Negative situations and difficult emotions are a natural part of life. You cannot stop them from happening – you are going to experience troubling times. You are going to experience disappointment, you will lose people you love, you will face hardship at some point.
Your coping skills will carry you through. It is your reaction to life giving you lemons that determines whether you choose to make lemonade or drown under the weight.
Spending your life anxious and overwhelmed is no way to live. If every time you have a job interview you walk in convinced there is no chance you will get it, because why would anyone hire you, you are not coping in a healthy way? If every time you are dealt a blow you sit and wallow in it, you are not coping in a healthy way. The longer you live without healthy coping skills the longer you will live with stress, anxiety and general unhappiness.
You can learn coping skills. You can hone those skills and you can unlearn the unhealthy ones you have relied on thus far. It is easy to pour another glass of wine to feel good for a moment. It is not easy to deal with the long-term health consequences that come from substance abuse.
Having healthy coping mechanisms to call on can help you move ambiguity and fear into peace and confidence.

Life Force Infusion 1 – 3 – Value $36 / R566
Attracts more life force, promotes balance in entire being and whole life, protects you from negative energies
Life Force Infusion System fosters balance in all aspects of your life. When you are more balanced, more life force can flow through you to touch every aspect of your being. This increased flow fosters even greater balance, which in turn attracts even more life force. Because this energy system is to promote balance, it brings your entire being into balance in a balanced way—slowly and steadily.
Life Force Infusion System balances your whole being; when you work with this energy in a specific areas of the body, it balances those areas. For example, if you work this energy on a disharmonious stomach, this will attract life force to the stomach, promoting greater balance there and helping the stomach become healthier.
Life Force Infusion System brings balance to your body’s physical processes, including those involved in the functioning of your endocrine, organ, nervous, circulatory, digestive, and other systems. Life Force Infusion System balances these processes one at a time, beginning its work with whatever requires its attention most. As this system draws more life force to your physical body, a healing may start to occur. Such healing is not the direct effect of this system but of the increased life force that this system brings to your body. As you continue to works with this, your health will naturally improve.
Life Force Infusion System fosters a greater awareness of your emotional being. It helps balance emotional energies and incorporate the effects of new experiences into your consciousness. With more emotional balance, you can handle all situations in a more dignified and balanced way. Because of this, Life Force Infusion may seem to protect you from the negative emotions of others. However, you will simply become more able to place negative emotions in perspective and to maintain your own balance. Positive emotions will appear enhanced, but only because you will appreciate and enjoy them more.
Those who are familiar with the concept of karma – the law of cause and effect, or the law of action and reaction – know that an individual is ultimately accountable for his actions. Life Force Infusion System can help you become aware of incidents from the past; it can also help you see that your actions cause reactions. With this awareness, the effects of your actions can become learning experiences rather than simply slaps out of the blue. This awareness will also help you better handle your current life situations that are associated with past experiences.
Life Force Infusion System not only helps balance your physical and subtle bodies, it also helps bring into balance everything that comes into your life. If Life Force Infusion System is worn continually, it will even work to deflect those forces that upset your balance, and it will attract what is needed to maintain your balance.
Life Force Infusion System can take the energy that is in your aura, metabolize it, and return it to you in a more usable form. Life Force Infusion System calls to itself the life force that exists all around you and in your subtle bodies. It can bring this energy into your physical body in a form that the body can “digest” and use for its development. Ultimately, the mission of Life Force Infusion System is spiritual: when the bodies’ energies are balanced, a more stable foundation will be laid from which spiritual growth can flourish.
The Life Force Infusion System has 3 degrees / levels:
1st Degree: At this degree, you will use 2 symbols
2nd Degree: At this second degree, you will use a symbol
3rd Degree: The third degree is the Master Level.

The Gifts of Imperfection course + 13 audio
Perfection is a trap. Is it holding you hostage too?
Perfection is the state of being perfect, and this state does not exist. (You knew that, right? Apparently, some of us perfectionists were left off the memo 😊)
Perfection is a moving target, forever deluding those of us silly enough to chase it. You cannot ever catch it – much like chasing a rainbow, or your shadow, or a fleeting thought.
It is impossible to capture the state of perfection – or perfectionism – and to be one with it.
Perfectionism means it drives you nuts to see a little hair out of place, a little dust on your table, a little digital smudge on your picture, a little food on your child’s clothes, a little something that then takes away the entire focus on what is right and what is good and puts all attention on the minuscule details that nobody but you care about.
Perfection means you simply cannot be content with what is.
One of the highest rewards of doing our work and going through our lives is that we feel the sense of completion, the joy of accomplishing something – anything. And we can celebrate and bask in the feeling.
When you are a perfectionist, you sabotage your feelings of accomplishment with worry and second-guessing and passing judgement on what you have done especially if you are not happy with the results.
This course will teach you how to get out of the long shadow of wanting to be perfect. Instead, it will teach you to achieve peace within by accepting yourself fully – flaws and all.
