"Melody Beattie gives you the tools to discover the magnificence and splendor of your being." -- Deepak Chopra, MD. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Publisher
Melody Beattie, the bestselling author of Codependent No More and Beyond Codependency , has now created Hazelden's first meditation book for codependents. Here are reflections that nurture spiritual and emotional health, serenity, and recovery. Focusing on self-esteem and acceptance, and written in the direct, unsentimental style of Beattie's bestsellers, these daily meditations give voice to the thoughts and feelings common to men and women in recovery. They encourage fruitful reflection on problem-solving, self-awareness, sexuality, intimacy, detachment, attachment, acceptance, feelings, relationships, spirituality, and more.
Offering hope and inspiration, tempered with the clear-eyed perspective of one who has been there and back, the author empowers readers to affirm who they are--their beliefs, thoughts, instincts, feelings--and, ultimately, their ability to change. These meditations are tools designed to help recovering codependents realize the goal Beattie defines as "stopping the pain and gaining control of your life"

This book is about so much more than letting go. It is also about personal power. When you let go of something, it loses its power to control you, and you move forward with your life in a more empowering way.
This book is set up with daily meditations on different issues. If you were to open any page at random, you would probably find something very useful. It is easily read, and as you read can feel the shift in your perception, as these simple to follow principles make a lot of sense.
If you are like most people, there are plenty of things you need to let go of, and you probably have no idea what some of these are. The first step is to identify that a change needs to be made.
Here are many ideas you can use to improve your life. There are too many for me to list in a review, but here are a few biggies:
Attachment, guilt, blame, seeking appoval, codependency, fear, doubt, controlling, family issues, perfection, martyrdom, denial, grief, anger, victimhood.
You replace these non serving beliefs with something more empowering, as you start to practice detachment, self approval, develop an abundance mentality, an attitude of gratitude etc.
There is a principle in psychology that if you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always gotten.
So,let go and move forward. Imagine how pleased you will be when you have made a lasting change in your life. All lasting changes in your outer reality are accompanied by changes in internal perception.
I highly recommend this book.
When I find myself tempted by defeating behaviors, reading one passage reminds me why I don't want to continue down that road any longer.
The funny thing is, I never saw myself as a codependent or as an addictive person. It doesn't matter what type of turmoil you're going through -- this book WILL remind you of a better way of life.
It truly is a lifeline. I keep a copy at work and am discovering I'll need one at home to. If you struggle with any type of negativity, this book can help remind you that it's really going to be okay.
I give this book as graduation, birthday, and anniversary gifts to those special people I love. I am now ordering another copy for me, too, as I have worn mine out from reading a short meditation every day that always makes me feel better! The author may not be an angel, but she definitely has connections that will touch your heart and soul!
Melody Beattie's book of meditations is a guidebook for life. It's about holding on to what is meaningful, and letting go of that which can only continue to hurt us. The meditations, one for each day of the year, seem to be divinely inspired.
No matter what pain you feel, these meditations are a healing balm for a wounded heart. Melody Beattie's clear and simple writing addresses the difficulties of living, loving, caring, surviving, being gentle with one's self, making mistakes, learning to detach with love, and finding balance.
During a year in which I experienced major loss, and mounting stress, caring for several family members with major illness, and coping with my own, "The Language of Letting Go" was my lifeline. This book helped me regain a sense of perspective. In times of great despair, it has been a lifeline.
Imagine reading one book for five minutes each morning or night, and literally having it change your life for the better. This is that book. "Language of Letting Go" is clearly written, accessible, and direct. I recommend it to anyone experiencing pain, confusion, despair, depression, loss, anger, frustration, and grief. It will help you find your way.
A personal aside to anyone put off by use of the word "God" in books about recovery. For many of us, the word "God" was used to shame us as children, when hearing it or seeing it, we still cringe.Read more ›
