Email 1 – sent on day of workshop
Subject: You did it! Now what?
Wow, what powerful energy you created today!
It may not have felt like you did anything significant at the workshop today, but no doubt for me, you are one special person to have chosen to live life intentionally instead of watching it go by by default.
Again, I want to say Thank you for your contributions and being part of the Speak with Your Future Self workshop.
Whatever you came to the workshop for, and whatever you got out of it (I hope lots!), your very intention of wanting to lead life by conscious intention is the most important spark of all.
Here’s what you did.
– You not only seeded your intention, but started putting it into fertile soil and began watering it.
– You’ve set in motion a very powerful momentum in your journey towards the desired intent you worked with your Future Self.
– You’ve got a powerful roadmap in your hand.
– You’ve laid the foundation for the simplest and most joyful change going forward.
– You’ve got all the keys. YOU are the key.
Like any seedling, it flourishes with consistent watering & care.
As mentioned, I’ll be giving you a series of support emails to help you with the watering process in these important next few days and then once a week for a whole month. Starting with the one you’re reading now.
Let’s start with this one thing that will really help you throughout the period of bringing your intent to life.
I’d encourage you to do this within the next 24 hours. Why? Because after that, the tendency is that, “life” will get in the way. And then the juiciness that you felt during the workshop, will taper off into nothingness.
Which is fine. But then, hey wait a minute.
Remind yourself, WHY on earth did you show up at the workshop? What happens if you DON’T do a thing with the advice of your wise self even if it’s given you all its wisdom and love?
NOTHING. Nada. Zilch.
Life goes back to normal. To the OLD normal. Not giving your self the chance to set up a NEW normal.
You know that. (But maybe could use a gentle reminder 😉
So, one easy way to keep the connection with your wise self going, is to simply look at that ESSENCE word and SYMBOL that you got.
Put it in a place where you can see it everyday.
- Take a photo of that using your smartphone, and set that as the background image of your smartphone.
- Do a quick redraw on a post-it, and paste it on your wardrobe door, or dresser mirror.
- Or slip it in your wallet where you can see it easily (eg the ID slot).
Just letting your eyes rest on it, or land on it as you go about your daily activities, without expectation, will help anchor and e-x-p-a-n-d your insights from today, and help point you in the right direction of your desired intent. (No need to stare and go cross-eyed 🙂 )
If you want to make a pretty and artsy version, go for it! Take all the time, have fun with it.
But for NOW, in the next 24hours – just have a SIMPLE copy of it somewhere easily.
PS: At any time if you prefer to do this in other ways without any support emails from me, just hit reply and you can say something like, “Thanks but no thanks.” I don’t enjoy clogging anyone’s inbox.
PPS: Tomorrow, look out for another simple way to strengthen the connection with the wisdom you connected with.

Subject: One simple way to keep the connection with the wise self going
There are many ways to strengthen your connection with your inner adviser, whether it showed up for you as your Future Self or as a mother advising your daughter years from now.
Here’s 1 simple way.
– Recall the beautiful conversation you had yesterday with your inner wise self.
– As you recall your experience and read these words, you may begin to feel a sense of appreciation, or wonderment, or peace, for all the useful advice that you were given.
– Then say to yourself, “There’s more where this came from.”
PS: Want to know the 2 best times of the day to connect with your future self? Look out for it tomorrow 🙂
Email 3 – sent 2 days after workshop
Subj: The 2 best times to connect with the wise self
Last email, I promised to share when the 2 best times are to connect with your inner adviser, the aspect of self that gave you just the advice you needed during the workshop.
Generally speaking, the 2 best times are:
1) First thing in the morning (before breakfast)
2) Just before going to bed
Why are these generally the 2 best times?
Because, when you’re in a neutral state of mind, like when you’re ready to wind down, or just re-set from a night’s rest – those are the times when you are most receptive and can really let what’s in front of you SINK IN DEEPER into your awareness.
For most people, these states of mind happen first thing in the morning, and last thing before going to bed.
Which is why, it is not the best idea to end your last moment at night with a horror movie (unless it deeply relaxes you… but mmm hasn’t worked for me or anyone I’ve worked with).
You might’ve heard of normally-happy children watching monster movies as the last thing they do before bedtime. Only to find, a few days after, they start crying for no reason as they go about their day.
Choose consciously, what you plant in your mind before you sleep, and first thing upon waking up.
I suggest making a conscious connection with the wisdom that partnered with you during the workshop, for at least 28 days consecutively so it steeps into your being and becomes a pillar of strength for you.
How? Again, there’re many ways to do this, but you can refer to the previous 2 emails.
