Tears of Gratitude

Friday, February 22nd, 2019

For a long time, I didn’t cry. I won’t say that I couldn’t cry, but just that I didn’t cry. Well, alright, that’s not entirely accurate. The only things that made me well up with tears were movies and stories about people being able to find their own redemption.

For instance, Norma Rae, when she stands on the table with the “union” sign, I cry like a baby every time. Her standing up to the oppressor is such an act of courage and in a sense, redemption, that it touches me deeply.

I also cry when I see a marching band. I just love a parade. They get me every time. It’s the moving in unison. It’s the joining together for the purpose of making something beautiful. It touches my heart.

When I sang in the Agape International Choir, I used to cry while we sang all the time. I wasn’t the only one. I could look down the row and see others singing their heart out with tears running down their cheeks. We were singing our prayers of gratitude and rising up to Spirit. It was a beautiful and healing experience.

Many times, I knew that I was crying to release the stored sadness from a time when I thought I’d never get to the place of healing where I was in that moment. I am so grateful, SO VERY grateful, for the healing I’ve experienced, and that is why I must keep sharing that so much healing is possible for each of us.

If we’re willing and we choose it, healing is ours.

Upset

Thursday, February 21st, 2019

When life hands us major storms of drama and trauma, it’s also a time for extreme and extraordinary healing. There truly is a tremendous benefit to being able to consciously go through experiences of intense overwhelm and distress. I’m not saying that it’s easy, because it isn’t. However, being able to look at our greatest upsets from a higher perspective allows us to move through it with less pain and suffering.

It’s actually a profound act of Self-Love to be willing, just willing, to stop interpreting everything that’s going on and to put a pause on thinking we know what the meaning of everything is.

When things in our life become super challenging, when the rug is pulled out from under us, it’s life-threatening to the ego. It can be helpful to remember that the ego identification is all about being identified as a being that is inside of structure, such as relationship, career, financial status, home, body, health, etc. If these structures are threatened, then the ego is threatened to such a degree that it feels as though our life is at stake, and sometimes it leads us to wish that we could die.

What’s really happening is the Spirit is breaking through the false shell of the ego/personality attachments. A Course in Miracles tells us that it need not be painful, but it usually is. It’s painful because when we’re identified with the relationships, career, financial status, etc. we don’t know who we are or how to be without them. It’s terrifying because without those things we feel worthless, and we can feel intensely disoriented.

Probably the most intense example is when a loved one dies suddenly. This is usually a huge shock. We ask, “Who am I without this person?” I remember feeling that when my Mom passed. I literally asked myself “Who am I now?”

For me, I had become identified as my mother’s caregiver, and now that role was gone. I had been her caregiver 24/7, along with my father, and that was our entire focus. Without that focus, who was I?

We become identified with the roles we play, and if they are no longer valuable or necessary it’s an intense shift for the ego. This happens with people when their animal companions make their transitions and it’s very challenging, especially because people without animal companions don’t understand. A bond with an animal can be FAR stronger than with a person because the Love is unconditional. The relationship is near perfect.

When we get fired, it can be a big shock. When our legs no longer work they way they used to, it’s a big challenge to the ego. When the beautiful woman is no longer beautiful in her own eyes, it’s a challenge. It’s like the ground beneath our feet is shaking and we’re not prepared for it.

When these challenges occur, as they do in everyone’s life, we can learn to breathe and turn to the Higher Holy Spirit Self. The most valuable thing is to be able to turn the mind away from meaning making and to reach for the truth.

The truth is that our true identity is perfect and always complete. Other people, jobs, beauty, money, houses, these things do not complete us. We are already complete.

When the question is “Who am I now?” The answer is: Pure Spirit.

Being able to turn away from interpreting events that rock our world is a great act of Self-Love that helps us to tune into our true identity as perfect and pure Spirit. This then becomes a time of great healing. We must let go of ego attachments and see what’s really true. It’s not fun, but it’s powerfully productive for our spiritual growth.

I’ve stood by many a person as they walk through this intensity of density and seen the quantum leap of growth that they can embody and then share with those around them. This is a profound aspect of our journey, and the way to appreciate it is to accept what is and remember to reach for the truth. The truth is always our liberator, and valuing it is an act of Love for our Creator and ourselves!

Full Moon Healing

Wednesday, February 20th, 2019

Have you noticed that there’s been some super intense energy in the last few days? I noticed it most intensely Monday and Tuesday morning. This often happens around the time of the full moon! The moon just went full last night and that usually helps bring some relief.

Full moon is a time of healing through releasing what no longer serves. Full moon is also a time of harvest – harvesting the wisdom from our experiences and then releasing any and all attachments – that’s what a full moon healing ceremony is for!

What a time of healing this is! Let’s call forth an amazing healing and release all blocks to Love!

Many believe that extraordinary spiritual growth and expansion are impossible. I used to feel that way. The growth I desired felt so elusive. I just concluded that it was because there was something wrong with me that made it impossible for me.

What’s so cool is that even though I believed it couldn’t work for me, I was willing to shift. My willingness has brought tremendous healing.

So many of the people who begin the year in Masterful Living feel that the healing, expansion and life they desire is not possible for them. They have doubt that what they desire could ever be theirs.

At the end of every year, I talk with folks who, at the beginning of the year, were unbelievers – but not anymore!

Let me just tell you how grateful I feel that I have followed my guidance even when it was REALLY hard for me. I am so grateful and here’s why:

It’s because of hearing people’s stories of what changed for them in our Masterful Living community.

Imagine starting the year feeling that this is the year you’re going to file for divorce. It’s clear, the writing is on the wall in every room of your house. You and your spouse just aren’t compatible and there’s nothing you can do about it – you’ve tried everything you can think of.

But then, you decided to really live a simple spiritual practice. You decided to give the relationship to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing and you made the effort to leave it on the altar and begin to hold the vision for a holy relationship. And your relationship began to improve and heal and become something really beautiful. I see it happen every year to many people in our community.

Year after year, I hear the beautiful and truly profound stories of people making the mental shifts that heal their life and relationships.

And the healing happens even though they don’t believe.

It’s life-changing.
When we experience these kinds of healing, then we’re changed forever.

I invite you to really go for it this coming year – focus on your willingness!

Cultivate a willingness to learn that the miracles will happen for you when you’re willing to practice and give Spirit a chance.

I have collected so many beautiful stories. Each one is a precious jewel.

It does take willingness. And that’s what spiritual community helps with. Together, we hold the light for each other so we don’t give up.

One time I spoke with someone who had decided to give up and drop out of class. She was so sure it couldn’t work for her that she was all set to withdraw.

And then she talked with someone in the community about it and changed her mind.

And now, she’s helping others to not give up, because where she was once constantly worried, she’s found peace. And she’s so grateful now she’s inspired to help others in achieving their goals with their spiritual practice. She was CONVINCED it couldn’t work for her, but it did.

We replace the old thought with the new thought and we’re on our way to a new experience of Peace and Harmony! It’s easier than you think to change everything in your mind and your life, if you’re willing.

Also – if you’re willing, come away with me for your healing!

Awakening Now!

Friday, February 8th, 2019

I AM focused on healing. I don’t have any problem telling anyone who’s interested that I’m actively working on my healing. And I share my healing with everyone because we’re one.

