We Are Worthy

Wednesday, July 29th, 2020

One of the most common things I witness with people is that they don’t feel worthy of Love.

Unworthiness is something that many are in the process of healing right now. And we can help them, which, in turn, helps us too! When one rises, all rises.

If you see someone who appears to feel unworthy in anyway, see if you can extend Love to them – it can be silent, it can be in the form of kindness or patience, or anything – but INTEND that it be an expression of Love and it will be healing for both of you.

There are so many ways each day that we contribute to making the world a better place. This is really what our life is for.

Sometimes a memory of someone I was unkind to, or someone who has been going through difficulty will come into my awareness. It seems random, but I’ve learned that it’s definitely not random. (There’s nothing random in this universe.) This is the moment to seize the opportunity to extend Love to my brother or sister.

I’ve learned that these seemingly random thoughts and memories are part of the way that Spirit is reminding me to pray for people. AND I AM SO GRATEFUL TO BE REMINDED!

My life has healed so much because I keep bringing my attention back to the blessings.

A Course in Miracles says that in order to have, we must give all to all. It’s the sharing and the caring that magnifies and multiplies. I have certainly been able to prove that this works in my life!

We can all extend more Love and Light and in doing so we are making ourselves more available to receive.

The more we receive, the more we feel worthy, and the more worthy we feel the more we have to share, and then the more worthy we feel to receive and it’s a beautiful circle of giving and receiving.

I’m so grateful that we can extend and share Love every day in new and healing ways. It feels miraculous!

Willingness Rather Than Will Power

Sunday, January 5th, 2020

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Healing the painful view is an inside job.

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

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

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

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

*Love
*Self-forgiveness
*Willingness

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

There’s a big difference between WILLPOWER vs WILLINGNESS.

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

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

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

Resolutions require willpower.

Will power is part of a plan of behavior modification.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Willpower only deals with symptoms.

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

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

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

Instead, you willFULLY, self-destructed?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Learning Happily

Friday, December 27th, 2019

If we’re friends on Facebook, I’d love to hear from you. Yesterday I asked what folks were feeling was the best gift of the year. It’s wonderful to see folks responses, and I hope you’ll add yours. You can click here to write something now.

I have learned the power of taking time to take stock and really look around my life. There are so many blessings for us all of the time, and when we are willing to really recognize them, we can see how many there are even in the midst of some really awful situations.

We can have a tendency to focus on what we don’t like, and that just brings more of the same. I was an expert in that! I really turned bad to worse so many days of my life by complaining about everything around me.

You see, I really truly believed that by cataloging all of the things I didn’t like, I was somehow protecting myself from more of the same. I had no idea that I was hurting myself and really impairing my happiness.

I believed that if I didn’t complain that there’d just be more and more of the same.

Of course, I believed that fantasy of protection EVEN THOUGH life was trying to teach me others. I was very keen to reject anything Spirit was teaching me that ran counter to my beliefs.

Now, I have a different perspective.
And, I have that different perspective and don’t feel shame or regret because I’ve forgiven myself for my choice to learn through suffering.

This is a big part of our curriculum in Masterful Living – learning through suffering can be optional. We cultivate a RELATIONSHIP with Spirit so that we’re no longer feeling on our own having to figure everything out.

Instead, we can receive direct insight from the Spirit.

We learn how to be guided and led.

It’s so much easier and it’s fun, as well as fulfilling. It just feels SO right.

We can learn through what feels right, and good, and true.

That’s called being a happy and joyous learner, and it’s great to be able to develop this skill. It’s what we do in Masterful Living.

Anyone can learn to live this way and transform the inner turmoil.

There are so many more wonderful ways to invest our time, energy, and money rather than spending it on managing to cope and survive.

This does take faith and trust, and that’s one of the keys to the curriculum as well. Trust is a major issue for most people, so we focus on building trust while developing our fatih.

Learning to be better receivers is just one of the things we learn in my yearlong Masterful Living Course. We actively practice healing the deep sense of unworthiness that most spiritual students suffer from. If you feel called, come join us in 2020 for the best year of your life – the year that changes EVERYTHING, if you’re willing. Let’s do it together. If you’d like to find out what others are saying about this powerful community, please click here to learn more now.

Bonus classes start on January 1st. If you’re willing, I’m willing. If this is right for you, you WILL know it. In my yearlong 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.

Our first BONUS class is New Year’s Reboot on January 1.

I LOVE the New Year’s Reboot class. I’ve been doing it for 12 years now, and it’s one of my all-time favorites! I just love the fresh start of a new year! WOOHOO!

I am grateful for this path we’re on and our ability to open to receive spiritual inspiration, guidance, and Clarity because we feel worthy. We are worthy!

If you’re going to join us next year in the Masterful Living Course 2020, I encourage you to register early.

Give yourself this gift and you’ll be amazed at how your connection with Spirit will bloom!

Recognizing Our Holiness

Sunday, December 8th, 2019

I love A Course in Miracles because it’s a mind-training system that really works. It has really worked for me – and it continues to bring me benefits every day. I’m not interested in studying it, I’m interested in discovering how to fully LIVE it.

The more I live it, the more peaceful I am and the better my relationships become. I am so grateful that we can undo even the most entrenched patterns of unworthiness and upset.

Look, there are times when the patterns and beliefs of negativity and unworthiness are super sticky. They can feel like they have a magnetic pull that is impossible to resist. We can tumble or collapse into self-sabotage and then feel like an utter failure, ashamed and despairing.

We can feel compelled to repeat the patterns that we fear. We’ll act out the very patterns that leave us feeling like a fool and we cannot seem to stop ourselves. The only conclusion can be that we are worthless or malformed in some way, but this is not true and will never be true.

We are pure perfection and we have come to believe otherwise, but a belief is not the truth. And only truth is true. The only truth is real.

That’s what I focus on – the practical application and living of the truth that sets us free. I don’t focus on the darkness anymore.

As we’re only a few weeks away from the start of a new year, I’m inviting you to consider a new approach to your spiritual life in 2020. Consider focusing on living your practice by embodying it and applying it, day by day, in a non-intellectual, truly heart-felt way for the express purpose of liberation from the false – that’s a goal we can aspire to.

