What have you done with me? :) Your work so amazing that I want to share it with my friends.
When we finished our conversation I wanted to thank you for several reasons.
Suddenly I realized that my low headache pain vanished, that I’m full of energy. And my mind doesn’t bother me. So I decided to watch my new state, and to write email letter. So, I can only add some more things. There is something fresh inside me. Past and future can’t reach me, and I can see that everything changes. The Alchemy happened to me :) and I’m so happy.

I can’t remember when I last time felt like now.
I’m very grateful for everything.

Love,

When I met Cindy I was going through a rough time with anxiety. I met her through a friend of mine who first introduced me to Cindy’s books and then to Cindy over the holidays. I started working with Cindy in January and have made great progress. I had been off work and am on my fourth week of a gradual return to work plan. Alchemy is a wonderful and yet simple thing. I look forward to continuing to work with Cindy.

In the moment the shift happens it feels like a miracle has taken place. In the beginning I had what I would call an anger problem with playing a card game, and this happened quite frequently, where I would lose control and speak angrily to all around me!  Not nice. When I started to practice Alchemy and asked the first 2 questions, the shift from anger to fun happened in that moment and it felt so good. I did it, so thank you Cindy for showing me the way.

You are a blessing from heaven. I needed to hear what you said in just the words you said. It’s like you were speaking directly to me. I am already telling EVERYONE about you and will continue to do so. I love the way you communicate and the effectiveness of the process you use – so simple and so powerful. Your clarity is beautiful and effective because you speak from direct experience. That is so evident.

    I had an incredible session with Cindy. She has an amazing intuitive ability to change your perspective. I loved the way I “flipped” into a feeling of “I have”.

    Thanks Cindy,

    I feel like finding Cindy and discovering her simple teachings has been a magical experience which has led me to a transformation to my most natural way of being. This really feels good. I think the word alchemy is just so appropriate and fitting.

    With Cindy’s wise guidance I feel like I now have a simple formula for changing the way I feel, the way I live and essentially my whole way of being. I have been released from believing the thoughts that enter my consciousness that make me feel bad. I realize that I have the power to choose what I put my attention on. I now intend to put my attention on thoughts and experiences that feel good. I know that when I feel good I have a greater capacity to share who I truly am with the world – a loving human being.

    Thank you Cindy for your gift and your generosity of spirit. The best part is how you share your knowledge to help others rediscover the peace and joy within them that has always been there! I am truly grateful, and sincerely look forward to sharing this journey further.

  3. Cindy has taught me so much today, in our first session. I learned more today that I have in all the years I have been around. It was a pleasure to work with Cindy today and I look forward to working with her really soon. Thank you Cindy for your practical wisdom and all I have learned today.

  4. How does respect and appreciation flowing feel?

    Cindy won’t tell you how it feels to feel good, she holds a space and opening for you to experience it.

    Through her simple process of looking, recognizing, breathing, discarding and – being – WOW! I’m sure each Alchemy session is as unique as every individual but it left me lighter, more apt to deal compassionately with difficult situations and my time spent with Cindy allowed me to relax, laugh and feel – feel that I am making a positive difference and that I am worthy of… feeling. I recognize the importance of tapping into my body for insight and thanks to the tools you shared with me yesterday evening I have been doing it all day ; ) After our call I took time for myself, to breathe, stretch and felt secure, happy and productively creative.

    Thank you Cindy. Like a gold mine in this age of economy based on information and exchange, you enable people to be rich!

    NAMASTE

  5. I really enjoyed my session with Cindy! Her technique is very practical, relevant and tailored specifically for you. She will work with you on a particular ‘negative’ occasion from your own life, letting you instead experience the joy available in that occasion! You know mentally this is the way forward – Cindy provides you with a powerful quick-to-implement ‘how’. Once you tap into the feeling that you want to have in that instance, you then magnify it – so that your actions, and hence life, are progressive. Cindy can show you how an ‘empowering’ feeling can change your perspective entirely, during an otherwise ‘negative’ occasion, bringing you inner peace and joy!!

    “The onus is on the Universe” was my epiphany when working with Cindy. And what a profoundly accurate statement it is! The Universe willingly takes on all of our negative emotions and all of our thoughts so we can live in an ever expanding heart space of love and joy. And this is the heart space Cindy teaches us to rediscover.

    Thank you, Cindy, for helping me experience this clarity and sharing in the energy and laughter that followed!

    Blessings of Universal abundance to all!

