Are You A People Pleaser?

Friday, September 15th, 2017

Are you a people pleaser?  Or maybe you know someone who is?

Sometimes, we do things to please people, and to make or keep them happy so that we can improve our relationships – and all it does is backfire on us.  Sheesh!

Why does people pleasing backfire on us?

Because it’s a form of manipulation.
People pleasing is actually what I call, “giving to get.”

Whenever we’re giving to get in our relationships then we’re trying to control and manipulate someone. Is that loving? I hope you said, “NO!”

Do you know anyone who is actively interested in finding a partner who would like to be controlled and manipulated in exchange for affection and care? Isn’t that complete and total co-dependency?

Giving to get blocks the flow of Love.
Giving to get is an illusion within the illusion – it’s an illusion of Love, but it’s not Love.
Can we experience real Love when we’re focused on creating an illusion of Love?  Not so much.

If you’ve been giving to get, and enegaging in manipulation, and you feel guilty and ashamed of it, there’s an immediate solution that’s deeply healing.  It’s called forgiveness.

If you’d like help with self-forgiveness, sign up for my How to Get Over It free workshop.  It’s available for you to download or listen to online right now.  Did I mention that it’s free?

Real Love is about being Real. There’s no manipulation needed. It’s a deep practice.  It’s profoundly transformational and healing. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll be so grateful you decided to get REAL!

Love It or Leave It

Monday, September 4th, 2017

Yesterday, I spent the entire day cleaning our family home on Deer Isle, Maine.  I had some wonderful helpers, but it still took me all day.  This past week was a week with lots of laundry, cleaning, and gardening, taking care of things at the house before leaving so the renters could enjoy it.

Our family has loved this house my parents built 30 years ago.  We’ve had summer vacations every year since it was built, even before when my parents just had a trailer there.  In order for us to be able to afford to keep it, we rent it most of the summer.  And now we’re renting it for artist and writer retreats year round.  It’s the perfect place for that.

As I’m reviewing my day yesterday, where I was cleaning for about eight hours straight, and after many days of cleaning and organizing, what stands out to me is this:

I don’t like cleaning.  Some people do, but I don’t.  However, I do like having a really clean house.  And so, I did all of that cleaning, and I had no complaints, and no resentments.  I was grateful much of the time and I was happy.

It might not seem like much, but upon review, it’s miraculous!

It’s truly miraculous that I could have spent so many hours this past week cleaning and doing things I don’t enjoy and not be complaining.

I used to be a real whiner and complainer, I kid you not.  My mind was trained to be super critical ALL of the time.  My constant complaining was the cause of great suffering for me and it cost me several relationships.

There are times that when I’m doing something I don’t like, I feel frustrated that there’s an impasse.  The thing breaks, the thing won’t open or close, the thing is thwarting me!  I feel a momentary annoyance, or even a flash of anger, at the thing that is not behaving as I wish.  And then I stop, and I take a breath and I remember that this thing has come to help me to remember that I can choose Peace instead of upset.  I am the one who chooses.  I am the decider and I decide for Peace because I love myself, and I am creating a magnificent life for myself.

If I cannot do it with Love, it’s best to leave it.

Truly, this is what I’ve learned.  If I’m continuing to do something and I’m stewing in my upset, escalating the agitation, that is intensely unloving and I don’t deserve that. I wouldn’t let someone else do it TO me so I won’t do it to myself.

Love it or leave it, I say.
Do it with Love and gratitude or let it go.
This is the way to learn and grow.
This is the way to remember my true identity IS Peace.

I can harvest the Wisdom from what I experienced because I don’t judge myself, and that’s what true forgiveness is, letting go of the judgments.  Without the judgment, I am able to learn from my experiences.  Judgment just keeps me repeating the past.

Every day, I am grateful that I can change my mind.  I celebrate my ability to change and let the past go!  Victory is mine!

There was a time when I thought the ego would always win, but that time has gone and is no more.  Victory is mine!

I invite you, today and every day, to never labor in vain.  When we’re laboring with agitation and frustration then we’re laboring in vain.  It’s only going to bring more suffering.  It’s healthier to take a step back, align with Spirit and be victorious.

If you do that once per day, with something you don’t like, your entire life will change.  Believe me, I know.  Try it and feel the difference, and then together, we can say:  Victory is ours!

Invest in Multiplying the Good!

Saturday, September 2nd, 2017

I’ve written the last few days of Spiritual Espresso on the topic of punishment.  The first one in this series, You Are Not Punished was about people who are suffering begin to mistakenly believe that God is punishing them.

I feel it’s extremely valuable for us to look into this concept of punishment as well as its application.  I have been an aggressive grudge holder who could be very punishing and I’ve learned a lot about how to ruin my life through punishment.  I don’t recommend it.

