God’s Teachers

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

When people ask me where to begin with A Course in Miracles, I suggest folks begin with the Manual for Teachers and also Gary Renard’s beautiful book, Disappearance of the Universe.

More and more I find myself connecting with people who feel a calling to be one of God’s Teachers and it’s a beautiful thing!  It’s also a challenging thing.

Declaring yourself to be a Teacher of God, a spiritual counselor, a minister, a healer or any of these professions will bring up lots of your STUFF.  That’s okay!  Let it come up for healing so we can get it up and out and GONE!

Let’s enter the stillness and answer the call of Spirit with our whole heart!  It takes courage and so we go together.  When we are willing, we discover the fullness of Love has already paved the way.

This week on my radio show I’m going to share some things I’ve learned about having the courage to answer the call to be a Teacher of God.  Check it out!

Accepting Divine Assistance

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

I’m one of those people that believes that spiders and other insects are to be captured and released back to the wild.  When I find a spider in the house, I put a cup over it and then capture it and put it outside.

Sometimes, it can be tricky to capture an insect.  They can be fast and evasive.  Yesterday, there was a rather large spider in the living room and it didn’t wish to be caught, even though, it was ready to get outside again.  Rather than struggle with it, I asked the angels for help.  Before you know it, the spider presented itself again and was easy enough to catch and release.  Thank you, Angels!

One of the most common causes of difficulty in our lives is that folks struggle with going at it alone.  So often, people don’t believe there is Divine Assistance so they’re not open to receiving any and then they get their wish – to do it themselves.

I’ve realized there’s no benefit to doing it themselves.  None at all.  Suffering isn’t beneficial in anyway whatsoever.  Struggling on your own is, in fact, wasteful.  All of heaven will help us when we’re willing to choose Love and to be of service to the Light.

When we think we’re on our own, then life seems to be against us.  When we’re willing to recognize that we’ve got God and the angels to support us, then life is much easier.  

We do have to be willing to accept Divine Assistance in order to experience it.  Once we get the hang of it, life improves considerably!

Are you going at it alone?  Would you ask the angels to help you without telling them how to help you?

Please share your experiences and let me know your experiences of asking for assistance and receiving it.  

One thing to note is that some folks are attached to the idea that they are so unworthy that God has abandoned them and they’ll only allow more of that experience of feeling left out.  If you feel that’s your story, then please, give the story and all your belief in it to Spirit for healing.  Invite the angels to show you that you are loved and supported and they surely will.  Then, your challenge is to be receptive.

Let’s open to receive Divine Assistance now. We’re entitled to miracles and now is the time to experience them!

Joyful

Sunday, October 22nd, 2017

One of the many things we talked about at in my Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive that just finished yesterday is that people often will think that other people’s energy affects them negatively.  It’s “normal” for people to complain about the complainers in their life.

Many spiritual students develop a temporary aversion to people who complain and criticize.  Spiritual students are working so hard to have positive thoughts that they don’t like being around people who are actively negative.  The belief is that people who are complaining and critical will bring us down with their negative energy.  I used to believe that, too.

I discovered, through my own basic experience, that the thing that brings my energy down is when I judge other people.  When I judge the judger, then I am joining them in their lower vibration of complaining, but I don’t have to.

It’s our free will choice to let other people bother us.  When we develop the ability of taking responsibility for our feelings, then we realize that no one can bring us down unless we allow it.

Our natural state is Joy.  Joy is a spiritual quality that is the very nature of our being.  Joy is the essence of who we are.  Joy is unconditional, not circumstantial.  When we’re not joyful, it’s because of how we’re thinking and believing, not because of what the circumstances are.

It’s part of our moment-by-moment spiritual practice that helps us to take responsibility for how we feel and instead of blaming others, or even circumstances, for how we feel, that we instead begin to realize that we have a choice.  We can choose Peace.  We can choose Joy.

When we don’t feel Joy-full, then we can Partner UP and call upon Spirit to show us the way to Joy.  It will always include letting go of judgments and choosing to be in the flow of Love.

I am so grateful I realized that i could let my judgments go and get back in the flow!

Just Say Yes!

Saturday, October 21st, 2017

Today is the last day of our Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive and I am so grateful that I said yes to following my guidance.  I am so grateful that even though, when I first decided to start offering counseling training, I didn’t know how it would unfold, I did it anyway because I felt guided.

It used to be that following my guidance took a lot of courage, because I had to trust that I could listen and follow well enough to not let anyone down.  Now, that’s not a concern anymore.

I’ve learned to trust that all will go well and my trust is now a faith and a knowing that all will go well even if it doesn’t go the way I thought it would go.  If it doesn’t go the way I thought it would go, it’s because our good is in a different direction than I initially thought, and that’s okay.

Sometimes, we would say, ‘no,’ if we knew where Spirit was leading us and so God gives us a bait and switch.  We think that we’re going to do something for one reason and then it turns out that we’ve been sent to do a totally different thing.  If we’re attached to our original plan then there’s a problem, but if we’re willing to go with the flow, we discover new expansion, miracles, and breakthroughs.

Saying, “Yes,” to Spirit takes courage when we don’t have faith.

Practicing saying, “Yes,” builds our trust and uncovers our faith.

With faith, all things are possible.

What have you been resisting because you don’t trust?

Would you be willing to say, “Yes,” now and let the trust appear?

We learn to say, “Yes,” and to allow and then Spirit shows us how.

