Don’t Take It Personally

Saturday, March 23rd, 2019

It’s so valuable for us to remember that when people are upset with us, it’s really NOT personal. Think about it, when you feel upset because of what someone is doing, aren’t you actually upset because of how you are judging them? It’s your judgment that upsets you – not what they’re doing. It’s your interpretation. It’s the meaning you make of it that is bothering you.

When we’re upset, we’re viewing the perfection in the moment through the lens of the past. That’s why A Course in Miracles tells us “you’re never upset for the reason you think.”

When we don’t like what someone is doing or not doing the tendency is to become take it personally, judge and then feel upset, and then fearful. It’s the same old pattern repeating over and over. When it seems like we’re being attacked, the tendency is to defend by attacking which just increases the turmoil.

I love that ACIM says, “The best defense, as always, is not to attack another’s position, but rather to protect the truth.”

I always know that I’m incorrect when I’m blaming others for my upset. I’m not interested in seeing myself as a victim any longer – enough of that! I’m interested in feeling empowered, loving and happy. I am willing to receive all challenges as a gift.

Now is the time for us to focus on HEALING these pain patterns. When the trigger happens, the healing opportunity is practically screaming at us. Let’s not delay another day!

Spring Clearing

Friday, March 22nd, 2019

Good God Almighty, I really do feel blessed. It’s such a blessing to be able to work with friends, and to be able to go to beautiful places and do the work that I love. It’s fun and it’s fulfilling.

I used to have a fantasy about having fun and fulfilling work, but I gave that up for holding a vision of healing. Each one of us who has the courage to do our own healing work shares the benefit with everyone.

Last night in our retreat, Lisa Natoli was asking if we were willing to be saviors. Each one of us that is willing to be the Light of the world is a savior.

It really made a difference in my life to know that each loving choice I made was bringing benefit to everyone and not just myself. It became this incentive for me to really focus my attention and get on with it.

Sometimes we can get into a trap of thinking “I’ll do it tomorrow” – but in truth, tomorrow doesn’t ever come. It’s always today that the healing opportunity is presenting itself.

Consider what healing opportunities you’ve been putting off until tomorrow. Spring is here. Winter is over here in the Northern Hemisphere, the seasons are changing. Let’s change, too.

What have you been putting off in terms of your healing, your happiness, your awakening? Be willing to make some supportive choices every day and you’ll see the change.

Put Spirit in charge, and you’ll always be glad you did!

Love Is Streaming

Thursday, March 21st, 2019

As you may know, yesterday we began a healing retreat with my friends Jon Mundy, Lisa Natoli, and Corinne Zupko, and other friends old and new as participants. We’re having a lovely time. Healing is happening already.

Last night, just as we were starting, there was a power outage. We’re at a huge resort. Hundred of rooms. Suddenly, just as we’re starting our evening program, lights out!

The emergency lights came on. But they only lasted so long, and they ran out of power. Fortunately, the staff brought us some battery operated camping lanterns and we were able to carry on with very limited lighting.

We literally found the light in the dark!

It took some doing, but we even managed to carry on with our Live Video Love-stream for the home audience!

Instead of using the computer and items that we’d planned, we had to use our phones – one as a camera and one as a microphone. And the signal was strong enough and it held while we did the Love-stream. Amazing!

What I know about my life is this: the more I let go of judgment, the more I am undaunted by whatever life brings me.

I’ve learned to be grateful for what is and not complain.
I don’t do this perfectly – yet – but I aspire to.

Today, the folks who are joined with us at the retreat are making a fearless inventory of the things that block their ability to accept the healing, expansion, and life that they truly desire. This takes real courage.

Please hold us in prayer.

Corinne is going to share about transforming anxiety this morning and we’re going to have a whole lot of healing today!

Life without judgment is a life without fear.
Let’s prove it together!
There’s so much more healing to come!

Transforming Self-Hatred

Wednesday, March 20th, 2019

Yesterday, I got guidance to change the topic of my radio show at the last minute and talk about my journey of transforming self-hatred and how it relates to the hatred we see erupting in the world today.

Now is an epic time for healing these patterns of the past, and I’m so grateful that I’m starting a healing retreat today with my friends Jon Mundy, Lisa Natoli and Corinne Zupko. I can really see how my intentions are becoming made manifest.

I had such a strong intention to leave the past behind and to experience deep healing. I am so grateful to be able to PROVE that God works in my life and the lives of others. I love being able to PROVE that these ACIM teachings are real and they work.

We resist living the life we most want to live because we feel unworthy, but all are worthy.

Who in your life do you see as being unworthy of happiness. Would you be willing to give that up in order to have happiness for yourself? You can’t deny someone else’s happiness and have your own. Life doesn’t work that way.

Let’s pray for everyone to be happy. True happiness comes from being loving. Let’s choose that now.

There’s so much more healing to come!

Finding Happiness

Tuesday, March 19th, 2019

In general, people don’t feel empowered to change their lives. Instead, they have a strategy of managing, coping and settling.

If managing and coping don’t work, they’ll decide to settle.

