Transforming Pain Into Power

  • Do you know anyone who has repeated the same painful experience more than once?
  • Would you like to get rid of your fear, self-doubt, anger or sadness?
  • Did you know that when you repress any of these feelings, you automatically cheat yourself out of feeling your highest levels of joy, love, self-confidence, and happiness?


One of the best secrets on this planet is that all of our painful experiences and emotions serve us. In fact they are absolutely necessary for our personal growth-and our happiness!

Did you know that:

. . . pain and pleasure sit side by side in your brain?

. . . it is impossible to repress just one emotion at a time?

. . . repressing your feelings suppresses your immune system?

how to get it

One of the best secrets on this planet is that all of our painful experiences and emotions serve us. In fact they are absolutely necessary for our personal growth-and our happiness!


Just as a battery can’t function without both a negative and a positive charge, our “negative emotions” are as essential to our functioning and health as our “positive emotions.” Because of the structure of our brains, when we attempt to control the feelings we dislike, we automatically stifle those we love.

we create our own prisons

We create our own prisons by judging our experiences and ourselves. We even handcraft and position each bar on our self-imposed cells. Would you enjoy being free of your self-judgments? – Leaving behind feeling like a victim?

Our judgments and our expectations pave the roads to our pain. Without victims, there can be no tyrants. The choices are ours.

Would you like to learn how to stop trying to change things about yourself and your life– and experience spontaneous change?



  • You’ve ever tried to release or let go of “negative” emotions such as anger, fear or sadness, only to find them returning to your doorstep.

  • You would like even more valuable tools for your personal growth toolbox.

  • You’d like to USE your emotions to bring yourself greater energy, more fulfilling relationships, and improved health.

  • You would appreciate new ways to handle stress at work and at home.



  • Drop self-judgements.

  • Allow yourself to be as powerful (capable) as you really are.

  • Learn to USE painful experiences – instead of feeling used by them.

  • Safely and constructively experience anger, fear, and sadness – and watch them spontaneously change into love, happiness, and self-confidence!

  • Develop so much self-love that your relationships reflect that back to you.

  • Naturally increase your energy level – and your health.

  • Discover that anger, sadness, and fear are just raw, neutral energy that you can use to improve your life.

  • Learn new ways to deal with your frustrations at work instead of lugging them home – and protect your immune system in the process

  • Develop your innate emotional power.


  • Why there is nothing wrong with your life.
  • Why nothing about you needs to be fixed or changed.
  • How all of your experiences and emotions are essential for your personal growth – and your eventual happiness!
