Reboot Your Future

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

An active practice of forgiveness includes letting go of the interpretation and meaning that I made of the past. Along with not judging things now, not giving things meaning now, so that I don’t have to forgive them later.

In this way, I’m working in the past, present and in the future.

When we heal the negative experiences and beliefs about the past, it feels like it doesn’t exist anymore. The energetic residue is gone.

Anywhere in your life where you feel that you are being held captive by your personality, forgiveness will set you free. This is why forgiveness is an act of profound Self-love. And, it’s also a gift of Love to all beings.

Please take a moment now to consider how your life would change if you were always caring and kind to yourself and you always made the most loving choices. Think about just reviewing recent events. Can you see any place in your life where you were unkind to yourself, lacking in compassion, punishing?

Sometimes it’s like this: we’re distracted and not paying attention and we’re also in a hurry and so we’re rushing. As a result, we get into a car accident, a fender bender. Maybe we were distracted and worried about money and now we have an even bigger money problem.

Maybe we were worried about being late for work and so we were rushing and now we’re REALLY going to be late for work. So, of course, having made the error, you change your tune, and start to become very kind and compassionate with yourself, right?

Most people then start to blame and attack themselves. Now the berating starts.

Most people just double down on their self-attack, until it exhausts them and they find something else to complain about. Our life becomes a spiraling whirlpool of negativity pulling us down.

I have really learned that when any of these things happen – like a fender bender – it’s time to stop, look inward and listen to Spirit. Stop, look, listen.

And be grateful
Be compassionate.

That’s the way that we really do change the past, present and future.
In this moment now we can forgive. And that sends a healing wave in all directions of time and space.

Through forgiveness our life is vastly improved and transformed.

You can try it for yourself.
It’s really impossible to believe until you experience it for yourself.

Another Way to See the World

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

The way to recognize that you’re not seeing things correctly is to notice when you are upset. When we’re upset, it’s a healing opportunity. The upset is our divine alarm clock to let us know that we’ve got a skewed view. The skew of the view is why we’re upset, it’s never for the reason we think.

When our view is skewed, we can claim our healing opportunity gratefully and allow the healing and move on with grace and gratitude. Now, that’s an option I like!

What I don’t like is feeling like it’s my job to be the police of the world.

When I first started to share more about A Course in Miracles around the world, I felt a number of people coming at me with their attacks. They wanted to prove I didn’t know what I was talking about. They wanted to be right.

I was surprised at how many attacking and unloving comments I received. I realized that not everyone who studies ACIM aspires to really live the teachings and to be at Peace. And yet, the study of the Course will bring Peace ultimately. Our willingness is ALL that’s required.

At first, when people were attacking me, I thought it was pretty crazy, and it was. I prayed for those who were feeling compelled to attack.

My purpose was to facilitate a healing and prayer is the medium of miracles. I feel my prayers were answered because situations were transformed. To change the world, we work at the level of the mind that is in our heart.

If we’re upset, there’s another way to see the world and we can find it. To see the better way, we must be willing to see beyond our projections. This is a skill we can cultivate. It’s what I’m training myself to do and showing others how to do. A change of view is an inside job and it’s a great job to have!

Will you live in Peace? Or will you repeat the past? This is the topic of my radio show this week – scroll down for more info.

Your Life Purpose

Monday, April 16th, 2018

Many times people ask me to help them uncover their life purpose. I get it. People don’t feel successful in their life until they tap into living their life purpose. What I’ve realized is that our life purpose really isn’t about DOING anything. Only the ego wants to do lots of things in order to get recognition. The Spirit, our Higher Holy Spirit Self knows that the whole reason for our existence is to express and reveal ourselves as Love.

Once you know your life purpose, life gets a whole lot better – if you’re willing to actually fulfill it. Here’s what I know about discovering your life purpose:

Being loving is your purpose in this world.
It’s my purpose too.
It’s everyone’s life purpose!

Releasing the blocks to Love and healing the patterns of negative beliefs is our purpose and being loving is the way we do that.

It’s so simple many people aren’t satisfied with it because their ego can’t accept it. It doesn’t seem special enough. After all, anyone can do it.

We don’t need special equipment.
We don’t need anyone’s permission.
We don’t need special training.
Everything we need to fulfill our purpose is already pre-installed.

When I began to accept my purpose for living as forgiving and being loving then I began to tap into my highest potential and things really began to change. I AM so grateful I could see and accept my life purpose.

When you decide to really succeed at living your life purpose of being loving then everything else will fall into place and you’ll find that each day offers remarkable fulfillment. When we choose to BE the Light and live the light, then we cannot fail. The Light never fails, because it doesn’t know how. Failure is a false concept.

We’re all blessed, SO blessed, and when we’re being loving we know it.

You can live your life purpose!

My Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive is not just a professional training, it’s a deeply healing opportunity to let go of false beliefs. If you read the things people have said about how their lives change as a result, you will see that this is an opportunity for profound lasting personal healing.

Peace In This World

Sunday, April 15th, 2018

The ends is in the means. If we’d like to get where we’d like to go, we have to be sure that our desire matches our means to get there or otherwise we’re merely in fantasy.

I know A LOT about fantasy. I spent so much time in fantasy for years. I am so glad I decided to actually make changes and start living my dream rather than just wishing and hoping.
I’m always making either a constructive or destructive contribution to my life. It can be subtle and challenging to discern, but since I desire to make a positive contribution wherever possible, since I intend to be the bringer of Love and Light, I’m committed to paying attention to even the most subtle waves of energy I’m sending. My little willingness has become a commitment.

My willingness went from being a tiny flame to a full on fire. Yours can too.
How frequently do I think about whether or not my actions are constructive? All day long. That’s my willingness demonstrating in my active practice of awareness.

I can feel the difference between constructive and destructive immediately. All that’s required is for me to be awake in the moment. To be awake in the moment requires my willingness. I’m willing to be awake. I desire to be awake.

How many times have I tried to solve a problem without considering whether or not my solution was actually constructive or merely a band-aid? Millions.

Sometimes what I’ve done to make things better has been reactionary, borne of a fear of what might happen. Sometimes I’ve known that what I was doing was actually destructive and I’ve gone ahead and done it anyway in order to get a temporary feeling of resolution. This is what I see others doing all the time. We especially see it in politics.

People use violence as a quick way to attempt to end violence.

It never brings Peace, but they try it again anyway.

The ends is in the means. The way to change the violent world is through being peaceful ourselves. Hating the haters doesn’t help us.

I did an episode of my A Course in Miracles weekly Radio Show on Peace in This World that may be of interest.

In Trumpet of Conscience, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. says, “Means and ends must cohere because the end is preexistent in the means, and ultimately destructive means cannot bring about constructive ends.”

A Course in Miracles tells us: “How can one be sincere and say, ‘I want this above all else, and yet I do not want to learn the means to get it?’ To obtain the goal the Holy Spirit indeed asks little. He asks no more to give the means as well. The means are second to the goal. And when you hesitate, it is because the purpose frightens you, and not the means.”

The bottom line is: if I have a problem and I try to solve it with anything other than Love, I will still have a problem. In other words, “what goes around, comes around.”

