The Secrets of the Bulletproof Spirit: How to Bounce Back from Life's Hardest Hits

Overview

When life deals you a particularly difficult blow or a staggering loss, how do you handle it? If you’re like most, you might think Why me?, struggle to find your way, or lash out at those around you. But there are a select few who seem emotionally hardier, who are able to face life’s physical, emotional, and financial hits undeterred and perhaps even forge ahead, empowered in the face of adversity. These people aren’t more deserving or luckier than the rest of us; they simply think differently–they are connected ...

Overview

When life deals you a particularly difficult blow or a staggering loss, how do you handle it? If you’re like most, you might think Why me?, struggle to find your way, or lash out at those around you. But there are a select few who seem emotionally hardier, who are able to face life’s physical, emotional, and financial hits undeterred and perhaps even forge ahead, empowered in the face of adversity. These people aren’t more deserving or luckier than the rest of us; they simply think differently–they are connected with their steady inner self and find strength where others might see meaninglessness; they make life-affirming choices instead of defeatist ones. In short, they are spiritually bulletproof. They face as many of life’s slings and arrows as the rest of us, but they don’t succumb to hardship or misfortune. And you can be one of them.

In The Secrets of the Bulletproof Spirit, renowned peace activist Azim Khamisa and inspirational speaker Jillian Quinn reveal the thirty essential keys to emotional and spiritual resiliency. Based upon their own experiences with heart-wrenching loss, the strategies they present may seem simple, but their advice can open up a whole new way of thinking. Khamisa and Quinn will help you discover

• that your thoughts help to create your reality, and that you can use them to take control of your life
• the potentially damaging mental routines you’re running on autopilot
• the vital connections between your upbringing and your “resiliency quotient”
• spiritually affirming thoughts that may help you make more spiritually empowering choices

“What lies within you really is more powerful than any hit you may take physically, emotionally, or materially,” the authors write. With their help, readers will find themselves more confident and secure in a volatile and uncertain world. When you learn to identify most strongly with that invincible core–your bulletproof spirit–you tap into the truest source of security available to you. And while there’s no foolproof way to stay out of the proverbial line of fire, the information, inspiration, and tools in this book will provide you with an emotional bulletproof vest, a way to take hits and come out on top.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Khamisa, an award-winning peace and forgiveness advocate, and Quinn, a life and spiritual coach, explore spiritual resiliency-the ability to recover from disappointment and tragedy and one of the strongest predictors of happiness. The authors assert that when individuals embrace spiritually affirming thoughts, they make more empowering choices, including maintaining good spiritual hygiene, connecting with their callings, taking care of their bodies, and creating a resilience-rich environment. Through their own personal stories and those of others, the authors reveal how spiritually bulletproof people think, providing exercises to help the reader learn and practice mental habits that support spiritual resiliency. Each chapter ends with a "Bounce Back Boot Camp" section that introduces techniques such as making time and space to mourn fully and deeply and to push into pain rather than be numb to true feelings. Thorough and enlightening, this book will help readers face life's challenges with a full arsenal of tools. (Feb.)

    A gift from a different view

    I was given this book by a friend after I found out I had a brain tumor.
    I have had my share of surgeries over the years, but having a brain tumor, well, this was the straw that broke the camel's back.

    The further into the book I read, things started to click and make me see things differently.

    I could relate to so much that was shared in the book and how it helped me to begin to recover from those hits.
    It is a support group in so many ways.

    I have post-it notes throughout the book so I can go back and re-read those sections that really hit home.

    The meaning of "forgiveness" and how powerful it is.
    One can only appreciate the efforts and honesty put into this book.
    Much thanks to the authors and God Bless your works.

    A TIMELY GEM

    This book is a great antidote for self-help books that are so often cliche-ridden and reductive. It is well-written and grounded in the "real world." The advice is practical, insightful, and tempered by recognizable experience. At a time when so many feel so much anxiety about the stability of their lives and futures--this is a timely investment in personal development.