Instead, I recommend that we look deeply into the matter with the strong intention to rid the world of the belief in the value of punishment.  I mean that quite seriously.  Let’s aspire to take all humanity higher.

The energy that it takes to inflict punishment towards the Self or someone else is tremendous.  It requires a full denial of the Spirit.  And it produces an energetic hangover that is also a big energy drain to recover from.

I invite you to consider how much of the energy that you have to live a great life, have spiritual success, career momentum and Creativity, to be in intimate, healing and fulfilling relationships, to be joyful and have fun, you might be investing in punishing yourself or other people for a variety of reasons.  Wouldn’t you really rather be able to invest that energy in something you’d enjoy?

Wouldn’t you really rather take your investment out of a losing proposition and invest it in one that brings Abundance and Prosperity, multiplying the good?

It can seem SO difficult to break an entrenched pattern, but not to the Higher Holy Spirit Self.  To Spirit, it’s a piece of cake, because the pattern is false and nothing true supports it, therefore it’s nothing with no power.  God is the only power and when we invest our awareness and attention, our heart and our belief in it, then it appears to be something.  There’s only one power and that’s Love.  When we, who are Love, invest in something false, it appears to be real because we’re given it our power.

Let’s take our power back from punishing and invest it in praising, loving, and being generous of heart.  We can do this.  How do I know we can do it?  Because we’re designed for it.  This is what we’re intended for.  Of course, we can do what we’re designed for.

Let’s decide today is the day we withdraw the invest of time, energy and attention in valuing punishment and re-invest all of it in loving instead.  We can be spiritual heroes.  Today’s the day to have it our way!

Passive-Aggressive Pain

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

Part 1 of 4 – (You are here) Passive-Aggressive Pain
Part 2 of 4 – Eliminating Passive-Aggressive Pain
Part 3 of 4 – Rising Above Passive-Aggressive Patterns
Part 4 of 4 – Love and Gratitude

One of my least favorite relationship challenge is the passive-aggressive behavior.  I dislike it so much because I became a master of it and I know all too well how much pain I caused myself engaging in it.

What is it and how to recognize it:

  • When you say nice things and use nice words, but you’re actually wishing to irritate, frustrate, confuse or invalidate;
  • When you’re avoiding being direct and saying things are “fine” when they’re not, and then taking your upset out out on others;
  • Saying it doesn’t matter to you, when it really does and then holding it against them;
  • Not being clear, and thinking that it’s the other person’s job to be a detective and figure out what you’re really thinking and feeling;
  • Anytime you’re trying to manipulate someone;
  • Pretending to be really helpful when you’re actually not helpful at all;
  • Pretending to care when you don’t; and
  • Withholding approval, Love, and affection.

Here are some things that can be passive-aggressive – depending upon the underlying reason for the behavior:

  • Sullenness
  • Procrastination
  • Deliberate repeated failure to do what’s agreed to or what one’s been asked to do

What many people don’t wish to look at and be aware of is that all passive-aggressive behavior is a sign of anger.  It’s a sign of great frustration and feeling powerless.

Underneath the anger is usually fear, and the fear is often related to having been hurt in the past and feeling afraid that the past is repeating.  The anger is the symptom of the old, unhealed wound.  The anger is actually a protective device.

When the anger is expressed as passive-aggressive, it’s a sure sign the person feels disempowered and feels unable/unwilling to be direct.

This can be intensely frustrating to others because there’s no hope of resolution.   Passive-aggressive behavior that is allowed to continue becomes like an infestation of termites that spreads and spreads until it ruins the relationship and makes uninhabitable.

Most people engage in some forms of passive-aggressive behavior.  And so, it’s a great act of service to be compassionate, loving, and direct.  It takes tremendous willingness to turn the relationship over to Spirit and to stand in each moment and look for the loving choices.

This is what we’re called to do now.  We’re all being strongly called to get our relationships, our houses, and our lives in order.  Top to bottom.

In case you haven’t noticed, the call to complete Love is going to keep getting stronger.  There’s less and less room for hiding, avoiding, and delaying.  Our time is now.

Tomorrow, I’ll write more about how I’ve learned to overcome this passive-aggressive pain in my life.  I love you and we can do this together!

No Longer Waiting

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

My beautiful friend, Laurie Schur is a poet, filmmaker, therapist, and all-round beautiful woman and she often shares wonderful and inspiring things with me like this poem.

Life at Midlife

I am no longer waiting for a special occasion; I burn the best candles on ordinary days.

I am no longer waiting for the house to be clean; I fill it with people who understand that even dust is Sacred.

I am no longer waiting for everyone to understand me; it’s just not their task.

I am no longer waiting for the perfect children; my children have their own names that burn as brightly as any star.

