All things are possible; the universe has no limits. Become familiar with the possibilities so they may extend even beyond the horizon you see. This planet offers much potential and the possibilities are endless. For every problem there is a solution. The solution can be found in the same space where the problem exists. Be aware the solution does not exist at the same level of the problem. Albert Einstein knew this.


If the problem exists at a third dimensional level where lower vibrations prevail, raise your energy to a higher vibration when seeking the resolution to the problem. One cannot solve an advanced math problem with first grade skills. By raising your frequency and observing the problem from a higher level, things will look differently. Observe and allow the answer to come to you. It is that simple.

Remember these things in times to come. Ask for “this or something better than” at the end of your requests so there are no limitations on what is possible and seek solutions from a higher level of energy.

The New Community, part 2



Community is working in cooperation and harmony with others. It is the bringing together of ideas and thoughts and to build what is needed for the community to function as a whole. It is a matter of working together for the benefit of all, but not to the detriment of any. It must be cooperative in all respects to each member of the community.

Each member plays an important part for the betterment of the community. So it is the community and cooperation that must be involved in your success. You are never alone. Separation does not belong at this level of creation.

If something is not in harmony, it must be brought into harmony to be a part of that community. You must be in the present and willing to do your part, not only for your own happiness and joy, but for the happiness and joy of others of like mind.


Nature works this way in cooperation with the environment in which it is found. All things work together. It may not seem like nature is cooperating right now on our Earth, but there is more going on than meets the eye. This is where trust and allowance come into play. You must trust everything is in divine order and allow mother Earth to clear herself of the lower vibratory debris, much like a fever assists in clearing an imbalance in your physical body. Know you are taken care of and ask what is needed by you or of your body when you are feeling out of balance. Know the answer is there and it will come to you.


Community is another aspect of the overall picture of success and achievement. Being in alignment with God and the universe also plays a part. When you are aligned with your purpose, then all else will fall into place.

This means the clues along the way are tools to move you to your purpose and to assist you in fulfilling your purpose. This also allows others to step forward with their part and purpose.

So there is a harmony in all things, from the assistance of nature to the universe assisting you, while you assist community members and align with the universe. This is the alignment we’re talking about. Community plays an important part in assisting the individual while also promoting the betterment of community and the wholeness of all that is.



How does one know they have found their community? Is it what you choose to do? Does it fulfill your needs? Can you contribute to the community and those within, working in cooperation for the betterment of all members in the community?

It will be a natural flow for you as those around you assist you and you in turn assist them. It is a giving and receiving taking place in a very natural respect for each other at a level of cooperation where all are equal. This is the community that is to be created in the fifth dimension. Each member is loved and respected.

There is no hierarchy of one being more important than another. All bring something to the table in cooperation and community in its true sense. Allow it to happen as such and it will be. It is the way of nature and the way it was meant to be.



A medium of exchange, represented in the third dimension by money or currency, may not exist in fifth dimension. Such a situation means you would need to be creative in your exchange of items or services.

Communicating your skill, whether through a bulletin board, the internet, or through networking with friends and family will be important to all. Each of us have many talents and/or skills.

Life will be lived more as a community since the community must learn to support each other with their individual needs in order to be supported within the community. This means it is a sharing of one’s resources for the common good of the community. This is how it shall be in future times which are now rapidly approaching. While being in the body is still common in the fifth dimension, things will appear new to you in some ways.

Part 3 will cover other forms of community.

Wishing you love in all that you do,  Mary




Success Redefined, part 1


Success does not show up on your doorstep. You must work for it.  Archangel Michael

Success is usually seen as accomplishing or achieving something such as fame or wealth. In the fifth dimension many things change, even some of our definitions. Here is an overall view of success and achievement in the fifth dimensional world Earth is rapidly becoming. If you do not know the difference between third, fourth or fifth dimension, refer to my previous blog entitled What is the Fifth Dimension and Why Should I care?

