Diana Owens - Fulfilling my vision of transformation

Diana_Owens_PeopleUnlimited_testimonialSince connecting with People Unlimited, I have learned how to be intimate with myself, my partner, and others. I have faced judgments, criticism and low self esteem about myself and recognized all of this as irrelevant and small, and no longer let it block me from fulfilling the vision I have of myself to be a peacemaker, transforming the world through spreading love to others. I am 68 years on this planet and have spent my whole life seeking and finding growth. My career as a clinical psychotherapist, success coach and tantra facilitator has been a huge benefit to me. Everything I learned about healing others, I have been able to give to myself. Still, I have not been satisfied...I sought more. I always judged my dissatisfaction with myself and my life as a neurosis.

Through the experience and influence of Jim Strole, Bernadeane and People Unlimited, I am recognizing that my seeking is the drive of my flesh to find my greatness and to live forever. I am falling in love with my life as never before.

I have had a vision of transformation through love since I was in college. Now, through the support that my people have for me and the belief they have in my greatness, I am rising in energy and creativity and manifesting a more lucrative and fulfilling counseling practice. This includes not only counseling and psychotherapy, but my passion for yoga and dance and success coaching.

I have always been interested in health. But now, I have increased my knowledge and practice of healthy habits of living. I not only feel better physically and emotionally, I have more energy, a brighter outlook on life, and am happier.

My relationship with my partner is much happier. We are each taking full responsibility for the happiness we are creating in our relationship. We are no longer blaming each other. We are communicating more clearly and openly and we are less dependent on each other. We are focused on building each other in every way. Our forever life gives us the perspective of wanting the best for each other as well as for ourselves.

I have more energy, enthusiasm, and love of living than ever before. I have a vision of transformation for myself and the world that I am passionate about and can see happening. This vision includes physically immortalizing the world. My partner and I have a community of people that we love and that love and support us in being the greatest we can be and the happiest. I feel grateful and am looking forward to our forever life together, transforming the world through being all that we can be.

Cheryl Piatelli - Opening up to life

I am so NOT shut down any more! And the feeling is exhilarating. I allow the feelings of joy and worth to flow in my body now. I care more for people in a way that is less self-serving. And I have a deep desire to have as many people as possible experience a new way of being. I love being part of a movement that can truly make a difference. Before People Unlimited, I had stopped dreaming. I had plenty of friends and I had a career I loved. But there was an emptiness in me that said "Is this all there is?"

So in 2009 I decided to change my life. I sold 3/4 of my possessions, including my baby grand piano and took a train from Boston to Phoenix. I went to People Unlimited meetings and started to see a different way for myself.

I never liked groups even though I belonged to many. It seemed a necessary evil because I wanted to be with people, but most groups just magnified people's issues. But with People Unlimited I experienced what being cared for without conditions really felt like. It is freeing to the body. And there is an energy that gets created when people want each other to live. The feeling of being unstoppable starts to drown out the old negative messages that tell you you can’t have the life that you want.

Most of us grew up learning we have limitations and they stop us from creating what our hearts truly want. And the process of "shutting down" only gets deeper the longer we are here. Well I have reversed that process.

I have tried things I never thought I'd try: Like going beyond the pettiness with my family to heal those relationships. Like participating in a fitness contest for women over 60. Like expressing my physical immortality to my friends and accepting they might think I'm crazy.

Feeling so loved and appreciated is at the core of my transformation. I know I was loved and am loved by many people, but it seemed like there was something wrong in feeling my own specialness and uniqueness; something wrong in thinking that my presence here on this planet is important and needed. Maybe that was my Catholic upbringing. Now I know that only from that place of deserving can we be truly present for others.
