My life coach recommended lots of books during our work together. One of my favorite is this one. Reading a short essay every day keeps me focused on my path to healing and often provides fodder for my Gratitude Journal. I'm still reading it daily.
One of my favorite exercises Rita had me perform in healing myself was collecting all of my limiting beliefs and writing them down, then throwing away the vehicle for the list. I wrote mine on a rock. When I was ready to finally get rid of it, I chose to drop it into a favorite lake. My brother-in-law motored me out to the deepest part of the lake on his pontoon. There I took the rock out of its bag and heaved it into the water. Felt so good to see it sink out of sight.
Meet my life-coach, Rita Hyland. You can check out her website at RitaHyland.com. Actually, I had never seen her until a few years after we were working together. All of our conversations were held by phone.
The lake reflected the daylight, which matched my mood that day - somber and gray on the way out, and hopeful and sparkling on the way back to the cottages.