    Kim, Ottawa, ON

  7. Thanks, Cindy! You really gave all your transformational talent and energy to guiding me through a very substantive shift. I am still recovering from it (need a nap!), but that means it was really awesome! Resorting what’s really important to me created some great insights, and integrating that into my energy centers ensures that true shift will take place and my world will change. I’ve been through a number of other modalities for these kinds of shifts and I find your process to be extremely effective in creating real change, at least so my body and spirit tell me. I’ll keep you posted on the changes to my outer world that will result. Big hugs!

    Thank you, Cindy, for the session this morning. It brought together so much I have understood intellectually from the Abraham works, from Gregg Braden, and others on manifesting what we want through feeling it as if we have recieved it. Yet there was a way that you helped me truly feel what it is I want and to understand what was blocking me. Thank you so much.

    Hi Cindy
    What a GIFT, What a GIFT, What a Gift, these were the words I got after getting off the phone with you today Cindy. I am now feeling Love, Joy and Happiness and some tears of JOY. I had no idea what to expect with the phone session but it was like sharing with my best friend, some personal grief issues. Which quickly dissapeared with a few short questions to my body. It was a magical experience. And something I will continue working on since I just started a 40 day spiritual cleanse yesterday. The timing of the session was perfect, although I had not thought of the phone session when planning my cleanse. But the universe was looking after me. Reading Cindy’s book was a healing experience and I can’t wait for her next books to come out.
    Congratulations Cindy in your Winning book and sharing your personal experience and healing with the world. Many blessings. Wilda

    Thank you, Cindy, for our talk today. I had this knowledge that I tend to live in my head. I have been working on being present, in the moment, and remembering to breathe. Using yoga, reiki, and meditation, I have had glimpses of how this feels. None so powerful as the time I had to speak with you this morning. I could truly feel the difference between being constricted by my thoughts and the expansiveness of being joyfully in my body. It is amazing to think we have this power and the ability to easily access and sustain it. What really blows me away is the timing of our call. The guilt, sadness, and disapproval I felt over giving up my dog was fresh and sudden. To be able to process that with you lifted my energy in a powerful exciting way. I am thankful for this new awareness. I look forward to continuing to grow, share, and practice this blessed gift.

    Thank you for the session today Cindy. I’ve been searching for a way out of my old patterns of fear and pain and sadness. And yet it’s amazing how locked in I have been to those feelings. I’m looking forward to putting this new shift in attention/awareness into action.

    Thank you for so generously giving of your time and your spirit.

    Namaste.

  13. “We don’t want things or people–we want the feeling we mistake them for.”
    –C. Teevens

    There was an aha moment when I understood these wise words of yours. I fell into how it would feel to have what I wanted. I accessed it and yet nothing had changed in my world other than allowing myself to have it. I have the power! I still access that feeling as I sit here typing, and it is sweet indeed!

    Thank you Cindy for your spiritual wisdom, for the simplicity and practicality of your wonderful technique, for your generosity, and for your God-filled laughter.

    May you continue to be blessed and be a blessing in all you do.

    with the Love we are,

    I enjoyed my session with Cindy! Cindy’s technique is very practical and tailored specifically for you and your life. She will work with you on a particular instance from your own life, and let you experience the joy available to you in that instance. Once you can tap into the feeling that you want to have in that instance, you can then magnify it and let it grow exponentially. The key is to identify a specific instance in time, not a theme in your life in general, and Cindy will guide you through the rest. Cindy can show you how a “feelingization” can change your perspective entirely, and simply, bring you joy. Who doesn’t need more of that?

  15. Dear Cindy;

    Thank you so much for the wonderful session and sharing your amazing insights and wisdom with me. I LOVED IT! I felt like I was talking to a long lost friend and you made so many things clearer for me. The simplicity of your work and the way you explain it is just great but the impact of it is (was) very powerful. I loved how you would catch me and show me by using your questions how to see the truth in every experience.

    Deep down within us all we know what you are speaking about is true, and that is why I am really looking forward to your book and wish you every success with it. The Alchemy of Love and Joy is going to help so many people and what a blessing you came to realize this and find a way to communicate it to us so we can all experience our own JOY. I would highly recommend people book a session with you and of course BUY THE BOOK when it comes out.

    Thank you for sharing your JOY with me, it was a fun and magical conversation that has already helped me see things more clearly.

    Blessings and love;

    Sharon

    Cindy, thank you so much for sharing your beautifully simplistic and powerful ways to truly shift yourself/attitude through awareness. The tools you shared with my husband and myself are a treasured gift that we will put into practice by asking those few questions to get us back into wholeness and love. Although we initially called about our daughter, you helped us to realize the importance of not just holding the space for her, but ultimately taking responsibility for only our OWN selves. May the work you do be blessed. Thank you once more.

