Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
To be a poet is to recognize that inspiration comes from each present moment that draws us into our creativity! Then it is our senses that overtake us as we try to show others what we see, feel, hear, taste and smell. But it is my sixth sense that brings them all together to unravel the mystery.

It’s all about energy, frequency and vibrations. Nikola Tesla already proved that. Can you feel it moving within you, within your life? Something changed in the world last night. For two hours I lay awake wondering what had happened. It felt like something clicked on against humanity. I wasn’t afraid, it just didn’t feel right. Not knowing what to do I did what I do best. I fight back. I reached into my tool bad of spiritual help and began to put on the full armor of God. Once applied I called on the name of Jesus to relinquish all that was not of my mission, my ascension, my journey. Immediately it was gone and I was able to fall back into a deep restful sleep. Has this ever happened to you? Have you been awakened in the night feeling like an energy change has occurred?
We all have different belief systems and life experiences but I am guessing you do have someone on your speed dial for spiritual help. We are all warriors fighting the good fight. We all stand together between a spiritual battle in the heavenly realms by powers, principalities, and forces that are unknown to us. Does the fact we cannot see them make them any less real? Like spirit we can see them moving through others who bend to their manipulations and cave into the control. Humans acting unjustly, unlovingly, unfair and unkind. Forces that entice separatism, racism, power over others and greed. Slowly killing each other for whose sake? Humanity is caught in a battle struggling to survive. Some of us feeling defeated giving in and others of us standing up in resistance. “You are not alone; we will not be defeated!”
I believe my spirit last night was telling me to arise to grab my spiritual bag of tools and lock n load for humanity. I was also being told to wake up my brothers and sisters along the way because it is time. It is time to work synergetically to create more mastery within ourselves so that we can fight for what is right & true. We do not have all the answers but we have each other. If we seek that which binds us together in unity, we will be able to have an impact on humanity. Afterall we are all teachers, healers and guides. Our mission is to reach as many as possible to awaken from the dream.
The question we need to address is “What unites us?” Is it our humanity that unites us because we have not done a great job taking care of each other? Is it our planet? Well, the same can be said for that! Is it our sense of community and wanting a better world for our families and friends? Still others ask is it our divinity, our DNA, our ability to react emotionally during crisis? I believe once we truly understand who we are, how we were made, and what we are capable of, then and only then, we will move forward as a species. Understanding our divinity is the psycho-spiritual connection to our consciousness that is needed to awaken the god within. Every religion believes humanity is connected to a creator God and we are called children of God, light sources and other names. What happens when the children grow up?What you believe directly affects your life! Your thoughts directly affect your actions. Self-actualization happens when you disconnect the EGO which is centered on selfishness, greed and power and connect to the world around you in service to something other than yourself. It is our ability to love the EGO into submission that Christ gave us an example of. My advice is to get connected to a group, organization or service that you feel passionate about. If you’re an artist get connected to that modality and share it with the world. Don’t just sit there and tell everyone what you think they should do, get out there and Do Something too!
How is it then we can be better teachers, healers and guides? It is by showing love, kindness, sympathy and compassion to all those we meet each day. Every person you meet is your mission! We are being called to go within ourselves, getting rid of all that does not serve us and re-establishing a new self, based on service.
Going within starts with what you have hanging in your spiritual closet. Any bitterness, resentment, unforgiveness hanging around? It is only to our advantage to forgive those close to us as well as those we only hear about. Whether it is a hurt feeling or a crime against humanity it starts with forgiveness and then moves forward to establish a system of fair communication and transparency.
By working in collaboration, we can accomplish miracles, move mountains and do whatever we set our minds to. Faith is the glue. Faith in ourselves as creator beings, faith in each other as divine souls and faith in the creator who wants only the best for his/her creation.
Rumi talks about the 3 levels of awakening
- Visualize yourself as a drop going into the ocean, because you are divine and a part of everything around you
- Then once within you are now a part of the ocean, you are now expressing through form
- Now visualize the entire ocean as it enters into your drop, you are in the spirit of oneness
There comes a moment when we need to redefine our lives. A time to ask the most daunting of questions, “What is working for us and what is not working anymore?” Whether it be people, places or jobs, we can find ourselves regrouping and configuring a better way to be happier, healthier, or figuring out what it “IS” we really want in life.
I find I have come to this moment and it pushes me towards change. It is time for me to leave my childhood city, a place my father brought us to when he was transferred here in 1969. A flat land that harbours hard working people. A community of giving souls ready to reach up and outward in times of trouble. It is time for me to leave the many souls I met along my journey through school, work and the ones who taught me life lessons in love, jealousy and abandonment. I also leave behind family, friends and neighbours that sparked my creative mind that now begs me to move forward.
I am heading North. My fathers North, called by my ancestors who are guiding me back to nature and a more simpler way of life. We have bought property on an in-land lake with a waterfall right across from us. A beautiful piece of property that is the personification of the Canadian Shield. As I learn to be fearless and surrender to the future, I release all, in the hopes that the light I carry will remain in the hearts I will miss. I cover them in source love and peace. I only ask you let me go, so your heart will not be tight with sadness or grief. Loss is a human trauma that needs freedom to flow and languish into neutrality. Let me create the life my soul calls forth and take this time to reflect what is, or is not working in your life.
May my courage and sense of adventure spark the same within you!
In wholeness, love and gratitude, Jacqueline

