Cleaning Up the Mess

Yes, we came home late Thursday and have been busy with grandchildren until last night.
Now back at home with my computer each morning.
One of my favorite places to be is with you and Spirit within right here every morning.
The footnote on the bottom may be helpful to understand how this all came to be for me.

What’s up with You?
Seems like this is a great cleanup year.
Already the leftovers, the stuff swept under the rug, is appearing right in our faces to be cleared.
Looks like when we ask to be healed, purified, sanitized and made whole, everything shows up.

This seems to be a good year and a good time to clean up our act, inside and out.
Wherever there is fear, may it clear quickly and easily with a scoop of forgiveness and a pinch of love.
Wherever there is hurt, may it be soothed with kindness and lots of gratitude.
Wherever there is conflict and misunderstanding, may we seek deeper truth and respond with peace.
Wherever there is unfulfilled expectations, may we seek to let go and trust all in the perfect time.

You see we cause our own misery in our non-acceptance and conditional agreements.
We hide our own errors in our mistaken beliefs that others are to fulfill our demands.
When we fail to listen to our own purpose and seek to “get” rather than “give”, we feel hurt.
Life is for giving….and we are the gift.

When I let others tell me who I am and how I am to be, I play the victim, the vulnerable, the needy one.
When I allow outside authorities to teach me to live in their reality and their truth, I will be misled.
When I seek guidance from my past history, from those with other life paths than mine, I get confused.
When I learn to seek for my own inner peace and my own form of happiness, I find fulfillment for me.

I am noticing that when I follow the path of light and joy and ease, I am on my high way.
When I follow the path of darkness, difficulty and seriousness, I am in trouble.
Where there is fear for me, I am allowing myself to be misled.
Where there is trust and freedom and peace for me, I am living my purpose and feel at home.

Sometimes when we clean up messes, we get dirty.
Sometimes when we are clearing past history, we get caught up in memorie.
Sometimes when we are releasing ourselves from attachment, we may be lost or afraid.
Sometimes we may want to go back to being comfortable with what was, but it won’t work anymore.

This is the time to be assured we are doing our own right work.
This is time to love ourselves well by sticking with our optimum plan of Self care.
This is the time to be aware of when we go unconscious or lose ourselves in others ideas for us.
This is the time to heal with the help and guidance within, always honoring our own highest Good.

Life is letting go of everything that is not wholly, good, beautiful and loving.
Life is making the choice to listen to our own inner voice.
Life is freeing ourselves from dependencies on other’s approval.
Life is saying YES to whatever is for the Highest and Best.

I am trusting the Good in me and you to undo whatever is not really True and lasting,
I am loving you,  

Betty Lue

Origin of Inner Listening
In 1976 it was suggested I sit and do nothing for just five minutes daily by a spiritual mentor/teacher.  I chose 5AM in the morning and immediately saw/felt and heard a vision of a Home of Infinite Love available to all people.  Over the years,  I have co-created many such Centers and Homes with the guidance of Spirit within. The next morning I brought a pad of paper and a pen to sit, and as I was simply breathing, I knew words were coming into my mind and I wrote them down.  When I later read them, I saw they had great spiritual meaning.  As an innocent, trusting and ‘True Believer’, I then quieted myself every morning and began to follow what I heard within.  My life became fun, safe, easy and miraculous in so many ways.  I learned, forgave and grew spiritually daily from every relationships.  This is was the origin of what I call “inner listening” and have taught to hundreds of willing learners over the last 30 years.

The Origin of emailed Loving Reminders

In the winter of 1998, having just moved back to the Bay Area in California, I asked Spirit within what was my purpose and calling.  I was invited to sit at the computer and write down my daily inner listening and send it to those who requested it of me.  Since Dec, 1998 I have  sat at my keyboard, everyday to write exactly what Spirit within guides.  I do not edit, correct spelling and embellish what I hear.  I simply send what is given to me to share with the now thousands around the world.
This is my inner listening given to all who choose to receive them.  Often it gives people what they need, practical spiritual and inspiring reminders, so they need not spend money on  hours of therapy or endless seeking for spiritual answers.  They seem to awaken and remind individuals who are willing and ready to change their lives for the Good of All.  I also have put many of the reminders into three little books, Loving Reminders, Peaceful Reminders and Relationship Reminders.  There are three other books waiting to be published, Healing and Healthy Reminders and Family Reminders.  It is my joy to contribute to the healing and awakening of my spiritual family, all humanity.

May be all be benefited and blessed by every good and kind intention of everyone everywhere.
Blessed be. Betty Lue  “True B’Lue”

Remember: The blessings already are and we are now awakening to enjoy them.

With Grandchildren and Healing

We are spending the weekend with our grandchildren, while their parents take a weekend break to go skiing.
Fun times for everyone.  We are driving up to the other grandchildren to have a lunch date together, going to get nails painted, seeing the unusual snow-capped mountains, going to a great park, having a sleepover party tonight, church and Sunday school tomorrow morning, drumming workshop for all ages, then a birthday party and a wildlife museum….awesome and full times for two almost six year old girls and their 4 ½ yr. old brother. They are close to triplets in size, verbal skills and competitiveness.  Great energy for sure.

I am reminded of when I was a TRUE believer, never considering anything less than Good.  I remember a childhood of freedom, playing easily in the yard as a toddler, riding my bike where I wanted to go with no fear. I remember knowing nothing about violence, robbery or kidnapping or molestation as a child.  I remember a childhood of perfect trust in the Good in my world.  I was encouraged to speak with my elders as their equal and having discussions about love and kindness, sharing and fairness and a greater perspective of being a good neighbor.  I never considered anything other than Goodness in everyone and everything.  Life was innocent, sweet and good.

