The service will feature a brief 20-minute discussion at the end about the upcoming 2016 trip to visit John of God. People will have a chance sign up, to ask questions, and to listen to others who have had healings at John of God’s center in Brazil.

At 1 p.m. there will be a 90-minute potentially life-changing workshop, “Removing Blockages to Prosperity and Fulfillment,” about the five most important things you can do to remove blockages to abundance. Participation is through a love offering.

I AM Symposium

When you face adversity, it either breaks you … or you break through.

Challenges in life teach us our strengths. They show us what we’re made of. And by revealing our hidden reserves, they make us more resilient.

Like a flame in the desert burning through the tough outer shell of the fire flower to reveal its vermilion blossoms, adversity burns away our masks and exposes the ultimate sacred essence of who we are!

There’s a secret key to personal empowerment and transcending obstacles that sages and wisdom-keepers from cultures around the world have pointed us toward for millennia …

  •  A spiritual seed planted in the heart of every human being that calls us to our destiny …
  •  A voice of clear inner wisdom that aligns us with our highest values and intentions …
  •  A recognition of vital forces and universal interweaving that is staggeringly beautiful and awe-inspiring …

I Am SymposiumThe I AM Symposium was a blockbuster FREE online event created by my esteemed colleagues, acclaimed soul coach Renee Baribeau, aka The Practical Shaman, and New York Times bestselling editor and writer Stephanie Gunning, who has collaborated with some of the most popular and celebrated new thought leaders of our era on their books. They gathered 24 enlightened individuals into an amazing three-week event to share how they infuse joy, prosperity, and success into their personal and business lives by embracing the supreme power of “I AM.”

The Bible/Torah reports that God spoke to Moses during the Exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt, saying, “I AM that I AM,” and this I AM gave Moses the power to part the waters of the Red Sea.

Using ancient Indo-Aryan root language of Sanskrit, when we join our palms in front of our hearts and bow to one another, we say, “Namaste,” meaning “I bow to the divine spirit in you.” I AM is our inner divinity.

During this extraordinary event, 24 presenters shared inspiring personal stories of how they overcame challenges and hardships by awakening to the power of their true nature as spiritual beings.

What Can Go Right Now?

We are so accustomed to thinking about “what can go wrong” that we don’t even think, for example, of all the things that had to go right in order for us to be here this morning. This is so much a part of us that we have raised “what can go wrong” to an art form – we even invented a guy named Murphy to epitomize that no matter what you do, anything that can go wrong will happen.

bad day signNot surprisingly, then, we believe in bad days. If we have two really bad things occur, we hold our breath knowing that a third and possibly the worst bad thing is going to happen.

And if something really great happens, we say to ourselves, “I got really lucky,” “it surprised even me,” or “that’s not going to happen again soon.”

In other words, bad things happen in threes and good things, when and if they happen, occur in ones.

We find ourselves living in the world of limitation, where we accept “bad days” as part of our menu of life.

When a good day comes along, we wish we knew what it was that created it. Maybe we could bottle it.

So when you are asked, “What can go right?” you might find yourself having to think how to answer. You might take a deep breath and blurt out “everything,” an answer you really don’t actually believe.

Sometimes it feels like you are not “being realistic” when you believe things can go right. And yet, aren’t we doing the same thing when we decide that something is pre-destined to go wrong?

yes signBut recognize that we live in a self-aware loving universe that always says “yes.” If you believe everything has the potential to go wrong, then it does. And if you believe things can go right, they do also. Our lives are not governed by luck, jinxes or the stars lining up once in a blue moon, but through right action and right consciousness and the embodiment of spirit knowing itself through us and more. We are individualized points of the Infinite Presence, God, and the Divinity within us is creating, celebrating, and having a great deal of fun being alive.

So before you go on, take a minute, take a deep breathe and let any fear go. Begin to ask yourself, many times a day: “What can go right today? And it will.

In this moment, I know that there is only the Infinite Divine Presence
That flows through me as my ultimate good, my ultimate, growth,
My ultimate expression of creativity, celebration and love.
I know this Presence is mine, and
I move, think, create, and experience my being within this Infinite Presence.
I joyfully know that this Presence is Love, and
That love is the ultimate what can go right today.
I choose to plant the seeds of love in all I do,
and knowing that life flows with us and through us in perfect right action.
I know that everything is for us, and
Nothing is against us except what we have once believed.
In this moment, we give great thanks, for in gratitude there is right action,
And I affirm my words have power and release them
And so it is.
