Anger, Peace & Miracles

Saturday, September 5th, 2020

Today, the beautiful and brilliant kironJ Gardner is offering an extended workshop on Anger, Peace & Miracles. These are some things I know a LOT about. I sure wish I could have taken a workshop like this when I needed it so much.

For the first few decades of my life, I had some real anger issues that ruled my life and wreaked havoc in my relationships and my sense of self. Now, I can see that the anger I felt propelled me to find a spiritual solution and that’s led to the best part of my life.

From about 1997 to 2006, I studied the teachings of Ernest Holmes in my training to become a Science of Mind Practitioner and Minister. One of the helpful things I took from Holmes’ teachings is the difference between feelings and emotions. It’s valuable for us to understand the difference between when we’re having an emotional response or reaction and when we’re experiencing a feeling.

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

I became afraid of my emotions and anger was the only one that felt safe to me.

Anger is actually an emotional protective device.

When I realized that I could learn to have trust and place my faith in Spirit, when I began to really practice BEING loving, that’s when my emotional life changed profoundly. I stopped having to stuff my emotional baggage and hide it.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I’m getting ready for my Stop Playing Small Online Retreat in just 2 weeks. If you’d really like to do this healing work of letting go of complaints and the other things that stand in our way of happiness and Peace, consider joining us. You can change your entire life, your relationships, your experience, your finances, your body, your happiness and peace of mind. Consider this:

You will never regret your choice, and you’ll only be so glad you did – at least that’s what I hear from the people who have done it.

Get going. Take action. Be aggressive about working with your mind. DO NOT DELAY. If you’re waiting, if you’re not getting the results you’d like, what are you waiting for?

Don’t take my word for it, read the testimonials from those who have done this work with me. They believed that nothing would work for them, and they were willing to do something different anyway. Now, they’re not playing small anymore. They’re not letting fear dictate their life. They have a real and powerful connection with Spirit.

If you’re ready to make a change, and you’d like some REAL support to make a LASTING change, TAKE ACTION! If you’re interested in either my Stop Playing Small Online Retreat or Finding Freedom From Fear Online Spiritual Bootcamp, but you aren’t sure if either is right for you right now, book an Exploratory Call with one of the spiritual counselors. The call is free and you’ll find benefit in addition to getting all your questions answered. Click here now to book an Exploratory Call with a Spiritual Counselor.

Receptive to Miracles

Wednesday, August 19th, 2020

Life is so interesting. It’s full of demonstrations, meaning that life is consistently demonstrating in accordance with what we’re thinking. Life can’t help it. That’s the divine design – life corresponds to what we believe and what we think, what we energize and what we are focused on.

I find that more and more I’m holding in my mind that everything is working together for my good and there are absolutely no exceptions whatsoever. I’m looking for the good. I’m allowing the good. I’m assured of the good.

Last weekend I was moving out of the house I’d been renting for the previous three months. I had hoped to stay there for a year or more, but the house was recently sold, right after I moved in. So, my moving day was this past Saturday.

I had made arrangements to have help with the moving, but one of the key people wasn’t able to make it. That would have been very difficult, but out of the blue, someone else I’d never met turned up. He saved the day for us.

Things like that happen for me all the time.

Expecting miracles works when you really are willing to receive them.

I used to feel that it was better that I do everything myself so that it could be done well. Now, I prefer to hold that everyone in my life is supporting me with excellence to the very best of their ability – and I mostly find that to be the case.

There’s always going to be stuff that’s happening that we would prefer to be different, but if we can focus on what we’d like and what we do like, then we’re staying positive and mostly happy and because like attracts like, the happiness multiplies and magnifies.

PLUS, if we can stay in gratitude, there’s more and more good to be had. Gratitude magnetizes the good into our life. If you don’t believe me, test it for yourself. If you DO believe me, test it for yourself. Testing it proves that it works and the we all have more good in our lives because when one is lifted ALL are lifted.

I’m so grateful that I became willing to be supported at the most profound levels. I have a whole different experience of my life because of it.

We are blessed. We are SO blessed.

AND we do have to be willing to accept it and allow it and give up the resistance and reluctance. We can’t be passive in our awakening – we must be actively calling it forth and accepting it. That’s our part that only we can do.

Look in your heart – how willing are you to actually accept the miracles that are yours to receive?

Have you rejected any miracles lately? I used to reject miracles every day. Now, I am open to receiving them and I’d like to be even more receptive! Let’s do it together!

TAKE ACTION! If you’re interested in either my Stop Playing Small Retreat or Finding Freedom From Fear Spiritual Bootcamp, but you aren’t sure if it’s right for you right now, book an Exploratory Call with one of the spiritual counselors. The call is free and you’ll find benefit in addition to getting all your questions answered. Click here now to book an Exploratory Call with a Spiritual Counselor.

The Purpose of A Course in Miracles

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2019

The purpose of A Course in Miracles is to train our minds. Just like reading a book cannot train our body, reading a book cannot train our minds. That doesn’t even seem logical.

Imagine reading Julia Child’s classic text “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” and then thinking that you are now a French chef. That would be preposterous. It would be delusional.

That’s why people are continuously telling me they’ve studied A Course in Miracles for years with little change in their lives. Their ego is driving their spiritual growth, and not much is happening.

We think that we know the Course just because we can quote it, but that’s not the same as living it. I learned this the hard way. I studied for so long, and knew the spiritual principle without living it. And I wondered why I wasn’t making more progress.

I didn’t see what was so obvious – that living the Course from my heart was the thing that would change my life.

Collecting spiritual information is a huge distraction. Being a spiritual know-it-all will not win any points or bring any benefit.

Being loving, kind, generous of heart, patient and compassionate – that’s the ticket.

“The purpose of the Workbook is to train your mind in a systematic way to a different perception of everyone and everything in the world.” From the A Course in Miracles Workbook Introduction

In Masterful Living Class last night, I was sharing that in this world, every day is “Opposite Day”. The ego is a thought system of illusions and delusions where nothing is what it seems. Spirit is the truth, it is Love, it is liberation.

