Another way to look at it!
February 29,2020 was a day out of time. Astrologically, you would have experienced it in two ways. Firstly, through your monkey mind where you were set & willed to live in your head, looping worries, desires, trying to solve issues and feeling overwhelmed by your thoughts! OR
Secondly, it was to be a day of peace, bliss, and love. A reminder of your protection and place in this great game of life.
My day fell into the second group. It involved grabbing a friend and going for a winter hike at point Pelee National Park . Willed in morning meditation to get outside spirit told me I would see an Eagle as a gift.
Wow I can’t believe the month went by so fast so I will keep this update short.
I’m still editing my seasonal nature poem book
I love the book cover that the graphic designer from Calgary created for me.

I have read 14/37 books so far since January.
On February 21,22,23 I attended an Edgar Cayce spiritual retreat in Niagara Falls Ontario. I have been interested in EC since my teenage years. I’m now 58. My mother introduced me to his books. She was interested in the natural healing remedies. I now have 5 of his books and will invest in more in the future.
This was the first event of it’s kind I have attended and my already high expectations were met with reciprocity. The retreat was well organized and had a balance between meals, social time, seminars, labyrinth, meditations, and healing ceremonies.
Some of the lectures I attended were:
– Accessing your intuition through dreams & symbolism.
– Angels, guides and the afterlife.
– Major earth changes.
– Your soul growth.
– Edgar Cayce on Shamanism
Thank you to organizers, staff & volunteers who made this happen. Thanks to Anthony Barr who led an early morning drum circle as the sun was coming up over the Niagara River! It was cold but well worth it! Another thanks to my new friends from Philadelphia. It’s amazing how common interests can create instant friendships! We will talk soon.

I am sitting here with my glass of Merlot in the CHEERS wineglass my son gave me for christmas. I can not believe that January is ending. Where did the time fly? For me this month has been busy filled with lots of Jacqueline things. I have finished two books of Poetry and I have the first one called “Lake Erie Calling” a book of seasonal nature poems, at my writing editor’s desk as we speak. I have a graphic artist from Calgary working on the book cover and I am excited as to what she comes up with. My second book which is called “Human Strong” is another poem book about becoming aware, awakened, aligned and actualized based on four truths. This book is also ready for publishing. Cheers I’ll drink to that!
This year I gave myself 37 books to read. I am at Goodreads if anyone wants to follow me. ( Jacqueline Denis) I have read 7 books so far this month. I know unbelievable! Cheers I’ll drink to that! It helped when I was sick for 2 weeks at the end of December, that gave me catch up time. At our book club this month we were challenged to read a book based on its cover. Thank you Tiffanie! because I just finished a book called “The Overstory” by Richard Powers. I saw this book at Chapters and loved the cover, it also helped that it won a Pulitzer Prize. If you love trees this is the book for you! I gave it a 5/5 As my book club girls will tell you I never do that, actually only once before.
Between writing and reading I met a new friend called Jennifer and had her over for coffee. Cheers! I’ll drink to that! I believe it is important to keep our hearts open for new people in our lives. I personally like to have friends, they nourish and complete me! I know so corny but that’s me.
In February (21,22,23,) I have planned to attend an Edgar Cacey Spiritual Retreat in Niagara Falls Ontario, Canada. I ‘m looking forward to that.
Lastly, Tomorrow I am heading up north to Sault St. Marie to look at a few homes and go winter hiking! We love the Canadian North and we plan to buy a home up there soon. The forests call me, the evergreens beg me and sasquatch needs a hug! I’ll drink to that!
We have been teetering on the edge of change for years now and we feel called, so you know what they say ” change is good donkey”! Hey is anyone joining me here!
What is your favourite work of Art?
For me it has always been “Gustav Klimt” and his famous painting called “The Kiss”
Gustav Klimt was an Austrian symbolist painter and a member of the Vienna Art Nouveau movement. He shocked Art critics with his unorthodox techniques and provocative themes.
