A Return to Love

Monday, August 20th, 2018

I don’t think there’s been anyone in my immediate family who has been as hostile, petulant, judgmental, passive-aggressive or down right mean as I have. I used to be utterly obnoxious at times. I would lose control and behave like a crazy person. And here’s how it’s ALL good. Now, I have so much compassion for myself and others when they aren’t being their normal loving self.

A parent once shared with me a mean comment that she heard one of her children say to the other. The comment was definitely intended to attack and hurt the parent, understandably, wanted to know how to discipline the child. My first thought was, if your child is being mean, they need some extra love not discipline.

I know that when I was behaving like a deranged monster, it was just a cry for Love. I truly didn’t know what else to do. Honestly, I was doing the only thing that made sense to me.

Of course I understand why my loved ones got angry with me and wanted to punish me to teach me that my behavior was unacceptable. They love me and they wished for me to learn to behave in ways that were acceptable. They also didn’t want to live with a crazy, mean person. Who does?

I’m so grateful that my family never gave up on me or kicked me out. I’m SO grateful.

What I’ve learned is that Love heals.

Love is patient, Love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking;
it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things; endures all things.
Love never ends.
Corinthians 4-8

Love is unconditional. As Shakespeare said so beautifully “Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds, nor bends with the remover to remove. It is an ever-fixed mark that looks on tempests and is never shaken.”

It might not be easy to love without conditions, but it’s definitely healing to everyone involved.

In this world, to be the happy learner, we absolutely must forgive everything. We must let all the beliefs go. We must surrender all of our interpretations and the meaning we’ve made of things. In other words, we must relinquish the hold we have on all that is false, all the stories we’ve made up and told.

Our mind IS the mind of God.
Whatever we hold in our mind will seem true to us whether it is true or not.

We cause trouble, and upset ourselves when we actively choose to believe that which isn’t true. Our happiness depends upon our willingness to value the truth above all else.

One thing many people do is they decide that people don’t love them or that we’re not lovable, or they’re not lovable. There’s such a strong tendency for people to make declarations that are limiting and just bring more sorrow, frustration, regret and resentment.

When we’re holding resentment it won’t end until we release the meaning we’ve made of things. That’s the only way out of that one. We can learn to relax our mind and have more patience. It is SO worth it.

We can accomplish so much with Love and nothing without it.

My practice of non-judment isn’t perfect yet, but one thing I know is to “love them anyway.”

Let’s remember to Love more fully and more consistently and let’s do it together!

Relief

Sunday, August 19th, 2018

I’m in Scottsdale, Arizona for the Teacher & Minister Training retreats with Jon Mundy and it’s been FULL on and so much fun! I feel so blessed to be able to do this work with others. For so long, I felt so much on my own.

One of the ways I experienced the pain of separation thinking was feeling that I was so much worse than my other spiritual friends. I see that play out for a lot of others. Often, one of the first things that happens for people on one of my retreats is the realization that they’re not the only one who feels that way.

So often, many of us feel that we’re worse than others and so many of us feel that we’re simply not truly lovable and so we have to present a false front. Then, of course, we don’t feel truly loved because we’re not being authentic.

It’s a journey to be able to be authentic!

How can we possibly be authentic and allow Love in, when we are identified with a false ego self that we don’t like? For myself, I was completely convinced that my ego personality was my true self. Like the Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde characters, I was convinced that Mr. Hyde was the real me that I had to keep hidden because he was capable of the worst kinds of crimes.

As I began to do the inner work that I now share in my Finding Freedom From Fear ACIM bootcamp classes, I began to discover that my true self was actually very loving and caring. The more I did the work of letting go the attraction to judging everything, and the habit of separating constantly, I began to feel more and more like my TRUE Self.

This was a HUGE relief. It’s SO very much easier to be our true self.
My true self was not mean, unkind, judgmental, attacking, hurtful, weak, sniveling, foolish or any other negative thing.

My true self is loving, compassionate, caring, open, available, harmonious and FREE. It’s such a relief to discover that and to let the LOVE in.

So often, when folks are showing up to do this inner healing work with me, they remind me of myself. I felt such deep inner pain that I was hiding from the world. I felt that it would come out “sideways” through tirades, or imploding into self-medication. I rarely felt that I was being authentic. I had a fear that if my “true” self was seen people would run screaming for the hills like they do from Mr. Hyde.

I had NO IDEA how much energy it took to keep my Mr. Hyde under control. It was that pain that was eating up my life and driving me to self-medicate.

I discovered that I had SO MUCH to learn about Love and that Love itself would teach me if I would let it. Love is the healer of all discord, and all suffering. I know that now. The ego cannot conceive of it or imagine it.

When I was identified with a small, selfish, and separate self, I couldn’t ever have believed that Love would heal my life. Loving myself and being in the flow of Love with others, that’s what did it. Being in the flow of Love with EVERYONE not just “my” loved ones.

In Masterful Living class the other day, we were deeply contemplating the karmic lessons that we’d learned in this lifetime. We were having breakout sessions and some of the men came back to the larger group having reached the conclusion that the main karmic lesson for them was remembering to Love.

It hit me so strongly! This is the topic for a one-time free class to follow up on the recent 5-day Challenge that we just did! Woo hoo!

For so, so long I resisted following my guidance. I was so reluctant to take even the most basic steps I knew to do. And that’s why I focus almost my entire energy now on supporting people who feel stuck playing small, living in the shadow, NOT following their guidance, feeling sick, and tired and who have a deep yearning.

It’s such a huge relief to be in the flow of Love after fighting it and feeling unworthy for so long. It’s such a huge relief to be ourselves and to never feel bad and wrong anymore. Remembering to Love is the way we get there.

Let’s remember to Love more fully and more consistently and let’s do it together!

Breakthrough

Saturday, August 18th, 2018

Wow! Yesterday at the Inspirational Writing Teacher & Minister Training we started having some beautiful breakthroughs! When we’re willing to let go of attacking ourselves, limiting ourselves, judging ourselves and hiding ourselves, the breakthroughs happen naturally! We’re blooming in the desert!

Like attracts like and we have such a gorgeous group of people to dive deeply. We’re cultivating an extraordinary willingness to leave the past behind and the healing is happening. I love being able to do this! And it’s wonderful to see how Love breaks out all over – healing us now.

Love is our healer because Love is our natural state.
When we remember to Love then the healing starts happening immediately.

For myself, there were many times when I would intentionally resist being loving. I was withholding Love.

Can you relate?

In recent years I’ve learned it’s really ALL about Love. And fortunately, we can choose to put our focus and attention on Love and bring forth a healing breakthrough every day. We really can.

I’m so inspired by the beautiful healing that’s been happening on this intensive retreat so far.

I’m excited to be able to share the love and healing and continue the momentum from our 5 Day Challenge.

I’m offering this class as a gift on Thursday – register now and you can join me live:

Live Your Calling, Part 3

Friday, August 17th, 2018

Part 1: Live Your Calling
Part 2: Live Your Calling, Part 2
Part 3: (You Are Here) Live Your Calling, Part 3

[This is part 3 of a 3 part series. Click here to read part 1]

One of the most challenging things for any spiritual student / light worker is when they don’t feel capable of standing in their power.

One of my favorite things to do is to help folks learn how stand in their power, and then choose to stop playing small and REALLY live their calling.

When ANY one of us is shining the Light, we always inspire more people to do the same. I have helped many people make the leap into being an effective spiritual counselor, minister and teacher because of my willingness to heal my own resistance and reluctance.

It takes courage to stand in your power. Your power IS the power of Love.

Love is God Power and we all have it. No one is without it. The question is, how to realize it.

