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.

Sunday, November 11, 2018 at 11am is sequential 11.
This is a time for you to be present and intentional in your thoughts as manifestation on your focus (thoughts) is what will transpire.
Seeing the number 1 repeating itself is a VERY positive sign, and a VERY powerful vibrational time for focusing your heart centred thoughts on what you want, need and desire in your life.
It is a time to release any negative emotions that maybe holding you back from achieving the transformation within you.... so as the movie FROZEN states... let it go, let it go, let it go.....
This gateway of the duality of the Oneness is open to inviting us to walk on our pathway of Universal love and acceptance. KNOWING, yep, that’s right, knowing that whatever you either positively or negatively think (the dual edged sword) influences us at this time. I know I will be open to whatever new and exciting synchronistic activation spirit sends to me, in total Vibrational Trust!
I have shared with many of you, that this year, 2018 is the year of shedding off anything that is holding us back. Digging up any skeletons that we buried without releasing... letting go of ANYTHING that no longer serves us. This eleventh month, just like the eleventh hour in decision making is very integral... and opening up that energetic gateway into our spiritual realm of completeness.
Remember the only thing you own is your thoughts, so be wise to what you invite in at this time. This is a VERY clear and concise message from our angels, guardians and spirit helpers/guides. Therefore your thoughts can and will manifest into your reality.
So, what will you take the time to focus on at 11am on November 11, 2018?
The list is infinite and only you and your beliefs will bring you into your vibrational enlightenment.
How do you manifest at this time? Easy, sit in peace and quietness, (yes, that means turning off your electronics) at 11am (wherever in the world you live) and set your intention to what you want, need and desire within your life... your world... our Universe. The choice is yours.
Sit and listen to what that intentional vibration means to you. That means connecting in your heart, not your head.
Take some nice gentle breaths. Breathe in what you need, want, desire and as you breathe out release what you no longer need-anything that doesn't serve you. Continue doing this over and over again.... slowly.... listening to your heart as you feel what it is sharing with you.... do this for ONE MINUTE... yes, wow, that long!!!
If you are NOT sure that what you want is right for you.... add to the end of your request.... this or something to my highest good..... or this or something better. That way you are not locked into anything other than what spirit feel is what you need based on your request (smile).
When the minute is finished, thank your guides, helpers, angels... the Universe... take one last nice cleansing breath, and let it go. Now go and enjoy the rest of the day knowing you have taken the time for that connection with 11 : 11 : 11 : 11.