Understanding the purpose of A Course in Miracles helps us to appreciate its value. That’s why I’m sharing about it on my radio show today!

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? Please let me know your answer in the comments section below!

How to Keep From Failing

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

When we put the ego in charge we’re guaranteed to fail. When we put spirit in charge, we’re guaranteed success. It’s not a mystery, it’s a tried and true formula for expansion and Joy!

The challenge is that so often we get attached to an idea of what success is. We can get so attached to what we think it is, what it looks like, what it sounds like, what it feels like, and how it’s being demonstrated.

Have you ever worked SO hard to accomplish something and you finally made it, only to find out that it didn’t bring you the happiness you thought it would? I have! It’s so crazy! You’re a success, but you feel like a failure because you fulfilled the ego’s idea of success not Spirits.

When we put Spirit in charge, we cannot fail.
When we put ego in charge, even we meet our goal, it can feel like a failure.

There are so many ways that we can go off down a long and winding road to what we think will be success only to realize that it’s not what we’d really like at all. That’s where self-forgiveness sets us free.

Everything works together for our good and there’s not one exception except in the opinion of the ego. Isn’t that wonderful? EVERYTHING works for our good. No exceptions!

Let’s not make anymore exceptions.
Let’s forgive ourselves for having made exceptions in the past.
Our success IS in our willingness to let Spirit lead us and guide us to the highest and best every day, in every way!

A lot more is to come on my radio show today!

Peace Training

Thursday, July 5th, 2018

People often ask me what to do about the situations in the world that they don’t like and upset them. As you may know, A Course in Miracles tells us, “seek not to change the world, but to change our mind about the world.” ACIM is very clear how important it is that we not invest the energy of our thought and attention into things that we wish were different. Our response-ability is to hold the vision of perfect Peace and Love – and by vision, I really mean, to hold in our mind that Peace prevail on earth. That Love is all there is.

My prayer is that Peace prevail and also that truth prevail.

In a world where there is so much deceit and lying with intent to disrupt and disturb, we must hold that truth will prevail, and that Peace is our natural state.

I sometimes feel called to simply sit, pray, meditate and contemplate that Peace is here now. Perfection is here now. It’s not in the future. It’s now. Now is all there is. Let me BE the Peace.

Other times, I feel called to speak and share.

Sometimes, I feel called to go to a march, or a meeting and simply hold the vibration of Love and Peace.

Spirit is directing us, always guiding us. Prayer is the most powerful tool we have. ACIM tells us it is the medium of miracles.

Let us pray to KNOW the truth,
to BE the Peace and,
to extend the Perfect Love of God that we already are.

This is our training.
This is how we change our mind about the world.
This is how we reveal the new heaven and the new earth – NOW!

Coping

Friday, April 27th, 2018

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 abou things. If I’m attached to that false perspective, is it even possible that I’d be interested in solving my problems?

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.

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 have settled. If you’re willing to be more loving every day you’ll notice you feel empowered to make changes rather than continue to cope.

When we 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. Now’s the time for for us to shine the Light of Love into every day!

STARTS MONDAY: My Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive is not just a professional training, it’s a deeply healing opportunity to let go of false beliefs. If you read the things people have said about how their lives change as a result, you will see that this is an opportunity for profound lasting personal healing.

If you’re willing, let’s do it 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. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive starting on Monday.

We’re an expanding global spiritual community of prayerful people willing to be co-workers with God. We’re waking up together and finding freedom in our hearts. I’m so grateful for this!

Attuning to My Prosperous Nature

Wednesday, March 28th, 2018

I used to believe that it’s better to give than to receive. Now, I know that’s crazy ego thinking. Being in tune with the infinite REQUIRES us to be good receivers.

Giving and receiving are really the same. A Course in Miracles says, “To have, give all to all.” Giving isn’t better than receiving it’s part of the same circle.

To be a good receiver, receive. Be receptive. Be receptive to the answered prayer. Believe it or not, this is critical step that many spiritual students neglect because they mistakenly believe it’s better to give than to receive.

The only place there is to receive from is infinite Spirit.
If we’re not receiving from Spirit then we won’t have much to share.
Everything worth having comes from Spirit.
Whether it comes from a person in the world, from the earth or as a thought.

One source.
One supply.

People who withhold Love and kindness often struggle with prosperity, even though it may seem as if they’re abundant. There are many aspects to being prosperous. It’s a good night’s sleep, healthy digestion and elimination. Having a bounce in your step and an easy smile. People can have lots of money and have none of those things.

There’s only one. We’re all connected. If we withhold from One we withhold from all, because all IS one. If we have kindness for some, but not for all, we will feel the effect. Our withholding takes us out of the flow of Love. The flow of Love IS the flow of Prosperity. Love and Prosperity are not separable. They are one.

If we close our heart to Love we close your life to Prosperity and Abundance. We may have wealth, but it won’t be enough and it won’t satisfy. That’s just how life is.

True Abundance and Prosperity comes from knowing our connection in Spirit, with Spirit.

If we seek to punish people with unkindness we will feel the lack and limitation being reflected back to us. What goes around, comes around, and it usually comes with increased energy. Especially now, in this time of instant karma. One way to tell if it’s karma: if it bothers you, it’s life showing us where we have some work to clear our heart. Let’s get to it!! No more delays!! We’ve played small long enough.

I like to look for ways to be more generous with my patience, kindness, and respect and in doing so I discover a greater flow of Prosperity comes with the opening of my heart!

Let’s all be PERFECT givers and receivers of Love. That’s true Prosperity, and it’s ours for the allowing. Now is our time to shine and share! Yes!

Changing our lives and healing our minds is so much easier in community. We are an expanding global spiritual community of prayerful people willing to be co-workers with God. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of April. 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.

