Being Peaceful

Saturday, June 23rd, 2018

We live in an ever-changing world. The impermanent nature of everything on planet earth is part of why we chose this experience. It’s a bit like my shape-up workout shoes. They have a rounded bottom to them and they make it less stable for me to walk, which makes me use my core more and that strengthens me.

We can decide to use the life’s weather and weirdness to help us to become stronger. We can be like the trees, who receive great benefit from having the wind and elements challenging them to grow stronger and more resilient to even the harshest weather.

Year’s ago I set the intention to *become peaceful. I felt ready. It was such a great decision!

Through my commitment to being peaceful I was able to recognize the opportunities to choose Peace. Having a clear and strong intention is so helpful!

As I talked about in my Freedom From Fear class the other day, I used to torture myself, and everyone around me by getting upset and venting. It was a giant waste of energy and it really created so much negative backwash in my life. I didn’t realize it at that the time.

I used to think that getting upset was my power. I’m so glad I’ve learned that Love is the ONLY power that there is. Peace is where it’s at, baby!

Now, I get such strength from practicing being peaceful regardless of what’s going on. It’s like getting a core workout. Once you develop a strong core, it’s MUCH easier to maintain it. In fact, with being peaceful, it gets easier all the time.

This practice of Peace is not about denying how you feel, it’s about placing a much higher value on Peace, Love and Harmony than on any emotional expression. I Love myself so much that I don’t wish to energize negativity because it’s unkind to myself.

When you’re willing, you can begin to practice the discipline of being harmonious. It requires the willingness to be compassionate.

You’ll realize that your emotions are the by-product of your INTERPRETATION of what’s going on. You’re only upset for the meaning you made of it.

Your interpretation is really your opinion.
Like the weather, opinions are always changing.
Why value what is ever-changing when you can value what is never-changing?
LOVE is constant.
Love is clear.

Love is never grasping and the active practice of Love is compassion, which leads to Harmony, which leads to self-esteem and abundance.

At some point, Peace becomes so valuable that no opinion is worth giving it up for. You can decide if today’s that day or not. You can choose to be unbotherable. Wouldn’t you really rather be unbotherable? Wouldn’t you rather live with an open heart? We’re doing it together!

Forgiveness is a big part of being able to be peaceful. Forgiving the debtors and the trespassers opens up the flow of Love and prosperity in your life. It’s not just a matter of willingness, it helps to know HOW to forgive.

Next week, I’m starting my summer Finding Freedom Spiritual Bootcamp. People are experiencing a lot of fear right now. And so I’ve dropped the price and added a really nice bonus in order to encourage more people to take the plunge and be ALL IN for Spirit and to STOP giving their power to false beliefs.

When we join together it works. It really does work. Let’s go for it!

Fear Has No Power

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

Wow! What a healing! Last night on the summer solstice, I did my Freedom From Fear class – powerful! It’s amazing how so many of us can read all kinds of books and do all kinds of things and still be gripped by fear in a moment’s notice. It’s amazing how many Light Workers still feel unworthy of Love.

What I absolutely know, and am so grateful for, is that these patterns are a distortion. They are not true. And do not need to give it our power anymore!

Fear has no basis in reality.
It is a made up thing.

When we don’t keep our agreements, and commitments then we feel untrustworthy and we project that onto all of life. Of course, since like attracts like, we attract people who mirror us and then we feel a despair that the world is hopeless. It becomes a black hold sucking everything in.

The truth that sets us free is:
Fear has no power of its own. It is our belief in the false thought that SEEMS to give the fear power. I will not be driven by fear anymore. I’m so grateful that we’re on this journey of healing together. I feel called to step up my game and I’m going for it. Let’s do it together!

Next week, I’m starting my summer Finding Freedom Spiritual Bootcamp. People are experiencing a lot of fear right now. And so I’ve dropped the price and added a bonus in order to encourage more people to take the plunge and be ALL IN for Spirit and to STOP giving their power to false beliefs.

When we join together it works. It really does work. Let’s go for it!

Freedom From Fear

Thursday, June 21st, 2018

One great thing about being on this path and actually doing the work of healing the mind, is that as you progress you can see the choice points. This means you create a lot less trouble for yourself. Which is SUCH a good feeling.

I can remember when I began to really get that my upset was caused by me and that I had the power to make another choice. I began to actively celebrate my decision to turn away from the thinking that was so painful and caused so much distress.

Deep down, I knew that I had the power to choose a higher thought.
Still, I continued to choose to affirm that life was happening to me and it wasn’t my fault.

I can remember feeling that thinking it was happening TO me rather than BY me was some how preferable. For a long, LONG time, I put so much energy into blaming others.

People often tell me that they’re amazed at how much I accomplish. Well, it’s because I don’t invest my energy in a lot of things that take up huge amounts of time.

So many have told me they’re plagued by a fear of not having enough time to live the life they’d like, but that’s a made up story. Instead, they’re investing their time and energy in things that are wasteful and draining of energy.

I used to binge watch tv SO OFTEN.
I did it to escape.
Now, I occasionally make a date with myself to enjoy a favorite program for a few hours, but I don’t feel like I’m wasting time. It feels fun and restful.

I don’t feel guilty afterwards.
It’s like having a big ice cream sundae.
If you do it in moderation, it’s a wonderful and enjoyable thing!

If you’re doing something you enjoy in a way that dulls your senses, in order to escape from the pain of this world, it’s delaying the healing due to overwhelm.

I’m so familiar with feeling afraid that I don’t have what it takes, and instead choosing to escape, and delay my healing due to overwhelm. Enough! That’s not helpful.

And that’s precisely why I’m offering this free class today!
I’ll share what’s helpful so we can break these patterns and live a life that’s fulfilling!

Manipulation

Wednesday, June 20th, 2018

I’m in a co-creative relationship with Spirit and that’s a beautiful and powerful thing. It’s essential to my happiness and fulfillment that I am fully IN this relationship with the Divine. There was a time when I was not committed to the relationship, not by a long shot. I was playing a game of “hard to get” with God. I was keeping score in the most demented way.

So many of us are actually trying to manipulate God the way we tried to manipulate our parents! Sheesh!

There’s an old paradigm of thought about making deals with Spirit. In that game, God is the sometimes loving, sometimes punishing parent. The relationship is co-dependent. “I’ll do this, if God does that.” And “I’m a lowly sinner, but as long as I grovel and repent, Daddy loves me.” There is no partnership, no co-creativity. It is the original dysfunctional family!

It’s my intention to help dissolve that old paradigm through awakening to my Divinity. My Divine essence isn’t something to be experienced someday in the future – when I give up my ways as a sinner and get to Heaven, it’s here NOW – and forever. I AM the One who decides to see it, know it, live in it and share the benefit with all beings because I AM One with them. Right now, I have a response-ability to expand MY awareness to live in this fundamental Truth: I AM One with God, eternal and infinite.

“Your holiness is the salvation of the world. It lets you teach the world that it is one with you … by your quiet recognition that in your holiness are all things blessed along with you.” ~ A Course In Miracles

I AM responsible for my thoughts in the same way that I AM responsible for keeping my home clean and clear of clutter. I can see that I actually choose each and every one of my thoughts – over and over again.

My thoughts manifest as the circumstances of my life – not to punish me, not to reward me, but to teach me because that’s how I learn and grow to know that I AM One with the Beloved now and forever.

I AM is the Resurrection and the Life of the gifts of my Divinity. I am eternally One with the One!

False Beliefs

Sunday, June 17th, 2018

A Course in Miracles tells us that we cannot judge and still hope to learn. Our judgments actually block our learning. If we’re not learning anything then we’re doomed to keep suffering through the same experiences.

