Support

Friday, January 19th, 2018

Many of us had experiences when we were younger where we were given things to enjoy and then told later that there was a price for them.  Women are particularly familiar with this.  I’d venture to say that there’s hardly a woman that has accepted an invitation for an evening out that wasn’t expected to also pay up with some kind of sexual favor.

Many fear a hidden price tag.  Many are tired of living with people who keep score and who don’t give anything without expecting something in return.  I find that women are often the ones most likely to keep score, perhaps because they also tend to do more in the home then men do.

For reasons such as these, folks begin to conclude that it’s better for them to not owe anyone.  As a result they become less receptive in general.  This then causes a beginning of greater and greater limitation.  People who have a greater experience of lack, when we look deeply into it, have often become highly resistant to receiving even a compliment.

If you’d like to reverse this, realize that all there is comes from God. Determine to become receptive to whatever people would like to give you, including all kindnesses.  There are no extra points for doing everything on your own and not needing anyone.

We give God a chance to flow in our life by being a grateful receiver.  There may be times when it seems as though people would like to give you something you don’t really need or want, but if you pause with it, you may be able to feel the value of being receptive anyway.

I’ve learned the value of asking for help from the visible and the invisible.  My practice is one of remembering to ask, be receptive and allow the flow of good into my life.  Allowing the flow is essential to experiencing expansive goodness.

It’s God’s nature to always be giving.  Our job is to allow!

Goodness

Thursday, January 18th, 2018

A Course in Miracles tells us that everything works together for our good and there are no exceptions.  To the surface mind this is impossible to believe.  It’s just not acceptable in any way.  It’s non-sensical.

This is why we either accept it on faith or we don’t.  It’s easy to argue with the truth.  It’s easy to make a case against it.  It’s challenging to accept it.

And yet, if we label our experiences as working against us, and NOT for our good, we are pushing away our experience of the very good that we desire.  For those who have eyes to see and ears to hear, the good of God is encoded into each moment for us to receive.

We cannot experience the good that life is offering us if we’re labeling our experiences as bad and wrong.  Who can see the good in that which they’ve labeled bad?  It takes humility to open the door to perceive with the clear sight of the pure heart.

When I look back over my days, I can consistently see that when I accepted that there was good to be found in the most difficult times, I was led right to it, eventually.  Without faith I was blind.  I was lost.  With faith comes the experience of grace.

When I was in the thick of it, I couldn’t possibly have deduced that my mother’s long slow painful illness and passing would have been the perfect vehicle for me to work with my mind and bring me Peace for the rest of my life, but it did and I saw it clearly after my mother passed.  Ten years later, I still have Peace.

It’s far easier and more enjoyable to walk through life declaring that my good is where I am, always;  my good is here now and forever; I am available to receive it now and forever; and I am so very grateful for the good that is now.  It is God’s goodness always with me.

Rightness

Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

In Masterful Living Year 2 Class we were talking about how beautiful it is to realize that we no longer need to be right about everything.  Instead of fighting for being right again and again and again in our most intimate relationships, we can choose to simply acknowledge the other person’s perspective and give thanks for it.

It’s a truly wonderful thing when we can graciously accept other people’s points of view without needing to add our own or change theirs if we don’t agree.  We can just allow things to be as they are and enjoy the Peace.

I’ve seen such remarkable changes in my relationships, particularly my family, but also my friendships.  By no longer having contentious conversations we are able to enjoy each other and the flow of Love is much more palpable.  People feel so much more loved and accepted when we aren’t making them wrong a lot of the time.

If you would like to really have more Love in your life, make a strong commitment to end the need to be right.  It doesn’t matter very much when we are right, but it matters a whole lot when we can be loving.

Let’s choose to be loving.  It’s really worth it!

Powerful Spiritual Practice

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

In my year-long Masterful Living Course we redefine success means to us.  So often people define success as something achieved on the outside.  Success in the world is what most people think of us.

Success in the world is often a show, it’s an illusion of accomplishment.  Even if you build the tallest building, someone might decide to fly a plane into it and send it crashing to the ground, making of it a monument to hurt and anger.

Even if you win the Academy Award for Best Actor like Paul Muni or Paul Scofield for spectacularly brilliant performances – people might completely forget you ever existed or your accomplishment ever happened.  And would it make any difference if they did remember?

Someday it may be that no one will remember Madonna or Tom Cruise.  Franklin Pierce was President of the United States of America for 4 years and I’ll bet you cannot name one thing he did that is noteworthy.

If we define success by something outside of us then we’re missing the opportunity to experience true and lasting success.

What is success to you?
What do you really value most?

The only thing we can take with us from this human life is our awareness.  What’s your focus now?  Are you placing your attention on something that has lasting value?  If not, then is it a surprise that you don’t feel successful?

When we place our attention on being loving and sharing Love, then we’re focusing on something of lasting value and we can feel the difference it makes.  That’s true success.

What I love about the power of an effective spiritual practice is that you can immediately start to feel successful.  With a very simple spiritual practice you can change your life from messy to miraculous.

Having a spiritual practice that you can apply throughout your day, under whatever circumstances, is a big step towards feeling empowered, confident and secure.

Spiritual practice is how we eliminate insecurity and self-doubt.  Working in form, pushing density isn’t the way to feel truly successful.  Healing our mind is the way to discover a success beyond this world, that’s also effective IN this world.  And that’s a truly wonderful thing!

