Help, I Fell off my Heels!


“The Worst Shoes for Your Feet” WebMD

Do you really thing it’s a good idea to wear those high-heeled stilettos? Oh, yeah, occasionally, maybe, depending on the condition of your back, legs, feet, ankles, balance, but regularly is just plain dumb. Do you like being able to bend your knees when sitting or stooping? Do you like being able to walk pain-free? Are you interested in developing osteoarthritis of the knees, plantar fasciitis, a tear in your Achilles tendon, or eventual deformity of your feet? No? Really?

What about if you trip and fall while crossing the street or when you step into a crack on the sidewalk? When I was a kid, the saying was, “step on a crack, you break your mother’s back!” We avoided them like the plague. But you won’t have to worry about your mother’s back, though you may have to worry about your own if you fall off those ridiculously high heels. Of course, you could luck up with a badly sprained or broken ankle that has a 50-50 chance of properly healing.

Next time you say, “I would die to have a pair of shoes like those,”  referring to high-heeled stilettos or high heels period, rethink  if they’re really worth all the trouble they can cause your body’s structure. You may not die, but you may lose your ability to walk, run, skip, and jump without great discomfort. Oh, not right away, but after continual usage, the body adjusts to being thrown off kilter and it’s not with a cute walk either. While wearing stilettos may be considered sexy and stylish, it may not be worth the long-term price you may have to pay, or the short-term, for that matter.

You do know that you can change your mind about what your find fashionable and still look fabulous? High heels can cause more problems than they’re worth and you could use the money you save not buying stilettos and put it towards your dream vacation in the Caribbean or wherever your heart desires. Remember to travel with comfortable shoes though.

Be courageous, reevaluate your view of beauty and fashion. Remember, most of those designers don’t care about how their fashion affects your health. But, you should! You’ll love me later.

Traversing Life’s Abyss, The Soul’s Alchemical Journey


As we wander through hell, we catch glimpses of Heaven. Keep your eye on Heaven and the rocky paths will be easier to navigate.

The abyss may seem foreboding, but don’t let it stop you from your growth.

Please do not send me replies worrying about me. I am an open book. When I struggle, I share it so that others can know there is a way out of the valley. I traverse valleys and know there are paths that lead out. However, those paths are not always easy to find. Sometimes we need help and want to ask for help, but others act like they’ve never traversed a valley. So, some of us  travel through alone, often taking longer than would be necessary if we had support or we never find our way out. That’s the tragedy of not recognizing ourselves in each other.

Traversing a valley, an abyss, means this, your Soul is giving you a great opportunity for growth and change. You are being invited to pull off old skin, and it can be a very painful process. Why do you think so many run from it? You see all these folks doing so much in the community and in the world, but really, they are in deep pain. They’re just wearing a mask and are afraid of traversing the abyss. So, they hide. They hide and make you feel as though you are alone in your sorrow. NO! You are in good company. This is a time of Soul awakening! It’s not personal. We’re all being tugged in some aspect of our lives, whether we admit it out loud or not.

Thirsting on the Path.

The Soulwork connected to traversing the abyss, walking through the valley allows you the opportunity to release false belief systems, useless habits and relationships. The valley has food, even if it doesn’t taste good.

I know this because I know valleys. In the past year and a half, my path has been arduous. It’s been a most humbling and revealing experience. I thought it was depression, and some of it was, but mostly, it was that I was going through great inner transformation, and was trying hard to control the process. I felt my skin coming off in front of people. I was dying, but it was an egoic death, the death of choice.  I was being made anew in the midst of intense personal and life challenges obstructing my path. The challenges came in many forms, deathsof Loved ones, great illnesses of Loved ones, financial pitfalls, and my own illness from exhaustion and need for change. I was given little time between the challenges to even catch my breath. Though I knew it was a necessity if I was to fulfill my Soul purpose here, I tried to control it, take it in small doses. Haha, that never works when the call is complete transformation.  My Soul has always been very important to me, and it was time to liberate myself from old ways of being in the world. Simply, the alchemical fire

Golden Light of Soul Alchemy

had begun and my Soul’s longing for its fullness would not be denied. It was clearly my time for tremendous growth.

