Jimi Hendrix died 46 years ago, September 18, 1970

jimiIt blows my mind that it has been 46 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 46 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 a two part of video about the first time I saw Jimi Hendrix in 1968. Part One Click Here. Part Two Click Here.

My wonderful cat Isis absolutely loved Jimi Hendrix. Whenever I would play his music she would sit in front of the big speakers in the living room and listen intently. A reach the point all I had to say was, “Isis Hendrix’s on.” She would come running into the living room from wherever she had been and sit down by the speaker.

Remembering Princess Diana 19 Years Later

July 01, 1961 to August 31, 1997

July 01, 1961 to August 31, 1997

Wow, time goes so quickly and it just seems like yesterday I heard about the death of Princess Diana. It’s hard to believe it is almost twenty years since she passed.  Of course it was a big shock at the time because of her enormous popularity worldwide. Any magazine that put her on the cover, when she was alive, always sold more than normal. She was an icon during her life and after. Her legacy has continued and she is still loved deeply by many

Princess Diana Princess Diana will long be remembered for her kindness, gentleness, beauty, and humanitarianism. Let’s celebrate her life and what she gave to so many.

Here is an amazing and inspiring quote from a beautiful woman and an inspiration to so

many…..”Carry out random acts of kindness with no expectation of reward; safe in the knowledge that one day, someone might do the same for you.” – Princess Diana

This is so true. Whenever you do kindnesses expect nothing in return and that is how the blessings come in to your life.

In 2007, marking the tenth anniversary of her death, her sons, Princes William and Harry, honored their beloved mother with a special concert to be held on what would have been her 46th birthday. The proceeds of the event went to charities supported by Diana and her sons.

Continuing her charitable efforts is the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund. Established after her death, the fund provides grants to numerous organizations and supports initiatives to provide care to the sick in Africa, help refugees, and stop the use of land mines.

So here are a few facts on Princess Diana’s effect on the world.

  • Diana shook up the British monarchy and speeded its modernization.
  • She helped to tear down prejudices about AIDS.
  • She raised awareness of eating disorders.
  • She promoted opposition to land mines.

These are pretty hefty achievements for a woman of little education who mocked herself for being “thick as a plank.” Add to these a more dubious accomplishment — her skillful manipulation of media images — and it’s clear why, so many years after her death, Diana remains an inescapable presence in British life: mostly, but not always, benign; a restless and seductive ghost. It’s time to peer into the many corners she still haunts.

In her charitable work, Diana set a standard that’s hard to equal. She ignored the prevailing prejudices and fears about AIDS to clasp the hands of sufferers, and embraced leprosy patients in Indonesia. Arbiter remembers a visit to a home for the blind where Diana noticed that an old resident was crying: “She asked what was the matter” and he said, ‘I can’t see you.’ So she took his hand and put it on her face.

We can be thankful that her spirit graced this planet. Her beautiful spirit will always live on. She will always be the Queen of Hearts!

Many blessings,

Spiritual Cleansing For Sad or Troubled Houses

Spiritual Cleansing For Sad or Troubled Houses! Click picture for full article and information.
Have you experienced a great sadness? Have you moved into a house where a death or divorce occurred? Clear your house energy and start fresh now!

Houses are safety deposit boxes of accumulated emotion.

Fights, lovemaking, peace and sickness leave “finger prints” within the walls, carpeting, appliances and cupboards. The energy of each occupant leaves their signature “Essence” that spins in suspended animation until cleared out. Like music, certain people are tuned in to specific energy within a house. For example, anyone that has observed their neighborhood knows certain houses attract the same kind of people over and over. Oddly, some houses even seem to attract illness to the occupants within.

HOUSES ARE LIKE LOVERS. THEIR ENERGY CALLS SILENTLY

Just like the attraction to a person or animal, when we walk into a home we either feel comfortable or so overwhelmed we want to run. The walls that surround us whisper energy stories. We can “feel” them. Perhaps this is why a troubled house keeps on attracting cops or sickness. A party house consistently, much to our anger, keeps on being the noisy one on the block. Or there is the house that always attracts gardens, or artists. Like music, the vibrations of a house attract specific kinds of people.

HOW TO CLEAR ENERGY IN A SAD OR TROUBLED HOUSE

BELLS: {Walk from room to room, closet, and into corners, as you ring the bells crisply into the air. The pleasant sound and vibration of the bells wakes up and clears sad and troubled energy.

SMUDGE: White Sage can be purchased in leaf or bulk at health food stores as well as novelty shops. Place the leaves in a large shell, or bowl, light the leaf tips and walk from room to room, closets and corners lifting the bowl of sweet scented smoke into the air high and low. Make sure you open a window so negative energies can exit. Click Here For Detailed Instructions On Smudging.

CHIMES: Place chimes in your windows or where air from a furnace duct or ceiling fan can reach them. These pretty tones will bless your home.

Don’t forget prayer. Your Angels, Ancestors, and Guides always lead your path, bless your choices, and help you to manifest an essence of peace in your environment.

Many blessings,
Cherokee Billie

Free Yourself!

Few cross over the river
Few cross over the river.
Most are stranded on this side.
On the riverbank they run up and
down.

But the wise person, following the
way,
Crosses over, beyond the reach of
death.

Free from desire,
Free from possessions,
Free from the attachment and appetite,
Following the seven lights of
awakening,
And rejoicing greatly in his freedom,
In this world the wise person
Becomes them self a light,
Pure, shining, free.

Actions to Take To Heal Your Grief!

healing grief
It is often difficult to accept the loss of a loved one. Loss often causes grief. Here are some suggestions to help you overcome your grief.

Write a letter to a loved one, or any one you loved who has passed over. Let all of your emotions flow. You can do this as often as you like.

Light a candle for them for 7 consecutive days. Look back at some of the “deaths” in your life, how have they helped you to become the person you are today? Join a discussion or support group for death and dying.

Hold a releasing ceremony, symbolically burying or burning anything you no longer want or need in your own life.

Make up your own ritual for this and follow your own inner knowing or call upon your ancestors, the angels, and The Creator to help show you the way.
