Settle for Less than Being Truly Loved

“Every child on the planet begins life by asserting their natural self. Rights allow us to express our unique, authentic human experience in the world. When we get negative responses from our environment, we naturally suppress various aspects of our original, authentic essence. We’ll restrain our life force, give up our needs, deny our desire for support, limit the experience we want, choose what we don’t want, or settle for less than being truly loved.” ~ Dr. Gary Salyer

Our April 23rd guest on Life Mastery Radio was Dr. Gary Salyer. His book, “Safe to Love Again” was published a few months ago. As a radio show co-host, I knew this book could be important to individuals looking for love the first, second, or third time around; but I didn’t expect it to have a take-away for myself. I’ve been married for over 36 years to the same man

Preparing for the interview, I read the first several chapters of Dr. Salyer’s book, and was surprised to learn there was much I didn’t know about love.

I was intrigued with the story of Paul, one of Dr. Salyer’s clients. Paul had been through 2 broken marriages, even though he’d been taught examples of lasting love from his parents, grandparents, and so forth. He was the first in generations of family who’d been divorced; and he couldn’t figure out why.

While working with Dr. Salyer, Paul kept repeating “Love will turn on me; when is love going to turn on me?” This feeling of mistrust in his two wives led them to “turn on him” because he couldn’t fully commit to love. He had created the situation of love “turning on him” because he expected it to happen.

Dr. Salyer discovered how this feeling originated in Paul when he was 5 years old. I won’t give too much away, because I want you to read his book, however Paul’s “truth” was not THE truth. As a child, he had interpreted a situation of his father beating him as “love turning on him”. But, when an older brother heard Paul’s interpretation of the same event, Paul realized his father was saving his life, not turning on him.

Unfortunately, Paul had undermined all his relationships because of a childhood feeling. FEELINGS, I learned, are what shapes our ability to be loved and love well. FEELINGS, not logic.

Conestoga wagons were an image Dr. Salyer put in my head to illustrate the “ruts” of love we find ourselves in because of feelings early in life. During the pioneer migration of early America, these wagon wheels would get stuck in the deep ruts formed by hundreds of wagons gone before.


“You better enjoy the rut you’re in, because you’ll be in it awhile.”

These ruts, or styles of love get us caught in repeating certain behaviors which can undermine relationships, like Paul’s.

Dr. Salyer spoke of an epidemic of unworthiness.

There are so many tools available in his book to help you find love or secure love in your life. There are 4 feelings, and 6 rights we all NEED to receive and give love.

Sharing Experiences of Anxiety, Allows you to Keep the Lessons

Eloquently spoken, Corinne Zupko was our Life Mastery Radio guest on March 19th. She is the author of From Anxiety to Love, wherein Corinne shares how A Course in Miracles helped her heal from anxiety.

Anxiety is nothing more than fear projected into the future: fear about what might occur at some future time. Love is lived only in present tense – A Course in Miracles

Experiencing anxiety from early childhood, Corinne’s mother encouraged her to study A Course in Miracles. Corinne explained how she literally put her fingers in her ears to avoid her mother’s explanation of “spiritual crap”.

Avoidance of “spiritual crap”

When Corinne’s anxiety escalated into debilitating panic attacks in college she was finally ready to “try anything.”

A Course in Miracles taught Corinne “miracles are a shift in perception”. Corinne simply needed to learn how to shift from an ego-controlled state of body and mind to a Self-controlled state, guided by her Inner Therapist.

Healing requires an exchange of fear for love.

During our delightful interview with Corinne Zupko, she illustrated through a personal story the choice we make to witness either fear or love – in other words, we’ll experience whichever one we’re looking for.

I was at a doctor’s office because of a symptom I’d had for a long time. My fear had led me to finally seek a diagnosis, and while in that state of fear the nurse (while drawing my blood) asked, “what are you here for?”

Upon explaining my concerns, the nurse replied, “oh, that’s not good. I sure hope you don’t pass out.”

Of course, I passed out! The nurse had validated my fear, which I was witnessing for.

I was sent to another doctor’s office for more tests. This time I had decided to witness for love instead.

When I walked into the office, the nurse I saw was the mother of a friend of mine. I didn’t even know her mother was a nurse. During my blood draw, I chatted with the nurse about my friend (her daughter).

The mother of my friend observed, “I don’t usually work on Monday’s, but was called in today. I arrived 30 minutes before you did.”

I was witnessing for love; the second nurse validated my love; and I’d had a completely different experience!

We’re grateful at Life Mastery Radio that Corinne shared her journey from anxiety to love. We will definitely keep the lessons.

You can read about her journey by purchasing, From Anxiety to Love – A radical new approach for letting go of fear and finding lasting peace

From the perspective of the ego, we are here to forget who we really are. From the perspective of our Inner Therapist, we are here to remember who we truly are.

Blog for February 21, 2012: A Holistic Lifestyle with Rainbeau Mars

It was a delight to be joined by yoga master, Rainbaeu Mars, and her mother, Brigitte, a renowned herbalist and health specialist.  Rainbeau, based in Hollywood, CA., is clearly guided by her a supportive force as she began the interview with, “We are all born with the possibility of love…” Her long-time yoga practice and daily centering of her mind keeps Rainbeau in alignment. “Yoga means union…and alignment brings us home.”

In the studio, Todd Alan took this in and sat tall before his microphone, rolling his head slowly from left to right and back again, and asked, “How much time do we need each day for yoga?”  Rainbeau didn’t hesitate, flinch, or sugar-coat the facts. “You need an hour a day.”  Wow!  An hour!  For many, this might sound like a huge commitment.

Well, yoga is a lifestyle, and our lives deserve our commitment, yes?  I sat in the studio and wanted to say, “You go, sister!”  I listened intently to learn about the disciplines from her own practice.  After all, this is a woman who has successfully led tens of thousands of clients along a holistic path.  “How you start your morning is how you’ll treat yourself the rest of the day.”  Sage wisdom.

Her mother, Brigitte joined the conversation and discussed the idea of introducing greens, especially dandelion greens, into one’s spring diet.  Both Brigitte and Rainbeau offered a genuine concern for the foods we select for our body, our “temple.”  Listeners received an overview of Rainbeau’s five secrets for a holistic life:

1.  Prayer and Gratitude.  Rainbeau suggests that you ask to receive guidance (from whatever source you access).

2.  Get on the mat!  If you only have 10 minutes, go through the chakras and meditate.

3.  Learn to cultivate “sexual magic” by allowing this energy to inspire you rather than confuse you.

4.  Practice Virtues.  Be aware and alert to the seven deadly sins.

5.  Dedicate your life to a higher purpose.  Raise your vibration!

Todd Alan inquired about the spring cleanse, a program to help anyone reset by moving the clutter of energy, chemicals, and habits away in a 21 day program.  Check out lifemasteryradio.net and select “events” to learn more about the spring cleanse offered by Rainbeau Mars.  And just for fun, get that yoga mat out of the closet and move with a feeling of gratitude.  Namaste.
