Here and Now
Hello and namaste. Namaste is a greeting used to recognize and honor the Spirit with me and the Spirit within you and the path we are both on.
Here and Now!
We are back from teen camp! It was an amazing experience full of growth and self enlightenment. My teen and I went through an experience of home sickness. She gathered that we are both safe. I am here for her and this experience was happening for us to grow together and learn. By the last day of camp she didn't want to leave. THAT IS THE AH-HA MOMENT WE ARE LOOKING FOR! It's so simple that the growth of independence was a step forward in her spiritual growth. She ended up gaining so much from the workshops, so much from the belief system, how to manifest, show the world love, show herself love, and our form of prayer which is still in the process of perfection. The most important part was gaining the knowledge of we are all one and the entire camp teens and adults support and love her. We are always at the right place and the right time.
At this moment we are ever present in the knowing of growth for our group. We have gained a youth and a young adult who we are grateful for. They loved their experience and intend to come back. We welcome them into our group with complete love and wholeness. We respect the paths they are on.
Today we learned about the seven attributes of Spirit/God/Universe. These qualities are within us just as much as it is within the Universe. We embody them and recognize all of them in our lives and the ones we want to show up more. These qualities are Love, Power, Light, Peace, Life, Joy, and Beauty. We made play dough molds of what that looks like to us. We each picked one of these qualities and molded our opinions. Life was a frog representing nature and everything living. Peace was a scale; balance of life. Love was relationships of all kinds and the unconditional care for them. Light was the Universe because it is infinite. Power was a hand with a flower in it representing having the power to manifest beautiful things. Joy was the things that make us happy like a cat or smiling or getting along with our parents. And Beauty was a garden and birds. This is what our group came up with.
Let your mind wonder on what these God Qualities mean to you and how they show up for you. They can always be molded into different things. It's never just one thing and there's never a wrong answer. Let yourself recognize that all these qualities are within you. You are these qualities and you can know that anytime you want. Peace begins within.
Hello everyone! I am Light, Love, Happiness, Health, Joy, Peace, Power, and Divine, but most people call me Bree.
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season with celebration, love, great food, and gifts! Also Happy New Year!
We welcome this new year with open arms! We have a knowing that everything and anything is possible! You are courageous and powerful! You control this new year and you get to create your reality every step of the way. "I can.." is now in your vocabulary at all times!
Now that that's out of our system, let us begin the joyous blog about CAMP!!!
Our teen and I are going up to Malibu for winter teen camp on January 17th - January 20th! We are very excited! This camp teaches tools on how to be more spiritual and connect with ourselves, nature, other people, the Infinite, and the world through workshops that we do with our "family". "Family" is the group you are put into with 5 to 6 other teens and two "parents" who are advisers (which will be me) from other youth groups. You learn, grow, and expand your consciousness with your family. They usually become your life long friends.
The requirement to go to this camp is that you are 13-18 years old (in high school), to go to your center for four months, and to know the five steps of spiritual mind treatment, which is our form of prayer. The adult requirement is to have one class of science of mind, usually foundations, to know spiritual mind treatment, and to go to the adviser training or attend the online version of the training.
Camp is a magnificent experience. It opens your mind up completely! I was fifteen when I started going to camp. At that time I was a quite being who kept to myself and then camp happened and it changed every bit of that. It helped me to claim my perfection and to accept the path that I am on. I went from being timid and scared to outgoing and courageous! Without the experiences that I received in camp I don't know where or who I would be right now. I've learned that I am in control of what I want my life to look like. Although life being life, we get challenges thrown on our path. With camp I was given tools on how to get through the challenges while keeping a positive mind and giving thanks to the challenge for what it has taught me. I've learned to see the positive side out of every experience, good or bad.
If you are reading this thinking " I'm a teen... I wanna go!!!! But I guess it's too late (sad face)"... Well thankfully you can go to the SUMMER CAMP in July! The difference between the camps are that summer is a week long- winter is a weekend, summer: people come from all over the world- at winter its your region (socal for us), summer: goes much deeper into the workshops and winter goes deep but not too deep, summer: has more events throughout it and winter only has the talent show and the dance (if I'm remembering that correctly). Now this doesn't mean winter doesn't rock, it's just not as long but still a great experience and as a region we get much closer.
If you have any questions please email me through the CSL Menifee Valley on facebook! Or email me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be happy to give more information about our center and camp.
Love, Peace, and Light,
