Embark on an amazing journey of self-discovery so you can finally learn not only how to transform spirituality, but also how to achieve personal freedom by getting in touch with your authentic self.

EnlightenUp illustrates how and why true spiritual growth requires you to look within and become the change you want to see in the world. Through thought provoking Questions to Ponder and revealing Exercises, Marianne T. Schorer gives you the tools to define yourself as you broaden your perspectives; form new beliefs that reflect your reality; cultivate your own spiritual language; and learn "Artful Strategies" in which to take responsibility for your life.

Wake up to a new level of conscious awareness that sheds illusions and allows you to formulate and embrace vital truths about yourself and the world. By journey's end, you will discover your true essence and will have the means and the mindset to live your life to the fullest and be the best you can possibly be.

Today, self-help books are a predominant part of our culture. People buy them in droves, all with the underlying desire of wanting to feel better. This quest for personal enlightenment and growth is admirable and clearly sends a message that states, --†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¢'‚'‚¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¬--†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚¦'‚'‚¬Ã…âₓI want to change or improve myself and my life.--†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¢'‚'‚¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¬? This statement then prompts the obvious question: --†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¢'‚'‚¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¬--†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚¦'‚'‚¬Ã…âₓHow do I do it?--†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¢'‚'‚¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¬?

The amount of pain a person is experiencing determines the direction he or she takes. Those directions can be therapy; self-help; support of friends, family, or a coach; prayer; meditation; or self-introspection. However, these resources will take people only so far, which prompts the next question: --†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¢'‚'‚¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¬--†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚¦'‚'‚¬Ã…âₓWhere do I go from there?--†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¢'‚'‚¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¬?

EnlightenUp suggests a combination of resources that will enhance your ability to satisfy your needs and achieve the outcome you desire in your life. Why is this so important? Quite frankly, look around. There are people with eating disorders, gambling, shopping, alcohol, or drug-related addictions. When they hit a low point and the pain begins to feel unbearable, the questions begin: --†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¢'‚'‚¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¬--†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚¦'‚'‚¬Ã…âₓWhat do I do? Where do I go? How do I get help?--†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¢'‚'‚¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¬? On a less extreme level, many people possess some sort of exercise equipment that has become a sculpture within the confines of their home. While they may have books on --†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¢'‚'‚¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¬--†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚¦'‚'‚¬Ã…âₓhow to feel healthy and be fit,--†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¢'‚'‚¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¬? many of them still sit in front of the tube and eat junk food. As their weight escalates and their self-esteem plummets, they ask the same questions as the former group: --†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¢'‚'‚¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¬--†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚¦'‚'‚¬Ã…âₓWhat do I do? Where do I go? How do I get help?--†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¢'‚'‚¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¬?

Fortunately, there are answers to these questions. However, rather than give a quick, pat answer, I want you to take a moment to think about some of your unmet needs. There is no mystery that unmet needs are generally at the root of our addictions. Think about the following questions:

--†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¢'‚'‚¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¬--†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢ What is it that our unconscious is desperately seeking that manifests itself in a behavior of avoidance or denial of responsibility centered on fixing others rather than ourselves?

--†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¢'‚'‚¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¬--†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢ What is it that drives us to seek other ways to ease the pain of unfulfilment when in effect we are actually sabotaging ourselves?

--†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¢'‚'‚¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¬--†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢ What are the strong emotions brought on by our limiting beliefs and expectations, perceived threats, fears, or tolerations?

Find the answers to the above questions. It will also take you through a process that teaches, guides, and supports you to explore a spiritual language that helps you become aware of your humanness while you discover the pathways to EnlightenUp. These teachings will inspire you to love, appreciate, and accept your own individuality and uniqueness. I want to stress that each person is his or her greatest asset, and each of us has the ability to draw upon the inner resources that lie within us in order to capitalize and make that asset the best it can be.
