The Gifted One, The Journey Begins
Are you often worried, or scared about your future and the future of our world? Do you wish you had the tools to turn off your worry machine and get the peace of mind you want and deserve? Is it difficult to get enthusiastic about anything? The fact is, most of us could use some help in finding joy in everyday life.
In his new book, The Gifted One, The Journey Begins, (Balboa Press), Dr. Andy McCabe breaks the rules in the self-transformation genre by telling a story, instead of providing a menu of do's and don'ts. He presents us with an entertaining and humorous book, with characters both men and women can easily identify with.
“I've read many self-help books,” says McCabe. “They offer 'ten ways to do this’ and 'five ways to do that.' I wanted to have fun, and people learn better when there's an actual story to follow while learning.” Well-written and thought-provoking, it challenges readers to find their own happiness within.
The book's lead character, distracted and self-absorbed, almost misses the opportunity to do a small kindness for a blind beggar. But when he does pause, he realizes he's spent his last quarter on the subway. All he has to give is a five dollar bill. He gives the five dollar bill, and very unexpectedly he receives an astonishing gift that eventually moves him into a whole new direction in his life. The story clearly makes readers realize that helping others, even in the smallest of ways, can change your life tremendously. The outcome of giving this small gift is phenomenal.
McCabe’s protagonist doesn’t know this blind messenger actually represents the world’s greatest healer and anyone who ‘passes the test’ of kindness will be given life-altering knowledge that will not only transform them but will ultimately change the world, for the better. In his quest for the gift of healing, he travels to a desert ranch, falls in love, and is handed a final mission that will leave readers gasping – and most definitely wanting more.
Indicated by the many rave reviews on Amazon.com, The Gifted One draws readers in from the first page with a challenge to begin their own life-changing journey towards achieving higher levels of reality, wisdom, spirituality and an overall healthier life.
Andy McCabe has been a guest on many radio and TV shows, including a one-hour interview on CBS Radio with Allison Hayes, ‘The Rock Girl’ (recipient of the 2011 Psychic of the Year Award from Om magazine). A graduate of Rutgers University, Andy is an associate professor who teaches courses in behavior disorders
