It’s intense right now for a lot of people. We see it in the news and we can feel it in the day-to-day. Things that don’t work anymore are falling apart so that there can be more Peace, Love, and Joy in our lives. When we’re not willing to let go of dysfunction, it starts to implode or explode in order to keep us from stagnating.
Sometimes the intensity of the unhealed patterns in our mind shows up as a surge of fear first thing in the morning or the last thing at night. It feels to me that there’s a real collective shift that’s going on – I’d venture to say we can all feel it. For those of us who are willing to wake up and be focused on being a truly helpful and loving presence in the world, we can really make a difference right now.
Strengthen your commitment to not ruminating on what you don’t like and what you don’t want. Right now, resist giving any energy to what feels upsetting – but don’t deny or repress your feelings, unless you’d like to keep the drama and the trauma continues.
It’s not easy sometimes, but it’s SO valuable to simply be present with yourself.
Our feelings are incredibly valuable.
They help us to realize what’s true and what’s false.
“Pain is a wrong perspective.” A Course in Miracles, Lesson 190
Notice your feelings.
Stay alert to your feelings.
Your feelings indicate where your thinking is focused.
If you don’t feel peaceful, notice what you’re thinking about and hand it over to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing. There’s truly no value and only difficulty when we try to go it alone. You can stop managing and coping with it and simply open your mind to the most loving choice. It will become clear to you, trust Spirit to show it to you.
It WILL be revealed to you and that will bring you new insight, new support, plus relief. Learning to trust Spirit leads to a deep and healing faith. The practice of trusting Spirit and trusting Love to be the best choice is SO worth it!
A Course in Miracles tells us that “An untrained mind can accomplish nothing.”
We’re in mind training.
It’s not easy.
It often doesn’t feel good.
It can feel excruciating at times.
Our Willingness to choose Love is the only pathway to higher ground and, fortunately, it ALWAYS leads us to higher ground. There really isn’t another choice, is there?
If you’d like support in doing this work and in finding the inner courage to go for it and not give up, please consider taking my Finding Freedom From Fear spiritual boot camp and joining with other like-minded souls who are doing the same work. I find that when we do the work together we get there faster and we laugh a lot more. It’s so much easier when we peel the layers of painful patterns together. Easier, faster, more Love, more Light, more fun, that’s the way for me!
Finding Freedom From Fear spiritual boot camp with ACIM Principles starts TODAY! I won’t be offering it again for about 6 months.
