Self-Love

Sunday, March 17th, 2019

One of the great temptations of many spiritual students is to be alone with Spirit. In my experience, most of us, once we have begun to clear enough of the clutter in our heart, we yearn for more of that time alone in the secret place of the Most High. We yearn for communion.

Once we actively let go of the mountains of self-judgment through an active practice of self-forgiveness, we then have a capacity to be alone with Spirit. And that’s a very wonderful and nurturing practice. It’s deeply healing.

Sometimes, though, we can be hiding from people because being with people is so challenging. I can see in my own journey that it looks as though it’s been a process, although I’m certain that healing is not a process. Awakening is not a process. I can see now that healing is a decision.

Here are some of the major steps in my experience of healing and awakening to truth:

Step #1 – I made a decision to Love myself.
This was a true commitment that I actively practiced.
That decision started the ball rolling.

Next, began to take spiritual classes that taught me to pay and have active prayer partnerships.

Next, I decided to give up my judgments and opinions about everything and look for the truth. I made a commitment to off-load all the judgments and live without them.

Next, I furthered this commitment by deciding to forgive everything in my past, from this life or any other, whether I could remember it or not.

I did all of this so that I could focus on being loving in the present moment, in the NOW, where the Love actually is.

Along the way, I naturally stopped thinking about the past.
I stopped fantasizing.
I started thinking of myself as a servant in service to Love and Light.
I started to spend a lot more time in spiritual connection and community with others.

Along the way, I naturally stopped thinking about the past, because to judge is to be reliving the past. The more I give up judgment, the less I think about the past.

I stopped fantasizing. I realized that fantasy is like a drug to escape the present moment. When I’m not awake and aware in the present moment, then I cannot experience Love. I’m preventing myself from being healed when I fantasize, because Love is the healer and there’s no Love present in fantasy – not even in Love fantasies.

I started thinking of myself as a servant in service to Love and Light. I started to ask how I could be of higher service. I started to look for service opportunities – not to GET Love, but to share it.

I started to spend a lot more time in spiritual connection and community with others. More Prayer Partners. More spiritual connection with people who were like-minded.

In relationships, there’s so much learning.
Our relationships demand that we look at the effects of our thoughts, choices and actions. Relationships are the mirror that reflects back to us, continually.

I realized that when the mirror is reflecting back our self-attack and self-judgment, of course we want to run from the mirror.

I began to see that when other people are triggering me, and I think it’s because of their energy that I’m being brought low, I can realize that it’s not even possible.

Other people’s negativity doesn’t bring me down when I’m here to Love and teach only Love. In that case, their cry for Love lifts me up, because I can respond with Love.

Other people’s negativity only bothers me when I judge them for it. I had to learn how to discard my own negativity in order to be helpful. And that is how I proved that I will be healed as I let Spirit teach me to heal.

Through choosing to trust, I have proved that I don’t have to wonder worry what to say, where to go or what to do, because Spirit will direct and guide me.

I have discovered Peace through learning to live the teaching in what I call the My Purpose Prayer from A Course in Miracles:

I am here only to be truly helpful.

I am here to represent Him Who sent me.

I do not have to worry about what to say or what to do,

because He Who sent me will direct me.

I am content to be wherever He wishes,

knowing He goes there with me.

I will be healed as I let Him teach me to heal.

It’s challenging to believe that the life we’d really like to live can come from living this way, but it does. I see it over and over again with people in our classes.

I recognize that it’s challenging to believe that actually doing the work will bring the results that we’d like. That’s not the teaching of the world.

The teaching of the world is opposite to the teaching of Spirit. The world teaches us to look outside for the Kingdom, and Spirit tells us to look within.

ACIM tells us we’re afraid to look within because we judge ourselves as bad and unworthy.

It’s really way past time for us to still be hesitating to be the Light of the world because we don’t feel worthy. When we’re willing to be with others without judgment, we can easily see that all are worthy. It’s only our belief that some are not that keeps us from realizing that we, too, are worthy.

Gathering together with others is what my focus is. That’s why I don’t really do a lot of lecturing – I’d much rather be with others. That’s why I offer my weekly Sacred Circle, the Finding Freedom Boot Camp, Masterful Living yearlong course – all ways for us to gather together.

It’s why I stopped teaching my forgiveness workshop in person and started doing it online. It’s why I prefer to do retreats and trainings, rather than conferences.

I like to get into the work and do it together for maximum healing. In the Power of Love Ministry, we’re moving toward hosting more and more gatherings online, and maybe in person, offering opportunities for us to heal together.

One of the things that is the most wonderful for me is when I do retreats. There are always people who come up to me on the breaks and have so much excitement and tears of gratitude who tell me that they had long believed that “I was the only one.” There’s so much healing we can have when we join together.

I’d like to encourage you to find ways to join together and do the work with others as much as you can. Yes, you’ll have to get out of your comfort zone sometimes, and you’ll have to confront your own judgments – but is there really ANY comfort zone when we’re identified with the ego, with feeling bad and wrong?

In my experience, it’s much easier to look at what we perceive as darkness when we can go together and hold each others’ hands.

Linda Soto, one of our Spiritual Counselors, shared this wonderful quote with me in a conversation we were having about this the other day:

“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.”  ~Joseph Campbell

Our hearts are the cave we fear to enter, because we’ve stored so much regret, resentment, judgment, blame and shame in there. When I made the decision to learn to Love myself, I made a decision to enter that cave. I wish I could have had you with me then. We could have gone together – and that is why I now am such a fan of doing this really deep work – the work we resist, and put off, and fear – together. It’s just easier together. And, more fun.

“Yet you cannot make yourself unworthy because you are the treasure of God…” A Course in Miracles

Our Higher Holy Spirit Self will clear out the cave, if we are willing. We must be willing, and that means actually calling it forth, allowing it to happen. We must get out of the way and really say YES.

Today is the perfect day to say,m “Yes!” Let’s do it together!

Happy Helper

Saturday, March 16th, 2019

In this world, even though we’re all one with each other and part of the same dynamic Love Intelligence, we still can’t make anyone happy – not really. Others cannot make us happy, either – although we often feel convinced that they can.

It’s very easy to get deluded into thinking someone or something outside of ourselves can make us happy, but happiness doesn’t really come until we give up that concept.

Nonetheless, we can SHARE happiness. Throughout our day we have the opportunity to be loving and supportive to others, and we can take the opportunity, out of the generosity and givingness of our heart and make the most of it. When we share happiness, it makes our own heart even lighter.

If we’re open to it and ask the Higher Holy Spirit Self, we’ll be guided to the ways we can share that will actually be helpful. I find that the very best ideas that come to me are always just that – ideas that come to me.

I recognize the difference between ideas that I have and ideas that are given to me by the Higher Holy Spirit Self. They have very different energetics. Learning to recognize the difference is quite helpful. It’s as if the Higher Mind’s ideas are more clean, clear, shiny and sparkly.

