Jennifer Llamas, Youth and Family Ministry Director
Our Youth Ministry lessons for 2020 have covered Unity’s 12 Powers, month by month. As we enter the month of December, we turn our focus to the Power of Life. In human terms, the concept of life is a finite, limited span of time. We have a concept of living from the moment of birth to the point of death or transition. However, our innate Power of Life is something much more magnificent; broader, deeper, and without limits. Our only-human concept of life equals mere existence. But our inborn Power of Life animates this existence and becomes recognizable as our essence – a quality that transcends time and space and support the manifestations of all we have come here to be.
There are three expressions of our Power of Life: Animation, Vitality, and Presence. These qualities will be examined one by one over the coming month. And all lead to the ultimate question of: what is the flow of our life? What is in motion for our life? What has come alive in you and in the world around you because of your intentional focus upon it?
Simply put, the Power of Life is the energy within us that inspires us to action. Aligning our thoughts and feeling with life energy helps us move forward in positive ways. As Unity co-founder Charles Fillmore stated, “The first step in the realization of life is always to know that God is life, abundant, omnipresent, eternal.” And, in Unity, we know that we contain a spark of this Divinity – we are life incarnate.
As you enter the week ahead, I encourage you to consider what your intentions are that have not yet blossomed in your life. Then, imagine how you can support their manifestation. Some ideas for bringing your Power of Life to fruition include visualization, vision boards, and holding thoughts at a high level of vibration. When you take time to meditate upon your goals and aspirations, you raise your vibration. You magnetize yourself, your human life, and then miraculously bump right into things, people, and circumstances that exist on this same plane – things that have previously been invisible to your human eye.
Your Power of Life is irrepressible. It is ever-renewing. It is indestructible. And it resides within your mind, heart, and soul. Open your heart to all that you have come here to be. Come along with us this month as we embark upon learning how to embrace the fullness and the limitlessness of our innate Power of Life. 2020 has been an unusual and unexpected year. Let’s raise our vibration, raise the level of possibility in the world around us, and embrace the undeniable, undefeatable, undaunted Power of Life that is our essence, our birthright, and our mighty strength!
