Miraculous Healing Super Powers

Friday, November 13th, 2020

Anytime my identification with ego is challenged there’s an opportunity for me to have a healing and that’s what I’m interested it.

Let the challenges be gentle and let me see how helpful they are.

Right now, we all have an opportunity to contribute to world peace or to contribute to world upset. Our perspective, what we hold in our mind, and how walk in the world is affecting everyone.

When people are upset around us, we can take offense or we can answer the cry for Love.

When we extend compassion, we’re activating our miraculous healing super powers.

When we extend compassion, we’re fulfilling our purpose.

It’s not about whether people deserve our compassion.
If we don’t share the Love of Spirit, we atrophy and become malnourished.

When we can extend compassion, everyone wins.

When we cannot extend compassion, when we withhold the Love of God – we are the ones who miss out. This may be our one appointed time to be of service to a brother or a sister and we wouldn’t wish to miss it.

Life is delicate, and Love is strong.

We have super powers of miraculous healing and now is the time to use them!

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!

Great Crusade

Thursday, November 12th, 2020

This week, in Masterful Living class, I was reminded of this valuable teaching from Jesus in A Course in Miracles.

This is from the Complete and Annotated Edition of A Course in Miracles under Miracle Principle #26 (page 19):

“You now share my inability to tolerate lack of love in yourself and in everyone else, and must join the Great Crusade to correct it. The slogan for this Crusade is “Listen, learn, and do.”

This means:

Listen to my voice,
learn to undo the error, and
do something to correct it.

The first two are not enough. The real members of my party are active workers.

The power to work miracles belongs to you.

I will arrange the right opportunities for you to do them. But you must be ready and willing to do them, since you are already able to. Doing them will bring conviction in the ability.

I repeat, “You will see miracles through your hands through mine. Conviction really comes through accomplishment.

Remember that ability is the potential, achievement is its expression, and Atonement is the purpose.”

This is not the time to wait and see. Listen, learn and DO.

It’s important to take in what Jesus is telling us – the doing will bring conviction in our ability – and that’s reassuring.

Too many light workers don’t feel confident of their abilities – they don’t feel qualified to fulfill their life purpose. It’s because we’re still putting ourselves in charge, rather than Spirit.

If we’re coming from our hearts, following guidance and taking loving action without attachment we will be in service to God. And that is what qualifies us.

It’s also where our confidence comes from.

On Call for Spirit

Wednesday, November 11th, 2020

Right now, we’re “on call” for Spirit.

In the same way that a doctor might be “on call” in case of emergency, let’s be on call for Spirit.

Ready and available.

To accomplish this, let’s take extra time for self-care right now. That feels so important. I notice that many, many people in my life are going through stressful shifts and changes.

Let’s put extra attention on self-compassion and self-care so we can be available for Spirit.

Right now, people are challenged with illness, loss of life, feeling divided politically, feeling unloved and disrespected – so, one way we can be truly helpful is to make sure we’re “loved UP” all the time.

Being prayerFULL really helps too. Being prayed UP. Let’s pray before we make the phone call, get on the zoom meeting, leave the house or enter the building.

Let us be prepared to shine the Light of Love when it’s needed.

Because, it’s definitely what we’re here for – to be truly helpful – as needed.

And I’m so glad that we’re doing it together.

Extending Love

Monday, November 9th, 2020

Spirit is always leading us to a greater expression of unity, Love, connection, oneness, even when it seems like we’re being led away.

That’s pure grace, active in our lives and in our awareness.

After this intense year and a half leading up to and through the US election, one thing is abundantly clear here in the United States of America: *

We’re still divided in what we value. There’s a strong appearance of sides and opposition. With the new shifts in the balance of power in the government, I sense that Spirit is forcing us to look at the pain of acting in a divisive way. It feels to me like we’re choosing to learn what comes from making anyone the enemy or the bad guy.

It doesn’t matter if it’s the president, a senator, a governor or a caravan, when we don’t recognize our brothers and sisters are one with us, we’re going to suffer and it’s our own choice, because it’s our decision to separate that causes the pain.

There is no other. There just isn’t.

We must change our view in order to have a new experience.


