Vision of Holiness

Tuesday, April 7th, 2020

There’s a gift we’ve been given and it is the Holy Spirit’s vision of our holiness, and the holiness of all life. To see with his vision there’s only one requirement and it’s that we’re willing to see ONLY with this vision.

This means we must give up all of our attachments to see the world that we have made up. In other words, must relinquish our attachments, our mental and emotional attachments, to our opinions and judgments about the world and everything in it, and everything that’s not in the world too.

It’s a tall order, but it’s worth it and our willingness is all that’s required.

In this time of coronavirus, we can hold in our mind that something extraordinary, something magnificent, something truly inspiring is unfolding even though it may not FEEL like it.

If we’re willing to see it the vision of holiness will be given to us.

This is Easter week, it’s Holy Week. What better time to cultivate a vision of holiness? There is none. Now is the appointed and perfect time.

Let us ask to see our true reality with the Holy Spirit’s vision.

“The song of Easter is the glad refrain the Son of God was never crucified. Let us lift up our eyes together, not in fear but faith. And there will be no fear in us, for in our vision will be no illusions; only a pathway to the open door of Heaven, the home we share in quietness and where we live in gentleness and peace, as one together.” A Course in Miracles, T-20.II.8.

We cannot place our faith in Spirit while simultaneously holding onto a grievance or a grudge.

It’s time for us to really understand this basic fact.
Let us place onto the altar of God’s Love for us all grievances and grudges. There’s no greater gift we could give to Jesus this Easter, than to be willing to relinquish all of our grievances and grudges to him for healing. Let’s do it! Let’s be that generous! Let’s be that willing!

Let’s leave them on the altar and offer them up PERMANENTLY, never take them back and simply be grateful.

To be peace-full, to live a vision of holiness, to be happy, we must be willing to relinquish all grievances.

Today’s the perfect day to double down and deepen our commitment to relinquish all attack thoughts and live in Freedom. We’re cultivating a vision of holiness that raises us up and liberates our brothers and sisters too!

Undoing Worry

Monday, April 6th, 2020

Many people are feeling anxious and worried right now. It’s understandable, AND it’s avoidable. Truly it is.

I feel it’s so valuable to cultivate the peaceful mind. It’s worth the effort it takes. Being worried is exhausting.

We can undo the worry if we’re willing to focus on our spiritual practice.

I’ve been connecting with a number of folks who are concerned about their family members and the choices their loved ones are making right now. People see their loved ones making choices that seem to place their life in danger. That can be super scary. It can trigger a worried mind.

What adds to that intensity is judging our loved ones too.

When our mind goes to what they’re doing “wrong” we start to feel upset.

And we also feel guilty (even if we don’t realize it) because we know that it’s not helpful to judge anyone.

And then we blame them for making us feel upset.

And then we feel more guilty (even if we don’t realize it), because it’s not their fault we’re upset.

And so the patterns go on and on – unless we interrupt them.

This is why I’m such a big proponent of realizing the upset is a warning signal, an alarm bell that lets us know that we’re making unloving choices and thinking unloving thoughts and we can change our mind, go the other way, if we choose.

Every day presents opportunities for us to have a healing. It’s extraordinary what a difference it makes when we commit to no longer justifying the upset and instead we decide to extend Love to everyone.

When we accept responsibility for our thoughts and feelings, we can actually realize there’s power in that.

Let’s diminish the worry and anxiety by extending Love, choosing again and doing the U-turn so that we can go the other way and choose compassion.

I’ve learned that keeping myself peaceful is super important AND it’s within my control. It does require a great willingness and a discipline, but it’s SO worth it.

Let’s not add to the worry in the world, let’s undo it.

Today’s the day to practice!

Cultivating Peace

Sunday, April 5th, 2020

I’m a very sound sleeper. I fall asleep so easily. I’m very blessed that way and I’m so grateful. For the last week I’ve noticed that I’m not falling asleep as easily or sleeping as soundly.

I can tell that even though I feel at Peace, the majority of people don’t, and, being an empath, I can feel what others are going through. I know many people in New York, some I’m talking with each day, and things are very intense there. I know others who are very worried about family members.

I saw that Maggie Haberman, longtime NY Times White House reporter, who apparently lives in Brooklyn said that the sirens were non-stop in Brooklyn. I can only imagine how intense that would be and I’d rather not.

I saw in the paper where EMT (emergency medical transportation) workers were overwhelmed and afraid.

When we trust more in our own abilities than we do in Spirit, then we’re always insecure and off-balance.

The only way to truly be at Peace is to place our full faith and trust in Spirit.

In each and every moment, we are placing our trust and faith somewhere in something. If we’re not placing it in Spirit, where are we placing it? This is one of the most basic aspects of our spiritual practice. This is why TRUST is the #1 characteristic of God’s Teachers.

It’s times like this that are calling us to place our trust and faith in Spirit.

The stress of trying to rely upon our own resources, and our own abilities is intense!

The pain of separation thinking is pushing us.
The vision of our holiness is pulling us.

Let us be more pulled by the vision than pushed by the pain.

This is Easter week, and Passover week too. This is the time for us to remember to Partner UP with our Higher Holy Spirit Self.

While so many of our brothers and sisters are essential workers to support the rest of us. And so many are risking their lives and going through a nightmare scenario in hospitals all over this world, let us hold down the spiritual fort for them and PRAY.

Let’s stand strong in our faith and KNOW that EVERYTHING works together for our good. Now, more than ever, for some of us, the pain is pushing us to hold the vision and not make any compromises.

One of the things I love about the A Course in Miracles Manual for Teachers is Chapter 4’s Characteristics of God’s Teachers. Trust is #1, and #2 is honesty, which Jesus says means consistency.

He tells us, “Conflict is the inevitable result of self-deception, and self-deception is dishonesty.”

I find this so helpful. We do deceive ourselves, and frequently. We play these mind-games that keep us going around in circles. Now is the time for honesty.

Hear what ACIM is telling us: Honesty is the way OUT of conflict.

Trust is the way to Peace.

Consider this, if you’re in a relationship with someone who is deceptive, can you ever rest, relax and feel secure with them? No, of course not. So, the same thing applies to our relationship with our self. Let’s be honest with ourselves. Let’s cultivate an honest relationship with our own self.

Can we actually be heart-centered and open-hearted and be self-deceiving? It seems impossible to me.

Let’s stop playing games and deceiving ourselves, if only because it’s not loving, and not supportive of our awakening.

More than ever, our consciousness is needed to be a support to people who are freaking out, and people who are exhausted or experiencing intense trauma. We can be available to support them. Let’s be honest with ourselves and others and let’s be intent on learning to rely upon Spirit rather than our own abilities and devices.

In that same section on Honesty in the Manual for Teachers on Honesty, Jesus says, “There is no challenge to a teacher of God. Challenge implies doubt, and the trust on which God’s teachers rest secure makes doubt impossible. Therefore they can only succeed.”
Let’s recognize that we can only succeed if we’re willing to consistently trust Spirit. Isn’t that a great thing to PROVE?

Let’s PROVE Spirit works in our life.
Let’s live without inner conflict.
Let’s be truly helpful.

If this is a struggle for you, consider getting support.

An option to help alleviate fear is to work with one of our spiritual counselors. When folks are in my certification program, they must do 111 sessions as part of their requirements and you can help them by booking a session now. All sessions with a counselor-in-training are offered on a donation basis. Click here to learn more now. You’ll have options to book with a certified counselor or one in training.

Now more than ever it’s important to hold to our spiritual practices. And prayer is our POWER TOOL.

To be helpful is why every day I write inspiration and record a prayer to go with it. You can join me in cultivating the willingness that raises us ALL up so we can be truly helpful in this world. Please share my daily prayer with anyone who would find it helpful.

Let’s pray on behalf of all the people who’ve lost their jobs and have a family to feed.

Let’s also remember all of the olympic athletes around the world who’ve worked SO HARD to qualify and now have to wait one more year. That’s intense too.

Think of all the weddings that are being postponed.
And the babies being born who won’t get to be held by their grandparents for a while.
Consider the folks who are unable to quarantine in detention camps.

