Sometimes in life, a person may feel the need to revisit or make amends for events from their youth. Seeking… Finding… Healing...: The Complete Guide to Self-Directed Inner Family Healing by Becky Lu Jackson is a non-fiction book that illustrates how the author overcame her addictions by making peace with her past traumas and embracing her present. As the author embarked on her healing journey, she developed several tools that she used in the book. The book is divided into parts where seeking, preparation, learning, and healing are addressed using the tools the author has developed to discover harmony and healing. Becky has included several writing exercises and meditations that one can be use in the healing process. The author has used the inner child concept in this book to deal with whatever struggles she was going through. The inner child concept, merged with what the author has termed the inner family, has been used in a step-by-step guide to finding, nurturing, listening to, and conversing with oneself to find healing. If you are struggling with an addiction and desire to reconnect with your past, please grab a copy of this book to learn how she achieved deep healing using the insights she discovered.
I found several positive things in this book, but one that I give the author so much respect for is that she allowed herself to be vulnerable by sharing her life story and some of her clients' stories with the public. This made the book so real, as one would be able to relate to real-life situations. I also love the exercises and diagrams that she included in the book; this made the book so engaging and easier to use. This book offers an alternative to counseling for some traumas.
This book was not straightforward, and therefore, it took me some time to understand and grasp how the concept worked. As mentioned at the beginning of Part III of Chapter 12, it was difficult to continue at this point as I did not fully understand the foundational work, hence having to read the proceeding part again.
I have no doubt this book was professionally edited, apart from a few errors. I found this book useful and applied it to my life, and it positively impacted my life. I rate this book four out of five stars.
I recommend this book to anyone who is suffering from some type of addiction and is seeking healing. It would also apply to anyone wanting to make peace with their past traumas while healing anything negative and building on the positive aspects of their life.
