“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” ~ Confucius
Many holistic programs and self-help methods can help us get over the hills and through the valleys of our lives.
Depending on your personality type and fitness level, you can choose either a mental or a physical method to assist you in mastering your own life changes. Some people might even use a combination of both. The many wonderful activities range from yoga, meditation, reading self-help books, therapy, Watsu, massage, acupuncture, chiropractic, visualization, past-life regression, Feng Shui, seminars and workshops, sweat lodges, tarot cards, astrology, the “Course in Miracles” program, and prayer.
Excellent books, groups and tools are widely available and I feel at this time that I have very little to add to these wonderful resources. You need to find that one thing, or those several methods, that work best for you. If you are completely new to these self-help ideas and methods, let me give you a few ideas on how you may want to start exploring what is right for you.
Most of today’s guru’s or luminaries have great websites and facilitate a number of free tele-seminars and calls that you can listen to for an extra self-help boost. You can also find a wealth of free reports and brochures that contain valuable information about each self-help master’s methods and specialties. The internet is a great resource for locating information on a topic that you are interested in. Basic internet research will give you an idea about where to look for more information. First you need to broadly identify the issues you are facing and, once you have done that, pay close attention to self-help gurus who seem to be experts in a particular area. For example, if you are unhappy, then perhaps Marci Shimoff’s Happy For No Reason might be right for you.
I encourage you to find a few ideas, concepts and methods from the personalities whose message resonates with you. Once you’ve narrowed down which self-help expert appears to provide what you’re looking for, download their free information then sign up for any of their newsletters and tele-seminars. You can also pick up their books at the library or bookstore. Make a point to go through the material you’ve targeted each week until you get a sense of whose ideas seem to be the best fit for you.
Perhaps you’ve already found a few people whose messages speak to you. Who are they? If you’ve been reading or listening to or working with someone you find inspirational, I’d love to know about him or her. Your insights will benefit us all. Thank you for sharing your journey with us!