Today children are exposed to violence in cartoons and even Disney movies as toddlers.  I can remember my upset at 5 of age when my uncle, trying to be funny, told the story with Goldilocks jumping out of the window and breaking her neck. I cried and cried, rare for me, and told him to stop telling it wrong.
I am relooking at how we are teaching our children about wrong, evil, bad guys, lying, cheating, stealing and violence. Doesn’t it see more valuable to focus on demonstrating kindness, sharing, good manners, helping and being of service to others?

How can we teach our world to sing?
How can we show our children respect?
How do we change our feelings about our bodies?
How do we use our minds for creating what is beautiful and good?

Can we adults be models of everything we want our children to be?
Can we use our technology in ways that create more respect and responsibility?
Can we show other nations how we are good neighbors and of service?
Can we use language that shows we speak to others as we want to be spoken to?

I am learning how to model with everyone what I want to see in my world.
I am forgiving the places where my world has forgotten.
I am willing to be a loving and respectful reminder.
Let’s remember that we are teaching our children, even in private.

Blessing our children with respect, responsibility and cooperation,
Betty Lue

What Do You Count On?

Who do you trust?
Where do you get guidance for your direction?
How do you make wise decisions?
Where do you get your strength, resilience and power?

Some count on themselves.
That works for a limited time and perspective.
Some count on their leaders, therapists, coaches, physicians, bosses, teachers, ministers.
That works when you know they only see through their limited life experience and education.
Some count on psychics, hand readers, cards and mystical sources.
That works when we remember we can only see through the filters of our own interpretations.

There is wisdom within each one of us.
When we listen to our surface self, we connect with our learned beliefs and historical experiences.
When we listen to our deeper Self, we find a place of peace and love and inner contentment.
When we listen deeply, we know life can be good when we trust in the intrinsic Goodness within.

To count on this place of inner wisdom, we must access it consistently.
To trust there is a place that sees and knows what is truly best for us, we must listen and follow.
To trust we deserve what is truly best, we must forgive our judgments, guilt and fears.
To be willing to listen to this wellspring of profound love and wisdom, we must love ourselves.

Often without realizing how we are sabotaging or misguiding ourselves, we may sit in guilt and blame.
Without understanding  and self forgiveness, we may seek to do penance for our errors (or sins).
Without recognizing we may avoid the place of inner peace, intrinsic Good and seek for payback.
With God, with Good in us, we find a fun, safe and easy way to live with Peace and Happiness.

If you have difficulty counting on the Goodness, the God in you, you may have bypassed its guidance.
If you cannot hear, feel and know the Voice within, you may be sabotaging your listening.
If you do not trust your inner wisdom or intuition, you may not feel worthy or deserving of Good.
If you are not following what you hear, you may not experience the Good that God has in store for you.

If you are not a believer in God, perhaps you believe there is a creative Power that is Good.
If you are not a believer in Good, perhaps you believe humanity does not deserve Good.
If you are not a believer in something greater than yourself, perhaps you believe in finding a better way.
If you are not a believer in a loving and creative universe, perhaps you believe in doing Good.

Whatever you count on, believe it 100% and what you believe will be true for you.
Whatever you believe in consistently and wholeheartedly, will result in what you believe.
As a man thinks, so he becomes.
As we believe and trust (have faith), we will experience and create more.

Bless us all with the opportunity to change our mind, to think again (latin =“re-pent”).
We all are choosers, even if we choose not to choose.
So let us take responsibility for our lives by choosing what is for the highest good of all.

I trust in Goodness.
I trust in the Goodness in you and in me,
Blessed be.

Coming Home

Today we return from Hawaii, the Big Island, Kailua-Kona, after fully enjoying a wonderful time of renewal and revelation. We return to the same place once or twice annually, often with small groups of friends, students and clients for an inspirational retreat.  Hawaii is a place to getaway and return to more innocence and natural living. The healing spiritual energies make our needs for forgiveness andHo’o pono pono more obvious. This land and its people maintain a connection with spiritual energies of gratitude and love..  Ancient teachings are still taught often through Hawaiian language, oral traditions, story-telling, ritual ceremony and dance. The ohana or family continues to be naturally important.

Elders and children are held in reverence with conscious respect and inclusion. There still are sacred sites and remembrance of the history of the peoples.  The environment is honored and treated with conscious respect.  We find inner and outer peace and harmony, ease and simplicity, delight and wonder.

There is a sweet serenity, sanctity and softness in how the sands, sky and sea connect with the islands.
I am inviting you all to join us for our summer retreat here on the Big Island of Hawaii. (see below)

Transformation and healing go together.  Where there is waking up from the dream of lack, littleness and limitation, there is healing and a return to our natural state of wholeness and holiness.  When we see ourselves as bodies, defending again illness, poverty and death, we are caught in the worldly paradigm of victimization and fear.  The world out pictures and perpetuates the beliefs we hold in our minds.
The things we see do homage to our beliefs of lpain and suffering, grief and fear.  All commercialization is really about continuing our allegiance to what our ego self holds true, valuable and necessary.

To free oneself from this insanity and layers of defenses and justification, requires constant erasing of the mind and allowing the Light of Holiness to shine on all things and make them new again.  When we can fully forgive everything and everyone, including ourselves, the reality of pure Love and perfect Trust appears.  When we are erasing, undoing and letting go of our attachments, fears and judgments of anyone or anything, we begin to see a creation of abundant beauty and goodness.
You might say, we see heaven on earth with our inner light shining all the shadow away.

The clouds of despair, disappointment and distraction fade into the background and we behold what really matters,,,,
Love everyone, including yourself.
Take time to remember Spirit, .to stay inspired and happy.
Give your life to what you really value.
Don’t forget you are making a difference with what you think, say and do.
Show up, pay attention, tell the High Truth and detach from the outcome. “Let go and let Good happen.”

Here as some of the native Hawaiian principles to remind us”
Seven Principles of Huna Philosophy(From Mana Cards, The Power of Hawaiian Wisdom)
1.         You create your reality.
2.         You are unlimited.
3.         You get what you concentrate on.
4.         The moment of power is now.
5.         To love is to be happy with.
6.         All power comes from within.
7.         Effectiveness is the measure of truth.

