Rev Sandy Clark Final 8 14 2012

I have recently been reminded of some old lessons I thought I had worked through but as we know we are only able to get in touch and let go of part of them. Sometimes a bigger chunk more than others, but we keep getting the opportunity to give it another go so to speak. I like to say that is what life is all about. No time table, we have a lifetime.

I was quite mad at myself because I had found myself in a place I thought I had already worked through. It is easy to get sucked back in. I have always felt it was spirits way of asking “did I really want to let go of my old beliefs.”

The good part of my story is that I recognized what had happened (well to be truthful the recognition came after being hit on the head by a two by four) and have been able to stop that backward, to me, motion. The difficult part now, is that I am in new territory, and learning how to walk again!

I know I am not the only one in this situation. With the changes in energy surrounding all of us, we are all learning to walk again.

May all our baby steps become giant leaps of Faith.

In Light and Love,

Sandy

The Era of 2012and the Age of Inner TransformationRichard Jelusich

By Reverend Richard Jelusich, Ph.D.

It is the era of 2012; the time of the Inner Transformation. As the advanced teachings of ancient cultures like the Mayans, there really is an alignment to the Galactic Center and periodic alignments of planets, solar systems and galaxies do induce the transformation of consciousness to a higher state of being.

It really is true that you are a luminous being of light who also possesses a physical presence. It really is true that December 21st is the end of a 5115 year cycle, a 26,000 year cycle, and a 62 million year cycle. It really is true that you and 7 billion of your fellow spirits have incarnated in this era to participate in the mass inner transformation to a higher state of being that is very little like the reality we are experiencing now.

It is true that there is a photon belt and a huge magnetic bubble that our solar system is approaching. It is true that increased magnetic fields induce greater mental acuity, memory and psychic abilities. It is true that advanced human civilization goes back more than 6,000 years, to many millions of years in the past. Yet many in the U.S. believe the Earth to be only 6,000 years old.

It is true that we are experiencing more rapid growth in the past 60 years than we have in the past 600 years.

Where is the 2012 era headed?

A birth is not without some kind of labor pains, and the newness of one’s birth is like nothing that came before. As we appear to be approaching the limits of our abilities to absorb and integrate information in our minds, so also there are many distractions because of our information era as well. We are IN the golden age: it is transpiring as we speak.

The 2012 era is not apocalyptic or catastrophic. It is not the movie actor John Cusak heading for the Himilayas to get on the arc in the face of impending tsunamis and massive earthquakes. It is not the end of the world, magnetic pole reversal, solar flares and E.T.’s.

2012 is indeed about earthquakes, but they are earthquakes of your mind, not the planet. The ancients, who were you, knew about the cyclicalities and periodicities of space/time. They understood their luminous nature and that in the physical dimension there would be certain alignments of planets, solar systems and galaxies that would be ‘punctuated equilibrium’: moments in space/time that would facilitate a rise in consciousness, IF the people were focused on their true spiritual nature, and not only on the physical dimension.

Feeling Resistance to Change?By Minister Maryellen DeVineMin Maryellen DeVine

Haven’t you noticed lots of change happening lately?

It seems to me that so many of us are evolving. Feeling “What’s the next step?” or being drawn to some next step. That’s been true for me too. I’ve been working on a new program I’m offering, worked with a graphic artist to create the new banner for the Angelic Journeys website, and did a re-design of the site. That has been a very powerful and creative process.

These have all been exciting changes for me, yet change can make us uncomfortable sometimes. Sometimes we notice that we are resisting, or perhaps the change truly is a difficult one to go through. In the spirit of this, I thought I’d give you a sample Angelic EFT tapping script for dealing with change.

If you are unfamiliar with EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), you can start by watching a short video to learn how to “tap”. (Click here to watch)

Here is a script of statements you can use to tap with on the subject of dealing with change. Before you start, let’s call our angels to us so that they can assist; filling the space with Love and Light and healing energy.

