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...

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.

Author & lecturer Leo Buscaglia (known as Dr. Love) told of a time he was asked to, through a contest, find the most caring child.
What I love about these stories is the vibrational frequency that is emitted from a child’s heart. Below is the winner and some of the other heartwarming innocence that comes from children who see everything unconditionally. Sometimes we need to look through the eyes of a child to really SEE!!!
A four-year-old child, whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman, who had recently lost his
wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old Gentleman's' yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.
When his mother asked him what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy just said, 'Nothing, I
just helped him cry.'
Teacher Debbie Moon's first graders were discussing a picture of a family. One little boy in the picture
had a different hair color than the other members. One of her students suggested that he was adopted.
A little girl said, 'I know all about Adoption, I was adopted..'
'What does it mean to be adopted?', asked another child.
'It means', said the girl, 'that you grew in your mommy's heart instead of her tummy!'
On my way home one day, I stopped to watch a Little League base ball game that was being played in a
park near my home. As I sat down behind the bench on the first-base line, I asked one of the boys what the score was 'We're behind 14 to nothing,' he answered with a smile.
'Really,' I said. 'I have to say you don't look very discouraged.'
'Discouraged?', the boy asked with a puzzled look on his face... 'Why should we be discouraged? We haven't been up to bat yet.'
Whenever I'm disappointed with my spot in life, I stop and think about little Jamie Scott.
Jamie was trying out for a part in the school play. His mother told me that he'd set his heart on being in it, though she feared he would not be chosen. On the day the parts were awarded, I went with her to collect him after school. Jamie rushed up to her, eyes shining with pride and excitement.. 'Guess what,
Mom,' he shouted, and then said those words that will remain a lesson to me....'I've been chosen to clap and cheer.'

For any of you that are still feeling the “drag” of energy since the Las Vegas shooting, please can I invite you to do these three vibrational things to boost your energy and the energy of those around you.
At this moment in time our world is yet again transitioning – changing up the energy. Testing us if you like! And yes, the tests will continue, it’s called LIFE.
Whenever you are wondering what comes next, take a moment to step into your energy, the beautiful vibration that placed you here right in this moment, reading this blog. You are part of the change, within yourself and your world. This moment was pre-determined when you wrote your contract of what you would do and be in this current life.
Do you have a choice? Yes, of course you do, but do you want to be in an awakened state or a sleeper?
I know which one I would choose and have chosen to be.

