Is everything in your life full of coded meaning? Does every red light you come to have to remind you of every time you’ve been stopped in your life? Am I trying to tell you that if you don’t read meaning into everything, you won’t have a successful, balanced and fulfilled life or find your Real Self? The answers to the above questions are no, no and no! At the same time, if you’re willing to use the exercises from Life Is a School , with practice, here are some of the benefits you can look forward to: THINGS LIKE….
Stepping out of victimhood into your powerful Real Self.
Gaining an effective tool for problem-solving and guidance.
Being more creative.
Increasing insights & understanding about yourself & others.
Having more fun & less stress dealing with the intricacies of life.
The following exercises are designed to help you find the gift no matter how minor or even life-threatening the situation. Once you do the Find-the-Gift exercise several times, you will no longer have to go through all the steps formally. You will see what you need to learn quite automatically.
