A Legacy of Love

Posted by Editor on
A Legacy of Love


It is that time of year again…the season that brings joy with the lighting of the tree, the anticipation of Santa, drinking hot chocolate by the fire and for my girls and I, pulling out the box of treasured Christmas ornaments that my mom made us over the years. She has been gone for 2 years now and as we carefully unwrap each ornament she lovingly made we reflect on the memory it brings. It has become one of our most favorite events as we decorate the tree each year. The delicately painted reindeer adorned in silly hats with all our names on it makes us think of the endless rounds of tickling she engaged in just to bring more laughter into our lives. The shells with glitter bring memories of the many walks we shared on the beach collecting shells. The glass balls filled with ribbon represent her style and grace. And, then there are the ones she made while undergoing endless rounds of chemo which remind us of her bravery and courage as she fought cancer with such strength and determination. My girls are 9, 7 and 6 and even at their young age, they understand what a legacy means and they have such fond memories of their grandmother who is now their guardian angel.

This yearly occurrence enables her memory to stay alive as if she were sitting across the table from us engaged in a conversation listening to our every word. As we take time away from our busy lives and come together engaged in a Christmas tradition we are able to reflect on the beautiful memories she created and the selfless love she gave us all. I know many of you are missing a loved one also this holiday season and I hope this story will inspire you to find a tradition in which you can reflect on a legacy of someone not forgotten in your own life. Celebrate the many blessings this person brought to your life and reflect on the good times you shared. He or she would not want you to be sad and cultivating a ritual in their honor will fill your heart with love. May this holiday season bring you all a deep sense of peace and joy.

The Power of the Christ Consciousness on the Journey of Transformation

The Power of the Christ Consciousness on the Journey of Transformation

St Germain_pic

The Power of Transformation – Pathway to Enlightenment with Brigitte Boyea and St. Germain is a unique radio show series supervised, guided and directed by St. Germain, Master of Transformation, and channeled by Brigitte Boyea.

Many current world issues will be addressed. Other divine Masters and Angels as representatives of the Seven Sacred Rays will also be introduced throughout this series to offer their wisdom to the audience.

In this seventh episode of their radio show Brigitte and St. Germain will focus on the Power of the Christ Consciousness on the Journey of Transformation at a time where it is so needed to ease the wounds of humanity.

The Christ Consciousness is often depicted as a threefold flame; the flame of love, wisdom and power.

Having experienced representatives and activations of these three rays in previous episodes, St. Germain will now use the transforming powers of the violet flame to bring all of these aspects into one great whole within you. This will further awaken the “Christed Self” inside of your heart to be expressed out into a world that is in such need of love and support during these times of great change.

To complete this process you will be guided on a journey into the heart of the Cosmic Christ to receive an activation that will unify those three rays within you into the ray of universal love and oneness consciousness.

Much has been written about St. Germain, some of it true and some of it a human interpretation to conceptualize the unexplainable.  His intent for creating this radio show series is not only to assist you in the transformation of your own personal life, but also in the transformation of planet Earth through you as a channel and instrument of the Divine Hierarchy Of Light.

His main message is always one of love and empowerment to give you the courage to delve deep into your own inner Self to uncover the beauty of your true divine essence and radiance.
The Power of Transformation – Pathway to Enlightenment with Brigitte Boyea and St. Germain is broadcast live every Wednesday at 8 pm Eastern Time and 5 pm Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica 7th Wave Channel. Archives of this radio show series are available, too. Please go to www.voiceamerica.com under the 7th Wave Channel option and look us up for more information.

You can also visit Brigitte Boyea’s website at www.lightbridge101.com for more information on her and her services.

Mike Snyder will also add his beautiful channeled music to this radio show again to assist in the downloading and integration of the threefold flame of the Christ Consciousness that is being offered to everyone. For more information on his healing services, recorded music and events offered in the past, please visit his website at www.mikesnydercc.com.

