Atlanta Minister reflects on the passing of his “mom” – Louise Hay

By | Affirmation, Current Events, Eulogy, Louise Hay, Love, New Thought, Religious Science, Science of Mind, Spirituality, Ty Andrews | No Comments

I was asked to write something for the media regarding the passing of my dear mentor Louise Hay. Their headline made me tear up because in all honesty she was an incredible mother figure to me. She helped birth within me a new paradigm of spiritual understanding and decades later officiated and gave me away in marriage to my husband Ty Andrews.  Below is my attempt to encapsulate the boundless nature of an icon. There are countless stories to match the countless works of good she personally shared with me and publicly with the world. I’m positive that as time…

You Were Made For This

By | Affirmation, Blog, Conscious Remembering, Current Events, Faith | No Comments

This profound writing by Clarissa Pinkola Estes continues to surface at pivotal times to remind us why we are here. Take to heart that our first task towards transcendent living is remembering the value and worth of those immediately around us.    You Were Made for This. My friends, do not lose heart. We were made for these times. I have heard from so many recently who are deeply and properly bewildered. They are concerned about the state of affairs in our world now. Ours is a time of almost daily astonishment and often righteous rage over the latest degradations…

As nature illustrates, there are countless varieties of trees. They are all distinct, indigenous, adaptable and wide-ranging but they are all a part of the one collective known as tree, each with root systems and a single stem or trunk. Trees do not judge other trees. As anatomy and physiology illustrate, there are innumerable varieties of people. We are distinct, culturally indigenous, adaptable and wide-ranging but we are all a part of the one collective known as people, each with compatible internal organs such as lungs that breathe in the same rhythmic pattern of inhale and exhale. Yet, people judge…

Lasting Equality

By | Blog, Current Events, Marriage Equality | No Comments

I’m sure you’ve heard the statement, “We are not born hating one another.”  We learn to hate and cultivate our prejudices based on domestication within the familial and cultural structures we were born into. Like sponges, we absorb the opinions and teachings of our parents, guardians, our country and religion of origin.  We are domesticated to believe that something different than what we are initially born into is wrong and is to be feared, even fought against. We are taught, “one must compete for what one wants because there is not enough to go around.” This belief is then nurtured…

Trayvon Martin

By | Current Events | 2 Comments

This is the EXACT moment to go within and ask yourself what you truly believe.    More times than not our physical description of justice does not come from the votes of a mortal jury, however, justice/order is always activated spiritually.  It would be of tremendous value for all of us to dedicate ourselves to understanding how the Universe is inherently a just, loving all-encompassing energy of life. So yes, be angry but be consciously angry. Take that energy and begin using it to educate.  Vow to heal racial barriers, particularly in your own heart and start promoting inclusion rather…

Sandy Hook Elementary School

By | Current Events | One Comment

There is no ‘their children’ – it is our children. There is no ‘their mental illness’ – it is our mental illness. This is not isolated – this is another effect from a long standing cause. Separation of any kind is the ogre we all continue to feed, whether it is Christians thinking they are righteously superior over the Muslims or the Muslims over the Christians. It is Israel and Palestine, gay and straight, black and white, even men and women. It is you against me and me against you. It ALL is separation proudly broadcasting its ignorance through our…
