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.

Today, being April Fool’s day will have many of us enjoying playing pranks in a light hearted way. But let’s step back from our modern day aspect because in ancient cultures April 1st was celebrating the beginning of a New Year... a fresh start... a clean sweep... and along with that, new opportunities.
Even the Fool Card in Tarot depicts that they have relinquished responsibilities... let go... have the freedom to do what they want.... sort of like the wild card.... knowing that chances, opportunities are there if they just seek them out.
So today, if you are to do anything, (other than having fun) take a moment to utilize this day (yes, all of it) to explore what vibrational possibilities are there opening up for you.
Call it fate, destiny or just tapping into your spiritual vibration and venturing forward not being the Fool with your life.

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!

This is a wonderful, so I want to share it... I apologize for not giving credit to the author, but thank them for being so wise...... enjoy.....
Why do I have a variety of friends who are all so different in character? How is it possible that I can get along with them all?
I think that each one helps to bring out a "different" part of me. With one of them I am polite. With another I joke, with another I can be a bit naughty... I can sit down and talk about serious matters with one.
With another I laugh a lot. I listen to one friend's problems. Then I listen to another one's advice for me.
My friends are like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. When completed, they form a treasure box. A treasure of friends! They are my friends who understand me better than I understand myself. They're friends who support me through good days and bad.
Real Age doctors tell us that friends are good for our health. Dr. Oz calls them Vitamin F (for Friends) and counts the benefits of friends as essential to our well being. Research shows that people in strong social circles have less risk of depression and terminal strokes.
If you enjoy Vitamin F constantly you can be up to 30 years younger than your real age. The warmth of friendship stops stress and even in your most intense moments, it decreases the chance of a cardiac arrest or stroke by 50%. I'm so happy that I have a stock of Vitamin F!
In summary, we should value our friends and keep in touch with them. We should try to see the funny side of things and laugh together and pray for each other in the tough moments.
SOME OF MY FRIENDS ARE FRIENDS ON LINE. I KNOW I AM PART OF THEIRS BECAUSE THEIR NAMES APPEAR ON MY COMPUTER SCREEN OFTEN AND I FEEL
BLESSED THAT THEY CARE AS MUCH FOR ME AS I CARE FOR THEM.
THANK YOU FOR BEING ONE OF MY VITAMINS!
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING ABOUT FRIENDSHIP IS THAT WE CAN GROW SEPARATELY WITHOUT GROWING APART.
And by the way, this applies to family too...... so have a vibrational day enjoying your dose of Vitamin F!!!

Tomorrow is 888. August (8th month), 8th day, and 2015 = 8. So a very powerful combination!!
It’s all about manifesting abundance and inviting in that vibrational flow of infinite amazement.
The “biggy” on our side of the fence, that is our humanness, needs to be kept in check. Basically don’t let yourself be pulled in the direction of negativity if things don’t work out right first time.
This powerful number is the vibration of keeping things in a down to earth practicality. For instance, don’t dream of owning a large yacht if you haven’t got the knowledge of sailing or are not good at sea. Dream yourself a dream of what you can and will utilize for your personal self.
Manifesting with 888 is about the vibration of realism and usefulness. If your car is dying, then it is evident that you need a car that is reliable, inexpensive to run, safe etc. You can see where I am going with this. Keep it real for you.
Of course I add my note of caution to your wishing. With every dream comes responsibility and taking ownership for our actions. So, as it is said, be careful what you dream for… because you may get it!
Dreaming or wishing is the combination of our thoughts and actions that create the balance in our physical soul being, and so it is thus in our spiritual world. The two are in tandem with each other. You only have to look at the figure 8 to realize there is no beginning and no end. It just keeps looping around and around, in infinity. The universal flow which is the synergy of harmony vibrating within our inner and outer world, like us they are connected.
Like any time in our lives, we have the potential to draw upon our angels, guides and helpers. So if you are not truly positive about what you want, ask them for guidance. They seem to know, and they will let us know in no uncertain terms because they want us to live our life to its full potential. That is why they are there – for us!
When we reach out to the Universe, we are vibrationally supported – so reach out and tap into your 888 abundance!!

