Well the truth is that we are all in relationship and its time that we realize that love is not just for couples in the first stage of love and attachment! Love is essential for us all to experience and to radiate. This is regardless of whether we are in a romantic relationship, just ended one or are looking for one.
Our love is not dependent upon anyone other than ourselves. I invite you to listen as we explore this essential topic. Who knows what kind of gifts you may receive today?

How many of us have made resolutions for the year ... Read Morea few weeks ago? Here it is, only 24 days into the New Year and how many of these resolutions have gone out the window already? Probably more than we would like to admit.
If it's a goal/resolution, it means we are probably giving something up or striving for something new. Either way, it means were going to need to change our habit patterns and thought forms, in order to accomplish our goals.
Join me as I challenge you with new ideas and new approaches to how we face change and lay claim to our goals in 2016.

Yes, I have found myself saying it at times. But within that response, is a supposition that what is happening is wrong. It's a visceral reaction to life.

Three French Hens ~ Really???? - Sunday December 27th, 2015
Turns out this weeks talk didn’t go at all where I ... Read More expected it to go! But, the more I do this work the more I have come to believe that everything has a metaphysical meaning. I couldn’t find French Hens in the metaphysical bible dictionary, but here in Unity we do believe that we are all one and that includes the animal world and that includes French Hens! Now French Hens are a very special sort of chicken, and if we experience chickens in our animal totem world, it may be a clear message that we need to reevaluate our response to something that is going on in our lives right now. Are we responding from our heart or are we responding out of fear? Are we backing down when we should be standing up. Do we distract ourselves with chatter and unhealthy gossip? Do we listen – really listen – to what others have to say? It turns out that French Hens can be a symbol of our own great potential and that in order to achieve our dreams we must find the courage to overcome our fears. Please join us on this Third Day of Christmas as we develop our vision for overcoming fear.
Blessings,
Rev. Medora

What have you lost in life that you are looking to ... Read More replace?
What if I was to tell you, what you think you lost, can be found right here today? Would you be interested in that? Hold that thought.
Today, I am exploring The Lost Parables. These three parables all surround the idea of what it is like to lose something. Our search for what was lost and the joy in finding it once again.
I think this is a universal story that shows up many times in our consciousness and in our life experience. When we feel the loss of something, we need to know that whatever was lost can be found again, as everything is available in consciousness.
In preparation for watching/listening to this talk, I ask you to reflect upon what are you presently seeking. I invite you to read the lost parable stories in the Bible, New Testament, Gospel of Luke, Chapter 15.
