Too Blessed to Be Stressed!

Saturday, August 19th, 2017

Yesterday, I was flying from Phoenix to Maine, but only made it as far as Philadelphia.  First, my 7:30 a.m. flight was delayed until 11 a m.  I had to rebook my connecting flight from Philly to Portland.

Then, we sat on the tarmac a long time before takeoff.  Once we landed in Philadelphia, we sat on the tarmac again for a long time because everything was grounded due to the lighting and rainstorm happening all around us.

When I finally got off the plane, I found out that my flight to Maine, would have been long gone had it not been delayed.

There were no seats on the later flight and fortunately, because American Airlines had me delayed all day long, they put me up in a Hilton Hotel by the airport.  So glad it’s more upscale and nicer than some hotels I’ve been in.

It was a long day.  I got a lot done on my phone and laptop.  And, I was never really bothered by any of it.  I felt harmonious and peaceful the entire day – which started with the redcap at the airport accidentally charging me an extra $160 for my bags, and then telling me I’d have to call American Airlines for my refund.

It was a day of mishaps and yet, I felt so grateful at the end of the day because none of it really mattered and I’ll get there in the end.  I got to bless and be a blessing all day long.  I had an empty seat next to me.  I had the good sense to call American Airlines rather than wait in the light that had about 150 people in it.  I walked down to the ticket counter to ask about the hotel, rather than wait in a different line, and there was no one in line ahead of me when I got there!

And I’m grateful that my flight today is early, but not too early.

While certain things didn’t go as I had planned, there was a plan that God had.  Sometimes, I think these things happen just so I can see how unbotherable I am and where I still have attachments.

I feel way too blessed to be stressed.  All of life is blessing me and I wish to travel through my days being a blessing and receiving the blessings.  Blessings abound and I’d like to receive them all!

Great Rays

Thursday, August 17th, 2017

As Lightworkers, we’re holding the high watch for ourselves and for all.  This is part of why we asked to incarnate at this time. “Holding the high watch” means that we’re actively energizing the highest and best is always unfolding at all times.  We are actively energizing that the spiritual qualities are active in our hearts and minds, in our lives and expressions in each and every moment.

What are the spiritual qualities?

Love
Peace
Joy
Freedom
Abundance
Wisdom
Clarity
Harmony
Purity
Prosperity
Wholeness
Compassion and more.

These spiritual omnipresent, omniactive energies that are our very nature.  A Course in Miracles calls them the, “Great Rays.”  In other mystical teachings, they are called “Sacred Rays,” or “Sacred Flames”.

Two of my favorite passages from A Course in Miracles refers to the Great Rays as our very nature:

In many only the spark remains, for the Great Rays are obscured.  Yet God has kept the
spark alive so that the Rays can never be completely forgotten.  If you but see the little spark you
will learn of the greater light, for the Rays are there unseen.  Perceiving the spark will heal, but
knowing the light will create. 5 Yet in the returning the little light must be acknowledged first, for
the separation was a descent from magnitude to littleness.  But the spark is still as pure as the
Great Light, because it is the remaining call of creation.  Put all your faith in it, and God Himself
will answer you.  T-10.IV.8.

These spiritual qualities of God are our essence, they are our very being.  We are OF God.  We are in the world, but not OF it.  We are the microcosm and God is the macrocosm.  These spiritual qualities that are the very beingness of God are our beingness, too. For we are One, not separate.

We can activate these spiritual qualities at any time.  We can return to an awareness of the truth that sets us free, and that’s what we’re doing when we’re holding the High Watch.

A Course in Miracles reminds us to remember our mission as Lightworkers:

As the ego would limit your perception of your brothers to the body, so would the Holy
Spirit release your vision and let you see the Great Rays shining from them, so unlimited that they
reach to God.  It is this shift to vision that is accomplished in the holy instant.  Yet it is needful
for you to learn just what this shift entails, so you will become willing to make it permanent.
Given this willingness it will not leave you, for it is permanent.  Once you have accepted it as the
only perception you want, it is translated into knowledge by the part that God Himself plays in the
Atonement, for it is the only step in it He understands.  Therefore, in this there will be no delay
when you are ready for it.  God is ready now, but you are not.  T-15.IX.1.

Our willingness is what’s required for us to remember who our brothers and sisters are, and in doing so, we remember who we are and we all awaken together.  This is being truly helpful.

I rely each day on my awareness of the Great Rays as our inheritance.  I actively see them awake and alive in through and around us.  I pray for all beings every day.  I pray for you and with you everyday, as I invite you to pray for me and with me, and for ALL every day.

We have our wake up call and we are answering!  We are releasing our vision to the Higher Holy Spirit Self, the mighty I AM Presence so that we can see, know, feel and hear with absolute Clarity.  We hold our vision high and in this way we are most truly and profoundly helpful!

Right now, when all that is unhealed is coming to the surface so it can be released, we are being pulled (and pushed) to live our destiny and fulfill our mission as Lightworkers.  We hold the high watch for all and see the Great Rays shining from them, regardless of what they seem to be saying or doing!  Love is alive in all of us!  The spark is there – when we see it, we ignite it.

Let’s get to our work today and be grateful for the Light that we are!

Serve

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

If I affirm there’s a problem that needs fixing then I’m firmly anchored in the thought that the Divine has disappeared; God has left the building. The only thing required for a healing is for me to see the situation rightly. As long as I see a problem it will be there for me to see. As long as I affirm that things aren’t right I won’t be able to see rightly.