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!

TODAY is my Sacred Circle day! This is my monthly membership program that gives you a weekly call of group spiritual counseling. Join my Sacred Circle and you can ask me any question you would like on the phone, on line or in writing! I love it! We have an awesome group of people who are doing the deep work! Try my Sacred Circle for a month and see! 4 spiritual counseling calls with me each month – ask me any question! Join me live or get the download later.

We’re waking up together and finding freedom in our hearts. I’m so grateful for this!

Healing Anxiety with ACIM

Tuesday, March 27th, 2018

A Course in Miracles is a clear road map for undoing all that ails us, and most especially for releasing depression and anxiety – this I absolutely KNOW!

My beautiful friend Corinne Zupko has written a very helpful book ALL about healing anxiety, and trust me, she KNOWS about it, and she’s a dedicated ACIM student. That’s why I’m having her as a guest on my radio show today!

And, I’ve also invited her to teach a two-part class on the topic of Healing Anxiety with ACIM so we can all learn from her!

So much healing is possible, and sometimes, when we’ve struggled for many years, we start to believe that miraculous healing is for others, but not for us, and I’m hear to say THAT’S NOT TRUE. We are entitled to miracles!

I’m so glad that we’re discovering the clear path of our healing and we’re allowing ourselves to experience it. That’s what is so great about practicing ACIM together.

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. We are an expanding global spiritual community of prayerful people willing to be co-workers with God. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of April. (If you can’t make this Counseling Training in May, there will be one in October.)

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!

TODAY RADIO SHOW: my topic is Corinne Zupko – From Anxiety to Love

You can listen in LIVE on my radio show – click here for details – or you can click here to get the download later at iTunes or Stitcher for Android.

And for more details about Corinne’s class on Healing Anxiety with ACIM you can click to learn more.

It’s time for us to live a life of Freedom and Joy and together, we’re getting there!

Spirit Has What It Takes!

Saturday, March 17th, 2018

Doesn’t it sometimes seem like a miracle that we can change our minds and stop making a mess of our lives? For a long time I was so AMAZED at the transformation I was experiencing. I had no idea that it was possible for me to change my mind with so much ease and grace. Who knew?

We can all live a miraculous life. We’re entitled to miracles – that’s what it says in A Course in Miracles. We naturally experience what feels like a miraculous flow of Love and support when we align with Love in our hearts and hold ourselves accountable. It can feel surprising and even shocking!

Once we really understand the power of our thinking then we can actively choose to work in the invisible and be effective every day in being truly helpful. What a blessing it is to feel and know that you are truly helpful.

What does working in the invisible mean?

A Course in Miracles and all truth teachings tell us: ALL thought produces form at some level.

  • Form is our experience.
  • Form is what we see and feel and hear.
  • You will see it when you believe it.
  • It is done onto you as you believe, not as you wish.

We’ve all been studying this for so long that we think we know it. For so long I had an INTELLECTUAL understanding, but I didn’t take it down into my heart and live it and so I didn’t actually KNOW it. I knew that I didn’t really know it because every day I gave my self permission to choose unloving thoughts, words and actions and I saw the mess that created.

For so long I labored in vain trying to MAKE things happen by working in the DENSITY of form rather than working in the ease and grace of the invisible. I struggled and worked so hard with just enough success to keep me crawling along, but I wanted to FLY! And my intuition told me it was possible, but HOW? I finally decided to do WHATEVER IT TOOK to live in a beautiful, masterful way and learn how to LIVE spiritual principle rather than just study it.

It might seem that you don’t have what it takes, but that, my friend, is just an opinion. Spirit always has what it takes to be it’s beautiful, powerful Self!

Spiritual Community is a powerful healing experience. It’s a living, loving, beautiful expression of Spirit’s Love. We are an expanding global spiritual community of prayerful people willing to be co-workers with God. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of April. (If you can’t make this Counseling Training in May, there will be one in October.)

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!

We’re waking up together and finding freedom in our hearts. I’m so grateful for this!

The End of Lack

Thursday, March 8th, 2018

The most basic principles of the teachings of Jesus have transformed my life because I applied them. Studying them didn’t really help me. In fact, much of the time, because of my studies, I actually felt badly about myself because I judged myself as failing at what I was learning.

I would try to comfort myself with telling myself that I was doing so much by studying the teachings, but I knew in my heart that it wasn’t true.

For a long time, I thought that living in alignment with principle would be so hard that I couldn’t do it. I also had the belief that if I lived in alignment with principle I’d have to give up everything that gave me relief from my suffering. Neither of these beliefs was true.

I’ve learned that if the thought doesn’t make me happy, it’s probably not true and therefore I don’t need it anymore.

It took courage for me to have faith and place my trust in Spirit that if I gave up the things that I thought I liked and the things that I thought I needed, I would actually be happier. In the process I learned that I didn’t really have to give them up, but I did have to give up my attachment – I had to give up the needing, the wanting and the craving.

Needing, wanting and craving is all a sign of feeling disconnected from Spirit. The disconnect is intensified when we worship false idols.

Our bodies can be false idols.
Our loved ones can be false idols.
Our jobs can be false idols.

Where there is needing, wanting and craving, there are false gods and idols.

We can give the cravings to Spirit for healing.
We can discover that we’re whole and lacking and nothing, but we must actively choose it. That’s our willingness. That’s the way – willingness is the way!

With our active decision to be willing, and our choice to give up needing, wanting, craving, we find ourselves moving into a period of true prosperity. We discover the end of lack.

Life is amazing. Our healing is at hand. Let’s choose it and go together, NOW!

Your Communication Link with God

Tuesday, March 6th, 2018

A Course in Miracles tells us that we have a Communication Link with God and yet one of the most frequently asked questions I get is: How can I improve my intuition?