It’s much easier to let go of any idea that we’re not perfect than it is to start with the belief that we’re imperfect trying to carve out the worst bits and fabricate some kind of perfection. No! Enough!

Let’s recognize the perfection is ALREADY THERE.

Studying the truth doesn’t set us free. Living the truth is liberation!

One of my favorite passages in the Course that lit me up when I first read it is this, (T-18.VII.4.)

This course … aims at saving time. You may be attempting to follow a very long road to the goal you have accepted. It is extremely difficult to reach Atonement by fighting against sin. Enormous effort is expended in the attempt to make holy what is hated and despised.

Nor is a lifetime of contemplation and long periods of meditation aimed at detachment from the body necessary. All such attempts will ultimately succeed because of their purpose.

Yet the means are tedious and very time consuming, for all of them look to the future for release from a state of present unworthiness and inadequacy.

Your way will be different, not in purpose but in means. A holy relationship is a means of saving time.

I love this passage because it reminds us that we’re already as holy as holy can be. We cannot become more holy. We’re already there if we’re willing to “release from a state of present unworthiness” now. This now. What’s the mechanism that helps us the most?

Holy relationship as a spiritual practice.

Our relationships are the thing that can really challenge us consistently, and this is where we can have the most opportunity to practice ACIM. Our relationships and our bodies both offer a constant opportunity for us to recognize where our thinking is stinking, and we can Partner UP and change our minds.

When we see the shifts and changes in our relationships, then we know it’s working. It’s so obvious and it’s wonderful to share the results with our loved ones through our relationships.

This is what we live, practice and demonstrate in my year-long Masterful Living Course. And that’s why most participants find that relationship healing is the #2 result they have during the year. The #1 result is a closer connection to Spirit and a basic spiritual practice that really works for them.

We don’t study ACIM in Masterful Living – we LIVE it. That’s our focus. Really truly living it – and you don’t have to even own a copy of the book to learn to live it.

It’s the living of this precious teaching that is liberating. Studying is to inspire us to apply it, and that requires us to be willing to recognize our perfection and see that same perfection in others, no matter what the appearance is, no matter what the failure or shortcoming seems to be.

And that IS challenging. And that is why we pray! We pray in order to turn it over and Partner UP so that we’re not going on our own steam anymore and we can see and feel miraculous results.

Anyone can see your holiness and their own if they wish to.

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. Pray with me today. The Prayer for Today is for Recognizing Our Holiness. 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!

I am grateful for this path we’re on and our ability to take a step upon it!

Turning Away From Darkness

Saturday, December 7th, 2019

Let’s face it if we’re labeling, blaming, attacking, and judging, we’re just not interested in healing. There’s no way for us to be interested in complaining and loving at the same time. We have to choose one or the other. We can’t have both.

We can’t choose the darkness and the Light at the same time. We have to turn in one direction or the other.

It’s a decision we can make. And for many people choosing Light means choosing the unfamiliar. Many would rather choose the familiar darkness than the unfamiliar Light.

We can hide in the darkness, but we cannot hide in the Light. Get it?

Here’s something to think about:
Why would you want to hide?

Really think about it.

Why do you want to hide?
What are you really afraid of what would be seen in the Light?

These are worth thinking about.

I do know so many who feel safer hiding in the darkness and I get it.

That’s why trust is such a core issue for ALL of us. Learning to trust and have faith is something we can do if we’re willing.

To gain that willingness, we have to be willing to stop hiding in the dark. Yes, it’s challenging. Everything worth having is challenging and it’s a different kind of challenging than the challenge of being unhappy.

It’s just that sitting alone in the darkness or feeling alone in the darkness is familiar.

If we rely upon Spirit to guide us, the Light will become familiar.
It’s one step at a time. One choice at a time.
The first step is we choose to be free.

Are you interested in getting to the root cause of all your problems?
If that sounds good to you, come join us! Undoing Unworthiness starts today!

Let’s have fun lightening our load and learning through Joy!

A belief in unworthiness and a habit of self-attack undermines your happiness every moment of every day.

With the work we’ll do in this class, you can end your year feeling spiritually successful and start your new year ready to have the best year ever. This is the perfect time to do this. Click here now to learn more.

A 3-part live video online class to support you in having a breakthrough and learning the REAL benefits of life when you feel worthy of Love, Abundance and ALL the good life has to offer.

Self-Liberation & Self-Worth

Friday, December 6th, 2019

Wow! What a great session we had last night in my Undoing Unworthiness class. It’s so exciting for me that we can undo these false beliefs and have real healing when we’re willing to look within. A Course in Miracles warns us about the fear to look within.

Beneath your fear to look within because of sin is yet another fear and one which makes the ego tremble. What if you looked within and saw no sin? This “fearful” question is one the ego never asks. T-21.IV.2.

There is no sin. We are not sinners. The entire belief in unworthiness, guilt, and shame is a fabrication. It’s a story we made up, built upon our own interpretations and misunderstandings. Unworthiness is a house of cards that will fall if we’re willing to let it go, stop investing in it, and push it over.

Undoing unworthiness is our destiny and it’s also our spiritual obligation.

We’ve helped to propagate this myth of unworthiness, and we can be the ones to debunk it. We do this on behalf of all beings.

We are liberators!

In the class, it was exciting for me to see how much we all have bought into these false ideas of ourselves, and that when we join together we can see how we got to this point and how it can be undone. Victory is at hand!

We do have to have the courage to realize that we’ve built this structure of dysfunction and that we can let the Higher Holy Spirit Self tear it down. We can admit that we did build this false identity of shame and failure – and we can do it without any blame. Let the shame go.

When we Love ourselves enough to undo these patterns, the healing goes that much faster. Love is our healer.

I feel this is our spiritual responsibility, and doing it together is precious and thrilling! I’m so glad we’re doing what we can to change our minds and liberate our brothers and sisters as we liberate ourselves! Yes!

Are you interested in getting to the root cause of all your problems?
If that sounds good to you, come join us! Undoing Unworthiness starts today!

Let’s have fun lightening our load and learning through Joy!

NEW Class STARTS TODAY: Undoing Unworthiness! Stop Self-Attack NOW! A belief in unworthiness and a habit of self-attack undermines your happiness every moment of every day.

