Happiness

Wednesday, December 12th, 2018

Many people feel that they want to get some things from Spirit. We’d like improvements in our life. We’d like our prayers to be answered. We’d like Spirit to give us the things we think will make us happy. This is all completely understandable.

What about desiring to be fully released from all belief in sin? Is that on our list?

If you believed it were possible, would you ask the Higher Holy Spirit Self to release you from the belief that you’ve made mistakes and sinned? Would you choose to remember you are already as holy as holy can be? Would you go for the highest possibility of healing that you can have?

Many times, people are wishing and hoping for the things that they think will make them happy when, in reality, they have no idea what will make them happy. They focus on what they think will make them happy as a way of not really looking at what will truly make them happy.

In my experience, the thing that makes me happy is cultivating the ability to be present to the presence of Love in my life, and having no other false gods before Love. Making Love the priority brings me Joy, and it certainly brings a great group of very different choices – all of which bring me healing from a belief in sin, lack, and limitation.

In a sense, we could say that the greatest sin is to believe that we’re sinners, less than perfect, and we deserve to be punished.

When we can give up thinking that we are being punished or we will be punished, we can let go of the habit of keeping sin alive. This benefits all. And, it brings great happiness.

We do our practice at the level of the mind, and all beings are lifted this day! #1 priority is forgiving ourselves for thinking we are sinners who are being punished. ENOUGH! We’re doing the forgiveness work for all humanity. This is ours to do!

Strength

Tuesday, December 11th, 2018

Last night in Masterful Living class we were talking about a quandary we’ve all experienced. We understand that change and healing can be simple. We get that spiritual practice can be clear and concise – and yet, we all have found that we’ve struggled, because it’s simple but not easy.

Simple but not easy. Okay, but WHY?

The short answer is “Because we’re attached to our point of view.”

Have you ever gotten SO upset because you were right about how wrong someone was? Or maybe you just were so attached to making someone see your perspective and admit they were wrong?

These are examples of the fact that we can see it’s simple to just let go and move on, and yet we cannot do it, and it seems SO HARD.

I used to be like a dog with a bone about EVERYTHING.

It was exhausting.

Now, I don’t wish to have that energetic anywhere in my life, and definitely not in my heart. Now, I’m a lover, not a fighter.

I’ve shifted because of releasing so many attachments. Giving up the attachments is a healing power and presence that we barely know exists!

It seems hard when we try to do it by ourselves.
It’s easy when we REALLY allow the Higher Holy Spirit Self to transform it.

We give them to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing, and we set ourselves free. A Course in Miracles tells us, Spirit will “undo all the consequences of our wrong decisions if we ALLOW it.” I’m big on allowing the healing.

When we feel weak and defensive, we’ve got strong attachments. The weakness and the defensiveness can feel so demoralizing and demeaning. It seems as though the fear and weakness feed on each other. Counting and polishing our grievances certainly escalates the issue.

In order to FEEL free, we must be willing to let go off our attachment to outcome. This usually requires Self-Love. Our Self-Love motivates us and supports us in letting go of the need to be right and make others wrong.

It takes strength and fortitude to be compassionate and caring. Therein lies the rub! To get to the compassionate caring heart we must be forgiving. Amen to that! Let’s end this year with tremendous healing, and forgive everything while we can, without delay! That’s what strength is for. Strength is for transforming our lives, because our hearts are fiercely compassionate.

Come jump start with me this weekend!

I’m offering my Forgive & Be Free workshop for free online, on video and inviting you to join me!

I can tell you that as I focused on having happy healthy relationships, my Abundance has increased. I’m not the only one. It really does work.

Consistency

Monday, December 10th, 2018

For years I really struggled with being consistent. Like many of us, I was challenged to be consistently loving, kind, generous of heart, patient, and with keeping my agreements. I still make more agreements than I can keep, because I think things will be easier than they are.

In A Course in Miracles Manual for Teachers, it tells us about the characteristics of God’s teachers. God’s teachers are those who are teaching more about Love than about fear. The 10 Characteristics includes Honesty, which is #2 and that’s what Jesus describes as consistency.

When we’re consistent, we’re leading an honest life.

Now, that can feel like a burden in today’s world of so much intensity and complexity – however, here’s the way to move in that direction of honesty and consistency quite rapidly: Forgiveness.

When we commit to a practice of non-judgment and releasing judgment as our practice of forgiveness, then we’re being consistent about course-correction.

The way to heaven is through our willingness to have humility, and give to Spirit all of our judgments for healing. That is the path of forgiveness, and it’s deeply healing and transformative.

It also works SHOCKINGLY fast.

That’s why I have my boot camp class, and my yearlong classes, so that we can get a jump start, and/or we can stay focused on being consistent.

The goal is to consistently put our faith in Love instead of lack, attack and separation. When we keep our focus on that one goal, and consistently practice every day by getting up every time we fall down, then we’re doing it!

The healing begins to accelerate at such a rapid pace it’s exciting!

Come jump start with me this weekend!

I can tell you that as I focused on having happy healthy relationships, my Abundance has increased. I’m not the only one. It really does work.

Resistance

Sunday, December 9th, 2018

We all get the same lessons, and the same opportunities, again and again and again. Because I counsel so many people, I’m well aware that we’re all pretty much the same:

The conclusion we draw is that the repeating the same lesson so often is because we’re stupid. We’re idiots, morons, and fools and we “never learn,” and on and on.

These things aren’t true.
We’re not stupid.

We’re resistant.
We’re reluctant.

I used to feel hopeless and helpless because of the meaning I made of the constant mistakes and errors.

Like the world we live in, I couldn’t feel better unless I blamed someone, and I was the one to blame. Of course, others took some pretty ferocious heat, too. Often, I just felt like I wanted to burn everything down.

My sense of helplessness led me to feel destructive, self-destructive blaming and shaming, and then I’d just spiral down into a puddle of:

“I am fundamentally bad and not good.”

This darkest time of the year (here in the U.S.) was the worst time for me. I didn’t get depressed so much as I’d just get angry. A constant aggressive anger.

When I learned the power of forgiveness, it saved me. It absolutely truly saved me.

And that’s why when I found A Course in Miracles, which is the only spiritual teaching I’ve seen (besides the mystical teachings of the Ascended Masters of St. Germaine, and Jesus, and that group) that is focused around forgiveness.

Forgiveness IS the way out.

In my classes we focus on forgiveness in a particular way that we’ve found to be super-effective at quickly healing, and clearing, and releasing the past hurts and resentment. I call it TRUE forgiveness.

Forgiveness clears the reluctance and resistance.
Why? Because it erases the root cause of it.

Without true forgiveness, we’ll never fully feel free,
and we won’t fulfill our destiny.

Yesterday, I was taking my precious niece, Olivia, who is now a young lady about to graduate from college, on a night out in Manhattan.

I got tickets to a play that I thought she would really like. Olivia is a SUPER Harry Potter fan, and Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry in all the movies, is in a Broadway play called The Lifespan of A Fact. The tickets were $300. I’ve never paid $300 for theatre tickets in my life, but you do these things for the ones you love. Right? Yes!

You see, Olivia’s birthday is a week before Christmas and, like me with my Thanksgiving birthday, we get the short shrift, and I know what that’s like. So, I wished to make this birthday something extra special in a good way

Well, long story short, we missed the first third of the play. We were stuck in NJ waiting for a bus that was 40 minutes late. On top of that, a 35 minute ride took over an hour.

It’s a 90-minute play, and we missed the first 30 minutes. It’s a comedy in many ways, and the first third is where they set up all the laughs. So, I knew going in that we’d miss all the set-ups.

On the ride in, Olivia wasn’t very talkative, which was not what I hoped for. This was our opportunity to bond and connect.

But, I just let it all be.
I called upon the angels to support all of us, everyone in the bus and the driver, in all just being at Peace with was happening.

I couldn’t stop it, and I couldn’t make it go, and I didn’t wish to have any upset on top of missing the first third of the play. I didn’t need to forgive, because I wasn’t making it wrong. AND, I wasn’t particularly tempted.

I could have gone to old patterns of blame and upset. I could of blamed Olivia for scheduling herself at work so that we had to leave so late, and didn’t have time to have a nice dinner, too. That opportunity was definitely there, but I didn’t want to take it.