Let us consider what our intuition actually is. I love to look at Webster’s dictionary and see what they say. Their official definition is:

1. quick and ready insight
2. a: immediate apprehension or cognition
    b: knowledge or conviction gained by intuition
    c: the power or faculty of attaining to direct knowledge or cognition without evident rational thought and inference

Our intuitive insights come from our relationship with our Higher Holy Spirit Self, our TRUE Self. It’s a divine dialogue, or conversation that is instantaneous and it doesn’t take time.

Like prayer itself, intuition isn’t governed by time and space. Intuition is our own “direct knowledge.” And that knowledge is profoundly helpful. It SAVES time and it averts suffering when we listen and follow.

No matter how often we choose NOT to listen and follow, we are never judged or punished. How amazing and cool is that?

Spirit doesn’t punish, because it doesn’t judge.

ACIM tells us in the 11th Miracle Principle, “Prayer is the medium of miracles. It is a means of communication of the created with the Creator. Through prayer love is received, and through miracles love is expressed.

Now is the time for us to truly LIVE these teachings of A Course in Miracles and that’s why I’m feeling called to offer a free class this Thursday, March 8th. My topic is Living A Course in Miracles. This is a free class so anyone can join – and I’ll be taking questions.

Abundance Accelerator

Monday, March 5th, 2018

I didn’t and wouldn’t believe it until I experienced it myself. Truly. It didn’t make sense to me. I pondered it, but I couldn’t comprehend it until I gave myself the gift of it.

There is a way to remove the blocks to abundance and it’s not what we might think it is.

Many of us have worked and worked to experience more financial flow in our lives, when there’s a much easier way that brings SO MUCH benefit, it’s faster and available to EVERYONE.

First of all, I’ve known a number of people who were multi-millionaires who were definitely abundant and prosperous if you define abundance as having money. However, some of them also taught me that if you’re not in the flow of Love, then no matter how much money you have, it’s likely you will not feel abundant – you won’t truly be able to enjoy the abundance.

It surprised me to discover that a major block to the flow of abundance is unforgiveness.

Many of us get intensely triggered over money issues. When there’s a struggle financially, it’s often tied to blame, regret and resentment. I discovered this myself, and I found out because I made the commitment to let go of the blame, regret and resentment. Importantly, I had to forgive myself for being in my own way for so long.

A Course in Miracles tells us that all forgiveness is self-forgiveness.

Jesus also gave us the Lord’s Prayer which says, “And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.”

When we let go of our judgment of others, we’re actually forgiving our own selves for all of our past debts, and our trespasses. Why? Because we are eternally one.

When I realized that I was DONE with blaming people for things, that’s when I finally began the road to let go of creating debt and feeling the burden of debt.

ACIM says, “Whenever you act egotistically towards another, you are throwing away the graciousness of your indebtedness and the holy perception it would produce.” In other words, our natural spiritual state of being is incapable of debt. When we recognize this, we’ll have the clarity of mind – the holy perception – of our holiness, and all illusion of debt will dissolve into the nothingness from which it has arisen.

And this is why I teach forgiveness, because it has brought me back to my true Self and that has shown me the gift of grace that we all have. I am so grateful that I could forgive myself and let go of the past, truly and completely.

I consider it my calling to support people in doing this deep forgiveness work – it’s very challenging to do it on our own, it’s so much easier to do it with others.

This year at the Power of Love Ministry, we’re expanding into training ministers as well as spiritual counselors. I am dedicated to supporting those who have the courage to step up and out into being of greater service with their life by being more compassionate, and becoming great listeners and demonstrators of Love.

Spiritual Community is a powerful and healing experience. It’s a living, loving, beautiful expression of Spirit’s Love. We are an expanding global spiritual community of prayerful people willing to be co-workers with God. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of April.

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.

Prayer is the foundation of all that I share. Prayer is a power tool to help us accelerate the healing of our mind.

It’s extraordinary how simple the most helpful tools can be. Prayer has changed my life and improved the quality of every day.

Unexpected Blessings

Sunday, March 4th, 2018

Spiritual Community is a powerful and healing experience. It’s a living, loving, beautiful expression of Spirit’s Love. I’m getting ready to offer another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of April.

I’m so clear that this Power of Love ministry is about empowering people to stop playing small and to move forward in following their passion, healing their relationships and stepping into a life they truly Love and find fulfilling.

I remember so well how strongly blocked I felt. I now understand that the blocks were 100% in our mind and that my prayers, opened the way for me to lead a very fulfilling life that I dearly Love and enjoy. I feel so blessed.

Prayers bring forth the blessing in unexpected ways. I find that prayer is a fear dissolver, and a problem solver. When we use our mind effectively, we not only bring ourselves benefit, we share the benefits with all beings, because we’re sharing the same mind.

In my counseling training, I train the counselors to use prayer as a healing modality in their counseling sessions. As practitioners of prayer we rely upon Spirit to bring the perfect answer to the prayer.

As a counselor, I don’t know what the answered prayer is, and I don’t need go guess or speculate, I have learned to trust Spirit. People come for counseling thinking that the answered prayer is one thing when its actually not that thing at all.

Have you ever prayed for someone in your life to stay with you? Maybe the answered prayer was for that person to go. Maybe you wished for someone to leave – and the best thing was for them to stay. Through prayer we can learn to trust and to accept the answer prayer – to feel the clear answer so that we don’t reject it.

It’s a powerful thing to train your mind to accept the answered prayer rather than try to direct God as to what the answer “should” be.

Learning to hold a healing space of intention, aspiration and acceptance for others has been a great mind training for me. It’s why I decided to start training people to be spiritual counselors – and support them in no longer playing small anymore.

So much healing is possible – let’s participate fully and train our minds to hold the higher vision. Let’s offer UP our resistance and reluctance and holder a healing space of Love for everyone in our lives and all beings on this earth.

Calling forth unexpected blessings is our work to do. Let’s do it together.

