JANUARY 2019: The Bigger Yes



“After the final no there comes a yes. And on that yes the future world depends. No was the night. Yes is this present sun.” ― Wallace Stevens

We often differentiate between "those who are on a spiritual path" and those who are not. The truth is that we are all walking this earth together and integrating the seen with the unseen worlds, learning and remembering how to be truly human, which is actually both spiritual and physical, whether we think we are on a spiritual path, or not. Challenges come to us all to integrate, either way.  It has been quite the journey for us all, whatever stage of the cycle we are experiencing. The difference here, is that when we are CONSCIOUSLY on a path of spiritual remembrance, we are actively and with intention invoking our own ability to recall things about ourselves, humanity and this creation that will unlock new vistas and unexplored, surprising aspects of our being that can unfold and create new dimensions of love and joy in our life... and allow us to evolve through the awareness of love.

"The more you are motivated by love, the more fearless and free your actions will be."  - Dali Lama

Those who have remembered and recalled more of the true nature of being human, will be asked to assist and be of service to those who are still awakening. Many lightworkers are now going to be asked to become loveworker, too. For no longer is it just about revealing light or truth to the world for the sake of anything other than to bring greater, deeper, more profound expressions of love to this planet. Yet, those who remember are challenged to provide support while still allowing others to experience and bring forth their own light, through the processes and experiences of their own life and the power of their inner wisdom. That is what keeps it all real and that is what brings love to the light... and heaven to earth.

Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does." - William James

Remembering our interconnectedness can't just happen when we are all getting along. Yet, it is true that we can break the circle of love and short-circuit our ability or desire to feel connected. That is very real. The way of the loveworker is to wield the Truth upon the Self, first and foremost. And first healing and holding the space for love to reveal itself within us.  Always asking, where is the love in this person, situation or experience. Where is love being blocked? How can we let more love in? Where is the love right now, without changing anything at all in this moment? This opens the way to unconditional love.

"Life shrinks or expands according to one's level of courage." - Unkown

Unconditional Love, or Agape, is an actual spiritual substance. Many have only experienced it in consciousness fleetingly... but it is available freely and without question.... however, we must have the eyes to see it, the ears to hear it and the heart to channel it. Because true love is far from just being a feeling. In fact, we can truly love someone and not even like them very much or have difficulty being around them. This is a call for greater unconditional love to the self, as well as an opportunity to hollow a deeper channel for love. For we can only hold as much unconditional love for others as we can hold for ourselves! In holding space for the unloveable in others, we learn to love ourselves and vice versa.

'Even if you abandon one idea for another one, saying yes allows you to move forward.' - Tina Fey

The new earth and the new age ushers in a time of the restoration of the soul, the magnetic feminine aspect of ourselves, that passionate synergy that unexplainably arises as a result of our appreciation of something or someone, as well as the electrical masculine which protects the sacred space. The ultimate union of love and light occurs when we remember our own divinity and we come together as kings and queens, royal servants of this creation. It is in this state of grace that we can create unimaginably, subtle, yet deeply profound inventions of love that bring magic, mystery, joy and abundance to every living thing in the universe. This is how we say Yes to the bigger picture, the journey of the divinity of humanity.

“I imagine that yes is the only living thing.” ― E.E. Cummings

DECEMBER 2018: The Power of Optimism


“What is hope but a feeling of optimism, a thought that says things will improve, it won’t always be bleak, and there’s a way to rise above the present circumstances.” ―Wayne W. Dyer

There is no doubt that doing the shadow work to uncover unclaimed, unknown and hidden belief systems, troubles and traumas is beneficial. But in every earnest seekers life comes the moment where they have begun to also discover their latent gifts and talents. They have found some of that light from within. For it is through the excavation of the deep recesses of our soul that we can bring forth our miraculous true nature.

Now, things start to get exciting. Maybe, just maybe they start to believe that they can create a better life, a new way. Hope springs from that very light from within, and slowly but surely the power of optimism begins to light up our life as we start to become fully aware that it is up to us to create the world we want to live in, and leave to our children.

As we begin to take personal responsibility we begin to take back our power, leaving the victim behind, and changing our attitude from one of entitlement and waiting for others to make things better, to one of empowerment, excitement and creativity. This feels more like it. When we get in flow with our soul, we no longer  scatter our energy. We find something important, something that really feels right and good for one and all.

For many of us this is the first time in our lives that we feel that what we do is enough. This leads us into the state of grace that gives us limitless supply of all things needful, both spiritual and material. We no longer feel like a leaf in the wind, we no longer think that our physical existence is soulless and we start to live life with a smile and in joy.

