I could not have discovered this book at a better time. As someone who is challenged by debilitating chronic depression, worry, and pain, as well as addictions, I truly had lost faith in life. This book was like a life preserver thrown to me in the dark months of winter. It asserts that a greater intelligence is at play and that our struggles are here for us, not to work against us. It reminds us that our minds are powerful tools that we can use to assist ourselves, not cripple ourselves. It posits that there is great power and relief in just asking the universe questions about what frightens us, rather than constantly racking our brains for answers. It reminds us that deep breathing is possibly the best and easiest way to return to a state of calm and peace. And that's just a sampling of the many powerful messages and insights it offers. This book is one to be picked up over and over again, both early and often. I feel like I have a friend in Ms. O'Malley, even though I've never met her. Her life experiences rang true for me; and her messages presented in this book, in her previous books, on her website, and on her audio/video recordings are a true gift to this planet.
