Last January we set our theme as “The Year of Gratitude.” As I look back, I see I manifested so much to be grateful for. How about you? This year I will continue the practice of consciously being grateful as we set our theme of

“Experiencing Heaven in 2007”

The first step is to define what “heaven” means to us. In the dictionary, Heaven is 1) a place or condition of supreme happiness and peace where good people are believed to go after death, 2) a blissful experience, 3) where God lives.

Since we believe absolutely everything is God, we’re in heaven already – we don’t have to wait until we die a physical death – however, we can die to what no longer serves us and start acting like we really are living in heaven now!! Imagine what it would feel like to experience supreme happiness. We won’t be able to if we’re hanging on to anything that is unlike that. This is the year to take classes, read, be in spiritual community, pray, meditate and commune with nature. This is the year to truly do our spiritual work and reveal our authentic Selves!

I look forward to experiencing heaven with you,

Gratefully, Rev. Angelica


Love points the way and Law makes the way possible. Love and Law are two aspects of The Divine – that unconditionally loving, infinitely intelligent Presence that is the Source of all things – that permeates all things.

Love and Law are at work in me now as I speak this word:

I declare I am ready and willing to experience heaven right now. I am ready and willing to KNOW my True Self – God in form. I am ready to use this awareness to serve my world with love and gratitude.

As I declare these things, Infinite Intelligence goes before me preparing the way that Love has pointed out through me. I look forward with eager expectancy to all I manifest this year. I KNOW this year will be the best year ever!

With a grateful heart, I release these words, knowing they are already done. And so it is.

I can’t let Christmas go by without sharing my Great Aunt’s Christmas Story:

Once upon a time, there was a little boy, dressed in old, torn clothing, walking through the center of town. He stared at the gaily decorated shop windows with longing eyes. People rushed past him, with their warm coats and arms full of packages, getting into warm carriages to take them home. Some carried shopping bags with delicious smells, and the little boy looked longingly at those too.

None of the shop keepers paid any attention to him as he stopped outside their doors, letting the warm air heat his little body for an instant as the customers went in or came out.

The sounds of the carolers died away as the little boy walked away from the town’s busy center. Snow had begun to fall, but not one carriage stopped to offer him a ride. The little boy began to feel colder. As he walked down the road, he came to a large, beautiful house. The opulently decorated Christmas tree in the front window almost took his breath away. It was covered with big red bows, glass balls and candles everywhere. He could see toy soldiers and teddy bears, and pretty ballerinas. It was wonderful!

Music was coming from the house, and he could hear laughter and singing. “Perhaps these good people will take me in” he thought. It took quite a while for the door to open when he knocked. A tall, white haired man dressed in black and white, looked out at him, quite exasperatedly. “Go away little boy – go away. You should know better than to try to come in here!” The huge door slammed shut with a gust of warm air so strong it almost knocked the little boy over in the snow.

This same thing happened at every house he tried. Only the trees in the front windows changed.

Finally he came to the very edge of town. The snow was falling much heavier, and it was becoming harder and harder to walk. The little boy started to cry. Then in the midst of his tears, he saw a tiny light off in the distance. He struggled through the snow toward it and came upon a cottage. The candle in the front window was very small, but it beckoned to him invitingly. As he looked in, he could see a small tree branch in a pot on the table. It was decorated with bits of yarn and string, and underneath were some oranges and nuts.

In front of the fireplace was a woman dressed in simple clothing, holding a baby on her lap, talking to a small child seated in front of her. He listened for a moment to the soft voice telling the story of another child.

The little boy tapped on the window trying to get their attention. The small child tugged on the woman’s skirt. “Someone’s outside, Mother.” “No dear” she said, “it was only the wind blowing the tree branches against the house.” She set the baby in the child’s lap and went to the stove. “The porridge will be cooked in a minute, children, and then we’ll have our Christmas Dinner.”

The little boy knocked harder. “Oh, Mother, there IS someone outside.” the child said. The woman opened the door and saw the little boy. “Oh my poor dear” she cried, “come in this instant and sit by our fire! You are so cold and wet!”

The little boy soon found himself wrapped in a blanket, snuggled to the woman’s bosom. He felt so good and warm. The child brought a bowl of porridge for him to eat and then an orange and gave it to him as a Christmas present.

After awhile, the baby and the small child became sleepy, so the woman took them into the other room of the cottage to put them to bed.

The little boy sitting in front of the fire began to smile. As he smiled, his face lit up and he became surrounded by a golden light. The light grew larger and larger until the woman and her small child came back into the room to see what it was. They gasped as they saw that the tiny branch had become a large, gaily decorated tree, filled with presents …. There were smells of turkey, ham and pies coming from the oven. And as the light grew, the cottage expanded and new furnishings came into view. Soon the light was so bright they could no longer see the little boy. “Who was that Mama? the little child asked “That was no little beggar boy!” “No child,” said the Mother softly as tears streamed down her face. “That was the Christ Child.”