That’s what the civil rights movement taught us.
And yet, here we are, learning it again.

A Course in Miracles tells us so clearly, “Seek not to change the world, but to choose to change your mind about the world.” That’s our calling. That’s our divine destiny.

Let us be about our Divine Mother Father’s business now.


Let us focus on ending separation thinking through choosing to extend Love.

Compassionate Listening

Friday, November 6th, 2020

In my Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive, one of the things I demonstrate and teach is the healing power of compassionate listening. It’s extraordinary how much can be lifted, shifted and healed when we’re willing to set all judgments aside and listen with our heart.

This is one of the most helpful skills we can have and we can develop our ability to listen with compassion to a point that is truly extraordinary.

Why?

Because this IS what we’re designed to do and how we’re meant to live.

A Course in Miracles calls it “extension.”

When we listen with true compassion, we’re extending Love which is the only true healer there is.

We are being profoundly helpful when we offer compassion to our brothers and sisters.

Being able to listen with compassion to someone we completely disagree with is a level of spiritual maturity that we can attain. We can even be at Peace listening to someone we dislike. When we’re not judging, we can be at Peace.

Being able to have the willingness to listen with compassion is a great leap forward in consciousness.

This IS how we raise ourselves up out of the muck and mire of feeling separate.

During this time of intensity in density, let’s commit to a high degree of listening with compassion so that we can truly help heal the illusion of a divide between people in this world. This is our work to do – let’s get to it!

I’m A Happy Camper

Sunday, November 3rd, 2019

These are challenging times. There’s no doubt about it. For those of us with a spiritual practice, it’s a constant call to be more dedicated and more devoted. I see that happening in our community.

I’m a happy camper today because I have so many wonderful announcements. Earlier this year we, at the Power of Love Ministry, decided to create a community newsletter and we sent the first issue yesterday. If you missed it, you can view it in your browser here: Community Newsletter.

I’ve learned that it really does take a great willingness to have an effective spiritual practice and to follow the teachings of A Course in Miracles. Fortunately, the more I practiced, the more I truly wished to be even more willing and more available to choose Love and to be truly helpful with every choice I made.

I find I am not alone in this ever-increasing willingness and joy in willingness.

In some ways, it becomes a no-brainer. I see this with folks in class with me all the time. What happens that turbocharges our willingness is we start to prove that it works. Once we can begin to see that, the changes are helpful, that the changes are desirable, that life is easier and better, then we start to actually wish to give up the past and make the changes that are EVEN MORE HELPFUL.

Remember, in ACIM, Jesus tells us that ALL are chosen. We all have a call to be truly helpful and to return home, like the Prodigal Son. And, eventually, we’ll all actually DECIDE to make that journey. We can speed it up or we can slow it down.

I’m also excited because we’re consistently doing a much better job of serving our community. In September, I held my first retreat on the topic of “Recovery from Sexual Abuse” and it was a HUGE success, in that those who attended had profound healing and they’re now offering a support group for folks in Masterful Living and Finding Freedom classes. They’re going gangbusters, and we’re looking to have another retreat as early as late January.

Those who do the deep forgiveness work, like these beautiful folks who are rising above their wounding of the past, are inspired and compelled to help others. Their Joy is infectious! Just think: they went from feeling betrayed and wounded to feeling joyous and inspired!

Forgiveness continues to be my teacher. I am consistently amazed at how profound the healing power of forgiveness is. And that’s why I’m getting ready to offer a free class on forgiveness NEXT SUNDAY, November 10, and I’m calling it Forgive Me. Here Come The Holidays! Register now and we’ll send you the details – also, please do share with friends – it’s my gift to you!

 

I feel it’s so important and helpful to do extra forgiveness clearing and healing BEFORE the holidays, so that we can end the year beautifully and feel launched into our best year ever. Please join me in this free class! I’m so inspired to do this healing work!

I’m also very inspired because I just had my Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive and my “Teacher Training” intensive – and they were both so much fun and so fulfilling. How cool is it that as people are entering our Spiritual Counseling Certification Program others are completing it?