In 2010, I was participating in a group coaching call with a wonderful marketing expert, Chris Williams from Wide Awake Marketing. I was trying to learn some helpful marketing basics. Chris was helping us to practice our elevator speeches.

An elevator speech is a 20-second introduction that you could give to someone in the time it takes to go up a couple of floors in an elevator. There was a woman who said she was a life coach, and her elevator speech was:

I help people with their problems by coming up with managing and coping strategies so they can have better relationships, more fulfilling careers and improve their health and well-being.

I immediately knew my elevator speech could be:

I help people find happiness. Together we solve their problems by healing the root causes, including identifying and eliminating their managing and coping strategies so they can actually enjoy their life, and have fulfilling relationships and careers while improving their health and well-being.

I didn’t wish to make the life coach wrong, but if you settle for learning managing and coping skills is like making an agreement that you can’t ever have the life you desire. You HAVE to settle in order to apply that approach.

I can’t advocate for settling, managing and coping. That’s a strategy for people who feel that solutions aren’t available to them. It’s a strategy for people who feel like they’re on their own and don’t have any tangible INTELLIGENT support.

I’ve learned that I ALWAYS have tangible intelligent support from Spirit, from my Higher Holy Spirit Self, because I’ve cultivated a relationship with my Higher Holy Spirit Self, and so it’s always available to me – as long as I’m not harboring unforgiveness.

When I’m holding on to resentments and regrets, guilt, blame and shame, then I’m focused on my own beliefs and the story I’ve made up about things. If I’m attached to that false perspective, is it even possible that I’d be interested in actually solving my problems? Can happiness be possible?

If I’m thinking I’m so right about how wrong things are, is there any part of me that’s open to having a healing?

We think we have to manage, cope and settle when we don’t feel empowered. And then, happiness seems out of the question.

When we don’t forgive, when we attack and hold grudges, when we complain and feel resentful, when we feel guilty, when all of these thoughts and feelings are swirling around our mind every day, we simply do not feel loving and kind, we don’t feel generous and compassionate to ourselves or others. And THAT is why we don’t feel empowered.

Love is our power. It is the power of Love in us that allows us to feel worthy of a good life, rather than settling, managing and coping.

I invite you to consider where you might be managing and coping, and where you may have settled. Then, choose happiness. The first step is self-forgiveness. That’s the first act of Self-Love.

If you’re willing to be more loving every day, you’ll notice you feel empowered to make changes rather than continue to cope. It sounds really simple, which it is. It’s just a matter of whether or not we choose to focus on being more willing to be more loving every day.

When we’re making more loving choices, our family makes more loving choices, our friends and our co-workers are inspired, too. Being loving is inspiring and infectious. And if that doesn’t bring happiness, keep at it, because it surely will!

If you feel resistant, you may be resistant to happiness itself, and that’s what I’m going to share about on my radio show today.

Now’s the time for for us to shine the Light of Love into every day and share the happiness!

We’re getting ready for our Spring Clearing Retreat this week – it’s not too late to join us – and we still have payment plans!

If you’re willing to have the courage to heal – we’re going for it – come with us!

Intensity of Density

Monday, March 18th, 2019

In case you haven’t noticed, things are picking up speed and intensity. We’re living in the time of speed. What would take a generation to come to terms with, we’re doing in a year.

Right now, we can all bear witness to eruptions of all kinds in all directions. There are explosions of ferocious and deadly weather. Planes crashing. Massacres. Outbreaks of war. The patriarchy is being turned on its side and it’s shaking. Those who feel entitled to profit off of other people’s pain are being exposed. Hatred is coming to the surface, and those who cannot lead with Love attempt to divide and conquer.

It’s the intensity of density, the shaking and howling as we rise up to a higher vibration. Those who resist are not going quietly.

Are you in breakdown or breakthrough, or can you feel both happening?

Very often, there’s a breakdown before there’s a breakthrough. Sometime’s  it feels impossible to believe that everything works together for our good. At times it feels insane to even contemplate that everything in this world could possibly work together for our good.

Many times, when there are dramatic and intense acts of violence and destruction from nature or from people, it feels as though we’re living in a world that is completely insane.

When it feels insane, I focus on increasing my trust and faith that there is only God’s Will, and no other Will, no separate Will. I affirm that if I could see beyond time and space, I would know and see and feel the perfection that is being revealed.

God’s Will is perfect happiness for me. And I can suffer but from the belief there is another will apart from His. A Course in Miracles Lesson 116

As of now, in most cases, I do not know what anything is for (ACIM Lesson 25) and so I can either be terrified or I can place my trust in Love. I cannot handle being terrified, as it feels pointless, and placing my trust in Love has never, ever been pointless, so I go with what works for me.

I feel comfort and security in knowing that there is only one will at work in my life, and I can learn to trust it completely. I feel that is my mission. To fully trust and have faith that Spirit is fully good, and there is no ACTUAL opposition to that good, no matter how things appear.

Let us learn to rely upon grace. I certainly do. Grace is always available and present. Whether we ask for it or not, it’s activated. Like a Divine Insurance Plan.

Grace becomes inevitable instantly in those who have prepared a table where it can be gently laid and willingly received; an altar clean and holy for the gift.

