Make Your Living Doing Your Purpose! Join The Call Tomorrow!

Hi Everyone!
Well, tomorrow's the day! Have you
registered yet? Unless you're using your
blessing in every possible business
situation, it will be great if you do!
Your blessing can create transformation
for others and provide income for you
in a variety of ways.

Although The True Purpose Institute has helped
thousands of people connect to a trusted source
and learn about their blessing, we've noticed
that most of them use it rather tentatively.
They tend to do it in one-on-one settings,
if at all, and don't sell it boldly and directly.
Some of this is from permission issues;
some is lack of understanding of all
the other options.

If you'd like to expand your impact, manifest
your purpose more powerfully and make more
money from it, join us! We'll send you some
tips to help you organize your blessing and
get some permission in advance of the call.

WHAT: Working call about turning your
blessing into a business
DATE: Tuesday, March 29, 2011
TIME: 3-4:30pm PDT, 5-6:30pm Colombia,
6-7:30pm EDT
COST: None!

If you already registered, you don't need to
do anything. I'm very excited to attend this
call which my colleagues Tim Kelley,
Audrey Seymour and Beth Scanzani will be
leading. The True Purpose Institute has never
done a call like this before, and we don't
know when we'll do one again! We're hoping
that helping people to make more money from
their blessing will create more powerful
change agents and raise the consciousness of
our entire community.

See you on the call tomorrow!

Manifest Your True Life Purpose More Fully!

Dear Purposeful Friend,

Like you, I’ve been working to put my purpose into practice. One of the things
we’ve found over time is that people can spend a lot of time struggling
before they are manifesting their purpose. One of the keys for me was
taking the Purposeful Coach Course that is coming up this spring.
Other keys have been: utilizing my connection with my Trusted Source
to guide me as to next best steps, and working on maximizing my
understanding and use of my blessing and mission to make my purpose
come alive. At the True Purpose Institute, we’ve been trying to cut down
on the amount of time and energy it takes to get people into a
flow with their purpose.

One of the key milestones in manifestation of your purpose is when
you are being paid to do it for a living. Having your purpose be
your “day job” is the best possible platform for manifesting your
mission! The more people who are being paid to manifest their purpose,
the better chance we all have to create a better world together.

Please join me and other practitioners from the True Purpose™
Institute on Tuesday, March 29th, for an important call about this.
We will be working with our blessing-based purpose statements
to see how they can be integrated into:

- One-on-one coaching and counseling
- A corporate job
- Workshops and teleseminars
- Organizational consulting
- Societal change processes

Here are the call details:

WHAT: Working call about turning your blessing into a business
DATE: Tuesday, March 29, 2011
TIME: 3-4:30pm PDT, 5-6:30pm Colombia,
6-7:30pm EDT
COST: None!

My hope is that this call will help you see more ways in which
you can be paid well to live and manifest your purpose.
If you’re already being paid to bless people, this call
will give you more options beyond what you’re currently doing.

After you register, you’ll receive a new model we’ve recently
developed about different types of change agents.
We’ll use it during the call to help us orient towards
different ways of implementing our blessings in a business context.
During and after the call we’ll offer specific support programs
that may help you manifest your purpose on a bigger scale and
for more money.

If you’re feeling resistant to or nervous about attending this
call, all the more reason to come! That would indicate that
it’s purposeful and that you have permission stuff around it.
We’ll give you support before the call to help you deal with them.

I hope you can join us!

Of course, even if you can't make the call, I recommend you sign up so that
you can listen to the recordings on your own time.

Whether you have found your purpose and want to turn it into a
business or want to deepen it for your own growth and development,
this call will provide valuable nuggets for your growth and development!

Call me if you have any quesitons at 786 859 4050 or email me at .

All the best,


P.S. The call will be led by Tim Kelley and other teaching
staff from the True Purpose Institute. Here’s the registration
address again:

P.P.S. These calls cost nothing and I receive no
compensation if you choose to attend. If
you decide to take any programs from the True Purpose
Institute in the future, I may receive a referral fee.

Life's Ups and Downs - Striving for Equanimity in the Face of Daily Living

Last week was filled with excitement and frustration. My long worked for and hoped for International Coaching Federation Professional Coaching Certification (PCC) came through, as did my equally long worked for and hoped for True Purpose Coaching Certification (CTPC). I received notification of both on Thursday, one a few moments before midnight, making it a banner day!!!

