Relief

Sunday, August 19th, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Breakthrough

Saturday, August 18th, 2018

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

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

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

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

Can you relate?

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

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

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

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

Live Your Calling

Wednesday, August 15th, 2018

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

Do you have a calling for a spiritual career or a deeper path of study?

I meet so many spiritual students who are like me. (Like attracts like!)

I have such a passion for service, to be truly helpful and be a beneficial presence on this planet.

I absolutely LOVE helping people to find their calling, unlock their gifts, walk the talk and fully live the Love.

For NINE YEARS I studied to be a Science of Mind Practitioner and then a Minister in the Agape community in Los Angeles.

It was a lot of work, and yet I still didn’t feel worthy of what I aspired to! Can you imagine?

I used to wonder how I’d ever be able to make a living following my calling. I had so much doubt about my abilities to figure it all out and that was a great burden to me. I didn’t have 1 clue how to really, truly lay that burden down and just get ON with what I had such a passion for – spiritual healing.

The road to just being able to pay my bills and make ends meet felt very rough and challenging.

There were times when I had decide whether to pay my phone bill, put gas in my car or buy groceries. That was rough.

I wondered how could I ever be a successful spiritual counselor, teacher, and minister when I was struggling financially.

AND I was also struggling just to be truly loving. I had such a desire to live my passion, and it worried me that I might not have what it takes. I was concerned that I was going to have to keep settling and making choices to do things I really didn’t want to do, just to survive.

Plus, I could talk the talk, but in trying to walk the walk I fell down many times a day – sometimes I fell HARD.

I was ashamed. I felt like a fake and a fraud a lot of the time.

And let’s face it – it’s really hard to “sell” yourself, when you feel like a fraud. Lordy!

Maybe you’ve been a spiritual student for a while, maybe you’re a teacher, minister, therapist, healer, counselor, social worker or coach.

I can see now that the great mistake I was making was I was “up in my head” about how to actually make a living in a spiritual profession. I had a desire to be a teacher, minister and a counselor, but I didn’t feel worthy. And that just made it so much harder.

I was very aware of how much I didn’t know. I felt like I was pushing a boulder up a hill just to get started.

That didn’t stop me from giving A LOT of advice – LOL!

To a certain degree, I was a spiritual know-it-all, giving advice to everyone whether they asked for it or not, but not really stepping out into living my dream because I felt like a fraud.

It confused me at the time, but I can see now that I was pushing people away with my advice. And of course, I felt a deepening sense of shame that I could give advice I wasn’t willing to apply myself.

For many years I was focused on collecting more information – I read books and took classes and seminars to learn more about Spirit. Collecting information felt like it made me a better person – and I needed that to boost my Self-esteem – but of course, it didn’t work because information isn’t healing or uplifting – only Love is.

I was looking for the key. I was hoping someone would give me a clue. The more I looked for the key, the further away it seemed to feel.

I wanted to crack the code so that I could go from studying about Spirit to finally being able to be a truly beneficial presence and live my calling.

Maybe you’ve taken a lot of classes, trainings and seminars, but still feel like you’re missing some essential piece that will bring your breakthrough.

I don’t mind telling you that I kept thinking that I had to learn more in order to be able to live my calling, but it wasn’t true in the intellectual sense. I didn’t need more information. I needed someone to help me understand how to commit to doing the practical application. I needed help learning to really LIVE what I thought I knew.

You know what?

My spiritual practice is the thing that brought my breakthrough and transformed this ministry from miniscule to thriving and expanding.

Trust me, there was no amount of information that I could have learned that would have brought me to the place of knowing, clarity, Peace, and Wholeness that I feel ever-increasing in my life.

There’s no piece of marketing strategy or esoteric spiritual information that could have brought me to where I am now. I now know that spiritual practice is the only thing that works.

Spiritual practice made it possible for me to have something truly worth sharing.

I began to experience miracles!

Do you feel that you have a calling to a spiritual profession?

Have you already studied for years as a minister, therapist, teacher, healer or coach and still feel that you’re not REALLY qualified to help others? I used to have so much fear that I’d never be able to live my calling and that I’d forever be floundering in a fog of confusion. Success felt SO elusive to me.

Are you just not able to make a real living doing what you Love – and does that frighten you like it frightened me? Do you feel that there’s some kind of block you can’t seem to get through? Do you feel like you just can’t figure out how to make your passion your “real” job? Do you secretly judge your clients?

