Holding Out For The Finish Line

holding out for the finish line

Holding out for the finish line

How often have you given up, instead of holding out for the finish line?

This is a question I have been asking myself recently. This could be a theme that runs on a ‘replay loop’ through times of my life.

I am currently working through a business mentoring program with a group of like-minded small business owners. We are just over half way through our programme and I find it hard to quantify all I have learnt or refined in this short while.

What I have learnt:

  • I am not alone in my quest to serve the Greater Good, and in so doing, become the best version of myself that I aspire to be
  • There are others who also struggle with the truth that what each has to offer is incredibly valuable
  • What is required of me is to focus on my vision and then consistently apply small daily actions that will result in rewarding outcomes
  • When I have support and encouragement from those I am working with, and from those whom I serve, the quality of my work improves
  • My best work unfolds when I hold myself accountable to the Highest Version of myself
  • Losing focus, losing faith in myself and the process, prevents me from holding out for the finish line.

When I reflect on the Journey that has brought me to here and now, I recognise many instances where I felt so discouraged with an apparent lack of progress, or a twist in the road that deflected me off the path I was on. Did I lose interest because nothing seemed to be happening – or what I wanted to happen didn’t? Or did I lose sight of the finish line because the journey seemed too long and arduous?

What if those instances were, in fact, just short training periods to prepare me for the big event? Imagine if all those experiences were just the most perfect preparation for what is now working out in my world?

The most wonderful example happened to me yesterday.

I turned up for my monthly 5km timed Parkrun because I had made a commitment to myself that I would hold myself accountable to keep up my morning runs. The Parkrun ensures that I keep on track with time and distance when I run during the week. I felt flat and tired after a busy week – but I was committed! From the first few steps I knew that my legs were running on Angel Power. It was effortless. I was stunned and amazed.

Do you know what feels like to be carried on Angels’ wings, to be fully supported?

I ran my personal best time, which stunned me.

I ask myself now: what will it take to feel this way more often; to consistently tap into the grace of the Universe, to show up and expect to do my best.  This way, holding out for the finish line becomes exciting and enjoyable.

What does holding out for the finish line evoke for you?

Choosing My Adventure

Choosing My Adventure - Freedom Plan Lifestyle

Choosing My Adventure – Freedom Plan Lifestyle

Choosing my adventure for Day 8 of the blogging challenge was interesting! What could I do that was fun, made me feel that I had all the time in the world, and could set me up to include more such activities in my Freedom Plan lifestyle?

As it was a ‘normal’ working week day for me, I chose to browse in a few clothing stores after-hours. Having also recently completed a mini-makeover workshop, I was keen to hone my new skills in finding wonderful garments that flattered my colouring and body shape.

I loved the feeling of browsing at leisure without being compelled to buy anything which was not pleasing to me. I knew what I was looking for –  even so, it was fun just observing other shoppers, and taking the time to absorb the colours, textures and styles of the rows and racks of clothing.

I felt great appreciation for the designers of the garments, for the people who had been employed to construct, market and merchandise all of these amazing clothes.

Because I was feeling centered, on purpose, but also expansive, I found 4 items that were a perfect fit, perfect colour, and perfect match for what I had intended. And – the price was perfect too – an added bonus!

These are the kind of adventures I am choosing for my Freedom Plan Lifestyle. They may seem routine ‘every day’ activities, but when they are tinged with a sense of awe and wonder, they soon become part of a Perfect Day, day after day after day.

I know my adventures are different to yours…  Inspire me and share yours?

Create a New Vision of Life

 

thought shifting helps us to create a new vision of life.

Thought Shifting – Create a New Vision of Life

I find Dr Norm Shealy a great source of inspiration and information especially regarding creating a new vision of Life. (www.normshealy.com). In a recent newsletter, he posted this article by Janice Paul MA, and I would love to share it with you.

SHATTER NEGATIVITY WITH A THOUGHT-PART II 

CREATES A NEW VISION OF LIFE

By thought shifting to the greater good of others is how the negative energy pathway of the world will start to change. The thought intention for the highest good of others creates a transfer of positive energy that will radiate and bounce back off of the highest good action, which will then satisfy the individual’s need.

It is the realization that others’ needs are truly our own needs. It is the oneness concept.

If a person decides to accept this change in their thought process the end result will be a new vision of life.

