Eliminating Failure

Saturday, October 19th, 2019

I used to have a fear of failure, and I see that many are stopped in living their deep heart’s desires because they fear their own failure. There is a surefire recipe to avoid failure and it works every time. You are the chef, and the main ingredient is God’s Love living through you and as you. We’re always free to choose “whom” we will serve – God or ego.

The first thing you start with is your goal. What would you like to accomplish? Let’s say your goal is to have a job you love that pays well. In your recipe, your goal represents the photo of the end result in the cookbook. Your goal is the mental picture.

The main ingredient is your desire to serve the Light.

That fire of desire ignites the heart and the Spirit responds.

Next is your Intention. Make sure your intention is anchored in how you will feel. For instance: “My intention is to feel prosperous and fulfilled in the work that I do.” Your intention must incorporate the spiritual change you intend to make in how you feel or you’ll never FEEL successful. Keep the Divine out and you have already failed.

A key ingredient for spiritual success is dedicating the benefits of your fulfilled intention to be shared with everyone because you’re One with them. Allow yourself to fully embrace the fact that as One is lifted, all are lifted. Here is your opportunity to INTEND to share the benefits of your expansion with all beings.

“My intention is to feel prosperous and fulfilled in the work that I do and share the benefits of my expansion with all beings because I AM One with them.”

Now you’ve brought the Divine into your heart and mind, and God will do the work as long as you stay true to your intention. All are fed by your willingness to multiply the loaves and fishes in your life and release the thought of separation forever.

Spirit cannot fail and neither will you.

Complaining Is A Habit We Can Quit

Tuesday, October 8th, 2019

We’re all working on a single tapestry. It’s a tapestry of human life. Some of us are focused on weaving something exquisitely beautiful and may look like the life of someone like John McCain, who (whether you agree with his politics or not) was able to survive being imprisoned and go on to lead a happy and productive life in service to others.

Another person may be like the man I met in Cambodia two years ago who was part of a food collective in his town, where the whole town was working to recover from war, prosper, and raise their children well with more education than they had.

Some people, like many friends of mine, their life is dedicated to undoing the knots. It may look as though the knots came from their family and the way they were treated by their relatives. Maybe.

I’ve learned for myself, with help from A Course in Miracles and my own willingness to value the truth, that I’ve brought the patterns in with me, and those who seem to have contributed to them have only helped me to bring my attention so that I will get on with the work of untying the knots.

I don’t wish to waste another minute complaining about how things are. It doesn’t help and, in fact, it becomes a magnetic attractor for more of the same.

There are no victims, even when it looks like there are victims.

We don’t know what’s really going on.

I’m absolutely certain that some souls volunteer to live a life in service being the challenging child of a person who wishes to learn compassion. This is the way of the Bodhisattva. The Bodhisattva is the awakened Being who chooses to continue the cycle of reincarnation in service until all are awakened.

I imagine that, from the Bodhisattva’s perspective, the entire tapestry is beautiful.

I wish to see the tapestry of life from that Bodhisattva perspective and see only the Beauty.

I had to realize that complaining only muddies up my life and my view of life.

When I see something I don’t like, let me not complain and lend it energy. Let me not invest one more drop of my precious life-energy into that which is not untying the knots or refining the Beauty.

As Howard Thurman would say, let me “keep fresh before me the moments of my high resolve” so that there is nothing more appealing or attractive to energize at this moment or any other.

The way to achieve my goal is to quit complaining.

Complaining has been such a strong habit for me.

There were times when I thought, and I do really mean this, that it was the purpose of my life.

Now, I can feel clearly that the purpose was to untie the knot of complaining as a habit.

Today, let me untie the knots and bring more Beauty with each choice I make.

What do you choose today?
Can you see the knots that it is your life purpose to untie?
If you wish, please share in the comments and I will hold it with you in prayer.

Together we will surely succeed!
Spirit will carry us there, since we are so willing!

If you’d like support in doing this work of untying the knots, please consider taking my Finding Freedom From Fear spiritual boot camp and joining with other like-minded souls who are doing the same work. I find that when we do the work together, we get there faster and we laugh a lot more. It’s so much easier when we peel the layers of painful patterns together. Easier, faster, more Love, more Light, more fun, that’s the way for me!

Finding Freedom From Fear spiritual boot camp with ACIM Principles starts on Thursday! I won’t be offering it again for about 6 months.

Shifting Into Abundance

Saturday, October 5th, 2019

In my Finding Freedom Spiritual Boot camp class, I talk about having an awareness of your spiritual budget. I have found this really helpful to me in shifting my mind and experiencing more happiness. It also has had an effect on my Abundance and Prosperity.

There was a time in my life when I was deficit spending in my finances, and there was also a time I was deficit spending in terms of my happiness.

What I realized was that the way to shift things, and to do it quickly, is to increase the positive and decrease the negative – work it from both sides.

Many people think that the answer to debt is simply to earn more money or to cut expenses.

What I’ve definitely proven is that shifting my mind from a focus on lack and limitation to a focus on gratitude and Love was the most effective change for me to activate my Abundance.

I’ve learned that doing my forgiveness work, and really looking deeply at the root causes of my resentments and regrets while doing the self-forgiveness healing work, has FAR MORE to activate and increase the flow of Prosperity in my life than just earning more money or cutting expenses ever did.

I had the experience of running up a lot of debt and carrying it for a number of years – and then, through my active spiritual practice, I attracted opportunities to earn much more money and I quickly paid off much of my debt – only to have it return. I found myself with even more debt.

This taught me that the answer wasn’t in the world – I learned it for REAL,and so that led to my gratitude.

I prayed for the answer and it came in the form of clarity, insight and divine guidance.

I did the deep forgiveness work – starting with myself, then forgiving others, and then I was led out of the wilderness of my debt.

I had avoided looking within because I was afraid of what I’d see. I preferred to blame others for my problems. Through my practice of prayer, I finally became willing to develop greater spiritual maturity and I found myself truly desiring to forgive EVERYTHING.

I began to get on a roll and build some real momentum. And that’s what my classes are about now. I like creating a safe space, with lots of support, where those who are willing can work in a group and develop the inner fortitude to do the deep healing work and build the momentum of growing from breakthrough to breakthrough and from glory to greater glory.

I feel so blessed now to support those who would like to do as I’ve done. Together we dive deep and fly high – on an ever-increasing upward spiral of God’s omnipresent goodness. I feel so blessed.

I know, for a fact, that forgiveness leads to all kinds of good, including physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, relationship and financial healing – and so much more. That’s why this work is never boring or tiresome. It’s actually AMAZING because it’s always about returning to the unprecedented.

So much healing is available to us when we stop blocking the flow with regrets and resentments. If you’re interested in help with that, check out my Finding Freedom Spiritual Boot camp class which starts on Thursday, October 10.

Together we’re activating our Abundance – we’re going for it!

When we don’t feel connected to Spirit and supported by Spirit, or even when we fear God, it’s most likely a result of feeling unworthy. If you suspect that worthiness is your issue, then you might consider receiving my gift. My “Worthiness Workshop” this past weekend was such a hit, that I’m offering it again this week. Register to get my worksheet and fill it out. I’ll let you know when the next workshop is!

Symptoms of Unworthiness

Sunday, September 22nd, 2019

I remember the very first weekend of ministerial school at the Ernest Holmes Institute. It was this time of year, in 2001. It was right around 9/11. We were on a retreat at Casa de Maria in Santa Barbara, California and Rev. Nirvana Gayle was the leader. I was so excited because I thought we’d be entering into a mystical training following in the footsteps of Ernest Holmes who inspired me so much.

That turned out not to be the case. It was a very intellectual program, with no study of Holmes or mysticism. However, because of my experiences, I now teach in a very different way from that and it has been tremendously successful and I’m so grateful for that.

That first weekend, two things stand out to me. One is that we were told that of the thirty or so people at the retreat only about five of us would be ministers 10 years from graduation. That statistic shocked me. I couldn’t imagine not being a minister. I couldn’t imagine going through all that training – pre-practitioner, practitioner, and then ministerial school – 9 years total – and then not being a minister.

In my senior year, I switched from the Holmes Institute to the Agape school, as Agape withdrew from what is now called Centers for Spiritual Living. I graduated in 2006. There was 1 other graduate with me and he’s still a minister too.

I love ministry. It is definitely my calling. I so love being able to support people from being caught in their ego identity, illness, and despair over their life, relationships, careers, and bodies into becoming miracle minded and truly living the principles of A Course in Miracles. Quite literally, it thrills me! I feel so grateful and so blessed each and every day.

I feel like I have cracked the code on how to live the life you really desire and I see more and more people doing it around me. The reports of folks in my classes and of how their families are healing all around them is my favorite thing. It’s so completely not rocket science, but it does require real willingness to be vigilant over their thoughts.

Which is why this work is not for everyone. Many people are simply not willing to be vigilant over their thoughts. They imagine that it’s too hard. It’s not. It is demanding though. But being miserable is demanding too. Thinking your life is hard and you’re not worthy of Love is even more demanding and has NO benefits. I know, I used to live in that space.

The other thing that I recall from that first weekend of ministerial school is we were asked to tell the group what we were most grateful for. That was easy for me. I am SO VERY grateful for my awareness. I am grateful that I’m ever more aware of my ability to choose. I don’t have to suffer unless I choose to. We can rise above the battlefield of ego consciousness. We really can.

Cultivating the ability to GENUINELY be aware of our thoughts is to living a miraculous life what stretching and exercising are to have a healthy body. Many people satisfy themselves with reading about spirituality and listening to audios about spirituality. They don’t break a sweat. There’s no real exercise in it.

It’s like getting a gym membership, putting on your exercise outfit, going to the gym and watching everyone else workout while reading a book about what they’re doing and then listening to audio about what they did and how they did it. It’s armchair spirituality. We can have gained without pain, but we cannot grow without doing the inner work.

That’s why having a great trainer to go with you, who keeps you company and makes it fun is so helpful. Having a workout posse to join with you is even better. That’s why I organize my classes the way I do. To make it fun, and get it done. For real.

We all have a personal trainer in the Higher Holy Spirit Self, but you have to be willing to do what the trainer advises. And that personal trainer that we ALL have, is always telling us to be loving to ourselves because we are worthy of Love. Every one of us. That is always true and never changes. All are worthy.

Unworthiness is the most chronic illness that people have in this world.

It attacks us mentally and emotionally – but only if we agree. It has no power if we don’t agree.

Symptoms of unworthiness are:

  • Not trusting intuition
  • Second-guessing yourself
  • Attacking yourself
  • Letting people take advantage of you
  • People pleasing
  • Giving to others and doing for others in order to get approval
  • Hiding and isolating
  • Letting people treat you poorly
  • Feeling unappreciated

I had all of these. I see very little of this happening anymore. What a relief!

If you’ve had enough of these things in your life – consider accepting my gift. I’m offering a LIVE VIDEO 2.5-hour workshop intensive next Saturday with a replay on Sunday and it’s my gift to you. There’s no cost, but you do have to register. Click here to register now.

We use technology to transcend time and space and deepen our spiritual practice and connect with each other. Our spiritual practice is our path of liberation. And that’s beautiful to share!

We’re all on a journey of developing trust and faith and there’s so much help for us in the invisible. We’re never alone. I Love you and I thank God for you. We bless each other with our willingness to rise in Spirit and come back into our right minds. Together we’re answering our call to BE the Love. YES!

Along the Extra Mile

Friday, September 13th, 2019

I’ve learned that praying for awakening is a really smart thing to do. Praying to let go of the past is a brilliant strategy for making life more peaceful. Praying for greater willingness to choose Love increases happiness TREMENDOUSLY.

Of course, if we aren’t willing to follow our guidance, then the answered prayer eludes us.

And then, we feel like Spirit isn’t there for us.

What’s really going on is, we’re not available because we think things need to be the way we think they should be – or we’re focused on our grievances.

Recently, I heard someone saying that they understood that “Pain is a wrong perspective” as A Course in Miracles says it is, but then what? What do we do when we’re in pain?

We recognize that the cause of the pain is not what we think it is. We’re never upset for the reason we think. That’s ACIM Lesson #5.

We can have the courage to realize we’re upset because we’re believing that God has left the building, and we’re on our own and separate. What we think we see as proof on the screen of life is actually our projection.

These teachings are just words until we’re willing to practice them.

Doing the actual practice is where the rubber meets the road, and we can actually get some traction.

As Wayne Dyer said (and I don’t know if he was first to say it) “It’s never crowded along the extra mile.” This is SO true. Lots of people will read books and listen to audios. That’s easy.

Doing the actual healing work is not easy. It’s not. It’s often intensely challenging, and that’s why the extra mile isn’t crowded.

Each one of us has to find the courage within ourselves to go from just talking about spirituality and collecting more information to actually having a spiritual practice that works. And that’s why I put my focus on the practice and supporting people in having an EFFECTIVE spiritual practice.

It’s so discouraging to be a spiritual student for years and years without much benefit. We’re capable of much more. Yet, it does take courage.

I’ve seen people with real courage having amazing results – blessing their families and their co-workers. That’s being TRULY helpful. It’s exciting. It’s a relief!

Do you have an effective spiritual practice? Please tell us about it and share in the comments below! Thank you!

Unconscious

Tuesday, August 27th, 2019

It’s so helpful to be come conscious about consciousness. A Course in Miracles tells us that consciousness is the first step in the experience of separation. It also tells us that there’s no such thing as unconsciousness. Whether we like to realize it or not, we’re always an active participants. We’re in the driver’s seat, even when we think we’re not.

I’m very familiar with how convenient it can seem to “just go unconscious,” but that’s a delusion we’re having in the context of the illusion. Just think how often we feel like we’d like to “tune out.” It’s often desirable to “zone out.”

What are we tuning out?

The noise, the stuff of life, the responsibilities, the drama and the trauma.

Are we tuning IN to anything when we’re tuning out?
Are we tuning in to Spirit when we’re tuning out the world?

I like to zone out and tune out, as well as tune in.

Usually when I zone out, I like to focus on something lovely or something that the Higher Holy Spirit Self can teach me through. Movies and TV are perfect for that – but not as much if we’re not consciously paying attention as we’re watching.

Sometimes we can even blame our unconscious pain, cravings, and aversions for overtaking us and controlling us – as if they have the power. But is that REALLY possible? It’s worth contemplating when we’re in the midst of it, to help us take back our power.

I know that when I’ve been tired and wished to tune out, I didn’t wish to contemplate anything. That was the last thing I wished to do. Now I’ve got the ability to stay conscious, and I’m grateful. When I stay conscious I stay loving. That’s a step in a healing direction, and it brings another healing step and another.

We can be willing to recognize our wanting and craving to go unconscious and give it to Spirit for healing. So much is possible for us – one choice at a time.

Please share your reflections on going unconscious and tuning out in the comments below!

