You! The Spiritual Giant is a book that contains useful information about how to improve my spiritual health. I know that I have a purpose and a vision for me. This is one of main ideas behind what Mark Rich calls spiritual needs psychology. I learned that I have a spiritual mind and a physical one. They are equally important in my growth as a person.
Inner guidance is something I have problems with. I would have trouble being aware of inner guidance when it happens. I do not dream often, so I think it would be hard to receive the kind of inner guidance that he is talking about. My awareness of guidance will increase when I attempt to practice meditation. Mark Rich provides exercises to increase my awareness of emotions and behaviors in my life that may need improvement.
I liked reading about the different forms of meditation. The Silence to Breath and Heart walk methods of meditation will help me tune out distractions and calm my mind. Mark Rich also provides valuable insight on how to set goals. He uses an acronym called S.M.A.R.T. This is a frame work that will help me to make goals that are specific, capable of being measured and also attainable. This entire chapter on goal setting is terrific. Turning a negative emotional state into a positive one is another thing I found I can apply to my life. I love the connection he makes between how my thoughts can affect my physical health. This bit of of information is fascinating to read. I learned about the different brain waves like beta, theta and alpha. You! The Spiritual Giant will not transform any one into a giant over night. Everything he describes in this book may take a long time to grasp. This main message of this book is that a person's spiritual mind is as important as their physical one. Both help a person to function properly in life.
