How my life was transformed

I’m going to tell a story now of a man who having served his time in a war torn country, but due to a very sensitive nature suffered from what they like to call ‘Post traumatic stress disorder’, he was like this for many, many years, with all the symptoms of anger, paranoid, fear and anxiety, and was impossible to live with. He had studied everything from self help gurus, to spiritual teachers to conventional counselling {that man was I} but nothing helped, I just got worse and worse, which ended up in me leaving home, and in the process throwing away every thing I had ever built up, that was half way decent. After a year I went back home, my tail between my legs, to try over. But no, I was still impossible to live with, and there was never any real peace with me around. I had tried every kind of meditation, self hypnosis, positive thinking, and nothing worked. The writing did help me quite a bit, but it was never enough.

Then one day I discovered on the net an American gentleman, named John Sherman. I went on his site, at no cost whatsoever And I heard what he said, when he told me one simple thing to do. He told me to go behind my thoughts and just look at me
The me that is there behind all the thoughts and emotions when everything is gone; The me one speaks about when he or she points to themselves and says ‘me‘. Now this seemed so simplistic to me, and I kind of scoffed at it, but I tried it anyway, because I was rather desperate to bring about some changes, and I had tried everything else. it was so easy for me, and I started to do it whenever it came to me to do so. This was four years ago now, and I have practiced what he said religiously.

Now, four years later I am a different being, the anger is gone, the misery is non existent, My fear of death is all but gone, and I feel like life is one big wonderful dance. If anyone has troubles of this kind and cannot lead a peaceful life… go to 
‘’ And let John and his wife Carla help you, there are no conditions no religion and definitely no payments to be made. Just felt I had to tell someone about the Sherman’s, because of what happened to me     Peter.

    I am glad you shared this Peter, the sharing is timely for me, I haven't gone through such ordeal as you describe here, but I could use some insight as the how to find her, I believe that God's uses us to bring his message across, today he has used you, bless your heart dearest one, and thank you is just a word, but, with my heart behind it, it all I have to give you, & of course Love, is always my token, good day Sir xxx

    Thank you Jake, before I done Johns simple act, I was really in a mess, so I feel that I owe it to him to put his name around Peter

    Thank you for your comment Anne Lise. there are so many con men out there who want money and give you bulldust, but John and Carla Sherman are the real thing. I sometimes give them a donation, but all their podcasts and everything cost nothing, and they have helped thousands of unhappy people. I have never spread the word round before, but I really do believe in these people Peter
