June 25, 2013 marks four years since Michael Jackson passed into spirit. Michael Jackson brought so much joy to so many people and will always be remembered as one of the greatest entertainers ever. Rejoice in the fact that he was with us for 50 years. His spirit will always live on through his music, dance, writing, and inspiration. I know that you are dancing and singing with the angels! I have enclosed a special message that was written by a beautiful lady as a dedication to Michael. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie

Thank you Jacinta Feyling for allowing me to share your thoughts about Michael Jackson. Feel free to add your comments about Michael.
Last night, as the clock struck midnight, an angel made a very special gift for you, a gift that lies before you now. It is in a large box, wrapped in the color of moonlight on a shimmering lake, and tied up with a ribbon spun from those very moonbeams.
Slip off the ribbon. Open the box. Fold back the tissue paper and see within the most amazing cloak, made of love, pure angel love, and interwoven with the threads of happiness and dreams, your happiness and your dreams, woven just for you.
Some threads are made of the emotions you believe you will feel when your dreams come true. Some threads are the emotions you have felt before at the most wonderful moments of your life. Every joy, laugh, kiss and hug is here, every tender moment shared with others in the past and yet to come. Every moment of heartfelt pride in yourself or someone you love for doing something amazing. Every peaceful moment you meld and expand into oneness as you know yourself as a child of a benevolent universe, pure and innocent, blessed by love and guidance. It is all here, in this angel cloak made just for you.
And the most amazing thing of all about this angel cloak is that you can wear it right now. You can slip it on and embrace yourself with joy, love, and peace this very moment, no matter how things are in your life. There is no need to wait until something happens to feel all this; you can feel it right now. You can wrap yourself within it and let love expand your heart and rise to your face in a smile. Right now.
Put your angel cloak on every morning. Pull it tightly around you as you breathe in the joy of life. Feel how your worries just float away, all replaced by love, a deep love that flows for you, just as you are, in this moment. Hear the angels sing as you acknowledge their love and caring and relax into their embrace, trusting them to watch over you throughout the day.
Do this every day. Let yourself have the happiness you long for right now. Do this and the most amazing miracle of all will slowly begin to arise around you, so gradually that you may not even realize it until much of the year has passed. Do this, be this, be joy, peace and love, shine forth with it in every moment, and gradually the circumstances of your life will begin to shift and align themselves with the energy you are sending forth.
Oh, look, here’s a gift card from your angel: “The easiest way to achieve your dreams is to give yourself the gift of happiness right now.”
Isn’t that just wonderful?
Pets are our close companions because they provide love, comfort, safety, warmth, happiness, levity, wonder, laughter, and friendship. Pets teach us to have more patience with life and to enjoy the simple things.
I believe all the animals I have had in my life are truly spiritual beings, and it’s my opinion they have been put in my life for a reason: to help me be a better person in the here and now and to teach me things that will lead me to a joyous hereafter.
Here are some quotations about animals and please share your own thoughts about these wonderful marvelous creatures that share our lives.
A house is not a home without a pet.
Animals are such agreeable friends–they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.
– George Eliot
Love the animals: God has given them the rudiments of thought and joy untroubled.
– Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Who can believe that there is no soul behind those luminous eyes!
– Theophile Gautier
If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans.
– James Herriot
My most treasured possessions are not things; they are only things, my friends, family and animals are what counts.
– Olivia Newton-John
The difference between friends and pets is that friends we allow into our company, pets we allow into our solitude.
– Robert Brault
The best thing about animals is that they don’t talk much.
– Thornton Wilder
All of the animals except for man know that the principle business of life is to enjoy it.
– Samuel Butler
We are more powerful than we think. Our thoughts can control each day of our life. It is time to wake up and choose what you want each day of your life. If you want to be happy then start practicing happiness. Avoid negative energies from people, media, and any other forms. Watch comedies. Go outside and observe Mother Nature and the happiness of her creatures.
Joy can be found within when we let go of our expectations about our life. It is enough to just live. When you can find joy from the experience of living you cannot help but reflect this to the world.
Now more than ever we need to heal the world and we can do this through the power of our thoughts and practicing spreading joy and happiness!
A happy heart is like a medicine! Heal The World With Your Personal Medicine!
Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others, including Love. One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all constructed boats and left. Except for Love.
Love was the only one who stayed. Love wanted to hold out until the last possible moment.
When the island had almost sunk, Love decided to ask for help.
Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said,
“Richness, can you take me with you?”
Richness answered, “No, I can’t. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you.”
Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel. “Vanity, please help me!”
“I can’t help you, Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat,” Vanity answered.
Sadness was close by so Love asked, “Sadness, let me go with you.”
“Oh . . . Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!”
Happiness passed by Love, too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her.
Suddenly, there was a voice, “Come, Love, I will take you.” It was an elder. So blessed and overjoyed, Love even forgot to ask the elder where they were going. When they arrived at dry land, the elder went her own way. Realizing how much was owed the elder,
Love asked Knowledge, another elder, “Who Helped me?”
“It was Time,” Knowledge answered.
“Time?” asked Love. “But why did Time help me?”
Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, “Because only Time is capable of understanding how valuable Love is.”
Karma is the concept of “What goes around comes around.” In other words you reap what you sow; positive actions are going to return to you in a loving and positive way, whereas unloving actions can bite you in the behind. No matter what religious belief you have the law of karma is always present. It is part of our soul experience in this life. This helps you to grow spiritually in a positive way or if you choose the unloving path to have no growth and experience many negative things coming back at you.
Karma is very similar to an impulse. We can choose to act to or not act to on the impulse of the moment. This is why we have free will so that we can choose what we really want in our lives. We are not controlled like puppets by the Divine Spirit; we have the wonderful gift of free will. Being given this gift you need to think carefully as to how you use your free will. It’s amazing how one action can affect many people. One of the major problems people have is they are acting on impulse instead of pausing a few moments and thinking about the consequences.
One of my favorite songs written by John Lennon is called, “Instant Karma,” He writes, “Instant Karma’s gonna get you, Gonna knock you right on the head, You better get yourself together, Pretty soon you’re gonna be dead,
What in the world you thinking of, Laughing in the face of love, What on earth you tryin’ to do, It’s up to you, yeah you.” I feel that Mr. Lennon had the concept down beautifully and if you have not heard this song I recommend you listen to it several times.
As a psychic counselor people often ask why they keep falling in love with the same type of person. The reason is they haven’t learned the lesson and they are going to keep repeating their karmic actions until they wake up and realize it isn’t working. Sometimes karmic action is coming from past lives and we are in our current life to work out what we did not learn in the past life. What ever we do not learn in this life we may be faced with again in another life. It’s important to strive for self growth and be responsible for your actions in this life. This is what shapes your karma.
In physics, Sir Isaac Newton stated in his Third Law of Motion that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Push against a wall and the molecular material is pushing back with equal force. The more positive and loving you are, the more you going to receive it back, and the same for negative and unloving actions. It’s important to think before you act on anything.
If you can control your thought, word, and actions, you become the master and not the helpless victim of karma.
The purest way to live is to let go of our ego and start placing others ahead of ourselves. When that happens you reverse all negative karma from past lives and present and will find true contentment. Think of how peaceful contentment is. Let us live our lives in peace and we will never have to worry about our karmic actions ever again.
“Everybody comes from the same source. If you hate another human being, you’re hating part of yourself.” —Elvis Presley
