Let the light in to your consciousness!

Today I was feeling overwhelmed by a set of circumstances. I couldn’t seem to lift my thought above the limiting situation and into the spiritual realm of hope and divine possibilities.


So, I decided to pray, and I read an article called “Focus on the silver and wheat”. The author writes,


“Even as I fretted about these situations, though, divine Soul’s strength kept coming back in response. Id’ strengthen my mental position with what was at first a meek, humble affirmation that God loves us, that God knows we are good, that all is well, that we all deserve good in our lives. Eventually, the more I pulled myself up with these ideas (holding thought, as Mary Baker Eddy reminds on page 261 of Science and Health, ‘steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true’), the more I strengthened my hold on the substance of Christ’s teachings: the wheat, the silver, the stability, the abundant grace for all humanity.” (Christian Science Sentinel, 2.13.12)


What the author wrote about was exactly what I needed to do!  So I did and this is what I discovered:

Each divine thought (or “angel message”) acts as a light in our consciousness. If we are troubled with fear, worry, or regret there is a lot of darkness in our thought.  Divine ideas (with their signs of peace, hope and assurance of ever-present Love) are a light that casts a warm glow in the darkness. Turning on one light, or letting in one good thought, reminds us of the good.  Ahhh…that feels good! 

So we let in another and another and…more light! Soon our whole consciousness is filled with light.  We remember that joy, happiness, health, and abundance are natural in our experience.  We let go of the problem and in this way we turn it over to God.  This is called “letting go and letting God” or as Christ Jesus said: “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33)


So, the next time you feel like you’re in the dark, turn on the light!  Let in one good thought and see how the light multiplies.  This gets “you” out of the way, and leaves radiant room for God to supply His spiritual solutions.



How do we find missing items?

Have you ever had something go missing?  I’m sure you have; we all have!

Recently I misplaced two essential items, and after searching in all the usual spots, I couldn’t find them.

What to do next?

Well the tendency would be to take human action to deactivate the lost items and move forward in replacing them.

However, I decided to apply the spiritual, metaphysical truths that I know from my study of Christian Science to find a solution.

The first instance was my passport.  I needed to have it renewed for summer trip.

There are a few places that I usually store my passport and I searched them.  All along I’m thinking “Why isn’t it in the folder I made for it? Where did I put it?”  I tore apart the garage, luggage and files in boxes.

It did not turn up.  I kept thinking, “I don’t know where it is.  I can’t find it.”  Well, from my study of spiritual metaphysics I know that statement isn’t exactly true, or helpful in finding something, and I caught myself.

I know that Mind is intelligent, sees all and knows all.  Mind is another name for God.  So, I began to think (or meditate or pray) about these things:  I reasoned that Mind knew where my passport was; and because we (man) are one with Mind, I could know where it was too.  I stopped searching (very important in trying to find “lost” items) and simply went about my business thinking about these concepts.  I sat down and an image came to mind of an envelope.  I recognized this envelope as one I had taken to the DMV a few weeks prior with all my important documentation in it including my passport.  And another image came to thought, and I knew the envelope was in the bottom drawer of my filing cabinet.

I went to the filing cabinet and there it was.  I might add there were other important items in the envelope too – my marriage certificate and a bill – which I needed for upcoming tasks, so it was an even bigger blessing than I thought it was.

I was planning on writing a blog about this.  And then this I morning my husband pointed out that we hadn’t seen my set of house/car keys for a while.  We were heading out for the day to an activity which would be handy to have an extra set of keys for.  I thought about recent bags I had carried and coats I had worn and knew they weren’t there.

As we were getting into the car, I remembered sometimes putting them on the workbench in the garage.  I checked and they weren’t there.  But as I was moving some winter snow pants I heard a jingle in the pocket.  I looked inside and there they were!

Here I only had a minute or two to find them before we left, and there they were, just as I was getting into the car. I was very surprised and thankful!

I’m so grateful for the solutions in each of these circumstances and to have glimpsed a bit more of infinitely intelligent divine Mind, which we are all one with.

Life Lessons and Spiritual Insights


I spend a lot of time looking forward or enjoying the present moment, but sometimes I seldom look back at the progress I’ve made and give thanks for the lessons and spiritual growth.


This next blog series is going to share these spiritual lessons – metaphysical and practical – that I’ve learned along the way through the challenges and joys in previous years.  Or the “I wish I knew this then” moments.  Many of these were learned in growing up, through teen years and early 20’s.


Let’s begin…


Love yourself.  Cherish you.  Do not condemn you.  Be nice to you.


If you are loving and nice to yourself, you naturally and effortlessly are loving and kind to others.


“Blessed (happy, spiritually prosperous) are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.” (Matthew 5:7 Amplified edition)


Don’t judge others, or compare yourself to them (though I see this is challenging since the world is always saying we have to compete to get somewhere).  Everyone is valuable and equal to God.


Keeping your focus on God and what He is seeing enables us all to be blessed.  And what does God see?  “God saw all that he had made, and it was very good” (Genesis 1:28 NIV my emphasis).  This means God saw everyone that He made, each opportunity, as very good.  See the good in everyone, including you, and in every moment.  If you see good in everyone, you will see God.


“ Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” (Matthew 5:8 NKJV)


Pure motives and thoughts allow us to see Soul, and Soul blesses us, inspires, moves us, and satisfies the longings of your heart.


In fact, Jesus has already given us the spiritual answers and practical lessons we need in his Sermon on the Mount.  The Beatitudes, coupled with the rest of the Sermon, are the recipe for healthy, happy relationships, minds and bodies and a secure sense of our finances.


Stay tuned for more insights.  And, as always, feel free to be in touch if you need help with any of these.
