Here is a bit more about Barbara:

“Barbara Hofmeister is a refugee from Communist Germany and knows first hand what it is like to be living in adverse circumstances. Severely abused and with low self-esteem she set out to live her personal dream traveling the world sharing what she learned from her intense studies and the “University of Hard Knocks” with a wide audience.

Barbara became involved in her own personal development in 1978 when a friend gave her a book by Dr. Wayne Dyer and she has not stopped since to further her knowledge on the topic.

Greetings and Salutations! One and All! I do hope that the week has been good for you so far!

Today I want to talk about the coming of a new day!

For those of us who are awake or partially awake, it has become difficult to navigate the energies and most of us have done beautifully!

It seems that the heaviness of these purges are going to kill us or make us want to kill ourselves.  It is in these moments when all of the tools you have been given throughout your lifetime have to be pulled from the magic bag of tricks.  When the world is falling apart around you for no apparently good reason that we turn to the one thing that can and will help. Our Creator.

I believe that in most cases we bring things to ourselves for our own growth and expansion, but too there have been times when I have been placed in very surreal experiences that had absolutely nothing to do with me but more to do with the people who had been placed in my life. In some instances that meant soul retrieval and soul rescue for those who had been captured in time and space and replaced with some other entity or entities controlling the body. Similar to a possession. Some would say this is time for me to be put into a looney bin and others quietly understand what it is I am talking about.

My life has taken me to the very lowest of lows being in the streets with the bums and the crazy folk, but it was there too that some of my brightest angels on earth were found and helped me navigate that reality so that I could survive. I have been what society would consider a success as well, making money hand over fist but not being responsible with it, not using it to help others. So it was taken away from me almost over night. I was then put in the streets with two children. I have lost it all and rebuilt it over 7 times so far in my life.  I am thankful for the good and the bad, even though in my human moments I have great difficulty in seeing those times as good things. I am still learning to not judge things including my own actions or the actions of others. I am learning to release the need for expectation and entitlement. Similar to the story of JOB in the christian teachings, the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, all is always for our highest good and we should be grateful for it all good and bad for if it was not for that Creator we would not exist. I believe that no matter the adversity that we endure in our lifetime, it is forgotten on the other side. What is left is the expanded consciousness and deeper love.

So it comes down to FAITH. Finding Answers In The Heart. For it is there in the heart where our creator, high self, guides, other aspects of ourselves in other realities I think they call them dopplegangers it all begins in that place in the heart that we hear them, feel them, experience or re-experience them. I would not allow the bird to go without food or shelter, why would you think I would want less for you? I know that my needs will be met. I know that the universe and that being I call God, loves me beyond any love any human being could possibly express. I have been with Him. I have felt him within me, my body mind and soul. I will only ever ultimately trust that being that resides in all things. People ask well what religion are you? I tell them I am all and none of them. They look at me like I am crazy. But I remember a time when this planet was still new when there was only ONE and nothing more. We all worked in harmony and loved our creations. Delighted in what we could create and did it with joy and love. The planet that I remember had love as it’s main frequency. Not to say that this planet is different, but certainly the frequencies are.

I have faith, even though I find myself in circumstances which would send the average person into a complete and total depression, even in my sadness I give thanks that the solutions be brought forth with ease and grace, and that it is perfect in all ways for all concerned and the good of all in general. I have FAITH that it will all work out just as it is supposed to for even if it is not what I may want or THINK is the right thing, I KNOW that the universe has got my back no matter what set of circumstances I find myself in. In a weird way there is peace in knowing that I still have to do my part but that the universe is there like a full orchestra to back me up on that stage of life.

