As I woke up this morning, I felt a sudden awareness of my body and all it has offered me these many years. Today is my 78th birthday so that means my body is 78 years old even if my spirit or soul is immortal. What has my body seen, heard, felt and experienced in all this time? I am filled with a deep appreciation and gratitude for all this body has endured as my vehicle on this planet. Without my body, I would not be able to have the five senses which is the pinnacle of why souls wish to embody on Earth. Without my body to express ALL the human emotions like crying when I am sad or when I am happy or touched by something profound, I would not have experienced all that life has to offer.

When I was a little girl, all I wanted was to be a mother even as I explored being a nun which to me meant being a surrogate mother to all the little children I would be teaching. I had so much love in me that I yearned to give and to me motherhood was the epitome of true love. I never even considered that my body would not be able to give me children, I was that positive of my true calling. I became a mother at 18 and again at almost 20 and then again at 25 years old. My body did all it was meant to do and I thank it for being my vehicle through life. When I was forty years old, my doctor insisted that I have a hysterectomy for health reasons. I refused unless they would return my uterus to me that I might honor it, as my womb had allowed me to be a mother and I could not allow it to be treated like a piece of liver. The medical community was aghast and I even had a doctor call and argue with me for half an hour. Finally, he ended the call with: “Lady, I sure hope you don’t start a fad”.

I had not realized that I was doing anything unusual; I just felt that I had to honor the organ that allowed me to fulfill my dream. This occurred during the long 5 years of my dark night of the soul as I had lost everything I had to have for a secure life. I lost my mortgage free home, money in the bank, the IRS placed a federal tax lien on me, I got a divorce and was grateful to have emergency housing in a housing project. It was there that I had dug a hole in the front of my statue of Mary in preparation. I knew the ground would be frozen when I needed it. On Thanksgiving Day, I called my three children to be at my home at the same time. They were not aware of what I had done so did not realize that I needed them to be there to share in honoring their first home. My womb knew them before I did and protected them before I would be able to even hold them. They were quite surprised at what I had done but because they loved me, they participated in the ceremony I had prepared. I used an old cotton lacy handkerchief of my mom’s as its shroud and placed it in the hole in front of Mary in the small rose garden I had. Since I had come from my mother’s womb, I needed to honor her also. And….we all had to honor the Divine Mother.

Most people are not acutely aware that without the womb, there would be no future generations. Humanly would become extinct, there is no one alive on Earth that did not come from their Mother’s womb. It is another reason that women should honor themselves. Without them, this organ and their consent, where would humanity be? A few years later, I had quite an AHA moment with a woman who sees other than what the human eye can see and know. I was told to write a book, it had to have a Chalice on it and the title would be: “The Wounded Chalice”. Thus began another chapter of my life. I had no idea of the connection of the Chalice to the womb but was told later by Spirit that both the Chalice and the womb hold the Blood of Life. Thus the symbolism between them and also the word “Wounded” because my womb had been wounded and so had Jesus who the Chalice most represents.

I had no idea that I would be writing about this today but it just seems to flow. More of the details of this particular event in my life are in my book as well as other events that have made me who I am today. A VERY GRATEFUL WOMAN. When I think of all the things I have been able to do because I had this body, it amazes me. I want to express my deep gratitude for all the “bodies” that have been part of my life. At this moment, I want all to realize what a gift they have in their body which allows their Soul and Spirit to experience the physical in such an amazing way. Hooray for our bodies and for Humanity.

Here is a story of the power of the womb which has invisible threads that connect and are really never severed.

All the love your mother had for you, she wants you to have for yourself. Let not her love be for naught.

Good news about the Zika virus. Actually it is good and bad, good because they might have found another reason for it and bad because it means many people have been poisoned.

