Do you feel deserving of the good that is coming into your life? Are you able to receive all that God wants to give you?  So many women feel unworthy/undeserving to receive and because of this limiting belief, they actually block the flow of good coming into their lives. You may ask yourself, why would I do that?  For many, it is an unconscious belief and you may not be aware it is there.  Once the belief is brought to the light, you can change it and God can transform it.

On January 1, I received a message from God. “I have set before you an open door which no one is able to shut.”  One of my intentions for the year was to travel. And I did! I gave a retreat on a cruise ship to Bermuda, visited my brother in New Jersey, visited a friend in New Hampshire, visited my family in Florida and have a trip planned to Hawaii next month.  Truly, God opened the doors and provided the money each step of the way. For this, I am grateful.

I have been on the spiritual path for over 35 years and have experienced powerful healings and transformation. God continues to reveal the limiting beliefs that are unconscious that block the flow of divine supply.

I recently visited my son and grandchildren in Florida. I started to journal while on the plane and was surprised when the feelings of anxiety and guilt surfaced.  This is what came to the light when I dialogued with God.  

Pat: I am feeling anxious and guilty God, what is this all about? I thought I was done with guilt.  I feel guilty leaving my business and I am scared. I am sorry for not trusting you. I know I am doing the best I can to change. Is it worthiness issues that are coming up?

God: You know what I say about guilt and what you teach others.

Pat: Yes, I do.  So why am I feeling guilty and where is this coming from?

God: All your life, you have thought you had to work hard, achieve, do more, be more and it’s time to shift, really shift and ALLOW me to do the work.

Pat: What do you mean God? How do I shift this? I want so much for my business to be successful so I can help others to heal and transform like I have.  

God: I know and I want this for you to. Remember, I called you to this ministry and it is your mission to help others to heal their fear and believe in themselves.  You heard my voice and you said, yes. Remember the “blouse story” and how I provided the $10 miraculously and how that story has blessed so many people.

Pat: Yes, God I remember. I get mixed up sometimes with how much money I am making as a measure for my success and worthiness.

God: I know and so do many other women and that is why they feel so bad about themselves and have a hard time receiving the good that I want to give them.  They too equate their job, what they do with who they really are, their essence and the spark of the divine they are.

Pat: Do I need to just let go, surrender, trust you are working in my life and love myself into wholeness and health?  Can I believe this trip is a gift from you and there is no need to feel guilty?  I don’t usually feel guilty and I think I am “shoulding” on myself. Please help me God.

God: I am helping you. You must go in and change your thinking, like changing the channel of the TV when you don’t like something. You are in control of your thoughts and it’s up to you to change them. I cannot do that for you.

Pat: What shall I change them to? “I deserve to go away, rest, be, spend time with my family. I am following you God. I trust myself and you God that you opened the door.  I have everything I need in this moment and you are providing. Miracles are coming to me right now.  I open my heart to receive all that you have for me. I am worthy and deserving to receive.”

God: I see your heart Pat and I know how you want to do my will and serve me. I want you to expect a powerful, peaceful week of surprises. Just keep trusting yourself and your intuition. I am blessing you in this moment. You are my beloved whom I am well pleased.

Pat: Thank you God. I stand tall in this truth of who I am and who you are. I now believe I am worthy and deserving to receive.

After this prayer and dialogue with God and before getting off the plane, something had truly shifted and I felt renewed, changed and free.  I expected miracles and was ready to receive and felt deserving.  

What happened during the week was truly amazing. I received so many gifts and miracles. In fact, the week was so powerful that my next book has been born. Whooo…..

I read this in prayer this morning. “The only reason any person does not have the life they want is that somewhere in the back of their mind – they don’t believe they deserve it. They don’t believe they are worthy – which is why they will not take responsibility for making it happen”


“I open my heart to receive. I am worthy, I am deserving because of who I am, not what I do.  I am a spark of the divine. It is my inheritance to receive only good and abundance. I open my heart and allow God to come to me today.”


  1. Pat,

    I think that Blog entry was one of your best. I know how many women struggle with defining themselves by how much they do and achieve ( masculine expressions of energy) and yet we need to value ourselves for who we are and the love and grace we naturally radiate and use to help others, when just let ourselves BE and allow The Divine to flow to us and through us. Sharing your dialogue with God was a great way to show women HOW to do this, and as always, I appreciate your authenticity and majesty!
    Love, HRH!!
