This week's quote:
""This is the time. This is the place. This is the vastness. Right here is paradise. Always. Always." - Byron Katie
This Week's Affirmation
I have the power to do the most incredible things.

Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer
I Create My Life Deliberately
There is only One Supreme Being. Spirit is the Eternal and Infinite Creator of the Universe. I am One with this Infinite Spirit.
In conscious awareness, and with mental clarity, I know I am one with God. I am a deliberate creator who witnesses life as the example of abundance and wealth, health and joy. I choose to let go of any beliefs, or outer visions of lack and separation. As I picture wealth and health, and peace in my mind I am empowered by a deep emotional conviction that creates my new reality or prototype. This mental model aligns with Divine Energy through me now. I am blessed as Divine Power creates abundant wealth, health and harmony in my world. I am grateful.
Filed with joy I receive this abundant Truth in this moment and give thanks. I release, let go, and let it be. 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!
Six of Raphael
"Embrace your inner child. New friends or rekindled relationships. Children or childhood."
About: "Oh what a lovely memory! Experiences from your distant past or childhood come flooding back in order to help you with the present. Old friends or romantic partners may resurface. New people you meet become instant, close friends due to past-life connections. Previous relationships or friendships may be rekindled.
Deep-rooted issues that hold you back push to be resolved. Be careful not to romanticize the past but rather to see it clearly and objectively."
Additional meaning: Issues involving children. Nostalgia. Embracing your inner child. Innocence.
What stands out for me with this card is "embrace your inner child" and "innocence"
I'mma tell you why:
I believe that there is no coincidence that this childhood card popped up a week after Mother's Day. I believe this card is the flip side of our mastery persona that we examined in the form of the Maternal God Self last week. This card calls for us to access that part of us that is pure, curious and fearless.   Note that I said fearless.
A child prior to learning fear is content and confident in its beingness. Often I flash back to this childhood memory that I honestly, as an adult know that it did not truly happen. (Bear with me) I often recall this vision of me lying on my belly staring at the grass of this wide endless field. When I flip over onto my back, I'm staring up at this wide endless sky. I am happy, I feel free and enveloped in a worry-less, safe and wonderful grace of God. I'm speaking wordlessly to God. I am far from this Earth and even though I don't see another soul around me, I know I am with everything and and everyone.
Now this memory has popped up many times during the course of my life. I thought I had been someplace down the street from my Grandmother's house. But every time I think of this memory, I feel the same peace and ease that I felt that day, undiminished by the passage of time, just as real as my hands and feet.
So this week's theme is about empowerment. I read in ACIM last Wednesday, "Peace is an attribute in you. It is not found outside"
So there in the very roots of our being, there is a peace that is accessible - no matter what happens on the outside now or when you were a child.
The power a child has is its innocence and guess what? That power has never gone away from you and this card is a real reminder of that fact.
Let's talk about the symbols:
This card the Six of Raphael breaks down to this
  • Once again, we have the six. Remember last week that this number circles around harmony and healing, but also about coming HOME to the center of your being where nothing is disturbed, no matter what trial or tribulation you're going through.

  • The suit Raphael corresponds to the Cup suit which represents the emotional world - meaning ability to love and be loved in return, your dreams and your hopes. It concerns your creations like children and connections to people you love.
So how you put all this together:
Return to the state of mind where you did not fear. Call upon your High Holy Innocence within to smooth over all inner turmoil over any past hurts, future worries about love, friendships and partnerships.
Remember that to love is an action we do. Put your best foot forward, as you resolve to bring healing love into every realm of your relationships. By recalling that there is a great and powerful love at the back of all creation, you reconnect to that child self that is content, well-loved and provided for. The healing then can begin because you turn away from crucifying yourself for past actions, decisions and misery and you focus upon what truly matters - trusting in the healing power of love..
If you need healing, be strong in your vulnerability as a child is - but this time you are knowing deep within, that love will fix what ails any situation.
Love doesn't mean that stay in situations that don't honor all parties involved - it means owning your power within enough to walk away from any vibration that doesn't support love. It means being reassured that all your needs are met and that healing only occurs where love is welcome.
It is fully within your power to experience this bliss right where you stand.   Love is the bridge that covers troubled waters and its healing power is always going to result in balance, harmony and lightness of being.
I am sure all of us have a story where we engaged with the Infinite. A childhood memory that is wondrous and magical.
This card is an invitation to allow yourself to remember that memory and in doing so, you have no choice but to remember who you really are - Divine, beloved and pure love.
Here's a quote about returning to innocence::
"Return to the purity of your innocence where you are enchanted with life. Give love for no reason. Surround yourself with others doing the same...."
Miguel Angel Ruiz
Here's an affirmation to use and let the peace from within flow:
"I am not ashamed of what I do, what I have done, nor what I have not done. Now and always, eternally, I am complete innocence, perfection and freedom."
  And so it is.
And So It Is.

