I have always had plenty of friends, ever since I was a tween I can remember having lots of friends. It’s not that I’m a hugely social person, it’s that I really do like/love people. When I’m around people a lot of the time it presents a multitude of growth opportunities for me. Left to my own devices, I will tend to retreat and I LOVE my alone time.
I used to get triggered by every little thing other people did. I’d get annoyed and hold it against them. I’d judge them and then feel badly about myself for being so “witchy.” One of the tremendous benefits and results of my spiritual practice is that I can be around people now non-stop for weeks and months on end and not become hostile.
I’m so grateful for that.
I’ve also learned that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE being in spiritual community for healing, harmonizing purposes. It’s SO true that when we are the two or more who are gathered, the Holy Spirit is there with us.
I’ve learned the healing power of community.
I love spiritual practice in a group.
I used to dislike having to be with other people because I thought they were bothering me.
I used to think that other people’s energy was bringing me down. A lot of people believe this and it’s actually bold-faced ego B.S. (belief system).
I decided to stop kidding myself.
And I’m inviting you to do the same.
Here’s the truth:
Other people don’t upset us and bother us.
We think they do, but
it’s just not true.
Let’s stop believing that so we can get on with our awakening and healing.
What actually bothers us is OUR beliefs about other people.
And in order to move forward in our spiritual growth – we must forgive ourselves for deceiving ourselves about our upsets and what we blamed on others that wasn’t their fault.
Because when we choose to be unloving and lack compassion we are causing our own upset.. We we answer the cry for Love with judgment and attack – we will be upset. That feeling of upset is an alarm going off in our Spirit because we’re choosing to hurt ourselves when we are unloving to another. After all, we’re one with all of our brothers and sisters.
If you couldn’t feel the upset when you choose to be unloving, you’d be in deep trouble spiritually.
Over the years, many people, too many to count, have come to me because they’re desperate to get away from someone they love who is a chronic complainer, or has some other negative mental habit and their belief is that this other person is ruining their life.
I have worked with people who’ve said they hated their spouses and felt their spouses were ruining their lives with their negativity.
What I’ve found, year after year (I’ve been offering my programs Finding Freedom From Fear for 15 years and Masterful Living for 14 years) is that when people get into an active spiritual practice things change.
That person that hated their spouse had a miraculous healing and fell back in Love. I’ve seen it happen again and again. Friends, relatives, loved ones, reunited through the power of Love.
For those who are willing to do the inner work of taking out the mental trash and emotional clutter there’s a major breakthrough to a deeper connection with Spirit and an authentic and powerful commitment to spiritual practice develops.
People are deluded by ego thoughts that all of this inner work and growth is either impossible, it doesn’t last or it won’t work for them. And that’s exactly how I felt because I’d tried so many things that were intellectual and not actually helpful.
I was so convinced these kinds of miracles were for other people but not for me.
If we can be convinced that it won’t work for us, we will believe it. If we can be convinced that we’re especially dysfunctional and things “never” seem to work for us, then that’s where we’ll wind up.
I struggled with this a long time.
I spun my wheels, played small and stayed stuck.
It was painful.
And that’s why I must speak out and encourage others.
This is why it takes such courage to make a change and make a difference in our own lives. This is why A Course in Miracles warns us about the fear to look within. It can be a block to Love and all blocks to love are impediments to our healing – especially when we don’t understand it.
I truly never imagined that I could experience the healing and transformation I experience now.
I never imagined I could feel the Peace I experience now. And that’s why it’s so important to me to encourage others to be willing to dive in, even if you don’t believe.
In fact, ESPECIALLY if you don’t believe!
That’s what I did.
I’ve been on fire all this spring.
The more intense the world gets, the more inspired I feel to bring the healing power of Love.
It’s so important that we not be distracted and put other things aside to focus on our liberation.
Spirit will always succeed and we can put Spirit in charge of this. If you knew you couldn’t fail – what would your spiritual goals be? Would you put Spirit first?
