Turn the Other Cheek … and Grow!

Jesus instructs us in Matthew 5:38-41 to avoid retaliation when we perceive that we have been wronged. But why? What lessons can we learn about God’s guidance when we have been hurt? How can we use the Law of Co-Creation and Universe Responding to avoid the “I WANT to get even” reaction and to embrace the “I AM listening to the messages of guidance” approach? Please join us as we discuss how to really pay attention to what is for us in another’s disturbing behavior toward us.

Evolution vs. Stagnation: Why Being Open and Receptive Is Important to Co-Creation

Never changing, never growing and never learning may seem to be a safe and secure approach to life. The “steadiness” of having a viewpoint and holding firm to it no matter what happens may be regarded by some as a virtue. But this is not the approach we suggest in the Universe Responding Model. When we shut down our willingness to reconsider or to evolve our thoughts and our actions, we are saying to our Higher Power that we are not interested in listening to any messages of guidance, which are different from our beliefs and opinions. With this attitude, we may soon find we are drowning in a pool of stagnation rather than joyously swimming in the clear, fulfilling stream of a co-created life.

Proving the Existence of God

As a follow-up to this past week’s program, we ask the question: How can we prove the existence of God? It sounds like a tall order, doesn’t it? But in reality, proving the existence of God in our lives is very easy! And once we understand the logic of how we gather this evidence, we will be even more convinced that God is real, that a relationship with the Higher Power of our Understanding is essential, and that a co-created life is the only way to live!

Increasing Love by Decreasing Fear

Are we afraid to love? Is commitment to a person, a community, or even to a Higher Power a scary idea? How can we tell when our desire to love or to be loved has become adversely affected by an “I WANT” approach, rather than through the Truth found in the “I AM”? In this episode, we explore how fear—a “create on our own” impulse—can destroy love and cause us to question our ability to be loved. But we will also share solutions inspired by The Law of Co-Creation to kick fear out of our consciousness once and for all and make plenty of room for love for ourselves, for others, and for God.

Prejudice and Discrimination—HUGE Blockages to Co-Creation

Prejudice and discrimination are two concepts that can absolutely destroy our ability to co-create. Not only is Oneness and Interconnectedness with others and with God severely damaged, but these distorted views of and actions toward others encourage destructive thoughts, block our abilities to hear messages of guidance, stifle opportunities to act harmoniously, and remove much of the gratitude that gives meaning to life. Our program examines how we can combat these feelings and impulses in ourselves and how we can each increase our contribution to the evolution of a just and fair society—a society in which co-creation can thrive!

Adult Bullying

Bullying is not an activity just reserved for children. Adults can be both bullies and the victims of bullying. Unlike children, adults who find themselves as victims receive much less sympathy, are accused of being “thin-skinned,” and are faced with the expectation that they should “man-up” and take whatever comes. There is nothing about these aggressive actions or the responses they invoke that is co-created! In this program, we lovingly examine why this happens and suggest how both the bully and the victim can find the courage and trust to “God-up” and replace all these “create on your own” behaviors with co-created ones. Please keep in mind that this program is not a substitute for professional counseling or other assistance.

The Last "Universe Responding" Program … for a While

During the three years that this program has been aired, Universe Responding has evolved, Valleri has evolved, and you have evolved. As the Universe Responding Spiritual Model For Life has more clearly come into focus as the engine of the Law of Co-Creation, we have found limitless ways to use these concepts to help us achieve our “cocreated best.” As Valleri’s path of growth is leading her to additional ways to apply the Universe Responding concept, this will be the final Universe Responding program for a time. During this episode, she will highlight some of the important points she has discussed in prior broadcasts and, most important, will take this time to express gratitude and love to all her loyal listeners and to Unity Online Radio. We invite you to continue to enjoy the 140 episodes we’ve recorded as they will continue to be available for free download on our Universe Responding host page.

Is All This for Real?

Program after program, we’ve shared with you how the Law of Co-Creation and the Universe Responding Spiritual Model For Life will give you what you need to be your “co-created best” in all things. But is all this for real? Can I really trust that the Higher Power of My Understanding will co-create with me if I faithfully follow this formula and apply it consistently? The answer is yes, yes, YES! Think of today’s program as a way to neutralize the unhealthy brainwashing we hear from all the naysayers and doubters (even when it is us who do it to ourselves). It’s designed to be one you will want to download and keep; one to be listened to over and over again; and one that will keep us on track when we start to slip off.

Do You Hear What I Hear?

What if the guidance I hear and the guidance you hear about the same topic seems to send us in different directions? If our lives are intertwined and my actions affect your actions (and vice versa), how do we reconcile these messages? Maybe we don’t need to reconcile them at all; instead, one of us may be hearing our guidance through the wrong filter—the one that allows a little of the I WANT to taint it. Join us as we explore what happens when God’s messages of guidance appear to be pulling us in different directions.
