The 32 Keys: Awakening to Soul by Gayle Swift is a wonderful resource for implementing self healing by utilizing simple steps aimed at more optimal coping. The presentation emphasizes self reflection, relaxation, defining your purpose in life, being comfortable with the unknown, journalizing experiences and a process flow orientation.
The author creates a map of the soul consisting of the heart, mind, thoughts, the physical side of life, energy flows and emotions. The purpose is to use the circle to identify aspects of your being that limit you in the conduct of daily life. Specific keys deal with personal thoughts and feelings. Examples of these keys are awareness, compassion, discipline, gratitude, healing, introspection, letting go, among others.
There are at least eight primary practices that bring people closer to the spiritual dimension. Examples of these include grounding, centering, prayer, breathing, imagination, and receptivity.
According to the author, the inner soul struggles with questions involving the identity, purpose in life, likes, dislikes, passions, and personal gifts. Once these issues have been resolved, the individual becomes immune to negativity, grudges, blame, polarization, and controlling behaviors or manifestations.
Swift’s presentation has a classic scientific underpinning. Entropy relates to the second law of thermodynamics. The concept refers to the amount of chaos, uncertainty, and disorder present. The presence of these conditions leads to the needless dissipation of energy, stress, and disharmony.
The 32 Keys: Awakening to Soul is a valuable resource for individuals to learn how to cope with life itself. The presentation is easy to understand.
