This is a superb book that I have read in a heartbeat over the course of two days. Unlike all other self-help books that mostly just declare various things without going into too much detail, this book actually elaborates on a lot of different topics and makes a clear delineation between things whose difference is only slight. This book also gives a lot of practical examples and stories. There is a lot of truth to things claimed in this book. I especially liked the chapter on horse whispering and how the universe mirrors our thoughts. I don't want to write too many spoilers, so let me just say that I liked this book a lot and that I highly recommend it to anyone interested in self-improvement and growth.

I love this book ! There is so much in it ! You can flip to the table of contents and see anything from Whose underwear are you wearing to Dealing with the I should be better syndrome . I loved how open Amy was in sharing parts of her journey with us while offering us examples ( sprinkled with humor ) on how to possibly see things differently , opening up my perspective . I so enjoyed this book that I'm ordering one for each one of my teenagers and sharing with family and friends .. Great read , get it !

This isn't your typical self help book. It's down to earth, funny and incredibly insightful. I can't count how many times I thought to myself "that's so true!" as I was reading. Amy arms the reader with a host of practical tools and easy-to-implement strategies that are truly life changing. I also loved this book because it's easy to pick up and just read a few pages or study for hours on end. Get yours today so you can say you found her before she was a household name!

I've read hundreds of self-help books and been on the spiritual path for many years. I resonate with authentic, down-to-earth teachers who help me to shake things up, especially my ego. I consider Amy to be a guru of mine. Her work has really helped me to get in touch with the areas that were still needing attention in my life, even after so much personal development work.

What I loved the most about Amy's book is that it's practical and easy-to-understand. Each section is easy to digest and apply to your daily life. I also love that she gives the reader so many tools for managing relationships, which are our biggest teachers and really, our source of becoming "enlightened." This is powerful stuff for your heart and spirit, that is for sure.

Early into the book, I had a massive healing when it came to the big disaster that shaped my life. After spending so much time and money on going to healers and counselors over the years, I was astounded at how Amy helped me get to one of my core issues right off the bat. As I read her book, I had many a-ha moments, too many to count.

I really recommend this book if you've been wanting a grounded approach to personal development and to understand how to navigate relationships. Amy has a fresh voice, a new generation spiritual teacher. You will love this book.
