A spiritual awakening showed me how to love myself and overcome depression
For decades I hid my battle with depression from the world. As a functional depressive, I enjoyed a high powered media career with all the outer appearances of success. But I was miserable inside. My life as a medical journalist, physician and acupuncturist showed me the power of ‘mind over body’ but it left so many questions unanswered when it came to loving myself.
In 2005 I hit rock bottom and I cried out to God to take my life. What happened next blew my mind — and my depression out of sight. I had an out-of-body near-death-like experience and arrived at a place of unconditional self-acceptance and real self-love.
My awakening inspired me to research neuroscience, the world’s spiritual traditions, and energy psychology to understand what happened to me. A 5-step framework emerged, The Cornerstone Process, which I present to you in this book.
I Love You, Me! includes the latest in-depth research from positive psychology, mindfulness meditation, compassion and life planning. It will help you:
• Learn Who You Really Are by uncovering your spiritual DNA, the blueprint of your authentic self, revealing who you were intended to be before the programming and socialization process took over
• Love Who You Really Are by showing you how to release useless mental programs, heal old wounds and forgive your past while embracing your spiritual gifts
• Live Who You Really Are by using the Diamond Life Design framework to architect an epic life based on your values, desires, and your authentic self
