“Authentic living means having the strength and the courage to remain true to yourself.” Pg.14
The statement speaks the truth as both will be challenged many times throughout your life. The fact that you are interested in this book or any other of it’s genre is a clear sign that deep within yourself you are not fulfilled or at peace. Think of it as taking your first steps to changing your mind, therefore changing your life.
After careful and honest reflection of your past, you must accept your responsibility for your part in it, move on taking the knowledge gained from it. To begin, set up achievable goals, reach out for guidance and with a strong, positive mind begin your journey to inner peace. There are pertinent questions in the chapter ‘Effective Learning’ to guide you.
The unconscious mind controls 90% of our thoughts but can be reprogrammed through meditation, detachment, visualization and strengthening activities such as yoga. Researchers now realize that with concentrated effort we can physically change our brain, developing new pathways leading to positive experiences. Neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to reorganize its neural connections, even develop new ones. As you see the changes, you will understand that you can become a conscious creator and actually create your own reality.
“Your outer world is a direct reflection of your inner world.” pg109 If you project negativity, negative experiences follow. If you become in control of your own life in a positive manner, you will attract positive people and experiences.
Michele Doucette has been seeking out and then sharing her knowledge of both secular and spiritual levels of self- discovery for over 20 years. She has written several successful books. Living on the west coast of Newfoundland, she is not only an author but a Special Education teacher, webmaster and amateur genealogist. This fact based, well researched, documented book is a good place to start your journey to becoming empowered.
I have been traveling my own journey to empowerment. It takes time, effort and definitely education to be successful. It helps to have a support group of family, friends, educators and fortunately for me, a mentor. A Highly Recommended Read.