Through traversing the valleys, the abysses of life, I have learned that there are clusters of light in the darkest of places. It has taken remarkable courage and patience for me to walk through, trod through, crawl through the valley, especially this time. This journey has been a deep, painful and magnificent journey for the evolution of my Soul.

Life for all of us is rapidly changing and to get through this time, our feet need to be firmly grounded in Divinity. Otherwise, we will not only misinterpret our challenges, we will succumb to them. When you traverse the abyss, when you step deeply into yourself, quiet and center yourself, you avail yourself to receive the guidance and teachings of the Masters. You are reminded of who you truly are and your purpose becomes clearer. You will realize that you are allied with others who are also traveling the path of the Soul. As soon as you make the intention to be successful in this journey, your intention harmonizes with Divine Intention, and your most urgent needs are met in ways you couldn’t have imagined.

Your Soul journey may be arduous, but you will come out aglow, liberating your soul and removing calcification around your heart that have prevented you from fully embracing your life’s potential. You will see yourself clearly, flaws and all, and Love yourself even more, because instead of being ashamed of your flaws, you realize they are necessary for your life journey. You realize that your flaws are not who you are, but what you pass through. You can still Love yourself and have flaws. They tell you what needs attention, what needs changing. They are not meant to cripple your journey, but to give you information.

Light and darkness transforming the Soul.

It’s the alchemy of the Soul to wander in darkness and find light. Finding yourself is the outcome.  “Know thy Self” and to thy own self be true. From there your compassion, Love and respect for all life will be contagious to those around you by vibration alone.

In these times of great emotional stress and turmoil, we get to learn what is truly valuable within ourselves. We get to know who we truly are and release those things that do not speak of our Divine nature. We get to know Divine Grace and become one with it.

No, this is not a path for the weak of heart, but your soul longs for this path. Like the Masters of Life, Buddha, Krishna, Yeshu‘a, known as Jesus the Christ, Mary Magdalene, Mary, Mother of Yeshu’a, and many more whose names are unknown to us, we all have our days in the desert. Let courage accompany your journey. Your heart will strengthen and your Soul will evolve. What greater gifts can you realize? The glitter of the outer world will no longer call you to respond in want, but to realize it as glitter and what is truly of value in life will no longer elude you.

This is our time, y’all. Unite in the Spirit of Divine Change and Transformation. The earth is excreting its bowels and the worst in human nature has and will continue to be revealed. Revel in Life’s beauty. We will hear awful news, and still know, we are in transformational times. The world is on evolution. The worst and the best will convergence in harmony.

We are living in a time of great and potent cleansing, and it requires patience, forgiveness and Love needed to withstand it. We are ALL in this together. We become the change we want for the world as we brave the alchemical fire that turns us into Divinity’s precious jewels. RISE EMPOWERED!

There is no is no human possession of greater importance and value than that of a transformed Soul. ~RDK

LISTEN & STRENGTHEN: The Time is NOW!


The world we will see when we awaken!
Artist: Kagaya

If I know anything, I know we are on the brink of a new world. I have seen glimpses of it. It’s indescribably delicious, lush, Loving, and heavenly harmonious. We are in the dawning of a new day, a new way. Yes, it is always darkest before the dawn. However, the “power” of darkness is fleeting. It will NOT prevail! We are not alone. How do I know? I was shown through two of the deepest visions I’d ever experienced. We went through hell and reached Heaven.

We are being purposely  bombarded with lies, travesties, injustices, and shown the worst aspects of humanity. People are afraid to open their minds and hearts and are missing the new world evolving around us. Our fears are being nourished by the violence in our daily news, in our streets, in the wars, schools, homes and in our minds. “They” are thorough in their deliverance. Even our families are dissolving in the mayhem. We’ve forgotten our children come first. We have given them models of destruction and immorality as daily food that we, too, consume. Lust, greed, jealousy, and false pride have been our main courses.  We fall for anything and will give up our most precious gifts for money or the thought of it. We are at the brink of disaster, yet, are so busy fishing for dimes, we’re missing the signs. We are creating our own demise.

Our minds are being controlled with fears of violence, disease, racial, ethnic, cultural wars and the world is being taken over by monsters who feign caring for the needs of the people when nothing could be further from what is true. We are being set up. However, we are so enthralled in the illusion,  we can’t see our way to our Divine Path.

