An Awakening we all need when finding our back to ourselves.
Awakening of the heart captures our human ability to be vulnerable, to explore the ways in which we disconnect from ourselves and the journey we take back to who we are.
Barbara has a powerful ability to step inside the broken pieces of the past and transform pain into poignant poetry that is resonating and raw.
A beautifully deep collection of self-discovery that flourishes within the paradigms of love.Amazon UK
Inspirational poetry for heartbreak healing!
Awakening of the heart is a riveting poetry book that I simply could not put down as it embarked me on an amazing journey of relatable emotions. It was like each word, line and poem echoed my life experience from heartbreak to the strength of loving and trusting someone again. It was like this book was written for me as it defined the lessons I learned along the way in my quest for self-discovery and self-love. It was empowering to go through that spectrum of emotions and relive this through the word and experience of someone else. This poetry book is inspiring as it describes perfectly the strength that we need at our lowest to overcome our pains and the empowerment that we feel when we finally find happiness within ourselves. I just wish I had that book when I was going through this journey alone to give me the glimpse of hope I needed in my moments of doubt.
There are so many poems that I love; it is difficult to select just one. “To the man, I haven’t met yet” had however a special connotation in my heart as it resonates with questions, hopes and desire for love I felt when I was myself waiting for the girl I hadn’t met yet.
