"Through a beautiful synthesis of ancient insight and modern science, 

Dr. Weissman gives our minds a reason to accept what our heart already

knows - that love is the great healer of life, and the power to love into

wellness lives within each of us."

~ Gregg Braden, New York Times best-selling author of The Divine Matrix

 
Dear Susan,
 
One of the items on my bucket list is to meet Louise Hay and maybe share a meal with her. I find her to be truly inspirational - she started Hay House Publishing at the age of 50 and never looked back. Today Hay House has become an international powerhouse, offering not only books but cruises, conferences, radio programming, and soon it will be announcing a virtual program. I am excited to have been chosen to be an affiliate of Hay House - stay tuned for more info about that.
 
So I guess it's no surprise that I love to host Hay House authors who've met Louise and align with her values (and maybe have a story or two to tell). I find it especially interesting to hear these authors speak because it's as if they are leaping off the pages of their books and giving you new information and insight. Many of them, like Dr. Darren Weissman who will be here on May 9, also host a weekly Hay House Radio show, and its description is a perfect summary of what he will be speaking about:
 

Take a deep breath, close your eyes, and feel your heart's connection to this moment. Do you recognize the truth of who you are? Or, are you finding yourself to be stuck 

in old beliefs and patterns that are limiting the health of your body and relationships? With his insight and care, you'll finally discover Divine meaning in life's miraculous journey. Dr. Darren has been coined a spiritual cardiologist, performing 'open heart' surgery to awaken the rhythm of peace in each and every heart that he touches. 

Dr. Darren dives deep below the surface of superficial dramas and traumas to reveal, unleash, and empower you to live your life with your heart  wide open...

The way your body and life were naturally designed!

 

On May 9th we will have the opportunity to listen to and watch Dr. Darren as he brings this topic to life and discusses the See, Feel, Hear Challenge, a powerful technique we can use to transform our lives. I hope you'll join me to hear this truly dynamic speaker.

 

With gratitude,

 
Sue

   Adrienne

Adrienne from Adrienne Clarisse will be here to help you raise more than your spirits by offering Bra Consultations and Bra Fittings.
 
Wearing a bra that fits correctly not only helps you look good and helps your clothes fit better, it helps you feel more confident.  Confidence leads to feeling good about yourself.  When you feel good about yourself, you can do anything.  You know that don't you?  But did you know that 80% of women are wearing improperly fitting bras?  Finding the right bra is a painstaking effort for most women.  All that will change when you meet Adrienne.

  

During a Bra Consultation, Adrienne will analyze the current bra you are wearing and tell you whether or not it fits.  She'll explain what she looks for in a proper fitting bra.  She'll offer suggestions on what sizes and possible styles you should try based on your body type. Cost: $20; Appointment is approximately 20 minutes. 
  
During a Bra Fitting Adrienne will do the same as in a Bra Consultation.  However, you'll also be personally fit and try on different sizes and styles.  Adrienne will make recommendations based on your lifestyle, current ready-to-wear wardrobe and personal preferences.  You may chose to purchase bras which are not included in the fit fee and start out at $76.  
Cost: $75;  Appointment is approximately 30-40 minutes.

  

After you have your bra consultation, should you decide to upgrade to a Bra Fitting, the cost of the consultation ($20) will be applied towards the Bra Fitting fee of $75.
  
Adrienne McGill is passionate about helping women feel good about themselves.  As the owner of Adrienne Clarisse, she has fit 1,000's of women over the last 8 years. She is also the founder of Bra Fit Academy, which is designed to teach women how to select proper fitting undergarments.  Adrienne can be reached at adrienne@adrienneclarisse.com or 847.573.8905 for any questions or to schedule your appointment.
  
Testimonial:  
"My new bras have revolutionized my life!  Having a bra that properly fits makes an enormous difference.  The bras are wonderful and it was completely worth the road trip to see you.  I appreciate the time and care you took to make sure I was fit properly.  It also means a lot to me that you were concerned about how I felt during the process.  You made me feel good inside and out!"  Allison, Rockford, IL

 

And here are this month's practitioners . . .
  
Eileen NEW! Akashic Record Consultations with Eileen Grace (TPD Member)

The Akashic Records are the collective energetic vibration of each individual soul and their journey throughout time. They are often referred to as the library of souls. These sacred records contain your past, your present as well as your future possibilities. The primary experience of being in the Akashic Records is one of being both known and loved. Healing occurs as you experience your soul from this place of love and compassion. Experiencing the richness of the Records can help people in every area of life. Insight and guidance from the Records can assist us to reveal our soul's very essence, potential and purposes.  Issues of a lifetime are brought to light from a higher, spiritual perspective. Healing can occur as we come to a greater understanding of our patterns and needs from a soul level, as well as growing in consciousness as you remember who you are, where you came from and experience your own magnificence. 

During your consultation, Eileen will access the Akashic Records through a Sacred Prayer. This process brings about a shift out of ordinary human consciousness into divine consciousness. Eileen then is able to access information that is at the soul level.  Information revealed is for everyone's highest good and from a divinely loving nature. Messages are delivered in a way that makes sense to the one having the consultation. It is an experience that is not only heard through the spoken word but felt through the heart. 

