1. Individual healing sessions via Skype

I have been giving healing sessions for over 30 years, and have now decided to offer healing sessions via Skype. When I travel and give workshops I am often asked for a session but have virtually no time available. Recently I gave a healing session via Skype and I noticed it was effective. The client and I both felt we were in the same room together. As A Course in Miracles states, “all minds are joined”, so perhaps I should not be surprised. Time and space are ego illusions, not Spirit’s.

For more information and fees please go here.

A Course in Miracles Material



Kindness 
- A practical Guide - 
Michael Dawson 

The bottom line is that kindness and gentleness to all people, regardless of their situation, should be our guiding principle. 

Dr. Kenneth Wapnick


Kindness created me kindA Course in Miracles L67
My own teacher, Dr. Kenneth Wapnick, was asked once if he could sum up the purpose of A Course in Miracles in one line. He said something like ”To make us a bit kinder”. This reminds me of the saying from the Dali Lama - My religion is kindness.”

Our ego mind knows nothing of kindness and does not believe in it. It believes in judgement, attack and getting what it thinks will bring happiness. Kindness arises automatically as we learn to forgive, to undo our denial of our “secret sins and hidden hates” (T-31.VIII.9:2) and take back our projections from the world. What is denied is projected in unkind ways. What we think about and charge with emotion we draw to us whether we want it or not. This is the law of manifestation. When we withhold kindness from ourselves or others we allow our negative, unkind thinking to continue drawing to ourselves more of the same situations that upset us in the first place. 

This is the only thing that you need to do for vision, happiness, release from pain and the complete escape from sin, all to be given you. Say only this, but mean it with no reservations, for here the power of salvation lies.

I am responsible for what I see.
I choose the feelings I experience, and I decide upon the goal I would achieve.
And everything that seems to happen to me 
I ask for, and receive as I have asked.
       A Course in Miracles  M - 21.II. 2

As we  progress with forgiveness we start quite naturally, without effort, to radiate kindness into the world. The same laws of manifestation that brought more pain into our lives due to lack of kindness now brings a life of abundance on all levels. We start to learn that to judge another is like stamping on our own feet. We also see that to extend kindness to others reinforces a sense of well-being in ourselves. So why would we want to do anything else as the path of judgement makes us feel the opposite? We might call this “divine selfishness”. As we tread the path of kindness we will, of course, be tempted by the ego to sometimes judge and attack as this has been our previous reflexive behaviour to challenges in the world. The Course counsels us to gently smile at the ego at these time. You might want to say “Oh, there you again! What’s new?” This is being kind to yourself.

Course in Miracles students not being kind.
Despite studying the Course, students can fall into a trap of relating to the world in unkind ways. Here are a few examples.
Armed with the metaphysics of the Course a student can attend a funeral and announce to everyone that there is no death and therefore no need to grieve. Believing that one should “place the future in the Hands of God” (ACIM Lesson 194) a student may advise friends to cancel their insurance policies and not lock their cars or houses. A student may tell sick or even dying friends that as sickness  “is a defense against the truth” (ACIM Lesson 136) they should refuse medical treatment otherwise they are reinforcing the illusion of sickness.

None of this is a kind approach to life. The Course says that Jesus meets us where we think we are and undoes errors at that level. If we visit dying friends in hospital they need perhaps a hand to hold, tears wiped away, good pain medications and to be able to listen to their fears if necessary. They don’t need to be hit over the head with the metaphysics of the Course.

Kindness - a practical guide.
I believe we need to take this in steps starting with ourselves and working up to being kind to our enemies.

Being kind to ourselves
We should begin first with ourselves. Society, religion, parents and schools have indoctrinated us with who we should be, what we should look like and how we should behave. Failing to live up to that (as most of us do), we can easily judge ourselves. Instead of following some artificial concept we can start with simply accepting ourselves as we are. To stop judging ourselves for being overweight, not having enough money, not rising high enough on the career ladder, not looking beautiful or handsome etc. As we learn to be kinder to ourselves we learn to be kinder to others. As we learn to accept ourselves we learn to accept others. As the Course put it “Do not fight yourself” (T-30.I.1)

Being kind to strangers
Here is a simple exercise you can practise when passing people in the street or in a shop. In your own mind wish them well and that they may have a happy life. Imagine seeing  them blessed by light shining down upon them or by placing a shining diamond in their heart. Send appreciation and love to them. You are not trying to shift their consciousness, just offering a blessing to them. And as you give so will you receive.

