My Cup Runneth Over
Michael! I wanted you to know that I have gained a great deal from our work in New Jersey. One of the main points that you emphasized was that we students need to integrate the information that you shared with us. I’m happy to report that on many levels I have been integrating and I have already begun to feel “lighter!” One thing in particular is that you helped me release the old relationship I had with my dad. That was so incredibly powerful for me, but I didn’t realize just how powerful it was until I had to see him again. In the past, when I knew that I had to see him, I would get stressed and feel sick to my stomach. But yesterday before I saw him I was relaxed, rather than nauseous, and when he tried to “push my buttons” throughout the day, he didn’t get to me at all-I didn’t feel any “charge” from his words, and I was able to just smile at him. That was so awesome! And the best part is, that with the prayer/meditation you taught me, my connection to God is far greater and I’ve been manifesting things that I desire more quickly. Lately I’ve been feeling like I am on the precipice of something wondrous, even though I’m not quite there, yet. One thing that I do know for certain is that the work we did and all that I have learned from you so far is part of what is helping me get to my Grand Opening. Over the last 24 years, I’ve studied many spiritual traditions and practices, and have been privileged to learn from many Masters on my journey. I’ve been Blessed to be in the presence of amazing and holy Beings. I want you to know that I haven’t met a Master in a long time whose Spirit and Energy and Wisdom and Love resonates within me in the way that you do, Michael. I knew that I was being called to seek you out, and I am so happy that I listened to my inner guidance. I feel energized, inspired, excited, motivated, and humbled by all that I have received from you in such a short time. Michael. You are not only a Master, but a true Spiritual Luminary. Thank You for sharing your wisdom and Love in such a Beautiful and profound way. My cup runneth over as tears trickled down my cheeks.
Please tell Michael that the last newsletter article is/was absolutely inspired and so timely! The article on TRUST was PROFOUND thank you!
Michael was right on!
Many years ago I attended one of Michael’s presentations at Unity Church on Maui. He asked us to rate the areas of our life on a scale of 1-10, ten being fantastic. Relationship, health, career, finance, etc. After everyone did the work he asked if anyone had a score of three or less in any category. He went on to say that if one had a low score in relationship, without the proper amount of work and correct application of mind, chances were that in five years it would most likely be the same (or worse)…so one might as well stop suffering and complaining and get out now. I hated what he said. But Michael was right on. I didn’t leave my three or lower rated relationship for an additional six years, choosing instead to apply myself to my spiritual practice. I am very glad I did, however even with all the practice and work, my 27 year marriage didn’t work out. And the thing was…both Michael and myself saw it coming. So…points to take into consideration: TRUST your intuition however weak it may be. LOVE and forgive the one you’re with even though it’s painful. And practice developing confidence, love, and trust in yourself above all. In these ways all your hurts and anger will heal faster, you will have no regrets, and you will continue to grow in spirit and light for the rest of your days.
Gratitude from Santa Fe
I am taking this opportunity to write to you to tell you that I was lucky to be in Santa Fe when you gave two lectures at Unity. I want to thank you for helping me understand more the purpose of my life. Also, I am so new to A Course in Miracles (ACIM) and your lecture on “Applying the Principles of ACIM” helped me so much to understand what ACIM is all about and I will be more eager now to study the material. Lastly, but the most important one of all is to thank you for the many good things you said to me when I had the Private Session with you. I am so glad I met you.
The Miracles CD is Miraculous
I was having a little difficulty understanding ACIM. So, I closed the book and ordered MM first CD on ACIM. It is an awesome CD and is helping me so much. Thank you, Michael. I have now ordered the second CD and have once again opened the book…starting with lesson one!
Hi Michael! I attended your sacred sexuality lecture with my partner last night. Let me start by saying thank you for creating yourself to be who you are today. Your energy is very inspiring, refreshing, and joyful. I was in a very low-energy space…aching neck and back and heaviness of my present relationship. We were both deeply impressed and discussed some of the things that came up for us, and your seminar was actually very valuable in helping me vocalize what was in my heart. By the time we retired for bed, we had agreed on a separation from the relationship but then beautifully proceeded to make love for hours. It was incredibly healing. I think it was a kind of expression to each other that everything that happened between us was a success and that we are truly grateful. Of course there are many elements to this ending that are not easy and beautiful, and so, I will pursue a private session with you to help me with this transition and prepare for a new beginning. Thanks again for your wonderful spirit.
Special Thanks to All at Grail
Dear Michael, Thank you and all your helpers for the work you do in sharing the message of love, hope and healing in the Christ light which we all embody and our working with our ascended masters, guides, and angels to manifest Paradise on Earth. I am grateful to read your words of truth and encouragement in each of your publications and I wanted to let you know how your messages have touched me and continually remind me that I am part of a perfect plan for good.
Thanks For The Magic!
Michael: I got home Sunday afternoon and started to read a book that has daily devotions about love, all kinds. The part I opened to read: From time to time into each of our lives there steps a magical person. Out of nowhere, seemingly for no reason, a human being appears whose romance with life is so beautiful and rare, so whimsical and holy that, without any effort at all, he enchants us with his extraordinary gift for living. Such people are life’s magicians, purveyors of joy, imaginers of the uncommon. They stir our pots: they ruffle our feathers. They paste twinkling stars on the dark sky of life’s ordinariness. Living by magic, they let us recapture the magic in ourselves. Knowing that love is the only real magic there is, they invite us again–with their words, with their ways, with their dreams, with their faith-to believe in the magical power of love. Today let your heart be ribboned with thanks for the person whose magic has beautifully altered your life. Thanks, Michael, for ruffling my feathers, pasting stars on my sky and for being a magical person.
