SelfQuest Testimonials

“I am loving it!… wanted to let you know how comprehensive and thorough and inspiring and enlightening I have found it to be. This is a HUGE tool, and for it to be so easily navigate-able makes it so user friendly… a tool that can directly trigger healing around addictions, depression, PTSD, relationships and anxiety (among other challenges) that keep us from the harmony of who we truly are.”
–Alanis Morissette, singer, songwriter

“I really need to sit down and write something about the progress I have made since SelfQuest. I am drug free – no more antidepressants in the past 3 years, I have lost over 100 pounds and worked The Plan – so I am on the road to healthy eating for the rest of my life – I went to college, graduated, now have a great job, might even start running again after having a life altering injury to my leg. I have learned to love taking care of myself and have also learned to appreciate life more than ever. I thank you for what you gave me when you sent me your program. I have beat mental illness, obesity, a life long struggle fighting the remnants of a life rife with domestic violence – become self sufficient and have learned to love myself. Thank you Margaret.”
–Kathleen Wood Howe, Kettering, Ohio

” I wanted to thank you for your tremendous help with SelfQuest. Through the program I am exploring even further the roots of my co-dependence, and the more that I attend to the needs of my inner child, the deeper my connection with my children becomes. As a matter of fact, it helps to see each child as my inner child at their particular age, and they are now teaching me SO MUCH about myself! My 14 year-old son now comes to talk to me about things I would NEVER tell my father, because he wasn’t emotionally present for me. What a gift I am able to give to my children and beyond! Thank you for helping to re-direct me towards a path of wholeness and healing.”
–Patrick Mureithi, Springfield, MO, Josiah Films

–A.P., San Francisco, CA

“I would like to whole-heartedly thank you for offering the SelfQuest program. It has given me the opportunity to really understand and love myself more than I imagined was possible.  I look forward to my daily interactions with SelfQuest and the 6 steps of the Inner Bonding process. I have gained increased clarity on my false beliefs and connection with my inner guidance. SelfQuest has provided real answers and approaches for living my life and a better understanding of the beauty of my spiritual being.”
–Cheri Broughton, Minneapolis, MN

“After attending two (2) five day Inner Bonding intensives with Dr. Margaret Paul, SelfQuest was the perfect tool to continue with my Inner Bonding journey. SelfQuest’s deep dive into the principles and essentials of the 6 step Inner Bonding process has been instrumental in helping me resolve many long-standing issues in my relationships. SelfQuest has allowed me to discover my false beliefs and to align more closely with my spiritual guidance. I am grateful daily for the ability to improve and enhance my Inner Bonding journey using SelfQuest.”
–Jim Broughton, Minneapolis, MN

“SelfQuest is an amazing process that is helping me go deeper than any other work I have ever done. I love the step by step instructions that help guide me where I use to become lost in doing the process on my own. I love SelfQuest!”
–Tamara Stover, mother and student

“I have the privilege of age, quite a breadth of intellectual/theological/psychological study, of scholarship, and this work of yours, just…blows me away….You should be so very proud of SelfQuest. It is an invaluable gift to humanity! Every time I go in, I am engaged, learn, and emerge with a new breadth of insight.”
–Rev. Pat Van Auken, Pastoral Psychologist

“It has helped me tremendously…My bad dreams and nightmares have stopped, and that has been a huge relief for me. I have also found my self trusting people more.”
–Lisa Lane

“SelfQest is an incredibly comprehensive resource that really does sum it all up I think and helped me to nail down where I was avoiding my self.” –Carolyn Morton

“I am finding Self-Quest very helpful, even though I’m just at the beginning. I am surprised to find that, in doing my personal history and behavior profile, a fair amount of residual stuff is being stirred up – stuff that I thought I had dealt with years ago, but maybe only at a certain level.

“You ask VERY GOOD questions that dig down into hidden or unresolved muck, or as Star Trek used to say, “To boldly go where no man has gone before!”
–Mr. R.B. Rayner

“It’s wonderful. The guided meditations are particularly helpful. Thank you so very much.”
–Vanessa Brackett

“SelfQuest has been life-changing! Taking it slowly…sometimes painfully…but has been incredibly healing. Such a gift…thank you.”
— Maria Cornwell

“I am waking up each morning and listening to the visualizations on selfQuest and practicing Inner Bonding with the online learning journal. During the day I am amazed at the heightened clarity, creativity, being in the flow and synchronistic happenings!! This program is extraordinary!

