40 Days of Light – Day 30

I choose to testify to my acceptance of the Atonement.

Jesus reminds us many times to be a happy learner. Learning his teachings in A Course in Miracles need not be drudgery or difficult. It comes to simple forgiveness, love, peace, Oneness and accepting Holy Spirit’s Wisdom. What part of the mind tells us this is “hard” but our ego mind. Each day, each hour and minute we are always deciding between the crucifixion and the resurrection; between ego and the Holy Spirit. When we reach for guilt we reach pain as we are deciding against our own happiness. There is a lovely prayer reminder in our reference reading today. Take time to be silent, to read, to contemplate and reflect on this reading. What does it mean to you? How can you practice?

40 Days of Light – Day 29

I bless everyone and bring them to the circle of peace.

We are deeply connected to God in our mind. Holy Spirit is our Link until we fully awaken. He speaks to us of our place in the Atonement. The crucifixion has no part in the Atonement, so crucify yourself no longer. Only the ego wants you to condemn and be condemned. The Holy Spirit shares the power of Love with us. Love is gentle and kind and it for us to bless everyone with God’s Love. Today, do just that. Bless everyone you meet or think about as you go about the day. Let no one stand outside the Circle of Peace.

40 Days of Light – 5th Sunday

The Message of the Crucifixion

Today is the 5th Sunday in this “Lent” time before Easter. In this week’s session, we work with the section in the Text, Ch. 6, I. The Message of the Crucifixion. This section will truly set us free by what Jesus instructs. We have no need of fear for now we teach only love.

The Message of the Crucifixion

with Revs. Deb and Paul Phelps

The message the crucifixion was intended to teach was that it is not necessary to perceive any form of assault in persecution, because you cannot be persecuted. T-6.I.4:6

In this session, Revs. Deb and Paul Phelps teach in-depth from Text, Ch. 6, I. The Message of the Crucifixion.

Short Meditation follows.

40 Days of Light – Day 28

Today I will abide in peace.

I just opened a fortune cookie and it said, “Little is needed to be happy.” It is true. We think our lives need to be full of so much when the opposite is true. Healing is what we need. Accepting the limitless gift of God is what we need. Remembering our ancient Name is what we need. We are to save the Son of God (ourselves and our brothers) from crucifixion. We have the power to do so. We have the power to bring peace. It is the Will of God that His Son has everything. We are everything. We are free from guilt and punishment. What more can you ask for?

Reference: Text, Ch. 26, VII. The Laws of Healing

Here are additional inspirational thoughts I had related to our affirmation yesterday.

Thoughts on Day 27

Each day, I am telling myself today’s affirmation along with the others. “I choose Your Peace.” Despite the swirling of the world around me, so much input that can be overwhelming, too much information in, too much media, too much of noise, I can and have chosen peace. I pray you are doing the same.

Someone posted today about the time spent on Facebook and I believe this person said they spent almost 2 hours. They had forgotten to remember God. Sure, there are times in the past, I have done the same. Yet, for quite some time now, I make it a daily practice to orient my day to peace. I start off with meditation, usually 25-30 minutes, sometimes longer, sometimes shorter. There is no set “have-to” even though I have a timer. I take no coffee or tea, nor look at phone or tablet, no TV, no news, no emails and certainly no work.

Why? I choose the peace of God first and foremost.

Facebook and all can wait. None of these are more important than the communion with God. Make a dedicated decision from this point forth to enjoy time with God. It will make quite a difference in how you approach your day. You will find yourself not as distracted as you had been but more energized in being mindful, happy and at ease.

Try it, won’t you? Let it be an experiment for a week and see what occurs. Let me know afterward.

Peace,
Rev. Deb

40 Days of Light – Day 27

I choose Your Peace.

With love in our hearts for our Father, we know how could there ever be cruelty in Him? We were poorly taught. We have put up defenses to His Love and we have attacked His Love. We have placed idols before Him in the many forms of this world. We’ve worshiped at the feet of form. In fact, we have worshiped fear. Today, we will now think differently. We choose God’s Peace. We accept that we are like God. And there is no cruelty in us, for there is none in Him. We accept His blessing of freedom and we give thanks.

