Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Motivational speaker and author Debrena Jackson Gandy offers 101 "Sacred Power Principles" specifically written for African American women. Each principle is presented in a brief chapterette, making this an easy-to-digest, fast-paced read. Yet beneath her warm, girlfriend-to-girlfriend style of writing, Gandy packs a wallop of wisdom, which is why this works so well in small bites.

Most of the "Sacred Power Principles" revolve around the issues of internal self-care and self-love, arenas where black women still struggle, Gandy says. "We've been told to love ourselves and we know it's a good idea, but many of us haven't seen it modeled and it hasn't been 'exemplified' for us," she writes. "It exists as a good idea in our minds, but it is not yet a reality in our lives. Taught how to maintain and groom our bodies. Yes. Taught to love ourselves? No."

Although the spiritual and self-empowerment principles explored in this advice-laden book are ones we've all heard before, Gandy manages to use fresh metaphors and offer original suggestions. Her 101 chapters explore principles such as "Suspend judgment," "Claim your gremlins," "Know your ministry," "No more jerky moves," "Create intimacy with sister friends," and "Be bold, bodacious, and succulent (BBS)." --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This book is written to the black woman, but it trancends all racial boundries.
Read the first couple of pages of the excerpt and find out how the author's mentor gets her to be very specific in the diretion she takes in this book. On page three of the paperback, you really find out whether or not you need to read this book. I will site the authors words here that I find to be the key theme of this book:
Is your spirit killed?
"On the outside, we may look like we're doing fine, while on the inside, we are hemorrhaging spiritually. For many of us, the erosion has left holes in our souls and a trail of other effects: loss of motivation, procrastination, loss of energy, loss of passion and enthusiasm; feeling unfocused, unfulfilled, disorganized, always on the go, off center; being unsettled, anxious, nervous, indecisive, irritable, fidgety, or feeling as if your life has become one rushed hectic, stressful routine."
I am sure you will not be disappointed with this author's work. She speaks loud and clear! Just read it.

Format: Hardcover
I have been a self-help book junkie for 20 years and this book is now on my personal "TOP 10 MUST KEEP" list. Debrena has somehow taken the mystery out of basic mental and spiritual health principles. Her writing style is not "preachy" and is respectful of differing spiritual/religious belief systems. I prefer books that have real meat and are not personal journals of the author's life experiences. Debrena provides just enough personal experience to back up a concept. I really liked the way the book is organized by subject, rather than chronologically. It is so important for African American women to read self-help books from other women of color, because our experiences are different and our style of expression is different than mainstream America. Get yourself a highlighter when you sit down to read this book because you will need one! I wish I had written this book myself.

Truly excellent book. Get in touch with your sacred feminine self (the book mostly "speaks" to women, and black women in particular, but the recommendations, suggestions and styles are so that anyone can use them, believe in them, and get renewed sense of support and wellbeing). Check the table of contents of the book first, and pick titles of something that will get your day started and help you feel good, open, renewed and refreshed. Each piece is only about 1-2½ pages long so you read one when you wake up in the morning, on your lunch break, on the bus, are any time you need an uplifting anecdote. Very good to read when you are taking some solitary time to be alone. Her style of writing is wondrous, funny, charming, and enchanting. You'll learn how to be more open, receptive, and how to channel creative, positive, and negative energy in ways that can benefit you in all aspects of life (personal, financial, social, physically and emotional).

Format: Hardcover
This book will sit on your nightstand table because you will want to refer to it often. Ms. Gandy's book encompasses observations she has made and lessons she's learned from this journey called life. The book has some valuable information and exercises that are highly stimulating. It will get you to look at your life in review and from there map out a plan to continue on this day forward from a different perspective. The chapters are relatively short, easy to read and a provacative lesson given in each one. I enjoyed the personal stories and anecdotes that Debrena continually uses throughout the book. She is very aware of her surroundings, her environment and her life at all times. Her writing perspective is one of conscious living and reveals the use of authentic power. This book is like a coaching manual on the journey of life. I will be purchasing several copies to give to women who have made an impact on my own life.

I've picked this book up at least 10 times in the last 3 months, and it seems everytime I pick it up I hit upon the exact principle I need at that moment. What a blessing to have this wonderful book in my library! I'm giving this book to as many people as I can this Christmas!

In June 2001 I was in my local bookstore for another book and I bought this book as an afterthought. Well, I ended up reading this book and putting the other book aside! I have Ms. Gandy's first book and I tell you, she's done it again. Each principle covers a thought provoking topic and is made more personal by Ms. Gandy's personal relevations. I was so impressed by Ms. Gandy's latest book that 2 weeks later I went to see her at a book signing when she came to my hometown in July 2001. I got to the book signing early. As a result, I had the rare opportunity to speak to the author without interruption. The sister was approachable, helpful and sincere. Based on my first hand interaction with Ms. Gandy, and her positive and uplifting work, I've bought copies of her book and have given it to my friends. The principles are applicable to daily living. Some principles take more work than others, but that's life! I highly recommend this book to everyone.
