Evolution of Self-Care

— Rev. Melody Bailey


I mindfully fill my cup up with the love of who I am.

Self-care is an integral part of our human experience. Your evolution depends on your commitment to self-care.

Join Rev. Melody this Sunday, June 4 at 10:30am PT at Studio 9, 1180 Houghton Road, Kelowna, BC. Doors open at 10:15am. Please visit the event page for more details and a map. Everyone is welcome!

If you are not feeling well, please take good care of yourself and watch us on Facebook Live.


The SOM theme for June is Embracing Self-Care. To live your life to the fullest, self-care must be embraced in daily practice to help you remember who you are. To know who you are, you must be aware of the unlimited possibilities that can be unlocked when you harness the potential of your real beingness. Through self-awareness of the mind, body, and spirit, you realize that you are a perfect entity and that you have all that you need for unlimited success and unconditional love.

This Week’s Science of Mind Theme

Evolution of Self-Care

Self-care has evolved to mean that by training and feeding the mind with creative thoughts that build and strengthen your body, mind and spirit, you are more prone to build strong self-worth, which helps you be joyful, healthy and wealthy. Your commitment to self-care affects your life, and also the lives of all the people and places you surround yourself with.

When you become aware of your spiritual perfection and tap into the mind's abilities to create the ideal life for you, you realize there is no specific image to look up to for perfection, but you. You only need to look within to come in contact with who you truly are, harness your potential, and eventually become the best you can be.

To unlock the mind's full potential, you must complete these three steps: thought, feelings, and action. For example: “You can't think about going to work in the morning and expect your thoughts to take you there.”


Lights, Camera, Action!

Last weekend, Rev. Jeanette Vinek gave a talk titled Lights, Camera, Action!

Tanya Lipscomb opened the service.

Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelujah!

Tanya sang James Brown's I Feel Good.

Tanya then sang Om mani padme hum.

Rev. Corinne Crockett made the announcements.

Practitioner Irene Kowalchuk gave the treatement.

People stayed for a chat after the service…

… and volunteer Val brought out the trolley with coffee and sweets.

Watch the full service on YouTube.


The Results of Our Pride Work Bees

This past Wednesday, May 31, we had our third and final Pride Work Bee for this year's Pride Festival. We finished making an abundance of bookmarks (someone guessed a total of 7,000! It's probably closer to another guess of 200). The 125 rainbow-coloured cooling neck wraps are almost all done, save for a bunch that have a tiny bit of final stitching that Rev. Corinne Crockett has volunteered to finish off at home. Thank you, Rev. Corinne!

It was our biggest group of all three nights.

Back L-R: Val, Jan, Rev. Diane, Kathy, Martin, Lori, Maureen, Rev. Corinnne.

Front L-R: Annie, Magda, Tracy, Ingrid, Jean.

Everyone kept busy. Some stayed with one task all evening; others swapped jobs. Click on any image to enlarge and scroll through them as a slide show.

Thank you, everyone, for all your diligent work and dedication! Our booth is going to be very popular with these fun give-aways!