Think about and get in touch with the emotions around Change.

Set up statements (side of the hand):

Even though I’m resisting this change, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Even though I’m having a really hard time with this change, I accept myself anyway.

Even though I’m really anxious about this change, I’m open to feeling better about it, right now.

Top of head: This anxiety

Eyebrow: This change

Side of Eye: It’s causing anxiety

Cheekbone: I don’t like change

Under nose: It makes me feel anxious

Chin: I feel the anxiety in my body

Collarbone: I release the fear of change

Under arm: This fear really doesn’t serve me

Top of head: What if this change really is a good thing?

Eyebrow: But I don’t like change

Side of eye: I choose to release the fear around change

Cheekbone: It really doesn’t serve me

Under nose: This change might be leading me to something great

Chin: I am open to believing that this is true

Collarbone: I ask my angels to help me with this

Under arm: I choose to trust in the divine plan

Top of head: I release the anxiety and fear

Eyebrow: Those just muddle up my vision

Side of eye: I am open to clarity about this change

Cheekbone: I can trust that I’ll be divinely led to any action steps I need to take

Under nose: What if this is leading me to something wonderful?

Chin: I choose to release the fear now!

Collarbone: I am open to seeing the positives in this change

Under arm:   And in this positive mindset, I lift my vibration

Top of head: As I lift my vibration, I align with infinite possibilities

Eyebrow: There are so many possibilities available

Side of Eye: I am open to receiving goodness in my life

Cheekbone: I’m excited to see what the Divine has in store for me!

Under nose: I choose to trust

Chin: I am open to shifting to believing in a wonderful outcome

Collarbone: I choose that for myself now

Under arm:   And so it is! Thank you, Angels!

Take in a nice deep breath. How are you feeling now? Has the intensity gone down? Are you feeling more peaceful about it? If the intensity hasn’t gone down as much as you’d like, you can do the whole sequence again. Add in your own words to make it more specific to your own situation if you’d like.

Often when we do this process, we clear the emotion and it allows for another thought or feeling or memory to come up. It could be a memory of a time when a particular change was hard for you (often from childhood). Tap on that memory. You can make your statements something like: That time when I was ten and we moved; I hated moving; I had to leave all my friends; I hate change; it’s hard; I didn’t want to move; my parents made me; moving sucked!; change sucks!; etc, etc. Just keep tapping and keep “spewing” the words and feelings that are coming up for you.

It’s powerful stuff!

I’d love to hear from you on how the tapping worked for you!

Choices… what are you choosing?Felecia with Butterfly's

By Reverend Felecia Mulvany, D.D.

These are very challenging times. Our choices create our reality and the level of challenges we face both individually and collectively.

This time in history will be one of those times future humans look back to and hopefully learn from. Our galaxy is currently being absorbed by the Milky Way galaxy (a higher vibration then ours) which is coinciding with the end of the Mayan calendar on Dec 21, 2012. There are also planetary alignments that are affecting us, assisting us on our journey and giving us every opportunity to clear the old and embrace the new.

If we can remain mindful of what is actually happening it will be easier to stay at our centers, as the witness. This allows us to be an observer, detached but still aware, instead of being in a state of reacting. Reacting allows our energies to sink lower, creating more challenges for us. The November election has been a timely opportunity for us to practice our mindfulness, detachment, and our ability to discern the truth. Those sinking into lower vibrations are using this time to trick, manipulate, and deceive others in order to hold on to their old beliefs and old ways. Its time to rely on ourselves for the truth, the truth that is uniquely ours, for this is both a personal journey and a planetary journey in an amazing time in history which we have all chosen to participate and grow in.

We have a plethora of choices, one of those being how we view and experience our reality. Examples:

Are you choosing to stay the witness and be in awe of the incredible opportunities for growth?

Are you choosing to dig your heels in and hang on to the old?

Are you choosing to be a victim?