I love how it all is connected from many ancient peoples and teachers.
Loving us all as one people on one planet,
Betty Lue

Changing Our Mind

What we can change is our mind.
Our thoughts attract similar experiences.
Our thoughts cluster to create beliefs.
Beliefs become the filter through which we see and experience our world.

And so it is…..
We can change our minds.
To forgive is to erase our minds.
To erase our minds yields no thoughts.

To have no thoughts or a quiet mind, leave us open.
We can open to the Higher Mind or Holy Thoughts.
We can open to the Will of Goodness (often called God).
We can open to think with the Mind of God.

And with our thoughts of Goodness, we attract Goodness.
With our thoughts of Good, we begin to believe in Good.
We begin to see Good and experience Good in our world.
We behold the Goodness in ourselves and in others.

To think the thoughts taught, believed and seen in the world, yields a worldly viewpoint.
To think the thoughts of duality, good and evil, we create beliefs in the same.
With beliefs in good and evil, we attract and experience good and evil in our lives.
To forgive or undo these thoughts requires that we erase our minds with love.

Worldly whitewash covers the dirt with sugar or temporary whiteout, “holy pretending”.
Spiritual showers cleanse us and return us to the innocence from which we have come.
To “become as a child” is to release “adulteration”, defensiveness and justification and see with new eyes.
To be “born again” for me is to give and receive true forgiveness of all things and return to wholeness.

I am choosing to use this time in Hawaii on sabbatical, a spiritual vacation, to “innocentize” myself.
I am choosing to reclaim, my natural state, free from the thinking and adulteration of the world.
I am choosing to let go and trust in the Goodness that always is in me and in all.
I am choosing to release any learned needs to protect or defend, judge or justify.

I am choosing to love me,  all of me, mind, body and Spirit.
And in loving me, I can see and love You, all of you, Mind, Body and Spirit.
Betty Lue

Distraction or Contribution?

This may be an enlightening question to ask oneself.
Am I contributing to my world with my thoughts, words and activities?
Or am I distracting myself with my thoughts, words and activities?
Life can be a source of  inspiration or feeding oneself with temporary diversions.

I am the one who chooses how I use my time, my mind, my body and my spirit.
When life is focused on what is intended to be Good for others, it will always be good for me.
When life has no focus or intention, it may follow the path of conformity and ordinariness.
When life is used to build, create or succeed, the focus will be on fulfillment of the goal.

Here on sabbatical in Hawaii this week,  I had three distinct goals or intentions:
1)    To create a time of “innocentizing” or release of the past to be renewed in body and Spirit.
2)    To complete the editing of at least one of the four books to be published this Spring.
3)    To vision the next 5-10 years for Robert and myself with focus on balance and contribution.
To fulfill these goals, they needed to be stated, honored and agreed to by all parts of me.

While the goals are in process and will continue, just as life does, we have also made additional choices.
We bought organic fruits and vegetables and prepared yummy meals, good for the planet and the body.
We have visited our favorite places and people to say “aloha” and to connect with them face to face.
We spent time at spiritual centers and sacred sites to give and receive blessings from the people and the land.
We continue to do our own sacred “work”, as it is our calling and reason for being.
We enjoy the wind, the skies, the seas, the flowers, the smiles, the fertile earth and her bounty.
We love ourselves and one another as well as each one we meet with the Aloha Spirit.

These all are contributions to ourselves, to others and to the planet.
These are gifts we give and receive acknowledging our gratitude for life.
These are blessings which expand with our appreciation.
These are loving reminders to ourselves and our sisters and brothers to live life wisely and well.

The distractions could easily be eating foods not beneficial to us or staying up late.
Distractions can be judging the people, the places, our bodies and thinking too much.
We can create diversions like finding the right and perfect restaurant or parking place.
We can amuse ourselves with site-seeing, spending money shopping or watching TV.

Distractions may have their place in time.
They can be enjoyed when we are not feeling guilt or self judgment.
The empty calories in life come in the form of anything that does not inspire and sustain us.
We have the opportunity to forgive and choose again and yet again.

When we remember to forgive all judgments, every moment is healing and revealing.
When we reclaim our innocence and simply choose what feels “right and true”, we feel good.
When we judge nothing and listen within for the highest and best answer, we are guided well.
When we live in the moment giving and receiving all Good, we know all is provided for our Good.

Vacations can be made healing and sacred.
Simply choose for what is good for all.
Receiving your blessings and returning them to you with joy,
I am loving you and me and all of us as one,
Betty Lue

Thoughts Create

Thoughts held in mind create and attract like kind.
When our mind is clear, our thoughts are pure.
When our thoughts are pure, we see only love.
When our mind is full, we see through the filters of our past.

When we forgive, we erase the mind.
When we forgive, we undo what is not here.
When we forgive, we see everything differently.
When we forgive, we open the way to really live.

Life is not a collection of stories of glory.
Life is not an accumulation of pain and suffering.
Life is not the karma from our past erros.
Life is not the place where we have good or bad luck.

Life is the opportunity to create each new day.
Life is the place where we come to play out our dreams.
Life is the awareness we are creators with our thoughts and will.
Life is the canvas on which we can choose to undo or to make true.

When we repeat the same experience, it is because we have held the thought.
When we seem to face the same fear, it is our forgetting to erase the tape,
Sometimes we keep a copy so we can understand and sometimes to right the wrong.
Sometimes we believe it is the truth for us and we are victims of the experience.

As I sit by the sea, watching the waves wash over the rocks, the sand, the earth,
I realize it is my stuckness in thought and judgment and fear that holds things near.
When I allow my mind to be cleared with breath, forgiveness and healing, (ho o pono pono),
I realize I am innocent and free to choose again.
I am not a victim of my thoughts or yours.
I am new every moment.
I need judge nothing.
Everything is a choice that I am making to create what I want to see and believe.
I can simply undo thoughts that I no longer want to be true.
I can forgive others thoughts about aging, and illness and death.
I can erase all pictures of the past from my mind and replace them with blessings and love.
I can let goodness and God replace every thought that lingers in my mind.
I can give myself the gift of beauty and goodness and Love all the time.