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 growth for decades, but there were so many set backs that I often felt ashamed because 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. I LOVE being a learner.

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 the 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, and I’m grateful for that.

We have so much support from the invisible. Let’s accept it.

Let’s allow the healing to happen and not get in the way of it, anymore.

Let’s DECIDE to make this year the year that we choose the highest level of healing that we can hold. No more delays. Now is the time for us.

Let’s truly allow ourselves to be learners, without judgment, harvesting the Wisdom that we learn from making 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 a year of spiritual liberation. 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 spiritual liberation? Let’s do it together! What Joy awaits us?!

I Love A Bully

Wednesday, February 6th, 2019

Have you ever been bullied? I have. Have you ever been the bully? I have. I’ve been on both sides of the experience and what I’ve learned is that the one who acts like a bully is really offering a cry for Love.

Often times. the person who seems like a bully feels so weak and helpless that the only they choice they can see. in order to regain their footing and their sense of self. is to try to push other people around. People who act like a bully will bully themselves. too.

The one who bullies is usually afraid. because they’re convinced that if they don’t get their way that things will be bad, wrong, and unbearable. They are so afraid that things will go badly that they will be willing to ruin their relationships in order to get their way. It’s a form of temporary insanity.

Any form of anger or cruelty is temporary insanity. Let’s have compassion for the one who behaves insanely. Let’s have compassion for the one who is so afraid that they have to intimidate others in order to feel safe. There’s no safety in intimidation. It’s pure insanity.

Having compassion doesn’t mean that we tolerate their behavior. It means not returning the attack, but responding with Love, like the students who were trained in nonviolence during the 1960’s Civil Rights movement.

It might seem hard to believe that the one who acts like a bully feels weak and afraid, but it’s true. Having compassion for the person who feels weak and afraid, even if they’re acting like a bully, can be healing and transformative.

A person who behaves like a bully is often expressing anger – and that anger is really a sign of fear and hurt. Let’s stop looking at the surface and treating the symptoms – let’s go to the root cause and do our healing work!

Let’s extend Love and compassion to the one who acts like a bully – whether it’s oneself or someone else. The healing always starts with our willingness.

Interacting with someone who acts like a bully, whether it’s internal or external, is no fun. However, healing is always available to us when we are willing to choose Love.

Choosing Love isn’t always easy, sometimes it is tremendously challenging – and, in my experience, it’s ALWAYS worth the effort. In fact, the more challenging it is to choose Love, the more benefit there is for us in making the loving choice.

Let’s choose Love today! Let’s find compassion in our hearts for those who behave like a bully. Let’s expand our ability to choose Love to the maximum. Let’s maximize all of the healing opportunities there are for us. Let’s really go for it this year!!

Lessons of Love

Tuesday, February 5th, 2019

Love never fails and ego always fails. It’s the truth of life, and it’s borne out every single day of our lives. We can learn from our expressions of Love and, when we do, it awakens our remembrance of the truth – it’s liberating.

If I could give you some knowledge, some insight, some healing awareness, it would be the belief that you can never fail, because you are Love and Love never fails.

For me, the way that I have learned this is to place my faith and trust in Love. The way I have learned that Love never fails, that the Light of God can never fail, is to be in service to the Light – to live in service to the Light, and it is through being that, living that, doing that, that I’ve come to know and understand that Love and Light cannot fail.

Now, I can see that the only failure there is is the “failure to communicate” Love. And yet, when it seems that we’ve failed to be loving, because of Love and the Power of Love, there is always learning and so Love wins.

What would you invest yourself in, if you knew you couldn’t fail? Be the Love in that thing and you will not fail, you cannot fail.

My invitation to you today is to practicing being of service to the Light through all that you do today. It’s about being Love in your mind and shining that forth into all of your activities. People cannot fail to notice and be inspired, too. And in this way, we share our success with everyone!

This is precisely why the #1 benefit people see in their lives during my Masterful Living Course is the transformation of their relationships. The healing happens in our hearts and spreads to everyone we know. It’s truly miraculous and so inspiring!

The Last Mile

Friday, February 1st, 2019

Imagine that you’re a long distance runner in a marathon race.

You’re running and running and it’s tiring.

Your muscles become depleted, weary and sore.

Your feet and back ache.

You may feel like giving up, because you’d like the pain to be over.

You just want to stop.

Maybe you complain about the scenery along the way.

Maybe you resent and judge the company you meet along the way.

Maybe it feels like you’re running through a valley of shadows and death.

And yet, you cannot actually stop until you cross the finish line.

The only option you have is to drag the race out.

You can fall to your knees and begin to crawl.

You can sit down and wallow in your misery.

If you choose, you can make it more painful, more intense.

Or, you can use your mind to rise above it and keep thine eye single.

You can use every part of your experience to refine your mind and strengthen your awareness of what’s true and what’s not.

You can rejoice to know the journey is coming to an end and your victory is certain.

You’re in the last bit now. You can pick up the pace,or you can slow down. It’s up to you.

You can complain that it’s not over yet and lengthen your experience of the journey, or you can rejoice that your victory is in sight.

The I AM offers us ALL the strength we need to make it to victory. Ask and it is given!

I AM the strength, the courage, the power to move forward steadily through all experiences, whatever they may be, and remain joyous and uplifted, filled with Peace and Harmony at all times by the Glorious Presence which “I AM.” Victory is mine! Victory is mine! Victory is mine!

The basic decision of the miracle-minded
is not to wait on time any longer than is necessary.
Time can waste as well as be wasted.
A Course in Miracles

Are you willing to put the I AM Presence / Higher Holy Spirit Self in charge of your journey to carry you to the end?

Tomorrow: SUPER Early Bird Ends on Saturday  Spring Clearing Retreat March 20 to 24 – with Lisa Natoli, Corinne Zupko, Jon Mundy, myself and more!  Plus, Jon Mundy and I are offering our Lead & Create A Workshop teacher training which includes certification to lead my Forgive & Be Free Workshop!  March 14 to 20.

Prayer Partners

Thursday, January 31st, 2019

Right now I’m visiting my BFF, Rev. Karen Russo in Scottsdale, Arizona and I feel blessed. Karen and I have been Prayer Partners for more than 20 years, and our relationship is so clean and clear. We’re 100% in support of each other.

I have my “spiritual posse” of Prayer Partners that are the best-est of friends, and it’s a powerful and beautiful thing to have a solid relationship that is completely about support and celebration of our divinity and Wholeness. My Prayer Partners are my best friends, and I can count on them to join with me and remember the truth with me. We each feel secure in the knowledge that we’re supported at a profound and fundamental level. It’s spiritual security.

Many desire to have spiritual expansion, to feel that deep and fulfilling connection with Spirit. Many yearn simply to be at Peace. And still, there’s resistance and reluctance. Sometimes it seems endless and oppressive – but there’s a cure. It’s the willingness to look within to find the Kingdom of God, where it is actually located.

There’s no substitute for doing the inner work, and there’s no greater way I know than to be able to do it with like-minded souls. Because we resist it so much, it’s a great relief to know that when we gather together, two or more, we can have extraordinary breakthroughs and healing. There’s power in joining!

