Zhana asks us to celebrate ourselves, all of who and what we are. As we are the descendants of our ancestors, we hold immense power to change the world. Change your negatives into positives. Zhana suggests that we try a simple exercise. Focus on one area of improvement – health, money and finances, relationships. Then list all of the reasons why change in this area cannot occur and, on the opposite side, all of the reasons and ways in which change can be accomplished. In two short weeks, we will have a much clearer vision and a list of itemized goals.
The view from one’s higher self may also alter how we perceive our problems. If one can imagine viewing one’s life from the top of a mountain, suddenly the grocery cart crashing into the side of our car, the argument we had with a spouse last night, even losing one’s job or home may not seem quite as significant. Work with the light. Send that light from the center of your heart into the heart of the individual causing your issue.
Zhana provides great advice, asking us to focus on success. Remember, if you direct your energies toward a goal, the greater your chances of succeeding. I don’t know about you, but I would far rather be a creature of the light than a cog upon the wheel of darkness.
Although this book may have a spin toward success strategies for black people, I find that Zhana’s words largely make sense for those of any race, color or creed. None of us is infallible. Some may be shackled by a terrible past such as child abuse, afflicted with mental or physical disabilities or even be desperately poor, apparently without the means to climb out of their current environment. Overall, it can be very daunting.
Don’t give up! Zhana provides numerous effective strategies in this book to change your life, to focus on the good instead of the bad. Make a difference in the world. Make it a better place because you have lived. What if all of us did that? That’s the world in which I wish to dwell. Using some of the strategies in this book, we might very well take a step in the right direction. Well done, Zhana, for offering us alternatives to change our lives. You provide us with the tools to accomplish our goals. We have only to reach out and become the change.