Grace is acceptance of the Love of God within a world of seeming hate and fear. By grace alone the hate and fear are gone, for grace presents a state so opposite to everything the world contains, that those whose minds are lighted by the gift of grace can not believe the world of fear is real. A Course in Miracles Lesson 169

Our mission is to rise above the battlefield and see all is One. United, indivisible. Grace is Divine Justice at work in our lives. On this we can rely and never doubt, if we choose.

Let us know that there is Divine Will and grace at work in the lives of everyone who is having a breakdown right now. Something powerfully good is happening regardless of how it looks. Spirit is in charge. Spirit does not fail and will not fail. On this we depend. We don’t have to make the healing happen, we allow it. Our willingness is all that is required.

If you’re willing to have the courage to heal – we’re going for it – come with us! We have a couple of spots left.

No Ego Satisfaction

Friday, March 15th, 2019

There’s no such thing as ego satisfaction. It doesn’t exist. What does exist is spiritual fulfillment. Let’s go for that.

Have you ever been consumed and distracted with accomplishing errands and doing chores, instead of expanding into Love, Beauty and Wisdom through spiritual practice? I have! I’ve chosen the ego satisfaction of getting things done instead of deepening my spiritual connection.

The ego has a lot of tricks that are really subtle, and they can hook us so easily.

Sometimes we’d rather run errands and get chores done than simply be contemplative and commune with Spirit for 20 minutes. We’re avoiding that spiritual connection. The ego is such a trickster. We can get everything done and orderly and have missed *the whole point of experiencing more order and Clarity. It’s not about ego satisfaction and accomplishment. The point is for us to choose Clarity and experience Clarity. It’s not about what we did – it’s about what we ARE.

Then, too, some folks live in such a mess of disorder that they find it impossible to concentrate and are always off balance, and playing catch up, arriving late and feeling distracted, and so they spin around for those 20 minutes that they could have used to tune in and tune UP! Been there and done that!

Right now, more than ever, there’s gold in the little moments – because the choice we make is either opening to Love or choosing separation – even in the little and insignificant choices. There’s the power and presence of God in each choice we make, if we look for it. It’s SO worth making a series of seemingly small loving choices. In my experience, it’s life-changing. It’s that drip, drip, drip that can fill a bucket much quicker than we thought.

The thing that helps us to keep from being caught in those ego distractions is to have a clear aspiration for awakening to our true identity AND a strong intention to be aligned with our Higher Holy Spirit Self. Spirit will lead us if we’re intending to be led.

This I know – each moment we can start again. It’s important to realize that many small loving choices each day transform our fearful life into a life full of Love.

I say, let’s go for spiritual fulfillment! Our HEART is the heart of God and that IS the Kingdom. Are you in? What say you?

If you’re willing to have the courage to heal – we’re going for it – come with us! We have a couple of spots left.

Manifesting, Life Purpose and Relationships

Thursday, March 14th, 2019

When I first started counseling people, many people were asking for help living their life purpose, healing their relationships, and manifesting the life they desired. These are three main topics that people have in life.

Being successful at living our life purpose, having great relationships and manifesting even the most basic necessities can all seem like a big mystery. We don’t wish to manifest our heart’s desire only to have it slip through our fingers. We’d like to have the consciousness to hold on to it!

Everything in our life is a demonstration of our beliefs. Many times beliefs are hidden, and even though we believe life is abundant, we’re not experiencing it. We can believe that God is Love, but we’re not experiencing it. This can be intensely frustrating.

We feel like a failure, and we know that’s not helpful. We label “not spiritual” and it makes us feel like a fake, adding insult to injury. It doesn’t have to stay that way.

When you think of manifesting, do you think of:

  • Home, Car, Vacations, or
  • Paying the bills, Groceries, Needs of your family, or
  • Life Purpose and Career, Relationships with a partner and friends

If your answer is ONE or ALL of the Above, then I’d like to share with you an event I’m participating in that’s completely free.

Join me speaking with my colleague, Melissa Lilly Nelson, on New Three University’s Manifesting, Life Purpose and Relationships online event. This is my second time doing an event with Melissa, and it may call to you where you are right now.

I agree with Melissa when she shares that “manifesting an abundant life purpose and Supportive Relationships is our birthright!.” It’s our nature to be in the flow of Love, Abundance, Wisdom, and to live our true purpose.

You’re Invited, Click Here to Join Us.

This event is not overwhelming, because the interviews are only 20 minutes each, give great advice, and it’s a small group of teachers so you won’t get a ton of e-mails. And, you can always unsubscribe when you feel complete, but it’s definitely worth giving each person a listen. Enjoy!

If you’re willing to have the courage to heal – we’re going for it – come with us!

Golden

Wednesday, March 13th, 2019

Yesterday was National Golden Retriever day and in case you missed it, I’m here to remind you. My family has had two Goldens, and we just love them in our family. Max was the last “good boy” we had and he was a precious charmer.

When my mom was so ill, he was glued to her most of the time. When she could still walk, he wanted to be so close to her he’d go right along side her no matter how slow she walked. I knew he was supporting her energetically, and he was there to break her fall if she teetered.