I encourage you to find a group, a Prayer Partner, a community and commit to the highest level of healing that you’re willing to accept. Now is the time of great healing – let’s say YES and invite the Higher Holy Spirit Self to join us with like-minded souls for our healing!

This is why I LOVE retreats. We get so much ACCOMPLISHED in our healing. It’s beautiful to experience!

ANNOUNCEMENTS: SUPER Early Bird Ends on Saturday  Spring Clearing Retreat March 20 to 24 – with Lisa Natoli, Corinne Zupko, Jon Mundy, myself and more!  Plus, Jon Mundy and I are offering our Lead & Create A Workshop teacher training which includes certification to lead my Forgive & Be Free Workshop!  March 14 to 20.

Unity

Friday, January 25th, 2019

More and more, I see that the problem is separation and the answer is to recognize that “Unity already is”. We don’t have to make anything happen. It’s already done. The healing we desire is already here, if we’re willing to accept it.

When I was in ministerial school at the Holmes Institute, it was a very intellectual program. (Which is why the ministerial program we’re creating at Power of Love Ministry is deeply spiritual and transformational.) We were required to take classes in quantum physics, and I can see the value of having that information, which could possibly lead to insight, but I didn’t personally find it healing.

Nonetheless, I do find it helpful that quantum physicists have scientifically proven that we are deeply connected to all of life. There’s a quantum field in which we live, move, and have our being, and even scientists recognize that. There is not one of us who can remove ourselves from that profound interconnection and inter-dependency. Unity is evidenced in theories such as “The Butterfly Effect” and “the 100th Monkey Syndrome.” The Holographic Field Theory is yet another theory of Unity – isn’t it interesting that it’s just a theory? LOL!

For me, I most often experience this sense of Unity in my prayer practice. I am aware in my being, in my body, and spirit that the prayer I’m praying is active everywhere at the moment I’m praying it. I become keenly aware of living in a Universe (not a bi-verse or a tri-verse) that is awake and alive to my every thought. It’s responding to me in every moment.

In the Unity, there is no space or time, there is only now. My prayer doesn’t have to travel distances in time and space in order to arrive where it is needed. My prayer is placed in the unified field of energy in which we all live, and move, and have our being. Everywhere I go, there is both visible and invisible evidence of the Unity of all life. I have learned to cherish this connection, this interdependence. It is frequently offering me the most spectacular evidence of Divine Grace at work in my life.

Today I look for ways to see beyond outer differences in opinions, appearances, or goals. I look for the ways in which there is connection and synchronicity, and I give thanks for the evidence of Unity all around me. I commit myself to looking for the meeting point of underlying Unity that exists in diversity, and I receive that awareness of Unity as a gift of expanding awareness. Today I lift my eyes to see divinity in the Unity of all life showing up in MY life. As I am lifted, all are lifted.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: Spring Clearing Retreat March 20 to 24 – with Lisa Natoli, Corinne Zupko, Jon Mundy, myself and more! Plus, Jon Mundy and I are offering our HOW TO CREATE & LEAD A WORKSHOP training which includes certification to lead my Forgive & Be Free Workshop! March 14 to 20. Register for both and save.

Ask and Receive

Thursday, January 24th, 2019

In Masterful Living class I’ve been sharing about the power of asking. One thing I witness is that many spiritual students don’t ask for support enough from Spirit and from other people. There’s an infinite amount of support, but we don’t ask because we don’t feel worthy.

We’ve come to believe that it’s better to give than to receive, but it’s actually not true. Receiving is critical to our spiritual success, because everything we receive we receive from God – where else could it come from?

I AM focused on healing and my healing requires my receptivity.

I don’t have any problem telling anyone who’s interested that I’m actively working on my healing – at the level of the mind and letting it ripple throughout my life.

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 setbacks, 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 setbacks. Why? because I’m not judging myself for being a learner. I’m SO grateful that I can be a learner. To learn anything at all is a blessing.

This year, I’m EVEN MORE 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 the 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.

We have so much support from the invisible. 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 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. 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!

Grace is Elegant

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019

I love, love, LOVE starting a new year in Masterful Living classes. There’s such a potency to what we’re accomplishing together, and the energy of the healing we’re calling forth is SO palpable. I am so grateful to participate.

What I’m keenly aware of these last couple of days is the natural elegance that Spirit constantly pours forth. There’s a palpable elegance to the way God operates, and it’s called grace.
I love looking words up in the dictionary. Words are a power tool, and I like to use them correctly and with intention. I also love elegance. It’s a quality of life that feels nourishing to me. According to Webster’s Dictionary, “elegance” means “refined grace”. I love the idea of being someone who walks in a space of refined grace.

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

There is an opportunity to allow Divine Elegance and grace to move through me in any given moment. I must be the one to activate it and call it forth in order to experience it. My intention is to release any habit of waiting for someone else to do what is mine to do in my own life. My commitment is to become alert to the opportunity to choose to be elegant and develop new habits.

I’d like to experience an ever increasing sense of elegance in all areas of my life.

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

True Perception & Miracles

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019

For so long, I was convinced that I had to manage and cope with fear. I had to solve the problem that fear was to me. It felt so daunting. And, there were times when it felt like a gauntlet I was running. This is what perception is all about. “Perception” and “mis-perception” go together.

Every day we can transmute fear, and negativity, and upset from the past if we put some attention on it – we have the power. We don’t have to figure out HOW. We only have to Partner UP, request and receive Divine Assistance, and ALLOW the healing.

We ask, receive and allow Divine Assistance in all things.

It seems like the causes of fear are in the world, but they’re not. The causes of fear are in our perception. Where does our perception come from? It comes from our belief system. Change our beliefs, and we can eliminate all the causes of fear. Let’s do it as a gift to ourselves. Let’s do it out of Love for ourselves.

Eliminating the habits of fear and changing our beliefs is so completely doable when we’re willing. It requires focus, attention, forgiveness, compassion and gratitude. It is not hard. The world will tell you it’s hard. The ego will tell you it is impossible. It only seems hard because we have an attachment to thinking the causes of fear are outside. And, with God, all things are possible.

If we’re looking outside for the causes of fear or Peace, then we’re looking in the wrong place for the solution, too. That’s what makes it SEEM so hard to heal! We’re trying to do it by ourselves and we’re looking in the wrong place.

Looking within is the right place. And, looking within can seem scary when we don’t Love ourselves. Making Self-Love the #1 priority is a smart move. It’s not ego – it’s Spirit. Once I made Self-Love the priority in my life, everything else began to shift and it paid off really well for me.

We decide we’re going to shift.

We decide to Love ourselves, and then the shift comes, if only we can stop fighting it.
Life gets on track and in tune when we Love ourselves. Love heals all wounds. The time for us to rise and shine is now!

Awakening!

Saturday, January 19th, 2019

I AM focused on healing. I don’t have any problem telling anyone who’s interested that I’m actively working on my healing. 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 setbacks, and I often felt ashamed that I couldn’t seem to do better. As I’ve shared before, I felt like a spiritual failure.

Can you relate? Do you ever feel that, no matter what you do, you just can’t move further? I used to feel that way, and it was so frustrating! I was hitting the spiritual glass ceiling, and I just felt so confused by it.

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

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 the 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.