I am no longer waiting for the other shoe to drop; It already did, and I survived.

I am no longer waiting for the time to be right; the time is always now.

I am no longer waiting for the mate who will complete me; I am grateful to be so warmly, tenderly held.

I am no longer waiting for a quiet moment; my heart can be stilled whenever it is called.

I am no longer waiting for the world to be at peace; I unclench my grasp and breathe peace in and out.

I am no longer waiting to do something great; being awake to carry my grain of sand is enough.

I am no longer waiting to be recognized; I know that I dance in a holy circle.

I am no longer waiting for Forgiveness.

I believe, I Believe.

Mary Anne Perrone

In reading this beautiful poem, I’m so clear that I, too, am no longer waiting for things that I used to wait for when I was a younger woman.

I like to use the good china even if it’s just me.  I’m not waiting for a special occasion.  I can tell people I love them, without an excuse.   I love you.

I am grateful!

I am choosing to remember that I’m already as holy as holy can be and I’m not waiting to get there!  I am choosing to realize that I am already free and to go there in my mind – no more waiting!

Bridge

Saturday, July 1st, 2017

One of the most beautiful aspects of life is that we’re not alone. We’re interconnected and interdependent. Whether we like it or not. Without a cooperative effort, much of life would be unbearable, and yet there are many times when I’ve felt momentarily resistant to being cooperative.

One of the primary ways I’ve experienced the ego identification was when I’ve felt that belligerence rise up within me and I’ve refused to cooperate. When I was younger, I felt it all the time. That haughty, resistant, argumentative attitude was one of the ways that I would reclaim my power when I felt a lack of power.  I’d try to regain my power  Now, I know better.

Opening my heart to collaboration and cooperation is my power! When we work together, we are so much stronger than when we work alone. Working together we can form a collective intelligence that is far greater and more powerful than anything I could create alone. It can also be far more satisfying.

Now, I prefer to be a bridge builder and a collaborator. The blessings are enormous and I am grateful every day!

A powerful daily spiritual practice is to find one significant way that you can cooperate more effectively with the people in your family, your workplace, school, or community.

By being willing to cooperate, I build a bridge. As I walk across the bridge, I bring with me an offering of my heart. By a simple act such as this I make the world a more peaceful place and that’s being truly helpful.  It’s not so hard to fulfill your purpose when you know your purpose is simply to Love and be loved.

I feel so uplifted from our recent Living A Course in Miracles series of 11 free classes. I got to share so much about the expansion into Wisdom that’s unfolding for all of us. Sharing is so sweet! – the replays, downloads, and transcripts are all free and available to listen to right now.  I’ve had so many e-mails from people telling me that they are really shifting their thinking and feeling so inspired and uplifted! YES!  Perfect for a long holiday weekend!

True or False

Saturday, June 17th, 2017

Have you ever been a fake friend? I have. I can remember that I used to pretend to be friends with people I really didn’t care about. Now, as I look back, I wonder what was that really all about?

I lived with a lot of SHOULDS hanging over me. In fact, my life was mostly shoulds. I was often telling myself:

“You should do this.
You shouldn’t do that.”

Should, should, shoulding all over myself and everyone else.

That’s what the judging mind does.
Should is a kind of attack thought.

Wishing it were different, thinking that it SHOULD be different is a major pre-occupation of the ego.  When there’s a “should,” there’s a judgment.

Thinking that I SHOULD be friends with someone led me to collect some fake friends. Fake friends were people I felt obligated to hang out with, but that I actually had zero real interest in. How crazy is that? They had some kind of connection I wanted to something I thought I needed. I was willing to invest huge amounts of time, energy, effort and money into maintaining fake friendships.

I remember feeling that there was some “rule” about how often to get together. There was a rule about how often to call each other. I made sure I was operating within the rules so that no one could label me as bad or wrong. It was all about how people perceived me, what I projected and my own self-perception. I had already labeled myself as bad and wrong, and so I wanted to avoid anyone else adding to my pain.

The more I opened my spiritual practice to include my whole life, the more those fake friends fell away. Obligations fell away. I gave myself permission to choose from Love and that transformed everything. Spiritual practice really IS the great healer.

People know when you’re not really with them in your heart. Why behave in a false way? It makes for an empty life.  Doesn’t it just reinforce lack, fear, the value of appearances? Let us all be wholeheartedly available to LOVE fully and completely in each moment.  That’s what we’re designed for – and that’s why it feels so good when we have the courage to live that way.

It’s never too late to start over. Give the Higher Holy Spirit Self the heavy lifting and relax into the healing! Be a TRUE friend to your Self – your Higher Self and let the false friendships be healed!

Working for God, Inc.

