    Hi folks,

    I have waited quite some time before I made a testimonial regarding Lifeflow. I wanted to be absolutely sure I wasn't experiencing a placebo effect using the product.



    I seriously thought maybe it was a placebo effect at first because I had such an astonishingly fast result with the product. The thing is it's still with me after nearly a couple of months now.

    The first thing I noticed was a wonderful letting go feeling in the pit of my stomach just like I used to get when I meditated 2-3 hours a day when I was younger. I then started feeling forgiveness on many different levels including myself as well as others. I also benefited from much better sleep. Being bipolar this is a great thing as I used to get about 3 hours sleep out of 24 hours. I now sleep all night most nights! :) I believe by using this program perhaps I can achieve the God consciousness I used to experience back in the day, I do know I've missed it greatly and can't wait until I get back to that point. Right now though it is just such a relief to feel peaceful again I cannot express my thanks enough.

    I did get a fixation on a few things but I did as instructed and just observed them and they eventually passed and are no longer a problem anymore.

    All in all I have to say I am very satisfied and thankful for having found my way here. I remember when I learned Raja yoga my teacher told me when the student was ready the master would appear. This couldn't have come at a more critical time in my life and I thank you for that. I have to think that I didn't find this program blindly but it was all in due time.

    Thank you so much for the tools you've made available to me. May God Bless you abundantly.

    So now perhaps you could change your nickname: no more SO tired?... just kidding, but this is a hint, and a question: what nickname would you choose today?...

    Hey energy ;-)

    I know how you feel. I have been using it for the last 2 wks and Gosh...I am speechless (and that is saying something)

    I too had sleeping problems, for MANY years, stress, depression and all that! I too have started feeling forgiveness on many different levels. it took me weeks (if not months) to reach this level of freedoms. I chanted many hours per days and (eventually) felt absoluty great. But as you know, when depression kicks in, motivating oneself if that hard! With Lifeflow it is a pleasure. I am so looking forward to the rest of the downloads.

    Keep happy. Thank you for sharing your experience

    Untill next time

    Sogno

    Sogno,

    Thanks for your message. What you said really resonated with me. I too have struggled with depression and have been lacking the motivation to meditate even with Lifeflow. Your post helped me stop being so hard on myself and reminded me of the joys of using lifeflow

    Flavia, I think I would be changing my nick to Finally Learning to Live, perhaps something shorter but along those lines. :)


    Sogno, getting some sleep is amazing after many years of not getting proper rest. I can relax deeply at times now even with chronic PTSD/bipolar mix. That's a real shocker! I remember at one point I went 2 months and almost a week getting about 3 hours sleep every other day or every three days due to bipolar disorder...I felt like I would die but now I believe I have the tools to not have to worry about that misery again ;) The peace and relaxation are a blessing without a doubt. I'm very thankful I got off my cheap butt and took a chance. Thank you for sharing as well, much peace and happiness to you. ;)

    Thank you again folks and thank you Michael!

    Meidam,

    Pleased to help! Don't be hard on yourself, accept yourself as you are. This is the first step to healing your life. Listen to lifeflow in bed if you have to, just as you get ready to end your day. That does not require much efforts and is that relaxing. We need to keep encouraging eachother. You are not alone!

    Sogno :)

    Hi again folks,

    Hi Sogno,

    I believe you're correct in that taking the first step is the hardest step. I couldn't be happier about taking a chance on this program tbh. After so many promises from other programs only to be let down I was apprehensive to say the least about trying yet another program. I will say I am exceedingly pleased above and beyond what I expected especially after so many let downs with other programs.

    I'm glad you benefit as well from the LifeFlow program. It has proven to be a powerful tool hasn't it?


