Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 06/27/19

Have you ever gone through a drive-through window and after you went through the process of ordering into the system, realized on the other end (or even worse), when you got home, that you did not receive what you ordered?  Where did the communication break down?  Was it with the delivering or the receiving? 

During the month of June we have been focusing on “Summer is a State of Mind”.  To bring another perspective to the conversation Rev. Deborah Bishop will be sharing with us this Sunday morning, “The Universal Drive-Through Window.” 

We humans make decisions, select choices, and speak them into the universe every day.  Each of these choices will bring us closer or move us further away from the purposes we have set for our lives. Am I 100% sure that what I am ordering up from the universe is clear and that when I receive it, I will recognize what I ordered? 

Every choice we make gives us a new opportunity to learn, grow and evolve . . .or stay stagnant, small and stuck.  Every choice we make either opens doors to new possibilities or closes doors that may no longer be an option moving forward.  Some doors that are open usher us into a new way of thinking, acting and behaving.  Some doors that are closed leave us in old belief systems and patterns of living. 

We make hundreds of choices each day and some of them are soo habitual that we may not even be aware that we are making them.  I hope you join the spiritual community of Unity of Music City and Rev. Deborah Bishop as she leads us forward in looking at the daily decisions and choices we are making and how those decisions are moving us closer or further away from the life we want to create. 

Life is a matter of choices and every choice we make shifts the protectory of our lives in one direction or another .  Sometimes it is the smallest of decisions that can change your life forever.

Namaste’

Rev. Denise 



Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 06/20/19

Today is June 20th, 2019. Doesn’t it seem that June just began and here we are close to the end of the month. Time really does seem to fly by. The question I continuously ask myself as a Mindfulness Coach is, “Can I remain mindful (awake) in each and every one of those moments? That is my goal, and I admit, some days are easier than others because of the situations that stand before me.

Sometimes I choose to step out of my body and be the observer so as to not feel the full brunt of a situation. Other times I choose to allow it to flow fully through me. At this point in my life, most of those times are a choice, not something that happens out of habits from my past (although there are moments when I still like to blame my mother, my teachers, etc. . . . for what I seem to find myself in the middle of) In those moments it seems to be done “To Me.”

Our focus for the month of June has been Summer is a State of Mind. We’ve framed that fact through the four elements: Fire, Earth, Water and this Sunday, Air. The discussions around each element has brought us closer to the knowledge that there is a power greater than ourselves that can restore us to sanity. It is our thoughts and beliefs that either have us living life to the fullest or have kept us stuck. Simply from the 12 Step perspective, do I choose sanity or not?

From the moment of our birth into these physical bodies we have breathed in the breath of life. In that very moment we became a living soul, an expression of the divine in human form. The question remains, am I aware of that fact in each and every moment? When I am not aware – what or who helps me to remember? Those are the questions we have been pondering during our Wednesday evening Metaphysics Class.

This Sunday we will be discussing ways to remember that fact. How do I allow the air I breath (Reset Breath) to assist me during those human limitations that I or others may be experiencing? It is then that I am able to touch love, joy or peace for myself or to share with others. That is really my power as a spiritual being having a human experience.

This Sunday I am affirming that the words spoken by myself, by others and the songs sung by our Praise and Worship Team along with the amazing Becky Duffield (you don’t want to miss her songs!!!) will create an opening for deeper knowing. May we as a spiritual community begin to feel it within ourselves – knowing where it comes from.

Love Can Build a Bridge; don’t you think it’s time?
