Are you feeling the Divine Energy of Spirit?

August 10, 2017

“Let us feel the divine energy of Spirit, bringing us into newness of life.” S&H 249:6

Powerful words by Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science.  Mrs. Eddy wrote such practical and simple ideas to help us feel the divine energy of Spirit and understand the omnipotence of God.

The Christian Science Board of Directors of The Mother Church,  The First Church of Christ Scientist in Boston, Massachusetts. established the theme for this year at the Annual meeting, 2017 embracing the concept of divine energy of Spirit in our church work.  Christian Science Churches, and Societies all over the world will be working to live and share that divine energy bringing newness of life into every action letting the light of Spirit and Love shine through. 

Mary Baker Eddy set up the perfectly balanced foundation for a Universal Church with every aspect of Christian outreach, covered in publications, Churches and Reading Rooms all over the world.

This year the First Church of Christ Scientist, Boulder was able to participate in a sidewalk event celebrating the 40th anniversary creation of a walking mall on Pearl Street in Boulder, Colorado August 3, 4 and 5, 2017.  The Boulder Christian Science Reading room was purchased by the  members of the Boulder Church in the 1940’s directly on Pearl Street.  The outreach committee and reading room team were delighted to be able to meet and greet people from all over the world, walking down the Pearl Street Mall during the celebration. The event allowed the opportunity to let people know they can look for Christian Science Reading Rooms around the globe and they will have a friendly place to come in and read, rest and study.

The hosts were able to give smiles greeting all who walked by the table with kindness and even offered cups of cold water.   The visitors were offered opportunities to take free samples of the book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy and other Christian Science literature. Attendants explained that the last 100 pages of the book were descriptions of healings that took place simply by reading the book.  Many visitors were excited by that prospect of healing and were happy to take the book.  Free Bible’s were available as the concept of  Science and Health was written as key to the scriptures and goes hand in hand for study.

The weekly Christian Science Sentinel, monthly Christian Science Journal, Herald and The Christian Science Monitor newspaper were also available for visitors to take.  Each gift publication had a large orange sticker on the back with the Church address, service times for Sunday and Wednesday and the Reading Room contact information along with the Church website. Each visitor was invited to come to the Wednesday service where they would hear about practically applying the information found in the Science and Health they had been given.  The out of area visitors were told where they could find church service times and locations, lecture locations and practitioners in the Journals we shared.  Many people just stopped to get a Christian Science Monitor and expressed how much they enjoyed the unbiased reporting.  The message from the visitors tells us how important it is to share our periodicals and services with joy and the divine energy of Spirit. People take books, and come to services because they are invited .  Offering to pick friends up or have dinner before a service is a great gift of Christian fellowship. How easy to give a cup of cold water in Christ’s name with all the tools we have to share!

We were delighted to have a family on the mall who was in Boulder for a wedding.  One of the family members worked at The Mother Church and had her Monitor pin on sharing the joy and divine energy of Spirit.

The Boulder church had just ordered business size cards with the church and reading room contact information on one side and 4 different sides with the Lord’s prayer, 23rd Psalm, Beatitudes and 10 commandments.  The children enjoyed receiving the “flash cards” with prior permission from the parent.  We also gave the cards out as bookmarks with our contact information when someone took a book.

The activity has blessed the community with friends feeling like they knew a little more about Christian Science and the Reading Room on the Pearl Street mall. International visitors were made aware of the global reach Christian Science has and will be looking for churches and reading rooms in their part of the world.  Two friends we met were in Boulder for a Physics conference working in Paris.  One guest from Spain and the other from Italy.  Both were leaving on Sunday and wanted to read the book on the airplane!

The committees to reach out and maintain the church are set up in every single church or society.  All the tools we need to share with others are at our fingertips online and physically with the publications that are perfect to regift to another in need of the message of the Truth that heals.  The Boulder church is taking the opportunity to embrace the divine energy of Spirit, bringing us into newness of life and make that be felt with every single church activity.  The time spent with other church family is a time to talk about how you are sharing the love with friends and letting your light shine. It is also a time to socialize sharing Christ as the way shower in getting jobs done.  We can invite our family and friends to join in the Love of sharing kindness and healing in all our committee work.  The world is looking for rest in Christ and we can share our joy and divine energy with them in the jobs we are doing.