And from that Christmas on, a candle was always placed in the window to light the Christ Child’s way home.


There is only One Light that permeates all things. It is a Divine Light – the Christ Light. This Light is within me. There is nothing I could ever do to put that Light out. It is my Lifeforce.

Today I declare I fan the flames of this Light. I will no refuse my own Christhood in any area of my life. I will nurture this Flame with every part of my being, allowing It to shine in all the dark corners. As I acknowledge this Light, It becomes more predominant within me. It erases all pain, resentment, greed, any sense of not-enoughness. It fills me with Divine Love. It constantly reminds me that I am the Beloved in whom It is well pleased. My Light shines so brightly all who come into my Presence, recognize themselves as the Light and together we Light up the world.

I am so grateful for absolutely everything … especially for this season of the year that reminds me that I am the Light of the World, and I bless it with Love. And so it is.

Want to see something thought provoking and beautiful to take this Season to a deeper level?

I was listening to the news in the car yesterday and discovered a judge in Toronto had banned a Christmas tree from the courthouse because it represented a Christian holiday.

The Seattle airport had also removed a large Christmas tree because a Rabbi said he’d sue if a giant menorah wasn’t erected. (later he said he was kidding)

A woman put up a wreath on her condo in the shape of a peace sign and the strata council asked her to remove it because it was a pagan symbol.

All three of these events were because someone complained. Why do we have to be so exclusive instead of inclusive? The courthouse and the airport could have erected Jewish symbols and any other symbols for various religious holidays in December. And all three “authorities” could have done some research on the symbols before demanding their removal.

A woman called in to the radio station while I was listening and said this was just another example of Christians being persecuted. And there’s the answer to my question: We take things too personally!! Someone looked at a beautifully decorated tree (which is actually a pre-Christian symbol) and decided it was personally offensive. Their attitude was “What about me? I’m __________. (Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, whatever) and why isn’t my faith represented just as vividly as Christianity?” The good of the whole was sacrificed for the good of one.

These outpicturings are macrocosmic reflections of the microcosm of our personal lives. Where are we taking things too personally? Where are we expecting others to live according to the way we think life should be lived? The holidays are certainly good mirrors of our consciousness, collectively or individually!

This season let’s practice being more authentically Spirit … unconditionally loving!

Blessings, Rev. Angelica


There is only One Presence manifesting though and as many names, many religions. This Presence also knows Itself by our name. It our lifeforce, the vitality that animates our physical being. No matter what we call It, or how we worship It, It changes not. It just is. Unconditionally loving, infinitely intelligent, everywhere present.

Today I declare I will not take anything personally. I know in Truth, that everything in my life is here by my acceptance of it. I choose to let go and let the Divine Presence move through me in waves of Love. I choose to let others be exactly who they are without any preconceived ideas of what that should be. I no longer require that anyone live according to the rules I have set up for my life. Today I practice loving unconditionally, and in this way I reflect my Divine Nature.

Gratefully I release these words into Spiritual Law, knowing they are already done.

And so it is.

The other day, while going through a pile of papers to be filed, I found a scrap with this written on it:

“When did you last lay your head in the lap of awe.”

Think for a moment – when did you last let yourself experience a true moment of awe? All of us have them… one that instantly comes to my mind was being present at my Goddaughter’s birth.

The dictionary defines AWE as “a mixture of wonder and dread … a feeling of amazement and respect mixed with fear that is often coupled with a feeling of personal insignificance or powerlessness.”

Yes, this describes how I felt watching Esther being born, and for you who have given birth, it must be definitely be the way you felt during the experience!

This is the type of fear that is mentioned in the Bible. There is a line in Deuteronomy 6:13 that reads “Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name.” Whenever “the Lord thy God” is mentioned, we can read it as the aspect of God called The Law. To me, this statement metaphysically says “You will be in awe of the Law, and use it, and know it is True by your experiences of It.”

Seeing as we are using the Law all the time, let us consciously do so, and intend to have many little moments of awe this season. Recognize them and be grateful – and for goodness sake


Blessings, Rev. Angelica


I recognize the Infinite Awesomeness of The Divine. It is absolutely everywhere. I can not get away from It as everything is God in form and this includes me.

God is One with Itself always in all ways.

Today I allow myself to be in awe of the Power residing within me. With my thoughts and feelings I co-create my reality. I declare I am ready and willing to experience more of The Divine in every area of my life. As I speak my word for health, wealth, right livelihood, and loving relationships, I am in awe of how wonderfully Spirit works through me, creating more joy and wonder in my life!

Gratefully I release this word into Law, marveling at how delightfully the Law works for me, as me, though me. And so it is.

“Oh no! How did it get to be December already!!” This sound familiar?

