Why did you seek out a program(s) with The Glow Effect ?
I found the Glow Effect online as I was just browsing through blogs and stumbled upon it and decided to sign up for the weekly newsletter. At that moment in time, I had been going through a really difficult time of being very sick and constantly going to the doctor, missing school and could basically not get out of bed. I was reading everything I could get my hands on about health and life changes. One day, I just decided to email Saren on how much I enjoyed her blog and I had written that I was looking forward to one day working with her and she just replied right back and said why not now? So the following day, we talked on skype and I enrolled into the three-month course.

  • Probable future if you didn’t get help ?
    I think the program helped me really look at myself and helped me rewire a lot of my thinking. I love writing and contemplation and being sick really made me look at myself and this program gave me another perspective which was really beneficial for me. I am not sure what my probably future would have been if I didn’t get help. It was what I needed to do for myself.
  • Impact the program made on your life ?
    The program really helped me to confirm my focus of the things that I have needed to get into order for myself. When I finished the future plan which was really like a 2-3 year plan of things that I wanted to accomplish before entering medical school (I have decided that I wanted to study to become a holistic health doctor) that I wanted to learn more about financial freedom, gain more training and experience with my current job of teaching English, traveling to other countries as well as many other goals I had for myself. Now looking back, I have learned so much about money and teaching in the months since completing the program than I ever would have imagined. What I had written down is being created through my vision little by little.

What were your doubts/objections prior to investment of time and money? How did you overcome doubts –
I had initial fears and apprehensions about money and paying for the program but once I decided to do it, I felt a release of tension in my body. Through doing the program, it was definitely worth all of the money I paid and what I gained from it was definitely so valuable to me.

What’s your dream and how are you living it right now –
I have many dreams, not just one. For starters, since the program, I have traveled more during my breaks. I have gone to Malaysia and next week I will be in Japan. Usually, I use my travel time to visit friends in other countries as I used to work with international students at my university for five years so it is a good excuse for me to see them and I find trips always provide really important lessons for me. I also use my travel time to volunteer and teach as well, which allows me to learn more about a culture and its views of the world from learning through my students. Traveling is very important for me and I need to do it for myself so I have been able to save more money to do the things that I want to do. It’s a nice blessing. Along with traveling, I have been more money conscious and learning a lot about money, learning how to budget smartly and how to save. Although I had some knowledge before, it has become a lot easier for me. I also have been in a better flow with my health and work and have noticed how happier I am and how that affects me and my students. It’s really amazing to see that the more I have invested in myself throughout the day and really loving myself, how that outward reflection is exactly how I feel inside. It’s amazing!

Favorite quote: My favorite quote at the moment, is in Chinese but the translation would be something like this – “As the passing years go by like birds flying in the sky, everything is always new and constantly changing.”
