Dear Sweet, Loving, Power-filled Soul Sis Luz…

A Happy Birthday wish for your Happy Birthday week! Apologies for being a day late…been in the thick of moving my an ‘adopted Alzheimer’s mama’ of an ex-boyfriend into a new care-center, and haven’t been on FB for a few days.

Suffice it to say, Luz, that you are on my “Top 10 List of Love & Power-filled Women Role Models”. You delightfully epitomize a woman who seamlessly blends ‘spirituality’ with Divine power and fun humor…a far cry from the dour, pious saint of yester-century!

A new breed of spiritual personification is permeating our present century, and she wears a huuuuuuuuge smile! Thanks so much for being one of her faces!

You are so loved, appreciated and admired, Luz, and I thank the Divine for the blessed day of your birth! Have a luverly, light-filled next year of human experience and leading-light, sweet friend.

Luz,

When you called this past weekend, I was completely disturbed over my close rate. I have been teaching prospects a new money management method in an effort to have them hire me as their consultant. At the end, the prospects always thank me for the informative presentation but never hired me!

When we spoke, we talked about some of the background of what I am doing. Then during our discussion, you told me that I was not making a personal connection with the client. I took your comment and thought about it.

I generated a page of questions set in a non-confrontational form and I am talking more to my prospects not just presenting my ideas. So, now… caring, thoughtful questions seem to be bringing me to the point where I don’t have to work at building true – true just happens. From here, only time will tell how well I do, but I do feel a lot more comfortable about how I present my information and the interaction with the prospect.

Thank You,

Bruce Chantra

I am just writing to tell you how impressed I am with Ari’s program and that
I am benefiting immensely from it.
I especially want to single out Luz Aguirrebena. I’ve only spent a couple
sessions with her on the mindset chat forums but can say that these two
hours have been worth the price of the entire system. Her suggestions and
coaching have adjusted my approach to one of a much more confident, calm,
and serving cold caller.

Luz is a true jewel: compassionate, direct, loving, and ever so
knowledgeable.

Give that woman a raise! Based just on my experience with her (not to
mention everything else I’ve received) will make me a willing and
enthusiastic referrer to your company.

A very satisfied customer,
Terrance Collins Unlock the Game Member, Colombia

Hey Luz-

I met you at the right time in my life. I felt I had the right puzzle’s pieces but I couldn’t find the matching pieces to put the puzzle together on my own.

Your soft touch and gentle suggestions helped me put my puzzle together. I enjoyed working with you on solving my sticking points in putting the pieces together. Through your suggestions- You have given me clever ways to use words and communicate with my customers.

Once we began working together, I noticed my confidence increased and so did my ability to communicate more effectively. I am so glad that you are in my life. I look forward to working with you in the years to come. I am glad that you are on my team.

If I have issues in my life, now “we” can work together on my sticking points and I am not just stuck on my own. I appreciate you for your help. Your efforts helped me discover the missing pieces in my puzzle and now I know where to go when I am missing a piece in my puzzle. I have a partner in business.

Thanks

Hi Luz,

I just wanted to share a story with you (I also shared this with Jonathan) regarding a little revelation that I had over the weekend.

I was thinking about you over the weekend and about how passionate you are about what you do. I truly believe that you are a success because you have taken your passion and made it your life. When I was thinking about what I do, I asked myself if I was passionate about insurance and financial services…after a short time I decided that the answer was NO. Needless to say this really disturbed me. Why am I doing this if it is not my passion? Well slightly distraught, I happened to read over the conversation map that Jonathan sent to us, when a light bulb flicked on in my head. The products that I sell are not what I am passionate about because they don’t have to be…just like a guy who sells pizza ovens is probably not passionate about a chunk of metal that heats up and cooks your pizza. These things that I sell, insurance, financial products etc. and the knowledge that I have are nothing more than the tools that I have been given that allow me to pursue my real passion, HELPING PEOPLE! We have all been given different experiences, skills, and knowledge that allow us all to help people in different ways, THAT is the important thing!

As Jonathan said in his email, “Success is built on helping others.” This could not be any closer to the truth! I need to get my mind away from WHAT I am selling, and move it toward WHY I am selling it…and that reason is to help people make their lives better in the only way I know how.

