Thursday, January 31, 2019

Apply powerful Inner Bonding practices to give yourself the love you never received…

And discover how to use self-love — instead of media, food, shopping, and other addictions — to fill your inner emptiness.


Do you tend to seek love from others instead of searching for it within yourself?

Are you taking care of others to the extent that you're neglecting your own needs?

What if you could bring your attention back to yourself and receive love from YOU, just as a loving parent provides for her child?

Your deepest healing and spiritual liberation may be rooted in your capacity to do just that...

... advocating for your needs...

... making space for you to “attach” in healthy ways...

... recognizing and accepting your feelings...

... encouraging your gifts to shine...

... and taking spiritually guided actions that make you feel truly loved.

Discover That You Hold the Unconditional Love You Seek

Deep down, you may feel you’re unlovable. Inadequate. Ashamed. Or you may believe you need to improve in some way in order to be “whole” (or before others will love you).

These are simply parts of you that haven’t fully healed... yet.

If you want to experience true freedom, a sense of worthiness simply for being YOU, and authentic relationships that don’t require you to give up you for love and approval (which only re-wounds you and puts undue pressure on others!), it’s time to discover true self-love.


This aspect of growth and healing is rarely — if ever — addressed by current approaches. And yet, a lack of unconditional self-love and forming healthy attachments in childhood underlies many challenges later in life — from relationship struggles to addiction, anxiety, and depression.

Underneath, there’s almost always a place where you’re rejecting or abandoning yourself — without even realizing it.

Inner Bonding can change all of this...

This proven 6-step process empowers you to meet your own needs for love and approval. By forming healthy attachments with the parts of you that have felt neglected, ignored, or wounded, you no longer feel compelled to look outside yourself for relief or healing.

You finally meet the WHOLE you with unconditional love. You feel worthy of good things. Your life gets fuller and more exciting — and your relationships become more loving and harmonious.

A Proven Process for Healing... and Fully Loving Yourself

Co-created by Dr. Margaret Paul, the renowned psychologist and bestselling author of Do I Have To Give Up Me to Be Loved By You?, Inner Bonding begins with compassionate, deep inquiry to access and heal the wounded parts of yourself.

It also requires willingness (as well as curiosity!) to learn from your most vulnerable and painful emotions about your unmet needs — and then meet them as a healthy, present, and loving parent would.

The techniques of Inner Bonding are remarkably effective with virtually anyone, and have positively affected tens of thousands worldwide — including GRAMMY award-winning artist Alanis Morissette, a champion of the Inner Bonding process.

During Finally, Truly Loving Yourself, you’ll discover the core insights and practices of this groundbreaking approach to unconditional self-love and a deeper connection with the Divine...

Inner Bonding really nurtures and fosters the
relationship between self and spirit. Personally, it has
helped every relationship that I have. I’m so grateful to
Margaret for bringing Inner Bonding to people in the
generous, nurturing way that she has.
— Alanis Morissette, Singer-songwriter

Inner Bonding: The Key to Forming Healthy Attachments

Psychology has shown that different levels of secure attachment are essential for a developing child. Without these healthy attachments, we may feel lost, rejected, or unworthy, maybe all of our lives...

With or without trauma, virtually all of us reach adulthood with parts of us feeling disregarded, judged, or outright abandoned.

Now, though, you can apply the 6-step methodology of Inner Bonding to establish clear, loving connections between these different aspects of your personality.

You’ll be taken through these six steps in a precise way — giving you not only an experience of unconditional love in the present, but the means to keep working with different aspects of yourself in the future.

You’ll discover how to dialogue with your feelings, pain, anxiety, self-hatred, and fear, as well as how to get to the core of self-abandonment and shame. You’ll begin connecting to higher guidance around your beliefs, and take loving actions that reinforce positive shifts.

And you’ll discover how to establish new brain pathways for truly loving yourself.

6 Steps to Inner Bonding

  • Step1.png
    Willingness to Feel Pain and Take Responsibility for Your Feelings

    Move into the present moment and focus within, tuning into your feelings — the physical sensations within the body. Choose to be mindful of and pay attention to all distressing feelings rather than protect against them with substance and process addictions. Make a conscious decision that you WANT to take responsibility for your feelings.