    Full of gratitude,
    Veronica and Zeke Rios, USA

    Hi Cindy,

    Thank-you for taking the time to help me and for sharing your wonderful insights with me.

    This session felt “heavenly” and there simply are no words to describe it. It is more of a “feeling it”!!!

    After we hung up the phone, I rejoiced and celebrated in this wonderful realization and another one came along which made me laugh (busted once again!). If I cannot celebrate who I am then it is difficult to celebrate who others are. I thought to myself, “I really love the part where I thought my friend should do it for me”. I can now celebrate not only who I am but also who others are, this is what makes me very happy. I am back to being present, feeling joyful and ecstatic.

    This truly is alchemy.

    You are wonderful and beautiful. It was really easy talking with you, and I enjoyed our wonderful, laughter-filled conversation.

    Love and gratitude,
    Christine xox

    Hi Cindy,

    It was an amazing experience to share/play with someone like yourself who knows the territory of who we truly are so intimately. And I thoroughly enjoyed being busted on seemingly innocent statements that actually hide the habit of limiting and constricting, and thereby mask our true nature, which is joy….or, like I had learned in my yoga training (but didn’t really “get” at the time), Sat-chit-ananda, meaning “knowledge, existence and bliss absolute”.

    I especially appreciated your notion of practicing being happy for no reason, and even more so when I realized that that’s what I’ve been doing lately in the morning when I awaken. It is so liberating to know that there is a whole different way of living within the world than the one we were “programmed” to believe was the truth.

    As I look back on my life from this perspective, I realize this process, which I now call ‘ending the Search”, began 5 years ago, but I had no idea what was really happening. Things were dropping away, but there was still a lot of pain and confusion. Then 2 years ago, “the Search” did end, but I wasn’t sure what that meant, only that it was now impossible for me to operate from the old world view I had of trying to fix my imperfect self.

    Now things are opening in an exponential way, and I find myself being highly amused by what used to cause me intense suffering. I laugh a lot more. The world is bright and full of magic. Life is much more fun. It has now become a process of deepening or expanding, and I am experiencing the invitation to live in the truth of who I really am in everything around me, including the marvelous, laughter-filled conversation I had with you.

    With much love and gratitude,
    Leslie

    I’ve just had a session with Cindy. It is wondrous how quickly my experience has changed. From feeling sad, hopeless, discouraged and lost to feeling incredible peace, present, calm and a quiet joy that is expansive – expanding as I now speak about it :)

    This is a magical switch! This practice has literally switched the track I was on to experiencing and wanting more and more joy!

    The most important gift in my doing this practice of Alchemy, which is quick and simple (but wow!) is that it experientially revealed how my negative beliefs were just negative thoughts I believed!! And it was the believing of them that made me feel so bad. But they were just thoughts and they could be dropped!!! And in dropping them instantly their power dissolved, and so did my sadness. In fact I was laughing from how easy the relief was, and also from the illusion being revealed of how truly unfounded those thoughts were that I was so fervently believing!

    This practice is indeed alchemy as it transformed my experience before my open eyes and in my body and mind – and especially my heart. It brought me to truth, and truth’s beauty is the undeniable-ness of it when found. In all it’s glory and all it’s joy and it’s unlimited potential.

    Thank you Cindy for so generously sharing your insight into how feeling joy is important to cultivate. In my view a very astute discovery! The truth really does set us free and how great to travel there on the wings of joy!!!

I have just read the first seventeen chapters of your book the Alchemy of love and Joy. I found your writing to be so refreshing, honest, and very inspiring. One of many favorite lines you wrote is this one…Love is not the way, Love is! Period…I will purchase this fantastic book, and it will become a staple in my ascension therapy practice. Everyone will benefit and “feel” joy from your experiences and insights. Congratulations! I will share your page and book with all my fb friends.

As I read your book I thought about the courage it takes to share one’s story and the healing that takes place as a result. I truly believe that your book will inspire many to make the journey within and to heal what they find. The process you offer works very well I use it often. Thank you for sharing your journey and your learnings.

I didn’t want to mention anything on sunday by fear of getting upset but since reading your book I have meditated and/or contemplated the feelings the perfect partner would bring me, asking myself all the questions. Well, during my last session (I haven’t really worked on that part of my life since that evening) an AMAZING feeling of pure love, peace and mostly security went all over me. It was unbelievable and I started crying, the feeling was so overwhelming but I couldn’t go back to finding the feeling again. Do I just keep doing the exercise over and over, work through the crying while doing so?

