THE PERFECT STRANGER

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, GOD'S REALITY

This morning's Musical DLG   (Download from God  ) came in the form of several songs. This rarely ever happens but it does happen every now and again. Keep in mind that I do not wake up with an alarm clock. Every morning, Sunday through Monday I wake up between 4:30 AM and 6:00 AM to the sound of music playing in my head, which I call a Musical DLG   (Download from God  ) and it is the Musical DLG   that inspires me to write whatever I write or do whatever I do on any given day. There is no audible music playing that anyone else can hear. It's just something I hear in my own head. This morning it sounded as though the channel was being switched to various stations using a radio knob. I heard Beautiful Stranger by Madonna . . . Strangers in the Night by Frank Sinatra . . . Stranger in a Strange Land (remastered) by U2 . . . The Stranger by Billy Joel . . . Goodbye Stranger by Supertramp . . . and then finally . . . Don't Talk to Strangers by Rick Springfield. It seemed my DLG was searching for the 'perfect stranger' song. Not to mention, it's obvious the theme here was about strangers. What intuitively came to me was how one could actually become the perfect stranger.

Not all strangers are bad but that's certainly what we are taught to tune into. There's a lot of fear imbedded in our spirit that someone doing bad things might rub off on us. Never mind the fact that we might be strong enough and smart enough for our Goodness to actually rub off on them. Well that's a novel idea! Actually I didn't come up with the idea, it's a Jesus thing! He actually hung out with some fairly miserable people and positively influenced them. It's not like His mom was saying, "I don't want you hanging out with those people. They aren't Good for you!" So if you are capable of wonderful ways of influence, then come on baby, take it to the streets and rub off on someone that might need a positive reminder in their Life. Just open the door for someone or ask a stranger what they think of the color paint you are picking out. Whatever! Acknowledging someone else's existence where they may otherwise have felt invisible until you came along can literally change, shake up and brighten their world. And it'll make you feel Good too. You can't beat that sweet deal.

Think about what life would be like if we strived to become 'the perfect stranger'. What if you saw yourself through the eyes of others and that led you to be a better person (stranger). What if you did this to improve upon yourself, rather than improved yourself to impress others. Start with YOU! I'll bet the ranch that if you did that, then you would simply be following the Golden Rule -- 'Do unto others as you would like them to do unto you.' Ten bucks says strangers would be nicer and more helpful to you simply because you would be more aware of their existence and you'd be more approachable. Certainly a lot bad strangers have this nice thing down cold and trick a lot of people. It's called, "The wolf in sheep's clothing." But we aren't talking about them . . . we're talking about you . . . the perfect stranger.

GOD'S REALITY

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, NOTHING HAPPENS, WITHOUT YOU

This morning's Musical DLG   (Download from God  ) by Barry White called, "You're The First, My Last, My Everything," was such a gift! And it came to me right at about 10 minutes before I got out of bed and just moments before the 'east coasters' started ringing the phone. Talk about Divine Perfect Timing! It's a Good thing I'm an early bird. This particular song is one of those tune's that puts me straight in alignment with God. I slip right into . . . Me and God mode. We have a history together.

I think this song speaks volumes all by itself without too much prompting or storytelling on my part. Although I do want to share this little tidbit. When this song typically comes to me, which is quite often, it comes as a conversation with God. In other words, He is speaking to me and I am speaking to Him. You'll notice in the lyrics below that I put in red when God is speaking to me and I left in black when I was speaking to God. When I hear this song I actually hear the words "Mr. Wonderful" instead of "my kind of wonderful". And where the song normally says, "There's no way they could have made two." Instead I hear, "There's no way, I would have made two."