My job, as a one who lives in service to the Light in all beings, is to remember the truth that sets us free.  I can take no breaks.  When I fall down, it hurts, and I’m not the only one who suffers.  With the help of the angels and the ascended masters, I get back up as quick as I can.  I am employed by God, Inc. and I AM ever so grateful to be of service this day.

The Infinite has no problems that elude its problem-solving abilities, because there are no problems in Divine Mind. It is I who sees the problem, affirms the problem, identifies the problem and collects all the evidence to support the existence of the big, bad problem. In each of these stages of problem identification I become increasingly convinced that the problem is real and threatening. It feels more and more like God has left the building and I need to solve this problem that is eating my life!

Forgiveness frees me.
Forgiveness is the release of my judgments and opinions.
My forgiveness frees us ALL.

Every problem is built on the often hidden belief that God has left the building. It can be very tricky to see that the fear that God is gone is the only problem. Since the Divine never goes on a vacation or hides it’s Divinity, the whole problem I’m creating a library of evidence to support is, in truth, completely a fabrication of a fearful mind. It’s all based on the false premise of: “What if I were separate from God?”

Healing happens when I recognize every challenge has come to help me be more loving, more kind, more compassionate, more in line with my Divine nature. End of story.

It’s so simple, and yet fear is pervasive unless I stand anchored in the truth of omnipresent Divinity. This is my job. This is my only job. All else I give to the One who has never left and can never leave. In my surrender I discover that my only prayer request is for the faith to know the Divine in every part of my life and always will be. The Holy Presence cannot leave the building, it IS the building and everything that surrounds it, everything it contains. God cannot leave me, nor can I leave God.

Working Miracles

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

There’s a miraculous life available to each of us if we’re willing to receive it. This healing is our awakening to our divinity and the divinity of all life. It’s an inside job, and yet we’re not alone in it. We’re not on our own, unless we choose to perceive it that way.

What I’ve noticed in myself and see in many others on this miracle path is there’s a strong pull to be on our own. We think we’re on our own and we have to deal with our issues ourselves. We think we have to figure it out, but it’s not true.

Our responsibility is to remember that we’re all one and to be in tune with the One Mind.  Doing this, we remember how to live a miraculous life.

We don’t have to figure out HOW to heal, but when we’re truly willing everything will be laid out for us.

It seems really difficult sometimes, but that’s a mind-game. The ego mind tells us it’s complicated and difficult, and impossible – but it’s not. How do I know?

Love is the healer.
Love is the ONLY healer.

Love is not difficult or challenging – what’s difficult is being unloving, holding grudges, and being defensive.  What’s challenging is TRYING to be loving while clinging to judgments and opinions, anger and resentment, doubt and hurt. That’s excruciating, difficult, and it’s also impossible.

When we are willing to love fully and completely, starting with ourselves, the miracle HAS to happen.  When we’re loving, the miracle IS happening.  We don’t have to love perfectly in every moment.  We only have to be willing.  Get it?

Why delay?
Start today!

Be willing to be authentically miraculous and just be yourself – it’s a tremendous act of Love!

Hidden Blessings

Saturday, August 12th, 2017

It took me a very long time to realize that everything, and I do mean EVERYTHING, works together for my good.  I had to be willing to hang out and see things with the long view, over time.

There have been so many things in my life that were very difficult and intense for me, but that eventually, I’ve been able to see that they were for my best.  I’ve learned that being willing to accept that they possibly could be for my highest and best helped me to find my way to that realization.

I used to feel a strong need to judge and label things as quickly as possible.  It gave my ego a false sense of security, but it wasn’t actually helpful to me.

I’m grateful that I can now clearly see that many things that didn’t go the way I wanted them to have actually been a blessing.  I’ve learned to see the blessings in the painful relationship, getting fired, being deceived, being ignored and left out, being injured, getting sick, and many other things that my ego originally labeled as “bad.”

I’ve learned to say, “I can’t wait to see the blessing in this!”  I’ve learned to feel assured the blessing is there whether I can see it, feel it or have any sense of it.

Just because it looks like a bummer, doesn’t mean that it isn’t for my highest and best.  Why judge it as bad if that doesn’t make me feel good?

Once again, my willingness is the key to living a blessed life.

Is there something you’re rejecting as wrong and bad that could actually be a tremendous blessing for you?

Guidance

Friday, August 11th, 2017

I’ve had many folks ask me over the years, “How do I hear the voice of God?  How do I know if it’s intuition or ego?” This is such an important and valuable question to ask! The answer is, the ego will always have a fear based conversation, the ego voice has attitude and judgment in it.  Whereas, the voice of the Higher Holy Spirit Self, our Guides and Angels, is usually devoid of attitude of any kind.  It can sometimes feel insistent and strong, but it doesn’t ever feel opinionated.

So often, if we want to validate our opinions, we’ll be confused about the guidance, intuition and insight we’re receiving.  If we’re truly interested in hearing the guidance then we simply relax into the listening.  You can open your mind to whatever it is – allow it to at least land in your mind and ripple out into your awareness before you give it the heave ho!

On many, MANY occasions I’ve been in a counseling or teaching situation with someone and I get a very strong guidance from that person’s guides and angels of what they’d like me to tell the person.  Sometimes, it feels like the Angels are so “loud” and strong, but it’s really more that they are clear and I’m willing to listen and the person they have a message for has not been honoring the guidance they’re getting.  When that is the case, so often, when I speak the guidance the person says, “I get that thought all of the time!  Every day!  For years now!”  This has been my experience countless times.

