Dear Ones,

Happy New Year!

Thank you for the many kind messages following my blog regarding the auto accident on Dec 3. . I am doing much better these days. Recently my husband, Bhima, went to measure the distance in which we were airborne… and it was 35 feet! When I heard that, I felt another wave of gratitude and protection. Thank you again for your prayers and kind words.

I kept a part-time schedule with the zoom healing prayers. I had to stand up because of the tailbone pain – but my healing has now progressed and I can sit on the sofa on two pillows arranged in just the right way to create a sort of plush crevice to sit upon… I found that I could pray more easily when I was sitting instead of standing; it was a relief to go deep into the healing prayers again.

My new schedule for January will be to lead prayers 4 days a week – Monday through Thursday. (I will give the times, below.)  But you now need only one link for all of my zoom meetings, except Wednesday, which is hosted on a different zoom account and is co-hosted with Jitendra. Join us if you can!

  1. Monday  – 7 pm Pacific Standard Time.
  2. Tuesday  – 5 pm
  3. Wednesday – 12 noon –
  4. Thursday – 8 am

As time goes by – I may open up the weekend prayer slots again – but for now, I like the ability to be a bit more spontaneous on the weekend.

There is a chance that I will be traveling to see my parents this month to make up for the visit that was canceled due to the car accident.

In closing, may you be blessed with inner peace and joy today on Yogananda’s birthday (January 5).

Thank you for channeling divine energy and all the healing prayers by you and all those on the healing prayer council to so many souls. Sending you, and all, infinite love and waves of Aum.

  4. Oh Mary, just hearing of your accident. Thank God you and your Bhima are okay. I always have sensed your very active sense of being held by God and the Masters. This was a literal holding. Sending love and all manner of healing prayers. Such a scare makes me ever more grateful for your powerful presence and the gift of you alive here with us.
    Aum, peace, amen,
