CONCERT – A mystical Evening with Woven Green

Join Woven Green for an intimate, soulful, and unique concert experience. This dynamic husband-wife duo, blend their original contemporary folk, rock, world, and new age music in a spiritual stream of consciousness that invites listeners to the transcendental and mythic world they so passionately inhabit. Watch and listen as the couple synergistically flows between instruments (including guitars, native flutes, keys, loop stations, and other world instruments), story- telling, and relevant, potent lyrical content from songs off their debut award-winning album, “Into Bloom.”

Noteworthy music review says, “Woven Green’s album, ‘Into Bloom,’ is a standout work of inspiration art that reflects the undeniable musicianship and vocal talent of this one of a kind group. From ballads, to rocking jams and native inspired tunes, Woven Green is an extremely versatile group that offers listeners a journey into something that is even deeper than the music itself – a connection, a healing, a growing, a spiritual experience and a chance to see nature through the eyes, hearts and voices of the duo.”

As you prepare to join me in prayer, I invite you to just pause a moment in your own space and find your peace.  
 
(pause)
 
And so I begin in this place of peace, this place where we can all feel the Presence and recognize it as Spirit.
 
We simple allow ourselves to become One with that Presence, with Spirit, and One with each other.  
 
I realize the Divine nature of the beautiful blues sky today.  And I know that Spirit has already manifested a certainty of rain in the near future.  It is the rain that allows all life to thrive here on this earth.  It is the rain that is a gift from God, just as is the blue sky and sunshine.  They are all aspects of the Divine realization of Spirit as All life, and also as the rain and the earth that soaks it all up.  
 
I am so grateful for these recognitions and sense of unity and the realizations of Spirit here on Earth, all around all of us, now. Our gratitude expands as life expands and life expands as our gratitude expands.  They go together.
 
So, I simply release these words, and the gratitude for life, into the Law of Life and let them work in all that is.  
 
And so it is!  Amen.

We Are at Choice and Choose Wisely
Treatment by Rich Kurasiewicz, RScP
Summer weather and activities are in full swing, and coming up on the dog days of summer! With so much going on, are you taking time to focus on spiritual matters through daily spiritual practices? It’s important to find the time to raise our consciousness to connect with the Christ within, and to know the Truth that sets us free! We are at choice and choose wisely! And so we pray….
 
God is the One Power and One Presence, the One Mind in the entire Universes! God is all there is—the Creator and the Creation, all Life and is all Good. God is in, around, through and throughout everything and everyone. God is omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent—the Alpha and the Omega! And, I am that I am! I am one of the Father and the One Presence, One Power and One Mind. I and the Father are one and I am perfect, whole, complete, eternal and immortal!
 
And just as I am perfect, whole, and complete, each and every one is perfect, whole, complete, eternal, and immortal. I declare that we know the Truth and it sets us free. I know that we are divine and spiritual beings and all we need to do is to speak our Word to manifest what we desire! We express gratitude for all the blessings of good in our lives as we joyfully accept the gift that has already been made! I know that we have all that we need to live successfully and in joy, and we are grateful. I declare that we take the time to connect with the Truth and Love within as we are the light of the world. I know that we maintain our focus on what we want and express gratitude for all the good in our lives.
 
I am so very grateful for the all the good and blessings in our lives. I am so very grateful for the Truth that sets us free and the light that is within. I am grateful for Life and Good which are a manifestation of God. And I release my word unto the Law where it is already known in the mind of God. I know that my word will not return unto me void. I do give thanks that this is so and so it is!

Leap! – The Power of a Dream

By on August 30, 2017 in Metaphysical Reviews

In the 1975 Broadway musical A Chorus Line, there is a scene where one of the main characters, Cassie, is asked by the director why she is still trying out for the chorus when she has been a lead. She answers tellingly, “I’m a dancer. A dancer dances.”

Felicie, the heroine of Leap!, would understand. Felicie is an orphan in an orphanage in Brittany in nineteenth-century France. The only thing she has left from her mother is a beautiful music box with a ballerina dancing in it. She dreams of escaping the orphanage and becoming a great ballerina. Her best friend Victor also dreams of escaping the orphanage. He dreams of becoming a great inventor.

Victor rigs up a device to fly away from the orphanage. It doesn’t quite work, but it lands them in a truck headed to Paris for a farmer’s market. Upon their arrival in Paris, Felicie and Victor get split up, but they stay in touch and help support each other as they navigate their way through their new situations and towards their dream.

Felicie wanders into the Academie National des Artes, where she sees a great ballerina before getting mistaken for a thief and nearly arrested. This simply reminds Felicie of her dream of becoming a great ballerina. Meanwhile, she winds up getting attached to a cleaning lady with a cane.

Victor, meanwhile, has hooked on as an apprentice to a sculptor who is making a large statue to send to America. While at work, he continues to work on his wings.

After a lot of training and hard work, Felicie winds up competing against the daughter of a very wealthy patron of the arts for the privilege of playing Clara in a production of The Nutcracker. Both are asked why they dance. Felicie answers that she dances because it’s what she has wanted to do since she was a little girl; it’s how she expresses herself. It’s her dream.

A confrontation ensues with the other girl’s mother, who is determined that her daughter must have the part. Eventually, she is saved by Victor’s flying wings. His invention is working!

Leap! is about dreams. It’s about pursuing your dream at all costs, about surrendering and working to achieve that which is yours to do, about following that which drives you, no matter what it takes to get there.

Leap! is sweet, fun, adventuresome, and inspiring. You will not regret spending a little while in this world. I highly recommend it. Inspire yourself and go see Leap!

The Abundant Universe

The Abundant Universe

Treatment by Suzanne Delahaie, RScP, MiT

A busy and fairly costly couple of days.  Busy, because we have class work, and I have a paper due on Monday. SOOO…

 

Anyone who heard our car, would know that we needed a muffler. That is where the cost comes in.  We took the car to a nationally advertised shop, and they gave us an estimate of 1,100+. Explaining that there was not only the muffler, but the pipes and a few other things that needed to be replaced.  That was too much.  Our neighborhood all around fix-it, gardener, and handyman, said he could do it for less, though he would need to get the parts, etc.  We ended up with an estimate of 800+ from the nationally known chain, and we decided to take it (in part because of a warrantee, which would apply to every where we might take the car.) And they could do it in time to get the car to the emissions inspection, due today.

So I pray for financial prosperity.

I know that there is only God, in all forms, in all expressions.  I know that this includes an abundant universe.  I know that I am one with this abundance, and that I claim this abundance as mine.  I know that what I know for myself, I know for all.  I  open my bank account for the influx of financial abundance.  I know that wherever I look, I see the abundance of the universe.  It is mine, I claim it.  And I do so, knowing that this abundant universe is there for everyone and my claiming only creates more for everyone to claim theirs.  It is experiencing this abundance, that I know that all is well, and that I give thanks for the truth.  I now release this statement of truth to the law of the universe, knowing that  all is well.

In love and truth.
