Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 04/23/15


Are you a Survivor or a Creator?  Do you carry the energy of a survivor or a creator; and what does that really mean to you in your life?  Have you ever watched an interview on TV with some business person or celebrity; or read a biography of an accomplished person and wondered “Wow, how did this particular person go from such miserable beginning to becoming such a successful, influential and happy person?”  As I sit and write this email the names, Oprah, Nelson Mandela, Howard Schultz, the Starbucks founder all come to mind.  Each of these individuals started their lives in poverty and became some of the most revered or wealthy individuals on the planet.  Yes – they may have survived lots of things AND at some point they began viewing themselves as Creators, or Manifests. 

A person who stays in the energy of a survivor is always tethered to the experience of surviving.  They always seem to be looking at the circumstances of their lives and attempting to “figure out what to do next.”  They are letting the circumstances or the conditions of life run them and their decisions. Quite interestingly they find themselves over and over again in circumstances or situations to try and solve or figure out.  A Manifest or Creator on the other hand will “come at life” in a very different way.  Their decisions and dreams are about how they are going to do to make life more fulfilling and happy.  They are living from ideas like:  “I’m living in a house by the ocean and as I open my windows I smell the salty air.  I have relationships with people who not only support my dreams but pull my vibrations up higher by inspiring me to move beyond.  I own my own business and assist others to live the life of their dreams which gives me all the time and money I want or desire to travel and experience places and people that I dream of meeting.” 04-26-15

I know that some of you are saying that is a great “DREAM” but what about the reality of the situation?  Some of us are saying…..I’m proud that I have survived all that I have survived and I am very happy with where I am right now thank you! I’m experiencing a Rampage of Appreciation.  I hear you!  And all of that may be true – – AND – – down in the recesses of your being is a place where you and Holy Spirit meet up — Your Sacred Sanctuary.  That place is where the angels and higher beings and ascended Masters connect with you and call you to grow and become and be all that you can be!  Sometimes in the interest of “staying happy – and appreciating – and being grateful for” we forget that we are here to expand and grow and learn and become more and more.  It is the human experience.  And it is just as easy to create positive and loving experiences as it is negative and unloving experiences.  The creative process works all the time for everyone in every circumstance.  We just have to remember:  Greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world!   Or maybe we can remember EXCUSE ME!  I interrupt this broadcast! 

Join me on Sunday when I promise, I will step on some toes…..  This lesson is not just about us individually; it is about us collectively as a Spiritual Community.  What are we creating together…or are we in the Survival mode?  Do we live from week to week…..praying dear God….help us have enough to pay our bills and be what we want to be……AMEN.  Or…..are we dreaming bigger dreams?    Did I peak your interest in any way.  Maybe your personal life vibrates in the same place.  AND…..wouldn’t it be nice to move beyond the Survival Mode?  Wouldn’t it be great to put your attention on creating the next adventure or experience instead of placing your attention on how you will pay bills or survive one more week?  

Remember the Law of Attraction?  Yeah!  It works all the time, every day for every one of us.  AND . . You see I am a child of God and I deserve to have everything I want!     WHAT DO YOU WANT?  SURVIVAL    or    CREATION?       See you Sunday!  I will be joined by Suzie and Dave for some awesome special music.    We are going to stir some Energy!      

Love ya more!     Rev. D

Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 04/16/15


Before Eckhart Tolle wrote A New Earth he put some writing into our world called The Power of Now.  One of the great quotes from that writing is, “Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.”   So here comes the 35,000 foot question, asked by Ryan Gill on Wednesday evening.  How do we dream our dreams and create our future lives and remain in the present moment?  That one question prompted one of the best discussions we have had thus far during our Wednesday evening class, “Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself.”   The only way to ever get to your dream is to live each moment in the present.  And I know – some of you are saying that is so confusing.   

Let me see if I can give a bit of clarity and we will attempt to give more on Sunday morning.  As I dream and vision the life I would love to live, I then begin to trust Holy Spirit to assist me in bridging the gap between today andtomorrow; tomorrow and next week; next week and next month; etc.  The only way I can move along with the flow of Spirit is by being in the present moment.  In each of our lives there are goals set.  The difference in living a quantum life is the trust factor. I match my personal vibration to my dream and then I trust Spirit to do the rest.  Do I trust Holy Spirit to bring it to me in such a way that I will be surprised?  And am I going to be wide awake enough to see each step along the way?  And am I open to the change that each step will bring? 

In A New Earth, Eckhart states, “Always say “yes” to the present moment. What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to what already is? What could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and always now? Surrender to what is. Say “yes” to life — and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.”   So my question for you is this, as you create the vision for your life – are you willing to trust Holy Spirit to lead you?  If you work with the present moment and not against it, believing that you chose this exact moment as a stepping stone toward your next right and perfect experience – you just may begin to experience how life begins to work with you and for you – not against you.  Remember our Purple Bracelets?  Do you still have yours?  I believe there are still some in the work room to be purchased if you need a reminder……  “Spirit is working it out.”
