The Healing Power of Writing

Hi! Welcome to the Joy of Miracles.

To write is to uncover, to unhide, to bring to light, and express what is within. To share is the end of all private thoughts, all shame, all guilt, all pain and separation. Here is all Joy found at last! Writing helps us to repeat, focus, choose, and remember ideas. The purpose of this writing is healing for all of us.

This blog is inspired by "A Course in Miracles"and The Work of Byron Katie. You are invited to share your comments by clicking on the word "comment" at the end of each post. If you scroll way down there's a little info about me and also an archive of past writing you can view by clicking on the title. Thanks so much for visiting...

be not afraid of fear

while you are here

it is as natural 
as the rain
and snow

sometimes it seems like we are
caught in a surprise rainstorm

in the middle of a bright blue sunny sky
it suddenly changes

the fog starts to roll in while our attention 
is  somewhere else for a moment

the sky turns a dark gray
and clouds appear pregnant and full,
ready to burst

fear not

the temperature  can drop just as suddenly
where a minute ago our heart was warm and open

now there is some kind of freeze
each crystal that forms starts to block the flow
until perhaps only a trickle remains
hidden under the ice

fear not

this will happen

fear not the dark stormy nights
fear not the subzero temperatures
fear not the illusion that no flowers exist
and that warm summer days are gone forever

we do not fear this 

nor do we run
and hide out under the covers

like a child
we watch thru the window
the approaching storm
we watch the patterns trickle on the glass

we feel the thunder shake the ground we stand on
we might even jump at the loud cracking sound

but we always know
it is just a storm
just a passing storm

there is never for a moment
a fear that this will not end
and that the Sun will not return

we might even grab our Mother's leg
or hide under the bed for a while

but like a child we will
run again out into the yard
we will splash in the puddles
squish our toes in the mud
look at the earthworms laying on the sidewalk
see how green everything looks after the rain

and learn that everything is now more beautiful 
than it ever seemed before

the rain washes us clean
the rain is a sign there is healing going on
we let the clouds pour out/expose our guilt
so the sun can shine once more

we remember 

there is nothing to fear

and we give thanks for this light on the storm,

About Me

My photo
I have been a student of A Course in Miracles since 1986. It has helped me tremendously to be a happier person by helping me change my perception of everything. I have found writing to be very helpful in the process of practicing, experiencing, and living the ideas in the Course. In 2006 I started sharing inspiration from the Course with a friend. Now it is a joy to share it with everyone. In 2009, The Work of Byron Katie found me at a woman's group. The Work is a way to identify and question your stressfuI beliefs. I dove right in and in April 2013 became a Certified Facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie. I work with people privately and offer online classes. Please visit for more information. I also still occasionally lead the 11am Sunday Gathering at the Rocky Mountain Miracles Center in Denver. For more information