Are you choosing to do nothing, not take responsibility for your own actions, and just bounce wherever creation takes you?

Are you choosing to stay the witness but sometimes loose your balance and temporarily fall into another reality until you can find your balance again?

Are you choosing love or hate?

Whatever we choose to experience isn’t good or bad, hard or easy. It is just our personal experience, our personal path in the evolution of our soul. Who and how we are in the creations is our choice and our responsibility. What are you choosing?

Sending love, light and blessings to all!

Rev. Felecia Mulvany, D.D.

Reverend Felecia Mulvany, currently UCM Vice President, Trustee and Associate Dean of the Seminary, was instrumental in the creation and accreditation of the UCM under graduate and graduate degree programs.

She teaches Reiki, color energy therapy, meditation, Past Life Regression, Soul Retrieval, a 13 month Advanced Master Healers Course and sponsors students for the ministry. She creates and performs custom ceremonies for many religions, Sunday services, spiritual retreats and home/office blessings and clearings.

Recognizing this is not a “one size fits all” planet, Reverend Mulvany is dedicated to helping others find their individual paths of enlightenment and feels that UCM, with its absence of dogma, is an essential spiritual community which fosters just that.

 About UCM 

UCM was founded as a church in which members are encouraged to develop and exercise their spiritual powers. We discourage adherence to rigid dogmas and tenets, believing that each person must find and travel his/her own path in the Light, and that no single set of fixed rules is applicable to everyone in their spiritual quest.

From its earliest years, UCM has emphasized spiritual healing, prophecy and demonstrations of the continuity of life beyond the transition commonly called “death”. As we move closer to world unity and a new age of Universal Brotherhood and Sisterhood, UCM is now placing greater attention upon training and developing the spiritual powers of its ministers to bring us into this new “Golden Age”.

Military Humor:

A young naval student was being put through the paces by an old sea captain. “What would you do if a sudden storm sprang up on the starboard?” asked the captain. “Throw out an anchor, sir.” replied the naval student. “What would you do if another storm sprang up aft?” asked the captain. “Throw out another anchor, sir.” answered the student. “And if another terrific storm sprang up forward, what would you do?” asked the captain. “Throw out another anchor.” replied the student. “Hold on,” said the Captain. “Where are you getting all your anchors from?” The naval student
replied, “From the same place you’re getting all of your storms, sir.”

Forge Your Own Path”

with Rev. Doti Boon
Honoring Those Servingin Uniform

This Sunday we will be observing Veteran’s Day. And, I realize that many folks wonder why anyone wants to join an organization that requires you to wear a uniform and give your services and sometimes your life to helping others.
Think about it. Every morning through-out the world there are people not only putting on military uniforms and flight gear but putting on grey jackets with Post Office emblems, blue scrubs, smocks or white jackets with hospital identification, janitorial and garbage collecting uniforms, firefighting equipment, police uniforms, construction crew orange vests, ministerial collars and robes, and even clown noses, in an attempt to help the citizenry be happier, healthier, spiritual and safe.
Even though you may not think of it in this way – these people wearing uniforms are all types of veterans. Men and women who have chosen a different and unique lifestyle. We realize that the firefighters and police risk their lives every day just as the military personnel. But how about the risk of getting jabbed with a needle containing contaminated blood, or standing out in front of freeway traffic with a “slow” sign? Why do some people choose these dangerous and difficult jobs?
Because they are unique and have chosen their own paths. No two people are identical, not even identical twins; each one of us chooses the career and the journey that suits who we are. Hopefully you have chosen to be one-of-a-kind. Because, it is impossible to be someone else!
From the day we are born and open our eyes, we start to grow into the person we will ultimately become, and although our parents and mentors have a large impact on our upbringing, we end up choosing our own journey – whatever it entails. And you know what? You can change to what you really want to do if you don’t feel successful.