Amazing and Generous
There are many teachers who have profound teachings but Michael is the one who walks his talk. He is really amazing. He is so generous…it makes me cry.
Thank You for praying with me
Dearest Michael: My home and my town of Cascade, Colorado survived the Waldo Canyon fire. Our mountain side is badly burned, and how this town is still standing is nothing short of a miracle. The fire came within 100 yards of my home. I’ve always known I was on sacred ground, and we were, indeed, protected during this terrorizing time. Thank you, Michael, for taking the time to visit and pray with me during this event. I was so frightened and stunned but you were able to guide me toward peace and grace when everything around me was literally in flames. I received emails, texts, and phone calls during this time from so many folks who I met at your healing workshop in April. I am so grateful. I walk through my home touching my walls, I touch my trees, I touch my dirt and weep with joy and disbelief.
Hey Miguel! I’ve recently been recalling when I first saw you in Florida. My life has never been the same, thank you God! In you, for the very first time, I became aware of God’s presence in a brother; since then, everyone I come in contact shows up with the God-light. I have experienced many challenges in this last year and although the lessons have at times been painful, as soon as I embrace them, love on them and let them go, I begin to refill and heal with the peace I have for so long searched to find. Together with your love, support, teachings and healings, I am growing at such a fast and furious speed. Yet the biggest gift you give me is the opportunity to see myself rightly in you, my mirror. Thank you for the awakening, for your unconditional love and kindness and for giving me a spiritual family that I look so forward to sharing my life with.
The Real Deal
Hi Michael! My name is Michelle. I was given your name by a friend who came to me for guidance. She had a private session with me yesterday. As soon as she mentioned your name, I immediately saw Archangel Michael, who then told me you were “the real deal” and showed me your face. Later, my friend gave me your website info and when I visited your site, I saw the same image Archangel Michael had shown me.
Fabulous newsletter! This hits the mark! I will share: I suffered from complacency for quite a few years. It kills us–slowly from the inside out.
Michael, I don’t have the words to tell you how deeply grateful I am for you and to you, but I do trust that you know, that you feel it, and that you see it. I am grateful not only for the difference you’ve made in my life, but because you’ve helped me to accept being my true self. You have also made a difference in the lives of so many people whom I care for and love. Thank you, Dear One, for being open to God’s guidance. Thank you for providing a safe place for people to heal. Thank you for your integrity, for your energy, for your laughter, and for your generous heart!
When I reflect and count my blessings, it brings to mind much gratitude for the opportunities to study Christ consciousness and participate in Michael’s sacred sites tours. Thank you Michael for all you do to bring more love, light, and joy into the lives of others!
Dear Michael: Although a little time has passed, I want to thank you for the beautiful and powerful message you shared with us at Unity Church. I have known for years that the Christ was the real part of me but had never heard it expressed the way you did with such certainty. You are a wonderful channel of Light and look forward to seeing you again.
Personal Thank You
It is a pleasure reading your periodic newsletters, and I just want to extend a personal “thank you” for your work in reaching out to others and helping us to understand spirituality. I’ve attended a couple of your workshops, and look forward to seeing you again in the NE region. Please find enclosed a donation. It’s an honor to contribute to your work, and I’ll keep you in my prayers.
Dear Mr. Mirdad: At the suggestion of my Reiki Master I recently purchased your book YOU’RE NOT GOING . . . after a rough few months and continued healing, I thought I was out of my mind. I have experienced fear unlike anything I’ve ever known and have ended up in the hospital. After reading your book, which I now keep in my purse, I feel normal again. I feel safe and able to better understand my journey.
I’ve Seen it All!
Dear Michael, I have attended many authors’ presentations and workshops over the past few years, and yet, even so, this was the ONLY time I have felt strongly compelled to have a Private Session with any author or teacher. In your case, I had an almost irresistible urge that simply felt like an inner voice was directing that this was the man I finally should approach. I am sharing this simply to let you know that I will not forget this feeling. I also share this as a way of saying a heartfelt “THANK YOU” for the deep impression that your words made within me at your lecture on Sunday evening. You spoke with an eloquent clarity that I have rarely experienced, and I feel truly blessed to have been in your presence for that hour-and-a-half. Please know that my prayers of thankfulness accompany you as you leave the “Windy City” and resume your busy schedule.
I Remember You
Hello Michael! You may not remember me but I certainly remember you. I attended a large expo many years ago where you were a keynote speaker. After the event was over, you and several other speakers were dining in the lounge where my husband and newborn baby were eating. I was so embarrassed because my baby kept crying and felt we were interrupting the privacy of these awe-inspiring spiritual leaders. Next thing I knew, you were walking towards us, which I assumed was to ask us to keep our baby quiet. Instead, you kindly asked if you could hold our baby. I watched in amazement, as she grew quiet. Then you suggested that my husband and I join the table of speakers, which was such a gift. Then you sat over in the corner rocking my baby to sleep and remained with her afterward for an hour. This may sound like an odd testimonial, since it’s not about a session or workshop, But it is still an important example of a teacher who “walks his talk” in a profound, yet, simple demonstration. All these years later, I still feel moved. Now that’s real healing!
