If you scored between 100- 150, you are living a joyful life,
and are supporting and empowering your family, friends and
the world. You most likely seek out support, guidance and help,
for more self-improvement, and look for better ways to love and
support yourself.


If you scored between 50 and 100, you probably do some
loving and supportive things, but also have areas that aren't
working, and trip you up. In fact, since you have the self-
awareness, the negative habits and negative emotions will
feel even more intense because of the contrast between the
loving actions and thoughts, and the actions and thoughts
of self-denial and negative judgement.


If you scored below 50, it isn't an indicator something is
wrong with you, know you are in good company.  Most of us
have been trained up in ways totally opposite of what is required
for self-love and acceptance.It is possible to do things in new ways
and turn things around.

unconditional love.

Quit worrying, be happy!

Coming to Sharon for sessions
and workshops
have made
my life lighter, healthier,
and more peaceful.

I’ve released a constant
cough,improved my hearing,
and released a variety of
aches and pains.

I love myself more, and
I let it be OK to make
, want things,
and be human.
I used
to think I wasn’t suppose
to love myself or want things,
that that was being
selfish or vain. Now
I allow myself to feel
beautiful and good about
myself without having
to be perfect.  I make
being happy a priority.

I let myself be happy even
when there are still
challenges in my life
or loved ones. I understand
more and more that
I don’t help others by
worrying or stressing
about them, and understand
I don’t need to put
off my happiness until
others have it all
together or figured out.

I use to feel stressed
during the holidays
family came. Now things are
very different,
instead of
feeling anxious, I’m
able to relax,
others to help out instead
of doing it
all alone,
and I find I am really
getting what I wanted,
enjoying being with
my family
and spending
time with them.

More often I see the
possibilities of the future
instead of worrying
, and
that has been such a
gift to feel more relaxed
and expectant.

I have more peace about
the eternalness of life
Dealing with the death of
loved ones has still
brought temporary pain,
but is softer now, because
I also have felt the
beauty, connection, and
eternal relationship with
my loved ones,
Sharon would say,
“ … in pure positive
love and light.”
So I'm able to let go
of dwelling in sadness
or regrets, enjoy my
life, and be present
for my loved ones here
on planet earth.

I highly recommend you
sign-up for her Immersion
Program, it really can
change your life,
I’m so glad I did.

Tips for loving yourself

* Pretend you're your best friend, and give yourself encouragement and supportive guidance.


*Treat yourself like you might a small child and allow yourself a learning curve as you figure things out and find your way. Don't beat yourself up for being human, give yourself wiggle room to make mistakes, experiment and find your way.


*Make lists of things you've accomplished in the past and felt good about. Remind yourself that you can achieve, learn and grow, by reviewing the list off and on to build up good feelings of feeling capable.


*Instead of focusing on criticizing your body and feelings of ugliness, think of reasons you feel beautiful instead. Maybe you felt beautiful when you wrote a song, or supported a friend. Feel those feelings instead.


*Have handy in your mind, people you know love you unconditionally. Maybe a grandchild, child, or friend.Think of them when others offer up criticism.


*See yourself through the Universe's eyes (God/Higher Power/Source/
The Divine) as the beautiful, beloved, precious soul you are.

Love yourself

"... I am sharing my...personal story to show you how something changes you but shouldn't.
We all have had a moment when someone tells us something that ... hurts us to our core. There may be 1000 people who say something positive to counter that negative comment. Instead of listening to the positive, we hold on and believe that ONE negative comment.

This is my story:

When I was a young woman, I came out as a lesbian. I spoke to my mother on the phone. She told me I was lower than a piece of s... on the ground. Everyone around me praised me for coming out ...

But my entire adult life was based and formed around that one centering thought: I was worthless.
It ... began to change when I went to see a hypnotherapist...she told me over and over again how wonderful I am.

She encouraged my writing, the changes I needed to make, and in those few months gave me a new belief in myself.
It has been 5 years since I saw her and began to change... I have ... learned that I am a contributing, amazing woman to this world...

I am telling you this because most of you ... have had that defining moment... I am challenging you this very second to begin the change... It is time to let go of the negative and replace it with love. Love for yourself! You are amazing! You are full of grace! You are love!"

Shannon Thornbrugh

Let go of others judgments and love yourself...

"… last year my son ... identified you as making the biggest difference (improvement) in his social life ... It was a true gift to him and to me…. " B. Johnson

Let go, lose weight, and feel inspired...

"I am down 5 pounds now in about a week. And I have been knocking off projects around the house that I have been putting off for months. Years even. Can’t figure it out... I seem to have derived more benefit than I might have expected from just one session."
