The first step to making change and to Choose Happy. All improvements in life begin with accepting that things aren’t working the way we would like them to. As Dr. Phil says ‘how’s it working for you?’
This is not about accepting anxiety or depression as a way of life. It’s about accepting your feelings so that you can look at them and make changes.
By accepting that life is one way we are not locking ourselves into that way for ever, we are taking the first step to change. The Acceptance CD takes you on a guided journey to allow yourself to ‘let go’ of the way things are and create an opening in your life to let in the new.
The way things are is the way things are; when I accept that I set myself free. Stuart Wilde
Progressive Relaxation Volume 1 ‘Acceptance’ was used by the Anxiety Disorders Association of Ontario (ADAO) as part of their 14 Week Program for people living with anxiety conditions. In 2007 Jacqueline created a separate CD specifically for the ADAO, only available from the ADAO at this time.
What Pat has to say about Jacqueline Fairbrass and Acceptance:
How wonderful to hear your voice again. It just seems to make everything calm and managable. Guess that is why I like your Acceptance CD. It brings back many happy days with you.
I have started a vision board for a cruise to NORWAY !!!! Have always wanted to go there, and I can dream!!
What Lisa has to say about using Jacqueline Fairbrass’ Acceptance CD:
I have tried a few different methods of self-hypnosis/meditation type stuff and found that I either fell asleep (not what I wanted!) or just didn’t feel deeply relaxed. And it has always been frustrating because I cannot ‘see’ in my mind’s eye what they are suggesting I see… as I told you last evening, I cannot ‘see’ anything!
I listened to your CD last night and made it through most of it before dozing off. But even by the time my left foot was relaxed, I was already feeling very peaceful and relaxed! So I knew that if nothing else, this was going to be useful to me to just wind me down.
And then again this morning I listened… at the beginning I could see the pretty purple blobs pulsing in and out, and then after a little while I actually saw little snippets of pictures!! It was so neat – some of them corresponded to what I was trying to visualize according to your instructions on the CD, and others seemed to be just random images. I am very excited!!! I finally saw some images!! Yay!