My Gratitude for Many Gifts
Over the years, I have heard Michael Mirdad speak several times at Unity churches. Always, I found his talks to be practical and humorous. He made A Course In Miracles not only something I could understand, but concepts I could live by. His messages struck a deeper chord and something prompted me to call for a private session. Several hours later I was meeting with this relaxed, warm man who would become my teacher, healer, and friend. This session brought me a great distance in self-awareness, growth and healing. But besides a soul-level healing, Michael taught me to replace the pain with Light and Love. Next I chose to attend one of Michael’s 5-day Healing Workshops at his retreat. I learned a multitude of healing modalities plus received more personal healing. During the workshop, I was helping with a demonstration, when Michael’s intuition and healing skills brought up long-buried pain. I was overcome with terror from a 40-year-old episode and could no longer deny childhood trauma that was affecting my life today. I have discovered from working with him, that Michael receives truths directly from a greater Source. It was with this innovative, sometimes brutally honest insight that my partner and I, separately and as a couple, have been able to work through and heal wounds on an emotional and sometimes physical level. This has now taught me how to more fully engage with my partner and with others.
Exciting New Journey Inspired
I think what really inspired me to write this testimonial was the fact that I have been going to Unity in Mesa for nearly 10 years but now our minister has had some serious health issues and had to retire and is now in Hospice. When I heard this, I just started sobbing in church. It affected me and of course most of the others who were there and I just started sobbing. There was absolutely no religion in my childhood home. I think it was when I started reading “A Course in Miracles” and “A Return to Love” that my life totally changed–for ever. Then, I started attending Unity of Mesa and have been going ever since. From time to time Unity would have guest speakers–some inspired me and some did not. When Michael Mirdad came to Unity as a guest speaker, my life again was changed and I was so inspired and affected that I have never been the same. I’m sure so many others felt the same way. Of course I purchased several of his books and felt that I was home.
Dear Michael Mirdad and Staff: Thank you so much for sending me your newsletter; I appreciate it greatly. It is wonderful and I enjoyed so much reading it. In a nutshell, I would like to say to Michael Mirdad that by listening to him in Santa Fe, he healed me of an emotional attachment I have had for over two years by showing me the way to understand “boundaries.” Also, while Michael was lecturing, he unknowingly performed a huge healing on me. My eyes opened up on my situation and I let go seemingly in an instant. Michael enabled me to “see the Light” and understand that a change of direction was absolutely necessary. I am greatly indebted to him and would like to send a donation as a token of my gratitude. I have NO DOUBT that Michael is a very exceptional healer who can work at all levels even when one has not paid for your services. I greatly admire him for his integrity and fabulous service to our brothers and sisters on this plane. I can only say, “please keep up the fantastic work” that you do as you anchor the Light for all of us. You are a living treasure and undoubtedly an enlightened Ascended Master!
A Miracle for a Sports Fan
Aloha Michael! You really made my day special with your “miracle” demonstration at your “miracle” workshop. You surprised me by giving me an autographed football signed by my favorite player, Lofa Tatupu. I appreciate you thinking of me as you decided to gift me this official NFL football, knowing that it would mean so much. Go Seahawks!
A Statement of Integrity
Dearest Michael, I do not know if you know how much your guidance has meant to me over the years. You have always been there for me as a spiritual guide, but also a Brother. Many claim to be healers but have hidden agendas, yet you have never tainted or betrayed our friendship or my trust. Instead you have healed years of distrust and pain by being my constant source of friendship and Divine Love & support.

I Get it!
Dear Michael: I’ve begun reading your book, Sacred Sexuality, and things are getting a lot clearer as to what has been transforming inside of me. Weeks prior to our session I had been anticipating that something was happening but had no clue what it was. I had a vague sense that I wanted to go deeper into my spiritual practice but wasn’t sure how to get there. Now, a miracle later, I remain stunned by the magnitude and depth of your teachings and look forward to seeing you again when you return to my area.
Love & Kindness
Thanks so very much for sending my son your GREAT BOOK today. My son was so thrilled. He is showing everyone…To do this for a stranger, let alone a disabled kid…speaks volumes to what great people you are. It’s so appreciated. My son says: LOVE, DUSTIN. Thanks again for your kindness…and may your kindness come right back at you tenfold.
Steve (for Dustin)
No Longer Wanting to Be Special
Dear Michael: I just read your article, “Do You Really Want to be Special?” and this is BY FAR THE BEST ARTICLE I HAVE EVER READ!!! Thank you for writing it. I have sent it to many people. It has opened my eyes to so many things on the ego and how Un-important it really is to feel “special”!!!
Aloha Michael! Thank you for the work you do and for the love and light you give. Your teachings have been so profound for me. The goddess within me has been illuminated by the information in your books and the countless things you taught me while you were here in Honolulu. I loved the stories you told, the teachings on Sacred Sexuality, the breathing exercises, and the teachings on balancing all aspects of our life and being—mental, spiritual, physical, and emotional. Now, I look forward to each day as a miracle!
Finding an Oasis
Michael, I just have to write and say thank you…for everything: honoring your truth, presenting what you know/live, being a living example of where I want to be in my walk, etc. As I read your articles on the website, I’m so excited to find someone talking about exactly EXACTLY what is my experience, “A cool drink in a hot desert” is the only way I can describe it. Thank you.
