REALIZE YOUR POWER AND CREATIVITY THROUGH EXPLORATION OF THE FEMININE
It is vitally important that every woman makes the effort to bring forth their feminine side and the feminine qualities of God. We must learn to honor ourselves. Only then will we draw honor and respect to us. This does not mean that we will lose respect for men or our masculine traits, but rather that we bring balance to our lives and understand more fully the gifts of our creativity. We must open our hearts so that we literally become love, touching every person we encounter.

These ten commitments will bring forth your authentic self and you will become significant in the world, feeling successful and whole.

This book will open new doors to your life. Simply reading it won't be enough, you have to delve into it with your heart and soul, sort of like how Susanne Blake tells you to live your life... with heart and soul.
This "How To" book is very unique. There is no preaching about how you messed up and how you should change. Instead, Ms. Blake takes the approach of teaching you how to love yourself from deep within. Finding the real you. Finding your "Self". Finding a new life, by making a conscious decision to live your life from deep within.
What I enjoyed most about the book was that at the end of each chapter, the author not only produces a simple, well explained plan of how to put her words into action so you can make life changing decisions but she also provides questions and a work area to bring your actions full circle. You're not only becoming aware of more intense you, but you're seeing it in black and white.
In the beginning Blake comments on how, as a baby, we are given literally a brain with all this knowledge of what God wants us to know. While we have no clue at that time that we have it, nor do we know how to use it, it's still there. She suggests taking a picture of yourself as a baby and posting it up so you can see it daily. Look into the eyes of that child and see the simplicity and depth it reflects. That is the true you, your true Self. That is what you want to go back and feel. Before anyone told you how to feel or how to act. Before anyone fed you their beliefs and ideas. The core within that was untouched by anyone but the maker Himself. That is where you want to be again, to achieve pure happiness and purpose to your life.
One of my favorite areas of the book had to do with women and relationships. Not just "romantic" relationships, although they are a part of it, but the other relationships in your life. The people you choose for friends. The people you choose to be with. The people you choose to love or hate. Ms. Blake discusses our sometimes poor judgment in relationships that we tend to repeat over and over again. She shows you how to approach these relationships, whether they're romantic or platonic, and view them from 4 very real areas - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. The author discusses ridding yourself of these 'bad' relationships to help yourself become whole again and while she does tell you how to do it, she also supplies means of achieving this level of happiness by giving you exercises to do that will bring you one step closer to happiness. I personally think that our relationships are a huge majority of who we are and what we become, and when surrounded by people who pull you down and bring you into an area of unhappiness, you will never become fully alive deep within.
The author gives a deep, rational and valid explanation of how to literally become the person you were born to be. She shows you how to work at being content with life and with your life's decisions. The end results can only be wonderful, giving you a sense of self-worth, power, success and inner peace. By making the decisions that make you happy, you will make everyone around you happier also. Putting yourself before others, those on your list of priorities that have always come first, will help make you a more complete and content person. Not only will you benefit from the changes that will take place after putting her words into practice, but those around you will benefit from finding the REAL you. Blake not only tells you how to find your own happiness but holds your hand along the way to make sure you achieve it.

The intent of this book is to transform the life of the reader and to improve their relationships. The focus is on learning to know yourself, finding balance, prioritizing, and taking a look at the negatives and positives in your life. Blake integrates the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of life in finding solutions, in healing, and in making wise choices. Susanne relates how imbalance in your life draws difficulties to an already stressful situation. She helps the reader produce a more balanced life through "centeredness". By making these ten commitments you can replace chaos in your life with peace and harmony. You can become an agent of change, a visionary, and in control of your own self development.
Each chapter presents a concept of commitment followed by an exercise designed to produce positive results. A set of questions help stimulate new thinking and self-discovery. Completion of these exercises and carefully answering the questions will help the reader to develop the virtues of courage, wisdom, fortitude, and generosity. These exercises are designed to be completed individually or with a friend. You will find that by applying Susanne's principles will become an exploration into self actualization, wholeness, and creativity.
Susanne shares real examples from her professional and personal experiences. In this way the reader is bonded to the author who becomes authentic and genuine as a person. She challenges the reader to recognize that this will be the result and the mark of assimilating the "Ten Commitments".
This is a timely, powerful and dynamic self-help guide for every woman.
