Daily Inspiration

What is more important to you in this moment - loving yourself and sharing your love with others, or trying to have control over not getting hurt - feeling safe from being rejected, smothered, taken advantage of, and from failure or loss? Today, make love your highest priority and notice how happy you feel!

"I really enjoyed the loving relationships course and it taught me a lot. I was really looking forward to my daily email and it felt like I was really doing something loving for myself. The structure and format of daily emails, with videos and visualizations is really 'rich' in information, teachings and insights. The forum which Margaret monitors regularly offers a great way to connect with others, learn with and from others as well as getting Margaret's and other participants' replies, pretty much instantly. Usually people sign up to a course like this, I know I did, because something does not quite work well and often we can feel lonely with our issue and isolated. To have the emails and the forum was a wonderful way to keep me 'connected' and kept me through a difficult time. Finally, the weekly coaching calls, again, are such a wonderful tool and I was so grateful to hear my questions answered by Margaret directly. It is great value for the money and a great investment." 4.14

“In her magnificent new work, Diet for Divine Connection, Dr. Margaret Paul has given us deep and immediate access to the unshakable foundations of inner security, vitality and a high-frequency consciousness. Only with these foundations can we experience the happiness and authentic success we desire and deserve in our lives. She shares not only from her vast expertise and decades of work, research and practice, but from the source of wisdom itself, which can only be accessed by someone who has embodied and lived all she offers to others---her book is a rare and potent transmission that will heal, integrate and ignite your mind, body, heart and soul into wholeness.”

'I have done Inner Child work before using John Bradshaw's materials, and seen a practitioner who does Inner Child work.  This workshop has given me the tools to process through the feelings that have lead to my withdrawing from life.  The principles taught are in agreement with the spiritual beliefs I already hold.  This adds to my spiritual growth as well as help with my emotional growth.' Los Angeles Workshop, 1/09
Steve Hall

"I intuitively knew this was the workshop for me.  It more than met my expectations.  I've never heard a facilitator take the words right out of my mouth and realize that she had gone through the exact same reactions, feelings, experiences in her relationships and not only her but all or almost all of us here at the workshop.  Thank you Dr. Margaret for creating the open, safe space.  I love your directness!  'Thank you.'" Art of Living, 5.18

"Very helpful to walk through the six steps so thoroughly and in community. I enjoyed the verbal explanation, followed by the modeling, followed by the practicing. Very thorough." Los Angeles, May 2000
