Our Thoughts Are Prayers

by Rev. Deb Phelps

image  At the Pathways of Light ordination ceremony on August 6, 2005, as with each ordination ceremony, we sing a song titled, “Our Thoughts Are Prayers.”

The lyrics are: Our thoughts are prayers, And we are always praying. Our thoughts are prayers, Be aware of what you’re saying. Keep a higher consciousness, A state of peacefulness, And know that Love is always here, And every thought… remains a prayer.

The Prison

by Rev. Veronika Wilcox

image  I had sat down to have an open and honest talk with my husband. Then came the old grievance — he can’t understand why we are now having this difficulty when the first few years we got on exceptionally well. I accuse him for not letting go of the past and for not liking me as I am now but always comparing me to how I used to be in the beginning.

I went to my room because I was beginning to feel upset. The inner pain poured out in bitter tears. With it came the hurt voice of the ego feeling bitter resentment. But I knew I was not alone and everything was in His Presence.

Career by God

by Barbe Smith

“This is not what you should be doing with your life.”

I have always been a sensitive type so spiritual bursts of wisdom have never been strange to me yet the above ‘knowing’ that hit me one August day in 2004 pretty well knocked the wind out of me and has launched me on a journey I never anticipated I would need.

Some back story is in order: I was a good Catholic girl, intelligent, making the grades I was supposed to, going to college in the late 1970’s as I was privileged to, and marrying at age 25 to go on to raise my three children, staying at home during their youth, of course.

Releasing the Reigns: Letting God Plan Our Future

by Rev. Cheryl Ford

image  To plan or not to plan, that is the question.

It seems that more and more my husband and I are resisting the temptation to plan out our future. Prague is beautiful, but we only “planned” to stay here for the summer. Then, although we’ve decided that we are going to let our future “plans” be lead by Holy Spirit, our conversations always seem to meander over to “planning” where we will go next and what we will do when we get there…

The Present

by Rev. Petra Sundheim

This Holy Instant, timeless and
eternal Yesterday, only memories now.

I rewrite today the script I wrote,
With unforgiven pain, I bloat.

Retroactive Forgiveness

by Rev. Myron Jones, O.M.C.

Rev. Myron JonesForgiveness is my purpose in life. It is what I do. Anytime I feel anything less than joy about whatever circumstances pop up, I know that I have before me another chance to forgive. It is through forgiveness that I am healed. If I have held onto a grievance, then that grievance has had time to play itself out through my body, and so when I forgive, I give my body a chance to heal. Holding a grievance affects my mind. It holds me prisoner to raging emotions- anger, fear, built, vengeance, despair. Forgiveness frees me an dallows me to experience joy again.

A Course in Harmony

by Rev. Barbara Kraetsch, O.M.C.

Rev. Barbara KraetschThe 2005 ACIM International Conference, held in April in Salt Lake City, attracted teachers and students from all over the world. They came together to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the scribing of A Course in Miracles and to pay tribute to the Course itself. There was sharing in music, song, comedy, teaching lectures, questions and answers, guided meditations, interactive experiential activities and heartfelt stories of healing. It truly was a wonderful gathering.

The Journey Home

by Rev. Anita Ottley, O.M.C.

Rev. Anita OttleyFrom a very early age, I spent a great deal of time “living” in my own mind. What I would perceive as the “horrors” of my childhood left me feeling very alone and most of my time in fear of something. It was at the age of about 12 that I remember thinking to myself while I was alone in my bedroom that no god would ever allow the things to happen to a child that I had endured. It was at that moment that I consciously separated from God. It was also at that moment when I felt like I had no home anywhere in the world.

Share Your Gift!

by Rev. Christine Anderson, O.M.C.

Rev. Christine AndersonThe following message came to me. I would like to share it with you because we are one and have the same purpose.

You have a gift to give. Your gift is an important part of the awakening of the Sonship. All My extensions have a gift to give. They may appear to be different in form and yet they are all the same in essence. The greatest gift comes from a peaceful mind and a happy heart — a mind that, with the help of the Holy Spirit, has no conditions on peace, no conditions on happiness. Do not make an assessment as to what you think you have learned in this world to determine your gift. Your gift is being the Love that you are in a way that makes your heart sing.

Forgiveness — It’s More Than I Thought

by Rev. Robert Mills, O.M.C.

Rev. Robert MillsLast night while resting from a busy day of being lead by Spirit, I was tired, sore, open and willing. I had done quite a bit of physical labor moving trees that had blown down on the farm that were in the path of gardens and buildings. Earlier that morning I had stated and written down what I wanted to become of this day: Rebirth of my true Self, full presence in my being of the One Christ Mind — one with all; peace, serenity, acceptance and playfulness; forgiveness of the past thoughts that are not true; shining with Love. The world is bright with Love.

Guidance Challenged

by Rev. Jennifer McSween, O.M.C.

Rev. Jennifer McSweenThere was a time when I was certain that I was among that special group of people (which I was equally certain existed), who did not have access to Inner Guidance. I remember matter-of-factly sharing this “key piece of personal information” with my facilitator when I began studying Pathways of Light’s ministerial training program.

Large Scale Projections

by Rev. Therese Anne Ward, O.M.C.

Rev. Therese WardIt was spring and all creation was bringing forth new life. Buds were cropping out and signs of nest building were everywhere. Making use of this natural cycle of energy, our son and daughter-in-law began plans for their family ‘nest,’ a new home.

The architect had submitted his sketch of what he understood they wanted. Of course, what was thought to be clear communication, had failed to materialize the desired plans. I’m one who enjoys making floor plans with my ‘magic pencil.’ A builder once told me that I could draw any (#!*!) thing I wanted with that magic pencil but that didn’t mean it could be built.

The Practice of Healing and Transformation

Rev. Colleen McNally

I woke up this morning. It was early and I realized that I was wide awake. As I am in the process of doing my Miracles Practitioner practice, I am having this experience of words resonating in me. I am finding that I will take one passage from A Course in Miracles or from Pathways of Light Course 921 and immerse in it before sleeping.

The Journey Back Home

by Rev. Linda Wisniewski

May 28th, I and seven other students were ordained as ministers of Pathways of Light. For me it was the culmination of a long journey from darkness into light; a journey of the prodigal son’s return Home to his Heavenly Creator. Like so many others, I had become disillusioned with the God of my childhood script Who was supposed to be loving but Who I falsely believed also created a world of pain, misery and suffering.

The Courage to Leap

by Rev. Susan Hanshaw

As much as I thought I wanted to move in the direction of doing spiritual teaching, I went on for an entire year in my marketing job after becoming an ordained minister before I lifted a finger towards creating anything with it. I don’t know if I believed what I was telling myself that it just wasn’t time yet, that I hadn’t quite finished the marketing stint yet.