When I first started my spiritual counseling practice I didn’t feel qualified to give anyone the kind of support I felt they deserved. After all, I was still struggling in SO MANY areas of my life – relationship, finances, career, and self-esteem.

Those are the four main topics all my clients came to me with.

I’m sure you can understand why I felt ill-qualified and ill-equipped to give counsel to people about the very same issues I was struggling with.

THIS IS SO IMPORTANT: I’ve learned that feeling unqualified is a VERY common thing for many people starting out. In fact, MOST people get discouraged and give up. This need not be.

Our history, our struggle can become the gold and diamonds in our crown of glory – that’s what I’ve seen for myself and others in class with me!

When I first started ministerial school I was told that statistics showed that almost ALL of the people in my class would not be ministering five years after we graduated. Crazy!!

So many light workers go through A LOT of training, but still don’t feel competent to live their calling. It doesn’t have to be like that.

Feeling confident and qualified is what I offer training in.

There’s an easier way, and I would love to help you find it.

And that’s precisely why I offer the level of support and the kind of training that I do. I won’t give up on you.

I’m pretty clear about seeing the greatness in everyone and I’m honored to help you see it too.

If you have a desire, I’ll help you find the fire to burn away the false beliefs and blocks that keep you playing small.

In counseling others about the very same issues I was challenged with, I learned so much and I healed so much and SO DID MY CLIENTS!

Miracles began breaking out ALL OVER my entire life!

That’s what I’d like to share with you. I’m so very grateful that I didn’t let my lack of experience and confidence get in the way of following my calling!

Why did miracles start breaking out all over my life and my client’s lives?

Because we were all willing to have a healing.

Because we were the two or more gathered in the name of Love for the purpose of healing.

Because we had strong intention even though we didn’t know exactly HOW the healing would unfold – we were willing.

I’ve learned so much about life, about Spirit, and about healing through counseling others to have healing in their lives. My heart opened up in ways I never imagined AND I stopped playing small. I am so grateful!

I had so many inner obstacles to overcome yet I was determined to stop playing small. I was sick of playing small!

I COULDN’T STAND IT ANOTHER DAY!

Now, I feel blessed to be able to support others who are interested in doing what I did. It’s time for all of us to stop playing small – and my Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive is designed to help you do that.

What’s unique about my program:
This is NOT about learning techniques. This is NOT an intellectual, academic program. This is a healing experience, that opens your heart, your mind and your intuition.

I know what used to block me from being successful – and how painful that was – so we really focus on eliminating the core issues. Healing the Self-esteem and self-doubt blocks are a key part of what makes this program so uplifting, inspiring and successful.

My goal for you is that you will walk away from this intensive feeling that you have made a life-changing shift. I know that sounds like a lot – but this is what TRUE spiritual counseling is all about – and of course, you must experience it for yourself so that you can honestly know that you can share it for your clients. In one week, you will gain great confidence, if you’re willing to stop playing small. You will become a more compassionate and loving person.

It’s so wonderful to work with people who are considering developing their counseling skills, alongside people who are professional therapists and coaches and who’ve been counseling for years. Working together, each one is having a breakthrough! It’s actually surprising how much we can accomplish in just one week – that’s why this training is an intensive.

For people who have been playing small for years to be able to take a giant leap forward in just one week is extraordinary – and it’s what my intensive is designed for.

Plus, I like to do our work in a beautiful environment and make it FUN! I like to laugh!

This Intensive is real work.
It’s INNER work.
Heart work.
Not intellectual, and that’s why most people have a really deep healing.

And it will be one of the most enjoyable time’s you’ve given yourself – at least according to those who have participated so far.

We’ll get to core issues and have real healing and release. This could be the very thing you’ve been looking for.

I’ve been thrilled with the results that people are having since taking my Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive and I cannot wait for the next one. I can honestly say that this is one of my FAVORITE things to do and it’s one where I feel I’m being of the greatest service.

In my Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive, the main thing we work on is eliminating worthiness issues so that people can live their calling, help more people, be more prosperous and share their gifts and talents in ways that are profoundly healing to themselves and others.

My next Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive is October 8th-14th.

This intensive training is for you if:
you have an interest in seeing if spiritual counseling is a possible career for you
you’d like to improve your counseling and compassionate listening skills
you’d just like to build your confidence and Self-esteem
you’d like to increase your intuition
you’d like to get continuing education or licensing units

Here are some of the things that people who took my training said after only a couple of months:

“Attending the Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive was a dream for me. It was deeply healing, joyous, expansive and inspiring. The momentum I am experiencing post-intensive is miraculous. I have attracted clients and found that so many people are interested in living peaceful, loving lives and I get to hold sacred space for them! It has been such a gift. Feeling so positive about my work as a spiritual counselor has spilled over into my relationships and my overall sense of well being. I feel free, happy and fulfilled. Ease and grace are all around and the tremendous, loving support from the other members of the training is beautiful. I feel much closer to achieving my life aspirations. I highly attest to the power of this training and know that it does affirm and activate a deeper, richer connection to Spirit.” Angela Potts-Mang’andah, Teacher  

“My experience attending Jennifer Hadley’s Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive was the best thing I’ve done since childbirth. It allowed me to immerse myself into spiritual practice for an entire week in a breathtakingly beautiful location. This expanded and continues to expand my awareness and my compassion for myself and others. My emotional growth since attending this program has been so healing. Getting to spend time with Jennifer and the others was such a precious gift. To witness each other’s healing was so very intimate and I felt honored to be a part of it.”  Linda Soto, Conscious Joy Instructor

“I was very glad I went to the Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive. I am exploring alternatives to my current job and options for when my job eventually ends.  It was a beautiful location, wonderfully relaxing. The counseling itself, while simple, was quite effective.  Allowing myself to be led and guided to gently help the participant discover for themselves their own blockages, and to see them have insights to remove blocks and heal themselves was powerful.  It was a wonderful time of sharing, caring, healing, and empowerment.  I strongly recommend to anyone that has any guidance to take this spiritual counseling training, to listen and follow their inner guide.  I am sure you will be glad you did.” Philip Metzler, spiritual seeker

Letting Go of Hurtful Habits

Sunday, August 12th, 2018

We just came into a new moon yesterday – and a solar eclipse came with it. It’s a most powerful time to make some lasting changes. It’s the perfect time to take stock and release what doesn’t serve, and replace it with something that does.

In Spirit, we’re all one, and in many ways, as individuals we’re the same too. I’ve noticed that I’m an entrepreneur and sharing is my “thing.” I call spiritual entrepreneurs “Light-preneurs.” Day after day, I ask Spirit “what can I do to be more helpful.” I get answers every day. Much of the time it has to do with freeing my own heart and mind.

For so, so long I resisted following my guidance. I was so reluctant to take even the most basic steps I knew to do. And that’s why I focus almost my entire energy now on supporting people who feel stuck playing small, living in the shadow, NOT following their guidance, feeling sick, and tired and who have a deep yearning.

That was me: deep yearning, strong resistance.

It’s such a relief now to be able to really listen and follow. SUCH a relief. It’s like the difference between living in a small dirty and smoky room and living in the wide open spaces, the mountains covered with green and fields of flowers on a beautiful day.

As I write this, I can feel the sense-memory in my body, the feeling of tightness and despair. On a certain level, I so often felt like I was under siege, but I didn’t realize it was coming from inside me.

One of the things that was a huge part of that feeling of reluctance and resistance, the playing small, was my battle with Self-sabotage in the form of self-medication.

We all are aware of the sense of there being two selves. A Higher Holy Spirit Self and a lower, selfish, small self. I used to feel like they were in a constant battle. The easiest way for the small self to win was to decide to self-medicate.

