With the best intentions begin the day. Let your own inner light rise with the morning sun and bring it forth with the spirit of your intent to have a day of wonder, beauty and gratitude. For all you are naturally granted, the ability to experience a new day and to be open to what may come, be thankful. There is so much going on in the world to worry about, but for this moment count your blessings and start the day on the right foot, setting it down on your true path of heart, the one you find yourself on this day.

Sending you love,
The Soul Sisters, Jan & Jeanne

Trust that you have within you everything you need to form a life, that you have the strength, the perseverance, the knowledge and wisdom that will attract all that you need to create your own destiny. And then, once you trust yourself, express gratitude for the life you are in, for the simple pleasure of sunlight on a cold day, the song of a bird heralding spring, the stars looking down on you at night. Be grateful for what is, and be grateful for what is to surely come.

Sending you love,
The Soul Sisters, Jan & Jeanne

Hold yourself in the highest esteem and with gratitude acknowledge the great journey of life that you have been upon, for you have already come far and done much. Accept that, and with that perspective in mind look forward to continuing your journey with new awareness, conscious of all that you choose to do, knowing that every day and every decision matters. With your spirit in the fore now, do more than just carry on; travel now with love in your heart for the good struggle you have had and the joy of knowing that with love comes a new appreciation for all that you are and all that you can be.

Sending you love,
The Soul Sisters, Jan & Jeanne


Greetings to all whose physical lives were sacrificed,

On the battlefields of Earth in all times past and present.
To those who have yet to become aware of their changed life status,
Caught still in the PTSD of battlefield trauma,
Be awakened now by the thoughts and prayers of your earthly Brethren.
Look around at the oft relived scenes of your prior battles;
Notice they are no longer substantial.
Notice the luminous transparency of your Spirit body.
Yes you have died and yes you live.
Turn your gaze upward to the loving faces, the welcoming arms,
Of those family, friends and comrades who predeceased you.
Join them in your new lightness of being.
Sending love and good cheer from this dimension to yours,
Let us remain connected in Spirit even across this denser divide,
In time we will all fully unite.
