1. Individual healing sessions via Zoom

I have been giving healing sessions for over 30 years, and have now decided to offer healing sessions via Zoom. 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 Zoom 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.

Finding the Peace of God - Michael Dawson




Forget not that the motivation for this course is the attainment and the keeping of the state of peace. Given this state the mind is quiet, and the condition in which God is remembered is attained
A Course in Miracles.T-24.in.1. 


Below you will find selections from A Course in Miracles® which will help you to return to the peace of God. They are intended as reminders to what you have studied and practised in the Course.


1 - Purpose of your day

As you awake in the morning set the purpose of your day to find the peace of God in all situations you encounter. For example, if you need to talk to your boss about a pay rise you think you deserve the first priority is to try and be at peace with your boss and the outcome of the interview - whether you get a raise or not. Thus in all situations that require some practical steps to be taken you approach on two levels. Level one, the first priority, is to seek and find peace in the situation. Level two, the second priority, is achieving the goal - if possible. 

The peace of God is everything I want. The peace of God is my one goal; the aim of all my living here, the end I seek, my purpose and my function and my life, while I abide where I am not at home. 
Lesson 205

Another example could be sickness. You try different ways to get better (second priority) but seek, with the help of Jesus or the Holy Spirit, to remain at peace (first priority) no matter if you get better or not .

Attaining and the keeping of peace now becomes the PURPOSE of everything you do during the day. It does not matter what happens to you as you now view all happenings as classrooms where you can learn forgiveness, truth and therefore peace. You could even find yourself in disastrous circumstances (according to your ego) such as a car crash, but with the purpose of peace as your first priority you could turn that situation into a blessing. This is not easy to do as your ego will encourage you to view such a situation as a justified victim. 

It takes great learning to understand that all things, events, encounters and circumstances are helpful. M -4.I.4:5

This is the message of the crucifixion (Text - 6.in). Jesus was not upset about what happened to him and would like us to use his example to encourage us to find peace in less demanding trials.


2 - Start the day with God

.... as soon as possible after waking take your quiet time, continuing a minute or two after you begin to find it difficult. You may find that the difficulty will diminish and drop away. If not, that is the time to stop. M -16.4.7:9

This section in the Manual asks you to join with God and foster quiet thoughts about Him. In four below Jesus stresses that remembering three things about ourselves is particularly important. 

1 - That God has created us peaceful
2 - That God has created us joyful and
3 - A thought of limitless release

Thus in your quiet time with God you can remind yourself of who you really are - joyful, peaceful and without limit, and that you have an ever present source of help in Jesus or the Holy Spirit. It can be a time of joining with God in gratitude for what He created - an eternal, formless, loving Christ, and for the Help to return you to that realisation. After this period of quiet thinking it may feel natural for your mind to remain relatively quiet and receptive to God's love for you.


3 - End the day with God

.... just before going to sleep is a desirable time to devote to God. It sets your mind into a pattern of rest, and orients you away from fear. If it is expedient to spend this time earlier, at least be sure that you do not forget a brief period,--not more than a moment will do,--in which you close your eyes and think of God. M -16.5.6:8

Here you are being asked to repeat two above but now at the end of the day.


4 - Remember God throughout the day

There is one thought in particular that should be remembered throughout the day. It is a thought of pure joy; a thought of peace, a thought of limitless release, limitless because all things are freed within it. M-16.6.1:2

Jesus is encouraging you to maintain the current of remembering Who you are and joining with God that you started the day with. Remember you are fully protected by God's love in all situations today and that a Guide accompanies you in all situations you have dedicated to peace, truth and forgiveness.


5 - Guidance

The presence of fear is a sure sign that you are trusting in your own strength. W-pI.48.3.1

If the presence of fear is felt during the day it is showing you that you must be relying on the ego's guidance and not the Holy Spirit. Whenever you lose your peace Jesus asks you to consider the following:

I must have decided wrongly, because I am not at peace. 
I made the decision myself, but I can also decide otherwise. 
I want to decide otherwise, because I want to be at peace. 
I do not feel guilty, because the Holy Spirit will undo all the consequences of my wrong decision if I will let Him. 
I choose to let Him, by allowing Him to decide for God for me. 
T-5.VII.6.7:11

It is not necessary for you to ask for guidance on every detail of your day. Instead ...

If you have made it a habit to ask for help when and where you can, you can be confident that wisdom will be given you when you need it. Prepare for this each morning, remember God when you can throughout the day, ask the Holy Spirit's help when it is feasible to do so, and thank Him for His guidance at night. And your confidence will be well founded indeed. M-29.5.8:10


6 - Understanding Anger

Throughout your day irritations and anger will often arise to take your peace away. When this takes place, unhealed and unforgiven aspects of yourself are being mirrored back to you from your environment. For example, if you get upset about someone's seemingly unfair treatment of yourself, then the situation is showing you that you are capable of treating others unfairly, albeit perhaps in different forms.

