I already had a question Before I went in my mind To visit the beach, and James Always helpful, and kind
Should I inspirationally write Home alone, as I loved to do? Or venture out much more Healing, also called me too
We were stood on a cliff top Looking down on the beach Many people, living their lives But I knew my Light could reach
In this place, I’m seen alone Although I know, I’ll never be Because the world of Spirit Is always present, Eternally
“Your words can carry down Floating to the people below Some will pick them up But the method is rather slow
You can send out your words By other means, spreading out Even found on other beaches But their reception can meet doubt
To truly make an impact Means going down there, to be With the people on the beaches Your Presence they will see
You may not reach as far But your Presence will be felt Radiating your Love and Light Can bring other’s blocks to melt
As for writing or healing It matters not the way Just Be the Light you are Shining Divine Love every day
Living from the Heart Being Present in the Joy You will be Divinely guided To the tools you can employ
Freewill, no judgement Will ever come to be Whatever you decide You’re Loved Unconditionally”

About This Poem
As a young child I was extremely shy, my parents could not take me anywhere without my screaming tantrums! My only memory of this is of holding my bent arm up to my face, covering it so no one could see me. I began to change upon starting school and over the years my confidence improved. However, I have always been someone who is much more relaxed, happiest and peaceful when I am at home.
I have no concern about being alone, although I do appreciate that this could be different if I was living alone for years on end. I enjoy doing so many things that there is always something to do.I guess I have always been a ‘loner,’ but it took many years for me to accept this as I tried to fit in. So, to me this vision was very meaningful as I often questioned my preference to being alone rather than ‘out there.’ I knew I was being guided to push myself to be more socialable. But, as the years passed I remained in my comfort zone.
This theme then came up again in a vision from 2019, On or Off The Train is my poem about this one. As it happened after myBirthday Revelation it is not James but Jesus mentioned in the poem.
Still, I have not ventured ‘out there,’ the craziness since 2020 made it even harder to spend time with those I love, and along with no transport for nine months, I have been even more alone than before! However, I do believe that our world is changing and at some point I will be getting ‘out there’ and these past visions were given to me for guidance and all will become clear in Diving Timing.
One mind visit, with three visions It had never been like that before Drawn To The Sea, Footprints Of Light Then Jesus showed me one more…
We were sitting on a train A large window at our side The scenery so beautiful Moving so fast on our ride
Relaxing in comfy seats With like-minded passengers Chatting of the sights we saw A friendly group of travelers
Cities then countries passing by We got to see a vast amount Of the Earth’s changing lands Too many to even count!
We saw it all, passing by With only a fleeting glance Hurrying to the next destination Experiences?… No chance!
Jesus stood, the train stopped We got off, to go and explore Life is lived by walking the Earth Not staying behind any door
It was a plain, barren land Many people, without much But hearts full of compassion Love so thick you could touch
People flocked around Jesus He Radiated pure Divineness They had no doubts to overcome His Sacred Energy awareness
Among the people is real life Giving help in any way Even just a friendly smile Can brighten someone’s day
Quality more than quantity Less often means so much more Time given to another, a true gift If Love and Light is your core
Physical connection with all life And Mother Nature too Allows true growth of Spirit And God to flow through
Trina Graves – August 2020
About This Poem
Drawn To The Seaand Footprints Of Light are the other poems I have written from my ‘vision’ of 3rd February 2019. This was a couple of weeks after I had discovered that it was Jesus I had been meeting in visions on and off for almost twenty years. My poem A Birthday Revelation tells of this ‘discovery.
I’d listened to lots of Kryon Through Lee Carroll channelling Talking of the new energies And the joy they would bring
With these questions on my mind I knew what I needed to do Go within and visit with Jesus And ask about Kryon too!
It was one year since I’d discovered The identity of my vision guide For twenty years to me it was James Feeling unworthy made me hide
In my quiet mind I would wait And see where I would go To meet and gain answers Knowing it all would flow
I affirmed He was in my Heart Then ‘saw’ us strolling along a beach I asked if Kryon’s words were truth In all Kryon came here to teach
We were stood at the sea’s edge Looking over towards the land A very dark storm was forming Looming on the right it panned
I thought, that’s not a good sign Could this mean Kryon is untrue? Then Jesus said “Stand strong Rooted in Gaia, you know what to do”
“Shine your own Divine Light” Words of Jesus and also Kryon I did what I came here to do On Earth, to connect my Light ‘on’
People came from all directions To shelter under our Love and Light Jesus moved behind me to show My own Light shone so bright
As more and more people came Jesus faded, (although always there) My Light grew stronger still As I felt the people begin to share
Some Awakened to their own Light As the beach filled with hundreds more Coming to shelter in the Light Uniting on Earth like never before
I remembered the storm coming our way I’d forgotten, focusing on the Light With just a quick glance I saw It was still there, on the right
I then ‘knew’ it couldn’t touch us While focused, our Light shining Then the storm began to clear Blue skies rapidly returning
The people were happy now to go Back from where they all came Many now able to hold the Light Awakening people to Light, my aim
Trina Graves – 4th June 2021
About This Poem
Having this vision in January 2020, at that time I thought it was all just about Lightworkers shining our Light through whatever was going to be happening through the years ahead. From my previous visions and guided poems I knew we were in a time of Awakening and change, but I was totally unaware of the very dark storm that was looming just ahead for us all!
I, along with an ever increasing amount of others, believe that what we have experienced since early last year has not been about a virus, but about Awakening the people of our world to their own power. We are eternal Spiritual Beings and those of us here on Earth chose our path (before birth) for this auspicious time of either moving into a Higher Vibrational New Earth or leaving this present reality, gifting others with our experience to open their hearts and minds.
I have a page listing all of my ‘Vision’ poems if you would like to read more.
Visiting Jesus, a vision in my mind Only recently back then, did I find His true identity revealed at last Connecting many dots of my past
I’d visited just once since that day ‘Stained Glass Poems’ explains the way Now I wanted more confirmation And a hopefully some inspiration
Giving no thought to where we’d meet We were walking by the sea, barefeet I felt at ease and wondered why I didn’t feel in awe or at all shy
With no words He then told me how The time was right, I’m ready now My vibration raised, now we’d talk With more significance, as we walk
I asked why so many people, like me Are drawn so often to be at the sea Looking out at the beautiful scene He told of hidden depths, unseen
The vast expanse, a precious part Of Mother Earth, right from the start Water, so essential to all living health Magnificent oceans.. abundant wealth
Teeming with life of every size Largest mammal or too small for eyes Unfathomable, mysterious, tides that turn From whales and dolphins we can learn
Pulsating waves forever flow Balance, give and take, they show Wisdom evident and pure beauty Fresh and alive, our vibrant sea
Land and sea, two domains Duality on our Earth remains Senses enlivened when we are near The air is different, is so clear
Winds of the sea blow away Doubts and fears, as we stay Near the shore, there to be With the elements, in harmony
A powerful magnet with the sun People flock to relax, be at One With these mighty attributes of Earth A sense of wonder and true worth
A chance for people to get away Clear their minds and be at play No matter what age, most will be Happy and content when by the sea
Trina Graves – 9th May 2020
About This Poem
As a child and into adulthood I never went to the seaside very often. Living quite a distance from the sea it would only be something to do for a holiday, which were few and far between! However, over the past ten years or so I have felt ‘drawn to the sea,’ which grows ever stronger as the years pass!
The photo below (taken several years ago) is of West Wittering, UK. This is one of my favourite beaches (so far) it has a wonderful shallow sea and soft sandy walk. The four closest people are my son and three of my grandchildren.
Just incase you are new to my ‘Vision’ poems I have a page where they are all listed in date order. The first one, Insight tells of how it all began – and is still so profound to me! – and A Birthday Revelation tells of me discovering it was Jesus I had been ‘meeting’ since 1999.
