Julie Spira and Marianne Williamson

Julie Spira and Marianne Williamson

What a night of joy, love and inspiration. This past Thursday, I met author and motivational speaker, Marianne Williamson.?

Seventeen years ago, ?I purchased her book, A Return to Love, and since that time have read it at least five times. To this day, this book remains one of my personal favorites in my home library. Both the author, and her book have changed my life in a powerful way and have allowed me to share these experiences to help others find love in their lives.

Of course I was meant to meet Marianne Williamson. Why it took 17 years, I am not sure as we have mutual friends and business acquaintances in common. ?Perhaps I wasn’t ready yet, but when I received an invitation from my friend, Gina Ratliffe to meet Marianne, I jumped at the chance.?

Her teachings have had a profound affect on my life. After her powerful talk, I had the opportunity talk with her personally and thanked her. ?We embraced each other with a loving hug, and she listened as I told her just how much she has meant to me over the years. It was our moment together of authenticity and pure love.

The process from her book, teachings, and her interpretation of The Course in Miracles is simple. You get scared, you go into fear mode. To get out of fear mode, you return to love mode. The opposite of love isn’t hate?it’s fear. It’s simple, practical, ?spiritual, and we all need to be reminded of it on a regular basis. This goes for love relationships, work relationships, and friendships.

Some of the things Marianne Williamson shared with us included:

  • “There’s a world of fear and a world of love.”
  • “We are here to love one another.”
  • “Don’t take yesterday’s stress and fear into the day.”
  • “The universe has eyes. You get away with nothing.”

So my dating advice to all of you, whether you are cyberdating or are already in a romantic relationship, is to buy A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles
and practice these simple and powerful techniques. You’ll be surprised at the amount of joy you will receive in return.
