Awaken your inner power by freely expressing your feelings and creating healthy personal boundaries in the exquisitely illustrated graphic novel, Iphelia (Awakening The Gift of Feeling) by Erick Kenneth French. Meet Iphelia, a beautiful, highly sensitive young girl. Iphelia feels her emotions so deeply she is at a loss as to how to process them. To add further complications, Iphelia is also an empath. She senses other people's emotions so intensely that sometimes her own thoughts and feelings become a jumbled mess of confusing emotions. Learn with Iphelia why meditation, being aware of our emotions, and setting healthy boundaries are so crucial to our well-being. Explore different techniques for healing deep wounds to experience a happier, more emotionally mature life. Are you ready to end vicious cycles of anger and guilt? Delve deep into your inner being, and learn how to stop leaking and spewing your negative emotions on your loved ones and become the person you are meant to be.
Iphelia (Awakening The Gift of Feeling) by Erick Kenneth French is a stunning graphic novel/self-help book merged. I was beyond impressed with the content; the graphic story was so well formulated and depicted, I would have been satisfied with it alone. Only the author went so much further by including tools and techniques that assist in uncovering and healing old emotional wounds, clearing out old patterns, and creating new, healthier ways of dealing with our feelings. This book is beautifully written and flawlessly delivered, with techniques that are easily grasped and even more easily implemented. Upon finishing the story, I felt that I had spent significant time with a therapist; the concepts are so simple to apply, and with little effort the results become quickly realized. I highly recommend this book to adults that are tired of taking their stress out on their friends and loved ones, and who are ready to start taking responsibility for their actions, reactions, and their lives. For children, I believe that this book will enhance their understanding of the different emotions they are experiencing and help teach them emotional maturity while they are still young; giving them a priceless set of tools that will stay with them throughout their lives.