The ‘visit’ in this poem was different than previously because I was given three different visions that would become four poems: My Footprints In Sand, Footprints Of Light and On Or Off The Train (to be added) – along with this one.
It had been exactly a month Since Jesus revealed to me It was actually His presence I’d visit, often by the sea
Not in the physical world But in my own mind’s eye For many years we’d met Certainly time does fly!
Now I’d woken early For no reason at all So I thought I’d visit Which place would I recall?
Beach, woods, church Various places we’d met Then I was on a path The meaning clearly set
The path of my lifetime With Jesus by my side We turned to look back Melding thoughts, my guide
I knew I could go back And walk the same old ground Freewill always to choose No judgment to be found
But my intent to tread Ever forward, learning more Was the path I had chosen So many years before
I then knew I could stay Around the area we now were Surrounded by such beauty Not many changes would occur
Of course, this I rejected Even though it gave comfort Everything the same meant I wasn’t likely to get hurt
Now looking straight ahead I could see a different way The path twisted and turned So many directions to play
We walked onwards, further To view a little more Delightful sights to see Many experiences to explore
At that moment I knew I needed to elevate This path wouldn’t allow A Higher Vibrational rate
Instantly to my left Was a staircase of stone It looked beautifully ancient Would I have to go alone?
Jesus went up a few steps And stretched His hand out Asking me to choose my path With this I had no doubt!
Climbing, I counted the steps Stopping at number ten A wider platform to view But I wanted to climb again
Onwards, another ten steps Easier now to climb We reached a Higher Plateau With a different sense of time
Seemingly in the clouds They parted so I could see Many Spiritual Beings I could now meet with freely
I then looked down below To view my path of old From this Higher Perspective Much wisdom to behold
Different paths onwards I could also now view Where they would lead If I chose to follow through
I now had the choice On which level to be Needing access to the lower To be a Light for humanity
I could be in two places The High and the low Mind and Spirit elevated While physically down below
Shining my Light and Love To all those on our Earth Dimensions combining Showing truth of self-worth
On the Earth’s 3D level Duality is very dense Drama and negative aspects Their grip is so intense
Positivity and the Light Is always present somewhere But it takes intentional choice To be Awake and Aware
On the 5D level Claiming pure Sovereignity God within, ever showing The future for all humanity
Trina Graves – 13th July 2020
About This Poem
So much has happened to change our world since this vision in February 2019, and even since writing the poem five months ago. If I were writing it now the ending would speak of how we are all now well on the path to our 5d world or New Earth.
I, and many others, believe there will be strong Light energies brought to Earth through the alignment of planets happening tomorrow, the 21st December Solstice.
Of course there will be many who are not ready to accept the Light to assist in raising their vibration, we always have freewill and we are all walking our own path at our own pace. But, there is a very great number, as never before, now ready, and even more will be awakening from and after this solstice.
I would like to point out that these ‘vision’ poems are written as personal to me because that is the way the vision is presented. However, I am well aware that they are also intended for everyone to view as a vision for themselves, if it resonates with them. Until 2019 I never intended to share these visions (apart from my first one Insight) but after it was shown to me who I was with, I was also guided to write most of these visions as poems to share.
The Joy Of Christmas
Here are links to my Christmas poems and there will be some new ones posted soon. Peace On Earth & The Everlasting Light, to me seem very relevant for this Christmas.
This was one of my visits That really made me smile As in my mind I go to See my Guide, once in a while
As I walked over to James Who was stood by the sea I realised my Mother Was walking next to me
When my Mum saw James She was elated, and ran To embrace him, overjoyed Not at all in my plan!
They obviously knew each other Friends re-Uniting, so precious I knew I was not needed I walked on, no need for fuss
Seeing Rachael up ahead I met with her to have a talk Though nothing I remember Just that we had a walk
Mum and James hugged goodbye We’d go home together, I thought But then my Dad appeared More amusement to me brought
Linking arms, happily chatting Oblivious to me being there Home they went joyously An odd vision, to share?
At the time, I just thought This is strange and amusing I didn’t even talk to James No meaning, did it bring
But still, I wrote it down I’d been told to keep track It would be just over four years Until I needed it brought back
In a revelation early this year Jesus showed Himself as James Feeling unworthy, I had doubts Not just about the names
This odd vision came to me As a confirmation I needed Along with others, all in the past Divine Timing evidence seeded
It’s well known to view Jesus As a Loving, Faithful friend But the significance to me Aided my acceptance to mend
Jesus was indeed a Loving part Of my Mothers life-long past She’d felt and seen His Presence An impact to truly last
The overjoyment, ecstasy Was for no ordinary friend Now I truly understand Everything’s a Divine Blend
Trina Graves – 19th November 2019
About This Poem
Not much to say about this one really. However, If you would like to know more about this story, then my poems that link to it are: Insight – about my first ‘visit.’ Why I wrote this strange vision down even though I thought it didn’t mean anything is covered in My Catalyst. And, James revealing himself as Jesus is what my poem A Birthday Revelation is all about.
Getting Into The Joy Of Christmas
This year it is more important than ever before for those of us who celebrate Christmas to lift our hearts. I believe we are heading for a wonderful change to our Earth, but how easy it will be for everyone depends on their vibration. So being loving and joyous is key!
I haven’t written any new poems for Christmas (yet!), but there are many previously written.
Only two days had gone by When I felt the urge to try Another visit in my mind To my guide, Lovingly kind
We were high up, overlooking the sea I thanked James for guiding me Gratitude for his compassionate care Knowing his presence is always there
We then transported to a wood Surrounded by nature, we stood Taking in the beauty and sound Trees, birds and flowers all around
James then made me aware That I was not really there Still at the beach, in my head And in my body, laying in bed
Hearing the ticking of my clock Simultaneous with waves on a rock Birds tweeted around the wood’s stream Blended together, what did this mean?
The next moment I was a child A girl playing outside, running wild Then an adult man, I became Was I one-and-the-same?
Immediately I was an old lady dying I felt the release, no more trying I flowed to the Love, All-Encompassing Remembering the Joy it did bring
These experiences passed in a blink Giving me no time to stop and think I just knew James was showing me There are No Limits to ‘Be’
I made some notes in my journal Knowing this guidance was eternal On Time and dimensional sight Divine perspective shows the Light
This visit, very strange and odd Different from all others, I’d trod And now four years have passed I understand it better, at last
For time is not linear at all It’s just how us humans can recall And live in Earth’s dense duality Limiting our pure Divinity
But in the New Energies now pour And if you have unlocked your door To allow your Awakening to begin Your Divinity will start to sing
Trina Graves – 14th January 2020
About This Poem
This was certainly the most extra-ordinary of all my vision/visualizations.. (so far!) It happened very quickly and I didn’t really think much of it at that time, five years ago, but thank goodness I did write it down.
As you can see, I wrote the poem at the beginning of this year, a little before the craziness began. I believe the last two verse are very relevant to this, never before, time we are in. The ‘New Energies’ that have enabled us to reach enough of a Higher Vibration to change our world for the better, have this year amped up, and as each day passes more and more people are Awakening.
Many channellers speak of their complete certainity that we have already ‘won’ the battle of dark vs Light in non-linear time, we just have to keep on keeping on to reach this momentous point when the New Day will dawn where Peace, Love, Compassion, Truth, Light and Joy will be the focus of the greatest majority of humanity.
Update 4th June – The Great Awakening
As you can read above, this was one of my visions that I understood better after some years had passed. As with another vision poem (The Answers Are Within) it was written just before the PLANdemic started, but now has more significance with The Great Awakening going on where we are discovering we are powerful Spiritual Beings, time is not linear and together we are creating our New Earth of Love, Light, Truth, Peace & Joy.
