The Gift of Crisis

By

Approach Crisis with Self-Love, Assertiveness and Courage

You are not alone: Since the start of the recession, 8.8 million jobs have been lost, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Bridgitte Jackson-Buckley was one of those 8.8 million people who lost their jobs. Between 2007 and 2014, she was also one of 7.3 million homeowners who lost their homes to foreclosure. Some affected by job loss and foreclosure, due to the economic downturn, were able to bounce back relatively emotionally unscathed. Many, however, internalized the outer events as a negative reflection of their personal capacities without taking a deeper look at the crisis as a potential underlying catalyst. In The Gift of Crisis, Bridgitte shows you how to explore crisis as a tool for courageous change, regaining your self-esteem with self-love and self-compassion.

Regain control with assertiveness: Although a personal economic crisis can be viewed as an externally-influenced event that is somehow both beyond your control and within your control, it can also be an opportunity to examine the conscious and sub-conscious conditions that brought the experience into your life. It was through experiences of prolonged financial crisis that Bridgitte realized she subconsciously co-created experiences that felt so bad until the only place she could go was within—exactly where she needed to go. In The Gift of Crisis, you will discover how helpful going within and retaking control can be for you, too.

Find space for spiritual growth: The Gift of Crisis will show how repeated crises can serve as a catalyst to reveal the underlying purpose, and how questions posed during a meditative state can reveal answers in the direction of a higher purpose. For women and men who are sincerely interested in spiritual growth, yet find it difficult to make “mental room” to dedicate to such growth due to personal distractions, this inspirational book will demonstrate the practical manner in which meditation and prayer can assist during any type of crisis as a means of reaching for a calmer, clearer, more courageous and purposeful life.

The Gift of Crisis interposes personal stories and prescriptive ideas amidst ongoing financial destitution to raise your self-esteem, self-compassion and self-love. In reading this book, you will learn how to:

  • Deepen your trust in a Higher Intelligence and in your higher purpose
  • Welcome change and embrace change with courage
  • Focus your attention on the emergence of new possibilities as a result of the crisis

If you liked Brené Brown’s inspirational book The Gifts of Imperfection, you’ll love The Gift of Crisis.

Keep Pain in the Past

By

Heal psychological wounds on your own

Move on from the emotional trauma of your past: Contrary to what many people believe, we can recover from emotional trauma relatively quickly and completely on our own, without thousands of dollars spent on therapists. Whether it’s extreme trauma such as sexual abuse or the horrors of war or less dramatic, but psychologically speaking just as serious wounds involving shame and guilt, we don’t need to spend years in intensive therapy to recover. Keep Pain in the Past explains a process that allows you to do most, if not all, of the recovery on your own.

Train yourself in psychological self-healing: While most people know what they can do on their own to treat physical ills—like using ice on a muscle sprain—they don’t realize that they can apply certain psychological principles to treat anxiety, depression and many other conditions. Keep Pain in the Past will teach you the critical 21st century skill of treating psychological wounds on your own.

Treat yourself and heal old wounds: As much as people may suspect that some trauma from their past is affecting them negatively, they struggle to do anything about it. They take refuge in denial, avoidance or addictions rather than grapple with that long-ago emotional pain—because honestly, surfacing that pain hurts. Keep Pain in the Past will help you identify and face this pain and find closure on your own. Use Dr. Chris Cortman’s easy-to-master method to remember, feel, express, release, and reframe the trauma that has been haunting you for years.

Learn from the success of others: Follow their example in healing yourself. Discover how Sheri, a 37-year-old attorney, recovered from panic attacks that seemed to come out of nowhere. Follow the journey of Mark, a 29-year-old Army veteran who experienced the horror of war in Afghanistan, as he healed from the downward spiral that had caused him to lose his job and become increasingly uncommunicative with his family. Explore how Melinda, a 42-year-old professor who struggled to sustain a romantic relationship, confronted her torturous childhood and has now found love that is still going strong after three years.

Keep Pain in the Past achieves what conventional therapy does not. After reading this book, you will be able to:

  • Confront the emotional baggage of your past
  • Reach closure by completing the event
  • Discover a life unhaunted by the trauma of your past

Flipping the Script

#1 Amazon New Release! – Stories to Help You Persevere

Live Through the Hardships: Life is complicated and messy, but every now and then life gives you a syndicated talk show on a major network – and then fires you for being “all icing and no cake.”  Then it sends your born-again Christian sister to take you out to lunch on your birthday, only to tell you she suddenly believes you can pray the gay away and that you should’ve used your time on the show do more for Christ.  Then, because there’s always another “then,” you receive a tax bill from Uncle Sam that almost sends you out your tenth-floor bathroom window…literally.  Luckily, AJ Gibson chose to step back and share his struggles because, well…not today Satan!  He knows what it’s like when life feels like a never-ending roller coaster, and in his self-help book Flipping the Script, he doesn’t sugar coat the truth.  After all, this isn’t Hollywood, errr…anymore.

