The Waiting Place…
…for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come, or a plane to go or the mail to come, or the rain to go or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow or waiting around for a
Yes or a No or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.
Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite or waiting around for
Friday night or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil, or a Better Break or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
Everyone is just waiting.
NO! That’s not for you!
Somehow, you’ll escape all that waiting and staying.
You’ll find the bright places
where Boom Bands are playing.

The Advent season is a time of waiting. This year our Reverend Pat Bessey at Unity for Spiritual Growthhttps://unitygreaterportland.org, has led us in a deeper walk of reflection and contemplation as we wait for the celebration of the Christ’s birth in us at a deeper level. I couldn’t resist including Dr Seuss’s poem printed above. It pokes great fun at waiting. We wait a lot in our lives and now a lot of us play games or send a text on our phones while we wait at Dr’s offices or for a bus, etc.

Like the darkness, waiting can be uncomfortable or difficult. We always have a choice in how we spend our time waiting. Why resist waiting when you know it is often part of beginning something new. Waiting for the right time to make a change vs rushing the process. On the other hand, have you ever been having so much fun or enjoying something so much that you didn’t want it to end? Waiting had a part to play in it, right? It made that experience so much more rewarding.

Anticipative and expecting are two synonyms for waiting. I have often noticed the anticipation that is in the theater before a performance. It comes through in the sounds of the conversation around me. Metaphysically, wait means when we listen for the voice of Spirit we are waiting on the Lord. We can receive revelation, inspiration, and guidance in the silence within. Silence is the sound of advent.

Waiting is hard for families in the hospital, waiting for their loved ones to heal or turn a corner in their recovery. This is when I remind them that good things happen slowly.

Since it has been proven that patients can hear you speaking when in a coma or when semi sedated which I have always believed, I encourage families to speak or pray with them as though they would respond. This also invites Silence to be utilized for their highest good.

In the waiting during advent for the birth of the Christ with in us, one can use the time to release things, people or situations that no longer serve us. Prosperity teacher and Unity minister, Rev Catherine Ponder, has a broom prayer that she wrote that I have used. Another Unity Minister and prosperity teacher, Rev Toni Boehm https://toniboehm.com/, wrote the following version that I now use:

Universal Alignment Invocation

The swift powerful activity of Universal Intelligence

Now releases from me

All thoughts, beliefs, behaviors, ideas, and energies

That are not in vibrational alignment with the

Universal principles of truth

The swift powerful activity of Universal Intelligence

Now attracts to me

All persons, thoughts, beliefs, behaviors ideas and energies

That are in vibrational alignment with the

Universal principles of truth and the

Highest possibilities in the unified field of consciousness.

Using this prayer removes what you no longer need and creates an order and supports you in creating changes in your life. Notice in the prayer that you aren’t removing people from your life; you are attracting supportive ones. You can also use the releasing processes I have written about in this blog. No matter how you choose, this is all in preparation for birthing the Christ from a deeper level in your spiritual womb within.

Happy Holidays to you!

Birthing the Christ, Part I

     This blog has finally birthed. How perfect  to begin with the birth of Jesus which in Unity means birthing the Christ at a deeper level within us. The picture that is before you is one that I took of the view from the Blue Ridge mountains. It is only a small representation of the beauty of this Shenandoah Valley where I have the privilege of living. Likewise,  it shows some of that same Christ presence that is within us.  

      In Unity we translate the Bible and life, metaphysically. We look at the meaning beyond the words or situation that is going on before us. This gives us a practical application to use in living a spiritual life.  Always keep one thing in mind, however, as you have heard it said, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. There isn’t always a meaning to absolutely everything in that one can get stuck in over analyzing.  You just look at what jumps out at you in the present moment and what it might be teaching you. We look at symbols and metaphors for clues and trust the feelings that we experience.

     Unity’s cofounder and mentor to myself, Charles Fillmore, talked about birthing the Christ in his Christmas sermon on Sunday, December 22, 1912.                                                                                                                                                                                 

“The essential thing is to know and understand that the real child of God is formed in your soul. It exists there and is now being manifest. Make yourself a present of that thought; and make it an everyday thought. Let Christmas be every day. Enter into the Christ Mind and see Christ in you.

I know a man who has grown wonderfully in spiritual understanding and spiritual power, and he told me once that he made it a daily practice to see Christ in his heart. He saw the Christ as a picture, as a life, and he said he talked mentally to that Christ portrait at his heart’s center; and he said a light has gradually sprung up within me that lights my way. I am a changed man from mentally seeing Christ in me, instead of looking at the Christ outside, looking at a historical Christ, thinking about the man as separate from me. ‘I am the Christ of God’, is the dominant appellation of that man to himself, and he has demonstrated it. And he is only one of thousands who have brought that Christ principle home to everyday life, who are bringing forth in themselves the Christ of God, who are forming Christ in them.”

      Here is an example that a change in our life begins with our consciousness. We can birth whatever we want. As you probably know, the life that you are currently living was birthed from a level of your consciousness. We create our consciousness with our thoughts, one word at a time, one sentence at a time. Life is consciousness and relationships. The consciousness we show up in dictates the relationship we will have in that very moment with an idea, a person or a situation.

     Jesus said we are the light of the world and not to hide it under a bushel. When we shine our light, we are expressing the Christ from within our being. I invite you this week, to let Christ begin to come into your consciousness, open and receptive, coming as a child in your own unique way. Stay tuned for Part II.

You are welcome to leave a comment or question, or addition if you feel so inclined. Thanks in advance for your contributing consciousness to this one that has just birthed.
