Healing Our Hearts

Sunday, November 22nd, 2020

This week it’s Thanksgiving week in the United States. It’s our biggest family holiday, and normally Wednesday is the biggest travel day of the entire year – but it won’t be this year. I’m in Vermont where there’s very little Covid, but still most of us won’t gather for the holiday.

I am setting the intention to have Thanksgiving again in the springtime when I trust we’ll be out of this Covid crisis.

My birthday is next weekend, and my friends keep asking me what I’m doing to celebrate my birthday. Like a lot of folks, I won’t be doing much of anything on my birthday – perhaps I’ll have a zoom party.

I used to get SO triggered on my birthday. In fact, I’ve ruined MANY a family holiday because I got triggered and got so angry that I just destroyed any possibility of a good time. I’ve even done it when everyone came to my house and I cooked the meal.

I’ve had my best friends in the whole world not wish me a happy birthday and completely forget it was my birthday. I think it happens when you have a birthday on a major holiday like Thanksgiving or Christmas.

I’ve organized things to celebrate my birthday with friends and with family, on different occasions, and everyone bailed on me.

And, I’ve learned to get over it all.
I’ve learned not to take it personally even when it felt SO personal.

I’ve even had my family eat my birthday cake without me – when I was just in the next room, they didn’t bother to call me to join them as they ate my birthday cake. Yes, it’s true.

Because I used to get so triggered, so intensely and so frequently, I came to believe there was no chance for me to have good relationships. It seemed perfectly impossible for me. I felt utterly hopeless.

Because of prayer, I learned that I wasn’t helpless. Prayer works.
I learned to do what I now call PARTNERING UP.
I learned to pray, effectively and with great sincerity and prayers work.

Prayers REALLY work, but you do have to pray effectively and then be willing to accept the answered prayer.

For example, when my precious Mom was so sick and in the last years of her life, I prayed to release all blocks to Love between us so that we could be completely in the flow of Love before she left this world. I was so intent on us having a holy relationship.

Spirit gave me the opportunity to go to Maine to visit my parents many times in the last years of my Mom’s life and to spend more time with her.

On one visit, it was planned that I would go for two weeks to take my Mom to her radiation treatments. The drive alone was a three hour round trip from the island where my parents lived, and the hospital. It took more than four hours to do the whole trip, and it was wintertime, so we often took longer because of snow and ice.

My mother had about a month of treatments, so I took the middle two weeks to spare my father having to do all the driving.

It was a grey, wintery bleak time, but I found stand up comedy and audio books and things that I thought my Mom and I could enjoy together and listen to.

During those two weeks, I had made a commitment to myself that I wasn’t going to judge my mother for anything no matter what. I was going to completely Love and accept her. This was my big opportunity to have healed.

There were times when I’d have to go into the bedroom, shut the door, and get down on my knees to pray to release all judgments.

This is when I learned that Higher Holy Spirit Self really would take the thoughts out of my mind if I was sincerely wishing to let them go. I had so much mental healing at that time.

I prayed and prayed and prayed to give up the need to be right. I prayed to release every trigger and every unhealed resentment and regret.

I didn’t realize it then, but now I know that I punished my Mom for tolerating a lot of my anger and upset. I felt so guilty for being mean to her and saying mean things.

That guilt turned into fear and frustration that I couldn’t find a way out. If she had pushed back, and been able to help me with it more, that would have been great – but that was not my path of learning.

I felt unworthy of ALL Love because of the choices I’d made.
Unworthiness is a core issue for us all.
For many of us, a deep sense of unworthiness is running our lives and ruining our life.
(And that’s why I’m doing a 3 class series on it next month!)

I now see that everything I’ve learned is what I get to share in my classes. Now, I’m turning that pain into healing, because I support others with it step-by-step because I had to learn to rely on Spirit to show me. I had to really focus and pay attention and learn the way out.

I had to give up all blame in order to get out of my pain.
I had to rely up on Spirit and find my way into my loving heart.
I couldn’t do it alone.
Love is the only healer and the only way out.

Failing in my relationships felt so painful to me.
Success seemed so elusive.
I couldn’t bear the pain of failure anymore.
I had to believe that Spirit would lead me.
I had to learn to trust in God rather than my own opinions and perceptions.
I had to. I just couldn’t take it anymore.

In that two weeks of radiation treatments I focused on total acceptance and Love of my mother.

I put everything I had into releasing the judgments and seeing with God’s eyes.

I practiced being the one who went first with Love and I prayed and prayed and prayed.

At the end of the visit, when I was leaving to go back home to Los Angeles, my mother said “this was the nicest visit we ever had.”

We spent 2 weeks of driving half the day back and forth to radiation treatments in the gray, cold winter snow and mess and it was the nicest visit we ever had. Why? Because I focused on eliminating the blocks to Love and just loved without attachment.

VICTORY IS MINE!
I put Spirit in charge and Spirit DID IT.

From that point on, I knew that Spirit COULD NOT fail.

Thinking about it brings tears to my eyes, because I still have a little bit of sadness for all of the opportunities to be loving that I missed.

But I don’t look back except to continue to harvest the wisdom and move forward with more Love and more Love and more Love.

We can all be the fulcrum point of healing in our family.

We can all rely upon the Spirit for our healing.

We can all practice non-judgment.

It requires no longer giving Love and acceptance in order to get anything back. We must give without attachment.

No need for recognition or appreciation.
We give Love because it’s our divine opportunity to be our true self and be truly helpful.

It all gets so much easier to practice when we forgive ourselves for our debts and our trespasses.

I had to forgive myself for all the things I felt guilty about so I was no longer feeling horrible about myself. Self-forgiveness is the only way.

Spirit cannot fail.

That’s why it’s so important to GO FOR IT!

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

TODAY is the very last day to get all the extra-special early bird bonuses with my Masterful Living Course 2021. This is my very best program. If you make the commitment to yourself NOW, you’ll have so much to look forward to – including tremendous healing and transformation!

New Agreements

Saturday, November 21st, 2020

As I write this I’m blessed to be in the midst of offering one of my Spiritual Counseling Training Intensives. It’s such powerful healing when we’re finally willing and ready to recognize that the only limitations we have are the ones that we agree to.

The only grievances we have are the ones that we agree to.

The only way someone can take advantage of us is if we agree to it.

The only way we can feel limited is if we agree to limitations.

When I first began to realize these things it felt like a dead weight on top of me because I didn’t know HOW to release the limiting thoughts.

I was stopped by my belief that it couldn’t be done because I didn’t know how to do it.

I was stopped by my belief that I was on my own, and if I didn’t know how to do it, I had no resources and so I had to accept that it couldn’t be done.

Fortunately, I had that little bit of willingness that Jesus talks about in A Course in Miracles. My little bit of willingness kept me praying. My prayers to have healing were answered, in part, by my realization that I could Partner UP. I realized that limitations are really only in my thinking, not in my true reality.

I decided that it didn’t matter HOW the healing happened, I was calling forth healing and I was accepting it.

I gave the heavy lifting of figuring out the “how” to the Higher Holy Spirit Self. I knew I couldn’t see the solution as long as I was still thinking with the same thought system that created the “problem.”

My willingness to call forth and accept help from “above” was the thing that opened the door to my miraculous healing.

I’ve had SO MUCH miraculous healing since then and I’ve shared it with others who are having miraculous healing and that’s what inspires me every single day.

I am grateful that miraculous healing isn’t for special people.

Everyone is entitled to miracles. Miracles are natural. We don’t have to figure out how we allow. There are no REAL limitations.

Now, I’m making agreements with Spirit, rather than agreeing to lack and limitation.

I am calling forth a miracle for us every day. Thank you for praying with me and calling forth a miracle today!

Forgiveness Miracles

Friday, November 20th, 2020

I’ve had so much to forgive myself for.