What a powerful statement Deepak shares with us in his 21-Day Meditation Series. I am so grateful to be able to reflect on this with you. WE ARE ALL INTERCONNECTED. I have always pondered what that truly means and I believe it stems from the fact that we are all united by the goodness that lies within each of us, traits such as kindness towards others, compassion, love, and a need to be accepted. We cannot align with the true self and demonstrate peace, harmony and reconciliation unless we are able to go within and with a quiet heart, recognize the equality among us. We cannot view life with an “us vs. them” mentality. This will only segment us from others.

Today, I ask you to open your awareness to see how alike you are with others. Reach out to others with a smile, handshake or offer to assist to rejoice in humanity.

When turning inward, you can bring about peace by:

1. Quieting the inner turmoil. Take a few deep breaths and release all the self-limiting beliefs that enter your mind. Focus on the silence.

2. Seek to expand your awareness by looking for the solution within yourself and free of the dispute. This requires having faith in your true self and intuition to guide you to the solution. You create peace from within, from the silent core of your being. When you recognize this, you will free yourself from negativity.

“If Your Beliefs Are Limitless And Ever-Evolving Then Your Life Will Be Too.” – Oprah

“If Your Beliefs Are Limitless And Ever-Evolving Then Your Life Will Be Too.” – Oprah

Are you ready to learn something truly powerful? It only takes one moment of conscious awareness to shift the entire course of your life. I am living proof. My “Do It All, Do It Perfectly, and Never Let Them See You Sweat” mentality took me to a perfect storm situation in which I was deeply grateful to be able to make a conscious choice to change the way I lived my life. Over time, my life has evolved into a life of true abundance and it all started with awareness and a conscious choice. You can do it too.

According to Oprah, “Your personal power is not about what you do in your life, it is in how you live within.” I could not agree more. This belief changed everything for me.You hold the key to your natural gifts and unlimited potential to succeed; all you have to do to unlock the door is to believe in yourself.

Deepak reaffirms this by saying all we have to do to achieve personal power is align our core beliefs with our true self. You can do this. I believe in you fully! Let’s unlock that door together. A simple shift from self-criticism to self-acceptance can begin the transformation. What can you do today to show yourself you are worthy, loved, secure, and fulfilled? Just one simple act, start small. Journal about each of the core beliefs (I am worthy. I am loved. I am secure. I am fulfilled.) and how they are progressing. Simply observe without judgment and be kind to yourself. We are planting seeds right now and like a garden, we need to nourish it. Let expanded awareness take care of the rest. Realize this journey to activate your true self takes time and is not easy. I am here to support you in any way I can.

QDNA® Living with Intent, Love, Positive Passion™ and Purpose with author Mallika Chopra
and Marina Rose, QDNA®.

Oprah Winfrey stated, “The whole point of being alive is to evolve into the complete person you were intended to be.”

Life is meant to be lusciously lived, loved and appreciated. Life is meant to be simple. We are able to live like this when we’re able to get out of our own way.

We talk about living consciously and mindfully. A lot of us do live consciously and mindfully when it comes to others. How many of us really live consciously and mindfully regarding our own lives? Do you ever stop and ask yourself what is important in your life? Life can be so simple when we nurture ourselves and our truths. Part of this journey is taking a different action towards what we want in our life. Can life be that simple that we can ask for what we want with our intentions and we get them without exhausting ourselves? Mallika Chopra, author of ‘Living with Intent’ believes that to live a life that is meaningful, inspiring and fun we must first identify our intents, grow the seeds of our deepest longings then state them and pursue them. Explore intents, create the life you want to live and put the process in motion.


Mallika Chopra is a mom, media entrepreneur, public speaker and published author. Her most recent book, Living With Intent: My Somewhat Messy Journey to Purpose, Peace and Joy, was published in April 2015.

Mallika is the founder of Intent.com, a website and app focused on personal, social and global wellness. Her intent is to harness the power of social media to connect people from around the world to improve their own lives, their communities and the planet.