“The vital part, the heart and soul of Christian Science, is Love.” SH 113:5-6

By simply living Love in all we do, the people we come in contact with the committees we serve on we can manifest and feel the divine energy of Spirit, bringing us into newness of life!

Divine Direction for 2017 Goals

December 22, 2016

2017-ccp-clean

As Christmas approaches this week, have you ever thought about how Mary and Joseph had angel messages to let them know about the birth of Jesus?  

How would you respond to an angel message?

Do you think that angel messages could help with trying to plan for 2017?

Looking for Divine Direction might be a joyful and rewarding way of living your life in 2017. Taking the Christmas message and using it every single day!  

Below are some of the thoughts that have been revealed to me through prayer in finding direction for 2017.  I asked myself…..what transformations of thought could be a high goal for this year?

The citations I studied come from the King James Version of the Bible and Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy.

I hope after reading and processing some of the verses you might think about Spiritual growth and how easy it is to get closer to God.  It’s all in your heart and if the desire is there, you will feel the light and love and let it shine on those you encounter. Your every need, total health and well being will be provided by God.

Let’s make 2017 better with Love! 

After some consecrated study I came up with a list of  #ThingsToDO to get going on a higher level of thought for 2017

What joy the Christmas story brings to all receptive to the message. 

#HowToStart

Psalms 46:6 10

Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

#Goal

SH 547:23

The Scriptures are very sacred. Our aim must be to have them understood spiritually,   for only by this understanding can truth be gained.                                                                         The true theory of the universe, including man, is not in material history but in spiritual development.

Inspired thought relinquishes a material, sensual, and mortal theory of the universe, and adopts the spiritual and immortal.

#HowToTransform Thought #prayer

7 | Psalms 119:12, 18

 Blessed art thou, O Lord: teach me thy statutes.

 Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

#Transformation

SH 264:13–20

As mortals gain more correct views of God and man, multitudinous objects of creation, which before were invisible, will become visible. When we realize that Life is Spirit, never in nor of matter, this understanding will expand into self-completeness, finding all in God, good, and needing no other consciousness.

Spirit and its formations are the only realities of being.

#Goals

SH 506:18

Spirit, God, gathers unformed thoughts into their proper channels, and unfolds these thoughts, even as He opens the petals of a holy purpose in order that the purpose may appear.

SH 517:30–31

Divine Love blesses its own ideas, and causes them to multiply, — to manifest His power.

#Warning  #HowToHeal

SH 69:2–10

The scientific fact that man and the universe are evolved from Spirit,

and so are spiritual,

is as fixed in divine Science

as is the proof that

mortals gain the sense of health ONLY as they lose the sense  of sin and disease.

Mortals can NEVER understand God’s creation while believing

that man is a creator.

God’s children already created

will be cognized ONLY

as man finds the truth of being.

Thus it is that the real, ideal man

appears in proportion

as the false and material disappears

#FreeFromSin

Matthew 9:2

……Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.

#KeyToHealing #Christ #Christmas

SJ 473:7–15

The God-principle is omnipresent and omnipotent.

God is everywhere, and nothing apart from Him is present or has power……

Jesus is the name of the man who,

more than all other men,

has presented Christ,

the true idea of God,

healing the sick and the sinning

and destroying the power of death.

#StormsINlife #Jesus #Peace

Mark 4:35–41

39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind,

and said unto the sea,

Peace, be still.

And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

And he said unto them,

Why are why are ye so fearful?

how is it that ye have no faith?

#HowToAchieveGoals

Isaiah 30:15 thus (to :), 21

thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel;

In returning and rest shall ye be saved;

in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength:

21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying,

This is the way, walk ye in it,

when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

SH 46:7

The divine Spirit, which identified Jesus thus centuries ago,

has spoken through the inspired Word

and will speak through it in every age and clime.

It is revealed to the receptive heart,

and is again seen casting out evil and healing the sick.

#HowToHeal  #Love

SH 496:15

Hold perpetually this thought, —

that it is the spiritual idea, the Holy Ghost and Christ,

which enables you to demonstrate,

with scientific certainty,

the rule of healing,

based upon its divine Principle, Love, underlying,

and encompassing all true being.