Once the decision is made to change the thought process to the greater good then it is as if a giant book opens up and all instructions, directions, wisdom and answers are given to all. All knowledge becomes available. Advanced knowledge that has never been known before becomes available. It is knowledge based upon an inner opening of the mind. A blocked off portion of the mind that has never been known before. It is an unveiling of a blocked off cave. A cave within the mind that has been unknown. It is a cave of knowledge that becomes available to all.

The switch in the thought process is what opens the door to this cave of knowledge.

It is creating a world in which positive energy, wisdom and knowledge buffer the negativity. Through the buffering there will be a reduction in all that is created by negative energy. All negative energy that is filled and made up of self- need fulfillment will be deflated. In the deflation process, there will be more positive changes that will fuel individual growth in all forms.

A thriving will start to be seen in all beings. A thriving in the land, air, water – all that is impacted by energy. It is as if there will be a comfort blanket of positive energy around all beings. It will serve as a shield against negative energy.

The comfort blanket will also serve as a conductor that will pull more positive energy inside of the blanket. This comfort blanket of positive energy builds and builds, continues to push against each other, expanding and expanding until the negative energy is pushed out of the way. It also helps to increase the vibrational level of the world.

Sound in the world will change. There will be a lessening of loud, hurtful sounds and an increase in soft, peaceful sounds. Sounds that help to heal rather than harm. Soft sounds have healing ability beyond what we currently know. The soft sound will enter the body of any being and work towards desensitizing the nerve endings so that the body and mind will relax.

Vision of the individual will also change. The input and output of positive energy through vision will be healing. Positive energy attaches to the eye and acts as a buffer from negative energy entering in this way.

I am inspired to shift my thought processes. What would it take for me to be in the energy of Thought Changing?

Stand Up – Be Moved

Movement is crucial for our existence! This guest post highlights movement in our work environment. This could be in a corporate environment, and also our home office. Stand up and be moved!

standing desks allow movement at work

Stand up – Be Moved!

 

Sit to stand desks have become the latest thing to have in the modern office. They are not, however, the silver bullet for everyone. As with any product it is about the end user being educated as to why and how they work better for us as well as understanding what you should be looking for when investigating the sit to stand desk market.

 

There are two reasons why such desks work.

  1. Fundamentally humans should not sit all day – we are not designed for it and it is not good for us. More importantly, we shouldn’t be staying in one position for too long – movement is key. Varying your position between sitting and standing on a regular basis brings some movement to your working environment.
  1. Secondly, human proportions/measurements vary tremendously. The desk height norm of 720mm will not, therefore, suit everyone. In fact, from a survey undertaken by Ergostyle this standard height of 720mm suits very few – 90% of the surveyed people have a sitting elbow height of between 590 and 710mm. Additionally the standing height of some desks do not suit everybody. It is important that the height range of a desk is considered and ideally matched to the people using it.

Calculate your individual ideal height range as follows:

  1. The desk height when sitting should be one finger width (approximately 2cm) below your elbow when sitting correctly in a height adjustable chair (feet flat on the floor and a 90 degree angle between the lower and upper leg)
  1. The desk height when standing should again be one finger below your elbow when you are standing. The space allowed for below your elbow (when shoulders are relaxed) allows for your arms to swing easily over a keyboard without raising your shoulders.

Besides height, the other crucial consideration for a desk is the lift capacity. This not only affects directly the amount of weight the desk has been designed to take but also affects the ease with which the desk copes with the weight and thus the life of the lifting mechanism. A desk which has to carry a weight close to its capacity does not last as long as one where the weight easily falls within its capacity.

Additional features to look for in a sit to stand desk are its

  • Stability (how stable is the desk at its greatest height?)
  • Is the height displayed? (best practice under AS/NZS442:1997)
  • Is the control programmable or does it integrate with a computer?
  • Is cable management provided?

And don’t forget to stand up to be moved!

Out Of The Box using Creative Thinking

Creative Thinking moves us out of the box we have become stuck in.

Move Out of the Box using Creative Thinking

Would you like to step Out of the Box you feel confined in?

I meet once a month, via a conference call, with a group of like-minded friends for The Creative Field Project which is:

  • A global network of people committed to the evolution of consciousness.
  • A field of collective awareness of the transforming, healing spirit of Love which is inherent to all people.
  • A context for engaging with other people in our individual awakening, learning and service.