Regards, Julie

– From Cindy

Yes, continue to practice through it, keeping your eyes open and feeling into your whole body. So long as this is crying with joy, and the crying does not feel bad, simply keep enjoying the good feeling. If the crying is a bad feeling, then something is missing, so start over and ask yourself “What do I want?”

Namaste,
Cindy

Thank you so much for both emails Cindy. The tears were from happiness! From feeling something SO good, something I never felt like before. I wish you the best in your adventure of life and I’m sure we will see you around some more. I’m going to practice practice practice, it’s gonna be my new yoga!

Thanks a million for being so much help!

I enjoyed the afternoon yesterday. I truly enjoy every word said, it is very helpful for me to become a beautiful, peaceful person, full of love.

Yesterday the part that really clicked with me is when your friend asked you what to say when people comment “are you in denial?” That part about focusing on one negative thing to the point that you are eliminating the rest of reality (and eliminating all the good stuff)… wow, that hit the spot. That is so true, I’m glad you mentioned that. I never realized how negative thoughts really do make us blind to the good stuff. It makes “living in a happy place” so worth it! I’m getting really good at deflecting the negative now, it happens less and less. I’m taming my “old mind” it is virtually non-existant now! Yippee!

Thank you so much for sharing. You are a wonderful person and the world is a better place having you in it!

Alan, Eugene, Oregon

I think it is a really good book and will contribute a lot to helping humanity live more joyfully.

I started with ACIM in about 1990, and have zig zagged in and out of peace, but in what feels like a steady path towards living more consistently in peace. And your book, like other important ones, helps a lot.

My experience is that your perspective helps me understand why the spiritual path works. What I had been doing was essentially firing the demanding mind as master, and letting the body relax into just being, even though the demanding mind is not satisfied. And that is sort of like what you describe with giving yourself what it feels like to have your partner there, even if you have broken up. It is like a decision to feel the good feelings, even though the outside world, and our demanding mind might not be giving you permission to feel the good feelings.

So your book has helped keep me on that path of ignoring the demands of the mind, and just feeling what it feels like to let the body rest.

Cindy

It goes both ways Christine :-) , because of course this is no separation. My thanks for your rising in mind and experience! It is a joy to create with you, Cindy :-)

Cindy:

You do a great job of explaining how to give yourself whatever it is you want first and then sharing that with others. Your bit on unconditional love is AWESOME!

Thanks for alchemy!

Sue re: Alchemy

All I can say is “wow”!!! You are such a deep thinker!!
Thank you for your openness Cindy – it is a kind of sacred specialness to be allowed a glimpse into such a personal place.

Its great..I feel like nothing can get to me…Great feeling! Merci! Merci! Merci! You are a good soul…

I tried this last night as I found myself yawning with friends at dinner. When the conversation turned for a moment, I quietly asked myself “what do I want” (to feel energized), “how does it feel” (I feel strong, I feel like laughing, very happy) and it took some concentration because I wasn’t alone, but it worked :)

PS–at this point, it’s becoming more of a habit to ask the question and curb some of the silly thoughts – and that’s a very good thing !

REPLY FROM CINDY: This is *very* good to hear….

That is a depth one can only realize for themselves, that when you stop being needy, when you are self-fulfilled, you also begin to give yourself peace.

Smitty

It reminded me that no one can make me feel anything I do not want to feel. It is up to me to decide how I am going to feel at any given time. I can now decide if I am going to let life beat me down, or find joy and happiness everyday no matter what life sends my way. After all life is all about perception, one person’s hell is another person’s heaven. If I choose to look at the world in a positive way, my perception of the world would most likely be positive. The world has not changed, just my perception of it. It is easy to find the negative in the world, but it takes a little effort to find the good. That kind of effort seems worth the reward. Thanks for writing your book Cindy, Smitty :)

Lynn

Thank you! for taking the time…. its So thoughtful of you….I see that you are very kind-hearted and have Love in abundance to share… very very nice….and most of all I see that you are very humble… Very nice combo! wow! wow! keep up the good work.. where can I send you the payment for your book which I am So enjoying….Merci! encore une fois….and I would like to know when is the next meeting….all the best… Lynn :)

Dina

I have really enjoyed our last meetup, and it was a real pleasure getting to know you. I had attended a couple of meetups previously with other groups, but none of them had the same impact this one had on me. I can proudly say that I have been feeling joyful ever since the meeting until now :) You are a very remarkable and influential person, and the fact that you’re following up with us on a personal basis shows what a genuinely caring person you are!

