Miracle

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

A miracle is when we shift our thinking from egotistical to spiritual.  A miracle is when we choose to dis-identify with the ego thought system and align with Spirit instead.

People think a miracle is when something shifts in the world of form that’s surprising.  Miracles are always surprising, but actually we shift at the level of the mind, at the level of the heart, and then things change at the level of form.

A Course in Miracles tells us:

“A miracle is a service.  
It is the maximal service you can render to another.  
It is a way of loving your neighbor as yourself.  
You recognize your own and your neighbor’s worth simultaneously.”  T-1.I.18.

I’ve learned that being of service brings the greatest sense of fulfillment.  We can be deeply fulfilled and sustained every way in every day through being willing to be miracle-minded.

I invite you to consider where you’re experiencing something you wish would change.  Are you willing to be the one who calls forth a miracle?  Changing your mind about what’s possible, and energizing what you’d like instead of what you don’t like are part of being willing to experience the shift of mind that will bring forth a miraculous demonstration.

The miracle is in the mind.
When the mind shifts – the whole world changes.

“Seek not to change the world, but CHOOSE to change your mind about the world.”

People get tired of waiting for change – be an agent of positive change and you won’t be waiting anymore!

This week, I’m offering a class on Thursday (my gift to you) on the topic:  Unblock the Flow of Your Time, Energy & Money.  It’s really about letting go of the patterns of lack and limitation.  It’s also an opportunity for me to share some of what I offer in my yearlong Masterful Living Course which starts on January 1st.

Heart

Wednesday, December 6th, 2017

What I notice is that, sometimes, people get inspired and on fire to pour their heart into things and then something discourages them and they pull back and withdraw. It takes real courage to follow your heart regardless of whether or not anyone else is paying attention and appreciating what you’re doing.

I’ve learned the power of *moving forward and following my heart even when others think I’m a bit nuts. A good example of that is my weekly Sacred Circle Spiritual Counseling Call, which I’ve been doing for about five years now.

When I first had the inspiration to do it, I didn’t have the means to do it. I simply couldn’t afford to hire someone to help me do all the pieces of it to make it come together. I had a great desire to offer an opportunity for people who wished to be able to have counseling with me be able to have it at a low cost and a regular frequency.

At the time that I finally had the resources to move forward and offer this program, several of my friends who had offered similar programs that “failed” told me not to waste my time and energy starting something that would never last.

That was 5 years ago.

My weekly Sacred Circle Spiritual Counseling calls are one of my favorite things. And for those who are in Finding Freedom Spiritual Bootcamp, it’s a bonus. I really feel the power of our weekly calls.

I’m so glad that I follow my guidance and move forward even when others are trying to persuade me with their logic. Don’t get me wrong, there are MANY times when folks in my beloved community are SO very helpful in telling me things that I haven’t seen or noticed and that’s wonderful. For me, telling me the truth as you understand is helpful to me. I can take anything that’s offered to me as long as it’s offered with Love and kindness.

My invitation to you is to consider what you might be resisting or putting on the back burner because you’re not sure how it will go over. I encourage you to follow your heart and let Spirit make the way for you.

When it comes to contributing more Love, Spirit always makes a way. As long as we walk with Spirit, wherever we wander, we cannot get lost. That’s pretty cool!

A Better Way

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

One of the things I’m most grateful for is my willingness to change my mind and to change course.  It used to be that I would often, “stick to my guns,” in ways that I would back myself into a corner and feel trapped.  I’d do it to myself and then I’d be angry with myself, but I couldn’t handle any more self-judgment, so I’d project that anger out onto others and attack them instead.  It was a really vicious cycle in my mind.

I caused my self so much pain and suffering, and those around me too, that now, I’m *so grateful that I can (most of the time) easily come forward and ask for what I’d like, what I prefer, and what I don’t like and don’t want in my life.  I can really be grateful to not paling myself into a corner anymore.  What a relief that I don’t have to have any guns to stick to!  Phew!

I am so grateful for my life!  I am so grateful that I agreed to follow my guidance!  I’ve been offering my yearlong Masterful Living Course since 2009, and I’ve learned so much since then.  My life has really taught me HOW to recognize my guidance, how to listen to it, and how to follow it.  It’s not all been fun, but it’s all been worthwhile and that’s the main thing.

Almost every day now, I get to talk with people in Masterful Living this year as we do our end of year, one-on-one check in’s and, while not everyone has extraordinary results, many have made such real changes that they’re experiencing a much higher quality of life and relationships now.  They feel better about themselves.  They’re more willing to actually make changes and less interested in repeating the same things from the past.  There’s at least some light at the end of the tunnel instead of just a dark tunnel.

That’s worth so much to me.  I used to wonder how I’d ever be able to really help anyone when my life was so challenging and difficult for me.  I knew there was a better way, but I didn’t know how to find it.  I knew what worked for other people, but those things didn’t work for me.  I was special.  I was an especially hopeless case.  I really believed that.

The thing that began to change everything for me was my willingness to stop believing that anyone was hopeless.  I became willing to see myself as not separate from others, and I began to realize it was my spiritual  responsibility to see the perfection in the people in my life, including everyone, excluding no one.

I never imagined I could succeed, but I decided I’d rather give it my best than not even try.

