Are You Content?

These are the words my husband asked me the other night out of nowhere. It’s amazing how a simple question can open the faucet and flood you with so many emotions. I didn’t answer, but the tears that filled my eyes said it all. Or did they? I know he wasn’t asking about our relationship because of the conversation we were having before this question. I sat with it. It was such an awe-inspiring question. I went back and forth with all…

Ep.6 Chop Wood, Carry Water

The Zen Buddhists saying, “Before enlightenment, chop wood carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood carry water,” speaks to the value of work, no matter what stage of life we are in. So why does our culture vilify work?Why do so many of us try to find ways to get out of work? Is work a necessary part of our spiritual growth or not? These are the questions and issues our dynamic duo tackle in this this episode.

Ep.5 Is Religion Dead?

Research shows that attendance is steeply falling off across all religions (except one). What does this mean for the future of #faith, #spirituality and #religion in our society? Rev. Shad and Irrev. Melissa take a serious, and not so serious, look into this topic with some deep insights and points of advice we can all learn from.

I Will Carry You

“I will carry you.”  These are the words of a song I have had on repeat lately, by Michael W. Smith.  I find all the melodic rhythms and words of his music to be inspired by the greater potential of the Universe, as a way-shower of God’s Love for all of us.  During this time, I find spiritual music to be an incredible space holder for my being to stay lifted and peaceful during these difficult times in the world.  Many…

Practice Doesn’t Make Perfect

My gymnastics coach used to say, “Practice doesn’t make perfect, it is perfect practice that makes perfect!” After a lifetime of spiritual practice, I now know what he meant and look forward to sharing it with you.

Divine Connection

Which do you desire more: Serving the wants of the ego or connecting with the Divine? Join Rev. Shad as he dives into what might be the most important question we could ever ask ourselves.

The Guiding Presence

In harmony with the Guiding Presence the sky is clear and spacious — breathing is a pleasure and the earth is a pristine habitation where all creatures flourish together, content with the way they are, endlessly repeating themselves without the fear of Man. When man rules without the Guiding Presence the sky becomes filthy, the earth becomes depleted – a habitation for sin, sickness and death. When man rules without the Guiding Presence, creatures become extinct while humans exploit their brothers…

Lost & Found

Envision a life lived in limitless expansion of consciousness and possibility! Jesus taught that man lives in two worlds — not in succession, but concurrently. He lives in the world of appearances, the three-dimensional world of form and shape, time and space — the world where we have fluctuating experiences of sickness and health, of peace and war, of harmony and chaos. However, man also lives in a spiritual world as a spiritual being. Jesus says, ‘Don’t be misled in…

Healing Consciousness

A true story is told of a vagrant in England who froze to death in a hotel dumpster trying to escape a blizzard. When his body was taken to the local marque they found a thousand pound note (equivalent to 4 five hundred dollar bills at the time) in the pocket of his pants. Why he didn’t use the money to get out of the blizzard can only be explained by the fact that he didn’t know the money was…

The Illusion of Control

Matthew 11:28 says “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” Spiritual Rest is the place of Loving Intimacy with God. Spirit desires to meet with us in times of Spiritual Rest, to simply love us and restore us through intimacy with no expectations. I woke up today thinking about my message and sat in meditation focusing my energy on the embrace of Spirit’s Love moving through my entire being. I found…

The Proven Formula for Healing

There are two stories you will never forget, which will be shared in this video. Once you’ve heard these stories, Jack will reveal a formula for healing that will prove more powerful and a thousand times more effective than the “CBD” Formula, the “Purple Power” Formula and the “Patch.” This video will introduce this ground-breaking formula which is in its initial trial phase. Because this yet-to-be-named formula is in its trial phase, it is being offered free–absolutely free–to everyone who…

The Brakes Have Come Off

Notice how birds land on a branch – with absolute trust. They trust that the branch will move with them as they land and then stabilize. You can do the same too. What if your “landing” isn’t what you expected and you wobble? Does that mean you will fall? Hardly! Even gymnasts land in a way that forces them to deal with their weight and forward movement. You are strong and can do the same.  Recognizing that movement when you land is a natural and helpful…

What’s On Your Mind?

People living in the ego-centric definition of life are often afraid to reveal what they are thinking, unless it’s another opportunity to talk smack or gossip about others. Such unfortunate egos don’t realize how their negative impressions are creating turmoil within themselves.  A person suffering from chronic, negative awareness needs more than the anxiety within to cause a change of mind. Usually, the person needs a spiritual wake up call, or personal counseling. The object of the counselor is to help…

Ep.1 Who Are We To Have A Podcast!?

“Oh right, we were supposed to do an Episode 1 to introduce ourselves,” they said. Well here it is. Get to know Melissa and Shad – the history of how they met working at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and continued working together at MGM Resorts International and then worked together once again at Unity of Las Vegas Church as Board President and minister, respectively. You will also get to hear the “origin story” of this podcast and its…

The Secret of Personal Transformation

According to the teachings of the spiritual masters, the True Self of God exists within everyone. In Christianity this True Self is Christ. In Buddhism this True of Core Nature is called Buddha Nature. In Hindu Spirituality it is called Brahman. Every major religion has a special name for the True Self of every person. This is all very promising, but it is useless unless we know how to access this nature and bring it forth into our lives. No…

Transcending Personal Duality

There are many who say that we are born again, life after life, to make amends for our bad karma from previous lives. It is coming to light in our ever-awakening experiences that the good and evil which come into our lives arrive not from past lives, but from each person’s present state of consciousness. Either you are living from the dualistic awareness and constantly creating suffering for yourself and others, or you have entered the enlightened awareness of Oneness.…
