“Making the decision to follow my heart, when it came to romantic love, has been one of my most exhilarating decisions.”
Sure I’ve had romantic relationships in the past that I poured out my heart for; however, I’ve never had someone pour out their heart as vulnerably and genuinely as I have. I finally feel that I’m in love with someone at the same time that they are in love with me. No gimmicks.
Self-love, self-respect, and self-awareness have manifested some truly incredible miracles in my life. I feel the need to be a constant advocate of loving yourself. When you decide to focus on loving yourself no matter what, you begin to see how precious you really are. That’s how you cherish yourself and others. Self-love ROCKS!
I’ve done a number of different self-help things in my life, but having a supportive group has really made it so much easier and the effects more long lasting for me. Now when I get out of bed in the morning, I feel like it’s an opportunity, rather than dreading getting up. Thanks Tim!
“I highly recommend Tim’s workshops, he has walked the walk and shares his personal journey to self-love.”
My experience with Tim’s workshops is that for the first time, I feel like I have received practical tools that have given tangible results in experiencing self-love. A long time seeker, I have grown and blossomed in so many ways in my life, but I kept getting stuck on how to love myself — the intellect aware of the need but the heart not buying-in, not knowing the how-to or the “what if I get hurt again?”. How do you love that which you dislike?
I, like so many of us, was raised in a family of critics who judged me and themselves and that perpetuated in my life. Tim shared a statement that struck gold with me —”We teach people how to treat us.” I realized that for most of my life I was helping people reinforce the belief planted in my head as a child: “You are difficult to love.”
I am finding my voice, speaking up for myself when previously I would have just suppressed my feelings, dipping my toes in the waters of vulnerability as an act of self-love …

“I got engaged in less than 5 months after the training! If you told me I would find my future husband this fast, I would have thought you were crazy.”
“We met two months after the course, and now we’re MARRIED!”
It’s been two years since the course, and life is amazing! Jay and I got married just two months ago nd we’re really loving this life we’re creating together. What a wonderful journey it’s been. We’re so happy to have found one another!
“I offer deep gratitude to Tim for helping to move me into what is becoming the most potent part of my life journey.”
Tim not only has the ability and stamina to lovingly yet powerfully hold a client in his/her highest potential, he can also harness the energy of an entire group of people and with his guidance, inquiries and highly accessible visualizations help pierce through the various blockages most have to experiencing deep self-love. And perhaps most crucial is Tim’s steadfast commitment to the sustainability of living such a life, as is evident in his exquisite follow-up coaching.
I ended up with probably one of the most profound and significant practices that would begin to transform every aspect of my life.

“Self-love training via Tim Hastings has made such a huge impact on the last few months of my life.”
During the visualizations, I have discovered new capacities to see myself and this world through a lens of compassion and true caring. This self-love work is the most important healing we can do, and Tim has created a pathway towards it. Thanks Tim for your beautiful trailblazing and for showing us the way for deeper love and understanding for ourselves!
“I did what you told me. I fell in love with myself. :) It’s a year later, and we’re STILL head over heels for each other :) beyond happy!”
“Since beginning the course I’m amazed at how life is opening up and things are just dropping in my lap now.”
As a coach and trainer for the last 20 years I’ve seen and done a fair amount of personal growth work. What’s been so empowering is to really experience how having more self-love can change so many aspects of my life. If we truly believe that we create our own reality, then this is the core of it all. Even two or three years ago, I wouldn’t have had the self confidence to say, “Oh yeah, I can do this.”
I came into this thinking this is just another course … It’s amazing to me how life is just opening up and things are just dropping in my lap now.
Cindi BergenPersonal Growth Trainer | Coach
“It was much easier than years of cognitive therapy!”
Since taking your course, I have definitely noticed that I am a lot easier on myself. I think I’ve always been very compassionate with others, but I haven’t always let that compassion include myself. I have noticed that I am not falling into that negative self-chatter as much, and that I am very kind and compassionate towards myself. It’s been a huge foundational shift that is solidifying a new way of thinking, and seems to have been easily implemented into my life on a daily basis.

