Easter Blessing

Here is a simple but pertinent #Easter_blessing or #PRAYER for today’s meal or festivities:

As we gather here to celebrate a day that signifies the risen Spirit of the Christ, we find ourselves immensely blessed.

Let’s take a moment now for each of us to share something we may feel blessed about. (At this time, everyone goes around the table and shares one or two words signifying their special thoughts about their own personal blessings.)

We gather these blessing and let them rise to the heavens as the great Spirit of Jesus the Christ did 2000 years ago. We know that these prayers and the prayers of those whom we love will also combine with the one unifying presence of love and wisdom that surely blesses the world with abundance, health, truth, and love.

In this same prayer we turn toward the light and away from all that may tempt us that is not of a positive nature. We focus our minds on the good that we share and is all around us always. 

The Light of God Surrounds us;

The Love of God enfolds us;

The Power of God protects us:

Where we go, God is and all is well. (Unity’s “prayer of protection”)

Thank you, God

Amen or Namate.

You can’t build a relationship with God unless you spend time with and in the presence of the Great Spirit. There are many blogs in my 8 years of writing that teach about meditation. Also, you can look at the end of this blog and find a meditation that you can use to help you understand the mechanics of meditation for yourself. Please do me a favor and sign up for my youtube channel. I am really trying to build my social presence on youtube, so that I can begin to reach more people. Thank you.

Again, meditation is a step in spiritual development we must be on to get stronger spiritual and identify our paths on this Earth. Our entire purpose for being on this Earth is to get stronger and stronger in Love and Compassion. When we make choices that benefit the ego self, we often go in the wrong direction in life; this would include choices that are based in fear.

Fear is not love. Anything in your life that presents itself as fear is an illusion trying to keep your from a God Choice or a Miracle!

Creationism, Science, and Extraterrestrials—Part IV—My Story Continued…

I spent more time thinking about God, who I was in the world, and why was I on the earth. #Religion (#Creationism), #Science, and #Extraterrestrials continued to be an intrigue even as a young teenager (11-14).

When I consider the questions I asked at such a young age with no provocation, I realize now that I was a wonderer of sorts on the Earth. I knew there was a purpose for me, and I would continue to search for that purpose until I found it.

I noticed that church became an even more important part of my path. I studied more, went to catechism at the Catholic Church, St. Philomena, and considered what other religions believed. I was so anxious to understand that I let a woman almost lead me into going to her local Jehovah’s Witness meeting.

I met a woman at the bank, where my sister would take me to add my paperboy money to my savings account. My eldest sister would wait in the car while I stood in line to make my deposit. This made way for many elders to ask me questions about why I was there alone.

One particular woman took the opportunity to introduce me to the same religion that would periodically knock at our door and give us magazines about the “Good News.” Of course, I was intrigued. But, when I shared with a few of my elderly friends what I was looking into—Jehovah’s Witness. they shut me down immediately.

Unless you were a Jehovah’s Witness, in Beaver Falls, Pa., you frowned upon the religion that wouldn’t allow your children to stand during the “Pledge of Allegiance” in school. I could see that adults didn’t like this religion, but that only made me intrigued enough to read the information she gave me and look up the religion in the one place in our house that I could get an unbiased opinion of anything—the encyclopedia. These precious books, my father purchased when my siblings and I were all very young. Often my father would just point to the back bedroom when we had a question he didn’t want to answer. “That’s why I spent $150 on the damn things. Use them!” he would say. I spent hours looking through the encyclopedias, page by page, trying to unlock the mysteries of the universe and the world.

Meanwhile, there was always something strange going on around the house. My sisters were finding steady boyfriends, a fiancé for the eldest and kissing and making out for the others. My brother continued to find more ways to get in trouble with the police with drugs and alcohol. One day my brother had taken (or was given) some kind of drug that put him in the emergency room. My mother and father actually were told he was going to die if they didn’t find out what he had taken. The police found my brother’s friends and pressed them until some “friend” told the police he was given a dog tranquilizer. He finally was given an antidote and was save.

I simply knew that what my brother was becoming, I wanted no part of being. My father detested his behavior, though continued to bail him out of jail and trouble, since my father was very connected with the police department.

Italians in those days (The Sons of Italy) seemed to have leverage in every area of the government and law. That part of my father’s life continues to be a big mystery to me, even today. I can assume my father was active in groups that had some kind of power over the government, but I’m not sure how involved my father had become in any mafia behavior.