Some people are complaining they’re bored.
Let’s see if we can help them find a way to be truly helpful for others.
There are people all over the world who would be thrilled to trade places.

If you’d like extra support, you can subscribe to “My Daily Shot of Spiritual Espresso” if you haven’t already.

You can also get the podcast of my daily prayers
and/or find them at YouTube.
There are more than 400 episodes of my radio show on podcast. And some people listen to me as they fall asleep. I don’t take it personally when folks tell me I put them to sleep. I’m glad my voice can be soothing. You can subscribe to my podcast and have that as a resource.
You can subscribe to that, too.
All of this is free.

THIS EASTER SUNDAY I’m participating in an online service with Jon Mundy, David Fishman, Bill Free, Lisa Natoli and others. You can join us by registering here: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/vJMpdO2opj8rrCm_R6rjNKu_wPoRGp8OyA

I look forward to our gathering. It means so much that we can join together and love on each other!

May you and your family feel blessed.

Sanity In Times of Insanity

Saturday, April 4th, 2020

Another day “living la vida loca”. Yesterday morning I went to the giant Whole Foods grocery store to shop for myself and my brother’s family. There was a line to get in when I got there at 8:30 a.m., mostly because a number of cashiers had called in sick and they didn’t want the lines to pay to get long, so they weren’t letting that many people into the store, even though it is a HUGE store.

When I got to the front of the line, I told the security guard that because I was wearing the face mask she couldn’t see that I was smiling at her. But she said she could tell by my eyes. She was wearing a mask, too, and I could tell she was smiling, also. It was a sweet moment. My mask is actually a head covering that I’m now using as a mask, because it’s the closest thing I have to a mask.

When I got to the cashier to check-out and pay for my groceries, I had such a deep sense of gratitude for her and all the others working in the store. I thanked the woman and said, “Thank you for being here so I could buy food for my family.” And I started to cry. I am so deeply touched and grateful for all the people who are making personal sacrifices so that some of us can have the basics, even if the basics include things like potato chips and yogurt.

I understand that some people are bored staying at home.
Some people are inconvenienced and annoyed by the quarantine.
Others aren’t abiding by it all.
Others think that wearing masks are stupid and unnecessary.

I’ve heard it all.

What I feel is immense gratitude.
I feel safe and protected.

I feel grateful that my family is safe and so are most of my friends.

I am SO grateful for the people who are working so hard to keep the rest of us alive and safe.

I am so aware that many are intensely challenged right now, and I’m praying more than ever that people can find Peace in the midst of this experience.

I know there are many thousands of people who are going through a very difficult time, so we need to extend them Love and compassion and do all that we can for them.

This is a time for all of us to pitch in.

I’ve got friends who’ve had their businesses shut down.
Friends who can’t work because they’re home sick.

They’re homeschooling their kids, so they can’t pick up extra work because they have to be home with their children. So, I’m sending them care packages of food and toys for the children to play with.

What can you do for folks to help them out in their time of need?

Have you got a sewing machine? Maybe you could make masks or you could pay for a seamstress in your town to do it.

It’s not about protecting yourself so much as protecting others. I’ve already had friends who were infected, but asymptomatic and didn’t know it, walking around infecting loved ones. We really do need to all behave as if we’re infected and asymptomatic, at least when we’re outside our home.

One funny note. When I was at the grocery store shopping, I was looking at my list and my brother’s list on my phone but my facial recognition software on my iPhone wouldn’t recognize me with the mask on, so I kept having to put in my password. I had to laugh about it!

Good News

Thursday, March 26th, 2020

There is encouraging news mixed in with the tragic news. I’ll share the best news I’ve personally heard in a very long time. My friend Chris, who was taken to the emergency room two weeks ago with what they thought was a bad flu and who was diagnosed with pneumonia, and then later Covid-19, came home from the hospital after 14 days in quarantine. His husband and children are so HAPPY, as am I.

If you’re a person who prays, pray to know that all is well everywhere in this world. If you’re not a prayerful person, just bless everyone. That’s so beneficial to all!

Bless and bless again!

Sometimes, we might hesitate to bless someone we don’t like or feel should be punished. But if we think about it, when we bless those who seem to be generating hardship in our life, we’re helping them to have more clear insight about truth and Love and compassion and things that are helpful to all.

Bottom line: when we bless anyone, we bless everyone because all are connected.

This is so important to remember.

When we bless others, ESPECIALLY those who “despitefully use us” we are helping to undo the belief in separation. When we bless others, we bless ourselves because we’re One with them.

It’s never worth holding a grudge. Not for a single moment. The benefits of extending blessings and compassion are beyond our comprehension, and their are no benefits to holding a grudge.

When we can bless everyone we’re generating good news in our life every day. It will surely bring an increase of good news everywhere.

Let’s BE the blessing and share the blessing. It’s what we’re here for!

Compassion Practice

Wednesday, March 25th, 2020

Today I drove over to the park to go for a long walk on a sunny day that was wonderful. Unfortunately, when I got back to my car my battery was dead. I just haven’t used my car enough while being quarantined at home (not sick, just being responsible) and so I had to call AAA and they came and jumped me. Life. I have compassion for myself for not realizing that I need to drive my car more. I have an old car with an old battery.

I had a nice little chat with the AAA fellow, and I’m grateful for any opportunity I can have to share a little kindness and connection with people. It’s such an intense time that we really can think of these exchanges as an opportunity to make the world a better place and spread some Love.

Let’s not take these exchanges lightly. They’re significant.

You never know when you might be talking with someone who is really terrified and going through something intense. Your kindness might really make a difference in their life. You’ll be so glad you made the most of that opportunity.

I did get to see some beautiful signs of Spring, including a surprisingly large turtle!





I’m so glad I can all still go for walks and practice social distancing.

One of the main things this virus is going to teach is that we need to practice kindness and responsibility – this will keep our vibration up and help us to heal our minds.

We’re all in a fast-track mind healing right now.
None of us can afford to lower our vibration.

Compassion is deeply healing and it can help us to transcend many things.

Practice, practice, practice.

I’ve learned to look at any place in my mind where I’ve been resistant to practicing compassion because I didn’t like something someone said or did.

Now I need to be more committed to my practice than ever, and I’m glad I can be. I’m so glad.

We can practice together and have tremendous healing. Yay, God!

Transforming Terror to Peace

Tuesday, March 24th, 2020

Right now in the world, Covid-19, the Coronavirus, is raging in many places around the world. Countries are locking down. In some places, it’s illegal for people to be on the street with certain exceptions. There are all kinds of new rules and regulations coming into place. Some are to protect the populace and some are questionable invasions of citizen’s rights. Each country is different.

Some people are respecting the rules and warnings and some people are not.

We all have different ideas of what safety feels like, and we all have different trigger points of fear. As the U2 song says, “We’re one, but we’re not the same.” We’re not the same in our opinions and perceptions.

And so, we must respect these differences and have compassion for them.

As Thich Nhat Hanh, one of my teachers, has said, “Blaming never helps.”

A global pandemic is terrifying to a majority of people and we can respect how people feel while not giving in to the terror itself.

Terror, fear, comes from a perspective of wanting to control things that are not controllable.

Fear cannot arise unless attack is justified, and if it had a real foundation pardon would have none. The real world is achieved when you perceive the basis of forgiveness is quite real and fully justified.A Course in Miracles T-30.VI.3.

There will be more temptations to attack, to dispute, to make wrong than normal in this current climate of insecurity. Let’s not be tricked into believing our attack thoughts are correct. Let’s remember that “fear cannot arise unless attack is justified.” Anger and attack are so closely related, and neither is ever justifiable.

We can practice having an awareness of when we’re looking to justify our attack and our anger and lay those thoughts and beliefs on the altar. We invite the Higher Holy Spirit Self in to heal your mind about it. We will have healing as soon as we’re more willing than unwilling.

As soon as we’re more willing to let our belief go than we are willing to be righteous and right about it, the healing has happened.

Let’s go for that. More willingness.

Let’s focus on being willing to be HAPPY.

