Deeper

Thursday, February 7th, 2019

I used to get upset so often and so easily. I had a very strong habit, almost an addiction, to taking offense. Being offended gave me a sense of power. And that’s how I learned that taking offense, criticizing, and complaining are ways that those who don’t feel powerful can try to get some kind of sense of power. Unfortunately, it backfires every single time, and just leaves us feeling weaker and more depleted. I feel like I wrote the book on that!

One of the most challenging things for me to grasp, and for many spiritual students, is that we’re not upset for the reason we think we are. (Lesson 5 of A Course in Miracles). For instance, if we’re upset because our loved ones aren’t behaving the way we think they should behave, we’ll always be incorrect.

We’ve been trained to blame our upset on others, but that doesn’t make it right. Blaming another for how we feel is the habit of someone who fears taking responsibility for their choices. And that’s a rough place to be. I know. I lived there for a long time. I don’t ever want to go back – even for a visit.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this quote: “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

If we’re willing to look beyond the surface of our distress, we can finally discover that we’re actually upset because, although we pretend to be committed to be unconditionally loving, we’ve given ourselves permission to judge our loved ones whenever we feel like it.

When we have the courage to look a little bit deeper, we’ll discover that those judgments we’re holding against our loved ones – our opinions of what they should and shouldn’t be doing – are, by nature, thoughts of attack, with a violent energetic.

There’s a huge gap between being unconditionally loving and giving ourselves permission to mentally attack whenever we feel like it. And, deep down, we know it. It’s blatant hypocrisy. And THAT is the actual cause of our upset.

Deep down, we’re upset because we’ve given ourselves permission to be unkind, unloving, and unjust. On a spiritual level, it’s a profound betrayal of Self. It’s also a form of terrorism. And we can pretend no one is noticing, but there’s only ONE MIND, so there’s no where to hide. And we know it.

What is the cure? Forgiveness. We forgive ourselves and become willing to replace the habit of judging with a commitment to compassion. Compassion is Love, and Love is the healer. When we heal the inner terrorist, we heal terrorism in the world, for All is One, all minds ARE joined. It’s so beautifully healing when we can be grateful we’re response-ABLE and exercise our ability to respond with Love. What a blessing!

So many people know that they need to “let it go,” but they don’t. They don’t let it go, in part, because they don’t know how. They don’t let it go, in part, because they don’t have the support to be willing. And that’s why I feel that my Masterful Living Course is so powerful and so important. Yes, important.

It’s important to be able to leave the past behind and live our true purpose. Forgiveness makes that possible.

The more this community grows, and strengthens and demonstrates the miracles that are possible for us – on all levels: mentally, emotionally, physically, in relationships and finances and more – the more grateful I am that I said yes to leading this community.

It is my pleasure and my honor to be a witness to the extraordinary healing that takes place in our community. And so, I’ve reopened Masterful Living registration for 1 week only and then it’s closed until 2020.

Prosperity & Forgiveness

Monday, February 4th, 2019

I see it happen all the time with people who are in class with me. They naturally start to be more prosperous. I feel it’s valuable to understand that Prosperity is so much more than just having a sense of greater financial Abundance. That’s a small part of what Prosperity is.

When we don’t understand what Prosperity really is, it’s no wonder we don’t understand how to activate it.

Prosperity is a spiritual quality that’s part of our true identity. It’s live-streaming all of the time and available for us to express.

Where Jesus said, “Seek ye first the Kingdom of Heaven, and all else will be added unto you,” the all else is the full awareness of the spiritual qualities such as Prosperity, Love, Joy, Freedom, Wisdom, Harmony, Abundance, Clarity, Beauty, Wholeness and more.

Prosperity IS Love.
Love IS Prosperity.

Prosperity is a sense of well-being that comes from feeling spiritually connected.
Prosperity is a good night’s sleep and a healthy digestive system.
Prosperity is knowing that you have plenty and so you don’t need to hoard.

What I was amazed to discover for myself is that when I truly dedicated myself to forgiving EVERYTHING, then I began to have this great sense of well-being. I began to feel that I would always have enough for what I needed. Peace came over me.

Prosperity IS Peace. Peace IS Love.

All of the qualities of God are available in our awareness when we are releasing the blocks to Love through an active practice of forgiveness.

On our own, we can get lazy. I see it all the time.

Many times, in Masterful Living, people resist doing the forgiveness letters. I get it.

Many are willing to work very hard to get the money to go on a trip to try to bring more healing in their life. People will put a lot of effort into intellectual pursuits to strengthen their spirituality, and only end up cluttering their mind and feeling confused.

Yet, doing the forgiveness that actually works is often something people put off to another day. That’s why in Masterful Living we help and inspire each other to do the work that actually brings the healing.

And that’s TRUE Prosperity.
It gets activated when we Love ourselves enough to do the forgiveness, and all of the practices of actually being loving. It works!

We’re in it together in my Masterful Living class – if you’d like that kind of support – come join us!

Stop Blocking Your Good

Saturday, January 26th, 2019

Are you willing to know how powerful your thoughts are? It takes courage. One way to begin is to simply start thinking: “I’d like …” and then fill in the blank. What’s important is to say “I’d like” at the start and NOT “I want” or “I need”. The simple “I’d like” is so powerful.

