About Margot Ridler
How long have you been doing the work you are doing and why do you call yourself an intuitive visionary?
I call myself an intuitive visionary because I see a potential in human beings that hardly anyone knows anything about. Via a long and truly challenging process, I have come to understand what it takes to live with lasting peace, freedom and happiness. After having been involved in the self-improvement and personal transformation industry for almost twenty years, I came to the shocking realization that self-improvement does not bring about what I call True Freedom. Self-improvement does exactly what the term implies - improve the personal self. You transform yourself, change negative aspects into positive ones, and makeover your personal self into a more competent, positive and better functioning self. However, you will not free your powerful Essence this way. The real YOU, which is the source of true peace and happiness will remain trapped. Now it is simply trapped behind a more well thought out and improved structure of self.
How did you come to this revolutionary realization?
To answer this question, I must start at the beginning. For me, the process of liberation and freedom unfolded over the course of my entire life. Before I begin, I would like to place a disclaimer. My story is truly radical and might scare you. However, only by going through all that I went through could I reach the understanding I now have. I can assist you now in the manner that I do because I am someone who has been through the fire and has come out the other end a changed person. Please, read this overview of my journey as a testament of what I encountered so that you know my qualifications. I believe I went through the fire so that maybe you don’t have to, so that I can assist you in understanding how life truly works. Thank you for your interest and willingness to explore what I share and teach.
Ever since I was a small child, I lived with extreme depression, anxiety and bitterness. I come from a family system whose family members and ancestors lived lives that were fraught with severe trauma, suffering, pain and unhappiness. When I was 28-years-old, my therapist sent me to learn how to meditate to reduce the high stress levels I was experiencing. Moments after sitting down with my eyes closed, it was as if a door was ripped open inside of me. In an instant, the misery I had carried all my life vanished as if it had never existed. I felt alive, vibrant and happy for the first time in my life. I had no idea a person could feel this good. The heavy energy of anxiety and resentment, which had kept me down for almost three decades was completely gone. As I walked out of the meditation hall it seemed that my feet weren’t touching the ground. That’s how light and free I felt. Somehow, miraculously, access to my habitual self had been severed. I no longer operated from my usual “me”. This delightful way of being, which I call True Freedom, lasted four weeks. Then my familiar, depressive self resurfaced and took over again. But now I knew that a different way of life was possible. What was this other state? How could it surface from one instant to the next? Where had it been hiding all this time? Why did it not continue? How could my lifelong negativity disappear in one fell swoop? What was required to reclaim this state of True Freedom so I could live it for the rest of my life? All these questions circulated around in my brain. I vowed I would not rest until I gained all the answers to all my questions one day, not leaving one stone unturned, no matter what it took.
After I made this promise, my life took a completely unforeseen turn. I began to explore ways in which I could release deeply held, lifelong negativity in the quickest, most profound manner possible. I began working with children and later with adults and families. This is how my career in the field of self-improvement and personal transformation began in the late 1980’s. It was Bert Hellinger’s trans-generational healing approach called Family Constellations that generated the most amazing results not only in my own life but also in the lives of my clients. I loved facilitating family constellations because in one session, I was able to help people release challenges they carried their whole life. It was incredibly rewarding to free my clients of their unconscious entanglements with trauma, pain and suffering that weren’t actually theirs but had been passed down to them from their family members and ancestors as inherited legacies.
To me, Family Constellation Work was like a super highway that offered a fast track to True Freedom. This is what I thought anyway, until December 2005. That’s when a direct-seeing showed me that the human vessel is empty and devoid of a personal self. It was such a clear understanding of a phenomenon I knew to be true but couldn’t rationally explain. Realizing that the human body exists without a personal self made my professional work instantly inconsequential. Who was I serving if a person didn’t have a personal self? Why work on changing negative aspects into positive ones when the self didn’t exist? The direct-seeing revealed also that working on the personal self was a never-ending enterprise. As soon as one issue was resolved another issue would pop up in an hour, a day, a week, a month. Suddenly it was so obvious that personal transformation was incapable of setting a person truly free from their continuous troubles and challenges. But what could? At the time I had no idea. Instantly, my sense of integrity let me know I could not continue my work now that I knew I was unable to assist people in reaching True Freedom. It was True Freedom that I had vowed to gain for myself and had committed to help others to reach also. Since I now knew Family Constellation Work was unable to get us there, I closed the doors to my business immediately. Without a moment’s consideration of what this might mean to me and my future, I walked away from my profession and life I had built for almost twenty years.