For many years I’ve visualized Meeting my guide on a beach Or some other beautiful place My imagination would reach
Almost always I would start In a room made in my mind And then I’d go outside To see what I would find
This day the room seemed stale So I opened the doors to fresh air Feeling the need to clear and clean Instantly, with imaginations flair
The room now spick-and-span I thought I’d venture outside To meet James on the beach Instead, on the bed I lie..d
Thinking, this was strange Why didn’t I want to go? Then, in the door came James But, he didn’t say “Hello”
He just stood there, looking sad Despondent, staring ahead Oblivious to my presence Now sitting up, on the bed
‘Oh no! Has someone died’ My first thought came to me Immediately I knew, not so For he would react differently
With no such thing as ‘death’ He wouldn’t be showing concern It dawned on me, the truth Of what I’d visited to learn
His despondency was for me Not living the life we’d planned Years ago before my birth In another dimensional land
I knew that I was right Because he came over to sit But, still no acknowledgment Unusually odd!… just a bit!
Questions flooded my mind I wanted all the answers for The direction of my life ‘Please, help me… I implore’
Still not looking at me Staring ahead into space Then as I reached the truth A smile embraced his face
I have the answers myself By using my own Inner-Knowing Following my Loves and Joys My path is ever-glowing
Smiling, looking at each other I felt his compassionate Heart His guidance ever-present Unconditional Love from the start
I knew that I’d been fearful Not wanting to step outside Into a world of duality I’d rather comfortably hide
He then held out his hand So I took it, and was led To the outside world “I’m ready now,” I said
We were overlooking the beach Full of people waiting, for me To talk of my Spiritual Truths By the inspiring, tranquil sea
Though I had no experience I knew my words would flow With James always at my side My confidence would ever-grow
I spoke of how I did not know What the next words would be But, with Love and centredness The right ones would come to me
I told of how we all have a story To share with each other, to inspire Individuals following our Paths In Unity Consciousness we go Higher
With Compassion for humanity And Unconditional Love for all We re-discover our Divinity The veil to all knowledge will fall
Trina Graves – 14th January 2020
About This Poem
When I began writing poems about my ‘visions’ I knew that this was an important one, however I kept putting it off as it seemd rather a long story to get into one poem. So, when it came to writing it I was pleasantly surprised that it flowed easily.
I was also surprised by the last line as it mentions one of my first poems written in 2001, The Veil To All Knowledge. That poem now seems to me to have a much deeper meaning as we are going through this difficult time in our world with all that is being uncovered, and will be uncovered. I noticed that this earlier poem finished with the line “The veil to all knowledge WOULD fall,” whereas this one states ‘WILL fall.”
This most certainly is a time for looking within for our answers as there is so much confusion on what to believe is the truth playing out in our world of duality!
I Am The Love I Am The Light I Am The Truth I Am The Joy I Am
As I mention above, this poem had a deeper meaning to me by the time I came to post it on my blog. It’s interesting how time changes our perspective on many things.
The original vision was in 2015 and at that time I had no intention of sharing my visions with anyone, so to me this vision was about having all the answers I needed within.
By the time I came to writing a poem about it in January 2020 (just before the PLANdemic) because I had by then been led to share my visions, the ending of the poem was shaped to include the relevance to anyone who might read it.
When it came to posting the poem in August 2020 we were well into the chaos and confusion of the Covid ‘story’ and hence the speeding up of The Great Awakening, where we are truly learning that The Answers Are Within!
The day was unexpectedly hot For so early in the year I ignored my usual hay fever As I had long grass to clear
The task took nearly an hour With a lawn large in size Struggling to keep on going Through stinging, watery eyes
Determined to complete the job I coughed, spluttered and wheezed The petrol fumes didn’t help Nor the multitude times I sneezed
My breathing was getting difficult By the time I was complete Feeling dizzy and rather anxious I collapsed on a comfy seat
For several years I’d experienced Moments my heart and breath took flight I’d learned to calm my thoughts And breath slowly, to put things right
Usually within a few minutes Of focused breathing I’d be okay If not a glass of water Would wash my anxiety away
But this time I felt no relief Even after half an hour So I went to lay down and rest As fear stalked my positive power
After a while it eased a little Then I thought to ease my mind I’d visit my Guide for advice And see what help I’d find
I visualised myself on the beach James was waiting there for me But as I walked over towards him Darkness came across the sea
By the time I had reached him A raging storm had a strong hold Drenched, we ran to a cave To seek shelter from the cold
Drying off by a campfire Asking, “What should I do?” “Storms of life come and go You can shelter to see you through”
I asked, if it was serious? And James then took my hand We walked outside to the beach Now sunny, and soft, dry sand
Smiling at me, James went Floating up into the sky Holding his hand, I went with him He was laughing, as we flew up high
‘Wow! This is amazing! I can see all around up here’ My thoughts raced in awe Everything becoming so clear
But then a thought crossed my mind ‘Does this mean I’m going to die?’ It seemed the obvious depiction For elevating up into the sky
As a million thoughts crowded in I shouted “NO!” and let go I wasn’t ready to die I wanted to develop and grow
I had no fear of death I’d lost that years before But I didn’t want to leave My children and grand, at all
I still had so much to do, with My dreams and wishes to inspire That had not yet come to fruition I couldn’t let them sink into the mire
I realised I was shocked And actually cross with myself Was this my Wake Up Call To look after my health?
And also a sign to get on With what I came here for Stop dilly-dallying about And fly high to my Spiritual Core
Trina Graves – 18th September 2019
About This Poem
I have had this poem drafted ready to add since September 2019 but never felt the time was right. This morning I woke with this one on my mind and realised that it was very relevant to what is going on in our world right now. It seems so obvious to me now, but incredibly I never saw the link until today… Divine Timing!
This whole Covid-19 pandemic/plandemic (depending on how you perceive it) is a global ‘Wake Up Storm’ concerning not only our health, but raising our vibration or ‘Spiritual Core’ on a worldwide scale.
On a Higher (Soul) Level this is something we all agreed to work towards and were destined to manifest, and from that Higher Perspective the worldwide ‘lockdown’ is an ingenious way to achieve not only quiet time of reflection, but also a breaking down of the myriad of systems that have ruled over our planet and people throughout history.
We are truly stepping forth into the New Earth, to live in a 5D world of Unity with Love, Compassion and Forgiveness to all – even for those who have waged crimes against humanity.
How long it takes for us to completely Ascend to this on a planetary level depends upon those who are still ‘sleeping’ Awakening, and at what level ALL the Awakened Souls are at.
Right now keeping positive, as much as possible, is a priority for everyone. Being stressed suppresses the immune system, and with the revelations that are now coming forth it will be very easy to caught up in the high drama of it all. With this in mind, I have compiled a page of links to my poems that are relevant at this time:
This is one of my first visions From so many years ago Visualizing meeting my Guide And my answers would show
I’d met James on the beach Just a few days before He was with another, Rachael We’d walked along the shore
They told me: “ Learn of chakras, You’ll be used for channelling, Feel the energy of nature” As we watched the tide flowing
Now back for another visit Though only Rachael did I meet Amazed at how she was dressed In 18th Century, from head to feet
With high, elaborate hair A painted mole on her face Her wide colourful dress It all seemed so out of place
We walked up a steep hill To see the magnificent view A canyon, valley below The sky, a purest blue
Although no words were spoken I knew why we were there To appreciate Higher Perspective It’s wisdom, she came to share
Being down in the valley Your life may seem so very small Insignificant to grander schemes Lost in the nitty-gritty of it all
Surrounded by high mountains Seeming there is no way out Clouds of darkness overhead Bringing lack of worth, and doubt
By lifting yourself Higher Making your own Path ahead Climbing to the Heights See a different view instead
With any aspect of life There is always a Higher View Always a choice to make Which perspective to see through
I asked, “How can I remember The past lives that I’ve had?” She smiled, and instantly She was differently clad
A Native American woman, saying “Let’s walk to the valley below” I felt full of energy and ran Walking, now way to slow!