Then notice if you feel worthy.
And if you’re willing to receive it.
Let’s find out how willing you are.

Many people WANT things they aren’t willing to receive. I know it sounds a bit wack-a-doo, but it’s true. You know you’re blocking it, you do.

Consider, is there anything you’ve ever REALLY wanted, but you didn’t feel worthy of it, so you blocked it? I certainly have. In helping you to release the block to having it – write what it is in the comments section below and write “I’d like …” and then tell us what it is!

Our thoughts bring things into being. Our thoughts and beliefs create a kind of mold or container for Spirit to flow into and take shape. The more we think about something the more we believe in it. The more we emotionally and mentally invest in an idea, the more solidly it shows up in our lives.

If you’d like to create something beautiful in your life, focus on it and hold it in your heart and mind as already done, and watch it show up. Many folks have a difficult time with this, and end up energizing worry and doubt that it’s happening. Until it happens, until they can hold it, see it, touch it and feel it, it seems like it’s not happening. It’s like looking at a field that’s been planted before you can see the evidence of the plants growing. You can’t really tell if they’re germinating and healthy or not. You have to have faith.

When we have doubt and worry, it’s like poking holes in the mold or container that we’ve created for God to flow into. The more we entertain doubt and worry, the bigger the holes in our mental container. When we have lots of doubt and worry, then it’s as though the energy of Spirit flows right into our container and out the holes, and nothing is created. And yet, who is the one that’s poking holes in the container? We are. And then we blame God for not loving us enough to give us what we want and need. The doubt and worry are our own doing, but we blame it on Spirit.

Keep your focus on strengthening your container. Don’t let doubt enter. Don’t invite it in, and don’t pour it a cup of coffee. Sometimes people will tell us to be realistic and give up our desires, but that’s not being realistic. That’s giving up! Enough.

Be willing to receive your good until your cup runneth over.

Only you can keep your focus and strength of mind strong. Your willingness is ALL that’s required!

Guilt Is Sabotage

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

Some people use the threat of guilt as a motivator. Some use guilt to keep them playing small and avoid taking risks. Guilt itself is self-sabotage.

One of the debilitating side effects of self-sabotaging with self-medication is feeling guilty. We’ve talked about it a little this week in the 5 Day Challenge to End Self Sabotage.

I’ve talked with many folks who don’t fully enjoy their life because they feel it would be selfish and they’d feel guilty. Many people even feel guilty just for taking care of themselves – as though good self-care somehow is putting themselves first, which is bad and wrong.

The guilty mind punishes again and again. Self-punishment is a strong motivator for many people, and it keeps them in a loop, like a hamster on a wheel, repeating a limited and unhappy existence. It is our destiny to live a joyful life, and A Course in Miracles is the mind-training to help us get there!

It’s interesting how many people believe they *should feel guilty for taking care of themselves. One of the biggest challenges I see at work, in many people’s minds, is this belief that “it’s better to give than to receive”. How could that be true when there is only One? It’s insanity. The only place to give to is Spirit, and the only place to receive from is Spirit. How could giving be better than receiving? It’s so important, and valuable, and healing, and nourishing to be receptive to Spirit’s guidance and flow of Love. Without that, we wither and die, literally!

The ego thought system is in diabolically opposition to itself. The ego believes that taking care of yourself is selfish, which is bad and wrong. The ego believes that we’re supposed to give, and give, and give, and give in order to get the Love, approval, attention and affection that we want and need. We end up believing that we have to give, and give, and give in order to earn Love, thereby reinforcing the idea that we’re separate from Love.

The ego believes that others are selfish, bad and wrong if they don’t appreciate all that we’re giving to them. They should reciprocate by giving us everything that we need. It’s all lunacy. Time for a healing!

When we don’t take good care of ourselves, when we over-give and give in order to get something back, then we’re going to feel depleted, and it’s not because someone made us or we did it for someone else. Over-giving to depletion is a choice that is a form of self-sabotage, and it’s time for us to let it go! We over-give because we believe in lack. Over-giving is an affirmation of lack.

Spiritual students often believe that suffering and martyrdom are somehow holy. Suffering and martyrdom are the OPPOSITE of holy. Suffering and martyrdom are pure ego.

It’s our responsibility to take good care of ourselves, and keep our wellspring of energy, radiance and luminosity full. There are no extra points for running on empty. No one can do this for us – this is ours to do. If you feel guilty taking good care of yourself, consider this: If you live in service to the Light, then everything you do to make sure you are a brightly shining Light brings benefit to all. It’s not selfish to take good care of yourself, it’s another act of service to the Light!

What can you do today to care for yourself with excellence? Love is the healer and self-care is healing! The most healing thing I know is an effective spiritual practice, which always includes Self-Love!

Self-Medication is Resistance to Awakening

Wednesday, January 9th, 2019

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

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

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

One of the most CRUSHING and punishing ego thoughts I used to have is that I had “wasted” my time, my energy, my money or my life. I talk with a lot of spiritual students and this thought is SO common. We were just talking about it yesterday in the 5 Day Challenge to End Self Sabotage.

