Admittedly, some of this sounded like over-simplified hooey, but when I tuned in and tried her techniques, they really do work. Maybe it really is that simple.
The proof is in the pudding.
I love Sonia's way: gentle, honest, real, light, fun, supportive, encouraging. And I get the impression that she is a person with a lot of integrity, which I like.
She also makes a really good point about how Hollywood has given us some misconceptions about how it would be to connect with divine guidance, with loud bells and whistles and lights and what not. It really isn't like that. It's super subtle. But it's magical.
Good stuff. Highly recommend opening your mind to her insights.
I really like what I was hearing, and felt like I was learning, but she totally lost me when she got some points about raising kids.
There was some example she gave about having your kids pick up their socks because they are laying around the house and bothering you. You are the one with the problem and therefore you are the one who should pick them up. I think this mentality is rampant in parenting these day to the detriment of this generation of children. They NEED us to teach them how to clean up, to take care of themselves, to be productive human beings contributing to society, etc. Let's face it, sometimes you have to do things you don't want to do. I think Byron Katie's way is way too passive. Some really great points she makes, but ultimately if we all did this it would create a new culture with a DIFFERENT set of imbalances and problems. That's my opinion.