Every year I’m so surprised when December rolls around. Suddenly there is so much to do.

Presents, crowds, food, family traditions -- all the magical things about the holidays, yet they can cause stress as well. Here’s my ideas to approaching and experiencing this season mindfully:

Gifts - My Mother used to keep lists so she’d remember to give presents and cards to people who gave our family one the year before. She’d even make sure she had a stack of unaddressed cards and a little cache of gifts just in case someone surprised her. How liberating it was for me to discover a Big Truth! I don’t have to have to do this! If we get a gift, and didn’t plan to give one in return, there’s no need to feel guilty. A simple heartfelt thank you is enough!!

We also don’t have to buy everyone a gift. Make a list and a budget and stick to it! (Wouldn’t it be wonderful to hear a news report that says, “credit card use was down this year!”) Let your creativity out! Make things! All of us have a gift or talent we can share. And the best present we can give anyone – is ourselves! More than gifts, our loved ones value the gift of Quality Time.

Crowds – Now this is a given so don’t let yourself freak out over it. The streets, parking lots and stores are going to be crowded. When you find yourself in lines -- people watch. Make up delightful holiday stories about the people you see in line. Bless them with good thoughts.

Food – Oh my goodness, the holiday goodies!! Don’t deprive yourself, but don’t go crazy either!! Food is fuel for the body so make sure you’re not putting in the cheap stuff. Rev. Helen Street used to love cinnamon buns. One day she stepped into a sticky bun store and just stood there and breathed in the scent and realized that was enough. If you’re going to have a goodie, practice mindfulness, eat it slowly, savouring each moment, each taste and texture sensation.

Families – Now here’s the place where most of the emotional stuff around the holidays comes up. The stuff that causes overspending and overeating. We’ve all got stories and they’re laden with guilt, resentment or disappointment. For as long as we remain attached to them, our stories define us. They limit the possibilities of who we believe we can love. This year, let’s let go of our emotional attachments that have kept us stuck in our stories and just accept people for who they are.

We need to stop our self-blaming stories as well. Since in every moment we are all doing the best we can, based on the beliefs and consciousness we have at the time, there is no reason for guilt or regret, anger or resentment.

This holiday season, let’s reveal our True Story. Regardless of appearances or circumstances, each person we’re meeting and interacting with is, in Truth, God in expression! Christmas is really about sharing love, having inner peace and recognizing the Christ within all!

Join me in doing the holidays mindfully this year!

Blessings, Rev. Angelica


At the core of the Universe is One. One Source, One Heart, One Mind. This Oneness is Love. Love flows into my world by means of me. As It fills me up, I relax and celebrate it with joy.

I let joy colour my world this holiday season. I choose to experience it mindfully. I am conscious of the spirit of the season and I let myself become more and more aware of the Christ Nature within all.

As I go about my daily life, I honour the Divine gifts that are always being given. I receive them gracefully and give them with unconditional love.

All of my stories have been transformed by my conscious recognition of the Divine Life in all.

Gratefully I celebrate Spirit today. God is good and all is well in my world.

And so it is.

The other night in our onLine SOM 101 class we were discussing intuition and how important it is.
This morning I opened my 365 Science of Mind daily book by Ernest Holmes and read:
Before they call I will answer; and while they are yet speaking I will hear.
Isaiah 65:24
Dr. Alexia Carrol tells us that intuition is not a product of the intellect, nor is it something that is developed in the process of our evolution. It is, then, a thing in itself. That which is instinct in the animal, blindly, unerringly leading it to food, water, and shelter, becomes intuition in humanity, consciously perceived. Instinct is intuition acting unconsciously; intuition is instinct elevated to the point of self-awareness. They are identical. Intuition is Omniscience acting omnipresently; therefore, whether or not we believe it, it is ever present with us.
Today, I know that intuition, which is the presence of the Divine Mind in me, will guide me aright. It will set me on the path of right action,. It will direct my footsteps. It will counsel my mind. Today I am aware that there is a light that dispels ignorance, fear, superstition, and doubt, and sets me, safe and sane, on the pathway of Truth.
The mind that we discover within us is the Mind that governs everything.
SOM p. 34
Many of us discount our intuitive flashes because we’ve been taught to, yet I believe it is one of the most powerful tools in our spiritual toolbox. I also know that even if we have discounted it up until now, we all have a story of how our intuition “saved” us in some way, so at some level we know It is always with us whether we consciously recognize it or not.
I’ve always felt our intuition is like a communication device between the Infinite and the finite – it enables us to be able to hear Spirit in a way that we will understand it. It speaks our particular language and in our voice. Intuition is Omniscience acting omnipresently through us!!
Thank you Spirit in me, as me. I now consciously choose to be still and pay attention!!
Blessings, Rev. Angelica
Gratefully I open my heart and mind to the awesome experience of The Divine. I know Spirit is everywhere – infinitely intelligent and unconditionally loving. I now consciously claim my awareness of Spirit in me as me.
As I do this, I open myself to my intuition, acknowledging It as an active part of Divine Mind in me. To do this, I breathe deeply and let go of the busyness of my life. I allow myself to become still and listen. I hear the Loving Voice within me, guiding me each step I take. I am so grateful I am choosing to pay attention!
There is only One Life, that Life is Divine Life, and that Life is my Life now. For this I am eternally grateful. And so it is.