We have so much support from the invisible. Let’s accept it. Let’s ALLOW the healing to happen, and not get in the way of it anymore. Let’s stop affirming what we don’t want and don’t like, and start calling forth our deepest heart’s desire. Let’s make ourselves available to receive it.

Let’s truly allow ourselves to be learners without judgment, harvesting the Wisdom that we learn from making 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. 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! No more delays!

ANNOUNCEMENTS: Stay tuned! A major announcement is coming about a healing retreat at the beginning of Spring. Spring Clearing Retreat March 20 to 24 – with Lisa Natoli, Corinne Zupko, Jon Mundy, myself and more! Plus, Jon Mundy and I are offering our HOW TO CREATE & LEAD A WORKSHOP training which includes certification to lead my Forgive & Be Free Workshop! March 14 to 20 – details coming shortly!

Replace the Fear with Faith

Friday, January 18th, 2019

A friend of mine, who is a life coach, shared a list of fears that people might like help with. It’s a really good list. On the list are so many fears that I used to have – fears that really used to bother me, upset me, and motivate me to do all kinds of things — some of them helpful, and some of them not.

The list of fears is:

  1. Fear of Rejection – worried what others think of you
  2. Fear of Success – not sure you can keep it up if you do make it big
  3. Fear of Failure – it’s better not to try than fail
  4. Fear of Intimacy – do you stop yourself from getting close?
  5. Fear of Loneliness – eat, drink, binge watch Game of Thrones, repeat
  6. Fear of Loss – can’t bare to love because one day they will leave
  7. Fear of Change – you only feel safe when things stay exactly the same
  8. Fear of Being Judged – what will they say if you do, wear, think like that
  9. Fear of the Unknown – the devil you know is better than the devil you don’t
  10. Fear of Not Being Good Enough – deep down you’re afraid this is really true…

What I know to be true is this:

Behavior modification is not the method for healing the root cause of any of these fears.

Love is the method for healing the root cause of ALL of these fears. Self-Love is the fastest path to healing.

Love is what we are. When we consciously choose to invoke the Higher Holy Spirit Self to help us remember our true identity, then we’re gently led to the ways in which we can release all attachment to the false identity. When we release the blocks to Love, then Love is what is revealed and our perfection is clearly visible. Forgiveness is the way to release the blocks to Love.

In A Course in Miracles, Jesus tells us, “… the Holy Spirit is part of you … He is both God and you, as you are God and Him together.” T-16.III.5.

There you have it. Jesus is telling us that the Holy Spirit is part of us. The Holy Spirit is both God and us, as we are God and the Holy Spirit together.

Oneness. Unity.

Our willingness to accept it is ALL that’s required. This is our healing. Truly, there’s no other healing, only this willingness to accept the union that ALREADY IS.

The Holy Spirit, Who is part of us, will do the heavy lifting of figuring out how we can release all fears. We can relax and simply begin to choose Love and willingness.

The healing is happening now.
We don’t have to ask how.
Our only task is to stay focused on how we can extend Love.

And that’s why I do what I do, because I enjoy extending Love and sharing about it. I love when we join together for our healing. I LOVE IT! It’s always amazing and always beautiful.

Joining with others speeds our sense of healing and strengthens our sense of unity – that’s 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’ve certified or that I’m training – you can book a session on a donation basis with all the Counselors-in-Training and the ones who are certified set their own rates – look here: http://jenniferhadley.com/spiritual-counselors/

The folks who are in Masterful Living with me often start a relationship with one of these beautiful Spiritual Counselors. As we let go of the blocks to Love, we allow ourselves to be truly supported in a way that’s profoundly healing! Please make use of this great resource and replace the fear with faith!

Healing the Root Cause

Thursday, January 17th, 2019

I used to be so convinced that what other people did and didn’t do was the reason I was upset. It was always out of my control. I was a victim. Life was happening TO me, and I didn’t like it. One of the ways I could take back control was to be upset and blame others. I could drag them into my upset. One of the best gifts we can give ourselves this new year is to stop thinking that other people are ever the cause of how we feel.

Our feelings are the direct result of our thinking combined with our belief. If we don’t like being upset, we can choose again, and this time we can choose Love.

I really don’t like drama in my life, except on the stage or in the movies. If it’s on the stage, I love it! If it’s in my house, I don’t like it. However, as someone who used to get upset quite easily and all throughout my day, I’ve learned the difference it makes to be able to be masterful with my thinking.

I’ve learned the value of spiritual sovereignty. I’ve learned to accept the miraculous healing opportunities that are contained in the upset when I’m willing to take responsibility – instead of pushing them away and medicating them. It’s a very different way of living.

A Course in Miracles tells me: “I’m never upset for the reason I think.”

People read that Lesson year after year, and they don’t really apply it as the powerful healing tool. You’d be amazed at how many people who are ACIM students write to me and tell me how upset they are when there’s a problem with their password, their payment, their downloads, or some other technical glitch that happens in the world of online delivery systems. Sometimes people start their message with “I’m so upset that …”

The way of the ego world is to think we’re upset because of situations and circumstances, but the actual fact is that we are never upset because of the reasons we think, if we think the reasons have to do with this world.

Think of it this way – if every time you got upset when someone didn’t call you when they said they would, you’d never heal the real cause of the upset. The real cause is the meaning that you make of it – the story that you tell yourself. That story is going to be some version of:

I’m not good enough and that’s why they don’t call.
They don’t respect me …
I’m not lovable …
Something’s wrong with me …
I’m bad …
I’m not worth it…

If all you do is get upset, then the pattern actually becomes stronger and more intense – more OPPRESSIVE. Is that what you are hoping to bring into your life? MORE upset? More of a sense of lack and limitation? That’s what allowing yourself to energize the upset patterns gives you, every single time.

This is EXACTLY why I focus on healing the patterns at the level of cause – eliminating the root cause of the upset so that we can feel more free and experience a miraculous life!

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, on line or in writing! I love it! We have an awesome group of people who are doing the deep work!

Healing Is A Collaborative Adventure

Wednesday, January 16th, 2019

Yesterday, I had the good fortune to have a conversation with Jon Mundy on my Radio Show.  We were talking about the Power of Decision which is a potent teaching in A Course in Miracles that I did 3 episodes on back in 2017 and Jon’s got a new class coming up on the topic. I find this topic extremely inspiring for us as we’re starting off in this new year.

I Love A Course in Miracles! I find the teachings bring me great comfort and upliftment.

With having done nearly 380 episodes of my radio show, I’m still amazed at how inspired I am by A Course in Miracles. I never tire of the truth. It’s so liberating. I love that every time I pick up A Course in Miracles I find a treasure that is so familiar and another one that is less well known to me. It is the gift that keeps on giving.

What a great gift that blue book is. Filled with treasures.

The simplest statements carry so much power and Peace.

If you’re ever struggling to understand some part of it – or even to open it, then just ask Spirit to show you the way. That’s what Spirit is for.

One thing that Jesus tells is that’s so comforting is that we’re never alone. He’s always with us. Always. We can pretend we’re alone, but we never will be. Why pretend when it doesn’t make us happy?

He also tells us that we don’t even know what will make us happy so we can just stop thinking that we do.

Such practical advice!

And he offers us constant support if we will but lean upon him. Test it. Try it out. What have you got to lose?