Being kind to our enemies (it really confuses them!)
This, of course, is the hardest to do as our ego mind thinks they need judgement and attack. The following is a progressive seven-part exercise you can use to extend kindness and forgiveness. As your progress through the steps you may find it increasingly difficult. Go as far as you can with it. Each step brings you closer to peace. I have a video on YouTube explaining this seven step exercise, and a second video that guides you through the steps. You can find the link to my YouTube channel near the top of my home page at www.acfip.org. Here is the exercise:

Progressive forgiveness/kindness exercise

-All forgiveness is of yourself-

Today we will attempt to offer peace to everyone, and see how quickly peace returns to us.  A Course in Miracles - Lesson 108

See light around them (blocks judgement)
See them smiling
See them happy and laughing
Say “I have no right to say ‘You must be different’.” (acceptance)
Pray for their healing and peace
Say ”Thank you for being a mirror and showing me I have behaviour similar to yours.”
Give them a hug

All or parts of this exercise can be used whenever judgement has taken the place of kindness. 

And remember “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” 
Rev. Dr. John Watson

Wanting to return home so badly


From Q1320 in: Detailed Answers to Student-Generated Questions on the Theory and Practice of A Course in Miracles 

Supervised and Edited by Kenneth Wapnick, Ph.D.

Wanting to return home so badly, in other words, can reflect an underlying feeling that the world is such an awful place and that it is such a painful burden to be here that we would give anything to be released from it. This can actually be an interference to awakening, as it would indicate that the world is still regarded as real: we cannot abhor or fear what we know to be unreal. There must, then, be a sense of sinfulness and guilt still hidden in the mind that gets projected onto the world. That is why so much of our work with A Course in Miracles centers on recognizing how we are “making the error real”—that is, how our reactions and perceptions reveal an underlying belief that we are separate from God and feel guilty because of that. Once we make that connection, we can ask for help to choose to see everything differently. 

Real deliverance from the world comes in the recognition that the world is the source of neither suffering or happiness, but is simply the projection of the mind caught in the illusory belief it is separate from God (W-pI.132; W-pII.226). We get to that stage by first becoming aware of how much we do see the world as the cause of both suffering and happiness. This is why Jesus teaches us that “Forgiveness is the key to happiness” and “Forgiveness offers everything I want” (W-pI.121,122). This is the “real alternative” that Jesus discusses in the final chapter of the text (T-31.IV), where he talks about the state of mind known as the real world, which precedes our awakening from the dream entirely. 

As we continue on the path of forgiveness with Jesus as our teacher, we becomes less and less identified with life in the world, which actually makes living here easier, in the sense of relieving the pressure most of us feel from taking what goes on in our lives so seriously. As we choose the ego less often, the love in our right mind begins to direct our every thought and action, and our investment in being an individual special self diminishes greatly. We continue to fulfill our roles responsibly, but without pressure and conflict. In this state, there would be not be a feeling of urgency to awaken as quickly as possible because you would not experience yourself as separate from love. Being present to all things and all people with Jesus would be a source of security and quiet joy and peace. Peace, really, is the goal of our work with the Course, not knowledge (Heaven) (T-8.I.1; T-24.in.1:1). And we are assured of peace by choosing the teacher of peace more and more often, who would help us experience our oneness with everyone. Patience and gentleness with yourself will help you through this process, as will trust in the process of forgiveness.

Non Dual Teachings


This part of the newsletter offers input from non-dual teachers. What is non-duality? The word ‘non-dual’ means not two. On the first page of the ACIM text there is two line summary of a Course in Miracles. It begins with the line “Nothing real can be threatened.”
This refers to what God created – eternal, formless, spirit. Eternal means never born and therefore cannot change or die. The Course uses the expression ‘the Christ’ to denote this. Behind all the seeming multiplicity of the universe there is actually only one essential reality. Just as all the images on the cinema screen seem different, the light that creates them is one.

There is nothing outside you. That is what you must ultimately learn, for it is the realization that the Kingdom of Heaven is restored to you. For God created only this, and He did not depart from it nor leave it separate from Himself. The Kingdom of Heaven is the dwelling place of the Son of God, who left not his Father and dwells not apart from Him. Heaven is not a place nor a condition. It is merely an awareness of perfect Oneness, and the knowledge that there is nothing else; nothing outside this Oneness, and nothing else within.
A Course in Miracles T-18.VI.1.

