Perception & Projection

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020

Today on my podcast, I’m going to share about one of the core principles of A Course in Miracles: the nature of perception and how that’s related to psychological projection as taught in ACIM.

This is SO helpful to really understand.

Being able to be very astute at recognizing projections and identifying mistaken perceptions leads to a much greater experience of Peace of mind.

There’s a lot we can do to make life easier for ourselves, and this is one of them.

ACIM Workbook Llesson #5 is “I’m never upset for the reason I think.”

How could it be that I’m NEVER upset for the reason I think?

The answer is: we’re upset by our projections and our perceptions, which are also projections.

We’re upset when we interpret what’s happening through the lens of our belief system.

We’re upset because we’re choosing to see what’s not really there – all the while insisting that it IS there.

That’s crazy.
It’s crazy-making.

Hence the upset.

We don’t like being upset, yet we blame others for it. We blame circumstances. The only way to undo the upset is to take responsibility for seeing things incorrectly and then be willing to change our view, go the other way, make a U-turn.

We can live a life very little upset if we’re willing. It’s simple. Willingness is required.

Living a life of Peace is completely worth giving up our opinions.

I’ll share more today in my podcast. Please join me live or listen later.

Overwhelm

Friday, January 17th, 2020

Last night I offered my free class, Unblock the Flow of Time, Energy & Money. (I’ll be offering it again on Sunday, so you can register now and get the download or join me live on Sunday.). 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 to navigate — 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.

When we feel a deep sense of lack and limitation, we feel life is too much and we’re simply not enough. It’s overwhelming.

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 my self. 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 “incompetencies”. 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, 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.

We focus on our willingness to let the past go.
We focus on our 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 yearlong 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.

Are you unsure about whether my yearlong Masterful Living 2020 is right for you right now? You can book an Exploratory Call with one of the Spiritual Counselors and let them answer all your questions. Click here now to book an Exploratory Call. If you’re going to join us next year in Masterful Living Course 2020, I encourage you to register early.

Moving out of overwhelm by healing the root causes is just one of the important and valuable things we practice in my yearlong Masterful Living Course. We actively practice healing the sense of separation that keeps us disconnected from each other and from Spirit. We cultivate the relationship with ourselves that is loving, and that keeps us connected with Spirit. We transform the most painful parts of our life. We heal depression by curing the CAUSE of depression.

Real people having real miracles.

I am truly grateful for this path of awakening that we’re on and our ability to cultivate a spiritual practice that speeds our healing and lifts us up above the battleground! Onward and upward, together we rise in Love!

Airport Angel

Wednesday, November 27th, 2019

Since the day before Thanksgiving is the biggest travel day of the year, and today is predicted to be unusually higher amounts of travelers, AND we’ve got major storms across the U.S., I’m sharing my favorite “Daily Shot of Spiritual Espresso” that I’ve written and it’s about traveling.

Waiting my turn at the LAX American Airlines Terminal Burger King at 5:30 one morning I watched the woman who filled the orders. She had an authentic smile for each customer, asking them if they wanted juice or coffee with their value meal. Each half-awake traveler was lovingly told where to find the napkins and the ketchup. Each was told to have a nice day with real sincerity. By the time it was my turn to receive her kindness, I had to tell her how much I appreciated and admired her spirit. Her smile grew even brighter. I felt the depth of her heart.

For many people, having to be at work before 5 a.m., dealing with the public for what is hardly a living wage. would be crushing. But for this woman, it seemed that she felt SHE was the one who was deeply blessed. Every day she faces people who are flying around the world for any number of reasons. Some are flying to or from funerals, some are frightened of flying, others worried about their jobs and their families. I saw that this woman recognized her opportunity to provide a personal and powerful blessing for each customer. We all have this opportunity with each person we meet, regardless of our circumstances.

This woman at the Burger King seemed to have it all because she was giving so much to each one she met.

With her every breath she teaches us that if we want more Love we need to be the Love we seek.

I intend to walk in the world as a loving, giving presence wherever I am and with whomever I’m with, and with every passing day I find more Joy in my walk. Still, I don’t know that I could do what this angel does. I know many people who yearn for a deeper expression of life purpose, more loving relationships, more Peace, more Prosperity. People often think they have to go somewhere special or take a special class to be transformed. I hear the words “Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.”

Today I resolve to find my inner angel nature and to walk in it.

I look for opportunities to share the Light that I can find in myself this day.

Angels don’t look for rewards or gratitude. The simple opportunity to be the giver IS the gift.

Today I am willing to be the Love in my life!

Please let me know your thoughts! And have a blessed trip if you’re traveling, and enjoy being cozy if you’re not traveling! I’m cooking and having time with my dearest soul sisters and Prayer Partners of 22 years. We’re so glad to be together. There’s much to be thankful for!

34 Days to January 1st – I share what I learned that shifted me out of my habits of spinning around in the same repeating upsets in my Masterful Living Course 2020. Registration is open NOW.

