I guess the general purpose of the class was to enable us to look at how we can respond to situations in a healthy way and feel controlled negatively by things that arise, because after this situation has blown over there will always be something else.
I resonated strongly with the first of the five steps because I recognise that sitting around blaming someone else is a good way to waste your energy ie nothing fruitful comes of the energy that you dispense.
Be proactive, don't react - don't be a victim of the situation see how you can make something happen within or from the situation.
Today I have lots of questions!
You say something like "tua ashe ahow". What does this mean? Also you say something that begins "nuk pu."
A diva sister brought forth a scenario regarding a male friend. She said once she would have taken him up on his offer, but now she will not. You replied that the two are not mutually exclusive and that she could have both. Can you explain exactly what you meant? I wasn't sure if you meant sex and gas money, greater regard from her friend and gas money or something else.
There were a few others things but I've forgotten them now...
You cover a lot of information in each recording - which is good! I usually take a break halfway through, because I'm not used to the dense content (brain having to take in a lot of new things simultaneously) but its nice to be mentally challenged. I realised I was hearing things that I didn't understand but not querying them because they weren't part of 'the program' ie what I came to the clinic for. I am slowly emerging from my tunnel-vision!
My question regarding the sister was not for salacious reasons: I was wondering whether you were saying that we generally inhibit ourselves and the way we may see potential opportunity in a situation because we are looking for polar opposites. I was wondering whether there was a hidden gem in how you addressed her, are there a whole range of options available that we don't consider because we are not capable of seeing them? I felt you were alluding to a more expansive way of thinking.

I apologize Diva Sonja for leaving that one unanswered. Truth iz I don't entirely re*member. I tend to mean "all of the above" when addressing such situations.
I feel it's so empowering to get away from either/or thinking and embrace the infinite ANDs we could choose from instead. Even if you choose not to engage at all, you do so from a position of abundance not lack.
Btw - listening slowly, re-listening, it's all Good. You are a different wombn from who began this clinic, and as you transform you will hear differently.
A wombn in harmony with her spirit iz like a river flowing. She goes where she will without pretense and arrives at her destination prepared to be herself and only herself.
