Growing Up

Participate in a WORLD PEACE INTENTION EXPERIMENT this coming Sunday … Lynne Mc|Taggart is the author of The Intention Experiment, and has been running many experiments on the effects of intention on healing, water, and plants.

Some of us were talking about how and when we lost our sense of value. We noticed that children before a certain age don’t have a loss of self-worth. They just are who they are.

A memory came up. Our house was a California styled Spanish hacienda. We had a wide covered Spanish tile walkway all along the front of the house. Every 4 feet or so, there was a large half wine barrel with a beautiful camellia bush. I was watering the camellias, and the front door opened and my little sister, Laura, come out dressed in a new pink dress – she was probably 3 years old and looked absolutely darling. “Don’t I look pretty?” she asked. And our Mother, who was right behind her, said sharply “Don’t ask questions like that Laura, it’s not nice.”

So that’s where we get it from – our parents – who were only behaving in the way they had been taught. It’s too bad that something so natural as thinking you look nice, was considered impolite. Yet, Mother was one of Laura’s idols – and her idol had just told her she did something wrong! I don’t know that this is true, but Laura might have become afraid that if she acknowledged herself, someone would get mad at her … and that could be bleeding through into her adult life now.

We all go through this experience in one way or another, so there must be some reason for it. However, the reason really doesn’t matter. Perhaps we sometimes suffer from low self-worth because our emotions have been stuck in the experiences of our past. Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s time to grow up.

The Science of Mind teaches us that there is within us an infinitely intelligent and unconditionally loving Presence. It teaches that there is only One Life -- God’s Life, and this is our Life. Join me in believing we have moved in consciousness from being children of God to being expressions of GodLife. This is growing up!!

Grateful Blessings, Rev. Angelica


God is the Infinite Presence expressing Itself as everything in, through, and all around me. There is no person, place, or thing that is separate from God. In gratitude, I call forth the feeling of Love, knowing this is what God is.

Today I declare I am ready and willing to move beyond my childhood fears and pains. I am willing to grow up. I now accept my place as co-creator. I am conscious of the Truth that my thoughts and feelings are reflected in my world, and that the Law of Attraction is always at work in, through and as me. I am responsible for my good and I am open to receive all that is for my highest and best.

Gratefully I release these words into the Law of Mind, knowing they are done. And so it is.