I like to ask for ideas of how to be helpful, rather than just figure them out. Whenever I ask for guidance, the quality of the idea is so much more enjoyable than the one I figured out.

Being willing and available to share happiness can be like a spiritual hobby. It’s a kind of spiritual gardening. In our spiritual garden we can pull the weeds and plant seeds of happiness.

It’s really very rewarding to plant seeds of future happiness for people without even letting them know what we’re doing or what we’ve done.

This is how Spirit operates – always planting seeds for our happiness.

And this is precisely why judging things as “not good” does not lead to happiness. The seeds have been planted, and the time for harvest is always now.

One of the primary ways to harvest is to share with others. As A Course in Miracles tells us: To have, give all to all.

To have Love, share Love.
To have happiness, share happiness.

Let’s put Spirit in charge and look for more ways to be generous of heart, and share our happiness to increase it.

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

Truth

Friday, March 1st, 2019

If we study a spiritual teaching and learn everything about it to the point where we can teach it but we don’t fully live it, then we’re fooling ourselves. We don’t really know it if we’re not living it..

For years, that was me. I thought I knew the teachings because I knew the concepts and the words.

This is the error that many spiritual students like me, and even spiritual teachers, make: they believe an intellectual knowledge is the same thing as a spiritual knowing, and nothing could be further from the Truth.

No one who really knows the Truth would fail to live it.

For years, I had an intellectual understanding of the Law of Cause & Effect. I understood that my thoughts were made manifest in form. I thought I understood that form is my experience, my feelings, and my life. And yet, I still gave myself permission to pour my precious attention into energizing thoughts and beliefs that I ABSOLUTELY did NOT want to see made manifest. I still gave myself permission to think these thoughts, invest in them and share them with others. My tragic mistake was that I put more attention on trying to change the world than to change my thinking.

How could I give myself permission to energize negativity and then blame others for those results showing up in my life, in my emotions, and in my experience unless I didn’t really believe the Law of Cause & Effect?

Knowing a spiritual teaching intellectually, without living it, is like saying “I know how to put a man on the moon because I read about it in a book.”

Living a spiritual teaching and truly embodying it is landing your rocket on the moon and being able to show others how to do it, too. That’s how big the difference is!

The biggest error most spiritual students make is, they settle for a postcard of the moon when they can live the adventure themselves! I can’t settle for a picture of Peace. I AM willing to know, embody and live the Truth that sets me FREE! I AM willing to BE the Peace I’d like to see in the world – now!

I’m so interested in discovering the Kingdom within and living fully from that awareness of my true identity. I’m so glad we get to do this together!

One With the One

Wednesday, February 27th, 2019

I’m in a co-creative relationship with Spirit and that’s a beautiful and powerful thing. It’s essential to my happiness and fulfillment that I am fully IN this relationship with the Divine. There was a time when I was not committed to the relationship, not by a long shot. I was playing a game of “hard to get” with God. I was keeping score in the most demented way.

There’s an old paradigm of thought about making deals with God. In that game, God is the sometimes loving, sometimes punishing parent. The relationship is co-dependent. “I’ll do this, if God does that.” And “I’m a lowly sinner, but as long as I grovel and repent, Daddy loves me.” There is no partnership, no co-creativity. It is the original dysfunctional family!

It’s my intention to help dissolve that old paradigm through awakening to my Divinity. My Divine essence isn’t something to be experienced someday in the future – when I give up my ways as a sinner and get to Heaven, it’s here NOW – and forever. I AM the One who decides to see it, know it, live in it and share the benefit with all beings because I AM One with them. Right now, I have a response-ability to expand MY awareness to live in this fundamental Truth: I AM One with God, eternal and infinite.

“Your holiness is the salvation of the world.  It lets you teach the world that it is one with you … by your quiet recognition that in your holiness are all things blessed along with you.  ~ A Course In Miracles

I AM responsible for my thoughts in the same way that I AM responsible for keeping my home clean and clear of clutter. I can see that I actually choose each and every one of my thoughts – over and over again.

My thoughts manifest as the circumstances of my life – not to punish me, not to reward me, but to teach me because that’s how I learn and grow to know that I AM One with the Beloved now and forever.

I AM is the Resurrection and the Life of the gifts of my Divinity. I am eternally One with the One!

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.

Courage to Follow My Passion

Thursday, July 19th, 2018

I am forever grateful that I’ve followed my intuition. Many times along this path of teaching and ministry I’ve been prompted by Spirit to do things I didn’t feel like doing. My personality didn’t want to teach a year-long course. It felt like too big a commitment. It felt binding and uncomfortable.

At the time I got the intuitive insight from Spirit to offer my year-long Masterful Living Course, I immediately thought, “Ugh. I don’t want to commit to that.” I could imagine that there would be times when I just didn’t feel like teaching, but I’d have to. Like it or not.

Now, 10 years later, we have 4 different levels of Masterful Living. I’m committed to teaching hundreds of classes each year, plus my radio show, and more. I am so grateful to live my passion and share it with you and others. It’s quite a blessing.

I remember how blocked, resistant and reluctant I used to feel, and I’m so glad that’s not how I feel now. That was painful. I kept thinking things would have to change in the world before I could actually be a full time teacher and minister.

It was so challenging for me to make the shift into my life as a professional minister and teacher and that’s precisely why I LOVE to support others as much as I can. If you feel called to participate in this ministry on a level of teaching and ministering and think you might be interested in our developing Teacher & Minister Program, please check out my Q&A today. I ask you to please register, even though there’s no charge, it’s an open Q&A – please bring your questions. If you register, I’ll send you the links to download the replay!

Q&A Today – If you have any interest at all in teaching, sharing, ministering or being a prayer practitioner, consider joining me TODAY for the Q&A about the Teacher & Minister Program.

I’m excited that Spirit has us working on a Teacher & Minister Training Program at the Power of Love Ministry. We’re still working out the program details, but I’ll be doing a Q&A about the program TODAY!

Miracle Supper

Saturday, July 14th, 2018

I had a cool miracle demonstration for my supper last night.

I’m in Vermont now for the next few weeks, camping in the Green Mountains at the Sunray Peace Village. One thing I appreciate about this life is the constant opportunity to be of service no matter where I am. Everywhere we go we can meet new people and be a loving presence in their life. We can BE their miracle!

Being open minded to the opportunities to be simply share a smile, or extend a hand is being open to the flow of Love. It can be a miracle just to receive a gift.

Yesterday I had in my mind to have some salmon for dinner. I had it in mind all day. I had meant to go to the store to get some to bring back and cook. I ended up having some long meetings and didn’t get to the store. So, I was actually standing in the community kitchen at the Peace Village thinking about my other food choices when Kathy, whom I hardly know, came in and started cooking and asked me if I’d like to share some salmon. Amazing!