“Optimism refuses to believe that the road ends without options.” ―Robert H. Schuller

NOVEMBER 2018: Soul Friends & Spiritual Partnership

“When love awakens in your life, in the night of your heart, it is like the dawn breaking within you. Where before there was anonymity, now there is intimacy; where before there was fear, now there is courage; where before in your life there was awkwardness, now there is a rhythm of grace and gracefulness; where before you used to be jagged, now you are elegant and in rhythm with your self. When love awakens in your life, it is like a rebirth, a new beginning.” ― John O'Donohue

We are so driven to re-unify our collective soul here on earth and to take up form that we have endured billions of years of evolution to do so. That we stand on the brink of being able to make the final walk over the abyss of our lower levels of consciousness and step fully into free will brings us to the altar of a kind of gratitude that defies gravity. It is in this space that we defy gravity for in that defiance, we remember our God selves, and never find it sweeter to be able to stand here and now upon this holy, sacred ground.

To stand on the shoulders of all that has come before and grab the golden ring requires us to take the great sacrifices of our ancestors and go for it. But we must never think that we do this just for ourselves alone. The truth be told, if we think that, then we are not totally in free will, yet. For free will understands that all that has come before is a part of us, as well as those who stand now who are not yet awake. For as we re-enter the garden as mature, free-willed, self-realized creator gods and goddesses, we are making the winning touchdown for the whole of creation.

“Once the soul awakens, the search begins and you can never go back. From then on, you are inflamed with a special longing that will never again let you linger in the lowlands of complacency and partial fulfillment. The eternal makes you urgent. You are loath to let compromise or the threat of danger hold you back from striving toward the summit of fulfillment.” ― John O'Donohue

Now entering the garden sounds fine and romantic. For sure it is, but not in the ways that we might think. Most of all, what it represents is our ability to live with each other, with other creator gods who have gone all the way within their own spirit, feel the strength of their own sphere of influence, touched their own divinity, and forged the will to love and live in peace with their kin. It could be said that there is no greater bliss than to meet your true kin. Kindred Spirits are not just your family, but are the people, animals, and places that speak to your heart, in such a way as to help you remember all that you have been, all that you are... and hints at what is to come.

“Real friendship or love is not manufactured or achieved by an act of will or intention. Friendship is always an act of recognition.” ― John O'Donohue

The soul group is the final stage to the reunification of God/dess in the flesh. This is not something that can be spoken of, nor understood in a logical way. For when you begin to come together with your soul group, you are moving out of the path of suffering and into deeper aspects of yourself, the parts of you that are longing for a higher vibration so that the anguish of the separated self can be relieved of it's cosmic loneliness. Yet, it is not just a mental loneliness, or even sheerly emotional. It is intuitive and knowing that exceeds the physical senses. It is complete empathy, synthesis and cooperation for the glory of God... the glory of the people and this creation. For the Gift of this Earthwalk, the Gift of God is our Free Will... and the Gift of Free Will gives us the one thing of the great work; the freedom to Love.

“One of the tasks of true friendship is to listen compassionately and creatively to the hidden silences. Often secrets are not revealed in words, they lie concealed in the silence between the words or in the depth of what is unsayable between two people.” ― John O'Donohue

Your only question here today is, Where am I not free to love? In a nation of gods in the making who were bound to experience the pillars of severity and mercy, science and art, yes's ad no's, right and wrong, good and bad, hot and cold, hard and soft, joy and sorrow.. will you come to understand your true nature, realize that you are at the top of the tree and that it is finally time to decide... Do you choose the middle path? Do you need the rod and the staff to prod you along? And if so, how hard do you want to be whacked with the stick? Or are you ready to listen to gentle voice of the beautiful mother within? Your own soul's whisperings that all beauty, joy, creativity, splendor and bliss is available to you here and now?

“Your noble friend will not accept pretension but will gently and very firmly confront you with your own blindness. Such friendship is creative and critical; it is willing to negotiate awkward and uneven territories of contradiction and woundedness.” ― John O'Donohue

The choice is not yours, until you say so. You are not wrong. Thy will be done. So it is up to you to decide your world's fate. How do you choose to be in the world? Don't choose love and then continue to suffer. Realize that you need to go to the root of the cause and get right with the choice to choose. If you believe in free will, then you can open the doors to a whole new world. If you do not, then knowing this is a point of power. These are not simple choices. Your entire life experience is designed to help you remember who you are. Keep listening, allow yourself to experience the proof of life. One day you will decide to choose another way. In that moment your gratitude will come into its fullest measure of abundance within you. That is the day when you are truly abundance, for that is the day that you are fully free to love.

"An invisible thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break. May you be open to each thread that comes into your life, the golden ones and the course ones, and may you weaves them into a brilliant and beautiful life." - Chinese Proverb

The gift can be anything that has meaning to you, including feathers, stones, figurines or sacred objects. In order to honor the energy it should be something that you love and not a cast off item.