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

As a Minister, I am employed by God, Incorporated. I am a Marketing Executive for Divine Love. I was offered the job a long time ago, but I turned it down. I could see that it was a great job opportunity – I’d get to travel around the world, meet all kinds of people, share many beautiful experiences, but I didn’t feel qualified.

God kept offering me an all-expenses-paid position, but I kept saying, “I’m not there yet. I’m not perfect enough to be all that.”

Glancing at the surface, I thought I knew what the job would be so I didn’t bother to look at the brochure. I just kept saying, “No,” usually followed by, “Get OFF me! What part of NO don’t you understand?”

Back then, my life was my message. And my message was: “I only glance at the surface. I don’t want to look deeply. Leave me alone.” My life resembled one of my favorite movies: It’s A Wonderful Life with Jimmy Stewart. My life was like the nightmare part of that story where George was about to kill himself. Confusion, fear and desperation, those were my messages.

I remember standing on the edge of a New York subway platform as the train came into the station. I was having a, “George Bailey on the bridge,” moment. There was no Angel jumping on the tracks for me to save, but somehow that moment brought surrender.

I so clearly didn’t know what I was doing with my life. I had to surrender.

I surrendered the suffering. I surrendered self-loathing and God took it all from me. I finally had the faith and trust to change my life.  Eventually, I realized that my happiness would come from having faith and trust, and choosing to be of service with my whole life.

In that moment, the message of my life began to change. Thank you, God, for leading me to that New York Subway Train. My Freedom train.

What is the message of YOUR life?

Earth & Prosperity

Monday, June 5th, 2017

Yesterday, I was  gardening and trimming the branches on an overgrown bush in the yard at my family’s home on Deer Isle, Maine.  I heard something moving inside the bush and thought it might be a small animal and then I saw a bird fly away.  I knew immediately there must be a nest and I stopped trimming.  I looked inside the middle of the bush and saw this tiny nest, which could easily fit in my hand.

Nature comes in so many forms, and some of them are challenging.  I see a deer in the yard and I also see that they’ve eaten a lot of the things in the garden.  They eat the buds off the flowering trees.  They have stripped bare some of the flowering bushes.

Yesterday, I saw a raccoon ambling through the yard.  There’s a lot of nature here and some of it can seem destructive at times.  Have you ever seen what raccoons can do to your trash?  What about floods and fires and hurricanes?

And still, I don’t find fault with any of them, they’re just doing what they naturally do.  Animals look for food and eat the best thing they can find.  I can relate!

While I don’t find fault with the animals, I still feel it’s my responsibility to honor and cherish nature.  When I lived in England, I captured and released several spiders a day.

The earth is an amazing treasure.  We’re so blessed to live on such a beautiful planet.  Our ability to live here and enjoy all the beautiful aspects of this life here, is a great demonstration of prosperity.  I feel SO grateful and so blessed.

Prosperity isn’t just wealth and Abundance.  Prosperity is being able to have a good life, a sense of well-being, a good night’s sleep, healthy digestion and elimination, and clear thinking.  I cannot imagine that it would be possible to FEEL prosperous and not honor Mother Earth.

My sense is that those who don’t appreciate the earth, and all she gives us, will feel less than prosperous, because they’re not grateful for what they have.  Gratitude multiplies the good through acknowledging it.

I, myself, am an avid and seemingly compulsive recycler.  Recycling is SO important to me as part of my practice of being grateful for what I have.  By recycling, I am honoring Mother Earth’s bounty and generosity.

Being in nature, I feel restored.  I feel grateful.  I can feel and see the blessings all around me.  God is so very good and we are blessed.

Healing from Relationship Hell

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

Forgiveness is the only tool I know of for opening the door to a life that is happy, prosperous, healthy and harmonious.  I’ve been teaching forgiveness workshops and classes since 2000, and I have been consistently amazed at the miraculous stories people have told me, and, of course, my own miraculous healing experiences.

When emotions take us over like this, even minor frustration or irritation, it’s coming up in our awareness so that we will choose healing rather than stuff it back down again.  When people keep stuffing it back down time and again, that’s when they either implode or explode.  We all already know that, don’t we?  It really makes life a lot harder to enjoy.  So, why don’t we stop doing it?

It’s because we don’t actually like to forgive.

We’d like the Freedom and Peace of mind that forgiveness brings, but without having to actually forgive.

The resentments, regrets, guilt, blame, shame, and everything feels like self-betrayal, or betrayal by others, is like a black sticky tar that we apply to ourselves and our lives.  And then we take it into our relationships to try to have a healing, but sometimes, we’re just not willing and we take that beautiful relationship and turn it into a big stinking mess.

Have you ever tried to remove tar from your clothes or skin?  Not a fun job.

A lot of people say they’d like to forgive, but they don’t actually mean it.  What they really mean is, “I’d like to be free of this pain and hold onto my judgments about what happened.”  That’s not forgiveness.

