Our Vision:
 
We see a world powerfully transformed through the growing movement of shared spiritual awakening. 
 
June Power is:
  Imagination
     
Power: The ability to envision, conceptualize, dream.     
Affirmation:  I envision good unfolding in every area of my life.   

The Daily Word and Unity Magazines are now available for May
 
 
Inside Daily Word® Magazine.   Since its inception in 1924, Daily Word has provided people of all faiths with positive words of truth and inspiration. Each magazine includes two months of daily affirmative messages, feature articles and spiritual poetry Affirmations are positive statements of Truth.  By affirming Truth we are lifted out of false thinking into the consciousness of Spirit.  Each time we pray positively and faithfully, we are calling forth the divine activity that is always within us.

Unity Founders: Charles and Myrtle Fillmore:
"God is the one perfect life flowing through us. God is the one pure substance out of which our organism is formed. God is the only reality of us; all else is but a shadow that is cast by some foolish belief or unwise combination of thoughts and the elements of being. When we let light flood us with its sunshine, all clouds vanish and we begin to see ourselves in n ew ways of doin g, whic h lead to wholeness and health and satisfaction and grow th." Myrtle Fillmore ( 1895)

Join us for an evening of messages from those who have passed over with Debra, back by popular demand.
I would like to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Debra. I am an Intuitive Clairvoyant Empathic Medium. I have the gift of understanding or knowing information without the aid of any direct evidence or reasoning. With the ability of seeing objects or actions beyond the range of natural vision, I have the ability to share information and pass on messages from the other side to those in the here and now.
My mission is to receive messages from loved ones (spirit) who have passed over and to give those messages to those who are in need of a kind word, a message or closure.
My primary goal is to help people. I want my clients to understand and accept the existence of the afterlife. Clients will come to appreciate their loved ones are by their side; helping, encouraging, and guiding them.
I wish to bring inner peace to clients I read by giving them messages from Spirit. I look forward to working with you to help improve the lives of many, bringing inner peace to all I read by connecting you with Spirit."

Kahi Loa, also known as Magic Touch Massage, is a Hawaiian Shamanic Healing modality that taps into the elements of nature to catalyze healing and it refers to a state of Unity with Life in its entirety.
7 lucky people will get to experience one of the elements.