I have had to learn not to go into judgment and think, “they SHOULD listen!  They SHOULD act on their guidance.”  My opinion isn’t helpful to anyone.  I do the best I can to share the guidance over and over again in several ways. And as often as not, the person will say, “I don’t believe it,” or “I don’t trust it,” or “I’m too afraid to follow that,” or “I don’t want to do that.”

Look into your heart and mind and see if you can discover the place where you have been hearing the message clearly, but you have been ignoring the guidance. You can cultivate the willingness to hear with new ears.

If you won’t take the steps that will lead to your happiness, no matter how many times you hear the message, then it’s best to STOP COMPLAINING that you’re not happy, because that only intensifies the suffering.   Accept that you’re not willing or ready, but that you will be and in the meantime avoid looking to blame others for your unhappiness.  This practice alone will noticeably increase your peace.

The amazing life of Love and Joy that is everyone’s destiny is only going to be experienced by those who are willing to listen and follow.  When we live in the muck and mire of our own opinions we’re eliminating our possibility for happiness.  There’s no other way to Peace.  Peace is the way.

When feeling stuck, resistant, reluctant, or upset, I learned to ask myself, “Can you at least be more willing to be a little more willing?”  The answer was almost always, “Yes”.  That little bit of willingness profoundly changed my life!  Are you willing to be a little bit more willing to recognize the loving choices and hear the voice for God?

Second Coming

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

One of the things I truly appreciate about A Course in Miracles is that it tells us that we’re already perfect.  I like to say, “We’re already as holy as holy can be.”  We need do nothing.  We can choose to do lots of things, but we NEED do nothing because we’re actually already eternal, unprecedented, and perfect.

ACIM tells us that Christ is the Son of God, and that’s what humanity is.  We’re all One in Christ and the only problem we have is that we are deluded into believing we’re fundamentally wrong and bad, and separate from our holiness and from each other.  Because of this false belief of being bad and separate from our perfection, we have a myriad of thoughts that are completely false and manifest as the illusion of problems in this world.

The second coming of Christ can only happen in our minds because we’ve never left our Christed nature except in our delusions.  The time for returning our awareness to an awakened state is here.  It’s unfolding now.

Have you noticed that just in the past few days you’ve felt a strong urge to let go of playing small – for good?  I’m seeing that energetic of choosing Wholeness break out all over!  For those who are willing this is an EXTRAORDINARY time of healing.

And, conversely, I’m noticing that those who are clinging to their old habits and old ways are having increasing suffering.  We’re just not designed to be happy and be stagnant.  We’re designed to be in the flow of Love and when we take ourselves out of it, it’s painful.

Fortunately, we can jump right back into the flow of Love no matter how long we’ve been out of it.

The Second Coming IS happening and, TAG, you’re it!

What’s It For?

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

Making spiritual inquiries about what’s unfolding in our lives is a big part of what I teach in my classes like Masterful Living and Finding Freedom.  It’s a substantial portion of what we do on my retreats and intensive trainings, so that we learn to avoid ego tricks and traps.

Spiritual inquiries help us to learn and discern what’s really going on so that we move out of ego analysis or false perception.  As I was  sharing about in my Radio Show yesterday, we can facilitate so much more healing, more quickly, when we are aware of what’s actually going on.

In class the other day, we were talking about how many times things are not what they seem.  For instance, a challenge appears in our life and we think it’s just something we have to deal with.  What if the challenge is actually for the purpose of distracting us from our goal of awakening?  What if the challenge is to help us stay focused on our goal of awakening?  How do we know how to tell the difference?

Pain can be a distraction or it can be a motivation.  It’s important to know what we’re dealing with.

Things are much faster and easier when we are aligned with the Divine and listening to Spirit guide us all the way.  One major way we can help ourselves to consistently inquire what things are for.  This is one of the great benefits of spiritual counseling – being able to be the two or more gathered in the name of Love for the purpose of healing.

Here are some great and simple questions that are really helpful:

What’s the pain for?
What’s the relationship challenge for?
What’s the seeming loss for?
What’s that feeling of anger for?

Because Spirit is all that there is, everything is for us and nothing is against us, but we may not be able to see it or believe it without some real willingness.  This is why we pray and Partner UP each day, so that we stay focused on Spirit and avoid the extended detours.

The ego is tricky, but the Spirit cannot be beat!

Believing What’s True

Thursday, July 27th, 2017

I find that something most spiritual seekers have a difficult time with is keeping the commitment to their own holiness – to really LIVING what they believe. For myself, I discovered that if I think I know something, but I don’t live it by applying it in my life, then I must not really believe it. In other words, I don’t have faith in it. If I don’t have faith in the truth, I don’t actually believe it.

If I believe that all thoughts produce form at some level and that all of my thoughts are creating my experience, and day after day, I’m struggling in misery, managing and coping with circumstances I don’t like – then clearly, I don’t believe that my thoughts create or I would change my thinking in order to have a new experience. Realizing this was so helpful to me in deciding to change my mind.

We can develop the mental, emotional, and spiritual commitment to live in alignment with our Spirit – Spirit WILL show us the way when we’re willing. Our little willingness really and truly is ALL that’s required! And we demonstrate our willingness by having faith in Spirit. Try it and see!

When we’re willing to keep our commitments to Spirit, our day improves, our health and finances improve, and our relationships DRAMATICALLY improve! When we forgo the right to complain and attack ourselves with our thoughts, our whole life improves. DECIDE to hold your commitment to Love and become accountable for your choices rather than a victim to circumstances. When you decide, the rest of life will align with you. Therein lies the power to transform your life! Go for it! I AM with you!