Next time you feel alone, or bereft, or perhaps you wake up with a sense of dread, call out to Jesus and ask him to let you know that he’s with you and that you’re not alone.

The gift is when we can share the Light with others, when we can be of service to the Light, then our Light really shines! It lights us up from the inside!

“Do you not think the world needs peace as much as you do? Do you not want to give it to the world as much as you want to receive it? For unless you do, you will not receive it. If you want to have it of me, you must give it. Healing does not come from anyone else. You must accept guidance from within. The guidance must be what you want, or it will be meaningless to you. That is why healing is a collaborative venture. I can tell you what to do, but you must collaborate by believing that I know what you should do. Only then will your mind choose to follow me. Without this choice you could not be healed because you would have decided against healing, and this rejection of my decision for you makes healing impossible.” A Course in Miracles T-8.IV.4.

The ego often doesn’t like to be a follower, are you willing to follow the guidance of an ascended master who can see through all directions of time and space, whose consciousness is so clear that his life has inspired billions of people?

ACIM is both practical and lofty. That those two qualities can perfectly co-exist and in iambic pentameter. Sweet!

A Course in Miracles offers us the way to Peace in our own lives and Peace in the world. At a time when it seems like there’s a tremendous amount of insanity erupting in the world, let us focus on being the Peace we’d like to see in the world by changing our mind about the world. In this way we can be truly helpful.

Power of Decision

Tuesday, January 15th, 2019

Today on my Radio Show, my guest is Jon Mundy, and we’ll be talking about the Power of Decision. This is such a great topic for us at the beginning of the year. It’s a time for making impactful decisions that will set a trajectory of healing for the whole year.

One of the most powerful decisions I ever made was to take responsibility for my life, and for everything in it. A Course in Miracles has a section that’s a favorite of mine called, Responsibility for Sight. It says, right in that section, that taking responsibility for what we see and experience is the way to have Freedom, vision, happiness, and more.

It seems contradictory to believe that taking responsibility for everything could actually be liberating, but it is. Responsibility is different from blame. Blame has attitude, judgment, condemnation. Taking responsibility is about realizing that you are the dreamer of the dream. It’s about cultivating the ability to respond with LOVE. That’s a good skill to have! Being able to respond to everything with Love helps us to see that we are actually the dreamer of the dream. Love opens doors in our mind that have been closed a very long time.

“Response-ability” is more than I ever imagined it could be. I used to feel burdened by responsibility. Now I recognize that as a phase of spiritual immaturity. When I was convinced of my unworthiness i couldn’t bear to take responsibility for my choices and my decisions. I needed to be a “rebel.” Now, I see how valuable taking responsibility for everything that happens is. It’s a very powerful tool. So is keeping commitments and holding myself accountable – and it’s not easy. I don’t make it all of the time. And when I don’t, I get to practice compassion.

Do you give yourself room to wiggle out of your commitments?
Are you challenged to be disciplined and do what’s best for you?
Do you allow yourself to break your agreements just because you feel like it?

If you answered yes to any of those, and see that on a regular basis you are inconsistent, then the chances are you will mostly feel insecure and off-balance and you may not know why.

Most people who give themselves permission to break their agreements feel that others are untrustworthy. Interesting, huh?

We never have very far to look for the source of our challenges.

If there’s anything about your life or your unhappiness that you’re blaming others for – it’s time for a healing. It’s time to snap out of it. It’s time to make a higher choice.

You deserve to invest yourself in living your very best life, rather than coping with the insecurities and off-balance feelings that result from your inconsistency.

The wiggle wobble woes are always the result of choosing to give yourself wiggle room, wobble in your commitments and blame your woes on others.

You have the ability to respond to yourself and others with love. Exercise this response-ability and you’ll be amazed at how fast your life gets GOOD!

Now, that’s a GREAT decision!

Escaping the Prison of the Mind

Monday, January 14th, 2019

Many people wish for Peace of mind, or a sense of relief. They’re yearning to feel free – free from everything they don’t like and feel imprisoned by.

Freedom is a spiritual quality that’s part of our Divine Essence. It’s already our nature to experience and express Freedom. We have it at the level of mind, and then it becomes our experience. Even a prisoner of war in a foreign jail can find the Freedom in his mind, because that’s where it’s located.

A Course in Miracles teaches us, “When you are sad, know this need not be. Depression comes from a sense of being deprived of something you want and do not have. Remember that you are deprived of nothing except by your own decisions, and then decide otherwise.” T-4.IV.3.

When someone has a problem with obsessive-compulsive behavior or avoidance, they’ll often use willpower to make a change. There’s a sense of loss and lack, and the willpower is used to get control of ourselves.

Willpower is part of a plan of behavior modification that can be a helpful start when we’re feeling out of control, but it doesn’t heal the root cause of the behavior. Willpower only intensifies the deep craving that is the root cause of the problem.

All healing is at the level of the mind – NOT at the level of behavior.

If Love isn’t part of the plan for healing, there won’t be a healing, only a shift in behavior. That’s not enough.
If we don’t feel worthy of miraculous permanent healing, we might settle for willpower.

For true spiritual healing, we look to the mind for causation. There’s a false belief at the root cause of every issue. Most problems are an expression of belief in lack. How can willpower heal a belief in lack? It cannot.

The healing we’re looking for comes from opening to giving and receiving the Love that’s restorative and healing.

We resort to willpower when we feel spiritually weak. Willpower is a function of the personality and is born of a sense of separation and lack. Willingness is the willingness to choose Love, and to follow Spirit’s guidance.

Our willingness is ALL that’s required to have true and lasting transformation.

It seems so simple and, quite frankly, too easy, but neither is accurate.

When we’re craving, needing and wanting to satisfy that compulsion, we’re feeling deprived. The real craving is for union with Spirit.

In that moment of craving, we don’t have a connection with Spirit that lets us know we’re fully loved and held in perfect Wholeness. That knowing of our perfection is missing from our awareness.

Our willingness to Partner UP will heal the illusion of lack.

Only the willingness to see the union of all life brings lasting healing of the splitting the mind.

Even a little bit of willingness is instantaneous joining with Spirit, and that’s where our true and lasting healing is – in remembering our union with God and making that our top priority

Let’s make a real change this year. Let’s get out of the prison in our mind and live joy-fully!

Masterful Living Course 2019 Registration closes TODAY, Monday, January 14 at midnight Pacific.
Now is the time to lay your foundation – there’s so much that we can call forth when we choose to live as though our mind really is the Mind of God. Make this year the year you go for it! Gather support, have a strong intention. You don’t need my help, but if you’d like it, here’s how to begin:

A Year of Holy Relationships

Sunday, January 13th, 2019

I love A Course in Miracles because it’s a mind-training system that really works. It has really worked for me – and it continues to bring me benefits every day. And, right now, I feel such a deepening happening. A greater willingness than ever before is coming forth in my heart.

In the 5-Day Challenge this past week, I was talking about “surrender” being my word for the year. We had a whole conversation about what surrender meant. It means to give ones self over, to yield, and that can be vastly different experiences in different situations.

There’s surrender in a battle or fight, which is giving up and becoming under the power of another, and that could feel degrading
.
There’s surrender in a sexual sense – to give ones self over and surrendering to the melding of that intimacy and connection, which could feel absolutely blissful.

