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!

Celebrate Being An American as we rebuild after hurricane Sandy and the election!  

In the famous words of JFK  “….ask not what your country can do for you: ask what you can do for your country” 

We all have an important part to play and we have to decide what it is we can do to help with rebuilding our economy and the disaster after hurricane Sandy. What can we do to  “Give America A Hand”?

Deejay Johnson, one of my grade school girlfriends from Broomfiled, Colorado has written this song of inspiration,“Give America A Hand” to celebrate being an American after being on a plane on 9-11.  Can you image what must have been going through the thoughts of thousands of people in the air on the infamous day of attack on our country!  Deejay Johnson has taken that emotion and recorded a moving song and video about what makes America great!  She wrote the song and created the video with photos from real friends celebrating being an American. You will see the housing market and rebuilding in the photos.  Please watch the video and feel the love! It makes you want to celebrate being an American!

Last week we experienced one of the most devastating storms in recent history, hurricane Sandy. People are coming together to help each other as neighbors should and this cooperative rebuilding could be setting the tone of our future!

Photographer Simos Xenakis is a friend of mine from Brooklyn, New York.  We met on Google+ and his work is amazing.  He had some incredible captures on the day after hurricane Sandy hit and the work that is ahead to rebuild is almost overwhelming.  The link to his work will have you reflecting on the rebuilding.

ar135208834435915 Celebrate, Celebrate......

Another storm will be over on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 after the election.  The election rage and anger that has been brewing like hurricane Sandy will finally come to an end.  We have to face the facts that there will be a winner and a loser from the election but we can all be WINNERS by embracing the victor and putting our full support as AMERICANS behind the elected candidate.

Neighborhoods on the east coast and community services are all going to have to work together to rebuild the natural disaster we have just experienced.  The same principles are going to be needed to reconstruct our nation.

  • Compassion
  • Kindness
  • Forgiveness
  • Consideration
  • Patience 
  • Ingenuity  

All qualities that will need to be incorporated in our daily lives to rise above the horrific mess we are in financially. 

Lets, take all the fear out of the politics that are out there.  Think about who directs and controls your life right now. Trust and know that you will still be directed and controlled by the same Principle that has been in effect since the beginning of time.  This is a personal decision and you control your thoughts on this one!  Take responsibility for your own thought, you are in control of your own fear.  

The candidate who gets elected on November 6, 2012 needs our support and positive thoughts.  Each candidate talks about “crossing the lines” to help the American public, let’s support them in doing it.  This should not be campaign rhetoric, both sides need to walk the walk, AFTER THE STORM!  

You and I are the difference in America.  Let’s “Give America A Hand” like he song says!  It is NOT the Republicans or the Democrats.  It is US and the way we behave.  The way we reach out, the way we help others, the way we treat the environment, the way we love one another.  The same way we have to come together “after the storm” with Sandy.  American Red Cross and Salvation Army donations are needed NOW! 

Celebrate Being An American and embrace the newly elected representatives, help rebuilding of the east coast and our country with your positive actions!  

Let’s live: One Nation, Under God, Indivisible with Justice and Liberty for all!

Let’s celebrate being an American together and dace to the music!

What did these men think about in their man cave?

  1. Gandhi
  2. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
  3. Martin Mandela
  4. Jesus
  5. Albert Einstein

A funny friend on google+ said “well if it was lunch time they would be thinking about what they wanted to eat!”  That is so true.. except Gandhi at certain times in his life… but thinking seriously about these men living their dreams, they were most likely all directed in everything they did to reach the end goal involving peace with purpose.

Kit Cummings, author and international speaker will be sharing his most recent passion   “The Power of Peace Project.”  and  his thoughts on the 5 men of Power who changed our world.   Meet Kit on our blogtalkradio show, International Peace Day morning at 9:00 a.m. PDT  Listen on line or call in to (347) 994-1903 to join our peace talks!   He will be sharing his recent visit to South Africa and the peace movement going on there.

