Independence Day Indeed


Since the Course came through the Americans Helen Schucman and Bill Thetford, I wondered if Jesus included a special lesson for us on Independence Day.  He did: I want the peace of God. To say these words is nothing. But to mean these words is everything. If you could but mean them for just an … 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.

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

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.

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

Optimistic Voices


Originally posted on Marti's Theory:
The Wizard of Oz was released by MGM in 1939, with music by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg. I know every lyric of every song, and more of the spoken dialog than I’ll admit in public.  “Optimistic Voices” is the name of the short piece that plays when the…
