A Course in Miracles with Anasuya

Featured

        Do you want peace, and struggle with trusting yourself?    

       You are an intelligent and sincere seeker of Truth. You may have begun more than once to study A Course in Miracles and for varying reasons you quit. Or, the Course sits majestically on your bookshelf, next to your bed or on your favorite reading table yet to be opened. Possibly wanting to “get it right”; you either don’t start or never finish.  You want to begin. It calls to you. You walk right by it, one more time, and hear yourself say, “Maybe later.”

       You begin reading and find yourself confused at times, even daunted by its iambic pentameter and Shakespearean style. While you may have sat in on more than one study group or followed different teachers, you want greater clarity.   Or, maybe you have been studying on your own and are wanting the company of others who share your longing for Truth and struggle with how to trust themselves and apply the teachings in their lives.

           You can learn to trust yourself and experience the miracles of peace in your daily life.  

             Honest learning begins with self acceptance.  You begin where you are.  By releasing the assumption that there is a right way to study, you can relax.  When you let yourself become quiet, the Still Small Voice reveals its healing Presence.          

           Only Love is real.  You are that Love. The Course is simple in its approach. All you need is a little willingness. Your longing to know the Truth of who you are is the guiding force that returns you Home to your true Self. As the Course reminds, you are not on a journey. You are in an awakening to this truth.          

            “Hi! My name is Anasuya Floan. I understand and deeply appreciate the path of learning Trust. Since 1978, I have helped hundreds of people attain peace of mind and heart by providing a safe container for deep listening and clear reflection.  If you want to experience the teachings of the Course reveal their power in the midst of daily life, if you want to learn how to trust your Heart to enlighten every step of your awakening, I am here to support you.”

        I wholeheartedly welcome you to your study and participation in A Course in Miracles.”

Let it Die ~ A Gift of Grief

Let it Die – A Gift of Grief

Sometimes an unexpected message of change becomes a gift of grief that breaks us open and sets us free.

I recently experienced what I perceived as a betrayal. It wasn’t the message itself; that I accepted. In fact, I was coming to the same decision. I felt betrayed by the way the message was delivered.

When I left the ten-minute meeting in which I had been told in a few sentences that I was no longer needed, I heard two very distinct and tender whispers calling from beneath the searing pain in my Heart: “Let it die.  Die into Me.”

There are certain parts of ourselves that only grief can introduce us to.

        Those loving commands became the mantras that guided me through the following weeks of grief. I was suddenly and unexpectedly saying goodbye. And to way more than the position of service I had held so dear, I was saying goodbye to a part of myself that only grief could introduce me to.

    Through the stream of midnight tears, I shed the skin of attachments that I had accumulated without realizing it. I laid awake, listening. “Let it die” on the inhale, “Die into Me” on the exhale. Slowly, gently, I offered my trust to the Still Small Voice. Then with each breath, I gave myself over to Its gentle influence and fell deeper into the pain.  Is Love here too?

     “Let it die.” The welcome comfort of my tears brought the humility of acceptance that would reveal the errors of who I thought I was.  I am not what people think of me.  Nor, am I what I have accomplished or how well I have performed.  And, I am not my perception of how I think they should treat me because of what I believe or hope they think of me.

What are the gifts of abundance that the Divine is wanting to give me now?

“Die into Me.” As I let go into the Light of my heart, I could now see the root cause of my mistake in how I perceived myself. The lie that I am not loved dissolved in the Grace-giving waters of Forgiveness and left me naked, free to be in the truth.  I am loved.

     From within a delicate and empty Quietude, a question emerged, “What are the gifts of abundance that the Divine is wanting to give me now?” As I drank from this unexpected and welcome pool of hope and renewal, a warm glow of light began to emanate beginning in my belly, “Time.” Blissfully rising up into my heart, “Freedom.”  And peacefully settling just below my throat, “Relief.”

     I have more time to focus on the things that my heart is longing to do, like write the story of my spiritual journey that has been my guiding Light through life.  A new freedom is singing in my heart.  No more need to please, perform and answer to someone else’s demands.  An abundance of relief offers a respite of peace. Relief from responsibilities that are no longer mine, I am free to rest my focus in the safety of Love’s Will for me.

Give yourself over completely to Love’s Influence

“Let it die.  Die into Me.”  Trust the Still Small Voice within.  Give yourself over completely to Its influence.  It speaks as the Divine Will, leading the mind safely home to the Heart. Joy, freedom, peace and abundance are Its gifts. Take all you need. They are yours for the taking.

From Clear to Fear and Back Again

From Clear to Fear and Back Again

You know how it is. You have clarity. You’re inspired. Your heart moves you. You know it’s the truth. You’re at peace and like the song says, “On a clear day you can see Forever”. A quiet joy fills you and you begin to see the first action steps that will bring your heart’s desire to life. You may even take a step or two. You can’t help but notice that you’re, well … dare you admit it? … Happy?!

What others think is none of your business

You know how it is. And then.. and then a shrinking darkness pulls you back and whispers, “but what about (fill in the blank with a who or what)?” “You can’t do that!” “No one wants to hear you.” “What about the kids? the laundry? what about all of your responsibilities?” “They’ll think you’re a loser. They’ll think you’re not responsible. They’ll think …” Yes, they will think.

You know how it is. You’ve successfully negotiated with fear’s reasoning and logically worked your way out of the terror that squashed your truth. You fall numb to its deafening effect on the Still Small Voice within.

You know how it is. You get grumpy, irritable. Everything feels off and no one can do anything right around you or for you. You toss it off to a “bad day” or Mercury retrograde. You tell yourself, “I’ll feel better when it stops raining.”

Grace moves by Its own Will 

You know how it is.  You feel Something deep within calling you to be still. You resist the Invitation until … in some quiet corner of your day, an unexpected breeze of tender Grace moves by Its own Will and wins your attention.  By some benevolent mystery, you accept yourself just as you are: afraid, feeling alone and needing help.
With a little willingness, you respond to the Call within. It offers release and as the tears flow, you let go.  A miracle flashes forth, a spontaneous shift in your perception.  You are humbled as you realize that it arrives at the threshold of your awareness by nothing you do.  The grace of forgiveness welcomes you home to Love’s embrace.
You breathe in the atmosphere of Clarity and you know the next right step, the clear and loving thing to say, the decision that is authentic and true to YOU, the REAL you. You know you can trust Love’s command and you take another step.
You know how it is. Being human dancing with the Divine. From Clear to fear and back again. Trust the dance. Love is the Friend Who dances you.