I used to judge everyone, even as I was wishing to be of service to them. How crazy is that? I have talked with so many other ministers, counselors and therapists that feel like I used to feel. They’re judging their clients, complaining about their students, criticizing the very people they are supposed to be supporting – and they feel guilty and ashamed for it – but they keep doing it.

They’re in a loop of feeling bad about themselves and then projecting it onto the people in their lives. I was in that place for a long, LONG time and it was very painful for me.

Do you have a deep yearning to be of service and to have a thriving spiritual career?

If you’re truly willing to do the healing and clearing work, I absolutely KNOW that you can be a success. I’ve seen it with the folks in my classes and it’s beautiful to witness!

I used to feel so confused and blocked – and I sure don’t feel like that anymore.

What I absolutely know is that the time is NOW for the light workers of the world to activate and to share their gifts and talents and be beneficial presence in this world.

It’s time for those of us who have been resistant and reluctant to follow our hearts and answer our calling!

You can do the work that you LOVE. Spirit will support you to find the path of your success. Spirit does not fail and neither will you. Stay tuned and I’ll share with you what worked for me.

What I know is that you WILL be guided and supported! Your willingness is ALL that’s required!

This blog is Part 1 of a 3 part series. Stay tuned for part 2 tomorrow.

If you’re tired of playing small, and you’re interested in having a breakthrough in living your calling, helping more people and opening up the flow of prosperity, stay tuned to my blog tomorrow!

Fantasy

Monday, August 13th, 2018

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!

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

Letting Go of Hurtful Habits

Sunday, August 12th, 2018

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

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

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

That was me: deep yearning, strong resistance.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Love is our healer.
I AM choosing Love.

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

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

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

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

Pain

Saturday, August 11th, 2018

I’m at a Sat Nam Fest, which is a kundalini yoga festival. I’m here to learn and grow, to practice yoga and meditation, to be with friends and make new ones. I like to try new things. I’ve been doing kundalini yoga on and off for nearly 25 years. I really love it because it is a spiritual practice that combines exercises and that suits me so perfectly.

I took a class the other day with a very well-known teacher who began by saying that we all have pain in our lives. As a longtime yoga student, I know that pain can be a regular thing as I deepen in my practice.

As an A Course in Miracles student, I know that “pain is a wrong perspective,” as it says in lesson 190 which is “I choose the joy of God instead of pain.”

The teacher said that we all have pain in our lives, but it doesn’t have to be ongoing and constant, but many people believe that it is and will be, and I felt that was what he was saying. And yoga can help us to work at the level of the mind and also to feel better despite the pain.

I’m for a pain-free life, a life of learning through joy.

I experience a minor amount of physical pain, and rarely experience emotional or mental pain anymore – but they used to be pretty steady. This is what compels me to share what I’m discovering and learning about what’s possible for us.

I believe we can all be shining examples of joyful learners!

If you absolutely knew that Spirit could transform your perspective your pain and suffering to Peace and Prosperity, but it would take two to five years, depending upon your willingness, would you delay? What would you start to do differently?

When I had so much pain in my life, one of my constant thoughts was, that I had SO FAR TO GO. I wish I had known then, that I didn’t have ANYWHERE as far to go as I thought I did. I did the biggest part of my transformation in two years. TWO YEARS!! This is why my programs are in depth, and Masterful Living is a full year, with the ability to continue on for many years. So, we don’t give up and keep going!

Had I been able to comprehend how much faster I could reach a place of mostly Peace and happiness, I would have stopped delaying and gotten on with it decades sooner. I just didn’t know.

This is really a big part of why I write this daily shot of Spiritual Espresso each day, and why I record a new prayer each day, because we can get there so much faster than we think. Knowing this helps us get to the place of Peace faster!

ACIM also says that our willingness is all that’s required. What helped me to really increase my willingness was to start saying these affirmations:

I am willing to be all-in for Love.
I am doing it now.
God is working through me now.
Healing is happening now.
I accept and allow my healing with my whole heart.
Thank you Spirit for my healing!

I encourage you to work with these and to find your own! In the comments section below, please share any powerful affirmations that you’ve found that support your awakening to Love!

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

Please join with a friend and let’s get our healing ON!