The Ripple Effect

Success has many levels and comes in many forms. For some people, it is in the small things in life such as giving a smile to another in a time of need and bringing that person out of troubled thoughts.

While a smile is a small gesture to the giver, the receiver usually returns the smile. The soul also feels the lift, letting the receiver know someone cares. In this fast-paced life, people often forget to slow down and extend a hand or smile to another.

The benefit or gift of the smile is that it brings the individual back into the present where all things are possible. Love is in the details. Not only may it change the perspective of the receiver, it is one of the little things that creates a ripple effect to others.

I once gave a bonus point at the end of a test to those who wrote down a janitor’s name. The lesson was all jobs and people are important in one’s life. This is also true in the fifth dimension.

For a small child, success is having the opportunity to play with a parent who has too much on his/her mind. The little one knows what’s important and wants to feel and know the parent’s love and to express love. Play, love, affection and a connection on a level of joy is the child’s desire; the higher energy fields that bring the parent into the present.


Creating Your Career or Purpose

Your career may or may not be your purpose. Your purpose is what you agreed to do before entering this lifetime. It is what your soul wants you to do. This is different from your passion or career. For example, my career and passion is teaching; my purpose is to write which is what my soul chooses to experience.

By working within your passion, you can create new ways of thinking and maintain a balance in life. This allows one to live in a state of happiness. Success is not something that just happens. It is achieved. Achieved means one must work toward it. People who come in as prodigies are often masters of their talent from a previous life. Others must practice from where they left off with a talent.

Creating a Plan

One needs goals for direction and guidance and timelines to measure your progress. Goals give you an overall plan of how to proceed which is your guideline to success. Without it, you are letting life and others lead you down paths which may not flow. It will lead you perhaps to your goal, eventually; maybe not in this lifetime. This is the lifetime given to you to move forward quickly with ease and to awaken to your potential as creators with the universe, with nature and with the elements.

Make a list of what you would like to accomplish. These then become your goals. Start by breaking a goal into steps. If you don’t know how to approach it, ask your higher self what it wants you to do. You came with a purpose, so build your successes one step at a time and it will begin to flow. Keep the balance in your life which assists the flow.

Setting goals to create a career or just in general is only one level of success. Success is also the choice to move forward and to keep seeking, exploring, and opening to new ideas and ways of being. It is an expansion of energy into new territory, exploring new horizons previously unknown to mankind. It is a giant step forward and a step back to where you originated from. Success is an opportunity of coming full circle back to your source and to know it as if for the first time.

Achievement: Part of Success

Achievement may be following the steps along the way with each step being a celebration unto itself, having achieved and ready to move to the next step on your path. Each step revealed must be followed. The newness expands into other avenues as a place for you to open to new possibilities and ways of creating. Your work may proceed much differently from that of third dimension.

Success is being in the flow and allowing what shows up in life to guide you to your purpose which is also a time of celebration. Success is also achieved within this flow as an ongoing way of being. Things do not work or flow if you step out of the love.


Victory Verses Success

A victory is more like an achievement than success. When one accomplishes a goal such as graduating from school or college, it is a milestone in life as is marriage and the birth of a child. You may celebrate with family or friends. After that, where are your celebrations? Life is the gift. The celebration is in each moment of life, allowing you to be, to release, the opportunity to forgive and to celebrate the experience of knowing yourselves.

Part 2 will cover the levels of success.

Laughing Your Way to Happiness


What is Happiness?

This lifetime is about joy and happiness. How does one achieve happiness? Some people feel they will be happy when they have or own a particular item such as a house, a car, etc. or when they achieve something.

You do not need to achieve happiness; you are happiness. As a baby you knew happiness when you came into this life. It is a God-given right according to many. It is what you are when you are born. When you are born into your external world, you become more and more familiar with the outside world. Happiness becomes a choice; it is still within you and you can choose happiness or hang on to unsupportive feelings.