I just had to share this with you. I remember Civics from when I was in school telling us how the government works but this article refreshed my memory and made me realize that there is one thing we can do if we are confused on who to vote for. This year’s Presidential election is quite different than most and we have so many running and so many to choose from. Most of us think the President can do anything but that is false. He has no power, Congress has the power. The only power he has is foreign affairs. I know for me, it is narrowing the field for me when I think of who would be less likely to push the BUTTON (nuclear). There are a lot promises being made but they already know they won’t be able to affect the decisions very much. WHO WOULD YOU CHOOSE TO DEAL WITH ALL THE OTHER NATIONS IN THE WORLD? It has to be someone who respects life and works tirelessly for peace. We are one species on one planet, why would we annihilate a species? That will help narrow your choices. Enjoy this article that refreshes what most of us have forgotten.

This is so soothing and relaxing. These winter scenes make the winter more enjoyable. Enjoy

I don’t know about you but I could use a laugh about now. At least a chuckle or a grin. So I am going to do something different and put the light hearted news at the beginning. I hope you enjoy these. Out of the mouths of babes.

A little boy was attending his first wedding.
After the service, his cousin asked him,
“How many women can a man marry?”
“Sixteen,” the boy responded.
His cousin was amazed that he had an answer so quickly.
“How do you know that?”
“Easy,” the little boy said.
“All you have to do is add it up, like the pastor said,
4 better, 4 worse, 4 richer, 4 poorer.”

After a church service on Sunday morning, a young boy suddenly announced to his mother,
“Mom, I’ve decided to become a minister when I grow up.”
“That’s okay with us, but what made you decide that?”
“Well,” said the little boy, “I have to go to church on Sunday anyway,
And I figure it will be more fun to stand up and yell, than to sit and listen.”

A 6-year-old was overheard reciting the Lord’s Prayer at a church service,
“And forgive us our trash passes, as we forgive those who passed trash against us.”

A boy was watching his father, a pastor, write a sermon.
“How do you know what to say?” he asked.
“Why, God tells me.”
“Oh, then why do you keep crossing things out?”

A little girl became restless as the preacher’s sermon dragged on and on.
Finally, she leaned over to her mother and whispered,
“Mommy, if we give him the money now, will he let us go?”

Ms. Terri asked her Sunday School class to draw pictures of their favorite Bible stories.
She was puzzled by Kyle’s picture, which showed four people on an airplane.
She asked him which story it was meant to represent.
“The Flight to Egypt,” was his reply.
Pointing at each figure, Ms. Terri said,
“That must be Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus.
But who’s the fourth person?”
“Oh, that’s Pontius – the pilot!”

The Sunday School Teacher asks,
“Now, Johnny, tell me frankly do you say prayers before eating?”
“No ma’am,” little Johnny replies, I don’t have to.
My mom is a good cook.”

This is the best one.

A little girl was sitting on her grandfather’s lap as he read her a bedtime story.
From time to time, she would take her eyes off the book and reach up to touch his wrinkled cheek.
She was alternately stroking her own cheek, then his again.
Finally she spoke up, “Grandpa, did God make you?”
“Yes, sweetheart,” he answered, “God made me a long time ago.”
“Oh,” she paused, “Grandpa, did God make me too?”
“Yes, indeed, honey,” he said, “God made you just a little while ago.”
Feeling their respective faces again, she observed,
“God’s getting better at it, isn’t he?”

Here is a video of the inner workings of the elephant who never forgets. It is amazing just how we can actually see and feel the emotions between the two.

Are you smiling yet? I know it lifted my mood so I can share some caring and loving energy with you. Children are my favorite mood lifters but so are people who are so creative when something is so obvious to them. I hope you pass this along as there are many people in this world who would love to know about this clothing and the peace that it brings to the whole family.

It seems all I hear on the news is about how the police are such brutes and so uncaring. I know there are always some like that but most of them deserve our thanks and appreciation for all the unknown good that they do for us with no expectation of reward.

While we are in a trend of enjoying and learning from children, I want to share this from Neale Donald Walsch.

