Into the Darkness… A Gift from Our Soul: A Reflection of Michael as Our Mirror

Unknown

“But they told me… I’m meant to be faithful… and walk when not able… and fight till the end… but I’m only human.”

-Michael Jackson, Will You Be There?

Yes, Michael was a radiant light that continues to shower the world with his profound love. But Michael’s love and light was only strengthened by his human journey into the darkness, as is true with all of us. Nothing makes us stronger than when we have been taken to our knees – the darkness of our soul – to move past all that is blocking us from our Divine Light. Yet, it is only once we are there that we can rise up with greater wisdom, depth and insight into who we truly are — a child of God — and live from that place that is our soul.

Chapter 18 of my book, Michael Jackson: The Man in Our Mirror, A Reflection of Our Collective Soul, was one of the deepest, most challenging and painful chapters for me to write. It took me over a month to actually finish the first draft because of all of the emotions that […]

The Book is Out There — The Risk of Baring Our Heart & Soul!

book_coverWell… the book is out there. A project that I have been working on for the last 5 ½ years (since the week after Michael Jackson died in 2009), yet really the story of the Michael magic and miracles that began nearly 30 years ago already, has become manifest in book form as of December 11, 2014.

I can hardly believe it. Gulp.

After living this story (and often wondering what it meant and what it was all for) for so much of my life, it is an understatement to say that I have felt a sense of tremendous relief and release that this book is really out there for the world; it has been nothing less than the birth of a child for me. On one hand, I am excited to share this magical sojourn, guided by Michael himself, that has led me to so many insights into myself but also about life—things that we all can glean from as souls walking through the human condition on Planet Earth. Yes, this excites me! I want to share this all with you!

However, on the other hand, I am human and I will be […]

From Hatred to Love: A Thought About Tom Sneddon

With the death of Tom Sneddon, it has obviously stirred a lot of energy amongst the MJ Fan community. It brings up old anger and understandably so, but for me, I also find myself in profound bafflement. How could someone have such a vicious and hateful vendetta against a human being who had nothing but love and kindness in his heart for the world, and more importantly, who had done nothing personal to Sneddon himself? I simply could not understand it then and still don’t. Unless we look a little deeper…

With that said, I witnessed the 2005 trial and media frenzy with the same feelings that many of the MJ fans did, but also with many people who weren’t necessarily his fans, yet felt such incredible compassion for Michael and could see that he was obviously being set up. I certainly felt the human emotions, but I also somewhat distanced and allowed myself to step out of the intensity of the human condition, and instead view it from a “higher’ perspective… from the perspective that is only love, the energy that is God and that which unites us all, and yes, even Tom Sneddon. Gulp.

I know it is EXTREMELY difficult […]

Michael… Our Truest World Citizen: Remembering 9/11

“Because in truth, I believe all men are created equal… I just can’t conceive of how a person could hate another because of skin color.  I love every race on the planet earth. Prejudice is the child of ignorance.”  

–Michael Jackson

Yes, at the age of 14, I was taken in by the Thriller storm of 1983 like everyone else was. If you had a pulse, it was hard not to be entranced by this already rising, now bursting into the Universe, star named Michael Jackson. Who wasn’t pulled in by the music, the videos and the dancing? Wasn’t everyone trying to do the Moonwalk?

But for me, what pulled me into the soul of Michael Jackson even more than his infectious and contagious rhythms was what happened in 1985, when the song, “We Are the World” came onto the scene…propelled by Michael’s consummate desire to help the world…to help heal the world. Being the abnormally socially aware teenager that I was, I dreamed of the world, and for whatever unknown reason, I had a pull from even a very young age to do something–to help humanity and serve […]

Happy Birthday, Michael… You Were/Are the Gift in Our Mirror!

MJ heart fence 8.29.14 On August 29th, 1958, the world had changed. A soul had been born who’s mission was to bring hope, love, and unification to a planet that so needed unifying… and still does. In his lifetime here, Michael Joseph Jackson gave the world everything he could… his heart, his soul, his example, but most importantly, his love for who we all are, including this beloved planet.