King – A Life of Service

Monday, January 15th, 2018

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is a hero of mine. Back in the late 90’s I joined with many other people across the nation celebrating the work of King and also Gandhi. We were honoring their legacy and the teachings of nonviolence.

Both of these men were profoundly inspired by the teachings of Jesus and both of them inspired a revolution of civil rights within their country. Both men, their teachings and their lives continue to inspire me and many others who desire to live a life of service and recognize the power of Love to transform our hearts and minds as well as our world.

I’ve experienced great healing listening to and reading Rev. Dr. King’s speeches. They never fail to inspire and uplift. He had such a gift!

One of my favorite teachings of Rev. Dr. King is his Loving Our Enemies sermon. It’s so powerful and beautiful and I’ve made it a part of both my Finding Freedom and Masterful Living Curriculum. You can click here to read the sermon  and you can listen to the sermon here. I believe you’ll find the speech is just as powerful now as it was then and it speaks to our hearts just as clearly now as it did then. The same lessons apply to our life every day.

As King demonstrates for us so clearly, Love is the way, Love is the answer, Love is an act of service, Love is our redeemer.

It’s a great reminder at a time when there feels like a lot of divisiveness.  The time is always right to do what is loving.  What’s loving is always what’s right.

The time is always right and RIPE for us to answer the call to Love, to forgive and to be of service. When we live in this way, from our heart, then our life is an inspiration to all. This is our destiny and our calling. All are called.

I invite you to listen to the speech, to savor it and apply King’s teaching to your life. You’ll find that if you do, your life will open up in ways you never imagined!

It’s not everyone who is willing to take a stand for Love. It’s not everyone who so values Love and understands the power of Love to heal and to redeem, that they’re willing to forgive, truly forgive, release all judgment and Love. But there are more of us. And it is the Light within us that cannot be hidden.

We can all live to serve the Light within us. All are called to shine their light. All are called to forgive. Every day offers us new opportunities to let the past go and to choose our Freedom.

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

To have Love, strength, courage and faith – give compassion, which is Love, which is ALL, to all. Having compassion for all is our divine opportunity to rise above our humanness and to transcend the limitations of a mundane life. All are called every day. We are called, every day.

Teacher

Thursday, January 11th, 2018

We all have a connection to the I AM presence which is our own Higher Holy Spirit Self – the Holy Spirit – the teacher within. We’re all receiving excellent insight and guidance perfectly designed for us. We’re receiving this inspiration all of the time. The thing to ask yourself is – are you accepting it?

For several years I prayed constantly to accept the guidance I was getting.  I prayed to allow myself to really receive it.  I prayed to listen and follow.  I felt that I had so much resistance and reluctance and I knew I was delaying my joy and awakening.

The more I increased my spiritual practice, the more I felt that reluctance falling away.  It wasn’t quick and easy.  I really had to focus on my desire to be aligned with Truth.  Still, it was miraculous that I could have any movement at all.

In the process I discovered the inner teacher was real.
I discovered for myself that I had what it took to commit to this path.

I came to realize that the teaching was written in my heart and in everyone’s heart.  The question became – will you look within?  Will you discover that teaching and live it?  Your willingness is all that’s required.  Your inner guru knows the way if you will trust.  It’s not easy, but it’s worth it!

This is the year of New Beginnings.  Our freedom from confusion and resistance is at hand!

This is the year of our reveling in the light! I claim it and I allow it! And so it is!

Are you ready to rock this year of New Beginnings? Let’s do it together!

Healing

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018

I AM focused on healing. I don’t have any problem telling anyone who’s interested that I’m ACTIVELY working on the healing of my mind. I used to have the experience of 2 steps forward and 1.99 steps back – I had that experience a lot. It was really painful. I had lots of self-judgment and self inflicted pain and suffering, berating myself for not doing better.

Yes, I’ve experienced steady growth, but there were constant set backs and I often felt ashamed that I couldn’t seem to do better. Now, all that has changed.

I feel a steady progressive healing. I have learning experiences, but no set backs. Why? Because I’m not  judging myself for being a learner. I’m SO grateful that I can be a learner.

Every learning opportunity is a healing opportunity and I welcome them.

This year, I’m so willing to rock this healing, learning journey! I’ve been amazed that I could accomplish the amount of healing that I’ve had so far and I’m going for TOTAL healing. I’m focusing on waking up. All of the ways that don’t serve me are being brought to the light for healing.  When it feels like things are falling apart – Spirit is working for me.  I know that now!

We have so much support from the invisible. Please, let’s accept it. Let’s allow the healing to happen and not get in the way of it anymore.

Let’s truly allow ourselves to be learners, without judgment. Harvesting the wisdom that we learn from making tactical errors. When we seem to fall off track, we get back on track by having compassion for ourselves.

Compassion is Love and Love is our healer because Love is our true identity. When we choose loving choices we are choosing to align with Truth and that is liberating!

This is the year of New Beginnings.  Our freedom from pain is at hand!

This is the year of our reveling in the light! I claim it and I allow it! And so it is!

Are you ready to rock this year of New Beginnings? Let’s do it together!

Self-Assurance

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

Many think they are suffering from low self-esteem.  They seek to gain Self-confidence in order to feel better about themselves. They must ask: What is the “self” that I am seeking to place confidence in?

Low self-esteem is really when we identify with the false self.  The ego.  We’re going for placing our trust and confidence in the Higher Holy Spirit Self – our true Self.  Herein lies our access to a miraculous life.

