APRIL 2024

April showers!! We certainly are seeing a lot of showers here in the UK! according to Wiki one of the major causes of the often heavy downpours is the position of the jet stream. In early spring, the jet stream starts to move northwards, allowing large depressions to bring strong winds and rain in from the Atlantic.

With all this rain we can expect to see much growth over the coming weeks and months, and thankfully it will also get warmer, and opportunity to walk out in nature without the heavy wellies, overcoats, and brollies!!

~ Blog & Prayer by Reverend Dr. Dawnecia Palmer, Fall 2023




Dear Lord and Life, Governor and Keeper of all that is committed into Thy care, Master of thoughts wind, waves, The One-unique-verse, LIFE Itself,

Please on this 1st day of September 2023, by your sweet and most glorious, perfected, hallowed self, oh yes hallowed and never hollowed Self, reign. For in fullness you reign supreme, above as you do below, around as you are amidst, yeah, yes, you reign –  evenly purely, goodly, effectively, fully – always. Aww yes Blessed Always, at the centre core! In all of these wonder-full, excel-length,  awe-Full,  numberless names we call you, for indeed there are countless inaudible names, not yet written in this tiny man-fashioned vocabulary of ours.  I activate each of them and with pure intention pray,  intercede,  making my thoughts audible, to request your patronage, your attention, your presence, power and grace, your forgiveness and your guidance, my dear Lord, dearest law of the universe. Oh yes, I pray for your leading.

Lead and guide. Lead and guide us please, sweet Pacifier. Pacify, guide, and lead, and cause hearts to look to thee, to look to you to lead our ships, this mortal temple of ours, in the ways that lead us to good, to be good, and to do right, in our thoughts first of all.
Yes. Please, lead in this our mothership – of organs, and nerves. Fully cement, fix, afix your signature of goodness in our conscience, tune, and fine-tune us until the needle of our awareness and inner resolve is set to be, and to do good, is in direct likeness to thine own goodness, even as the long and short needle of a clock’s interface when perfectly aligned as one, strikes the midday and midnight gong, so in like manner, acutely atune us in likeness, until all, all our attention and awareness, is made conscious, of your goodness, as our very own! Until one is found in person alike, as was pre-destiny, pre-designed be good, so very, very, good.

May goodness rule, and overrule as necessary, our stubborn wills. to save us from wondering, and straying, into useless, wantings, longings, lustful, and yearnings.

Please, O please, attend our way, and as you do, let us awaken to this truth. And not only am I asking for your leader-ship and guidance, to the way, but to awaken in our awareness the liberating truth that you are the way, the peace we yearn for, the goodness we requrie, and the supply we need.

So, on this first day of September, rebirth us in our inhalation, on each breath, an acute awareness of goodness, possibility, joy, and  everlasting stream of opportunities. Let this, be so for me, and  everyone else, especially, for the youths and our elders. Releasing us from  bondages of ancestral pains.

Lead, and guide those in government offices,  and those with titles of leadership which entiltes them to make demands on those under their leadership to do good and to perform well, may they lead and guide having first been guided and led by goodness themselves. For it is only until leadership leads from an acute awareness of goodness within, can there be any peace at all, or safety on our streets. For it is only when goodness reigns supreme in wills, that destruction, pain, and loss shall cease.

As I started, dear Lord and Light, Governor and Master good, I commit these words, humbly asking you to lead guide and protect, throughout the rest of September. Amen and Thank you.

A Prayer for September was written and read by Reverend Dr Dawnecia Palmer aka #LadyDP #LadyP

A Prayer for March

~ by Lady Dawnecia Palmer

“Life as Light, in God, through goodness come to us, now. Lighting our days, and making clear the path for us to trod.

Moving from the dark of winter towards the brightness of Spring,  warm our hearts, still our fears, and delivers us from worry, hatred, blame, deceit, and many threatening dangers; which, oftentimes  blight our joy, hinder our peace, and disturb our rest.

As the new month of March begins, and planetary forces prepare to endorse environmental changes on our world;

Life as Light, ready us too, by stirring a deeper, keener awareness of what is possible, so that with open hearts and ready mind, allow your  kindness, love, and light, to fill our days and nights.

Let your brightness guide and lead, to heights of joy, and, unending realms of peace, till souls truly satisfied, in stillness rests. 

Amen. Ashay.”

January 2023: A Thought for the year ahead

As we enter the New Year, fresh hopes, opportunities, possibilities lies ahead for each of us. It is how we approach each day that makes a year great, or I should say, makes a great year.

So, in the upcoming days, weeks and months, I am suggesting that you reflect this thought, perhaps jotting them down somewhere for easy access, and then reciting them out aloud each day.  “I will approach all my days this year with hope and joy. I will try my best to see the good in everything and everyone.   I am responsible for my own happiness, and I endeavour to do so.  I choose gratitude over complaining, and peace over worry. “

Now, if you have just read the paragraph above, or better still, if you did as it suggested and owned the words as your own truth or wishes, then, I can assure you that you are already on route to a great year ahead!

2023 Affirmations Calendar available @ SoulLife Publishing House

I wish you Wellnessology, and success in all you do this year. May your days be ecstatic with hope.  And each week filled to bursting with amazing testimonials, so that by the time the year comes to an end, you will be able to join me in the  resounding joy-filled acclamation – “2023 has been a fabulous year for me!”

We give thanks that it is so, and so it is. Amen and amen.
