‘Speak From Your Heart And Be Heard’ contains fictionalized inspiring stories, based on real life and professional experience.
WILMINGTON, NC, August 12, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — For those suffering from trauma of any kind, healing is of paramount importance, as it helps individuals to reclaim their lives, restore a sense of inner peace, and foster overall well-being. Trauma can affect a person deeply, emotionally and physically, leading to a range of symptoms and difficulties. Healing from trauma promotes resilience, empowering individuals to regain a sense of control, rebuild trust in themselves and others, and cultivate healthier coping mechanisms. This paves the way for personal growth, enhancing self-compassion and self-esteem, and empowers individuals to form healthier, more fulfilling relationships.
Inspirational stories possess a remarkable power to facilitate healing and resilience in the face of trauma. By sharing tales of triumph over adversity, these kinds of stories can provide a source of hope and encouragement for individuals grappling with their own traumatic experiences. They can offer a sense of integration and connection, reminding survivors that they are not alone in their struggles, and that it is possible to overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges and emerge stronger on the other side.
Inspiring stories can help provide a roadmap for healing, offering valuable insights, coping strategies, and the reassurance that recovery is attainable. Readers can find solace, inspiration, and the motivation to embark on their own journey of healing and growth.
This healing process is the focus of Dr. Kixx Goldman’s most recent book, ‘Speak From Your Heart And Be Heard’. In this book, Dr. Goldman explores the nature of intuition and resilience. When people honor their intuition, the “little voice” inside, and speak openly about their feelings, they thrive in their relationships.
The eight engaging fictional stories in this collection are personal, drawn from experiences in Dr. Kixx’s life and the lives of her clients. The characters are tested by everyday traumas . . .
• A devoted father and his daughter find hope in rewriting their past.
• With remarkable grit, a teacher escapes a surprise attack.
• To heal his childhood wounds, a man must conquer his fears.
• A therapist defies the establishment to protect her clients.
• As she confronts the church, a therapist regains her standing.
• A woman learns the risks of not speaking out.
• By sharing her story and bonding with peers, a woman overcomes her trauma.
As the characters in these stories find the courage to triumph over their challenges, they heal and grow.
Inspired by real life people, characters show us how we can find the courage to transform difficult and traumatic life experiences, speak our truth and reclaim our power. ‘Speak from Your Heart’ offers the reader a guided tour of unique and powerful approaches to healing trauma. An added feature and treat for readers, Behind the Scenes reveals more about the source of the stories.
“This book is about Bringing our Stories to Life. And it’s about how writing can change your life,” Goldman noted.
“Creating this collection of short fiction has been transformative. After my children were grown, I had time to rediscover fiction.
“That’s when I decided to follow writer Toni Morrison’s advice, ‘If there’s a book you really want to read but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.’
“Before I knew it, I began to write about my life and the words flowed. Stories animated by my personal experiences, and my professional work with clients, made their way onto the page. Filtering the stories through the lens of fiction helped to breathe life into the characters and illuminate their relationships.
“I reached into the recesses of my soul to create these stories.”
The book has received rave reviews from readers and reviewers. Leslie S. Greenberg, PhD, distinguished Research Professor Emeritus, Dept. of Psychology, York University said, ” In each story, the characters’ resilience is illustrated by how they transform difficult life stories into constructive final narratives. They find the courage to triumph over challenges to heal and they grow. The message of the book: speaking one’s truth makes for desired change and healing.”
In her review, Liz Moulden said, “The short stories from Speak From Your Heart And Be Heard have given me a second chance and a voice, the voice I never had. What’s exciting about this book is each main character in these short stories experienced some kind of abuse/ trauma but each finds their inner voice. With help, they’re able to heal. Anyone who has ever experienced abuse or trauma as I have will be able to see snapshots of themselves in these stories.”