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

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

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

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

First comes your belief.

Your beliefs magnetize into your awareness thoughts that are congruent with that belief.

When you start thinking those thoughts that are congruent with your belief you’ll have a chance to really examine the belief and discover the pain and suffering it inevitably causes to believe it.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Willingness, not will power, is healing of all resistance!

Wasting Time

Tuesday, January 8th, 2019

One of the most CRUSHING and punishing ego thoughts I used to have is that I had “wasted” my time, my energy, my money or my life. I talk with a lot of spiritual students, and this thought is SO common. We were just talking about it yesterday in the 5 Day Challenge to End Self Sabotage.

In fact, a lot of us — once we begin to REALLY understand that it’s our stinking thinking that has caused all the problems we have, and that we’re not now, nor have we ever been, a victim — that’s when we can sometimes start to feel very judgmental of ourselves.

When we fall into self-judgment like that, it creates a spiraling down effect that is very painful. It often leads to self-medication, distraction and depression. For some, it can make them want to give up all together.

Now, check this out – one of the most distracting ego thoughts we have is that we don’t have enough time. Ego is always in limitation, of course, because ego is ONLY about separation from Source. EVERY ego thought is of limitation and separation. Lack and limitation is the only song the ego sings.

So, we find ourselves in this stinky sandwich. We’re stuck between two STRONG beliefs – on one hand, we’ve wasted our gifts and talents (just like the Prodigal Son) AND on the other hand, we don’t have enough time, energy, money, and resources.

Stuck between these two intense beliefs is where most spiritual students spin around for a VERY long time, feeling confused and discouraged, managing and coping with their feelings. I regularly talk with folks who’ve been in that spin cycle for 20 or more years.

And the crazy thing is, many of them are actually secretly convinced that it’s because there’s something wrong with them. They’re in this stuck place of intense confusion because they’re not good enough.

So then, what do they do? (… and BTW, I did it too, that’s how I know so much about it!)

They start looking for a magical solution rather than a miraculous one. Yup. Most of us go down that road.

What’s the difference between magic and miracle?

Magic is when you think the solution is in the world – Example: I’m thinking I can heal my financial issues with more money instead of opening to the flow of Abundance and Prosperity. When that’s my thinking, I’m convinced my problem is in the world, and so the solution is in the world. But haven’t we all experienced (again and again and again) getting more money only to have it slip through our fingers, because our consciousness isn’t abundant and prosperous? We all have our versions of it. It doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with us – it just means we’re still thinking with the ego mind set of lack and limitation.

I’ve seen folks who’d been studying ACIM and New Thought teachings for many years, but never REALLY applying the teachings – even after decades – and they don’t even know it.

I’ve known spiritual teachers, who have been teaching for years, who don’t believe what they teach and are still looking for a magical solution to their “problems.”

They don’t know that they’re deluding themselves, because their focus is on collecting more information. Collecting information makes them feel smarter and better. It’s like a big showy, glow-in-the-dark band-aid on their belief that they don’t have what it takes. But collecting information isn’t healing – it’s just a big distraction.

They “know” these teachings backwards and forwards and can “quote scripture” but there’s still a great sense of disconnect and lack. And, many times they can’t admit it because their ego is so identified with being the perfect spiritual student.

It’s kind of like this: you feel sick, overweight, tired and physically unfit, and so you’re reading lots of books, listening to CD’s, watching videos, and talking with lots of people about how to get in shape and restore your well-being and vitality. You study for years, but you just don’t feel any better. Hmmmm. Why isn’t it working? You know everything there is to know about so many different fitness programs, but your health hasn’t improved after decades of study. Get it?

Just like I did, these spiritual students keep their focus on trying to find some magical key, some kind of teaching that they can learn, some kind of code that breaks through the mystery – but the REAL key is hiding right there in front of them and they don’t even see it.

The keys to spiritual awakening are right there in front of us, but we’re looking beyond them for something with more razzle-dazzle. We can’t quite conceive of the healing that’s possible for us, no matter where we are in our journey. So instead, we’re looking for some kind of magical solution that someone is going to GIVE us, rather than SHOW us.

It really boils down to feeling worthy and willing.

And, quite frankly, having a real desire to know the Truth that sets us free is required. The desire is the fire that melts away the blocks to our miraculous healing and breakthrough.

With a little bit of sincere willingness, we can start to see what has been right in front of us all along – which is REALLY exciting – in fact, there’s nothing more exciting! It’s thrilling to discover that like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, we have had the key all along. And that’s what I Love SO MUCH.

I love being able to join with other spiritual students who have that little bit of willingness. Together we can stop looking for the solution in the world. The answer becomes within reach – the mystery starts to be less mysterious. And finally the healing truly begins to happen at the mind and we can see the ship in the harbor and we can sail it home!

It’s extraordinary, and even mind-blowing, how fast we can break down the blocks that we have clung to for many decades. Spirit doesn’t fail – it doesn’t know how to fail. When we know HOW to live a miraculous life, then our heart’s desire is not only possible, it’s within reach!

