Difficult relationships and challenging circumstances all come down to one thing: drama. In this groundbreaking book, Doreen Virtue guides you through the process of determining your Drama Quotient. You'll discover how much stress you are unnecessarily tolerating and absorbing from other people and situations.
Doreen explains the physiological reasons why you can become addicted to high-drama relationships, jobs, and lifestyles, and how to heal from this cycle. You'll come to understand how traumatic events from the past may have triggered post-traumatic symptoms, including anxiety, weight gain, and addictions—and you'll learn natural and scientifically supported methods for restoring peace and balance to your body and your life.
Doreen shows you how to:
• Deal with relatives, friends, and co-workers who are “hooked” on drama
• Assess your own level of drama addiction
• Stop allowing negativity in your life
· Relieve anxiety and bring about inner peace
Go on an overall Drama Detox to clear away negativity, and let your light shine through!
Readers of my blog know how much I enjoy reading Doreen's work, so the latest addition to hit our shelves in September 2015 is something I've looked forward to.
The latest book is called; Don't Let Anything Dull Your Sparkle. I admit it's a bit fluffy, but in the self help world, I can see why it will attract buyers. There's a lot to be said for trying to boost people's confidence in the self help world, and I can't help but wonder if there are TOO many books out there trying to fix people... shouldn't we actually be reading about how wonderful we are and how we can enhance those aspects of ourselves? we shouldn't be constantly being told that we need to do this, and we need therapy for that, and this is wrong but we can make it right blah blah blah... But, yes this book has a purpose, and it has an audience who want to be 'fixed'.
I enjoyed reading about Doreen's acknowledgement of her studying psychotherapy and counselling (something we haven't heard of in her more recent books - since The Lightworkers Way), and it was refreshing for her to admit that even with all her training, experience and knowledge... AND good parents, even she struggles and has struggled with areas in her life such as relationships. It's nice to read something that doesn't feel judgemental and you can sense the REALness about Doreen in this book.
I feel it offers good advice, insights, activities and makes you think about how you can become a more assertive person and really take good care of yourself. I'd recommend this book to anyone who needs that added boost in their life to believe in themselves, and it's something that I would and could see myself dipping in and out of when areas in my life need that bit of advice and detoxing.
It's nice to see the return of the author that I became a fan of all those years ago with The Lightworkers Way.
