Elizabeth Taylor: Beautiful Enchanting Spirit

Channeling "Violets and Violence"...

Some of us have spirits like hurricanes and learn how to tame them. Others have spirits like lambs and learn how to roar. I did neither. I was happy with the hurricane. I learned how to channel it. I knew I would never be tamed.

Michael. I want to talk about him right away. This author (Heaven Leigh) is not obsessed with him any more than I am. Which probably means she is very obsessed with him. Ah! You see - this spirit is a lamb inside of a hurricane inside of a lamb. Astoundingly dangerous, but only to himself. Michael Jackson (this ancient healing spirit who has lived in many forms) is the ocean's current, the warmth of the sun, the moon's mesmerizing glow. And you thought King of Pop, Rock and Soul was over-the-top when I said that?

Michael incarnated as Michael Jackson to heal your world in the best way he knew how. His spirit and all he left you as his legacy will spread in a never-ending ripple effect of LOVE and decency and hope and infinite wisdom. His love is just beginning to REACH you. Those with hardened hearts and minds will never see his beauty. It is no less spectacular in the presence of small-mindedness than it is in the presence of understanding hearts. MichaeLOVE to you all! He is a light that will never be extinguished.

Heaven Leigh is not introducing me, because I need no introduction. And that isn't arrogance speaking, it is experience. You don't get these violet babies without some violence, Baby! Many lifetimes, many loves. Don't laugh. Ok, go ahead. Many loves in one lifetime. Yes, but that was because I never learned how to love myself...until I met Michael. Then I spent much of myself trying to teach him to love himself. Oh, but sweethearts, this is not about Michael or me.

A Butterfly is a Messenger...

...but people tend to pay more attention to a FIREWORK!!! I was a firework and a butterfly. Most of us are. Lovely Katy is a butterfly firework empowering others to be so. Emerge from that cocoon. Spread your wings. Dazzle them! She's my kind of firework. I love her spirit.

But this isn't about Pop stars either, my darlings.

The author chose to listen to us - transcended spirits - and then chose to speak primarily with the voice of one, because she feels the deepest connection to that one. Yet we all are ONE. How does this make sense?

You've heard it said that spirit is pure love? What is love, dear hearts? What is "pure spirit?" I can only speak through Heaven as her filters allow. You can only hear spirit as your filters allow. Throughout our lives we are layered emotionally - many lifetimes - many layers. Each layer can act as a conduit or a shield. We can use our experiences as windows and doors to open or windows and doors to close. Do we shut down when we are hurt? Do we open up more? It is up to us.

When we feel hurt, there is a lesson there. Something or someone is not best for our energy. We can remove ourselves from the person or situation and still find that same type of person or situation over and over. Life can then seem torturous. But it is all our choice, or series of choices that make it so.

Pure Spirit...

I've heard it said in many ways...Hollywood...books...songs, all of which have their ways of explaining spirit and what happens when we "die." What happens when we ascend, transcend, or however you like to put it. Movies and Star Trek are wonderful places of exploration. What a wonderful theme to muse upon.

What is true? How many stories do you have? Is a goat true or is a horse true? Is black hair true or is blonde hair true? Is a rose true or is it a daffodil that can be trusted as the "one true flower?"

We decide what is true for us. I like violets and gardenias. I love roses too. Why should we limit ourselves so much when it comes to "what is true?" about eternal things?

Some things, if taken as truth, can hurt us. Is the arsenic harmless Baby? No? Okay I'll have some in my drink. You do have to use wisdom - common sense for the common sense world. But limits were made for limited mortals. You made them yourselves. You can "unmake" them anytime you wish.

Pure Spirit: "All we are is love. The only emotion we can feel is love." True - but a lie. In pure spirit we are not less emotional than humans. We are MORE - in everyway - MORE! We just have MORE control, MORE understanding, etc. But do not think we are LESS THAN. Who would want to be spirit if we were all "dumbed-down" versions of humans? To be on a higher plane, more evolved is not to be LESS THAN in any way, shape or form. Love runs the entire gamut of possibilities. It is the deepest intensity, but entirely manageable, which is to say that nothing harmful is sent into the universe when pure spirit is "angry." Anger coupled with perfect patience is not harmful. I can be angry about a circumstance or situation, but do not throw lightning bolts at people for creating the situation.