1. By looking at your Essence word & symbol – which would be easy-peasy if you’d already set it up following the email sent 2 days ago
2. By following the suggestion given yesterday (“There’s more where this came from”)
So perhaps you can choose #1 above for the morning, and #2 at night. (and you might find yourself sprinkling either or both as you go about your day 🙂
PS: If you’ve insights, aha moments or questions you’d like to share, just hit reply. I’m listening.
Email 4 – sent 7 days after workshop
Subj: Do you shy away from your strengths?
The first 3 support emails went out for 3 consecutive days following the workshop, to take advantage of the magnified connection you created with your wise self.
But don’t worry, the connection is always there, just “running” in the background. Just ask for the connection and it could be shown to you when you least expect it 😉
The next 8 support emails starting from this one, will come in every Sunday, and the last one will be on 11 Dec, exactly a month after the workshop, as I promised.
What I would love for you to do over the next 24 – 48 hours, is to simply review the strengths that were in common between your Wise / Future Self and your present self.
“But but but … “ you may be thinking. “This is cheezy. And difficult!”
It’s kinda strange isn’t it, but have you noticed, many kind-hearted people like yourselves, find it hard to acknowledge the good within? It’s far easier to appreciate the good in others, and far easier oftentimes to direct our focus on what’s wrong with us instead. Our “imperfections.”
But here’s the thing.
[this text in blue –>] There are over 7 billion people in the world. And there’s only ONE you. NOBODY else in the world can be exactly like Y.O.U. [/<– this text in blue ]
Said in another way – some time ago, I came across this lovely message attached to a tea bag –
[this text in blue –>] “There is nothing like you, there was nothing like you, and there shall be nothing like you.” [/<– this text in blue ]
So the new tip of the week to support your connection with your wise self is this:
- Review (from the worksheet) the strengths that your future / wise self has in common with the current you
- Give yourself permission to appreciate your strengths – NO MATTER HOW AWKWARD IT FEELS.
- How to give yourself such permission? One way is to simply verbalize either of the above phrases above in blue (change it to the first person). Or rephrase that to something similar in your own words.
This self-visibility is potent stuff. The more willing you are to see and appreciate your strengths, the more opportunities you give of yourself to use them for your own life betterment and of others.
If it helps you, feel free to send to me what you wrote as your strengths, or back to yourself – so YOU can see them as you’re writing them out. You’ll be giving yourself permission literally to see your strengths, you see 😉
Email 5 – sent 14 days after workshop
Subj: How to change up your old belief to the new one compassionately
Let’s say, during the workshop, you had these insights –
1. Old belief to let go of: “It’s not safe for me to accept new experiences.”
2. New belief to nurture within yourself: “New experiences expand my life in joyful ways.”
How do we go from #1 to #2? After all, it can be downright scary thinking about going through an experience we’ve never had before.
The first thing to do, is to recognize that, when you came for the Speak with Your Future Self workshop, there WAS, and there still IS, a part of you that wanted change. That’s not gonna change.
And yes, there is also part of us that is afraid of the very change we’re intending to work on.
It seems like a battle between these 2 aspects of yourself. VERY frustrating, right?
So now, you’re aware, you have these 2 different voices vying for your attention.
That’s a GREAT thing.
Because, now that you’re aware of these 2 opposite “voices” of self, you get to CHOOSE which one to listen to, and which one to deny.
You see, the part of self that is resisting change, now that you’re aware of it, may sound louder than ever before. It could be because you’re now more AWARE of it. It was there before, but now, you probably weren’t so aware of it, so it was able to “escape” being flagged out to your attention. Now that it has your attention, it sounds louder.
The resistant part, is just a small part of you. Take heart, it’s not the whole of you. The aspect of you that is ready to change according to your heartfelt intent is actually larger.
How do we go about nurturing the aspect of self that is ready to change?
Let’s do this.
Ask yourself –
a. WHY you want to believe #2.
b. What are the benefits of that?
c. And then ask, why you CAN believe in #2 fully, SOONER rather than later?
One great way to do this, is to write out each question, at the top of 3 separate pieces of BLANK paper. Then take all the time to answer each question sequentially.
There’re no right or wrong answers. Just let your mind focus on those questions you’d have written on the paper and allow the answers to come to you. Play some soothing music in the background if you like.
Let me know how it goes 🙂

Subject: When challenges show up…
Remember that question you asked of your wise Future Self –
“What challenges did she / he have to overcome to accomplish her / his intent?” (Q14)
Yes, that one.
Why oh why do challenges HAVE to poke their noses in our otherwise hunky-dory lives?