Listening to people share over the last few days, and share how much they love the Spiritual Counseling Intensive and how much healing they’ve had and even that they wish they could stay longer and keep going, one week is not enough, that just fills my heart because it reaffirms the benefits of saying, “Yes,” even when you have no clue HOW it could ever unfold.

Spirit knows the way and we’ll find it when we’re truly willing!

Limitations

Friday, October 20th, 2017

As I write this, I’m blessed to be in the midst of offering one of my Spiritual Counseling Training Intensives.  It’s such a powerful healing when we’re finally willing and ready to recognize that the only limitations we have are the ones that we agree to.

The only grievances we have are the ones that we agree to.

The only way someone can take advantage of us is if we agree to it.

The only way we can feel limited is *if we agree to limitations.

When I first began to realize these things, it felt like a dead weight on top of me because I didn’t know HOW to release the limiting thoughts.

I was stopped by my belief that it couldn’t be done because I didn’t know how to do it.

I was stopped by my belief that I was on my own, and if I didn’t know how to do it, I had no resources and so I had to accept that it couldn’t be done.

Fortunately, I had that little bit of willingness that Jesus talks about in A Course in Miracles.  My little bit of willingness kept me praying.  My prayers to have a healing were answered, in part, by my realization that I could Partner UP.  I realized that limitations are really only in my thinking, not in my true reality.

I decided that it didn’t matter HOW the healing happened, I was calling forth a healing and I was accepting it.  I gave the heavy lifting of figuring out the “how” to the Higher Holy Spirit Self.  I knew I couldn’t see the solution as long as I was still thinking with the same thought system that created the “problem.”

My willingness to call forth and accept help from “above” was the thing that opened the door to my miraculous healing.  I’ve had SO MUCH miraculous healing since then and I’ve shared it with others who are having miraculous healing and that’s what inspires me every single day.

I am grateful that miraculous healing isn’t for special people.  Everyone is entitled to miracles.  Miracles are natural.  We don’t have to figure out how, we allow.  There are no REAL limitations.

I am calling forth a miracle for us every day.  Thank you for praying with me and calling forth a miracle today!

A Healing Choice

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

Simple practices bring tremendous healing, and much more quickly than we might imagine.  When I bring my attention fully into the present, into the now moment, then I can see that each and every moment contains a clear choice. The choice is always between Unity/Oneness/Love and separation. For a long time I wasn’t able to see the choice as clearly as I do now. This clarity has made a difference in my life.  As I keep my commitment to being mindful of the ever-present choice for Love, it’s possible for me to choose love more often. As I am mindful of the choices I make, I am also mindful of their outcomes.

Now that I am more mindful, if I choose fear, anger or some other form of suffering I can see that it was my choice. Right there in that moment of awareness is another opportunity to choose Love and forgive myself by releasing any judgment I might have about myself for not choosing Love a moment ago.  This is a living practice of Self-forgiveness.  It has been profoundly healing for me.  It’s helped me to realize all my mistakes can bring me great benefit when I practice Self-Love in the form of Self-forgiveness.

I witness that love has an intelligence all of its own. This makes every moment of my life a work of art.

In their book EMBRACING THE BELOVED: Relationship as a Path of Awakening, Stephen & Ondrea Levine write, “Those who suppress the ego instead of just letting it recede into the heart make the same merciless error in judgment as those who, attempting to cure serious illness, believe they must ‘filter out all negative thoughts’ in order to be healed … They do not recognize that what leaves the ‘negative residue’ is not the thought, no matter how dark or fearful, but the negative reaction (holding), as opposed to the healing response (letting go), to that moment. That a ‘positive’ thought grasped is less healing than a ‘negative’ one met with mercy.”

Today I make a deepen my commitment to be mindful as part of my daily spiritual practice. I meet any dark and fearful thoughts with mercy. In this way my daily practice of being aware of self-forgiveness and self-compassion opportunities is healing and I share the benefit with all beings because I am one with them. My choice is a healing choice!

Guilt

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

A Course in Miracles tells us that increasing a sense of guilt is what our special Love relationships are all about.  It tells us that our special Love relationships are relationships that are actually backwards.  Instead of unconditional Love there’s co-dependency, which is conditional Love.  This kind of relationship only increases our suffering because we become so attached to the other person validating us.

In the special Love relationship we are attracted to the person who affirms our false identity.  That’s not Love.  It’s a poor substitute.

In our special relationships we begin by being so glad and excited that someone is affirming our specialness, but we know that if someone’s not seeing our true identity they aren’t loving our true self, only the false self.  Deep down we know it’s a poor arrangement.

If we don’t show our true self how can someone ever really love us?

If we present a false self in our relationships – one that we think is more likable than our true self, and if we hide how we feel, so people don’t ever know what’s going on with us, won’t we actually be preventing others from loving us?

The shift happens when we love ourselves.

I was sharing about this in my radio show yesterday:  In the false, fake, special relationship, our upset is a display to manipulate others into feeling guilty for having upset us.  Is it Love if we’re manipulating someone to do what we’d like?

Do you wish to be in a relationship with someone who blames their upset on you and then tries to make you feel guilty for it?

The way out of this pain is to take responsibility for our upsets.  It helps to be able to be transparent about how we feel and to not blame anyone.

There’s such a great reward when we can let people Love us.  It’s one of the reasons why we love dogs so much.  We allow them to love us, and it makes them so happy!

When we allow others to love us there’s a healing that happens for everyone because Love is our healer!

