Prayer for difficult situation

March 24, 2018

Hi Everyone,

I face a difficult situation today. This is the prayer I wrote to handle this event.


So God.

You already know what’s in my heart and on my mind. You know that I go through times when I doubt your existence and your qualities, when I’m more than ready to walk away from anything and anyone that acknowledges or celebrates you

So therefore, I thank you for sending me the email about the Rules of the Mind. I thank you for reminding me that creating a life is about choice and emotion and single mindedness, what some people call the Law of Congruency, the subconscious and conscious are in agreement.

Therefore, for this meeting, I choose the outcome that is the highest and best for all concerned; I choose the outcome of clarity. I choose the emotions of harmony, compassion, empathy, and kindness.

I choose to be single minded about the purpose of this meeting and its outcome.

I know that nothing, absolutely nothing, including any experience of abuse or trauma or conflict from the past or now existing in the present, disrupts or interferes with the flow of this gathering and its outcome.

I give thanks that the highest and best is present now and continues to do its good and perfect work.

I release this word into the Mind of Spirit and into the action of Universal Law. 

And so it is.


Prayer for good

Sept. 4, 2017

Hi Everyone,

A friend sent this. He swears that this has brought he and his wife much good.

He says that he repeats this three to four times a day.

“I have absolute trust in God and all things good. I know that I will be able to meet any situation at any time, for God is my immediate source of supply, presenting me with all necessary ideas in the right way at the right time.

God’s riches are forever flowing freely in my life, and there is always a Divine surplus.

As I repeat these truths, I know my mind is being conditioned to receive Divine supply forever flowing.

I give thanks for the immediate and complete payment of all my financial obligations now quickly, easily, and in peace. I am receiving now.

God’s love fills my soul and I radiate love and goodwill to all those around me and to all people everywhere. God’s love flows through me as harmony, love, companionship, wealth and true expression.

God is my shepherd, and I shall always have more than enough money, love, beauty and companionship.

God answers me now and I give thanks for I know God is already supplying me with all I need, require and desire in great abundance.

And so it is.

Which stage is yours?

Oct. 31, 2016

Hi Everyone,

I listened to Michael Beckwith, founder of Agape International Spiritual Center, talk about the Four Stages of Spiritual Development. He stated that 95 percent of the world’s population is in Stage 1; 3 percent are in Stage 2; and, 2 percent are in Stage 3; very, very few humans ever reach Stage 4.

The Four Stages of Development

These stages apply to organizations as well as to individuals.

The stages are:

  • Victim: the victim stage is when life happens to us; we blame everyone and everything for our difficulties; we are constantly saying “Poor me” to describe much of our life. We feel and believe that we are powerless.
  • Channeler: in the channeler stage, we create our life; we take responsibility; we make choices; our concern is to get and to accumulate things like cars, houses, careers, etc
  • Mission: in the mission stage, we have identified and accepted our calling; we are totally dedicated to fulfilling our mission, nothing else matters. Most of us have more than one mission; when the mission is fulfilled, we have heaven on earth.
  • God: in the God stage, we become God; we can bring forth whatever we choose easily and quickly; very few people reach this stage; those that do quickly leave the planet.

Missions are opportunities like:

  • making sure that every person has more than enough useable water everyday
  • giving each individual easy access to a fabulous education
  • colonizing the moon
  • removing bad things from the air
  • teaching people everything they need to know and to practice to be successful channelers
  • taking care of one’s family
  • having the career that one’s soul desires
  • eliminating stress

Remember that a mission gives you a why. People want to know the why. They care about why, not you, not your organization, not the how, not even the when, but the why.

Which stage is yours? Are you ready to leave that stage and move to the next?

More about how to do that next week.

I’m so glad you’re reading this. I’m a channeler moving into mission. It’s nice to have company. Thanks for thinking about coming with me.