One morning this week, I got up and looked at myself in the mirror. How did I get to be an older woman? I started picking on myself for not taking care of my body as I should have.

Later that day, I drove to Vancouver. I marveled at the gorgeous colouring in the trees. The reds, yellows and browns were so vibrantly alive, even though the trees were shutting down for the winter. Suddenly I started laughing at myself. Why should it bother me to get older? Life is eternal, yet all things have their seasons, and nature goes through her cycles gracefully. I can move into my autumn feeling sorry for myself, or I can move through in a blaze of color!

George Bernard Shaw wrote: "This is the true joy in life … being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one … being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy … I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.

I want to be thoroughly used up when I die. For the harder I work the more I live.
I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It's a sort of splendid torch which I've got to hold up for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing on to future generations."

Or in plainer terms -- “Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, coffee in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming ‘WOO HOO what a ride!’" -- author unknown


Joyful Blessings, Rev. Angelica


There is only One Life, that Life is Divine Life and that Life is living Itself as me right now.

I relax into Life with a sense of awe at Its magnificence. No longer do I groan about any part of it. It is all God, therefore It is all good. I celebrate Life in all Its forms and shapes. The more I acknowledge It the more vibrant It becomes.

My life, being Divine Life, has everything in it necessary to fulfill my highest good and greatest joy. I acknowledge and claim this as my Truth. How could it be anything else. God is Truth, and the Truth sets me free from all the “I should haves..”,

With a heart filled with gratitude, I celebrate Life! And so it is.

Friday, November 10, 2006

Whoo Hoo!! Big changes are happening in our world! With last Tuesday’s U.S. elections, and the first female Speaker of the House stepping up – I got really excited. We’re seeing results for the prayers, Treatments, meditations, etc., we have done for our world. Thank you Gods and Goddesses for the work you are doing in Mind!

However, have you noticed that sometimes when we are going for a particular result, once the initial manifestation begins, we stop our mental and emotional work? IE: we’re doing our spiritual work to have the perfect relationship, someone shows up, and we stop the work. Maybe we manifest who seems to be Mr/Ms Wonderful – yet after awhile, we realize this isn’t what we want – this is just shades of the past. Remember – what we are really working for is the CONSCIOUSNESS of a perfect relationship. Whatever we bring into our lives will be at the level of consciousness we are at now. This is the Law of Attraction. We are where we are on our Path of Life, because we’ve accepted where we are as our truth.

Our Spiritual Work never stops. You could groan and think “oh no!” at this news, but in Truth, it is an honour to be able to continually redefine and refine what it is we want in our lives. In our work for Peace, we’re going for inner Peace and Joy, knowing it will ripple outward and affect all. Peace and Joy are an inner experience of Oneness. Oneness is the consciousness we are accepting as our Truth. Keep up the good work!

Grateful Blessings, Rev. Angelica


I rejoice in the outer manifestations of my consciousness. I know this is happening because I recognize the One Presence throughout the universe – that Presence of Divine Love. I know Infinite Intelligence works through me as me, as Spiritual Law and for this I am grateful.

I now bask in the Oneness, never losing sight of my highest ideals. I speak my intentions to experience our world in peace. I know this starts within me, so I intend to be peaceful in my heart and mind and let it radiate out from me throughout my circle of influence.

I intend for all who live upon this earth to know they are of great value, and to have the benefits of that awareness.

I intend for us to experience our Oneness in beautiful and meaningful ways.

All things are possible for those who believe. I believe, and am so grateful.

And so it is.

Friday, November 03, 2006

Have you ever wanted something so badly you could almost taste it? Something that you Treated for, had intentions for, visualized yourself doing, and every other spiritual tool you knew? And then didn’t get it? Of course you have – it happens to all of us!

I recently went through this, and I’ll tell you, I also went through a week of “Why”? What a futile question!! When these things happen we might never know “why” so we have to TRUST. Totally Rely Upon Spirit’s Timing. In my case, I had to let go and know that that part of my Treatment where I add “for everyone’s highest good and greatest joy” was working.

Deepak Chopra says in The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: “The Law of Detachment says that in order to acquire anything in the physical universe, you have to relinquish your attachment to it.” I realized that my “why” questions were because I was in reaction to the results. I hadn’t practiced involved detachment. He goes on to say “This doesn’t mean you give up the intention to create your desire. You don’t give up the intention, and you don’t give up the desire. You give up your attachment to the result.”

