About the Book

Human life is a gift. The human mind is a powerful tool we each have to create what we want with the gift of our human experience. What sets a master craftsman apart is their expert use of the tools of their craft. To use the tool of your mind as an expert, you need to understand how it works and practice using the tool to gain control. Through my study and practice I have put together tools and a process to help you to practice using the tool of your mind every minute to improve your mastery. Expert practical use of ideas such as mindfulness, meditation, visualization, and learning to choose with awareness and self-control will change your experience of life. Many people go through life reacting to life’s situations then wondering why they find themselves in the same painful situations over and over again. Feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, and angry many people feel victimized and out of control. This process helps you get control of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors so you are empowered to be the master craftsman of your life. The first step is getting to know yourself. You need to gain awareness of both the conscious and subconscious aspects of your mind. You need to know how your thoughts, feelings, attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors work together to create your experience. Once you have gained awareness, you get to choose what you want to create. Then, just as an athlete trains his body, you train your mind for control and mastery. Change may not be easy but it is possible. You are the hero of your own adventure. If you become your best self, the world will be a better place. Your life is a terrible thing to waste.


About the Author

Always fascinated by the human experience, I followed my passion to achieve a Bachelor’s Degree in in Human Development and a Master’s of Science Degree in Counseling Psychology. I have a private counseling and coaching practice in suburban Kansas City. I have created and adapted tools for a process of self-healing and personal change from my work with people in correctional facilities and my private clients including military Veterans and people suffering from addictions, abusive relationships, family issues, and everyday stress. You are the hero of your own adventure, but you need navigational tools and maybe a little magic to give you courage and confidence. Some of these tools are ancient practices that I have updated. Some of these tools come from the latest research. I have used these tools and this process in my own life to build and repair relationships and to grow and to develop into a fuller potential of myself. These ideas and practices have added richness and satisfaction to my life and the lives of my clients. As a single mother of two adult sons, my family has grown to include daughters-in-law and grandchildren. This process is a valuable part of my everyday life. My hope is that my readers will find the value of the simple practicality in this process. Making lasting changes in one’s life is not easy, but possible with the rights tools.
