Do you believe in miracles?

A Course in Miracles defines a miracle as a shift in how we view things, but it has nothing to do with our eyes. It is a shift from visual sight to the inner vision of Christ consciousness. “The opposite of seeing through the body’s eyes is the vision of Christ, which reflects strength rather than weakness, unity rather than separation, and love rather than fear.”

I invite you to join me in the miracle of peace, joy and love that is our natural state and our guaranteed inheritance from God.



Hi everyone,

Just a friendly reminder about my upcoming art event this Saturday! 🙂


Did you know there are five concrete steps you can take to experience more happiness and inner peace? In this longer video, I outline the steps that have helped me grow spiritually and live a happier, more peaceful life.



Hi everyone,
Immersing myself in the meditative process of creating art led me to a deeper exploration of self and spirituality. As I watched my life unfold in ever more amazing ways, I eventually felt guided to share my story in writing in hopes of helping others. Here is an excerpt from The Journey of Spirit Rising.

An Invitation

Hi everyone,
Here is an invitation to my upcoming art event on November 3rd. Hope to see you there!

Hello dear readers,
I have been most grateful for your past support, and am honored that you followed my blog. Although you haven’t heard from me in quite some time, I haven’t been idle! You might be interested to know that, starting Tuesday, August 7th, I will be releasing a series of brief videos entitled Finding Inner Peace. Each video in this series is illustrated with a personal story, similar to my blogs. 
Be sure to follow my Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/paulaspiritrising to receive each of the videos.
I would be delighted to have you share them with your own network, should you be so inclined.
I hope you are well, and I look forward to sharing with you.

It is with profound gratitude for Dr. Wayne Dyer that I dedicate this blog to his memory. He became my first spiritual mentor over thirty years ago when I read his book, Your Erroneous Zones. The entire trajectory of my life shifted because of his words back then, and he has helped keep me headed in the right direction ever since!

One of my favorite stories of his was when he told his mother that his teacher had called him a “scurvy elephant”. When she went to the school to investigate, she was told that what the teacher had actually said (that Wayne overheard) was that he was a “disturbing element”! Even as a young child, he had begun questioning things and found the courage to speak the truth. One of the greatest things he taught me was to always be true to myself – and, more importantly, to know my true self. Now I give presentations titled, Will the Real You Please Stand Up!

Thank you, Dr. Wayne for helping me remember the truth about who I am and for helping me find the courage to be a “scurvy elephant” too. I love you and trust that your teaching will continue to touch us all from the Spirit world. After all, that’s always been your true home.

Let your spirit soar!
