Welcome to 2016!

Hello my friends!

I wanted to give you 2 inspirational quotes to remind you throughout the year that you are LOVE and you are LOVED!

“There is a place in you where there is perfect peace. There is a place in you where nothing is impossible. There is a place in you where the strength of God abides.” – A Course in Miracles

The “you” the Course is addressing is you as MIND, not as a body.

“I relax and cast aside all mental burdens, allowing God to express through me His perfect love, peace, and wisdom.” – Paramahansa Yogananda

My wish for you is a year filled with miracles and that you allow the love and joy of Who you really are to flow through all your actions, and be the content through which your words are formed.

Be well everyone!

Blessings,
Jackie

Be Gentle & Patient with Yourself

24th Hour BugHello friends,

If you’re at a standstill in your life be patient with yourself.  You may be integrating new knowledge or a new awareness.  You may be shifting to a higher vibration.   The Divine timing for your endeavor or project may not be right.

Changing direction or moving forward in life is a process.

It’s  difficult to make job, relationship or lifestyle changes without a little fear creeping up! Be gentle with yourself; allow time to get quiet and “tune in” to your intuition, Spirit Guides or Higher Self.  What lesson are you learning? Are you shedding an old part of yourself that no longer fits? Are you integrating personal changes due to increased Spiritual practice or commitment to love yourself more? What are you afraid of?

Ask questions and be open to the answers you receive.  No one can be YOU better than YOU! Let your light shine.  Hold space for others to do the same.  Smile a lot! Laugh a lot! Be light.

Love & blessings,

Jackie 🙂

Awakening to a Different Calling

24th Hour BugHello friends,

I want to share an insight that popped into my mind while walking around my neighborhood this morning.

Many of you may feel gently prompted in a new direction: career, relationship, philanthropic endeavor or hobby.  It will be important to trust and follow inner guidance in the months and years ahead.  There is a wonderful window of opportunity for lightworkers, spiritual seekers, and anyone looking to be of service, to discover, embrace  and channel their soul’s wishes and gifts.

If you encounter resistance from friends, family members or significant others, feel confident, have faith and keep moving forward on your path.  It is wonderful to have our loved ones supporting us and they often will.  However, there will be times when you explain your process or insights and others won’t get it.  It’s OK because how could they know what’s in your heart? The important thing is that YOU know.  You will be supported in endeavors and life changes that are Divinely guided.

So stay true to yourself and your life path! Guidance from Spirit is always available – remember to ask and be willing to hear the answers!

Love & blessings to you all!

“A Course in Miracles” Insight

Jackie Lora Jones PortraitOften when we have “problems” in our lives, we hope or pray for “specific” solutions.  No doubt this is how we’ve been taught, listening to the ego all these years.  The Course teaches that the world and body being unreal (part of the illusion of separation from our creator) means that our problems and answers cannot be found there.  Rather, the one problem is our BELIEF in the world and body.  Since beliefs are in the mind, that is the only place they can be undone.   We can use our power to choose the Holy Spirit’s  thought system that reminds us the problems we “seem” to experience in the world are part of the dream of separation.

Seeking no answer in the world can be a relief.  Choosing peace instead of a complicated agenda helps undo error by addressing the REAL problem and correcting error in the mind by choosing the Right-Minded teacher – the Holy Spirit.  Then when taking action it will be inspired action having chosen the Right-Minded teacher.

Understanding the metaphysics of the Course’s thought system is necessary, but practice is what will produce the EXPERIENCE of peace.

Each day we can remember there are two teachers in the mind and only one of them is real.  Those who seek controversy (listening to the ego’s voice) will find it.  Those that seek peace (the Holy Spirit’s voice) will find it.  Sometimes we have to choose in every moment! We can keep practicing and be gentle with ourselves!

Be well everyone,

Jackie
