Seeding Planet Earth

There is a theory that humanity developed from space, that we were placed here by a benevolent race from outside this universe.  There have been many movies and television series that touched on this theory.  In the Star trek The Next Generation episode called The Chase in one of the final scenes, we see a hologram of a humanoid explaining how all races are tied together:
Star Trek Next Generation The Chase Monologue


One of the plot lines in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus posits the same theory that we all have one common ancestor and that ancestor is tied to a seeding of the planets from another world.

At the 40 second mark of The Prometheus Trailer, we hear someone discuss a pictogram that was discovered in civilizations separated by centuries.

The February 6 release of Jupiter Ascending is the latest movie to proffer this theory.  Not that these examples necessarily prove the theory, however knowing that there are many who promote this and seeing it show up so frequently certainly relays the fact that there is something going on.  As Law of Attraction states:
The more something shows up in our reality, the clearer it becomes that we should pay attention.


Maybe that’s why I walked into The Madison Coffee Shop a few months ago and saw my friend, Pete Onofrio.  As we waited for our lunches we started a conversation about a variety of topics we are both passionate about.  One of the topics Pete brought up was the theory that we originated from the stars.  The funny thing about my showing up at The Coffee Shop that afternoon was that it wasn’t my initial intention.  I planned on going somewhere else.  Obviously the Divine had other plans.


That’s what usually happens when I run into Pete.  I never really plan on doing The Coffee Shop when I see Pete there.  The Divine knows when he is there and it ALWAYS diverts my thought process.  We’ve talked about this before as well, how we end up seeing each other and it’s totally serendipitous.


So; the theory that we originated from the stars, how does one balance this with a belief in God?  If we DID originate from another species, who created THAT species?  I’ve touched on this topic previously in a column called Alien Life.  Like the Chicken and the Egg, which came first?  Someone had to create the first life.  As The Bible says:
And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.


Who is to say that God didn’t seed the multiverse?  What if God was the benevolent being who put is DNA everywhere?


Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.



Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;


We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.

You Were Born With Wings

You were born with potential.  You were born with goodness and trust.  You were born with ideals and dreams.  You were born with greatness.  You were born with wings.  You were not meant for crawling. You have wings.  Learn to use them and fly.




I don’t recall recall how I initially came across Rumi.  However, everything I’ve read as resonated deeply with me.  Rumi is a wonderful inspiration for those looking for positivity in their lives.  When we incarnate, we we are naturally love.  We are goodness and trust.  No one is born without those intentions.  So what happens to those souls who grow up and lose those innate feelings of love?  Of trust?


Society happens.
Society burns those out of us.  We forget because those around us make us forget.  You know what, though?


Love is still there!
Trust is still there!
Our wings are still there!

Image from:
AngelWingsThey are only hiding.  Our task while incarnated is to remember that we are made of love.  We are positive energy.  Love is all around us.  Greatness is within us, hiding. Our wings are still there too.


If you want to find your wings,
If you want to find your love,
If you want to find your dreams,


The only thing you can do is look within.  And remember:
You won’t be able to give love.  You won’t be able to give dreams, if you can’t find them within yourself.


So how do you find something that you once owned but have misplaced?  Do you look in the same places over and over hoping that the next time you look there, the missing item will miraculously appear?  I know I’ve done that countless times as I’m sure many people have.


But when searching for an emotion such as love or greatness if you look in the same old places you may get burned. That’s why the ONLY place to find these lost emotions are within yourself.

Those wings?
That love?
That greatness?


They’ve taken up residence deep within your soul and the only way to recover them is to dig them out.  Tell yourself you are love.  Tell yourself greatness resides within you.  Even if you don’t believe it, eventually those words will become a mantra and eventually you can’t help but listen and when you start listening, listening will mold itself into belief.


Once belief takes hold you can fly with those beautiful angel wings that have sprouted once more.  That is simply the beginning of your new life.  Once you have your wings, once you have recovered that lost child, then the most challenging part of your new life begins:
You must show others how to discover their own greatness.