The truth is, your wise Future Self is leading you to your next natural step of growth in sync with divine timing. She / he knows you are READY to outgrow the challenges when they are presented. Plus, she / he knows this growth will bring you new opportunities, new possibilities in your life.
Now what? How do you move forward with the challenges that you had a sneak preview of from your Future Self?
Well, there are several ways that can make the process of dealing with challenges easier.
Some of the possible ways could already be embedded within your written answers.
Have a look at what you wrote for the following questions in your worksheet. Because by reviewing your answers now, they can pop into your mind more easily than ever before to support you, when push comes to shove.
Q7. How has your intent completion helped fulfill your higher purpose?
___ [Recap your answer] ___
Q10. How to stay open to inner wisdom & guidance
__ [Recap your answer] ___
Q12. How did you make your journey joyful?
__ [Recap your answer] ___
Q13. Got support from who/what to make it easy
__ [Recap your answer] ___
And sure, there are many more ways to deal with challenges. The thing to remember is, no matter how much advice you get from your Future Self or from other wise sources, no matter how enlightening, are useful only if you choose to remember + apply them.
To make it easier for yourself, just keep your answers handy somewhere so you’ll be more likely to refer to and USE them ok?
If at any point you feel stuck, that’s ok, please don’t hit yourself over the head when it feels as if you weren’t able to follow through your Future self’s advice.
Feel free reach out to me any time for help on un-sticking some stuck-ness, if it feels right for you.

Subject: Strengths Your Future Self DevelopED
Yes, let’s get back to the qualities which you developed – Question 4 on your worksheet.
Remember, again – you ARE ready for this – do not give in to any doubt that you aren’t.
You know very well your Future Self wouldn’t have given you any advice you weren’t ready for.
Here’s a tip for you. Chances are, you -already- have th at quality(ies) , in baby (or maybe even in tween!) amounts.
Start LOOKING for evidence of it. Find examples of it in your now and in your past. Appreciate the tiniest, baby examples. Don’t brush it aside. Be open to welcoming it back in your life in whatever form and quantity it presents itself.
Let’s have a look at an example. From myself. That quality of being able to speak in front of people!
You know, giving a presentation in front of a group of people (even if it’s just 1 person sitting across from me) used to paralyze me. I’d get all tongue-tied. My eyes would go funny and squeeze themselves shut every 3 words that haphazardly formed in my mouth.
On that day when you guys turned up at the workshop, I had the flutterbyes. Big time. From 2 nights before. I couldn’t really sleep.
You see, speaking this way is NOT a strength that comes naturally for me.
In my kindergarten days, I was the only one who didn’t go up in front of the class to sing a classic rhyme that we learned in Singapore – “Polly Put the Kettle On.”
Every other classmate – I think all 39 of them – did. I was shuddering in more and more fear when it came closer and closer to my turn. I was sitting cross-legged on the floor like all my classmates did. Each minute felt longer than the next before I was “it.” It felt so cold and sweaty that day (in tropical sunny humid Singapore).
When the teacher called my name, I just hung my head low, and shook my head. I did not even dare to look into my teacher’s eye and tell her that I just couldn’t do it. She kept prompting me to go to the front of the class to sing it. I resisted and almost cried. I felt my face all flushed red in shame and embarrassment. I was holding back tears. I just wanted to fall off the face of the earth.
It’s funny what a mere -thought- of SINGING a SONG can do to a person eh?
You may say but in this case it’s in front of many people (thanks for your compassion, btw). But when we really look at the essential task at hand – it was simply to sing a song. And it didn’t even have to be perfect, like all my other classmates who sang before me already exemplified to me. Yet, my overwhelming fear didn’t allow me to see my classmates’ imperfection and see that it was ok to be imperfect.
The last thing I ever wanted to do as part of my life, was to present in front of people.
But something told me I had to get over that fear if I wanted to grow. I think that’s how you think too, right? Otherwise you wouldn’t have signed up for the workshop.
So, how did I prepare myself emotionally for the Future Self workshop?
By remembering the times when I did present myself to people in the simplest ways.
Like when I first made lunch for my entire family before my mum got her stroke. Yeah, it may be no big deal for you, and yes, it wasn’t a big deal. But I do admit it was a small deal, a baby deal. It was like a mini presentation for me. I was flustered, and nervous. But I did it anyway out of love – so yay!
The point is, start with thinking of baby examples you’ve already done that’s relevant to your intent.
Another example. Like, when I gave at eulogy (upon realizing last minute that no one else was up for doing it) at my mum’s memorial service few months ago in March. I was really really nervous. Even if it’s mostly in front of my relatives, I have to say I was still getting knots in my stomach. But I did it.