If that’s not a motivation to give up judgement, I don’t know what is! Wowzer!

It makes sense when you think about it. If we prefer to think we know what everything is for, are we open to any insights or learning? No, we’re not, because we think we already know whatever is worth knowing. How can we be open to insight when we’ve already made up our mind what everything is for?

Maybe you’re like me and you’e had the experience of repeating the same errors, the same unkindness, the same self-attack, again and again, like a hamster on a wheel? My repeating painful experiences seemed to “prove” to me that I wasn’t very smart, that I wasn’t really learning anything from all my spiritual studies. Nothing could be further from the truth.

My experience didn’t prove my beliefs were correct. Not at all.

In fact, my experience was simply proving to me that my beliefs are made manifest as my experience. It is done unto me as I believe.

This is so important to understand – it’s life changing.

Our unhappy experiences prove that we believe our false beliefs – the truth will set us free from repeating these unhappy experiences. And forgiveness allows us to remember the truth.

In New Thought we say, “change your thinking, change your life.” And we talk about “false beliefs.”

I’ve discovered that it’s more helpful to realize that ALL beliefs are false and truth is true.
How do you know the difference between a belief and a truth?

All beliefs are conditional.
Truth is true for everyone all the time.

Beliefs are constantly shifting and changing, like the sinking sands.
Like God itself, Truth is unchanging – it’s the rock we can safely build our house upon.

I encourage us all to look around our life and see where we might have been misled into thinking that our experiences are proving our beliefs, when, in fact, our experience is just proving the existence of our belief.

When we rid ourselves of the belief – we rid ourselves of the experience. Free at last!

Many, many times I’ve spoken with people who felt helpless and hopeless in their relationships. When they become willing to change their minds and actually make the effort, they experience miracles. It really works!

It’s so important to be willing to prove Spirit works because it does!

How do we rid ourselves of the false beliefs?
It’s actually incredibly simple, when we’re willing to make a change.
If we’re not willing to make a change then we just keep revisiting the same painful lessons.
We cannot judge and hope to learn.

To release the false beliefs, opinions and judgments we offer them to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing. We don’t have to figure out HOW to have a healing we simply ALLOW.

Sometimes we might have to release, let go and let God, 1000 or more times if we have a strong attachment to a belief. But if we do it a few times a day, then we’re sure to let it go before too long – ANYTHING is better than struggling with the same painful belief for years and decades and feeling like a failure most of the time.

NOW is the time for us to rise and shine and throw off these meaningless burdens of false beliefs! We have an important mission to be truly helpful to help all beings liberate from false beliefs. We are perfectly designed for this undoing.

I talk with so many light workers who really have a strong desire to shine their light, and the main thing standing in their way is that they’re not worthy because they haven’t completely healed their life yet.

People think they cannot be helpful to another because they’ve still got major challenges, but that’s not true. That’s a false belief. I’ve learned that Spirit will lead and guide to me those I can assist. My job is to be helpful, not to judge my worthiness or anyone else’s!

So many light workers are waiting for something magical to happen in order to feel qualified. We’re already pre-qualified. Why would Spirit direct someone to us that we’re not able to support? That would make God dysfunctional and that’s not even possible.

I’ve found that healing is usually MUCH easier than we might think if we’re willing to work at the level of the mind. No matter what the issue is, something miraculous can be revealed.

Our willingness to Partner UP with the Higher Holy Spirit Self to do the heavy lifting is the thing that works. I know, I’ve proved it and I’ve worked with thousands who have done the same. Let’s be willing to have a healing NOW!

This past week on my weekly A Course in Miracles weekly Radio Show by request, the topic was Finding Happiness In This World. One thing I’ve definitely learned that applies to all of us. When we serve the Light, we find happiness. When we let go of false beliefs, we find happiness was hiding underneath all along. (FYI, you can search through the archive for episodes on whatever topic you’re interested in.)

These retreats are open to anyone who’d like to build their skills AND do some deep spiritual healing of patterns of unworthiness!

There’s so much healing that happens when we intend to share our Light with others! When others rise and shine, it’s my answered prayer!

What I know, with every fiber of my being, is that Spirit cannot fail. Only the ego experiences failure. Let’s let go of the very idea of failure. It is a false belief that has no power of its own without our investment in it. We choose Freedom today!

Learning

Thursday, June 14th, 2018

I can be like a sponge, soaking up everything in my environment. That’s one of the reasons why I like to be out in nature so much. In every moment of every day we’re taking in information, we’re constantly learning and observing. I say all the time: we’re always teaching the efficacy of our choices. Everyone around us is watching us and noticing whether our choices bring us happiness or upset. They learn by watching, we learn by experiencing.

Along this spiritual journey, the time came when I recognized that much of what I’ve learned from what people told me is untrue. These untruths that keep getting passed along stem from a belief in duality. A belief in good and evil – opposing forces. Now, I Know we live in a unified field – one and only one. Even though it doesn’t alway seem like it.

I believe that evil is not a separate force, but simply that which appears to be destructive.

Now, I remember that there are seasons to everything. Sometimes the winter season feels intensely destructive, and then spring comes and the renewal begins again.

I consider how many things I hear in a day that I could easily accept as true that are actually completely false. This is has been a major topic of conversation in the news for the last couple of years.

There are all manner of untruths. There are so many that are commonly accepted that we don’t even stop to think about whether they’re true – we just accept them.

Consider statements such as:

People don’t change.
Life is hard and then you die.
It’s better to give then to receive.
Time heals all wounds.

None of those is true. They are beliefs that have become accepted as truths, but they are not true. They are false.

Any lie I choose to believe will create upset in one way or another – guaranteed. The upset calls the falsehood to my attention so that I can address it. Upsets are triggers that let us know when something is up for healing. Let’s not miss anymore healing opportunities. Let’s make use of them ALL.

In ZEN MIND, BEGINNER’S MIND, Shunryu Suzuki writes, “When you forget all your dualistic ideas, everything becomes your teacher, and everything can be the object of worship.”

Today I invite you to make a list of beliefs you’ve accepted that you’d like to forget and replace with the truth. Be sure to include beliefs about yourself as well as beliefs about life and others. Doing this exercise will be profoundly helpful and healing, even if you only take 10 minutes with it.

By choosing to actively release our false beliefs, we take a giant step toward living in Truth. Through the personal practice of living in alignment with Truth we are a positive voice for truth in the world. Be in service to the Light. Be willing to forget the false! True learning is remembering the eternal truth.

Regret

Wednesday, June 13th, 2018

Do you ever feel under-appreciated? Do you think it’s because of what others are doing or not doing? I used to feel that way. And I used to let it eat up a bunch of my energy. I actually used to keep score and watch and wait to see if people would forget to appreciate me.

I would actually feel a deranged kind of victory if I “knew” they’d forget me and then they did. I got to be right about how wrong they were. I got to feel justified in my victim status.

I’d regret that I’d ever done anything nice for them in the first place. I’d resent that I’d wasted my energy. I kept cycling through this pattern for years. If only I’d realized that I was only doing things for others in order to get appreciation and recognition. No amount of outside recognition could complete me as long as I believed I was lacking.

Every time I did things to get appreciation I was affirming that I, of myself, wasn’t enough. I had to earn the Love and appreciation. The cure? Self-Love.

I knew I had gotten past that pattern of resentment when I helped to organize a HUGE event that was my idea and brought a great deal of benefit to many hundreds of people and was deeply healing and spectacular.

The whole event was my idea. I worked on it tirelessly. It was a major success.

