Self-Empowerment Journal: A Companion to The Mind of the Soul: Responsible Choice by Gary Zukav, Linda Francis

The journal that transforms a reading book into a life-changing personal experience.
The Self-Empowerment Journal is the perfect companion to Gary Zukav and Linda Francis's The Mind of the Soul: Responsible Choice, a groundbreaking new book that explains how to take responsibility for the choices you make in life and to liberate yourself from the illusion that you are victim to your own circumstances. The journal contains empowering new material specifically developed to help you to actively apply the authors' suggested exercises and discover for yourself new ways of being that will bring satisfaction and wholeness into your life.
There is a special magic to journal writing. It is not enough to merely read about ways to improve your life. Working through the practical exercises and recording them in your journal becomes a genuine process of self-examination and self-discovery, a way of asking yourself meaningful questions and keeping track of your progress in spiritual growth.
By looking deeply into yourself, you can determine what works best for you. You will discover countless new opportunities and develop the freedom to experiment, decisively taking charge of your actions. You will also find ways to overcome the problems that hold you back, and practice new ways of achieving authentic power and spiritual growth. The journal is a crucial tool that will keep you focused on your journey, helping to make wise and empowering choices in life.

Read an Excerpt


Welcome to this special Self-Empowerment Journal. It is designed to accompany our book The Mind of the Soul: Responsible Choice.

Our intention for creating this Journal is very specific: We want to help you create authentic power — the alignment of your personality with your soul. Responsible choice is one of the essential skills you will need to create authentic power. As you develop the ability to choose responsibly, you will simultaneously become more powerful.

In this Journal we will do what we can to:

  • Show you the difference between authentic power and external power, and the role of responsible choice in creating authentic power.
  • Help you understand responsible choice intellectually, experientially, and, especially, emotionally.
  • Provide exercises, practices, and opportunities to create authentic power both while you are using this Journal and long after you complete it.

We do not ask you to accept what we write as true, but instead to notice what resonates with you and, when something does, experiment with it. If you like what your experiment produces, continue to experiment. If we present something with which you do not resonate, let it go. Don't try to wear a shoe that pinches. The Mind of the Soul: Responsible Choice and this Self-Empowerment Journal present a window through which we have come to see the world. This window has been helpful to us and we hope it will be helpful to you, too.