So, now, I am so very grateful that I had even a little bit of willingness to believe that there must be a better way!

Healing the Guilt

Sunday, November 26th, 2017

As a spiritual leader, I feel it’s important to be setting a shining example at all times.  In keeping with that, I’m pleased to let you know that as I write this, having just had a huge piece of pumpkin pie (homemade, of course) for breakfast, I am running on Pumpkin Power!

On Friday, I went to an early morning pilates class, which is my thing when I’m in New Jersey as I am now.  (I love pilates on the reformer.) The teacher of the pilates class made an assumption that most of us would be hungover and that we would all be ashamed of ourselves for over-eating and feeling guilty for having indulged.  She, therefore, intended to subject us to a rigorous workout so we could feel better about ourselves and release some of that shame and guilt by building up some merit by working out extra hard.

And so the ego says:

You cannot win in this system.
You cannot get ahead, because you are a sinner.
The best you can do is find a method for compensating for your sinful ways
– but at least you have that.
And you also have good reason to self-medicate,
because this stuff is CRA-ZEEEEE

And people just buy it because it’s so much a part of the mainstream.

I didn’t make a big deal out of it, but I did quietly mention that I didn’t overeat or feel hungover.

Sure, I had a full load of rich, delicious food, but I didn’t make myself uncomfortable by eating too much.

My nephews, Mikey and Alex, and I made pies.  Three of them:  Pumpkin, Pecan, and Dutch Apple.  And all of them were SO totally delicious, but I knew that if I ate anymore after that very filling turkey dinner, I’d be regretting it later, and out of Self-Love, I didn’t do that.

What I did, instead, was affirm that I could have pumpkin pie for breakfast and I did.  I had TWO pieces of pumpkin pie with whipped cream (homemade, so delicious, YUM!) on BOTH of them not long after pilates and I felt so good about it.  I had one big piece today, but no whipped cream, only because there wasn’t any left.  And I may have pumpkin pie again for breakfast tomorrow if there’s any left.

The best part of the pies was making them with Mikey and Alex,  and being able to spend hours in the kitchen with them hanging out, listening to David Bowie and Neil Young, two of my favorites, and just groovin’ with the goodness.

I’m really learning, on a day-to-day, moment-by-moment basis, how to make the choices I feel good about and simply walk in that energy of Love.  Love has all the power to heal our lives if we’re willing to stand in it.

I don’t need to argue with the pilates teacher and tell her she’s deluded about her assumptions and that it’s wrong to lay the guilt and the shame on us.  (BTW, she mentioned that she got up at 4 a.m. to eat pie.)  I knew it was projection.  I knew her strong INTENTION was to be helpful and supportive to us in feeling good about ourselves in the ways she knew how.  She had NO intention to further the belief in guilt, sin, shame, and suffering.

To be bothered by the pilates teacher’s remarks would be to make it all so real.  I would have done that in the past, and I would have upset myself, and I would have needed to be right about how wrong she was.  I would have needed to show her and teach her how wrong she was, and school her about what was right so she could be FREE of that ego insanity.

Now, I have learned, and most of the time, I remember, that LOVE is the healer, not my words.  My loving heart is the healer, not what I remember reading in a book.  Love is an active remembrance of our true identity

Every day, this world offers us more ways to practice and more opportunities to eat pie.  It’s such an amazing place to live!

For Your Freedom

Saturday, November 25th, 2017

I used to think that in order to feel free, things had to change in the world.  I believed it was the problems in the world that kept me from being happy, prosperous, and free.  I was so convinced that I was a victim of the world.

Fortunately, I made up my mind to take responsibility for everything in my life, at least in theory, and then things started to get a WHOLE LOT better for me.  I say, “in theory,” because I decided to take 100% responsibility for everything in my life with ZERO blame – yet, I still find ways that I don’t fully take responsibility – and I learn from them.  I course correct.

What I have come to truly love is our human experience.  At times, it’s so beautiful, and other times, it’s repulsive.  Sometimes, it’s confusing, and then at other times, it’s heartbreaking, inspiring, and compelling – it’s a real mix of things every day.

Our Freedom is constant.  We’re always free.  No matter what the circumstances are, the Freedom remains at least a continuous undercurrent of everything.  We don’t FEEL free when our mind is trapped in our perspective.  When we aren’t willing to see beyond our perspective then we feel trapped or imprisoned – the prison is made out of our own thoughts and beliefs.

Fortunately, there’s one who can dissolve the sense of being stuck and trapped – and it’s us, in partnership with the Higher Holy Spirit Self.

Let’s lay all the false beliefs, the mental and emotional trash, on the altar.  Let’s give all of it to the Spirit for healing and decide to find the Freedom in our heart and mind once again.

Is there anything you’re not taking responsibility for?
Is there anything you can change your mind about?

Go for it!  Let’s get on with it and bring the Freedom back to our mind – starting NOW!

Contribute now!

Our Help Shine the Light fundraising campaign is unfolding!  We have until December 4th – to claim our whole matching grant of $25,000.  So far, we’ve raised $11,500 and we have only $13,500 to go.  If we don’t raise the whole amount, we’ll forfeit the part we cannot match.  If you haven’t made a contribution yet, please consider making one now to support our being able to offer more support to more people.  Your contribution is doubled when you give right now!   Please click here now to make a contribution. Thank you!