I will definitely post comments on the meetup, and on the book after I finish reading it. I look forward to meeting with you again and again. I will keep an eye on any upcoming events. Thank you very much for sharing your experiences with us, and for your passion for spreading the joy you’re experiencing. I wish you more and more joy!

“Yesterday, it was so warm outside, I had a craving for ice cream in the afternoon. A really strong craving. But, when I stopped my mind from racing, I asked myself, what do I want. I said ice cream! Then I said, I wanted the taste and feel of ice cream in my mouth…the sweetness and cool taste…I started to salivate just thinking about it and I realized I had given myself exactly what I was craving…without eating any! Now, that’s what I call a diet that lets you have anything you want without gaining an ounce! Once I had the taste and feeling of ice cream within me, I went to the fridge and grabbed an apple! Yum!”—BP, Ottawa

Faye, Ottawa

“Thanks so much for sharing your experience. It was worth it just to be in your presence and energy. I love your idea and I’ll start applying it now.

I sometimes experience moments of empowering joy, particularly when in the company of trees or the moon, but also at seemingly inexplicable times, and I always appreciate that feeling… but the concept of consciously working to make that feeling grow is something that hadn’t occurred to me until I heard it from you. Thanks for helping me take it to a new level!

Sometimes I experience these moments of joy when walking alone in a crowd of strangers. At these times, I feel I might begin to dance rather than walk, without even knowing it (something your experience in Staples reminded me of).

On my way home from the grocery store tonight, I listened to my mp3 player on the “shuffle songs” setting, and I came across a song I didn’t even know I had. Somehow this song reminded me of you. It just gave me a strong feeling of joy and happiness, and it felt like the same energy I got from you. I’ve attached it, as I wanted to share it with you.

Thanks, and I hope to meet you again,”

Thank you so much for contacting me about your wonderful book. Your book is sensational and I applaud your journey. As I read your story and about your search for Joy, I found so many common threads and themes in my life. May I offer you all best wishes in your continued success,

All the best,

Cristine

Your book is so good… it’s a breakthrough for me! A real breakthrough, I will read it over and over again because something clicked when I read this and I know that it’s the key that I was missing. This element that I was missing–every page, “yes, yes, yes, she’s right.”

I’ve been practicing law of attraction for four years now, but it seems that you gave me the key to my happiness, and I know that I will achieve it. I understand it, I can practice it, and I know it works. You made a big difference in my life just by reading your book. Thank-you!

    Holy smokes! Ever since I have enrolled in the Alchemy program, I have seen incredible improvements in all areas of my life. As a parent of an exceptional yet “challenging” child, Cindy has offered me a life line and solid anchor to ground me on those days that use to bring me “past the end of my rope”. Just as dramatic, and maybe even more so, is the support I have received in transform my somewhat tumultuous marriage into a stable and positive relationship! For all this I am extremely grateful. Thank you Cindy.
    PS – To everyone reading this who is considering Alchemy, do yourself a huge favour and don’t procrastinate. Do it today and you’ll be glad you did.

I’m getting really good at deflecting the negative now, it happens less and less. I’m taming my “old mind” it is virtually non-existant now! Yippee!

    Thank you so much for sharing. You are a wonderful person and the world is a better place having you in it!

    I think it is a really good book and will contribute a lot to helping humanity live more joyfully.

    I started with ACIM in about 1990, and have zig zagged in and out of peace, but in what feels like a steady path towards living more consistently in peace. And your book, like other important ones, helps a lot.

    My experience is that your perspective helps me understand why the spiritual path works. What I had been doing was essentially firing the demanding mind as master, and letting the body relax into just being, even though the demanding mind is not satisfied. And that is sort of like what you describe with giving yourself what it feels like to have your partner there, even if you have broken up. It is like a decision to feel the good feelings, even though the outside world, and our demanding mind might not be giving you permission to feel the good feelings.

    So your book has helped keep me on that path of ignoring the demands of the mind, and just feeling what it feels like to let the body rest.

    It goes both ways Christine :-), because of course this is no separation. My thanks for your rising in mind and experience! It is a joy to co-create with you, Cindy :-)

  10. Felix Mamur, Indonesia/Australia

    I just want to say thank you SO much for creating your e-book.

    For a background, I’m a Buddhist practitioner and I also read lots of
    Eckhart Tolle’s books so I found your teachings resonate with me very
    much. Every time I read your book, I always get what they usually
    called an “A-ha moment” where I suddenly experience deep understanding
    of what you are saying. I even print out your e-book so that I can
    read it anytime I want.