Thich Nhat Hanh wrote a beautiful book that is one of my all time favorites: Peace Is Every Step. In there he writes, “The mind of love brings peace, joy, and happiness to ourselves and others. If love is in our heart, every thought, word, and deed can bring about a miracle.”

Let’s bring about a lot of miracles this year!

I’ve learned that the fastest path to true self-esteem and confidence has been to recognize that I AM One with the One. I AM part of that stream of Divine Love Intelligence that is already perfect, whole and complete. That is the origin of my Self-esteem and confidence.

The nature of the lack of Self-confidence comes from choosing to energize thoughts of separation from the Oneness. It comes from placing our confidence in the ego, the small, selfish separate self.

Separation thoughts are the thoughts of judgment, whether they are directed towards myself or others. Any lack of feeling good about myself came from being unwilling to place my trust in the Divine. If you do not trust God you will never feel good about yourself. If you do not Love your Higher Holy Spirit Self and seek to know it AS yourself, you will never know your true identity and you will always suffer from lack of self-esteem. That pain will never end.

True Self-confidence and self-esteem cannot come from the size of our paycheck, the beauty of our features, or anything else in this world. When we place our trust and confidence in God, in our God Self, then we can remember our true identity. Placing your trust in the Divine rather than your little self, you discover that you of yourself can do nothing worth doing. ALL self-worth comes from discovering this.

When you remember your Divinity and the Divinity of all life then you can see and know and feel that ALL is worthy. When you are willing to know that ALL are worthy then you will absolutely know that are worthy too.

I AM willing to know that all are worthy. I place my trust in the Divine and remember that I AM worthy of God’s Love.

Are you willing to do something different to have your best year ever? Let’s do it together!

ACT NOW! One of the things that changed for me was I just couldn’t stay stuck anymore.  It was too uncomfortable.  I had to be willing to go for it.  How about you?  Are you willing to REALLY go for it this year?

Why Bother?

Monday, January 8th, 2018

Over the years, I’ve found that many people are so convinced that things won’t work for them that they don’t even try. In fact, I find it quite interesting that, year after year, when I ask the good folks who enroll in my year-long Masterful Living Course how they felt at the beginning of the year, they tell me that they were convinced that it wouldn’t work for them. They’re so surprised when it does work for them. It’s a huge relief to begin to feel like they can have true success.

The “why bother” factor is intense. It can feel like a formidable obstacle. It’s why one of the things I focus on in Masterful Living is helping people to build the momentum to move through that obstacle in the mind.

Gaining motivation does require willingness. It can be really challenging to have willingness when you also have the mindset of “why bother when it never works for me.”

Sometimes people, sub-consciously, set out to prove that it will never work for them. They’d like permission to give up. They’d like to feel that they’re so wrong and so bad that it cannot work for them. And, of course, if you believe it, you’re going to see it, whether it’s there or not.

This is why making a shift takes courage. It takes courage to be willing to invest in gaining enough momentum to bust through the old thinking of “why bother.” To the one who has no faith, “why bother” is a safe bet. There’s nothing to lose – or so it seems.

I understand.
I tried so many things and felt like a failure SO many times.

However, I can honestly say that when I had a true willingness, then I began to feel and see things change in my life. I decided to really PROVE God in my life and then I began to build momentum.

One of the things that changed for me was I just couldn’t stay stuck anymore. It was too uncomfortable. I had to be willing to go for it. How about you?

Are you willing to REALLY go for it this year?

When Compassion is Dysfunctional

Friday, January 5th, 2018

Yesterday, in my class, Self-Love: 6 Simple Steps for Self-Healing, I shared about how we can become quite dysfunctional in our expressions of compassion and not even realize it.  I have found that almost every spiritual student I know can recognize this is a challenge that we have.

When I say dysfunctional compassion I’m talking about doing what looks like extending Love, but you’re actually trying to get something from someone by manipulating them.  Some of the ways that we can be dysfunctionally compassionate:

  • making excuses for someone in a way that enables them to keep repeating the behavior
  • helping people when they haven’t asked for it in order to garner favor or get something including self-validation
  • repeatedly being compassionate with someone who is mis-treating you, and pretending that they can’t do any better

There are many more.  Being dysfunctional in these ways isn’t actually compassion.  Compassion is deeply healing and these dysfunctional expressions actually keep the wounding going.

These expressions of dysfunctional compassion can actually seem to be addictive when we seem to be validated by them.  When people have a low self-esteem then these expressions can seem to be quite uplifting and can be interpreted as being loving when they’re actually not.

True compassion is an expression of Love, it’s the light dawning in our awareness.  Dysfunctional compassion perpetuates the darkness.  It takes courage to look at these things and choose Love!

Take your own temperature and begin to recognize when things feel off and when you’re giving to get something in return.  Recognizing these patterns will be profoundly healing!  More Love will flow in your life!

Self-Terrorism or Self-Love

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018

One of my favorite quotes from A Course in Miracles is “You may still complain about fear, but you nevertheless persist in making yourself fearful.” So clear, and so spot on.

As much as we might prefer to blame others for how we feel, it’s never going to be true. When we can take responsibility for the thoughts that we think we’ve made a huge step in the direction of spiritual maturity. For me, one of the most powerful realizations I’ve had on this path of unfolding love is that my willingness to be responsible for what I choose to think is actually going to be a benefit to me.

