The Left Turn Novel

If your past VANISHED . . . Who might you become?

Hannah, a forty-six year old author plagued with anxiety, and her partner James, an HR recruiter caught in a headlock of grief over his brother’s death, are as desperate for inner peace as they are clueless about how to find it.

But will they be able to let go of their deeply ingrained subconscious beliefs about life and themselves to embrace the unfamiliar potentials they now face?

What Would You Like?

This is a powerful question. When we get really clear about the answer, it is the beginning of drawing that into our lives. This is not a list of I-wish-this-or thats. While we may rattle off those statements daily, they tend to be more expressions of frustration than anything else. Like “I wish there wasn’t so much traffic” or “I wish he wouldn’t say things like that.”

Clarity and what we would like and what having that will do for us are the first questions we would ask to implement change in transformational NLP. And the power that allows for that change and helps it come into being is gratitude for what we have and who we have been. It incorporates appreciation for the past versions of ourselves that made the best choices available to ourselves at those particular moments in time when we were trying to make sense of our world. 

The Left Turn | author Becky Parker GeistTurning Our Attention

In The Left Turn, Hannah and James each come to realize how transformative gratitude is. Without appreciation for what we have, there is no energy to bring in more of the good stuff—the desires of our hearts. It’s easy to get stuck in loops of obsessive thinking around what we don’t want, what is bothering us, things that frustrate us. And yet the way to end or change the experience of what we don’t want, is to turn our attention instead to what we do want.

Gratitude Magic

If you’ve ever had a time when in the midst of feeling something you didn’t like, you stopped to find something to be grateful for, then you’ll know what I mean about how that shift can change how you feel and what happens next. It’s magical. If you haven’t tried it yet, give it a shot.