Learn this, and learn it well, for it is here delay of happiness is shortened by a span of time you cannot realize. You never hate your brother for his sins, but only for your own. Whatever form his sins appear to take, it but obscures the fact that you believe them to be yours, and therefore meriting a "just" attack. T-31.III.1.4:6

When a difficult situation arises in your life the ego is quick to draw on your past experience and immediately label the situation as negative. This provides the justification for anger and attack. However, Jesus reminds us:

Perhaps it will be helpful to remember that no one can be angry at a fact. It is always an interpretation that gives rise to negative emotions, regardless of their seeming justification by what appears as facts. Regardless, too, of the intensity of the anger that is aroused. M-17.4.1:3

Whenever you lose your peace, a hidden and denied aspect of yourself is asking to be healed. If you can take back your projections of anger from the world and not judge yourself for finding the cause in your own mind, you open yourself to healing from the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit asks of you but this; bring to Him every secret you have locked away from Him. Open every door to Him, and bid Him enter the darkness and lighten it away. At your request He enters gladly. He brings the light to darkness if you make the darkness open to Him. But what you hide He cannot look upon. T-14.6.1:5

Prayer is a way of asking for something. It is the medium of miracles. But the only meaningful prayer is for forgiveness, because those who have been forgiven have everything. T-3.V.6.1:3


7 - Humility

Little progress can be made along the path to peace unless humility is developed. Your ego mind is arrogant, believing it knows the best course of action in all events. It bases its judgement on memory, thinking that the more experience it has gathered the better it can judge present circumstances. In contrast, the Course reminds you that if you think you are a body, operating in time and space, you are insane! And how can the insane know what is best for them? Instead, Jesus counsels us to resign as our own teacher and seek guidance from the Holy Spirit:

You Understand Nothing

When your peace is threatened or disturbed in any way, 
say to yourself,

"I do not know what anything, including this, means.
And so I do not know how to respond to it.
And I will not use my own past learning as the light 
to guide me now."

By this refusal to attempt to teach yourself what you do not know, the Guide Whom God has given you will speak to you. He will take His rightful place in your awareness the instant you abandon it, and offer it to Him. T-14.XI.6.6:11 


8 - Rules for Decision

At the start of Chapter 30 in the Text will be found a set of very practical rules on how to achieve a peaceful day. Actually, only the first rule is needed and reminds you, once again, that you only have a choice of listening to two counsellors in your mind - the ego or the Holy Spirit. And only the Holy Spirit's counsel will give you peace. 

Rules for Decision
Rule 1 - Today I will make no decisions by myself. 
Rule 2 - If I make no decisions by myself, this is the day that will be given me.(peaceful)
To help reinforce your learning Jesus uses rule 2 as a reminder, to be used throughout the day.
Rule 3 - I have no question. I forgot what to decide.
A major problem to be avoided is setting up your own answers to a problem which you then ask the Holy Spirit to choose between. See the previous notes on humility.
Rule 4 - At least I can decide I do not like what I feel now. 
Rules 4 to 7 are ways to return to your goal of a peaceful day if you have started listening to the voice of the ego again. 
Rule 5 - And so I hope I have been wrong. 
Rule 6 - I want another way to look at this. 
Rule 7 - Perhaps there is another way to look at this. 
What can I lose by asking? 


9 - Don't fight yourself

I want the peace of God. 
To say these words is nothing. But to mean these words is everything. If you could but mean them for just an instant, there would be no further sorrow possible for you in any form; in any place or time. Heaven would be completely given back to full awareness, memory of God entirely restored, the resurrection of all creation fully recognized. 
W-pI.185.1.1:4


Although one part of yourself is looking for another way to find peace and joy there is still a powerful identification with the mind of the ego - the desire to keep your specialness. By specialness is meant the attraction to being a separate, unique individual that is different from others and wishes to be self-sufficient and in sole control of its life. This is how the seeming separation from God began - the desire for specialness instead of the oneness of Christ.

As you attempt to follow these steps to finding the peace of God the desire to remain special will always act in opposition and attempt, often successfully, to draw you back to the advice of the ego which is terrified of the new direction you are undertaking. For as you move along on this journey eventually God's love will shine the ego, and therefore your specialness, away. Thus Jesus kindly states:

And if you find resistance strong and dedication weak, you are not ready. Do not fight yourself
T-30.I.6:7

Instead, forgive yourself for not forgiving. Forgive yourself for not wanting peace and preferring specialness. You are not as far along the spiritual path as you perhaps once thought. From this the path of humility can open up and you can learn to smile at your ego and its desire to separate from God. This is wonderful progress as this approach will diminish the guilt that keeps you from finding God's peace.