Many times we’re so attached to the results we give up on the desire when we don’t achieve it the way we thought we were going to. Let’s remember that we are always working with an Infinitely Intelligent Principle. It knows what is for the highest good and greatest joy for all concerned!!

Thank God!

Grateful Blessings, Rev. Angelica


Today I recognize the Infinitely Intelligent Mind of the Universe. I recognize It is the Source of all things. It is everywhere present, including within me.

Today I choose to revisit those dreams that didn’t manifest the way I wanted. It they are still something my heart desires, I now allow myself to keep the desire, and the intention for those dreams, and I let Mind bring to me the fulfillment of my desire without being attached to the results. I KNOW Mind will put me in the right place, at the right time, with all that is necessary to their fulfillment.

I am so grateful for knowing Principle works so well in my life. My life is Divine Life, and I now joyfully get out of Its way for Its fullest expression.

And so it is.

Friday, October 27, 2006

I saw two great movies this past week. “Conversations with God” and “Man of the Year.” I’ve also read lots of good articles sent to me via e-mail. One of the important messages coming through at this moment is INTEGRITY. I feel I live pretty much in integrity … and then I looked up the word. The Latin root is wholeness, and one of the definitions of is: an undivided or unbroken completeness or totality with nothing wanting. I can’t honestly say I am an “undivided completeness.”

I remember Rev. Helen Street standing at the pulpit saying “We believe the universal mantra is OM – however, what it really seems to be is …..” and then she made the sound of snoring. How long are we going to complacently allow ourselves to sleep behind the mask of mediocrity? To be asleep to our magnificence?

Integrity is about WAKING UP ! To live in the totality with nothing wanting. This means going deeper in our Spirit. Being Real. Doing our spiritual practices whatever they might be, and remembering that as we do them for the benefit of our own lives, we are having an effect on thousands. Waking up individually is waking up humanity.

How grateful I am to be living in this time of a great renaissance. We are being birthed into our Real Selves and this is a very good thing!

Blessings, Rev. Angelica


I recognize the Totality of Spirit. It is absolutely everywhere, within and without. It is an active Principle working in, through and as each of Its manifestations.

I am one of those manifestations. I am a unique expression of the Divine. There is no one exactly like the physical me. No one who feels exactly the way I do. No one who thinks exactly like I do. This does not make me alone – this is my uniqueness and my uniqueness is valuable.

Today I choose to wake up to my Totality – I let go of anything idea of being broken or divided in any way. I am in absolute integrity – as Spirit, how could I be anything else. Now that I remember this, I see it show up in all the areas of my life.

I am so grateful to have woken up. I am grateful to be a consciously active part of the creative process. I am grateful for knowing who I am – Spirit in form.

I release these words into Universal Law, knowing they are already manifest. And so it is.

Friday, October 20, 2006

A friend of mine in Hawai’i was relating a story to me about how her boyfriend came up behind her and said “I’ve got your back.” We both thought it was such a sweet thing to say. Then about a week later I saw some t-shirts with the same words. I wondered if this was some new slang phrase that was circulating, and because it had come to my attention again, I knew it was a message for me. Before I “googled” it, I thought about what it meant. For me, “I’ve got your back” denotes a sense of protectiveness. A sense of the person saying “go ahead, I’ll watch out for you.”

“Googling” led me to discover that this is the title of a book on corporate strategy using a tennis model, the name of a movie honouring the men and women in the U.S. military and phrase used by pilots in the last world war.

I then discovered an ‘Urban Dictionary’ (fascinating!), which gave me this definition: “An expression assuring someone that you are watching out for them. Comes from making sure you are safe by watching what's behind you when you're busy looking ahead.”

I immediately saw this as something Infinite Intelligence is continually saying to us! We humans have a tendency to look backwards – reviewing, analyzing, re-playing the incidents in our past. Because of this, there seems to be an element of fear in moving forward.

If we were to accept “I’ve got your back” as a Universal Truth … we would march more confidently into our future. There wouldn’t be anything to be afraid of.

Stop for a moment and close your eyes. Imagine The Voice Within saying “I’ve got your back.” How does that feel? I have a feeling of empowerment, my courage gets stronger. I can let go of fear. I can continue to move into my Vision because there is That Within Me that has my back.

AND – because I know God has mine, I can say this to you--- “I’ve got your back!”

Blessings, Rev. Angelica


I know there is only One – one infinitely intelligent Mind/one unconditionally loving Heart. This is the Heart and Mind of The Divine. This is the one great Principle that is working in, through and as us at all times, in all ways.

I now step into my life more fully, knowing I am guided and nurtured by my conscious awareness of The One. It is living my life through and as me, honouring my choices. I choose to know I have nothing to fear. The Divine has my back. I am safe. I move into a greater vision of my life with ease, knowing all I have been and done, all I am now, and all I will be, is an expression of Spirit. Totally relying on Spirit means I can make no mistakes. I can only step into the fullness of my life, being authentic and whole.