God Isn’t A Racist

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

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

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

The very idea that God could be racist is laughable.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The truth isn’t that someone is right and someone else is wrong, the truth is that we are one and inseparable. All joined in Love, this is the truth. The truth IS being revealed.

True Sight

Monday, August 6th, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Healing At the Root Cause

Sunday, August 5th, 2018

The other day I was being interviewed and was asked about what I meant by Stop Playing Small, which is something that I share about in classes and retreats, because it’s so prevalent and so painful. I meet many spiritual students, and particularly, ministers, teachers and healing professionals who are playing small and they feel the pain and restriction of it.

Just like me, there are so many wonderful and talented people who are playing small and they think it’s because they haven’t figured out how to make things happen and come together in the world. Here’s what I learned: we think that when we get things right in the world of form, then our growth and expansion will happen.

This world just doesn’t work that way.

As A Course in Miracles says, “all thought produces form at some level.”

What is form? Form is:

Our beliefs,
thoughts,
circumstances,
situations,
and, very importantly, our emotions.

What does “at some level” mean? The levels are:

Mental
Emotional
Physical
as well as ETHERIC – which is causation, which is belief

When we allow the Higher Holy Spirit Self to remove from our awareness the beliefs that are the CAUSE of our playing small, feeling angry, broke, sick, and tired while also simultaneously focusing on BEING LOVING, then we have a miraculous healing. Sometimes it’s easy to let a belief go, and sometimes we really cling to it.

Why would we cling to a false belief?

Well, if we’ve become identified with being a victim, a martyr, an addict, a failure or some other false identification, then it’s a really full-on life change. I know, because I used to have a very, very strong false identification of:

Something’s really, REALLY wrong with me – I’m bad – I’m evil – I’m irreparably damaged and a disgrace.

I found that the way to heal it was to give it to the Higher Holy Spirit Self. That’s what it says in ACIM. A Course in Miracles actually tells us very clearly that we cannot do it, so don’t even try. That works for me!

This method is what I call Catch, Release, Replace.

Catch your untrue thoughts
Release them to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing
Replace them with loving thoughts

How do we catch our untrue thoughts?

When we feel disturbed – there must be an untrue thought – that’s WHY we feel disturbed.

The slightest irritation is evidence of an untrue thought.

We don’t have to analyze or even identify what it is.

We can say to the Higher Holy Spirit Self “what ever is the cause of this minor irritation, this seething anger, this sadness, this hurt, this shame, please take it out of my mind so I never think it again. I’m not interested in believing this anymore. I’m not subject to these false beliefs anymore – known or unknown, recognized or unrecognized, felt or not felt – I’m done with all of it. I choose to be loving, kind, generous, helpful and free.”

I had to do this, some days, more than 100 times a day. It wasn’t easy, but it sure was worth it!

I demonstrated my TRUE willingness to leave the past that I had made, the meaning I’d made, the interpretations that were false and a splinter in my mind, and to give it to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing.

I had to attune to that one voice, and leave the “voice” of the ego behind.

What I learned from my own experience was that I hadn’t consciously realized I was inflicting the “playing small” on myself. I thought I was playing small because CIRCUMSTANCES weren’t supporting me in my growth and expansion.

As I began to practice giving to the Higher Holy Spirit Self what didn’t serve me, then my circumstances began to change. I started thinking differently. The old patterns left me. I started making new healing choices.

We share one mind. As I began to teach only Love, then my ministry began to take shape and form. People began to be interested in what I was sharing because “as I am lifted up, I draw all unto me.”

I was completely convinced that the reason I was being held back was because things in the world weren’t organizing themselves for my expansion. SO NOT TRUE!

This is so important:
I knew I wasn’t REALLY walking my talk and because of that, deep down, I was playing small so I didn’t have a greater sphere of influence.

I didn’t wish to teach that not walking your talk is the way to do it.

As long as I wasn’t really walking my talk – I was a living demonstration of talking, but not knowing, not really understanding, and deep down, I didn’t wish to demonstrate that, so I held my self back with excuses.

My life has completely changed since then.
I’m so inspired to support others in breaking through their perceived limitations and truly answering their call of inspiration!

Negative Vows

Wednesday, August 1st, 2018

In class yesterday we were talking about negative vows that we made in this life or a past life that we don’t even recall. Sometimes these ancient vows are still running in the background.