Propelling Me Forward
Dear Michael: I am truly thankful to you for the very insightful and excellent workshops in Dallas and the very helpful private session I had with you. You are an amazing teacher/healer/metaphysician who beautifully shares the message of Truth, Light, Love and Healing. Michael, you have been a powerful, inspirational catalyst speaking to my soul and propelling me forward on my journey. My spiritual & healing process is accelerating…I’m half way through your “Seven Initiations” book and listening again to your Course in Miracles CD and now feel more at peace. The process continues…
Michael, I am both a recent and older student/client of yours and I truly enjoyed the message of your last e-newsletter about GREED. I am a counselor/intuitive healer who has also followed a path of minimal fees, etc… I hear what you are referring to and I am saddened to know it is true. I send this also to thank you for a more recent healing session with you. I asked you Michael, “Why do you NOT charge more for your sessions,” and your answer was quite beautiful. I felt validated that the 20 years of service I’ve provided for a minimal fee was worth every ounce of sacrifice to hear those words from someone as spiritually elevated as you. It was a clear message of my own truth, and made me feel more valued with my chosen path than ever before. I anxiously await your next visit. I have also referred many of my clients to you for the next time you are here, and we all look forward to it with anticipation. I have been blessed by your true gift, and my life has never been better. You are a true spiritual teacher, and it is appreciated beyond belief.
Changed my Life
Great newsletter. I thank God for you and how your work has forever changed my life. Now hope to share these changes with our church board within the next few days.
I’m Ready To Live
Dearest Michael, I’m still amazed at how healthy my life has become. Without dieting, without obsessing, and without a list of rules to judge myself by, I continue to get more and more healthy, including the effortless dropping of unneeded weight. It is a miracle. Indeed, I have made many changes in my life since I met you. I am so very grateful for your incredible workshops and the personal healings. When we met I was challenging the world to love me as I was. But you led me to a place where deep healing happens. This depth of healing has continued in my life, with your help, and I reap the benefits daily and in all areas. I feel healthy, vibrant, strong, powerful, attractive and sexy! I am finally ready to do what I came here to do.
Another great and useful newsletter…mahalo, Michael. Some thoughts:1) I have been seeing the “mental instability” manifest in subtle ways as well. 2) Having just watched my son and his friends go through adolescence, I can’t help but compare it to what we’re going through globally. They were awkward, loud, unsure of themselves and physically strange. And that’s what it feels like now, in this world. Gawky, loud, argumentative and confusion, just waiting for the light of maturity. 3) Endings, releasing, making room for the new – I really appreciate the fact that you walk like you talk. Sharing the examples of how you are doing exactly that is pretty inspiring. Helps me want to do the same! Of course I miss your visits to Maui and I miss the workshops, but I will eventually make it back that way – to a workshop or a Lightworkers Conference or something. I keep in touch with some friends from the workshops and we often speak fondly of you and the work you do. I guess the main comment I want to make is to thank you again for all that you do. You rock. And, by the way, A good friend of mine recently moved to Sedona and has been attending Unity there. He sends me emails telling me what great talks you give and I just laugh. Like, uh, yeah…that’s what I’ve been trying to tell him! lol
A Master Healer
Dear Micheal: I am writing this to extend my deepest gratitude for your work. As a recipient of past healing it has been so insightful to see you work. You are a Master healer. This is why I chose you as my teacher. This is why I continue to attend Unity of Sedona. I have known from my first meeting with you the depth of the impact you bring to those willing to engage and participate in the reception of the calling out of the frozen, disassociated thought forms that hide behind the experiences of trauma. After your recent advanced healing workshop at Unity, I am deeply changed and ask that you continue to teach and share your experience, wisdom, and mastery with this group of souls who are so dedicated to healing others at the deepest levels and have come to you for training. In this particular workshop, I saw a woman, freed from trauma, and reborn into integrity, right in front of a group of people who were also being changed at depth on so many levels. I am moved and inspired by your work and continue to study all that you share with us. So please continue to assist in the development of many more Master Healers. It is truly what our world is calling forth and is clearly your forte!
Learning on All Levels
Dear Michael: I am wishing to express gratitude for your articles and have been working on studying your book Sacred Sexuality in my spare time. The world needs this information very much, far too long have we been distorted verses natural, thank you for standing up. Your books and articles are very inspirational and motivating; in all honesty I keep your book on The Seven Initiations…with me at all times. It has so assisted with those moments of disorientation. The hardest part has been seeing those I thought to be in alignment with the Divine and finding that sometimes they are not. This saddens my heart. It is as if they sensed the change within me and I so became an out-cast and the focus of their hate. But sending them only love is the key. Recently I was blessed with employment, and when I receive my first paycheck, I would like to donate to your Avalon Retreat center. You have helped me and I would like to do the same in return.