We cause ourselves to worry through choosing to imagine things we don’t wish to have happen. It’s like self-terrorism. It’s an act of Love that becomes a choice for healing when we are willing to move away from the thoughts that terrify us.

Some people enjoy watching horror movies. Some people create their own in their mind. I have come to understand it. We feel very alive when we’re worried, when we make all of our perceptions and projections so real.

I’ve learned that being responsible for what I choose to entertain in my awareness is an act of self-love. It’s pretty normal for us all to make mis-takes and choose fearful, terrorizing thoughts. I used to do it all day long. I still make mis-takes. I make them every day and I also learn from them every day.

I used to be terrified to make mis-takes, but since I’ve learned to be loving with myself I’m not afraid to make mis-takes anymore.

Some mis-takes are missed opportunities.
Some are tactical errors.
Some are oversights.

I can forgive myself for all of them as an act of Self-Love.
Forgiveness is releasing the judgment I’ve held against myself for my choices in the past – even if it’s the near past.

No matter what, I’m always learning – and I’m always learning to forgive. Forgiveness is an act of Love and being able to forgive easily makes me a more loving person. Wonderful!

Begin Again

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018

Yesterday in my New Year’s Reboot class I showed a video that’s pretty much my all-time favorite inspirational video.  I just love it and I cry every single time I watch it!  Without fail!  I love the video because it is a demonstration of the power of Love and particularly Self-Love to redeem us from the wasteland of our misguided thinking.

As a writer, I know that there are a number of different kinds of stories and journeys that we can take in our life.  There are many archetypes that we can embody and many that we can encounter as companions on our journey.

My favorite story is the story of redemption.  I’ve come to see that humanity itself is on a trajectory of redemption.  We’re righting the wrongs in our mind and returning to the Beginning.  In A Course in Miracles, it talks about returning to the Beginning with a capital B and that’s what I’m going to share about in my radio show today!

BTW, if you’d like ANY help at all with accessing the podcast of my radio show, getting it on your phone, computer or tablet, we can help you!  Just email us at admin@jenniferhadley.com – we’d love to help!

2018

Monday, January 1st, 2018

Let 2018 be the year that you are ALL IN for Love!  Making the decision to be ALL IN may feel daunting, impossible and too challenging, but we can shift that perspective so that we can actually choose to go for it.

For me, being ALL IN means that I’m truly doing the best I can in each moment to choose Love.  Sometimes I fall short, but then I have the opportunity to start all over again, and I begin by choosing not to judge myself for having been less than loving only a moment ago.

Being ALL IN doesn’t mean getting it “perfect” in each moment, it means holding the intention to be loving and choosing Love as much as possible.  I used to think that it would be so hard, but it’s actually far easier than having a lot of worry, doubt and fear.

It took me quite a while to recognize that every time I choose to judge and to attack, no matter how subtle it might seem, I will feel that attack thought boomerang back to me in the form of my own self-doubt and fear.

The less judgment I have the more peaceful I am.

The more I choose to give up my attachments to my judgments, my beliefs, and the need to be right, the less fear and worry I experience and the more Joy I feel.

Now, I’m trying to remember why I was so dang interested in being right – it didn’t make me happy.  Being loving is what makes me happy.

2018 is the year that I’m choosing to double down on my commitment to be ALL IN for Love. Care to join me?  Let’s go for it!

TODAY:  Monday, January 1st, new year’s day, I offer my New Year’s Reboot class – this year it will be an epic 3 hour class!  Click here to register and get more details now!

Learning

Sunday, December 31st, 2017

This year more than ever, I am willing to be grateful for what I’ve learned.  I’ve learned quite a lot. I’m always learning.  I experience a combination of discovering truth that i already knew, but had forgotten, mixed with discovering and learning through my experiences.

I’ve gone so many years without taking stock and without really considering how much I’ve learned from my challenges. I’ve gone year after year, experiencing challenges, but barely noticing what I’ve learned through those experiences.

Challenges can be so intense, why not pause to really appreciate what they’re for?

Every difficulty, every experience and every occurrence in our lives is for our learning – and for the opportunity to be truly helpful to ourselves and others. ACIM tells us everything in our life is “gently planned by one whose only purpose is our good.”

When we choose to be grateful and to open our mind and our hearts to the experiences there are to learn and grow it’s a miracle.  When we accept the miracle, then we don’t have to repeat the challenge.  When we hold onto resentment, regret, blame, hurt and other thoughts that block the flow of Love, we block the miracles too.

A Course in Miracles reminds us that “the miracle substitutes for learning that might have taken thousands of years.”  In other words, one moment of extending Love, having a realization of the Truth, will actually eliminate thousands of years of learning through experience.  As ACIM tells us all the time, its purpose is to save time we’d otherwise spend in suffering.

I’ve learned that if I don’t accept things as they are, then I cannot harvest the learning from my experiences and I have to continue to repeat them.  Perhaps I’ve spent thousands of years repeating the same lessons because I was judging that everything was bad and wrong instead of realizing the opportunities to extend Love and have compassion.

That was then and this is now.

In this now, I choose Love.  I choose to live a miraculous life and to harvest the learning from my experiences.  And I choose to contribute to the end of all suffering.  This gives my life purpose and meaning.

I feel that 2018 will have a LOT for me to learn and to be grateful for and I’m excited for every bit of it.  I’m glad we’ll be sharing this year together!

