Remembering Michael Jackson on his 58th birthday!

August 29, 1958-June 25, 2009

August 29, 1958-June 25, 2009

True legends never die and Michael Jackson will always be remembered as one of the greatest entertainers ever. I wanted to pause and remember Michael Jackson on the anniversary of his birth.

Michael’s style was unique and totally original. From the time he became famous as a child it was evident that there was something different about this young boy. As he grew and became an adult he proved what a remarkable artist he was with his dynamic album “Thriller.” His dancing was magical and there was no way you could not take your eyes off of him when he performed. He knew how to captivate an audience.

His charitable work was a constant love of his. When he was alive he gave to more charities then any other entertainer at that time. He had great empathy for those that were suffering in this world. He understood suffering as he did not always have an easy life growing up and being famous. They were both difficult and filled with hardships. People only saw the glitz and the glamour and not what went on behind the scenes.

No matter what he was going through Michael always did his best to show appreciation and love for his fans. He understood that they were the reason he was successful.

His passing at the age of 50 was a shock for so many, but I feel that the pressures he went through took a hard toll on his life. What he did was leave a great legacy of work in his music, dancing, poetry, writing, and humanitarian work.

I was privileged to be able to speak to his spirit after his passing and I learned a great deal about Michael Jackson that I never knew. I had not been a fan of his although I always knew he was a great entertainer. I prefer hard rock and roll and his type of music just did not appeal to me.

Channeling his spirit changed my life in more ways than one. I never would have thought of contacting his spirit, but I was asked by a radio station if I could contact him a few days after his passing. I was able to do it on radio and from there I continued channeling him until he had delivered the messages that he wanted his fans to hear and then it was time for him to move forward on his spiritual journey.

His Legacy

In the early 1980s, Michael became a dominant figure in popular music. The music videos for his songs, including those of “Beat It”, “Billie Jean”, and “Thriller”, were credited with breaking down racial barriers. With videos such as “Black or White” and “Scream”, he continued to innovate the medium throughout the 1990s, as well as forging a reputation as a touring solo artist. Through stage and video performances, Jackson popularized a number of complicated dance techniques, such as the robot and the moonwalk, to which he gave the name. His distinctive sound and style has influenced numerous hip hop, post-disco, contemporary R&B, pop, and rock artists.

Jackson’s 1982 album Thriller is the best-selling album of all time. His other albums, including Off the Wall (1979), Bad (1987), Dangerous (1991), and HIStory (1995), also rank among the world’s best-selling. Jackson is one of the few artists to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice. He was also inducted into the Dance Hall of Fame as the first and only dancer from pop and rock music. Some of his other achievements include multiple Guinness World Records; 13 Grammy Awards as well as the Grammy Legend Award and the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award; 26 American Music Awards, more than any other artist, including the “Artist of the Century” and “Artist of the 1980s”; 13 number-one singles in the United States in his solo career, more than any other male artist in the Hot 100 era; and the estimated sale of over 400 million records worldwide. Jackson has won hundreds of awards, making him the most-awarded recording artist in the history of popular music. In what would have been Jackson’s 52nd birthday on August 29, 2010, he became the most downloaded artist of all time in Nokia Music Store. Jackson became the first artist in history to have a top ten single in the Billboard Hot 100 in five different decades when “Love Never Felt So Good” reached number nine on May 21, 2014. Jackson traveled the world attending events honoring his humanitarianism and in 2000, the Guinness Book of Records recognized him for supporting 39 charities, more than any other artist or entertainer

All I can say is that coming from a place of not caring about Michael Jackson I have learned a lot about him and I truly admire him. I know that he is at peace and happy now.

Michael Jackson will never be forgotten!

Many blessings,

Remembering and honoring Michael Jackson Six Years after His Passing.

Getting close to his spirit helped me understand this gentle soul and what he went through during his lifetime. It’s easy for people to judge another, but until you walk or moonwalk in another’s shoes, you do not know what they have gone through. Michael was a beautiful soul who was greatly misunderstood. I know that he is happy and at peace in the spirit world.

Whenever I put my CD player on jukebox and the song ‘Billie Jean’ comes up I just consider it a little hello from Michael and it always makes me smile. His music was the gift he left the world and through it he will always communicate.

His music and performances will always live on. Many generations from now people still will be emulating his performances. His legacy will never die!

Remembering Jim Morrison’s 71th birthday December 08, 2014.

The Spirit of Jim Morrison

The Spirit of Jim Morrison

Wow, it’s hard to fathom Jim Morrison at 71 years of age.  There are some people that come in to this world who are not meant to be here for long periods of time and Jim Morrison was one of them.  He was an old soul and knew this at a young age when most children are still playing games.

Whatever Jim did he gave it 100 percent of himself.  He never compromised who he was for anyone, despite the enormous pressure on him once he became famous. He was a true free spirit, who lived his life the way that he wanted to.

Some of you may know the music of The Doors and not be aware of the many volumes of poetry that Jim Morrison wrote.  He really wanted to be a filmmaker and he was making a movie called HWY that never got completed. I am enclosing the video below so that you can see how unlimited his talent was.

Many people try to give an opinion of who or what Jim Morrison was in life, but I believe that he kept a lot of who he really was to himself.  He gave so much of himself as an artist that he had to have a little bit reserved for him.

