You've Got Mail!

Hi,



In my mind one day, I ranted about a friend of mine. I wasn't mad at her or anything like that, but I did feel that she was planning to do something that I thought was

inappropriate in a certain respect. So I decided to send her an email

to set her straight. Ha!



I was at work and in between patients

when I wrote this email and so as I finished it…

The ole Log-in-the-eye Syndrome

Periodically over the years I have read posts on various Course lists about how “course students are the worst”, or how “most” or “many” students of ACIM do this or that. Invariably the disgruntled person will post an old article by…

Asleep as Ego's Surrogate?

Hi there,



Sometimes it's difficult to give you a synopsis of the latest "Oh My God! I'm Free!" session because we go into so many ideas.



I started out with talking about how ego keeps us mindless with a focus on the body -- the body being the great distraction. A Course in Miracles speaks about how we project our guilt and fear onto our bodies, other people and the world at large to keep us from looking at the real problem -- the thought that we are separated from our… Continue

What If...?

What if you slept?



And what if,

in your sleep

you dreamed?



And what if,

in your dream,

you went to heaven

and there plucked

a strange and

beautiful flower?



And what if,

when you awoke,

you had the flower in your hand?



Ah…, what then?






In my slumber I can dream of heaven, and awake to find heaven in my hand.



Heaven is not God’s Club Med in the sky; nor is it a place governed… Continue

What is Your Grievance du jour?

We can read, hear and study spiritual principles ad nauseam, but they are essentially useless if we do not learn to apply them to the ins-and-outs of our daily lives. My daily spiritual practice is all about applying what I’ve learned to my grievance du jour.



It’s probably fair to say that most of us have a grievance-of-the-day, and usually more than one.

The dictionary defines “grievance” as: “a complaint against a real or imagined wrong.”

I love this definition because… Continue

A New Decision

Wow, what a great "Oh My God! I'm Free!" (OMGIF) session we had today! Lots of great sharing and participation! I started out with these thoughts:



This morning I was lying in bed thinking about this idea of change. I thought about the idea that I’m not supposed to want to change, I’m supposed to let all things be exactly as they are. It seems like such a paradox: to change or not to change! ha!



Through experience I’ve definitely learned all the ways that I can’t… Continue

Prayers in "A Course in Miracles"

There are many “prayers” in A Course in Miracles that HS has guided me to practice over the years. I rarely, if ever, hear people talk about prayer when it comes to the Course, nevertheless, I learned to pray through my study and practice of it.



I learned to pray these prayers when I needed them, and consequently, I have experienced great healing in my life. (I wrote about most of them in my book, “Oh My God. It’s Me!”).



I have spoken about these prayers in many… Continue

Living Indoors

Much of spiritual literature tells me in one way or another that if I keep my mind focused on God/Truth/Love, anything within me that is not aligned with this energy will drop way. While I have experienced this to be true, there are aspects of my life where I continue to exhibit compulsive behavior, and thus feel frustration. HS addressed this with me over the last few years, saying, “Sheryl, the reason you feel frustrated, and struggle in this area is because in this aspect of your life, you… Continue

How Do I "Live" A Course in Miracles?

A Course in Miracles informs us that the ego likes to grab hold of scripture and distort it for its purposes of condemnation, separation and fear. Well it comes as no surprise that this is also done with the teachings of the Course.



The Course is not about teaching us how to love, more profoundly, it teaches us why we don't. Each one of us has an ego alive and well within, and it will not be subjugated with spiritual admonitions.…

Embrace the New!

Hi



A few weeks ago, I distinctly heard my Inner Teacher say, "Sheryl, You cannot go where you want to go, and stay where you are now."

Upon hearing this, I was once again reminded of the ideas I wrote about in a previous blog on the passage in the Bible about wine skins. In today's session of "Oh My God! I'm Free!" I was inspired to share these ideas once again.



In late 2007 and early 2008 as I was being urged to let go of… Continue

A Recipe for Miracles

Even though A Course in Miracles begins with fifty principles of miracles, I’ll bet I’m not the only one who was confused about how on earth I was supposed to go about working miracles. I don’t engage in debate as to which version of the Course is better, I use and enjoy all of them; nevertheless, the earlier versions contain incredibly rich material in regard to the miracle principles.



A few years ago I was inspired to study the miracle principles throughout all the versions, and… Continue

What's keeping me in Hell?

One thing I truly love about A Course in Miracles is that, no matter how many years I put into its study and practice it remains new and rich for me. Within each of its pages, and especially in the workbook lessons, there are layers of meaning to meet us where we are. As we grow in spiritual awareness, the Course has even more to say to us. Such was my experience recently with lesson 39: My holiness is my salvation.



In this lesson we are told: "With closed eyes, search out your… Continue