Example: someone who, perhaps, in a previous incarnation had taken a vow of poverty or chastity and it’s still operating in their life, unbeknownst to them!

I know that I was a Catholic ecclesiastic in many lifetimes. And many times had taken those vows that I now realize were ego vows of negativity because of the way I held them in my mind. I saw that they were still operating in my life and I prayed to release myself from all negative vows.

These negative vows can take many expressions and be like a software running in the background and taking up a lot of bandwidth that we don’t even have a conscious awareness of.

Sometimes our Higher Holy Spirit Self is trying to get our attention on these false beliefs and to address them – and we just don’t want to look at it, so we choose managing and coping instead.

I see this with many light workers, like myself. I used to have so many prosperity issues for decades and I finally healed them through active self-forgiveness.

Many have taken on the labeling and declarations of others such as:

You’re stupid, you’re an idiot, you’ll never amount to anything, you’re pathetic and more. We can take on these labels, and sometimes it’s almost like someone has cast a spell on us because we agree.

People tell me stories like this on a regular basis – “that runs in my family,” or “it’s all part of getting older.”

Someone asked me how I’d avoided having any significant illness and I said “I just don’t wish to agree to it.”

There’s so much that we take on that’s optional.
We don’t have to figure out how to release it.
We give it to the Higher Holy Spirit Self and let Spirit do it.
Spirit knows the way.
Our willingness to give it away is the only thing that’s required!
Let’s go for it!

Write a note in the comments below – what vows or labels are you giving to the Spirit for healing?

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!

Being Lifted Up

Sunday, July 29th, 2018

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

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

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

This is Freedom.

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

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

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

Full of Light? Me? Nah.

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

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

Who? Me? What?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Elders

Saturday, July 28th, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Courage to Follow My Passion

Thursday, July 19th, 2018

I am forever grateful that I’ve followed my intuition. Many times along this path of teaching and ministry I’ve been prompted by Spirit to do things I didn’t feel like doing. My personality didn’t want to teach a year-long course. It felt like too big a commitment. It felt binding and uncomfortable.

At the time I got the intuitive insight from Spirit to offer my year-long Masterful Living Course, I immediately thought, “Ugh. I don’t want to commit to that.” I could imagine that there would be times when I just didn’t feel like teaching, but I’d have to. Like it or not.

Now, 10 years later, we have 4 different levels of Masterful Living. I’m committed to teaching hundreds of classes each year, plus my radio show, and more. I am so grateful to live my passion and share it with you and others. It’s quite a blessing.

I remember how blocked, resistant and reluctant I used to feel, and I’m so glad that’s not how I feel now. That was painful. I kept thinking things would have to change in the world before I could actually be a full time teacher and minister.

It was so challenging for me to make the shift into my life as a professional minister and teacher and that’s precisely why I LOVE to support others as much as I can. If you feel called to participate in this ministry on a level of teaching and ministering and think you might be interested in our developing Teacher & Minister Program, please check out my Q&A today.

Living the Answered Prayer

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

Things are changing at the Power of Love Ministry. The Power of Love is expanding and expressing in new and miraculous ways.

I’m excited that Spirit has us working on a Teacher & Minister Training Program at the Power of Love Ministry. We’re still working out the details, but I’ll be doing a Q&A about the program on Thursday. You can register now to learn more. Please bring your questions on Thursday!

I am meeting more and more people in our classes who are definitely called to share at higher and higher levels – to teach, to speak, to write, and to lead and I am compelled to support them.

Not long after when I first graduated from Ministerial School at Agape University in 2006, Michael Beckwith said a prayer for my ministry and he told me that he saw an image while he was praying. It was very strong for him and unusual for him to have something like this come to him during prayer, he said.

He told me he saw two large diamonds, one on top of the other spinning in a field of gold. He said he didn’t know what it meant, but it was very powerful. Spirit told me the meaning, and I shared it with him, “I have a very strong call to assist ministers to be more inspired, more confident, more supported. and I think that the top diamond is those ministers, and I am the bottom diamond.”

Rev. Michael said, “Good. Because ministers need all the help they can get.”

I know that field of gold is the field of infinite wisdom, pure intelligence and illumination!

I’ve worked with many ministers over the years and a surprising number of them feel like a fake. And many feel overwhelmed. They feel unqualified to be an inspirational presence and they feel insecure about sharing their message – and this after YEARS of training and experience!