In every area of my life, Spirit has my back - in my health, my wealth, my creativity and my relationships. I move forward with ease, expressing my whole Self.

Gratefully I release these words, feeling the liberation from fear. I am safe in the heart of The Divine. And so it is.

Friday, October 13, 2006

Whoo Hoo – Friday the 13th !! So what does that conjure up for you? I used to think I had to be really careful on this day as it was a day where all sorts of mishaps could happen. I know I’m not alone - that belief is in the collective consciousness of the western world.

On one of my long drives on my holiday, I listened to the book Ishmael written by Daniel Quinn. I loved it – it starts out with an ad "Teacher seeks pupil, must have an earnest desire to save the world". Quinn has his ‘teacher’, who happens to be a silverback gorilla, teaching his pupil about the basic myths we have created to live by. Knowing we are the writers of the current mythology, this made me start looking at the myths in the collective consciousness I had accepted in my life.

Friday the 13th used to be one of those myths. As I go deeper into awareness of our basic Law: “It is done unto us as we believe” I realize how important it is for us to constantly re-evaluate what we believe, where we got the belief, and whether it still serves us.

Think about this, if I buy into a myth that tells me if I walk under a ladder, or a black cat crosses my path, I will have bad luck, that myth becomes a law for me, and I have to honour that law or suffer the consequences.

This is the same with all generally accepted myths – here’s a few negative ones: We can only leave this body by getting ill; We are never good enough; Love hurts; Life is a struggle; Aging is bad. We are being bombarded with a number of myths on a daily basis though the media and daily conversations. If we accept these as part of our personal mythology, we have to live by them.

How grateful I am to have this wonderful philosophy to work with! I know I can choose what mythology to live by, indeed I can create a new myth moment by moment. Today I choose this one:

“I live in complete confidence that I am on the pathway of endless unfoldment, walking in the Light of infinite Wisdom.”

Dr. Ernest Holmes – 365 Science of Mind

Grateful Blessings, Rev. Angelica


There is only One Life, that Life is God’s Life, and that Life is my life now. How grateful I am to know this Truth. I celebrate the Oneness!

This One Life responds to my thoughts and feelings through Law with ease and grace. I am the one making up the laws. I contemplate the mythology, the story of my life, that I have lived by up until now, and allow myself to accept a new story in the areas that no longer serve me.

I now declare that my new story is about health, wealth, creativity and love. And on a deeper level my story is about living the Divine Life with joy. I settle into my Spirit with complete confidence and trust, knowing that my desire is for the highest good and the greatest joy for myself and all others.

Gratefully I surrender to my new mythology. This is a Divine Story and it is a good one! And so it is.

What great fun it is to travel. Hawai’i was a great blessing. It was so good to be around family and make new friends as well.

One of the things I’ve noticed as I talked with people is that changes are happening in many people’s lives. Some changes are manifesting painfully, and some with excitement. Each story I heard was a microcosmic view of the changes that are happening in our world.

Years ago, I was sitting in a class where a question was asked about the 2012 experience the earth is prophesied to have. The teacher responded that the earth was being born into a new dimension, and as this happens, it is as if we were being placed into a giant sieve, and shaken until all the dross falls away.

I describe it this way: a new paradigm of peace and compassion has been birthed into the forefront of the collective consciousness, and the old paradigm of “might is right” is fighting to stay alive. Each of us in participating in this birthing in our own way. As our experiences come up we chose how we are going to react to them – it’s usually a split-second, unconscious choice, but it is a choice.

I believe our participation in this emergent evolution (as Dr. Holmes called it), is to be more mindful of our participation, of our choices. This weekend is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, and gratitude is one of the best ways I know to be more mindful. Right now, stop and take a deep breath. Don’t keep reading – close your eyes for a moment and just breathe and let yourself relax into your Spirit. Now, let yourself be totally in the moment. Be aware that this moment is the only moment there is, Be aware that in this moment there is nothing to be anxious about. Breathe deeply again. Now, allow yourself to be grateful for the experiences of your life, and all the choices you have made up until now. Be grateful you are alive, you are awakening, you are here in this moment. In this moment of grateful mindfulness, declare that from now on, all your choices will be for the highest good and the greatest joy of all. Be grateful you can choose this. Breathe deeply again to anchor this choice.

The 14th century Christian mystic, Miester Eckhart wrote “If the only prayer we prayed was thank you, that will suffice.” This is so true today.

I thank God for YOU !

Grateful Blessings, Rev. Angelica


Today I am consciously aware of the One. I recognize It as infinitely intelligent and unconditionally loving. I am the focus of this great mind and heart. It is living my life, in, through and as me.