Yes when it rains it pours, but bust out your seeds and water barrels and capture the moment and grow something beautiful when a new day dawns! Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death….he leadeth me to green pastures and cool waters….we all have to walk through that valley several hundred times in our lives. We choose to sit and have a picnic and camp out there, it’s like my son’s vice principal said to my son this morning, “There are two words which both begin with VIC…. do you know what those words are? Victim or Victor, which are you going to be? A victim who does nothing and takes apathy as their route in life and does nothing to move up or forward or you can be the Victor and walk through it and just do it!”  Words of wisdom from a woman who’s job was just cut because of budget cuts. She moved her whole family from Washington to Colorado and they cut her job! Inspirational coming from her. A great woman, mother and administrator, the district has their head on backwards for eliminating her position.

So as children or as adults, we all have those moments when life throws us a curve ball, if you are paying attention you can turn that into a grand slam or you can get hit in the head and wonder what happened.

I do all I can to help the universe make my life the greatest it can be, and people say even with all that you go through you always land on your feet and you always maintain a positive attitude. It is said that when we smile it releases serotonin and gives us a better outlook, so the fake it til you make it does work on a chemical level. I choose to be a VICTOR not a VICTIM to life or circumstance or people. I will walk through this valley and lay down by the cool waters. It is in the lack of acceptance that we suffer. The sooner we accept it the sooner we can stop asking why and ask instead what is the solution, what am I going to do with this? Ask and if you get no answer then trust that it is not time yet, the universe has not lined the perfect scenario up for you, you do your part, look for that job, go to school, be doing what you CAN in the moment, if there is nothing you can do more or do about another’s decision or a company going under, then do what you can …. clear your space, clear your thinking whatever that entails. Sometimes doing NOTHING is the answer. The universe wants you to rest and heal your body or spirit. The wisdom of silence. Saying nothing, walking away is the answer sometimes. No matter how much it hurts. It will be better. It has to, for as bad as things get there is always a rainbow after the storm, there is always a flower that blooms from the muddied grounds.

These are times of great change. We must be able to ride the waves and not let them crush us. Even in stormy waters and it feels like the gasps are fewer and further between. You become a stronger swimmer. Ride the waves as best you can, lean on each other and support one another for it is difficult for all, but we can bring it in with ease and grace by showing that to each other. Remember always what you put out you get back. Break things down to the core issues and not the symptoms. People react out of fear, what is the fear, address it. What can you do about it, what steps can you take to change it or make it different? You can do whatever you want to do, but it takes baby steps in that general direction to get there.

This time is about personality clean up and changing of perspectives, and the cool thing about that is that each new day brings a new opportunity for happiness and joy. Each new day gives us the chance to help another. Each new day we get to learn something new. Each new day we have the chance to laugh and smile.  There is a coming of a new day for you and I. Leave tomorrow for tomorrow. Do not let fear stop you from achieving your happiness. It serves no one and is a waste of the gift of life. Life is all about the Love. Happiness. Joy. Serenity. Peace.

Life is short. It can end or change in a split second. Don’t waste it. Fix it. Make it right. Love is all that matters. The great thing about it is you can do that right NOW, this second. Change your mind. Do something different. Don’t try, just do it. Because you can you know. It’s not that hard once you take the steps. Today is the new day! Right now! Right here! This moment! Make it count, make it memorable, make it great! If everyone is flipping out around you , that is their problem you can still be joyful with you. Pray that they too will come around and come back to you, for miracles never cease. Strange things happen in strange times. Love always finds it’s way back to itself. So do not look at the loss, look what you have, give thanks. Keep the faith, do your best to not panic and go to the other side of the valley. God takes care of us, we are all worthy and deserving of love from Him and each other. Let those who cannot do that go. Until they can stop thinking of themselves and begin to think of others as well. Do YOU! Do what YOU can and leave the rest to God. You will see that if you surrender it, it will work out ok. Promise. But you have to leave it there. Because every time you worry about it or think about it, you are taking it back and have to give it up again. So say thank you for you know its done.

Have a grand weekend everyone! I love you all !!! You make the journey fun!

Love n Light in Oneness of Heart,

Greetings and Salutations One and All. Today, I want to address something which has become a prevalent theme across the world today. FEAR.

This is a dis ease which affects every single human being and being period upon this planet. Many if not all of the negative or lower vibrational emotions stem from this very simple yet complex word.