Know You’re Not Alone: AJ’s journey from a closeted gay boy from Ohio to that guy people kinda, sorta recognize from TV and Hollywood seems glossy, but the truth is anything but.  In Flipping the Script, AJ shows how his life has been a series of personal roadblocks and rock bottom moments.  Every time he thinks he’s in the clear, he finds a new way to crash and burn.  Let’s just say insecurity was once a pretty close friend of his, so he knows what you feel like whenever you find yourself scrolling social media comparing yourself to others.  Luckily, he’s a pretty smart guy and moderately witty, always finding his way out of life’s rock bottom moments – and you can too!

Turn Bad Situations Around: AJ has a gift for shifting his perspective, turning crappy situations around and finding a way to persevere each time the world seems to be telling him he was born to fail.  Through all of the mess, all of the hardships, he somehow manages to keep a smile on his face and a roof over his head.  He also knows that we all have problems and he’s here to help.  The true stories in Flipping the Script will make you laugh, encourage you to keep fighting for happiness and inspire you to turn your own rock bottom moments into your proudest accomplishments!

Feel Empowered: AJ’s “Hollywood” situation may be unique, but his struggles are definitely relatable.  After all, you’d be hard-pressed to find a person who has achieved success without problems – especially in the LGBTQ community.  As a proud gay man working in the entertainment capital of the world, AJ’s personal and professional stories will leave you feeling empowered and a little less defeated.  Flipping the Script will give you the strength to overcome your own personal roadblocks.  In his book, AJ shares tips and tricks in the form of “Script Rewrites” at the end of each chapter that will help you persevere and find your true purpose. 

Flipping the Script will rip your heart out, make you want to fight somebody, and leave you feeling like you can solve world hunger – all in a single chapter.  You will:

  • feel deeply connected, knowing you’re not alone in your struggles
  • have simple, real world tools to help you bounce back and live the life you were created to live
  • see yourself as the wonderful, creative, capable human being that you have always been – but forgot somewhere along the way

Living An Orgasmic Life

By

#1 Amazon Best Seller! ─ Heal Your Relationship with Sex

Overcome your discomfort: Living An Orgasmic Life is written for anyone who finds sex challenging or feels uncomfortable with their sex life. Women who are alienated from their erotic side due to sexual abuse or trauma will find healing balm in these pages. Women who can’t surrender into pleasure, can’t sustain intimacy, or want to reclaim and feel empowered in their sexuality will greatly benefit from this book.

Awaken your sexuality: Challenges with sexuality are all too common in our society and not frequently discussed in an open and thoughtful manner. In Living An Orgasmic Life, Xanet Pailet explores the many reasons that cause women to disconnect from their sexuality including: shame, body image issues, sexual abuse and trauma, physical wounding, and fears of intimacy. She teaches practical advice and tools to help women awaken to their sexuality in a healthy way and reclaim their libido.

Add sex back into your marriage: According to the National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior, 20% of married couples are only having sex once a month—that’s considered a sexless marriage. And those numbers are likely significantly under-reported and do not account for the large number of women and men who stay in their marriage for other reasons (e.g. money, children) but have completely unsatisfying sex lives. Even so, the number of reported sexless marriages has quadrupled in the last 20 years. Living An Orgasmic Life is filled with lessons and practical exercises that can take your sex life from non-existent or mediocre to fulfilling on every level.

Author Xanet Pailet notes: “I wrote this book because I am passionate about helping individuals who feel broken reclaim their sexuality and their pleasure, and transform their lives. I want women who are struggling with sex to understand that help is available and that they can have healthy, passionate sex lives. I wrote this book for the 20 year old who was date raped, the 30 year old mom who was traumatized during childbirth, the 40 year old divorced women who has never experienced an orgasm, the 50 year old who is struggling with menopause and low libido, and the 60 plus year old women who is ready to explore her sexuality and experience orgasmic bliss.” No matter the situation of your love life, Living An Orgasmic Life can help you rediscover the joy and pleasure of sex.

Living An Orgasmic Life is a must read if you desire a better relationship with your partner, juicier sex and more passion in your love life. After reading this book, you will learn:

  • Why it’s so hard to talk about sex in a world where everything is about sex
  • The #1 reason women lose their desire for sex and what to do about it