And not one acknowledgement of me and my genius idea, my hard work, nothing, not even a mention of my name from the stage, from the ones who got the “credit.” And I was totally okay with that, because my reward was the healing that everyone had. I was completely fulfilled. Things were perfect, just as they were. I was filled with gratitude. I didn’t need anything more.

Have you ever felt taken advantage of? I used to feel that way a lot, and I haven’t felt that in a long time and I know why. No one can take advantage of me without my consent. I don’t give that consent anymore.

When I used to give of my time, energy, money, attention and affection in order to GET something then I used to feel taken advantage of. In actuality, I was manipulating people to try to get something from them. Like attracts like.

If you feel unappreciated then you’re probably giving in order to get something. It’s worth looking within to feel if you’re having any sense of resentment and ask “am I giving to get anything in return?” If you’re giving to get then you’re setting yourself up for upset.

Why set yourself up to be bothered? That’s not self-loving.

If you’d like others to be more loving toward you, be loving towards yourself.

I’ve learned that when I’m giving from the overflow of God’s bountiful goodness then I don’t need any recognition or appreciation. I’m giving because I have been given to. Being in the flow of Love is more than enough reward – it’s TRUE abundance!

A Course in Miracles tells us: “To have, give all to all.”

To have the consciousness of one who HAS, give love (which is all) to all. Don’t hold back Love and then you’ll feel the flow of Love in your life. Love is so much more enjoyable than resentment and regret. Flip the switch in your mind by loving yourself free of these limiting thoughts and habits. We have more important things to do with our energy and time! It’s time to shine!

Finding Happiness in This World

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018

The topic of my radio show today seems aptly timed. It comes as a request from a listener, and I notice that Spirit has timed it to coincide some well known, admired and loved people taking their own lives.

Happiness can seem entirely elusive when we’re looking outside ourselves for the remedy to our unhappiness. If we are aware that happiness is an inside job, then we may feel it’s twice as impossible.

Instead of looking for happiness or trying to find it, we can, instead, release the blocks to happiness. The blocks to happiness are the blocks to Love – they are the same. Rather than trying to find happiness, we can learn to ALLOW it. Our happiness is already available to us, it’s just that we’re preventing it.

This is where angels can be so helpful. Angels are like free-agents of happiness, helping us all-ways, all the time. We can be open to receiving.

People often tell me that when they first heard me talking about angels they thought I was nuts. Then, I encourage them to give the angels a chance to speak to them and help them release the blocks to Love, Peace, Prosperity, Joy and the all-good of life.

Once they start listening to angels, people have a whole new experience of life. Ask the angels to help you today and every day! You’ll be amazed at the results!

If you have an angel story, please share it below in the comments section!

Gratitude Multiplies the Good in Life

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

There’s always much to be grateful for even when things are really difficult. I recall one of the very first things we did in ministerial school was a sharing of what we were grateful for. For a long time before then I’d become ever more grateful for my awareness. I used to feel so confused by life and by my feelings about life. So much of what I experienced was confusing to me.

I was confused so often because my ego interpretations of things were false. I consistently experienced being brought up short by my misperceptions and misinterpretations. It really was confusing and disheartening to me. It took me so many years, decades even, to realize that the issue was not that I was an idiot, but that I was so attached to the meaning I made of things.

My interpretations of events and situations was so often completely off the mark, that I truly didn’t know what anything was for, so I was very often left feeling like the very ground beneath me was unstable. I was living on the shaky ground of my own perceptions.

One of the most powerful tools for healing that I know is the ability to be grateful for things as they are. I began to practice an attitude of gratitude. I began to be like the child who comes downstairs on Christmas morning and looks in her stocking only to find it full of horse manure and says, “there must be a pony around here somewhere!”

I’ve learned that, behind the picture I see on the screen of life, there is a powerful good unfolding for me. I’ve learned that when I can be grateful for it, whether I can recognize what the good is or not, then I draw it closer to me. Gratitude multiplies the good and makes it more evident too!

I’ve had enough years of pushing the good away with my stinking thinking. I’m so ready and willing to embrace the good in each moment.

Love is omnipresent and so is the Higher Holy Spirit Self. There’s no benefit to pretending that what is true is false. I’m done with that. Let me magnify the good with my gratitude. Let me share the benefits with everyone!

In this way, i can live a life of service every day in every way! I LOVE this life!

We’re almost there! I’m getting ready to announce three new trainings for those who are interested in professional training for your spiritual expansion. These three events are going to be co-led by Jon Mundy. Registration information is coming early next week!

Training #1 – Inspirational Writing
Thursday August 16 to Sunday 19th

Memorial Day Blessings

Monday, May 28th, 2018

I feel very blessed that my father never had to participate in the Viet Nam war because he had two young children (me and my brother) and wasn’t subject to the draft. My grandfather served in WWII and so did my great uncles, my grandmother’s brothers, Alva and Stanley. My father’s brothers also served in the military. I’m grateful for their service and the honor they brought as servicemen to our country and our family.

I have such a great respect for the people I know who have served this country in the military. I have many friends who are veterans and I respect and love them all deeply as people.

When I was younger I was so against war and violence that I couldn’t quite wrap my egotistical head around honoring our veterans and those who gave their lives in service. I was 10 years old in 1969, so I am certain I was also influenced by all the peace marches and things I attended with my parents.

Contemplating Memorial Day and celebrating the lives of the men and women who gave their lives in service to the U.S., I haven’t had any immediate family member who was killed in service. I’m grateful for that, and I wish it were true for everyone.

I’d like to live in a world where no on dies fighting for or against anything, because there’s no fight to the death for any reason at all. I believe we’re headed in that direction, and my life is dedicated to the achievement of Peace on earth.

Each day I consciously choose to let go of the thoughts and beliefs that cause me pain. I am consistently, more and more without upset and I am profoundly grateful for that. The Peace I have now I never imagined I could achieve.

I feel that the greatest thing I can do to honor the lives of those who gave their lives in service, is to truly live a life of love and to Love my life as an American. I greatly appreciate the rights that I have as a citizen of this country.

May Peace prevail on earth. For all the families that have had a loved one give their life in service to this country, I share this prayer from Alice Bailey:

The Great Invocation:

Let Light and Love and Power Restore the Plan on Earth.

From the point of Light within the Mind of God.

Let light stream forth into the minds of men.

Let Light descend on Earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of God,

Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.

May Christ return to Earth.

From the centre where the Will of God is known.

Let purpose guide the little wills of men,

the purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the centre which we call the race of men.

Let the Plan of Love and Light work out.

And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

Choosing Transformation for Liberation

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

For so long, it was so easy for me to get completely turned around and confused. Our days can be a myriad of events and interactions that almost seem to pummel us. Information is constantly pouring in and cluttering up our mind.

For decades I couldn’t tell the difference between ego’s voice and Spirit’s inspiration and I’d go off in directions that I thought were Spirit’s inspiration, but they were just ego distractions and detours.

With all that’s going on in this world and in our lives, we can lose perspective on what’s important, and stay in a haze of meaningless activity for a very long time.

What cuts through the haze is our spiritual practice. A valuable spiritual practice is one that we can be consistent with, and that feels uplifting. I’m clear that the best practice for me is one that I live ALL DAY LONG. It’s my walking the talk and living the Love all day long that keeps me clear headed.

I used to have a focus on collecting information. I thought if I knew more, it would help me to feel better and be happy.