Knowing this, I now take my place as a Divine Being. I am ready and willing to live my life for the highest good and greatest joy for all. I celebrate my choices, knowing they are blessing me delightfully, and then radiating from me and blessing others. I am a willing vehicle for the Light and Love of The Divine.

I am so grateful to be here now. I am grateful for my awakening to my True Nature. I am grateful for my awareness of spiritual law. I am grateful that all there is – is God. Therefore I declare: God is good, and all is well with my world.

And so it is.

Aloha again from the Big Island of Hawai'i!

Last month many of you participated in my Thank God I'm Rich program, to expand our consciousness of prosperity. This week I've gotten to experience abundance at a whole new level. It's like I'm visiting royalty -- all my needs have been met with ease and grace. Many before I even thought of asking!

Here's one little example: Tuesday, my friend Louise & I went swimming at the hot ponds – a very magical place.

On the way home she offered to drive me up an old road that is flanked by huge mango trees. She suggested we stop and find some to eat, and just as we opened the car door, a tree-ripen mango fell in front of her car! She offered that one to me, and found another, and we continued our drive. What a delight! Riding along a winding road, through an old grove mango forest with tropical flowers of every sort … experiencing a visual feast and eating mangos. Now that's abundance!!

Prosperity isn't really about big cars & houses, and tons of money – though all that stuff can be fun to create - it's about experiencing the delights of what's right in front of us. The gifts of The Universe that are always being given.

The Big Island is experiencing another type of abundance – a small frog that sings at night called a Coqui. Many of the residents are irritated because of the noisy infiltration of this animal, yet last night as I listened, I remembered an acronym for frog = Fully Relying On God! Nighttime is when most people do their worrying. Rev. Tag says the Spanish translation of the frog's name is "It's me!" so the songs of the frogs can remind them God is always here. As one worries, they will hear The Divine saying "It's me! It's me!" And isn't this the Truth, everything, including the frogs and us, is God.

It announces Itself in many ways so we can remember to fully rely upon It.

How is the Universe announcing Itself in your life? Let yourself count the ways.

Grateful Blessings, Rev. Angelica


God is Love, and Love what we are. Love is the magnificent energy that is the source of all things, and the energy that makes up all things. It is absolutely everywhere present. Love points the way, and the Law makes the way possible.

Knowing this, I declare that it is my intention to see and experience all the love notes The Universe is constantly giving me. As I recognize them, I celebrate my conscious awareness of how much I am loved. I am so grateful to know how valuable I am in the grand scheme of things, and I accept my sacred right to Being.

God in me, as me, is having a delightful experience of Itself. This is good, very good. I fully rely on the God Presence within me to guide me into an ever greater joyful appreciation of abundance!

And so it is.

Aloha from the Big Island of Hawai'i!

I share with you the wonders of my former churches 20th anniversary. I've experienced a great celebration party with dinner and dancing on Saturday night, and a full house on Sunday morning, followed by a swim in my favorite hot ponds.

It's such an ego-boost to be the guest of honor, and absolutely delightful to have a reunion with old friends. Yet the thing that humbles me is having the ability to see the legacy I created. During the party on Saturday and after the service on Sunday many people came to me saying "You don't know me, but I want to thank you for starting this church – it has made a tremendous difference in my life."

As I stood at the lectern, looking out at the faces of the Center for Spiritual Growth's members and friends – I suddenly realized those lives had been touched because I decided to start following an Inner Guidance years and years ago. I decided to start living my bliss.

We're all leaving a legacy. We're creating it moment by moment. The image of a drop of water causing ripples on a smooth surface comes to mind. I now have a much deeper understanding of how every single one of our choices affects countless others, and how important it is to be mindful of them. How grateful I am to be able to see the fruits of my choices!

In Religious Science, as we honor the powerful Presence of The Divine within us, allowing It's infinite intelligence to guide us, and accepting the Unconditional Love that is always being given, we shall, as Dr. Holmes writes: "expand into a greater livingness – our world created by our consciousness, and our consciousness taking its color from the perception of our relation to the Infinite!"

Grateful Blessings, Rev. Angelica


I open myself to the conscious awareness of the Truth of my being. All there is – is God. An infinitely intelligent, unconditionally loving, everywhere present, all powerful Energy that resides within me as well as around me.

Today I recognize God foremost in all my choices. I am open and willing to live a Divine Life, filled with blessings beyond measure. I am willing to consistently choose that which is the best for all concerned, which includes myself. I am willing to live in integrity and authenticity as the spiritual being that I am.

My willingness opens doors of opportunity where I might have thought there were none. My willingness reveals to me the powerful person that I am. I accept with grace and gratitude all that is for me to do. I know I am not alone. I am in Oneness with Life, and this is good, very good.

Gratefully I release my word into spiritual law, offering myself in service, knowing the Law always works. God is good, and all is well in my world.

And so it is.