Increase Your Spiritual Success!

Friday, November 17th, 2017

One surefire way I know to increase your spiritual success is to make your spiritual practice something you do all day long in every moment of the day.  It’s tempting to tune out and go unconscious – to vegetate or simply unplug.  What are we unplugging from?  God?  Life?  The flow of Love?  The world of insanity?  Let’s be clear about it.

I can remember how excited I felt when I realized that every moment offers a healing opportunity.  I began to consciously choose to look for opportunities to practice patience, kindness, generosity, and stillness.  I began to look for my opportunities to smile at people, to say something kind and complimentary, and it was as if I discovered all these ways to give myself a sweet gift again and again, throughout the day.

I also began to stop myself from being rude, unkind, belligerent, and all the other kinds of attack I had in my bag of tricks.  It felt so good to replace being unkind with being helpful.  I felt so grateful that I could change so many things in my life so quickly!

My many spiritual success helped me to change my mind about myself.
I began to feel more and more worthy of Love and goodness.

I began to feel happier and more lighthearted.
I dropped the weight I felt in my heart.
I discovered the Light that was always there.

I started to have a secret smile.
I knew I was onto something.
I was feeling the Joy of being loving.

Each day affords us so many opportunities.
What’s even better is to have spiritual community and Prayer Partners to share it with.

That’s why I love to bring people together to experience more of our true identity, which is naturally loving and kind!  Spiritual success is ours now, we don’t have to wait!

Our Help Shine the Light fundraising campaign is picking up!  We raised close to $1,000 yesterday. Thanks to generous donations from beautiful people!  We have until December 4th – to claim our whole matching grant of $25,000.  So far, we’ve raised close to $9,000 and we have only $16,000 to go.  If you haven’t made a contribution yet, please consider making one now to support our being able to offer more support to more people.

Your Loving Support

Thursday, November 16th, 2017

The Lion King has that wonderful teaching about the circle of life.  There is definitely a circular nature to giving and receiving.  I used to feel strings were attached to everything someone gave me, and that feeling of owing wasn’t something I liked, so I decided not to receive much.  I began to close off from receiving and limit the flow of good.  I became a poor receiver.

It took me a long time to learn that everything I receive, I receive from Spirit.
Everything I give, I give to Spirit – and that’s the circle of life that makes sense to me.

One relationship that God is having with itself by means of us.
If we are good and gracious givers and receivers then we’re in the flow of Love, and all of our needs are met by Spirit.

When we start to try to control and manipulate the flow, lack and limitation are close behind.

One of my favorite practices of being in the flow of Love is * giving in a myriad of ways.  And that’s why we have a steady stream of free offerings at Power of Love Ministry.  We give and give and give, because I feel Spirit gives me so much that I am inspired to give continuously, too.
It’s been just about nine days since we embarked on our first-ever fundraising campaign to Help Shine the Light. We have some beautiful and generous folks who are inspired by our mission and vision and they’ve promised to match ALL contributions up to $25,000. if we can raise the money now.  The operative word is “now.”
We only have until December 4 to raise $25,000 in order to receive the $25,000 matching.  Please help us to reach our goal!.
December 4 may seem like a long way off, but it’s only 23 days.  It’s a busy time of year.  Thanksgiving is next week!  My birthday is the week after that! And then we’re at December 4.

We’re at about $8,000 now, which is great, but if we don’t raise the $25,000 we won’t get the full match 😞.

Here’s what I’ve seen over the last 10 years:  People come into the free classes, listen to the daily prayers, and listen to the radio show, and they tell me over and over again that their lives are profoundly changing.  Their relationships are really improving, there’s more Love in their lives and it’s very noticeable.

While I’m so happy to donate my time to many worthy causes, it still takes a staff to support all the technical aspects of having a global ministry that offers so many free things.  To be able to reach people with a free class takes money.

  • Your donations really do make it possible for us to tell more people about our free classes.
  • Your contributions make it possible for us to offer more free classes.
  • Your donations make it possible for us to transcribe the radio shows and the prayers so that the hearing impaired can participate, too.  Our transcripts are a Godsend to many people for whom English is a second language.
  • Your contributions make it possible for us to give partial scholarship to classes and support people who are on a pension, social security, or disability  – and these are often people who aren’t able to get out much. So, being able to participate in classes gives them a community of like-minded souls.
  • Your donations make it possible to do so much for many people all over the world – this is how global change occurs – by supporting people in deepening their spiritual practice and connection with God.  This is how we get to a spiritual tipping point for all beings!

Our free Living A Course in Miracles classes have helped so many people learn about A Course in Miracles and become inspired to pick it up again or open it for the first time.  Isn’t that wonderful?
Our goal is to raise $50,000 to invest in helping more people to apply these beautiful principles to their lives.
YOUR gift will be matched dollar for dollar if you give NOW.
With your help we can meet our goal of $50,000!  How cool is that?

Here’s the link to use now:
https://www.powerofloveministry.net/donate.html

If you had any thoughts at all about making a tax-deductible contribution this year – now’s the time so we can receive the entire matching grant!
Would you please consider making a contribution to help us support more people around the world?

