07. Escaping Our Inner Prison to Return to Our True Selves
Summary Part of being human is forgetting who we truly are and forgetting our divine purpose on this planet. This "forgetting" starts early and continues throughout adulthood until we are so far from our essential Truth that we have no clue how to navigate back to our center. If we're lucky, we are able to recall a semblance of who we once were before the layers and layers of story, expectation, and false narratives were laid upon us. If we're even more lucky, we begin to call forth the...

04. The Overlooked Key to Healing Ourselves
SUMMARY The process of healing is delicately complex. One of the components of healing that goes unmentioned in the western world is that of "envisioning" one's healing. This goes beyond merely the power of positive thinking. This isn't about false belief. It's about calling in a possibility that lives in the myriad of potential outcomes; one of those outcomes is to be completely healed of your affliction. The more we can connect with this possibility, the more clear our vision becomes of...
03: Completion: Why Some People Achieve It and Some Don't

Some of us only want to do the fun stuff and aren't willing to push through the boring and tedious parts of our passions and pursuits. Does it take a "special" kind of person to...
02: Getting Free From Limiting Perceptions, Stories and Beliefs
