Who Am I?

Again, it is time to reinvent, after recapping the activities and occurrences of the past year. It was a very hot year, 2017. Many things culminated in 2017, including the completion of my doctorate.

peace-sign handThis completion led to new beginnings that I am just now recognizing. I live in a new place, in a new city, with new responsibilities and goals. The goal is to take it to the next level. But first, I must recognize who I AM!

I AM the light, the way, the bringer of peace and tranquility. THAT is who I AM!

I live in the light. I walk the way. I bring peace.

I AM tranquility.

I AM ascending to higher heights of knowing, understanding, and being.

My universe is filled with moments of love, light, peace, and joy.

Singular bliss defines my existence.



What made you change?

Last week, I posed a question on the website http://www.quora.com.

What unexpected event made you reimagine yourself?

This is a response I got:

Hi Joan,

In my life, I experienced a range of unexpected events, which was for me the best way to open my eyes and to become awakened. I endured a lot of very terrible negative situations.

I have experienced so much lying, cheating, deceiving from others about me in my whole life to turn your stomach around. In my younger years
I often thought about killing myself. Not, that I felt that I was a bad person, No. I was always happy with myself and my decisions. I just wanted to go back home (Heaven) and leave this selfish egotistical world. But, I was helped by my spirit guides to keep on fighting and more important to search for the truths of life. Still I was always trying to do the right positive thing, what is good for others and good for me and good for Nature, still, I was always losing. For a long time, I didn’t understand my life or the reason for it

Seeing as a twenty-year-old boy my father hanging at a rope, suicide. Losing later in life my loved two children, my possessions, houses, sail yacht, companies, all friends and almost all family. Little ups and even further down the hill. Even went on wandering for a while to find myself, again.

I was forced by life, to detach from my life and start searching for the truths in life and about life. Forced to learn about humans and our complete spiritual world. I had time to channel, time to write, time to search for the truths in life. I learned so much that I want now to share to help others.

By a very hard life, I have learned so much about life and people.

The reason for everyone’s life is to grow above the negativity of the ego perspective and to grow above the negativity of life. You can do this by formulating only positive thoughts in all situations. A positive thought is that what is good for yourself AND good for all other people in the world AND good for Nature.

You will then learn that neither a person nor a negative situation can make you feel bad. It is always your own decision how you want to feel. You will start to understand how emotions really work and that it is just a matter if your energy pattern of your thoughts line up with your Higher Self. More important you learn how to listen to the voice of your Soul, your conscience, spirit guides and even to your higher self.

All these negative situations I experienced in life, opened for me a new door that led to the path to enlightenment. Now, looking back, I don’t regret a thing, because I understand it was my time in this life to become awakened.

The ego perspective of many people will not understand this reasoning because they base their perspective on greed. When you start to embrace your pure positive Soul inside of you, you will know exactly who you are.

Our world is an illusion within an illusion still for persistent purposes. All our Souls are on a journey to grow from cycle 1 to cycle 9. Still many people need many lifetimes to grow even one cycle. Some give up and grow back into their higher self and start living further. That is also the reason we all are connected.

Almost all people live on a low frequency forced by our secret world government thought television, movies and even our way of life. Raise your frequency by making positive thoughts as explained above, grow above the negativity and start to awaken yourself. That is if you choose to do so.

I hope I have answered your question. More questions, let me know.

Light Body

From http://www.visionalignmentproject.com

A Vision for Building a Light Body

1EnergyShifts_122514We see a world where people everywhere, in every land, in every walk of life, have realized that there is a process of evolution proceeding in humankind, and that this process involves us growing a soul – or, as it is sometimes called, building a light body.