Your donation makes it possible for Power of Love Ministry to better serve those who have a strong inner calling to be of service, too, and live a deeper spiritual life.
We wish to thank you in advance for being a part of this expansion.  Together, we support all who wish to be a healing presence in their life and in their community in order to make the world a more loving place for everyone.  Together we’re:

Creating Capacity to Transform More Lives

All boats rise on this tide of Love!
Thank you!
One more thing – If you see my posts on Facebook, please help me to get the word out by commenting on them!  Thank you!

Gary Renard’s New Book

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

Gary Renard, the author of Disappearance of the Universe, has just come out with a new book.  I feel that Disappearance of the Universe is an extremely valuable book that really inspired me.  For many people, it’s a wonderful way to understand A Course in Miracles.

Gary’s books are provocative, informing, inspiring, and funny!

His latest book is The Lifetimes When Jesus and Buddha Knew Each Other.  I’ve only just started reading it, but I had to tell you about it!

Gary’s new book *explores six of the lifetimes in which Jesus and Buddha lived together, beginning in700 B.C.

If it calls to you, I encourage you to check it out – here’s a link to look at or purchase the book from Amazon.com.  Click now to see the book: The Lifetimes When Jesus and Buddha Knew Each Other: A History of Mighty Companions

We do tend to incarnate with the same people again and again.  Which is all the more reason to focus on healing our relationships and not taking the negativity into the next lifetime.

Since guilt is a major issue for people in their relating to others, we’re going to be looking at that today on my radio show.  I feel so strongly that the healing opportunities in our relationships are extraordinary now, and it’s the thing for us to focus on.  Please join me live or get the download!

TODAY RADIO SHOW:  On my radio show today, my topic is Keeping Guilt From Ruining Our Relationships.

Relationship Resistance

Monday, November 13th, 2017

I used to resist my relationship breakthrough opportunities again and again.  I was having my own disappointing “Groundhog Day” experience and it wasn’t funny at all.  It was intensely discouraging for me!

I’d feel paralyzed to make the change I knew I had to make to have a breakthrough.  I’d let so many healing opportunities pass right on by.  Now, I’m grateful for my painful past experiences, because I learned *so much about what it feels like to be stuck on an UNmerry-go-round of my own making.

What I recall now is how I would repeat the same painful experiences and then be mad at myself for not having the ability to see the opportunity to do something different.  The meaning I made of it at the time was that I was stupid and there was something so intensely WRONG with me.

I even began to feel that I was addicted to the behaviors that led to my unhappiness because it felt like I couldn’t help myself.  I felt so inept at times.  It only increased my self-judgment.

I was constantly thinking that I had to figure it all out and it felt like it was completely beyond my ability.  I thought I had to work in form, push density, and MAKE things happen to heal my relationships.

It took me so many years to find the better way.  As soon as I figured it out, the healing began happening.  Phew!

My class last week on Relationship Healing & Harmony was designed to share with you some of the key things I learned through all my difficulties.  My intention is to be truly helpful in offering these clear and simple tips.

If you have relationship issues, this is the class for you and it’s up right now for you to listen to on replay, and download.  We even have the transcript for you.

I know so many people who are telling me about their relationship challenges. Those challenges, ALL challenges are the opportunity to have a breakthrough to healing. Are you resisting or are you willing?

There were 5 clear tips I presented in my recent class. Now is the time to really bring on your breakthrough. If you’re willing to be led and guided Spirit will show you the way!

Do you have any upsets in your relationships? Now is the time to rock your healing!  It can make such a difference for you and your loved ones and truly improve the quality of your relationships – ALL of your relationships will benefit from applying these simple tips.

FREE CLASS:  Let me suggest some simple ways you can immediately feel more successful in your relationships.  When you’re ready to stop and drop the same old patterns of upset in relationships, the tips and tools I offer in this free class will really support you.  They’re SO simple and yet they have a profound effect.    You can learn to remember to Partner UP rather than struggling in your relationships and that feels so good.  You can stop playing small, and live your calling by ALLOWING healing your relationships.  Are you willing to make more loving choices to deepen your spiritual practice and accelerate your awakening by being a healing presence in your family? It’s easier than you think! Check out my free class – the download is available now!  Relationship Healing & Harmony.

Choosing to Be Pain Free

Sunday, November 12th, 2017

Until you prove it to yourself, it’s hard to imagine that we have the ability to heal all of our own pain and suffering. In fact, we have to ask ourselves why we wouldn’t wish to heal all our pain, but many people don’t actually wish to heal the pain. That might seem crazy to you, but it’s a very common experience.  I’ve seen it so often.

I understand it.  There have been many times in my life – too many to count – when I made a choice to *feel pain, to be in pain, to be miserable and unhappy for misguided reasons. The ego talks us into righteous suffering. Suffering for a cause. As though suffering ever improved anything!

Ego talks us into being a martyr, as though there’s some benefit to being unhappy and losing out. Insanity!

Ego talks us into thinking we can punish others by being miserable. It’s as though we can make others suffer by drinking poison. It just doesn’t work. More insanity!

Ego also talks us into believing that we can’t do any better and that being in pain is our only choice.  And yet, deep down, most of us know it’s not true.  It’s the craziest thing in this world!