Many people resist the truth that every thought is a choice. They’d rather step back from taking responsibility for every thought they think. And yet, in taking that responsibility is the very power to change their lives. Many people feel powerless yet resist the one thing that will empower them. Responsibility. That’s where having a strong aspiration serves us. I desire to serve the Light with every choice I make. I am willing to take responsibility for every choice I make.

And this is why, I offer to support those who really wish to do the work and not just talk about it.

Today, in every area of my life, to the very best of my ability, I choose constructive means to bring about constructive ends, for the purpose of our collective awakening. In this way, every day, I can contribute to the liberation of all beings from the dream of separation and suffering. In this way, I can make every day a day of Beauty. In this way, I honor all beings.

Every day I write inspiration and record a prayer to go with it. You can fill out the form on the top right of this page to subscribe now, if you’re not already subscribed.

Healing the Ancient Guilt

Saturday, April 14th, 2018

In our essence, we’re all perfect Spirit seemingly poured into different expressions of human experience. And this is where we gave ourselves permission to judge, to sort, separate and label. The more we see each other as separate, different, wrong, bad, better or worse, the more our perspective is skewed and we cannot see correctly.

We’ve cultivated a distorted perspective of being better than, worse then and separate from, and because we’ve done it on purpose, intentionally cultivating this false view of ourselves and others, we feel badly. Deep down, every one of us feels guilty for giving ourselves permission to attack others, and ourselves, with thoughts of better and worse, when deep down, we do know that we’re one with each other and not separate.

It’s an ancient guilt that we’re in the process of healing. This ancient guilt is why we all feel less than perfectly lovable.

We’re one with each other.

Can I possibly believe that you are less than lovable and not believe it of myself?

If deep down, I know that you and I are one, how can I actually believe that it’s possible to paint you as bad and wrong and not paint myself that way too?

Well, here’s how – we made a divide in our mind. We made a split.
We can call it right mind and wrong mind.
Clear mind and distorted mind.

With the split in our mind, we can now see ourselves as separate from each other, but it has a HUGE cost to pay in order to make the illusion of the split possible. We had to also agree that we were separate from Spirit. It was the only way.

What we didn’t realize was that the split in our mind would also prevent us from feeling our God-nature. All of our gifts that are essential to our living a joyful life would be hidden from us on the other side of the split.

In our awareness of oneness and union in Spirit we’re able to access our true divine nature and experience the many gifts of God. These gifts are our natural state of being. They are sometimes seen as colored rays of light, like the aspects of light we see in a rainbow. They are the spiritual qualities of being that we truly are such as:

  • Love
  • Joy
  • Freedom
  • Wisdom
  • Clarity
  • Peace
  • Harmony
  • Beauty
  • Wholeness
  • Prosperity
  • Purity
  • Abundance
  • And more

When we seek the kingdom first, when we put Spirit first, then all of these spiritual qualities are now awake and available in our mind. This is our true Abundance, remembering our lineage, our ancestry, our inheritance!

Our way back to our true reality is being willing to recognize what is false and stop identifying with a smaller, weaker, selfish self. We are truly miraculous beings of Love and Light and our destiny is to remember the kingdom is within. Let’s look for our blessings where we can find them, already pre-installed, within.

Instead of looking for separation and differences, let’s look for similarities and unity.

Undoing the Errors

Tuesday, April 10th, 2018

There are many different kinds of errors that we make, or so it seems. Sometimes our errors are that we were unloving and unkind. Sometimes it’s simply that we weren’t very observant and didn’t notice what was going on and we made a choice that ended up seeming to work against us.

Sometimes there are errors of not being helpful, and instead being passive or withholding. So much time to make so many errors! And the aftermath is feeling stupid, bad, wrong, hopeless, helpless, guilty, ashamed, resentful, regretful, and a few more painful places to dwell.

There is an answer. There is a way to undo all the errors, and we can choose it, if we’re willing to we can actually have a healing. We can let go of the painful past. It does require willingness and it does require one of two other things.

We must either be so committed to ending our suffering that we’re willing to stop focusing on the problem and start focusing on the solution.

Or, we must be Self-loving, and care enough about ourselves to stop punishing ourselves.

Either desiring to stop the pain OR Self-Love (which often will propel us to stop the pain), will open our mind enough that if we combine it with some real willingness we can give the heavy lifting to the holy spirit. And this is the topic of my radio show today!

Let’s get out of suffering.
Let’s choose Self-Love
Let’s be done with the past.
Let’s stop playing small and open to a beautiful and bright future!
Even if you don’t believe it’s possible, you can still succeed!

If you’re a little bit willing, the Higher Holy Spirit Self will show you the way!

Attachments to Plans

Monday, April 9th, 2018

In lesson 135 of A Course in Miracles it tells us that “a healed mind does not plan.” This can be quite confusing for many people. How do we live without plans?

As I write this, I’m in Poland and later today I travel to Germany and then tomorrow I fly back to New York and travel to New Jersey to stay with my brother. As soon as I arrive in New Jersey I have a class to teach. On Wednesday, I have two classes. And much more. Obviously, I have many plans.

I probably have more plans than the average person. And here’s how I’ve learned to apply the powerful teaching about having a healed mind and not planning so that I can be free in my mind every day:

It’s about not having attachments.

The key to the end of all suffering is to release all the mental attachments we have to how we believe things should be and how we believe they should not be. The shoulds get in the way. They are designed to get in the way of our happiness.

I make so many plans, and I find the constant release of attachment when plans must change to be a healing opportunity for my mind.

We may not realize it, but we have so many plans. Many times they are hidden, and many times they are the cause of a constant stream of upsets, big and small. For instance, sometimes I might be staying with my brother’s family and have a plan about some fresh raspberries I’ll have for breakfast. And when I go to eat them, someone has beat me to it.

I can be upset about not having what I’d planned, which shows my attachment, or I can release my plan and discover something new is best for me now. When I bought the raspberries that felt good to me, or maybe it was just my ego. I don’t really know what anything is for (ACIM Lesson 25).

What I do know is that any day I can be peaceful is a good day.
Any day I can release an attachment is a good day.
Any day I can feel my heart opening and my mind liberating is a very good day!

I’d rather have a good day than have raspberries!

I used to get upset every day, many times a day.
The release of my plans has been such a great gift to me.

Are you willing to watch your mind for your attachment to your plans?
Are you willing to Love yourself so much that you’d rather be peaceful than cling to your plan?

I cannot say enough about how beneficial it is to release the plans, to listen to the guidance, to practice a new way of living and being. Everyone in your life will benefit!

Being the Joy-full Learner

Sunday, April 8th, 2018

I’ve learned that I can choose to be the happy learner on a daily basis – or not. I had a great experience yesterday in Warsaw, Poland. I almost missed it.

On Friday evening, one of my hosts had insisted that she take me sight seeing in the morning. I must confess I really didn’t wish to. I’m not one for sight seeing anymore. It’s not why I travel. I travel to be able to offer workshops, retreats and classes and to participate in community.

I very much appreciate being able to visit sacred sites – this is a big part of what I feel called to. Many times I feel that I’m making “last rounds.” I feel so strongly that I’m on a journey of completion.