The most interesting part about the first half of today is that this song actually had to do with nearly every conversation I had with a client or caller so far, in that I was called upon to point out the uniqueness of that particular individual. Folks, if we only knew how unique, special and interesting we all really are and then played that UP! Not only is God my reality, I am also His reality because He physically manifested me. I am real, I am a physical person, I exist, I am unique and I am special simply because there is only one of me on the planet. There is no other me, but me and I Love that about me! I am the only one of me that ever existed and that will ever exist because God made me that way. Since God made me, by shear default that makes me interesting, unique and special. And so are YOU! When you think about it, what on earth more could you need as validation that you were created deliberately and on purpose and that you are here simply because God wanted you to be here. Since you are in fact His reality, then play yourself UP!

YOU'RE THE FIRST, THE LAST, MY EVERYTHING
by Barry White
(Lyrics below the video)

(The first two paragraph are usually spoken at the beginning

(God speaking to me)
We got it together didn't we
We've definitely got our thing together, don't we baby?
Isn't that nice?
I mean really when you really sit and think about it
isn't it really really nice?

(Me speaking to God)
I can easily feel myself slipping in more and more ways
in a simple world of my own
Nobody but You ... and me
We got it together Baby

(Spoken part is over and music begins here!)

(Me speaking to God)
The first, the last, my everything
And the answer to all my dreams
You're my Sun, my Moon, my Guiding Star
My kind of Mr. Wonderful, that's what you are

(God speaking to me)
I know there's only, only one like you
There's no way I would have made two

(Me speaking to God)
You're all I'm living for
Your love I'll keep for evermore
You're The First, your The Last, my Everything

(Me speaking to God)
And with you I've found so many things
A love so new only you could bring
Can't you see it's you
You make me feel this way
You're like a fresh morning dew on a brand new day
I see so many ways that I
Can love you til' the day I die
You're my reality, yet I'm lost in a-a-a-a dream
You're The First, The Last, my Everything

(God speaking to me)
I know there's only, only one like you
There's no way I would have made two
Girl you're my reality

(Me speaking to God)
But I'm lost in a-a-a-a dream
You're The First, you're The Last, MY EVERYTHING!

(God speaking to me)
You and me baby,

(Me speaking to God)
Just you . . and me
You are The First, The Last, my Everything.

NOTHING HAPPEN'S, WITHOUT YOU

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, EVERYTHING'S AMAZING, NOBODY'S HAPPY

This morning I was sitting here at the dining room table, surrounded by windows, overlooking the landscape of my new residence I wrote about yesterday. Then suddenly, KABAMMO! A bird slammed into the window and then flew away. I was startled nearly out of my pants! The bird slammed into the window right where my head was. I jumped up and looked out the window to see if the bird was lying on the ground injured, then I went outside and looked around. I sat down at the picnic table and stared at the spot where the bird slammed into and reminded myself that in Native American Animal Medicine, birds are messengers from Great Spirit (God). I said outloud, "Okay, what are you trying to get through to me." After all, the bird took some desperate measures trying to message me by coming straight through the window directly into my head. The bird was actually risking its Life for ME! What was so important that this kamikaze bird would risk its Life for me? It was a very touching and Loving moment from Great Spirit as I remembered what I had been thinking about at the exact moment of impact. Then it came to me . . nothing happens, without you. Whatever my reaction or participation is to anything in Life, then that is my contribution. Life will then play out from that point on, as it always does, taking into full account my choice and influence until my reaction or participation changes direction.

I think the rules in Life are pretty dang basic. It's not so much blaming and shaming yourself but merely taking responsibility for your choice and reaction. I don't think there is any big mystery in Life about how to live a happy Life. It's merely a choice. And I don't think God purposefully yanks our chain or tries to confuse us just to give us a hard time. We know darn Good and well how to yank our own chain or someone else's for that matter. We are 'the masters' at giving ourselves a hard time and do a bang up job all by ourselves by twisting and manipulating something simple into something hard and ridiculous. Wake up! . . . nothing happens, without you! If you want to take things personally and get your feelings hurt, then go ahead, you can certainly do that. It will eventually serve you sooner or later, once you get, the get. And therein lies the juice in Life. Squeeze it out folks and make it taste Good. Squeeze it out! Make everything in Life work for you. No matter what strains your spirit, then squeeze and twist until the juice literally flows out. YUMMY-LICIOUS!