Some of us are participating in the 11 Days of Forgiveness leading up to the International Day of Peace on September 21st.

What does forgiveness have to do with peace? If you review your own life, you know that when we are holding something against another, those thoughts become like a hamster wheel of frustration and resentment in our minds, and inner peace is lost.

Through forgiveness, we can make a difference in our world, one mind at a time!

One of the most important people to forgive is ourselves. You might be saying “Wait a minute – I didn’t cause ________ to happen in my life (my boss to fire me, my husband/wife leaving for another, etc.) No, you might not have caused it, however, the study of the Science of Mind helps us to realize that something in our consciousness attracted our part in the experience. So maybe we need to forgive ourselves for making the choices we did – and finally let go.

Going even deeper -- I attended a workshop years ago where I heard the facilitator say that there are two bottom line beliefs that most of us still carry: ‘we are not enough’ or ‘we are unloveable.’ Both of these are lies that we need to forgive ourselves for believing in.

To help us do this, I share a wonderful 9 minute video meditation that came to me this morning – give yourself this gift.

You are Magnificent!! You are an incarnation of an infinitely intelligent, unconditionally loving, powerful Presence! This is your Truth!

Breathe deeply and believe!


There is only One Life, that Life is God’s Life, and that life is my life right here, right now. I accept this as my Truth and as the Truth for everyone.

I declare I am now opening up in deep surrender to the Powerful Presence within me. I release all my attachments to the events of my past that kept me in bondage. I breathe deeply and celebrate my freedom!

In this freedom I make new choices. I let Infinite Intelligence guide me and Love support me in my decisions for my life. I now have unlimited happiness on all levels of my being. I know who I am – Spirit in form, and this is good, very good.

With a grateful heart, I let go and let God doing Its perfect work in, though and as me. And so it is.

Everything we have ever done, every word, every thought and every breath, has brought us to this moment. Each of us has created this moment by the choices we have made.

Yesterday I watched a flock of geese flying across the sky. I looked at that “V” shape and at the lead bird and thought – “Wow, that’s me, flying into my future – and people are willing to follow – and they’ve been doing it for the past 20 years!!”

I felt overwhelmed with gratitude. Suddenly I remembered a treasure map I did back in the early ‘80’s on which I pasted a cemetery head stone that read “Her life was better than most people’s fantasies.” Because of the people in my experience, those that I have classified as positive and negative, I have been able to live my life in an awesome way, and done things people have only dreamed about. And it’s not over yet!!

Each of us influences people, known and unknown, with the way we live our lives. Just think, right in this moment while you are reading, you are perched on the edge of your future and there are people willing to follow you into that future, confident that you know what you’re doing! Seems like a big responsibility, eh!?

It’s not really – as we live in integrity with compassion and love, invoking as much joy as possible, we can be assured that as we lift our consciousness we lift the consciousness of the people in our circle of influence, and many, many more.

We can remember we are not in this life alone … no matter what is happening, not only do we have friends and family (of birth or choice) to help us, but there is an Infinitely Intelligent Essence within us, that will nurture and guide us along our Path, if we let it. Why let our lives be a struggle? We don’t have to do it all ourselves.

We can remember that when we are ready the next teacher will appear. Maybe that teacher will be a person, maybe an experience. We can move forward along our Path letting go of the old adage “no pain, no gain.”

We can remember that the good we do, never goes unacknowledged or unrewarded. We don’t need to look for it --this is karma – or the Law of Cause and Effect.

The author Clarissa Pinkola Estes wrote: “Anything you do from the soulful self will help lighten the burdens of the world. Anything. You have no idea what the smallest word, the tiniest generosity can cause to be set in motion. Be outrageous in forgiving. Be dramatic in reconciling. . . Be off the charts in kindness..... Mastery is in increments, not in leaps. Be brave, be fierce, be visionary. Mend the parts of the world that are "within your reach." To live this way is the most dramatic gift you can ever give to the world. Consider yourselves assigned.

I thank you for being a part of this online Spiritual Community. Know I am here for you in Spirit, always, in all ways.

Blessings, Rev. Angelica


We are all expressions of the One Life manifesting infinite possibilities. All spiritual beings having a spiritual experience we are calling being human.

As a conscious expression I let myself take on the role of leadership with joy and grace, and I rejoice as I join others doing so as well. We are leading ourselves into our futures, becoming more and more aware of how powerful we are.

I declare I am ready to life a Life Magnificent. I am willing to be a greater expression than I already am. I surrender all sense of littleness, and welcome my work in this world. I know that though it seems like I am doing it alone, in Truth, I am supported by Infinite Intelligence in all Its many forms. I am loved and loving. I am healthy and express health–giving thoughts. I declare that everything I am and everything I do is for the highest and best good of all. God as me, in me, does great work, just as It does in everyone.

I am so grateful to be a conscious expression of The Divine. And so it is.
