“There are times when … the mountains feel too high to climb … We find ourselves pressing forward only through the strength of unexplained determination.”
Taming The Invisible Dragon, written by Sloan Rawlins, is a fascinating, well written, and inspiring spiritual transformational journey to healing, happiness and self-realization.
Her journey from its’ beginning became a crossroad between the person she had been and the person she wanted to be. It was her “great escape from self-imposed bondage and the breaking dawn of liberation.”
She writes that “There are millions of people in transition today. They are in the process of self-discovery and spiritual transformation.” I am personally on that same path and her book, filled with personally acquired wisdom, has helped me to stay on my own course and tame the invisible dragon within me. Her writing helps us to set “our inner guidance system in a new direction.” Understanding “free will” is one of the patterns to that success.
The exercises she teaches helps us to take back personal power through understanding self-responsibility, forgiveness and accountability.
“At the center of your being
you have the answer;
you know who you are
and you know what you want.”
This is not another self-help book full of theory and guidelines, but a humble personal testimony of struggles that we each may encounter in one form or another. It is the honest, self-exposed journey of a overcomer.
I have experienced some of her struggles and find them useful in taming the invisible dragon within me. I agree with her, that the journey is not quick or easy, but a life long process with its’ own ups and downs.
I was glad to find a person who was able to articulate things and feeling in a way I could never do with such clarity. She assures the reader they are not alone in their transformational journey and there is “magnificent light on the other side of what they are currently experiencing.”
Some of you may know that I lost my brother back in December. What you don’t know, is that he actually died on October 31, 2013 and his live in girlfriend left instructions that no one in his family was to be told of his death until after she died on December 19th. Both deaths were due to long-term illnesses. His we knew about, hers we didn’t.
The way I found out was when the police from another state called me on the night of the 19th and informed me of her death. All traces of my brother’s existence in their home had been removed and the police knew nothing about him. It was then, through some investigation, that I found out about his death.
Unanswered questions has haunted me for the last few months. Reading Sloan’s book helped me to get back on the path of self-inventory and accountability. Not assigning blame to anyone is the key to forgiveness and healing. Reading her book helped me process and get through a very trying time. I had to wear a mask in order to cover up the hurt I was living through. Removing the mask was my step towards recovery.
Thank you Sloan Rawlins for your honest and inspiring words of encouragement that inspires us to become a better person as we travel this journey and stay on course towards authentic happiness.
I give this book five stars. It is a must read for those who have the desire and determination to heal their wounds, to change their thoughts, and to create better tomorrows.
