"The light of God surrounds us. The love of God enfolds us. The power of God protects us. The Presence of God watches over us. Wherever we are God is." Author: James Dillet Freeman

Pour Your Spirit

Pour your spirit of love out today with me. It's a GREAT! GREAT Day. I'm doing a dance combining the Nigerian JUJU, African-American Funk, Salsa, and Cha-Cha! Dance with me today for it is the day the Lord (Law of right action, love, beauty, peace, Joy, Power, Divine order, Wholeness and Perfection) has made. Rejoice and be Glad in it.  Toast to another year of health and wellness by celebrating with me and having a healthy smoothie. Here's a recipe to
Ethel's Green Love Potion(TM) that I love:
    1 peach, apple, pear, or banana
    2-3 kale leaves (cleaned, with stems)
    1TBL - sunflower seeds
    2-3 Figs
    1TBL - wheat germ
    1/8 cup Almond milk
    1/8 cup - prune juice
Put all ingredients into a blender. Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Pour into a beautiful tall glass. Tip your glass and "Toast to Life and renewed health".
I thank God for the regeneration occurring right now this very moment and each moment of our lives. I am full today... So very thankful and I don't care who knows it, as a matter of fact I want everybody to know it, because if God is blessing me you had better know God is blessing you as well. God is no respecter of persons but we have to walk in Spirit and stay in flow with God's Will recognizing that God is with us always and there is no separation from God except in our thinking which guides our behavior. My love, faith and joy are renewed so here's to you FB and Blogspot family. I love you with a clean, unadulterated and lively spirit. Oh yeah, remember this... People everywhere can see your genius; it is indeed the God in you. So recognize it yourself, appreciate it and BE just what the Almighty is as It works in, through and as You. Trust the Divine within.  The best is not yet to come; it is NOW! The best is given every single moment that you choose to validate and love Yourself by Being who God created you to be!  
I raise my green smoothie glass to You!
Be breez"E".

Back To School Inner Glow - Fall 2012

I pray for all the children, Black, Yellow, Brown, Red, and  White, including gays, straight, all religions, genders and creeds will have the most wonderful, productive, safe and healthy school year which propels them to demonstrate more of the greatness that is within them, ready to burst forth in all of its glory. This inner greatness is being called forth from the Universal Source for healing in the world. 

Let us show them that they are valued. And if you cannot show them, at the very least, tell them, that they are valued. Let them know, emphatically and without having to guess, that they are cared for and valued. Our children have so very much to give this world and it all begins with the immediate family and expands into the school, then the community and then the world at large.

When our children know that greatness is within themselves as well as within everyone else; then much of the violence, jealousy, back-stabbing, and self-deprecation which outwardly expresses as hatred of others; will dissipate. Psychological and Sociological studies support the following theory that a poor, loathing self-concept  will more likely cause self-destruction and consequently, even more destruction in the enviornment and communities wherein we live. Ask what this may mean to you and your family.

May we all help our children to value who they are regardless of the mis-takes that they make or have made. Who among us have never made mis-takes? Who among us will never make mis-takes again? Making mis-takes is the human-being kind of learning, and evolving process whereby we get better at decision-making with each mistake from which we honestly deal with, which in turn promotes "learning and growth".

It is 12:00 noon, have you hugged your child today? Give your children and even other children who may not be yours a positive word of encouragement. Let them know you expect positive and life-engendering kinds of thinking from them. Help them to know loving-kindness, pardon and toleration.  Reward your children for taking responsibility for their own actions; letting them know that there is absolutely nothing weak or wrong with an appropriately deserved apology. Commend them for demonstrating patience and showing good manners to all people, and not just for those whom they have labelled "celebrity".  Let them know we all are to be celebrated; then let us watch miracles begin to happen in our families, communities and our world at large.

Good Day!
In the Living Spirit,
Rev. Ethel RA.

Smooches! and Hugs!

Indelible Marks of Strength

The story of young Gabby Douglas impels monumental strength on many levels. In this video entitled Raising an Olympian - GABBY DOUGLAS, aspects of her life detailing  the "hard work" involved which led to her culminating moment of success are discussed. These cross-sections of her life and training leave me deeply touched and encouraged.

