“Be Impeccable With Your Words”

Rev. Crystal Muldrow

In Genesis, God spoke and the created world arose. As children of God, we create like God. Our words give voice to our intent and expectation, and our resulting creations mirror the consciousness from which they arose. Our challenge, then, is to be impeccable with our words that we might manifest our highest vision.

“Rising Out of the Ashes: The Rumble”

Rev. Crystal Muldrow

From Brené Brown: “Men and women who rise strong are willing and able to rumble with their stories. By rumble, I mean they get honest about the stories they’ve made up about their struggles and they are willing to revisit, challenge, and reality-check these narratives as they dig into topics such as boundaries, shame, blame, resentment, heartbreak, generosity, and forgiveness. Rumbling with these topics and moving from our first responses to a deeper understanding of our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors gives birth to key learnings about who we are and how we engage with others. The rumble is where wholeheartedness is cultivated and change begins.”

“Rising Out of the Ashes: The Magical Place”
