Why is it so hard to control our thinking?
You would think after watching movies like “The Secret,” “What The Bleep,” and listening to new thought teachers saying over and over again: “In order to change our lives we must change our thinking,” that we’d have it down to a science by now.
So, what’s the problem?
Don’t worry, you’re not alone. After 28 years of recovery and living my purpose as a metaphysical teacher, I have found myself asking that same question – why are there times when I still struggle with my thinking - what’s the problem, and what can I do about it?
Before I could tap into the solution, I first had to admit that I was addicted to my thinking and behavior patterns that felt like old friends for most of my life – even when they weren’t very nice friends.
Addiction is when you have become enslaved or are in bondage to a way of thinking and being, even when you really, really, really don’t want to think and behave in a certain way. Most people only associate the word addiction when it comes to drugs, alcohol, sex, pornography, food, gambling or other physical addictions.
I'd like to welcome you to Soul Recovery, a curriculum of twelve practices I used to heal myself of a particularly serious addiction, and that ultimately birthed the writing of the book of the same name. What I've learned, in applying and sharing this material in workshops, training and private sessions over the past 10 years, is that the very same approach I used to heal myself of smoking cocaine—apply to issues far beyond just alcohol or substance dependence.
You see, the reason that we obsess about a drug, a relationship, a job, or anything else, is that we have lost sight of the keys to our happiness. Through our life experience, we have "re-engineered" ourselves to believe that we are unworthy and incapable of being truly happy and truly fulfilled.
And that just isn't true!
We are entitled to feel as whole as we really are, and I've discovered that there is actually something we can do about that.

"I had the distinct pleasure of having Ester Nicholson as my keynote speaker for the annual luncheon/fundraiser for the United Way of Williamson County. We had about 400 in attendance and Ester was not only captivating with her energy and talent but she was also very inspirational in delivering her message. Ester was extremely easy to work with in preparing for the event and made it a priority to make sure that her message was one that would resonate with the audience to whom she was speaking. Her beautiful voice and heartfelt message through her song was a wonderful gift to those in attendance and a rare addition that most event goers donʼt expect."