As I ran, my clothes changed And I felt smaller in size A young Indian boy My energy continued to rise
The valley now contained A totally, beautiful sight Living in tune with nature My home camp, felt so right
The vision ended there Strange, but I made notes Now, twenty years later My Inner-Knowing easily floats
Learning about my past lives I’d always wanted to know Divine Timing plays its part My Awareness continues to grow
Lately I’ve been immersed In a teaching that rings so true My Heart sings with each word Of Kryon, Lee Carroll brings through
Certain words I came across Decades ago in my past Struck a deep chord in me Echoes chimed, held steadfast
Lemuria and Essenes Two words, left an indelible mark But why, remained a mystery I was bewildered, in the dark
Lemuria and Atlantis Lands of fact or fantasy? So much written of Atlantis But it didn’t interest me
I never did any research On Lemuria over the years I’m now seeing how strongly My Inner-Knowing intuitively steers
The time was just not right For me to truly understand But now, so much is clear I believe I was of this land
Synchronicity and confirmations Abundantly show me how These teachings are my truth Divine Timing bringing them now
It’s inspiringly significant to me The teachings were always there Evidence of thirty years channelled Freely given to view and share
But I never found my way To read and listen, at all Until I’d reached a point To be ready for the call
And now I understand From the Higher Perspective My own Path of this life And others I came to live
I know my future poems Will be enhanced in the Light Of these Spiritual, Divine teachings Their truth shines in me, so bright
Trina Graves – 19th November 2019
About This Poem
As I mention in this poem, this was one of my earliest ‘visions’ and as what happened was very odd to me at that time, it helped me to understand that I was not making it up myself.
It find it so fascinating that since last January, when it was revealed to me who I was actually meeting, it steadily flowed that I knew I had to share more of my visions. And so in writing the poems of them more synchronicities have come forth and given me more understanding of them and confirmation of their truth (for me) by how this all blends together in Divine Timing.
I have a link page if you would like to read more of my Vision Poems.
Waking up one morning Still feeling down, depressed I decided to seek guidance Before I got myself dressed
In my mind I visited The Beach, I’d been there before Help would always be given Now I needed it even more
The sun was shining brightly As my bare feet sank in the sand I felt the soft, yielding warmth Wherever my footsteps would land
I noticed a man and woman Sitting by the edge of the sea I went and sat beside them Knowing they were there for me
As the water cooled my feet I asked ‘What should I do?’ My life, a downward spiral To change, I needed a clue
The answer came interestingly In the words of a childhood song Listening as in my mind it played Simple truths I knew all along…
“Look for the bare necessities The simple bare necessities Forget about your worries and your strife I mean the bare necessities Old Mother Nature’s recipes That brings the bare necessities of life”
“And don’t spend your time looking around For something you want, that can’t be found When you find out you can live without it And go along not thinking about it I’ll tell you something true The bare necessities of life will come to you”
The profoundness in those words Struck me with their simplicity I needed to let go and trust All necessities of life flowed to me
Trina Graves – 19th August 2019 Vision 17th December 2000
The Bare Necessities (The Jungle Book 1967) written by Terry Gilkson
About This Poem
This was one of my earlier visualizations, and I think the only one where I have not met up with my usual guide. Although, as it was one of the earliest ones, and at that time I did not know that I would meet the same guide for over twenty years, it is possible that the man sat by the sea was him, but I never wrote it down and now can’t remember.
At the end of the nineties and going into the next decade I was having a hard time getting over my divorce, along with other problems I was struggling to cope. I had began my Spiritual path (which I can now easily see was an important reason and pivotal point for the divorce) but I was not truly set on my way. At the time of this vision I had written two poems and two other pieces of writing (that I now know were guided) but I knew nothing of the Law Of Attraction so I spent a lot of time focusing on what I didn’t have!
I can’t remember if this vision helped much at that time, but I did write a poem the following year ‘The Simple Things In Life,’ so I’m sure it must have had some affect.
The Jungle Book (Disney) was released at the end of 1968 in the UK, so it was just before my 8th birthday. I can’t remember going to see the film, but my parents did get us the record (vinyl) of this song. It also contained a few more songs from the film. What I find so interesting now, is that this was the only children’s record we ever had!
Another synchronicity, and perhaps why I was drawn to writing this poem at this time, is that over the past month or so I have been clearing and sorting my home as I feel the need to simplify my life. I didn’t intend to do this, I just woke one day and knew I had to start getting rid of the things I have been hanging onto for years! With every cupboard etc.. that I clear and get rid of everything that I do not use regularly, I feel lighter in Spirit.

Four months had passed Since my last little visit In my mind a visualization With Jesus, I now admit
At Dorchester Abbey we’d met Several times over this year But that place just didn’t fit Where now would He appear?
I thought of all the places We’d met before, in the past A beach, woods, mountains But no vision was cast
My very own back garden Then came to my attention That’s silly, I thought Not even worth a mention
But my garden wouldn’t go It kept returning to my mind So I knew it must be And wondered what I’d find
As I stepped into the garden I saw Jesus standing there Smiling, patiently waiting Among my flowers everywhere
I approached and greeted Him As the loving friend I knew Then I was astonished to see Someone else was with Him too
We were overjoyed to meet And hugged each other tight Amira, my friend in cyberspace We’d slotted together, just right
For a year now we’ve been Synchronistically linked to each other Sharing, with so much in common Brought together, I believe, by her mother
We’ve both expanded and grown Spiritually, we are aligned Connecting through messages Typed, but, also by mind
As we hugged in my garden I saw us as two little girls Victorian sisters in a past life Long dresses and flowing curls
Happily skipping, hand-in-hand Very close, not just in years I had an inner knowing we died Still young, but shed no tears
I also got the impression Jesus and Amira were old friends Relaxed, all together now Time miraculously blends
Jesus then took our hands We were at the Pyramids instantly In Egypt, we watched in awe As a Light Show we did see
Pouring into the pyramid Were dazzling colours of Light From the majestic Cosmos All flowing, the time was right
Then we were at Stonehenge To see the same, once more As The Light cascaded in A Gateway to Gaia’s core
No words were spoken We knew what was happening Source Energy charging up Mother Earth to healing bring
Gateways across the Earth Were receiving the Purest Light Setting in motion the plan To release Gaia from Her plight
Then we saw Mother Earth Opening up her innumerous pores To release the blockages sunk By humans neglect and wars
Millennia of negativity borne By Gaia to support man Now’s the time of the purge It’s always been the plan
We saw dark, thick, slimy gunk Oozing up through the ground I wondered how it would clear Could a way be found?
Instantly the answer came The Light, eternally the way Dissolving, eradicating dark As night always turns to day
Also, the Waters of Mother Earth Would cleanse and purify Gaia’s release would bring A New Earth to be on High
We were then back in my garden To relax, and chat as friends Having a cuppa together And that’s where my vision ends

About This Poem
I have several other vision poems I thought I would write before this one as this is my most recent visualization. However, when I was writing the ‘About This Poem’ part on We Are Ready this vision kept coming to my mind, so I knew I needed to write this one next, as it fitted well with that poem, and the one I’d posted to go with it ‘Unite! All Those Of The Light.‘
This visualization was quite interesting for me because I learned to tell when it was my own mind thinking and I wasn’t going with the flow. As I mention in the poem, I questioned the location, thinking it wasn’t right, but as it kept coming back I knew it was. When Amira appeared my thinking went to ‘perhaps her mum is with her too,’ but she did not appear, so I knew this was my thinking. After visiting Stonehenge, my mind began to think of other places to visit, this was the strongest indication as I tried to think of all the places around the Earth that were relevant, my mind was blank, even though I knew I did know of them! I eventually thought of Michu Picchu, but we didn’t go there. But, regardless of this I knew that the two places we did visit were not the only Gateways.