I don’t know if this makes any sense to you, but it really hit me this weekend and I am going to do everything in my power to make sure that everyone I talk to from now on knows why I do what I do…

Thank you Luz

Luz has been instrumental in guiding me through my crippling call reluctance and helping
me focus on the quality of life of which I am entitled. By focusing on acknowledging my
reluctance we were able to put together a plan to overcome this now viewed “small” problem.
Also, changing my mindset of what my objective of the call is, to develop a conversation,
and working to find the best opening statements, my reluctance has diminished greatly.
I look forward to working with Luz into the future to the point where I call with ease and have
the greatest response attainable. Luz will be my cold calling coach going into the future.

  • My hour-long session with Luz in July 2008 was helpful because she helped me identify, by name, the lessons I have been learning through a current life transition.
  • The session specifically helped me to be clear about what I have learned, and know now, and what I still might want to learn and how I will know that I know it.
  • By having a session with Luz I feel like a had a breakthrough in understanding and I got clarity about why I did what I did, and what I can do differently.
  • From meeting with Luz I know that I know what I am looking for and where to find it, and where not to find it!
  • What was most exciting about our time together was that Luz is an acute listener and clearly articulates what can be difficult and nebulous ideas or theories in a way that I could understand and take away with me.
  • Anyone who senses that he or she has some kind of barrier or confusion around an issue would benefit from a session with Luz who quickly and painlessly escorts you through the Mystery in which you find yourself, shows you the highlights and helps you move on.

  • I have known Luz Aguirrebeña for close to 20 years and have always admired her ability to find common ground where none seems to exist, create harmony among disparate positions and views, encourage individuals and teams through tough times and sell ideas and advertising when it seemed impossible to do so.
  • She is patient and empathetic when necessary and yet truthful, honest and incisive when the moment demands it. During her time as Associate Publisher of our newspaper she was able to keep a creative and passionate staff functioning smoothly and repair hard feelings and conflicts. In moments of despair she is cool and always touches the soul and when bright, sunny times reappear she is ‘in the present’ and reminds those around her of the joy and fullness of life.
  • Luz is a keen and perceptive coach, an honest partner and resilient manager. She is ably and ideally suited to focus her cohorts and clients on the important things in business, in a relationship, in life and in our hearts. She is valued and cherished by those around her as a person full of love, sympathy, concern and a practical nature that values simple, compassionate, common sense based solutions to the most intimate wrenching problems we face. I know this because she helped me through difficult and daunting times.
  • I recommend Ms. Aguirrebeña to anyone who needs to focus their time and energy on how to be successful in business and in life, how to reach out effectively to the people around you and how to glide past what seem like the insurmountable obstacles in life. This unique and joyous individual is an undeniable asset to anyone who needs to lift the veil of low self esteem, negative thinking or addiction to failure. These maladies are anathema to Ms. Aguirrebeña and she is a very effective antidote to them.

  • I am very thankful for everything you did for me during my divorce. It was difficult and painful to accept. You taught me how to express my emotions without drama.
  • How to set boundaries to others.
  • To build a bridge between the irrational and the rational.
  • I learned throughout all this process, to say NO. A word so difficult to pronounce for me at that time.
  • It’s been already 10 years since you worked with me and now my life is full of harmony surrounded by people who respect me and love me.

For all that I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

When I think about Luz’s psycho-spiritual abilities, the word “wellspring” immediately comes to mind.

But first, let me say that Luz has been one of my best friends for over a decade and one of my favorite people in the world since five minutes after I met her. She’s creative, intellectually active and a lot of fun to be with — so it’s very mentally stimulating and exciting to spend time with her.

And so I’m amazed that, in one way, it is for the very opposite reason that I’m in awe of her abilities and effect as a counselor or coach. When Luz articulates her insights about psychological or spiritual concepts that I’m already familiar with, she does it with such a lightness and a clarity that these concepts become new for me and, somewhat ironically, bring on a relieving stillness. Following her train of thought has often enabled the transformation in me that I was struggling for but could barely imagine. It’s very much like Dante describes the effect Beatrice has on him in The Paradiso. Without any emotional or intellectual struggle or physical sensation, by following Luz’s train of thought, my perception of the world and myself is suddenly . . . different. . . . and easier.