Her varied background includes launching the Heal The World Foundation in the 1990’s with Michael Jackson, being part of the initial team to re-launch MTV in India, and serving as a Health Ambassador for the Pepsi Refresh Everything Project in the US – an initiative that gave millions of dollars to individuals, non-profits and companies for projects in their communities. Mallika is also the founder of “The Chopra Well”, a premiere YouTube channel, she launched with her brother, Gotham Chopra, and father, Deepak Chopra.

The Importance of Empathy

The Importance of Empathy


Everyone deserves our empathy, even when, or more accurately, especially when they have harmed us. This is different from forgiveness. Empathy opens up the heart even wider because it is an aspect of love. It allows us to walk in another person’s shoes, to see and feel life from their perspective. It expands our humanity and enriches our life because we are able to give and receive more love. It allows us to heal the wounds that we have suffered at the hands of the wounded people who have been in our lives. As we let go of the pain, anger and negative emotions, we make more room for joy, happiness and love.

When “Hey Mommy” turns into “Good Morning!” An excerpt from Practical Enlightenment

When “Hey Mommy” turns into “Good Morning!” An excerpt from Practical Enlightenment


At 23, Val was thrilled to have gotten her first job after college, working for a PR firm in New York City. The job allowed her to utilize her schooling, communication skills and even her knowledge of the French language. But when she tried to imagine the types of challenges she would face in her new job, she never imagined that walking that last half block to the building where she worked would be the most daunting.

Val has lustrous deep brown hair, a compact and shapely figure and an elegant air about her. In the beginning, her job was typically fast-paced with a significant learning curve as she got to know the clients and juggled the tasks that were hers to manage – phones, emails, packages and deadlines. But as she slipped into the routine of a busy office, she was excited about the work and her newly minted career. All of this was about to change one sultry summer morning in an unexpected way.

Val bounded up the stairs of the PATH train that takes riders from New Jersey to their Manhattan jobs each day. When she exited the station at 23rd Street and 6th Avenue, it was already very warm outside; the concrete buildings all around her were still holding warmth from the previous day. There was the slightest rancid smell of garbage in the air but oddly enough, she liked it. It smelled like New York City in the summer – big and hot and bustling with people. Like a girl in love, she was thoroughly excited to be there and part of it all.

In a loose, easy stride, Val sauntered toward 28th Street, happy that she was wearing strappy little flats and that she didn’t need to wear stockings beneath her flirty skirt. As the sun peeked out from between the tall buildings, she took a deep breath and felt on top of the world. As she turned the corner leaving 6th Avenue behind her, 28th Street was alive and bustling. That particular block was the heart of the flower district and in the stores that lined the street were flowers of all types, year-round. One storefront specialized in dried arrangements while the next had orchids. Others had towering green leafy plants and still others had boxes of cut flowers such as roses or tropical Hawaiian blooms. No matter the weather, this block always looked and smelled fresh in the mornings. It was where flower shop owners and designers flocked to buy their fresh flowers, ribbons, baskets and all that went into floral designs.

When Val was about halfway between the corner and her building, she saw a man leaning on a doorframe, who began to give her a catcall. He made her skin crawl and her bright outlook on the day got dim. “Hey Mommy. Mmmm you’re looking gooooood,” he said, drawing out his words. “You look good enough to eat.”

Val hunched her shoulders and kept on moving. Just looking at him made her want to run home and take a shower. What a creep, she thought, as his long, low whistle of appreciation followed her up the street. With relief, she finally stepped into the vestibule of the building where she worked, glad that this small ordeal was over. Little did she know it had just begun.

For months, this man hassled her on her way to work whenever he was out front – which was often. She tried approaching her building on the opposite side of the street but he usually caught sight of her coming and his cat calls and whistles got louder to make up for the distance. Mornings became a tense time during which Val felt as if she had to run a gauntlet each day in order to get to work. While she still loved her job, these daily interactions dimmed her enthusiasm because she started her workday worried, not knowing which days it would be “safe” to walk down the street and which ones that man would make the short walk a living nightmare.

