An Easter Prayer

Easter Message – March 23, 2008

You’ve journeyed through the winter season with your heart open to hearing, accepting, and following the call of Spirit. You have learned more about whom you are, what direction you are to take, and what your purpose is with each passing day.

Just as shedding a heavy winter coat allows you freedom of movement, releasing old ideas or patterns of behavior opens you to new feelings of personal and spiritual freedom. And like the caterpillar that exchanges what is familiar to become a butterfly, you are willing to let go of what you know in order to experience the new. As you stay true to what is yours to do, transformation naturally follows.

Whatever change is ahead for you, you can be certain to succeed as you remain attuned to the voice of Spirit within you. You can look to the future with confidence and enthusiastically greet any change because you know that this period of growth and transformation is firmly rooted in your acceptance of God’s call to your spirit.

Today is Easter.

Let your heart soar.

Let wings of faith and freedom lift your spirit to new heights

This is a day of renewal.

This is a day of celebration.

This is a day to celebrate the new you!

Today is a day of new beginnings – a new life,

a new sense of love and spiritual power, a new sense of freedom.

With fresh understanding, you begin your life anew.

You are transformed.

You are a new expression of the Divine.

Beloved, celebrate this day. Celebrate the new you!
