The metaphysical Spiritual Text “A Course in Miracles” The course teaches that all fear and suffering comes from investing in a learned identify, a false self that is invested in separation and pain. The truth of what we are actually has no identity with the physical body.
What we are is Love in its purest form. When we aren’t in alignment with that, we experience guilt (whether conscious or unconscious), pain and suffering. Everything we experience can be witnessed through fear which is never the truth, or Love which is always the truth. Everything in our life can be used to strengthen, our awareness of love. Our experiences can also be used to strengthen our investment in the false sense of self. My recent trip to the vet with my dog was a beautiful example of the contrast of the false identity and the stillness, the knowing that comes when we choose to rest in Love.
I have a beautiful dog, She is an absolute blessing in my daily life. She is a wonderful reminded of the present moment and the choice we all have control over. The choice to be happy no matter what appears to be going on. While it is true she doesn’t enjoy bath time, she doesn’t spend any time dwelling on past bathing mishaps, or anticipating future ones. Yes, she doesn’t like having baths (and she has a way of letting me know she disapproves), but when the time comes she accepts it for what it is, .Emily is a teacup Yorkie, full of joy and love. Every year I put money aside to have her teeth cleaned.
My vet has been telling me for the past several years that Yorkshire Terriers as a breed are known to have “bad teeth.” I’ve explored many alternatives over the years as options to care for her teeth. Before I had begun my journey working with angels and studying A Course In Miracles, Emily’s vet visits were a source of massive anxiety for me. Each time she went for her annual cleaning I would worry about the possibility of my sweet dog potentially losing teeth.
In September, Emily turned the earthy age of 8 (though her spirit is always youthful. On March 13th, she had her annual teeth cleaning. I asked the Angels to be with Emily throughout the checkup and cleaning, and I asked for the highest good to be done. I released everything to the care of God & I went about my day more relaxed then any previous appointments. Several hours later I received a call from the vet saying that Emily’s 6 tiny front teeth were diseased, and needed to be removed.
In my mind I immediately went to guilt. “What could I have done to prevent this?” “What could I have done to take better care of Emily?” “What could I have done to make it so she wasn’t facing this situation in the first place?” I even felt myself feeling defensive at some of the vet’s questions.
I’ll be honest, I felt very uncomfortable, and I was very aware of my discomfort since my spiritual practice has granted me so much peace, and a willingness to go with the flow of life in the awareness that my true identity is not what I see “out there” in terms of a body that experiences problems and conflict.
I wasn’t feeling peaceful when the vet called me though. I stayed feeling discomfort for several hours which felt very unusual. I am now much more comfortable aligned with Love, so anything that isn’t peace actually feels intolerable. During the vet experience I felt really guilty. A Course In Miracles teaches that “Guilt is always insane.” So, I chose to take that insanity and look at it with Spirit.
I know from working the principals of A Course In Miracles that discomfort only comes up to be observed with love. Observing something un-judgementally allows it be released and exchanged for true perception.
I wasn’t seeing myself with true perception while I was stuck in the guilt and the Self-blame. All I was seeing was the effects of my judgement. Once I was ready to look at my guilt and feel it n all of its ickiness I became open enough to embrace a miracle and be willing to accept a shift in perception.
I talked with Spirit and the Angels about everything I was feeling, my extreme discomfort, my bewilderment that this whole experience was bothering me so much.
I even looked at my frustration with myself for feeling so frustrated (LOL).
It was then that I received the intuitive message that Emily losing these teeth was an agreement that had already been made on a Soul level, there was never anything I could do to change anything that occurred, and by being willing to authentically look at what was coming forward, I was able to transform the entire experience from one full of fear, to one exploding with Love.
Once I was able to let go of the guilt, I was able to see and recognize so many other miracles that had occurred around the entire situation. I had been asking Spirit to look after everything for me, and Spirit had done just that, Emily was given tremendous loving care. Her vet bill invoice was printed at 1:11 which in Angel Numerology means “Your thoughts are manifesting, stay positive!”
