A Pathway to Spiritual Renewal
Maida Berenblatt & Alena Joy Berenblatt
Who are you? Where have you been and where are you going? So
begins Changeweavers, the important new book on self-improvement
and change by self-esteem experts Maida Berenblatt and Alena Joy
Berenblatt (Health Communications, Inc., $10.95). Chapter
by chapter, Changeweavers explores the premise that many
of us get stuck in previously-formed beliefs and then teaches
us how we can get unstuck by honoring our own spiritual self.
According to the authors, "Self-portraits are formed early in life, then carried and implemented into adulthood without examination, creating patterns of low self-esteem and poor self-image." Often we stay stuck in this self-portrait and as adults, we construct our worlds and form important relationships based on impressions of ourselves we may had since age seven. In order to become "unstuck" we need to become changeweavers.
We all perceive the world in our own unique way, and Changeweavers takes us back on a journey through our childhoods to the core of our "inner child." With this experience we can examine which behaviors cause us to act and re-act in our adult lives. The authors contend, "The lesson of self-worth that we learn in the formative years is probably the greatest gift that we can bring to ourselves in our adult years."
Changeweavers teaches us that ultimately the relationship that we have with ourselves provides the foundation for developing our spirit. In order to affect change and develop our own spirituality, we need to move closer to our core and away from outside shapers. These "shapers" include other peoples opinions and evaluations, media influences, power struggles, and toxic relationships.
Changeweavers is a collection
of stories and exercises that include positive examples of emotional
and spiritual development as well as ways to effect change in
families, the workplace and relationships. Changeweavers promises
an exhilarating and exciting adventure. It is a journey of self-discovery
designed for the inner self.