The second line of the summary states ”Nothing unreal exists.” This refers to everything that is born and therefore dies - the ego’s world. Thus everything in the universe including ourselves is not real according to the Course. It is like a great dream. Only perfect oneness is real. 

There are two forms of non-duality – pure and impure. In the impure form God is aware that the universe is a dream and experiences itself through it - God's Leela or play as they say in the East. In the pure form of non-duality God is unaware of the universe. The Course is an example of pure non-dual teachings. A metaphor for this is a cinema projector where the lamp in the projector represents God. When the ego's film of separation is run past the light it is projected onto the screen of time and space. The light of God makes this possible, but the lamp is unaware of what is on the screen and would continue to shine when the film is taken away. To continue with this metaphor the light extending from the lamp is who we are, the Christ. ( See chart http://acfip.org/lightbulb.html)

You dwell not here, but in eternity.
You travel but in dreams, while safe at home. 
T-13.VII.17:6-7.

You are at home in God, dreaming of exile but perfectly capable of awaking to reality. 
T-10.I.2:1.

Allowing


We wish to speak of allowing. Most of you have read books and listened to channels teaching you to love everything which is a very high resonating truth. However, trying to do this has resulted in confusion and consternation for many who simply cannot understand how to love the negative experiences that they themselves and others have had or are presently undergoing.

The three dimensional collective holds very narrow ideas of what constitutes love. You have all been programmed through many lifetimes to think of love as an emotion involving some person or persons, places, things etc. This limiting definition of love still resonates in the consciousness of even the most spiritually evolved making it impossible to love everything that arises and creating a dilemma for the serious student of truth.

Change the phrase "love whatever arises" to "allow whatever arises". When you allow whatever arises from your highest level of spiritual awareness, you are loving whatever arises.

I recently learned that the US space agency NASA has been pointing an orbital telescope at one small part of our Milky Way galaxy and found about 3000 planets to date. This led to one of their department heads saying there must be more planets in the universe than stars. 
There are trillions of stars in the universe. A trillion is a thousand billion. A billion is a thousand million. A million days have not gone by since Jesus died. This is a very big number. 
There are also trillions of moons. Are they all empty of life and the only life is all crowded onto this one planet? A few hundred years ago we thought the Earth was at the centre of the universe and everything else revolved around us. If some of this ET life is just a few thousands years ahead of us, technically, they would have learned how to travel beyond Einstein's light speed barrier and easily visit us here. 
I believe many of them have much to teach us especially as they have been through our current challenges a long time ago.

Healing exercise
Channelled by Tina Spalding

Close your eyes.
Think about that physical ailment or that limiting energy. Something that is within your physical body manifesting as an ache or pain, or a sickness, or a disease, even if it is a tiny thing.

Now take your mind to the part of your body that is causing you this distress and thank that limitation, pain, disease or injury for getting your attention. Then say this prayer: “Please transform my perception so that I may see the truth. I do not need this limiting physical manifestation any more. I want to see the truth. I do not want to be limited by my body. I want to use my body as a perfect communication device for Spirit, as so it is.” 

The body will follow your lead and become healthy. This prayer if said with a 100% conviction will lead your body to pure, unadulterated health.

How the mind effects bodily health
from
Making Love to God
Channelled by Tina Spalding 

 

  The body, when controlled by the ego, is in a constant state of anxiety and fear. There are many chemicals running through it every time you have a hateful or a negative thought about yourself or another. Your entire body is stressed, and damage is caused. The cells react as if they are under attack, as they surely are. Many of your diseases arise because of this state of extreme anxiety.

  (When you) get in touch with peace and the source of your very being, you become a different person chemically. Any thoughts that feel bad are immediately recognized for the untruths that they are, and the untruths are looked at and transformed. This brings about a calming of your system, and as you learn to do this with every thought, over time, your body is bathed in the light of love and the peace that truth brings. Your cells begin to thrive, and your body’s natural healing abilities come into play, removing old, damaged areas to let new cells grow and the wounds of the past heal.