Thoughts of sweet surrender
    Thoughts of healing and home.
        Thoughts of peace and remembrance.
            Thoughts of Eternal Love.

When you release the world mind,
    there is only Love.
When you relinquish attack and defense,
    there is perfect Trust.
When you live in holy remembrance,
    there is always Inner Peace.

What more could I ask than to return to the innocence of the Love I AM.
Blessings of Peace to us all,
Betty Lue

Prayer of Release

May I release what I thought was real.
May I let go of all I do not know.
May I cease trying to make sense of the world.
May I simply forgive and let go.

May I celebrate this moment now.
May I give my love to all who come to me.
May I speak simple words of love and good cheer.
May I lift my eyes to the perfection and beauty I see.

May I forgive and undo beliefs I hold dear.
May I forgive the stories creating only fear.
May I give my mind to the thoughts of Loving kindenss.
May I create always Goodness in my Mind.

I receive as I ask, simply for the asking.
I give thanks my requests are already answered.
I appreciate and increase the good in my life.
I erase what is not and see only what is.

I thank God and the creative power of conscious prayer that this is so.
For so it is!

Relationships Are For Healing!

Can I make this simple to understand?
We are here to remember our essential nature, our wholeness and holiness.
Humanity has forgotten its own innocence and perfect nature.

Perfect Love created us a perfect Love.
Goodness created us Good.
Joy created us Joyful.
Peace created us Peaceful.
We all are created to be like our creator.
And so it is, we have forgotten our natural state.

With every relationship we have an opportunity to remember and practice the Truth.
With every relationship we can behold what really is as we forgive the rest.
With every relationship we can forgive and erase our own judgments and give gratitude.
With every relationship we can see the other as we see ourselves, a projection of our inner beliefs.

Here in Hawaii, I can see, feel and know how the rocks and trees are teaching me the truth.
I experience how the skies and the seas give me the answers that I seek about energy and healing.
I find that in quiet, without the distraction of planning, comparing and thinking, I hear answers.

I receive the life energy I need to fill me up so that I can give endlessly to all.

In our everyday relationships, we can try to get what we think we need.
We can give what we make up the other person is trying to get because they believe they are needy.
Or we can be simply willing to be present, a gift of Love, that gently gives without needing to get.
Relationship healing is to heal ourselves, so we can give without needing to get anything in return.

When relationships are based on getting the love we want, there will be uncertainty and doubt.
When we need someone to fill us up and satisfy our needs, we are dependent on their energy/love.
When we are dependent on another, we will be satisfied when they give and hurt or angry when they don’t .
Everyone has good full days and bad empty days, where they have their own needs to fill.

Where we are unhealed, we cannot be depended on to give consistently.
Where we are needy, we cannot be counted on to give to the needy.
When we have not healed ourselves of dependency on another, we cannot be counted on.
When both parties in relationship are unhealed, there will be constant drama and uncertainty.

To continue wounding one another with our demands, threats, complaints and dependencies, will not yield healing or satisfaction for either party.
Until we take full responsibility for our own healing, we will have inconsistent commitment, giving, helpfulness and satisfying harmonious relationships.
Healing relationships are those in which both people take full responsibility for their own healing.
They make no demands on the other.

When we are healed, we are truly helpful.
When we are healed, others benefit from our wholeness.
When we are healed, we give love without ceasing.
When we are healed, we are whole, happy and free.

Thanks to all our relationships which show us immediately where we have healing work to do!

Blessings of gratitude and respect to all of us who choose to do this healing and holy work!
Betty Lue

When everyone WINS, the relationships are harmonious, peaceful and enjoyable.

What is a blessing?
A loving reminder.
A gift of Peace.
A happy Thanksgiving.

Blessings are a simple way of bestowing the best you know on everyone and everything.
Bless you when you sneeze.
Bless you when you have need.
Bless you when you forget.
Bless you when you wake up.
Bless you when you work.
Bless you when you play.
Bless you when you love.
Bless you when you are afraid.

When I am blessing you, I am praying for the best for you.
When I am blessing you, I am thanking you for being in my life.
When I am blessing you, I am singing you a love song.
When I am blessing you, I am gifting you with the Goodness of God.

If you don’t believe in God, may you believe in Good.
If you don’t believe in blessings, may you believe in well wishes.
If you don’t believe in Good energy shared, may you believe someone cares.
If you don’t believe you are worthy of blessings, may you believe you are forgiven.

Blessings bless the giver as well as the receiver.
Blessings are unlimited in their power to amplify the Good.
Blessings are a gift of Goodness recognized in the giver and shared with the recipient.
Blessings are a choice to give voice to the Good that already is and always shall be.

As I breathe, I am blessing.
As I speak, I am blessing.
As I listen, I am blessing.
As I live, I am blessing.

My life is a blessing to me and through me to you and to all.
My love is a blessing to me and through me to you and to all.
My light is a blessing to me and through me to you and to all.
And so is your life and love and light a blessing  to me and to you and to all.

I treasure the precious opportunity to share our blessings in this world.
Together we are blessed as the world is blessed through us.
I thank you.
I bless you.

(On Sabbatical In Hawaii until Feb 25th. Available by email and phone.)


The Light has come
    On the cosmic sea.

All this Is
    And will always be.

I am free  
    In my forgiveness now.

I am Love.

Many simple poems came this early morning as I sat by the sea.
I asked my inner questions and listened and let them be.
I gave myself to peace and love and received them all.
I went deep within, still here and yet not.
Open and willing am I.