What I see developing in our classes is that the participants are naturally stepping out, sharing, teaching, speaking, writing and shining their gifts and talents in the world in ways that are powerful and beautiful. Like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, they had the power within them all along and now they’re feeling confident to share it. I LOVE to see that. That’s my answered prayer.

Truly, my answered prayer is to support the diamond hearts and diamond minds of this world to live their passion! That’s MY passion!

If you have any interest at all in teaching, sharing, ministering or being a prayer practitioner, consider joining me tomorrow for the Q&A about the Teacher & Minister Program.

Prove God

Sunday, July 15th, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Amazing!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Are you wishing to share your gifts and talents, but feel like you’ve been playing small?
Do you have self-doubt you’d like to transform so that you can share from Spirit and inspire others?

No Resistance to Love

Friday, July 13th, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Let’s surrender to Love and resist energizing negativity.

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

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

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

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

The Best

Saturday, June 16th, 2018

What’s the greatest feeling in the world? For me, it’s when I can feel that my experience of Love is true, honest and full-on. When I can feel that flow of unconditional Love, it’s the best.

What I notice is that the experience I’m having doesn’t have to be the most perfect looking. The people I’m extending Love to don’t have to be doing anything FOR me.

It’s absolutely wonderful when I can LOVE everything just as it is. That’s the BEST!
It’s so wonderful when we ALLOW ourselves to simply Love someone without condition, without opinion, without control and manipulation. It’s thrilling to be able to offer a gift of Love and have ZERO attachments, and to feel that gift is fully accepted in the way it was intended. That’s a pure experience of Love connection.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I AM One with the One who Invented Love. My story is a Love story!

Learning

Thursday, June 14th, 2018

I can be like a sponge, soaking up everything in my environment. That’s one of the reasons why I like to be out in nature so much. In every moment of every day we’re taking in information, we’re constantly learning and observing. I say all the time: we’re always teaching the efficacy of our choices. Everyone around us is watching us and noticing whether our choices bring us happiness or upset. They learn by watching, we learn by experiencing.

Along this spiritual journey, the time came when I recognized that much of what I’ve learned from what people told me is untrue. These untruths that keep getting passed along stem from a belief in duality. A belief in good and evil – opposing forces. Now, I Know we live in a unified field – one and only one. Even though it doesn’t alway seem like it.

I believe that evil is not a separate force, but simply that which appears to be destructive.

Now, I remember that there are seasons to everything. Sometimes the winter season feels intensely destructive, and then spring comes and the renewal begins again.

I consider how many things I hear in a day that I could easily accept as true that are actually completely false. This is has been a major topic of conversation in the news for the last couple of years.

There are all manner of untruths. There are so many that are commonly accepted that we don’t even stop to think about whether they’re true – we just accept them.

Consider statements such as:

People don’t change.
Life is hard and then you die.
It’s better to give then to receive.
Time heals all wounds.

None of those is true. They are beliefs that have become accepted as truths, but they are not true. They are false.

Any lie I choose to believe will create upset in one way or another – guaranteed. The upset calls the falsehood to my attention so that I can address it. Upsets are triggers that let us know when something is up for healing. Let’s not miss anymore healing opportunities. Let’s make use of them ALL.

In ZEN MIND, BEGINNER’S MIND, Shunryu Suzuki writes, “When you forget all your dualistic ideas, everything becomes your teacher, and everything can be the object of worship.”

Today I invite you to make a list of beliefs you’ve accepted that you’d like to forget and replace with the truth. Be sure to include beliefs about yourself as well as beliefs about life and others. Doing this exercise will be profoundly helpful and healing, even if you only take 10 minutes with it.

By choosing to actively release our false beliefs, we take a giant step toward living in Truth. Through the personal practice of living in alignment with Truth we are a positive voice for truth in the world. Be in service to the Light. Be willing to forget the false! True learning is remembering the eternal truth.

Finding Happiness in This World

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018

The topic of my radio show today seems aptly timed. It comes as a request from a listener, and I notice that Spirit has timed it to coincide some well known, admired and loved people taking their own lives.

Happiness can seem entirely elusive when we’re looking outside ourselves for the remedy to our unhappiness. If we are aware that happiness is an inside job, then we may feel it’s twice as impossible.