Becoming a Better Healer
Michael, I want to thank you for the person that you are. With the love in your heart, your wisdom, and your light you have helped me to open myself up to “more” light and also my heart center. I would like to tell you that I find that my work has changed a bit. I am now moving more slowly into my approach to the body. I feel my energy shifting in all regards and that I am more open to spirit and in connecting with the person on my healing table. In the last week, two people have had great shifts and releasing. They both actually had emotional releases even after my session with them, crying hysterically. Well I wanted to run back in the room and comfort them, but I just felt that it was best to let them have that time for themselves. Of course, I wasn’t far away and they knew that. I am becoming clearer and clearer. I help others to heal, and much of what they need to heal is what I have already experienced or am experiencing. I just want to say again, Thank You for Who You Are…
Dear Michael: Thank you for the wonderful message in your most recent e-newsletter. It really resonates with me. I recently was criticized by a new friend for living “in a bubble”. In other words, I try to surround myself with spirit and not with what is negative in the all too available news of this world, which seems to drain the very essence of spirit out of me. Thank you so much for knowing about complacency and for elaborating on it’s many faces. Reading your message made me feel so much less alone on my path, though surrounded by friends and family who don’t support this. I have found over the past 27 years that my so-called living in a bubble, allows me to know less about what is going on out there in the world but more about what is going on within me and how to become healthier in body and soul. Thank you for sharing the truth.
Visions From Christ Workshop
Michael, Your workshop on Christ Consciousness was amazing and triggered an inner longing for Home–in my heart. In fact I was a bit overwhelmed by the number of visions and memories the workshop brought up. Thank you for shining your light so beautifully and inspiring me on my path. In gratitude!
Gifts Should Be Shared
Dear Michael: I would like to share a few comments about your gifts. You have this gift . . . a very special gift you see. I don’t know if everyone can perceive it right away, as it is often wrapped in a humble appearance, it isn’t dripping in precious metals or stones, nor does it involve any clever slights of hand. It doesn’t force itself upon you or declare itself present . . . no it is simple and it is subtle. It isn’t flashy or extravagant; it isn’t gratuitous, but just simply beautiful. This doesn’t feel like a mere gift of this world but rather a gift of Spirit. Thank you, Michael, for this gift. Thank you for offering it to my partner and me. May every possible blessing shower your head for your unshakable commitment to God and His Voice. I am so often overcome by my gratitude for your capacity to see me and to channel my words when I have lost them.
Dear Michael: Just a quick note to wish your New Year brings you all the blessings your heart desires! I read your latest book, “You’re Not Going Crazy . . . ” and now I understand what I’ve been going through! As I reflect on the past year, I have changed so much, my beliefs, so many limitations are gone, God got bigger for me! And among my many blessings from the past year, I am grateful for meeting you and experiencing your work.
My Own Initiations
I had a private session and saw you at Unity Church in Orlando. Right after our session, I had to leave for Italy, because my mother was suddenly terminally ill with cancer. She died on the 17th. Before she passed, I was doing some healing work on her and I saw a man, whom I believed to be Jesus, had worked on her heart, and from that I understood she was receiving a spiritual healing. Also, before I left for Italy I read your book, “The Seven Initiations of the Spiritual Path,” and I loved it! I had started reading it a second time, to digest it more, and so decided to put it in my suitcase. I am so glad I did! As I went to the mourning of losing my mom, it helped me to put everything into prospective and understand what initiation I was going through. Thank you for your work on the book! It is definitely one of those books that I have to keep reading, as with every experience I am learning something new about myself.
Witnessing Love & Truth
Hi Michael, I just wanted to thank you for your talk on Monday night. It was incredible. I resonated with so much of what you talked about. It was as if you had read my mind and heart. It felt so good to hear you speak, with such passion, about what I have passion about. The way you word things really makes sense to me. What a gift you are to me and the world. Thank you. I don’t know if I have ever really heard any body say things the way I really think about them. You do. Over and over again I heard the message of Love. From every angle I heard Love. You are love and I feel blessed to have gotten to experience you.
An Immense Weight Lifted
I always take something meaningful away from Michael’s lectures/workshops, etc. But I wanted to highlight one from last Thursday which really helped me. I recently made a big decision to begin taking prescription meds for my Anxiety and ADHD, which have both proved to be absolutely paralyzing in my life. It also caused deep self hatred and frustration for not being able to manage my thoughts, brain, and mood on my own. I’ve always been a naturally positive person, but it would just get so buried under psychology. Thus, the long awaited decision to stop trying to handle it myself and feeling miserable, to sucking it up and taking the pill. Then, in one of Michael’s talks, he spoke about “giving to Cesar what is Cesar’s,” and “giving to God what is God’s.” Michael said that if we have a headache, we can take a pill, but there’s more going on under it. Well, it clicked-in just the right way when he said that. I now have an immense weight lifted and feel 1000% more like my natural vibrant self again (but will still take my prescription). Now I have so MUCH MORE I can give to God! I have so MUCH MORE I can offer the world, and I am able to be that beautiful contribution to the world I believe I am meant to be. I always knew I have a lot to offer the world, but my head got in my way constantly, and took away from me being able to offer much of anything. The way Michael spoke about this seemed to give me the permission to take that pill without faulting myself. And to be grateful now that I have so much more to give to God…!!! And to know there are other things I can work on that are underlying those symptoms, but having the willpower and concentration now to carry out working on them. Many, many blessings…!!!
Dear Michael: since I saw you a few months ago, I have continued healing and have shifted so much. I have let go of abuse and have reclaimed my power. I am taking care and learning who I am. I have your tapes and listen to them all the time. They seem to teach me all that I need to know. I really love the one titled, “Living Love.” It has a beautiful message. However, what has helped me more than anything is learning more about Christ Consciousness. That is what was missing from my life. I cannot begin to thank you for all you’ve done for me. You gave me my life back and I no longer feel broken. You are truly an amazing person.
