Our individual Songs, Sing loudest when they sing with the One Great Song. Be that Song of Hope, Love and Healing
When we look at a beach, we see a vast landscape full of strength . However, when we look closer we see the individuality and uniqueness of each grain of sand, each pebble, has its own unique properties . some small, large, varied in color, texture and materials that made them. Each when they encounter the harshness of the waves, wind and Storms can be carried away , displaced and battered , Yet When they group together, hold closely to the others, they can withstand the storms.
Like each pebble we are also unique. our experiences through life make us who we are. We may find ourselves caught in the surf , battered and carried away only to return to our starting place. our abilities and strengths may be hidden beneath the sand, awaiting to be rediscovered. the one thing we can count on, is that our landscape will change. Our purpose redirected. however, we become stronger through our experiences. When we come together with a single purpose, we become as strong as that beach. We can move mountains, Heal ourselves, family, community and the world.
Welcome to Guiding Spirit Church as an Animist Church . Our Beliefs are as follows:
We believe that everything has an energetic vibration, that emanates from the One universal Energy of Creation . This energy is known as God, Spirit, universal consciousness and many other names. Since all things seen and unseen have a vibration , it can be said that all things have a Song or Soul. These individual Songs are connected to the One Master or Great Song. No individual Song is greater than or above another. Humans are different than say a rock, an animal , plant , weather , earth or Ocean etc. Because we see ourselves as different we have created a division and an imbalance, based on the false belief that we are superior, only posses a soul and Alone in the universe. This disconnection, tells us we are Abandoned by others and Spirit. It creates a false sense of who we truly are and our place among the other Songs.
The creator, having seen our Fears of Abandonment, seeing ourselves as separate from the rest of creation and Fear of being alone, has tasked the rest of the songs of the Earth , the heavens and unseen world of Spirits to try to awaken us from the dream world we have created. Thus, Calling us back into unity and harmony with the One Great Song, our Ancestors and each other.
