Rev. Celeste's guest is Robert Raymond Riopel, an international best selling author, app designer, entrepreneur and a trainer who has traveled the world inspiring people to tap into their greatness.  His clues open others to the possibilities that lie within them.He was taught that working hard for a company and staying for 25 years and being loyal would lead to financial stability.  He learned that wasn't really true.  However, after a lot of  stumbling, bumbling, making mistakes and learning, and with amazing people who wouldn't let him play small, he found a way to be happy, successful and financially prosperous. He kept losing jobs and the only jobs left in Alberta, Canada were delivering pizzas. He soon became a manager, his wife became his assistant, and they worked from sun up to sundown daily. They qualified to be a franchisee.  They got 100% financing, but they didn't know how to run a business. They were spending more than they were earning. Over $150,000 in personal debt, he was in deep financial stress. They went to a three-day training with T. Harv Eker and  took ownership of their debt. As a result, they got out of debt in nine months. Robert found that his passion was teaching. T. Harv Eker (www.harveker.com) made Robert his first protege', and Robert learned to train people. Robert has trained over a half a million people on these principles. In 2005, T. Harv Eker wrote his book "Secrets of the Millionaire Mind". If you buy the package, one would get 50 copies of the book. It's how he became a bestseller the week the book came out. Rev. Celeste heard Robert talking on Mindvalley (www.mindvalley.com) about VITAL.  VITAL is a master key that can open any door. V is for virtuoso. Being T. Harv's assistant, Robert was serving by doing menial tasks for him with a smile. Become a virtuoso (by learning) and be of service. I is for making an impression. T. Harv asked Robert if he was ready to take over at the end because he made an impression on T. Harv. T stands for tractable. You have to be teachable. A is for Attitude. He keeps a gratitude journal and writes in it daily. COVID has given him deep connections with people he hasn't talked to in years. While doing the gratitude journal, he would think of a person and leave them messages about a memory that changed his life. It didn't matter whether or not they responded. He suggests reaching out to three people a day asking people how they are. Be present in that conversation. That connection may help someone. L is for loyal. Be loyal to your own dreams. Don't give up on yourself.Robert loves to teach. And he's forgiven himself numerous times. He suggests that we learn to be more gentle with ourselves. If you can't love yourself, you can't love others, and you become needy. Appreciate people for who they are and that is a reflection of how you view yourself. People will be attracted to you, not who they want you to be.Robert suggests that you courageously allow life to live you. You get to decide how to respond when crap happens. He overworked and he ended up having three back surgeries. When a dog attacked him, he realized that he wouldn't have been able to use his gift if the dog had reached his jugular. He didn't get angry. He got the lesson that everything happens for a reason and that reason is there to serve me. It gives you the ability to respond favorably.Go to robertriopel.com and download the full digital copy of "Success Left a Clue". He invites you to not let the book sit, but take the actions suggested and become successful. Your life will be elevated to a new level.Listen to Rev. Celeste's poem "Success, Clues and Attitudes".

Rev. Celeste's guest is Petia Kolibova. She helps women who have been playing it small because of toxic relationships or unhealed childhood trauma. Her mission is to help women move through their limiting beliefs and internal blocks, so they can do what they want to do, and serve other women in a powerful way.Petia grew up in the Czech Republic where her father was abusive. She later became suicidal and attempted to take her life because she believed what others told her about who she is. Louise Hay (www.Louise Hay.com) saved her life because when Petia was 28, she was considering suicide again, but she knew something needed to change. Petia Googled learned how to overcome suicidal thoughts and  her eating disorder. She found Louise Hay's information about affirmations and self-love. She started to listening to her and Joe Dispenza (www.DrJoeDispenza.com) and Tony Robbins (www.tonyrobbins.com). They gave her hope that it can get better.Petia said the positive affirmations cannot be just words you say. Louise Hay invited her to go to the mirror and say "I love you". She guided her to say "I am willing and open to accept myself." She learned how to use believable affirmations. When one says I'm a millionaire and you can't pay rent, the subconscious mind will say, that's not true. She came to use phrases that she can believe like "I am always taken care of" or "I am always guided". Petia uses affirmations when she is focusing on something. The practice will change our feelings and those feelings will determine the thoughts we have; and that will determine the steps we take and the results we have.Petia left the corporate world and took her life back. She had an inner feeling that there must be something more and I'm not living it. She felt suffocated and that she was not living her truth. She was always guided. When she didn't listen, she was kicked forward to something better. She believes that God will always leave the bread crumbs for you to follow. She knew she had to be radically honest with herself. She had too many opinions people didn't like, so she was fired from her job. Her basic bills were not covered. She was at a low point. Petia was left with no money, so she helps women to plan. She started a social media marketing agency with two clients. The Universe guided her along every step of the way. She learned to listen to what feels right and true.Petia made a shift when she started her spiritual personal development. She was on her knees crying. She knew she didn't want to live like that. She noticed different progressive nudges. She saw how she was treated. She divorced her unfaithful husband. She decided not to settle for a job where she is not appreciated.Petia always knew she was meant for more. Petia loves doing in-person work. She is moving to Tulum, Mexico and hosting a retreat on 11-11-2021 for men and women with her husband, who coaches men. She works with women one-on-one with their transformations. She has an online mini course called "Unapologetically Worthy" (Mini course (thinkific.com)) for those who are not ready to work with a mentor one-on-one. She helps women to build a strong foundation of self-love and worthiness.  She has a course about abundance for people who want to deepen their relationship with money (Manifest Money Effortlessly Freebie (thinkific.com)).You can find Petia at www.petiakolibova.com. Listen to Rev.

She moved to San Francisco and was reading I Ching (The Complete I Ching — 10th Anniversary Edition: The Definitive Translation by Taoist Master Alfred Huang: Huang, Taoist Master Alfred: 9781594773860: Amazon.com: Books) by the age of 19 and doing Native American Medicine Wheel work soon after. She realized that to become happiest is by approaching it with spirit.In the ancient wisdom (Maya, Celtic, etc.)  work, she has learned there is resonance - one source beyond them all. She learned directions, honoring tree wisdom, honoring the tobacco plant, honoring plant medicine as representations of the divine and gained a new appreciation for the mystical and how to use it for the benefit of the community and the Earth. She applies energy medicine in the UPgrade system to cut the mind-body automatic triggers and she extrapolates out the old patterns to develop new neurological pathways for new choices for permanent change.