And then, there’s surrender to Spirit, which, to me, is a re-connection with Source, a return to perfection and right-mindedness – a giving up of the need to feel separate and special.

The word “surrender” is not in A Course in Miracles, and yet what I find so appealing right now is to surrender all the ways in which I keep separation going, to make a holy offering of them, and simply follow the instruction in A Course in Miracles, and to keep my attention on this intention.

In the last 10 years, I’ve connected with at least 50,000 people who are interested in ACIM. Many have been studying it far longer than I have, and yet I’ve received so many emails from people who have been studying ACIM between 10 and 30 years and they’re so excited because now they’re learning how to HOW to live A Course in Miracles and it’s such a difference.

Studying something and applying it are vastly different things.

Living it really does require that we surrender, or give up, the meaning we’ve made of things so we can realize what things are really for and discover the Peace and the Harmony that has always been there, just beyond our vain imaginings.

That’s what I’m interested in focusing on, surrendering the vain imaginings and and living the truth that sets us free. I’m inviting you to consider a new approach to your spiritual life this year. Consider focusing on living it, day by day, in a non-intellectual, truly heart-felt way. Studying the truth doesn’t set us free. Living the truth is liberation!

One of my favorite passages in the Course that lit me up when I first read it is this, (T-18.VII.4.)

This course … aims at saving time. You may be attempting to follow a very long road to the goal you have accepted. It is extremely difficult to reach Atonement by fighting against sin. Enormous effort is expended in the attempt to make holy what is hated and despised.

Nor is a lifetime of contemplation and long periods of meditation aimed at detachment from the body necessary. All such attempts will ultimately succeed because of their purpose.

Yet the means are tedious and very time consuming, for all of them look to the future for release from a state of present unworthiness and inadequacy.

Your way will be different, not in purpose but in means. A holy relationship is a means of saving time.

I love this passage because it reminds us that we’re already as holy as holy can be. We cannot become more holy. We’re already there, and we’ll know it if we’re willing to “release from a state of present unworthiness” now. This now. What’s the mechanism that helps us the most? Holy relationship as a spiritual practice.

Let’s make this the year of HOLY RELATIONSHIP.

Life becomes a truly beautiful journey when we call Spirit to make our relationships holy, and then actually allow it to be revealed to us. The transformation is so profoundly beautiful it’s breath-taking, in part because it’s available to ALL of us. It’s not only for some special monk on a mountaintop, it’s for everyone.

It took me a long time to realize that my willingness was often best demonstrated when I could surrender the need to be right and to make others wrong. Letting that need go, I could see how much I had cherished my separateness. I could feel how attached I was to the idea that I was unworthy of Love. I had to let go of my attachment to these beliefs about myself in order to see what’s available to all of us is our own perfection revealed in our minds.

And that awareness, that no matter how far we’d fallen in the past, no matter how unloving we’ve been in the past, that there is a great Love that is ours to share – is profoundly healing. Our willingness is all that’s required.

Consider Jenni, who lives in Ireland. I remember we spoke 1 on 1 right before Christmas at the end of 2016 (I have 1 on 1 check-in sessions throughout the year for those in Masterful Living with me – and here’s what she told me – (I had her write it down so I could share with you.)

Dear Jennifer,

Thank you so much for your invitation to join the most beautiful community and have the most transformative year of my Life! When I was reading other people’s testimonies this time last year, I was hesitant to believe that I could experience such miraculous things in my Life but I felt drawn to Masterful Living. Now that I have walked through this year with You all, I am just so incredibly grateful for how much amazing change has occurred. My therapist hadn’t seen me in a year and she was stunned and taken back at the difference in my Presence.

I feel so much lighter, happier, grateful and energetic. My body functions much better and I feel healthy and vibrant. I feel confident and successful. I feel so grateful to be alive every day and wake up excited for what a new day will bring. My attitude to Life has radically transformed. I am not so afraid and I relax more. I have faith now that I am supported, I am never alone and that I am able for anything life brings my way.

The transformation also shows on the outside – especially in my workplace. I was so stressed out and miserable in work and now I am so grateful for my job, I love my colleagues and I love my clients. I am open to receiving what my job does offer me and I am not so focused on what I think it lacks. This is such a relief and brings me so much Joy to be helpful instead of complaining all the time!

Doing the inner work has changed all areas of my Life – relationships with my parents, siblings, husband, friends and with my finances. I am so excited to continue with ML 2 and deepen my capacity for Love. I feel excited for the future, which used to scare me. I now know the goodness of Life. I now live in a world of possibilities instead of living in a world full of what I don’t have. Thank you thank you thank you for sharing the benefits of your healing with us all! This year has been the best year of my Life. Now, I love my Life and I am ready for next year to be even more loving!

Wishing you a Happy and Beautiful Christmas full of Joy and Receiving!

Love Love Love,
Jenni

I didn’t edit one word of that. That’s exactly as Jenni gave it to me.

AND – most importantly – a year before that, she didn’t feel confident she had what it took to change her life. One year prior, she was concerned that my Masterful Living wouldn’t work for her, that she didn’t have what it took, that she might give up or fail. Sound familiar?

Can you feel the POWER of an EFFECTIVE spiritual practice transforming Jenni’s life?

Studying spiritual teachings and living them are two different things. We’ve been talking about that this past week in the 5-Day Challenge.

We can study until we have memorized the teachings, but that won’t heal our relationships. I learned that the hard way. Ugh. I studied for 20 years and still felt unworthy!

When we’re actually willing to focus even a little attention on changing your mind throughout the day, your whole life begins to transform in miraculous ways. That’s the power of living it.

This is our year to really live it.

Even if we think we don’t have what it takes, we do, that’s the lesson I’ve learned, and Jenni’s learned and many of us are learning together.

Here’s the thing — Jenni didn’t do it on her own. She let Spirit in. And she got support from our community. She became more willing and more receptive and the support really made a difference for her, as it does for all of us.

We all have a lot more support available to us than we realize, and, unfortunately, many spiritual students are absolutely convinced that it’s better for them to do it on their own. This was a big issue for me and I see it in many.

Jenni invested herself in spiritual practice – some days more, some days less, but her spiritual practice is her whole life – it’s how she does everything – that’s what makes it so effective. And she knows that now.

I’ve known MANY people who meditate an hour a day and don’t have the kind of results in a decade that Jenni had in JUST ONE YEAR. Truly. Why? Because they’re not doing the mind-training during the day, when things come up and challenge them. And that’s what ACIM is all about – we must actually DO the work at the level of the mind, not just read about it. We don’t study ACIM, we live it in order to really walk the talk and live the Love.

It takes a village.
A holy relationship village.

I’ve learned that it really does make a HUGE difference when we have a community and that’s why I LOVE being part of a global community of like-minded souls. This past week during the 5-Day Challenge was a perfect example.

I’ve been in spiritual community for 30 years and I’ve never experienced anything like what we have in Masterful Living because we’re all focused on actively transforming, actively being loving, actively changing our minds. It’s a group energy.

The main thing I’d like you to take from this message today is that YOU have everything it takes within you. If you’re intent on transformation you will be transformed. That’s what it says in the passage I quoted earlier. If you’re intent on having healing you will be healed because the willingness is there. It’s miraculous! It blows my hair back again and again when I hear people’s miraculous stories!