Forgiveness really means that you Love yourself enough to let go of the past and be present in the moment.  It’s so completely life-changing – it opens the door to Prosperity, physical, mental and emotional healing, and, of course, spiritual awakening.

In the end, there’s not one resentment that we can hold onto AND awaken.  Our resentments are like a heavy weight that keeps us from rising in Love.  Relationships are our best help in healing.  And that’s why I am dedicated to supporting anyone who is willing to get out of relationship hell.

Memorial Day

Monday, May 29th, 2017

Contemplating Memorial Day and celebrating the lives of the men and women who gave their lives in service to the U.S., I haven’t had any immediate family member who was killed in service.  I’m grateful for that, and I wish it were true for everyone.

I’d like to live in a world where no on dies fighting for or against anything, because there’s no fight to the death for any reason at all.  I believe we’re headed in that direction, and my life is dedicated to the achievement of Peace on earth.

Each day, I consciously choose to let go of the thoughts and beliefs that cause me pain.  I am consistently, more and more without upset and I am profoundly grateful for that.  The Peace I have now I never imagined I could achieve.

I feel that the greatest thing I can do to honor the lives of those who gave their lives in service, is to truly live a life of Love and to Love my life as an American.  I greatly appreciate the rights that I have as a citizen of this country.

May Peace prevail on earth.  For all the families that have had a loved one give their life in service to this country, I share this prayer from Alice Bailey:

The Great Invocation:

Let Light and Love and Power Restore the Plan on Earth.

From the point of Light within the Mind of God.

Let light stream forth into the minds of men.

Let Light descend on Earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of God,

Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.

May Christ return to Earth.

From the centre where the Will of God is known.

Let purpose guide the little wills of men,

the purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the centre which we call the race of men.

Let the Plan of Love and Light work out.

And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

Love Is What We Are

Sunday, May 28th, 2017

Yesterday in my Living A Course in Miracles series of classes our class topic was Speed Up Your Healing. This is a topic that everyone can relate to, because who among us wishes to draw things out?

There’s SO MUCH possibility for healing for each and every one of us if we’re willing to open our minds and “come out from among them.” We live in a world where there are so many intense thought patterns around what we should and shouldn’t do for healing with the body, our life, and our relationships.

Love is the healer in all cases because Love is what we are.  People who are so completely loving with their children, their animals and others in their lives are sometimes actively UN-loving with themselves in the treatment of themselves.

One of the most common forms of psychological dysfunction people experience shows up in abuse and neglect of the body temple.  And then that triggers a whole litany of painful self-judgment.  We can speed up our healing and move out of that pattern.

We get such mixed messages in this world and that is why in order to heal our mind about the world we must realize that we are in the world, but not OF this world. We have a body, but we are not our bodies.

As I was sharing in my class yesterday, A Course in Miracles tells us that the body is a temple. And we are the altar. The temple is a shell, let us not worship or idolize the body temple. Let us acknowledge the altar that is within. Seek first the kingdom, which is within, and all else will be added unto you.

Are you willing to look at your thoughts and behaviors around the body and learn to be more self-loving by honoring the temple? How we hold the body in our mind is so helpful to our healing if we choose to view it that way.

Myself, I’m not interested in perpetuating the mental and emotional anguish that comes from making the physical body a false idol. I know that my body is a teaching – learning tool and I am choosing that path of learning for my awakening.

It takes great willingness to be vigilant over these crazy body thoughts, opinions, and judgments. I’m willing! Let’s do it together!

I AM willing to Love myself free of all limiting beliefs!

Keep Calm and Be Loving

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

One of the things I’ve noticed in my life about many people is we often get upset when people we care about are upset.  Sometimes, we get upset when anyone around or near us is upset.

Have you ever  made someone you love feel badly because you were upset with their being upset?  Sounds crazy, but it’s very common.

When someone we love is upset, we can actually make them wrong or bad, guilty or ashamed for being upset. Just because we feel threatened and we don’t like it.  That’s intense and it’s a way for us to really shift and become more loving.

One of the great things we can learn to do is to keep calm in challenging situations.  It’s not about denying how we feel.  For me, staying calm is about having trust and faith that everything works together for good and there are no exceptions.  So, even someone being upset can be for everyone’s good if we’re willing to allow Spirit to show us how that can be.

Cultivating the skill of staying loving ,even when things are upsetting, is a wonderful ability to have.  It really is life-changing.  It’s transformative because it’s loving, and Love is transformative!

Pay attention next time someone you Love is upset – and see if you make them wrong or offer compassion.  Then see how you do when someone you don’t Love is upset!  Can you have just as much compassion?