    These are probably three of my favorite quotes from the book that
    function as helpful reminders for me every time I feel depressed or
    experience lots of negative thoughts:

    1. Just because you feel the effect of negative thought does not mean
    that the thought is real or true.

    2. Suffering means it is time to feel good – nothing else.

    3. Things are not inherently good or bad; our feeling good or bad is.
    Everything that is, is.

    Anyway, I just want to say thanks again for sharing the e-book and I
    really hope many people will read your book because for me, this is
    probably one of the most powerful and transformational book that I’ve
    ever read.

    Thanks a lot,
    Felix

  11. Irene A

    A, Ottawa…….I thank you so much for the courage it must have taken for you to write your story. Isn’t “Alchemy” just the most precious gift? I am so happy that Cindy is spreading her ‘awakening and love’ and all of us who read her book, started the ‘practice’ and can’t help but ‘spreading’ it.
    Now, that is something to be involved in and like a drop added to a fast growing river….
    Lots of Love, I.

  12. A., Ottawa

    Thanks so much for writing and sharing your book. It has been very helpful to me and to the way I feel.

    I was your father two years ago! The only difference is I didn’t die. I just wanted to, but I couldn’t finish the job, even in the drunken, depressed, hopeless state I was in.

    I was gradually starting to feel less depressed and I am starting to become a good father again. I have read a few spiritual books like The Four Agreements, and A New Earth.

    I was convinced that spirituality was the answer. But when I read your book it was an instant spiritual awakening, now knowing that I can feel good all the time. I have begun to practice feeling good and guess what? It feels good!

    Thank you again for sharing what you have learned. That is very loving of you! I will continue to read your book and continue to practice feeling good and continue to practice love.

  13. Bruce Black

    Cindy, thanks so much for your book! You have taken what was for me a life long
    journey to find peace and happiness and put it all into one FREE e-book.

    You have truly found what Jesus meant when he said “the kingdom of Heaven is within”. You and your work are critical as we come into the next stage of human evolution.

    I have passed your book on to loved ones who have also been dramatically changed. God Bless you in all your endeavors.

    I’m still following you on twitter which is where I discovered your book, your daily reminders are a great help to stop and feel the awesome presence of Joy within.

  14. B.T., Ottawa

    Really glad that I made your lecture. I was practicing while I was camping on vacation. I caught poison ivy on my second day there and there was no “suffering” involved. Yes, there was itchiness and it was like you described during your talk. An interesting sensation. I am sure it was way less serious as I was able to go the entire 4 days and only scratched once !!

    Also, I had really wanted this ex-boyfriend to be there camping with me – I have been obsessed with him since we broke up…and was using the practice to feel his presence. It has helped me to not phone him on several occasions.

  15. Michelle De Angelis, Ottawa

    Cindy;
    Thank you so much for opening your home and soul. You’re an amazing leader and teacher. I have my joy back! I have not stopped smiling or feeling so *good* Words fail me to express what my body and mind is saying.
    I want to write you a song, a poem, a dance and show you a rainbow.
    LoL
    Cause you gave me the way to get out of the ebb and stay in the flow!
    The lessons I learned in those few but “extended” hours of loving conversation I’ll cherish. and use. and share. Thank you.
    Namaste sweet love.

  16. J.Myers, Vancouver

    Thank you so much my ‘little bundle of JOY”, you certainly ‘walk the talk’ and I will practice, practice, practice. By the way here is what my friend from Vancouver wrote to me last night …about AJ: (–I.A, Ottawa)

    Thanks so much for sending the ebook….I just read it and I’m tingling from head to toe. This is so IT! And the crazy thing is, I get it! And even better, I am BEING it!!! –J.Myers, Vancouver

  17. Paul C, Ottawa

    Just a quick note to say that I found you on Meetup.com some weeks ago and looked at your website in more detail today and read pretty much all that you wrote on it.

    I then requested and received your free copy of your book. So first, thanks so much for making it available to people for free. That’s very generous of you.

    I started reading it and on Page 3 (Gratitude), second paragraph, you state “or as put in my Alchemy poetry book: One is all and all is one.”

    Now, I’ve often heard this maxim before. But just before I got home from a long drive, I was playing my favorite song over and over again in my car and I was still playing it in my head as I was reading information from your website.

    I thought about this maxim and about what you’re doing (helping others find joy and end their sufferings) and something hit a note with me – and I thought that, in a way, you could say the last few lyrics of my favorite song (which is an all-time hit and most requested song ever) kind of describe you and what you’re doing:

    And as we wind on down the road
    Our shadows taller than our soul
    There walks a lady we all know
    Who shines white light and wants to show
    How everything still turns to gold
    And if you listen very hard
    The truth will come to you at last
    When all are one and one is all
    To be a rock and not to roll

    And she’s buying a stairway
    To heaven…

    Stairway To Heaven by Led Zeppelin, was written by the lead singer, Robert Plant. And he stated at a concert in the 70s that he believes that this is a song of hope.