I have been preparing all week for this weekend. Tomorrow, Saturday, I will be offering my book, The Wounded Chalice in all forms at the Catholic Women’s Conference. It is a book that inspires women to honor themselves and their bodies. Without women there would be no future human race. That is how important you are to the whole world. It is also an autobiography of the many ways we women are challenged and some tips on how to be a winner in the game of life. It is a book from a mother to all the mothers especially on Mother’s Day which is coming up quite soon. Do you need a gift for your mom that she will absolutely love? Let me know.

Sunday I will have a booth as the Natural Life Celebration at the Hope Artiste Village in Pawtucket, RI. It celebrates healthy living on a healthy planet. I will be offering Mystic Readings with Reiki and also my book and CD’s will be available. Hope to see you again and give you a hug.

I am now on my way to set up for the conference tomorrow, so I’ll close for now and I hope you got to smile at least once.

Love and Light

This has been quite a week. Now you will know why this newsletter is later than usual, I needed to be clearing up today what I created yesterday. I have been doing Panache Desai’s Density detox and it has been less painful than I expected until yesterday. Panache had told us that it would be the hardest day of facing just what we wish to let go of. All week I have become aware of feelings that I wished to release and with his profound loving energy, he has made it much easier. I have had the opportunity to release the dependence I had on the possibility that a knee brace would release the pain of my bone on bone knee. I have been declared an unsuitable candidate for knee replacement surgery by two doctors. I was so looking forward to perhaps being able to go for a walk again or perhaps being able to take vacations or bus trips where I would be able to walk to see what was being offered. More pain and aggravation ensued as I kept trying to get “used” to the hinged brace. One night I thought I would have to call the ambulance as when I awoke with my full bladder, I could not walk to the bathroom without having to be completely bent over and hands on my knees, slowly getting there but not making it in time. The back pain was so severe that I was truly concerned. I decided to go back to bed and when I got up the next day, I still had the pain but not as severe and I was not bent over as much.

I am sure you realize that when the pain first began three days before, I stopped using the brace and when it subsided I tried again. I began with only an hour and a half of having it on around the house and then the next day I went on a short shopping trip to two stores where there would be minimal walking. In both stores, I had to go to the rest room to pull the brace back up and redo it as it would keep sliding down to my ankle even with four straps. The pain in my knee increased each time I wore it and it was designed to lift the bone off the other bone so with a space in between, the pain would be lessened considerably. I finally went to the place about an hour away where the technician could reassess and help. They came to the conclusion that this brace would not work for me and offered me one other brace that we hope will work. It is ordered and we will see how this one does. I have been dealing with knee pain for 11 years so with the detox, I was given another opportunity to welcome the challenge I am having and hopefully, the new one will solve the problem.

Yesterday as I was gathering all my tax receipts and info to fill out my income tax, I called the firm handling my IRA to get the amount of money I have to take out so it can be added to my form and I get to pay tax on it. When you are 70 and a half, you need to start taking a predetermined percentage of your IRA out of the total amount you have in there. There is a penalty if you don’t withdraw that amount by Dec. 31st. Guess what I had forgotten to do? You got it; I forgot to withdraw the amount I was supposed to. So I asked the firm what would happen now and how much penalty would I have to pay. I was told you need to pay 50% of what you did not take out. I was stunned and asked if there was a grace period and I was told they did not know. I called my tax person who was at a tax seminar learning the rules that apply to income tax (the rules are always changing).

The IRS had put a federal tax lien on me for 5 years due to my now ex-husband’s shenanigans 24 years ago. They had also withdrawn from my personal account the amount they claimed were the taxes that he had not paid. I had already paid through my payroll more than what I owed but he had gone bankrupt both personal and business wise so they came after me. The IRS was not willing to allow me me the Innocent Spouse claim and my tax person told me after fighting with them for 5 years that they were not listening to him. I went into prayer/mediation and I heard the word “Congressman”. I did not know what he could do but I know guidance when I hear it so I took all 5 years of correspondence and brought it to my Congressman. In 3 weeks I received a written letter of apology from the IRS (it is up on my wall) and my money back with interest. I was so pleasantly surprised.