When I’d self-medicate with food, alcohol, cigarettes, television, or talking on the phone excessively, it was as if I had made a decision to get on the PAIN TRAIN and ride it to the end – which was me falling into exhaustion, collapsing or passing out from excess. It was as though I had to go all the way to actually hurting myself before I could stop.

Doing this thousands of times over the course of years, I learned a lot. It was a very extensive study of self-sabotage and self-medication. I was the lab rat.

For years it felt demoralizing. I did my self-medication mostly in private, alone and ashamed because it didn’t feel very spiritual.

I felt so ashamed that I didn’t have more discipline.

When I did have more discipline I’d choose to self-medicate with over-working, exercising or volunteering. I didn’t feel ashamed when I went that route, but it still was still choosing to play small and live in a stuck place, resisting my natural spiritual growth.

The purpose of self-sabotage and self-medication is to slow down our spiritual growth and awakening. It does a really good job, but let’s not be fooled by it anymore.

Making a decision to do something different is the way out of the hell that is a habit of self-medication. I know this because that’s where I started.

I decided to stop self-medicating sooooooo many times without success. It didn’t work for me. I just felt more and more and MORE like a failure!

What worked for me was to decide to focus on simply making a little bit more loving choices. I decided to actually look at what was going on inside me without judging it, with compassion and kindness. That changed things for me.

Why? Because Love is compassion and understanding. And Love is ALWAYS healing. Actual Love is always healing. It helps return us to our natural state of mind which is already perfect.

Love is our healer.
I AM choosing Love.

And that’s why I am offering this gift of a 5 day challenge to look at what is really going on with ourselves, self-medication, self-sabotage and our spiritual growth and development. It’s my gift to you. Please come and participate – it’s the perfect time for us to ride that new moon solar eclipse energy into lasting change.

I’ll be inviting you to do some daily inner work with me – and it’s no cost, because I don’t wish to have anything get in the way of you activating your willingness to stop playing small, and deciding to let Love be the healer. Let’s let the Higher Holy Spirit Self do the heavy lifting of figuring out HOW the healing will happen. Let’s ALLOW the healing.

Be in it, to win it and we’ll do it together! A tiny bit of willingness is all that’s required.

There’s no charge to participate – we start tomorrow and if it calls to you, please join us and bring a friend who has this issue! We’re choosing healing TOGETHER!

Pain of Personal Sabotage

Friday, August 10th, 2018

No pain no gain is understandable in exercising. I’ve experienced the benefits of learning how to tell beneficial pain in a workout and pain that is a signal that there’s damage occurring.

When we’re having a spiritual workout – repatterning and recalibrating to a more loving life, there can seem to be the pain of going contrary to the ego’s thought patterns. That can seem excruciating on a mental and emotional level. I’ve experienced a lot of that.

I’m preparing for this 5 Day Challenge To End My Self-Sabotage and self-medication on Monday. This is a gift to anyone who would like to participate with us. I’ve been thinking a lot about my personal journey with self-medication and how deeply painful it was for me for so long.

I honestly never thought it would or could end. It seemed so much a part of who I was and how I lived. To me, it’s a miracle that all that is done.

I can remember times when I would feel so compelled to self-medicate, already feeling and knowing that it would take me to an even darker place than I was already in. I had so much self-judgment and yet I felt I couldn’t stop myself and I didn’t want to. I just felt this was the best choice I could find in that moment.

What a place to be.
I spent a lot of time there.

I’m continuously asking Spirit how I can be more helpful to people. Basically, I really don’t care that much about what I teach as long as it’s related to spiritual living. The topic doesn’t matter at all. I’ll share something and I’ll learn something and also receive a healing in the process. It’s always good for me.

So, it came to me about 2 weeks ago that it would be very helpful to people who are feeling the same sticky stuckness and that I used to feel about self-medication and self-sabotage.

Did you know that the purpose of self-sabotage is to slow down your spiritual growth? That’s right!

A lot of times, when I would feel most compulsive about self-medicating it was when I had just done something that was really high vibration. I couldn’t stand it. I felt I had to bring my vibration down, but I didn’t even know it.

That’s one of the reasons why I like to do longer retreats. It gives people an opportunity to maintain the higher vibration and recalibrate to a higher level. It really works! A lot of healing happens this way.

For me, studying spiritual principle, just talking about it and reading about it, that’s not healing. Information isn’t liberating, KNOWING the truth is.

Yesterday, I was at a yoga class and the teacher was saying that everybody has a lot of pain. I don’t anymore. I have issues I’m working on, but they’re not painful to me. I have minor frustrations and irritations. There are things that I wish were different, but there’s no pain around any of it. I am so grateful that all of the energy that I’ve put into looking within, working with the Higher Holy Spirit Self, the angels and Ascended Masters has all paid off. 21 years of praying with prayer partners has brought so many breakthroughs.

We don’t have to suffer. Suffering is optional. We can release the causes of pain, for real! Let’s do everything we can to demonstrate this to the world and live a pain free life!

Are you in?

STARTS MONDAY: I’m announcing a new FREE 5 Day Challenge program to end the self-sabotage of self-medication. Check out this free gift – click here to register now and join me on Monday!

God Isn’t A Racist

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

I was listening to a news report about what appears to be efforts to have enforced racism in the United States and particularly a report of many things the President has done over the years that indicate he might be racist in his views. As the list, went on I suddenly started to cry which surprised me.

My tears were a sudden empathetic response to how it would feel, and how much energy it would take, to maintain those views. Higher Holy Spirit Self said “God is not a racist.” And I almost laughed. I remembered that everything I see on the screen of life, I have the power to know the truth about. That’s my job. I work for God, Inc.

The very idea that God could be racist is laughable.

It must take a HUGE amount of life-force energy to be ultra religious AND a racist.

There are false constructs, such as racism, sexism, agism, that people agree to. The antidote is to value the truth and call for the truth to be revealed.

The truth is the same for all beings.
There are no personal versions of the truth.
Truth is constant and truth is healing.

As part of my spiritual practice, rather than be bothered or upset when people are actively perpetuating things that aren’t true, “false facts,” fake media, etc. I don’t put my energy into reacting to it because I cannot believe that it has any real power. Instead, I call for the truth to be revealed. Heaven make it so!

ALL things work together for our good and there are no exceptions except in the opinion of the ego. This is the teaching of A Course in Miracles. This IS the teaching of Jesus and I’m with Jesus.

He also said, what you do to the least of them, you do to me. What a beautiful way to teach the unity of all life!

The truth is our liberator, let us call for the truth to be revealed in our heart and our mind and let it ripple out across the mind of all. Let’s start a tsunami of healing by calling for the truth to be revealed.

The truth isn’t that someone is right and someone else is wrong, the truth is that we are one and inseparable. All joined in Love, this is the truth. The truth IS being revealed. We allow it and don’t declare that any other thing is occurring. We let it be revealed. Let it be. Let it be. Let it be!

Developing Deep Compassion

Tuesday, August 7th, 2018

The first step in my spiritual growth journey was a recognition that I was sorely lacking in compassion. I felt so angry and defensive most of the time. I made my life hard for myself and others. I didn’t have any compassion for myself and I really didn’t have much for others either. It was tough times.

I set an intention to become compassionate. I made that decision and that’s when my life began to open up to Spirit.

I now know that compassion is loving understanding. When we choose Love, we choose our own healing. When we choose compassion we’re choosing to be a healing presence AND to be healed ourselves. I’ve proven this in my own life.

Being able to be actively compassionate with ourselves and others is life-changing and life-healing. I’m going to discuss developing deep compassion in my radio show today!

I encourage you to set the intention to be more compassionate with yourself and with others in order to have the maximum healing experience every day of your life!