“My son is also Inner Bonding® journaling through SelfQuest daily and loving it!! And tonight I guided my other son through the Inner Bonding® process with the guide on SelfQuest and it was an absolute privilege for me to share this process with him and for him to share what opened up for him.”
–Deborah Lange, Consultant, Australia

“I must tell you how much I love SelfQuest! It feels like I am having a session with you in my living room. It’s really wonderful and sooooooo very healing to be able to sit quietly and reflect while SelfQuest leads the way. As I plug in information about my parents, I realize how I have acted out in some of the same ways that they did. It’s all beginning to make sense and it’s a relief to begin to understand myself. The shame that I have carried for so long is now being replaced with compassion. And that is the gift!”
–Penny Boyle, Longmeadow, MA

“SelfQuest is even more interesting and affirming than I thought it could ever be….When I first opened it and began to read it, I was so pleased that it was so simple to use and the pathways were so easy to follow that I didn’t have to deal with the frustration of figuring anything out. I could simply concentrate on the task at hand! I could almost feel the empathy, compassion and concern through the descriptions, questions and choices offered throughout the menus that was put into the entire program; this put me more at ease as well. I believe that the most wonderful part of filling out the initial profile was that there were opportunities to add personal statements if you didn’t find something that matched your own personal history. This incredible nature of the program made me feel as if it were “customized” just for me.

“I have been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. I was 300 pounds ten months ago and have lost 136 pounds. I lived a lifetime of abusive relationships. SelfQuest addressed all of those issues and anyone experiencing this wonderful program would benefit from it. Currently, I have a young adult aged son who is problematic for me and a teenage daughter who is challenging as well – I feel as though I am learning to be a good example for them in dealing with my problems, addressing my issues from the past, and relaying what I am learning through SelfQuest to them. Our marriage relationship will benefit from me using the program alone – if he will use it too, it would be incredibly beneficial.

“SelfQuest would be so beneficial for the teachers in our public school systems. I have unfortunately experienced bullying from teachers with my two teenagers educational process and it has been life changing for both of them. They have not been able to function in the public school systems from a lack of respect and teachers who are personally dysfunctional as well as professionally inept. I have been trying to figure out what kind of program that I would recommend to a school board for teachers to improve the quality of teaching and this is it! If teachers were required to work the program it would carry on to be of the utmost benefit for their students.

“I would recommend SelfQuest to everyone. There isn’t a single soul out there in the world today that wouldn’t benefit from the healing qualities provided within the program! I am so grateful for it! I can feel the strength within me growing and my mind is spinning with new possibilities for loving myself every minute of my life instead of overlooking my needs and putting myself last as I have throughout my entire life.”
–Kathleen Howe, Kettering, Ohio, Entrepreneur/student

” I am the proud owner of the Self Quest program for Inner Bonding. Self Quest contains all the information you need to understand and be successful at Inner Bonding. It is very comprehensive and covers everything I’ve read in the Inner Bonding books: “Do I Have to Give Up Me to Be Loved by God?, Healing Your Aloneness, and the Healing Your Aloneness Workbook”. It lays out the 6 Step Inner Bonding process in such as way as to make it “user friendly”. There are plenty of examples to assist the user that explain how to practice the 6 Steps, discover your false beliefs, and contact your inner guidance – much more. There are also voice-guided visualizations to prime you for the work. Self Quest is easy to navigate and locate the different segments and is laid out in an intuitive format. This program is wonderful – the work of pure genius. Thank you for this opportunity to grow and heal.”
–Elizabeth Karner, Laguna Woods, CA

“The SelfQuest program is the most powerful tool for self-discovery and healing I’ve ever found — and I’ve sought a lot. Hang on for the ride of your life, as SQ will throw open your heart and encourage everything to spill out. But it doesn’t leave you hanging with the mess; SelfQuest gives you the means — the elusive “How” — to nurture and love yourself, and to feel safe through the growth process.

I’ve undertaken my SQ studies at my darkest hour. At a time when I’ve been facing what seem like unbearable losses and fears, with what feels like no hope for survival, SQ has turned on the endless tap of my own personal and spiritual power and faith, which is not just supporting me through it all, but allowing me to experience deep and joyful learning instead of anguish. Most notably, SQ has become my surprise ally in working through my own biggest personal challenge – of lifelong addiction….self-destructive behaviors literally fall away, almost immediately and without complaint. I strongly recommend SelfQuest to anyone struggling with addiction, in any form. It would not be an overstatement to say that SQ has saved my life — and certainly impacted the lives of everyone I interact with. In my estimation, there is no one who cannot benefit, and deeply, from participating in the SelfQuest program. In fact, it should be mandatory for us all.”
–Coby Gordon, Knoxville, TN

“I don’t know how to describe Selfquest! it’s the most useful tool I’ve ever had in my life! It’s like wonderland!”
–Raed Almutairi, Spain

“I would like to thank you for creating SelfQuest program, its changing the experience of my life. I am finding Inner Bonding very calming and loving. I do my IB self-discoveries daily through SelfQuest or 6 steps inner conversations. I have been looking for deeper level of self-love for some 15 years and Inner Bonding process is giving me growing clarity on how to live lovingly with myself. I am finally given sufficient answers and tools for self navigating my life and understanding the beauty of my inner world and daily joyful moments.”
-Mirka, Czech Republic

