“It is good to have an end to journey towards; But it is the journey that matters, in the end.”
On this day, May 20, 1961 my parents, John V. Marchell and Connie A. Mitchell were married. It was a bittersweet wedding for my mom’s father, G. Clifford Mitchell, had passed from a heart attack less than a month prior to their wedding date. Their love for me is crystal clear as I was the honeymoon baby. Dad would often say to me that I was a ‘much loved child.’
I do believe that Grandpa Cliff’s Spirit has been with me always, as he was a graphic artist who, at an early age, was asked to work for Walt Disney. He declined the offer and went into business for himself with many of his creative works promoting IBM in their beginning stages with their first place of operation located in Endicott, New York.
So on this day, I honor my parents unconditional love and everlasting guidance still evident miraculously in my life as love transcends our human understanding. It is through building a firm foundation by focusing on the gift of union which makes the relationship stronger and resilient to withstand any storm. With the extraordinary gift of a once in a lifetime love, one hundred percent belief, trust and faith in one another with open heart awareness; together the two open their arms wide to embrace the unknown.
As their hearts joined together pictured in the glowing setting sunset clouds, I know that their gift of new beginnings is approaching for me as their message permeates my soul.
“It’s time to unite your hearts, for together your energies combined are magnetic, magical and infinite in their abilities to manifest miracles.”
Mom and Dad
“One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore.”
“We step into nature, Our hearts open wide, We see all before us, Of all that’s inside.
Above and below us, Reflected around, In treetops and water, God’s love is abound.”

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for Good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
“When perfect balance is achieved, all pathways are full of joyous adventure that make one’s heart sing!”

“If by chance you caught a glimpse; Of dancing lights and fragrant sights; Might you glance upon the trees; Speaking ever softly in the autumn breeze.”

“Sing of colors bright and exhilarating sites; Of expansive moments saturated with a heavenly lights.”
“For it is the parent which nurtures the child; Such is the womb of Gaia showering Her Everlasting Love. Be ever in a state of gratitude for Her great gift to us; For through Her, God Speaks ever softly to our hearts.”
“May your heart be always full of joy; Embracing the precious gift of Life!”
“For in the woods I wander for solace, insight and understanding; As the dwellings of wildlife convey, our true home is where our heart is.”

“Care no more for the opinion of others, for their voices. Do the hardest thing for you. Act for yourself and face your Truth.”

As some of you know, I survived a car accident, which gifted me the opportunity to a glimpse of crossing over (NDE) while I was in a coma. It’s the chances that you don’t take which make one complacent, as home is blissful, surreal, saturation of rapturous, joyous, unconditional Love. Promise yourself to stretch your comfort zone every day, this could be your only today, so make it the most meaningful experience of your life!
“Throughout our lives, laughter and playfulness heal our mind, body and soul.”

“The hush of heaven holds our hearts today.”

“Teamwork and foundations are built on integrity of the heart.”
“Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.”
Max Ehrmann, Desiderata
“For it is knowledge which teaches wisdom, wisdom which teaches truth and the truth will set you free.”
“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths.”
Just as the sky reflections are mirrored in the water, our perception of knowing is being reflected back to us in order to question our integrity. As no two sunsets are the same, we are being asked to move beyond our familiar ways of thinking on the linear plane and move into a multi-dimensional existence. In order to take these new quantum leaps of faith, our familiar way of doing things is being asked to transform every day. This means that how we may do something one day will not be the same as the next. As our whole world is changing and evolving so rapidly, so will our response one day will be different from the next. This is not to be termed as being inconsistent. However, it is learning how to soar from one experience to the next as life is no longer linear in living, thinking and actions; we are now living in a circular multi-level existence, where timelines are occurring simultaneously.
“God will supply all of your needs according to his riches in glory.”
Like the various hues and reflections in the evening sky at Highland Lake, the peace of God washes over your soul. Timelessness is evident in the ever-changing weather patterns, color configurations within the sky, smoothness to waves of the lake and season changes from the trees. Time stands still in enormous pockets of peaceful awareness as the vibration and energy present speaks volumes to the depths of ones body, mind and soul. Feeling connected to the magical wonder of the lake, she speaks ever so softly to a place deep within about inner tranquility only apparent when one quiets the mind and listens with the heart.
“Whoever knocks persistently, ends by entering.”
And so I speak about the miraculous beauty surrounding us and ask that these precious moments we are so blessed to experience be treasured in our hearts now and always. For by asking you receive and by receiving you may find and by knocking the door will be opened up to you, when it is time. Timing, that is, and patience are the final factors necessary in creating miracles. You must be still and they will appear everywhere! And so it is.
“Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it.”
There is a favorite saying from the Law of Attraction which states “No amount of action can compensate for misaligned energy.” Potent statement which reveals the vital importance of inner clearing, aligning, strengthening and empowering to connect with all that is, our purest relationship with God, Source, Love, Light, Peace, Joy to embody the music of our heart. This moment captured in time conveys the rainbow loving energy of God’s Love embracing, surrounding and flowing from within, the softness of angelic whispers blowing through Dad’s Crimson Kind Maple, the fragrance of roses, the taste of fresh, crisp enlivening air, the harmonics of birds singing and the inner knowing of an incredible monumental moment where the saturation of joyousness shown through to remind us of how loved we are. This was my first experience of transcending the linear to embody the infinite. I even had an orb caught on my face! This digital age has allowed for things which were not seen but felt to now being revealed.
If faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not yet seen (Hebrews 1:11), why are we “seeing” and “hearing” amazing colors, bell-tones and applying quantum leaps of faith now more than ever? Sometimes we just have to have faith, trust and patience in the process of our new journey to living in peace, where the lion lies down with the lamb. It is time. Grandma Marge would say in Slovak “uj moy dost” or “uj je ches.” Sometimes, we just have to believe.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord…”plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11.
I so love when there are visual confirmations to share with others about the intense love being radiated to us from the spiritual realms! Notice the seven red hearts floating over the trees together with the prism of rainbow light flowing in both directions from the white sun. The energy and color of the sun has amplified to white crystalline light as we continue to resonate at a higher awareness. Finally, notice the blurry white in the center of the light post between the trees which extends out to a red pathway on the grass. Exciting to share these glimpses of the intense love and light that is our gift – it is who we are!
A few weeks later, the hearts appeared again in my backyard on the Crimson King Maple that I had planted in my Father’s memory – interesting that there are two red hearts this time – Mom and Dad. My cat, Jaco, seems to have a gold orb on his cheek and above his head is a light pink orb, which is Grandma’s color of choice! So, even though these are simple visual confirmations to me personally, I feel compelled to share them as Spirit is calling us to be aware of the love all around us, enveloping us, within us, surrounding us and speaking to us in rainbow frequencies and light codes as we continue to become clear and open to all.