As a child, you find yourself laughing for no reason as you lie in the grass and watch the clouds go by. As years pass, you become ingrained into the outer world and its ways. Some individuals become so serious about life and their work that they almost don’t know how to laugh any more. Laughter is a natural reaction. When you find yourself becoming too serious, step back and look at the situation from a different perspective.


The Power of Laughter

Laughter can be many things. For some, it is a release of pent-up energy that wants to be removed. For others, it is a means of escape from what may be uncomfortable to them. Laughter is much more than this. It keeps one out of the stress that mounts up. Many are not aware that it also takes you to a higher vibration. It becomes a tool to remove you from the lower frequencies of energy, overriding and releasing unsupportive energies.

Some individuals find themselves laughing when so many unsupportive situations begin to occur in their life. Others may see a person’s laughter as shocking or offensive in serious situations. The thought might be that the person is ‘losing it’ so to speak. The person is using one of his or her tools to remove oneself from the current situation and place him or herself at a distance from the situation as if to say, “In the overall picture of things, this is not that important; I am giving it more energy than I should.”

So laughter is another tool to use, taking you to a better place than the stressful situation you currently face. While others find it strange, you will find it as a release of the stress or sadness that plagues one in the moment. Laughter is a natural reaction to balance an overload of energy in one of your bodies such as sadness in the emotional body.

Laughter is an important healing tool. When you are in a situation of lower energies and wish to raise the energy, laughter is one way. A u-tube video stuck in my memory was one of a man getting on a train. Moments into the ride he begins to laugh, somewhat subtly at first to attract the attention of those in close proximity. The laughter continues to slowly increase in volume until all on the rail car notice, looking at each other in wonder. Another individual begins to laugh as it becomes contagious. Finally, everyone is laughing as the volume increases.

The train stops; more people get on while others get off. Laughter now becomes short bursts from individuals and many are smiling or snickering as if holding the laughter back. The suited gentleman has left the rail car and is clearly seen moments later through the window on another train. Many in the first train car begin to snicker and laugh as they see the suited man directly across from them on the other train.

Put more laughter into your life and lighten up your path along the way for yourself, for those around you and for those who follow. Laughter is contagious. Spread it around.

Note: People are still working through old patterns and there is a lot of frustration and anger being acted out. Stay down when you can. If you are traveling, ask your guides or guardian angels to protect you as you travel. May your holidays be filled with love, joy, laughter and time well spent with friends and family.



Change Chaos to Celebration


Surviving Chaos

At this time, most people are feeling out of balance, stressed and caught up in the surrounding world’s chaos; wondering what they can do.

First of all, realize none of that occurring in the world is your stuff. Your energy ends with your aura which is about an arm’s length out all around you. If it is beyond that, your energy is scattered and focusing is difficult. Pull your energy into your auric space around you and anchor it in your heart. Everything outside of this area is not your stuff; see it as a play or movie you are watching or observing. Do not participate in it.

If you do not feel grounded, feeling airy fairy or not fully in the body, sit with your feet barefoot, if possible, and tell your feet to grow roots into the center of the earth. Next, breathe the energy of the earth up through the roots and your body to the top of your head and back down into the earth. An alternative is to breathe the energy up through your right foot to the top of your head and back down your left side and out your left foot into the earth a few times before reversing it up through your left foot and side and down the right side and foot. You should find yourself more grounded and present or focused than you were.

Being in nature, walking barefoot on grass or at the seashore are also relaxing. To help with the stress, take up one of the arts. Creating puts you on a higher road of focus. Currently popular coloring books can also relax you. Another alternative is to determine your purpose or gift to the world and develop it. Many are asking for assistance with this at the present time.


Celebration−Not Just the Event

Change your frustration to celebration as you unfold your gift or talent. Frustration comes in many forms. At this time of the year, the holiday season, maybe you are also trying to do too much. Unfortunately, many times we become caught up in the material side of the shopping and prepping for the celebration instead of experiencing the celebration each moment brings with it.

