Hi! Soren Lauritzen, the Personal Development Guy, here.
Let me tell you a bit about myself.
Brief Background Info
Soren is a Danish man’s name, and I live in the
Danish capital of Copenhagen. (Denmark is a small Scandinavian country south of
Sweden and Norway and north of Germany). Danish society is kind of neat, cute
really, and apart from the dark and occasionally cold, snowy wintertime,
Denmark's a great place to live.
What I Do
Today I work as a
coach/counsellor/guide in consciousness [LINK], healer [LINK], teacher and
I call myself the Personal Development Guy, and that's
because I combine personal development
, self improvement [LINK] and spirituality
[LINK] with both:
a) A theoretical framework at the cutting edge of
psychology, coaching and spirituality
b) A great sense of
love, acceptance, inner peace, joy, playfulness and fun.
Background: A Normal Life
I haven't always been the Personal Development Guy.
Many years ago I lived a fairly standard life. After I graduated as a
Business Administration (MBA)
I used to get up in the morning and drive a
bicycle for around half an hour to get to work (in Copenhagen lots of people
drive bicycles - not as many people as in Beijing, China, but still a large
percentage of the population).
I used to work with project management and
then, over the years, I gradually drifted towards executive coaching.
That was actually quite a few years before the word 'coaching' even reached
Denmark, so we didn't call it coaching, we called it 'sparring'. I became a
sparring partner for the management of the media company where I worked. This
was probably the beginning of 'the Personal Development Guy'.
At the time
my primary hobby was writing fiction. So I wrote several novels and had them
published. That was kind of fun. (They haven't been translated into English yet,
but that might happen someday - you can see them on the Danish website of
- please note that the text there is in Danish).
there I was, going about my business, when suddenly, BAM! something happened.
Actually it was more like BAM! ... pause ... BAM! ... pause ...
What Happened? Wild Things!
What happened was this: I
had spontaneous experiences with clairvoyance (BAM!) and
healing (BAM!). At the time those two words were NOT a part of
my vocabulary. I had no relation to them what so ever.
Since other people witnessed (and participated in) my strange
and powerful experiences I couldn't really deny them. ("What?
I'm clairvoyant?" Yeah, obviously. "WHAT? I can do healing?"
Yep, no doubt about it!)
So, I concluded that my view
of the world was too limited and decided to see what I had
been missing out on.
And that's where the
BAMALAMA-DING-DONG! enters the picture.
Improvement, Personal Development and Spirituality

personal development. I really
started becoming the Personal

process was wild. If you read about yogis and such persons who
do a lot of personal development, have groundbreaking insights
and discover that they can do weird things that are NOT part
of what is considered 'normal' well, that's pretty much my
If I tell you about the things I've experienced
there's a good chance you'll decide that I'm a whacko and
lying through my teeth. And a whacko I might be, but I've
discovered that total honesty is much, much more powerful that
the alternative, so I do not lie. Instead I just keep quiet.
Surrender, Relaxation, Intuition and Flow

that you don't get caught up in all the funny things that you
discover you can do, but simply move on in your personal
development. I agree. There's always more

A few things that have to do with
consciousness, healing and some energetically based things to
do with my physical body I still use on a regular basis. But
most of the things I tried, experienced and discovered that I
can do I don't really use today. They are simply there as
What I do use today is what you might
call intuition. You might also call it something like
surrender of the ego. Or: Trusting my soul and life itself.
That's the most powerful thing I know,
because it utilizes all available resources (including the
'wild' possibilities) and often produces what might be called
In actuality, though, those miracles are
simply things falling into their natural and perfect place
when resistance is removed.
Like I said, the most intense part of the process that lead to
me becoming the Personal Development Guy lasted about 7 years
(it's an ongoing process, of course).
At some point it
all came together. On an 'inner journey' (exploration of
consciousness), I experienced what I call Home (my core or
soul identity) and later I experienced total unity with
everything in existence. I chose to let these experiences
transform myself and my life.
Things that I had taken
for granted (thoughts, habits, beliefs, etc.) fell apart; and
in the clear light of absolute reality [LINK] everything
sudden fell into place.
The main point? Everything ...
you, me and all of life ... is a unified whole
between 3 and 6 months these experiences affected every waking
moment of my life in what was mostly an extremely pleasant
way. (It could a bit disconcerting at times when it totally
clashed with the prevalent mindset of my surroundings).
Actually now, years later, these experiences still affect
every moment of my life, even if it's in a more quiet way.
Coming 'Home' - on Demand
The inner condition I
call Home (or soul identity) is such a great experience. It's
where our consciousness belongs. It's inner peace,
spaciousness, joy and unconditional love.
That's why I
decided to find a method that would help myself and others
return Home at will.
I tried many different techniques
and approaches, most of which didn't work too well on me, and
thus I ended up developing
the Let Go Method
which is a simple
and reliable means of returning Home. The Let Go Method also
has a powerful capacity to heal and transform.
think of it, it's probably quite fitting, too, that someone
who calls himself the Personal Development Guy should have
developed his own methods. I have developed several, of which
I consider the Let Go Method the most prominent.
Developing a Coherent Theory
Furthermore, being a bit of a
thinker (and writer), I also wanted to describe in words how
it all fits together. (Also quite fitting for 'the Personal
So, I spent several years developing

come to be known as 'Notes from Life Itself to You' and is an
integral part of those books. You can also see some examples
of those Notes from Life on this website [LINK].
Becoming Self Employed
At some point along the way I
realized that having a paid job was holding me back. So I quit
my old job and became self employed as a coach/guide/counsellor,
writer and teacher: the Personal Development Guy.
I decided to take my messages to the international scene via
books, special reports and websites I carefully studied the
market for webhosting and learning how to build an e-business.
Site Build It (Sitesell, Inc.), also called SBI was by far
the best alternative out there.
So I settled on the
moniker 'the Personal Development Guy' and bought my first SBI
website (this one, thePersonalDevelopmentGuy.com). I haven't
looked back since. Building a combination of a great
information website and a profitable e-business is pretty hard
and challenging work, there's lots to learn and lots to do,
but it's also great fun and I love it.
recommend SBI to anyone who has a serious intention of
building a profitable e-business. If that's you, you can click
this link to
the 'regular' SBI info page
or this link to
special SBI info page about Content 2.0
- a special and
powerful feature that's unique to SBI - it allows you to build
your own little FaceBook, Twitter, LinkedIn, MySpace, etc.
Note, though, that although those are two different info
pages, you get Content 2.0 with your SBI no matter what (you
don't have to use it, of course).
How I Work
Basically, as the Personal Development Guy, I combine personal
development and spirituality with a sense of playfulness and
fun. I work from a place of great experience, powerful
knowledge and total acceptance. I have a deep respect for
everybody, but truly there is no reason whatsoever to take
anything TOO seriously. And that certainly includes myself.