It’s extraordinary how simple the most helpful tools can be. Prayer is a power tool to help us accelerate the healing of our mind.

Prayer has changed my life and improved the quality of every day. I say pray, and pray often. Let us all live a life of prayer without ceasing.

Asking for assistance is different than a prayer. If you’re interested in learning more about what I share about prayer, you can check out my Prayer Power class and begin right now! Click here now to learn more now.

Let Spirit Decide

Saturday, March 3rd, 2018

One of the things that gets in the way of our living a highly functional spiritual life is that we can feel that we know what’s best. We get attached to what we think will make us happy, even though we’ve had so many experiences in our life that absolutely prove to us behind a shadow of a doubt that we don’t know what will make us happy. It’s insane.

What about this? Instead of telling God what we want, what if we decided to just BE happy and let Spirit guide us there? What if we focused entirely on cultivating the willingness to follow the path of inspiration?

Following the path of inspiration does require us to LET GO of what we think will make us happy.

What I’ve come to understand is that what ACIM teaches about prayer is that our happiness actually comes from giving up what we think will make us happy and opening ourselves to being in the flow of Love which truly is the only thing that is actually fulfilling and happy-making.

If our answered prayer is a thing, a condition, a circumstance then it’s temporary and because of that we’ll ultimately come to see that it cannot fulfill us, it can only temporarily make us feel full. There’s a big difference between feeling temporarily satiated and a sense of fulfillment.

Our answered prayer is actually a release of false identification and a stepping into a realignment with our true identity. This is a shift that Spirit will figure out for us and we can be led and guided to it – if we’re willing to accept that the answered prayer is not in this world. It’s in our mind.

We are not in this world.
We are infinite eternal Spirit.

When our mind is changed/healed,
that’s a miracle,
and that’s what changes the world.

ACIM says, “Seek not to change the world, but to change your mind about the world.”

Prayer is a means for changing our mind.
It is the medium of miracles.

Prayer is an active demonstration of our willingness to be in the flow of Love rather than directing the flow of Love. Combine that with the willingness to ACCEPT the answered prayer, HOWEVER it may arrive, and then our mind is no longer rejecting our divinity – we’re in alignment with the divine.

It’s extraordinary how simple the most helpful tools can be. Prayer is a power tool to help us accelerate the healing of our mind.

Prayer has changed my life and improved the quality of every day. I say pray, and pray often. Let us all live a life of prayer without ceasing.

Asking for assistance is different than a prayer. If you’re interested in learning more about what I share about prayer, you can check out my Prayer Power class and begin right now! Click here now to learn more now.

Love It or Leave It

Monday, September 4th, 2017

Yesterday, I spent the entire day cleaning our family home on Deer Isle, Maine.  I had some wonderful helpers, but it still took me all day.  This past week was a week with lots of laundry, cleaning, and gardening, taking care of things at the house before leaving so the renters could enjoy it.

Our family has loved this house my parents built 30 years ago.  We’ve had summer vacations every year since it was built, even before when my parents just had a trailer there.  In order for us to be able to afford to keep it, we rent it most of the summer.  And now we’re renting it for artist and writer retreats year round.  It’s the perfect place for that.

As I’m reviewing my day yesterday, where I was cleaning for about eight hours straight, and after many days of cleaning and organizing, what stands out to me is this:

I don’t like cleaning.  Some people do, but I don’t.  However, I do like having a really clean house.  And so, I did all of that cleaning, and I had no complaints, and no resentments.  I was grateful much of the time and I was happy.

It might not seem like much, but upon review, it’s miraculous!

It’s truly miraculous that I could have spent so many hours this past week cleaning and doing things I don’t enjoy and not be complaining.

I used to be a real whiner and complainer, I kid you not.  My mind was trained to be super critical ALL of the time.  My constant complaining was the cause of great suffering for me and it cost me several relationships.

There are times that when I’m doing something I don’t like, I feel frustrated that there’s an impasse.  The thing breaks, the thing won’t open or close, the thing is thwarting me!  I feel a momentary annoyance, or even a flash of anger, at the thing that is not behaving as I wish.  And then I stop, and I take a breath and I remember that this thing has come to help me to remember that I can choose Peace instead of upset.  I am the one who chooses.  I am the decider and I decide for Peace because I love myself, and I am creating a magnificent life for myself.

If I cannot do it with Love, it’s best to leave it.

Truly, this is what I’ve learned.  If I’m continuing to do something and I’m stewing in my upset, escalating the agitation, that is intensely unloving and I don’t deserve that. I wouldn’t let someone else do it TO me so I won’t do it to myself.

Love it or leave it, I say.
Do it with Love and gratitude or let it go.
This is the way to learn and grow.
This is the way to remember my true identity IS Peace.

I can harvest the Wisdom from what I experienced because I don’t judge myself, and that’s what true forgiveness is, letting go of the judgments.  Without the judgment, I am able to learn from my experiences.  Judgment just keeps me repeating the past.

Every day, I am grateful that I can change my mind.  I celebrate my ability to change and let the past go!  Victory is mine!

There was a time when I thought the ego would always win, but that time has gone and is no more.  Victory is mine!

I invite you, today and every day, to never labor in vain.  When we’re laboring with agitation and frustration then we’re laboring in vain.  It’s only going to bring more suffering.  It’s healthier to take a step back, align with Spirit and be victorious.

If you do that once per day, with something you don’t like, your entire life will change.  Believe me, I know.  Try it and feel the difference, and then together, we can say:  Victory is ours!

Blessings

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

In the first year of my yearlong Masterful Living Course, someone shared that their goal was to have their knee-jerk reaction be Love and compassion.  We all loved the feeling of that and we began to live with that aspiration.  Having a loving aspiration that’s the foundation of your life will naturally up level your whole life.

