What Is Your Agenda?
I truly love inspired days... and I mean those that spirit inspire me to sit down ... with a thought... open my laptop... and face that blank white screen ... and begin to type.
Call it divinely inspired, automatic writing, heaven sent communication.. whatever you call it... that is what it is and embrace the blessings and thanks that you are open to receive.
So, today, when I awoke and heard, amidst all the other scrambling and ramblings in our world at the moment.... What is Your Agenda?
I immediately looked at my diary, the things I had to do... my commitments... basically what my day and the rest of this week was opening up for me....
Then I stopped, closed my eyes and listened.... because for me personally, that is where I get my best insights....
While sitting there in silence... listening... awaiting what divine messages would be shared with me... I heard again.... so... what is your agenda.... Today.... tomorrow..... next week?
Hmmm... should I open my eyes... check my diary... am I missing something were all possible ramblings inside my head. Then came more silence.... yes, I love my team... shut her up with silence... it works every time. Yes, I know, they KNOW me. Questions, questions.... then they bring it on... the silence I mean. This is when I KNOW spirit want me to review and go further within... i.e. they have sprinkled the breadcrumbs on this particular pathway... now follow them... and see .... feel.... be in silence to hear what transpires.
My life... just like yours can and WILL change, based on our belief system. It will evolve and transpire based on what we invite into us.... right now .... in any given moment. As you are reading this blog, you too will be creating thoughts... concepts. Maybe even think what a load of tosh (a British slang term, which I invite you to look up).
When we are open... ready.... and I mean READY to receive, infinite possibilities will come forth. Fill our head, fill our whole being with potential “anythings”. Whether it is a new way to do this... a different concept on that..... a for or against... a change in a paradigm... yes the cogs and wheels within us start to move... begin to open up so much... maybe for right now... or later on down the line of life.
Every day, when we awake, we are given 24 hours to BE.... to open our eyes... to open our heart... and create our OWN agenda. Whether to participate or not? This is your right too. Truly it is.
My agenda is to ever evolve, to empower myself in whatever way I need, want and desire. Empower others by the way I respond or react.
One definition of Empowerment in the dictionary reads “The process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one's life and claiming one's rights”. And of course “Agenda is defined as a list or outline of things to be considered or done.”
What if I, were to share that you have the authority, that you have the power to create your own agenda... and YES the God given ability to follow through. Would you do it for yourself?
I cannot answer that, I cannot tell you what your agenda should or shouldn’t be. But instead I can share that my agenda, for myself, for those who read my words, that I will continue to raise the vibration and share the positive with heart centred love.
If you have not heard or read the poem “Start Where You Stand” by By Berton Braley (1882-1966) www.BertonBraley.com I invite you to take a moment to read his words in a hope they may open up something within you to create your own agenda in consideration.
Start where you stand and never mind the past,
The past won't help you in beginning new,
If you have left it all behind at last,
Why, that's enough, you're done with it, you're through.
This is another chapter in the book,
This is another race that you have planned,
Don't give the vanished days a backward look,
Start where you stand.
The world won't care about your old defeats
If you can start anew and win success,
The future is your time, and time is fleet
And there is much of work and strain and stress.
Forget the buried woes and dead despairs,
Here is a brand new trial right at hand,
The future is for him who does and dares,
Start where you stand.
Old failures will not halt, old triumphs aid,
Today's the thing, tomorrow soon will be;
Get in the fight and face it unafraid,
And leave the past to ancient history.
What has been, has been; yesterday is dead
And by it you are neither blessed nor banned,
Take courage, man, be brave and drive ahead,
Start where you stand.
I hope you are encouraged to acknowledge within your soul that EVERYTHING in life STARTS where you stand........
Knowing that... What is your agenda?

Heaven Sent Gifts
I am so blessed to live where I live.... and today, in an effort to connect and get some insights to what this week’s reading should be focused upon I went for a walk along the marina. Today there were no turtles or water snakes, but while I sat and listened to the waves lapping peacefully on the shoreline watching the boats in the harbour, I gave thanks.
I gave thanks to be able to sit there and enjoy the sunshine. For being able to hear the laughter of children & families embracing another beautiful Sunday. I gave thanks and realized how lucky I am.
Continuing my walk I wondered in awe what blessings, other than these would I encounter, because spirit, when in the Now intention, always send us a message, or messages because we are open to receive.
