Assertiveness For Earth Angels is a self-help book about spirituality. I’ve recently come across the works of this author and this is the first book I’ve read from her.
Doreen classifies an Earth Angel as someone that is highly sensitive who has been sent to Earth on a particular mission to defuse and reduce conflict. Linking with the belief of human re-incarnation where we return to Earth multiple times to work through past personal conflicts, Doreen believes Earth Angels have their own special instructions. However because of their highly sensitive nature they can often be knocked off path by people they try to rescue, such as drama queens. addicts and energy drainers.
Earth Angels are likely to be obsessed with other people’s happiness, are “Conflict-phobic”, will shoulder other people’s burdens and rarely ask for help. But if they are to achieve their Earth-bound goals then they must learn to protect themselves and learn to be loving without being a pushover.
I enjoyed many of the chapters which encouraged me to look deeply at my own life. Some were of less interest as I felt I had no contact with the people and situations it described, but it is all useful for the future.