Be Not Anxious

Wednesday, July 26th, 2017

One of my very favorite mystical teachers and authors is Christian D. Larson (1874 – 1962). Larson is the author of many books, and his The Pathway of Roses is a classic, as well as, a favorite of mine. It is so inspiring and uplifting to me. Larson’s beautiful spirit shines through every thought he brings forth.

A favorite passage from this beautiful book never fails to inspire me and refresh me:

“‘Be not anxious for your life.’ Live your life according to the very highest light that is within you; use fully and well all the powers that you have received; give your best to the world at all times and under every circumstance, and depend upon the Infinite for everything that existence may need or desire. You will receive it. You need not be anxious about anything. God is greater than anything that can possibly happen. Have faith in Him and He will see you safely through. Things go wrong only when you fail to be your best and fail to take God with you in everything you do. It is therefore in your power to place yourself in that position where everything will go right. The lilies of the field are all that beautiful lilies can possibly be, and they depend wholly upon the powers divine that are within them. Accordingly they are an inspiration to all the world.” Christian D. Larson, The Pathway of Roses

The first time I read this, I had such a tremendous feeling of invisible support. I invite you to read this passage out loud and let it reverberate through your body and your home!  May you feel the inspiration and expansion vibrating through you!

God is Here, Always

Monday, July 24th, 2017

If I affirm there’s a problem that needs fixing then I’m firmly anchored in the thought that the Divine has disappeared; God has left the building. The only thing required for a healing is for me to see the situation rightly. As long as I see a problem, it will be there for me to see.

Certainty

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017

We’ve all learned that our only issue is that we have a belief that we’re separate from God, but it’s not true. We act as though we’re separate from each other and we suffer, because it’s not true and it never will be true. We’re one. We’re united.

Our belief in separation is the demon seed thought that translates into doubt, mistrust and lack of certainty. Fortunately, there’s a way out of this muck and mire of false beliefs. There’s a way back home and it’s actually much easier than we think, provided we are willing to actually head home.

The challenges come when we aren’t really certain we’d like to align with our own divine will. When we’re still interested in playing around with our crazy thinking, and experimenting with more and more projections of separation, then it does delay our happiness and our homeward journey. And this is why Jesus gave us the parable of the prodigal son. To show us the path we’re on.

Today in my radio show I’m going to share about how we can speed up our journey home and eliminate years of suffering. You can join me live, or you can get the download later!

Faith, Belief & Vision

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017

Yesterday in my year-long Masterful Living Course, we were having a very powerful dialogue about healing the feeling of aversions in our relationships.  I feel so blessed and grateful for the deep sharing we have together and the ever-increasing willingness for us to have healing.  We’re all learning to ALLOW the healing at the deepest levels.

It takes tremendous willingness to recognize the healing opportunity that is before us when we feel frustrated, irritated, distrustful, worried, confused, angry, jealous, guilty, ashamed, or upset in any way.  That’s right, any form the upset takes is an indicator that a miraculous healing opportunity is being presented to us if we have the courage to rely upon Spirit to guide us through.

I’ve experienced paralyzing fear be turned into miraculously deepening faith and trust because of my willingness.  In this way, anyone’s willingness brings everyone benefit  – all boats rise on this tide of Love.  In this way, we can be heroic.

Right now, the action hero of the summer is Wonder Woman.  In the movie based on the Marvel comic character, Wonder Woman is faced with a challenging choice.  She has to decide either to leave her home, likely never to return, and go with a man she’s only just met, to fight and kill the God of War, and to protect the innocent women and children who are being threatened, or to stay where she is, and where she might be safe.

For Wonder Woman, there is no real choice.  Even though her loved ones fear that she doesn’t have the strength to fight the God of War, Wonder Woman must try.  She must at least do her best to protect the innocent from needlessly dying, and for the God of War to dominate humanity.  She cannot give in to fear.

Wonder Woman’s appearance in the worldwide cinema at this time is no accident.  We are awakening to the courage, strength and passion of the Divine Feminine, the Divine Mother, to bring forth the Divine Vision of the new heaven and the new earth.  This is the time we’ve waited for and it’s the personal healing activation that we are hear to anchor and bring forth for all beings.

Our willingness to be a loving presence is an active practice of faith and trust.  Our willingness naturally displays a belief in Spirit that our healing is possible – and that shift in consciousness allows the miraculous vision to come forth.  If we had no belief, no trust at all, we wouldn’t be able to have much healing.  Miracles would only be for special people.  Miracles are, in a sense, “contagious.” Our trust, faith and belief are healing activators that can restore the miraculous mindset to anyone’s life.

And that’s what we are, healing activators.  If we’re willing, Spirit will do the heavy lifting, show us the way, remove the obstacles, lift and carry us.  In this way, we are the living demonstration of Faith, Belief & Vision all while we’re learning how to have these precious qualities of God.

Trust and willingness are really one in the same.  In A Course in Miracles we’re told that trust is the #1 characteristic of the Teachers of God, upon which everything else rests.  We’re also told that our willingness is all that is required.  You cannot have willingness without trust and you can’t have trust without willingness. Together they call the healing into miraculous expression.  Trust and willingness go together, and they dissolve the appearance of obstacles.

Our willingness to hold a higher vision of Unity and Love is like a lightning rod for God’s goodness to flow into our life.  At times, it may seem as though we’re being tested in our ability to have faith and believe in the vision of Love for our lives.  While it seems like testing, it’s really strengthening exercises, perfectly designed to support us.