The Black Madonna

The Black Madonna

2021-08-0921:11

Rev. Celeste discusses the Black Madonna.  This Goddess has revealed Herself in a plethora of ways - including her powerful energy. Some expressions and historical data of this Divine Feminine are discussed in this episode. Her paintings and statues can be found all over the world and date  back to antiquity (Black Madonna - Wikipedia). Her popular expressions are personified through Our Lady of Guadalupe (Our Lady of Guadalupe - Wikipedia) and Our Lady of Czestochowa (Black Madonna of Częstochowa - Wikipedia). Her earliest expressions are through African goddesses like Isis (The Black Madonna: Isis and The Magdalene: Book IV of The Five Books of Isis ... - Glenn Bogue - Google Books) and Oshun (Oshun - Wikipedia), She reveals to us the many dimensions of the Divine Feminine in nature, and as vulnerability, emerging sexuality, biology and our flowering. The Divine Feminine has been reaching out to Rev. Celeste and Her Energy has her attention. The miracles have not only shown up around the world but in her life as well.Lives have been saved through the Black Madonna as discussed in Allesandro Belloni's book ((12) Healing Journeys with the Black Madonna - YouTube) and experiences. In antiquity, we have Her expressions through Astarte, Ishtar (Ishtar | Goddess, Worship, & Facts | Britannica), the Queen Sheba (Queen of Sheba - Wikipedia) and through the daughter of Jesus, Sarah (Jesus bloodline - Wikipedia), to name a few.After the resurrection, the story is that Mary of Magdala and Jesus, Joseph of Arithmea, the three Mary's, Jesus' brother and the children of Jesus and Mary of Magdala crossed the Mediterranean Sea to the Rome Delta. Though hidden,  stories from the Cathar region of France ( Bérenger Saunière and the Treasure of Rennes-le-Château in the South of France (sacredmysterytours.com)  reveal 12 female disciples as well. Little is known about the children of Jesus because people would not accept the humanity of Jesus, preferring to deify him rather than to acknowledge his Divine Power. Gods and goddesses are depicted in present day as superheroes and fiction while the Divine Energy is within us all. It is said that when the Black Madonnas rise, they will bring back fruit to the tree of life and to Earth. We need that now. When they return, they may not be garbed in an ornate fashion or with a child on the lap, but with the energy of passion and the zest for life. Though she has been distorted in writing, she is deeply connected with the Earth. Her primeval power will not be repressed and will continue to reincarnate until it is integrated in society.  The Sacred Feminine can be seen in the violent outbursts in nature. We have the mastery and primeval power of the Black Madonna. We can wield the healing presence of her daughter, Sarah (Saint Sarah - Wikipedia) to be beneficial to life on this planet. When we recognize this Power, we can recreate the Earth because she is so intrinsically part of us. Listen to the poessay, "Martyr, Bride and Saint" written by Celeste.Support the show (http://paypal.me/rev107)

Celeste is a co-chair of the Program Team for this event.After working in the Civil Rights Movement, D. Jacquelyn knew that business acumen, strong program-based education and skills were necessary, so she studied public administration. Her mother and Rev. Ernie Forks (an early minister at East Bay Church [ebcrs.org]) taught her about Religious Science. In the book, "What Color Is Your Parachute?" (Bolles, Richard N., Brooks EdD, Katharine: 9781984857866: Amazon.com: Books), she noticed ministers, social workers and teachers were in the same corner - service. It was a natural flow for her.While studying for ministry, D. Jacquelyn's class made an impact that resulted in the establishment of a CSL Diversity Commission.  The class discussion on race was explosive. As a result, in 2011, CSL leadership reformatted the annual conference to include more African-American speakers and an educational component on diversity. D. Jacquelyn presented Shakti Butler's (About | World Trust (world-trust.org)) work and some walked out.

Rev. Celeste's guest is Rev. Dr. Sheila McKeithen, the president of Universal Foundation for Better Living (ufbl.org). Rev. Sheila succeeded her mentor, the Rev. Mary Tumpkin. Johnnie Colemon (Johnnie Colemon - Wikipedia) founded UFBL. Sheila is the third president of this 40+-year young organization.  Dr. Sheila was invited by Les Brown to attend the Universal Truth Center for Better Living. She heard Mary preach and she knew she had to come back. Mary was studying to become a minister with Johnnie Colemon and Helen Carry (Christ Universal Temple 'living legend' Rev. Dr. Helen Ward Carry dies - ABC7 Chicago).  Sheila saw what Mary was trying to do and she thought it was so important that she had to help her. Something in Sheila took over and decided to pursue ministry. Sheila was on a different track - as an undercover cop, then a law student, then an attorney.  Mary asked Rev. Sheila to go to Jamaica for six months. Sheila has started her 26th year of ministry.Mary taught Rev. Sheila the importance of study so that you spoke from the overflow of what you had gleaned. You should be so full of the God Wisdom that it overflows. Always keep the well full with study. Rev. Sheila is the Senior Minister of the Universal Center of Truth in Jamaica. Jamaica has more churches per capita than any place in the world, and they are not New Thought churches. She sees progression with the seeds she has planted. She is grateful. But this was not the first New Thought ministry in Jamaica. Unity of Jamaica was there. Temple of Light Religious Science, pastored by Rev. Dr. Elma Lumsden was there.Sheila defied the odds when a doctor told her she had six days to live. Sheila knew the principles could be applied. She used her books, the lessons she learned and she did her spiritual work. She realized that the body is in the Mind and everything took care of itself. Her roommates saw the affirmations in her room and they all went home before her. She realized later that she was there to be a healing influence. She had the faith that whatever happened, she would never be afraid. If you can look death in the face and say you're nothing, everything else is nothing too.Rev. Sheila hears God saying "Stop listening to everyone else and listen to me." Sheila McKeithen remains a licensed attorney. Anyone can be a guardian ad litem for a child who is in the court system. The youth she has supported through the guardian ad litem program and the Big Sister program are doing well. Rev. Sheila is working with the schools helping to provide tablets and get support for the kids.Rev. Sheila's highest vision for New Thought is that we will learn what New Thought is so that we are not apologizing for who we are and how we show up. We are not just a positive thinking movement. The nature of God is good and God is everywhere equally present as that Good! You have to have a core principle from which you work - in order to not be moved by the circumstances of life!Rev. Sheila's book 12 Steps to Your Healing is available on Amazon (12 Steps to Your Healing (Be Still and Know) (Volume 1): McKeithen, Sheila R.: 9780692309261: Amazon.com: Books).Don't give up!

