One of my favorite ways to bring in the new year is to recommit to a daily practice. And I’m delighted to be able to share with you my personal practice, specifically the seven essential truths that literally have changed – at times, saved – my life. Many years ago I may not have thought that life was much worth saving. Today, as a result of this practice, instead of being consumed by self-loathing, plagued by anxiety or trying to cover up extreme insecurity, I live a healthy, fulfilling and blessed life. Over the years, my seven essential truths have replaced self-defeating patterns and become as much a part of me as breath itself.
Don’t just talk about it… SHOMI!
Part One: Essential Truths
My work counseling clients over the past 30 years has confirmed what I experienced myself: great relationships begin within. Honoring our own bodies, longings and dreams will lead us not only to more compatible partners, but deeper fulfillment. I’ve witnessed a cultural shift in the quality of relationships that both men and women want. The old paradigm doesn’t work anymore and a new one is still forming.
