Spiritual intuition guides financial choices

Spiritual intuition can guide our financial choices whether it’s buying a gift, gas, groceries or a house. The same Principle applies in all transactions big or small.

When I go shopping I like to listen to the “still, small voice” of inspiration which guides me. God never guides us to waste, be stingy or be hasty. There is only perfection and generosity in infinite Principle.

Here’s one small example: I was buying a couple of books for my son for an upcoming road trip. I really wanted to buy the board book “Corduroy” because we both love reading it from the library. But my spiritual intuition told me not to. I trusted that guidance even though I didn’t understand why I shouldn’t buy it.

Well we went to visit my dad’s house on this road trip and he asked me to look through some old boxes of mine. In one of the boxes I found my old copy of the book “Corduroy” from my childhood. We were both surprised and happy, and we got to enjoy reading the book for the remainder of the trip. I was grateful that I was guided not to purchase this book a few weeks prior.

I’ve had the same Principle guide me when buying houses, cars, changing jobs and moving across country. It doesn’t matter what the value is — $1 or $100,000 — the same wisdom and guidance is always there.

As we practice being willing to listen and obey this divine intuition, we can respond more quickly and consistently to these divine thoughts. Not to mention that it’s fun getting to listen to God and feel our connection to the divine Principle everyday.

Happy holidays!

Divine love can dissolve past hurt

Family gatherings can be difficult times for many. How do you feel a sense of God’s presence and love during the holidays? God is the Source of each one’s individuality, so we can all know — spiritually discern — that we are each loved equally despite what may have gone on before.family-591579_960_720

Pure humanity, friendship, home, the interchange of love, bring to earth a foretaste of heaven.1

Our identity, feeling worthy and loved doesn’t actually come from other people, although sometimes friends and family can beautifully reflect how worthy, lovely and lovable we all are. These expressions of joy and appreciation are natural and normal and are signs of God, divine Love’s, kingdom on earth.

Your kingdom come.
    Your will be done,
        on earth as it is in heaven.2

Relationships are a good opportunity to dissolve what Mary Baker Eddy calls the “adamant of error”: self-will, self-justification and self-love3 ; the old adage “my way or the highway” mentality; self-righteousness, which wreaks havoc on all of us; then of course there’s just plain old judgement.

Christ Jesus was the perfect example of living and expressing spiritual love.

After washing their feet, he put on his robe again and sat down and asked, “Do you understand what I was doing? You call me ‘Teacher’ wash-717812_960_720and ‘Lord,’ and you are right, because that’s what I am. And since I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash each other’s feet. I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you…Now that you know these things, God will bless you for doing them.4

God will bless you for doing them! God will bless you for putting off old resentments. God will bless you for being humble enough to be made new — in the likeness of God!

You deserve to express divine Love — not hold on to the past or limited views of others (that God is not knowing about them). Self-hatred is what makes us feel we are not worthy or loved enough to let go of hatred towards others! We are worth it! Let it go.

Spiritual living and blessedness are the only evidences, by which we can recognize true existence and feel the unspeakable peace which comes from an all-absorbing spiritual love. 5

Feel that unspeakable peace. It is God’s spiritual love wrapping you up and enabling you to move past hurt, condemnation, resentment. You are holy! You are free. You can feel that way by seeing others that way.

A conversation with God

God is always speaking to us. Not that God is a chatterbox. But God’s angel messages and intuitions are ALWAYS guiding, guarding and loving us. We each have a unique relationship with a precious Creator.

We are either turning away from this utterance, or we are listening to it and going up higher.

This conversation with God — this prayer that never ceases — blesses us and lifts us up.

God already knows everything that we need and is happily providing it. So we don’t need to worry about if He will or will not do that. But prayer does change us — it opens us up to hearing His messages of love, patience and healing; prayer even heals the body through thought — a spiritual consciousness which is then manifest on the body as perfection, health and wholeness.

Prayer also guides and protects; we have all heard of countless instances of God’s protecting love guiding humans when and when not to do or say something.

What about the perpetrators of violence? Terrorists? Yes, all are capable of hearing the “still, small voice” of Life, Truth and Love guiding and protecting everyone with a pure sense of love, a courage to do what is good, and a humble and meek spirit that is willing to listen and find peaceful solutions for all humanity.

God’s love is bigger than fear. God’s love is more present and more attractive than messages of hate, lack, bitterness, resentment and violence.

Each of us are the spiritual and pure children of God. These healthy, loving messages of God are pouring on us all the time! We have to tune out the “static” and tune in to God. Then we will see everyone as rightly governed by God — our natural, normal state of being.

Man is properly self-governed only when he is guided rightly and governed by his Maker, divine Truth and Love.

So let’s all tune in to the messages of Love that come from God and that lead us to a feeling of peace and reveal solutions.
