Dear Friend,You know the feeling… You are simply very present, awake, alert, and in the flow. In this state, you listen attentively, are more patient, kind, and loving, and much more creative, decisive, and productive in your actions.
So, what gets in the way of your being present? It is simple: your mental and emotional preoccupations—your habitual thinking about “me, myself, and my story.” And it’s your emotional triggers that point to where you are not yet free. Whenever you get caught in an emotional reaction, look for the “story” behind it. There always is one. And the more you see that your “story,” just like the emotion itself, comes and goes, but that you—as this aware, conscious person—are always here, the more present you are.
As freedom becomes more real, you consciously use the power of thought to create a new “story” for your life— optimal health, loving relationships, work you enjoy, more financial abundance, and a richness of meaning, love, and purpose that is continually self-renewing.
Love and blessings,
Rumi said: "Whoever enters the Way without a guide will take a hundred years to travel a two-day journey."
A private session with me is one of the most powerful and effective ways to uncover the stories that still keep you bound, preventing you from experiencing the love and richness possible in your relationships, work, and life. It will accelerate your awakening.
For a limited time, I am offering a one hour intro session for $65, includes PDF of my new book, Dancing in Freedom ($100 value)
