Welcome to Deborah-Marie Diamond’s blog! I invite you to join me an adventure of life enhancing conversations. Having been a spiritual teacher, public speaker, and healer for too many years to mention, I thought it would be a grand time in history to open a conversation about how to be in this new world. As a New thought Minister, I will offer daily practices to help support your journey. Tease you with questions. Stretch your imagination and hopefully bring joy and peace to your heart. The topics I write about are also topics I speak about. I am passionate about the health and welfare of our Planet. I have for years taught classes in reconnecting to Mother Earth and new ways to support her life force. And, I am passionate on doing my part to raise human consciousness.
In college my Professor of Rhetoric and Public Address at the University of Oregon, challenged me to discover the real meaning in life. He had taught us a simple concept meditation, a technique that after quieting your mind you focus on one concept or idea. I was focusing on love, the true meaning of love when the gates of the universal opened up. I was in a vast void of loving energy, the heart of Creation. It was very silent and then across the landscape of this vast presence huge letters appeared that were said by a booming voice, “WE ARE ALL ONE.” My body shook with excitement and anticipation. As if truth had just penetrated every cell in my body. I ran to the phone to call my professor, Dr. LaRusso to tell him I had discovered the truth of life!
I knew somewhere deep inside me that I would spend the rest of my life figuring out what that booming message meant. At twenty, of course, I had no idea that I would also spend my life sharing my discoveries. And so it continues. The journey has taken many forms, theatre coach and teacher, Communication Director of public schools, campaign manager for levy elections, radio and television talk show host, Founder and Minister of a church, healer, Founder and Director of Diamond Healing and Education, Inc. a school to train practitioners of Energy Medicine and so forth. In all the work, the resounding thread was “WE ARE ALL ONE.” And we are.
In all these venues, it all came back to reconnecting people to themselves, their truth, and their hearts. For it is only in your heart that you connect with the greater connection.
Now, decades later with all the scientific evidence of our interconnectedness, a strong spiritual movement to heal our minds and souls, many of us still can only understand “WE ARE ALL ONE,” in an intellectual way. Because nothing is separate from the One, everything is part of the story of our oneness, even our intellectualizing of it.
I invite you to join me in an expanded conversation of oneness and how it applies to you, the world around you, and the survival of our species.
