As a professor of psychology, I am particularly grateful for the chapter on disharmony. Nowhere else have I read a clearer, more concise and funny description of the central role of the ego in human achievement and in human blockage. At once sobering and inspiring, the book captures the central, joyous insights of the modern, positive psychology movement, while fearlessly addressing the tragic aspects of the world we have created. This grounding in the difficult world of our headlines and everyday experiences, brings her encouraging message of personal development and spiritual growth to an urgency and determination that the unfolding of our deep positive potential is both an act of great personal fulfillment as well as a contribution to the healing of our wounded world.
As human beings we are called to provide a link between heaven and earth, by manifesting love, goodness, creativity, significance, and contributions on earth. Many sages and teachers have tried to show that path through the ages. Some have appealed to our souls, some to our hearts, and others to our mind. Daphne Michaels’ inspirational book weaves all three of these into a deep understanding of how each one of us can manifest the full possibilities of our potential.
Using simple, yet moving language and metaphors we are guided into finding and skillfully using the place of our greatest resourcefulness inside. A tremendous advantage of this book is that it avoids psychological jargon, while offering essential insights about the architecture of our self-delivery.
Having read most chapters several times already, I find that I can use the book to re-center myself during busy days. Just by opening to a random page and reading for a few minutes I can track the up-shift in my personal functioning. The book is filled with transformation-inducing ideas, expressed in a style of writing that fluidly guides my awareness to the next higher level.
Highly recommended! I look forward to the next installment in this series.
Each and every one of us is gifted with the nine gifts in this book. We often feel them on some level at times, but do not recognize them for what they are or we do not know how to use them.
With the integration of the three main essential gifts: Awareness, Potential and Stillness, which already reside within each of us, we are able to recognize the six remaining gifts to live the life of our dreams and improve the world around us.
Daphne Michael’s book helps us develop an awareness of our gifts and through committed practice, guides us in transforming our lives into what they were meant to be.
Life, like a beautiful, babbling creek, cascades and bubbles over rocky terrain and then flows smoothly along a harmonious path. Dancing around bends and sparkling in the sunlight, creating glorious music in our hearts. This is the light we have the potential to direct back into the world in a continuous stream of on-going harmony with the embodiment of the nine gifts in this book.
The Gifted helps keep us aligned with the three most significant gifts of Awareness, Potential and Stillness throughout the ebb and flow of our lives.
We discover Disharmony has a place in our lives as a gift; a reason for being. Through disharmony, we learn to appreciate the gift of Harmony in a much deeper level of our consciousness, reminding us of the importance of balance in our lives.
Daphne Michael’s book is as timeless as the gift of Stillness itself. These nine gifts have the power to create in us an awareness and sensitivity to the subtle energies around us, enabling us to hear the inner voice of our deepest selves, our intuitions, previously dulled by the noise inside our minds and hearts.
The Gifted is a light weight book I bring with me in my travels daily; in the car, briefcase or backpack. When life’s creek cascades wildly or chaos abounds, I have only to read a few of my highlighted portions, to remind myself how to get back to what’s truly important, how to get back to my true potential and back to the authentic flow of the life of my dreams.
Thank you Daphne Michaels, for the gift of this book. I’m excited to read more of The Gifted series.
keep trying to find our true potential as we struggle to make sense of the chaos of our lives. The chapter on disharmony and the understanding of ego and how it can prevent us from reaching our true selves was very informative. My wife and I enjoyed reading this book. it is definitely something we will refer back to as we continue on our journey to consciousness.
Because of Daphne Michaels my life is more balanced, alive, and blessed.
Thank you Daphne you are a gift to all!
