Van Jones once said, “When it’s hard to love, love harder.” Doing that is high and holy work, that’s for sure. But what could be more important? Today, we look at how we can “love harder” in some very real and tangible ways. And, if you have been looking for ideas on how to put the spiritual principle of Oneness into action, today is the day for you.
Everyone has a lot on their minds right now about our world situation. What is on yours? Today, in an informal yet profound way, you get to ask whatever you would like to Rev. Michele and a panel of other Ministers and Spiritual Life Coaches. So come with whatever is on your mind and on your heart. We don’t guarantee to have all the answers, but we promise you will be seen, heard, loved and supported – and we will give it our best shot!
There is a lot about which we could be afraid right now, isn’t there? And, in our humanness, it is easy to go there every time we hear the news. That is totally understandable. But today, we will gather for a powerful experience in community of aligning with the One Power that transcends all fear. Be sure to be with us and be a catalyst for Freedom.
According to Ponder, we are all Wonder Women and Captain Americas because we are all equipped with Super Powers – abundance Super Powers, that is! They may not involve magic Lassos of Truth or boomerang shields, but they are mighty and powerful. Come today and find out what they are and how they can work for you.
Catherine Ponder writes extensively about the Law of Increase. Wallace Wattles in “The Science of Getting Rich” speaks of the “ever-increasing life.” Ernest Holmes says “The Power of Life within you brings to you increasing happiness and joy and greater material abundance.” Thomas Troward in “The Dore Lectures” wrote: “We may always rest in the happy expectation of something still better to come. . . . because the Spirit is in itself the Principle of Increase.” Um? There must be something to this idea of increase! Today we take a deep dive into this profound concept, thereby increasing our consciousness to increase our dynamic living.
Claiming the good that you wish to experience is often the key to manifesting in your life. It’s amazing how fast the universe moves for us when we dare to take control and demand our high expectations. Catherine Ponder calls this “The Prosperity Law of Command.” Join us as Rev. Sally explores how we can call forth the good in our lives!
We set the tone for our month today as we blast through some limiting, and possibly deep-seated, beliefs about living a prosperous life. Now if you don’t think you have any limiting beliefs about that topic, just ask yourself this question. “Am I experiencing as much of the Peace of God, the Health of God, the Joy of God, the Love of God and the Plenty of God that I would like?” And if the answer to that question is even a little bit, “no,” then be sure to be with us today.
Staying with “The Universe Has Your Back,” today we dig into two more Universal Truths: “Obstacles are Detours in the Right Direction” and “The Universe Speaks in Mysterious Ways.“ Embodying these two Universal Truths will move us to a great place of trusting Life regardless of what may be going on in our lives and, of course, to Living Big!
In “The Universe Has Your Back,” Gabrielle Bernstein lays out a variety of Universal Truths that won’t be any surprise to us, but that she presents in some unique ways. The Universal Truths we will explore today are: “You are Always Being Guided Even When It Doesn’t Feel Like It” and “The Universe Works Fast When You’re Having Fun.” So, come today and be deeply guided while having a bit of fun in the process! P.S. These Universal Truths also help us Live Big!
As we continue exploring Pam Grout’s book “Living Big,” today we bless big, give big and love big, realizing that, as we do, we expand more fully into who we came here to be and leap into a most extraordinary life.
In “Living Big,” Pam Grout writes: Living Big isn’t about making lots of money or having a Texas-sized house. It’s about having an intoxicating vision, about daring to look at the miracle of life without shrinking back. Living Big means having the nerve to find your own drum beat, sing your own song.” Today we bring that concept into our individual, personal lives as we think big, imagine big and play big!
Swimming, rafting and other water sports are certainly summer traditions. And in order to engage in any of them, we have to take a plunge of some sort! So it is in our spiritual life. We sometimes need to take the plunge of letting go of the old to bring in the new. Join Rev. Sandra today and take the plunge together!
During these "lazy" (hot!) days of summer, learning to surrender to what is and let go of those things that don't serve can be a powerful process. Join Rev. Sherry as we explore the wisdom in that process and in letting go of doing and allowing ourselves to simply be. It is in this place of openness that Spirit works Its magic and reveals Itself in our lives as Love, Peace, Creativity, Joy, and all of Its Gifts.
