It’s a matter of trust

July 18, 2017 by gerry

Hi My Fellow Learners,

 

When I refer to you as my fellow learners it is not just a different way of beginning a weekly newsletter. We really are all learning from day to day and it doesn’t matter if you are on the writing end of this message – or the reading end – there is always so very much to be learned.

Often times when you are in the position of being an author, or a teacher, the concept that many people have is that we have reached the point in our lives where we have it all together and we just move through life in a constant state of bliss! Personally, I have never met anyone in this field; myself definitely included, who experiences life in this manner.

We are all human and whenever your life brings you through one set of challenges there is always another one around the corner. The other night, Margaret stated an example of that, when she spoke of our evolution of experiences like being that of a musician. The same could be said of so many disciplines, but in this scenario Margaret used the example of a piano player.

If one were to listen to them playing in concert they would think, “Wow, this person is amazing – they make it look so easy – they are so good at what they do – I don’t know if I could ever be that good!”  But if they were to be there when the pianist was first learning the piece, and they did not know how skilled they were, they would hear them start and stop and make errors in the process – and their reaction might be to say, “I heard so much about this person – but they really don’t seem that good!”

That’s because when we are in the midst of learning something we don’t have it down. We stumble with things that are new – until we figure things out and get our balance – and then suddenly we are able to do that thing almost without thinking. For those of you who drive, can you remember how hard it was when you were learning? We learned how to gauge the right pressure on the pedals – how to properly judge the turns – and how to watch out for and react to other drivers. But as time goes on you begin to do these things without having to really focus on doing them. They become an extension of you – something as natural as walking.

There are so many other situations in which we have done this and proven to ourselves that we are so capable of expansion in so many ways. But what can cause us to struggle with new things that come before us is that we forget to have TRUST!

TRUST – Trust is what you need in order to live your passion, to overcome curve balls, break through patterns that don’t serve you and let go of things that drag you down. You have to enter new paths and therefore you need trust in your core inner self and inner beliefs.

Trust that your soul is simply perfect love and truth and that you can connect to this trust-filled state.

On today’s radio program Margaret discusses the quandary of maintaining trust and ways to cultivate it. I am looking forward to this show as there have been many things in my life of late that have caused me to question some of my deep inner beliefs – and when that happens I know it is time for a reminder of all the miracles that have already happened in my life..!

This week and in the weeks to come, the radio program is moving to 6:30PM Eastern and 3:30PM Pacific for its live airing!  If you could use some help from Margaret in jump starting your internal trust –please don’t miss this program and please feel free to call in! We love your calls and they help so many people!

I wanted to share one last thing with all of you about helping other people and the 50/50 Partnership Program that I instituted a couple of weeks back. I decided to extend this program and please know that in your becoming a part of this it is not just about my helping you with a 50% discount on all of our services. You are helping me as well! You are confirming in me the trust that if we can make services more affordable that more of you will be able to take advantage of them more easily and quickly. And you are also helping me to be able to support my family and to continue to be able to do this kind of work! 

So we are supporting each other and we truly are 50/50 partners in helping each other to keep on trusting that we can change the world – we can expand the love and the care and the healing – and we can make a difference!

So I thank all of you who join this partnership for you are helping me to keep Margaret’s Messages flowing and bringing Soul’s home all over the world. You also reaffirm my trust that we are all in this together – and that together we can do anything!!! The box below has all the details and links. Let’s help each other to be all that we can be!

With great love and gratitude!

When Enough is Enough!

June 27, 2017 by gerry


Hello My Fellow Travelers,

 

This past weekend I had the great pleasure of facilitating the Living Room Tour, at the home of Eric Belair and Courtney Ramm, on the campus of Unity of Dallas. My thanks to both of them because I think the weekend was as powerful for me as it was for the attendees. I got to participate in a Sound and Meditation healing session, that Eric coordinated and performed in, the night before the workshop and beautiful services the day after. The weekend clearly had a theme – that came out in the words Margaret spoke and even in the homily that Sr. Minister James Buchanan shared with the congregation on Sunday.  That theme was about finding missing pieces in us and one of those pieces was our individual ability to grasp the understanding that I AM ENOUGH!

