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.

What do you believe about heaven?

What do you believe about heaven?

In Unity, we believe heaven is a state of consciousness which is realized by living in the present moment.We do not acknowledge heaven in the traditional sense,as a place in the sky or a piece of property with pearly gates where all “good” people will one day coexist. It does not seem fathomable to us…

A New Place of Deeper Living

A New Place of Deeper Living

As long as we believe the cross is rugged, we will never outgrow the splinters that come with it. We will never learn to go with the “natural grain” of life—a cross of empowerment rather than a cross of deep, wounded rejection and disconnection. Dolly Parton was once quoted as saying, “Get down off the…

To Wish Upon A Star Is Progress, To Know That You Are One Is Evolution

When this idea came to me, I was not referring to being a celebrity or improvisation management. I was referring to being a unique and unrepeatable creation of Spirit.  When I was a teenager, I loved the crescent moon and star and had posters, rings and necklaces. The symbols were on my state flag of…