Spiritual Counseling and ACIM

Tuesday, July 30th, 2019

In A Course in Miracles, Jesus asks us to help Him and become a Teacher of God. There’s one requirement to become a Teacher of God, and that is to have ever at one time felt united with another person and not separate from them. This way, we can all qualify.

I can honestly say that I feel my counseling clients have brought me at least as much benefit as I may have brought them, and probably even more. Probably even more than I realize.

The beautiful and magnificent people I’ve had the opportunity to work with over the past 19 years have helped me to heal my mind, open my heart and grow more in tune with Spirit. What a blessing!

I never imagined this would be possible or probable when I went into Spiritual Counseling training as student to become a Science of Mind Practitioner. I had no idea what I was saying yes to. Now, I am so grateful I followed my guidance and came down this path.

I have learned to love at the deepest levels because of my connections with the folks who have come to me for counseling.

The blessings are extraordinary and continue to radiate through my life every day.

I invite you to take a pause and consider how much benefit you have received because of opening your heart and mind to the people who have come to you and asked for support. Say a prayer and a blessing for them each time you think of them and your blessings will multiply! We are blessed AND we get to BE the blessing.

I’m going to share about this today in my podcast. I can’t wait!

Respect

Monday, July 29th, 2019

There is an intelligence that is in and through all people and all things, and we won’t be able to discern it, palpably discern it, until we’re willing to recognize it actually exists.

If you follow me on Facebook, then you may have noticed that I started doing the Medical Medium’s Liver Rescue Cleanse. I read the Medical Medium’s first book – at least, the parts that were relevant to me, and I really appreciated his tone and wisdom. Then, this Spring, I started getting this strong feeling to read his Liver Rescue book and follow the protocol. I’ve been doing the full cleanse for 16 days now, and the details of it I can save for another time.

Reading his Liver Rescue book, I realized that I’ve had some liver issues and I didn’t know it. I didn’t know it because I don’t drink much. I don’t have a sweet tooth, I have a savory tooth. But my intuition was strong to do this NOW. And I’m so glad I did.

A while back, a loved one was having bad allergies, and I shared that my friend, Cindy, had turned me on to the Medical Medium’s celery juice healing for allergies and it absolutely worked for her. I sent my loved one a few blogs and info on the celery juice cure and he said, “Jennifer, this guy keep saying things like ‘doctors don’t know this, but … why would I listen to this guy when no doctors are verifying his work?”

“Oh,” I thought, “that makes sense.” But it never occurred to me I would actually trust him more because doctors don’t verify his work. He’s an intuitive. I’m an intuitive. I know what I know when Spirit guides me to it, and that is a much stronger knowing than something a doctor might tell me.”

We can have disagreements. I respect my loved one and his preferences.

I don’t need to argue, convince, or disagree. His body, his choice. My body, my choice.

And to me, that’s Love and that’s being loving. It’s loving to accept someone as they are and not try to change them or their mind. It’s Self-loving to not be upset.

My loved one doesn’t need my help. He’ll find his way. He’ll learn what HE needs to learn and I am not in charge of that. That’s respect.

It’s arrogance, and disrespect to think that I know what’s better for another person – even though it may sometimes seem as though I do. It’s healthier for me to stay in Peace and calm, and just be grateful we can have a loving dialogue.

I place my trust and faith in Spirit and not in people’s opinions or preferences, and therein lies the Peace of God for me this day.

Can you relate? Who do you trust more: an intuitive like Medical Medium or a doctor? And why? Please share with me in the comments below!

Is it True?

Sunday, July 28th, 2019

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.

Everything that was so painful for me was my interpretation of my experience. It didn’t have to be painful. I did that to myself. That’s how I learned to ask, “Is this actually true?”

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 you might have been misled into thinking that your experiences are proving your beliefs, when, in fact, your experience is just proving the existence of your belief.

When we rid ourselves of the belief we rid ourselves of the experience.

Many, many times I’ve spoken with people who felt helpless and hopeless in their relationships, their jobs, their body. When they become willing to change their minds and actually make the effort, they experience miracles. It really works!

How do we change our minds?
How do we rid ourselves of the false beliefs?

This is the focus of all that I share.

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 and it seems very hard – I know, this was me for a very long time.

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. But if we do it 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.

In order to Love and cherish ourselves, we must be willing to do this work and let go of the past. It actually does work when we work it. When we work it, we realize we were never victims of the past. That was our interpretation. Everything is for us and nothing is against us when we see with Divine Eyes.

Now is the time for us to rise and shine and throw off these meaningless burdens of false beliefs!

Healing is easier than we 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!

If you’d like to some inspiration, check out my radio show episodes from the past two weeks: Healing the Mind About the Body Part 1 and Part 2.

Let’s make the most of every opportunity for our healing and awakening and remember to laugh when we forget. Every day I offer my shot of Spiritual Espresso. I write spiritual inspiration and record a prayer for our healing. Prayer is a power tool for our liberation. Pray with me today. The Prayer for Today is for Willingness to Awaken. We use technology to transcend time and space and deepen our spiritual practice and connect with each other. Our spiritual practice is our path of liberation. And that’s beautiful to share!

We’re all on a journey of relinquishing the blocks to Love and there is so much help for us in the invisible. We are never alone. I Love you and I thank God for you. We bless each other with our willingness to rise in Spirit and come back into our right minds. Together we truly are answering our call to BE the Love. YES!

Spirit In Charge

Saturday, July 27th, 2019

When it feels like there’s no way, Spirit can still make a way.
When it feels like only failure is possible, Spirit can still succeed.
When it feels like all is lost, Spirit can show us what’s valuable.
In God, all things worth doing, having and being are always possible.

When we’re feeling hopeless and helpless, then we’ve left God out of the equation, and that’s the real reason that we feel so down and desperate. We can say we think that we feel despair because of what’s happening in the world, but our upset is really because we’re not allowing Spirit to lead us, guide us, and direct us. And we can change our mind. We can go the other way.

When we’re willing to put Spirit in charge, then everything changes.

It can seem that we don’t want change. It can feel as if change is a threat and a worry. We can fear change because we can’t control it, but the fact is that we can’t control anything, so let’s not fool ourselves anymore.

We can look to the world for examples – at some of the most “powerful” people in the world and see how they try so hard to control things, and no matter how much “power and influence” they have, they still can’t control things to go their way.

In truth, there’s only one way, and that way is God’s Way. Let’s all get off the “pain train” and jump on board the Love Train. Let’s not wait until the pain is squeezing us so hard we just wish we were dead.

Let’s simply put Spirit in charge and allow the miracles to unfold. Let’s get out of the way.

And let’s get on with it, and do what we’re here to do – Love ourselves and each other.
“Wherever [the Holy Spirit] looks He sees Himself, and because He is united He offers the whole Kingdom always. This is the one message God gave to Him and for which He must speak, because that is what He is. The peace of God lies in that message, and so the peace of God lies in you. The great peace of the Kingdom shines in your mind forever, but it must shine outward to make you aware of it.A Course in Miracles, T-6.II.12.

Let’s join together to shine the light outward in order to see it more clearly!

Changes

Friday, July 26th, 2019

It’s amazing how our values change over the years. Each person’s journey is individual and unique. When I was younger I was so interested in glamour, excitement, travel, rock and roll and improving life through making beautiful art.

Now I’d rather not travel, but that’s what Spirit’s got me doing. Nothing is more exciting to me than helping someone having a breakthrough or having my own transcendent experience. Nothing is actually glamorous to me anymore. I still love rock and roll, but it has a different place in my life now.