For greatness, love and wings grow exponentially when shared.  Are you up for the task?

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.



Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;


We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.

Alien Life

I know!

A little outside Wisdom and Life’s purview, but the column is sort of apropos for today, being as it is Halloween:

Anyone ever watch The History Channel’s Decoded with Brad Meltzer?  I recently watched the episode called UFO.
How many believe we have been visited by alien life?  
How many believe there is life on other planets?  
How many have seen a UFO?






Image from:

If you believe God exists, does that preclude you from believing in life on other planets?  Why do you think God would create only one life form?  If he is indeed all powerful why would he want us to be his only creation?  I understand that I may be ruffling some feathers here, but why is it that many on both sides of the Alien Life spectrum have such distaste for each other:
On one hand we have the religious front that feels that God created us in his likeness and and how could he daine to create more life somewhere else, for we are the chosen?


What happens when science discovers life somewhere else or when undeniable proof arrives in the form of alien visitation?  Which many people claim to have witnessed.


On the other hand we have those people who have said they have come in contact with alien life, whether it is from seeing alien craft or actually seeing the Greys.


Typically these people are met with scorn, derision or are ostracized from their communities.  How is there expected to be a resolution to this if these factions can’t find equal footing?  It’s like I’ve said at Wisdom and Life previously:
We should be looking at our similarities.
We should be finding common ground.


There have been some highly reputable people who claim to have seen UFO’s
Former President Ronald Reagan claimed to have a UFO experience.
Former President Jimmy Carter had a UFO experience as well.


Neither of these former presidents ever backed away from their initial stories


That’s the ONLY way we will survive in the future.  We have far more commonalities than we do differences.  Speaking of knowing our common interests, Former President Reagan discussed this very matter while he was president:
UFO – Ronald Reagan’s Speech about Alien Invasion




I take Story Musgrave’s approach to life elsewhere:
That our universe is so exponentially large of course there is life somewhere else.
Look at the Hubble telescope.  Every picture it returns to us is just a fraction of the number of planets and stars that live in our vast universe.  Of course there is life somewhere else.


My own philosophy:
It would take someone with a very small mind, someone extremely egotistical NOT to feel that there is life somewhere else.


When I was around fourteen years old I was fishing on Blissville Pond in Lisbon, Connecticut with my maternal grandfather and we both saw something black and spherical in the sky floating just above the water about a quarter mile away from us.  It flew around the pond briefly then shot straight up.  Blissville Pond has been a hotbed for activity in the past too.  Several of my friends in Lisbon have also said they’ve seen similar things in the same vicinity as my grandfather and I did.

What is your take on alien life?
Does it clash with your faith?  If so why?


Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.



Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;


We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.



Phone Call to the Future

My Mom and Dad divorced when I was probably less than a year old, I don’t recall exactly.  I went to live with my Mom and we moved from Lisbon, Connecticut to Farmington, Connecticut.  It was in Farmington where life became challenging as we lived with an emotionally and physically abusive environment.  I understand now why that happened. See?

Image from:

God/The Divine always does something for the greater good.  I understand THAT now too.  As I’m so fond of saying however, when anyone is in the middle of a storm and they can’t see land, it is impossible to think you’ll ever set foot on solid ground again.


The Divine is ALWAYS looking out for you, watching out for you, protecting you.  I see that now.  I considered this the other day when I went to dinner with my Mom.  Somehow we were drawn into remembering numbers.  We talked about various license plates.  It’s a gift I have that I can remember numbers from my youth.  I then recalled that our phone numbers in Farmington and New Haven were off by JUST one number:
The VERY first digit.

In Farmington, our phone number was:

In New Haven, our phone number was:



You know I feel about coincidences.  They don’t exist.  EVERYTHING happens for a reason.  Alright.  Let’s take a closer look at the first three digits and see if we can interpret their meaning.  I may lose some of you here.  You may feel that Chris has slipped off The Deep End again.  There is an esoteric theory that numbers are one of the ways the Divine speaks to us.  I wrote a column about this called Angel Numbers  a couple of years ago.