When the doctor made a house call,or the hospice workers were in for a visit, they’d kick Max out of the room and shut the door. He’d put his nose in the crack of the door and whine until they let him in. He knew he was supposed to be in there for moral support!

I just love this video I saw today, and it reminds me so much of how precious Max is and how much I miss him. I dare you to watch this video only one time!

Please tell me which one of these precious pups is your favorite in the comments below! I think the one in the pink getting a bath is my favorite, but, gosh, it’s hard to choose!

If you’re willing to have the courage to heal – we’re going for it – come with us!

Dedication

Sunday, March 10th, 2019

This morning I’m contemplating dedication and devotion, and why it is that I have such a passion for this spiritual path and the work I’ve found with this ministry. It put me in mind of a conversation we had in Masterful Living class this week.

A Course in Miracles tells us that “all are called.” I know it’s true. And not everyone answers their call. Yet it’s valuable to understand that we all CAN answer the call in our unique way.

We all have a call to serve the Light through being loving.
The path of Love is the way, the truth and the life.

My profession as a teacher is to share what I’ve learned in a way that can be helpful to others. My profession as a minister is to teach, and also to comfort, to encourage, and to support others as they are going through the storms and changes of life.

It is a sacred honor to minister, and it has taught me a great compassion and willingness. I came to ministry because I wished to acquire these abilities, not because I already had them.

What we were discussing in class this week is that we can each serve the Light where we are. It doesn’t matter what we’re doing or where we’re living. There’s no question that we’ve been perfectly placed where we are. We must start where we are and then move from there. Let us have faith in the Divine Order of where we have landed in the moment.

My dedication comes from seeing the results of my choices.

While I no longer remember well how low I used to feel, I remember that I used to feel it. I don’t remember what it felt like to be so afraid because I was convinced of my false beliefs, but I remember that I felt it. I am reminded every time that I sit with someone who is struggling with fear, worry, anger, hurt, and all the emotions I was so challenged by.

I am so grateful that my life has changed.
I am so grateful that I have replaced fear with faith.
I am so grateful for finding Freedom in my own heart and mind.

My gratitude compels me to keep going and to share.

One of the great ways I share is simply by demonstrating my willingness to be loving, each and every day, whether anyone else is watching or not. Every day I could do better, and today I will. Every day is part of an upward trajectory.

Regardless of how others treat me, I can be loving.
Regardless of others worry and fear, I can be faithful.
I can have dominion over my thoughts.
I can cultivate my spiritual sovereignty.
I can follow my guidance even if every other person on the planet thinks I’m nuts.

I am grateful that we all have this call, and that we can all answer and serve the Light right where we are. It’s a perfect system!

If you’re willing to have the courage to heal – we’re going for it – come with us!

Learning

Saturday, March 9th, 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.

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. When they become willing to change their minds and actually make the effort, they experience miracles. It really works!

How do we rid ourselves of the false beliefs?
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.
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.

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

Healing is easier than you might think. Your 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!

Surrender

Friday, March 8th, 2019

Earlier this year, I was sharing that “surrender” was my word for the year. I’m enjoying how it’s going this year, holding this word in front of me more and more.

Of course, in the ego thought system, surrender is defeat. It’s a death to the ego, as there’s nothing worse in the ego thinking than defeat.

But this is not that kind of surrender.

I’m surrendering the things I don’t like and don’t want.
I’m surrendering the things I think I’d like to have.
And the things I’d like to be different.
I’m handing them UP and over to that Higher Holy Spirit Self.

We can surrender the struggle without giving up on our dreams.
In fact, when we’re struggling we’re not in the flow, so the best thing to do is to relax, take a breath, and let Spirit take over.

We don’t need to figure things out.
Insight can be given to us.
Miracles are a form of insight.
And, we are entitled to miracles.

Many of our goals are contradictory and conflicting, and we don’t even realize it. We say we’d like to have Peace, but then we actively avoid it. Deep down we know it, and it’s disheartening. Let’s surrender all of these patterns for healing. That’s what I’m talking about.

If you knew that perfect Joy came through surrender, would it be more appealing?

Problems

Thursday, March 7th, 2019

Yesterday in our Masterful Living Class we were talking about problems. The ego mindset is one of constant problems, never-ending problems, relentless problems, running a gauntlet of problems.

We can become identified with our problems.
We can become addicted to solving problems.

And yet, problems are not coming at us from the world, they are manifestations of our beliefs and they can be resolved by Spirit, if we choose.

A Course in Miracles tells us:

The Holy Spirit offers you release from every problem that you think you have. They are the same to Him because each one, regardless of the form it seems to take, is a demand that someone suffer loss and make a sacrifice that you might gain. And when the situation is worked out so no one loses is the problem gone, because it was an error in perception that now has been corrected. One mistake is not more difficult for Him to bring to truth than is another. For there is but one mistake; the whole idea that loss is possible, and could result in gain for anyone. If this were true, then God would be unfair; sin would be possible, attack be justified and vengeance fair. T-26.II.2.

I used to be what some would call a “drama queen”. I realized that when I was fully identified with ego, I liked having problems because they made me feel alive. Now, I choose to feel alive because I’m experiencing the flow of Love.