When I was younger, the most important things to me were my own success. I wanted to be impressive, remarkable and special. I wanted to get recognition. Now I can see that was to compensate for how especially bad I felt at that time. Much of the time now, I’m so happy to go unrecognized and unnoticed. I like to put on what I think of as my “Harry Potter cloaking device” and glide through the gym, the grocery store, or down the street without even being seen.

I LOVE when Spirit is brilliant through me and as me, and I can feel the Beauty of perfect Love Intelligence live-streaming in my being. And I don’t take credit. Most of the ideas I have don’t feel like my ideas. They feel like downloads. A gift from Heaven.

I used to love living in New York. I was a resident of Manhattan for 10 years. Now, I am happiest out in the country, somewhere near a small town, but not actually in it.

I used to play music all day long, and now the best music is the sweet songs of the birds. They feed my soul. My preferences in most things have changed.

Growing up in Rhode Island, we said, “In New England, if you don’t like the weather, wait a minute.” It’s always changing.

They say people never change.

I’ve changed so completely I can barely relate to who I used to think I was and what I used to think about. I’m so grateful I can change and do change!

That’s the thing about this world, everything changes.

What are the changes you’re grateful for in your life?

Extending Compassion

Monday, July 1st, 2019

I have written about this several times because it was such a “thing” for me and I’m so glad it’s not anymore. I used to have an aversion to people who were anxious and nervous and worried. I felt as though they could possibly transmit their fear to me and that I’d catch it – and I didn’t want it.

Of course, anyone who is paying attention can tell who is afraid and who isn’t. The bully seems tough, but deep down they are FAR more terrified than the person who appears nervous. The person who seems angry and pushy is acting from deep-seated fear.

Now, I can see that the feeling of aversion to other people’s worry and fear was that I already had plenty of my own and I didn’t want to take on anymore. To me, feeling afraid was a failure. Back then, I’d rather have experienced many difficulties than let anyone know I felt fear.

Now I can feel the fear and hand it over to the Higher Holy Spirit Self and move on. I’m not afraid of fear anymore.

I feel so grateful that I can ever be of assistance to someone who is feeling afraid or worried. If you meet someone who is anxious, I encourage you to do what you can to support them. Sometimes it’s best to simply pray silently and send a smile.

I remember ten years ago, when I was on a silent Vipassana retreat for 10 days, and one of the women in my bunk house (there were something like 11 of us) was in her late 20’s. We weren’t supposed to look at other people. We were to keep our gaze inward and focused on our own awareness, but it was difficult not to notice this young woman was crying a lot. She was really processing a lot of guilt and shame, or so it seemed to me.

At one point, I looked at her when she was crying and seeming to be quite miserable with herself, and I simply winked. I winked to let her know, “This too shall pass.” It was a small gesture, but I meant it with a great deal of Love and support. At the end of the ten days of silent meditation, she told me that it had meant a lot to her.

Spirit guides us.
All the time.

We get nudges to say or do something, and sometimes it seems out of character or out of step but I’ve learned to do it anyway.

I’d rather listen to Spirit and be in tune with that Voice than listen to the ego and be in lockstep with it’s endless demands.

What is the intuitive nudge that you’ve been getting that you’re not listening to? Will you be willing to follow your intuition today? It’s the perfect time to do something new! Tomorrow is the new moon!

Feelings

Friday, May 10th, 2019

I studied the teachings of Ernest Holmes for many years in my training to become a Science of Mind Practitioner and Minister. One of the helpful things I took from Holmes’ teachings is the difference between feelings and emotions. It’s valuable for us to understand the difference between when we’re having an emotional response or reaction and when we’re experiencing a feeling.

I’ve had so much experience being an emotional drama queen – mostly being angry and argumentative. It was such a miserable way to live. I was the cause of my own unhappiness being critical and complaining constantly. It was as though I felt God had died and left me in charge of judging everything!

I became afraid of my emotions, and anger was the only one that felt safe to me. Anger is actually an emotional protective device. When I realized that I could learn to have trust and place my faith in Spirit, when I began to really practice BEING loving, that’s when my emotional life changed profoundly. I stopped having to stuff my emotional baggage and hide it.

I learned the power of feeling my emotions without stoking those fires, but simply learning to observe them without giving into them.

I have had so much healing through allowing myself to experience my emotions and letting them be expressed rather than holding them in to fester and ferment. Now it feels safer and safer for me to have my emotions and allow them to go through me. I can now easily realize that they’re not who I am.

I used to feel so intensely upset by things. Now, that is rare. It’s all because of my spiritual practice of nonjudgment and forgiveness. Nowadays I am MUCH more aware of feelings. I feel peaceful, harmonious, free, joyous. I experience much of my intuition as feelings, which are quite different from emotions.

For me, often the still, small Voice is a still small feeling. Feelings are often delicate, where emotions can be clunky and dramatic.

It’s been deeply healing for me to cultivate the feelings that I’d like to experience. We can cultivate Peace, Harmony, Joy and Freedom. We can cultivate the feeling of Abundance and Wholeness. These spiritual qualities have vibrational matches that we can feel, and we can cultivate them and attune to them. It just takes practice and willingness.

When you’re vibrating with the “frequency” of Love or Abundance, because like attracts like, you’ll be attracting more experiences of Love and Abundance into your life. It’s really not rocket science.

If you’re willing, Spirit will lead you and guide you. It’s your birthright. Go for it!

Inheritance

Saturday, April 27th, 2019

A Course in Miracles helps us to heal our mind of insanity by cultivating sanity and by recognizing the insanity and seeing that we have choice.

“This is an insane world, and do not underestimate the extent of its insanity. There is no area of your perception that it has not touched.”
Let’s just say, for a minute, that the entire world is insane, and that we, too, have lost our perspective (ACIM says pain is a wrong perspective) and we’ve fallen way down the rabbit hole. From deep inside the rabbit hole we decide, “I could choose Peace instead of this.”

It’s like the moment when the Prodigal Son, having wandered off into a far land, squandering his inheritance with high living and pursuit of pleasure, finds himself living on a pig farm and realizing that the pigs eat better than he does. In the lowness of that moment, the Prodigal Son realizes that he would have a better life as a servant in his father’s house. He decides to head home where, as we all know, he’s greeted with a wonderful welcome, open arms, celebration and Joy!

Although he “squandered” his inheritance, this is not an issue for his parents who are so grateful he has returned.

Our Mother-Father God’s Kingdom is Infinite Abundance, and no matter how much we have squandered, our return home is celebrated with Joy.

It’s that decision to return home, to be a servant in our Mother-Father God’s house that means so much. The Prodigal Son’s decision is the turning point in his journey. His decision is the thing that ends the madness and starts the journey home to happiness.

Now, when he returns, he knows that he is truly loved and accepted. There’s no condition to his parents’ Love. The Son has been on a journey and seen and experienced many things. He can now appreciate how wonderful it is at home and be content there.

As soon as we’re ready to head home, we can make that decision and the Higher Holy Spirit Self will do the rest. We can rest our mind in the Spirit and our life becomes so much easier. And that’s a return to sanity!

I’m heading home – I’m on my way. I’m glad we’re traveling together – your companionship makes the trip so much sweeter! Thank you!

Professional Trainings Are Coming!

This October, I’ll be offering another Teacher Training for those who wish to learn How to Lead & Create A Workshop, including certification to teach my Forgive & Be Free Workshop.

