Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In 1986, Beattie's Codependent No More spoke with a previously unheard voice, naming and describing a dysfunctional way of living that many people identified with but that had never before been publicly acknowledged or understood. Breaking that new ground made the book a bestseller and something of a cultural phenomenon. The author of several books since then (Stop Being Mean to Yourself, etc.), Beattie covers only familiar ground in this digest of the most popular New Age spirituality writings of the past decade. Using eight "doctrines," 12 "remedies" and many "activities," visualizations and "mantras" (ordinary self-help affirmations), she addresses the search for "who we are and who our souls want to be," the power of thoughts and words, chakras, intuition, electromagnetic waves of energy, synchronicity, the clearing of emotions, angels, the quest for God within oneself and the ability to work "with the powers of the universe to cocreate what is desirable and necessary and in our highest good." As always, she personalizes her topics by writing autobiographically, but here in an often vague and general way, and only rarely crediting the sources (which readers of New Age and self-help books will immediately recognize) of her ideas, seeming to imply that they are original. Beattie's writing style is far more polished than it was in 1986, but her message this time lags behind, rather than pushing ahead, of those espoused by many others. $40,000 ad/promo; author tour.

From Library Journal

Popular self-help author Beattie (e.g., Stop Being Mean to Yourself, LJ 6/15/97) again captures the zeitgeist with this combination narrative/toolkit for discovering emotional and spiritual power. Beattie bills herself as a "spiritual journalist" who tunes into stories dominating the emotional landscape. About finding your way home, says Beattie, "It's an idea emanating from the soul, from the deeper part of us, an idea that's found its time." Part 1 lays the groundwork. In Part 2, Beattie outlines eight basic beliefs to remember for staying on track. The third section encompasses 12 remedies, i.e., actions to take when pitfalls appear. Throughout, Beattie includes stories from her own journey, plus activities, journal entries, mantras, prayers, and visualizations to expand personal growth while offering understanding, comfort, and challenge. Recommended for public libraries, especially where self-help, 12-step, and Beattie's prior books have large followings.?B.J.M. Salovaara, Chicago P.L.

I've read many of Ms. Beattie's books before. Her candor is her greatest strength. In this book, she explores being human and believing in God. It is a very refreshing viewpoint. There is no psycho-babble. Some of it is a bit new-agey but overall, it is very practical. It touched on many issues I still deal with even though I've been out of a abusive & alcoholic family for 11 years. The work she recommends and the affirmations make me feel like I can take care of myself w/o therapy or self-help books. I realized I am not alone in my struggles. Ms. Beattie's forthrightness and conversational style lend to the intimacy of the book. When she shares her difficult moments and her associated comments, it is comforting to realize that our own experiences and related emotions are more normal that society would have have us believe. I especially enjoy her "walk with God" approach. It is that mindfulness that has inspired me the most.

Melody suggests reading the book through and then going back and reading it again to complete the activities. Well, that's how I started, but I connected so much with her introductory descriptions of how people have a sense of not belonging that I knew this book was written for me, for this moment of my life. It took me three weeks to read the book the first time. I read "Finding the Right Path" five mornings in a row. NOW I'm ready to go through this book again. "Finding Your Way Home" is exactly what the cover promises: a soul survival kit - tools for discovering your emotional and spiritual power. Melody's words and activities have helped me find an awareness and excitement about staying in the present.

This is one of those books that seems to have just came to me somehow. These are the books that I needed the most. I love this little book. I didn't really know I was lost until I read it. But after I started reading it, I started crying and all of these emotions were coming to the surface. Emotions that had been holding me back and weighing me down my whole life. It's touching, it's helpful, it's inspiring, and it's well-written and personal. I've read a lot of self-help books or books to help you find God, but this book was like none of the other books I've read. It is sweet, to the point, and it hits your emotional trigger points in a gentle manner, but effectively. This book is full of love! And once you read it, you will be thankful for the love that it awakens in your heart. The main things I gained from this book are the ability to forgive myself and the realization that I truly am NOT alone. I realized that I plow through life often scared, uncertain of who I am or what my purpose is, and too often unsure if God is really with me. After I read some of this book, my heart felt free from the heavy burdens that I had carried my whole life. This is a great book!

I have found so much help in this book, I was at a complacent level as events and situations were happening in my life. I fell back into fear,confusion, vuneralable place, and what I was doing at the time did not seem to make an effect or help me out of my stuff. I saw this book as I was going through Melody's list on Amazon.com and read the review and I instantly knew this was the book for me. At this same time one of my daughters was going through a tough time with relationship (husband) and alot of old stuff came back to me from past that had not been taken care of completely,I guess. She sent me a book by Angelyn Miller,The Enabler, and she helped me see where the many loose ends had not been dealt with, because she described much more clearly the antics of my enabling which I had not taken into consideration before. I have been in Alanon for 15yrs. and have worked through a great deal of my pain, fear, etc. I am still in Alanon (very small group) I have always needed more input besides Alanon literature for my growth. I love Finding Your Way Home, I have read the entire book and now going back to work the exercises as you suggested. I realize now I am working on a totally different level of my inner self, with much more understanding of myself and a much closer and meaningful relationship with my God. This is a great book for me, as many of your books have been, you have been there and done that, which allows me to relate to your words and works. Thank You Barbara Jansen

Finding Your Way Home is the first book I have read by Melody Beattie. Because of her simple writing style, I plan to read the others. I enjoyed the personal anecdotes and the activities to practice at the end of each chapter. Also, the meditations are easy to follow and practice. My favorite one that I now use every morning and evening is creating a healing vortex (p.176) to clear your energy field. It helps me balance and focus my energy for the day and release my daily baggage before I sleep. This book provides many ideas and activities to help you connect and remember your soul.

I first read this book about 8 years ago and reread it this year. I thought it was excellent as a first read, and even better the second time around. It has definitely changed my life in a very positive way once again. I am going to keep this one on my nightstand for times when I need simple reminders to guide me through difficult situations. Though they seem simplistic at first glance, her ideas and suggestions are extremely profound and wonderful for those of us searching for peace.
