Daily InspirationThe avoidance of loneliness, heartbreak and helplessness over others and outcomes is often at the root of controlling, compliant, resistant or addictive behavior. It is helpful to learn to name the feeling we are trying to avoid. When we name it, we can allow it, acknowledge it, embrace it, bring love and compassion to it, and then release it to Spirit. Denying it keeps us stuck. Naming it allows us to manage it, release it and take loving action in our own behalf. By Dr. Margaret Paul
'I learned the difference between my wounded self & my inner child, the difference between answers, & learning by doing the work, & direct knowing. The difference between taking, giving & sharing love, the intention behind my actions to gain control to get love, avoid pain & feel safe. I know I have a lot to do, but as Margaret said it is never too late.' Weekend Workshop - Anaheim Hills, CA 3.14
"The 30 days Love Yourself course with Dr. Margaret Paul was just what I was needing: a deep practical learning on the technique (IB), which I could fit smoothly into my busy schedule and still undergo profound personal transformation. It changed the way I see myself and the light under which I see my past, acquiring a whole new meaning! I will treasure the lessons and the support Dr. Margaret personally gave each of us on such important matters of life." ~Sigrid, 4.15
"My wife and I came together. She had read the "Do I Have To Give Up Me To Be Loved By God?" book and thought she would like me to come. I began reading and decided, after reading the section on resistance that there would be something for me to learn here. I have found that to be so. I learned about my feelings of abandonment and that has been helpful. I see value in continuing to work on myself in this way. Thank you." Toronto Workshop - Toronto, Canada - 4/2001
"I now have some tools to look into the places within myself that always used to feel unsafe. Margaret is a giant of the heart. I have now seen someone model what it is to be committed to healing and growth.
'Eye-opening - incredibly insightful. I finally feel like I have taken responsibility for loving myself by committing to this weekend. I truly did not realize how much worth I put on external factors to define my worth.' Kripalu Workshop, 9.12
'Margaret is a truly gifted Facilitator working with a transforming body of work. I've been on a journey of personal discovery for almost 20 years, but got insights from this workshop which were new and insightful for the first time. I actually went somewhere in the guided meditation on day one and on day two I was able to have an inner dialogue I've not experienced before. This was very meaningful. I also enjoyed and got great benefit from the breakout sessions with my group.' LA Workshop, 3.7.10
