Daily InspirationIs it more important for you to listen to others or to be heard by others? If it is more important for you to be heard, then you are not hearing yourself - your feelings and your Guidance. If you are not hearing yourself, then you cannot take loving action for yourself. Today, hear yourself instead of trying to get heard by others. By Dr. Margaret Paul
'I wasn't sure what to expect upon entering the workshop - my eyes were definitely opened to how I have developed a pattern of ignoring my inner self and looking to others to fulfill my needs. I have come away with a sense of empowerment and hope that I haven't ever felt before. Thank you!' Kripalu Workshop-Lenox, MA, 9.13
"That shift from control (it has many disguises including super-niceness, "figuring" out why someone else did whatever, etc.) to intent to learn has been like a huge door opening for me. This work makes more "sense" than any book, idea, seminar, guru or model I've ever experienced. Truly my "higher power" has led me here and I am deeply grateful."
"Transforming! I've learned so much about us! It far exceeded my expectations. I found it very helpful to be here with a close friend, and even more helpful to know we will continue to dialog about our experiences here. The people that I met here also helped to enhance the process! [Margaret was] exceptional. Very knowledgable, open, and safe. A very good listener." Rowe, MA Workshop, April 2000
"Inner Bonding was explained clearly and fully. The activities were deeply moving and thought provoking. Excellent ratio of individual and group work." Los Angeles, May 2000
'I'm so glad and happy that I took this Workshop, it has helped me so much. I can relate to most of what was covered. I'm now taking the steps to love myself. I always thought that I was going to get it from someone else. I now know that I'm going to get love from myself. Thank you.' Rowe, MA Workshop, 5.12
"Completely and utterly life-changing. I have been working on this broad idea inside of myself and 'coming home to myself' for awhile, so this is just what I needed in my life at this time. These 6-steps are very powerful and I will now use them to help fully heal myself and really let my Inner Child know she is worth it and that I am making a commitment to take care of her!" Kripalu Workshop, 9.10
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
