Magic of "I Am"
David’s Magic of I Am affirmations are a great way for me to get centered and focused each day. I love the range of where they take me and also challenge me. In addition to the affirmations, I also get a video message each week that takes me even deeper into the message and the meaning it has for me. I am so grateful for this program, because it has been a great guide into higher awareness. To top it all off, the emails and the website are so easy to get and connect through. I’m going to tell people about this site—I know they’ll love it!!
David McLeod’s daily affirmations remind me to refocus my attention on values that are precious to me, when my daily routine distracts me into a slew of to do’s of faux importance.
Most of us schedule our days in advance, meeting, chores to do, some pleasant, and to be honest most of them are not fun tasks to do… 🙂
Sometimes when you wake up you need that “push”, something to give a flavor to your fast, and busy day. That is what I experienced when I was reading David’s affirmation emails, I was like “Hmm…, it feels like was written just for me”.
Whether you are spiritual, or do not believe in any of it, we are all humans and all we need that “message” that somehow seems to touch us deep down. It makes our everyday life roll smoother and easier, kind of it simply “makes sense”.
If you feel like some of what I experienced resonates with you, just give it a try, and subscribe to David’s Daily Affirmation program.
Not knowing what to expect going into the GROW workshop, I’m amazed at what I experienced in 2 days. Meeting people from different teams and working with them on different tasks and acitvities, I felt so much closer to the Guidewire culture that attracted me to join this company from the very beginning. This workshop was a great way for me to extract myself from my daily routines and focus on myself. I really appreciate Guidewire putting investment into its employees in this type of personal growth development. This experience will stay with me for a long time and I truly think it can benefit anyone.
My first experience working with David was truly amazing, as he created a safe place for me to explore sides of myself I have never explored and let go of. Through the process, I chose to give it my all and showed up 100% for myself and the others participating with me. David truly has a gift in working with people in getting to the root of it all and being there step by step as I walked through my fears with confidence. I then left feeling lighter, empowered, confident, and loved. 🙂 I highly recommend this experience to anyone, as it shifted my views of life by helping me to deal with my own stuff and to be able to show up for others. 🙂
I tremendously enjoyed going through the GROW Workshop. It created many good memories as well as enhancing my interpersonal skills. The coverage of the Guidewire core values was great. I was also introduced to many immediately applicable ideas and suggestions to engage at a higher level here at Guidewire. I am proud to count myself as a GROW Workshop alumnus.
My partner and I had been working through issues related to living together and the judgments and resentments that naturally come up as two people come closer together. David created a safe container for open, honest, direct communication. David took time to make each of us feel comfortable. Guiding us through each process, David skillfully brought us toward deeper awareness of our authentic selves and helped us find the language to communicate from that level of awareness. Real intimacy comes, I believe, from expressing my authentic self and hearing my partner express her authenticity. David helped us achieve that.
In a remarkably short time, David helped us cut to the chase in helping us express what needed to be said for our relationship to move forward. He created a safe place where we could be brave, loving, and direct with each other. Since our session with David we’ve felt closer than ever.
Recently I found myself in one of the most challenging periods of my life, struggling to make a relationship work and finding it extremely difficult to navigate on my own. Sometimes the challenges we face are so multifaceted it is difficult to get to the essence of who we are in a situation. David is a master at facilitating, and because of his support in a couple’s clearing process, I was able to find my way to some deeper personal truths that I could not see without his assistance. David created a safe and sacred context for the communication that took place between me and my daughter’s mother, and he facilitated a complete openness and acceptance of my truth regardless of what it was. In that safety he allowed me to find my way through the twists and turns of all of my feelings and thoughts and beliefs to my deeper truth. His facilitation also contributed in a big way to help me find my way to greater connection with my daughter. I am very grateful for David’s support.
David brings consummate skill to his coaching, including insight that comes from years of experience and training. He has the level of understanding that is required to really “get” what’s going on for the client and guide him/her to a place of understanding and healing. David gracefully and lovingly facilitates people to find their way out of their own confusion about why they are stuck or struggling, so that they get what they said they wanted to achieve. David’s style melds the challenging elements—such as accountability and integrity with the client’s stated values—with huge compassion for the client’s struggle and current experience of reality. David will unhesitatingly stand in the fire with you so that you can get what you came for.
I was at a point in my life where all that I knew and was doing for my personal growth work was not getting me to the point that I wanted to be—I felt stuck. In being introduced to and in talking with David McLeod, I received a glimmer of hope from the way he stood empowered in his body. I was deeply touched by David’s intuitive facilitative nature. He was connected to me and allowed me to go where I needed to take my growth work. He was able to safely and smoothly guide me through my processes to discover the nuggets of gold that were deep inside me all along. As I know personal growth is a lifetime process, I am grateful to the gifts that David helped me discover from within myself. I am continually amazed at how simple, yet deep, the work is that David does. Through working with David, I have learned to recognize my own shadows, and they no longer run my life. It is through this awareness that I am ever closer to my goal—an empowered authentic individual!
