As I breathe, I bring my attention to the One. The One Love, the One Mind, the One Presence; the overarching Goodness in which everything rests and from which everything springs. This One is ever Creative, ever Loving, ever moving joyously into abundant new forms. It is made manifest as all the planets and the galaxies; as the space between stars; the supernovas and the black holes; all the hidden worlds within our very cells.

This Divine Presence, is the ever expanding Universe, and more. It Is every supply and demand, It encompasses all dichotomies, It Is the answer to all seeking and to every request. It Is bigger and vaster than I can fully comprehend, and yet It Is also as sweet and familiar and close as my most treasured friend or my very breath.

Knowing this Truth, I can relax into the certainty that this same energy and power that moves the planets in their orbits, is everywhere present and therefore active in Its expression of Goodness and Abundance; as my work, and my life, and my health, and my home, and my finances, and my community. It knows and loves me constantly and continually; and I know right here and right now that this Love expresses as the highest octave of all I desire. I am this Love, I am this expression and so as I speak my word of power it ripples across the fabric of being and demonstrates instantly as my consciousness and in perfect timing in the body of my affairs.

I enjoy wonderful relationships and fabulous projects, I revel in the abundance and ease in my finances and in my world. Dollars flow to me and my community, opportunities abound, joy happens, love and life sparkle with renewed splendor. I truly know Life is Good. I am Good. All is well.

I find myself saying thank you, thank you, thank you, as a silent prayer throughout my day. I am so grateful for all this richness and beauty, for the deep knowing of the Truth of my Worth. I am so thankful for all the good I witness around me. For all my blessings. Thank you God! Thank you Universe!

I release all of these words and emotions and images into the law which only ever says yes, and therefore I rest in calm certainty that this returns to me clothed in manifestation as I know it is already done. And So It Is!

Truth in advertising; unedited evolution ~ Erika Ginnis

Faith and Trust

Something I did the other day, maybe two days ago. Was to take my iPhone (which I use way more than I ever thought I would) and start a new note. Not a big deal right? Well maybe, but it was really helpful to me at least the evening I did it because I started a list of things that have gone well for me.

Let me back up a bit and let you know why I was doing that in the first place…Sometimes I am not sure what to share on my blog. I have three all together (but of course, if one is good m-u-s-t add MORE) and this one is really dedicated to the process of evolution that I believe we are all hip deep in, on this lovely blue planet here at the beginning of the 21st Century.

I started this blog because I had ideas and visions and experiences that I thought might be of use to other people out there who may be having something similar happening to them in the midst of all this change. Being a metaphysical teacher and counselor, it kind of made sense to me. I am still very much in line with that intention. The thing is, I find that I sometimes edit my own experience because I want to be a place of inspiration rather than adding to the angst.

This is good in theory, but more difficult in practice, because I find I can be in such an “editing” mode that I don’t write as often as I might, or share all that I might. The thing is, there are most likely not that many people reading this anyway, so why all the self-critique? Part of it is just old habits, part of it is training, part is wanting to show up differently in various aspects of my life. What is occurring to me however, is that I often get so much value out of the experience of others as I hear their stories; what makes me think that only the “cream” of my experience will be of use to someone else? This is a process of shifting and change we are all involved in and sometimes it isn’t all neat and tidy.

If all I show is the neat and tidy aspects of what is going on, what kind of message does that give? And once again I have to ask who am I really writing for? If I am writing for my self and my own evolution then I need to be willing to process all that I am really processing, not just what I judge as being helpful to someone else; if I am writing for other people (and that gets sticky all on its own) then what makes me think that they are not going to relate to what ever it is that is up for me in my life at that moment? Law of attraction being what it is, wouldn’t it follow that whoever finds me on a given day will be drawn there simply by the vibrations of the thoughts and words that I am pondering, and wouldn’t that mean it is perfect all along?

Thoughts are like stars, they have their own gravity and collect their own solar system around them.

I am the creator of these thoughts, or perhaps I am the medium through which they come into this reality. Regardless I want to be in a place to respect that creative process and also revel in it; let my thoughts and ideas and observations come up from inside of me and spread out in all directions gathering what they will. I want to trust that whoever is reading, is here for some good of their own, and whatever I am sharing is going add to it in some fashion.

So back to the other evening…I am juggling a lot of emotional things these days. I have lost a parent recently; and by lost meaning their energy is still around but their body is not. I have another parent who is living in a “memory care” unit of a lovely facility, but which costs a fair bit to maintain. I have someone who I am technically married to who no longer lives with me and I am completely unsure about which direction that relationship should or will go; and while I attract a lot of dollars, I have also created a series of situations where what was promised did not actually arrive.

I understand this is my creation; it doesn’t always help to know that (especially if I use it to beat myself up) and it isn’t the bit of information that will help change it. How often do we rack our brains trying to find the place that originated the issue in the first place? What was I thinking, why did I attract that? Why am I still dealing with “..fill in the blank..”?

We are all in the process of sifting through the stuff that needs to change; it is happening on a personal level; a governmental level; an environmental level; and a consciousness level. These shifts can be enormous or tiny; we are all part of this larger moving energy and the whole thing is evolving is leaps and bounds. I am sure you have noticed!

This is a lot to chew on, and I sometimes let it all go, and dive into the deep of me. Then there are times where the things of the day require my attention; I must attend to the various details which are mine to do. I find myself scared, or hurt, or angry. I find myself tempted to stay in those places longer than it is prudent for my own peace of mind.