You see – I’m STILL having similar experiences to my past, but because I don’t make the same meaning of it, I don’t feel like a loser, and I don’t feel like I’m being punished by God.

I do not know what anything is for!!!! Lesson #25 (my exclamation points added)

Not knowing is my way out of hell, and I have taken it so many times, hell is a distant memory and not a place I dwell. Phew!

And this is the great relief that those who practice with us in Masterful Living. Over the course of the year, we can really make MAJOR headway in dissolving the resistance and finding the sense of Love and mastery that is so life-changing.

After the play – the 1 hour we got to see – which was REALLY good, btw – we went for a bite and we had a really nice 2-hour conversation, and we chatted all the way home. We really connected, and it was fun and good, and it was a great evening.

I know that happened because of forgiveness.
It could have really turned in to a big ugly nightmare of blame, and shame, and resentment that we would have nested in for the next 3 weeks before she goes back to school, but that wasn’t a possibility anymore.

AND, I got to demonstrate to her that I really Love her and the mature thing to do is to not judge and move on. Sweet!

Teach only Love for that is what we are at the super strong titanium center of our being!

Of course, I had to forgive myself for all the years of judge, judge, judging or I couldn’t have gotten there – it wouldn’t be possible.

I discovered that TRUE forgiveness is the way out of hell, and I am forever grateful, which is precisely why I decided to start sharing what I was learning. And now, I’m offering my Forgive & Be Free workshop for free online, on video, and inviting you to join me!

I can tell you that as I focused on having happy healthy relationships, my Abundance has increased. I’m not the only one. It really does work.

Punishment

Saturday, December 8th, 2018

God doesn’t punish us. We perceive our challenges as punishment.

The ego is a punisher. Punishment is a function of separation thinking. We witness it again and again. When something really upsetting happens, we immediately look for whom to blame. That’s pure ego.

The ego loves to blame and point a finger. Spirit just loves to Love. Simple.

We live in a world where it seems like we’re being punished again and again, but it’s just not true. Our choices bring results. That’s cause and effect.

If I withhold Love, it will seem as though Love is being withheld from me.

If I attack, it will seem as though I am being attacked.

If I think poorly of myself, it will seem as though others think poorly of me.

It’s the way this world works.
We see what we believe.

I finally decided to be more loving and compassionate, simply because I felt better about everything when I was kinder and gentler.

It was selfish at first, but then I realized that extending Love brought great benefit, and I liked being a beneficial presence. I also liked being in the flow of Love.

I started to follow my bliss!
My bliss was loving my brothers and sisters, and accepting them as they were!
Who knew it could be so fulfilling?
God knew! LOL.

Of course, I had to forgive myself for all the years of judge, judge, judging.

Now I understand, in truth, we are all innocent and free!

I discovered that TRUE forgiveness is the way out of hell, and I am forever grateful, which is precisely why I decided to start sharing what I was learning and now, I’m offering my Forgive & Be Free workshop for free online, on video and inviting you to join me!

God’s Got This

Friday, December 7th, 2018

Things don’t always go as planned, but they always are for our good. Last night in Finding Freedom class I was sharing that A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson #25 is a big help to me.

I experience many things that don’t go as planned, especially when I’m traveling. I had planned to offer the Forgive & Be Free video workshop this weekend, but now it’s looking like it might have to be postponed. My plan may be changed. And, that’s okay with me.

I don’t know what anything is for.

Until I can see through all directions of time and space, and understand the causation of all things, how could I possibly know what all things are for? It’s absolute insanity for me to think I could know.

Things happen that make no sense at all. And, when confronted with challenges of situations and circumstances that are nonsensical, we must turn to faith in God and a willingness to KNOW that we are loved and being cared for.

When things are not to our liking, the ego mind can go to the false concept that we’re being punished, but that’s not how God works. We don’t really know what things are for, except they are for our good. In this, there are no exceptions. A willingness to KNOW this bring the awareness of that. Truth is always liberating. Always and eternally.

I don’t know what anything is for, but I’d like to.
I don’t know what anything is for, and it’s for my highest and best.
I don’t know what anything is for, and I can trust that it’s for my good!

Today, I get to practice knowing the truth that sets me free. Today is a day to relax the mind into accepting what is, and calling it good and very good, whether I like it or not! Today is a day that I can rest in the knowing that I AM Loved.

If you’d like to shift your whole orientation towards trust and faith in God, as well as in relationships, check out my yearlong Masterful Living Course 2019.

Abundance Activation

Thursday, December 6th, 2018

Abundance 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 Abundance:

Abundance is having plenty.
It’s not about hoarding or having more than we need, but always feeling that there’s plenty – which is a wonderful feeling.

Abundance comes from having a loving, immaculate heart.
We cannot FEEL abundant and withhold Love at the same time.

Abundance as a spiritual quality is about being in the FLOW of the All-Good.

It includes feeling like you’re in the flow of Love and Light which emanates from our heart to the world.

Abundance is directly tied to forgiveness.
Honestly, I find it difficult to imagine how anyone could actually feel abundant and be holding onto resentments, grudges and hurts. No matter how much wealth we might have, we still wouldn’t feel it’s enough. We wouldn’t experience that sense of PLENTY.

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 forgiveness workshop series again!

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

Lifted By Gratitude

Wednesday, December 5th, 2018

Let’s just be grateful, shall we? Even if our family doesn’t agree with us, or even like us. Let’s be grateful. Even if the food comes out wretched, and the weather is awful, let’s just be grateful anyway.

I used to be ungrateful a lot of the time. I missed so many opportunities to experience the healing, expansive power of being thankful.

I’m glad to be aware that I can actively choose to be grateful NO MATTER WHAT. That is the attitude that has helped me transform my deepest pain.

Isn’t the prospect of transforming your deepest pain something that is worth being grateful about?

I know it’s very challenging to be grateful for what you don’t like. So, I learned to focus on being grateful for what I do like.

I’m grateful for sunshine and for snow.
I’m grateful for movies that I enjoy.
I’m grateful for anyone that has ever crossed my path.
I’m grateful that I can hear the birds singing.
I’m grateful that I can pray.
I’m grateful that I can listen to music.
I’m grateful for funny cat videos.
I’m grateful for beautiful flowers and trees.
I’m grateful for delicious food and snacks.
I’m grateful for a good cup of tea.
I’m grateful for beautiful smiles.
I’m grateful that parades and marching bands making me cry happy tears.
I’m grateful that you are my Prayer Partner!

Oprah said that the single most helpful thing that changed her life was being grateful. I heard her say that, in the beginning, sometimes all she could feel grateful for was ice cream and other foods.

That’s an okay place to start. It seems have to done pretty well for Oprah.

We can start there. I AM grateful for ice cream! AND I’m grateful for Oprah, and many other things.

There! I’m smiling, and my vibration feels lifted. I hope yours does, too!

Christ In You

Tuesday, December 4th, 2018

Is it arrogance to recognize there is a savior within ourselves? It may seem that it’s crazy to think that the world could be saved by a one such as you or me, and yet A Course in Miracles makes it plain that we are the savior of the world.

Every day, a number of times a day, I find myself making other things more important than expressing the Christ presence. What could be more important?

Apparently, expressing my feelings of annoyance can be more important. Sometimes expressing my sense of righteousness can sometimes be more important. Other times, my sense of judgment is more important to me, and I’ve lost sight of the Christ.

The thing for me to do is not to despair and not to judge myself but, instead in that very moment, to join with the Light of the Christ within and be grateful that it’s still there, even though I forgot for a moment.

When I choose to Love myself for my “mis-takes” and errors, rather than judge myself, right then I’m healing presence in this world.

Right then, I’m demonstrating that there’s actually more Love being expressed in the world BECAUSE I made the error, and that makes it all a good thing.

Today, I’d like to express the Christ in me and see the Christ in you, and do that all day long! Will you join me? It’s always more fun with company!

Expansion!

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

I’ve come to realize that I’m so fulfilled by the adventure that this spiritual journey is, I don’t need any thrills or adventures like sky diving or sightseeing. It’s not that those things aren’t wonderful, I just am so in love with this spiritual adventure we’re on!

This experience of spiritual growth and development feels like a fast-paced ride with Spirit, keeping up with the guidance and being in tune with so many beautiful souls on this journey with us. It’s constant expansion!