Addicted to Fantasy

Monday, January 7th, 2019

Today’s a big day! I’m launching my 5-Day Challenge to End My Self-Sabotage. There’s no charge to participate and we’re going to focus on self-medication. Please come join me.

One MAJOR form of self-sabotage that is also self-medication is spending a lot of time in fantasy – something I know a lot about. Not only was this an issue for me, it’s been an issue for many folks in my classes.

People don’t talk about it so much, so I thought I’d share about the differences between vision and fantasy. There’s a profound difference between vision and fantasy. I love A Course in Miracles teachings because they are so helpful. One thing they make clear is that the hero in the fantasy is always the body. If, in your fantasy of having a fabulous career, you envision yourself as a body, receiving praise, money, adoration, etc., then you can be sure that’s a fantasy.

In my experience, a vision of sharing my gifts and talents is more focused on how I feel, and not at all on what it LOOKS like. In the vision of my success, I feel in the flow of Love. I’m sharing. It’s not about me getting. I’m receiving Divine Guidance and Inspiration, and I’m flowing that out into the world through sharing.

Understanding the difference between vision and fantasy, is very valuable. One is a valuable tool and the other is a form of self-medication. Vision is a very different energetic than fantasy. Fantasy is a drug for the ego. Vision is a beautiful Divine Insight.

Fantasy leaves us in a hangover of lack. Vision lifts us up into communion with Spirit and a willingness to receive insight and Clarity. What do you prefer? Expansion or addiction? Fantasy is often an addiction.

If you feel like you’re addicted to fantasy, give it all to the Higher Holy Spirit Self and open your mind to what is truly possible – the very HIGHEST spiritual vision. When you align with that vision, only good came come to you! All things work together for your good.

You’ll be truly amazed at how much better a life of vision feels than making more time for fantasy. Give up fantasy and you’ll realize what a drain it’s been!

Will Power vs Willingness

Sunday, January 6th, 2019

I’m up in Maine and it’s snowing here – a gentle, sweet snow and I’m so grateful. I really love the changes of seasons, and in every season, there are usually some days that we wish it were different.

One day up here on Deer Isle, when I was living here in the early 90’s after I’d left New York, we had a cold snap and it was the coldest I’d ever experienced in my life. 20 degrees below zero. For you Celsius fans that’s about -29.

I was fortunate because, out here on Deer Isle, being an island surrounded by water, it’s much cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than it is on the mainland. It was probably twice as cold on the mainland.

I was going to a party that night, and I remember how searing the cold was. Of course, I heated the car for 20 minutes before I got into it, but it was still painfully cold. Just going to and from the car, the hairs in my nose froze and crackled. It hurt to have any skin exposed.

Most of the time, living here on the island is heaven. It’s gorgeous. The weather is beautiful most of the time. On a warmer winter night with snows and a full moon, it is a winter wonderland that takes your breath away.

Before living in Maine, I lived in Manhattan. I really love NYC, and most of the time it’s an exciting and interesting place to be. However, when the summer heat comes full on, up to 100 degrees – that would be about 37 Celsius – and the humidity is also upper 90’s, then it is positively unbearable. I cannot handle it. It feels like torture.

My BFF, Rev. Karen Russo lives in Phoenix. As God would have it, I’ve been to visit her in the month of August two years in a row. It’s hot as Hades then. And don’t give me that dry heat stuff, because in August it’s not that dry. Not at all.

I remember going outside for a walk early in the morning, when it’s the coolest, and as we started to walk I was feeling the air outside after being inside the air-conditioned house, I thought, “I wish somebody would open a window out here.” It was just plain stuffy, even outside!

Wherever you live, in most places there are days when it’s just too dang cold or hot, humid or wet or dry, sunny or dark or something. There will always be something.

In every single moment of life, there’s always something to complain about and something to be bothered by, if we let it.

It just depends on what we’re interested in.
That’s what determines our focus.
It’s never what’s happening “out there”.
It’s always about what’s happening inside.

Transformation is an inside job.

And that’s why, about 20 years ago, I made up my mind to be “unbotherable”. I’m not there yet, but that’s my goal. I get closer every day.

Even on the days that I’m bothered by things, I still feel I succeed because I take that upset and turn it over to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing. Healing is what I’m most interested in. I keep my FOCUS there.

I let the upset unwind with the Love and compassion of my own heart. I made these crazy thought forms. I gave them life, and it’s time for me to let them go. I intend to be free of ALL of them. I give the Holy Spirit the heavy lifting every day.

The keys to all of my inner healing, which have produced all the wonderful changes in my life, are these three:

  1. Love
  2. Self-forgiveness
  3. Willingness

Since it’s a brand new year, and it still has that lovely new year smell to it, I’m offering something I call my 5 Day Challenge to End Self-Sabotage starting tomorrow – it’s a gift to the community to inspire and support folks in keeping a healthy, happy new year momentum going.

And one of the things we’ll be talking about is WILL POWER vs WILLINGNESS. It has been SO helpful to me to understand the difference, and then apply that wisdom to my life.

When someone has a problem with obsessive-compulsive behavior or avoidance, they’ll often try willpower to make a change. A perfect example of that is trying to get in shape or lose weight at the beginning of the year.