It just happened recently. I occasionally have to do some public speaking on my job and I generally hate it. Because I work as a government watchdog, when I’m speaking publicly about facts that others are not acknowledging, I have tended to assume I’m faced with strenuous resistance. I have often subconsciously projected my parents onto the audience (yes, cliché but true) and then a stubborn resolve, even a compulsion wells up, to make them “face the truth”. And each time, afterwards, I’d feel drained and so disappointed with myself that I didn’t detach from a historical dynamic so that I could fully engage in the present. Two nights before I had to speak recently, Luz read me some of her ideas about the “self” in the present, and having that self identify the goal for all of the historic and imagined other impulses that weigh in. Listening to Luz’s description immediately clicked for me, and I had no struggle the day I spoke.
Although there were technical difficulties (which normally would have rattled me) and a number of challenges to my presentation, nothing caused intense feelings or anxiety – I simply stated the facts as I knew them and moved on. And no mulling over it afterwards. . . remarkable.

On several occasions over the past few years, I opened a discussion with Luz when I’ve been struggling very hard in one of the most significant areas of my life – for example, problems with work or a relationship. I’d be having ideas about myself or others that I’d barely want to admit to myself let alone say to another person (generally, because they don’t square with the ideas I have or like to have about myself) . By that point, the fear, shame, anger and/or pain were so palpable that the prospect of action and non-action seemed equally horrible. Despite how gnarly and messy my life seemed at those moments, I’ve always been surprised that there is never a flicker of anything coming from Luz , but complete and comfortable acceptance. It is so healing when I see that she is hearing everything I’m saying and yet is relaxed and we start talking about the situation in a non-stressful manner.

Luz has a concept of discovering the perfection in your errors. In discussing a situation with her, the “error” somehow ends up operating as a springboard for imagining and moving into a fresh, new perspective. Soon the beneficial change is no longer theoretical or barely conceivable; instead, it feels more and more imminent and exciting and the error just disintegrates into the fertilizer that it is.

So, to get back to the wellspring idea. Although these situations have occurred with Luz a number of times and we’ve been discussing such things for years, I keep waiting for her to hit her limit, to max out, and to come to the discussion with pat answers and theories. And it just doesn’t happen. Each time she counsels with me, its fresh, completely in the present, and I always end up, with hope, on the threshold of a beckoning future. It’s been going on for quite some time and so I’m in awe. There is something special going on for Luz. It’s like she has tapped into some very deep and wise source of inspiration and information. It’s weird and cool and wonderful.

Esa conexión con la vida que se logra hablando contigo es una sensación maravillosa!…el tiempo se detiene y un minuto puede parecer una eternidad…Difícil expresarlo en palabras…Tienes un don para conectar a la otra persona con su ser más profundo y revivir situaciones que llegan a aclarar temas del pasado y colocarlos en un sitio más sano y equilibrado en nuestras vidas.

Mi experiencia personal a tu lado ha sido muy fuerte y creo que me has regalado muchas herramientas para trabajar en mi crecimiento personal!!! Eso no quiere decir que esté todo hecho…no, por supuesto todo lo contrario…Aún me queda mucho por aprender, crecer, ser mejor persona, y tú me has motivado a no quedarme con los logros obtenidos…siempre se puede dar un paso más. Gracias!!!

That connection with life that one achieves conversing with you is a wonderful feeling!…times stops and one minute becomes an eternity…Difficult to express it in words…You have a gift to connect the other person with with his or her most profound being and revive situations that come back to clarify themes of the past and and position them back in a more balanced and sane place in our lives.

My personal experience by your side has been very strong and I believe you have given me many tools to work in my personal development!!! That doesn’t mean it’s all done…no, of course, on the contrary…There is still a long way to learn, grow, be a better person, and you have motivated me to not be satisfied with the obtained achievements…one always can make one more step. Thank you!!!

