We all have challenges going on in our life that we’d rather not look at. Many times we choose to avoid looking at them because they’re overwhelming to us. It’s not that we’re completely unwilling to examine what’s going on, we’re just overwhelmed. It happens to all of us at one time or another.
Sometimes it can feel as if we simply don’t have the energy, the mental or emotional bandwidth, or the time to look at something and so we just keep pushing it to the sideline. What then begins to happen is that tension begins to build.
Some people have a habit of denying, delaying and procrastinating until there’s so much tension they HAVE to do something. Sometimes we treat our life like one of those rubber-band airplanes that you wind up tighter and tighter until we have enough tension to fly.
What I’ve learned is that if I wait until there’s an intense pressure before I make a move, then I’m creating stress that may not be necessary.
We’re developing the spiritual maturity to address things directly and without delay. It makes life easier, cleaner, neater and dramatically eases tension.
Being Self-loving is healing. We often look outside ourselves for all kinds of healing solutions to physical, emotional, mental, financial, relationship and many other kinds of issues, but the solution is often to be kind and loving to ourselves.
When we’re Self-loving, then we naturally open to divinely inspired solutions to our challenges and we don’t have to have lots of simmering pots on the back burners. We don’t have to create an unbearable tension in order to choose to fly. We can steadily and devotedly Love ourselves free of lack, attack and limitation and then life gets a whole lot easier. Spiritual solutions naturally present themselves.
Let’s make a commitment to making the Self-loving choices that make life more enjoyable and more successful. Let’s decide that we can transcend overwhelm. Instead of looking outside for solutions, let’s discover how problems dissolve when we live a life of Self-Love.
How do we do it? We Partner UP and trust Spirit to lead us and guide us. This is a way that actually works. It’s far more nurturing then managing and coping. It’s self-loving. It does require a willingness to trust – and that’s a skill that can be learned.
We’ll all get there eventually. Why not start today?
11 years ago I created a boot camp class called Family Freedom. The very first time I offered it, shortly after my mother’s passing in 2008, people also had amazing and miraculous healing. I realized that the curriculum was really all about applying the ACIM principles in a way that brought freedom from fear and so I’ve continued to work on this class and update it and now I call it Finding Freedom From Fear.
This class is so powerful and transformative that it’s also a requirement for my Spiritual Counseling Certification Program. (My next training will be in October.) I haven’t offered this class in six months, but I’m thinking of offering it soon. I’m thinking of doing something special next time I offer it so that people can do the class with a friend or family member, as there is definitely strength in joining with a partner. If you’d like to be on the waiting list so you can join me next time I offer it, you can go here to sign up for the waiting list and I’ll keep you posted.
Professional Trainings Are Coming!
This October, I’ll be offering another Teacher Training for those who wish to learn How to Lead & Create A Workshop, including certification to teach my Forgive & Be Free Workshop. I’ll also be offering my Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive which is part of my Spiritual Counseling Certification Program. Look for an announcement soon!