Holy Friendships

Monday, December 2nd, 2019

I’ve been blessed to share my birthday and Thanksgiving with some very dear friends I’ve known for decades and we have a good time together! There’s no fighting, no annoyances, no problems, only the pleasure of each other’s company.

What’s the secret to our friendship success?

We support each other. We actively love and support each other.

There’s no competition because there’s only love and support.

There’s no criticism because we’re focused on Love and support.It doesn’t matter that we don’t 100% agree on everything.

I used to have friends that I felt obligated to be with and to stay in touch with. I don’t have those kinds of friendships anymore. I used to organize my friendships by a set of ideas that I thought were what I should do instead of what I felt like doing.

I’m so glad I got the ego out of my friendships and put Spirit in charge!

We can have holy relationships in all of our relationships if we’re willing. I only wish that someone had told me that a very long time ago!

I also had NO idea that support was the key to friendship.

I really used to think it was more about spending time together and shared interests, but it doesn’t have to be that at all.

Another aspect of successful friendship is being able to RECEIVE support. And that does involve trust.

In my Masterful Living Course, I have the great privilege of meeting 1-on-1 with the participants, and the majority of them tell me that trust is a major issue. Anyone who has studied A Course in Miracles knows that trust is the number one characteristic of God’s Teachers. Trust is required. Trust builds faith.

It’s not so much that we trust each other – we trust Spirit IN each other.

When we decide to love and cherish the people in our lives, then the holy relationship emerges and that’s healing to everyone, most particularly those in that relationship and others nearby. Each holy relationship is a demonstration of God’s Love, and that’s healing to us all.

When we request the holy relationship, the Higher Holy Spirit Self will provide the means for us to attain it and only our willingness to BE in it is required. We cannot have a holy relationship without a willingness to offer Love and support, and life with relationships in which we’re not willing to give and receive Love and support is a life of suffering.

Being in the flow of Love and support is what we’re designed for.We are designed to be the perfect givers and receivers of Love, and that’s what friends are for.

Would you like to learn to have real trust and faith in the Spirit? If you feel inspired to join me, we’ll do it together! My “Undoing Unworthiness” class is this week, and the Masterful Living Course 2020 starts with a bonus class in 30 days on January 1st. It’s one of my favorite classes all year!

30 Days to January 1st – I share what I learned that shifted me out of my habits of spinning around in the same repeating upsets in my Masterful Living Course 2020. Registration is open NOW. I encourage you to commit now so that you have that to look forward to. At no charge, you can also book an Exploratory Call to speak with one of the Spiritual Counselors who has already done the program and they can help you be clear if this is right for you right now.

Releasing Resistance is Undoing Unworthiness

Sunday, December 1st, 2019

I used to have a MAJOR issue with feeling resistant and reluctant to move forward and make the highest and best choices for my life. So often I could be like the person who would start eating right or exercising “tomorrow.” For years I prayed to put an end to the resistance and the reluctance.

I was very aware of the resistance.
I knew the only thing there was to resist was Love.
The one thing we all don’t have too much of is Love, and yet Love is the very thing we resist the most.

Now I can see that I was resisting giving up my sense of unworthiness.

I had built a large part of my identity around not being good enough, and so if I let all that Love flow in my life I’d have to give up this carefully crafted identity of being unworthy. I didn’t want to relinquish the thing I had worked so hard to make, even though it was causing me misery.

It’s the ultimate kind of crazy that we cling to the very thing that hurts and upsets us most.

And yet, we do it in SO MANY ways – very creative ways, too.

We cling to jobs we don’t really like.
We cling to people who don’t really love us, who mistreat us and disrespect us.
We cling to ideas about ourselves that really keep us playing small while living in lack and limitation.

I felt SO FRUSTRATED by my experience of my unwillingness and resistance.

I judged myself for it, and that only made it worse.

I’ve worked with counseling clients who would argue for their limitations. When I tried to help them see there were no limitations, they would tell me I didn’t understand. They needed to be right about how wrong things were. I get it! I HAVE FELT THAT WAY TOO!

They’d defend their right to play small, EVEN THOUGH it was the very thing they came to me to help them with.

We’ve all been that crazy in some areas of our lives.

I have found the most productive path of change is to work on the core issues.

Heal the root to get new fruit. That’s my approach.

For most people, there are more ways that we perpetuate unworthiness than ways we undo it in our day-to-day living.

That’s why I like to look at things from a very practical perspective.

What can I do today to make a difference NOW?How can that contribute to inspiring me to do better in the next “now” moment?

I like to look at our choices like a spiritual budget. As with a financial budget, we have income and spending and it’s the same for our spiritual life.

When we’re depressed or unhappy, it’s like deficit spending. Income is from Spirit. The inflow of Love and inspiration is the income that uplifts us.Expenses are ego patterns and beliefs that deplete us.In order to get back in the black and start to experience the flow of Love and Prosperity, we need to stop deficit spending ASAP. Here’s how – and I know it’s obvious:

Start increasing the energy of Spirit’s Love flowing into your heart and mind.Decrease the negativity, the judgment, the blame and shame.

Do both immediately. Focus on doing some of both as quick as you can, and you’ll see a turnaround happen right away.

People don’t bother to do this because they feel unworthy.

The deep belief in unworthiness prevents people from opening to receive the Love that is already ours to receive.

We don’t feel comfortable receiving it.We take ourselves out of the way of Love.We isolate and engage in self-medication to lower our vibration so we’re no longer a vibrational match for Peace, Love, and Joy.

Isn’t it wonderful to know that we really can turn things around VERY quickly with our willingness?

I’m so grateful I found a way out of the patterns of resistance and reluctance. For me, it was a path of learning to trust. Being able to practice trust brought me faith and faith changed everything for me.

Learning to live in faith, Love, and trust taught me so much. And it led me to feel worthy. There’s so much healing that’s possible for us when we’re truly willing to PRACTICE these teachings of Love!

I believe we must commit to undoing the beliefs we have in unworthiness. We’ve trained ourselves to reinforce it and we CAN let it go – and when we do it will help ALL BEINGS to liberate. We must have the courage to choose liberation today. Now is the holy instant of our liberation.

Together we’ll undo all patterns of resistance, reluctance endplaying small.

