If I’d Have Known…..

If I would have known the outcome of my first marriage, I never would have married. If I knew what awaited me in Florida, I never would have moved there. If I knew what would happen throughout my second marriage, I certainly would not have married again. If I knew where my move to Panama would lead, I would never have braved that fateful journey with my six suitcases in tow. If I knew the upcoming happenings in Costa Rica, I wouldn’t have traveled there either.

If I’d have known the region name, Manabi, meant desert, I definitely would not have come. Things would certainly have made more sense to me as I puzzled at the less than desirable dry surroundings when I landed in Manta, Ecuador and during the taxi drive to Puerto Cayo. That was just the beginning of the interesting surprises for me there. If I’d have known how things would develop, I never would have come.

Here in Ecuador unfolded another case of someone misrepresenting their situation. I flew off to assist at a “resort” with a “restaurant”. Upon my arrival, I found the place to be neither. “Little Me” wanted to turn around and run someplace else.
Regardless of those feelings, I still could have assisted. I could have helped change the tide. In spite of all my dedication and efforts, there were no apparent significant shifts. The owner simply wasn’t ready……or perhaps he was! Maybe he was perfectly ready to provide me with those exact circumstances for my growth. There is no victimhood for me and I realize, on some level, I create or co-create my circumstances. This scene in the play of my life fulfilled many purposes. One of these was to strengthen my conviction that I can, not only handle anything that comes my way, I can walk through it in peace and joy. My monkey mind screams, “Here we go again. What’s the matter with you? Don’t you get it yet?” Yet nothing is the matter. All is well. Maybe I don’t get “it” all yet but my connection to Source allows me to know I am still on the right path for me.

Los Suenos del Mar was exactly where I was supposed to be at the time even if it didn’t make a whole lot of sense to me. The “Dreams of the Sea” part was clearly one of the greatest gems of my experience there. My room backed directly onto the wide expanse of beach so the lullaby of the waves was a soothing constant. No matter what was going on, that one simple factor kept me in peace always. Throughout my stay, I had a no doubt knowing that it was where I was “supposed” to be. A number of details sparkled showing me some of the reasons for my presence/presents. Alyssa was another work exchange person very briefly there with whom I made a warm connection. Mary, originally from Texas, had Providence lead her to building her house in the development right next door….and meeting me on the beach. We brightened each other’s lives in more delightful ways than I can count. The Universe sometimes operates in mysterious ways. I had put out the desire to remember and reconnect with my power and previous wisdom regarding crystal energy. To my complete amazement, I discovered dozens upon dozens of quartz and quartz crystals on the beach.
Numerous varieties included amethyst, rose, amber and, of course, white. Quartz is often referred to as the Universal Crystal because of its many uses. It enhances energy by absorbing, storing, amplifying, balancing, focusing and transmitting. It channels universal energy. Quartz also enhances thoughts, as they are a form of energy. Because it directs and amplifies energy, it is extremely beneficial for manifesting, healing, meditation, protection, and channeling. From the magical crystal abundance on the beach I joyfully collected many for unique gifts, personal use and perhaps other reasons yet to be shown me. I’m not so sure of any impact I may have had on the people of Suenos del Mar. I worked my best to assist them but it was their choice to keep doing the same things that kept them in the same place. I believe this aspect was maybe more for me than for them. Many times in my past I have worked to help people shift and empower themselves only to have them keep going in their own circles. Perhaps it was for me to recognize the situation around certain peoples’ choices, know when I could do no more for them and move on…in peace. When I shared this with a friend, she complimented me on recognizing the pattern within weeks instead of years. Evidently I don’t need to keep “repeating” that one.

If I’d have known in advance….that’s just the thing. I had no idea and that is the blessing. I was meant to go all these places and have all these experiences for my highest good and that of all around me. For example, if I hadn’t married the first time, my beautiful daughter and son would not be here now…..and I know they certainly wished to play on Planet Earth!
While my human self would have made way different choices with a properly functioning crystal ball, the part of me that is divine sees how perfect every step of my journey has been and continues to be. Sometimes I’m privy to see the peoples’ lives I’ve touched in profound ways. Occasionally I feel like I am in on the itinerary that I realize I myself created. And constantly, should I choose to stand in appreciation, I can see beauty and miracles along the way in every situation I have been in. Indeed I have been blessed with an exceptional holiday gift in my current location. But that's a story for another day!

Thank you for your constant accompaniment of this journey. It is my sincere hope that my experiences have edified and perhaps let to some brighter ways in your life as well. If it resonates with you, perhaps now is a good time to investigate a ways to support you and your loved ones health Juice Plus and/or the Tower Garden. It would be a positive gift for yourself and the Planet as well as assisting me in my travels. You will probably find all the info you need to decide via the links. If not, feel free to email me

Wishing You the most Joyous Magical Holiday Season! Abundant Blessings of the Sea to You and Your Loved Ones!
