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.
It’s been a long time since we were in touch. My mom appeared to be getting close to death over the past six weeks and so I spent a lot of time near her. About a week and a half ago, she became more inward. Last Thursday night, my brother and his wife and my boyfriend and I were up late at Mom’s, sharing a lovely evening in front of a fire. We stood near the front door about a quarter past midnight, laughing and carrying on and said our good nights to each other. My mom was in her room just within a few feet of our boisterous, warm good-byes.
Maybe five minutes later, when I went in to her room to help change her nightgown, her face was very pale and I thought she’d died. I leaned close, put my hand on her chest and she took a gentle breath. That was her last.
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:
I hope this finds you well and happy.
We have so many great ways for you to connect more deeply with the TAT community and learn to use TAT in more profound ways to enrich your life. I’ve made some audio recordings to share my plans and excitement with you. Just click on the links below to hear more.