I find it fascinating that the words for these vision poems flow so easily. I think I have probably said this before! However, this one was a good example, for me, of how I had no doubt whatsoever that I could create a poem from my notes. Of course, I do pray and ask for guidance before I write, and with these vision poems, since finding out the real identity of who I have been visiting (A Birthday Revelation) I do also ask for guidance from Jesus for the words too. When I am writing sometimes extra little bits come up and the word ‘Gateways’ was added at this point. Also, as soon as I mentioned Amira, I knew I had to tell more of the story of our connection, which was obviously not part of the vision.
Another thing that often happens is a word will come that I am not at all sure is the correct usage, (or even one I do not know.) I had to look up cyberspace, borne, and plight to ensure they had the correct meaning, but of course, they did!
I had already emailed Amira to tell her of this vision when it happened, and I sent her the poem as soon as it was written. Anyone who follows my poems would have noticed that Amira always comments on them. However, at this moment in time, Amira is taking a break from technology so will not be commenting (for a while). But, I do know that she loves the vision and poem.
The timing of this has also been very interesting! As I mentioned above I had no plans to write this poem so soon. Once written I told Amira that I would post it after I’d posted ‘Stained Glassed Poems‘ as that poem led directly on from the previous ‘A Birthday Revelation.’ So, now was the allotted time as I like to alternate the different categories.
I have told before (in other vision poems) of how I now follow and watch all videos from Amanda Ellis (there have been so many synchronicities and I received a healing through one of her videos that led to my birthday revelation.) And on the 7th August Amanda uploaded: Lions Gate 8/8 Reading & Meditation. I didn’t actual watch it until the 9th, but was amazed to find that the meditation took us to the pyramid in Eygpt to personally receive the Light being poured in from Sirius! At some point in the video she also mentioned Stonehenge and the whole video was about the ‘Gateway’ of 8/8.
The two poems I mentioned at the beginning (Unite! All Those Of The Light & We Are Ready) were written based on Blossom Goodchild’s messages from The Federation Of Light, but also, so much of what Blossom says is aligned with Amanda’s words too. For me, these two women are bringing through the truth of what is happening on our planet at this momentous time in Earth’s history. They both have lately spoken of the shocking secrets that are now coming to light for those who have not been aware before.
Whatever comes up to the surface now, we all need to brightly shine our Light, to clear the darkness and not get stuck in the slimy gunk!
In this time of The Great Awakening it is difficult to know who is speaking truth, looking within using our Inner Discernment is the only way we can navigate our way through. Over the past three years I have listened to many ‘truthers,’ some I knew straight away not to continue with (especially those who only talk of doom & gloom), then some over time I moved away from as their words seemed less and less to ring true.
This vision in June 2019 (before our world was aware of the PLANdemic etc..) stands out to me now as some of the expressions have been mentioned in the Truther community. ‘Watch the waters,’ is a phrase often spoken about with reports of unusual flooding, some say it is the cleansing of the underground tunnels, but whatever the reason I do believe (because of my vision) that waters are being used to ‘cleanse and purify.’ Of course, the Light eradicating the dark is what we are living through at this present time as so many dark deeds are surfacing for us to be made aware of so we can make a stand and say “No! we will not comply or let this continue.”
Another interesting part of my poem is about the ‘dark, thick, slimy gunk,’ my notes at the time were of a ‘black goo,’ but on writing the poem I was trying to be more descriptive. I had not heard of the term ‘black goo,’ and my understanding at that time was of it representing the evil ‘darkness.’ However, over the past three years I came across some truthers talking of ‘Black Goo’ being a malevolent form of artificial intelligence.
For writing this update I have just done a search of ‘black goo’ (on duckduckgo) and found some very interesting results. It is mentioned as something found in ancient Egyptian coffins (a definite link to the poem). Also, it is a common name for Graphine Oxide which in the alternative media reports as being in the Covid vaccines, but ‘fact checkers’ etc.. say is not. I’m not saying it is in the jabs, but so called ‘fact checkers’ are without doubt bias in their decisions!
A very interesting article I came across was on ForensicHealing.com ‘the substance ruling the world black goo graphine oxide’ and is worth taking a look at to discover how much this substance is already in our everyday life, there is also a link to Google Patents where graphine oxide IS listed as being in the vaccine! Reading something like this some people might find to be very negative, however, I believe the way to perceive it is: we need to learn of the things used to manipulate us so we can eliminate them, and, our mind, body and Spirit are Divinely Powerful and can deal with toxicities etc..
Visiting in my mind Soon after my ‘Birthday Revelation’ I went to Dorchester Abbey Feeling a little trepidation
My nervousness soon left As I stood by His side Remembering well all the times He’d been my pure Guide
We were looking up at The beautiful window And memories surfaced Of me so long ago…
As a child these windows Inspired you to bring Your vibration much higher Especially while carolling
Many years have passed And now you can see How everything has led to Who you came here to be
These windows represent The poems you write Colourful depictions Always letting in Light
Inspiration is needed For everyone around Positivity shines through In both can be found
Placed to visit Where anyone can see Once viewed becoming Imbued in memory
Each one tells a story That needs to be told Throughout the ages For young and for old
Many small parts Make up the whole Each one essential To reflect God’s goal
Bringing forth in physical Colourful beauty and Light Telling of the stories To inspire Love to shine bright

About This Poem
In my previous poem ‘A Birthday Revelation‘ I told of how the guide I have been meeting in visualization since 1999, who I knew of as James, revealed to me His true identity – Jesus.
This was my first ‘visit’ knowing I would be meeting Jesus and not James, I felt nervous as I approached Him standing underneath the stained glass windows on the right side of the picture below, but soon relaxed as He spoke the words that inspired this poem.
After these visits, or the following day if at night, I make notes of what happened and is said, but of course, it is not word-for-word. When I eventually sit to write the poem I always pray and ask for guidance for the words, which always seem to flow easily with these vision poems.
Waking in the early hours Of my birthday this year No idea why I couldn’t sleep Now I know, the reason so clear
I had recently re-visited A visualization exercise I’d began the summer of 99 Twenty years, my.. how time flies!
Usually on a beach I’d meet My guide James and we’d talk His wisdom often very profound As in the sunshine we would walk
I hadn’t done this for a long time No meeting place had seemed right But, the re-visit a few days before Brought back a memorable site
Dorchester Abbey, a childhood place I loved, so I’d met James there Getting back to the morning My birthday joy I wanted to share
As I walked down the aisle I saw James in the front pew Then he leapt up, facing me Arms outstretched, at once I knew
He was Jesus, and not James Surprised! I wasn’t expecting this Time stood still as it sank in And our past visits I reminisced
I thought of how I’d wondered Before of the similarity A pure and gentle loving nature Looking how I thought Jesus would be
But I’d always tell myself: “Don’t jump to that conclusion It’s just your wishful thinking Creeping into this illusion”
As Jesus waited patiently For my mind to take in it all Not one word did He say But His embracing smile I recall
Just as I accepted the truth My human doubt gave me a kick ‘Delusions of grandeur’ my thought So I left there, rather too quick!
The significance of the date Was this a sign? Could it be? His Lovingly Blissful Presence At my birth, my mum did see
But I never ‘felt’ a thing So I let this vision go Forgetting it even happened I put a block to that flow!
A week or two passed Then began a constant process Many synchronicities and signs Miraculously tuned my awareness
Listening to a radio talk-show Emailing messages to a friend Thoughts came to me often Bringing clarity, for me to mend
Through these I learned my blocks Self-worth, fear of it all being real And not feeling the Divine Bliss Now, how from these could I heal?
