Name: Julie A Carda

After studying dance in Europe, Julie returned to the United States and graduated from Creighton University. With a desire to expand her knowledge of the arts and spirituality, she graduated from St. John’s University in Collegeville with a Masters in Theology and Liturgical Studies. Over the past twenty years, she has taught high school and college courses, and facilitated workshops on the healing arts while occasionally writing for academic periodicals. Her quest to acknowledge world religions and the desire to expose the similarities of love and peaceful living, led her to travel, live, and study with shaman practitioners, herbal healers, Native American medicine women, Buddhist priests and other earth-based spiritual teachers. Through these experiences and experiences with global metaphysical teachings, she learned to honor the eternal Source of love in all people. Besides writing fiction, Julie is co-creating a Space of Love through advocacy for Kin Domains.

Meadow in the Hills

I subscribe to positive imagery and thought which is why I'm such an advocate of The Ringing Cedar Series. In my work, I'm sometimes asked about the tools I use to support my higher Self. Although the answer is simple, I find I respond with complex explanations. Strip away the rhetoric, and quite simply put, the tools I use are singular. I pray.

Prayer is a common word understood by all people everywhere. If the word conjures dis-ease, then I say examine the cause. Prayer has only positive imagery. Prayer connects to Source alone. That Source is self-defined. I don't mind praying with others. I connect to all the "Sources" humans implore and embody in the image of goodness, light and love.

Most mornings I listen to a five minute segment by Marianne Williamson and The Course in Miracles. Each segment speaks right to my heart and moves me into a higher vibration. The prayers spoken in each segment shift my ego focus.

Below is a sample of her prayer. This prayer is filled with positive imagery to counter the negative image of recession and lack.

Dear God, may the infinite gifts that you have already given me come together now in such a way that rises above all impulses of limitations and despair.
