I’m having a girls weekend with my BFF Lisa Natoli and we’re having a blast together.  Of course, we’re talking about God practically non-stop.

Last weekend I was in my kundalini yoga teacher training, which I LOVE, and I had an interesting experience. Part of our training includes going to morning prayer and meditation time, which is called Sadhana. Generally you’re going to start before sunrise, and we were starting at 5:30.  We were had our morning practice at my friend Kimani’s healing center, the Women’s Healing Zone, in Montclair, NJ and then we all went to breakfast nearby and went to get in our cars and go to the Montclair Kundalini yoga studio for the rest of the day’s training.

When we walked back to our cars we found that my car had been towed, another friend’s car was on the tow truck, and another about to be towed because we had all parked the wrong way on a one-way street.

The police office was there and he explained that the rest of the street was two-way, but right where we parked was when the street became one-way. Signage isn’t great, no one else was parked there at 5:15am, so we didn’t know. The office told us he thought we were a bunch of drunks who were at the coffee shop at the corner sobering up. Apparently, a lot of people get a ticket for this kind of thing.

I laughed and smiled and said “well I’m feeling pretty good about this because I just realized I’m 58 years old and I’ve never been towed in my life! This is the first time ever. Not bad!” Also, I felt so elevated because of the hours of spiritual practice with my beloved kundalini crew and our “family” breakfast.

Here were the facts:

  • I would have to pay $250 to get my car back.
  • I have to pay a $60 parking violation ticket
  • I have to go to the police station and get a form from them saying they approved me getting my car back.
  • Then I have to go to the two place and get my car.

I knew all of that, but I also knew that I am always in my right place.  I know that God is my source and me having to pay those fines would not diminish my Abundance because my source is unlimited.
It’s not about how much I have, it’s about how much I will ALLOW.

Think of this:  Water seeks it’s own level.

Abundance is according to our allowance, and it has EVERYTHING to do with forgiveness which is why I teach forgiveness (I’m offering my Forgive & Be Free workshop at no charge today in NYC).

Forgiveness has transformed EVERYTHING in my life.

So, to continue my story, the police officer was listening to us ladies talking about why we parked the wrong way, how we were going to get to our training, who was going to give who a ride and how we could help each other out, and then he said this:

“Here’s how I can help you out.  I haven’t written the tickets yet.  I don’t have to write them, so I won’t.  That will save you all $60 a piece.”

Yay! That was wonderful. To me, the most wonderful thing was that he became a giver and we became receivers and that helped shift some of the energy, because there was a bit of intensity between the tow truck driver and my friend.

My friend was a bit peeved that he wouldn’t take her car off the truck and she was worried that she would be late for work the next day.  And I felt that, deep down, she was feeling guilty because she was the first one who parked the “wrong” way and we might not have parked that way if we hadn’t followed her lead.

I suggested that she let go of judging herself, I wasn’t judging her and I wasn’t upset AT ALL.  I knew that if she could release her self-judgment, the guilt would be gone and her happiness would return.  When we walked to lunch later we were discussing it and I said:

Don’t plan for your unhappiness.

Everybody loved that.  For me, I really had to learn that.  I used to plan for my unhappiness.

The story continues.  The next day we went to the police station, then to the tow place.  It was TORRENTIAL rain, epic rain, and we did it all with a smile even though there were some hiccups and my friend got to work on time.

Then, this weekend I had planned a Girls God Getaway with my BFF Lisa Natoli.  (I LOVE LOVE LOVE this woman!)

Lisa picked a hotel in Milford, Connecticut and she drove down from Maine and I drove up from New Jersey. Lisa booked us a 2 bedroom suite so we could hang on in the living room, make breakfast and be in our bathrobes as much as we wanted. The room was $250 per night. Lisa decided to see if she could use her Marriott points from her credit card and she got us the room for FREE.

We were going to split the cost, so I saved that $250 that I spent on the tow truck. Get it?  The universe gave it right back to me so fast!

Then, Lisa’s gorgeous husband, Bill Free, slipped a card with a $100 bill in it for us to enjoy a nice dinner.  She found the surprise when she opened her suitcase.

Get it?
Worry is rehearsing for a future you don’t want.
Don’t plan for your unhappiness.
ALLOW your Abundance.
Don’t stress figuring out HOW, instead learn to relax and ALLOW.
And let’s allow the errors of the past to be undone.

I did an episode of my weekly A Course in Miracles weekly Radio Show on Undoing the Errors and this is the kind of thing that we can learn to do.  Instead of making the errors real, and lamenting them, let’s put our attention on undoing and healing, waking up and remembering.

A Course in Miracles tells us: The first corrective step in undoing the error is to know first that the conflict is an expression of fear. Say to yourself that you must somehow have chosen not to love, or the fear could not have arisen. Then the whole process of correction becomes nothing more than a series of pragmatic steps in the larger process of accepting the Atonement as the remedy. These steps may be summarized in this way:

Know first that this is fear.
Fear arises from lack of love.
The only remedy for lack of love is perfect love.
Perfect love is the Atonement.”  T-2.VI.7.

Today, in every area of my life, I can choose to experience healing and this contributes to 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.

P.S. You can get all the episodes of my radio show, many have been transcribed, all available here livingacourseinmiracles.com/radio.

Are you ready to Stop Playing Small? It’s not too late to sign up for my retreat that starts on Thursday, April 26. I’m planning a time of transformation for us!

You can combine the Stop Playing Small Retreat with the Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive and get a discount!  Plus we have payment plans and early bird special is on now!

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.

If you’re willing, let’s do it 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 this month.

I haven’t offered a Stop Playing Small Retreat in for a couple of years, so if this interests you, please join! We practice and learn Self-Love in Spiritual Community and it’s a powerful healing and life-changing experience. We can accomplish a lot in a short time when we come together focused on transformation.

We’re an expanding global spiritual community of prayerful people willing to be co-workers with God. We’re waking up together and finding freedom in our hearts. I’m so grateful for this!

If you find what I’m sharing is helpful, won’t you please share at facebook and twitter to let others know? Thank you!
