Dear TAT Friend,
Do critical inner voices keep holding you back?
- “I’m not good enough!”
- “I’m different – I don’t fit in!”
- “I messed up – I can’t forgive myself.”
Do they stop you from being relaxed and feeling at ease?
- “I haven’t worked hard enough.”
- “I’m not enough.”
- “I’m too fat/skinny/young/old/ugly/stupid/uneducated for anyone to like me.”
Do they hold you back from moving ahead in your life with what you really care about?
Dear TAT Friends,
Someone was advertising a sex webinar and I thought, "I don’t know them or what this will be like. Why would I want to do a sex webinar with them?" Then I realized that you don’t know what I’m offering in the TAT for Better Sex webinar and could be thinking something like that.
So here’s what’s cool about what I’m offering:
Dear TAT Friends,
You know how when you’re feeling really happy and good inside, the whole world looks brighter and lots of people smile to see you? I’d love more of that for us — that’s what the Drenched in Love webinar is for.
At the start of doing a big "pot" of TAT stuff, I usually feel stuck and grumpy. Thoughts like "hmmph, this can never change…it’s how I’ve always been" come up. Almost always, after about five minutes into doing TAT, I’m grinning: it feels like an irresistible fountain of happiness is pouring up through me and life feels good. And stuff that gets cleared up has stayed cleared up — life keeps getting better.
Dear TAT Friends,
Just home from the ACEP (Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology) Conference. It was lots of fun. These are a warm, lively group of people from various professions worldwide who are sharing healing approaches and working toward the mainstream acceptance of these alternative approaches to health. To learn more, check out energypsych.org , the ACEP website. There were lots of interesting speakers and you can get copies of the conference talks on DVD at the website.
Our TAT for Better Sex webinar will be here soon. Someone asked if they can get a discount for their partner to join them in the webinar and we thought that sounded like a great idea. If you’d like to have your partner or spouse join in, just write to Customer Service after you register and let them know you’d like the coupon code for your partner to register, too. Julie or Teri (our friendly Customer Service folks) will be happy to help you with that.
A quick reminder if you get this in time. I’m leading a free webinar tonight at 6:00 pm PST on Free Yourself of What’s in the Way of Presenting Your Beautiful Self and Your Unique Offering to the World .
It’s filling up fast, so I hope you can still squeeze in. Just go here to register.
I was just driving home from the local classy deli with some soup and crackers for dinner and started thinking about something that is really not obvious about TAT and our community. Unless you’re in “TATland”, you can’t know it from the outside.
I just realized tonight that my connection with my mom has been embodied by being in this house with her. Our family has lived in this house since I was 11 and I was the trustee for the family trust, so I took care of things like legal affairs, paying bills, and going through the mail with my mom. It’s only dawned on me tonight that having that relationship winding down now is stressful. So…you can believe that by the time you get this newsletter, I’ll have done TAT about it.
During the teleseminar on grief that we just finished, missing my mom didn’t come up. What came up was missing my dad, who died over 14 years ago. There was some distress that happened the last time I saw him before he died, and I had never cleared it.
Thank you for your prayers and good wishes. Please accept my love and thanks. The tender, connected quality of our community is lovely.
I’ve been surprised at how much has gone on between my mom and me since she left her body.
One central thing I did TAT about not too long before she left that body was something about completely accepting what’s real for me in the moment…not trying to bend my experience even a tiny bit to suit someone else’s ideas. For instance, at one point, I had the strong feeling that I was going to be in the house with my mom till she died. I couldn’t have consciously known when that would be and there were many times in the past year that I felt pretty certain she was going to die soon. But one day, I felt “I have to be with her till she dies”…not knowing how long that might be. So I did it. I immediately left my then current happy surroundings to be near my mom. In fact, one person said something like, “Oh, this has happened so many times before with your mom. Don’t you think this is a false alarm?” I didn’t. So, I recommend you do TAT for believing in or accepting your own experience just as it is, completely independent of anyone else’s thoughts.
Dear Lovely Friend,
Happy New Year!
A couple of weeks ago, something was bugging me and I just felt like whining and complaining about it. Usually, I try not to whine or complain because I never see any good coming out of it…until that day. It dawned on me that I could whine and complain with all the gusto I wanted, write down my unedited expressions and then (as if you hadn’t guessed) do TAT about the whole bundle. So that’s what I did. Oh man, that was so liberating: I no longer resonated or identified with any of it and felt so free free free. All of that nasty griping turned into emotional and spiritual gold. And that’s my New Year’s gift to you: unlimited piles of inner gold transformed from the worst thoughts and feelings.
Just make a list of all your complaints and download the free How to Do TAT booklet. As you do the TAT Steps, the word “this” in each statement will refer to your whole list. (We call this “making a bundle” or “throwing everything into the pot”.)
For Step One, use this statement instead:
Sitting in my living room, it’s hard to believe that it’s already been a month since the Symposium. What a great time we had – laughing, connecting, and sharing the power of group healings with TAT.
Several of the people who were at the Symposium joined me the following week for my teleseminar on Regaining Your Innocent Heart. We had such a good time and everyone reported getting great benefit from it. Just click here to hear what they had to say.
I’m very excited to tell you about two teleseminars I’m giving in January so you can have your own experience.
Are you so busy dealing with the details that you’ve lost sight of your goals? Do you find that sometimes your heart’s desires are clouded?
It happens to me and lots of people I know – getting involved in the events of the moment, we lose the deep connection with our heart and our most meaningful goals for ourselves. Sometimes, it’s hard to slow down enough to reflect on what we really want. So, we’ve come up with some fun and easy ways for us to do that.
To enhance your manifestation of your heart’s blueprint for happiness, consider:
