What You Feel is Real shares valuable lessons in life. Having been raised in a family with an alcoholic father taught Riley how to keep secrets, how to deny reality, and how to suppress her pain and feelings. She recreated that same family system when she married and had children.
Kathleen Riley's inspirational novel demonstrates how, thoughtfully, slowly and methodically, she climbed out of her dark emotional cave of depression into the light of awareness and health. Her feelings are familiar to anyone who has been in an abusive and addictive relationship. This story could have been written about many people. What makes it stand out is that Riley found the strength, sought professional help and support, and conquered her fear. She honored the feelings in her heart, using them to gauge her emotional growth and wellness. Her journey was a success and her well-being was restored.
Through What You Feel is Real, as a personal coach and public speaker, it's Riley's goal to help others transform themselves from being broken to becoming whole. Riley's mission is to empower others to move forward in the same positive ways that she did. She calls this state "Integrated Wellness."
"Integrated wellness is an endless continuum of self-awareness," said Riley. "Significant life change occurs with a simple shift in thinking and feeling when you aspire towards higher values."
In What You Feel Is Real, Riley shows readers how she channeled her once negative energies into positive ones and successfully moved forward in her life. In this compelling book, Riley writes: "It's taken five long years of writing this book to fully release the pain of all that I've experienced. The result has freed me from my victim mentality and has given me insight into healthy relationships."
"Whether it's taking personal responsibility, keeping your focus, staying in a positive flow, having purpose in your life or believing in a higher power, you naturally begin to make good decisions and improve the health and quality of your life," concludes Riley.
Riley inspires others through her private coaching practice located in Birmingham, Michigan and through public speaking/workshop events. She has coached hundreds of corporate executives, writers, creative artists, entrepreneurs, and seekers of personal growth. Riley says her practice is especially busy with people reinventing 'who they are' and searching for more meaning and purpose in life. Without guidance, these life passages can be difficult. A recent Center for Disease Control and Prevention study found that the suicide rate among 45-54-year-old women had increased 31 percent between 1999 and 2004. While the reasons for this alarming rise are unclear, without question proper support and direction could prove beneficial. http://community.nytimes.com/article/comments/2008/02/19/us/19suicide.html?s=1&pg=4
"Reading What You Feel is Real has been a true inspiration in my life," commented a Creative Director of a Detroit Ad Agency, "I know a good number of women who have been in abusive relationships and looked outside themselves for love. In my case, I went inside, took the dive, and now I'm soaring."
