"All humans seek the illusive touch of another's Soul, which opens us to the sense of belonging to something bigger than the self. Dr. Kortsch has given us the true "tao" of relationship in this brilliant exploration of emotional tapestry. We will be grateful for this illumination of spiritual partnership for generations to come." Chris Griscom, Spiritual Leader, Author

"Eloquent and comprehensive, showing how your primary love relationship may be a sacred vessel that transports you and your partner to a place of mutual healing and expansion." Robert Schwartz, Author: Your Soul's Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born

"The Tao of Spiritual Partnership is a unique blend of wit and wisdom; Dr. Kortsch encourages us to take responsibility for our relationships, while recognizing and seizing the opportunities for our own personal spiritual growth." William Buhlman, Author of Adventures Beyond the Body

Thieves of Your Peace of Mind

You know that when you are worried, the last thing you have is peace of mind. Likewise, when you are angry, you have no peace of mind. Or when you are sad, peace of mind is missing as well. Add to that any negative emotion you can think of, and you will realize that absolutely all of them steal your peace of mind.

And how do negative emotions occur?

Events happen to us, we 'react' to those events by the thoughts we have about them - often unconsciously, because buttons are being pushed - sometimes blindly, simply because that is how we always react to that kind of an event and have never given thought to the possibility that we could react another way - and thus we find ourselves in the midst of those dreaded negative emotions and most likely are blaming them on someone or something.

And yet there is another way. A way that allows you to choose your reactions to events and people; a way that allows you to find that which every person hopes for, which is peace of mind.


You begin by remaining aware as long as you can all day and every day, as opposed to lapsing into mindlessness. This requires attention and practice. You also begin by choosing to take on responsibility for how you feel at all times, as opposed to allowing outer events and circumstances dictate how you are going to feel. Imagine the freedom! You also choose to begin to learn how to soothe yourself in healthy ways when life threatens to be just a bit too much, and above all, you can choose to begin to learn how to love yourself.

You will find material about this topic in all my books (see below) as well as in many of the freely available articles on my website (in English and Spanish) and on my blogs.


Also visit my book website: www.gabriellakortsch.com where you may download excerpts or read quotations from any of my books.

Note: If you are wondering why this blog is now only appearing on alternate days (excluding Sat/Sun), it is because I also post on my other blog on the others days. That other blog is Rewiring the Soul so named for my first book. Click here to visit the blog and/or to sign up for the feed.
