Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Default My Lucky Stars-by Shirley

Dear Shirley and wonderful forum friends

Yesterday I was on a train going to city when I started to read 'My Lucky Stars-A Hollywood Memoir by Shirley MacLaine. This is the only book I have not read in a list of all books written by dear Shirley.

Thanks for this synchronicity that I read yesterday in your Memoir Shirley.
Here is part that touched me so deeply chapter 1 page 18:

Now I cried as I walked through the house feeling Mother and her wisdom in every room. Feeling how right she had been about so many things and how wrong I had been in not listening to her more.

She slowly guided me through the house as though she was taking one last walk with me. This was the person who had given me life and now she was proceeding to another level of her own. It was the last time I would see the place as we had lived in it, and I FELT WE WERE DOING IT TOGETHER.

I stopped in the living room with the white sofa and the red pillows- she loved that colour combination. I sat down on it the way she used to. I crossed my legs as she used to. I felt that I was her.

I thought about how much she had wanted to be a recognised actress. How much she had lived through me. I thought of her soft, measured voice reading me poetry. Why didn't she pursue her dream? I wondered.

Than I felt her say, ' Because I wanted to be a mother more."
End quote

As I read this I started crying and I had to stop reading because I got very emotional. I was in train going to meet with my mother 81 who was to have a nuclear scan that will show if she has a cancer growing in her thought.

I thought of the wonderful roles we humans play here on earth and about the greatest role of all that is to be a mother to give the greatest gift of all the gift of life.

Two years ago in December 2010 in meditation goddess Ceres told me to become prepared for the darkest hour in my family as my mother may choose to die in 2011. I told this than to my sister and another friend.

On 21 April 2011 my mother had a stoke, I was away 300 km from Sydney but I felt guided to ring my mother that morning. When I talked with mum she sounded strange so I rung my sister in Sydney who than spoke with mum and realised that mum just had a stoke. In short time mum was in hospital.

Next day was a Good Friday I went to church and pray for her recovery. I do go to church sometimes and I also go to other like Hindu and Buddhist temples to pray too.

When I rung mum on Saturday she was back her full self with her mind sharp and she also told me how she dreamt that night of her second husband Wladek my step father who died many years ago and whom I used to channel for 2 years to my mother.

In that dream my mother said he come dressed in nice suit and he said that he was going dancing. So mum felt she wanted to go with him and said 'Wait I will get dressed and I go with you" but he smiled at her and said; 'No I am going alone".

Mother recovered and I was with her in Sydney when on Mothers Day in May 2011 we did meditation together and I asked my guides about my mother. My guide said: Your mother will live longer that it was anticipated'.

So she is still with us and she is aware spiritually, that is blessing as she is saying that she is getting tired to be here. She is reading now Sage-ing while Age-ing. I have a strong karmic connection with mum as her Sun and Moon are in conjunction my Moon 5 degree in sidereal Pisces my second house.

My mother in this life had a role of a single mum raising my sister and I so she was both mother and Father to us. I celebrate with you our fathers and our Mothers on this September weekend. Loving you.

Ps. As I was writing the quote notice that some letters come in big letters so I left them maybe there is a message to some.

Thumbs up

Hello Basia,

Loved My Lucky Stars, enjoyed all of the LasVegas stories about Sinatra, Martin, Sammy and their cronies, remembering the part about Frank putting silverware in his pocket because he always stole something from restaurants, too funny.
