As you go about your day remember, "As I walk in this world the Light of God emanates from me purifying all that I pass, healing all that I pass, loving all that I pass, harmonizing all that I pass. All that I pass, whether people, animals, plants, places or the elementals, the Light of God that shines through me affects all, therefore, my mind is pure and my heart is pure, for as I think, feel and do, I qualify God's Light. And as pure as my heart and mind are that is how pure God's Light will be and how effective it will be as I walk."
Happy St. Patrick's Day to you and your loved ones. St. Patrick was an extraordinary saint who, according to "Confessio," was kidnapped at the age of 16 and brought to Ireland as a slave. During captivity he developed and strengthened his relationship with God. After the six years of captivity he had a vision telling him to return to his home where he continued to immerse himself in the teachings of Christ. A few years later he received another vision to return to Ireland to help the people. Maybe, in the beginning, he did not know why such a horrific situation such as slavery should be brought upon him, but when we look deeper we see that it was a divine act, for St. Patrick brought to the people of Ireland the true teachings of Christ. He taught the Irish people that the Kingdom of God was within them and could not be found anywhere outside of themselves. He brought Jesus' true teachings to the people as we are all called to do. When we're celebrating today let's remember the true teachings of St. Patrick and reflect on the God within us. Let's remember who we truly are and why we have come.

Celebrate the Resurrection of the Christ in you this Easter with the new book release: Be a God: Prayers for the Intrepid.
Be a God: Prayers for the Intrepid is an inspirational book of 25 prayers and illustrations that will assist you in dying to the old self and being reborn to the new. Easter is the perfect time of year to celebrate the resurrection of the Christ within you. As Jesus resurrected on this glorious day, you, too, are asked to die to the old self and be reborn to the new.
Each prayer and illustration will catapult you to the next level of awareness for which you are ready. Prayer is traditionally used as a powerful tool to call upon the assistance of Spirit. But there is another way to utilize prayer and that is to assist you in realizing who you truly are. Through the meditation upon, focus and repetition of a single prayer in “Be a God” you are calling forth your Divine Self to flood your consciousness. The results of these actions, practiced unfailingly and embodied fully, will set you on a course towards a more profound connection to Spirit thereby awakening within you the memory of who you truly are, where you came from and your life's purpose. Meditating on each prayer will open the door for Spirit to impress upon you higher thoughts about your true nature thereby assisting you in the resurrection.
Each prayer is followed by an illustration that enhances the meaning of the prayer and adds an additional layer of understanding. When asked why she included the illustrations Nicole states, “I was inspired to add the illustrations by Spirit and when you are inspired to do something you must do it.” She then adds, “We are visual creations and the illustrations are a story in and of themselves that not only enrich the prayer but will speak to you on many levels of your being. I suggest you meditate on both the prayer and illustration. Take your time and allow the God within you to reveal wonderful things about your journey to wholeness that you never knew before.”
Be a God is suitable for all ages and denominations. “The book is not affiliated with any particular religious or spiritual belief,” says Nicole, “It is meant for all of us no matter our denomination or non-denomination because we are all a part of the Body of God. We are all manifestations of the one true God and Be a God is meant to help you realize that.”
Be a God: Prayers for the Intrepid is available for pre-order in eBook format from your favorite retailers such as,
The official release is March 30, 2018. The paperback version will follow shortly.

Justice is always served no matter if we believe so or not. Sometimes we get upset because we feel like someone or some entity is "getting away with it." But God sees all and knows all and God's laws are always just and carried out. We must leave all judgements to God if we are to find salvation.
My new book, Be a God: Prayers for the Intrepid, is set to be released early Spring! Will be ready for pre-order in eBook format shortly. I'm very excited about this one.
In times of crisis the most challenging thing for us to do is to keep our peace; to keep our connection to the Most High. If we lose our peace we have given in to the prince of this world who, in every moment, is clamoring for our attention. Rest assured that whatever crisis you are witness to is nothing but an image that was created from a lower sense of self. It can not harm you. It is unreal. Look to the real; look to God and you will be set free.
There are many reasons why prayers seemingly go unanswered. Here are a few:
The person praying, on a deeper level, has decided to go through what h/she is going through so that they can show others that it is indeed possible to rise above what they are experiencing and so it may seem as if the prayer is going unanswered.
The person is not fully ready to transcend his/her current situation that is being prayed for.
The person, when praying, is not wholly focused in the moment and, thus, the powers of the Universe, the Creator, delivers accordingly.
The person does not really want to "heal" from the situation.
The person has not found another way of being and so s/he can not fully transcend the situation.
The person is fearful of moving forward and so holds her/himself back unconsciously.
Prayers ultimately are answered. It is up to us to accept what we are praying for. It sounds silly to believe that we would not want our prayers answered and knowingly hold ourselves back from receiving, but when you are able to see the beam in your own eye you will understand how this is possible.