David has helped me increase my self-awareness and self-acceptance. With his help I’ve gained greater access to my own power and feelings, and this has led to a much better relationship with my wife. David models authenticity, strength and vulnerability. He brings important challenges with love, insight, and compassion, and at the same time, he encourages me to find the answers from within myself.
David McLeod has wonderful facilitation skills in which he has mastered a dance with the participants. When David has facilitated my own work, he was always able to join with me in the process, giving me support and coming from a neutral stance to allow my own self-discovery. During my deep process work, David has shown an exceptional gift with respect to timing: he always seems to know how to ask the right questions at just the right time to help me discover my deeper truth. David has also given me the wonderful gift of seeing how my past stories and labels have shaped who I have become today and how I can choose to change the way I view myself going forward. And this really helps me to realize my own magnificence and no longer be at the mercy of the negative images of my past stories. As a result of this deep process work, I have been able to join with my significant other in sharing my deeper truth, my insecurities, my fears and how the labels from the past have impacted me. And through this communication and sharing, my relationship has moved to a deeper level and my significant other is able to see and appreciate all of me (and vice versa). Thank you, David, for helping me to show up in the world as a loving, authentic, powerful woman!
GROW was a fantastic two-day investment! The myriad of skills I learned are helping me both professionally and personally and have helped me connect with colleagues across the company. We were able to discuss sensitive topics in a safe environment and learn important skills that not only help us thrive at Guidewire, but be better people as well. I can’t say enough good things about GROW and hope that every employee will jump on the opportunity to participate!
David is a skilled, heartful, fearless facilitator of self-discovery and healing. I have personally witnessed his passion for personal healing and support of others. Even as he has manifested great skill, he consistently seeks opportunities to deepen his understanding and sharpen his abilities. Keenly aware that the potential for healing work grows with the safety of the healing circle, David brings a patience and uncompromising support for each participant, encouraging the formation of a supportive and reverent healing space. Unhurried and fiercely compassionate, David has led me and hundreds of others through fears and confusion, and into relief, understanding, and delight that we might never have found on our own.
Life Mastery TV
Two really great and caring people—their webinars explore the emotional and stress issues that afflict so many of us nowadays—these guys are David & Tommy.
Their webinars, which anyone can register for at no cost, are insightful and help a host of folks. Not just people with serious emotional problems but others like me. I consider myself as a pretty together person and can state that watching David and Tommy has helped me a lot. We all lose our way, or our perspective on gets skewed, so we need something that nudges us back on the right track.
Watching David and Tommy discuss and elaborate on aspects of life that bother or confuse people has certainly opened my mind.
I urge you to register and watch their next webinar, at the every least you’ll find it entertaining and enlightening, and it may even give you the tools to “fix” something that’s been bothering you!
I appreciate the opportunity to participate with your Life Mastery TV webinars. I find your approach to the discussions to be very helpful and useful with looking more deeply at the root causes of feelings, emotions and life experiences. I really appreciate all the “use it now” info and practical applications you both provide the participants. With only 30 minutes of webinar time, the discussions are truly packed with useful and truthful information and I sense your enthusiasm throughout all discussions. Both of your teaching styles are incredibly effective, and I am certainly looking forward to future webinars with you!
I have either watched live or watched the recordings of all the Life Mastery programs, and I find them to be thought-provoking and fun. These episodes have helped me to open up to other ways of thinking about life experiences and how we react to them. You can feel that David & Tommy are sharing from their own experiences, with understanding of what we put ourselves through and with great empathy.
The SHIFT workshop with David was very professional and powerful. I have learned very useful tools for going deep into the psychological make-up of a being, and bring light over unconscious aspects that are ruling one’s life and behaviors. The knowledge presented was extremely useful, and David showed in a very clear way how to apply it and run a process that brings at the end healing and transformation. I am now much more confident in my skills, and ready to facilitate.
David McLeod is a gifted facilitator. During the SHIFT training he took the skills which I naturally have as a facilitator and helped me to flourish them. David was able to give me insights into the areas in which I can grow and how to incorporate new tools and techniques to assist me in being a stronger and more confident facilitator. I highly recommend this class to anyone who wishes to expand and cultivate their skills as a facilitator.
David is a joy to watch when he facilitates. His focus, awareness, compassion, and insights are inspirational. His willingness to share these gifts and nurture others (as facilitators or as clients) with his love can’t help but make this world a better place for all. You owe it to yourself and the other people in your life to take advantage of what he offers.
