One of my favorite things I get to do is to support the people in this ministry who have become or are becoming spiritual counselors, teachers and prayer practitioners. It’s such a blessing to see people fully stepping up to be truly helpful.
Last week I got to have class with the Spiritual Counselors in my Certification program and, as always, it’s a beautiful reminder of how many wonderful people there are in my life, and how much we can be truly helpful.
Yesterday, in our WONDERFUL Sundays With Spirit online celebration of Spirit, I was sharing that I’ve had a spiritual counselor to support me for coming up on 25 years. This is an important part of my life because I am sharing so much with so many, it’s important that I have help to look at my own stuff.
I say: it takes a village to raise a Minister.
And it takes a village to raise all of us.
We all benefit from having a village to support us.
With loving people around us, we’ll realize that our judgments are preventing our happiness.
A Course in Miracles tells that we cannot judge and still hope to learn.
Our judgments actually block our learning.
It makes sense when you think about it.
If we prefer to think we know what everything is for, are we open to any insights or learning?
No, we’re not, because we think we already know whatever is worth knowing. How can you be open to insight when you’ve already made up your mind what everything is for?
Have you had the experience of repeating the same errors, the same unkindness, the same self-attack, again and again, like a hamster on a wheel? I have, and my experience seemed to “prove” to me that I wasn’t very smart, that I wasn’t really learning anything from all my spiritual studies. Nothing could be further from the truth.
My experience didn’t prove my beliefs were correct. Not at all.
In fact, my experience was simply proving to me that my beliefs are made manifest as my experience.
This is so important to understand – it’s life changing.
Our unhappy experiences prove that we believe our false beliefs – the truth will set us free from repeating these unhappy experiences.
In New Thought we say, “change your thinking, change your life.” And we talk about “false beliefs.”
It’s more helpful to realize that ALL beliefs are false and truth is true.
How do you know the difference between a belief and a truth?
All beliefs are conditional.
Truth is true for everyone all the time.
Beliefs are constantly shifting and changing, like the sinking sands.
Like God itself, Truth is unchanging – it’s the rock we can safely build our house upon.
I encourage us all to look around your life and see where we might have been misled into thinking that our experiences are proving our beliefs, when, in fact, our experience is just proving the existence of our beliefs. And that’s an entirely different thing.
When we rid ourselves of our beliefs – we rid ourselves of the unpleasant experiences that our false beliefs generate. There’s no extra cost for doing this inner work, we can do it every day of our lives, and that’s what I’m most interested in – not playing small anymore, awakening to the Light.
Many, many times I’ve spoken with people who felt helpless and hopeless in their relationships and in their careers. When they become willing to change their minds and actually make the effort, they experience miracles. It really works!
How do we rid ourselves of the false beliefs?
It’s actually incredibly simple, when we’re willing to make a change.
If we’re not willing to make a change then we just keep revisiting the same painful lessons.
We cannot judge and hope to learn.
To release the false beliefs, opinions and judgments we offer them to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing.
We don’t have to figure out HOW to have a healing we simply ALLOW.
Sometimes we might have to release, let go and let God, 1000 or more times if we have a strong attachment to a belief. I’ve certainly had to do that with many false beliefs – and the healing happened as soon as I was really willing to let it go.
If we do the releasing a few times a day, then we’re sure to let it go before too long – anything is better than struggling with the same painful belief for years and decades.
Now is the time for us to rise and shine and throw off these meaningless burdens of false beliefs!
Healing is easier than you might think. Our willingness to Partner UP with the Higher Holy Spirit Self to do the heavy lifting is the thing that works. I know, I’ve proved it and I’ve worked with thousands who have done the same. Let’s be willing to have a healing NOW!