The Healing Has Begun
Dear Michael, I wanted to thank you for your healing sermon at Unity in MI. My husband had a stroke a year and a half ago and things have been very difficult for him since then. Your comments on despair were needed and very uplifting. When the Service was over, my husband got up from his seat unassisted. He also walked alone from the fellowship hall into the lobby to meet you. And on the way home when we stopped at the gas station, he got out of the car and washed the windows! What progress!
Hello Michael! When I met you for the first time, I had no idea that this meeting would change my life completely! Today, as I am growing in my relationships with God, my husband, my family, and friends. As I am feeling completely full of love, again I would like to thank God for this soul meeting between us, as well as thank you for all these changes in me! I pray to god to keep your light even brighter so you can keep giving to the ones that are all still searching for love.
A Changed Man
Since I saw Michael in Massachusetts a few months ago and attending his workshops, a lot of growth has transpired. I bought several of his CD’s, many of which I have now lent to my clients because I felt I could learn so much. One man in particular, is a 62 year old retired gentleman whom I have been meeting with in therapy/spiritual direction, for five years weekly. He’s a man of faith but a man who had previously thought of taking his own life and is clinically very depressed. He’s been very angry at God at the way his life turned out. So I gave him Michael’s CD on “You’re Not Going Crazy…” After listening to the CD, he could not give it back to me. He listened and listened daily, and sometimes many times daily. So I just let him keep it. And now, he’s a changed man. There’s something about Michael and his energy and his language and his expression that was just what this man needed to push him out of the birth canal. I have not seen him this motivated or clear about anything in the five years we’ve been meeting. He’s devouring Michael’s concepts of God loves his humor. While I am sure this kind of growth is happening to many people in many places that experience Michael, I still had to write. Every single soul that is affected should be celebrated!
Your Light Illumines
Michael: Thank you for the re-connection. Your light illumines the darkest places and rekindles the spark–to God.
The Purpose of a Healer
Dearest Michael: I hope you are well! You certainly are an inspiration to many. I was so inspired by you when you were here in Eugene. I valued your healing/service and I truly appreciated your influence in my life. Things have already changed quite a bit from just hearing the wise thoughts that you spoke. Furthermore, I was greatly influenced by the following characteristics I saw in you: 1) Healing is your purpose. 2) Your daily life is congruous with your ‘talk’. 2) You have made a business that supports you so that you can travel and provide your healing/service.
Love your Newsletters
Great newsletter last month, Michael…It hit home…regarding a certain student of mine (Madame X) and the fall-out which is still continuing…Ms X returned to class after an extended time away due to her health. She was extremely disruptive in class, feeling she was under attack from everyone. Well as I saw this as a momentary lesson for all, I also knew that she would need to either settle down or not attend the class. I knew I would need to talk to her before my next class…Within the time since the class, I have been contacted by some of the students and while I was amazed at the range of emotions, I did keep my teacher/counselor hat on and explained how this unpleasant event was indeed a valuable lesson and to not take it personally, as it was evident Ms X was going through an extremely difficult time and having a hard time observing her own behavior. I also explained how important it is to look at their own reactions and why our/ their buttons are being pushed. As they surrender this to God take time to pray for her and bless her. Not everyone agreed, so the class will continue…The point is I am happy to say I didn’t get caught up in the drama ( maybe a tiny bit) and saw the reason for Ms X and her contribution to my class…WooHoo… Blessings to you …
I Had Given Up
Dear Michael: I just wanted to send you a BIG thank you for your work. I attended your class in Fort Worth on Sunday and then the other class in Dallas on Wednesday. Quite honestly, for almost 7 years I had been in a funk and feeling like nothing was going my way. I had kinda given up on the fact that life could be good, and I was always at odds with how God could create a world like this and send us to “hell” when he is supposed to be loving and forgiving. I never had a use for organized religion; I always considered myself spiritual, but I still felt disconnected and lost. Seven years is a long time to be in the dark night of the soul, especially when it started at age 25. Everything you said in the course really resonated with me and I saw as the truth. I completely changed my attitude, and the miracles started rolling in, small and big!!! I guess the biggest miracle, like you said, was the “shift” in my attitude. This has truly been a life-changing experience for me. I now have a promising job interview, I am on the path to getting out of debt, and I am approaching my relationship with my boyfriend from a whole different perspective. Most of all, I am experiencing the joy and peace that has been so elusive to me for so long. So thank you again!! Please keep up the good work, and I hope to attend more of your courses when your return to this area.
Sense of Gratitude
Michael: I awoke today with a sense of gratitude and glory in God. I want to thank you for being in my life. When I think of all of us as souls, I understand the love of Christ in a deeper more powerful way. Recently you helped me understand the difference between the Holy Spirit and Christ and that feels like a huge puzzle has been unraveled in me. God speaks to me in such a clear voice at times and I sometimes feel overwhelmed from the degree of love that comes through. And when that happens, I often think of you, not as a man, but as a soul, which feels like so much more than the human thing. I really don’t know if I could even put it into words if I tried. Anyway I wanted to thank you for being a part of my life and journey in remembering who I am as God’s beloved child. Thank you.
Healing at Our Women’s Group
Dear Michael, On behalf of our Women’s Centre, I want to thank you for the work you have shared with all of us. We truly appreciate your time, effort, and support. Your work has had an enormous impact on the lives of our group, as they heal their lives and make positive changes.