Those are three really powerful words! They are also words that elude almost all of us. The word enough is in itself such an interesting word. The Merriam-Webster dictionary describes it as: occurring in such quantity, quality, or scope as to fully meet demands, needs, or expectations. From the time that we are young children we begin to realize that our life is going to be a constant process of trying to meet the demands, needs and expectations of others. And we develop within our self a need to be able to do these things in order to feel good about us. But since every individual is constantly changing – and their needs are constantly evolving through the needs, wants and desires of others – our ability to keep up with those needs in them is almost impossible. 

So we begin to fail in meeting their expectations of us – or they fail in meeting our expectations and we all begin to develop the belief that we are not enough. We are not thin enough, pretty enough, smart enough, or tall enough. We are not rich enough, powerful enough, fun enough, or sexy enough.  For every human trait, belief or characteristic, there is someone feeling that they do not have enough of that! And when we feel this way then we are feeling inherently less than others. The most amazing part of this equation, however, is that this is something that EVERYONE on this planet feels to some degree.  There is always some quality that we wish that we had – and even when others might express to us their appreciation of how much we are – we may still not be able to take that in because we are focused on all that we are not!

So how do we lift our self out of the trap of feeling that we are NOT ENOUGH?  Margaret suggests that it begins by looking outside of your-self and seeing the “enough-ness” of others. If we begin with the basic understanding that everyone feels like they are not enough, then we can understand the actions that other’s take. We can appreciate their insecurities – we can feel compassionate for their weaknesses – we can better understand their prejudices and we can love them not despite these things but because we come to realize that they are just like us – and though our thoughts and struggles may be different, we are all involved in the same struggle to be “enough!” And if they then are enough – and we are all the same – then we have to be enough too!

From your soul’s perspective, you are not only enough, but in the words that Rev. James said this past weekend, “you are ‘off the charts’ enough and you just keep getting better!” Your soul does not judge you for your height, or your singing voice, or your ability to feel confident in groups – it loves you for being just who you are – this amazing being who had the courage to incarnate into a situation where it does not realize that it already is enough and that all of these experiences are about expanding your soul energy and becoming more than enough!

That is why we are here, not to help ourselves to feel as though maybe if I do this, or buy this, or take this, then I might feel like enough. But to realize that we start out as enough – and that every experience of self love and love for others; every experience of compassion and kindness; every experience of expanding limited beliefs; all lead you to moving beyond enough, the feeling of completion and wholeness – to limitless the state of who you really are! 

This week we celebrate our enough-ness and the fact that we are already “off the charts” in our being enough and that every day we are becoming even more!

Please make sure to tune into this week’s radio program as  Margaret will expand on this even more and if you would like to learn more about how we lose pieces of ourselves and sometimes get stuck in the feeling of being less than, or powerless, please check out the special video series that I recently made about the “Care and Maintenance of your Soul.”  Those who sign up for the series are eligible for a $100 discount on Soul Reclamation – just to say thank you for taking the time to learn more about your brain and your soul and helping us to help you, and others, to become more than you might have ever imagined!

 

You are “Off the Charts” Wonderful!

Love Gerry

Values Are Like Fingerprints

May 30, 2017 by gerry

 

My Dear and Wonderful Friends,

 

This coming Wednesday night we are doing a special FREE webinar about creating a Soul Based Business and life – and one of the things that I wanted to share with everyone this week is my personal story about how a part of that program – the concept of value – has touched my life –especially recently! Margaret and I talk all about this concept in the first class of the program, going into how to determine what are the things that you truly value; what do other’s value in you; do you see yourself as being value-able; and how would you like to be remembered – what values will people remember about you.  But the most important component is teaching you how to best value yourself – and in so doing – how to not only be of service in your value of others – but how to value your own life and happiness with equal importance!  This is often a difficult concept for us to grasp as we are so used to our role as a “human-doing” – trying to do whatever we can to be of service and love to others – that we forget how to be a “human-being” – that place where we honor ourselves for who we are and not just what we do!