When I count my blessings I count them twice and for that I am vibrationally blessed. For many, the ability to count blessings isn’t always that easy. Here is the story of just one boy, who was blessed in a way that later vibrationally made our world wonderful. I am quite sure by the end of this blog you will recognize him. Vibrational Sharing Debbie A Anderson
Written by others:
A Grandson of slaves, a boy was born in a poor neighborhood of New Orleans known as the "Back of Town."
His father abandoned the family when the child was an infant, His mother became a prostitute and the boy and his sister had to live with their grandmother. Early in life he proved to be gifted for music and with three other kids he sang in the streets of New Orleans. His first gains were the coins that were thrown to them.
A Jewish family, Karnofsky, who had immigrated from Lithuania to the USA had pity for the 7-year-old boy and brought him into their home. Initially given 'work' in the house, to feed this hungry child. There he remained and slept in this Jewish families home where, for the first time in his life he was treated with kindness and tenderness.
When he went to bed, Mrs. Karnovsky sang him a Russian Lullaby that he would sing with her. Later, he learned to sing and play several Russian and Jewish songs. Over time, this boy became the adopted son of this family. The Karnofsky’s gave him money to buy his first musical instrument; as was the custom in the Jewish families. They sincerely admired his musical talent. Later, when he became a professional musician and composer, he used these Jewish melodies in compositions, such as St. James Infirmary and Go Down Moses.
The little black boy grew up and wrote a book about this Jewish family who had adopted him in 1907. In memory of this family and until the end of his life, he wore a star of David and said that in this family he had learned "how to live real life and determination."
You might recognize him… This little boy was Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong (August 4, 1901 – July 6, 1971). As the song goes… “……….what a wonderful world…..”.
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
The secret to being rich lies in remembering that friendships are priceless, time is invaluable, health is wealth, and love is a treasure.
Create a nest egg of beautiful memories that you can dip into from time to time to ease any sorrows.
Have the kind of remembrances that raise you up with their worth and keep you there with their wonder.
Always have a supply of hopes on hand to help you plan your tomorrows.
Remember that when you invest in your dreams, it is impossible to overpay.
Give away smiles, and watch them come back to you a hundred times over.
Stuff your pockets with kindness and optimism; there is nothing more precious in the world.
I'm sharing this advice with you today because you are a treasured piece in the puzzle of my life.
I know I am rich on every level because of the blessings I receive every single moment of every single day, so thanked you for being in my life! Vibrational Thanks Debbie A. Anderson
To everyone, My Vibrational prayer for you all is …. have no regrets, take chances, live a life that's full, you love, laugh & cry, once in a while bite off more than you can chew, and finally....much more than this....is I hope in life you do it your way!! Vibrational Blessings, Debbie A. Anderson
And now, the end is near;
And so I face the final curtain.
My friend, I'll say it clear,
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain.
I've lived a life that's full.
I've traveled each and ev'ry highway;
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.
Regrets, I've had a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.
I planned each charted course;
Each careful step along the byway,
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.
Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall;
And did it my way.
I've loved, I've laughed and cried.
I've had my fill; my share of losing.
And now, as tears subside,
I find it all so amusing.
To think I did all that;
And may I say - not in a shy way,
"Oh no, oh no not me,
I did it my way".
For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught.
To say the things he truly feels;
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows -
And did it my way!
Yes, it was my way!!!

At Christmas time I believe the things that children do:
I believe with English children
that holly placed in windows will protect our homes from evil.
I believe with Swiss children
that the touch of Edelweiss will charm a person with love.
I believe with Italian children
that La Befana is not an ugly doll but a good fairy who will gladden the heart of all.
I believe with Greek children
that coins concealed in freshly baked loaves of bread will bring good luck to anyone who finds them.
I believe with German children
that the sight of a Christmas tree will lessen hostility among adults.
I believe with French children
that lentils soaked and planted in a bowl will rekindle life in people who have lost hope.
I believe with Dutch children
that the horse Sleipner will fly through the sky and fill the earth with joy.
I believe with Swedish children
that Jultomte will come and deliver gifts to the poor as well as to the rich.
I believe with Finnish children
that parties held on St.Stephen's Day will erase sorrow.
I believe with Danish children
that the music of a band playing from a church tower will strengthen humankind.
I believe with Bulgarian children
that sparks from a Christmas log will create warmth in human souls.
I believe with American children
that the sending of Christmas cards will build friendships.
I believe with all children that there will be peace on earth.
