Today I was blessed to have been asked to speak at another wonderful, beautiful, spiritual community – Unity of Citrus County.
The people here are amazing: gracious, welcoming, helpful… I couldn’t have asked for anything more.
I was also particularly struck by their over 10 acres of beautiful wooded grounds which are gorgeous! This includes a picturesque walking trail dotted with 12 stations, each one station representing one of Unity's 12 Powers of Man, where you can stop and reflect on what these powers mean in your life.
Further opportunities for meditation and prayer can be enjoyed at their peaceful labyrinth, set under a beautiful grove of trees with majestic moss hanging all around.
My lesson today was called, “That’s my story … and I’m willing to give it up!” In it, I talked about how we all have a story – a collection of experiences we’ve had in our lives. But we often latch onto the challenging ones, making them the central narrative our subconscious mind uses to filter current and future experiences.
However, by separating that facts of what happened in a given situation from our interpretation of what happened, we can make conscious choices guided by our Higher Selves about whether or not those stories are serving us any longer.
Afterwards, many people told me they resonated with the message, some sharing their challenges—past and present—and their willingness to reframe them in order to chart a new conscious path for the future.
It was a wonderful, spirit-led morning and I know I was equally blessed, if not more, for having the opportunity to share my story with them.
Thank you again, Unity of Citrus County!