Joining with others is part of why I love being a spiritual counselor and why I love training spiritual counselors and empowering them.  (Please consider working with one of the spiritual counselors I’m training – you can book a session on a donation basis – look here:  http://jenniferhadley.com/spiritual-counselors/)

Special Love Relationship

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

The “special” relationship offers the ego the promise of safe haven and relief from suffering; and yet, its chief delivery is the opportunity to learn through pain.  A Course in Miracles leads us out of the pain of the unholy relationship into the Heaven of the holy relationship.

What I’ve learned about relationship  has shown me that one holy relationship is worth a thousand special relationships.  What’s amazing and beautiful is that all relationships can be made holy.

We don’t know HOW it happens, our job is to call it forth and ALLOW it to happen.  We can know that the Higher Holy Spirit Self is in-charge of it.

The ego is endlessly tempted to manage it, but that doesn’t work and we know it.  Let’s allow our relationships to be made holy and rejoice in the healing that’s happening!

Feeling Our Freedom

Sunday, October 15th, 2017

It can seem as though our feelings will overwhelm us and that we could actually die from feeling our feelings when there’s a lot of hurt, anger, fear, and pain. And sometimes, people do seem to get stuck in a feeling.

An alternative to feeling our feelings is denial.  Another alternative is to deaden ourselves with self-medication.

Self-medication is for the purpose of helping us to avoid feeling our feelings. Self-medication is self-sabotage, which is for the purpose of slowing down our spiritual growth to a more manageable pace.

I can recall feeling sad and sorry for myself and keeping that going for a long time.

I can remember feeling angry and resentful and feeding that fire for a long time.

I’ve felt confused and frightened and struggled with that feeling for years.

Most of us have fallen into these traps of feelings – however, it’s not those feelings that put us in the black hole stuck in an unpleasant feeling – it’s our thoughts and beliefs.

First comes your belief.
Your beliefs magnetize into your awareness thoughts that are congruent with that belief.
When you start thinking those thoughts that are congruent with your belief, you’ll have a chance to really examine the belief and discover the pain and suffering it inevitably causes to believe it.

What’s the alternative?
Truth.
Truth is liberation from suffering.

When you don’t allow yourself to feel your feelings, you get stuck in the thoughts without getting enough insight and Clarity to move through it and see the lack of value in the thought.

Feel your feelings.
Discover what you’re actually thinking.
You’ll realize what it is you truly believe.
Trade it for the Truth.

Your Higher Holy Spirit Self knows the way out of suffering if you’re willing to follow. It requires giving up your. judgments, opinions, and habits of self-medicating. That is the cost of Freedom.

To have Freedom, we have to give up our suffering. Are you willing?

Who will we be if we suffered no more?  Do we need to suffer because we feel that it’s part of our identity?

How would we invest our precious energy if everything in our life felt good?

When we know the answer to these questions, we’re a lot closer to our Freedom!

Fortunately, when we’re willing, the means will appear.  When we’re willing to have courage to look within, the moment arrives.  Our feelings point the way to our awakening.  In truth, we’re so blessed.  Thank God we can learn to receive our blessings!

Perspective

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

I really like joining with other people and having what I call a Divine Dialogue.  Just this past weekend, I had the wonderful opportunity to be roommates with Regina Dawn-Akers.  We really enjoyed the opportunity to hangout and be together, and so we made the most of our time together.

I have conversations with so many people and, of course, in my classes and in my Sacred Circle.  When we can join together, it can often be SO helpful to get perspective.

I consistently find that many people who isolate and don’t have conversations with people who are practicing compassion and non-judgment, they often lose perspective.  One of the great opportunities we have in a dialogue is to get a new perspective.

Remember that A Course in Miracles tells us in Lesson 190 that “Pain is a wrong perspective.”  If you’re in pain, especially mentally and emotionally, it might be that you are viewing things from a wrong perspective.  In which case, being able to join with someone who has a higher perspective, more Clarity, less judgment, and more compassion.

Joining with others is part of why I love being a spiritual counselor, and why I love training spiritual counselors and empowering them.  (Please consider working with one of the spiritual counselors I’m training – you can book a session on a donation basis – look here:  http://jenniferhadley.com/spiritual-counselors/)

I rely upon my Prayer Partners to hold the high watch with me and to help me keep a loving perspective.  I am so grateful for all the people in my life who have a wholesome perspective and who help me to see correctly.  What a blessing!

TODAY is my Sacred Circle day!  This is my monthly membership program that gives you a weekly call of group spiritual counseling.  Join my Sacred Circle and you can ask me any question you would like on the phone, online, or in writing!  I love it!  We have an awesome group of people who are doing the deep work!  Try my Sacred Circle for a month and see!  4 spiritual counseling calls with me each month – ask me any question!  Join me live or get the download later.

Living A Legacy of Love

Monday, October 9th, 2017

Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mother Teresa were three of the most influential people in the 20th century. They were influential not simply for their eloquence and their ideas, but for their actions. Each of them left behind the example of the choices that they made in every day of their life.

The people we admire most choose love over fear. They chose faith over despair. They chose to demonstrate rather than just percolate. The example they set by their loving and courageous choices is what influences billions of people.

Journalist Jane Pauley has said, “Kids learn more from example than anything you say. I’m convinced they learn very early not to hear anything you say, but watch what you do.”

I know this: everyone I meet in my life, everyone, is watching my example whether they realize it or not. My family, my friends, and even those whom I have not noticed, all are influenced by my example. When I react with patience in a frustrating situation, people around me take notice. When I have no patience, they notice. Love and fear are always noticed.

Let’s decide to leave a legacy of loving choices.  Let’s lead by examples of compassion and willingness.  Let’s choose patience, kindness and generosity every opportunity we can!