When life seems to squeeze you, what’s your default? Is your knee-jerk reaction to open your heart and strengthen your commitment to Love? Or do you go zero to sixty towards frustration and irritation?  Do you start defending or attacking?  Do you become offended easily?  I had all of these in spades.  I used to be so reactive. Now, I’m grateful that I have the capacity to breathe through the challenges, but I didn’t used to.  I’m not at 100% loving responses, but I’m getting closer every day.

What’s so cool is, these moments of challenge actually work FOR us.  There’s a blessing in every challenge if you’re willing to accept it.

What I notice is that life’s detours, delays, and challenges offer us the opportunity to deepen our practice and strengthen our commitment.  The challenges give us the opportunity to express more Love.  When we express more Love, we’re having more healing moments.

I once went to see the AMAZING horse show, Cavalia, as a guest of my dear friend, Ginny who is a horse lover and rider for decades. It was a spectacular show – so uplifting and inspiring! Thrilling to see the way the people and the horses worked together in perfect Unity and Harmony. What a gorgeous expression of Divine Creativity and Joy!

Afterward, in the parking lot, it was a very different story. We we’re sitting and waiting a long time while the traffic was static.  People weren’t that willing to move along in unison – it was “every man for themselves.” People were frustrated and getting out of their cars, impatient and upset that things weren’t going more smoothly.

I didn’t wish to join those around me in irritation and frustration so I prayed. I invited the angels to join us and direct the traffic through us. After all, we’re One Mind. We can do it if we choose.  I’ve learned that I don’t have to go with the crowd.  I can stay partnered up with Spirit and hold a higher vision for us all.  I can do it if I choose.

When there’s a challenge, do you move to prayer? Do you take a breath? Is your knee-jerk reaction to open your heart and extend compassion? I’ve actually learned that these every day challenges give me the perfect opportunity to deepen my practice and be a beneficial presence. We can even turn a parking lot into a sacred space.  I’m grateful for that.  I love practicing it!

What a difference it makes to have the aspiration each day to offer a blessing, receive a blessing, and BE a blessing!  Spirit does the heavy lifting of figuring out how when we allow.

I do believe we can change the default settings if we’re willing. I certainly have, and I’m continuing to up level. We’re always teaching the efficacy of our choices. Let us teach only Love for that is what we are. Now and forever!

No Longer Waiting

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

My beautiful friend, Laurie Schur is a poet, filmmaker, therapist, and all-round beautiful woman and she often shares wonderful and inspiring things with me like this poem.

Life at Midlife

I am no longer waiting for a special occasion; I burn the best candles on ordinary days.

I am no longer waiting for the house to be clean; I fill it with people who understand that even dust is Sacred.

I am no longer waiting for everyone to understand me; it’s just not their task.

I am no longer waiting for the perfect children; my children have their own names that burn as brightly as any star.

I am no longer waiting for the other shoe to drop; It already did, and I survived.

I am no longer waiting for the time to be right; the time is always now.

I am no longer waiting for the mate who will complete me; I am grateful to be so warmly, tenderly held.

I am no longer waiting for a quiet moment; my heart can be stilled whenever it is called.

I am no longer waiting for the world to be at peace; I unclench my grasp and breathe peace in and out.

I am no longer waiting to do something great; being awake to carry my grain of sand is enough.

I am no longer waiting to be recognized; I know that I dance in a holy circle.

I am no longer waiting for Forgiveness.

I believe, I Believe.

Mary Anne Perrone

In reading this beautiful poem, I’m so clear that I, too, am no longer waiting for things that I used to wait for when I was a younger woman.

I like to use the good china even if it’s just me.  I’m not waiting for a special occasion.  I can tell people I love them, without an excuse.   I love you.

I am grateful!

I am choosing to remember that I’m already as holy as holy can be and I’m not waiting to get there!  I am choosing to realize that I am already free and to go there in my mind – no more waiting!

Helpful Learning

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

What’s helpful learning?  It’s when we’re learning something that actually makes a real difference in our lives in terms of improving the quality of our experience.

As a spiritual student, I’ve realized that every day, I can learn things that improve the quality of every day of my life, but in order to do so I have to really be truly willing to relinquish my attachment to how things have been in the past.  I have to be willing to be present in the moment now, because that’s where the Love is and Love is the healer.

If I’m grumbling about the past, and ruminating about my errors in the past, then I’m not open to learn something about the power of Love in this moment.

If I’m thinking things should be different, then I’m not really available for a miracle.  Being open to miracles is ALL about being open to the helpful learning.

Being open to a miracle means being open to see the truth rather than the story I made up about the past.  It’s so helpful to recognize that when I’m upset, I’m clinging to some decision I made in the past and the pain and upset I’m feeling in the current moment isn’t because of what’s happening now, it’s because I’m actually recreating my pain from the past once again.

We often think we have no choice but to experience pain in a situation that we wish were different, but I’ve learned that I can let go of wishing things were different and be grateful for what is even though just a moment ago I was wishing it was different.

Wishing things were different isn’t helpful.  Learning I can let go of wishing it were different and put my attention, instead, on being focused for how I can be open and available for Love now is very helpful.

To dramatically, and I do mean DRAMATICALLY, improve the quality of your life, commit to being grateful for things as they are, even when it’s not what you’d wish for.

On Sunday, this past weekend, I spent 4 hours on the phone with tech support for my computer.  It was two 2 hour sessions.  In between, I went to the movies.  When I got back home from the movie, I found out my phone was missing.  I’d lost it somewhere along the way to or from the movie.

Ultimately, I figured out most of the stuff for my computer, (I’m avoiding spending the money to upgrade to a new computer and sometimes it creates some tricky challenges), and I found my phone when I went back to the movie theatre and felt around in the trash under the seats where I had been sitting earlier that day.

All in all, I probably spent a minimum of 5 hours on Sunday doing things I could have wished I wasn’t doing, but where would that have gotten me?  Instead, I got to be mostly peaceful and harmonious for the whole day and I am grateful for that.  It wasn’t how I intended to invest that time, but Spirit had a different plan.

