Readers who have come out of recovery, undergone therapy or tried other methods of self-help and self-development-- yet still feel that something is missing-- will find the answers they seek in this volume. "Do I Have to Give Up Me to Be Loved by God?" offers the much-needed path that shows readers how to move out of the earthly perspective and into the spiritual perspective-- out of fear and into love, out of the need to control and into trust. It is the path that will teach readers how to live in truth, how to love themselves and others, and how to connect deeply with God so that they can embrace the infinite gifts and blessings of being alive. The book includes many anecdotes and case histories from the author's twenty-six-year career as a psychologist, as well as from her personal experiences of direct contact with God. In a clear and easy-to-read style, it presents a simple six-step process that will lead to soul evolution: being willing to face our fears, feel our pain and take responsibility for our feelings; choosing to learn by inviting spiritual guidance into our hearts and releasing our personal will to God's will; dialoguing with our wounded inner child, exploring our fears, our false beliefs and the resulting behaviors that are causing our pain; dialoguing with God to discover the truth and the loving actions we should take toward our inner child and others; taking the loving action inspired by God; evaluating that action. This innovative process will show readers how to access spiritual guidance, how to change false beliefs rapidly and heal shame, how to quickly move beyond judgment and into compassion, and how to attain what they really want by recognizing and breaking through the "Resistance Syndorme" that keeps us all "stuck". Moreover, the process will teach readers how to discard the earthly perspective and live from the spiritual perspective by replacing earthly love (focused on "getting") with spiritual love (focused on "giving"), and by learning the difference between earthly power (power over others) and spiritual power (the inner power to manifest one's dreams). This information is powerful and life-changing because it is not just cognitive. It has emerged from the author's own inner work and from her work with her clients. Because it comes directly from her own experiences with spiritual guidance, readers will find it remarkably and enduringly transformative. Readers will learn to discard false beliefs like: "God doesn't exist", "God exists, but not for me", "I can never be good enough to please God" and "I have to give up myself, change who I really am and surrender my personal freedom to be loved by God". Instead, readers will discover that the true key to self-actualization, success, inner peace, joy and fulfillment-whether in their careers, relationships or inner lives-- is the recognition that we each need to accept and embrace God's unconditional love for every being.Read Less
