When I was much younger the only place I considered home was the little farm town on the shores of Lake Erie where I grew up. When I was away from there I was always homesick.

Way back when I started this work with my spirit guides I began to get a different sense of what home really is—not just for myself, but for all of us.

Here’s Spirit.


You miss so much joy and peace by always looking for your happiness, your “home” in every place except where you are right now. Yet you will never find home, or the life of your dreams, anywhere except where you are now.

Home—happiness—are not places anyway. Home and happiness are not your relationships, your jobs, your money, your friends or family. Home and happiness are not anything or anyone outside you. They live within you.

It is only when you truly, deeply, and unconditionally love yourselves, love where you are now, that you will find happiness. Then you are empowered to live your life joyfully and fearlessly.

God speaks to you through your own voice, always and in all ways. God is always speaking and acting through you. When you trust and know you are God, you will have come back home again.

Then, wherever you go, you will be home.