I don’t know what anything is for except that I know it’s for my good – of this, I am certain and in that certainty lies the Peace of God.  Learning to be certain that everything is for my good is very helpful indeed!

Listen & Follow!

Yesterday, I traveled from New Jersey to Los Angeles and it got a bit interesting.  I had to leave the house at 4:30 a.m. to make a 6 a.m. flight.  As the cab to take me to the airport was arriving, I realized that I couldn’t find my wallet.  I thought that perhaps I’d lost it or dropped it at the restaurant the night before, or in the cab home.  Yikes!  I couldn’t find it anywhere.

I wondered what to do, with no cash, no credit cards, and no driver’s license.  I checked-in on my intuition.  And knew to follow it was the best thing.  Still, that meant leaving with just my passport and a plan to go to the bank when I got to Los Angeles – hoping I wouldn’t need any money along the way.  It’s called faith.

The 15 minutes that it took to look for my wallet, and then get my passport, meant that I was running late.  Then the driver drove really slowly in the raining, dark, pre-dawn trip to the airport.  By the time I got to the airport, it was about 5:15 – only 45 minutes until departure time.  They wouldn’t check my bags, but decided to book me through on the next flight.  I was fine with that.

I waited to have the new arrangements ticketed. While I was weighing my bag, I discovered it was a couple of pounds over. So I opened it up to take out a couple of books and lighten the load.  There was my wallet, right on top.  Thank God for that because if I hadn’t had a few pounds over, I would have had to get a cab from the airport – you can’t rent a car without your driver’s license, and then I would have taken a cab to the bank to cancel my cards and get new ones and it would have been a different day.

I don’t know why Spirit arranged for my incident.  I have no idea why it was for the highest and best.  Maybe it was just to be able to share with you.  Maybe it’s meaningful to you and that’s the reason for it.

What I do is that I’m so glad I listened to my guidance to head to the airport regardless.  I’m glad for everything just as it was.   I got to practice Peace and share my Peace with those along my journey.  I feel that’s a great blessing for me and it was a gift to share.

I have a commitment to demonstrating being in the flow.  The flow is always happening and I can choose to be in it or not.  I know what it feels like to feel outside the flow and separate.  I know what it feels like to block the flow, and I know what it feels like to be one in the flow.  I choose to listen and follow in the flow.

Is there any message you’ve been getting that you’ve been ignoring that you could follow and get more into the flow of Love in your life?

What Miracles Will Come!

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

We asked for it.  We asked for healing.  We asked to be relieved of our pain and suffering.  I certainly have, thousands of times.  And the way this world works, we can have all the healing we desire if we’re willing to give up the thoughts and beliefs that have brought forth our suffering.

So, why is it, when we are so interested in our healing, do we often cling to the same old thoughts and beliefs that created the pain and suffering in the first place.  It’s as if we’re burning ourselves with a hot poker and then complaining that it hurts, that the wounds aren’t healing, and they’re getting infected, but we still won’t stop poking ourselves with a hot poker!

Madness!

What I’ve learned is that it’s profoundly helpful and healing to say to the Higher Holy Spirit Self, the Company of Heaven, Jesus, the angels, Mother Mary, Buddha, Krishna, and the ancestors something like this:

“I’ve decided I’m done with this suffering.  I’m ready.  I’m really willing this time.  I’m ready, willing and available for my healing and I’m not just saying that because I’m done suffering.  I’d like to remember what heaven is and feel it in my heart.  I’m interested in being of service instead of complaining.  I’m willing to serve the light with my WHOLE life and not just when it’s convenient for me.  I’m willing to stop running and hiding and let myself be seen by God and to be fully loved.  Yes, I’m that ready, that willing and that available right now.  This now.  Show me the way!  I’m not in-charge anymore.  Spirit is in-charge.  I am saying YES to Freedom!  That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.  And when I fall down, I will pick myself up with compassion.  When I forget to be compassionate, I will notice the pain is back and start again with compassion.  I am open and available for all manner of assistance.  I am willing.  Help me to help myself and to be truly helpful in this world.  Today is the day, and I AM on my way!”

Say it aloud, with feeling and then keep saying it and you’ll see what miracles will come!

TODAY is my Sacred Circle day!  This is my monthly membership program (only 33 per month) that gives you a weekly call of group spiritual counseling.  Join my Sacred Circle and you can ask me any question you would like on the phone, online, or in writing!  I love it!  We have an awesome group of people who are doing the deep work!  Try my Sacred Circle for a month and see!  4 spiritual counseling calls with me each month – ask me any question!  Join me live or get the download later.  BTW, my Sacred Circle is a free gift for 3 whole months – 12 calls with me – when you sign up for my Finding Freedom Spiritual Boot Camp!

Focused On Love

Monday, March 6th, 2017

One of the challenges every spiritual student I know has is the myriad of distractions that the ego shows up as. One of the main distraction is thinking that we need to accomplish a lot in order to be worthy of Love. I used to think that my sense of self-worth came from what I accomplished in the world. Now, I know that’s crazy thinking and I’m so grateful!

And still, even though I know it’s insane to think that my worth comes from what I do, I still can find myself being distracted by accomplishing things that really don’t make any spiritual difference in my life.

Many times I’ve felt overwhelmed by how much there was to do, so I’ve just decided to do something simple, like get some laundry done, or answer some e-mails, when it would be far more effective to tackle something more taxing.  When the ego senses pressure, sometimes, that’s when the distractions can become mighty appealing.

Keeping a spiritual focus is difficult until you really make up your mind to be focused. What does being focused on spiritual awakening actually mean? For me, it means choosing Love all day long. I miss opportunities every day. Some days, I really get distracted with doing stuff. There’s a lot of doing to get done with a ministry where thousands of people participate. I’ve learned that it’s good for me to take breaks and go back to center and source.

