A message for the season:

We await with anticipation in faith, peace, love and joy

Let us embrace with the wide-eyed wonderment of a child at Christmas the gifts of our spiritual nature: faith, peace, love and joy.

If you attended a Christian church, then you are most probably familiar with season of Advent, the four weeks leading up to Christmas. Metaphysically, the advent practice is a time for increasing our intention, attention and capacity to experience the sacred season and Divine Presence within us. Each week we raise our thought vibration and focus on one of the gifts (attributes) of our Divinity.

My practice is to light a 7 day candle each week where it shines brightly in my home, raising awareness and beckoning me to be one with the One Creative Force. Each night I will sit in silent contemplation and meditation.

As we embrace this spiritual season of light, let us unfold with expanding consciousness each day, as we are led by the all-knowing spiritual self, to see the truth of who we are, the Divine Presence of the Living Christ, which was made manifest in man, by Jesus (and other masters).

Together let us bring our gifts to the world. Let us pray and affirm:
  • With FAITH I know my infinite potential.
  • With Divine Presence, I am (at) PEACE
  • God, by any name, is LOVE. I open my heart and fully love.
  • With the JOY of a child, I celebrate all that IAM, and all that I am meant to be!
  • With DIVINE POWER, I live an abundant life of faith, peace, love and Joy!

I look forward to connecting with you in Divine Oneness.

Merry Christmas dear ones!

"Our Genuine Gift"
MaryannDuring this busy season of gift giving, let us come together as One Mind and One Heart to share our gift of awakened consciousness with each other and all of humanity! We are the individualized external expressions of God.

Our essential nature is Divine and therefore we are inherently good! Our purpose is to express our divine nature with one another...it is the eternal expanding gift that keeps on giving! As awakened spiritual beings we are not sleep walking through life...we have awakened from our dream of separation and we are alive with the desire to share our gift of love with the world!

"Spirit is seeking through us its own self expression. To be in harmony with Its purposes is to assure the success of our own."
---- Fenwicke Holmes

"The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control."
---- Galatians 5:22-23

"God is not a person who has set creation in motion and gone away to let it run down like a clock. God is Spirit, infinite mind and imminent force and intelligence everywhere manifest in nature. God is the silent voice that speaks into visibility all the life there is."
---- Charles Fillmore
