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...

i stole something from me,
hid something from me

i hid my Joy
my truth
my true Self
my freedom to be me with wild abandon
to laugh at what is funny
to not take seriously what i think

i tried to steal my ability to laugh

i inhibited my Self
by fear of disapproval
and abandonment

i turned against my own inner Joy

i left her

i did not support her,
value her

i pretended not to have her,
that she did not exist

i've been pretending that my wings are clipped

i've been pretending
to fit in
to be "normal"
to have "friends"

how funny and deathly ill is this at the same time
what kind of "friends" could these possibly be,
but fellow death walkers,
also in denial of true Joy

today we would be abnormal,
by this world's standards

we would flaunt our Joy
hold it high above our head--
we would value it high above our thinking

we would love it
and give it all away
more and more and more and more and more...
we would feel the flow of Joy all day long....

we are responsible....
and we would not live under false pretenses anymore

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
