Ministerial Services ~ Weddings, Baptisms, Counseling

Ministerial Offerings

I am an interfaith minister, founded in the teachings of the ancient Essene Brother/Sisterhood. With this foundation, I also incorporate multiple ideologies, including Christianity, Native American Spirituality and Buddhism.  What is most important to me as a minister is to serve with purity of heart, faith, compassion and devotion; that all I do may be an instrument of Divine Love and Grace as purely as I am able.

I feel profoundly blessed to be an Interfaith Minister. The grace of this
great gift continues to flower for me. In my ministerial work, as I mentioned, I embrace
the higher truths of many different spiritual ideologies with my roots
firmly planted in the ancient Essene belief system. My commitment as a
minister is to be a warrior for Love and to infuse it’s great beauty and
power into all that I offer, both as an educator and in ceremony.

Soulful Weddings, Baptisms and Sacred Ceremonies

It is my great privilege to be available for weddings, baptisms, funeral services and to be of comfort
and spiritual assistance as one nears transition. My emphasis in
facilitating ceremony is on holding the space for the dynamic presence of
Love, Truth, Devotion and Transcendence. I envision ceremony as a sacred
celebration or holy ritual through which we may all be uplifted, ennobled
and blessed.

With my specialization in support of Soulmates, I offer customized wedding ceremonies that honor, celebrate and deepen the Soulmate bond, as well as a multitude of options with other emphasis ~ ranging from the more traditional to the more secular. Following is an excerpt from the “Wedding Components” manual I wrote and provides as a resource for couples in shaping their customized wedding.

A wedding is a sacred ceremony. Not merely because we may choose to invoke the Divine, but because it illuminates, activates and honors the sacredness of your love. It brings you both, and all fortunate enough to be chosen as your community of witnesses, into greater awareness and alignment with what is most true, vital and beautiful about love and about your love.”

May the warmth of the sun and the brilliance of the stars, as they shine
brightly the glories of Mother/Father God, feed you deeply with your soul’s
own Peace, your path’s true Beauty.

Prayers And Spiritual Teachings

This prayer is one of my favorites. It is from the “Essene Gospel Of Peace,
Book Two.” Again, if the term “God” does not resonate comfortably with your
spiritual beliefs, in your own mind, use the term that does.

Guided Message

The following is guidance that came through for me for a course I developed
in 1995. I wanted to share it at this time in case there may be anything of
use for you in your own growth.

Understanding The Natures Of The Heart, The Soul And the Spirit

It is often hard to understand the differences and relationships between the
Heart, the Soul and the Spirit. They are so deeply intertwined, complex and
ethereal in essence. Many truths about them are simply far beyond mental
comprehension and expression. Bearing this in mind, I will convey as purely
as I am able, the guidance I receive about this issue at this point in my
own growth.

My understanding about this is that Spirit is the essence of all life. It is
an extension of Mother/Father God’s Holy Spirit, and It’s primary
characteristic is Love. It is this that makes us all one.

All of life is created by and infused with Spirit. Thus, it is all an
expression, an extension of Mother/Father God’s Holy Spirit and vast
Unconditional Love. We are all part of God. We are all one with God.

Mother/Father God continuously and devotedly expresses this Love to us —
constantly, passionately and limitlessly — for our own growth and well
being. It is what is at the core of all creation. It is what breathes life
into our very beings.

Within this grand celebration of Divine Love that is life, each physical
entity has a soul essence, or Soul, that is also part of and one with
Spirit. Each soul essence has specific gifts, qualities and characteristics
that are necessary for and part of its individual spiritual purpose and
evolution.

Our soul essences are our links to Spirit. They are our individual
identities within the great Unconditional Love, Oneness, Power and Beauty
that is Spirit. Our soul essences extend far beyond this physical life. They
are Divine, and thus, eternal. Our souls’ progressive developments as
spiritual entities, throughout lifetimes, are integral to God’s Great Plan.
We each have our own spiritual purposes to fulfill. It is through our
individual soul essence identities that we manifest our paths and draw to us
the lessons, opportunities and people necessary for us to fulfill our unique
purposes. Through this unfolding growth process, we learn to experience and
express God’s Love purely and completely, which is the heart of all
spiritual purposes.

It is through our souls that we experience our union with Mother/Father God;
that we experience Spirit. It is through our soul essence identities that
we evolve as spiritual beings in response to Spirit’s loving presence and
communications. As we unfold, we are furthering God’s Great Plan.

Each of us is alive within physical bodies right now. We all have qualities
and gifts that are specific to our individual spiritual, emotional,
intellectual and physical make up. They are, of course, all part of
manifesting our spiritual purposes and of expressing Spirit. They are all
part of our soul essence identities.

It is through our Hearts that we can experience the true gift and power of
these qualities within us and learn to utilize them more fully to increase
our levels of self-expression and personal fulfillment. It is also through
the Heart that our souls communicate with us.

They communicate primarily, but not exclusively, with feelings. Our
capacities to feel, as well as to interpret and receive feelings and
information, allow our Souls to integrate with us and express themselves
through us. Our Souls guide us, inform us, strengthen us, empower us as
vehicles for Spirit through our Hearts.

The Heart is a much “larger” entity than we have traditionally characterized
it. It is experienced within our entire being. It is not exclusively
“housed” in the physical spot we have assigned to it. It is not “housed”
exclusively within the body itself.

The Heart is the bridge between physical and spiritual life. It is the
voice of the soul. Thus, you can see the singular, immense power of the
Heart as an instrument for personal and spiritual fulfillment. If we have
well developed relationships with our Hearts, our Souls, and thus Spirit,
can express in our lives with greater clarity, power and success. We would
also have clearer understanding of our physical gifts and strengths. Our
lives can then reflect our true selves with less obstruction. The
extraordinary, multifaceted gems that are our unique soul essence identities
are then steadily unearthed.

We are all precious, important parts of God’s Great Plan, much more so than
we could ever imagine. There is nothing small about any of us nor anything
that we do. Being as wholly and purely an expression of our souls as we can
be is essential to fulfilling our individual purposes within that Plan, as
well as creating more joyful, authentic lives for ourselves.

Opening up to our hearts and to their powerful, wondrous force within our
lives is the key both to our personal evolution and to fulfilling our
individual purposes within Mother/Father God’s Great Plan.

“There are only two ways to live your life.

One is as if nothing is a miracle.

The other is as if everything is.”

Albert Einstein
