Sometimes the way the tapestry of life is woven together truly astounds me. Last week I was reminded of just how connected and supported we are. After talking with a trusted friend and listening to my own internal guidance, I decided that I would no longer keep a spreadsheet of my expenses. For the past 2 or 3 years I have kept track of every dollar going out. (I guess that’s what happens when you date an accountant for a few years.) I’m grateful that I did this because now I have a very clear idea of how I am allocating my funds. This is very useful information. However, to continue this practice into 2016 seems to demonstrate a lack of trust in an abundant Universe. The more I practice the principles of A Course in Miracles, the more I remember that I am always connected to Source, which is infinite by definition. I have seen over and over again that all of my needs will be met one way or another because, in Truth, I cannot be separate from this Source. The Course gives very practical advice when it says:
Give, therefore, of your abundance, and teach your brothers theirs. Do not share their illusions of scarcity, or you will perceive yourself as lacking.
As I have mentioned before, I love to listen to “Magical Things” with Radleigh Valentine on Thursdays at 5 PM EST on Hay House Radio. Imagine the smile on my face when a woman brought up this exact same question on his show last Thursday. She shared that her money situation has been shaky for a while, and wanted Radleigh to confirm some unexpected guidance that she received while meditating. When she asked her angels if she should continue using a spreadsheet to keep track of her expenses, they simply told her to “Stop it!” That’s when Radleigh began to giggle and my smile got even wider. You see, just the day before, Radleigh and I had been communicating via FaceBook, and I shared one of my favorite videos with him. In this video, Bob Newhart plays the familiar role of psychologist, however the only thing he tells his client during the entire comedy skit is, “Stop it!”
Of course, when Radleigh was done reading her question, he had to explain why he was giggling so much. He used this as a wonderful teaching device to show that sometimes answers are given before we ask the questions. In this case, the confirmation that she should STOP IT was given to him the day before. What Radleigh didn’t know was that this message was also confirmation for me! It never ceases to amaze me how Spirit works to weave everything together. I saw this video for the first time about two years ago when I was facilitating A Course in Miracles study group. One of the participants suggested we watch it, and I’m so grateful she did! It was a miracle moment that came full circle two years later. I am also incredibly grateful to Radleigh for mentioning my name on the air as a fellow spiritual teacher in Florida. Life is indeed magical.
If your life is feeling less than magical, I invite you to come experience the magic of a Family Constellations workshop. Amazing synchronicities and connections happen all the time. It is a unique opportunity to see how much more alike we are than different, while opening our hearts to new levels of understanding. When we understand, we have compassion, and that’s when things in our lives begin to change. Participants arrive as strangers and leave as family. Join us and see for yourself.
Life Coaching is another way to create magic in your life. I love seeing miracles happen when my clients shift from a fearful way of looking at something to a loving way. I share practical tools from A Course in Miracles and other sources that have helped me do the same thing. Please visit my website for more information about Life Coaching programs and to see the dates for upcoming Family Constellations.
Until next time, if you are doing something that is taking away your peace… STOP IT!