  • Step2.png
    Move Into the Intent to Learn

    Invite the compassionate presence of Spirit into your heart to help you learn what you may be doing or thinking that may be causing your pain, or what may be happening externally that needs your attention. When you are in the intent to learn, you are a loving adult. When you are in the intent to protect and avoid, you are operating from your shame-based ego, wounded self, or child-adult. In Step Two, you welcome and embrace all of your feelings with compassion.

  • Step3.png
    Dialogue With Your Wounded Self and Core Self

    Discover the thoughts and false beliefs from your wounded self that may be causing your shame, fear, and pain... release anger and pain in appropriate ways... learn about the past that created the false beliefs... nurture your wounded self... explore what may be happening with a person or event that is causing the core feelings of loneliness, heartache, heartbreak, helplessness, or grief... explore your core Self and what brings you joy.

  • Step4.png
    Dialogue With Your Higher Guidance

    Ask your spiritual guidance (whatever that is for you): What is the truth about the thoughts and false beliefs you may have uncovered in Step Three? What is the loving behavior toward your Inner Child in this situation? What is in your highest good? What does being kind to yourself look like? Open and allow the answers to come through you in words, pictures, or feelings. The answers may not come immediately, but if you have a sincere desire to learn, they will come.

  • Step5.png
    Take Loving Action

    Tell yourself the truth, and take the loving action that came through from your guidance in Step Four. Put God/Spirit into action. Consciously move into gratitude for the guidance that is always there for you.

  • Step6.png
    Evaluate Your Action

    Check in to see if your pain, anger, and shame are getting healed. If not, go back through the steps until you discover the truth and actions that bring you peace, joy, and a deep sense of intrinsic worth. These steps will come alive for you as you learn and practice the Inner Bonding process.

During this 7-week live video training, you’ll:

  • Learn how to share love, rather than seek to get love
  • Gain relief from pain, anger, and shame
  • End unhealthy relationship patterns
  • Get to the root of what’s causing depression and anxiety
  • Discover how to use self-love — instead of food — to fill emptiness
  • Approach new relationships from a stance of fullness instead of neediness
  • Release and heal outdated beliefs about yourself
  • Move out of stagnation into a life of aliveness, passion, and purpose
  • Understand and diminish your addictive patterns
  • Gain deeper insights into, and freedom from, repeating patterns you don’t want — relationship fights, addictions, and/or attracting the same type of people
  • Enhance your ability to resolve conflicts and communicate
  • Deepen your spiritual practices by freeing up some of your past so you can rise to higher frequencies more regularly
  • Move beyond feelings of victimhood, powerlessness, and hopelessness
  • Discover how to love others in a self-responsible and adult way

What You’ll Discover in These 7 Weeks

Course sessions are on Thursdays at 4:00pm Pacific.

In this 7-week program, Dr. Margaret Paul will teach you how to transform your life through a self-healing process that creates a shift into true self-love and establishes a daily personal connection and dialogue with a loving source of higher guidance.

Each weekly teaching, inquiry, and practice session will build harmoniously upon the next so you’ll develop a complete understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to truly love yourself and share your love with others.

Module 1: Beginning Your Inner Journey (January 31)


In this first session, we’ll explore how, at the deepest level, only two paths in life are available to us: “the path of fear” and “the path of courage and love.” Underlying the choice between these two paths is the moment-by-moment choice of one of two intentions.

In this module, you’ll discover:

  • Four different aspects of yourself that need to be understood and eventually integrated
  • The intent to learn about loving yourself and the intent to avoid pain through some form of controlling behavior
  • How to heal various forms of controlling behavior that stem from self-rejection and self-abandonment
  • How to integrate your essence, ego-wounded self, loving adult, and higher Self
  • The 6 Steps of Inner Bonding
  • A practice to make you aware of the consequences of each intention

Module 2: Getting to Know & Compassionately Accept Your Wounded Self (February 7)


In this session, we’ll go deeply into your survival mechanism — the part of you that got you through difficult times as you were growing up. You’ll become aware of the role of modeling in the formation of your wounded self, which you can then heal and transform into a creative ally.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Understand the false beliefs of your wounded self
  • Become aware of the source of your false beliefs and controlling, addictive behaviors
  • Discover the ways you protect against pain that actually create more pain
  • Recognize how we develop into takers and caretakers — two sides of the wounded self
  • See how shame has affected you and your life choices

Module 3: Connecting With Your Higher Guidance & Discovering Your True, Core Self (February 14)


In this session, you’ll discover the beauty of who you really are, and begin to develop your loving adult self, who can take loving action on your own and others’ behalf. Through visualization, you'll connect with your personal source of spiritual guidance, which will become the role model for loving yourself and seeing who you really are.