And, remember that ACIM passage also says that many people take the long way around, when they don’t have to. There are expedient methods. That’s what we do when we apply the fundamentals of ACIM to really live it and embody it, the healing happens with amazing speed. Our joy returns.

Consider how MUCH transformation Jenni had in JUST ONE YEAR! It’s A LOT, and yet, I see people experience this year after year – (I’ve been offering Masterful Living for 11 years) spiraling upward. There’s no limit.

The main thing is to make a real change this year.

Masterful Living Course 2019 Registration closes TOMORROW, Monday, January 14 at midnight Pacific.
Now is the time to lay your foundation – there’s so much that we can call forth when we choose to live as though our mind really is the mind of God.  Make this year the year you go for it!  Gather support, have a strong intention.  You don’t need my help, but if you’d like it, here’s how to begin:

If Masterful Living is right for you, I trust you will know it when you read what I’ve written on my website.

Trust your intuition – it will not fail you.
If this feels like it MIGHT be the thing for you this year – follow through.

I would LOVE to have the opportunity to walk step-by-step with you this year if you’d like to join us!

BTW, most participants find that relationship healing is the #2 result they have during the year.

Really truly living it – and you don’t have to even own a copy of the book to learn to live it.

Take Out the Trash

Saturday, January 12th, 2019

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Quit complaining, criticizing and manipulating.
Look for opportunities to demonstrate your willingness to let it go.
It works!

And it’s so much easier than trying to figure out how to let it go.
Focus on the willingness, and Spirit will do the heavy lifting.

Willingness is central to an effective spiritual practice.
An effective spiritual practice is a mental trash removal system that works.

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

Changing our lives and healing our minds is so much easier when we are the two or more gathered together for the same purpose. We practice and learn Self-Love in Spiritual Community and it’s a powerful healing experience. It’s a living, loving, beautiful expression of Spirit’s Love.

You’re going to make a lot of choices this year.

Which of YOUR choices will actually improve the quality of every day for the rest of your life?

We’re entitled to miracles. One of the things I love so much about my Masterful Living Course is how excited people get when they realize they can stop repeating the past and life a life they really enjoy – it’s miraculous. People sometimes think that living a miraculous life is for other people, but not for them. People think that miracles are only for people who are special. It’s just not true.

Living A Life I Love

Monday, December 31st, 2018

With each passing year, I am ever more grateful for what I’ve learned and for what I’ve let go. This past year has been a time of seeing really old patterns of separation falling away. In many ways, I’ve felt like I’ve shed an old layer that just couldn’t feel comfortable anymore. I am so grateful to let it fall away!

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 direct knowing and insight.

I love the end of the old year and the beginning of the new, because each year I find I am spiraling up to a higher expression of Love and service.

I have a completely different experience of my challenges now. Challenges used to be SO INTENSE for me. I’d feel just stabbed in the gut, cut to the core with salt being rubbed in the wound, and it’s just not like that anymore. THANK YOU, GOD!

Challenges can be so intense, yet they each contain an amazing gift. We were talking about this in Masterful Living class this past week. Let’s pause to really appreciate what challenges are for. Let’s be grateful and harvest the learning!

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.

A Course in Miracles tells us everything in our life is “gently planned by One Whose only purpose is our good.” Accepting that as truth brings great relief from suffering, and it requires true willingness.

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. Eventually, we’ll accept the truth and welcome the miracles.

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 2019 will have a LOT for me to learn, to remember and to realize. There will be a great deal to be grateful for, and I’m excited for every bit of it. I’m glad we’ll be sharing this year together as Prayer Partners!

My Masterful Living Course helps people establish an effective spiritual practice. It’s not intellectual. It’s from the heart. This is what works to undo these chains that bind us to keep repeating the past.

No more wrong decisions!

Sunday, December 30th, 2018

I am grateful for the Holy Spirit’s ability to undo all the consequences of our wrong decisions. I am so grateful that Jesus let’s us know that we have this “get out of jail free” at the end of Chapter V in A Course in Miracles. Lord knows, I’ve made so many wrong decisions in my life.

And, I have suffered the consequences.
Now, I give all those consequences to the Holy Spirit for healing and it works!

In my journey through this life, I was taught to be excellent in terms of the ego thought system. Like everyone else, I succeeded at failing. When we succeed with the ego, we fail at Life and Love.

In this life, it’s always about how things work out in the end, at the final resolution. Most of the time, when things are presented to us we don’t know what they’re for and our interpretations are incorrect, because they’re based on false concepts and unresolved judgments.

The ego thought system has no way out. Only Spirit has a way out of this maze and haze of illusions. Only Spirit knows the way to perfect Peace and true happiness. Let’s rely upon the Knower Who Knows.

Fortunately that Knower Who Knows is the Christ, and it’s preinstalled.

Have you ever asked an “innocent” question and gotten back a tirade from someone’s ego?

Have you poked the bear’s guilt and gotten flattened by it?

I’ve been the bear and I’ve been the poker. Haven’t we all?

Underneath all of this is the ego design to implement the belief of separation. By Partnering UP with the Higher Holy Spirit Self, each and every day, I am unraveling the attachments to what I’ve learned. I work, every single day, with deep gratitude that I can see what’s left to do.

We learn things and then we treasure them.
We even learn how to make people feel bad, and then guiltily treasure the ability to apply it.

What’s been so helpful to me in unlearning the ego thought system, and undoing all the painful consequences, is actively looking to see the thoughts of separation in my mind.

I was thinking about this yesterday when one of my inspirational text messages arrived:
Healing is accomplished the instant the sufferer no longer sees any value in pain. ~ ACIM, M-5.I.1:1

Why would we value pain? We feel we deserve it. We punish ourselves to get out in front of the punishment of God the Father. It’s because of that ancient guilt we all keep alive. It’s the guilt that is in our minds for having valued separation more than Unity and Oneness.

It’s the guilt that we reenact every day when we choose thoughts of separation, such as:

What’s her problem?
I’m such an idiot.
He’ll never respect me.

Recognizing that anything I do to my brothers and sisters I do to myself and to Jesus is the way I undo the guilt of choosing separation. If I wish to be free, I must free my brothers and sisters from my thoughts about them.

Jesus taught it this way: What you do to the least of them, you do to Me.

Because all IS One.

Anytime we think ANYONE is less or more, then we’re affirming the learning of the ego thought system and it will always have painful results. There’s no way around that.

When we make ourselves the special victims of others, we’re twisting what could be Heaven into our own personal version of hell. And, we do it because of the guilt.

We can undo the guilt or affirm it.
We choose whom we will serve: ego or Spirit.

Working with Spirit, we can redeem our brothers and sisters, and ourselves. This is the way out of pain and suffering – and there really is no other way. We cannot go it alone, because Unity is the way out.

My Masterful Living Course helps people establish an effective spiritual practice. It’s not intellectual. It’s from the heart. This is what works to undo these chains that bind us to keep repeating the past.

We’ve all blamed people for ruining our happiness.

We’ve all fallen into ego traps of trying to find happiness in the world, but that’s not where it can be found. Any time we think that changing things in the world will make us happy, we’ve fallen into an ego trap. What makes us happy is being in loving alignment with Spirit.

