As Spiritual Beings, We Are The VALIDATORIANS.

George Burns once said that if we asked lots of people in the world what would make them happier, you’d get answers like a new car, a bigger house, a raise in pay, winning a lottery, a face-lift, more kids, less kids – probably not more than a hundred people would say a chance to help people. And yet that may bring the most happiness of all.

Ultimately, how can we truly help others. We can offer temporary relief to an individual who is in pain or undergoing difficult times. We can offer to pray for people and sit with them during their moments of sadness. One of the greatest healing ingredients to add in someone’s life is to validate them. As spiritual beings, we are the VALIDATORIANS.

When we validate where someone is and from that love, safe and sacred space there is a healing that can occur. Most people are longing to know that they matter and someone hears them. How many times in your own life have you had a medical concern and the real relief came when the doctor said, “This isn’t anything to be concerned about.” It is such a relief when the doctor validates your diagnosis. We long to know that we are loved just as we are.

Life is calling upon us everyday to live and give more of who we are.. the authentic self. There is an inner calling, a silent voice wanting us to validate the truth of our nature and we reflect this consciousness by the way we empower and take care of ourselves. As I validate the value of my own Christ consciousness by taking care of my physical and emotional life, I experience more of my Holy-ness.

In traveling around the country and teaching stress management classes, it shocked me to discover how difficult it is for most people to take care of themselves. And yet, if we could learn to work with our values in life, we would see that the greatest impact we can have upon others is to live a life worth living and set an example. Jack Boland, a great Unity minister in writing the Mastermind Principles finished the 8th step with the following idea: I dedicate myself to be of maximum service to God and those around me, to live a manner that sets the highest example for others to follow and to remain responsive to God’s guidance always.

To me the greatest joy we can bring to our spiritual nature is knowing our inner worth and giving to this life the joy of living. We experience happiness by helping others and we help others by discovering who we are.

Ideas to Process and Integrate – Part III

Ideas to Process and Integrate – Part III

We are all created from a place of wholeness, but, if we are always treated as broken and driven to be perfect,we will not be able to fully self-express. Begin the new practice of connecting in a deeper way to nature and seeing the nature of all of the events as part of your sacred story, then you will…

Aim for connection rather than perfection. Begin today to observe, in your interactions with yourself and others, when you are into connection and when you are coming from perfection. This new way of looking at and expressing your ways of being will totally transform you.

Ideas to Process and Integrate – Part I

The key to individuality is not being free from working on something; it is how the something is working through you. When you are not you, you hurt you and you die a little. Take the time to write all the areas and moments of your life in which you are not truly being you. (This does not mean you will…

The Universe

The Universe

Describing the universe cannot define it. The universe is vast, infinite and beyond definition. Just when we think we are able to describe it either scientifically, astrophysically or qualitatively,we discover more. The Universe, reflecting the essence and power of God, continues to expand and to grow. We cannot avoid or deny the effects of living…