  You see, dear ones, the wounds in your hearts and minds that you feel as depression, sadness, and anxiety all have physical manifestations in the body, which leads to the many sicknesses and physical problems you face in your society. In your true state of love, which is where you are designed to be, there is no illness — only an extreme feeling of health and well-being. So your paradigm that says you get sick as you age and that your body is constantly going wrong is incorrect.

  What is wrong is you are never taught the creative nature of thought in your society, and you are taught that you are a body. These two teachings are at the root of almost all of your problems, for you are not only a body that is fallible and randomly goes wrong. You are the very conduit of the creativity of the universe — God, if you will —yet if you do not know this, the conduit is not open and you suffer terribly from the misuse of the body that is here for you to experience and to learn. But do not be sad or angry that this was not taught to you, for this will not help you on your way. You must be grateful that we have come together at this time and that you will change direction now and begin to walk toward the light of truth and all that it will bring.

   ........    You see, the churches that have ruled the world for so long have implanted many untruths over the centuries, and even though you may not be going to church any longer, or even believe in its teachings, you do not realize the profound effect it has had on your culture’s beliefs and thinking. Indeed, there are many aspects of reality that you do not have any access to because you have been systematically told not to venture into those realms. Here, of course, we refer to the realms of spirit, where we reside.

  When you begin to feel the energies of your true self, the higher form of you, connecting and wishing to communicate, many of you are terrified and will not continue. You sink back into the darkness of the ego’s world, thinking you are safer there, when it is in fact the ego’s world that is the most dangerous to your health — physical, mental, and emotional.

  It is the ego’s world that keeps you depressed and alone. It is the ego’s world that causes sickness and the deprivations of the sick body that you have all come to accept. This is the saddest of all, dear ones, for the teachings of your culture are completely upside down, and that which you are taught to consume in all ways — thought, food, ideas — are all detrimental. The thoughts, ideas, and philosophies we share are what will bring you the happiness, abundance, and health that all of you wish for.

  The Church of long ago was wise in its use of fear and punishment, and for centuries you were murdered if you ever ventured into the realms of spirit. Do you think that is all over? It is not. The indoctrination continues, and you are all afraid of these energies, unless you realize what the lack of them is costing you.

So begin to educate yourselves on the truth of the matters at hand, and do not believe blindly in your culture’s teachings. Look around at the state of your cities, your families, and your lives. Many of you are on medications of some kind, and all are on something to quell the fears and the anxiety — alcohol, television, or prescription drugs. What is it you think these substances do? Mask unwanted symptoms? Yes, we agree, but the symptoms are the callings of a mind in deep pain, disconnected from its source of strength and the energy of love that it needs to be happy. So look carefully at all these things, and know that there is a world very different from the one that you see as normal. Your society is not normal in any way, and it leads you all to the slaughter with tales of consumerism and entertainment, safety and pleasure. But it is all lies, and you will not find your salvation in its prescriptions. But you will find peace, joy, health, and happiness in ours.

Three Forthcoming Workshops on A Course in Miracles


For up to date information on my workshops go to http://www.acfip.org/fws.html 


Germany 2020 Dates


Bonn Sat 13 and Sun 14 June - 2020
10am to 6pm



The Power of Forgiveness - 2020

Forgiveness is the key to happiness. 

Here is the answer to your search for peace. Here is the key to meaning in a world that seems to make no sense. Here is the way to safety in apparent dangers that appear to threaten you at every turn, and bring uncertainty to all your hopes of ever finding quietness and peace. Here are all questions answered; here the end of all uncertainty ensured at last. 
A Course in Miracles 
Lesson 121 

Forgiveness is at the heart of the practical teachings of A Course in Miracles. It removes all the obstacles to realising our divine, eternal, formless nature. It reveals the peace, joy and love put there by our Creator. Forgiveness is misunderstood by the world which sees problems outside ourselves instead of in our mind, where forgiveness can heal them. When we attack and judge another we are really attacking our own mind, the source of projections. What we find disturbing in the world are but symbols of what is unhealed in our minds. We live in a reflective universe.

This workshop will explore both the metaphysical and practical teachings of the Course. Exercises will be used to apply forgiveness to the problems in our minds, the only place true healing can occur.

We will explore the following topics from the Course:

Metaphysical teachings:
Metaphysics of forgiveness
Forgiveness saves time - the miracle
Creating a different reality with forgiveness-manifestation

Practical teachings:
The ego's world of guilt, denial and projection
Two faces: victim and victimiser
True and false forgiveness
Resistance to forgiveness
Ladder of forgiveness
Judgement and defenselessness
Healing the body through forgiveness


No knowledge of A Course in Miracles is required.

