Powerful Life-Changing Beatitudes. #2: Blessed are those who mourn…

The 8 Beatitudes, or blessings, or the be-attitudes, are the core of the core teachings Jesus came here to share, but what do they really mean?

5:4 #2 Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

The specific Greek word for ‘to mourn’ used originally, is the strongest word for mourning in the Greek language. It is the word which is used for mourning for the dead, for the passionate lament for one who was loved.

For what do we mourn as if it were a type of death? When we are spiritually destitute and finally surrender all to our Source, we realize what a mess we’ve made of our lives. We mourn for our regrets, our mistakes, things we said or did wrong, perhaps hurting ourselves, or others. Words and actions we wish we could retract but we can’t, regrets that tear us up inside. We mourn that, in our ignorance, we blunder our way through life, too often missing out on what might have been our bliss if we’d seen or understood more clearly. It is when we look back on our lives at the moment of death and regret what we didn’t have the courage to go for and that it is now too late.

So, paraphrased:

Oh the God-like joy when we finally admit and mourn for our mistakes, for the shambles we made of our lives, because we are comforted by the realization that, mistakes and all, we are loved by God anyway, unconditionally, without judgment, which is precisely how we are to love ourselves, and others. There is no greater comfort than this. To be loved anyway. This is joy.

Powerful Life-Changing Beatitudes. #1: Blessed are the poor in spirit…


* When we are surrounded by and filled with abundance – abundance of unconditional love (that means we are loved anyway), we can’t help but feel gratitude, and even more, to live in a constant state of gratitude.

* Gratitude for joy, beauty, Divine Wisdom and Guidance.

* Gratitude for the places where we live.

  • * Gratitude for our families and friends.
  • * Gratitude for our opportunities for service,

* Gratitude for life itself.

* Gratitude that we are never alone.

 * And even gratitude for life challenges that deepen us, strengthen us, that teach us compassion.

* Gratitude that there is hope and life beyond our fears, and that all we have to do is turn everything over in surrender.

* Gratitude that we are created from God-magnificence because that is all with which God creates, which by default, means that we, too, are magnificent.

* Gratitude that no matter how we use our free will, mistakes or triumph, God is always with us, loving us anyway, supporting us, leading us to the greatness we are meant to experience if we but allow it – and trust.

For what are you grateful?

God bless you.



Six Steps to an Abundant Life

The Gospel of John, Chapter 10, Verse 10: Jesus said, I have come that you may have life, and have it abundantly.

What is abundance?

For the answer, I’d like to share with you a Divine message I received on abundance because for several reasons I was uncomfortable with affluence. Have you ever felt that way? Jesus kept telling me I was wrong, that I misunderstood. So, like you are encouraged to do when you have questions, I asked for the truth. As soon as I ‘thought’ the word ‘abundance’ …

A HUGE fountain flashed into my mind. A fountain larger than anything you see in reality, with sparkling crystal-clear water gushing up high and then falling back down into the top container before overflowing into the next wider container that cascaded noisily into the deep basin below. The water caught the light like diamonds, shimmering and glittering. Never-ending.

“That is Abundance,” Jesus said. “More than you ever need, always free flowing.

“Oddly,” he explained, “some people are afraid of abundance, or that they will feel overwhelmed or it will change their lifestyle or they won’t feel wise enough to handle it well, or they feel guilty experiencing abundance if others are lacking. Or they think in limitation, incorrectly believing there are limited resources and they have less because others have taken more than their fair share.”

“That kind of false thinking means you believe that your abundance comes from outside yourself, when in Reality it comes from inside you, from your True Source, from your Unlimited Supplier.

He added…

“The Highest-Truth-thinking is not to pull everyone down to the lowest level of falsely perceived and illusionary limitation, but to encourage everyone to raise to the highest level of the true limitless abundance that they choose to experience.

Then he asked…

“Out of all the unlimited abundance what do you choose for you?”

I saw an instant image of the entire universe as a buffet table.

“What food dishes off of the unlimited buffet table do you like best? You can’t eat all of the food. That is too much, you choose what you want.

“You deal with abundance in the same way; you use the freely-offered gift and control it by deciding what out of the all of the ever-present abundance brings you pleasure, then select that, in the amount you decide.

“However,” he added, “in thinking about abundance, remember it’s not the material ‘stuff’ that is of the greatest import. It’s trusting in the God-gifts of which it is impossible to have too much – beauty, peace, joy, light, wisdom and love – and all the other God attributes. Open up to all of that abundance that you are willing to allow, for that is where your bliss lies – not with the temporary but with the Eternal.”