By being willing to be loving and compassionate, to drop all judgments, to have holy relationships, we can actually heal all the pain there is in the world. That might seem impossible, but it’s actually the only way it will happen.

We have the power. And it’s up to us to choose it.

I’ve learned that it’s SO much easier when we do it together than when we do it on our own.  There really is strength in numbers.  It’s spiritual strength that comes from being the two or more gathered in the name of Love.

Each one who makes the choice for Love makes it easier for the next one. Are you willing to make it easier for the next one?

Revenge

Saturday, November 11th, 2017

One of my all-time favorite teachers is Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  and he is so clear about revenge.  It makes sense.  He was a true student of Jesus.  They knew the power of forgiveness to transform not only the life of the person who seems to be attacked, but also the life of the attacker.  After all, we are united.  When one is lifted, all are lifted instantly.

Dr. King warns us that the opportunity to seek revenge will come, and when that moment arrives, not to take it.  He advises to go the other way and have a profound healing.

Revenge, it’s been said, is a dish best served cold.

The implication there is * that if you hold onto your murderous thoughts, and let them ripen into your plots of anger, attack, and anguish, that it’s far more satisfying.

It’s only satisfying to the ego for a moment – and that’s NEVER worth the price.  Ever.  It’s a meal of broken glass and metal shavings.  Avoid it at all costs.

The temptation to exact revenge can be so strong at times.  It’s the ego at it’s worst.

Fortunately, there’s an antidote and it’s making a clear decision that you are worth more than being the ego’s puppet.  Your life is more than an investment in empty and pointless imaginings and expressions of bile.

My invitation is to look at all the littlest choices for revenge that come up in your life, in your heart and your mind, and give them all away to the Higher Holy Spirit.  Instead, dedicate yourself to being free and loving yourself fully.

Instead of revenge, let’s choose Unity and dissolve every thought of revenge ever had by anyone at anytime.  That’s a far better use of our mind and our life.  It’s about Self-Love and Self-compassion.  It’s about not torturing ourselves and choosing healing instead.

Let’s focus on something real and let the false ideas and resentments die from lack of attention.  Let’s make our relationships a goldmine of goodness.  Spirit will do the heavy lifting if we allow it!

Relationship Hell to Relationship Healing

Friday, November 10th, 2017

One of the MOST distressing thoughts we have in our human experience is the thought of being separated from the people we love – and we often do it to ourselves.

Because people don’t do what we wish and think they should do, we think that someone doesn’t love us, and therefore, we need to walk away from them, cut them out of our life, and end the relationships. Ugh. This kind of thinking causes much distress, and it’s so common.

It’s all part of  the ego theme and pattern of separation from Love showing up in our mind and then in our relationships. If we believe it’s real, we start to see separation and lack all over the place.

Many people ask me about how to know when it’s time to end a relationship. This is something that comes up a lot around the holiday time of year.

I have learned this:

ALL of our relationships are eternal because we are eternal beings.
And, because we’re One with everyone, there’s no way to really end them.

That would only be something that we could experience in our identification with a false, separate self.

Our relationships don’t have an end, and in truth, they don’t have a beginning.

We are One, together, eternally.

Given these basic facts, trying to end a relationship or even worrying about the end of a relationship, isn’t helpful or productive.

Instead, we focus our mental and emotional energy on simply being loving. We give the management of our relationships to the Higher Holy Spirit Self and look for the loving choices. This is what works and heals.

There are times when our relationships seem to ebb. The tide seems to go out. Like they say, “People are in our life for a season or a reason.” Instead of grasping, we can allow the ebb and flow of the appearance and hold in our heart that the ideal is unfolding and making itself known. We can think we know what the ideal is, but if we’re not in Joy, then we don’t know, and we’re imagining something less than perfect.

It’s not so easy to give the Higher Holy Spirit Self control of our relationships when we cling to believing we know how things should be. They may shift and change in ways that the ego does not like at all. And in this, we can have a HUGE healing. All healing is welcome.

I am so grateful I can choose healing.
I am so grateful I can give the heavy lifting of figuring out HOW to make it happen to the Higher Holy Spirit Self.
I’m so grateful I can allow the healing and set myself free!

FREE CLASS:  Would you like to feel successful in your relationships, too? Ready to stop and drop the same old patterns of upset? Would you like to remember to Partner UP and stop struggling in your relationships? Are you willing to stop playing small, and live your calling by healing your relationships? Are you willing to deepen your spiritual practice and accelerate your awakening by being a healing presence in your family? It’s easier than you think!

Help Us Shine the Light!

Thursday, November 9th, 2017

We’ve embarked on a first-ever fundraising campaign to Help Shine the Light.
Our goal is to raise $50,000. to invest in growing the community and helping more people to apply these beautiful principles to their lives.

Here’s my exciting news!!

We have some generous folks who are inspired by our mission and have promised to match ALL contributions up to $25,000. if we can raise the money now.  WOW!
YOUR gift will be matched dollar for dollar if you give NOW.  With your help we can meet our goal of $50,000!  How cool is that?

Here’s the link to use now:

https://www.powerofloveministry.net/donate.html

The mission of Power of Love, a non-profit ministry, is to offer a loving community to folks, such as yourself, who yearn to get out of their heads and into their hearts.