Healing the Habit Of Being A Fault-Finder

Sunday, November 17th, 2019

When I was in the graduate Screenwriting program at USC, my professor, the amazing actor/director Nina Foch, used to say “focus on the light. The darkness will take care of itself.”  This was her advice for directing students.  I’ve always thought that was excellent advice.

It’s so easy to focus on the dark.  And when we do, then all we see is more darkness and corruption.  The view becomes narrow and ugly.  The scenery is depressing and upsetting – or so we think.

I can admit that my personality is a judger and a fault-finder.  I can look at a perfect thing and find the smallest crack.  I can look at an arrangement of things and instantly see how they could be arranged more coherently, attractively, helpfully.  It used to always work against me.  For much of my life, I simply found more things to criticize everywhere I looked.

Now I can look at things and often I’ll see the Beauty before I see what the ego would judge as bad, wrong, imperfect.  I can see the perfection and let it rest at that, but not always.  I’m going for ALWAYS.

Looking for faults is a habit.  

It can be unlearned – and it’s SO worth doing.

Frequently finding fault is an ego habit that keeps us in a place of near-constant disappointment, blame, criticism, complaint, shame, agitation, and irritation.  

This way of looking at the world sucks the joy out of life.  It’s right up there with keeping score and holding grudges. If there’s anything worth letting go of, it’s this gnarly habit of seeing the devil in the details.

How do you break this hellish habit?  It’s so simple.  Willingness is all it takes.

It’s a willingness to replace the habit of fault-finding with praising and gratitude.

It’s not so hard to change our life if we’re willing.

Gratitude multiplies the good.
Complaining makes us a crap magnet.
We choose how we’d like our life to go.

Whenever I would realize I wasn’t happy and harmonious, when my Peace seems to have taken the low road, I learned to call upon Spirit to show me where I made the downturn.  It was always some judgment or opinion, some falsehood that had captured my attention.  I learned that I could give whatever the opinion or complaint was to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing and regain my Peace, my higher ground.

I learned to stand in faith that the healing will be done and give thanks that it IS done.  Because I AM willing, there’s nothing to prevent the healing from happening.  This is a powerful formula for transformation that actually works.

If the complaint returns, it just means I wasn’t really TRULY willing to let my opinion go.  It means I thought I was right.  

Sometimes we’re SO willing to stop being upset, 
but we’re NOT so willing to give up our complaint.  

We can’t have Freedom and keep our complaint.  
It’s one or the other.
Thank God for that.  
Now, in this holy instant, we can become TRULY willing.
And we’re carried back to Peace and Harmony.

What complaint have you got that’s worth trading your Peace for?  
I actually used to have SO MANY complaints that felt so important to me, but now I don’t have an interest in making that trade for Peace.

Learning to make the trade of handing over the false belief in exchange for the Peace is what we do in Masterful Living, and so much more. Registration is open now for my yearlong course.  My first class of the year is January 1st.

It seems crazy, but here we are 45 days until the new year!  

Let’s all consider, what we can do to deepen our spiritual practice between now and January 1.  Placing our docs on this will carry us through the holidays with a sense of success and fulfillment and that’s a great way to start the new year.

Next time you feel less than peaceful, remember that you’re never upset for the reason you think. The cause of upset isn’t “out there” in the world.  The cause of all upset is holding a grievance, a false belief or idea in our heart that we won’t let go.

Freedom is right here, right now, if we’re willing to keep it in focus.

I use affirmations to help me keep my mind aligned with Spirit.

What are my affirmations?

I AM willing to focus on the Light.  
I AM the Light.
I Love the Light.
I serve the Light. 
I live in the Light.
The Light is All.

I’ve found that affirmations are one of the most powerful tools I have to change my mind and choose again.

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.  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!

When anyone of us has more happiness, we’re all lifted!  All boats rise on this tide of Love.

If you’re going to join us next year, I encourage you to register early for the Masterful Living Course 2020.  Make the commitment to yourself NOW and you’ll have so much to look forward to – including tremendous healing and transformation!  Give yourself that gift this year and you’ll be amazed at how your connection with Spirit will bloom!

Having a loving relationship builds self-esteem and worthiness, and that’s a far better investment of our precious energy than fault-finding and that’s miraculous.  Are you ready for a miracle?  Check out the classes that we’re offering now!

Grief Support Class – Very few people really understand how to move through grief with ease and grace.  Jesse Brune-Horan is someone who has gone through tremendous loss and grief and is now offering support.  Jesse is a minister that I have partnered with in many classes and offerings, and I’m so glad to support this offering of his new class Healing Grief.  Now is the perfect time to get this support and to call forth more grace in your experience of grief.  Click here for more details.

FORGIVENESS CLASS: My Forgive & Be Free class, in 3 parts, is available on replay right now and join me for Part 3 today.  Let’s do this sacred work joyfully, and JoyFULLY together!  Register now and get the replay right now! Click here for more details.

Clear-Sighted

Thursday, September 26th, 2019

One thing I’ve noticed is that we don’t see what we cannot see. I used to get so annoyed with people because they weren’t observing what, to me, was so obvious.