At the Power of Love Ministry, the Spiritual Counseling Certification Program is going strong. And I’m so pleased to announce that we are certifying two new counselors. Woo hoo!

I’d like to introduce you to Phil Rego, who has been participating in the ministry for a number of years now. I’ve watched her shift and transform her life and her thinking and expand her coaching business. Phil is an inspiring counselor who is doing beautiful work

I love to help people discover who they truly are and to live with a sense of joy and wonder as they claim the future they want for themselves. After nearly two decades of helping people deal with difficulty as a social worker, I became a leadership coach who helps people transform themselves and their lives. Our journey is to find our source of light and illuminate ourselves, our greatness, and our unique calling. In studying with Jennifer it became clear to me that love is a healer and we must love ourselves first. With that, I focus on helping people discover and love who they truly are. When we tune in and turn up the divine light shining deep within us, we release our hurts, troubles, doubts, and fears. I would love the opportunity to help you uncover and shine your light. Please contact Phil at: philorego@hotmail.com

 

I’d also like to introduce you to Rieko Yamanaka who has been in our Masterful Living community for three years, and for several years has been a Facilitator for our Mastery Circle program, as well as facilitating small groups in the Finding Freedom From Fear program. She is a much loved and valued member of our community. She’s taking a break from counseling right now.

My goal is that all the graduates of our program will feel confident and qualified to do the work that they LOVE. And they do!

In order to be certified, these powerful Spiritual Counselors have had to do at least 111 practice sessions with evaluations and they’ve done far more than that. Plus, they have a substantial list of other requirements that have brought them to a place of great willingness and great knowing of Spirit. They are experienced. I invite you to consider working with Phil if you’d like to deepen your spiritual practice of truly living A Course in Miracles.

Working with a Spiritual Counselor who was trained to see the ego’s mental and emotional patterns that were running my life helped me to be able to dissolve and resolve those patterns. I could not have done it on my own.

For me, my belief that I had a deep-seated, fundamental wrongness and badness was so strong, and had been affirmed so often, that I really needed someone who could sit with me and say “It ain’t so. False. Not true. Never will be true. It cannot be true. You are perfect Love and you have forgotten it. You’ve hidden it. You aren’t aware of it, but even so, that is what is actually true.”

The truth IS that we are ALL fundamentally good – even if we’ve never demonstrated it. And because THAT is the TRUTH, one person holding and knowing the truth with you and for you is more powerful than a lifetime of believing a lie. That’s how powerful truth is.

Love is truth.

Love knows no opposition, because any appearance of opposition is false. It ain’t so.

I began to find out just how powerful this is when I became a spiritual counselor as a licensed Prayer Practitioner in the Agape community in Los Angeles. I was so committed to helping my clients see the truth that I was seeing. It was an honor and a privilege to hold the truth and know it with them and for them.

And that’s why I began to train Spiritual Counselors for certification. I have an aspiration to support people who would like to have a profession in spirituality as counselors, teachers, and Prayer Practitioners as well as ministers.

Congratulations to Phil & Rieko! Let’s give them some applause!

 

If you think you might be interested in learning more about spiritual counseling and our program at Power of Love Ministry, you can reply to this e-mail and we’ll set up a time for one of the counselors to answer your questions.  You can also email us at admin@jenniferhadley.com 

I encourage you to consider work with one of the Spiritual Counselors who I’ve certified, or one that’s still in training, and see if they can support your journey.  They ALL have had amazing relationship healing with their families.  Click here to see the list of Spiritual Counselors.  

Folks who have been therapists, doctors, teachers, coaches, ministers, dads, moms, and grandparents for decades have all found that it was very helpful to them in all kinds of ways, professionally and personally.

Every day I offer “My Shot of Spiritual Espresso”.  I write spiritual inspiration and record a prayer for our healing.  Prayer is a power tool for our liberation.  We use technology to transcend time and space, and deepen our spiritual practice and connect with each other.  Our spiritual practice is our path of liberation, and that’s beautiful to share! It takes a village to raise anyone.  And certainly, it takes a village to raise this minister. I Love you and I thank God for you.  We bless each other with our willingness to rise in Spirit and come back into our right minds.  

