The Rodan Foundation's Publication for the Metaphysical Church of Enlightenment, July 2022

 In 1981, Reverend Clarke Carraway founded The Rodan Foundation with the intention of creating a powerful, growing community of awakening beings who experience love, peace, prosperity, unity, healing, harmony, and revelation through learning and service. The Rodan Foundation, recognizing the Law of Cause and Effect, expresses gratitude for the many blessings it reaps from the community's experiences.

Welcome! Join with us in our dynamic weekly services where we discover our true purpose in an emerging world.  Experience the revelation of our collective awakening to the power of love, the wonder of our multi-dimensional capacities, and the joy in reclaiming earth as our home. Sunday mornings provide the opportunity to celebrate life with like-minded beings and experience personal reassurance  and empowerment through the spiritual messages of Reverend Carraway's mediumship. We look forward to your participation enhancing our community. 



Love generates hope, and hope is the window of future possibilities that serve the highest good for the whole.

Often, the light in our hope dims and is obscured by chaos and our own mental and emotional blocks, such as fear, judgment, prejudice, and separation. As we practice heart qualities like love, care, compassion, kindness, and cooperation, along with becoming more responsible for our personal energy expenditures, we can become architects of a new sense of hope and live according to our deeper values and higher quality choices.

As more people connect with their own heart’s intelligent guidance and practice the qualities of the heart, we can individually and collectively experience more peace, happiness, and satisfaction in our lives. This makes a valuable contribution to the whole and creates more hope for each other and planet earth.

The world will start to look better as we begin to upgrade the patterns and habits of how we treat each other. As we become more compassionate, more forgiving, and more eager to put the past behind us, this will draw more hopeful solutions for the seemingly insurmountable challenges we are experiencing. As we learn to get along with each other, then planet earth joins in and becomes more accommodating.

Building trust in our heart’s intuitive guidance leads to uplifting possibilities and the increased capacity to manifest them, along with many other upturns we’ve long hoped for. Opening our hearts to each other creates a constant renewal of our sense of hope and optimism for the future. Hope from our genuine heart is a most powerful magnetic draw for manifestation; it’s a gift from our spirit, and it’s well worth keeping the flame rekindled.

To increase hope for a better future, we can learn to connect with our available heart’s guidance that’s within all of us. This connection, born from love and care, can unfold the higher qualities of life we are looking for, and above all – increased joy and fulfillment.

When we genuinely commit to increasing our love and kindness for each other, new hope comes with the package. Having hope is important, but it’s time to start creating forward steps along with it – not just waiting for hope to put solutions on our doorstep. A good first start is to begin expressing more care and compassion and bringing it to the street in our day-to-day interactions, then the rest will unfold. Doing this can get easier than not doing it once we break through the inertia accumulated from our old predictable patterns and reactions. We were born to love, respect and cooperate with each other, and collective humanity is starting to move in that direction, although it may not seem like it at this time.

We are experiencing a transitional period, and this won’t last forever. It obviously will go on for a while – until more of us decide to open our hearts to compassionate care and create a different world from what we’ve created thus far. Eventually, our hearts will have had enough of the old and want to pioneer these new changes. We can do this. The most important step is to add more heart energy to our interactions. We are not bad folks; we are just waking up to the good in us.