Today I set a loving example and behave as the person I aspire to be. Today I set the example of a person who takes action in ways that are consistently loving.  In this way, I move the world in a direction of Peace and that makes a profound difference to us all.

I AM grateful that I can contribute in ways that are truly helpful.  Even my simple thoughts of gratitude are a benefit to all!

Faith and Trust

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

Peace in the world OUT THERE depends upon our choosing Peace in our heart right now. In order to succeed at choosing Peace we place our trust in the Divine. Trust is a demonstration of our willingness to put aside our painful past and create a new, loving experience right now, regardless of how it looks.

Trust in Love always leads us to faith in Spirit. Faith and willingness bring  miraculous demonstrations.  Miracles are “for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.”

No matter what religion you’ve been raised in, we’ve all been raised, in so many ways, NOT to trust, not to have faith. For most, our culture has raised us to be skeptical and suspicious.

How many times has each one of us felt betrayed? How often have the leaders of anything and everything asked for our trust and then betrayed it?

In this world, folks who do have faith and trust are sometimes considered naïve and foolish – stupid even.  I’ve certainly witnessed many times when people think that of me – even people who know me well and who’ve seen the miracles in my life transpire.

When you’ve felt betrayed, ask yourself, “In what did I place my trust and faith in?”

Did you place your trust in Spirit or ego? Faith and trust in the Divine is a completely different thing from faith and trust in people and corporations.  When someone is identified with ego, they’re not entirely trustworthy because ego never is.  We must place our faith and trust in the unseen in order to strengthen our mind and rise above the battle ground.

We must decide that we are profoundly interested in being faith-full. Remember, it is done unto us as we believe not as we hope. Invest yourself in faith through trusting in Spirit each day.  Faith is an investment in the Divine revealing itself in what’s happening now. Hope is a future possibility.

Look in your heart and find a place where there’s doubt.  Now, be willing to place your trust in Spirit’s ability to bring forth a healing.  Have trust to cultivate faith.  It works!   And Faith is worth all the effort!

Compare and Despair

Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

One of the biggest points of pain we have is the suffering folks experience caused by the habit of comparing themselves to others. Only the ego compares. The heart knows we are united in Oneness.

There’s no point in comparing. None. It’s just a trick of the ego to help you feel more separate.  Comparison always leads to suffering. Whether you compare and think you’ve come out ahead or come out lacking, since there’s only One, either way you just feel more separate.

Would your loving heart encourage someone you loved to compare themselves to someone who seems better than them or more special?  Would you ever say to your friend, “You’re not the best cook.  I know a few other people I like better than you who  are also much better cooks.  You’re not so great.  You’re just okay.”  I doubt you’d say anything remotely like that to another human being, but people say these things to themselves!

Comparison is judgment. All judgment is for the purpose of reinforcing separation.  All belief in separation causes feelings of fear.   Let’s have an active practice of relating to others and feeling the Unity of all life.

Watch your mind when it comes to comparing, attacking, and needing or wanting to be better than someone else.  The habit of comparing can be really sneaky, but since there’s no good that can come of it, just let it go every time you see it.

I find one of the best ways to let a negative thought pattern go is to make myself laugh about it.  So, that’s why in Masterful Living we say, “compare and despair.”  The rhyme helps us to be lighthearted and to remember to laugh.  And let’s face it, it also reminds us not to go down the road of despair!

There’s great healing that can come from our spiritual practice and it’s a benefit to all beings!

Transcending Darkness, Illness, & Depression

Tuesday, September 26th, 2017

Sometimes, the darkness can seem so real.  At times, the darkness can seem to have real power.  I have found it tremendously helpful to consistently remember that there is but one power and that power is Love.

Darkness has no power, but when we invest in the darkness, it does seem as though it has power.  But that’s only because we’ve leant it our energy.

A Course in Miracles reassures us so beautifully:

“You will never lose your way, for God leads you.  When you wander, you but undertake a journey that is not real.  The dark companions, the dark way, are all illusions.  Turn toward the light, for the little spark in you is part of a light so great that it can sweep you out of all darkness forever.  For your Father is your Creator, and you are like Him.  The children of light cannot abide in darkness, for darkness is not in them.”  T-11.III.5.

There are times when the darkness seems so sticky.  It can feel like quicksand.  And yet, the power to rise up and out of that quicksand is within us all if we choose it.  Join me on my radio show today, where my topic is Transcending Darkness, Illness, & Depression.

Now is the time for us to rise to our divinity.
Everything is for us.
Nothing is against us.
Victory is ours now!

Cure for Worrying

Monday, September 25th, 2017

The worried mind has invested in the idea that something other than God is happening and it’s working against them.

The worried mind looks to gather the evidence to support the theory that there is another power that’s more powerful than the Divine.

The worried mind manages and copes with the problem. The worried mind pours gasoline on the fire and then complains about the heat.

What is the cure for the worried mind? Be grateful. Count your blessings. Gratitude is so simple and so effective it is nothing short of miraculous!
It’s crazy to think that we can be worrying and available for our good at the same time.

Gratitude changes the mental channel.  When I’m grateful, my vibration is immediately lifted. Gratitude lifts my point of view, and now, I can see more clearly.

When I’m grateful, I can hear and sense and know Divine Insight and Wisdom because I’m more open to knowing the truth than I am to justifying a worried stance in lack and limitation.