Having moved many, many miles from her home, family, and friends; the physical and mental strength of this young lady impresses me and offers vital nutrients for anyone who values personal growth. With incredible persistence, Gabby keeps her eye on the prize, beginning with her own recognition of her talent which led to her taking responsibility for acknowledging that she wanted the best coaches and training to hone her skills. At her young age she refuses to allow negative remarks to deter her efforts.

On every level, her mother's love cut through barriers of fear, doubt and worry and all that was familiar faded to memories. An amazing feat: her mother loved her, guided her and parented her from afar. Despite deep emotional feelings of missing Gabby and she being home sick, her mom helped her realize the high road of completing the task that she set out to finish.

The honesty, willingness, and courage of the newly extended family was a show of loving kindness beyond measure. Deeply heartfelt, all parts became one synchronized body with strong intention; all becoming the stepping stones of persistence to the victorious pinnacle of success.

After viewing, please respond by sharing a word, phrase or idea that comes to your awareness; one  which will leave an indelible mark on your life. Consider how Gabby's life has made an impact on yours. What major implications regarding decision-making and responsible choice selection does her life's examples offer you?

I give thanks to God, including everyone involved for providing the world this living demonstration of what we have the capacity to do when we work together in love, truth, honor and mutual respect.  The gift to the world is the "good" that each of us will "share" with another as a result of allowing ourselves to feel the impact of Gabby's life and success. Leave your comment below.

Live well, Laugh heartily and Love truly,

Blessed Good Friday and Happy Easter

Living Deeply Practice: "Aligning with Spirit" with Michael Bernard Beckwith | IONS Library | Institute of Noetic Sciences  (Click on this link to listen)
I am sharing this recording of Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith founder and Spiritual Leader of  Agape International Spiritual Center in Culver City, California. This recording can be located and downloaded in the library of the Institute of Noetic Sciences.

May your "Good Friday" be experienced like none other. From this day forward be blessed and be released into the freedom that is yours by right of consciousness: by your innate identity as the projected idea of Creative Mind [God's idea and outworked expression of Itself]. Blessed Good Friday and Happy Easter to all. Here's to celebrating your resurrection with a richness of vivid beauty, unpretentiousness,  love and sheer joy.

In the LivingSpirit Iam,

Ever-Wonderful You

Nothing but the grace of God. May we stay focussed in 2012 and keep the faith, trusting God - the Source and Substance of our supply. Remember God (the Creative Source and Force) is with us and forever for us. God is everfaithful and is always working in our lives. The musical giants, Earth Wind and Fire stated this way in their song entitled, "Be Ever Wonderful"!
Those situations that look bleak on the outside are disguising a wonderful new growth to be revealed. Oh, I know it still does not feel too good. Our job is to keep our eye (our mental attention and resources) and our "I am" (that with which we repeatedly identify and claim as ours) on the prize; continually knowing that God is always providing for (universal) good, while the Living Spirit is nudging us within, constantly guiding how, when, and where we are to move our feet for the collective and always higher good, of everyone involved.
Tyler Perry says believe in what you are doing and then keep your focus there. In essence, he tells us that we will see the fruits of our belief.

In his book The Laws of Prosperity,  E. Bernard Jordan states, "God is the ultimate source, and his Divine nature grants us the power to order and manifest whatever kind of reality we can create. All new things...begin as ideas in a fertile Mind skilled at manifestation. We have only to hold the I Am in our minds, and gradually the forces of the universe pool and gather like an accumulating electrical current to break into the material plane and give us our desire."

I give thanks for these messages and the awareness that comes through them. May we gain more focus on the Divine as we unfold our beliefs. As we live, move and have being remain ever-wonderful.

Be Richly Blessed

Many say that we are born on this earth and we come without an instruction manual. Many books of sacred writings offer plenty instructions; the question is how earnest are we in our search and desire to use the instruction? Be richly blessed with a vital instruction that gives and keeps giving.

