An Excellent Ministerial Credentialing Program

February 22, 2013

Many of our ministers have been asking the question, “How do I develop a Ministerial Credentialing Program that I am comfortable teaching?” Most of our ministers have specific spiritual, gifts and beliefs that are personal to their spiritual path. They want to share these with others and allow and facilitate their students who feel called to service as a Licentiate Minister, Healer Practitioner or Ordained Minister to do so.

As you know UCM has two paths to the ministry, Credentialed Ministerial Programs taught by sponsoring ministers and a Graduate and Undergraduate Accredited Theology Degree Program for students who wish a more academic structure. We affirm that there is no set path to the Divine and we honor all Paths to Divinity.

I began work with Reverend Doti Boon in 2010 to help her develop a Ministerial Credentialing Program that fit her spiritual gifts, talents and interest. Reverend Doti, I am happy to say has been sponsoring ministers since that time.

She and her partner Reverend Corky Whitacre offer a wonderful Credentialing Program. She has expanded on the original format to include guest speakers from many spiritual disciplines, in my mind fulfilling the promise of a multi-faith church model that UCM embraces.

Think about your spiritual path and practice and realize that we are here to help you. Working cooperatively excellent Credentialing Programs are being developed and you can be apart of the process.

Do you have problems with abundance, job security, money situations? Past Lives can cause obsessions, jealousies, phobias and even addictions. Through exploration of your past lives you can bring enjoyment into the present by unlocking those doors to the recesses of your inner mind.

Rev. Doti will show you how your past lives have come through into the now and reflected themselves. Ever “remembered” the smell of the ocean even though you had never been there? Had a remarkable talent for singing, painting or writing without a single class? You could have been a famous artist or opera singer in a past life.

Please wear loose-fitting clothes as some of the session will be on blankets and pillows on the floor or in a chair if that is more comfortable.

In the process of working with others, we are integrally connected to many energetic fields. Negativity in any form can be damaging to the human energy field (aura). Fear, anger, depression, negative people/places, arguments and more actually create negative energy that can cling to you or build up in your home and cause problems over time. Sometimes it is necessary to protect ourselves. Spiritual Protection is something that everyone should and can know how to do.

Month 9September 2013

Thurs. Sept. 5th Soul Mates Rev. Doti Boon

A “soul mate,” is someone with whom you have shared many loving past life experiences. If we look at all the people we’ve found and loved in this lifetime alone, it becomes clear that we are not limited to just one “soul mate” for all eternity, or even for one lifetime. How can you tell the difference between an ordinary past life connection and a “soul mate?” And, where do you find this person? Do we create them, or FIND Them?

Thurs. Sept. 19th Aloha Spirit Rev. Doti Boon

The Aloha Spirit is a well-known reference to the attitude of friendly acceptance for which the Hawaiian Islands are so famous. This evening you will learn how to use this powerful energy to resolve any problem, accomplish any goal, and achieve any state of mind or body that you desire.

Breakthrough results are often reported, even for those who simply join and hold the space for those in the circle.

Month 10October 2013

Thurs. Oct. 3rd Automatic Writing Rev. Doti Boon

Automatic Handwriting is a basic tool used for channeling. By holding a pen to a piece of paper and allowing the energy to flow through the channel’s hand, the result is communication from an entity, in written form. It is a great way to experience channeling in a tangible form, which makes it easily identifiable. Some folks need proof that it is in fact possible to communicate with unseen realms.

Automatic “spirit” or “inspirational” writing is not the total releasing of the conscious mind; it is the setting aside at least temporarily, so that a Spirit may manifest through us and become as it were, our ‘Guiding Hand’. A hand that must be connected to the mind in order to answer questions, create inspirational pieces, or writings that talk of love, light, truth or wisdom.

Thurs. Oct. 17th Pendulum, Scrying, Séance and other ol time spiritualist stuff

Rev. Doti Boon

The pendulum is basically an amplifier. It is a tool that helps you to access the, your sub-conscious, the collective unconscious and your Higher Self. You can get answers to anything you can come up with.

