One Day My Soul Just Opened Up
40 Days and 40 Nights Toward Spiritual Strength and Personal Growth
This is the book that puts everything you have seen or heard on the hit Oprah Winfrey Network show Iyanla: Fix My Life, One Day My Soul Just Opened Up into the palm of your hands. One Day is a program of inspiration and motivation that will help you work through problems and improve your emotional and spiritual health.
Through exercises and readings, Iyanla provides you with the tools to tap into your strengths and make your dreams come true. One Day My Soul Just Opened Up will open your mind, heart, and soul to the truth of your identity as a creative and powerful being.
This book has been very powerful for me, and is effortless to incorporate into even a busy life. There are so many good books on spirituality, but this one is unique because it breaks down many universal spiritual principles into concise daily readings, with sections on “Honoring Yourself,” “Honoring Others,” “Honoring the Process,” “Honoring Your Feelings,” and more. Within each section, each day has one spiritual principle you read about, and has a short space for you to write your own take about what you’ve read. It also has a space to reflect at the end of the day any experiences you’ve had relating to that principle (don’t worry, it’s not a huge journal-type project – all the writing takes me less than 5 minutes a day, and adds immensely to the power of the program). Because my time is so tight in the morning, I do the reading the night before. (The readings are short – most only 3 pages.) I’m about halfway through the 40 days, and my soul is opening up, and I find myself looking forward to my nightly reading, as an inspiring and relaxing ritual.