Instead of looking for happiness or trying to find it, we can, instead, release the blocks to happiness. The blocks to happiness are the blocks to Love – they are the same. Rather than trying to find happiness, we can learn to ALLOW it. Our happiness is already available to us, it’s just that we’re preventing it.

This is where angels can be so helpful. Angels are like free-agents of happiness, helping us all-ways, all the time. We can be open to receiving.

People often tell me that when they first heard me talking about angels they thought I was nuts. Then, I encourage them to give the angels a chance to speak to them and help them release the blocks to Love, Peace, Prosperity, Joy and the all-good of life.

Once they start listening to angels, people have a whole new experience of life. Ask the angels to help you today and every day! You’ll be amazed at the results!

If you have an angel story, please share it below in the comments section!

Intention

Monday, June 11th, 2018

My life significantly improved when I decided to make my spiritual awakening my #1 priority. It’s a shift in thinking – and it shifted everything in my life for the better.

In this world, everything is a projection of our minds. It’s all part of our awakening experience. Every aspect of our life and every detail – from paying our bills, to doing of dishes, to picking up the kids from school – EVERYTHING can be a part of our spiritual practice. Even facebook can be a part of our spiritual practice.

ALL that it requires is a willingness to see with Divine Eyes and to make healing the priority. The rest will be given to us. The Higher Holy Spirit Self will turn everything into a part of our spiritual practice if we ALLOW it.

What I’ve learned is that living this way makes life SO much easier. It transforms EVERYTHING. Decide that this is what you’d like to do. For instance, let’s take a look at two intentions for doing a simple task like cutting the grass in the yard.

Intention #1 – we can mow the lawn in order to have the chore done and that’s all. If that’s our intention we might spend the whole time ruminating about what other people think of us.

Intention #2 – we can do the same chore as part of our spiritual practice. If working in the yard is part of our spiritual practice we can make it a mindfulness meditation and time to be meditate in nature. We can dedicate ourselves to sharing beauty and communing with Mother Earth.

Our intention will determine the benefits. There’s no extra charge to make even the most mundane chores part of our spiritual practice and there’s so much benefit.

Think about running errands as a way to bless people all over town! Every chore you do in your home is a gift to Life itself. Why not make every moment a blessing? No extra charge to bless everything every moment of every day! That’s a day of continuous blessings!

There’s so much healing that’s available to us now. We really can give the Spirit the heavy lifting of taking from us all that doesn’t serve us. Willingness is what’s required. Are you willing to put Spirit in charge of your life?

Let’s focus on a strong intention to put Spirit in charge all day, every day.

I encourage you to make your spiritual life your whole life, and awakening your priority. You’ll be amazed at how much your life improves. Surrender needing to be in charge, until you realize that your Spirit is in charge and that’s who you REALLY are!

Reflection

Wednesday, June 6th, 2018

One of the questions I frequently get is whether or not a situation is a mirror or not. For instance, if someone treats me badly, is it a mirror? It could be, but it might not be, and it’s helpful to know the answer.

Fortunately, there’s a way to know clearly if your experience is mirroring something in your consciousness back to you. And it’s really good to be able to know whether what you’re seeing in the world is a reflection of your inner perspective or not, so that you can deal with it appropriately and have the healing you aspire to.

It’s helpful to know that the mirror is always valuable. The reflection isn’t designed to hurt us or upset us even though it might seem like it does. The reflection is to help us see what we haven’t been able to recognize in ourselves.

“Teach no one that he is what you would not want to be. Your brother is the mirror in which you see the image of yourself as long as perception lasts. A Course in Miracles, Text-7. VII. 3:8-9

Often when we can see it in others then we can have more compassion for it then when we see it in ourselves. If we haven’t healed it, and it’s being mirrored back to us, there’s a great opportunity for expansion and healing. We can be grateful for the mirror and the trigger both! The mirror is helping us to bring the darkness to the light for healing

Here’s how you tell if it’s a mirror of your unhealed stuff or not:

It’s your mirror if if upsets you.
If it upsets you then there’s something to be transformed and healed, something to RE-cognize.

If it doesn’t upset you then it’s a cry for love, a call for compassion and you’re experiencing it in order to be truly helpful and a healing presence.

It’s not that complicated!

The thing that makes it SEEM complicated is our experiences of inner conflict. Conflict comes when we say we’d like the Peace of God, but then we choose something else. When we’re consistent in our choosing Love, the cause of conflict fades.

