Presentation: Bring the Christ Light into Your Darkness!

This celebration will be fun, experiential and transformative! We’re on a journey, just like the moon and the sun, cycling through the seasons—living, dying, and re-birthing. When we are born again at Winter Solstice, along with the birth of the sun, we are born into our divine nature. We re-cognize that we are the Christ Light. At this time of year, it’s a natural time/cycle to open to practical ways to create more loving, harmonious relationships, deeper spirit, more vibrant health, and outrageous prosperity. The Solstice is a time of turning inward, into the darkness depths of the unknown, to embrace the darkest day of the year and to invoke our own shadow (darkness). And in welcoming, even celebrating our own darkness (the unconscious), we liberate ourselves from old patterns that block happiness, love, and abundance. Now we lighten up and align our personality with our Sol (soul) and receive all the support, energy, and love we need. Then we can find joy in renewal, rebirth, and gratitude for the returning Light (clarity). Our Inner Light shines brightly through the dark days of winter (challenges) ahead. At Winter Solstice, we are born again. Enjoy the darkness, revel in the Light and delight in the mystery.

THEO (Sheila Gillette)

THEO (Sheila Gillette)

In 1969, Sheila Gillette nearly died following a pulmonary embolism suffered during the birth of her third child. Following her improbable recovery, Sheila began experiencing various types of psychic phenomenon leading her to become the direct voice channel for twelve archangels known collectively as THEO. Sheila’s psychic abilities have been verified by para-psychological researchers, physicists and other scientists across the country, as well as by the hundreds of thousands of people that have sought THEO’s insight. Notably, this includes Esther Hicks, for whom Sheila and THEO were the catalyst for her to begin channeling ABRAHAM. As Esther has described in her best-selling books, events and films, THEO predicted that she would channel her own group of higher teachers and instructed her on how to begin the spiritual process of becoming receptive to their energies. Within a year of Esther’s experience with THEO, she began channeling ABRAHAM.

While comprised of twelve angelic beings, THEO speaks through Sheila in a single voice. THEO hasn’t been embodied, but rather speaks to us from higher dimensions. Paramount to THEO’s teachings is Soul Integration™, which is an authentic path to wholeness, or what many conceive of as enlightenment. The individual and collective challenges people face, as well as the dreams and ambitions they aspire to, can be met through learning how to become fully soul integrated. In this way, the Law of Attraction takes on new meaning as desired vision becomes less cerebral and more fully integrated in mind, body and spirit.

Sheila has been astonishing radio, television and live audiences with THEO’s teachings for several decades and has authored two books; the first published by Simon & Schuster titled, The 5th Dimension: Channels to A New Reality. Her second book, The Soul Truth: A Guide to Inner Peace, was co-authored with her husband Marcus.

Presentation: We Are the Light of the World!

Despite the many theories about our true, spiritual identity, there is none simpler than saying, believing, and knowing that we are the Light of the World. As the Light of the world, we choose what we project onto the screen of life) the material world); As the Light of the world, we are meant to bring love and forgiveness to all dark (judgmental) people and places. Michael’s talk will share powerful reminders on how to awaken NOW and live the truth of who we are. His talk will also feature powerful decrees that clear our chakras and reprogram them a higher quantity of light and the highest vibration possible at this time.
