With that in mind, I’m thrilled and honored to be able to provide to YOU this FREE 28 Day Soul Coaching® course. To get the most out of this class, I’ve listed some ideas below, well actually Densie Linn, the founder and creator of Soul Coaching® does. But really, if you just read through the material everyday, I guarantee your life will change for the better. I can’t wait to hear about your results! Please post any comments or synchronistic events as I LOVE hearing about what you are experiencing. (I’m currently out of the country with iffy internet connections, so I will respond to any messages after February 5th. Thanks. ~Lisa)
Be Gentle with Yourself When You Do This ProgramMost of us, when we were growing up were taught to judge ourselves harshly if we didn’t do things perfectly. You don’t have to be perfect for this program to work miracles in your life. It works in spite of feeling that you didn’t do it right.
Do the best you can. Forgive yourself when you don’t do every exercise exactly as described. Almost everyone who has done the program has mentioned that even on the days that they missed or didn’t fully do the exercises, there was an amazing synchronicity that still occurred.
Everything That Happens During Your 28 Days Is Part of the Process, (Even If It Doesn’t Seem Like It)In every moment the universe is whispering to you. There are messages for you in the morning breezes. There is wisdom for you in the caw of the crow outside your window, and in the cadence of an afternoon rainstorm. Even ordinary events in your life carry communications from your soul, but often our minds are too full to hear these messages. When you make the commitment to embark on a journey to hear these messages, incredible coincidences begin to occur. When you empty your mind, you can “hear” these messages.
Over and over again, people doing this program remarked at the astonishing synchronicity that happened for them. There were mundane coincidences, such as plumbing problems during the Water Week and electrical surges during the Fire Week, but also more profound coincidences such as hearing from an estranged family member during the section on relationship healing or receiving an anonymous bouquet of flowers on the Day of Gratitude. Literally everything that happens during your 28 days is part of the process, even if it doesn’t seem like it at the time.
Soul Coaching with OthersThe support of others can be extremely helpful and motivating when you have a group of others sharing the experience with you. Your Soul Coach is a remarkable facilitator and will help you get the most out of this program.
Keeping a JournalI suggest keeping two journals during the program. The first journal is your Process Journal. It is for mental and emotional clearing; it can be used to express your feelings and to write the insights incurred as a result of the daily assignments. As a suggestion, use a three-ring notebook and make (or purchase) colored tabs—one tab for each day. (Some people like to use yellow tabs for the Air Week, blue for the Water Week, red for the Fire Week, and green for the Earth Week.) The tabs help you to refer back to sections from previous days.
The second journal is your Joy Journal. In this journal you might include writing, collages, drawing, poetry, Polaroid photos—one a day to chronicle the great moments of your day—or anything else that illustrates the joyful or magical moments of each day of the program. No matter what happened on a particular day, there are always special, meaningful, or magical moments. Chronicle these moments in a way that is creative, invigorating, beautiful, and fun.
Daily AffirmationsEvery day you will be given a carefully chosen affirmation that is appropriate to the assignment for the day. Affirmations work! They work because what we focus on is often what we create for ourselves.
Some people write the affirmations on paper stickies and put them on their computer, mirror, or refrigerator, as a periodic reminder during the day. Alternatively, you can repeat the affirmation to yourself (silently or out loud) during the day.
Your word is your wand. If you constantly say to yourself, “I’m not good enough” your subconscious mind begins to believe it and then you feel and act “not good enough.” Consequently, people treat you in a demeaning way. A person who tells himself or herself most people can’t be trusted will find themselves surrounded by untrustworthy people. However, a person who thinks that the world is filled with love, often finds love pouring into their life.
Usually affirmations are stated in a positive way, and you may wonder why there are times in this notebook when an affirmation has a “not” or a “no” in it. I have found that there are rare occasions when using a “not” or a “no” in an affirmation can have more power than a positive affirmation. For example, for most of my life I have struggled with feeling overwhelmed. It was a recurring pattern that kept me in a perpetual state of stress.
To overcome this negative pattern, I began to use the positive affirmation, “I have too much time and need more to do!” This was great and really seemed to work for me. I felt less overwhelmed.
There would be times though, when I would occasionally still find myself feeling overwhelmed. It was only when I yelled over and over, “I will never indulge in the stupid negative pattern of ‘overwhelm’ ever again!!!” that something snapped. Since that time I have been busier than ever yet don’t feel overwhelmed. To me this is a miracle. A so-called “negative affirmation” worked. However, if putting a “no” or “not” or “never” in an affirmation doesn’t work for you; change the words so that they do work.
Listening to Your SoulSet a few moments of quiet time aside in the morning and evening just to ask your Soul if there is anything you need to know or anything that your Soul would like to communicate to you. This specific act of intent can open your ability to be receptive to inner messages.
What Is Your Intention for Doing This Program?Where intention goes, energy flows. It is important that you take time to get clear on why you are doing this 28-day odyssey. What end results do you desire from having participated in this soul journey? What is your intention? Are you really ready to make a change in your life?
Taking time to clarify your intention before you start your 28-Day Program will help determine the form that your program takes. Enjoy the 28 days. Remember to be gentle with yourself and to cherish your accomplishments. Feel free to do this program in any way that works for you and your life. Your journey toward connecting with your soul has begun. Don’t wait for the perfect time. The perfect time is now.
Making a Sacred ContractAs a suggestion, create a contract for yourself that clearly states your intention for the next 28 days and sign your contract. Giving your word is important. It’s usually much easier for us to keep our word with someone else, than with ourselves. We often are meticulous in keeping our word to others, yet will easily break a commitment to ourselves. However, the vows we make to ourselves are even more important to the soul than the vows we make to others. If someone continuously broke his or her word with you, after awhile you would think that person is untrustworthy. When you break your word with yourself, it is a message to your subconscious mind that you are not a trustworthy person and often your self-esteem suffers.
You can make your contract as specific or as general as you like. Use words that work for you and create an honest realistic contract that you can keep. Here is an example:
“I, Denise Linn, do hereby declare to myself and my Creator that I will dedicate the next month to connecting with my soul. I will endeavor to be honest with myself and with others to uncover the truth about who I am. Additionally, during this month, I vow to take time everyday to relax and eat according to my nutritional needs rather than my emotional needs. I accept that adhering to this contract attests to the strength of my character.”
Write your sacred contract out on paper, sign it, and date it. You might even want to post it in your home or put it at the beginning of your Process Journal.
That was a lot of information! Please remember that just by committing to participating in this coaching plan the Universe is already working on your behalf! That’s the really exiting news about this coaching program. Of course, YOU will get more out of this course the more fully you participate, as you will be more aware of what the Universe is doing for you. Bottom line, no pressure, and do the best you can!
Love and blessings, Lisa