This past few years I’ve felt Spirit has been steadily leading me to create a program to train ministers and teachers, and it’s so fulfilling to see people blooming and blossoming into their gifts and talents.

In my yearlong Masterful Living Course (next one starts January 1st!) as people are releasing the blocks to Love, they clearly begin to feel the call to serve the Light, and many realize they’d like to step into counseling, teaching and ministering. And, like me, they all feel unworthy in the beginning.

Now that unworthiness is truly falling away, and their faith in Spirit is being revealed.

A Course in Miracles, in the Manual for Teachers, tells us:

“They come from all over the world. They come from all religions and from no religion. They are the ones who have answered. The Call is universal. It goes on all the time everywhere. It calls for teachers to speak for It and redeem the world. Many hear It, but few will answer. Yet it is all a matter of time. Everyone will answer in the end, but the end can be a long, long way off. It is because of this that the plan of the teachers was established. Their function is to save time. Each one begins as a single light, but with the Call at its center it is a light that cannot be limited. And each one saves a thousand years of time as the world judges it.” (M-1.2. )

My guidance has been to create a ministerial program that’s also a teaching program. I feel so strongly guided to do this. And, I’d like to ask you to please hold in your prayers that the program that’s created is one that truly serves all beings.

I know what courage it takes to be pulled by a vision and live in inspiration every day. I know what strength it takes to learn to trust deeply and have faith – and I know the struggle, too. I’d like to make things MUCH easier for the people I serve than it has been for me.

I feel confident that Spirit will provide everything that’s necessary for all of us to do our part. It will also take people having the courage to answer the call.

In that same first chapter of the Manual for Teachers it says:

It does not matter who the teacher was before he heard the Call. He has become a savior by his answering. He has seen someone else as himself. He has therefore found his own salvation and the salvation of the world. In his rebirth is the world reborn. (M-1.3. )

Please join with me in knowing that those who are called will answer, and that we have everything we need to go forth into this next adventure in Spirit. Together we’re all rising on this tide of Love. Spirit is lifting us.

Everything is provided with Love. Our charge is to fully receive it and allow it. Please pray that we receive and we allow. Thank you!

Feelings

Sunday, December 2nd, 2018

This weekend I’m in Maine at a training about the Enneagrams in relationships, which is quite interesting to me. (The enneagrams are a personality-typing system that’s spiritually based, and that I’ve found quite helpful.)

Listening to the others in my group share about their feelings and their relationship issues, I am reminded of how much things have changed for me. I am also reminded of how confusing I used to feel that relationships were.

I probably have spent a major portion of my life trying to figure out my own feelings and those of others. It has been a major investment of my time, energy and life-force. It is for most of us. I am so glad that the teachings of A Course in Miracles actually work. It’s a much faster path with far less frustration, but it does require a great willingness.

The leader of this training I’m in points at some of the mental patterns and suggests that we eliminate by noticing them and not choosing them – which is the ACIM way. However, when we work WITH Spirit and stop trying to go it alone, things improve so rapidly it’s astounding.

In this kind of training, there are people who are sharing their experiences and reminding me of how I used to feel so frustrated. I used to feel so hopeless that I could ever effect a change.

I would get triggered by something, and then feel emotionally dragged down an old familiar rabbit hole that I hated. It happened so many times, and so often, that it became an affirmation that there was something terribly wrong with me, and that I had no ability to control my life, or my feelings, or even what I said and did.

I’d “lose it.”

As children, when we lose self-control, the adults are supposed to be able to help us and teach us how to find “it” again – “it” being our center, our right mind. But, many times, they don’t. They’re not present enough in their right mind, and instead of helping us find our way back to center, they simply make us wrong.

I talk with so many people in Masterful Living classes – and it even came up this past week – who were told, as children that their emotions and upsets were wrong. As little precious children so many have been told:

Children are to be seen and not heard.
Stop crying, or Ill give you something to cry about.

Parents are overwhelmed. It’s completely understandable.
Adults who cannot handle their own emotions cannot handle a child who is freaking out.

We get taught that our emotions are wrong.
They’re bad.
They’re unhelpful.
They’re unwanted.

The big messages are:
FEELING IS BAD!
FEELING WILL GET YOU PUNISHED!
FEELING WILL GET YOU IN TROUBLE!
STOP FEELING … OR ELSE!

How can parents teach what they don’t know? It’s not fair to expect them to. And so, we must forgive.

When I was a kid I had long hair, as I do now, and I used to want to have my Mom braid my hair and help me to do things with it. She didn’t have that skill. I remember asking her to braid my hair when I was about 15. She tried to get out of it, warning me that she just wasn’t good at it, but I insisted. So, my Mom did as requested and, you know what? She was right. She wasn’t very good at it. That was when I finally got it. Don’t ask her to do something she’s not good at. It’s not a loving thing to do.

I say, don’t go to the hardware store for frozen yogurt because they don’t have it. (Although, I do think it would be a hot seller. Mostly guys who are working hard go to the hardware store, and they often like a snack.)

We must forgive our parents for not being able to help us with the things they don’t know about. WE are the generation that is turning the tide. We must forgive ALL, so that we can get on with the business of teaching only Love. There’s no more productive way.

One of the things that we’ve found so helpful in Masterful Living is to learn to feel our feelings. It takes real effort for most of us to allow ourselves to actually pause in the midst of things and feel what’s going on.

Our feelings indicate our thought patterns. Thoughts come before feelings. It may not seem like it, but our thoughts reflect our belief systems, and that’s what will determine how we interpret our life and what we think.

Someone can tell me I’m an idiot, but it won’t bother me if I don’t believe it. I won’t even remember that it happened if there’s no hook of belief.

I have carried feelings of shame about something I said or did for decades that no one else remembers.

I remember when I was about 27 years old, I went to a friend’s home, and they had just had made slipcovers for their couch. My friend had made them himself. I was a smoker then, and I accidentally dropped my cigarette on their sofa and burned a hole right through their brand new sofa. I felt so bad and ashamed for that. 20 years later I brought it up to them, and they had no memory of it at all. 20 years of feeling bad and ashamed, all of my own making.

Feelings are so helpful to us, but on our own, they’re overwhelming. That’s why I feel so compelled to support people in bringing these healing opportunities into our lives, and making it easy, attractive, appealing, and even fun to move through things fully and completely, so we can free up all that stuck energy. That’s what our programs are all about.

It takes motivation to make a change. For me, my motivation was misery and pain. I worked with that until I caught a spark of inspiration and began to see that I could really make a difference in my own life, and in the lives of my family and others.

One of my goals is to inspire people to do this inner healing work so they can do it more joyfully.

The purpose statement at the Power of Love Ministry is:

Our one goal is to support people who are actively interested in walking their talk, living the Love, and awakening so they can teach only Love and be truly helpful. We’re doing it together!

This year we’ve taken steps further along the path of offering more classes with more teachers and training Teachers, Ministers, Prayer Practitioners and Spiritual Counselors, and they are blooming and blossoming into POWERFUL light Workers with SO MUCH to offer and share.

This has always been a teaching ministry – to teach only Love and how to really live that. We are sharing what we’re learning and it’s spreading.

What I’ve come to see is that there are so many beautiful Light Workers who have felt hesitant because they don’t feel fully qualified, and they don’t feel fully capable and empowered to do the work they feel called to do.

Of course they feel hesitant if they still are holding onto shame, blame, resentment, regret, guilt, hurt and jealousy from the past.

I get it. For so many years I had a dream of being truly helpful, but I didn’t feel qualified or capable to really GO FOR IT. I didn’t feel worthy.

Now, I know why.
The unforgivness gets in the way.
How can we feel worthy of being the Light of the world when we’re harboring all this darkness?

Our spiritual practice and the work that we’re doing in Masterful Living (which is the foundation for all the trainings) dissolves and resolves that sense of unworthiness, so that people feel capable and qualified to share what they’re learning.

My prayer is that the expansion we’re planning for 2019 will be everything that Spirit intends for it to be, and that many, many more thousands of people will be inspired to truly live and practice the teachings of truth in A Course in Miracles.

My prayer is that my own awakening and our collective awakening is brought forth with more ease and grace. That we give up the resistance to Love and to being loving, and choose to demonstrate our true nature, which is perfect Love.

