I am being thrown a life raft

I have been searching for something to help me over the hump, and this is it. I was cruising thru Audible looking for something that could touch me in a familiar , deeply, soulful way, and this is it. I not able to listen to high pitched. excited, selling type of voices. I was almost about to give up, and then Spirit just thru this in the mix. My grandfather was a preacher, my mother was a choir director, and the way Iyanla has the prayers, songs, and breathing meditation organized, makes all the since in the world to me. I am finding, much peace of mind, and joy from this Blessing, thank you Iyanla for this gift. Thank you heaven for the guidance.

So relaxing & Helpful

This book has helped me to understand the importance of where my focus is. It has also shown me how to redirect my focus on that which matters first- myself. Thank you Iyanla & thank you a Jesus.

Excellent ... in every way!

Narrated in her own voice, this powerful spirit-body-mind meditation practice by Iyanla Vanzant is punctuated by an equally powerful song(writer) that also contributes greatly to my awareness, energy balance, and growth. I listen weekly. Many thanks to them both!

Self First

This book is exactly what I needed to recognize I have been putting myself last for too long. It led to having a bad attitude and not having patience with people. I cannot be there for everyone until you are there for yourself first.

powerful support for going forward.

I am a big fan of Iyanla. To hear her speak to my body, mind and soul was very comforting. I trust her wisdom, but even if you don't know who she is; I think you will find you are loved and held as she guides you to settle into many aspects of ourselves with grace and surrender.. I found this meditation calming and empowering. I will return to it
