Vision of Freedom

Saturday, December 21st, 2019

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

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

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

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

“I have a dream …”

King had a vision.

It’s the vision of Freedom ringing through our hearts, our minds, our nation, and the world.

Freedom from tyranny, injustice, and prejudice.

The Freedom to fully Love and accept our brothers and sisters.

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

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

Now is the time for us to fully commit to doing what we came here for – hold the highest and best for EVERYONE.

Release all patterns of lack and attack and stand in the Light of Love.

This is our purpose.

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

Together we discover Love really is the ONLY answer that forever transforms and heals every aspect of our lives.

This is the kind of work we do in Masterful Living. It’s deeply healing to us individually and to the others around us because we share the same mind.

Are you SO ready to have a new experience in the new year? We’re doing the deep transformation and the healing is happening in our lives! If you’d like to join me in my yearlong Masterful Living Course 2020, then please click here to learn more now.

Loving Compassion

Friday, December 20th, 2019

I am profoundly grateful. Where I once felt this life was impossible to enjoy and difficult to even withstand, I have come to a place where I can authentically say I absolutely L-O-V-E this life. I never imagined that would ever be possible for me. The shift came because of my spiritual practice.

I have come to see that my feelings of anger and near-constant outrage were a cry for Love. All my anger outbursts, snarky remarks, and unkind comments were a plea for help from one who was drowning in fear.

Love was my answer.

Here’s the one realization that changed everything for me: I was willing to believe that there was no hatred, no hurt, no anger, and no fear that I had that couldn’t be met and healed by Love if I was willing to let Love rule my heart. I was willing to let Spirit guide me there.

Now, I have the absolute JOY of sharing with others.

In the past month, I’ve had the great honor and pleasure of talking 1-on-1 with folks in Masterful Living this year. We do end of the year sessions where we meet one on one so I can learn about how they’re doing three times per year. For the most part, our conversations at this time of year are harvest and a celebration.

Sometimes when I hear the breakthroughs, shifts, changes, healing, and transformation that they’ve gone through and the healing in their family, their body, their workplace, I cannot help but join them in tears of gratitude.

This is the power of Self-Love and compassion. Love is the answer.

Compassion is Love for those who have temporarily lost touch with their Divine Nature.

When I live compassionately, then I am a healing presence wherever I go and I KNOW it. I feel it. In our society, we’re taught that it’s not easy to have compassion, but I am here to tell you that it is much easier to have compassion than it is to be filled with resentment. I know, because I’ve hated those who were angry and cruel to me. I’ve hated myself for not doing better. I’ve worked with it for many, many years. In a sense, it is my life’s work.

The healing power of Love never ceases to amaze me and blow me away.

If you think that your situation is beyond hope, I can tell you that I’ve felt that way, and I have worked with so many others who have felt that way. It’s not the bottom. Giving up is the bottom.

Love never gives up on us. Let’s not give up on Love. Love is the answer.
Love is our healer.

Compassion is loving understanding.

And this is the place to take a stand for the holidays. There’s a power in being completely committed to being compassionate during this time of celebrating Christ.

Living compassionately requires a deep commitment. Every day, I’m still discovering the answer to the question “How do I BE the Peace I’d like to see in the world, and in my family, in my workplace?”

Over and over again, the answer comes when I am offered the opportunity to prove my commitment to Peace by choosing compassion.

Initially, it was very challenging. There are still times when I have to be with myself for a moment before I can trade compassion for judgments, but that is more and more rare and I’m grateful.

For more than thirty years, I’ve cultivated a practice of looking deeply into anger to find where I feel hurt. The answer to “How do I find compassion?” arrives when I look at the one who has been hurtful and see where they too have been hurt and their anger is a cry for my compassion. Anyone’s anger is evidence of their feelings of hurt and fear.

I mustn’t look away. My own healing lies in my ability to see with eyes of Love and extend the heart of compassion. Since Love is the healer, I allow Love to do the heavy lifting. All I have to do is show up, be awake and not run away, judge or defend. It’s not easy, but Love leads and I follow the path of Love.

This deep practice requires my willingness and my attention. It requires vigilance. There is a deep sense of Wholeness that accompanies increased my commitment to my practice of compassion. It reminds me that I am fulfilling my life’s purpose: to Love.

In my deepest heart-aching challenges, I’ve learned to ask: “What am I to do?” So often the answer is, “Extend the Love, be compassionate. Be willing to understand with the heart.” I’ve also had to ask myself “Why ask the question if I’m unwilling to hear the answer?” It has take tremendous discipline for me to stay and not run. And now, that discipline of Love is my strength. Love heals.

I used to have a practice of judgment and criticism. I was an expert and an authority on how to judge people. It was a very good place for me to start my practice of compassion. Today, when I look back I smile and think how profoundly I’ve changed, who knew? The Higher Holy Spirit Self knew.

I’m so deeply grateful that I made a commitment to a daily practice of loving compassion – including Self-compassion. It’s the road less traveled, but all of the people I meet on the road are beautiful. I answer their call for help with Love and they answer my call to find more ways to be compassionate.

Together we discover Love really is the ONLY answer that forever transforms and heals every aspect of our lives.

This is the kind of work we do in Masterful Living. It’s deeply healing to us individually and to the others around us because we share the same mind.