If you feel inspired to join me we’ll do it together! My Undoing Unworthiness class is this week, and the Masterful Living Course 2020 starts with a bonus class in 30 days on January 1st. It’s one of my favorite classes all year!

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!

Spiritual Fitness

Thursday, October 17th, 2019

Cultivating the ability to GENUINELY be aware of our thoughts is to living a miraculous life what stretching and exercising are to have a healthy body. Many people satisfy themselves with reading about spirituality and listening to audios about spirituality. They don’t break a sweat. There’s no real exercise in it.

It’s like getting a gym membership, putting on your exercise outfit, going to the gym and watching everyone else workout while reading a book about what they’re doing and then listening to audio about what they did and how they did it. It’s “armchair spirituality”. We can have gain without pain, but we cannot grow without doing the inner work.

We all have a personal trainer in the Higher Holy Spirit Self, but we must be willing to do what the Trainer advises. And that Personal Trainer that we ALL have is always inviting us to be loving to ourselves, because we’re worthy of Love.

ALL are worthy.

Unworthiness is the most chronic illness that people have in this world. It attacks us mentally and emotionally – but only if we agree. It has no power if we don’t agree.

When we get triggered into feeling life is too hard and feel helpless and hopeless, that’s the time to put on our workout gear, Partner UP with our own Higher Holy Spirit Self and look at our stinking thinking.

When we get triggered, it’s important to realize that we’re being helped to release the thoughts that are being triggered. It’s time to change our minds and release our attachments to the thoughts that are upsetting us. If our thoughts are upsetting us, it’s because they aren’t true.

Anytime we believe something that’s false it upsets us, it’s our “Divine Alarm Clock” going off letting us know that it’s time for healing through that inner exercise of relinquishing the false, affirming the truth, and choosing Freedom.

I AM available for healing.

I AM grateful for every healing opportunity. I AM victorious!

Do you notice that you sometimes feel people are unworthy of Love? Do you see that pattern shifting and changing in your heart and mind? Please share in the comments section below! I’d love to know!

Growing Through Joy!

Wednesday, October 9th, 2019

Plain and simple: The things that bother me are the things that trigger a false belief. When false beliefs are triggered, I’m more likely to look at them, feel them, and give them my awareness and attention.

Awareness and attention are how I can shine the Light of Love on the dark thoughts of lack and attack.

It might seem crazy to be grateful for things that irritate us. It doesn’t make sense to be thankful to people who push our buttons, does it?

Well, I’m grateful that my willingness has shown me that what irritates me and bothers me is actually extremely helpful to me because it alerts me to where I believe something that’s false and my upset is pushing me to let it go so I can experience more Peace.

It took me a very long time to realize that the things and people that seem to upset me the most are ways that Spirit has come to help me. We can open our minds through being pushed by the pain.

When I can identify the things in my mind that are untrue and that cause my suffering, then I can place my loving attention on them and let my opinions go. This is a daily practice. It’s a moment by moment practice that is healing my mind.

It’s so tempting to say that other people are the cause of our suffering.

It’s so tempting to say that circumstances are the cause of our upset.

But no matter how strongly attached we are to the belief that our upset is caused by someone else – it’s not going to be true.

A Course in Miracles tells us that we’re never upset for the reason we think.

When we hold unloving thoughts it upsets us. It infuriates us. It frightens us. It worries us. We can open ourselves to the healing of the Higher Holy Spirit Self and transcend the limiting beliefs of the past.

Let’s claim our healing today. A powerful step is to be grateful that we can recognize an irritant as being a false belief rising into our awareness for healing. Let’s choose our healing today and be that living example of Self-Love.

It’s too difficult and punishing to continue to manage and cope with being upset when we don’t have to. Suffering is optional.

It may seem difficult to imagine that we can learn by remembering the truth instead of experience. Instead of trying to understand it, let’s simply allow the Higher Holy Spirit Self to show us the way.

We are choosing to remember the truth today.

We are choosing to grow through Joy today.

If you’d like support in doing this work of growing through Joy, please consider taking my Finding Freedom From Fear spiritual boot camp and joining with other like-minded souls who are doing the same work. I find that when we do the work together we get there faster and we laugh a lot more. It’s so much easier when we peel the layers of painful patterns together. Easier, faster, more Love, more Light, more fun, that’s the way for me!

Finding Freedom From Fear spiritual boot camp with ACIM Principles starts TOMORROW! I won’t be offering it again for about 6 months.

Self-Defense is Attack

Monday, October 7th, 2019

One mental habit that takes up a LOT of time and energy is defending ourselves. Here’s an example from an experience I witnessed years ago:

Someone says: I wish there was coffee. I’d really love a cup right now.

Defender: You never said you were going to want coffee, so I didn’t prepare for that. If you had let me know you were going to want coffee I could have gotten it for you. All you had to do is let me know, but you never said anything about coffee, even though we talked about what we’d do today three times. You never once brought it up. So, I had no way of knowing. You never said anything to me about coffee.

Someone: Right, I get it. You didn’t make any mistakes. I never thought about it until right now. It was just a thought “It would be nice to have coffee now.” It’s not a big deal. I don’t need any coffee.

Defender: It’s not my fault there’s no coffee. You never mentioned that you might want coffee. I had no idea that you might want coffee. If I’d known, I could have prepared. I would have been happy to get you some coffee and have it ready for you if I’d known, but you never said anything.

Someone: It’s cool. Not a problem. You didn’t do anything wrong.

Defender: But if you’d just told me, you could have had what you wanted. I could have done that for you. I just had no way to know because you never said anything.

Someone: I get it. Can we please stop talking about this now?

Many of us have some version of this defensive habit.

It’s another way that we can recognize that we have a deep-seated belief that we’re bad, wrong, not enough, too much, unlovable, unworthy and it’s all a big hoax.

All of that mental gymnastics takes a lot of energy and it’s wearisome to everyone involved. How do we get out of the pattern?

Here’s what I did: I simply started to notice it and to notice that when I was defending myself I didn’t feel good. My Peace felt temporarily gone. I learned to stop mid-sentence and do a u-turn.

Instead of defending myself, I started to simply take 100% responsibility for everything that was happening and eliminate all blame.

I have found that taking 100% responsibility without any blame eases my pain, and that’s a worthwhile gain!