This Living A Course in Miracles series is devoted to clearing the way to hear intuition, insight, Divine Guidance, and inspiration more clearly than ever before.  It’s the VERY best gift we can give to ourselves.  And it requires that we give up the judgments that block our intuition.  This is the practice that allows us to expand into a life of perfect Love!

TODAY:  Living A Course in Miracles classes are completely free.  We have 9 classes already recorded and 2 to go this week, including today’s homework class. My topic is Following Divine Guidance!   Click here to listen now!

Grace Is Ours

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

I was inspired by Miranda Macpherson’s class in Living A Course in Miracles yesterday.  She had so much to share that was truly helpful about how to open our hearts to Love and move beyond the fear, hurt and worry.

One word she used frequently was Grace.  I am reminded of ACIM Workbook Lesson 131 that ends with, “No one can fail who seeks to reach the truth.”  Which is a beautiful example of Perfect Grace.

We cannot fail, as long as we’re seeking to reach the truth.

In my experience, when I’m not seeking to reach the truth, recognize the truth, know the truth, then I’m failing at fulfilling my function in this world.  My function is to be the Light of the world and to illuminate the truth.

So much is given us when we’re willing.  It’s extraordinary how much our life opens up when we’re truly willing, and that’s what Miranda and I were talking about yesterday.

The Grace of God is that there’s nothing to forgive, so we can forgive by simply releasing our attachment to the meaning we made of things – even opinions and judgments that are left over from a previous incarnation and seem to be our “negative karma,” even that we can hand over to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing.  And, as it says in ACIM at the end of the Text, Chapter 5, “All the consequences of our wrong decisions will be healed.”  What could be a more clear example of God’s Infinite Grace?

We are so blessed!  Let us receive our blessings this day and partner UP with the Holy Spirit to release all the past!

I am supremely grateful for yesterday’s class at Living A Course in Miracles and another one today!  People are letting me know that this series has been a great blessing to them.  We’re on fire with a desire to live a life of JOY!  Check it out and please share with friends!

TODAY:  Living A Course in Miracles classes are completely free.  We have 6 classes already recorded and 5 to go this week including today’s homework class – my topic is Expanding into Love!   Click here to listen now!

Surrender & Faith

Friday, May 19th, 2017

I am fully committed to being loving, which I can only do by relinquishing the ego’s petty concerns in exchange for the highest and most loving choice that I can find in the moment.

Any walk to know myself AS God and to live God more fully is a walk of surrender. What does surrender mean? It means giving up my opinion in order to make way for God’s healing, loving Truth. Any time I think I know how it SHOULD go or how things SHOULD be, any should at all, is a call for me to  surrender – quickly.

“When Jesus said you have to lose your life to find it, He was saying: You have to lose your hate if you wish to find love … you even have to surrender fear if you wish to discover faith.” Earnest Holmes, Living The Science of Mind

I used to find myself pushing and pushing before I’d remember to turn it over to God. Sometimes, I can feel attached to being right. In the need to be right, it’s easy to lose sight of the intention to be loving and compassionate. Time to surrender, Dorothy!  We don’t surrender to the ego (wicked witch), we surrender to the miracle of Love!

Many times in the past, I’ve been challenged with trying to be a place of Love when I was really in a place of deep and intense judgment. The judgment was the cause of my feelings of fear, but I didn’t know it. In those moments of fear and judgment, I discovered the practice of surrendering to God.

I know that God is Love and God loves all as itself. At times, when I do not feel loving, I surrender to God and let God love through me and as me. I’ve learned the power of relinquishing any attachment to my opinion and hold firm to my aspiration to be loving. God moves through me. It doesn’t mean that I have to like the person or their actions, but God can still love through me. My vibration shifts as the judgment dissolves and Love becomes the focus. I become a place for healing. The Christ Consciousness is awake in me. This is the power of surrender.

Every moment of every day is a powerful opportunity for me to live with a deep intention to surrender even more fully to living this life in God and as God, and to seeing God in everyone and every thing. In this way, I am blessed and I AM a blessing wherever I go, whatever I do.  And for this, I AM grateful!

I am also supremely grateful for this week’s classes at Living A Course in Miracles.  People are letting me know that this series has been a great blessing to them.  We’re on fire with a desire to live a life of JOY!  Check it out and please share with friends!

Happy Birthday Mom!

Friday, April 7th, 2017

Today is my mother’s birthday and I’m thinking of her with such gratitude.  My mother made her transition in 2008.  She was part of the generation that brought us the women’s movement of the 60’s and beyond and I can remember talking with her about women’s rights when I was a teenager.

The world I lived in was so different from her upbringing and I took it for granted.  She literally marched in the streets for women’s rights.  My mother  had a consciousness raising group.  She worked for decades as a teacher, and an administrator to improve the lives of children and their families.  She helped so many people to improve the quality of their lives and families.