Ten years ago I was on a ski vacation (I love to ski!) with friends, Matthew and Marilyn, who had just had their numerology done and it had been a great revelation to them. Numerology was something I hadn’t really thought much about. My friends insisted that they do my numerology and so they asked for my full name and birthday.

In numerology, each letter has a value. A is 1, B is 2 and so on. It turns out that my name, Jennifer Helen Hadley, comes out to be the master number 99. When you add the 9 and 9 together you get 18 which, when added together is a 9.

My birthday adds up to a 9 as well. When you add my name and birthday together you get another 9. I’m all 9’s.

9 is concerned with global healing and wisdom, with humanity’s awakening awareness, and that’s certainly me. It’s also the number of completion. It’s the last stop before going back to zero. 9 also has some other amazing factors about it.

Numerology isn’t something I’ve studied, but it’s shown me another layer of the extraordinary patterns encoded into each moment that support our life of Love. Every moment has a huge web of Love enfolding us, and if we give up our attachments to our view of life, we can have the eyes to see and the ears to hear the clear view of Love in each moment.

Life is interesting. Nothing is random. Understanding the complete and careful nature of God in and through every aspect of our life has helped me to give up being so controlling and has helped me to relax into spiritual support from everywhere, visible and invisible.

Back to yesterday in Warsaw. My host was very insistent that I do some sightseeing with her in the morning and I was VERY resistant. I had wished to catch up on many emails, to pack for our trip to Krakow and to have a leisurely morning without conversation. I was after some quiet time. Since I generally don’t feel called to do sight seeing, particularly in an information gathering way, I was feeling that I wished to keep to my original plan. I thought I knew what was best. Yet, I didn’t wish to offend my host and refuse – she was very insistent, so I was going along with her tour.

Fortunately, God has a plan beyond my plan and for this I’m grateful. We went with two other friends to tour the Warsaw Ghetto. I hadn’t thought that would be the tour. My host took me to see the memorials to the more than 300,000 jews who were effectively captured, imprisoned and killed during World War II in the Warsaw Ghetto.

We got to make prayers there. It was SO powerful and moving and I knew that was why I had come to Warsaw and I might have missed it because I thought we were going to be doing a different kind of sight seeing.

In order to be the happy learner, I must rely upon my NOT knowing what anything is for. I am grateful, I didn’t insist on things being my ego’s way. Thank GOD! I have a bit of willingness so I don’t miss the point of things!

Many times I’ve learned the same lessons in different ways and I am grateful that I can have more clarity every day. Thank God!

I often share experiences like this on my weekly ACIM radio show. There’s a constant stream of opportunity to have more clarity and I rejoice that I’m aware and I am grateful that I am so grateful to be a happy learner. This is what living A Course in Miracles means to me.

And still, I aspire to stop learning and simply remember the truth that is my liberation from having to learn. My goal is awakening, the full restoration of my right mind. I keep this in front of me every day and I’ve learned not to mind learning, and instead to be the happy learner. I had many years as the resentful and regretful learner and being the happy learner is Joy-full. I can remember to laugh now.

Yesterday morning, I finally let go of my resistance and went all in and the miracle was revealed. In my journey of completion, I find I’m called to various places simply to pray and help move the energy of the past, lack, limitation and stagnation. This is a great gift to me. I am so grateful where once I used to be a pain in the butt to everyone in my life, now I can bring and share a blessing. I’m not playing small anymore and it’s a great relief.

My invitation to you is to see if there’s somewhere you’re blocking your giving and receiving blessings because you’ve already made up your mind what things are for.

Today’s prayer is for Being the Joy-full Learner.

I had a wonderful experience of this same learning about not knowing what anything is for some years ago that was a great learning and very much the same lesson.

You can sign up for my daily Spiritual Espresso there and become one of my daily prayer partners. There’s no charge. All are welcome. There are thousands of us around the world.

Each day offers many blessings and the greatest blessing of all is that we can stop learning through painful experience and start remembering through our willingness.

Decide

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

When I look back at the major decisions in my life, I can see the most life-changing ones had nothing to do with the circumstances of my life. Around the age of twenty-six, I began to meditate. Even though I was getting up at 5:30am, or something like that, and falling asleep during my meditation, my intention was carrying me to a higher place of awareness. Intention, when we truly hold it and energize it, is so powerful.

I remember making the decision that I was going to work towards being an enlightened being. When I made that decision I felt at least a hundred lifetimes away from that possibility. Now, I am choosing to experience it in this lifetime. I hold that it is happening for me now. That’s a big change in not so many years.

Part of what made that big change possible is my decision to make becoming a compassionate person a top priority for me. At the time, I mostly felt angry. Life was a series of disappointments to me. I didn’t feel I could trust people. I had a deep sense of self-hatred that I hadn’t even recognized yet. I didn’t know it then, but the self-hatred came from always feeling that I was failing at what I should be accomplishing.

I felt that I should be able to be more successful in the world. Yet no amount of success in the world appeased that hunger. I hated that I couldn’t get over the hump and feel worthy. I also hated that I was angry and hostile so much of the time. The only rest was to tune out and that didn’t feel restorative.

My decision to focus on becoming compassion was to alleviate feeling angry and hostile so much of the time. And you know what? It REALLY helped me. I began to vibrate at a higher level and things began to get easier. I began to experience a spiraling up in my vibration and my thoughts became less hostile. I began to experience some real relief.

The power of decision is one that I share about frequently because it has been so life-changing for me. The helpless and hopeless person isn’t willing to stick to their decisions. Their intentions are meaningless and that’s where the hopelessness comes from.

I encourage you to make a decision today about how you’d like to BE and how you’d like to FEEL in your life, and then stick to it.

It takes courage.
It takes heart.
And it makes all the difference in the world to you
– and to everyone your life touches.
Be the Love of your life.
Be the change.
Be it.

You are the decider.

Does God Hear Us?

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2018

So much of our human history has led us away from our relationship with the knower who knows, that inner guide that is our connection to Spirit and all life. Our prayers seem to fall on deaf ears. It seems as though God isn’t listening.

In a certain way, it makes sense that God wouldn’t be listening to us. After all, how often do we refuse to listen to God? It’s a mutual experience. And that’s how it feels some of the time.

I’ve believed that it made sense to me that God was ignoring me, punishing me, for ignoring Spirit. I’ve felt that I was getting what I deserved for being so unloving and so unkind. I’ve also felt punished for not properly sharing my gifts and talents.

I can see now that God doesn’t know anything about our begging and beseeching prayers. If we are begging to receive something in this world because we feel that IT will be our answered prayer, then we’re not perceiving correctly. We’re operating in the false construct, the matrix-mind that tells us we’ll be happy when things in the world are different.

When our message to God is, “give me what I want and need to be happy.” We’re not communicating anything of value. We’re actually broadcasting a false message of lack and limitation. In truth, in God’s reality, it makes no sense because we’ve been given the fullness of the kingdom and we’re not looking where it can be found, within. It’s our free-will choice to look where it can’t be found.

If we’re willing to cultivate the eyes that see and the ears that hear, we’ll recognize our happiness only comes from listening to Spirit, loving Spirit and sharing the Love that we inherently are. That’s the cause of happiness. Having no false God’s of things in this world.