It was frustrating to me that people couldn’t get things – all kinds of things – that seemed so completely obvious and “in your face” apparent. It seemed to me just plain willful ignorance.

Now I’m able to realize that we just cannot see what we’re not a vibrational match for.

For instance, some people can see so many ways and opportunities to be helpful, and they can tell whether it’s their call to do something or let it be and hold the high watch.

Some people can see that people are challenged and can use some encouragement, and some people just see someone in their way.

Some people can see that someone is being so very kind and helpful to a stranger and others won’t even notice what’s occurring.

This is what Jesus was referring to when he talked about having “the eyes to see and the ears to hear.” Our gifts and answered prayers can be right under our nose, but if we cannot recognize them, how would we know they’re there?

Many times when I’m working or writing intensely, people can come in the room I’m in and start to do things for many minutes before they recognize I’m there. They’re startled by my presence. I can’t say for certain what it’s about, but I do feel there are times when I turn on a cloaking device in order to avoid being interrupted, and many times people can’t even see me when I’m right there.

It’s a powerful and helpful skill to be able to recognize what’s going on around us without getting caught in the difficulties people are having. I won’t join people in worry and upset. And, I’ve learned when to offer a hand and when not to.

Cultivating the ability to discern what’s really going on is VERY worthwhile. It comes naturally when we’re willing to give up all attachment to judging and labeling. It’s a magnificent trade – opinion for truth! Let’s begin today!

If you’ve had enough of repeating painful patterns from the past, consider accepting my gift. I’m offering a LIVE VIDEO 2.5-hour workshop intensive this 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.

Forgiving Our Self-Betrayal

Tuesday, September 24th, 2019

As far as I can tell, we all have multiple things that we judge ourselves for, and that means that we must forgive ourselves in order to feel free of the trap of self-judgment and self-attack.

The things that we’ve done that we judge ourselves for can be seen as self-betrayal.

When we judge others and hold grievances against them, those two are, in essence, self-betrayal.

Any time we are unloving, it is a betrayal of our true Self, our Higher Holy Spirit Self.

Forgiveness is the way out.

Many people struggle for years, for decades, for the majority of their life for the simple reason that they aren’t courageous enough to look within and forgive their self-judgment and self-attack. This is where we can lead the way and demonstrate the power of forgiveness.

Today is the day for our healing.
Let’s no longer contribute to the idea that judging ourselves and each other is worth engaging in.
Let’s live our destiny and lead the way!

Have you had the experience of forgiving your self-betrayal?
Did it bring you miraculous results?
If so, please share your inspiration in the comments below!

If you’ve had enough of repeating painful patterns from the past – 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.

All Rise

Monday, September 23rd, 2019

I find that wherever there’s a pain-point in my life, in my mind, in my body, there is the place where I’m holding onto an attachment to something that’s not serving me anymore.  I don’t wish to learn through the pain anymore.  I’m committed to learning through Joy – and yet, I don’t always know HOW to do that.

Fortunately, I don’t have to research the HOW. My job is to ALLOW the Higher Holy Spirit Self to figure that out.  My job is entirely on focusing on my willingness to discard the painful patterns of the past and to step into the habit of making the most loving choice I can see.

My view of my life, and my ability to SEE and recognize with whatever faculty, (it sure doesn’t need to be my physical sight) whatever are the most loving choices available to me is up to my willingness.

This past Saturday, I took my sweet 13-year-old nephew, Mikey, to Manhattan for a day of adventures, and one of the things we did was to see the Broadway show To Kill A Mockingbird, based on the famous novel of the same name by Harper Lee.  In the first part of the play, there’s the monologue about the use of ALL RISE in the courtroom when the proceedings begin.  Scout, the young girl, tells us that this is what we must do in times of community service and matters such as this particular trial – we must rise to the best of ourselves, conduct ourselves and make our choices from our Higher Holy Spirit Self.

It’s so valuable to ALL of us to choose to LIVE this way, and not just on special occasions.  

We can live this way if we choose.

The more I’m able to live from my Higher Holy Spirit Self and conduct myself with Love and compassion, the more I LOVE my life and feel like I’m living life from my TRUE Self and not from reacting to circumstances.  It’s such a good feeling.  It also saves a HUGE amount of time, because I’m not having to clean up messes related to my reactions.

I love being able to pause and look for more loving choices and find them.  It’s exciting!  Spiritual practice is 24/7 when we’re truly willing.  Being willing is an active thing – it’s not passive at all.  When we’re actually willing we’re not waiting for opportunities to be loving and transcend and transmute the limited patterns of the past – we’re actively choosing those opportunities.  That’s what makes it so wonderful!

If you’ve had enough of repeating painful patterns from the past – 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.

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!

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!

Momentum

Saturday, September 21st, 2019

I’m beyond grateful for my life and the opportunities that it brings me. Right now, I have the blessing of doing 1-on-1 appointments with the good folks in my Masterful Living Course, and it’s wonderful to hear about how much their lives are changing because they’re doing the work at the level of the mind – applying the teachings of ACIM and using the tools that I share with them.