Rev. Celeste's guest is Rev. Marie Kirkland. Rev. Marie is  a licensed minister with the Centers for Spiritual Living. She is the Founder and Spiritual Director of Living Aligned Virtual Ministry (www.livingalignedvirtualministry.org).   Living with an open heart, she inspires sacred conversations that lead to self-discovery. And she facilitates classes that evoke curiosity and empowers individuals to live aligned and forward.Living Aligned means being at home in your own life, not betraying any part of yourself. We need to live our whole life in a way that we can deepen relationships (especially with ourselves and with the God of our understanding). The Living Aligned community has several circles. One is a Spiritual Thought and Leadership Circle - a sacred space for New Thought ministers to come together in conscious leadership to expand and grow together. Other circles are called Living Aligned, Finding Your Voice,  Aligning our Body Temple and Spiritual Pathways.  Living Aligned is an online community where people can create their own experience. They have sacred conversations every Tuesday.Marie is a contributing author to the Amazon Best Selling book, "Speaking Your Truth" (https://www.amazon.com/Speaking-Your-Truth-Courageous-Inspiring-ebook/dp/B005LIDUGW/ref=sr_1_16?). This book is a collaboration where several authors came together. Rev. Marie's contribution is a chapter entitled "Ready to Listen Now". She was working as a manager, mothering via Bluetooth, putting out fires, arranging to attend the kid's concert or game when she had a certain feeling in her chest. She left to go to an urgent care facility. They sent her to the hospital immediately. In the back of the ambulance, she said "I'm ready to listen now". It was a catalyst for change for her.She uses mindfulness as a way of being. She has monk mode in the morning. She does the dailies and spends time in the silence. She does her spiritual practice, such as meditation or journaling, etc. She does her deep work here. In her schedule, she leaves space between appointments to breathe into it. Her health has certainly improved and she is conscious to keep it that way. This path of discovery has been her body temple.Her next book is "Doing Less to Become More". Marie is now working on her doctorate in Spiritual Psychology. In her research, her question is where is the gap in what we currently know? She is an advocate for spiritual communities to live aligned, eliminating burnout for first responders, ministers, social workers, teachers. She is learning the best practices to do that. Marie has served the World Ministry of Prayer in the past and they have a ministry of prayer at Living Aligned. You can submit prayer requests at livingalignedvirtualministry.org and licensed spiritual practitioners will pray for you.Rev. Marie has a podcast called "Living Aligned Living Forward" (‎Living Aligned Living Forward with Marie Kirkland on Apple Podcasts). This podcast is an intimate conversation with the guest (spiritual leaders and cultural creatives) and asking how they are living aligned. What are the lessons have they learned? Sometimes, we bump up against ourselves when we are in an intersection with Truth before us, paradox behind us and fear and faith. REv. Celeste will be on an upcoming episode on that podcast.Reach her at livingalignedcommunity.org or mariekirkland.comListen to Rev.

Rev. Celeste interviews Rev. Karen Fry, one of the Spiritual Leaders of Centers for Spiritual Living, Dallas. She's a Science of Mind minister who has a genuine love for all life. Rev. Karen is known for her prosperity consciousness and she is committed to living an abundant life! Karen's father taught her that nothing was hers. She gets to have the energy - the current of life. Money is an expression of this current. She gets to play with this limitless expression. There cannot be a limit in the money. In the 2008 recession, she made more money than she's ever made in her life selling a medical device using spiritual principles. She had a no ceiling income and later became a salaried minister. She did not see herself as limited because she is vigilant in keeping her consciousness aware of unlimited possibilities. She has an e-course called "Money is God in Action". We have to uproot the lies of the past and place our focus on living limitless. Rev. Celeste mentioned Edwene Gaines (https://edwenegaines.wwwhubs.com), who is a prosperity teacher who walks on fire. Karen watched her colleagues in Asheville, NC walk on fire and it was so transformative that she brought the instructor to Dallas. She realized this is for her. She went to Tolly Burkan (tollyburkan.com), who trained Tony Robbins to firewalk, and learned to firewalk from a spiritual perspective because she wants to help people break through barriers. Karen is a certified fire walking instructor. In New Zealand, she bungee jumped off a bridge knowing that the Universe's umbilical cord has her. She saw an energy of lights and held the vision that all is well. It was very freeing. She wants us to know not to let fear stop us, knowing That which is greater than me can do anything.Rev. Karen Fry discovered she had breast cancer seven months after accepting a position as co-spiritual leader and moving to Dallas. Karen used all of her spiritual tools and did a big universal "no" to the cancer. The cancer went away as she forgave herself and moved deeper into loving herself. She asked for the lesson, and rose above the statistics to became cancer-free. Once she fell inlove with herself, she found the love of her life, Rev. Dr. Petra Weldes.Karen started a "Be Love - Pass It On" movement in 2014 after a meditation where she realized that she came here to be boundless love. She made wristbands and t-shirts. It went over really well with teens and others. She continues to ask the question, how can I be love in this moment? The Science of Mind Archives in Colorado has a lot of history and information about spiritual principle. Karen became a member of the board in order for the teachings of Ernest Holmes to last (scienceofmindarchives.com).Rev. Karen is involved with Faith Forward Dallas, an organization that started with Imam Omar Suleiman and AME pastor,  Rev. Michael Waters. People come from different faiths and traditions to stand together.  Starting with the muslim ban, they have stood together at Botham Jean's murder, removed confederate statues in Dallas and gone to the border to support child immigrants with Rev. William Barber. The four areas of focus are immigration, racial equity, gun sense and unsheltered housing solutions.  She finds magic in her life when she is photographing wildlife. It's the closest thing to oneness as she looks through the lens of love at nature. She also finds magic in her 11-month young granddaughter watching her be excited about life in such a pure and joyful way.  Karen finds magic in traveling with Petra.Check out the amazing Science of Mind class at CSL Dallas with Karen's partner, Rev. Dr. Petra Weldes Fry (csldallas.org) or learn to firewalk with Rev. Karen Fry.Listen to Rev. Celeste's poem, Breakouts and Breakthroughs.Support the show (http://paypal.me/rev107)

