WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING…
“I’d been coming to CJL for quite a while and hadn’t taken any classes. I finally took Foundations, and it was so awesome! I learned that the process of getting clear on what I want out of life puts me in alignment with Source … At the workshop for the final Foundations class, what kept coming up was that for me to be truly happy, I needed to be part of an organization that had a loving mission, like CJL. That’s my highest calling – not earning money. My soul feels good with that. I can be part of an organization with that mission – be love, share love, spread love. It’s an awesome revelation! Now I make choices from my Oneness consciousness that are in alignment with this vision.” — M.P.
“It is the whole process of classes at CJL (about a year’s worth as of June) and my self-work that got me to where I am today. I realize now that any limitation I see is in my mind; it’s not a reality. Without all that I’ve learned, I wouldn’t have applied for this house; I would have believed that it was out of reach for me, and I would have accepted something less. In the past my thinking caused roadblocks that shut me down, but now I am open to every possibility.” — K.P.
“When I first entered the Center for Joyful Living, I was immediately struck by the upbeat vibe of the greeters. As the service went on, I was impressed by Rev. Kathleen’s inspirational sermon and touched by the warmth extended by the congregation. I decided to jump right into a class, and I was just in time to join Foundations, the prerequisite for many of the other core classes. My decision to take the class was supported not only by the way I was absorbing the Science of Mind teachings but also by the profound discoveries I was making about myself. During one of the classes, Rev. Kathleen made two statements that hit home for me. She said, ‘If you want to see what your beliefs are, then look at what’s happening in your life.’ I was aware that my thoughts were impacting my life, but I had never considered that my beliefs were creating my experiences – many of which I would prefer not to have! Another important statement Rev. Kathleen made was, ‘Worry is a prayer for what you don’t want.’ I realized that my past hurts and disappointments had led me to look at life through eyes of fear rather than of love.” — K.O.
“Taking classes at CJL has helped me to manifest many wonderful things not only in my life but also in the lives of my loved ones. I believe I have taken every class offered here, and in each class something marvelous has come to fruition. After planting the seed of my intention in the Foundations class, I finally sold my home which had been on the market for over two years. After reading Troward in the Roots class, I learned to embrace my capital truth – the Truth of who I AM and to own my self-healing. For seven years, I had been taking over 21 pain pills a day to treat an affliction called RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome). I stopped taking all of the pills! Now I only have minimal symptoms which I know are disappearing as I release the false beliefs that are causing the dis-ease. These classes have allowed me to develop friendships and a level of intimacy with souls I otherwise might never have met – each one a teacher and a blessing.” R.D.
“I am sure that becoming a Science of Mind practitioner is a turning point in my life. It seems scary and I feel resistance, but something in me is telling me to do it. It is something I need to do for myself and for others … Practitioner training is very important to get me to the next level.” — D.S.
“The Self-Mastery class really taught me to dive in and learn more about myself. One of the things that came up was that I had had a fear of men as a child; it was so deep-rooted that it hadn’t even come out in the earlier Foundations class. Even though I had forgiven the men in my life, the fear was still with me, but now I have truly forgiven them and let it all go … The class greatly improved my self-esteem, and Science of Mind principles have really strengthened my faith.” — E.P.
“My life took an entirely different direction several years ago when I asked Rev. Kathleen, ‘Do you think I could be a practitioner?’ She replied, ‘Of course!’ Practitioner training was difficult at times. The first year focused on the continuous process of my growth, clearing out the old stuff that sometimes was hard for me to look at. The second year involved working with other people to help them find and release their false beliefs so they could live joyful, productive lives. During the two years of practitioner training, I definitely had moments of doubt, but I worked through them … Saying ‘yes’ and hanging in there was the beginning of an amazing journey. Expanding beyond my comfort zone is a good thing!” — L.P.
“Several months back my friend talked me into taking the Visioning class. I had no idea what I was doing but I followed the process, and it really helped me to pull myself up and get back on track. A few years ago, when I lost the job I had held for 22 years, I also lost my self-esteem. I felt like I couldn’t do anything right. The class really helped me a lot; I felt like I was loved again … Through the class I realized that I am okay, that I am capable. Before the class I felt like life had stopped; I’d had the wind knocked out of me, but through the visioning process I became convinced that I could go on … In the class I learned that I am not going through struggle by myself. The issues of others might have a different character, but we’re all going through something, and it felt so much better to know I’m not alone. I can do this; I can make it.” — B.M.
