Often students are disappointed when they feel no contact by the Holy Spirit. The course teaches us that Holy Spirit is always speaking to us but we are not listening.  I think that even more so we fail to recognize that Holy Spirit  is “speaking” to us because often it is not a voice.

The course teaches that when we hear the Holy Spirit we feel joy and peace. Ever look at a beautiful sunset and feel  joy or a deep peaceful connection?  This is the Holy Spirit speaking to us. Ever all of a sudden notice a sign or words that seem to give an answer?  The Holy Spirit never criticizes, cajoles, or makes  you feel  bad. If the “message” makes you feel bad most likely it is the ego masquerading with “helpful” words that bring guilt or worry.

The Holy Spirit can even talk to you in dreams.  I recently had a dream where I was one of four teachers split up into four different parts of a room with students at our tables.  I was waiting for the Holy Spirit to come over to my table to begin the instruction. I suddenly realized that I could start the teaching and immediately felt a little guilty for not having done so. The Holy Spirit at the other table immediately said “That’s OK”, assuring me I have done nothing wrong. I felt better and was ready to begin the class. This dream was evidence to me that it was OK to participate in instruction any time. The Holy Spirit is nearby and will be there to help no matter wether I feel ready or not.

As you go to bed and also when you rise have a small conversation  with the Holy Spirit  and ask for help to listen.  You only need the willingness- God always is speaking his Word to you.

Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