True Sight

Monday, August 6th, 2018

One thing I’ve noticed is that we don’t see what we cannot see. I used to get so annoyed with people because they weren’t observing what, to me, was so obvious.

It was frustrating to me that people couldn’t get that things – all kinds of things – that seemed so completely obvious and “in your face” apparent. It seemed to me just plain willful ignorance.

Now, I’m able to realize that we just cannot see what we’re not a vibrational match for.

For instance, some people can see so many ways and opportunities to be helpful, and they can tell whether it’s their call to do something or let it be and hold the high watch.

Some people can see that people are challenged and can use some encouragement, and some people just see someone in their way.

Some people can see that someone is being so very kind and helpful to a stranger and others won’t even notice what’s occurring.

This is what Jesus was referring to when he talked about having “the eyes to see and the ears to hear.” Our gifts and answered prayers can be right under our nose, but if we cannot recognize them, how would we know they’re there?

Many times when I’m working or writing intensely people can come in the room I’m in and start to do things for many minutes before they recognize I’m there. They’re startled by my presence. I can’t say for certain what it’s about, but I do feel there are times when I turn on a cloaking device in order to avoid being interrupted and many times people can’t even see me when I’m right there.

It’s a powerful and helpful skill to be able to recognize what’s going on around us, without getting caught in the difficulties people are having. I won’t join people in worry and upset. And I’ve learned when to offer a hand, and when not to.

Cultivating the ability to discern what’s really going on is VERY worthwhile. It comes naturally when we’re willing to give up all attachment to judging and labeling. It’s a magnificent trade – opinion for truth! Let’s begin today!

Life More Enjoyable

Saturday, August 4th, 2018

Many, MANY times I’ve had counseling clients or folks in my classes tell me that someone in their life has really difficult energy to be around and it brings them down to be with them. I used to feel the same way about some of the people in my life.

What I’ve learned over the years is that it was never those people’s energy that was my challenge. The real challenge was my thoughts about those people.

It turns out that my judgments about the people were what brought my energy down.

Now, while I do occasionally experience some people as challenging, or less enjoyable to be around – they don’t bring my energy down because I can hold them in the light no matter how they behave.

This is the gift of Peace that I’ve given myself and can share with others.

Consider someone that seems to bother you. Now, consider this a challenge from me to you – next time you’re with them, be super mindful of holding them in the Light of Love rather than judging them and see if they still bring you down.

This is something that you can practice and rehearse. In your mind’s eye, imagine being able to hold the peaceful mind no matter what.

Folks who seem to challenge us are actually helping us to be more loving. Let’s take the challenge and hold it with ease and grace.

Let’s be peacekeepers! Are you willing?

Cure for Abandonment Issues

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

All kinds of folks have abandonment issues that get triggered in all kinds of situations. Sometimes when they least expect it. It can be so distracting and derailing when it comes out of the blue.

There’s a sense that many people feel there’s nothing they can do about these abandonment fears. The best they can come up with is to manage and cope with it.

Managing and coping strategies are better than nothing, but I can’t settle for that when I’ve seen and experienced so much miraculous healing.

As a spiritual counselor, I’ve worked with folks who have sabotaged relationships because they had intense abandonment issues and they feel more comfortable pushing the person away than becoming REALLY close to someone and feeling afraid that now that person is going to abandon them.

It’s all part of a larger pattern of projecting onto God that “he” abandoned us. When we know, deep down, that we’re the ones that edged God out.

And, all of it can be healed! Yay! That’s what I’m going to share about on my radio show.

Have you ever sabotaged a relationship rather than risk getting closer and then having them abandon or reject you? Can you relate?

Let the Love Flow!

Monday, July 30th, 2018

What’s the greatest feeling in the world? For me, it’s when I can feel that my experience of Love is true, honest and full-on. It’s so wonderful when we ALLOW ourselves to simply Love someone without condition, without opinion, without control and manipulation. It’s thrilling to be able to offer a gift of Love and have ZERO attachments, and to feel that gift is fully accepted in the way it was intended. That’s a pure experience of Love connection.

Often in our relationships we feel that the connection is being lost, that we don’t understand Love, or we have a misguided idea of what Love is. So often we desire a truly loving, healed and holy relationship and just seems to elude us. What can we do?

One of the things I used to notice all the time was that I would feel either reluctant to express Love, or resistant to receive Love. Many of us have frequent experiences of feeling that Love has strings attached, or that someone is giving us something with conditions. If we truly desire to have healthy relationships and move out of co-dependency then it can feel icky to be in a conditional, giving to get relationship situation.

Our true nature is to BE the Love that is available to be expressed and revealed, felt and shared NOW. It can take getting used to, and it’s SO worth it!

I invite you to practice noticing when you feel a resistance or reluctance to be in the free flow of Love and to open your awareness to the highest choice that is available to you. This is how we transform the old patterns of history and ancestry and move into the fullest experience of Love that’s available to us NOW. It takes a willingness to have a new experience and not know exactly how it’s going to go NOW.

In this way, we learn to trust LOVE itself. We learn how to BE the Loving expression of our Divinity, NOW.

Love reboots the circuits and purifies the inner pathways. Gratitude opens the flow of good. Forgiveness opens the flow of prosperity.

Right now, let’s make the commitment to be willing to have a new experience every day – to cultivate a sense of security that comes from BEING our true selves, rather than being protective and defensive. I’m with you. Let’s do it together.

I’m grateful that I can have a new experience of Love and experience a healing. I share the benefits with all beings, so grateful to be One with ALL. That’s greatness!

I AM One with the One who Invented Love and so are you. Our story is a Love story!

If you’re aware that you feel resistance to Love – know that this is your opportunity to claim your healing. Claim it boldly for your Freedom. If you’re willing to let the resistance go – declare it in the comment section below and I’ll stand with you!

Being Lifted Up

Sunday, July 29th, 2018

When I was in the prayer practitioner training at Agape back in the 90’s I had a realization that really changed how I lived every single day of my life.

Catch this: I realized that if I didn’t judge myself for my errors, but instead, could have loving compassion for myself, then there’d be more love expressed in the world BECAUSE I made an error – and that was good and beneficial for ALL beings!

Choosing to have compassion for myself, meant that I wasn’t judging myself. There’s no way to be in judgment of myself AND also hold myself in Love simultaneously. By choosing to stop judging myself, and instead to extend loving understanding to myself, I was learning how to live without taking offense and then no forgiveness was necessary.

This is Freedom.

And this was how I began to practice forgiveness AS non-judgment. When there’s no judgment, no forgiveness is necessary and life is MUCH easier. This way we can stay in our loving hearts and there’s no back tracking to clean up a mess. I really like that.

Plus, it’s much more peaceful. Easier on the nerves. More productive.

It was around this same time that people began to say things to me like “you’re so full of light.” I would look around to see who they were talking to, because I knew it couldn’t possibly be me.

Full of Light? Me? Nah.

I remember saying to my BFF, “can you believe people are saying I’m a real light in the world? That’s so crazy.”

And she said to me, “Yeah, Jennifer, you ARE a light in this world.”

Who? Me? What?

More and more people began to comment on how light-filled I was. I knew then as I know now, that it was because of this practice of non-judgment. It was because every day I had the opportunity to turn my seeming errors into successes.

And every day, more Love was being expressed in the world because I made the error.

For instance, let’s say I’m going somewhere and all of a sudden it starts to pour rain and I don’t have an umbrella and now I’m running into all kinds of issues and I’m going to be late and show up all soaking wet too. I didn’t check the weather, didn’t plan ahead and now I’m in the soup. I call this a “tactical error.”