  • What an honor it is to share the gift of my knowledge about Luz. In her current work she finally has put a professional context on her calling. She has been pursuing it within her family and community for over two decades, in a way that no one else could. She has made a difference in all the lives she touches, because she has been the navigator for those around her to be true to themselves.
  • I speak from experience. First, Luz is an unsurpassed friend. For twenty years we have raised our children together, still share holidays and family vacations, supported each other in divorces, and come to know each other through life challenges we never could have predicted. Second, professionally I am a lawyer for whistleblowers, those employees who use free speech rights to challenge abuses of power that betray the public trust. In that role, my first and primary duty throughout is helping people to be true to themselves.
  • To me, Luz’s path to that goal has two stages. First, she insists that self-honesty is the foundation for being true to ourselves. She is intolerant of denial, passive aggression, rationalizations and other self-deception. In cutting through BS, Luzma can be a spiritual tough love drill sergeant.
  • Second, she teaches that the mistakes we get to know through self-honesty are our most precious resource. By not avoiding our mistakes we get the chance to learn about ourselves, since we then have the chance to understand and address the causes for choices that backfired in retrospect. That is the key to personal growth. Honestly confronting and understanding the consequences translates that growth into lessons learned, so that we don’t keep making the same mistakes over and over. Luz also does not cut any slack for human broken records who keep repeating their mistakes.
  • Like all humans, Luz has oodles of flaws. But what is unique is that she will be grateful if you tell her about them. Because she lives her coaching strategy, Luz turns her mistakes into opportunities. Her search is to find and learn from the perfection of our errors, and that is the essence of her contribution. Sometimes it has seemed like the bigger the mistake, the greater the payoff. Anyone looking for a sage guru will be disappointed working with Luz. What she has to offer is the wisdom described above, taught with uncompromising passion and a love for her calling. I congratulate any others who are lucky enough to experience her energy.

I’ve known Luzma as long as I’ve known my self. She penetrates my earliest memories, and my most recent. She has always been a backbone for my family, as well as her own.

My brother and I used to have sleepovers at her house, when my parents were going through difficult times. I don’t know if she realizes, but it was Luzma who helped me get through a lot of those times. Even as a young girl, she spoke to me with respect—the same way adults would address each other. She did not sugarcoat anything, but told things as they were. Different from the school therapists who were trained to assure me that, while divorces are difficult, everything will be okay. Luzma taught me the facts of life: Yes, divorces are difficult, and more hardships will arise that I cannot control. What I can control is my mentality, and how I approach each situation. With what mentality would I approach their divorce? Rather than staying in an unhappy marriage, my parents could focus their energy into effective parenting, as well as their friendship. Which they did, often with Luzma’s guidance.

She was never an advocate for simply one parent. Rather, she consistently offered honest and sound insights to both. Sometimes brutally honest, which is one of the things I admire most about Luzma. It reflects her true colors – honesty, audacity and confidence, all of which she wears on her sleeve. Luzma has never compromised her own nature in order to comfort those around her. And this is a gift for anyone opened to exploring their own potential. I’ve observed Luzma for years in the presence of new people—whether at a dinner party or the beach or my graduation. Somehow she strikes up the most intimate dialogues with perfect strangers, and within minutes their conversation is so engaged that the word stranger looses all meaning. More often than not they will end up sharing their most recent life obstacle with her, in which case she provides a refreshingly new perspective for them to see it as not an obstacle, but an opportunity for growth.

Luzma’s ability to attract strangers and friends to open up to her could be seen as a blessing or a course. She has never expressed resentment toward it, and I think that is in part due to the natural boundaries of her gift. Just as Luzma does not force her advice, she does not force limitations on it. I’ve known Luzma my whole life, and I still seek her out for a dose of reality, paired with healthy coping mechanisms. However, it is in large part thanks to Luzma that I do not constantly seek out advice—but rather, nurture my own mentality. To receive coaching from Luzma (as my whole family does, unconsciously much of the time) is a packaged deal, which I now understand as the “50/50”. From my earliest memories of Luzma’s guidance, to my most recent, she has always been confident in her insights, but equally confident in my ability to determine what I need. I’ve known Luzma as long as I’ve known myself because she has taught me how to learn and embrace who I am.

I could think of no better way for Luzma to spend her time than as a life coach. She has always provoked a natural exchange, often by those who are in need of support most but unlikely to share it with friends or family. By Luzma being so sure in her own skin, the apprehensive gravitate toward her and they too lose all inhibition—I’ve seen it! If given the opportunity to expand her coaching, she will help countless more people reach their potential.
