I LOVE ACIM, and have been a student for 20+ years. Simply selecting then reading a random page brings new insight along my path to personal peace.
Many of us are feeling unsettled and afraid for ourselves and loved ones since the leadership shifts in the UK and USA after the 2016 elections. Sometimes it feels like the world has gone insane.
People worldwide are reporting new emotionally triggered ailments such as headaches (fearful thinking), increased back pain (carrying fearful burdens), digestive tract malfunctions (fears of loss of control, unable to digest the outside world's events) and elimination issues (feeling stuck in the flow of life).
As ALWAYS, I've found solace and a release from fear via A Course In Miracles. It's my favorite way to start off a new year!
BUT, in the beginning I found the book difficult to get through, the wording challenging, the patriarchal tone repulsive. Thanks to EFT, I tapped away my ACIM blocks then tapped in the teachings. You can too!

Using EFT with A Course in Miracles Teachings
A Course In Miracles (ACIM) is my favorite spiritual source. While it does not represent a spiritual path for everyone, it has profound meanings for many. This article by Colleen Flanagan will be of particular use for avid ACIM students.
Your EFT Newsletters sometimes contain quotes from the book, A Course In Miracles (ACIM), and I wanted to share how I've used EFT with ACIM. ACIM teachings have changed countless people's lives but many, including me, have found the concepts and wording to be frustrating and difficult to understand.
Two years ago, in your spirit of trying EFT on everything, I began identifying and releasing my blockages to ACIM.
Most noticeably, after clearing my blockages to lesson 77, "I am entitled to miracles," the wondrous miracles flowed into my life in the form of new clients, prosperity at many levels, a new long-term love relationship, deep peace, acceptance and love. Synchronistic events began occurring and still occur daily that keep me grinning in amazement and gratitude.
Below are a few setup statements that released my blocks. I offer them to anyone who may be starting or restarting their yearly ACIM journey, and who wishes to deeply embrace these peaceful, loving, life-changing teachings.
Even though I sometimes have a fear of failure to understand these complex teachings, I release this fear, open my mind and heart to comprehend these lessons that will help me do God's work on Earth via EFT.
Even though I am afraid I will lose myself to these powerful teachings, I choose to believe these lessons will enhance my life for the better and I will never lose "me".
Even though I don't resonate with the idea that God must be male, I remember that this book was written in the 1960's and choose to change the He/Him to Father/Mother/God as I read the text and feel it is appropriate.
Even though I was taught that Jesus was the light of the world and I don't feel worthy to even read lesson 61 "I am the light of the world." I now accept that I am worthy and can enlighten the world about healing via my EFT practice.
Even though I remember the nuns and priests teaching me that I don't deserve to work miracles, I choose to release this old energy pattern and accept that I CAN and WILL work miracles via EFT when Father/Mother/God knows I am ready.
After tapping on the above, my anxiety level jumped to TEN! Old childhood guilt, fear and judgment washed over me as my mind echoed with religious admonitions of "How dare you think this way! … Who do you think you are? … You'll go to hell for those blasphemous beliefs!"
Suddenly I felt like a frightened child in parochial grade school, being reprimanded for my innocent questions and theories. I continued tapping:
Even though they told me I'd go to hell if I believed I could work miracles like the saints and Jesus, I release this fear and believe ACIM teachings are safe and right for me now.
Even though I have all these old fears of a vengeful God and hell and purgatory, I feel safe to release these childhood fears, to live in love and peace, doing God's work via EFT, reading and living the ACIM teachings.
The combination of ACIM and EFT has enriched my life on many levels. I tap in the loving ACIM teachings as I read them each day.
