Courage is the key to having a fantastically intimate and loving relationship. It is a muscle that must be constantly exercised in order for it to show up in all of your actions and communications. It takes courage to get into a relationship, to fall in love, and to commit to another human being.
It takes even more courage to stay in that relationship, to do the work necessary to constantly create more intimacy, more respect, more compassion and more love. I once met a woman on an airplane who was about to celebrate her 50th wedding anniversary. I was in awe and asked her what she thought was the key to celebrating 50 years. She said it was courage — the courage to stay on the merry-go-round even when there are opportunities every time it goes around for you to get off, the courage to make the choice to see through new eyes.
And it takes courage, which is another form of trust and faith, to believe that you can reinvent both yourself and your relationship over and over again. Igniting Self-Confidence , today the book is now out in paperback. Debbie introduces you to a new kind of courage. Instead of thinking about courage as something that you do, your life and your choices will be infused with courage. She will guide you through a divine process to release emotional baggage and step into the delightful vibration of emotional freedom.
You will be inspired to surrender to the greatest power of all. Then you will learn to love yourself in new ways that will affect every area of your life. You will be guided to allow a new inspired vision to guide you, not a vision based in the past or even yesterday but a new vision that will propel you to love, listen and act in a deeper, more profound way. Love and courage are one and the same because courage asks us to open up to our compassionate heart and the divine warrior within who is ready to take on even the most difficult task of healing the heart and living in love.
With the passing of my sister, Debbie, in February, we had both been through several brutal months… trying our best to survive as she slipped away from us. Neither one of us were getting much sleep, both of us deep in our grief, and I was finally back at work trying to tackle not one, but three gigantic projects. In the sweetest, most gentle voice, Brian began to share with me his massive concern for my health and wellbeing. But there was something in the way he was approaching the conversation that made me stop and listen.
I was no longer the person who could do it all. My nervous system was shredded. I spent the next several days looking the calendar, trying to see when I could take a vacation and for how long. And then it dawned on me: I need a big, long, extended break. I needed to rest, rejuvenate, re-boot and re-think the rest of my life.
I turned on the auto-responder to my email and the recorded a new voicemail on my phones to announce that I would now be completely, totally unavailable and I began my sabbatical. One of my ongoing thoughts was, what if I get bored? How would I fill my days? Could I really do this? If the idea persisted, I wrote it down and then forgot about it for now. I plan to spend half my time diving into projects that provide me creativity, fun, freedom, and offer some level of contribution and prosperity.
My biggest fear is that as I begin to return to the real world, and start some projects, my old habits will emerge. I expect that there will be days when I slip. Days when I begin to spin out of control, or get caught up in the delusion that anything that I am doing is more important than taking care of myself. These will be the days when I need to remember my commitment to being a Wabi Sabi Love artisan, someone who finds beauty and perfection in her own imperfection. The 3 Keys to Manifesting True Love.
We are now married and sharing our lives. On Saturday we honored my sister Debbie with a Celebration of Life event for of her family, friends, coaches and community. It was beautiful, moving tribute to her life and legacy. I had the honor of emceeing the event and sharing stories…and we had several speakers including Brian, my brother Mike, a few friends and Marianne Williamson and Deepak Chopra. As I listened to the lyrics, I realized I wanted to share them with all of you because they really speak to what is most important in life.
Five hundred twenty-five thousand Six hundred minutes, Five hundred twenty-five thousand Moments so dear. Five hundred twenty-five thousand Six hundred minutes How do you measure, measure a year? In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights In cups of coffee In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife. Debbie admits in her books to have gone through a rough divorce. It was this moment in her life that inspired her toward meditation and ultimately to spiritual rejuvenation.

Sep 14, Doneen rated it it was ok. For me, the writing was muddled, and the author kept saying the same things over and over and over. Everything helpful and there were a few helpful, thought-provoking things could have been said in a clearer and much more concise way. Jan 13, John rated it it was amazing. The gist I got was that you need to be able to accept yourself and let go of your past deeds. Actually forgive yourself and move on. Beating yourself up over things you have done or that have been done to you tear you down from being the awesome person you have the potential to be.

Be grateful for whoever comes, The Guest House This being human is a guest house. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond. I highly recommend it. Debbie Ford's writing eminently readable, conversational, logical, easy to follow. She's written a lot of books on The Shadow, our darker self we'd like to pretend isn't there but keeps showing up in our lives to lead us astray and avert our path from the best of life.
From the different descriptions I just picked this one to start with and, without having read any others yet, I feel like I made a good choice. This is in perhaps the best self-help book, especially for those of us who're so used to bad situations that The Law of Attraction works against us and, like me, can't figure out how to get it going the other way, to work for us. This book is that instruction manual. It tells us how to embrace our past, forgive ourselves, embrace the strength and lessons of our darker selves, and move forward.
I really like that she closes with examples from her own shortcomings and how those are also her strengths. It is my greed and love for fine things that drive me to work when others are out partying, and it is my denial of the evil and angry judgments of others that allows me to stand up in front of group after group and tout my message—to heal the split between the two forces that exist within each of us.

And because I also try to be of use in a coaching role, I tend to read quite a lot of "self-help" books to understand why so many people ignore good advice and just do what they want anyway.

Ms Ford outlines the various archetypes of the shadow self that we may encounter, both in ourselves, and in those significant others we meet. She also offers a number of strategies in how to accommodate these "demons", transmute them, and co-exist with them. In the end, she gets a little too "born again" for my taste, but her overall delivery is very instructive. If you think you or someone you know is possessed by demons, check it out.