People make New Year’s resolutions about what they’d like to change in their eating, drinking, exercising, home cleanliness and organization, and all kinds of things.

Resolutions require willpower.
Willpower is part of a plan of behavior modification.

Behavior modification is a helpful start when we’re feeling out of control, obsessive, compulsive and addicted.

For the moment, we can pause the addictive behaviors with willpower.
But we all know that stopping the behavior isn’t a healing.
As A Course in Miracles teaches us, all healing is at the level of the mind – NOT at the level of behavior.

We seek not to change the behavior, but to change our mind about ourselves, life, our bodies, and eliminate the ROOT CAUSE of the behavior – which is our beliefs.

Many people obsessively self-medicate as a way to escape how they feel. I’ve certainly done WAY more than my fair share of that. Willpower does NOTHING to eliminate that issue – it only intensifies it.

It’s like turning up the heat on a pressure cooker.
Eventually, it will explode.
And then there’s an even bigger mess to contend with.

A Course in Miracles tells us:
“You must change your mind, not your behavior, and this is a matter of willingness. You do not need guidance except at the mind level. Correction belongs only at the level where change is possible. Change does not mean anything at the symptom level, where it cannot work.” T-2.VI.3.

Willingness is the only way to make real progress on the spiritual path of awakening.

Our willingness is ALL that’s required to have true and lasting transformation.
It seems so simple, and quite frankly, too easy, but neither is accurate.

Have you ever had a moment where you felt driven to act compulsively and you knew it would not end well, and that if you could have any small fraction of willingness you could take a deep breath and make a higher choice, but you just didn’t want to – in that moment?

Instead you willFULLY, self-destructed?

Practicing those moments of willingness IS where our healing’s at.
Willpower simply won’t do.

When we’re craving, needing, and wanting to satisfy that compulsion, we’re feeling deprived. We’re feeling like a victim that needs, and wants, and craves, because we don’t have — we lack.

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

How could willpower ever heal that?
How could willpower ever even satiate the craving for Unity for one second?
It cannot.

But even a little bit of willingness is instantaneous joining with Spirit.

“The power to work miracles belongs to you. I will provide the opportunities to do them, but you must be ready and willing.” T-1.III.1.

Using will power actually makes things worse.
We feel self-betrayed, on some level, when we’re trying to control and manipulate the cravings and behavior. It just feels hellish.

Okay, maybe there are moments of ego superiority and satisfaction when we’re able to use willpower to not follow the needing, wanting, and craving impulses. But those will power moments just fuel the fire of living without lasting healing. Always a victim.

A Course in Miracles tells us:
“We have already attempted to correct the fundamental error that fear can be mastered, and have emphasized that the only real mastery is through love.… You may think this implies that an enormous amount of time is necessary between readiness and mastery, but let me remind you that time and space are under my control.” T-2.VII.7.

Our willingness IS all that’s needed for our healing. Let us practice that this entire year and see what wonderful and miraculous healing we have!

Snarky

Saturday, December 29th, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Right and Wrong

Wednesday, December 19th, 2018

Can you feel it? The Christ Light is pouring into this world, and it’s such a time for healing. It may not feel that way to you. It may feel unpleasant and difficult. If so, know that the challenges are to support you in choosing Love and Light. When times are tough, it’s a time for great healing, and we can maximize it by invoking Divine Grace and Goodness.

Many of these patterns that are coming up for healing have to do with right and wrong.

There’s a pervasive thought pattern in our world that is about deciding who is right and who is wrong, who are the winners and who are the losers. (And don’t we love to gather the evidence?) Judgment is a weapon. At times it can feel like a very effective weapon—or so I used to think. Now I know that if I walk around brandishing a weapon, I’m looking for a fight and I’ll find one. I’m not interested in fighting anymore.

I really don’t need to fight for Freedom.

If I’m willing to live the truth then I know it: I am already free.

Knowing that I am free, I can take flight on the wings of Love.

We raise our children in this culture of judgment. We teach the ways of judging to them when they’re little bitty babies: Throwing the food on the floor is WRONG. They hear us talk to the dog: “BAD doggie, BAD.” We show them how to make the right decisions, to look at the other people who are doing it wrong and say, “Bad people, BAD!” We do this so they won’t get hurt by taking up with the bad people. Right?

It used to be when I argued with someone, I approached it like a battle. I used every verbal weapon I had to make them wrong. I needed to be right! Being right made me a better person. (All the winners agreed on that.) Every day I needed proof that I was a better person. It was exhausting.

When I decided to follow Gandhi and King, I put down my weapons of judgment. I’ve come to a place where I can have a disagreement with someone and I can watch carefully any desire I have to be right. Instead of following that desire, I can agree to disagree.

In fact, I don’t even have to get angry! This has been a huge relief. It may not make me a better person, but it feels better, because I don’t have battles any more. Putting down my weapons has made every day victory day. Who won? Everyone.

Today I focus on how I use words and moods as weapons, and I voluntarily disarm myself. I’ve decided to live in a world without battles and wars. I cultivate a life without weapons. My daily personal practice of nonviolence moves my life and the whole world in a direction of Peace.

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. Please join me in this free 3-part series on forgiveness and be ready to bring forth miraculous healing, clearing and expansion. Let’s ROCK OUT this year and prepare for 2019!

Freedom from Pain

Tuesday, December 18th, 2018

There are different types of pain: physical, emotional, and mental, to name the most obvious.

I’ve had had excruciating physical torment, but emotional pain seemed worse to me. And, I’ve had my share of mental pain that came from obsessive compulsive thinking that was torturous.

What sometimes happens when we’re in pain is that, we can become desperate to end it, and start looking for all kinds of solutions in the world. Here’s where A Course in Miracles can really help us, because it reminds us that pain actually comes from having a wrong perspective. Solutions in the world of form aren’t going to change our perspective.

As I’ve said before: If you try to solve a problem without Love, you’ll still have a problem.

Problems them selves are a wrong perspective. Partnering UP with the Higher Holy Spirit Self is the way out of that challenge.

However, sometimes when we’re in pain we just become overwhelmed and implode. It’s challenging to realize that there are options for healing and upliftment when we’re overwhelmed.

Overwhelm comes from believing that we have to handle things on our own. When we forget that there’s an invisible field of pure loving support, then we’re going to become confused by our own viewpoint on things.

When confusion enters my mind, I think of the quote from Proverbs 3 in the Holy Bible:
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

We become attached and enamored of the meaning we’ve made of things, and then we can’t let it go, even though it causes us pain. The way out of this difficulty is to hand it over to Spirit for sorting and healing.

The way out of all difficulty is to trust the Lord with all our heart, and to take a big step back from our own interpretations and simply look for the opportunities to be loving, kind, patient and forgiving.

There’s a freedom in having this simple practice be part of our daily spiritual practice. What once was very difficult will become quite manageable.

Self-forgiveness dissolves self-inflicted pain. It doesn’t matter what kind of pain people are suffering from, I’ve seen it has been dissolved through the practice of forgiveness. How about that for a motivator! There’s so much healing that we’ve witnessed. We can take dominion over the mind, claim our Freedom and move on. That’s what forgiveness allows us to experience.

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.

Actively Healing

Monday, December 17th, 2018

During stressful times and holiday times, old patterns come up for healing – and don’t we know it!! These triggers are a benefit to us, because we’re actively interested in our healing. Right?

This past week in Masterful Living we were talking about the ways in which we reject the answered prayer, because we’re not prepared to receive it.

What I’ve recognized is, that if I pray to be more willing, and I partner UP with the Higher Holy Spirit Self, then I can be instantly made more receptive.

All through the holidays, we get to choose Heaven or hell with each choice we make. If you find the holidays difficult, if you struggle with old family patterns, if you’re feeling you’d like to really have a breakthrough, then you might find my Forgive & Be Free class helpful. It’s my gift to you.

When there are healing opportunities available to us and we don’t choose them — instead, repeating the past, we begin to feel discouraged and downtrodden, but we may not know why.

When our Spirit is working so intently to support us in having the breakthroughs we desire, and we choose to ignore them or let them pass us by, it eats away at our self-esteem.

Even if we don’t even consciously have awareness that we’re sabotaging ourselves, deep down we can sense it. We can hide from the truth, but it’s still there.

Healing isn’t intellectual.
Healing is through our inner communion with Spirit AND our conscious willingness to let the patterns go, even if we don’t fully understand them.

Extending Love is healing.
Reading books is not.

Not that reading books is bad – not at all – but it’s not enough.

A Course in Miracles is crystal clear about how we bring on our healing breakthrough to live a happy and harmonious life. Still, many people study ACIM and other spiritual teachings without actually applying the teachings, and so they don’t receive the healing benefits.
Information isn’t healing. Spiritual practice is healing.

Let’s all make the most of the holiday healing that is available to us! Enough with hell! Let’s choose Heaven today!

The more I share about forgiveness, the more I remember the truth.
The more I remember the truth, the more I see how alike we are, and how encouraging it is to live life in a way that is spiritually productive and liberating.

My Christmas Miracle!

Sunday, December 16th, 2018

We are so much alike, you and I. This is what I am learning ever more clearly each moment of each day. It’s because we are one and the same. Although the details at the surface look different, and even feel different, underneath there is this great sameness.

Life is such a strange and interesting thing.

Last night, I went to see the play Apologia on Broadway. The story is of a mother, played by Stockard Channing (whom I LOVE as the First Lady in West Wing), and her two grown sons. It’s a story of a catharsis in their dysfunctional family.

Watching this painful drama unfold, and observing the emotional flailing of their personalities, as well as the Love that they have for each other and the confusion of it all, I had the thought, “Life is so hard.” Being dysfunctional is so painful.

Yesterday, in my Forgive & Be Free live video workshop, I was sharing that I never imagined that forgiveness could bring me the life-changing results that it has. I truly would not have known it was possible, had I not proved it to myself.

I’m so glad I didn’t delay the miracles any longer!

