For the past month or so I’ve been making time each morning to listen to a motivational mp3 or CD.
Twice a week we listen to Healing With The Masters which is a free podcast until sometime in December. I’ve enjoyed most of these interviews thus far – it’s well worth checking it out if it’s your kind of thing!
The other 5 days we’ve been following a Tony Robbins audio program (Personal Power). This has been such a great investment in my time as I’ve learned so much. I’m familiar with NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) but haven’t got very excited about it. Paul did a course and he always shares what he’s learnt with me (usually when I’m trying to read or go to sleep etc.) – must admit it didn’t capture my attention too much.
Anyway, this audio course is brilliant. We’ve just listened to Tony’s advice and views on relationships where he talks about his fantastic relationship with his wife Becky. The course was recorded some years ago when they were still married (Mr. Robbins is now married to a woman called Sage who was previously known as Bonnie!!) – he talks with so much passion for his former wife you can’t help but wonder where it all went wrong. And how good his advice actually is when he didn’t remain with the same woman.
And all this on the day I learn Doreen Virtue was divorced by her husband, Steven Farmer. I’m quite a fan of Doreen and I really enjoyed reading about her life & travels with her now ex. Although there were a few accounts which made me wonder if he was really as ‘shaman’ as he claimed – and now as he took her to court and gets $35,000 per month alimony I’m pretty sure he’s not walking the same spiritual path as a lot of folk.
All very sad. But it’s made me feel thankful for my own marriage and the connection I have to Paul. You never know how long relationships will last so make every second count