In my pursuit of the “right” information, I read a lot of books and magazines and had lots of informative conversations. I was trying to pay attention to as many things in the world as I possibly could. It was tiring and I often felt that I wasn’t doing a good enough job. There was always so much information I didn’t have. I couldn’t easily quote Oscar Wilde or Helen Keller. There were always so many classics I still hadn’t read yet. I was driving more and more slowly on the information super highway of life, but not getting anywhere.

I was failing at collecting all the information I needed to have in case I was suddenly called to a dinner party with all the contributing writers for the New Yorker Magazine. I didn’t really read the New York Times thoroughly and I was caring about it less and less. I had a stack of spiritual books by my bed that was taller than my nightstand. All books I “should” read, but really didn’t want to.

I was investing money in things that really didn’t matter to me, but I thought would make me better. For a long time, I didn’t realize that by collecting books and information to make me better, I was affirming that there was something wrong with me, so even if I did read all the books cover to cover and had the ability to write a paper about them, it was all just affirmation of my “not enoughness.”

No wonder I didn’t want to read those darn books!

Fortunately, I started to realize that all that information collecting was a distraction to me and not that helpful. I cancelled all magazines and newspapers. I stopped watching the news. Through a series of events with my then landlord, my cable was disconnected so there went my tv watching. I started to read only the books I had a passion for and I read them very slowly and carefully.

A bonus was that I stopped having conversations about information. I began to recognize that the best reason to have a conversation was for the purpose of relating to people: living the Love and walking the talk.

I realized I could focus mostly on talking about our lives and leave the information super highway behind. I found an exit, and took it and I’ve been very glad that I did.

Information just isn’t satisfying to me anymore.
I find that it can really clutter the mind.

The bottom line: Information isn’t healing.
Being loving is healing.
Forgiveness is healing.

Clearing out the judgments, the opinions, the grudgers and greivances, as well as my complaints and criticisms made me realize that I’d rather focus on experiencing and expressing Love, that’s much more interesting than anything else! PLUS, it gives me the added bonus of contributing to a clear mind!

My invitation to you is to look at where you’re collecting information that’s just not truly helpful or satisfying. Information isn’t healing and it can have the effect of confusing and cluttering one’s mind. The focus on collecting information is a distraction of the ego. The ego analyzes to try to learn what it needs to be safe. The Spirit knows that being loving is our safety. No information is needed for that.

You can ask yourself, who really wants to read the book, me or the ego? The Spirit already knows everything. I find that spending time with Spirit is far more expansive and deeply satisfying. It’s healing. It’s also less expensive!

We can actively choose transformation for our liberation in each moment by staying alert to when the ego is presenting a distration. We can choose transformation for our liberation all day, every day and leave the past behind. Let’s step up our game and put the collection of information behind us. Let’s clear the mental clutter and make room for spiritual insights! Today’s the day!

Many of the people who are drawn to what I share are folks who’d like to be or already are professional lightworkers. At the Power of Love Ministry we’re expanding our programs to include teacher and minister training as well as prayer practioner training in addition to the Spiritual Counselor Training & Certification.

Elegant

Monday, May 21st, 2018

I love looking words up in the dictionary. Words are a power tool and I like to use them correctly and with intention. I also love elegance. It’s a quality of life that feels nourishing to me. According to Webster’s Dictionary, elegance means refined grace. I love the idea of being someone who walks in a space of refined grace.

I’m interested in cultivating an elegant approach to life. I’m interested in being one who is always invoking divine grace to be my teacher and my healer, my constant companion. There’s no extra charge to invoke grace at any moment of the day and so I choose to be elegant in my choices. Making elegant choices means making my decisions based on the wisdom I have come to know during the journey thus far. This is in contrast to making choices from my opinions and judgments.

There’s a an opportunity to allow divine elegance and grace to move in, through and around me in each given moment. I am the one to activate it and call it forth in order to experience it. My intention is to release any habit of waiting for someone else to do what is mine to do in my own life. My commitment is to become alert to the opportunity to choose to be elegant – to operate in my life with refined grace.

Learning to pause, and give Spirit a chance to guide me, opens my life to the constant grace of God. There is a natural elegance to our lives and we can find it through returning to Spirit when we’ve drifted. Yes, it can feel exhausting to practice this, but I’ve found that it gets easier and easier. The grace actually takes over.

Today I decide to actively cultivate the graceful choices which bring more beauty, more love, more honor, more excellence. I may not be sure of the outcome of my choices, but at least I can be sure of their intention. By choosing consciously I raise the vibration of my practice of nonviolence and in so doing I move the world in a direction of peace and elegance. How wonderful!

TEACHING RETREATS – I’m anticipating having a location for us soon and dates as well. As soon as I know those basics I’ll make an announcement. My intention is to be able to offer these trainings in August. Stay tuned!

We’re an expanding global spiritual community of prayerful people willing to be co-workers with God. We’re waking up together and finding freedom in our hearts. I’m so grateful for this!

Freedom

Monday, April 30th, 2018

In order to forgive and be free, we must understand that our opinions and judgments about what happened prevent us from harvesting the learning from our experiences. If we aren’t willing to see this and take responsibility for choosing to live this way, then we’re preventing ourselves from receiving the learning, harvesting the wisdom, applying it and moving on. So, we’re stuck repeating the same things again and again.

When we repeat the same things again and again, either through new experiences of the same patterns, or simply reviewing the past in our mind and becoming upset again and again we’re inflaming our mental and emotional bodies.

Dragging all that emotional and mental baggage with us, slows us down. That baggage is the weight of our unlearned lesson. In life, our Higher Holy Spirit Self has orchestrated for us to heal our negative karma.

Forgiveness is way to let the baggage go, harvest the wisdom, and stop causing the inflammation.

According to the medical doctors, inflammation is the cause of all illness and aging.

Forgiveness is an expression of Love. Love is the only true healer I know. Love heals things back to the root cause, and here’s why.

As Deepak Chopra and those who teach spirituality and quantum physics might say, Love is the ground of our being. In the bible it says that in God we live, move and have our being. In Lyn McTaggert’s powerful book, The Field, she draws together scientific proof of what Einstein knew about interconnectivity.

As a spiritual student, and a student of the great New Thought mystics and teachers such as Jesus, Phineas P. Quimby, Mary Baker Eddy, Emma Curtis Hopkins, Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, Ernest Holmes, Matthew Fox, Joel Goldsmith and A Course in Miracles, I’ve come to know absolutely that we live, move and have our being in a field of Love and that our Mother Father God, Infinite Creator is pure Love Intelligence which is omnipresent, omnipotent, omniactive, omniscience. In other words, one mind, one life, all love. The All in All.

A Course in Miracles tells us, “Teach only love, for that is what you are.” T-6.I.13.

We are Love. Therefore, it makes sense that when we choose to drop our judgements, grudges, resentments and regrets (which is what true forgiveness is), we are dropping the false ideas and beliefs that prevent us from remembering who we are, what we are, and what our purpose is in this world.

Our happiness depends upon our releasing all investment in the idea that we’re bad and that others are bad. Forgiveness is the way for us to do that.

Forgiveness is letting go of the story we made up so we can experience the truth that sets us free.

Forgiveness is the only way I know of for us to quickly and thoroughly heal the concept that we are bad, wrong, not enough, not good, and deserve to be punished.

Every person I’ve ever encountered in my profession as a spiritual counselor, teacher and minister who was suffering from something could experience true healing through practicing forgiveness. I’ve witnessed physical, emotional and mental healing consistently with those who actually practice.

Today I’m beginning one of my Spiritual Counseling Training Intensives. It’s a week-long intensive. Some of the folks who have done these trainings in the past have told me that they have healed chronic pain and illness in the intensive. Checking back with them many months later, they are still healed. I know that it is the effects of the anti-inflammatory, forgiveness practice.

