T&TPrimeMinisterKamla&Susan-4.5.2011-M.JPG (42801 bytes)Dearest Online Family and Friends: How are you?  We hope everything is going well for you and your family; and life is moving along wonderfully.  Even though it was nice taking a week off from writing, I somewhat missed "vibing" with you [due to it always being a pleasure keeping in touch with you weekly.]  Please know that we sincerely appreciate having this fantastic opportunity, and we thank you for always taking the time to read and correspond.  Your feedback is extremely helpful to us, and is so very welcomed.  (The picture to the left is of Susan Mangatal and the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago Kamla Persad Bissessar - 4/5/2011.)


My Heartfelt Thanks

flowers.greenery.jpg (6458 bytes)May…the exhilarating month of new growth, lovely blooming flowers and lots of beautiful greenery.  However, on a more personal side of things, it encompasses new beginnings as well!  Hum, as I reflect on May and on my recent birthday I must say not only was it about celebrating another wonderful year of growth; but it was also about the celebration of “CHANGES”, and of course new beginnings!  Yup, such like in my cyber world it feels like I have pressed the “Refresh Key” on life. 

Um…hum, this years’ birthday was truly sensational due to adapting a new environmentally friendly “climate” in our business, and even in our home.  Plus the spiritual cleansing and becoming clutter free was, and still is euphoric; due to my spirit, soul and mind being totally uplifted [which I absolutely needed since I am realizing NOW that my spirit was really “in the pits ” from the day my brother passed on in November.]  Honestly, weeding out the excess in my surroundings and in my life before my special day helped me to breathe easily again; and most importantly, has helped a great deal with everything being accomplished more judiciously and efficiently. 

Although, throughout my life my attitude has NEVER been “ABOUT ME;” but [my gosh...LOL] my husband "Todd" made this birthday totally “ALL ABOUT ME.”  He did so many things that made me smile…simple powerful and healing things that made me truly happy.  To him they were just simple; but to me they were huge, and it allowed me to be spiritually and physically comfortable.  And those simple accomplishments have made my special day the happiest and truly the best birthday…ever!  On this note…I must thank Todd for all he has been doing; and IS STILL doing on a daily basis to keep my life running smoothly, and which keeps me constantly beaming.  THANKS SO VERY MUCH TODD, and thanks for the nice gifts too.

What I wrote on my “Facebook” status a week ago came from deep within, and I repeat it here on our weekly E-Newsletter: 

"I am so humbled and full of gratitude for all the lovely greetings; the well wishes, blessings, prayers, and just the 2 simple meaningful words “Happy Birthday.” Please know that they all mean so much to me. It is absolutely wonderful to be recognized and appreciated by so many of you my Facebook friends, as well as personal family members and friends. I am extremely thankful for all my blessings, plus health and strength as another birthday came around. I pray that I see many…many…many more. Again, thank you very much for making my day extra special!"

Additionally, a large amount of our on-line family and friends took time out of their busy schedules to send me some warm greetings via e-mails; which has touched my heart greatly.  To all of you, I thank you for your lovely greetings, well wishes, and salutations.

A Special Note

JudgementDayBanner-L.JPG (27494 bytes)Well, the most talked about day is upon us.  That’s right…I’m talking about May 21, 2011: ”The Rapture”…”Judgement Day.”  As I write; all the news of the day [tornadoes and flooding], week, month and year thus far sinks into my brain.  And as I reflect on all the many devastating, destructive and fatal events/incidents that have occurred throughout these 5 months of 2011; it certainly appears to be “THE END; or that “THE END” is very near!  However, only time will tell!!!  I feel we all must begin to seriously get our life in perfect order, and live in a God like manner; with true and absolute Love and Respect for each other.  Even if it’s not the end; then perhaps you’ll be on the right track/road to accomplishing total success and true happiness.



Our friend and colleague Hollis Lashley sent us a very interesting and thought provoking “FlashPoint;” which he dedicated to myself and Todd.  After reading and absorbing the words; we felt they were seriously “DEEP;” and a bit peculiar since it described what we have been experiencing throughout much of our lives.  Most importantly, the words were incredibly motivating; and brought great light to our life and supplied answers to questions.  

Thank you Mr. Lashley this “FlashPoint” is absolutely “ON POINT” and is extremely motivational to us.  Read Mr. Lashley’s words below, as well as his “Flashpoint” entitled: "Blessed are the Weirdos."

Thought Provoking "FlashPoint" - Presented by Hollis Lashley

Hello Arious Family:

This week, let us pay tribute to Todd and Susan Mangatal who saw "Arious" as a possibility, and made it happen. Let us celebrate the unusual. Let us applaud those who are different in their thinking, those who bring about change, those who are not afraid to take the path less chosen, those who refuse to go along with the crowd just to be popular and accepted.  Let us be courageous enough to tip our hats to those who are not afraid to follow their own bliss for I believe that "Blessed are those who think for themselves, for they shall be rewarded by their consciousness of truth."

This piece is dedicated to those we call weird.


Hollis Lashley, Author, Gifts From the Heart

"Blessed Are The Weirdos" by Dawn DelVecchio

“Blessed are the weirdos” I say. Blessed are those of us who were ostracized, demonized and separated out as ‘different’ than the norm. Blessed are all those whose gentle souls could not and can not suffer the face of war, hate, petty tyranny, vengeance, cliquish groups, toxic foods, racist, sexist and classist oppression, natural resource pillaging and nonsense politicking.

As a child I, like so many now awakening, was given derogatory monikers like ‘weirdo,’ ‘freak’, ‘strange’ and ‘difficult non-conformist’ by peers, teachers and even some family members. Fortunately I found an occasional ‘freak’ like me here and there as I grew. Still, it wasn’t an easy road back then. And for many still, the road remains difficult, with conformity in the name of ‘normalcy’ encroaching into even our most intimate spaces.

It would have been an easier childhood and young adulthood if I could have fit in. But today, I think otherwise. No matter the ostracizing, bullying, and over-self-consciousness I went through, I wouldn’t change one darn thing about me then – or now.

Now, I’m the one feeling free, without fear, full of hope and clarity of mind – at a time that may well be the beginnings of our planet’s greatest darkness. Why? Because I – we – know the truth of who we are. We freaks and weirdos with hearts of compassion are, in fact, the way showers. And it is we who will guide humanity back to the light of a greater sanity.

Had we been ‘normal’, we’d now be lost in a miasma of fear, a la-la land of TV stupor, or prescription drug pain. Blessed are we, the ‘weirdos’ I say, for those who labeled us such have only done so from a place of fear, ignorance and the deep sleep of an enslaved consciousness.

If you resonate with what I’m saying, know that you are a part of the ever-growing group of people healing themselves for the betterment of all. You are on a journey which is much, much larger than your personal ‘stuff’. It’s a journey that will aid the entire human race and more so – the entire Earth.

Know that all you do in an effort to grow yourself spiritually, mentally and physically serves the greater good because when you are happy, worry-free, healthy and whole, you bring that gift to all others.

So as my favorite astrologer, Benjamin Bernstein likes to say, “let your freak flag fly” brothers and sisters! Know your are blessed and let the power of YOU heal all!

Many blessings,