They are doing the work and it’s paying off!

This is the 11th year I’ve had the privilege of walking alongside these courageous souls. Sometimes in the early part of the year, they’ll share with me how frightened they are. They each have their own issues and their own curriculum in life. Some folks have major health issues, some have chronic depression, some have marriages that are falling apart, some feel stuck in their job, some are afraid to make changes, some are estranged from their children, and some just feel worthless.

Each of them decides to work at the pace they can handle. Some go ALL-IN, and some slowly work up to doing a bit more and a bit more. Each has their own experience.

And those who are willing to REALLY FOCUS on investing their faith and energy into spiritual practice are now seeing extraordinary results.

Anyone who really dives into the work at the level of the mind usually sees substantial results pretty quickly. Those who stick to it with real willingness and developing faith are rewarded with shifting that unworthiness into a feeling of success and building momentum.

Building momentum is such a powerful feeling.

Many are afraid to go for it because they’ve crashed and burned in the past – but the thing is, Spirit cannot fail – so this isn’t the same as working some other program like a weight loss program or a college program or something external. This is all internal work.

I find it so exciting to be able to talk with these beautiful souls and share their Joy and celebration. Miracles are happening. Real people experiencing real miracles and proving it to themselves: Spirit works for us, is never against us, and when one is lifted, all rise!

They see their family members are also getting inspired and shifting. That’s a powerful demonstration of the One Mind, and when you see it actually happening in you and around you, and in the people you’re closest to or who are most important to you, then it’s a great help in the realization of the One Mind, one life.

If you knew you would succeed, what would you wish for the strength to go for?

Healing Practices – Breath

Friday, September 20th, 2019

What I’ve really come to love about the spiritual approach to life is that every day, every hour, every moment can be a part of our spiritual practice. I used to feel this was a burden. I couldn’t bring myself to pay attention ALL of the time – that was too much to ask of myself. It felt so burdensome.

The burden was in the judgments I had against myself, not in the actual practices. By releasing more and more judgments, I was able to make my spiritual practice more and more easeful and graceful, and that has blessed my whole life. Now, I can be grateful for each opportunity I can find to turn whatever I’m doing into spiritual practice.

One very beneficial way we can increase our vitality is through breathing consciously. This is one of the things that my kundalini yoga practice has taught me. If I sense myself getting tense, I turn to deep breathing. This is something anyone who has the ability can do without cost at anytime.

Here are the benefits of long, deep breathing:

  • Long deep breathing relaxes and calms you due to its influence on the parasympathetic nervous system.
  • Increases the flow of prana.
  • Reduces and prevents the build-up of toxins in the lungs by encouraging the clearing of the small air sacs (alveoli).
  • Stimulates the brain chemicals (endorphins) that help fight depression.
  • Brings the brain to a new level of alertness.
  • Pumps the spinal fluid to the brain, giving greater energy.
  • Stimulates the pituitary gland to secrete, thus enhancing the intuition.
  • Filling the lungs to capacity revitalizes and re-adjusts the magnetic field.
  • Cleanses the blood.
  • Regulates the body’s pH balance which affects the ability to handle stressful situations.
  • Energizes and increases vitality.
  • Aids in releasing blockages in meridian energy flow.
  • Activates and clears the nerve channels.
  • Aids in speeding up emotional and physical healing.
  • Aids in breaking subconscious habit patterns such as insecurities and fears.
  • Aids in fighting addictions.
  • Re-channels previous mental conditioning on pain so as to reduce or eliminate pain.
  • Gives the capacity to manage negativity and emotions, supporting clarity, cool-­headedness, and patience.

That’s a LOT of benefits!!!

There are some healing techniques that you can use, and you can read about them here

I urge you to become a “breath expert.”

One thing I do almost every day is to practice long deep breathing white light meditation lying down in bed first thing in the morning. I usually wake, go to the restroom, wash out my mouth (I use a tongue scraper) and go back and lie down for about 10 to 20 minutes of deep breathing while lying down using an abdominal breath.

Breathing slowly and deeply, I start by fully exhaling. Be sure to exhale fully and get that old stale air out, bring in that fresh new air. It’s even better if you can step outside for a couple of minutes and do the long deep breathing.

Inhale filling first the belly, then expanding the chest, and lastly lifting the upper ribs and clavicle. The exhale is the reverse: first the upper deflates, then the middle, and finally the abdomen pulls in and up to fully exhale, as the belly pulls back toward the spine.

While I’m practicing this deep breathing, I’m visualizing myself filled and surrounded with golden white Light, and I make I AM statements of positive affirmation. “I AM the Purity of Love.” Is a favorite. “I AM the Light of the world.” “I am an eternal being of Infinite Love.” You can find the ones that resonate most for you.

It’s a simple practice that starts each day with Self-Love and Self-care, and all those benefits in the list above!! WOWZER!

Some people cannot breathe deeply. I’ve had friends who had major issues with their lungs, and breathing deeply is not something they can easily do. We can consciously send Love and Light to anyone having difficulty breathing while we’re breathing deeply, and that becomes an added bonus in our spiritual practice. We don’t have to think of anyone in particular.

