This woman has words of wisdom, hope, and love.
Like every good book, our lives have many chapters and my book is about to turn a page!
Now is the time for rest, recuperation, and renewal of my Spirit so that I can move forward toward my new goals and aspirations!
My new goals include but are not limited to:
Other events coming up this year are my father’s 98th birthday on May 7, 2017, and the birthdays of my children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Today, I contemplate three words: right, wright, and write.
Right means good, true, correct.
A wright is a maker or builder.
I will write about the breakthrough I had staying right on course being the wright of my life.
I am making my life liveable in the right way and I am fortunate to be able to write about it, here, where perhaps one other person will get what I mean. I am fulfilling my right purpose by being the wright of my existence and writing about it.
The day is still young.
Today, in response to a blog on The Loneliness of the Spinster, I posted the following:
In defense of antiquated terms, I wrote this blog in April 2016: https://divineconnectionchurch.wordpress.com/2014/04
I am a soon-to-be 69-year-old mother of two, grandmother of five, and great grandmother of three, who is just completing a doctorate in business administration/marketing with the plan of being a professor for the duration of my life, after having toured 19 countries as a jazz vocalist. In addition, I am divorced four times over. My motto was and still is “You cheat. You hit. I’m gone.”
Moreover, I am a woman of color surrounded by a community of people of color who would be destitute if it were not for their good government job, which may come to a screeching halt in light of the plans of the President-elect. I have lived in singular bliss since 2000, and loneliness has only reared its evil head on a very few occasions. I cherish silence and solitude which afford me time to hear myself think.
Hannah, I do believe that people in loveless relationships are far lonelier than I have been in my singular state. Of course, I get to talk to my children regularly. However, they reside in other states and seeing them is not a regular occurrence. All of that being revealed, I am a crone, a mid-life spinster-of-sorts who has fashioned my future through education. As I told one of my Speech Communications students just last week, “Always give yourself the benefit of the doubt. Never let what others think you should do with your life prevail over your own wishes for you.”
Marriage and parenthood are overrated, in my opinion, especially bad marriages that subsist for the benefit of children who will leave the nest and generally leave mother to care for a dominant father. That is not the scenario for all marriages. However, it is a very lonely scenario. My advice to young women who have not fallen into the love-and-marriage cipher is to live the best life that you can for YOU! Period.
Your destiny is written by your higher self. Your soul records every single wish and desire and, if living single is your choice, no one should be able to dictate anything different to you. Regarding the glass ceiling for single, queer women (including those of color), the option of forming your own company to provide a product or service is always there, whether you continue to teach or not.
Think about forming a non-profit corporation to support women in their careers based upon the complaints you lay out in your essay. You may find a new path to tread that can bring light to hundreds, if not thousands of women around the world!

The recording from 3 28 2016 ProphForeSee below features a discussion of the return of the Divine Feminine and the responsibility of women on Earth to reclaim their power in order to restore peace on Earth. Thanks to Linda, Denise, Beverly, Tom, and Cheryl for allowing me – Joan – to discuss the importance of remembering the Divine Feminine. Also, thanks to Rhonda, founder of the Truth Uncompromeyezed Network!
Linda spoke about the treaties:
MAKE THE CALL
Know that Mamayahallah is waiting for your call. Whatever your heart desires will come to fruition. So, wake up, grow up, and be the LIGHT that you are!
Dream – Keep your dream close to your heart and your mind will know the answer. While your soul plays the chords, your imagination can be the dancer! ~ Diva JC
Since 1983, I’ve been building dream boards with destinations I wanted to visit. I began touring Europe in 1990 and visited most countries on my board except Ireland, Scotland, Egypt and India.
Presently, my dream is to develop multiple streams of income with rapid flow as I complete my PhD in Business Marketing, build my www.fyitravel.biz and continue to recruit members into www.wijsf.org to promote women musicians, globally. My goal is to find like minded people, who are interested in fulfilling their dreams and willing to do what it takes to do that.
Education – Now, in my fifth year of doctoral studies at Northcentral University, I see the light at the end of the tunnel. My projected completion date is January 2016. The next step is to travel to Fiuggi, Italy, where I will do research at Fondazione Adkins-Chiti: Donne in Musica on the economic status of women musicians.
Opportunity – There are several streams of income I have at my disposal including:
The object is to get ALL of these opportunities flowing rapidly!
As I think back on my Catholic education, I do not recall anyone mentioning whether or not those who crucified Jesus of Nazareth thought about how his mother, Mary would feel, seeing her son nailed to a cross. It is alarming how definite people are about their beliefs, while trodding all over the lives of others.