Learning to work with a pendulum it is like learning to play an instrument. It requires constant practice and experimentation. Making mistakes is part of the learning process. The result you get does not reflect your stage of spiritual/mental development. For many, the pendulum just isn’t their tool.

However, if it is – it can be used in so many ways – not just water dowsing, map reading, relationship standings, etc.

Ever been in a Séance: Last year when we were teaching this class – we brought in the spirit of Mother Theresa. we were extremely surprised at how “earthy” she was. It was exciting and for some a bit scary

Just in time for Halloween! Learning how to “read a crystal” which is actually called “scrying”. In this class you will learn how to convince the subconscious mind that you want to use scrying techniques to see into other realms. Join Doti this evening as she teaches you how to attain a state of altered awareness; allowing you to see pictures or even visions through scrying. This may be accomplished through ritual or meditation. Bring a large clear crystal if you have one. Or, you can use a glass of water.

Sat. Oct. 26th How to Prep for Ceremony Rev. Doti Boon

Rev Sandy Clark Final 8 14 2012

It’s February, Love is in the air! Memories of February always bring out the kid in me. I was at the store the other day and walked by all the Valentine’s Day cards, some of them have become quite fancy. I was drawn to the small packet of heart shaped cards for kids. It reminded me of the cards we used to make to give to our friends with one line sayings along with the conversation heart candy.

In my head I am a young school girl again, with no particular cares in the world, and it is almost Valentine’s Day. However in reality, now I am sitting at my desk here at the office; having awoken to the news of a killer on the loose in Southern California, the murder of a number of people from a drug deal that went wrong, almost being hit by a car on the freeway coming to work, and the list goes go on and on. Personally, I liked being a school girl, excited for Valentine’s Day, rather than dealing with the fear and anger of what appears to be going on in the world today.

I remember why I am here; I came to bring Light and Love, and I can do that. It happens every time my heart beats; a spark of that Love and Light that each of us carries in our hearts, goes out and brings Light and Love to the World. I can add to that spark with my meditations and my everyday thoughts and I can see and feel the Light get stronger, and the Love replacing fear.

You know how when you are around some people, they charge you up with their energy and commitment, well when I think of Valentine’s Day, it is one way for me to recharge my heart with Light and Love in order for me to complete the work I came to do.

May each of you remember why you are here. Have a Wonderful Valentine’s Day.

With Light and Love,


The “Secret” to Manifestingby Rev. Suzanne M. AngeliRev Suzanne Angeli Jan 2013

I’m sure by now everyone has heard of the book and the movie “THE SECRET”, about how you can manifest anything you want in your life. I read the book and saw the movie when it came out in 2006, and gave manifesting a try. Sadly, I did not achieve the results it promised, so I disregarded it as just another one of those books geared to sell copies and make money.

However, after years of working to better myself, I came to understand more of what was needed in order to truly manifest what I wanted in my life. It wasn’t just about visualizing and wishing for what I wanted to manifest, but actually believing and feeling worthyof manifesting what I wanted. And all this stems from the mind.

Our brain consists of the conscious and the subconscious mind. The conscious mind is our day to day reasoning mind and our subconscious is our inner tape recorder. It records all thoughts, feelings and experiences of life. Interesting to note our subconscious mind is running our day 90-95% of the time, which means we are basically living on auto pilot. This way frees up the conscious mind from having to relearn the things we do habitually; driving the car, brushing our teeth, etc.

Generally, up to the age of 6, the mind is structured to taking in information and storing it. This is the predominant brainwave pattern during this developmental stage. Without even realizing it, negative things said by others are recorded in the subconscious mind. Hearing or feeling things like; you are not good enough, life is hard, you are undeserving, etc., can begin to create a negative belief system within yourself.

Knowing this, it stands to reason that you can affirm and visualize and wish consciously all you want, but if you truly believe deep down inside at the subconscious level, that you are not deserving or worthy of what you want, it will not happen. The two minds are not in agreement and the subconscious will prevail.

So how do we change our negative subconscious thoughts? Since the subconscious mind is a tape recorder, we have to record over the negatives with positives. EFT tapping and brainwave entrainment can be very helpful.

