To the unknown, the quiet and perhaps forgotten ones
You of love and light
You of kindness and compassion
I write these words for you…
To the ones who whisper to me
The answers I need
Allow me to think I came up with them myself.
To the ones who lived the way you lived,
Not for fame, notoriety or fanfare,
You who did all that you did for no other reason,
except that It was good and right and holy.
To the ones who lived life fairly
and kept the common good In sight.
Be here with me
Be with me tonight
Guide me always.
You who were the ones that chose not to judge
Yet leaned on discernment and trusted it would hold you.
You, who had the gift of sight, saw through the veil
and used it only for good,
You who came from different lands over many seas
Your mix of blood runs through my veins
may your wisdom flow there too.
You who cried and laughed
and found the courage to dance
through turbulent and changing times.
You who never sought after notoriety, fame or glory
but for what was right and what was holy.
Be here with me
Be with me tonight
Guide me always
You who wrote and sang of love
Who stared at the same stars I see tonight
and who watched the sun slowly rise again in the morning.
I write this prose for you.
For all of you, who painted and potted and prayed.
You who plowed the field or laid the brick and stood tall
with an inner knowing
That everything you did was done not for self-glory
but because it was good, right and holy.
Be with me here
Be here tonight
Guide me with your love and wisdom always.
Miriam Venus 2013 (revised 2017)
Think about the mood you're in right now.
Think about its repercussions on the world around you.
Its ripple effect.
If your are not thrilled about how you are experiencing life at this moment
Acknowledge it. Own it.
Then think about what you can do
to go about changing it,
Before you drop it on the world around you.
Alchemy is that magical power we all possess within us
and can put into action.
Think about using it by
counting your blessings...
start with just one and see what happens.
Notice something beautiful and amazing in its simplicity.
Such as the tiniest stripe on the smallest of flowers.
Wonder to yourself "Why is that there?"
and then realize
it is there to awaken you and free you.
Fill your eyes with the hidden wonders all around you
feel the warmth that swells within your soul.
Look at something in nature closely
and allow yourself to be Wowed
Work magic by telling someone
that you love them.
Write, dance, sing!
Step beyond the mood you are in
and smile at a stranger.
Smile at the stranger in the mirror
and seek to get to know him or her better.
Find the courage to forgive someone
or yourself for that matter.
Take some action, no matter how small it may seem,
within your own life to transform it.
Find the wherewithal to make a small yet simple decision
that will start that process.
To love. after all, is simply a decision.
Selflessly set out to change the world around you
the world within you.

Kind Words from Others
Miriam is a truly gifted healer. The first time I worked with her, and every time since, I immediately felt safe and secure in her presence. Her senses and allies guide her to a deeper knowing of the individual she is working with and she works intuitively to shift the energetic patterning from there. She listens beyond words and sees beyond the physical body and through time. She reflects honestly and reminds each person of who they really are at their core. I have felt her work resonate powerfully within me and the ripple effects of positive shifts in my life as a result of returning to my own essence. I cannot express how grateful I feel to have had the opportunity to work with Miriam