What I am witnessing in my lifetime, just blows my mind. I have always known there were those pockets of human beings which saw things through hateful eyes and be so righteous and justified in their reasons for being that way.

Through the eyes of a child….perhaps this is the way that I see things. Because to me, there are no borders, there is no separation from my brother across the ocean to the sister on the other side of the globe. We all on at least a primal level operate the same way. Ultimately in our perceptions we do as well. Those who hate Americans because we are presumptuous and spoiled and arrogant, yet americans would say the same of the French! What is up with this concept of separation?

We have come to a new extreme of that concept which is driven completely by fear! Really people, let’s get real about this particular reality! One no one wants to admit or look at or deal with. We have forgotten tolerance and brotherhood. It’s all about ME and what’s in it for ME? Where have we come to with this idea that we are ENTITLED to anything! On any level?! Wow! I am so totally blown away by that fear that it makes my head spin and I sit on my blog trying to figure it out because in my vibration and reality I just do not operate on that same note at all.Apathy is the opposite of empathy. Our empathy is what drives us, so where can we find a happy medium?? Where is the center of both extremes. Be grown up enough to compromise and realize that we all have the right to contribute. We all have the responsibility to contribute. WE all have to work, share the load, offer our gifts, now some say this is socialism, well we are social beings. I suppose in that sense we are, but I would prefer to see this as communal living. We co exist on the same planet why not work together instead of tearing each other down in a fight for imagined control? What is up with that?

The more I evolve the more I realize that we must come from a place of love not fear. The reality that I create for myself is one of love not fear. One of abundance not lack. I choose to create a new reality for myself that is more in alignment with my current vibration because I cannot function in that lower way of thinking any longer.

Now I have come to a new cross roads, that is finding people who resonate with that idea. That it’s not all about the positive because in the law of opposites we will get the opposite effect if we push it away it will come back. If we acknowledge its existence and allow it to pass through us with love ahhh now there is the trick! Finding the balance in the idea of duality. We all know you cannot have dark without light, up without a down, we require the contrasts to experience both angles of life or the experience of life in the physical reality.

Problem is we are sucked up into those roles.Our egos and mental bodies thrive on that stuff and the drama that is created! We LOVE drama! It would be so ultimately boring if we didn’t have those extremes.

When I look at the world I see beauty all around me. I see love in the mother’s with their children or the act of kindness to an elderly person. I see people who really want unity and working to help their fellow man, even if it’s just in their own neighborhoods. So much so that I put the what’s good in the news tonight segment on my show. That what we focus on is what we create.I accept that I am in the world and have to deal with many realities, but I do not have to be of it and participate entirely with it. I can watch from the outside and enjoy the show. I look past all of it and try to see what IS, not how I see it. This is part of the trick of staying in the moment. Not easy I know. We want to fall into that deep groove on a broken record. We have to let go of that old programming. Or I can participate but with the intent of love and doing things for the highest good of all concerned. Because sometimes bad things have to happen to make way for the new …. that is just a fact of life in duality. If we didn’t know the sorrow, the joy would not be as sweet.

If we are all complaining that we do not like this or that, or this idea will never work, then put in your two cents! See if you can pursuade others to see your solution as the best for all concerned. To sit there and complain constantly is only going to prolong the change process. Get your blood pressure up and solve absolutely nothing. Put out hate, it’s what you are going to get back! Stop fighting the changes and start being a part of the solution!Stop pointing fingers and look at the three pointing back to who? YOU! Look at why are you are so reactive! What are you really afraid of ? Why does this make you mad? What SOLUTION can be offered to make it work?

Choose to come from love, compassion, “how would I feel if I were on the other side?” If this is the foundation that has been laid, how can we make this work? Pointing fingers and blaming and being mad because you do not want this change is futile.There is a change coming, it is the way of the universe. This time is done and it is a time for unification and working together and remembering that Creator is the greatest force of all, that even when we think that it’s the end of the line, a miracle occurs and it’s all changed in one moment. That is how life is, even when we think or feel that things are disasterous, something amazing happens and things do not work out as badly as they could have.