I am grateful for my mother’s example of service.  Over and over again she found ways to be of service to the people in her community who were challenged with feeding, educating, and raising their children.  She was an active part of the civil rights movement.  She worked to help families who were challenged with domestic abuse.  Again and again, she found ways to help others.

In part, because of my parent’s and the contributions they’ve made to their communities, I cannot even imagine not being of service.  Being of service in community is one of the most rewarding things I know of.

One way that I honor my precious Mother, Gayle Hadley, is to be her living legacy of service and inspiration.  I give thanks for my mother’s beautiful example of contributing to community and bringing more light into this world!

Manipulation for Power

Thursday, April 6th, 2017

I used to believe that it was OK to manipulate people with my moods and attitudes. I grew up thinking that having an attitude, or getting into a mood, was a way to effectively control and manipulate people to have them pay attention to me and do what I wanted.  When I felt powerless, I’d find some way to feel more powerful.  At the very least, I used to think, I can push people’s buttons and agitate them.  It was the misuse of “power.”

I learned that if I was angry, people would try to appease me.

I learned that if I was cold and distant people, would inquire what was wrong and try to help me.
I learned that if I was sad, people might comfort me.
Mostly I learned that manipulating people made me feel sick energetically.

In all of my relationships, I found that others were manipulating me as much as I was manipulating them. It all felt SUPER uncomfortable, but that’s just the way it was. Everybody did it.

As I began to achieve some spiritual maturity, I realized that manipulating others, for any reason or in any way, was a source of my suffering and theirs. It lacks authenticity and discourages intimacy – two things I deeply value.

I dropped the controlling and manipulating behaviors, and now, I notice that I rarely encounter anyone who tries to pull that behavior with me. If they do, I have compassion, because I know it comes from a place of deep wounding and suffering and I’m interested in Love, which is our healer.

I invite you to take a look at where you give yourself permission to manipulate people with your moods and attitudes. It creates more trouble than it could ever be worth. The worst fall out is that it will degrade your personal sense of self-esteem and worthiness.

Having loving relationship builds self-esteem and worthiness and that’s a far better investment of your precious energy.

Miraculous Relationship Healing

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

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 year where we’re all learning about Self-Love – Self with a capital S.  This is the curriculum, and we can delay, 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.  And this whole month I’ve been doing something different.  We’re still focusing on relationship healing and holy relationships, and this month I’m taking live calls and written in questions to do one-on-one Q&A help, just like I do in my weekly Sacred Circle Spiritual Counseling calls.

Please share with friends, loved ones, and at Facebook – to let people know they can come and ask their relationship questions – I’m only taking questions about relationships.

Relationship Clarity

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

I love how it says in A Course in Miracles that, when we see one thing or one person differently, we’ll see everything differently.  We’re on a journey to let go of our projections so we can actually see with true VISION.

When we are willing to see things for their true purpose, it is the beginning of true sight.  Our relationships afford us the very best opportunity there is in this world to purify our mind.

I dedicate February to relationships on my weekly radio show.  And this whole month, I’m doing something different.  We’re still focusing on relationship healing and holy relationships, and this month, I’m taking live calls and written in questions to do one-on-one Q&A help, just like I do in my weekly Sacred Circle Spiritual Counseling calls.

Loving the Beloved

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

Many years ago, during the month of February, in honor of Valentine’s Day, I sat for hours in contemplative meditation about Love. It came to me so clearly that my primary relationship is with the Infinite Presence. My beloved is THE Beloved, regardless of what other relationships I might have.

On that fine Valentine’s Day gone by, as I continued my sittings in contemplative meditation about the nature of Love, what I came to feel was that the Beloved loves me with an infinite capacity to love. My Beloved loves me through everyone and everything, that’s how much my Beloved loves me. What I awoke to is that I want to be THAT Lover’s lover.

I choose to say with strength and Clarity that I AM devoted to the Lover who loves with no beginning and no end. The Beloved holds nothing against me and cannot do enough for me. Everywhere I go, there my lover is, rejoicing in me, making my way joyous.

Miraculously, with this realization of being adored by the Divine, I’ve been able to walk (more and more every day), with the sense that the Beloved is with me always. This soulful realization has led me to be more loving, more kind to everyone I meet – knowing that they are an aspect of my Beloved, the source of all Love. This realization has led me to be more receptive to the good that my Beloved is always trying to express for me and around me. This is where the devotion is for me. My Beloved cannot help but give to me, and I am receptive to it or it passes me by.

Because I feel so well loved it is easier for me to be more patient, kind, generous, and more like my Beloved.  I have finally learned how to walk in the awareness that I give only to my Beloved and it is only my Beloved who gives to me – no matter what it looks like or who is standing in front of me. Always, it is my Beloved. I am in love with The One who invented Love and The One who invented Love is in love with me ~ and ever shall it be so.