Right now, people are frightened and people are dying and people are grieving. Let’s not be petty about our grievances. I’d rather be kind to everyone now and be grateful they’re alive to annoy me.

I have a good friend who is in the hospital with this virus for 10 days now. No one can go and visit him. Lots of people are having their loved ones die in the hospital and they cannot be with them. So, if you’re finding yourself losing your patience with your loved ones, be EXTREMELY GRATEFUL they are there with you now. Raise yourself up by reaching for the Higher Holy Spirit Self. Don’t allow your vibration to fall down.

We’ll get through this and we have to do it together. LOVE is our healer. Not medicine, not food, not ventilators. LOVE.

How willing are you to practice radical patience right now? Please share in the comments below.

Sheltering in Peace

Saturday, March 21st, 2020

I returned to New Jersey from Los Angeles this past Monday and I’ve been sheltering in place ever since. Even though my family is just a few miles away, I haven’t been to see them and I won’t go to see them because I don’t have a way to be tested for Covid-19. It’s entirely possible that I’ve been exposed while traveling, and it could possibly incubate for weeks without me having a clue. I’d rather be safe.

As an A Course in Miracles student, I know this: my script has already been written. Your script has already been written. All the possibilities for our lives are written into our script the way that all the possibilities are written into a video game script. We cannot change that script, but it’s vast. As with a video game, no one knows how we’ll play it.

In each and every moment we have the opportunity to choose Love.

The more we choose loving thoughts and actions, the more we open up the higher, more loving and harmonious aspects of our script AND the more we open up to new and sometimes intense challenges to help us increase and awaken our awareness even more.

The more we choose fearful thoughts and choices, the more we open up opportunities to learn through pain and suffering.

We can choose to learn through pain or Joy.

It’s our free-will choice.
We get to decide.

Mostly I choose to learn through Joy, but not always. I’m more consistent and I’m grateful for that.

I am choosing not to be afraid, and I’m also choosing to be responsible and not reckless. The protocols are quickly changing in this world, at least for now, and I am staying home, isolated in the physical realm by myself, but I have so many people I’m interacting with on Zoom and on the phone that I am feeling very connected with people. I’m actually talking with friends more often right now because it’s more important right now. What are you doing more of right now, besides praying?

I know that people are feeling worried and afraid, and so I’m working on things we can do to support people where they are.

I don’t feel worried and afraid, because I absolutely know that if I were to get sick that it would be in my script and it would be for my highest and best.

Being sick would present a series of forgiveness lessons that would be greatly beneficial, even if I didn’t like them.

I’m truly interested in the maximum growth opportunity, even though I must confess I don’t always choose it. Sometimes I shrink back and choose to avoid. Some days I feel stronger than others. Some days I have more dedication than others.

What I’m grateful to see is that every day I’m making more and more loving choices and that I am constantly feeling more free of ego thoughts, control, and manipulation. I rarely get bothered or upset, and when I do it’s usually quite fleeting.

If you feel something coming toward you in your script that you don’t like, make a change in your thinking. Call upon the Higher Holy Spirit Self and rise UP in your awareness by making as many loving choices as you possibly can. Don’t let it just come toward you and run you over – Partner UP and get help. Our mind is the Mind of God – we aren’t victims!

I’m looking at how we can offer my Finding Freedom From Fear Boot Camp sometime soon for those who are feeling really challenged by fear right now. If you’re feeling afraid, consider listening to my free podcast, A Course in Miracles. Consider subscribing, and you can search for topics that will support you at this time. There’s about 440 episodes, plenty of choices!

You can also subscribe to the Podcast of my Prayer for Today and you’ll have hundred of prayers to choose from – one for every occasion. Prayer works.

People tell me often that they fall asleep listening to me, and I’m not offended. I have the intention that my voice is soothing and inspiring, so if it soothes you to sleep that’s a good thing.

I’ve been thinking of making a recording of me whispering positive thoughts that someone could listen to as they fall asleep – would that interest you? I’m looking to be helpful. If that would be helpful, or any other thing you think I could offer, please suggest it in the comments below or email it to me at admin@jenniferhadley.com

Thank you!

Inspired by a Virus

Thursday, March 19th, 2020

Alright, all you poets! Now is a great time to inspire us with your insights! A Capuchin Franciscan Brother Richard Hendrick’s poem “Lockdown” went viral, and this St. Patrick’s Day we can see why.

Brother Richard Hendrick, a Capuchin Franciscan living in Ireland, has penned a touching poem about the Coronavirus.

He shared his poem “Lockdown” in a Facebook post on Friday, March 13.

Lockdown

They say that in Wuhan after so many years of noise
You can hear the birds again.
They say that after just a few weeks of quiet
The sky is no longer thick with fumes
But blue and grey and clear.
They say that in the streets of Assisi
People are singing to each other
across the empty squares,
keeping their windows open
so that those who are alone
may hear the sounds of family around them.
They say that a hotel in the West of Ireland
Is offering free meals and delivery to the housebound.
Today a young woman I know
is busy spreading fliers with her number
through the neighbourhood
So that the elders may have someone to call on.
Today Churches, Synagogues, Mosques and Temples
are preparing to welcome
and shelter the homeless, the sick, the weary
All over the world people are slowing down and reflecting
All over the world people are looking at their neighbours in a new way
All over the world people are waking up to a new reality
To how big we really are.
To how little control we really have.
To what really matters.
To Love.

So we pray and we remember that
Yes there is fear.
But there does not have to be hate.
Yes there is isolation.
But there does not have to be loneliness.
Yes there is panic buying.
But there does not have to be meanness.
Yes there is sickness.
But there does not have to be disease of the soul
Yes there is even death.
But there can always be a rebirth of love.
Wake to the choices you make as to how to live now.
Today, breathe.
Listen, behind the factory noises of your panic
The birds are singing again
The sky is clearing,
Spring is coming,
And we are always encompassed by Love.
Open the windows of your soul
And though you may not be able
to touch across the empty square,
Sing.

We’re standing for a rebirth of Love in our hearts.

We seek not to change the world but to change our minds about it, and to see that God has a plan that includes more Peace, more Love, and more Joy and we’re willing to allow it to be revealed in our hearts so we can share it with the world.

What has inspired you lately? Please share in the comments!

Accepting the Unacceptable

Tuesday, March 17th, 2020

Not being able to accept what’s actually happening can be a very intense experience. When I knew my mother was not going to live much longer, I had to accept it. That was what was happening, and while I didn’t wish for her to leave this world, I couldn’t stop it. I had to accept it.

We all have had experiences where we very resistant to accepting something that felt unacceptable to us.

We rejected it on principle.

There are times when we are intensely challenged because we love someone who doesn’t want to have anything to do with us. Or, perhaps they care for us, but not in “that way” and so we have to accept how they feel.

There are many experiences in life that are intensely challenging to the ego that we can find so difficult to accept.

There’s power in accepting what is.

Even so, we don’t have to like what is. We just have to accept that “it is what it is.”

When we can accept what is without ascribing value to it, without making it wrong or right, bad, or good, then we’re moving into a place of holding things in our mind without judgment, which means we can learn how to see them objectively and correctly.

This is deeply healing.

When I cannot accept something, it becomes like a splinter in my mind, agitating and irritating.

Non-acceptance is like that sore tooth that you can’t stop running your tongue over to see if it still hurts. Acceptance brings relief, but when we don’t like something, we’d rather be in the pain of constantly rejecting it than move into the Peace that acceptance can bring.

Our ego attachment to being SO RIGHT about HOW WRONG something is can actually drain off years of our life spent invested in distress, irritation, resentment, regret, guilt, blame, and shame.

That’s no way to live.

Today on my podcast, I’m going to talk about accepting the unacceptable so that we can take our power back and use our time, attention, and energy more wisely. Let’s invest in something that actually brings us benefits!

I’m so grateful for this spiritual practice of A Course in Miracles! It brings me Peace every day even in the midst of great disturbances! Victory!

Calling All Miracle Workers

Sunday, March 15th, 2020

These interesting times are the ones that we came here for. I know that anyone who is reading this e-mail decided to incarnate at this particular time for the purpose of being able to be a beneficial presence at this time. Let us not shirk our opportunity. Let’s dive into holding the high watch of remembering the truth, despite ALL appearances.