When we feel like a victim, we’re identified with our problems. It’s a false identification. We’ve abandoned who we really are. We can come back to our true identity in Spirit, which always awaits our choice. The time to choose our true identity is now.

What a blessing that we can change our mind and our habits, no matter how ingrained they seem to be. Phew!

I encourage you to look at your identification with problems.
Are you a problem solver?
Are you a person with constant problems?
Do you grapple with big problems or little problems?

Where is your identification?
Who will you be without your problems?

These are meaningful questions that have really helped me to establish an awareness of my true identity. What do you choose?

Wilt Thou Be Made Whole?

Wednesday, March 6th, 2019

Yesterday I was blessed to have my dear friend, Lisa Natoli, as my guest on my radio show. Our topic was healing and the hour went by SO FAST. I have to say that I feel like my whole life revolves around this topic and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to heal that is available to all of us all the time. No more managing and coping!

This is a powerful time to open ourselves to the healing that is available to us. It’s never been so easy to let the past go and our willingness is all that’s required.

Yes, it can feel like peeling an onion – so many layers of burning and painful tears, but it doesn’t HAVE to be like that. We can throw the whole onion in the fire.

The week before, on the radio show, Corinne Zupko was my guest and we were talking about having the courage to heal. This is vital to understand because it’s something we can cultivate. Fear can be eliminated and Corinne’s beautiful work helping us to heal anxiety is a testimony to that. We don’t have to struggle with fear and anxiety, it can be dissolved and resolved back to the root cause, even if we don’t know what that root is. That is the miracle that is ours to receive.

And BTW, if you’re a radio show listener, last week’s audio was defective, so delete it from your podcast app and then download it again to get the “healed” version!

Jesus asked people if they were willing to heal. Without that willingness the healing doesn’t last – no matter what the issue is. We must be wiling to walk in the world in our wholeness and perfection and surrender everything in the mind that stands between us and our natural state.

There’s never a sacrifice, merely a surrender. Healing requires surrender of our false beliefs. We can begin now. It’s the perfect time. I surrender, I surrender, I surrender!

It takes courage to heal – and that’s why we can be so much more effective working together! Come to one of these healing events this month and we’ll go for it!

The Healing Cure

Tuesday, March 5th, 2019

A Course in Miracles tells us that the healer is the mind itself and no other. If we allow ourselves to accept this, it can open the door to tremendous healing. However, it can also bring with it fear.

Healing isn’t complicated, but our feelings often are.

Our feelings stem from our belief system. When we believe things that aren’t true we have anxiety and fear. It does often seem as though the fear and anxiety are a natural reaction to our experiences, but it isn’t true and will never be true.

We can put 10 people in the same circumstances and some will feel afraid and some won’t, based on their beliefs. One person is terrified of intimate relationships and intimacy, and will avoid it at all costs, but has no problem climbing a rock wall. Yet another person can handle relationships but not the rock climbing.

In workshops, I’ve seen people sit on the other side of the room from me behind a table, with the arms folded across their chest, refusing to engage with the rest of the group, who are covering their fear with hostility and defensiveness. Those same people will shift in the course of a few hours in a workshop and become open, available, sweet and helpful.

Healing happens when we’re willing to be loving.

We can learn so much on our healing journey. SO MUCH!
That’s why I like to do the healing in groups, and with friends and like-minded souls.
When we go together it’s not so scary and we can accomplish so much more healing!

The question we must ask ourselves is “Wilt thou be made whole?”

Our willingness to relinquish the beliefs is absolutely required.

What belief holds you back from healing? Please share 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.

There Is Only Light

Monday, February 25th, 2019

One of the most intense false beliefs people can develop is the belief that they are dark and evil. I’ve talked with many people who have come to believe that they are so bad, so wrong, so mean spirited and hard-hearted that they are fundamentally evil.

It’s just not true. Even if someone is focused on attack all of the time, they are still fundamentally good – but they’ve become focused on being unloving. The good news is that they can change their mind.

A Course in Miracles tells us, “You have been willing to bring the darkness to light, and this willingness has given strength to everyone who would remain in darkness. Those who would see will see.”

The darkness isn’t real. It will never last. We are all having a healing, and that healing is happening NOW!

It might not be easy to change our mind when we’re utterly convinced that we’re not good enough to live and Love, but if we’re willing to enlist others to help us then it’s much easier.

The journey from feeling focused on darkness to focusing on the Light is much faster and easier when we do it together.

What I’ve seen is that great healing happens faster when there is GREAT willingness.

We train ourselves to look at what isn’t harmonious and to bring it to the Light. We can make a new habit of bringing everything to the Light of our being for healing purposes. It takes great willingness, but it works.

Great willingness begins today!

Tears of Gratitude

Friday, February 22nd, 2019

For a long time, I didn’t cry. I won’t say that I couldn’t cry, but just that I didn’t cry. Well, alright, that’s not entirely accurate. The only things that made me well up with tears were movies and stories about people being able to find their own redemption.

For instance, Norma Rae, when she stands on the table with the “union” sign, I cry like a baby every time. Her standing up to the oppressor is such an act of courage and in a sense, redemption, that it touches me deeply.