    Thought I’d share that with you. My little way of giving back I guess :-)

    Thanks again Cindy,
    Paul

  18. Lisa Maxham Purefoy, San Jose, California

    I’d downloaded your e-book but hadn’t yet had a chance to read through it. I’ve just finished today, however, and I’d love to share my thoughts.

    I found the insights shared in your book to be deeply profound. At a time when I’m at something of a crossroads in my life, your book really spoke to me about freeing myself from the past, from the unnecessary things I’ve allowed to block myself along the way. Your own experiences were very inspiring, and I’m grateful you chose to share them, and the realizations you had from them.

    Your book has given me a lot of excellent ideas, and a lot of things to take to heart. I cannot wait to make them a regular part of my daily practice.

    Thank you so much, again, for sharing this book with me.

    Warmest regards,
    Lisa

  19. Judith, Ottawa

    Thank you so much for the lecture last evening. I was the annoying person in the front row at your far left. I was curious, apprehensive, critical, but truly wanted to understand your message. Seemed too good to be true. I am the one who, at the end, asked you to sign your CD. When I got home, I downloaded and printed your book. I read ’till 2:00 a.m.

    I feel so happy and excited today. Like the others, this is not the first step on my journey. But, I believe, this step is the most important. WHY? Because you have given me the tools to find and work with what I want. I have read books that said simply STOP the negative thoughts. O.K. Meditate. O.K. But then what? (A favourite university prof one told me “When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.”) I now have a resplendent toolbox.

    Now, I know know what. What do I want? How does it feel. Simply amazing. I do know however, that it will require work. The initial euphoria will evaporate without a sustaining environment. I hope to join you in further work.

  20. Irene, Ottawa

    Thank you Cindy for such a wonderful ‘message’ last night. I must have been so anxious, since I turned up one day early……only to find the doors locked!!!

    Just having finally met you elevated my ‘energy’ and I am on a ‘rush’……you know the feeling when a long searched for puzzle piece is found and entered into the ‘waiting opening’!!

  21. @GeorgeArtz

    Thank you , reading your book at the moment.

    I have only had fleeting moments of inexpressible joy. Actually only 2 I remember really clearly.

    years ago, sitting outside reading , suddenly I felt unbridled happiness and pure joy, for all of 5 seconds! U give me hope!

    still reading, about half way

    have read Hicks. Last night & similar books, love them all.

    yes, conscious control was what was lacking in me, has taken me 60 years to learn this is possible!!!!!!!

    I have Tolle’s books too. Your book has simplified it for me, or should I say, crystallized it for me.

    yes u r absolutely right I often limit my own joy, put a lid on it! silly me!

    I am constantly searching for answers and your answers are the clearest I have encountered.

  23. Steve Sonnefeld, Philadelphia Pennsylvania

    Thank you for the wonderful book. I started to read it last night and could not believe the insights it brought. I plan on giving your website details out to all of my meditation students. I am certain that it will prove extremely helpful to them.

    When you do begin traveling, if you are ever in the Philadelphia Pennsylvania area, drop me an e-mail and I would love to help you in any way that I can….. maybe a book signing, or a lecture. Take care Cindy and THANK YOU :-)

  25. Tan Teong Hin, Singapore

    I found your e-book two days ago. What you have written in your e-book were truly profound and really resonate with me. I was caught in a traffic jam this morning, and I decided to put the method to practice and in no time I was feeling the joy of having a fast and unobstructed ride down the highway even though I was moving at a turtle pace.

    Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful gift with the whole World (I am half way around the world in Singapore).

  26. Christine

    I have been practicing with Cindy for more than 12 hours over the last four weeks. With the simple, yet very efficient method she proposes, I was able to greatly increase my ability to feel good in all circumstances.

    In terms of the Law of Attraction, this is what it means:

    “It is our absolute promise to you that when you understand the power of feeling good now, no matter what, you will hold the key to the achievement of any state of being, any state of health, any state of wealth, or any state of anything that you desire.” Abraham, as channeled by Esther Hicks, in Ask and it is given, p.4

  27. Steve Sonnefeld

    Thank you for the wonderful book. I started to read it last night and could not believe the insights it brought.

    Thank you so much! I received both of your MP3′s and also your Poem file. It looks beautiful. I will be able to get the MP3′s on my player and listen to them for the next 2 weeks. I plan on giving your website details out to all of my meditation students. I am certain that it will prove extremely helpful to them.

