Daily Inspiration

Today, consciously choose to be non-reactive in situations that normally push your buttons. Choose to remain silent rather than argue your point. Choose to listen rather than interrupt. Choose to accept rather than judge. Choose to tell your truth rather than be invisible. Choose to care about another rather than resist being controlled. Choose to learn rather than protect when your buttons are pushed.

"I actually enjoyed the course a lot. I must confess, I was skeptical of how much more I would actually learn about IB after having read the free online IB course, read lots of articles on the website, listened to almost all the webinars available, bought and used the SelfQuest software etc. But I was pleasantly surprised how this course answered lots of questions I still had on IB and on how the detailed guidance through visualizations and text helped me through the IB process. The forum and coaching calls were an additional bonus, either as a form of getting questions answered or hearing other people with similar questions. In fact they gave you a feeling that you are not alone. It was interesting to notice how by doing this course together we all sort of stumbled across the same questions and struggles as we were going through the same process. This was a comforting thought throughout the 30 days of the course. Thanks!!" 9/13

"Margaret is an inspirational person that proves how powerful her teachings are just by meeting her. she is a true angel for this worl. I love how we can have a guideline (The Six Steps) that we can take with us throughout our life as a tool to become a better person in all areas." Kripalu 9.18




“Stel is very informative, professional, loving, kind, caring, and patient.  Stel knows what she is talking about.  Her helper Sharon and Karen are two lovely ladies.  They all made me feel safe.  I feel wonderful finding my little me.  I would do this again.”  11/2018

“This is the best 30 day Inner Bonding course I have taken with Dr. Margaret Paul so far. It’s the best because it explores all the usual love yourself concepts and themes like essence, gratitude and intrinsic self worth but from the perspective of frequency. Frequency in my opinion is the core of an inner Bonding practice as from my experience it’s what makes Inner Bonding the powerful healing modality that it is. The best part of the course is Dr Paul’s explanations of the Law of Attraction and Affirmations as these ideas are often oversimplified elsewhere. Dr Paul coaches the group in a way that we can’t help but be moved and shaped towards becoming better loving human beings despite our resistance, addictions and compulsive behaviours, whatever they may be and however they may have become embedded in our wounded selves. The course is a shake up and move along for the whole system and I can’t recommend it enough.”

"The workshop was very supportive and sincere. The experience was very nurturing. It helped shed a lot of light on the dynamics of the reason and feeling phenomena and what their purposes are. I really liked the emphasis on the spiritual aspect." Los Angeles, CA - September 2001