Together, we awaken one choice at a time.
Real people.
Real miracles.
Proving that God works in our lives and we are not alone.

It’s all about self-forgiveness. When we forgive ourselves we can let the past go and put all of our energy into expressing our true nature which is perfect Love.

And then, we can truly help all of our brothers and sisters, and most especially the children! By demonstrating and teaching only Love, all around us are inspired and uplifted to do things differently. This is why we so much family healing for those in Masterful Living classes.

We can each be a powerful beacon of Love and Light – this is what our calling is.
Everything is pre-installed.
We already have the Kingdom within.

Won’t you please consider being an ACTIVE part of this movement of the heart to shine the Light of Love for those who really wish to join this wave of global awakening?

We’re looking for sponsors who are willing to contribute to a matching campaign – last year we were able to have $25,000 in matching funds, and people rose up to match it for a total of $50,000 raised, and we’ve used that for the free programs we’ve offered this year, and to offer scholarships to those who wish to be a part of our programs and need financial support to do so.

Thankful

Saturday, December 1st, 2018

Being thankful is an essential part of our spiritual practice Learning to be grateful, truly grateful, even for the most difficult and challenging parts of our lives is a POWER-FULL spiritual practice that busts up fearful and limited thinking.

21 years ago, I was still new to meditation. I had been meditating only for about 11 years. I went to a Good Friday service at Agape in Los Angeles. It was a day of meditation and prayer offered in the sanctuary, and people were coming and going all day. I drove over to Agape to steep myself in the Good Friday energy of healing with prayer and meditation at my spiritual community.

I took a seat in the darkened stillness of the Agape sanctuary, and I turned within to meditate and connect with Spirit. A few minutes later I could hear the slight sounds of someone coming in and sitting directly in front of me. After about 30 minutes or so, I opened my eyes to look around, have a stretch, and I saw that my minister, Rev. Michael Beckwith was the one sitting in front of me. I recognized him immediately, as he had been my teacher for several years.

What I also noticed was that he was sleeping. He had his head leaned forward and the movement of his breath and his head were the clear signs of someone who was having a nap sitting up. And, I rejoiced. I did an inner victory dance. I was so grateful.

I was so grateful because at that time I was finding it still so difficult to meditate and have a quiet mind. I was still falling asleep in meditation. I was still so distracted in the stillness. There was stillness in the room, but my mind was moving like the Indianapolis 500. Vroom, vroom, vroom!

I was so grateful, because I believed this: If my teacher was sleeping in meditation at church, then I wasn’t so bad.

I was grateful, because I felt that I wouldn’t always be at the place I was, and I was glad that I was beginning (after 10 years of meditating on and off) at the place of feeling that I couldn’t have a complete inhalation or exhalation without an intrusive thought.

I was grateful, precisely because I was starting at the very bottom starting point, and I knew that I wouldn’t stay there. I KNEW I would make progress. And, I knew that someday I would teach meditation, and I would be able to say “When I started, I couldn’t take a breath without a thought. When I started meditating, my mind was like a barrel full of hungry monkeys.”

And, I knew that when I would eventually teach meditation, and share about where I started from, people would relax and feel more comfortable, because they were starting in the same place as me, and because I didn’t stay there, they might not, either.

And that’s Thanksgiving without the turkey.

What if you flipped your opinion about yourself or someone else the way I did? Instead of feeling like a lost loser or a failure, what if you celebrate the growth that’s unfolding, and claim your spiritual destiny of awakening awareness?

Let’s keep our eye on the prize, and know that wherever we are, we’re still headed in one and only one direction – awakening and Enlightenment. Let’s focus on what’s unfolding, rather than what has been. Let’s be thankful that we’re spiraling upward together.

Gratitude lifts our vibration and helps us to see, feel, hear, and know more clearly. That’s where we place our attention now, and we’re grateful we can choose to be grateful!

Reincarnation Perfection

Friday, November 30th, 2018

Over the years, I’ve had numerous conversations with people who really didn’t like having a human experience and couldn’t wait for it to be over, but weren’t going to take their own life. They experience a deep frustration with life, and aren’t enjoying it.

I can understand that. I recall having that “Stop the planet, I want to get off” feeling.

Yet, there’s another choice besides just feeling frustrated for the rest of our days.

To me, one of the coolest things in this human experience is that the Higher Holy Spirit Self will miraculously bring forth a healing transformation, if we allow it. All the consequences of any and all unloving choices can be undone, and we can feel joyful and grateful to have this human life.

Misery is always an option, but so are miracles.

In my understanding of the nature of this human experience, we’ve actually co-authored a script that has been gently planned by the Higher Holy Spirit Self and perfectly encoded with the expansion and healing that we desire most.

Nothing is happening TO us, it’s all being done BY us and THROUGH us.

The belief in punishment is so strong in the human race consciousness. My sense is that people misinterpret what karma really is, and they think of it as a system of rewards and punishments. But that’s pure ego thinking. There is no part of Spirit’s system that includes God-ordained punishment and rewards.

Instead of punishment and rewards, we get what we choose.
This may seem hard to believe, but if we are willing to really see the truth and feel it, we will.

Instead of focusing on what we don’t like, and the pain of what we’ve chosen in the past, let’s put our full attention on choosing what we’d really like to experience now. Let’s open up our mind to the highest possibilities of Love and Light, and be led by that guiding Light.

Here’s where, once again, we must forgive ourselves, truly forgive, in order to move onward and upward into the Light. It’s worth the investment of time and energy. Self-forgiveness is the gift we share with all beings!

Self-forgiveness breaks the cycle of reincarnation and brings us into the Atonement, which is the full recognition that there is no separation.

Reincarnation is our choice. We’re not made to experience this life. We choose it in order to learn, and we can always find the Joy in learning!

Now, I’m so glad to walk this path with you and share this life – I see and feel the Beauty and perfection, and it’s thrilling to discover it. Heaven is at hand now!

I AM Grateful!

Thursday, November 29th, 2018

I had a lovely birthday yesterday, even though it didn’t go according to my plan. It’s so great to be able to go with the flow of Love and not have an attachment to a plan.

So, I got a rental car because I was planning to do some things for self-pampering and self-care. Mani-pedi and massage were both on my list.

Well, as it turned out, my precious nephew was home sick with a bad cold, and no one else was here to be with him. So, of course, I wished to cancel my plans and hangout with Mikey. I cooked him a special breakfast, and a special lunch with all kinds of wonderful nourishing food and drinks to help him feel better.

I gave the pampering instead of getting it. LOL.

And, of course, I couldn’t have been happier, even though Mikey felt so poorly. We love to have time together, so we watched some favorite shows, and discovered something new, and just hung out in between his naps.

I was going to do a Facebook live, but that got put off. I hope to do one today.

I had a wonderful dinner with friends, and that was lovely. I feel truly blessed, just because I’m at Peace with what is. That’s a real gift for which I am so grateful.

I had not one complaint all day, and was happy for the opportunity to stay in connection with my loving heart.

My prayer is to live in a grievance-free world, and let it begin with me!

My Birthday Prayer 2018

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

Today is my birthday, and it’s been my tradition to invite you to pray with me. As you may know, I publish a recorded prayer every day, which I’ve been doing since 2007. I started with the daily prayers because one of my dear counseling clients had said to me, “I was so upset in the middle of the night last night, and I wanted so bad to call you, but I just couldn’t wake you up.”

I began to invite Spirit to show me how I could be more helpful, and I got inspired to use a voicemail service to record the Prayer for Today, and I’ve been loving doing it as part of my daily spiritual practice for 11 years now. What a blessing to have Prayer Partners all over the world.

My personal prayer is to awaken from the dream of separation NOW and BE truly helpful. The purpose statement at the Power of Love Ministry is:

Prayer is SO powerful. I’ve experienced so many miracles through prayer, and one of the most amazing miracles is the answered prayer that this Power of Love Ministry is. Thanks to the help and good work of many people, we are supporting the raising of the vibration of this planet.

This year we’ve taken steps further along the path of offering more classes with more teachers and training Teachers, Ministers, Prayer Practitioners and Spiritual Counselors and they are blooming and blossoming into POWERFUL light Workers with SO MUCH to offer and share.

