Switch To High Beam

We’ve been arriving steadily as planned
Each year our numbers grow strong
As each generation brings forth more
Lighted Souls, on Earth we will throng

Yes, it’s true all Souls are Lighted
The All-That-Is is part of us all
But some Lights are buried so deep
Hidden from sight they flicker so small

We’ve come with a pure Inner Knowing
That Love is the only true way to be
No matter the way of the world
Unconditional Love we want all to see

Growing up we tended to stand out
Not necessarily in a ‘good’ way
Our truth made us seem to shout
“Look at me, I’ve something to say!”

We’ve come to change the system
Ingrained in all those who sleep
Through life, by following the herd
The status quo they unknowingly keep

For we have been ruled for millennia
By an elite force who’ve had control
Of everything in life we seem to need
They cast a veil over the sleeper’s Soul

These ‘Elite’ are the ones whose Lights
Are buried so deep down within
They’ve craved and perpetuated negativity
And praised all misfortune and sin

They’ve controlled in a myriad of ways
Their fingers were in all the pots
Religion, media, education, government
Medicine and money: they’ve called the shots

But now the tsunami has changed
The wave of Love and Light is a pure force
Much more powerful than the dark
We’re prepared and set on our course

The time has come for us all
To shine our Lights like never before
This is the reason we came here
Wayshowers to open the bedroom door

Some sleepers are just only napping
Turning on our Light will bring them Awake
But others so deep in their slumber
Will balk from the nightmare of mistake

Our Loving Light will gently ease them
As they finally stretch and open their eyes
Learning they really do have the power
And releasing all established believed lies

Switch To High Beam Beloved Lightworkers
Let’s finally Light up this world and ignite
The Soul Light in all others to truly shine
For United our future sparkles Star-Bright

About This Poem

After posting my last poem, Nothing Is By Chance, I had a lovely comment from Amira (BodyAndSoulNourishmentBlog) who I have been very much synchronistically aligned with since she started posting my poems several months ago. As I was writing my reply to her comment, I knew that what I was writing would make a very good theme for a poem.

     “Another point that made me go ahead and share this one is that Blossom’s messages teach that we ‘Lightworkers’ will be needed when everything comes to light about what has been truly going on. In the confusion of those who were in the dark, our lights must shine to show the way – it’s what we came here for. And it makes sense not to wait till the last minute to turn on our light.”

The amazing thing is that this has happened several times before in our comments back and forth! And as the last poems states.. Nothing Is By Chance, so I got on straight away with writing it. The words flowed quickly – apart from having to stop to check on the precise definition of some words to ensure I was using them correctly. I always find this part so fascinating as words that I don’t normally use come to my mind and I think I know the definition, but check to make sure, and find they are a perfect fit! 

I had the title ‘Shine Your Light’ at the start, but after writing it I wanted to emphasize that it’s now time for us to shine even brighter, so I changed it to ‘Switch To Full Beam.’ However, something led me to check the definition of ‘full beam’ and I discovered it is a British term and the American is ‘high beam,’ so that seemed a better fit!

Nothing Is By Chance

Title Quote: Eileen Caddy

Why do the ‘bad’ things happen
Causing shedding of many tears?
Atrocities, neglect, futile wars
Still going on throughout the years

Why are innocent little babies born
With problems right at the very start?
Or ‘lost’ even before the first breath
Breaking open their parents heart

Why do some people have to struggle
Through a life of torment and dread?
For them nothing ever seems to go right
Poverty and debt looms over many a head

Why do fatal diseases like cancer
Exponentially continue to grow?
While cures are available, but not used
Unless you’re alternatively ‘in the know’

Karma is one of the reasons
For challenges we all must face
But, we make the choice before birth
To learn with experience and good grace

For our Souls are on an eternal journey
To experience and grow through life
Reincarnating in a myriad of roles
We need it all, including the strife

The Law Of Attraction is also paramount
An all-encompassing force, a powerful magnet
Negativity or positivity breeds and grows
Claiming all thoughts and beliefs that fit

We are powerful Spiritual Beings
Radiating our energy all of the time
Absorbing others emotional rays
Can lead us to love or even to crime

Together we can unite our strength
Experiments have proved in the past
Groups of people meditating on peace
Plummets crime, a true love blast!