That same day, both toilets in the house broke, and the next day, a neighbor’s faucet leaked right through my ceilings and walls to destroy my hallway carpet!

Exhilaration and frustration, both in the course of 48 hours, reminded me of the small things in life that have the power to throw us off balance – if we let them do so!

Earning my certifications meant a lot to me. I worked hard for them, I spent hours keeping the records necessary, writing up the reports needed and most importantly doing the studying and then the coaching that made me qualify for them. In the coaching field, earning an ICF (International Coaching Federation) credential is the gold standard. Regardless of one’s school (and I studied at iPEC, one of the best, in my humble opinion), one is not truly certified until recognized by the ICF. There are three levels of ICF certification, and after only two years of coaching, I earned the second level due to the many hours of coaching I have done during that time.

In the world of Life Purpose coaching, the True Purpose certification is substantive and quite challenging to achieve. Indeed, certified TP coaches are still few in number, though there are many coaches striving to complete their certification. I worked hard to achieve the credential and sat on pins and needles until it came through.

As we had one water-related challenge after another in our home last week, I felt overwhelmed, deflated, and frustrated to be stuck in the house waiting for workmen, washing and drying loads of wet towels and reusing them to dry off more of the carpet, and then dealing with insurance companies and contractors. I felt like these incidents were taking away from my excitement about the ‘big news’ of my certifications and bummed out about having to stay home when I had so many things I wanted to do outside of the home.

Yet, once I stood back from the incidents, both ‘good’ and ‘bad’, I saw in them a microcosm of life. One moment, there is joy, the next, frustration, sadness, and at times (though not this time, thank God) tragedy. A day can start off lousy and end up great. A year can start of wonderfully and end as a bust (and visa versa).

Seen in context, this roller coaster of events could be likened to the weather: sometimes sunny, sometimes, cloudy, sometimes dark and stormy. But none of this is the life itself. Regardless of whether we achieve, enjoy ease, or face difficulties, the silence within and around us is the backdrop to it all. As our essential core, it is the constant, and when we can see ourselves as bigger than anything that happens to us, we can live through whatever happens with so much more sanity and serenity.

Do I always experience the silence as the backdrop? Do I always ‘get it’ that it’s not what happens, but how I respond, that really matters? Conceptually, yes. Experientially, not always immediately. But more and more, I get it more quickly than I used to. And sometimes I have long spurts of peace amid life’s storms.

How about you? Are you enjoying equanimity regardless of the vagaries of life? What’s the story you tell yourself about your life and the experiences you face? Are they trials? Are they adventures?

Send me your views on how to stay sane and serene regardless of life’s ups and downs. Would love to hear from you!

Life Just Before and Just After Enlightenment - What's Required

As a young person, I thought getting enlightened would mean the end of my worries and troubles. That I would be in bliss all of the time and nothing would bother, worry, or trouble me. Yet, I met, read about and heard about enlightened beings who still suffered and had imperfections – how could that be?

I sought out religion, thinking that relationship with God through a specific dogma would solve my problems. Over time, I learned that dogma is not a cure, but that a structure can be helpful to growth or stunting, depending on whether we use it to hide from our problems or to uncover and deal with them; that attaching to the outer dogma without working on inner change can be just another way to hide from our own areas in need of healing and growth.

Then, I was introduced to the 12 steps and thought that once I accepted my powerlessness over people, places and things and worked the steps, nirvana would be reached. Indeed, the steps did and do continue to provide the key to overcoming addictions and codependency, but addiction switching can be rampant and so, repeated working of the steps is required to go back again and again to powerlessness in order to emerge more empowered.

Over time, in my 12 step work, I began to understand what it says in the AA text about “Spiritual Awakening” most usually being gradual. I got it that the path is often fraught with continued challenges. It dawned on me that the need to keep practicing spiritual principles of living in order to grow in spiritual awakening means that the journey can at times be more of a “trudge” than a joy. And I continue to ‘get’ the value of treading and retreading this path in order to grow stronger spiritually.

I’d always wanted to find my purpose, and thought that when I did, life would be perfect. And, indeed, finding and living my purpose has brought me a sense of peace in areas of my life that were previously fraught with discontent. Yet, in travelling the purpose path, I’ve found that staying on the path involves looking deeper within to bring all of my ego parts into harmony with my purposeful life if I want to live even most purposefully. Yet another take on what I’d been learning all along.