This is instant manifestation. An hour before that, I had extended kindness and generosity to someone because Spirit invited me to. And Spirit took care of my wish for salmon.

I wished for salmon and I got salmon.
I mean, think about it.
That’s really super specific.
And I’m in a campground, 15 minutes drive to the store.
I barely know this woman who offered me the salmon.

And I felt very happy to receive God’s gift to me.

How do you broadcast miracles? Well, it’s not that different from broadcasting anger or upset. What I do is I begin to think and feel aligned with being loving. Then I see it in my mind’s eye rippling out, like the ripples on a pond, spreading out to touch everyone around me.

When you see someone whose upset, instead of judging them or feeling sorry for them, ask the angels to help them and ripple the Love out to surround them. You’re one with them, so you’re helping yourself!

We’re never just victims of circumstance. We can always take that feeling of being put upon, burdened or threatened and turn it around to a way of being of service. When we do that, everyone feels better! Now, that’s being truly helpful. Victory!

Jon Mundy – Practicing the Principles

Tuesday, May 1st, 2018

When I first started offering the Living A Course in Miracles classes I got so many emails from people who told me they had been studying ACIM for years, MANY years and they had never thought to live the teachings the way I was sharing about it. This surprised me so much!

For me, the healing has come from truly living ACIM principles and that’s one of the things I have in common with my friend Jon Mundy. This is why I invited Jon to offer a class based on his book Living A Course in Miracles.

When all we do is study, without the practical application, there’s no healing, no expansion, no advancement and the we feel like a failure.

Applying even one principle of ACIM, with some little willingness, and some consistency will bring noticeable results. As they say, it works when you work it!

Applying ACIM to our everyday lives is a practice of ever increasing Joy. You can join me and Jon Mundy in our discussion of the practical application of applying the principles of ACIM today on my radio show.

Join Jon for his 6 part class series – live on video – ask him your questions! Jon’s class starts on Thursday.

The End of Lack

Thursday, March 8th, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

My intention is to inspire you to take your practice deeper. I’ll also be talking about ways that you can do that with me. I’ll preview my Finding Freedom Spiritual Bootcamp class where we focus on truly living ACIM and we join together to bring on miraculous breakthroughs. The next Finding Freedom Spiritual Bootcamp begins on March 14th. I’ve added some new things for you to check out! It’s truly better than ever.

Now is the time for us to fly! My Finding Freedom Spiritual Bootcamp is a way to get into a powerful spiritual community of like-minded souls who are committed to doing this healing work together NOW. Click here to register for my free Living A Course in Miracles and learn more.

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

If you feel that you’ve been playing small in any way, I’d love to support you in breaking free of that. If you’re feeling called to do this work with me, please trust that and allow Spirit to provide what is needed so that you can answer the call you’re feeling. We can do this together!

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

Letting Love In

Wednesday, February 7th, 2018

The people I know who are longing for more Love and connection in their life are sometimes aware that they are the ones that are blocking the flow of Love. Some folks are in relationships that don’t feel loving and the thought is that the reason there’s a lack of Love is because of what the other people are doing. Both perspectives can feel intensely depressing, frustrating and confusing as well as hurtful.

What can make things even more difficult, and we might not even realize it, is that we’re judging ourselves for not being able to figure it out. We judge ourselves as being a failure, or we judge our loved ones as being bad, wrong and a failure. Judge, judge, judge.

I can so relate to this. I would ping pong back and forth between the two mindsets of blaming myself and blaming others. Blaming doesn’t help.

What does help is being willing to look for the loving choices in the moment. We were talking about this in class last night. It’s about being able to PAUSE rather than react from the same perspective from the past.

When we pause, something new can happen.
With a pause we’re letting Spirit have a chance to get in.
In the pause we can hear the still small voice of Spirit.

It takes a strong willingness to move out of reaction and to the pause.

We all desire to be in the flow of Love so much, it’s worth a little pause, isn’t it?

If you KNEW that training yourself to pause in order to hear the voice for Love would improve the quality of every minute of the rest of your life, would you make it a priority?

Relationship Rescue

Tuesday, February 6th, 2018

For most of us, our relationships are the most challenging part of our lives. For so many, many years I deluded myself into believing that my relationship problems were ALL about the other people and what they were doing or not doing, what they’d done and not done.

I was willing to admit that I exacerbated the problems we had, but there was NO WAY I would take responsibility for the relationship problems and drama because it WASN’T MY FAULT.

There’s the crux of how the ego caught me like a fish on a hook. The ego ALWAYS looks to blame someone. I was a blamer and a complainer.

What I am so grateful for now is that I’ve learned that one person in a relationship can take 100% responsibility, and working with Spirit, because we share the same mind, the entire relationship can be turned around, miraculously. I see this year after year in my Masterful Living classes.

Relationship healing is the most common miracle that people experience in our classes. True and lasting healing, for which they are very grateful. It’s the gift they give to everyone in their lives.

True and lasting healing of any kind comes because we’ve healed the issue in our mind. The root cause of the problem is gone completely.

In the last few years I’ve been doing a bit of gardening and I’ve learned that if you don’t get the weeds out at the roots, they’ll come right back and often with more vigor, because they know they need to “bring it” with more ferocity in order to survive. Our mental and emotional problems can seem to operate in the same way.

In my classes we focus on healing to the absolute root. We put Spirit in charge because Spirit knows the root. Spirit knows EXACTLY how these beliefs came to our awareness, how they took root, and how we allowed them to grow, fed them and fueled them. Spirit knows every detail. Spirit can heal it in every nook and cranny because it doesn’t need to investigate. It already knows.

True, lasting, and miraculous healing is about being in a REAL partnership with the invisible field of Love that is always live-streaming insight and clarity to us, if we’re receptive. And that’s why I do what I do – to show people the way to do that!

In order to be more receptive, we have to clear the blocks to Love from our mind, working with Spirt, of course!

Prosperity & Abundance Practice

Monday, February 5th, 2018

I’ve watched this Power of Love Ministry grow and grow and serve many thousands of people around the world over the last 12 years. Our success is because of the foundation. We’re following Spirit’s guidance. We’re giving freely. We share about giving and being generous of heart and Spirit.

One of my favorite lines in all of Shakespeare comes from my favorite play of all time which is Romeo and Juliet. The line is from the beautiful balcony scene when Juliet and Romeo declare their love for each other and Juliet says,

“My generosity to you is as limitless as the sea,
and my love is as deep.
The more love I give you,
the more I have.
Both loves are infinite.”

This is how Love feels to me, it’s without condition, without reservation. Love is infinite generosity. Love is boundless givingness.

A Course in Miracles tells us “To have, give all to all.” In ACIM, Jesus tells us this is where the Holy Spirit begins our lessons – we must learn to give, for we have already received EVERYTHING.

