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.

Poem #31 - There's a Reason for Pain

Oh little children, we do love you so
This please know
There comes a time in each person’s life
When they will face much stress and strife

But carry on through all the pain
In every heartache, there’s much to gain.
You think that life should be
Completely sweet and free … of hassle.
But look more closely,
Can’t you see?

It’s from the hard times that you grow
Like metal heated to a glow
It’s forged much stronger
Endures much longer
From the process…
The experience of being molded
Look back on how it’s unfolded – your life

Every step along the way
Brought you here today
Exactly as you are
You’ve all come so far
With valleys and hills
You’ve weathered the ills
And gloried in the victories
You all have your histories

And for this you’ve come here:
To grow faster
Reaching for life ever after
So that when you get there
You won’t forget there
How each and every stone turned over
Held a lesson.

Cherish all the moments good and bad
Ones that make you happy,
Ones that make you sad.
All are part of the whole picture of your life
They’re the fixtures
Bless them all
Great and small.

That is all.

We love you.

  1. Why is there suffering? It is a question we ponder often, and here is the beautiful answer from the spirit world.

    The image of the metal being forged is a strong and impressive one for sure. But my favorite lines from today are "Cherish all the moments good and bad..." and "We love you."

    Another message of hope and reassurance!
