Shooting Star would be doing this Full Moon ceremony on her own as her sister, Snowy Owl, had travelled to the Council of Twelve to meet with the Star Walkers, Arista and Dauphin. The day before the young women had been to visit The Shaman and he told Snowy Owl the Star Walkers had some important information to share about the New Moon that was occurring in fifteen sunrises. She immediately went to the Standing One who guarded the magic feather capes put hers on and took flight into the Universe.

Shooting Star had done the ceremonies alone before but always felt unsure. As she walked the path to the Star Temple she thought “wouldn’t it be nice if Runs With The Salmon was there waiting for me.” The young man was now living on the other side of Turtle Island but the Ripe Berries Time was his birth month and sometimes he returned to his own tribe to celebrate. As Shooting Star entered the Star Temple she heard his voice greeting her with enthusiasm. Runs With was just as happy to be here as Shooting Star was happy to see him. The friends smiled at each other as they settling in the Sacred Circle to hear Sister Moon’s message.

Sister Moon said “You are the people Grandfather Sun and I wanted to be here to receive this message. This is the Friendship Full Moon to honour and appreciate those people in your life who accept you unconditionally. Shooting Star the Animal Totem who is guiding me is your personal guide, Otter. He reminds us what is of true value. He asks you all to be joyful as you share your hopes, wishes and dreams with those of like mind. He asks you to thank those people who are helping you to build the New Earth where everyone feels connected in love.”

“And Runs With, your Animal Totem guide the Salmon, is working with Grandfather Sun. The Salmon clan work together with determination and perseverance to create the new. At this Full Moon it is time for the two leggeds to come together and make a commitment to creating a new way of being with each other and the world. It is time for them to remember who they really are, a spark of the Divine. Great Mystery has been waiting a long time for the two leggeds to awaken. The Time is now.”

Shooting Star and Runs With thanked Sister Moon for her message and then thanked each other for their special friendship. Together they knew they could change the world.

Aquarius is the sign of friendship, group activities, and humanitarian causes. It is associated with the collective consciousness but also individual freedom. It is also the sign that rules the sciences, astronomy, innovation, and invention. Like all Air Signs it is dualistic but in a positive way if we can find a balance. Aquarius is connected to the healing energy of the Universe and all the modalities that channel that energy so balance and wholeness can be experienced. It is also that sign that rules astrology, the planetary dance. The key phrase for Aquarius is “I KNOW” not in an intellectual way but INTUITIVELY. It is that voice in your head that tells you when you should not do something and directs you to do something else. Aquarius is Cosmically Connected. It is the sign associated with sharing our spiritual gifts with the Universe and this Full Moon is asking us to do that so the world will change. Heaven knows it needs to.

The ruler for the Moon at this Lunation is Uranus at 16 degrees Aries. This planet is called the Awakener and in Aries supports us to break through to the authentic self and at the same time supporting others to do the same. Uranus is trine the Sun (our identity) at 18 degrees Leo and Mercury (our thoughts) at 20 degrees Leo. The sign of Leo is the ego or the heart and is the ruler of the Sun. Uranus (breakthrough) is sextile the Moon (Soul) at 18 degrees Aquarius (freedom). Trines are ease and flow and sextiles are opportunities. Easy energy. BUT the Universe always throws us a curve ball.

Before Uranus was sighted in 1781 Saturn (limitation and restriction) had rulership over Aquarius. At this Full Moon he is at 16 degrees Scorpio (release and transformation) AND SQUARE (finding new ways of doing things) the Sun and Mercury in Leo (the ego mind) and the Moon in Aquarius (the Cosmic Self). It is a T Square (feeling backed into a corner). The only way out is to embrace the transformational power of Saturn in Scorpio and break free from limitation and restriction. Saturn is inconjunct Uranus so the need to break free is emphasised. The inconjunct aspect asks us to find new ways of doing things because there is no other choice.

