Oneness Ministry

We are One

Merry Christ-Mas!

This is a reposting of a blog from 2012, but when you get something right it is timeless.  Please take some time alone this season and sit in silence while focusing on all the blessing of the year, make a list if you feel so moved.  Have a very Merry Christ-Mas!

Our favorite time of year is upon us again, especially if you are a youngster or still feel so.  It is a time of giving, sharing, and togetherness.  This does not require family, but it does require a willing to give of self.  It is easy to find those who need love through simple acknowledgement and/or attention.  A small gift of time or material substance is all it takes to let them know they are important.  To move beyond this point let us look deeper to the heart of the holiday.

This is the time of year when we are reminded of Christ consciousness and its relationship to our lives.  The very word itself is an indication of what this season is all about.  Christ in metaphysical terms means centered or anointed one.  The word “mas” in Spanish means “more”.   So thus we have it in simple terms.  This season is about getting more centered and the word “anoint” means to dedicate to the service of God or in other words, to make sacred and whole.

The ceremony (Christmas eve/Christmas morning) is a way of connecting to Spirit and setting intentions.  It is an acknowledgment of Oneness with God (Great Spirit, Universal Oneness, Goddess, etc).  The symbology is important this season because when you share gifts it is a way of saying to the recipient, “you are sacred to me”.  On Christmas morning you are anointing those you love with gifts.  The actual item is far less important than the Loving intention (Christ consciousness) that goes into the gift.  The gift is in the giving!

When thought of in this manner the Spirit of Christ Mas is brought to life!  This year when you are sitting around the tree (yule log, menorah, or whatever) and sharing gifts, share also the Christ Consciousness.  In short, move outside yourself (ego mind) and connect with the One (God) which is present in each person in your life.

This is how Santa delivers millions of presents all in one night!  Through Christ Consciousness the Spirit works through each of us!! May you be Blessed this season 😉

Silent Night

The truest gift of Christmas is the opportunity to enjoy The Spirit within the Silence.  Connection with Source energy is something we all instinctually know how to do.  It is not something you can teach, so this message is a reminder and tribute to this fantastic experience that comes but once a year,… unless you claim it every day.

Thinking back over my last 50 Christmas’s one experience stands out above all the rest.  Please join me here as we revisit this moment of deep unbridled Joy.  The traditions of Christmas are many and one in particular touches my heart each year, the Christmas tree.  It is a symbol of reverence to all life and has always played the center piece at Christmas throughout my life.  No matter where I am or what the circumstances are, I manage to get a few minutes alone with the Christmas tree.

The Christmas tree symbolizes eternal life in its evergreen nature and green color.  The triangle shape denotes the Holy Trinity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  The tree points up and has a star at the top to denote the Highest Power.  We wrap the tree in light symbolizing the Light that fills each of us and connects us to Heaven.  The gifts we place underneath are acts of charity and love.  The ornaments we place on the tree provide our individual or ego touch, an expression of personality!

As a child I would lie on the living room carpet under the tree before the gifts were added and marvel at the lights and simply feel the energy flowing through this gateway to Heaven.  As I ponder this experience, the smell of the pine scent takes me back to a simpler time when people were still living in nature.  The lights of the tree are magical and colorful each representing a color of the rainbow and the diversity on earth.  It is a reminder that we are all of One Light.

The best part of the whole experience is doing this early in the morning when everyone else is asleep and the silence is pervasive.  This is when the Spirit within the Silence is easiest to hear.  Of course, it is a feeling more than a sound.  How does one hear silence?  Lying there, looking up, absorbing the beauty, and listening…

Amid this season of hustle and bustle, please remember to connect with this Silence as it is indeed the reason for the season!  Do it daily and Christ Mas never ends ♥

Merry CHRISTmas

What if life is a gift to support you?  Could you live humbly or would you let ego take you as it does so many.  If God intended for each of us to have all that we need when we need it, then life truly is a gift and we are Blessed.  In the dawn of our conscious mind the Truth is emerging.  All we need to flourish and thrive is provided us right here on this earth, right now and all we need do is accept the gifts.  The ego mind tries to control life through guilt, false belief and manipulation, but this is no longer possible because we are awakening.  We are emerging from the fog to behold the Garden of Eden.  We realize now that Adam and Eve are one person and that no one else even exists, although it seems like they do.  It seems as though the entire world is full of people, when in fact they are each an aspect of the whole.  The one has shattered into slivers of glass each unique and each a part of the whole, complete onto itself. 

Our transition is a journey of awakening to our true self.  Christmas is a time when we can celebrate that oneness by giving gifts to each of those aspects we treasure the most, those people in our lives who share our experience.  I sit here contemplating why, if saving the world is so important, Jesus did not save us from our lot?  Maybe there is no one to save, maybe there is no thing to save, maybe life is perfect just as it is.  Our purpose here is not to do anything but to be who we are and know it.  Yes, not just go through the actions of our life, but to be conscious of reality, knowing we are the Christ and that the birth of Christ is that very realization!  Each year another aspect of the one awakens to this truth.  Are you this aspect of the one that is awakening to the reality of Oneness? Are you the birth of Christ?  Of course you are, awaken dear one and feel the oneness.  One means one, it means that all of life is connected like petals on a flower, leaves on a tree or drops of water in the ocean.  Every aspect of nature that we observe is a reflection of this oneness.  We support our self always and in all ways.   

The next time that someone says that anything can harm you, tells you this is bad for you, or offers you a reason to feel bad, question their motive, see that they are coming from ego mind and that they are not guilty of a crime or anything other than unconsciousness. Your very awareness of this truth lifts you above harm.  See them as a shadow of your own mind and embrace them.  Know the Truth and hold this in the front of your mind and let this comfort you.  As the saying goes, “Live and let Live”.  Simply observe yourself in action and that self is all that you see around you!  Celebrate it, Bless it, Love it!   Merry CHRISTmas everyone!!  😉  Sequoia Elisabeth

Blessed Season

This time of year has us celebrating our achievements of the past year and making plans for our future.  Each of us is preparing for the transition to the Holiday season by celebrating in our own way.  Tradition usually drives our activities and they do help us to maintain a positive glow this time of year by bringing up pleasant memories of times gone by.  If this is not the case for you then I would suggest making new memories this year and looking to the good in all that happens.  Of course, this is always good idea. 

The gifts this year are going to be better than any other year we have experienced.  Why you ask?  Because I am giving my best gift, Love.  It really is all we ever have to give.  Knickknacks and bobbles are nice and so are those new socks, but nothing is more valuable than the feeling of Love.  We do not need material things to feel that!  In fact they often get in the way of our feelings of Love.  We come to expect that new bike or sewing kit we have always wanted and it becomes about what you are getting and not about what you are giving.  Let’s focus on the deeper gifts this year and feel our connection to all that is.  So remember to focus on the Love that we all can put into our gifts this year whether we have material things to give or not.   

More importantly let’s see the Christ in every face we see this year!  Chist-mas is about being more centered in our being, thus Christ = centered (metaphysics) and mas = more (Spanish).  This is how I think of this holiday and whatever way you celebrate this season just remember that you are Loved.
