About the Poetry

All of the poems in this blog are spirit-inspired. Every word came to me each day for a full year while in deep meditation. I simply wrote what I heard onto a pad of paper in my lap with eyes closed – meaningful, multi-stanza verses in mere minutes. I was unaware of each poem’s theme until I transcribed it later word for word. Each day brought new and wondrous discoveries about the world beyond our five physical senses, incredible wisdom, and messages of hope which I share with you in this blog. The last poems received are displayed below on this page, but the entire collection of 365+ poems are archived here in the left-hand column. You can search by topic or keyword using the search box in the upper left corner. May you find among them just the right message which speaks to your heart.

A Year of Poems

After a full year of receiving daily spirit poetry, I have heard very clearly from the spirit world that it is time for "a new phase." This phase, I sense, involves sharing and teaching the messages that have come through so clearly in the poetry, both through my writing and in workshops and presentations. The poetry is timeless, so I will keep the blog active. All 368 of the poems are archived in the left-hand column for you to browse through and find just the one that speaks to you when you need it (You can search by topic or keyword using the search box in the upper left corner). I send a heart overflowing with gratitude to those of you who have commented on the poetry and encouraged me so lovingly this past year. Please check my website from time to time for new essays and insights from the spirit world as well as for any upcoming events or news of interest.

Poem #365 - No Two Alike

Today I give a heart full of gratitude to the spirit world for poem #365 …

Differences—they stand out well.
All people aren’t the same.
And so you cast aspersions.
You find a label with a name.

“That person’s this; that one is that.
Look how they aren’t like me!”
And through these clouded lenses
The real one you fail to see.

Some may be poor, some may be rich.
Some may not have the schooling.
But placing labels on them
You do pronounce your ruling.

Thus blinded by your judgments
You close off your own heart.
And thus you never see
The other person’s greatest part.

For underneath the actions
And there beneath the talk,
You all share the self-same essence—
With Spirit you do walk.

Remove all of your labels.
Clean the dust off of your lens,
And love will be your great reward
Once thus your soul you cleanse.

Poem #366 - Rise Above the Ego

From Saunderstown, Rhode Island

Guidance comes
In answer to a prayer.
Where once was desperation,
Now hope is there …


Do not get mired
In the mud of your own fears.
For this leads you down a path
That can only end in tears.

Lift your thoughts and rise—
Rise above the ego’s grasp
That holds you down and suffocates,
Leaving you to gasp.

The ego holds no power.
On your weakness it relies.
When, in truth, this weakness
Is one of ego’s lies.

The Real You is strong and powerful.
Your power comes from your true Being
But blinded by the ego,
Your great power you’re not seeing.

Remove the mask that blinds you
And see with brand new sight.
That all you seek and all you are
Lies there within your Light.

Poem #367 - You Are Eternal

Insane ideas … insanity …
Thinking what you see is real.
When, in actuality,
You create by how you feel.

What you see can change
With just a change of view
And suddenly the world you see
Is not the world you knew.

Why all this false perception?
Why this talk about illusion?
Because you need to know these things
To clear up your confusion.

The world before you will not last.
It comes out of a void.
And what was dust to dust returns—
A fact you can’t avoid.

But you, my friend, are lasting—
That part that can’t be seen.
You live through many lifetimes
And in the timeless space between.

So place your focus there for now—
On that which does endure:
The Life Force that flows through you,
The part of you that is most pure.

By knowing you’re eternal
All else does lose its luster.
And when things here at times seem tough,
More courage can you muster.

Take heart that when you suffer
There is an end in sight,
For as eternal Spirit
You will always find the Light.

Poem #368 - Moods

There may be times you’re crabby,
Days you crawl into your shell.
Days you sneer at all you see,
When life’s a living Hell.

When days like this occur to you,
It’s best to just surrender.
And if with others you must deal,
Then do your best a smile to render.

While it’s true that you exist
As Spirit at your core,
Your body oft times has a way
Of closing Spirit’s door.

It may be due to chemistry
That causes an imbalance,
That so does knock you off your feet
It hides your loving talents.

You know the steps to find your soul.
You practice them quite often.
But there may come a time when
Naught you do your mood will soften.

Look then for something physical,
And there relief you’ll find.
But throughout all be patient
And to your Self be kind.

Poem #369 - Imagine ...

I was quite surprised to receive a poem this morning. I thought they had ended. Perhaps they won't come as regularly, but this one was very clear ...

Imagine … a world of peace.
Such release.
Forever is a long time to wait.
But this is not your fate.
You exist as All That Is.

Bask in these.
If you please.

Imagine a world filled with love.
A world where hawk kisses dove.
Where all are free to soar…
Wait not more.

Words of hate and fear.
Not what you hold dear.

Watch your reaction.
Does it bring you satisfaction?
Your goal is not to survive,
For you’re always alive …
But to thrive.

Imagine the bliss
That is yours for the making
When these steps you are taking.
Walking in the light from above
In the direction of love.
