Review for Called by Love Institute, Tustin, CA, USA
I first met Marj Britt when she was introduced on a webinar by Adyashanti, a spiritual mentor for whom I have the deepest respect. I was at first taken aback, because Marj was from a Christian background. That was my background initially, but I was cautious because in the past I had experienced too much "dogma" on that path. But her mission, Called By Love, was so deeply attractive to me that I dropped my resistance and connected with her. Am I ever glad I did!
That was back about 4 years ago. When I got to know Marj, I discovered that she is a "Christian Mystic" with a deep understanding and respect for ALL spiritual paths and is totally open, loving and non-judgmental. I found myself opening more and more to Love. I listened into and participated in the calls on the worldwide web. As a result of that and attending a live event I met new friends who have become dear to me.
In July 2015 my wife Joyce suffered a severe stroke that took out the right side of her body. She broke her right ankle in two places and suffered second and third degree burns on two-thirds of her right forearm as it fell into a pot of boiling water in her fall to the floor. She spent the next 10 days in a hospital followed by 100 days in a skilled nursing facility and 4 weeks in an advanced acute rehabilitation program at a local hospital.
Very shortly after her stroke, I contacted four of the most "spiritually potent" people I know to surround her with healing, loving energy. Marj was one of those. I was a little reluctant to call because I knew that she was very busy and involved in her work. She responded like I was the most important person to her at that moment. Her loving, open response told me she "walks her talk".
During my wife's stay at the skilled nursing facility, I had what Marj refers to as a"download". Suddenly one evening i had this glowing energy around my solar plexus with the internal "voice" that said "Joyce will be healed by Love alone". I found this to be true with the loving energy she received from Marj and friends and those at CBL plus the care she received including numerous serendipitous events and people (and yes, drugs can be created, given and taken with love as well.) I also realized that I also was being healed by Love and became more open and loving in my relationships with my wife, others - and myself.
Joyce continues to improve, reaching levels of recovery that one doctor told her not to expect (especially since we are both in our seventies). Also, my relationship with Joyce continues to grow.
I am deeply grateful for Marj and Called By Love.
Beloved Don, I (Marj) was deeply touched by what you wrote. It brought back for me that incredible moment when I received the call from my Beloved friend, Adyashanti, telling me that he wanted to dialogue about the ‘Descent of Spirit’ on his worldwide call, that he wanted to do that with me because I had that ‘piece’, which was coming from my Christian Mysticism. It moves me, touches my heart to this day, that he asked me to be in that dialogue with him. It is the Descent of the Dove in scripture. Your words, “I found myself opening more and more to Love” describe exactly what happens when we say ‘yes’ to this incredible path of Love, purity and devotion, seeing through the eyes of the soul. I am so grateful that you have made this deep commitment to healing through Love. We often first ‘get it' through another person, sometimes in moments of deep shock, even crises. And then it begins to penetrate us in ways that bring its Awareness into our knowing It consciously.