Forward

Friday, April 26th, 2019

Things are changing super fast now. We are so blessed with the constant changing we see in the world. The ego/personality would like to latch onto things and keep them the same – or travel back in time. The ego thinks that “Things were better when ….” — fill in that blank.

I don’t wish to go back. Not a minute, not a day. There are many a choice I’ve made that I can see was not the most loving, not the most well thought out choice. There have been millions of choices where I could’ve, should’ve, would’ve, if only.

I’ve trained myself to stop looking back, and I really don’t reminisce much at all. I evaluate how I can do things better, but I don’t ruminate on them. I don’t judge myself for my errors, but I do wish to learn from them. I can’t learn from my errors if I’m judging myself for having made them, this I know.

We can train ourselves to interrupt the patterns of drifting into the past and looking for mistakes. It’s really not helpful. It’s far more valuable to look for the opportunities that are right NOW and/or coming right up.

I’m at the point where I can see that there’s an underlying perfection. A Divine Order that’s inescapable. A Course in Miracles tells us that God’s Will is our will. There is no separate will. Only One life, One mind, One will. And, therefore, there’s noting to fear, because God’s Will is always for us.

God’s Will is our salvation.

Even if we have deep hidden fears that God is out to get us, we can rise above them and let them dissolve and resolve permanently by choosing to affirm that everything is for us and nothing is against us. I have found this to be very valuable.

When I’m surfing the changing and shifting energies and circumstances, I hold fast to God’s will in my mind and then I feel blessed, no matter what comes.

I’ve been willing to accept that even in the things I think I do not want and would like to avoid, there’s a blessing in there for me. All of life contains a blessing for me. Nothing is against me as long as I’m not against anyone or anything.

I’m for the loving expressions that bring change.

I seek not to change the world, but to change my mind about it.

I let Spirit do the heavy lifting.
And I rely upon the kindness of everyone I encounter to help me keep my balance!

Sacrifice

Monday, April 15th, 2019

I used to pray for changes in my life that I wasn’t actually willing to accept, because my consciousness wasn’t there yet. It’s a pretty common thing with spiritual students, and it’s a form of self-sabotage.

When we pray for Abundance, but we’re still habitually believing and affirming that lack and limitation are “real,” then our mind is going to absolutely block the flow of Abundance in our life.

When we’re convinced that Abundance and Prosperity are something that comes to us from the world rather than the truth, which is that they are spiritual qualities that are omnipresent and omni-active, then we’re going to be looking for something to change in the world rather than in our mind. But that’s not how spiritual law works.

We can say we “know” that we must change our mind in order for the world to change, but if we’re still trying to change the world, then we don’t know it at all. The truth is just words that we can remember and quote, but the truth is not awake in our mind.

Until we live in a way that demonstrates we KNOW the truth we’re operating from our belief system, and we will continue to see the world demonstrating and affirming our beliefs rather than the truth.

All beliefs are false.

All beliefs are an interpretation.

All beliefs are limiting.

All beliefs perpetuate lack.

Truth is liberating, because it’s an expression of Love which helps us to remember that our true nature is also Love. When we choose to align with Love, then we’re aligning with Abundance and Prosperity.

When we’ve carefully constructed our life around our beliefs, it can seem like a sacrifice to give them up. Yet, to have Love is no sacrifice. Peace is no sacrifice. Love and Peace are everything.

We choose false beliefs or we choose truth. We decide for lack or for Abundance. We are the ones who choose. Therein lies our Peace of mind.

I haven’t offered my Finding Freedom From Fear spiritual boot camp class in six months, but I’m thinking of offering it soon. I’m thinking of doing something special next time I offer it so that people can do the class with a friend or family member, as there is definitely strength in joining with a partner. If you’d like to be on the waiting list so you can join me next time I offer it, you can go here to sign up for the waiting list and I’ll keep you posted.

New Moon

Friday, April 5th, 2019

The beginning of the Spring is the perfect time to do a New Moon ceremony. New Moon represents the time to plant new seeds of our healing, awakening and spiritual expansion. We can draw a line in the cosmic sands and make a new beginning. We can stop looking back, because we’re not going that way.

It may seem crazy, but the mental/emotional shift that turns the tide of upset is to be grateful for things as they are. Our gratitude raises our vibration so that we can see, hear, feel and know more clearly the learning and benefit that’s encoded into every single thing in our lives. From this place, we can set our intentions and plant seeds for the upcoming month to bring forth great benefit for ourselves and others.

Now is the time of new beginnings! When we’re actively intending to bring benefit, and to be truly helpful we’re shining our light in ways that are expansive. We’re worth the investment of our attention.

And after the crazy “energetic weather” we’ve been having in the last 10 days – this New Moon will probably bring some activation and some release!

New Moon is for increasing our willingness to let the past go, and to have new experiences of Love and Light.

New Moon is also a fun time to have a ceremony, especially the first new moon of the new season. It’s like a rebirthing.

Right now, when so much changing is going on – a ceremony can be something helpful to shift the energy and welcome the healing changes! Today or tomorrow, gather loved ones, friends and family to make it a Harvest & Release celebration!

I begin with gratitude, and then being clear about why I’m doing what I’m doing.

I appreciate starting with setting of intention.
I intend to affirm what I’m calling forth, what I’m willing to receive, what I’d like to experience more of, and what I’m willing to release. “Release and replace” is always a good plan.

Light a white candle
Have a glass of water beside you as you make your intentions and set your goals.

Focus on how you’d like to feel one month from now.
You can consecrate your space with offerings of smudge and prayer.

It’s powerful to write it all down. If you have friends with you, you may wish to share what you’ve written specifically or generally. No pressure on that. Make it a safe space.

It’s nice to have a fire to place the offerings of what you’ve written – a fire puja is always lovely – offering prayers to the fire as well as any writing – offer it all! You can do that in a backyard fire pit, fireplace or a burning bowl. I love that part!

Open your heart to what you’d like to call into your life. Set your intention for expansion and clarity, purity and joy – what you’d like to experience this season! I always focus on how I’d like to feel and am careful not to get attached to how things show up in form. Focus on what the feeling is.

More prayer, chanting, dancing, having a meal – these are all wonderful. Dance to celebrate your willingness to have a healing! May your release be complete and your heart be cleared for lift-off!

All of our prayers are blessed. What are the seeds you are planting in your heart? Please share what you are claiming in the comments section below!

Courage to Heal

Tuesday, February 26th, 2019

In my Spiritual Espresso yesterday, I was talking about developing the courage to heal and I’ll be sharing with Corinne Zupko about this tomorrow on my radio show too. This topic is core to my life and being because I’ve been able to reclaim my life from fear and doubt.

It takes a strength of heart to be able to choose healing, because most of us are afraid to really go for it. Only a willingness from the heart to actually BE healed, not just to relieve the suffering and pain, but to walk in the healed state, will bring the strength needed.

It’s not that it takes so much, it takes so little, but that little bit of willingness to really be living in this world healed at the level of the mind is enough to call forth the transformation.

Healing is always available to us. No matter how far down we think we’ve fallen, we’ve always got a way out if we choose it.

Healing is the one ability everyone can develop and must develop if he is to be healed. ~ A Course in Miracles

Today on my radio show, I’ll be talking with my dear, sweet and brilliant friend, Corinne Zupko who is so inspiring to me. Corinne is the author of From Anxiety to Love: A Radical New Approach for Letting Go of Fear and Finding Lasting Peace

Courage is taking action from the heart not just overcoming fear.

Healing happens when we have courage because we’re not just looking to end our pain, we’re looking to make a gain!

