Heart Thoughts: The Impact of Unity

Hello, Dear One! I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. If you are in Maine, you know how spectacular the weather was!
This week’s message has a testimony that I felt was important to share with all of you. It comes from a wonderful man who found us through Steve Salois, and you can read for yourself the impact the ministry has had on him. His name is Aaron Germana and here is what he writes:
Recently, I was hospitalized for an infected big left toe. As I had waited too long to take care of the toe, it had to go. The lessons that I have learned in my short time as a member of Unity Center for Spiritual Growth and their Five Basic Principles helped me navigate my way through the loss of part of me and impending uncertainties. 
As I was sitting on the pre-op table, I came to the realization that there was nothing else that I could do. It was out of my control. Before the anesthesia knocked me out, I prayed to God and surrendered full control to him. After what felt like a brief and refreshing nap, I woke up… a new and stronger version of myself.
This experience helped me truly understand how good God is and how much he loves each and every one of us. I have begun to see the world in a different light, God’s light. I could see his love in his gift of life and this beautiful world that he gifted to us, the kindness and caring of those around me, and for the first time, in myself.
I could have slipped into a deep depression and adopted the woe is me, look at what happened to me, my life sucks, why have you forsaken me God mindset but instead I chose to pray, meditate, and reflect on my experience illuminated by the light of God’s love. I recited the Abundance Prayer, the Protection Prayer, and our Five Basic Principles multiple times a day, whenever I felt I needed strength.
In closing, I am grateful that God is in my life and that he has blessed me with his love. I am also grateful that he guided me to the Unity Center for Spiritual Growth at the perfect time in my life. Thank you all and I look forward to our continued journey together.
We hold Aaron in our thoughts and prayers and look forward to his return soon to our services on Sunday.
As I continue the messages from the book It’s Not Your Money by Tosha Silver, I am getting feedback from you that the message is resonating, and this week was more than usual. If you didn’t get to hear it on Sunday, you can listen here.
You will hear some of my own experiences with supporting and loving my inner child. It is still a work in progress. 
Here is a prayer that comes from the book that will be helpful for you to use when working with your little girl or boy…
I offer this to you, oh Beloved. Allow the wall to fall that separates me from my vulnerable child. Show the route that reunites us with patience and faith. I long to take care of myself like never before.

Rev. Jim Rosemergy

Next week we will be welcoming Rev. Jim Rosemergy. You will not want to miss being with us in person. Rev. Jim’s energy is so kind and loving… your inner child will be soothed. 

It is also Potluck Sunday. Bring a dish to share!
Here is a great mantra for you this week: Every day, I grow more and more filled with Divine courage, patience, ease, and grace.   
Have a wonder-filled week!
You are a blessing in my life,
Rev. Patricia Bessey
