How to create your new life in 8 steps

OK, so when life throws a big challenge your way, such as a break up of a marriage, (which is just what I went through in the past two months), there are some things to do to keep your head above water.

After my husband announced he wanted to split up, I went through very intense emotions and then realized I simply had to accept this challenge.  How?  Well, this is what is helping the most:

  1. Focus on me.  Be clear about what I want, because my life’s goals are not dependent upon anyone else.  Period.  I was amazed at this, because the relationship seemed to be important to me and I was so centered on being together.
  2. Let go of trying to make anything work.  Stay in the moment and allow the rug to be pulled out from under me so much that I would not be able to land in any familiar territory.  Use the experience to grow!
  3. When anger and indignation arise, allow it, and feel it totally.  Then ask for help to see it differently. The ego mind wants to justify its pain, but you deserve better.
  4. Watch my thoughts and pay attention to the voice inside my head.  I have the mind training of the Course in Miracles deeply embedded in my mind and every lesson helps me.  Always and in all circumstances.  Here’s an important one:  I can give up this world I see, (my perception of it), by giving up attack thoughts. Letting my attack thoughts go made me see that I need love now, and attack thoughts do not feel like love.
  5. Ask for help from absolutely everyone I know.  I told them the truth and what happened was so miraculous.  I got money, a place to live, and moved to my home state within 6 weeks. This was not my plan, but once I arrived, I began to realize that I feel absolutely myself here.  The familiar setting, the lakes, the ocean, the mountains and especially the familiar faces all soothe my soul.
  6. Keep open to new ideas and possibilities. I still don’t have work, but I feel confident that I will be led to the exact right place where I can be most helpful.  I don’t know what that looks like yet, so I focus on the feeling of being useful and happy with the work I am doing.  Everyone around me has some great ideas and each one is something I will stay open to and explore.
  7. Keep the faith that God is perfectly seeing me through every aspect of this change. I am taking time off from a very busy life and finally getting some down time.  This is important to let myself heal, to give myself time to open up and allow my beliefs about my life, who I am, and what I want to shift right now.  I don’t have to have the answers.  They come one day at a time.
  8. Follow my heart and trust.  Ask for the guidance to come through in obvious ways so I don’t miss anything.  I visualize myself really happy and then notice what I’m doing.  Happiness is a state of mind and I can feel that at any given moment.  It isn’t about what I am doing, it is about me accepting and loving myself right now exactly as I am. Even with all my insecurities and uncertainties.

Hope this helps you as much as it is me right now!

5 Steps to Change your Beliefs

If you want to know what your beliefs are, listen to how you talk to yourself all day long.  How does that barrage of thoughts make you feel?  If it makes you feel bad, you are about to open to a new way of living where you choose to feel good and think those thoughts that align with feeling good and feeling happy.  A belief is only a thought you continue to think, something you either have experienced as true for you, or you accepted it from someone else.

Beliefs can be changed instantly. How?

  1. Decide you want a different belief, one more in alignment with the power and will of your inner being of love.
  2. Read a lesson from A Course in Miracles. This presents a new idea for you to embrace and accept.  For example, God’s Will for me is perfect happiness.
  3. Practice the idea throughout the day.  On the hour, on the half hour.  Write it down.  Repeat it whenever anything upsets you.
  4. Imagine how you would feel knowing that this new idea is actually true: For example:  I am the light of the world. How would that feel if it were really your experience.
  5. Accept it, walk around feeling how it feels within your body.  Tell everyone you meet the same lesson silently throughout the day:  For example:  You are the light of the world. There is nothing your holiness cannot do.

There are 365 lessons in the mind training of A Course in Miracles.  Each of these thoughts allows you to change from victim to the powerful creator that you are. The goal of the Course is joy and peace.  A peace that cannot be shaken by anything that happens to you in the dream.

This may astound you to know that you have all power and can heal anything, be anything, accomplish anything you want.  It is a far cry from being trapped in a victim dream.  And we want you to realize that when you decide you want to dream another dream, the universe responds and gives you this new song to sing.  You simply have to get excited about it, become joyful with the possibility of what you could do or be.  Then you can start to imagine yourself doing all sorts of wonderful things with your life, with your friends and family.

You can imagine yourself in any way that you choose. Isn’t that so?  Your imagination has no limits.

Try it.  Love is all around you and is within you.  So imagine that light within you growing into a flow of energy from crown to tailbone and out the bottom of your feet.  Feel it, energize it and accept it as true.

This 25 minute healing meditation can be found here and on the right column on this blog home page, it will guide you to experience more peace, more joy and more forgiveness. It heals mind and body, by directing light energy using the breath and release of emotions.

Enjoy!

Can’t meditate? Here’s help.

I just wanted to announce I have added this link to a 25 minute healing audio FREE that you will find permanently on the right column under my picture. Just click on this link from your laptop, phone or device.  .

Why would you want to do this?  To relax, release, to be healed, to practice forgiveness, to connect with your Self and experience grounding energy.

I suggest you set aside the full 25 minutes to listen and relax. Turn off everything and let go of the busy world for this short period.

The intention of this audio meditation is to heal your physical, emotional and spiritual bodies.  It is easy to follow especially for those people who feel they cannot meditate, or calm down.

It takes just 25 minutes to have a new experience of yourself and become free of fear, guilt, anger, shame, and to be in the light of your own Being.

Enjoy!

Laughing at Fear

I just put together a bunch of new blog topics and this was at the top of my list. I wanted to share with you how easy it can be to release fear. The Course gives this line as the entire reason for the dream of separation or the descent into hell: “you had a tiny, mad idea at which the Son of God remembered not to laugh.”

