WEEKLY NEWSLETTER FOR January 14, 2019

The Theme for January is

“Time To Shine”

       Neuroplasticity is a fascinating feature of the brain that is now being studied as it reveals new understanding of how our brains work in transforming conditions in our lives. It demonstrates that the brain has the ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout our life. One thing that's been learned is that, very simply put, it was always assumed that as we age, our brain becomes "locked" into a certain way of functioning and new neural connections could not be made. Therefore, we had no chance of learning or relearning new ways to express. We now know this to be false.

       We now are learning, at a more definite level, that this particular function of the brain is at work acting on "our word", our definite choices and desires. Such can display a new attitude when seeking a healing of a chronic health challenge, or even relieving the stress of financial or relationship problems. We stay "locked in" to these conditions when we fail to see we have a vital key that can set us free of such conditions.

       One of my mother's frequent sayings was, "The Spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak." I did not always appreciate what that meant. I took it for granted that God wanted only for me what was good, true, joyful. Unfortunately, too often I made excuses, said I simply wasn't strong or smart enough, unable to master such high ideals. Fortunately, I've learned a few more positive and progressive things over the years, one being the

brain-heart connection.

       Neuroplasticity is indeed at work in my brain the same as it is in yours--but not necessarily at, as, or in the exact same way. We are each unique. We may access the brain's function to change current negative conditions by following a suggested method, but we all have different aspirations with differing levels of desires and resolve. We each march to a different drummer. And while we may desire a new drum roll, if we continue to accept, we are weak or unworthy, neuroplasticity has little chance of allowing us to hear any new rhythms.

       First comes the necessity of taking responsibility for doing the work, spending the time required and SPEAK YOUR WORD with feeling. With a willing heart coupled with a deep and joyfilled desire, your brain will comply with faith that God always says yes.

       Remember, we are surrounded by, and immersed in an Infinite Good. How much of this Infinite Good is ours? All of It. And how much of It may we have to use? As much

of It as we can embody, believe in, feel and know.

       In Joy,

            Rev. Pat