Good heavens!

I used to believe that it was OK to manipulate people with my moods and attitudes. I grew up thinking that having an attitude, or getting into a mood was a way to effectively control and manipulate people to have them pay attention to me and do what I wanted. When I felt powerless, I’d find some way to feel more powerful. At the very least, I used to think, I can push people’s buttons and agitate them. It was the misuse of “power.”

I learned that if I was angry people would try to appease me.

I learned that if I was cold and distant people would inquire what was wrong and try to help me.
I learned that if I was sad people might comfort me.
Mostly I learned that manipulating people made me feel sick energetically.

In all of my relationships I found that others were manipulating me as much as I was manipulating them. It all felt SUPER uncomfortable, but that’s just the way it was. Everybody did it.

Forgiveness has taken me from the darkness to the Light.

I have had to forgive myself for so much, and actually doing that has been such a gift to me that it has changed my ENTIRE life!

Here’s a miracle: As I began to achieve some spiritual maturity, I realized that manipulating others, for any reason or in any way was a source of my suffering and theirs. It lacks authenticity and discourages intimacy – two things I deeply value.

Here’s a miracle: I dropped the controlling and manipulating behaviors and now. I notice that I rarely encounter anyone who tries to pull that behavior with me. If they do, I have compassion, because I know it comes from a place of deep wounding and suffering and I’m interested in Love, which is our healer.

I invite you to take a look at where you give yourself permission to manipulate people with your moods and attitudes. It creates more trouble than it could ever be worth. The worst fall out is that it will degrade your personal sense of self-esteem and worthiness.

Having loving relationship builds self-esteem and worthiness and that’s a far better investment of your precious energy, and that’s miraculous. Are you ready for a miracle? Join me in my Forgive & Be Free Classes this weekend.

Forgiveness Brings Peace

Thursday, November 19th, 2020

Forgiveness relieves suffering of every kind.

There is no form that suffering can take that cannot be relieved by the act of choosing forgiveness.  

The challenge is that there is so much confusion about forgiveness, what it is, and how it works.

It’s much simpler than we think. Forgiveness is simply this – releasing the opinions, judgments and meaning we’ve made of things.

We think we’re upset because someone did something we don’t like, but that’s the illusion.  It’s pure delusion.  And buying into that illusion IS suffering.  

For much of my life I * blamed others for all of my upsets and problems.  I projected it all out onto other people and situations.  I thought that would relieve my suffering.

Little did I know, it only magnified and multiplied my pain.  

The real cause of our upset is the decision to attack our brothers and sisters rather than to fulfill our purpose, which is to bless them, and to receive as we have given.  

When we choose the thoughts that attack and condemn, we will suffer.  If we didn’t suffer as a result there would be no alarm, no warning, we’d fall down the rabbit hole and keep going with no way to recognize our error.

Right now, in this holy instant, we can drop all of the blocks to love and recognize the truth in this beautiful passage from A Course in Miracles which I’ve laid out like a poem.

How can you who are so holy suffer?  

All your past except its beauty is gone, 

and nothing is left but a blessing.  

I have saved all your kindnesses 

and every loving thought you ever had.  

I have purified them of the errors that hid their light, 

and kept them for you in their own perfect radiance.  

They are beyond destruction and beyond guilt.  

They came from the Holy Spirit within you, 

and we know what God creates is eternal.  

You can indeed depart in peace because 

I have loved you as I loved myself.  

You go with my blessing and for my blessing. 

Hold it and share it, that it may always be ours.  

I place the peace of God in your heart 

and in your hands, to hold and share.  

The heart is pure to hold it, 

and the hands are strong to give it.  

We cannot lose.  

My judgment is as strong as the wisdom of God, 

in Whose Heart and Hands we have our being.  

His quiet children are His blessed Sons.  

The Thoughts of God are with you.  

A Course in MiraclesT-5.IV.8. 

We are perfect Love and we are perfectly loved, all that remains is for us to accept it.  This is the true Self-forgiveness.

Every moment we have this opportunity to let the past go, by releasing the meaning we made of it, and by releasing the idea that what occurred in the past has defined us.

Our experiences do not define us.

Our choices do not define us.

Our unity with God, defines us.  Nothing else can.

We’ve made a meaning of our life and being that is false.  We project it onto others and think they are the problem.  There is no problem.  ALL of our problems have been solved.  Yet, if we hold the idea we have problems we are sure to experience them.  And then we look for someone to blame.  

This is what we can forgive ourselves for and MOVE ON.

Forgiveness is the path of Joy, awakening, and Prosperity.  This I know.  Jesus tells me so.

And that’s why I’m offering my Forgive & Be Free class, in 3 parts, starting today.  Let’s do this sacred work joyfully, and JoyFULLY together!

TODAY –  MY FORGIVENESS CLASS:

Grief

Wednesday, November 18th, 2020

At this time of year, our feelings of grief can become overwhelming. For some people this is the first holiday season without their loved one who passed. For some, this is the last holiday season with a loved one who is preparing to depart. Either way, it can bring up intense grief.

With so much loss for so many – on many levels – there’s much to grieve for many people. I feel it’s important that we’re all aware who is grieving around us – they may not show it.

Experiencing what feels like a great loss of any kind, whether it’s a loved one, a job, or any type of identification can be extremely difficult. It can feel overwhelming like no other thing we experience.

Grief can feel shattering for the ego, the personality.

When there’s a loss of a loved one, a job, a home, or something important – it can be a loss of identity that’s completely disorienting.

And then, sometimes, for some people, the grief can morph into a sense that their grief and suffering are what make them special. If the suffering goes on a while it can be difficult to let go of. It becomes part of their new (false) identification. The martyr takes over, and it can feel very sticky.

Grief is never wrong. It’s not a failure. It’s a part of our human experience. We can be tender with ourselves – and we can get MUCH comfort in connecting with others who are also experiencing extreme loss – there’s SO MUCH HEALING in that connection.

Grief can include an unwillingness to give up a strong attachment.

In Spirit, we are eternally one, so there’s no relationship we have to actually give up. Yet, for us to be happy, we do have to give up the attachment. Releasing an attachment is deeply healing, but it can feel very sad and disorienting.

The grief itself can just be another expression of the attachment to the relationship – and that’s a VERY important and valuable distinction.

In a sense, attachments are false idols. They can never make us happy.

We can lose a loved one, a job, a home, etc, and confront our attachment, release it and feel great Freedom, Peace, and Joy while still loving our loved one, our former job, our former home. Giving up the attachment doesn’t mean giving up that which we love, it means giving up the attachment and ONLY the attachment.

When we become identified in our own mind as the one who suffers, the one who is without, and in lack, sometimes we begin to affirm it over and over again all day long. It’s insidious. And it can happen REALLY fast. It’s like a virus that takes over our heart, our mind, and then our identity

One time I had an experience of meeting two other women at an event. It was just before Mother’s Day and we quickly discovered that all three of our precious mothers had seemingly died of cancer. If we had wanted to, we could have formed a club – the dead cancer mom’s club or something like that.

I don’t identify as someone who has “lost” her Mom because I feel she’s with me in Spirit always. I’m one with her, so she can’t be gone from me even though I don’t see her anymore. I feel her. She’s gone ahead, and not far away.

I don’t identify with being motherless because I don’t live in the past. I sometimes briefly recall the past, but not often – and when I do, I share from what I’ve learned in my experiences because that feels truly helpful for others and that’s my aspiration: to be truly helpful to my brothers and sisters in this world.

Living in the past, no matter how great it might have been, only makes for a limited experience of Love now. For myself, I’ve learned there’s absolutely no value in holding onto the past. I can let ALL of it go.