The program is available to anyone, anywhere in the world, regardless of nationality, language, religion or culture. Small groups of about seven people meet monthly to assist with personal and collective breakthroughs that lead to new awareness and a new basis for service in the world. Groups meet in person, via phone or Skype.

At the end of November 2010 I was invited to participate in one such group. I accepted.

It changed my life!

Each month we are sent some material to consider before we meet. Each group has a Facilitator who hosts the meeting, and we are invited to follow a process to reflect on various aspects of the material and our individual responses.

Recently, a new approach was set in motion – we were invited to choose an area or dynamic in our lives where we wanted to effect changes, or shine some light on. We were to be spending four months working on a process which first identified the area/dynamic, then highlighted some creative action points to implement. This process has built in impetus, as once targeted, an action can be fine- tuned while being practiced.

There is great power in being held in a non-judgemental space while naming your fears and so-called failings. Each person in the group is witness to your challenges and shares joyfully in your triumphs. The collective energy grows stronger over time, and my fellow participants have become my chosen family, part of my chosen ‘tribe’.

For the third meeting in this particular cycle we were invited to view the dynamic that we had chosen to work with as if we were living in a closed box, with a limited pattern of thinking and feeling, relative to the circumstances of our life.

In order to transcend feeling stuck or limited, we were invited to think of the two most masterful people we knew (living or not) at a mental and emotional level, who could bring their clarity and focus to the situation to get you Out of the Box. Were there any necessary steps to take to implement these ideas or strategies?

Finally, we were invited to find five different approaches to the things that had been restricted, limited or stuck – approaches out of the box, out of the current mental and emotional context in which we had been functioning. These we would be sharing with our group.

What a valuable and interesting process!

I came away with more ideas than I thought possible, because they were presented from a place outside my usual standpoint, out of my usual box. This coming month will be rich with possibilities, and I so look forward to our next call together, to share in my group’s growth, humour and positive energy.

If you are interested in finding out more about The Creative Field, or would like to join a Small Group, click on the live link.

Expect to function Out of the Box you have been confined in!

Fear of Change

Fear of Change stops Transformation

Fear of Change stops Transformation

Fear: painful emotion caused by impending danger or evil, state of alarm

Change: alteration; substitution of one for another, variety

(The Concise Oxford Dictionary)

During the past week I have seen two very different situations that have brought me to consider the Fear of Change, experienced both by others and myself.

In the first instance, I was visiting a person in the community who had engaged in an exercise program to promote balance and lower limb strength – the aim of which is to improve older peoples’ mobility and confidence so that they can safely live in their own homes independently.

Many of the elderly people I visit still live in the family homes where they raised their children, where they have experienced trials, tribulations, triumphs and great joy. The homes in which they have lived full and rich lives. Some are now alone, their partner having died or separated years ago. Their walls are adorned with family portraits and photos spanning generations, and memorabilia precious to them. Some homes are light and airy, others stuffy with curtains drawn. The homes take on the personalities of their owners and occupants.

Community Health workers may be the only external people to enter some homes, especially if the client does not have family living close by or friends who visit regularly. It is both a responsibility, and a privilege, not to be treated lightly.

This particular person lives alone, has multiple medical conditions and no family living in our city. It was clear to me that she was not managing the considerable upkeep of her large family home and her own health and well being, and I had been wondering how to be of best assistance to her, within the scope of my practice.

Her fear of change intervened.

At my most recent appointment she met me at the door, and told me she would not be inviting me inside, as she believed I had criticized her home – the home that her husband built for her and where she had lived all her married life.

She elaborated that she would live in her home for the rest of her life and that no-one would be able to force her out so long as she was coping.

I had not criticized her home. I had agreed with her when she had mentioned that there were mice in her lounge which she could not be rid of. She took my agreement as criticism, and must have then felt fear that I would set some actions in motion that could force her to accept help, or worse, present her with the notion that she would need to consider more manageable living arrangements.

Her Fear of Change caused her to reject beneficial action: the exercise program to help her stay in her own home!

The other circumstance is that of a friend going through a relationship break up. Raw emotions of grief and disbelief, if-only scenarios, wishing it were different. The shared home lovingly transformed over the years has now been sold. The garden is coming into its full summer glory, almost making a mockery of the hours spent visioning and planting. A new house has been bought, and awaits some loving attention. A new future beckons, with new opportunities for joy, for self-expression. Yet still there is the tug, the pulling backwards into what was. “I am scared of change. I want what is familiar”.

