Are you feeling distraught over our world situation?

Do you wonder what and how to help when life is already filled to the max?

Me too!

Then I remembered  Leigh Stivers’ story in

Acupuncture for Your Soul, A Collection of Life Changing Aha! Moments ( page 47)

He shares with the reader how he circumvented a potentially devastating situation with this ancient Hawaiian love and forgiveness prayer


 I love you
I am sorry

Please forgive me
Thank you
Our Karma is done and complete.

This means: I love you for this opportunity in our lives to heal all that pulls us together. I am sorry for all the reasons and circumstances that pull us Continue reading

Good Morning Dear Readers,

There is no greater agony in life than bearing an untold story inside you. – Maya Angelou

Take a trip thru your own “timeline.”  Watch the movie of your life as an objective viewer!  Review again to sense what parts evoke emotions such as joy, fear, failure, success, excitement, courage etc.  You get the idea?

In a gestalt fashion make lists and who knows – a story of YOU, Your life journey, Your life experiences – Your Aha! Moments! will evolve!

Most of us rush thru our lives and all of a sudden the curtain comes down and it is over!  So, Young or Old take time now to reflect on what you Continue reading

Good Morning Dear Readers,


Clear Canvas

By:  Rae Jacob

Another clear canvas of life is gifted to me

What will I do with it?

What shall I paint on this day – this time?

Shall I look with colorful and sparkling attention and expectation?

🙂 Or 🙁

Wonderful that is my prerogative to think as I chose.

No one forces me to think this way or that way –

Or do they?

That is just it – if others “force” me to think a certain way, at some level, I have allowed it!

Easy way out, huh?

Enter the “finger” of blame again, where it is not my fault.

You have inner strength – use it!

Hang on to yourself, your Source, your Continue reading
