About the Author

Robin Marvel is “that” girl. She has survived mental, domestic and drug abuse, homelessness and kidnappings throughout her childhood. Becom¬ing addicted to alcohol and partying at age 15 resulted in a sexual assault and to becoming a teen mother at age 16 (not because of the sexual assault).

Upon finding out she was having a girl, she made the choice that they would not be a statistic. She knew she would have to work hard and continue to work hard to make sure that would become her truth. By living with self-respect and determination, Robin strives to be a positive role model for her 5 daughters.

She has taken those negative situations she was dealt in life, and turned them into motivation and purpose.

Now a multi-published author and motivational speaker in the field of self development, her passion is to use her story to show others that they are not a product of their past, to show them that even though they may face challenges, they have the power to live their dreams by breaking cycles and taking personal responsibility now. She is proof of this!

She has also started a non-profit organization, S.E.L.F—Self Empowered Living Free. This involves striving to create strength and confidence through aiding those in need. S.E.L.F. hosts a variety of charitable events to fill food pantries, provide life skills and empowerment to those in need. It focuses on the homeless, feeding the hungry and on teen pregnancy.

Awakening Consciousness was written for young girls. However, it would be very useful to all women. The workbook gives you simple meditation techniques to help you focus. I personally believe that meditation can be very effective. Through this workbook I have discovered that in stressful situations, meditation helps me to relax and focus on the problems at hand. I find that if I am in a quiet place it is easier to clear my mind and focus on specific details. This workbook is a great way to help young girls discover who they are and who they want to be. It helps girls to know how to be the best that they can be. Awakening Consciousness is a very helpful resource when you are trying to learn how to improve your life or help to improve someone else¿s life. This workbook teaches young girls how to be aware of one self. One could learn how to create one¿s own future. In my opinion, this workbook would be very helpful to all young girls who want to make their lives great. I would definitely have my own daughter give this workbook a try so that she can discover her true self. I believe that she would have a blast doing the activities provided in this workbook. I would recommend adding more meditation techniques to give readers a variety of choices. Having more than one technique will help young girls to find which technique works best for them. I think that this is a great start for a workbook for young girls to discover themselves. However, I do believe that a more variety of activities would help a lot more. The workbook was well written and very clear. There were no misunderstandings while reading the different activity directions. It is easy to follow and would be a lot of fun for young readers.

Robin Marvel has issued the world with what I feel is a very powerful and positive idea. For myself, I was this type of girl and it would have been wonderful to have this resource at my fingertips. Currently, I am a Certified Massage Therapist, Reflexologist and I work often with what is explained in this book. I utilize essential oils in my daily life for myself and my family. I also try hard to lead a non-judgmental life and teach these values to my young son.I highly feel this should become a required book for school although I cannot properly assign an age to this as it would be up how much the child understands. However, the information is easily presented so all ages can begin an alternative lifestyle and embrace their true potential and leave behind the pettiness that comes with peer groups.My only major concern in this work, especially as this is clearly meant for the younger crowd, is that the oils are mentioned, but there is nothing issued in a form of warning on what oils to purchase. Many `health food store and massage warehouse¿ oils are tainted with toxic fillers that can become harmful ¿ used straight (neat) or in a blend as anything placed on the skin is absorbed in roughly twenty minutes. Effects of these oils can be felt via the skin or aroma, so buyers beware. Otherwise, I recommend fully as there are many wonderful ideas presented.

This is an interactive introduction into metaphysical phenomena (study of the nature of being) . This workbook is geared for young girls. While the workbook gives only a preliminary look at spiritual and universal awareness, it does open doors to thoughts and experiences that some kids may not be exposed to any other way. This kind of awareness can help in self confidences, self appreciations, self awareness and even gives young girls the chance to be happy and peaceful with themselves. The workbook includes fun physical and artistic exercises, some are set up to be done by themselves while others should be done with other girls whether they are friends or family. These exercises will help the girls understand new concepts and gives them different ways of looking at themselves and the world around them. This book may have talk of chakras, auras, crystals, herbals, and even guardian angels, but really no matter what you believe in, this book is about giving young girls the power and the ability to really believe in themselves. Some of the exercises in this workbook is vague, the description of each activity sometimes lacks direction or doesn¿t give a full definition of the concept, but considering the age group that this is geared to, (8 to 10 year olds) the activities are fun enough without perfect knowledge or understanding of the 'whys' and the 'how-comes'. Of all things this book teaches and brings to the attention of girls, the epilogue sums it up the best with a note from the author (Robin Marvel) telling every girl that reads through this book that she is "Amazing". Every girl needs to know that they have the power to make themselves happy, healthy and that they also have the abilities to help others with their peaceful way of life.

Both of our children are boys, so I may not be the best qualified to review this book, but I know many parents of daughters who are looking for books to help them in guiding their girls to see the big picture. Awakening Consciousness, which is book #4 in Loving Healing Press's "Growing With Love" series, is intended as a workbook for girls and young women to learn about their own spiritual self-awareness. The Library of Congress Cataloging-in-Publication Data lists it under the categories, "Children--Psychic ability" and "Parapsychology--Juvenile literature." Author Robin Marvel begins her note to parents by saying, "There is a shift taking place in our world and Universal Awareness will prevail." This book does contain some generally good advice. "Always be true to who you are even if it isn't what everyone else is doing. You get to make the choices that affect you. So what if you aren't the most popular in school? You are your own person" (p. 9). All children need to know that. There is also practical information about hygiene, being thankful, apologizing to others, and similar things. The book is divided into twelve chapters, and each one has exercises or activities to reinforce the material in it. Families from traditional Christian, Jewish, and Muslim backgrounds may not find reading about energy fields, auras, chakras, karma, yoga, mindful meditation, aromatherapy, grounding, reiki, pendulums, mind reading, tarot cards, crystals, and past lives particularly beneficial, but those who are interested in such subjects might come across something that they can use.
