Before I came to Divya I was experiencing a sense that what I really wanted in life was not the way I was living at the time, and that maybe I could possibly have some of those things I’d almost been too afraid to admit to myself that I wanted. However I wasn’t sure where to start, so when I heard about divya’s work on fb I felt somehow she could help. During our sessions I discovered more about how my brain works – why its easier to keep repeating the same behavior, why we resist change, and why its so easy to dwell on the negative. I also learnt how to overcome these, and simple ways to ‘trick’ my mind, as well as retrain my thinking. This is the part of the program that my mind can make sense of, however I also learnt something else, which I wouldn’t have thought possible, and which came as a surprise when I noticed the change inside me. I learnt to love myself. All those emotions that I share so freely with others – celebrating their achievements, delighting in their company, forgiving their mistakes and seeing so much potential – I learnt to give these to myself too. I still struggle with this frequently, but it is transformational. Since then learning to love and accept and forgive myself has transformed in my world. It has meant I’ve gotten much more out of the other, more intellectual aspects, of the program. I’ve pursued things that I’ve long desired but had always felt I somehow couldn’t do or have, and I’ve realised I can have whatever I want – as long as I keep working at it. As I’ve achieved things that I had wanted so much before, I’ve also realised that there is always more to learn, and new goals to aspire to. I’m excited about what the future can bring, and where I want to go.
