    I Also Recommend:

    This is the Best Self Help Book I have ever read.

    When I would hear the words, "God never gives us more than we can handle" I got to the point where I called that person a liar. I worked this book in a Codependency Group, and continue to do so. I've made friends with others just like me, and we support one another through our problems. I feel like I am finally healing. I have learned so many things from this book. Chapter Four was the hardest to do, but it was the most healing. I truly feel free.

    Even though this book talks about God, it is still helpful if you don't believe in God. I am a Buddhist, and I just put my spirituality in place of the God factor in the book.

    When we worked the book in it's entirty, we start it all over again. This book has helped us with abusive situations, past rapes, child abuse in our past, and any other problem you can think of.

    I hope this review helps. I can't explain how happy I have been since I opened this book, read it, and did exactly what it told me to do. If you dig into your heart and come out with the honest truth, the truth WILL set you free. Love, Light & Miracles.

    Inspiring and Helpful!

    This book both inspires us and provides us with direction in our lives. The author writes in such a gentle and inspiring way that you can not help but gather up your courage to break out of the chains that bind you to your past. The book also gives us very useful step by step guidelines about what we should do to grow out of the suffocating psychological walls we have built for ourselves. It is a fantastic book for anyone wanting to free themselves from their internal issues and move on with their lives! If you are interested in the theory of how all of this works, read 'The Ever-Transcending Spirit' by Toru Sato! It is an absolutely fantastic book that explains the psychological process that creates these negative states as well as the psychological process that enables us to grow out of them. These are the books that are presently guiding me to more and more freedom and happiness these days! I hope they do the same for you!