I am writing this because we are passing through the illusion of hell and people are losing grip. This is humanity’s initiation to harmony. Do NOT lose your grip. It’s a very powerful illusion, but it is NOT where we park. It is the path we will traverse as we evolve. Great Beings are journeying with us and may be called on for help. It’s about to look bleaker than bleak, y’all. Sit in the Silent place and connect with THE ALL HOLY ONENESS. Do NOT lose connection. Strengthen this relationship. Let it be your main focus.

IT will be your Ship across tumultuous waters and your Anchor. If you have been wary about Divinity, whatever you call IT, now’s the time, now is the time, to hone in, caress your spirit, make it your focal point and hear your way through.

You don’t have to believe me, but those who know me know me know my gift, which is also my albatross, I see and am given visions. I saw 9/11, Katrina and it’s aftermath, and so much more way before their occurrences. Many of my friends argued me down until one of the things I was shown came to pass. It’s a heavy burden, at times, devastatingly so.

I don’t need you to believe me. I’m only a vehicle used to share this message. I guarantee you; I am not the only one sharing it either. For some reason, today is the day for me to do so. If you are not standing strong, firmly planted in divinity, perishing will feel like a gift. I have had this message for a while and thought sharing it would take an act of tremendous courage. Turns out, I’m wrong. Debate it, discuss it; do what you will. My mission was to share it. It’s finally done.

My sister asked why I’ve been preparing for this, I told her because I was given this vision as a child. I have always known this time would come and I would be one of the messengers. However, it’s not time for my story. This is our time, collectively, to step up the next wrung to self-actualization and evolution.

Time to step up, drop the bulls*%t and truly, humbly, Lovingly, joyfully, honestly embrace your Divinity. You may feel urges to quiet down, sit still, go within. Do so! Miss the party. Those are messages to clear yourself from the bombardment of distractions from you true Self.. It’s time now to hear our hearts and minds. The Soul is awakening from a longgg, drunken sleep.

Many people are already on this path and with great diligence. Many get this. It’s your turn: WAKE UP! You are dearly treasured. Now be that treasure and feed your being Divine Food. It is the nourishment that will carry your Soul through the mayhem imminently on our trail. Signs are everywhere. Wake up!

We are all in this together: Listen & Strengthen…

Peaceful awakenings & Immaculate Love…

HUNTERS BEWARE: OUR CHILDREN ARE OFF LIMITS!


This morning I watched a video of a 7-year-old girl who was almost abducted at a Wal-Mart in GeorgiaChild fights off would-be abductor.

It reminded me of an experience I had a couple of days before Christmas while shopping at the Fox Hills Mall in Culver City.  My granddaughter was visiting L.A., as was I, and she wanted to stretch her $40 to get a few gifts. So, my mom and niece suggested she start at the Wal-Mart located in the mall.

After I made certain the girls kept a good eye on their grandmother/great-grandmother, my plan was to sneak out and get a “Hello Kitty” bracelet made for my granddaughter without her getting a whiff of the surprise.  As I began walking from the back of the huge store to the exit, a little girl, I’ll call “Brandy,” with stringy blonde hair and the sweetest face appeared just a couple of feet from the end of the aisle. Brandy called out to me. Surprised, I continued toward her and she asked me for help.

It’s amazing when little people have the veracity and calm to approach a stranger for help and know exactly who to trust. Brandy told me that she had lost her family, but when I asked about her mother, she said she was at home. My first fear was that  she had been abandoned, but in her gibberish, I realized that Brandy had been with other family members.

Brandy quickly grabbed my hand and we started walking as I called out to the shoppers, “Small child lost! Anyone looking for their daughter?” I asked Brandy if it was alright for me to pick her up so people could see her better. (It was also better for my back.) She gave me a darling smile. Apparently, she, too, wanted to be carried.

Brandy had a remarkably calm demeanor and conversed with me like we were old friends. I was particularly touched by her comfort with me. She kept one arm gripped around my neck,  and at times placed her head on my shoulder, drawing my motherly love around her like a protective tigress.