When we are loving, we are fulfilling our purpose.
When we’re not being loving, we’re missing the opportunity we’re searching for, and it’s right in front of us, right inside of us, where it’s been all along.

As we step into this new year, let’s reboot into a more dedicated and devoted relationship with the Higher Holy Spirit Self. That’s the way to more Peace, more Love, and more Joy.

Instead of making new year’s resolutions, let’s set a high aspiration, and energize it every day by simply repeating it and keeping it fresh before us.

My aspiration is to be wholeheartedly loving.
My intention is to look for and make loving choices.
My goal is to shine and share the Love in a way that is profoundly inspiring and uplifting to myself and others.

In these ways, I live my purpose to be truly helpful.

Snarky

Saturday, December 29th, 2018

I used to offer the world a constant stream of snarky comments. It’s a defense against intimacy and connection. It’s a sign of insecurity. I’ve learned that the more secure I feel in God’s Love for me, the less I make sarcastic comments. Most of the time I don’t even think of them anymore.

I used to be SO tweaked by insecure people. Whenever I was around someone who acted in an insecure way, I would feel so uncomfortable I could hardly stand it. It took me a long time to realize why I was so bothered. Now, I get it.

#1 – I was bothered by my own judgments of insecure people. Myself, I was so insecure that the idea of hanging out with insecure people was more than I could handle. I was so completely rejecting my own insecurity, and so afraid of it, that I couldn’t handle anyone else’s insecurity.

#2 – Often, insecure people aren’t trustworthy because they don’t feel safe. They will do things out of fear, to protect themselves, and they can feel like a wildcard at times. Unpredictable.

However, I’ve since learned that offering compassion to insecure people is the way to go. Extending my heart even when they’re snarky and wearing their insecurity “on their sleeve.”

It’s easy to extend compassion now, because most insecure people (and this was me!!) don’t realize that the insecurity is coming from the inside, and so they’re trying to compensate for it by accomplishing things in the world, and that doesn’t work, so it just leads to an even greater insecurity. Ugh.

Again, the answer is compassion. Compassion is loving understanding and Love is the great healer. Love never fails. Forgiveness plays a great part, too. I had to forgive myself for ALL the years of unkind and snarky remarks that made my relationships so difficult.

Self-forgiveness is a great liberator. Don’t delay! Go for it today!

THIS WEEKEND: I’m offering my 3-part online workshop for everyone to come and get some lasting relief! It’s my gift to you – register now and bring a friend!

Grievances

Friday, December 28th, 2018

The world can engage us in grievances, but we can rise above that battlefield.  In our Masterful Living classes and Forgive & Be Free video workshops this past year, people had major breakthroughs by looking at all their relationship needs and wants, and transforming them in their hearts and minds from things that they felt were lacking, things that they felt they needed, into things they’d like and into the deep desires of their heart.

When we’re holding onto a grievances about something in our relationship, chances are we’re energizing that there’s a lack and a limitation.

If we’re pouring our thought and emotion into something whether we’d like it to be manifest, or to stop manifesting, it will keep it going. Jesus warns us about this in A Course in Miracles, in the Fear and Conflict section in Chapter II:

Everyone experiences fear. Yet it would take very little right thinking to realize why fear occurs. Few appreciate the real power of the mind, and no one remains fully aware of it all the time. However, if you hope to spare yourself from fear there are some things you must realize, and realize fully.

The mind is very powerful, and never loses its creative force.
It never sleeps.
Every instant it is creating.

It is hard to recognize that thought and belief combine into a power surge that can literally move mountains.

It appears at first glance that to believe such power about yourself is arrogant, but that is not the real reason you do not believe it.

You prefer to believe that your thoughts cannot exert real influence because you are actually afraid of them.

This may allay awareness of the guilt, but at the cost of perceiving the mind as impotent. If you believe that what you think is ineffectual you may cease to be afraid of it, but you are hardly likely to respect it.

There are no idle thoughts.

All thinking produces form at some level. T-2.VI.9.

I’ve reformatted this paragraph so that it stands out more. This is one of the major keys to understanding this world and our experience of it, and particularly our relationships!

Every thought we believe and choose to think has the full creative Power of God. That thought we’re thinking, the one where we think someone SHOULD be different or do something differently, that thought is an attack thought, and choosing to think it leaves us feeling guilty for attacking our brother and for attacking God.

This kind of thinking is what the illusion of separation is built out of. Hence, the guilt.

We are feeling helpless, hopeless, frightened, guilty, ashamed, jealous, hurt, angry, depressed, resentful, regretful, annoyed, disappointed, freaked out, worried and more, all because of thoughts like this.

And that’s why forgiving OURSELVES is the ONLY way out of this ego hell. This is the entire reason I feel so grateful and so compelled to be able to teach the classes I do – because they work. People actually get out of that hell they made and they stop looking back. Instead, they invest that energy into supporting everyone in their life in realizing that there is a great Love that we can all live more fully and completely. Hallelujah! Heaven IS at hand! Hell isn’t real!

We all have the Holy Spirit correcting us, leading us, guiding us and teaching us all of the time. We don’t need our loved ones to tell us what we’re doing wrong. Instead, let’s all join together in loving ourselves and each other. Appreciation and kindness, Love and compassion, these are the ways of Wisdom and release from suffering. We can practice them now. There’s an unlimited supply, and there’s no extra charge!

Getting Needs Met

Thursday, December 27th, 2018

This week,I got to do something I’ve not done before. I did my radio show on Christmas Day, and that was very special for me.  I  love the energy of Christmas – it feels so refreshing. My topic this week is The Holy Instant & Special Relationships, and it is such a big topic that I will probably do another episode on the topic.

These teachings are so healing, when we live them and apply them.  With the help of A Course in Miracles and the Higher Holy Spirit Self, we can realize that the ego thought system teaches us a false idea of what Love is.  The ego thought system is one that teaches us to look to ourselves to get our needs met.  It teaches us to NOT go to Spirit for what we need.
Think about how crazy that is!

We all share the one source – Spirit.  The ego thought system has this crazy, made-up idea that we’re supposed to get everything ourselves, and we must get it from the world, and/or try to manipulate others to give it to us.  Yet, the only way to really get anything worth having is to allow Spirit to move through us and to us.

All good comes from God, and we can learn to open up and receive the CONSTANT flow of goodness instead of blocking it by thinking we have to “make it happen.” Why is it all on us now? Because of the guilt we feel that comes from the belief that we’ve pushed God out of our heart. Every time we choose to judge and attack anyone, including ourselves, it reopens the wound of our feeling bad, wrong and unlovable.

This constant reaffirming of the guilt keeps us living in fear. This is why we seek out and settle for special Love relationships to substitute for God’s Love. And, this is also why all of our special relationships have fear laced through them all.

Living our lives thinking that we’re separate, and that we have to meet all of our own needs, just keeps the separation alive, and means we will always live in fear and feeling a great and constant sense of lack and limitation that can never be resolved or dissolved by the ego.

This is why people have so much profound healing in our Masterful Living Course and community. We are actively remembering our true identity and eliminating the habits that keep us living in lack and limitation.

Forgiving OURSELVES is the way out of this ego hell. That’s why I offer this online workshop for everyone to come and get some lasting relief! It’s my gift to you – register now and bring a friend!
