This Is Why?

By | Conception, Inception, Intentional Living, New Thought, Spirituality, Success | No Comments

So THIS is why I can never keep my New Year’s resolution? You begin every new year with the desire for a clean slate, a new beginning, a time that you can set our goals and intentions and FINALLY make the changes you want to see in your life.  You truly want to usher in some new habits and kick those nagging bad habits to the curb. But by February, many of your resolutions are already abandoned or forgotten.  So why do we struggle so much to follow through with the resolutions we set for ourselves? There is one singular thing that everyone on…

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…

Rusted Development

By | Bold Living, Conscious Remembering, David Ault, Faith, Inner Vision, Intentional Living, Joseph Campbell, New Thought, Spirituality | No Comments

Once, when living in Los Angeles, I came across a circular metal patio table that someone left curbside in my neighborhood. It was the perfect fit for my postage stamp sized backyard area. I brought it home, spruced it up with spray paint, and marveled at my new find and estimated cost savings. The only problem was that I had not thoroughly examined the table’s condition. There were huge circular rust patches underneath its top. No amount of painting over it would remedy its corrosion. The paint would repeatedly peel off. It needed a good deal of sanding and repair…

Preaching To The Choir – A Good Thing

By | Awareness, Conscious Remembering, David Ault, New Thought, Spirituality | No Comments

I’m sure you are familiar with the term ‘preaching to the choir’. It roughly translates that we waste our time in trying to make believers out of believers. Derivatives of the phrase can be traced back to the late 1800’s where the phrase ‘preaching to the converted’ was written by a theologian as a chastisement to a missionary for not going where true conversion was needed. If you are familiar with my messages, you know I like to challenge the either/or labeling we place on worldviews and public narrative. From the choir perspective; does not the depth of our believing…

It’s Always Something

By | Affirmation, Bold Living, Conscious Remembering, David Ault, Divine Order, Gilda Radner, Intentional Living, New Thought, Reclaiming Freedom, Spirituality | No Comments

Beloved comedienne Gilda Radner frequently joked, “It’s always something.” So many see and relate to our everyday human existence with perpetual overwhelm. Life seems packed with situations we feel must be overcome. Our existence can be lived in a vibration of low or high panic, invading everyone’s days regardless of socioeconomic status. This is especially evident when we bemoan life solely as an obstacle course of unending challenge. Without a mental reframe about this thing called Life, our narrative devolves into futility and a belief in struggle as the norm. Gilda was right. It is always something, yet that something…

Behavioral Compliance

By | Affirmation, Awareness, Conscious Remembering, David Ault, David Ault Quote, Intentional Living, New Thought, Spirituality | No Comments

Abraham Lincoln wrote, “I care not for one’s religion whose dog or cat are not the better for it.” What good ole Abe infers is more than kindness to one’s pets, it is about behavioral hypocrisy. One’s actions are the telltale indicators of one’s internal loyalties. I may be able to quote chapter and verse from any holy book on honor and morality, post passages from inspirational resources and profess to be a ____________ (fill in religious affiliation), and all of it means nothing if I am generally unkind or march in formation with the mass conscious witch-hunts of an…

Pin The Tail On The Donkey

By | Awareness, Divine Order, Intentional Living, New Thought | No Comments

Remember this game – Pin the tail on the donkey? This childhood birthday activity required us to be spun around, blindfolded, leaving us to dizzily make an attempt to pin a paper tail on the proper location of the donkey poster while navigating through darkness. The one who came closest to pinning it in the proper anatomical location won. At times it seems we can’t help ourselves. We still play it. Our physical nature continues pinning blame on something or someone on a ‘donkey’ of worldly effect. We have been blindly spun and tossed by winds of irrational opinion, raised…

Life Is Always Fair

By | Conscious Remembering, New Thought, Spirituality | No Comments

People do not seem to realize that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.  ~  Ralph Waldo Emerson Our relationship with our world is the overriding template for our relationship with everything. A bold statement, yes, but when you earnestly combine the infallible workings of spiritual law to the way each of us operates in life, then you can see the truth in Emerson’s words. The most powerful thing any of us can ever remember and then apply is the fact that it is never about anything or anyone ‘out there.’ Our experience, attitude and circumstance is not created from what anyone did…

It’s Already Created

By | Creation, Imagination, Inner Vision, Neville Goddard, New Thought | One Comment

  Spiritual teacher Neville Goddard wrote that creation is finished – its original is within us. Identically Ernest Holmes taught that we create nothing. Everything is already created. How then do you describe our part? Through desire, we select and initiate that which already exists. We bring infinite substance into individualized form. Through our imagination, we collaborate with our personal desire by developing an already-having-received attitude. Sometimes the simplicity and power of this spiritual practice gets swept under a rug of forgetfulness and we fall back into the notion that we are bound by linear time and limited availability.You want that promotion?  Stop…

Only One

By | New Thought, Politics, Consciousness, Solution, Love, Inner Guidance, Greek Chorus, Spirituality, Written | No Comments

There can only be one. There is never two. What you do to another, say of another or think of another, you do and say of yourself. No amount of justification will ever change this. No amount of structures built, rhetoric spoken, or battles waged will ever eliminate the connection of one to another. There is no such thing as ‘us’ and ‘them’ – there are simply those who have re-awakened, those who are stirring from sleep and those still under the anesthesia of illusion.

Feeding Time

By | New Thought, Spirituality, Thomas Troward | No Comments

Everyday the Divine dips Its spoon into a big bowl of perfect and declares it’s feeding time. So the question becomes, is our mouth open or closed? Are our hearts focused on receiving or resisting? In a moment of my own fear and resistance this week, my practitioner led me to this paragraph written by Thomas Troward If the end is already secured, then it follows that all the steps leading to it are secured also.  The means will pass into the smaller circle of our conscious activities day by day in due order, and then we have to work upon them, not with fear, doubt or…
