This Week's Affirmation
My family is healthy, happy, and full of love!

 
Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer
 

God is the Healing Power

God is the Healing Power and Presence and God is all that is. God is love. I feel the power of Spirit as my Source.  I am aligned with Infinite Mind.

 

The healing power of God is the force that drives my life.  Within Source, I create my own ideas and beliefs about myself, which manifest as my body and my life.  As I set my intention to change what I want changed, I generate the healing I desire.  I call on Spirit within me to guide me to recognize the ideas I want to reset.  I always depend on the perfection of the creative Process to bring wanted change into my life with ease and grace.

 

My life is an expression of the gratitude I constantly feel.  I am grateful for recognizing what I want to change.  I am grateful as I align my beliefs with Source and allow the Creative Process to do Its work.  I release my word to the Law of Love and allow it to be done. And so it is.  Amen

Rev. Maryum Morse

Intuitive Card Reading just for You!
 
I am pulling a card from 
"Archangel Power Tarot Cards"
by Doreen & Radleigh!
 

Seven of Ariel

"You have invested wisely! Have patience and wait for the harvest. Review your progress and make plans for your next endeavor."

 

"Your seeds are well planted! However, some plans do take time to develop. Now is not the moment to stop, as success is very probable! You may not see it clearly, but slow and steady progress is being made. Have patience. It's almost time!

 

This is a good opportunity to pause and review how far you've come. Are things moving along as you'd planned? If not, what changes might you make in the future? If you're at the end of a project, don't linger too long finishing it up. The success awaits your attention.

 

Additional meanings of this card:

A temporary pause; a welcome break in the action; pondering future strategies; determination."

  

JUST A THOUGHT (or two) ABOUT THIS CARD:

What stands out for me with this card is: Temporary pause  and to ponder future strategies.

 

Here's why: 

Right before the harvest, there is stillness.  The plants you toiled over, meticulously cared for from a tiny seed - this is that time of ripening.

 

Oh yes, you could stand over it, fuss with the dirt. You're so very hungry for it, you're salivating in anticipation of your feast.  But like a watched pot never boils, this card is Mama Nature's gentle thump that says "even more patience is called for"  Magnificence takes time to blossom.

 

It takes time to craft, curate and to get that Better Yet to Come to culminate into the splendiferous majesty that you are due.

 

How this works out.  Personally, I've been in such anticipation about being funded for a car purchase - I have not truly taken a beat or two to be in deep gratitude for all the miraculous gifts that  being without a car has brought me.  . 

 

Such as increased health and me being on the receiving end of increased assistance from others.  These are just a few of  the gifts that I've gained from my experience.  Each and everyday, I learn to be in the flow and come to appreciate the fact that I have been mightily and grandly assisted during every single step of the way.

 

So this card showing up means that there are blesssssings coming your way that will knock your socks off.

 

 The other salient point was "ponder future strategies"  

 

This card even gives instructions on how to make your world flow a whole lotta better!  

 

So the dude on the front of the card is holding a staff with what could be a Fluorite or Aquamarine crystal and he's carrying a book called "Flower Therapy"

 

Fluorite is the crystal for increasing ourpowers of concentration, self-confidence and helping us in decision-making.  (DING DING DING!) This is precisely what this pause in the action is about.

 

Think before you leap.

Get your mind right so you can lead with your heart fully engaged.

 

If it's Aquamarine - this is a stone of courage, which also has calming energies to help reduce stress and quiet the mind.

 

So we've got confirmation that now is NOT that time to get all swept up in dramas but a definite time to be kinder, gentler and take it easy for just a cotton-picking minute because the real guidance out of all your stories is to wait, not get all excited and basic.  Your ship is coming in.

 

So you just have  to cruise on the momentum that you have created because of all the work and planning that you've done before.

 

Let's delve into the symbols

Here's why -  

 

"Seven" - is a highly spiritual number that is associated with intuition, mysticism, inner wisdom, and a deep inward knowing.

 

 So sitting in cheerful contemplation of all that has gone before, making those connections, seeing the unifying themes and unraveling the snarls in design.

 

This is the time to assess if you have to make any course corrections.  When 7's arrive, you know that good things are to follow.

