Daily Inspiration

Let your doing be an expression of your being, rather than a definition of your being. If you let go of attaching the outcome to your happiness and worth, and you put forth effort and allow the process to joyfully unfold, then there is no failure. Failure is a concept attached to outcomes, not to effort and process.

By Dr. Margaret Paul

'Very, very enlightening!  I was able to have insights about myself and my childhood that I have not had in 10 years of self-study.  What a brilliant, beautiful process.  I look forward to seeing the amazing, positive changes that will happen in my life as I continue to practice Inner Bonding and nurturing my Inner Child.  Thank you!'  Kripalu Workshop, 9.10

"Inestimable value. It provides the truth; the truth necessary for any healing work to be effective; the framework to ensure that whatever tools you work are applied with the right intent. Thank you for helping to birth this work and for continuing to offer your gift to others. Very nice work you're doing!"

'I wanted to attend this workshop, no obstacle would have prevented me from attending.  At the workshop I was able to immerse myself in the process, previously, I only read the instructions on your website.  I specifically liked learning about all of the ways that we deny ownership & responsibility for our Inner Child, and all of the ways we can integrate this Inner Child into our lives.  I did benefit in understanding dynamics of relationships much better, and in understanding false belief systems and how they sabotage our happiness.  I would recommend the Workshop because it is excellent for achieving awareness of how to evolve into a better person.  I am grateful for this experience.  It has opened up my understanding of my life.' Los Angeles Weekend Workshop, 3.11

'This was truly a life awakening experience for my sister and I.  Being scared but okay to open up was challenging but extremely rewarding.  I can't wait to take these tools and apply to my life at home. Margaret was fantastic and I felt her care for each one of us was sincere and true.'  Weekend Workshop - Kripalu, Lenox, MA 9.14

Inner Bonding


Aloneness is a very painful feeling that results from the disconnection with ourselves and a source of spiritual Guidance. Inner Bonding is a powerful process for healing this disconnection, thus healing aloneness. When we are inwardly and spiritually connected, we can be alone without feeling alone.


NNER BONDING is a process that leads to loving yourself through teaching you how to take 100% responsibility for your own feelings and needs. Self-abandonment is the core issue behind anxiety, depression, anger, addictions, relationship problems, and parenting problems. Self-abandonment leads to feeling like a victim, while Inner Bonding leads to emotional freedom and personal empowerment.

Inner Bonding was created in 1988 by Dr. Margaret Paul and Dr. Erika Chopich. INNER BONDING is a transformational six-step spiritual pathway that creates a powerful connection with your core Self and your Higher Guidance. This connection enables you to access truth and love, giving you the power to take loving action for yourself and with others. INNER BONDING leads to healing core shame, anger and pain, opening the door to the sacred privilege of expressing your love and gifts upon the planet. Through books, lectures, weekend workshops, 5-day intensive individual and couples retreats, groups and individual work, INNER BONDING has helped thousands of people throughout the world heal their aloneness, their relationships, and move into personal power.

The latest book on the Inner Bonding process is Do I Have To Give Up Me To Be Loved By God? The following, from the Introduction to that book, is by Neale Donald Walsch, author of the Conversations With God series.

"Here, in the treasure that you now hold in your hands, is a method for recreating yourself as a powerful, spiritually connected, loving adult self, capable of taking personal responsibility for your own feelings and behaviors. This book offers you a process through which you may do that. It also contains a powerful method for healing relationship and family conflict, as well as for healing self-destructive and addictive behavior. I am very excited about this material. It takes the truths found in Conversations with God and other of the newest wisdom literature, and renders them functional in everyday life. Anything that takes a huge wisdom and turns it into a practical tool is a treasure indeed. It is one thing to behold the wisdom and quite another to be able to use it. Margaret Paul has for over a dozen years been working with, and teaching to others, a process which allow people to do just that. Now everything you could want to know about that process, and the eternal truths which underlie it, has been placed in a book. This book. This marvelous gift that that has come to be placed before your eyes."
- Neale Donald Walsch, Author

From the foreward of Do I Have To Give Up Me To Be Loved By God? " Would you think me crazy if I said there was a single process that could solve all the issues with which we as human beings struggle? Over the years, I begin noticing a common denominator in all these problems and came to the conclusion that there is only one issue: humankind's lack of experience in feeling our Divine self and our innate connection with the Divine. All other issues stem from this. Within the pages of this enlightened yet practical book, we are taught a most loving process [that] will take you on a life-changing journey down a path full of awakenings, tears, compassion, reunion, joy and peace. This path, in reference to our divinity, is one seldom even thought about, much less explored.
-Lindsay Wagner, actress, author, humanitarian