Remembered not, or forgot. Remembered not, which means you, the Son, remembered what did not happen. You remember the fall, the schism, the pain of loss, the moment where pain replaced joy and the kingdom was a forgotten memory. This is really important so I have to emphasize what you remembered not…that you remembered not to laugh!

You remembered only to take it seriously and to believe it and judge yourself for it and harp on it and make it all a real experience. And then you felt so guilty, you projected the guilt out away from you onto the only thing you could find, your body. And then other bodies you found around you, Adam blames Eve for the fall because she is the only one there. Then you became so afraid that God would punish you, so you punished yourself for this so called act.

All the while, you kept the little secret to yourself that you feel so guilty about and you keep it hidden so far down inside you, you would feel just terrible if anyone ever found out. This is what drives people to sedate all the time! Yet, when you uncover the whole reason you feel so bad about yourself, you feel the incredible pain of the guilt and self-hatred you subconsciously harbor within yourself…then something can begin to open up. You have simply had enough of it. Deep resentment, deep shame and guilt. It is time to surrender.

So, for however long you have been trying to hide and not resolve your guilt, by projecting it, stop now. Take the pain back to its source, your own mind. And finally allow the solution to occur within you. Resolve the riddle of yourself as a separate being and realize one thing: It isn’t true, you are not guilty because the dream had no real effects.

The guilt of suffering and pain lasts until you just expose the cause and let it all go! A miracle occurs, a shift in perception. A realization, a remembering of the love you once knew as your communication with your Creator. You forgot to laugh, you thought He had abandoned you. No, dear one, He didn’t. He is right there inside you and always has been.

Now, what can possibly be so important and serious? I know you took it very seriously, sure, so did I. But every error is undone in exactly the same way: the love and light shines on your idea of separation, and lightens it to the point where it disappears into the nothingness from which it came.

Isn’t it time, right here and now to begin to laugh at yourself? It was a tiny, mad idea, it had no effects. God did not do it to you, you did not do it to you. You can laugh now. It was a crazy idea that has no possibility of being true and never did. It is futile to continue to think you have to resolve an unreal problem. That is why awakening is a recognition, not a change at all.

This attack upon yourself is old and tired and never brought you any relief whatsoever. It isn’t hard to let it all go, it is the easiest thing in the world, it is the relinquishment of the underpinnings of your dream. It is your awakening.

The simplicity of this idea strikes me each time I feel the release that comes with the “aha!” I was doing it to myself all along and I can stop right here and now!

Love is all around you, within you, and IS YOU. You are not ever going to be able to be anything but YOU. Laugh at the idea you could change a perfect, whole idea in the Mind of God!

Fear Not: Its Valentine’s Day

Here’s a Valentines Day gift to yourself!

The entire goal of the Course is peace. What is peace? Is it outside of you? Is it possible to achieve outer peace? Huh? If mind is singular and whole, how could peace be achieved in the outer? It can’t. You must go within and find the peace that resides deep within you. There is a YOU that is all knowing, all loving and rests in complete certainty of who it is. That is YOU. In time and space, you think this you is not available to you. That is why you need the mind training and why the Course offers so many ways of telling you to let go, be yourself, you are not guilty, there is nothing to fear, God is with you, you are whole and perfect. God did not create a separate you. It is made up and you no longer have to pay attention to it. Finally, you simply have to relinquish this insane idea, that you are not you. How simple, yet how difficult.

That is why the lessons are so important. You have put yourself to sleep with one tiny mad idea. You could not usurp the power of God because God is love and He wouldn’t let you do this to yourself. You are dreaming a dream. When you accept this, you begin your transformative process and release the ideas that you made up. You are continually making them up and you can stop. Just don’t give them any energy whatsoever, repeat the lesson to yourself instead. My Mind is Part of God’s, I am Very Holy. Or, There is Nothing My Holiness Cannot Do. I Could See Peace Instead of This. Any lesson will do because they all contain the whole solution.

You can admit that you have fear thoughts, of course you do or you would not be here. Acknowledge them, but then release them. They have NO SOURCE. Isn’t that amazing? You made up fear and you can let it go right here and now. All your pain and suffering brought you to the realization that you are doing this and you can stop. You are playing a game with yourself.

I know that it sounds easy, but truly, it isn’t hard to release what isn’t there. Is it? Take some deep breaths, put your hand on your forehead, connecting right and left hemispheres, and repeat after me:

“I think I am lost, I think I am separate from my Creator, but that is not true. I am still the Son He loves and only good can come to me. I am protected, guided and loved by an all-loving Creator. There is nothing I need do to be loved and to know myself as this perfect love. My job, my only function is to let love in. To reside in the peace of God and know that He loves me. That is how I can be truly useful to those around me. I am God’s Son, complete and healed and whole. Shining in the reflection of His Love. Everyone surrounds me in this wave of love and light and we are free to be ourselves forever. Amen.”

Take a deep breath and let it resonate. Just for 2 minutes today be at peace. Bring yourself home and out of fear. You can do it, it is natural to you. Miracles are natural. A miracle is simply the correction of a mistake, it shifts your perception from separateness to oneness and love.

It happens moment to moment. Easy. Simple. Take a breath and let all your fear go right now. It was never real. You are whole, you are perfect. Love is all around you. It is WHAT You Are. Do one thing today, fear not. Give no energy to the past, stay present. Know thyself! You are the love that you seek. You can experience yourself as this love in every moment. How about now? Everyone is waiting for your love to shine on them and bless them. That is your job today!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
