  • An increase in the feelings of joy, peace, hope and security
  • A greater ability to feel God’s love
  • A greater ability to receive love from other people
  • Elimination of self-condemnation
  • The ability to love others (even our enemies)
  • An increased ability to hear God clearly and receive truth
  • An increased ability to make better decisions
  • Increased victory over persistent temptations
  • Increased victory over compulsive behaviors
  • The ability to be balanced, to rest and relax
  • The ability to set appropriate boundaries without feeling guilty
