SHE CHOOSES HER NEXT LIFE VISION

SHE CHOOSES HER NEXT LIFE VISION

By Lauren Goldstein


"What do I want? Those four little words were something that I never really gave any great thought to until about eight months ago.


I finally realized that I had spent the past 29 years of my life on auto-pilot without really noticing it. Then someone asked me what I wanted, and I was lost. I had no idea where to start.


I guess sometimes in order to start, you have to go back, so let me take you back in time to where my first life dream began.


I was four years old and sitting on the plush carpet of my bedroom with my childhood dog, Murphy, sitting patiently in front of me. A stethoscope was in my ears as I listened intently to his heart, with a line of stuffed animal patients waiting for Dr. Lauren to check them next. I was practicing being a doctor on this captive audience since it was what I wanted to be when I grew up.


Well, I thought I wanted to be a doctor; I really just wanted to help people. So at the ripe age of four, I thought it was my only option in life and it stuck. It stuck until I was 24.


But all of that was about to change on this February morning."


Have you had a life dream abruptly change - and then felt lost as you created a new one? Read Lauren's exploration of discovering what she wanted in her life NOW that was ultimately a better fit for her life and heart.

SHE SURRENDERS TO NOT KNOWING THE PATH AHEAD

SHE SURRENDERS TO NOT KNOWING THE PATH AHEAD

By Erika Elmuts


"My husband woke up, turned over in bed, and announced our marriage was over.


In a matter of days, I had packed up my entire life, moved myself and my daughter into a new home, regrouped, and began anew. I had gone from having a roof over my head, a partner who supported my vision, and being able to focus on being a mom and building my business, to having less than five months of living expenses in the bank from my marriage settlement.


At the time of that unexpected divorce, I had thankfully discovered my life's purpose and passion: helping families live healthier and more abundant lives. I was a regularly featured expert on local news stations in San Diego. I had been on a national television talk show and numerous radio shows, and was collaborating with other thought leaders in my industry.


The seeds I had planted in the early years had begun to sprout, and it was an exciting time.


After my divorce, I continued to follow my business plan, which was to continue to build my online community of parents and launch my parenting course that I had been working on for almost a year. I had more television and radio appearances. I was interviewed on NBC's The Today Show, and The New York Times asked me to write an article.


I saw all of those opportunities as a sign that I was in alignment with what I was here to contribute to the world, and my task was to show up, work, and trust what came my way.


I had lined up four massive opportunities. If any one of these four came to fruition, I would be in great financial shape. Except that didn’t happen.


I went from being hopeful, empowered, excited, and eager, to not sleeping a wink at night, judging myself harshly for being in this situation, questioning my path, and feeling desperate."


When survival is on the line, it is easy to sink down into despair and feeling powerless. Yet Erika proceeded ahead with a focus on her core values and priorities, which helped guide her through this time. Discover what she did and how it could help you on your path during times of uncertainty, too.

SHE OPENS TO THE POWER OF HER FEMININITY

SHE OPENS TO THE POWER OF HER FEMININITY

By Alice Brooking


"So here I sit, a 24 year old pregnant woman who is finally embracing what it means to step into herself and the sacred feminine energy.


The continuous journey of self-discovery has led me down many interesting pathways, though they all lead to the same destination... love.


When I was growing up, I had some serious issues with becoming a woman. I couldn't stand it when my mother said “bra” or “bikini.” In short, anything that represented womanhood would bring up feelings of shame. I would stare at myself in the mirror and feel a deep-seated guilt for being in a woman’s body.


In my teen years I had no respect for myself. I just didn't care. I was ungrounded, drinking too much, doing too many substances, and eating terrible food, all with the mindset of “woe is me.”


I began to hear the whispers of my heart again. It took me a little while to listen to the gentle voice of my intuition but I finally heard it.


It was time to start respecting myself."


What happened next as Alice moved into embracing her feminine power and self more fully? Read how her willingness to love herself more prepared her for the joy of becoming a mom and the next important phase of her life.