Good Fortune

Thursday, December 19th, 2019

Yesterday I flew from Arizona to New Jersey and, as usual, there was good learning all the way and I am grateful. Full of gratitude, am I.

Because I fly so often, and because I use airline credit cards and rack up the miles, I get to go in the priority line even though I’m not first class. Well, for the first time ever, the woman behind the counter was measuring my bag. This is actually my 3rd bag of this exact kind.

I travel so much that I’ve gone through two of these bags before the one I currently have. I’ve flown with this bag on American Airlines too many times to count, but it would be safe to say that it could be 50 times.

For whatever reason, the woman who checked my bags measured it and made me adjust it so that it was just a bit smaller and met the airline standards. First time for that. It took about 10 minutes or so to accomplish. I don’t know what anything is for, but I do know everything is helpful.

Later, as I was getting some food, prior to my flight and waiting for a coffee, I got boxed in by an airline employee who was helping a woman in a wheelchair. She was getting food and a coffee, just like me. They were blocking me from leaving the restaurant, and I was completely happy to wait until they had everything they needed before I could exit.

Now, here’s the thing — because I was standing there waiting for the woman to get her coffee and add the milk and sugar, I happened to notice that she didn’t properly put the lid back on her coffee. I pointed it out to her. If I hadn’t been there, she most assuredly would have spilled that scalding hot all down her front.

Was that why I was delayed at the counter with the repeated measuring of my suitcase? I don’t know for sure, but I could be.

How could I really KNOW what the reason for my delay was? Yet, I did feel that it was so I could be there to help this woman avoid spilling the coffee on herself.

Had I been able to check my bag easily and quickly, as usual, I would’ve left the restaurant before that woman came in. We don’t know what anything is for, but if we’re willing, we can rest assured that everything always works together for our good and the good of all, because we’re One with them.

Everything is a blessing if we’re willing to see it properly.

That’s the trick.

Is there anything going on in your life that you’ve been thinking isn’t a blessing?

Would you be willing to change your mind about it in order to receive the blessing that is most assuredly encoded into it?

All through the holidays, we get to choose Heaven or hell with each choice we make.

One Step at a Time

Wednesday, December 18th, 2019

This week in Masterful Living we’ve been harvesting the benefits of our spiritual practice this year, noticing how much our loved ones have also been changed simply because we decided to stop judging them and start really loving and supporting them.

There are only two choices in each moment: Oneness or separation. If you aspire to make the world a better place, choose Oneness.

We train ourselves to look for a loving choice.

In order to choose Oneness consistently, you can train yourself to let go of cherishing the thoughts of lack and attack.

Align with thoughts of Love, letting go of all judgments and learn to trust the Divine.

It’s a way of living that is deeply transformative.

It can be so challenging.

When you have proven yourself to be untrustworthy over and over and OVER again, how do you learn to trust God? One choice at a time.

When it seems like God doesn’t deliver the goods, and God isn’t the perfect delivery service of your happiness no matter how much you beg and suffer, you may be so angry and resentful that you refuse to trust – in order to punish God for being such a withholding God. Been there. Done that. Ugh.

There’s hardly one of us that hasn’t had these thoughts about God. We make stuff up and believe it to be true, and then operate as though the lie is the truth.

Enough of that madness!
I choose my healing!

The greatest gift you can give to yourself is to be willing to practice choosing Love and Unity instead of attack and separation.

Be willing to have a new experience. Be willing to give yourself a gift this coming year.

Each year in my yearlong Masterful Living Course people demonstrate how much benefit a little bit of willingness consistently cultivated can bring. Year after year, people tells me they are SURPRISED at their results. That’s what they tell me.

They are GRATEFUL – at how much their life and their feeling about themselves can change in just one year.
It’s miraculous. It’s not magical – they do the work to get the results.

They take one step at a time.

I know this when it comes to spiritual practice — if we’re successful by even a little – there’ll be more Light in our lives and everyone else’s. Your vibration will be lifted and you’ll begin to silently broadcast the message: “It can be done and I AM doing it.”

There is that within you which knows how to do this.

I wonder, is there such thing as blind faith? To live in the trust is to SEE by faith. Faith lights the way and the path is known and firm, even when it’s narrow. Walk the talk today and you will truly see.

We choose our healing. We live by grace. We walk in faith.

Love lights our way.

All through the holidays, we get to choose Heaven or hell with each choice we make. If you find the holidays difficult, if you struggle with old family patterns, if you’re feeling you’d like to really have a breakthrough then you might find my F* Me Here Come the Holidays free class helpful.

Recognizing the Spiritual Bypass

Tuesday, December 17th, 2019

Sometimes, as spiritual students, we do a “spiritual bypass.” If we’re experiencing something challenging and we jump right over our feelings to get to the spiritual truth, then we’re doing a “spiritual bypass.”

When our feelings don’t seem very spiritual, there’s a temptation to jump up into our head and intellectualize our experience rather than just have our feelings. That’s when we’re responding from the intellect, engaged by the ego and thinking of what’s right and wrong, looking to fix things. It’s not helpful. And our feelings can help us recognize what we’re doing so we can make a higher choice.

I’ve had to learn how to respond with compassion rather than the judgment that is the undercurrent of seeing someone as needing fixing, needing help. I’ve had to learn how to respond with my heart rather than the intellect. My emotions of upset help me to recognize that I’m not in alignment and I can make a higher choice – and that’s actually being more loving with myself – and that’s going to bring forth healing.