Today I spiritually connected, “spidey” antenna up and ready to receive, as I purposefully opened my heart to whatever my guides, angels and helpers would share with me. It wasn’t long before I saw in the grass, my first blessing. A small white feather, the wind moving it slowly back and forth in momentum in the grass , so I would not walk by and miss it. I picked it up, stroked it back into place because in its effort to be seen, the barbs and veins had spread open making it seem to the naked eye like it was damaged. I popped it into my purse after thanking the Universe for sending me such a beautiful gift. Damaged or not it was coming home with me to join all the other little feathers I had collected over time. Nothing is EVER damaged enough that it cannot heal. We can all mend, with love, kindness and understanding.
My second blessing was to look up into the clear blue skies to see a Cooper Hawk being chased by a small bird. The small bird didn’t give up, it continued to ward away the large bird away until the hawk eventually gave up and flew away. I felt this was spirit reminding me, us that even if someone or something seems bigger and more powerful to never underestimate the power of being small. Even when we may feel small and insignificant when dealing with some situations in life, it is totally immaterial. You are NEVER too small to make a BIG difference in life. You only have to reflect on people who have stood up and spoken out and the changes that they brought about.
My third, was a large feather, I think it was from a seagull, so I took the time to look up the spiritual significance related to the seagull and basically it is looking at things differently. Taking a moment to step back from everything possibly changing my attitude towards something and find creative new ways order for it to succeed tapping into the resources that reside within.
And my forth, but I don’t feel it is my final gift today, was a black ribbon, where or how it got caught under my hat, I have no idea, but it was dangling down my face. Initially I thought my headband had come unravelled, or my hat was falling to pieces. No and No. Did it drop from the sky, the heavens? Possibly . Black I have reminded people is the inclusion of all color, it’s of remembrance, respect and awareness. Time to take a serious look at things..... knowing... eternity.
My FOUR gifts today symbolize for me that my angels and helpers are there around me all the time, they protect me, give me strength and guidance and most of all faith to continue believing that I am always exactly where I should be at any given time.
I am thankful that I was given all these gifts, the black ribbon now holds together the four large feathers that were gifted to me over the past few weeks during my walks.
As Wayne Dyer shared “When we are open enough to receive, the gifts will come flowing towards us.”

As I sat, looking outside my window... embracing the beautiful sunshine... I watched, absorbing the silence... the quietness... and I wondered...
Then I recalled as a child... saying “what if.... and my grandmother quickly responding....
If ....Ifs and Ands Were Pots And Pans, There'd Be No Work For Tinkers' Hands...
And of course as a small child I had no idea what she was talking about.... just another saying... of the many she would use when she either didn’t want to address something.... or maybe couldn’t.... because she didn’t know....
As I remembered, recalled that reality I contemplated, the notion that perhaps what we are experiencing at the moment... maybe there are no answers.... no solutions... just variations of what each of us.... consciously or obliviously feel... or are listening to ...... or find while researching.... or just sit in wonderment... and of course what we are sharing.... just as I am in this moment......
What if ....we are all right and we are all wrong....
What if .....the information we are being given is only part of the reality....
What if ....... the human race is really only in one virtual combined dream...
What if... the leaders of the worlds are right.... or perhaps wrong....
What if... your fear is fueling you and others around you...
What if... I have my head buried in the sand... in a fantasy that all will be well...
What if.... this is about being silent.... loud... shouting... screaming... releasing...
What if.... I am enjoying this isolation... or feeling trapped
What if .... the news ... fake OR real is all part of an experiment to see how we react... respond...
What if... this is about being kind to others... being a community... locally and globally...
This is NOT about.....
Male vs female
Gay vs heterosexual
Black vs white
Old vs young
Rich vs poor
Sick vs healthy
Pro vs con
Hate vs love
Religion vs spirituality
Resident vs immigrant
I know many of you digesting my reflection at this time have your own What if... if so, I invite you to share... and for EVERYONE reading this, if you intimidate someone because of their what if.... shame on you... and yes, I will delete your comment... this is about being open... sharing.
None of us are wrong... none of us are right... maybe your what if is different.... and that is okay.... this is about allowing each of us to share... our own what if.... without judgement ... without fear of retribution...
I love Rumi quotes... even at this time when there is so much uncertainty.... so many questions... yet few or confusing answers... each of us in our own reality... whether connected ... plugged in... intravenously to the media 24/7 processing... or ignoring everything and everyone.....
Rumi said... We carry within us... the wonders we seek outside us....
And maybe there, in those words, lie the answers to all our “what ifs”... and maybe they don’t.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, letting me share, as one human, being having a spiritual epiphany, to another.

Swing Low, Sweet Chariot
Last night spirit shared the song... Swing Low, Sweet Chariot.
