Di’s Xmas in July 2016: Day 8

XmasinJulyTest

intro by Di…

Everyone I’ve met in the past 7 years seems meant to be.  Barclay
knew it right away, as I did, that we are intended from before time to
be “in sync” with each other in the work of shifting the way we
see things.

I’m honored to have her contribution here, given with love at one of
the busiest times she’s had lately. An author at the height of her work,
in transit from one state to another.

I just had to have her message here for all of us. From scientific
therapist mindset to universal spirituality,  Barclay has experienced
some vital years of deepening.  I was so excited when she shared
about allowing the non-dominant hand to write “the answer,” that I
picked up the practice myself.  I consistently receive answers I would
never have conceived.  Open to the Energy of one who has a way
to instant Guidance!

Shift your pen…Shift your Consciousness
…………………………~Barclay Braden

“My life was changed by a grief tool I encountered nearly twenty-five
years ago. In a weekly gathering of our study group for A Course In
Miracles, we had a visitor. She had come to ask what we thought about written conversations she’d been having with her mother…who had died some months before.

A nun had told her about a simple method…asking a question with your regular, dominant hand, and answering with your nondominant hand. In writing to her mother, in this format, the messages she received felt true to her, but our guest was uncertain about their validity. She knew we were a broad minded group, open to metaphysical realities, and she wondered
what we might make of her experience. We encouraged her to continue
the experiment. If it felt true, and helped her feel closer to her mother, it seemed to us there was intrinsic value in such inquiry.

I went home that evening to try out the tool for myself. What happened was truly astounding to me. (If you’re curious, you can read more about this discovery on my website barclaybraden.com or at about.me/barclaybraden, where you can leave me a message.)

Somewhat ironically, I did not end up using the tool to write to departed loved ones. Instead I began an invaluable dialogue with a voice who identified herself as Faith. My exchanges with her have fruitfully continued now for nearly a quarter century. If you dare to try this intriguing inquiry tool, I would love to hear from you! (BarclayBraden@gmail.com)

I asked her, just now, what was the most important message I could share with you about grief. Her response came immediately, in a single word: ALLOWING.”

With love and wishes, Barclay Braden

musings…

Lesson 21: I am determined to see things differently.

 

wrapping up by Di …

Barclay’s Xmas in July Gift is her years of confirming
the need to shift our way of seeing things, and how
natural it is for us.

Changing neurocircuitry by changing hands helps us get
wider vision with more possibilities.

A Course in Miracles guides us to ALLOW the Great Peace
that is our Highest Self to do the seeing things differently,
even when we are entrenched in miserable squabbles,
and fears that fade in its Brightness.

We don’t even have to know how to see differently,
just go within and recognize our Higher Self is seeing
in ways that bring peace, not suffering.

I’ve used both, and am especially blown away at how
my non-dominant hand always gives short and sweet
answers that I’d never have come up with: creativity
on the inside spills over as creative solutions on the
outside. In fact, it just worked again for me today… I
got angry with someone and lost my peace for awhile,
until I listened to Lesson 21, the above video, and sat
down with my journal, asking the question with my
right, and being amazed at the simple answer that
was pure Love writing with my left hand.

invitation to chime in…
Have you had the non-dominant hand writing
experience?  Do tell!
How about A Course in Miracles? What did you
think of Lesson 21?
Do you think seeing things differently
can help with our identity confusion that is part of grief?

Di’s Xmas in July 2016: Day 8 — 8 Comments

  1. Thanks for this valuable tool; even sacred connection….I have not been able as yet, to receive any ‘knowing, or guidance’ from my non-dominant hand. It feels like I am putting so much energy into making each stroke….that so far, nothing is coming out or on paper; except for what feels like forced, made up words. I will keep trying this technique. It seems to work so well for so many. I am very far right brained. LOL Thanks Barclay!

  2. Knowing I have an Infinity of Loving Wisdom to tap into makes all the difference, for me, about how nothing is impossible, there is definitely a perfect way that works for all, and it does not have to be hard! I love getting right out of bed each morning to sit in my easy armchair with my journal. It’s become an old friend… ever ancient, ever new! Thank you, Barclay, SO much, for taking time for us! When can we buy your book? Can’t wait! It’s time to start buying those Christmas Gifts!

    • Dearest Di, blessings are flowing to you for sharing my writing tool with your precious circle of beloveds. It is truly marvelous to be connecting with others after years of solitude while Faith at Hand has been under construction. It’s a real thrill to pronounce my first draft DONE. I’ll be sure to keep you posted as the book gets ready for publication. (Thanks for sharing me! 🙂

      • It’s just wonderful to have you be part of this special community. I can sure relate to “years of solitude.” It’s absolutely a BIG DEAL to have the first draft DONE! Whew! We’ll be keeping in touch.

  3. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule.
    Di taught me to use the non-dominant hand experience. I need to do it more but it’s quite mind blowing.
    I loved lesson 21. I listened twice.
    How can I do the course in miracles?
    I was told the other day that it’s not that we let old triggers get us again, it’s the amount of time before we rebound back. Different way of seeing it and now I see I have made huge improvements.
    It’s a blessing to be a part of this.
    Love to all x

    • Thank you for responding to my offering, dear Vivienne. It is a real joy for me to think of your learning a tool that will bring you so much new perspective and deeper wisdom.

      A Course in Miracles consists of a three part volume: text, 365 lessons, and a teacher’s manual. The lessons are designed to be done one a day…and gradually you learn to regulate your perception in wondrous new ways. Learn about it online…there are multiple versions offered…or listen more to the source that Di has provided from Pathways of Light (www.pathwaysoflight.org) Email me if you’d like to read the chapter on the Course from my upcoming book (BarclayBraden@gmail.com)

  4. Allowing. Surrendering. I love these so much Barclay! Thank you so much for sharing this wisdom. And yes! The left hand writing is awesome! Succinct and profound and true. Love and gratitude to you xx

    • Magenta, yes! Allowing and Surrendering. It does my heart such good to receive your response and know that you have found benefit from the nondominant hand writing tool. When I use it, I connect with the voice of Faith. One of my recurring, longtime mantras from her is Trust & Allow. Lately I have found myself repeating a new variation: Trusting and Thanking.