This has always been a teaching ministry – to teach only Love and how to really live that. We are sharing what we’re learning, and it’s spreading.

What I’ve come to see is that there are so many beautiful Light Workers who have felt hesitant because they don’t feel fully qualified, and they don’t feel fully capable and empowered to do the work they feel called to do.

I get it. For so many years I had a dream of being truly helpful, but I didn’t feel qualified or capable to really GO FOR IT. I didn’t feel worthy.

Worthiness is the classic issue that people struggle with.
Self-judgment gets in the way.

People think “Who am I to help anyone else when I still have problems I can’t figure out?”

Our spiritual practice and the work that we’re doing in Masterful Living (which is the foundation for all the training) dissolves and resolves that sense of unworthiness, so that people feel capable and qualified to share what they’re learning.

My prayer is that the expansion we’re planning for 2019 will be everything that Spirit intends for it to be, and that many, many more thousands of people will be inspired to truly live and practice the teachings of truth in A Course in Miracles.

My prayer is that my own awakening, and our collective awakening, is brought forth with more ease and grace. That we give up the resistance to Love and to being loving and choose to demonstrate our true nature, which is perfect Love.

I am so excited for the free programs we’re offering now!

This year we offered a 5-Day Challenge to End Self-Sabotage and Self-medication, and it was a HUGE success. We got so much positive feedback and stories of people’s breakthroughs. We plan to offer another one in early January!

We also offered many three-part forgiveness workshops – live, online on video on Zoom so that people could see and work together, and that was a huge success as well.

We plan to offer another Forgive & Be Free workshop series in December!

My feeling is that, while many people love the Living A Course in Miracles classes that we’ve done – and we’ve done over 150 classes that you can still listen to and enjoy – people receive more benefit when they do the work in a group. And so, that’s where we’re placing our attention.

My hope is that we’ll train more than 200 Facilitators next year to support the Miracle Circles. It’s ambitious, but that’s how Spirit is, because in God there are no limitations, no unworthiness to undo.

More than 20 years ago, Michael Beckwith shared about an article he’d read that interviewed a group of individuals who had accomplished extraordinary and unbelievable things. One thing they all had in common was they all said this:

Had they known that it was EVEN POSSIBLE to accomplish what they set out to achieve, they would have set their sights higher.

And that’s why I hold world Peace, global awakening, an end to all suffering in our lifetime.

It’s possible and WE, yes, WE are the ones who can bring it into being.

Together, we awaken one choice at a time.
Real people.
Real miracles.
Proving that God works in our lives and we are not alone.

According to A Course in Miracles, prayer is the medium of miracles. And it’s all about Self-forgiveness. When we forgive ourselves we can let the past go and put all of our energy into expressing our true nature which is perfect Love.

We can each be a powerful beacon of Love and Light – this is what our calling is.
Everything is pre-installed.
We already have the kingdom within.

I love this passage from ACIM and I hold it high before us as we move into this next phase of our adventure:

It is impossible to remember God in secret and alone.
For remembering Him means you are not alone,
and are willing to remember it.
Take no thought for yourself,
for no thought you hold is for yourself.
If you would remember your Father,
let the Holy Spirit order your thoughts
and give only the answer with which He answers you.
Everyone seeks for love as you do, but
knows it not unless he joins with you in seeking it.
If you undertake the search together, you bring
with you a light so powerful that what you see is given meaning. T-14.X.10.

Won’t you please consider being a part of this movement of the heart to shine the Light of Love for those who really wish to join this wave of global awakening?

Today, for my birthday, I ask that you consider sharing your support and making a contribution to bring forth the Miracle Circles and so much more!

We’re looking for sponsors who are willing to contribute to a matching campaign – last year we were able to have $25,000 in matching funds and people rose up to match it for a total of $50,000 raised and we’ve used that for the free programs we’ve offered this year, and to offer scholarships to those who wish to be a part of our programs and need financial support to do so.

In Case of Emergency

Tuesday, November 27th, 2018

Having a strong spiritual practice to lean into when there’s an emergency makes a difference beyond anything we can comprehend. When the tough stuff of life happens, being able to NOT take it personally, and NOT get triggered into victim consciousness, is a great relief.

It can seem hard to imagine, but we really can go from feeling like life is happening to us and we’re being punished, to seeing that everything is happening for us. Everything is working for our benefit, and we can train our mind to see that – to see what’s actually true, instead of the repeating patterns of negativity and separation.

It’s difficult to believe, but as A Course in Miracles says, we don’t actually see what’s there, what’s true, what’s real. Instead we see what we want to see. We can have strong resistance tot he idea that everything is just as we wish it to be.

Why would we wish for a loved one to die? A flood? Hurricane? Earthquake? Bankruptcy? Cancer?

And yet, all of these traumatic events can bring so much relief, healing and benefit if we are willing to see that all things work together for our good and there are no exceptions at all.

Opening our mind to the true and lasting healing is such a beautiful shift in consciousness. We can learn to see with new eyes and true eyes.

If you’re going through an emergency, you may find what I share on my radio show today helpful! I hope so!

My intention is to make clear, that we can use the challenges to help us rise in the Light!

Guidance

Monday, November 26th, 2018

Consider this – for years and years, I would pray for guidance and not follow it. Ugh. Can you relate?

I used to feel like such an idiot.
Imagine asking Spirit to give you a gift of insight and healing,
and then you don’t like the color it comes in, so you reject it.

That was me.
For a very long time.

This is one of the most valuable ways I learned that NOT following guidance was self-sabotage, and following guidance is Self-Love.

I also learned the value of self-forgiveness, because I had to forgive myself for what seemed like a waste of many years that I could have been happier, more fulfilled, more loving, more kind … more everything good.

Through my experience, I learned so much and now I get to share it, and so there’s been no waste.  I’ve taken everything I learned and put it into what I share.

God’s Amazing Grace has blessed me – all things work together for my good, and our good, and there isn’t one exception – exceptions aren’t even possible!

Now, because of my learning, I follow my guidance, even when it doesn’t make sense to me, and even when it’s not convenient.  (OK not about everything. Sometimes I just really, really would like to watch another episode on Netflix!)

I’ve learned that what really doesn’t make sense is to NOT follow the guidance.

For years, I’ve been doing research about how to heal the mind faster, let go of the past with more ease and speed, and how to be the very best teacher and counselor I can be.  And, my intuition has been my guide.  I could never have figured this stuff out.  I had to have Spirit show me.

First, my counseling clients taught me SO MUCH.  Sitting with them and really listening with a heart filled with Love for them, inviting Spirit to guide me, I learned a tremendous amount about the way the ego-intellect works, and the way that Spirit works in our hearts.   I couldn’t have learned it any other way.  You can’t get it from a book.

Practical experience is a great teacher – and direct insight is the best teacher!

Working with so many people in my classes, I’ve learned even more about how to be more clear, and how to really support people in ways that are profoundly life-changing.  I’m consistently blown away by how much people change their lives and their relationships.  I’m often surprised at the physical healing people have.

Chronic issues of physical, emotional, and mental pain are healed in miraculous ways by people who didn’t believe it was possible for them!

This is the promise of these A Course in Miracles teachings, and we’re proving that it’s true.

I’ve had the perfect research lab.
It’s not enough to listen to guidance,
we have to follow it to have the breakthrough

When people prove it for themselves, they never feel the same way about life again. They now know that Spirit is with them, always WITH them and always FOR them, and they can choose the healing or not.

There’s just no going back from that place of awakening awareness.

Knowing is SO different than believing.

And now, the Power of Love Ministry is so much more than just me. We’ve really grown. Our programs are so much more comprehensive than they’ve ever been before, so that people are growing and responding faster than before – because of the extra support.

And, we’d like to expand that to more and more free programs in 2019,
to reach more people around the world,
and inspire them to join us and become more involved in this miraculous community.

And, we’d like your support,
as well as your increased participation.

We’re laying the groundwork now for new free programs next year to support more people in community.

So, I’m asking you to please consider making your own contribution, if you’re not already.

You can make a 1-time donation, or you can make a monthly commitment to support which helps us to plan and budget.

We’re also looking for people who would be willing to make a larger contribution that could be part of our matching program. Last year, we had several people donate a total of $25,000 and we were able to raise another $25,000 to match it. This enabled so much that we’ve been able to expand into this year.