Six steps for an abundant life Jesus has taught me:

  1. Choose to live life to the fullest. Decide to experience the highest and best that is possible to experience because that is all God offers – the highest and best. Accepting anything less means you cheat yourself, you cheat the world.
  2. Accept life as the adventure it is. Take risks. Live in joy. Be bold. Live. Laugh. Love. Enjoy. Care. Be. Be who you are at all times – Love
  3. Don’t sit around waiting to die. Even if you’re already ill. The last breath comes soon enough. No matter your age or health, each moment is a new beginning, a new opportunity. Ask God if there is still something you are meant to do while still on this earth plane.
  4. If you feel strongly there is something God wants you to do, go for it. If you don’t, you’ll never know what might have happened if you but had courage. You might always wonder if you missed out on the greatest event that was to happen in your lifetime. One of those life-end regrets that is too late to change.
  5. Commitment: The first step is a doozy. But with that courage, comes Universal Divine support just waiting for our first step. That leap cannot be made for us. We have to choose to do it ourselves. Once we do, it seems miraculous how the Universe supports us in ways we never imagined.
  6. Surrender: I’ve learned that Surrender is more than releasing, it is, in reality, receiving. We have to release the fears and blockages, and then surrender to the Ultimate Force in order to make room to receive all of the fabulous abundance. Don’t we all want to receive whatever is the best for us? Then we have to make room for it. So, we ask God to empty us of all hindrances, fears and negative attitudes and then exclaim we’re ready to receive, with gratitude!

A thought to consider: If you could place an order, like from the menu of abundance, knowing it would be brought for you, what would you ask for? What would you like to do on this earth in this human experience while you are still here to do it? What will you regret if you don’t do it while you’re alive in the physical? Now is your chance. It’s your time! Now, go for it!

God bless you.

NEW DATE! “DIVINE COMMUNICATION – Trusting Your Intuition”

NEW DATE! YOU ARE INVITED TO an interactive discussion on “Divine Communication Trusting Your Intuition”, 9/12/2019, facilitated by Carolyne Cathey, author, teacher and spiritual counselor. Church of the Red Rocks, 54 Bowstring Drive, Sedona AZ. 

Carolyne asks, “How might you benefit if you strengthened your intuition-connection with the Wisest Mind in the Universe?” She will share the different ways you receive these messages, and how to tell if the they are real, or your imagination.

For example, have you…

  • Heard an inner voice that had the perfect answer, but you didn’t know whether to trust it?
  • Had a flash of an ‘aha’ thought or idea?
  • Wondered or prayed about something and all of a sudden a book falls open to the perfect answer, or you hear a snippet of a conversation or song lyrics that has exactly what you are looking for?
  • Had a dream that seemed unusually powerful or colorful, like a message dream?
  • Just ‘known’ something in your gut or in your heart and you didn’t know the details, but you just ‘knew’?

Carolyne invites you to raise awareness of the continual Divine Communication that is available to all of us, a powerful gift to each of us from God.


Everyone Receives Divine Communication – Part 1

Open up to your own Divine Communication

This post is about opening up to the truth of your own Divine communication by increasing your awareness of ways you receive this information, and then to continue strengthening that two-way, multi-dimensional conversation into the blessed partnership it truly is. Let me be clear—you do receive this communication, always. However, unless you are aware of that dialogue with your Source (or Holy Spirit, Angels, or Spiritual Mentors {all are connected and are from the same Source}) or unless you trust in the messages you receive, then you’re not experiencing the amazing quality of life available to you. The reason is because you’re not using the most powerful tool freely provided for you by your Creator—which is Divine communication, your direct source to Pure Intelligence.

How you receive the messages

You receive Divine messages in infinite ways from the Infinite. I’ve received them since I was a child. However, when younger I was afraid of them and never told anyone.

I now know, without doubt, that Divine communication is not paranormal – it’s normal! A natural component within our spiritual DNA. Part of the creation package.

As a result, I now know, without doubt, that EVERYONE is already connected. The problem is that many people don’t realize it exists, or they rationalize it away, or are afraid of it, but Divine communication is meant for everyone to access—it is a powerful gift to us from the “One.” Divine communication is not to fear, but to embrace. What is there to fear from the One that is only love, joy and goodness?

What are your four basic forms of Guidance?

According to Doreen Virtue in her book,
Divine Guidance: How to Have a Dialogue with God and Your Guardian Angels, verified by my own personal experiences and messages, there are four basic means of communication:

  1. Clairaudience (clear hearing);
  2. Clairsentience (clear sensing); 
  3. Claircognizance (clear knowing); and
  4. Clairvoyance (clear seeing). Plus I’ve added a fifth,
  5. Divine Intervention (I added this category).

By the way, you might receive messages in one, or all four methods. It doesn’t matter, as long as you receive them and recognize them for what they are – messages from the Divine specifically for you.

For me, sometimes the messages are absolutely clear the instant I receive them. Sometimes the meaning comes to me while I’m writing the messages down. Sometimes I receive them during quiet times, and sometimes in the middle of a busy, noisy day. Some come as answers to questions, and the answers are often the opposite of what I assumed. Some are unexpected and take me by surprise.

