Follow the Karmic Path

Follow the Karmic Path-Click Picture To Read ArticleKarma, or the law of action, is part of the scope of the superior laws of The Universe. It is not punishment, as most believe, but awareness and expansion of consciousness that manifests in our lives through direct experience. Karma is a collection of lessons we came to learn in this lifetime. As a superior law, karma has 12 sub laws that may facilitate the understanding of such a complex concept. Enjoy this teaching.

Many blessings,

1 – The Great Law: We harvest what we plant. It is the aspect of cause and effect. Many religions acknowledge this aspect of Karma through the practice of the golden Rule. Do into others what you wish to be done unto you.

2 – Law of Creation: Life does not just happen – it requires our participation and interaction. We are intimately connected to The Universe both inside, and outside of ourselves. Everything that happens outside of you has an origin in your internal world. We must make happen inside, what we desire to manifest outside.

3 – Law of Humility: Whatever we refuse to accept will continue to exist in our reality. The world will always continue to reflect our internal realities, much like a mirror image of ourselves.

4 – The Law of Growth: Wherever we go, there we will be. To grow in Spirit we must be willing to change ourselves, not the people around us. When we change inside, the reality changes outside. The eye of the observer changes the reality of that which is observed.

5 – Law of Responsibility: Every time there is something wrong outside, there is something out of alignment inside of us. We need to take responsibility for the intensity of our feelings and the way we react, instead of just acting. Mastership of our actions and emotions can greatly improve our internal and external condition to live in peace.

6 – Law of Connection: Even when something comes to manifest in our world that seems to be disconnected with our reality, we must understand that everything in The Universe is connected. Each stage of life is directly connected with the next stage. Past, present and future are all one when we are expressing our internal world through correct action.

7 – Law of Focus: We can’t focus in two different realities at the same time. This is described in the Christian Bible where it says that a person cannot serve two masters. When our focus is to improve ourselves spiritually, we can’t cultivate habits, thoughts and feelings that are not in the same vibrational frequency of the intended level we are determined to reach.

8 – The Law of Giving: If we believe something is truthful and benevolent, we will be called to be examples of that truth. This is the equivalent of saying that a person must “walk their talk”. Teaching by example, and giving honest testimony of our truth is part of the scope of karmic patterns.

9 – The Law of Now: When we concentrate on past actions, constantly reevaluating facts and circumstances, we are impeded from looking into our present reality with clarity of purpose. Old systems of belief, old thought patterns, and old desires and dreams hamper new perspectives. You cannot expect to gather different results when you are continuously doing the same things. There is no future in the past!

10 – Law of Change: Impermanence is a valuable concept. Nothing stays the same. Nevertheless, history will repeat itself until a karmic lesson is learned. Reality will change in its conceptual form when we assimilate the teaching, and amplify our consciousness and understandings.

11 – Law of the Patient Reward: All rewards are the fruit of continual, constant work. Nothing manifests out of nothing in a material universe. Persistence, tolerance, and fortitude are vital when working toward the liberation of karma. Cultivating these qualities in ourselves is very important, indeed.

12 – Law of Meaning and Inspiration: The value of something in your life will be directly related to the amount of energy and intention applied to it. Each personal contribution to life is also a contribution to the collective. One loving inspiration not only adds meaning to individual existence, but also contributes to the ascension and inspiration of the whole. We are ONE.

Therefore, karma is as eternal as the Universal Self. The interrelation of everything always is. It never begins; it never ceases to be.

Jimi Hendrix died 44 years ago, September 18, 1970.

Jimi Hendrix died 44 years ago, September 18, 1970.

It blows my mind that it has been 44 years since I was a teenager and heard the news that Jimi Hendrix had died. It just seems like a couple of years ago. Time Keeps On Slipping Into the Future!

So much happened 44  years ago that affected my life forever. On September 18, 1970 Jimi Hendrix died. I had seen him perform live ten times and no one ever blew me away like he did. I was a straight kid and did not use drugs, yet I understood completely what his music was about. People often associate those who like Jimi Hendrix with drugs; you don’t need drugs to appreciate his art. I wish I could help you feel the experience of him live because literally I could feel my body vibrate and move in what ever direction he wanted it to when he played his guitar. Jimi is often considered the greatest guitarist in rock and roll. He is known for playing guitar left-handed and behind his back and with his teeth without missing a single note. It was an amazing experience and no one else ever was able to do that for me.

I lived in Los Angeles and I saw most of the major groups in the 1960’s and 1970’s. I am so grateful I lived through that amazing time. People have tried to capture that time period today, but unless you were there you will never really understand or experience it. I had just seen Jimi Hendrix about two months prior to his death. He came on stage much different than before. He did not have a smile as he usually did and just played his songs without much emotion. I felt that something was wrong in this man’s life, but had no idea what it was. Turns out the man was overworked and burnt out, but the promoters kept booking more and more performances for him.

