Welcome to the inaugural month of Inner Mind Landscapes. I am thrilled with the
job Laurie Lacey has done putting my writing on line. It has been a fun process, inspiring and animating my
creative imagination. It is my hope and intention that you, the visiting reader will enjoy the results of these
efforts and find, in these writings, those sparks of insights carried by the words that set fire to and illuminate
realizations about your own inner mind landscapes. May you appreciate the potency of this ability “to imagine” as
an agent of positive change, healing and transformation for your own highest good and the highest good of
I have had the leisure time this past Canadian winter, while the outside world was cold and snow covered, to
indulge my fascination with the amazing story that my creative imagination shows me about my life. It has been like
considering the lists at the end of a movie of all the people involved behind the scenes in the production and
looking at what they were doing for years and months to produce the two hour long end product.
If the fifty
six years of my physical Earthwalk is akin to the two hour movie, then what a mind boggling array of energies and
beings have conspired to stage the production of my life!
I am aware of
some of them such as my ancestors, my children and their children, the power animals, the plant beings, the angelic
guides, the star people, the rock beings, the spirits of places and directions and elements and thoughtforms. I
think of what I was attracted to out of the buffet offering of possibilities laid out before me, how I was diverted
from one idea and directed just so to have a certain experience or meet someone at just such a time and place. I
think of the life times and soul times of hashing out agreements and contracts of what roles in what scripts we
were to act out so that they intersect just so. And the scenery crew setting up the vistas from Rocky Mountains to
cities to oceans to inner sanctuaries. Wow! And now, this website coming together.
And I think of
you, the visiting reader, with your own production crew of myriads of beings and energies, coming to this site to
view the vision these words are trying to convey. Simply amazing!
manfriend, Laurie, offered to build a website for me, I started to think about what it is I want to share with the
rest of the world, what has been the most interesting and unique harvest from my life's experiences. The first
obvious choosing was my communications with spirit worlds, which gift I have enjoyed all my life. My earliest
conscious memory from this lifetime is of enjoying a blissful moment. I was lying in a crib, awakening from an
afternoon nap. The lacy curtains on the window above my crib were fluttering in a mellow summer's breeze. I could
hear my mother puttering about the kitchen, singing something to herself. I was feeling so content, lying in a
cushion of unconditional love, that when she came in quietly and carefully to look in on me, I closed my eyes and
pretended to be asleep, so that she would not get me up, so that I could enjoy my blissful moment a while
It is this
unconditional love bliss state that characterizes my communications with spirit worlds. When I experience that
feeling, I know that spirit beings are present and interacting with me and the situation I am in. I recognize this
energy in others when their spirit helpers are actively engaged with them, whether they are children or street
people or preachers or bureaucrats or laborers or healers or artists or teachers or parents or fools. Universal
spirit delights in diversity and humour.
So that was an
obvious thing I am aware of that is still not recognized widely that I like to share my realizations about:
communications with spirit worlds.
As the website
idea grew and I gave more thought and energy to what my helping spirits were wanting me to do with it, and the
potential possibilities mushroomed, it came into my mind, that I would also like to share some nuggets from my
Latvian heritage. I am somewhat nervous about this because, although I spent the first eighteen years of my life
immersed in Latvian culture and the immigrant society of it in the Toronto, Canada area, I have had little on going
relationship with it since then. However I am very aware of how this childhood involvement has influenced my
further life, how my Latvian ancestors have been actively engaged with me. I have continued singing the songs of my
childhood and have been translating them into English, for my children and others who do not speak the
May you enjoy
the writings on this website, share them with people who would be interested and come visit again. There are many
more writings I will be adding as the time goes on.