We’re meant to enjoy the things of this world. I’m enjoying the tea I drink while I write this and the way the sun is rising in the sky and pouring into my simple little room in this yoga ashram in Germany. I’ve fully enjoyed the olives and cheeses that were my breakfast. I’m loving the birds singing outside the window.

Life is for loving and enjoying, and that cannot happen when we’re worshipping the false idols of the perfect body, the perfect job, the perfect number in the bank account. Love is already perfect, and that is what we are. We’re already perfect. What has to change for it to be revealed is our willingness to listen to Spirit so we can clearly be in communication.

I’ll share more about this and what A Course in Miracles has to say on my radio show today!

Priming the Pump of Prosperity

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

As you probably know, the reason we have colored eggs at Easter is because the early Christians co-opted the pagan spring rituals and turned them into Easter symbols. Eggs are obviously a sign of fertility and that’s what spring is about. Fertility and prosperity go together.

While it’s not spring everywhere now, it is here in Germany where I am, and back in the United States where I spend the majority of my time. It’s a time of birds returning, nests being built and gardens getting ready to plant (in between snow storms?)

I love the cycles of life and I find it helpful to tune into them and go with the flow. Let’s plant the seeds of our prosperity! The best way I know to do that is to prepare the soil of our mind and make room for our prosperity to flow. How can the prosperity flow into a crowded space? It’s not possible.

Is your attention on being receptive to the good, or is it crowded with resentments and regrets? No matter how much people hear that forgiveness is going to help them open to prosperity, they still resist doing it. I get it. I resisted too.

Finally I decided, I am willing to have an easier life.
In fact, I’m willing to do what it takes to make life a WHOLE LOT easier.

That was my choice, and I don’t ever regret it.
I don’t regret that I invested a couple of years letting all the resentments and regrets go. I put my heart into it and it paid off abundantly. My entire life is 100,000 better than it was – and that’s just me trying to quantify that which is not quantifiable. Forgiveness works.

Here’s why forgiveness increases prosperity:

We share the same mind.
We all share that one mind.
Everyone on this earth knows, intuitively, whether or not you are:

open
receptive
willing
feeling self-worthy
feeling capable
available for good
tuned in
loving
helpful
compassionate
patient
kind
caring
generous
etc.

There are no private thoughts, no real secrets.
We all feel it all.
We cannot hide anything, not really.

Therefore, people who are truly prosperous, abundant, happy, harmonious and available for the flow of Love will be attracted to like-minded people. They will generally not even notice the grudge holders, the ones who are clinging to resentments and regrets, guilt, blame and shame.

Forgiveness is the ONLY way to clear out that trash in our heart and mind.
There is no other way.
Prosperity is available now, we don’t have to wait.

In the meantime, like continues to attract like.

Those who are withholding and keeping score attract like-minded people. I know I did. For sure. I changed my mind and the whole world around me changed and the way the world related to me changed when I changed how I related to the world.

If you know you’ve been avoiding doing forgiveness work, just know, that’s what the issue is. It’s not out side you. It’s right where you are.

If you’d like help with forgiveness, I have my free forgiveness workshop you can get it right now. So many have written to tell me it helped them to break free of the past.

You can click here now to get my How to Get Over It forgiveness workshop, it’s my gift. Please pay it forward and share it with your friends. In fact, I highly recommend you do the workshop with a friend or loved one and make a fun time of it!

Leaving the crucifixion behind!

Sunday, April 1st, 2018

I feel so blessed this Easter morning. I’m in Germany and I’ve just come from a wonderful sunrise fire ceremony and making prayers with community. How wonderful!

I’m here with my teacher, Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo who is Native American, a Cherokee Chief. In our Cherokee heritage (my great, great, great grandmother was Cherokee), we take the full moon time (moon went full yesterday) as a time of releasing as well as a time of harvesting. It’s a blessing to have the full moon coincide with this Easter celebration of resurrection.

I am releasing all vestiges of the crucifixion. I am focused on resurrection. The resurrection of my awareness of my true identity is my focus and my intent. I’m committed to releasing the habits of learning through experience and I dedicate myself to remembering instead. Experience is wonderful, and I’m more clear than ever that we can remember the truth rather than try to understand it through experiential learning which takes time.

Through my practice of prayer, in the way ACIM teaches, I learned that what Earnest Holmes, the founder of Science of Mind said is true: “the only time it takes to have a healing is the time that it takes to have a realization.” Our realization of our own wholeness, beauty and perfection is at hand. The time is now. It’s our belief that healing takes time that we must surrender. It’s a false construct that no longer serves us.

We are in the time of transfiguration and resurrection.
We can have a realization of wholeness now.

Because we have believed healing takes time, it seemed to be so.
It’s not true. It’s a false concept. Time is nothing and it has no power.

There is one power: Love.
Love is our healer because Love is what we are.
When we remember to Love we are healed of false perceptions.

Love IS a realization of the truth.
The truth is a revelation of Love.

I’ve experienced instantaneous and miraculous healing through the power of realization many times. (I did my ACIM radio show about this last month.) I have prayed many thousands of times to know the truth and to remember that I AM already free.

I am already as holy as holy can be.
I cannot become any more holy.
My work is to remember this is true and stop forgetting.

As the sun was rising here in Germany this morning, I was contemplating the resurrection and it’s so clear to me that it comes through forgiveness. Forgiveness is the way in. Forgiveness is the clear path to our remembering our true identity and our eternal perfection. Forgiveness saved me from my false self.

My favorite lesson in A Course in Miracles is Lesson 68, Love Holds No Grievances. I have surely proven it’s powerful teaching that, “It is as sure that those who hold grievances will forget who they are, as it is certain that those who forgive will remember.”

The resurrection requires forgiveness. Forgiveness is so much easier than the ego has made it out to be. Forgiveness is letting go of our interpretations of things.

ACIM says, “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” T16:IV:6 We’re already there. We already have the golden ticket!

Our journey has been one of forgetting and remembering. That’s all. We forgot our true identity, our Wholeness, our Beauty and our Perfection. The way to remember it is to seek the kingdom first. The kingdom is within. It’s in our own heart. It’s already there.

ACIM tells us that our heart is the altar of God and that the barriers to Love are the false idols we have upon the altar. We must be willing to release our attachment to the false idols by letting go and giving them to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing. That’s all. That’s it.

And then, we’re sure to have everything added unto us. The full realization of our true identity will be revealed. It’s only hiding behind the crowd of false idols upon the altar of our heart.

The false idols are the grievances we hold. False idols are our attachments to what we think will make us happy. In Lesson 24, ACIM tells us, “In no situation that arises do you realize the outcome that would make you happy.” He’s unequivocal. There’s NO situation in which we know how to choose what will actually make us happy. In Lesson 25, he tells us this is because we “do not know what anything is for.”

Consider how emphatic he is. When we’re holding onto grievances, we don’t know what anything in our life is for, and we don’t have a single clue as to what would make us happy. That’s clear. That’s not hard to understand, unless we’re willing to sacrifice our happiness in order to hold onto our grievances. And for a long, long time, I was willing to make that sacrifice, but not anymore.

I finally realized that there’s no way I can let go of the pain of the past as long as I keep interpreting it the same way. I have to let go of the meaning I’ve made of things in order to stop blocking my happiness. It’s a decision I must make. No one else can do it for me.