    I've found sometimes when things look so dark that there appears to be no end to personal misery, God sees our efforts and smiles on those efforts so broadly and deeply that we know without doubt at all that we have truly been blessed. Anything worth having is worth working for. I think if we can just get a toe-hold on that kind of thinking/awareness (like in your link) and learn how to focus on it using Lifeflow or in conjunction with prayer and Lifeflow at the same time that we can only continue to grow in a positive direction. I know I'm all for that! :)


    Another thing I have learned is that even when I think I am relaxed, sometimes I am hanging onto stress somewhere physically in my body from years and years of exposure to trauma. Once traumatized chronically, everyday is as stressful as the day the actual trauma happened...supposedly this is true according to what the experts have told me. Kinda like the movie Groundhog's Day but on an emotional and mental level. The good news is that I have became aware of this stress in areas of my body now and I am learning how to release it. By releasing it I am forced to deal with it, well, not forced but I feel up to the challenge now to get this mess out of the way once and for all so I can finally live again. Finally. I thought I was sleeping well before, now it's on a whole new level. My body stays very, very tired but it's trying to recuperate from 40 years of hell whenever I relax. :)

    Praise God I have prayed for this to happen for a long, long, long, time.

    That was an interesting read you linked to, thanks for sharing. :)

    Peace and God Bless

    Bi polar

    Hi Tired,

    I am new to Lifeflow, but am so far very impressed with the testimonials and the feedback on the forum. But what is significant is that I sent the URL and sample to my brother who is also bi polar, as I was sure this will help him. He lives in the Caribbean, in the most idyllic of places, but is in deepest depression at the moment, having been in a manic stage for almost all of last year.

    I hope I can persuade him to take Lifeflow on board, and will report back if he does and it is of help.

    Heather

    Hi,

    According to what I have read, learned from other bipolar people and from health care specialists is that stress is one of the main contributors to inducing "episodes", depressive, hypo or manic. We may not be able to understand why we're stressed, for that matter we may not even know that we are stressed but we need to find ways to relieve it. Some great ways to relieve stress are through deep relaxation/meditation, exercise, a regularly balanced diet on a regular schedule and with some effort towards a positive attitude to move away from negativity and towards thankfulness plus personally for me my faith in God. Sunlight, by the way is also very good for the disorder so long as you don't get too much which can also cause mania...strange but true...plus proper hydration.

    I've found that by meditating, that I have "released" or become aware of some things that have been repressed....one was a real shocker. If it had of just been forced out of me it could have been bad. I honestly had no recollection at all of it until a week or two ago. It's just one of the many things that have came to the surface since I've been using Lifeflow program.

    The awesome thing is that with the program, as I'm sure you've read, relaxation/insight/health starts to happen. Hypo-mania and mania can be caused by a lack of sleep thanks to racing thoughts, with stress added on top it just becomes miserable and leads to more negativity in a vicious cycle. Thankfully I have been able to relax and get to sleep a lot better than I used to be able to. It's really neat actually, I can even think a lot more clearly than I have been able to in many years.

    I'm very thankful for the things I have learned here and for being able to use this in conjunction with my walk with God. I pray this will help your brother, he can use it as he tries to drift off to sleep, it's possible it might actually aid him into falling asleep which is a God send. Nothing like wanting to sleep but having a mind that is unwilling to shut-up long enough to allow it to happen.

    Please understand that mania is hell. If he has been manic for an entire year I feel deeply saddened for him, I went for 10 months once and never want to go there again. A week is bad enough...

    It is great that he has your support though as that can be a key "ingredient" to recovery. The depression afterward mania can be indescribably horrible to put it mildly, the good thing about the depression though is it is a sign of hopefully a rise to a more stable footing. In other words things can only go up when you are so far down (and it will go up). I would like to see him use this program because I believe by training the mind, body and spirit we can develop a lot more control over our lives and perhaps to a point where we can actually have a lot higher quality of life regardless of our medical conditions. It may not completely eliminate things but if it could even just cut it in half, that would be a drastic improvement? I do believe it can get better than that though with commitment. Our mind can be a battlefield or a paradise, sometimes we have to fight for paradise but once a person has had a taste of it...at least personally, I will fight at the drop of the first sign of symptoms to maintain this new glimpse of life.

    My apologies for the delay in my reply I have been really busy. Heather, you are an excellent sibling, your brother is very fortunate. :)


    God Bless you both! :)