Could you trust that deep within you is a voice, calm and sure, clear and true?
Can you imagine how forgiveness, perfect and complete, makes us ever new?
Is it possible there is a Goodness, that is always here, offering all we need?
Can we really believe we deserve the best there is, beyond the illusion of time?

It seems we might need to set aside our addictions, attachments and anxieties.
It appears we must relinquish attack and judgment and our need to know.
It could be we are blinded by a world of things to do, things to make and things to have.
It may be our time to forgive it all…. the past, the plans, the defenses against simple Truth.

Blindfolds block out the Light.
Fears and judgments limit the Love.
Busyness and trying leave little room..
For quiet and listening and receiving.

Perhaps our treasure is always here.
Deep within the energy of Beingness.
We can simply step back into the stillness.
To receive Abundant Good that always is within.

I Am

A piece of art
    I Am.
A gift of Love
    I Am.
A song of truth
    I Am.
A world of Joy  
    I am.
I Am because
    I Am here to be
All that God created in me
As me.

I Am.

Always Loving to Love You and All Creation,
Betty Lue

On My Way

On my way early today for a one week sabbatical in Hawaii.
No beaches, except to meditate by the ocean and listen within.
No restaurants, just simply fruits, vegetables and whole grains prepared in our condo.
No sight-seeing except to bless the beauty of the land.

This is our home away from home.
This is a time to be quiet and connect deeply.
This is a place with little or no talking.
This is a moment to savor the precious present.

When we can each live in joy, love with no conditions and appreciate the Good, we are in heaven.
When we can be alone and always connected, enjoy the familiar and laugh at the unexpected,
When we can sing into the wind and dance in the rain, we are home again and again.
When we can fully be ourselves, listening to and sharing our heart’s highest Truth, we are in Love.

Imagine even for a moment each day in your own quiet way, living in Love.
Envision yourself giving your happiness with each breath.
Embrace the life story that has moments of learning from challenges and appreciating the glorious times.
Enhance your own interventions using forgiveness of limitation and blessing the freedoms.

In the beginning and in the end, we are creating the goodness and beauty we behold.
When we have forgiven our guilt, our anger and fear, we will behold everything new and happy and clear.
We each can take our own sabbatical, day after day, vacation in heaven our own unique way.
Let this be a reminder to find the place of peace and joy and love in you.

You are worthy of the rest, renewal and rejoicing,
Betty Lue

Are You Listening?

I can feel the changing times…….for the world and for me.
I can see the letting go of what no longer works…..for the world and for me.
I can hear the sounds of fear, curiosity and amazement….for the world and for me.
There is a change happening in all that seems to be.

Sometimes our relationship with the physical world becomes the barometer for the need to change.
Sometimes our bodies out-picture the need for release and renewal.
Sometimes jobs and finances, our homes and cars, demonstrate our need to undo what no longer works.
Sometimes we simply need to pay attention, forgive and choose again.

Life is filled with cycles and seasons, different stages and reasons for being wherever we are.
Life gives us signals to change and rearrange where we may be content, stuck or just asleep.
Life shows us what is not working, but we must listen within for what will work for us.
Happiness and inner peace our the signs we have found our way again.

“Tis a gift to be simple.
Tis a gift to be free.
Tis a gift to come round
Where we ought to be.

When true simplicity is gained.
To bow and to bend we shall not be ashamed.
And when we find ourselves in the place just right.
It will be in the valley of love and delight.”

This simple song reminds us of the need to look for love and delight.
It tells us that being humble and flexible are truly needed for simple happy loving lives.

I know several beings who have made their transition, releasing their bodies and moving on.
I know others who are transitioning with jobs, finances, relationships and health issues.
I realize change is the natural occurrence of physical life.
And yet we cling, attach demand and push for our own outcome and timing.

Perhaps the suffering and pain, regret and guilt, blame and resentment is the sign we are not listening.
Perhaps attachments and addictions, stubbornness and resistance, are holding on to what no longer works.
Perhaps it is time to be deeply hones and connected with ourselves.
Perhaps we can let go of what worked in the past and listen for what is highest and best right now.

Let us commit to spend time daily to ask questions, the important and deep ones.
And then sit quietly listening and writing what we hear inside.
Yes listen to the ego’s ideas and complaints and then deeper to the higher self guidance and assurance.
Everyone has an inner voice, a place of peace, comfort and loving guidance.

Listen to your hear.
Listen for your joy.
Listen to the Voice that Loves you always.

Listening deeply for the freedom and trust that comes from LOVE!
Betty Lue

Gone to Hawaii for the next week or so to Listen!

Letting Go of Fear

Fear blocks Love.
Fear constricts the flow.
Fear begets more fear.
Fear is expressed with anger, hurt, jealousy, disease, conflict, judgment and pain.

Fear is an invitation to forgive.
Fear is a call for love.
Fear is the recognition that we have forgotten.
Fear is the sign of separation from God and our Good.

When we allow ourselves to believe in the world, we are confused.
When we forsake our innocence, we will fear, judge, attack and defend.
When we lose connection with our inner Essence, we will feel alone.
When we choose to believe outer authority rather than listen within, we distrust our inner knowing.

Letting go of fear is the call for our times.
Letting go of fear is the release from guilt.
Letting go of fear is the suspension of all judgment.
Letting go of fear is the need for peace.

Love is letting go of fear.
Gratitude is the path we must travel.
Listening deeply to the voice within we find our way.
Trusting in Higher Power and greater vision and wisdom than our own is our direction.

In order to listen, we must be still.
In order to love, we must forgive.
In order to be give thanks, we must see what we appreciate.
In order to trust, we must seek what is Eternal and unchanging.

Life is an invitation to relinquish all fear and attack and travel a path of forgiveness and peace.
Life is a course to reclaim our natural innocence and love.
Life is the valuing of what is our inheritance and our holy purpose.
Life is a playground in which we must choose the way of Love.