Now is the time for spiritual students to commit to being a TRULY helpful day in and day out. Spirit will guide us in the HOW of it if we’re willing to ALLOW ourselves to be led and guided. Let us step up and be of service to the Light.

The best way that we can be of service is not to be afraid. How do we do that? We don’t judge things, we accept them as they are.

After all, why wouldn’t we when we know that everything works together for good and there are no exceptions? Let us not start making exceptions and finding fault.

Let us choose Love and answer the cries for Love with compassion.

The more we practice, the more helpful we are.

The truly helpful are invulnerable
because they are not protecting their egos
and so nothing can hurt them.

~ A Course in Miracles

Let us be miracle-minded and miracle workers.

A miracle is a service. It is the maximal service you can render to another. It is a way of loving your neighbor as yourself. You recognize your own and your neighbor’s worth simultaneously.” A Course in Miracles, Miracles Principle #18

Look, I know it’s challenging to not make the world real when the intensity of density is amping up, but it’s for this time that we were born. This is the perfect time for us to REALLY go for it. This is the time of our liberation, and we have everything we need within us to accomplish it when we put the Higher Holy Spirit Self in charge.

This is precisely why, every day, I write inspiration and record a prayer to go with it. You can join me in cultivating the willingness that raises us ALL up so we can be truly helpful in this world. Please share my daily prayer with anyone who would find it helpful. The prayers are also available in a podcast.

We shall overcome all forms of resistance to the Light.

We pray for the truth to be revealed in our hearts and in our minds and for love to prevail on Earth as it is in Heaven. We are united!

Choosing Peace

Saturday, March 14th, 2020

I posted on Facebook last weekend that I was hearing the song “Let It Be” playing in my heart, and I am still hearing it.

When I find myself in times of trouble,
Mother Mary comes to me
speaking words of wisdom,
“Let it be.”
And in my hour of darkness,
she is standing right in front of me.
“Let it be, let it be, let it be.”
Whisper words of wisdom,
“Let it be.”

We can let Love be the truth of our being and then forget every other story we made up.

We can be of service in this world.

This is not a message of being passive. It sounds like it is, but it’s not. We can actively let it be.

We can actively be aligned in choosing Peace and serving Spirit.

“The mind that serves spirit is invulnerable.” A Course in Miracles

If you’d like to FEEL invulnerable and actually BE invulnerable in this world, consider serving the Light from the Light of your being.

In other words, serve because there’s nothing you’d rather do, not because you’re looking to get something. It’s already been given.

Moving into that place of invulnerability is worth everything that we can put into it. It’s a way that we can be proactive for God.

We can liberate this way – through choosing to serve humanity and Spirit.

We feel vulnerable because we feel guilty about the past, and we can change our minds about it.

Whenever we actively choose to be of service we’re going to feel more aligned and better about ourselves. That’s worthwhile and that’s being of service to all of humanity!

World View

Friday, March 13th, 2020

The way to recognize that you’re not seeing things correctly is to notice when you are upset. When we’re upset, it’s a healing opportunity. The upset is what I call our “Divine Alarm Clock” to let us know that we’ve got a skewed view. The skew of the view is why we’re upset. It’s never for the reason we think.

When our view is skewed, we can claim our healing opportunity gratefully and allow the healing and move on with grace and gratitude.

Now, that’s an option I like!

What I don’t like is feeling like it’s my job to be the police of the world.

When I first started to share more about A Course in Miracles around the world, I felt a number of people coming at me with their attacks. They wanted to prove I didn’t know what I was sharing about. They wanted to be right.

I was surprised at how many attacking and unloving comments I received. I realized that not everyone who studies ACIM aspires to really live the teachings and to be at Peace. And yet, the study of the Course will bring Peace, ultimately. Our willingness is ALL that’s required.

At first, when people were attacking me I thought it was pretty crazy, and it was. I prayed for those who were feeling compelled to attack.

My purpose was to facilitate a healing, and prayer is the medium of miracles.

I feel my prayers were answered because situations were transformed. To change the world, we work at the level of the mind that is in our heart.

In times when the intensity of density is immense, it’s time for us to rise to our calling and see things correctly.

All things work together for good. There are no exceptions except in the ego’s judgment.A Course in Miracles

Let’s not make any exceptions. Let’s choose to have a healing and use that upset to increase our awareness. It really works.

When we’re upset, there’s another way to see the world and we can find it. To see the better way, we must be willing to see beyond our projections. This is a skill we can cultivate. It’s what I’m training myself to do and showing others how to do.

A change of view is an inside job and it’s a great job to have!

Will you live in Peace? Or will you repeat the past?

Perception & Projection

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020

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

This is SO helpful to really understand.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That’s crazy.
It’s crazy-making.

Hence the upset.

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

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

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

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

The Game Changer

Monday, February 17th, 2020

We have extraordinary inner resources. I have watched the documentary “The Game Changers” twice now. One of the people in the movie is a fellow who is “the strongest man in the world.” He’s earned that title because of his ability to carry a very heavy weight a certain distance. He cultivated this ability, because when he was a child something happened to his loved ones and he felt he wanted to be able to lift a car in order to be able to save someone if he had to. He not only cultivated the ability to do that, he’s done it. Flipping a car is not so hard for him. Amazing and extraordinary things can happen in our lives, and we have inner resources to surmount the challenge.

Sometimes it’s hard to understand what A Course in Miracles means when it tells us in Lesson 135 that everything has been GENTLY planned by One Whose only purpose is our good. How could being attacked by a mountain lion while innocently out for a run and having a battle to the death be gently planned for someone’s good? That seems incredible. Meaning, it seems impossible to believe.

And that’s where faith comes in.

We have to be willing to accept this is the fact of our life. As ACIM also tells us, all things work together for our good, without exception.

To have Peace, we must accept these truths EVEN THOUGH we don’t understand them.

This is the path of opening our mind, to be ABLE to know the truth that liberates from thinking we can’t understand.

Understanding is not required for faith.

Faith reveals KNOWING, which is entirely different from understanding and believing.

I put my faith in Love’s protection.

Let’s focus on being willing to know the truth and let the incredible be as it is. Our knowing of precisely why it would be for that man’s good will come to us if we’re willing. I’d rather hold onto that than constantly be chasing some kind of understanding.

This path is not for everyone, but I’m so glad I found it because it is definitely brought me Peace!

Development of trust is just about the #1 thing that people join my classes for. If you’re ready to really open yourself to a relationship with Spirit, consider joining us. Being able to feel connected to Spirit, to place your faith in Spirit, it is a true game-changer. Peace is the result!

Hope as an Obstacle

Thursday, January 23rd, 2020

Have you ever thought about the difference between faith and hope? It’s really worth considering. If you’re going on a trip and you tell me about it before you leave, which of these two statements would you rather hear me say:

“I trust you’ll have a safe journey.”

“I hope you have a safe journey.”

For sure, I’d rather hear someone say they “trust” I’ll have a safe journey. When we’re living in faith, we place our trust in the Divine.

Hope is a kind of wish, or possibly even a fantasy.

For some people, hope can be like a drug.

One teacher I’ve learned a lot from is Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh. He is such a beautiful teacher of mindfulness, and his book Peace is Every Step is one of the best books I’ve ever read and studied. I go back to it again and again. In this wonderful book, he has an essay entitled “Hope as an Obstacle” in which he shares:

“Since we cling to our hope in the future, we do not focus our energies and capabilities on the present moment. We use hope to believe something better will happen in the future, that we will arrive at peace, or the Kingdom of God. Hope becomes a kind of obstacle. If you can refrain from hoping you can bring yourself entirely into the present moment and discover the joy that is already there. Enlightenment, peace and joy will not be granted by someone else. The well is within us, and if we dig deeply in the present moment, the water will spring forth.”

I encourage you to look at where in your life you are waiting in hope, in expectation, wishing for something better rather than seeking the Kingdom, which IS within, in the present moment. We cannot enjoy Peace in the future. Peace is now. If we can be satisfied with hoping, then we may never seek the Kingdom.

