Birthday Blessings

Reflecting on my birthday on Sunday, December 1st, perhaps the most important choice I can make in response to my fifty-fifth birthday is to give thanks.  I give thanks that I had a wonderful day, and wonderful people with whom I could share my day.  I give thanks to everyone who has ever supported me in any way (often in many ways) so that I could still be here today, and that list of people is really long!  Thank you!

I meditated a long time this morning, hoping to re-attain the immense sense of bliss which I felt the previous Sunday.  I didn’t quite make it to that exceptional spiritual high (probably partly because I was aware of time pressures for making a deep-dish cheesecake to share with family and friends later, as well as seeing a client to whom I really wanted to be available for energy healing, even on my birthday).  However, I did settle quite contentedly into the affirmations:  Love, Peace, Bliss;  I AM this.  I AM.  (Repeat.)  One can also say:  Love, Peace, Wisdom, Bliss; I AM This.  I AM.  Nothing I know is better than feeling the energy of these divine aspects within oneself.  

I also feel content that, while my life and I have both been so imperfect in so many hurtful ways, I have accomplished some little bit of good, I have helped some people, in some small ways, and in small ways I have also made the world a better place.  I feel peace that I have done what I could to make this world better and to help others.  I am growing better, wiser, more loving and more successful as a human being.  At age 55, I commit to continuing to grow better, wiser, more loving and more successful for everyone’s sake.

I am grateful for this opportunity to be at peace with my life and my Self, and I thank the Sacred Universe for being the Source of all my blessings.  

May you enjoy the gift of life, as well as the gift of your Self. 

Love, Peace, Bliss,

About selfrealizationtherapy

I am a healer, life coach, author, and spiritual teacher. While I am ordained in the Christian tradition, I have also studied Eastern spiritual disciplines and practices, including Raja Yoga Meditation; Intuitive Coaching; Reiki; Falun Gong; and other forms of energy healing for both people and animals. I am available for distance healing and spiritual coaching via phone, Skype, WhatsApp, or Facetime; please email me at: to schedule a session. My goal is to assist you in connecting with your Higher Self to find fulfillment, peace, health, and happiness in life. I typically work with people for about six weeks, and then they either take classes with me and advance more, or simply go their happy way. While I cannot guarantee results, many clients find that in a few short weeks, more is accomplished than could be with years of traditional talk therapy. Born on the equator in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, I grew up moving back-and-forth between Africa and the United States my whole childhood and youth. We lived in three different countries in Africa, and three different states in the USA. I now live in Maryland, close to Washington, DC. I was widowed at the age of 28 when my 34-year-old husband died suddenly of a cerebral aneurysm that hemorrhaged, leaving me with an infant and a toddler. This crisis led me to believe that God loves us even when "bad" things happen, and also led me to pursue spirituality and become a minister. In 1996, thanks to "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramhansa Yogananda, and a meditation class called Raja Yoga, I started on an Eastern spiritual path, a journey which included becoming a healer and a mystic. On Thursday, May 27, 2010, I experienced what I call an Enlightenment Vision, in which I ascended and was blessed by Ascended Masters of many faiths: Master Lao Tzu, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Jesus Christ, Lord Buddha, Paramahansa Yogananda, High Priest Melchizedek, Lady Kwan Yin, Master Usui, and then by the Seven Archangels of the Seven Rays. After this vision, the teachings in Higher Consciousness began. Apparently, my crown chakra was opened, and direct contact with the Ascended Masters has been possible ever since. My message to everyone is: this is possible for you to achieve as well, although getting there is not necessarily quick or easy. With a Master of Divinity degree from Vanderbilt University Divinity School, a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Texas Health Center at Houston, and a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Texas Christian University, I perceive a unity in my readings in Eastern religions and in Biblical studies. As a result, I believe the original message of Jesus Christ was and is a call to Self-Realization, which may also be called following The Way (a term used in the book of Acts by very early "Christians," although they did not call themselves "Christians;" they called themselves Followers of the Way. The Way, or the Tao consists of the practice of peace and love in every moment, honoring the Divine Presence within ourselves as well as within others. The Way of early Christianity was a spiritual practice which similarly focused not on the material world, but on the practice of Divine Presence within the earthly realm. When we practice The Way, or The Tao, we become one with Divine Peace, Love, and even bliss. When we attain this, we experience the "Kingdom of God" or Reign of God, within ourselves, Nirvana or possibly Samadhi. Achieving this Way within each of ourselves is the only way we will be able to usher in the Reign of Divine presence among us all here on earth. The ultimate goal of The Way, and of Self-Realization, is the attainment of unity with the Divine Consciousness, or Buddha-Consciousness or Christ-Consciousness, within, and beyond our normal mortal mind. This Unity-Consciousness is eternal, but begins in the here and now. May it be so.
