“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths.”
Just as the sky reflections are mirrored in the water, our perception of knowing is being reflected back to us in order to question our integrity. As no two sunsets are the same, we are being asked to move beyond our familiar ways of thinking on the linear plane and move into a multi-dimensional existence. In order to take these new quantum leaps of faith, our familiar way of doing things is being asked to transform every day. This means that how we may do something one day will not be the same as the next. As our whole world is changing and evolving so rapidly, so will our response one day will be different from the next. This is not to be termed as being inconsistent. However, it is learning how to soar from one experience to the next as life is no longer linear in living, thinking and actions; we are now living in a circular multi-level existence, where timelines are occurring simultaneously.
“God will supply all of your needs according to his riches in glory.”
Like the various hues and reflections in the evening sky at Highland Lake, the peace of God washes over your soul. Timelessness is evident in the ever-changing weather patterns, color configurations within the sky, smoothness to waves of the lake and season changes from the trees. Time stands still in enormous pockets of peaceful awareness as the vibration and energy present speaks volumes to the depths of ones body, mind and soul. Feeling connected to the magical wonder of the lake, she speaks ever so softly to a place deep within about inner tranquility only apparent when one quiets the mind and listens with the heart.
“Whoever knocks persistently, ends by entering.”
And so I speak about the miraculous beauty surrounding us and ask that these precious moments we are so blessed to experience be treasured in our hearts now and always. For by asking you receive and by receiving you may find and by knocking the door will be opened up to you, when it is time. Timing, that is, and patience are the final factors necessary in creating miracles. You must be still and they will appear everywhere! And so it is.
“Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it.”
“You can develop good judgement as you do the muscles of your body – by judicious, daily exercise.”
My favorite reference book is Roget’s Thesaurus for the various meanings behind the proper usage of words. Under the word judgement are five separate meanings!
Through our lives lessons we learn to access intellectually the power of sound judgement in arriving to conclusions in decision-making in our lives.
The use of discernment in terms of discriminating what serves the highest and best for all concerned is utilizing another aspect of sound judgement in our lives. This can also be used towards spiritual discernment.
Our freedom and power of choice comes into play when we are calling upon utilizing out tool set in making decisions based on judgement.
Criticizing and lower vibrational fear based thinking is involved in condemning others acts, beliefs and behaviors without compassion when judgement is used in this context.
And then there is the legal system associated with controlling and manipulating others in sentencing them due to the judgement ascertained upon their actions.
“I love when things are transparent, free and clear of all inhibition and judgement.”
It became apparent to me this morning that the summons I recently received to serve on jury duty placed me in an awkward state of mind. Who am I to pass judgement on someone else? Have I lived their life, was I raised in their environment, have I experienced the social, moral, mental, spiritual and emotional influences that they have had and walked a mile in their shoes? And even then, who am I to judge? The log in my eye requires much more attention than the speck in my brother or sister’s eye.
“Let the refining and improving of your own life keep you so busy that you have little time to criticize others.”
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
It also became apparent to me when someone commented on something inadvertently directed towards me, it made me dig deeper in questioning myself to find the meaning to the feelings which were conjured up within me.
We all know that we are not to take things personally, yet there was a hidden message in what was said that made me “chew” on the concepts as I kept asking for a deeper understanding as to be clear about the message this messenger brought to me.
“Judge not lest you be judged. For with the judgement you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?”
Worthiness and self-love are core issues of the heart which are oftentimes disregarded in our early growth and learning process which eventually catches up to us.
“What is not fully exposed earlier in life is revealed and made up for in development.”
So the truth of the emotionally charged comment revealed an insightful level of understanding for me that was two-fold. First and foremost, when someone is unfairly judged, they unconsciously direct that towards others. Secondly, by it “affecting” me, it shows that I still have more inner self-healing to work on in that area of my life. It’s always about the refining and improving of yourself on this personal path of enlightenment, as all messages are a present to open and reveal the gift of inner growth.
So I am forever grateful for this message, for it has revealed a much deeper appreciation of conscious awareness towards others as well as teaching me what is most important in taking care of myself. It all comes down to compassion, unconditional love and forgiveness.
“Circumstances and situations do color life but you have been given the mind to choose what the color shall be.”
John Homer Miller
The conclusion to my summons? It is clear that I will most probably not be selected for jury duty as it is not for me to judge – it is, however, essential to be compassionate towards all as our life is a journey of the heart.