Just think about it for a moment, does holding onto resentment, guilt, blame and shame ever make YOU feel better? Could it ever be a good investment of your energy for YOU.

Forgiveness returns you to your natural vibration of Love and that is healing on a physical, emotional, mental, etheric and spiritual level. Forgiveness is the gift you give yourself for your freedom.

The truth is you ARE Love.
The truth sets you free.
Forgiveness is a way to let go of the story you had and return to Freedom.

If you’re feeling stuck, trapped, depressed, or just sad, forgiveness is the way to Freedom. That’s why I offer my How to Get Over It free forgiveness workshop to those who are interested. If you take the steps I suggest, you will experience more Freedom.

You are the one who can set yourself free.
Freedom is in the mind. I
t’s a choice we make.
It’s the gift we share.

STARTS TODAY: My Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive is not just a professional training, it’s a deeply healing opportunity to let go of false beliefs. If you read the things people have said about how their lives change as a result, you will see that this is an opportunity for profound lasting personal healing.

If you’re willing, let’s do it together! Changing our lives and healing our minds is so much easier when we are the two or more gathered together for the same purpose. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive starting on Monday.

You can get all the episodes of my radio show, many have been transcribed, all available here livingacourseinmiracles.com/radio.

Crucible

Friday, April 13th, 2018

A crucible is a container that’s used to heat metals and other materials that require a very high temperature in order to melt. Sometimes, that’s what our life seems to be: a container for us to melt within.

I notice that many people, if not all of us on this spiritual path, go through a crucible experience. It really does seem as if no one is exempt from this crucible experience.

It also seems that it’s a great purification if we choose that. If we don’t choose it, the crucible seems to come back for further opportunity to purify.

You may know Arthur Miller’s brilliant play The Crucible, (probably one of the best plays ever written by anyone anywhere) set in the time of the Salem witch hunts, it’s an allegory for what was happening with McCarthyism, the blacklists and the communist “witch” hunt of the 1950’s.

Miller’s play is brilliant on every level and demonstrates what it’s like to be in the midst of a roiling boil of judgement, opinion, condemnation, fear, guilt, shame, blame and emotional overwhelm. A 1996 movie version starts Daniel Day Lewis, Winona Ryder and Joan Allen – it’s worth watching especially if you’ve never seen the play on stage.

In my observation of people as a spiritual counselor and teacher since 2000, pretty much everyone goes through at least one major crucible experience. It feels like you’re being attacked from all sides.

We can take this experience as a nightmare that we’re trying to escape from or fix, but there’s another way to look at this hellish crucible in our lives that actually turns it into a golden, liberating experience for your heart and mind. It is a profound spiritual alchemy opportunity. It’s a path of liberation. And it is for those who are more interested in living a life of Love than in looking good or being right.

To be able to rise above the experience of purification, we have to realize that the challenge is for the purpose of training our mind to focus on what we’d like, rather than what we don’t like. It’s a true challenge.

When we can stay focused, in faith, on what we’d like, then our life really does profoundly change, and forgiveness is the key to making this shift.

If you feel like you’re in a crucible, I invite you to practice gratitude for the purification and relax into willingness to let what doesn’t serve you go. It’s challenging, but when we can do this, the crucible may not need to be repeated! What a blessing that is.

My Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive is not just a professional training, it’s a deeply healing opportunity to let go of false beliefs. If you read the things people have said about how their lives change as a result, you will see that this is an opportunity for profound lasting personal healing. You can combine the Stop Playing Small Retreat with the Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive and get a discount! Plus we have payment plans and early bird special is on now!

If you’re willing, let’s do it together! Changing our lives and healing our minds is so much easier when we are the two or more gathered together for the same purpose. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of this month.

I haven’t offered a Stop Playing Small Retreat in for a couple of years, so if this interests you, please join! We practice and learn Self-Love in Spiritual Community and it’s a powerful healing and life-changing experience. We can accomplish a lot in a short time when we come together focused on transformation!

We’re an expanding global spiritual community of prayerful people willing to be co-workers with God. We’re waking up together and finding freedom in our hearts. I’m so grateful for this!

Always

Saturday, April 7th, 2018

Always is one of those words that really applies only to the creator. Spirit is an always system. Spirit is always the same, infinite, and unchanging. There is nothing in this world to which always applies. This world is ever-changing.

One really bad habit that I used to have was using the world always to “damn” myself to a hellish experience. Allow me to explain.

When something would happen that bothered me, I’d frequently resort to using the word always – particularly in relationship. I had a long list of always affirmations that were ruining my life and draining off the joy. Here are just a few:

They always do that to me.
They always forget about me.
They always think I’m going to …
They always let me down.
They always make it hard for me.
They always get in my way.
They’re always against me.

And on, and on, and on.

The ego loves to affirm the same negative affirmations again and again.

In truth, only God is always.
Always loving.
Always pure.
Always perfect.
This is our true nature, regardless of our personality and experience in life.

What happens is these negative affirmations become like prison walls around us, holding us in a constant repeat of the past, hence the “always.”

Those affirmations really helped me to keep playing small in my mind and in my heart. I saw the results in my relationships, my career, my finances, and in how I felt about my life. I was angry and bitter. I was afraid.

It’s up to us to interrupt the patterns.
Interrupting the negative pattern is 99% of the work of undoing it forever.

Interrupting the patterns is going the other way.
It’s choosing again.
It’s being willing to let Spirit guide us.

It’s our willingness to let the thought go that changes our experience.

Can you see that the thought is a defense against the truth of your life?

I used to say “they always let me down,” but it wasn’t true at all. That was my default when I felt concerned that my expectation might not be met. All expectations are attachments, and I’ve learned that it’s healthy for me to let ALL of them go. I can release the attachment, the needing, wanting and craving, without giving up my preferences.

Being willing to see that I was the one creating the prison in my mind with these negative affirmations was the first step to my Freedom.

I had to be able to see that my thoughts were manifesting my experience.

I had to be willing to see that my painful experience wasn’t happening TO me, it was happening BY me. My limiting, constricting, accusatory thoughts were creating the prison in my mind and my life was reflecting it.

I had to be willing to take responsibility for choosing my thoughts.
I had to be willing to invite the Higher Holy Spirit Self into my mind for healing.

Willingness was the key that opened the prison that my mind had become.

What is the negative always affirmation you hear most often in your mind?
Are you willing to give it up to the HHSS for healing so you can have a new experience?

Changing our lives and healing our minds is so much easier when we are the two or more gathered together for the same purpose. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of April.

I haven’t offered a Stop Playing Small Retreat in for a couple of years, so if this interests you, please join!

Making Real Change

Friday, April 6th, 2018

Real change is lasting change. Real change is actually letting go of that which obscures our true identity expressing in this world. Real change is eliminating the false beliefs, habits, mental and emotional patterns that keep us repeating the past.

I’ve always been interested in movies, stories and television shows about exploring. I particularly find it interesting to look at things related to shifting dimensions of time and space. I find that when I’m watching these kinds of stories the Higher Holy Spirit Self inspires me in many ways. All kinds of insights about how to heal my mind come flashing through. It’s cool!

Recently, in Germany with several beautiful folks who are in classes with me, we had a talk about spiritual phenomenon. I shared that I’m not interested in phenomenon, which might seem like a complete contradiction about what I said about enjoying entertaining stories about shifting dimensions of time and space.

Allow me to explain further.