I also cry when I see a marching band. I just love a parade. They get me every time. It’s the moving in unison. It’s the joining together for the purpose of making something beautiful. It touches my heart.

When I sang in the Agape International Choir, I used to cry while we sang all the time. I wasn’t the only one. I could look down the row and see others singing their heart out with tears running down their cheeks. We were singing our prayers of gratitude and rising up to Spirit. It was a beautiful and healing experience.

Many times, I knew that I was crying to release the stored sadness from a time when I thought I’d never get to the place of healing where I was in that moment. I am so grateful, SO VERY grateful, for the healing I’ve experienced, and that is why I must keep sharing that so much healing is possible for each of us.

If we’re willing and we choose it, healing is ours.

Upset

Thursday, February 21st, 2019

When life hands us major storms of drama and trauma, it’s also a time for extreme and extraordinary healing. There truly is a tremendous benefit to being able to consciously go through experiences of intense overwhelm and distress. I’m not saying that it’s easy, because it isn’t. However, being able to look at our greatest upsets from a higher perspective allows us to move through it with less pain and suffering.

It’s actually a profound act of Self-Love to be willing, just willing, to stop interpreting everything that’s going on and to put a pause on thinking we know what the meaning of everything is.

When things in our life become super challenging, when the rug is pulled out from under us, it’s life-threatening to the ego. It can be helpful to remember that the ego identification is all about being identified as a being that is inside of structure, such as relationship, career, financial status, home, body, health, etc. If these structures are threatened, then the ego is threatened to such a degree that it feels as though our life is at stake, and sometimes it leads us to wish that we could die.

What’s really happening is the Spirit is breaking through the false shell of the ego/personality attachments. A Course in Miracles tells us that it need not be painful, but it usually is. It’s painful because when we’re identified with the relationships, career, financial status, etc. we don’t know who we are or how to be without them. It’s terrifying because without those things we feel worthless, and we can feel intensely disoriented.

Probably the most intense example is when a loved one dies suddenly. This is usually a huge shock. We ask, “Who am I without this person?” I remember feeling that when my Mom passed. I literally asked myself “Who am I now?”

For me, I had become identified as my mother’s caregiver, and now that role was gone. I had been her caregiver 24/7, along with my father, and that was our entire focus. Without that focus, who was I?

We become identified with the roles we play, and if they are no longer valuable or necessary it’s an intense shift for the ego. This happens with people when their animal companions make their transitions and it’s very challenging, especially because people without animal companions don’t understand. A bond with an animal can be FAR stronger than with a person because the Love is unconditional. The relationship is near perfect.

When we get fired, it can be a big shock. When our legs no longer work they way they used to, it’s a big challenge to the ego. When the beautiful woman is no longer beautiful in her own eyes, it’s a challenge. It’s like the ground beneath our feet is shaking and we’re not prepared for it.

When these challenges occur, as they do in everyone’s life, we can learn to breathe and turn to the Higher Holy Spirit Self. The most valuable thing is to be able to turn the mind away from meaning making and to reach for the truth.

The truth is that our true identity is perfect and always complete. Other people, jobs, beauty, money, houses, these things do not complete us. We are already complete.

When the question is “Who am I now?” The answer is: Pure Spirit.

Being able to turn away from interpreting events that rock our world is a great act of Self-Love that helps us to tune into our true identity as perfect and pure Spirit. This then becomes a time of great healing. We must let go of ego attachments and see what’s really true. It’s not fun, but it’s powerfully productive for our spiritual growth.

I’ve stood by many a person as they walk through this intensity of density and seen the quantum leap of growth that they can embody and then share with those around them. This is a profound aspect of our journey, and the way to appreciate it is to accept what is and remember to reach for the truth. The truth is always our liberator, and valuing it is an act of Love for our Creator and ourselves!

Full Moon Healing

Wednesday, February 20th, 2019

Have you noticed that there’s been some super intense energy in the last few days? I noticed it most intensely Monday and Tuesday morning. This often happens around the time of the full moon! The moon just went full last night and that usually helps bring some relief.

Full moon is a time of healing through releasing what no longer serves. Full moon is also a time of harvest – harvesting the wisdom from our experiences and then releasing any and all attachments – that’s what a full moon healing ceremony is for!

What a time of healing this is! Let’s call forth an amazing healing and release all blocks to Love!

Many believe that extraordinary spiritual growth and expansion are impossible. I used to feel that way. The growth I desired felt so elusive. I just concluded that it was because there was something wrong with me that made it impossible for me.

What’s so cool is that even though I believed it couldn’t work for me, I was willing to shift. My willingness has brought tremendous healing.

So many of the people who begin the year in Masterful Living feel that the healing, expansion and life they desire is not possible for them. They have doubt that what they desire could ever be theirs.

At the end of every year, I talk with folks who, at the beginning of the year, were unbelievers – but not anymore!

Let me just tell you how grateful I feel that I have followed my guidance even when it was REALLY hard for me. I am so grateful and here’s why:

It’s because of hearing people’s stories of what changed for them in our Masterful Living community.