When life throws us a curve ball or two, it can affect our vibration in so many ways. This week’s reading offered a resounding message from Spirit - Keep Calm and Carry On. And for those of you who know that particular saying and the things that are happening in our world at the moment, should find it a very apt mantra to keep saying over and over again.
In our humanness, and yes that is a big part of who we are, our spiritual essence struggles, with everything .......the good, the bad and the ugly. But the disappointments, some may call frustrations, can really soak into our soul and try to break us down.
I personally have been going through a skirmish, and like many of you conclude that maybe it was placed before me as a reminder that life is full of imperfections and bumps along the way. Maybe this is another test of my faith, my belief and honoring the energy frequency that I work and live in on a daily basis?
We usually have more questions than answers, but this is when we need to have our heart open to hearing, seeing and sensing the answers. When we receive messages from our angelic guides and helpers, which we do get all the time, it is being receptive and sensitive and listening to what our heart is telling us.
My recent experience happened when I was out walking a couple of days ago. I was in deep contemplation about things happening in my life and asking spirit to help enlighten me to get some direction or at least to understand what was happening and if it was coming to an end sometime sooner rather than later .
I was mulling over possibilities in my mind, as we do in our humanness. I am a true believer that out of something bad always comes something good. And sometimes we need to go through this to embrace this aspect more. So what was I missing? There had to be something I was missing in this chaotic scenario. Maybe it needed to occur based on the relationship of cause and effect.
All the time, like all of us, I was waiting for a sign.... confirmation or just something to help me keep focused. You know what I mean... should I keep going or change direction, or maybe give up on this latest adventure. As a child I was told that everything comes to those who wait, and although my predicament wasn’t life threatening, it was extremely frustrating, consuming my energy beyond redemption because my human energy had stepped into it.
I continued walking along enjoying the day, in deep meditative connection with Mother Nature. I needed this time, to keep myself centred not letting this overwhelming feeling in my gut control my vibrational frequency.
And there it was on the pathway, right in front of me... a grey & black feather. I knew it was for me because I had walked this same part of the path less than an hour earlier and it was there. So I picked it up and thanked spirit for giving me this beautiful and significant sign that I was being protected by my angels. This feather was a sign bringing forth spiritual wisdom and peace within, letting me know that a message will be sent with the answer to the question you have asked. Thank you, thank you, thank you I cried from within.
But spirit wanted me to really know that they were there for me because holding my feather as I walked, a tiny black butterfly flew up and almost landed on my nose. So I knew there was going to be a shift in power relating to what I had been asking. When I gave thanks, I could feel tears filling my eyes. I felt a peace resonating within my heart, and I knew that even though at this exact moment I couldn’t see the wood for the trees, a positive change would be occurring soon.
I slept more peacefully that night and awoke the next morning to the wind creating angelic music through the venting in my condo. Not a sound had I heard like it ever before in the three years living there. As I listened, again this overwhelming feeling of tranquility filled my soul frequency, my vibration felt like it could let go of the thoughts, the questions, the concerns because spirit now had this in hand and were working on it.
Would the shift take place relating to what I was asking? I truly didn’t know, but within my heart chakra was a sense of calmness, stillness had filled my whole spiritual and physical body. In my serenity there was once again stillness and tranquility knowing that this was in the hands of the divine Universal force we call God...... Jesus..... Buddha..... Allah. Whatever name you pray or meditate to doesn’t matter, because our prayers are always answered. We just have to take the time to listen and keep believing.

There is much in life that we don’t have answers for and yet we forge ahead hoping to find our way.
We trust in a force, be it God or our higher self, and sometimes get to find the knowledge that will guide us.
Now and then, without even realizing, our soul gives us what we need.
Our friends, loved ones, family – whatever we hold dear to us, moves us to the point of hope.
We can only move forward. Our past is behind us. Our future, without knowing its path, lies ahead.
Some tread tenderly, others rough ride the road and hope it will in return bring them to their goal.
Our purpose. Our focus.
Whatever that is, we seem to hold it dear to our heart.
Should we fail? Will we succeed? Do we know what lies at the end of the journey? Is it fear or hope that makes us who we are?
If there is a God or universal force, does it care either way?
Can we know that?
The questions outweigh the answers. And should we actually find the answers, do we know for sure that they are correct for us?
Life, is for living..... but do we know if we are living our life as it should be lived?
There is no jury to decide. There is no paper, certificate at the end of the road saying we have passed with honours.
Only our soul knows for sure.
But will our memory, like footprints in the sand, be erased when we move on to the next life?
Or will the imprint still be there deep within us..................
Ultimately, this is YOUR life and the way you lead it is up to YOU... no pressure. My hope is that whatever you do, you just DO IT and do it vibrationally!

While re-visiting some of my past writing, I came across a poem I had written in January 1989. Wow, that is 28 years ago!
At the time I sensed the spiritual work I was doing was being judged as evil, so I wanted some guidance from the God within me.
Acceptance of what I do was not as open and receptive as it is now, and being a sensitive I took on the hurt & ignorance that was being thrown at me.
Although our world is more enlightened today, I do still encounter fear of my spiritual work, as I am sure many of you do too.
Maybe my words resonate with you, or you have your own. Either way, never fear what is within you spiritually, because eventually we all find our own way. It's all about your intention!
I came across this quote from the Bible, which I feel says it all. “For God gave us a spirit not of fear, but of power and love and self control.” (Timothy 1:7)

