Book Review of :  The Power of Wholeness:


The Power of Wholenessby Dr. Verlaine Crawford, is the author's updated and re-published first book, Ending the Battle Within, in a new format. Verlaine is an Intuitive Whole Life coach, speaker, teacher, and writer. With fifty-five years of experience as a personal growth teacher/coach, she presents inspirational techniques to help the reader have a more productive and full life.

The Power of Wholeness is subtitled Discovering a More Fulfilling Successful and Rewarding Life. The author's self-help book uses her own unique format to present her techniques for integrating subpersonalities into an integrated, unified person who can obtain better health, abundant living, more satisfying relationships, and develop self-expression. She speaks of subpersonalities who hold opposing views, which cause conflicting parts in a person's personality and thinking. Through self-guided activities, the reader can "know thyself."

Exposed, hidden sub-personalities are discovered to be in response to negative and positive experiences. She shows how they can be balanced so that one will not dominate the other, thus avoiding being stressed, bored, sad, lonely, or depressed.

The author states that the cornerstones of life are health, wealth, love, and self-expression. She presents each of these topics in relation to awareness, emotional responses, and beliefs. She includes personal stories and real-life examples of individuals searching for better health, real or perceived wealth, truly satisfying love, and methods for developing self-expression.

The "Infusion Integration Process," which she presents as a means for integrating subpersonalities, is based on controlling the mind to achieve wholeness and a successful, fulfilling life. She points out that social media and smartphones have caused us to be lost in technology and unaware of our surroundings. She helps the readers to become more focused on understanding themselves and not depend on the thinking of others.

A discussion on intuition is informative and informs the reader that inner learning, gut reactions, and a sixth sense are essential aspects of personality. Readers are endowed with intuition and with God's creative energy.

A discussion of the power of prayer and meditation explains God's omnipotent (all-powerful), omniscient (all-knowing), and omnipresent (everywhere present) nature in our lives. Through meditation and prayer, love, wisdom, and peace in life can be obtained to eliminate the negative.

As a motivational speaker teaching personal growth and spiritual development, Verlaine Crawford is the author of several motivational self-help books that clear up negative beliefs, conflicts, and distressing past events manifesting in the reader's mind to free them toward peace and harmony in everyday life.

Crawford's insightful book will deepen your connection with yourself and empower you to conquer fear and its toxic influence on your mind. “The Power of Wholeness,” could revolutionize your thinking and unlock the tools you need to create a life of positive change.
