I have said it many times and will again: I have always done everything I could by myself, and I can do lots! But I have also asked for help, or visualised or call it many things, prayed maybe, but in a way where I really believed I would have help from the invisible world, and it works! It really works! I do not call those powers "lord" as I don't see myself as a servant or slave. I don't know how it works, only that it does. And in mysterious ways. In miraculous ways. It is wonderful.

Now your day has started, and mine is finished. I have just slept my way through TV, but am still sleepy enough for the night. First a shower, though, I hope it does not wake me up.

Zzzzzz.

GG.
