Every two weeks I present a theme on EFT Radio from A Course in Miracles in which I try to connect the principles of miracles and healing to what we do with EFT tapping and the Ramos Clearing Technique.
Beginning with January, 2014, the topics focused on the Lessons of ACIM in order. But starting with the program on July 3, 2015, we started focusing on the Text of ACIM. The radio shows also started to alternate first in English and then Spanish.
Please contact me with your feedback and questions!
with A Course in Miracles Lessons 321 to 330
January 2, 2015
What is Creation? Do we have creative power and what is its Source? Is it possible to create ourselves or have we already been created?
A Course in Miracles teaches, “Creation is the sum of all God’s Thoughts, in number infinite, and everywhere without all limit. Only love creates, and only like itself.” Pg 461 Lessons.
Today, with Eloisa Ramos we explore the creation definition and why it is the opposite of all illusions and why it can never suffer loss.
The Cause or creative Source of what we are, we call by many names, God, Creator, Universe, Life Force, Life Energy, etc. because words cannot capture the knowledge of what we are and therefore, what our Source is. Yet, “God’s memory is in our holy minds, which know their oneness and their unity with their Creator.” Pg. 461 Lessons.
Today we ask, “Let our function be only to let this memory return, only to let God’s Will be done on earth, only to be restored to sanity, and to be but as God created us.” Pg. 461 Lessons.
What Does Ego Mean?
With A Course in Miracles Lessons 331 to 340
January 16, 2015
Do some people have big egos? Are some people egoless? What are we perceiving or not perceiving in people when we answer “yes” to these questions? What does ego mean anyway?
What we express witnesses to our thinking. Our thoughts will either reflect spirit or ego and will express love or fear. "To be egocentric is to be dis-spirited, but to be Self-centered in the right sense is to be inspired or in spirit." Pg. 52 Txt.
The Voice for God or Holy Spirit, speaks the thoughts of God which are loving because they recognize that together we are one Self united in the Source of all creation and so, attack is impossible. The ego is the voice for a system of thought that is fearful because it represents the belief that we are self-created, separate body/egos that can attack, suffer and die. Only one thought system is real, the other illusion.
Join with Eloisa Ramos as we explore, with the guidance of Lessons 331-340 the definition of ego and why the ego is insatiable and always wants more.
“The ego is idolatry;..." (pg. 467 Lessons). "An idol is a means for getting more. And it is this that is against God’s Will. God has not many Sons, but only One. Who can have more, and who be given less? For more than Heaven can you never have. " (pg. 621 Txt.).
What is a Miracle?
With A Course in Miracles Lessons 341 to 350
January 30, 2015
What makes a miracle a miracle? Where do they come from? When they occur, why are we surprised? A Course in Miracles says that miracles are normal and everyday, and we can offer them to each other. Yet when we experience or witness them, they appear rare, the exception and beyond us. They are startling because they seem to contradict what we think we know about life and how life is suppose to work; terminal illnesses are not suppose to heal spontaneously, but for some they do.
Today with Eloisa Ramos, we explore these questions with the guidance of Lessons 341 to 350 of A Course in Miracles. We will also look at what it means to be miracle minded or a miracle worker.
“A miracle is a correction. It does not create, nor really change at all. It merely looks on devastation, and reminds the mind that what it sees is false…it paves the way for the return of timelessness and love’s awakening, for fear must slip away under the gentle remedy it brings.” Pg. 473 txt.
The miracle calls us to return to the wholeness of Love because that is what we are. “Miracles are affirmations of Sonship, which is a state of completion and abundance.” Pg. 13 txt.
The miracle-minded work within time, recognizing the power of the miracle to shorten it; they bring everyone closer “to the ultimate release from time, in which the Son and Father are one.” Pg. 12 txt. Miracles are the means through which the one problem of separation is healed.
What Am I? Our Return Home
from a Detour of Fear with A Course in Miracles
February 13, 2015
What am I? Perhaps I am not clear on what I think I am. Yet, we are always giving answer to this question from the second we are born, and before. What we see and experience in this world is showing us what we think we are.
Do I see and experience pain and illness that keeps me physically and socially limited? Do I experience lack; feeling like I barely survive paycheck to paycheck? Do I experience stress, competition, conflict and attack with brief stays of success, excitement and safety? What am I believing I am, that such a self could suffer and experience so much fear and inconsistency?
It is no coincidence that “What Am I?” is the last theme in the Lessons of A Course in Miracles. It signals the end of our learning journey out of fear. In choosing to believe we are one Self with one Creator and practicing forgiveness our false perceptions are healed showing us a gentle world that offers us mercy and peace.
To know what I am in truth, I have to let go of all that I think I am. All beliefs must be let go as we are moved from having a conceptual self identity to being that which we are, in truth.“Our use of words is almost over now…The truth of what we are is not for words to speak or to describe.” Pg. 479
Freedom From Fear with A Course in Miracles Lesson 361 to 365
February 27, 2015
Why are we in a world of fear? Is our physical experience a choice we made freely? If this is but a temporary stay, where is our real home?
Join Eloisa Ramos as we explore these questions with the final lessons for ACIM which tell us this course is not an end but the beginning of our escape from fear. It leaves us with a Friend, the Voice for God, that knows the way home to love and goes with us so we are never alone.
We come to recognize our freedom from fear in following the Word that God has given us because it is our true will. Free will does not imply separation based on a separate ego/body self that exists only in opposition to that which is. Freedom from fear is the end of all conflict, which is inner peace. In true freedom we chose love and forgiveness.
“His is the only way to find the peace that God has given us. It is His way that everyone must travel in the end, because it is this ending God himself appointed.” Pg. 487 Lessons.
All separation has passed, and our will is the Word of our one Self, and no conflict is possible. What we want is only to follow the Voice for God.
“No more specific lessons are assigned, for there is no more need of them. Henceforth, hear but the Voice for God and for your Self when you retire from the world, to seek reality instead…His is the Word that God has given you. His is the Word you chose to be your own.” Lessons pg 487.
Spiritual Wellness: Using EFT Tapping to Release Resistance to Truth
March 27, 2015
Spiritual truth is the knowledge of our eternal, whole and divine nature. Truth brings our mind to the awareness of what we are: conscious presence, living in the reality of the present moment without input or interference from our conceptual ego thinking.
To experience what we are in truth; conscious “being”, is to know we are not separate ego/bodies and comes through inner peace. This peaceful, non-separated state, where all self identifications have been released, is spiritual wellness. Here the mind remains undisturbed and unaffected by the fearful comings and going, the ups and downs, the perceptual uncertainties of the temporal world. It rests in unlimited love, tranquility, harmony, joy and safety.
Today with Eloisa Ramos, we will be using some of the principle of A Course in Miracles and doing EFT Tapping to help us release some of the resistance to truth. In particular, we will look at safety and our survival reactions to being in the present moment. If we have time, we will also look at the fear of the unknown.