As much as the Universe throws us curves it also is giving us an easy way out of the T Square. Saturn in Scorpio (healing and release) is trine Chiron (the healer) at 16 degrees Pisces (the Rainbow Bridge to Wholeness). Chiron in Pisces connects us to the ONENESS OF ALL. So maybe this Aquarius Full Moon will wake the ‘‘two leggeds” up and we can all see ourselves in the other. It is time.

The Animal Totems for our current Aquarius Super Full Moon (as our story told us) are Salmon, determination and perseverance to create the new, for the Sun In Leo and Otter, curiosity, playfulness and sharing, for the Moon in Aquarius. The Clan Mother for the Sun in Leo is She Who Heals. She is the guardian of serving the truth and keeper of the healing arts including the plant spirits. She reminds us of the rites of passage, the mysteries of life and death and the eternal Flame of Love which is our Spiritual Essence. Wisdom Keeper is the Clan Mother for the Moon in Aquarius. She is the guardian of the Earth Records, the Stone People and the Planetary Memory. She is the keeper of honouring the truth and sacred points of view. She also reminds us to be thankful for our friendships and at the same time to honour ourselves. For more about these Clan Mothers stories read the 13 Original Clan Mothers or/and Earth Medicine, both by Jamie Sams.

This Full Moon activates the Tarot Constellation of Strength; the principle of Courage and Self Esteem. The theme for the Sun in Leo is courage of your convictions and acknowledging the strength within. It is also about being in your Compassionate Heart. The Moon in Aquarius reminds us to find the courage to be ourselves and acknowledge our connection to Source, however we define that to be. It is also asking us to be anchored in our Soul Essence Self as we walk our Spiritual Destiny Path and share our gifts of healing with those we love and the world.

The 5th Ray of Concrete Knowledge and Healing guides us at this Full Moon. It is the Ray of the Healer. The Archangels we can call on are Raphael, The Shinning one Who Heals and Mary, who is the embodiment of Divine Nurturing Love. Together they will help you heal and release what no longer serves you. The Sun in Leo is the 1st Ray of Divine Will and Power. The Archangels working with us are Michael, spiritual destiny guide, and Faith, trust and belief in self. This Full Moon is about connecting to Source, both your Inner Spiritual Essence and Creator and Great Mystery. Then you will have the support you need to continue to walk your Spiritual Destiny Path and shine your light into the darkness.

Just a last note. The Super Moon is when Luna is closer to Earth than usual. This is her closest approach in 2014 (although the Full Moon of Sept 08 is also a Super Moon just not quite as close). This Full Moon of Friendship is asking us all to thank and bless the friends in our lives who are also there with love and support.

Full Moon blessings to all,
Dale

Aquarius Full Moon 8-10-14 Is A Supermoon by Kelley Rosano

The Aquarius Full Moon on August 10 is a Aquarius Moon is a Supermoon Super Moon. It is one in a series of five Supermoons this year. This makes the Full Moon extra potent and powerful being so close to the Earth. Full Moons bring to your conscious awareness what has laid hidden. What we may have overlooked or not known can become crystal clear. This Full Moon could be an emotional roller coaster ride. It is an opportunity to stand in your truth and rise above the drama. Ground yourself daily. Do what balances you. Step back and do not react when curve balls are thrown at you. Be proactive and not reactive. This will empower you to be effective. You have no control over what other people say or do. Your point of power lies in what you think and do. Own you power. Your power is in the present in this moment.
  • What do you need to change?
  • What have you been tolerating?
  • What supports your balance?
Both Saturn and Uranus are the rulers of Aquarius. On the one hand, you have Uranus in harmony with the Aquarius Full Moon. This aspect invites creativity and courage. On the other hand, Saturn is challenging both lights (the Sun and the Moon.) This can bring into play fear and caution. This is a weird energy. One says stop. The other says go. Also, Saturn and Uranus are in a tense awkward angle. This energy can create tension in your body. One part of you wants to be free to change. The other part of you can be scared to take action. The result is discord. Practice Extreme Self Care. Take good care of you. This is a good time to get a massage. Do what releases your stress. Don’t bite off more than you can chew.
  • What are your real responsibilities?
  • What tasks can you eliminate?
  • What are you doing to reduce stress?
The Sun is in creative Leo. Leo reminds you that you are a unique individual. You have come to Earth at this momentous time to share your special gifts with the world. You are here to shine your light. Be your authentic self. Be love. Share your essence. You are to demonstrate your creative self-expression. Aquarius is your need for community. The group you feel is your soul family. Often, people are born to karmic families. For instance, family who taught you that love is pain. Love is conditional. None of this is love. This is fear. Many people find their soul family in the friends. Aquarius reminds you that we are all family. You do not earn or deserve love. Love just is. Love flows to you daily from Creator. You are loved. All Are One.

