The Vortex Appreciation Group: Communicating with Spirit

VortexND

Now that we are in Samhain-tide our thoughts often turn to spirits of loved ones who have crossed over & the like. But as Abraham makes perfectly clear, “There is no death.”

Tonight we discuss the ways & means of communicating with Spirit & spirits via Universal Laws, in particular the Law of Attraction & The Law of Deliberate Creation.

It is easier than you think, when you know how to tune yourself.

There are so many ways into the Vortex. So many techniques, games, exercises & processes have been offered over the years. Yet if you make getting into the Vortex ‘work’ it can create the very resistance you seek to overcome.

In these weekly gathering, we take the work… out of the equation & really have a ball together. Though the conversations get deep, it is always uplifting & fun.

As we acknowledge that raising vibration is a gradual process, we drop the oars & let the current take us & turn us downstream, becoming the people our spirits have already become.

Admission is $10. Reservations Required.

Cothing Drive by Annette Brasor

AnnetteBClothDrI am a Long Island school nurse desperately in need of clothing for the Primary Health Office that cares for kindergarten and first grade students.  Children in this age group often wet and poo themselves, they throw-up on themselves and others  (I call this ‘collateral damage’), have nosebleeds that saturate their clothing and somehow drench themselves at water fountains.

All of the above incidences require a change of clothing.  When parents or guardians cannot be reached for whatever reason I help the child clean themselves up and put them in fresh clothing.  For many years I have relied on our PTA and parents to help fill my clothing closet with size-appropriate clothing and they have come through time and time again.  I buy girls’ and boys’ new underwear and socks and often shop thrift stores and yard sales for gently used sales of girls’ stretch pants, boys’ athletic pants, and uni-sex jeans, tee shirts and sweatshirts.

Oftentimes the clothing is not returned.  And last year wiped out my supply.  Reasonably priced thrift store clothing was not so reasonable and I could buy new at store sales.  Clothing at yard sales were non-existent.

I have turned to crowd-funding as my last resort.  $2000 would go very far to fill my clothing closet and I would appreciate any funds that can be sent.  Many, many thanks to all!

“I’ve learned that if I can’t move ahead without at least peace of mind or have fun in the process, I can either stop where I am, or take the time needed to feel good about doing the next step. In other words, I’m only doing what I want to do, not what I have to do, & if I have to do it, I’m not doing it until I want to do it.”

Rev. Mark A. Lyons