When there’s a tactical error I say to myself, “well, here’s a good learning for me. I’m a life-long learner, so this is helpful to me. Next time, I’ll do know to do it differently and have a more desirable result. This is a good thing. I’ve learned something.”

No judgment.
No attack.
No complaint.
No problem – only learning, compassion and understanding.

I realize now that this was the beginning of my becoming a teacher. I was embodying my Higher Holy Spirit Self – the knower who knows – my inner teacher and guide.

I found that I was SO VERY grateful that I could choose to be loving with myself instead of tearing myself down. I began to look for more and more opportunities to be kind to myself and others.

This was a big change for me because I had been a dedicated grievance and grudge holder. I literally thought it was my moral responsibility to never forget the insults and injuries and to wear them in my energetic field like a warrior who has scars on their body and chinks in their armor.

I’d been living as a grudge holder for so long that I had completely lost track of how much energy it took. What changed things for me was I began to realize that just as I had learned to not attack myself for my tactical errors, when others made errors such as being rude, unkind or thoughtless, I could go first with kindness and compassion and help them come back to their right mind by not judging them, and by not taking offense. I liked that so much more than tearing them down and attacking them.

In this practice with others, just as with myself, I learned that it’s so much easier and faster to heal when I take full responsibility for my choices and for everything around me. Then I can extend compassion to all and harvest the learning from everything.

What naturally began to occur is that the sense I’d had for so long of feeling like a fake began to disappear and then it went, never to return. WOW!

I’ve learned so much that has empowered me to share with others, to offer classes, workshops and retreats, to be a spiritual counselor to others and to write this daily inspiration.

I used to wonder how the heck would I be able to really follow my calling. It felt so completely daunting because I was caught up in the “how would it unfold in the world of form.” I didn’t think I had the resources.

I had a lot of debt. I wasn’t good at earning money. I was still self-medicating intensely.

And then my prayer that the way be shown to me was answered by my reading something Jesus said when he walked the earth. He said:

If I be lifted up, I draw all unto me.

Suddenly, I heard what he meant. I realized that this was the answer to my prayers!

Instead of focusing on how to make this ministry happen in the world, I turned my attention to the inner lifting up. I put my focus on taking out the trash in my belief system – that old B.S. – and practicing forgiveness and compassion, kindness and generosity, patience and Peace.

I began to feel the lifting up happening, the old patterns fell away, the way began to clear and things were brought to me and offered to me.

I began to see opportunities that I wasn’t available to before because I wasn’t a vibrational match. Instead of criticizing others, I began to extend my heart to them and offer them a blessing – and the whole universe began to do the same with me. it was a true turning and transformation.

I no longer felt like a fake anymore, because I wasn’t faking. I was being more loving and compassionate with each day – even when I fell down and forgot, I could pick myself up with Love and compassion and immediately be back on track.

I developed humility.
And I learned that humility is the key that opens the door to awakening.

Elders

Saturday, July 28th, 2018

I love being with wise elders. I’m at the Sunray Peace Village Elder’s Gathering in Vermont, a 3 day event that they’ve been doing for 34 years, gathering elders from many nations – Native American and indigenous elders from other countries as well. It’s a lot of fun!

One of the elders said today, our creator loves diversity. Just look at all the different kinds of trees, and birds and everywhere we look in nature is this endless display of diversity. I love diversity and I find it comforting. It’s one of the reasons why I love these Elders Gatherings – everyone looks and sounds so different, but the hearts feel the same.

I love that the days are filled with SO MUCH gratitude to our creator, for our life, for the good in our life, for the food, the weather, and the opportunity to be together.

It takes MANY people working many long days in order to pull this event off. (I would love to share pictures, but the best parts are not to be photographed, they’re to be experienced.) Some of us are doing things we’ve never done before, some of us are trying out our talents and gifts.

We’re almost always outside all day and I love that.

I love to see the wise Elders being respected and listened to. They have SO MUCH to share that’s helpful. I spent as much time as I could with my grandparents and I really enjoyed listening to them. To me, people are so much more interesting than movies, books or television. For me, there’s nothing more interesting than a good conversation that leads to a new understanding of the beauty of life.

It’s so powerful to see how affecting it is to us all to be able to bask in the teachings of these ones and to remember the native ways of viewing the world.

I notice that I’ve become increasingly disinterested in movies, books and television unless they’re sharing truth and insight. Most stories aren’t interesting to me at all anymore. If I can’t feel the heart, it feels dull.

Being able to speak, write and teach in a way that touches hearts is a powerful and beautiful thing. It’s really so much fun!

In this world of extraordinary diversity, who are the wise elders that you most admire and listen to?

Letting Our Light Shine!

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018

If we don’t use our gifts and talents do we lose them? Or do they just lay dormant? Certainly we’ll be missing wonderful and fulfilling opportunities to be an authentic, inspiring and healing presence in the world if we don’t shine our light.

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

How do we cause our personal nature and our spiritual nature to live together as one? For me, it’s ALL about staying focused on making loving choices. When I’m focused on making loving choices I’m aligned with Spirit and I’m not judging, not creating difficulties for myself and others.

Today I choose to be willing to use what I have.

So many people want more, but they don’t appreciate and make use of what they have. Let’s all be willing to look at ourselves from a Divine perspective.

Think about things from a higher, spiritual perspective:

Would you be willing to give to someone more riches and rewards if they didn’t appreciate and make use of the ones they had? Wouldn’t that be a waste?

Do you have the ability to be kind? Do you have the ability to forgive? Are you a good listener? Do you have an opportunity to be generous or helpful? Go for it! Let’s use the opportunities we have to extend Love and make our life more fully loving! Let’s go for it!

Can you think of a gift or talent that you have that you’re letting lay dormant? What is it?

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!

Me, Michael & the Bear!

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

If you’ve been reading my Daily Shot of Spiritual Espresso for a while, then you might recall my experience with a bear when I was camping last summer. It was pretty funny. Well, I had another one this weekend!

Last year, I was recording the daily prayer in my tent late at night, when, as I’m praying, I hear these very heavy footsteps with twigs snapping underneath, moving towards my tent. I stopped praying and paused the recording.

I’m listening to what I absolutely know is a bear, get closer and closer to my tent. When you can hear a bear a few feet away, a tent isn’t any protection – after all, it’s not made of titanium.

I googled “bears in vermont” to see what kind of bears there are in vermont and what do they eat. It turns out that they’re black bears and they really only wish to eat your food, and leave you alone.

Fortunately I know better than to keep ANY food in my tent or even to eat food in my tent. I don’t do it. After about 8 minutes the bear ambled away and I finished the prayer recording and went to bed and slept like a sweet baby bear all snuggled up in my bed.

Well, last night about 3am I woke and heard the bear walking toward my tent again. I’m in the same spot as I was last year here at the Sunray Peace Village in Lincoln, Vermont. Those heavy footsteps were getting closer and closer – so close – too close for comfort. I wasn’t afraid, per se, but I was concerned. I knew I didn’t have anything the bear wanted, but I’d just as soon not have a closer encounter.

When the bear got to about 10 feet from the tent, that was it. I called to Archangel Michael and the angels of protection and I said “I’m giving this one to you – please protect me.” I heard one more footstep and then nothing. Absolutely nothing. I never heard the bear even walk away. Just stillness.

I fell right back to sleep. Amazing!

What I’ve learned is that if I don’t project that there’s something to be afraid of, there really isn’t. That’s SO valuable.

Also, Love is my protector. I love that bear, the bear is one with me and I’m one with the bear. We’re in agreement because we share the same mind. I know I’m safe, and so does the bear. We’re good.

Peace In the Family

Sunday, July 22nd, 2018

There are more and more people who are doing this healing work at the level of the mind and experiencing benefits that amaze them. Yes, it’s always astounding when people have physical healing as a result of the work we’re doing in the retreats and classes. It’s absolutely wonderful.

