Firstly, the author does assert as fact that people with sensitive, gentle personality traits who find it difficult to be assertive are this way because we were sent from heaven where we lived a life of loving bliss, basically we're in shock from the harsh realities of earth life. This is stated as fact with no evidence to back it up, if this bothers you then it won't be the book for you as there is plenty more of that type to follow. Personally I gave a wry smile and carried on reading, because much as I doubt that theory her description of the 'earth angel' personality was so like me I felt the advice geared to this personality type would be worth reading. If you are familiar with the more widely accepted Myers-Briggs personality test (influenced by Jung) I identify as ISFJ and wonder how many of us 'earth angels' also do.
It is a comfort to read that one is not alone in hating conflict and violence, being naïve, thinking the best of others, people pleasing and finding it hard to be assertive.Read more ›
I personally believe based on my own personal life experiences and the experiences of clients that I have coached, that this book is perfect for anyone who has;
*been in an abusive relationship - especially having endured emotional or mental abuse
*low self esteem
*is generally a sensitive soul
* is spiritually sensitive
*can relate to being an Earth Angel (you can read Doreen's previous works "Earth Angels" and "Realms of the Earth Angels" for more information on this
If I had been given this book a year ago when I was enduring the after effects of ending an emotionally and mentally abusive relationship, I believe, hand on heart that this book would have helped me gain back my self esteem, confidence and assertiveness.
Doreen, having been an Earth Angel and Lightworker all her life has endured many trials and tribulations in her life which she has honestly shared with her millions of readers in the books she's written. In Assertiveness for Earth Angels she shares her experiences of having to become more assertive in recent years through a divorce, and also when she had clients and when she runs workshops for fellow Earth Angels. She details the difference... (You can finish reading this review here [...] )
I think this book is full of great advice on how to be assertive and stand your ground in life. It wasn't really as 'woo-woo' and 'air fairy' as I anticipated it to be. Never judge a book by it's cover!
Full of wonderful advice on how to deal with most areas of life including relationships, toxic environments, are difficult people. It is well written and I enjoyed this way more then I thought I was going to. Actually this book was read at a time when I needed to be hearing this type of information; when the student is ready the teacher will appear.
This will not be the last of Virtue's books I read as now I'm eager to see what else she has to say which is being channeled from 'higher realms' if you choose to belie that. Even if you don't believe in angels surely you believe in good advice?
