Quinton brought me to Unity

My son, Quinton Stone Jackson, brought me to Unity. I had been searching since I was sixteen when I first tried to read and comprehend the Old Testament.  The OT made more sense when I tried again in my mid-thirties, but still, there was a lot that I was unable to vibe with.  Not growing up with religion or a church, I began trying churches in my early thirties, even being baptized when I was about thirty years old, but there were no sky rockets and nothing much changed at all.  Change came later, but at some point I stopped searching.

When I was forty-four years old our son transitioned. Just to be clear, that is who is referred to above.  Having neither religion nor faith and not knowing what if anything happened when somebody died, I had absolutely no idea what to expect.  The shock and anger immediately began to change when our son began to visit.  His first visit came a mere thirty hours after he transitioned as I found my left hand being held while alone in a room.  It pierced my consciousness that Quinton was quite alive five days after the accident.  In that moment I realized “Quinton still is” and immediately wondered why I hadn’t known it worked that way.  Within eight weeks, I began reading everything I could get my hands on, in an effort to understand what was previously unknown to me.

In the years since, Quinton’s visits (signs) increased and in the dozens of books read, I experienced in text what Quinton had shown me. There is no death and nobody dies as each of us transition, leaving his or her physical body behind.  Most importantly, I learned this is true for everybody no matter religion or lack thereof, no matter ones color, sex or sexuality, political party or even if an individual was deemed decent or not.  This simple truth applies to everyone. 

Early in the journey of attempting to discover how this all was possible, I was gifted books about reincarnation through Brian Weiss M.D. and even read about our time spent between lives through Dr. Michael Newton. I read dozens of books, and then I read the New Testament, finally finding my way to the red print.  That first reading of the red print spoke to my soul and tied the pieces together.  Jesus’s teachings relating to the facts that we should not judge anybody, love everybody and the importance of forgiveness resonated with me and still do.

As my journey continued, I shared our experiences and what we were learning, published two books while folks I spoke with shared their experiences with me. Same experiences, mind you!  Kind of funny what you learn when you take the opportunity to actually speak with one another.  Along the way, somebody suggested I check out Unity Church…and I did!  I will never, ever forget that first visit and the synchronicities that came with it.  I wept silent tears as the Mission Statement was read, “Unity of Phoenix Spiritual Center is a loving spiritual community that welcomes all people and honors all paths to God.  We are dedicated to transforming lives by inspiring and awakening individuals to discover God’s Spirit within them.”  I realized I was home and in perfect alignment with the path Quinton Stone Jackson had set me upon.

Now I find myself on the Board of Trustees at Unity. I am one of many, each of us doing our part to strengthen the foundation of our Spiritual Center as we build toward our shared future.  We do so in Love, Gratitude and Appreciation for you and the Spiritual Center.  I can think of no greater honor as I share the gifts God gave me in ways that are useful and beneficial.  Not one of us is perfect, but there is purpose in all of our lives and we are in this together. Being together is where the magic happens.

In closing, know you are eternal and embrace your divinity. Cast out any judgement and Be The Light.

Namaste,
