Part 1 is the meat of her testimony going through drug abuse, alcohol abuse, insecurity, domestic violence and multiple men in her life. Part 2 is the recovery part that can be summed up in one word, God! There were some scenes in Part 1 where I could relate as my past wasn't all that perfect either. This book will indirectly encourage you to be thankful for whatever challenges you go through, and by all means, go through this process called life but have God as your backbone.

Angelena Folkes marked it as to-read Nov 21, EL Doziego Francis marked it as to-read Apr 01, A very effective way of doing this is simply to take the focus of your attention away from thinking and direct it into the body, where Being can be felt in the first instance as the invisible energy field that gives life to what you perceive as the physical body.
The fact is that no one has ever become enlightened through denying or fighting the body or through an out-of-body experience. If you keep your attention in the body as much as possible, you will be anchored in the Now. The body loves your attention. It is also a potent form of self-healing. Most illnesses creep in when you are not present in the body. If the master is not present in the house, all kinds of shady characters will take up residence there.
When you inhabit your body, it will be hard for unwanted guests to enter. If at any time you are finding it hard to get in touch with the inner body, it is usually easier to focus on your breathing first. Conscious breathing, which is a powerful meditation in its own right, will gradually put you in touch with the body.
Follow the breath with your attention as it moves in and out of your body. Make it into a meditation. Ten to fifteen minutes of clock time should be sufficient. Make sure first that there are no external distractions such as telephones or people who are likely to interrupt you. Keep the spine erect. Doing so will help you to stay alert.
Alternatively, choose your own favorite position for meditation. Make sure the body is relaxed. Close your eyes. Take a few deep breaths. Feel yourself breathing into the lower abdomen, as it were. Observe how it expands and contracts slightly with each in and out breath.

Then become aware of the entire inner energy field of the body. By doing this, you reclaim consciousness from the mind. Every sound is born out of silence, dies back into silence, and during its life span is surrounded by silence. Silence enables the sound to be. Just as no sound can exist without silence, nothing can exist without no-thing, without the empty space that enables it to be. Every physical object or body has come out of nothing, is surrounded by nothing, and will eventually return to nothing. What is more, even inside every atom there is mostly empty space.
What is left is more like a vibrational frequency than particles of solid matter, more like a musical note. The essence of all things is emptiness. Every addiction arises from an unconscious refusal to face and move through your own pain. Every addiction starts with pain and ends with pain. Whatever the substance you are addicted to — alcohol, food, legal or illegal drugs, or a person — you are using something or somebody to cover up your pain.

That is why, after the initial euphoria has passed, there is so much unhappiness, so much pain in intimate relationships. First you stop judging yourself; then you stop judging your partner.
Love is a state of Being. Your love is not outside; it is deep within you.
You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you. It is not dependent on some other body, some external form. Love is not selective, just as the light of the sun is not selective. It does not make one person special. It is not exclusive. You cannot transform yourself, and you certainly cannot transform your partner or anybody else. All you can do is create a space for transformation to happen, for grace and love to enter. The truth is that the only power there is is contained within this moment: It is the power of your presence.
Once you know that, you also realize that you are responsible for your inner space now — no-body else is — and that the past cannot prevail against the power of the Now.

This I know. All inner resistance is experienced as negativity in one form or another. All negativity is resistance. Watch any plant or animal and let it teach you acceptance of what is, surrender to the Now. Let it teach you Being. Let it teach you integrity — which means to be one, to be yourself, to be real. There is a human world, an ant world, a dolphin world, and so on. There are countless beings whose consciousness frequency is so different from yours that you are probably unaware of their existence, as they are of yours.

Some of the practices that will be explored include:. This course will include question-and-answer sessions attached to each lesson. In these sessions Kim answers common questions that arise with these teachings. The pain-body is an accumulation of old emotional wounds, affecting our health and sense of well-being physically, emotionally, mentally, and energetically.
It can also affect our state of consciousness if we are not present enough. There is no way to escape it; the way out is the way through. When we surrender to the present moment and resist nothing, we live in alignment with life. The nature of the ego and pain-body is either to hold on, grasp, and accumulate—or to resist fully.
Session highlights include:. Your self-image is a mask, a role. When we identify with the role, the ego arises. Kim provides effective practices for dealing with egoic patterns.