TOMORROW:  On Monday, January 1st, new year’s day, I offer my New Year’s Reboot class – this year it will be an epic 3 hour class!  Click here to register and get more details now!

Living By Faith

Saturday, December 30th, 2017

I am so excited for this new year.  I feel so much is possible for us.  Right now, I’m at my New Year’s Reboot retreat at Unity Village in Missouri, and we’re immersed in the healing we’re calling forth.  For me, it’s thrilling.

This is how I choose to invest my life – in precious days of healing, expansion, clarity and more of the all-good unfolding in palpable ways.  There’s so much transformation that’s available to us if we’re willing to call it forth.  Our willingness is all that’s required, and still many people forget to actively be willing.

Without a willingness to surrender our opinions, there’s not much healing that can happen.  We have to be willing to receive it, to allow it, and to stand in spiritual anticipation of that which we desire.

Doubt will push our answered prayers away.  Faith will pull them closer.  This I know.

I encourage you to look for the doubt and give it to Spirit so we can live by faith.

If you don’t already have a strong faith – I encourage you to consider making faith a top priority in the coming year – you’ll be rewarded so very richly!

Gifts

Friday, December 29th, 2017

If we don’t use our gifts and talents you might not actually lose them – an ultimate act of self-sabotage. If we don’t use our gifts and talents because you’re waiting for something special to line up in the world, then you’ll be missing extraordinary opportunities to be an authentic, inspiring and healing presence in the world. Why wait? Act now and you can be a healing presence!

We all have an interesting and unique relationship to our possessions, including our gifts and talents. In THE PATHWAY OF ROSES, Christian D. Larson wrote, “Every individual is entitled to all the riches of the spiritual kingdom, and in addition, to the possession of as many things … as he can possibly appreciate and use in the enrichment of all the realms of his own entire existence. But before he can secure all these things, he must cause his personal nature and his spiritual nature to live together as one … the first essential is to make the best use possible of everything that we may possess now.

Today let’s be willing to use what we have. So many people want more, but they don’t appreciate and make use of what they have. Be willing to look at yourself from a Divine perspective. Would you be willing to give to someone more riches and rewards if they didn’t appreciate and make use of the ones they had? Wouldn’t that be a waste?

Do you have the ability to be kind? Do you have the ability to forgive? Are you a good listener? Do you have an opportunity to be generous or helpful? Go for it! Use the opportunities you have to extend Love and your life will be so much more loving! Go for it!

Instead of waiting for things to line up in the world, we align with the divine up with Spirit and then begin. Boldness has genius in it!

Problem Remover

Thursday, December 28th, 2017

Awakened Spiritual Masters stop making mistakes and ALWAYS express in perfect alignment with Love. We’re all headed in the direction of awakening and in Masterful Living, this is what we’re going for – we’re actively choosing to be more aligned with our True Nature rather than the ego.

It might seem hard to believe, but ALL PROBLEMS come from *thinking unloving thoughts, feeling unloving and choosing unloving choices.  And the good news is, we can shift it.

You can shift the habit of making unloving choices and profoundly change your life. That’s the focus of our work in my year-long Masterful Living Course and people who practice this have results that they describe as: amazing, miraculous, and unbelievable.

What’s more, with even a modest amount of practice people change their lives to the degree that they ABSOLUTELY KNOW that there’s no going back to the level of suffering and misery they used to experience.

AND they now know that SO MUCH MORE is possible for them.

The more they practice, the more clear they are that they ARE doing it. It goes from being something they might do, or will do, to something they’re actively doing and enjoying doing. That’s SO powerful!

You see, there’s an internal switch that flips, where we go from trying to get something to make us happy to realizing that only being aligned with Spirit will bring lasting happiness.

We all have that switch.
How do I flip the switch?

The switch flips when DECIDE to PRACTICE being loving more often than being judgmental, unkind, critical, ashamed, jealous, etc. It requires willingness to pay attention and to replace habits that bring upset and unhappiness with habits that bring Peace and Happiness.

Spiritual Qualities are the very nature of the Divine. Because we’re one with Spirit, these Spiritual Qualities are our True Nature. A helpful and speedy way to eliminate the negative patterns of shame, blame, regret, resentment, jealousy, hurt, anger, fear, worry, guilt, lack, limitation and confusion, is to replace them with new habits of trust, patience, generosity, faith, forgiveness, understanding, compassion, love, gentleness, and kindness.

That’s something that takes most of us time. We don’t all have the benefit of having a night with the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future like Mr. Scrooge. However, in our mind, we’re recycling those experience all the time until we clear them. So, we can continue to recycle the same beliefs and thoughts, the same upsets and worries, or we can start clearing them.

Scrooge’s life changed because he replaced his habits of being unloving with habits of kindness, compassion, generosity, patience and inspiration. We can all do that. We don’t have to wait until we’re completely miserable.

You can wake up on Christmas morning every day and start again.

Flipping that switch is what my year-long Masterful Living Course is about. Every year, people who do even a modest amount of spiritual practice are able to prove to themselves how much benefit even a little bit of willingness consistently cultivated can bring. Year after year people tell me they are AMAZED at their results. That’s what they tell me.

As I said yesterday:
In this world, we don’t get what we want.
We get what we think about.
What we think about, we bring about –
if only in your feelings and emotions!