1. Clairaudience (clear hearing):

Sounds, voices and words. Have you ever heard sounds, voices and words but weren’t sure? The voice might even call you by name. This method of communication can be worrisome because you might fear someone out there in the world will tell you that if you hear voices, you’re crazy. I could say they are crazy because they don’t listen to the All Knowing wisdom that has all the answers.  But really its their own fear or ignorance speaking up.

For me, the verbal answers come through with the term ‘you’. For example,

  • “Why are you wasting your time when there is so much more available to you?”
  • “What do you want for your life?”
  • “I love you. Do you trust me?”

Sometimes there is a back-and-forth dialogue that is part of those messages where I ask, then argue, then listen, then admit the message doesn’t make sense to me, then continue asking and listening until I comprehend. Asking and questioning are vital components of the discussion. That means you are admitting what you don’t yet understand which allows the Divine to continue clarifying until you get it.

During my life I kept questioning the reality of the voices. One time I admitted my insecurity about it to Jesus. I heard him laugh then say, ‘Listen, Carolyne with an e…” because that is how my name is spelled. I realized I would never call myself that, and I finally started paying attention, with delightful results. We’ll discuss later how you can tell that the voice is authentic.

2. Clairsentience (Clear Sensing):

Feelings and hunches, emotions, physical sensations, smells. If you experienced any of those, and I’m sure you have, that’s Divine communication.

3. Claircognizance (clear knowing):

Thoughts, ideas, sparks of inspiration and inner certainty—like ‘knowing’ in which you receive information from Universal Intelligence. Have you ever just ‘known’? Received an idea or inspiration? That’s Divine communication.

4. Clairvoyance (Clear seeing):

Visions, images and mental pictures. They might be like a mental movie, or a snapshot of pictures inside or outside of your mind. They might be black and white, or color. Mine are always in extra vivid colors. The mental pictures can be literal or symbolic, and they can also come during dreams.

5. Divine Intervention:

I’d like to add a fifth method to the traditional four—Divine intervention. We’ve all experienced this. When something unexpected happens in our lives that we would never have purposely chosen, but when we get through the shift to the other side when things settle, we’re grateful it happened. Something better came out of it all. God knows best.

Once you start opening up to Divine communication, you’ll discover there is a lot of symbolism in your meditations, dreams and visions such as in animals, flowers and colors. Look up the symbolic descriptions and determine what feels right to you.

The Miracle of Being

“The Miracle of Being” audio and PDF is a talk I presented to the Center for Spiritual Living Ukiah (CA) on 9/9/2018.  (See the right sidebar for the audio player on “The Miracle of Being”)

 A quote from the talk:

 “Your being here, right here, at this moment, is a miracle. This “You are Here” moment is an adventure. This moment is your opportunity out of the immensity of infinity to co-create your life in a temporary setting as a human being in this specific place out of the entirety of the universe. Make it the best life you choose to make it. Accept the adventure for what it is. Take risks. Live in joy. Be bold. Live. Laugh. Love. Enjoy. Care. Be. Be who you are. Love.”  Jesus, “Divine Messages from Jesus”

You are invited to listen to this inspirational talk on our making our temporary physical lives the highest and best possible while on this planet. May the talk inspire you as well.

“Divine Messages from Jesus”

divine-messages-book-cover-2-front“Divine Messages from Jesus, for a magnificent life” is the perfect gift for you and your friends. It’s long-lasting and non-fattening. 🙂

Available in Paperback and Kindle

Excerpt from the book:

“JESUS, MY SPIRITUAL mentor, called me to serve as a conduit through whom he may share eternal truths with you and the world. Your source for Divine messages will be unique to you; there are many angels, spiritual mentors and guides that, with your permission, will guide you into a co-creation of the wonder that is your life.

“These messages aren’t about being Christian or any particular religion, or any religion at all. They are about eternal truths that are always true, now and forever, Truths that can enrich and transform you and your life.

“Jesus assures me the eternal truth is the eternal truth no matter the source though which it comes. These are God-truths beyond any man-defined barriers and too-small boxes into which we laughably believe we can cram the Divine. Through the Divine messages you’ll learn that some of what we’ve been taught about Jesus isn’t necessarily the truth and that his teachings are often misrepresented. As he explains in the message ‘Don’t Throw Away the Gift Because You Don’t Like the Wrapping’, he is not the exception but the example, because, he said if what he taught and embodied was for only one person (him), then what was the point? The real point, he says, is that what he experienced we can all experience. In this book and in so many ways, he shows us how.

I asked Jesus/Holy Spirit what special message he wants to share with you about the chapter on Divine communication.

He said: “Remember, you are One with your Source. To be One means you are always connected.  To be connected means there is something that connects between you and the Divine, and it cannot be otherwise.  All it takes to receive this bounty so free flowing for you is for you to accept and be blessed by that Truth, for through that connection flows all of the love, goodness, power, joy, wisdom, guidance and peace into and through you if you will but allow it.”