The potlatch is a festival or ceremony practiced among Indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest most prominently. At these gatherings a family or leader hosts guests in their family's house and hold a feast for their guests. The main purpose of the potlatch is the re-distribution and reciprocity of wealth.

OCTOBER 2018: Building the Temple

There is but one temple in the universe, and that is the body of man. ~ Novalis

The notion that the human body is a temple is certainly not a new idea. But what does this truly mean? At first blush it appears to be a religious statement, as many become exposed to this teaching through Bible scripture or through eastern traditions such as, Yoga. To some it seems to be a reminder to eat better, exercise and take better care of the physical needs of the body. But, this great truth is not simply referring to the flesh of the body, nor only the spirit. Truly it is calling us to acknowledge our whole being. For wholeness is holiness. We might say that the recognition of wholeness is the blueprint for the building of the temple.

The quest for wholeness brings the impetus and the urge for us to get to know all the aspects of the Self, which include body, mind, heart, soul and spirit, as well as community and environment. More and more people are coming to understand that what we can interpret with our physical senses and our conscious intelligence is not the only intelligence and energies at work in the universe. But as we fast lose our death grip on this 3D reality, we need to continue to develop our intuitive abilities and our spiritual senses to better interpret the energies around and within us. This is one of the reasons why it is so important to get very clear emotionally, so that we can interpret our experiences with purity and not through the darkened lens of a fear of  the unseen, unknown or unusual.

If we do not allow ourselves to learn how to read energy in a non-judgmental way we will find ourselves lost in a world of fear, superstition and misinformation. We do not want to burn the witch within. For certainly within each of us there is a master magician and physician, who will benefit greatly by understanding how to better work with and manage energy.

Not additionally, but perhaps more importantly it is important to develop our intuition so that we can connect with our soul and our body. Psychism isn't just for foretelling the future... the depth of second listening and second sight can reveal spiritual messages and clues, and subtle cues from the body that can make all the difference in healing, creativity and empowerment.

During the month of October we will be increasing our understanding of energy. We will be raising and resetting our vibration, discovering areas that need vibrational re-attunements, learning about how to read and shift the energies surrounding people, places and things, including ourselves and opening to new levels of manifestation. Everything is energy and as such, we invoke the power of change right from within.

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? Corinthians 3:16

The full understanding of the body as a temple is to realize that the true temple is the body of humanity as a whole. It is in this way that we are all temple builders. As we see our own individual bodies as a temple, we begin to vibrate accordingly and are moved into proximity of other people, places and things that are ready to be a part of the Holy Temple of Humanity. It is true that this process starts with each of us individually, and is carried forward by our understanding that we are all a sovereign part of something greater than any one of us alone. The soul awaits our humanity to reunify in God Consciousness, the knowledge of the Collective Soul.

TEMPLE INVOCATION
Mighty I AM Presence within me. Let your energy flow through my body, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual to manifest the perfection now, I ask and command that this appeal is approved in perfect and divine time, show me the path to ascension, inspire me to live through the Heart, fan the fires of my Threefold Flame upon the Altar of my Heart. I will to will Thy Will. Let it be so. So it is. And so it shall be. OM.

SEPTEMBER 2018: The Art of Prayer


“Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul.”  ― Mahatma Gandhi

The power of prayer and intention in our lives is all important to the realization of our free will and to the creation of a life of our choosing. Prayer is the voice that we give to our choices as we petition the higher powers that be for the love, support, protection and supply that are not only necessary to our physical survival, but also our spiritual evolution. For in the asking, we come to realize that all is given, especially when we embrace the shamanic nature of our being and become the tracker into our lives. As we open up our narrow view of prayer and intention, the act of choosing and communicating with the Universe can become far more beautiful in and of itself, as the very way that we commune becomes a sacred art.

“You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might pray also in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance.” ― Kahlil Gibran

Prayer takes many shapes and forms, far beyond what comes to mind for many. There is much more to prayer to peoples around the world than to simply get down on your knees and speak out with your voice. Though this is quite beautiful and powerful in its own right, if we take a look at the way that others pray and make intention, we find that it is truly something of a divine art form. From the South American Despacho, to the Japanese Shinto, stone circles like Stonehenge or Newgrange, Dagara diviners, to the Kalachakra Mandala, Yantras and Mantras, Medicine Wheels of every culture and land, Christian sacraments, to Malas, Rosaries, Medicine Bags and Bundles, to Spirit Ties, and all the ceremonies, rites and rituals, the art of prayer is a deeply ingrained part of our world as we seek communion with something greater.