We’re seeing the tangible results of the expansion. Won’t you please consider being a part of this movement of the heart, to shine the Light of Love for those who really wish to join this wave of global awakening?

Miraculous Healing

Sunday, November 25th, 2018

Life is so full of twists and turns,and things we never imagined. One of the things in life I’m most grateful for is the power and potency of forgiveness. Unforgiveness blocks the flow of Love, and forgiveness unleashes it to cascade like a mighty healing river in our lives.

My favorite Lesson in the A Course in Miracles Workbook is #68, “Love holds no grievances”. We’re told that those who hold grievances will forget who they are. It’s been true for me. And, He says that if we let the grievances go we’ll remember who we really are – this also has been true for me.

We read these things and can feel they’re true, but we often don’t see how it applies to us. That’s how I used to feel. I had belief in the truth, but I just didn’t really believe it would work for ME. I was too messed up, too angry, too bitter, too hurt.

But, it did work for me, BECAUSE I was willing. I didn’t give COMPLETELY up. I wanted to, but I couldn’t quite give completely up. And so, because of that little bit of willingness, it even worked for ME — crazy, complaining, troubled old me! And that feels completely miraculous.

It even works for someone as bad, and wrong, and stuck as me.

I once was lost, and now am found.

And that’s why I started to share in the ACIM Study Group I started in 2007, and then in the Living A Course in Miracles classes and my A Course in Miracles radio show beginning in 2011.

For me, I am crystal clear that what ACIM shares with us – that our brothers and sisters are our salvation – is 100% true. I love connecting in community, and being able to collaborate and share with others who are interested in letting the past go, and living without grievances. We may not know HOW, but we can learn to ALLOW the Holy Spirit to do the heavy lifting of healing.

Together, we are so much stronger.

Together, we transcend time and space to have our healing by working together online and in person.

Just think – at the Power of Love Ministry we’ve offered around 240 classes – no charge to anyone – to more than 60,000 people around the world, in well over 100 countries.

Last week was the 370th episode of my weekly ACIM radio show – all of which have been transcribed. And now we’re moving them to YouTube so more people can find them – and to expand the community of people from around the world who can listen and read along at the same time.

Thousands of people are using our A Course in Miracles App. And, more than a thousand people are enjoying the inspirational text messages we send.

We also offer support to ACIM  Study Groups and people who’d like to start them so that they don’t have to feel alone and on their own.

We’ve built a Global Events Calendar & Map to list ACIM Study Groups and ACIM events and more and more ACIM teachers like Jon Mundy, Gary Renard, David Hoffmeister and more are listing their events there so that people can more easily find the ACIM events that are near them.

And, there’s a lot of expansion planned for next year.

We’ve found that people who are in my yearlong course, Masterful Living, are healing so much, and so rapidly, that they would like to give back and support the greater community.

They’re becoming Spiritual Counselors, Prayer Practitioners, Teachers and Ministers, and they’re preparing to offer more and more services to share with others and support the collective healing.

We’re going to be offering online Miracle Circles – similar to a Study Group, but focused specifically on living A Course in Miracles, rather than studying it.

I’ve been offering a daily recorded prayer – my Prayer for Today, which I now send along with my Daily Shot of Spiritual Espresso written inspiration since 2007. 11 years of daily prayers.

We transcribe these for the hearing impaired, and it’s all available at no cost.

We have thousands of Prayer Partners all over the world – and in 2019 we’d like to start offering live prayer calls for the Prayer Practitioners to lead.

We’d also like to build a Daily Prayer APP.

ACIM tells us that prayer is the medium of miracles, and it certainly has been in my life.

And I’d like to ask you to join us by making a donation to support the growth and expansion of these programs. We have many volunteers, but it takes funds to expand the staff and to pay for all the costs associated with these offerings.

Please consider making your own contribution, if you’re not already. You can make a 1 time donation or you can make a monthly commitment to support which helps us to plan and budget.

We’re also looking for people who would be willing to make a larger contribution that could be part of our matching program. Last year we had several people donate a total of $25,000 and we were able to raise another $25,000 to match it. This enabled so much that we’ve been able to expand into this year.

Releasing Old Victim Patterns

Saturday, November 24th, 2018

Old hidden patterns come up for healing when we have holiday times and family times. Yesterday, I noticed there was some energy of things coming up for healing, and other friends felt it too. The moon went full yesterday, and that is a time for releasing what doesn’t serve and harvesting the learning!

Do you have a repetitive cycle of being a victim in some way? A lot of people do. Do you ever have fantasies of being a victim? Have you ever let people take advantage of you, just so you could make them feel guilty and bad about it afterwards? These are some crazy patterns we get to deal with in our Earth experience! No wonder it can feel so intense.

All those victim stories and victim mind trips take up a huge amount of energy. It’s a bit like the criminal mastermind who works so hard to find a way to steal, cheat, and lie to get money, when they could apply that same genius capacity to creating something wonderful and achieving abundance that way. These are the crazy negative patterns that suck the life out of our life.

A single belief is the foundation for a myriad of negative thoughts. It’s as though the belief is a host for a bunch of spiders building negative web patterns that are very sticky in our mind. Let’s give the Higher Holy Spirit Self the heavy lifting.

What’s SO valuable is to recognize them and interrupt them. As much as possible
Interrupting these patterns is a BIG part of healing them.

When we interrupt the pattern, rather than investing in it, as usual, we begin to see that we are not the pattern.

The victim pattern isn’t part of us, no pattern is. The pattern has no power or volition until we invest our belief in it.

There aren’t any REAL benefits to being a victim, but it can seem like there are. That might seem crazy, but next time you feel the victim story running in your mind, the next time you start fantasizing about being a victim in some way, shape, or form, ask yourself what the value of that is to you. Ask yourself, what is the perceived benefit? Is the benefit that being a victim seems to offer really the thing that motivates you?

Interrupting these patterns makes such a difference in our lives!

You can do it when you give the heavy lifting to the Higher Holy Spirit Self! You make the decision to interrupt the pattern of victimhood and then, when the opportunities come, be willing to choose what’s unfamiliar. No one else can do it for you, but all of life does it WITH you when you say YES! Why not decide now?

Our decision to be our true Self, rather than acting like a victim, makes a real difference. Hold to the decision, Partner UP, and be willing to practice. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you can release the patterns of a life time!

I share what I learned that shifted me out of victim patterns in my Masterful Living Course 2019. Registration is open NOW with an early-bird price to inspire you to commit now and not get distracted.

Life Purpose

Friday, November 23rd, 2018

Life feels so much more aligned and balanced when we know what our life purpose is.  Once we know we can fulfill it, and that’s a great feeling.

I’ve never met anyone who didn’t have an extraordinary life purpose.  Admittedly, not everyone has been present with themselves enough to know what their purpose is.

Some have a clear understanding of their purpose and reject it flatly, over and over again.  Others dance around it.  Can anyone can be truly happy unless they are on the path to fulfilling their Divine Purpose?

Even those who have no clear idea of their purpose know that deep fulfillment is in the living of that purpose.

A Course in Miracles has a beautiful prayer for Life Purpose:

I am here only to be truly helpful.  
I am here to represent Him Who sent me. 
I do not have to worry about what to say or what to do, 
because He Who sent me will direct me.  
I am content to be wherever He wishes, 
knowing He goes there with me. 
I will be healed as I let Him teach me to heal.

For many years, I either ran from, or simply turned my attention away from, what I knew to be my purpose. I was being called to be a minister, to study our God nature, and the spiritual laws and principles and to walk in them. Initially, I had associated my vocation with a loftiness and an arduousness that made it seem far from my reach.

I thought I had to be flawless.  I thought I had to live a life of extreme holiness, and that felt completely unattainable to me.

Fortunately, in my desire to know and understand the spiritual nature of life, I discovered that there was no part of the Divine that expected me to be anything other than I was.  There was no great opinion holder in the sky judging me.

Instead, there is an Infinite source of Love, encouragement and support responding in every moment.  I don’t have to be a saint or live without falling down.  I only have to pick myself up with as much Love as I can muster every time I fall.  I only have to keep my attention on what I desire most: Love, Beauty and Wisdom.