What happened after this has been the ride of a lifetime. I am sharing with you here just a brief synopsis. You can read about my incredible journey in my second visual book The Liberation Process - How I Cracked The Code Of True Freedom. Within six months, an incomprehensible process ensued that deconstructed the densely knit conglomerate of my personal self. The previously sturdy sense of Margot Ridler became ever more flimsy. Its many thoughts, beliefs, ideas, concepts, values, meanings and understandings collapsed daily at rapid speed. Additionally, the ability to remain plugged into our regular Western lifestyle and social structure became impossible. Within a short few months I was rendered homeless and almost penniless. Having my entire personal self-structure and stable life disassembled made absolutely no sense. I had never heard or read anything about this happening to anyone else during all the years of my professional studies. I began calling this emptying-out, clearing-away and making-space experience, the Liberation Process. As strange and unfamiliar as this unfolding was, I knew everything was going to be okay. On many occasions, for a few hours at a time, the same delightful way of being surfaced that I had experienced for one month all those years ago. I understood that I was undergoing a process that was unprecedented. I would have to ride this process out to wherever it would take me. Eventually, I found evidence that the Liberation Process was well documented. Throughout the ages, the exact same process that transpired for me was explained in great detail in many spiritual and religious traditions. . This is when I realized that the process that had been unfolding for me was not a psychological one. It was about uncovering my powerful Essence, my True, Immortal, Impersonal Nature, which exists beyond the personal self. This explained why I hadn’t found the Liberation Process recorded in any Western psychological material. Our current scientific model of a human being has no reference point for a Self that exists beyond the personal self.
For the next three and a half years, I lived as a homeless, penniless wandering hermit in Central America and Mexico. I didn’t speak the local language; didn’t know why I was in these countries or what I was going to do from one moment to the next. As strange as this statement might sound, it was extremely fortuitous to find myself in this severe condition. Being thoroughly immersed in the unknown was the only way to learn what True Freedom looks and feels like in daily life. Since the content of my personal self had been mostly erased, I could explore what life is like without the dictates and promptings of my personal self. All the normal fears, worries and uncertainties, which would have otherwise been enormous, were not activated. No mental chatter plagued me. No anxieties about how to survive were ripping my sanity apart. No confusion of what to do from day to day was making my physical body ill. Nope! I was vitally alive, alert and truly present to each moment. My awareness was super sharp. I was highly perceptive of everything that was going on around me. It was like I had gained a bird’s eye view that allowed me to notice aspects about life of which I would not have been conscious before. When our minds are busy with non-stop mental chatter and our emotions are running wild with fears, needs, hopes, wishes, longings, likes and dislikes, our Awareness will be hijacked and trapped. We will be unable to take accurate notice of what is truly happening. Our consciousness will not be able to be neutral, unbiased and clear. It will be preoccupied with the spewing forth of our habitual, automatic programming. Living life from the unknown provides a life that is incredibly liberating, delightful, adventure-filled and free. Each moment, I felt excitement and delight about what would surface next. I felt so blessed for this firsthand, direct experience of living with True Freedom.
Then in November 2009, at the age forty-seven, a last and final shift in understanding took place. Traditionally, this shift is called spiritual awakening or enlightenment, although I simply call it direct-seeing. It’s when a person recognizes with their “second sight” the underlying, invisible, formless foundation of the physical world, including one’s own personal self. It was the ultimate Aha! moment I had been after since I was twenty-eight years old. What freedom! I laughed out loud at the absurdity of our beliefs and convictions. We take for real what isn’t real at all. We take as meaningful, valuable and important what isn’t meaningful, valuable and important at all. Suddenly, it was crystal clear how life truly worked. It’s the most ingenious setup imaginable. Our left-brain, logical thinking capacities and limited physical senses can never grasp that the essential nature of our physical world is non-physical. We believe we are this personal self, which we take to be real, solid and unquestionable. We cannot fathom that life could be done without it. However, we don’t realize that the personal self is a mere programmed, robotic structure. It is made up of inherited, regurgitated beliefs, thoughts, feelings, emotions and instinctual drives. It can never supply us with the freedom and happiness we seek. It’s the content of the personal self that produces the prison walls that make us feel stuck, small, hindered, trapped and unfree. Only by dismantling these prison walls can we ever hope to find our true, immortal, powerful Essence – the source of true peace, lasting happiness and real freedom.
