My love knows no boundaries. It does not know time, space, distance, or dimension. It is eternal and indestructible.
Purple iris and yellow sedum
Perhaps you doubt this truth, perhaps you do not remember the serenity, the calm, the dropping away of obstacles worry and dread that come when you are tuned to the frequency of love.
My dears, you have known this frequency, this feeling before and you will know it again. It is the foundation of all that is. You have known it before, as an infant or child, or perhaps between lifetimes. It is an integral part of you and cannot be separated from you.
It is your birthright to remember and know and feel this love. Allow yourself to reach beyond the clutter of your mind to the ocean of love at the heart of all that is.
Know this, dearest ones, over eons your human awareness has shifted from the tiniest nuances in our physical world.
It has shifted from the subtle nuances and energy of the body, the energy that surrounds each of us and overlaps, the energy that creates the power and majesty of the night sky, the rhythms of the moon.
It has shifted from the spirit in all things, the earth as a living thing, our very mother. Your awareness has shifted from the earth as mother of all species, all living things, all stones, every atom of existence.
From these subtle and quiet points of awareness amazing wisdom, creations and discoveries have been brought into being.
Where does your awareness rest now, most often? The “news”? Those who would funnel ugliness and discontent and anger directly into your brains? Has your awareness shifted to include mostly financial concerns? Do you see life from this perspective only?
Has your awareness been devoured by the little shiny thing that sets the agenda for you? That little thing that chooses your news, headlines, the path of your thoughts and fears? The sound bites you remember? Then you misunderstand and miss out on the variety, the beauty, the magnificence, of all that life on planet earth has to offer you.

It is easy to shift your awareness back to the center of your being, the life blood, the soul satisfying actions that give you life. You must be willing to open your eyes and heart to the reality you desire.
How do you manage your circle of awareness? It is your most precious commodity. You get to choose the focus of your thoughts, what you allow into your consciousness. Choose and manage it wisely!
Know your gifts
Dear ones, each of you is endowed with amazing gifts, talents and sensitivities. Perhaps your family did not recognize your uniqueness, suppressed your power or did not understand your sensitivities and your true nature.
Hawk in bare tree
Your gifts and talents complement the talents and offerings of others. Together a world is created in which all can thrive! Not everyone can be an artist, not everyone can be a teacher, not everyone can be a mechanic… not everyone can be a magnificent cottonwood tree.
We are meant to depend on each other, from the lowliest blades of grass to the majestic oaks, to the creatures of the woods, to you, the two legged ones.
You are meant to be here living fully, plugging into source as your power supply. Your life task is to own and develop and share your unique gifts and to be fully yourself! So much creative power is at your command! Get comfortable with it!
All creatures on this earth belong to this great web of life. Without you and your gifts, the web cannot be as full and complete as it is meant to be. Without you, the web would be like a tapestry missing a primary color, a puzzle missing pieces, a house without a family.
Yes, I have said it before, and I repeat myself: You belong! You matter! You are needed!
There is an energetic network connecting all cottonwoods on this continent. Yes, we communicate in our way. News travels fast. Our news traveling through energetic vibrations.
When lightning strikes, when weather conditions shift, when seasons change, when the vibrations and frequencies of human activity and emotion affect our physical tree selves, all in our network know it and feel it.
Community of Cottonwoods
You may remark at the similarity between our ancient network and your invisible web, the internet.
What you call internet is a reflection of the invisible network of bonds that have existed between all members of a species, all humans, all cottonwoods, and if you tune in closely enough, all living creatures since before recorded time.
Everything connects to everything else.
These energetic bonds or cords enable psychic phenomena – A mother knowing when her child is in difficulty even though miles separate them; a sensitive person knowing and feeling the emotions of others; somehow being at the right place at the right time when you are needed.
Imagine in your mind’s eye, each person in your family, neighborhood, town, and state. Visualize them connected with golden threads to every other person. Imagine this for every plant, every tuft of grass, connected to all other living things with threads of energy and communication.