So, recently, when I found the book The End of Your World: Uncensored Straight Talk on the Nature of Enlightenment by Adyashanti at my local bookstore, I picked it up to see if I might find some insights on what this journey is about, how it occurs, what to expect and where I am along the path. In this book, I found the opportunity to go deeper in my own understanding of what it means to awaken and to become more motivated to pursue the inner work regardless of what is going on around me. By writing about everything I’ve learned along the paths I’ve travelled and describing experiences I’ve had and hope to have in the future, the author helped me integrate a lifetime of learning and living in just 216 pages.

So many of us on the growth path find that no matter how far we seem to get, there seems just so much further to go. Others ‘bliss out’ and ignore the growth still to be attained, and in doing so may miss the potential for even greater spiritual growth and fulfillment. And here is a book that speaks to the journey in a clear, down to earth way that really pulls together all of the disparate pieces of life in our time for people determined to awaken as well as those who have and might not even know it...

If these ideas touch you, or if the concept intrigues you, I recommend the book. And if you do read it, I’d love to hear your thoughts, your journey, your insights.

All the best,

Life Purpose as the Next Step on The Recovery Path!

Do you ever wonder why you specifically are here on this planet at this time in history?

Over time, sometimes recovery is just not enough. Of course, conquering the inner demons that at one time conquered us, brings with it a sense of rightness about life, a sense of connection to something bigger than our small selves. But, asking if that's all there is, is only natural.

After all, recovering from the addiction itself and overcoming the wounds of the past is only meant to be the beginning of a strong purposeful life in recovery. But, what exactly that means, is very unique to each individual. After many years of working a recovery program, I reached a point of often asking myself: Why am I here? What specifically am I meant to contribute?

At a certain point, I came in contact with an opportunity to get specific, detailed answers to these questions and I grabbed it! The results have added a depth to my life and work that I had previously only hoped was possible!

In my case, I found out that I am here to help people in recovery get their life purpose questions answered. To help people whose lives were or are being affected by their own or someone else's addiction get tools to recover themselves, coupled with clear inner knowing about their own specific destiny on this planet.

This inner understanding is what brings me to the work I do as author, developer, and teacher of the Four Foundations of Family Recovery, as teacher of Life Purpose in Recovery workshops, as life coach to people struggling to find their way through their own or someone else's addictive nightmare, or looking to find their life purpose.

Waking up to this realization of my own life purpose, opened my ears and eyes to the details of how to go about reaching out to those I am meant to help and what to do with them once I find them.

It led me to see that Life Purpose is truly the "next step" on the recovery path, as the knowing of one's own specific life purpose is about fulfilling one's destiny fully as a recovering human being.

Since beginning my journey as a teacher and coach of this process of helping people find their life purpose in recovery, I have watched recovering people around me build the businesses of their dreams, change careers, add depth to their family lives and make inner changes that have taken their recovery to levels previously only imagined!

I'd love to have the opportunity to take you on this journey of finding your specific Life Purpose in Recovery!

If you are a 12 stepper, not only with you get detailed information about why you are here and what you are meant to contribute. Just as importantly, going through this process will deepen your experience of steps 3, 6, 7, and 11 as you get to know your Higher Power on a deeper level and come into harmony with the ego parts that may have, up until now, kept you back from getting your life to the next level of fulfillment, meaning and purpose.

If this sounds like a mystery worth unraveling, keep reading this blog, and if you'd like, let's talk! I'm available to you by phone at 786 859 4050 or email at .

It's my mission to help you find your life purpose as the next step on your recovery path. Join me to explore what that really means!

By the way, if you are related to an addict or alcoholic and want to thrive regardless of what is happening in their life, but just can't seem to do so, join my next Teleseminar series of The Four Foundations of Family Recovery which will begin on Thursday, October 21, 2010 from 5-6:30 PM ET. Whether already on the recovery path or trying to figure out if there's any help for you in seeking recovery, you will benefit greatly from participation - and potentially, so will your addict! Find out what others are saying about the course and register yourself at and go to the link '4 foundations of recovery'. And feel free to call or email me if you have any questions.

See you there!

All the best,

Coach Bev