When you find yourself seeking the approval of others, whether it be the approval, or recognition, of a parent, a spouse, a friend, an employer, a coworker etc., realize that it is a false desire. The true desire that is hidden beneath this false desire of approval is the true desire to be one with God. It is God's love we ultimately all seek on a deeper level of our being. We, as humans, have perverted this true desire into seeking recognition and approval in this world. So, when you catch yourself doing, saying, thinking or being something that is in line with seeking approval from that which is outside of God remind yourself that it is untrue, remind yourself that it is God you seek, and then realize that you do not need to do anything in order to receive God's unconditional love. He adores you, for he sees you as you truly are.
Happy Martin Luther King Day to you and your loved ones. Martin Luther King is a symbol of equal rights, of freedom, not just for blacks but for all people of this world - no matter the color of their skin. He preached equal rights for the blacks but on a deeper level he preached freedom of the mind. Freedom to think the thoughts of the part of ourselves that is of God. Thinking from the point of view of God is where true freedom lies. When we freely think from God and get rid of the beam in our own eyes then we can truly see each other as children of God and not what we are on the outside, which has no baring on our true identity. Martin Luther King saw this and he knew this on every level of his being. He was the Light of God as we ALL are. Freedom to think will truly set us free, will truly strip us of all thoughts of inequality. No one can set us free but ourselves. No one can make us feel equal but ourselves. We must not rely on others to free us of our imagined problems or we will bind ourselves to them. We were all born free and equal, and we are all free and equal now. God offers us freedom. It is our choice to accept it. Together, let's set ourselves free from all of our problems, all of our hate, anger, jealousy, envy, pride and all negative emotions towards ourselves and each other. When we do this we will understand what true equality is from the point of view of God.
Working on my new book titled, "Christmas," a delightful and thought-provoking book about a young boy named Dexter who discovers the true meaning of Christmas and, in the process, finds a new and unexpected friend. I'm looking to complete it sometime in mid-2018, God willing.
No one can harm you when you are sealed in the Light of God.
Say this pray many times a day. Memorize it. Use whatever you are needing to pray for at the moment. For ex., You may want to replace I am strong with I am worthy and so I stand here worthy etc. Keep saying the prayer until you feel what you want to be. It works.
If we can think and talk constantly about politics, the latest news, celebrities, food, music, movies, the most popular shows and all the other things of this world then we should also, and more importantly, be thinking and talking constantly about God. Praying without ceasing is just that. And why is it more beneficial to think and talk constantly about God then about the madness in this world? Well, because when we pray without ceasing God works, God answers, God manifests, God rejoices, God fulfills desires, God loves, God lives, God has an outlet to bring the Kingdom of Heaven down to earth. Pray without ceasing.
When we pray intently, and invoke the Light of God, sometimes we see things happen that we do not like. We say, "But I was praying for good things. Why am I seeing so many bad things? Is this my fault?" No, it is not your fault. Sometimes when we pray and invoke the Light of God the darkness shows itself and challenges us. Our prayers flush the darkness out. Do not stop praying. Allow God to do his work the way in which he sees fit. It is our job to be the instrument for his Light to flow through so that he can do his work. Rest assured that your prayers matter.
When in doubt of what to think about or if you're just idling and waiting for something to happen think about God. Actually, God is the only subject worth thinking about. Everything else pales in comparison, for what else can you think about that will strengthen you at the very core of your being?
If we all stopped watching the news, and TV in general, just for one day we would see a major shift in consciousness that would change this world for the better. Then imagine we decided to stop watching for two days, then three and so on. Imagine what the world would be like.
There are no random acts. God, the Universe, is organized. Things happen for a reason, therefore, if we desire to know the truth behind any given situation we must look for the cause and not at the effect. There are no secrets with God. All that you desire to know is readily available to you and must be revealed when asked. The key is to go within, ask, and then patiently wait for an answer. Do not ask your question in judgement of anyone or anything. The question must be asked from the heart and with love and understanding and must not be asked for the purpose of condemnation. God does not condemn nor judge and thus if we are to be like God, and shine our light, then we must not condemn nor judge. You will receive your answer and you will know that the answer you receive is the truth by the way it makes you feel, for when you are in the state of consciousness that Jesus attained then you have the clear understanding of how and why things happen and thus your heart will be set at ease.
If you are out of work, whether unemployed at the moment or retired, God would love for you to volunteer. Why? Because when you are active in the world you allow God to work through you more effectively. When you work with individuals, whether children, homeless, disabled, and/or animals, you become the light of the world for God. Through you, God uplifts others to greatness, thereby lifting you up as well. You are needed in this world. Have fun!
Everyone wants love and if we can be that love in the world then let's be it. Choose love.
Many ask, "How can I love those who do "wrong," those who hurt me and others, those who deliberately do harm etc.?" The answer is to love God first and foremost. When you love God you love yourself when you love yourself you are able to love others. God loves all equally no matter what they have done that we deem as wrong. When we learn to love God and ourselves and allow God to love us then we will understand fully how God loves all equally. It is only when we can say, as Jesus said, "I and my Father are One," that we can truly understand how and why God loves all without judgement. When we are able to say Jesus' words then all will be revealed to us.
