Embrace and use this spiritual toolkit to navigate change with grace and positive intention.
“It is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive but those who can best manage change” – Charles Darwin
Fear of the unknown is always our first reaction to change. From our ancient past, we are programmed to run, fight or freeze. We instantly try to calculate exactly what we are about to lose in terms of our lifestyle and livelihood. It is only the being in us, the soul, who can manage change well. The gap that change opens inside us is meant to be filled by soul on its path to enlightenment.
Written by ten experts in their field of practice from their experiences, research, trials and errors, the pervading theme throughout this book is that change creates a space within us.
The question this book asks is: “How will you deal with this space?”
The voices in this book aim to help you awaken and consciously make your way through change after change, however difficult. Insight and practical tools from a range of spiritual and healing modalities have been provided so that you can take positive action to achieve inner peace during times of change and turmoil, and connect with the flow to create the life you want.
Each chapter deals with change from a different perspective, and using different tools. You can benefit from channelled guidance, breathwork, movement, yoga, sound, tarot, flower essences, colour, meditations, rituals, mindfulness, and divine transformational energy healing.
The only constant in life is change. This is not just a book to be read – it is a book that you can refer to any time you need a practical tool to help you deal with the challenges in your life. Choose a chapter or modality that appeals to you, or craft your own spiritual toolkit for creating inner peace, joy and opportunity by picking your favourite techniques and exercises from each chapter. This book offers something for everyone.