Upon waking I decided to sit, meditate & do a little research for myself, because although, like many of you, I know this to be a American Negro spiritual song representing the path to freedom I wondered, why share it now... with everything that is happening in our world...
What I have been receiving lately from spirit are symbolic codes. Some which I have been able to decipher.. others still a work in progress.
The CHARIOT in this song offered transportation for the soul to heaven... God having thousands of chariots meaning a sign of his power. In the Bible it is of things good ... and TRUTH...
In Tarot this card denotes determination, motion, BALANCE, it is of the element water which is connected to our emotions. I relate to the image in this card , being Archangel Raphael, the healer, holding his staff. His name alone indicates “ God Heals.”
The words “A BAND OF ANGELS..” to me defines strength, standing strong, being unbreakable because of FAITH... belief...... Being optimistic ... not giving in.... because when we all “band” together... we create hope... optimism... in the final part of the song... it determines spiritual freedom... liberation.... spiritually.
“CARRY ME HOME” to me, spirit, heaven is home... it symbolizes the place where I/we belong... it is a place of pure unconditional LOVE...
At the moment we may feel like we are being oppressed, held in place, for whatever reason... that is not the discussion...
My conclusion... from my time meditating was that FREEDOM IS COMING... I saw myself in a chariot, up in the heavens, the sky was full of sunshine... and below me I could hear laughter from healthy, loving souls....
The link below is of the Fisk Jubilee Singers cirac 1909, may it bring you hope because all is NOT lost, we just haven't found the solution yet... but it is a coming...

Thank you to everyone who joined myself & Ida Keightley on April 4, 2020 at 10.45pm EST for the global Ceremony of Awakening where one million meditators around the globe came together at the same time to raise the vibration & heal our world, our people, our planet...
This is the message that was shared by Lightworkers.org that I shared with everyone on the Facebook live feed. Vibrational Blessings Debbie A. Anderson
We gather in a time of unprecedented circumstances. In isolation, quarantine and displacement. As the global economy freefalls and the flood of fear and confusion sweeps the planet, we come together, in peace, in love and trust.
We come together in the name of Truth, Connection, and Humility. Seeking Guidance and insights from the highest authority there is. The Divine light of that power some call God, Great Spirit, Divine Infinite Consciousness from where all of creation is born, and all gratitude belongs.
Across all cultures and all creeds, we come together with one voice, one prayer, to a place of stillness in the collective consciousness of humanity.
We sit as representatives of our tribes, our communities, our people and all the beings we share our planetary home with. For the great forests, the small ones that creep and crawl, the great ones of the oceans, all that slithers and swims, and flys on wings, we are here to serve all beings. In humility and trust, we serve the ultimate power of love and truth, the light of Great Spirit.
What is our role in these coming days, how can we best be of service to the divine plan for our world?
We ask now for forgiveness of ourselves and all beings that have lost their way and forgotten their place.
We ask now for the dissolution of all institutions of fear and deceit. We ask for the dissolution of all manipulations and resistance to the divine plan. We ask for the light of Great Spirit to shine down upon the dark shadow that has spread across our world, to shine divine light into to all regions, into all homes, and all sacred places.
We ask for healing and liberation to all those who are suffering. We ask for ease and grace as we transition into humanities divine plan and purpose in a new age of Divine Light.
We ask for strength and guidance, we ask for vision and dreams, we ask for the healing and forgiveness of all the fallen ones that exist in fear and ignorance, that they too may come to the light of Great Spirits love.
We call to the light of Great Spirit in all hearts to shine now. We call to the light of Great Spirit to awaken the sleepers to their divine purpose.
We call the light of Great Spirit to shine bright through Mother Gaias heart, to fill the crystals and the mountains, the springs and the streams, the oceans and the rains, through the forests and valleys, through every flower, and every plant.
We ask that this vigil of light and love grow and spread as a healing and awakening force.
We ask for the support and guidance from all the forces of light to join us in this effort.
We connect, we share and set for our sacred intention.
We ask in humility and trust for forgiveness from all debts, contracts and bonds.
We ask in humility and trust for peace between all beings.
We ask in humility and trust for a healthy sustainable world to thrive in.
We ask in humility and trust for abundance and freedom for all beings.
We ask in humility and trust for the dreams of all light beings to flourish now.
We ask in humility and trust for co-operation and harmony between all tribes and nations.
We ask in humility and trust for truth and transparency between all people.
We ask in humility and trust for the creative power of love to shine now.