We often say that we’d like to be a healing presence, when in fact, we sometimes like the idea better than the experience – especially when the experience is messy.

We get to decide how we walk in the world. What’s your way of walking in the world 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!

Worthy to Minister

Tuesday, June 5th, 2018

I’ve known so many people over the years who have had such a strong desire to earn a living sharing their passion for spirituality and some of them have actually followed their heart and done what they felt called to do, but many have not. They’re playing small and they know it. It hurts.

When I first started in Ministerial School, in our very first gathering, a weekend retreat, we were told that the majority of the people who were in our program would probably never follow through and have a profession as a minister.

It made sense to me. Feelings of unworthiness stop so many people, it’s crazy! It is true insanity for any of us to believe that we’re unworthy of following our calling. Honestly, it doesn’t actually make sense and here’s why:

Think about it. As an example, let’s imagine that you have the talent and the ability to be an amazing dancer. What if you felt unworthy of dancing so you just never did any dancing. Or you only danced by yourself and never with other people. You see what I mean?

We are already imbued with everything we need to live our calling, whatever it is.

Many feel called to minister, but they don’t feel worthy because they judge themselves for not being loving enough, or pure enough, but that’s all self-judgment and it’s easily healed if we’re willing.

Healing the self-judgment is part of our training as ministers and spiritual teachers. I had to heal my own sense of unworthiness in order to live the life of my dreams, which is the life I live now. Recently someone asked me to discuss this on my radio show – so, that’s my topic for today!

Relationship Harmony

Sunday, June 3rd, 2018

I’ve experienced some extraordinary relationship healing in my life and I’m so very grateful. For me, there’s been nothing more upsetting to me than the difficulties in my relationships. They have challenged me to the core of my being. I’m so glad that I learned that this is precisely what relationships are for.

I’ve learned not to walk away from a difficult relationship.
I’ve learned to never give up on myself or anyone else.

Instead, I’ve come to absolutely know that the thing to do is to give it UP to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for miraculous healing. This method works, but that doesn’t make it easy.

Relationship attachments can be like an alien parasite. It makes me think of the terrifying movie, Aliens with Sigourney Weaver (LOVE her!). Remember when the member of the crew was on the operating table and the alien exploded out of his belly? I went through a period where I was undoing the ego at such a rapid rate that I felt that I was pregnant with an alien baby terrorist that was trying to eat me alive from the inside.

It’s that feeling when the third chakra is going through such an intense cleansing. The third chakra, at the solar plexis, is all about our self-perception. When we’re perceiving ourselves as the ego, the small, selfish self, then it’s a constant battle with an inner terrorist. We’ll project it outward into ALL of our relationships and never feel self.

When we’re willing to shift identification to the Higher Holy Spirit Self, then we can begin to see clearly what every relationship is for. Then, we can have holy relationships. It’s intensely challenging, but THANK GOD we don’t have to figure out HOW to make it all happen. We only have to allow.

This is the time where we’re all learning about Self-Love – Self with a capital S. This is the curriculum, and we can delay, and we can avoid, but we’ll still have to do the curriculum eventually. Let’s get to it! Heaven is at hand!

The best way to get to it is really focus on loving yourself IN all of your relationships.

I dedicate February to relationships on my weekly radio show. Many have told me those episodes have really helped them to have a new and healing perspective on their relationships. They are all free for the listening and downloading. Sign up for the podcast and you’ll have easy access to them all!

We’re almost there! I’m getting ready to announce three new trainings for those who are interested in professional training for your spiritual expansion. These three events are going to be co-led by Jon Mundy. Registration information is coming early next week!

Time

Saturday, June 2nd, 2018

Yesterday, I had a good long talk with my precious friend Lisa Natoli. We were sharing that we were both getting the same intuitive guidance to slow down and take more time to be with Spirit. We’re both aware that the next steps, the healing, the inspiration and the deep sense of rightness that we are interested in come through the choice to be with the Presence.

One thing that I know bothers many people is the concept that there’s not enough time. It does feel like we’re bound by time and space, but if we’re willing, we can break those bonds and open our minds to see the truth of it.

We can say that we know that time and space are an illusion, but if we’re bothered by a sense of lack of time, then we don’t REALLY know it. We believe something else is true, and that’s the thing that bothers us. It’s an intellectual concept and we don’t actually know it.