Let all beings find ease and grace in their breath.

Have you practiced long deep breathing and know the benefits? Please tell us about it and share in the comments below! Let’s join together for our healing and inspire each other! Thank you!

It’s Breakthrough Time!

Sunday, September 15th, 2019

Have you noticed the energy shifting all around you, as well as in you? I sure have. What I see is that the people who have a small amount of willingness are using that to create an opening in their heart and their mind to find an even greater willingness, and they are seeing real results from it.

And then there are the folks who are in the place of believing they aren’t worthy of the good in life, and that they’re so unworthy that they don’t believe the healing can happen for them.

I used to feel so strongly that things work for others, but not for me, and so, “Why bother?” Can you relate?

I continued listening to audios, and reading books, and going to spiritual events without really committing to do the deep work. I continued feeling that the true healing and awakening I was after was elusive.

I didn’t realize that the reason it was elusive was because of my own resistance to make the commitment to doing the inner work necessary. It requires the willingness to overcome the fear to look within – and that fear is STRONG, but it has no power unless we give it power. It dissolves when we join together with others to look together. I love that about spiritual community.

I remember working with a counseling client who doubted the possibility of having real results. I said “If I could guarantee you that Fed-Ex would deliver your perfect healing on a day one year from now, would you accept it?”

She said she would receive it, yes.

I said, “Alright then, let’s work together in faith. Now, if you will take the stand that YOU know your healing will be delivered – even though you don’t know what it will look like – how would you like to focus your energy for the next year?”

You see, without faith she would spend the next year worrying and stressing about NOT HAVING the healing. But if she was willing to believe that the healing was guaranteed, she wouldn’t be worrying and stressing.

AND she wouldn’t be pushing the healing away. When we doubt, we are pushing the results we’d like away. And, deep down, it’s about our worthiness. That’s ALL it’s about. In ALL cases. All our doubt about Spirit is really self-doubt projected onto God.

We can’t be welcoming our good at the same time as we’re doubting it’s happening. Those are two opposing thoughts.

Just last weekend I did my Recovery From Sexual Abuse retreat, and it was one of the VERY BEST things I’ve ever done. Here’s why it was so great:

All of the participants were ALL-IN for their healing. They had GREAT willingness, even though they were anxious about doing the inner work.

They definitely had the fear to look within, but they were so willing to have a breakthrough.

These beautiful women in the photo above, Paula, Elizabeth, Kelly and Suzi, have SO MUCH COURAGE! They are to be applauded. They knew they were doing this inner work for everyone and not just themselves. They let go of so much and it was inspiring to be a part of it.

I wish there were some way I could inspire everyone to be willing to do the inner work and set themselves free. It’s the reason why I like to do the classes and retreats I do – working together it’s joyful and easier. Last weekend we had a lot of laughs, and everyone agreed that they had fun.

What is the healing that you would welcome and could welcome if you were willing to have faith and trust?

Faith and trust are the big issues we work on in my Finding Freedom From Fear boot camp. I’m going to offer it again in October, and if you’re interested in participating and would like to learn more please click here now to let me know.

LIVING the A Course in Miracles Lessons, walking the talk and living the Love, that’s where the healing is generated from. It ripples throughout our life and brings us the miraculous healing that seems so elusive. If you’d like to some inspiration, check out my podcast. I have have been told by many people that this episode has been very helpful to them: Hidden Ways We Avoid Healing – click here to listen and/or get the transcript. You can also search for any other topic you like.

Yes, it does take a great willingness to move through things quickly AND it’s so gratifying! We’re demonstrating the power of Love to heal our minds and our lives, and every problem we think we have. When we prove God works in our life, our faith is strong!

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. Please pray with me today. The Prayer for Today is for Bringing On A Breakthrough. 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!

Spiritual Success & Celebration

Saturday, December 15th, 2018

My mother used to quote St. Augustine, who said “The reward of patience is patience.” Ain’t that the truth. Patience is its own reward. It’s worth celebrating.

Life can be intensely challenging. It can be easy to get upset, and to spew that upset everywhere we go. It often seems as though that is the way of the world. And yet, there is a profound spiritual victory when we can exercise our ability to choose Love instead. What a great habit for our new year!

When we choose Love it’s worth celebrating. I used to be quite impatient. I made up my mind to replace that weakness in myself by aspiring to be consistently kind, patient, generous of heart and fundamentally “unbotherable”.

To encourage myself, I began to celebrate my victories. I learned the value of a happy dance of victory. I learned to praise and congratulate myself for my successes.

The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate. ~ Oprah Winfrey

Challenges aren’t as intense when we know it leads to our victory. I learned through my experiences that life’s difficulties have come to help me by challenging me to give up hurtful habits.

It may not get easier as fast as we’d like, but by taking life’s challenges as an opportunity to affirm our spiritual sovereignty and be “unbotherable” there will be many victories, and most certainly daily victories.