A Course in Miracles reminds us to be grateful in order to bring a mind healing:

“I do not need gratitude, but you need to develop your weakened ability to be grateful, or
you cannot appreciate God.  He does not need your appreciation, but you do.  You cannot love
what you do not appreciate, for fear makes appreciation impossible.  When you are afraid of what
you are you do not appreciate it, and will therefore reject it.  As a result, you will teach rejection.” T-6.I.17.

Let’s have an active practice of being grateful that God IS, and that we’re never alone.

Let’s be grateful for everything just as it is so that we can find the blessings that are already ours.  Lift your vibration.  Raise your gaze!  Bring on YOUR miracles!  They are encoded into your very being!  Activate your blessings by being grateful – then receive the blessing that is yours to receive.

Try it to know that it works and then give up worry and complaining and rejoice that there IS a better way!

Forgive & Be Free Retreat

Sunday, September 24th, 2017

I don’t think I’ve ever been more aware of the power of Forgiveness.  In my life, I’ve seen the beautiful miracles that forgiveness brings, not just for me and my family, but for my counseling clients and people in my classes:

Healed bodies
Healed relationships
Healed finances
Healed careers
Healed self-esteem

Are any of those  benefits something you’d like to experience?

Gratitude Has Healing Power

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

I have found that an active practice of Gratitude is one of the most healing spiritual practices there is!  I use it every day to shift my mind and become more receptive to the good in life.  I’ve noticed that many people who are really suffering don’t have a gratitude practice.

In A Course in Miracles, there are so many references to the power of gratitude.  Again and again, we’re told that being grateful to our brother opens our mind to our salvation from pain and suffering.  And yet, so often, we still are more inclined to criticize and complain than to praise and give thanks for our fellow travelers on this planet.

Here’s a wonderful passage from ACIM that’s so clear about the power of gratitude:

“Your gratitude to your brother is the only gift I want.  I will bring it to God for you, knowing that to know your brother is to know God.  If you are grateful to your brother, you are grateful to God for what He created.  Through your gratitude you come to know your brother, and one moment of real recognition makes everyone your brother because each of them is of your Father.  T-4.VI.7.

I feel blessed by my practice of gratitude.  I look forward to sharing with you on the radio show today!

Having A Spiritual Profession

Monday, September 18th, 2017

I’ve known so many people over the years who have had such a strong desire to earn a living sharing their passion for spirituality and some of them have actually followed their heart and done what they felt called to do, but many have not.  They’re playing small and they know it.  It hurts.

When I first started in Ministerial School, in our very first gathering, a weekend retreat, we were told that the majority of the people who were in our program would *probably never follow through and have a profession as a minister.

It made sense to me.  Feelings of unworthiness stop so many people, it’s crazy!  It is true insanity for any of us to believe that we’re unworthy of following our calling.  Honestly, it doesn’t actually make sense.

Think about it.  As an example, let’s imagine that you have the talent and the ability to be an amazing dancer.  What if you felt unworthy of dancing, so you just never did any dancing.  Or you only danced by yourself and never with other people.  You see what I mean?

We are already imbued with everything we need to live our calling, whatever it is.

Every profession can be a spiritual profession, if we look at it correctly.

Yesterday, I got a flat tire.  It was a bit of an ordeal, because I was out in the boondocks of Vermont, where cell reception is pretty iffy.  Eventually, I got together with the service guy, Marcus, from AAA, (automobile association) to put my spare tire on.  He did a great job, and he was my hero.

My experience wasn’t a powerful spiritual experience, but Marcus was great, and he was kind and helpful.  If he were a spiritual student, he could have brought that to our connection, and if I were feeling upset or challenged, it could have been a real help to me.

In other words, any profession can be a spiritual one if we approach it that way.

TODAY, I start a series of 11 free Living A Course in Miracles classes on Having A Spiritual Career and I’m excited to share with you!

If you haven’t already registered, please take a moment now so that you can get all these beautiful free classes with me, Cindy Lora Renard, David Fishman, Tama Kieves, and Maria Felipe.  What a blessing!

Listening With Love

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

As a seeker of truth, I am constantly listening to my own thoughts.  Throughout my days, I am frequently examining my choices and my motivations.  I’m holding my thoughts and my actions up to the Light, and looking for the old B.S. (Belief System).

Over the years of cultivating a practice of deep listening, I came to recognize how valuable my intention is.  If I hold an intention to be loving, then, I’m in a field of Love that’s potent.  It’s powerful.  It’s an active field of grace.  If I have no intention – it’s like opening yourself up to all manner of unwished-for possibilities.

Plus, I noticed that people felt my intention more than they heard my words or observed my actions.  My intentions are worth the energy it takes to be clear about them.

Every time I tried to camouflage my unloving intention with loving words, I was found out.  I could see it in the eyes of the person I was speaking with.  I could literally feel it in their energy.  They knew what I was doing even if they didn’t call me out for it.

Back then, I wasn’t always kind.  I’ve profoundly transformed my entire life by simply being willing to learn to be kind, patient, and compassionate with MYSELF.  And that’s taught me to be compassionate with others.

I learned how to listen deeply as a spiritual counselor.  I began to apply my deep listening skills to my own thoughts.  I noticed I was frequently being critical of myself for not being more loving.  And, of course, I also saw that in being self-critical about not being more loving, I was being even more unloving.  Ugh!

I could run, but I couldn’t hide. This is how I learned that the judger always feels judged, and the lover always feels loved.  I learned it the hard way – through painful experiences.  Now, I rejoice that I can learn more and more through simply remembering the truth that sets me free.

