Truth About Energy Healing, Light, and the Mind, Body, Emotion Connection: Is Your Own Negativity Zapping Your Faith? (part 3 in a Series)

Negativity, just like positivity, has a current, a flow, an energy. It flows outside of you from others and it flows inside of you from yourself. Your thoughts create energy, either negative or positive. Thoughts are a part of the flow, and they are never ending. Just close your eyes for a moment and observe your thoughts. They are running like a faucet, right? The Bible says, “As a man (or woman) thinks so he/she is.” Like it or not, your thought life creates the life outside of yourself and the life you live. Your thoughts affect the outcome of situations, how you handle them, and your emotional responses to what is happening. I want to focus on negativity and faith for a moment. Let’s keep in mind that situations happen. Not so great things happen in life. That is our reality right now. We become sad, upset, go through grief etc. This is part of being human. Some things just can’t be controlled, but our actions and how we react to them can. If …

Trustable and Healing Truth

This morning while sipping coffee I suddenly started contemplating truth and all of its many facets. I wondered why it is when we work through our ego human self it is so easy for so many people to lie to others and to themselves. Our humanness can be so deceptive sometimes. One deceptive untruth is telling ourselves that no one will ever know if we lie and another won’t find out. We can lie to ourselves as much as another and sometimes both. Beyond the lie there is such a larger scope of understanding. There is the non ego self within us that includes the presence of God. Within the presence of God inside of us there is truth that contradicts whatever lie might be present. In God there is no lie, there is only truth. It’s the only thing that can enter into God’s presence. When the ego self lie enters into the presence of God, something might come out like guilt, self condemnation, or deep sadness, depression etc. Keep in mind, the lie …

The Need to Be Certain in an Uncertain World

To be certain is to know for sure that something is going to be there for us to help us survive. It can be a person, a situation, and even an addiction. Sometimes it is our spirituality or the need for love or comfort. Regardless to where it comes from or how we get it, being certain brings us a sense of security. We feel we need this in this uncertain world and as a human being. In fact, we sometimes need this so much that we will either compromise love for it or we will mistake it for love. It makes no difference what is compromised, if being certain is important, our choices will be guided by it. Here is an example. A young woman is out on the street and has nowhere to go. Her life has had one crisis after another. Suddenly, she meets a man who offers her comfort. Maybe this is that he will be there for her, or give her some sort of sense of security. The woman is …

Weekly Wisdom: Your Dreams Can Have Insights

Part of my doctoral study was interpretation of dreams. These mystical imaginings are much more important than you might realize. Did you know, if you don’t go into dream state, you can mentally break down? According to scientific research, its true! Dreams are THAT important. Also, they can reveal mystical insights into your life. This week, pay attention to your dreams. Ask God to unlock the mysteries they hold for your life. Sometimes they present things you might not want to deal with. Ask for strength and wisdom to deal with your inner issues. Deep work, creates big results. If something is a part of you as a being, God made it so! Don’t forsake what messages your dreams might have for you. Write them down even if they don’t make sense. Insights will come when you least expect them to! Loving you from here, Dr Rev Jenine Marie Howry

A Lesson from the Cross We Don’t Always Think About

Easter weekend always brings a sense of spring, good weather, celebration, family, and food. Alright, these days sometimes the weather is not all the greatest around. But Easter brings up thoughts of chocolate, hard boiled and dyed eggs, leg of lamb and family gatherings. In the Christian church the focus is on Jesus, the cross, His sacrifice, His rising, and His love. In a time of celebration, the church has been lifting up Jesus every year for centuries for His acceptance of an experience that has gone down in history as one of the most profound acts of sacrificial love ever known to humankind. I have been so contemplative recently, as I meditated on the cross and what Jesus endured that day on Calvary’s mountain. I let my mind wander to the scene in the garden when Jesus prayed, sweat and cried, with blood, and anguish. He knew He was going to be crucified. Did He want this? Who would? We know He did not in his words, “Father please take this cup from me.” …

Love’s Truth

Along life’s path we all experience so many different feelings and facets of what love might be. It’s like it is segmented into pieces that we, as humans, can somehow understand. Maybe the full depth of it is so overwhelming that slicing it up like pieces of warm apple pie is the only way we can handle its implications. So, we segment, and find places in our lives where different facets of love belong. Of course, there is infatuation; the facet of love that is most confusing. We are meant to be infatuated with others. It is how deeper love can begin, or not. Infatuation is like a mini suburb of love. It takes what is seen and sensed on the outside and makes us feel all dizzy, dancing and emotionally almost high. In truth, infatuation causes changes in the brain that create a certain natural high that many of us mistake for love which is meant to be deeper.  Then there is dedication love. There might not be a dizzy dancing feeling but there …

Here is Your Weekly Wisdom! Honor All Life

Sometimes it’s hard to think of giving honor to those who might be a whole lot less than honorable in their deeds. I believe if we all think back for a moment, we can each come up with a time when we were less than honorable. I could never credit a dishonoring act or action, but I do know I can honor the life of a person even if I can’t honor their deeds. Today’s weekly wisdom took longer than it usually does for me. I’m a bit behind the grid. Today, set your intention to honor a life that you have felt has been less than honorable in deeds. Close your eyes and wrap love around the person. You don’t have to approve of their actions to love them as a human, and at a distance, if that is what is needed. Your heart will grow in the process and love will enter in a different way. Intend to uphold love for that person the entire day if you can.  You might not be …
