Heal Your Mind, Transform Your Life – Through A Course in Miracles

Why do you need a mind training?

Quantum Physics states that cause and effect are not apart. The Law of Attraction states that you get the result of your thoughts instantly. So, you need to free your mind from the fear and negative energy that has bound you to the Earth in a separate state of existence.  Does this make sense to you?  If so, you probably want to get some help, and luckily, you have come to the right place.

First you need to accept a few premises:

  • The Earth is a hologram. You are a body, identified as one, and you believe this whole world of separation is real and you have to survive, suffer and die. This is the dimension of earthly bondage.
  • The good news is: You have all power and you can decide to have a different experience.  You can change from a separate existence from the Creator to one of healing, oneness and peace.
  • So for a moment, suspend your judgment and just assume it is true, you have a choice.  How would you know how to awaken on your own?  You need a miracle.
  • To awaken and to become free from the dream, means you need a mind training, a path or a sure direction that will lead you out of the dark.
  • The first step is to admit that you have a problem, and you don’t seem to have the solution.  Only then you are open enough to be teachable.
  • The miracle is the correction of the original error, it is the universal teaching of spiritual reality and eternal life.  Love and forgiveness is the way out of fear, as these two states cannot coexist.  Perfect love casts out fear.
  • This thought system based upon love is also going on at the same place where you have placed the belief in separation, in your mind.

What to do?  You need a new thought system and a way to correct the error going on in your mind.  

How to do it?   If you read the 365 lessons of the Course, for 10 minutes each day you will open yourself to experience a change of mind so vastly unlike the state of separation, it brings swift healing and awakening that affects you at all levels of mind and body. This then, becomes the correction, or the miracle that brings about illumination.  Being in the NOW means you stop the memories of fear from affecting you.

What will happen? When you apply each of the lessons to your mind you feel and see differently.  If you succeed, and you will each time you truly ask with desire, you will find yourself in a very peaceful state of mind, it will begin to allow you to live in a new reality.

Why do it? There is every reason to do this, because the world needs you to be fearless and to learn the mechanism of release. It is imperative that those on the spiritual path join to free the human mind from bondage.  It is up to you to free yourself and then you can be of service to those who still suffer.

Does this make sense to you?  Have you been looking for a spiritual guide?

Who I am:  

I am a teacher of A Course in Miracles who is also an energy healer. I was healed of anxiety and depression by doing the lessons of A Course in Miracles and by energy healers.

After a very short time of doing the lessons, I felt more at peace and fearless than ever before in my life. The guidance I experienced inside me led me to become a teacher of the Course. It was inevitable that I found an awakened Master who showed me that I had awakened, was able to confront the parts of me that were in denial, and confirmed that the truth was within me. I stayed with him for 10 years until his passing.

Why work with me?

I only want you to know yourself as you truly are:  Perfect as God created you. This is a real experience, not just intellectual theorizing. The Course aims at the experience of perfect peace, knowing who you are and becoming totally free of fear, guilt, judgment, and yes, even death.

I am here to shine a light on the darkness, you help you become released from fear and come into the reality of yourself as a loving being of light.  So you can become fearless, full of clarity about your life’s purpose and in tune with Divine Reality.

I am now offering the opportunity to work with me privately.   Simply click on the Healing Sessions tab in the top menu and follow the directions.

Get Rid of Fear Once and for All…

The secret to living without fear lies in one thing only:  your desire to get rid of it. All creative and healing endeavors require you to move through fear.  All desires of the heart to grow, to give and to love in all conditions require courage and faith. Remember, love and fear cannot coexist, as Jesus states this very early on in the Urtext in the section called Fear as Lack of Love:

Fear cannot be Christ-controlled, but it CAN be self-controlled. Fear is always associated with what does not matter. It prevents Me from controlling it. The correction is therefore a matter of YOUR will, because its presence shows that you have raised the UNIMPORTANT to a higher level than it warrants. You have thus brought it under your will, where it DOES NOT belong. This means YOU feel responsible for it. The level confusion here is perfectly obvious. http://courseinmiracles.com/urtext/chapters-1-thru-10/chapter-2/section-3

Here’s a proven way to free yourself from fear within a few minutes when it arises:

  1. First of all, know you made it up.  Its unimportant, but you think its real, and you will have fear because you forgot you are a mind, not a body.  It is up to you to release it. Resistance is fear, but Jesus states in the New Testament, resist not evil.  It’s unimportant.   Don’t resist what is silly. Yes, you do experience fear and it will arise when you feel the threat to your survival…yet if you want total freedom and happiness, just recognize it and see it as growth toward freedom. When you accept that it is fear that causes you to grow, you will not listen to it.
  2. Deep breathe for 10 minutes. Fear has no real source because all fear is based upon a lie.  There is nothing to fear.  You have made a state of separation, you think its true, but, you are not the thing that fears, you are the spirit beyond all the emotions. You can breathe deeply for 10 minutes deep into your belly.  Alllow it to release and if your mind wanders, just breathe.  If thoughts appear, just say “oh well” and breathe some more. Try it.
  3. See yourself moving through the veil of fear, or lifting it off you.  Can you imagine what it would be like to easily remove this fear from your mind?  It is work to free yourself from fear, but its better than listening to fearful thoughts. They only make you crazy.
  4. Listen to your heart, not your head.  Get quiet and go within for a moment.  Really let go and ask for help to see the situation differently.  God wills you perfect happiness, this means you can trust Him.  Listen to His voice within you. Ask and listen, and you will receive the answer from deep within you. It takes a little willingness and great persistence to set yourself free.
  5. Have courage to face your fear and go within.  Listening to God’s guidance or the small voice inside, the one that speaks to you softly, encouraging you. Listening to this voice is the only way out of fear forever.  As you get comfortable with the practice, when fear arises, you will know what to do.  Growth is accomplished by releasing fear and learning to trust.
  6. The 25 minute healing meditation  here can facilitate a shift away from fear, disease, unforgiveness and clears the chakras to allow more love and light into your awareness.  Take just 25 minutes to free your mind from fear.  Do it now. The world needs you to be fearless.

Thanks for opening up to a new way to live, letting go of fear by knowing that it is completely unimportant. If you’re interested in receiving guidance through your process, check out the Healing Sessions page and the ACIM Classes page.

8 Things you need to know to free your victim role

When someone betrays you, or doesn’t fulfill his or her promise to you or completely lets you down it’s very easy to feel abandoned, unloved, and confused.

You may feel angry, shocked, disbelieving that this could happen to you, you wonder how you were blind and couldn’t see the motivations of the person who harmed you.  You realize you were not in control of the situation and were prey to someone’s ulterior motive, which was not to love you.

You have a choice before you:  victim or creator.  This fact can free you to heal from this and see that can learn something.  You can allow for the feelings while accepting that you are growing from this and can embrace it as part of this growth process.

The pain of these mind states can overwhelm you, yet it is essential if you are to become free of them that you consider these ideas:

  1. You are not in control of what other people choose to do. Don’t take it personally that they have made a choice to let you down. Its not even about you.
  2. Taking full responsibility for your thoughts about it is critical to your awakening.  Remember, all thoughts have power.
  3. Your thoughts of victimization keep you in pain and do not allow for release of this pain. Therefore, do not accept it.  There is no power in victimization, you have given it away to the victimizer.
  4. You must accept responsibility, maybe not for what has occurred, but for the feelings which arise from it.  This distinction will clarify that you cannot control what happened, but you can control how you respond to it.
  5. Take the focus off the other guy entirely.  Let him be.  Just focus on the part you played within the situation, and accept that you can learn from it and move on.
  6. Becoming more aware of the blocks that keep you from accepting yourself as whole and perfect is a good thing, even if you can’t see that it is helping you yet.
  7. Harping on what happened only keeps you in pain.  Don’t tell everyone you meet, just allow that you need to stop telling the story, and get some rest from the idea that you need to justify your feelings of victimization.
  8. Own the vulnerable you that experienced this and give it more love.  Be a parent to yourself for a moment and let the child in you experience it while you extend love to her.

You will discover that, in spite of all that seems to be happening, you are coming into greater knowledge of yourself.  You are in control of the outcome, you can use this to free you from the nightmare of separation.  This can trigger deep abandonment and you can use it to accept that you can never be truly abandoned by God.

20 Ways to Get Through a Breakup

In the midst of a breakup, you can get very confused, or you can use this list of ways to get through it.  This is a way to speed up your awakening and healing from relationships.  Forgiveness is key now but it might feel impossible to you.  That is totally understandable.

My husband announced two weeks ago that he didn’t want to live with me any more.  I have found myself in shock, anger, guilt, rage, fear, frustration and dismay.  Here is how I am getting through it.  It is working for me and helping me to move quickly into joy even in the midst of this painful situation.

