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 #251 - Answers

Search not first for answers from others.
For all answers start within.
Available for the asking,
When you are ready to begin.

There are many ways your questions
May be answered once you ask.
To stay attuned for how they come-
This is your challenge and your task.

Who can say if others
Hold the truth for you?
It’s when the words speak to your heart
Then trust them you can do.

So yes, it may come from a voice,
Either human or pure spirit.
But having asked so clearly
Then you’ll be more prone to hear it.

Your answer may come from a book
On pages that are written.
Again, because you clearly asked
It’s as if you had been bitten.

“That’s it!” you’ll think –
“The words I need!
And now these words
I know to heed.”

So yes, the answers that you seek
May come from others, true.
But best when first asked from within
For guidance that is due.

So many fail to ask this way.
They drift without direction,
Wondering so hopelessly,
“What’s the answer to this question?”

It’s simple when you close your eyes
And ask the question of your Source.
The answers always come quite soon
In ways that makes you say, “Of course!”

So what is it that troubles you?
What stone does lie unturned?
Ask it now to God, within,
Where all great lessons they are learned.


  1. We must directly ask the "Source within" for guidance in our lives. When we do this, we find the answers come to us. It may be a sign like my robins, or it may be the "intuition" of the heart that provides the answers we seek. We are told today to trust the Spirit within ourselves. "Ask it now to God, within, where all great lessons they are learned."

    On to asking questions today and being more aware of the answers that come to us...

  2. This is such a good poem. The words speak to me strongly today as I seek answers to several things...

    I like the line,"What stone does lie unturned"?
    Sometimes the truth is revealed quickly and sometimes it's not. We can trust our intuition if all else fails and even though others should say what must be said to clear a situation up so often they don't. Is there an answer to this?

    All we can do is love, respect and take care of ourselves...