“We have what we seek.  It is there all the time, and if we give it time it will make itself known to us,” says Thomas Merton.  Seek and ye shall find.  Listen with ears to hear and you will hear.

Today, I take a deep breath and remember that my practice of deep listening is about being aware:  incredibly, wonderfully, lovingly aware.  It’s not about being critical.  It’s about being awake – without judgment.

I am listening to remember the truth and hold that awareness of truth for myself and others.  My strong intention to hear clearly means that judgments have no place in my listening process.  I can be discerning without judgment.

What’s the difference between discernment and judgment?  Love.  My loving intention has a force far greater than my words or my actions.  How do I maintain a loving intention?  Practice.  Surrender.

I listen with Love, and  Peace begins with me.

Small Choices, Big Results

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

Have you ever been consumed and distracted with running errands and doing chores, instead of expanding into Love, Beauty and Wisdom through spiritual practice?  I have!  I’ve chosen the ego satisfaction of getting things done instead of deepening my spiritual connection.

Sometimes we’d rather accomplish routine tasks in order to feel productive rather than simply be contemplative and commune with Spirit for 20 minutes. We’re avoiding that spiritual connection.  The ego is such a trickster. We can get everything done and orderly and have missed the whole point of experiencing more order and clarity.  Success is not about ego satisfaction and accomplishment.  It’s far more productive for us to choose Clarity, Joy and spiritual expansion.  It’s not about what we did – it’s about what we ARE.

Then too, some folks live in such a mess of disorder that they find it impossible to concentrate and are always off balance and playing catch up, arriving late and feeling distracted.  They spin around for those 20 minutes that they could have used to tune in and tune UP and experience more Freedom!  Been there and done that!

Right now, more than ever, there’s gold in the little moments of choosing Love.  The choice we make is either opening to Love or choosing separation – even in the little and insignificant choices. There’s the power and presence of God in each choice we make, if we look for it.  It’s SO worth making a series of seemingly small, loving choices.  In my experience, it’s life-changing.  It’s that drip, drip, drip that can fill our cup much quicker than we thought.

Making many small loving choices transforms our fearful life into a life full of Love.

I say, let’s go for the gold! Our HEART of gold that IS the Kingdom. Are you in? What say you?

Full Moon Freedom

Thursday, September 7th, 2017

Yesterday, we had a full moon.  Full moon is ALL about harvesting and releasing.  From what I can see, right now, in many parts of this world, people are releasing A LOT.  We’re releasing on all levels, physically, emotionally, and mentally – as well as, karmically.

If you’ve been noticing that you’ve been holding onto old stuff, it’s been coming up for healing, and the pain is pushing you, then please know it’s not that something’s wrong with you – it’s the way things are when we’re actively praying for healing, but still resisting.

Total surrender really is the way to go.  We’re all going to surrender every last opinion, judgment, regret, resentment, jealousy, hurt, worry, doubt, shame, and blame eventually, so why not let it all go now?

Instead of hanging onto all that stuff, we can look for ways to be helpful.  It’s a lot more rewarding, fun and fruitful to be of service to ourselves and others.

It’s very important for all of us to know now that acting out of resentment, playing mind games, pretending, and living in denial – we’ve all done so much of it, we’ve learned all we can.  So, until we let it go, it’s just going to get more and more difficult.

No kidding.  We’re living in the time of instant karma.  We’ve asked for assistance to let go of all the things we hurt ourselves with.  The intensity of density that people are feeling is the constant reminder to choose Heaven instead.  It might feel really hard, but it’s actually so simple – but it does require a leap of faith. And that’s not something the ego will ever agree to, so you align with Spirit, make the leap and remember to laugh.  Remember, we’re all going to surrender every last opinion, judgment, regret, resentment, jealousy, hurt, worry, doubt, shame, and blame eventually, so why not let it all go now? Why wait?

Everything is aligning for us to feel more supported, held and carried in our spiritual awakening.  Of course, if you’re experiencing a lot of resistance and reluctance to shift and change, you may still be feeling an intense amount of pressure to give up what no longer serves.  What we don’t surrender with grace, sometimes gets taken from us.

Whether we like it or not, there’s no way around it, now is the time for us to give up what doesn’t serve and to get with the awakening program.  If we’re not actively, gratefully accepting it, it will feel like pressure, pushing and prodding us.  Fortunately, the blocks to Love don’t help us, so we can immediately begin to feel so much tangible benefit when we release them to Spirit for lifting and shifting.
If you’re feeling called to release things in the world of form, remember, the main thing we have to do is release the attachment to people, places, and things.  Once we release the attachment then things can naturally align in the most loving way.

This full moon is a powerful alignment that supports our goal of awakening.  Enjoy the energy boosts and make plans to do extra spiritual practice today!

I thought I’d share with you a really simple and, for me, powerful and healing ceremony you can do on your own or with friends. Do it today or tomorrow while we’re still in this full moon energy.

The end of summer, where I am, is the perfect time to do a Full Moon Wisdom Harvest.  Full moon represents the time to harvest the learning we’ve had and be grateful for it.  We can also harvest the learning we’ve rejected.  Anything we’ve been holding in resentment, regret, hurt, blame, or shame can be brought to a harvest of the learning through our willingness.  It may seem crazy, but the mental/emotional shift that turns the tide of upset is to be grateful for things as they are.  Our gratitude raises our vibration so that we can see, hear, feel and know more clearly the learning and benefit that’s encoded into every single thing in our lives.