Did any of the warmongers ever think about how the mothers of the soldiers they killed would feel?
That question haunts me as I contemplate the centuries of wars waged in the name of God in every country on the globe. I’ve never been able to wrap my head around the term “Holy Wars”. Yet, cousins – Jews, Christians, and Muslims – have waged war against each other for over 3,000 years without enough people calling them out on their familial love.
Likewise, in African and Eastern cultures, different factions in China, India, and Korea cannot seem to see eye to eye. It’s a paradox. While ministers preach, today, in churches, temples, and mosques, men sit around tables, plotting how to undermine their own family members because, of course, we are All family, right?
STOP AND THINK!
I wonder how many mothers sit around plotting on how to take bread out of the mouths of the babes of their sisters.
I wonder how many sons sit around plotting on how to take the savings of their sisters and mothers.
I wonder how many sisters sit around plotting on how to take their sister’s husband.
I wonder these things because wars seem to take place between people who are family or at the least close friends. What goes wrong? Where do the paths divide to cause people to be so cruel to each other?
When the Jews plotted to kill Jesus, also a Jew, did they ever stop to think – this man is my brother, my cousin, my nephew, my relative? Did they ever stop to think – this man has a mother who will grieve his senseless death?
My heart is full this morning because I’ve lived 65 years without ever feeling that I needed to harm someone else in order to have or get something or be happy. I may have thought “I need to get away from this person in order to have peace of mind.” But never did it enter my mind that I needed to hurt someone to have personal happiness.
That is the blessing I am grateful for, today. As the mother of two, grandmother of five, great grandmother of two, ex-wife of four men, sister of one brother, aunt of one nephew, daughter of a wonderful mother and father, and friend of many, I thank God/Goddess/All That Is for the peace of mind I am feeling at this moment.
I wish I could be instrumental in helping others to see the abundance I have experienced in my life that has been my reality without ever knowingly hurting another to get where I have been, where I am, and where I have yet to go.
I pray that, today, people all over the planet have an epiphany – Know that you are blessed, each and every one of your life. Know that there is no need for conquering, competition, conflict, confrontation or conspiring. There is more than enough food, water, shelter – absolute abundance – for each and every Child of the Universe. THIS is the message I would like to convey to everyone, on this Holy Day in the Life of Planet Earth!
Today, I pray for a mass ascension for all Earthlings – Jew and Gentile, Male and Female, Old and Young, Democrat and Republican. I pray that while they are on their knees, praising God, Christians will find it in their hearts to also celebrate the Goddess, the Divine Feminine that is awakening in each of us to draw us back to the heart center in order to restore the Holy Family.
With Light and Love,
I have asked myself these questions for over 40 years. I have contemplated my own divinity and come to the conclusion that the breath within me is the Goddess Principle that I must connect with on an hourly and daily basis. I conclude that it is folly to expect anyone else to be responsible for my life, which was given to me for a purpose. Determining that purpose is my mission.
The survivors of all catastrophe on Earth have a duty to themselves to go within, forget outward things and circumstances, and connect with their inner power. Humans tend to project their fear onto the outer world. They blame everyone else but themselves for what is happening to them, personally.
This morning, on the news, I saw a woman in Staten Island whose house was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy saying, “This can never be repaired.” She was pointing to a thing not realizing that she still had life and things have nothing to do with her survival and existence.
How can we impart this knowledge to people who focus on things rather than life itself?
I remember, in the 1980s, when a boyfriend set my house on fire. For three weeks following the fire, I lay in bed at my friend’s house, crying and lamenting the loss of all of my belongings. I was depressed about losing things but most of all, I was distraught that someone would do this kind of thing to me.
What had I done to deserve this?
In months and years to follow, I reckoned that I had learned an invaluable lesson: the loss of things cannot be compared to my life. I stood on the principle that I AM THAT, I AM. I still had breath. Blood still flowed through my veins and now, 30 years, later, I am a happy, well-adjusted woman who is focused on the Goddess within me.
No man, woman or child can sway me to believe anything other than I AM a Divine Being having a Human experience. It is my duty to send LIGHT and LOVE to the survivors of all catastrophes in the recent past – Northeast United States, Japan, the Middle East, etc.
When people awaken to their True Divine Selves, the planet will heal. Until then, nature will continue to put people in the position of discomfort. All power of the Universe is in the hearts and minds of people. Tell the person next to you to go inside and find that place of love, light, and power that can change the world!
