"Bridgitte's writing comes directly from the heart, and will help you unblock your connection to your inner guidance.”- Elizabeth Lesser, Co-founder of Omega Institute
"Sometimes a book title is all you need. The words on the cover grab you by the heart and won’t let you go. The Gift of Crisis is such a title. Crisis? Oh yeah, that’s me. And it’s you, too. It’s everyone. Show me the person who hasn’t been swept into the riptide of crisis. But it’s the word Gift that made me open this book and, I must tell you, I opened it with a smile. I know this gift. I carry an armload of these gifts. Like Bridgitte Jackson-Buckley, I have faced a crisis or two or three. And each one, awful as it was at the time, handed me a gift to treasure for the rest of my life."- Janet Conner, author of bestsellng Writing Down Your Soul
"What Bridgitte reminds us is that it is so important to continue the work that is ours to do, to push on, to be relentless, to be unfailingly loyal to ourselves and our higher being. She teaches that following our way requires persistence, repetition and devotion. That being inspired and being fired by the passion within us is what is required to consistently apply the tools that we have, to gain our own level of enlightenment, our own bliss. Often self-help books try to tell us that we can do the work in a very easy way and get results instantly. What Bridgett shows us is that it is not necessarily that the way itself that is difficult, but that we must be persistent in our practices, and this is what requires effort - ongoing and repeated effort." -B. Jean Lein, CPA, ALSP, Certified Energy Codes Facilitator and Licensed Practitioner
"This book reminds us of the grace in the crisis, and the opportunity to transform and accept it as catalyst to live into our highest vision of our authentic life." - Sande Hart, Director of the Charter for Compassion International Women and Girls
"There is nothing more beautiful than a human story of awakening. To hear the direct experience of others, told with candor and heart, is a great teacher for us all. This is a touching, well-written and captivating account of one woman’s life and if you read it you will get a sense of how one can be guided by some form of higher intelligence, if one starts to listen. However, dues must be paid. Bridgitte Jackson-Buckly paid them, and now lives from a deeply connected place in service to life." - Megan McFeely, Producer/Director of As She Is
"In The Gift of Crisis, Bridgitte reveals very personal struggles and shares how she resolved them with guidance from her "Higher Mind." In a detailed, well-written account, the author shares how meditation practice shed new light and perspective on re-occurring challenges. The reader is encouraged to "try this at home." - Catherine Yunt, M.C.
"Bridgitte Jackson-Buckley has written an engaging story about how she integrated her spiritual self with her worldly personality to shift what I often call the “inner blueprint”―that pattern of thought and energy that gives rise to physical reality. She used many creative perceptual methods to recreate her life to include more flow, supply, support, opportunity, and synchronicity. She demonstrates clearly how anyone can do it! It’s a simple matter of changing your perception and frequency―really!" - Penney Peirce, author of Transparency, Leap of Perception, and Frequency
"Bridgitte Jackson-Buckley has the gift of observing the little details that make her story come to life, and make her spiritual journey meaningful. In her quest for a better way to live, she made discoveries of deep principles that will enrich your understanding of how the Universe works. With careful attention to the step-by-step process she went through to get in touch with her inner guidance system, she provides a clear roadmap for clarifying your own thinking about your life, your potential and your destiny." - Chris Vogler, screenwriter, author of The Writer's Journey
"In a clear and compassionate style, Bridgitte Jackson-Buckley shows us the gift of both crisis and meditation―to lead us into our deepest wisdom and highest self. An evolved, insightful and genuinely helpful read!"
- Nancy Colier, psychotherapist, interfaith minister, author of The Power of Off: The Mindful Way to Stay Sane in a Virtual World
"I had the pleasure of meeting Bridgitte Jackson-Buckley last year. During our conversation, we agreed that hard times can provide
great opportunities to recapitulate about what you have done, right or wrong, and where change is needed. With the wisdom and experience of someone who has done it in her own life, in The Gift of Crisis, Bridgitte offers amazing information to put movement toward change."
-Sergio Magaña, author of Caves of Power: Ancient Energy Techniques for Healing, Rejuvenation and Manifestation

Bridgitte Jackson Buckley’s book The Gift of Crisis allows us to reframe a crisis from a curse and to see it as a gift. What if a crisis is actually a gift of healing from our Higher Soul? What if inherent in the crisis itself are the actual seeds of our future successes? Then all we really would need is a map of some sort, an instruction book to decode the crisis. Buckley’s book is that decoder ring. She has run the rapids of her own magnificent failure—falling from wealth and ease deep into welfare and hardship. But throughout her journey into the dark night of the soul, Buckley became keenly aware of her own inner guidance system, a guidance system that each one of us has as her or his own birthright.
In detailing her own journey through crisis, Buckley gives us the tools to discover the real gift inherent within every crisis—the gift of transformation and rebirth. I only wish that I had had this book when I went through my own bankruptcy and foreclosure back in the 1990s. It would have provided me a much needed beacon of Light in the darkness.
Thank you Bridgitte Jackson Buckley for The Gift of Crisis. It provides a much needed beacon of Light in these deeply turbulent times.
Roxanne Reaver, author of Lesbian Buddha in Hollywood