The more functional I am, the more Joy I feel in life.
Forgiveness is the one thing that has brought me to that place.
Forgiveness is the one thing that opens my heart to really sharing Love.
Yesterday, after the workshop, I got caught up in prep for today’s follow up, and I completely forgot that I had a small window of time to get to the train station to go to NYC. I was taking my BFF, Chere, to the theatre for her birthday and, as it was, we’d not have time to meet for even a coffee before.

Suddenly, I realized, “OH NO! I have to get to the train!” I grabbed my coat and jumped in the car.

If you remember last Sunday’s “Shot of Spiritual Espresso”, you might recall that I took my niece, Olivia, to the theatre last weekend for her birthday. We took the bus, and were 30 minutes late to the theatre because the traffic was so horrendous. I didn’t wish to experience that again, so I was taking the train this time.

Only, I missed it. While I was walking from the car to the platform, the train came and went. I missed it by 60 seconds. I went back to my car, said a prayer and started driving.

Normally, at that time on a Saturday, it might take 45 minutes to get in to the city. It took about 1:10. But then, once I got into the city, it took about 30 minutes to go 10 blocks.

I knew I’d probably have to pay for parking. The chances of finding a great parking space in the Theatre District at showtime on a Saturday night, at Christmas, is about as good as winning the lottery.

As I drove across 46th street, I knew there would be many parking garages. I saw one that charged $6.50 per 30 minutes (plus tax of course) and I knew to keep going to find one closer to my destination, as Chere was standing in the lobby waiting for me. Across from the theatre, there was one for $10.50 per 30 minutes. If we went for a bite after theatre, the tab would be in the neighborhood of $80 for parking. Well, so be it. I’d rather be peaceful than bothered by money.

My intuition said to drive one more block.
I thought it was because the parking might be in the $6 range if I went a bit further.
It wasn’t. So, I started to turn into the parking garage there that was also $10.50, when I saw, right there, opposite the parking garage, a completely free legal spot with more than enough room for my car. Sweet!

It’s a Christmas miracle! My own non-judgment is the miracle – not the saved $80

Now, I did call to the angels ahead of time as I was driving to NYC and I said, “If it’s the highest and best, please find me a spot on the street that’s good and safe.” No attachment.

For me, the constant keys to living a joyful life are:

No attachment.
No judgment. (Which would be an attachment.)
Surrender, trust, extend kindness, patience, generosity and compassion.
Be receptive.

I didn’t think that I couldn’t find a spot. I was open-minded about it.
I didn’t know what anything was for, but I was definitely being guided to drive to the city and park, so I went with it. It wasn’t my plan, but that didn’t matter.

My goal is to be truly helpful and to be “Joy-full” all along the way.

I must point out that I didn’t have a single thought that I’d done something wrong.

Nothing was wrong when I completely forgot about my evening plans when I was wrapping up after the workshop.
Nothing was wrong when I missed the train.
Nothing was wrong when I was sitting in that bumper-to-bumper traffic for an hour and 15 minutes.

Everything is perfectly perfect and, so are we.
We can have Christ Miracles every day.
All day long – it’s how we’re meant to live.
It’s how we’re designed to live our lives.

The more I share about forgiveness, the more I remember the truth.
The more I remember the truth, the more I see how alike we are, and how encouraging it is to live life in a way that is spiritually productive and liberating.

Spiritual Success & Celebration

Saturday, December 15th, 2018

My mother used to quote St. Augustine, who said “The reward of patience is patience.” Ain’t that the truth. Patience is its own reward. It’s worth celebrating.

Life can be intensely challenging. It can be easy to get upset, and to spew that upset everywhere we go. It often seems as though that is the way of the world. And yet, there is a profound spiritual victory when we can exercise our ability to choose Love instead. What a great habit for our new year!

When we choose Love it’s worth celebrating. I used to be quite impatient. I made up my mind to replace that weakness in myself by aspiring to be consistently kind, patient, generous of heart and fundamentally “unbotherable”.

To encourage myself, I began to celebrate my victories. I learned the value of a happy dance of victory. I learned to praise and congratulate myself for my successes.

The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate. ~ Oprah Winfrey

Challenges aren’t as intense when we know it leads to our victory. I learned through my experiences that life’s difficulties have come to help me by challenging me to give up hurtful habits.

It may not get easier as fast as we’d like, but by taking life’s challenges as an opportunity to affirm our spiritual sovereignty and be “unbotherable” there will be many victories, and most certainly daily victories.

Celebrate your victories and the victories of those around you! Really celebrate when you make the higher, more loving choice and cultivate your own magnificent happy dance!

Find your happy song, and make it your victory song! Be victorious every day!

Each time we see opportunities to be annoyed, frustrated, irritated, angry, sad, depressed, and hurt, and instead we choose self-compassion, it’s a victory.

When we celebrate our victories, we are affirming that we have the ability to make a different choice. This is self-empowerment.

Today my Spirit is victorious! I am choosing Love and letting my Light shine!

We don’t have to let pain be our motivator anymore!
Let’s be willing together!

Would you like a spiritual mentor who walks right beside you? Are you SO ready to have a new experience in the new year? We’re doing the deep work, and the healing is revealing itself in our lives!