 

So not unlike last week, this card evokes the call for more courage and patience

 

The suit of Ariel (which is also stands for the Pentacles in other decks) - Ariel is the Lioness of God - so think about how August is the astrological month that Leo stomps through and you can extrapolate that this means material splendor, comfort, ease and grace is about to unfold here and now betwixt Leo and the Virgin!

Remember last week's card was Strength (the Virginal Goddess soothing the savage beast of a Lion with kindness, love and understanding).

 

 So, hold on Grasshopper, your patience with yourself and with the Infinite shall soon rake up the bitchen rewards

 

Crank up your faith and know, that all that you long for is on its way.

 

So in keeping with the theme of courage and accessing that deep wisdom that lies within the stillness of your heart and soul - there is one bit of advice I make an everyday practice of:

 

"Don't scare the baby"

 

This means that you don't want to mess up the growth that you have nurtured so greatly by filling your mind with notions that cause worry and strife.

 

Courage in this instance means not traversing down those well worn grooves within your mind which predict fearsome consequences. What is the point of doing such things?

 

When have those nightmarish scenarios ever manifested? 

What the seeds you have  planted need to grow is really simple:

 

 - Light

(which is the love that overcomes all darkness, ignorance and despair),

 

Patience

(which is the timelessness of this now moment and the plenitude of acceptance),

 and finally,

the plucking out whatever you don't need in the garden

 ( which means: Kick those nasty thoughts about yourself, your value and worthiness to the curb  so that you can embrace being the beloved of the Divine).

 

Which is why old dude on the front of this card is carrying a book about caring for a beautiful garden.

 

Scaring the baby is not productive towards success when you need all your strength to hold on. 

 

Here is a quote to help illustrate:

 

"Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within."

James Baldwin

 

Here's an affirmation to use to help get in the flow:

 

"I am the epitome of patience. I remain patient in all areas of my life today"

  And so it is.
And So It Is.

Little Foxes

My child, don't give in to disappointment. Some issues are simply beyond your control. However; some come out of unmet expectations and like little foxes, they sneak in before you know it. Be on guard at all times

 

Song of Solomon

2:15.




Your talent is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God."

 

Leo Buscalgia

 

   
 
    
What Brother Ernie said:
 
 

"Brave New World"

  We need to face life in the light of a new truth, a new understanding and a conviction that we are in partnership with the Infinite. Then we may receive direct divine guidance and know how to live as human beings, because we first have discovered that we are divine beings.

 

I am one with the infinite and perfect Spirit, the giver of all good and perfect gifts. I open my mind and my heart and, indeed, my body to the inflow of this divine Presence. I know that this living Presence is in every cell of my body and every function of my being. I accept it as my health of body, here and now. I accept it as that which released me from all that is unlike the perfect expression of life. There is no doubt or fear in my mind that could reject in any way all that God is, right here and right now.

 

My conscious acceptance of the fullness of the presence of God flows out in joy and love to bless those whom I would help, those with whom I would share this inner joy. And I decree that the loved one I now bring into the scope of my thought is blessed and healed through the presence of good that is within.

 

The radiance of joy in my own heart brings happiness into the lives of all those about me. The abundance that prospers me supplies everyone around me with the good things of life.

 

The light that warms the center of my own being so shines forth that all may find guidance and warmth and comfort in its rays. This is the light that lighteth every person that cometh into the world. This is the fount from which spring the living waters. I drink and shall not thirst again. And even as I drink, I hand the chalice of my faith to all.

 

Realizing that we are in the midst of an ever-present good, and believing that there is a law that brings everything of its nature into our lives, we should learn to think and act as though every wrong condition of yesterday were converted into something new and better today.

 

I believe that all the mistakes I have ever made are swallowed up in a love, a peace and a life greater than I am. Therefore, I surrender all past mistakes into the keeping of this every-present and perfect life. I affirm that love is guiding me into a real and deep cooperation with life and a sincere affection for everyone.

 

Today is a fresh beginning, a new start and a joyous adventure on the pathway of eternal progress. Today is bright with hope and happy with fulfillment.

 

Therefore, I affirm that this is the day that God has made, that it is good and that I find fulfillment in it.
