Today's the day! I'm excited to announce the opening of my new ACIM website!! https://www.miraculousliving.com. For the past several months I've been hard at work building a new site. It hosts my blog, but more importantly, it hosts the entire ACIM urtext material, including a full set of images and audio! It's not just documents on a page either, it's an entire web-based "application" for interacting with the course material including a suite of tools - just like an app on your phone or computer. You can use it in any web browser on any device. Here's some of the highlights...
“This may come as quite a shock. Every conceivable fear we have, every fearful thing the body’s five senses report is specifically designed as a convincing SHIELD OF FEAR that we unwittingly use to defend and protect our separate self from God’s ever-present Love, from His uninterrupted peace. The sole purpose of this shield of fear is to block awareness of the breathtaking innocence and invulnerability of our infinite Holy Self, the only Self we are.
Did you know that every fear regardless of the form of its appearance is ALWAYS the fear of God as the fear of Love itself? All that exists in reality IS God’s Love. There is no opposite. FEAR DOES NOT EXIST. The split-mind as the separate self that believes in fear, is convinced that IT is an enemy to changeless innocence, to Love, to God. In short, it believes that in order to continue it must shield itself from the peace, healing and Love of God. Thus its investment in fear acts as an unrecognized defense against our incorruptible Holy Self. It does this through its convenient projection of sin, guilt and fear thus ensuring its …”
Here we begin the unpacking process of understanding why the human communication chains are broken and how to re-align our method of being more effective, more authentic, more transparent, and honest in all our communication with ourselves and each other. Focus of the series: To realign our intentions using the Seven Keys to Authentic Communication. Come join us on this liberating journey.

ACIM - A Deep Dive into the Text
With Coreen Walson - Thursdays, 6:00 pm MDT USA, 00:00 (midnight)UTC [01:00 (1 AM) UTC, effective 11/7/21]
Join us as we make our way through the text of A Course in Miracles (Circle of Atonement Edition). This is not your average "Course study group," as we will be unpacking the deeper, holographic teachings of miracles, including literal healings of the body and overcoming death. The highly significant value of Holy Relationships will also be given the emphasis that it is due yet is hugely resisted by the ego. In fact, all of the areas that the ego is most resistant to will be explored with laser-like focus through the light of Christ to heal once and for all. We have experienced the power of joining with like-minded family members and are always in awe and reverence as to how the Holy Spirit comes through to reveal the Truth in a powerful and loving way.
All sessions will be recorded, and registration is necessary to attend live sessions and/or access recordings. This program is offered by donation.
Inspired offerings are presented in the Course's 365 workbook lessons, uploaded to our YouTube channel daily. This video series of ACIM lessons is something completely different! Together, Nouk Sanchez and Coreen Walson tap into the holographic messages of the lessons and the obvious significance beneath the words.
Thank you Nouk and Coreen for today's insightful presentation. Loved it.I was thinking about well-being and how that is the essence of creation. Any disturbance I think I see out there, or in the body, is an image that reflects a notion I am keeping active in my mind. Because it is active there, the mind projects it onto the face of reality in order to alert me to what I am keeping active. That may sound like a harsh message. It is not. Instead, the message that disturbances are random is the most unkind message imaginable. If a disturbing image is a reflection of a mistaken notion I am holding in my mind, then the place and the means to resolve it is right there, too. I turn the whole enchilada over to the internal teacher and ask the be guided by Its loving light. It will use my presence here as a communication channel for love. ~ Johanna Z. Thank you. You are really bringing these Lessons alive. ~ Julie B.
Thank you both again for your clarity and for your heartfelt sharing. Much appreciated! "When mythical me allows doubt about what it sees it doubts itself. That is why it refuses to doubt what it is seeing."(paraphrased) This really hit home. As well as: "Once we believe in something we value it. Once we value it, we invest in it. And if we believe all that, we can't extricate ourselves. We're always seeing what we're valuing. And it was a choice made before we saw it. That's the key." Yes! (Just quoting so you will know what resonated (and lots more, too much to mention here) and also to inspire casual browsers to actually listen to the presentation ...!) ~ Johanna Z.