Through the ministry’s classes, workshops, professional trainings and retreats, focused on forgiveness, building faith, affirmative prayer, relationship healing, spiritual counseling and compassion, we lead people from the intellectual study of spiritual principles into the moment-by-moment of living these principles and improving the quality of their lives.

We’ve proven that by joining together, having simple tools and practices that work, remembering to laugh and Love, the miracle actually happens.  We open our hearts and minds to Love’s Presence.  We begin to recall that our true identity is Love.  We begin to let Love lead us.

Sometimes, I wish I could tell you specifically about the people I connect with who tell me they were on the verge of killing themselves, but then “something” (Spirit) led them to listen to one of my prayers, or watch a video, or listen to a free class.  And from there, they began to have a Ray of Light, and then they took a class that we were offering at no cost, and then they started listening to the radio show, and then they started studying ACIM and – boom!  Now, they’re helping others.  This happens on a regular basis.

People who were on their own, feeling lost, confused, helpless, hopeless, depressed and ALONE, so alone, found a community of like-minded souls through our many ways of sharing at no cost.

Together, we can definitely improve our ability to offer support, and together, we can reach many more people who never even heard of ACIM.  After all, with what we’ve done so far, we’ve reached people in over 100 countries!
You’re a VITAL and IMPORTANT part of this movement to extend Love to our brothers and sisters, and you can help us provide more support to more people all over the world, so that they, like you, will be inspired to share and to Love.
Here’s what we’re investing in:  Many seek to find a life of Love and happiness, true spiritual connection.  Many invest years of seeking with the intellect, studying and reading, without finding a shift in their heart.  For some, it leads to discouragement and even hopelessness.  Folks can feel the miracle of Love calling them, but they feel unworthy.
Yet, with tangible support from a community of like-minded souls, people transform their lives, their relationships and even their workplaces because they feel inspired to truly live the teachings rather than study them.  Their living demonstration inspires everyone around them to be more kind, loving, and generous.

What will your investment allow us to achieve?

  • We can offer online A Course in Miracles study groups – yes!  We can build this!  Imagine what a difference that will make to people who have NO ONE to talk to about these teachings.
  • We can develop minister and teacher training courses to support more people around the world
  • We can improve the ministry website to help more people get easy access to our materials – we’re giving wonderful tools and classes away – let’s get them to more people!
  • We can share these gifts with more people from around the world in discovering the value of A Course in Miracles, affirmative prayer, spiritual practice, and forgiveness through these offerings.

If you had any thoughts at all about making a tax-deductible contribution this year – now’s the time, so we can receive the entire matching grant!

Would you please consider making a contribution to help us support more people around the world?

Your donation makes it possible to expand Power of Love Ministry to better serve those who have a strong inner calling to be of service too and live a deeper spiritual life. 

We wish to thank you in advance for being a part of this expansion.  Together, we support all who wish to be a healing presence in their life and in their community in order to make the world a more loving place for everyone.  Together, we are:

Creating Capacity to Transform More Lives

All boats rise on this tide of Love!

Thank you!

One more thing – If you see my posts on Facebook, it will really help to get the word out if you comment on them!  Thank you!

Family Freak Out

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Why does our family always seem to push our buttons?
Because they installed them.

That’s the joke. It’s funny, and I can laugh about it, but it’s not actually true. I’m the one that installed every button. Every single one.

As I’ve been preparing for my class on Relationship Healing & Harmony, I’ve been thinking about being with my family for Thanksgiving this year.  And I’m so aware of how much things have changed in my family from how they used to be.

I’ve had some pretty painful Thanksgivings in the past, and I’ve learned from my unloving choices.

I’ve learned that when my buttons are being pushed and I get triggered into feeling upset that this is my answered prayer.

That might seem crazy. How could feeling upset be an answered prayer?

Well, when we’re triggered, or even when an old unpleasant memory comes into our awareness, this is our opportunity to, “choose again,” as it says in A Course in Miracles.

ACIM tells us that whenever we’re in pain, we’re looking with a wrong perspective.  Our mental and emotional pain lets us know that in the past, we made a wrong decision about life, ourselves, Love, family, whatever it is, and the pain is the reminder to choose again. I call the upset, “the Divine alarm clock,” going off to let me know that I have an opportunity for healing.

The thing that I actively did that changed my life so much was I made a decision to transform the upsets into a healing opportunity. I decided to train myself to choose again. I decided to learn to recognize the sound of that Divine alarm clock and not hit the snooze button, but to use it to wake myself up.

For years, I found that the holiday times with my family were when I got triggered most. Old hurts and wounds were coming up for healing. I decided to make the most of my healing opportunities and not let them keep passing me by.

Every upset was my Higher Holy Spirit Self placing in front of me the opportunity to choose again. I could choose to be offended and upset again, or I could choose to have a healing. It was always my choice. I was never a victim. I began to have so much healing and so much RELIEF from upset by being grateful for the upset and choosing my healing.

I was able to share my healing with everyone in my family and everyone in the world. I love that.

Why waste one more minute being annoyed or hurt? Give it up to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing. Don’t allow yourself to get on the pain train anymore. It’s an act of Self-Love to make a new choice.