Try it and see for yourself!

Are you SO ready to give up the self-attack and self-defense patterns? True and lasting healing is available to us when we stop blocking the flow with regrets and resentments. If you’re interested in help with that, check out my Finding Freedom Spiritual Boot camp class which starts on Thursday, October 10.

Never Too Late

Sunday, October 6th, 2019

Do you avoid people who seem stuck in their stories?

One thing that I see happens to a lot of spiritual students, myself included, is we develop aversions to people who are doing the same things we fear doing – such as complaining, whining, using negative affirmations and appearing to be stuck in their story.

We’re so afraid of sliding back down that we have forgotten the way up.

The way UP is through compassion, cultivating our loving heart and extending Love.
That’s the ONLY way.

When someone appears to be stuck in their story, whining and complaining, it’s the perfect opportunity for US to have healing and share the benefits with everyone.

My recent workshops on worthiness have made it abundantly clear that almost everyone feels, at least somewhat, unlovable and unworthy in some ways. And many, if not most, feel inherently unworthy. It’s an epidemic.

When someone is stuck in their story and speaking like a victim, even if they appear to be a bully or super confident, they may trigger our own deep sense of unworthiness — hence the aversion.

Yet, their cry for Love is our opportunity to extend Love and to be truly helpful, truly healing.

The temptation is to get away or shut them down, or make them wrong for seeming to be stuck in their story. That’s just affirming that worthiness, Love, compassion, and kindness have to be earned. It perpetuates the false belief that we’re not worthy of Love.

If we’ve shut someone down in the past, we can pray for them and bless them now. It’s never too late.

Remember what A Course in Miracles tells us at the end of Chapter V in the Text:

The Holy Spirit will undo all the consequences of my wrong decision if I let Him.

This is our healing opportunity.
Let’s take it right now.
Who can you think of that you made feel guilty, wrong or bad because of your reaction?
Bless them right now.

Choose healing for yourself and them right now.

For the longest time, I thought others were to blame for my unhappiness. When I wasn’t blaming others, I was thinking that it was because there was something wrong with me.

I felt unlovable because I’d been mean and unkind so many times.
I punished others anytime I felt threatened.
And that just affirmed how wrong I was.

Through diligent effort and great willingness, I’ve discovered that the only problem I had was that I was willing to put my opinions in between me and Spirit and between me and my fellow beings. The more I clear the way, the more I am clear that there really is no problem at all – only a belief in a problem.

Next time you feel upset, and you know it’s because of some opinion you have (about yourself or someone else) that you feel you just have to hold onto, consider this: Our opinions ALWAYS block the flow of good in our life.

We can trick ourselves into believing that we can hold a block to Love in our mind and it’s not REALLY going to make much difference. But I’ve had it proven to me, time and again, that this belief is completely false. Every opinion and every judgment is a block to Love.

Since Love is the only healer for any issue in our life, let’s get out of the way of the healing. It’s within our power when we Partner UP with the Higher Holy Spirit Self!

I’m so much happier and have so much more Freedom, not because circumstances have changed in my life, but because I’m not blocking the flow of the All Good in my mind.

I’m more in the flow, not because of circumstances changing around me, but because I’m more receptive to the All Good because I am aware that I am worthy and all are worthy. I am willing and grateful to receive from many – I am open to others helping me, teaching me, sharing with me and going with me.

Next time someone really bothers you, ask yourself “Am I actually willing to block the flow of healing, Wholeness, Prosperity, Love, Beauty, Prosperity, Harmony and JOY in my life in order to hold onto this upset?

And if you are, sit yourself down and give yourself a hug until you change your mind!

Let’s all invite the Higher Holy Spirit Self into our mind so we can carry a different tune and a higher vibration.

If we’re willing, Spirit will work through us.
Because there is only One Mind and one life
— all boats rise with our loving heart!

Spirit moves through the open door of our hearts. Spirit pauses and patiently waits at the closed door. We choose how we’ll experience this day. If your heart has been closed all day and you find yourself brushing your teeth before bed – it’s the perfect time to open to Spirit and go higher before you retire.

In a world where time and space are an illusion,
it’s never too late to change our minds.
Only the ego needs to cling to the decisions of the past.

My ability to change my mind and change my tune is a strength. The more I relinquish the false beliefs and am willing to see myself and others in perfect Wholeness, the more Beauty, Love, Prosperity, Joy, and Freedom I feel.

Having proven it to myself, I’m inspired to go all the way to awakening, Ascension, and Enlightenment. Let’s go together!

If you’d like to do this work in a class with me, my Finding Freedom class starts on Thursday, October 10.

This is the perfect time for us to do this work, as the holidays are approaching.
We can make such a difference in our own lives and in our family.
I see it every year at this time since 2008 when I first started offering this class.

I’m all in for YOU. Will you meet me and we’ll have some fun with our healing together?

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 developing trust and faith, 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!

So much healing is available to us when we stop blocking the flow with regrets and resentments. If you’re interested in help with that, check out my Finding Freedom Spiritual Boot camp class which starts on Thursday, October 10.

Shifting Into Abundance

Saturday, October 5th, 2019

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

There was a time in my life when I was deficit spending in my finances, and there was also a time I was deficit spending in terms of my happiness.

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

Many people think that the answer to debt is simply to earn more money or to cut expenses.

What I’ve definitely proven is that shifting my mind from a focus on lack and limitation to a focus on gratitude and Love was the most effective change for me to activate my Abundance.

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

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

This taught me that the answer wasn’t in the world – I learned it for REAL,and so that led to my gratitude.

I prayed for the answer and it came in the form of clarity, insight and divine guidance.

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

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

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

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

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

So much healing is available to us when we stop blocking the flow with regrets and resentments. If you’re interested in help with that, check out my Finding Freedom Spiritual Boot camp class which starts on Thursday, October 10.

Together we’re activating our Abundance – we’re going for it!

When we don’t feel connected to Spirit and supported by Spirit, or even when we fear God, it’s most likely a result of feeling unworthy.

IRS Gratitude

Friday, October 4th, 2019

God is so good! I love it when we can prove how beautiful and powerful Love is and Spirit is. I’ve been having an issue with the IRS (in case you’re not familiar, that’s the Internal Revenue Service, and they are the government office that deals with taxes) not recording a payment I sent in. I’ve been trying to get them on the phone and been held for a long period on a number of occasions.