Heaven (the author) is far too worried/nervous at the moment to allow me to continue very deeply into the "why's and how's" of human suffering.

The best way I can gloss over that gently is at the very least to say that - if "God" or "Goddess" or "Source Energy" were either doing or allowing this, God, Goddess or Source would be very cruel. An entity or entities setting herself/himself/themselves over humans to create, guide, reward or punish them would be LESS THAN what some humans have accomplished in their lifetimes of enlightenment. Source energy is far MORE than this.

A more pertinent question might be - why do humans allow suffering? Something to think on, my love.



Note from author, Heaven Leigh...

Thank you for reading what this beautiful and amazing spirit had to say through me today, as fully as I can translate. There is always something to be lost in the translation, yet I enter the flow in the best way I know how. I hope it resonates with those who need or want the information. Her voice is clear and strong in my mind. Each voice I channel shows up as their recognizable voice or personality, as known in their most recent life. As I ask for that incarnation to speak through me, or as they introduce themselves and tell me they would like to do so, I listen and write.

I thank them for their messages by ending the channeling with initials TY - and the first initial of their name, in this case "E" for Elizabeth. Thank You Elizabeth.

To understand spirits as many lifetimes (many not at all famous) is to better feel the interconnectedness of all souls. Spirits that I have encountered do not see themselves as better or more famous than any others. They do not measure themselves as better than us. We are all on our paths to learn and grow. Some will come back through into the human realm, or have many times already, in terms of sorting out the whole space and time thing.

I am beginning by publicly channeling those that others may be most interested in, because of our societal gearing to be hungry for all things "celebrity." This isn't my favorite way, but it is a place to start. And there are celebrities that are beautiful and kind spirits, not all "glory hounds" and egomaniacs. The latter type of spirits would not speak to me anyway. I believe, as other spirits have explained, that those baby spirits simply go in for more training in the heavenly realm. That's the best way I can explain it. What we feel as "evil" people are immature spirits, either stubbornly so, or there to strengthen our muscles. I don't want to explain "evil" spirits because I want to diminish rather than celebrate or focus on these traits.

Also, why I have opted to channel the famous ones who have resonated with my spirit, is because when I channel my personal, very close spirits, it may be much more painful to write it out. I love hearing from them in my life, yet I also miss them in this world. Bittersweet. The intensity of my feelings for them may make it difficult to clearly channel their words, but I might try someday, if it seems they have something to say to a wider audience. I also feel VERY close to - have a strong bond with - one spirit that I may have only met in the spirit realm. It seems that I have know them in other lifetimes or will in future ones. We have soul-contracts together, if you will. I'll try not to bore you by focusing too much on just one, but that one will most likely make his way into each channeling. And those spirits that I feel close enough to, to channel, will most likely be connected to that one in a profound way. Interconnectedness. It is what it is.

All spirit is basically saying the same thing, whether it be Elizabeth Taylor or Mildred Griffin (my grandmother). All they really want to say is - love yourself and love each other. We are so much more than we realize. We have so much more power to change the world to exactly what we wish it to be, than we begin to realize. That's really what they want to say and most wish to have understood by us.

Keep Shining! Keep living your purpose. If you don't feel that you have been living your authentic purpose up until now - change. Much can be accomplished one step at a time. Now is the only time you have to start. Believe in you. I do.

Light, Love & Laughter - spinning, sailing and flying to you on the most magical of breezes! ~h~

      Oh wow, how beautiful what Liz Taylor had to say! I simply loved it!

      Much love to her and to you, Heaven!


      (PS: her words are as beautiful as she is!)

      Thank you Mary, for your wonderful comment. So many connections with us - that's really interesting!

