Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"By the time you finish this book, there will be nothing holding you back." — from the Introduction

Most people have a vision for their lives that they're not pursuing, half-heartedly pursuing, or pursuing with all their might yet somehow falling short. This vision can be modest or grand. It may involve breaking free of a destructive habit or finding a truly healthy relationship. It might have to do with making a real difference in the world or helping to lead a company to extraordinary success. In The One Thing Holding You Back, Raphael Cushnir, a leading voice in the world of personal and professional development, reveals that whenever people aren't living their dreams it's because they're not yet willing and able to feel specific emotions related to those dreams. Once we access and understand these emotions, our dreams can and will come true.

Cushnir asserts that mere emotional awareness, commonly referred to as emotional intelligence, is not enough. For maximum benefit we must directly and consistently connect with our emotions. In particular, we need to connect with the emotions we routinely avoid, resist, or attempt to dismiss. It's these emotions that possess the key to our greatest goals. And learning to connect with them is another rarely taught but essential skill.

The One Thing Holding You Back provides real solutions that can be implemented immediately and without external support and includes true stories of people who have put Cushnir's process to work and transformed their lives. Delivering a step-by-step program in accessible language, this landmark book will turn the obstacles in front of us into tremendous opportunities for achieving the life we always wanted.

Review:

"Cushnir (Unconditional Bliss) introduces fascinating and iconoclastic ideas about health and healing in this book, which argues that 'emotions are physical. Our bodies are the only places they can ever be found.' The author, a spiritual teacher, suggests treating depressions, addictions and compulsions by identifying uncomfortable physical sensations in the body as roots of suppressed emotions. His process — 'finding the flinch' — allows people to acknowledge and connect to internal sadness, fear or anger ('whenever emotions are shunned or considered inappropriate, they rule most forcefully behind the scenes'), slow down and allow the feelings to arise and depart. What remains is a softer, expansive frame of mind where one can identify deeper patterns or unearth old stories without any resistance. Emotions 'don't need to be felt forever, or obsessively, but just long enough to have their say,' contends Cushnir, who fleshes out his 'core concepts' with a welcome abundance of profiles; case studies of using his techniques to quit everything from cigarettes to sexual addiction, and practical tips and exercises." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Cushnir's genius lies in his compilation of easy-to-follow principles, highlighted core concepts, and key refinements." Library Journal

Description:

A groundbreaking program that teaches you how to access the power of your emotions and transform your life.

We often try to either dissipate or hold back emotions. This book shows us how to really feel them and the wisdom within them. It is by connecting with ourselves through our emotions that we come home. This is a wonderful book.

I so look forward to reading this book after hearing Raphael being interviewed by Michael Toms on "New Dimensions". The interview is still available by podcast at newdimensions.org- highly recommend it if you are feeling stuck or if you have ever wondered why your emotions seem to get the best of you when "cooler heads" should prevail. I know it will give me the tools I need to get on with life and to make the changes to a more fulfilling life.
