No Gold for It


Feb. 26, 2020

Hi Everyone,

A friend said, “My daughter is going back to her college campus. Her online classroom might be cheaper but college is more than classwork.”

We both looked at each other, nodded and said, “Wouldn’t take nothin for it! There is no amount of gold that I would exchange for my college education and experience.”

Much is said about how much gold (money) this one or that one has.

Is their life truly rich?

We don’t know about them. We know about us.

I have too many experiences and have gained too much as a result of those experiences that are worth more than gold (dollars).

I wouldn’t trade the experience of friends, community, music, art, beauty for money. I certainly wouldn’t trade my health or strength or wellness for gold.

I have the wisdom gained from years of observing, listening, studying. No one can put a price on wisdom or what I went through to gain that wisdom.

My life overflows with gold–the gold that can’t be brought or traded away or lost. I add to that gold daily.

Hope you know and value the gold in your life. Know that its yours–can’t be stolen or taken away–but can be used by you and others to make life richer, more satisfying.

Here’s to increasing the gold that matters.

Power of Purpose










Feb. 1, 2020

Hi Everyone,

My copy of “The Power of Purpose in Business” by Rhys Thomas came yesterday, Jan. 31, 2020. I have been a follower of Rhys for years.

He’s the guy who teaches the Profile System. His Profile System says that all of us fit into one of five profiles: creative idealists, emotional intelligence specialists, team players, charismatic leader and knowledge achievers.

Do not be put off by the word “business” in the title

For those of you who are in business or who want to be in business, this book is a God Send.

No matter. You, the reader, will gain clarity, the most priceless of all gifts, and wisdom, the second most priceless gifts.

I beg all of you to read and pay attention to the words about charismatic leaders; much will be made clear to you.

Failure Hones the Practice of Excellence

Nov. 11, 2013


It’s been an interesting week.  Several times each day, I’ve heard my angels whisper, “Are you practicing love”, or “Is what you about to do the practice of prosperity”, or “Are you practicing health”, or “Ahhh.  Those words are the practice of wisdom.  Very good.”? 

Their clear, understandable, focused comments are in response to last week’s blog “What You Practice Is What You Have” based on Cheri Huber’s book. 

I was even given a title for a bulletin board: We Practice Excellence; therefore, We Have Excellence

I practice excellence; I leave perfection to God and the angels.

And, since so many of the people I coach fear failure, or haven’t been exposed to the teaching of master teacher Thomas Edison, the American scientist and inventor, that states: “failure is simply the collection of ways that won’t work to solve the current challenge”. (paraphrased), I was led to add to the bulletin board: “We celebrate failure.  It hones our practice of excellence.”

As I said, it’s been an interesting week.  As I have practiced being, doing, having what I desire and listening to my angels, I have experienced continuous joy and peace. 

It is my hope that all of you have practiced being what you desire to be, do and have, that all of you have felt and heard your angels and that all of you experienced, are experiencing and will continue to experience the presence of angels.

Ask the Angels

Angels of all of us,

It is with great joy that I thank you for being with us this past week.  I thank you for sending wisdom.  I thank you for sending prosperity, health and love.  But, most of all, I thank you for making your presence known.

It is a great blessing to hear and feel your guidance, support and nurturance.  Sensing your presence makes it easier for us to open and receive the shower of blessings that is sent to us continuously.  Thank you.

This is Rev. Barbara speaking.  I speak the word for all those who are open and receptive to it.  I speak so that all of us will know the truth and have the freedom that truth brings.  I speak so that all of us will recognize and respond to the love and support of the angels.

Angels of all of us,

Thank you for a week of peace and joy.  Thank you for your clear, understandable, focused whispers of wisdom and encouragement.  Thank you for helping us receive the many blessings of the Universe.


Rev. Barbara