The most fundamental practice of Prosperity and Abundance is to not hoard anything, and to not entertain limitation and lack. Don’t entertain the thoughts if you don’t wish to have the experience of them. Give them ALL to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing. Do it many times per day.

Spirit doesn’t know what limitation is because it’s not real. Lack doesn’t exist in our eternal nature. We’ve made it up and that’s why we see it.

The basis of our lack and limitation is withholding. The more I give Love the more I have EVERYTHING. I don’t think about lack and limitation anymore, but I used to think about it CONSTANTLY and I worried all the time about how to pay my bills.

Spirit taught me to give the stinking thinking away to the One who can heal it. I did and it has changed my life. It’s still part of my daily practice.

Spiritual practice is all day. It’s in everything. It’s in how I wash my body in the shower, with gentleness and tenderness. It’s in the way I eat my food with mindfulness. It’s in the way I bless everyone in the line at the bank. It’s our whole life.

Prosperity is our nature. Abundance is our inheritance, but if we hoard it and withhold Love, we won’t ever know it. Let’s release the blocks to Love and start over every moment. Spirit is always new, never-changing, perfect Love. That is what we truly are. Now is the moment for us to practice and give thanks that we can begin again.

If you’re ready to dump the old habits that drain you mentally, emotionally and physically, and replace them with habits that support you and increase your capacity for being loving and feeling connected to Spirit, come join me! We’re gaining REAL momentum this year! Join my New Year’s Rocket Fuel classes! We’re off to a powerful start – jump in and join us now!

Flowing in Abundance

Sunday, February 4th, 2018

Right now, in our human experience, we’re all working with the same lesson. Of course, this makes perfect sense, when you realize that we’re all one. All one, working on the same lesson.

We each have our individual aspects of the curriculum, and it all adds up to a complete and perfect whole.

What is this one great lesson? It’s the full realization of our unity and oneness in spirit. Every single problem, concern, worry, challenge, issue or upset that we have in our human experience is always related to a belief in separation – it’s all about a belief in limitation.

A belief in separation from God produces all sense of lack and limitation in our human experience.

Our willingness to accept the unity of all life increases our abundance and prosperity. When we actively recognize our connection with all beings, then we’re expanding our sense of worthiness and our understanding of our unlimited nature. This brings gratitude and that also generates more abundance.

Gratitude is the attitude that increases the good.

When we can accept that every problem is an expression of a belief in separation, it’s easier for us to let Spirit undo every problem, worry, doubt, fear and sense of doubt with one antidote: unity consciousness.

We don’t have to figure out how to solve any problems anymore. All we need do is recognize that every problem stems from an active belief in limitation and separation.

So the question is, are you willing to give up every problem you think have in exchange for recognizing that you are one with every person on this planet, every creature, and particle of life?

I AM willing to prove God as my very life! I AM willing to choose Love today!

If you’re ready to dump the old habits that drain you mentally, emotionally and physically, and replace them with habits that support you and increase your capacity for being loving and feeling connected to Spirit, come join me! We’re gaining REAL momentum this year! Join my New Year’s Rocket Fuel classes! We’re off to a powerful start – jump in and join us now!

Politics & Spirituality – Part 3

Monday, February 20th, 2017

This is Part 3 of a 3 part series.  You can start with Part 1 before reading this continuation.

In Part 1 of this 3 part series, I shared that in the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy had five special special relationships along her journey to Oz, including the “special hate relationship” with the Wicked Witch.  Along their journey to Oz, these relationships were transformed into what we might call Holy relationships.  In the process, Dorothy became transformed into a more mature, more loving person and a strong leader.

It’s possible to see Dorothy as another version of the Prodigal Son’s story, which is our story.

How is our journey, collectively and individually, represented, re-presented in The Wizard of Oz?  Can we find the similarities to our own life?

In The Wizard of Oz, the Scarecrow represents (re-presents) someone who is stuck and lacking in intelligence. It’s easy to see how a young girl like Dorothy could feel stupid, ignorant, or stuck some of the time.  And it’s fairly easy to see how that’s a projection of our own self-judgment some of the time too.   In the story, the Scarecrow re-presents an aspect of Dorothy that she’d been rejecting and judging.  He gives her the opportunity to look at her own beliefs and opinions, her judgments and thoughts and – as it says in A Course In Miracles, choose again.

When you look around your own world, can you see the person who re-presents your own self-judgments?  They’re actually a divine helper to you.  A Sacred Friend.

In my experience, the more someone seems to bother me, the more disowned the self-judgments and opinions are.  And here’s how this relates to politics.  In my daily Spiritual Espresso I wrote on November 9, 2016, called Be Unshakable, I shared that the election of Donald Trump had upset me because I had come to equate him with the men who had groped, grabbed and molested me.  It was as if those men who were so disrespectful and uncaring to me, and to women in general, had been elected as the leader of our great nation.  The idea of it upset me.  I had a belief that the President of the United States of America should be someone who can be great leader of the people.  I had to let that belief go.

In the days that followed, I was able to work with my mind to free myself of the old hurt and to see that Trump is a symbol of my whole experience and my healing.  I came to see him as one of my saviors.  By being willing to see him for the symbol of what he is in MY world, I can heal my own heart and mind.

Some spiritual students develop an aversion, which is a negative attachment, to people who behave in ways that they feel are unloving and unspiritual.  Any kind of aversion is an opportunity to have healing waiting to happen.  I know a lot about this because I used to get triggered by one aversion after another all day long.  I was a complainer and an attacker.  I took offense at almost everything.  Being upset was my negative high.  The ego feels so alive and powerful when it’s upset.

Aversions are a form of vengeance, they are an attack on God.

Perhaps the person or situation you think is upsetting you is simply a symbol, an archetype of something unhealed in your own mind that you’re rejecting rather than loving it free?  In which case, the symbol is there to help you.

As it says in A Course in Miracles, “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 chose the feelings I experience, and I decided
upon the goal I would achieve.
And everything that seems to happen to me
I asked for and received as I had 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.”

My shorthand for that teaching, that has helped me so much, is:

I AM responsible for what I see and everything is just as I wish it to be.

I’ve been a spiritual counselor for 17 years.  Consider how many times people have asked me to help them find happiness in relationship, career, financial stability, healing in the body.  And the real answer is:  take 100% responsbility, without any blame or judgment, for everything in your life.

That’s what works.  That’s what actually ends the suffering.

Be willing to recognize that everything in this world is symbolic.  Are you seeing things for what they really are re-presenting to you, or are you projecting your beliefs on them?

Can you feel that anything you’re holding against anyone, any judgment, or opinion, is really self-judgment?

Would you like to be relieved of the judgment forever?

Are you willing to take total responsibility?

Whenever we choose to judge rather than take responsibility it’s going to send us on a frightening and meaningless journey.

You decide how long your journey will be and how scary it will be based on your attack thoughts.  All attack is Self-Attack and all Love is Self-Love.