This week the Christ idea was so bright in consciousness and how Jesus’s gift to the world could make a difference with simply following the Science of Christianity he came to prove.  His work left a complete blueprint for 2017 and daily work. 

Looking forward to sharing more about #Healing and the power of #Love in 2017.

Merry Christmas to all!

What Is A Miracle?

May 6, 2014

Have you ever thought about what a miracle means to you… the  American Heritage Dictionary shows the definition as: 

  1. An event that appears unexplainable by the laws of nature and so is held to be supernatural in origin or an act of God.  2. A person, thing, or event that excites admiring awe.  3 To wonder at.

Taking the concept of miracles and applying it to every day occurrences shows that things happen all the time that “excites admiring awe.”   Many times we just miss the miracles that surround us. Hopefully this article will encourage you to start thinking about the gifts you are given on a daily basis, be open for the “present.”  Watch and listen for the miracles and they will be there!  The Lessons of Love will warm your heart and create balance in your life.  

Do you think you could find a cell phone in this mountain of white sand after being out all night with the wind blowing? 

rolling dune sun 2

Meet Emelyn Morris Sayre a Professional Real Estate agent in the Denver/Boulder area of Colorado,  a very talented photographer and Caribbean Vacation Rental owner.  Emelyn, found my cell phone in the sand at White Sands National Monument in New Mexico after being out for a night with the sand blowing in the wind.  

Emelyn found the phone

The story starts on facebook and Google+ after seeing , Kristal Kraft, a friend of mine, who is a Real Estate professional in Denver, Colorado with The Berkshire Group, and an incredible photographer, share an amazing photo of a pink sky with a Yucca plant at White Sands, New Mexico.  The photo post was so beautiful  it inspired me to want to go to White Sands, New Mexico, myself and capture that stunning beauty at this natural wonder.  

Kristal Kraft

The facebook story continues as several members of a photography group I belong to decided to go to White Sands and have a meet up over a weekend.  Seizing the moment, I joined in with the group to drive to New Mexico from Arizona for the White Sands photo shoot.  I did not know any of the photogs coming from Colorado but knew we would all connect through the Love of photography.  We exchanged phone numbers, hotel information and were off to White Sands.  

The first evening was an incredible sunset opportunity with electric skies and perfect contrast for the landscape photography shoot in White Sands, New Mexico. 

Whtie sand sunset

The next evening did not have such dramatic skies and the wind was blowing the sand.  I had written Love Berlin in the sand for one of my German friends, a member of Photo Tour Global Directory, Britta Rogge with Show Your Best Work from Berlin.  The wind covered my message over in less than 15 minutes, showing just how fast the sands can move.  

Love Berlin 1

After sunset on the 2nd evening I realized my cell phone was missing, it was getting dark and the park was closing in 15 minutes.  I really did have a little self talk.. I believed that GOD knew where it was…. I just needed to turn my thoughts to accepting that and NOT DOUBT.  I was a little tense as the sun was almost down and darkness was setting in.  Being a little disoriented from the wind blowing and covering up the writing of my sign I could not retrace where I had been.  With the head lamp light on, I stated to walk up the hill to look for the phone where we had been shooting earlier but the rangers were coming and we all needed to exit the park.  Kristal Kraft tried to call the phone to see if it would ring but first she called the home phone by mistake so my husband now knew we were looking for the phone.

 Janet Smith another inspiring photographer I had just met, suggested that I temporarily stop the number instead of turning it off so when we found it all we had to to was turn it back on.  This suggestion was another angel message indicating the phone was going to be found.   Janet is so full of fun an Love  you can see it in this image we had taken earlier and  shines through on her website His Healing Images.  I can’t express in words the feeling of gratitude I have for connecting with these amazing photographers so full of Love and so willing to share and help with positive thoughts. 

Janet Smith jumping

The mental process began with being thankful that I had just backed up the iphone and I thought I had insurance so the worst case was getting the new phone and then uploading all the data off the computer back up.  It was still a bit uncomfortable in my consciousness so again I was thinking about being grateful that I had the phone locked so if someone found it they could not open it. Gratitude for all the positive protection that was already in place but also for knowing that Divine Love would again, provide for every human need.     Our family has rejoiced many different times when finding things of value seemingly, lost, by holding to the principle of a right idea cannot be separated from you.   The phone was just waiting to be found.  I eventually calmed down my thought and KNEW that tomorrow morning after the sunrise shoot I would go to the visitor center, give them a description of the phone and KNOW that someone would find it and turn it in.  One of the other photographers, Kristal Kraft, had lost her expensive prescription sunglasses and I applied this same law of right ideas to that situation in my thoughts as well.  It is a mental warfare we all have when the Cosmic Cow Pies™ fly in our lives. We have a choice how we handle or “cope” with the situation.  I chose to believe that I would be directed to look or say or do the right thing to restore what was mine.