It is not the events that should only be celebrated, but the moments; every moment leading to the event or celebration. Each moment is a celebration of life which leads to what we ultimately see as the celebration.

If each moment were not present, then the celebration could not be. It is each and every moment that adds to that celebration, the event we feel occurs at a specific time. In reality, the celebration is each moment to the next that forms the event to be celebrated.

Writing books with the Archangels and Sri Yukteswar is an example. Sri Yukteswar, Yogananda’s guru, explains it as celebrating each step, each word as it is given to me as a precious gift which brings forth the celebration of life. For each word carries a vibration or frequency of light with it.

It is in the frequency of the light that gives the word meaning and energy. This is why we want you to appreciate each word, its frequency, and what is given as a gift. Do not try rushing through your writings to reach your goal of finishing the book. Rather, we wish to see you enjoying your writing journey, for it offers a new world to you, one moment at a time. This is also true of your paintings as they take you on a journey as each painting unfolds itself.

Allow it to unfold. Allow yourself to unfold like the flower that you are or as you have many times described it as the diamond that is gently being carved one facet at a time, revealing its light long suppressed from time and compressed from space. Allow the diamond to be revealed slowly so it may be enjoyed, one moment at a time, allowing you the revelation of its full beauty when completed and its full effect upon your soul and self.

The diamond and rose each took time to create. You need time to fully develop your creation also. Time is not a limited commodity. Yes, it is being compressed just as the diamond is hidden and compressed. It will unfold at the proper moment and reveal itself when you are ready to greet it as unlimited. For there is no lack in this world, only what one creates within their own world.


What is in Your Universe?

Look within and see what keeps you from celebrating the moment. What keeps you from being who you truly are? Help yourself unfold as the rose gently unfolds unto its true self or as the facets of the diamond are so slowly, gently revealed from the stone, its inner beauty craving to be created so it may also shine again. It is much like us as we find our inner light again after so many lifetimes in darkness. The light is within. Expand it and let it shine again, slowly revealing your gift to the world.

If you do not know what your gift or talent is or how to get started in your work, ask whomever you work with on the higher planes or Archangel Michael. To get started, ask for the first step or verification if unsure. Since we have free will and free choice, they cannot help unless you ask them to. Give yourself a gift by asking for assistance.

Wishing you love in all that you do,




The Gift of the Season



There is much going on with Earth and its people who are in the midst of the holiday season and the aftermath of elections. This is a chaotic time of year; getting ready to celebrate the various holidays, preparing to be with family and friends and purchasing gifts for one another.

Today, take some time and remember the true meaning of the holidays. It is not about shopping for things, even though stores have extended sales over several days for convenience and increased sales. It is still about the true meaning of Christmas or whatever  holiday you choose to honor.

It is time to celebrate. How do you celebrate and what is it you truly celebrate? Does it really matter if your children get the newest phone with all the new features or not? Where are their hearts? Where do they place their attention? The true celebration is the celebration of being, of being who you are and being in the moment.

Go out into nature. Observe how she chooses to spend this time of year. Nature is at rest; at peace. She goes within with her energy, drawing her attention inward and taking the time to rest and renew herself. With all the hustle and bustle of the season, are you taking the time to go within and renew yourself?



People set aside this time of the year to give things and to celebrate. This season, make the time to give thanks on a daily basis. Create a regular practice of gratitude. Take the time to go within and be grateful for each person in your life. What have you learned from each of them? How have they improved your life? These are the gifts we give to each other. What you purchase for another is not as important as the lasting gifts given to you by another and those given in return from you.

What gifts do you give them? How have you changed each of their lives? Monetary gifts are given too much importance. The gifts that come from the heart are what really count.


There was a time, Mary, you also remember so well that it still brings tears to your heart. It was Valentine’s Day and your husband had just gotten out of the hospital. On the way home, you stopped to walk the beach to cheer him up. Tom was upset he had not purchased anything for you. As he looked down, he stopped to pick up a very small stone in the shape of a heart. It is still in your possession today.