AND what is MUCH more powerful and miraculous to me is when families have healing because one person decides to do the practice. I’ve seen this in my own family.

My family used to think it was okay to pick on each other, make sarcastic belittling remarks, and just become cold and withholding of Love. That’s how things were in my family. It was normal. And still I felt that we had a very loving family. The Love was real and palpable, but there was a lot of dysfunctional behavior.

I don’t take credit for the changes we’ve had, but I know for a fact that things changed when I changed. We stopped the bickering and the unkind remarks. We stopped dumping on each other.

Here’s what changed:

First, I made the decision to love myself.

Out of learning to really love myself I realized that the absolute worst thing I can do to myself is to fight with my loved ones and withhold Love. That is the most painful thing I can inflict on myself, so I decided to find a better way and practice it.

Making the commitment to be loving opened up all the good in my life and allowed me to finally learn to love myself, and that was profoundly healing and transformational.

Second, I decided to stop trying to manage, control and manipulate things.

I realized that by trying to manage, control and manipulate things I was placing my trust and faith in my own opinions and judgements, which, I also realized in’t the way to experience the most Love and Light.

I had to be willing to stop managing, controlling and manipulating things before I could be willing to place my trust and faith in Love, in Spirit. I had to let go of my mental and emotional grip on things in order to be able to even consider having faith and trust in Spirit. This change taught me faith at the deepest levels and transformed my life.

Third, I made the commitment to share the benefits with everyone.

Adding this simple phrase “I share the benefits with everyone because I am one with them.” and repeating it many times a day in many prayers really turbo charged by ability to see, feel, know and recognize the unity of all life.

Jesus said, “what you do to the least of them, you do to me.”

In other words, we are one.
If we cannot recognize that what we do to the least of them
we do to ourselves,
maybe we can recognize that we do it to Jesus,
and if we love Jesus,
then don’t do it to them,
because when we do it to them,
we do it to Jesus,
we do it to all.
There is only one.

In an awareness of unity there are no problems and nothing to heal. The separation never occurred.

These are three critical shifts and changes that I made and they transformed EVERYTHING in my life. Nothing was left out of the transformation because the healing was at the level of the mind.

What’s wonderful is that I used to feel that it was so far out of reach for me to create a successful ministry, and yet I yearned to be able to have ministry as my life and my profession. It felt so far away from me and what I could accomplish – until I put Spirit in charge.

And now, that’s what I share with others so they can do it too.

I healed my own life (still healing, of course) and that’s what qualified me and empowered me to share with others. Not something I read in a book or heard someone say, but what I lived and shared. All are called to be a healing presence – and God will qualify us if we allow it.

There’s so much benefit that emerges when one person in a family decides to be that fulcrum point of healing – that point of change in their family. I’ve seen so many folks in Masterful Living and Finding Freedom classes profoundly shift the dynamics of their relationships. Principle works when we apply it. It’s so much easier to do when we support each other in spiritual community and do the work together.

More and more I see the people who are succeeding in healing their lives, families, relationships, finances and more are feeling a call to teaching, ministry and sharing like I have. Spirit is leading me to create a Minister & Teacher Program for people who feel called to really live and teach how to live a miraculous healing life and be truly helpful.

It was so challenging for me to get started and to overcome the obstacles in my own mind. I’d like to make it a WHOLE LOT easier for others to do.

Spirit Makes The Way

Friday, July 20th, 2018

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

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

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

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

In truth, there’s only one way, and that way is God’s way. Let’s all get off the pain train and jump on board the Love Train. Let’s not wait until the pain is squeezing us so hard we just wish we were dead. Let’s simply put Spirit in charge and allow the miracles to unfold. Let’s get out of the way. And let’s get on with it and do what we’re here to do – Love ourselves and each other.
“Wherever [the Holy Spirit] looks He sees Himself, and because He is united He offers the whole Kingdom always. This is the one message God gave to Him and for which He must speak, because that is what He is. The peace of God lies in that message, and so the peace of God lies in you. The great peace of the Kingdom shines in your mind forever, but it must shine outward to make you aware of it.A Course in Miracles, T-6.II.12.

Let’s join together to shine the light outward in order to see it more clearly!

Prove God

Sunday, July 15th, 2018

A week ago I wrote my Sunday Shot of Spiritual Espresso about Replacing Doubt with Faith.

Like most people, my life has been a series of wake-up calls. Especially as I became an Agape Licensed Spiritual Practitioner and then a minister. Wow! I really began to see where I was deluding myself!

I am so grateful that all of my prayer and strong intention to awaken paid off. I started to discover all of the MANY ways in which I had placed my faith in the world and in my own opinions, impressions and understandings rather than in Spirit.

I also was able to realize that while I’d been teaching the spiritual Law of Cause & Effect, and I understood it intellectually, I really wasn’t living as though I understood it. I was still blaming other people for my feelings and trying to change THEM, rather than to change my mind about them. I still had SO MUCH self-forgiveness to do.

Being willing to cultivate the humility to admit that I had been teaching principles that I really wasn’t living, inspired me to live them. Cultivating humility is a precious way to turbo-charge our healing. It requires giving up any idea of less than or better than and recognizing only oneness and unity. I used to feel like a fake, but when I focused on cultivating humility, and valuing unity, that feeling of being a fake faded away.

There’s so much I didn’t learn in ministerial school or practitioner training and it’s why I’m so excited to be cultivating a training for ministers and teachers now.
My parents had raised me to be discerning and to trust my own judgment and that’s been helpful to me in my waking up process. The only thing is that there’s a big difference between trusting my judgment and trusting my intuition. Placing my faith in my judgments really didn’t help me.

There came a point when I realized it was time for me to give up trusting in my own perceptions. It was time for me to lay aside all that I worked so hard to cultivate in terms of my own accomplishment in the world and my own perceptions and opinions. It was time for me lay all my understandings, and everything I thought I knew, onto the altar in exchange for a higher understanding.

I’ve been disciplined in order to cultivate the ability to not identify with everything that was happening around me and stay tuned to the Higher Holy Spirit Self. I’m an empath so it was a huge reorientation of my life and my very being to learn how to feel what’s going on around me, but not identify with it. Phew! Perhaps some day I’ll teach a class in that!

We’re always putting our faith in something. Every minute we’re placing our faith in either Love and Spirit or our perceptions, opinions and projections. Where we place our faith determines the quality of our life. We’re either awakening to Spirit or shutting down to Love – and the choice of where we place our faith determines all.

Because we’re making the choice of where to place our faith in each moment, we’re also making a choice to awaken or hit the snooze button.

When we place our faith in our judgments we lose our Peace and we naturally get upset. Because our faith is misplaced, and we think we’re right, we think we’re upset because of what’s happening in the world, but we’re not. We’re actually upset because we’ve, yet AGAIN, placed our faith in ego judgment and mis-perception. Time for course correction! Choose Again.

Doubt is more pervasive than we recognize. Doubt manifests as the experience of lack, illness, depression, relationship challenges, career and creativity limitations and more.

Doubt is the cause and those are just some of it’s effects.

A Course in Miracles tells us that all doubt is self-doubt, but knowing that isn’t the same as eliminating it.

How many of us recognize that our challenges are really issues of doubt?
How many of us are willing, just willing, to recognize that the doubt is self-doubt?

Self-doubt inevitably leads to failure.
Faith in Spirit inevitably leads to success.
And yet, it’s challenging to fully trust God when we don’t fully trust ourselves.

We say we’re going to start our work out, or quit smoking, or give up sugar, or make that important phone call tomorrow. Then tomorrow comes and we don’t keep our agreements with ourselves and then we don’t feel trustworthy and we project it onto God.

