I read this quote on Rev. Pattie Weber’s newsletter and it really plinged a Truth Chord in me! Imagine, God the Power of the Universe is right here NOW with me, and with you.
We know God does not play favorites
(much to the woe of people who pray for their sports team to win etc.).
God is right here in the Big Picture and God is right here in the small details.
I feel that truth so often as I am pushed or pulled to accomplish something. Of course helping Steve plan this major NAIN Conference is a Big thing in my mind and yet every detailed step of the way we have been guided to do what is needed to be done with wonderful help and support.
Sometimes God, the Universe moves QUICKLY. This happened when I stood on my balcony saying to the Universe, I would love to have a labyrinth in my back yard. Before I knew it, the junk under the balcony was hauled away, the labyrinth area was prepared, the many trips to KRC Rock brought home the right river rocks and then we had our Dedication. We have been having Labyrinth Walks for 3 1/2 years now. Time flys.
On another note, we are redecorating our guest room and once I felt the urge to GET IT DONE, the Universe opened up so completely it was like waiting for me to catch up!
The old trundle bed and desk were sold so quickly on Craig’s List I was hardly prepared. Then I needed to repaint the room. After getting the paint at Home Depot, I asked the checkout lady about painters. She said she would inquire. By the time I got home, a painter was calling and we set a time for him to come over. Once done, I realized I needed a bed. With my daughter’s help I was able to order one and a mattress. The bed frame came a day early so my son, who was visiting, helped Steve put it together. It all seemed to happen so fast! I am so sure the mattress and bedding will also come quickly.
It is as if the Universe is saying GET IT DONE. You will need this bed SOON.
To God there is no big or little, no time limit, just the willingness to say YES to our heart’s desire. What is your heart’s desire saying today? What is it you feel the need to do, the push to get it done, the pull of something greater than yourself? From the smallest to the greatest ideas and desires, God is right where you are, with all the power, wisdom and intelligence available within you!
Call out from the deepest part of your soul and spirit. You are heard. You will be answered. Enjoy the journey!,
Who has the power?
In New Thought we often begin our prayers with…
There is only ONE POWER, One Life, One Mind, One Body and that power, life, mind, body is mine now. We acknowledge the Supreme Presence and know our Oneness with It! Sometimes we forget there really is only ONE POWER. I am no exception.
I have been ruminating for days about a person I need to connect with concerning the NAIN Conference. This person has the connection I need for a special performance happening during the conference. So far emails and phone calls are not working. This person just isn’t getting back to me. We were connecting occasionally a few months ago and now not at all. I keep thinking “passive/aggressive behavior.” Finally I tried having Steve call and I emailed a colleague. Finally in meditation this morning I realized I was giving this person the power to make or break this part of the entertainment.
GOD IS THE ONLY POWER!!!
That clicked firmly in my heart, feelings and emotions and I had a tremendous sense of peace. Yes, God is the only Power and God is orchestrating all the details of this conference. Ideas pop into our heads and we follow through. True Oneness.
So I surrender this unto God, the One Power knowing the Divine Outcome, however that looks will happen and I am at peace.
Emmet Fox said, “Turn Away From the Problem and Think About God.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson writes: “For it is only the finite that has wrought and suffered; the infinite lies stretched in smiling repose.”
So I am stretching in smiling repose, centered, trusting, and knowing GOD is the only Power and all I need comes to me with grace, and ease.
Today whatever you have need of, remember to put your faith and trust in the ONE POWER and surrender unto It.
A Special Prayer and Gratitude for Sandra Comeau, who was our Labyrinth Mentor and is now walking labyrinths with Spirit
We had a wonderful World Labyrinth Day Walk last Saturday! All came with the wish of a sunny warm day and was pleasantly surprised at the day being mystical and magical as God’s Dewey Kisses came down upon us at one point during the afternoon.
The sun came out at various times as well. We were blessed with both the light of the sun, and the cleansing of the rain. Each person who came shared their energy, love and compassion and received exactly what their hearts needed by walking the labyrinth. One lady had been praying to find “Cradle Catholics” who she could connect with. As we introduced ourselves around the circle, we found many were “roaming/cradle Catholics.” We were also happy to have ladies from the New Thought, Eckankar and Buddhist tradition. Some had followed many faith paths on their journey in life. We had a true Interfaith Connection and felt our ONENESS with each other as we felt our ONENESS with the global community who were walking labyrinths around the world.
Here are some COMMENTS from some of those who attended:
I am thrilled to meet like-minded women that also happen to be roamin’/cradle Catholics! I’ve been looking for my tribe. Thank you for today, it was lovely, the rain seemed appropriate, cleansing somehow.
I just wanted to thank you Dr. Abigail and Dr. Steve for yesterday, I enjoyed my first labyrinth walk, I am currently thinking of starting on a new spiritual path with Sister LaVerne, I thought about that as I walked and it helped to clarify some issues for me.
But I especially enjoyed the warm and caring fellowship with all that were there, and the calm and peace that was present, and the beautiful prayers and the sharing. What a beautiful day !!!
Thank you, Rev Abigail, and thank you and Rev Steve for facilitating a beautiful celebration of world labyrinth day yesterday. It was very special!
Thank you Abigail and Steve for a wonderful magic World Labyrinth Day. I think there will be much light that comes from today’s circle. I am still riding the wave of beautiful energy from the labyrinth walk and your sacred space and all the people.
Blessings for your ministry.
Thank you so much for inviting me yesterday. It was a pleasure to meet with some of the Poway Interfaith group and get to know a little about the organization. And the Labyrinth Walk was really a wonderful vehicle to help open the inner connection with divine spirit.
I was out and about today and meeting
many people on all my errands. Each one I
met greeted me warmly, had a funny story to tell or just had a kind attitude. It made me realize again how KIND people really are.
We are ALL wired to be Kind and Good. It is
our true nature, our Spiritual essence. We come from God, from Good, from Love, From Kindness. That is who we are.
It is lovely to be reminded of the Truth of our being.
Come celebrate that Truth with others at our home this Saturday May 6th on
WORLD LABYRINTH DAY!
This World Labyrinth Day Walk is being celebrated in at least 200 countries where people will be walking, and connecting energetically, emotionally, and spiritually with everyone around the world. Labyrinth walkers will walk as ONE at 1:00pm in their time zones. It will be as a wave of healing love, goodness, peace, beauty kindness and connection circling the globe.
Walking a labyrinth is walking a sacred path to the center of your soul. You are connecting with your God Self, Higher Power, Divine Wisdom, however you wish to call Universal Intelligence It is here where you may receive guidance, grace, a feeling of gratitude, new ideas, healing, cleansing, change of direction, and whatever lesson you need to learn and/or action you need to take. It is a spiritual journey and a powerful tool for personal transformation.
Come walk with us this Saturday. Be part of the Global Community
and make a tremendous difference by raising the consciousness of goodness and kindness around the world. It will be as if we are holding hands with people of all faiths, cultures and countries.
We will feel our Oneness, our Sparks of Divinity
in the One Family of God.
