A Success Story

“It is 2016. I spend more than half of 2015 with Dr. Foojan Zeine. We traveled through my life, a journey through my thoughts, feelings, desires, anger, frustrations, needs, wants, love, hate, allowance, acceptance and finally forgiveness. She broke down my life in 25 specific areas. We visited each area and spent enough time to analyze the feelings, believes and behaviors. Later, we went back to each area and rebuilt a new path based on the new view of life that we created together.
What a trip. It is hard to put the whole experience is one paragraph. After all it was 50 years of experiences that we looked at, questioned, broke down and re-created. Through her program, we looked at every part of my life, dig deep into my memory, analyzed the feelings that was attached to those memories, release them and replace them with reality of what happened.
When I started with Dr Zeine, I had an old anger in me. The energy of that anger was consuming every area of my life. She had me face the anger. It was hard, but I stick with it as she guide me through it. Now at the end of journey, I feel relieved, happy, light, and full of love with people around me. I have a much better relationship with my children, my man and my parents.
Dr Zeine, thought me to look at each event as what it really is, and not giving in to the emotions that I built around it. I learned, that I am giving power to the past and building memories that are painful. She helped me to release the power of those memories and see them as another life experience. Or see them with a different perspective. She provided me a new sun glass to see my life. The lenses of this glass is green and make everything in life prettier, sharper, and fresh.
Thank you Dr Zeine for giving me the joy of life back.“