So there you have it, nothing happens, without you. Get out your Natal Charts folks and look at each house because there are twelve houses that mean twelve different things. If nothing is happening the way you want in a particular house, then admit your contribution and influence. What will you do different from this point forward? After all, nothing happens, without you.

EVERYTHING'S AMAZING AND NOBODY'S HAPPY

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

This has been one fantastic, surprising and expected year for me on so many levels. Yes, I did say "expected" because I did expect this year to change my Life and I've been preparing for it since 2001. Remember the pancake flipping over from the 5 expected lightning bolt strikes that I wrote about in your Weekly Horoscope? Well, it's interesting how some people have chosen to be frightened of these 5 lightning bolts. As for myself, I've been preparing for only Goodness and my personal Life has literally flipped over like a pancake. And it's really not just the 5 lightning bolt strikes because it is also the 'Year of the Rat (Mouse)' and when Jupiter is in Aquarius, which benefits ME!

Folks, when you absolutely know that certain planetary influences are going to shake up your chart, then why the heck not prepare for it in a really fantastic way so that you can squeeze all of the wonderful juice out of it? If you don't prepare, then you get nothing. I write about this all the time. It's not enough to just clean out your closet, donate your belongings, stop drinking latte's, exercise more and then expect Goodness to fall out of the sky. Heck, that's easy change when you think about it. If you want to taste the real juice in Life, then you have to clean up your spirit, adjust some personality flaws and stop clinging to the one(s) that hurt you. And even a little gratitude would go a very long way. Now that's the kind of change that will stimulate wonderful change in your Life. If you can just imagine how hard it is to change yourself, then you will see just how hard it is to change someone else. I've been expecting this year since 2001 and that's the great thing about astrology. It prepares you! Sadly, when we humans want something, we want it right now. Then we settle for less due to a lack of patience and then force situations that really aren't working for us.

EXAMPLE --- We even settle into relationships that don't feel Good or give us what we really desire. Somehow we tell ourselves that a relationship is working, when it's not. We tell ourselves that it's Love, when it's not. We tell ourselves that we're happy, when we're not. And we tell ourselves that this is the one, when they are not. Then we end up breeding and infecting more unhappiness in other areas of our Life simply because we are forcing a relationship. A bad choice in relationships could effect money, family, residence, partying, health and food. Get the picture? Then nothing is Good enough, fast enough, strong enough or big enough.

Folks, if you know certain planetary influences will be in your favor, then why not prepare and take advantage of them? During a reading I can tell someone until I'm blue in the face that a certain planetary influence will benefit them but unless they DO SOMETHING then it means nothing. Heck, dynamite is nothing unless you ignite it! While I was preparing my spirit, correcting my personality and simply walking away from the past without looking back, I was setting myself up for the personal Life I always wanted. Oh, I was deliberate and on purpose alright! I was also spending a lot of time working on this website and ram-jamming in my professional Life. And the biggest part of this movement was to simply choose to happiness and gratitude. Happy and grateful, that's pretty much it. What truly amazes me is how firmly and passionately a person will cling to being miserable and then somehow claim to be happy. What's up with the struggle? Why do people dig on that stuff? It honestly blows my mind. How does one find the energy to be miserable? To tell you the Truth, I've always been too lazy to be miserable. The first clue that it isn't working is . . . it isn't working!