As a species we are Awakening
To the extent of our true power
At long last The Light is toppling
The Dark’s encompassing prison tower

The Illuminate-elite have finally lost the war
They have raged through countless years
Controlling and manipulating us all
By producing lies and illusions of fears

Their grip on our lives has been brutal
Overshadowing from the cradle to the grave
Now knowing we are pure Souls of Light
We no longer submit to be their slave

The rocky days ahead may be tough
As their ghastly deeds all spill out
But nip in the bud any anger or revenge
Compassionate forgiveness needs to be felt

For in the grand old scheme of it all
There has to be those to play the part
Of the ‘bad’ guys, for the good to rise
So love them all unconditionally from your heart

About This Poem

Well, Nothing Is By Chance… but this poem took me totally by surprise!

I wanted to write a poem so I chose a quote that jumped out at me from my long list. As I made myself a coffee and toast, I began to think of how it would shape and knew it would obviously be about coincidences and synchronicity. Not wanting to start writing without my usual prayer of thankfulness and asking for guidance, I first checked my emails while I had my breakfast, which led me to read a few articles from a blog I had been sent a link to a couple of days previously (remember Nothing Is By Chance!)

Years ago I followed many blogs etc.. that dealt with the dominating elite of our world, of how we are controlled and manipulated. But, I eventually realized that as I chose to focus my attention on the positive I had to let go of keeping the wrong-doings so fully in my sight. The only blog I continue to follow, from back then, is Blossom Goodchild because her channellings from The Federation Of Light are so full of love and upliftment and sing so true to me. And it was a link from Blossom that led me to the blog of Deus Nexus. I read the article she linked to about observatories closing and began to browse the blog. I immediately realized it was the type of site I used to follow, containing all the latest news about what is going on, but there was also a balance of ‘good’ stuff too, so I went to take a look at the ‘About’ page. There I read the poem ‘Consider A Tree’ by David Nova (the author of the blog) and I immediately knew this was a synchronistic link. The poem is so beautiful (please do read it) I just had to ask if I could share it on my Spiritual Quotes To Live By site. (permission was granted)

From their I found that David is the author of a metaphysical fiction series, so I checked Amazon and read the beginning of his first novel and was hooked! So I bought it. I haven’t had a lot of time for reading since then, so I am only a few chapters in, but it is very intriguing.

So, because of this synchronistic link the darker side had crept back to my attention.

Going back to the creation of this poem..
After praying for guidance and visualizing the completed poem ‘out there’ uplifting people around the world, I got ready to write… I read the quote again and thought of coincidences, but nothing came to my mind, which is very unusual for me. I read the quote again and thought, ‘What am I going to write?!!!’ And the questions of the first four verses flowed quickly. As I was writing them I was thinking this is way too negative! – I try not to have anything negative in my poems unless it is really needed to tell the story or help explain a concept. But, I knew that as there were questions, I would go on to answer them.

The answer verses followed easily but then I was writing about the ‘dark side’ in more detail than I would like. I finished the poem and didn’t even bother to print it out, I just let it go, thinking it was all too negative. Usually when I am not happy with a poem I continue straight on to write another with the same quote, I was thinking this would be so easy to do with this one, as I already knew I could write about coincidences. However, nothing flowed, so I gave up.

The following day I had another attempt to write a poem with the same quote, but still nothing!  It was interesting that I just couldn’t seem to get the words for a quote that I knew I could write so much about! So, I re-read the first one and gave it some thought…

If I truly believe – and I do – that ‘Nothing Is By Chance‘ – then I was supposed to write this poem and not one about coincidences.  And, if I truly believe in what I wrote – and I do – then I should share it… negativity and all!

By the way, because of the way this one developed, I also believe that once this poem is published I will easily write another using the same quote.. so watch out for that one too!