You are the decider.  You are the chooser.

What frightens us is:  2 powers

When we judge, we separate ourselves from our Godself and we now believe we are a separate power who has the power to attack, and immediately we become afraid because now we believe that there can be more than one power and those separate powers can attack.  If we can attack, then others can attack, and the world is no longer safe.  Lions and tigers and bears, oh, my!

It’s easy to judge the people we see in the newspaper and on television, especially when we can see they’re doing the things that we think are so unspiritual:  lying, being disrespectful, promiscuous, stealing, hurting and oppressing others.  It’s so easy to judge all of that behavior.  However, our judgments only hurt us and they do not help anyone.

I do not know what anything is for, except that it’s for my learning and my healing and I am interested in learning and healing NOW.  I AM choosing Love now.

When we realize there’s only one power, one life, one mind, one Presence, then we’re safe again.  There’s nothing to attack us because there’s only pure Love of Spirit.  There’s nothing to defend against when we’re not thinking attacking thoughts.  “In our defenselessness our safety lies.”

If you’re not at Peace then you must have decided wrongly.  It’s time to choose again.  Give all the consequences of your wrong decision to the Holy Higher Spirit Self to undo.  Do this now, and keep doing it until you feel free.  This really works, but you won’t know it until you prove it to yourself.

Prove God works in your life.  This is different than studying and learning, this is living and practicing the truth.

Because we’re living in a holographic world of illusion and projection, the Higher Holy Spirit Self can EASILY undo all the consequences of our wrong decision if we allow it.  We must choose it.  That’s the ONLY way, there is no other way.

In fact, I Love that ACIM tells us, that our willingness is all that’s required and that it’s actually hubris to think that we can do more.  We cannot do more, so let’s stop thinking that we need do more.  Let’s be COMPLETELY willing to give up the crazy, stinking, thinking to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing and choose the most loving thoughts we can find in the moment.

Now is the time for us to awaken from the dream of separation to realize it really has been an adventure in the mind, and that we are where we always have been, at home in the Love of God.

And, on a personal note, I’m an activist.  Jesus was an activist.  Mary Magdalene was an activist.  The apostles were all activists.  Gandhi was an activist.  MLK was an activist.  I claim these people as my teachers.  My way of demonstrating activism is to practice nonviolence and non-judgment and to speak about the benefits of the active practice of both.  And, just as my teachers before me called out those who weren’t telling the truth, who were actively misleading people, I feel that’s worth doing when I can do it with LOVE.   And that’s where my spiritual practice is, every day.

I’m so grateful that I can realize that when I’m bothered by what I see, it’s time to take responsibility.  I must take responsibility before I take action or I’m only adding to my pain and I don’t wish to do that to myself anymore.  I am loving myself free of all lack, attack, limitation and separation thinking.  I can see now that Self-Love is the great healer of every problem in the world.

I choose Love and Freedom for all.

Retreat with me!  I’m offering a deeply healing, renewing and restoring retreat March 16 to 19 in New York.  As always on my retreats we’ll have a lot of fun while we’re doing a lot of deep cleansing and clearing of old emotional and mental baggage.  It’s such a relief to let it go!  If you’d like to start your spring with real clarity and healing, come join me!  Click here for details about my Masterful Living Retreat – the early bird discount is on now – this retreat is open to all – come and bring a friend!

Politics & Spirituality – Part 2

Sunday, February 19th, 2017

This is Part 2 of a 3 part series.  You can start with Part 1 before reading this continuation.

In Part 1 of this 3 part series, I shared that in the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy had five special special relationships along her journey to Oz, including the “special hate relationship” with the Wicked Witch.  These relationships  that were transformed into what we might call Holy relationships.

At the end of the story, when Dorothy wakes up from her dream, she realizes that those she’d been on the journey to Oz with were her loved ones from back home in a new disguise.  And, in their dream world identities, it’s easier for us to see these characters as archetypes and projections of Dorothy’s disowned selves.

In other words, if we take a step back, and look at everything in the story as a symbol, then we can see what things are for.  When we’re upset and emotional (like Dorothy and the other characters are sometimes) then we have a difficult time knowing what things are for.

A Course in Miracles tells us in Lesson #25 (one of my favorites because it’s so helpful) we’re told “I don’t know what anything is for.”

In The Wizard of Oz, it seems like the Wicked Witch of the West is the arch enemy.  It seems as if we know what she’s for – she represents evil and unloving people.  She re-presents the opportunity for us to choose again.  In Dorothy’s story, she’s the “bad guy,” but is she?  Maybe the force and pressure of the Wicked Witch is precisely what Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Lion and the Tin Man must face in order to rise above theiri resistance and reluctance to look within and find their greatness?  Maybe the Wicked Witch is actually a helper in divine disguise.

Who is the “Wicked Witch” in your life?  Maybe they’re a blessing calling you to rise to your greatness?  Have you been cursing them?  Are they the enemy or are they your savior?

We’re told throughout ACIM these basics:

  • Everything works together for our good and there are NO EXCEPTIONS.
  • Everything is helpful and valuable.
  • Nothing we think we see with the body’s eyes is real, or meaningful.  Only Love is real.

So, let’s take another, deeper look at Dorothy’s friends:  Remember that the Scarecrow, like any scarecrow, was originally designed to scare away crows in order to protect the crops.  To the crows, he’s the symbol or representation of a human being.  What do crows represent?  Black crows symbolize communication from the gods, divination of the future.  To the Hindus, crows are representative of the ancestors and they give them offerings of food.

So, the Scarecrow – who isn’t very smart because he doesn’t have a brain – represents (re-presents) someone who’s actually scaring away divine insight, Wisdom of the ancestors, divine guidance and direction.  What could be less wise than that?

However, with Dorothy’s Love and friendship the Scarecrow transforms and can now have a whole new life – he doesn’t have to live out his days stuck on a pole in a field – he’s free to follow the guidance he’s been scaring away.  That’s just like us.  When we stop “scaring away” communication from God, we begin to realize we have access to true Wisdom and insight.

The Cowardly Lion was intimidating when Dorothy first met him.  She meets him in the dark and creepy forest.  In a sense, he’s like the monster under the bed.  In the dark, roaring from a distance, he’s frightening.  Up close, he’s all ego bluff and bluster, picking a fight with the Scarecrow and the Tin Man.  When the Lion goes after Toto, Dorothy unexpectedly has the courage to slap him, and that completely disarms the Lion who dissolves in tears.  She’s like the child who has the courage to turn on the light and look under the bed to see there’s nothing frightening there.

Look how quickly the Lion transforms from an aggressor to a cry baby scaredy cat.  He joins their journey and with Dorothy’s Love and support as well as the Scarecrow and the Tin Man, he’s able to shift into his heart and find courage.

