Change Maker is Rebecca Austill-Clausen’s story of her discovery that she could communicate with her brother after he died. Following this realization, a world she never imagined opened up to her—even as she doubted her sanity and feared she would lose the respect of her colleagues, as well as the love and support of her family. Austill-Clausen struggled with how her spiritual awakening and eventual spiritual transformation could mesh with the practical everyday world—the one where she had a rapidly growing rehabilitation business to run, and where she was known as a knowledgeable, science-based expert in the field of occupational therapy.

Each chapter of Change Maker explores spiritual beliefs and understanding, includes an original black-and-white illustration by Micki McAllister, and ends with an “Illumination”—guidance, suggestions, encouragement, and inspiration for readers who wish to pursue their own spiritual journey. The end result is a book that blends the best of memoir, self-help, new-age philosophy, and inspiration.

What A Transformational Ride, This is an extremely well written book and was a joy to read. How Becky became totally enlightened within a 10 month span of time is utterly unbelievable.

Change Maker is the memoir of Rebecca Austill-Clausen and her journey of how her brother's death woke her up. As she discovers that she can communicate with her dead brother, she struggles with her spiritual awakening and what it truly means. As she learns more and how she is transforming to this new way of thinking, she finds her true self that hidden with herself! I'm so torn about this book from liking it to just not feeling anything about it. I'm not into this New Age stuff at all but I do believe in life after death but just not in the way that Rebecca experiences it. This was a eye opener book for me and even though I wasn't into some of the things, I could see how a book like this could help someone to find their inner being! Thank You to Rebecca Austill-Clausen for sharing your journey to find your inner self after losing your brother. I received this book from BookSparks : Holiday Madness Blog Tour in exchange for a honest review!
