Healing Loss: Election Edition


Imagine that you’ve lived your life in the seat of democracy, a shining beacon of ideals, progressive values and freedom that literally draws the world. And picture a slow-motion carnival of the absurd and outrageous, a grainy side show culminating in a presidential election with breath-taking results. Not only does the popular-vote-candidate-by-a-landslide not win, but … Continue reading

Mary Magdalene’s Got Bounce


My favorite aspect of the archetype of Mary Magdalene is her embodiment of redemption transformed into the Divine Feminine. No matter where we started (even being a “lowly woman”) or where we’ve gone, the claiming of our Divine nature and purpose is possible. Oh how high we can bounce! We can mature spiritually and express … Continue reading

One Little Prayer: God’s Grace Is Enough


I have no cause for anger or for fear, for You surround me. And in every need that I perceive, Your grace suffices me.   (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 348) I have every reason to feel safe and abundant. All That Is exists only WITHIN God, which is inherently safe and need-less. While … Continue reading

Caregiver Crunch, Balance and Resilience


Caregiver Crunch Over the years of my practice I’ve heard many stories I would put in the category of “caregiver crunch.” Caregiver crunch is the over-tasked, over-scheduled, time-pressed, stressful life we experience when we simply have too much to do and can’t see a way around it. There is nothing on “the list” we feel … Continue reading

A Prayer for Turbulent Times


  Father, help us. Help me help You help us to remember who we are and what it means to be Yours— what it means to be part of the Oneness. Thank You for this breath. Thank You for guiding me to the next right action or inaction. Thank You for everything. The All is … Continue reading

Hell Week, Heaven Sent


In the short span of one week: client #1 offered me schedule changes that dictate cutting my hours in half while infringing on my most popular time for individual sessions (reducing my income further), client #2 put our work on hold indefinitely due to cost-cutting measures, and, client #3 sold her business and retired. And … Continue reading

A Lightworker’s Pledge


I’ve seen good, well-meaning people engrossed in worldly matters, looking away from seemingly difficult truths (I’ve done the same myself), but now I choose to follow the inner, spiritual voice— Source—God’s Voice—the Holy Spirit—the Voice for Love! I place my attention on what is true—what The Creator Extended in Creation. I choose a higher course. … Continue reading

God’s Voice Speaks to Me All Through the Day


I was raised amidst the rationalist attitude that if you think God is speaking to you, you’re probably crazy—as in mentally ill. This narrow view (along with a few other factors) shielded me from hearing God’s Voice for many years, and set me up to assume that God’s messages to us are more general and … Continue reading

Ebola and Oneness


I’ve been following the unfolding of the most recent Ebola epidemic centered in West Africa with the persistent sense that Ebola is a teacher of oneness. A harsh teacher, to be sure. But what greater lesson would be heard by a student of A Course in Miracles about a virulent killer that refuses to be … Continue reading → https://miracarroll.wordpress.com/2014/10/26/ebola-and-oneness/

Whisper


This sweet kitten I called Whisper scampered through my life for a short while this fall, on his way to his loving, forever home. Though he seemed unschooled, he was quite a sage—as this picture reveals. . . Here are Whisper’s Top Ten Teachings:   Speak softly; your whole being is already speaking for you. … Continue reading