Being upset on a daily basis is exhausting!  I know because I’ve done the research!  I’ve exhausted myself by being upset much of the time.

If you worry about something, you might not bring it into form, but you will experience it repeatedly in your mind and that’s such an energy drain. You cannot worry about things and be receptive to the Good of God at the same time – you have to choose one or the other. For some people this habit is one that takes focus to replace with one of Trust and Faith. That’s why my invitation is to give yourself a year to really cultivate the practice and not set resolutions you fail at within a week!

What I know is that even the most hopeless and helpless person can be willing to be willing to change their mind and place their attention elsewhere, and that can bring amazing, unbelievable results. I’ve seen it, year after year.

When you flip that switch – the years the locusts have eaten are given back to you, and that is one of the best feelings in the world!  It’s a TRUE problem solver.

Are you willing to be willing?

No matter what your goals for your healing and expansion are next year – I feel you’ll be inspired by what the folks who are doing the work share in my free Masterful Living preview class: Unblock the Flow of Your Time, Energy & Money –  Click now to register and get the immediate download. My year-long Masterful Living Course is an entire year of spiritual growth and healing. It’s a amazing what you can accomplish in just 1 year – if you’re willing!

Unchanging

Wednesday, December 27th, 2017

Yesterday, in my radio show entitled “You’ve Got the Power,” I was sharing about some of the simple practices that have helped me so much.  I feel so grateful that Spirit’s Love and care for me is constantly showing itself in my awareness.

For me, one of the things I am most grateful for is that God is unchanging. Constancy is a spiritual quality. Knowing this helps me to *identify opinions and judgments which are always changing. Why build our home on the sinking sands of ever-changing opinions when we can build it on the solid rock of putting God first in our lives.

People love that saying “times change” and at the crux of it, opinions are what change. We have new preferences, new opinions, new outlooks. And yet the spiritual nature of the universe is unchanging. Love is all there is and we’re waking up to remember that simple truth.

If you’re REALLY interested in the Truth that sets you free, then you must relinquish the opinions and judgments. That’s something I’ve learned. How to identify the opinions? They change. God doesn’t change. Love doesn’t change. Love isn’t something that we fall in and out of. It is, as Shakespeare so beautifully wrote “an ever-fixed mark that looks on tempests and is never shaken.”

I’ve learned from all of my errors – one way or another, and so now, I can give thanks for each error and be grateful for the learning.  That’s quite a shift!  I’ve learned that I prefer to learn from choosing Love and from the joy of living with fewer and fewer opinions.

Love lasts. Love is real and tangible and will outlast every opinion.

If it changes, it isn’t Love.
How wonderful to know this simple fact.
Why become attached to things that change?
Let’s release all attachments and become steadfast for Love which is ever-constant.

This is what my classes are about – making the most valuable shifts that change the trajectory of our life – that open up the possibilities for more Peace, more Love and more Joy. Spirit’s unchanging goodness is what we’re allowing and accepting.

I feel that as we prepare for this new year of personal healing that’s unfolding for all of us, self-love and self-healing are going to pull our entire focus and I welcome them. Love is our healer. I look forward to a year focused on Love! Victory is at hand!  I feel it and rejoice to stand in the Light of truth!

You’ve Got the Power!

Tuesday, December 26th, 2017

A Course in Miracles tells us that we have the power to transform our belief system and to remember our true nature is perfect, miraculous, unbounded, transcendent L-O-V-E.

Even if we accept this as the truth, we may be daunted by the idea of using our mind in this way.  More than ever, I’m aware that this is where Spirit is leading me.  I feel so compelled to *share with others what I’m discovering about speeding up the transforming renewal of our minds.  It’s exciting!

As we prepare to start the new year in just 6 days (WOW!), I’m absolutely thrilled by what I feel is coming forth for us.

While many I speak with have spent a lot of this year feeling angry, bitter, afraid, and helpless because of what they see happening in the world, I know that we can move from that place into the place of Power very quickly.

I’ve learned that no matter how beaten down a person feels, and no matter how lost or hopeless their life seems, they can make a turn to a happy life and grateful heart so much faster than we would even imagine.  That’s the miracle of Love active in us.  We are ALL so blessed.

It does require willingness.  A great deal of willingness and a genuine desire to move out of the suffering will bring AMAZING results.

I’m so grateful for my own willingness.
I encourage you to give thanks, every day, for whatever amount of willingness you have.

Spirit takes our willingness and amplifies it, turning into rocket fuel.

I Love God and I am so grateful to be able to PROVE Spirit works each and every day.

Together, let’s prepare for the most transformative year EVER!  It’s ON!

Jesus

Monday, December 25th, 2017

I’m in Maine, celebrating Christmas with my family at our home on Deer Isle.  We enjoy being together so much.  It’s a real treat to do even the simplest things like go for a walk, decorate the tree, and tell stories.  In the simple things we can feel our Love for each other.

On December 25th, Christmas Day, we celebrate the birth of Jesus, the great avatar who incarnated on earth to demonstrate our Christ nature.  Millions of people around the world celebrate the birth of this humble man who travelled the earth blessing everyone he ever came in contact with.  He is the great example.

I am so grateful for the life and teachings of Jesus.  I wasn’t raised in any religion, and I’ve never considered myself a Christian, but I Love the teachings of Jesus and consider him my teacher.

Did you know that Gandhi was greatly influenced by Jesus’ sermon on the mount?