She Face Her Feelings of Failure

Posted on September 2, 2017 at 4:50 PM

SHE FACES HER FEELINGS OF FAILURE

By Devon Telberg


"There really isn’t any particular event that could be called a tragedy in my life, yet I’m able to talk about failure because enough events have happened that have caused me months and years of thinking about it.


At 12 years old, my childhood friend publicly rejected me, and I spent the next year and a half eating lunch in a bathroom stall to avoid the cafeteria.


At 16 years old, my first boyfriend dumped me for no reason and triggered another year and a half of feeling alone and lonely.


There have been many other stories in my life with the feelings of failure: losing a job, being really poor, losing another relationship. Every few years something happened in my life to trigger a feeling of deep hopelessness and loneliness.


Most recently, it was losing two jobs and not being able to find anyone who believed in my abilities.


Writing about the failures in my life makes me feel that they should be over, and that I should have grown past them. But I haven’t.


The reason I spend so much time in a perceptible depression is actually me holding on to the experiences to analyze them, and make sure they never happen again. I want to be beyond that failed relationship, that failed job, and that failed situation. I have had to take a lot of breaks from being employed just to deal with my emotions; even I can see it’s not very constructive.


Perhaps I’m too thoughtful for my own good. I’m smart, capable, sufficient, and strong; but I have felt completely debilitated when overly focused on my disappointments.


It has gotten to the point where it’s overwhelming me."


So how does Devon move through these inner feelings? She connects with a new understanding of her struggles that will hopefully inspire you on your path, too.

She Rewrites Her Life with Ho'Oponopono

She Rewrites Her Life with Ho’Oponopono

by Teresa Leming


“Another night of “The Crying Game.”


Not the 1992 box office hit; more like a pathetic after-school special called, “Her Puffy Eyes.” Other titles of my relationship films could be "It’s All His Fault" and "He Did It To Me."


The leading men who were cast in these gut-wrenching dramas would include my absent biological father; my overly strict, abusive step-father; my first boyfriend; my first unfaithful husband; the random men between husband number one and sexually confused husband number two; and then a couple of major disappointments after that.


The heroine of every one of these blockbusters was me: Teresa the Crazy, an irrational, obsessive and an overly insecure woman that progressively mastered self-desecration.


And the predictable finale of each one of these encounters included explosions, dramatics, and emotional hysterics (3D glasses included at no extra charge).


Even as the leading male role changed, I stuck with the same ending of being the victim.


If I continued to blame “him,” then I did not have to acknowledge my own role in the ongoing drama.


Thankfully I had a huge breakthrough in 2009 around my relationship patterns that led me to change my unconscious habits and heal deeply with profound gratitude.”


And oh, how this story takes a significant shift as Teresa becomes a whole new heroine in her life!


With the help of an ancient Hawaiian prayer, she changes her inner self talk and relationship patterns with forgiveness and compassion. Learn how you can release the patterns that no longer serve you as you read how Teresa connected with her spiritual nature on deeper levels.

She Takes Steps Into Her Higher Self

She Takes Steps Into Her Higher Self

by Debora Kiyono


“This is not what we agreed. You are not honoring your word.”


I spoke in a very calm, firm and strong voice to Emi. These words were not part of the speech I had in mind.


However, they were effective; she heard me.I had gone over to Emi’s place in order to say in person what I had already texted her: that I didn’t have the time to do what she was asking, that I wasn’t obliged to do things for her, and that she was not respecting me.


But again, she just ignored what I said. She insisted that I was the only one who could help her because I was single and had no kids. It made me really angry that she thought that I did not have anything else to do but be at her service.


I was about to lose control when my Inner Self, the deeper part of me that was paying attention to what was going on, saw the great opportunity to take over. That’s when those spontaneous words came out: “You are not honoring your word.”


Unknowingly, I had said the magic words.


For a few seconds there was silence in the room. Emi’s eyes were wide in astonishment.