This morning I decided to give it another go and set aside a couple of hours for the process. I asked the angels to help me and, in particular, to help me have a good connection with whomever I talked to at the IRS. I called in at 8 a.m. and got a recording that said the office was closed and would reopen at 7 a.m.. Strange. I called back a few times and finally got into the system. I waited 90 minutes to talk to someone.

The gentlemen who answered the phone, Mr. Martin, at first sounded as though he was absolutely miserable. He sounded exactly like the old cartoon character Droopy Dog. I was happy to talk with him, though. Over the next 40 minutes or so, he answered all my questions, was extremely helpful, he was kind, and he also completely changed his attitude within the first few minutes.

I was not against him, I was for him. I made it very clear that he was helping me and I appreciated it. At the end of the call I thanked him again, and said I was so glad that he was the one I got to speak to and I was thankful for all of his help. He was happy at that point, and I can tell it was a really good start to his day. Mutual kindness, respect, and support – that’s what our call was about.

I love when that happens!

I am grateful to the angels who are always so helpful.

I am grateful that I remember to ask for help.

I am grateful that when I’m willing to prove that Spirit is always for me and never against me, I will be shown this is true.

And I’m grateful that I can be a loving and uplifting presence if I choose to be!

When we don’t feel connected to Spirit and supported by Spirit, or even when we fear God, it’s most likely a result of feeling unworthy. If you suspect that worthiness is your issue, then you might consider receiving my gift. My “Worthiness Workshop” this past weekend was such a hit, that I’m offering it again this week.

Clear the Fear

Thursday, October 3rd, 2019

A Course in Miracles teaches us that “There are no private thoughts.” This is the same as many other mystical teachings. This is exactly what I learned as a student of Ernest Holmes teachings in The Science of Mind.

There is but One Mind, and all of our minds are joined in that One Mind. We can’t possibly have a private thought when all of our minds are joined in the One Mind and yet, we still often find ourselves operating as though we can keep our thoughts hidden or secret. We can’t.

The incredibly good news is that we can CHANGE our mind and hold only loving and compassionate thoughts. When our mind is attuned to the loving thoughts and focused on that, then we will see the results in our life. I call it “working in the invisible.” It’s so much easier to work in the mind than to work in the world.

I call laboring in the world “pushing density” because it feels exhausting, whereas working in the mind, when we’re focused on Love, is exhilarating! It’s energizing!

You can always tell who is operating from Love and who isn’t. It’s obvious. Words aren’t necessary. We don’t need private thoughts. They are useless.

The more I choose the loving thought, the more I don’t care if everyone knows everything I’m thinking. And I’m not afraid of what other people think, because my thoughts are of Love. Isn’t that wonderful? It’s very simple too.

When our thoughts are unloving, that’s when we fear that other people will know what we’re thinking. The end of fear comes when we focus on being loving. When we’re fully committed to being loving, then there simply is nothing to fear.

It’s amazing to realize that allowing the good to flow in our lives is incredibly simple, and we complicate it and obscure it by choosing to believe the meaning we’ve made of things when we don’t have to. Thank God we can always choose again.

ACIM calls our heart the altar. Let’s clear off all the false idols that we’ve laid upon the altar of our heart and open to true Love now.

What are false idols?
Anything that we’ve made more important than our connection with Spirit.

It could be any one of your relationships or even your body.
It could be your job or your house.

If you’re feeling fearful at all and you really wish to be free of worry, fear, and anxiety, the answer is simple. It’s not easy, but it’s simple. Give the attack thoughts to the Higher Holy Spirit Self and open your heart to appreciating the good in your life. Count your blessings and it will shift your thinking.

We’re loving ourselves free of all fear and limitation!

When we don’t feel connected to Spirit and supported by Spirit, or even when we fear God, it’s most likely a result of feeling unworthy.

Connection

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019

We all have fear and anxiety about things. The cause of fear and anxiety is always some kind of insecurity. The insecurity, itself, is essentially because we believe we’re disconnected from our Source, pure loving Spirit.

The antidote is to reconnect. The disconnect is only in our minds. It is an illusion and delusion that has no basis in fact. The fact is that we are part of God, now and forever.

When you feel fear or anxiety about something – a job interview, a tax audit, a doctor’s appointment, or any other thing, reach for Spirit first.

If you’ve got a difficulty to deal with, put Spirit in charge and then listen.

Pray first.

Call the angels, Jesus, Mother Mary, Quan Yin and any other Being you think can help and support you.

Be willing to give to Spirit any and all attack thoughts you have. Give them UP for healing and let the healing happen.

After all, the reason that we feel upset is that you have this false belief. This situation in our life that’s triggering the false belief is sent to help us deal with the false belief by choosing to heal it, rather than affirming it. WE get to choose how we will handle it.

In our choosing, we can shift everything.

That’s why I have learned the benefit of looking to see the highest and best, most loving choice whenever I feel concerned.

When I’m willing to find a more loving choice, I do.

Choosing Love is healing.
Choosing Love is the cure for every concern.

We can only learn this through practice.
It’s the practice of connecting with Spirit that heals our mind and our life.

When we don’t feel connected to Spirit and supported by Spirit, or even when we fear God, it’s most likely a result of feeling unworthy. If you suspect that worthiness is your issue, then you might consider receiving my gift. My “Worthiness Workshop” this past weekend was such a hit that I’m offering it again this week.

Guilty

Tuesday, October 1st, 2019

A Course in Miracles tells us that increasing a sense of guilt is what our special love relationships are all about. It tells us that our special love relationships are relationships that are actually backward. Instead of unconditional Love, there’s co-dependency, which is conditional love. This kind of relationship only increases our suffering, because we become so attached to the other person validating us.

In the special love relationship, we are attracted to the person who affirms our false identity. That’s not Love. It’s a poor substitute.

In our special relationships, we begin by being so glad and excited that someone is affirming our specialness, but we know that if someone’s not seeing our true identity they aren’t loving our True Self, only the false self. Deep down, we know it’s a poor arrangement.

If we don’t show our True Self how can someone ever really Love us?