Rev, Celeste's guest is Rev. Ruth Littlejohn, a Religious Science minister, a leadership and spiritual coach, who specializes in personal development and  is a diversity practitioner. Ruth presents workshops as well. Rev. Ruth is a calming presence who helps to reduce stress and create a safe environment. Rev. Ruth grew up in a traditional church. She was born before her mother was married, so she carried herself as a sin. It wasn't until years later when she walked into a Science of Mind center (scienceofmind.com) in Philadelphia that she was set free. She took a class that told her there was nothing she could do that would have her not be whole, perfect and magnificent. She realized that if she does the work and continues to study, she can live in Heaven now.Ruth was successful in the business arena. But after she became awakened to her magnificence, she recognized barriers to bringing her whole self to work. Around 2000, she chose to do work differently. Known as a client whisperer, her clients feel heard and safe. The way that Ruth energizes is being quiet and alone and listening.If graded, Ruth would give the U.S. a "C" in diversity. In inclusivity, the U.S. would receive a "D", an "F" in equity and a "D" in justice. We've put people in place, but people are not being treated appropriately. We can get better in touch with internalized racism. She works with Champion Fleming in doing racial circles.  Ruth gives people the experience for them to get in touch with what's going on, and gives them practices to help them change. She is holding the space for them to get in touch with their greatness.We've done the window dressing. Now it's time for structural change.  How can we move past our supremacy roots and unravel that? Rev. Ruth thinks we need to forgive ourselves and the country. Then, we need to give reparations. There are some outstanding debts that have got to be paid, and that may include education and mental health. South Africa had significant conversations that helped their healing. Dr. Martin Luther King, Vernon Jordan (Vernon Jordan - Wikipedia), and John Lewis (John Lewis - Wikipedia) did great work but we need to heal the wound now. That will make a difference for us.Ruth is a personal development junkie doing things like Landmark, sweat lodges (Sweat lodge - Wikipedia), and fire walking. An adventuress, Ruth did the fire walk with Tony Robbins group (tonyrobbinsfirewalk.com) to relight the passion within her. She believes you can push yourself without measuring yourself with others. She helps people to develop and sustain a spiritual practice. We need to let something go in order to  create a space for the spiritual practice. There were no women ministers in her family, so it took her a while to accept her ministry even after graduating with a ministerial degree. As the result of visioning, Ruth moved to Virginia Beach and started the Hampton Roads Center for Spiritual Living. After five years, she was complete and resigned in 2018. Rev. Victoria Thomas came from Agape to become their minister. The center left CSL (csl.org) and became Agape East (agapeeast.org).Ruth was taught to go to school to get a good job, and one must work harder to prevail. Now she knows she doesn't have to work hard, and that she is more than enough. You can find Rev. Ruth on LinkedIn (Ruth Littlejohn, M.Ed., M.S., M.A. | LinkedIn), on Facebook at Ruth Littlejohn, LLC or at ruth@ruthlittlejohn.comListen to Rev.

How's Your Loving?

How's Your Loving?

2021-03-1615:19

Rev. Celeste discusses Love. She begins with mentioning the song "I've Got Love on My Mind" by Natalie Cole (Natalie Cole - I've Got Love On My Mind Lyrics | AZLyrics.com). But she doesn't speak of longing or romance. She does speak of feeling confident expressing Love. The motivating factor of being loved can put us in a mindset of trading love. She is not speaking about the method of loving or the way one wants to be treated, which appear to be conditional or ego-based. Love is unconditional by nature.She speaks about the energy of Love. She references the Dalai Lama (https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=Dalai+Lama+%2b+how+well+did+you+love&qpvt=Dalai+Lama+%2b+how+well+did+you+love&FORM=IGRE) asking how well did you love?  Being in touch with Love is to be in touch with Spirit. Spirit is Love. She explores loving unconditionally. Fear gets in the way of loving. Trust is a key ingredient in actively loving. She talks about feeling safe or unsafe. Rev. Celeste references the bible quote: "Perfect Love casts out all fear" (1 John 4:18 NIV - There is no fear in love. But perfect - Bible Gateway) and she talks about loving from a distance. You are lovable. Even betrayal cannot cause me to stop loving you. We must not rely on behavior as a condition for loving.She references the "A Course in Miracles" quote about anger and separation: "Anger always involves projection of separation which must ultimately be accepted as one's responsibility" (A Course In Miracles - Text: Chapter 6 - Introduction (acimi.com)).  No one can "make you mad". We somehow believe that we can be attacked. To separate, one must be afraid.  We must have a belief that we are destructible. What you believe is what you will teach by how you live your life.She quotes Howard Thurman on love from his poem, "The Greatest of These":  "The fruit it bears sustains the nerve...breaks the chain of fear... condemns the things that shrink the soul... (For the Inward Journey: The Writings of Howard Thurman - Howard Thurman - Google Books). Love is precious, intrinsic and is in the texture of our nature.She quotes Ernest Holmes saying: this life is "dominated by love" (The Essential Ernest Holmes - Google Books) and states that, in our interactions, we notice love.  And she quotes Ernest Holmes speaking of how we have not "interpreted the Light of Love running through life" . Love allows us to see. She also quotes Ernest Holmes saying "Love is at the center of man's being".  Everything about us is governed by Love.She quotes Rumi "If the Beloved is everything, the lover is a veil".   God is Love.Celeste reads her poem "How Are You Lovin'?"Support the show (http://paypal.me/rev107)