Jay Robbins

March 17, 2015

Hi Everyone,
Jay Robbins, friend and pastor of the Douglasville, GA Center for Spiritual Living, left this life to enter another about a week ago. He made his transition from here to Heaven easily and without effort.

We know that Jay is well, with those he loved and who loved him, and is with God and all the heavenly host. All is well with Jay and with us, those who knew and loved him.

Jay’s Work
What we may not know is that Jay got to do exactly what he wanted: he wanted to be a minister to a church that he would stay with until he died. That’s exactly what happened.

Jay did the work of becoming a minister, the work of being a minister and the work of maintaining and growing a church until the day he died.

We thank Jay for a job well done, and we thank him for something greater: we thank him for showing us that it’s possible to have the life we choose.

 The Key
The key to having the life we decide on is to know what that is, and then to do the work necessary to have it.

This takes courage. Most of us, when we search our heart and ask for guidance to know what it is that we really want, are surprised to discover that what we’ve been striving for isn’t even close to our true desires.

We truly need the guidance of the angels to know, to accept and then to do what is necessary to have the life style we desire.

Angels of All of Us
Angels of all of us,

We are grateful that we know Jay is with all of you, is safe and that all is well.

We are grateful that Jay led by example; that he taught us much.

We are thankful that we realize that perhaps his greatest teaching is that we can have the life that we pick.

Angels of all of us,

We ask for guidance to know the desires of our heart. We want to know the details of the kind of life that would please our self including our heart and mind.

We ask that this answer be revealed to us in such a way that we have to recognize it.  We ask this knowing that you will guide us to the highest and best.

We ask that we be gently guided to the life that is meant for us. We ask this knowing that health, prosperity, healthy relationships and using our bundle of talents, abilities and skills in such a way that we make meaningful contributions to our self, families, friends and communities is our birth right.

These qualities and circumstances are with us always, no matter where we are, or the kind of work we do. We are always prosperous, healthy, loved and loving and contributors of our talents, gifts and skills.

We ask for the courage to recognize and accept the guidance that you give us. We ask for the strength to leave that which isn’t for us.

We ask that when we leave this life and enter the next life that we can say with truth and joy, “I lived the life I desired. All is well and will continue to be so.”

And so it is.

Work Worsens

Jan. 27, 2015

Hi Everyone,

About a year or so ago, about the time of the U.S. government shutdown, a group of American federal (government) employees came to me for help.

These are not the folks in Washington, D.C. who earn well over $100,000 a year, but folks earning less than $50,000 a year with families to support.

The loss of income was creating havoc so we asked the angels for help in increasing income.

When the shutdown ended and certain government employees were given their lost wages, the group thought their work troubles were over. They returned yesterday.

Work Worsens
It seems that work has gotten worse. Their stress has multiplied many times. Their quotas—how much they are to get done in an hour—have increased. Their managers and bosses—never pleasant people before—have gotten meaner and nastier. This seems to be the result of recent budget cuts by the Congress; however, none in the group were certain of the cause.

Heart-felt Desires
After much discussion—this took most of Monday—the group decided on three heart-felt desires:

  1. To survive this present circumstance physically, mentally and emotionally healthy and strong
  2. To be kind, compassionate and empathic to all involved in this situation including bosses and managers
  3. And, to have work that brings joy, satisfaction, recognition and the money amounts each prefers.

Yes. A tall order. One that most certainly will take the help of the angels. Let’s ask them now.

Angels of All of Us
Angels of all of us,
We are grateful for your presence. We give thanks for your support and nurturance. Today, we ask for guidance.

Angels of all of us,
We know you are always near and that you know the circumstances and situations of our life. We need not repeat the details. You know them. You witnessed them. You are aware of what is happening in our work life.

We ask for guidance about how to survive and relieve this situation. We ask that you remind us of all the actions we must to do rid ourselves of stress and the ugly thoughts and reactions that occur when humans are overworked and under compensated.  We thank you for these reminders and encouragements.

