Born in Detroit, Eddie was given a piano at age 7 by his grandmother who recognized his musical talent. He turned out to be a gifted musician & composer, playing piano, bass, guitar, drums & sax in junior high and high school. Eddie’s true love was the bass guitar; by age 17 Eddie continued his dream, playing bass for Motown’s Norman Whitfield, supporting artists like the Temptations, The Undisputed Truth, & other Motown greats.

When  Motown moved to LA, Eddie left Detroit, moved to Hollywood and made a name for himself as a premier “A list” session bass player. He lent his rock solid bass licks to recordings by Quincy Jones, Barbra Streisand, Herbie Hancock, Santana, Patti LaBelle, Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, the Pointer Sisters, James Brown & a who’s who of popular music icons.

Success & the fast life led Eddie to substance abuse, recovery & a spiritual search for deeper meaning which led to a spiritual awakening & a call to serve humanity through music. Eddie has served as musical director at the Center for Spiritual Living greater Las Vegas & the Center for Spiritual Living Seattle. Today with 6 CDs of original life-altering high consciousness music under his belt, Eddie is on tour across America raising the vibration of the planet with his music.

Forgiveness to “Give Forth”

 

Forgiveness to ‘Give Forth’

“God can only be Peace and Harmony. Let go all the tenseness in your body, forget all the mean feelings you may have, and let the body, emotions, and mind rest in a deep awareness of that Peace which is God.” Ernest Holmes – The Basic Ideas of Science of Mind P 39

I love Emma Curtis Hopkins’ breakdown of the word forgiveness, ‘for-give-ness’ or to ‘give forth.’ As a means to realign myself with the Harmony that God is, I ‘give forth’ any negative thoughts or false beliefs that I have about myself or others.  I ‘give forth’ any negative thoughts or false beliefs that ever suggested I, or anyone, could be separate from our Source and Creator.

Giving forth our negative thoughts and false belief is a means of clearing a path way for Spirit to operate in our lives. Anger, resentment and hurt, while important to honor, must at some point give way to forgiveness in order to continue our healing process and spiritual growth. This pathway is the richness of life. As we clear ourselves of the false idea that God is something other than who we are, other than our neighbor, we make way for the Truth of our Oneness. When we recognize this Truth we fill those newly cleared spaces with Spirit, expanding our consciousness for a joyfully rich and thriving life. Rev Dr Kathianne Lewis once said in reference to forgiveness that it is, “Total Surrender! You give-forth yourself so God can give all of Itself as you.”

Today forgive, allow yourself to be freed from false thoughts about yourself and others. Allow yourself to be freed from a focus on condition. Everything is possible in God.

I am a Center in the Divine Mind, by Ernest Holmes

This prayer by Ernest Holmes has personally carried me a great distance, through some of the most challenging times of my life. If I am hurting pain does not suddenly cease at these times, however, when I focus on the truth of who I am the pain I feel at life’s ups and downs is pure, not bloated by false stories or fears. A pure emotion is full of power, clarity and healing. Anytime I remind myself of Truth, that I am an extension and expression of the Divine and the Universe is conspiring for my Good, I once again ride with the magical flow of Life. I stand in awe of the mystery and allow myself to be pulled forward and called to my greater what’s next.

Say it for yourself. Say it for others. Speak Truth often and with conviction!

Peace, Love and Blessings, Holly

“I am a center in the Divine Mind, a point of God conscious life, truth and action.  My affairs are divinely guided and guarded into right action, into correct results.  Everything I do, say or think, is stimulated by the Truth.  There is power in this word that I speak, because it is of the Truth and it is the Truth.  There is perfect and continuous right action in my life and my affairs.  All belief in wrong action is dispelled.  Right action alone has power and right action is power, and Power is God…the Living Spirit Almighty.  This Spirit animates everything that I do, say or think.  Ideas come to me daily and these ideas are divine ideas.  They direct me and sustain me without effort.  I am continuously directed.  I am compelled to do the right thing at the right time, to say the right word at the right time, to follow the right course at all times.”

“All suggestion of limitation or unhappiness is uprooted from my mind and cannot gain entrance to my thought.  I am happy, well and filled with perfect Life.  I live in the Spirit of Truth and am conscious that the Spirit of Truth lives in me.  My word is law unto its own manifestation, and will bring to me or cause me to be brought to its fulfillment.  There is no unbelief, no doubt, no uncertainty. I know and I know that I know.  Let every thought of doubt vanish from my mind that I know the Truth and the Truth [made] me free.”
