Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 10/11/18

Have you ever spent time pondering what you would love?  Being a Spiritual Midwife and Mindfulness Coach, I spend an enormous amount of my time listening to people’s dreams and holding them in my hands and my heart until the person(s) who is sitting before me is ready to birth them.  You ask how long does that take – it takes as long as it takes.  Most of the time that is because the person(s) I am listening to gets stuck in one place and that one place 99% of the time is “HOW?” 

If you have known me for any length of time, you have heard me say “the how is none of your business.”  That very statement causes uncomfortable moments for many of us.  So the other question I would ask is “Why is it that I need to know how, when, and where my dream will be born?”  I have birthed two children into this world and what I will say is that even with all the planning and the Lamaze Classes things still did not go exactly the way I had assumed or attempted to create in my mind and the love that was in the room when the birth occurred was overwhelming.  The other thing I will say is that birthing two children into this amazing world we live in is still two of the creations that I am most proud of, even though I was not able to control all of the ‘how’s’.  

The process of birthing a dream is totally a trust walk.  Peter Block, an organizational coach and community builder, has a quote that I will share with you.  This quote comes from a book entitled The Answer is Yes:  “There is a depth in the question, ‘How do I do this?,’ that is worth exploring.  The question is a defense against the action.  It is a leap past the question of purpose, past the question of intentions, and past the drama of responsibility.  The question ‘How?’ – more than any other question – looks for the answer outside of us.  It is an indirection expression of our doubt.”  Peter Block  (We will be unpacking this quote on Sunday morning.)

With all the separation and conflict in our world today it is time to stop pushing against and to begin the process of birthing something brand new.  The main issue is most of us don’t know how so we stop dead in our tracks.  Join us this Sunday as we begin the deeper look of Calling the Circle.  Yes everyone is Invited to join but only the brave will show up. The invitation to the circle will come in three questions – the first is:  What would you love?   Our own Suzie Wright will be sharing special music.   See you on Sunday. 

Light of the world – Shine on me – Love is the AnswerRev. Denise



Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 10/04/18

Unity of Music City is ‘Calling the Circle’ and everyone is invited and welcome.  A circle is not just a meeting with chairs rearranged.  A circle is a way of doing things differently than we have been accustomed to.  A circle is a return to the original form of community seated around a fire.  

Native persons came into circle because the fire led them there.  They might have been struggling to stay warm or attempting to stay safe.  The circle allowed each person to face the fire and to take their place in the developing community – a way to become part of something bigger than themselves. 

We at Unity of Music City may not be sitting around a fire pit, although that sounds like a great idea for a bit later – (another love the land experience).  We are communing around a fire of passion for this amazing community, the passion of remembering our oneness.  There may be those of us that are struggling to stay safe and warm, there may be those of us that need to be heard, there may be those of us that are learning to label and express our emotions, there may be those of us who are beginning to step into our gift and strengths.  And, ALL are welcome in the circle. 

Join us this Sunday as we begin to discuss what it means to become a part of the circle of Unity of Music City.  We will be joined by Rev. Becky Whitehead, Rev. Jamie Sanders and Rev. Denise as we Celebrate Unity. Let’s take a look at what is really going on in our world today and look at the fact that “We are the ones that we have been waiting for.” 

Celebrating all we are becoming today,Rev. Denise
