Author releases third book
Sitting in her office one sunny afternoon, author Betty Healey was struck with the memory of an old child’s prayer: Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep, If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. It was the third line of this prayer that most affected her, “ If I should die before I wake.”
“ What were they thinking?” was her next thought, and “ why would you say this to a child?” And then the “ aha!” moment: perhaps it was meant to be phrased as “ If I should wake before I die.” This realization led to the birth of her most recent book .
Me First – If I Should Wake Before I Die introduces the reader to a new concept which the author calls “ selfness.”
“ Me First is not a selfish act; it is a process of learning to be of service to self so that you can continue to be of service to others,” says Healey. “ It is time for all of us to get ourselves on our own priority list!”
Written in Healey’s usual conversational style, the book leads the reader on a journey of self-discovery and transformation through the Seven Directions of Awakening. The Seven Directions are Clarity, Selfness, Introspection, Wisdom, Legacy, Source and Authenticity. The reader can expect more than theory; Me First is part road map and guide and part workbook, inviting the reader to participate fully.
Me First – If I Should Wake Before I Die also introduces the reader to an important process called Stepping-UPP. In true coaching tradition, Healey challenges readers to apply their learnings to their life now. The ultimate goal is for readers to become clear on the life they want to attract and then take the necessary steps to manifesting this life.
Me First – If I Should Wake Before I Die is an important book for these times. Faced with the multiple demands of an increasingly busy schedule, Me First addresses the importance of taking the time to step away from the frenetic pace of life so as to step into the life we really want.
