It has been made very clear to me lately that it's time for me to actually OWN that "Rev." in front of my name. I AM the Reverend Sandra Anne Daly, and this is my ministry page. Join me Sundays at 11:00am Pacific time for a casual "church" service. Just something to consider as we each live our week.
Willingness is the key...
Got challenges in your life? Congratulations! That is a very good thing.
Martin Luther King Jr. said, "Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase. Just take the step." William Shakespeare said, "Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win... by fearing to attempt." Today's livestream is about using those two quotes in cooperation with each other when following Divine Guidance is something you've decided to do for yourself.
Have you ever had an epiphany? A realization that felt profound to you? An "ah-ha" moment? And did you DO anything with it? Or did you write it down and then forget about it? It's only if we incorporate them into how we live - who we BE in the world - that we gain any benefit from them. And if we DON'T do anything with them... along comes The Cosmic 2x4, which is always a grand adventure, but rarely any fun. As you will see when you watch this video.
This is where it all began for me... My first steps along a path that began with me literally HATING God. As I walked that (unfamiliar and scary) path, my hatred eased as I learned through my own experiences what "God" really is.
God is not some old white man up in the sky looking down on us and judging us for being the puny little humans that "HE" supposedly created in "HIS" image and after "HIS" likeness. Excuse me, but that doesn't even make sense!
Join me at 11:00am today - Sunday October 16, 2022 if you'd like a new and different idea of what "God" actually is. For those of you who are tithers, or feel inspired to contribute something, I can receive those contributions thru Paypal.me at https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/RevSandi?country.x=US&locale.x=en_US Or Zelle at firstname.lastname@example.org Or Venmo @RevSandi
What do you feel Called to? If you're not moving toward that, why not? This is all about playing full out instead of hanging onto your comfort zone for dear life. I include myself here as I'm saying "you" and "your."
Youtube had a streaming issue in the middle of my broadcast, so I had to do a Part 1 and Part 2.

All about choosing how you want to look at things...
A spiritual Truth is that the Universe (aka "God") can only meet you where you ARE. I was recently reminded of this in a pretty big way, and since it's so ... 'in my face' (LOL pun very much intended), how could I not make it this week's practice?
Pretty much a continuation of last week's practice. Based on the premise that "where I place my ATTENTION, I am placing my INTENTION." This premise - and the practice of deliberately noticing what I'm paying attention to - is one of THE reasons that I made it through being homeless in an unfamiliar city so successfully (and spectacularly!). I highly recommend it.
The way out is through. This week we go even DEEPER into what Fully Receiving actually means...
Sometimes all you can do is decide to fully receive things exactly as they are... without ANY wishing for things to be different from what they ARE. I have found this practice to be life-changing on many, many different levels. Check it out if you want to find out how to feel better right in the midst of your pain.
See description in the "Round 1" entry below.
This is a FANTASTIC practice for when you’re experiencing something challenging or painful, no matter what the challenge is or what kind of pain it is. If you can get yourself to stop resisting it WHILE IT’S HAPPENING, you will have chosen your own freedom.
LOL I got lots of practice with this DURING this livestream because of equipment challenges. My camera kept shutting itself off, and that's why there's a Round 1 and a Round 2 for today. PS: I got the opportunity to share a FANTASTIC (super-challenging) experience that I had some time ago. That is in Round 2, so Round 2 is seriously worth listening to.
What if you could just choose to feel grateful, without needing something to feel grateful FOR? Guess what. You can. I learned this for myself when I was homeless in an unfamiliar city and state. And this ability has served me very well quite often over the years. I highly recommend it as a practice. Why? Because it will literally change your life for the better.
I'm back with my weekly "I Choose..."
I used to do this via a weekly written and emailed publication, but who wants ANOTHER email in their inbox? And who wants to take the time to READ a big ol' long article? So I have changed with the times and the updated tech, and a weekly video it is! This way you can listen while doing other things, or devote all your attention to these recordings... whatever listening method you use is completely up to you. I'm just happy to be back.
