We come from all different belief systems of religions and philosophies, and yet there is a common denominator. We are concerned with the over-proliferation of synthetic methods in caring for ourselves and our loved ones, including our companion animals. When speaking with members of the Holistic Mom's Network, it becomes more apparent that we need to help and offer those with a true belief in a more organic lifestyle a way to achieve such a goal.


In today's world in the U.S. we may belong to as many different religions as we wish (along with none of course). We may attend a church, synagogue, temple, meditate, pray and become a Minister Practitioner along with the rest.

A Minister Practitioner in the Lightwing Center has the right to offer counseling to anyone who is concerned about vaccinations. Please see below and go to the website of the parent church shown below for further information.

We believe that if we are offering a Certification program (the Raindrop Technique ® is simply the first of several), we know you are going to help others. By offering the Raindrop Technique ® there will be opportunities to assist in other capacities. We want you to be able, with your Ordination, to counsel anyone who is concerned, allow them to become a communicant (member of the church) and issue a Pastoral Letter when and if it is appropriate.

Each religious organization has specific Ministerial Directives. Lightwing Center's is applicable to all holistic health and spiritual healing practices.


What may not be approved of by government, local or federal, because of Licensure, can by practiced providing it is mandated by a Directive issued by a religious>For example the Code of Federal Regulations states:

Members of the Native American Church are exempt from federal criminal penalties for religious use of peyote.

We are a health freedom church dedicated to holistic healing practices, and Young Living, and you are covered in your Ministerial Practice by Ministerial Directive.

Welcome to Lightwing Center's HMPO class.


This is a checklist to help those who take this course.

There is a three-month window to complete all steps starting with the day you take the course.


You may select from the following *titles for your certificate:

  • Holistic Minister Practitioner
  • Licensed Holistic Practitioner
  • Rev
  • Reb
  • Chaplain
  • If you intend to perform weddings in the US, the title must reflect that you are a member of a clergy. Minister or Chaplain are acceptable for that purpose.


The IRS uses only one word for all religions. The term "Church" is their generic term. Minister and ordination are throughout the handbook you receive to be consistent with the IRS.


We send in the mail for the course, a handbook, 2 compliance agreements, 2 Letter of Direction contracts with a 2 page Letter of Direction, and a self-addressed stamped envelope along with an Evaluation Survey.


Compliance Agreements and Letter of Direction contracts:

The 2 original Agreements (Compliance) and the two Letter of Direction contracts need to be signed by you in front of a notary. They will already have our notarized signatures.

One of each you keep and either scan or photo for the iCloud or cloud so you always have it. When ready to email the Research Assignment, (use only those words for your Subject), you can attach a photo of the Agreement, the notarized contract for the Letter of Direction and the Instructor Evaluation Survey (double-sided).


Send us one of each, the agreement and the notarized contract in the envelope provided.

Research Assignment:

When ready to do your Research Assignment, after the class, open your handbook to that page and follow the instructions. It is important to wait until after class to do this assignment. Research submitted before the class will not be accepted.


In a few instances, someone has requested another title such as Chaplain.  If you prefer a different title than Rev., you must include that with your research assignment so we clearly know you have chosen something different.


What You Receive:

Upon receipt of your Notarized Agreement, completed Instructor Evaluation and your emailed Research Assignment being approved you will be sent the following:


  1. Your Ordination certificate.
  2. Business cards.
  3. 5 Seals from Lightwing Center

You will be invited to join our private Facebook group - LightwingCenterHolisticMinisters and added to our email list.

We are honored to have you as part of our community!  I'll be emailing your donation letters after the class so keep an eye out for them.

After teaching in Chicago January, 2013:

Hello Nancy,

This is JoAnna Nunes. I just wanted to say a sincere thank you for the sharing of your energy and time this past Friday and Saturday.

I believe every human being has a responsibility to minister to one another and to themselves.(Which I find even harder!)

What continues to resonate with me is the healing power at our fingertips with Young Living Oils. What a gift. Prior to this past weekend, I looked for absolutes. The perfect answer to every need or question. Now I feel I have been given "permission" to go within and just trust. You helped me throw away the doubt and let in the faith.

I am very excited to review my notes and let the information sink in further. (While listening to my C.D. of course!) (Inner Journeys for Healing CD)

I look forward to officially being part of the wonderful Ministry of Lightwing Center- a true reflection of my personal belief system.

Now, time to compose my research paper!

In gratitude,

JoAnna Nunes

LifeSpirit Congregational Church
Statement of Doctrine and Belief
On Vaccination and Other Abominations
Pastoral Counseling Letters
Religious Injunction . . .

The LifeSpririt Congregational Church is a duly recognized group exempt organization.
Federal ID No. 23-7406902, established in 1974.
Date: December 23, 2002
To: LCC Ministers, Elders and Communicants.
Re: By-Law on Religious Beliefs regarding Vaccination

Many of the ministers and elders of the LifeSpirit Congregational Church are deeply troubled by the proliferation of vaccination and the spiritual harm arising from this invasion of the Body Temple, and have asked for Guidance from the Church. Such Guidance has been received directly from Source. This is an obligatory statement of doctrine and belief, binding upon all communicants, their children and companion animals.

The Ministers of the Church are authorized by the Church to engage in pastoral counseling with communicants who are concerned about the morality of vaccination and other abominations, and to issue, when the Minister is reasonably certain of the beliefs of the communicant, a Pastoral Counseling Letter to the communicant attesting to the individual's sincere religious objection to vaccination or other abomination. Such letter may also include minor children, companion animals and other dependents.

Religious Injunction

Thus says the Source: "Thou shalt not allow the entry of abominations and unholiness into the bodies of thine children and thine own selves, for they are Gods’ Temples and sacred unto thine Source."

Source states: "LCC communicants are specifically directed by their ecclesiastical supervisors to object to, and refuse, any of the following unholiness and abominations, entering the Body Temples of themselves or their children as a violation of the free exercise of their religious beliefs and the moral obligations of their religion: the administering of vaccinations, human or other blood, chemo-therapy, radiation and other non-natural remedies are declared to be unholy abominations; the use of injection or otherwise to administer abominations is declared to interfere with the practice of religion."

The making of this Religious Injunction, and adhering to it by communicants, is declared to be the Religious Expression of the LifeSpirit and an exercise of our Expressive Association.

Religious Injunction: Obligations of Communicants and Instructions to Parents

Based upon the consensus of the ministers and elders, this Statement of Doctrine and Religious Injunction is posted on the Church web site,, as a Church By-Law for downloading by all believers and communicants who are hereby authorized to present same to school or other authorities as the basis for our religious objection to any vaccination or other abominations that violates our Belief in the sacred nature of the Person, by including any of the spiritually objectionable substances listed above, or by being administered in violation of the Religious Injunction set forth herein.

Parents are enjoined to object to vaccination upon the ground that the proposed immunization interferes with the free exercise of the pupil’s religious rights and that the administration of vaccination or other abomination interferes with religious belief and exercise, violating the Expressive Association of the communicants.

Thus the Source has spoken, and so it is.

Given in Faith and Love,

Rev. Ralph Fucetola JD
Trustee & Council of Prophets
