Guest Blogger/Author Feature… The Magnificent Diane Bourgeois
IAM so happy to introduce you all to my dear friend ‘The Magnificent Diane’ who I am very grateful to have recently met online via another dear friend Karin Finger. Diane is a devoted blogger who posts inspirational words on her online Divine Notebook reminding others how essential it is to dance, play, explore and flow with the universe. To feel the Divine connection in their creativity and express the magic of their unique inner light during life’s journey. At the end of last year Diane published her first book, a children’s book Aimee and Divine Inspiration, On a Journey that she was inspired to write and remind both children and adults of the magic that awaits them once they choose to explore beyond the physical mind/body experience.
I am going to gift Diane’s book to my grandson this summer when he visits Europe as I know how important it is to encourage our young ones to hold on to their innate magical beingness, especially around the 6/7/8 age when society begins to strip their natural beingness away and do their utmost to fit them in society’s box of limitation. My own children’s book simmers on the back burner.. maybe waiting for some wonderful tips from Diane about creating and publishing a children’s book. Maybe a great topic for a series of blog posts?
I know IAM going to enjoy following Diane’s journey further as she expands her love and wisdom, joining fellow Divine Sisters and Brothers shine light on the infinite potential there is beyond the suffering and limitation of our physical reality. I feel the collective love and excitement we are generating together, encouraging others to shift their focus from physical circumstance and choose to go beyond without the endless suffering this lifetime. Yes it is possible.
Diane shares her feelings on Compassion…
The word compassion derived from the Latin word pati and cum, meaning ‘’one who suffers’’. I often say to others that person has no compassion at all thus I believe our emotional boundaries set a past judgment. Our own emotional suffering is unstable and we protect ourselves by looking for someone or something to judge. We criticize something to go immediately to a fix-it mode.
Our suffering creates event in our lives causing emotional trauma opposing our boundaries, so we reinforce a resistance to fear. For instance, a healthy boundary is not allowing others to take your power away. An unhealthy boundary is settling your life for less and giving in to anything that is not aligned with your values. What if we stop for a moment and silent our mind to surrender in our heart? For one thing, it’s a daily practice to listen to our intuition and be authentic with ourselves. Let me share a meaningful quote from a Buddhist nun Pema Chödrön in her book The Places That Scare You, Chödron writes,
‘’When we practice generating compassion, we can expect to experience our fear of pain. Compassion practice is daring. It involves learning to relax and allow ourselves to move gently toward what scares us. The trick to doing this is to stay with emotional distress without tightening into aversion, to let fear soften us rather than harden into resistance.’’
What I love about Chödron’s definition is her honesty by experiencing our fear of pain instead of hardens into resistance. When we resist, we keep this hostility inside of us about a situation in our lives and we look for ways to blame. We are like radio waves ready to tune in to the positive frequency. But, our antennas are tuning in to other people energies and carry on the communication channel. We are here on Earth with free will and by following our own judgment it’s up to us to choose the right radio waves. We have a tendency to self-protect that vibration. By doing so we must be honest and forgiving about when we welcome the negative radio waves that create drama in our lives.
That negative radio wave sometimes gives you a push; other times you need a shoulder to cry on and sometimes you just need to be alone. Chödrön addresses such a person must be in your life for that Divine Timing because it’s not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. Such a person has found the courage to defeat the darkness of their souls to help others in their own darkness:
‘’Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well, can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.’’
Overall by adjusting the radio wave with love and compassion you will know what is bothering you and make peace with your emotion. The best advice I can give you to cultivate compassion is to erase false beliefs that fuel dislike. Gradually, allowing yourself to change the channel of your fear takes you to a shift in consciousness. And, listen to the whisper of your soul will give you a deeper connection to your intuition. When you are kind to yourself and act on your empathy, you have learned compassion and you’ll feel reborn with wisdom and strength. A great leader is to empower others that create a light that shines bright like a rainbow to help others in their own darkness.
I hold a Pharmacy Technician diploma from La Cité collégiale and have worked in the field for 20 years. I was a clairsentient as a child, and have become a magnet for profound spiritual experiences.
My early passions were for Interior Design and drawing at La Cité collégiale. In the Early 90’s I had a car accident that changed the direction of my life. After this experience I focused on the question who is God? I also researched the wounded soul and how to live in the heart extensively.
I received my spiritual calling in the year of 2000. I wasn’t ready to answer the call-as I couldn’t face my fear. In the 10 years that followed I learned many lessons of how negative entities feed off fear and confusion. In 2009 I injured my right leg, which changed the direction of my life again. Desperate for a change I followed my inner calling on an adventure of great change.
In 2014 the adventure of writing for adults to heal your body changed to something else. By the end of the year I enjoyed a rush of excitement, a sudden inspiration became a children’s book. I am the author of Aimee and Divine Inspiration: On a Journey. My emotional and physical response to the joy of reconnecting with the magic of my inner child led me to take the Certified Fairyologist course with Doreen Virtue.
I have spent over 15 years participating in my own unfolding to reconnect to the unconditional love I have experienced during my accident. I encourage people to reconnect with the magic within. I teach that answers are within and what we make of our own reality is up to our heart. I project this peaceful and spiritual place that we will anticipate to achieve one day in our creative force compass that resides in the heart spirit.
Aimee and Divine Inspiration, On a Journey By Diane Bourgeois
A review of Diane’s book…
The children book, Aimee and Divine Inspiration is featured in two popular magazines.
Aimee sets out on her life journey. Eager to discover the wonders set before her, she embarks upon her little vessel and sails away. Where will this divine river lead? What changes will it bring? Will she find strength and love as she drifts through the magical forest of dreams? Will the cave of shadows challenge her as she steadily navigates its course? Will Aimee find her rainbow, and acquire the greatest treasure of her life? There’s only one way to find out. Embark the tiny vessel and take the journey with her, page by page in this meaningful storybook. Reviewer: Darleen Wohlfeil, Story Monsters Ink magazine https://www.storymonsters.com/smi-book-reviews/2017/volume-4-issue-3
Aimee boards her boat Divine Inspiration on a journey to discover a relationship with mother Earth in this tale based on a Hopi legend. The illustrations are charming and the heroine inspiring. Although aimed at children, the messages and themes in this book will resonate with and be instructive for adult readers as well. A perfect gift for anyone interested in going forth on their own spiritual journey. Reviewer: Anna Nair, Self Unbound digital issue https://issuu.com/shelfunbound/docs/shelf_unbound_april-may_2017

Thank you Barbara for this wonderful opportunity!
My article became a profound message for myself. I was going through a hard time with my emotion a couple months back about one particular emotion I buried a long time ago. It seems the Universe gives you another lesson to see if you understood the message in the present moment. As I reread my article I realized my compassion was put to the test and I forgave myself of bringing the past into the present. Ah emotions! What you haven’t healed always comes back to see if you have learned what compassion is all about.
Thank you again Barbara and blessings to all who will read my article about compassion. xx00