You Are The Creator Of Your Own Life Experience

Title Quote: Abraham-Hicks

The Law of Attraction is becoming well known
We are all searching for the way
To bring more joy and love to our lives
To appreciate each and every day

You are the creator of your own life experience
Can be difficult at first to take on
‘How can that be true for me,’ most would say
‘I wouldn’t create everything in my life that’s gone wrong’

But the Law of Attraction is a powerful force
Which we apply just by our thought
It knows no difference, yes or no are the same
So everything to your life you have brought

Always remember a positive thought
Is more stronger than a negative one
And keep on reaching for better thoughts
This ‘work’ is on-going, it’s never done

It doesn’t matter what’s happened in your past
All that matters is this moment right now
By accepting yourself where you are
You can go on to create a life that will – Wow

To create the beautiful life of your dreams
Just focus on following your bliss
If you let go and are open to let it all flow
‘Coincidental’ opportunities you will not miss

Each day bring your focus on all
The love, joy and beauty around
Live each moment with inner peace
And Heaven on Earth you will have found

Trina Graves – 12th May 2011


About This Poem

I have learned and come to understand how the Law Of Attraction works mostly through the teachings of Abraham-Hicks, which is why I am drawn to using their quotes as titles and themes of my poems. This quote is one that that many find hard to get their head around when first hearing of the Law Of Attraction, and needs full understanding to implement into everyday life. 

By giving attention to anything you don’t like, or want, in your life, you are actually going to bring yourself more of the same! Of course, it’s impossible to never think of, or see anything you don’t like, but by being aware of your thoughts and feelings about things, enables you to choose whether to continue with the thought or change it to something that feels better. In fact, knowing what you don’t want, is kind of essential to knowing what you do want, just don’t spend too much time on the negative!

The View

This poem was written for my parents 60th Wedding Anniversary earlier this year.

With family and friends around
On a March day you were bound
Together, young and in love
Blessed in church by God above

You vowed to always stay together
Through sunshine and stormy weather
Life would throw all aspects at you
But your love would pull you through

Now sixty years have gone by
Speeding time does surely fly
And here you are together still
After surmounting many a-rocky hill

Standing steadfast where you are
From that hill-top you can see far
You’ve created a spectacular view
With the love that came from you

Generations have blossomed and grown
From the love that you have sown
Each a blessing, flowering in your light
Ever present, ever bright

Scattered around you, each flower grows
All different: cosmos, forget-me-not, rose
Beautiful blooms growing strong
Seeding more as time moves on

Some little buds don’t really know you are there
Watching over them because you care
But still, you send them your light and love
From your vantage point on the hill above

God bless you for all you’ve done
Creating the view since your love begun
Now rest and enjoy the outstanding view
Eternal love and blessings, to you two

About This Poem

As mentioned above, I wrote this for my parents 60th Wedding Anniversary on 22nd March 2018. As with all couples they’ve had their ups and downs throughout the years but have remained steadfast in their love to see them through.

Below is the front of the card I made for them (with the poem inside) showing their four children, nine grandchildren and twenty great-grandchildren. As I am sure with most families, as they grow and expand out into the world the early closeness with grandparents changes as lives move on with another generation. Get-togethers don’t happen as often so great-grandchildren don’t know their great-grandparents as well as they know their grandparents. But, the great-grandparents always love to hear about and see (if only pictures) all of their little blossoms.

When They Placed You In My Arms

Title Quote: When They Placed You In My Arms,
You Slipped Into My Heart. (Unknown)

When they placed you in my arms
For the first time after your birth
Is my most precious memory
Of my life here on this Earth

After endless months of waiting
Anxious that all would be well
Relief mixed with anticipation
As I floated under your spell

My love for you had grown stronger
Each day through pregnancy
In that moment it exploded
Awakening the Core of me

I gazed tenderly into your eyes
Then mine watered with a tear
The pure bliss of the moment
As I embraced you, my dear

The weight of your little body
As I held you close and tight
Feeling your physical presence
Sensing your true Spirit Light

The warmth of your precious form
Now tangible at long last
Melted time’s candle to me
You became my future and my past

The sheer miracle of life
I possessed in my arms
Blessed always to be
Captivated by your charms

When they placed you in my arms
You slipped into my heart
Through Eternity we are bound
Entwined Souls to never part

Trina Graves – 24th February 2017


About This Poem

As I say in this poem (and have mentioned before) this is my most treasured memory and is what I recall whenever I want to feel a strong sense of love and upliftment, it never fails to bring a smile to my face and warmth in my heart.

