How About a Real Makeover?
Have you seen those programs on TV where someone has a "makeover?" These shows can include anything from new clothes and make-up to radical surgery. But here's the problem: they only change the outside. Unless you make changes in the way you think and act, the pre-makeover person is bound to come out.
To make permanent changes, you need to make a fresh start in mind, body, and spirit. Edwige Gilbert, an expert certified in yoga, quigong, NLP, hypnotherapy, fitness/aerobics, and counseling for substance abuse and alcoholism, says that it will only take twenty minutes twice a day for a mere twenty eight days to change your life permanently. She presents this program for personal change in The Fresh Start Promise. You can:
Dispel fears and negative thoughts
Achieve spiritual growth
Succeed in recovery
Tap into Qi (chi), the universal healing energy
Gain vitality and enthusiasm
Achieve your goals
Discover hidden talents and gifts
You're going to be surprised at just how easy it's going to be to achieve all this and more!
The Secret of the Three Fundamental Statements
All you need for this journey is an open mind and heart, belief in your strengths, a sense of adventure, the desire to pursue your truth, and a deep commitment to change. The program is easy; you read two chapters per week. The first chapter explains your weekly practice and the second provides you with simple, day-by-day, step-by-step instructions for the exercises, techniques, and practices of that week.
The foundation of The Fresh Start Program can be summed up in three fundamental statements:
I can. I do. I will.
Each day when you arise you will determine what you want to accomplish during the day, and then activate your daily plan with these three core assertions. "I can" acts to free the mind from past beliefs and give permission to change. "I do" ensures action to create the desired change. "I will" mobilizes the spirit. Together, they integrate the three essential levels of being: mind, body, and spirit, creating the power of intentional harmony—the absolute secret to successful life change!
New Successes Overcome Past Failures
One of the problems most people face when starting over is that they only think in terms of stopping the past. "I want to quit smoking" or "I want to lose weight." But these focus your attention on your failures and don't direct you to what you want to be. This unique and tested system (it's the culmination of nearly thirty years of professional work in the field of human wellness) allows you to choose what you want to be and where you want to go, not just get away from the past.
Activities are described for each day. For example, in the evening of the second day of the second week you are instructed in doing clearing rituals, performing a chi body massage, and you then work on sound and finger therapy. You conclude by learning some facts about nutrition and eating for energy.
On the morning of the fourth day of week three you begin with energizing rituals, learn three ways to show compassion and kindness during the day, and practice the "mindful warrior walk."
These practices and concepts may sound easy; this is because they are! Yet, they can help you make radical, permanent changes in your life, concluding with a positive plan to strengthen your new conditioning, achieve future goals, and maintain a life of laughter, love, and peace. Give yourself the gift of life—the gift of a life-long commitment to life change. Go forward with not just joy, but joie de vivre! Go forward with The Fresh Start Promise.