I’ve learned to pray again and again throughout the day. That’s one of the reasons why I created my Daily Prayer and Spiritual Espresso so that we could join together, beyond time and space and remember the real purpose of our lives.

I have friends who are SO good at getting all their errands done and keeping a totally clean, orderly and organized house. I find that I tend to procrastinate on chores in favor of focusing on my spiritual expansion. It’s a matter of priorities. It’s also a matter of what really lights you up and for me, getting chores and errands done isn’t it. I find that they’re a distraction for me. Sometimes, I’ll avoid running an errand or doing a chore until there’s no need to do it. My way isn’t for everyone, but it works for me.

I used to get a sense of accomplishment from getting things done around the house. I used to get that sense of accomplishment from volunteering and being of service. Now, my sense of myself and my sense of accomplishment really does come from being loving and kind.

It’s so wonderful to be genuinely loving and compassionate in situations that used to be challenging and difficult. What a blessing! It’s so completely DO-able! It’s worth going for!

Let’s not be distracted in our ability to choose Love. Let’s give ourselves the gift of cultivating spiritual focus! Together, we’re focused on Love, the only thing there is and the only thing that matters. Sweet!

Retreat with me!

I’m offering a deeply healing, renewing and restoring retreat, March 16 to 19 in New York.  As always on my retreats we’ll have a lot of fun while we’re doing a lot of deep cleansing and clearing of old emotional and mental baggage so that we can live a much higher quality of life and be more available for LOVE.  It’s such a relief to let the negative patterns and resentments, the guilt, shame and blame go!  If you’d like to start your spring with real Clarity and healing, come join me!  Click here for details about my Masterful Living Retreat – the early bird discount EXPIRES TOMORROW – this retreat is open to all – come and bring a friend!

Miraculous Relationship Healing

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

I’ve experienced some extraordinary relationship healing in my life and I’m so very grateful.  For me, there’s been nothing more upsetting to me than the difficulties in my relationships.  They have challenged me to the core of my being.  I’m so glad that I learned that this is precisely what relationships are for.

I’ve learned not to walk away from a difficult relationship.
I’ve learned to never give up on myself or anyone else.

Instead, I’ve come to absolutely know that the thing to do is to give it UP to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for miraculous healing.  This method works, but that doesn’t make it easy.

Relationship attachments can be like an alien parasite.  It makes me think of the terrifying movie, Aliens with Sigourney Weaver (LOVE her!).  Remember when the member of the crew was on the operating table and the alien exploded out of his belly?  I went through a period where I was undoing the ego at such a rapid rate that I felt that I was pregnant with an alien baby terrorist that was trying to eat me alive from the inside.

It’s that feeling when the third chakra is going through such an intense cleansing.  The third chakra, at the solar plexis, is all about our self-perception.  When we’re perceiving ourselves as the ego, the small, selfish self, then it’s a constant battle with an inner terrorist.  We’ll project it outward into ALL of our relationships and never feel self.

When we’re willing to shift identification to the Higher Holy Spirit Self, then we can begin to see clearly what every relationship is for.  Then, we can have holy relationships.  It’s intensely challenging, but THANK GOD, we don’t have to figure out HOW to make it all happen.  We only have to allow.

This is the year where we’re all learning about Self-Love – Self with a capital S.  This is the curriculum, and we can delay, we can avoid, but we’ll still have to do the curriculum eventually.  Let’s get to it!  Heaven is at hand!

The best way to get to it is really focus on loving yourself IN all of your relationships.

I dedicate February to relationships on my weekly radio show.  And this whole month I’ve been doing something different.  We’re still focusing on relationship healing and holy relationships, and this month I’m taking live calls and written in questions to do one-on-one Q&A help, just like I do in my weekly Sacred Circle Spiritual Counseling calls.

Please share with friends, loved ones, and at Facebook – to let people know they can come and ask their relationship questions – I’m only taking questions about relationships.

Here’s the link  to either call in or write in a relationship question today

I Love A Course in Miracles!

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

I never tire of A Course in Miracles.  I never tire of the truth.  It’s so comforting.  I love that every time I pick up A Course in Miracles, I find a treasure that is so familiar and another one that is less well known to me.  It is the gift that keeps on giving.

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

The simplest statements carry so much power and Peace.

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

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

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

Such practical advice!

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

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

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

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

What do you love about ACIM?

Share – To Have, Give All To All

Friday, October 21st, 2016

Yesterday in the Living A Course in Miracles class that’s part of our current series, David Fishman and I were talking about sharing. We have learned the value of sharing. ACIM tells us: To have, give all to all. To have Love, give all Love to All.

To have patience, extend patience;
To have Joy, extend Joy; and
To have Freedom, in your mind, hold those around you as Free, rather than imprison them in your judgments.

Today, I am so blessed. Today, I am sharing a class in my Living A Course in Miracles class series and then another one in the Miracle Share Virtual Conference! What a blessing and you can join me in both.

The Living A Course in Miracles classes are my gift to you – and the Miracle Share Virtual Conference is a modest fee to hear talks by so many different teachers, including me – and they’re on video – plus you can ask questions!

I share so much because I have been given so much. I just LOVE to share what I’m learning. I learn every day and always have more to share! I never get tired of it. It’s my passion.

What are you passionate about that you can share? I’d love to know!

When I stopped judging others, I started to find that others were interested in what I had to share. The more I share, the more I have. That’s the nature of Spirit!

Are you with Holding and feeling the lack?

Love yourself first, then share from your heart – extend Love – and you’ll notice you get to keep more and more – and have more to share, too! To have, give ALL to all!

Ready to have a breakthrough? I’m offering 2 different retreats this year – and they are BOTH to support your releasing what doesn’t serve and stepping into more Peace, more Love, more Joy, and especially FREEDOM – click here for more info on upcoming retreats. Come join me for a deep healing, fun, play, restoration and renewal – we rock it out! Forget your troubles, come on, be happy in your healing with us!
