Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 4/28/2016


Affirm with me:  This is the year my dreams come true!

Henry David Thoreau stated, “If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”

This quote has been an inspiration to Judy and me in stepping forward towards the life we had envisioned over 18 years ago.  In fact, the words are so magical that we have placed a framed picture of the two of us with the quote in its entirety right over our piano.  We see the picture every day, and sometimes several times a day….sort of like a vision board.  However, some days our dream has been overshadowed with life stuff.

Much of the life stuff has been spectacular like family fun, time spent with friends and interesting growing opportunities with jobs and careers.  Some of the life stuff has brought up our fears about our own abilities; a deep look into personal failures that sometimes we use as reasons to not move forward and personal frustrations that every person on this planet deals with at some points in their lives.

What has become exceptionally clear to me over the last two years is that every one of us has the same stuff – and – every one of us has dreams that live inside of us.  These dreams are great passions that were implanted within us at the moment of inception – when we decided we were going to come from the light.  Soooo…….what stops us?  What is it that some people have within them that helps them to step into their dreams and create magical lives?  Are they so different from the rest of us?

My answer is NO!  The difference is in the quote:  Advances Confidently in the direction of…..   It is all about where I keep my focus.  It is about continuing to step forward in confidence.  So I ask myself, “What is my dream?  What do I want to create and how much of my time do I spend thinking those thoughts, versus thinking about other things random things that sometimes flow into my mind?”

Over a year ago, Judy and I decided to take the plunge and travel to LA to a Dream Builder Live event with Mary Mannin Morrissey   I can share with you, I had no idea what was about to happen.  I just knew I had the calling to go.  “Oh My God!”  In a short 52 hours, my life began changing right before my eyes.  What actually happened with Judy and I is that we were immersed into a process with hundreds of people in a huge room.  All the people in the room were vibrating at the same level – all focused on their dreams – all speaking them out – all focusing on the joy, the love, the peace of the dreams.  The room was filled with music, message, meditation, and magic….the Holy 4.  It was infectious – and in a holy instant – we were changed.

This Sunday you will have the experience to step into the energy of the Holy 4 at Unity of Music City.  The Message and Meditation will by my dear friend Felicia Searcy who works closely with Mary Morrissey and coaches persons on the very same process: Dream Big Dream Bold.  Felicia will be speaking at the 11:00  service “You Are Meant for More”.  Just hearing those words is exciting.  Then after our service she will be offering a Dream Builder Workshop to those brave enough to look deeply at where they might be able to tweak a few things and totally change their lives.

Know that Judy and I will be providing the Music; which is part of the reason we were brought together in this life time.  This holy union is much bigger than the two of us and we know we were brought together to get Judy’s music out into the world in a bigger way.  Her music is truly a message that can change the world; look at what We Choose Peace has assisted us in creating this year.

You my dear friends will be a big part of the Holy 4.  I promise An Experience of Authentic Transformation for each of you as you step into the Magic that happens every Sunday at Unity of Music City.

Peace is the Way,
Rev. D

Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 04/21/2016


The way I respond to situations either creates peace or conflict in my life. Human beings respond every moment based on their understanding of how life works.  The Unity Way of Life speaks of using the 12 Powers of Man.  Three of those powers are found in the area of our head; hence we “think” about things before we make decisions.  Those three powers are Faith located in the center of the brain, and Will and Understanding located in the area of the right and left temples.

Over the last two weeks we have focused on the first two and affirmed:

  • Faith

“Belief in my own divinity creates magic in my life.”

  • Will

“Magic happens when I am willing to see this person or situation differently.”

This Sunday we begin to shine the light on our Personal Understanding of how to create a more peaceful life.  Peace comes through creating a spiritual practice and watching our understanding grow.  “Daily Spiritual Practice brings Magic into my Life.”    

A spiritual practice gives us direct access to Universal Mind where we literally open the portal for a personal download from Holy Spirit.  That my friend is the easy way to gain understanding.  The way most of us have used is personal experience which does produce wisdom in the end, but sometimes is the “hard way” of doing life.  As I heard Tina Turner state in a concert years ago, “We’re gonna take the beginning of this song and do it easy, and then we’re gonna do the finish rough.”   Rev. D says, what about doing the entire thing in ease and grace?  Do you believe it is possible?

Some of us met last evening and learned another magical process of grounding to Mother Earth taught by Mary Ann Chambers. We ended the experience by offering prayers of gratitude and adding tobacco and corn meal around our newly planted Peace Pole.  I remind each of you, there is a spiritual practice that will offer you peace and a deeper understanding of life.  All it takes is a bit of faith, willingness, and understanding to go the distance.

Whether this email finds you in a place of peace or a place of questioning why your life is moving in a certain direction, I hope you will take the time to join us on Sunday  morning for a lesson on Peaceful Understanding.  The amazing and passionate Sherrie Phillips will be in the house adding to the Musical Magic of the day.

Peace is the Way,
Rev. D
