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.
I am only 12 chapters into this book & I have to say that it is really great & am really excited to be lucky enough to read it. Thanks, Cindy!

|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.|
A wonderful experience. I enjoyed reading your book.
I have read Hicks & similar books. Your book has simplified the life concept for me.
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?
– 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?”
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!

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 create with you, 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!

All I can say is “wow”!!! You are such a deep thinker!!
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.
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
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
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
“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,
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!