What Brother Ernie said:
Chapter 7 - The Secret of Spiritual Power

By Spiritual Power I mean a dynamic something which is intelligent, conscious of what it is doing and able to do it without any external aid. We think of physical energy in terms of horsepower or the ability to lift a weight a certain number of feet from the earth. Let us think of Spiritual Power not as contradicting physical power, but as being more subtle. There must be spiritual power which does not contradict the physical, but is the parent of it --- being the greater, it must include the lesser.
Through the ages there are authentic records of persons who have exercised spiritual power, no matter what their religion or theology may have been. No one can be a student of history, or a keen observer of life, without coming to realize that there is such a thing as spiritual power. Therefore, without argument, we may accept its reality.
All the world is in search of Reality. Intuitively we feel the necessity of Something greater than we are, Something upon which we may rely with certainty. We need spiritual power even more than we need physical power. We need both and we have both. But having great physical energy at our command has not satisfied us. Consequently, we see an interesting thing going on in the world today -- many of our scientists are becoming philosophers endeavoring to determine the relationship of their own science to the larger meaning of life. One of the world's greatest psychologists says that after thirty years spent in analyzing the subjective thought of educated people from every part of the world he has found, in the case of people over thirty-five years of age, that almost without exception the neurosis is caused by the lack of a true religious perception. He is not speaking as the theologian, but as a scientist and a physician, when he states that in no case has there been a permanent healing without the restoration of some type of religious faith.

Food for Thought...

5 Tips to Living as A Spiritually Empowered Woman
1. Think less, feel more. 
Your body always knows the truth. Tap into your femininity, intuition, softness, gut feelings, nurturing essence. Use yoga and meditation to drop the seat of your awareness from your head to your heart. Nurture yourself with massages, hot baths, and healthy meals.
Your body is where the deepest part of your essence lives. This is when inspired thought gives you chills, when you feel more free to trust yourself, where courage comes from.
2. Start where you are. 
Not after the next course, book, or six figures. Now. Live your dream life, now. Question that voice that says "I'm not ready yet." If you don't love your work, no amount of money will make you love it.
You have a unique purpose here on earth. This is your passion and service to the world. Do what you love, NOW. The world needs the gifts that only YOU have. No matter what it is, you'll be a magnet for abundance because you'll raise your energetic vibration through living in alignment with your Spirit.
3. Be committed to live with awareness. 
Be open, willing, forgiving. Live with prayer, reverence, and love. Set intentions daily that re-affirm your deepest commitment to live a spiritually infused life. Create daily rituals that reinforce and ignite your spirit. Get to know your thoughts and beliefs, those separate from your family, friends and partner. Challenge your fearful and limited beliefs. Consciously release the past. Use daily affirmations to transform old patterns and create new positive and love-based beliefs. Be willing and open to ask for guidance from your angels and Higher Self.
4. Create community. 
Align with like-minded souls who nurture, inspire, encourage, support, and keep you accountable. Hire a mentor or coach. Join a women's circle or mastermind group. Attend community events at your yoga studio. Uplift and empower other women. Spiritually empowered women see other women's success and beauty as proof of their own possibility.
5. Be bold. Take risks.
Step out of your comfort zone. Don't wait to be praised, discovered, or validated. If you want to create your dream life, you'll need to have the courage to do things differently than 99% of the world. Don't worry about what other people think. Clear your path by walking it courageously.
Spiritually empowered women are living fully in the present moment. They have learned to love themselves without judgement. They surrender their desires and thoughts to God and reunite with the love essence that is always within. They share, serve, and smile and the Universe rewards them for it.