When we’re willing to have a high aspiration, to cultivate willingness and practice patience, kindness, generosity and compassion, we are a healing presence in this world.

Because our mind is the Mind of God, when we change our mind about the world, the world changes and becomes a more peaceful place.  Let’s learn to rejoice that we can change our mind.  When there seems to be a difficulty or an impasse in our relationships, let’s gratefully go first and move into forgiveness, nonjudgment, and a great willingness, with trust in Spirit.  Let’s live as healing activators for the whole human race and the earth! Let’s start today!

Let Spirit Decide

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

A Course in Miracles advises us to say to Spirit, “You decide for me.”  People often ask me, “What does that really mean?  And how does that work?”  These are important and helpful questions and I’m going to be sharing about them on my radio show today.

ACIM also tells us the way to know that we’ve made a wrong decision.  The way to tell we’ve gone off the track is   simply that we’re no longer feeling peaceful.  What’s also helpful to understand is that many people are so inured to feeling uncomfortable, unhappy, and anxious that they really truly don’t feel comfortable feeling comfortable.

I know that might sound a bit crazy, but consider this:  if you grew up in a family where the mood in your household was frequently sad, angry, depressed, worried or guilty, then you might have come to equate that mood, that feeling, with normal.  And that means that you may also have come to feel that emotional state is what feels most like home and comfort to you.

The way out of a negative pattern of living in emotional upset of any kind is to give it to Spirit for healing, and many people find that just too difficult.  They can put it on the altar, but they don’t have the patience to leave it there.  I am interested in supporting people to not give up before the miracle – and to not miss the miraculous opportunity by thinking they know what could happen or should happen.  This level of spiritual commitment is SO worth cultivating.  As far as I’m concerned, it’s worth EVERYTHING.

I wouldn’t trade the Peace I feel now for anything in this world.  I wouldn’t let it go, for anything in this world, but I’ll continue to do the best I can to give it away – and to share it!  This is my humble offering to you!

Surrender & Faith

Friday, May 19th, 2017

I am fully committed to being loving, which I can only do by relinquishing the ego’s petty concerns in exchange for the highest and most loving choice that I can find in the moment.

Any walk to know myself AS God and to live God more fully is a walk of surrender. What does surrender mean? It means giving up my opinion in order to make way for God’s healing, loving Truth. Any time I think I know how it SHOULD go or how things SHOULD be, any should at all, is a call for me to  surrender – quickly.

“When Jesus said you have to lose your life to find it, He was saying: You have to lose your hate if you wish to find love … you even have to surrender fear if you wish to discover faith.” Earnest Holmes, Living The Science of Mind

I used to find myself pushing and pushing before I’d remember to turn it over to God. Sometimes, I can feel attached to being right. In the need to be right, it’s easy to lose sight of the intention to be loving and compassionate. Time to surrender, Dorothy!  We don’t surrender to the ego (wicked witch), we surrender to the miracle of Love!

Many times in the past, I’ve been challenged with trying to be a place of Love when I was really in a place of deep and intense judgment. The judgment was the cause of my feelings of fear, but I didn’t know it. In those moments of fear and judgment, I discovered the practice of surrendering to God.

I know that God is Love and God loves all as itself. At times, when I do not feel loving, I surrender to God and let God love through me and as me. I’ve learned the power of relinquishing any attachment to my opinion and hold firm to my aspiration to be loving. God moves through me. It doesn’t mean that I have to like the person or their actions, but God can still love through me. My vibration shifts as the judgment dissolves and Love becomes the focus. I become a place for healing. The Christ Consciousness is awake in me. This is the power of surrender.

Every moment of every day is a powerful opportunity for me to live with a deep intention to surrender even more fully to living this life in God and as God, and to seeing God in everyone and every thing. In this way, I am blessed and I AM a blessing wherever I go, whatever I do.  And for this, I AM grateful!

I am also supremely grateful for this week’s classes at Living A Course in Miracles.  People are letting me know that this series has been a great blessing to them.  We’re on fire with a desire to live a life of JOY!  Check it out and please share with friends!

Love Is My Protection

Saturday, April 22nd, 2017

I have talked with many people who are worried for their safety in one way or another.  Some are concerned about the possibility of financial loss, some fear their spouse is losing interest, others are worried about their loss of a job or their health.  I get it.  This is a world where things are always changing.

One thing I’ve come to have great faith and reliance on is the Power of Love, and that’s why it’s the name of this non-profit ministry.  I’ve seen that Love is my protector.

The more loving I am and the more I am focused on being loving and sharing Love, the more protected I feel.

As I say frequently, the safest place is in my open, loving heart.  When I’m open and loving then I’m not likely to get hurt.  When my heart was closed, I got hurt all the time.  It’s hard to believe that’s how this life works, but it does.

We think that if we close our heart and don’t get too close to people that we’re less likely to get hurt, but the way to avoid suffering isn’t through isolation, it’s through compassion and Love.

When you truly love someone who would like to leave you, then you won’t hold them back. That would be far more painful than letting them go.  When you believe in lack and limitation, you’d rather make them suffer to stay with you, then let them go.

When we realize that the great protector is our own loving heart, then life really changes because we’re not trying to “get” safety and security from someplace where it will never come.

We’re all secure in God’s Love, but we have to be willing to share it to feel it and know it.  That requires courage – and courage, of course, is the ability to feel fear, but choose the loving choice anyway.

Let’s live a pain-free life through being open-hearted!

