Be Not In Doubt



“Be not in doubt the power of love.


Do not pulse fear… only love.


Participate, or do not complain.



Look not at the unknown, Look not into the past.



Be here!



If you choose to look forward, project only light and love.


When you wake up, do not judge yourself.



St. Germaine.









~ Imelda Frances Burnadette Maguire ~

 2009


On the Eve. of the Millennium 2000 my 50th birthday, I found myself in recovery on the psychiatric ward at the Oshawa General Hospital. 

The Ten Illusions came to me in a gift package of inspiring uplifting notes and quotes to read and ponder upon ~ a gift from my daughter.  
  


Profound is this gift of wisdom delivered with true love ~





The Ten Illusions

1.
Need Exists

2.
Failure Exists

3.
Disunity Exists

4.
Insufficiency Exists

5.
Requirement Exists

6.
Judgment Exists

7.
Condemnation Exists

8.
Conditionality Exists

9.
Superiority Exists

10.
Ignorance Exists





Why do these things exist?

What might life be like if they indeed did not exist?

"The Inner Eye"


The Inner Eye

Awakening Self

Continually changing as it evolves in the delight of every new moment

The Inner Eye


Work on The Inner Eye came from a meditation on the Kundalini, the Awakening Self.


On the night my father passed I had a dream about the Lost City of Atlantis falling into the ocean.


I was there when the ancient ones fount Egypt.
The God Horus appeared in a crystal pyramid of the palest green peridot while directing the elders to the new land.

When I awoke the vision of  Inner Eye was forever planted in the centre of my forehead.

In 1982 I had another dream where I had met myself during an initiation of the Ancient Ones.


Cleansed from head to foot was I, the young girl with the dark hair ~ in love with the 
memory of patchouli oil.



Light of the full moon shone its ray through the inner passage of Great Pyramid.

~ My Egypt ~

The very haunting image of the above oasis came from a dream that forever pleasantly filters through the conscious mind.  There are days while walking planet earth that an overwhelming sense of homesick euphoria fills that waking moment.


What remain are enchanting memories of days gone and those yet to come that are full of images of fantasy and wonder of a brighter life and another time.



Every once in awhile one can catch a glimpse of the self looking back through a great void and wondering why things happen the way that they do on that dark night of a soul?  



Look back? Yes indeed, look back ~ but for only a quick glance, mindful of a lesson learned, then set that memory free forever. When you catch that thought again, look  ~*then*\~~~ eagerly ahead to all the wonders yet to unfold in this lifetime.



It seems a brighter essence when one is lost in the healing of timeless moment.

The Scarab

The Scarab was used as a symbol to produce jewelry mainly rings and bracelets for Egyptian Kings to place on the servers of their households.


Should a slave be hurt or lost the color or type of the stone would stand as testament to all under his kingdom that the bearer of the Scarab indeed did belong to his household.  Receiving the Scarab insured that the message was surely from the Royal Chamber.  

Great Honor bestowed to the bearer of the Kings Ring.
