Awakening Your Soul's Truth


In Awakening Your Soul’s Truth, Anya Goode guides the reader on a life-changing journey that brings the spiritual seeker to a deep and profound understanding of the self, and provides a unique avenue to achieve a more fulfilling, abundant, and meaningful life. This powerful book breaks down complex spiritual concepts in a practical and easeful way for readers who are seeking growth, healing, and spiritual development.

Anya introduces ground-breaking spiritual transformation practices through the lens of her experience as a long-time practitioner of intuitive energy healing. In this debut work, Anya teaches the reader how to work with beliefs, challenges, emotions, and actions to create their most positive reality. She then guides the reader through powerful healing exercises intended to fast-track the spiritual awakening process.

The reading of this work and consistent practice of the exercises within, provide the resources to understand and navigate one’s path through life in a deeply healing and uplifting way.


“Reiki Master Teacher Goode offers an unusually clear, inviting, and practical guide to achieving a deeper understanding of the self through spiritual practice and techniques. Goode calls for the shedding of the “cloaks” that most people bear and have allowed to define us, and she avoids making grand promises for what her book can accomplish. For her, a “spiritual awakening” does not involve the universe unveiling its secret truths; instead, it’s simply “something lost and something revealed … a revealing of the self, no more and no less.” To that end, the lessons, exercises, and techniques laid out in Awakening Your Soul’s Truth have been crafted to reveal and heal the self—and to lead it toward a more fulfilling way of living.

Drawing on her experience as a teacher, healer, and spiritual mentor, as well as occasional excursions into autobiography, Goode plays the role of upbeat coach, frankly acknowledging the challenges of achieving a spiritual awakening in a world where millions sleep beside their cell phones while also offering tools to “fast-track” the shedding of cloaks and individuals readers’ journeys down their own “healing and awakening path’s.” She urges readers to examine the “taught beliefs” they may have learned, arguing that “Many of the people that carry [hateful beliefs] have never been exposed to anything outside of their cultural bubble.” She makes clear, though, that she wants readers to discover their own authentic beliefs rather than to become inculcated with hers. That refusal to preach sets Goode’s book apart from the pack, as does the warmth and clarity of her guidance. Whether breaking down the “anatomy” of emotion (“Guilt is a control mechanism”) or the “dark night” of a difficult spiritual awakening, Goode emphasizes forgiveness, gratitude, boundary setting, and above all else that revealing and healing the self is a challenging, ongoing process. Rather than tell readers what to think and believe, Goode strives to unveil what’s already in us.”

BookLife Reviews – Editor’s Pick – August 2021

Awakening Your Soul’s Truth is a spiritual self-help guide highly recommended for new age, spirituality, and alternative health collections alike. It comes from an energy healer and spiritual teacher with over twenty years of spiritual, healing, and teaching activities to her name, and requires no prior familiarity with new age or spiritual concepts in order to prove accessible.

Anya Goode does all the legwork in introducing these concepts for audiences unfamiliar with energetic intuitive healing or spiritual development.

Chapters introduce these efforts with a historical overview of belief systems, charting how they developed and their basic tenets and contrasting different types of belief before moving to belief’s connection to the healing process, discussing how emotion plays a big part in choice, action, and consequences both on a physical and a spiritual realm.

Ideally, readers will be prepared to do the work that is proposed later in the read, after this setup covers basic concepts and their applications. This is where self-help proves a powerful and necessary component for effecting real change and measurable results on many different levels.

These later chapters embrace passion and perception as they entwine the results of rising consciousness: “One day our masks come off, our consciousness shifts, and we become aware of the truth, our truth. We become aware that we are all kin, and that when we fight to defeat each other, we eventually become defeated ourselves as well. When our masks come off, we grieve the unconscious life we have lived and the errors we have made as a result of living life through the mask, through our cloaks. We grieve with the knowledge that so many continue to fight the battle of belief unconsciously as we once did. And then we forgive.”

Goode doesn’t promise that this will be an easy or intuitive process. She often uses examples of her clients and her own self-inspections to cement the fruits of this process, emphasizing that the undertaking, while vastly rewarding, is no simple procedure: “I had many clients in the past who had suffered sexual abuse. I remember watching the healing process unfold, thinking how lucky I was that it wasn’t me who had to experience that. It is truly amazing how the mind and body can protect us. The memories that came back to me, that I had to remember and relive to release, replayed in my mind and body as visceral flashbacks over the course of weeks. The beliefs formed through that trauma took many months to work my way through. Luckily, I knew through my work and experience as an energy healer exactly how to heal the trauma from such tragic events, yet it was still an excruciating full-time job.”

From illusions about her past which needed to be realized, remembered, confronted, and shattered to effect real healing to handling different forms of anxiety and understanding how emotion, trauma, and belief intersect at different levels of healing, readers receive a template for identifying and working through their own past experiences.

Awakening Your Soul’s Truth comes with the prerequisite of an inquiring mind willing to do the work to understand the roots of anguish and effect real change.

Self-help, spiritual, new age, and health collections interested in specific techniques for arriving at and embracing new truths and lasting change from the effort will find Awakening Your Soul’s Truth just the ticket to begin an intensive, fruitful process.”

“Most recently, I have immersed myself in self-help and personal development books and each of them brings a lot of wisdom, but Awakening Your Soul’s Truth: A Powerful Guide for Transformation, Healing, and Consciousness Growth by Anya Goode took me by surprise and I must say that I haven’t read anything quite like it. In this book, the author inspires readers to set out on their personal, spiritual odysseys where they can understand the self even more deeply and awaken their spiritual energies. Bringing her personal experience and vast spiritual knowledge into the writing, the author articulates on a variety of important topics, capturing spiritual concepts in language that is accessible and delivering practical steps to awaken consciousness, unlocking secrets to spiritual and personal growth, and finding the tools to heal and transform from within.

Fans of New Age spirituality will adore this book and will find delight in the practices that are introduced by the author. The book stands out in its originality, and while informed readers will hear echoes of some of the powerful voices in the field, Anya Goode doesn’t fail to point out that spiritual awakening is not an explosive experience through which we grasp some of the powers of the cosmos, but a realization that we are what we didn’t think we were. It is about stripping away the old vestments of the soul to unveil what is most essential. In this book, spiritual awakening is defined as the revealing of the self; it is about “unwrapping and shedding the layers of life surrounding us and finding the shining light of the soul deep within…” and the author provides the tools required for this process. Awakening Your Soul’s Truth is a book for those who want to embrace a life of authenticity, purpose, and meaning. It is packed with wisdom and insight and a path that opens the soul and mind to truths about who we really are. It is one of those books that one reads and passes on to others.”