I am interested in two things:

1. Attaining enlightenment, waking up and living as an awakened being, walking in this world as a Bodhisattva, dedicated to living and demonstrating endless compassion.
2. Supporting other people who are interested in waking up.

That’s what’s important to me. Phenomenon isn’t a part of that journey, although certainly, I experience interesting phenomenon from time to time. I’ve experienced time speeding up and slowing down. I’ve experienced things disappearing and reappearing. I’ve experienced being invisible. All kinds of things, but it’s only valuable to me if it helps me to awaken and let go of a false identification with a false self.

Real change is when we forgive ourselves for the decisions we made based upon our opinions and judgements from the past. That’s the ONLY thing I know that brings REAL and lasting change.

Self-forgiveness is the one thing that brings permanent healing and change.

And, I see that the most dedicated spiritual students will spend many years studying all kinds of spiritual teachings, trying to memorize the names of archangels, ascended masters, and gathering information, while avoiding actually doing the forgiveness work. And that’s why I stay focused on supporting people actually staying focused on the work that is meaningful and life-changing. It’s so challenging to stay focused, at least it used to be for me. It really was the hardest thing I ever did!

I learned how to stay focused because I made the decision to have a healing. I became determined to not give up and stay focused and still its was challenging for me. This is why creating opportunities for consistent, authentic, non-judgmental support is the focus of my life.

When we forgive ourselves now for the mis-takes of the past, then we unlock the wisdom that was hidden in the events of the past. We cannot unlock the wisdom, the value, the energetic rocket boosters encoded into our past without the self-forgiveness.

Blaming others prevents us from learning.
Defending ourselves is not the best use of our energy and time.
There is nothing to defend.
All attack, is an illusion.
When our heart is open, there can be no attack.
It takes willingness to see that and feel it.

When we forgive ourselves now for the mis-takes of the past, then we unlock the wisdom that was hidden in the events of the past, and with that wisdom now unfolding in our heart, we make different choices now, and that not only changes the present moment, it changes the future.

In this way we are time travelers.
When we forgive, we energetically travel back in time and change the past.
The past shifts.
The past goes from being a burden we carry to being a gift we can share with others, and the light is revealed.

Now is the time, now is the time, now is the time!
Now is the time for us to change our mind and stop dragging the burdens of the past around.

We’re not meant to play small, and that’s why it’s so painful for us.

Changing our lives and healing our minds is so much easier when we are the two or more gathered together for the same purpose. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of April.

I haven’t offered a Stop Playing Small Retreat in for a couple of years, so if this interests you, please join!

POV

Friday, March 30th, 2018

POV stands for “point of view,” which is your perspective. We all have a general POV or perspective on life. A Course in Miracles tells us in Workbook Lesson 190 that “Pain is a wrong perspective.” Our perspective is the place we’re viewing life from.

ACIM tells us that when we’re in pain it’s because we’re seeing life from the perspective of being separate from the infinite creator God, and on our own, a mere body in the sea of life. There are further refinements we can make in terms of understanding our perspective in order to let it go and see correctly.

From our POV it can seem that the glass is half-empty or half-full or we can see it correctly: the glass is always full. A glass half-full of water is also half-full of air, therefore it is full. No matter how much water or air is in the glass, it’s always full.

Our goal is to see things correctly, as they truly are, rather than through the distorted lens of our interpretations and the meanings we’ve made of things that become our POV.

Some people look at the world from the perspective that no matter what they do they’ll always lose. It’s the victim perspective. They cannot win. The deck is stacked against them. I remember feeling that way because that was my POV. This was a very painful perspective to me, it was without hope.

Some people can see that from their POV, sometimes they win, sometimes they lose, you have to “know when to hold ‘em and when to fold ‘em,” as the song says. In this perspective there’s a winner and a loser. It’s a competitive world. Dog eat dog. I remember feeling that way and seeing everything, everything, EVERYTHING as a competition. I had to look out for #1.

This was also a painful perspective for me. It was endlessly exhausting. Plus, when you do win, you have the pain of knowing someone else lost and you’re the one that contributed to their suffering.

And then I saw a ray of light in my own heart. It was my desire to be a compassionate person. I decided to focus on that and it pulled me out of the darkness. My focus on the light brought me from the painful perspective of endless competition, winning and losing and not feeling good about either.

Now, I’m aware that everything works together for the good of all and there are no exceptions, except in the opinion of the ego. This goes with me always. I cannot lose, because no matter what may appear to be a loss, it is for my good and for the good of all when I can see it correctly. I’ve trained myself to shift my perspective if I start to feel pain. I align with the divine perspective.

I cannot yet see through all directions of time and space all of the time, but it is happening more and more. I may not like everything that occurs, but I can find the beauty in it.

Right now, our children are taking to the streets to demonstrate their own sense of self-worth and they are taking the lead because the adults aren’t stepping up. It’s not wonderful that so many of them had to be terrorized and murdered before they decided to take action.

It’s not ideal that the adults would let the children go unprotected and be manipulated by corporate greed, but at least the change is happening now and while we may not be able to lead the children, we can bless them and support them and help them learn to speak their message from the heart so they can fully change the world through the power of Love.

I hold that we can move to a consciousness that doesn’t require loss and competition. I feel it happening. Sometimes we have to fall down really hard, and get hurt before we start to really look where we’re going and set our sights on a goal worth having.

We’re in the midst of a big change. It’s in our face right now. We’re seeing that life in the matrix of corporate greed is not the best we can do. We can choose to experience the new heaven and the new earth.

Globally, humanity is making that shift in perspective. It’s what our lives are really about. Light workers all over the world are awakening and answering the call to be the change they’d like to see in the world. We’re it. Now’s the time. Today’s always the perfect day to say YES to Love and ask the Higher Holy Spirit Self shift our POV. We don’t have to know HOW we simply ALLOW. It’s our divine inheritance to be right-minded and clear-sighted. Together we choose Love.

If you feel that you’ve been playing small in any way, I’d love to support you in breaking free of that. If you’re feeling called to do this work with me, please trust that and allow Spirit to provide what is needed so that you can answer the call you’re feeling. We can do this together!

Changing our lives and healing our minds is so much easier when we are the two or more gathered together for the same purpose. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of April.

Easier

Thursday, March 29th, 2018

Sometimes it feels like we’re so far away from where we’d like to be that we feel overwhelmed. It can feel as though its impossible. Especially when there’s a combination of things, such as illness, debt, depression, relationship challenge, loss of a loved one, and even more. Some people seem to have all of them at once.

In those times of overwhelm, when it seems like anything and everything is working against you, that is a time of great opportunity. I cannot emphasize this enough: If you’re willing, in the time of greatest challenge, Spirit can move a mountain if you ALLOW it. You DO have to be a very willing participant, but you, yourself, do not have to move the mountain. However, without your allowing and calling it forth, the mountain will not be moved. And this is where I’ve seen people transform their lives.

I used to feel stuck and overwhelmed by how I felt about my life and my self. I didn’t see how I could ever make the changes that I wanted made. It felt like too big a mountain to me.

At that time, I was daily struck down by my failures and seeming incompetencies. I was surviving, but that wasn’t enough for me, I wanted more and I couldn’t figure out how to unlock the door.

True spiritual growth felt so elusive to me.
I felt discouraged.
It felt so hard.

That’s when I learned the amazing power of a true desire to know Spirit. I decided to put ALL of my focus and attention in my life on looking for the opportunities to be loving and kind to myself and others. I decided to find the way to God through being aligned with Spirit through the activity of being loving and BECOMING willing to let go of my unloving thoughts.

I became vigilant for becoming willing by being willing to be willing to be willing. It really worked for me.