When the upset comes, say this:

“Higher Holy Spirit Self, please take this upset, this thought, this belief, this opinion or judgment out of my mind. Whatever it is, known or unknown, heal it back to the root source so that I never experience it again. I’m done with the painful past. I’m only interested in being loving now. Please share the benefits of my healing and expansion with everyone. Let all beings who have this upset have a healing now.”

When we’re really more interested in healing than we are in being right, then the healing happens. It just takes that willingness to be loving rather than needing to be right.

Whenever you feel upset, you can be happy instead – take the healing opportunity and share the benefits with everyone!

Think about it: I’m doing my healing for YOU, you can do your healing for ME, and together we can remember we are ONE and ALL pain and suffering will end!

Would you like to feel successful in your relationships, too? Ready to stop and drop the same old patterns of upset? Would you like to remember to Partner UP and stop struggling in your relationships? Are you willing to stop playing small, and live your calling by healing your relationships? Are you willing to deepen your spiritual practice and accelerate your awakening by being a healing presence in your family? It’s easier than you think! Check out my free class I recorded yesterday:

Relationship Healing & Harmony

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

Here we are again.  The holidays are on their way.  Some people are bracing for challenging holiday times.

Prosperity & Relationships

Monday, November 6th, 2017

Prosperity and relationships have a correlation that you might not recognize, but it’s there and it’s worth paying attention to.

First, let me establish this about my understanding of Prosperity:

Prosperity isn’t just Abundance.
Prosperity is about thriving.
It’s about having a strong sense of well-being.

Prosperity is feeling good about yourself and your life.

And Prosperity includes things like having good digestion and being able to get a good night’s sleep.  It includes feeling like you’re in the flow of Love and Light.

Prosperity is directly tied to forgiveness.
Honestly, I find it difficult to imagine how anyone could actually feel prosperous and be holding onto resentments, grudges, and hurts.

All relationships require forgiveness.

It makes sense especially when you recognize that true forgiveness is letting go of the meaning you made of things.  True forgiveness is letting go of interpreting what things mean.  Isn’t that essential to having a healthy relationship?

When we’re in a healthy relationship, then we’re consistently letting go of the meaning our ego has made of things.

When we’re in a healthy relationship. we’re letting go of interpretations every single day.

every
single
day

Prosperity is about getting the ego out of our relationships, so we can actually be happy.

And that’s why I’m offering my free class tomorrow – my Relationship Healing & Harmony class.  I’ve got some simple tips that really help increase the Harmony and healing in our relationships – and that naturally leads to more Prosperity.

Forgiveness really does increase your Prosperity because it increases the flow of Love, and that also brings more Abundance.  I’ve proven it works.

I can tell you that as I focused on having happy, healthy relationships, my Prosperity increased.  I’m not the only one.  It really does work.  Please join me tomorrow in this free class and bring your relationship questions!

This free class tomorrow is also a preview for my yearlong Masterful Living Course 2018.  And I’m making a special offer in the class tomorrow.  Just an FYI.

Intensity

Friday, November 3rd, 2017

We continue to be in a time of great intensity.  It’s absolutely clear to me that the intensity is going to continue.  The pressure we’re all feeling is the pressure that forms the diamond.

We’re returning to our natural pristine state of awareness.

The pressure we feel is to help us to let go of attachments, cravings, aversions, and addictive-compulsive tendencies.  If we cling to playing small, it’s going to be painful.

Let us not play small anymore.

We are lifted and carried when we ALLOW Spirit to take the load.  Let’s not attach our minds to thinking it’s hard, or difficult, or dense.  It feels quite intense at times, but there are NO levels of difficulty in healing in the illusion.

We stay focused on expanding into living as our true Self, teaching only Love.

Staying firmly on track with a vision of Love and healing requires the fire of DESIRE.  It’s the fire of desire that burns away our complacency and despair, the hopelessness and ambivalence.   It’s the fire of desire that burns away the attachments to playing small.

Spirit will do ALL the work of our awakening if we allow it.  Our job is to call it forth and ALLOW it.

We don’t have to figure out HOW.  Simply, allow.  Don’t give up, give it UP!
Let’s focus on what we’d like rather than how to make it happen.  Let’s ALLOW Spirit to do it FOR us.

One life. One Love. One Will.
God’s Will IS our will, for we are One with our Creator.  

God’s Will be done in our hearts and minds on earth as it is in Heaven!

Healing the Fear

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017

A friend of mine, who is a life coach, sent an e-mail out with 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 yesterday’s radio show, about the rewards of choosing Love, I shared this from A Course in Miracles:

“… 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.

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’m training – you can book a session on a donation basis – look here:  http://jenniferhadley.com/spiritual-counselors/

Rewards

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

The ego often responds to a system of rewards and punishments.  The ego’s ideas of rewards are often quite skewed.  For the ego, sometimes seeing someone else fail can seem to be a reward just as someone else’s success can feel like a punishment.

The ego is backwards.  The ego lives in a world where things seem to be the opposite of what they truly are.  No wonder life can feel so confusing!*

When we make the commitment to Partner UP with the Higher Holy Spirit Self then it is so much easier to discern what is true and what is false.  It’s so worth it.  Would you wish to invest your precious time and energy in what’s false when it only leads to feeling like a loss and a waste later?  No, of course not.

