It started with me thinking about the Trinity: Father, son or daughter, and Holy Spirit Mother. The Father is like the sun. He gives us life and helps us to grow. In the book, "The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ"by Levi, the ideas of the Trinity are revealed. The Father is the will of God. The son or daughter is the Christ or love of God. The Holy Spirit, or Holy Breath is the truth, faith, wisdom, and thought of God.

The Father's will is supreme. One of my spiritual teachers always said, "There is only one will." God's will and our will are together in Spirit. How could there be only one will? If everything is truly in divine order, then everything that is happening to us comes with the will of the Father. Because I have personally seen so much suffering, I have learned that there is always a divine reason for it. I don't believe it happens haphazardly. All suffering comes to us for a purpose.

The Christ is the perfect son or daughter of God. Jesus came to earth to teach us the love of God made manifest. He perfected his soul, in many lifetimes, to become the vehicle for the Christ Spirit to work entirely through him. Edgar Cayce, the famous seer, said that Jesus was Adam. Because of the "fall" of man, Jesus was destined to become the Christ. We are all on that same path. Jesus came to show us how all men and women will eventually become "Christed" beings. This will usher in the 1,000 years of peace promised to us in the Bible.

The Holy Spirit or Holy Breath brings us many gifts. As a divine part of the Trinity, She is Mother. We have a Father, we have a Son or Daughter, so the Holy Spirit becomes Holy Spirit Mother. We have been missing the divine feminine for centuries. It is time to bring Her back.

It is time to acknowledge the divine Mother, the eternal Goddess. Sorry guys, we are taking back our rightful place in the cosmos. If we are truly made in the image of God, there are an awful lot of women running around the planet - all made in the divine image. As the title of a current book says"God Wears Lipstick". She also wears high heels and a skirt!

The Holy Spirit brings us seven gifts. "The spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord" (Isaiah 11:1-3).

What struck me one day was the cover of Unity's "Daily Word," "The breath of God makes the ice" (Job 37:10). I started thinking of how we receive truth. When we are speaking, or someone else is speaking, we get chills through our bodies. It is usually when we are saying something very important.

It also happens when we are experiencing communication from the other side of the "veil." People describe it as getting "goose bumps" or that, "Every hair on my body stood up." The chills of truth lets us verify that truth is being told in the moment.

If Holy Spirit Mother is the truth of God, the icy chills of truth are a built-in barometer that lets us know when we are in a moment of knowledge. My tai chi teacher once said to me, "There's something about the icy regions." Is it that the mountains are closer to heaven? When the snow falls, it blankets all in a renewing order. It makes all things new and the same. It helps us to create the "oneness" of us all.

In a dream I saw myself bundled up and trekking through the mountains in ice and heavy snows. In the icy regions it is the hardest to get around, to move from one place to another. I felt as if I was on some great testing ground. The fact that ice can transform into three stages reveals a creative process. Water changes from solid ice, to liquid water, to vapor steam. Maybe the states of water are translated as solid (body), liquid (mind), and steam (spirit).

The element water is symbolic of our emotions. Our bodies are 70-to-80 percent water. Like the tides of the sea being effected by the magnetism of the moon, maybe we too are receiving verification of the truth from our emotions - the watery element in our own bodies.

Quartz crystal is said to be petrified water. Water has been found on the inside of crystal formations. All quartz crystals are six-sided, like all snowflakes. Quartz has a piezo- electric quality, meaning that it has an electrical change emanating from it.

As we become more evolved, we become transmitters of divine energy - the life force. Maybe the quartz crystal is the final stage of waters transformation. As Masaru Emoto captures in his book,"The Messages of Water," water reflects what thoughts are being directed to it. Water is natures first perfect mirror. It mirrors to us the truth of the moment. What a mystery!

If the Holy Breath of God makes the ice, then the Fathers will is like fire. The holy will is like the sun, pushing us to grow and flourish. The sun touches us all, much like the rain and snow. Healing of our physical bodies comes to us with vibrations of heat and also with vibrations of cold.

I do like to categorize ideas in my little world. If it sounds right to me, then I make it a part of my daily life. In our physical bodies, above the waist is heaven, below the waist is earth. We have all the planets and stars within us, and all the elements that are necessary for our healing. The sun and moon are part of our beings.

The chills we feel are a way we can connect with the divine truth within. Let us become aware, in each moment, of the opportunity of Spirit speaking to us to confirm the wisdom set before us.
