Embracing Resistance: The Third Force

Instead of hiding and distracting ourselves from what really scares us, we can learn to accept fear and use resistance as an agent for profound change in our lives. The techniques to strengthen our observer enable us to watch debilitating self talk from a new perspective. As we increase the ability to stay with our negativity, a magical third force appears. This presentation will teach you what it means to embrace your demons and bring about powerful self transformation.

It’s Time To Wake Up

Most of us feel we are more or less in control and then suffer from so much negativity and anxiety. The consequences of unseen influences keep us from truly fulfilling our purpose.

We need only look at the level of dissatisfaction and reaction in our lives to realize there is no driver on the bus. This presentation will delineate the cause and help develop ways to drive your destiny instead of being a victim of your fate.

The Dynamic Present Moment: The Catalyst for Self Acceptance

The miracle of having to surrender to a higher call has allowed me to inspire others to do the same. Teaching expanded awareness has brought so many people to a place deep in their hearts. In a dynamic present moment, we repair the past and prepare the future forever.  This presentation teaches hands on methods for being in a dynamic present moment so you can leave with the power and magic of knowing how to live from the heart each and every day.

Molly’s 30 years experience performing on stages of the world allows her to bring light to what really scares us and how to move through fear using the third force which enables us all to step fully into the symphony of life we are meant to create.