Over the course of the last 13 years or so I’ve finally come to realize that I’d rather be happy. I’ve come to discover that I actually can be happy almost all of the time. I can be peaceful. Twenty years ago I wouldn’t have believed it was ever possible. Now I am living this way. It’s a miracle.

I am choosing the resurrection every day.
I’m letting go of the crucifixion every day.

And I’m dedicating my life to supporting those who are interested in this too. I feel so blessed for the community we’re creating. Around me I see people cultivating a great willingness. I see many who are challenged and I see many who are rising above the challenges. We are doing it and we’re doing it together.

Over and over again I see the people around me letting go of their grievances and handing them to Spirit to heal. I see them moving into a greater and greater willingness and I see their bodies healing, their relationships healing, their finances healing, their self-esteem healing. Everything in their lives is healing.

These people are healing so much faster than I did.
Because have so much more willingness than I did.
And each one’s willingness inspires another.

I’ve come to witness that when we can cultivate our willingness to be more present than not, we’re on our way to faster healing. It gets a WHOLE lot easier.

There’s a tipping point. When we’re 51% willing we still have a lot of resistance, but, in fact, we are MORE willing than not. And that’s a key to our success. Even being willing to be willing to be willing is some amount of willingness. Even that, is a victory.

Today, I feel victorious because I’m more willing than ever before.
Today, I feel the resurrection is happening and the crucifixion is fading from my mind.

I put myself and everyone else in my life upon the cross, and now we’re moving on. I’m done with that FOREVER.

Forgiveness is the way to remembering our true identity, to having everything else being added onto us, to healing our bodies, our finances, our relationships and everything else.

There is no other way, but through the door of forgiveness.
Everything else is bandages.
Everything else is managing and coping.
That’s not acceptable anymore.

If you’d like help with forgiveness, I have two offerings primary offerings to support you that are my gift. My forgiveness workshop, and my daily prayers.

You can click here now to get my How to Get Over It forgiveness workshop, it’s my gift. Please do share it with your friends.

I Love you and I thank God for you. We bless each other with our willingness to rise in God and come back into our right minds. Together we truly are leaving the crucifixion behind and choosing our resurrection! Hallelujah!

Levels

Saturday, March 31st, 2018

In order to facilitate our own spiritual growth with ease and grace it helps to be aware, really aware, of when we’re resisting moving to the next level of our growth, and then having intention about making that shift.

What are we actually resisting? In my exploration the only thing that’s real is Love, and that’s the only thing to resist. Knowing that is helpful to me because I can make a more conscious and loving choice. That helps break down the resistance, and I can do that all day long by looking for the more loving choices.

It also helps greatly to be aware of what we might be reluctant to step into. In my classes we look at what we must become in order to have the next level of expansion.

In order to have the next level of growth and expansion in your career, what must you become? Perhaps you’re being called to become more organized, or more patient, or more kind.

In your relationships, what does the next level of growth require? Perhaps it requires you to have a greater capacity for intimacy, which means you have to drop the sarcasm and the defensiveness. Perhaps it means that you have to be willing to say how you really feel without blaming anyone for your feelings.

It does feel like there are levels of growth. The more I shed what is false, the more actively those level distinctions are blurring and it feels that I’m becoming more my TRUE Self.

I can remember very well moving through a particular shift where I really was giving up the blaming and resentment, the grudge holding and practicing forgiveness full on. I began to feel markedly more free, and more like my true Self. I was so surprised to find out I really like being my true Self because I’m not what I thought I was.

I used to believe that I was fundamentally bad and wrong, to the core. When I became fully committed to forgiveness, that false view of myself fell away. It was such a relief to let it go. I felt so much lighter on my new “level” of awareness.

What is it that you feel you must become in order to embody the next level of growth you most desire in your life?

The way to get to where we’d like to go is to give the Spirit the heavy lifting of figuring out HOW, instead we declare our spiritual aspiration and intention and we ALLOW ourselves to be guided by Spirit as to the choices that we must make to have the transformation we’re calling forth.

There’s so much we can do to help ourselves and ease our way. We can learn these things. It’s part of the process of remembering to Love ourselves and care deeply for ourselves. We’re so worth it. When we Love ourselves, we’re loving everyone. All boats rise on this tide of Love!

If you feel that you’ve been playing small in any way, I’d love to support you in breaking free of that. If you’re feeling called to do this work with me, please trust that and allow Spirit to provide what is needed so that you can answer the call you’re feeling. We can do this together!

Changing our lives and healing our minds is so much easier when we are the two or more gathered together for the same purpose. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of April.

Attuning to My Prosperous Nature

Wednesday, March 28th, 2018

I used to believe that it’s better to give than to receive. Now, I know that’s crazy ego thinking. Being in tune with the infinite REQUIRES us to be good receivers.

Giving and receiving are really the same. A Course in Miracles says, “To have, give all to all.” Giving isn’t better than receiving it’s part of the same circle.

To be a good receiver, receive. Be receptive. Be receptive to the answered prayer. Believe it or not, this is critical step that many spiritual students neglect because they mistakenly believe it’s better to give than to receive.

The only place there is to receive from is infinite Spirit.
If we’re not receiving from Spirit then we won’t have much to share.
Everything worth having comes from Spirit.
Whether it comes from a person in the world, from the earth or as a thought.

One source.
One supply.

People who withhold Love and kindness often struggle with prosperity, even though it may seem as if they’re abundant. There are many aspects to being prosperous. It’s a good night’s sleep, healthy digestion and elimination. Having a bounce in your step and an easy smile. People can have lots of money and have none of those things.

There’s only one. We’re all connected. If we withhold from One we withhold from all, because all IS one. If we have kindness for some, but not for all, we will feel the effect. Our withholding takes us out of the flow of Love. The flow of Love IS the flow of Prosperity. Love and Prosperity are not separable. They are one.

If we close our heart to Love we close your life to Prosperity and Abundance. We may have wealth, but it won’t be enough and it won’t satisfy. That’s just how life is.

True Abundance and Prosperity comes from knowing our connection in Spirit, with Spirit.

If we seek to punish people with unkindness we will feel the lack and limitation being reflected back to us. What goes around, comes around, and it usually comes with increased energy. Especially now, in this time of instant karma. One way to tell if it’s karma: if it bothers you, it’s life showing us where we have some work to clear our heart. Let’s get to it!! No more delays!! We’ve played small long enough.

I like to look for ways to be more generous with my patience, kindness, and respect and in doing so I discover a greater flow of Prosperity comes with the opening of my heart!

Let’s all be PERFECT givers and receivers of Love. That’s true Prosperity, and it’s ours for the allowing. Now is our time to shine and share! Yes!

Changing our lives and healing our minds is so much easier in community. We are an expanding global spiritual community of prayerful people willing to be co-workers with God. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of April.

Cultivating A Powerful Faith

Monday, March 26th, 2018

Believe it or not, in every moment, we’re each choosing to place our faith and trust in something. Right. Consider, if you’re choosing to get on the highway, you’re placing your trust in Spirit and in the people around you, that you’ll all be safe drives and arrive safely where you’d like to go.

There are really only two choices of what to place our faith and trust in. We’re either placing our faith and trust in Love or in the ego’s interpretation of the past. Yup, those are the two choices.