Venus struts into Leo on August 12. Venus is the Goddess of Love. Venus in Leo encourages both true love and romance. You are to express your love in high style. This energy invites love, beauty and creativity into your life. You could be in love with love. Love you.

Mercury is made stronger when he enters his home sign Virgo on August 15. This will sharpen your mind. It will help to ground your energy. Study the details and do your homework. This will empower you to act effectively. You can work with precision on any task.

Venus and Jupiter unite on August 18. This aspect could open your heart with optimism and inspiration. This is a brilliant astrological event. This also brings the opportunity to increase your prosperity and abundance. Mark your calendar. This is one of the best events of the year. Wherever Leo lands in your natal birth chart is where you are being blessed with love, abundance and expansion.

The Sun brings us back down to earth when it enters Virgo on August 23. All the thinking big you did in Leo can now be put to the test in Virgo. Virgo is the sign of integration and wholeness. Virgo empowers you to apply yourself in practical approaches to your dreams.
  • What would you dare to do if you knew you could not fail?
  • What action steps can you take to make your goal work?
  • What is holding you back?
The Aquarius SuperMoon message is to take good care of you. These are crazy days. You don’t know what to expect next. It is easy to get off balance. Do what supports your balance. Use your intuition. Trust your gut instincts. Love you more than the need for approval. Strengthen your boundaries. Do not walk away from yourself. Accept the real you. Don’t hide your light. Shine your light. Love you more than the need for others to support you. You support you. Goddess will support you. God has unlimited abundance. What you need is inside of you. Go to Goddess for your abundance. Accept who you are. Accept other people for who they are. Merge with your Soul Self and you will be successful. Be creative. Be wise as the serpent and harmless as the dove. Get daily physical exercise. This will help to release your tension and anxiety. This is not the astrology for being sedentary. You want to be building your strength. Go outdoors. Breathe the fresh air. Allow Mother Nature to nurture you. She can heal you. Release what no longer serves you. Align yourself with what you want. Don’t allow anyone including you to get in your way. Be unstoppable. Use the Personal Path Program and you will improve your life.

“Child of mine, I will never do for you that which I know you can do for yourself. I will never rob you of an opportunity to show yourself your ability and talent. I will see you at all times as the capable, effective, powerful creator that you’ve come forth to be. And I will stand back as your most avid cheer-leading section. But I will not do for you that which you have intended to do for yourself. Anything you need from me, ask. I’m always here to compliment or assist. I am here to encourage your growth, not to justify my experience through you.” — Abraham

Love and Peace,

Super Full Moon Sunday August 10th by Lena Stevens At Powerpath

Dear Friends,

Full Moon is Sunday, August 10 at 12:09 PM MDT (M​ountain Daylight Time)

Work with the sun on this day. With conscious focus bring that energy into yourself and embrace the fullness of the masculine and all its qualities. Be receptive to any shifting or healing or clearing of any old patterns around the negative masculine that is possible for you at this time.