Courage actually means strength of heart.  To me, someone who has courage is able to stay in their heart, have strength and taking loving action EVEN THOUGH they might feel quite frightened.  Because of their Love for each other, Dorothy, the Lion, the Scarecrow and the Tin Man are all willing to find the courage to take loving action when they feel afraid. Isn’t that just like us?  We inspire each other with our courage and willingness.  In this way we share the benefits with everyone.  When one is lifted all are lifted.

When Dorothy meets him, the Tin Man has been stuck for a year.  Think about it, there’s a pattern here – the Scarecrow was stuck on a pole when Dorothy first encounters him.  Similarly, the Lion felt he was stuck in the dark and creepy forest.

The Tin Man yearns to have a heart so he can be loving and open up his narrow world.  What he discovers on the journey to Oz is that he actually only need EXPRESS Love in order to recover his loving heart.  It’s his own natural capacity to Love and be loved that becomes awakened in him and restores him.  Isn’t that just like us?

It’s our capacity to be loving and express Love, and especially to SHARE and EXTEND Love that redeems and restores us as well as strengthens us – and everyone around us.  This is why I say “Love is the healer.”  Love is our natural state.  It is the ground of our being and when we’re loving we’re restored to our true identity.

We don’t need someone to empower us, we can empower ourselves through being loving.  In fact, there’s no other way to turn on Self-empowerment.  AND, while we don’t NEED someone else, isn’t it easier when we can join with others?  YES!

When we can join with others, have compassion for them, and Love them unconditionally then we’re undefeatable, and we’re able to find our way back home to our true reality.

Dorothy’s journey in The Wizard of Oz is an archetypal  journey, it’s the journey we’re all on.

In Part 1 of this series, I invited you to consider who are the Scarecrow, Lion, Tin Man, Good Witch, Bad Witch in your life?  If they feel like special relationships now, can you ask and allow the Holy Spirit to transform them into Holy Healing and Healed Relationships?

Many people have been telling me how deeply threatened and upset they feel by the new American President and the choices he and his staff have made since they came into office.  For some of us it’s frightening to consider that we’d have things we love like National Public Radio, PBS and the National Endowment for the Arts taken away while in order to fund building a wall of separation.  For some people, that’s really scary stuff.

If you are one who feels upset, (and really this can apply to ANYONE or anything you believe is upsetting you) what if you can look at them, even for just a moment, as a projection of some unhealed part of your own mind?

What is the message you’re sending to yourself?

Consider seeing ALL judgment as self-judgment and ALL Love as Self-Love.

I’ve really come to see that the only way out of all problems, difficulties, pain and suffering is through my own loving heart.  My ability to be loving is the only thing that transforms any situation to a healed one.

AND what about times when it seems like you’re co-dependent with someone in your life who is making unloving choices?  Is it loving to say nothing and let them dig themselves a hole and then find their own way out of it?  Is that actually Love?  What’s our responsibility to help our brothers and sisters to find their way out of the creepy forest and into the Light.

A Course in Miracles tells us that the way out of ALL suffering is taking full responsibility.  Are we willing to take full responsibility for the world we see without having ANY blame at all?  How do we do that?

This is Part 2 of a 3 Part series. In Part 3, on Monday, I’ll address how we can take responsibility and simultaneously be at Peace with it.  More to come!  Thank you for journeying with me!

Retreat with me!  I’m offering a deeply healing, renewing and restoring retreat March 16 to 19 in New York.  As always on my retreats we’ll have a lot of fun while we’re doing a lot of deep cleansing and clearing of old emotional and mental baggage.  It’s such a relief to let it go!  If you’d like to start your spring with real clarity and healing, come join me!  Click here for details about my Masterful Living Retreat – the early bird discount is on now – this retreat is open to all – come and bring a friend!

Politics & Spirituality – Part 1 of 3

Saturday, February 18th, 2017

This is Part 1 of a 3 part series.  Many of the dedicated spiritual students that I’ve talked with lately have really been struggling for the last six months because of their political and personal views and what they see transpiring in the world.

When I was in beautiful Australia last September we were talking about the fear of terrorism when loved ones, living in other countries, were living with what felt like a very real threat.  How do you work with it at the level of the mind to heal it.

A Course in Miracles says, “Nothing real can be threatened, nothing unreal exists.”

Many have been asking me how to hold the current political situation in America with Love when things feel so challenging.

Recently someone I Love told me they didn’t wish to have anything to do with me anymore because they found out I support a woman’s right to choose.  In their opinion, it meant I was judgmental and, essentially, not really walking my talk and so they were angry with me.

As a spiritual counsellor, I have been counselling people for years who were experiencing severe anger and anxiety because of their beliefs about politics, politicians and the world.

For many years, people have been asking me for advice about how to handle the intensity of their fear and upset regarding situations in the world.  They ask me what I do, and so I thought I’d share some things that could be helpful.

First, A Course in Miracles tells us right at the very beginning of the Text to “seek not to change the world, but to change our mind about the world.”  It tells us that to have complete Peace, and to see with Divine Vision, all we need do is to take responsibility for the world we see.  And that’s the path that works for me.

It’s 100% responsibility for the world I see.

0% blame for any of it.

ACIM begins teaching us right at the beginning of the Workbook that the world we think we see is symbolic.  Everything is symbolic of what we believe.   Yes, everything is a symbol we see with our mind.

In the gorgeous story The Wizard of Oz we find a similar kind of story to our own story, or script, as ACIM calls it.  Dorothy is the prodigal daughter.  Consider the very important details and plot points:

  1. 1. Dorothy gets upset because she thinks people don’t really love and understand her.  She mis-interprets what’s going on and she clings to her judgment/opinion and she decides to run away.  Her mis-interpretation is merely a projection of her own lack of Self-Love and insecurity.  Dorothy’s “decides” to escape to a new and different “reality.”  Like the prodigal son, she sets off on an adventure.  Isn’t that just like us?  We decide our interpretation is correct – even though it scares us.  Using our judgments, opinions, interpretations, we’re able to block our heart awareness.  With our heart awareness blocked, we interpret the symbols around us through the lens of our history and the meaning we’ve made of things in the past.  Therefore, “everything I see only has the meaning that I give it.”  And so we set off down a path of darkness, frightening ourselves at every turn.
  2. 2. A terrifying and life-threatening storm/tornado comes.  As soon as we set off down a road of trying to create our own alternative reality based on our interpretations, a terrifying storm enters our life.  It’s called separation.  We separate ourselves from the flow of Love.  And that’s exactly what Dorothy does.  She’s on her own, in a storm, without Love and she gets hit in the head.  In a sense, she loses her mind.
  3. 3. Dorothy now finds herself in a magical land and she only wants to get back home.  Again, isn’t this just like us, like the prodigal son/daughter?  At home there’s real Love, security and comfort.  Escaping to this alternative reality, things are unreliable and constantly shape-shifting.  Attack is constant.  Fear is sparked around every corner.
  4. 4. Along the way, Dorothy makes five special relationships.  Dorothy meets others along the way:  the Scarecrow who thinks he doesn’t have a brain (wisdom), the lion who thinks he doesn’t have courage (strength of heart) and the Tin Man who thinks he doesn’t have a heart (capacity to Love and be loved).  These three companions are actually projections of her own belief about herself.  Glenda the Good Witch is Dorothy’s kinder loving nature – her Higher Holy Spirit Self.  The Wicked Witch of the West is Dorothy’s ego that is so hurt and afraid it only knows how to destroy and punish to find power.  Each of these five are crucial parts of Dorothy’s identity.  She must Love the parts of herself that she judges in order to experience their highest expression and find her way home.  Just like the Lion must discover that he actually does have true courage, the Tin Man learns he does have a heart and great capacity to Love while the Scarecrow discovers he has the Wisdom to make loving choices even when he’s threatened.  Their experiences ARE Dorothy’s experiences because they share the same mind.   Dorothy must see all of this unfold in her outer world to recognize the reflection of her inner world, her true Self.  Notice that the Tin Man, Scarecrow and Lion are childlike and simple.  Dorothy, when she aligns with her own inner strength is able to be a parent to them even though she’s actually still a girl herself.  Her inner wisdom is naturally mature and wise, but when she’s judgmental, she can’t access that Wisdom, and then she’s immature and afraid.
  5. 5. After battling and dissolving the Wicked Witch Dorothy finds the way to go back home.  Since the Wicked Witch (ego) is out to kill Dorothy, she has to battle the Wicked Witch to get free and focus on what’s most important to her – going home.  She literally dissolves the Wicked Witch with a bucket of water.  What is water but a symbol of clear thought, and clarity?  To the interpreters of dreams, water symbolizes our intuition.  What is the thing that pushes Dorothy to stand up to the Witch and to throw that bucket of water upon her?  It’s the Love she has for her loved one. It’s the power of Love that gives her the courage and the insight.
  6. 6. Dorothy succeeds because of the Love she has for her companions.  The thing that gives her the strength to launch this battle with the Wicked Witch (ego) and get her power back is the Holy Relationships that she has with her “mighty companions.”  They’re “all for one and one for all.”  This loving alignment with her friends (who represent her disowned selves) is what brings her back into her right mind.  They’re relationships transform from special to holy as they learn to love, support and accept each other unconditionally with compassion.
  7. 7. Glenda points out that Dorothy had the power all along.  In order to go home, Dorothy has to realize that the kingdom is within.  The “mighty and powerful Wizard of Oz” who cannot rescue her, she must rescue herself.  The only thing that can take her home is going within, and desiring to be at home, where the True Love is.  That’s the decision that only she can make.  That’s the willingness that only she can find.
  8. 8. Dorothy awakes from the dream.   She discovers she’s already at home.  The prodigal daughter “returns” only to discover she didn’t go anywhere.  She never left.  It was all in her mind – a dream.
  9. 9. Dorothy realizes how much she is loved.   No one is holding anything against Dorothy because of the judgments she had before she ran away.  They’re all just glad she’s back. Everyone rejoices, no one is angry that Dorothy went off on an adventure to discover what it would be like to be separate.  No one is angry because they know it was just a dream.

Look around your life – who is the Scarecrow, Lion, Tin Man, Good Witch, Bad Witch in your life?  If they feel like special relationships now, can you ask and allow the Holy Spirit to transform them into Holy Healing and Healed Relationships?

If the politics of the world are upsetting you, and frightening you, are you willing to more clearly see that it’s not the world that is upsetting, it’s your thoughts about the world.

We’re on a journey home, just like Dorothy.  Our landscape will shift and change when we change our mind about it.

This is Part 1 of a 3 Part series. In Part 2, on Sunday, I’ll  share more about how to recognizes what the symbols we see in the world are for – and how they actually point us in the direction home.

Retreat with me!  I’m offering a deeply healing, renewing and restoring retreat March 16 to 19 in New York.  As always on my retreats we’ll have a lot of fun while we’re doing a lot of deep cleansing and clearing of old emotional and mental baggage.  It’s such a relief to let it go!  If you’d like to start your spring with real clarity and healing, come join me!  Click here for details about my Masterful Living Retreat – the early bird discount is on now – this retreat is open to all – come and bring a friend!

Choosing Spiritual Expansion

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017

One of the main things I figured out that has helped me SO very much has been how to get more balanced in my life. This includes getting into integrity with myself. The more I figure this out, the more amazed I am at the difference it makes!

I’ve been so grateful with how much more ease and grace there is in my life since I put into application the spiritual teachings that I now share with others. I no longer feel like I’m running and rushing to catch up all the time. Working in the invisible works!

For years, I studied spiritual books and took classes, seminars, workshops & retreats, gathering lots of information, investing time and $$$, but I wasn’t seeing great results because I didn’t really apply what I’d learned – that’s the missing step! I had allowed the EGO to run my spiritual life instead of living a life of LOVE.

It’s been a challenge for me to stop managing situations, coping with circumstances and settling for dysfunction. I’d rather actively be focusing on transformation.  In order to do this, I had to learn how to work in the invisible realm of infinite possibility. I learn more about this every day because it’s so valuable to me. I keep working with it minute by minute. There’s no resting on my laurels – ever.

Let me give you an example: I used to have WAY too many things to do and I always felt burdened by it. When I was in my coping and managing strategy, I’d work and work and WORK until I was over-exhausted and then I’d do something that would just make it worse like stay up way too late watching an old movie I loved, or have a few glasses of wine to chillax, or I’d do something which would then put me in a catch-up state the next day.

The smart thing to do would have been to have NO glasses of wine, take a restorative bath with candlelight and essential oils (also cheaper), and go to bed early so I could at least have a hope of waking up refreshed. That would have been the loving choice.

Coping and managing is what I did when I didn’t really want to let Spirit into my life. I didn’t want to be spiritually mature and responsible. Who knew where that would end? It could lead me to a whole new life that I wasn’t prepared for!! If I wasn’t prepared for it, how the heck would I learn to manage and cope with it? I wouldn’t be able to, so I’d probably just crash and burn – or so I thought.

I let the fear of failure keep me from trying to live a more awakened life – I wasn’t noticing that I was ALREADY FAILING. I was failing because I intended to live a spiritually expansive life, but I wasn’t letting myself do it!! I was stuck playing small, by my own choice, day after day. It was so uncomfortable. It was actually painful.

I justified playing small like that for years. YEARS. I had so many excuses of why I couldn’t deepen my practice and why I couldn’t stick to things and how if only I had more time I’d be able lead a balanced life, or if only I had more $$$ I’d have more time. I had totally succumbed to the illusion of separation and stuckness.