Healing Ourselves and Others

from the perspective of A Course in Miracles
- Michael Dawson -
www.acfip.org

Health Is Inner Peace....Health is the result of relinquishing all attempts to use the body lovelessly. 

The Holy Spirit is the only Therapist. He makes healing clear in any situation in which He is the Guide. You can only let Him fulfil His function. He needs no help for this. He will tell you exactly what to do to help anyone He sends to you for help, and will speak to him through you if you do not interfere. 
T-9.V.8:1-8  A Course in Miracles
  
Using the spiritual path of A Course in Miracles and its supplement - Psychotherapy: Purpose, Process and Practice - we will explore what true healing is: the return to our awareness of our spiritual identity. 

The cause of illness lies in the mind and not the body. By returning our awareness to the mind and forgiving the thought forms of judgement, attack and condemnation of ourselves and others we can return to a state of inner peace. The body will then return to a state of health.

To heal others, whether as a friend or as a psychotherapist, we need to learn to step aside and be guided in what to say and do . We need to remember “The Holy Spirit is the only Therapist.”

Practical exercises will be used to help understand the ego and its mechanisms of denial and projection. We will practise forgiveness and healing and turning within for guidance.

Topics also included:
Healing ourselves
• Reasons for Sickness
• Special Hate and Love relationships
• The Process of Illness
• How is Healing Accomplished
• Forgiveness
• Resistance to healing

Healing others (teachings for everyone who desires to relieve suffering in others)
• The A Course in Miracles approach to healing others
• The differences between the healed and unhealed healer 
• Purpose of Psychotherapy
• The Process of Psychotherapy
• Role of the Psychotherapist

An overview of the Course's metaphysical, psychological and spiritual teachings especially in regard to healing of the mind, body and relationships will be covered. 
No previous knowledge of the book A Course in Miracles is required.

Healing the Cause:
Since 1986 I have been conducting healing workshops in the UK and abroad, and have continually experimented to find healing and forgiveness exercises that are effective.  I have found that a particular exercise can be effective for one person but not another. Accordingly, I was led to develop a series of exercises. Over the years workshop participants asked if these exercises could be put onto audio cassettes and CDs so they could repeat them. This has resulted in the Healing the Cause - Exercise series - Tapes 1 to 4 (2 exercises on each tape) and CD1 and 2 (4 exercises on each CD)

CD - 3 Healing Exercises in English with German translation. 10 Euro
Content: 
Ex1. Forgiving Ourselves.

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTATIONS

About three times a week I send a short quotation from some spiritual teacher or poet to people who have requested some uplifting thoughts. I have included some below. If you wish I can add your name to the email list.


How long, O Son of God, will you maintain the game of sin? Shall we not put away these sharp-edged children's toys? How soon will you be ready to come home? Perhaps today? There is no sin. Creation is unchanged. Would you still hold return to Heaven back? How long, O holy Son of God, how long?

A Course in Miracles  Lesson 250


The true act of forgiveness requires you to see your own judgments as the crime, the one thing that keeps you from connecting with Source.

Making Love to God: The Path to Divine Sex
Tina Louise Spalding

Do understand that you are destined for enlightenment.
Co-operate with your destiny, don't go against it, don't thwart it.
Allow it to fulfil itself.
All you have to do is to give attention to the obstacles created by the foolish mind.

Nisargadatta Maharaj
I Am That

If you hate something and you focus all your energy on it, you will get more of it! 
So watch who you hate, how you hate, and when you hate, and make a different choice.
If you invest energetically in something, then you will get more of it. Have no doubt about it.
So know that the ripples of hatred and judgment that you send out will come back to you in the form of a magnified energy of that very same frequency, and that is something to contemplate, is it not?

You Can Free Yourself from the Karma of Chaos 
Channelled bTina Spalding

One is more likely to awaken through surrender than through seeking to waken. The effort to awaken is the effort of ego, whereas to surrender is to give up all efforts and to place oneself in the hands of a vast force that is more powerful than any realization of non duality.
When one finally gives up one's futile attempts to make reality conform to one's own wishes, and allows it to unfold on its own terms, all the energy that was tied up in foolish attempts to manipulate the universe is freed up.