“Joining one of Tim Hastings weekly tele-courses has made a huge impact on my life.”
I have always struggled with anxiety and stress and the visualization practices that he offered helped me to get out of my head and into my heart. The result is that my relationships in my community are improving, new projects that I align with are flowing into my life and, overall I feel more at ease. The most important personal change is that the course helped me to make my daily practices a priority in my life. I feel like I have more time, awareness, and presence in my daily activities.
The course also changed my view of abundance and has helped me to operate from a new found place of generosity. I am grateful for Tim’s coaching and his dedication to helping others live a more fulfilled and energized life.

“It feels like when I began supporting myself through self love, life began to mirror back and support me.”
When I started Tim’s training, I was unemployed and not sure what was next for me. I really trusted myself and decided to join the training anyway, even though money was tight. In a very short amount of time, a job found me! I love what I do, and am able to contribute to our family’s household income again, which feels really satisfying.
I think what the training helped most with was to value myself so that a great job could show up in my life. I just feel so much more supported in my life now.

“What Tim has to share is priceless. His ability to see the bigger picture has smoothly guided me to a more peaceful and prosperous life.”
Michele Taggart6 time World Snowboarding Champion
“All in all, this training has created really tangible results in my life, and I’m so happy I chose to join!”
One of the biggest shifts I’ve noticed from Tim’s training is that I have a lot more patience with others and myself now. I hadn’t noticed how impatient I was before! It’s subtle but super powerful. When I’m driving in traffic, with family, or working with clients I just see how different I am with them.
Another really profound shift is that I can see all of my relationships beginning to really change for the positive. For instance, my mother and I have done a lot of different work to heal our relationship. But since the trainings we’re really been accepting one another-—we actually hug now! And she’s not even in the training!

“During a time when I was feeling completely depleted and hopeless, Tim offered suggestions and insights that were instrumental in moving me into a better space resulting in me finding work and becoming financially stable again.”
I was recommended to speak to Tim by a friend of mine who felt he could help me “move the clog” through the drain. Although we had never met in person, I had an immediate connection with him over the phone. Tim was totally focused on assisting me push through a tough period I was experiencing with depression due to being unemployed with no prospects on the horizon.
Introducing methods of visualization, meditation techniques and motivational videos, Tim provided me the tools I needed to remain focused and accomplish my goals. During a time I was feeling completely depleted and hopeless, Tim offered suggestions and insights that were instrumental in moving me into a better space resulting in me finding work and becoming financially stable again. His compassion, kindness and dedication to my path, as well as assurance I was not alone in the process, truly made the difference I was seeking. I am truly grateful for his work!

“Simply put, I now choose to be happy, and live powerfully in my life.”
I had not realized, until working with Tim, that I was not authentically happy and that I doubted myself A LOT. I used to be happy a long time ago, when I didn’t know better. Throughout life, what I call “gunk,” had been building up and dragging me down for a long time. I was not aware of this until I started working with Tim; now I get to love myself and be empowered.
I feel full and excited for life because I know who I am now and what I can or cannot handle. My kids feel it, my family sees it, and I am doing things in life, which takes action. Being in action, for instance, is going on that meditation retreat or talking to this or that person. These are the treasures in life and without all that “gunk” weighing me down I get to have so much fun!

