This week’s blog is from me – Lisa Natoli – and I share three stories in a 10-minute video, all three stories are designed to inspire you to simply begin doing things in a new way so that LIFE begins to flow through you.
ACIM 365Lisa Natoli takes you through all 365 lessons of A Course in Miracles with her commentary via a daily audio. Click here for more information.
These 3 stories are:
- A guy named Arthur who was totally paralyzed, he couldn’t walk and was told he would never walk again. His case was so hopeless that no one would work with him … until finally one day one guy said YES, I’ll help you. Arthur made some changes and now he’s not only walking, but running.
- The story of my husband Bill Free falling down some wet slippery stairs in Portugal – the night before we began walking the Camino de Santiago from Portugal to Spain. I talk about how I saw Bill’s leg contorted in the most not-normal position, behind his body, and what Bill did to begin walking just two days later.
- The story of my husband Bill’s sister’s husband Brad. 40 years ago, while bull riding, Brad’s arm was pulled out of the socket and was only hanging on by a thread. The doctors (according to Brad) wanted “to saw the arm off and throw it in the trash”. Brad begged them to please just sew it back on. He was told the arm would never work. He didn’t care. He just wanted the arm. So they sewed it back on and it was completely lifeless. And a little while later, Brad got an idea …. and his arm was restored.
The common theme in all these three stories is: I CAN DO THIS. They weren’t praying for a miracle. They weren’t waiting for a healing. They were cooperating and collaborating with the energy within that moves mountains.
So often people are waiting for a miracle, asking God to heal them or asking other people to pray for them. You probably have noticed that not much changes when you approach life in this way. I share these 3 stories to inspire you to connect with the strength and power that is within you.
You got this.
You don’t need to pray to God to heal you. You are already whole and perfect. If you are going to pray to God to heal you, let your prayer be to remember that YOU CAN DO THIS.
Pray to take action. Pray to stop waiting around. Pray to know the Truth, and the Truth will you free. In you is LIFE. And when you connect with this life – which is what you are – energy begins to move. It heals. It restores. It renews.
If you are ready to change your life, this week’s video is for you.
You have all the answers already within you. You are constantly being told by that “still small voice within” what you can do for healing. Most people I talk with have already received inner instruction about changes they can make, but most are not taking action.
Now your job is to simply show up, “every damn day”, and do the work. Follow your inner guidance which has been instructing you already about what to do.
Stop waiting for a miracle. Make a commitment to do the work and make some changes.
One of the best ways I know for transformation is to do A Course in Miracles. Commit to reading the Text, and to doing the workbook lessons – it takes one year – 365 days. Read the Manual for Teachers.
It’s a one-year training program and my suggestion is to not take a single day off. Commit to it and do it.
All you need to say is: I CAN DO THIS.
An “I can do this” attitude moves mountains. There is no gray area. No excuses. No saying “I’ll try”. No thinking “I can’t do it.” No thinking “maybe.”

You have one thought and one thought only: I CAN DO THIS.
I CAN DO THIS is how healing is accomplished. You stop looking outside yourself. You stop waiting for “God to heal you. You realize the power and the light and the strength within you that heals. And you begin working with it.
Today’s the day you can begin moving in that direction.
