Have you noticed the energy shifting all around you, as well as in you? I sure have. What I see is that the people who have a small amount of willingness are using that to create an opening in their heart and their mind to find an even greater willingness, and they are seeing real results from it.
And then there are the folks who are in the place of believing they aren’t worthy of the good in life, and that they’re so unworthy that they don’t believe the healing can happen for them.
I used to feel so strongly that things work for others, but not for me, and so, “Why bother?” Can you relate?
I continued listening to audios, and reading books, and going to spiritual events without really committing to do the deep work. I continued feeling that the true healing and awakening I was after was elusive.
I didn’t realize that the reason it was elusive was because of my own resistance to make the commitment to doing the inner work necessary. It requires the willingness to overcome the fear to look within – and that fear is STRONG, but it has no power unless we give it power. It dissolves when we join together with others to look together. I love that about spiritual community.
I remember working with a counseling client who doubted the possibility of having real results. I said “If I could guarantee you that Fed-Ex would deliver your perfect healing on a day one year from now, would you accept it?”
She said she would receive it, yes.
I said, “Alright then, let’s work together in faith. Now, if you will take the stand that YOU know your healing will be delivered – even though you don’t know what it will look like – how would you like to focus your energy for the next year?”
You see, without faith she would spend the next year worrying and stressing about NOT HAVING the healing. But if she was willing to believe that the healing was guaranteed, she wouldn’t be worrying and stressing.
AND she wouldn’t be pushing the healing away. When we doubt, we are pushing the results we’d like away. And, deep down, it’s about our worthiness. That’s ALL it’s about. In ALL cases. All our doubt about Spirit is really self-doubt projected onto God.
We can’t be welcoming our good at the same time as we’re doubting it’s happening. Those are two opposing thoughts.
Just last weekend I did my Recovery From Sexual Abuse retreat, and it was one of the VERY BEST things I’ve ever done. Here’s why it was so great:
All of the participants were ALL-IN for their healing. They had GREAT willingness, even though they were anxious about doing the inner work.
They definitely had the fear to look within, but they were so willing to have a breakthrough.
These beautiful women in the photo above, Paula, Elizabeth, Kelly and Suzi, have SO MUCH COURAGE! They are to be applauded. They knew they were doing this inner work for everyone and not just themselves. They let go of so much and it was inspiring to be a part of it.
I wish there were some way I could inspire everyone to be willing to do the inner work and set themselves free. It’s the reason why I like to do the classes and retreats I do – working together it’s joyful and easier. Last weekend we had a lot of laughs, and everyone agreed that they had fun.
What is the healing that you would welcome and could welcome if you were willing to have faith and trust?
Faith and trust are the big issues we work on in my Finding Freedom From Fear boot camp. I’m going to offer it again in October, and if you’re interested in participating and would like to learn more please click here now to let me know.
LIVING the A Course in Miracles Lessons, walking the talk and living the Love, that’s where the healing is generated from. It ripples throughout our life and brings us the miraculous healing that seems so elusive. If you’d like to some inspiration, check out my podcast. I have have been told by many people that this episode has been very helpful to them: Hidden Ways We Avoid Healing – click here to listen and/or get the transcript. You can also search for any other topic you like.
Yes, it does take a great willingness to move through things quickly AND it’s so gratifying! We’re demonstrating the power of Love to heal our minds and our lives, and every problem we think we have. When we prove God works in our life, our faith is strong!
Let’s make the most of every opportunity for our healing and awakening, and remember to laugh when we forget. Every day I offer “My Shot of Spiritual Espresso”. I write spiritual inspiration and record a prayer for our healing. Prayer is a power tool for our liberation. Please pray with me today. The Prayer for Today is for Bringing On A Breakthrough. We use technology to transcend time and space, and deepen our spiritual practice and connect with each other. Our spiritual practice is our path of liberation. And that’s beautiful to share!
We’re all on a journey of developing trust and faith, and there’s so much help for us in the invisible. We’re never alone. I Love you and I thank God for you. We bless each other with our willingness to rise in Spirit and come back into our right minds.
Together we’re answering our call to BE the Love.
Have you had a breakthrough in trust and faith lately? Please tell us about it and share in the comments below! Thank you!
