ADL Blog-Essence of the Month_Rose-2021_02

by Rev. Shellie Enteen

February holds Valentine’s Day, our holiday of hearts. For this reason, it has become the Month of Love. But no matter when or where Love is invoked and honored, we may find the rose.

It is impossible to fully chronicle the history of man’s love affair with roses in a short article. Its beauty, aromatic qualities and effects have been cherished since historical records of time began. We know that it was one of the first essences to be extracted and chosen for personal fr…

ADL Blog-Bach Flower of the Month_Water Violet-2021_02

by Rev. Shellie Enteen

The Solar Rays are in the fixed air sign Aquarius as February begins. Dr. Bach chose Water Violet for the sign of Aquarius and describes it as: “For those who in health or illness like to be alone. Very quiet people, who move about without noise, speak little, and then gently. Very independent, capable, and self-reliant. Almost free of the opinions of others. They are aloof, leave people alone and go their own way. Often clever and talented. Their peace and calmness are a…

ADL Blog-Our Solstice Cairn Maker Rev Ed Carrasquillo -2021_01

By Revs. Brian and Pam Crissey

Here in Western North Carolina, we gathered 20 people around a sacred fire that was started ceremoniously at the moment of solstice at 5:04 a.m. and kept going until sunset. Everyone was smudged, and we carried out the ancient Aboriginal commencement ceremony for gathering around a fire, each one facing the fire, giving a gift, tapping Mother Earth six times and then being joined by the next one to the right, until all tapped together six times and the group was a…

By Rev. Randy Fillmore

"What's In A Name?"

Over the past several years, the membership and make-up of the Alliance of Divine Love has changed - and that’s a good thing.

My observation is that we as an organization are no longer lone islands of light scattered around the country and some other far-away lands. We are no longer defined by our regional affiliations. We are no longer limited through long-distance calling periods.

As our organization has matured and evolved, we now seem to be conn…

Essence of the Month: Lavender (January 2021)

ADL Blog-Essence of the Month_Lavendar-2021_01

by Rev. Shellie Enteen

There is no better way to begin the Aromatic Year than with a discussion of Lavender (Lavandula officinalis), as it is generally thought of as “the one essence to have if you can have only one.” The beautiful purple flowers have made Lavender a popular garden plant in many countries. From ancient times, it has been used as a strewing, sachet, and bath herb (its name deriving from the Latin lavare, to wash.) For aromatic qualities, the finest Lavender is produced in Englan…
