Imagine the Possibilities

“Everybody here on this plane is now ready to uplift whether they know it or not. If you can imagine right now that there is a tide that is rising and everyone is being lifted in this frequency, regardless of whether they know it or not, you will begin to understand that what is actually happening here is a global phenomenon.” Paul Selig, Book of Love and Creation

Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night feeling anxiety and dread, worrying about things that may or may not ever happen? Imagine what it would be like during those wake up sessions to contemplate a world of possibilities instead of thoughts of fear and dread. Imagine letting go of the worries of tomorrow and focusing on the infinite potential that await us.

Think about what the world would look like where we truly took control of our thoughts, prioritizing our desires rather than dwelling on what we do not want. While this wouldn’t magically solve all our problems, it would result in a calmer mind, a release of bodily stress, and a fresh perspective. As we see a greater potential for ourselves, we see that for others as well.

According to Joe Dispenza, the brain has the remarkable ability to form fresh neural connections and embrace new ideas. He states, “Spend time, contemplating who you want to be. The mere process of contemplating who you want to be, begins to change your brain.” As we shift to seeing things in a positive light, we raise our frequency. See yourself sending vibrations of love and peace.

We have an opportunity to send love where we see sorrow, to visualize peace where we see conflict, to recognize wholeness in the midst of lack. We look not at the appearances but at the infinite possibilities. We focus our energy and intention on a world that works for everyone.

See yourself sending vibrations of love and peace out before you. Affirm this attunement from Paul Selig:

“I am seeing those before me with love. I am love through the ones I see before me.  I am Word through this intention. Word I am Word.”

“I am choosing now to recognize myself as a Divine Being in full manifestation. As I am activated in Word, I rise above this planet. I rise above the limitations of this physical world, and I claim this: I am Word through all those standing before me on this earth. I am Word through this intention. Word I am Word.”

” I am choosing to see all that I see before me in Divine Love.”

Joyful Connections

“When conditions are sufficient there is a manifestation.”
— Thich Nhat Hanh

We made wonderful joyful connections! We talked and shared, laughed and danced and even shed a tear or two. 

Our Wisdom of the Heart Women’s Retreat was truly a celebration of the Spirit. Lauri Jones blessed us with her amazing voice, original music and united us in harmony. The beautiful forest at Alton Collins Retreat Center provided a sacred backdrop as we came together in love. We left uplifted, renewed, reconnected and recommitted to our spiritual practice.

Here’s what the retreat sisters had to say:

This retreat has opened up my heart to feel love again, to forgive more deeply and to further appreciate who I have become.

Connecting with other spiritually like-minded women was an enormous gift!

I call this retreat a soul tuning journey: being in the space which allows me to be completely protected while I explore the areas of my life that needs to grow.

I come alone and leave with a new tribe. The laughter, tears and very real sharing is heartfelt and I can feel it in the very core of my being.

I’ve been attending Rev Christine’s retreats for 10 years and they always take me deeper within myself.

I love the sacred, beautiful, healing container you create for us to come together and go deep into spiritual practice.

I love the mix of spirituality and fun, the peace of Alton Collins and the wonderful food that nourishes us.

I love Lauri’s voice, her style and her gentleness.

The Wisdom of the Heart retreats really do help reveal the Wisdom of one’s heart-self.

Rev Christine has a way of acknowledging each person’s experience in a way that values the person.

This was an opportunity to find time to rest and relax and deepen my spiritual awareness. I found new “sisters” and grew closer to the ones I already knew. 

This deeply spiritual retreat, as always, changed my life. It moved me from anxiety to wholeness and gratitude.

I appreciate the safe and trusting environment for all participants, allowing us to connect with each other and our souls.

World of Possibilities

“The only reason man is limited is that he has not allowed the Divine within him to more completely express.” – Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind

Imagine what it would be like during those 3 a.m. wake up sessions to think about a world of possibilities instead of thoughts of fear and dread. Can you imagine letting go of the worries of tomorrow and focus on the infinite possibilities that await us?

What would the world would be like if we took dominion of our thinking and focused on what we want instead of what we don’t want? Can you begin to imagine what it would  be like if we lived life from a daily place of gratitude and appreciation?  

Our problems won’t magically disappear. But shifting our thinking to what we want will calm the mind, release the stress in our bodies and give us a new outlook. We create new neural pathways in the brain and we are open to new possibilities.

Joe Dispenza states, “Spend time, contemplating who you want to be. The mere process of contemplating who you want to be, begins to change your brain.”

Change your thinking, change your life and imagine what the world could be.

——

“Cause every night I lie in bed

The brightest colors fill my head

A million dreams are keeping me awake

I think of what the world could be

A vision of the one I see

A million dreams is all it’s gonna take

Oh a million dreams for the world we’re gonna make.” 

                                    – A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman

Affirmation: I am willing to change my thinking and imagine an amazing world.

Choosing Faith Over Fear

“In fear, we forget who we really are. Forgetting who we are, we forget Who lives within us. And in forgetting Who lives within us, we lose conscious connection to our power.” Marianne Williamson

My neighbor was standing outside as I returned from grocery shopping. She greeted me and said, “I have a question for you. The topic came up in my bible study. Do you think we are in the end of times?”

I felt dismayed  she was asking this question on such a tough day. It was a challenging week hearing from friends and loved ones about their pain, loss and grief. The news can be overwhelming with stories of injustice, chaos, and uncertainty in the world. It was easy to fear apocalyptic prophecy in times like this. 

I stalled while I took the groceries out of the car. I shook off my doldrums and took a breath. I knew I had to be centered in my response. I affirmed what I know without a doubt—There is a Power and Presence for good in the world. I refuse to dwell on appearances but stand in the true knowing of the Universal Power that is love. 

I remembered the quote from Ernest Holmes…”In order to have faith, we must have a conviction that all is well. In order to keep faith, we must allow nothing to enter our thought which will weaken this conviction.”

Now I was ready to respond. “What I believe is happening—” She interrupted me mid sentence “There’s my ride, I have to go. Have a nice day.”

I watched as she got in the car and drove away. I laughed out loud. The universe has such a sense of humor. She uses every opportunity to bring me back to love. 

The Power Within

“Resolve that you will live and think and work as if you really believed that the whole Universe of creativity and substance were present in every project of your work and every transaction of your investments, as your never-failing resource.” Eric Butterworth

We’ve all been there. Struggling, agonizing, stressing and straining, trying to get the results we want and need. 

When that doesn’t work, we decide to change things— we reorganize, restructure, reshuffle, recreate, rebuild, and replace. This is called rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. The ship is going down, but we are too busy to notice while we are rearranging the outside appearances.

Oftentimes, we try to shift everything on the external plane and often forget the power of prayer,  the power of our connection with the divine. It is an inside job. Remembering our oneness with the Infinite comes first. In “The Law of Divine Compensation,” Marianne Williamson writes, “It is almost amusing when doctors say, “We’ve done everything possible. All we can do now is pray, as though God was simply our last resort, the one we go to when all the really powerful things have failed.”

It can be so easy to be attached to the results in the outside world. However, our true power lies within, where we make a connection to the Divine.

Marianne goes on to say,  “You are not asking that a force outside of you magically change external circumstances; you are asking that a Divine Guide within you change the nature of your thoughts.” The power lies within. Knowing our Oneness with the Infinite Invisible has far greater potential and power than anything we can reason with in the external world. 

Affirmation: I know my Oneness with the Infinite Invisible.