The Fear of Change holds us back, yet again.

“The events that transform us are usually not the things we would choose. As someone said, we never want to go through what we need to go through to become what we want to become.” Andrew Matthews – Follow Your Heart.

Reflecting on these two situations I am left pondering where I am allowing the Fear of Change to influence my own decision making. Only by letting go of the shore will my boat have the freedom to sail!

What Fear is holding you back from Change?

New Thinking – New Experience

New Thinking brings New Experience for www.selfmanagechronicpain.com

New Thinking brings New Experience

 

Have you recently changed your thinking about something, and noticed how your world opened up? New Thinking results in New Experience.

Last weekend I was one of the many people promoting a service and health based product at our local Mind Body Spirit Festival, which is held every six months at a multi-storied venue in the city. Stalls or cubicles are set up on the first two floors, with talks and workshops taking place on the third floor.

Regulars to the Festival feel a sense of familiarity with the layout and recognise many of the stall holders as they return each time, often to their same ‘space’. For a newcomer, the experience can be totally overwhelming! Imagine how much new thinking is stimulated, which results in new experience.

First, there is the sense of excitement, the hub-bub of sounds – conversation, music, general activity. The visual stimulation is intense. Posters, wall hangings, tables laden with enticing objects, the vibrant clothing and jewellery people are wearing. Your sense of smell is awakened, by the aroma of foods in the food area, fragrances of massage oils, soaps and other products.

So much to see, so many services and products on offer, so many people searching for who knows what? If you came with a particular purpose in mind, it is easy to fulfill your mission and leave feeling satisfied. But what if you had no idea what you were ultimately looking for? A vague sense of wanting something, hoping you would know what it was once it was in front of you.

I met people for whom all of these situations were true.

On the first day I was stationed at our stall, waiting for people to pass by, hoping to interest them in what we had to offer. Many times, these people had a dazed look about them, not wanting to be ‘accosted again’ by a zealous stall holder determined to bend their ear about the “next best thing”. They looked harried, overstimulated, tired, in need of a reassuring hug and a still quiet place to recover their equilibrium. Perhaps new thinking was too active resulting in too many new experiences.

I did not particularly enjoy the hours ‘attached’ to the stall. I did not feel that I created enough opportunities to serve, to offer anything of value to these people who were obviously searching for ‘something’, yet trying to escape from feeling cornered.

Overnight, I realised that my experience would change when my attitude and actions changed. I welcomed new thinking and new experiences. I decided to ‘be the change’, and spent the morning as a Roving Ambassador of Goodwill. I set out to meet each stall holder, to find out who they were, where they came from, what they were offering, and how I could meet any of their needs with what I was offering.

Guess what? I met so many interesting and lovely people! I handed out small samples as an energy exchange. I practiced the art of receiving too, accepting compliments and any snippets of advice or information. The experience was priceless.

Someone suggested to me that I could host my own stall next time – as a Roving Ambassador of Goodwill. It is a thought! Meanwhile, I shall keep practicing the technique: New Thinking leads to New Experiences.

Are Spiritual People Always Happy?

David Karchere

 

DAVID KARCHERE is a speaker and workshop leader who assists people to renew their Primal Spirituality—an experience that virtually all human beings know at birth, and that ideally grows as they mature.

I recently attended a Seminar co-presented by David – at Riverdell, in July! I receive the weekly emailing – The Pulse of Spirit, and in this most recent one (August 23, 2015) David shares his wonderful insights about living a full and joyful life – despite the current level of physical pain he was enduring! 

With great respect, I share his words:

 

When I began to think about the topic of our first live online public course, a good friend suggested the theme of happiness. It is a subject of growing interest for people.

Dr. Jane Anetrini had introduced me to Dr. Dan Baker’s book What Happy People Know. And I’ve noticed the growing focus on the positive side of psychology – moving away from a study of mental disease to a study of what well-being looks like.

In July, I visited Riverdell, the Emissary Spiritual Center in South Australia. Dr. Andrew Horwood arranged for me to give a public talk in downtown Gawler on the topic 7 Simple Steps to a Happy, Fulfilling Life. Gawler is not a large town. But 60 people turned out in a packed room at the Prince Albert Hotel. They were fascinated and delighted.