I can tell you from personal experience that just choosing to be happy in my 'self,' grateful for everything I have and everything that I am, have set me up for what I am now experiencing. And so it goes . . . 'The Scorpion King' and I decided to couple our energies. The coupling of energies that I knew was going to happen 8 years ago between me and my future Mr. Wonderful (that I didn't know 8 years ago) . . happened. Just like a pancake, my personal life flipped over and now looks completely different than what I knew it to be just weeks ago. I've gone from city living, to country living. I've gone from the sound of the city, to the sounds of nature. I've gone from a lake in the park, to a lake in the backyard. I've gone from stray cats in street, to raccoons and deer in the yard. In other words, my outdoor nature has landed in 'real estate heaven'. I'm tellin' you folks, the lightning bolt pancake flip could not look any more different in my world and it can look just as wonderfully different for you too, if and when, you are open to it. Interesting enough, even though I expected it, I was caught a little off guard. (winky wink)

This morning I awoke with this video from Youtube on my mind and I just had to share it with you. If you need an attitude adjustment to get you started in the right direction for your pancake flip, maybe this video will help. It's called, "Everything's Amazing and Nobody's Happy!"

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, A BOLD AND JUICY LIFE

If you've been keeping up with your Weekly Horoscope, then you know there are so many important planetary shifts occurring right now that a change in circumstances has to occur. That's a Good thing, especially if Goodness is what you expect. Heck, I always expect Good things to occur in Life . . makes sense to me. Think about it, why in the world would I (or anyone else) be open to anything but Goodness.

Many of you know from my past writings that the word 'potential' happens to be one of my least favorite words because all it means is you haven't done it yet. I was talking to a friend one day about her frustration with this man she was dating. I asked her why she was attracted to him. She said, "I don't know. I guess because he has potential." I said, "Really? Then why are you dating him?" In silent confusion she just looked at me with that wonderful question mark on her face. She was standing in the question. I told her the difference between the type of man she is attracted to and the type of man that I am attracted to is that she is attracted to a man with 'potential' and I am attracted to a man with 'no potential'. While her man would be sitting, my man would be moving. While her man would be planning, my man would be achieving. While her man would be intending, my man would be fulfilling. While her man would be settling, my man would be making it all happen. (winky wink)

This brings me to another of my least favorite words, which is anticipation. I don't anticipate anything. In other words, I don't sit and wait for these things to happen, to me. I don't wait for money to fall out of the sky, I've never waited for my perfect job to jump out at me and I don't wait for someone to come sweep me off my feet. I do things in a way that set me up only for Good things to follow. I co-Create with God . . He's the big "C" in co-Create and I'm the little "c". Me and God? We've got a history together. (winky wink) At all times I am doing my part in the co-Creation process.

As a human being, I am supposed to create, produce, manufacture, explore, generate, construct, build, utilize, cause, fabricate, make, crop, engineer, formulate, erect, assemble, form, discover, find out, ascertain, seek, find, discern, realize and notice. Get the picture? I could go on and on and on. Folks, if I'm away from my computer, you can best believe that I'm out there on the planet being a human being and doing all of the things I just typed and doing it with God. I'm co-Creating!

Instead of sitting in anticipation, I stand in expectation. I'm out there living my spiritual progression path as God wants me to do. I'm ram-jammin' folks! When you are out there doing all of those wonderful human things that you are designed to do AND asking questions, then it brings in the element of preparation. When you are pushing, it's a Law of Physics that energy pushes back. When you push at the Universe, it has to answer you. It's one huge algebraic equation. Whatever you do on one side of the equation, has to happen on the other side of the equation. If you are not doing your part on this side of the Universal (God) equation, then guess what? NOTHING happens! Now get out there, do all of the things I listed above and then you can call me on the telephone and tell me how YOU just rocked your own world. And THAT'S what you can expect!