Recognizing my feelings brings healing.

It takes a great willingness to be present and to be vulnerable in order to respond with the heart rather than the intellect. And all it requires is our willingness to let Spirit lead us.

It’s enough to just be willing to be willing.

A little willingness is enough.

Have you ever felt that someone came to you with their suffering and you went right into fixing them and right into the intellect? I have. I have experienced it being done to me and I have done it to others, and both feel painful.

When we don’t have compassion for our own suffering then we treat others the way we treat ourselves – seeing them as having a problem that needs to be fixed. Then they usually respond with feeling hurt and offended.

In this way, we get to see how we’re treating ourselves and why we’re so unhappy. We can witness how it feels to be treated as though we have a problem and are defective by observing how others feel when we talk to them from our intellect to their intellect, rather than heart to heart.

Have you ever berated yourself when you’re having a difficult time and feel afraid? I have.

Isn’t it crazy that we would ever think for one second that chastising ourselves would somehow be a worthwhile choice?

Have you ever “should” all over someone because of your own insecurities? I HAVE!

And I’ve done it to myself! Most of us have tried to manipulate ourselves with the “shoulds”.

As I said, I had to LEARN how to respond with Love and compassion.

It’s worth learning.
It wasn’t easy for me.
It’s worth learning.

If you can relate, be willing to pay attention next time someone comes to you for comfort and notice if you go to the heart or the intellect.

Do you try to fix them or solve their problems?

If you chose “fix them” then you can recognize that you’re actually affirming they have a problem. This is why they might reject that judgment and, in the process, it may seem like they’re rejecting you.

This has been HUGE learning for me and I’m so grateful I can share it.

Our feelings help us to recognize what’s really going on. Live and learn! Learn to Live!

All through the holidays, we get to choose Heaven or hell with each choice we make.

Infinite Compassion

Monday, December 16th, 2019

When I feel blasted by storms of emotions and drama, whether it’s of my own making or someone else’s, my spiritual practice of nonjudgment and nonviolence is my rock. It’s a haven of Infinite Patience and Love inside my own mind. It’s the practice that brings me back to Peace so quickly. I’m so grateful for that!

So often, I see folks do things that make no sense except that people are suffering and they’ve lost perspective. People are deliberately unkind; they’re selfish and hurtful. People respond without thinking and are rude. People are discouraging when they could be encouraging. My practice of nonviolence forces me to look at my motivations and intentions, and to consistently choose the most loving intention regardless of where my emotions are.

Nonviolence is a practice of Infinite Compassion.

It is the daily practice of walking in God’s Shoes. Just as that farm girl from Kansas put on the ruby slippers and remembered her personal power that could take her back home, my personal practice of nonviolence takes me back home to the spiritual truth of all life: I am One with all that is.

If I hate the one who hates, I’ve lost my power. I’m wearing their shoes and they can never fit. If I am rude to the one who is rude, I am living someone else’s pain.

If I have no compassion for the one who has no compassion, I am spending my precious energy magnifying someone else’s hurt.

Every moment I choose whose shoes I’ll stand-in. Every moment I can choose anew and change the course of my life. When I make the highest choice I can reach for at the moment, I lift the world.

 

Mother Teresa taught us, “People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway … Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough. Give the best you’ve got anyway.

When I look at Mother Teresa’s life and the lives of Buddha, Jesus, St. Francis, Gandhi, King, and Thich Nhat Hanh, I see the power in their moment- to-moment practice of choosing Love in much more difficult circumstances than I’ve ever faced. I choose to carry close to me this awareness of those who went before me. This is my ruby slipper practice. In every moment, I remember my intention to Love and I am that. How grateful I am that no matter where I am, no matter what is happening in and around me, I can have a ruby slipper moment and come home to my heart.

Today I walk in God’s Shoes. I see with God’s Eyes. I stand in the loving intention of those teachers who went before me and I AM grateful for their example.

Infinite Compassion is the practice that takes me home to Peace.

All through the holidays, we get to choose Heaven or hell with each choice we make.

Spiritualization of the Ego

Sunday, December 15th, 2019

Greetings to you from Scottsdale, Arizona. I’ve really been enjoying my time in the desert and time with my Prayer Partners for the last 22 years. It’s such a blessing when we can get together to have fun, to pray, and to share deeply and authentically – not to mention to play board games, have great food, go for hikes and enjoy the sunset.

It’s nice to have a break and some fun, because the last 7 days have been a DOOZY for many people. Old ugly patterns of thinking and feeling have been coming up into our awareness so that we could choose our healing. For many people, it was about feeling extreme self-criticism. We were talking about this in Masterful Living this week. Many felt that negative thought patterns of anxiety and self-criticism were coming up to the surface in a way that felt overwhelming. Almost like a pimple getting ready to pop.

And then came the full moon in the middle of the week, and that really turned up the inner emotional pressure on things. Did you feel it?

The energy of any full moon is one of releasing that which is no longer helpful and harvesting the learning from our experience. This week sure offered us that opportunity.

That night it took me hours to go to sleep. Fortunately, I’ve learned to take that time to pray and simply be at Peace with not sleeping.

I’ve learned that the main thing for me to focus on is blessing my brothers and sisters, knowing the truth about them, and then secondarily, to be grateful for my life and grateful that I can effectively pray – that I have an effective spiritual practice, and so I don’t have to feel worried or afraid and it doesn’t matter whether I sleep or not.