In my classes we cultivate a practice of PROVING God.
When we prove spiritual principles work, then we are forever changed by it.
That’s how we start to have more tangible faith and more success in all areas of our life.
It really works and it’s so fulfilling!

I’m in Vermont now for the next few weeks, camping in the Green Mountains at the Sunray Peace Village. I love my tent, I love hearing the sounds of the birds so constant and close. I love the sun beginning to rise at 4:30am. I’ve even had bears sniffing around my tent as I was recording the prayer for the next day! You can picture me trying to google on my phone what kind of bears are in Vermont and what do they eat! Thank God for cell service. (Fortunately, these bears are only looking for food and I don’t have any in my tent.)

The other day I had a really cool experience. I had in my mind to have salad and salmon for dinner. I had it in mind all day. It was my plan. I had meant to go to the store to get the salmon to bring back and cook. I ended up having some long meetings and didn’t get to the store – then it was late, I was getting hangry and needed to eat pretty soon.

So, went into the community kitchen at the Peace Village considering my other food choices when Kathy, whom I hardly know, came in and started cooking and asked me if I’d like to share some salmon. Yes, salmon. Not tuna, not haddock, not veggie burgers, SALMON.

Amazing!

This is instant manifestation. An hour before that, I had extended kindness and generosity to someone because Spirit invited me to. And Spirit took care of my wish for salmon. Bam!

I wished for salmon and I got salmon.
I mean, think about it.
That’s really super specific.
And I’m in a campground, 15 minutes drive to the store.
I barely know this woman who offered me the wild salmon.
Not even farm-raised, wild salmon.

And I felt very happy to receive God’s gift to me.
Because I feel worthy of God’s Love.
And that’s proving God.

I had no attachment to the salmon.
It was just my preference.
I was just fine choosing an alternative, but God made it possible for me to have what I had been thinking of.

This is true spiritual success!
It’s not about the salmon.
It’s about the allowing.
It’s about being at Peace with what is.
And it’s about allowing Spirit to guide us.

I had started to look to see if any of the restaurants in close driving distance had salmon, but they didn’t. So, I let it go, and then it came to me. Sweet!

My episode from this past week was about How to Keep From Failing and it might be of interest to you. I’ve done a number of episodes of my weekly A Course in Miracles weekly Radio Show on the topic of doubt, and even more on faith. Recognizing doubt is helpful. Cultivating a deep faith is transformational. (FYI, you can search through the archive for episodes on whatever topic you’re interested in.)

No Resistance to Love

Friday, July 13th, 2018

Remember, the ego has no power of its own. The ego thought system of separation only SEEMS to have power when we choose to invest our attention in it.

This is a great mantra:
The ego has no power.
I have the power because I am part of God.

We must be so care-full with our thoughts, words and actions because our mind is the mind of God. Our word is the word of God.

Our choices are the choices of God in this world. That’s what this world is for – to teach us what the effects of our thoughts, words and actions are in a world of illusion so that any unkind choices stay in this world and our permanent perfection goes undiminished and undamaged.

There’s a lot of talk in the political scene right now about resistance as a form of nonviolent protest. I have studied the personal practice of nonviolence and nonviolent resistance for years and I know how effective it can be – when it’s done with a loving heart. That’s the key – the loving heart.

When we resist in our heart, we’re in a negative energetic that isn’t helpful to anyone and is actually self-destructive. Haven’t we had enough of self-destructive behaviors? I certainly have.

Let’s face it, what is there to resist when Love is all there is? Resisting Love is what made us seem to be “lost in space” in the first place. Resisting Love is how we forgot to laugh at the tiny mad idea of separation.

It’s not possible for us to hold a negative thought and not be deeply affected by it.

Let’s surrender to Love and resist energizing negativity.

Praying for those who seem to be in opposition to our values is our best strategy for change. Praying for everyone to awaken to their true identity, releasing all thoughts of separation, and remembering our unity, this is the plan of spiritual action that will bring the greatest results. While we may practice nonviolent resistance as a political means, the greatest tool we have is our loving heart.

A Course in Miracles tells us these two important keys to our healing our mind of negativity:

Nothing real can be threatened, nothing unreal exists.
Seek not to change the world,
but CHOOSE to change your mind about the world

The best way to resist the ego is to overcome it through choosing Love. When we each, in our own daily expressions are teaching only Love then we’re healing the cause of every problem we think we see in the world. It’s a winning strategy.

Lightening UP!

Thursday, July 12th, 2018

Can you feel it? The “energy” of life seems to be much lighter in the last couple of weeks and particularly right now. It feels like we’ve come through some kind of worm hole to a brighter place. I notice a lot of people are feeling it too.

I remember in my late twenties that I realized I had been facing the dark with my back to the light of my being. It was such an aha for me. I consciously decided to turn and face the Light and begin to actively journey towards it.

Back then, I thought it would take a hundred lifetimes to get to the place in my heart I live in now. I never EVER imagined that I could change this much in one lifetime. It seemed completely impossible, not even a super human super hero could do it, and certainly not me.

These can seem like super serious times. There’s a lot of intensity. And it’s our response-ability as Light workers to bring in the light and to remember to laugh.

How can we expect the whole world to lighten up when we’re upset about what’s going on? Let’s focus on LOVING our brothers and sisters so that they return to their right mind.

Even though we may not like some of the things that are going on in the world let us not use them as excuses to harbor attack thoughts and resentments. We have better uses of our energies.

It’s time for us to stand strong in the Love and the Light and not be moved! It’s not easy sometimes, but that’s the struggle that will make us stronger.
Let’s not waste our energy focused on minor and petty things. Let’s focus on being loving and sharing our gifts and talents in ways that are fulfilling and inspiring. Now’s the time to rise and shine!

How to Keep From Failing

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

When we put the ego in charge we’re guaranteed to fail. When we put spirit in charge, we’re guaranteed success. It’s not a mystery, it’s a tried and true formula for expansion and Joy!

The challenge is that so often we get attached to an idea of what success is. We can get so attached to what we think it is, what it looks like, what it sounds like, what it feels like, and how it’s being demonstrated.

Have you ever worked SO hard to accomplish something and you finally made it, only to find out that it didn’t bring you the happiness you thought it would? I have! It’s so crazy! You’re a success, but you feel like a failure because you fulfilled the ego’s idea of success not Spirits.

When we put Spirit in charge, we cannot fail.
When we put ego in charge, even we meet our goal, it can feel like a failure.

There are so many ways that we can go off down a long and winding road to what we think will be success only to realize that it’s not what we’d really like at all. That’s where self-forgiveness sets us free.

Everything works together for our good and there’s not one exception except in the opinion of the ego. Isn’t that wonderful? EVERYTHING works for our good. No exceptions!

Let’s not make anymore exceptions.
Let’s forgive ourselves for having made exceptions in the past.
Our success IS in our willingness to let Spirit lead us and guide us to the highest and best every day, in every way!

Peace Training

Thursday, July 5th, 2018

People often ask me what to do about the situations in the world that they don’t like and upset them. As you may know, A Course in Miracles tells us, “seek not to change the world, but to change our mind about the world.” ACIM is very clear how important it is that we not invest the energy of our thought and attention into things that we wish were different. Our response-ability is to hold the vision of perfect Peace and Love – and by vision, I really mean, to hold in our mind that Peace prevail on earth. That Love is all there is.

My prayer is that Peace prevail and also that truth prevail.

In a world where there is so much deceit and lying with intent to disrupt and disturb, we must hold that truth will prevail, and that Peace is our natural state.