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.

Accept the world as it is - Jesus


Channelled by Tina Spalding


Every single experience here shows you something that you need to see whether it is good or bad in your opinion. If it is unpleasant and causes suffering, it tells you that you're out of alignment with love and you need to readjust your thinking and your focus. And that is a benefit to you. It is the only way that you can feel where you are off track. When you are on track, when you are peaceful, when you are excited when you are inspired, when you are feeling creative, and generous, and magnanimous and happy to be here that means that you are on the right track. And ironically it is your acceptance of life with all of its ups and downs that allows you to transcend it in the end. As long as you are in judgment of it, hating it judging it, you are condemned to stay in it. So it is through the relinquishment of judgment and the appreciation of truth that you will come to a place of full alignment with love and eventually you will get to move on to your next assignment, which will be once you have mastered love. 

It is not a difficult assignment once you have done it. But of course, I (Jesus) struggled with the same fears and judgments and attachments to the world that you are struggling with. And it is important for you to know that you can align yourself with love. And as you do so life becomes better and better, easier and easier. It is only your resistance and your judgment and your fears and your hatreds that cause it to be such a difficult journey, In alignment with love when you become defenseless, open, willing to participate fully and completely in your own creation then the real joy begins and you begin to see that the pain and suffering of fear was unnecessary. But when you are in it, you are in it. It is hard to see out of the distortion of fear. But that is why the lessons of A Course in Miracles are so important. We go with you into your mind we hold your hand and we explain to you what is happening and what you are doing to yourself through your misunderstanding and through your lack of comprehension of the grand projection. The grand projection is that everything that seems separate from you is not and the only way to end the projection is through the acceptance and love of all that is. It is in your benefit to begin to see reality this way. And the unreality of unforgiveness and judgment is something that you want to let go of. 

The ageing of your bodies is caused by your resistance and judgment. And so when you see lines on your face and you see a decrepitude creeping in it is because you have been resisting love. And so open to love, love yourself, love your family, love your pets, love the world and love your enemies. So pray for your enemies. That is one of the most powerful healing practices that you can participate in.

Material from ETs

I introduce ET material from loving, wise and non-judgemental sources in most newsletters. I realise this is a controversial subject so I want to introduce below the science behind the possibility of other life forms in this universe, some of which are far in advance of us.

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 and quickly visit us here. 
I believe many of them have much to teach us especially as some have been through our current challenges a very long time ago.

We have a long history of UFOs and of course there has been a lot more activity in the last few decades, since we invented the atomic bomb, and they are very concerned about that and the fact that we might use it again.
Paul Hellyer - Canada’s former defense minister

“The phenomenon of UFOs does exist, and it must be treated very seriously.”
Mikhail Gorbachev

Jobs for light workers - wisdom from the Arcturians

Extract from:
Signs, Symbols & Synchronicities & What They Mean įThe 9D Arcturian Council, Channeled by Daniel Scranton

People are recognizing the significance of a sign or a synchronicity, and people are more likely to follow their internal, intuitive guidance, and this is raising the vibration of the consciousness there on Earth. You all who are awake are leading humanity in these ways. You are becoming more likely to tell others about your experiences, and as you do you help so many to understand what they have been experiencing. You can normalize a synchronicity for another person by telling them what you know the synchronicity means to you. 

Those who have yet to awaken are sometimes even afraid of the synchronicities they experience. And so, this is another way in which the Awakened Collective is helping humanity. Continue to tell your stories, write your books, your blogs, and make your videos, because you make it easier for others to find you and what you have to share, what you have come to know.

Most people have become disillusioned to some extent by whatever beliefs they were raised on and are looking for guidance from those who have that wisdom within them. Wisdom comes from experience, and you all, because of the choices you’ve made, have had more experiences than the average person has. Therefore, you have much to offer them. You can show others the way to their internal guidance by demonstrating how you do it, what you look for and listen for, and you will find that more people are fascinated by those signs and symbols than you might think. 

….. The best way to demonstrate to someone else how the universe works is to live by those truths that you have come to know to be true. Let them see you in action, and then describe to them what is happening and how you are doing it, how you are manifesting the experiences you want to have. 

You have all done so much work on yourselves, and those of you who have been brave enough to put yourselves out there and speak your truth, you are helping to raise the level of consciousness there on Earth, and from what we can see, that trend will be continuing through the remainder of 2022.

