About the author (2003)

Deborah Kent is a holistic health and well-being author, so her approach includes body, mind, emotions, and spirit. She has personally experienced that it is possible to improve your life circumstances and have a happier life, regardless of where you are starting from. The "Awaken the Flow" business was launched in 2003, followed by the launch of the dot com website, to provide health and well-being services to others. The "Awaken the Flow" name was born, following Deborah's recovery and healing from a series of traumatic life experiences. Deborah realized, as a part of her own healing journey, that all you need for healing, health and well-being, is already within you, and, when you "awaken that flow" from within, then you can truly have a better life, regardless of what your life experiences have been. That is when Deborah and her partner came up with the name of "Awaken the Flow." From the ashes of death, was born new life. (www.awakentheflow.com) Deborah applied the holistic healing techniques within this book to take back her power, and to overcome her problems in life. She knows, first hand, what it feels like to hit "rock bottom," and then to climb back out of that. More than once. Today Deborah remains a gentle and happy soul, who is strong, vibrant and smiling, content, and at peace. Her holistic healing work is a catalyst for transformation and awakening. Deborah was compelled to write this book in order to share that it IS possible to recover from PTSD, and to move forwards with an even better life for yourself. Your Spirit is stronger than you think. There is a way back from PTSD.
