|The Positive Principle Show|
This week, we have been working with the 2nd Positive Principle, LOVE! What a powerful and life changing week it has been. I realized that I have little trouble in sending love to others. However, the greatest challenge for me has been to look in the mirror literally, and send that love to myself. My coaching session with Polly on Thursday was truly enlightening. One exercise we worked on was to send love to my past selves during different ages during times of pain or trauma. In deep meditation, I was able to meet with the little me of 4 years old, who never felt good enough, and to bathe her in so much love and light. I also traveled back to the college aged me, who was in the throes of much destructive behavior, and terrible self loathing. How remarkable it was to embrace this younger me, to infuse her heart with love and acceptance.
What an exciting first week it has been with the Positive Principle! As architect of my own life, I am experiencing incredible things. It is truly an awakening I feel. The beauty of being part of The Positive Principle Show is that I must be accountable! That is a fantastic thing indeed, for I am treasuring what each moment, each hour, each day brings, which a far more conscious vision. My frustration prior to thus origami was the constant spinning of my wheels without gaining any traction towards my goals. Working one on one with Polly thus week, in addition to our broadcast last Tuesday, helped me to clarify my goals. Let me share with you how I envision my life pursuing my livelihood:

Here are Heather's answers!
I am Heather Tobin, 46, and live in the woodsy lake town of Kingston, New Hampshire. Each morning I awake to the chorus of songbirds and it reminds me of my dreams. As a little girl the song of birds mesmerized and inspired me, for like them, singing was and always has been my soul's true calling. It is through sharing my voice, through the writing of music, that I have found my truest bliss. I dedicated the first half of my life to music, writing and playing professionally, from Boston, To New York, to L.A., and even Paris. And then a winter of great discontent hit me like an asteroid; the beast of severe depression twenty years ago.
I exited the stage and took to my bed, too paralyzed by depression and anxiety to pursue my dream. I heard the songbirds return each Spring and envied their freedom, their ability to take flight and be in tune with their purpose. I felt like a caged bird now, with her wings clipped...her voice muted.. I tried many therapies, medications, retreats, anything to banish the menace of clinical depression for 20 years. Only was it 4 months ago that a treatment called TMS, or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, miraculously healed my despair addled brain into a new found well being. Now depression free, I am the fledging bird, ready to soar higher than even before. Oh but I need the help! I want to share my journey with you on the Positive Principle Show, to inspire you all never to give up. Come along, and fly with me, with the most beautiful of songs yet to come.
