This New Moon may Haitians everywhere have peace, lasting peace in their homeland. May all suffering nations be freed into peace, their true state of being and may the abundance of the world fall into the grace of the Lord and shed its lasting miracle of sustainable peace into the world. Blessed be. And so it is. Amen.
The green man tree oracle says, “a good beginning leads to a good conclusion”. It reminds me of that saying, “first impressions are everything”. Make a good start and what you are undertaking will end well, it goes on to say. “Awen”, the moment of inspiration, paying attention to it, is a good place to start. Make the beginning of any new enterprise a clean and fresh one.
As the New Year is almost upon us, I’m thinking of endings and beginnings mixed with the tremendous amount of love and festivities around me. It’s a bit of a mixed state. Clearing the clutter to hear the guidance of new vision can be a daunting task this time of year. Yet, it’s an essential task to moving forward and making the fresh beginnings we so desperately yearn for.
An Ode to the Great Invocation
From the Consciousness of Jesus, His Light:
May His Way, become mine,
And his word fulfilled on Earth.
From the Heart of Mary, Her Love:
Let her warmth fill my heart and Earth-
May I honor all light and Love.
In the middle of all knowingness,
May a higher purpose bring Me
To way-showers: Saints and Masters.
From the center of our humanity
May our greatest destiny BE
And fulfill our purpose of heaven on Earth.

As All Saints Day and All Souls Day are upon us and as El Dia de Los Muertos rituals and prayers are being said, I think of my own departed loved ones and offer up this prayer:
To my Grandmothers: Nana and Grandma
To my Grandfathers: Poppy and Grandpa
I offer you my eternal love and gratitude
For your guidance and counsel in this life
And in the hereafter, I shall seek you, as I do now.
Thank you for your continued blessings and kindness.
Thank you for your life lessons of enduring love,
Hard work, gentle ways and wise warrior spirits.
I light a candle for you four today and send you
My love and my memories of your greatness.
May we always be connected in spirit and heart,
And may I see you again in the next life.
Blessings to you and peace to you- now and always.
