A Gratitude Experience

The Lesson

The GIFT — The LESSON: April 13, 2017

“Trust that through your experiences, whatever they may be, gratitude will bring a sublime understanding of our connection and of our strength — together.” – The Grace of Redefining Love

Here is the synchronicity of a post from two years ago. 2012-2015 was a shit load of loss! (a high paying job ended, three loved ones died in 6 months time, I had a cancer diagnosis).

This afternoon I had written a list of the things I’m grateful for, then when I opened Facebook this memory (below) is what popped up. Here is the list I wrote today of what I’m grateful: #Health #healing #GlobalConnection #Friendships #Yesrising #SomeoneToComeHomeTo #BookEndorsements #SunnyWarmApartment #Synchronicity #Expansion

Keep going — follow your heart!

Namaste  🙏 🙏 🙏 🙏 🙏


Richard Silvia was feeling thankful.

“Many of us are struggling. Like you, I too, am asking the same questions. How can I make it work? How can I best serve? How can I live my highest purpose? And so on. It feels confusing. Mind-boggling.

Today, I made the necessary choice to sell my Jeep. I’m OK with that, not happy about it, but at peace. I continue to remain open, because opportunity always emerges out of what can seem nonexistent. Infinite possibility, and jobs, careers, lovers, and friends meet us when we need them most – synchronicity is always at work.

I write this because everyone in similar situations needs to hear that that it’s OK to ask for help. It is OK to release our questions to God. We are not alone and we will see it through to new ground. We are moving and changing and going places we don’t quite see yet but our intuition will lead us there. Keep going – follow your heart. Namaste.”

No Fear Friday

Vulnerability — shows our courage to choose Love:

No Fear Friday is a weekly campaign advocating Love over fear. Follow Yesrising on Instagram, Face book, Twitter or Medium. #Namaste




“Losing a job, our health, or a loved one changes us forever. These are traumas that are game changers and we are never the same again. We see differently and there are times when it is wise to seek counsel. Asking for help is a Divine Experience. This is by no means a weak act — asking for help is the foundation of strength.”

Swimming Pools of Hope

THE GARDEN (Prague 1999)

I have never felt this strong
about a dream forging on
watch the shadows play
on the bridge walls
a giant multimedia show
today I can’t stop writing
driven by forces of nature
to record another chapter
bring light to dark—
the message
the universe is in part
trying to convey
I will not stop —
when the sky is black
is it not the same sky
the sun does warm—
we are the same infinities
of space and time
swirling circular images
floating in swimming pools of hope
this is where suffering ends
and life begins —
in the moment of absolute Love
between all molecules of life
you can turn this life around
shake it upside down
what a wonderful collage
it will be a garden filled
with everyones company
from HERO, a collections of poems 1990-2001



PEOPLE that make a difference


“If I can do it, you can do it.” That is one thing Lisa instilled in me the 36 plus year’s I was blessed to have her in my life.

With respect to her privacy, I’ll share what sums up those years for me in one word: COURAGE.

Lisa taught courage. She was the embodiment of it —and I miss that. I miss her courage among so many other things.

I learned through her ability to survive and then —to thrive in any situation, that we all could. I gained courage to stand up for myself. Courage to question what didn’t make sense to me. Courage to walk the path that has no markers or footprints.

Lisa exampled courage wholeheartedly —and then told us we could do it too.

She was the voice of reason, our sounding board, a guiding light, the rock-solid foundation of our gilded castle.

She still is.

Thank you Lisa! ‪#‎Gratitude‬ ‪#‎WakingInstants‬ ‪#‎PeopleThatMakeADifference‬