Clearly, the topic was of intense interest. Just as important to me, I found that the subject of happiness gave me an opportunity to speak about the most pivotal areas of our human experience. It was an opportunity to explore the primal bond – our connection with all people, all of nature, and with the creative spirit within us.

Returning home to Sunrise Ranch, the team of people working on the course got very focused on the content. What would be important to people? How could we really make a difference in people’s lives?

The first issue to address was the very nature of happiness. Surely, it must go beyond a momentary feeling of elation, even though that’s delightful.

So the first of the three modules is on The True Nature of Joy. I had just written a chapter for Joyce Graham’s upcoming book, Accessing Joy. I entitled it The Joy of Creation. The truth I wanted to explore was fresh in my mind.

Life contains such poetry and irony.

As I developed the material for the first module of the course, I was recovering from a back spasm, aggravated by my travel. At times, it really hurt!

There I was, writing about joy. And my lower back was killing me!

And then I GOT it.

How perfect!  Joy isn’t just about feeling good. Happiness isn’t just a momentary sensation. I was in some pain. But I knew deep joy and fulfillment in my life. I am a happy man!

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t like pain any more than the next person does. Truth be told, I’m a wimp when it comes to things like dentistry and other kinds of physical pain. I avoid pain when I have a chance. And that includes emotional pain too.

But I am a happy man, with or without a back spasm. I have joy in my life even if I am having a bad day. My joy is from something way beyond that. How can I share the key to that understanding?

I had collided with a belief that is in the back of many people’s minds: If I am on a spiritual path, good things will always happen to me, and they’ll make me happy.

Really?

When I think about it, the most spiritual people I have known in my life have dealt with all kinds of illness, heartache and disappointment.

And then I think about the people who are spiritual heroes to me. People like Martin Luther King, John Lennon, the Dalai Lama and Jesus. They each faced huge challenges. And they radiated joy.

No, happiness isn’t just a momentary sensation.

I’ve decided to name the course The Master Key to a Happy and Fulfilling Life. It will be a deep exploration of what happiness and fulfillment really is, and how to embrace it your own life.

Below is the link to the page where you can find out more about the course and register.

http://davidkarchere.com/ps-masterkey-register

I hope you can join me in our first live online course.

Next time I’ll explore the question, “What is the Master Key to Happiness?”

Warm regards,

David

Want A New Knee?

total knee replacementWant a new knee?

Last Saturday morning I attended a study morning, dedicated to the topic of knee replacements, hosted by the New Zealand Orthopaedic Nurses Association. I learned a lot!

 

Prof Gary Hooper, Orthopaedic Surgeon, spoke about the history of knee replacements and the complex functional problems which arise when the alignment of the prosthetic parts is faulty. He also stated that the incidence of joint replacements is increasing in New Zealand, and is expected to reach epidemic proportions due to:

  • Our aging population
  • The increasing numbers of healthy retired people
  • The greater expectation of the population to access free health funded procedures

He also reported that statistics for the USA predict that by 2030

  • Total hip replacements will increase by 157%
  • Total knee replacements will increase by 673%.

New Zealand statistics show that we model similar trends.

The NZ Orthopaedic Association has established a NZ Joint Registry which collates information about joint arthroplasty outcomes. Using data gathered between the years 1999-2012:

  • The incidence of Total Knee Replacements has increased by 157%
  • The incidence of Total Knee Replacements is 57% higher than Total Hip Replacements

These statistics are attributed to the physically orientated population, high levels of obesity, ethnicity, and favour females between the ages of 70-79 years of age.

By 2018, it is predicted that the number of Total Knee Replacements will exceed the number of Total Hip Replacements.

The Survival Rate of the prosthesis has been found to be 95%, for a period of approximately 14 years – after which a revision of the procedure may be necessary. This is the main reason why people under the age of 55 years are discouraged from having the surgery as their chances for requiring a revision are greater.

Reasons for requiring revision can include:

  • Prosthesis in the Tibia loosening
  • Patellar problems
  • Deep infection
  • Pain

Prof Hooper was very clear in stating that any person who has had any form of joint replacement could be at risk of deep tissue infection for the rest of their lives. Any haematological infection (carried in the blood) such as a respiratory tract or urinary tract infection, could cause a “seed to plant” in the replacement area. Any such infection must be treated by prophylactic antibiotics.