Today, we take another slice of wisdom from the Watermelon Credo and find several empowering ideas that serve us in creating deep connections with ourselves, with Source and with others.
Biting into a juicy, cold slice of watermelon on the 4th of July (and throughout the hot months) is certainly a refreshing summer tradition. Wally Amos, otherwise known as “Famous Amos” the cookie guru, found great wisdom in that tradition and wrote about it in an engaging book, The Watermelon Credo. In this book, he sets forth a Credo for living, which we will explore over the next three weeks. This Credo finds some powerful wisdom in a beloved summer tradition.
Hildegard of Bingen, the 16th century Christian mystic, spoke about “the green growing edge of our becoming,” referring to how we are all meant to grow in our awareness and in our inner knowing as expanding beings. As we conclude our month of exploring the road for living in joy, we will bump up against that edge and expand it out a couple of feet.
Creating something amazing isn’t necessarily easy. If it were, everyone would be doing it! But to live from God, as God, to God, it is our spiritual imperative that we be in the process of and making progress on our intentional creations. And, that is where our joy is found. So, perhaps you have raised your “upper limit,” but still aren’t feelin’ the joy. Well, in that case, you just might really good at creating “safe problems.” What are “safe problems?” Come Sunday and find out!
The profound and eye-opening answer to that question is (drum roll, please) . . . our “upper limit.” What is our “upper limit?” It is the unconscious ceiling we put on our ability to truly reach for what we desire. When our upper limit kicks in (and it can be very, very sneaky), we squash our process and our progress of intentional creation, therefore, squashing our joy. Join us today as we take a look at the variety of ways in which our “upper limit” stops us in our tracks, so that we can break free from it, get busy creating and raise our joy meter!
This month we have recognized and aligned with our inner creative power to succeed, acknowledging that success is God-ordained. As we succeed, we prove the fundamental spiritual principle of our Science of Mind/Unity teachings: There is a power for Good in this Universe, and we can use it! And there is one other thing we do when we succeed. We make a difference in this world! Join us today as we bring our theme to a close with two game-changing success principles.
Today we amp up the energy of our work together by moving into the vibration of celebration, thanksgiving and appreciation. Come be prepared to expand your appreciation for yourself and others and to learn the power of “The Poker Chip Theory of Success”! Intrigued? Perfect. Come find out what it’s all about.
Did you know that the average person has over 50,000 thoughts a day? And did you know that most of those thoughts are TO you ABOUT you and that 80% of them are negative? Those are startling statistics, aren’t they? What would your life look like if you could make 80%, 90%, even 100% of those thoughts TO you and ABOUT you positive and life affirming? If you could (and we say you can!), you just might astound yourself at what you are capable of doing. Today, you will learn a practical way to transform yourself for success.
Thomas Edison once said, ““If we did all the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.” Today we lay the foundation for astounding ourselves by exploring Canfield’s first two principles of experiencing a successful life. These principles probably won’t be new to you, but we will look at them in a new and highly personal way. Be sure to be with us today – you just may be astounded!
“Today I am Expressing God's Love, Being God's Light and Living God's Truth” is a perfect affirmation for our ever-expanding relationship of living as One in the Mind of The Divine. Breaking into or exploring the book “The Shack” by William P. Young (and the subsequent movie) provides yet another platform to get clearer and go deeper into the Divine of our Being. It's time to release any distorted thinking, kick our emotional baggage to the curb and be what we came here to be . . . God's Light! By the time we meet April 30, give yourself the treat of having experienced the book or the movie – or both.
How do you see yourself being one of the “1,000 people” we spoke about on April 2? How will the blessing you received on Palm Sunday come alive in your life? How have you turned up your light as a result of our Easter experience together? We will explore these question (and more!) as we gather together to make the past weeks very, very personal.
As we explore the metaphysics behind Jesus’ resurrection and ascension, we are invited into a renewed aliveness and a re-commitment to living a conscious, Spirit-filled life. And as we each begin anew with our personal renewal and re-commitment, we become beacons of greater light for the world. Come turn up your light with us on this beautiful and sacred morning.