On a glorious fall afternoon driving through the Catskills in New York, the energy was so brilliant from the array of colorful foliage to the perfect temperature as I felt an awareness of indescribable loving excitement present in the air. Then I had to stop the car and take as many photographs as possible. I couldn’t “see” anything, but I “knew” that the camera would be able to pick up on the higher vibrations. Just like animals have a heightened awareness of perception, we are becoming attuned to “hear” and “know” in our process of evolving.
“We step into nature, Our hearts open wide, We see all before us, Of all that’s inside.
Above and below us, Reflected around, In treetops and water, God’s love is abound.”

As some of you know, I survived a car accident, which gifted me the opportunity to a glimpse of crossing over (NDE) while I was in a coma. It’s the chances that you don’t take which make one complacent, as home is blissful, surreal, saturation of rapturous, joyous, unconditional Love. Promise yourself to stretch your comfort zone every day, this could be your only today, so make it the most meaningful experience of your life!
“Would you think that for a moment, planning actually matters? Spiritual unfoldment occurs unbeknownst to us.”

Connie Andrea Marchell
“The Universe adores us, in blissful moments of present awareness; Fully aware of its magnitude, it’s peacefulness remains still.”
“Oh the novelty of orgasmic colors bring forth the climatic finale; Autumn reveals her full glory in timeless beauty.”
Then God Said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit and seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was good.
“The union of Gaia with the glorious hills and trees; Mirrors the relationship of soul mate and twin flame.”
“Would dancing leaves and whispering trees be glimpses of an angelic autumn breeze?”
Connie Andrea Marchell
“Are angels floating upon the clouds, watching intently over us unawares? “
“Sacred union occurs when the inner work reveals all that is balanced; An equilibrium of the yin and yang energies.”
“…But when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away…”
1 Corinthians 13
And God Said “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day” and the darkness he called “night,” And there was evening and morning – THE FIRST DAY…
Infinite gratitude to the beauty of our surroundings, of friends and family with heartfelt thankfulness for their generosity from the heart! May our focus on all the wonder and expansive glory surrounding us and the miraculous gift of the breath of life within us be ever kept in present moment appreciative awareness!

A non profit animal sanctuary and rescue, devoted to caring for all animals large and small, many of which have been left abandoned, neglected and abused. Our saying here is, “They may be old, sick or disabled, but their lives matter too.”
“Synchronicity is always on the move, and is dynamic. depending on how often you listen to intuitive potentials that are given to you. There will always be people for you to meet. There are always good things available. Synchronicity is a benevolent energy that is designed to help you.”
Kryon, Book 14 “The New Human: The Evolution of Humanity
As a charm of birds flew together in unison yesterday afternoon swaying with the wind, their surreal chorus brought me right back to the day that a similar gathering of birds embodied the same sound to the core of my soul. The last time that feeling occurred was the evening I went to say good bye to Grandma Marge as she prepared for your transitional journey of the soul. Sure enough, after the birds embarked on their flight, I looked over to the western sky to behold a crystalline sun dog beaming boldly in the sky! Grandma Marge had referred to me as her rainbow, and somehow this prism of light waves had brought her “NOW’ loving spirit rushing back into my life! What a glorious and amorous feeling to welcome her loving presence into my heart!
“That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
2 Corinthians 12:10
In the wavelengths and prisms of crystalline vapor trails in the sky, the bending of the path of light or sound passes through between dimensions to reveal various mediums with different characteristics encompassing all of our senses. These “weaknesses” in the angularity of radiant light manifest brilliant variations of colorful light and sound. It is symbolic to the twelve strands of DNA within our own human structure and how they connect quantumly to Gaia. Kryon speaks about this in moving the Kundalini energy and our relationship with Mother Earth in the procreation of wisdom on the planet. We are on a journey of discovering the potential elegance of what our DNA really can do for us!
“Blessed is the Human Being who feels they are part of this compassionate change on the planet.”
Kryon, Book 14 “The New Human: The Evolution of Humanity
“Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of Eternal Life.”