Prayer is restorative even when I’m praying for others.

Why?

Because when I know the truth for anyone, I know the truth for everyone, and that includes me because there is only one. There is only everyone. If I pray for one person, all are included because we’re one, united and inseparable. My prayer for my Self is a prayer for you and vice versa.

Isn’t that beautiful?

I enjoy praying, and I have so many people to pray for, that being in prayer is a sweet way to invest the time when sleep doesn’t come. Although I wasn’t sleeping, I was prayerfully resting which is SO restorative and I woke up feeling refreshed, even though I had much less sleep.

Holiday times can be painfully stressful. During these pressured days, old unhealed emotional and mental patterns come up for healing almost daily. And don’t we know it!! We can have healing if we choose it.

When we partner UP with our Higher Holy Spirit Self and strengthen our spiritual practice we’ll have healing.

When we complain, we’ll feel the pain.

This is true for all of us.

Why sabotage ourselves by self-inflicting pain when we have so much to gain?

Let us turn every painful moment into a transformational healing experience by choosing to deepen our practice of choosing Love and Partnering UP.

An effective spiritual practice has transformed my life. I invested a lot of energy chasing spiritual information and stuffing my intellect with it – that has not helped me at all, not one little bit of it.

Instead, I distracted my self by pursuing spiritual information rather than spiritual insight. I distracted myself by training to be more perfect instead of recognizing my inherent perfection.

I’m so glad I finally came to my senses and focused on cultivating a spiritual practice that would help me to liberate from the intellect and free my mind from distractions.

All through the holidays, we get to choose Heaven or hell with each choice we make. If you find the holidays difficult, if you struggle with old family patterns, if you’re feeling you’d like to really have a breakthrough then you might find my F* Me Here Come the Holidays free class helpful. (The “F” is for forgiveness.)

You can sign up now for this free class offering this week.

When there are healing opportunities available to us and we don’t choose them, and instead repeat the past, we begin to feel discouraged and downtrodden but we may not know why.

When our Spirit is working so intently to support us in having the breakthroughs we desire, and we choose to ignore them or let them pass us by, it eats away at our self-esteem. Even if we don’t even consciously know it. And that causes more issues.

So, let’s choose healing and not delay another day.

Let’s stop spiritualizing the ego.

Extending Love is healing.

Reading books is not healing.

Not that reading books is bad – not at all – but it’s not enough.

Forgiveness is healing.

Choosing Love is healing.

Choosing patience, kindness, generosity of heart, and willingness is healing.

A Course in Miracles is crystal clear about how we bring on our healing breakthrough to live a happy and harmonious life. Still, many people study ACIM and other spiritual teachings without actually applying the teachings and so they don’t receive the healing benefits.

Trading Grievances for Miracles

Saturday, December 14th, 2019

Don’t give up before the miracle. When the going gets tough and it seems like things just won’t go your way, it’s so tempting to give up and go into self-medication, despair and depression, or yet another distraction. Don’t we all already know that?

A Course in Miracles tells us that all doubt is self-doubt.

When we place our trust and faith in the ego, there will ALWAYS be doubt. It’s actually that simple.

Lesson 77 of ACIM is “I am entitled to miracles.”

A miracle is when we shift our mind to the Holy Spirit’s way of thinking and away from the ego’s thought system of lack and limitation.

7 is the number of truth.
77 is a master number (a double-digit number that repeats itself like 11, 22, 33 are all master numbers) and it represents freedom of expression.

The 7th day of the week is the day of the Seventh Ray, which is the Violet Flame of Freedom and forgiveness.

Do you notice how everything is working together – and that everything in this world is symbolic? The invisible is speaking to us all the time. We are never alone.

Part of the Lesson 77 practice is:
I will not trade miracles for grievances.
I want only what belongs to me.

God has established miracles as my right.

When it’s tempting to energize a grievance then, in essence, we’re giving up on God.

Let’s deepen our practice today.

Instead of giving up, let’s remember that we’re entitled to miracles.

I will not trade miracles for grievances.
I am entitled to miracles.
Grievances are nothing I want.

I choose Love and gratitude as my spiritual practice today and every day.

We trade grievances for miracles.
Our spiritual practice heals our life!

When Things Don’t Make Sense

Friday, December 13th, 2019

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

”I don’t know what anything is for.”

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

I don’t know what anything is for.

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

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

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

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

Let me surrender my confusion and choose Peace instead.

Truth is always liberating. Always and eternally.

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

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

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

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

A Better Plan

Thursday, December 12th, 2019

On Tuesday, I had a beautiful experience of God’s Perfection – although it didn’t seem like it at first. I’m staying in an Airbnb rental in Scottsdale, Arizona, and I was out for an evening walk as the sun was setting. I came back just after dark, and as I went to enter the house the door wouldn’t unlock.

The door to the house is one of those keypads with a combination lock. It wasn’t working at all. I tried it a dozen times and nothing. I figured that the battery must have died. I texted the landlord, who didn’t respond, so I called and explained.

She told me she didn’t have a plan for this, as it hadn’t happened before.

She said that her daughter could come with a key to unlock in two hours.

I said “That’s great, but… I really have to go to the bathroom. I don’t have a car, I don’t have my wallet, and I don’t wish to wait two hours to get in. Any other ideas?”

