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 #219 - The Power of Your Thoughts

Sitting on the doorstep
Feeling lost and down,
With your chin upon your chest,
Your mouth a heavy frown.

You think you are alone in life
That no one knows your pain.
That others bask in sunshine
While on you falls only rain.

A shift in thoughts could shift your life.
It could happen in a blink.
If you would only listen in
To how you choose to think.

The things that drag you downward,
Are not those which happen to you.
It’s how you choose to see them.
You can let them pass right through you.

All life’s a choice; it’s up to you.
Do you see clouds or see the sun?
By changing just a thought or two
Like that – new life’s begun.

So get up off your haunches.
Take a brave new step ahead.
Face your fears and change your thoughts.
See not the world with dread.

There’s beauty all around you,
When the clouds inside you part.
Change only takes a moment.
Right now’s the time to start.


  1. "All life's a choice; it's up to you." Wise words again today from the world of spirit on how to experience more joy in our lives. We are told that it is not what happens to us, but rather how we choose to interpret the "happenings" that makes all the difference. And..., we are assured that "change only takes a moment."

    The first verse is very effective in portraying self pity with "chin upon your chest." I love that the image of dejection is again referred to in the next to the last verse with "So get up off your haunches" as we are urged to think more positively.

    May we live without fear today and see the beauty that surrounds us in our lives...

  2. What a beautiful poem.

    Thoughts are just as powerful as words. They affect our behavior, habits and ultimately our destiny.

    I like the line "do you see clouds or the sun?"
    Positive thoughts can shift our perception and the true meaning of happiness...