Since All is One, I know that you too are the Beloved of the Beloved – and ever shall it be so!

Retreat with me!  I’m offering a deeply healing, renewing and restoring retreat, March 16 to 19 in New York.  As always, on my retreats, we’ll have a lot of fun while we’re doing a lot of deep cleansing and clearing of old emotional and mental baggage.  It’s such a relief to let it go!  If you’d like to start your spring with real Clarity and healing, come join me!  Click here for details about my Masterful Living Retreat – the early bird discount is on now – this retreat is open to all – come and bring a friend!

Best Investment Ever!

Saturday, January 14th, 2017

The one and only person I need to make contact with every day is myself, and by that, I mean the Holy Self, the Spirit Self – the Higher Holy Spirit Self. There are so many wonderful ways to make contact with my Higher Self. I can meditate, write in my journal, take a walk, or simply be still and contemplative. All the great mystics have known and shown that the Kingdom is within. We must learn to be in constant conscious contact with the inward voice. This is essential to living a loving, nonviolent, awakened life.

My relationship with my self is the most important relationship I have. As in any successful relationship, I must be a good listener and a good communicator. There needs to be respect and admiration. I need to value my self and honor my self in order for the healing I desire to occur.

If the people I love ignore me and don’t acknowledge me, it feels like an act of hostility. When I ignore my inner voice, I am being unloving and uncaring towards my self.

I work with this every day of my life – to be more awake and aware is my goal!

It’s crazy-making to tell yourself and others that you’re interested in profound mystical expansion and enlightenment while you choose not to tune in, tap in, and commune with the highest aspects of your awareness.  Living that way is saying one thing while doing another. Your entire life will be in conflict if that’s how you live.

Ignoring the Higher Self can become a habit. I’ve learned that I can replace any destructive habit with a constructive one. I’ve realized that developing the habit of connecting inwardly has been a great healer in my life. I take the time to to listen and it saves a huge amount of time, effort and $$ cleaning up after the mistakes that come from not honoring Holy Self.

When there’s fear, we’re listening to ego rather than Spirit.  The fear is the alarm bell letting us know we’ve gotten off course from living a loving life.  When there’s fear, worry and doubt, our faith is in our little self, rather than our Higher Self.

Today the invitation is to take stock of how interested you are in listening to the inner voice. Commit to invest some time to consciously contact your Higher Holy Spirit Self each and every day. Get invested in that relationship. It’s the most important relationship you have. In this way you honor and respect your self and you become the vibration of honor and respect. Like attracts like.

PLUS, As you do this for yourself, you can offer it to others and in so doing you become the message of Love. You become the healing presence in your own life. Why delay, when healing is here for you now!

ACT NOW! My New Year’s Intention class is a 3-part series that just started. Enroll now and you can get the first class and lay the ground work for your most healing year ever! It’s the best way I know to get motivate and inspiration to have a different experience this year. Please click here to learn more now!

When Compassion Hurts

Sunday, November 27th, 2016

In my free class yesterday, on Relationship Healing & Harmony, I shared about one of my own personal issues that I’ve done a lot of healing on.  I call it, “dysfunctional compassion.”  I notice a lot of my spiritual friends have the same issue – and most of us don’t even realize what’s going on!

We have such a strong desire to be loving, kind, gentle and generous, and to heal our old mean, petty, selfish, critical ways, that we go beyond forgiveness into allowing people to take advantage of us.

Allowing people to take advantageous is dysfunctional.  When we repeatedly ask for people to respect certain things and they still don’t, of course we’re going to forgive that and not judge it.  That’s the way to heal our mind.  But forgiving people, not judging them, is different than enabling them.

No one can take advantage of us unless we allow it.  That’s just how it works.  We have to give people our permission to take advantage of us.  And that’s exactly why we get so hurt and upset when people take advantage of us.  We’re actually judging ourselves for allowing them to do it to us, and blaming them for hurting us.  In this, we’re allowing the dysfunctional, unloving thought-pattern to continue to keep it’s hold on us and we’re blaming someone else for how we feel about it.  That’s the REAL reason we’re upset.  Because we’re enabling the ego.

The ego thought-patterns of lack, attack, limitation, and separation are insidious and tricky.

And yet, there’s only ONE POWER in this world, and that is the power of Love!  We ARE Love.  Therefore, we win.  Whenever we’re ready to apply the Power of Love in our lives, we start making amazing and miraculous headway.   Knowing this, I become more and more empowered every day to let Spirit win in my heart, my mind, and my life.

We don’t have to figure out how to have a healing – we only have to ALLOW the power of Love to win in our heart and mind, and then we’ll see it winning in our life!