The miracle of Divine Law and Infinite Grace is that it is always seeking me. I don’t even have to think about it anymore.  It no longer requires major effort, because it’s not far away.  Like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, I’ve discovered that I’ve had the power all along.  And, just as quickly, I am home in the Love of God.

Today I treasure the inspired words of the wonderful mystic, Christian D. Larson, who writes in his powerful classic The Pathway of Roses , “The lilies of the field are all that beautiful lilies can possibly be, and they depend wholly upon the powers divine that are within them.  Accordingly, they are an inspiration to all the world.” 

Masterful Living Course 2019 is open NOW with an early-bird price to inspire you to commit now and not get distracted.  And, you can book an Exploratory Call to speak with one of the Spiritual Counselors who has already done my Masterful Living Course and been a part of the community for years – they can answer any and all of your questions, free of charge, now!

Gods Amazing Grace

Thursday, November 22nd, 2018

I woke up this morning at my brother’s home in New Jersey. The the family is gone to my sister-in-law’s in San Antonio, Texas. Bella the cat and I are having Thanksgiving with friends. The house is quiet and cold. Something’s going on with the heat, but I am so very grateful for things just as they are.

I make morning prayers in bed before I get out of bed – often it takes an hour, not less than 15 minutes, even when I have to be up and out before 4:30 a.m. I love the prayer time. Prayer has completely altered my life. As A Course in Miracles says, “Prayer is the medium of miracles.” My life proves it, and that’s why I feel compelled to share every day.

So, I woke up this morning and began to pray, and the thought came in about what I would write for today. Spirit nudged, “What am I most grateful for?”

Even though I’ve been asked that question many times, I always check to see what the answer is, and has it changed at all.

The first time I can remember being asked that question that I still recall what I said was the very first weekend of ministerial training with the Ernest Holmes Institute. It was a weekend retreat and orientation at the Casa de Maria Retreat Center in Montecito, CA (which was devastated by the fires this year).

That was 2001, and my answer is about the same – although I have changed so much. SO MUCH shifting in my awareness, and yet here’s what it is:

I am most grateful for my awareness of Spirit.

My awareness of Spirit — which is also awareness of truth and Love, Beauty, Wisdom, Harmony, Wholeness and all of the spiritual qualities of God, the whole Kingdom, kit and caboodle — is what makes this journey in life “wonder-full”. Where it was once unbearable, it is now an adventure in Love and Light – for real.

I was sharing in Masterful Living class this week that, most families have one person in the family who seems to carry most of the emotion and drama. That was certainly me. I was constantly exploding with upset.

“I do not know what anything is for.” Lesson 25

Now I can see that this was the perfect healing and learning for me. Back then, I just felt tortured, bad and wrong.

When I was in my 20’s, my Mom told me that she thought I felt things more than most people, and I thought she was just not able to feel her own feelings as well as I’d like her to. But, now I know she was correct.

It takes great learning to understand that all things, events, encounters and circumstances are helpful.” M-4.I.A.4.

I am an empath. I feel a lot more than other people, and almost all of my spiritual student friends are either highly intuitive, highly empathic or highly sensitive, or some combination.

The ability to recognize what we’re REALLY feeling is just beyond the mental logjam of complaints, worries, opinions, judgments, grievances and criticisms that block the awareness of Love’s presence. Once I got some real headway with that, my intuition opened right up.

The more I take out the trash of my complaints I clear from my awareness, the more Clarity I have. The more I let that past go, the more I see everyone’s perfection, including my own.

It takes great learning to understand that all things, events, encounters and circumstances are helpful.” M-4.I.A.4.

I sometimes feel like the song Amazing Grace was written from my own heart. The miracle of healing has been so persistent and so amazing to me, and yet I know, through my teaching over the last ten years, that God’s Infinite Grace is there for us all. Not one left out. We must claim it.

I once was the drama queen in my family who would seem to cause so much upset and bring everyone down. I got labeled and blamed. I now know that I was carrying a lot of emotion for others. I was the one that wouldn’t be quiet about it.

“I’m never upset for the reason I think.” Lesson 5

My heroes are Jesus, Harriet Tubman, Joel Goldsmith, Mohandas K. Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr. – liberators, each one of them. First we liberate ourselves, and then we have something to share.

Through self-forgiveness I learned that I could let the past go.
Through practicing nonviolence and nonjudgment, I learned I could practice being loving instead of being attacking. I learned HOW to change my mind and my heart through daily spiritual practice, and prayer has been the foundation of that. Prayer truly is “the medium of miracles”.

Where once I was lost, now I AM found.

Where once I would drag my whole family down with me into the sinkhole of my anger and upset, I now have been able to raise them up with me.

“What could you not accept, if you but knew that everything that happens, all events, past, present and to come, are gently planned by One Whose only purpose is your good?” Lesson 135

All of my relationships have become enjoyable, loving and kind. There are still some bumps, but not many, and they ALWAYS bring more Love and Light – they’re the way of clearing and healing when there’s resistance.

Now, when there’s a bump, I can hold the view from the mountaintop, like King spoke about on the day before he was assassinated.

The view from the mountaintop is the one of knowing that all is being brought to Love and Light.

Nothing can stop it.
And we are here to speed it along.

This day is Thanksgiving Day, such a big family holiday.
Let’s teach only Love today.

Fear arises from lack of love.
The only remedy for lack of love is perfect love.
Perfect love is the atonement.” T-2.VI.7.

The Atonement is the recognition that there is no separation.
All appearances of separation are false.

As I said in my Daily Spiritual Espresso on Sunday this week, it brings tears to my eyes still, because I still have a little bit of sadness for all of the opportunities to be loving that I missed. It still feels a little bit real to me.

But I don’t look back, except to continue to harvest the Wisdom and move forward with more Love, and more Love, and more Love. “Love holds no grievances.”

We can all be the fulcrum point of healing in our family.
We can all rely upon the Spirit for our healing.
We can all practice true forgiveness, which is non-judgment.

It requires no longer giving Love and acceptance in order to get anything back. We must give without attachment.

No need for recognition or appreciation.
We give Love because it’s our Divine Opportunity to be our True Self and be truly helpful.

It all gets so much easier to practice when we forgive ourselves for our debts and our trespasses.

I had to forgive myself for all the things I felt guilty about so I was no longer feeling horrible about myself. Self-forgiveness is the only way.

And that’s why I offer my Forgiveness Letter tool
Please get it and use it. It only works if you do it.

No matter how far gone things may seem in our relationships, Spirit knows the way back to Love if we’re willing, and even if we’ve never been there.

If we’re willing, Spirit will show us the way. That’s the Grace that is so amazing, so pure and uncomplicated. Our willingness is all that’s required.

Together we rise in God. And for this, and so much more, I am eternally grateful!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Travel In Spirit’s Love

Wednesday, November 21st, 2018

Here, in the United States, it’s the biggest travel day of the year in anticipation of the Thanksgiving holiday tomorrow, which is the biggest family holiday of the entire year. For those outside the U.S., it might be difficult to comprehend how big a holiday our Thanksgiving is.

With all the travels and preparations today and tomorrow, even if you’re not celebrating, it’s a great time to shift the habit of rushing and bring Spirit with us into whatever we’re doing.

I’ve learned that if I pray before everything, and make prayers during even the most simplest tasks, everything goes more smoothly. It’s a great habit to get into.

In Masterful Living, people often tell me that they took the class to be more connected with Spirit, and that adding the habit of prayer to their life really made a difference for them. Now they love to pray, and they have shifted so much by choosing to include the Infinite Love of God in their day.

We can use simple statements that are powerful positive affirmations and that act like prayers:

Wherever I go, whatever I do, I AM a blessing and I AM blessed.
I walk in the Love of God sharing life’s blessings with all.
I AM an eternal being and time is always working for me.
I AM in tune with the Infinite and all is well in my world.
Spirit’s infinite Love comes to me from all directions and I AM a great receiver!

When we walk around the world thinking these thoughts WITH God, then our high vibration is a magnet for ease, grace and goodness. Oh, there’s another one!

I walk in the world as a magnet for God’s ease, grace and goodness!
My life is the life of God, and I live it with ease, grace and generosity of heart.

I really enjoy tuning into these powerful statements of positive affirmation. They really are the truth, and they help us to change our mind and keep ourselves focused on what’s most valuable.