 

Testimonial:

"As Eileen was reading my records I asked my questions, and listened to her insight and I began to see the puzzle pieces came together in a very profound way. The blocks and restrictions that came up from previous lives made complete sense in how they were affecting this life. Eileen not only gave me this insight to reflect on, but she gave me ways in which to release these "old beliefs" so that I could move forward and be more present in this life. Since my reading I have not only a greater sense of peace, but a greater sense of who I am".  Dana

KarenC
NEW! Accessing Your Consciousness with "The Bars" Energy Work with Karen Cowperthwaite (TPD Member)
How much of your day is spent doing, doing, doing? Are you living your life making sure you don't need to receive?  What if you allowed yourself to receive so that you could have the life you truly desire--no preconceived notions about what is possible. Having your Bars run, meaning the 32 points on your head being gently touched, releases anything that doesn't allow you to receive. 

Your energy session begins by asking about limiting beliefs you may be holding. There are Bars for healing, body, control, awareness, creativity, power, aging, sex and money. 32 in all. By gently touching the Bars, you can change the energy, and something different can show up in your life with ease. Set yourself free from whatever is limiting you, and explore the questions and choices that lead to greater possibilities. How does it get better than that? Consciousness truly is that easy.

 

This client explains the benefits of having a Bars session: 

"Recently, I became more aware of a long held limiting belief in me. I wanted to work with Karen to release the energy behind this belief, possibly even work on the "mind" level that created it. 

For me, with Karen applying the very slight pressure of her fingers along my head, I felt very peaceful and relaxed.  I had many insights come to me while she moved about my head and my body.  It was like I was hearing in my own mind what my higher self wanted me to hear - the NEW beliefs that I understand now need to take the place of the old.  This was without me trying to hear, without me actively "doing" anything!  I intended to be open to receive and that is exactly what occurred.  I received information and I received thoughts, I believe from my higher self and my guides/angels. 

Since then, I DO feel like that limiting belief is not nearly as present or strong. What I seem to sense is more of a trusting in myself and my well being - and more awareness that what I had given power to was too much 'mind'."

 

Karen Cowperthwaite is certified as a Master Instructor for Integrated Energy Therapy and she is a BARS & Reiki practitioner. She is trained as an Intuitive Life Coach for Weight Release, Relationships and Reconnecting with Your Purpose by Colette Baron-Reid.  Karen has worked in the special education field for 21 years. She has a special place in her heart for children with special needs and their families, for those being treated for chronic illnesses and caregivers.  A married, mother of three, Karen credits her daughters with being her greatest teachers.

Pivot Teams are essentially mini-Mastermind groups, where people come together for just three meetings to brainstorm and grow an idea or discuss an issue. These are especially helpful for people who want access to a group of peers for a short period of time, and can then move forward with their idea. Click here to learn more and download an application.  Pivot Teams 

 

Momentum Groups (TM)

 

As a private practitioner, solo professional or small business owner do you ever feel somewhat alone and a little bit confused on what to do next? Are you reliant on yourself for ideas and do you feel you waste time trying to figure things out by yourself? Now you don't have to walk this journey alone. I am forming Mastermind groups, called Momentum Groups (TM) to help you move beyond your own limited view of what's possible. Imagine having 4-5 people you meet with twice a month for the purpose of problem-solving, brainstorming, encouraging, and motivating each other. By becoming a member of one of these groups, you get to hang out with others who are all working to reach a common goal: to have a profitable, rewarding and fun business that feeds your soul and helps others as well. Details

The Present Moment offers you two opportunities to get involved and live inspired. The first is through our Pay It Forward Kindness Program for Girls.
PIF  
This program is loosely based on ideas drawn from Catherine Ryan Hyde's best-selling book, Pay It Forward. In our program, girls receive three charms and a card for recording their experiences. I ask them to look for opportunities to perform three acts of kindness to other girls. Each time they do, they give one of the charms to the recipient of their action, and ask that person to perform their own act of kindness and pass along the charm. This is a great activity for Girl Scout groups, church groups, sports teams, and any other group, as well as for individuals. Pay It Forward kits are available for $3.00 each. Click this link to find out how to participate. KindnessProgram
 
The second way for you to live inspired and bring inspiration to others is by conducting your own Inspiration Experiment. Try this...go about your day intending to inspire at least one person. (Inspire means "to influence, move or guide as if by divine inspiration.") You may like it so much that you make it a daily ritual. Remember, if you do something for 21 days in a row it becomes a habit. Wouldn't this be a great habit for all of us to adopt? I'd love to hear your stories of how you inspired someone or how you are feeling as you consciously test this out. You can email me at Sue Opeka. There is a Face Book page called "The Inspiration Experiment" where I post your stories - with your permission and anonymously, of course - and you can post there as well. Just go to The Inspiration Experiment on Facebook to read the stories of what others have already done. And don't forget to like us once you're there! If you'd like to read the full story of how The Inspiration Experiment came to be, just click here. Thoughts From Sue
