5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational, thought provoking and even a tad irreverant. 30 Dec 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
In November,1994, was wife and I were involved in a motor vehicle accident which left her a C-6 quad. Ever since the accident I have attempted to create a life which may have resembled that which we used to enjoy yet I was never quite able to find the "magic bullet". When I read the review of Heidi's book I felt I had nothing to loose but to purchase it. I have to tell you, it was Good Medicine! My wife poured through the book several times and with each reading felt more inspired to never end for quest for the cure. In addition to a renewed zeal to live life again Kathleen began to exercise religiously and see progressas aeach week passed. kathleen continues to this day to inform me that "Heidi would do this each day and eventually........" In a nutshell "My Soul Purppose" is a painfully truthful account of a young woman who has sustained an injury which only those who too have sustained a SCI can have an appreciation for her personal tale. Rather than painting a picture of woe Heidi provides personal experiences which provides hope and inspirastion for those individuals who have sustained a SCI. To see the smile and sense the inner peace which my wife experienced as she read "My Soul Purpose" made me accutely aware that the healing which occurs after a SCI is clearly more spiritual than physical. Suffice it is to say that this book has provided the direction to heal the psyche, now it is just a matter of being patient for the rest of the healing to occur!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and Motivating 4 July 2001

Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just finished this book, and I would recommend it to anyone with a spinal injury, especially those who were once athletic. If you ever feel like "giving up", then you MUST read this book!! Matter of fact, I plan to read it again. Inspiring! The book reminded me I MUST keep moving!! Never stop!! Don't give up!!! As long as you keep moving, you'll get better, day by day. Don't ever let the "inner you" die; for THAT INNER SPIRIT is what will keep you and your body alive, and make life meaningful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Champion! 18 Sep 2005
By Sandra L. Aumiller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Heidi's account of her on-going quest to comeback from paralysis is a beautiful statement of her courage, intelligence and spiritual knowledge. I finally got around to reading this book that a friend gave me and I am so glad I did. What she has to say is a message for all of us. A message on inner peace of understanding how we truly work...physically, emotionally, spiritually, mentally. She is a remarkable woman to not give up and to understand that the physical is just one element of who we are. Do yourself a favor and read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Heidi-your mother was right! 11 April 2012

I purchased Heidi's book in 1996 when I watched a TV interview with Heidi during her book tour. Something struck a cord. Little did I know that 16 years later I would read the book no less than once a year and refer to Heidi and her "support system" experiences. I developed an immune disorder in 1992 during an industrial exposure at my work site (hospital). In January 2012, I was prescribed a medication and within three weeks began to develop severe side effects. They were vast, and as I am atypical in my response to medications and emotional triggers, my health care providers were adamant that my problems could not be related to the medication. I discontinued taking it and according to the drug manufacturer it leaves one's system within 48 hours. I knew better. I went to the FDA website and did the research. BINGO! I drew upon Heidi's book and went back to basics: advocated for myself with clinicians, listened to my body and did not reach for a "quick fix" which short circuits Mother Nature. And all these steps are starting to work for me. Of course I consult with qualified health care professionals, but Heidi's book is both compelling and in my opinion a "life saver". It would be my dearest wish to be able to contact Heidi and let her know how much she is in my thoughts. I am sorry for the passing of your parents. Thank you Heidi for helping me find my Soul's Purpose in every way. Love, Barb
