About John Mark Stroud:
A single unexpected moment in John Mark’s mid 20’s left him with a vast and dark sense of emptiness. He would spend the next 15 years immersed in feverish worldly activity, trying in vain to ﬁll this emptiness. But finally, in 2007, he was compelled to sell his business and begin the inward search for peace and happiness that had always eluded him. Almost immediately he was swept up in a tidal wave of Grace. He was lead to “A Course in Miracles”, “The Way of Mastery” and “A Course of Love”. These pathways led him to the direct experience of God’s limitless Love and Peace. With great Joy, he now shares that Limitless Love with all as One.
John Mark’s Takeaway:
- LAUGHTER. Tune into Spirit’s laughter. (You just have to listen to this part of the episode for yourself!)
- Everyone has a connection to Spirit and you know how to connect with guidance. You just have to do some fine tuning since we allowed the harsh ego voice to set up camp in our mind.
- When you ask for guidance, the request is heard on the “first utterance” (I love how John Mark said this!). You don’t need to keep asking. You need to get quiet. Get quiet by softening and taking some deep breaths.
- Instead of expecting guidance to come in words, allow it to come through a knowing or a “knowsis” as John Mark calls it. Words are limits.
- Check in throughout your day… Are you tuned into the “ME” channel? Or are you tuned into the Holy Spirit’s channel? The choice is yours.

This podcast was so wonderful and helpful! Thank you John Mark…and keep them coming Corinne!! Love it!
Yay Lisa! So happy you loved it! More to come… xoxoxo
Thank you! Is there another word for Holy Spirit? And can you please clarify what does forgivness mean in ACIM?
Hi Elo! You can think of the Holy Spirit as your inner guidance system (in my book I call the HS your “Inner Therapist”). I like to think of forgiveness as that which is “for giving to” the Holy Spirit. We don’t actually know how to forgive. 🙂
Loved it ! John Mark is one of my favorites. In fact, he is the reason that I started studying ACIM.
So glad you enjoyed it! And I agree… John Mark ROCKS! 🙂
That was really awesome! I was resistant at first… didn’t want to listen, and then wanted it to be over quickly, haha. But then I started to really enjoy and appreciate what he had to say…. so helpful! Thank you both.
I know that resistance well, Kathy! lol! Glad you enjoyed it 🙂
That was absolutely wonderful, Corinne! I’m very grateful for teachers like you and John Mark. As someone who has been struggling with ‘hearing’ Spirit’s guidance and efforting, despite ‘knowing’ that I was going about it in a false way; I was guided to this talk! 😊
The guided meditation was so immensely helpful. As a new ACIM student, these teachings are so comforting. I love you all! ♥️
Wonderful! Thanks to Rev. Mike for sharing this with me.
I listened to this podcast over 6
months ago, and so many times since then I’ve felt compelled to share what a gigantic help this podcast has been for me. Especially the concept of tuning into the Holy Spirit channel – this has made all the difference in terms of finding that relaxed, peaceful, and happy state where I am most receptive to guidance.
Thank you so much Corinne and Mark!
Sorry, I mean thank you Corinne and John Mark.