Since 2012, I have dedicated my life anew. I am incredibly thrilled to once again help people find True Freedom, now that I know for certain what is required in reaching it. My work comprises five levels. Not all people will address all five levels in their work with me. In fact, most people will address only the first two or three levels. However, I hold the vision and awareness of all five. This allows my clients to get in touch with the vibration of freedom that is innate in them. At the first level, I employ the insights, understanding and wisdom I gained during my Liberation Process to help my clients grasp the difference between their programmed self and their immortal, powerful Essence.. At the second level, I utilize the trans-generational principles I acquired from Family Constellation Work to assist my clients in releasing their inherited mental, emotional and instinctual programming, which keeps their powerful Essence trapped. At the third level, I help my clients understand what I learned from Shamanism. Our personal issues are simultaneously collective issues. I encourage my clients to see the bigger picture. By releasing their programming, they are contributing to loosen the stranglehold-grip humanity’s collective mental-emotional-instinctual programming has over them. It’s the collective force that makes programming so incredibly sticky and hard to release. At the forth level, my own process showed me that, at the very core, all programming revolves around individual survival and self-preservation. How are we unconsciously organizing our life so that our survival, wellbeing and success are assured? What do we say yes or no to in order to feel safe, loved, wanted and that we count? True Freedom requires that we free all our programming on all four levels. These four levels are anchored deeply in each person’s genetic imprint and must be released with care, respect, kindness and love. At the fifth level, I help my clients understand when we allow our immortal, powerful Essence to be in charge of our life, we will be moved in a way that benefits all beings. Impulses generated by our personal self toward our own success and gain at the expense of others will no longer surface. It would stagger our imagination to know what kind of life could be created when masses of people begin to operate from their immortal, powerful Essence. Creating a world where all life prospers would be a foregone conclusion. This wholistic, all-inclusive mindset would be completely logical and rational. It is impossible to comprehend with our current consciousness the changes that could be produced overnight.
It is this freeing up of these five levels of programming that I offer my clients with my trans-generational healing work. The openness, joy, spaciousness, delight and freedom that is experienced after the release of an inherited, unconscious programming is immense. To assist the best way possible, I created the one-month signature program Recover Your Powerful Essence™ – Release all your generational blocks and past programming with Trans-Generational Healing. This program can be accessed from anywhere in the world for persons seeking True Freedom.
Who are your clients?
I work with people just like you who are tired of the never-ending project of self-improvement and personal transformation. My clients have an intrinsic knowing that there exists something else beyond the drive to continually work on their personal self. The clients who work with me are 100% ready to discover what this something else is. They are dedicated toward freedom in their life and are willing to do whatever brutally honest release work might be necessary.
What makes you different from other professionals in the personal development and self-improvement arena?
As explained above, my work involves releasing the entire structure of the personal self instead of improving aspects of the personal self by changing negative parts into positive ones. The goal of my work is to unveil your true, immortal, powerful Essence so that it can shine forth and operate freely in your life. Your real YOU has always been there. It is simply covered up by your densely-knit, inherited programming. My work helps you claim your birthright of True Freedom, which allows you to know who you really are, and then live from your powerful Essence.
What makes you different from other professionals in the spiritual awakening and enlightenment industry?
What I have found to be the case with most spiritual awakening and enlightenment teachers is that they do not thoroughly understand the makeup of the personal self. Meditation is the tool that is promoted to quiet the mind and emotions so that one’s underlying immortal, powerful Essence can be recognized. This is a wonderful practice but has its limitations. What happens the moment a person gets up from their meditation cushion? The personal self resumes center stage. That’s because the personal self operates with enormous power and force. Generation after generation, its programming has been passed down for thousands of years. I am extremely doubtful that meditation can release the age-old, instinctual survival programming. I’d say this is the reason so many teachers and gurus fall prey to their instinctual drives even though they experienced a deep, abiding direct-seeing. To live True Freedom in daily life in an embodied, integrated way, all our inherited programming has to be released. Only in this way can our true, powerful Essence express itself freely and fully in each moment.