Together we truly are answering our call to BE the Love.  YES!

Blessed Always

Monday, October 14th, 2019

We can see that things are very intense in the world right now. There are outbursts all over the places of all kinds. And this IS the time that we’ve been preparing for. We are here to be truly helpful.

Things have been challenging and confrontational for the past year, on many levels, and it seems to be intensifying. This is why it’s so important for us to keep Peace in our minds and hold a higher view, a divine vision of Peace & Harmony.

Right now, I’m leading the Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive and we’re doing extra spiritual practice, lots of prayer and lots of healing work. People are noticing the difference even though there are also big challenges occurring. One of our beloved classmates suddenly passed away. One person has had the fires near their home while they’ve been gone. And there are always other challenges.

Yet, we notice that we are more peaceful.
We are harmonious.

Healing is happening.

For many years I’ve trained myself not to worry. Worry is the negative use of my imagination. My mind is the mind of God and if I hold a worried, fearful and negative thought in my mind, I’m giving it my power and I don’t wish to do that anymore. I choose to hold the highest and best for all with my loving thoughts.

I know that all who are affected by these multiple challenges, all over the world, are blessed by their experiences. I hold firmly in my mind that all are blessed.

I may not understand how everything works together for the good of all, many times it seems impossible to understand from our point of view, unable to see through all of time and space.

I do know divine grace is at work in all moments.

I absolutely know that the angels guide and protect us all of the time and when we ask for assistance we receive it, although it may not be in the way we think is best.

I have faith that we are profoundly loved by all of life, even by a hurricane, a flood, a fire or an earthquake. I open my mind to see beyond time and space and to see the blessings in each moment.

I once was very blessed, for a precious few minutes, to have the great gift of seeing beyond time and space into the eternal.

In those minutes I knew completely and most assuredly that everything is perfect, and everything is beautiful and all is Love, all are loved. It was so clear to me and so real to me it changed me. It only lasted for a few minutes, but it was crystal clear.

We’re training our minds only to choose loving thoughts and to let all worry go. We’re doing it. It’s happening now.

We bless all beings on this sweet earth and know that all are loved equally and fully by our Creator. Life loves us. We keep our attention on that which we desire to know and to see and we let all worry fade into the nothingness from which it arose.

We hold the high watch. We pray for those who appear to be in harm’s way to be protected and blessed. We pray for those who are suffering to be at Peace now. We hold the perfect vision of Love in our hearts and in our minds.

We know that all are blessed, always.

My Own Worst Enemy

Sunday, October 13th, 2019

I can see now how often I made my life hard, difficult, painful, and uncomfortable. I did it to myself, but I thought other people were doing it to me. I thought it was life happening to me.

One of the main ways that I made myself uncomfortable was that I would try to plan how I thought my life and my day should go. Planning gives the ego a sense of security. Making plans and feeling that we have to stick to them is how we separate ourselves from the flow of Love. It’s the opposite of trust and faith.

Now, most of us would say planning is essential for our lives — for having jobs, for going on vacation, for attending school, etc. However, I had A LOT of pain and suffering because I would become so attached to the plans I made. If I didn’t follow the plans I made, I would start to feel anxious and upset. If someone interrupted my plans or thwarted my plans, I would become agitated and angry.

For the ego, a change in plans is a loss. It’s a cause for fear, anger, upset, and worry.

A Course in Miracles tells us that “A healed mind does not plan.

When we first look at that, most of us think – “How can that possibly work? If I don’t plan, how do I live my life?”

To look at it more clearly, we could say “A healed mind does not feel obsessed with sticking to the plan.”

A healed mind has no attachment to the plan and can go with the flow of Love!

Obviously, as someone who is leading a ministry, offering year-long classes, planning global summits and retreats, I make A LOT of plans! What I’ve learned is that my Peace is in going with the flow of Love when things are shifting and changing, as they often are.

I’m in the Catskills area right now, leading my Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive. The other night, I went to bed with a particular plan for my morning the next day. In the morning, things changed and it was clear there was a different flow for me that would feel more supportive to what I was doing that day. It was a change of plan.