This scriptural reference is taken from the Amplified Bible: Ephesians 4:29 -
"Let no foul or polluting language, nor evil word nor unwholesome or worthless talk [ever] come out of your mouth, but only such [speech] as is good and beneficial to the spiritual progress of others, as is fitting to the need and the occasion, that it may be a blessing and give grace [God's favor] to those who hear it."
Need I say anything more but be diligent, be true to yourselfbe blessed and be a blessing to others? Advice such as this will prosper in ways beyond what we can imagine. Try it and see and then pass it on. Have a day of blessings upon blessings upon blessings.

Love, Laughter and Peace,
     In the Living Spirit,

Heads Up Mr & Ms Amazing

Stay well All - Let's know today, for ourselves and for another person in your life that God is the good and very good provision for the unfoldment of our highest potential now. Keep Your Head to the Sky   is what the divine expression of the 70's music group  Earth Wind and Fire told us and "the clouds will tell us why" Head Up (click link). Get still and know God within you, in this moment. Keep your focus on your dreams and that which truly matters to you; doing so places our dreams on the path of our goals and on target for formation.
"The clouds will tell us why"; it is because God is Awesome and you and I are individual expressions of "amazing" love.  Here's why according to the love that streams through Megon McDonough Amazing (click link).

Heads Up Mr. and Ms. Amazing.

Love, Hugs, and Blessings,
In the LivingSpirit, I Am.

It's a New You Couples

To the married couples: Ask yourself how much precious time are you willing to keep wasting by abusing and misusing the talents and uniqueness of one anonther? Playing mental and competitive games with one another, while your life and your children’s' lives just slip on by unproductively cared for and poorly invested in becomes the norm when these patterns are not recognized and deliberately changed?  

Marriage is a give and receive kind of deal – it takes compromise from BOTH parties involved. If you are unwilling to compromise you will more than likely find yourself lonely. It takes two people to marry, therefore the two involved will need to discuss the hard stuff, the ugly stuff as well as the good and fun stuff to make the marriage work; which then teaches and demonstrates effective ways of dealing with life's issues to the entire family. Your children will learn to handle differently, the situations that they encounter in their daily affairs. Your family's way of discussing topics and handling issues with more reasoning and acceptance will be heightened. It's a new year; try handling your issues in a different way - a lighter and more negotiable way.

Check yourself and take stock; are you wasting and/or abusing life with arguements, fighting and competitive crap; or are you investing in it? If you are investing in it, what are your investments? Are they positive thoughts and loving deeds? Are they meaningful teachings for your children?  Are you growing healthily as a family whereby you may be completing physical workouts together? Are your energies focussed on the strength, health and vitalization of your partner and your family or are they antagonistic and bitterly exhaustive? Ask yourself, Do you need to cut your losses and work out a vitiation plan for the children or should you seek professional family or couples counseling? Only you know the answers but this is a new year and time is too PRECIOUS to keep doing the same old things unless the same old things are working for the highest good of everyone involved.
God has given us a mind to dip into the beautiful plethora of infinite possibilities. Start choosing together to partake in those which take you and your family forward; those that involve more and greater joy. Yes, work is a part of achieving the joy; therefore everyone will need to take a role in achieving the work and the challenges will need to be evenly distributed. Here's a thought: take turns exchanging tasks so that everyone involved gets the opportunity to work through different roles and not just the easy, enjoyable and glorious ones. Challenge yourself to make the less desireable tasks more tolerable and share (not push down the throat) your suggestions with your loved ones. I reiterate the word "share". Too often we can allow our ego which is eager to control to get in the way of  lovingkindness and reason.

Here's to the brand new couples who have made a vow to be the best team they can be in love, truth and respect. This message is sent with love to any couple, married or simply platonic friendships. See what you can do this year to make the relationship better, even if it is just one difference. Look ahead to the end of the scenario and discuss how you both want it to look in 1 month... 3 months...6 months and so on. Then return to it, work together and bring that scenario into reality. Stop allowing daytime and nightime television dramas and society's ill-adjusted conditioning dictate how your relationships will work. Your realationship is yours - take ownership and love it like only your unique self is instructed from within.

