Alex Noble: If part of your life is breaking down, you can be sure that other parts of your life are breaking through. Nothing dies, but that something is being born. There is no crisis without an equivalent opportunity. The genius that resides in each of us has the wisdom, strength and capacity to turn sorrow into joy, and find a way out of even the most devastating disasters. At times when we are overwhelmed with the magnitude of our problems, it is helpful to have a loving Guardian Angel Guide to shine light on our path, and even take our hand to lead us forward into peace and salvation. I can think of no better guide for this journey from despair to hope and a new life than Daphne Rose Kingma. Daphne's latest book, The Ten Things to Do When Your Life Falls Apart, is full of loving counsel and practical tools: Things you can DO to work through the chaos you are facing. Using this book in conjunction with your journal practice can produce astonishing results.
Certainly, there is nothing like a life-crisis to send us into our journals, and if it feels as though your own life is falling apart, use Daphne's book as a resource for unlocking your feelings and emotions and charting your journey into stability, sanity and light.

The 10 Things to Do When Your Life Falls Apart: A Spiritual and Emotional Handbook
Known primarily for books on relationships (Coming Apart), Kingma’s latest is a lifeline for those in the isolating depths of personal tragedy. Its purpose is to hold, to heal, and to listen, and it comes from a very real place: a friend of the author’s in the midst of physical and financial hardships asked for a list of 10 practices to survive his crisis. With chapters dedicated to the necessity of tears, the freedom of letting go, and the fulfillment found in simple living, these techniques are all about practicality. Realistic indeed, yet underlying the straightforward advice is an enlivening spiritual message that isn’t content with just soldiering on through the darkness. “Rather than being random assaults from an uncaring universe, the difficulties you are going through have meaning and purpose,” the author writes. Kingma relates her worldly and spiritual survival tools in graceful prose and includes illustrative, though somewhat broad, real-life stories of people who rise above catastrophe. This work is about more than just getting by; it directs the reader toward transcendence and peace. (April, 2010)
