10 Books of This Empowering Work "In the Footsteps of the Faith Master"

The FourFold Way


The Philosophy and Practices of the Society of the Faith Master

The Society of the Faith Master is our optional non-secular gratitude outreach. Gratitude is the Survival Lightkey for us all, empowerment for all, whether you have a religious belief or do not have any such beliefs. All are acceptable in the gratitude immersion world we are building, with those who are willing to live their lives with gratitude.

This society is for those who seek the religious dimension of faith and gratitude. We have a strong dogma or code of belief in the inherent goodness of our species and its future as spiritual beings. Our society is designed to be a high energy place, a happy place, based on building self-esteem, gratitude, praise and faith.

The purpose of our worship services and classes is to enhance the quality of life of our members and to help our members develop community, structure, meaning and a superordinate goal. That means helping our members develop faith, building their self-esteem, teaching them how to use the Gratitude Law of Attraction, and giving them the other teachings of the society such as communication skills, entrepreneurial skills and others.

The Spiritual Path of Gratitude Healing Discipline is an 11-level mastery program, offered online and onsite in south Florida. This landmark program serves as your guideline to developing a successful potentiated life through gratitude immersion. It is also the path to becoming a Spiritual Path of Gratitude Healing Coach (Emissary).

There are many people who are troubled and just don't feel right about their lives. They often feel like they are throwing away their lives, not reaching their potential. They are not finding the friendships they deserve and need, not developing meaningful love relationships, having poor success in school, work and life, not being able to speak up and stand up for their rights, throwing away their lives on drugs and alcohol, spending hours watching meaningless TV programs, playing video games, throwing away the tremendous powers they have been given to them, all because they do not believe in themselves.

Because they have low self-esteem, they don't get the promotions they deserve; they don't move up the ladder; they don't have the kind of success they have the capabilities to have; they don't create the kind of potentiated life they want, and they suffer day and night with a deep inner sense of unhappiness and emptiness.

Each energy sharing session with Noble Mama Carol releases your spirit within, opens you into seeing that within you are the answers to these important questions:

Creating your own successful potentiated life by learning the basic skills of
personal self-esteem building, building self-esteem in others which develops
Self-Esteem Propagation for both of you, and bonding and linking

Answering the important questions you need answered before you can create a fulfilling satisfied life.

Discovering the power of your mind to create faith in yourself and imprint this faith into your subconscious mind which brings to you what you desire in the most practical procedure possible.

How is self-esteem gained and lost?

Why are you the most important person in your world?

How does self-esteem destruction take place?

How can I start to build my personal self-esteem today?

Why did my parents and teachers try to make me feel bad about myself?

Why do people at work keep trying to make me feel bad?

Don't expect others to do the right thing; look for them to try to bring you back down to their level once you start to grow and potentiate.

There's still more! You'll also find out how to:

Discover ways to find others who want to live upbeat, positive, self-esteem building lives.

General information -

IGEI is a Social Enterprise Corporation

Our Mantra - Always Be Grateful! Always!

The International Gratitude Empowerment Institute  (IGEI) is a social enterprise corporation that has social benefit purposes. The International Gratitude Empowerment Institute (IGEI) sells products and services for creating a gratitude immersion world. In addition to our profit motive, we are creating a gratitude immersion worldwide community based on the Way of Success through Gratitude.

The Way of Success through Gratitude includes these gratitude components:

  • Gratitude Healing Ways

  • Gratitude In Business

  • Gratitude & Spiritual Healing

  • Gratitude Communication Skills

  • Earth Gratitude

  • Society of the Faith Master

In addition to our profit motive, it is a social purpose corporation with these additional social benefits and goals:


1) Community: To create and provide an environment for low and middle income people to learn how to work together positively by teaching personal self-esteem building and how to build self-esteem in others, thus developing a community based on faith and gratitude resulting in a gratitude immersion culture.


2) Youth: To empower girls and women through special programs including sports and entertainment projects for self-esteem building and character development. To enable them to have a superordinate goal of giving to the world with no expectation of personal return such as tree planting projects to fight climate change. To use gratitude in sports to give strength to women and girls to heal from sexual abuse and domestic abuse.


3) Entrepreneurship: Develop social entrepreneurship projects through micro-financing of small and medium-sized enterprises including entrepreneurial training programs.


4) Technology: To teach skills to minorities, women and youth to become Mobile Entrepreneurs through technologies such as Skype, webinars and podcasts anywhere in the world. Today’s entrepreneur needs to master these skills even if they have a brick and mortar outlet for their business. We will teach them how they can use these new technologies to build their business.


5) Spiritual Development: Through our self-esteem building programs we will increase personal fulfillment, enable people to create peaceful loving relationships. When we build self-esteem, we build a person's spirit. Spiritual development is the key to bringing us all together to work and live together in a peaceful world. Spiritual development in our workforce makes people want to be productive, to be creative and to give their loyalty to each other and their employers. Without spiritual development it is difficult for people to lead productive, happy lives.


6):  Spiritual Therapy Programs: Many people understand how important it is to build the self-esteem of young people and working age people. But many people don't understand the needs of the Elderly, Disabled and Wheelchair Rider populations. Some see them as unimportant or nonproductive. But many people don't understand how they feel and the benefits we all can gain from them. The fact is, in the IGEI Gratitude Immersion World, we understand that these populations have a great deal to offer. The fact is they have much they can learn, much to feel, and much to share which can help us understand gratitude in many ways.


There are many stories of people who are not in wheelchairs but are bedridden, who make their families' lives happy by their cheerful, loving, giving, and self-esteem building personalities. Everyone has something to give. But the fact is, no one can give from an empty dish. No matter where you live there are others around you who need positive energy. How do we give them a way to build their own self-esteem so they can give to their world?


Through spiritual therapy you will learn how to use gratitude as a power to build your own self-esteem and reach out into the world to give to others. One way is by being in the outdoors, fishing and being close to nature where you rebuild your wholeness. By creating intergenerational volunteer programs you practice the gratitude skills you are learning. We share with them the spiritual therapy programs of IGEI.


Spiritual Therapy is a spiritual healing method that focuses on the rebuilding of inner wholeness. Techniques include gratitude practices, self-esteem building, meditation, affirmations, and reprogramming your subconscious mind. These techniques are based on repetitive actions and interactions, building new connections in your brain, to help yourself and others to grow, become more creative and develop spiritual health. Rebuilding your self-esteem is a vital part of spiritual therapy because high self-esteem is the basis of wholeness.


Spiritual therapy is best performed in nature because in nature you are able to reconnect with Mother Earth, become grounded and feel the energy around us. Our original way of life was immersed in the natural world. Once cities formed when agriculture developed, the clearings of civilization through the development of urbanization separated us from our connection with the earth. Spiritual therapy through fishing is designed to reestablish that connection.  Water Gratitude includes fishing as an important ecospiritual component of IGEI. Fishing teaches people to hope, to keep trying over and over again.