This is also a good day to work with fire as a representative of the sun. Light a candle or build a ceremonial fire. Ask the spirit of fire to help you clear out what is not useful in your life regarding old patterns of the masculine. Ask the spirit of fire to kindle that strength and power within you to shine with more chi in your life. Take some kind of action during this time that represents a bigger way of stepping out and being seen.

Blessings,
Lena

Astrological Notes:

Full Moon
Sun in Leo - Moon in Aquarius 18º
Sun and Moon in Leo 3º
Sunday, August 10, 12:09 PM Mountain Time
(Sunday, August 10, 6:09 PM Greenwich Time)

How does the Leo Sun cycle express at its fullest? Through its polar opposite – Aquarius! Both are masculine, yang, fixed signs, Leo of the fire element and Aquarius of the air, they call us through their fixed nature to consolidate our power and manifest in the outer world. Leo wants expression; Aquarius wants freedom.

As a universal sign, Aquarius’ influence is out beyond the personal realms. Here lies the intellectual ability for lightning fast intuition, spontaneous invention and original solutions. Though detached at the personal level, their loving attention comes out in their broader concern for the welfare of the whole group. Our humanitarians and revolutionaries are Aquarians; their compassion is aroused by their connection to a bigger, intuitive picture of the human dilemma.

Uranus rules Aquarius in modern astrology, and Saturn is the former ruler in traditional astrology. Some Aquarians are more Saturnine, more serious, focused and more of the ruthless taskmaster and administrator, while the Uranian Aquarians tend toward the eccentric, unpredictable, platonic, rebellious types. Bottom line, Aquarians value their individuality and freedom and their Saturn influence can keep them from going too far into their chaotic, loner, genius persona. Uranus rules the ankles where we gain flexibility and the electrical impulses in the body where they can be prone to flash illnesses from exhaustion and not listening to their body and emotional cues.

Uranus, Aquarius’ ruler, is all about change – it’s called The Awakener – for good reason. Uranian style is not subtle. It’s sudden, unexpected, and ‘out of the blue’, a lightning bolt. About the time Uranus was discovered many major political revolutions were taking place seeking more democratic values, i.e. the American and French revolutions, electricity was discovered, the Industrial Revolution revamped our agrarian cultures, and the world was set on a new course. The last time (1931-1935) Uranus was in Aries as it is now and was also in exact square with Pluto as it is now, was in the Great Depression. They experienced a closing square at that time and we are now graced with an opening square. It is a time of being birthed into a new awakening. Chaotic? Yes. Highly technological? Yes, reflecting another aspect of the Aquarian/Uranus influence. At this time though, it appears that the Pluto in Capricorn forces (power building by big corporate interests, financial control of democracy) are wielding the biggest influence. Progressive ideas are alive and well in the underground but not yet receiving mainstream, collective support. The last exact Pluto/Uranus square in April brought us the eruption of wars in Ukraine and in the Middle East. We still have exact squares in December and next March 2015 to complete this awakening birth. Use Uranus’ visionary, liberator energies to visualize and anchor at Full Moon how you want your life at the personal, community and collective levels to manifest.

In this Full Moon chart, one ruler, Uranus, trining the Sun supports you in shattering your rut, habits and mental ceiling by turning towards inspiration and independence and touching that sheer exhilaration of expressing your divine uniqueness.

And Saturn, the traditional ruler, in a T-square with the Sun and Moon, all three in fixed signs, Leo, Aquarius, Scorpio, challenges us collectively to look to our deepest patterns of fanaticism and antisocial and detached power use.

Conformity, hierarchy, and authority may present some taunt situations under this Moon. Get clear about where you are abdicating your power to others’ needs and why. Your wild side, rebel, and individual ‘chispa de la vida’ may need some expressing. Strengthen those areas of your life where you express yourself without regard for approval. Aquarius/Uranus has rulership over goals so kick up your clarity and focus, visualize the outcome and eliminate what distracts you from your purpose.