Those among you sensitive enough will know and feel the truth of this.
Try an experiment. Tune into one you’ve had problems with and send peaceful thoughts and friendly thoughts if you can. (Just like sending “web mail”) See if the feeling between you is different next time you meet. In a sense, nothing is secret because of your connecting cords
Remember, since all creatures are interconnected, your feeling and thoughts affect all others if they know it or not. Choose to feel the best you can. If you feel poorly, ask for help in clearing that so you can feel better, even a little bit. Each act of healing no matter how tiny how seemingly insignificant creates a more peaceful world.
You are a hub in a magnificent network! You matter! Your feeling and thoughts have incredible power!
What do you choose to radiate to your network?
This earth, our home, is turning. As it turns all living things in this beautiful place hang on for the ride! We are all creatures of this planet. Separate us from our home and we grow diseased, we grow homesick and die. We are meant for earth and she is meant for us. Our bodies and roots are attuned to the gravity, soil, energy, climate, stones and rhythms of our native place.
We are not space travelers who can discard one planet for the next and solve all problems in 1 hour of TV drama! This is our only option for a home! Please do those things that keep our home, the earth thriving and healthy.
Connect to her through your feet. Get to know her ways. Ask her for guidance. What does she need and want from us to thrive and renew herself? How can we feed her soil and nurture the continuing tradition of an abundant variety of life forms living in harmony and balance? Listen to her carefully and follow her advice.
Our earth is a magnificent hub in the great web of all existence. Our home is here. Let us take care of her.
Grandmother Cottonwood, evening sunlight
You, sweet ones, are surrounded , guided and supported by the web of all that is. Every point is connected to every other point. In this way the fabric of life is woven. I must reveal that this fabric of interconnected energy extends beyond what you can sense with your body into a realm beyond matter, beyond what you call life.
Everything is first spirit, non-material. Don’t bother to conduct experiments. You will not find this energy fabric with your senses, only with your heart. You must experience it there to know it.
All that is encompasses the beings of light and energy you call spirit. (There is so much more to existence than you are taught in school. You are now attending GCW university where the secrets they withheld from you in school are now revealed.)
The advice, guidance, and help of a non sentient being, or spirit helper, whatever form your mind invents for them, (ancestor, animal, angel…) is freely offered. They are the intermediaries for the wisdom of all that is to be transmitted to you and through you for the highest good. Only for good.
Contact your helpers by sincerely asking to communicate, dropping your ego and skepticism, expecting answers, and following the guidance you receive. It may be slight at first, as you fine tune your connection and your listening skills. Stay with it. Your life will blossom as the spring flowers blossom after a rain shower.
Open your heart and mind to the richness and love and compassion that lies beyond physical form.
Cottonwood seedpods and bark
My roots anchor me deeply to the earth. I am content to be here now, day after day, year after year, feeling the seasons shift, the sun’s warmth growing stronger as the earth turns toward spring. The winds and lightning, cleansing rains, the dear ones who share life with me here on this fringe of open meadow. I wake to my home, my circle of life.
After my long winter’s nap, I am gently opening to the birdsong and the frenetic activity of nest building and seed sprouting all around me. Groggy insects crawling out of their nests greet the warmth.
Vultures soar overhead against a backdrop of dramatic spring clouds. They’re back from their exotic winter home, come back to grace our air and land with their effortless easy sky dance as they catch the white sunlight on their magnificent wings.
I feel the millions of buds on my crown beginning to swell, the life force flowing into the tiny embryonic seed pods forming just as they have for millennia.
I am an integral element of this earth, I belong and so my dear, do you. We are all meant to be here. Your dear energy, your gifts and talents, your emotions, and thoughts are all part of this delightful tapestry that we call life.
Diminish yourself or any one of the creatures who make this earth home, and you diminish the whole, and yourself with it. Know yourself as a vital thread in the tapestry of life on our beautiful green earth.