“I have a new appreciation of myself—I have learned that you have to create a love connection with yourself before you can love others.”
Mary ScannellCreator – Living in the Present Moment
“I have learned how to identify where I have given up my power in my relationship, and how to take that power back.”
When we began our work, I did not trust my ability to make decisions, I had a lack of self worth, and my relationships were out of balance. Many who know me would never guess that I struggled in my life this way. I was a great pretender.
I have always known that I can create or do anything I wish in my life, but now I have the confidence to actually pursue my dreams, to really create instead of just dream in fantasyland! And this has enabled me to take better care of myself so that I am the empowered man that the right woman for me really needs and wants.
Working with Tim represents the most impactful decision I have made during this stage of my life.
“Tim has been extremely instrumental in making profound shifts in my life.”
If I had to pick one I’d say I have “chilled out” substantially. I’m still the same go getter I’ve always been, but now I now have the ability to relax when tense situations come up in my life. I’m able to live in the moment and enjoy the little things. It’s still a work in progress but the progress so far has been amazing.
I originally went to him with the hope of a new career path. Through our work together I found it’s much more complex and that I needed to work on me first. He has great intuition to run with the things you tell him in a direction that facilitates change. It amazing to me how he can queue in on a phrase in a conversation that seems so meaningless and identify what I’m really saying and what can be done to move forward. I have seen so many positive changes in my life through working with Tim.

“Now, I accept what I say to other people, even if it isn’t perfect, and go on with life, not looking back at the past.”
The self love calls were extremely impactful and produced long-term benefits for me. The most profound thing that I noticed was that I began to stop second guessing myself in my daily life. Before, I would occasionally say something to someone or a group of people, then I would second guess what I said, think about what I should have said instead, or wonder if what I said was the right thing or not.
I am grateful for the group and the calls that Tim hosted. Thank you!

“I’ve been diagnosed with Crohns and have IBS and those symptoms have significantly decreased since beginning the course.”
I have quite a few medical conditions where I deal with a lot of joint pain, fatigue, and stomach issues. Since taking your course, all of my symptoms have improved. I have seen profound improvement with my flexibility and joint pain, so I’m really happy about that too. This was quite unexpected, as I didn’t think my health challenges could be connected to how much I loved myself. As I’ve gotten a better attitude about myself, my health has gotten significantly better as well.
Mentally and emotionally, I see the biggest shift is the ability to have more control over my thoughts, in terms of getting rid of all of these automatic negative thoughts and misinterpretations. This is a lasting thing, and it’s just been getting better and better. The amount of energy and mental clarity that I’ve been having is on another level that I’ve ever had before.

“I credit, in part, his enlightened coaching abilities for helping me to find my way out of the darkness and back towards the light. ”
“After thirty plus years of workshops, trainings, and retreats; and doing all of this esoteric stuff to create changes in myself, it’s come back to this simple teaching on Self Love.”
One of the biggest impacts that Tim’s training has had is that I understand myself and what’s running me on the inside. It’s allowed me to really see myself the way that I am, and to recognize my patterns more clearly. It’s so basic and core to us all, and at the same time it’s powerfully transformative. I’ve recognized that telling myself that I love myself AND like myself really effects how good I feel overall.
And when I feel better about myself, I’m experiencing how much better my relationships have gotten. This definitely makes potentially challenging relationships and situations A LOT easier to deal with. I’m so glad that I decided to jump on board with the training!
Skye ShansbyCoach; Massage Therapist
“My relationships have gotten so much better with my family and friends. And it happened so quickly!”
Over the past few months, I was having many very dark and depressed days, and my life started seeming very meaningless. That’s when my friend, James, thought that it would be a good idea for me to connect with you. I took it seriously, and I’m amazed at how different I feel! I learned that I needed to start taking care of myself- loving myself. That’s what was missing. After only a few days, I started seeing lots of changes in my life. Now, I’m feeling a sense of wholeness, and a feeling of lightness. I’m much calmer and more peaceful than I was before. Thank you so much for this work Tim.

“Tim has the uncanny ability to see life with a clear vision that gets right to the heart of things.”
Tim is a wise man. He’s seen a lot, traveled, done things, and lived. He’s got a lot of experience, understands people, and how we get along in this world. He’s given me advice and suggestions that have been invaluable and concise. He’s not a dogma guy and doesn’t speak like some high fallutin’ philosopher. He just has the uncanny ability to see life with a clear vision that gets right to the heart of things. At crucial junctures on my path, when I might have been too blinded by my emotions or attachments to see what was going on with me, he offered clarity and concrete suggestions.
Years have passed and I have flourished. Since I took his advice, and acted on it, I owe him a lot of credit in my success. I have so much appreciation for this man. His wise and poignant words have really stuck with me and transcended my day to day ups and downs. Thanks Tim!

