Theme for the month of June is:

Choosing Abundance

          “Our very lives become our creative masterpiece as we change, rearrange our vibrations and learn to dance with the Universe.” (Author unknown)

          I thrilled to the idea of dancing with the Universe, but then wondered who or what is this Universe? How might I dance with stars—celestial, not Hollywood—dance with mountains, streams, the prairies? At times I can be dense, too literal. It’s at such times I allow imagination to take hold. For those who would like a brief reminder how to enliven your imagination, here’s a short description of how I do it.

          Sit in your favorite chair. If conditions allow and there are clouds in the sky, lie down on your back on soft grass. Looking up, note the movement of clouds, or watch the flight of a bird.  Ask yourself, how might I dance with those clouds, or soar with birds? After awhile, it is possible to feel a rhythm, a movement stirring within.

          When I’ve taken time to experience such movement, I only need to hear the music of Jimmy Buffett singing Hotel California! Perhaps you have a favorite song that sets you dancing in mind, in spirit, in glee. In those moments, one can imagine extending that dance to events taking place in your life—a health challenge, a financial burden, a relationship, your spiritual connection with the Whole. That is the vibrational magnetism of the Universe. Ask yourself, “Shall I dance?”

          In Joy,

                    Rev. Pat


          Today I choose to dance with events in my life, and I lead with the guidance of my Inner Presence.
