Daily InspirationResearch indicates that happy people create happy relationships, not the other way around! If you believe you need a relationship to be happy, or the "right" relationship, you may stay stuck being unhappy. Unhappy people either don't get into relationships, or often create unhappy relationships. Put your energy into making yourself happy and then see what happens! By Dr. Margaret Paul
"Wonderful, incredible. Two major epiphanies; one was that my inner child requested a need for bonding from me, hence I now really get the workshop title "Inner Bonding". Two, was that the cherishing I have been feeling, I've missed all my life from my family, I can give to me. Thank you." Kripalu Workshop - Lenox, MA - 5/2001
"The strongest piece I received is how disconnected I am with my Inner Self and why. My commitment to myself is to work through the why - the fears. My hope is that once this happens, I will be able to stay in my body and be present. A process I will use. [Margaret was] great, interesting, entertaining, informative." Toronto Workshop, April, 2000
'A total discovery of recovery, healing and hope. It is a belief in the joy of the ability to become you.' Rowe, MA Workshop, 4/08
"I am intrigued by what I learned at the workshop and I look forward to going home and practicing the steps in the real world. I feel like I have the chance at finally finding true happiness and contentment. Rowe was a great place to learn!"
'I always had the need to heal myself. I have never been in therapy, and I had worked already somehow on Step 1, and in this Workshop, everything touched on my feelings. I feel I was meant to be here at this time; because this is the time that I think I have time to take care of myself with God's blessings. Will be following up with other workshop.' Kripalu Workshop, 9.12
As I've been frequenting the Inner Bonding web site, I'm connecting with like-minded people who are always eager to talk about the tremendous healing we're all creating for ourselves. Of course, support groups and one-on-one IB sessions with friends are extremely helpful. But the power of IB-ers gathering SOCIALLY surprised me this past weekend. When we realized there were at least SEVEN of us at a performance here in the Pioneer Valley, one of my friends turned to me, her face bright & full of joy, exclaiming, "My inner children are HAVING A BLAST!"
There's some indescribable power in knowing that you're "hanging out" with more than a handful of people who understand and are invested in this tremendous healing process! It's a glimpse into what it would be like to LIVE and play, day in and day out, with IB-ers, not just pre-arranged gatherings to do the "work." It's like IB DISNEYLAND! *Coming soon to a community near you!* (Or move here to the Pioneer Valley.)