There was far more to Jim Morrison then just being a rock superstar. Let me show you what I mean.

At a young age he was exposed to shamanism and throughout his life realized he was a spiritual teacher. To many he did not come across as such, but when you read his writings and study his life you realize this man saw spiritual truths and tried to convey them through his music, poetry, and performance.

According to Jim Morrison, one of the most important events of his life occurred when he was a child in 1949, during a family road trip in New Mexico, when he and his parents and grandmother came across the scene of an accident in the desert. Jim realized the Native Americans were bleeding to death and was afraid. He came to believe that the souls of the newly-dead Indians were running around, “freaked out,” and that one had leaped into him. This experience greatly influenced the content of his songs, poems, and interviews.

As Jim Morrison said of poetry:
“Real poetry doesn’t say anything, it just ticks off the possibilities… opens all doors you can walk through any one that suits you. If my poetry aims to achieve anything, it’s to deliver people from the limited ways in which they see and feel.”

Greatness was thrust upon him at an early age; he was a superstar by 22.  Despite this he never had the trappings of the newly rich.  He never owned a car or a house.  He lived in $10.00 a night motel rooms and only owned a few clothes and books. He lived a simplistic lifestyle, because it was enough being a superstar.  The other members of The Doors at this time all had homes and cars.

The pressures of being a rock star was overwhelming for Jim Morrison and ultimately he used excessive amounts of alcohol and drugs to kill the pain of not being the free spirit that he was before stardom. Sometimes we get trapped by our life and don’t know how to undo the web’s that surround us.

I am grateful that he graced this world for a moment, but he will always live on.

Some may say that he burnt out, but to burn out you first have to be on FIRE!

Sending you lots of love on the anniversary of your birthday Jim. Cherokee Billie

June 25, 2014 marks five years since the passing of Michael Jackson. True legends never die and Michael Jackson will always be remembered as one of the greatest entertainers ever.

One thing people want to always bring up is the bad things about people and to this day Michael Jackson is still attacked over things that he did not do. He went on trial in the year 2005 accused of sexually molesting a young boy. So many of his friends did not stand by him through this, but some true friends did. Macaulay Culkin and Corey Feldman were willing to testify on his behalf stating that they had spent the night with him many times when they were children and never did Michael Jackson touch them. That shows what true friends do.

The State of California is hard on child molesters and they were not able to find sufficient evidence of him doing anything malicious to children. To this day people want to call him a predator and they do not understand that he was nothing like that.

Whenever someone finds out that I channeled Michael Jackson the first thing they want to know is was he a child molester. The answer is NO.

People love to judge others when they have never walked in that person’s shoes. “Who are you to judge the life I live? I know I’m not perfect and I don’t live to be. But, before you start pointing fingers, make sure your hands are clean.” ~ Bob Marley

All I can say is that coming from a place of not caring about Michael Jackson I have learned a lot about him and I truly admire him. I know that he is at peace and happy now.

From Jacinta

Michael Jackson brought me to life, simply put. Back when I was depressed your piece “Will You Be There” kept me alive, and after you died I woke up.

You made me realize that I was valuable and could do good in this world, and you are with me in my journey to make the world a better place. Thank you for your beauty, your innocence, your talent, your strength, your courage, your wisdom, your music, your dancing, and above all: thank you for your love. You taught me the real power and value of art and music, how it can unite people. You taught me spirituality and love. You taught me the value and importance of forgiveness. You taught me the importance of seeing the divine in everything and everyone. You kick started my love for Mother Earth. I really do not know what else to say to you, except using the words of Jadagrace: “Your magic has inspired me to be the best that I can be”

In July 2012, you became literally a part of me. “Michael Jackson 1958 – Forever” is proudly visible on my left lower arm.Lene's tattoo

Thank you so much for everything, Sweet Angel. I love you more.

From Sheila

I would like to pay tribute to an icon; a wonderful entertainer; a humanitarian; and a lovely human being.

Michael you left the physical world June 25 2009, but the gifts you left behind will keep you in the hearts and minds of those who love you always.

You were an amazing performer – world famous, and now an immortal icon. However, I think many people (at times including yourself) forgot that you were a human being too. You had faults and flaws like the rest of us, but you certainly were not the monster or freak that some have tried to make you out to be.

People need just to listen to your songs and poems; and even the interviews you gave to see the man you really were and tried to be. They need just to look at the humanitarian work you did, to see the Love you gave. You gave as much Love as you could and that outweighed the faults you may have had – Love always does.

It is evident that you allowed life to take chunks of you, but who can blame you for that. In many ways you lived a privileged life, but you also endure cruel attacks on a world wide stage, while fighting your own personal demons. Looking at your life, it could seem like a tragedy of sorts. But the amount of Love so many people have for you, as well as what you left behind proves your life was an amazing triumph.

What remains now is your music; your poems; and your dance… but more beautifully, your spirit and your Love. Magic feet Of Michael Jackson

I Love you
Be Blessed

My Favorite Poem

The Road Not Taken By Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

This always moves me to tears. If you have a favorite poem please share it here. I would love to hear what others enjoy.

“When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the areas of man’s concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When poetry corrupts, poetry cleanse, for art establishes the basic human truths, which must serve as the touchstone of our judgment.” John F. Kennedy
