Spiritual Awareness

PaperArtist_2013-04-19_00-49-29
Since the time I could remember how to spell my own name is about the same time I remember listening to my own intuition. The closeness to God was always there and intuition would play a part in helping me make many decisions in my life.

I was an amazing softball player because I knew from the beginning to use creative visualization long before Shatki Gawain wrote books about it. I was a successful New Thought minister and visualized a fast growing church which started in Stuart, FL yet along the way, I had not developed my own spiritual awareness.

I knew how to create yet I did not know how to discern the highest and best for my life. I knew how to allow my imagination to dream yet I did not know how to stop dreaming when I needed time to expand my consciousness and inner reality.

Spiritual Awareness requires a trained mental and emotional body. It is not something that you wish upon yourself or get from going to one or two self development classes. Spiritual awareness is something you become after you have awakened from a long sleep or after you have experienced an amazing shock (or shocks) in your life. It can also come because you are tired of being tired. It can come because the walls inside your heart ache. Spiritual awareness can come because you have had one final day of feeling either something is missing or you wish you were somewhere else. When you are in these spaces prepare yourself for the ride…spiritual awareness is right around the corner. It is yours for the taking.

Whole Self

Whole Self

When we live from a place of wholeness, then we are not experiencing life through the eyes of lack. Therefore, we can give freely of our time, our talent, and our love, for we know that the more we give, the more we will have to give. When we live from a place of wholeness,…

You Are A Modern-Day Mystic

How can words convey the depth and sweetness of unconditional love, the soul’s joy in coming home to God, the stunning revelation that despite all your errors, you are forgiven? How to describe the realization that your every thought and deed is known, and the bliss of being shown that your soul is pure, not…

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

I have been doing christening ceremonies for the past twenty-three years, and each time I invite everyone from the immediate “village,” who are there to support the child to come into a circle. I always ask, “What do you wish and pray for with this child?” The answers come quickly: to live his dreams, to…