Now is the time of Harvest!  When we’re actively harvesting the learning from our experiences then we don’t have to repeat them!  It’s just like when we learn how to do anything, we don’t have to keep repeating it once you get it.  When we keep having the same repeat experiences then it’s a sure sign we’re rejecting the learning and believing that the meaning we’ve made of things – our interpretations – are correct.  If we’re still upset about something that happened, we’re not correct.  The upset is the Divine Alarm Clock going off to let us know that our thinking is incorrect and can be corrected.  It’s that old, “would you rather be right or happy?”  It’s your life, you choose.

Full moon is also for releasing what is no longer desired and what no longer serves. To me, it’s about purification. It’s about celebrating that I can let go of the burdens, the negative patterns and suffering of the past.

Full moon is also a fun time to have a ceremony.  

Right now, when so much changing is going on – a ceremony can be something helpful to shift the energy and welcome the healing changes!  Today or tomorrow, gather loved ones, friends and family to make it a Harvest & Release celebration!

I always begin with being clear about why I’m doing what I’m doing.

I appreciate starting with setting of intention.
I intend to release what doesn’t serve me.

Light a white candle
Have a glass of water.
You can consecrate your space with offerings of smudge and prayer.

It’s powerful to write out what no longer serves and is being released. If you have friends with you, you may wish to share what you’ve written specifically or generally.  No pressure on that.  Make it a safe space.

It’s nice to have a fire to place the offerings of what you’ve written in – a fire puja is always lovely – offering prayers to the fire as well as any writing – release it all! You can do that in a backyard fire pit, fireplace, or a burning bowl. I love that part!

Open your heart to what you’d like to call into your life. Set your intention for expansion and Clarity, Purity, and Joy – what you’d like to experience this season! I always focus on how I’d like to feel and am careful not to get attached to how things show up in form. Focus on what the feeling is.

More prayer, chanting, dancing, having a meal – these are all wonderful. Dance to celebrate your willingness to have a healing!  May your release be complete and your heart be cleared for lift-off!

Self-Compassion

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

One of the most challenging things we can learn in our life is to turn the focus of our mind from what we don’t want and to focus on having that which we truly desire.  At least that’s been the most challenging thing for me to actually DO.  For many years, I started so many days praying and meditating to be a loving, peaceful presence in this world.  And then I would spend the rest of the day judging myself and my loved ones and anyone else who crossed my path.  At the end of the day, I would feel like a hopeless loser, anxious and afraid.  At night, I’d dream of arguing with my loved ones and endlessly seeking and never finding.

One of my recurring dreams was that I had an opportunity to do something really wonderful, something that I really, really wanted and would enjoy – often it was something like tickets to a Rolling Stones concert, which was a teenage passion of mine – and for some reason or another, I could never get there.

In the dream, I would realize I didn’t have film for my camera (pre-digital camera times), and I would decide to make a quick run to a nearby store and then never make it back to the concert.  No matter how hard I tried to get back to the concert, I’d be delayed and thwarted.  The longer my distraction took, the more desperate and distressed I would become to get back to the concert.  I’d feel panic because I was missing all the good parts!  I would wake up in the distress of seeking, but not finding.  I had that dream again and again.  It was the story of my life.

I now have eyes to see and a heart to know that the dream simply represented my spiritual life.  I was, every day, distracted in my spiritual walk.  I could talk it, but I didn’t walk it with a real dedication.  I was constantly distracted.  I stopped having that dream when I made the commitment to live the teachings all day long.

Of course, each and every day, I am aware of the places where I fall short of the mark, but I am aware of my choices more than ever.  I choose Love more than ever.  I judge less and less and less.  I’m firmly on the path and nothing can take me off it now.

In my learning, I felt like a toddler learning to walk who falls down many times a day.  Falling down a lot was part of the learning.  Being wobbly is part of the learning.  It’s not that I’m doing something wrong when I fall down.  I’m learning.

Because I was aware that I was learning something that was new to me, I decided to make the easier loving and have compassion for myself.  Compassion is loving understanding.  It became the foundation of my spiritual practice.

Love is the healer.  I’ve learned true self-compassion through my experience of stumbling, falling, and picking myself up.  Everyone sees me fall and stumble.  Everyone also sees that I am dedicated to learning to walk this talk of Love.  They see that I do not chastise myself or berate myself when I fall.  Sometimes I cry, sometimes I laugh, but I always get up with more compassion than I had before I fell.  And so, the Love grows in my heart, in my awareness, and I bless myself and everyone else, because I’m One with them.

And this is how I learn to walk my talk.  The more I learn, the more I can give up learning and simply remember the truth that sets us all free.  I am so grateful we walk together.  Together we remember we are One and we bless the world!

Undoing

Sunday, September 3rd, 2017

One of the most beautiful aspects of A Course in Miracles is that it always lets us know that Spirit loves us and we are dearly cared for.  No matter what we do, or what we’ve done, we’ll never be punished.  “All things are lessons God would have me learn.”

I also love that ACIM tells us we can learn how to remember what we already know, what is eternal truth, the truth that sets us free, we don’t have to learn through experience.  Learning through remembering is Joy-full.  Learning through experience is usually painful.

When people ask me where to start with ACIM I have two suggestions for them:

I recommend starting with the Manual for Teachers and with Gary Renard’s excellent and inspiring book, Disappearance of the Universe.

One of the most helpful sections in all of ACIM is in the Manual for Teachers, Chapter 4 – the Characteristics of God’s Teachers.  The first one is Trust.  And the Section A. Development of Trust is one I recommend people read every day for a week, and then once a week after that.

