This book is about calming the chaos in our lives. Even though my life isn’t full of chaos, my mind is, so I think I could benefit from this book. There are 24 chapters within 7 sections. The sections are: A New Paradigm Deepening Your Awareness At The Path To Change Energetic Consciousness It Is So Simple! The Power Of Focus Living Your Life In Alignment Planning And Intention I’ve been really stressed lately and this book is a great tool for living a calmer life. In using the steps she’s outlined in this book, I believe I can get some of that stress under control. One area I’m struggling with is trying to get rid of everything I don’t “have” to have so that I can move to a smaller place. Chapter 14 deals with decluttering and I think it will help me with that. Jackie says there are Energy Boosters (things that feed our sense of vitality, aliveness and satisfaction), and Energy Busters (things that drain and disempower us). Throughout the book there are worksheets to help you understand where you’re at and to help you improve your life. There are also many quotes. This one was written for me: "Go Through Your Mail As Soon As You Receive It" I am so bad at this. I usually just put it on the desk and after it piles up a bit I go through it. Even though I hate having to go through so much at a time, I continue to do it. I think not going through the mail as I get it is an Energy Buster, so I need to work on it. To be honest, I didn’t do any of the worksheets, but reading this book gave me a good feeling so I plan on re-reading it, this time slower, and taking time to do the worksheets. I think anyone who lives a chaotic life would benefit from this book and I’d recommend it 100%.
I found Calming the Chaos to be a extreme eye opener! I have learned over the years the importance of being true to yourself. I had really never though about the concept of TIME. After ready Calming Your Chaos I totally agree with Jackie's definition of TIME. I am curious if you too will agree or disagree with her. Reading her book I could definitely relate to Level One and Two. At one point in my life I was a miserable One. I guess due to survival I moved into a TWO. I do know I am currently a THREE. It took a terrible tragedy to make me do some serious soul searching and make some very needed change in my life. I have learned that I am who I am. I do make a difference in my way - not anyone else's way. I guess you could say I move at the beat of my drummer. People often are amazed I really don't care who and why....I seem to focus on what. I am considered the calm one at work and also in my life. 30 years ago that would of been a ridiculous description of me. I walked with a heavy load on my shoulders and was definitely fast to express disapproval. Please don't think I am saying I am perfect - I am far from that. I have a long way to go. But I am at peace with who I was and who I am now. A few times the One & Two come to life. It takes me a while to regroup and move ahead. I might be speaking a foreign language to you - if so. I highly recommend you give Calming the Chaos a try. Read it and hopefully I will make some sense. Calming the Chaos is a book I think everyone should read. Taking even the smallest meaning from the book with make a difference in your life.