Sometimes the path I tread is hard & makes me want to cry,
Feeling like a door slamming shut, and I wonder why
No one said life was easy, and I don’t want it that way.
But now I wonder what I did wrong, as I sit and pray.
If you can hear me dear God above
My heart is filled with your sweet love.
I try to do your work so well
But teach me right so I can excel.
I need to learn, but please show me how
Because the world needs LOVE, yours right now!
The silence around me seemed far too great
I wondered how long I should sit and wait.
But no host of angels or music sweet
Just a tingling through my body down to my feet.
A voice deep from within me, a sense I cried
Foolish girl, not only for you that he died.
God’s busy now, so he’s sent me through
To help YOU see what YOU need to do.
I’m just a helper, a guide you might say
To help you question and to find your way.
How do you learn, so you can teach?
Just sit here and listen, I will not preach.
Sometimes when you feel you’ve lost your way
Accept the life’s lessons you learn each day.
Experience comes as you change & grow
Always keeping you in the Universal flow.
We have all had those week’s when things don’t necessarily go to plan… it’s called life!
Even if you place all your faith in God or whomever you believe and rejoice to, there are just those times when you are tested a tad more than you truly expect or want.
I suppose it is the “why” and “how” questions that we enter into when things don’t quite go according to plan. The “how” and “why” elements immediately shift us into our ego, our human part of our being, especially when we feel it is something we have or haven’t done. It is the immediate mental flagellating or flogging we use to blame ourselves for allowing things to transpire the way they did.
Whereas the letting go element is based on pure faith. Trust you might call it, that sometimes, things happen for a reason. Even if we cannot fully comprehend exactly the mystery or sequence of events around what happened, it is the acceptance and belief that it should have transpired that way. Faith is that unrequited element that no matter how bad things seem to get, that there is a greater plan that we are not privy to…. Yet.
At the point we move from head to heart, we are centred in our vibrational energy, our core soul cellular part of us. This is the component that sometimes moves us in a slightly different direction in order to create some shift or modification that we wouldn’t necessarily invite towards us.
When we start that particular day or period before things start changing and fluctuating, you could say we are at ground zero. It is only when we are flung headlong into the struggles that transpire, that we need to become heart centred, and pull from the spiritual resources within to allow our highest good or God as I call it, to guide and direct us in hope and love.
Our higher self or God element is the part that truly lets go and bonds with the divine vibration so we can be lifted up, removing the fears and doubts that do reside within. It is certainly not relinquishing responsibility, it is the calm that enters inside our energy being in peace and reassurance. Some call it the “ah ha” moment. It is that magical part of us, that sudden realization, that we just feel or sense that everything is going to be okay.
Our body, mind and soul have connected in completeness, so we become whole. That uplifting feeling that the burdens and troubles are being handled, and it is not for us to sweat about it, but to move forward in acceptance and enchantment.
The incredible part about any journey is the story behind it. For me, writing any article or blog is about the preparation on a particular subject. Sometimes when I struggle with the context or wording and direction I reach up to spirit for guidance. Just so you know, my week, up to this point had been going extremely well, so how could I write about faith and letting go in an empowering way. This is the word of caution I offer to you, be careful what you wish for……
Just this week I was unexpectedly cast into two situations of such testing. Nothing truly major, but for me, when the first occurrence happened, I momentarily stepped into “how” and “why”. Initially, my Facebook pages had been disabled, or removed by the Facebook Gods so I was caught up momentarily in paranoia and "why me". More because I am not a tech savvy type of gal, so anything that happens in this genre is always a challenge.
The second was more on a personal level. For anyone who knows me, I am not a vain person, and although image is important, it isn’t paramount. But I do enjoy having long hair. I suppose this stems back to when I was younger and had the basic pudding basin cut. So as I got older I allowed my hair to grow and I suppose I have gotten used to it being that way. But with hair it needs professional attention, so I called my hairdresser and went in for a basic trim, asking her to take it to shoulder length, cutting away all the dead stuff.
It was a great morning, the sun was shining for the first time in a while, and as we chatted about my work and her work she started cutting away at my hair. I was totally unaware that one side was quite a lot shorter than the other until her scissors took off the last hairs on my right side. Somehow, to her dismay and disbelief, she had cut off more than either of us wanted. I wasn’t in total shock, until I realized that the only way to rectify this problem was to chop off the long side to align with the much shorter side. After all, she could hardly glue it back together again....
I certainly didn’t want to open up the conversation on “why” and “how” which is what my hairdresser kept doing while apologizing. I reassured her that it was fine, and left endeavoring to accept that perhaps there was a bigger force at work behind all this. After all the summer was just arriving, so perhaps having shorter hair was the way to go? It was totally pointless going into the punishment mentality, because I am positive it wasn’t God’s will.
Maybe it was my spirit guides and angels way of giving me these experiences so I could fully appreciate how to write this article in a more divinely understanding way.
I truly believe so. And for me, I know that having to change my pages to align them with Facebook protocol will benefit me in a far greater way… and eventually my hair will grow back.
I suppose ultimately it is about letting go and letting God take up the slack on my behalf.