What kind of a person do you work with best? What do you expect of me?
My signature program Recover Your Powerful Essence™ – Release all your generational blocks and past programming with Trans-Generational Healing is designed for people who are absolutely excited and serious about the prospect of releasing their personal self’s programming so that they can free their powerful Essence from its lifelong incarceration. I would need you to be one hundred percent willing to look at your programmed self with complete honestly. One hundred percent honestly is the only way to uproot and release the often thousands of years old programming. I would also need you to be willing to drop all your learned knowledge and approach my work with completely new eyes. Additionally, I would need you to release all your preconceived notions of what your immortal, powerful Essence is until you experience a taste first-hand for yourself. Our current understanding of freedom is centered around making the personal self more positive. But this is not the freedom I am talking about. True Freedom is something very different from the freedom experienced by a positively transformed personal self.
For what type of person are your programs NOT going to work?
Please know that I am extremely selective in who I work with because I need a person to be serious and ready to work with me. My trans-generational healing work is very powerful and intense. You need to truly want freedom in your life. If freedom is not what you are after I am not the right person for you. This is why I screen each person very carefully with a thirty minute Introductory Call to determine if my signature program is a good fit for you. This call is also for you to find out if what I offer is right for you. The people that end up working with me have an extremely success rate in releasing the programming we worked on freeing-up. This saves a lot of years of therapy and money spent month after month on transformative work that in the end does not really provide True Freedom. However, I am not a miracle worker. I can only help a person who wants freedom really badly. Such a human being is committed to dropping any programming that might stand in the way of living with peace, joy, happiness and aliveness. With such a person my job is easy. We work together as a team toward the same goal – True Freedom for the person.
I DO charge for my signature program. Therefore, my program is NOT for those who have no money and are financially desperate. It’s been my experience that people in financial crisis do not trust my guidance anyway. These people often argue and fight with me - especially, the closer we come to a programming that threatens a person’s self-identity and unconscious survival strategies. This is when some people become super protective of their programming. It's a strange phenomenon. Whereas one would think people become more eager to drop the programming that entraps their true nature from living freely, they actually become more clingy and attached. The work I do means not a single programming can remain hidden. I work strictly via intuitive, direct-knowing. Any kind of programming that stands in the way of a person’s freedom, I will literally smell it. Therefore, once I become aware of a programming running that had previously been unconscious, I will point it out so that my clients can see it and release it if they wish. My work is truly unique and one of a kind. It is only right for certain kinds of people. This is why I am very strict. I don’t accept anyone who I sense is not ready to work with me or who is unwilling to happily pay my program fees.
If you fall within any of these two categories, I encourage you to read my visual books, which will aid you tremendously in grasping clearly what the personal self is, what your true, powerful Essence is and what process is involved in setting your real YOU truly free.
What exactly does your one-month signature program Recover Your Powerful Essence™ – Release all your generational blocks and past programming with Trans-Generational Healing include?
My program is truly unique and super helpful because you’ll have access to me for one entire month via email support and one on one video calls. This sustained support and access to my guidance and direction will assist you in releasing the often incredibly hidden, unconscious and stubborn programming.
1. After you pay the program fee, I will send you a Questionnaire to fill out to list details about your family history. I will also ask you to describe clearly the most pressing, current issue from which you would like to find freedom.
2. Once I receive your filled out Family History Questionnaire and your stated intent for the six-week program, I will take three days to review it. I will meditate with it to get an intuitive understanding of your family history and the programming involved. This allows me to see which programming needs to be given priority in being released so that you will experience more freedom in your life.
3. As needed I will be in contact with you via email in case I need extra clarification on your family history. This back and forth email engagement with you before our first video meeting can be quite involved, depending on your family history. This correspondence will be highly informative to you. It might already generate insights and releases in you.