Wish there were teachers like you in my area
I wish there was a teacher like you in my area. I feel sometimes like I’m starving–spiritually. I study a lot on my own, which is probably how God wants it for now but it would be so nice to listen in person to someone who actually had a clue as to who Christ is.
Discovering My Internal Landscape
Wow! Your recent Mastery Workshop was amazing on so many levels. I so appreciate all that you have taught me. The deep processing work has helped to clear what was muddy to me when viewing my internal landscape. I now have a greater understanding of how negative attitudes and behaviors have ruled some of my life. I understand that some of the old patterns may come up in my life, may hook me but I now have a greater awareness and will not let these patterns rule me. But I think your greatest teaching for me is how you model affectionate, connected, and unconditional love. Not that I think you do it perfectly, but you seem incredibly more willing to try to do it that anyone I have ever met, especially of the male gender. Anyway thanks again, Michael, for your dedication and devotion for my spiritual growth.
Thank you for your newsletter article on affection! It reminded me, not only of my first session with you, which I will never forget, but also of another time, when a church congregant had been seriously injured & life-flighted to a hospital. As a prayer chaplain, I drove up there and sat with him for hours praying and reading from one of our Unity Books. Though he was in a coma, I figured his sub-conscious would hear me. As I prayed “with” him, I affirmed that his body knew exactly how to heal itself. One afternoon, one of his doctors came in. As I passed in front of him so he would have room to examine my friend, he reached out and rubbed the top of my back—unheard of for a doctor in my previous experience! Anyway, I knew, then and there, my friend was in good hands!
Laugh, Love, Serve
Dear Michael: I loved attending your recent workshop on “Awakening Christ Consciousness.” I was beginning to think there was no one here on earth like you, and I still believe no one else is. Everything you do expresses God. You live what you teach and you model it so well, with clear intention and integrity. But I also love your sometimes odd humor and how you don’t need or want to be put on a pedestal. And I love how your passion feeds you beyond the rational. I am impressed with how you live in the moment and I so admire how you search for those timely opportunities to serve others, which, to an average observer, could seem like no big deal but to that person being served, it is everything. It is not only your teachings, but also because of your humanness, your example of mastery, and your encouragement for others that students like myself really come to believe that we can do what we came here to do. I’m grateful God led me to you. He knew I would be in good hands.
The Answers to My Questions
Greetings Michael! I attended Unity on The River this past weekend for both the morning service and your afternoon workshop session. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us. I left your lecture with many questions answered as well as many more to explore. I have attended an evangelical Christian church for many years, but as I have aged (am now 61) I find I have had many times where I’ve felt been feeling quite unsettled about it. I realize I’m searching for answers and peace. I have read your book You’re not going Crazy…and have recently started reading Healing the Heart & Soul. I feel I may be at the beginning of a new journey which is both exciting and scary at the same time. My friend and my daughter each had the priviledge of seeing you in private session today and I know they both were impacted greatly by the experience. Bless you for the work that you do.
Change and Growth
Michael, My life over the last two years has been filled with change and growth—some of which I jumped for and some of which I went forward with but with resistance. After each step I thought, this is it. I am there . . . only to find within a short time that there was more to uncover or another issue with which to deal. Knowing this, it is understandable that I am not the same person at all anymore. Even since the last time I saw you, more progress has been made on my journey. Interestingly, the more that I do uncover, own, and change the more beautiful and peaceful it feels inside . . . no more sense of urgency or need to control my life and no more fear. Now, I’m just enjoying the journey. I am becoming a grown up . . . For the first time in my life and it’s exhilarating. When I met you I thought I was an adult, but I was a very little child. Now, although I embrace the playfulness of youth and the heart and innocence of a child, I am balancing that with the emotional maturity and responsibility of an adult. I don’t know where I go from here, but I am sure it will be interesting.
A Gentle Touch Can Melt Years of Defense
Michael, Thank you so much for your focused attention at Saturday’s workshop and during my session last week. It is amazing to me how much a gentle touch on the shoulder has opened me up. There are so many ways I shut myself down over the past 24 years that I truly did not expect to feel much of anything for a long time. It is such a pleasant surprise to feel energy throughout my body along with sensuality, already. I didn’t know it (sensuality) was even still in there! Michael, I was so detached from my body that I usually didn’t even feel things, like stubbing a toe. I expect that there will be ups and downs throughout the healing process, but I’ve decided to focus my spiritual homework and on healing quickly. I am totally shifting my point of view on almost every aspect of my personal life. I’ve made an observation that often statements you make, that are not directly attached to the topic, have opened areas of contemplation I wouldn’t have gone to on my own (or maybe not till much later). I like it. Bravo! Your lesson pacing and quick responding to participants make for an enjoyable learning experience.
I Have Awakened!
Hi Michael! First I would like to say thank you for inviting me and my two friends to your Christ Consciousness class as a guest. The entire Sedona trip like the Sacred Sites Tour was divinely orchestrated for me. I am so grateful that I have awakened and listened to the divine being within and that I followed that guidance which brought me on the tour and to Sedona. These past two years have been a constant change for me. I have worked on releasing old thought patterns, healing this life and past lives, healing relationships, working on forgiveness not only for others but especially for myself. I thank you for all of your love, compassion, teachings and wisdom that has helped me to move to the next level of the Christ within me. You are truly an example of the truth that is God.
