Still got questions?
Here are answers to some of the most common questions I get asked. If yours hasn’t been answered yet, please get in touch. xx Clare
“I don’t have enough time to do this!”
Not having enough time is the #1 excuse (sorry, truly legitimate reason!) I hear from people about why they can’t change their lives.
Firstly, we tackle this, head-on, in the first module.
Secondly, do you really think that the ‘future you’ on your 80th birthday will look back and say “Hell yeah! I’m so glad you didn’t bother changing your life because the ironing was so much more important!”???
Or do you think that ‘future you’ might wish you had taken action today that could help you to feel happier and more fulfilled, for every day of the rest of your life?
“What if it doesn’t work for me?”
I know that this stuff works – and I know it will work for you, if you simply go and use it! But I also know how it feels to start a programme and feel unsure or confused – and that’s ok.
It’s my aim over the four weeks to help you to spot how you have been sabotaging your success and happiness in the past – so you can set yourself free from those old blocks, fears and excuses forever.
It’s the difference that makes the difference.
And, if your heart genuinely tells you this isn’t a good fit for you, once we’ve started, then that’s why I offer my “Love It!” guarantee.
How does the Summer School create lasting change?
We don’t mess around with the sticky plaster stuff (Band Aids, I think, in the USA?). We dive right in and deal with the underlying causes. And it doesn’t have to hurt and it doesn’t have to be scary.
But when you deal with what’s been unconsciously running the show, change doesn’t just become easier, it becomes inevitable and natural!
“What if I’m away for some of the programme?”
Don’t worry! It’s ok!
You get access to all of the modules for a full six months after the end of the programme and all live calls are recorded.
So it’s easy for you to catch up and there’s no pressure to run at the weekly pace – you can choose to take things more gently, if that works better for you.
And you get to resit the programme as my guest, each time it runs!
What kind of support is included?
This group mentoring programme includes peer support from the private online community – and I will also be in there, pretty much every day for the whole of the programme, to answer your questions and to be your virtual cheer-leader for your break throughs.
The live Q&A sessions (Platinum) are the perfect opportunity to get answers to your burning questions – and to learn through others’ journeys.
So it’s subtly different from one-to-one mentoring, but you still have full support and, personally, I feel you gain much more from sharing the journey and learning from each other than from working through this kind of stuff with just lil’ ol’ me!
How do I know it’s worth the investment?
I know that the tools, techniques and secrets I’ll be sharing with you are dynamite. Apply them, make the shifts, let go of the old ‘stuff’ you’ve been carrying and you’ll take your life to the next level.
(Don’t worry – I’ll be sharing the full ‘how to’ with you, to make all of that easy).
If you imagine being able to crank up the dial on your ‘Inner Happiness Thermostat’, each and every day for the rest of your life, how much would that be worth to you?
Or, perhaps looking at it the other way, how much would it be worth to you to avoid reaching your 80th birthday, looking back and regretting that you didn’t do it.
Only you can decide if you want to dive in and exerience all that the “I Am Abundant!” Summer School has to offer. And if you do, then I promise to give you all the support and encouragement and ‘how to’ that I can, to help you achieve the shifts you have been dreaming of!
“But I’m scared of changing! Won’t my life fall apart?”
I know that change can feel scary – believe me – I’ve been there.
That’s one of the reasons why it is so important to me that I only share the depth of techniques we’ll be using in the Summer School in a mentoring environment – and it’s why you’ll never find them just hanging around in a book. This stuff really works – and I want to make it as easy as possible for you – and that’s why it’s really important that we get to connect, rather than me leaving you on your own. We have the private online community, where you can share your experiences (both great and otherwise!) and get moral support, plus the weekly Q&As, where you can get answers to your questions.
You are not alone. We are all there, walking this path by your side. And when that happens, change doesn’t feel anywhere near as scary, does it?
Isn’t this stuff just a load of ‘woo woo’?
My inner engineer chuckles over this one. She has lost count of the number of times she has thrown this question back at me. In fact, my original degree was a Masters in Mechanical Engineering and German and the first decade of my career was in senior engineering positions and then as Head of Market Research for an international brand – so I know about practical, strategic, insightful common sense solutions.
On the other hand, my inner ‘soul self’ also knows that there is more to life than purely observable science. And if I didn’t share the more subtle stuff with you, I’d be doing you a disservice. So rest assured, I’ll be bringing you everything that you need – but in a way that’s easy for you to take on board and enjoy, without having to pop off to your 29th Chakra for a month of japa meditation. 🙂
“Do I have to take on a new religion or belief system?”
In fact, the primary focus of my work is to help people let go of the old beliefs that were holding them back – wherever these came from.
With everything I share with you, all I ask is that you try it on for size, with an open mind, and if it fits, great. Take it and use it to change your life. If it doesn’t, and you can’t tweak it to fit, that’s cool too.
And the vital Truth I mentioned earlier is the #1 reason why all of this will work for you, no matter what your cultural or social background or life experience so far.
“What will it feel like, as I work through the Summer School?”
The 28 days (and beyond!) will feel different for everyone, but there are some common themes.
Sometimes the module will be easy for you, because it’s just refining what you’re already doing.
Other times it might be more of a challenge, as you let go of an old behaviour or release an old block and take on new habits. Comfort zones will get stretched. You will be re-training your mind – both the conscious ‘Monkey Mind’ and also your ‘unconscious mind’ – the bit that’s really running the show.
Take all of this at your own speed. Dive in as deeply as you can – but know that the materials will still be there for you, if you want to repeat a module in the future to get even more from it.
By the end of the Summer School, if you have worked through the modules, you will feel happier, calmer, more open-hearted, less stressed, more grounded and centred and life will flow more easily.
And students tell me they catch themselves smiling for no particular reason 🙂
How do the Q&A sessions work?
These are held weekly (for Platinum members) and I’ll publish all of the dates and times well in advance, so you can get them in your diary.
They run at two different times – Monday evenings and Saturday late afternoons – alternating each call. This is to try to allow as many people as possible to join in live (given the wide range of time zones we’re all on!). The calls are all recorded and you’ll be able to download them from the members’ area, to listen to again. So don’t worry if you miss one!
You can also submit a question in advance, if you can’t make the call, and I will do my best to answer it.
All calls can be done via the phone (and there are a range of call options) or live via the internet (free) – so hopefully there’s a choice that will suit your schedule and call plan.
I want to make it as easy as possible for you to really enjoy these sessions.
“Do I have to join in with the private online community?”
No, of course you don’t! It’s entirely up to you!
However, I’ll be spending quite a lot of time hanging out there, so it’s a great way to get answers to your questions. Also sharing the journey is much more fun than just doing it on your own and you’ll find the community is full of lovely people, on a similar journey to you. So I do really recommend joining in.
It is a private closed group on Facebook (Google can’t see inside it), so your privacy is safe.
It really is worth the effort.
I’m not sure if I want to do this? How can I decide?”
Simple! Try out the 80th birthday test and let me know which way you decide to go. Here’s a short video to walk you through the process.