On this day, in addition to everything else we’re grateful for, let’s truly be grateful for the master teacher who taught us so much and continues to teach us.

Here are some of Jesus’ teachings for us from A Course in Miracles:
The sign of Christmas is a star, a light in darkness.  See it not outside yourself, but shining in the Heaven within, and accept it as the sign the time of Christ has come.  He comes demanding nothing.  No sacrifice of any kind, of anyone, is asked by Him.  In His Presence the whole idea of sacrifice loses all meaning.  T-15.XI.2.

This Christmas give the Holy Spirit everything that would hurt you.  Let yourself be healed completely that you may join with Him in healing, and let us celebrate our release together by releasing everyone with us.  T-15.XI.3.

Let us follow Jesus’ invitation and see the Christ in ourselves.  Let us give the Holy Spirit everything that would hurt us.

Let’s open ourselves completely to the awareness of the Christ within – and let’s do it today, as our birthday present to Jesus.

As I celebrate the Love that we share with my family, I hold you in my heart and I give thanks for our connection.  Our prayer partnership is precious to me and I am grateful that we have the opportunity to pray together every day.

May you always feel blessed and know that you are a blessing to me!

Are you SO ready to have a new experience in the new year? We’re doing the deep transformation and the healing is happening in our lives! If you’d like to join me in my year-long Masterful Living Course 2018, then please click here to learn more now.

Sacrifice

Friday, December 22nd, 2017

It’s insane, but sometimes the idea of making a sacrifice becomes so appealing.  We think it will somehow make up for our selfishness.  We believe it will compensate for our insanity and make us more holy.  At this busy time of year, we can actually get caught up in the idea that we need to sacrifice for others in order to be loved.  Our ego deludes us into thinking we’re giving something up in order for others to be happy.  Crazy!

There is no sacrifice.  We make *choices because it’s what we’d like to do.  We make choices because it’s what will give us the very best feeling about ourselves – not because we’re making some sacrifice.  Sacrifice is an illusion.

There’s absolutely ZERO value in perpetuating ideas of sacrifice.  The truth is, we really only do what we wish to do.  Even if we’re working so hard to put our kids through school or to take care of our loved ones who are ill, we’re still making the choice that makes us the happiest.

If we perpetuate the belief in sacrifice we’re only adding to the world’s confusion.  Let’s get real today.

Truth is it’s a great gift to be of service – but only when we do it without sacrifice and completely with Love.  Then, it’s the gift we give ourselves.

Look into your belief system, and see if you can identify your thoughts about sacrifice.  Do you, perhaps, like the idea that you could make a sacrifice or BE a sacrifice and that would compensate for your sins?

What if, instead of compensating for your sins, you decide to just release all your belief in sin and be sinless.  Would you still need to make a sacrifice?

I am done with sacrifice.  I prefer being of service with JOY!  Are you with me?  Let’s ride this way of Joy and put an end to Sacrifice!

Would you like a spiritual mentor who walks right beside you? Are you SO ready to have a new experience in the new year? We’re doing the deep work and the healing is revealing itself in our lives!

Love Lights Our Way!

Wednesday, December 20th, 2017

This week in Masterful Living we’ve been harvesting the benefits of our spiritual practice this year and noticing how much our loved ones have changed simply because we decided to stop judging them and start really loving and supporting them.

There are only two choices in each moment: Oneness or separation. If you aspire to make the world a better place, choose Oneness.

We train ourselves to looking for the loving choice.

In order to choose Oneness consistently, you can train yourself to let go of cherishing the thoughts of lack and attack. Align with thoughts of Love, letting go of all judgments and learn to trust the Divine. It’s a way of living that is deeply transformative.

It can be so challenging.

When you have proven yourself to be untrustworthy over and over and OVER again, how do you learn to trust God?  One choice at a time.

When it seems like God doesn’t deliver the goods, and God isn’t the perfect delivery service of your happiness, no matter how much you beg and suffer, you may be so angry and resentful that you refuse to trust – in order to punish God for being such a withholding God. Been there. Done that. Ugh.

There’s hardly a one of us that hasn’t had these thoughts about God. We make stuff up and believe it to be true and then operate as though the lie is the truth.

Enough of that madness!
I choose my healing!

The greatest gift you can give to yourself is to be willing to practice choosing Love and Unity instead of attack and separation. Be willing to have a new experience. Be willing to give yourself a gift this coming year.

Each year in my year-long Masterful Living Course people demonstrate how much benefit a little bit of willingness consistently cultivated can bring. Year after year people tell me they are AMAZED at their results. That’s what they tell me.

They are amazed –
at how much their life and their feeling about themselves can change in just one year.
It’s miraculous. It’s not magical – they do the work to get the results.

They take one step at a time.

I know this, when it comes to spiritual practice, If we’re successful by even a little – there’ll be more light in our lives and everyone else’s. Your vibration will be lifted and you’ll begin to silently broadcast the message: “it can be done and I AM doing it.”

There is that within you which knows how to do this.

There’s no such thing as blind faith. To live in trust is to SEE by Faith. Faith lights the way and the path is known and firm, even when it’s narrow. Walk the talk today and you will truly see.

I live by grace. I walk in faith. Love lights my way. I choose my healing.

Decisions

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

I’m choosing active awakening and the Holy Spirit’s Rules for Decision from A Course in Miracles are helping me.

