Escape Suffering With this Meditative Technique

I would like to share The Five Steps of Faith, which have helped me live life as an awakened, powerful woman.

For 25 years I suffered from low self-esteem, addiction to alcohol and failed relationships. I was so tied to painful and embarrassing moments that suffering became part of my identity. Every day I woke up consumed with fear, guilt and anxiety over how I would face the future. I had no idea that there was a choice available to me about how I could feel. I was living in a dark hole and I did not know how to get out.

One day I realized that I could not pick up another drink or I would probably die in the near future. After a few months of sobriety, I started regularly praying or meditating. Before long, I was writing. After each period of silence and prayer, the most amazing messages came to me! The first one I received told me that I would be fine and have an amazing life. I had lessons to learn and when I mastered my lessons, I would need to go and teach others what I had learned.

Now, 23 years later, I am still meditating and writing down the messages I get. I have since called them “Soul Notes”. They are definitely a communication from a higher consciousness. These beautiful messages have instructed me to teach The Five Steps of Faith to women in need. I know that this is the greatest lesson I have learned in my life, which I now share with you. This remarkable formula is the foundation for personal transformation.

  1. Focus: Go within yourself daily and tap into the divine consciousness that you have through prayer or meditation.
  2. Acceptance: If you can accept what has happened in your life, you free yourself from the past which no longer serves you. You are then able to develop a new attitude that will empower you in the present….Learn the 3 other Steps of Faith on