I generally don’t stay there too long, it’s just much to uncomfortable; but I would be lying if I said I was never there, because I am, and I do feel those things.

I have been working with some of that this last week, after one of my bills (the one for my Mom) went up, while one particular income stream went way down (eek). This brought up fear, and anger and hurt all at the same time. In the midst of all of this I found myself thinking about the many many times (in the past) that amazing answers, and ideas, and opportunities, and even cash, came my way to solve my “dilema du jour”.

So I thought maybe I should write some of that down, remind myself about it, see if I am just making that up or if it really has happened that way. I starting with the note screen on my phone and now it is so long it takes at least 10 scrolls (with my finger) to get to the end; even writing this I have added two more.

I am writing about this because it is what is going on with me. The list I made helped remind me of all the “out of the blue” things that have happened over and over again. This is important because those are the “solar systems” I want to populate.

I now find that I could probably use re-reading this list more than once. I am not sure how this next phase will right itself. However I have this blog, and since this is definitely “spiritual evolution on a personal level” this topic is totally applicable. And I will keep you (whoever you are) and me posted.

Aloha and Blessings,



Affirmation for wellbeing

I wrote this back in April and have been enjoying the feeling I get whenever I turn my attention to it. I thought I would share it as something simple to use to shift focus to experiencing more Wellbeing. Read it in such a way that you are saying it for yourself (meaning the “I” is your own “I” ). It is written as an affirmative prayer.

That which is the One Mind, the Universal Mind, is my mind.

That which is the One God, the Universal presence of Love and Light is my truth, and the Truth of me right here and right now. This Truth is the pattern of perfection that everything is created from, and rests within.

I know and accept the Truth of my being. I know I am guided and informed moment by moment, right action flows from me, where I am to go, who I am to see, my path opens before me and the way is easy to walk and the air is fragrant.

All that I need is supplied, all knowledge, all love, all community, all connection…dollars flow to me, friends find me, spirits lift me.

I am tranquil and at ease, knowing my sanctuary and security and source and supply are every surrounding me, and ever calling me forward in eager anticipation of even more good.

I am so very grateful for this truth, knowing that this Good, my personal Good is a larger Good than I can even imagine, I am grateful for the vastness of this truth, the deep satisfying feeling of it in each and every cell.

I release this treatment into the law knowing that it is the very nature of the law to bring this into form, so I relax and let go, knowing it is already done, and so it is.

The difference between my cat and plants.

These thoughts occurred to me at different times, and I put them together for a talk I gave last November.

The difference between my cat and plants.

This morning, thoughts about the cats: that every morning they are so cute and very concerned (esp Simba) about the food; like I am not going to feed them breakfast even though I am right there with the food and am putting it into the bowls; and that I or my partner or someone has done this every morning for years for them; and that regardless it is still like they don’t necessarily believe it’s going to happen this time.

I was laughing at them, and then I had to laugh at myself. I thought… how exactly like that am I, with Spirit. It doesn’t matter how many 100’s of times Spirit/The Universe has taken care of me and given me what I needed/asked for; I am still running around afraid that it will have forgotten me this time. I am just like Simba looking for the cat food thinking that somehow this morning it might not be there OMG.

Now on to plants (first some background)

As I read this I see that at the end of it I was just going out to look at houses with a Realtor. So that means that it was written more than 3 and ½ years ago, meaning at least 2 and 1/2 years before I bought the house I am now living in, in Hawaii. The Universe totally had my back and was already putting up the “trellis” that I would eventually grow toward on this Island. This is so good for me to remember…

Wed july 19th 2006 (Seattle WA)

I did put in some more flowers into my yard, and my Clematis has made it around the side of garage and onto the trellis I have had waiting for it (small pleasures). I even had a moment yesterday (here I go waxing philosophical) where I had this thought about the Universe…how when I set out to train the Clematis to come around the corner to the trellis, I set up some stuff for it to climb on. As it got around the corner one of the things I did (yesterday in fact) was decide to create additional structures (out of twine and nails) for it to climb on, as I could see that it would be really good for the plant if I did that…

OK so I move faster than the Clematis and I know where it is generally heading and where I want it to grow, plus I want it to flourish, so hence the extra trellis…

Now here’s the deal… I got this momentary sense of the Universe, in that “Ohhhh I see, here is another life analogy” kind of way.

If I were the Clematis and I had looked anytime before yesterday I wouldn’t have seen how I was going to make it to the metal trellis since there was this big gap between me and it.

I could have decided I would never make it, I could have worried, I might have questioned my growth, I could have seen the definite LACK of trellis or string…Luckily the Clematis is just growing and figuring it will climb on whatever it can and doesn’t stress (to my knowledge) the lack of visible support for it’s growth.

Which as it turns out is smart because what was actually true is that there was no trellis there until the plant had grown far enough to need it.

Me as the “quick” moving human could sting up the additional trellis in moments and have more than enough time for the plant to grow into it. Now the string is all set up and waiting for little leaves and branches to twine around them.

Anyway I had this moment of seeing me stringing the framework as analogous to the Universe creating the structure that I want to rest on and grow onto as I need it, and that looking ahead and not seeing a visible means of support for where I want to go, doesn’t mean a thing.

Ah to have the faith of the plants.
