Fire in My Heart



Fire in My Heart

(country western song lyrics, music garth brooks ballad style)


There is a fire in my heart

It burns so deep and so bright

livin’ my life doin’ what’s right


Is it only just me

why can’t they see

how good it can be


with love in your heart

and peace in your soul

we won’t fall apart

ain’t nothing but a big black hole

when the fire don’t start



Is it only just me

why can’t they see

how good it can be


I can’t be the only one

don’t say it can’t be done

with love in your heart

and peace in your soul

we can all be made whole


Passions burning deep and bright

living life doing what’s right

we all have to see

just how good it can be

with love in our hearts and peace in our souls……

Journey of Souls

Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives by Michael Newton


This came to me via my Facebook feed.  It intrigued me as I am always searching for answers that have to do with the meaning of life and one’s purpose.  What really intrigued me about the book is that the prior to the book and his experiences with his clients in hypnotherapy sessions which led to the information presented in the book the author was a self proscribed atheist.  In other words this man had no agenda and  nothing to prove.

What a perfect vehicle for this type of information to come through as a skeptic.  Someone who would use his scientific mind to explore the information that was being sent from the other side so to speak.

Here is the book description from

Book Description

Publication Date: June 30, 1994
Learn the latest details and most recent groundbreaking discoveries that reveal, for the first time, the mystery of life in the spirit world after death on Earth—proof that our consciousness survives—in Journey of Souls by Michael Newton, Ph.D. Using a special hypnosis technique to reach the hidden memories of subjects, Dr. Newton discovered some amazing insights into what happens to us between lives. Journey of Souls is the record of 29 people who recalled their experiences between physical deaths. Through their extraordinary stories, you will learn specifics about: 

·How it feels to die 
·What you see and feel right after death 
·The truth about “spiritual guides” 
·What happens to “disturbed” souls 
·Why you are assigned to certain soul groups in the spirit world and what you do there 
· How you choose another body to return to Earth 
·The different levels of souls: beginning, intermediate, and advanced 
·When and where you first learn to recognize soul mates on Earth 
·The purpose of life 

Journey of Souls is a graphic record or “travel log” by these people of what happens between lives on Earth. They give specific details as they movingly describe their astounding experiences. 

After reading Journey of Souls, you will gain a better understanding of the immortality of the human soul. You will meet day-to-day challenges with a greater sense of purpose. You will begin to understand the reasons behind events in your own life. 

Journey of Souls is a life-changing book. Already, over 165,000 people have taken Journey of Souls to heart, giving them hope in trying times. You should read a copy, too.

I have read the book and it resonates as truth for me.  It does make me wonder if someone from the other side is trying to reach me?  I am in the process of reading Dr. Newton’s following book, ” The Destiny of Souls.”
In the interim I also came across the book, ” The Afterlife of Billy Fingers: How My Bad-Boy Brother Proved to Me There’s Life After Death [Kindle Edition]” by  Annie Kagan.
The information in this story did correlate with the information that was presented in Dr. Newton’s Book.  I wonder if the author’s are familiar with each other’s work?

Book Description

Publication Date: March 1, 2013

Suffering from world-weariness, former singer/songwriter Annie Kagan gave up her life in New York City and moved to a small house by the bay. While trying to figure out what to do with her life, her brother Billy died unexpectedly.

A few weeks after his death, Billy woke his sister at dawn. “It’s Billy, darling! I’m drifting weightlessly through gorgeous galaxies and I feel a loving, beneficent presence twinkling all around me.” Was Billy real or just a figment of her imagination? InThe Afterlife of Billy Fingers, Kagan shares her unprecedented journey into the mysteries of the afterlife. Billy’s ongoing account of his celestial experiences is filled with transcendent wisdom, irreverent humor, and hope. The Afterlife of Billy Fingers will change the way you think about life, death, and the Universe.

Another time, Billy says, “If I could give you a gift it would be to find the glory inside yourself, beyond the roles and the drama, so you can dance the dance of the game with a little more rhythm, a little more abandon, a little more shaking those hips.”

In his foreword, Dr. Raymond Moody, author of Life after Life, explains the phenomena of walkers between the worlds, known to us since ancient times, but still surprising to way too many of us.

These are not the only books on this subject matter.  It seems there are more.  It seems that for some reason this information as to the true nature of the soul and the workings of the after-life seems to be filtering through.  To me it seems rather timely as I get exhausted reading about the depravities of humans and the cruelties that humans do to one another, the animal species and the very planet itself.  We have gotten so far off the track as evolving souls trapped by the mechanizations of the human body, mind and it’s desires we must somehow get re-grounded into a truth which enables us to evolve and grow as spiritual beings.  We were sent to create heaven on earth not hell on earth.
These books with their messages are creating a bridge between earth and the spirit realm.
I highly recommend them.

Every vegan should have a Yonanas in it’s kitchen.

I saw this gizmo at Bed, Bath and Beyond  for $49.99 and just had to have it (plus I had a $20.00 off coupon).

It’s an awesome little machine that’s easy to use and clean up and makes soft-serve like “ice cream” out of frozen fruit.

The following is the product description from the manufacturer.

“Yonanas turns frozen fruit and other flavorings
into a delicious, healthy soft-serve treat. The unit combines frozen bananas and any additional fruit or chocolate and instantly churns the ingredients to produce a treat with the texture of frozen yogurt or soft-serve ice cream, but without the additional fat, sugar, or preservatives. The chute easily accepts berries, sliced mango, or cantaloupe along with frozen banana, and the integrated spinning blade mashes and incorporates the fruit into a silky-smooth confection with the texture of soft-serve ice cream or…

Copenhagen takes the Gold……for animal abuse.

My Vegan Heart Blog


I know I said no ugly pictures would be on this blog but I’m sorry we can not just turn our heads to what was done to this innocent baby giraffe.

To say that I am incensed does not even begin to convey the anger and rage I am feeling at the moment.  If I lived in Copenhagen the asshole c.e.o. that allowed an innocent baby giraffe to be slaughter would have no rest because I would be heading the biggest boycott/protest.  Actually the only thing that would make me feel better would be if I could personally torture this pathetic excuse for a human being.

Yep I am one angry and pissed off vegan right now.

For those of you who have been distracted by the Olympics and are wondering what the heck is Ivonne talking about?  Oh and the Russian Olympics–well that’s a whole another rant right there.