The group of about 10 photographers all had dinner and I was talking with the only man in the group, John Kyler DigitalColorado.com and a member of Photo Tour Global Directory  with his daughter Heidi  on this White Sands photo shoot.  When he heard about the phone loss he was simply POWERFUL in his thought and conviction that we would find the phone after the sunrise shoot!  His reassurance was so inspiring that it took all the fear that I was trying to put down away and I KNEW that was an angel message for me to affirm what I knew to be true, that God had this situation and I didn’t need to do anything but believe in his omnipotence.  

John Kyler DigitalColorado

The photo above is one of John Kylers unique images taking the White Sands sunrise shot and adding his creativity to produce a work of art that inspires the viewer to think at a higher level.  When I asked John if it would be possible to include him and the part he played in the experience with his absolute conviction we would find the phone, he heartily agreed and shared this with me about his philosophy in his work and life….I love the story.. It just goes to show that positive energy is contagious and inspiring. With my photography, that is one of my hopes if nothing else is to inspire others to live life, enjoy, take better pictures, or get out, but have fun…”  

What a joy to get the sunrise shot I had set out to capture at the White Sands National Monument. We were  just were about to pack up the car and go to the visitor center when Emelyn Morris Sayre came over to me and said… “what does your phone look like?”  She held up my phone and I gave glory to God for doing all the work and what I had to do was believe and KNOW he would do his job.  Kristal Kraft, who had lost her glasses found them at the visitor center lost and found.    Miracles happen every day, expect that your needs will be met and Divine Love will take you all the way.

Here comes the sun 2

The story continues with another need being met by the same Love messenger that found my phone!  I got home from the photo shoot at White Sands and needed to get a red Corvette sold before we were going on a 2 month adventure.  We had listed the car in the winter on Craigslist but the timing had not worked out.  It was now Spring and I reposted the ad and shared the photos on facebook. My new friend, Emelyn, who found the phone at White Sands, said she loved the car and photos on facebook and maybe she would come and look at it.  In less than 5 days Emelyn and her husband flew to Flagstaff, Arizona from Colorado, had the car checked, took a tour of the Grand Canyon and Williams, Arizona getting back to work in 3 days with “Roise” her new red Corvette, all taken care of.  The miracles just continued for all of us as they were thrilled with their purchase and we were blessed to be able to leave knowing we had the car sold. Divine Love meets all our needs!   The Lessons in Love continued in seeing what blesses one blesses all.  

SOLD Red Corvette

Emelyn has a sock monkey who shares life’s lessons named Pricilla and  I have peace monkey who travels with me from the Cosmic Cow Pie™ series. The monkey’s connected at the Grand Canyon where we met other photogs from Canada who have traveling companions so we all ended up sharing global love through photography fun.  Canadian friends CC and Peace monkey at GC

Now the journey and fun connection continues with Emelyn and her husband joining us on a voyage around the North and Baltic Sea capturing Love and learning lessons from Hamburg up around Northern Europe in Finland, Scotland, Sweden to Iceland  and back to Ireland.  Who knew.. that from a facebook group comment to a White Sands New Mexico photo meet-up, to Williams, Arizona on Route 66 and Grand Canyon experience we would find ourselves going half way around the globe together with a wonderful new friendship!  It’s another miracle! 

Em shooting Williams

Miracles happen every single day.  Miracles might not be a term you relate to but whatever the word is you want to use for Divine Love answering prayer and meeting human needs it’s ok. The Lessons of Love are there when we listen and are prepared to accept the gift.

Start looking and expecting the good that is ready and waiting for you!  Feel the LOVE and enjoy the miracles each and everyday!  

What is Good Friday All About?

April 19, 2014

Today is Good Friday…. the day Jesus was crucified and Easter Sunday is the day he ascended through the resurrection.   