Free, Happy and Safe
Michael, I’m still struggling with working on remembering my dreams, but last night was powerful and so vivid. I dreamed you and I were walking in a country side with small stone walls and sheep. I have never felt so comfortable and safe, made me realize when I woke how hyper-vigilant I am on a daily basis. Anyway, I was just concentrating on what you were saying and absorbing every word. Then I noticed I was walking faster to keep up with you, even though you were at the same pace. You smiled and said, “It’s okay, go with it.” I started to move ahead of you and then was running. You were still beside me, but not running. Then I flew! I was light! Free! Happy beyond anything I’ve ever felt! And SAFE! Looked down at you and you were watching me, smiling, repeating “It’s okay!!!” Michael, I didn’t want to wake up. It was beyond anything I’ve ever experienced before. So safe, loved, sure, I was crying, laughing, no negative thoughts, words, emotions. I can’t find true words. Last night will stay with me for awhile. It was awesome and had to share.
Joy and Forgiveness
Dear Michael: I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to write your article about Gary Renard and his “attackers.” Gary was my introduction to A Course in Miracles and I will always be incredibly grateful. I enjoyed his human, “recovering jerk” personality. He made me laugh. I also know that some people don’t like him. I thought you did an awesome job covering the conflict in your article. I’ve experienced spiritual groups that split due to similar disagreements. As a result, I had turned away from any spiritual groups. The joy and forgiveness that I have been able to access as a result of reading Gary’s book(s) and now in ACIM, has transformed my life.
Gratitude from Australia
Dear Michael: It has been almost 4 years since I last wrote to you…I feel rather silly contacting you after being out of contact for four years, but your book, The Seven Initiations of the Spiritual Path jumped out at me when I passed my bookcase. So I looked up your website and by the look of things you do so much touring you do live the Christ life, since his ministry took him all over the place as well!!! Anyway, I opened your book and am enjoying re-reading your insightful teachings yet again. I wouldn’t be where I am today without having met you…I remember I had gone to a spiritualist, 18 months prior to meeting you and she mentioned that I was to meet a man who looked like Jesus who would impact my life. I thought yeah, yeah, yeah…Time ticked on and then my girlfriend handed me your workshop flier with your photo and I was gob-smacked. That’s when I decided to meet you. Your teachings have stayed with me and have been very profound and resonant. Sometimes what you said, in one time and place, has different meanings in another. This is something I always marvel. So thank you.
Your friend from Australia Down-under.
Brother to Brother
Dear Brother Michael, I pray this letter finds you in the highest of spirits and at peace, which I know you are. Your lecture/overview and insights on some of the deepest topics was amazing and you are truly an illumined soul. May peace and harmony be with you eternally.
Love Conquers All!
Just wanted to say that you are such an amazing supporting person/friend to myself and so many other people in this world. You affect everyone on a very deep level of love. It’s awesome to be as brave as you are to reach people like you do. You use something as natural as love (something we are born with but forgot), and use it to break through the blocks and fears that surround us all. Thank you for that!
Just a note to say that your article on Kindness was EXCELLENT, on about a bajillion levels. “Kindness” is a concept that I have been trying to find more fully within myself and this takes it a step further. Plus, Michael is such an excellent example of it, so we who read this know and appreciate what it means. I will make a conscious effort to carry this forward in my interactions.
I Remember the Prayers
It’s been years since I’ve seen you but I have thought much about you and the work you have/had done with me and how it has changed my life. I still love the way you pray and I have been able to learn to have a better connection with our Mother/Father God. I am doing much healing work now and one day I pray that I will be able to make it to your Avalon Retreat and learn and grow more in the Spiritual life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Dear Michael: Thank you . . . Thank you . . . Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Many years ago our paths crossed. That was the most incredible time in my life. I thank you for connecting with me and reigniting my inner flame of remembering. I am deeply grateful for your love and patience and releasing me to soar among the masters of Light. In your eyes I see love, peace, and harmony. You touched my heart.
Love Can Be Grounding
Dearest Michael, I had the unbelievable pleasure of meeting you in West palm Beach, Florida. Your presence is so pure and loving it automatic grounded & centered me. I felt unending Love & Happiness. I have traveled a spiritual road all my life and have studied under many (so called) Masters who have guided me in life’s quest but have never felt a presence like yours. Now, I hope to have a session with you in person.
Dear Michael, Thank you for your time and energy this past weekend-your presence is always such a treat. I speak for several people who heard you on Sunday when I say that your message was incredibly profound and powerful. In your inimitable style-you delivered a beautiful message that opened our hearts and touched our souls. I know you hear it all the time, but You, dear Michael, are quite the blessing! All of us felt that the information you presented was perfect for the day-any day for that matter. A seminar or retreat on the subject of Mother and Father Love and healing; sharing how our relationships with our Mothers and Fathers reflect our relationships with God could touch so many people. It resonated with all of us-our beliefs around the feminine and masculine aspects of God are present in every encounter. I left wishing my daughter had been there. Looking forward to your next visit.
In love and gratitude for all you do.
“Michael Mirdad noticeably lifted the energy of Unity on the River. His talks fit seamlessly into our theme of transformation, and we appreciated the energy and consciousness he brings. Michael facilitated three services and two workshops—none of which duplicated each other. We look forward to his next visit, just a month away.”
Rev. Morgan Barclay, Unity of the River, MA