The news of Jimi’s death came on a Friday and I spent the weekend feeling the loss of such a beautiful person and the greatest guitar player ever. It was hard to believe because he was so young, only 27 years old, and to be gone and to lose what could have been. He died from suffocation (in his own vomit) after taking too many sleeping pills. He was not a heavy drug user, of course he used drugs it was common for the time, but he was not a drug addict. I believe the man was just looking for some peace and quiet. I had my own private goodbye to Jimi that weekend.

For those of us who lived during this wonderful creative time we can never forget this genius artist that changed the world then quickly left. His influence is felt even to this day and will continue to be felt for centuries to come. What if he never would have truly lived and expressed what he felt? The world would have missed out on so much. Jimi Hendrix could not read or write music, but did that stop him from playing the guitar? No. Jimi Hendrix is listed as the number one guitar player in the world by the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

There are no limitations to your life when you truly live. Let his life be an inspiration to you to let go of all inhibitions and live your life freely and fully no matter what your age. We are supposed to live not just exist. Live today!

Life in this world is very short and as you get older you really realize how short it is. There are times where I would give anything to go back and live those happy carefree times again. This is why it is critical to try to live every day to its fullest and create happiness for your life. Life ends much too quickly and there is no reason on earth not to make the best of each day. Granted not every day is going to be wonderful, but you do have a choice in how you deal with each day. All I can say is live fully now.

Want to know what it was like to see Jimi Hendrix live? I have written an article about the first time I saw Jimi Hendrix in 1968. Click here to read about this moment in history.

“It’s funny the way most people love the dead. Once you are dead, you are made for life.” Jimi Hendrix

Thank you Jimi for all you gave us,

A Rose By Any Other Name

A Rose By Any Other Name-Click Picture For Article

I have always admired the Rose. Not only because the more you chop it down the greater and better it comes back, but, like a woman it gives beauty and pleasure but if handled badly will harm you. The scent of the Rose actually initiates the Pineal Gland which increases our capacity to communicate with our Higher Self or the God force.  This is where essential oils can be beneficial.  It is the emblem of Mary Magdalene and used by many different spiritual societies as their emblem. So picture yourself as the rose and no matter how many times you have been cut down-you are going to come back and be stronger.

Many blessings,

Remembering and Honoring Those Who Gave Their All on September 11, 2001

Remembering and Honoring Those Who Gave Their All on September 11, 2001-click picture for full article!

There’s no way you can forget when you heard about the attack on the World Trade Center September 11, 2001. It definitely was a moment that is frozen into our brains. So much has changed in the past thirteen years and many of those changes are based upon this moment.

Individuals were changed. The world was changed. And the country was changed.

Those that passed that day will never be forgotten and they will never forget us as well!

I lived very close to Los Angeles International Airport and what struck me as most eerie that day was the silence at the airport when all planes were grounded. The sound of silence was deafening! That was as close as I came to the attacks.

Remember all the innocent people that lost their lives that day. We know that their souls are at rest.

We honor all of the emergency responders who sacrificed their lives to help others. They died a noble death. “Show me a hero and I will write you a tragedy.”  F. Scott Fitzgerald

I know that many of you have stories you can share about what you experienced that day and please feel free to do so.

I am enclosing a story that I feel captures the spirituality that existed in those moments.

Love and prayers,
Cherokee Billie

MEET ME IN THE STAIRWELL

“You say you will never forget where you were when

you heard the news On September 11, 2001.

Neither will I.

I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room

with a man who called his wife to say ‘Good-Bye.’ I

held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the

peace to say, ‘Honey, I am not going to make it, but it

is OK..I am ready to go.’

I was with his wife when he called as she fed

breakfast to their children. I held her up as she

tried to understand his words and as she realized

he wasn’t coming home that night.

I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a

woman cried out to Me for help. ‘I have been

knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!’ I said.

‘Of course I will show you the way home – only

believe in Me now.’

I was at the base of the building with the Priest

ministering to the injured and devastated souls.

I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He

heard my voice and answered.

I was on all four of those planes, in every seat,

with every prayer. I was with the crew as they

were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the

believers there, comforting and assuring them that their

faith has saved them.

I was in Texas , Virginia , California , Michigan , Canada.

I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news.

Did you sense Me?

I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew

every name – though not all know Me. Some met Me

for the first time on the 86th floor.

Some sought Me with their last breath.

Some couldn’t hear Me calling to them through the

smoke and flames; ‘Come to Me… this way… take

my hand.’ Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me.

But, I was there.

I did not place you in the Tower that day. You

may not know why, but I do.. However, if you were

there in that explosive moment in time, would you have

reached for Me?

Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey

for you . But someday your journey will end. And I

will be there for you as well. Seek Me now while I may

be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are

‘ready to go.’

I will be in the stairwell of your final moments!

My love for You is Eternal!”
