In this booklet by Mariah, she discusses how it is critically important to have a relationship with yourself that includes a healthy respect for your needs and the ability and commitment to provide for them.
Moving out into the world and asking for what you want can be a scary business. It takes strength and assertiveness to ask your boss for a raise; it takes tact and directness to ask your siblings for help with an aging parent. Putting yourself out there and asking for what you want can be fraught with risk. On the other hand, the capacity to represent yourself well in the world, and move out on your own behalf by asking for what you want, ensures that your needs are communicated, known and respected.
In this booklet, Mariah shares her feelings about having a life-threatening illness and how she deals with it on a daily basis.
She reveals how the power of love guides her and how she both surrenders to her illness and creates endless possibilities for healing at the same time. Her responses come from a question and answer session with some of her students at Esalen Institute in California.
