What am I feeling today? I woke up discouraged. Not about my health. I feel about the same; just some sniffles. No, I was discouraged about the whole situation. Not just for me, but for all of us.
Yesterday was very intense. I experienced the Department of Health, a multitude of calls and texts, some from people I hadn’t heard from in years, my impending vacation that is to take place in 11 days and a multitude of feelings snf thoughts that shift and change in each moment. Fortunately, I have practitioners that I can reach out to and my own husband. I feel prayed up.
The dilemma is that there is a part of me that feels stigmatized. Is that the right word? I feel like I have a stamp on me in the world of form that can never be removed. I am forced to take an upward flight into consciousness and examine this feeling. For sure, I am trapped in the world of COVID19 and all its implication on our globe, the never-ending thoughts of everyone and everything that takes us deeper into the rabbit whole. Will I escape?
The answer is a strong resounding yes, not just for me, but for all of us. I know something more and it is this. No matter what anyone else thinks of me, I am more than this. I am more than a diagnosis. I am definitely not a prognosis. I am safe and I am moving through this. I plan to suck all that I can learn from this experience and come out the other end stronger. I know I am resilient. I know I am able to help others through moving through this experience.
I reached out for Spiritual Mind Treatment today from one of my dear friends and fellow minister. Here is what he wrote: “I am securely rooted in faith that there only one Power and Presence. This Infinite Greatness on Demand is present in and as all that is; there is no separation; only wholeness. This is the truth of Rita. There is no effect that has any bearing on her expression of pure health and vitality. I see her only as the infinite flow of perfection. The spiritual blueprint, untouched by any circumstance, is dominant and expressing as her now. For this I am overflowing with gratitude. I release this knowing that my statement, rooted in spiritual truth, returns fully formed in expression. And so it is! You are Magnificent!”
This is what we do when we are discouraged as Religious Scientists, we recalibrate, rewire and redirect our thoughts. When we cannot do it for ourselves, we call upon those who are not immersed in our drama. They stand in the Field of Unlimited Possibility and untouched Potential and Know. Energy moves and if we are receptive and willing, we move with it. I am receptive. I am willing and I am moving through this right now.
Love and Aloha,
Rev. Rita Andriello-Feren