There are many “spiritual bouquets” that remind me of Grandma Marge, with PINK being her trademark signature in everything that she touches. The above scripture was her favorite for she understood the vastness of our spiritual life. Isn’t it interesting that her daughter Connie’s (my mom) signature color is YELLOW and together they symbolize UNIVERSAL LOVE and HAPPINESS. Perfect messages from two spiritually active angelic essences doing all that they can to shift this energy to LOVE BEING THE FIRST RESPONSE. No longer are we giving energy to the fear based old stories. We are being given a gift on August 21, 2017 with the Solar Eclipse bringing in the 2,000 year cycle of Aquarius. (Yes, I am Aquarius).* The essential message that we are here to convey to all of you is that the pain and sorrow and poverty consciousness thinking is an old, worn out paradigm which no long will have any power after the Solar Eclipse which will be bringing in a whole new paradigm of existence. Christ Consciousness, Love being all that there is. The new thought process is that of conscious awareness utilizing the pineal and dropping our intellectualism into the heart for compassionate living with all humanity!
In Perpetual Memory of Connie and Grandma Marge (Aries and Pisces)*
“And when the storm comes, and the mighty wind shakes the forest, and thunder and lightning proclaim the majesty of the sky – then let your heart say in awe, “God moves in passion.”
Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
A remarkable storm came through during the night which produced a brilliant lightning and thunder orchestrated display. Mother Gaia marvels us continually through her ever-changing display of colorful radiance and rumbling staccato statements of empowerment. She is to be honored for her magnitude of infinite manifesting and creative abilities, extraordinary resilience and timeless moments of grandeur!
“Every shower and dew, bless the Lord; praise and exalt Him above all forever. Dew and rain, bless the Lord; praise and exalt Him above all forever. Light and darkness, bless the Lord; praise and exalt Him above all forever. Lightning and clouds, bless the Lord; praise and exalt Him above all forever.”
Daniel 3:64; 68; 72-73
And so it is with our lives, we experience moments of great joy and depths of painful sorrow. Two emotions on opposite ends of the same vibrant spectrum. By facing tragedies in our lives head-on, this produces courage and integrity of character. Through this deep inner work, it allows for the heights of joyous rapture to be experienced soaring us to new heights. Maybe that is why we are so drawn to the beauty of nature in all of its wonder and glory, for it reflects back to us our own inner journey of the heart.
“Therefore let your soul exalt your reason to the height of passion, that it may sing.”
Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
It is during these times of sublime lucidity while observing an incoming storm, that the creative spirit within is ignited with ecstasy; just as that surreal mesmerizing gaze into a fire which seems to transport you to another place and time. There are these uncanny connections which appear to bring serendipity into our lives, similar to the weather in their arrival; on their own time, in their own way and on their own terms – as if these magical moments were actually cued to appear in our lives when least expected. Such then our lives are like the weather, to be embraced in the present moment of awareness or relinquished forever. Therefore, be mindful and fully, consciously aware to experience the great vastness and expansiveness of the infinite drenching of the soul.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your paths.”
During these most cleansing of times, our society is being brought to a place of recognizing that which is most important and that which must fade away. This is beyond our human understanding, which is the necessity of relying on our heart-centered inner knowing awareness, focusing on that which is unseen but known within the heart and built upon a firm foundation of rock. There is no fence-siting in these spiritually expansive times of our evolution. Great spiritual discernment of our truth is paramount in remaining diligent in our convictions and relying on our collective resources as meeting our infinite intentions.
“Sometimes God allows our hearts to be broken so that he can beautify our souls.”
Connie A. Mitchell Marchell
Like in the times of Moses, we as a light working community are being called to do our work without straw, as it were. We possess the answers and solutions within ourselves and are being asked to collaborate and work together in building our new foundation which is a value system based on our ability to love and forgive one another. That’s it. So we must dig our heels deeply into Mother Gaia and root ourselves in the highest healing vibrating frequency known in the galaxies – LOVE!!! I cannot emphasize the sheer importance of this one concept enough!
“Watch for the darkness to fight you like never before, and watch for The Field of harmony to invade everything. It’s almost like the beauty of Mother Nature is starting to affect humanity as well. The Field will try to create symbiotic systems that work together with compassion and beauty. It’s going to change Human nature and we’ve said that before as well. Hang in there, old soul, and expect good things no matter what you see or expected in the past.”

August 2016 in Anchorage, AK
Some of you have read my encounter with a glimpse to the spiritual side in my previous posting about my Near Death Experience. I must once again re-emphasize the surreal, saturation and healing intoxicating powerfully mesmerizing magnitude of this most powerful energy of LOVE!!! In my brief 3 day heavenly encounter, it radiated from all the air, the sun, the trees, the garden, the butterflies, the flowers, my grandparents – all telepathic, all knowing, all loving, all embracing, all present – the gift of LOVE is ours and we must concentrate and focus on this most essential ingredient as a collective force in transmuting these old fear based stories, re-runs as it were, attempting to pull us back into the dark ages of lies, deception and untruths.