If we look at each numer, first 667 as that number was first in my latest incarnation, we can see from Joanne Walmsley – SACRED SCRIBES what the number 667 means according to Joanne:
The repeating number 667 indicates that positive solutions and answers will present in order to resolve any issues that are currently causing anxiety or concern in your life.  Your angels are by your side offering their support and guidance. Trust that all will work out for your highest good.


Funny.  Isn’t that what I said above:
That I understand that everything happens for a reason?
That God/The Divine always does something for the greater good.


Look at what Joanne says the number 467 says:
Angel Number 467 is a message of ‘congratulations’ from the angels.  They have been supporting and encouraging you along your life path and applaud you for placing emphasis and focus upon your personal spiritual growth.  Trust that your needs will be catered to in your daily life as you have put thought and considered efforts into all aspects of your life and have manifested balance and positive abundance.


This can ONLY mean ONE thing:
That even though I wasn’t aware at the time
That even though I wasn’t awakened
The Divine was looking out for me even when I didn’t know it.


If you believe Angel Numbers you only have to refer back to the uncoincidental numbers that my Farmington and New Haven Phone numbers shared in common.  I mean, C’MON!  This doesn’t just happen without a reason.


Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.


Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;

We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying. 

For there truly is no end.

The Secret of Contentment

I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation,
whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or want.
I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
Philippians 4:12-13

Image from:


When someone who doesn’t know me well breaks into my inner circle and begins to understand the many challenges I faced growing up, the question that invariably comes up is:
How did you survive?


I understand that it sounds cliche, only because it seems that everyone says it, but for me it is the God’s honest truth.  More than anything else it was and continues to be my faith that pulls me through every situation I found myself in.


I understand that I’ve spoken here many times about the Divine/God/Source but that’s only because my faith plays a huge role in my life.  As the last line in in the quote says:
I can do everything through him who gives me strength.


Faith and my belief in predestination truly carried the day.
A belief that everything works for the greater good.
A belief that there are no bad things, everything that happens is meant to make us stronger, is meant to move us forward.


Life is an evolutionary process.
Life is about moving forward.  And since we return over and over, what we don’t get right in this, our latest incarnation we will have the opportunity to make right in the next life.


My secret of contentment,
My secret of peace,
My secret to life is this:
There are no mistakes!
There are no coincidences!
We return over and over, and we never get it completely right.


Someone asked me last week why we must be in this human shell, because after all that’s all our bodies are:
A shell encompassing what is REALLY important.
This body we are in, this shell we carry around with us is there to protect our inner being, our light, our spirit.  The truly important beings we are:

Our Souls.  We are after all spiritual beings having a human experience.


The sooner the bulk of humanity realizes this the better our world will be.

So returning to THAT question:
Why are trapped in this shell?


We incarnate into the physical because this is where we come to learn from past challenges.  If we remained as we truly are, Light, Spirit, Free; we would never move beyond our experience. The concept behind reincarnation is evolution.  The only way for us to evolve, to move closer to the Divine, to become more God like is to experience challenges in our lives. We certainly can’t have physical experiences while we are in our natural state.


You already know what I believe our natural state is:
One of light.  One of spirit.


So again the secret to my contentment
the secret to my peace
the secret to my joy is:

Understanding this
Understanding that predestination is ALWAYS working in my life.

That I chose this incarnation before I incarnated.  As I said in Soul Groups:
For it is in our humanity that we are tested.  And we don’t know our results until we are all together again in Transition Station.  Notice we go through Transition Tunnel to get to Transition Station?  It is only after we have each reviewed our lives with each member of our group that we can decide when to go back.  It is then that we are brought to Transition Hall.  Here is where we choose our next life.  That next life will be a result of how we performed in our previous life.


That’s my secret:
Knowing that I planned everything in my life.
Knowing that major events are indeed “carved in stone.”
Knowing that everything happens for the greater good.


