  1. Hi Linda,

    Nice and easy manner in front of the camera and just the right length at 10 minutes with 2 practicals tips. One thing that has helped me over the years in studying and applying the course is a prayer taken from “The Happy Dream” that I memorized and repeat every time I notice the critic trying to take charge.

    “I desire this holy instant for myself,
    That I may SHARE it with my brother, whom I love.
    It is not possible that I can have it WITHOUT him, nor he without me.
    Yet it is WHOLLY possible for us to SHARE it NOW.
    And so I choose THIS instant as the one to offer to the Holy Spirit, That His blessing may descend on us, and keep us BOTH in peace.”


    I don’t know how many thousands of times I save prayed these words but I can tell you that it does not take long to shift out of critic mode. This is my personal favorite “intervention.”

    Your video reminds me of these words and a practice that I made an intention to become like a knee-jerk reflex when the critic surfaces.

  2. I love this and I’m signed up to do the 40 day course. Tried it once before but my sharp edged toys got in the way. I’m boxing them up today and giving them away

  3. Thank you Linda God is never late and as I was sitting with him this morning the bully was with me I wrote about it then turned on my tablet and he gave me your video Ohhhhh I remember I have done the 40 days and Ohhhhh I am setting the intention today to put down the sharp edged toys and have an INTENTIONAL INTERVENTION!!! AND ALSO A I NEVER SAW THAT PRAYER LOVE IT

  4. hello linda

    thanks for the video. i have been writing my thoughts since monday night book sharing and i woke this morning depressed knowing my devotion was in the gutter to self destructive thoughts. so i began early to change my mind and stop punishing myself. then i got this and felt like i had brothers to join with in healing my mind. i appreciate the timing of the video and i already joined the 40 day group. blessings

    • Anna! Your comment actually made my whole day. I love that you’ve made the decision to be DONE punishing yourself and I always adore the perfect timing thing that happens for each of us all day long. Constant proof we are being guided. Thank you.

  5. What a glorious relief when I stopped attacking myself and simultaneously the ego projection stopped attacking me also. A taste of eternity for sure!

  6. That was great! Thankyou Linda.
    I enjoyed the generalization of the “inner critic” to “sharp edged children’s toys”. This is a perfect summary of the practice of un-doing, as described in the Course.

  7. Dear Linda,
    Thank you for being so kind and sharing this practice. I was “off” Today and the inner critic was the culprit. Now I know what to do. 💙

  8. Linda, my sweet Linda,
    You are so brilliant, perfect timing once again for the message and to spread the word of the 40 Day Transformation.
    You nailed it as we must have the same exact inner critic….not “enough” run rush and run and rush more….do more….ugh it is tiring and sometimes You need to get shaken up and say Hey it is all good……I love you and see you soon I hope.

    • CALICO!!!! I totally adore you too! I would love to catch up some time soon. I have a feeling you’ve been up to some really good stuff!!

  9. Linda your words have been very insightful and have given me food for thought. I am signed up for the 40 Day Program starting in January. Thank You

  10. I listened when I first got email but was feeling ok so deleted it. Its been a rough week and I caught myself in a sad way yesterday and thought of the 49 day program which I did a couple months back, but it was so new to me, I didnt understand alot of it, but certain things were so true Ive decided to try it again.

    • So glad you’re doing the 40 Day again. It’s ok if you don’t understand it all. You’ll get exactly what you need. Please keep going. xoxo

  11. Linda your message was the answer I had been waiting for a situation that has been happening for a few months now. I was listening and – you know who- was in my mind : there is nothing in this message that applies to my situation… bla bla bla ( which is being so harsh with a dearest person of mine and feeling so bad for going so far out of track). At the end I got it: my inner critic was manipulating me to feel guilty and lowering my vibration, sidestepping me of my most valued and hawk washing state of Happines. The sharp edged toy : reacting to a sister that sometimes forgets who she is and my toy so enjoys that I also forget Who we both Are.
    THANK YOU and Blessings !!!

  12. Puts the Course in a nutshell. This will be my 4th time doing the 40 dayer. It’s transformational without a doubt and you’ll look back and wonder how it all happened and CONTINUES happening!

  13. Miss Linda, I just love listening to you and seeing your beautiful shining face.I wanted to tell you about the last video I saw you in and how much it has helped me to respect and value my brothers. It was the one about not seeing errors, about not trying to fix other people. This video on the 2 exercises is a great sequel to the first one I watched on not seeing errors. I drove me through HS to link with these 2 pages, Linda: p. 425 and 431 in workbook. These are so powerful to me and the blessing is your Self, guiding me.
