I joined a Facebook women's empowerment book. Many of the women have overcome tough challenges, have created better lives for themselves and written about it as a way to help and inspire others. Sarah is one of those ladies. I am so impressed.

In 2011 I wrote The Workings of Energy in the Human Energy Field: A Psychic's Perspective. It was an urgent effort to let my clients know how I work and let the world know how energy operated in the human energy field.
Without a doubt this is the most important knowledge you could have!
The concept is simple, however applying the knowledge is really challenging mostly because we are so used to thinking a certain way and doing things a certain way and believing things we've always believed.
That original work was super short, and really, it does not need to be long to explain the basics of how energy operates. However, as the years passed I felt I could sharpen it up and round out that original writing.
I reorganized a lot of the material, added new chapters and filled out certain information. I am satisfied with this edition and will not be revising it again. It is incredible how much work it is to write a small book. It seems no amount of editing by myself and a bunch of editors is enough. I have friends who I have encouraged to write more books and they always hesitate and now I know why. Even a tiny work can take a year to bring out to the public.
The new edition is currently available in eBook format -- that you can download in the Shop -- and will be available as an audio book and a print book in about two weeks.
I recommend all new clients read The Workings of Energy in the Human Energy Field before their session. It's a great way to prepare for the session and assure that you get the most out of your session. It's short and an easy read, yet very valuable. So, I highly recommend it.
Tony Robbins Says Trying to Be Perfect Is ‘Insane’
Mar 19, 2016
Most people are anemic when it comes to decision-making. They get paralyzed by fear or lack of certainty – or they just get overwhelmed and don’t know where to start.
Leaders make the decisions that no one else can – or will – make. But the best ones use a system to ensure they are choosing the best possible option and reducing any potential downside.
I remember one time I was talking to General Schwartzkopf about mentors that have shaped our beliefs about life and decision-making. He spoke of one of the generals that he had worked for, before he was the “Stormin’ Norman” we know him as today. He recalled a situation in which the man was asked to make a decision that had been stagnant for almost 10 years. The general just looked at them and he said, “The answer is obvious, gentlemen.” And then he gave them the answer. He said, “That’s our decision. Move on it.”
After they left, Schwartzkopf went up to the general and said, “Permission to speak freely?” He replied, “Certainly.” He said, “General, I know you don’t have a clue what those guys were even talking about.”
The general smiled at him and he said, “You’re right. I didn’t understand all of it.” And he said, “But you know what? This has been a decision that no one’s been willing to make for 10 years.” He said, “For 10 years they’ve talked about it, going back and forth. The best minds have been on it, and they can’t decide one way or the other, so you know what? We need to pick one and do it. So I just did. Because I believe that now all the best people are going to go to work on it, and they’ll either make it work or they won’t. They’ll see it’s not working, and we’ll change directions, and we’ll do what’s right, but what’s happened right now is a logjam of nothingness. Decisions are power, and I’m here to make them. That’s what I’m in position for. That’s what I’m a leader for.”
Think about it. Trying to be perfect when it comes to decision-making is insane. You’ve got to stop being fearful; you’ve got to stop worrying about failure. The only failure is failing to decide, putting off what inevitably you know you need to do.
When I make tough decisions, I use a six-step process that not only helps me make the best possible decision, but also reduces the downside of any decision, because we all know that decisions have power.
The system is called OOC/EMR. I should mention that all of this should be done on paper so you don’t get stuck “looping” through potential scenarios.
Here’s how to use it:
Get clear on your outcomes.
What is the result you are after? Why do you want to achieve it? You must be clear about your outcome(s) and its (their) order of importance to you. Remember, reasons come first, answers come second.
Know your options.
Write down all of your options, including those that initially may sound far fetched. Remember this principle: One option is no choice. Two options is a dilemma. Three options is a choice. Write down ALL options whether you like them or not.
What are the consequences?
What are the upsides and downsides of each option? What do you gain by each option and what would it cost you?
Evaluate your options.
Review each of their upsides and downsides (consequences). Ask yourself:
Mitigate the damage.
Review the downside consequences for each of your remaining options. Then, brainstorm alternative ways to eliminate or reduce those downsides.
Based on the most probable consequences, select the option that provides the greatest certainty that you will meet your desired outcomes and needs.

I love this website. Rick and Irene Archer organize and interview not-so-famous people on the path of awakening.
The website has tons of interviews and a gigantic variety. The interviews are about two hours long so you really get to know the person and their experiences.