This is a key point to understand. If all we’re looking to do is end our pain, that’s not the same as choosing to live a loving life. If all we’re looking to do is end our suffering, that’s really an ego goal. Our suffering is self-imposed, regardless of how it looks.

Healing happens when we forgive. We must forgive ourselves for imposing the suffering upon our selves. We must remember to laugh, but how?

The HOW is none of our business. We learn to ALLOW Spirit to make it so.

Will you ALLOW the healing that you desire? Your willingness is all that’s required.

Lack

Sunday, January 27th, 2019

I started off in the New Thought teachings of Unity in 1986 when I began attending Sunday services with Eric and Olga Butterworth at Lincoln Center. I was living in Manhattan at the time, on West 98th Street and Broadway. My friend, Marie, and I would walk down to Lincoln Center together. It could be really cold in the winter, but it was a great way to start the day.

Eric Butterworth was a clear and beautiful teacher of truth. I so appreciate all the many realizations I had while listening to him. I remember he used to say so often, “God can only do for you what He can do through you.” Eric was a great teacher of Prosperity, but what many folks seemed to miss is that the healing of separation-thinking comes through eliminating poverty consciousness.

Poverty consciousness is the belief in lack and limitation. All thoughts of separation are fundamentally poverty consciousness. It’s the result of being convinced that we are separate from God that leads to our experiences of lack and limitation.

We may say we know that “our thought precedes the thing”, that our thinking makes things manifest, but we nonetheless continue to try to heal the problem by doing things differently in the world rather than to have a healing at the level of the mind. If we operate that way long enough, we conclude that life is not for us and things are against us, but that doesn’t mean it’s true.

One of the things that we work on all year in Masterful Living is becoming aware of the constant stream of lack and limitation thinking. I’ve been working to eliminate it for a long time, and it’s brought me TREMENDOUS benefit. I used to really struggle with a sense of lack. I used to feel angry at all the seeming limitations that people wanted to put on me. I had no idea that it was all coming from inside. Like in one of those horror movies where the killer is inside the building, the killer of fun, Joy, Prosperity, Peace, Harmony and Love was inside my mind.

A common way that we reinforce a sense of separation is to put all the good and rewards in the future. When the good is always in the future, we’re always separate from experiencing it. When our good is a fantasy, then we’re just as far from it.

A Course in Miracles tells us not to seek for Love, but to seek within ourselves to find the blocks that we’ve put against Love. Truly, the faster path is to give the block to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing every time it is felt. Yes, you may have blocks that are very intense and strong, but that may just mean it will take you giving it to the HHSS 500 times before you are more sincere than insincere. Begin today, don’t delay.

It always seems too simple to say that our willingness is ALL that’s required, but it’s our willfulness to block the Love that put the block in place. Spirit can remove it quickly, if we’re truly willing to let it go.

It may seem strange, but one of the best ways to reduce the sense of separation is to make a firm commitment to stop energizing lack and limitation. And to help us do that, be completely willing to recognize all the thoughts of lack and limitation. Start writing them down. Make a list. At the top of the list write:

“These are the things I’m giving to Spirit for healing. I’m done with them. I’m done experiencing them. I am choosing to move on. I am choosing Love instead. Spirit please take these out of my mind so I never think them again:”

Then make your list.
Put them in a notebook.
Take notes in your phone.
Be willing to really make an effort.
Remember, this process costs you nothing. It’s free.

On the other hand, belief in lack and limitation, and feeling like a victim, will drain your life away. They’re extremely debilitating and depressing.

And speaking of depression. ACIM tell us this: “Depression comes from a sense of being deprived of something you want and do not have. Remember that you are deprived of nothing except by your own decisions, and then decide otherwise.”

Again, depression is the RESULT of lack and limitation thinking.

Be willing to contemplate what you feel deprived of, and then be bold and declare that you’re responsible and you’re now done. You’re willing to let the Spirit do all the heavy lifting of removing the thoughts from your mind. Be willing to be done.

If you’re not done with your depression yet, set a date. Tell the Higher Holy Spirit Self that is the day you’ll be done and start to energize it. Count down the days. Make a pact with Spirit. YOU are the decider. No one else can decide for you. You ARE the one you’ve been waiting for.

One other simple thing that has helped me to shift out of the poverty consciousness is this simple 4 word affirmation:

There is no lack.

God is all.
God is complete.
Nothing is missing.
Nothing can be added to God and nothing can be taken away.
Lack is a false construct that has no power. I’m over it.
I am choosing Love instead.
Spirit please take these out of my mind so I never think them again.
Thank you!

As Eric Butterworth said, “The goal should not be to make money or acquire things, but to achieve the consciousness through which the substance will flow forth when and as you need it.”

We are not victims of circumstances, and experiences.
We are the Light of the world and we can shine that Light anytime we choose.
So much healing is available to us if we’re willing to receive it.

There is a great healing unfolding for us this springSpring Clearing Retreat with Jon Mundy, Lisa Natoli, Corinne Zupko and more. March 20 to 24 in the Catskills Mountains of NY. Also, just prior to that Jon and I will reprise our How to Create & Lead A Workshop back to back with the retreat – dates are March 14 to 20.

I will not be threatened!

Sunday, January 20th, 2019

I don’t know about you, but I’ve felt intense rage all because I’ve felt threatened. I’ve felt rage and directed it at myself, at my loved ones, and at strangers. When the wound is deep enough, people can’t handle it anymore. Rage is a form of insanity.

The violence of this world is often the result of people who feel the same as I used to feel. –a seething rage deep down. They’re feeling like a victim and acting out. Haven’t we all felt powerless, inadequate, ashamed, hurt and afraid? If it’s not addressed, it festers and ferments until it becomes rage that explodes. People often have no concept that healing is available to them.

Consider that people without a spiritual practice will generally feel that there’s nothing that can be done about their feelings. There are people in my life that have no real spiritual practice, and are not looking at their life from a spiritual perspective, and they are 100% convinced that life is happening TO them. They don’t have a concept that they could change their perspective and feel differently about themselves and their lives.

This is precisely why what we’re doing, working at the level of the mind, is so critical to the healing of ALL humanity.

For a moment, let’s consider how we talk about anger. We say things like:

He’s mad at them.

I’m mad AT them.

It sounds like shouting at, throwing something at.

Sometimes we say: They make me so mad.

They MAKE me.

Can you feel how our language and thought can be focused on being separate and being a victim or an attacker? “They make me so angry” and “ He’s mad at them” are the kind of thinking that we — you and I — are here to heal.

The fastest path I know of to healing this human insanity of victim and attacker, which is what terrorism is all about, is taking total responsibility for what you see and what you experience. 0% blame, 100% responsibility.

If you feel angry about ANYTHING, you’re probably also afraid about something, and underneath that fear is usually some deep sense of hurt or betrayal. The fear underneath the anger is usually because we haven’t recovered from some past hurt or betrayal, and we’re still holding onto judgment about what happened (remembered or not remembered) and we’re afraid of being hurt or betrayed again – we’re afraid of being poked again in an unhealed wound.

I’m willing to admit that I’ve intentionally tried to hurt or wound people because I felt threatened by them. In my past, there were times when my ego was convinced best defense was a good offense. Unfortunately, it’s not true. Fortunately, I learned from it and have forgiven myself.

The teaching about responsibility is essential to our waking up and living a joyful life, AND it is absolutely unacceptable to the ego. The ego will reject it every time. Consider this:

“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.” ~ A Course in Miracles

If you think about the great spiritual teachers who have led many to healing in their own heart and mind, and those who have inspired us, they all teach taking responsibility.