Blessings All ~

Just A Word

I was thinking about a friend who nudged me on Facebook. In my response to her nudge, I wanted to send out thoughts and vibrations of peace and love to her; and it dawned on me that I want her and everyone I know to receive this vibe. So here it goes beloveds.  I believe that everyone (whether I speak to friends in the USA or abroad) is feeling effects from the currents of the universal "shift". Day by day things appear to be changing rapidly. Some of us feel that we may be losing our grip. My reply to that is, "let go". Many of us are holding onto stuff that needs to be released; some of which we don't realize has no meaning other than to take up valuable space and possibly using up and misaligning valuable attention which distracts us from our inherent individual vision. Our individual vision has been purposed and sanctified for use in God's Universal Plan. Your Divine Self is awakened and is growing from within. Take time each day to know yourself on this level by receiving vital substance from inside yourself. Sit still lovlies: you are an offspring of God. Make the time to do what it takes to keep your focus on your vision.

Oh, I know it does not feel very comfortable, but I also know that God (the All-Powerful, All-Knowing, OmniPresence and Creative Source)  is my help in every need and is always with me; from which I can never be separated except in my own thinking and awareness of the Presence. With that knowledge and awareness, I know I can queue into the Presence while being guided and supplied. Yes! I am guided and provided in this moment, and if in this moment then in every moment and for every need. Knowing this, I can call forth and engage in peace when I need comforting, sufficiency and freedom from debt, honest-loving-supportive and forgiving friendships and God-inspired relationships. I can call forth health, wholesomeness, strength and flexibility in my body and I can call forth energy, money, tools and all right resources necessary to live my "now-ness".  God is constantly providing supply.

This is a word I hear from on High and I hope this word helps you stand firm in this moment so that you can be lifted by the Divine within, higher than that which is happening around you.  Let us stand together knowing that the Divine One within does all the work to, through and as each of us and collectively we join for the betterment of all beings.

Keep your focus on your vision.

Know that we have been equiped and therefore furnished for service to deal with this storm.

See ya!

Do The Twenty Twelve Delve! Happy 2012

You may remember a dance from the 70's called "the Hustle", well intead of doing the Hustle let's do "The Twenty-Twelve Delve", that is,  do the "Delve into 2012's Infnite Possibilities" like never before. For sure, all kinds of things are happening and it's high time we started to live like never before. Included here are some basic guidelines for this dance of life, and once you have the basics - just like any other dance - take these guidelines and form and shape them into your own unique style.
  1. Release and Let Go of  that prior to 2012 which no longer works for your highest good. Do not spend valuable time uselessly trying to will-power these behaviors away; instead invest your time by replacing outdated thoughts and behaviors with what you want to see more of in your life. See the  kinds of experiences you truly desire in your mind's eye and keep them there as often as possible. 
  2. Know What You Believe! If your beliefs are wholesome and beneficial to you as well as harmless to others, then you will place trust in them and  they will guide your actions in a positive and productive direction. When we begin to see positive and productive movement in our lives, we feel a sense of accomplishment, value and worthiness. Others will willingly contribute.
  3.  Know Yourself and do what it takes to Believe in yourself. You and I are matriculating in this world for a greater purpose than meets the eye. Commit to doing the ongoing introspection and meditation necessary to know yourself honestly so that you can continue to radiate and move from a firm foundation based on truth, clarity and faith. 
  4. Dig Deeper and Focus your time, attention, effort and resources on activities, situations, places and people that invest in and support you and that which you value, rather than those offering a simple stroking of your ego. An ego boost is a quickie - a superficial and temporary pat on the head which requires continual stroking from something/someone outside of ourselves. When we are truly energized from within we begin to use our God-given talents, gifts and abilities to be all we are created to be. We become driven from meaning and purpose rather than from superficiality.  
  5. Do What You Can Do Now - Today! Yesterday is done, tomorrow is untold and Now is the gem. Utilize what you have and that which you have access. As we keep our feet moving we will see our projects grow and increase. We have all we need right now to begin, or continue our quest, or to pivot our direction. 
Happy delving into 2012's infinite possibilities. Delve into 2012 heartily! Delve into 2012 with intention.

Much Love, Joy, Peace & Abundance,
In the LivingSpirit I Am,