We have the responsibility my brothers and sisters to write our future for our children and children’s children. We have been given the ultimate in responsibility. To write the prophesies of our future fathers. We are the foot prints they will follow. How do we want that picture to look really? With squabbling and control games? Fear and hate? or do we want them to live in peace and cooperation and tolerance? If thats what we want for them then we need to start looking at how we are really really treating others and seeing our world around us.

If we are still seeing the world as us and them then we are still stuck in the old programming and ways of thinking and are not looking at a very happy future there. The frequencies will not withstand that. So you have to choose, now, fear or love? There is no happy grey areas n this final act. It’s one or the other, and from a state of love, we just allow things to be what they are and trust the universe has things under control and we will get precisely what we ask for. Because the universe has no concept of time or good or bad it simply doesnt exist on the other side that way.

We are coming into a new reality and it starts with the one in the mirror. We have to be able to objectively look at our good and bad sides and thoughts. Do our best to recognize what is and what is a programmed response.

We are so programmed to live in fear. Unplug from it and be Neo and think for yourself. Listen to your heart where we all beat with one heart.

Stop the hate. Do your best to spread the love. Speak your truth, but do not force it. Agree to disagree for we are not all the same. We have different perspectives based on our own personal walk and experience of this lifetime. We are all unique, all have a story to tell. And if you are smart, then you will listen with an open ear, mind and heart and embrace the differences and learn from those experiences rather then shoot them down and call them names and try to destroy them to control them or to change their thinking! None of us have that right. We are no one to judge a sister or brother unless we have walked their path and seen it through their eyes from start to finish. Their experience is their own. Yours is your own. To them their positions and choices are right based on their perceptions , to you, it may not be the same because that didn’t work for you because you are different. So what ? So now because I cannot communicate with you I should hat you and force you to learn my way or go away? Who do we think we are? Wow! Power , greed, control or lack thereof all of it FEAR. Fear that someone has more then us. Fear they will gain control over us if…Wow!

That is what needs to stop. That thinking. We have to change that picture. Thats my brothers and sisters from the other parts of the world. Welcome them and teach them love. Even if they are naive and young and do not know better still be true to yourself and choose love. It’s a much better place to be. A state of love.

People think that this is idealistic thinking and perhaps to them that is right. To me it is a partial solution. What do you have to offer as a parital solution that is in fairness to all without judgment or control or fear?

Things to ponder and muse upon. What do you choose? Does what you would want to choose and what is line up? If you are not a hypocrit, stop behaving like one! If you are about unity then encourage that in the proper manner, with balance and love and divine guidance. Love thy brother as thyself. If he slaps your face offer the other cheek, if he steals your coat then offer your shirt. The ones who act out the hardest need the most love. To engage and argue only perpetuates the issues, so just let them be. Let them think what they want. It’s theirs their thoughts and they are not yours. If it doesnt resonate leave it. We do not alway have to agree, but we do always have to respect another beings right to be. Right to live and learn and grow. We would get along alot better if we saw things this way. Our country your country, our people your people, the perverbial “us” and “them” or “right” and “wrong” . By whose standards? Gods? because HIS are the only ones that matter.

That’s how I see things. I can only shake my head at my brothers and sisters when they spew hate and loathing for a president who inherited a mess to clean up and begin the winds of change long over due. You may not agree with all that is going on …. but I for one commend them for at least trying! OK so it may not be right the first round, but it can be tightened up to work! How can we fine tune it to make it work ? How can we work together to achieve peace and harmony on Earth?

Hugs to all, much love n light in oneness of heart!

Greetings and Salutations One and All! Today I would like to discuss mindfullness. “What is that?” I’m sure you are asking yourself. Well in my definition, it is being absolutely present within the moment. Most people might think that they are truly in the moment most of the time, but if you really pay attention a lot of the time we are not in the present moment. We are in the future, past, lost in thought. Most of us check in and out of the present most of the time.

