Hello Folks! In the past month, with everything being the “new norm” it can bring about a seismic shift in how we process change.
How many times have your heard the expression “Your not going to change him! (or her/them) This seems to apply frequently to people who are stuck in their ways or habits, seniors who like their routine or those who are just stubborn. Change and taxes are pretty much what humankind has lived with throughout the ages. Even the change called death.
Today however, we want to speak to you about the everyday changes as we try to adapt as our lives unfold. Remember we can only live in the moment, one day at a time. Lately it seems difficult to make long range plans or decisions because what happens every day changes rapidly. Especially now with the pandemic facing all of us.
Before you focus too intently on what is happening in today’s world, take a step back and check your state of mind. Are the changes you are making, or planning to make, done in the heat of the moment? Decisions you are making, are they rash decisions or those that will enhance your life.
How are your impulsive decisions affecting those around you, or those you love. Sometimes impulsive decisions can be fun for all. Taking that country ride right in the middle of a chore or work project. Making pizza for supper instead of that gourmet meal you planned a few days ago.
What we are endeavoring to say is change is a part of life.
Even tho’ everyone knows this, now a days this takes on a new deeper meaning. It feels more intense. Decisions seem to weigh more heavily upon us and the changes it brings. The more major the decision, the more it would be prudent to take that step back and look at your state of mind, and what is happening in your life right now. Then you know that a good change can be made. Thinking about it for a bit, you may change how that decision will work out for the betterment of all. As the song says, “times they are a-changin”
Hello Folks! With everyone practicing human distancing for the past month, it seems, at times, that it can be more difficult than we may think. We use to say that it would be wonderful to have more time! Time to paint rooms in our home, time to spend on the phone with friends, more time to FaceTime family who live far away, and just time to sit with a good book. We remember saying, we were so busy we didn’t have time to think!
It brings us to the topic of “clarity of thought.” We now have a world view of the stress people can be under with what is happening with the epidemic and we can see on television and social media, the world at large, coping as best they can.
Has this time to think changed the pattern of your thoughts? Have the old stereotypes of your thoughts changed at all. Have some things in your life changed because of your new thought process. Has it been for the better, more clear in charting a new direction. You will be surprised at how many of you will change a lot in your life; just because you may want to let go of things that don’t suit you anymore.
What serves you best now? Did your “clarity of thought” bring new vistas into your life. Did the world view stress factor have you change your thoughts of what it is you want to see in your life in the future. Maybe going back to what was, is more your style.
But really, will it not be different because you now think differently because of all that has happened? May “clarity of thought” bring about for all of you a clear direction. Remember “thoughts are things.” In your moments of clarity, make that clarity a positive for you. One that serves you better.
We have in our opening prayer a line that reads, “All life is growth, so we judge not ourselves or others.” May the “clarity of thought” bring a new horizon, a better way of being, a better way of living. God Bless!
Easter Sunday is the perfect opportunity to use your power of positive to send “peace to all, life to all, love to all.” Although Spiritualism is not Christianity, Hebrew nor Muslim religions, the commonality of Jesus of Nazareth is paramount. For Christianity Jesus is the Son of God, for the Hebrew faith and Muslim faith Jesus is seen a Prophet.
Spiritualism is the Science, Religion and Philosophy of continuous life. Our religion is based on proof! Proof of Life after Life and Jesus of Nazareth, our Brother Jesus, our Master Healer, proved this. This was a Miracle to prove continuous life to us and give comfort to all of us. Our physical life here is not the end of us.
Now much is written about group mentality. Dr. Carl Jung wrote about it in the book titled, “The Collective Unconscious.” When people unite in common for reasons that are tangible or intangible there is a unity of thought, word and deed. The power of thought is one that needs to be taken seriously and to use in a way that is beneficial to all humankind.
So as this new Easter day dawns, lets all band together in the perfect transmission of powerful thoughts. Thoughts of positive for humanity. Thoughts of the healing power of Spirit, positive, pure and loving. If everyone in the world would do this, the world would change over night! God Bless all of you this Easter Sunday.
Hello Folks! We know this message is happening at a time where it seems like we have come to the realization that we are in for the long haul with regards to the Covid-19 situation.
So how are you all coping with the new-norm? What is a positive, is the amount of information out there to help with coping strategies. Every tidbit of information is at your fingertips!
We might suggest that you keep your information searching, with regards to Covid-19, to once a day. You want to be informed, and not inundated. Being inundated with news causes fear. You don’t need fear, you need to be informed. You need information or coping strategies, not to be overwhelmed at the stats of the day.
As Reverends, we miss the personal touch with our congregation and our class. We are calling everyone we know, so if you haven’t heard from us, just call at (204) 390-6609 as we would love to hear from you.
Now is the time to practice what you have learned, and do the meditations, write your “Talks” and connect with your Guides. Make sure if you start to feel house-bound to go to a park for a walk. Remembering of course your human distancing factor. Fresh air and brisk walk sorts out many things and brings new perspective. God Bless to each and every one of you!