What I’ve become so grateful for is that, through my willingness to discover the highest and best, most loving choice in the moment, I’ve learned how to train myself to place my trust and faith in Love more and more often. That’s made a huge difference for me every day of my life. In fact, it’s changed my whole life.

When I first began this practice in earnest, I had to work it like a bootcamp.

It felt like a very intense training and it wasn’t easy. In fact, my experience was that it was excruciating. And that’s exactly what motivates me to share what I’ve learned – so that it won’t be as painful for others.

I offer classes in this mind training because it was so difficult for me, and so often I felt so alone in it. I’m so grateful to be holding the space for others to do this work with me, in community so that we can go together on this adventure and rise together in Love.

That’s why I started offering this daily prayer 11 years ago – so that we could be prayer partners and choose the healing together, day in and day out!

In each moment we are learning to train our mind to place our trust and faith in Love. For most of us, it’s not easy. We’re not making the popular choice. It may feel very difficult at times, and it’s always, ALWAYS worth the effort! I’m SO very grateful that we’re doing it together.

Changing our lives and healing our minds is so much easier in community. We are an expanding global spiritual community of prayerful people willing to be co-workers with God. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of April. (If you can’t make this Counseling Training in May, there will be one in October.) We practice and learn Self-Love in Spiritual Community and it’s a powerful healing experience. It’s a living, loving, beautiful expression of Spirit’s Love.

If you feel that you’ve been playing small in any way, I’d love to support you in breaking free of that. If you’re feeling called to do this work with me, please trust that and allow Spirit to provide what is needed so that you can answer the call you’re feeling. We can do this together!

The power of YES!

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

There are MANY times when I have no idea how things will come together. I felt a guidance to go to Australia and Germany, that there were people there I am to be meeting up with and sharing with. How will I get there? Where will the money come from? Who am I to meet? How will I meet them? I don’t know the answers when I start, but I’ve learned to say YES anyway.

My “yes,” and my positive thoughts create an energetic container for Spirit to flow into. After all, my mind is the mind of God and whatever I hold in my awareness is going to appear on the screen of my life.

Often people hesitate to say yes until they know how things will go. They wait to see what will happen. They hesitate because they aren’t sure how it will work out. They want to know the details ahead of time. I get it.

Yet, if we say yes first, then Spirit responds to that commitment. Spirit responds to our willingness to be guided.

Consider, if you were going to offer someone unconditional support, and you made it clear to them that you were there to support them in whatever they chose to pursue, but they didn’t decide to do anything because they weren’t sure how it would unfold. Your unconditional Love, support and resources weren’t enough for them. They had to know HOW everything would happen and what it would LOOK like before they could say yes. So they just kept waiting for that instead of actually moving forward.

That’s what a lot of people do, and I used to do that too. I get it.

I’m so grateful I’m learning to say yes from a place of choosing the highest and best, most loving choice I can find. That YES opens the doors to knowing HOW it will unfold. My YES allows the support to come to me.

Think about it – what am I saying yes to? I’m saying YES to Spirit’s inspiration. It’s not MY idea. It’s Spirit leading me because I’m willing to live in service to the light. Honestly, what difference does it make to me if I’m offering a workshop in Pittsburgh or Paris? Austin or Australia? Location doesn’t matter to me, why would it?

You might think it makes a difference because Paris is so different from Pittsburgh, but let me just say, the location is not what makes an experience beautiful. The Beauty is in the people showing up, the intention, the Love that is expressed and allowed. It’s about being in that perfect flow of giving and receiving Love and location isn’t important.

A few years ago I was invited to Oklahoma City for a weekend of workshops. The weather was grey and rainy. The people bloomed like a garden of the most gorgeous flowers in the world and so did I. The people were beautiful. It was magnificent even though it wasn’t a particularly notable location, no one got dressed up, and it wasn’t a fancy affair.

I had SUCH a good time and met people I now dearly Love and am connected to. Imagine if my YES had been a no because I’d thought, “who wants to go to Oklahoma City in the grey days of November with Thanksgiving right around the corner?” I would have missed so much.

Ego will take us out of the most profound spiritual experiences because we’re waiting to understand the how and why of it.

I encourage you to look within and discover what YES is calling you – be bold – say YES!

Here’s one of the world’s most beloved quotes on boldness and following inspiration:

“Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself,then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.

A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would come his way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe’s couplets:’

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.’”

from The Scottish Himalayan Expedition,1951 – by W.H. Murray

Say yes to your heart’s desire, your strong intuition, and your guidance and allow Spirit to lead, guide and direct you about HOW to find the way to its fulfillment. When you’re willing Spirit leads the way!

Spirit is always saying yes to our answering the call to Love. We are pre-approved! Let’s say yes!

The only thing to say yes to is LOVE because Love is all there is! Sweet!

We are an expanding global spiritual community of prayerful people willing to be co-workers with God. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of April. (If you can’t make this Counseling Training in May, there will be one in October.) We practice and learn Self-Love in Spiritual Community and it’s a powerful healing experience. It’s a living, loving, beautiful expression of Spirit’s Love.

If you feel that you’ve been playing small in any way, I’d love to support you in breaking free of that. If you’re feeling called to do this work with me, please trust that and allow Spirit to provide what is needed so that you can answer the call you’re feeling. We can do this together!

We’re waking up together and finding freedom in our hearts. I’m so grateful for this!

Guidance

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

Do you prefer information or insight? One thing I know about the ego is it’s always seeking to collect more information. Many spiritual students, myself included, can get hung up on collecting information. I’ve learned the hard way that information isn’t healing. Love is healing and only Love is healing. I’ve allowed myself to be so distracted by collecting information that, in the end, was completely useless to me.

It’s important to know what the motivation is – is the motivation to end your suffering? To feel better? To gain something? I’ve learned that none of those things can actually be accomplished by gathering information. There’s no amount of information that has ever been healing to me.

The ego is constantly in search of data to prove someone wrong or right and that is a completely useless pursuit. Spirit already knows everything. OUR Spirit already knows everything. That knowing is our access to True Wisdom. Accessing Divine Wisdom clears the clutter of our mind. Accessing Divine Wisdom is healing – and it’s always available to us!

Here’s the three step process that changes our life: Ask, Listen, Follow.

Ask for guidance.
“Listen” (or sense) the guidance.
Follow the guidance.

All the energy that I used to put into collecting spiritual information, I now invest in “ask, listen, follow” to support my becoming more awake, aware, patient and kind. This is what brings me benefit AND Joy!

Do you find yourself searching for information when you don’t even need it? Is it just a distraction that makes your ego feel “good.” Do you have stacks of books that you never bothered to read and that you feel if you did someday read them they would somehow help you be more spiritual? Don’t believe that line of thinking anymore!

Consider: has collecting information ever improved your life?

Instead of collecting information, get out there and be helpful.

I used to collect books and information, but not anymore – I’ve realized it just doesn’t serve me. It actually weighs me down. Lots of information can be like clutter in the mind. I’m interested in clearing my mind and by focusing on Love I’m able to do that! Phew!

When the ego is driving your spiritual practice it seems like information is helpful, that’s when it’s MOST helpful to put Spirit in charge! That’s what the miracle happens. Healing is ours, when we allow it.