Rev. Celeste's guest is Rev. Brian Akers. Rev. Brian has been involved in the New Thought Movement since 1992. Born and raised in California, Rev. Brian was raised by his single father. Growing up socio-economically near the bottom of the scale, and being a white male, he found the benefit of using his confrontational nature to approach things he cares about.When Brian moved to Baltimore, it was around the time of the murder of Freddie Gray. This  radicalized Brian to get involved with racial equity issues.  He got involved with BUILD (Baltimoreans United In Leadership Development)(buildiaf.org) and crashed a Finance Committee meeting to get to meet with the City Council and the Sheriff Department around this issue. Realizing that he was raised in a hotbed of White supremacy, Brian began to look at the advantages he had and became aware of his remorse of his Whiteness. He referenced prideful White folks who don't want to feel guilt or shame for racism. Brian took the time to become anti-racist (Being Antiracist | National Museum of African American History and Culture (si.edu)) and consciously remorseful, realizing the privilege he enjoys in his life. He invites others to discover their Whiteness but not to be thrust into a shame-filled guilt-ridden experience, but to  be consciously remorseful. It's irrational not to explore the natural remorse.Rev. Brian works with PATH (PATH IAF – People Acting Together in Howard), to cultivate power and drive policy. He works with Community Resources and Services in Howard County to do coat drives and count the number of homeless people. He also works Columbia Community Care (columbiacare.live) who helps to feed children at the schools.  He likes to work with people who are directly addressing the community. He lobbies to organize things like affordable housing, and to get tax breaks for people on leased land.  He seeks to drive policy to address a local need.Rev. Brian has created a denomination called Oneness New Thought (onenessnt.org)). He loves the theology of Religious Science, but he wanted to create a religion of choice - not to be the only religion or the best religion or the right religion, but to have a specific religious approach to Religious Science principles. It's both a religion and a system for spiritual living.  This denomination has four pillars: core principles, divine virtues, concepts of creation and immortality and specific spiritual practices . It has a supportive structure with accountability. He wanted and needed a place that was a community for himself that is built with both accessible  articulation of what they believe and allows people to practice the faith in their own way. Their spiritual practices are prayer, reflection,  meditation, envisioning,  study, community and generosity. He seeks conscious collaboration has studied conscious capitalism (2020 Home - Conscious Capitalism), built on generosity and having a higher purpose. He also works with the Howard County Association of Realtors (HCAR.org) and the Laurel  Multiservice Center. They also discuss capitalism and socialism.  We are being taken care of my our Creator. We see tangible evidence of this through humanity.Find out more about the purveyor of badassery - a cannabis positive, sex positive, martial artist, at itsreallyreal.com and Facebook.Oneness New Thought has online services on Sundays at 12 pm ET.Listen to Rev.

My Country Tis of Thee

My Country Tis of Thee

2021-01-1116:52

Rev. Celeste A. Frazier presents a solo show discussing Freedom and Justice as divine qualities juxtaposed against freedom and justice in America . "My Country Tis of Thee" (America (My Country, 'Tis of Thee) - Wikipedia) is the both the backdrop and the title of her discourse.Rev. Celeste A. Frazier is a natural-born citizen. Having lived in the United States as her home for over 63 years, she has noticed the hesitancy of many to accept Black people. She shares her life-long exploration of the meaning of freedom. Although there is much propagation that this country supports freedom, equality and justice for all, there is an abundance of suppression, bias and inequity. Rev. Celeste recognizes Freedom as a spiritual quality graciously given to us by our Creator. Juxtaposing this Truth, she shares the story of Keyon Harold, a 14-year old, who was accosted and wrongfully accused by a White woman  of stealing her phone. (Woman accused of attacking teen in NY hotel arrested after fleeing, boy's family speaks out - ABC News (go.com). Celeste questions the young man's emotional freedom as he is now in therapy. Celeste looks at the hateful events that occurred in Washington, D.C. this week  and wonders why the perpetrators felt free to bust out the windows of the Capital and violate precious places where Congress meets. She describes fear as the motivating emotion, not Love.We share Creativity, another attribute of God, given to us to expand our spirit and gain a greater understanding of ourselves. Celeste shares her own personal challenge with her ego and the instinct to defend or retaliate. She references "A Course in Miracles" (acim.org) which invites us to forgive; but forgiveness may not be delayed while we are on our journey of learning. She indicates that we can take the injury and create a story, presume intentions, create a case and move further into separation - which is the opposite of Freedom and Oneness. She identifies fear as the culprit because the "attack" actually occurs in our minds.Rev. Celeste questions what she would want to reconcile at her moment of death. She shares the trauma of being a Black woman contemplating the deaths of Breonna Taylor (Shooting of Breonna Taylor - Wikipedia) and Ahmaud Arbery  (What We Know About the Shooting Death of Ahmaud Arbery - The New York Times (nytimes.com) while living in a White neighborhood alone.Exploring isolation and exile, Rev. Celeste references Nelson Mandela (Nelson Mandela - Biographical - NobelPrize.org) and the Dalai Lama (Freedom in Exile - Wikipedia) and recognizes that we can only be free in our minds.Celeste looks at the word "united" and wonders if she will see her country truly united in her lifetime.  Once, she believed it had been achieved when President Barack Obama (Racism During Barack Obama Presidency - Washington Post) was elected, but that served to only stoke the division.Celeste is grateful for the recent discoveries of loopholes and gaps in justice so those can be resolved.She recognizes the journey of her soul is to trust and invites us to seek God in each other - all of us!Rev. Celeste's poem is entitled "My Country Tis of Thee". Support the show (http://paypal.me/rev107)
Rev. Celeste's guest is Rev. Jeffrey Kealoha Ryan, the Senior  Minister and Spiritual Director of the Riverside Center for Spiritual Living (riversidecsl.org), and a social justice advocate. He seeks to connect deeply, live consciously and live fiercely. He and his husband, Ed Ryan, met at a spiritual class in Las Vegas, NV.Riverside CSL is diverse and wanted to be more socially active. Rev. Jeffrey's passion came from his grandmother, who taught him compassion. Observing the constant caretaking, compassion and being in service was part of his family and the way they nurtured. He's always been an advocate of making things better. He's always had a sense of wanting to give back.Shortly after Rev. Jeffrey came to the Riverside CSL community, it was just after the children were separated from their parents at the border. The Riverside community put together a vigil for "Families Belong Together" (https://www.familiesbelongtogether.org/) with the Riverside Resistance Revival Chorus and other interfaith organizations. Out of that, he works with Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity. They go to Adelanto Detention Center (http://adelanto-immigration-inmate-info.com/), the state's largest detention center. They accompany asylum seekers to help secure freedom, helping to secure bonds and doing vigils. Riverside's Social Justice program expanded into their neighbors who are experiencing homelessness, foster care, and foster youth. The intersectionality of those things have common roots. They work with other non-profit organizations.Rev. Celeste remembers there being a homeless issue there when she was an intern there 15 years ago. Riverside is a Housing First city. They focus on getting residents into permanent housing. Rev. Jeffrey was one of the original board members of the Riverside chapter of Family Promise who helps family experiencing homelessness. (https://www.facebook.com/FamilyPromiseRiverside/). They also work with Path of Life, the largest local shelter/agency that provides wraparound services (https://www.homelessshelterdirectory.org/cgi-bin/id/shelter.cgi?shelter=11816). Now they have the Office of Homeless Solutions working with Path of Life, with congregations and the three universities in the area that have social work programs. The social work interns are being imbedded in the communities and providing outreach from within the communities themselves.Riverside CSL has a social work intern from one of the universities. The intern is helping to create programs, find solutions and provide services. Riverside CSL sits in a neighborhood and is also right next to Fairmont Park (the largest park in the city). The intern is modifying the Riverside CSL campus to make it safer for their neighbors as well as for the neighbors experiencing homelessness. They have been doing conscious conversations at Riverside CSL, a diverse and inclusive community. They work with Inland Congregations United for Change (https://icucpico.com/) and Time Done (https://timedone.org/) to support our brothers and sisters and siblings who have been impacted by the system and who have been released back into society, helping to support them with providing services, working on  expungement issues and working to change policy and at the state and local level as well. Rev. Celeste appreciates Rev. Jeffrey being an ally to her. Diversity and Inclusion was a part of his life growing up in Hawaii. He started his racial awareness work while teaching in a Japanese high school where there was overt and covert racism. He used the PBS documentary series, "Eyes on the Prize" with Japanese subtitles and using Jane Elliott's experiment giving them different colored arm bands to educate them on racial issues.Rev. Celeste shares her poem entitled "We Belong to Each Other".Support the show (http://paypal.me/rev107)