  1. Stay focused on you.  Don’t focus on the partner and what he or she did to you. Let them be.  You have no control over them, but you do have control over your mind and how you handle this situation.
  2. Make a list of things you have to take care of now.  It could be to find a place to live, to work (if you work at home), organize a move, decide what possessions you want to keep.  Don’t worry about this too much, you can always replace stuff.
  3. Be very focused on your mental state.  Do the lessons of the Course, read Chapter 17 The Holy Relationship.  We use our relationships to heal and to awaken from the dream of separation.  Use this as an opportunity to get serious and be persistent on your path.
  4. Read one lesson per day, or read the first 50 lessons from A Course in Miracles in short form (reviews) every day. I like the reviews because it can be done in 20 minutes.
  5. Allow the emotions to surface, but don’t wallow in them.  You can read and repeat the key lessons like “There is nothing my holiness cannot do.  I am as God created me.  There is nothing to fear. “
  6. Breathe deeply and use this meditation to release emotions and the tendency to blame.  Panic will not help right now, when it comes up, do this quick 25 minute healing to release the emotional states.  Resentment is not going to help you right now, but it will come up and this will help to let it go quickly.
  7. Ask for help.  Many supportive friends and family will come to your aid, people you never thought would be so caring.  Allow them to help you right now because you need them and it alleviates the loneliness and fear. You are supported by God right now and your friends and family want to help you.
  8. Go within.  Write down all that you are feeling and focus on what you want now  .  Don’t listen to everyone and their opinions, this will just confuse you. Don’t let other people’s breakups or stories influence you.
  9. Write down the “old story”, this what you have been living regarding your self, partner, career, finances, and home.  Now burn it.  Now write down the “new story”, aim high and imagine what you want right now in all these aspects.  This will help to let go of the past and move on quickly and stay focused on YOU, and what you really want now.  Read it over and over every day.
  10. Pray each day for guidance and to be shown that you are loved and taken care of. The universe loves you and is giving you this opportunity to speed up your process of awakening.  Allow the guidance and the freedom from fear that it brings each moment.
  11. The blessing in this situation is:  There is always a blessing for you in a crisis…write it down.  This keeps you focused on what you are grateful for, allowing for more appreciation.   Read it over every morning.
  12. Focus on your abilities and strengths. This helps when the critical judging thoughts come in that eat away at your self-esteem.
  13. Don’t allow the judgments and self-criticism.  Write down all your wonderful qualities and things you have achieved in your life.
  14. Keep an open heart and mind.  When you close down and feel the pain, know that it is changing.  It is important to feel the emotions but know that you are not your emotions and feelings. You can stay open to receive more healing and more grace.
  15. Stay hydrated.  Don’t reach for alcohol or coffee right now…I know its tempting, but it brings your body into stress and your emotions will be harder to calm down.  Drink tons of water!
  16. Exercise.  This really keeps the stress out of your body.  Go for a run or walk every morning for at least 30 minutes. It helps to know you care about yourself right now.  Take care of the body and the mind.
  17. Take a break from your location.  Book a trip and give yourself time to slow down and go within.  I am going to a part of the country I love for 5 days and seeing my two grown boys. I can feel how much I need this right now.
  18. Try this worksheet from Byron Katie for self-examination. A simple four step process to let go of your painful thoughts.
  19. Don’t project all your thoughts onto your partner.  Let them go for now.  Be steady and look at your own mind.  Remember, self responsibility is key.
  20. Give yourself a break, its time to list all the things you love and and remember what brings you joy and do at least 3 of those things each day.

When life choices seem daunting in the midst of chaos, know that there are no mistakes.  You will make choices and then learn from them. Honor your progress and your path right now.  You want freedom and this is giving it to you in ways you cannot fathom right now.

Although the pain will surface, feel it and use it to free you today.  It is helping you to become more compassionate toward yourself and others. Stay humble. Focus on this moment right now.  Not next week, not next year.  RIGHT NOW…it is the only time there is and it is where your healing resides.

How a breakup can free you

You may have moments in your awakening where someone has let you down and you aren’t able to get beyond the feeling of disappointment, sadness or pain. I just went through this with a business partner and found myself wondering what happened, did I do something to bring about this occurrence? Is it a good change? And where am I responsible for it?

