About the Book

Disability rights advocate Darrell Lynn Jones worked for the civil rights and empowerment of people with disabilities. But she didn’t recognize her professional skills could be used to live effectively with her own chronic illness until she connected the dots between her physical journey and her spiritual journey.

The author came to see her illness as a soul journey—meaning her human traits, including chronic illness, are simply Spirit immersed in a physical experience, using time and space as a playground for creation and discovery. Becoming MySelf offers a fresh look at the new-age idea of creating your own reality and suggests the reality one already has is brimming with gifts and opportunities. This perspective helps you end the discontentment you may have concerning illness, disability, aging, and dying—and the belief that we are victims if we’re sick.

“An empowering memoir/self-help book for anyone contending with a hidden disability or chronic illness.” (Kirkus Indie Review)