If we present a false self in our relationships – one that we think is more likable than our True Self, and if we hide how we feel, so people don’t even know what’s going on with us, won’t we actually be preventing others from loving us?

The shift happens when we love ourselves.

In the false, fake, special relationship, our upset is a display to manipulate others into feeling guilty for having upset us.

Is it Love if we’re manipulating someone to do what we’d like?

Do you wish to be in a relationship with someone who blames their upset on you and then tries to make you feel guilty for it?

The way out of this pain is to take responsibility for our upsets. It helps to be able to be transparent about how we feel and to not blame anyone.

There’s such a great reward when we can let people Love us. It’s one of the reasons why we love dogs so much. We allow them to Love us, and it makes them so happy!

When we allow others to Love us there’s a healing that happens for everyone because Love is our healer!

Joining with others is part of why I love being a Spiritual Counselor and why I love training spiritual counselors and empowering them. (Please consider working with one of the Spiritual Counselors I’m training – you can book a session on a donation basis – look here: http://jenniferhadley.com/spiritual-counselors/)

When our relationships are ego-based, it’s probably a worthiness issue that generates the suffering inside those relationships. If you suspect that worthiness is your issue, then you might consider receiving my gift. My “Worthiness Workshop” this past weekend was such a hit that I’m offering it again this week.

Gracious Receiver

Monday, September 30th, 2019

For years I blocked the flow of Prosperity in my life, and I didn’t even realize it. Some of my loved ones had labeled me as selfish, and so I began to think that was true. Many folks I met believed it was “better to give than to receive.” And so, I began to believe that it was BAD to receive. I began to notice that many people gave with strings attached. Sometimes those strings were simply expectations.

I couldn’t stand all those strings and expectations. I didn’t like believing that I was selfish. So, I began to strive to be independent and not need things from people. I became a hesitant receiver, and sometimes even a poor receiver.

People would try to give me help or assistance, gifts, and other things, and I would reject them, fearing the strings and expectations. I preferred not to owe anyone. I preferred to feel free. I didn’t know that I wasn’t free. I was in a box of unworthiness and didn’t even realize it.

I’d become a really poor receiver. I was a great giver and a poor receiver.

And then, I started to have really intense financial challenges and I had no idea how to get out of them. With the help of my Spiritual Practitioner, I began to work on praying to be receptive.

I began to reorient myself to be a good and gracious receiver.

I began to think of it this way: Everything I receive is from God and everything I give I give to God.

It doesn’t really matter who is giving or who is receiving – it’s all about being in the flow of the All-Good.

I learned to be able to give to anyone when I felt called and not do it from obligation. I learned to receive from anyone and not feel an attachment.

I began to experience more affluence, more Abundance and more Prosperity right away.

Are you a good receiver? Start to make an inquiry into your giving and receiving abilities. If you’re not feeling the flow, maybe you’re not willing to receive? Take a look and see what you find in your heart!

One way to increase receptivity was shared to me by a friend and it really works. Try this: start to dress up more and present yourself in a more attractive way (of course that’s subjective, but do what works for YOU), and then people will likely give you compliments. Another way is to be more helpful to people, and people naturally will say thank you.

Notice if you can easily receive the compliments and the appreciation. Do you feel tempted to push the praise away or minimize it? You can practice saying “thank you” to those who compliment you. I like to say, “Thank you, I feel great, too!” when someone compliments my appearance.

When someone appreciates what I’ve done, I can say “It’s my pleasure.”

Being a graceful receiver is a good skill to have.
It affirms our worthiness. And that’s helpful.

If you’d like to be more abundant, be a great receiver!
All blessings come from Spirit, no matter what form they take.

I’m A God Geek

Sunday, September 29th, 2019

I know I’m a “God Geek”. Folks in my classes like to laugh at me because I tell them the story about how, back in the 90’s when I was in classes at Agape and my first Prayer Partner, Liz Raci and her husband Paul — who was also in classes with me — would invite me over for a barbecue on Memorial Day and Labor Day, and I asked them if I could come over early.

I’d say, “How about if I come early and help set up, and we can talk about God before everyone arrives?”

Yup, that was me.

The honest to God reason that I became a Science of Mind Practitioner, a Spiritual Counselor, a Minister, and a teacher is so that I could be in this conversation with and about Spirit all of the time. Nothing is more interesting to me. I always find it interesting.

It’s why I write daily inspiration and offer my A Course in Miracles podcast, all the workshops and classes as a gift. I love it. It’s my Joy!

Yesterday, I offered my Worthiness Workshop and we had about 100 people who came live to work with me on this issue. It was exciting! (If you missed it, come today. Click to register now.)

I had an experience similar to what I have when I offer a retreat. Usually in the first 24 hours, a number of people will come to me privately and pull me aside and say, “Jennifer, I had no idea other people felt this way. I thought I was the only one. I mean, I REALLY believed I was the only one who felt this way.”

This is so important to me!

For years, I thought I was the only one who was so messed up.

As spiritual students, we are much MORE judgmental of ourselves than non-spiritual students. We have higher standards, and when we don’t meet them we feel even worse. We beat ourselves up even more for failing as a spiritual student.

I’d like to put an end to all of that in our community. Enough! It’s not helpful. Self-attack has got to go!

Self-attack and special relationships are the two best weapons of the ego to keep us from rising in Love. Enough!

Yesterday, most of the people who came to the workshop had invested themselves in doing my worksheet. That, plus our coming together, talking and sharing, helped people to make the decision to really put attention on this issue to change their lives. That was SO EXCITING!

As ACIM students, we know the power of decision. There’s no way we can fill out that worksheet, do my workshop, and still be in the dark about what our belief in unworthiness is costing us every day. This is so valuable!

We CAN have healing EVERY DAY if we’re willing. A little bit every day adds up to a lot!

Have you ever had a faucet that had a slow drip? Put a bucket under it and you’ll realize how fast a slow drip can fill up a bucket!

Here are some of the things that people said to me in the workshop yesterday after we did some of the work together:

“That was awesome!!!! Totally Divine!”

“So beautiful talking to the wonderful participants!”

“Very inspiring and miraculous!”

“I loved it!”

“Yay! inspiring to share in the healing and the miracle!”