I have to admit that I haven’t written a blog in some time, and it isn’t for the lack of trying. Today I am sharing a beautiful blog written by a friend of mine, Caroline Kimsey, amazing healer and all round spiritual vibration.
It is heart-felt, and that is very important... it focuses on us, loving us first and foremost, something I try to remind you... and myself. So read, interpret and absorb what fits in your world in this moment.
Hearts are appearing everywhere reminding us of this wonderful energy we have inside of us. Our heart energy is always elevated and vibrates fully when we practice self love. Self Love being the true knowing of who we are and healing the parts of us that separate us from our authentic self allowing us to have a respectful, kind and loving relationship with our self which then will emanate into all our relationships. The wisdom of Shakespeare still encourages us to be the best we can today: “This Above All, To thine own self be true.”
I know every one of us is on our own healing journey in whatever way we feel guided to. I think this is the true gift of self love because until we can address, go through our wounds and come out the other side, we cannot heal them. Building these new foundations or planting these healthy gardens is our gift to our “self” and I know it takes courage. I applaud you all for loving yourselves enough to have the courage to do this and for the change you make to the collective energy with each step to wholeness you take.
Every one of us struggles with judgment. We judge other people's politics, words, clothing, appearance, parenting choice etc, etc, etc. To the point that we don't even notice anymore! It has become a habit/addiction usually started in childhood by those around us and then carried on. Also it is something we can turn on ourselves perpetuating the untruths people told us over our lives. Next time you notice you are judging yourself or others instead of listening to the words take a moment to listen to the voice. If you listen carefully you will probably begin to identify other people - parent’s maybe? Peers? Friends? Work Colleagues? Note other peoples' judgements you have taken on and use. When we do this, it's much easier to stop, as we can see how this is not OUR heart speaking.
Judgement is the opposite too self love, no matter who it is directed too. It's a habit that you can break with mindfulness and it will give you a lot more peace when you do. Gabrielle Bernstein, author of Judgment Detox: Release the Beliefs That Hold You Back from Living a Better Life wrote this:
Judging gives you a hangover
When we judge, we get an instant hit of self-righteousness, but subconsciously we know we're separating ourselves from who we really are: compassionate, kind people. As a result, we feel guilty once our high wears off—and to avoid that feeling, we have to judge someone else. This cycle weakens us mentally and physically.
Judging isolates you
We develop addictions because we're trying to numb a core wound, which is usually rooted in childhood. Maybe someone told you that you weren't good enough, or you experienced some other kind of trauma that left you feeling all alone. To avoid experiencing that pain again, you project it onto others by pointing out their flaws. Our fear leads us to attack—but re-enacting the trauma of the past only creates more loneliness and disconnection.
Judging prevents healing
You have to be willing to look at your darkness in order to see the light. That's why the first step in a judgment detox is just to witness it without blaming ourselves. We judge because we're separated from love; to stop the cycle, we have to cultivate self-love. The second step is to honor that core wound. Next time you have the urge to judge, ask yourself what moment from the past is triggering you to feel this way. When we can understand ourselves, healing begins.
Judging leaves you powerless
Many people feel safer when they judge, as if they're controlling their circumstances, but hatred only creates more hatred. Those hours you might spend fuming about the news, for instance, could be used in a more positive way, like volunteering for a cause you care about, engaging in creative projects or spending quality time with people you love. Recovering from judgment addiction gives us back our power and lifts up everyone around us, too.
To heal the world, we have to live the truth in every corner of our lives. Recovery isn't easy—but when we let go of judgment, we make room for love and joy. It's like staying sober: You can't really enjoy a drink again because you know how good it feels to live without it.
I certainly couldn’t have written this better than Caroline, so I give heartfelt thanks for her sharing this with us all. We cannot begin to walk our walk.. speak our truth until we love our “self” first and foremost, and most of all doing that unconditionally.
This month is February, the month of love, so start cultivating and nurturing you with the love YOU deserve. It takes practice.. and we all know practice makes perfect.
Vibrational Blessings, Debbie
Sometimes things.... life don’t quite go the way we planned. And sometimes, during that chaotic interlude, we can have our world turned upside down and inside out even if we feel we are spiritually attuned. Yes, that is right, perfection in all things can take time so don’t beat yourself up. (smile)
This time of year especially can push all those buttons and momentarily have us spiralling down that rabbit hole of doubt.
Just a while ago I encountered something that rocked my world. Seems this year for me has been related to integrity and honor or should I say the lack of it in many humans and light workers at the moment. So when it hit me, I felt like someone had punched me in the stomach and I was spiritually winded. I kept hearing spirit saying over and over to me, this is just a glitch, let it go... you are blessed, you are blessed.
That afternoon I opened an email from Caroline Kimsey, the leader of a wonderful virtual healing group I belong to who sent us all the story of the snow globe which I am sharing with you today.
She wrote “I was thinking that each of our lives is rather like being in a snow globe. In the middle is us and we fill our "globe" with the people and animals we love, then add layers of other things we enjoy having around us ... imprinting each snow flake in our globe with the energy that makes us happy, safe and generally at peace.
But sometimes at the bottom of the globe are old snowflakes imprinted with things that no longer fit or serve our lives that we have taken on from others or perhaps misunderstood when we were younger and made a part of our inner world. These still lie under the surface while we carry on making our new memories and joy and then all of a sudden something or someone comes and shakes it all up. When our globe is really shaken (which is exactly what it feels like to me when I get discombobulated by an unexpected happening). The things buried deep beneath the surface are stirred up and we feel unable to centre for a while until we ground and breath and take stock of "What just happened".
But remember the snowflakes in the air are full of the things that are your truth now.... are what you want in your life that you have made for yourself. I think the best thing about having your personal snow globe shaken up is discovering what does need to be let go off and what you are still holding on to and not only gaining your own equilibrium more quickly, but getting to a stage where you can stand steady in the middle of your world without being shaken up yourself and possible calm others too.
I saw someone very dear to me who was in most ways having a very positive and good events happening in her life. But one thing came along which shook up her personal globe and she could not see the other lovely things around her. She could only focus on the perceived negative one, almost in a way shaking the debris in her own world and not allowing herself to centre and see things more clearly.
We can all do this at times, but if we really want to love ourselves and others we need to try not to, or at least let ourselves settle as quickly as possible. If we even hold on to one thing that over stimulates our nervous system we cannot have calm in our inner or outer world”.
I always share, that spirit will send us a message... a communication when we need it. That day spirit sent me the vibrational words of Caroline Kimsey, in such divine timing.
In this next short while, when we get busy for the celebrations ahead, take a moment to sit in stillness... reconnect to the inner YOU vibration, and if others around you shake up your snow globe... take some beautiful cleansing breathes and remind yourself how far you have come in your life..... why you chose what you do.... in life....... with your family & friends and in your Universe. Then exhale knowing all this too shall pass and all will be well.
Sometimes when we are in awareness, the divine enters into our soul, so listen and be heart centred always. Be in joy and gratitude of the way they make sure we get the answers we need WHEN we need them.

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.
Vibrational Blessings, Debbie
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.
Vibrational Blessings, Debbie

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