If we settle for just hoping things improve, we’re not actively involved in improving our life.

Trust and faith are extremely active. They require our mind to engage and make a decision about the future.

Hope is quite passive.

If you have someone on your team who is helping you to bring the deep desires of your heart to fruition, would you rather they hope for a magnificent outcome or would you rather they have trust and faith?

Will you consider giving up hoping and wishing? Will you trade them for faith and trust?

I can tell you that the #1 issue people bring to my Masterful Living Course is a desire to develop true trust and faith. It’s the #1 result people have, and that’s what brings all the miracles.

If you’re willing, all else will be added unto you, too!

In my free classes Unblock the Flow of Your Time, Energy & Money, I shared about how POWERFUL trust and faith are for this purpose. If this topic of lack and limitation is one that comes up in your life often, consider getting my free class:

Magical Solutions Don’t Solve the Problem

Tuesday, January 14th, 2020

Part 1: (You Are Here) Magical Solutions Don’t Solve the Problem
Part 2: Letting Go of False Beliefs

One of the most CRUSHING and punishing ego thoughts I used to have is that I had “wasted” my time, my energy, my money or my life.

I talk with a lot of spiritual students, and this thought is SO common.

We attack ourselves with it again and again.

A lot of us, once we begin to REALLY understand that it’s our own “stinking thinking” that’s caused all the problems we’ve got and that we’re not now, nor have we ever been, a victim, that’s when we start to feel super judgmental of ourselves.

When we fall into self-judgment like that, it creates a spiraling down effect that’s intensely painful. It often leads to self-medication, distraction and depression. For some, it can make them want to give up all together.

Now, check this out:

One of the most distracting ego thoughts we have is that we don’t have enough time.

Ego thought is always a thought of lack and limitation,

because ego is ONLY about separation from Source.

EVERY ego thought is of limitation and separation.

Lack and limitation is the only song the ego sings.

So, we find ourselves in this stinkin’ thinkin’ sandwich.

We’re stuck between two STRONG beliefs – on one side, we’ve wasted our gifts and talents (just like the Prodigal Son) AND on the other side, we don’t have enough time, energy, money, and resources to get out of being stuck.

Stuck between these two intense beliefs is where most spiritual students spin around for a VERY long time, feeling confused and discouraged, managing and coping with their self-judgment and feelings of failure.

Yup. I regularly talk with folks who’ve been in that spin cycle for 20 or more years.

And the crazy thing is, many of these magnificent people are actually secretly convinced that it’s all happening because there’s something wrong with them.

They believe they’re in this stuck place of intense confusion because they’re not good enough.

So, then what do they do? (… and BTW, I did it, too, that’s how I know so much about it!)

They start looking for a magical solution rather than a miraculous one. Many of us go down that road. We look outside ourselves for the answer.

What’s the difference between magic and miracle?

Magic is when you think the solution is in the world –

Example: I’m thinking I can heal my financial issues with more money instead of opening to the flow of Abundance and Prosperity.

When that’s my thinking, I’m convinced my problem is IN the world, and so the solution is IN the world.

But haven’t we all experienced (again and again and AGAIN) getting more money, only to have it slip through our fingers because our consciousness isn’t abundant and prosperous?

We all have our versions of this experience. It doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with us – it just means we’re still thinking with the ego mindset of lack and limitation.

I’ve seen folks who’d been studying ACIM and New Thought teachings for many years but never REALLY applying the teachings – even after decades – and they don’t even know it. It’s common.

If they believed it, they would live the teachings, and apply them to everything.

I’ve known spiritual teachers who’ve been teaching for years who don’t actually LIVE what they teach and are still looking for a magical solution to their “problems.”

They don’t know that they’re deluding themselves because their focus is on collecting more information. Collecting information makes them feel smarter and better. Being a spiritual know-it-all is like a big showy, glow-in-the-dark band-aid on their belief that they don’t have what it takes.

But collecting information isn’t healing – it’s just a big distraction.

They “know” these teachings backwards and forwards and can “quote scripture” but there’s still a great sense of disconnect and lack. And many times they can’t admit it, because their ego is so identified with being the perfect spiritual student.

It’s kind of like this:

Someone feels sick, overweight, tired and physically unfit, and so they’re reading lots of books, listening to CD’s, watching videos, and talking with lots of people about how to get in shape and restore their well-being and vitality. They study for years, but they just don’t feel any better.

Hmmmm. Why isn’t it working? They know everything there is to know about so many different fitness programs, but their health hasn’t improved after decades of study. The thing they don’t understand is that information isn’t healing.

Just like I did, these spiritual students keep their focus on trying to find some magical key, some kind of teaching that they can learn, some kind of code that breaks through the mystery – but the REAL key is hiding right there in front of them and they don’t even see it.

Have you heard the stories about when the Europeans first showed up on the shores of the Americas in their tall ships and the indigenous people couldn’t see them because they didn’t recognize them?

They didn’t recognize them because they had no concept of them. Because they had no concept of ships like the Europeans had, they couldn’t even see them.

And that’s what happens to us. We don’t have a concept of ourselves as healed, perfect, already whole and complete. It’s just an intellectual idea that we repeat without really knowing.

The keys to spiritual awakening are right there in front of us, but we’re looking beyond them for something with more razzle dazzle. We can’t quite conceive of the healing that’s possible for us, no matter where we are in our journey.

So, instead, we’re looking for some kind of magical solution that someone is going to GIVE us, rather than SHOW us.

It really boils down to feeling worthy and willing.

And, quite frankly, having a REAL desire to know the Truth that sets us free IS required. The desire is the fire that melts away the blocks to our miraculous healing and breakthrough.

With a little bit of sincere willingness, we can start to see what has been right in front of us all along – which is REALLY exciting – in fact, there’s nothing more exciting! It’s thrilling to discover that, like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, we have had the key all along. And that’s what I love SO MUCH.

I love being able to join with other spiritual students who have that little bit of willingness.

Together we can stop looking for the solution in the world.

The answer becomes within reach – the mystery starts to be less mysterious.

And finally, the healing truly begins to happen at the mind and we can see the ship in the harbor and we can sail it home!

It’s extraordinary, and even mind-blowing, how fast we can break down the blocks that we have clung to for many decades.

Spirit doesn’t fail – It doesn’t know how to fail.

When we know HOW to live a miraculous life, then our heart’s desire is not only possible, it’s within reach!

This is Part 1 of a 3 Part series. In Part 2 tomorrow, I’ll share how I moved out of thinking the key was outside me to finding the key to the Kingdom within. It’s this discovery that profoundly changed my life – when I became willing to live a truly miraculous life.

Lean on Spirit

Monday, January 13th, 2020

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

With having done nearly 430 episodes of my radio show, I’m still amazed at how inspired I am by A Course in Miracles. I never tire of the truth. It’s so liberating. I love that every time I pick up A Course in Miracles, I find a treasure that is so familiar and another one that is less well known to me. It is the gift that keeps on giving.

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

There have been many times when I have wept with gratitude just because I held the book in my hand.

The simplest statements carry so much power and Peace.

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

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

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

Such practical advice!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What do you love about ACIM? Please share in the comments below!

Negative Feelings Can Be Helpful

Sunday, January 12th, 2020

I’ve spent a major portion of my life trying to figure out my own feelings and those of others. At times I’ve felt desperately confused and discouraged.

Trying to figure out my feelings and deal with them, as well as other people’s feelings has been a major investment of my time, energy and life-force. It is for many of us. I’m so glad that the teachings of A Course in Miracles actually work. It’s a much faster path with far less frustration, but it does require a great willingness.

We can have so much healing by noticing our feelings and going the other way.

However, when we work WITH Spirit, Partner UP, and stop trying to go it alone, things improve so rapidly it’s astounding. This is part of effective spiritual practice.

In this kind of training, there are people who are sharing their experiences and reminding me of how frustrated I used to feel. I used to feel so hopeless that I could ever effect a change. Now, my whole life has changed. Spirit did that.

For so long I thought that I didn’t have time for spiritual practice, now, I know that spiritual practice saves time. It saves, time and money.

