A vow renewal is wonderful and romantic way to mark a milestone anniversary such as the 10th, 25th or 50th. It can also be a time for spouses to recommit to one another after a period of separation or marital disharmony.
Your vow renewal can be similar to your wedding ceremony or something completely new and different. Contact Rev. Connie Jones-Steward for help with planning your vow renewal ceremony.
Despite what you may have seen in movies such as Poltergeist, most house blessings and space clearings do not involve the exorcism of discontented or malevolent spirits.
Instead, many people enjoy the benefits of house blessings and space clearings to clear the area of negative energies left behind by periods of familial trouble , sickness, loss or extreme financial hardships.
House blessings are frequently performed when moving into a new home in order to clear out any troubling energies left behind by the previous family. Office or business blessings can be performed on the opening day to encourage happy patrons and good business. They can also be performed during periods of slow business to encourage increased customer traffic.
Call me if you would like me to perform a spiritual blessing on your home or business.

According to Rev. Michael Beckwith, “the kosmos [sic] is waiting with bated breath for your next thought or choice.” So what will your next thought or choice be? This past week presented two natural phenomena that can help you to focus your thoughts and choices.
First we had the Summer Solstice which occurred on June 20 on the west coast. The Summer and Winter Solstices and be considered as the yin and yang of the seasons. The summer half represents activity, expansiveness and generousness while the winter half represents rest, introspection, contraction and conservation of resources. This is the time to make choices that will be enhanced by the power of the Solstice.
Second we had the Supermoon this morning, June 23rd. There is a cross-cultural belief that during the week of the full moon (three days prior, the day of and three days after) we have greater access to spiritual and Divine powers. This access can help us in the areas such as expression and manifestation of intentions. They can also assist us in tapping into our subconscious or the collective unconscious to connect with our own innate Divinity or to find the answers that we week. It only follows that this connection and access would be enhanced during the time of a Supermoon.
In conclusion, life is a product of the thoughts we put into action and the choices we make. We can either choose to be active, productive, giving and health promoting in our choices or we can choose to be inactive, unproductive takers who take no responsibility for our own health and happiness. We can harness the power of natural phenomena to aid us in our choice to be whatever type of person we choose to be.