“40 Days of Peace” began on the 25th anniversary of MLK Day and would continue for the following forty days. These twelve men chronicled their success, struggles and failures; bold men, some of whom are former gang members serving life sentences. What happened next is that they unknowingly started a Peace Movement that would continue to spread to many other state prisons. The “Seven Peace Doctrines” that they committed to and the transformation that followed is the subject of Kit Cummings’ new work and next book. Dr. King’s Dream lives on, and light shines brightest in the darkness…”

Who Needs “The Help?” Movie Review

October 2, 2011

The Help: Lessons to learn from.

 “Courage is not just about being brave it is about overcoming fear and daring to do what is right for your fellow man.” There were many lines in this film which are going to be quotable but this one stands out as epic to me.

The previews of “The Help” were spot on with delivering a message that is 5 stars and inspires the viewer to stand up for doing the right thing.

Wednesday, August 10th, DreamWorks Studios released the 2hour and 17 minute Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture directed and written by Tate Taylor entitled “The Help.”  This is a story based on the #1 New York Times Best Seller by Kathryn Stockett.  The heartwarming message depicts the travesty of social injustice in America during the 1960’s in the authors home town of Jacksonville, Mississippi.  The film will touch most viewers in numerous ways with it’s poignant characters who represent a cross section of personal situations alive and well in today’s world.  The powerful storyline is a portrait of a fragmenting world including romance, parental neglect, society position, unjust beating resulting in death, racial prejudice, ignorance, theft, Alzheimer’s, survival, domestic abuse and cancer.

Humor and honest depiction of human nature are the award winning elements running through this film.“Hate and fear are two horns on the same goat.”  another memorable quote from the movie which is destined to be an academy award winning work.

The power of Love overcomes fear in many instances throughout the story line.

Everyone can appreciate the tender message Aibileen, the black maid instilled in all the white children she cared for. She knew she could make them feel good about themselves even when their own mothers did not have the time of day for them or their feelings.  She would ask them:

1.  Is you kind

2.  Is you smart

3.  Is you important

Ciccly Tyson plays Skeeter’s beloved nanny who she loves lke a mother.  She teaches Skeeter to quit feeling sorry for her self… She says “that is what is ugly.” She continues “Everyday when you wake up in the morning ask, Am I going to believe all the bad things fools are going to say about me today?”

Emma Stone (Skeeter), Viola, Davis (Aibileen), and Octavia Spencer (Minny) form an improbable alliance where a relationship evolves which gives them the courage to rise above the lot in life they are living to create change. The help in the 1960’s in Jackson, Mississippi did not have many rights, had to eat and drink from separate dinnerware, ride separate buses and eat separately.  The entire audience cringes as segregationist housewife, Bryce Dallas Howard (Hilly) describes the “Home Health Sanitation Initiative” requiring each white home to have a separate bathroom for the help.

The historic depiction of the shooting of Medgar Evers, the civil rights activist who was gunned down in Jackson, Mississippi on June 12, 1963 in front of his home, the shooting of John F. Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s speech make the viewer feel like they are right in the middle of the conflicts.  The journey from fear of society norms to courage in sharing the  story of “The Help” is a movie for all ages.

“The Help” celebrates with grace and humility the courage it takes to inspire change.

Dig deep in your thought after watching this film and think about you and your courage.  Do you have the courage to do what is right for your fellow man? Is part of the message of an epic film to encourage behavior modification?

Social Media Ship…. Are You On Board? Part 1 or 3

October 2, 2011

The Ship Has Not Sailed! Get On Board!

Part 1 of 3 part series.

Social media is here to stay and can help you save money communicating with thousands…… but at what expense?

The answer is: your most limited commodity TIME, so is it worth it to you?

Ask youself several questions before you make a quick decision.