Miraculously, the vet was inspired to remove several charges from the bill for Emily’s care as a gift. There is no doubt in my mind that God and the Angels were behind the gift of financial savings.
Emily is doing wonderfully, there was no ideal as far as she is concerned, to her, she hadn’t lot anything, and she has no attachment to those teeth whatsoever!
Emily taught me so much about an attachment I was hanging on to, and still placing belief into. I call her my “Little Angel Dog” and she truly is. She helped me look at areas where I wasn’t choosing for complete innocence. What a gift!
I’d love to hear from you, if this blog resonates with you. Feel free to share your personal experiences in the comments below!
Music is a big part of my personal spiritual practice. It has the power to lift me energetically, and is an essential tool in manifestation work. Why?
Because the key to manifestation is not the person place or thing being desired, the key to manifestation is whether our personal spiritual energy is in alignment with that which we desire.
For example, lets pretend my desire is to manifest an iphone. Intellectually I may feel like I deserve an iphone. I've placed a picture of one in my vision board, I've prayed to the divine for help to receive one, and I am excited at the thought of having one in my life. These are all fantastic starting points for manifestation, and should be commended. The steps where fellow humans (myself included) tend to get caught up is where our energetic vibration meets our desire.
1) A common misconception about manifesting
anything in our lives is that anything we want is somehow a reward for good behavior, and if we don't have something that we currently want, we believe we are being punished or that we somehow do not deserve our desire.
2) Another common misconception of manifestation s timing.
When we really want something, we often want it right now! But in spiritual truth, we might not be prepared to hold our desire just yet.
Using the iphone as an example, a person may really desire to have one, but deep down they feel the cost of the phone and the monthly bill do not match up with the desire. This may create guilt, or a feeling of unworthiness which in turn blocks the manifestation.
So where does music fit into all this? Just like we eat healthy foods to fuel our bodies, I believe every influence has cause and effect in our lives. Just like I watch what I feed my body, I also keep a close eye on the music I listen too, the movies and television I watch, and the books I read. Since I was a child, I've always had a special connection to music, I love it. There was once a time where I listened to pretty much everything. Not anymore, because not all music makes me feel good. In fact, some music can do quite the opposite. When manifesting anything, feeling good about your desire is integral. This brings me to the crux of this blog post. It is so important to make conscious choices in life, and for me, this includes the music I listen to. I no longer choose to listen to listen to music that makes me sad. If something makes me sad or unhappy , I switch it off.
I would like to take a moment and share with you a little about one of several female vocalists who have been inspiring to me. I've always enjoyed a vast variety of music, but not really anything in the Country Gene re until Carrie Underwood arrived to country music. She hit the music world as the winner of a signing contest, and has since been awarded every honour in Country and pop music. She has transcended the country mold, making country sound accessible to people who wouldn't otherwise listen to country (including me) This young lady is poised, and hasn't let fame interfere with her authentic truth. She has polished her song writing skill and has co-written a plethora of her own material. Singing live and telling genuine stories abut life, and the human spirit remain at the forefront of her music.
With lyrics like "Sometimes that mountain you've been climbing is just a grain of sand – what you've been "out there" searching for forever, is in your hand." "This is my Temporary home, its not where I belong windows and rooms that I'm passing through – this is just a stop, on the way to where I'm going. I'm not afraid because I know this is my temporary home", "I will see you again, this is not where it ends I will carry you with me until I see you again. "Life is like a ride on a party bus, turn the radio up and sing along with it."turn off the static on the TV. Wish you could see yourself the way I do. Nobody ever told you Nobody ever told you. You shine like a diamond Glitter like gold And you need to know What nobody ever told you."
Carrie is completely authentic, and watching her passion and joy as she sings brings me joy. Yes, she's a "celebrity", but she's real and her lyrics speak to my spirit. Choosing music to listen to that takes you to that place of joy and lifts you up. This is so important to accompany your manifestation work.