So many people in my Masterful Living class have told me they have both saved a lot of money because they avoided surgery, they were able to give up expensive medications and anti-depressants. And many have been astounded at how their income increased.

I feel it’s so important to talk about what is REALLY possible because most people simply don’t believe, or won’t believe that an effective spiritual practice saves time, energy and money, but it does.

When we do the healing work, all heaven breaks out.
When we put Spirit in charge, and stop going it alone, that’s when we have the most tangible results.

I used to get triggered by something and then feel emotionally dragged down an old familiar rabbit hole that I hated. It happened so many times and so often that it became an affirmation that there was something terribly wrong with me and that I had no ability to control my life or my feelings or even what I said and did.

I’d “lose it.”

As children, when we lose self-control, the adults are supposed to be able to help us and teach us how to find “it” again – “it” being our center, our right mind. But many times they don’t. They’re not present enough in their right mind and instead of helping us find our way back to the center they simply make us wrong.

I talk with so many people in Masterful Living classes – and it even came up this past week – who were told, as children that their emotions and upsets were wrong. As little precious children so many have been told:

“Children are to be seen and not heard.”
“Stop crying or I’ll give you something to cry about.”

Parents are overwhelmed. It’s completely understandable.
Adults who cannot handle their own emotions cannot handle a child who is freaking out.

We get taught that our emotions are wrong.
They’re bad.
They’re unhelpful.
They’re unwanted.

The big messages are:
FEELING IS BAD!
FEELING WILL GET YOU PUNISHED!
FEELING WILL GET YOU IN TROUBLE!
STOP FEELING … OR ELSE!

How can parents teach what they don’t know?
It’s not fair to expect them to.
And so we must forgive.

When I was a kid, I had long hair as I do now, and I used to want to have my Mom braid my hair and help me to do things with it. She didn’t have that skill. I remember asking her to braid my hair when I was about 15. She tried to get out of it, warning me that she just wasn’t good at it, but I insisted. So, my Mom did as requested and, you know what? She was right. She wasn’t very good at it. That was when I finally got it. Don’t ask her to do something she’s not good at. It’s not a loving thing to do.

I say, don’t go to the hardware store for frozen yogurt because they don’t have it. (Although, I do think it would be a hot seller. Mostly guys who are working hard go to the hardware store and they often like a snack.)

We must forgive our parents for not being able to help us with the things they don’t know about. WE are the generation that is turning the tide. We must forgive ALL so that we can get on with the business of teaching only Love. There’s no more productive way.

One of the things that we’ve found so helpful in Masterful Living is to learn to feel our feelings. It takes real effort for most of us to allow ourselves to actually pause in the midst of things and feel what’s going on.

Our feelings indicate our thought patterns. Thoughts come before feelings. It may not seem like it, but our thoughts reflect our belief systems and that’s what will determine how we interpret our life and what we think.

Someone can tell me I’m an idiot, but it won’t bother me if I don’t believe it. I won’t even remember that it happened if there’s no hook of belief. These false beliefs can be healed if we will allow it.

I’ve carried feelings of shame about something I said or did for decades that no one else remembers.

I remember when I was about 27 years old, I went to a friend’s home and they had just had made slipcovers for their couch. My friend had made them himself. I was a smoker then and I accidentally dropped my cigarette on their sofa and burned a hole right through their brand new sofa. I felt so bad and ashamed for that. 20 years later I brought it up to them and they had no memory of it at all. 20 years of feeling bad and ashamed. All of my own making.

Feelings are so helpful to us, but on our own, they’re overwhelming.

That’s why I feel so compelled to support people in bringing these healing opportunities into our lives and making it easy, attractive, appealing and even fun to move through things fully and completely so we can free up all that stuck energy. That’s what Masterful Living is for.

It takes motivation to make a change. For me, my motivation was misery and pain. I worked with that until I caught a spark of inspiration and began to see that I could really make a difference in my own life, and in the lives of my family and others.

One of my goals is to inspire people to do this inner healing work so they can do it more joyfully.

The purpose statement at the Power of Love Ministry is:

Our one goal is to support people who are actively interested in walking their talk, living the Love and awakening so they can teach only Love and be truly helpful. We’re doing it together!

This year we’ve taken steps further along the path of offering more classes with more teachers and training Teachers, Ministers, Prayer Practitioners and Spiritual Counselors and they are blooming and blossoming into POWERFUL light workers with SO MUCH to offer and share.

This has always been a teaching ministry – to teach only Love and how to really live that. We are sharing what we’re learning and it’s spreading. Each year we’re offering new classes by new teachers, and we’re certifying more and more spiritual counselors and helping them have a successful business.

What I’ve come to see is that there are so many beautiful light workers who have felt hesitant because they don’t feel fully qualified and they don’t feel fully capable and empowered to do the work they feel called to do.

Of course they feel hesitant if they still are holding onto shame, blame, resentment, regret, guilt, hurt and jealousy from the past.

I get it. For so many years I had a dream of being truly helpful, but I didn’t feel qualified or capable to really GO FOR IT. I didn’t feel worthy.

Now, I know why.
The unforgivness gets in the way.
How can we feel worthy of being the Light of the world when we’re harboring all this darkness?

Our spiritual practice and the work that we’re doing in Masterful Living (which is the foundation for all the trainings) dissolves and resolves that sense of unworthiness so that people feel capable and qualified to share what they’re learning.

My prayer is that the expansion we’re planning for 2020 will be everything that Spirit intends for it to be and that many, many more thousands of people will be inspired to truly live and practice the teachings of truth in A Course in Miracles.

My prayer is that my own awakening and our collective awakening is brought forth with more ease and grace. That we give up the resistance to Love and to being loving and choose to demonstrate our true nature, which is perfect Love.

Together, we awaken one choice at a time.
Real people.
Real miracles.
Proving that God works in our lives and we are not alone.

It’s all about Self-forgiveness. When we forgive ourselves we can let the past go and put all of our energy into expressing our true nature which is perfect Love.

And then we can truly help all of our brothers and sisters and most especially the children! By demonstrating and teaching only Love, all around us are inspired and uplifted to do things differently. This is why we so much family healing for those in Masterful Living classes.

We can each be a powerful beacon of Love and Light – this is what our calling is.
Everything is pre-installed.
We already have the kingdom within.

Being masterful with our emotions and relationships is just one of the important and valuable things we practice in my yearlong Masterful Living Course. We actively practice healing the sense of separation that keeps us disconnected from Spirit. We cultivate the relationship with Spirit. We transform the most painful parts of our life.

Real people having real miracles.

Finding A Better Way

Saturday, January 11th, 2020

I used to be so tough on the outside and so vulnerable on the inside. My deep sense of vulnerability made me very defensive. I also would get out in front of any perceived attack by being the attacker. I was on high alert ALL of the time, and it was exhausting!

In my life experience, one of the most common things I see is that people get hurt and offended, and then they feel justified in attacking back. AND the really intense part of that whole painful mess is that it happens so fast that we don’t even really know what’s going on.

If we’d like to get to the bottom of it and turn the ship around, we have to have a great willingness to let the upset go in favor of Peace. Most people don’t have enough motivation. For me, Self-Love became my great motivation. I actively choose to Love myself, and so not being at Peace is not worth it. It’s an attack upon my very Self.

When I look deeply into things, there can be a great heart opening and a change.

Example: I FINALLY learned how to handle the times when I feel threatened with spiritual maturity. Now, if I have a moment with a loved one and I feel the old impulse to defend or attack, I can make a new choice.

I’ve learned when the thing to do at that moment is to withdraw and just let it all be.

I can give it up to Spirit to teach me about the meaning of it and the value of whatever’s going on.

I know that everything works together for good and there are no exceptions. When I take a step back, before too long I can remember that this person says snarky comments to everyone they love and it’s not personal to me. I could really feel that was true, and that felt like healing to me.

Now I can go back to the person with a new attitude. I can return to the scene of the “crime,” so glad and grateful that I hadn’t retaliated or escalated in any way. This leaves the door open to a closer connection and more intimacy in my relationships – which I enjoy greatly.