We ask in humility and trust for the Rule of Divine Lore to guide us.
We ask in humility and trust for the guidance of Great Spirits eternal wisdom.
We ask in Humility and trust for the light of Great Spirit to shine bright in our hearts.
We ask in humility and trust for the forgiveness and liberation of all beings into the eternal splendor of the limitless light of Great Spirit.
In perfect love and trust. Let the light shine!
Remember the power of your heart, channels of light, bringers of love. United as a force of divine consciousness, let your voice be heard, ask and you shall receive.
Open your hearts and open your minds, the possibilities are infinite. Now is the time to reclaim your birth right, to reclaim your power and your purpose.
Stand strong in the face of ignorance, have courage to face the fear. There is a plan, a divine plan and we are all a part of it. You are needed now.
Find time and commit to a daily practice and vigil to uphold this intention.
Spread the word, shine your light. The time is now.
I share quite a bit about the Law of The Garbage Truck*, so if you haven’t heard it before here goes:
Next time a car pulls out in front of you, or cuts you off, before you respond think about the 'The Law of the Garbage Truck.'
Many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment.
As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you. Don't take it personally.
Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don't take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.
The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day.
Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so ... Love the people who treat you right.
And let go of the ones who don't.
Life is Ten Percent what you MAKE IT and Ninety Percent how you TAKE IT..
So try and make every day, A Garbage-Free Day!
My New Year Resolution to anyone would be don’t sweat the small stuff, don't carry your garbage around and smile more!
After all, smiling not only makes us feel better, but also when we exchange a smile with others can assist them in changing their mood-basically it is contagious in a great way! Smiling as we all know is good for our health, by increasing our immune system and reducing our stress levels. Especially after Christmas we need to prevent ourselves from getting worried about everything i.e. bills and how much we have eaten.
The biggest and best thing about smiling is it costs us ONLY the time it takes to create it. So grab a DVD of a comedy, read a funny book, or spend time with small children. If all else fails take yourself to a mirror and smile at yourself. You can’t help but laugh!!

* The Law of the Garbage Truck: How to Stop People from Dumping on You by David J. Pollay
Who Packs Your Parachute?
Charles Plumb was a US Navy jet pilot in Vietnam. After 75 combat missions, his plane was destroyed by a surface-to-air missile. Plumb ejected and parachuted into enemy hands. He was captured and spent 6 years in a communist Vietnamese prison. He survived the ordeal and now lectures on lessons learned from that experience.
One day, when Plumb and his wife were sitting in a restaurant, a man at another table came up and said, ' You're Plumb! You flew jet fighters in Vietnam from the aircraft carrier Kitty Hawk. You were shot down!
'How in the world did you know that?' asked Plumb.
'I packed your parachute,' the man replied.
Plumb gasped in surprise and gratitude.
The man pumped his hand and said, 'I guess it worked!'
Plumb assured him, 'It sure did. If your chute hadn't worked, I wouldn't be here today.'
Plumb couldn't sleep that night, thinking about that man. Plumb says, 'I kept wondering what he had looked like in a Navy uniform: a white hat; a bib in the back; and bell-bottom trousers.
I wonder how many times I might have seen him and not even said 'Good morning, how are you?' or anything because, you see, I was a fighter pilot and he was just a sailor.' Plumb thought of the many hours the sailor had spent at a long wooden table in the bowels of the ship, carefully weaving the shrouds and folding the silks of each chute, holding in his hands each time the fate of someone he didn't know.
Now, Plumb asks his audience, 'Who's packing your parachute?' Everyone has someone who provides what they need to make it through the day. He also points out that he needed many kinds of parachutes when his plane was shot down over enemy territory - he needed his physical parachute, his mental parachute, his emotional parachute, and his spiritual parachute.
He called on all these supports before reaching safety.
Sometimes in the daily challenges that life gives us, we miss what is really important. We may fail to say hello, please, or thank you, congratulate someone on something wonderful that has happened to them, give a compliment, or just do something nice for no reason. As you go through this week, this month, this year, recognize people who pack your parachutes.
I am posting this as my way of thanking you for your part in packing my parachute & for packing them for others in your life. Today, like every day we have 24 hours in which to make a diffence & embrace all the vibrational parachutes we have had packed for us over the years...

I believe in .....
I truly believe that we are drawn in a particular direction for a reason.. be it spiritual, love or life... maybe it is about revisiting and forgiving... maybe it is about embracing and learning... whatever it is, when we are in that intention, with complete synchronicity, we learn something.