The landlord had no ideas, except to walk somewhere and find a bathroom. She was REALLY sorry and said she’d get a gift certificate to a restaurant and she apologized profusely.

I said that I didn’t need a gift certificate, I just didn’t wish to wait two hours. She had no other options, so we ended the call with me having to wait it out.

I sat there on the bench by the front door to wait to see what Spirit would guide me to. A beautiful dog, maybe a husky-golden retriever mix, came running up to me as I contemplated. He was so friendly. I knew immediately he was lost. He had no collar, he was well-groomed and clean. He probably jumped a fence and escaped.

He had me pet him for a while and then he ran off. I continued to contemplate for a minute, and then I got the nudge to go walk 15 minutes or so to the nearest store that might have a bathroom I could use. I also wished to make sure that the sweet dog was alright.

Well, I saw the dog nervously running around the street, and so I sat down on a wall and called him to me as I again contemplated what to do. I got Clarity and followed it.

I knew the dog might have a chip that could be read so he could be found.
I called the police, who said to take him to a vet.
I found a 24-hour vet that was open.

During this time the dog would take off and then I’d call him back to me to keep out of traffic.
I was just beginning to call for a Lyft when he took off and ran up to this SUV that was passing. The driver immediately stopped and got out and the dog jumped in. I thought maybe this was the owner out looking for him!

Well, it turned out that this woman who stopped was a dog lover who was concerned that he was running around in traffic. I explained everything to her and asked her if she’d drive me to the vet, since the dog was already in her car, and she said she’d be happy to.

At the vet, we quickly discovered the dog had a chip and the owner was notified. I said I’d hang out for a while to see if the owner responded. I used the bathroom (yay!), and after about forty-five minutes got a message that the landlord’s daughter was available to come and give me the key.

I headed home and was grateful that everything had gone so well.

Now, here’s the kicker – yesterday morning, I went to go for a walk and thought I’d just see if the lock was working. It was. It worked perfectly several times that day.

So, of course, I know that the whole experience was so that I could help the dog. If I hadn’t been locked out, I wouldn’t have met the dog and who knows what might have happened to him? Life is interesting!

We can be truly helpful to dogs as well as people.

Spirit has a plan for us at all times.

There are no accidents. None.

Rather than questioning why things are happening to us, we can accept what is occurring and invite the blessing in it.

I had a plan for my evening, but Spirit had a better plan.

I’m so grateful that I could help that beautiful pup!

Finding A Better Way

Wednesday, December 11th, 2019

I used to be SO very stubborn. Good heavens! It was so bad you could say that stubbornness was my “brand!”

Now, one of the things I’m most grateful for is my willingness to change my mind and to change course. It used to be that I would often “stick to my guns” in ways that I would back myself into a corner and feel trapped. I’d do it to myself and then I’d be angry with myself. But since I couldn’t handle any more self-judgment, I’d project that anger out onto others and attack them instead. It was a really vicious cycle in my mind. I’m so glad to be out of it.

Thank you, Spirit for my healing!

There were times when I caused my self so much pain and suffering, and those around me, too, that I couldn’t help but conclude something was wrong with me. Now I’m so grateful that I can (most of the time) easily come forward and ask for what I’d like, what I prefer, and what I don’t like and don’t want in my life. I can really be grateful to not placing myself into a corner anymore. What a relief that I don’t have to have any guns to stick to! Phew!

I am so grateful for my life! I am so grateful that I agreed to follow my guidance! All that I’ve learned I can now share with others to help them out of their tight corners and self-made prisons. That’s a beautiful thing.

I’ve been offering my yearlong Masterful Living Course since 2009 and I’ve learned so much since then. My life has really taught me HOW to recognize my guidance, how to listen to it and how to follow it. And most of all, how to trust it. It’s not all been fun, but it’s all been worthwhile and that’s the main thing.

I’m at the point of the year that I get to talk with the beautiful folks in Masterful Living as we do our end of the year 1-on-1 check in’s, and while not everyone has extraordinary results, many have made real and profound changes because of strengthening their spiritual practice. They’re focusing more on what they’d like than what they don’t like.

They can clearly see that they’re experiencing a much higher quality of life and relationships now. They feel better about themselves. They’re more willing to actually make changes and less interested in repeating the same things from the past. There’s at least some light at the end of the tunnel, instead of just a dark tunnel.

That’s worth so much to me. I used to wonder how I’d ever be able to really help anyone when my life was so challenging and difficult for me. I knew there was a better way, but I didn’t know how to find it. I knew what worked for other people, but those things didn’t work for me. It was special. It was an especially hopeless case. I really believed that.

The thing that began to change everything for me was my willingness to stop believing that ANYONE was hopeless. I became willing to see myself as not separate from others and I began to realize it was my spiritual responsibility to see the perfection in the people in my life, including everyone, excluding no one.

I never imagined I could succeed, but I decided I’d rather give it my best than not even try.

So, now I am so very grateful that I had even a little bit of willingness to believe that there must be a better way!

I’d rather go the better way than the bitter way any day!

There’s a better way for all of us and Spirit is always there to help us find it if we’re willing to look.

Finding the Light in the Darkest Days

Tuesday, December 10th, 2019

In the northern hemisphere, we’re speeding to the very darkest day of the year – just a couple of weeks away now. I’m always SO glad when we get past that milestone, as I’ve become such a fan of the light.

Sometimes the darkness is outside, but sometimes it’s inside.

