Daily InspirationMany people seem to feel entitled to get what they want at the expense of others. People with an entitlement issue often attract those with a caretaking issue. The person with the entitlement issue believes he or she deserves to take from others, while the caretaker believes he or she deserves to be taken from. Neither are taking loving care of themselves. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"At the workshop I learned a great deal about the process and how to apply it in every day life. My experience with Spirit has been a close connection in times of trauma but this weekend I was reminded how to deeply connect with Spirit in times of Joy! The very next day, after packing all my things, I took a big risk [Stephani is disabled and confined to a wheelchair] and moved to Utah. I was driving by myself in the car (for 14 hours) and I began thinking about the workshop and this new process. I felt empowered by the process eough to make this life change. It was a huge deal to me to commit to driving that long by myself, not knowing what wheelchair access nightmares I might encounter. My cellular phone gave a sense of security. I knew as I drove along, that if any problem arose I could just call for help. Soon after driving through Las Vegas, I noticed the PacBell icon had disappeared from the LCD on my phone. Curious, I tried calling someone. The phone was out of service. For the next couple of hours my insurance policy was gone! This is very scary for a woman traveling alone. It then occurred to me that I was not alone. I called on Spirit and my Guides to be with me in the car. We dialogued about all the fears that were triggered and about my feeling of helplessness in taking care of myself in an emergency. I made it safely to Utah, feeling a lot stronger and more self-assured that I could handle it. I am handling it and I don't have to handle it alone!"
"I found it very helpful and I gained a new inner awareness about myself. I learned so much about myself and my behaviors and got real concrete tools on how to be focused on taking care of myself."
"After 25 years of work/searching (primal, Jungian, rebirthing, bioenergetics, etc.) I feel open to shifting gears and using Inner Bonding as a 'day to day/moment to moment' vehicle for change. Margaret, thank you for your loving presence, abundant energy and clear presentation of a simple but comprehensive model for change."
"I found this workshop to be very informative, supportive, and just what I needed at this time in my life! All the information given and shared was extremely helpful in learning the Inner Bonding experience more fully. I definitely recommend this workshop!" L.A. Weekend Workshop, 11/04
'As a 15 year old going to this Workshop with my Mom, I was obviously skeptical about whether it would be a huge waste of time or not. But after meeting some of the people and getting to know them, I realized that my age changed nothing. I was treated the same way. And I guess that made me open enough to get what I needed out of the experience. I feel so much more mentally prepared to take things on and I never thought I'd have that.' Rowe, MA Workshop, 5.12
"I found the 30 Day Love Yourself course really helpful....It was really eye opening....It has given me a real sense of power....I had read about loving yourself, and it seemed like an easy principle, but I would try and didn't really know how! So this is a great way to learn how and understand what steps you need to take to get there....I am very satisfied with this course and I think I will start at the beginning again to really cement what I have learned." 11.13
What is Inner Bonding?
INNER BONDING is an easy-to-learn system, a Six Step roadmap that, when practiced, brings rapid healing of the fears and false beliefs that control our lives. Practicing INNER BONDING offers a clear direction toward becoming loving to ourselves and others. Healing deep issues through INNER BONDING results in the peace, joy, fulfillment, empowerment, and emotional freedom that we all seek but find so illusive.
INNER BONDING is a process that leads to loving yourself through teaching you how to take 100% responsibility for your own feelings and needs. Self-abandonment is the core issue behind anxiety, depression, anger, addictions, relationship problems, and parenting problems. Self-abandonment leads to feeling like a victim, while Inner Bonding leads to emotional freedom and personal empowerment.
INNER BONDING is an easy-to-learn system, a roadmap presenting clear steps that, when practiced, brings rapid results in understanding our feelings and behavior, resolving our fears and false beliefs that control our lives, and gives us clear direction toward becoming loving to ourselves and others. Healing our deeper issues through INNER BONDING results in the peace, joy, fulfillment and empowerment that we all seek but find so elusive.
INNER BONDING is a powerful six-step mind/body/spirit healing process that will transform your life by teaching you to:
- Recognize your true worth
- Discover your passion and purpose in life
- Take loving care of your heart, mind, body, and spirit
- Take responsibility for your own feelings of pain and joy, safety and worth
- Create deeply satisfying and enduring love relationships
INNER BONDING is not just another technique to solve problems - it is a deep healing process that leads to connection with self, others, and Divine Love. INNER BONDING works, regardless of one's spiritual or religious background or how severely one was abused, neglected, or indulged as a child.
There is a paradox that has kept many people from complete healing: We cannot experience deep spiritual connection until we love ourselves, but we cannot love ourselves until we experience the love that comes from a deep spiritual connection. In other words, love of self -- which is what Divine love teaches us -- is a prerequisite to self-growth.
INNER BONDING goes to the heart of this paradox. It is a simple yet sophisticated system that:
- Teaches you how to establish a deep daily personal connection and dialogue with a loving source of spiritual guidance.
- Frees your essence -- your core Self, the light within -- and fills your heart with love.
- Heals the false beliefs of your wounded self - your wounded inner child -- beliefs that are the source of the fear, pain, and relationship problems in your life.
- Develops a powerful adult self who can take loving action for yourself and with others.
Traditional psychology has centered on becoming aware of and healing our difficult and painful feelings and behavior. Spirituality has stressed connection with God. Neither has helped individuals to develop a personally-responsible loving Adult capable of healing the pain of the past, bringing joy in the present, and connecting with our spiritual Guidance. This is the major component missing from most other self-help processes. Individuals find that, while many processes bring short-term relief, they may not change the quality of life. INNER BONDING does.
Our society is evolving toward a more spiritual solution to our problems, a solution that has not been offered by either psychology or religion. People are recognizing that life is empty without the spiritual dimension, but religion has not always provided that. INNER BONDING differentiates between the earthly and the spiritual, between love intended to get and love intended to give, between power over others and power within self. It provides a much-needed process for moving out of fear and into love, out of the need to control and into trust so you can weather the storms of everyday life and embrace the sacred privilege of life on this planet.
INNER BONDING is built upon the concept of intent. Our intent is our deepest desire, our primary motivation. There are only two possible intents we can have in any given moment: the intent to protect ourselves from pain or the intent to learn about loving. Our culture operates on the earthly premise that joy is found in avoiding pain and seeking pleasure. When we shift to the spiritual perspective, we operate from the premise that true peace and joy come from an intent to be a loving human being.