I have SelfQuest for a year now and the more I use the program the more I want to use it. It is very easy to use because it is divided into sections so you just do one section at a time and one easily flows into the next much like chapters in a book. The incredible thing is that the program is interactive so whatever you write in your background for example or in other areas, it will show up later to help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself for the current issue you are exploring. And, there is much to say about the psychological, emotional and spiritual help it has given me. I went back to a section called Learning & Practicing the Six Steps because there is so so much help in understanding how our wounded self works and what our beautiful Inner Child needs from us. This part is truly amazing because as you will find, there isn’t a psychological or emotional dynamic that hasn’t been included!! There isn’t anything we have ever thought of or felt as a means to controlling ourselves or someone else that isn’t there, it’s been given a voice and it’s amazing! And then afterwards, we move into the space of learning what our Inner Child needs from us and even there, there isn’t a single emotion or need left out. It goes so in-depth in every step that no matter what issue I am working through, I always feel better, lighter and like I’ve truly made a connection with Guidance…(even though my ws sometimes questions it), but the proof is really when I’ve finished and how relieved I feel. I could keep writing because it really is a magical and phenomenal program that Margaret & Erika put together. There are recordings of meditations and many many other tools to help us open our hearts and souls and even relieve difficult emotions.
–Daniela Mannucci, Genova, Italy

“Doing the SelfQuest has enormous impact, I am very impressed how complete and thorough it is! The structure, the intensity of questions and the “interactive” features are just wonderful!!! Today I have been able to work on a real current issue and I must say, the Energy Psychology was just what I needed to help me work through the issue!!! You have put a wonderful program into place there, I have been mentioning to people and recommended it.

“You are absolutely right when you say that there is nothing else you need once you work through this program…Like many others, I have completed so many workshops, training, even a study of “applied psychology”, in order to become a Loving Adult to my Inner Child. That is what it is all about.”
–Anette Schäfer, Netherlands

“The software seemed simple at first.  The value in it lies in the systematic way questions are presented.  Even as a counselor, I would have been hard pressed to think of all these questions in such a comprehensive, well thought out format.” — Dean Alan Sims, MAR, LCDC-III

“The SelfQuest software is like having a therapist to ask me questions.  I have time to consider my responses without the time constraints or cost of a therapy session.” –Syed H.

“WOW, this brings Inner Bonding to life.  I really like the video instructions and the diagrams.  It makes more sense.” — Troy T.

“I have now completed my second SelfQuest process out of dire need. And, yes. I can really attest to its efficacy. Genius, Dr. Margaret.” –P.S.

“The SelfQuest program is loaded with all kinds of goodies and I am beginning to see how working through it can bring deep healing to oneself.” –S.R.

“SelfQuest us fantastic. I love SelfQuest because no matter how long I’ve been doing Inner Bonding, I sometimes still default and go into my head to work out my issues. I try to have conversations with my Inner Child, Loving Adult, Wounded Self, and Guidance all in my head and it just doesn’t work. I get distracted and sidetracked. There are too many perspectives jumping in at once and it becomes a tangled mess. The fact that SelfQuest walks me through each step and gives me helpful visualizations and meditations to guide me into the right HEART space and be open is extremely helpful. It helps keep me focused on my goal of healing whatever issue I’m having. I also love that it’s so organized and user-friendly. The fact that I can go back and look at previous situations and see how I’ve handled them and what my Guidance had to say and how my Inner Child was feeling is a great tool. It allows me to see patterns in my behavior. It’s been an indispensable program and resource to deepen my Inner Bonding process. Every time I use SelfQuest I feel better. I feel like I’m really connecting to my Inner Child as a Loving Adult and that makes my Inner Child SO HAPPY! There hasn’t been a book, course, or program that Inner Bonding has offered that hasn’t helped me greatly. The SelfQuest is just a fantastic program to help me stay on track and deeply connect with myself. I would (and have) recommended it to so many people!” –Emmi Morley

“The Inner Bonding Self Quest program is great & insightful program for anyone who want to have a happy & fulfilling relationship.

“What works really well for me was some of the case examples provided by Dr Margaret in some of the topic illustrations. I could relate to some of it and gained insights from the program. The glossary is very useful too.

“The Self Quest program helped me in my healing journey through my breakup, understanding my behaviour pattern and what cause triggers in my relationship.

“Thank you so much Dr Margaret Paul for creating this amazing program. May more people benefit from this Inner Bonding program. ” –Ratna

“I really appreciate going through the process of learning and experiencing Inner Bonding through the SelfQuest programme. It is thorough and informative. The discovery of the framework and the rigour in going through each stage in detail has helped me to understand what Inner Bonding is without a ‘live teacher’. While it is hard work, I have learnt more about myself and how my past and habits impact me. There were moments when I felt major shifts happening within me when I was going through the SelfQuest programme, and the revelations have impacted me on a deeper level. I have learnt and am still learning to hold myself responsible for my feelings and to give space for myself to feel them through. This has greatly impacted the internal processes of myself and how I respond to events and situations that are happening in my life.

“I feel privileged by the gifts SelfQuest has offered. The programme has not only been insightful, it has also been therapeutic and has helped me to find compassion in holding space for the different parts of myself. Beyond this, it has also helped me to better appreciate what might be happening for other people and how they might also be impacted by their past and wounds. The SelfQuest programme and Inner Bonding has helped me to build a better and loving relationship with myself and furthermore, with others.” –Wee Leong