Your friends are one of your most valuable assets and Aquarius rules your friendships. Need some guidance and advice with integrity and groundedness? Seek out your Aquarian friend. Allow some time to appreciate and celebrate (with) your friends as you honor the peak of this Moon cycle!

Indescribable! ♥


I originally posted this song back in April 2008 when I woke up hearing 'God Inspiration Universe'. I was led to this video by Chris Tomlin titled 'Indescribable'. This video and song are AMAZING! This song has been playing in my spirit all day today and it is filling me up with so much JOY! That is why I am re-posting it for my readers who have not been introduced to this song. I love love love the lyrics to this song!

God is TRULY AMAZING! God is the Universe. The Universe lives and breathes in each and every one of us! We are carbon-based lifeforms, carbon units. The Universe expands and contracts. The Universe breathes in and breathes out. If the Universe is made up of Energy, then God is energy and the Source of ALL LIVING things. Connect to His Infinite POWER outlet and allow God to live and breathe LIFE and JOY into you. Jesus (Yahshua) IS the CONDUIT to our Source (God). Jesus (Yahshua) IS the LIVING BREATHING WORD of God, represented by the Holy Spirit who is the BREATH of God that comes to LIVE INSIDE of you. God wants you to TRUST and BELIEVE in His WORD. Yahshua is the Creator God Himself - an omnipresent Spirit Being who manifested Himself as a Human Being. When you receive Jesus (Yahshua) into your HEART, you are welcoming unspeakable joy into your life. Your creative LIGHT will emanate from the core of your being. Choose LIFE! Set yourself FREE from the barrage of limitations and condemnation that comes from this world. Re-connect to your Source and discover who God says you are and His will for your life! God sets the standards for living NOT man. Get to know Him. God wants to embrace you right where you are and love's you as you are. You are a child of the Most High God. God LOVES YOU sooooooo very much! ♥ Say YES, God I need you. Surrendering your life to God is the most freeing experience.

I also want you to think about this for a moment, God created us from the dust of the earth and when we die our bodies return to the dust of the earth. God breathed LIFE, His Spirit into us. God created ALL Living things on the earth. Therefore, wouldn't it make ABSOLUTE SENSE to RESPECT ALL living things INCLUDING the EARTH. I am NOT in any way indicating worship of the earth. I am however encouraging RESPECT. Afterall it is our ONLY HOME. When God told us to take dominion over the earth and everything in it, God means for us to be GOOD SHEPHERDS, CARETAKERS! Not destroyers! Dominion means home, domain, kingdom, sovereign authority, lordship. With this type of power granted unto us, comes great responsibility! NOT ABUSE!

UNI-VERSE = One Song

MeltingEarth created this great video interpretation of the song. I have taken the following from YouTube description from MeltingEarth to share with you.

The song is of course Chris Tomlin's version of Indescribable - and the lyrics are very literal (not very metaphorical - e.g. a river is a river, not freedom). i really tried to stretch the video story in new directions. Much of my inspiration is from Brian Green's Book "The Elegant Universe" (...if you can think of a more God-glorifying name for a book than that - let me know!!)... but also based on my own training. e.g. the cool looking formula's you see are "Maxwell's Equations", and they govern everything about light electricity and magnetism - or "electro-magnetic fields". I studied those four equations for two semesters in my undergrad engineering coursework, but didn't get a very good grade from my "fields" teacher.