Staying focused on healing and not being distracted by shiny objects is part of our spiritual practice and discipline.

Spirit will discipline our mind for us when we allow ourselves to become a true disciple of the truth.

Today is a really good day to start!

Living A Love Story

Monday, March 19th, 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. That’s what I call, being in the flow of Love.

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 share a gift of Love and have ZERO attachments, and to feel that gift is fully accepted in the way it was intended. When someone is open to receiving the Love we share – that’s the best! 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!

Spirit Has What It Takes!

Saturday, March 17th, 2018

Doesn’t it sometimes seem like a miracle that we can change our minds and stop making a mess of our lives? For a long time I was so AMAZED at the transformation I was experiencing. I had no idea that it was possible for me to change my mind with so much ease and grace. Who knew?

We can all live a miraculous life. We’re entitled to miracles – that’s what it says in A Course in Miracles. We naturally experience what feels like a miraculous flow of Love and support when we align with Love in our hearts and hold ourselves accountable. It can feel surprising and even shocking!

Once we really understand the power of our thinking then we can actively choose to work in the invisible and be effective every day in being truly helpful. What a blessing it is to feel and know that you are truly helpful.

What does working in the invisible mean?

A Course in Miracles and all truth teachings tell us: ALL thought produces form at some level.

  • Form is our experience.
  • Form is what we see and feel and hear.
  • You will see it when you believe it.
  • It is done onto you as you believe, not as you wish.

We’ve all been studying this for so long that we think we know it. For so long I had an INTELLECTUAL understanding, but I didn’t take it down into my heart and live it and so I didn’t actually KNOW it. I knew that I didn’t really know it because every day I gave my self permission to choose unloving thoughts, words and actions and I saw the mess that created.

For so long I labored in vain trying to MAKE things happen by working in the DENSITY of form rather than working in the ease and grace of the invisible. I struggled and worked so hard with just enough success to keep me crawling along, but I wanted to FLY! And my intuition told me it was possible, but HOW? I finally decided to do WHATEVER IT TOOK to live in a beautiful, masterful way and learn how to LIVE spiritual principle rather than just study it.

It might seem that you don’t have what it takes, but that, my friend, is just an opinion. Spirit always has what it takes to be it’s beautiful, powerful Self!

Seek first the kingdom, which is within, and all else will be added unto you! Your little willingness is all that’s required – Let’s PROVE it and deepen our faith NOW. Wow!

Spiritual Community is a powerful healing experience. It’s a living, loving, beautiful expression of Spirit’s Love. We are an expanding global spiritual community of prayerful people willing to be co-workers with God. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of April.

Everything IS For Us!

Friday, March 16th, 2018

Things are changing super fast now. We are so blessed with the constant changing we see in the world. The ego/personality would like to latch onto things and keep them the same. The ego thinks that things were better when …. fill in that blank.

I don’t wish to go back. Not a minute, not a day. There are many a choice I’ve made that I can see were not the most loving, not the most well thought out choices, there have been millions of choices where I could’ve, should’ve, would’ve, if only.

And yet, I’m at the point where I can see that there’s an underlying perfection. A divine order that’s inescapable. A Course in Miracles tells us that God’s will is our will. There is no separate will. Only one life, one mind, one will. And, therefore, there’s noting to fear, because God’s will is always for us.

God’s will is our salvation.

Even if we have deep hidden fears that God is out to get us, we can rise above them and let them dissolve and resolve permanently by choosing to affirm that everything is for us and nothing is against us. I have found this to be very valuable.

When I’m surfing the changing and shifting energies and circumstances, I hold fast to God’s will in my mind and then I feel blessed, no matter what comes.

I’ve been willing to accept that even in the things I think I do not want and would like to avoid, there’s a blessing in there for me. All of life contains a blessing for me. Nothing is against me as long as I’m not against anyone or anything.

I’m for the loving expressions that bring change.
I seek not to change the world, but to change my mind about it.
I let Spirit do the heavy lifting.
And I rely upon the kindness of everyone I encounter to help me keep my balance!

Spiritual Community is a powerful healing experience. It’s a living, loving, beautiful expression of Spirit’s Love. We are an expanding global spiritual community of prayerful people willing to be co-workers with God. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of April.

Finding Freedom Now

Sunday, March 11th, 2018

On Wednesday registration closes for my Finding Freedom class and I’ve got freedom on my mind! The only thing that can ever block our freedom and seem to imprison us on a spiritual level is our agreement to live in limitation. No one is forced to mentally agree to live in limitation. Even if your body is imprisoned, sick, and tortured your mind can still be free. That is your natural state.

History is filled with extraordinary stories of people who were physically imprisoned and who discovered true liberation through their experience. Prison became the pressure that turned their mind of dark coal into a diamond light. Think of Nelson Mandela. He’s told us that his liberation from prison didn’t happen until he was willing to see that violence was not the way and that peace was the only path of true liberation. It took him decades of sitting in prison to bust loose from the prison of his beliefs.

There are so many ways that you can convince yourself that you are not free and will never be free. Yet, no matter how convinced you are it will never, ever be true. Isn’t that wonderful?

To liberate yourself you must decide that you are interested in bustin’ loose from the mental habit of enslavement to the ego. You must choose. No one can liberate you. No thing can liberate you. No company, no government, no spiritual or religious leader, no book, no class. Although you can have amazing and powerful help, only you, yourself, can choose to liberate your mind. The power is within you. It’s always been there and you’ve always known it. For those who have eyes to see it they will find it. The Kingdom is pre-installed. You are pre-approved.

Are you willing to learn the mental discipline of freedom or will you tell yourself it’s too hard and you cannot do it? As soon as you are willing, it will be shown to you and then you can share it with others. What glory that awaits you!

If today you are still feeling focused on thinking you don’t have what it takes, then at least decide how much longer you will pretend you don’t have it. Decide today. How much longer you will enjoy the view from your prison? Set a date for your liberation.

Your activation awaits your choice. It’s really not so far away. Only one choice, one decision. Partner UP. Let the Spirit do the heavy lifting. It works!

This is the truth that sets you free. Eventually you will choose freedom. You decide when.

It’s so much EASIER to learn through Joy than through pain.
It’s so much EASIER to do it when we do it together.

Wanting VS Having

Saturday, March 10th, 2018

I am a big Rolling Stones fan for decades. I’ve followed them on tour, and I’ve seen them so many times over the years. I always loved the song You Can’t Always Get What You Want and now I have a whole new understanding of that phrase. I love the song, but not the wanting!

If you’re interested in manifesting a life with more ease, grace, Love, fun, Freedom, Prosperity and Abundance, then let me just say, it is SO much easier than you can imagine. TRULY!

A Course in Miracles tells us, “ALL healing is at the level of the mind.” And that reminds us that it’s an inside job. Our healing is never dependent on what’s happening int he world. Never! So, let’s get on with our healing!

#1 – when we affirm that we want or need something, we’re actually affirming that we don’t have it and we’re pushing it away on an energetic level. I encourage you to release the words WANT and NEED from your usage. Rock your healing!

Yes, it’s true, you can’t always get what you want. And giving up wanting for having makes life far more enjoyable.