I became willing to GIVE to the Higher Holy Spirit Self everything that didn’t serve me. I didn’t know how to take out the trash in my mind, but I did learn how to give it away.

The miracle is, what doesn’t serve us, that we’re willing to let go of, Spirit will take from us. Spirit WILL do the heavy lifting. And that makes it so much easier.

Instead of trying to figure out how to move the mountain, ask Spirit and then ALLOW it to be done.

Focus on your willingness to let the past go.
Focus on your willingness to look for and make the loving choices.

God can move the mountain, but only if we’re willing. Only if YOU are willing will it work.

Quit complaining, criticizing and manipulating.
Look for opportunities to demonstrate your willingness to let it go.
It works!
And it’s so much easier than trying to figure out how to let it go.
Focus on the willingness and Spirit will do the heavy lifting.

If you feel that you’ve been playing small in any way, I’d love to support you in breaking free of that. If you’re feeling called to do this work with me, please trust that and allow Spirit to provide what is needed so that you can answer the call you’re feeling. We can do this together!

Guidance

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

Do you prefer information or insight? One thing I know about the ego is it’s always seeking to collect more information. Many spiritual students, myself included, can get hung up on collecting information. I’ve learned the hard way that information isn’t healing. Love is healing and only Love is healing. I’ve allowed myself to be so distracted by collecting information that, in the end, was completely useless to me.

It’s important to know what the motivation is – is the motivation to end your suffering? To feel better? To gain something? I’ve learned that none of those things can actually be accomplished by gathering information. There’s no amount of information that has ever been healing to me.

The ego is constantly in search of data to prove someone wrong or right and that is a completely useless pursuit. Spirit already knows everything. OUR Spirit already knows everything. That knowing is our access to True Wisdom. Accessing Divine Wisdom clears the clutter of our mind. Accessing Divine Wisdom is healing – and it’s always available to us!

Here’s the three step process that changes our life: Ask, Listen, Follow.

Ask for guidance.
“Listen” (or sense) the guidance.
Follow the guidance.

All the energy that I used to put into collecting spiritual information, I now invest in “ask, listen, follow” to support my becoming more awake, aware, patient and kind. This is what brings me benefit AND Joy!

Do you find yourself searching for information when you don’t even need it? Is it just a distraction that makes your ego feel “good.” Do you have stacks of books that you never bothered to read and that you feel if you did someday read them they would somehow help you be more spiritual? Don’t believe that line of thinking anymore!

Consider: has collecting information ever improved your life?

Instead of collecting information, get out there and be helpful.

I used to collect books and information, but not anymore – I’ve realized it just doesn’t serve me. It actually weighs me down. Lots of information can be like clutter in the mind. I’m interested in clearing my mind and by focusing on Love I’m able to do that! Phew!

When the ego is driving your spiritual practice it seems like information is helpful, that’s when it’s MOST helpful to put Spirit in charge! That’s what the miracle happens. Healing is ours, when we allow it.

Staying focused on healing and not being distracted by shiny objects is part of our spiritual practice and discipline.

Spirit will discipline our mind for us when we allow ourselves to become a true disciple of the truth.

Today is a really good day to start!

We practice and learn Self-Love in Spiritual Community and it’s a powerful healing experience. It’s a living, loving, beautiful expression of Spirit’s Love. We are an expanding global spiritual community of prayerful people willing to be co-workers with God. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of April.

If you feel that you’ve been playing small in any way, I’d love to support you in breaking free of that. If you’re feeling called to do this work with me, please trust that and allow Spirit to provide what is needed so that you can answer the call you’re feeling. We can do this together!

Forgiveness & Freedom

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

If you knew, I mean really KNEW that your spiritual practice could relieve all your suffering, your pain, your confusion and any sense of limitation you had, would you be willing to place more focus on it?

I’m a big fan of writer Malcolm Gladwell. His book The Tipping Point is a great one and my favorite of his books is Outliers: The Story of Success. I highly recommend Outliers: The Story of Success to all spiritual seekers and here’s why: In Outliers, Gladwell tells us how it is that some people can be so completely OFF THE CHARTS successful. Gladwell is an investigative reporter tackling the subject of what makes some people so much more successful than others and some of the key things he discovers really struck me.

One of the main contributions to people’s success is that they have a really STRONG PASSION for their chosen field. They LOVE it. They would do it for free. And, in their passionate pursuit, in their hunger and thirst for engaging in whatever their passion is, they put in at least 10,000 hours of practice. At least TEN THOUSAND HOURS of practice.

What I realized when I first read Malcolm’s book is: I did that. In passionate search for understanding my Divinity and connecting clearly to the Oneness of all life and knowing God with my whole heart, I put in at least TEN THOUSAND HOURS of practice. In doing so, I reached a tipping point. In forgiving and forgiving and forgiving and doing all of the spiritual practices that I’ve been guided to do (mostly by Spirit, but also by some teachers in the visible world as well), I finally cleared away enough of the blocks to have a clear connection and maintain it.

When I started this practice, I didn’t think I could get to where I am in this lifetime. I didn’t think it was even remotely possible. I say that because I’d like to encourage YOU to aspire to something beyond what you even think is attainable. And I am here to support you if that’s what you’d like to do. That’s why I take time to write this blog and record the prayers every day. This is my passion!

What do you need to get to your tipping point?
It takes willingness.
It takes a hunger and a thirst for BEING the Love in your life. You must be willing to recognize that YOU are the love of your life. Underneath everything you think you are, but you’re actually not, is the purity of God’s Love.

Are you willing to let everything else go? If you are, all else will be added unto you. How cool is that?

Revelation & Realization

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

Ernest Holmes taught us that, the only time that it takes for us to have a healing is the time that it takes for us to have a realization of truth. It’s so true!

Instead of praying for things to be different in the world, let us pray for a realization of truth so that we can REALLY change things in an everlasting way. When our mind changes for real our life changes for real. All healing IS at the level of the mind.

In my classes we talk about “proving God works.” When we experience miraculous healing at all levels, then we are proving God and we know that Spirit is at work in our lives. The miracle happens in our mind, and then we KNOW God.

We’re all capable of miraculous healing revelations and realizations. This is our natural miracle mindedness. We can learn to rely on it.

We can learn to be whole hearted rather than simply paying lip service to spiritual teachings. We can be the living, breathing demonstration of Love like Jesus was. He has told us that we shall do even more.

Let’s believe Jesus today.
Let us allow Jesus to prove God in our life today.

We are willing, Lord!

Interrupt Victim Patterns

Monday, March 12th, 2018

Do you have a repetitive cycle of being a victim in some way? A lot of people do. Do you ever have fantasies of being a victim? Have you ever let people take advantage of you, just so you could make them feel guilty and bad about it afterwards? These are some crazy patterns we get to deal with in our earth experience! No wonder it can feel so intense.

All those victim stories and victim mind trips take up a huge amount of energy. It’s a bit like the criminal mastermind who works so hard to find a way to steal, cheat and lie to get money when they could apply that same genius capacity to creating something wonderful and achieving abundance that way. These are the crazy negative patterns that suck the life out of our life. And they CAN be healed – this I know, because I’ve proved it with myself and those who participate in my classes.

A single belief is the foundation for a myriad of negative thoughts. It’s as though the belief is a host for a bunch of spiders building negative web patterns that are very sticky in our mind. Let’s give the Higher Holy Spirit Self the heavy lifting.

What’s SO valuable is to recognize them and interrupt them. As much as possible
Interrupting these patterns is a BIG part of healing them.

When we interrupt the pattern, rather than investing in it as usual, we begin to see that we are not the pattern.