All of a sudden, the discussion turned in a different direction and took on a different tone.”


As you’ll discover, Debora tapped into a deeper reason why she was meant to stand her ground and it led her on a new path of self-discovery and spiritual understanding.


Continue reading her chapter in our book to learn more about how to step into your higher self with love and strength.

She Embraces the Gift of the Deer

She Embraces the Gift of the Deer

by Connie Cole


A string of abusive relationships had left me shattered; low self-esteem and negative self-talk had been my companions for many years. Although participation in a spiritual community had helped alleviate much of the negativity, the same old issues lingered under the surface.


After moping around the house and spending way too much time in that negative head space, I decided to go for a drive. The least I could do for myself was to enjoy the beauty of Austin’s hills on this sunny day.


I felt drawn to drive on Bee Cave Road, to enjoy its winding curves and the beautiful scenery of the Texas hill country; to feel connected to the land and the beauty of the earth.


As I drove, I noticed along the road that a deer had been hit by a car and apparently had died quite recently. I acknowledged its presence with a small prayer and kept driving.


Suddenly, I heard a Voice say, “Go back and pick up that deer.”



Connie then finds herself doing many unexpected things as she listens to the Voice with surrender and courage. Continue reading to see how this amazing day in Connie's life unfolds in memorable, magical ways.

She Awakens to Her Soul's Talents

She Awakens to Her Soul’s Talents

by Lorraine Paul


"If you had told me that two well-groomed eyebrows would lead to the final realization that my marriage of 19 years was over, I would have thought you were absolutely nuts.


But as I sat at dinner with my husband, the waiter standing at our table had the most incredible eyebrows - and I could hear his thoughts.


My husband turned to me, dismay and confusion on his face. “Why did you start talking about the guy’s eyebrows?”


I was surprised. “He clearly said he shouldn’t have waxed his eyebrows and I tried to reassure him. I’m not exactly sure what’s wrong with that!”


“You’re crazy!” My husband looked away, shaking his head in disgust at me.


I realized I had heard the waiter telepathically, yet the waiter didn’t look at me like I was crazy.


More unsettling to me though, was that my husband and I were on opposite sides of the table on an issue yet again.


I made it through the rest of that meal with a soft veil of tears that came from years of hurt and humiliation. I decided then and there that I would not suffer through any more years of heartache, scorn, and disrespect with this man."


As her story unfolds, Lorraine shares how she grew spiritually in a number of ways that revealed how she and her husband were moving in very different directions. She was ready to claim more of her soul talents by opening up to angels, numerology, Reiki, and deeper soul guidance as she stepped forward into a new, truer life.

She Begins Hearing Her Soul

Posted on June 28, 2017 at 9:50 AM

She Begins Hearing Her Soul

by Isabella Aponte 


“I attended an all-girls Catholic High School in Philadelphia. We wore maroon jumpsuits that were forbidden to rise above the knee.


My mom is a devout Catholic with a large portrait of the Virgin Mary hanging in our dining room; crosses hung above every door. My father’s mentor and role model was a Catholic priest. Not only did I have to confess my sins to Father George on a weekly basis, but I was also scolded if I ever missed church or even showed up late.


I was not given any option on what to believe or how to live my life, other than the teachings of the Catholic Church; it was the religion of my family, and therefore my religion, as well.


Even after spending eight years at a Catholic elementary school, I still had so many unanswered questions.


What if I wasn’t sure what I believed exactly?

Why were my doubts met with reprimands as opposed to information?


I remember going home after an especially hard day in religion class and telling my parents that I was unsure if I really wanted to be a Catholic.


While they were extremely disappointed, they were more baffled than anything. They never expected me or my sisters to question their lifelong beliefs.


What I really wanted was just to have options in what I learned about life, options about what I believed, and options on how I lived my life.”


As her story unfolds, Isabella discovers hearing her soul for the first time as she moves to different cities and begins to ask deeper questions about her path.