Our willingness to stay focused on the truth, and discovering the truth brings tremendous rewards.  These are the natural rewards.  These are the rewards that really matter:  more Peace, more Love, more Joy.  And that’s just the start.

Let’s discover all the rewards of living in Spirit, and living inspired.  Let’s choose a path of healing.  This is the highest and best path and it’s the path with all the power – the power of Love!

No More Dread

Monday, October 30th, 2017

Have you ever woken up with a feeling of dread? A lot of people do. I certainly have, but I can’t remember the last time because it’s been so long. Would you like to eliminate that feeling of dread from your life? Of course you would! Are you willing to look at it and let it go?

Ask yourself: *Who is it that dreads? Is it me, my true Self, or the ego?

I already know the answer:
The ego.

What does the ego dread?

In my experience, the sense of dread comes from identifying with the ego, the small selfish, always inadequate, forever lacking self. I was believing that I was lacking something and couldn’t succeed.  Dread feels like it’s not going to be good, and you’re on your own, there’s no hope.

Why would I want to get out of bed if I knew I couldn’t succeed? If I’m already a failure even before my feet hit the floor, why bother?

That belief that I can’t succeed is like kryptonite to our inner spiritual super hero.

Here’s why I don’t have that feeling of dread anymore:

I have LOVE and I know it.  I’m so clear about it because it’s my very being.

Love always succeeds.
I AM Love and LOVE IS success.
Love overcomes all obstacles.

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 is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. Corinthians 13:4-8

Dread is evidence of intense opinions/beliefs coming up for healing. It’s evidence of keeping a record of wrongs and being self-seeking.

If you don’t enjoy feeling dread, choose again. Partner UP! Then choose again.  You’ll be surprised at how a simple, steady spiritual practice of being loving cures the dreads.

Instead of focusing on eliminating dread. Let’s put our attention on cultivating Joy-full anticipation.  It’s always more effective to focus on what we’d like to develop rather than focusing on what we’d like to eliminate.

We’re letting the Higher Holy Spirit Self do the heavy lifting and we’re choosing to live a life that we can love.  Yes!

Service

Saturday, October 28th, 2017

We’ve been encouraged to, “dance as though no one is watching.” What about being of service as though no one is watching?

One of the ways that we truly know we’re free is when we’re no longer watching to see what anyone else thinks of what we’re doing. We’re feeling free when we can go about our business, following our heart’s desire, and not looking over our shoulder. We become good listeners. Clearly receiving inspiration and *insight from our Higher Holy Spirit Self.

If we love what we do, and we enjoy it and feel good about it, is that enough? Or do we need someone else to acknowledge it? Of course, I appreciate all the appreciation I receive, but it’s not why I feel moved to share.

I greatly enjoy sharing. I enjoy making the prayers every day and writing my Spiritual Espresso. That’s why I do it. I enjoy feeling the connection with everyone who participates. Energetically, I feel it every single day. It’s lovely. I’m so glad Spirit inspired me to begin this as part of my spiritual practice.

There was a time in my life when I would be of service, volunteer, and do many other things to go out of my way to get noticed and appreciated. It always sucked the Joy out of things for me. Phew!

I see one of the challenges many spiritual seekers have, Ministers and practitioners – is that they are giving service to get noticed. Giving to get is always going to lead to suffering. I’m not interested in suffering anymore! I love the way it feels when I give and share like no one is watching and it’s just because I feel inspired! Let’s all serve as though no one is watching. That’s such a sweet Spirit connection to live in!

Releasing Attachments Today

Wednesday, October 25th, 2017

Yesterday, in Masterful Living, we were talking about letting go of attachments because we know that attachments keep us from living the life we truly desire.

Buddha taught us that all attachments cause suffering without exception.  We are done with suffering.   Although, we all remember when we thought that we had to manage and cope with suffering, we’ve come to recognize that suffering is optional.  Suffering is a choice.  And it’s not a choice we wish to make anymore.

The shift to an ever-increasing life of Peace comes through our consistent willingness to recognize the opportunity to give an attachment to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing.  That’s what I call, “Giving the Holy Spirit the heavy lifting.”

I find that it’s extraordinary how much healing we can experience when we’re willing to pay attention to when we feel the hook of an attachment.  Attachments are really noticeable in the form of irritations, frustrations and upsets.  These spikes of emotion are an indicator that we have some attachment that is coming up for healing.

It’s astounding to me how much my life has changed through the release of attachments.  Incidents that used to really bother me don’t happen at all anymore.  Upsets that would drag me off track and take a lot of time and energy, leaving me feeling depleted, stupid, wrong, and bad don’t even happen anymore.

How cool is that????

I feel so grateful that I can increase my sense of expansion and connection with Spirit EVERY SINGLE DAY by releasing the attachments that come up for healing every day.  Instead of cursing them and feeling that I’m stuck in some kind of Groundhog Day, repeating the same old annoyances and difficulties, I have come to realize that each challenge is an opportunity to improve my life.  I love that!

Now is the time for us to get with the spiritual program of Love and Light that is calling us to a life of Peace and Joy!  I’m so glad we’re doing it together!

God’s Teacher

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

Accepting Divine Assistance

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Just Say Yes!

Saturday, October 21st, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

With faith, all things are possible.

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

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

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

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

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