“There is only one success: 
To be able to spend your life in your own way”.
Christopher Morely

Remember, you do not have to do what other people tell you to do! I know you are constantly advised by family, friends, strangers and the media to act, behave and live in certain ways. But remember, you have the ultimate choice to make your own decision and forge your own path.

Be True To Yourself

Many people get into the habit of ignoring their true desires and do what they believe is expected of them. Figure out what makes you tick and pursue it; no matter how old, what gender and even if you are afraid to fail. Don’t be afraid to make a choice just because it seems a little risky – everything in life, even getting out of bed in the morning, involves risk. If you intend to truly live life – then Go For It!

It’s your life to live and your life to enjoy, no one else’s. As Patrick Denis (the author of Auntie Mame) wrote “Life is a smorgasbord and most poor suckers are starving to death.” Nobody on this planet walks the exact same path as you, and this is precisely what makes life so remarkable and fun. Although others may be able to show you parts of the path, you must take the initiative to walk it on your own.
Because as Morpheus said in The Matrix, “Neo, sooner or later you’re going to realize, just as I did, that there’s a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.”
So stay true to yourself, follow your instincts, and listen to your heart every step of the way and you will forge your own path. Remember what John Greenleaf Whittier said in 1856 “For all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these ‘it might have been’.”

Whether you are wearing a uniform and fighting for your country, a suit and tie helping folks with their mortgages,  heels and hose as you teach school or Levis to work in construction – know that what ever you are doing, where ever you work – do it with energy, enthusiasm, and passion.  Within your field you are a soldier pursuing your own path, a politician working for your own rights and most of all a healer helping yourself and others to survive and grow in this great nation we call the United States of America.

The ancients believed that the experience of Sacred Geometry was essential to the education of the soul, knowing that these patterns and codes reflected our deepest inner consciousness and most profound potential for self-awareness.
     Join Dr. Ayleen on an amazing journey into the world of what has been described as angelic tools for planetary awakening. Explore the basics of Sacred Geometry and learn how to utilize these timeless geometric codes, enhancing and intensifying your spiritual works.

AFFIRMATION

This Sunday at CCL   

“Healing for the Holidays

Charles Hall is a licensed vocational nurse who is passionate about health, wellness, having fun, personal development, fitness and nutrition. He will be talking about basic ways that we can become well again with easy steps including singing, better sleeping and walking.

                                          and

Reiki Master Regina Richmond will discuss the benefits of Reiki and how it can apply to your everyday life. She will discuss how she channels energy to help you heal. For the many CCL members who are already Reiki practitioners; Regina will talk about advance uses of Reiki for you and others during the upcoming stresses of the holidays.

Thank a Teacher Doti announcmentsMany of my clients are teachers – and they are all busily putting up holiday decorations, worrying about the Halloween candy, the re-enactment of Thanksgiving, and teaching songs for the holiday pageant. Teaching is so much more than instructing reading and writing.

I would like to thank the teachers of the world; those tireless men and women who teach us how to read, write, think, create and enjoy learning. They are there for us – sometimes when we are not there for ourselves.

One of my children’s greatest teachers was Mr. Fred Rogers – his Neighborhood was a fantastic place to learn that some days weren’t beautiful, they weren’t always happy and in fact there were some that were really sad. He taught my boys healthy ways of dealing with their feelings – ways that didn’t hurt them or anyone else – he helped to make our world a safer, better place. Or, as he would say, “In every neighborhood, all across our country, there are good people insisting on a good start for the young, and doing something about it.”

Mr. Rogers often said from the television, “I like you just the way you are.” And he was willing to help children express their feelings in ways that would bring healing in many different neighborhoods.

“When I was very young, most of my childhood heroes wore capes, flew through the air, or picked up buildings with one arm. They were spectacular and got a lot of attention. But as I grew, my heroes changed, so that now I can honestly say that anyone who does anything to help teach a child – is a hero to me.”

