once took a yoga class with a very well-known teacher who began by saying that we all have pain in our lives. As a longtime yoga student, I know that pain can be a regular thing as I deepen in my practice.
As an A Course in Miracles student, I know that “pain is a wrong perspective,” as it says in lesson 190 which is “I choose the joy of God instead of pain.”
This teacher said that we all have pain in our lives, but it doesn’t have to be ongoing and constant. Still, many people believe that pain is constant and that it will continue to be. Yoga can help us to work at the level of the mind and also to feel better despite the pain.
I’m for a pain-free life, a life of learning through joy.
I’ve witnessed that my work at the level of the mind has helped me heal the suffering I was experiencing.
In my life I experience a minor amount of physical pain, and rarely experience emotional or mental pain anymore – but they used to be pretty steady. This is what compels me to share what I’m discovering and learning about what’s possible for us.
I believe we can all be shining examples of joyful learners!
If you absolutely knew that Spirit could transform your perspective your pain and suffering to Peace and Prosperity, but it would take two to five years, depending upon your willingness, would you delay?
What would you start to do differently?
When I had so much pain in my life, one of my constant thoughts was, that I had SO FAR TO GO. I wish I had known then, that the healing I desired wouldn’t take ANYWHERE NEAR as long as I thought it would.
Had I been able to comprehend how much faster I could reach a place of mostly Peace and happiness, I would have stopped delaying and gotten on with it decades sooner.
I just didn’t know.
This is really a big part of why I write this daily shot of Spiritual Espresso each day, and why I record a new prayer each day, because we can get there so much faster than we believe we can. Knowing this helps us get to the place of Peace faster!
ACIM says our willingness is ALL that’s required. What helped me to really increase my willingness was to start saying these affirmations:
I am willing to be all-in for Love.
I am doing it now.
God is working through me now.
Healing is happening now.
I accept and allow my healing with my whole heart.
Thank you Spirit for my healing!
I encourage you to work with these and to find your own! In the comments section below, please share any powerful affirmations that you’ve found that support your awakening to Love!
TODAY: Because self-sabotage and particularly self-medication were such a problem for me, and the healing I’ve had has been so beautiful – I started offering this End My Self-Sabotage Challenge that begins TODAY. We can do this deep work together and remember to laugh.
I’m even offering daily spiritual practice LIVE on ZOOM with me as part of the challenge. I’m giving this my all!
The first week is my gift to you!
And to your friends – we’re starting TODAY: Saturday, July 17 – that’s in 2 days – come join us – you’ll be in SUCH good company.
Doing the healing work that we’re doing in the 1st week of the challenge requires strength and courage. It’s no joke.
In the past, there’s been SO MUCH healing for those who participated – many are doing it again.
We can do this together and set ourselves free from the pain of repeating the patterns that perpetuate our suffering.
There are so many forms of self-medication and there’s one suited to each personality. Each one brings with it a bucket of shame.
Let’s clear out that shame.
I’ve found that when we work on this issue together in community a lot of healing comes and we can actually let go long entrenched habits that most people spend a lifetime struggling with.
Accept my gift. Struggle no more!
Honestly, I never thought I’d experience the healing that I have. I didn’t know how to get past the struggle with self-medication and self-sabotage, but I did – because of my spiritual practices. And that’s what I’d like to share with you.
End My Self Sabotage Challenge
Starts this Saturday, July 17
Get The Motivation & Support to Free Yourself
From Self-Medication So You Can Live A Life You Love!
This challenge is about gaining awareness and becoming inspired. This is about motivation, not information. Information isn’t healing, but expanded awareness is! Let’s get some expanded awareness together!!
Most people fall into self-medication at one time or another, and for some people, it’s a very addictive and compulsive habit that is demoralizing self-sabotage that keeps us playing small and feeling shameful. Enough!!
Let’s gain awareness and become inspired to make some changes. Awareness is always curative.
Let’s gain the motivation to be more self-loving, to release shame, and to open our hearts to have more energy to live a life we truly LOVE!
We’ll do it together! We’ll release the resistance and reluctance together. Let’s get that out of the way so we can get on with being truly helpful!