Imagine starting the year feeling that this is the year you’re going to file for divorce. It’s clear, the writing is on the wall in every room of your house. You and your spouse just aren’t compatible and there’s nothing you can do about it – you’ve tried everything you can think of.

But then, you decided to really live a simple spiritual practice. You decided to give the relationship to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing and you made the effort to leave it on the altar and begin to hold the vision for a holy relationship. And your relationship began to improve and heal and become something really beautiful. I see it happen every year to many people in our community.

Year after year, I hear the beautiful and truly profound stories of people making the mental shifts that heal their life and relationships.

And the healing happens even though they don’t believe.

It’s life-changing.
When we experience these kinds of healing, then we’re changed forever.

I invite you to really go for it this coming year – focus on your willingness!

Cultivate a willingness to learn that the miracles will happen for you when you’re willing to practice and give Spirit a chance.

I have collected so many beautiful stories. Each one is a precious jewel.

It does take willingness. And that’s what spiritual community helps with. Together, we hold the light for each other so we don’t give up.

One time I spoke with someone who had decided to give up and drop out of class. She was so sure it couldn’t work for her that she was all set to withdraw.

And then she talked with someone in the community about it and changed her mind.

And now, she’s helping others to not give up, because where she was once constantly worried, she’s found peace. And she’s so grateful now she’s inspired to help others in achieving their goals with their spiritual practice. She was CONVINCED it couldn’t work for her, but it did.

We replace the old thought with the new thought and we’re on our way to a new experience of Peace and Harmony! It’s easier than you think to change everything in your mind and your life, if you’re willing.

Also – if you’re willing, come away with me for your healing!

Awakening Now!

Friday, February 8th, 2019

I AM focused on healing. I don’t have any problem telling anyone who’s interested that I’m actively working on my healing. And I share my healing with everyone because we’re one.

I used to have the experience of “2 steps forward and 1.99 steps back” – I had that experience a lot. It was really painful. I had lots of self-judgment and self-inflicted pain and suffering, berating myself for not doing better.

Yes, I’ve experienced growth for decades, but there were so many set backs that I often felt ashamed because I couldn’t seem to do better. Now, all that has changed.

I feel a steady progressive healing. I have learning experiences, but no set backs. Why? Because I’m not judging myself for being a learner. I’m SO grateful that I can be a learner. I LOVE being a learner.

This year, I’m so willing to rock this healing, learning journey!

I’ve been amazed that I could accomplish the amount of healing that I’ve had so far, and I’m going for the total healing. I’m focusing on waking up. All of the ways that don’t serve me are being brought to the Light for healing, and I’m grateful for that.

We have so much support from the invisible. Let’s accept it.

Let’s allow the healing to happen and not get in the way of it, anymore.

Let’s DECIDE to make this year the year that we choose the highest level of healing that we can hold. No more delays. Now is the time for us.

Let’s truly allow ourselves to be learners, without judgment, harvesting the Wisdom that we learn from making errors. When we seem to fall off track, we get back on track by having compassion for ourselves.

Compassion is Love, and Love is our healer, because Love is our true identity. When we choose loving choices, we are choosing to align with Truth and that is liberating.

This is a year of spiritual liberation. This is the year of our reveling in the Light! I claim it and I allow it! And so, it is!

Are you ready to rock this year of spiritual liberation? Let’s do it together! What Joy awaits us?!

I Love A Bully

Wednesday, February 6th, 2019

Have you ever been bullied? I have. Have you ever been the bully? I have. I’ve been on both sides of the experience and what I’ve learned is that the one who acts like a bully is really offering a cry for Love.

Often times. the person who seems like a bully feels so weak and helpless that the only they choice they can see. in order to regain their footing and their sense of self. is to try to push other people around. People who act like a bully will bully themselves. too.

The one who bullies is usually afraid. because they’re convinced that if they don’t get their way that things will be bad, wrong, and unbearable. They are so afraid that things will go badly that they will be willing to ruin their relationships in order to get their way. It’s a form of temporary insanity.

Any form of anger or cruelty is temporary insanity. Let’s have compassion for the one who behaves insanely. Let’s have compassion for the one who is so afraid that they have to intimidate others in order to feel safe. There’s no safety in intimidation. It’s pure insanity.

Having compassion doesn’t mean that we tolerate their behavior. It means not returning the attack, but responding with Love, like the students who were trained in nonviolence during the 1960’s Civil Rights movement.

It might seem hard to believe that the one who acts like a bully feels weak and afraid, but it’s true. Having compassion for the person who feels weak and afraid, even if they’re acting like a bully, can be healing and transformative.

A person who behaves like a bully is often expressing anger – and that anger is really a sign of fear and hurt. Let’s stop looking at the surface and treating the symptoms – let’s go to the root cause and do our healing work!

Let’s extend Love and compassion to the one who acts like a bully – whether it’s oneself or someone else. The healing always starts with our willingness.

Interacting with someone who acts like a bully, whether it’s internal or external, is no fun. However, healing is always available to us when we are willing to choose Love.

Choosing Love isn’t always easy, sometimes it is tremendously challenging – and, in my experience, it’s ALWAYS worth the effort. In fact, the more challenging it is to choose Love, the more benefit there is for us in making the loving choice.