Requirements For Awakening 
- from the perspective of A Course in Miracles  

Why wait for Heaven? Those who seek the light are merely covering their eyes. 
The light is in them now. Enlightenment is but a recognition, not a change at all. 
ACIM Lesson 188

To awaken to our spiritual reality - an eternal, formless  spirit - ACIM emphasises  the following:

  • Desire awakening above all - manifestation
  •  Realise you know nothing of importance - humility 
  •  Seek and find the blocks to love - denial and projection
  • I need do nothing - being guided
  • Being not doing - actions flow from beingness
  • Develop trust - the ladder home
  • Forgiveness  - the fast path
  • End seeking - the trap of searching

Exercises will be used to apply forgiveness and will call on guidance for the problems in our minds, the only place true healing can occur.

No knowledge of A Course in Miracles is required.
The workshop will be in English with German translation.

Healing Ourselves and Others (to be confirmed)

from the perspective of A Course in Miracles
- Michael Dawson -

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

I am here only to be truly helpful.
I am here to represent him who sent me.
I do not have to worry about what to say or do, 
because he who sent me will direct me.
I am content to be wherever he wishes 
knowing he goes there with me.
I will be healed as I let him teach me to heal.
T-2.V.18:2-6   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.

Online Zoom workshops


Relationships - Our Path Home.  
- finding peace and growth in the mirror of relationships 
A Course in Miracles Zoom workshop
In English with German translation

 - Last part Sunday, 12 March 2023 - 
Zoom allows for questions, sharings, 
meeting in virtual rooms for pair exercises and sharings.

By Michael Dawson

"When you meet anyone, remember it is a holy encounter.
As you see him you will see yourself. As you treat him you will treat yourself. 
As you think of him you will think of yourself. 
Never forget this, for in him  you will find yourself or lose yourself." 
from A Course in Miracles T-8.III.4.

Our relationships can become our daily classroom of forgiveness. "Relationships" does not just refer to our partners but everyone we meet. How we react to our family, colleagues, strangers, animals, people in the media mirrors what is contained in our minds. Daily we walk around in a hall of mirrors and when we lose our peace we are being shown something unhealed, unforgiven in our minds. 

The Course seeks to take our difficult relationships and change their direction towards the goal of holy relationships in which we practice honesty and forgiveness.

As we learn to look at ourselves and others without judgement (forgiveness) we gradually remove the obstacles to the love and peace within us. Judgement is gradually replaced by compassion, and instead of separation, true acceptance, friendship and genuine intimacy become possible.

The workshop will contain exercises to help understand and heal painful dynamics found in ego-based relationships, allowing our natural state of peace and joy to be uncovered. 

(No previous knowledge of the book A Course in Miracles is required.)

---------------------------------------------------------------

Beziehungen - Unser Weg nach Hause. 

- Frieden finden und Wachstum erleben im Spiegel von Beziehungen - Ein Seminar basierend auf „Ein Kurs in Wundern“ 

"Wenn du jemandem begegnest, so erinnere dich daran, dass es eine heilige Begegnung ist.
Wie du ihn siehst, wirst du dich selber sehen. Wie du ihn behandelst, wirst du dich selbst behandeln. Wie du über ihn denkst, wirst du über dich selbst denken. Vergiss dies nie, denn in ihm wirst du dich selbst finden oder verlieren."
Ein Kurs in Wundern T-8.III.4. 

Unsere Beziehungen können zu unserem täglichen Klassenzimmer der Vergebung werden. "Beziehungen" bezieht sich nicht nur auf unsere Partner, sondern auf jeden, dem wir begegnen. Wie wir auf unsere Familie, Kollegen, Fremde, Tiere, Menschen in den Medien reagieren, spiegelt das wider, was in unserem Verstand enthalten ist. Täglich laufen wir in einem Spiegelkabinett herum, und wenn wir unseren Frieden verlieren, wird uns etwas gezeigt, das in unserem Geist noch nicht geheilt, noch nicht vergeben ist. 

Der Kurs zielt darauf ab, unsere schwierigen Beziehungen in eine Richtung zu lenken, die zu heiligen Beziehungen führt, in denen wir Ehrlichkeit und Vergebung praktizieren. 

Wenn wir lernen, uns selbst und andere ohne Verurteilung (Vergebung) zu betrachten, beseitigen wir allmählich die Hindernisse, die der Liebe und dem Frieden in uns im Wege stehen. An die Stelle des Urteils tritt allmählich Mitgefühl, und anstelle von Trennung werden wahre Akzeptanz, Freundschaft und echte Intimität möglich. 

Der Workshop enthält Übungen, die helfen, schmerzhafte Dynamiken in Ego-Beziehungen zu verstehen und zu heilen, so dass unser natürlicher Zustand von Frieden und Freude sichtbar werden kann.

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTATIONS

About three times a week I send a 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. Email me at:  mdawson@acfip.org


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.