Rising to The Highest & Best Within Us

Friday, April 21st, 2017

People sometimes feel that God is testing them. While I understand that feeling, and it’s one that I’ve had.   I’ve come to shift my view from feeling TORTURED by the testing to feeling supported by it. I no longer believe God tests us to find out what we’ll do, but to help us rise to the highest and best within us.

God isn’t an old man in the sky who’s fiendish in one moment and generous in another. I love what Ernest Holmes writes in the Science of Mind about the nature of God being responsive and Loving, but not intercessory. I believe that God is impersonal, omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient – the same yesterday, today, tomorrow, and forever without opinions, preferences or personality. God is not human. God is Intelligence. God is Love. For this reason, I often use the words Love, or Life, or Universe, or Spirit, or Divine, or Beloved, rather than God.

The Divine Mind of Love Intelligence does not test us. However, I do believe that our Higher Holy Spirit Self – the mighty I AM Presence, our own “personal” Higher Self, does create situations and circumstances that help us to strengthen and purify; And those experiences can feel like a test when I hold onto that which no longer serves me.

When I’m willing to let go, it feels like an opportunity not a test.

I now welcome the opportunity to clear out old patterns and perceptions through being strengthened.  In fact, I’m GRATEFUL for them!  When I take this view of the challenge that seems like a test, I am truly grateful that my Spirit supports me by creating an opportunity for me to rise to my Divinity.

Divine Love is unconditional. What is there to test? When I live a life of surrender, non-attachment and non-judgment, then Life provides me wonderful opportunities, situations and circumstances that give me the opportunity to course correct, to build strong heart muscle, deep compassion and to purify my view of Life and Love. I have a great desire for that! I AM grateful for the support that appears as a challenge!

Sometimes, I can feel resistant, reluctant and just plain lazy. However, that’s not a place I choose to make my nest in. Thank GOD my Higher Holy Spirit Self pushes me out of the nest when I forget it.

I was born to fly! I prefer to fly! When I forget, I welcome that push! Grateful am I. Phew and woo hoo!

Happy Easter!

Sunday, April 16th, 2017

I am choosing the resurrection in my mind!  And I’m choosing it for all of us.

I have friends who talk about their “bucket lists,” and I think it’s great that people are actively affirming what they’d like to experience – that’s so powerful.  That’s the way to bring into your life what you’d really like  – keeping your attention on focus on what you’d like to experience while eliminating any thought you cannot have it and enjoy it.

On my bucket list, there’s one thing and it’s resurrection – ascension – all Love all the time.  My goal is to forgive everything, release all attachments, and awaken from the dream of separation while supporting others who would like to do the same.

This is also the mission and purpose of the Power of Love Ministry.

In this resurrection, our willingness is all that’s required.

Today, on Easter, let’s be 100% willing to let go of the past and Love fully now.  I claim it for all of us.  Love is the only power, ego has no power, and so we are free now.

We are free to choose our experience.  I choose Love and resurrection!  Let’s BE it together!  Happy Easter!  I see the Christ rising in all of us!

Opening the Flow of Prosperity

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

It took me a long time to see that having faith, placing my trust in Love (God) would open up my Prosperity. The big shift came when I realized that since God is all that there is, EVERYTHING I receive, I receive from God. I had the shift in my awareness and then came the shift in my life.

Recognizing that EVERYTHING I had, or would have, came from the unlimited source (God), helped me to also understand that EVERYTHING I gave, I gave TO God.

There’s only one place to receive FROM and once place to give TO.

I realized that, since there’s just this one – I could stop keeping score. I could give wherever I felt called to give and not have a thought that anyone owed me anything – including a thank you.

I also realized that I could receive without thinking that I owed anyone. No strings attached anymore. God has no strings because God is not a manipulator.

God is unlimited and unprecedented source and supply – I could, if I chose, learn to receive without limits. How cool is that?

You see, it’s all in the mind.
The flow starts in the mind and then shows up in your life.

Would you like to open up the flow? Here’s a simple tip for you:

If you have strings attached to anything, then you’re not in the flow.
Thinking someone owes you a thank you, or recognition or even any small amount of appreciation is giving to get. Let it go and open up the flow.

Are there any people in your life that you think OWE you?
If you KNEW that your experiences of lack and limitation were tied to that thought, would you be willing to give it up?

Forgive the debtors and the trespassers to open up the flow of prosperity in your life. Forgiving yourself is the best place to begin.  Self-forgiveness is one of the main components of my Finding Freedom Spiritual Bootcamp class.  It’s amazing how true forgiveness sets us free and that opens the door to prosperity!

Listen & Follow!

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017

Yesterday, I traveled from New Jersey to Los Angeles and it got a bit interesting.  I had to leave the house at 4:30 a.m. to make a 6 a.m. flight.  As the cab to take me to the airport was arriving, I realized that I couldn’t find my wallet.  I thought that perhaps I’d lost it or dropped it at the restaurant the night before, or in the cab home.  Yikes!  I couldn’t find it anywhere.

I wondered what to do, with no cash, no credit cards, and no driver’s license.  I checked-in on my intuition.  And knew to follow it was the best thing.  Still, that meant leaving with just my passport and a plan to go to the bank when I got to Los Angeles – hoping I wouldn’t need any money along the way.  It’s called faith.

The 15 minutes that it took to look for my wallet, and then get my passport, meant that I was running late.  Then the driver drove really slowly in the raining, dark, pre-dawn trip to the airport.  By the time I got to the airport, it was about 5:15 – only 45 minutes until departure time.  They wouldn’t check my bags, but decided to book me through on the next flight.  I was fine with that.