#2 – Usually most people who experience lack think of what they want, and then feel bummed out because they don’t have it. Hence, the experience of lack. The feeling of lack comes from affirming lack and blocks their receiving it. Additionally by affirming a belief that they can’t have it, they don’t deserve it, or that it’s hard to get, it begins to feel further and further away.

I use this phrase: I’d like to have…

And then I let it rest in the mind of the infinite. Intentionally, I don’t start figuring out how to get it. I allow what is my highest and best to come to me or for me to be led to it. It’s actually an incredibly simple practice! Try it, you’ll like it! It’s effective AND it’s easy. You won’t believe it until you start to REALLY practice it. When you do begin to really practice it you’ll start to realize just HOW TEMPTING it is to cancel out your desire with thoughts of lack and limitation. Be mindful!

I can’t tell you how many people will defend their lack and limitation. I share what I’ve learned and they immediately jump in with “yes, but you don’t understand my situation …” Then they explain how the world of effects is organized to defeat their abundance.

The world of effects is a projection of our thoughts and beliefs. How can the world possibly be the cause of ANYTHING?

Realizations like this one are the DIRECT result of spiritual practice. That’s why my offerings are all about clearing out the hidden negative habits and applying the practical tips and tools that really make a difference in the quality of our lives.

Higher Calling

Friday, March 9th, 2018

With each passing day I’m more and more clear that what I feel called to do is to support the folks who feel called to share this message of Love. For so long I didn’t feel qualified, and yet I felt called.

For a long time I studied spiritual principles and learned so much, but the learning wasn’t helping me as much as I felt it should. I discovered how to bridge the gap of feeling unqualified and now, there’s nothing I’d rather do than help those who feel called find their inner-qualifications.

When we feel called from the heart, there’s a burning desire to share and reach out to others. It’s Spirit IN us. We are IN-spired. In Spirit. And from there, we will be given what we need.

In class yesterday, I led a visioning that was so powerful. It was abundantly clear that we each have a higher calling that is unique.

A Course in Miracles tells us that our script is already written and that there are many different possibilities in our script and with every choice we make we open different areas of the script. We can open higher possibilities in our script than we are currently experiencing. We really can “go for it.”

Let’s give Spirit the heavy lifting of figuring out how – our job really is to be willing and to allow.

There’s so much more healing for us to experience and we’re right on the edge of it NOW.

Will you hold a higher vision for your life? Will you let Spirit show you how?

I would like to share with everyone how much more is possible for each of us – and by more, I mean more Peace, more Love, and more TRUE JOY!

I’m so glad we’re doing it together because I love the company!

FREE CLASS AVAILABLE NOW: Now is the time for us to truly LIVE these teachings of A Course in Miracles and that’s why I’m feeling called to offer this free class I just recorded. My topic is Living A Course in Miracles. This is a free class so anyone can join – and I’ll be offering some live-coaching

The End of Lack

Thursday, March 8th, 2018

The most basic principles of the teachings of Jesus have transformed my life because I applied them. Studying them didn’t really help me. In fact, much of the time, because of my studies, I actually felt badly about myself because I judged myself as failing at what I was learning.

I would try to comfort myself with telling myself that I was doing so much by studying the teachings, but I knew in my heart that it wasn’t true.

For a long time, I thought that living in alignment with principle would be so hard that I couldn’t do it. I also had the belief that if I lived in alignment with principle I’d have to give up everything that gave me relief from my suffering. Neither of these beliefs was true.

I’ve learned that if the thought doesn’t make me happy, it’s probably not true and therefore I don’t need it anymore.

It took courage for me to have faith and place my trust in Spirit that if I gave up the things that I thought I liked and the things that I thought I needed, I would actually be happier. In the process I learned that I didn’t really have to give them up, but I did have to give up my attachment – I had to give up the needing, the wanting and the craving.

Needing, wanting and craving is all a sign of feeling disconnected from Spirit. The disconnect is intensified when we worship false idols.

Our bodies can be false idols.
Our loved ones can be false idols.
Our jobs can be false idols.

Where there is needing, wanting and craving, there are false gods and idols.

We can give the cravings to Spirit for healing.
We can discover that we’re whole and lacking and nothing, but we must actively choose it. That’s our willingness. That’s the way – willingness is the way!

With our active decision to be willing, and our choice to give up needing, wanting, craving, we find ourselves moving into a period of true prosperity. We discover the end of lack.

Life is amazing. Our healing is at hand. Let’s choose it and go together, NOW!

(If you can’t make this Counseling Training in May, there will be one in October.)

If you feel that you’ve been playing small in any way, I’d love to support you in breaking free of that. If you’re feeling called to do this work with me, please trust that and allow Spirit to provide what is needed so that you can answer the call you’re feeling. We can do this together!

We’re waking up together and finding freedom in our hearts. I’m so grateful for this!

Your Communication Link with God

Tuesday, March 6th, 2018

A Course in Miracles tells us that we have a Communication Link with God and yet one of the most frequently asked questions I get is: How can I improve my intuition?

Let us consider what our intuition actually is. I love to look at Webster’s dictionary and see what they say. Their official definition is:

1. quick and ready insight
2. a: immediate apprehension or cognition
    b: knowledge or conviction gained by intuition
    c: the power or faculty of attaining to direct knowledge or cognition without evident rational thought and inference

Our intuitive insights come from our relationship with our Higher Holy Spirit Self, our TRUE Self. It’s a divine dialogue, or conversation that is instantaneous and it doesn’t take time.

Like prayer itself, intuition isn’t governed by time and space. Intuition is our own “direct knowledge.” And that knowledge is profoundly helpful. It SAVES time and it averts suffering when we listen and follow.

No matter how often we choose NOT to listen and follow, we are never judged or punished. How amazing and cool is that?

Spirit doesn’t punish, because it doesn’t judge.

ACIM tells us in the 11th Miracle Principle, “Prayer is the medium of miracles. It is a means of communication of the created with the Creator. Through prayer love is received, and through miracles love is expressed.

Now is the time for us to truly LIVE these teachings of A Course in Miracles and that’s why I’m feeling called to offer a free class this Thursday, March 8th. My topic is Living A Course in Miracles. This is a free class so anyone can join – and I’ll be taking questions.

My intention is to inspire you to take your practice deeper. I’ll also be talking about ways that you can do that with me. I’ll preview my Finding Freedom Spiritual Bootcamp class where we focus on truly living ACIM and we join together to bring on miraculous breakthroughs. The next Finding Freedom Spiritual Bootcamp begins on March 14th. I’ve added some new things for you to check out! It’s truly better than ever.

Now is the time for us to fly. My Finding Freedom Spiritual Bootcamp is a way to get into a powerful spiritual community of like-minded souls who are committed to doing this healing work together NOW. Click here to register for my free Living A Course in Miracles and learn more.

Spiritual Community is a powerful healing experience. It’s a living, loving, beautiful expression of Spirit’s Love. We are an expanding global spiritual community of prayerful people willing to be co-workers with God. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of April.

If you feel that you’ve been playing small in any way, I’d love to support you in breaking free of that. If you’re feeling called to do this work with me, please trust that and allow Spirit to provide what is needed so that you can answer the call you’re feeling.
