*Recognize and understand the significant transitions, turning points, and wake-up calls on your path
*Transform fear into courage, confusion and into vision, and self-doubt into confidence
*Turn what appear to be dead ends into doorways
*Reclaim your passion and purpose for living and loving

Written with Barbara De Angelis' trademark eloquence, honesty and compassion, and containing the treasures of her own thirty-five year quest for enlightenment, HOW DID I GET HERE is a more than uplifting, intimate and moving--it is a true transformational manual for achieving emotional and spiritual rebirth that will change your life.
Relationship expert De Angelis (What Women Want Men To Know) strikes to the core of human malaise, showing readers how to deal with inevitable disappointments in love, health, family, and finance. Using personal experience and client examples, she gently leads them through confusion and fear to a clarity of purpose and courage to start over. A particularly interesting chapter lists the "payoffs" one gets from remaining confused, such as getting to play the martyr, staying addicted, and avoiding the truth. This is a well-written, inspiring book with the potential to help many. Highly recommended. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 1/05.] Hypnotist McKenna and psychotherapist Willbourn, meanwhile, zero in on one life disappointment: a broken heart. Their natural recovery techniques, which are designed to help readers reestablish emotional equilibrium and change the neurochemicals in their mind and body, include "reimagining your ex," "white it out," and "the friendly mirror." The authors also provide helpful responses to many situations wherein the heartbroken can come unglued, e.g., seeing one's ex with another person and getting drawn into a fight. While it's unlikely that anyone will read this book from cover to cover and complete all the exercises, there is some genuinely helpful advice here. Recommended for larger libraries.