Here’s how it begins:

“A. Development of Trust
First, they must go through what might be called “a period of undoing.”  This need not be painful, but it usually is so experienced.  It seems as if things are being taken away, and it is rarely understood initially that their lack of value is merely being recognized. How can lack of value be perceived unless the perceiver is in a position where he must see things in a different light?  He is not yet at a point at which he can make the shift entirely internally.  And so the plan will sometimes call for changes in what seem to be external circumstances.  These changes are always helpful.  When the teacher of God has learned that much, he goes on to the second stage.”  M-4.I.A.3.

Do you notice the part where it says, “This need not be painful, but it usually is so experienced.”  We can change that by being willing AND committed to remembering instead of learning.

When we’re clinging to the past, it makes the undoing painful.  How can the Higher Holy Spirit Self take from us the causes of our pain if we cling to them?  It’s not possible.  We have to be willing to let them go.

That’s why I find it so helpful to say, “I don’t know what anything is for.”  Why would I cling to something when I don’t know what it’s for?  If I think that this thing will bring me happiness, but the fear of losing it makes me frightened, wouldn’t it be incredibly helpful to be willing to let go of the meaning I’ve given it?

And then, people ask me, “How, Jennifer? How do I let go of the meaning I’ve given it?”

We don’t know the “how” of it, but we do know what to do.  We give it to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing.  When we’re willing to release the attachment, it can be undone.  When we’re not willing, it can be undone.  Pretty simple.

When I’m not willing, it can feel like I’m being punished.  But God doesn’t punish.  It’s only that all attachments cause suffering.

How does the Higher Holy Spirit Self do the undoing in our mind?  How do the attachments get released once we’re willing?  I don’t remember and I don’t actually care that I don’t remember, as long as it works.  I give the Holy Spirit the heavy lifting and it works when I really mean it.  If I don’t really mean it, it doesn’t work.

I pray to be willing.  Every day, I pray to be more willing.  Let’s pray on it!

Affirmation:  I am willing to let go of all attachments.

Invest in Multiplying the Good!

Saturday, September 2nd, 2017

I’ve written the last few days of Spiritual Espresso on the topic of punishment.  The first one in this series, You Are Not Punished was about people who are suffering begin to mistakenly believe that God is punishing them.

I feel it’s extremely valuable for us to look into this concept of punishment as well as its application.  I have been an aggressive grudge holder who could be very punishing and I’ve learned a lot about how to ruin my life through punishment.  I don’t recommend it.

Instead, I recommend that we look deeply into the matter with the strong intention to rid the world of the belief in the value of punishment.  I mean that quite seriously.  Let’s aspire to take all humanity higher.

The energy that it takes to inflict punishment towards the Self or someone else is tremendous.  It requires a full denial of the Spirit.  And it produces an energetic hangover that is also a big energy drain to recover from.

I invite you to consider how much of the energy that you have to live a great life, have spiritual success, career momentum and Creativity, to be in intimate, healing and fulfilling relationships, to be joyful and have fun, you might be investing in punishing yourself or other people for a variety of reasons.  Wouldn’t you really rather be able to invest that energy in something you’d enjoy?

Wouldn’t you really rather take your investment out of a losing proposition and invest it in one that brings Abundance and Prosperity, multiplying the good?

It can seem SO difficult to break an entrenched pattern, but not to the Higher Holy Spirit Self.  To Spirit, it’s a piece of cake, because the pattern is false and nothing true supports it, therefore it’s nothing with no power.  God is the only power and when we invest our awareness and attention, our heart and our belief in it, then it appears to be something.  There’s only one power and that’s Love.  When we, who are Love, invest in something false, it appears to be real because we’re given it our power.

Let’s take our power back from punishing and invest it in praising, loving, and being generous of heart.  We can do this.  How do I know we can do it?  Because we’re designed for it.  This is what we’re intended for.  Of course, we can do what we’re designed for.

Let’s decide today is the day we withdraw the invest of time, energy and attention in valuing punishment and re-invest all of it in loving instead.  We can be spiritual heroes.  Today’s the day to have it our way!

God’s Will for You

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

Sometimes, there’s a great deal of fear about what God’s Will for us might be.  We shrink back in terror that God is going to ask us to do something we don’t wish to do.

We mistakenly believe that we’re going to have to give up sex, drugs, rock ’n’ roll, and even things such as potato chips and watching movies.  Some people think you have to give up dancing.

Aligning with God’s Will doesn’t ever mean giving up something that’s valuable.  ACIM tells us, “All real
pleasure comes from doing God’s Will.”

We cannot see the Joy of being the happy learner, fully supported in life, while identified with the ego.  It’s not possible.  We have to be willing to change our point of view.  In order to see we have to be willing to be shown.

A Course in Miracles says it this way:

“Your distorted perceptions produce a dense cover over miracle impulses, making it hard for them to reach your own awareness.  The confusion of miracle impulses with physical impulses is a major perceptual distortion.  Physical impulses are misdirected miracle impulses.  All real pleasure comes from doing God’s Will.  This is because not doing it is a denial of Self.  Denial of Self results in illusions, while correction of the error brings release from it.”

It’s difficult to understand what God’s Will for us is when we fear it so much because of our false beliefs and distorted perceptions.

Today, let’s open our mind to the truth that sets us free.  Let’s truly understand that God’s Will for us is perfect Peace and continuous, unconditional Joy, and let’s decide to live there, even if we don’t yet know how it could ever happen.

Our decision and our willingness are the steps that begin the journey.  Let’s begin together today!