Years ago, I would have been angry and upset if I had changed my plans. I would have felt I’d failed because I failed to keep my plan.

When I was younger, I was very rigid with myself. I realized that I had an “inner Nazi” who was always driving me to be “better” and be “more productive.”

I was my own worst enemy. Beating myself up for my errors.

It took me a VERY long time to realize that the only thing that is truly productive is to be loving. Being loving is the only meaningful accomplishment.

Being loving is the only thing that’s truly helpful.

Why? Because whenever we’re being loving, then we’re being a healing presence in our lives and it ripples out to everyone.

My fear of not sticking to the plan and of non-accomplishment was really about my not feeling worthy of Love. I used to believe that my accomplishments and my rigid adherence to my plans would somehow prove that I was good enough and worthy of my own “seal of approval.”

Of course, the approval was only momentary and not permanent.

Love is permanent. Love is eternal and echoes throughout the universe.

Ego accomplishment is actually nothing in the view of the Spirit.

I finally realized that, while I believed I was upset because I wasn’t sticking to the ego’s plan for my day and for getting approval, I was ACTUALLY upset because I was allowing myself to believe that accomplishment was something that could improve my stature in the “Eyes of God.”

A Course in Miracles tells us, “I’m never upset for the reason I think.

When I’m upset, it’s always because I’m choosing to believe an opinion that isn’t true. Believing that I have to earn approval from God or from the ego will always bring upset.

Love is our healer because Love is our true identity.
Love is our DEFAULT SETTING.

Love doesn’t judge and Love doesn’t need approval. Only the ego judges and the ego doesn’t stop judging. It’s always offering the “carrot” of approval, the enticement of “being good enough,” but it dissolves like a mirage the moment we think we’re there. Tricky ego.

I’m so grateful to know that a major key to Peace is not being attached to plans. I AM learning to live in the flow of Love and, for me, that is the place of great safety and security. I love it and am grateful for this learning.

This awareness of non-attachment to plans is one of the most helpful and loving practices I’ve ever found. It blesses me every day, and it makes life so much easier for everyone I come in contact with because I’m not involving them in my upset.

Because of this simple practice of awareness of non-attachment, we can experience much greater Love in our lives and that’s healing so many other false beliefs and patterns of separation. We can live joy-FULLY.
Ka-ching!

The healing ripples out through all of our relationships and I AM grateful to live in gratitude for our ever-increasing awareness! WOO HOO!

We are so blessed at every moment. Daily, I ask the angels to surround and enfold me and help me to recognize my healing opportunities to release attachments and be a truly helpful and loving presence. Daily, I AM lifted into the Light and Love that I most deeply desire to know and share.

Blessings abound!

LAST CALL till next spring: If you’d like to do this work in a class with me, my Finding Freedom class just started and if you’d like to jump in, jump NOW. This is the perfect time for us to do this relationship healing work as the holidays are approaching. We can make such a difference in our own life and in our family. I see it every year at this time, since 2008 when I first started offering this class.

Every day I offer “My Shot of Spiritual Espresso.” I write spiritual inspiration and record a prayer for our healing. Prayer is a power tool for our liberation. We use technology to transcend time and space and deepen our spiritual practice and connect with each other. Our spiritual practice is our path of liberation, and that’s beautiful to share!

We’re all on a journey of expanding awareness, and there’s so much help for us in the invisible. We’re never alone. I Love you and I thank God for you. We bless each other with our willingness to rise in Spirit and come back into our right minds. Together we’re answering our call to BE the Love. YES!

Liberation from Limiting Thoughts

Saturday, October 12th, 2019

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.”

I refuse to agree to false constructs that are limiting.
I am unlimited and I AM that I AM.
I AM one with THE One.

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.

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

Spiritual Career

Monday, February 18th, 2019

In Masterful Living class this week I was sharing about the prayer I began praying back in the mid 90’s. I started to pray every day that my life would inspire people to get up out of the Lazy Boy Recliner, turn off the television and taking loving action in their lives. I would see in my mind’s eye and feel in my heart the effect of more and more people being loving in their relationships, in their community and all over the world.

