Dear Friends,
   As we enter a new year, we can reflect on the last year. What did you discover about yourself? About humanity?
     This horrible pandemic will pass. Viruses have existed for eons and will continue to exist.
        One day, however this virus will just be a part of all that is vibrating in the universe.
           We can always count on humankind to be humankind with our pettiness, divisiveness and the “need to be right” and make others wrong even if the cost is disease, war or even death.
              Yet humankind also has its higher vibration,,,where we do join together. We are NOT our opinions or our points of view,
                  We have our opinions and points of view. This is how we are wired as humans.
                     The more we focus on our point of view being right and others being wrong, we feed division, hatred and eventually violence.
                         Yet if we come together with our common ground as human beings, we can find greater harmony.
                             We all want warmth and comfort, to feel safe, to be healthy and to have love in our life.
                                 Throughout history, there have been many who have disagreed with each other over politics or religion yet remained friends…deep friends.
                                       Are you willing to take that step? Not denying your point of view but acknowledging it as a point of view and that others have their point of view.
                                             If we truly wish to contribute greater peace to the survival of this magnificent planet, our higher consciousness    and civil behavior towards each other might be the perfect place to start.
                                                    I Love you,

Richard’s Message for 2021



Dear Friends,


Life is full of constant change, isn’t it?
One cycle after another.
Each of us has our own inner and outer cycles.


Collectively, for humanity there are also cycles. This is what is occurring now.


Do not despair my friends.


In order for humanity to evolve and raise its consciousness, the existing rigid structures  of the old patriarchy based on  control, exclusion, suppression, favored status for the few and suppression of the divine feminine must crumble and is crumbling.


There is a part of humanity that wants to cling to what was. The more we tightly hold on to the old, the more we will suffer.


If we are to survive as a species, we must come together as one humanity filled with billions of unique self expressions.


The COVID virus compels us to ask:
             Who am I?
             What are my priorities? Who do I love? What do I love?
             How can I make a contribution?


And to consider: Can I allow myself to be reborn in my body as an unlimited being filled with possibilities in the now?


Using this sacred time to shed attachments to our old paradigms, we can become the phoenix rising from the ashes.


A new awareness based on respect, cooperation, inclusion and compassion is emerging. Some identify this as the beginning of the age of Aquarius.


We are all co creators here. What kind of world would you like to create?


I love you. Thank you


        “Someday after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire”


Richard’s Message for 2020:

  During challenging times, it is so tempting to be negative and fearful. Yet the more we drive our thoughts in that direction, the more we descend into a landscape of despair.

  Life is full of vibrations like those that come from a musical instrument. We can choose where we would like to resonate.Just by choosing to live in a higher resonance,a portal opens for our well-being.

  There are four such portals that can support us in living in a higher resonance:    

1. GRATITUDE: What are you grateful for in your life? What life experiences do you cherish? Connecting with gratitude for what you do have rather than focusing on what is lacking invites greater abundance.   

2. APPRECIATION: Appreciation is gratitude in action. Letting friends and family and support people know that you are thankful for their contribution to your well-being is a blessing. This practice strengthens the bonds we have  with each other. 

3. SILENCE: Going into silence invites a respite from the busyness and doingness of life. Sitting in silence deepens our spiritual connection and renews our body/mind and spirit.  

4. BLESSINGS: Offering prayers or blessings for others will reconnect you with your gratitude and appreciation. In silence you will open to spirit. No matter what your life circumstances may be, you can always offer blessings. Offering Blessings are like tickling the ivories of higher consciousness.

 Reach for the higher resonance and this will become your constant reality.  

With peace and joy,

 Love and Shanti
