Guiding Principles for Life Beyond Victim ConsciousnessMost people, as Lynne carefully points out, try to control feeling dynamics. You can not, as it is on five major life bearing [harmonic] boundary levels. The wisdom of Ms Forrest carefully points to a universal energy harmonics [our life essence, if you will], like a tuning fork we all can sense, once open to it. It is a song of serenity, to Lynne forest. Thus, our symbols supplement our ding for the state of being she calls...the "BELOVED", the spirit-self. We all have as we are born with it.. What do we do with God's gift of life. love and human caring?
Lynne points out that we basically hide from feeling as it is exacting when active, or as most do, self-armor and destroy the vary sources of their personal life questioning as a real necessary knowing. The godhead in us is alive and well.. Lynne pints out in minute detail, every aspect of the feeling/emotional presence in our every day of you life. if it was not a living truth, your feelings would be total lost to guide you. for the most part, victim consciousness is feed to us, form birth to death.
Ms Forest enables us to heal the knowing directly given to us....It is an easy read, and it will be all that you can handle to bring back the joy of love to your life. ...Putting love and logic into perspective is not easy. Stepping back to be ale to see our "all or nothing blame conditioned lives", is trying, Yes. More importantly, Lynne Forrest gives us the KEYS to a passive knowing; showing us the now that comes with our love of life. Want to be really free to experience an impeccable union made of love and a shared serenity, The guiding Principles of Life Beyond Victim Consciousness....is a must read for any sociology, philosophy or psychology student, or any one of five major study sciences.
Forrest excels at showing us how most people are caught up in victim consciousness, which she defines as the "habit of thinking something outside of us is responsible for our happiness or unhappiness." The elegant simplicity of this observation is the foundation of the transformation Forrest prescribes, moving us into observer consciousness, "a personal state of awareness that allows us to recognize the happenings in our lives as intentional opportunities to further our connection with ourselves and with Source."
With a wealth of real-life examples and helpful diagrams, Beyond Victim Consciousness explains why it's important to show up with a willing attitude, to be in alignment, and to clear one's energies in order to move out of victim-rescuer-persecutor mindset into observer-nurturer-asserter mindset. Forrest is quick to give credit where credit is due, as she seamlessly weaves together the primary strengths from a variety of sources into a solid suite of techniques that is time-tested and effective at producing immediate and lasting results.
I love the way Forrest shows how getting off the victim triangle involves relating in an entirely new way to our feelings -- particularly our feelings of pain -- that we would otherwise typically tend to repress. Forrest lovingly demonstrates how painful feelings are signals and messages that we can learn from (rather than indulge ourselves in), and she helps explain how and why it is that these painful feelings will help show us the way out of the victim triangle.
"Beyond Victim Consciousness" is an outstanding reference book for all therapists, psychologists and life coaches working to help people recognize and transcend limiting beliefs and patterns, as well as anyone genuinely interested in making their life the very best it can be. I give this book my highest recommendation -- for helping people shift their lives in the very best possible ways!