I’ve found that offering any grief and suffering to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing has worked. Of course, it doesn’t work if we’re not actually willing. It can take a while to get to the point of real willingness. And we must be gentle with ourselves – we cannot rush this.

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

Miraculous Power of Forgiveness

Tuesday, November 17th, 2020

Every year at this time I offer forgiveness classes.  The reason is that I feel one of the times that folks are the MOST motivated to do the family forgiveness work is right before the Thanksgiving holiday, before the whole holiday season begins.

So many people have mixed feelings about the holidays because so many things get triggered at this time.  It can become a real emotional and mental storm – and then add in the rich food and it’s now a storm on every front!

Forgiveness can lead us out of the muck and mire.

In Masterful Living we put a BIG focus on forgiving ourselves for adopting false beliefs, energizing them with our attention and with building our life around them.

Most people feel forgiveness is for what other people have done, but the key to true forgiveness is forgiving ourselves.

The better we become at it, the less there is to forgive.  Our forgiveness is pre-emptive.  It gets out in front of the storm to dispel it.  

And that’s a relief.

I love the band REO Speedwagon, but I’m not interested in riding the storm out anymore.  No, thank you very much.

I can think of no greater gift to our brothers and sisters, our mothers and fathers, in their time of need, then to do our own forgiveness work so we can be free to love them fully.

It’s a blessing to all when one of us can let the past go.

Forgiveness is a beautiful thing.

I would like to think of a new name for it.  Something like:  forfreeness.   

I’m for liberation – and I am 100% sure that spiritual practice is the way.  I’m so glad we can be mighty companions on the journey!

Ease, Grace and Prosperity

Monday, November 16th, 2020

In Masterful Living this year, we’ve been looking at our spiritual relationship with money and abundance. We’re looking deeply into patterns of lack and limitation. It’s been so liberating and we’re having a lot of aha’s.

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

There was a time when I was deficit spending in my finances and there was also a time I was deficit spending in terms of my happiness. It was a repeating pattern that kept pulling me down in so many ways.

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

Many people thing that the answer to debt is simply to earn more money or to cut expenses. What I’ve definitely proven is that shifting my mind from a focus on lack and limitation to a focus on gratitude and Love was the most effective change for me to activate my Abundance.

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

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

This taught me that the answer wasn’t in the world – I learned it for REAL and so that led to my gratitude. I prayed for the answer and it came in the form of clarity, insight and divine guidance.

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

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

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

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

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

Being able to heal with ease and grace is an expression of Prosperity.

Being able to receive Love and the ALL good of life is part of the experience of Abundance.

Forgiveness unlocks the limits of Prosperity and Abundance, because it unlocks the patterns of lack and limitation.

So much healing is available to us when we stop blocking the flow with regrets and resentments.

Together we’re activating our abundance – we’re going for it! Forgiveness is the way.

Me & the Blues Brothers

Sunday, November 15th, 2020

I studied the teachings of Ernest Holmes, the author of Science of Mind teachings for many years. I got my license in 2000 as a Science of Mind Practitioner at the Agape International Spiritual Center and then as a minister in 2006. One of the things I love about Holmes is his clarity. He has a lot to share that’s helpful when it comes to healing.

A favorite quote of mine is from the Science of Mind textbook. Holmes said, “healing does not take time. The only time it takes to have healing is the time it takes to have a realization.

Many people think that healing in this world takes time, but it doesn’t. How could it when time isn’t even real? We have the belief that healing takes time and therefore it appears to take time.

Eliminate the belief in order to reveal the truth. You will now be able to see instantaneous healing is available.

This applies to ALL kinds of healing.

All healing is at the level of the mind FIRST and then the result shows up in other ways. First, we must change our minds.

Right now, in this world, if we can change our minds, we can affect great change.

There’s the healing we can bring about if we’re willing to focus our attention.

The divisiveness we’re seeing in the United States can be healed when we’re willing to focus on affirming the unity of all life, all humanity.

While it seems as though there’s separation it’s frightening and distressing, it can be healed very quickly if we’re willing to let it heal. We can do this by holding the situation in our mind clearly, with strong intention.

We’re here ONLY to be truly helpful. What could be more helpful than visualizing the world we’d like to experience?

Ultimately, most of us would like to see the same things: Peace and Prosperity.

Peace and Prosperity are both spiritual qualities. All of the spiritual qualities are omnipresent and omnipotent. They are our essence, our very beingness.

To experience Peace and Prosperity, we must first align with that vibration.

And, we must take responsibility for what we see.

A Course in Miracles is very clear on this subject in the section of the Text entitled, “Responsibility for Sight,” where it says:

“This is the only thing that you need do for vision, happiness, release from pain, and the complete escape from sin, all to be given you.

Say only this, but mean it with no reservations, for here the power of salvation lies:

I am responsible for what I see.
I choose the feelings I experience,
and I decide upon the goal I would achieve.
And everything that seems to happen to me I ask for,
and receive as I have asked.

Deceive yourself no longer that you are helpless in the face of what is done to you. Acknowledge but that you have been mistaken, and all effects of your mistakes will disappear.”

When we’re saying that someone else is the problem, we’re not taking responsibility for our contribution, we’re denying the unity of all life, we’re not willing to see with divine sight.

Now is the time for us to take a step forward and be WILLING to have a realization of the unity of all life so that all sense of separation can disappear. Healing does not take time. This can happen in an instant. A holy instant.

We ARE the ones we’ve been waiting for.

Now is the time for us to activate and live our purpose, which is to be truly helpful!

Like the Blues Brothers, we’re on a mission from God – MISSION POSSIBLE – let’s get to it!

I’ve made a free video series about healing and spiritual awakening for those who are interested in signing up for the early bird waitlist of my year-long Masterful Living program. The series is all about Walking the Talk, & Living the Love and I’m enjoying making it! Click here to get access to the video series.

Family Forgiveness

In A Course in Miracles, Jesus lets us know very clearly that forgiveness is the way out of suffering.

I’ve proven that and many around me have too.  Forgiveness frees our families and our ancestors.  

When we learn to practice TRUE forgiveness, we’re set free.

Forgiveness is part of a divine discipline.

I have come to really like the word “disciple.”  It comes from the latin word for follower, student, learner.  I notice how closely the word disciple resembles the word discipline.  Discipline can mean to punish, but it can also mean teaching.  

I’ve come to learn that a disciple understands the value of discipline in the form of being able to stay focused on Love and the objective of spiritual awakening.  

The ego has it’s own disciplines that keep people conformed to trying to appease an insatiable need.  That surely is a punishment.

What interests me is to be watchful for the opportunities to extend Love and to heed the call to Love and be loving.  The ego is a trickster and will often instruct us to withdraw or withhold Love.  

The ego determines who is worthy and who is unworthy of Love and yet the ego knows nothing of Love.  Following the ego’s commands about Love surely leads to discipline that is a punishment.  It is a block to Love.

As we’re approaching the holiday times, let us realize that the time to extend Love is always now.  The time to withhold Love is never.

Because we’re one with all, when we withhold Love we are truly only cutting off ourselves from the flow of all that is good, and healing and helping us to remember our true identity.  If we withhold Love from someone we withhold it from ourselves – there’s no way to punish someone and not be punished ourselves.

In my lifetime, I’ve experienced the great suffering coming from following the ego and disciplining myself to be fearful and watchful of others – placing my trust in the ego rather than Love.  It’s taken great willingness and a divine discipline to become a disciple of Love’s way.   In this divine discipline I have found Peace.

Love is our way.  It is our natural way.  Love is what we are.  Let’s embrace what we are and realize that if it’s true for us, it’s true for everyone.  This is where our understanding of our worth comes from.  It comes from our willingness to Love without grasping, needing or wanting.

Through our divine discipline of Love without conditions we are healed.