THE CLOUDS ARE PARTING

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, A BOLD AND JUICY LIFE

Good morning everyone! Sorry I've been a bit MIA (missing in action) over the past couple of days. I'm experiencing a huge wonderful shift in my personal life and I mean HUGE, which all began the night Mercury went direct on September 29, 2009. It's been action packed, which makes sense because Jupiter has also been in the midst of going direct and it finally goes direct today, October 12, 2009. Actually, a planet is referred to as 'in its storm' when it is in the midst of going retrograde or in the midst of going direct. It moves 'out of its shadow' when it gets back to the same degree it was at the moment it went retrograde. So Mercury leaves its shadow this week on Wednesday, October 14, 2009 and Jupiter goes direct tonight, Monday, October 12, 2009. It's all very interesting for me because I am in my Jupiter Return this year, which means Jupiter returns to the same planet and sign (Jupiter in Aquarius) that it was when I was born. Jupiter in Aquarius is THE MOST freedom loving planet (Jupiter) in THE MOST freedom loving sign (Aquarius). Needless to say, every single thing I do is based on how it may impact or influence my freedom. I kid you not! Now even though for some it may not seem as though the clouds are parting, I can assure you, the clouds are most certainly parting and abundance opens up for all of us in the area of our chart when Jupiter would be moving through Aquarius.

FULL MOON IN ARIES

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, A BOLD AND JUICY LIFE

Sunday, October 4, 2009 there is a Full Moon in Aries. Now keep in mind that the Moon rules the emotions and in the sign of aggression (Aries). This is a powerful and upsetting Full Moon with a high potential for aggressive behavior (war, criminals and even physical abuse). Think about it, this Full Moon is in Aries and a Full Moon is when the Sun is in one sign (Libra in this case) and the Moon in its direct opposite sign (Aries in this case). Libra and Aries are opposing signs. The Full Moon is always opposing signs (Sun and Moon) which is what makes our emotions highly emotional during a Full Moon. It's just not women on their monthly cycle who are emotional. (winky wink) Men are emotional too! Libra is the sign of couples, committments, marriages, partnerships, Love romances, court, law and justice. Aries is the sign of war, aggression, sport, rough play, head games and severe competition. This Full Moon can invoke domestic abuse, crimes of passion, jealousy, war, explosions between factions, etc. Keep it cool folks, just keep it cool and walk away. Keep your distance with the one you Love today or there will be a heated battle. Check your Natal Chart for the two houses of Libra and Aries so you will know which two houses affect you.

A BOLD AND JUICY LIFE

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, DO GOOD AND AVOID EVIL

This morning's Musical DLG   (Download from God  ) by Miley Cyrus called, "The Climb" is a wonderful motivational song and I couldn't agree with the words more. You've probably heard the old saying, "It's not the destination, it's the journey." Well, this song is basically saying the exact same thing.

Often times when moving through a challenge we want to hurry up and figure out the lesson but then we end up forgetting about the moment . . 'the climb' so to speak. Now that's what you call, "living in the moment." Whenever I run into a really tough challenge I call my friend, "H". Her name is Henrietta but I call her "H" because her name is too dang long to say. In the midst of a challenge I want to talk to someone who can look at something without drama and negativity and appreciate the climb. "H" is perfect to call in those times because her response typically comes with a childlike appreciative giggle, sometimes even a belly laugh, followed by the statement, "Well Good!" "H" understands, as well as I do, that in the midst of the challenge is where the juice is located. Oh yeah, that's the really Good stuff, not to mention it takes the pressure off when you are set on squeezing out all of the juice that Life has to offer.

Folks, Life is as bold and juicy as you make it. Just because you run into a challenge does not mean that Life is over or that it's horrible by any stretch. Believe me, if something feels horrible, then I'm certainly not going to squirm and tighten the noose. Heck no, I'm going to relax my body and slip through the noose under my own power and weight. Truth be known . . I can be too dang lazy to squirm and cause myself more trouble but that's just me. I just don't dig on struggle. There are challenges now and there will be more challenges in the future but as the saying goes, "It's not what happens to you, it's how you handle it." This song carries a lot of weight and the Truth is . . you can do it! You can! If you don't want to that's one thing but the fact is, you absolutely can create your own bold and juicy Life.