“Tim’s Self Love training helps one create a Self Love practice and eventually a realization that I Am that—Self Love. I am the One that I’ve been waiting for! Thanks, Tim!”

“If I had to describe Tim Hastings in one word, it would be authentic.”
Clearly, he’s has dedicated himself to being the best version of himself and has a passion for helping others become the best versions of themselves. He has certainly helped me become a better version of myself. While working with Tim, he introduced me to introspective exercises that have helped me identify how to become a better person. He’s also guided me in finding my own answers and finding the meaning of everyday life experiences. Tim has taught me to not take things for granted and to treat everyday as an opportunity to do something great and to be GREAT!
I highly recommend Tim to anyone looking to unlock their full potential. Whether you are a missionary looking for the right cause or a corporate executive looking for growth, he’ll get you there. There are many programs that offer self growth, but I can assure you from experience, that none of these have the authenticity and passion that Tim brings to the table.

“Tim has never failed to help me find that extra bit of insight and courage necessary to lift me over the last hurdle, or the next hurdle”
Tim Hastings has worked closely with me on a number of very personal and deeply challenging issues over the last four years; he’s never failed to help me find that extra bit of insight and courage necessary to lift me over the last hurdle, or the next hurdle. Personal growth and awareness, and more importantly, personal peace and happiness, these are so clearly this man’s bread and butter, his life’s dedication. His greatest assets in this: he truly cares, and he listens, I mean he really listens. And he’s done the work. He’s still doing the work, but with an obvious sense of optimism, enthusiasm… and usually with a huge grin on his face!
“When starting something new and scary Tim is the guy we all want on our side!”
I was well into the first year of my new business and things were not going well. I was not making enough money to cover expenses, my savings were gone and credit lines were maxed out. My mom had some medical challenges so I had moved her in with me the year prior to opening my business, and I was her primary care provider. As the financial burdens rose my emotional and spiritual self sank.
The first business consultant I contacted came out to my office and after spending 20 minutes with her she told me that I needed to get on an antidepressant. I was barely holding things together, so at the advice of a friend I went to the Boise State University Small Business Center for support. There I was told by a professional business consultant that I was too depressed to make this work. Her advice to me was to put my mom in a nursing home and move my business into my house. Oh, and to get on an antidepressant of course.
As I sat in the BSU parking lot sobbing and feeling completely defeated I called Tim. Tim asked me to come over immediately. You see, Tim knew my vision and my passion well. There was no way he was going to sit idle as others allowed my dreams to be unimportant. I spent about 2 hours at Tim’s house that morning. The fist 10 minutes or so I played the poor me card, but Tim would have no part of that. In his compassionate and heart-felt way he supported me in shifting my victim energy into possibility thinking. By the time I left his house I had a plan to generate the cash I needed to pay my bills that month. But more importantly I left there believing in me and my dream to help others. Five years later my business/my dream is a successful pediatric therapy clinic called The Lotus Tree. I’ve expanded 3 times and have ten employees for whom I provide health insurance.. We are guided by love, acceptance and dreams. Thank you Tim for your clarity and guidance. Success comes in community and community is what Tim brings forth.

Dennis PateeShaman | Quest Leader | Teacher
“Tim is an exceptional life coach and mentor, and one of the most truly happy, positive & inspirational human beings I have ever had the fortune & pleasure to know in this life.”
He is not only easy to open up to, and speak honestly with, but he is so naturally motivating; he knows how to listen and be honest yet careful and sensitive to your needs. He worked really hard to give me insight into my struggles in certain areas of my life; helping me develop the right tools to help me to focus on what I wanted to see, rather than focusing on what I didn’t want to see happen in different areas of my life.
I will continue to use these techniques Tim taught me, and also have my positive affirmations and reminders of how to change my mind-state whenever I need to. Tim is truly gifted and I am so lucky and forever grateful for his kindness, help and support.
