Judgment the cause?

March 8, 2016

Hi Everyone,

How’s the Christmas Challenge coming? Anything fabulous showing up because you’re now in the habit of silently saying to everyone you meet: “You are perfect just the way you are, and I love you.”?

I’ve noticed two things:

  • Life seems to flow with less struggle
  • And, I’ve become very aware of all my judgmental thinking.

The judgmental thinking has been a big “Wow”.

I stand in total amazement of the mental chatter that constantly goes through my mind that hasn’t a thing to do with acceptance or compassion.

People Feel
The thing is that even if you don’t voice those judgments, people feel them.

We actually feel now others really think about us; they don’t have to say a word.

People feel it when you are criticizing or failing to understand their view of a situation.

People consult with me when their life is in turmoil.  When we meet via telephone for a session with me, you and the angels, we ask to be taken to the source of the difficulty, and we are.

However, as I have dealt with my judgments and criticalness, a new cause or source has appeared.

New Cause
So, could your judgments of others be the reason your business isn’t getting off the ground, or you’re having career/employment problems, or you’re lonely?

To find out, I’m issuing a new challenge:

For the rest of this year, I offer only acceptance and compassion to all I meet. I immediately send my judgments, my criticisms, my doubts back to the nothingness from whence they came. I stand guard on my tongue, my thoughts and my feelings.

And, of course, there is no way I could even begin to do this without help from the angels.

Angels of All of Us
Angels of all of us,

Thank you for causing us to see a possible cause of our suffering. Wow! What a revelation!

The cause is us.

So, as of right here and right now, we pledge to offer only acceptance and compassion to all we meet. We know that you stand with us and will guide us as we learn how to do this.

And, we know that you will first teach us to accept ourselves and to give ourselves compassion.

We are open to doing this. We are open to being an accepting, welcoming, compassionate people.

Wow!

Thank you for reminding us that there is a Power for Good in the Universe and all of us can use it to bring good into our own life.

Being accepting and compassionate brings good. It is a use of this Power for Good.

We give thanks that we know this and that you stand with us.

And so it is.

In the spirit of my Christmas Challenge: You are perfect just the way you are, and I love you.

Work Worsens

Jan. 27, 2015

Hi Everyone,

About a year or so ago, about the time of the U.S. government shutdown, a group of American federal (government) employees came to me for help.

These are not the folks in Washington, D.C. who earn well over $100,000 a year, but folks earning less than $50,000 a year with families to support.

The loss of income was creating havoc so we asked the angels for help in increasing income.

When the shutdown ended and certain government employees were given their lost wages, the group thought their work troubles were over. They returned yesterday.

Work Worsens
It seems that work has gotten worse. Their stress has multiplied many times. Their quotas—how much they are to get done in an hour—have increased. Their managers and bosses—never pleasant people before—have gotten meaner and nastier. This seems to be the result of recent budget cuts by the Congress; however, none in the group were certain of the cause.

Heart-felt Desires
After much discussion—this took most of Monday—the group decided on three heart-felt desires:

  1. To survive this present circumstance physically, mentally and emotionally healthy and strong
  2. To be kind, compassionate and empathic to all involved in this situation including bosses and managers
  3. And, to have work that brings joy, satisfaction, recognition and the money amounts each prefers.

Yes. A tall order. One that most certainly will take the help of the angels. Let’s ask them now.

Angels of All of Us
Angels of all of us,
We are grateful for your presence. We give thanks for your support and nurturance. Today, we ask for guidance.

Angels of all of us,
We know you are always near and that you know the circumstances and situations of our life. We need not repeat the details. You know them. You witnessed them. You are aware of what is happening in our work life.

We ask for guidance about how to survive and relieve this situation. We ask that you remind us of all the actions we must to do rid ourselves of stress and the ugly thoughts and reactions that occur when humans are overworked and under compensated.  We thank you for these reminders and encouragements.

We ask for support in being kind and compassionate to those who are causing the stressful situations and to all those who are involved in this experience. Help us to respond correctly but pleasantly. Help us to put out the fires instead of expanding them. Help us be the clean, clear waters of peace.

We ask for help in finding work that brings us joy, satisfaction, recognition and the money amounts we prefer. Most of us don’t want to leave our present employer. However, we recognize that this might be necessary. Guide us to the right work environment and work for us. Help us to make good decisions. Help us to let go with ease, doing the least harm possible.

We thank you for helping us meet this challenge and to have serenity. That is, we recognize what we can and cannot change; we do what is necessary for us to be in the flow of love.

And so it is.

Peace,

Barbara