I especially find that these kinds of positive affirmations help when I feel stressed by trying to make a plane, a train, or beat the traffic, etc. in my very frequent travels.

I used to get freaked out by packing and preparing for a trip. I would leave too much to the last minute and get super stressed trying to pack perfectly. I used this affirmation for that:

All is well. All is well. All is well.

It also works when skiing and the terrain becomes black diamond or moguls, and I’m not up for it!

God loves me. All is well. All is well. All is well.
God is loving me through everything and everyone I meet today.
All is well. All is well. All is well!!!

Instead of buying into other people’s stress, be the one who is tuned UP with Spirit and BE the Peace of God. It really works. Spirit will do all the heavy lifting of figuring out how to arrange everything, when we’re willing.

Every day is a great day to practice. And, if we forget, we can start again immediately!

Travel safe in the Love of God today!

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!

Tomorrow is the biggest travel day all year for people in the United States. Thursday’s Thanksgiving holiday propels people all over America to come together with loved ones for this non-religious holiday.

As one who travels a lot with long plane rides, long drives in the car, and lots of trips to stay with others in their homes all over the world, what I’ve learned is that it’s much more pleasant when we take the angels with us.

Some people think that I’m a bit wack-a-do to discuss the angels, but some of my favorite parts in A Course in Miracles are referring to angels.

“Around you angels hover lovingly,
to keep away all darkened thoughts of sin,
and keep the light where it has entered in.
Your footprints lighten up the world,
for where you walk forgiveness gladly goes with you.” T-26.IX.7.

We’re all entitled to angel companions, they’re always around us.  Ask and ye shall receive!

Send the angels ahead of you to make the way clear in traffic, in your family, in a hotel. I do it all the time. Fill the places you go – and even the traffic – with prayers for ease and grace.

Remember, as you travel, the brother or sister you might encounter on the road may be going through a very tough time. Many people seem to make their transition around this time of year.

Some people may be having the first Thanksgiving without their mom, dad, husband, wife, child or other loved one.  For many, that’s a really difficult thing to go through.

Anger Free Living

Monday, November 19th, 2018

I would never have believed that I wouldn’t be angry a lot of the time. I really just thought that I was an angry person. Some people are happy, some people are sad, and I was angry.

I felt like I was hostile by nature, but ‘taint so!

Until I proved it to myself, it was impossible to imagine that we have the ability to heal all of our own anger and hurt. Many people I’ve met don’t actually wish to heal the pain. It’s not the majority of folks I meet, but still, there’s quite a few.

In fact, if we’re still dragging around the same old painful baggage, we can ask ourselves, why we wouldn’t wish to heal all our pain? There may be a legitimate reason (in the logic of the ego).

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 angry and resentful is our only choice. And yet, deep down, most of us know it’s not true. It’s he craziest thing in this world!

It’s almost as if we DESERVE to be unhappy.

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?

I particularly see this in our Masterful Living community. People who are healing their life, their heart and their mind, turn right around help the person who comes in after them. It’s so beautiful to see. It’s a real community of like-minded souls who are rising up together.

I share what I learned that shifted me out of the anger and hurt in my Masterful Living Course 2019. Registration is open NOW with an early-bird price to inspire you to commit now and not get distracted. At no charge, you can also book an Exploratory Call  to speak with one of the Spiritual Counselors who has already done the program, and they can help you be clear if this is right for you, right now.

Family Healing

Sunday, November 18th, 2018

I’ve shared a lot about how much my mother’s journey with terminal illness helped me to really LIVE A Course in Miracles. It was the incentive that changed my life.

I used the holidays, such as Thanksgiving, to accelerate our family’s healing, too. I’ve shared, many times, that I’ve had so many of my birthdays on Thanksgiving Day, or the day before, the day after, and all around the holiday.

I’ve had my family eat my birthday cake without me – when I was just in the next room, they didn’t even bother to call me to join them as they ate my cake. Yes, it’s true.

I’ve had my best friends in the whole world not wish me a happy birthday and completely forget it was my birthday.

I’ve organized things to celebrate my birthday with friends and with family, on different occasions, and everyone bailed on me.

And, I’ve learned to get over it all.

I’ve also ruined many a family holiday because I got triggered, and got so angry that I just destroyed any possibility of a good time. I’ve even done it when everyone came to my house and I cooked the meal.

I used to feel as though I got so triggered, so intensely and so frequently, that there was no hope for me to have good relationships. It seemed perfectly impossible to me. I really felt hopeless.

But, I learned that I wasn’t helpless.
I learned to do what I now call PARTNERING UP.
I learned to pray, effectively and with great sincerity, and prayers work.

Prayers REALLY work, but you do have to pray effectively, and then be willing to accept the answered prayer.

For example, when my precious Mom was so sick, I prayed to release all blocks to Love between us so that we could be completely in the flow of Love before she left this world. I was so intent on it.

Spirit gave me the opportunity to go to Maine to visit my parents many times in the last years of my Mom’s life, and to spend more time with her.

On one visit, it was planned that I would go for two weeks to take my Mom to her radiation treatments. The drive alone was a three-hour round trip from the island where my parents lived and the hospital. It took more than four hours to do the whole trip, and it was winter time, so we often took longer because of snow and ice.

My mother had about a month of treatments, so I took the middle two weeks, to spare my father having to do all the driving.

It was a gray, wintry bleak time, but I found stand up comedy, and audio books, and things that I thought my Mom and I could enjoy together and listen to.

During those two weeks, I had made a commitment to myself that I wasn’t going to judge my mother for anything, no matter what. I was going to completely Love and accept her. This was my big opportunity to have healing.

There were times when I’d have to go into the bedroom, shut the door, and get down on my knees to pray to release all judgments.

This is when I learned that Higher Holy Spirit Self really would take the thoughts out of my mind, if I was sincerely wishing to let them go. I had so much mental healing in that time.

I prayed, and prayed, and prayed to give up the need to be right. I prayed to release every trigger and every unhealed resentment and regret.

I didn’t realize it then, but now I know that I punished my Mom for tolerating a lot of my anger and upset. I felt so guilty for being mean to her and saying mean things.

That guilt turned into fear and frustration that I couldn’t find a way out. If she had pushed back, and been able to help me with it more, that would have been great – but that was not my path of learning.

I see, now, that everything I learned I get to share in my classes and help people with it step-by-step because I had to learn to rely on Spirit to show me. I had to really focus, and pay attention, and learn the way out.

I had to give up all blame in order to get out.
I had to rely up on Spirit, and find my way into my loving heart, because Love is the only healer and the only way out.

It felt so impossible to me, but I couldn’t bear the pain of failure anymore. I had to believe that Spirit would lead me. I had to learn to trust in God, rather than my own opinions and perceptions.

In that two weeks of radiation treatments, I focused on total acceptance and Love of my mother. I put everything I had into releasing the judgments and seeing with God’s Eyes.

I practiced being the one who went first with Love, and I prayed, and prayed, and prayed.

At the end of the visit, I was leaving to go back home to Los Angeles, my mother said she thought this was the nicest visit we ever had.

We spent 2 weeks of driving half the day back and forth to radiation treatments in the cold winter snow and mess, and it was the nicest visit we ever had. Why? Because I focused on eliminating the blocks to Love and just loved without attachment.

It brings tears to my eyes, still, because I still have a little bit of sadness for all of the opportunities to be loving that I missed.

But I don’t look back, except to continue to harvest the Wisdom and move forward with more Love, and more Love, and more Love.

We can all be the fulcrum point of healing in our family.
We can all rely upon the Spirit for our healing.
We can all practice nonjudgment.

It requires no longer giving Love and acceptance in order to get anything back. We must give without attachment.

No need for recognition or appreciation.
We give Love because it’s our Divine Opportunity to be our true self and be truly helpful.

It all gets so much easier to practice when we forgive ourselves for our debts and our trespasses.

I had to forgive myself for all the things I felt guilty about, so I was no longer feeling horrible about myself. Self-forgiveness is the only way.

And that’s why I offer my Forgiveness Letter tool.
Please get it and use it. It only works if you do it.

Click here to get my Family Forgiveness class – it’s my gift to you to support your family.

No matter how far gone things may seem in our relationships, Spirit knows the way back to Love, if we’re willing, and even if we’ve never been there.

If we’re willing, Spirit will show us the way.
