I remember there was a point in my spiritual unfoldment where it seemed like I was being challenged to my core. TO MY CORE! I felt that the challenges were coming in all directions.
My mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
My spiritual community profoundly let me down.
My best friend cheated me.
My sweetheart … oh, don’t even get me started on that one.
I had financial challenges – debts I couldn’t seem to get out from under.
There was more, but that’s enough – it was an ego lollapalooza of betrayals, upsets, and freak outs.
It felt like the challenges were on all levels and in all areas of my life – except that I had my health. Thank GOD for that!
I had the sense that I was being “tested.” I was being tested, not in the way that an unkind teacher would prepare a grueling test in order to put you through the wringer, but rather I was being tested in the sense of being offered an opportunity to rise above all past precedent and break through to a new level of awareness, understanding, strength, and willingness.
That time of challenge was far from easy. It did help that I could feel that it was a test of my mettle. It was the opportunity for me to focus on developing the Clarity that I so deeply desired. It was the required course for me to purify my heart and relinquish the habits of playing small.
It was both difficult and exhausting. It was also exactly what I needed to step more into my true identity as a spiritual being, capable of great Love and compassion. I reached a tipping point, and I have noticed that I’ve not had any backsliding. Instead, it continues to unfold and expand, which is wonderful.
Honestly, I don’t see one spiritual student who truly wishes to awaken from the painful dream of separation who doesn’t go through some VERY INTENSE challenges – challenging them to their core. Sometimes, that’s what the time of healing looks and feels like.
If we’re willing to give up the attachments to the past, we can have a whole new future.
We all know that willingness is the key to transformation. Spiritual practice is EVERYTHING in your awakening. Willingness to be loving and to choose that loving connection over everything else is a spiritual practice.
Leverage your willingness to choose Love and cultivate a belief that you can leave the past behind and release the future, also. This gives you the experience of being present to the now, which is the only place your transformation can happen.
When you feel you’re being tested, be grateful. The tipping point is at hand. Let’s go for it, and let resistance be the reminder that we ARE doing it, we’re not playing small anymore, and we’re not stuck anymore!
Learning to save time, energy, and money is just one of the things we practice in my yearlong Masterful Living Course. We actively practice healing the sense of separation that keeps us disconnected from Spirit. We cultivate the relationship with Spirit. We transform the most painful parts of our life.
Every year, people in my Masterful Living set intentions for the goals they’d like to meet, the changes they’d like to have, and they figure that it’s likely not going to happen. They think they’re just wishing and hoping. Then, at the end of the year, they realize that their intentions have been realized, their life has shifted, their relationships have healed and so much more. Spiritual practice is powerful!
If you feel called, if you feel the time has come to put Spirit first, come join us in 2020 for the best year of your life – the year that changes EVERYTHING. Let’s do it together. If you’d like to find out what others are saying about this powerful community please click here to learn more now.
I am grateful for this path of healing that we’re on and our ability to cultivate a spiritual practice that lifts us up above the battleground! Onward and upward, together we rise in Love!

CLASS STARTS MONDAY: We’re entitled to miracles. One of the things I love so much about my yearlong Masterful Living Course is how excited people get when they realize they can stop repeating the past and life a life they really enjoy – it’s miraculous. People sometimes think that living a miraculous life is for other people, but not for them. People think that miracles are only for people who are special. It’s just not true.