Being Italian and being Catholic went hand in hand. That much I knew. Those that were mean and detestable in my eyes made their way with heavy make-up and furs to mass every Sunday and sat in the front row. They would cry at the feet of Jesus. I guess that made everything they did okay—to them. I wasn’t convinced God had winked an eye or removed them from any kind of Karma (even though I didn’t know the meaning of that word then).

What all of this meant to me, even then, was that something was very wrong with Catholicism. I loved Jesus and God, that much I knew, but I didn’t accept the people and the teaching that surrounded me. I needed and wanted to more!

Are Spiritual People Acutely Sensitive?

Bo’s Vegan Book for a New World

My entire life people have accused me of being too sensitive. However, my sensitivity was not just to other’s tone of voice or words; I was even more sensitive to smells, sounds, touch, and light. As I grew older, I realized that the more spiritual people I encountered, the more I detected that they, too, were as sensitive as I was to all of the above.

My acute sensitivity grew as I became older. In fact, I didn’t consciously realize that I my body registered some smells as biologically poisonous, until I began to get migraine headaches from perfume and cigarette smoke.

I became terribly debilitated for a period of 4 years until I found a medication that could counter the pain from the headaches. I did a great deal of research in those years when I wasn’t lying in a dark room wrapped in ice from head to toe. I realized that there was a particular infirmity that people were calling “Sensory Defensiveness. There were ways I could help myself if I did some of the exercises in a book called “Too Bright, Too Loud….”

Since then, I have gone from calling myself sick to realizing that my sensory acuteness is actually a gift. I must protect myself from aromas that are not organic and healthy for my body and mind. When I’m in a negative place or around negative situations and people in life, my body is always signaling me to move away from the danger and protect myself. This is a good thing and not necessarily something that will deter you from life.

I have not had a migraine in a long time, but have had the beginnings of one when I have allowed myself to be in a place or situation too long that could harm me. I must listen to my inner desire to protect myself, as you must also do the same, if you are mirroring my condition in anyway.

Spiritually sensitive people are prone to take on the energy around them. We must empower ourselves with meditation, prayer, yoga, and the like to counter the negativity, plus, not subject ourselves to immerse in it or absorb it. Being a sponge for negative energy is not our calling here on Earth. We are called to help change the course of the Earth’s trajectory to being a path toward light, not negativity and evil people.

I know that as spiritual people we have all gotten away from stereotypical religion and have found solid foundations in teaching that don’t judge but help move us closer to the light. We have found solace in peace. Personally, I use yoga and meditation to keep my peace following me throughout the day. The key to continuing in the positive is to keep in mind positive statements that remind yourself who you are and what you are here to do when negativity tries to infiltrate your mind.

For instance, I’m in the car driving to a destination. I get stuck in traffic that moves at a rate of 4 miles per hour and comes to a complete stop when my appointment is in 15 minutes. My mind begins to get anxious. Am I going to make it to my destination on time? Then, the worry becomes linked to other situations that “could” happen if I’m late. Perhaps, I am reminded of other times when situational things such as traffic have made me lose an important opportunity.

The truth in this instance is that “there is only one Mind, one love, one purpose, active in your life and in your car.”  The purpose of the One is that you stay conscious of this moment and begin to see light filling the space where you are intended to go. You may call and tell the people that you are going to be late. You may do what you can to remedy the problem. However, you may not take the negative path to the worst case scenario and worry about it until your stomach aches and you make yourself sick! This will simply worsen the energy of the situation. Force yourself to stay positive.

Life has a way of teaching us everyday exactly what we need to grow spiritually. If you are on a spiritual path, expect to have times in your day when you must remind yourself of your truth. “I am a child of the One Mind. I will not be moved or changed by a circumstance that is only an illusion of time.” These kinds of purposeful acclamations have helped me through myriads of hard times when I could have made myself sick from worry.

If you bring light to the situation, you calm yourself and possess the power to change the circumstance. We are not on Earth to be tortured. We are on this planet to learn of our creative power and overcome the negatives, first in our own lives, to help in the lives of others, and eventually change the polarity of the entire planet to positivity! This is ours to do, not some spirit in the future. We are appearing in the clouds with the help of divine destiny and angelic forces, we will change the world.

Today’s prayer:

I am one with the Power of Love, Truth, and Wisdom. There is no negative circumstance that can hold my mind captive! I am a powerful person with purpose on this Earth. As I learn my lessons, I become stronger and even more sensitive to a larger purpose on this Earth. I gladly accept my role in this positive movement!