Michael touched the heart of the world, because the world WAS his heart. In his undying and eternal love, he embraced and held us all. Yes, though it feels like he was gone way too soon, we all know he did more for humanity and the world than many who have walked the planet before. He was the one true world citizen–not bound by race, religion, nationality, or any of the other categories that limit the average person’s existence and experience in and of this world. Michael’s heart beat as ONE with all of ours. He sincerely cared from the depths of his soul and that’s why he touched so many, so profoundly.

He is the Man in Our Mirror… What Do You See?

Wow. I am blown away by the TMZ article released yesterday (http://www.tmz.com/2014/08/10/michael-jackson-maids-pee-poop-filthy-neverland/)  about the “maids” who painted a very ugly picture of Michael being unclean and someone who just peed all over his house. I am beyond speechless.

I promptly shared the article with my mom, Judi Brisse, because she, too, was a housekeeper at Neverland back in the mid ’90s during the very time when Liz Taylor and Oprah were there. She was enraged by this article and these horrible claims by her supposed “co-workers.” She stated clearly to me that nothing was further from the truth! That the house was impeccably clean and so was the “Boss.” She said Michael was not only clean, but respectful, kind and carried himself like royalty in his humble, gentle way. always.

This is a classic case of people who lack integrity and will do anything for money. My mom, too has been contacted by tabloids over the years wanting “dirt” and stories about Michael. She simply doesn’t have any stories (other than positive ones) and has denied their requests, despite their offers to her for money.

It is a shame that, in general, our society is so unhappy within our souls […]

How Michael Speaks… All Things Are Connected

I always continue to be in awe and humbled by what I have dubbed the “Michael Miracles” in my life ever since the late ’80s. These “miracles” aren’t necessarily miracles, rather synchronicities (which some might call coincidences, though I don’t believe in coincidences) in which Michael has “shown up” in various ways to guide or communicate something to me. And the ways he has done this over the last 30 years has been nothing short of amazing and usually leaves me in greater awe of this magical journey called life and how everything is absolutely connected.

Two nights ago I was walking with a friend past a local bookstore in Santa Monica–one I have passed by many times over the years. Yet for some reason, being the lover of bookstores that I am (it’s where I used to spend many hours in my early 20s and 30s reading everything), I have NEVER been inside this one. Why? I don’t really know.

So while I was engaged in conversation with my friend, I found myself pausing for a such a brief moment while looking at the books displayed in the windows of this bookstore. I knew this was a specialty store, more of […]

Once Upon a Time… The Future of Neverland

Once-upon-a-timeAs I sit outside here on a beautiful summer evening in the Santa Ynez Valley, I am moved and overwhelmed with the sights and sounds of these incredible moments. I see the crescent moon and millions of bright stars shine overhead while listening to the harmonious chorus of crickets singing their night songs. There is a nice warm breeze that feels comforting as I write. What more can be said about the beauty of these magical summer evenings? Nothing really. They can only be felt in the soul.

Looking up at the sky and, in essence, looking into our very history and biology—that being the stars themselves—I ponder the meaning and purpose of life on this planet like I have ever since I was little. I feel like I have a better understanding of who we are as souls and why we are here living this life than I did as a little girl, yet in the same moment, it still all remains one unfathomable mystery… a profound one at that. Who are we? Really…? It’s a question that never truly goes away and it’s one that is never really answered.

The “big” news […]

Remembering MJ… Love Lives Forever

Originally posted on June 25th, 2014

There are those certain moments in life that we will never forget. We know exactly what we were doing and remember the details as though it was just yesterday.

June 25th, 2009 is one of those days/moments in my life. In a way for me, it was like the song, “American Pie”… the day the music died. It was the day–the moment–that the death of Michael Jackson was announced to the world. Oh my God… how could it possibly be? I will never ever forget the shock as I read the headline on the internet… “Michael Jackson Dies of Cardiac Arrest.” I felt like I had been slammed in my heart. Total disbelief. But though, in truth, even though it was Michael who died, his music, his love, and his spirit surely didn’t. Instead, it lives on… alive… forever and ever.

A lot has happened for me in these past 5 years. It has been ever since that moment that I have been writing and working on finishing my book, Michael Jackson: The Man in Our Mirror, A Reflection of Our Collective Soul. It was my hope that I would’ve been able to publish and […]