Responsibility is very different from blame. For me, taking responsibility necessarily includes realizing that there’s something for me to learn. I have a willingness to learn, and I have an ability to learn. I can learn and grow and bring benefit to all – that’s the motivation for taking responsibility.

It helps to remember what it says early on in ACIM: “Nothing real can be threatened.”

We are of God, we cannot be threatened. Why?
Because there’s nothing OUTSIDE of or in addition to God that could threaten me.
All threats come from within and are projected outwards, and this is why we can transform our experience by healing at the level of the mind. Responsibility is RESPONSE-ability and it is the key to no longer feeling threatened.

I will not be threatened anymore! Enough of that insanity!

We’re in a world where the curriculum is about learning the difference between total responsibility and blame. The difference IS our liberation.

The ends is in the means. The means to a peaceful world is Peace. Peace IS the way. If we would like to live in a peaceful world, we must be willing to be peaceful. We cannot help by looking at the world and being mad AT them or thinking they MADE us angry. The only way the world can heal is if we heal the habit of blame. There’s nothing loving about blaming.

In the simplest human interactions where there’s a sense of upset, when people can take responsibility for their part in it, then compassion flows, forgiveness flows, judgment dissolves, the walls of separation come down.

If the world frightens you – take responsibility for your part in it. Be willing to look very carefully around your life to where you are terrorizing your self. Look deeply into that and heal that in yourself – it will shift the world.

Anger is a cry for Love. Compassion is the only healing answer. When you feel angry, train yourself to go right to self-compassion. As your mind heals, the world around you will heal. You’ll be amazed at the difference in your family, your workplace, and your life. Go for it!

This is how we actively change the world by changing our mind about the world. Let’s practice together today, and be truly helpful!

Let me know what you’re interested in and take my latest survey – it’s only about 1 minute of your time or less!

Healing Is A Collaborative Adventure

Wednesday, January 16th, 2019

Yesterday, I had the good fortune to have a conversation with Jon Mundy on my Radio Show.  We were talking about the Power of Decision which is a potent teaching in A Course in Miracles that I did 3 episodes on back in 2017 and Jon’s got a new class coming up on the topic. I find this topic extremely inspiring for us as we’re starting off in this new year.

I Love A Course in Miracles! I find the teachings bring me great comfort and upliftment.

With having done nearly 380 episodes of my radio show, I’m still amazed at how inspired I am by A Course in Miracles. I never tire of the truth. It’s so liberating. I love that every time I pick up A Course in Miracles I find a treasure that is so familiar and another one that is less well known to me. It is the gift that keeps on giving.

What a great gift that blue book is. Filled with treasures.

The simplest statements carry so much power and Peace.

If you’re ever struggling to understand some part of it – or even to open it, then just ask Spirit to show you the way. That’s what Spirit is for.

One thing that Jesus tells is that’s so comforting is that we’re never alone. He’s always with us. Always. We can pretend we’re alone, but we never will be. Why pretend when it doesn’t make us happy?

He also tells us that we don’t even know what will make us happy so we can just stop thinking that we do.

Such practical advice!

And he offers us constant support if we will but lean upon him. Test it. Try it out. What have you got to lose?

Next time you feel alone, or bereft, or perhaps you wake up with a sense of dread, call out to Jesus and ask him to let you know that he’s with you and that you’re not alone.

The gift is when we can share the Light with others, when we can be of service to the Light, then our Light really shines! It lights us up from the inside!

“Do you not think the world needs peace as much as you do? Do you not want to give it to the world as much as you want to receive it? For unless you do, you will not receive it. If you want to have it of me, you must give it. Healing does not come from anyone else. You must accept guidance from within. The guidance must be what you want, or it will be meaningless to you. That is why healing is a collaborative venture. I can tell you what to do, but you must collaborate by believing that I know what you should do. Only then will your mind choose to follow me. Without this choice you could not be healed because you would have decided against healing, and this rejection of my decision for you makes healing impossible.” A Course in Miracles T-8.IV.4.

The ego often doesn’t like to be a follower, are you willing to follow the guidance of an ascended master who can see through all directions of time and space, whose consciousness is so clear that his life has inspired billions of people?

ACIM is both practical and lofty. That those two qualities can perfectly co-exist and in iambic pentameter. Sweet!

A Course in Miracles offers us the way to Peace in our own lives and Peace in the world. At a time when it seems like there’s a tremendous amount of insanity erupting in the world, let us focus on being the Peace we’d like to see in the world by changing our mind about the world. In this way we can be truly helpful.

Take Out the Trash

Saturday, January 12th, 2019

Sometimes it feels like we’re so far away from where we’d like to be that we feel overwhelmed. Life can feel like a big trash heap. It can feel as though its impossible, especially when there’s a combination of things, such as illness, debt, depression, relationship challenge, loss of a loved one, and even more. Some people seem to have all of them at once.

In those times of overwhelm, when it seems like anything and everything is working against you, that is a time of great opportunity. I cannot emphasize this enough: If you’re willing, in the time of greatest challenge, Spirit can move a mountain, if you ALLOW it. You DO have to be a very willing participant, but you, yourself, do not have to move the mountain. However, without your allowing and calling it forth, the mountain will not be moved. And this is where I’ve seen people transform their lives.

I used to feel stuck and overwhelmed by how I felt about my life and myself. I didn’t see how I could ever make the changes that I wanted made. It felt like too big a mountain for little old crazy me.

At that time, I was daily struck down by my failures and seeming incompetency. I was surviving, but that wasn’t enough for me. I wanted more and I couldn’t figure out how to unlock the door.

True spiritual growth felt so elusive to me.
I felt discouraged.
It felt so hard.

That’s when I learned the amazing power of a true desire to know Spirit. I decided to put ALL of my focus and attention in my life on looking for the opportunities to be loving and kind to myself and others. I decided to find the way to God through being aligned with Spirit, through the activity of being loving and BECOMING willing to let go of my unloving thoughts.

I became vigilant for becoming willing by being willing to be willing to be willing. It really worked for me.

I became willing to GIVE to the Higher Holy Spirit Self everything that didn’t serve me. I didn’t know how to take out the trash in my mind, but I did learn how to give it away.

The miracle is, that what doesn’t serve us that we’re willing to let go of, Spirit will take from us. Spirit WILL do the heavy lifting. And that makes it so much easier.

Instead of trying to figure out how to move the mountain, ask Spirit and then ALLOW it to be done.

Focus on your willingness to let the past go.
Focus on your willingness to look for and make the loving choices.

God can move the mountain, but only if we’re willing. Only if YOU are willing will it work.

Quit complaining, criticizing and manipulating.
Look for opportunities to demonstrate your willingness to let it go.
It works!

And it’s so much easier than trying to figure out how to let it go.
Focus on the willingness, and Spirit will do the heavy lifting.

Willingness is central to an effective spiritual practice.
An effective spiritual practice is a mental trash removal system that works.

If you feel that you’ve been playing small in any way, I’d love to support you in breaking free of that. If you’re feeling called to do this work with me, please trust that and allow Spirit to provide what is needed so that you can answer the call you’re feeling. We can do this together!

Changing our lives and healing our minds is so much easier when we are the two or more gathered together for the same purpose. We practice and learn Self-Love in Spiritual Community and it’s a powerful healing experience. It’s a living, loving, beautiful expression of Spirit’s Love.

You’re going to make a lot of choices this year.

Which of YOUR choices will actually improve the quality of every day for the rest of your life?

