Emotional Freedom and Transformation at Midlife, A Book for Women
Author: Tian Dayton
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Forgiveness is not an event, it is a process. Forgiveness is most powerful when a woman reaches midlife: a natural time for reflection when she stands at a biological and emotional crossroads. In this groundbreaking book—the first of its kind for women—acclaimed therapist Tian Dayton shows women how assessing their lives and forgiving old wounds is as essential to their well-being as proper nutrition and retirement planning. In forgiving, we must work through layers of issues, pain and resentment. Because of this, the process is of great psychological, emotional and spiritual benefit. Left unresolved, past hurts wield their power from within and can contribute to depression and anxiety, undermining the immune system and ultimately opening the door to a multitude of diseases. And harboring resentment prevents us from engaging in deep, meaningful relationships. Through solid research, poignant case studies and personal examples, Dr. Dayton guides women through the sometimes painful but healing process to provide the comfort that may have eluded them for years. This beautifully written book will open women's eyes to the liberating power of forgiveness and provide the ability to find true joy.
There is this mystery of man’s relationship to God. Every person has this relationship. We need to make the exploration of that relationship a life-long priority. We identify with our bodies, but we are not our body. Similarly, we identify with our culture, language, religions, but we are not any of these things either. Our true story is the story of our real identity. We need to find out who that is. Just as we have duties in the world at the same time we also have to do what is necessary to understand reality, and who we are in that reality. That, in fact, is our primary duty. - Musa Muhaiyaddeen “This book will enrich your life.” - Professor Beverly Mack, PhD., University of Kansas

Tearing down this wall and letting people see the real me—the pain, the struggles, the tears, and the triumphs has been difficult but rewarding.

It delves into discovering a person’s true identity, centered on God’s view of each of us, letting go of the insecurities that so easily entangle our lives and finally, living with eternal perspective—keeping our focus heavenward instead of inward.

Anxiety feels like living life 'on guard'. Learn how to let your guard down and gain more fulfilment from your life without being held back by anxiety. The simplest way to overcome anxiety, if you want the cure-all is really just to get out of your comfort zone over and over and over again, because when we get out of that comfort zone, it literally becomes impossible to stay anxious. The irony, the conundrum here is that when we're feeling anxious, getting out of a comfort zone is actually a lot more difficult than what it ordinarily would be and it ordinarily is difficult. The problem is with acute and chronic anxiety, just the littlest tiny things sometimes can trigger yourself. These little relatively insignificant things that would ordinarily have little or no impact on us can hit us a lot harder when we're feeling anxious. As a result, that process of getting out of that comfort zone is just much more complicated and much more challenging than it ordinarily would be. It's a bit like trying to do exercise or do something physical when you're severely sunburned. When you're severely sunburned, even the process of trying to go to sleep at night can be excruciatingly painful because every toss and turn, as you're rolling over in your sleep, you feel the sheets rubbing across your skin and it's painful. Whereas ordinarily, you wouldn't notice that at all. Now, that red raw, sort of extra sensitivity and emotional pain could probably quite simply be healed purely for the power of connecting with people. If you've got good friendships, good relationships, if you've got people around you that you can feel a strong sense of connectedness to, well that alone would probably offer a fairly simple solution to help you recover through your anxieties. The problem is, again, is that irony. There's that conundrum, the catch-22, which is that with chronic and acute anxiety, the process of feeling connected to people becomes inhibited. In other words, it's a lot more difficult to feel connected to people when you're anxious. There's a couple of reasons for that by the way and I will be sharing a whole bunch of them with you in this new eBook. Whether you are suffering from some major 'acute' anxiety right now, or you have suffered from anxiety attacks and chronic anxiety for some time the cure is the same, it just takes a little more practice getting out of your comfort zone when you have been doing stress and anxiety for such a long time. Nevertheless don't stress because this book contains all the tips, tricks and mind hacks you are going to need to begin you anxiety free life!