So, I called my Congressman and the young man’ name who I spoke with has the same as my boyfriend before I met my husband. Synchronicity? It turns out that he carries his dad’s name but his dad is not the same person I dated. It made me smile as I know the Universe is always giving us messages and nudges. He was not able to answer my questions but told me to write a letter and what to include in it and he would try to help me. Well, no quick answers but I was aware that I was not as upset this time with the IRS and I KNEW that all would be taken care but I was not sure how. After all, if they can give a grace period for our taxes after April 15, why could I not get a grace period?

This morning I got a call my from my tax person who said not to worry, that she would include a letter with my tax return saying that I was always prompt with this procedure but simply forgot to do it this time and she was SURE there would be no problem, that the IRS would waive the fee. Guess what? The IRS is human after all.

Right after that call I got a call from my publisher, Author House, who published my book “The Wounded Chalice”. He wanted to help me sell more books and wanted more information. I asked why his predecessor did not give him all my notes and he mentioned that who I dealt with before was the marketing division but he was with the book selling division. I was not aware they had those divisions but I had been requesting from the Universe that I need a manager as I am willing to do what is necessary but cannot do what I don’t know to do. He is willing help me understand Facebook, Twitter and YouTube and he has many tips on how I can reach more people. I asked what it was going to cost me as there always has been a cost to getting any help before. He said his job is to help me and for now there would be no cost.

I am telling you these stories so you can see what 2015 is going to bring. Everything you are not ready to release will keep popping up until you welcome it and bless it. These are simply opportunities for us to release the baggage we are carrying so we can finally be free to be who we are. We will be able to bring forth the gifts that we carry within us for the good of ALL humanity. After all, we are all ONE, what helps you will help others. Isn’t that exciting?

Do you believe in Magic? I do and I believe in Miracles. You can see that although it may not be much fun to feel challenged the way I was challenged, Magic did happen and Miracles happened also. Believe and claim your own magic as it is there for you to see if you just take the time to be aware.

There seems to be a lot of info coming in that will help us in this year as well as tips and hints on how to navigate through it. This is one.

Here is another one with more details about full moons, new moons etc.

I know the news is not very pleasant to watch or hear these days. I watch it so I can send love and light energy to those areas that need it most. It can be daunting and sad at the same time. I got this email from Patricia Cota-Robles and tried to get a link to it but it is not on her website, at least not yet. It is too important not to share with you. It offers insights that will soother your mind and heart.

Je Suis Charlie – The Bigger Picture

by Patricia Cota-Robles

January 8, 2015


Millions and millions of people around the World are focusing their attention on the senseless and tragic shootings that took place in France this week. Contrary to the intent of the terrorists, the World has come together in a profound and unifying way.

This brutal act was an affront to Liberty, Freedom, Free Speech, and Peace. Now millions of people all over the Planet are carrying signs that say JE SUIS CHARLIE. This is creating a Collective Cup of Consciousness that is empowering the shift into Oneness and Christ Consciousness that has been building within Humanity, day by day, since the birth of the New Earth which took place December 21-22, 2012.


CHAR = The root word for HEART or LOVE, for example CHARITY

LIE = A derivative of LIER = TO BOND or LINK

Let’s take this opportunity to link our hearts with the heart of every man, woman, and child on Earth, so that the I AM Presence within each and every one of us will be able to accelerate the shift into Christ Consciousness that we have ALL been experiencing.

The Path of Divine Love is the Immaculate Concept for the New Earth. As we perpetually express Divine Love through our thoughts, feelings, words, and actions, Oneness and Reverence for ALL Life will become the Order of the New Day on Planet Earth. THIS IS OUR MOMENT! THE TIME FOR US TO ACT IS NOW!

God Bless YOU,

Patricia Cota-Robles

Remember that you are the power; it is all in your hands and heart. This is a reminder of just what is needed for you to BE WHO YOU ARE MEANT TO BE. Start with loving yourself, smile when you goof, like I did with my IRA and let your child come out to play. As a child, we had Walt Disney that kept the belief in magic alive. Even Jesus said:” Become like a little child”.….pdf
