The Power of Wholeness: Discover a More Fulfilling, Successful, and Rewarding Life by Verlaine Crawford lives up to the subtitle and truly does teach valuable lessons to people of any age. Verlaine begins by highlighting our emotional responses including thoughts and actions, our greater awareness, intuition, and beliefs. Most of us have battles raging within and have developed responses to experiences including trauma, conflict, and expectations which may change our perspectives and cause problems. This impacts our ability to move toward prosperity, abundance, and fulfillment in health, wealth, love, and self-expression, based on our ingrained values and attributes. The “Infusion Integration Process" helps us to control our minds and bodies, to access our wisdom and creativity, and overcome our challenges.

Verlaine Crawford has created an educational gem with her self-help book The Power of Wholeness. I believe that every person, young or old, can benefit from and should read this life-changing work. Verlaine’s writing style is relaxed and comfortable, making it easy to read and understand. The book is not only informative but also contains real-life examples and activities for the reader to complete and enjoy. Verlaine includes her journey to wholeness for which I am grateful as it provides the reader with experiences they can relate to. Verlaine has conducted her research and dedicated her life to helping herself and others. This is by far one of the best self-help books I have ever read and it would make a perfect gift for anyone.

As we move forward with our lives in this fast-paced world, it can sometimes become quite difficult to identify what we truly want, as our needs and wants vary according to our personality subsets. Verlaine Crawford is an Intuitive Whole Life Consultant with over fifty years of experience as a business executive in some of Silicon Valley's prominent high-tech companies. With The Power of Wholeness, the author introduces readers to the Infusion Integration Process and seeks to help them unite the subpersonalities—facets of your personality that have emerged in response to positive and negative experiences—and make them work toward a successful and fulfilling life. The book focuses on composing one's values based on the four Cornerstones of Life: Health, Wealth, Love, and Self-expression.

In this book, Dr. Verlaine Crawford will teach readers to listen to their personality traits that gravitate toward creating wealth and abundance, forging healthy and loving relationships, being more intuitive, practicing meditation to find spiritual awareness, and much more. Crawford also emphasizes that our selves can tear us apart and highlights the role of ego in our lives. The Power of Wholeness is a book that will help readers learn how to lead healthy lives with financial freedom and spiritual mindfulness to express themselves as they truly are. All in all, this inspirational book will take you on a journey of self-discovery. Ultimately, you can identify your positive and negative subpersonalities and acquire the tools to lead fulfilling lives. Highly recommended.

The Power of Wholeness: Discover a More Fulfilling, Successful, and Rewarding Life by Verlaine Crawford is a self-help book in which the author outlines the steps needed to find our true selves and presents the necessary tools to overcome the obstacles in our lives that prevent us from being happy. By giving examples and discussing topics like the inner landscape, mental health, and the different sub-personalities that are to be found in each of us, Crawford opens the door to finding ourselves and accepting who we are. She also explains how to unify all the different parts that constitute ourselves.

One of the aspects that I liked about The Power of Wholeness by Verlaine Crawford is that the author didn't immediately introduce a complex concept such as sub-personalities or intuition, but found time to explain each of these concepts in advance so that the reader could better understand the desired message. Another feature that I really liked is the way that the author raised specific questions throughout the book that made the reader more focused and directly connected. When reading those questions, I immediately felt compelled to find the answer within myself. By creating activities related to the different subjects, like compiling your values or playing imagination games, the author managed to capture my undivided attention and hold it until the end of the book.
