Journeys of the Spirit® Newsletter August 15th, 2012
WHAT’S NEW? Did I totally confuse you? Heck, sometimes I confuse myself!
This past Saturday I sent out an email inviting all of you to an open bridgeline call with me. The purpose was to answer any questions YOU might have about forgiveness in general – or about the new How To Forgive e-Course I just launched.
Many of you did not realize it was me because the email did not come with the usual header – oops! So sorry if I confused you (forgive me!). But I can tell you I had a lovely time chatting with some really awesome people! 🙂
I’m going to be answering questions again this weekend – would you like to join me? If so come on the line between 12:00-2:00pm Eastern time or from 9:00am-11:00am Pacific time. The number is: 218-862-1300, Use conference code: 538349. I look forward to seeing you there!

What if you could completely forgive yourself and others?
What if you could gain all of the insight, tools, and support needed to completely release the past?
Forgiveness is one of the most misunderstood concepts in our spiritual traditions. It’s not a high-in-sky idea, it’s not really difficult, and it most certainly does not mean that just because you are forgiving you are making the other person right. NO! NO! NO! Forgiveness is not condoning under any circumstances! Forgiveness does not make hurtful actions correct.
But what is truth is that our lack of forgiveness is the biggest obstacle we have in our lives and it affects us energetically on all fronts. I don’t care how large or small the incident is.
- If you are not going as far as you would like in your business, I bet something needs to be forgiven.
- If you keep picking crappy partners in your life, I bet someone needs to be forgiven.
- Parents pissing you off? For sure someone needs to be forgiven!
- If someone abused you in the past and it makes you sick to your stomach to see them or think about them, absolutely forgiveness is needed!
If you’re ready to make a difference in your life, to feel good and to be free. If you’re ready to move past the blocks that are sabotaging your success in your relationships, business, love, heath, and abundance – don’t wait – join me NOW!
Just one drop of LOVE can change everything…
When I look at my life these days I am amazed and ever soooooooo grateful. Today I can honestly say that I LOVE my life! However, it was not always so……
There was a time in my life when not only did I NOT love my life, but I did not love myself. And I didn’t even KNOW it. I was unconscious. I was asleep.
But this story has a happy ending! What changed? Well – I woke up. Yes, it was painful. And yes, it was powerfully revealing and healing! I started to see the relationships that didn’t work and had no healthy boundaries. I felt lonely, angry and resentful. I couldn’t quite figure out why people were the way they were to me. I hated my body and started to see how that was connected to the physical problems I was having.
I saw how I always had money problems, and that there was never enough. It became clear that I didn’t know what I wanted to do in my life – so I cleaned houses, was a waitress, and hopped from job to job just to barely pay the bills. I could see my issues and knew there had to be more to life, but I didn’t know how to get to the more.
Then I was invited to a Center for Spiritual Living and was exposed to the Science of Mind Philosophy. From that point forward everything in my life started to change. Every single THING! Slowly but surely, I began to see that my life was a reflection of my thoughts and feelings. I finally got that my beliefs created my experiences.
The most important aspect of that revelation was that I began to approach my life with love and compassion. As long as I approached life with judgment and criticism I kept creating more problems, drama and sad stories. Loving myself and having compassion for my life AS IT WAS – began to polish the mirror of my heart and mind and welcomed the good into my life.
Flash forward to today. If I could share any wisdom with you – it would this: Suspend your thoughts when you look at yourself and your life and just SEE WHAT IS. Truly see without judgment! In that beautiful place of seeing, literally CHOOSE what it is that you want to experience. Then BELIEVE IT IS POSSIBLE and hold that as your VISION & INTENTION.
Finding that a little tough to do? Then ask yourself this question: If I believed anything in life was totally possible, what would I be thinking/feeling/doing? Okay – now take those actions without thinking about them, judging them or worrying about them! Support your actions with your SPIRITUAL PRACTICE! Much and often, until you feel that sweet exquisite shift inside of you.
There is a space within us where we can make a conscious, clear choice to allow a powerful drop of love and compassion to fully infuse us and bring us new guidance at any moment. Each of us are deeply worthy of living a fabulous life. We are all deeply worthy of LOVING OUR LIVES AND OURSELVES with full acceptance, compassion, gratitude and appreciation. So let’s get to it! There is only THIS moment of glorious now – so let’s celebrate loving ourselves, waking up, and embracing our consciousness fully!
Love & Blessings, Frankie Timmers
Frankie has been a spiritual director for the Centers for Spiritual Living for almost 25 years now – the last 19 years in beautiful, historic Morristown, New Jersey. For the last 10 years she has had a great passion for Sufism as well and practices the Sufi Meditation of the Heart. She is also part of a group that does dreamwork and practices the zikr (mantra). The path of Science of Mind® deeply opened her mind, and the Sufi path deeply opened her heart – both completely transforming her life.
**Join Frankie and Sheri for a very special journey to the Mayan Heartland November 10-17th to embrace the new consciousness of 2012 and delve into the source of our sacred center. Uxmal was a university of sacred spirituality and cosmic harmony whose information is stored in the stones ready for us to access and embody. Through powerful ceremonies and spiritual practices we will connect with universal wisdom and truth residing within – beautifully reflected in the design and purpose of these ruins. Don’t miss it!
