Daily InspirationAsk yourself 100 times today, "What is in my highest good right now?" In this moment, do you need to work, exercise or rest? Do you need to eat or stop eating? Do you need to offer caring or support to someone? Do you need to speak up for yourself with someone? Asking what is in your highest good will keep you connected with Spirit and on track in taking loving action for yourself and with others. By Dr. Margaret Paul
'I have tried many healing methods and spiritual paths, and nothing has ever given me so much personal empowerment to heal myself and be responsible for myself. The process is inspired yet concrete and totally applicable in everyday life.' LA Workshop, 3.7.10
"The workshop was a wonderful description and reminder of a powerful and
effective healing process for our wounded selves. It's a complete process that
can be done by ourselves as a daily practice as well as being facilitated by
another person." Rowe, MA, 4/04
'I have known and read the Inner Bonding books, but this experience created the pathway for me to see how I can do the work on my own. Also in the safe, trusting environment I was able to allow or be willing to learn about a core wound that I had not connected to before. Profound - Thank you!' Dr. Margaret's love & compassion is incredible. Thank you for all that you do.' Week-end workshop - Anaheim Hills, CA 2.15
'For anyone who is put off by the idea of 'spiritual' or 'higher power' - DON'T BE! This workshop effectively helps you connect with your own wisdom from which it is so common to feel separated.' LA Workshop, 3.7.10
'Dr. Margaret Paul is a beautiful, spiritual being who held a grounded & safe space for people to open. I loved her down-to-earth approach, allowing each person to have their own guidance & experience. It was a great way to get reconnected with my younger self & solidify the bond.' Week-end Workshop - Anaheim Hills, CA 2.15
"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!"
Heal the cycle of shame and self-abandonment that leads to anxiety, depression, addiction, aloneness and relationship failure. Discover how to love yourself rather than reject yourself, and learn to make your best decisions through consistent connection with your personal source of spiritual guidance.
The innovative Inner Bonding process shows you how to:
- Rapidly heal false beliefs about yourself, others and God
- Heal guilt, shame, emptiness and aloneness
- Move beyond self-judgment into self-compassion
- Address the resistance that may be keeping you stuck
- Learn how to heal relationship conflicts and attain the intimacy you've always wanted
This powerful and life-changing process is the result of Dr. Margaret's 48 years of personal inner work and work with her clients.
Unless you were raised by parents or caregivers who were loving to themselves, each other and to you, you may not have learned how to lovingly manage your painful feelings. As a result, you may be operating from your ego wounded self, controlled by your fears and false beliefs.
Your wounded self may often take over in unloving ways, trampling on your hurts, ignoring them or avoiding them with various addictions and controlling behavior such as:
- Addictions to drugs, food, nicotine, alcohol, relationships, work, TV or video games.
- Co-dependence - trying to control others with anger, violence, guilt or compliance - making others responsible for your sense of safety and worth.
- Staying in your head rather than being present in your body
- Self-judgment, shaming yourself
- Obsessive thinking, ruminating
- Resistance to self, others, Spirit - to taking loving care of yourself
These forms of self-abandonment perpetuate fears of rejection, abandonment, aloneness, engulfment or failure, which heal through the practice of Inner Bonding.
Through discussions, exercises and direct work with Dr. Margaret Paul or other Inner Bonding Facilitators, you learn the Six powerful Steps of Inner Bonding.
"Transformational Beyond Words! My heart and soul and true essence overflow with love and gratitude. I'm so eager and excited to go home and do Inner Bonding, and share this with my husband and son, and most of all MYSELF at any given moment." Kripalu Workshop, 9/08, Margaret Dean Godhard, Mom, Educator, Gainesville, GA