“The Kiss” depicts two lovers teetering on the edge of a flower field or meadow. It was first presented in 1908 as unfinished.
What I love about this picture is the energy of love it depicts. They are on bended knee and the colours of their robes are as vibrant as their loving embrace. It was created as an outdoor memory as they adorned hand made crowns on their heads.
For me this picture portrays the moment one truly feels loved, accepted, respected, adorned,valued and free to be yourself!
Needless to say I bought the coffee mug!
A BLANKET OF PEACE
As we teeter on the edge of the Aquarian Age I felt compelled to reach out to my deck of Angel Vibrational Cards by Debbie Anderson. As I shuffled, I asked for direction with the ending of this years energy and the beginning of 2020’s new energy. At random a card flew out and landed on my desk.
“Hopeless Release” “The indication that something is hopeless, according to this decks guidance, is just in our perception. Every vibration that we encounter has a purpose, a reason for being, where it is in your life. At this time in your life you need to let go, releasing whatever feels discouraging or impossible to finish. Do not feel despair about what is happening to you. Everything happens for a reason”.
As we enter the year of Clear Vision 2020, we will be challenged by all the changes that need to occur. These changes will stir up stuff within us and around us. Deeper layers are brought forward for clearing, as light overtakes the darkness we have been surrounded by. We are not victims but quite the opposite. We are spiritual beings first – infinite beings maintaining a physical human form.
During 2020 we are called to accept the challenges and to respond in an encouraging and beneficial way. Some of us are called to meditate more, to activate higher vibrations, others to accept that changes do not have to be bloody or difficult. It is about freeing yourself from limitations and enslavement and you are doing so with the most perfect tool you have. Your heart! The more we envision change coming with ease, the more we will create a peaceful flow, even among the fear mongers.
Keep your eyes on the light within you and around you at all times. Be focused on what you love, who you love, and keeping your heart open for more love to flow through.
You will be transformed as you create a blanket of peace!
Yonder breaks a new and wonderful morning
You are divine, YOU ARE DIVINE! It is time my family and friends for you to realize who you truely are.
As we start this year refreshed, let us keep our hearts pure, practice self love and look forward to the new day dawning in the coming age. We are at a fork in the road of life right now and we must choose our paths. There is the unknown one forging ahead, fearless, in self fulfillment, spiritual awakening and love for all humanity. The other path leads to maintaining our surviving, settling, self serving and contains our limited belief patterns and negative thoughts.
Choose wisely my friends!
The signs have been present this year directing you towards patterns, synchronicities, and dreams that only you know about. These signs are directing you towards your souls purpose, your hearts desires! I hope you were able to recognize them. I believe many of you will awaken this year from the dream state we have all been in. Memories will be recalled, visions seen, dreams will come true. This is your higher self directing you to realign to your souls purpose.
Let us walk boldly this new year where no man or woman has gone before, teetering on the edge of the “What If’s” we have always thought about. What If you quit your job or retired? What If you tried that new relationship, or forgave that person? What If you let go of your judgements or jealousies? What If you helped a stranger, believed in yourself or let others help you? What If each of us actually did this?
My wish for all of you in the coming year, is whatever your highest desire is for yourself! Wholeness today and always, keep your hearts open to hope, for yonder breaks a new and wonderful morning.
Lest We Forget
Today I remember my father who was a WW2 Veteran. He enlisted in North Bay with the Algonquin Regiment at the age of 17 and served his country well. He was stationed in Belgian for a time and took part in the invasion at Juno Beach. He was hurt only a few months before the end of the war and returned to Canada after recovery.
He was greatly affected by the war and rarely spoke about it. He passed away in 2007 at the age of 88.
He was a calm positive influence in my life and I miss him greatly!
To all the Veterans today, I salute you! To all those who are enlisted in the Reserves, and in the Canadian Armed Forces you are appreciated for all you do!
