Perfect Bound Softcover(B/W)
What are our deepest, darkest emotions? How did we get them? How do we get rid of them? These emotions that hold us back in life, preventing us from achieving our personal happiness, hopes, and dreams. The uncontrollable urges and negative feelings of anger, rage, anxiety, fear, paranoia, frustration, dissociation, and chaos ruling our daily lives bringing to us, and drawing into our world, more of the same. How did we get to this point? How do we get out?
This is the author’s personal story of emotional childhood neglect responsible for both her near death at age five and ultimately the terrible, tragic death of its littlest family member. It describes a chaotic household combining a psychopathic mother, a domineered father, parties, alcohol, and prescription drugs. It tells of the journey to heal from such a past and how this traumatic history negatively impacted her life and decisions resulting in stumbles, poor decisions, broken relationships, and the terrifying experience of being married, for the first time, to another psychopath.
It is a story of healing, hope, and discovery and how she finally becomes a Trauma Touch Therapist. It connects the dots of how we get to that place of suffering from PTSD after trauma and why. She explains from personal experience, study, and working with trauma survivors what works best and why many therapies today are ineffective. Valuable secrets are uncovered on how to extricate yourself and successfully recover from trauma in a safe, organic, and comprehensive way and why this has been hidden from us. It is written and shared from the heart and reveals, at last, Secrets to Tame a Mystical Dragon. It is possible to un-create that which was created!
"My early years were a harsh reality. I wished for the warm cuddles of a mother, the smell of cookies baking in a pretty kitchen, a beautiful garden with a swing, nice smelling flowers, green grass to lie in and a strong father who could keep us all intact. These wants and needs appealed to my hyper-sensitive nature and the security I craved would have calmed me. What I got instead, was something quite different." "I finally left my country of birth with a back-pack containing two jeans, some t-shirts, a pair of tennis shoes, a bikini, a jacket, a good Pentax camera and a whole lot more of hard-fought-for wisdom. The last thing I saw as we sailed away was the majestic Table Mountain. I sat on the deck with mixed emotions and watched it till I could see it no more, then I turned my head forwards to the future and a new life. It felt like the world was lifted from my shoulders." "It takes bravery and a warrior spirit to wrestle back our lives from the claws and jaws of the mystical dragon but well worth the effort in the end! To be able to move forward in life again feeling free and light and 'unstuck' together with power, vitality and joy....what happiness and what a victory!" "And so this book was written for those frustrated trauma survivors who have had their pathway to complete healing blocked one way or another. If you have not been receiving the knowledge you need to progress in your healing, it is my hope that now you can become more pro-active in your own treatments, armed with powerful information. Now you have a choice." "For the trauma survivors, say it is not enough to just survive, shout out, "I want and need and deserve to THRIVE!" You really can do this, it is your right! Now you have had placed in your hands some powerful tools and weapons....Secrets to Tame a Mystical Dragon."
The author was born in South Africa, but after experiencing a traumatic childhood, an abusive marriage, and the infamous 1976 Soweto riots, she fled by crossing the Atlantic Ocean on a yacht bound for America. She now resides in Carlsbad, California. This is her personal story and first book.
Guinevere is a godsend to anyone seeking a true release from the horrors of PTSD and any trauma. I went to her as a patient after trying various "traditional" treatment and therapy. I read her book and would highly recomend it to anyone seeking freedom from the bondage of trauma induced problems of any sort. Wonderful book, wonderful therapist, wonderful human being