The self-responsibility statement from A Course in Miracles is clear: I am responsible for what I see, I choose the feelings I experience, and I decide upon the goal I would achieve. And everything that seems to happen to me I ask for and receive as I have asked.

This leaves absolutely no room for victimization. I know that the only way out of negative emotion is always to accept responsibility for the situation and my own feelings associated with it. I often have to write them down to find out what I am really feeling and perhaps have buried. When I reveal to myself the hidden feelings, I can then ask for help with their release, but until I look at them and identify the truth within me about them, I won’t feel released. I need help in that moment. And the Holy Spirit or healer within cannot relieve me of something I am unwilling to look at honestly.

Forgiveness is letting something come to the surface, looking at it and allowing it to be released for you. Then, you only have to be willing to let go of your perception. It’s OK to be wrong. Especially if you are unhappy.

So in this situation, I had to look at my expectation that I had put on my partner and really ask myself if it was reasonable that she meet that. Was she capable of meeting it, even though she may have intended to, did she really have the motivation within her to do so. It became clear that I was hoping that she did have the motivation, but in reality, she wasn’t showing me that she did. When I felt this happening, I confronted her with it and then let it go. I know I have no control over what someone else wants or chooses. I simply have to be clear about my intention and my desire. But how that plays out is beyond my control.

Now when I was able to forgive this, and let her be exactly where she is, and let myself be forgiven for having an expectation, I could allow a new door to open, let a new opportunity for a change occur. It’s important to surrender to the greater good for all concerned. But it wasn’t that easy.

In journaling this, I had to admit I was having misgivings and frustration with the partnership and wasn’t able to cut it off immediately. I found myself doing too much for her and letting her be helpless and dependent upon me. This became increasingly frustrating and I realized I could not trust her to do her part. So, in effect I had let the situation go on too long, by my need to help her get her act together. And then I found it intolerable.

I first had to confront this within myself, and see where I had allowed this manipulation to occur. When I could see my part in it, that I had agreed to take on this role with her, I then made a decision to stop. This finally was the catalyst for the change and the confrontation.

Now, I can better focus on my priorities and my goals and have increased energy and determination to move ahead. My support has to come from within me and from my Creator. He knows how to heal me, and release me from my tendencies to let someone manipulate me. And my own expectation came from feeling I wanted to have a partnership, when in truth, I am too independent for that. I know who I am and want to express it freely. In truth, I want to be released from relying on others inappropriately. Or, as many women do, feeling the need to be depended upon…we get this from mothering, partnering and being in constant service to the world around us.

Yet in this situation and many others, I have found that the real answer is that I am free to be independent and must be if I am to be happy. My independence, however, means I am relying upon my Creator, my higher self, my savior and the light of truth to shine through me. This will reveal the love behind every encounter that feels like pain, disappointment and conflict.

Only appreciation is an appropriate response to my brother. This statement from the Course challenges me to accept everything exactly as it is and to let go of my expectation. This frees me and my brother and sister in this dream of ever unfolding life and the journey back to LOVE itself.

I hope this helps you today.

Why do you do the Course?

I wanted to ask my readers who they are and what they are looking for, if they read the Course, or not and why. Do you seek spiritual guidance on the net? Where do you usually find it?

I think that most people looking for spiritual guidance are like I was a few years back, 1990s to be exact. I remember feeling lost and confused, and seeking some help. I had been reading the Course for several years, even teaching it in small groups, but I wanted more, I wanted to connect and to know there were other people like me. I felt very alone most of the time and I didn’t feel that people around me were necessarily on a similar path. I needed a sense of community so that my experiences of spiritual growth could be shared.

I would like to alleviate some of that loneliness and start a community of like-minded people seeking true freedom.

I have been thinking that you, the reader may want to do a program such as the Course but are dismayed by the size of the book and want to understand the basic ideas behind it. You may be overwhelmed and not sure about how the Course could help you. Perhaps you have studied it for a while but feel that you need some deeper understanding of the principles and ideas.

Please respond with your answer to the following:

1. Why read a blog about A Course in Miracles? What are you looking for?
2. Do you do the lessons? If so, what is your ultimate goal in reading the lessons? If not, why not? Do they intimidate you in any way?
3. Would you be interested in a 12 week course on the Course?

I am deeply interested in you and want to open up a dialogue so that we can begin to help each other.

Please email me or comment below with your answers. I so appreciate it as this will help me to focus more on what you want from this masterpiece we call A Course in Miracles.
