Third Eye Chakra (Companion)

Third Eye Chakra ~ SoulCollage® (Companion) Hummingbird Totem Animal

I am the One who sees.
I am the One who moves between the physical and the mental realities with lightning quick speed.
I am the One that hovers between the conscious and unconscious.

I give you intuition and wisdom.
I give you imagination and clairvoyance.

I want you to give me self-reflection and healing through mental projections.

You will remember when your intuition flashes before your mind's eye and gives you the insight to perceive your Divine Intelligence.

Heart Chakra (Companion)

Heart Chakra ~ SoulCollage® (Companion) Butterfly Totem

I am the One that has the ability to transform.
I am the One that moves between this world and the next.
I am the One that leads you through the gateway of your soul and toward the Source of Divine Love.

I give you compassion and healing.
I give you acceptance of your Self.

I want you to come out of the cocoon of delusion.
I want you to transform your feelings of fear and anger into love and joy.

You will remember when you leave the isolation of your comfort zone and spread your wings and fly from the darkness into the Light.


Usually the peace protesters (aka Ladies in Black) go home at one after an hour of silent vigil, and the flag waving hawk leaves soon after. Every Friday it's always the same. But today an old guy with a beard and a bicycle who would normally look like a homeless person and maybe he is, has stayed and stayed and stayed on the same corner as the flag waver, with his "Honk for peace" sign, playing his boom box with Lynard Skynard or some such nonsense but seemingly taunting the flag waver to go home. They're both out there still like two people in a staring contest each refusing to back down

I make my way into the bank and I come out and see a white feather on the sidewalk. I pick it up and walk across the street. The flag waver says hello and I reply politely then I hand the white feather to the peace guy and we share a knowing glance.

He's Going to Run

Barack Obama has made it official. According to his latest senatorial newsletter, he is forming a presidential exploratory committee. I can't wait to see what happens next. I've been getting Yahoo alerts everyday about him, and the buzz is so hot, I seriously doubt anyone has missed it. But I am very excited. I, for one, plan to to give him a chance and see what proposals he can come up with for the enormous challenges this country faces. But today, hope is alive and well.

Read it for yourself.

Happy Birthday Guruji

I may go far, farther than the farthest star, but I will be Thine always! Devotees may come, devotees may go, but I will be Thine always.

I may bound over the billows of many lives, forlorn beneath the skies of loneliness, but I will be Thine always.

The world may leave Thee, while engrossed with Thy playthings, but I will be Thine always. Thou mayest take everything away that Thou gavest me, but I will be Thine always.

Death, disease, and trials may riddle and rend me, and yet, while the embers of memory shall flicker, look into my dying eyes and they will mutely say, "I will be Thine always."

My voice may become feeble, fail and forsake me, and yet, with the silent, bursting voice of my soul, I will whisper to Thee, "I am Thine always!"

Whispers from Eternity
by Paramhansa Yogananda

The Tiger Within

The Tiger Within by Jim Warren

A self-taught painter, Jim Warren defies artistic category. A Los Angeles newspaper described him as "somewhere between Dali and Rockwell." And though Jim's style is hard to pin down , his flair for the unique - yes, even the unusual - never detracts from the impact, spirit, and emotion that he packs into every piece. Jim's artistic career hit the fast track when he won first place at the prestigious Westwood Art Show in 1975. He subsequently took additional awards, and then in 1980 blasted into art's highest circles by winning the Grammy Award for the Best Album (cover) for his work on Bob Seger's mega-hit Against The Wind. Today Jim is considered one of the best cover artists in the country, and his work has graced hundreds of book covers, album covers, and movie posters. Several years ago Jim committed his talents to promoting environmental themes and issues. One recent image of Jim's - Earth, Love It or Lose It, is a nationwide smash itself. Other environmental works typify his theme of harmony and coexistence between man and nature. "Each person sees something different in my paintings that relates specifically to them. That, to me, is what art is all about."

Writers Note: I really felt an affinity for this painting when I found it on a greeting card many years ago. I saved it because I never found a use for the card's message. Now that I have begun doing SoulCollaging I have found the perfect use for it. This painting really speaks to my inner self.