We’re entitled to miracles. One of the things I love so much about my Masterful Living Course is how excited people get when they realize they can stop repeating the past and life a life they really enjoy – it’s miraculous. People sometimes think that living a miraculous life is for other people, but not for them. People think that miracles are only for people who are special. It’s just not true.

Guilt Is Sabotage

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

Some people use the threat of guilt as a motivator. Some use guilt to keep them playing small and avoid taking risks. Guilt itself is self-sabotage.

One of the debilitating side effects of self-sabotaging with self-medication is feeling guilty. We’ve talked about it a little this week in the 5 Day Challenge to End Self Sabotage.

I’ve talked with many folks who don’t fully enjoy their life because they feel it would be selfish and they’d feel guilty. Many people even feel guilty just for taking care of themselves – as though good self-care somehow is putting themselves first, which is bad and wrong.

The guilty mind punishes again and again. Self-punishment is a strong motivator for many people, and it keeps them in a loop, like a hamster on a wheel, repeating a limited and unhappy existence. It is our destiny to live a joyful life, and A Course in Miracles is the mind-training to help us get there!

It’s interesting how many people believe they *should feel guilty for taking care of themselves. One of the biggest challenges I see at work, in many people’s minds, is this belief that “it’s better to give than to receive”. How could that be true when there is only One? It’s insanity. The only place to give to is Spirit, and the only place to receive from is Spirit. How could giving be better than receiving? It’s so important, and valuable, and healing, and nourishing to be receptive to Spirit’s guidance and flow of Love. Without that, we wither and die, literally!

The ego thought system is in diabolically opposition to itself. The ego believes that taking care of yourself is selfish, which is bad and wrong. The ego believes that we’re supposed to give, and give, and give, and give in order to get the Love, approval, attention and affection that we want and need. We end up believing that we have to give, and give, and give in order to earn Love, thereby reinforcing the idea that we’re separate from Love.

The ego believes that others are selfish, bad and wrong if they don’t appreciate all that we’re giving to them. They should reciprocate by giving us everything that we need. It’s all lunacy. Time for a healing!

When we don’t take good care of ourselves, when we over-give and give in order to get something back, then we’re going to feel depleted, and it’s not because someone made us or we did it for someone else. Over-giving to depletion is a choice that is a form of self-sabotage, and it’s time for us to let it go! We over-give because we believe in lack. Over-giving is an affirmation of lack.

Spiritual students often believe that suffering and martyrdom are somehow holy. Suffering and martyrdom are the OPPOSITE of holy. Suffering and martyrdom are pure ego.

It’s our responsibility to take good care of ourselves, and keep our wellspring of energy, radiance and luminosity full. There are no extra points for running on empty. No one can do this for us – this is ours to do. If you feel guilty taking good care of yourself, consider this: If you live in service to the Light, then everything you do to make sure you are a brightly shining Light brings benefit to all. It’s not selfish to take good care of yourself, it’s another act of service to the Light!

What can you do today to care for yourself with excellence? Love is the healer and self-care is healing! The most healing thing I know is an effective spiritual practice, which always includes Self-Love!

Willing To Be Willing

Thursday, January 3rd, 2019

About 20 years ago, on New Year’s Eve, I made up my mind to be “unbotherable”. I’m not there yet, but that’s my goal. I get closer every day. It’s such a good goal to have.

With being “unbotherable” as my goal, I can make progress every day. I can be successful every day. Each time I’m bothered, I can turn around the cause of my upset by giving it to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing. Every day has become a healing day.

People often don’t bother to set REAL aspirations, intentions and goals because it feels like it’s a fantasy that will never happen. “Why put attention on something where I’ll just be left wanting and not having? Why bother?”

Yet, what life has taught me is that, if I hold my aspirations, intentions and goals high in front of me, like a beacon of light pointing the way WITHOUT needing, wanting, grasping and craving, then they will become made manifest, if they’re for my highest and best.

This is why in Finding Freedom and Masterful Living we make a Contract with our Higher Self about our aspirations, intentions and goals. They become the direction we’re headed, and Spirit charts the trajectory as I was talking about in New Year’s Reboot Class the other day about course correction.

We set an aspiration, intention or goal the way that NASA decides to send a rocket to the moon – or China – and in order to meet the goal, they have to course correct all the way in order to factor in all the different things that affect the rocket along its trajectory.

A Course in Miracles tells us in Lesson 135 that “a healed mind does not plan.” which means we let Spirit guide us – we can have what we would call “a plan,” like I have a plan to finish writing this Spiritual Espresso. However, we release all attachment to it. We let Spirit guide us.

People don’t trust Spirit, so they don’t allow themselves to feel, hear, see, know the guidance that they’re getting. As a Spiritual Counselor for 18 years, I’ve talked with countless people who would like to receive Spirit’s guidance but, in truth, they are intensely afraid of being guided to do something they don’t want to do.

This is precisely why ACIM tells us that our willingness is all that’s required. Are you REALLY willing to follow the guidance? Let’s look at that and decide. Let’s make the highest decision we can this day, this moment, this year.

I have often learned the grace of being “willing to be willing”. And even the power in being “willing to be willing to be willing”. A little bit will take us all the way!

TODAY is my Sacred Circle day! This is my monthly membership program that gives you a weekly call of group spiritual counseling. Join my Sacred Circle and you can ask me any question you would like on the phone, on line or in writing! I love it! We have an awesome group of people who are doing the deep work!

Spiritual Renewal

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019

Yesterday I offered my New Year’s Reboot class, and afterward someone said that it was “high octane fuel.” Doing spiritual practice now is such a powerful and fun way to start the new year. I love it!

The more I travel this road of life, the more profoundly grateful I am for an effective spiritual practice. This is one of the things I was sharing about in the radio show yesterday on Rebirth & Renewal. Spiritual practice revives, restores and renews. It affords us an opportunity for rebirth on a spiritual level.

What could be more refreshing and reviving than being able to let go of the baggage of painful wounds of the past?

One thing I shared is that the old painful, long-held resentments, regrets, guilt, blame, shame, jealousy, anger, anxiety, doubt and fear of the past are a drain on the whole system.

It’s much like if you have a computer that is running dozens of software programs all at once. All your computers’ RAM is being used by having all those open programs. So then, you don’t have the capacity to deal with minor issues and upset, PLUS, your attention is preoccupied, and you don’t have the ability to receive clear insight, inspiration and guidance. You’re not available, because your awareness is already consumed.

Each year in Masterful Living, people are able to make extraordinary shifts and changes in all areas of their life, particularly their family, workplace, physical body and happiness because they take back their “RAM” and have it available for direction insight from Spirit.

When we’re able to welcome direct insight from Spirit, then we become adept at following it, which automatically brings more Peace, Love and Joy.

We work at the level of the mind, developing trust and faith in the guidance we’re receiving. Living this way is SO MUCH easier than trying to make things happen by pushing density and never knowing if it’s really working.

Often, the very things we’re sure will make us happy don’t. And, it’s simply because the causes of happiness are not outside of us, they are in the mind.

I’m SO excited for the breakthroughs that will be ours this year because of increased willingness to change our mind! We share the same Mind, so when one is lifted, all are lifted. Our individual benefits spiral out to everyone in our life.

Yesterday’s class was full of testimonials of people who have learned this for themselves because of having developed an effective spiritual practice. It’s a blessing to be able to see so many people who are willing to be more their TRUE selves and let the past go!

My Masterful Living Course supports people in establishing an effective spiritual practice. It’s not intellectual. It’s from the heart.
