Who Said It Has To Be Hard
In the fall of 2009, Leslie Kleiman, labor lawyer and real estate developer, commenced a journey to look at, experience and transform her fears around her ability and worthiness to create unlimited abundance while pursuing her life’s passion as an intuitive life coach and Reiki Master. The result was Who Said It Has To Be Hard? a book chronicling that journey.
Throughout the book Leslie demonstrates, with pathos and humor, how the maxim that something is only valuable if obtained through hard work or hardship is merely an outdated belief system supporting our core feelings of unworthiness.
Leslie says: " My intention is that you will use this book as a resource and as a way to validate and empower your intuition. I would love it if you would simply choose a place in the book whenever you feel the need for guidance and trust that the chapter you have chosen contains the guidance you are seeking. Reading it from cover to cover and laughing as you do so would be good too."

I found the excerpts so enjoyable that I just want to share one with you ~ from: THE FINAL ENTRY
It is 11:10 pm on Wednesday March 31, 2010, and we are very close to the end of this Journal. It was a full moon, a Libra moon, my moon, the other evening and tonight as I look out my office window, the moon is still large and bright as though it were there just for me.
I am off to sit a vigil in a few minutes and so the actual last entry in this Journal will likely be on April 1, but I wanted to start it on this side of midnight, to see what kind of magic awaits….See you when I return.
It is now April 1, 2010. It is April Fool’s Day and as I sit down to write today in some material respects I could say that nothing has changed although I feel within my body, which is the only true thing I know, that everything has changed since I began this Journal, this Journey; because I have changed.
As I am sitting here I am told that “we” have worked our way through all the chakras, opening and cleansing them, allowing them to be more receptive, you and me, to be a receptacle for more love and joy. I have to say, it certainly feels that way to me. Searching around inside myself I cannot feel or find one place that is heavy or tight or that appears or feels to be holding anything. It feels open and light and my mind is quiet. Whatever lies before me, I have this extraordinary sense of anticipation about it. The possibilities for how my life will unfold seem limitless and entirely up to me as creations for my highest benefit.
I know that I love working with people, on the radio, in individual sessions, in workshops and seminars. The connection I feel to someone when I am working with him or her and with our Source is just beyond compare and I want more of it, please.
I am so thoroughly grateful for my life, for my friends, for my family, for my bravery, for my GUIDANCE- thank you for helping me and showing me and comforting me and supporting me and allowing me to feel that I am worthy of all these gifts you have bestowed upon me-and those yet to come.
Who Said It Has To Be Hard? I did, but I truly don’t any longer. I know with every fiber of my being that it does not have to be hard, hard is a choice. And if it doesn’t HAVE to be hard for me, then it certainly doesn’t have to be hard for you. Hard is the message embedded and encoded in worthless and unlovable. I believe our path is to know our worth, at least it has been for me, and as I ask I am told that it is at least, in part, the path of all who are here at this time. By being willing to just believe that I am worthy and lovable and being willing to believe that there is support for me to find the ultimate freedom in those places, I have been blessed with support, both incarnate and disincarnate, from every part of the Galaxy (or my current understanding of that concept) that I previously found unimaginable.
I truly believe there is healing embedded in this text, because I am told there is and because my Journey is not singular or unique and because I agreed to share it with anyone choosing to share it with me for the purposes of growth and clarity.
I have remembered how much I love writing and it is a joy for me to write and to read what I have written so I will be doing much more. This Journey(al) is ended but my life is to be gloriously continued for as long as it lasts. So thank you, one and all, I honor you and all of us.
From the light and love within me to the light and love within you.