Love is our healer and in our family we can take the lead through forgiveness.

 Forgiveness is the release of the blocks to Love.  Where there’s more Love flowing there’s a healing happening.  

Let’s claim our healing and share it with everyone!  Every act of Love and kindness is a healing balm for all.  We change the world with our choice to forgive and open up the floodgates of Love.

All boats rise on this tide of Love.  

The holidays are coming, and it’s an opportunity to put the past behind us and be the super hero of healing in our family.  If this interests you, consider joining me on Saturday!

Prep For Being A Miracle Worker

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020

Here in the USA, things are super intense.  We can all feel the intensity because of our election and wondering how it will be resolved.  People have such strong feelings and fears.  And this on top of a global pandemic.  And then there are so many other issues caused by the pandemic.  It’s a very intense time.

AND this is the time we wouldn’t wish to miss.

This is the time for which we have decided to incarnate at this time.

We are the chosen.  All beings are chosen to be the Light of the world, but we’re actually saying a big yes to it.

In Masterful Living class last night we were talking about Spirit being the source of all the good in our lives and not the things of this world.  Let’s accept that this is true and put Spirit in charge, really in charge, of our good.

Let’s open to receive all the good that is ours to receive – this will TRULY make the world a better place for ALL OF US to live in.

During this time of intensity, we are really needed to hold the form.

We hold the form of heaven breaking out all over.  We don’t hold a vision of hell on earth.  Our job, our mission, our life is about holding the form for the highest and best to unfold.  

We can be vigilant only for God.  It might seem difficult to do this, but this is how we train our mind only to hold that which brings benefit and to let the past go. 

We were born to be miracle workers.

Time to get to work.

We have what it takes!  Let’s put it to use!

Spiritual Activism

Monday, November 2nd, 2020

Let’s REALLY be the change we’d like to see in our family, in our neighborhood, in our workplace in our heart. For myself, the key has been to hold a vision of Love and to release all grievances and to put my attention on that – rather than trying to figure out what to do in the world of form.

I am a spiritual activist.

I work at the level of the mind. Like my teachers: Jesus, Gandhi, King, and St. Francis, I take inspired action, but I start with prayer, with partnering UP, with releasing the judgments and opinions that could cloud my vision.

Holding a vision for a peaceful world is no joke, it’s a life’s purpose.

There’s so much power in holding a vision. Just think how many billions of people on this plan know these words, who said them, why, and what it meant to the entire world:

“I have a dream …”

King had a vision. It’s the vision of Freedom ringing through our hearts, our minds, our nation and the world. Freedom from tyranny, injustice and prejudice. The Freedom to fully Love and accept our brothers and sisters.

When we’re trying to change the world through working only in the visible we will tire easily and accomplish much less than those who take inspired action.

Inspired action comes from our loving heart holding a vision of the highest and best for all.

If you are an American citizen, and you have not voted, please make a plan to vote now. It’s never been more important to take a stand for Love. Vote with your heart and you cannot go wrong. Vote for Love and with Love.

If you don’t know where to vote or drop your ballot off you can text POLLS to 30330 and get the answer! 

Now is the time for us to fully commit to do what we came here for – hold the highest and best for EVERYONE.  Release all patterns of lack and attack and stand in the Light of Love.  This is our purpose.  

Being truly helpful starts in the mind and ripples outward.  Our time is now!

Angelic Assistance

Saturday, October 31st, 2020

I’m one of those people that believes that spiders and other insects are to be captured and released back to the wild.  When I find a spider in the house I put a glass over it and then capture it and put it outside.  

Sometimes it can be tricky to capture an insect.  They can be fast and evasive.  Yesterday there was a rather large spider in the living room and it didn’t wish to be caught, even though, it was ready to get outside again.  Rather than struggle with it, I asked the angels for help.  Before you know it the spider presented itself again and was easy enough to catch and release.  

Thank you, Angels!

One of the most common causes of difficulty in our lives is that folks struggle with going it alone.  So often, people don’t believe there is divine assistance so they’re not open to receiving any and then they get their wish – to do it themselves.

I’ve realized there’s no benefit to doing it themselves.  None at all.  Suffering isn’t beneficial in anyway whatsoever.  Struggling on your own is, in fact, wasteful.  All of heaven will help us when we’re willing to choose Love and to be of service to the Light.

When we think we’re on our own, then life seems to be against us.  When we’re willing to recognize that we’ve got God and the angels to support us, then life is much easier.  

We do have to be willing to accept divine assistance in order to experience it.

Once we get the hang of it, life improves considerably!

Are you going it alone?  Would you ask the angels to help you without telling them how to help you?

Please share your experiences and let me know your experiences of asking for assistance and receiving it.  

One thing to note is that some folks are attached to the idea that they are so unworthy that God has abandoned them and they’ll only allow more of that experience of feeling left out.  If you feel that’s your story, then please, give the story and all your belief in it to Spirit for healing.  Invite the angels to show you that you are loved and supported and they surely will.  Then, your challenge is to be receptive.

I’ve learned the INCREDIBLE power of being receptive to Spirit’s Love and assistance and I can’t say enough about how WORTHY we ALL are!

Let’s open to receive divine assistance now.

We’re entitled to miracles and now is the time to experience them!

Real Will Power

Friday, October 30th, 2020

I’m a healer – but only for me. I can’t heal anyone else, but I can facilitate other people having an AMAZING healing, if they’re willing.

Oh, and isn’t it a powerful healing when we’re finally willing and ready to recognize that the only limitations we have are the ones that we agree to? Yes, it is!! I love to see those limitations bite the dust!

The only grievances we have are the ones that we agree to.

The only way someone can take advantage of us is if we agree to it.

The only way we can feel limited is if we agree to limitations.

When I first began to realize these things, it felt like a dead weight on top of me because I didn’t know HOW to release the limiting thoughts.

I was stopped by my belief that it couldn’t be done because I didn’t know how to do it.

I was stopped by my belief that I was on my own, and if I didn’t know how to do it, I had no resources and so I had to accept that it couldn’t be done.

Fortunately, I had that little bit of willingness that Jesus talks about in A Course in Miracles. My little bit of willingness kept me praying. My prayers to have a healing were answered, in part, by my realization that I could Partner UP. I realized that limitations are really only in my thinking, not in my true reality.

I decided that it didn’t matter HOW the healing happened, I was calling forth a healing and I was accepting it. I gave the heavy lifting of figuring out the “how” to the Higher Holy Spirit Self. I knew I couldn’t see the solution as long as I was still thinking with the same thought system that created the “problem.”

My willingness to call forth and accept help from “above” was the thing that opened the door to my miraculous healing. I’ve had SO MUCH miraculous healing since then and I’ve shared it with others who are having miraculous healing and that’s what inspires me every single day.

Willingness is the REAL will power.

I am grateful that miraculous healing isn’t for special people. Everyone is entitled to miracles. Miracles are natural. We don’t have to figure out how, we allow.

There are no REAL limitations.

I am calling forth a miracle for us every day. Thank you for praying with me and calling forth a miracle today!

Undoing Ego Thinking

Tuesday, October 20th, 2020

In my podcast today, I’ll be sharing about Undoing the Ego Thinking.  This is the primary focus in my classes – so that we can feel more Peace, Love and Joy. The ego thought system is one that ensnares us, like a fly caught in a Venus trap.  We felt the attraction, we got caught, stuck and trapped.  We didn’t have the strength to get out.  

All of that can change.

Our willingness to get off the pain train and stay off is all that’s Required.

I’ve done a battle with pleasure and pain in a way that is familiar to any folks.  I’ve gone after pleasures of eating, exercising, drinking and even smoking to excess so that I am absolutely clear that I’m not helping myself, not enjoying myself and in some twisted way punishing myself.  It was demoralizing and I’m very glad I don’t feel compulsive about that kind of behavior any longer.