It was an early spring weekend when all of that changed, but she didn’t know it at the time. Val’s bosses invited her to attend a seminar that was being offered by Ariel and Shya Kane, who were their business coaches, about Money, Success and Happiness. It was called Wealth as a Lifestyle, which sounded good to her and they said it was about Instantaneous Transformation – whatever that meant.

That Friday before heading down to the workshop, Val stayed at work a bit later than usual. Feeling a little nervous about attending a self-help course with her bosses, she lingered in the bathroom, fussing with her hair and makeup. When she looked in the mirror, Val saw her own dark eyes gazing back looking all serious and subdued. She snorted and cracked a smile at herself. What might her bosses see, she reasoned, that was so terrible?

Later that evening when she arrived at the seminar, the Kanes greeted her warmly. Val felt herself relax a little but she wished she could go back uptown to her desk and bury herself in work because that would be easier than being with people as they arrived, most of whom were strangers to her. She had planned to sit unobtrusively in the back but another young woman, Christina, had invited Val to sit next to her, so she sat much closer to the front than she had envisioned.

At first Ariel and Shya introduced the idea of listening – truly listening to hear what another has to say from his or her perspective. They encouraged people to let go of their agendas and what had happened during the day and to use listening as a tool to get into the moment.

“When you get into the moment, your life will transform,” Shya promised.
Intrigued with the idea, she leaned forward slightly in her seat. There had been plenty of times during that day when she had worried about the future, mentally chewing on things she was afraid to start for fear of getting it all wrong. Maybe there was something to this listening thing.

Next came the Three Principles of Instantaneous Transformation. Val quickly lost track of who was saying what since the Kanes had this way of speaking in which one would start a sentence and the other would finish it. Neither one of them looked bothered by the other or seemed to feel like they were being interrupted. It was almost as if they were operating on the same wavelength or reading the same script, although it was obvious that their words were spontaneous and unscripted.

“The First Principle of Instantaneous Transformation is: Anything you resist persists and grows stronger and dominates your life,” they said. “Take a look at your own life and see if there is anything or anyone you’ve been resisting. Hasn’t that person or situation been something that you think about more and more?”

Boy, you could say that again! Val thought. Immediately her mind had flashed on her stalker – that creepy guy who just wouldn’t leave her alone. For a moment her mind wandered. She started to think about how grateful she was that she left her job each day after he was gone so that she only had to avoid him in the mornings. Of course there was the occasional lunch hour as well where she couldn’t easily walk in his direction.

Suddenly Val realized that the Kanes had continued speaking; the evening had moved on but she hadn’t been there for it. A blush of crimson spread across her face and she surreptitiously glanced at her bosses sitting down the row on her right to see if they had noticed. Nope. They were listening. She hastily started listening again herself as she realized that she hadn’t been “gone” for that long after all.

“The Second Principle of Instantaneous Transformation is this: No two things can occupy the same space at the same time. In other words no one but you can possibly be sitting in your chair in this particular moment.”

Shya then gave a fellow on the end of the row a challenge, “Be different than you are right now,” he said as he snapped his fingers. “Too late! Now has gone by!” The man grinned.

“How about now?” Shya said as he snapped his fingers, “Too late! Now has gone by. Your life shows up moment- by-moment and in that moment it can only be the way that it is because it is. If you see this, then there is no need for blame or shame or regret. Your life is unfolding perfectly right now.”

Val found herself a little confused by this. Sometimes some things didn’t feel perfect to her.

As if reading her mind Ariel continued, “If things don’t feel perfect to you, then chances are there is something that you’re resisting or complaining about, something you’re judging, saying ‘No’ to or you’re wishing it could be different. But we’ve already established that what you resist persists and grows stronger,” she added with a smile. “It’s a law of physics – for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. The more you resist something the more you keep it in place.”

“This brings us to the Third Principle of Instantaneous Transformation,” Shya segued. “This is the ‘awareness’ principle. The Third Principle is: Anything you see without judging it completes itself. In other words, anything you allow to be allows you to be…”
