Letting Go Of Pain

During the annual season of Lent, many people have observed prayer, and releasing of their bad habits since the first century. The idea is to give up something or release it to the Divine and do it consistently for forty days. These 40 days (plus six Sundays) begin on Ash Wednesday and end on Easter Sunday. The season of Lent begins on February 14th and ends on March 28th, in 2024. Is there something you would like to see change…

Principle Four

Through affirmative prayer and meditation I connect with Divinity and bring forth the good in my life. Principle Four Prayer and meditation is my link to higher thinking.  Everything I need  already exists in the invisible world (kingdom of God or quantum realm). I use affirmative prayer to bring good things into my life. In Unity we use affirmative prayer rather than begging or pleading with a  God as if distant and far off. This prayer method involves communion with…

Principle Three

We are co-creators with God, creating reality through thoughts held in mind. -Principle Three Setting Your Intention, Trusting The Process, Acting On Your Guidance Human beings create their experiences by the activity of their thinking. Everything in the physical world has its beginning in thoughts.  It has been called the law of manifestation or the law of attraction.  But the idea is the same.  We have the power to create. We create our life experiences through our way of thinking,…

Principle Two

Our essence is of God; therefore, we are inherently good. This God essence was fully expressed in Jesus, the Christ. Principle Two The 2nd principle of Unity reveals the nature of the human being and who we really are from a spiritual perspective.  We are made in the image of God and have the spark of Divinity within.  We are inherently good. Our first nature is love but our secondary nature is ego.  How we choose to express it is…

Principle One

“There is only One Presence and One Power active in the universe and in my life: All loving goodness of Divinity. God is the source and creator of all. There is no other enduring power. God is good and present everywhere.” Principle One The universe operates according to a higher spiritual principle of life, growth and expansion.  A principle is a rule or law that never changes.  It applies to all people, everywhere, all the time.  Gravity is a law…

The Power Of Faith & Resolve

Are you ready for a fresh start?  Is your switch of faith turned on?  We will be exploring how to resolve the negative attitudes, unhealthy habits, and past mistakes in your life.  It is time to make up your mind and begin to do the things that, for whatever the reason, you may have been putting off.  “If not now then when and if not you then who?”  We will throw away our list of excuses and start telling a…

Advent: Joy

We light the final candle of advent in this lesson.  It is the culmination of our spiritual journey that has brought us here.  The example of Scrooge showed us how we can make the changes necessary to experience an abundant life of joy. It is now time to rejoice and give thanks for our process.   The journey has taken us from hope to fulfillment, from sorrow to joy, from wandering to realization.  You are invited to drink a full cup…

Advent: Love

Love has come, is come, and shall come to all of us when we are ready to receive it.  We are at the part of Dickens, “The Christmas Carol”, where Scrooge is being visited by the Ghost of Christmas future.  This is the third and final revelation he needs in order to experience his transformation.  All of us can get a glimpse of our future reality by looking at our current life.  We shall receive more of the same!  Does that…

Advent: Peace

In A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens shows us the life of a broken and bitter man and his transformational journey to peace of mind. This is a metaphysical story with many life lessons and truths to glean from it. Scrooge represents the worst of how low we can sink when we give up on life. We see what happens when fear and regret take hold. There is a little Scrooge in all of us. There is also great possibility and…

Truth, Lies & The Power of Release

True power is love, kindness, and sharing your life with others.  We are all infinite beings that deserve to be loved and appreciated.  We were meant to be the vessels of joy and happiness.  This is the promise of spiritual empowerment and enlightened living. We will remember our well-being when we understand the Truth that lives at our core.  Some lies need to be addressed to make room for this good life.  Your body already knows the difference between Truth…

Communion: The Power of Release

Communion: The sharing or exchanging of intimate thoughts and feelings. This exchange can be on a mental, emotional, or spiritual level.  Communion is a moment of grace and inner reflection. The ancient ritual of drinking wine and eating bread can be a beautiful way to remember our divine connection.   We discover more freedom and understanding by feeding on the words of life and drinking in the teachings of truth.  We also gain clarity about our true identity. Our blood contains divine DNA…
