I have written before about the work I have done to change my thought processes from negative to positive and the positive affect it has had on my life, the people in my life and my family. This journey for me has been in the area of 5 yrs, its slow going and it has to be for it to be real. This past year I have been on the look out for a guide or guides to help me further my spiritual growth. I have met so many wonderful people, sadly a few I thought were true friends ended up not staying in my life. On the whole there have only been a few relationships that have been a disappointment or learning experience which is a small percentage of those I have met. I trust very easily and that isn’t always a good thing.
One of the many contacts I have made over the past few years is Sloan Rawlins. She writes a blog called “Taming the Invisible Dragon“, I learn so much from the wisdom she shares about her life experiences and her journey in healing, happiness and self-realization. Every time I read her posts I gather wisdom, about how to carry on, change my life for the better and live fully.
Sloan Rawlins has now published her first book, and it is titled “Taming the Invisible Dragon” same as her blog. I immediately acquired this book and read it cover to cover in two sittings. Only because I got interrupted by life and kids or I would have read it through in one sitting. I found this book to be the guide I have been looking for, simple, clear, and Sloan is sharing what she has learned on her path to Healing, Happiness and Self-Realization. She writes this book as a helpful tool, not a victim of the hard times in her life, but as a guide to help others in their path to happiness.
We are all responsible for our own life, the way we manage it, our healing, and happiness. I have always felt that some part of me knew I could be happier but it took a lot of years to realize how to go about changing. I have come a long way from a very unhappy, reactive, drama filled life to one of happiness. There is still something missing and when reading Sloan’s book I see this is the tool I have been looking for to help open up my spiritual side, learn and grow into the person I truly am.
I believe each and every one of us are on this type of journey, sometimes we know it and other times we do not. When we do not know we can be happy by choice and we can change the negativity, that negativity in our lives it will take over. Now I know a lot of my readers have illness’s that affect your level of happiness but coming from one diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, I can tell you we can take control of a certain amount of our happiness and can grow within. It takes serious work, as you all know if you are diagnosed with a mental illness, every day is work but believe me you can improve your life with a better understanding of yourself and what you want in this life beyond physical things.
I believe in every person out there! You must start with loving, accepting and believing in yourself no matter what you have been programmed to think. You can change your life and Sloan’s book for me has been a great source of wisdom and a guide that will help me make some serious changes. I want to suggest this book to you if you at all are wanting to change your life for the better.