  1. Where are people looking for ANY type of help? Is google their BFF? (Best Friend Forever)
  2. When someone has a question about ANYTHING how do they find the answer?
  3. When YOU have a question about anything where do you go?
  4. If you are driving around and see a sign on a house for sale what do you do to find out the price? What do your customers do?
  5. Do you point your phone at the house and go to the Zillow or Truilia app on your phone or iPad?
  6. Do you read the QR code? Only you have the answer to this question.
  7. When you are watching the news do they tell you to go to their facebook page to talk about a community issue?
  8. Do you see ads where twitter is featured?
  9. Do you have a .mobi site?
  10. Have you seen commercials where they direct you to youtube to see the rest of the story

Watch the youtube video below and think about how it makes you feel? The first commercial actually starts on television with a beautiful Persian cat and a Tiffany heart on the cats collar asking Lisa to marry the Shawn and the cat. The end of the television commercial says “see the rest of the story on youtube at Fancy Feast.” Below is part of an on going series of commercials.

Connect to the Fancy Feast youtube channel and watch the “wedding planner to the stars” Colin Cowie describe how they are going to engage viewers with selecting Lisa’s dress, jewelry and her bouquet. Colin invites the viewer back to keep the story going. Think about how Purina is engaging cat lovers and helping them become “raving” fans by having them participate in the next commercial and it’s outcome.

Check out the screen shot from the youtube Fancy Feast site. In the center you see a box on the right that says…watch with your friends start a Google+ hang out. Part 3 of this series will cover more on Google+. Look at the number of views 3,040,045 and look at 1,203 subscribers to watch Purina Fancy Feast youtube videos. There have been 308 comments that have been positive. What is Purina paying for a youtube channel? The same as you and me -0- right now!

How does this apply to marketing any product or service? 

Video is where the consumer wants to be. The last few movies I have seen at the theater are giving websites for more information on the ads I now have to watch on the big screen while waiting for the new movie trailers. Just saw a 15 second “Go Daddy” commercial on Monday night football with Danica Patrick and the end line was” see the rest of the story on godaddy.com.” Upon navigating to GoDaddy.com I found Danica and a QR code saying “Use a QR reader on your mobile device to reveal your savings.” QR codes and their importance will be part 2 of the “Ship Has Not Sailed” series.

Creating a blog with video is a direction you need to be working toward to share your product or service message.

Think about how you could start a story about weekly deals in your community and have your viewers subscribe because they will want to see the deal of the week or your personal featured listing. Mix it up so they want to get your weekly video or blog post with the video. It does not matter if it your listing or not it just has to have value to the consumer: Price, terms, condition or location. Of course you will need to get permission in writing from the listing agent and seller to video the house and post on youtube.

Think about how consumers would enjoy watching your videos and sharing with their friends. Make it fun! The possiblities are endless!

State Farm is reaching the younger Generation with video on their youtube channel too! Start watching commercials instead of fast forwarding. See how others are paving the way for you to be a participant in social media and be where Big Business is driving the consumer.

Big business is educating the consumer to look to social media for more information. You can be there with little cost except your time and content ideas.

If you are not present and accounted for in social media, you might drown…. so get on that ship before it gets out too far!

You do not have to reinvent the wheel. it might seem like you are spinning in the Cosmic Cow Pie right now with all the avenues open for you to get in the game. Take deep breaths and more important, some specific time to connect the dots.

  • Take some time to plan what is most important in your market area.
  • Ask, what does the consumer want then fill that niche.
  • Create a specific strategy that will work for you and your target market.
  • Brainstorm with a mastermind group so you can bo on top of your social media game and incorporate your ideas in a fun way to get the consumer to be sharing your blog posts with their friends.
  • Research the activerain site for all the tools you will need to succeed.
  • Consider some outside help to create your game plan. (I work on an hourly or one time basis to get started or a custom plan)

Success is about taking the time to make your plan and then work it. Many of the tools you need to work your plan are available for FREE on the Internet and right here at activerain. You might need to invest in some software to make your project work but it is nothing like the money you are going to lose in sales by not being part of this Cosmic Shift™ and having your plan in place to meet the people where they are and know what they are experiencing in cyberspace.

Social media is still in it’s infancy. Social media is changing the world forever! Its power is not yet fully understood. What is crystal clear is the fact we will not be going back to last century marketing or politics or business as usual. Invest your time to learn the new methods of marketing and meet your customers where they are giving them valuable content that makes sense, entertains them and meets their needs.