Spirit has really been on me about this particular issue of late, and I am sure that I am not alone.  What it means to not just know it but to own it and walk it and intergrate it into your everyday life. I was recently faced with a situation as most of you know, where in I had to come to a place of radical acceptance of another person’s decision. A betrayal, and several losses within a very short period of time. I shared with all of you some of the processes that I used during this time period. One of the things that I have found is that it is not so easy to stay in the present when chaos is surrounding every aspect of your life.

So I am coming to you now, having been exposed to some great new information from Sue Piver, who wrote the book, “The Wisdom of a Broken Heart” and Dee Wallace, who wrote the book, ” Conscious Creation” and from several other great books that are out there right now on the topic of changing our thinking. For what we focus on we bring to ourselves and we are creators that have the ability to change what our reality looks like. How we see things and perceive things has everything to do with that. These two dynamic ladies have come up with some fantastic hands on ideas on how to overcome the challenging emotional states we all get to at some point in our lives.  I have been using their techniques within my own personal life and I will tell you I have been astonished at how well it has worked for me.

I have invited them both to be guests on the show, and hopefully they will graciously accept. I can only tell you that it would be a complete blessing to all of you if they did. Truly amazing beings! Amazing books! Amazing results!

I have recently been attending DBT technique training and it is so interesting that some of the very techniques they are teaching for psychology now have their same roots as these two books. Funny how the universe works, especially when a message is loud and clear. The techniques help you to cope with strong emotions and emotional responses. It helps to reprogram the old programming from your earlier years and all up to now. You become self empowered to see how these very simple and quick techniques can change your entire perspective about life and the people in it when you begin to do the homework!

I challenge you all to the next time you feel in a moment of emotional overload, find simply 20 things in the room around you. Take notice of them and what about them caught your awareness. What you are doing by doing this is taking yourself out of emotion and into your mental bodies. If you begin to note where in your body your are feeling the discomfort and address the fears at the core of the emotion you can allow these emotions to pass through you without stuffing them.

The idea is to become aware of wha tis actually happening around you when you get to these crisis moments in life. Stop and notice what is around you, what is going on. Most times there is nothing going on. Whether you are in your car or a room, there is not usually alot going on when we are having these momentary melt downs. You begin to become aware of right now. Usually the emotion is coming from a past memory or a thought of what could be but it is not right now. This moment. As you begin to do this, catch yourself when you are on the phone or talking to your kids, see how much time you are really being present in this moment, versus, being in thoughts like, “I have this, this and this to do ….” or “If only I could get this going I could>…..” these types of statements in your thoughts are not what is right now. The power is in the moment of right now. You can create and choose in this moment only. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come. Right now is where you are and where it’s at! You will find that if you stay in the now moment you are less likely to experience waves of emotions that are not real but more illusion.

Look at the fear that is causing the emotional outburst. I am afraid to be alone, I am afraid to die alone, I am afraid I will never find love again, I am not worthy, I am not deserving, I am not pretty enough or smart enough, whatever tape is playing in your head at the base of that fear reaction, then counter that thought with I am never alone, I will not die alone, I will find love again, I am worthy of all good things, I am deserving of love and happiness, I am beautiful and I love myself, I am smart and funny, I am love and I only accept that which is healthy and for my highest good in my life, life flows to me with ease and grace, my lessons come with ease and grace, i am creation, these types of statements can replace the old tapes. These affirmations help shift what is causing the pain. Our stinking thinking about stuff. This is not to say life is always wonderful, this is to say these are some ways on how to pick up the pieces when there’s a million of them to pick up. The nice thing about that is you can paint your own picture how you want the pieces to fit! It’s your paint and your canvas how do you want your picture to look, make it so. We cannot control others or what they do or say or think, if we are trying then we need to look at our own need to control and work with it.

Try this mindfullness awareness exercise for a week. Let us know what results you found out about yourself!

Love and light everyone!

Kimberly
