Nicole Lawrence bravely shares the limiting beliefs and patterns that were created in the wake of her troubled childhood in her powerful memoir, Doors to Transformation: My Mother – My Self. While each of our childhoods are different, I believe we all have traumas that may still be affecting us in our lives as adults.
This book offered me insights into how to become aware of negative patterns formed in the past and provided inspiration to go through the process of transformation.
Nicole’s “you can do it too” attitude comes from sharing her success in processing emotions and creating new patterns and also in providing the resources she used to accomplish her healing. She offers discovery questions and exercises to help the reader dig deep, uncover painful emotions, release them, and learn to make changes.
How does one face, feel and release pain? Nicole offers her tried-and-true method of reflecting on memories of traumatic experiences, then releasing emotions about what occurred and what did not occur, and examining the conclusions that you then drew about yourself, the other person and the world because of these experiences.
Nicole touchingly recounts how her mother neglected her as a child, leaving her feeling unloved and unlovable, and shares how she did her “emotional work” and learned to trust herself and others more and not follow exhausting patterns to receive outside approval.
The journey to forgiveness of things from our past and the journey to self-love is a universal challenge that this book can assist everyone with. Giving thanks to Nicole Lawrence for opening the door to show us the way.
An artist as well as a writer, Nicole views life as running in cycles and spirals, comprising the healing journeys we undertake as a regular part of our lives. This book is part of a healing cycle for her. She hopes it inspires others to push through their own journeys of healing.