Let us remember to be kind in our mind.
Let us choose what is fun and safe and easy for everyone.
Let us invite everyone to join us in peace.
Let us help everyone win and dance together in love.

Loving us all as one,
Betty Lue

No arguing, pettiness, emotional dumping or negativity.

There are many more agreements which I encourage you and your partner to write together.
I encourage all parties to take time to re-evaluate your agreements monthly or on a regular basis.
As circumstances change, there is a need to re-commit to what works for all participants.
Families need to meet to look at the specific needs of each individual to be at their best.
Couples need to ensure that the relationship is “serving all parties.”
Business partners need to return to their original agreement and consider changing roles as needed.

Life requires that we be in relationship.
With respect for ourselves and each other there is open communication.
With responsibility for the quality of our relationships, there is a willingness to seek what works for all.
With cooperation there is encouragement to listen for ways to serve the needs of everyone.
When everyone WINS, the relationships are harmonious, peaceful and enjoyable.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s is usually designated as the day we give Loving attention to those who are SPECIAL to us.
For some it could be seen as the day to celebrate the Love in us.
Or perhaps ..this is the time to acknowledge the Love we feel for those around us.
Whether you see it as focused on you, your partner, family, friends or the Love of God, it is Good.

I notice that where many are hurt by love and loving is when they make Love special.
When we give love only to the special ones, we believe we need to be special to them.
When they respond with rejection, neglect, lack of caring, we take it personally.
For many years I thought Love was to be given and received by those especially close.

I have learned that Love is our Natural State.
Loving is a way of expressing and extending the Love We Are.
Giving Love through words, songs, prayers, gift, quality time and service are among the ways to give.
When we give Love to get Love, we may find ourselves feeling lacking, lonely or left out.

When I remember that Love is Who and what I AM, I trust in the constant state of Loving.
When I realize that Love is who You are and receive the gift of your love, I am never lacking.
When I recognize that the appearance of lack of Love, is simply the call for remembering Love, I forgive.
When I acknowledge that the world needs Love, I share the Love I Am freely with all I encounter.

Love shared may be a smile, a poem, a song.
Love may be expressed with a kind word, a thank you or compliment.
Love is acted with holding a door open, a nod, a special acknowledgment.
Love is given with every healing thought, blessing or vision of wholeness.

Yes, today, whether alone or with many you can love is a day to Love YOU for Being Love!
Today is the reminder to give love no matter what.
Today is a gift to yourself when you are willing to receive Love from all the Love being shared.
Today is a healing reminder to our world that Love matters and must be given to be fully alive.

I am loving you as I love me.
I am loving you as I love my family and friends.
I am loving you as I love my home and work.
I am loving you as I love Goodness and Beauty everywhere.

I am loving you.. all the time, whether you know it or now.
Love gives my whole life meaning and purpose, vitality and joy.
Loving you, 

Betty Lue


There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;
No disease that enough love will not heal;
No door that enough love will not open;
No gulf that enough love will not bridge;
No wall that enough love will not throw down;
No sin that enough love will not redeem.

 It makes no difference
  how deeply seated may be the trouble,
How hopeless the outlook,
How muddled the tangle,
How great the mistake.
A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.

If only you could love enough, you would be the happiest
and most powerful being in the world.

Divine Order

Fear begets fear.
Love begets Love.
Wholeness begets wholeness.
Divine Order is in recognizing that I am creating the world I see.

When I am responsible for the feelings I have, I claim the images I see.
When I am responsible for the beliefs I hold, I own the projections I make.
When I am responsible for my own healing, I reveal the natural wholeness and holiness.
When I trust, respect and love my true Self, I see, trust, respect and love yours.

When we hold pain in our minds, we have pain in emotions and  thoughts.
When we hold fear in our minds, we have fear in our bodies and feelings.
When we are remembering past history, we may unconsciously attract similar experiences.
When we are resisting and avoiding past similar, we may find them before us to be healed.

To reveal is to heal.
To conceal is to hold against ourselves.
To become aware with forgiveness and love is to initiate the natural healing process.
To allow ourselves to find peace with all things creates a life of love and appreciation.

 From A Course in Miracles:
“Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity to heal.”
“All healing is essentially the release from fear.”
“All healing is release from the past.”
“To love yourself is to heal yourself.”
“To forgive is to heal.”
“We are made whole in our desire to make whole.”

When I seek to help another, I am seeking to forgive and heal a part of me and humanity.
Each one of us is but an aspect of the whole.
There is no separation.
What we give and pray and will to do is given to both to me and to you.

And so it is that I find myself revealing and healing in my own life  all that is needed to be undone.
Life is for each of us, as one, an opportunity to reveal and heal pieces of the past.
We together can spend our life forgiving and living the best we know as reminders for one another.
All of us plays the perfect part to heal the whole of humanity.

There is so much Goodness to be revealed.
There is so much Love and appreciation to be shared.
There is so much healing and Holiness to be known.
There is so much unity and oneness to be experienced.

We are all here to remember our True Identity.
We are here to unite in love and acceptance with one  another.
We are here to remember the Infinite Source of our Good.
In this we can rest and rejoice in the Blessings already present.

Loving us all as one, 

Betty Lue

The Miracle of Appreciation

Just a few days of really appreciating someone can turn around a relationship or situation.
Just imagine stopping all complaining and criticism.
Just imagine seeking any and every excuse to say thank you, to smile with appreciation.
Just imagine how good it feels to express gratitude rather than negativity.

The response from others will astound and amaze you.
In the beginning, they may not believe you.
Then they come around to receive your gratitude.
Eventually they respond with giving you back more expressions of their gratitude.
This is a note I received from  a dear person who used entirely gratitude in her relationship with her partner.  Notice how quickly he responded!