1. At the beginning of Week TWO we will have our first 60-minute video meeting. During that time I will ask you to state again the intent for your release work, which might have already changed and deepened due to our email correspondence. I will go over your family history with you and will explain the programming you inherited from your family system. I will show you how this and other programming create your personal self-identity. What else will happen during our first video meeting I cannot tell you because each process is directed via intuitive guidance and geared toward each individual person’s best possible outcome.
2. During Week TWO, we will remain in email contact as needed for you to integrate the information that was presented during our video meeting.
1. At the beginning of Week THREE, we will have our second video meeting, which will last around 60 minutes. I am unable to describe what will happen during this meeting since our time together is intuitively guided to assist your Liberation Process in the best possible way. But we will have released your programming during our first video meeting, or at least started the process. We might continue with the releasing process during this meeting, or we might begin with the integration process.
2. During Week THREE, we will remain in email contact as needed for you to integrate the information that was presented during our video meeting.
1. At the beginning of Week FOUR, we will have our third video meeting, which will last around 60 minutes. Again, I cannot describe what will happen during this meeting since we will be intuitively guided to assist you becoming free of your programming. We will continue with the integration process of releasing any left over programming that still needs to be addressed.
2. During Week FOUR, we will remain in email contact as needed for you to integrate the information that was presented during our video meeting.
3. At the end of Week FOUR, we will have our fourth and final video meeting, which will last around 60 minutes. We will bring our four-week time together to a close. We will make sure that you have well integrated all the release work that has been facilitated for you so that freedom from your programming will have established itself.
Does your program really work?
Yes! The results of my work are multifold. Please visit the Client Testimonial Page on my website via this link: http://www.margotridler.com/testimonials.html.
What results can I expect?
You can expect to:
• Have big breakthroughs and Aha! moments
• Understand how your personal self functions and how this programmed self keeps joy, aliveness, peace and freedom away from you
• Experience calm, peace and freedom where you had felt stuck and trapped before
• Feel that a whole new way of life is opening up for you
• See and experience yourself in a much more expanded, free and more alive manner
• No longer operate from the same mindset and emotional reactivity - they have miraculously disappeared
• Gain enormous trust in life to guide you in the most perfect way
• Feel solid and grounded in your powerful Essence
• Know how to differentiate between the voice of your programmed self and the voice of your powerful Essence
• Opportunities that hadn’t existed before show suddenly up on your doorstep
• Sense that possibilities are available to you now that you could not conceive of before
What have your past clients said about your work?
Please visit the Client Testimonial Page on my website via this link: http://www.margotridler.com/testimonials.html.
How quickly can I expect results?
The results will most likely have been fully anchored in by the end of the one-month program. But changes, openings and releases toward freedom will have only begun. You can expect changes to continue for at least two years, maybe even longer. The changes and releases will appear in your life effortlessly, completely on their own and organically. It will not even occur to you to link future changes with our work. You can expect that your internal and external freedom will continue to grow, new ways of expressing yourself will continue to surface, new opportunities will come your way and you will continue to feel your previous restrictions to loosen and disappear. (This happens all the time!)
Margot, based on everything I’ve read and heard about you, I know you’re the one with whom I want to work. What are my options for getting started with you?
Congratulations on deciding towards True Freedom, towards freeing your true, powerful Essence, and toward understanding how life really works. Currently, there is one way you can work with me. It’s the online signature program Recover Your Powerful Essence™ – Release all your generational blocks and past programming with Trans-Generational Healing. I have created this program for people like you who you want to live their life from their powerful Essence and no longer from their inherited, automatic and habitual programming. My signature program has assisted my clients to release their often lifelong programming within one month.
OK, I’m ready to do this for myself, but I have a few additional questions.
Wonderful. Sounds like you are ready to begin the discovery of a lifetime! Yes, if you have a few questions I’d be happy to answer them during our thirty-minute Introductory Call. Please reply to this email to set up our video meeting so that we can meet and discuss details. During the call I’ll know intuitively if the one-month signature program is a good fit for you. This call is also set up so that you can be one hundred percent certain that I am the right person for you to work with, and that my signature program is right for you.
Thank you for your interest in my work. I look forward hearing back from you.
