April 18th, 2021 - Honest, Grateful, Alive & Playful
Take a moment to reflect on these adjectives and see how your body responds. Like the way it feels? Living in these attributes is a gift we are offered by Spirit. It is our choice to accept the gift or not---a choice that can be made in every moment. We have the ability to change our minds! This week we explore how to take on these qualities and express them with more joy and full engagement in life.
April 11th, 2021 - Living Above the Line
The way you want your life to look is limited only by your imagination and your willingness to engage in living from a place of high integrity and abundance. The “playing field” of life is as big as Spirit itself! We often become so goal- and destination-focused, we forget that the quality of life is determined by the string of little (and big) choices we make every day, all the time. If there has ever been a year in which we have looked a little deeper into how we live, it has been this one! Where shall we go
April 4th, 2021 - Surrender To Grace
The Easter story is familiar to all of us. And every year we have a chance to see what the story of death and resurrection means to us in the context of our own lives. When Jesus died to his human life, he surrendered himself to God completely. In this he allowed the promise of life eternal to come to its full manifestation. Lucky for us (and as demonstrated by the example of Jesus), we don't have to die physically to be reborn continually! Our surrendering to God on a sincere and regular basis prepares us to receive exactly what is required for our spiritual growth and fulfillment. And we are blessed abundantly, in ways we had not yet imagined!
March 28th, 2021 - Perfection in the Completion
Our lives are a constant spiral of encountering the parts of ourselves that are not yet made whole. Just when we (foolishly) think we have handled all our challenges, something old or new arises that leads us toward greater fulfillment. We are constantly letting go of that which no longer serves us, and embracing something that is better aligned with Truth. The journey of Jesus into Jerusalem was his letting go of the life he had led so that he could demonstrate the greater glory.
March 21st, 2021 - Which Way to the Watering Hole?
We have often heard that humans are made up of approximately 60 to 70 percent water. We also hear that if we’re thirsty, we’re already a little dehydrated. Spiritually speaking, it is no different. So, how do we become good stewards of our “Source” before we’re desperate and depleted?
March 14th, 2021 - Light in the Darkness
Do you judge your experiences as “good” or “bad?” Sometimes these labels short-circuit us from moving through them with grace and truth. Even as Jesus the Christ had his moments of doubt and fear, he quickly turned back to God. Can we say the same?
March 7th, 2021 - Oneness
In New Thought teachings, the word “Oneness” often dominates our meditations and conversations. But what are we discovering or uncovering in our contemplations? On this “New Thought Day” let’s honor our revered founders and metaphysical teachers by exploring what they had to say about it!
Feb. 28th, 2021 - Putting Your Best Brain Forward
Would it be okay with you if your life were more serene despite outward circumstances? How would you like to be more compassionate in all your communications? Let’s flex those “brain muscles” and discover a depth we might not have imagined. God DOES change our brains better than we can by ourselves!
Feb. 21st, 2021 - The God You Understand
We are conditioned from an early age with definitions and qualities of God that are dependent upon our family messages, the church (or not-church) we attend, and societal programming. In order to experience God, it is important to explore and question these patterns of belief and become willing for God to be “something else.” In the process, we discover how our brain changes, thereby shifting our view of life and our role in it. Are you ready to get MYSTICA
Feb. 14th, 2021 - What Is God Anyway?
Most of us were conditioned to think about God in a certain way, assigning a gender, a pronoun or two, certain qualities, a judging eye, and actions in favor of or against us. We might still point to the heavens or talk about “the man upstairs.” These were beliefs and ideas that may have served us in the past, but they hinder our spiritual growth today. They limit God to the horizon of our understanding without allowing us to step into the mystery of the Divine. So let’s start dismantling any remnant of previous conditioning and discover how our EXPERIENCES of God have informed us!