In A Course in Miracles, we’re told that we can create a new habit that will lead us to living the life we desire.  What we know is that we can choose to be led by Spirit or we can choose to go it on our own.  These are decisions that we make.  We make the decisions that bring heaven or hell into our experience.

“Decisions are continuous. 2 You do not always know when you are making them.  But with a little practice with the ones you recognize, a set begins to form which sees you through the rest.  It is not wise to let yourself become preoccupied with every step you take.  The proper set, adopted consciously each time you wake, will put you well ahead.”  T-30.I.1.

One thing that’s helped me in my choosing my ascension experience is to consistently affirm:

Despite any appearance, all is well.  God is progressive and so am I.  I am rising in Love and releasing all patterns of the past.  Today is my divine opportunity for extraordinary healing and I choose to accept it.  I AM the unprecedented Love of God and that’s all I need to know.

I make the decision that, despite any and ALL appearances, ALL IS WELL.

We can become so quickly mired when we give into making appearances be real, permanent, devastating or wrong.  Any appearance that bothers us is an opportunity for healing.

We’ve already each missed so many opportunities for healing.  Let’s not miss anymore.

As we go through the holidays and plan to make the most of our new year, let’s practice, each day, each moment, to not take things personally, to stop being offended, to cultivate patience, Love and compassion.

And, so importantly, let’s really truly listen to our heart, to each other and to Spirit.  Let’s become the great active and compassionate listeners that we’re designed to be.

I have to say, too, that this week’s Unblock the Flow of Your Time, Energy & Money class was such perfect timing. I LOVED that class. It felt so much like I was sharing really helpful tips at the right time. It’s free – so go grab it now! And please share with friends!

Choosing Heaven Today

Monday, December 18th, 2017

During stressful times, and during holiday times, old patterns come up for healing. And don’t we know it!! All through the holidays we get to choose heaven or hell with each choice we make. If you find the holidays difficult, if you struggle with old family patterns, if you’re feeling you’d like to really have a breakthrough then you might find my recent Relationship Healing & Harmony free class helpful.

When there are healing opportunities available to us and we *don’t choose them, instead repeating the past, we begin to feel discouraged and downtrodden, but we may not know why.

When our Spirit is working so intently to support us in having the breakthroughs we desire, and we choose to ignore them or let them pass us by, it eats away at our self-esteem.  Even if we don’t even consciously know it.

Extending Love is healing.
Reading books is not.

Not that reading books is bad – not at all – but it’s not enough.

A Course in Miracles is crystal clear about how we bring on our healing breakthrough to live a happy and harmonious life. Still, many people study ACIM and other spiritual teachings without actually applying the teachings and so they don’t receive the healing benefits.

Information isn’t healing.  Spiritual practice is healing.

Let’s all make the most of the holiday healing that is available to us! Enough with hell! Let’s choose heaven today!

Consider joining me – we start in 14 days!  Click here to learn more:  Masterful Living 2018.

I have two free Masterful Living Preview classes:

Relationship Healing and Harmony

and

Unblock the Flow of Your Time, Energy & Money

Register now, and get the downloads now.  It’s also an opportunity for me to discover some of what I offer in my year-long Masterful Living Course which starts on January 1st.

Prosperity & Love

Friday, December 15th, 2017

One of the patterns that many people have is a lot like a see-saw or a pendulum. For instance, let’s say you have an experience with a loved one where they disappoint you. The first thought you might have is: “they’re bad, wrong, out of integrity, unloving, inexcusable” or some such thought. Then, the next thought we have is the boomerang coming back and we think “I must be bad, wrong, unworthy, unlovable, inappropriate.”

When there’s an attack thought then there’s a lack thought and they bounce back and forth until we have a change of mind. When we change our mind, we interrupt the pattern and we open ourselves to the flow of Love and Prosperity

The belief in lack actually proceeds the attack thought, but sometimes we notice the attack thought first and then the lack thought afterwards. We each have our own unique way of experiencing to this particularly pervasive pattern of dysfunction and suffering.

It doesn’t matter which thought, lack or attack, comes first.
If we believe in lack, then we’ll feel attacked.
We’ll feel unworthy.
If we feel attacked then we’re justified in attacking back.
If we attack others then we feel guilty and ashamed. We feel a lack of Love.
And so it goes: the hamster wheel of misery.

What matters is HOW TO GET OFF the hamster wheel.
We have the power to get off that wheel of misery.
Willingness to listen to the Divine Guidance is the key to getting off the wheel of misery and suffering. It makes our healing SO MUCH faster. It’s unbelievable and miraculous how much healing we can have when we’re willing!

Interrupting the patterns again and again, rather than just going along with them, is how we train ourselves to have a new experience rather than repeat the same thing again and again.

You can say to yourself:

I’m not interested in that old pattern anymore!
That’s not my way anymore. I’m done with that old way of lack and attack!
I’m interested in Love, Prosperity, Wholeness, Freedom and living in abundance!

We replace the old thought with the new thought and we’re on our way to a new experience of Love and Prosperity!  Which is exactly what I was talking about in my free class Unblock the Flow of Your Time, Energy & Money   It’s really about letting go of the patterns of lack and limitation.  It’s also an opportunity for me to share some of what I offer in my year-long Masterful Living Course which starts on January 1st.  Register now, come join me live and ask me your questions!

It’s easier than you think to change everything in your life, if you’re willing.  Consider joining me – we start in 2 weeks!  Click here to learn more:  Masterful Living 2018.
