Elevating Your Origins to Love: A Guided Journey of Transformation, Healing and Power is a work of non-fiction in the motivational, introspective, and self-help subgenres. It is best suited to the general adult reading audience and was penned by Susan Drury. This intellectually stimulating guide examines the social constructs of the human world and the process by which we learn to “be human” from as early as birth. It points out how this can be damaging to our emotional and psychological well-being if we don’t step back and examine where this advice came from when we are adults. Drawing on her own experience, the author describes different moments of revelation and the process of transformation and offers practical advice and meditations to help readers evaluate their perspectives.

Susan Drury balances the tricky realms of emotional, meditative self-help, and the world of social science and psychology fabulously well to deliver this well-balanced guide to living. I found her criticisms of the assumptions of truth that we make to be well-examined. The different psychological states of early development were explained in accessible terms and were fascinating to read. There’s never a moment where emotion, pain, or suffering are overlooked or ignored, but there’s also a deep thread of logic, reason, and critical thinking that underpins every principle to keep us grounded and well-guided during the process. Elevating Your Origins to Love is a highly recommended read for those in need of a fresh perspective, and an ideal book to have by your side when you start a new phase of your life.

Elevating Your Origins to Love is a guidebook by Susan Drury. The author uses examples from well-known situations and her own experiences to convey the need to clear the mind of negative energy. Meditative workouts are present throughout the book which guide the reader through positive reflections. The tone of the book is conversational, and the language is easy to read, even when the author dives into more difficult terms and explanations. The exercises are engaging, and they’d be good for readers who experience anxiety, as the information gathered from the guided meditations would help them assess their proclivity toward certain behaviors and their reactions to certain stressors. In addition, though some readers may not see it on the surface, the exercises encourage empathy and awareness of others, and they can help a reader approach a subject or person in a more constructive way.

Susan Drury has a beautiful way of conveying information as she reveals important topics and information, sharing bits of herself within the pages that endear readers to her. Several stories may cause the reader to think more deeply about the way their emotions and energies were formed from a very early age and inspire them to take a path of healing. After applying the meditations, readers have the opportunity to learn more about themselves and their past caregivers. Everyone would benefit from reading Elevating Your Origins to Love, and it would be a great find in a library or an addition to a personal bookshelf.

I decided to read Susan Drury’s motivational Elevating Your Origins to Love: A Guided Journey of Transformation, Healing and Power based on the appealing idea of optimizing how to be a human being. As with books of this nature, there are no easy answers to the big troubles we face in life, and I appreciate a candid acknowledgment that to get results, you need to apply great effort. What Drury has provided is an accessible set of tools for reflecting inwards, knocking down ineffective ideas about ourselves there because of an imperfect learning cycle, and building new ideas from the ground up.

I’ve nothing but high praise for the writing style Susan Drury employs throughout this read, always ensuring she speaks to readers from a place of equality while imparting guidance and wisdom. Often, we see supposed experts regard themselves above the people they are trying to teach. Drury’s approach of talking to readers as fellow humans who are in the same boat creates accessible prose that I’ve no doubt will stand the test of time. Elevating Your Origins to Love provides a fascinating perspective on the world and will broaden readers’ minds about the human experience. It is a transformative resource, encouraging readers to step out of their comfort zone and begin an introspective journey to broaden their horizons and change the way they see the world.