I used to be so very bothered by not having enough time. I can tell you that I had a very strong belief that I was wasting time. I believed that I needed to be far more time efficient in order to be more productive and get more done.

I finally saw that all of that urgency around getting things done and being productive was to compensate for my belief in myself as being fundamentally wrong and bad. I felt SO bad that I needed to accomplish more to cover it up and compensate.

When I was younger I needed a lot more sleep than I do now. I found that when I started to put more energy into meditating, forgiving, letting the past go and being compassionate that my need for sleep sharply decreased.

I used to need nine hours a night to feel fully rested. Now, many nights spirit wakes me up after six hours and sometimes less. I rarely set a clock, so Spirit just wakes me when it’s time. I know that I used to need that time for processing things in dream time.

It bothered me greatly that I wasted so much time in sleeping. I tried some crazy things to try and reduce the amount of time that I slept each day, but it only ended up in an increase in caffeine intake and ultimately I got sick. I used to have all kinds of schemes to try and be smarter than life. I found they were all ways to learn through experience. Now, I prefer to re-cognize through direct knowing, experiential learning takes a lot of time, energy and resources and it can be quite unpleasant at times.

I used to have nightmares and stressful dreams frequently. Now, I cannot recall the last time I had a nightmare and stressful dreams are rare. I’m letting things go. Since I’m carrying less baggage, I don’t get so exhausted and I don’t need as much sleep. I wake up feel refreshed most days and I sleep quite soundly.

When I was in ministerial school I was overwhelmed by my experience of lack in the time department. I felt like I was always running to catch up. I truly believed there was never enough time. I felt like I was on a hamster wheel and no matter how fast I spun that wheel, always running, I couldn’t get enough done.

One day in contemplation I realized that I had been deluded. Of course I had enough time! I’m an eternal being of Love and Light. How could I not have an enough time? I’m an integral part of the Infinite?

Not enough time? Insanity!
From then on the belief in not enough time faded and now, there’s always about 500 hours of things that I could do and would like to have done each day, that don’t get done because I choose to do other things, but NOT because I don’t have enough time.

I definitely discovered that the greatest time-saver there is my spiritual practice. The more I practice being loving with myself and others, the more time that I have to invest in living an inspired life.

I even began to have experiences that showed me that time could be stretched, shortened and bent in ways that I had intuitively known were possible, but hadn’t experienced before then because of my limited beliefs. Now, I have interesting experiences with time and can feel it’s malleable illusory quality.

God will eliminate so many challenges if we’re willing to put our faith in God, in first cause rather than in the world of effects.

I have lived for more than a dozen years feeling no longer tortured by a belief in lack of time. I’m so grateful that Spirit showed me the truth that set me free!

BTW, I’ve done a number of episodes of my weekly A Course in Miracles weekly Radio Show on the topic of Time, Saving Time, and Maximizing Time that you might find interesting. You can search through the archive for episodes on whatever topic you’re interested in.

Label

Friday, June 1st, 2018

I notice that the ego uses labeling as a method to help sort and separate who is good and who is bad. Labeling is placing a meaning on things. I notice that I have a thought from time to time, in reaction to seeing something that is done differently than the way I’d prefer it, and that thought goes something like this:

“Why is it so hard to …”

Why is it so hard to pick your clothes up off the floor?

Why is it so hard for you to just ask me what I’d like instead of thinking you know based on information from a year ago?

Why is it so hard to just tell me what you’d like?

Why is it so hard to just put your dirty dishes in the dishwasher?

… and on and on and on.

I realized that the whole purpose of asking those questions was to find the answer, which is always a label.

Why is it so hard to pick your cloths up off the floor? Because there’s something wrong with you.

Why is it so hard to just tell me what you’d like? Because you’re difficult.

Why is it so hard to just put your dirty dishes in the dishwasher? Because you just don’t care and you’re selfish.

… and on and on and on!

The questions I was asking weren’t helpful to my Spirit.
They were just an excuse to label things as a problem.

I’ve learned that labels are an ego tool for helping increase a sense of separation, and I don’t need that anymore. I’ve learned all that I can from feeling separate and I’m not interested in that anymore!

Are you aware of ways that you look for labels?

Let’s abandon the label making habits and extend compassion instead. It’s far more productive. In fact, it’s healing!