Cross-3

Read the story in the Bible at Matthew chapter 26 – 28 or Luke 22-24 for the full story.  

Jesus came to show us the way… not to do it for us… he taught only LOVE. The message he shared is timeless and the parables apply to everything we do and experience today IF we are willing to let thought go higher to the spiritual meaning of the actions in his time and of what is going on today.  

Sharing the Easter story in easy to understand terms…

Jesus was crucified for doing good and not “playing the game.”  Games continue today in many aspects of our lives and his resurrection was to show us the way to overcoming evil with good always and rising higher in our thought of what Life really is about.   

He was betrayed by one of his own followers for money.. we see that today people selling out for money.. no difference then or now. 

Pontius Pilate the governor and representative of Caesar “crowed sourced” what do do with Jesus by asking: Matthew 27:22 & 23 “What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified. 23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.” 

It seems the public is always wanting to crucify someone for their beliefs… 

For the next 3 days.. think about what this story means to mankind and how you fit in the picture.  

What is your role in history?  

What is your purpose and reason for being? 

Jesus knew he had a purpose on earth and as he was being crucified with the other malefactos he said Luke 23:34 “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.”  

How can we take that lesson today with forgiveness and Love?  

Take a few moments to read the story in Matthew or in Luke to understand the persecution of good and what your place is in the resurrection of thought.  

Easter Sunday signifies a new reality of what life really is…..Spiritual not material and Jesus proved it.  Think about the words you hear at any funeral, they reference the resurrection and the fact that Love Lives On! Jesus proved it for all mankind to have hope and understanding of this reality.  The crucifixion and resurrection uplift faith to understanding of eternal Life.  

He is risen

Rejoice with those around you this weekend and celebrate the unconditional Love, God has for you.  You are so loved and you need to feel and KNOW that no matter what the past has been.  There is only the NOW and going forward with new understanding and light.  The resurrection shows us the way to only good and life eternal.

The first step toward WORLD peace is  knowing there is ONE God who surrounds and protects us all WHEN we listen and follow doing only good.  Overcoming evil with good under all circumstances.  Then… we have to LOVE our neighbor as ourselves.  This means you have to LOVE yourself first so you can share that Spirit and BE the reflection of the LOVE that created you! 

Every day can be an Easter filled with benedictions new!  

Have a beautiful weekend and start each day new with the LOVE of Christ in your heart.

Christmas Can Be Everyday!

December 25, 2013

Christmas is something that can be celebrated everyday! 

Pinecone candles.jpg dn

Think about what Christmas means to you…..

  • Is it connecting with others you have neglected all year.
  • Is it helping someone in need?
  • Is it sharing the love of the birth of Christ?
  • Is it a meal with family and friends?
  • Is it taking time to understand creation and how you fit in?
  • Is it ponding the meaning of life and what Jesus came to show mankind?
  • Is it thinking about Mary and how she felt when Gabriel came to chat with her?
  • How do you think Joseph processed Mary being with child?
  • Do you hear angles?
  • How are you different after December 25th each year?
  • Do you think you can take the spirit of Christmas with you every day?

Think about what Christmas really means to you and then try to share that concept in everything you do every single day! 

B&W Mary and Jesus

Peace, joy, respect, understanding, kindness, tolerance, love  what else can you add to the qualities you can express on a daily basis that can make a difference in the world!

Peace on earth, good will to men……. do we have a part in this idea?

Join us in asking 3 questions a day in 2014 the year of balance. 

  1. Who was I nice to today?
  2. What did I learn today?
  3. How was I better today than yesterday? 

When we stop learning we stop growing.  When we stop giving we stop living.  When we stop trying to be better what is the purpose existence?

Loving our neighbor as ourselves gives us a bar to work towards.  We have to love our selves first in order to love our neighbor.  Try writing down what you love about yourself.  Don’t be shy and think about everything…. you brush your teeth.  You keep your room clean, you open the doors for others, you wait to speak until someone else is done… all kinds of ways to love our selves.  Then think about the good things to love in your neighbor.  You will be surprised how your life will change when you are looking for things to love about someone instead of looking at things to judge or criticize about them.

Everyday can be a Christmas filled with Love and Kindness too!

Christmas bow

The present is a gift, make the most of it!