We Only Part To Meet Again (1)

Title Quote: John Gay

When my time comes to leave
I really do truly believe
The goodbyes may be hard, but then
We Only Part To Meet Again

I will leave my overcoat behind
No use to me anymore because I’ll find
Expansion, Freedom, Unlimited Love
When my Spirit is released to the up above

It might be easier for you to think of me
As gone on a journey across the sea
To a far away land as in times gone by
Before inventions enabled us to fly

Although we won’t be able to phone
You can still reach me when you’re alone
In Love and Peace, Uplifted in your heart
It will be as though we were never apart

Have an Uplifted Open mind and I’ll be there
The Energy of Love means we can share
Think of what to say to me and you will find
I can talk to you through thoughts in your mind

Remember me by the love we shared
And know for you I always deeply cared
Our love goes on through all Eternity
So together forever we will always be

Trina Graves – 24th November 2016


About The Poem

I love to write uplifting sympathy poems as I have no doubt whatsoever that we continue on, so I want to share my beliefs with whoever is drawn to my words. None of us know when our last breath will be (in this life) and so I also want to leave words of love and spiritual wisdom for my family and friends when my time comes to go home. This quote from John Gay (1695 – 1732) fitted perfectly for my more personal words.

I write poems using quotes for my Spiritual Quotes To Live By website and sometimes after finishing a poem I know there is more for the quote and write another, which is why the title has a (1). I will share the other poem at a later date.

Human Beings Can Alter Their Lives

Title Quote: William James
Human Beings Can Alter Their Lives By Altering Their Attitude Of Mind

If there is anything in your life
That you would like to change
What is going on in your mind
Is what you need to re-arrange

For it is the thoughts you think
That always creates your reality
Bound with powerful emotions
You attract everything you see

Continued thoughts become beliefs
The attraction will speed up fast
What you believe is true for you
Will manifest as if a spell is cast

Your thoughts, beliefs and emotions
Consistently shape the life you live
So there’s an aspect to consider
Are they positive or negative?

To work out which is the one
Isn’t always simple to decide
So does it feel good to you?
Your emotions are your guide

Everyone has negative thoughts
But the key is not to linger there
Use them as helpful stepping stones
Along your path to become Aware

By focusing on your thoughts
And realising some are negative
Lets you know what you don’t want
So you can find a better alternative

To change those negative thoughts
When faced with trouble and pain
Find a thought that feels a little better
It’s an easy way to relieve the strain

If you can continue to always look
For the thought that feels better to you
Your vibration will incessantly rise higher
Lifting you up and getting you through

Keeping positive as much as possible
Helps you to feel good every day
You then radiate your beneficial energy
To everyone, in what you do and say

You’ll attract all the good things in life
Love, beauty, wisdom and happiness
Appreciating simple wonders each day
You will feel so Heavenly Blessed

Your thoughts, beliefs and emotions
Are the devices with which you create
And to bring an abundance of the joys
You need to give thanks and appreciate

Whatever you experience in this life
Your attitude is one of these aspects
Positive or negative, train of thought
From your mind, your world reflects

Trina Graves – 11th Dec 2016


About This Poem

Along with William James (1842 – 1910) other well-known people throughout history have been consistently teaching us how our lives are shaped by our thoughts and attitude… 

All that we are is a result of what we have thought.
The mind is everything.
What we think we become.
Buddha
624BC – 543BC

People get disturbed not so much by events,
but by the view they take of them.
Epictetus
55 – 135

Our life is what our thoughts make it.
Marcus Aurelius
121 – 180

Whether the events in our life are good or bad,
greatly depends on the way we perceive them.
Michel de Montaigne
1475 – 1564

The mind is its own place,
and in itself can make a Heaven of hell,
a hell of Heaven.
John Milton
1608 – 1674

Nothing can stop a man
with the right mental attitude
from achieving his goal.
Thomas Jefferson
1743 – 1826

Whether you think you can
or think you can’t..
you are right!
Henry Ford
1863 – 1947

Attitude is a little thing
that makes a big difference.
Winston Churchill
1874 – 1965

Outer changes always begin with
an inner change of attitude.
Albert Einstein
1879 – 1955

Change the way you look at things
and the things you look at change.
Wayne Dyer
1940 – 2015

Most of us know it’s better to think positively than negatively, (although some people believe if they think negative they won’t be disappointed when the positive outcome doesn’t happen!) but, knowing you should be positive and doing so when faced with a negative thought or situation is something many do not know how to achieve. So this is something I wanted to convey in this poem.

Always seeking for a better feeling thought was something I learned from following the teachings of Abraham-Hicks. For me, Abraham speaking through Esther Hicks have been the greatest teachers of living a life of love, peace and joy.
