Summary

In spite of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, many women are still afraid to say no to unwanted sexual advances and reluctant to report sexual violations. Far too many college students are being raped and are afraid to report it. Women are subjected to sexual harassment, sexual bullying, and sexual pressure every day on the street, at work, and at home but are unable to speak truth to power or to report these sexual offenses. 

I’m Saying No! is written specifically for these women—women who are still afraid to speak up for themselves, women who need to learn how to do so, and women whose personal history of child sexual abuse or sexual assault as an adult has wounded them so much that they have lost their voice. Here, Beverly Engel—an internationally recognized psychotherapist and acclaimed advocate for victims of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse—offers a ground-breaking program to help all the women who have been silenced by past trauma, women who were raised to believe they didn’t have a right to say no, and women who have spoken out in the past only to go unheard. 

 Bold and timely, I’m Saying No! offers women the encouragement, support, and guidelines they need in order to become the powerful women they are—women who believe in themselves and stand up for themselves.

    Some people believe they are absolutely typical of their sun sign, while others see little of themselves in the descriptions given in most astrology books.Written for beginners as well as astrology students, this informative volume explains why one sun sign can include many different personalities. There are many possible astrological reasons for the diversification within each sign, but this book demonstrates two main factors that are easy for a complete beginner in astrology to understand and to use: decans and dwads. The system presented here is simple and effective and does not require learning the complexities of chart interpretation.Each sign of the zodiac can be divided into three sections called decans, and each decan can be divided into four dwads. These divisions can lead to many variations in personalities of people born under a specific sign, including those between twins. Determine your decan and dwad on the easy-to-use tables provided, then see what their interpretations say about your life. Find out how to progress your sun sign to check out trends and events for any year of your life. After you've evaluated yourself, you can enjoy doing the same for your family and friends.Although perfect for beginners, the simplicity of this approach makes it a handy tool for working astrologers and includes information on gender, elements, and qualities and how they relate to the sun sign.

    Having enough energy is vital to getting through the day.
     
    For professionals, that means being able to check off the to-do list and clear off the desk of work that has been piling up. For students, that means being able to manage all that studying while also being able to maintain a social life.
     
    And for everybody else and in between, simply going through the daily motion of life is exhausting, and by the time they are done for the day, they are ready to crash in bed and don't have the energy to enjoy the things they love but only to return to the grind the next day.
     
    What's the worst part of all? Most folks can't even make it through the day with their limited supply of exhausted energy, with so many things left on their plates to do before the afternoon slump hits. As a result, their work begins to suffer and fatigue has begun a norm causing detriments to their health.
     
    That is why it's crucial to be able to manually recharge your energy when necessary, and that can be easily accomplished using simple energy hacks.

    You shouldn't be surprised that your energy level also dictates your productivity level of how much you will accomplish for the day and every day that follows for the rest of your life. It's understandable when there is too much to do and never enough time, however, when it comes to not enough energy, that is a different story that you can control.
     
    If you are constantly burning up all your energy that you end up crashing, it's time to upgrade your human battery for unlimited renewed energy.