EFT tapping utilizes one of the body’s energy systems. The meridian system was discovered by the Chinese many, many years ago and is the system also utilized during acupuncture or acupressure. By lightly tapping with the finger tips on certain meridian points around the head and neck, while bringing to mind a negative thought, feeling or memory, we are able to release it. Then we can record a positive thought, using affirmations, to start establishing or creating a positive belief system in the subconscious mind.

Brainwave entrainment can magnify tapping results. Sounds and music are used to ease the brain into different states of mind. According to Dr. Lee Bartel an expert in the field, “our brainwaves adjust to our sound environment so they vibrate in harmony”. The brainwave types are:

  • Alpha – relaxed state such as in meditation, yoga or tai chi.
  • Theta- deep meditation or in a dreaming or REM state.
  • Delta- dreamless sleep.
  • Beta- alert mind and daily functioning.

By playing music primarily in the alpha or theta range, it puts you in a relaxed or meditative state when the mind is more receptive to incoming messages. So by tapping while playing the music, you create the perfect environment for the new thoughts to be recorded in the subconscious mind.

Lastly, never underestimate the power of gratitude. Be grateful for all that you have and express it daily. Thank the Universe for what it has provided for you; thank the people around you for all that they do. And write it down. Writing or journaling is also beneficial to putting positives into the subconscious mind.

With the use of tapping, brainwave entrainment, positive affirmations, and gratitude, I now had the tools needed to manifest what I wanted in my life. Realize and know that the Universe has an unending supply for each and every one of us. We are all deserving and worthy of the abundance life has to offer. We are only limited by our own thoughts in our own mind.

Rev. Suzanne M. Angeli is a UCM ordained minister and spiritual healer practitioner, a Reiki Master, and has practiced meditation and Kriya yoga for over 10 years. She uses and has taught about tapping, relaxation, meditation, brainwave entrainment and energy balancing. She especially enjoys creating and performing unique wedding ceremonies.

Healing for Children

by Reverend Eve WilsonRev Eve Wilson Oct 2012

Reprinted with permission from Body Mind Spirit Guide Magazine

Children bring us such joy and also present us with some of our deepest challenges. Truly, there is nothing a parent desires more than their child’s happiness, health and success in life and when any of that is missing it breaks our hearts. Taking a spiritual approach to healing a child is a gentle and rapid way to address issues of health and psychology that brings lasting improvement on every level.

When treating a child’s needs through spiritual healing, a skilled intuitive healer can connect telepathically with the child and have a parent on the phone to provide concrete information and feedback. This is much easier for the child than sitting through an appointment in someone’s office. But more importantly, when you talk with someone telepathically you can access higher levels of consciousness where they understand the issues and can clarify them for you. Telepathy allows the healer to work directly with the aspects of the soul that are damaged where and when the wounding occurred.

For instance, where a child has had a bad reaction to an immunization shot, the healer can go to the moment before the injection was given and invite healing of the medicine itself prior to being given and clear negative effects before they occurred. Then they can work with the child’s body, aura and soul to undo the negative effects that they have suffered with a fair degree of ease and speed. I’ve seen fantastic results with this for children who had life-threatening immune system reactions to such shots where the doctors were surprised and thrilled that a child’s recovery took an unexpectedly positive direction after such a healing. Also with children who have had cognitive and personality changes due to immunizations and allergic responses to other medicines I have had wonderful fedback from parents and grandparents who were happy to have their children return to their sweet and intelligent selves following spiritual healing work.

This approach is usually effective for children who have suffered traumas of any kind. For instance in treating emotional trauma due to death in the family, divorce, violence, abuse, abandonment or anything which generates a strong emotion that creates an irresolvable conflict within the child, spiritual healing can give the most complete improvements with the smallest investment. Parents report improvements in areas of self-confidence, motivation and relationships with others on a consistent basis.

There are also situations where a child has contracted for a certain set of limitations and in those instances they may not be resolved immediately, but we can help the child and parents to work successfully with those situations for the greatest ease and good for all involved.

