We’re finishing up the week-long Quantum Counseling Training Intensive here in Scottsdale, AZ and it’s been such a blessing to all of us.  One of the things everyone is getting a lot of clarity about is how helpful it is for us to feel our feelings – and how much we all tend to avoid feeling our feelings until we realize how beneficial it is.

If only we could be taught this as children!  Instead, our childhood is often filled with admonishments about our feelings.  I know so many people who were treated meanly as children and told that their feelings were wrong and bad.

For most of us, when we get upset, the natural tendency is to do something to make our feelings wrong.  

Many have told me that when they were children, if they cried and were upset their parents would tell them, “shut up, or I’ll give you something to really cry about.”  Not very compassionate – to say the least.

When people aren’t compassionate, we can have compassion for them.  That’s true compassion.

In the meantime, it’s essential to our well-being that we give ourselves the opportunity to feel our feelings and not make them wrong.

People have often said to me things such as, “I know it’s stupid, but when this happens, I feel …”

Feelings aren’t stupid.  

Feelings are profoundly helpful.

Our feeling are the most helpful thing we have to support our awakening from the pain and suffering we’ve been in.  It may seem hard to believe, but the feelings indicate an opportunity for healing.  We can learn to be grateful that we’ve recognized an opportunity for healing, rather than curse the upset.

We can turn the upset over to Spirit for healing, which is exactly what ACIM tells us to do.  And we can remember that fanning the flames of anyone’s upset, including our own, is not kind and will be the cause of a new effect that won’t be much fun.

Over and over again each day we can realize how helpful our feelings are.  We can be grateful when we notice how we feel.  We can recognize the opportunity to heal.  We can call forth a miraculous healing, not of the upset, but of the cause.  Let’s heal to the root to have new fruit!

TOMORROW, SATURDAY:  We’ve got a FREE Forgiveness Workshop this Saturday!

LATEST PODCAST EPISODE! The most recent episode of my podcast’s topic is Atonement Activation.  What is the Atonement? What value is it? How can we activate and accelerate our healing and move forward towards our awakening? In this episode, I share what I’ve learned, tips and easy ways to move through the density of ego attachments to choosing the atonement and experiencing rapid healing. We have everything we need to move forward in our awakening now at an accelerated pace!

If your spiritual practice isn’t giving you miraculous results that you can FEEL and see and recognize, then it’s time to rethink it. Quite honestly, that’s one of the great advantages to working with a Spiritual Counselor – they can help you get back on track in ways that are TANGIBLE. I’ve been training spiritual counselors for a decade. And those in training are available to do sessions on a donation basis. We also offer FREE Exploratory Calls with Counselors to assist you in taking stock, getting clear what your next steps are and it’s a great way to get support for Free. If you think any of our programs might be right for you, but you’re not sure – book a free Exploratory Call today.
