I find that she could have said a lot of this in less words, and i find myself suspeicious of her data, now that I know she's turned away from her energy work life and is very deragatory about it.

But there is some good information here. You just have to wade through a lot of words.
An amazing book that has helped me tremendously with finding out the message of certain emotions that come up and how to get through them. I love how she explains how emotions and their messages to our souls. Instead of us trying to avoid feeling what we feel, we must breathe, understand and get through it. It's a beautiful and powerful book!
