Who Am I This Time? Self Identity and EFT Tapping
with A Course in Miracles
April 11, 2014, 12 noon PST
Are we split into many selves or are we one Self? If we are many is it even possible to answer, “Who am I”, since the self is changing or becoming a new self in time? A Course in Miracles Lesson 95 says: “I am one Self, united with my Creator".
"Your perfect unity makes change in you impossible. You do not accept this...only because you believe that you have changed yourself already.”
Join Eloisa, EFT Master, in undoing these thoughts:
"You think you are the home of evil, darkness and sin. You think if anyone could see the truth about you he would be repelled..." Lesson 93.
We will tap on: the fear of looking within; arising from these beliefs, to go past our thinking to connect to the truth, that we are as God created us, one Self!
Truth or Fiction: The Truth Seeker
with A Course in Miracles Lessons 103-116
April 25, 2014 12 noon PST
Can the truth be sad, ugly, cruel or hurt us? For some of us, truth is what we least want to hear. It is the bearer of “bad” news. We fear it because it tells us that reality is not as we wish it to be
We want reality to conform to our desires, expectations and dreams that we so tirelessly work to accomplish. We want to believe that we are on our own and that our ego thinking has the power to change truth/reality because we have judged it lacking.
Our wishes speak loudly to us and the truth seeker must question their illusory superiority to recognize they are but fiction.
Today we join Eloisa Ramos, EFT Master, as we attempt to distinguish between the Voice of truth and the ego’s voice and undo the fear of truth.
“If you will lay aside the ego’s voice, however, loudly it may seem to call; If you will not accept its petty gifts that give you nothing that you really want; If you will listen with an open mind, that has not told you what salvation is; then you will hear the mighty Voice of truth, quiet in power, strong in stillness and completely certain in Its messages…Hear and be silent…He comes with miracles a thousand times as happy and as wonderful as those you ever dreamed or wished for in your dreams.” Lesson 106 of ACIM.
Heal the World: The Healing of Our Mind
with EFT Tapping & A Course in Miracles
May 9, 2014 12 noon PST
Can we have love if we hold on to fear? Can we have peace if we hold on to conflict and hate? Can we have equality when we hold on to differences and comparisons? These questions demonstrate the impossibility of holding on to two irreconcilable worlds or mindsets.
If I’m in a state of fear, it blocks my awareness of love; if I’m taken over by conflict and hate, I lose sight of peace; and if I compare and see only differences how can I see our inherent equality? The healing of our mind/heart is necessary in order to heal the world.
A Course in Miracles says, “No one can see a world his mind has not accorded value. And no one can fail to look upon what he believes he wants.”
Join me, Eloisa Ramos, as we take guidance from Lessons 117-130 and explore why “Forgiveness offers us everything we want” attempting to change our mind and chose again what we want to see. We will also do surrogate EFT tapping for the forgiveness of our fears and for regret.
“The unforgiving mind is full of fear, and offers love no room to be itself; no place where it can spread its wings in peace and soar above the turmoil of the world…Today it will be given you to feel the peace forgiveness offers and the joy the lifting of the veil holds out to you. Before the light you will receive today the world will fade until it disappears, and you will see another world arise you have no words to picture.” Lessons 121, 122, ACIM.
Gary Craig: (Spiritual) Optimal EFT Tapping
and A Course in Miracles
May 23, 2014 12 noon PST
Eloisa Ramos welcomes Gary Craig, who founded EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) making the "tapping" with your fingertips on acupuncture meridians to release blocked energy/emotions available as online training in 1995.
Gary is also an avid A Course in Miracles student since 1986. He shares his story of how he came to be a student and his “stunning” and “exquisite” experience of being in the presence of the Creator in 1988.
Gary explains, “The real value of EFT, the longer term piece of it, is NOT to give us what the Course sometimes calls, ‘a better version of the dream’. The real goal, in my view, was to clear away, to do what comes up at the very beginning of ACIM; we want to remove the blocks to the awareness of Love’s presence.”
Gary is now developing Optimal EFT to remove those blocks to the awareness of Love’s presence in an optimal manner. “Optimal aims at recognizing this is a dream, and there is nothing to forgive. Everybody is either exhibiting love or calling for love, a very important topic in A Course in Miracles”.
Gary explains to us how ACIM sees forgiveness from a different reference point than the everyday use of it.
Gary’s ultimate longing is to use Optimal EFT as a tool to take him back to this state of unbounded Love which he experienced briefly in time. He recognizes this is his path and is not preaching to convert others to his way.

Survival Stress and Health with A Course in Miracles
June 6, 2014 12 noon PST
Can something aimed to save our life really save it when it also imposes a threat to it? The (stress) survival mode response embodies this contradiction. Modern medicine has now made it clear that there are detrimental effects of stress on health. Must we now survive the threat posed by our very own instinct of survival? Clearly this approach cannot save us as it only imposes more threat.
Today, with Eloisa Ramos and the guidance of Lessons 131-158 of A Course in Miracles, we attempt to move beyond survival and attack, exploring the cause of stress and why survival as a plan to defend ourselves from danger and death only reinforces the fearful belief that we are weak and vulnerable bodies/egos; thereby increasing the stress associated with the fear that only the strongest or fittest will survive.
Lesson 135 says, “Enslavement of the body to the plans the unhealed mind sets up to save itself must make the body sick. It is not free to be the means of helping in a plan which far exceeds it own protection, and which needs its service for a little while. In this capacity is health assured.”
We look at Lesson 136 which says, “Sickness is a defense against the truth” and why “No one can heal unless he understands what purpose sickness seems to serve. Being causeless and without a meaningful intent of any kind, it cannot be at all. When this is seen, healing is automatic.”
What is Death? What is Fear?
With A Course in Miracles Lessons 159 to 172
June 20, 2014, 12 noon PST
Death and fear are part of the world we see. But what is death? What is fear? A Course in Miracles teaches that everything we see in the world is a reflection of what we value, think and want to see. The world we perceive is a mirror showing us what we think we are.
The ego as mind believes it is a body separated from it's source of life with a separate will, and so miscreates a world of fear and death to reflect this error. Yet ACIM says, “What is alien to the mind does not exist, because it has no source. For mind creates all things that are, and cannot give them attributes it lacks, nor change its own eternal, mindful state. It cannot make the physical. What seems to die is but the sign of mind asleep.” Lesson 167.
Today with your host, Eloisa Ramos, we explore our dream of death, through the eyes of our fearful, ego thought system, the error as a misperception of a separate body self with the intention of seeing differently past the error.
Lesson 167 says, “You think that death is of the body. Yet it is but an idea, irrelevant to what is seen as physical. A thought is in the mind. It can then be applied as mind directs it. But its origin is where it must be changed, if change occurs. Ideas leave not their source… (this) truth establishes you as one with God.”
We also look to the grace of God as we, “Request Him now to give the means by which this world will disappear, and vision first will come, with knowledge but an instant later. For in grace you see a light that covers all the world in love and watch fear disappear from every face as hearts rise up and claim the light as theirs.” Lesson 168.