Rev. Derrick B, Wells, Senior Minister of Christ Universal Temple ("CUT") (cutemple.org) is our guest today on Mystic Magic. He and Rev. Celeste cover many topics including Derrick's redemption story from his journey as a young urban male. His naivety at that time that led him into a life of crime left when he started to meet the consequences of his decisions. His transformation came from changing his thinking. He so thoroughly changed himself, realigned his energy and rewired himself to follow the pull to his next greatest self. During his time in the navy as a young man in his early 20's, he would lead Islamic prayers, and young couples would come to him for relationship advice and many shipmates came to him with their challenges. Derrick realized later in his life that his time in the military was laying the foundation for his ministry in counseling and coaching. Although leadership was natural for him, he didn't think he was gifted. He thought it was the way you were supposed to treat people.Rev. Celeste and Rev. Derrick discussed how to guide young Black men during these times with the goal of getting home. He shared how his son challenged him. After the George Floyd murder, his son asked what if that happened to him. Rev. Derrick assured him they were covered by prayer. He forced Derrick to deal with the possibility of it happening to one of his friends. Rev. Derrick had to re-evaluate what he would do in terms of his own personal engagement of being part of the solution.Derrick's book, "Guidelines for a Master" (https://www.amazon.com/Guidelines-Master-Dr-Derrick-Wells/dp/1544262302) pulls from "The Last Dragon" martial arts film (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089461/). Celeste and Derrick discussed centering, mindfulness and engaging in a major challenge. Jesus' centered awareness knows God is - regardless of the situation. We ground ourselves in Peace when entering into the storm. Derrick mentioned Gary Simmon's "I of the Storm" (https://www.amazon.com/Storm-Embracing-Conflict-Creating-Peace/dp/0871592703) book as they are studying it now at CUT.They discussed police officers using mastery in policing in their own community versus succumbing to fear in other areas. Celeste has many police officers in her family. She calls it all part of the transformation that is leading to healing.Rev. Derrick took the pulpit established by Rev. Johnnie Mae Colemon (https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-johnnie-colemon-obituary-met-20141224-story.html). Rev. Derrick's commitment to unearth his authentic self helped him to meet the challenge of successfully navigating the pulpit of the icon Johnnie Colemon.Find Derrick on Facebook on Wednesday evenings at 7 pm for "Temple Talks" (https://www.facebook.com/revderrickwells). He gave shouts out to his Mission Critical team members, Revs. Roderick Norton (https://www.empowerliving.org/roderick-n-norton-spiritual-director/) and Gaylon McDowell (https://www.chicagoideas.com/speakers/gaylon-mcdowell). Derrick also mentioned his upcoming e-book: "Six Keys to Design Your Life" that comes with an e-course to intentionally design your life. He does spiritual coaching.

2020-09-1824:44

Rev. Celeste's guest is Vaugn Taylor, the founder and Chief Purpose Officer of The Core Guide Center (www.coreguidecenter.com). The Core Guide Center offers tools for anyone to use to learn how to pause, surrender, let go, heal and mature emotionally, and begin the journey of being present, all while learning self-care, one thought at a time. Vaugn has over 30 years of experience studying energy, spirituality, and recovery.For years, Rev. Celeste has been receiving Daily Vibrations from Vaugn every morning affirming a conscious choice to be present with herself and move toward a greater wholeness. The Daily Vibrations are affirmations that invite us to go within. Vaugn started getting these messages back in 2012.She realized that the world doesn't guide her. The Core Guide is within her center. We all want a solid structure, but rather than look for it outside of us, we can find it inside. Vaugn thinks the impetus is to learn how to pause, in a quiet way, so she can understand. There's a different language we all speak energetically and healing wise. When she hears her next tool, it takes her inside and there's a calmer solution. Celeste said when she can't find something, she looks inside. It's the last place she looks.Vaugn realized Spirit looks forward but the mind looks back. She tries to catch herself when she is trying to bring yesterday forward. She began unlayering the generational influences and nourishing the collection of tools. When Celeste asked her how Ancient Wisdom has influenced her work, Vaugn replied, "It's all ancient wisdom". Vaugn realized that when she's heard enough, she becomes willing to change. Then, the ancient wisdom applies right to exactly where she is and what she's going through. If she spent a little less time in denial, pushing away the Truth and just make a little room, it lands on her.Celeste thinks we don't push the Truth away consciously. We may think we have a better idea than God, for some reason. Vaugn says she began to realize the generational trends. She saw that her generation is doing it differently because we are forced to, and thank God for that. Everything we do gives the next generation an opportunity to get there sooner. Each generation can progressively support the next one.Vaugn's references in her bio are to helping women, so Celeste asked if it is also applicable to men. Vaugn works with a lot of men, but she has met so many amazing, talented women who suffer from low self-esteem. Many women would like to be like them, and the very person they want to be is not enjoying her own life. Women are a strong essence of the new movement forward. A Course in Miracles says I teach someone and they teach me (acim.org). The men that have done her work have worked just as hard, if not harder - because men may be a little more vulnerable.Celeste said the egoic mind gets us in trouble and it's the Wisdom - the Sofia Mind, that pulls us forward.Vaugn didn't trust herself. Vaugn went to her emotion coach and realized the glory of growing and getting closer to her heart. Celeste asked what an emotions coach is. Vaugn finds value in therapy, but sometimes just needs help with spot emotions. When she began this, she wanted to be in the ballpark of having appropriate emotions. She sought to build her relationship with Truth.She is the author of "Go Vertical, A Guide to Letting Go workbook" that provides a framework for individuals to Let Go, Love, and Expand their lives. In addition, her program “Level Up Self-Care,” offers a 4 step guide for women to discover their power, light, and Highest good, one thought at a time.Where Vaugn once lived a life of chaos with moments of Peace, she now lives a life of Peace with moments of chaos.Celeste's poem is called "Level Up".Support the show (http://paypal.me/rev107)

