I’m beyond grateful for the healing I’ve had in my relationships. It has taught me so much.
A Course in Miracles tells us that relationships are the #1 tool we have to heal our mind of all of our misperceptions.
And yet, most of us persist in continuing to blame others for our upsets and, in doing so, we miss the opportunity for healing that’s presenting itself.
I got so tired of the repeating patterns in my relationships, I just couldn’t stand it anymore.
My relief came in the form of my realizing that I was responsible for what I saw, and I was choosing the upset that I wished to feel. It took me a while to figure it out, but once I was willing to take responsibility the rest was relatively easy.
“This is the only thing that you need do for vision, happiness, release from pain and the complete escape from sin, all to be given you. Say only this, but mean it with no reservations, for here the power of salvation lies:
I am responsible for what I see. I choose the feelings I experience, and I decide upon the goal I would achieve. And everything that seems to happen to me I ask for, and receive as I have asked. Deceive yourself no longer that you are helpless in the face of what is done to you. Acknowledge but that you have been mistaken, and all effects of your mistakes will disappear.” T-21.II.2.
Practicing this in our relationships is profoundly transformative.
It’s not for the lazy or faint of heart. It will rock you to your core, but in a way that’s healing and so helpful. It does require a tremendous willingness, an earnest willingness and a relentless willingness.
Ask yourself if you have that kind of willingness?
“Wilt though be made whole?”
If you don’t have the willingness, what are you waiting for?
Why do you delay?
Do you believe you’re helpless and hopeless?
If so, then you’re not relying upon the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing, you’re relying upon ego and that’s the reason.
It’s not that you can’t heal, it’s that you won’t choose to believe it.
That can change, too, if you’re willing.
