Anastasia: A True Living Avatar

I barely have time to write these days let alone find the necessary time it takes to read a book cover to cover. But each time I have had that privilege it was because of a compelling urge within, and as it turns out, those books have each had a monumental impact on my life. What I know now... listen to those compelling impulses and messages from the Universe. There is a very good reason why they are being transmitted to you.

The book 'Anastasia' by Vladamir Megre (one in a series of eight) is no exception, three individuals insisting within weeks of each other that I must read this book. So when the opportunity arose last week to choose reading material for a cross-country flight to British Columbia, I chose Anastasia. And I am forever grateful and forever changed once again because of the written word.

I now understand why my friends were so insistent and also why they had so much trouble describing the book to me. Ironically, I really had no clue as to what the book was about, yet I was compelled to read it.

Before I got to the part where she reveals to Megre, a seemingly innocent bystander who became her scribe, that she had deposited something of a magical secret code into the book, and that any who would read it would experience and gain a shift in consciousness, I was without a doubt experiencing that shift.  I knew that something quite extraordinary, somewhat indescribable, but also familiar, was happening to me.  It was other-worldly, magical and fantastical. And I was so glad for it. I'm still wafting in that energy and don't ever wish to get off this holy cloud.

When I caught up with my son Michael at my mother's ocean-side home on mystical Bowen Island cocooned in heavy mist, crashing waves and ancient cedars (which have more meaning to me now then ever before), I read to him each night and we both realized something wonderful; there is an ancient esoteric story that I have known about for over twenty years; that there walks upon the earth, seven living individuals called ‘Avatars’. Each representing and possessing a special ‘Ray’ or gift.  We believe Anastasia is one of these true living Avatars, one who works in full communion with Nature and it's Laws. I have known of no others until now. 

Anastasia, her presence in my life and in humanities life today is timely. I personally was asking to go to the next level of awareness, something new to fill my cup as I have felt somewhat depleted after an intense year of activity. Though I do not know her personally, I felt transported into her presence, and doing so, I embodied what I know is the purity of Spirit in the human form, and a power that exists for us to work in direct communion with the elements of nature. She made me feel and she made me realize that I have much more to explore and reveal within myself and my surroundings, and that though I've touched on this purity of Spirit on occasion, and have a fine respect and relationship with Mother Nature, I have just barely made the first turn on my journey. I am so glad to have been given this new compass. I intend to follow her with open heart and open mind into the next seven books in the series, entitled 'The Ringing Cedars'.

I hope YOU are receiving this transmission...:o)


Me to We ~ It's a Matter of Perspective

If you have young, bored teenagers in your household and they haven't heard about the 'Me to We' movement founded by two young Canadians Marc and Craig Kielburger, I'd highly recommend that you sit down together and check out the website If your kids are inspired by this call to action directed towards young people, trust me, they'll never need to complain about being bored again.

Me to We was inspired over ten years ago according to Fred Kielburger, the boys father who I met this past September 30th when kindly invited by a visiting Grail guest to sit in the Kielburger family box at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. It was worth every minute of the five hour return trip. To hear and feel the energy of the collective roar of 20,000 teenagers shouting the cries of 'Freedom!' for every child around the world who suffers poverty, abuse, slavery or war, even now just gives me goosebumps. Opening with Deepak Chopra and followed by a continued line up of inspirational musicians, philanthropists and survivors of war and destruction delivering incredible stories of triumph over tribulation, made me walk away with certainty that there is an undeniable tidal wave of positive change happening around the world, even in the most darkest places.

The movement 'Me to We', is exactly that. It is a movement that takes us from the ideas of separation to that of union. From competition, to collaboration. It is a mind-set. I'll be honest, there was a day when I was of the separate, competitive mind-set and it was not a fun road to travel. Then exactly three years ago someone handed me a book called 'Me to We: Finding Meaning in a Material World'. And another light switch turned on at just the right time in my life.

From that day forward I consciously began to reach out to other entrepreneurs and actionists in the spirit of true collaboration and cooperation. And wow did life take off, climbing upwards and onwards into the stratosphere of open possibilities. Life just got fun, and better, and still gets better in every way both personally, spiritually and in business.  Perception IS everything. Moving from the 'me' to the 'we' perspective will reveal your true life destiny.

As I sat in what was the best seat in the house, no sooner had I arrived and introduced myself, I was immediately collaborating and talking possibilities with a most intriguing young doctor who started a medical clinic in the mountains of Tibet. As it happens, he is also a huge advocate of meditation and integrated medicine. Now how can it get any better than that? Stay tuned! And get yourself into the WE stratosphere!