Rev. Celeste's guest is Sky Nelson-Isaacs, theoretical physician, composer, author, speaker, composer and musician (https://skynelson.com/). Sky's take on physics is a means to understand the world, the laws of nature and our own lives. His upcoming book is "Leap to Wholeness - How to World is Programmed to Help Us Grow, Heal, and Adapt" (https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/659308/leap-to-wholeness-by-sky-nelson-isaacs/). Sky has observed us seeing what is dividible into smaller parts while missing the entirety of life and wholeness.Sky yearns for us to be at peace by choosing the lives we want to live and deciding who we want to be. Sky thinks we need to be choosers rather than actors or doers. He sees the need for us integrating rather than separating from each other. Sky says we have an opportunity to sit with grief - either about our unfulfilled parts, injustice or death of a loved one. And we can feel the hole then use grief as a transformational tool so that when we see others suffering, we can step outside of our comfort zone.Celeste spoke to the abundant number of lives lost during this time and job losses. Sky thinks we can be curious and courageous. He tends to look to the natural world for answers. We have problems, frustrations and sadness. But we can use a relational view - as quantum mechanics informs us. While Sky defined the questioner as the witness, Celeste queried further and Sky knew that she was speaking of the Authentic Source of Power.Sky wants us to make a difference, be engaged and embrace the synergy. He seeks more empathy and less attachment to form. And he may grieve the loss of white men holding the power but is he wants us to integrate with people of color for the sake of equity. He could grieve from the shift of the United States losing its perceived leadership in economics and culture, but he would prefer to welcome something better.They discussed loss and expansion and how we can move from mental perceptions to grief where images are shattered. Conversations can break down when people are constructing questions in order to get a certain answer. Another option is to have gratitude for each other and be open to each other's views. Vulnerability gives us an opportunity to look for what many of us are unwilling to reveal. Sky wants to know how are you hurt, not how defensive you can be. He wants to be present with all of your layers of personality and be with your core self. He is not interested in the layers of programming and protection.Celeste inquired about Sky's Zen philosophy that he studied from a very young age. Sky sees the two (physics and Zen) as very similar. Both are abut the ephemeral nature of the world, that which is unspoken. We do a lot of probing of nature.Music helps Sky feel whole. The piano is like a pen for him. It's familiar and he uses it to express. It brings a synchronicity to him, where he is in flow. Music is a practice for him that is healing and allows for an understanding of himself. Quantum mechanics helps us understand the nature of our relationships and interpret the world. Running experiments with possible answers, we are experimenters. Flow happens when we lose track of self-consciousness. This is a fuller self expression that brings empathy, helps us heal and align with our inner drive. We can believe in a world that we want. Rev. Celeste said what Sky calls flow, she calls oneness.Look for Sky's new book, "Leap to Wholeness". Find pre-sales on Amazon, get the e-book or go to the book's website (above). Sky's other book "Living in Flow" is also available for sale (https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/595348/living-in-flow-by-sky-nelson-isaacs/ or go to Uthrivehere.com to get the "Living In Flow" course.Find Sky's music at SkyNelson.comSupport the show (http://paypal.me/rev107)

Rev. Gaylon McDowell is the Senior Assistant Minister and Executive Minister at the Christ Universal Temple ("CUT") (http://cutemple.org/). There are several ministers on the staff, but Gaylon is the right arm of the Senior Minister, Rev. Derrick B. Wells. Gaylon handles whatever needs to be done when Rev. Wells is not available, and runs the staff and ministries, such as Men Expressing Christ and the Ambassadors of Love (among many other ministries). Rev. McDowell is also the Director of the Johnnie Coleman Institute, the educational department of CUT.Gaylon is the host of "Truth Transforms", on Unity Online Radio (https://www.unityonlineradio.org/), a position he has held for 8 1/2 years. He started out as a guest on Rev. Jamie Sanders show (unityofpensacola.org/jamie-sanders). When Denise Blake (who was the Network Manager of Unity Online Radio at the time) heard him, she thought he would be a good host. Gaylon presented his concepts and had a show days after he was a guest. He is grateful that he has the opportunity to share the New Thought message. Gaylon teaches New Thought books chapter by chapter. Because some people don't have access to the pure teachings, countries around the world send contributions to CUT in gratitude for how he changed people's lives.Gaylon came into to this teaching listening to Les Brown when he mother had it on while cooking. He later heard Dennis Kimbro and Rev. Johnnie Colemon (http://thepmshow.tv/channel/spirtual-development/the-first-lady-of-new-thought-metaphysics-the-reverend-doctor-johnnie-colemon/). Once he heard Johnnie, he started going to the church. He was thirsty to understand the teachings. Gaylon had a life-threatening bout with asthma at the age of 20 and while the doctor insisted on inhalers and medicine, Gaylon was determined to be sure the healing teachings work. He threw away the medicine and told his mother that he was going to prove these teachings or be out of here. His mother transitioned in 2010, but he often wonders now how she felt when he said that. Gaylon would be disturbed if his now adult daughter said such a thing to him!Gaylon admittedly had a chip on his shoulder as a young adult who was teaching and preaching before he had even gone to ministerial school. He found himself on the preaching roster while he was customer service manager at Dominics, managing 80 or so people. While thousands attended CUT, he was the age of most of the people's children and grandchildren and he wanted to be taken seriously. He refused to allow anyone to disrespect his knowledge base. And to quote him, "No one is ever going to outprepare him". He was one of the young lions (together with Derrick Wells and Roderick Norton). The young men were speaking at major venues like the Panorama of Truth (panoramaoftruth.org) while they were in their mid 20's. He now knows that he can be excellent without the edge and is more relaxed because he is respected for his ministry.Revs. Celeste and Gaylon discuss Rev. Johnnie Mae Colemon, the lady with the big purse, her dream series, her prosperity principles and her influence on him. They also discuss Universal Foundation for Better Living (https://ufbl.org/), which Johnnie founded in 1974. UFBL is in the United States, Canada, several Carribean countries and in South America.Rev. McDowell also shares some of the principles of New Thought, his new book, "Truth Transforms", his seat on the UFBL Board for nine years and his perspective on martial arts. Gaylon loves the discipline of the martial arts where you understand your being in order to execute the technique. Gaylon is on "Truth Transforms" on Wednesdays from 10 am to 11 am Central. Find him also by visiting the CUT website and Facebook page. He teaches on Facebook Wednesdays and Fridays at noon Central Time.Support the show (http://paypal.me/rev107)