Children are wonderful to work with in this way, because they are usually very open and willing. As with everyone, they have a journey that their life has taken for their soul’s growth and learning and often also for the growth of their parents and family members. So a spiritual healing may also address hereditary issues and the social aspects of their family dynamics. Often these issues can be addressed successfully, bringing a greater sense of peace and unity to the family and freedom and wholeness to the individuals.

Rev. Eve Wilson has been a Healer and trainer of Healers since 1986. Her trainings are available in person in Ann Arbor, MI and by live Skype or phone connection as well. Courses include the Healer Development 101 and The Healer & Ascension Certification Course for UCM Healer Practitioner. She does healing for individuals, couples, children, families, pets and the personal, planetary and cosmic ascension process.

UCM Book of the Month

The Power of Myth

Rev Angela DeBry 2008I am happy to say that thanks to the community outreach being done by UCM Headquarters and our wonderful members we are having new individuals reaching out to UCM for additional information on both the Accredited Degree and Ministerial Credentialing Programs.

As a part of their inquiries I am often asked how the Education Committee choose the books for the Degree Program. The Degree Program was developed from my personal credentialing program. Solar Cross “A New Beginning” was my UCM Charter and it was a California Postsecondary School and Wellness Center as well as a continuing education provider for nurses. The mission statement was to introduce spiritual healing models or complementary modalities to the western healthcare community, to empower those who were ill with additional tools for managing the illness, and to teach my ministerial students that each individual they worked with was a part of the Divine.

Being a minister to me involves service, personal responsibility and creating a sacred space for everyone you work with. It is important to realize carrying the title of Minister or Reverend holds a sacred trust spiritually and legal requirements at the human level.

I wanted to create dialogue and chose to do this by creating a curriculum that combined my ministerial students with nurses and to this mix I added individuals challenged with critical illness. Those who were dealing with illness were offered the program at no charge.

From the astounding dialogue that occurred, the Degree Program was born. It was originally used by Solar Cross “A New Beginning” as a remote credentialing program and later became the Associate and Bachelor Degree for UCM. The intent then and now is to create a personal vision quest for each student via the choice of curriculum and their interaction with degree staff.

UCM is a multi-faith organization and does not mandate a specific path. The degree program allows the student to be introduced to teachings from around our globe. They find what resonates with them and by doing so creates their personal path to the Divine and thus their ministry.

Once a month via the Sacred Times I will introduce you to some of the books that are a part of the degree program. Hopefully as we journey you will find that you might be called to the ministry and whether you choose the Degree or Credentialing Programs we are happy to have you as a part of the UCM family.

The first book in the Associate Program is The Power of Myth, by Joseph Campbell. Joseph Campbell 1904-1987 was, in my opinion, one of the great mythologist, folk and symbolist teachers of our time. His information is still being taught in schools today and I would encourage you to visit his foundation,

This particular book teaches that myth has been used for centuries by humanity to educate, inform, create a cohesive society and show our children and ourselves how to be better humans and members of society. Joseph Campbell, in my opinion, also does a terrific job of showing how cultures who have lost their myths lose their cultural identity and how if this culture does not develop another myth there is a break down of the society. Most of the students are fascinated to learn that George Lucas brought Joseph Campbell to his Skywalker Ranch to learn more about myth and the hero’s journey as he created Star Wars. There are significant archetypes used throughout the Star Wars storyline. I like to think of Lucas as creating, in his own way, a myth for our times.

Part of the Degree Program study of this book is to allow the student to delve into their societal, family and personal myths. We all have them and they define and inform our lives whether we realize it or not. When we understand this, I believe we truly begin our personal vision quest.

Stay tuned for next months book as we review The Once and Future Goddess.

New Blog “Glutenfree Sleuth”

Please check out my new blog where I share my discoveries and stories about my 14 year journey as a gluten intolerant with Celiac Disease. So many of my days have been sabotaged along the way by hidden gluten that I wanted to share my hard won knowledge in the hope that other gluten intolerants could be spared some of the same pain and discomfort.
