“When you are going through hell, keep going.” ~ Winston Churchill
Bulletproof Spirit is a vital resource to keep you going when you’re in the midst of your own “hell.” This book offers valuable guidance that will help you get through your darkest days and into the new “normal” that eventually emerges out of trauma. “Bounce Back Boot Camp” at the end of each chapter provides practical step-by-step actions to reinforce the chapter’s lesson and to move you forward gently and steadily.
Two points in particular resonated for me:
1. In our society, we do not know how to grieve well. The grieving process is important for all kinds of hits, large and small. Secret #8, Grieve Like a Guru, is worth the price of the book, even if you read nothing else.
2. The authors explain the value of forgiveness better than anything I’ve read. Reframing forgiveness, as an indulgence I deserve rather an obligation to someone else, was a completely new perspective. Secret #14, The Real Meaning of the F Word, has several other ideas that make forgiveness a powerful tool for current and past losses.
The authors have each faced devastating losses. They briefly mention their own challenges in this book, but keep the content focused on providing steps for the rest of us to keep going through our own “hits” and to the other side. They each, separately, determined to rise above their pain and to help others do the same, and Bulletproof Spirit is a shining example of their success.
No matter how old you are, if you ever felt like you were born into the wrong place, the wrong family, or the wrong body, I highly recommend INDIGO AWAKENING. It will inspire you to recognize that your childhood challenges of not fitting in may have to do with your being an “indigo” – a child who has come into this world with special qualities of enlightenment and often special challenges to overcome.
The forward by Christine Page, MD, succinctly explains this story as about one Indigo’s challenge to be successful in a world that neither recognizes nor necessarily supports her gifts. Once I could put the book into a familiar context, I was hooked! I read the entire book in one sitting.
The author, now a successful osteopathic physician describes the torment of her early school years, from teachers that cruelly belittled her in front of the entire class, to needing to study long hours to compensate for undiagnosed dyslexia, to the hateful taunts of other children at recess.
All these experiences increased her sense of isolation and caused her to shut down emotionally, moving her farther away from her innate gifts of being able to see energies and auras, unusual artistic and healing talents, and accessing past life memories. Eventually, she learns to utilize her gifts to enhance her life and her practice as well.
This book offers insight and understanding of Indigo children, no matter when they were born. I enjoyed this book so much that I bought two additional copies for friends.