“But if it is of God, you will not be able to stop them, lest you find yourselves fighting against God.”
We chose to be here during this great time of manifesting and creating something new, fresh, pure and infinite! Let us all come boldly unto that throne of grace and find assistance in this time of need as we are one body with many parts and able to work together in crashing down these old fear based responses to reveal a new order: Let our first response be based on LOVE!!!
“The transcendental state of Being lies beyond all seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, and tasting – beyond all thinking and beyond all feeling.”
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
There are sacred moments in time where all the senses are so attuned that you feel saturated in the love of the Universe! It is places like Highland Lake which have brought that sense of awareness in timelessness. Prior to having internet and cell service there, it seemed to magically bring you to a place of peacefulness, wonderment and awe as moments seemed to span lifetimes!
There is a glorious Willow Tree named “The Lady of the Lake” whose graceful limbs with lacey leaves reach towards the heavens! Her hour glass womanly figure-shaped trunk has weathered many a winter’s wind and basked in the summer’s vibrant glory! An earlier limb was used for children to swing out into the lake as they would splash cheerfully into the water! Through the years, she had to relinquish this part of herself to the past, full of memories of her lifetime!
On the pathway walking around Highland Lake there is a stoic moss covered tree known as “The Lord of the Forest” whose stately presence breathes embodiment to all of nature.
Further along the pathway around the lake, there is a section where the stream and pond flow out into the lake. Oftentimes you will see turtles and bullfrogs, together with dragonflies and you may even encounter a fairy or two!
As you continue along the pathway, the senses of sight, taste, smell, hearing, feeling and knowing are awakened in the freshness of the fragrant, soothing air. It is moments like this which span our awareness of time and we become one with all that is around us and within us. This bliss full state of consciousness allows for incredible insights as the mind drops into sacred heart-centered alignment and inner knowing. You may see a spiritual rainbow cone, or even an orb or two!
Peaceful mornings and throughout the day, the lake transforms her appearance into something new! There is much to be learned from her deep lesson of inner knowing.
Cloud formations pass throughout the day, bringing colorful rainbows, angelic wisps of glistening crystals, as the sunlight reflects brilliantly off the textured glassy water.
And so after a splendid sunset, the campfires begin to emerge surrounding the water’s edge. Oftentimes, the fireflies will gather around the sloping hills as the crickets and peepers and tree frogs begin their harmonic evening melodies which accompany the sparkling starts lighting up the gradually darkening vast evening sky.
Sunfish Sailboats sport around Highland Lake with moments of gusty winds and other peaceful doldrums. There is a gentleman who has configured a way to sail his rainbow colored sailboat around the lake using just the one arm that he has – remarkable the ingenuity of the power of invention, determination and necessity!
Then there is the early morning choir of birds singing, as the stillness of the morning air and water invigorates the soul. Timelessness revisited.
Various boating activities and music festivals as well as floatilla competition are just some of the many activities at Highland Lake. Not to mention the fireworks! They simply begin on the Fourth of July weekend and continue throughout the season!
And so our lives are to be lived to their fullest, richest, reaching for the stars, pressed down and flowing over! As my Mom would say, “Keep Joy in your life, Jesus wants it that way!” and as Grandma Marge would say, “Happy, Happy, Happy!!! Joy, Joy, Joy!!!”
“Rejoice in the Lord always! And again I say, rejoice!”
I so love when there are visual confirmations to share with others about the intense love being radiated to us from the spiritual realms! Notice the seven red hearts floating over the trees together with the prism of rainbow light flowing in both directions from the white sun. The energy and color of the sun has amplified to white crystalline light as we continue to resonate at a higher awareness. Finally, notice the blurry white in the center of the light post between the trees which extends out to a red pathway on the grass. Exciting to share these glimpses of the intense love and light that is our gift – it is who we are!
A few weeks later, the hearts appeared again in my backyard on the Crimson King Maple that I had planted in my Father’s memory – interesting that there are two red hearts this time – Mom and Dad. My cat, Jaco, seems to have a gold orb on his cheek and above his head is a light pink orb, which is Grandma’s color of choice! So, even though these are simple visual confirmations to me personally, I feel compelled to share them as Spirit is calling us to be aware of the love all around us, enveloping us, within us, surrounding us and speaking to us in rainbow frequencies and light codes as we continue to become clear and open to all.
