The world is filled with atrocities nowadays and it certainly isn’t the same as when I was a kid. The news is unbearable to me and scares or angers me so I stopped watching it in 2003 for that very reason. Things that happen to us are amplified and turned up past ten to eleven and no one is stepping back from their anger to take a minute to understand why.
It’s time to see things for what they are and use them as learning experiences so they don’t have to keep happening and becoming more potent. That is what will happen if we don’t learn to love and forgive from the heart.
To truly forgive something you have to do it right and forgive it as though it never happened. This is the way of Jesus. This was his legacy. I am not religious but I agree 100% with what he stood for. How do you forgive something attrocious?
A little known fact about true forgiveness is that it’s not about the person or incident you are forgiving. They have nothing to do with what happened and it’s none of your business to react. It is about your peace of mind. Your job is act like it never happened. To do this is the best revenge you could ever get on something or someone. It is that simple.
You only have to focus on acting like it never happened. You don’t even have to try to love the person or incident, just know that it is none of your business to react or judge. The love will come later. The love will come after you practice not reacting and it will come very strong.
I recently practiced this brand of forgiveness and it was miraculous how much of an impact it had on my life. People truly resonated on a very deep level with my not reacting or judging them.
How many people can say that they actually live like this. You go to church or yoga and are told that this is the right way to be but as soon as you leave it’s another story. You are angry at someone in traffic or at work and you throw the simple forgiveness application out the window.
Don’t you want to be one of the people who started world peace? This is why we are on the planet, to learn and teach love and forgiveness. This is why things are so crazy and intense in our lives and in society, so that we can learn to forgive.
True forgiveness is to forgive the victim and the one who committed the act of violence. They are one in the same in that they both chose to incarnate and participate in an intense and tragic event and both deserve our love. I’m not saying what anyone who commits violence does is right but it doesn’t mean that they don’t deserve to be deeply loved as well. They probably need more love to resort to violence.
All you have to do to truly forgive is not react next time you are in a stressful situation. Practice not reacting and knowing it’s none of your business not to judge. It’s tough at first but the more you practice, the easier it gets, until it is second nature.
Let’s be the ones to create world peace. I love you all with all of my heart.

I was fortunate to have Kay Hamill do a dream interpretation for me. have never met nor spoken to Kay, but via email she was able to interpret my dream and I realized she was right on the mark. It reflected to me what was going on in my life at the time, something I could not figure out for myself. I highly recommend both a tarot reading and dream interpretation.

When you are talking to Sparkle, miracles happen. Her erudite and profound way of getting to the bottom of what it is we are believing is second to none. I've watched as Sparkle listens to someone and finds a way of getting exactly to where that person needs to see from, just by being her wonderful and intuitive self. Her name fits her perfectly, this sparkling ray of light has blessed so many with her humorous musings, which hide profound trusts, all wrapped up in a giggle or three. Sparkle is simply love on legs. Time spent in the company of this gorgeous soul can only bring more joy into anyone's life.

The thing that differentiates you (Sally) from others, is that you do not go out to people with an agenda, but with unconditional love. I still cannot describe the state I was in when you visited Switzerland. I felt as if I were in a state of flow and blissful happiness. I want to learn from you how one can live like this every day.
