CSLGH Giving Teaches Our Kids to Give Back

GivingOne of the objectives of the Center for Spiritual Living is to give back to our community to achieve our goal of making the world a better place for everyone.

We volunteer at events like Relay for Life and the Los Angeles River Cleanup, a local shelter for women and children, and many others.

What you may not know is that every week, we choose a non-profit that is in alignment with our goal, tithe and make a donation to that organization.

(What is a tithe? Read our blog posts on tithing and prosperity.)

We involve our members in the process by providing a Giving Basket where members can submit the names of non-profits that need donations. Members simply fill out the name of the charitable non-profit organization and put it in the basket. Every week we draw a name for the donation.

Recently our Board of Trustees decided that we needed to make the Giving Basket more visible, and someone recommended that we go to our Youth, Tween and Teen ministries for help. Our Tween ministry volunteer Lissa Moreno stepped up to the task and spent two Sundays with the Tweens creating a new Giving Basket.

To create the new Giving Basket, the Tweens talked about different organizations that help others. They drew pictures , wrote the names of various charities, and literally wove them into the fabric of our giving basket. The result is truly something to be proud of!

The Tweens got to be creative, and, in the process, they learned about the concept of charitable giving and discussed what kind of organizations exist to help others and rely on charitable giving.

Center for Spiritual Living Granada Hills is excited to continue our efforts in giving back to our community, which, through our members and member donations, reaches local businesses around us, our local schools and community organizations, spreading out to the Greater Los Angeles area, other states and even other countries. We are so grateful to our members who tithe and donate to us so that we can give back!

Some the of charitable organizations CSLGH has made donations to recently include:

New Prosperity Plus Program Starts July 9 at Center for Spiritual Living

ProsperityIf you just landed on this blog post, it must mean you should attend the next Prosperity Plus program at the Center for Spiritual Living Granada Hills!

This is a very popular program by Mary Morrissey that starts on Thursday, July 9, 2015.

If you are seeing this after Thursday, July 9th, please contact our Center for Spiritual Living Granada Hills using our contact page or by calling 818-363-8136. We may be able to add you to the class.

Prosperity Plus is a very popular program at our Center. But, before we go on and on about that, let’s start by dispelling some of the myths about prosperity.

First, prosperity is not just about money and your bank account. Prosperity also includes health, your spiritual experiences, your career, and your relationships.

Second, only some people are prosperous. In the teaching of the Centers for Spiritual Living, we are all prosperous. You may not know this, but right now you have everything you need, and your thoughts influence what you get. Do your thoughts reflect lack and limitation or are you focused on positive, prosperous thoughts? We believe that through the power of positive thinking, you can achieve everything you want.

Third, prosperity is due to luck. Some people win the lottery; some people have a good life; some people are healthy; some people are happy. Wrong. All people have an opportunity to live a good life. It is already happening if you accept it!

Will you accept Prosperity in your life? Meet some new and wonderful people who will support your desire to change and grow? Find a way to begin achieving health, wealth and happiness?

The program goes for 10 weeks and the time is from 7:00 to 9:00 PM.

Check out our Prosperity Plus information page on the website. Call us at 818-363-8136 if you have questions or to sign up. Take that first step to make your life change in ways you never imagined possible. We’d love to have you join us at Prosperity Plus in Granada Hills!

Affirmative Prayer Treatment: Prosper and Thrive in 2015!

FireworksThis post includes an Affirmative Prayer Treatment by Reverend Kathy Lyons.

Affirmative Prayer Treatment is a form of prayer used by Dr. Ernest Holmes, founder of Religious Science and author of The Science of Mind as well as many other metaphysical works. A treatment is focused on a positive outcome rather than a negative situation. If you want to manifest a certain condition (perfect health, wealth, or relationships for example), say the treatment out loud as the truth, knowing that it is so!

I recognize that there is One Power, One Presence, which is God. God is love, perfect health, abundant wealth, and creativity. God is everywhere present, expressing through me as me as loving and joyful relationships, health and vitality, financial prosperity, creativity and Divine livelihood.

I declare that right now that I prosper and thrive in 20-1-5. As I mediate and contemplate this Magnificent Presence within, I accept greater good into my life. I thrive with perfect health. I love and nurture my physical body, so I intuitively know how to nourish it with the perfect nutrition, activity, and rest. I am a lovable, supportive, and wonderful companion, so I attract loving, supportive companions. God is my Source and supply, so I am prospering financially. I embody Divine financial wisdom, freedom, and wealth, so I have plenty to share and to spare. I embody unique talents and skills, so my Divine purpose is now revealed to me, and I am expressing it with passion. Therefore, I flourish in my career.

The New Year is a time of renewal and new beginnings. Life is an adventure, so I am open to new and exciting experiences. Any desire that I have is now accessible to me. There is no big or small in the Mind of God, so all the channels are open for me to receive it now. I prosper and thrive 20-1-5!

I am so thankful and appreciative for the new beginnings that I am experiencing right now – loving relationships, perfect health, abundant wealth, and creativity. My heart is filled with gratitude as I prosper and thrive in 20-1-5!

I release my word into the Infinite Mind of God, knowing it is done. And so it is.

Rev. Kathy Lyons

We Are All Trust Fund Babies!

IN GOD WE TRUSTcollageYou all know what a Trust Fund Baby is, yes?

A young person whose parents are wealthy and have set up a trust for their son or daughter. The trust fund ensures that the child will be taken care of financially for life.


Recently I told the Wednesday Night “Practicing the Presence” crowd at the Center for Spiritual Living Granada Hills that we are all trust fund babies.  In fact, our trust fund is bigger than any financial trust fund that has ever been set up for a child. Because our source and supply of all life is God and we know that we are not separate from God,  we have an infinite trust fund at our disposal. Our trust fund has more than money in it – it has everything that God is – love, peace, joy, light, beauty, health, power, life, creativity. Literally, more than we can imagine.

The challenge is to have access to our trust fund when we need it.  And that has everything to do with our mindset. People who use the Science of Mind tools have better access to infinite Source because of how we live.  We create a mindset that has an easy access to God.

We are our own best way to our infinite trust fund.

We can live life feeling good- healthy, wealthy, and wise no matter what condition our lives look like. We know we were not sent into the world to live a defeated, sick, unhappy life. We are ordained for happiness, health and prosperity.

Science of Mind says we demonstrate according to the level of our own thinking. An unhappy person will reflect conditions of unhappiness. A person with poverty consciousness cannot accept prosperity. Success and prosperity are spiritual attributes belonging to all people, but not necessarily used by all people.  In Science of Mind we learn how to use our spiritual attributes. But it is not a “get-rich-quick” scheme; Science of Mind has never promised something for nothing. It does promise us that we manifest according to the nature of our consciousness.

The whole purpose of the universe is to grant us the very best. God ensures us that we are taken care of for life.  And, guess what? Our money reminds us all the time that we are Trust Fund Babies-