A similar situation happened at Christmas time. Your husband begged the doctors to be home for Christmas. Finally, on Christmas Eve he was released from a Denver hospital around 6 p.m. There was no time to shop and not much had been prepared for the holidays. The gift you gave each other was the gift of love, being together at home on Christmas day. Nothing else mattered.

These are examples of the gifts you give each other. Money cannot buy these things. Take the time to tell each other what they mean to you, the importance they have played in your life and how you are so much better off because of the individual being in your life. Celebrate the moment and be grateful for what you do have. There may be times that this becomes more important than buying something. Be with your loved ones during these times and share the gift of each of them being a part of your life.

Archangels Michael, Raphael and Michael and Sri Yukteswar

Giving Thanks



Much is occurring on your planet at this time. It is a time of what may be seen as upheaval and chaos. Many worry about the weather and its causes; others are concerned if there will be enough money to live on or about losing their job. Too many worry about their daily needs. Set aside these worries for that is all they are. Know that God always provides.

What the nation and the world need now are many things in the eyes of the people. Some feel it is a better leader; whether it be a republican or democrat does not matter. People look for a leader to guide them during these troubling times.

Perhaps individuals are looking in all the wrong places to solve what they consider the real problems in the world. Where are the leaders who will show the way? They are all within us. It is time to step forward and say no more of this or that. It is time to return to your ways; the ways that made each of you great individuals. It is time for each of you to find what is right; what is in the best interest for all instead of a few. It is time to remember who you are. You are the ones you seek.

Each of you holds a piece of the puzzle within you. It is the piece needed to be played to bring the world back into order. It is the balance of the male and female within you. It is one of a balance within that allows a person to bring that balance and peace into the outer world. It is time to bring joy and harmony back into yourselves and to others. Joy and peace come from within; it is a gift you give yourself. When there are enough who hold and radiate the joy and peace within, then it will extend into the outer world. When there is joy, peace, harmony and the desire to hold that within yourselves, then others also choose more readily to hold the same.



It is time people change their focus to what they truly desire and wish to manifest. Humans have been used to worry and fear. Worry is an aspect of the fear which is a lower vibration in frequency. How can peace and love prevail in a world of lower vibratory frequency? As the United States moves into its holiday season as other nations will too, then why not celebrate what you do have? Make the time to be thankful on the day set aside for giving thanks. Give the gift of love this season. It goes with everything.

For many, this day is just a time to connect with family. Perhaps you are one who does not look forward to being with grumpy grandpa or arguing Allen. How about setting the mood ahead of time. Before going to relatives who have been frantically preparing for the meal and gathering, how about creating your own perfect day. One way to do this is to take some time to sit quietly, whether in meditation, prayer, contemplation or whatever you may choose to call it. As you sit, focus on your heart and feel the comfort and love within. Once there, create your perfect day of gathering with family.

You might wish to fill the room or home with a calming color of blue. Once that settles in, see or intend to see each family member individually and send them your heart-felt love. You can even send your love before you to fill the home. See grumpy grandpa as the great grandfather you always wanted him to be or arguing Allen as accepting and agreeable Allen. Send each relative the love you wish for them to have and be. Create in your mind what you wish to have in your life. How do you want it to play out?



Once you have created your best case scenario and sent each of them love, then prepare yourself. Hold the love you have for each person as you greet them. You might choose to write out a message of gratitude to each person and ask the angels to deliver it to the individual’s soul, telling each person the importance they played in your life and how they affected you in a positive way. Remember, you chose your family for a reason. What did you learn from them? Pick one or two items from your written letter to thank each in person at the gathering.

Step beyond all the problems and choose to give thanks for those who have helped to make you who you are today. Maybe grumpy grandpa used to take you camping and gave you a love for nature and an escape from life’s problems. Thank him for how he affected your life. Perhaps arguing Allen helped you to see different sides of a situation and to look deeper to the motivation behind how individuals react or act to various events.

