Bev has introduced me to language and practices I had learned to jeer out of fear. I had been conditioned to not only question the word prayer, but to mock it, even deride it. Over the years, with the exposure to leaders like and including Bev, I have learned to question organized religion but embrace and practice prayer, gratitude, visualization, mantras, reflection, and meditation.
In this book Bev offers practical tips and tools - most helpful for me were the ten tips for the awakening woman. Awakening means awareness and realization, shedding our conditioning, and then evolving. As Bev has said in a recent workshop, “waking up, growing up, and stepping up”.
Most impactful for me was learning about our “small self”. I realized I had been living in my small self - losing myself in roles, striving to prove my self-worth and fully defining my self-identity in these roles. When the role ends - you feel loss and failure.
Bev helps us to truly understand our hierarchy of needs. Obviously we need to be safe and healthy, but just as importantly, we also need to start with a loving relationship with ourselves - cultivating a willingness to learn with the grace of humility and gratitude, rather than self-criticism. Then we can turn to truly loving relationships with others, and finally, we are best positioned to serve in our purpose.
Bev guides us through this awakening, stimulating new insights and inviting us to grow. If you are searching, transitioning, struggling, or growing as a woman - this book is not only a valuable investment of your time, it is a reference resource to return to time and time again.