I knew I had to visit Jesus To find out some more So to the Abbey I went In my mind just as before
Jesus then explained to me Why I’d blocked His identity I just was not at all ready My doubt would make me flee
So over the years we’d met To establish a relationship My friend, a brotherly companion No ‘Deity’ worship taking a grip
Being worthy of His Presence Now I could understand Every Soul that ever exists Is truly worthy to take His hand
My fear of it being real I soon came to realize I’d have to share this truth Would other people criticize?
The last block to dissolve Came from words of my own My latest poem, just before Christmas Wow! The seed was really sown!
Jesus: The Christ was the poem All about His many names And the reason for His Presence So why could one not be James?
The significance of this poem Was that I’d gone with the flow No intention for the words The relevance now clearly on show
And then I read the words Added to my blog in December Preparing to write the poem I did something I didn’t remember
I always ask for guidance Before each poem I write But this was the first time I asked For Jesus, to guide my words right
As I asked I felt overwhelming Tears of pureness and love I unthinkingly immediately blocked this Still remaining connected to the above
So here, in my own words, my reason For not feeling the immense emotion On being in His Presence I’d given myself the notion!
Everything happens for a reason I have always believed to be true All those years of preparation Were meant to happen too

About This Poem
When I posted my poem ‘Footprints Of Light’,in the ‘About This Poem’ section I had already written about the story of my ‘Birthday Revelation’ there are more details there than I have included in the poem, and at the end I also mentioned that I now believed I needed to write more poems on my experiences to share with others, so if you are interested in finding out more, please take a look there.
‘Jesus: The Christ’ as mentioned in the poem is all about His names and you can also read what I wrote before posting this on Christmas Day.
Going to the beach to meet James My visualization Guide Where everything becomes clear As constant as the tide
But instead I found my mum There on the sandy beach I thought her Higher Self Must have come to teach
She led me to lots of people Sat in a circle on the ground And instantly in the middle I was then to be found
Surrounded by loved ones From my life who had taught Me lessons, or influenced me Whether given or sought
My parents, siblings, children Grandchildren and friends I didn’t acknowledge them all It seemed the circle never ends
And then standing just behind them Encircling, there were more I knew these were all Spirit I just felt it at my core
I questioned, were they Guides For all the people sat around? ‘No’ came the answer For me they were all bound
Then I followed an impulse To get up and walk away Turning to look at them all Would they follow or stay?
Some had disappeared From those that were sitting The others smiled and watched Their love for me still emitting
My Spirit Guides and Helpers Had followed me on Then as I walked further My seeing them had gone
I knew they were with me Wherever I might tread And understanding of all this Came into my head
I must step out of the encirclement To not be contained by those I love And follow my own path Guided by those of the above

About This Poem
When I began these visualization exercises in 1999 I had no idea they would one day lead to me writing poems about them! Now, looking back, it has been a natural development and I am often amazed that after reading my notes of a visualization, a poem then so easily flows to tell the story.
The wisdom of this visualization seems so obvious to me now, but back in 2003 it was just another interesting experience to note and keep. I had been told to write everything down (because one day I would need it!) in a message given to me at a Spiritualist Church many years before. Today, that message and these poems that have developed from that initial guidance are (for me) proof of eternal life and a knowing of my own path.
Although we are all One, we are also individual aspects of the Divine, and therefore have our own uniqueness that will not match even those we are closest to and love most dearly. My beliefs and path are certainly in a different direction than my parents and siblings, and my intense desire for a more spiritual life is not a match to my children and grandchildren’s priorities (yet!) However, many of them are aware of (or becoming aware of) and acknowledging the Spiritual aspect of life. I am certain that several of my grandchildren are empathic and I know that as this generation grows to maturity, with the Light that is expanding, they will all be able to perceive and understand much more than I do.
I share a few of my poems with my family, but I know they are not that interested in them. But, I hope that one day they will be ready to read and hopefully learn from them. It will also give them an insight and understanding of me and my beliefs.
I have a link page of my Vision Poems if you would like to read more.
After this vision in 2014, I Googled: ‘Be Love, Seek Joy’ to see if it was a known quote from anyone – to confirm I wasn’t just remembering it, and to see if it was okay to use it on my Spiritual Quotes To Live By site, without having to credit it to someone, so that I could make a picture out of it as a divider. I didn’t find it, so went ahead.
The flowers are cut-outs from my nature photos I take to make up my quote pictures.
Of course, there are many who wisely say to ‘Seek Joy’ and I especially know that it is often told by Abraham-Hicks – who I have listened to and learned from for many years, but, the important thing is to ‘Be Love’ first. By always coming from a place of love the joy will flow effortlessly, and you can also be at peace knowing that everything you create for your joy will always be for the highest good of the all.
It was in December 2012 Everywhere was Ascension talk A few days before the 21st I wondered what path we’d walk
Questioning, ‘What is Ascension?’ I went to find answers in my mind A visit with James on the beach And clarity of guidance I knew I’d find
But the beach just didn’t seem right Woods?.. Mountain top high in the air? And then I was in a new place A field full with a travelling fun-fair
James was nowhere in sight So I thought I’d go for a walk Around the sights and sounds As I did, I heard his voice talk
“With all the different rides to go on Life is like a great FUN-fair Exciting, noisy, lots going on And high drama, if you dare”
“Children love all the fun Of a colourful, simple ride Parents know to keep them away From those where scary things hide”
“If you want to get a high view Take a trip on the Big Wheel But the cycle of life has its downs What’s important is how you feel”
“Some people love the fast rides And crave a dangerous element Forces pressing, tossed about Highest drama in physicality sent”
“It’s best to only ride what you enjoy But that’s not what most will do A multitude of reasons why These are some to give you a clue”
“Peer pressure, fitting in with friends Not wanting to feel left out May cause you to take on things That you fear, or just give you doubt”
“Enticed by the hard sell Or blatantly just dared Not wanting to accept defeat Can win over, even if truly scared”
“And then there are also those Who’ve given their control away Unknowingly manipulated by others Which ride?… what to do, every day”
“There are always a few Who just want to take in the sights Not venturing this time on the rides All choices… no wrongs or rights”
As I reached the other side I noticed James just up ahead Looking younger, dressed in jeans Baseball cap, backwards, on his head
Between us a white picket fence I then saw, surrounded the fair A barrier with no visible gate Then one appeared, so I went out there
I asked James what will happen When Ascension comes along He said “This fair will end And all the rides will be gone”
“People will have a choice To continue on in another fair Or let go of the perpetual rides High drama and intoxicating glare”
“To simply BE in peace and Joy Living as One in unity Love and Light flowing to all Surrounded by beauty all can see”
Behind James was another field Picturesque of Heaven above Children happily ran and played I could feel the Joy and the Love
James asked me, “Would you be Willing to let all your family go Especially your little grandchildren And their parents… yes or no?”
I thought all the children would Ascend When that time came to be James said, “Even they have a choice Always freewill for all of humanity”
We walked closer to the fence And I understood its presence there A barrier between the two worlds I could see over, but not physically share
Joyful groups gathered to watch Their precious Loved ones go for a ride Knowing they could give guidance Sending their energy to the other side
I felt a sense of Peace And then drifted off to sleep That fateful day came and went But Ascension knowledge I now keep

About This Poem
This is another one of my poems that describes one of the visions and messages I have been given over the years. There is a link page to the other poemsI’ve written so far if you would like to know more about this.
This was one of my visions that helped me to accept that there was no way I was just thinking these all by myself. The majority of them had been on a beach, with only a few elsewhere, but they were always scenes of beauty in nature. The way this one took me to somewhere I wasn’t expecting to go, and with how much sense it all made, as I saw and listened to this all in my mind, it was amazing to me.