Eliminating Fear

Friday, December 14th, 2018

Fear can be like a termite infestation. If termites were eating your house, how long would you let it go before you did something different?

Getting rid of fear is easier than you think! It does require your focused attention. If you’re living in fear, then give yourself a break – stop working in the world of form in order to manage, control, and manipulate your circumstances and situations, your relationships, and finances into being a certain way in order to eliminate fear. That does not work. It’s the slow-drip method, and it’s no longer a viable option for us. Be willing to work in the invisible – in your thoughts.

When we work in the invisible field of mind, instead of pushing density in the world of form, life gets a whole lot easier. I know, for myself and many people, the habit of pushing density is so ingrained, we don’t even realize that we’re designed to live a miraculous life. We just keep pushing and pushing. It’s exhausting.

Sometimes I feel that part of why so many people are on anti-depressants is because they’re Light Workers who are still pushing density, still thinking that they’re deprived of the life they are designed for, not realizing no one is depriving them but themselves. I can relate to that, because I’d feel a great despair, I felt deprived, and loads of self-judgment. I felt like a spiritual failure.

Let’s eliminate the root causes of fear.

Here’s a basic tip: Judging, complaining, and criticizing always produces fear. Always. If you’re sincere about wishing to live a life where you’re not motivated by fear anymore, then give up judging, complaining and criticizing. If that feels too hard to do, then you are not willing.

If you’re not willing, then your faith is in your own judgment. How much longer will you suffer before you have enough motivation to be willing to focus your attention on replacing the judging, complaining, and criticizing with loving, praising, allowing and appreciating? If you’re not sure, then decide. Give yourself a deadline. Don’t let the termites just eat your house.

We don’t have to let pain be our motivator anymore!
Let’s be willing together!

Vision

Thursday, December 13th, 2018

One time, in my yearlong Masterful Living Course, we were having a very powerful dialogue about healing the feeling of aversions in our relationships. I feel so blessed and grateful for the deep sharing we have together, and the ever-increasing willingness for us to have healing. We’re all learning to ALLOW the healing at the deepest levels.

It takes tremendous willingness to recognize the healing opportunity that is before us when we feel frustrated, irritated, distrustful, worried, confused, angry, jealous, guilty, ashamed or upset in any way. That’s right. Any form the upset takes is an indicator that a miraculous healing opportunity is being presented to us, if we have the courage to rely upon Spirit to guide us through.

I’ve experienced paralyzing fear turned into miraculously deepening faith and trust because of my willingness. In this way, anyone’s willingness brings everyone benefit – all boats rise on this tide of Love. In this way, we can be heroic.

This is the time we’ve waited for, and it’s the personal healing activation that we are hear to anchor and bring forth for all beings.

Our willingness to be a loving presence is an active practice of faith and trust. Our willingness naturally displays a belief in Spirit, that our healing is possible – and that shift in consciousness allows the miraculous vision to come forth.

If we had no belief, no trust at all, we wouldn’t be able to have much healing. Miracles would only be for special people. Miracles are, in a sense, “contagious.” Our trust, faith and belief are healing activators that can restore the miraculous mindset to anyone’s life.

And that’s what we are, healing activators. If we’re willing, Spirit will do the heavy lifting, show us the way, remove the obstacles, lift and carry us. In this way, we are the living demonstration of Faith, Belief & Vision all while we’re learning how to have these precious qualities of God.

Trust and willingness are really one in the same. In A Course in Miracles we’re told that trust is the #1 characteristic of the teachers of God, upon which everything else rests. We’re also told that our willingness is all that is required. You cannot have willingness without trust, and you can’t have trust without willingness. Together they call the healing into miraculous expression.

Vision arises out of trust and willingness Trust and willingness go together, and they dissolve the appearance of obstacles so we can see with Divine Vision.

Our willingness to hold a higher vision of Unity and Love is like a lightening rod for God’s goodness to flow into our life. At times it may seem as though we’re being tested in our ability to have faith and believe in the vision of Love for our lives. While it seems like testing, it’s really strengthening exercises, perfectly design to support us.

When we’re willing to have a high aspiration, to cultivate willingness and practice patience, kindness, generosity and compassion, we are a healing presence in this world.

Because our mind is the Mind of God, when we change our mind about the world, the world changes and becomes a more peaceful place. Let’s learn to rejoice that we can change our mind.

When there seems to be a difficulty or an impasse in our relationships, let’s gratefully go first and move into forgiveness, non-judgment, and a great willingness with trust in Spirit. Let’s live as healing activators for the whole human race and the Earth! Let’s start today!

We work in the invisible.
We stop pushing density by trying to make things happen in form.
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!

Come jump start the forgiveness with me this weekend!

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!

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!

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!

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. Please join me NEXT weekend in this free 3-part series on forgiveness, and be ready to bring forth miraculous healing, clearing and expansion. Let’s ROCK OUT this year and prepare for 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.

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.

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!

In my Masterful Living Course 2019 I share what I learned that shifted me out of being a complainer. It’s s such a relief! Registration for Masterful Living open NOW with an early-bird price to inspire you to commit now and not get distracted.

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!