I’m fortunate to have awakened.  Now I have an opportunity to awaken others, to help other remove their spiritual blinders and see the world for what it truly is:


Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.


Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;

We then lose all our distress,
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.

Feeling Trapped?

–Are you feeling like you are trapped in a losing situation?
–Feeling imprisoned?
–Are you feeling like which ever way you turn you’ll make a wrong move?
–Are you feeling frustrated that you can’t seem to catch a break?

Image from:

–Trying to escape?
–Put some distance between you and your challenges?
–Want to move out of town, move out of state?


–The Divine may have other plans.
–YOU may have made other plans in Incarnation Hall.  

What is Incarnation Hall?  You may ask?

lt is where you, as a soul looks down and chooses the life you will lead, the challenges you will face and the people you will meet along the way.  The entirety of your life is chosen by you BEFORE you incarnate.  It’s called predestination and you CHOOSE what happens based on past experience or past lives.


Returning to the top of this column where I ask those several questions:
Are you feeling trapped etc.


You may have no control over changes you WANT to make if you have made the decision to stay where you are during your time in Incarnation Hall.
–It may be that you were a drifter in a past life and you want the experience of staying in one place in this life.
–It may be that you ran from all of your conflicts in a past life and didn’t face those challenges and you realized before you chose your current life that you needed to face the challenges in this life to move beyond them in the next life

Everything is a learning experience in each life you lead.


There are no mistakes.
There are no defeats.


There are simply lessons to learn.  And the ONLY way to learn the lessons being shown us is to keep repeating them until we move past them.  We are given ample opportunity to learn with obstacles being placed in our path.
–You want that job?  Something stands in your way.  A traffic jam makes you late to the interview and someone else gets the job.
–You want that house you’re eyeing?

Too bad, but something better is coming down the pike for you.  It’s like George Clooney said in my column:
Your Life Is Like A River
Little Anne Frank wants to be a high school teacher? Tough Anne. That’s not your destiny.

Your life has been predestined. And if you attempt to make changes that aren’t in the cards for you, you will find obstacles put in your path, debris put in your river and no amount of clearing will make your plans come to fruition if you hadn’t forecast them long before you incarnated.


So, I guess what I’m saying here is:
If you are frustrated because you feel trapped,
If you feel as if you aren’t making a difference,


Close your eyes and remember this is all part of the plan.
Life is one long lesson and you never get it ENTIRELY right.
The concept behind Reincarnation is to learn from previous lives and move closer to the Divine/God/Source.


And we learn by making changes to old habits, to previous challenges.

So once again if you feel as if you are stuck and you can’t escape your own shadow, just keep in mind that this may WELL HAVE been the plan all along.


I completely understand by my telling you this it does nothing to help the current challenges you are facing, because they will STILL be there when you look around, but if you can keep in mind this is simply a process we all must go through, understanding that, MAY make life JUST a bit easier.


I wish everyone nothing but peace joy and happiness.
Look for it and you will surely find it.


Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.


Always Together

I’ve spoken about this countless times here before:

You do of course understand that everyone close to you, everyone in your inner circle has ALWAYS been in your life:
Your best friend?
Your brother?
Your sister?

They are with you in this incarnation. And they will be with you in EVERY future incarnation. No one is EVER lost.  These people are in your soul group.

Image from:
Galactic Connection

Someone who is your best friend today may have been your brother or your sister during a past incarnation.
Your husband?
Your wife?

Maybe they were your best friend in a previous lifetime.  If you gravitate towards someone in this lifetime it is ENTIRELY probable you were together previously.

Does someone you feel emotionally connected to ever tell you:
You are like the brother or sister I never had?

Perhaps somewhere deep in their subconscious they are recalling a past incarnation when you were indeed genetically connected.  Never feel let down when someone tells you this, for you were together in a previous incarnation and you will surely always be together.