I’ve been very blessed in my life to work with many people who have had challenges with depression and who’ve been labeled depressive. These glorious people have taught me so much about the misperceptions around depression and fear-based thinking.

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

I find this teaching SO very helpful. I’ve seen many folks in Masterful Living heal chronic depression. People who have been depressed for more than a decade have completely transformed their experience of life through living these teachings.

I’m not saying it’s easy. It might be for some, but it’s usually easier than we think.

Darkness is NOT our natural state. It is actually the result of covering up the Light that is within us.

When we deem another as not having Light within, or when we focus on the surface where their unkind deeds are showing, we are in denial of their Light and we’ll have trouble seeing our own.

There is a way out of the darkness and it is the way OF Love.

Love is our healer. It always has been and always will be.

Depression is a learning experience.
It teaches humility.
And compassion.
It leads us back to the Light.

Each loving choice we make builds on the one before it, and it transforms our lives and our experience. The Light is within us. Let us not deny it in ourselves or in our brothers and sisters.

Allowing the Miracles

Monday, December 9th, 2019

One of the things that we get to learn as spiritual students are how to get out of the way of the miracles that are available in our lives. We were talking about this in class over the weekend.

A Course in Miracles teaches us to focus on changing our minds about the world, rather than trying to change the world. And yet, we keep forgetting it. Some lessons are so simple that we just can’t believe it’s actually true.

When our relationships are so difficult and so challenging, as they often are, we can remember that forgiving OURSELVES for our part in the pain is the way to have healing in the relationship and in the minds of all parties involved.

We were talking about how we can seem to hold onto resentment and anger and it builds. We can hold onto resentment about something for decades. Sometimes it fades and sometimes it ferments.

The way out of the anger and resentment is to forgive ourselves for our part in the mess. Without that, there’s no relief from the upset. Whenever there is anger and upset, resentment and hurt, we’ve had a part in it.

ACIM tells us that our happiness REQUIRES our taking responsibility for what we see.

This is one of the great healing practices that we have available to us, and yet, we still tend to blame others rather than take responsibility.

The way out of pain is available to us and we can choose it.

We don’t REALLY know what ANYTHING is for, so let’s stop thinking that we do and have a good time together.

When we practice responsibility and forgiveness in these ways we see miraculous healing breaking out all over our life. Every day! Isn’t that what we’d really like? Doesn’t that sound beautiful?

I call it “proving God.” When we prove these principles at work in our mind, and in our relationships, then we can move out of the fear of feeling that we’re being punished and it will never stop.

To me, making these choices for forgiveness and responsibility is Self-loving and Self-healing and that’s a relief.

We really CAN move out of self-sabotage and into Self-liberation. Phew!

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.

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!

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

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!

Undoing Unworthiness

Thursday, December 5th, 2019

It can seem hard to believe that the reason we aren’t having the life we’d REALLY like to have is because we feel unworthy of it. When we FEEL unworthy it means we also BELIEVE we’re not worthy.

Who decides who is worthy and who isn’t? We do.

Time and again, I’ve seen people who felt completely blocked to having a life they loved shift their experience by changing their minds. I know we talk about this often, but even though many talks about it – they don’t actually have the willingness to change their minds. And I know that prayer can help us with that.

I can think of the many people who’ve taken my classes and had the courage to do the inner work. Some of them were COMPlETELY convinced that certain things were out of their reach. They’d tried to bring their goals to fruition and failed enough that they were discouraged from trying anymore.

Then, instead of trying to MAKE things happen out there in the world, they worked on the inside, on their beliefs.

When their beliefs changed, their experience changed.
And that’s the definition of a miracle.

A miracle is a shift in thinking – a release of the blocks to Love and Wisdom always brings a shift in our experience of life.

For me, one of the most extraordinary revelations I’ve had is that we’re so alike! MANY spiritual students believe that these spiritual tools work for other people, but not for them. Why?

They work for other people because other people are worthy. They are not bad.

They don’t work for them because they are not worthy, they are bad.

These are the beliefs that are the blocks to Love. And they can be undone.

Yes, it does take work.
It takes real and actual work.
And, it’s joyful work.

If you know WHAT the actual work is that brings success, AND you have the support and encouragement to do it, it’s not such a mystery.

It becomes doable.

And then it can actually be done.

The biggest block to Love there is the belief that some are worthy of Love and some are not.
Since we’re all one, either everyone is worthy or no one is.
If we believe that one person is not worthy of Love, then we must also,
whether we know it or not, believe that WE are unworthy,
and then, of course, we’ll experience lack, attack, limitation, and separation.

We are the ones who choose the path of learning we take.

There is no need to learn through pain.” ~ A Course in Miracles

ACIM tells us that when we learn through the pain we will come to hate the world.
I know it’s true because I did use to hate this world and I no longer feel that way.

ACIM also says, “They hate the world they learned through pain. And everything they think is in it serves to remind them that they are incomplete and bitterly deprived.” In other words, we interpret the world as reminding us that we are unworthy, but we’re not. No one is unworthy of Love.

We can stop learning through pain and start learning through Joy and then we can discover a whole new life of Love.

Love is the way to a life of Love.
Love is our healer.
If we’re trying to solve a problem with something other than Love we’ll still have a problem.

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!

