A Sacred Gift
"The intuitive mind is a sacred gift, and the rational mind its faithful servant.  We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift."

"Using and trusting intuition leads to clarity"


"All great men are gifted with intuition. They know without reasoning or analysis, what they need to know."


"Susan teaches and coaches from a world of possibilities, of new belief systems, of hope and vision ...

Susan's program Thin Begins Within provides an endless array of tools and tips and stories and research.  I call her 'The Shape Shifter' because my shape - mentally and physically - has dramatically shifted."

Fall is a time of Change 
changing leaf 
Fall is a favorite time of year for many people.  Here in Minnesota,  we are fortunate to witness the amazing annual spectacle of the changing color of leaves and migration of birds.
This energy of change we see and feel around us is within us too.  That's why fall is a perfect time for us to transform ourselves internally.
Is there something you have been putting off starting?  Take notice of any intuitive "nudges".  What are you inspired to do, change, or be? 
If you are ready to transform your body, check out the 6 week Thin Begins Within home study program.  I have made some exciting changes to the program and am really happy to be sharing this recipe for weight-loss success.
Your Intuition is Your Inner Teacher
Sonia Choquette recommends completing these statements in order to access your intuition, your inner teacher:
  •   I wonder ...
  •   I love ...
  •   If I weren't afraid, I would ...
Simple, but profound.  Spend a few minutes each day contemplating those statements. Notice what comes up for you.  
Expect to be guided.  Your intuition is always accessible, if you will allow it.  Trust in your inner guidance.  Listen to the messages you receive.  Act on this inner wisdom. 
This simple technique allows you to "hear" your intuition:
Breathe in 4 counts:  I  AM ... 
Breathe out:  AHHHHH ...

"I wonder what wonderful inspiration I will receive by listening to my intuition today."

Are You Ready to Transform Your Body and Health?
Perhaps your inner guidance is telling you that now is the time to change your body. Perhaps you are motivated to explore a new method to lose weight and increase vitality.
Thin Begins Within is a completely different weight-loss program because it's not a "diet" and it does not rely on willpower. 

This 6-week program will teach you:
  • How to change your emotional response to food
  • How to utilize your brain's powerhouse - the subconscious mind
  • Exciting research about nutrition
  • What types of exercise are right for YOU, so you will stick with it
  • How simple Feng Shui principles can help you lose weight.
  • The 4 steps to manifesting your desires (not just weight-loss ... any desire you have, in any area of your life!)
This home study program includes a detailed guidebook and recording of each class, plus weekly emails to keep you motivated and inspired.

Are you tired of yo-yo dieting?
Do you feel out of control around food?
Did past diets make you feel deprived?
Would you like to feel great and love your body?
Are you ready to lose weight permanently?
Is your intuition telling you to go for it?

Thin Begins Within works with your mind, body and spirit, so weight-loss can be easy and you can sustain your success!

Facilitating Change & Growth in Others
One of my first business decisions when I decided to form this business was to create a tagline.  I wanted something along the lines of: "guiding others to change their lives" - without using the word "guiding".
I decided on "affecting change and growth in others" even though I struggled with "effecting" vs. "affecting".  By the strictest standards, "effecting" is correct.  But it sounds and looks weird to me.  And since my intention is to affect the quality of change in others, I figured that "affecting" is correct grammar, after all!
For better or for worse, I settled on "affecting change & growth in others".  Every once in a while someone (usually a former copy-editor) will email me or stop me at a presentation to say that "affecting" is incorrect grammar.  "Yeah, yeah, I know", I think.  But it bugs me that there are people out there who might be annoyed at my poor grammar.  I'm not out to annoy people! 
So I have decided to change my tagline to "facilitating change & growth in others".  I like it.  What do you think?
