About Debbie Ford
Customers Also Bought Items By
Debbie Ford believes that we each hold within us a trace of every human characteristic that exists, the capacity for every human emotion. We are born with the ability to express this entire spectrum of characteristics. But, Ford points out, our families and our society send us strong messages about which ones are good and bad. So when certain impulses arise, we deny them instead of confronting them, giving them a healthy voice, then letting them go.
It is to these feelings that Ford turns our attention, these parts of our selves that don't fit the personae we have created for the rest of the world. She shows us the effects of living in the dark, of keeping all our supposedly unsavory impulses under wraps. We find ourselves disproportionately frustrated and angry at the selfishness of friends, the laziness of colleagues, the arrogance of siblings. When we are unable to reconcile similar impulses in ourselves, Ford explains, we waste our own energy judging others instead of empathizing. But most important, we deny ourselves the power and freedom of living authentically.
Through the stories and exercises in The Dark Side of the Light Chasers, Debbie Ford shows us not only how to recognize our hidden emotions, but also how to find the gifts they offer us. This is for fans of Marianne Williamson, Neale Donald Walsch, and Deepak Chopra. The very impulses we most fear may be the key to what is lacking in our lives.
New York Times number–one bestselling author Debbie Ford presents revolutionary questions that, when answered with complete honesty, change the way we see ourselves and make decisions – ultimately moving us toward the life we desire.
The realities of the life we live today are a result of the choices we made yesterday, three months ago and three years ago. But we don't wind up $50,000 dollars in debt because of one extravagant purchase. Nor do we put on 30 unwanted pounds as a result of a couple of decadent meals. And our relationships certainly don't fall apart overnight because of one decision. We are where we are because of repeated unconscious choices made day after day. If we want to understand why and how we created our present day reality, all we need to do is look at the choices we made in the past. Ford cuts right through our denial with the 10 questions that immediately reveal the true motivations behind our thoughts and actions. But more than that, by rigorously and honestly asking and answering these 10 vital questions, we regain control and have the power necessary to create the life we always wanted.
Introduction by Marianne Williamson
Foreword by Arielle Ford
A recently discovered unpublished work by the beloved spiritual teacher and #1 New York Times bestselling author in which she reflects on the astonishing holiness that resides in each of us.
"What you are seeking at the deepest level exists inside of you, in the quietude of your own inner world, in the privacy of your own sweet heart. So now it’s your responsibility, your holy responsibility, to encode your consciousness with thoughts, feelings and images that will support you in creating the perfect internal environment to cultivate a deep and intimate relationship with the one you call God. This is the force that loves you, cheers for you and wants it all for you. In a world where love leaves as quickly as it comes, you can rest now, knowing that you have found a love that will never leave you, never misguide you and never ever let you down. My advice, dear friend, is take great care of that Love. It will give you everything you’ve been looking for."

Many of us spend our days thinking, talking and dreaming about what our lives could be like 'if only ...'. We make resolutions, we follow a new diet, we start exercise routines – we begin working on our lifelong goals and then we give up, get too busy and forget about what's truly important to us. Another year passes by and our dreams remain out of reach. But what if today you discovered that the life you've always wanted is right in front of you, well within your grasp? Are you ready to live it?
Debbie Ford not only answers these questions but offers a proven, practical blueprint for making today – this moment – the beginning of the best year of your life.
Neben den lichtvollen Seiten gehört zu unserer Persönlichkeit auch der „Schatten“ – Charakterzüge, die wir nicht wahrhaben wollen und daher verdrängen. Aber erst wenn wir unsere Schattenseiten anerkennen und heilen, können wir Zufriedenheit, innere Ausgeglichenheit und tiefes Wohlbefinden empfinden, können wir wahrhaft ganz werden. Praxisbezogen und lebendig ermutigt Debbie Ford jeden, sich den Abgründen und Ängsten der eigenen Psyche zu stellen.
Warum fühlen sich viele Frauen oft unsicher, kraftlos und voller Ängste? Nicht selten haben sie sich von äußeren Umständen und dem Willen anderer Menschen abhängig gemacht. Debbie Ford führt Frauen, die selbstbestimmt und frei leben wollen, auf den Weg der »Liebevollen Kriegerin«: gleichermaßen stark und kämpferisch wie zärtlich und feinfühlig zu sein. Eine Frau, die auf ihre innere Stimme vertraut, hat es nicht nötig, sich äußeren Erwartungen oder unerreichbaren Idealvorstellungen zu unterwerfen. Sie stellt sich selbstbewusst der eigenen Wahrheit und entwickelt ihr innerstes Potenzial. Dies wird insbesondere durch den eigenen Lebensbericht der Autorin deutlich. Sie schildert in schonungsloser Offenheit, wie sie selbst tiefe Lebenskrisen meisterte. Darüber hinaus bietet Debbie Ford den Leserinnen zahlreiche praktische Anregungen und Empfehlungen für den Alltag und motiviert jede Frau, die Weichen zu stellen für die eigene glückliche und erfüllte Zukunft.
