first loved me, but all the world with that rare purity of broad outstretching thought that bears no trace of earthly taint, but  holds in it' s embrace humanity, and seems to see only the good in all, reflected Lord, from Thee.

Teach me, father, how to love the most, those who stand most in need of love.  That  host of people who are poor, and sick, and bad.  Whose tired faces show their lives are sad.  Who toil along lifes way with footsteps slow, and hearts more heavy than the world can know.  People whom others pass discreetly by and fail to hear the pleading and the cry for help amongst the tumult of the crowd.  People whose anguish makes them cold and proud, bitter, resentful, sullen in their grief.  I long to bring comfort and relief, to put my hand in theirs and at their side walk softly onwards.  O faithful, fearless guide, O Saviour, Though the Christ, Truth ever near, help me to find those lost ones ~ doubly dear because they need so much.  Help me to seek and find that which they thought was lost.  To speak such words of cheer that as we pass along, the wilderness will burst forth in song.  O Love Divine how empty was that prayer of other years that which was once so fair.  Those empty baubles that the world calls joys are nothing to me now but broken toys~~ outlived, outgrown, I thank Thee that I know those much desired dreams of long ago, like butterflies, have had their summer day of brief enchantment and have gone.  Today, I pray, for better things.  Thou knowest Lord above, my one desire now ~~~ teach me to Love.

Coming soon audio of this prayer ..........




God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference




Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will direct your paths.

Proverbs 3, 5-6



Let me help you align with your Spirit, for without this alignment, abundance will not follow at every level