I learned that the only way out of that IS spiritual practice. Connection with God is the ONLY way to transform that level of stuckness. Without GOD as the driving force in your life you will stay there, digging in deeper and deeper into coping and managing strategies until your whole life becomes a big settlement for …. whatever’s on TV, and whatever’s in the fridge. Right?

I decided to Stop Playing Small and become masterful. I decided to learn to work in the invisible because the field of Love Intelligence moves faster than lightning and always has my highest good at the top of the agenda. I’m still learning to do 90% of my work in the invisible and 10% in the world of form. I was exhausted from trying to MAKE things happen, and now I can allow them to happen. I invite them and invoke them and receive them.

  • Yes, I must be 100% mindful if I intend 100% effectiveness, and that’s not always easy to achieve.
  • Yes, I no longer have the luxury of hiding or complaining or attacking and the good news is I don’t wish to! I’m not available for that anymore!!
  • Yes, I’m investing in a balanced wholesome life of LOVE.

And I’m inviting you to give yourself the very best of yourself and require that you stop managing and coping and instead get into your naturalness, into your luminous light being self, and shed the ways of fear and separation you’ve become comfortable with.

Require and inspire – require the change, inspire yourself to follow through.

So what if it’s not easy! The only other choice is to continue to suffer and that’s not easy either. NOW IS OUR TIME! This is the Golden Age of Enlightenment unfolding and we’re awake enough to know what our part can be if we choose it!

I was the one that had to make the decision to really ALLOW THIS HEALING.  No one could do it for me. Is there anyone that can do it for you?

I said in my radio show yesterday, if I could do this work for other people, I’d be the wealthiest person in the world.  I can only do it for myself.

You CAN do it!! Maybe you already are. I am here to walk with you and support you if you’d like that.

And if you’d like the support of a simple program that’s proven to work, and the company of some beautiful, committed, like-minded souls from all over the world, then don’t hesitate to join us in Masterful Living 2017 – click here to discover what awaits you!

True Power

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

We’ve all had SO MANY conversations about giving our power away that we may even believe we’re aware of when we give our power away and when we don’t.

As we’ve all realized, just because we believe something intellectually, doesn’t mean we really understand and know it. Having information doesn’t awaken our awareness. Accepting the learning into our heart BY MEANS OF OPENING TO LOVE is what awakens our awareness. We learn this over and over, and over and over again.

For myself, I used to be very arrogant about what I knew.
I believed that having an intellectual awareness of something meant that I knew it.
I had to be humbled 50 million times before I finally became AWARE that the ego was driving my intellect and the ego doesn’t know anything worth knowing – only the heart does.

If you’re feeling angry because of something that someone else did, then you’re giving your power to them.

If you feel angry because of some circumstance or situation, then you’re giving your power away to an “outside” source.

The same is true if you feel you’re experiencing hurt, fear or sadness, because of some situation or event, or person in the world.

Only when we’re willing to realize that giving our power away is giving that thing, person or event AUTHORITY over our mind, do we start waking up.

Likewise, if someone or something has the power to make you happy, you’ve given them authority, too.

There is one TRUE power, and one authority, and that is Love.
All is Love.  Love is All.

When we align with LOVE, as the one and only power and authority in our life, everything starts to heal.

Love is the author of Love and nothing else.
Love only knows itself as Love and only expresses itself as Love.
Love can NEVER cause fear, doubt, worry, anger, resentment, regret, sadness, blame, hurt, or confusion.

Only choosing thoughts of lack, limitation, judgment, and separation (they’re all the same thing), can lead you to feel fear, doubt, worry, anger, resentment, regret, sadness, blame, hurt, or confusion. Why? Because when you choose to energize those thoughts of separation with the power of your belief, you’re giving your authority to the root cause of all suffering – and what could be more terrifying, confusing and debilitating than that?

This awakening awareness is what all of my classes are about – cultivating, it nurturing it, celebrating it!

If you find yourself thinking that others have you made you feel anything, then be SO GRATEFUL – KISS yourself! – for your awakening awareness and the blooming realization that you’re thinking crazy, self-destructive, pain-inducing thoughts, and you’re now aware that you have the ability to change your mind – you have the ability to make Love your authority. Hallelujah!

If you hear yourself telling ANYONE that someone or something MADE you feel anything, be SO GRATEFUL – do the victory dance! – because you’re now aware that you have the ability to change your mind – you have the ability to make Love your authority.  Amazing grace is here!

I AM Love.
Be still and know I AM God.
I AM that I AM.

When you make Love your authority, Love leads and you, naturally and gracefully, embody Love and now the healing is non-stop. Go for it!

Finding the Treasure

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

No matter how many books I read, classes I took, papers I wrote, nothing seemed to crack the code.  I was still spinning around in a circle trying to figure out how to have a breakthrough.

That’s what I love about A Course in Miracles.  It’s all in there.  ACIM tells us the treasures are hidden in plain sight.  And yet, I have connected with so many people who have been studying ACIM for years, but still don’t feel the Peace.

The healing is in the application.  The healing is in the consistent willingness to be loving and forgiving.

I feel so strongly that the time has come for us to be more sincere than ever before.

More than ever before it’s important for us to work in groups of Love and support.  And that’s why I’m adding some new things to Masterful Living this year to support us even more deeply in having the breakthrough and healing we desire.

Yesterday, I spoke with Shelia who is in Masterful Living for a second year, and she realized that her chronic pain that had plagued her for years had miraculously stopped.  She used to take pain relief medication all day long, and now she hasn’t needed it for months.

It may be hard to believe, but all healing IS at the level of the mind.

Shelia’s not doing something special.  As wonderful as she is, she isn’t special, in the sense that she doesn’t have something you and I don’t have.  What she has is a great willingness to change her mind and to be Joyful.  She’s willing to practice what she’s learning and take it from the mind to the heart to her life.  And that’s the true miracle!

Would you like a spiritual mentor? Are you ready to have a new experience in the new year? We’re doing the deep work and the healing is revealing itself in our lives! If you’d like to join me in my year-long Masterful Living Course 2017, then please click here to learn more now.

We’re starting on January 1st.  If you’re willing, I’m willing. If this is right for you, you WILL know it.  In my year-long Masterful Living Course a number of people have healed their depression, gone off anti-depressants, let go of old hurts and sadness that has troubled them for many years.  They have accomplished what they never believed they could do, because they gave themselves a chance, and they didn’t give up.  You can do it too.

Healing habits that are the cause of depression and fear is a major part of what my Masterful Living Course is all about. My 2017 Course begins in just a few weeks! There’s such a joy that breaks out when people are practicing releasing the shame and the fear together and encouraging each other.

FREE CLASS TOMORROW:  Unblock the Flow of Your Time, Energy & Money is a preview class for Masterful Living 2017 – check it out and start making use of the tips and tools I share in this free class.  Register now, come join me live and ask me your questions!

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.
