A Course in Miracles tells us that our soul's only desire
is to turn its grandest concept about itself
into its grandest experience.
It says that until concept becomes experience,
there is only speculation. (p.22)
This is the magic of the Lighten Up process.
Most of us only have a concept of loving ourselves.
Lighten Up provides the
heart opening, soul fullfilling experience.

Carol's Story

Most of us have heard or read about the importance of loving ourselves. However, no one has ever been able to give us a simple, easy process to get us to that state of self-love, no one that is, until now. Carol Hansen had hated her body all her life. At age 48 she was unhappy, unhealthy and living a high stress life. On New Year's Eve 1992 she attended a 24-hour meditation where she prayed for a process that would bring body, mind and spirit into alignment--a process that would enable her to love herself just the way she was.

It was during that meditation that an easy, nurturing 5 minute-a-day process was given to her. She began doing the process everyday without any expectations. Within 30 days of starting the process her blood pressure and cholesterol levels had dropped dramatically. Within 10 months she had regained her health, had "lightened up" physically, was energized, needed less sleep and looked and felt 20 years younger. She had become the person she had always dreamed of being!

Carol now teaches this process in a workshop called "Open Your Heart & Lighten Up!" Since September 1993 over 5000 people have attended her class and have experienced its magic in their lives--many have called it the "missing piece of the puzzle." Every week Carol receives dozens of letters, phone calls and emails from people telling of miracles in their lives as a result of this magical process. Carol stresses that this is not a "weight loss" technique. It is a process that brings body, mind and spirit into alignment - a process that enables you to "lighten up your life" with love by loving yourself unconditionally, perhaps for the first time in your life. And once you experience that love, the healing begins.

Carol believes if everyone loved themselves unconditionally, they could then, without effort, truly begin to love others unconditionally. When enough people are filled with unconditional love for themselves and others, we will experience true world peace. Her message is powerful and she is on a mission to share this process with the world! Carol's seminar is now available as an audio tape for $15 and as a CD for $18. They can be purchased from Open Heart Press.