From the highest of heights to the depths of the sea
Creation's revealing Your majesty
From the colors of fall to the fragrance of spring
EVERY CREATURE UNIQUE in the song that it sings
All exclaiming Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are AMAZING God
All powerful, untameable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we HUMBLY proclaim
You are AMAZING God
Who has told every lightning bolt where it should go
Or seen heavenly storehouses laden with snow
Who imagined the sun and gives source to its LIGHT
Yet conceals it to bring us the coolness of night
NONE can fathom
Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name
You are AMAZING God
All powerful, untameable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are AMAZING God
You are AMAZING God
Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are AMAZING God
All powerful, untameable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are AMAZING God
Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are AMAZING God
Incomparable, unchangeable
You see the depths of my heart and You love me the same
You are AMAZING God
You are AMAZING God

10 Inspirational Quotes By Leo Buscaglia!

Felice Leonardo "Leo" Buscaglia, Ph.D. (31 March 1924 – 11 June 1998) was an author and motivational speaker, and a professor in the Department of Special Education at the University of Southern California. He was a graduate of Theodore Roosevelt High School (Los Angeles). Leo Buscaglia authored a number of New York Times bestselling inspirational books on love and human reticence on the subject, including The Fall of Freddie the Leaf, Bus 9 to Paradise, Living Loving and Learning, Love, and My Father. In lectures he often protested, in outrage at the comparative absence of writings on the subject, "I got the copyright for love!!!" [source: wikipedia]

10 Inspirational Quotes From Leo Buscaglia
  1. Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise.

  2. Love is always bestowed as a gift - freely, willingly and without expectation. We don't love to be loved; we love to love.

  3. We all need each other.

  4. Don't smother each other. No one can grow in the shade.

  5. What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.

  6. Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.

  7. The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another's, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises.

  8. Death is a challenge. It tells us not to waste time... It tells us to tell each other right now that we love each other.

  9. It is paradoxical that many educators and parents still differentiate between a time for learning and a time for play without seeing the vital connection between them.

  10. The easiest thing to be in the world is you. The most difficult thing to be is what other people want you to be. Don't let them put you in that position.

BONUS
Your talent is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God.

An Exuberant Declaration of Faith

An Exuberant Declaration of Faith
Psalm 27 NKJV
[source: Biblegateway]

1 The Lord is my light and my salvation;
      Whom shall I fear?
      The Lord is the strength of my life;
      Of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked came against me
       To eat up my flesh,
       My enemies and foes,
       They stumbled and fell.
3 Though an army may encamp against me,
       My heart shall not fear;
       Though war may rise against me,
       In this I will be confident.

4 One thing I have desired of the Lord,
       That will I seek:
       That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
       All the days of my life,
       To behold the beauty of the Lord,
       And to inquire in His temple.
5 For in the time of trouble
      He shall hide me in His pavilion;
      In the secret place of His tabernacle
      He shall hide me;
      He shall set me high upon a rock.

6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me;
      Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle;
       I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.

7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice!
      Have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
8 When You said, “Seek My face,”
      My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”
9 Do not hide Your face from me;
      Do not turn Your servant away in anger;
      You have been my help;
      Do not leave me nor forsake me,
      O God of my salvation.
10 When my father and my mother forsake me,
        Then the Lord will take care of me.

11 Teach me Your way, O Lord,
       And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies.
12 Do not deliver me to the will of my adversaries;
       For false witnesses have risen against me,
       And such as breathe out violence.
13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
       That I would see the goodness of the Lord
       In the land of the living.

14 Wait on the Lord;
        Be of good courage,
        And He shall strengthen your heart;
       Wait, I say, on the Lord!

Join Me Down The Rabbit Hole...


This is an 8 minute video clip taken from the movie, "What the Bleep Do We Know". Someone put together a compilation of different segments leading us all to a higher level of understanding and consciousness. Why are we here? Time and space? Enjoy!
"How can any man or woman sin against such a Greatness of mind. How can any one little carbon unit on earth in the back waters, indeed the milky way, the boondocks, betray God Almighty. That is impossible. The height of arrogance is the height of control of those who create God in their own image." ~ From What the Bleep Do We Know 
I can only show you the door... YOU are the one that has to walk through it...

FREE your mind! Expand your level of awareness. Make an effort to remove the limitations that have been placed on you throughout your lifetime. We are finite beings living in an infinite Universe. Dare to step outside of the box of conventionality. You can only grow as a person if you choose to explore outside of your comfort zone and overcome your fears one at a time.