I sometimes feel called to simply sit, pray, meditate and contemplate that Peace is here now. Perfection is here now. It’s not in the future. It’s now. Now is all there is. Let me BE the Peace.

Other times, I feel called to speak and share.

Sometimes, I feel called to go to a march, or a meeting and simply hold the vibration of Love and Peace.

Spirit is directing us, always guiding us. Prayer is the most powerful tool we have. ACIM tells us it is the medium of miracles.

Let us pray to KNOW the truth,
to BE the Peace and,
to extend the Perfect Love of God that we already are.

This is our training.
This is how we change our mind about the world.
This is how we reveal the new heaven and the new earth – NOW!

Liberation Day!

Wednesday, July 4th, 2018

I was in prison for many years – imprisoned by my own judgments and opinions. I was tortured by my own doubt and fear. In the prison of my own thought I saw no escape, although I dreamed of one. My days could only be half-lived because, although I knew I wasn’t free, I didn’t know that it was something I had to choose.

What’s amazing to me now, looking back, I can clearly see that I was the one who had decided that I wasn’t free. I was the one who had decided that others had done this to me. I was the one who decided that I was trapped. I was the one who decided I couldn’t find the way out.

I can see now that I had made a lot of decisions. I have to wonder why I thought being a victim was so attractive. I am so VERY grateful that I’ve learned the extraordinary value of taking responsibility. I am so grateful for my own capacity to let things that are hurting me GO! Bye-bye!
Jesus taught us that the truth will set us free. When I heard that from inside my prison cell it sounded wonderful. I could feel that it was true. Still, I didn’t know HOW to use the truth to set me free.

It was a while before I even allowed myself to consider that I could be free. It took a while because I didn’t want to desire something I didn’t think I could have. Eventually the pain of continuing to live imprisoned by my judgments became so great that I allowed myself to desire liberation.

Then, because I was finally TRULY interested in liberation, one day I woke up and realized that I could actively choose freedom. It was within my power to choose. I understood that I could deliberately choose whom I would serve that day. I could continue to suffer or I could choose to serve Love. In that moment I believed something different was possible. Emancipation was at hand.

A Course In Miracles teaches me that I cannot find light by analyzing darkness. I must choose the light. It says, “You have not made truth, but truth can still set you free.”

I remember my personal Independence Day clearly. I was sitting in a tent in the Andes mountains just before dawn. That morning, I awoke to the knowledge that I’d been living my life in the shadows. I’d been facing away from the light of my own being.

Somehow, deliberately walking into the darkness had become my path. In that early morning sunrise stillness, I consciously decided to turn and face the light in my own Spirit and I took that first step toward Freedom with my whole heart.

I started making some new decisions. I decided to become as loving as it was possible for me to become. I didn’t dare imagine that I could ever arrive at a place of being truly loving within this lifetime, but I didn’t mind that. I decided to head in that direction and focused on where I was going and not when I would arrive. I was Joy-full just to know that the direction I was heading in was a place I actually wished to be.

Immediately after making that decision to become as loving as I possibly could, I saw clearly my choice to focus on being loving NOW. It was my choice and no one else’s. I didn’t have to wait. I didn’t need anyone’s permission. I was not a victim of circumstance. I was completely free to follow my desire. I set my intention and in that moment I had the key that unlocked the door. That day was my day of the beginning of my Liberation – because I decided to choose it.

Deciding is so important. Only you can decide for yourself.

Today I am free to choose to serve love and to let love serve me. Love is the only power there is. By choosing Love my walk in the world is a walk of feeling powered and my ever-widening path of Freedom is something I can share with many. Thank you for sharing this Independence Day with me! May you and your loved ones always feel blessed!

Sacred Circle is on Friday this week!

Energizing My Prosperity

Monday, July 2nd, 2018

I’m up in Lincoln, Vermont camping in the gorgeous Green Mountains. It’s spectacularly beautiful at night with our recent full moon, fields full of lightening bugs, and at night sometimes we can see the vastness of the milky way.

If you’ve been following me for any lengthy of time you know how much I love to be able to be outside and spend the day in nature. I love being able to camp, even when I can hear a bear outside my tent at night!

The other night it was a clear beautiful night. The big moon was pouring light into my tent. I was awakened around 1:30am and it was so completely silent, but my tent was being lit up with flashes. Based on the fact that the full moon was pouring through the trees into my tent, and some interesting experiences in my past, I thought, “oh, boy, UFO’s with flashing lights!”

I really didn’t wish to call attention to myself so, I just watched the display on my tent walls for a while, then I had to know what was going on. I thought it could be a lightening storm, but there was no sound at all. And the moon was out. It was so silent, not even a cricket.

It turns out it was definitely lightening and the energy of it kept me up for about an hour watching the flashes. When I awaken in the night like that, I take it as the perfect opportunity for more prayer. We can’t have too much prayer. It’s so healing and restorative.

I love camping, and being able to be outside as much as possible. I’m also becoming a gardener at our family’s home, Blue Arches, on Deer Isle, Maine. And I’m also doing some gardening here in Vermont at the Sunray Peace Village. I’ve learned to love working at a picnic table.

Nature offers a continuous offering of prosperity teachings. If we think thee’s no water. It’s a draught. Things are drying up. Things will die. We can change our mind and watch the weather change. I remember leading a retreat in St. Louis, Missouri years ago when they were experiencing a really intense draught. Trees were dying everywhere around. they were falling over and it was a sight to see.

At our weekend retreat we did A LOT of forgiveness work.
Unexpectedly, it began to rain torrential rain.

The miracle happens in our mind and it reveals itself in unexpected ways all around us.

If you doubt prosperity, start counting the leaves on a tree. If you doubt the power of your mind go outside and start using your mind to dissolve specific clouds. Take your power back. Nature will help you!

Nature comes in so many forms, and some of them are challenging. I see many deer in the yard on Deer Isle and I also see that they’ve eaten a lot of the things in the garden. They eat the buds off the flowering trees. They can strip bare some of the flowering bushes. They’re hungry.

In Maine I see bright red raccoons playing on the porch in the winter snow. I see raccoons ambling through the yard and seals swimming in the cove. There’s a lot of nature here and some of it can seem destructive at times. Have you ever seen what raccoons can do to your trash? We’ve learned a lot in the last year about floods, fires and hurricanes.

And still, I don’t find fault with nature and animals, they’re just doing what they naturally do. Animals look for food and eat the best thing they can find. I can relate!

While I don’t find fault with the animals, I still feel it’s my responsibility to honor and cherish nature. When I lived in England, I captured and released several spiders a day. At least a hundred spiders a month!

The earth is an amazing treasure. We’re so blessed to live on an amazing and gorgeous planet. Our ability to live here and enjoy all the beautiful aspects of this life here, is a great demonstration of our natural prosperity. I feel SO grateful and so blessed.

Prosperity isn’t just wealth and abundance. Prosperity is being able to have a good life, a sense of well-being, a good night’s sleep, healthy digestion and elimination, clear thinking.

Prosperity is being able to breathe deeply, or to laugh.

I cannot imagine that it would be possible to FEEL prosperous and not honor mother earth.

My sense is that those who don’t appreciate the earth, and all she gives us, will feel less than prosperous because they’re not grateful for what they have. Gratitude multiplies the good through acknowledging it.

Bless the earth today and every day. When you can, walk barefoot upon her, feel the dew on your feet and legs. I like to go out in the morning and pick up the dew on my hands and wipe it on my face. Giving thanks for the glory of nature.

Being in nature, I feel restored. I feel grateful. I can feel and see the blessings all around me. God is so very good and we are blessed. We are UNIMAGINABLY prosperous. Let us accept it and share it with Love!

Being grateful is a powerful spiritual practice that multiplies the good in our life!