I waited to have the new arrangements ticketed. While I was weighing my bag, I discovered it was a couple of pounds over. So I opened it up to take out a couple of books and lighten the load.  There was my wallet, right on top.  Thank God for that because if I hadn’t had a few pounds over, I would have had to get a cab from the airport – you can’t rent a car without your driver’s license, and then I would have taken a cab to the bank to cancel my cards and get new ones and it would have been a different day.

I don’t know why Spirit arranged for my incident.  I have no idea why it was for the highest and best.  Maybe it was just to be able to share with you.  Maybe it’s meaningful to you and that’s the reason for it.

What I do is that I’m so glad I listened to my guidance to head to the airport regardless.  I’m glad for everything just as it was.   I got to practice Peace and share my Peace with those along my journey.  I feel that’s a great blessing for me and it was a gift to share.

I have a commitment to demonstrating being in the flow.  The flow is always happening and I can choose to be in it or not.  I know what it feels like to feel outside the flow and separate.  I know what it feels like to block the flow, and I know what it feels like to be one in the flow.  I choose to listen and follow in the flow.

Is there any message you’ve been getting that you’ve been ignoring that you could follow and get more into the flow of Love in your life?

God Makes A Way

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

When it feels like there’s no way, Spirit can still make a way.
When it feels like only failure is possible, Spirit can still succeed.
When it feels like all is lost, Spirit can show us what’s valuable.
In God, all things worth doing, having and being are always possible.

When we’re feeling hopeless and helpless, then we’ve left God out of the equation, and that’s the real reason that we feel so down and desperate.   We can say we think that we feel despair because of what’s happening in the world, but our upset is really because we’re not allowing Spirit to lead us, guide us, and direct us.  And we can change our mind.  We can go the other way.

When we’re willing to put Spirit in-charge, then everything changes.  It can seem that we don’t want change.  It can feel as if change is a threat and a worry.  We can fear change because we can’t control it, but the fact is that we can’t control anything, so let’s not fool ourselves anymore.

All we have to do is to look to the world – at some of the most “powerful” people in the world, and see how they try so hard to control things and no matter how much “power and influence” they have, they still can’t control things to go their way.

In truth, there’s only one way, and that way is God’s way.  Let’s all get off the pain train and jump on board the Love Train.  Let’s not wait until the pain is squeezing us so hard we just wish we were dead.  Let’s simply put Spirit in-charge and allow the miracles to unfold.  Let’s get out of the way.  And let’s get on with it and do what we’re here to do – Love ourselves and each other.

“Wherever [the Holy Spirit] looks, He sees Himself, and because He is united, He offers the whole Kingdom always.  This is the one message God gave to Him and for which He must speak, because that is what He is.  The peace of God lies in that message, and so the peace of God lies in you.  The great peace of the Kingdom shines in your mind forever, but it must shine outward to make you aware of it.”  A Course in Miracles, T-6.II.12.

Peace of God

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

On my radio show today, I’m going to share about the Peace of God.  Peace is what so many people would like to find.  Peace is what many are pursuing.  It’s a life without fear, a life without worry.  It’s about having, rather than wanting.

Everywhere I go, I see people who are in search of Peace and trying to make Peace happen.  There is no way TO get to Peace, Peace is the way.

Peace is the way, in the same sense that Jesus meant it when He said the, “I AM is the way, the truth and the Life.”

I AM is the way, the Peace, the truth and the Life.  I AM is our mighty God Presence, which is our very essence, the Light at the core of our being.

Peace is pre-installed.  If we don’t have Peace that’s a false perception.  We have the Peace, it is our very nature, it is OUR way, truth and Life.  However, even though Peace is our nature, and that Peace is real, if we treasure a false idol instead of the Peace, it will seem as though we don’t have Peace only because we are valuing something we made rather than our true nature.

If I love my job more than I love myself, then my job is a false idol.
If I love my partner more than I love God, then my partner is a false idol.

Let us be truly helpful and lay aside false idols and false gods so that we can enjoy and teach the Peace of God instead.

“The miracle is the act of a Son of God who has laid aside all false gods, and calls on his brothers to do likewise.  It is an act of faith, because it is the recognition that his brother can do it.  It is a call to the Holy Spirit in his mind, a call that is strengthened by joining.”  A Course in Miracles T-10.IV.7.

To have the Peace of God, we must seek the Kingdom first.  Peace is part of the ALL that’s added unto us when we’re seeking and finding the Kingdom of God.  Let us look for Peace where we can find it!

I’m excited to share more about this today on my radio show – you can listen live or get the download later – see below.

Choosing Resurrection

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

I’m going to be speaking at the A Course in Miracles Easter Conference this year, hosted by James Twyman.  Today, Jimmy is a guest on my radio show!  At the Easter Conference,  we will celebrate humanity’s collective awareness opening to remember our Christ nature. Let us learn from the great example that Jesus gave us when he attained his Christhood and remembered his true identity.

I love this quote from A Course in Miracles:

“The journey to the cross should be the last ‘useless journey.’ Do not dwell upon it, but dismiss it as accomplished. If you can accept it as your own last useless journey, you are also free to join my resurrection. Until you do so your life is indeed wasted. It merely reenacts the separation, the loss of power, the futile attempts of the ego at reparation, and finally the crucifixion of the body, or death. Such repetitions are endless until they are voluntarily given up. Do not make the pathetic error of ‘clinging to the old rugged cross.’ The only message of the crucifixion is that you can overcome the cross. Until then you are free to crucify yourself as often as you choose.” Text, Chapter 4, Introduction, Paragraph 3

Today, my focus is on awakening, and resurrecting to my true identity in Christ.