The victim pattern isn’t part of us, no pattern is. The pattern has no power or volition until we invest our belief in it.

There aren’t any REAL benefits to being a victim, but it can seem like there are. That might seem crazy, but next time you feel the victim story running in your mind, the next time you start fantasizing about being a victim in some way, shape or form, ask yourself what the value of that is to you. Ask yourself what is the perceived benefit? Is the benefit that being a victim offers really what motivates you?

Interrupting the pattern makes such a difference in our lives!

You can do it when you give the heavy lifting to the Higher Holy Spirit Self! You make the decision to interrupt the pattern of victimhood and then when the opportunities come, be willing to choose what’s unfamiliar. No one else can do it for you, but all of life does it WITH you when you say YES! Why not decide now?

Our decision to be our true self, rather than acting like a victim, makes a real difference. Hold to the decision, partner UP, and be willing to practice. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you can release the patterns of a life time!

Would you like support to shift your thinking, eliminate the negative patterns and improve your life? My intention is to inspire you to take your practice deeper. I’ll also be talking about ways that you can do that with me. More is possible than we can even imagine – truly! People are joining my spiritual bootcamp class for truly living A Course in Miracles – you can too!

Finding Freedom Now

Sunday, March 11th, 2018

On Wednesday registration closes for my Finding Freedom class and I’ve got freedom on my mind! The only thing that can ever block our freedom and seem to imprison us on a spiritual level is our agreement to live in limitation. No one is forced to mentally agree to live in limitation. Even if your body is imprisoned, sick, and tortured your mind can still be free. That is your natural state.

History is filled with extraordinary stories of people who were physically imprisoned and who discovered true liberation through their experience. Prison became the pressure that turned their mind of dark coal into a diamond light. Think of Nelson Mandela. He’s told us that his liberation from prison didn’t happen until he was willing to see that violence was not the way and that peace was the only path of true liberation. It took him decades of sitting in prison to bust loose from the prison of his beliefs.

There are so many ways that you can convince yourself that you are not free and will never be free. Yet, no matter how convinced you are it will never, ever be true. Isn’t that wonderful?

To liberate yourself you must decide that you are interested in bustin’ loose from the mental habit of enslavement to the ego. You must choose. No one can liberate you. No thing can liberate you. No company, no government, no spiritual or religious leader, no book, no class. Although you can have amazing and powerful help, only you, yourself, can choose to liberate your mind. The power is within you. It’s always been there and you’ve always known it. For those who have eyes to see it they will find it. The Kingdom is pre-installed. You are pre-approved.

Are you willing to learn the mental discipline of freedom or will you tell yourself it’s too hard and you cannot do it? As soon as you are willing, it will be shown to you and then you can share it with others. What glory that awaits you!

If today you are still feeling focused on thinking you don’t have what it takes, then at least decide how much longer you will pretend you don’t have it. Decide today. How much longer you will enjoy the view from your prison? Set a date for your liberation.

Your activation awaits your choice. It’s really not so far away. Only one choice, one decision. Partner UP. Let the Spirit do the heavy lifting. It works!

This is the truth that sets you free. Eventually you will choose freedom. You decide when.

It’s so much EASIER to learn through Joy than through pain.
It’s so much EASIER to do it when we do it together.

Would you like support to shift your thinking and your life? People are still joining my spiritual bootcamp class for truly living A Course in Miracles – you can too!

Wanting VS Having

Saturday, March 10th, 2018

I am a big Rolling Stones fan for decades. I’ve followed them on tour, and I’ve seen them so many times over the years. I always loved the song You Can’t Always Get What You Want and now I have a whole new understanding of that phrase. I love the song, but not the wanting!

If you’re interested in manifesting a life with more ease, grace, Love, fun, Freedom, Prosperity and Abundance, then let me just say, it is SO much easier than you can imagine. TRULY!

A Course in Miracles tells us, “ALL healing is at the level of the mind.” And that reminds us that it’s an inside job. Our healing is never dependent on what’s happening int he world. Never! So, let’s get on with our healing!

#1 – when we affirm that we want or need something, we’re actually affirming that we don’t have it and we’re pushing it away on an energetic level. I encourage you to release the words WANT and NEED from your usage. Rock your healing!

Yes, it’s true, you can’t always get what you want. And giving up wanting for having makes life far more enjoyable.

#2 – Usually most people who experience lack think of what they want, and then feel bummed out because they don’t have it. Hence, the experience of lack. The feeling of lack comes from affirming lack and blocks their receiving it. Additionally by affirming a belief that they can’t have it, they don’t deserve it, or that it’s hard to get, it begins to feel further and further away.

I use this phrase: I’d like to have…

And then I let it rest in the mind of the infinite. Intentionally, I don’t start figuring out how to get it. I allow what is my highest and best to come to me or for me to be led to it. It’s actually an incredibly simple practice! Try it, you’ll like it! It’s effective AND it’s easy. You won’t believe it until you start to REALLY practice it. When you do begin to really practice it you’ll start to realize just HOW TEMPTING it is to cancel out your desire with thoughts of lack and limitation. Be mindful!

I can’t tell you how many people will defend their lack and limitation. I share what I’ve learned and they immediately jump in with “yes, but you don’t understand my situation …” Then they explain how the world of effects is organized to defeat their abundance.

The world of effects is a projection of our thoughts and beliefs. How can the world possibly be the cause of ANYTHING?

Realizations like this one are the DIRECT result of spiritual practice. That’s why my offerings are all about clearing out the hidden negative habits and applying the practical tips and tools that really make a difference in the quality of our lives.

Would you like support to shift your thinking and your life? People are still joining my 7 week spiritual bootcamp class – you can too!

Higher Calling

Friday, March 9th, 2018

With each passing day I’m more and more clear that what I feel called to do is to support the folks who feel called to share this message of Love. For so long I didn’t feel qualified, and yet I felt called.

For a long time I studied spiritual principles and learned so much, but the learning wasn’t helping me as much as I felt it should. I discovered how to bridge the gap of feeling unqualified and now, there’s nothing I’d rather do than help those who feel called find their inner-qualifications.

When we feel called from the heart, there’s a burning desire to share and reach out to others. It’s Spirit IN us. We are IN-spired. In Spirit. And from there, we will be given what we need.

In class yesterday, I led a visioning that was so powerful. It was abundantly clear that we each have a higher calling that is unique.

A Course in Miracles tells us that our script is already written and that there are many different possibilities in our script and with every choice we make we open different areas of the script. We can open higher possibilities in our script than we are currently experiencing. We really can “go for it.”

Let’s give Spirit the heavy lifting of figuring out how – our job really is to be willing and to allow.

There’s so much more healing for us to experience and we’re right on the edge of it NOW.

Will you hold a higher vision for your life? Will you let Spirit show you how?

I would like to share with everyone how much more is possible for each of us – and by more, I mean more Peace, more Love, and more TRUE JOY!

I’m so glad we’re doing it together because I love the company!

FREE CLASS AVAILABLE NOW: Now is the time for us to truly LIVE these teachings of A Course in Miracles and that’s why I’m feeling called to offer this free class I just recorded. My topic is Living A Course in Miracles. This is a free class so anyone can join – and I’ll be offering some live-coaching

My intention is to inspire you to take your practice deeper. I’ll also be talking about ways that you can do that with me. I’ll preview my Finding Freedom Spiritual Bootcamp class where we focus on truly living ACIM and we join together to bring on miraculous breakthroughs. The next Finding Freedom Spiritual Bootcamp begins on March 14th. I’ve added some new things for you to check out! It’s truly better than ever.