      Oh yes - Michael and Elizabeth are so tied to each other in so many ways. And it is heartwarming that he had her in his life - and she had him in hers. :) She truly wanted to be next to him in death as well, and their resting places are very close at Forest Lawn. It is a great love story in itself, if not a "traditional one." ;)

      Love this piece, Heaven! Have you done any more from Elizabeth since this one? There are some interesting coincidences for grandmother's name was Violet (or Vi) you know how close I was with her? and her birthday was 23 February, this significant date you mention. You can see why Michael and Elizabeth would be so drawn to one another, such a sameness of souls....and how interesting he told you the date she would pass...I also understand how much more difficult it is to hear from those close to you..I will send you something on this that I have received. MJ loves ET (never thought of ET as being Elizabeth!)

      Love and thanks xxx

      Awwwww! I think you added pictures since I last saw that Hub, BraveWarrior. You are so adorable! Yes, I did see the one of your mother before. Very beautiful!!! Just went and looked again. Wow.

      I would love to see more pictures of her!

      Thank you for your supportive comments. You are the one that told me to branch out. There are a few spirits that helped me with my first book. Michael's is always the strongest voice. He told me that Elizabeth would pass on the 23rd. I thought he meant Feb. 23rd, but it was March. He loves her spirit so very much.

      Here is a crazy piece of connectivity trivia for you: In the scene from "Singing in the Rain" when Debbie Reynolds, Donald O'Connor and Gene Kelly are singing "Good Mornin'" the calendar in the kitchen is on March 23rd. Crazy, huh! Considering the connection with Debbie and Elizabeth - that is rather amazing. ;)

      Much love to you! And how cool to have a mother who looks like Elizabeth Taylor!

      P.S. I will not make a career of channeling "celebrities." I only "know" a few voices like this, and they are all connected to Michael's message. ;)

      Heaven, this hub does not have your voice. It is that of Liz Taylor. I have always believed in you, but this solidifies my belief. I'm glad you are sharing with us because that is why the spirits talk to you; they have a message they could not convey in their human form.

      On a side note, my mom looks like Liz except she's got dark brown eyes (look at the picture on my poem Hearts and Rainbows. Mom looks like a young Liz. Today she looks like an older Liz. I'll have to email you a picture). I'm the only one in my immediate family with blue eyes. Sure wish they were violet, as purple is my favorite color!

      Michael says it best himself, dear MORPHINE, "We can fly so high. Let our spirits never die..." (Heal the World).

      His spirit is still with us. My feeling from him is that he had lives of service to the world before his Michael Jackson lifetime. I feel that he is in between lifetimes now, or has gone on to be a helping spirit to all who need him. He will not live as "Michael Jackson" again here on Earth. Those 50 years he gave us as Michael, were incredibly difficult and painful for him, though the joy of knowing our love for him and his music is so healing to his spirit now, as it was in life.

      We see him in kindness that is invested into this world. We see him in children's smiles. We see him in ourselves when we emulate his kindness. MichaeLOVE to you, and a sincere appreciation for your love for Michael's beautiful spirit.

      Thank you so much for your beautiful comments, Shining Irish Eyes. Butterflies are indeed such wonderfully magical message bringers. :)

      Thank you for the Patrick Swayze information. What a beautiful spirit HE is! I remember reading of the devotion between Patrick and his wife. Inspirational love story! I do believe in love after life... ;)

      Many blessings, smiles and hugs, ~heaven~

      Heavenleigh my dear kind soul. I am learning so much and broadening my subconscious horizons when reading your insightful hubs. I am fascinated at your capabilities as well as your ability to positively harness them for positive use and enlightenment.

      I recently reviewed an article conscerning the gifted soul of Patrick Swayze. Beside the fact that he is extremely handsome and was from my generation, what amazed me about this soul was his never-ending care he showed nature. He was attempting to complete a 200-year tree sanctuary at the time of his passing and having almost completed it, he now assists his wife in the process. He stated he had no regrets because he seized life at every opportunity.

      Elizabeth Taylor seems to be similar with her endless acts of humanity as well as her amazing accomplishments with HIV/AIDS.

      I thank you for this continued forum you offer and look forward to more.

      Sending the white light around you.

      By the way, my brother always comes through to many of us with the use of butterflies. Thought that was rather uncanny.

      Blessing to you friend,

      Hugs - Shining Irish Eyes

      What a life she had! I remember Cleopatra. It was a glorification of her romance with Burton. One had to be alive during the period. Thank you for the memories.
