Guilt tells us our behavior is bad;
Shame tells us we are bad but,
We are not our shame and we are not our guilt.
The Struggle to Fit In...is the struggle for connection, the desire to be welcomed into a group or community; to feel like we belong. So how do we go from feeling isolated and lonely to feeling connected and supported by others?

How important is Unconditional Love to our ability to thrive? Is it possible that, until we learn how to encounter and extend unconditional love, we can never hope to realize our highest positive potential? Would a greater conscious connection with our unconditionally loving life force enable us to experience the kind of life we yearn for but have gradually come to believe is beyond our reach?

What is Unconditional Love as it relates to our human experience? How do we experience it in our daily lives? How do we access, experience, and express this powerful life-force to improve the quality of our life and the lives of everyone we touch?

Human beings are storytellers. We tell stories to understand our place in the universe, to make sense of our lives and most importantly, to define who we are. So how do these stories, or beliefs, influence our life? How do they influence who we’re willing to reach out to and who we avoid, which opportunities we go after and which we don’t? While these stories feel very real, does that make them accurate or complete?
Up next video 2 of 5 examines how the stories we tell our self can actually undermine our ability to experience genuine happiness and the love that others are trying to give us.
If we hold a story or belief about ourselves that we’re unworthy of love and genuine happiness then what are the chances we will experience them even if someone is willing to offer them to us?
Is it possible that it’s the stories we tell ourselves, rather than external conditions, that determines what we will and will not allow into our lives, and this, in turn, determines our ability to experience the benefits the universe may be trying to offer us?
Up Next - Video 3 of 5 "The Stories We Tell Ourselves" where we examine how the stories we tell ourselves may actually be limiting us from realizing our positive potential.
What if the self-limiting stories we’re telling ourselves, stories such as: “I’m too stupid, or I’m not attractive enough, or I could never do that,” are the biggest obstacles to realizing our positive potential? What if we are far more capable, powerful, and beautiful than we have ever been willing to give ourselves credit for and the only thing preventing us from realizing it is the iron grip we have on our self-critical beliefs? How might the quality of our life improve if we became willing to loosen our grip on these stories and revise them in favour of acknowledging our strengths, dreams, and abilities?
What if our deepest identity is unconditional love waiting patiently for us to reclaim this powerful life-force and bring it into our daily life? What would change for you if you began thinking and behaving from this internal source of beauty, wonder, and power rather than from the place of your insecurities, doubts, and fears?
Up Next - Video 5 of 5 "The Stories We Tell Ourselves" In this video we will examine how the stories we tell ourselves shape our experience and determine what we're willing and unwilling to allow into our life.