We ask for support in being kind and compassionate to those who are causing the stressful situations and to all those who are involved in this experience. Help us to respond correctly but pleasantly. Help us to put out the fires instead of expanding them. Help us be the clean, clear waters of peace.

We ask for help in finding work that brings us joy, satisfaction, recognition and the money amounts we prefer. Most of us don’t want to leave our present employer. However, we recognize that this might be necessary. Guide us to the right work environment and work for us. Help us to make good decisions. Help us to let go with ease, doing the least harm possible.

We thank you for helping us meet this challenge and to have serenity. That is, we recognize what we can and cannot change; we do what is necessary for us to be in the flow of love.

And so it is.

No, the most powerful word

Jan. 19, 2015

Hi Everyone,
I usually don’t get the kind of call I received Friday, Jan. 16, 2015. It was deeply disturbing. As I listened, I had two thoughts:

  • Why is this person telling me this? (Yes. I know. Listening is part of my earthly mission.)
  • And, why did this person remain in this situation?

These were asked on my background thought of “Don’t judge. No opinions needed. You don’t know the total past, the total present or the total future. Be still and listen.”

Later, I received the message from the angels to hand this situation over to God and them. There was nothing I could do.

The Most Powerful Word
It wasn’t the story of abuse and its aftermath that so sadden me as it was the receiver and observer of the abuse done to her children not knowing that she didn’t have to be part of this.

She didn’t know that “No” is the most powerful word in the Universe. She didn’t know that all of us including her, her children and the abuser are destined to be and to live in love and as love.

Mother’s Wisdom
I am very fortunate. The first and last time I came home from school with a bad grade, and when questioned about it, made some remark about doing what my mother did: marry a man and let him take care of me, my mother asked a life changing question, “What are you going to do if he dies or gets sick or is injured and can’t work? You will be responsible for providing for your family. Just how do you intend to do that?”

My mother had the grace and the wisdom to not tell me about spousal abandonment and abuse.

I became focused on doing well in school and learning how to earn money for self and family. Today, I know beyond the merest shadow of a doubt that I will always find a way to bring enough income into my home to spend, save and give. I know who I am, my talents, skills and abilities. This is a blessing for which I give thanks daily.

All people—male, female, young, middle age, old— need this knowledge of self. This knowing is a great blessing. I ask that all of us be given this knowing.

A Greater Wisdom
However, a wisdom greater then my mother’s comes from Conversations with God author, Neale Donald Walsh, “I will love myself enough to remove myself from the situation.”

One look at the world, our community, our family and our self tells us that we don’t know how to love our self. Many of us do the exact opposite of loving the self, we hate.

We simply don’t know how to love our self. That is our first task: to love our self, then and only then can we love others, then and only then can we love God.

So how do we do this, this loving of the self? We ask the angels to tell us, show us and lead us to the situations, people, ideas, information and energy that will cause us to love our self.

Angels of All of Us
Angels of all of us,
We give thanks that we are connected to you, that we can feel your wings touching us, guiding us, preparing the way for us.

We are grateful that we know that asking questions is the best way to help you understand what’s going on in our human world and the kind of help and support we might require.

So, today, we ask, “What are the ways to love myself? Show me the highest and best ways.”

We, also, ask to immediately recognize love, to freely go to it and remain with it. We ask that love and loving ways becomes our preference and our habit.

Angels of all of us,

We are grateful for all the nurturance and support you provide for us. We know that receiving what you give is a form of love. We are appreciative. Thank you.

And so it is.

Master of Truth Recognition, part 2

July 30, 2014


The best Masters of Truth Recognition are those who know and love themSelves.

Remember to capitalize “Self”; you are a creation of God, endowed with all the qualities and characteristics of your Creator plus a special gifting of talents, abilities and skills.

It’s this special gifting that people tend to ignore, or worse, never identify.