  28. BP in Ottawa

    Cindy:

    You do a great job of explaining how to give yourself whatever it is you want first and then sharing that with others. Your bit on unconditional love is AWESOME!

    Thanks for awakening joy!

  29. Sue re: Alchemy

    All I can say is “wow”!!! You are such a deep thinker!!
    Thank you for your openness Cindy – it is a kind of sacred specialness to be allowed a glimpse into such a personal place.
    This poetic artistic media touches deeply in the heart of the reader.

    I tried this last night as I found myself yawning with friends at dinner. When the conversation turned for a moment, I quietly asked myself “what do I want” (to feel energized), “how does it feel” (I feel strong, I feel like laughing, very happy) and it took some concentration because I wasn’t alone, but it worked :)

    PS–at this point, it’s becoming more of a habit to ask the question and curb some of the silly thoughts – and that’s a very good thing !

    REPLY FROM CINDY: This is *very* good to hear….

    That is a depth one can only realize for themselves, that when you stop being needy, when you are self-fulfilled, you also begin to give yourself peace.

  31. Smitty

    It reminded me that no one can make me feel anything I do not want to feel. It is up to me to decide how I am going to feel at any given time. I can now decide if I am going to let life beat me down, or find joy and happiness everyday no matter what life sends my way. After all life is all about perception, one person’s hell is another person’s heaven. If I choose to look at the world in a positive way, my perception of the world would most likely be positive. The world has not changed, just my perception of it. It is easy to find the negative in the world, but it takes a little effort to find the good. That kind of effort seems worth the reward. Thanks for writing your book Cindy, Smitty :)

    I have really enjoyed our last meetup, and it was a real pleasure getting to know you. I had attended a couple of meetups previously with other groups, but none of them had the same impact this one had on me. I can proudly say that I have been feeling joyful ever since the meeting until now :) You are a very remarkable and influential person, and the fact that you’re following up with us on a personal basis shows what a genuinely caring person you are!

    I will definitely post comments on the meetup, and on the book after I finish reading it. I look forward to meeting with you again and again. I will keep an eye on any upcoming events. Thank you very much for sharing your experiences with us, and for your passion for spreading the joy you’re experiencing. I wish you more and more joy!

    “Yesterday, it was so warm outside, I had a craving for ice cream in the afternoon. A really strong craving. But, when I stopped my mind from racing, I asked myself, what do I want. I said ice cream! Then I said, I wanted the taste and feel of ice cream in my mouth…the sweetness and cool taste…I started to salivate just thinking about it and I realized I had given myself exactly what I was craving…without eating any! Now, that’s what I call a diet that lets you have anything you want without gaining an ounce! Once I had the taste and feeling of ice cream within me, I went to the fridge and grabbed an apple! Yum!”—BP, Ottawa

  35. Faye, Ottawa

    “Thanks so much for sharing your experience. It was worth it just to be in your presence and energy. I love your idea and I’ll start applying it now.

    I sometimes experience moments of empowering joy, particularly when in the company of trees or the moon, but also at seemingly inexplicable times, and I always appreciate that feeling… but the concept of consciously working to make that feeling grow is something that hadn’t occurred to me until I heard it from you. Thanks for helping me take it to a new level!

    Sometimes I experience these moments of joy when walking alone in a crowd of strangers. At these times, I feel I might begin to dance rather than walk, without even knowing it (something your experience in Staples reminded me of).

    On my way home from the grocery store tonight, I listened to my mp3 player on the “shuffle songs” setting, and I came across a song I didn’t even know I had. Somehow this song reminded me of you. It just gave me a strong feeling of joy and happiness, and it felt like the same energy I got from you. I’ve attached it, as I wanted to share it with you.

    Thanks, and I hope to meet you again,”
    —Faye, Ottawa

    Thank you so much for contacting me about your wonderful book. Your book is sensational and I applaud your journey. As I read your story and about your search for Joy, I found so many common threads and themes in my life. May I offer you all best wishes in your continued success,

    All the best,
    Jordanna Lake

  37. Cristine

    Your book is so good… it’s a breakthrough for me! A real breakthrough, I will read it over and over again because something clicked when I read this and I know that it’s the key that I was missing. This element that I was missing–every page, “yes, yes, yes, she’s right.”

    I’ve been practicing law of attraction for four years now, but it seems that you gave me the key to my happiness, and I know that I will achieve it. I understand it, I can practice it, and I know it works. You made a big difference in my life just by reading your book. Thank-you!
