    Let’s do GREAT things together,

    Thank you Rebekah, Celeste, Toiann, and Brenda! I really appreciate your kind words of support and I’m very happy you enjoyed the episode.

    Thank you for sharing your experiences, this really helps people like myself starting out. I do agree with Erika in that 5-Path training gives you the confidence and knowledge to take off. I had been attempting to start out for years! It wasn’t until I studied 5-Path through the DVDs that I acquired a clear idea of how to systematically do things which gave me the confidence to take things to the next level. Thank you Cal, thank you Erika.

  9. Erika Flint, CH, CPHI August 21, 2014 at 11:36 AM

    Thank you Andres for your kind words an dI’m so happy to hear that you are having success in your practice with 5-PATH. Thanks for watching and your input.

    Erika, great podcast. Wonderful to see your initial video. You were just like an old hand at it.

    I loved hearing your history into the profession, very interesting. Thank you for sharing your insights. Isn’t it wonderful that we attract the clients who we are meant to help. So fulfilling…

    Cal, I was also thinking of Dr Sarno when Erika spoke about her case study. He loves to use the term repressed “rage” as manifesting as pain in the body. Of course, TSLOF tells us that rage is just another name for anger.

    Oh and Erika, by the way, you’re right you are Unique!

    Thanks for everything you do.


    Ps. I also love the DVD course too… I’m currently on my 3rd viewing 😉

  11. Cal Banyan, MA, BCH, CI, DNGH July 20, 2015 at 12:27 PM

    Thanks again Susan. Some people really are a pain in the backside! lol


  12. Erika Flint, BCH, CPHI July 20, 2015 at 2:10 PM

    Thank you Susan! I appreciate your kind words, and yes we do attract the right clients for us to help and it is extremely rewarding. Thanks for your input.
