Daily InspirationWho makes your decisions - your wounded self or your loving Adult? You might want to notice that decisions made from your wounded self never turn out well. You will always be guided toward your highest good when your loving Adult is open to learning with Spirit about what is truly loving to you. By Dr. Margaret Paul
'Being here has been very Self-affirming. I feel as though I have taken action on what it means to love myself by being here. I am saying to my Inner Child - you matter, you're important, I love you and I am committed to taking care of you. I feel more responsible for myself and my feelings. I feel more capable of standing up for myself, and I feel empowered to let go of my addiction to approval from others.' Los Angeles Workshop, 1/09
'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
"It was a chance to assimilate a variety of tools I've accumulated over the past few years and see how they can all be used together. It's so great to let go of pain and let peace come in. It was really helpful to see people go through the process; quite often they did my work for me." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 10/09
"I think this workshop is phenomenal. I thoroughly enjoyed Margaret's energy & knowledge. Nancy was very helpful & supportive as well. I enjoyed both the experiential & didactic parts of the workshop." Rowe, MA Workshop, 4/08
'Very, very enlightening! I was able to have insights about myself and my childhood that I have not had in 10 years of self-study. What a brilliant, beautiful process. I look forward to seeing the amazing, positive changes that will happen in my life as I continue to practice Inner Bonding and nurturing my Inner Child. Thank you!' Kripalu Workshop, 9.10
"I came in so heavy with emotional pain and am leaving feeling so light. I've had a major shift in attitude regarding myself and more importantly regarding God. I now feel compassionate toward myself and open to receive 'Guidance.' Thank you for honoring your Guidance so that this material could be channeled to us who so desperately need it." Rowe Weekend Workshop, 5/06