What I’ve come to see is that my willingness to stay cool, to not be offended, and instead have compassion is also an extension of compassion to my former self who was CONSTANTLY making snarky comments.

Also, I see that my willingness to not be hurt and to go back into the “fray” is an affirmation of my loving acceptance of myself and my loved one, and that brought more Love between us.

I am so grateful I can choose a better way.

It’s a moment-by-moment practice that builds our mastery and keeps our Peace. It’s beautiful!

Being masterful with our emotions and relationships is just one of the important and valuable things we practice in my yearlong Masterful Living Course. We actively practice healing the sense of separation that keeps us disconnected from Spirit. We cultivate the relationship with Spirit. We transform the most painful parts of our life.

Real people having real miracles.

Peace

Wednesday, January 8th, 2020

A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson #34 is “I could see peace instead of this.”

In this lesson, Jesus tells us, “Peace of mind is clearly an internal matter. It must begin with your own thoughts and then extend outward. It is from your peace of mind that a peaceful perception of the world arises.”

Peace begins with us.

It BEGINS in our minds. Or, it seems to dissipate in our minds. We choose.

I find it so helpful to remember that my natural state is Peace.

If I’m not experiencing Peace, it’s because I’m choosing something else.

When the world seems to be acting crazy, that’s the time for us to hold to our sanity.

Many people are seeking Peace by trying to manipulate the world to be more peaceful. It’s not a method that works.

We seek not to change the world, but to change our minds about the world in order to be a beneficial presence in the world.

The way that Peace is brought forth is to change our minds.

To discipline our mind. This takes real time and attention, and it absolutely requires that we Partner UP with Spirit to bring it into manifestation.

This is what spiritual practice is all about.

If we don’t deepen our practice when war is threatened, then when will we practice?

If we don’t deepen our practice when our lives are falling apart, then when will we practice?

It’s because we don’t practice that Spirit brings us events and situations that squeeze us so hard that we will finally go to Spirit for the Source of all, or we’ll collapse trying.

We are the deciders of what we will choose.
I choose Peace today and every day.
I ain’t going to study war no more.

Always remember: the ends are in the means.

We cannot get to Peace through war.

ACIM tells us, “You recognize you want the goal. Are you not also willing to accept the means?”

To have Peace, be Peace.

We cannot attack, blame and shame those who aren’t peaceful and remain peaceful. We cannot have Peace while we’re attacking.

Let us BE the Peace from now on.
Let us develop the courage and strength to BE peaceful and share the benefits with the world.

Now is our time to be disciplined in our minds so that we can rise and shine and be truly helpful. There is no better time than NOW!

Living a peaceful life is just one of the important and valuable things we practice in my yearlong Masterful Living Course. We actively practice healing the sense of separation that keeps us disconnected from Spirit. We cultivate the relationship with Spirit. We transform the most painful parts of our life.

Willingness Rather Than Will Power

Sunday, January 5th, 2020

I’m in New Jersey now for the winter, and the days have been gray and rainy. I love the change of seasons and I love winter, but I’m not in love with the gray days. Every season there are usually some days that we wish were different.

As you may know, my family has a home that my parents built on Deer Isle, in Maine. When I was living here in the early ’90s after I’d left New York, we had a cold snap and it was the coldest I’d ever experienced in my life. 20 degrees below zero. For you Celsius fans that’s about -29. Yes, MINUS 29.

I was fortunate, because out there on Deer Isle, being an island surrounded by water, it’s much cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than it is on the mainland. It was probably twice as cold on the mainland.

I was going to a party that night, and I remember how searing the cold was. Of course, I heated the car for 20 minutes before I got into it, but it was still painfully cold. Just going to and from the car, the hairs in my nose froze and crackled. It hurt to have any skin exposed.

Most of the time, living there on the island is heaven. It’s gorgeous. The weather is beautiful most of the time. On a warmer winter night with snows and a full moon, it’s a winter wonderland that takes your breath away.

Before living in Maine, I lived in Manhattan. Apparently, I really love islands, because I also lived on Kauai, in Hawaii. I really love NYC, and most of the time it’s an exciting and interesting place to be. However, when the summer heat comes full on up to 100 degrees – that would be about 37 Celsius – and the humidity is also upper 90’s, then it is positively unbearable. I cannot handle it. It feels like torture.

My BFF, Rev. Karen Russo lives in Scottsdale, AZ, where I was just visiting. As God would have it, I’ve been to visit her in the month of August two years in a row. It’s hot as Hades then. And don’t give me that dry heat stuff, because in August it’s not that dry. Not at all.

I remember going outside for a walk early in the morning, when it’s the coolest, and as we started to walk I was feeling the air outside after being inside the air-conditioned house. I thought, “I wish somebody would open a window out here.” It was just plain stuffy, even outside!

Wherever you live, in most places there are days when it’s just too dang cold or hot, humid or wet or dry, sunny or dark or something. There will always be something.

In every single moment of life, there’s always something to complain about and something to be bothered by, if we let it.

It just depends on what we’re interested in.
That’s what determines our focus.
It’s never what’s happening out there.
It’s always about what’s happening inside.
It’s the eyes we’re looking with that determines what we see.

Healing the painful view is an inside job.

And that’s why, about 20 years ago, I made up my mind to be unalterable. I’m not there yet, but that’s my goal. I get closer every day.

Even on the days that I’m bothered by things, I still feel I succeed because I take that upset and turn it over to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing. Healing is what I’m most interested in. I keep my FOCUS there.

I let the upset unwind with the Love and compassion of my own heart. I made these crazy thought-forms, I gave them life, and it’s time for me to let them go. I intend to be free of ALL of them. I give the Holy Spirit the heavy lifting every day.

The keys to all of my inner healing, which has produced all the wonderful changes in my life, are these three:

*Love
*Self-forgiveness
*Willingness

Since it’s a brand new year, and it still has that lovely new year smell to it, I’m offering something I call my “Challenge to End Self-sabotage” and you can jump in and join us – it’s a gift to the community to inspire and support folks in keeping a healthy, happy new year momentum going.

There’s a big difference between WILLPOWER vs WILLINGNESS.

It has been SO helpful to me to understand the difference and then apply that Wisdom to my life.

When someone has a problem with obsessive-compulsive behavior or avoidance, they’ll often try willpower to make a change. A perfect example of that is trying to get in shape or lose weight at the beginning of the year.

People make new year’s resolutions about what they’d like to change in their eating, drinking, exercising, home cleanliness, and organization, and all kinds of things.

Resolutions require willpower.

Will power is part of a plan of behavior modification.

Behavior modification is a helpful start when we’re feeling out of control, obsessive, compulsive, and addicted.

For the moment, we can pause the addictive behaviors with willpower.
But we all know that stopping the behavior isn’t healing.

As A Course in Miracles teaches us, all healing is at the level of the mind – NOT at the level of behavior.

We seek not to change the behavior, but to change our mind about ourselves, life, our bodies and eliminate the ROOT CAUSE of the behavior – which is our beliefs.

Many people obsessively self-medicate as a way to escape how they feel. I’ve certainly done WAY more than my fair share of that.

Willpower does NOTHING to eliminate that issue – it only intensifies it.

It’s like turning up the heat on a pressure cooker.
Eventually it will explode, and then there’s an even bigger mess to contend with.

A Course in Miracles tells us:
“You must change your mind, not your behavior, and this is a matter of willingness. You do not need guidance except at the mind level. Correction belongs only to the level where change is possible. Change does not mean anything at the symptom level, where it cannot work.” T-2.VI.3.

Willingness is the only way to make real progress on the spiritual path of awakening.

Willpower only deals with symptoms.

Our willingness is ALL that’s required to have true and lasting transformation.

It seems so simple and, quite frankly, too easy. But neither is accurate.

Have you ever had a moment where you felt driven to act compulsively and you knew it would not end well, and that if you could have any small fraction of willingness, you could take a deep breath and make a higher choice but you just didn’t want to – at that moment?

Instead, you willFULLY, self-destructed?

Practicing those moments of willingness IS where our healing’s at.
Willpower simply won’t cut it.