Hearing my call to the Wal-Mart shoppers, a young male security guard walked up to us and said he’d take the child. I politely refused and could feel her relief as her grip tightened. Our bond had become special and she felt assured I’d take her to safety. I offered the guard to walk with us, guide us to the customer service, and, most importantly, to make a “lost child” store announcement. I convinced the guard, “it’s not personal, dear, but the little sweetheart chose me to help her find her family because she felt safe with me.” It was clear that I wasn’t going to release her to anyone that was not her family.

The security guard left us, but crossed paths with us again a few minutes later. Again, I requested that he make an announcement that a little child was looking to be reunited with her family. It irked me that something as simple as making a full store announcement was not the immediate response of the store security. By now, a male and female security guard were aware of the child’s dilemma, but neither had made any motion to make an announcement.

In the meantime, I heard a voice a few feet away, “Picking up strays now, are you?” Then, laughter ensued as my niece and granddaughter walked up looking amazed and amused. Little Brandy waved her hand from left to right at them both and asked, “Is this your family?” The gesture was so cute that we all burst out laughing. I managed to answer affirmatively. The three of them began a conversation, and then, my mom appeared looking bewildered. She thought I should turn the child over to the store security. We all exclaimed, “No!” That’s when Mom really saw Brandy. That darling child had engaged her, too.  A few moments later, a tattered looking young man with a boy about 5 years old spotted us.

Brandy’s wide smile was indication enough to let us know that they were her family. Still holding on to me like I was her dear friend, she cheered, “That’s my daddy!” It took her a second to let me go, as she thanked me with a squeeze. I handed her over to her worried-looking father. With a look of embarrassment and relief, he thanked me profusely.

Mom, the quintessential grandmother and great-grandmother walked over to Brandy’s father and had a grandmotherly chat with him. As we were leaving Wal-Mart, we asked her what she told him.  Mom shared, with raised brow, that Brandy and her brother had been allowed to play hide ‘n’ seek under the clothing racks  (something her children would have never been allowed to do, by the way) when Brandy got lost. Mom’s wise words to the father were, “This is not the climate to leave your children unattended, even for a moment.” He seemed to digest her words well and with appreciation. We were all glad it turned out so gracefully.

My best advice for a parent is that you teach your children good survival skills while keeping them prayed up. Watch them with a hawk’s eye, as much as you are able. That 7-year-old who was almost kidnapped fortunately got away. It’s often not the case. Keep your little ones close to you, especially  when you are in places where they can easily become lost or get snatched. The beasts who steal children are hunters and have the patience of hunters.

Build a trustworthy network. Your children are worth every moment of your time. Above all treat your children with love and respect. They grow up faster than you can imagine.

WAKE-UP, CHILD!

Sleep for five to eight hours and then,

Look around you,

See the love and support that has remained with your

Through all of your difficult encounters.

No matter where you have roamed or what you have done,

You have always remained loved and support.

What have you given back to those who have NEVER forsaken you?

Love, complaints, a helpful hand, lies, excuses?

Yes, you have changed your program, but was it by choice or did it

Prove to be the wrong path for one as gifted as yourself?

WAKE UP, CHILD!

Time moves on and waits for no one!

Be not the fool, the dog who barks at the flying bird.

This is your time. Use it well and it will be kind to you later.

Misuse it and you will be constantly reminded, embittered by the waste.

You have left a messy trail.

It led you to the streets and then to jail.

Achievement in school remains the best way forward.

Education is priceless. If you don’t believe me, try living without it.

Plant the seed now and later the harvest will feed you.

Work hard NOW and the benefits will surprise you.

No matter what you think, NO ONE owes you.

You owe yourself, more than you’ve been willing to admit.

So OWN yourself!

WAKE UP, CHILD!

Stop acting the fool, do well in school.

Be thankful you have a home, the streets are no where to roam.

WAKE UP, CHILD!

This is YOUR life!

Stop spitting on the hands that feed you.

Be loyal to your family.

Look nowhere but within.

Be true to yourself.

No more lies, inside or out!

The truth will set you FREE!

Clean up your trail! No more running! Check out your mind!

WAKE UP, CHILD!

The clock is ticking, ticking, ticking!

It’s about you! What will YOU do for YOU!

C’MON NOW, WAKE UP, CHILD!