By far the commonest cause for revision is PAIN. Even after revision, which is usually cementless, the person will probably still experience PAIN.

With my background in Pain Management, this is not at all surprising, as numerous people return to surgery to “investigate the source of pain” after “failed” procedures, leaving the person worse off than before, as the pain pathways have yet again been excited / assaulted.

According to Chris Scott, Physiotherapist, scar tissue management to reduce pain is one of the vital postoperative goals in order to return to full functional activities. This was covered in a later presentation.

Take Home Message:

  • The incidence of joint replacement is reaching epidemic proportions
  • Be Proactive – ensure that you remain physically healthy and active
  • Do not depend on the public health system to automatically be able to cater to your health needs

Have you received a joint replacement?

How has it influenced your life?

Want To Change Everything? – Ho’oponopono

 

Ho’oponopono Changes Everything

Ho'oponopono MantraI recently attended a four day seminar that was literally a life changer for me. Based on the soon-to-be-released book Becoming a Sun, the author David Karchere was also the main facilitator of the seminar. More of that in a later post, though.

 

For now, I am still really focused on the experiential work we did using the ancient Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgivenessHo’oponopono.

The Hawaiian Dictionary defines the practice of Ho’oponopono as mental cleansing: family conferences in which relationships were set right through prayer, discussion, confession, repentance, and mutual restitution and forgiveness.

The practice of Ho’oponopono is a tool for atonement, it corrects errors, restores and maintains good relationships among family members, erases the effects of past actions and memories that cause havoc and grief in our lives and the lives of others – by getting to the causes and sources of trouble.

The practice is so simple and the results so profound!

The four step Ho’oponopono process invokes the powerful forces of Repentance, Forgiveness, Gratitude and Love.

Step 1: Repentance – I am Sorry

    • This statement opens the door to atonement.  The moment you take responsibility for any negative manifestation you experience or witness you also create an opportunity for healing. 
    • The apology is an acknowledgement that we are sorry for whatever it is that we (or our ancestors before us) have done to cause the adverse circumstance to take place.

Step 2: Ask Forgiveness – Please Forgive Me

    • We ask for forgiveness with the absolute certainty that it has already been granted. 

Step 3: Gratitude – Thank You

    • Whatever your petition or concern, the moment you take responsibility for its occurrence and seek a way out–you are guaranteed a response.
    • Your “thank you” is the acknowledgement that your petition has been heard and acted upon.

Step 4: Love – I Love You

    • Love is a great healing power that reverberates through your psyche and generates an immediate feeling of well-being.
    • Say I LOVE YOU. Say it to your body, say it to God / The Powerful All That Is. Say I LOVE YOU to the air you breathe, to the house that shelters you. Say I LOVE YOU to your challenges. Say it over and over. Mean it. Feel it. There is nothing as powerful as Love.

The author Dr Joe Vitale heard about a Psychologist in Hawaii, Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len, who cured a complete ward of criminally insane patients – without ever seeing any of them, by using Ho’oponopono. When asked how he accomplished this, he explained “I just kept saying, ‘I’m sorry’ and ‘I love you’ over and over again”.

Joe Vitale went on to write a book with Dr Len, Zero Limits, in which Dr Len states:

“We are all responsible for everything that we see in our world. By taking full personal responsibility and then healing the wounded places within ourselves, we can literally heal ourselves and our world. Whenever a place for healing presents itself in your life, open to the place where the hurt resides within you. After identifying this place, with as much feeling as you can, say the below four statements:

  • I am sorry
  • Please forgive me
  • I love you
  • Thank you”

“Blame is far easier than total responsibility, but as I spoke with Dr Len, I began to realize that healing for him and in Ho’oponopono means loving yourself. If you want to improve your life, you have to heal your life. If you want to cure anyone – even a mentally ill criminal – you do it by healing you.

Turns out that loving yourself is the greatest way to improve yourself, and as you improve yourself, you improve your world.

Suffice it to say that whenever you want to improve anything in your life, there’s only one place to look: inside you. And when you look, do it with love.” – Joe Vitale.

I am truly grateful for learning about this process, and for all the opportunities where I shall be able to practice it.

Are you also ready to love yourself?

Are you ready to improve your world?