Real Willingness

Wednesday, December 4th, 2019

It’s exciting! In Masterful Living this week we’ve been talking about how we’ve had breakthroughs with our families over the holidays. Well, that’s not quite accurate. We’ve had breakthroughs in our thinking this year, and that’s led to the shifts and changes we’re seeing in our lives, in our families, in our bodies, and our finances.

What we’ve been talking about this week is that we can see that, because we have changed our energy, our vibration, our thinking and beliefs, the people around us are making different choices. It’s absolute proof that our choices make a BIG difference in the lives of others because our minds are joined.

This is powerful stuff!

SO MANY people I’ve spoken to in Masterful Living over the last 11 years have told me that they never thought it would work for them. They believed these spiritual practices and the healing they bring would work for others but not for them. And yet, if they’re willing, it does work for them. Because Spirit never fails.

When we put Spirit in charge, we can succeed.

Many times we think we have to change other people’s minds and make them understand something so that they’ll shift and change, but that’s not how it works. When we can hold folks in our lives with the higher and best thoughts, and then be the living demonstration of Peace, of Love, they will have healing, too.

A Course in Miracles says it this way: Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.

It takes ACTUAL willingness to actively choose change your mind about the world.

Many people SAY they’re willing, but when the moment comes for them to demonstrate their willingness they don’t even realize it. They’re not THAT interested in changing their mind and so they miss the opportunity. That was me.

We can say we’re willing, but that’s not willingness.

I so admire the beautiful folks who join us in Masterful Living. They are the living demonstrations of willingness and their lives demonstrate their actual willingness.

To experience miracles we must be miracle-minded.
To be miracle-minded, we must be willing to choose differently.
Willingness is not words, it’s choices.
Never forget that and you’ll see the difference in your life.
We are real people experiencing real miracles.

How was your Thanksgiving?
Did you see miraculous shifts and changes in your family, and relations?

Outsider – When You Feel Like You Don’t Belong

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2019

You might be surprised to learn that most spiritual students feel like an outsider. Think of it: all these people who are connected in spiritual community and yet they still feel like an outsider.

At the A Course in Miracles conference this year in Boston, I offered an afternoon workshop about starting a Study Group that was SO powerful. Many there shared that they really desired to start an ACIM Study Group, but they were afraid for people they knew to know what they were up to. In that experience, in that life, there’s a sense of not belonging and being different. It’s a projection of our sense of separation.

For a long time I felt that I didn’t belong in so many different ways.

I remember when I was a kid that I started school earlier than some – my birthday is at the end of November, and so I started school early – and I wasn’t really as mature as the other kids. I’m not complaining, but I do sense that I felt different.

Then, as I got older, there was talk of me skipping a grade but my parents didn’t do it because I was already younger than others in the class. The reason for me skipping a grade is that they knew I was bored. The compromise was for me to do extra book reports.

I know that in junior high school I was really beginning to feel like I didn’t fit in, but I managed to find my crowd of misfits to feel comfortable enough. In high school I was with a different group of misfits, and at least we were all misfits and so that made us fit together.

For my teens and twenties, I particularly felt that I didn’t belong but I made the best of it. The main thing I felt was that I didn’t belong on this Earth. As my mind began to clear as a result of my spiritual practice, I went through another period of feeling that I just didn’t fit into this existence – that there was another dimension where I was supposed to be and where I’d feel comfortable.

There are many of us who are here to help lead humanity into the next Golden Age of Enlightenment. We’re in this in-between the ages stage. The Piscean Age isn’t quite finished and the Aquarian Age is just getting started. We’re here to help be the bridge to the Golden Age of Enlightenment.

Think of a bridge – it is a structure between two places – and that’s what we are – a bridge between worlds.

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

So, let’s have it be okay that we don’t belong to the ego structures of this world – we belong to Spirit. We belong to the Light and that’s an absolutely wonderful thing to realize!

Do you feel like you don’t belong? Please share in the comments below and let me know!

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.

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!

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. 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!

The Treasure is in Our Heart

Saturday, November 30th, 2019

This world is one where truth seems like a lie and a lie seems like the truth. Example: We, who are perfect, believe that we’re less than perfect.

Or how about this: We who are One with our Creator and can bring forth magnificence into existence, believe that we’re lacking.

Pause for a moment and consider this: are you looking for something, ANYTHING, in the world to make you feel better?

Do you believe that if things in the world were different that you’d feel better about yourself?

If so, you’re like most people – and the good news is you can shift that and actually feel better about your life! How crazy is it that eliminating looking for things in the world to improve our lives can actually improve our life? Crazy!

The Kingdom of Heaven is within each one of us. If we’re looking to find it somewhere outside of our own heart, then we will never, ever even catch a glimpse. Many people are still seeking outside of themselves, thinking that what they deeply want, need, and desire is somewhere in the world. They believe if they look long and hard enough, they might find it. They believe that if they work hard enough, they will be able to manifest it or attract it. They believe that if they’re lucky, someone will give it to them.

All of that seeking is an illusion.

The Kingdom is within us, and to look elsewhere is to go on a fool’s errand. Deep down, we all know this. That’s why so many despair. They are afraid to look within. And yet, that’s where Heaven can be found.

That’s where our treasure truly is.

Why would someone be afraid to look for the Kingdom in the one and only place it can be found? Well, if we’re thinking of ourselves as not good enough, if we’re thinking that inside of us is something ugly and unworthy, if we feel we’re filled to the brim with guilt, blame, and shame – then we probably won’t feel excited about looking within.