Celebrate your victories and the victories of those around you! Really celebrate when you make the higher, more loving choice and cultivate your own magnificent happy dance!

Find your happy song, and make it your victory song! Be victorious every day!

Each time we see opportunities to be annoyed, frustrated, irritated, angry, sad, depressed, and hurt, and instead we choose self-compassion, it’s a victory.

When we celebrate our victories, we are affirming that we have the ability to make a different choice. This is self-empowerment.

Today my Spirit is victorious! I am choosing Love and letting my Light shine!

We don’t have to let pain be our motivator anymore!
Let’s be willing together!

Would you like a spiritual mentor who walks right beside you? Are you SO ready to have a new experience in the new year? We’re doing the deep work, and the healing is revealing itself in our lives!

Capacity

Sunday, November 5th, 2017

One of the things that I am most grateful for is my ever-growing capacity to handle my own emotions and other people’s emotions with grace and compassion.  There was a time when people were SO disappointing to me.  I used to feel so bothered by people – to the point where I was in a near constant state of agitation or disappointment.

I made a conscious decision to increase my capacity to have compassion for others which naturally increased my self-compassion.  Compassion is loving understanding which is an expression of Love.  Love is the healer of the mind that labors in vain.

For me, it has been so gratifying to be able to develop a capacity to have more compassion and to be more generous.  Being generous with kindness, compassion, and patience has naturally healed my self-esteem.

As A Course in Miracles teaches us, “to have, give all to all.”  When we have Love and extend it to others, we are lifted by the Love into a higher vibrational life of miracles.

One of the early steps for me was to consciously increase my ability to be patient.  Practicing patience really did help me to Love myself more.  Catch this:  I didn’t realize it, but allowing myself to be upset, worried, angry, ashamed, or blaming was inflaming my heart and mind.  It was generating destruction and suffering – and that simply wasn’t being kind to myself.

The more I learned to be compassionate with others, the more I had the ability to be compassionate with myself.  This was deeply healing to me.

Before, when I flew off the handle at every little thing, deep down, I felt like an idiot.  I judged myself intensely for being so intensely judgmental.  Ugh.  It was the part of my life that I lived on the hamster wheel of non-stop judging.

Fortunately, I did eventually learn from my pain and suffering.  I’m glad that part of my life is over and now I can share the benefits of my learning with everyone.

If handling emotions and emotional intensity are challenging to you, I encourage you to make the decision to have the goal to be unbotherable.  Decide that you will practice developing the capacity and imagining yourself already there.  Here’s where you can give the Spirit the heavy lifting.

Developing capacity to Love, to be patient and kind, improves the quality of every minute of your day.  It is completely worthwhile.  Spirit will guide and carry you, if you’d really like to.  Now is the time of our awakening.  We’re simply saying, “Yes,” and being willing.

Artist’s Way

Saturday, May 6th, 2017

Back in the 90’s I taught The Artist’s Way a few times and I loved it.  It was really life-changing for many people.  It’s a beautiful book/class/journey that inspires again and again.  For many years people have asked me if I’d offer it again, but I haven’t felt called – until now!

Today I’m writing to let you know that my dear friend Patrick Ziegler has invited me to co-facilitate an online offering of The Artist’s Way!  Patrick is an inspiration in and of himself!  He’s a deeply spiritual man who is authentic and has a great sense of humor!  These are two things that are really helpful to anyone on a creative path.

I’ve known Patrick for many years and I’ve seen him grow his consciousness just as I have.  I’ve also seen him produce Emmy Award winning television and take all manner of creative risks.  Patrick is truly called to share this inspiring work with us!

Patrick will be leading the class and I’ll be joining to co-facilitate three of the online EVENING classes.  If you would like to spark your creativity this summer and have some fun with us – you can click here to learn more now:  http://www.pwz-artistway.com

We’ll be doing the class on a video platform so it will be that much more fun!

BTW One of the best things that came out of my experience of leading The Artist’s Way was I became bonded with my BFF, Laurie Schur.  We’ve been friends for just about 20 years now.  Laurie is a great treasure in my life.  The friends and connections you can make in doing The Artist’s Way together are a great gift!  I feel so blessed by Laurie and The Artist’s Way every day!

Let’s See What Magnificence Looks & Feels Like

Tuesday, January 31st, 2017

I’ve decided to reopen the registration for Masterful Living for 1 week.  It’s such an intense time in the world, and a lot of people are feeling frightened, angry, stuck and conflicted.  And yet, as Masterful Living is beginning and we’re focusing on how we’d like to feel one year from now, people are feeling inspired, uplifted and ready to ROCK.

I’m feeling SO inspired myself.  The past month, I can feel so much lifting and shifting in my own life and in many of the people who’ve been in class with me – they’re really shining!

Of course it depends on what people are focused on.  I’ve been putting more attention on the news and current political events in the last few months than I did in the ENTIRE previous 12 years – and focused on seeing it all as a healing, as Love being revealed, and opportunities to see the transformation of the patterns of separation thinking.

Many are seeing a different view – I get it.  There’s a big learning here.