I had no idea how it would manifest or what it would mean for me personally, but I knew with my whole heart that I wished to be able to inspire people to be more loving. I, myself, deeply desired to be more loving. I was actively working on opening my heart every day. Soon after that I began taking classes at the Agape International Center and then entered into the Prayer Practitioner training to be come a licensed spiritual counselor and then from there I went into ministerial school. It was nine years of classes by the time I graduated in 2006.

When I graduated from Prayer Practitioner training there really wasn’t any substantial professional support for me to begin my own practice or for clients to find me. When I graduated from ministerial school there was also no support for me to step into ministry. This actually worked out really well for me because it forced me to find my own way.

Finding my own way felt very difficult in the beginning, but the more I became dedicated and devoted to simply being loving, the more I was led and guided to what has become the Power of Love Ministry.

Part of what made it so difficult was that I had to everything. I didn’t have the money to hire someone to help me. At the beginning of this new career as a spiritual professional, I was working at other things in order to pay my bills and I couldn’t even begin to support myself with counseling and teaching.

I used to take all kinds of classes in marketing and try to learn as much as I could about how to get the word out about what I was doing. No matter how much I did, I felt like I wasn’t doing enough and I should be doing more. That didn’t change until I reached a point I call “the tipping point”.

When I got to my tipping point, my thoughts were more loving than unloving, and that’s when my life really began to shift and become much easier. AND, right before the tipping point, it was definitely VERY challenging. It felt like almost everything was becoming difficult. I was pushed to my limits, fortunately, and I FINALLY moved into surrender.

In starting the Power of Love Ministry, I basically had to do everything for myself. There was no one to really help me. I couldn’t afford to pay anyone. Fortunately, my father gifted me with a small amount of money to get some help learning about marketing so I could let people know about what I was doing with my classes and counseling. Just my dad’s loving support made a HUGE difference for me.

In 2014 I started training spiritual counselors, and my goal shifted slightly – I saw the opportunity to not just offer people professional training, but also to give them support to launch their business, increase their practice and even offer them jobs doing what they love.

Now we’re developing training programs for teachers, ministers and prayer practitioners. Folks who have been developing their skills in our classes are getting ready to teach their own classes and I’m more excited about that than teaching my own classes! Having been in class with folks for years, I’m very aware of how talented they are and how much they have to offer.

I’ve had to invest SO MUCH of my time and energy into administration, to create the platform to be able to support the teachers who are coming out to share their gifts now. I’m able to offer them what I didn’t have – the opportunity to focus on teaching and counseling instead of on the administrative side.

There are SO MANY wonderful people involved in this Power of Love Ministry, in our Masterful Living Community who are stepping up and learning facilitation, counseling, teaching and stepping into these leadership roles. It’s time for the light workers to rise and shine and they’re doing it! Together, we’re doing it.

Soon we’ll be offering a community newsletter so more people can know about the beautiful and miraculous transformation that so many are going through as they apply these beautiful principles in A Course in Miracles.

The other day I was having a video chat with my good friend, Lisa Natoli, and we were talking about everything from dying our hair, to my new home search, our upcoming Spring Clearing Healing Retreat (along with Jon Mundy & Corinne Zupko) and our ministries and classes. It was a typical feminine conversation all over the place, winding and circling around the depth and breadth of our lives, but not TOO deep because we only had an hour! LOL – we can talk for the whole day if given the chance, we enjoy each other’s company so much.

Lisa said that I needed to promote the professional development programs that we’re offering at the Power of Love Ministry and let more people know about them. I promise to do better with that. Especially, because now I’m so happy to be supporting people in leading my Forgive & Be Free Workshop. Forgiveness really is the way out of our suffering and it is SO fulfilling to help people figure that out and apply it in their lives. I’d like to be able train thousands of people to teach what true forgiveness is. I know we can do it!

We can create trainings and workshops that go into schools, corporations and communities as well as churches. Just imagine if we’d all been taught how to practice forgiveness when we were 6 or 7 years old, with a bit more training each year in school we’d have completely different lives. I know we can implement this if we’re willing – Spirit will provide the roadmap.