When we receive messages from the Universe they are timely, and although sometimes meant directly for us, every now and again they are for us to share with others.
I have been seeing 444 in whatever form that spirit brings it towards me to see and today I want to share this with you. Not for any other reason than I feel guided to do so.
At this moment, our world to some may feel like it is in chaos regarding belief and spirituality... possibly linked to past lives and the inaugural power struggles within mankind. I wonder if that state of flux is a reminder to me why I am eclectic in my work... standing alone is not necessarily lonely.
My road, my decision, and thankfully we are all different... it is when we seek inside, listen, and respond to where we are guided that matters most.
We are all here to receive the vibrational blessings on the road to what some refer to as the “awakening”, so the more we connect, calibrate to that frequency in awareness, the easier it does become. This is more about you discovering you, in the I AM essence, so step into that consciousness and let it assist you in whatever way you need.
Each of us has a life journey, and of course the human element that is mixed into it, is our free will, so don’t ever feel you are not exactly where you should be at any given time. Because if you do, sadly you miss out on the “present”... the gift we receive every day. As someone once shared with me, every day we awake and it is a clean slate, we choose what we do with that day, in any given moment. If you are unsure, then ask your guardian angel to assist you. They are there whenever you need them, just speak up, spend time with them, just like you would an old friend. It is about trust, faith and of course patience.
When we are in harmony, synchronized in our soul essence we don’t have to question is this the right path, am I exactly where I should be, because we have trusted that we will receive the signs, the notification if you like, from spirit. Whether this is listening to my intuition... my gut.... my heart. Unconditionally resonating with what happens... good, bad, happy, sad and ... everything in between.
So, when I see 444 in whatever form it appears, it is memo from my guides, helpers, angels... God. Saying, you are amazing, you are on track, you are exactly where you should be right now, and when there, you are in full intention to absorb, observe and in that moment.
Spirit communicate with us, so take some time to reflect on what messages you have been sent today, yesterday and be open and ready tomorrow.
Vibrational Blessings, Debbie A. Anderson
What I've Learned......
Sadly after a lot of research online I was unable to find out who put these beautiful thoughts together, some attributed it to Andy Rooney, but his publicist said these are not his words. Whomever collated them we thank you, because they are perfectly vibrational.
I've learned.... That the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.
I've learned.... That when you're in love, it shows.
I've learned .... That just one person saying to me, 'You've made my day!' makes my day.
I've learned.... That having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world.
I've learned.... That being kind is more important than being right.
I've learned.... That you should never say no to a gift from a child.
I've learned.... That I can always pray for someone when I don't have the strength to help them in any other way.
I've learned.... That no matter how serious your life requires you to be, everyone needs a friend to act goofy with.
I've learned.... That sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand.
I've learned....That life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.
I've learned....That it's those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular.
I've learned... That under everyone's hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved.
I've learned...That to ignore the facts does not change the facts.
I've learned....That when you plan to get even with someone, you are only letting that person continue to hurt you.
I've learned.... That love, not time, heals all wounds.
I've learned.... That the easiest way for me to grow as a person is to surround myself with people smarter than I am.
This is my contribution.... I invite you to share your what “I’ve Learned” in the comments below.
I’ve learned .... That life is about living in unconditional vibrational Love.

This seemed like a great time to write this blog and share with you all. It seems we live in a fish bowl where we share things about ourselves with others and in turn they communicate with us....
In my line of work, people have conveyed many things to me. Sometimes it’s the great events that are occurring in their lives, but also how tough their journey is now and again.
I try within my limited life to offer an ear they can bend, a shoulder to cry on.... and hopefully an ounce of hope to keep them going because we are all aware that the crappola hits us at one time or another.
I listen, hopefully empathize and always try to give them some kind of hope to move forward with.
No, I don’t profess to implement the Pollyanna effect, but to remember that we get sent opportunities from spirit on a daily basis. Yes, some call them lessons...but when they are directed to us, it gives us the option to explore.... or participate or what I term.... PLAY with them.
We, in that moment, are given an opportunity... yes GIVEN, in a divine appointment, so to speak, the chance... the possibility to make a change.... based on whatever this event is sharing with us. So embrace these moments, STAY in a positive vibration...
And of course, put up a prayer (or ten). Yes PRAY. Spirit are always open, 24 -7 and listening. Our angels, guides, helpers, our ancestors, those we love who have passed to spirit will assist us in whatever way they can.
Even if it is like the poem, “Footprints in the Sand” where the Lord says:
"My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you."

As we awaken the vibration within, so the healing begins and we learn to love and live.