This experience of confusion between pleasure and pain could be something like a lovely dessert that becomes two or three portions and then a feeling of way too much sugar.  I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but I used to do that with chips, popcorn and crackers.  I’d feel that I’d eaten too much and definitely too much salt.  

I notice now that I rarely overeat, and I rarely eat things that I regret and that’s HUGE for me.  I know now that it happened because of my willingness to do the self-forgiveness inner work.  This is why I feel compelled to keep offering opportunities to do this work in a group – so we don’t get overwhelmed by our resistance and reluctance.

Every year, folks in class with me tell me stories of how they did the class work and they naturally experienced losing a bunch of weight and keeping it off, having arthritis pain lesson dramatically and then needing fewer and fewer pain killers, as well as, of course, chronic pain disappearing entirely.

I think for some people the constant feeling of physical discomfort is what keeps them in the cycle of negative pleasure.  I can remember feeling that some form of self-medication was “all I had” that brought me pleasure.  It was “all I had” to take my mind off my unhappiness.

I used so many things that were enjoyable in small doses but became painful in larger doses.  They were all meant to distract me from my feelings, but they only led me into a deeper hole of feeling that I was a fake and a failure.

It’s so liberating to be able to enjoy the pleasures of life without feeling addicted or compulsive towards them.  I feel that my whole life is better because I’m not having to control my impulses, I’m naturally choosing the things that are self-loving.  It’s a whole different way of living.  It’s a MAJOR release of worry and guilt and shame.  YAY!

It’s because spiritual practice has eliminated the ROOT CAUSE of my negative pleasure habits.  DOUBLE YAY!

This healing has definitely brought me a constant feeling of higher vibration in my beingness.  

Living at a higher vibration, I notice that I naturally am less interested in lower vibrational choices, so I don’t have to struggle with behavior modification and trying to release those negative pleasure habits – they fell away gracefully.  HALLELUJAH.  I didn’t even IMAGINE that was possible for me.

The healing power and presence of God’s Love is REAL.

I know that now.  I also now know that it’s available for everyone.

I really didn’t think I’d be able to get to the place I am now.  The main turning point for me was when I made my spiritual life and practice the most important part of my life.  It was during that time that I shifted into the healing practices that became my Finding Freedom From Fear spiritual bootcamp and my life began change for the better – and it’s continued to this day.  

My whole orientation changed and I began to achieve lasting success and the healing took hold in my heart and mind.

I no longer have any days where I feel like I’m sliding back.  That feeling is gone and I am forever grateful!

New Decisions

Monday, October 19th, 2020

Why does prayer work? This is the important thing for us to understand. Our Spirit already knows why prayer works. Our Spirit already knows. Our Spirit has no question about it, has no confusion about it.

Our Spirit absolutely knows, unequivocally, that “Prayer is the medium of miracles.” as it says in the Text of A Course in Miracles“Prayer is the medium of miracles.” It is, if you will, the ground. Like soil is the medium that you plant a seed in. “Prayer is the medium of miracles.” It is the soil that the miracle grows in.  This is critical to what we study all year in our Masterful Living class.

Spirit already knows the answer to every question that we have. Our Spirit, which is part of the Spirit– part of God— Spirit, our Spirit, THE Spirit, is not bound by time and space.  Spirit doesn’t have blocks to awareness of everything in time and space, to every causation of every single thing in this world, from a slight cough to the most complex disease, to poverty.  Every single cause and cure is known in the Mind of God. There’s no confusion whatsoever.

But we, in our holding onto the decisions that we’ve made about the past, are holding onto the blocks to Love which prevent us from seeing, knowing, feeling, and hearing clearly what the truth is. The antidote to those blocks, the removal of those blocks, is completely, 100%, dependent upon our willingness to experience the Clarity rather than the confusion.  

In order to experience the Clarity rather than the confusion, we must make a new decision. A new decision.

The way our experience works in this human realm is, we make decisions about life, and what we think life means – we give it all the meaning that it has for us. 

We make decisions like “I’m not good enough.” We make decisions like “Dogs are not safe.” Or, “People are not safe.” Or, “Women are not safe.” Or, “Men are not safe.” Or, “White people are not safe.”

We make all kinds of decisions based on our experience, and then those become the blocks to Love, because they’re not true.

They are a projection. They are perception. They are beliefs that are the effects of the decisions we made. 

For example, let’s say that someone in our childhood is very unloving to us, and so we form the belief we’re unlovable. I’ve worked with many people, as a Spiritual Counselor, who were cruelly treated as children.  Many times, those people come to believe their care givers, are treating them this way because there’s something horribly wrong with them. They think, it must be them. They deserve it. 

This is often what happens with children. My mother used to work in childhood services, and she would see things like a child who has been burned with a cigarette, and violently attacked in the home. The children are taken away to child services, and many times all that child wants is to get back to that very same caregiver, that parent, or whoever it is, who was hurting them.

We interpret things incorrectly and then make decisions based on our interpretations.

And this places blocks in the mind.  Like veils in the mind, that become a distortion of reality.  In order to heal this, we can use prayer. Because there’s not one person on this planet– I’m absolutely convinced of this, there’s not one person on this planet that makes a prayer, or offers a prayer request, that does not have a small amount of willingness to have healing. 

Why would we write out a prayer request and put it in a prayer box if you had no willingness to receive the healing and the transformation? Why would we ask for prayer, why would we make a prayer, unless we had the tiniest little bit of willingness to receive the answered prayer? Prayer is POWERFUL!  Let’s pray all throughout our day. 

Let’s pray to let go of all the decisions we’ve made that are predicated upon a false conclusion. 

We can even pray for greater willingness!

Prodigal Daughter?

Sunday, October 18th, 2020

I used to feel like there was some kind of invisible lid on my life. Maybe you could call it a spiritual glass ceiling.

I felt that no matter what class I took or book I read, I was still not having the breakthrough and momentum that I so deeply desired. I began to feel quite discouraged. I thought it was me. I began to think that it was just more evidence that something was wrong with me. (Though, truth be told, I’d didn’t see a whole lot of people around me having amazing breakthroughs and healing.)

Sometimes I’d think that there was some mysterious, magical code that I must be missing. I mean, it had to be something like that because I was putting so much time, money and effort into my spiritual studies. I just wanted to find out what the code was, and who had the key.

Well, it turns out that I had the code, AND I had the key.

In a sense, it was like that moment when Dorothy, in The Wizard of Oz, realizes that she had the power all along. The difference is, it didn’t happen for me all at once. It dawned on me slowly.

One thing I learned is that the truth is written in our heart. It’s already there, pre-installed, but we do have to decide to access it in order to experience it.

The way we access it is through our willingness, our desire, and expressions of Love.

I found the path that I was looking for in my own heart.
The path I was looking for was to loving myself.

I had to be willing to Love myself enough to release all the blocks to Love.

Dorothy’s journey is archetypal.
She’s a kind of prodigal daughter.

Think about it:
She gets mad.
She runs away from home.
She gets lost in a foreign land.
She has a lot of adventures, but she really just wants to return home to the love of her family.
When she returns, she’s waking from a dream.

The dream of not having, lacking, wanting and searching ultimately leads us all back to our hearts. There’s no where else to go.

So, of course I had to stop looking outside myself and come back into my heart. That’s the great journey. AND no matter where we are in the journey – we can drop what we’re distracted by and come back into our hearts RIGHT NOW. We don’t have to wait! FOR REAL.

That’s the thing about the ego – it’s always conditional. To the ego, everything is conditional. Everything has to be earned. The Spirit doesn’t work that way because Spirit is a NOW system. LOVE is a NOW thing. Love ONLY exists in the now. Ego is always in the past or the future.

