Daily InspirationThe challenge for all of us is to stay openhearted in the face of another's closed heart. We want to close our heart to protect against the pain of loneliness and helplessness, but when we close our heart we end up feeling alone and empty. Today, challenge yourself to embrace the core feelings of loneliness and helplessness over others rather than abandon yourself. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"[The Inner Bonding Workshop] put me back on the path of doing the work and will move me past the 'stuck' place I was in!"
Workshop at Kripalu in MA, July, 1999
"I feel a wonderful sense of being taken care of, of being loved and full of joy and it came from within me. Getting in touch with my personal power is awesome."
"I now have a process for what had been a very haphazard and only partially successful means for understanding myself. Hopefully, this is just a beginning and the six steps will lead to action. Margaret: you are terrific, talented, insightful, with an excellent ability to turn a desperate group of people into an engaged, cohesive unit."
"Wonderful learning experience by a joyful, loving teacher. Thanks for enlightening me in your special way, that brought what I've learned before in a clear and inviting way that I hope I will incorporate in my daily ritual."
Toronto Workshop, April, 2000
"This has been an amazing experience. My awareness of my part in my last relationship has increased a lot, as has my awareness of how badly I treat myself. I am hopeful about continued healing and learning to love myself and others and not give myself away (or throw myself away)!" L.A. Workshop, 1/08
"I learned that it is important to honor your inner child and to access your higher power/Spirit on a regular basis. This is critical if we want to find a true balance in our life." LA Workshop 9-10/01

- Without learning how to love yourself, the anxiety, depression, and empty
hole inside you will continue to grow, no matter how much sex you have, food
you eat, drugs you take, alcohol you drink, money you make, success you
achieve, attention and admiration you receive, or how many things you buy,
children you have, or marriages you have.
- "[After one month on the member site] I just can't believe the improvement in my heart , the lack of anxiety and depression, and i'm just so thankful for this place to come to get nurturance an support and guidance. "
- "I was looking for something to take away the emptiness I felt inside. I have found it. It has helped me so much in my life and I am looking forward going deeper and deeper into it."
- "Bless you and Dr. Erika for Inner Bonding! I feel as if I have found a process that will truly help me to heal, after decades of therapy, self-help, 12-Step programs, medication, etc. The 12-Step programs are wonderful, and the medicines are a means, not an end. The Inner Bonding, I feel, is a key to healing."
- Without learning how to manage your own feelings, the power struggles, arguments, disconnection and distance with your spouse, children, friends and co-workers will continue to get worse and worse.
- "I wish everyone on the planet could understand the value of this site. It is the best thing that has ever happened in my life. I am so very grateful it exists and to the people who run the programs. Thank you very much."
- "The value I've gained since becoming a member is immeasurable. My marriage is improving, I'm a better parent, and I've stopped drinking! I practice IB consistently and it's paying off!"
- Without developing a powerful loving adult self, you
will continue to lose yourself, your relationship, your health, your
aliveness, passion, joy, inner peace, and creativity.
- “After ten years of therapy and countless workshops, I still did not have the sense of self and wholeness I knew I needed for a truly joyful life. Since I had tried everything, I had no idea how to proceed. Inner Bonding gave me the precious missing pieces of an “inner bond” – an internal system that is at last in place and joyfully intact.”
- "With IB I find not only myself healing but my own kids are daily becoming happier and healthier. How grateful can a person be for that? I find the daily support of the website extremely important."
- Without healing your wounded self, you will continue to be manipulated and controlled by others, and continue to experience guilt, shame, and emotional abuse.
- "I'm grateful for the results i am already seeing in and around me. My relationships with people are changing--for the (much) better. I'm truly grateful for the warmth, honesty, insight, intelligence, and intentions of Margaret and crew, and every one of you lovely Inner Bonders."
- Without deep healing, the abundance available to you through the Law of Attraction will likely continue to elude you.
- "I'm wondering how I've lived so long without it. I can't tell you how valuable I believe this site is. I truly believe it is in the top ten significant contributions to the planet.
- Without developing your personal spiritual connection, momentary pleasure is all you will ever experience - never true joy. Without full access to your spiritual guidance, what you have right now is likely as good as it gets.
- "I think your Inner Bonding work is one of the most significant contributions to this planet I have ever seen. People can heal, love and live life as happy whole spiritual beings. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your work."
