Morning wake-up

Daily prayer for yourself is so important! It’s the most productive form of self-care I have found. Praying for yourself first thing in the morning, before you even get out of bed, is the best way to start your day on the right foot.

This prayer includes affirmations of who God is, who you are as God’s child and God’s law of health, harmony, and grace that is guiding and governing you. Become aware of God’s presence and remind yourself of who you are as God’s image and likeness until you can really feel Spirit’s calm presence and power surrounding you. You will feel and know that Spirit is the very essence of your identity.

This type of prayer treatment awakens you spiritually! It’s invigorating.

So start your day right. Give yourself the best gift with this spiritual bath. It will replenish, motivate, and inspire you. ūüėÉ

Health and healing

We all want to experience greater health and healing in our lives. It is a natural desire to experience spirituality in a way that blesses, heals, and inspires.

How do we heal? By allowing the presence, light and love of God to fill your consciousness so there isn’t room for anything else.

Become¬†conscious¬†for a single moment that Life and¬†intelligence are purely spiritual,‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČneither in nor of¬†matter,‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČand the body will then utter no¬†complaints.1

When we allow our consciousness to be transformed by God, we can be healed. Healing happens when we see what God sees! God sees perfection, harmony, peace, and wholeness. God knows you as an infinitely beloved and perfect child. You are made in His/Her image! God is delighted with you and in you! God wants only perfection, goodness, and grace for you.

When the illusion of sickness or sin tempts you, cling steadfastly to God and His idea. Allow nothing but His likeness to abide in your thought.2

God has given you power and authority to resist anything that isn’t good.¬†You can resist and overcome sickness, limitation, or fear.

Stand porter at the door of thought….Take¬†possession of your body, and govern its feeling and action.¬†Rise in the strength of Spirit to resist all that is unlike¬†good.¬†God has made man capable of this, and nothing¬†can vitiate the ability and power divinely bestowed on¬†man.3

Keep your consciousness focused on Spirit — on the presence and power of God’s love — and Spirit will form you anew!

Holding your thought to the good and the true, Spirit will form you anew.4

Wonderful interfaith event

20180419_140242.jpg

I am grateful I had the privilege of being on the planning committee for this wonderful interfaith event. This was the 38th Annual Women’s Interfaith Conference in St. Louis, Missouri.

A beautiful group of women have been planning these wonderful conferences each year since the early 80’s. There is a new topic each year. The theme this year was “Holy Days – What, When, How”.

I loved learning about the diverse faith practices of each of the faith traditions represented. From Ramadan to Rosh Hashanah, Easter to Buddha’s Birthday, we had the opportunity to learn about each these diverse holy days and what they mean to these women of faith.

My favorite portion were these final questions: what do the holy days mean to you, what language do you pray in, and how can we carry the peace-building message of interfaith to the world.

There was such an atmosphere of peace, respect, and inclusion in the room. The qualities of kindness, thoughtfulness, and love were truly uplifting.

It is affirming to see what is possible in the example this diverse group of women sitting in the same room, listening to one another, and sharing their stories. It inspires hope!
