Five Tips for Inner Repair
1.Pick one challenging area
How do you feel about yourself? What is your inner self-talkin this area? Are you judging yourself, someoneelse, the world? What do you fear others are saying about you?
Observe your thoughts and feelings.
Adopt the position of neutrality. Pretend you are scientistwatching a specimen under a microscope. Approach yourbehavior, thoughts and feelings as "Oh, that'sinteresting."Do not assign meaning.
3.Stop taking life personally
Take a nice deep breath and repeat, "This is not about me.I don't need to control this."Entertain the thought that everything is FOR you, not against you.
4.Accept your feelings
Make them OK. Feelings are energy, notenemies. Stop judging your feelings and allow them to be.
5.Make different choices
Is there a different choice I could make in this situation?What outer step supports that new behavior?
Adjust your inner lens slightly and you have a different viewthat creates lasting change. Practice new choices with patienceand soon your career, marriage, finances and healthwill work for you and life will be rich in abundance and loving.

Afraid of The Light?

Financial freedom is not about having enough money to spend to your heart's delight, without seeing red. It is freedom from the control of money; freedom from being a slave to money.
Never Jump to Conclusions
Human mind which is well known as a fluctuating prodigy presumes itself to be a great judge.
