A note from Elisabeth:
As student and teacher (facilitator) of A course in Miracles for over 25 years has confirmed that Jesus is indeed my guide.
My first conscious contact with Jesus was at the age of 12 years old when I attended Church and decided I wanted Jesus to take my hand and lead my life.
Jesus a Master teacher teaches me every single day and leads all of my healing sessions. I apply the principles of A Course in Miracles to everything I do every single moment of my life. I surrender my every move I make to the Holy spirit and ask for guidance in everything I do.
Notes from A Course in Miracles
This is how A Course in Miracles begins.
It makes a fundamental distinction between the real and the unreal; between knowledge and perception. Knowledge is truth, under one law, the law of love or God.
Truth is unalterable, eternal and unambiguous. It can be unrecognized, but it cannot be changed. It applies to everything that God created, and only what He created is real.
It is beyond learning because it is beyond time and process.
It has no opposite; no beginning and no end. It merely is.
The world of perception, on the other hand, is the world of time, of change, of beginnings and endings. It is based on interpretation, not on facts. It is the world of birth and death, founded on the belief in scarcity, loss, separation and death. It is learned rather than given, selective in its perceptual emphases, unstable in its functioning, and inaccurate in its interpretations.
This is how it came to be, and this is how I choose to teach it.
Just like the Course came to the one who transcribed the Manuscript, so came to me the request to run another Course in Miracles group.
I am often asked what is a Course in Miracles, and who is it for. I answer always with the same reply, it is for everyone who is seeking peace and better way to live.
There are many ways, there are many roads to travel and we never need to prove that which is; for what is eternal and unchangeable is, nothing more need be said.
In all I do I remind myself that I am only a channel, a facilitator for the Divine to work through me.
I am not the healer, but the one who receives healing from the source and passes it on to those who seek my particular gifts.
I ask in all I do, to be guided and taught. We are all teachers and we are all students to one another. We all have the ability to reach to the heavens, to talk to the Angels and listen to the guidance of the Holy (whole) spirit.
I personally have studied the Course and shared it's teachings for about twenty years. It was in a time of great transformation and learning. I read every book imaginable on the subject of self- realisation, personal development and more.
I came across the Course in a second hand Bookstore. The hard cover version. Three books which contained, the Lessons, Teachers Manual and Text. I began to study and did the three hundred sixty five lessons many times over.
I have shared the Course with people who have come out of rehab many years ago and the Miracles and transformation in those people are beyond words.
But then that is what this Course is about. It is a self-study course to help the individual to undo their particular thought system, from FEAR TO LOVE.
That is all it takes, that is all that is.
If it is not Love it is fear, and fear comes in many disguises.
The more I live the teachings, the more my life seems to work. There are many paths one may travel to gain understanding, many roads to travel. The seeker will find his/her path.
The Course instructs about the nature of Miracles which are inherent in each and every interaction we have with one another.
When we read about miracles, we often conjure up ideas of how a Miracle is supposed to happen. We may think of the parting of the sea, or restoring sight to a blind man…………of course they are miracles……………..but how do they occur????
What is a miracle?
The course explains that if we call for a Miracle it is a calling for our perception to be changed, we ask to see things differently. Healing begins in the mind.
Inviting the Holy Spirit then enables for a Miracle to come forth.
It is said that every meeting we have with another, has either the potential to heal (bless) or dis-empower (hurt)
We teach either love or we teach fear, but teach we must. If only love is real and all else illusion, it would seem when we fear we are temporary out of balance, we succumb to the darkness of our imaginary fears.
The thing we fear the most is loss……………….
We fear someone will take our place, we fear someone will take our lover we fear someone will take the very core of our existence. We loose the ground beneath our very feet.
We loose our way, we become blinded by unfounded truth. As spiritual aspirants and truth seekers we often blame and shame ourselves about the lack of progress we seem to have made. But this is not so, for every experience is a valuable lesson. Each and every relationship we have will either deepen us in truth or take us further way from it.
We all live in the vast ocean of collective thought, a pool of energies which we are tapped into………….we all have the ability to become aware of the thoughts we think by the experiences and situations we are in.
There is no escaping ourselves. As a spiritual teacher and energy medicine practitioner I facilitate change for the individual. Am I exempt from feeling emotional pain, or from negative psychic intrusions, no I am not, but when I do, I am honest enough to admit; I am not at peace therefore I must have chosen fear. I am delighted to share my gift as a teacher and peace lover with you.
So let us begin by asking for a Miracle.
Over the years I have interacted with many people.
The common thread which seems to run through each and every story I have heard is the desire to lead happy and healthy prosperous lives.
We seem to start out with much enthusiasm but life does present us with challenges and so oftentimes there is disappointment and the inability to keep going.
I have found the biggest hindrance for a lot of people seems to be their inability to letting go of what no longer is.
And there is it, right there,……………..letting go of what no longer is……..the past………………is no longer. It is now only of values as a point of reference.
Every relationship issue allows us to change our perception, the shift is from fear to Love. From judgment to acceptance.
Every meeting, every encounter is an opportunity to love, heal and bless.
If you knew Who walks beside you on THIS way, which YOU have chosen, fear would be impossible.
You do NOT know, because the journey into darkness has been long and cruel, and you have gone deep into it.
A little flicker of your eyelids, closed so long, has not yet been sufficient to give you confidence in yourselves, so long despised. You go TOWARD love, still hating it, and TERRIBLY afraid of its judgment upon you.
And you do NOT realize that you are NOT afraid of love, but only OF WHAT YOU MADE OF IT.