I did get caught up in the long build-up to that much hyped date – 22nd December 2012 – and when the day came and went, with nothing noticeable happening, I must admit I was a little disappointed. At that time I listened a lot to Abraham-Hicks, so I should have taken more notice of what they were saying, in that it would just be another day, like any other!
There had also been another prediction in 2008, to do with disclosure, that I had also followed and hoped would happen, but it did not. But, my conclusion for that one also made sense for this non-occurrence too.
I believe that these things happen – or I should say, are predicted but don’t happen – to get our attention and to open more minds, so that we can then focus on these things to bring them about ourselves. The quote: ‘We are the ones we have been waiting for’ has a profound truth, as it is us that need to raise our vibration to bring about these changes.
I also think that this date was a turning point in the tipping of the scales on our planet of duality, as we started to gain momentum in bringing the Light through.
We certainly have been on a very high drama ride over the past few years, which seems to be intensifying each day! This vision/poem has more meaning to me now as the ‘reasons’ explained for staying clear of what we don’t enjoy have become very evident.
‘Peer pressure’ used to manipulate people to follow the rules and take the experimental jab, even though they might doubt it, and there was a definite ‘hard sell’ used by government, mainstream media & health services, their over-the-top fear mongering caused millions to be ‘truly scared. Which led to an alarming amount of people to add to those who had already ‘given their control away’ to be told ‘Which ride?… what to do, every day.’
I believe part of ‘The Great Awakening’ is for us to choose NOT to go on any of the ‘Fun-Fair Of Life’ rides, to be able to walk around the ‘attractions’ without taking part, accepting that we all have free-choice to ride or not.
The mainstream fun-fair is provided to keep us distracted and occupied with all the high drama, so we are not inclined to take the time to question anything about it, especially the overall effects and safety.
The ‘Ascension’ that was so talked about in 2012 is about ‘The Great Awakening.’ as we open up to there being so much more to life than we were led to believe, our vibration raises and we take a leap in our Ascension process. We are heading towards a future New Earth…
“To simply BE in Peace and Joy Living as One in Unity Love and Light flowing to all Surrounded by Beauty all can see”
I met James on the beach Just as I did before Wondering what he’d say I wanted to learn more
We stood at the end By the edge of the sea The beach began to fill With many a family
One little boy playing I noticed near by With bucket and spade Then, time began to fly
The years passed quickly And families returned Drawn to the beach Relaxation they yearned
The boy had grown Now, a young lad Still playing in the sand Always fun to be had
But then he looked up As he noticed near by A man was ‘preaching’ He went to listen why
Returning to his play It became known to me Everyone was caught up In their own lives, by the sea
The years carried on The boy, now a man Relaxed on the beach Enjoying getting a tan
Eyes closed, deep in thought A memory surfaced one day Of hearing the ‘preacher’ And what he came to say
He walked in the direction Of where he had heard Thinking of the wisdom Now evident in every word
As this happened I was told People are caught up in living Many not noticing around them The beauty of what is given
But some will hear And take it all in Dormantly waiting For their path to begin
They become a Seeker Of Truth, Love and Light Now set on a course For a future so bright
‘Watch Out For The Seekers’ James said, and he went I wrote the vision down Acknowledging wisdom sent
I became a Seeker In the 90’s, years ago Even these visions, at first Their truth, I didn’t know
Things I first heard Back in my distant past Return with new meaning Insightfulness hits at last
I write for the Seekers Of the future and now Guided by the inspiration I receive, and I allow
This vision taught me To never give in Sharing my words of truth Time will always win
Divine Timing unfolds With Joy I do my part Sharing with all With Love from my Heart
Trina Graves – 12th March 2019
About This Poem A week ago I added ‘Footprints Of Light,‘ and at the end I wrote that I it had just come to me that the visualizations I have been doing for many years are not just for me, and that I would be writing more poems about them.
This week I have written many poems. Each time, before I start, I pray and ask for guidance for the title or theme, and the words. Three times the poems have been of these visions. This was the first poem I wrote this week and I knew, as soon as I asked, what it would be. The fact that it was of one of my visualizations, and out of them, the one chosen first to now write about, gives me confirmation of last weeks guidance.
I believe this vision was guidance for me relevant to ‘The Great Awakening’ that we are currently going through. As more and more people daily are Awakening to what has been going on for so very long in our world, that was kept hidden from us, and also Awakening to knowing they are Divine Spiritual Beings who hold the true power, I hope anyone who finds my words (from this or any other of my poems) will get some comfort or inspiration from them.
We are all individual ‘Seekers’ on our Spiritual Paths, whether we realise it or not, some will journey far along their path (especially now at this time) and others may not even take that first step in their present lifetime. All-Is-Well, and as it should be.
Affirming The Classics: based on Footprints In The Sand (author unknown)
One night I had a dream. I dreamed I was walking along a beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one belonging to me, and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of my life flashed before me I looked back at the footprints in the sand I noticed that sometimes along the path of my life there was only one set of footprints.
Then I realized that it was when I moved closer to the Lord and our footsteps combined, that I was happier. These were the times in my life I felt an abundance of love, gratitude and peace.
The Lord said to me: “You are my beloved, precious child of the Light. I Am with you now and forever, but you always have freewill to follow your own path. My footprints are there beside you, to guide you, if you choose. No matter what, I will always love you unconditionally.

About This Poem
My last post Footprints Of Lightwas my first poem of Affirming The Classic of Footprints In The Sand. In the ‘About’ section of the post I told of my experience in having a new vision of Footprints. As I was writing it, I also knew I would be doing this version, which is very much closer to the original.
As I said previously – The original Footprints poem depicts our helplessness in facing the struggles of life, we are picked up and carried by the Lord to see us through. But, we are now stronger and no longer need to be carried. Instead we are now able to accept our Divinity and walk alongside His footsteps, using our freewill to consciously walk in His way.
And of course, however we chose to live our lives, we are eternally loved unconditionally.
Update: Although this poem is very close to the original, it was only re-written due to a vision I had, so I have included it with my other poems of these experiences. You can easily access them all from my link page: Visions.There is also a link page for more poems of the series: Affirming The Classics.
My Vision – 3rd February 2019 Affirming The Classics: Footprints In The Sand
I walked with my friend Jesus beside the sea Knowing that with me He would always be I was on the damp, dense sand of the Earth He on soft, light and golden, with me since birth
We turned to look at the footprints we’d made But only one set could I see out there laid Weaving in and out of the waves of the sea At various depths were the footprints of me
I recalled and went to a time in my past Heavy-hearted, my feet sinking fast Into the sea of life I’d gone too deep But near to me Jesus would always keep
Looking back at our footprints I now saw Rays of Light I did not notice there before Straight and True His prints were of the Light A way to Be, His Loving Path shined so bright
Then I noticed the more delicate steps of mine Were as I moved closer and I did combine My own path with the Light of His Way On soft, golden sands with Him I now stay
One more lesson His Footprints came to tell Gratitude to Mother Earth and to keep her well He left no imprint, only Blessings of Light My Inner Being knows this vision to be right

About This Poem
When I began this series of re-writing my favourite inspirational poems to change them into Affirmations, Footprints In The Sand was one of the first I looked at to work on. It has always been one of my favourite poems but as I read it, even though I could see that it had some negative aspects I couldn’t see how I could change it, so I let it go.
However, it seems that was not meant to be! And by sharing with you the following I am taking (for me) a monumental step forward! But, I know I need to do this, to ‘Speak My Truth‘ and share the Light.
For many years I have visualized meeting a ‘guide’ of mine called James on a beach (and eventually other places) to ask questions and receive guidance. My very first meeting (in 1999) I eventually made into a poem: Insight where you can read the story of what happened. Back then I thought it was a strange imaginary experience, I wrote it down and put it away (for many years). One day I came across the poem and was astonished as I finally saw the significance and from then onwards I would visit when I felt the need.