For years, when I shared my goals, people would say to me, “how’re you ever going to do that?” I’d say “I don’t know. That part hasn’t been given to me yet.” Spirit leads, we follow. That’s the way we do it. There is a roadmap and there’s a path that’s being laid out. Our willingness is all that’s required.

Right now, Finding Freedom from Fear and Masterful Living are the two foundations of the professional trainings we’re offering and there are additional modules as well. One of those additional modules is the Leading & Creating A Workshop training Jon Mundy and I are offering next month. The one we did last year was SO powerful, and I’m excited to go even deeper next month. (BTW, this program will not be offered again until sometime in 2020.)

If you have any interest at all in these programs – take my 1 minute survey to let me know so I can share more with you. Click here now to respond to this survey.

No matter where we are in our lives, no matter what we’re interested in, we can let Spirit be our guide. Our path is a path of Love, our journey is one of awakening to Love’s eternal presence. We cannot fail.

Early bird special on NOW  Spring Clearing Retreat March 20 to 24 – with Lisa Natoli, Corinne Zupko, Jon Mundy, myself and more!  Plus, Jon Mundy and I are offering our Leading & Creating A Workshop training which includes certification to lead my Forgive & Be Free Workshop!  March 14 to 20.

Spiritual Counseling

Wednesday, April 11th, 2018

People often ask me, what is the difference between a Spiritual Counselor and a traditional therapist? A psychologist is sometimes more focused on how did you get where you are then how you’d really like to experience your life now.

As a spiritual counselor I’m focused on where do you want to go and who do you need to BE to get there. Understanding exactly how I arrived where I am, while often interesting and also useful, is not necessary to healing.

As a spiritual counselor, I know that the past can be healed in a nanosecond. As Ernest Holmes taught, healing doesn’t take time. “The only time it takes to have a healing is the time it takes to have a realization.”

Love is the healer.

Love does all the work.

Our nature is Love.

To have a healing, let Love rule your heart.

A Spiritual Counselor offers counseling/therapy sessions similar to a traditional therapist. In the session, we work with you to set a strong intention for healing, expansion and clarity in order for the release of limiting beliefs and painful experiences. Rather than focusing on the past and how you got to the present moment, we support you in being clear about where you’d like to go and how you will get there. In keeping our attention on the healing and changes that you desire for your life, relationships, body, finances, creativity, career and more, we are able to support you in identifying the root causes of the things you’d like to change in your life. By focusing on healing the root cause of all issues, and discovering what’s needed emotionally and mentally for you to live the life you desire, we bring transformation, and relief – often with what can sometimes feel like miraculous results.

  • We believe you can live the life you desire, even if you do not.
  • We believe you can live a truly miraculous life.
  • Together, we are the two or more who are gathered in the name and nature of Love.
  • Love is our true nature, and Love heals all wounds.
  • We are here to show you how to heal the past and live a life of Love now.
  • It’s our strong intention to aid you in having a healing so pervasive that you never experience the issues again.

When your strong intention to transform and transcend limiting beliefs joins with our strong intention for deep healing, we are in the place where transmutation and miracles happen!

Our work is transdenominational, and is beyond the realm of religion. All faiths are welcomed.
I’ve trained my mind to be able to know the Truth for the person I’m counseling and that’s what it means when people talk about “holding the space.” It’s holding the space of Love so that anything unlike Love can fall away. All shadows disappear in the light.

Our minds have been trained to hold judgments and opinions. I’ve learned to think of those thoughts as trash and clutter. In learning to hold my mind free of the false, I’m cultivating a pristine awareness of Truth. This is the most important aspiration I have. This is what allows me to be a beneficial presence. And, wonderfully, it is also my personal path of healing.

As a spiritual counselor, I’ve learned that I can be tremendously and truly helpful to my clients in supporting them in having a healing revelation. This is my joy. All boats rise on this tide of Love!

My Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive is not just a professional training, if you read the things people have said about how their lives change as a result, you will see that this is an opportunity for deep personal healing. You can combine the Stop Playing Small Retreat with the Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive and get a discount! Plus we have payment plans and early bird special is on now!

Real change, lasting transformation and healing is available. If you’re willing, let’s do it together!
Changing our lives and healing our minds is so much easier when we are the two or more gathered together for the same purpose. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of April.