Our journey home to our heart is NOW. That’s the only time we can experience it is now.

That glass ceiling I was feeling, that resistance and reluctance – that stuckness – was simply the belief that I was lacking and that I didn’t have what it took.

We all have what it takes!

We’re all pure Spirit – how could we be lacking?

Today’s the day to truly practice the Presence, with gratitude and Self-Love.

Today is our day to wake from the dream of endless limitations. We already have the power!

All we must do is look where we can find – and that’s within.

We must return home to our heart to feel whole.

No matter how ugly you think it might be inside your heart, no matter how empty or depraved – that’s where the kingdom is. The kingdom is just underneath whatever rotten thing you think might be there. Look past the delusion of less than and not enough and you will see the kingdom.

A Course in Miracles tells us we are God’s treasure. Let’s live as if we knew it!

Gain Without Pain

Saturday, October 17th, 2020

Pain can push us to stop settling for unhappiness.

It might seem counter intuitive or it might seem just plain insane, but pain is helpful.

At times it’s incredibly helpful.  I used to be a runner.  I ran the New York Marathon in 1986 with my Dad.  In preparing to run the marathon I did many long training runs – 10, 12, 15, 18 and even 20 mile runs to get ready for the big 26.  

People become inured to pain.  

It doesn’t happen over night, but it happens drip by drip.

I learned that if I had some aches and pains before a run I wouldn’t take any kind of pain killer, because that’s how people injure themselves.  If they’re numb to the pain then they don’t know when to stop, when to shift and change.  It’s true for athletes and it’s true for everyone.  

If we numb ourselves to the pain, the agitation and irritation, and all the other myriad of feelings and emotions then we’ll not be aware when to make a change.  

I’ve learned this:  

If I can feel it, Spirit can heal it – when I’m willing to let it go.

Pain often comes from blocking the flow of Love.

Even if we’re intentionally blocking the flow of Love, don’t we wish to have a wake-up call in order to know when we’re hurting ourselves?

I used to deceive myself into thinking I could block the pain and still have the Joy, but I ultimately had to face the fact that it’s not possible.  If I’m not willing to feel the emotions I don’t like, and the feelings that bother or confuse me, so I block them all, that’s not going to be the end of it.  

I cannot selectively block the suffering, but allow the happy to spread like wildfire.  If I shut part of my feelings down, I’m shutting them all down.  

I’ve learned to be grateful that I get the emotions and feelings that signal when my thinking is sticking.  I’m grateful that my feelings let me know when I’ve ridden the pain train to crazy town and it’s time for me to partner UP with the Higher Holy Spirit Self.

When we realize how much healing is available to us we can learn to become grateful for the indicators that we’ve lost track of what’s REALLY going on and it’s time to partner UP.

I’ve learned not to be distracted or deterred by trying to figure out or understand the ego perceptions, the causes of upset and other ego escapades.  

Bottom line:  the ego will never understand what the spirit already knows.  And that’s because ego is nothing.  Spirit is everything.

Why mess around with trying to figure out WHY we’re having a problem when we can go direct to the problem has been healed back to the root cause?

I’ve made so many trips to crazy town on the pain train and I don’t wish to make one more.  The things I learned that healed my life and led me to the happiness I have now are the gold and diamonds of my life.  And that’s what I share in my classes.

We can learn to transcend pain and heal the root causes.

No More Tolerating Hate Speech

Friday, October 16th, 2020

Yesterday, I saw a headline that startled me and so I posted the link to the article with the picture

And I asked this question:

“I’m curious, do you think she would feel like HER workplace was hostile if someone used the word that begins with c and rhymes with runt? Just wondering … what are your thoughts?”

The comments quickly became political, which is not what I had been hoping for. And so, I spoke up in the comments and then I revised my post all together and said this (with a couple of additional edits):

To me, this is not about politics and it’s not about this 1 person’s statement, opinion or perception: If I were a black person and someone used the N word in my work environment, I would not feel safe.

Heck, I’ll be honest you, as a white person, I wouldn’t feel safe if someone started using the N word – I would, of course, use my awareness as a spiritual student to bring Love and compassion to bring forth the wisdom of the Holy Spirit.

AND, if I didn’t have that ability, if it were me 30 years ago, I, FOR SURE would feel threatened and not safe with people using racial slurs. Because of how I was raised, I would endeavor to help the people who were using those words to raise their awareness – but that doesn’t mean it would be safe or comfortable for me.

If someone used the C*nt word in my environment I would not feel safe. I’ve had that happen and I didn’t feel safe. If people use derogatory, racial, sexual slurs around me I am not feeling myself to be in a safe environment. BECAUSE IT’S NOT SAFE. It’s not safe for ANYONE.

When people are derogatory and sarcastic, and using words that are attack words, it is an unsafe environment for EVERYONE.

If someone attacks ANYONE, they attack EVERYONE. All is one.

There’s nothing political about my bringing this up. This is about the SOCIETY and CULTURE in which we live. This is about what we find acceptable and unacceptable.

Right now, I live in Vermont, where it is 99% white people. And there are BLACK LIVES MATTER signs everywhere. There have been regular BLM demonstrations here in the town square, week after week, with ONLY white people.

This is about realizing that hateful words cause a disturbance that is NOT TO BE TRIVIALIZED.

If you were the only Jew in the room and people started using words that are derogatory ONLY about Jews, you would feel threatened and disrespected. Of course, you would.

My point is not about politics. Take the woman’s photo off this headline, her name and her opinion and just see this:

Using The N-Word at Work Doesn’t Make A Workplace “Hostile”

I’m interested in cultivating a society and community that values loving sensitivity and absolutely NO MORE TOLERANCE OF HATE SPEECH.

We must change our minds about tolerating this kind of talk in our culture. NOW.

We don’t attack the ones who use hate speech because clearly, they are already feeling attacked and threatened or they would be speaking differently. They would be living from their loving heart if THEY felt safe.

The only way that we can ALL feel safe is if we care for each other and stop attacking, and tolerating attack.

>The attacker ALWAYS feels attacked.
>The judger ALWAYS feels judged.
>The lover ALWAYS feels beloved.

Why? Because it’s EMANATING from them.

Let’s teach ONLY Love for that IS what we ALL are.

No more tolerance of hate speech.

When we hear something, see something, let’s say something – and let it be kind, from our heart. WE CAN DO THIS!

It is ours to do!
I love you!

Breathing and Healing

Thursday, October 15th, 2020

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

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

One very beneficial way we can increase our vitality is through breathing consciously.

This is one of the things that my kundalini yoga practice has taught me.  If I sense myself getting tense, I turn to deep breathing.  This is something anyone who has the ability can do without cost at anytime.  

Here are the benefits of long, deep breathing:   

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

That’s a LOT of benefits!!!

There are some healing techniques that you can use and you can read about them here.    You can also join my 40 Day Meditation Challenge – it’s a simple practice that many are finding so very helpful.  It’s free to join us Click here now to learn more.

I urge you to become a “breath expert.”

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

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

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

While I’m practicing this deep breathing, I’m visualizing myself filled and surrounded with golden white Light and I make I AM statements of positive affirmation.

“I AM the purity of Love.”  Is a favorite.  “I AM the light of the world.”  “I am an eternal being of infinite Love.”  You can find the ones that resonate most for you.  

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

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

Have you practiced long deep breathing and know the benefits?  Are you participating in the 40 Day Meditation Challenge?  Please tell us about it and share in the comments below!  Let’s join together for our healing and inspire each other!  Thank you!

Cultivating My Neutral Mind

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020

When we place our faith in anything other than God’s Love for us, we’ll be upset. That’s how life works.

It’s so tempting to put our trust into our own ability to judge what’s happening in the world as good or bad – but how can we really know unless we can see the cause and effect of EVERYTHING.