Fear, hate, and discrimination are forms of oppression and bondage. These emotions are what limit our evolution as human beings. They are forms of very low frequency. Meaning negative energy. These emotions subtract from your growth potential.

Our behavior is domesticated and our thinking is conditioned from birth. The authority figures I speak of and who influence us throughout our lifetimes are our parents, family, friends, teachers, community and government. All with the intent to maintain a standard. But who set the standard and which one is correct? Do we dare question the status quo?

Why don't you start first by talking directly to God. There is NO formal way for you to talk to Him. Just talk to Him in private just as you would another person. Trust me, you will start getting ALL of the answers you seek. Then God will reveal to you His standard and NOT the standards that have been set forth by MAN!

There have been several teachers throughout the history of man sent from up above to guide us to re-discover our Higher Self. However, it IS our responsibility to make that effort and re-connect 'WAKE UP' to the Source of our Being, our Existence. God = LOVE, Truth and Light

You have to wonder why HISTORY keeps repeating itself ?!?! People in positions of power will always use our weaknesses and our fears to manipulate, control and destroy the fabric of our Being! We keep looking to authority figures for answers, still unaware that the answers we seek, the TRUTH, lay dormant within ourselves.

Darkness can NOT exist where there IS Light

The Secret To You... ♥


Save this video clip and use it to EMPOWER yourself daily! Begin your day by reading these declarations out loud. In effect, you are saying to the Universe I AM!

We must first learn to love, respect and value ourselves before we can love, respect and value others. Thereby being able to give to others unconditionally. It starts from the inside out.

Sure the current state of affairs may be in turmoil. However, you can choose to be at cause instead of effect. You can decide NOT to become a victim of your circumstances. But to see this as a challenge for you to overcome! You MUST be determined to not let the negative forces that surround you have control over you. Don't let the dark forces steal your peace and your joy! Don't let the outside World dictate who you are or how you feel! Get to know yourself and strenghten your resolve. You are a unique and authentic person as God created you to be! Do NOT let anybody make you feel ashamed of who YOU are!!!

FEAR IS your greatest enemy and FEAR is a form of oppression. People are taught to substitute fear for reason. DO NOT allow fear to seep into your spirit. CHOOSE to be happy and find peace in the midst of the storm no matter what. Try smiling even if you don't feel like it, listen to music that inspires you, watch a movie that inspires you or better yet, say out loud "I choose to BE happy". Watch and see how doing these things quickly changes how you feel. Surround yourself with positive forces!

The seeds of discouragement can not take root in a grateful heart. What are you grateful for today?

The Secret of The Universe!


This is a 4 minute beautiful calming video that will help alleviate all of our angst and soothe our souls. God knows we need it right now. Enjoy!

You don't have to be defeated by life! Whether your situation was caused by bad choices or by forces beyond your control. Just know that you are NOT your possessions, your title or status. People place so much importance on these things that they don't realize they are in essence 'devaluing' themselves and void in spirit. There is so much more to life that is far more enriching than you can imagine!

God is ABLE to make ALL grace abound toward me; every favor and earthly blessing come to me in abundance, so that I may always and under ALL circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient! = meaning possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation. [2 Corinthians 9:8 AMP] "And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others." [2 Corinthians 9:8 NLT]

That IS God's promise to YOU! God loves YOU soooo much! God is just waiting for you to invite Him in... You can start by saying, "God I need you right now." God will NEVER abandon you. He IS always faithful.

Get to know God. Spend time with God by talking to Him... God will answer you in many different ways; a song on the radio, something someone says on television, a movie, a billboard, nature, a neighbor, a friend, a book you're reading, or even in a dream in the form of a message.