"It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.” - Mahatma Gandhi

When we gather in community on the medicine wheel we have milestones and markers, which allow us to not only see the signs and experience the synchronicities, but to better interpret them, offering us a way to ground, anchor and integrate the knowledge, or to simply have more patience as we build our own faith in the process of unfolding. With these spiritual eyes on the shamanic path we can see the often subtle responses to our prayers that will better allow the omnipotent forces that we have invoked to do their magic. And we can also better hear the instructions of our soul which can guide our actions and decisions. Through the signs and symbols of our lives we can enter into a real conversation with the Great Mystery, and actually experience a two way dialogue as we engage in conscious contact.

“The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.” ― Søren Kierkegaard

We came here to create. We are creators, or more aptly put, co-creators. First through the protection of our ego we acted out our lives and created in unconscious ritual. As we learned more about who and what we truly are, we no longer act out only symbolically, but with reverence and respect as we create a new earth reality by taking these same rituals and framing and containing them in the story of our life under the protection of sacred ceremony... consciously and with positive intent.

“Let your intentions be good - embodied in good thoughts, cheerful words, and unselfish deeds - and the world will be to you a bright and happy place in which to work and play and serve” - Grenville Kleiser

In our unawakened state we may have found ourselves relying a great deal on our own steam and forgetting to pray. Or we may have prayed, but only at times of sorrow, angst or fear. Most of us were plenty good at forming an intention, but painfully shy of releasing it to the Universe, which is actually what makes an intention, a prayer. Ultimately we want to integrate prayer and intention and weave a practice of ritual and ceremony into our lives that allows us to dance our prayers, sing our prayers, cook, clean and garden our prayers... create art, or sit in silence and be one with our intentions, certain of the soul's purpose and the desires of our heart, so that the very actions of our life take on new meaning under this high guidance.

“I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be.”  - Douglas Adams

It's been a challenging journey, as we've experienced the knowledge of good and evil, duality and the polarizations of right and wrong doing. Now, unlike ever before, we have the opportunity to come to the center of our Self, the altar of our soul and pray in ways that make our whole life a sacred ceremony. When we pray we are speaking to the Divine, but when we wrap our prayers in ritual and ceremony, we are speaking directly and intimately to the divinity within our own being. We are speaking to our own soul and acknowledging that God comes through the people, the earth and that we are a great mystery. And as we leave room, the magic of the universe begins to respond back in spite of its mysterious nature, we can communicate meaningfully because we have framed and contained our desires in sacred space and surrendered them in complete faith.

“I am realistic – I expect miracles.”  ― Wayne W. Dyer

Make an intention to be listening with humility and awareness to the whispering of your soul. Then give a voice to it...spoken and written. Place it within the safe space of sacred ceremony, enlivened with symbology, imagery, music... dance, drum and sweat your prayers... Annointed with precious oils... Activated with spiritual guides and angels... Taken into the silence of the void of your being. Align the Wills, then surrender fully to your soul, and to the Great Mystery. Watch and wait with calm certainty that the circumstances, the synergy and the guidance for right action will come and ultimately create something through this kind of surrender that far exceeds any meager wish that we can come up with on our own. Engage the Art of Prayer, for this is the true power of awareness, intention and surrender to something greater.

“Heaven on Earth is a choice you must make, not a place you must find.” ― Wayne W. Dyer

Chandelier Soul Star Fundraiser 2018

CoSL Chandelier Soul Star Project

We are so excited to announce that Church of Spiritual Light is getting lit up! We are approaching our 11th year and that makes it only fitting that we  have finally been given the green light to Let There Be Light.

This is no ordinary remodeling project. What we are experiencing is a true measure of something that we've been quietly and patiently working with for so many years... the illumination of our Collective Soul. For years we reached down in the depth of our being, into the void, the Great Mystery of our own souls, and found the light within. It's just that simple. And it's time to reveal this beautiful light for all to see.

So we have been guided to create and bring this beautiful chandelier, that you could say is a depiction of our Soul Star, the beautiful Blue Star that shines over our heads to life in our sanctuary at Church of  Spiritual Light. These are some renderings of the chandelier, which we have chosen that best represents where we are at this time.

It has also been given to us that this should be a community project and that our community should have their energy as a part of it. The labor to install the chandelier is being donated, however, we are doing a fundraiser to actually pay for the chandelier itself. As always, many hands make light work. So no donation is too small. We are seeking to raise approximately $500.

If you feel so called, please use the donate button below, or you may send a check made out to:
Church of Spiritual Light (marked Chandelier Fundraiser)
1939 Park Meadows Dr. #1, Ft. Myers, FL 33907

Please donate to our fund. Any amount is helpful and appreciated.



Below are some additional renderings of the chandelier.