On the first day, God created the dog and said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years."
The dog said, "That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?"
And God saw it was good.
On the second day, God created the monkey and said, "Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span."
The monkey said, "Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the dog did?"
And God, again saw it was good.
On the third day, God created the cow and said,"You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years."
The cow said, "That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?"
And God agreed it was good.
On the fourth day, God created humans and said, "Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years."
But the human said, "Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?"
"Okay," said God, "You asked for it."
So that is why for our first twenty years, we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves.
For the next forty years, we slave in the sun to support our family.
For the next ten years, we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years, we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.
Life has now been explained to you!
This was such a beautiful analogy and a bit of fun, so I hope you enjoyed it!! Vibrational sharing, Debbie A. Anderson
Yesterday I was out golfing with my hubby Chris. It was a beautiful day, not too hot, just right, as the baby bear in Goldilocks would say.
We try to get out at least once a week (if not more) to embrace both the joy of exercise and the bliss of relaxing. And, Yes, amazingly enough, I have now come to the place of acceptance that even though I am still learning, I can play a round of golf and just have fun!
My week to that point had been a little busier than other weeks. Working on the children’s deck, which is a blessing, but when you self-publish there is more to coordinate than just achieving the writing. But now that spirit have sent me both an amazing illustrator and graphic setter, I know that it is all coming together as it should. I had an increase in readings, which I am privileged to undertake, and this week had brought myself and others a great deal of proof from spirit.
Which brings me to my latest project, which seems to be guided by the direction of those around me, who see more in me than I am ready to embrace. Organizing an evening of clairvoyance, something I have not done before and was in my own way, feeling the apprehension of whether this was the right time to extend myself to working with a group rather than individuals.
I suppose you could say I was pondering whether spirit really wanted this to happen or not, even though the loving people I have in my life at the moment seemed sure it was the right time. Yes, I like everyone questions myself, it is called being human. For me it is about the humility of being who I am.
So, while playing my golf I asked spirit whether this upcoming event, which I felt should be for a charitable cause, was something they truly wanted to emerge. My cell vibrated, and I answered it hearing the voice of another person wanting to add more people to the evening’s list. This small event was now full and on thanking spirit in my heart, I heard Chris say, “wow, look at that” pointing to the sky “I have never seen a full circle sun dog before”.
I looked upwards to see this phenomenon of circular glowing around the sun with further circles creating like an aura or halo effect. This process is known, I found out later, as a tri-fractory rainbow, because the light is refracted three times before it is finally observed. The sun dog is a rare marvel that was named by Native Americans, a name that is now used by scientists around the world.
At that moment I felt so connected with the Universal source I almost wanted to cry. I felt like my whole soul was connected and aligned with the energy of my world and at peace and hope within my own spirit.
For me, it felt like spirit were giving me the thumbs up that everything I was doing was just as it should be, just when it should be.
Being open and perceptively conscious of the messages we are sent, can help reconnect us to our soul purpose.
I hope that you see your own sun dogs, if not in reality then within yourself. Being witness to such a vibrational miracle made me feel more connected and aligned than ever before. For this I am blessed.

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