Instead, we’ll fear what we might find. Better not to look within and simply continue to seek in vain. Many believe the suffering of NOT finding is less than the suffering of discovering just how ugly your own heart is and don’t even know it. This is the thought that keeps so many from discovering the amazing riches of the Kingdom.

“Remember that where your heart is, there is your treasure also.” A Course in Miracles

The Truth: Amazing riches are ours already – the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is pre-installed!

Let’s look within so we can find the treasure where it actually is!

Spiritual Explorer

Friday, November 29th, 2019

Yesterday I had fun making a Thanksgiving dinner for very dear friends. I made a turkey with stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, salad and three kinds of cranberry sauce. I hadn’t made cranberry sauce in ages. I made three different recipes, one was just a guess really, and all three had jalapeño peppers in them.

I also made the turkey in a way that I’d never tried before – in parchment paper, and it came out GREAT.

The experts advise against making new recipes when you have guests, but I like to try new things with other people and so I go for it. I realize now that it takes some confidence to be able to that. I remember one time I made an angel food cake for a friend’s birthday. It was his favorite kind of cake and I had to make two of them, because the first one was a disaster.

For me, the confidence to try new things isn’t about confidence in my ability. It’s not that at all. The confidence is in my ability to not feel humiliated if the new thing I try turns into a disaster. If I fail at doing something new, it’s okay with me.

At least I succeeded in attempting something new.
No matter what I attempt, I will learn something and that’s valuable to me.

Life can be lived as an exploration or it can be lived in a safety zone.

I’m a spiritual explorer.

I’m exploring my consciousness to root out that which no longer serves my life of Love.

I’m not much interested in just sightseeing or having the experience, but I am interested in releasing all fear.

I am interested in exploring the depths of Love.

Now, don’t get me wrong.I do feel that safety is valuable, too. However, most people feel unsafe only because of their own self-judgments. Learning not to judge ourselves is the way of A Course in Miracles – “In my defenselessness my safety lies” is Lesson 153 of the ACIM Workbook.

It’s our self-attack thoughts and attacks thoughts directed at others that make us feel unsafe. Give up all attack and defense and then you will feel SO MUCH safer. Don’t take my word for it, prove it.

I’m all about proving these truths. It makes such a difference when we’ve proven it for ourselves.

Have you come to feel safer through releasing judgments?
Is the sense of safety tangible?

My Birthday Prayer

Thursday, November 28th, 2019

Happy Thanksgiving to you, if you’re celebrating! I am so grateful for you in my life and our connection that transcends time and space. I love offering this daily prayer, and have been sharing a prayer with those who are interested since 2007. What a blessing it is to have so many prayer partners all over the world. I AM truly thankful!

Today is my birthday, and it is with great gratitude I offer up this prayer this day!

A number of years ago I started a tradition of recording a birthday prayer video on my birthday and I am glad to share it with you.

I don’t need any gifts, but I invite any donations you might like to make to support this ministry in offering more free offerings of various kinds. All of us at the Power of Love Ministry are so very happy to share! Your support is the best gift I could receive. Thank you and bless you!

Airport Angel

Wednesday, November 27th, 2019

Since the day before Thanksgiving is the biggest travel day of the year, and today is predicted to be unusually higher amounts of travelers, AND we’ve got major storms across the U.S., I’m sharing my favorite “Daily Shot of Spiritual Espresso” that I’ve written and it’s about traveling.

Waiting my turn at the LAX American Airlines Terminal Burger King at 5:30 one morning I watched the woman who filled the orders. She had an authentic smile for each customer, asking them if they wanted juice or coffee with their value meal. Each half-awake traveler was lovingly told where to find the napkins and the ketchup. Each was told to have a nice day with real sincerity. By the time it was my turn to receive her kindness, I had to tell her how much I appreciated and admired her spirit. Her smile grew even brighter. I felt the depth of her heart.

For many people, having to be at work before 5 a.m., dealing with the public for what is hardly a living wage. would be crushing. But for this woman, it seemed that she felt SHE was the one who was deeply blessed. Every day she faces people who are flying around the world for any number of reasons. Some are flying to or from funerals, some are frightened of flying, others worried about their jobs and their families. I saw that this woman recognized her opportunity to provide a personal and powerful blessing for each customer. We all have this opportunity with each person we meet, regardless of our circumstances.

This woman at the Burger King seemed to have it all because she was giving so much to each one she met.

With her every breath she teaches us that if we want more Love we need to be the Love we seek.

I intend to walk in the world as a loving, giving presence wherever I am and with whomever I’m with, and with every passing day I find more Joy in my walk. Still, I don’t know that I could do what this angel does. I know many people who yearn for a deeper expression of life purpose, more loving relationships, more Peace, more Prosperity. People often think they have to go somewhere special or take a special class to be transformed. I hear the words “Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.”

Today I resolve to find my inner angel nature and to walk in it.

I look for opportunities to share the Light that I can find in myself this day.

Angels don’t look for rewards or gratitude. The simple opportunity to be the giver IS the gift.

Today I am willing to be the Love in my life!

Please let me know your thoughts! And have a blessed trip if you’re traveling, and enjoy being cozy if you’re not traveling! I’m cooking and having time with my dearest soul sisters and Prayer Partners of 22 years. We’re so glad to be together. There’s much to be thankful for!
