The third time is the charm. Colby Memorial Temple in Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp is scheduled for a soft opening Aug. 22 with a grand opening on Aug. 29. This will be the third time I have written about it.
First I wrote a press release to be sent out to the media. Next, I wrote a nearly 900-word article for my freelance gig with the Hometown News. Finally, this blog.
Colby Memorial Temple, which is just over 6,000-sqaure-feet, is simply amazing. It's the spiritual center of the community, which is 55 acres and the place I call home.
Backstory: The first time I stepped foot in Colby Memorial Temple it was for a Sunday Service, which still starts at 10:30 a.m. The lecturer for the day comes back later in the service and gives messages proving the continuity of life. I got a message and was told that I would someday be on the platform doing what he was doing. I thought he was crazy.
Sure enough 11 years later there I was speaking at the podium and giving messages. The energy on the podium in remarkable. Imagine, standing there where tens and thousands of other mediums stood since 1923 giving their energy to those who gathered. Trust me when I say it is surreal.
I will be receiving my healing papers on Sept. 5. I will speak about my healing journey in hopes to nudge others on their own healing journey. The interesting thing about healing is you might think you're healed in a particular area, but then something comes up to let you know you are not quite there and to keep going. It's not always the easiest, which makes it worth it.
I am a healer. Always have been.
Back Backstory: When I was around 7 years old, I used to rub my auntie's feet. She always said that my hands were so hot and that I had healing hands. I didn't think much of it then. I was just kid. Who knew? I guess my auntie.
After receiving my papers, I plan on being open one day weekly to be a conduit of the healing energies to assist in healing body/mind/spirit in recipients. Hope to see you!
Healing prayers sent to you, the world and the universe.