It was a breakthrough for me to realize that my inability to see through all directions of time and space meant it was impossible for me to really know what anything is for – and therefore I cannot know that it’s not good.

I cannot judge it good or bad at all, and actually know that I’m correct.

I used to have so many pronouncements about what is good and bad, without actually knowing and I caused myself a great deal of pain that way. That’s why I was so relieved to realize I could change that habit and stop trying to figure out if everything was good or bad and what its purpose was.

Instead, I could simply trust. Yay, God!

Right now, with all that’s happening in the world, it’s more important than ever not to judge.

Let us remember that A Course in Miracles tells us everything is actually neutral.
“To learn this course requires willingness to question every value that you hold. Not one can be kept hidden and obscure but it will jeopardize your learning. No belief is neutral. Every one has the power to dictate each decision you make. For a decision is a conclusion based on everything that you believe.” A Course in Miracles, T-24.in.2.

Our beliefs are the basis of our thoughts which are the basis of our feelings. This is why we work at the level of the mind to relinquish our attachments to the beliefs that are false and that works – it works to release the cause of suffering and to expand our Peace and happiness. It works.

Will you join me and together we’ll surrender the thoughts that upset us so. What a blessing that we can do this. We have what it takes. Holy Spirit is our trainer and we are getting in shape!

The Appeal of Hell

Tuesday, October 13th, 2020

Haven’t we all chosen hell when we didn’t have to?  Sometimes we do it to spite ourselves or someone else.  Sometimes we feel compelled and can’t resist.  It’s a crazy world and we can lose our minds in it.

I can remember actively choosing the very things that I knew would cause me harm.  Even staying up too late would be something completely unnecessary that would then have repercussions that I didn’t need.  

I would get into an argument with someone and then go too far.  

Then I’d feel guilty and ashamed and angry because I felt guilty and ashamed.

I’d want to blame it on someone else, but always knowing it was my choice, and I blew it.

There is a choice for hell.

Sometimes we make it.

I notice that I don’t do that anywhere in my life anymore, but I used to do it all over the place.  So, that’s the good news.  

How did I do it?

Forgiveness works.

Doing the real spiritual work of interrupting the patterns, choosing Love, self-forgiveness, extending compassion and all of the things that I teach about.

I’m so glad to have found things that actually work, for real.

We can choose heaven.  We don’t have to choose hell.  We have choice.

We can choose Love and Peace instead of hell.

Releasing the Pain of the Past

Monday, October 12th, 2020

I used to have memories of things I’d said and done that would make me cringe at the remembrance of them. It was an awful feeling. A mix of shame and regret. These memories would come over me and I’d literally shudder to think of them.

Self-forgiveness freed me from all of that.

Self-forgiveness gave me humility and common sense.

Self-forgiveness gave me the freedom to no longer beat myself up from the past.

Most people I know have strong regrets, some people are tortured by them and I pray they find self-forgiveness.

One of the most beautiful things to know about self-forgiveness is that when we truly release the judgments of the past, we will likely barely think of those past errors again as there’s simply no need to.

The past is resolved and the attachment or judgment of the past is dissolved.

We are free.

My life of mistakes, short comings, obnoxious and belligerent behavior and outbursts, and a million missed opportunities to extend

Love has taught me to take responsibility for my choices and actions.

To learn from them and share what I learn.

No blame.
No shame.

As Thich Nhat Hath says, blaming never helps.

Everyone I know makes errors.

Life is a constant stream of tactical errors, missteps, freak outs, meltdowns and mayhem, and yet, we can rise above the battleground with self-forgiveness. We can remember to laugh. We can remember to have compassion. We can set ourselves free with admitting the truth, and having the humility to take responsibility for our choices and their effects.

One thing that helps me is the last paragraph at the end of Chapter V, the text of A Course in Miracles – this one paragraph is a complete life-changer:

“Decision cannot be difficult. This is obvious, if you realize that you must already have decided not to be wholly joyous if that is how you feel. Therefore, the first step in the undoing is to recognize that you actively decided wrongly, but can as actively decide otherwise. Be very firm with yourself in this, and keep yourself fully aware that the undoing process, which does not come from you, is nevertheless within you because God placed it there. Your part is merely to return your thinking to the point at which the error was made, and give it over to the Atonement in peace. Say this to yourself as sincerely as you can, remembering that the Holy Spirit will respond fully to your slightest invitation: I must have decided wrongly, because I am not at peace. I made the decision myself, but I can also decide otherwise. I want to decide otherwise, because I want to be at peace. I do not feel guilty, because the Holy Spirit will undo all the consequences of my wrong decision if I will let Him. I choose to let Him, by allowing Him to decide for God for me.” T-5.VII.6.

Let’s give all the consequences to the Holy Spirit for healing and move the heck on in gratitude for the gift of God’s unerring grace! Are you willing? That’s all that’s required!

Relationship Hell

Sunday, October 11th, 2020

Relationship hell? I’ve been there. I’ve explored it in many ways, traversing the downs and way downs of it. When I was younger, as a child, a teen ager and until about age 30, I would get so angry that I felt what I describe as a murderous rage.

I’d become so upset, so threatened, and so afraid of being hurt that all I could feel was fury and desperation. My upset was like a hurricane, searching for some way to calm down, but only picking up speed and becoming more and more dangerous. I would frighten myself I’d be so upset.

I’d become so loud, and mean and desperate, without any self-control, that I’d rage until I was too tired to continue. Reaching exhaustion was the only thing that would get me to stop. My family’s or boyfriend’s attempts to control me would only make me infuriated. It was awful.

Once exhausted, I would collapse into a puddle of my own despair. I’d be consumed by self-hatred and fear of myself. It was all proof that something was horribly, uncontrollably wrong with me. I was beyond hope, or so I was convinced.

I learned to accept that this was just who I was, what I was. I felt like a bad seed. I felt like there was some kind of demon in me and that terrified me. That fear was so intense that I couldn’t handle any kind of criticism or teasing. I learned to be very focused on self-preservation.

What I can understand now, that I didn’t understand then, is that it was extremely important that I learn how to have no other authority. I needed to be my own authority. No one could boss me around or intimidate me. When I was younger, it meant that I was always in a fight with the people I was “rebelling” against.

Now, I can see that I wasn’t really a rebel at all. I was maintaining my sovereignty. When I finally reached the point where I could make Spirit the authority in my life and really listen to that still small voice, I had the ability to walk in the world without being pulled this way and that by other people’s opinions. My mind was able to be strong and focused, following Spirit’s guidance.

Historically, if you look at many of the mystics, you can see that they appeared to be rebels too. That wasn’t their intention. It just looked that way.

Unfortunately, I went through many seasons of relationship hell where I felt completely unlovable. I felt excruciatingly bad and wrong so much of the time – but that didn’t stop me from acting out. I was frequently mean and cruel in defense of my insecurities. Now, I have great compassion for people who behave that way and I can really help them to break out of it.

I learned to try to control everything around me, constantly monitoring, to keep from being manipulated and controlled by others. I learned to always be on the offense as my best form of defense. It was exhausting.

I was constantly cleaning up the messes I made in my relationships or just walking away from them. Many bridges have been burned and many have been blown up.

I don’t ever wish to go back again in my past. I don’t look back anymore. Instead, I continuously ask the Higher Holy Spirit Self to help me harvest all the wisdom from my experiences.

What I learned is that I was constantly repeating my same upsets and errors because I was holding grudges. Holding grievances prevented me from learning from my experiences because I always thought I knew what everything was for.

When I learned to forgive, to give up my meaning for everything, then I could discover what things were really for, and harvest the wisdom they brought me. Eureka! It was a way out of hell!