April 21, 2021
The skyline changes as clouds navigate through the solemn sky, predicting change is coming soon. I sit in a space divinely created by the convergence of three tall barky pillars. Three trunks rise out of the earth, like a hand held towards the heavens, in praise and worship. Filling my lungs with the forest air I smell the musty mildew. Leaves that lost flight a season ago lay dormant, decaying but life giving to insects. Seeds that have also fallen lay beneath the ground, wrapped in a an earthly blanket germinating, preparing to sprout. Birdsong blows away on the wind as I contemplate this new year and how I will commandeer through it. Something else wings down to the nearest branch singing and lifts my heart in gratitude. I feel messages all around me, some confirming, lifting, separating and others grounding, directing and releasing me. I am aware of the soil gripping the roots of the three ladies I sit upon and I wonder about the silent connection between human and nature. There is so much we do not see. The roots connecting all the species sending out synapses through the fungal forest in a network the size of the planet. Oh yes our planet! Our nest in constant need of rebuilding.
“They say: The air is a mix we must keep making. There’s as much belowground as above. There are seeds that need fire. Seeds that need freezing. Seeds that need to be smashed open before they will germinate. A thing can travel anywhere just by holding still” Richard Powers
This quote reminds me that second growth will rush back in, testing the strength of each pod and that the web of the forest will swell in design, colour and purpose, just like my life. Each day is a new dawn directing me to be all I can be. I am now reminded of Buddha’s words. “Be still and feel”

To all the living things
On our planet wide
That soar majestic wings
Or move with evening tide
That have a right to be
Sustaining on earth’s crust
Evolving from the sea
One day to lie in dust
You have a right to be
When will we learn our role?
Destroying all we see
Will greatly take its toll
I believe we were chosen
Caretakers of this earth
This question that I pose
Which skill is needed so?
We understand and work
Together with our foe
To sympathize not irk
Who is to teach this skill?
To all the living beings
I thought it was the will
Of nations honest kings?
Does only man have worth
Who lives and conquers all?
Caretakers of this earth
Accept this destined call!
April is National Poetry Month and I honour their theme of Resilience
Humans falling can fly buoyantly through the chaos
dark spaces expand casting a landing pad
we are flexible as rubber
springing back into form once the trauma has been felt
confused that we are still here
Our thoughts master patience as angels descend to pick up the pieces
our mind, body, and souls connect to the truth
memories are submerged into the ocean of forgetfulness
licking our salty wounds
A day emerges and we feel joy
light slowly flows into our hearts
as we wander weightless around the earth
Today I spent my Birthday hiking out in the great Kennedy Woods forest. How awesome to be among the ancient trees, frolicking birds and singing crickets. Spring is in the air and I feel alive. Each day I have promised myself this year, to do one thing that makes me happy and 3 months later I feel alive, happy, centred, and grounded! It’s a choice to take a step, a choice to let go and a choice to loving yourself better! Join me and take this challenge too. Live life choosing what makes you happy!
