Anyone can put out an e-book these days but every now and again one comes along that truly is amazing. Inspired writing. Soulful learnings. Stunning design. Spirited, by Tara Bliss and Rachel MacDonald, is SO worth checking out. These girls have poured their heart and soul into these e-books and they are wonderful.
I’ve watched the growth of Tara and Rachel since they joined B-School at the same time I did (mid 2012) and it has been so inspiring. Whilst both had existing popular blogs, they have only started their businesses in the past year or so. Starting and growing a business ALWAYS tends to bring up your stuff. It’s one of the things I work on with my Kinesiology clients. So I know Tara and Rachel must have done some deep internal work to experience the stratospheric growth they have in the past 18 months. And it looks like they have poured much of the wisdom they’ve learnt into Spirited, to help others too.
I love how they address the “shadow side” that we all have, those part of ourselves that we often try to deny or suppress. Often we can be stuck thinking we need to judge and criticise ourselves harshly to create change and this comes up for clients often. I SO agree with Rachel and Tara that embracing these parts of ourselves can be so key to transformation:
What would you say if we told you that the parts of you that you’re hiding – the parts that judge and criticise, the fears that keep you from fulfilling your dreams – are actually your most powerful teachers?
What if we told you that you can transform your life by bringing out of the dark the parts of you that, up until now, have held you back and sabotaged your efforts to create the life you’ve always desired?
If you know you’re having a little time off over Summer, I SO recommend getting a copy of Spirited. Start to read it, print off the companion, and dive in fully when you have some free time. Use the e-books as a tool to learn more about yourself, what you want in your life and how to move forwards with greater ease.
