Devil in a box

It’s episode thirteen! It’s Halloween season!

In this episode of the podcast, Miracles in Manhattan, we talk about how our experience of life can feel like a series of nasty surprises. Like when we were kids and we turned the crank on a jack-in-the-box… we heard the silly music and started to smile… then a weird head popped out that looked like it had a twisted soul… we were scared all of a sudden.

In order to change our experience of life - to make our experience of life feel safe instead of scary - we must understand what, in reality, keeps us safe. Life doesn’t follow the rules we think it does; life follows the rules of Spirit.

So, let’s seek to understand Spirit. I can promise you that you can feel safe and loved every day.

Have a listen to the episode and email me with your thoughts and questions.

I love to hear from you.

A theory as to the origin of the jack-in-the-box is that it comes from the 14th-century English prelate Sir John Schorne, who is often pictured holding a boot with a devil in it. According to folklore, he once cast the devil into a boot to protect the village of North Marston in Buckinghamshire. In French, a jack-in-the-box is called a " diable en boîte " (literally "devil in a box").
