When I was eight, I became ill with a touch of TB. We lived in Ridgewood, New Jersey, but Mother had grown up in Warner, New Hampshire, where her mother and family still lived. I was shipped up to grandma’s to live for a year, which was the beginning of “saving my Soul” as well as my life.
During that precious time I learned so much. Grammie taught me integrity of the heart. There in the Mink Hills of New Hampshire, I received my first nurturing. I felt the touch of God’s love, the glory of the animals, nature, clean air and water, honesty, integrity, and most of all, self-responsibility.
I came to see that the mark of true wisdom is twofold: First, it encompasses every aspect of our being, body/mind/spirit. It touches our personal lives as well as our relationships with family, community, and the world. At the same time, this new lifestyle was so simple, with no need to run, hide, or fear. I was able to feel inwardly and thought, “Yes, I knew that!” “Of course, this is natural.” There was a sense of reawakening to an understanding that Grammie believed was inherited through her ancestor generations. When we are open and touched on this deeper level, truth is instantly translated from a thought into active, workable solutions to our upsets and problems.
Such were the lessons of truth that flowed from Grandmother’s wisdom, ceaselessly. Not as platitudes, but as practical expressions of the supreme wisdom that brings success, health, enduring happiness, and love of the Divine into all circumstances of life. She filled my mind with a universal harmony and taught me that I could meet any challenge to my wellbeing. Her motto was, just listen. Get quiet, open your heart and your ears, and listen. “The heart has its reasons, which Reason knows nothing of.”
Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined exactly what Grammie was preparing me for. Transformation, improvement of my family history, how to conquer any struggle between a variety of forces, as well as to locate my past-life talents and put them to use in this lifetime. To teach others how to enhance the understanding of who we are and release all that has constrained us in the past, from walking in Divine Love.
As our world civilization moves forward, the need for a means of achieving physical, mental, and spiritual harmony and balance is emerging as an absolute necessity. Today, those concepts and methods taught over the centuries are being adopted by scientists, religious leaders and experts in the physical and mental health fields that bring Light and vital insight to help guide everyone with the current ongoing and vital challenges. The human being is now entering the reality of Spiritual Connections with the Universe and whatever that can bring as we all ascend to a higher consciousness.