The most amazing thing I’ve ever learned is that true forgiveness heals deeply. True forgiveness heals long held mental and emotional patterns in a miraculous way.

A Course in Miracles promises us that the Holy Spirit will undo all the consequences of our wrong decisions if we allow it. The thing is, most people feel so guilty, and believe that they should be punished, and so they won’t allow the consequences to be undone. Yet, no matter how long we’ve lived in that mindset, we can shift in an instant. We can get out of hell.

I’m so glad I figured out how to ALLOW all the consequences to be undone and to rescue my relationships.

I know this is a repetitive theme of mine, but I feel I absolutely have to keep sharing what is so precious to me – and that’s the realization that when we hold the highest and best for our relationships that’s exactly what comes to pass.

I’ve been a spiritual counselor since 2000. That’s 18 years of counseling individuals and couples. I’ve been teaching classes and leading retreats for 21 years. In all this time, with all of these people, almost everyone I’ve ever worked with was experiencing some kind of relationship upset that was rocking them to their core.

ACIM tells us that relationships are the #1 tool we have to heal our mind and wake up. Let’s do exactly that starting NOW.

Like me, many people have been so completely brought to their knees or flat on their face in the manure by their inability to maintain relationship harmony – and the meaning they make of it. This need not be.

Forgiveness is a miracle tool. It’s not magic. It’s miraculously healing, and that’s an entirely different thing from a temporary magic fix.

Miraculous healing lasts.

It’s permanent healing because it’s at the level of the mind – not the level of the personality.

This isn’t behavior modification or anger management – it’s true and lasting healing.

This isn’t self-improvement, because we don’t need improvement – we only need to let go of that which is false.

Hey, I still get annoyed on a regular basis.
I don’t get angry like I used to AT ALL anymore.
I don’t ever go to the place of thinking that there’s something wrong with me.
That’s completely over.
And that’s what I am holding for everyone.

As a counselor, I’ve worked with people who’ve felt way beyond any kind of hope, and they have been transformed by the healing of their mind.

They had to be willing.
They had to ALLOW the healing to take place, to call it forth, accept it and receive it. It’s not magic. It takes real willingness. It’s not a passive thing. It’s active willingness.

We cannot hold onto complaints and expect miracles.
We cannot hold onto grievances and also energize the highest and best.
We have to choose which way to go.
We can learn through pain or we can learn through miracles and Joy.

The holidays are coming.
It’s a time when we can either re-energize the old hurts, disappointments, regrets, guilt, blame, and shame – or we can decide to be a healing presence in our relationships.

We can repeat the past or we can call forth a renewal and restoration.
It’s our choice.

I’ve been teaching forgiveness for 20 years and it’s been a great learning to me. I continue to be AMAZED at how forgiveness transforms EVERYTHING, including our physical pains.

I don’t consider myself a healer, but I do feel that I’m a healing presence. Where I once was utterly convinced that I was a really bad person, I now know that there are no bad people. We’re all good and beautiful people who can sometimes get convinced that we’re bad and then act that way.

When someone feels unlovable they don’t have much to lose, but what little they do have they can’t afford to lose. They will defend themselves through attacking. Think of a wounded dog that’s been so hurt it doesn’t trust anyone.

When we can’t trust ourselves to be loving or kind, even when it’s really important to keep from ruining our relationships, then we can feel completely unworthy of Love. We’re not, but that’s how we feel.

Forgiveness is the only thing I know of that heals back to the root cause of things. When we ALLOW the healing back to the root cause, whatever that might be, in this life or any other, then we’re free forever! That recalibrates our whole life.

Now is the time to make a commitment to forgive EVERYTHING and let our ability to fully give and receive Love be restored to us.

No matter what we’ve done, no matter what has been done to us, we can be restored at the level of the mind. From the mind, it will ripple into all of our relationships and experiences, even into every cell, fiber and function of our physical, and emotional bodies as well.

Let’s get active with the forgiveness.
Let’s become experts at it.
Let’s deeply commit to truly heal by allowing the Holy Spirit to undo all the consequences of our wrong decisions – even the ones we don’t recall. The Holy Spirit can heal it all.

In my classes, I invite people to PROVE that God works. That way they KNOW, they really know.

Doing this work now, we can have completely different experiences this holiday season. Let’s get out in front of this.

We don’t have to carry the past into the new year. We can put our attention on the things that cultivate joyful, happy learning and living.

In ACIM, Jesus tells us forgiveness is the #1 tool for our awakening, for healing, for liberation. Let’s believe him. We can prove that forgiveness is liberating and then we’re modeling it for everyone.

I’m choosing liberation. How about you?

Any healing we do for ourselves, we do for everyone.

Let’s take the lead this fall and get ALL of our forgiveness done.

If you’d like to join with me, consider my Finding Freedom From Fear Spiritual Bootcamp with ACIM Principles. We begin tomorrow, Monday, October 12th and our focus is on forgiveness in order to eliminate fear and the patterns of fear.

Pulled By A Vision

Saturday, October 10th, 2020

One of the things that truly amazes me is how much I can LOVE spiritual truth and principle.  It lights me up and I never find it dull.  To me, loving spiritual principle is the same as loving Spirit.  Loving truth is loving an attribute of Spirit.  It’s like with a person, and loving the sound of their voice.  

There are so many things that we can love about this life, and I used to have a tendency to focus on what I didn’t like, rather than what I did.

It’s like learning to focus on what I’d like to have happen rather than what I wouldn’t like to have happen.  

We can have a vast improvement in our day to day experience of life when we are willing to shift where we place our attention.

We are the only ones who can shift the focus of our attention – no one can do it for us, although we can get help with it.  Making this shift requires real willingness, but it’s SO doable if we have that willingness.

The fact that it’s even possible to make this kind of change of our perspective is so exciting to me.  We can have tremendous healing very quickly with great willingness.

I feel that part of my job as a minister is to help people increase their willingness.

That’s part of what they come to me for.  And it works!  Which is such a blessing.

We can be pulled towards our spiritual awakening by the vision of the beauty of life rather than pushed by the pain of our perceptions.

Isn’t that wonderful?  We can truly change our minds and help others do the same.

Victory!

If you’re ready to shift your perspective and be pulled by the vision of God’s Love in your life then join my Spiritual Bootcamp class – Finding Freedom From Fear – we start on Monday.

TODAY:  I’m offering you this class as a gift.  My gift to you.  Come and join me. TODAY

Spirit’s Guidance Can Be Trusted

Friday, October 9th, 2020

As I write this, I just finished offering my 7 Simple Steps to Interrupt Patterns of Fear free class (I’m offering the last one tomorrow, Saturday). I feel so uplifted and grateful. When I’m sharing in this class, I’m remembering the things I went through and how I got to where I am now. What an amazing journey it has been.

One of the things I’m most grateful for in my life is something that Melissa shared in the class – she’s grateful that she has learned to pray an effective form of prayer. That the practices we do in the classes actually work.

We can prove that Spirit is at work in our lives.

I’ve been so resistant and reluctant to follow Spirit’s guidance in my life – to breakthrough to a great willingness has been extraordinary. I never thought it was possible for me – until it was.

I say, give any and all concerns you have completely over to Spirit and let Spirit do it. Take your hands off it and trust, trust, trust.

I was forced to trust or collapse and I decided to trust Spirit.

I thank GOD for that. I thank GOD for the challenges that forced me to try the path of trusting Spirit instead of trusting in my own ability to figure out how to solve the problem. Phew!

Spirit knows the mindset that created the problem cannot offer a solution.

We must trust to have a breakthrough.

If you’re ready to learn this level of trust that is so life-changing – join my Spiritual Bootcamp class – Finding Freedom From Fear – we start on Monday.

TOMORROW I’m offering you this class as a gift.  My gift to you.  Come and join me.  Tomorrow.
