The Celebration Center for Spiritual Living supports the positive transformation of both our personal lives and the world itself.
At the Celebration Center for Spiritual Living, we teach people how to have a personal relationship with God. When we are deeply connected with Spirit, other areas of our lives fall into place — we can do more for others, be better stewards of the Earth, and bring more peace and harmony to the world.
What We Believe – Our Guiding Principles
We believe that the universe is spiritual and has intelligence, purpose, beauty, and order. Our beliefs are in harmony with all the world’s great spiritual teachings, and we honor all paths to God. Whether we call it God, Spirit, Energy, or Universal Intelligence, we are ever conscious that all people, places, and things emanate from this Universal Intelligence that is within us and all around us.
You and God are Inseparable
We believe that God is a Loving Intelligence, operating in and through all life, never separate from anyone or anything. Through study and spiritual practice we come to understand our oneness with this indwelling Divine Presence. We teach and practice a way of life where we can all learn how to live in accordance with spiritual principles. These principles, which we call the Science of Mind, are as reliable as the laws of physical science. We believe in Cause and Effect and teach that “It is done unto you as you believe.” In essence, your thinking and your expectations create your reality. By studying and applying spiritual laws, you can change your unconscious beliefs and create improved conditions in your life.
Be a Part of an Inclusive Community
The Celebration Center for Spiritual Living teaches a New Thought philosophy that incorporates affirmative prayer, meditation, healing, visioning, and other spiritual tools to help you lead a spiritual life, think positively, and love deeply. As a member of our community, you’ll find the spiritual tools to transform your personal life and make the world a more peaceful, harmonious, and prosperous place.
The New Thought tradition dates to the 1880s and has its roots in the Transcendentalist Movement of the 1830s. New Thought has an enduring and respected legacy that includes luminaries such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emma Curtis Hopkins, Phineas Quimby, and Walt Whitman. Some of the better known authors today whose writings represent our teachings are Michael Bernard Beckwith, Oprah Winfrey, Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, Byron Katie, and Eckhart Tolle, as well as many others. Our teachings incorporate the ancient wisdom of all the spiritual traditions through the ages. People of all spiritual paths — Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Islam, New Age and others — are all welcome in our communities.
Treatment by Tammi McKinley, RScP
In It’s Up to You by Ernest Holmes, he lists ten steps in personal achievement. Number Nine is to take prayer and affirmative meditation into your personal achievement. He says that your whole life should be a prayer.
And so I pray.
I know that there is one Life, one Source, that expresses as Wisdom and Peace, Love and Abundance, and as every God quality that exists. I know that God is all there is.
I am one with and inseparable from the Divine. I am a perfect expression of God. As I know this about me I know this to be so of everyone. God acts in, as and through each of us. It is so.
I speak my word that Life is a prayer. I know that prayer is when I want to change conditions in my life. I also know that prayer is when I want a greater expansion of things in my life. My every thought is a prayer. I am mindful and allow the Good to be revealed so that I may have an even greater expression of that which I desire. I do not wait to pray only for when I want something. I am constantly praying. It comes easily and naturally. Divine wisdom flows though me and through each one of us. We know that our thoughts are our prayers and so we constantly are praying. It is so.
I give great thanks for this knowing. I am thrilled knowing that my words are already worked on in the One Mind. I am joyous that this knowing cannot be returned to me void.
I now release my words into the Law. I let them go. I let them be.
And so it is.
