“The strength in you will offer you the light, and guide your seeing so you do not dwell on idle shadows that the body’s eyes provide for self-deception. Strength and light unite in you, and where they meet, your Self stands ready to embrace you as It’s Own.” -A Course in Miracles
People have asked me how I managed to write -and actually complete- a novel that makes coherent sense while my two children were between the ages of 1 and 3 (the younger still nursing!)… The answer is: I’m not entirely sure! Of course I could say it was sheer determination that drove me to the finish line…
But honestly, when I look to the root of it, I felt like there was something deep inside me calling loudly and excitedly to get out. I just couldn’t ignore it. I believe that is the truth of what I REALLY am. That deep down vibrant voice and energy that drives me to do and be something much bigger than my eyes perceive in the mirror. Much bigger and grander than my brain can even fathom.
Recently I watched the movie Sphere. I had seen it many years ago but seeing it this time, after so much I’ve learned, it had a much more intense effect on me. I still jumped when Dustan Hoffman was attacked by a spiky toothed sea snake and cringed when (then little known) Queen Latifa was killed by ravenous jellyfish, but the final message was very clear to me this time: We have this incredible power to manifest ANYTHING we can imagine… why, for goodness sakes, do we imagine the worst, weakest, most horrible things?
There is something amazingly powerful within us all calling to us at every moment. Calling us to be the Glorious truth of what we are. Calling us to create and share the most magnificent realities we can imagine. A reality that even the best parts of Avetar would pale in comparison.
I don’t know about you… but I am doing my absolute best to listen to nothing else!!!
If we can listen only to our Higher selves, the Radiant truth of what we are that says “You are an amazing light!!” – Can you imagine what we can create?
…my mind can’t fully wrap around it yet but I know it’s GOOOOOOD! And I am SO excited to get there! “… just keep swimming, just keep swimming, Just keep… “ -Finding Nemo

“With a gentle ‘click’ the door closed behind him and her eyes suddenly opened, locking with his, burning into his soul. He was terrified to find he could not move a muscle, each limb feeling locked in place and weighing a ton. He felt a trickle of sweat move down his forehead between his eyes.
Avlyn was now fully aware of where she was and how she got there as she held the guard locked in her gaze. Not only was she aware, awake and alert, she now felt more strength and power than she’d ever felt in her life. Every cell in her being was buzzing with an energy she had never felt at this incredible frequency. She thought that if she were to look at herself the brilliant light pulsing from her core would be blinding.
She noticed the trickle of sweat on the guards brow and knew at once what he had been planning. She sat up on the edge of the table and tsked at the man as she stood before him.
“Did you really think you could handle me?” she said with a sarcastic smile as she focused on him intently for just a moment before he collapsed to the ground.
The thugs around the locked chamber all looked in amazement and were dumbfounded as they watched the sweat from the head guard lift off his limp body and congeal into a glistening ball in front of the now very conscious standing woman. She had been a limp quivering body for days! How could this have happened? They all looked around at each other with fear in their eyes for they somehow knew there was no escape for them.
Avlyn felt their fear weakening them as she looked around the larger chamber. “Hello boys.” she looked around the room, “You’ve all been very, very naughty.” she said with a seductive grin.
Some of the thugs were dumb enough to chuckle and nudge their buddy at this. Avlyn’s face went stone cold “So I think I’m really going to enjoy this” she said then closed her eyes and thought of the wonderful loving embrace of the incredible man who saved her. The man she didn’t know but she would give the rest of her life to. With this new strength pulsing though her she felt there was nothing she could not do.
“This is going to be easy” she thought,…”