For a larger purpose. I wanted my all my family and relatives to be reminded of the best of my mum and leave the memorial service with as much love for her in their hearts as possible. It’s good for everyone.
At the end of the eulogy, one aunt came up to me and said it was very good. In my mind, I think it turned out that way not because I tried to be good. But because I was determined to share what I knew to be truly beautiful of my mum at her core that was not always obvious. I felt it was important to remind everyone and myself of that beauty that is in everyone.
Back to developing the strength to give the Future Self Workshop that you came for and I hope you did get something out of it…
There were lots of doubts about me giving it as a group workshop than just 1-on-1 private clients. But the feedback from private clients had been such that I knew this was important to make it accessible to more people.
I simply couldn’t hide behind my safe shell of working 1-to-1 though it is something I love doing and will continue to do so. Without a doubt, this workshop is something my spirit moved me to do, and I used the strength of the larger purpose, the strength of the larger knowing within, to move me forward and make the workshop a reality.
In sum, let’s break it down into 3 steps for developing qualities that your Future Self identified for you as being ripe and ready to grow –
1. Ask, what’s your real WHY, your real purpose, for giving the intent you gave? Remind yourself of that.
2. Then think of the times when you already had taken baby steps to develop the strength that your Future Self said you’d develop, and know you’re already on your way.
3. And then, you can even add this powerful phrase I’d shared with you earlier – “There’s more where this came from.”
PS: The last email in this support series post-workshop will come in on Tue evening. “See” you again then.

Subj: Celebration! And a very special year-end offer inside
This is the last of the Future Self workshop support series.
I hope you’ve found it useful as much as I’ve enjoyed sharing some of the quickest and yet most effective tools for connecting with your Future Self.
It’s been exactly a month since you attended the Future Self workshop and got advice from one of your most trusted life guides (your wise self!).
Let’s reflect and ask, how can you celebrate the guidance you’ve received and what you’ve put into practice?
Manifestation of soul-driven intents can come easily with guidance from your larger / higher / wiser self, but only when we put the guidance we received into real practice.
I love how Einstein was said to have put it, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
Here’s another question for you.
Would you like to accelerate your journey of actualizing your intent(s) in gentle ways?
If you said yes, I can offer you a special 1-on-1 personalized Heart-Mind Clarity session to support you in a laser-focused way over the phone or online.
So if you’re interested in working with me personally to gently but powerfully accelerate the actualization of your heartfelt intent, this could be the perfect opportunity for you.
My usual 1-on-1 laser-support work is currently C$90 per session, about 1-2 hours each. To some, it may sound like it’s not cheap.
To be perfectly honest, interestingly, I have worked with people who gave $180 voluntarily, simply because they’ve tried many things before and know right away the real transformative value of our working together. What clients receive in 1 session, some have told me is like what they get after several rounds of other professional 1-to-1 sessions.
This is NOT at all an attempt to put down anything you’ve ever tried, or want to try, or anybody out there. Nonono.
In fact, I think it’s good to have many approaches. Why? Because different approaches suit different people. There is no right or wrong approach. Just different. At different phases in our lives, we may gravitate and be served by one approach more than another. Diversity is all good.
So let me say this. If at this very point in your life, you want a fresh, gentle approach to feeling better than you’ve ever been, feeling more at ease than you ever have, all whilst in the process of accomplishing your heartfelt intent, this is where we can work together.
To make it easy for you, just for these end-of-the-year holidays, you can have one 1-on-1 laser-focused Heart-Mind Clarity session for only $33. A big 63% savings for you. To take advantage of this special offer, just hit reply within the next 5 days, by Saturday 15th Dec.
What will you leave the session with?
1. Clarity as to how to soften any resistance you may have from practicing the advice your Future Self has given to you
2. More peace in your heart and mind – a great place to be for making good decisions!
3. Feeling brighter, clearer, more energized
Try a session and see if this is a good fit for you. I think you’re going to feel very at ease and yet empowered at the same time. But if you’re unsatisfied for any reason, simply tell me within 14 days after the session and you’ll get a prompt refund. No hard feelings, promise 🙂
If you feel called to have this Heart-Mind Clarity session at this special rate, send me a quick email by Sat 15th Dec, and answer the following 3 questions:
1. What inspired you to take up this 1-on-1 session?
2. Describe any self-discovery work, self-betterment work, or energy work you’ve done. If you’ve done a lot and it’s too much info to write, just pick your 3 favorites.
3. Your coming availabilities to meet
To your intentionally-created, brightest future created from the inner you that shows you the way forward!