Who Are You Really

I wrote Who Are You Really because, at one time, I couldn’t identify my special gifting. I couldn’t say:

“The themes (constant appearing patterns) in my life are peace maker (diplomat), problem solver and knowledge acquirer.

My overriding interests are spiritual development and nature.

My greatest talent (genius) is the ability to explain what is, so that others gain understanding and appreciation of what is.

I seek (my soul desires) learning, gratitude, honesty, beauty, excellence and newness (creativity).

I function best in environments that are quiet, orderly, beautiful, and ones that allow independence and relief from micro and macro management.”

Knowing this has brought me personal peace and courage. I know who I am, and I know my purpose


My particular bundle of talents, skills and abilities help me complete the tasks I was sent here to do.

Knowledge of Self has strengthen my inner core. I now stand firm and can’t easily be persuaded to abandon who I am and what I am about.

As I listen to leaders, I ask two question, “Are they telling the truth?” and “Does what they want done help me accomplish my purpose?”


You can have this same personal peace and inner strength.

Do the work outlined in my book Who Are You Really. Identify your unique gifting of talents, skills and abilities.

Knowing this will help you be a Master of Truth Recognition and turn from seducers, charmers, liars, manipulators and controllers.

Yes. Guidance is needed. Let us ask the angels for help.

Angels of All of Us

Angels of all of us,

We give thanks that you angels, God, the ascended masters and the master teachers are willing to help us live the best life possible.

We give thanks that we are the Creations of God and are endowed with all the qualities and characteristics of the Creator.

Therefore, we know that we are creators and organizers, powerful and wise, healthy and strong, and are givers of our unique bundle of talents, skills and abilities.

Our special gifting helps us more easily identify and fulfill our mission for this particular life experience.

We give thanks that this is so.


We give thanks that you are with us, helping us do the work of identifying our gifting, naming each one, accepting, strengthening and developing each one.

We are grateful that as we know and accept the truth about our uniqueness, we more easily recognize others truth tellers; and thus, we make good decisions about who and what to follow.

And so it is.

Masters of Truth Recognition, part 1

July 20, 2014


Masters of Truth Recognition easily identify lies, seductions and manipulations. They know who speaks truth and who doesn’t. They sense those who want our support in order to bring forth the greater good and those who want to line their own pockets with gold.

The first step in becoming a Master of Truth Recognition is changing the belief, thought and expression “I am a child of God” to “I am a creation of God”.

Child means that one is 14 or younger and is acquiring a foundation on which to place wisdom, strength and skills.

However, we aren’t children. We aren’t weak, small or lacking in any good thing.

Creations of God
We are creations of God; therefore, we have all the qualities and characteristics of the Creator because that is what creators do: they impart their qualities into whatever they create.

We are what God is:

We are all powerful, all knowing, all giving spiritual beings. We are creators and organizers. We are inspirations and motivators.

For most of us, the above words are impossible to accept for we have been told that we are the opposite of greatness from the beginning of this life experience.

We need the angels to help us accept who we are really: the creations of God.

Angels of All of Us

Angels of all of us,
We are grateful that we are Masters of Truth Recognition. It’s a relief to know when we are being lied to, charmed, seduced and manipulated.

We are thankful that we hear the truth and know what we hear is so. It’s a relief to know that what we see and sense is real.

We easily bypass the fake, the false statements and those who have forgotten who they are: a creation of God.

We, the Masters of Truth Recognition, are very aware that we are creations of God and thus have all the qualities and characteristics of God.

We know that we are powerful, knowledgeable and the givers in the Universe. We know we are stable, secure and solid. We know that we are always learning, growing and becoming more.

Angels of all of us,
Remind us daily of our greatness, of our ability to discern truth from falsehood, of our strength and abilities.

Help us to accept that we are the mighty creations of God and that each of us stands tall and strong.

Remind us that we are Masters of Truth Recognition and that we can and do recognize the truth and truth tellers.