40 Days of Light – Day 26

I love You, Father, and I love Your Son.

If you were indoctrinated in the Christian or Catholic faith, you learned that Father sacrificed His Son, Jesus, because of our sins. In A Course in Miracles, we learn all of us collectively, along with Jesus, are God’s Son. What a shift we have from our religion of origin. We can now not see ourselves as sinful, and not see Jesus as the sacrificial lamb. We are all entitled to God’s Love equally. We come to our Father today without any judgment or grievance for what we learned before, but only gratitude for what we know now.

Reference: Workbook for Students Lesson 298 – I love You, Father, and I love Your Son.

In this episode, Rev. Deb leads a meditation that assists you in remembering and feeling the Love of God so that you may be strong in the face of fear.

I hear my Father speak to me.

Today we are still. Really do this. Take at least 5 minutes in the morning (preferably more) and listen to God. The cure you need is the end of separation. Know yourself as One with All. Listen carefully, be silent. Come to your Father with love and gratefulness in your heart. Be sure to do the same at the end of the day.

40 Days of Light – Day 24

I accept guidance from within.

Healing does not come from anyone else. You must accept guidance from within. Jesus is here to join with you. Jesus says, “Healing reflects our joint will.” Are you ready to be free? Separation is overcome by healing. Join with Jesus and the Holy Spirit and remember. Reflect and journal on this today.

40 Days of Light – Day 23

I forgive, pray, and I am healed.

We dream now of healing. Our Father looks to us to come to Him without any judgments on our heart. We are here to speak is word and so we return our voice to Him. We do not abandon Love today. We listen for the Call and answer with our heart and soul. We forgive, pray and then we are healed. And so it is.

The Fear of Healing – 3/26/17

The Fear of Healing – 3/26/17

with Revs. Deb and Paul Phelps

The ancient calling of the Father to His Son, and of the Son unto His Own, will yet be the last trumpet that the world will ever hear. Brother, there is no death. T-27.II.6:7-8

In this session, Revs. Deb and Paul Phelps shared from the section in the Ch. 27, II. The Fear of Healing and Workbook Lesson 137 – When I am healed I am not healed alone.

40 Days of Light – 4th Sunday

I am healed.

Today is the 4th Sunday in this “Lent” time before Easter. In this session, we teach from the section in the Text, Ch. 27, II. The Fear of Healing and Lesson 137. Forgiveness brings a healing to both our brothers and ourselves. We are never healed alone. In truth of course, we are already healed. Here in the world, we still see ourselves as separate. Let it be no more. Reflect on this today.

40 Days of Light – Day 22

I forgive myself.

God has never condemned, and neither should we. We need forgiveness as it opens our eyes that have been shut for so long to the Light. Today, we practice Lesson 46 with enthusiasm, with relief, with trust and with gladness. We offer forgiveness to ourselves for we have replaced His Love with fear. We are already forgiven. We are loved.

Reference: Workbook for Students, Lesson 46 – God is the Love in which I forgive.

Unity Radio Show “Entitled to Miracles” with Rev. Deb

Jesus’ Message: Teach Love

As we learn in A Course in Miracles, the focus is not to be on the crucifixion but rather on the resurrection. Jesus tells us that the cross is the last useless journey we need take and the only message to take from it is: Teach only love for that is what you are. As practitioners of ACIM, it is our mission to follow his crucial message. Rev. Deb shares several examples from her personal life, demonstrating the way of love instead of the jagged path of fear.

40 Days of Light – Day 21

Do no harm.

Our affirmation today is simple. Three words. “Do no harm.” When we say this, we mean do no harm to others as well as ourselves. We are only hurt by our own thoughts. No one can deprive us of anything for we deprive ourselves of peace when we believe so. Today, we remain vigilant of all thoughts of hurt and harmfulness, and a need to attack or judge. We withdraw blame and ask Jesus’ assistance instead. When we withhold kindness from others, we are withholding it from ourselves. When we do this, we are remaining in the dream. Let us awake together!
