I love being an Outreach Facilitator with the Monroe Institute. Having attended a number of programs at TMI has shifted me in many areas of my life. From self esteem issues to levels of trusting in my own judgements. From battles with depression to feeling happiness most of the time. I have shifted from a place of not loving myself to a place where I am now capable of loving both myself and others in a more “unconditional” manner than I was ever able to achieve in the time before I attended TMI.


Wisdom is defined as deep understanding and realization of people, things, events or situations, resulting in the ability to apply perceptions, judgements and actions in keeping with this understanding. It often requires control of one’s emotional reactions (the “passions”) so that universal principles, reason and knowledge prevail to determine one’s actions. Wisdom is also the comprehension of what is true coupled with optimum judgment as to action. Synonyms include: sagacity, discernment, or insight.


Being an avid reader of many subjects involving self-improvement and being a seeker of knowledge, I have gained a lot of knowledge. Going to the Monroe Institute and being in an environment where Meditation was practiced for long periods of time I have gained much in the ways of Wisdom.


Theta and Delta ….We attain these states of mind during deep sleep. The question is… how do you achieve this state of mind during waking consciousness? More importantly, how do you use it to overcome your limitations and challenges, triumph over your unwanted habits and negative thought patterns, and enrich certain aspects of your life?


Imagine being able to rewire yourself, without spending thousands of dollars on a professional hypnotherapist.  Join me for Meditation Mondays!