Remind us that as Masters of Truth Recognition we are obligated to tell the truth always and to be clean in all communications. Help us to do this.

Guide us to use our abilities as Masters of Truth Recognition to carefully choose who and what we will serve.  Remind us that our choices must reflect who we are really: creations of God.

We give thanks and gratefully receive all the guidance, nurturance and support given us to be who we really are.

We stand with the angels, the ascended masters, the master teachers and all those who know that it is from the truth and only from the truth that peace, prosperity, health and empowering relationships come.

And so it is.

New View

March 16, 2014


I got a new view of life this week.

Until this week, I’ve imaged all life existing in an energy field called God, with me and all life connected to this super creative, organizing intelligence of all there was, is or will be, God.

In other words, God was on the outside of me, but existing in the same area and always accessible.

This week, I got the reverse image:  God dwells inside of me and all others, closer than breathe, nearer then touch.

Until this week, I’ve lived life as if the answers to my questions were with this outside God.  Now, I’ve come believe that the answers are inside of me, where God dwells.

I’ve come to believe that I’ve known the answers all along, I just didn’t have the confidence to accept them.

Even though I’ve heard most of these ideas before, this was the first time that I understood how much power accepting that I already have the answers gives me.

As always, I go to the angels for assistance.

Angels of All of Us

Angels of all of us,

All of us are grateful for new ideas, new ways of being, and new ways of thinking.  We are grateful for new understandings.  We are grateful for an expanded view of life and how it works.

As we become aware of newness, we ask to know that this new is genuine and true, that it supports the Light, and lifts us into greatness.

As we work with new, we ask for increased confidence, strength and power.  We ask to be led to the circumstances that will benefit most from the new.  We ask for protection and leadership.

Angels of all of us, this is Barbara speaking the Word for all those who are open and receptive to it and for all those who recognize that it is from the truth and only from the truth that health, prosperity, empowering relationships and contributions flow.

Angels of all of us, we thank you for being with us, for supporting and nurturing us.

And so it is.

Who We Are Really Spiritually

Jan. 10, 2014


We’ve been discussing how to claim the promise of the 7th year: release from lack and limitation.

For me this means that I dare to walk in my calling, that I dare to be exceptional and that I dare to walk with God.

I’ve had this as a personal goal for many years.  Even though I had a very good idea about my calling, had been practicing my walk with God, and had worked to be above average in all that I did, I wasn’t certain about my calling, about who I was really.

Who Are You Really

I kept affirming that I knew.  Eventually, I wrote Who Are You Really which is a guide to finding out who we are in the secular world.  Even though the book does contain spiritual guidance for each of us to be our own career counselor, it doesn’t contain specifics of who we are really in the spiritual realm.

So, I’m going to tell you.  I state in the book, Who You Are Really, that each of us is the beloved of God.  This is the most important thing in the Universe to know.

Being the beloved of God means that each of us is a unique person created in the likeness of God.  That means that we have the characteristics of God, all of them, every single one.

Who Are We Spiritually

Who are we really spiritually?  We are all the things God is: creative, exceptional, organizers, strong, talented, courageous; we are freedom, health, abundance, increase, power, over-comers, mighty heroes, warriors, winners, and achievers.

We are love, forgiveness, nurturance and peace.  We are amazing.

We are the creation of God.  We have God’s DNA.  We can and do accomplish as God did and does accomplish.

Let us go to the angels for coaching in acting, believing and speaking that we do all that God does.

Ask the Angels  

Angels of all of us,

Constantly remind us that we are the beloved of God.  We are loved by God.  We are the creation of God therefore we have all the power, knowledge and abilities that God has.

We are enabled to bring forth greatness.  We are given everything we need to do this.

This is Rev. Barbara.  I speak for all those who are open and receptive to knowing the truth for it is from the truth that all good comes.

Angels of all of us,

We thank you for your help and support, for your love and your counsel.