Fred McFeely Rogers – 3-20-28 to 2-28-2003

A Fantastic Teacher StoryStanding in front of her 5th grade class on the very first day of school, she told the children an untruth. Like most teachers, she told her students she loved them all the same. However, that was impossible, because there in the front row, slumped in his seat, was a little boy named Teddy Stoddard.

Mrs. Thompson had watched Teddy the year before and noticed that he did not play well with others, his clothes were messy and he constantly needed a bath. In addition, Teddy could be unpleasant. It got to the point where Mrs. Thompson would actually take delight in marking his papers with a broad red pen, making bold X’s and then putting a big “F” at the top of his papers.

At the school she was required to review each child’s past records and she put Teddy’s off until last. However, when she reviewed his file, she was surprised. Teddy’s first grade teacher wrote, “Teddy is a bright child with a ready laugh. He does his work neatly and has good manners…he is a joy to be around…”

His second grade teacher wrote, “Teddy is an excellent student, well-liked by his classmates, but he is troubled because his mother has a terminal illness and life at home must be a struggle.”

His third grade teacher wrote, “His mother’s death has been hard on him. He tries to do his best, but his father doesn’t show much interest, and his home life will affect him if some steps aren’t taken.”

Teddy’s fourth grade teacher wrote, “Teddy is withdrawn and doesn’t show much interest in school. He doesn’t have many friends and he sometimes sleeps in class.”

By now, she was ashamed of herself. She felt even worse when her students brought her Christmas presents, wrapped in beautiful ribbons and bright paper, except for Teddy’s. His present was clumsily wrapped in heavy, brown paper that he got from a grocery bag. Mrs. Thompson took pains to open it in the middle of the other presents. Some children started to laugh when there was a rhinestone bracelet with some of the stones missing, and a bottle that was one-quarter full of perfume. But she stifled the children’s laughter when she exclaimed how pretty the bracelet was, putting it on, and dabbing some of the perfume on her wrist.

Teddy stayed after school that day just long enough to say, “Mrs. Thompson, today you smelled just like my Mom used to.”

After the children left, she cried for at least an hour. That very day, she quit teaching reading, writing and arithmetic. Instead, she began to teach children.

Mrs. Thompson paid attention to Teddy. As she worked with him, his mind came alive. The more she encouraged him, the faster he responded. By the end of the year, Teddy became one of the smartest children in the class and, Teddy became one of her “teacher’s pets…”

A year later, she found a note under her door, from Teddy, telling her that she was the best teacher he ever had in his whole life.

Six years went by before she got another note from Teddy. He then wrote that he had finished high school, third in his class, and she was still the best teacher he ever had in life.

Four years and she got another letter, saying that he’d stayed in school, had stuck with it, and would soon graduate from college with high honors. He assured Mrs. Thompson that she was still the best.

Four more years and another letter came. This time he explained that after his bachelor’s degree, he decided to go further. And, that she was still the best and favorite teacher he ever had. The letter was signed, Theodore F. Stoddard, MD.

That spring, there was another letter. Teddy had met a wonderful girl and was getting married. He explained his father had died and wondered if Mrs. Thompson might agree to sit in the place usually reserved for the mother of the groom. Of course, she did. And she wore the bracelet, with several rhinestones missing. Moreover, she made sure she wore the perfume that Teddy remembered his mother wearing on their last Christmas together.

They hugged each other, and Dr. Stoddard whispered in her ear, “Thank you for believing in me and making me feel important.”

Mrs. Thompson, with tears in her eyes said, “Teddy, you have it all wrong. You were the one who taught me that I could make a difference. I didn’t know how to teach until I met you.”

(For you that don’t know, Teddy Stoddard is the doctor at Iowa Methodist in Des Moines that has the Stoddard Cancer Wing.) Warm someone’s heart today…pass this along. I love this story so very much, I cry every time I read it. You can make a difference in someone’s life today! Just “do it.”