Over the past year or so I have not done the visualization very often, and more recently I always found I was struggling with where to meet! Nothing seemed to easily flow so I would give up, knowing that if it’s not flowing, it’s not right.
In January, a few days before my birthday, I watched a channelling done by Amanda Ellis of Michael Jackson. Amanda had said that there would be inner-child healing done during the channelling and I certainly felt something shift. Before it started I felt drawn to pick up a rose quartz crystal and, without giving it any thought, I held it against my heart all the way through the two hour video. As the link with Michael came to an end he said that one of the easiest ways for anyone to link with him was by holding a rose quartz crystal as it opens the heart! I was totally amazed!!! To me, this proved I was meant to watch this and that it was of the truth.
Over the next couple of days I certainly felt as though something had happened, I couldn’t put it into words, but there was definitely something ‘healed.’ And I also noticed synchronistic things happening very quickly towards further healing.
I’m not sure if it was this video, or in another where Amanda was talking about Michael, but he had said to do something we liked doing as a child. I gave this some thought and a memory of sitting in an Abbey that was next door to my primary school came to me. I especially used to love it at Christmas time when we would go there and sing Christmas carols, and I would gaze at the magnificent stained glass windows. I then thought it would be a wonderful place to meet James, so I visited him there a couple of times before what happened next.
In the very early hours of my birthday, – there is an extremely important significance to it being my birthday, but I can’t go into that as it is not my story to tell – I awoke and could not get back to sleep. I decided to pay a visit to Dorchester Abbey and meet James. As I walked down the aisle I could see him seated at the front waiting for me. As I approached him he sprang up out of the pew and stood before me in the centre, arms outstretched, surrounded by Light and in that moment I knew he was not James, but Jesus. At that moment a multitude of thoughts all happened at once: I was shocked, but then not, as I remembered many times when I had wondered if James was not who he said, because he seemed like Jesus – in Energy and image – and then thoughts such as ‘Am I just imagining this because I’ve wondered before?’ then the doubt really swept in.. and it wasn’t long before I let go of the visualizing, with thoughts of ‘my delusions of grandeur.’
I must have put all this to the back of my mind because it didn’t re-surface until I was emailing Amira (BodyAndSoulNourishmentBlog), and over the course of many days the memory and all my doubts were brought to the surface, and then something synchronistic would happen to explain why I was doubting. This happened all so miraculously and would take a long time to explain, but my on-going journey of discovery was manifested largely triggered through emails with Amira. I was shown that ‘James’ had not revealed who he truly was because I was not ready to accept this, and I would not have returned to continue our meetings as I felt I was not worthy. By coming to me as ‘James’ I could accept him as a friend first.
The way in which all this has unfolded has been very convincing proof of it’s truth, but in all honesty I am still not quite there yet on 100% Being this truth. My biggest doubt has been ‘Why do I not feel a much stronger Energy when I am ‘talking’ with Him?’ The answer I got is that I have raised my energy enough to not feel a greater difference and because we have been meeting as ‘friends’ for so many years. (more to this later, but I am leaving this writing chronologically as the experiences happened and also not editing this earlier writing.)
Getting back to this poem. As I worked my way through the doubts I hesitantly visited the Abbey to meet with Jesus. It was only a short ‘visit’ as we looked at, and talked about the stained glass windows. But the next time I went to visit we were instead back on the beach and I asked if He had any ‘story messages’ to tell me (as before when I met ‘James’). This poem is what happened next, and I of course realized it was a new telling of Footprints In The Sand. The poem I thought would not be done! Interestingly, when I wrote the poem, a week or so later, I was stuck for the last line, apart from knowing the last word (to rhyme with Light) was ‘right.’ It then came to me that it was not to be part of the story, but an affirmation for me to accept it.
After writing this poem of my vision I also wrote another sticking much more to the original Footprints, but also combining it with this one to turn it into more of an affirmation. ‘My Footprints In The Sand’
I have had this post drafted and ready to add for a few weeks. Since that time I have had another realization to do with my doubts of this experience. Back in December I wrote a poem called ‘Jesus: The Christ‘ if you read the poem and what I wrote about it you can see that (1) It is all about the names of Jesus. (2) It was written without the intention of being all about His names. (3) I started with a list of His names intending to just use a few, but used them all. (4) The poem flowed easily to use not only all of the names, but also why He came, which includes being a guide for you and me. (5) Before I started writing the poem I asked for help from Jesus (this was the first time I had done this when writing) and I immediately felt an emotional response which I blocked!!!
I had forgotten about this poem, and now I can easily see the significance that only a few weeks before this experience I had written all about His many names, so why not James? And one of my biggest doubts was because I did not feel the emotional response I thought I should. And now I read my own words telling me I blocked it! Wow!!!
9th March 2019
All of the above was written before today, and although some of it is mentioned in my last post I have left this as I originally wrote it, which was mostly almost a month ago. When I did write it, I knew I was not ready to share this story (except with Amira) so as other poems were written, I thankfully posted them before this one! But, as I always know – Everything Happens For A Reason – and in those few weeks I have not only had more clarification in the truth of it, but I also have come to know that NOW is the time to speak our truth and stand steadfast in our Light for all to see. I Am ready!
Mostly from my own experiences, but also from the videos I have been led to watch lately, I believe that Jesus is available to us all, with no limits of our religion or worthiness etc.. We need to let go of the past history and conditioning of perceiving him as a Deity on High and accept him as a brother or friend to us all. Humanity and the world has changed so much since Jesus walked the Earth over two thousand years ago. Everything is always expanding and growing, so the Jesus of then is not the Jesus of now! His teachings would of course remain at their core the same, but they would be expanded upon and taught differently to those of the past.
The original Footprints poem depicts our helplessness in facing the struggles of life, we are picked up and carried by the Lord to see us through. But, we are now stronger and no longer need to be carried. Instead we are now able to accept our Divinity and walk alongside His footsteps, using our freewill to consciously walk in His way… making our own Footprints Of Light.
Just before I sat to write this last part today, it came to me that my experiences of these visualizations over the years are not just for me! So I believe I am going to be writing some more poems on the ones from my past, and whatever comes in the future!
Update: I do now have more poems of these experiences, which I have brought together on a link page: Visions.There is also a link page for more: Affirming The Classics.
I am truly grateful for a message I received at a Spiritualist Church in May 1994, I had only gone a few times before and different mediums had given me a couple of messages from unknown sources, but this one was different. Not only was I given his name, but the medium described how, for the last few years of his life, this person had to stand leaning over against a chair/table just to be able to breathe a little easier. She also described his personality exactly right, so I had no doubt that it was my uncle, who had emphysema and died in January 1992.
The main point of the message was that I should write everything down, because one day I would need it! I had on-and-off kept a diary, so I tried my best to continue. But, I would always write down on bits and pieces of paper anything that I thought relevant or unusual that occurred. Without this advice I would not have re-discovered earlier experiences to learn and grow from.. and also write poems about!
When I originally carried out this visualization exercise in 1999, I just thought it was interesting and (following the advice) wrote it down and put it away. I’m not sure when it was I recovered the notes – I probably have it written down somewhere! – but I do remember feeling totally amazed, not only in the words and understanding their significance, but also in wondering why I never realized it before! I typed out the story on a photograph of a beach and placed it where I could see it often, to remind me of why I am here.
I have taken other trips to the beach (and other locations) in visualizations and had some more interesting encounters, but I don’t do it very often as I don’t feel the need and think it would make it less remarkable.
I now have more poems of these visualizations, so I made a link page called Visions to bring them together. Also, I have written a poem ‘My Catalyst’ that tells more of the story about my uncle’s part in my life
