I am beyond excited to have the Alchemists in the House this Sunday! They will bless us by guiding each of us to discover our “name” under which we’ll navigate the coming year. This has become an annual MUST for each of us to honor our place in the New Year. So, what do you want more of in your Life in this New Year?
Love? Be Love! Let your thoughts be thoughts of Love, and Love will follow. Peace? Be Peace! Let your thoughts be of Peace, and Peace will follow. Financial Prosperity? . . . .see where this is going?
Money is energy like everything else. Financial Prosperity is Good! It allows us to do the work that needs to be done! It allows us to work our purpose. When the energy of money is working in our lives and we don’t have to constantly focus on material concerns, then our brains can shift out of survival mode and into creating the Good we want to Claim. And, we will be able to more easily have an experience of ourselves as that Good. So, don’t downplay the spiritual importance of money.
Now, what is it you want to claim?
We are made in the image of God in this “Yes!” Universe. If God is Good and Everywhere Present, and I am created in that Image, then I Am Good. Right? Claim out loud: “I Am Good”. Moses told the story of God declaring to be “I Am That.” If I am in God and God is in me, then claim, “I Am That” out loud. In this Yes Universe, whatever your personal definition of God is, you are That. It’s the basis for how you live, move, and have your being as you are on this planet earth. Whatever your definition of God is, you are That. I hope it’s a good definition.
Know thyself . . .
So, what is “That”? “That” is how you express your Good, your divinity. “Where attention goes, energy flows.” I promise that you will see in your world, whatever your thoughts are focused on – whether or not you are watching your thoughts – and that is what you are claiming.
When we are not watching our thoughts, the tapes from the subconscious mind are rolling. Clearing out the shadows of the subconscious mind through prayer and meditation, through wisdom and compassion, will greatly enhance your ability to claim your Highest Good. This is why it is so important for each of us to do the work that needs to be done. The sacred inner work that cannot be done by anyone else.
A simple path to claiming your Good is Gratitude.
“Gratitude is one of the chief graces of human existence and is crowned in heaven with a consciousness of unity.” (Ernest Holmes)
Grace, is a virtue from/as God. The Crown is a chakra located at the very top of the head and is associated with divine wisdom, our spirit, our Oneness with the Universe, our Unity with all that is, and Enlightenment. According to the Revealing Word, Heaven is “Christ Consciousness; . . . a state of consciousness in harmony with the thoughts of God(Love). Heaven is everywhere present. It is the orderly law adjustment of God’s Kingdom in man’s mind, body, and affairs.”
What we’re talking about is the relationship between the head(crown) and the heart(heaven). When we align divine wisdom and unity from the “crown” with the limitless compassion of Christ Consciousness/Heaven, we are poised for receiving many graces, not the least of which is Gratitude. The alignment of the two creates the possibilities for the human experience to become divine.
“The greatest good that can come to anyone is forming within them an absolute certainty of themselves, and of their relationship to the Universe, forever removing the sense of heaven as being outside of them.” (Ernest Holmes)
This is the time, the hour has come, the moment is now. If your definition of God is anything other than All-Good, change it immediately! You may not always be able to believe it and own it, but you can “fake it, ‘til you make it”. You’ll get there – we all will! Together in Unity.
Be Still and Know . . .