Right away I started sending him notes saying thank you for this, thank you for that. And when he came home the same, every little thing that I noticed I said thank you to him in some way. The first day I think he was kind of looking at me funny, (and I felt a little lighter) by the second he was smiling and happy, and by the third, he was doing stuff all over the place, without being asked and happily! Then by the 4th day he starts talking about how he feels his energy is shifting and it is like he woke up all of a sudden that he has been walking around in a miserable grumpy fog and he doesn't want to do that anymore. He said he wants to be happy and enjoy his children and have a good relationship with me, etc. He even looked me in the eye and said he was sorry! He did that over the weekend and then again today.
I had decided I was going to try this for a week but was so surprised when only after a few days I all of a sudden had dramatic results. It was great and things are already way better. That is truly amazing, thank you.

The attitude of gratitude will heal your mind and your life will change for the good.
The attitude of criticism will make you sick and your life will slide downhill.
The choice to appreciate will increase the Goodness and Happiness within you and your affairs.
The choice to disrespect and denigrate will deplete the Goodness and Joy within you and your life.

Yes, It is true.  The world is a reflection of what is within your Mind.
Your relationships will let you see what needs to be forgiven and release to have peace.
Your finances will show you how you have believed giving and receiving occurs.
Your health is a reflection of your learned beliefs in fear, anger and the misuse of your body.

To appreciate you and your life empowers you to remember the inner Truth.
To appreciate others and their learning inspires them to remember their inner Truth.
To value all you have learned and are learning encourages you to continue your journey to freedom.
To value what you really want to see and be, have and do, is to awaken the purpose of life in you.

Love unconditionally.  Serve from your heart.  Remember God and Goodness.
For so it is that the Holy Purpose of Life is done.
Loving you,  

Betty Lue

You are  my spiritual partners as we conspire to co-create a better world.
My heart smiles and my spirit rejoices.
Your gifts of love and appreciation inspires me and feed my soul.
Celebrate the gifts we share and grow in abundance and beauty.
Offering all I am given in Love,  supports, strengthens and affirms this Love.

I love you, as you live the life you consciously desire.
I am supported and sustained by your kindness and generosity.
May you  honor your Holy Self as you walk in Goodness, Beauty and Love.

Loving You,
Betty Lue

Emotions May Mislead

Emotions tend to lead us to more emotions.
Emotions distort our perceptions.
Emotions come from thoughts.
Thoughts create perceptions and feelings.

When we allow emotions (energy in motion) to lead us, we usually confirm the perceived cause.
Emotions are meant to be a wakeup call, not to be dismissed or covered over, but noticed.
When we are emotionally upset, we are calling for Truth.
When we are emotionally judging, hurting and afraid, we have lost our center and our purpose.

It matters not how we name or diagnose our emotional state, except to acknowledge we have forgotten.
What matters is that we return to Love….love for ones Essence and Love for all.
What matters is that we remember our healing and Holy Purpose.
All relationships are for the purpose of healing.

Perfect Love casts out all fear.
Clearing out history, projections, limiting beliefs, attachments, fears and failures is the healing work.
Undoing what we misperceive as lack of love, opens the door to see situations and people differently.
Recognize lack of peace (emotional intensity) confirms we have healing work to be done.

When we feel an emotion, we tend to identify it and look for its cause.
When we express emotionally, we tend to justify and prove the reason for our feelings.
When we use our emotions to manipulate, threaten or blame another, we forget the Truth.
When we believe our emotions and let them lead our behaviors, we believe we are right.

Being “right” tends to get us stuck in mentally proving ourselves with lots of words.
Being “right” usually results in making the other person “wrong” and the cause.
Being “right” often creates conflict, disagreement, arguments and insoluble problems.
Being ‘right” renders us stuck and stubborn and defending our position, opinion or complaint.

Forgiving our righteousness begins to open the door to see more of the truth.
Forgiving our defensiveness allows us to listen and look for other perspectives.
Forgiving our attack thoughts helps us release our distorted thinking.
Forgiving our errors facilitates our forgiveness of everyone’s mistakes.

It is easy to judge.
We have been taught to judge as our defense.
It seems to be more difficult to forgive.
We may have believed forgiveness shows weakness.

With forgiveness comes patience, possibility, purpose and peace.
With forgiveness comes consciousness, compassion and true communication.
With forgiveness comes willingness to listen, let go, look within and learn.
With forgiveness come Love, healing Love, that ends all fear and separation.

Loving us all as we learn to heal our mistaken thoughts, perceptions and emotions,
Betty Lue

The 12 Principles of Attitudinal Healing

1.       The essence of our being is love.
2.       Health is inner peace, healing is letting go of fear.
3.       Giving and receiving are the same.
4.       We can let go of the past and of the future.
5.       Now is the only time there is, and each instant is for giving.
6.       We can learn to love ourselves and others by forgiving rather than by judging.
7.       We can become love finders rather than fault finders.
8.       We can choose and direct ourselves to be peaceful inside, regardless of what is happening outside.
9.       We are students and teachers to each other.
10.    We can focus on the whole of life, rather than the fragments.
11.    Since love is eternal, change need not be viewed as fearful.
12.    We can always perceive others as either extending love or giving a call for help.

Attitudinal Healing affirms that we are responsible for our thoughts and whatever feelings we experience.
Attitudinal Healing encourages us to re-examine our relationships, bringing them into the present by releasing past judgments and grievances.
Attitudinal Healing reminds us that perception is a mirror of what is in our mind.

When Is Help Not Helpful?

When we give help that is unwanted, it may be offensive or interfering with the other’s learning.
When we offer help that creates resistance or defensiveness, it is not truly helpful.
When we give help that disempowers or discourages the one we believe needs help, it is not helpful.
When we offer help that misleads the other to trust us rather than themselves, it is not helpful.
When we offer help that patronizes or sets us apart from the need for healing, it teaches falsely.
When we interfere and teach fear by butting into another’s process, it is not helpful.
When we publicly offer help, shaming or criticizing, it is not helpful.
When we evaluate another’s work focused on what is wrong, it is not helpful.
When we do not take care of our own needs and project them onto others, it is not helpful.
When we think of another as needy or incapable, it is not helpful.