We’re at the start of a new 9-year cycle.  The work we do now will have a big impact on how our lives unfold for the next 9 years!

I’m so aware of the tremendous benefits of doing this spiritual work.  There’s so much extraordinary transformation I’ve participated in during the last 9-year cycle.

Of course, we’re always free to change our mind and change our life.  And still, sometimes there’s more impetus, momentum, and support. This is one of those times.

Do you notice that so many things in your life are either PUSHING you to change or INSPIRING you to shift?

In Masterful Living, we’re dedicating ourselves to releasing the habit of learning through pain.  We’re actively choosing to learn how to learn through Joy.  A Course in Miracles tells us it’s much faster to learn through Joy.  Let’s really master this!

And then, let’s teach by example.  Let’s share the benefits with everyone!

Masterful Living Course 2017 registration reopened for 1 week only!

Tomorrow, it’s February.  I feel that this is the year we’re really stepping up.  The quickening is quickening!

Together, let’s give up all the time wasting and delaying tactics of the ego.  Let’s roll up our spiritual sleeves and see what magnificence looks and feels like!

We’re doing the deep work and the healing is revealing itself in our lives! If you’d like to join me in my year-long Masterful Living Course 2017, then please click here to learn more now.

Register now and if it’s not for you, you can always cancel – no obligation.  If you’re willing, I’m willing. If this is right for you, you WILL know it.  Trust your intuition!

Thank you, Mary Tyler Moore!

Friday, January 27th, 2017

When my brother and I were kids, our parents restricted our TV watching.  We could watch 2 hours per week of “regular” television, and more or less, anything on PBS.  Exceptions were if the whole family watched.

Two of those exceptions were Mary Tyler Moore and the Rhoda.  We watched as a family on Saturday nights, week after week, and I remember so many of those episodes, having only seen each episode once when I was a girl.  That’s pretty amazing.

What I loved so much about Mary was her strength and her vulnerability often went together.  She was a feminist breaking down barriers in the workplace, and yet she was often so fragile and vulnerable.  She felt so authentic, and yet she was often much more courageous and transparent than most people are able or willing to be.  What a beautiful teacher she was.

And what an extraordinary team of people surrounded her.  Like attracts like.  Brilliant minds find each other and certainly James L. Brooks, the show’s creator, has brought us so many beautiful and funny films and TV shows that let us laugh and cry about ourselves.

It may not seem like it now, to people much younger than me, but what they did on the MTM Show was very brave at the time, and it was very needed.  In many ways, the humor and the heart were a beacon in very difficult times in the U.S.

Mary Tyler Moore’s character on the show helped me to aspire to be a good person and speak up for others.  She taught us what compassion looked like.  She had a good and kind heart and yet she could also stand up for herself.  She was beautiful.

Aren’t we blessed to have such beautiful examples of how to be the best human being we can be?

And you know what – if the character Mary Richards were around today, she would DEFINITELY have marched last Saturday.  That was something very beautiful about Mary – she stood up for others and she could speak truth to power even when she was afraid it would cost her the job she loved with all her heart.  That’s amazing courage.  She taught us a lot.

For me, watching from the time I was 10 to 17 years old, in many ways, I learned how to be a woman from watching how Mary and Rhoda did it.  I’m sure I learned more from them than I even realize.  That’s a powerful legacy.

You can watch many, if not all, of the episodes on YouTube.  Next time you’re looking for some inspiration that also makes you laugh, possibly make you cry – check out an episode of the Mary Tyler Moore Show on YouTube!

GO FOR IT! My New Year’s Intention class is a 4-part series that you can begin right now. Register and you get the first two classes right away – 1 more week to join us live and lay the ground work for your most healing year ever! It’s the best way I know to get motivated and inspiration to have a different experience this year. I’ve added some incentives to entice you!  Please click here to learn more now!

King – A Life of Service

Monday, January 16th, 2017

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is a hero of mine. Back in the late 90’s, I joined with many other people across the nation celebrating the work of King and also Gandhi. We were honoring their legacy and the teachings of nonviolence.

Both of these men were profoundly inspired by the teachings of Jesus and both of them inspired a revolution of civil rights within their country. Both men, their teachings and their lives, continue to inspire me and many others who desire to live a life of service and recognize the power of Love to transform our hearts and minds, as well as our world.

I’ve loved listening to and reading Rev. Dr. King’s speeches. They never fail to inspire and uplift. He had such a gift!

One of my favorite teachings of Rev. Dr. King is his Loving Our Enemies sermon. It’s so powerful and beautiful and I’ve made it a part of both my Finding Freedom and Masterful Living Curriculums. You can click here to read the sermon, and you can  listen to the sermon here . I believe you’ll find the speech is just as powerful now as it was then and it speaks to our hearts just as clearly now as it did then. The same lessons apply to our life every day.

As King demonstrates for us so clearly, Love is the way, Love is the answer, Love is an act of service, Love is our redeemer.

It’s a great reminder at a time when there feels like a lot of divisiveness.  The time is always right to do what is loving.  What’s loving is always what’s right.