When we’re craving, needing and wanting to satisfy that compulsion, we’re feeling deprived. We’re feeling like a victim that needs and wants and craves because we don’t have, we lack.

The feelings of lack come from the belief in separation. We believe we’re separate from our Creator, and therefore we feel the constant sense of lack.

What is it we don’t have?
At that moment, we don’t have a connection with Spirit that lets us know we’re fully loved and held in perfect Wholeness. That knowing our perfection is missing from our awareness.

How could willpower ever heal that?
How could willpower ever even satiate the craving for Unity for one second?
It cannot.

But even a little bit of willingness is instantaneous joining with Spirit.

“The power to work miracles belongs to you. I will provide the opportunities to do them, but you must be ready and willing.” T-1.III.1.

Using willpower actually makes things worse.
We feel self-betrayed on some level when we’re trying to control and manipulate the cravings and behavior. It just feels hellish.

Okay, maybe there are moments of ego superiority and satisfaction when we’re able to use willpower to not follow the needing, wanting and craving impulses. But those will power moments just fuel the fire of living without lasting healing. Always a victim.

A Course in Miracles tells us:
“We have already attempted to correct the fundamental error that fear can be mastered, and have emphasized that the only real mastery is through love. … You may think this implies that an enormous amount of time is necessary between readiness and mastery, but let me remind you that time and space are under my control.” T-2.VII.7.

Our willingness IS all that’s needed for our healing. Let us practice that this entire year and see what wonderful and miraculous healing we have!

Let’s pray to be willing to forgive ourselves and to remember the truth that sets us free from those gnarly awful patterns of pain. Prayer is so powerful, please join me in my Daily Prayer for Today – today’s prayer is for Willingness to Rise Above. We use technology to transcend time and space and deepen our spiritual practice.

To me, this new year, this new decade, feels like the best ever, even though it’s been a rough start. I’m excited about it!

I’m excited about the healing we’ll have.

Peace on Earth

Saturday, January 4th, 2020

Many people wish for peace of mind or a sense of relief. They’re yearning to feel free – free from everything they don’t like and feel imprisoned by.

Freedom is a spiritual quality that’s part of our Divine Essence. It’s already our nature to experience and express Freedom. We have it at the level of mind, and then it becomes our experience. Even a prisoner of war in a foreign jail can find the Freedom in his mind, because that’s where it’s located.

A Course in Miracles teaches us, “When you are sad, know this need not be. Depression comes from a sense of being deprived of something you want and do not have. Remember that you are deprived of nothing except by your own decisions, and then decide otherwise.” T-4.IV.3.

When someone has a problem with obsessive, compulsive behavior or avoidance they’ll often use willpower to make a change. There’s a sense of loss, and lack and the willpower is used to get control of ourselves.

Willpower is part of a plan of behavior modification that can be a helpful start when we’re feeling out of control, but it doesn’t heal the root cause of the behavior. Willpower only intensifies the deep craving that is the root cause of the problem.

All healing is at the level of the mind – NOT at the level of behavior.

If Love isn’t part of the plan for healing, there won’t be healing, only a shift in behavior. That’s not enough.

If we don’t feel worthy of miraculous permanent healing, we might settle for will power.

For true spiritual healing, we look to the mind for causation.

There’s a false belief at the root cause of every issue. Most problems are an expression of belief in lack. How can willpower heal a belief in lack? It cannot.

The healing we’re looking for comes from opening to giving and receiving the Love that’s restorative and healing.

We resort to willpower when we feel spiritually weak. Willpower is a function of the personality, and is born of a sense of separation and lack. Willingness is the willingness to choose Love and to follow Spirit’s guidance.

Our willingness is ALL that’s required to have true and lasting transformation.

It seems so simple and, quite frankly, too easy. But neither is accurate.

When we’re craving, needing and wanting to satisfy that compulsion, we’re feeling deprived. The real craving is for union with Spirit.

In that moment of craving, we don’t have a connection with Spirit that lets us know we’re fully loved and held in perfect Wholeness, that knowing our perfection is missing from our awareness.

Our willingness to Partner UP will heal the illusion of lack.

Only the willingness to see the union of all life brings lasting healing of splitting the mind.

Even a little bit of willingness is instantaneously joining with Spirit, and that’s where our true and lasting healing is – in remembering our union with God and making that our top priority

Let’s make a real change this year. Let’s get out of the prison in our mind and live joy-fully!

Let there be Peace on Earth and let it begin with us!

Strange Times – Energetic Weather

Friday, January 3rd, 2020

Strange Times – Energetic Weather

This is going to be one of my energetic weather reports that I do from time to time.  There are times when I notice the energy I’m feeling feels different or unusually intense, and this is one of those times.  I like to report about it, because otherwise most people feel as though it’s just them but it’s actually not.

Yesterday in my Sacred Circle we were sharing our experience of recent days. Most of us have had noticeably felt a sense of depression on January 1 and still lingering yesterday.

I shared in Sacred Circle that on New Year’s Eve, I had spent the night at a gong bath led by my friend Manush. In a gong bath, gongs are played for the purpose of healing and it feels like an immersion in the sound.

As you may recall, I’ve been studying and teaching kundalini yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. Yogi Bhajan had stated that 10 consecutive 45-minute gong healings would clear most blocks so that the soul could then heal itself, relieving the body of human suffering to deliver us to our hearts.

Here’s a picture of Manush at the event.

I had only slept about 4 hours that night, as we were awakened at 3:45 a.m. to begin prayers, yoga and chanting. I usually don’t feel much affected by less sleep, but I seemed to on Wednesday. I felt really tired. and I had a lot to do that day as I was leading my New Year Reboot class.

I felt great during class, but definitely not up to snuff the rest of the day and it surprised me because I am SO PUMPED about this new year. And I felt low energy again yesterday even though I was well rested. Strange.

When we discussed it in Sacred Circle, it was clear that most of us were feeling the same thing. I take it as a sign that we’re doing intense healing work all around the planet, the entire human race, and healing is what we’re after.

It helps most of us to know that the sense of temporary depression or feeling of “offness” is shared with others and not something we alone are feeling.

Prayer helps.

Pray for everyone.

Never doubt the power of effective affirmative prayer. When we pray, we raise our vibration. Begin with gratitude, which also raises our vibration. Don’t ever just accept what you don’t like. This is what I was talking about in New Year Reboot. We have so much power, let us use it for good.

May you always feel blessed!

When Things Don’t Make Sense

Friday, December 13th, 2019

Are you having a rough time right now? Many people are. Things don’t always go as planned, but they are always for our good. When times are tough or confusing that’s when A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson #25 is a big help to me.

”I don’t know what anything is for.”

I experience many things that don’t go as I thought, especially when I’m traveling. There are constant shifts and changes in this world. It’s the world of change. And when I’m tempted to say I don’t like something, I can relax my mind and the judgments and say:

I don’t know what anything is for.

Until I can see through all directions of time and space, and understand the causation of all things, how could I possibly know what all things are for? It’s absolute insanity for me to think I could know.

So many things happen that make no sense at all until we have a long view – and even then they may not make sense.

And when confronted with challenging situations and circumstances that are non-sensical, we must turn to faith in Spirit and a willingness to KNOW that we are loved and being cared for, even when it doesn’t feel like it.

When things are not to our liking, the ego-mind can go to the false concept that we’re being punished, but that’s not how God works. We don’t really know what things are for, except they are for our good – ALWAYS and ALL ways. In this, there are no exceptions. A willingness to KNOW this and see this bring the awareness of it.

Let me surrender my confusion and choose Peace instead.

Truth is always liberating. Always and eternally.

I don’t know what anything is for, but I’d like to.
I don’t know what anything is for, and it’s for my highest and best.
I don’t know what anything is for, and I can trust that it’s for my good!

Today I get to practice knowing the truth that sets me free.

Today is a day to relax the mind into accepting what is, and calling it good and very good, whether I like it or not! Today is a day that I can rest in the knowledge that I AM Loved.

If you’d like to shift your whole orientation towards trust and faith in God, as well as in relationships, check out my yearlong Masterful Living Course 2020. We are going to rock this new year!

GOT FORGIVENESS?