Rev. Celeste's guest is Grammy award winner, songwriter, singer, choir director, sound healer, music teacher, Darlene Koldenhoven. They discuss some of Darlene's adventures and experiences as well as share some of her expertise in the healing field of music. Darlene was a studio singer and the music supervisor at Disney knew her rep for conducting choirs and ask her to make girl group songs into hymns and hymns into girl group tunes (such as "I Will Follow Him" and "My God"). Later, Disney wanted to add ringers into the choir of actresses and called her in on the spot to audition. Her resume and look impressed them. Two weeks later, Casting called and said the Director would like to see you now. Emilio said he heard she was really good at wrangling people and teaching them how to sing and they wanted to hire her on the spot, but she wanted to think about it. She had to give up six months of studio singing but she did both Sister Act and the sequel, Sister Act 2. She knew it would be a hit when an extra said "If church was like this, I'd go back to church." 26 years later, the films are classics.How is Darlene is able to create such beautiful music? Darlene gets herself into a beautiful vibration, prays and asks God: let me be your vessel. And What do people need to hear? She says "Work through me. Let me be Your Voice. She creates calming music.She's never had an agent or a manager. She says God is her manager.When writing music, singing and recording music, the creativity is very spiritual. She doesn't think of it being a hit song. For her this is her gift. This is her blessing. She's responsible for bringing in calmness, nurturing the spiritual aspect before she records. Mystic Magic!Through her international travel, Darlene noticed glaciers were disapppearing and the high tides came in and water is on all the streets. Darlene decided to do environmental justice work and took Former Vice President Al Gore's Climate Reality leadership training (www.climaterealityproject.org). She's done workshops and spoke regarding saving the planet. Rev. Celeste brought her to Oakland last year to do so. Her albums "Color Me Home" and Chromotones" are based on the planet and what it means to us. We have to get on this climate thing quickly - pronto. We need people who are concerned in leadership to guide us. We may have five years left to do something - we must get busy.Although Darlene has made ten albums, works in film, television and online, she does sound healing work. She likes to help people. She just did a Sound Healing Summit for the Shift Network a few weeks ago. She really likes to turn people onto that. She has a quartz crystal tuning fork and 12 various sizes of singing bowls. They tested laboratory cancer cells and playing the piano, placing a dissonant interval space between two notes, they found in 21 minutes, the cancer dissolved. If you have a group of people singing, that only takes nine minutes and the cells start to fall apart. People who have atrial fibrilation and the heart rate is crazy, start singing in long tones. Take another breath and it helps if it's an F note. In less than five minutes, the heart rate will come down. Darlene created a music education program to share her knowledge because singing is so great and energizes you. She wrote her book with seven CD (and MP3 downloads), called "Tune Your Voice - Singing in Your Mind's Musical Ear".  It's a self-help program for people who want to sing. You become a better listener and communicator. It makes a grid for your brain of how music is organized. There are many illnesses that can be healed through different vibrations (from dyslexia to ADD and Autism to memory loss and depression).

Rev. Celeste interviews Rev. Dr. Raymont Anderson, spiritual leader of the Center for Spiritual Living Greater Baltimore. He's got a passion for self-development, for personal transformation and for self-awakening. His bliss is to be a teacher, a mentor, a speaker, a minister and more! His mission is to educate, elucidate, emancipate and empower people. He teaches workshops and classes and is an author!Growing up with a fundamental Christian background, he was taught that LGBTQIA people were sinners and abominations. But he is clear that it is just the opposite. He read many books, including "Gay is a Gift" by Salvatore Sapienza (https://www.amazon.com/Gay-Gift-Salvatore-Sapienzabook/dp/B0030ZRZDM/ref=sr_1_1dchild=1&keywords=Gay+Is+A+Gift&qid=1598377726&sr=8-1) so he now knows that being LGBTQIA  is miraculous, marvelous and fantastic and he wants to support people in being bold, unapologetic and magnificent in their gayness. For those who are depressed due to spiritual or religious oppression, he wants to encourage them to shine brightly. Rev. Celeste gave him kudos for facing it head on and she shared her spiritual breakthrough and how she released her self-inflicted racism, sexism and homophobia. Rev. Anderson reminded us of the Audre Lorde quote: “There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives.” We are grateful for ministries that support people unconditionally.Rev. Dr. Raymont Anderson has had an eclectic spiritual path. While being a licensed CSL minister, there is also an intersection where shamanistic training, magic and reiki are some of the tools that assist him in being a better person. After a tumultous series of life challenges (including a death and breakup), he discovered that reiki is a cousin to chi and he studied to become a reiki master to keep his channel clear, keep his chakras open, his consciousness open and his thoughts pristine and life affirming. He intends to keep his cup full.The discovery of a distant relative who is Native opened up his exploration into shamanism andd to learning about being a medicine person. He was advised to tread gently upon the Earth and do what you are here to do.Raymont is a retired interpretor for the members of the deaf community. He bridges the gaps to meaningful living by giving access through interpreting for them. Rev. Celeste complimented him on how he handles racially insensitive colleagues. He learned patience from clueless high school teachers and administrators who thought they could engage Black students by giving them music to dance.Raymont was the creator of S.T.A.R.S. (Sticking Together Always Results in Success) to support non-hearing people performing in plays. He also created B.E.L.I.E.V.E. (Being Empowered Living Inspired Exemplifying Victory Everyday) bringing the theatrical opportunities to the non-hearing performers.Rev. Raymont got into martial arts because he was bullied as a child. He saw his first Bruce Lee films (double feature) and he immediately started studying it. He saw martial arts as a spiritual path first and as a way to support his well-being. Fighting was never his intention.Comic books were his escape from an abusive home. He started using the comic books as modern day mythology, the study of the human journey. We can use the gifts and power for good.Ray is a visual artist and is ready to re-invent himself, explore creativity from his dreams and share it.Find him at www.raymontanderson.com or on Facebook and at cslgreaterbaltimore.orgRev. Celeste shares her poem, "Super Heroes and Human Victories".Support the show (http://paypal.me/rev107)
