What is Sacred

What is Sacred

We have gone amiss by losing the sacred art of ancient rituals and symbols in our culture. It is evident that we want these rituals and symbols, however, because of the popularity of books by J. K. Rowling and Dan Brown and films such as Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones. We long to understand infinite wisdom through mystical teachings, signs, codes, and symbols.

Many of us have been influenced by such writings as the Bible or the Koran or symbols such as the cross, yet we have been deeply lacking in creating symbols and interpretations of our own. The archetypes, symbols, and signs that are unique to our own GPS are essential for us to feel connected, tuned in, and energized.

Stories are just stories unless they become our own stories and we can use them, and symbols are simply symbols unless they anchor, heal, energize, or reveal us. The symbols and signs that are revealed to us through our deep meditations are not only ancient medicine; they also work for us because we created them out of ourselves.

A number of years ago while in upper state New York, I was invited to do an energy healing for a woman who had been sick off and on for a long time. As I worked with her, I kept feeling the presence of a very large cow. I said to her, “This is odd to say yet I must tell you there is a cow’s energy all around you.” She began to deeply cry and stated, “That’s Daisy. Daisy was my show cow when I was a little girl. One of the greatest loves of my life.” I told her Daisy was still with her and encouraged her to get out an old photo of Daisy and place it where she would see it on occasion. It would keep the invitation of an open heart in front of her and remind her that love never dies.

True love brings us to the acceptance of our wholeness.

When Did You Die?

Too many people have come to accept death as an ordinary way of life. We expect people to lose heart, lack enthusiasm as they age but dying in the middle of your life is not natural. I know, because I talk to people whose energy seems dead all the time. As a spiritual leader, people…

Describing the universe cannot define it.

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 in an infinite universe.  It is more than our…

Very simply stated fear is the absence of love.

Very simply stated fear is the absence of love.

Fear is the feeling that we are separated from our Source. The way out of fear is to focus upon love and gratitude. FEAR = False Evidence Appearing Real. Most facts fueled by negative thinking can create situations which appear to be real. When we turn away from the fear and turn to God,we know…

“Trust your hopes, not your fears.” – David Mahoney

Someone once said that fear is False Evidence Appearing Real. The reassurance when we are seeing a frightening movie is knowing that it is just a movie. Have you ever thought you heard a noise in the middle of the night and before you knew it, you were hearing so many noises that you vowed…