Our souls are magnetic.  We are attracted to each other on a deep level and those of us in our soul groups will ALWAYS find each other.  The time we locate our soulmates (those in our soul groups) may not coordinate with when WE want to find each other.  Rest assured however, if someone is in our group, we will find each other when the time is necessary.

There is ONLY one who coordinates THAT schedule and we cannot change HIS course.  Just like we can’t change our birthday and our transition day.  Think you won’t find that person?  Maybe you’re not scheduled to find him in this your most recent lifetime.  Everything that happens in life is based on a schedule.  And as I said above, ONLY one knows what that schedule is.

Perhaps you are meant to go through this incarnation riding solo.  It doesn’t mean you are less worthy.  Maybe when you and your soulmate incarnated this time one or both of you decided to explore life on your own.  Maybe you decided to simply explore life together as BEST friends and not be physically entwined.
–Isn’t it better to know that you’ve always been together regardless of the interaction?
–Isn’t it better to know that you will always BE together?
–Does it really make a difference what the relationship is, as long as you’re always together?


Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.


Akashic Record

Image from:


There is a chance I MAY lose some readers here, psychologically as well as physically.  Some of you may feel as if I’ve gone too far off the deep end.

A few weeks ago while grocery shopping I ran into an old friend of mine who has been reading Wisdom and Life for sometime.  We spent about twenty minutes in one of the grocery aisles catching up and talking about all things spiritual.  All three of my blogs took a hiatus over the Christmas/New Year period and Cynthia mentioned how much she missed them.


That’s always so gratifying to hear because without that feedback I never know who is reading what I write unless someone comments at any number of places I post my content.  Somehow we arrived at the topic of inspiration and how we receive it.  As you all know, I feel I am simply a conduit for Wisdom and Life.  Cynthia mentioned a book (and now of course, do you think I recall the title?  Of course not!) that discussed The Akashic Records.  This is where I may lose some of you…


…Esoteric theory has it that The Akashic Record is an ethereal hall that houses all knowledge, spiritual, physical and otherwise.  (To show how connected everything truly is, that same afternoon when returning home, I flipped on the television and watched a program that spoke about The Akashic Record.  If not for the fact that I’m centered in this paradigm, I would probably be shocked, surprised, stunned that the VERY thing Cynthia and I discussed now appeared again in my purview.)


Is it possible that what we are tapping into when we say we are in the flow, when we say The Divine is guiding us, when use words such as intuition, inspiration, clairvoyance, what we are REALLY tapping into is the Akashic Record?  Some of you who have been following Wisdom and Life as a result of finding me through Spiritual and Religious means my find this particular column a bit uncomfortable, may find it somewhat outside your comfort zone. may think I’ve forsaken my spirituality for something more esoteric.  That couldn’t be further from the truth.


Why can’t there be a Divinity that created The Akashic Record?  Why does anything with an extraterrestrial nature have to be shunned by the Religious and Spiritual?  I believe Science and Religion can indeed be cooperative; in fact I’d go so far as to say they MUST be cooperative.  I feel that God did create EVERYTHING we see and have in this world.  I also feel God needed help in creating what we have.


Something out of nothing?


There MUST have been some spark to create something out of nothing and that’s where Science enters.  Whether as some believe humanity was seeded from deep space, whether God created humanity in HIS image, HE MUST have had help.


What of the race that exists on the other side of this Universe?
–Do you believe they are grappling with the same challenges we are here?
–Do you believe they think they are alone?
–Do you believe they are wondering about their nature?  Where they arrived from?


Why can’t there be a Divinity who created something out of nothing and also created many worlds out of nothing?  I’ve said it before:
I think ANYONE who believes humanity is alone in the vast universe and believes humanity is at the top of the food chain is VASTLY egotistical.


I’m not saying I believe The Akashic Record exists.

What I am saying is:
Be open to EVERYTHING.


Would you want to be the person who denied the existence of something so steadfastly then one day find how wrong you truly were?  All I’m saying is:
Be open.
Take off those spiritual blinders you are always wearing.


You may just find something that has been at the periphery of your vision your entire life.


Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
