"When you know that you're capable of dealing with whatever comes, you have the only security the world has to offer."
~ Harry Browne, American Financial Advisor


It's summer! Are you taking time to slow down, go to the beach, or take that long overdue vacation? Or as a client recently confessed, just lie on the grass in her backyard and read a novel? In our busy lives, why is it so hard for us to pause and rest in the moment? This issue will examine that question and offer some refreshing solutions. Enjoy.

With warm appreciation, Linda

  Master Fear and
Create Financial Freedom

If you read the paper or listen to the news, you are pummeled with stories about our 'never ending' recession, the skyrocketing jobless rate, and California's failure to balance its budget. As I wrote in my last issue, financial fear is spreading throughout the world like a virus. Though we are doing our best to navigate these uncharted waters, I believe what most troubles us is that no one can predict where this is going! We are being forced to step into what Buddhist teachers call 'the wisdom of uncertainty.' 

Fear is the mind's misguided attempt to create certainty. When we are afraid, we try to control what is uncontrollable. For instance, our minds drag up evidence from the past to project worst case scenarios for the future. Since action follows thought, we enact what we are most afraid of, prove that the fear is 'true', and generate more fear. We miss the only place where truth resides - in the present moment.

The present moment is fresh, full of surprises and a place of peace and power. When we rest in what Eckhart Tolle* calls the "Now", we have access to our brilliance, our unlimited potential, and solutions to all our problems. So how do we find our way back home to this place of awareness so we can master our fear?

Here is a solution that is helping my clients - My new program and recently published book with CD:

Inspirational Writings
with Audio CD

If you find that your life is teetering out of balance and you are caught up in an endless cycle of doing, you are not alone. Some of us have lost touch with what really matters to us. We long to be authentic, to stop struggling, and to reclaim a sense of meaning and purpose.


This book and audio CD, developed over years of Linda's work with clients, will teach you how to cultivate the power of pause. When we learn to pause, even in the most stressful situations, we can rest in the moment, shift our perception, clearly see our truth, and take right action to create an authentic and fulfilling life.