Many of us made a decision to put this issue first in our life and stop avoiding it. People were inspired to take action.

WOW! This is what excites me more than ANYTHING. We only did a little bit of work together. This is the difference when we ACTUALLY DO THE WORK instead of just listening to a lecture or a podcast, or read it in a book.

Studying isn’t healing.
Doing the work is actually healing.

That’s what inspired me to offer this Worthiness Workshop in the first place! And I’m offering it again today. Even if you cannot join today – register to get my worksheet and fill it out. If you can come today, please see if you can fill out the worksheet before coming to the workshop.

We enjoyed the work yesterday. It was exciting! Transformation is REALLY fun and it’s also a huge relief when we do it together. It’s such a relief to let go of the false identity and stand in the beauty of our true nature. We truly can be helpful and we can teach only Love. I’m going for it. Come join me!

Let’s make the most of every opportunity for our healing and awakening and remember to laugh when we forget. 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 developing trust and faith,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!

Worthiness Revolution

Saturday, September 28th, 2019

Today is my first Worthiness Workshop (you’re invited – it’s my gift to you!) and there’s another one tomorrow. I feel so jazzed about doing this workshop, because I know it’s the core issue for all of us. Every single one of us has worthiness issues, and I absolutely love when we come together to heal these things that destroy our happiness.

I’m often amazed how longtime spiritual teachers will say things like, “I’m so stupid.” Self-attack, the thing that cements the unworthiness on us, is something many are trained to do as children. It hurts my heart that parents can be so cruel to their children, and yet it happens all the time. It’s so common.

Parents are cruel to children. Children grow up being cruel to themselves and attracting “friends” who are cruel to them, and then spouses who are mean, as well. And all throughout, they think they deserve it. It’s not true, but that’s what many believe.

Everyone is brilliant in one way or another and not so brilliant in other ways. Everyone.
Everyone is lovable, even if the choices they make aren’t.

I’d like to see what we can do to end unworthiness in our lifetime.

I would like to see a worthiness revolution take place in our hearts and minds and spread all around the world.

I hope you’ll be inspired to participate!

If you find that self-attack is a part of your experience and you’ve had enough of it, then please join me this weekend!

We Don’t Have to Earn It

Friday, September 27th, 2019

I’ve been preparing for the Worthiness Workshops this weekend (you’re invited – it’s my gift to you!) and it’s been so clear to me that this issue of self-worth and worthiness is the major issue we have. It’s no different than the issue of believing in separation. Our worth comes from our unity with each other and with Spirit.

Our worth comes from being “part of God” as it says in A Course in Miracles. If we believe we’re separate then, of course, we have to get our self-worth the “new-fashioned” way – we have to EARN it. Or, so we think.

Let’s stop energizing this idea that we have to earn our self-worth.

Let’s not teach it to our children. Let’s liberate. Let’s set ourselves free from these limiting beliefs.

We do have to be willing to lay these beliefs aside.
We do have to accept that ALL are worthy of Love.

This week I was sharing in Masterful Living Class that my vow to see my counseling clients as perfect, whole, and complete forced me to see the truth of them. It forced me to stop judging people and see them correctly. Being able to do that, I was finally able to see myself as a whole, perfect, and complete, too.

Everyone we meet is actually a messenger from the Divine reminding us to see the perfection and the Wholeness. Every being on this planet is sent for our salvation. Let’s really be grateful for that AND choose salvation.

If you find that self-attack is a part of your experience and you’ve had enough of it, then please join me this weekend!

Clear-Sighted

Thursday, September 26th, 2019

One thing I’ve noticed is that we don’t see what we cannot see. I used to get so annoyed with people because they weren’t observing what, to me, was so obvious.

It was frustrating to me that people couldn’t get things – all kinds of things – that seemed so completely obvious and “in your face” apparent. It seemed to me just plain willful ignorance.

Now I’m able to realize that we just cannot see what we’re not a vibrational match for.

For instance, some people can see so many ways and opportunities to be helpful, and they can tell whether it’s their call to do something or let it be and hold the high watch.

Some people can see that people are challenged and can use some encouragement, and some people just see someone in their way.

Some people can see that someone is being so very kind and helpful to a stranger and others won’t even notice what’s occurring.

This is what Jesus was referring to when he talked about having “the eyes to see and the ears to hear.” Our gifts and answered prayers can be right under our nose, but if we cannot recognize them, how would we know they’re there?

Many times when I’m working or writing intensely, people can come in the room I’m in and start to do things for many minutes before they recognize I’m there. They’re startled by my presence. I can’t say for certain what it’s about, but I do feel there are times when I turn on a cloaking device in order to avoid being interrupted, and many times people can’t even see me when I’m right there.

It’s a powerful and helpful skill to be able to recognize what’s going on around us without getting caught in the difficulties people are having. I won’t join people in worry and upset. And, I’ve learned when to offer a hand and when not to.

Cultivating the ability to discern what’s really going on is VERY worthwhile. It comes naturally when we’re willing to give up all attachment to judging and labeling. It’s a magnificent trade – opinion for truth! Let’s begin today!

Spiritual Career

Wednesday, September 25th, 2019

I’ve known so many people over the years who have had such a strong desire to earn a living sharing their passion for spirituality, and some of them have actually followed their heart and done what they felt called to do. But many have not. They’re playing small, and they know it. It hurts.

When I first started in ministerial school, in our very first gathering, a weekend retreat, we were told that the majority of the people who were in our program would probably never follow through and have a career as a minister.

It made sense to me. Feelings of unworthiness stop so many people, it’s crazy! It is true insanity for any of us to believe that we’re unworthy of following our calling. Honestly, it doesn’t actually make sense.

Think about it. As an example, let’s imagine that you have the talent and the ability to be an amazing dancer. What if you felt unworthy of dancing, so you just never did any dancing? Or you only danced by yourself and never with other people? Do you see what I mean?

We are already imbued with everything we need to live our calling, whatever it is.

Every career path can be a spiritual path, if we look at it correctly.

I meet people all the time who are helpers along the way. Their job may not seem very spiritual, but they bring their best to it and do their work in a loving way that is inspiring to me and others.

In other words, any job can be a spiritual one if we approach it that way.

Isn’t that wonderful to realize? I am so grateful!