The time is always right and RIPE for us to answer the call to Love, to forgive and to be of service. When we live in this way, from our heart, then our life is an inspiration to all. This is our destiny and our calling. All are called.

I invite you to listen to the speech, to savor it, and apply King’s teaching to your life. You’ll find that if you do, your life will open up in ways you never imagined!

It’s not everyone who is willing to take a stand for Love. It’s not everyone who so values Love and understands the power of Love to heal and to redeem, that they’re willing to forgive, truly forgive, release all judgment and Love. But there are more of us. And it is the Light within us that cannot be hidden.

We can all live to serve the Light within us. All are called to shine their light. All are called to forgive. Every day offers us new opportunities to let the past go and to choose our Freedom.

A Course in Miracles tells us, “To have, give all to all.”

To have Love, strength, courage and faith – give compassion, which is Love, which is ALL, to all. Having compassion for all is our divine opportunity to rise above our humanness and to transcend the limitations of a mundane life. All are called every day. We are called, every day.

ACT NOW! My New Year’s Intention class is a 3-part series that just started. Enroll now and you can get the first class and lay the ground work for your most healing year ever! It’s the best way I know to get motivate and inspiration to have a different experience this year. Please click here to learn more now!

Spiritual Development

Friday, May 13th, 2016

Life is about remembering the Truth of who you are.  It’s about realizing the divinity of ALL life.  For most of us humans, this remembering feels like learning.  It feels like growth, change and development. Imagine the determination to develop that a single blade of grass has when it finds the strength to break through a cement sidewalk! We humans have within us that very same strength and power plus much more!

Is it possible to tap into your strength and power while complaining, criticizing and condemning?  No, of course not.

How often, instead of encouraging my own impulse to grow and develop, did I talk myself into remaining in the same familiar place? Thousands of times!

How many times did I hold onto an outgrown opinion about myself or others?  Millions of times!

But no more!  Now, I’m interested in awakening to the Truth that sets me free and that’s ALL I’m interested in.

Mahatma Gandhi said, “Constant development is the law of life, and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas in order to appear consistent drives himself into a false position. That is why Emerson said that foolish consistency was the hobgoblin of little minds … “

Each and every moment offers you the possibility of new development through learning and remembering. Today, you can seize opportunity to listen to your inner voice and like that determined blade of grass, break through the cement of your old thinking and outdated opinions.  God is for you, always with you!  Believe it and you WILL see it.  You CAN be truly masterful!

I AM a learner.  I AM willing to access my potential and release the cement of old thinking right NOW!

Next week!  Check out my Stop Playing Small Retreat next week in North Carolina! And the Advanced Masterful Living Retreat.

Healing the Habit of Disappointment

Wednesday, October 28th, 2015

I used to go through cycles where I would collect disappointments like some people collect comic books – by the hundreds and thousands!

Honest to God, I would literally stand in expectation of being disappointed.

I secretly hoped that people would let me down.
In the intensity of my ego identification, I would feel justified in my upset every time I thought that others had let me down.

I had gotten into a pattern of anger, resentment and disappointment. It was like living at the center of a toxic whirlpool. I didn’t realize that the ego was getting stronger and stronger with every disappointment I collected and every resentment I held onto. I seemed to gather strength from taking offense and then stewing in my self-righteousness.

I was ruining my life.
I wasn’t allowing myself to see it.
I wanted to blame others.
It was their fault.
They did it to me.

I was willingly trading my joy, peace, harmony and prosperity – ALL of the good of God in exchange for being right and righteous. I wasted my precious friendships on complaining. And, as you know, complaining makes you a crap magnet.

How did I escape from this mess of misery I was making? 5 things:

  1. 1. Spiritual Practice

You’ve probably heard it before, but ALL expectations bring suffering.
All expectations are attachments.

You’ve probably heard it before, but ALL expectations bring suffering.
All expectations are attachments.

Expectations are burdens you place on other people, often without telling them.
Expectations are disappointments in the making.

If you have a list of grievances in the form of disappointments and resentments – look for all the expectations under neath. Place your attention on the patterns of your suffering. Bring the light of Love to these patterns. Illuminate them by bringing them to the light rather than keeping them hidden.

Releasing ALL expectations, opening your heart in compassion makes you a Love Magnet. You CAN be a Love magnet and release all suffering. It’s not easy, but neither is suffering!

Freedom From Fear

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

One of the most maddeningly deceptive beliefs about this world is that the circumstances of our life cause fear. Nothing could be further from the truth.

We feel afraid because we choose unloving thoughts, we invest in them, we believe they’re valuable and we repeat them again and again becoming very attached to them. And then, of course we think they are so real.

The feelings of fear are the result of thinking we’re right when we’re not.
And yet, we still keep thinking the same unloving thoughts and telling ourselves our upset is because of what’s happening the world. And then, of course, it starts to feel like we’re stuck and there’s nothing we can do about it.

Spiritual practice is the mechanism by which we can quickly step out of the same repetitive pattern of thinking and experience. That’s what I’m talking about on my radio show today!