You'll be able to tell the difference between a dream and a message. Because you'll remember every detail, it feels real and you never forget it. It's kind of like the experience people who have near death experience (NDE) have, only you do not die! God will also speak directly to your spirit. But you have to be receptive and be able to discern His spirit.

Give yourself strength/confidence by declaring to yourself every morning, I know that - "I AM a child of the most high God" - "I AM God's perfect creation" - "I AM a victor and NOT a victim" "I am an instrucment of Your will Lord, show me The Way" - "No Weapon formed against me shall prosper!" - "God help me become a better person."

INDIA: 40 Trawlers Carrying 640 Fishermen Missing In Bay of Bengal

DNA India
written by PTI Agency
Monday August 4, 2014

Forty trawlers, carrying 640 fishermen, have gone missing in the Bay of Bengal near Kakdwip in South 24 Parganas district, an official of the Fishermen Association said today.

The trawlers, each carrying 16 fishermen, had gone to the sea for fishing a few days ago, but contact between the liaison unit of the Association at Kakdwip and them was snapped during a storm last night, the state government aided Association's Secretary Jaykrishna Halder said.

Efforts are on to locate them and the Coast Guard has been alerted, Sunderban Development Minister Manturam Pakhira said.

Meanwhile, two other trawlers-'Suryanarayan' and 'Maharudra'- capsized near Jambu Dwip in the Bay of Bengal during the storm last evening.

Of the 32 fishermen on board, 25 were rescued and seven others are missing, Halder said. The rescued fishermen are being treated at a local hospital.

Five other trawlers set off from Raidighi in the same district managed to reach Dhamra Port in Odisha. All the fishermen were safe, he said.

BANGLADESH: Overloaded Ferry Sinks With Up To 200 Passengers On Board; 100 Have Been Rescued From Water Alive.

The Times of India
written by AFP staff
Monday August 4, 2014

DHAKA - An overloaded ferry carrying up to 200 passengers sank Monday on a river in central Bangladesh, police said.

Rescue teams have pulled around 100 people out of the water, authorities said. Two dead bodies have been found, but the rest remain unaccounted for.

The boat was around 30 kilometres (20 miles) south of the capital Dhaka when it sank in rough conditions.

"We have heard that the ferry was overloaded with passengers and the river was rough," local police chief Tofazzal Hossain told AFP.

The police chief of Madaripur, where the ferry began its journey, said it was carrying between 170 and 200 passengers.

But one survivor, speaking on local television, said he the ferry was overloaded with up to 350 passengers.

"There was no storm, but the weather was cloudy and the river was rough. The waves were huge," he said.

"Suddenly the ferry was hit by a wave and flooded with water. I got out through a window and the ferry sank quickly.

"I was rescued by a local motor boat, other people were also rescued by boats."

Bangladeshi ferries do not maintain passenger logbooks, and are often overloaded.

Ferry accidents are common in the impoverished country, with overcrowding and poor ship design and maintenance often to blame.

Emergency workers at the scene said thousands of onlookers had gathered on the banks of the swollen river Padma, in the district of Munshiganj, where the boat sank.

August is monsoon season in Bangladesh, when rivers run high, and the ship was completely submerged.

"Our divers are going to locate the sunken ferry and start the rescue operations," Mohammad Dulal of the fire service told AFP.

Bangladesh, one of Asia's poorest nations, is criss-crossed by more than 230 rivers and boats are the main form of travel, especially in the southern and northeastern regions.

However many of the vessels in use date back to before independence in 1971.

Officials have said more than 95 percent of Bangladesh's hundreds of thousands of small and medium-sized boats do not meet minimum safety regulations.

In May, a passenger ferry thought to be carrying between 150 and 200 people sank in central Bangladesh, killing dozens of people. The exact death toll remains unknown.

Survivors blamed the ship's captain for refusing to take shelter from a gathering storm.

Around 150 people were killed in the same district in March 2012 after an overcrowded ferry carrying about 200 passengers sank when it was hit by an oil barge in the middle of the night.