Let’s choose Love today! Let’s find compassion in our hearts for those who behave like a bully. Let’s expand our ability to choose Love to the maximum. Let’s maximize all of the healing opportunities there are for us. Let’s really go for it this year!!

Lessons of Love

Tuesday, February 5th, 2019

Love never fails and ego always fails. It’s the truth of life, and it’s borne out every single day of our lives. We can learn from our expressions of Love and, when we do, it awakens our remembrance of the truth – it’s liberating.

If I could give you some knowledge, some insight, some healing awareness, it would be the belief that you can never fail, because you are Love and Love never fails.

For me, the way that I have learned this is to place my faith and trust in Love. The way I have learned that Love never fails, that the Light of God can never fail, is to be in service to the Light – to live in service to the Light, and it is through being that, living that, doing that, that I’ve come to know and understand that Love and Light cannot fail.

Now, I can see that the only failure there is is the “failure to communicate” Love. And yet, when it seems that we’ve failed to be loving, because of Love and the Power of Love, there is always learning and so Love wins.

What would you invest yourself in, if you knew you couldn’t fail? Be the Love in that thing and you will not fail, you cannot fail.

My invitation to you today is to practicing being of service to the Light through all that you do today. It’s about being Love in your mind and shining that forth into all of your activities. People cannot fail to notice and be inspired, too. And in this way, we share our success with everyone!

This is precisely why the #1 benefit people see in their lives during my Masterful Living Course is the transformation of their relationships. The healing happens in our hearts and spreads to everyone we know. It’s truly miraculous and so inspiring!

The Last Mile

Friday, February 1st, 2019

Imagine that you’re a long distance runner in a marathon race.

You’re running and running and it’s tiring.

Your muscles become depleted, weary and sore.

Your feet and back ache.

You may feel like giving up, because you’d like the pain to be over.

You just want to stop.

Maybe you complain about the scenery along the way.

Maybe you resent and judge the company you meet along the way.

Maybe it feels like you’re running through a valley of shadows and death.

And yet, you cannot actually stop until you cross the finish line.

The only option you have is to drag the race out.

You can fall to your knees and begin to crawl.

You can sit down and wallow in your misery.

If you choose, you can make it more painful, more intense.

Or, you can use your mind to rise above it and keep thine eye single.

You can use every part of your experience to refine your mind and strengthen your awareness of what’s true and what’s not.

You can rejoice to know the journey is coming to an end and your victory is certain.

You’re in the last bit now. You can pick up the pace,or you can slow down. It’s up to you.

You can complain that it’s not over yet and lengthen your experience of the journey, or you can rejoice that your victory is in sight.

The I AM offers us ALL the strength we need to make it to victory. Ask and it is given!

I AM the strength, the courage, the power to move forward steadily through all experiences, whatever they may be, and remain joyous and uplifted, filled with Peace and Harmony at all times by the Glorious Presence which “I AM.” Victory is mine! Victory is mine! Victory is mine!

The basic decision of the miracle-minded
is not to wait on time any longer than is necessary.
Time can waste as well as be wasted.
A Course in Miracles

Are you willing to put the I AM Presence / Higher Holy Spirit Self in charge of your journey to carry you to the end?

Tomorrow: SUPER Early Bird Ends on Saturday  Spring Clearing Retreat March 20 to 24 – with Lisa Natoli, Corinne Zupko, Jon Mundy, myself and more!  Plus, Jon Mundy and I are offering our Lead & Create A Workshop teacher training which includes certification to lead my Forgive & Be Free Workshop!  March 14 to 20.

Prayer Partners

Thursday, January 31st, 2019

Right now I’m visiting my BFF, Rev. Karen Russo in Scottsdale, Arizona and I feel blessed. Karen and I have been Prayer Partners for more than 20 years, and our relationship is so clean and clear. We’re 100% in support of each other.

I have my “spiritual posse” of Prayer Partners that are the best-est of friends, and it’s a powerful and beautiful thing to have a solid relationship that is completely about support and celebration of our divinity and Wholeness. My Prayer Partners are my best friends, and I can count on them to join with me and remember the truth with me. We each feel secure in the knowledge that we’re supported at a profound and fundamental level. It’s spiritual security.

Many desire to have spiritual expansion, to feel that deep and fulfilling connection with Spirit. Many yearn simply to be at Peace. And still, there’s resistance and reluctance. Sometimes it seems endless and oppressive – but there’s a cure. It’s the willingness to look within to find the Kingdom of God, where it is actually located.

There’s no substitute for doing the inner work, and there’s no greater way I know than to be able to do it with like-minded souls. Because we resist it so much, it’s a great relief to know that when we gather together, two or more, we can have extraordinary breakthroughs and healing. There’s power in joining!

I encourage you to find a group, a Prayer Partner, a community and commit to the highest level of healing that you’re willing to accept. Now is the time of great healing – let’s say YES and invite the Higher Holy Spirit Self to join us with like-minded souls for our healing!

This is why I LOVE retreats. We get so much ACCOMPLISHED in our healing. It’s beautiful to experience!
