Self-acceptance

April 17, 2021 | COMMENTS
There’s nothing too big for God. Our holiness is bigger than ANY problem we think we might have.   Problems present themselves for all kinds of reasons.  In my experience, I’ve generated problems for myself as a kind of self-punishment.... Read More

The Power of Love

March 23, 2021 | COMMENTS
Recently someone asked me how I decided the name of this ministry would be Power of Love Ministry.  I didn’t decide it - not really - I was listening to the Agape International Choir sing a song that was written... Read More

Smoothing the Edges

March 20, 2021 | COMMENTS
What a week!  The intensity of density has really been felt by most of us.  Lots of inner churning and burning.   As I’ve said many times:  It’s all good, but it’s not all fun. Today is the equinox.  We’re... Read More

Surfing

In my Sacred Circle today we were talking about the same thing I was sharing in my spiritual espresso yesterday - the energy is very intense right now and it’s stirring up a lot of old stuff. That stirring can... Read More

Interrupt That Pattern Now!

March 3, 2021 | COMMENTS
Obsessive thinking is more common than most of us realize.  A lot of us think we’re the only ones who go over and over the same things in our minds obsessively.  This used to be a real challenge for me.... Read More

Love and Sacrifice

March 2, 2021 | COMMENTS
One of the most destructive thoughts that’s also pervasive in our world is the idea that we must make sacrifices for Love. As they say, “nothing could be further than the truth.” A Course in Miracles tells us that sickness is... Read More

Accept Your Holiness

March 1, 2021 | COMMENTS
One of the themes in A Course in Miracles is that Spirit has already made us holy. I like to say “we’re already as holy as holy can be.” There’s a beautiful passage about meditation that gives us this clear... Read More

Awakening to Love

February 12, 2021 | COMMENTS
When I bring my attention fully into the present, into the now, then I can see that each and every moment contains a choice. The choice is always between love and something other than love. As I keep a commitment... Read More

Traction

If your spiritual practice isn’t bringing you the healing and transformation you desire it might be because your methods aren’t that great.   Ask yourself:  Are your spiritual tools and practices designed to bring you permanent healing at the ROOT... Read More

Addicted to Fantasy?

January 28, 2021 | COMMENTS
We were talking in Masterful Living class this week about the differences between vision and fantasy.  Such a helpful topic! One MAJOR form of self-sabotage that is also self-medication (and I left off my list yesterday) is spending a lot... Read More

Living the Miracle

January 5, 2021 | COMMENTS
When I first began to study A Course in Miracles I noticed that many people I encountered who had been studying the Course for years weren’t actually LIVING it. They were studying, without embodying and truly embracing with their heart.... Read More

Happy New Year 2021

January 1, 2021 | COMMENTS
What a gift we can give ourselves through our spiritual practice. We can connect with the highest wisdom and we can let go of the greatest pains of the past. We can liberate! Each year at this time, I think... Read More

Having Humility

November 10, 2020 | COMMENTS
Here’s an interesting observation: After working with so many people as a spiritual counselor, as a spiritual leader and teacher, a minister, a practitioner and just as someone having a human experienced, I’ve noticed that it’s often the case that... Read More

Undoing Ego Thinking

October 20, 2020 | COMMENTS
In my podcast today, I’ll be sharing about Undoing the Ego Thinking.  This is the primary focus in my classes - so that we can feel more Peace, Love and Joy. The ego thought system is one that ensnares us, like... Read More

Pulled By A Vision

October 10, 2020 | COMMENTS
One of the things that truly amazes me is how much I can LOVE spiritual truth and principle.  It lights me up and I never find it dull.  To me, loving spiritual principle is the same as loving Spirit.  Loving... Read More

Abundance Focus

October 6, 2020 | COMMENTS
Healing the habits of fear isn’t easy, but it’s FAR EASIER than living in fear. But you wouldn’t know that if you’ve always lived in fear. One of the things that happens is that we get focused on what we... Read More

Rainbow Bridge

September 19, 2020 | COMMENTS
A Course in Miracles talks about the bridge we’re building to the Real world. I feel it as a rainbow bridge of light. This is one of my favorite readings in ACIM - it’s from the section entitled “The Rewards... Read More

Transcending Despair and Dread

August 29, 2020 | COMMENTS
It’s very common for people to go through a period of despair on the way to rising up out of the ego’s quagmire.  I certainly did. Despair is a systemic hopelessness. And some people get caught in despair and dread.... Read More

Sharing Our Gifts and Talents

August 17, 2020 | COMMENTS
Everyone has talents. Everyone is brilliant in their own way - I’ve definitely seen this is true, especially as a spiritual counselor for 20 years. Many people are hiding their talents, or underutilizing them. It’s crazy that so many people... Read More

Seeing Clearly and Correctly

August 15, 2020 | COMMENTS
We don’t see what we cannot see. I used to get so annoyed with people because they weren’t observing what I thought was SO obvious.  I mean, how could they NOT see it?  It’s right there! It was frustrating to me... Read More

Train In the Distance

July 17, 2020 | COMMENTS
I’m in Vermont and enjoying the sounds of the countryside here in the Green Mountains near the Sunray Peace Village where I’ve been coming since 2006. I just LOVE the sounds of the birds. They lift me up all day... Read More

SUBJECT: Flip It

July 16, 2020 | COMMENTS
I was never one to flip people “the bird.”  That’s not my style.  Yet, I’ve done my share of being sarcastic and mean to folks.  Sometimes I’ve felt like it all happened so fast that my worst instincts got the... Read More
