Like a Spark from Fire

Adult; Self-Help, Sex & Relationships, Psychology, Philosophy, Fashion; (Market)

If you are feeling stuck in life but know somehow you were meant for more, this book is an invitation for women to finally break free. Over the course of your life, you developed an identity that helped you function and survive in the world but also covered up your true power. The flame of passion and limitless possibility of your true nature is still there as brilliant as ever waiting to be rediscovered. Like a Spark From Fire, inspired by the psychology of Carl Jung and Eastern spirituality, empowers you to let go of your past, express your brilliance and become your True Self. That Spark (divine nature) is within you and ready to be awakened into your life.
Reviews
Writing for women who feel stuck or that they’re not realizing their full potential, Maldonado (Let Love In) lays out in clear, engaging language practical steps and philosophical precepts to help readers break free, “ignite” their lives, and move through the world with less stress, more self-compassion, and understanding of one’s persona, projections, patterns, visions, and personal spark. That “spark” refers to the unchanging core self, a “True Personality” that we’re each born with; occasionally, Maldonado argues, we experience “spark moments,” soul-deep flashes of clarity and truth that remind us “to remember who you are and reclaim your power.” Like a Spark from Fire offers tools, insights, and practical guidance to connect readers with that spark and (re)discover their essential nature.

“Let’s draw the curtains and see who you really are,” Maldonado writes. While she draws on Jungian concepts and Eastern mysticism, Maldonado writes with the tone of a coach or confidant, offering practical advice and insights, anecdotes from her own journey, exercises and meditation prompts, plus much spirited encouragement. (“As you express true feminine power, you can inspire other women to speak up as well, feel more confident, and consciously create a new, more loving world.”) Even chapters addressing how to identify and “integrate” one’s “shadow” remain clear-eyed and persuasive, neither sinking into vagueness nor getting bogged down in Jungian complexities.

Some readers may find Maldonado’s breakdowns of “persona type”s (The Lover, The Mother, The Mystic) too generalized, though she takes care to note that these are most often facets of personalities rather than the totality. Throughout, she reminds readers that what matters most is what resonates with them, as we’re all unique and complex. The result is an inviting guide that makes complex ideas simple, relatable—and, most crucially—applicable to a broad range of readers who are open to its ideas.

Takeaway: This guide for women to seizing their power by revealing their core self is inviting and adaptable.

Great for fans of: Shainna Ali’s The Self-Love Workbook, Catherine A. Duca’s Unmasked.