For most of us this isn’t something we set out to do. It is something that kind of grows around us – like a snowball rolling down a mountain. That’s what happened to me as I began to expand my work with Margaret, after the Hay House books and the radio program began reaching people throughout the world. Margaret and I wanted to be able to touch as many individual lives as possible. So, we began to offer substantially discounted rates on services that would allow us to do so. At the same time, I was moving from working full-time as a Newspaper Publisher to making this my full time vocation. So my being of service in working with Margaret not only became my passion – it became the sole support for my family – and I needed to grow it quickly! I began to notice a couple of things that happened as a result of the reduced rates. We became very busy with booking half hour readings, at 50% off and even sometimes 66% off the original rate, and Margaret always went over the half hour! Margaret often says of herself that she loves to talk! Almost every reading ran between 35 to 45 minutes. It became clear that in order to support my family, and keep the discounted rates, I would have to do two to three times the number of readings – and would need to increase my available time to do so. 

Let me be clear that I was, and still am, so very grateful for those readings and all the wonderful people who schedule them! But the increased schedule gave me little time for being with my family – let alone creating new books or programs – or follow up with clients. Many of you even kindly commented on how we were doing all this, since we were starting most days at 6am and ending at 11pm. And the more I listened to Margaret, speaking to others in readings, about creating balance in their lives – the more I realized that I needed to look more closely at how to better define my soul based life – and to avoid the burnout that has happened to me in the past when I put in too many hours and didn’t do things to care for myself. I am sure that so many, if not most of you, can relate to that burnout as well!

When I looked at how we were being of value to others, I could see that some valued the discounts because it gave them the affordability do Soul Reclamation or to ask Margaret their most burning questions. Other’s loved the extra time that Margaret would spend with them. My challenge then was how to find a way where I could still keep offering outstanding value and additional time to all of you – while creating more available time so that Margaret and I could create even more things to help expand her messages and “walk the talk” of all that we were teaching others – while also leaving me some more time for family and self! Stephen Covey, who’s work I so respect, would call this creating the “win, win, win” scenario – in which all parties would be able to receive value!

I sought out advice both from Margaret and colleagues that I greatly respect, and I think we came up with a way to do this! We found a way to keep the most affordable reading rate possible (a $50 reading), increase the amount of time for regular readings (from 30 to 45 minutes) – while even reducing the cost – and we established Easy Payment Plans for services like Soul Reclamation and Private Coaching (available now in three monthly payments)! And to make this transition easier for you, we offered substantially discounted rates for the full month of May (which ends tomorrow) as part of our Month of Expansion. We wanted to allow you the ability to expand your access to our services, through some final discounted specials, while we were designing a method to create permanent value!

While making these changes was a little scary – as I mentioned in last week’s newsletter – it was crucial to be able to find a way to offer stable ongoing services, that could offer as much value as we possibly could to all of you – while not always having to do pricing specials. The idea of something special is that it should be new and different and not part of the consistent menu of services. Most times, when you go to a restaurant and the server tells you about the specials – they aren’t regular menu items that are just lower in price! They are a creative new dishes that expand upon the regular menu and that is what we need the time to prepare for all of you. We want to create new helpful content to give you tools to make your life more joy filled! We want to offer more direct social media connection with all of you – with channeled Messages from Margaret that are both timely and inspiring! We would like to offer more Facebook LIVE events and Living Room Tour Events! And most of all we want to help to lead by example and to offer you ways to see that you can create “win,win,win” situations in your lives and that creating value in all you do – especially in how you view yourself is truly possible! I hope that all of you will love this new direction and will support us in our desire to expand how we can support you! You will find all of the details posted on the website later this week under its own slide show header. 

Why I am sharing all this with you, is that I know that this situation is not something that I alone have grappled with. So many of you struggle with how to best offer your services – especially when they are “spiritual” in nature! Even those of you with more traditional businesses, or those of you who work for others, seek to find ways where your customers or employers could better understand your value. I think that part of that begins with looking first at what your clients, or your employer currently needs and values the most in you and your services and then expanding from there.  Look first at their desires and then offer services that can answer those desires– while respecting your desires as well!

It might seem odd to be closing this message with words from none other than the “King of Rock and Roll,” Elvis Presley, but I saw a quote, credited to him, saying, “Values are like fingerprints. Nobody’s are the same, but you leave them all over everything you do.”  I hope that in all we do that we have left fingerprints that assist you to value who you are – and who you are evolving into…a wonderful, incredible, limitless soul who is valued not just by what you perform as a “human-doing” but in whom you are as a “human-being!”    

With great love and value for all you are,

Gerry
