About the Book

Here I Am: Lessons Learned is the reflection on a personal journey and how in everyone’s journey there are lessons to learn. If we bring our lessons together and we understand what has happened to us in experiencing our lives as a child, trusting that everyone was doing the best they could at the time, we can begin to make sense about those times. To validate our present, we continue using those memories as “templates” to live our lives. Many times, those templates bring us bad memories, but we continue believing that it is all there is. Research in brain development has shown us that we can rewire those memories and make sense of what happened to us from the adult versus the child perspective. Then we can begin to create our own fulfilling journey. Lessons Learned contains powerful messages from the author and also from participants of empowerment seminars who have learned to rewire their brains and began to look at their lives from different lenses, once they have understood the power of their memories and how those memories are no longer supporting them. Lessons Learned provides you with twenty-two awareness exercises that can help you find the rewarding balance we are all seeking in life. The lessons can assist you in freeing yourself from your own emotional traps and moving you toward a more fulfilling and rewarding life journey.