I haven’t offered a Stop Playing Small Retreat in for a couple of years, so if this interests you, please join! We practice and learn Self-Love in Spiritual Community and it’s a powerful healing and life-changing experience. We can accomplish a lot in a short time when we come together focused on transformation!

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

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

Having A Successful Spiritual Career

Saturday, October 29th, 2016

Over the years I’ve met many amazing and beautiful people who absolutely love spirituality. It’s thrilling to them. I feel the same way! I absolutely LOVE spiritual principle and I Love being able to connect with like-minded souls and share what we’re learning.

Many of the folks I meet would like to be able to have a spiritual career, share what they’re learning with others and make that their career. That’s what I did and I feel so blessed every day that I get to do what I LOVE every day.

I also have met a number of people who don’t have the confidence to follow their heart. They study and study and study and study and prepare to have a spiritual career, but then they don’t seem to get off the ground with it.

I remember when I first started ministerial school, they told us that the statistics were that only a few of us would actually end up having a career as a minister and most would not.

I’ve known a number of people who never really had the confidence to succeed although they had the talent and the training. Their lack of confidence was what prevented them from living their dream.

I’d like to do everything I can to keep that from happening. For those who would like to follow their heart and have a successful spiritual career, I’d like to support them in truly going all the way. And that’s why I’m offering this free class today on having a Spiritual Career.

I know that the the Love of God can never fail. Light always wins. I also know that there are several keys to being able to be successful and not give up. I’m going to talk about this in my class today. I encourage you to come to the class and be prepared to bring on a breakthrough!

Right now, light workers are being called to step up and do what they’re designed to do – share the light! Let’s do it together!

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

Keep Your Mind Open

Monday, July 18th, 2016

About 5 or 6 years ago, when I was camping in Vermont at the Sunray.org Peace Village after having attended the summer seminar with my teacher, Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo, it was getting close to the time when I would be returning to Los Angeles after three weeks of being in the woods surrounded by the Green Mountains. As I was driving from the little town of Bristol and heading back to my campsite, driving past the waterfall that I’m sharing a photo of today, I started to cry because I didn’t want to go back to Los Angeles and be in the city. I yearned to stay in the woods, in the mountains, by the river.

I burst into tears as I drove along. “I don’t want to go back to the city!”

The thought of being in the concrete jungle felt so hard to me and I was weary from it. I had a longing to be with the trees. My Higher Holy Spirit Self communicated very clearly to me:

“Your work in Los Angeles isn’t done. You really do wish to bring that to completion, so you actually do want to go back to L.A. You can bring the energy of the trees, mountains, rivers and waterfalls with you to the city.”

I knew right away that was true. I could invoke that energy of nature while I was in the city. I did, and it changed my feeling about being there. Then, after about 2 more years, I knew it was ok for me to go and I did.

For me, willingness to choose the highest and best is the main thing. If you don’t like where you are and you’d rather be somewhere else, tune in. Maybe there’s something for you to complete where you are. Maybe there’s something that’s holding you there that’s yet to come. Sometimes we just don’t know.

When we’re willing to truly be of service, to choose the highest and best, then there will be little question of what the right thing to do is. For me, it was best for me to stay in the city until I was complete and then when it was time to leave I knew it unquestionably. I was so glad I didn’t leave prematurely – I’m sure that had I tried to do that, it would have been difficult, if not impossible.

We can learn to feel when things are for the highest and best. This is a skill for us to remember and all that it requires is our willingness. When we’re able to recognize that the highest and best is always going to be the highest and best for all because we’re one with each other, making the choice gets much easier.

Is there anyplace in your life where you’re trying to force things? Be willing to step back and be divinely guided. It will come if you’re truly interested in being truly helpful.

TOMORROW: We begin – 11 classes in 12 days – all free! Living the Miracle – Being Truly Helpful is the theme of our Living A Course in Miracles series that begins TOMORROW Tuesday, July 19th. Register now and receive all the audios, downloads, transcripts – the whole thing at zero cost. That’s right – it’s all my gift to you! Click here now to register!