We see humanity’s focus on education now directed away from the mundane political, historical, and economic topics, and moved toward those endeavors which enhance the possibilities for our soul’s growth – endeavors such as meditation, right thinking, proper prayer, intention making, community making, self-empowerment, Qigong, Tai Chi, yoga, pranic breathing, pranic eating, astrology, tarot, daily exercise and more. Likewise, we see certain books being especially helpful. Books such as: I Ching, A Course in Miracles, The Way of Mastery, Journey Beyond Words, The Code: 10 Intentions for a Better World, The Fifth Agreement, Oneness, The Impersonal Life, The Way Out, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, The Twelfth Insight, The I AM Discourses, books by Gregg Braden, Abraham/Hicks, Barbara Marciniak, Deepak Chopra, Rasha, James Redfield, Eckhart Tolle, Wayne Dyer, Ken Carey, Neale Donald Walsch, Mike Dooley, Byron Katie, Kryon, David Wilcock, Carlos Casteneda and more.

Accordingly, we see ourselves living in a world where our priorities have shifted en masse, whereby we now know that our essence is multidimensional and that the next rung on our evolutionary ladder brings us into a conscious awareness of God and the knowing that we are all connected to each other. With such an awareness, our Spirit is freed to explore, experience, and evolve into lighter states of being, higher states of joy, sacred states of love.



jcaura-redart Change is the fluidity of life. Transformation is at the core of our existence. We might fight it, avoid it, ignore it, or be unconscious of it. But our transformation is always happening even if we cannot see it. Molecules are ever-moving. When we don’t fight it, welcome it, embrace it, and consciously engage in transformation, we can soar to unexpected heights of existence.

The purpose of the brain is to receive impulses from the Universal Mind. The nature of the Universe is abundance. Imagine summoning to your brain and life experience all that you need, all good experiences, all protection, joy, happiness, and satisfaction.

Be the keeper of your storehouse. Mjcaura-redfrescootivate yourself to succeed in every endeavor. See your accomplishments and the fulfillments of your goal. Recognize that the Universe gives you everything you need and desire.

Your conscious call to the Universe to lift you up where you belong is always being answered. You must be listening and observing how things are changing in your favor.  Nothing happens without thought. Be in control of yours. Manipulate them to create all the desires of your heart. ~ Dr. Diva JC

A New Year


No, no, no.

I will not be patient with people who are whiny, needy, unconscious, and stupid.
I will not tolerate people who are thoughtless, overbearing, biased, and trifling.
I will not compromise my comfort, health, finances, or happiness to please others.

This is a New Year! I have a new outlook, a new perspective. People can only hassle you if you let them and, this year, I refuse to LET THEM hassle me.

I will live my life according to my wishes. I will enjoy every moment. I will not do anything I do not want to do just to make someone else happy. Yes, I care about people but I put ME first in every single situation. I have paid the price to choose this stance and I am going to keep this promise to ME.


It’s my turn. It’s ME TIME!

A New Year!

What’s Happening

This past weekend, I moved yet another time.  This is my 9th roommate, since February 2013. That’s when I moved from Oakland Park to Hollywood, Florida, where I lived for six months with Marika (1). In September, I moved to Delray Beach with Kat (2). On December 15, I moved to Atlanta with my daughter Mimi (3). I stayed there until July 2015, when I moved with Brad (4) in his rented house. By October 1, 2015, I moved with my brother Carlton (5) in West Palm Beach.20160903_170513


20160911_125724In December 2015, I moved to my father’s house (6) for one month. Then, on January 15, 2016, I moved to Sunrise, Florida, with my friend Sherry (7). I stayed there for 8 months, until August 13, when I moved, again. I went to Atlanta for two weeks and, when I returned , I moved to Boynton Beach with Michelle (8). I stayed there from September 3 until November 27, when I moved to Delray Beach with Sylvie (9).


Most of all, I must be appreciative of having nine people who cared enough about me to share their home with me.  Although I miss having my own place, I have had a wonderful time sharing ideas and stories with my roommates. Once I complete my doctorate in 2017, I will earn enough as an adjunct professor of Speech and Business to get my own place.  Until then, I’m grateful for a roof over my head and a clean, comfortable bed to sleep in. Having a nice bathroom and kitchen is so important.  Life is grand when you have what you need and good people to share it with.

Write Your Life

Today, in response to a blog on The Loneliness of the SpinsterI posted the following:

In defense of antiquated terms, I wrote this blog in April 2016: https://divineconnectionchurch.wordpress.com/2014/04

1jc-united-state-of-women-profile-pledgeI 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!