All of you have something to be thankful for this day. Sit in giving thanks for yourself and for your source. Be thankful that you are here at this time to make a difference in the world; for yourself, for others who came before you to make you who you are today, for those who will come after you and for a better world that you choose to leave for them. Know that you create your world and all that is within it. If you do not like what you see, change it within first and your outer world will reflect the change.


Thank you for being; thank you for being who you are and who you came to be. We honor each and every one of you on this day and thank God for each of you.

Archangels Michael, Raphael and Gabriel and Sri Yukteswar

Inexpensive Acts of Love/Kindness (part 2)

Whether one calls it ‘paying it forward’ or an anonymous act, to me these are all acts of love. Hold the feeling of love in your heart. Then use it when you can. These are just a few more suggestions.


Saying “good morning” with a smile to a stranger on your morning walk.



Paying for the movies for the family or individual behind you at the dollar show.



Giving a coupon or gift card to another in the store who could use it more than you.



Saying something positive or giving a smile to the cashier who obviously had a bad day.



As a waiter or waitress, address a woman as ‘miss’ instead of ‘ma’am’. You might even get a better tip.



Honoring a country that respects elders or those having physical challenges by putting them first in a long line at the airport, at banks and other businesses.



Allowing someone else to win because you can, sharing the prize with someone else or giving information to help another even when it means more competition for you.

Showing up with a snowplow after a storm when a neighbor lost her husband or is sick.



When you are feeling down or having a bad day, do something for someone else. It can be a flower, a card with a smiley face, a positive statement to another or sharing something you have with another. No matter how bad your day is, someone else’s may be a lot worse. Doing something for someone else makes you feel better and it is good for your brain.

Wishing you love in all that you do, Mary




Inexpensive Acts of Love/Kindness

People question what they can do to make a difference; something that does not cost a lot. Here are some ideas that do not cost much other than a little time.



Being there for another during times of grief. This may include hugging another when a person needs it or holding another’s hand to comfort the individual when words are not enough. It may be listening to another who just needs someone to hold a space for them so they can sort things out.



Telling another “thank you” for making a difference in your life.



Embracing a stranger with a smile.



Helping another at the grocery store; such as one in a wheelchair, one struggling to get an item or asking your older neighbor if he or she needs anything from the store. Humming a tune as you walk can also lighten another’s day.



Offering to take someone to the doctor who cannot drive or is afraid to go alone.



Giving your seat to another when you see them struggle standing up.



Offering to feed one’s pet for a few days in an emergency.

These are only a few ways to express your love/kindness toward others. There are so many more. As we come together through the internet and via other means, perhaps we can also look around us in our daily lives and make a difference to a stranger, friend or neighbor. They may be part of your community in the future.

Wishing you love in all that you do, Mary



Acts of Love


We usually think acts of love involve doing something for another. Before one can give love to another, one must love oneself; you cannot give to another what you do not have for yourself. If you are a caretaker or an empath, it is even more important to care of yourself first. Here are some suggestions:


Taking time to just be and relax when needed.



Taking a bubble bath.



Turning the phone, television, and internet off to contemplate.



Treating yourself to a regular massage.



Buying flowers for yourself.



Challenging yourself to try something different or learn something new.



Laughing at yourself or something you did. This takes you into a higher vibration and a much better alternative to sadness or being down.



Cleaning things out and getting rid of the old. This also lightens up and expands your energy.


Helping another just because you can. This makes you and the other person feel better.



Being in nature. Take a walk, sit on a hillside or explore a new place away from your hectic life. Watch and listen to nature; it can teach you how to live and it also assists in clearing your negativity. It’s a great reset.



Letting your inner child play. Whether it is playing in the sand, painting or whatever else your inner child likes to do. Ask your inner child what he/she would enjoy doing with you.

When you show love for yourself through action on a regular basis, you may find that other areas of life flow more and life’s problems aren’t as big as they seem.

Wishing you love, joy and peace in your life, Mary
