Practical, motivating, and inspiring ways to unleash your potentialfrom one of todays most exciting spiritual teachers!
You are a masterpiece. You have everything you need right now to create your life exactly as you want it to be.
Successful people will often say that when theyre at their peak performance level, they feel a sense of some other presence with themsomething beyond themselves. That other presence seems bigger than their own talent or personality.
The Power of You guides readers in discovering the other presence that resides within all of us. As author and spiritual director Chris Michaels shows, once we are able to tap into this presence, we can use it to help improve every aspect of our lives.
"Spiritual adviser Michaels offers guidance on using the power of your connection with God to harness individual potential, cease patterns of negative thinking, and find your calling. Michaels's God is not the 'Old Testament, Zeus-like deity,' but an 'internal presence' accessible to anyone. As a proponent of new spirituality, Michaels blends ideas from Christianity, the Dalai Lama, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Marcus Aurelius, and the Bhagavad Gita, among others. He has sage advice for overcoming adversity and refusing victimhood, and he champions nonconformity, noting that 'Galileo was ostracized. Jesus was ridiculed.' Michaels challenges readers to imagine success and fulfillment in life and provides detailed steps to make this vision a reality, like a 30-day meditation challenge and daily 'genius sessions.' Furthermore, he offers exercises for rethinking one's relationship to prayer, letting go of resentment, and finding 'your soul's assignment.' His 'Seven Practical Steps to Building Self-Worth' are powerful words to live by. More globally, Michaels discusses 'consciousness awakening,' a switch in human thinking from being a 'survival-oriented species... into a co-creative partnership with Spirit.' Michaels believes 'he creator is in love with you, its beloved creation' and his practical tips will be useful even to secularists." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