Consider the times when someone tried to help you, but it hurt, offended or interrupted your process.
Look for times when you realize your help hurt more than it helped.
Acknowledge when you help was received as genuine and truly helpful.
Appreciate your sensitivity when you knew intuitively it will helpful to offer help.

Many have learned to find self worth in helping others.
Some have tried to be better than others by demonstrating their wisdom or importance.
Some are busy convincing themselves they are wanted and needed by teaching others to be dependent.
Some think they are loving and kind by interfering in other’s lives.

The best way to know when to offer help, is to listen within.
The inner guidance will often be “send blessings” or “see them whole.” Take time to stop and ask you own intention before offering help.
Be wiling to notice any egoic attachment to being better than or getting noticed or being the savior.

Conditions of service, truly being helpful:Wait until you are asked.
Or offer help if needed and wanted.
Ask specifically what help they want.
Clarify any conditions that may exist.
Set a time frame for the help.—beginning and ending time.
If confidential sharing, set aside a private place.
Make sure there is no sacrifice or martyrdom present for you.
Recognize and acknowledge how you are being helped by the service you are giving.
Create no guilt or need for payback.
Give from your own fullness and joy in giving.
Be sure your intention is pure.

Loving us all as we serve us (service)

Down and Out for 24 Hours

You guessed it, I did myself in.
Sickness and pain are usually a result of inner conflict or guilt or both.
When we are not at peace and alignment with our inner “God” voice, we become humanly vulnerable.
When we rise above the conflict and seek only to extend Peace to ourselves and others, we find peace.

Those who seek peace, only need to extend it.
So peace to my body, my mind and to all other minds.
May we choose peace everyday, rather than try to make sense out of emotional insanity.
May we learn to let go, when we know an emotional state is not good for us.

The work seems to be to set ourselves free so that we can be truly happy and a peace.
The work is letting go by undoing what we think we know and so carefully hold on to.
The work is saying what is true and doing what we know to do and then trusting in the highest outcome.
The work is aligning ourselves with Goodness and releasing all the rest.

I continue to learn as I take on the human experience of trying to please and then doubting my inner voice.
I recognize how we all find difficulty listening to all the opinions and grievances around us.
I understand how frustrating it can be when we make a dinner for a family of complainers.
I have occasional experiences which show me how ordinary unconscious life can be.

While I did not make dinner for complaining folks recently, I have in the past.
While I did not experience people openly judging me and my creations, I felt some displeasure.
While I do not hear folks being disrespectful in my everyday life, when it happens it can hurt.
So I understand and choose to make a difference in my life and yours to return to love.

Self serving folks have learned to survive and thrive, they must serve themselves first.
Relational folks have found a sense of wholeness and love in intimate relationships.
Social/global folks find meaning and purpose in serving the good of the whole.
All of us have some of each, but a predominant instinct occurs.

We may expect others to care about what we care about.
We may want others to share in the ways we share.
We may hope that those around us express respect, responsibility and cooperation the way we learned.
However, everyone is unique and perceives their place in the world differently.

Judging no one and accepting everyone is key to inner peace, happiness and health.
Being willing to be flexible, resilient, take nothing personally is key to staying in love.
I am a happy and willing learner, always awakening to continuous fogiveness and gratitude.
I am loving you as I let go of trying to understand, fix or figure out the insanity of humanity.

I allowed others behavior and words to hurt me.
This is very good to allow me to experience personally what others may feel a lot.
This is very helpful to strengthen my practice of forgiveness and blessing all situations.
This is very timely since I taught a Forgiveness and Faith Workshop yesterday.

We all are creative beings.
I create with words, vision and inspiring environments.
When someone comes along and adds seasonings to your special recipe, it may feel hurtful.
When someone changes the lyrics of the song you worked on for weeks, it may feel disrespectful.
When someone rearranges your created home or workspace, it may feel unappreciative.

“What is the Truth? “ And “What can I do?” are the two questions I ask myself.

The truth is I am loved and appreciated.
The truth is I appreciate my creations.
The truth is people don’t know any better.
The truth is I am here to forgive all things.
The truth is I know how much I work at creating what is truly good for all.
The truth is I can trust others to be doing their best as well.
The truth is I can release my attachment to what I have created and shared.
The truth is my holiness blesses all situations and people, when I forgive.

What can I do?
I can forgive myself for letting anyone or anything hurt me.
I can trust in the power and presence of Love in me.
I can be grateful that people care enough to share with me.
I can love everyone anyway.
I can choose to take in what resonates with me and release the rest with blessings.
I can take impeccable care of myself.
I can forgive myself for over giving.
I can release my judgments of the judgments.
I can release all defensiveness.
I can trust God and Good in all things.
I can be patient, kind, generous and open-minded no matter what.

I choose to remember the Truth of the Love I Am.
I choose to teach a better way.
I choose to forgive everything that seems to harm.
I choose to do what I can do and let the rest go with Love.

Loving me and you as we learn together the most loving way we know.

As I remember my wholeness and Holiness, I cease making all demands on anything or anyone.

I am deeply and profoundly grateful this is so.
In remembering, we are healed.
Loving you,  

Betty Lue

I forgive myself for letting anyone hurt me.
I forgive my body’s limitation.
I forgive myself for being late.
I forgive everything.

Make the sound “AAAH” for 1-2 minutes.
Imagine that you are opening your mind.

Now write and say 30 Choices. 

I choose to be happy.
I choose to be free.
I choose to do what I love.
I choose to forgive….

In the Evening (before bed)
Write and say 30 Gratitudes
I appreciate the energy I have.
I love being happy.
I am grateful I have you in my life.
I thank God.

Make the  sound “OM”  the Universal sound for Love and God for 1-2 minutes.

PS Even a few of each is better than none.
Do what you can and trust it is working.

Loving You always, 

Betty Lue
