Change Nation: Gay Hendricks, part 1 (05/22/09)

Gay Hendricks, part 1 on Improving Relationships

Please upgrade your Adobe Flash Player to view this content.

Gay Hendricks of The Hendricks Institute discusses with Ariane his new book, The Big Leap, in this first of a two-part Change Nation. Gay says he realized in the 1970s that "almost everybody has an upper-limit thermostat setting on how much love and abundance and positive energy that they will allow themselves to feel." He focuses on helping anyone live at the level of personal genius. He begins by suggesting we should listen to the words we speak, works up to discussing our worthiness of being loved, and ends with the idea that we should commit to transcending our upper limits.


I am Susan Larry from Finland. Thanks to this great man of spirit called Dr Oviasu which I don't know how to thank him for the good work he has done for me and my family which i want to share my testimony with you all, for six years now my husband left me with two kids with know reason which I don't know what to do, so one day i was in my friends place when I exposed my pain to her about my depression which I have be looking for who to help me out of it then my friend called me closer to her self telling me on how she got this great man of spirit who helped her found her way to get her husband back then I ask of his contact she quickly go and get her computer and gave me his Email address oviasuspirituallovespellcaster@gmail.com and his number so, that is how I contacted him for a help.

Terrific! Now, whenever I find myself worrying, I can recognize it as a sign that I'm touching an "upper limit."
I'll stop and question it. What's the upper limit I'm hitting here?
What do I love about it?
What is it keeping from me?
Do I really want to own responsibility for pushing through this limit? (It is usually something I've been asking for!) What/who will I become once I've transcended? Transcending is my choice - is this in alignment with my core values/identity in the world?
How can I transcend it?
Also, love that we don't "have" time; we "make" time for what we love!
Can't wait to hear Part 2 !