Upcoming TTC Journey
The Total Transformation Course is an awesome year-long journey with mighty companions! We dive into the deeper teachings of ACIM and The End of Death, Volume One. We'll be using videos, audios, blogs, illuminating homework, and the key ingredient: sharing/joining in Holy Relationship with each other. Life-transforming!
Although perfect attendance in the live, weekly zoom sessions is not required, regular attendance is. A vital component of learning to be one with God is to engage and communicate directly with one or more Miracle Buddies. You cannot do it without this element. This is not a self-study course.

"I wrote this for the women I work with in prison, my prison Sisters. My hope was that they would see themselves in that scenario then let in the truth of God's ever-present, never absent, no matter what Love for them." I have heard back from each of them. It resonated in a powerful way. They're even sharing it with friends. The whole thing, from start to finish, has felt guided by Spirit."
Love, Judy H.
"Many of us have a feeling of “something’s missing” in our lives. And we somehow feel incomplete without it. It feels like it’s a very important part of us. Like something deep within our very being is absent, a hole in our soul. We experience a deep longing to feel complete, to somehow fill that hole.
And so we try anything and everything to fill that hole. The options are endless. I, personally have used food, alcohol, sex, beliefs that if I were only smarter, prettier, nicer, braver, more this and less that, I would somehow feel…"
What is Possible When We Extend the Miracle Impulse?
By Lisa Star
How often has every one of us felt a nudge or a prompting to share or comment about something that has been shared in class, and then decided not to say anything or thought within ourselves, "Oh, that will sound stupid," or "What do I know?" I know that I have been there and done that many times. Even when we are out in the world and feel a nudge to say an encouraging word to someone, or share a smile with a stranger because we are feeling the Love and Joy in our Being. What blessings are we denying the opportunity to extend because we are choosing to remain silent and small (in fear)?
For myself, there have been times when I have shared in class and then doubted myself because I didn't see any response, but then someone will later say to me how they were glad that I had shared because they had been feeling the same way. I mention this because this happened recently in our HRJ class. Nicola had shared an idea about the "God Hole" with us since she had been inspired by a sister's sharing in another class. I could identify with this idea and felt it was so true.
Judy H. had heard this as well, decided to put down on paper her inspirations and then sent it to the Sisters she works with in the prison system. As a result of reading what she had written, they communicated to her that they had been extremely blessed by this!
So, coming back to Nicola. What if she had decided to doubt herself and not listen to that inner guidance, that voice within, or even our first sister who had shared the idea in another class? How many people would NOT have received the blessing? I'm sure that this will continue to extend and bless. This is just one example from a moment of sharing. There could be many more that we haven't heard about, or that haven't even happened yet.
So, let us all be vigilant when we hear or feel an inner prompting to share a thought, insight or kindness. We never know who or how many will be blessed by us doing so. We just need to trust in that extension of Love, and that in some miraculous way or form that Love will ALWAYS increase and bless, whether we are aware of it or not...and as we give/share the Spirit and Love, we always receive :)
The End of Death guides us in a practical and profound journey through the deeper teachings of Jesus in A Course In Miracles. Exercises are given to exhume the deeply hidden and unconscious storehouse of guilt and fear that is held in the split mind and used by the ego thought system to attack the body and perpetuate the idea of separation. We are answering the call of the heart to awaken in Christ and we are now choosing to use the body for Spirit's purpose.
This prayer came to Facilitator, Judy Benton, through the Seven Essential Principles of Quantum Forgiveness.
"Oh Lord, with joyful gratitude, there is only Your Loving Will in all the Universe. I know that nothing can be a stronghold against Your Loving will in any way.
All thoughts of hurt or harm have only come from those thoughts which I generated in my mind. And I want and need those thoughts of error eliminated and healed more than any physical healing I desire.
I must look beyond what my body can only seem to project as reality. In Truth, it cannot be true. It will only cause me to suffer from the belief I am separate, unworthy, and undeserving of God's Love. I cannot choose to believe any illusion is more difficult to remove than any other for they are all the same illusions, separation from God.
I choose now to accept the Atonement in my mind realizing that in Truth, nothing could be further from the Truth.
As I ask and accept that the Holy Spirit remove all of the illusory appearances of fear and guilt, my heart is healed and renewed in God's Loving Joy and Will. It is now complete."
YES is my
pulsing of Life.
Greeting each breath.
We so appreciate this journey which we could not take without you!
