Saturdays to me was a truly special day.It was a day, when I devoutly attended Novena(prayers and singing) church services in dedication to the Virgin Mary.As a born and raised Catholic,I was taught that this was an honorable thing to do …to be able to give the Virgin Mary homage, thanks and ask for comfort, blessings and succour.To me the Virgin Mary represented Motherly Love, kindness,warmness,tenderness, mercy and deep understanding.And so I went devotedly most Saturdays(I remember making every effort to do so).I went to ask earnestly despite my still very much being caught up in worldly frenzy,I went in deep reverence to pray for the loving attributes that this Blessed Entity represented.
How do we pray?
In and through my praying experiences,prayer becomes potent when it is short and it is said simply,earnestly and humbly,such as ‘Help me,’Give me strength and courage to go through this painful time,”Thank you,”Help me to face the truth,”Guide me,”May I be safe,”May so and so be safe,”May I find peace,’etc.When a prayer is said and repeated in a fervent,simple and short manner,it becomes a positive direct affirmation to help oneself gain presence,courage,relief,calmness,clarity and insight to face all difficult events.It helps us see and hear within our being of what is being said and why we say it.Simple prayers become transformative.We learn to make subtle changes within ourselves and follow up with positive actions of the words we say.
Therefore it is said that a child’s prayer is powerful due to its purity,simplicity and unadulterated supplication!

Here is a preview and glimpse of having an understanding into what this heartfelt spiritually surrendered book might be about.Thank you for your time and support.Feel free to share if you like.
What is our spiritual agenda for the day?for now?apart from having a little fun, and carrying out duties,work,chores and other mundane activities.
Could it be the practice of being kind in the face of unkindness?
Could it be making an assertive effort in spending a few minutes time alone to self-reflect,to listen to the heart,to touch the heart?,to rest the mind(learning to meditate)?
Could it be allowing the self to be Present/Aware of intentions,thoughts,actions,reactions,speech/words.
Could it be feeling of gratitude to someone(a stranger,an enemy)to life itself, to a situation,perhaps offering a good deed in thankfulness not only to whomever that made you feel good but reaching out into the unknown to witness that True Self of charity coming from within.
And it could be more noble agendas that the creative heart wants to be opened up to,not only in giving,but in being not afraid to receive goodness from others(without having any motive to mistrust,without further expectations,or misunderstandings or being doubtful about).
Worldly distractions provide a platform to forget the True Self.
Spiritual endeavours,provide the connection of remembrance of our True self.
It is with a deep feeling of blessings that I am pleased to announce the official release of my book which is written with a heartfelt and sole intention to help raise consciousness and awareness in each and every human heart to help make this world a better place to live in with the promoting of compassion and kindness and the ending of unnecessary suffering! It is available for purchase on Amazon and Chapters/Indigo websites worldwide.
It is truly a momentous time for me to witness the release of this book into the world and surrender it into the hands of all who want to walk into the path of Truth and take courage to face and resurrect all that beauteous gems within the True Self which lay dormant waiting to be fully animated into everlasting Human Life.This book does not in any way speak of a religious context telling anyone to believe in anything good or not good.It does not speak of tones in any judgmental,criticising or condenming way.Matter of fact in this book, I embrace everything and everyone as I reveal my own faults,follies and foolishness and how waking up to realize my sufferings propelled me to move inward into myself to see the ‘demons’ as well as treasures buried so deep that I had to resurrect all good and bad within my being,sweeping clean all those that are poisonous and toxic for myself and others and revelling and sharing in all that are beauteous and good.
In this book, I open up myself explicitly to share with the world the wonders,joys, triumphs,and dangers of traversing on this wondrous journey we know as the spiritual journey….I speak directly, truthfully and very simply from my heart to your heart without any agenda other than being a lamp to help you find that light-switch in the dark.It is then up to each one to turn on the light switch of your own heart and leave it on for others to find their way!
This book is available on all amazon sites,Barnes and Noble,ebay and Chapters.ca