Father – Mother God gave birth to the one Son of God and that is the Christ.
Christ is Love.

“If you are to be conflict-free yourself, you must learn only from the Holy Spirit and teach only by Him. You are only love, but when you deny this, you make what you are something you must learn to remember. I said before that the message of the crucifixion was, teach only love for that is what you are.” Text, Chapter 6, Section III, Paragraph 2

Today, I choose to rise in Christ.
I AM waking up to my true identity in Christ!

“Rest comes from waking, not from sleeping.”
A Course in Miracles, Text, Chapter 8, Section IX, Paragrph 3

Will you join me in remembering our true identity?  Today’s the day, no delay!

I’m offering a FREE CLASS TOMORROW and you can register right now!

Faith

Monday, February 27th, 2017

I’ve done a lot of traveling.  Last year, I pretty much went around the world twice.  When I travel on an airplane, I have confidence it will go fine even though I have no idea how it works. I am clueless about the workings of a plane. Fortunately, my not knowing doesn’t keep the plane from flying. I’m the passenger not the pilot. I don’t set the course, but I decide to go along for the ride.  I’ve chosen my destination.

Aviation employs principles I’ve never learned, but those who’ve studied it understand it completely and I put my faith and trust in them. Similarly, Spiritual Laws and principles work whether I grasp them or not. Spiritual Law operates in all areas of my life, 24/7. I can use these laws effectively if I comprehend them. I can set the destination, but not the course.  My Higher Holy Spirit Self sets the course.

Through my spiritual practice, I’ve come to know spiritual law and principle. I’ve come to see and know how my faith demonstrates in my life. Jesus, Buddha and Mother Theresa all studied spiritual principle and achieved mastery through living their practice.

The more I practice and apply spiritual law, the more it reveals itself to me and I can be the co-pilot with God. My ability to use spiritual principle in ways that are gratifying expands as I apply what I learn. There are no secrets here. My faith is the point in my being through which I am in league with the infinite. I need to actively engage my faith in order to see it demonstrate clearly and with mastery.

Ernest Holmes told us, “There will never be an end to God, nor to any of the attributes which are co-eternal and co-existent with God. If we are wise we shall cultivate a faith in these realities. This is not a difficult task, but a thrilling experience.”

Jesus told us that we could do even more than he did. He also told everyone he healed that it was their faith, and not his, that made them whole. This is the infinite possibility that’s available to all of us. In faith ALL things are possible.

Today, I engage my faith and use it to pilot my life experience. I study peace and love; I study the desire of my heart. I practice trusting more in what I can’t see than in what I can see. I look beyond the image of the angry rude person in my experiences and see that they are feeling frightened.  Anyone who is frightened has placed their faith in their own false beliefs. That person deserves my compassion, even if they’re attacking me.

When I look without judging, I can see their upset as a prayer request. When I look deeply, their prayer request answers my own desire to be more patient and more loving. This is my practice of stepping out on faith. The more I practice, the more solid it becomes. Now I can see and feel that we really are all One and I am in league with the infinite pilot of all life.

Faith is a light in the darkness.  No matter how dark it is, even the smallest light can banish the darkness and shift the energy.  We are the Light.  YOU are the Light.

I AM determined to see.  I AM willing to live by faith.

Looking for Heaven

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

The Kingdom of Heaven is within. If you’re looking to find it somewhere outside of your own heart, then you will never, ever even catch a glimpse. Many people are still seeking outside of themselves, thinking that what they deeply want, need and desire is somewhere in the world. If they look long and hard enough, they might find it. If they work hard enough, they will be able to manifest it or attract it. If they are lucky, someone will give it to them. All of that seeking is illusion.

Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Holy Bible, Matthew 6:33

The Kingdom is within, to look elsewhere is to go on a fool’s errand. Deep down, we all know this. That’s why so many despair. They are afraid to look within and yet deep down they know that is the only way to find what they’re looking for.

Why would someone be afraid to look for the Kingdom in the one and only place it can be found? Well, if you’re thinking of yourself as not good enough, if you’re thinking that inside of you is something ugly and unworthy.

If you feel you are filled to the brim with guilt, blame and shame – then you probably won’t feel excited about looking within. Instead you will fear what you might find. Better not to look within and simply continue to seek in vain. The suffering of not finding is less than the suffering of discovering just how ugly your own heart is. This is the thought that keeps so many from discovering the amazing riches of the Kingdom.

The Kingdom is pre-installed and fully equipped. You must have courage to look within. And you must have true humility. It takes true humility to be willing to venture, going forth in faith, to discover that the Kingdom is within your own heart. If you do not love yourself, or if you have the false-love of the ego, then you will not be willing to look within. Humility is required.

It’s highly valuable to be willing to realize that you are no better than and no less than anyone else. Just as there is not one facet of the diamond that is more worthy than another, all are worthy. All are lovable.

If you judge yourself as better than or less than you won’t feel worthy of your true identity and you’ll continue to seek outside yourself in vain. On the road to the Kingdom you will have an infinite number of opportunities to develop true humility. You can do this through the sweet practice of prayer and contemplation or you can go through the pain and suffering of humiliation. It’s up to you.

Will you cling to your opinion or will you simply be willing to accept that all are worthy.  You are worthy of your Divinity. Seek the Kingdom, which is within, and all else will be added unto you.