In this module, you’ll discover:

  • How to define your true, core self
  • Practices for connecting with your loving source of spiritual guidance
  • The difference between operating from your wounded self and from your loving adult self
  • Access to your role model for loving action

Module 4: Becoming Fully Connected to Yourself in This Moment
Step 1 of Inner Bonding (February 21)


Are you able to reconnect with your authentic Self at any given moment, especially when you feel anxious or afraid? Many of us never learned this valuable practice. The first step of Inner Bonding is being willing to become mindful of your physical and emotional feelings. Dr. Margaret will guide you to discover how to be fully present in this moment, and find the place within you that wants to evolve from your feelings rather than avoid them.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Discover what it means to be “willing,” and the false beliefs that stand in the way of your willingness to feel your feelings and learn from them
  • Identify the wounded feelings that you create and how to open to them
  • Understand the core, painful feelings of life that come from others and situations
  • Receive a unique mindfulness practice — to move from your head into your body — and reconnect with your feelings
  • Explore false beliefs about pain and discern the difference between pain and suffering

Module 5: Intent & the Loving Adult
Step 2 of Inner Bonding (February 28)


In this session, we'll go deeply into the intent to learn, rather than the intent to control. We’ll explore various means of opening to learning and what to do if anger, blame, and resentment are in the way of opening your heart to learning and becoming a loving adult.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Enter a deep process of inquiry about the intent to learn about love
  • Learn how to raise your frequency to connect with your spiritual guidance
  • Discover and apply the power of compassion
  • Connect with guidance to become a loving adult
  • Go through the “Inner Bonding Anger Process”

Module 6: Your Feelings, False Beliefs & Accessing the Truth
Steps 3 & 4 of Inner Bonding (March 7)


In this session, you’ll discover a process for dialoguing with your core self, your wounded self, and your spiritual guidance. You'll engage in a deep internal dialogue process with your feelings and belief system — and uncover false beliefs that may be causing your pain.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Uncover layers of exploration that enable you to access your unconscious beliefs
  • Ask key questions of your core self and your wounded self
  • Dialogue with your spiritual guidance to heal your false beliefs and resulting pain

Module 7: The Power of Loving Action & Evaluating the Action
Steps 5 & 6 of Inner Bonding (March 14)


In this session, you’ll explore various kinds of loving actions — actions for yourself alone, and actions in relationships with others. Taking loving action can tap into deep fears, and these will be explored in precise depth. Then, you will learn how to evaluate whether or not the action you took was loving to you.

In this module, you’ll discover:

  • The exact nature of truly loving actions, which help redefine your worth
  • Loving actions in relationships and in conflict with others
  • The 2 healthy choices in conflict
  • The results of loving action — relief from guilt, anger, shame, anxiety, and depression — and instead, feeling whole, expansive, and spacious

“... so many divorces could be prevented with this knowledge”

When Inner Bonding and other treatment modalities talk about “loving yourself,” I used to think, well yeah, I must love myself because I am constantly treating myself to massages and such.

— Michelle Deeb, Burbank, California

What I found during the course was an increase in my ability to be truly kind to myself. With this, many of my addictive behaviors have decreased noticeably without me making any effort to control them.
— Lesley, Brattleboro, Vermont

“This course has benefited me immensely”

This course has benefited me immensely in my life. It is helping me to be more compassionate with myself and with others. There are so many useful snippets that I am incorporating into my life. Margaret’s course showed me the consequences in my life and gave me the tools to try another way.
— Jacqueline, Johannesburg, South Africa

Margaret’s course has made me realize on a deep level how important it is to take responsibility for loving myself and to feel and allow all my feelings. Making the conscious choice to open my heart to learn, invite spirit in, and love myself in every moment makes me feel more empowered, connected, and alive. This course will radically transform your heart, life, and happiness.
— Fredrik, Sweden

I found the course very helpful and timely. The questions and answers and role-playing sessions were so applicable to my own life and situation. Dr. Margaret Paul is an incredible person and healer.

“I’ve never seen a course so well put together ever...”
I had never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion, and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon within which to participate. I’ve never seen a course so well put together ever — not in all the years of taking college classes — and I had my doubts about doing an online course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
