“Dear Erin: First, WOW! I am not really sure where to begin as I am still soaking in all we have learned. The first week was amazing, and I know I will re-read through those affirmations many many times in the future. I have found myself already repeating them in moments of stress or anxiety… I am a worrier. Expert-level, constant worrier. This a trait that I have inherited from my loving and constantly concerned father. The affirmations remind me to be more mindful during the day and be patient with myself when I allow anxious and worried thoughts fill my mind. I have also really enjoyed the recordings! I like to read your emails in the morning, then in the afternoon listen to them. There is something about hearing the same message twice, through different modes, that I believe allows it to sink in more. This has been such an amazing journey so far, and I am excited to continue on. Thank you for all the love, dedication, and energy you have put into this, Erin! Your light really shines through the material.”

“Living Joyfully 101 has completely changed my life for the better. It is difficult for me to put into words all the amazing and positive effects it has had on my personal and professional life. This incredible course is the catalyst to reaching my fullest potential…”
“What I absolutely LOVE about this course is that it gives you tangible, extremely useful tools that you can use immediately and/or revisit later on. Each day gently guides you to new information and growth… I experienced so many “aha” moments, having my mind open up to material I had not encountered before. Most of all, it was a safe, secure and gentle process, accepting me as exactly who I am, and where I was in my own journey… Thank you Erin for this permanent and priceless gift!”
–Natalie, Yoga Instructor, Utah
“Hi Erin, I just wanted to thank you for the amazing and wonderful program. To say your program is a game changer would be an understatement. You opened my eyes (and my heart) in ways that I could never have imagined before starting the program… I was surprised at how uplifting and empowering the affirmations were. The best way to describe it is that it felt like cobwebs were lifted from my soul. Prior to starting your program I would say that I lived in a constant state of self-doubt, self-judgment, and a failure to be at peace with myself, even in times of joy and success. Like most people, I have highs and lows in life but I tended to ignore or minimize my successes and inflate my negative attributes. I was very hard on myself despite a life filled with meaningful accomplishments in my personal life, career, and spiritual growth.
To give just one example of something I gained: After starting the program, I finally felt hopeful about my career options (an area of struggle for me since becoming a lawyer). I was feeling trapped. Trapped by a bad economy, or by my practice area. This was leading to a sense of despair and hopelessness in my career. The tools provided through the affirmations made me open my thinking, to see thoughts as options and to go with those thoughts that opened doors. I began working with a career strategist and together we are working on a plan to help me transition out of law into a new field where I have a passion for my work. This never would have started without the program. I didn’t even see the opportunity out there. Again, I just want to thank you for providing such a wonderful opportunity for true growth and transformation.”

“Dear Erin, Doing this work and developing an attitude toward joy has allowed me to more freely explore my own goals and dreams. I don’t feel so bogged down by the expectations and decisions of others. I, too, am living my own mystery and its okay if others don’t understand it. I am wholly worthy of living joyfully!
The personal feedback and phone conversations really helped me to delve deeper into my feelings and responses. You have a unique gift for encouraging your students to consider situations in a whole new light. You helped me turn very negative thoughts, emotions and actions onto their their heads and reexamine them from a positive perspective, from a place of love. I am so thankful for you and for Living Joyfully 101!”
–Michele Schack Yoga Teacher, U.S. Virgin Island
“Erin, I would like to thank you for the 30 day affirmation process. The affirmation that really has suited me and stuck with me the very most is to be in the easiest and most effortless way. All of the affirmations have stuck with me and helped to guide me in the direction of change in regards to unhealthy patterns. The easiest and most effortless way just works for me.
I find myself saying this in business meetings and to people that I talk with in the public. It is just that simple, although I am easily able to make it very difficult. This has helped me SO much. I realized how difficult I was making certain things in my life. No one else is going to change my life but me! Here is my success story, which is just one of many that has taken place since the 30 days of affirmations.
I stopped driving my car to and from work. It caused me so much anxiety, fear, and anger to be on the road with people who do not appear to be present in their bodies. No amount of cussing and flipping the bird is going to put those people into their bodies. So, I had to change what I was doing and that meant to remove myself from what I feel is a toxic experience. Since taking the train I have mellowed out. I meditate every day on my way to work and when in the mood I read a good book. I walk one mile to work from the front runner station and listen to my favorite music. I am so happy in the mornings that you may see me singing and dancing on my walk! The idea of making things easy and effortless is so wonderful and really makes a difference.
I will be going through the affirmations again as I am sure I will learn something new! Thank you again for everything.”
-Kari W, Software Support Manager, Salt Lake City
Hi Erin, Your 30 Days program is truly a gift. Thank you so much for offering it and I’m feeling very grateful to be a part of it. Every day I look forward to a new affirmation, and I read and listen to them, sometimes more than once. The effects of the course will go way beyond the 30 days. I will be referring to and applying these affirmations to my daily life over a period of time long after the 30 days are over. Thank you again for being the amazing person you are and for helping to change lives one step at a time.”
