Colette Baron-Reid – Practicing Surrendered Acceptance

Tonight’s call with Colette Baron-Reid, on Healing With The Masters, simply ended too soon!

She sparkled with so much joy, providing truly valuable content in such a clear, concise and fantastic, yet grounded, manner that the time just flew by.

Hitting rock bottom at the age of 27, Colette used her life experiences to shift and change herself, and has now helped thousands of people shift and change themselves as well. So when she says being a victim is a choice, she speaks with the voice of experience.

She’s not talking about denying your grief or anger when someone hurts you. She’s talking about the self-sabotaging energy of resentment and wandering around in the past.

Most of us have a hard time really looking at ourselves. We would rather run as fast as we can in the opposite direction. The real courage isn’t about the actual experience of being wounded; it is about going inside, looking at the wound and getting at the stuff that’s festering around it.

If you don’t have another solution and you don’t trust that there is one, you’re going to run. When trying to escape our feelings some of us turn to what Colette refers to as detours, things like food and perfectionism, instead of becoming still and staying where the discomfort is. It’s easier to surrender and experience the discomfort, because it goes away faster if you remain present to it.

You have to make peace with the fact that you are an imperfect human. That includes making peace with the darker side of your nature; with feelings like jealousy or not feeling like you’re good enough. You have to be kind with yourself.

The wounded ego refuses to acknowledge when it is hurt, so it goes into different layers of character defects in order to remain separate from others. It’s important to be compassionate about that part of us, too.

Colette shared a profound exercise, her Envision Process. Using these 3 Questions, she immediately put us into the observer state of mind:

When are you?
Who are you?
Who are you listening to?

This quick exercise will help you stay put and get to neutral, when life’s challenges make you want to run for the hills.

Through her Goblin Process we used our imaginations to invite our unconscious mind to speak to us in the language of imagery, so we could redirect the wounded energy into something more productive.

And, the exercise around the landscape of your mind is not to be missed. It is one of those simple opportunities with the potential to change your life! This powerful process offers a lightness of being which can be reached in moments and a new, irreversible perspective.

We experienced many, many gifts of insight tonight with Colette Baron-Reid. We had a terrific time learning about where to look for the buried treasures of our lives and how to stay present in a world where everything is sacred.

Just a really, really, wonderful and rich call!

We’re super excited about Colette’s Special Offer. If you’re resonating with her message, you might want to check it out.
