Why do women today find themselves stuck and afraid to take risks? “Because as little girls they were told to be good and behave,” says author Christine Green. In Authentic Spirituality: A Woman’s Guide to Living an Empowered Life, Green taps her 20 years of counseling to highlight stresses and challenges that women face every day. The book includes case histories and Green’s own experiences on her path of spiritual development.
“Little girls obeyed the rules and expectations of family, the church and society”, says Green. “Rules were repeated constantly. Be polite. Share with everyone. It’s not nice to be angry. Little girls should be seen and not heard. Years later, many women woke up to find their creativity suppressed and struggling to find meaning in their lives.”
The book is a handy guide and a helpful resource for women of all ages, professions, and spiritual development. It provides insights and practical resources for the reader to let go of childhood beliefs and to transform challenges into intentions. Green’s honesty about her own journey breathes life into the principles. Readers will learn how to:
- Identify the pitfalls that prevent change
- Overcome blocks and ask for what they want
- Take responsibility without blaming themselves
- Let go of unproductive thinking
- Develop skills to take action
“Women are often unaware of the substantial emotional baggage they carry,” says Green. “Guilt, self-judgment, victim thinking are a few of the ways women sabotage themselves. As they heal those beliefs they have more self-acceptance and can take action. They begin to see a new perspective of their lives.”
