Everything Is Here to Help You offers an emotionally supportive way to shift into the enlightenment of your soul. The author redefines the spiritual journey for those looking to become enlightened. This book is written from the point of view of the soul. The author explains avant-garde methods to resolve fear, untangle judgments, and learn how to view life from a clear, relaxed, friendlier perspective.
The book is divided into three main sections. The first section, Making Sense of Your Soul’s Journey, breaks down essentially what the soul journey actually is. The four foundations of love and the golden question, amplify the power of consciousness. The author gives a fresh new perspective on all aspects of a healing journey and offers a revolutionary and passionate approach to individual growth.
Section Two provides clearings, activations and integrations for the soul. The clearings are well written, easy to understand and follow. By performing the clearings, we can learn to create an authentic connection to the higher source. The activations, known as Starseed Activations, help activate and awaken heart centered consciousness throughout all aspects of the physical body. Finally, the integrations provide the most transformative experiences. All of these steps must be completed in order to undergo the most complete awakening journey.
Section Three, Creating a New Reality, gives insight as to why we are here. What is our purpose? Everyone’s purpose is the same, yet we all take different paths and experience different events along the way. Daily practices are provided to strengthen us as we go through life. Our lives are truly a gift, and this book can help us awaken our soul in physical form.
I feel that most of the information in the book was helpful. I, however, did not agree with the author’s stance on empaths. He feels that there are only two types of empaths: those who are empathic and do not understand how to harness their power and those who do not realize their empathic powers. I identify with being an empath. I recognize my gifts. I also, after many years of practice, know how to control my empathic power. His scope on empaths seems to be very limited. It would have been nice to see him expand upon that topic a bit more since it is so important in soul development.
One of my favorite parts in this book is when the author presented an equation to help expand consciousness, WE ARE ONE.
Word Embodied (WE)
Awareness + Resolution = Expansion (ARE)
Openness Never Excludes (ONE)
This is an interesting and simple way to remember that we are all one.
This book definitely offers a straightforward road map to explore the magic, mysteries, and miracles that reside in every heart. We can all gain some clarity on our journey through life by reading this and practicing gratitude, non-judgement, forgiveness and love.
About the Author:
Matt Kahn is the author of Everything Is Here to Help You: A Loving Guide to Your Soul’s Evolution. A spiritual teacher, and highly-attuned empathic healer, his spontaneous awakening arose out of an out-of-body experience at the age of 8, and through his direct experiences with Ascended Masters and Archangels throughout his life. Using his intuitive abilities of seeing, hearing, feeling, and direct knowing, as an empath, Matt feels the emotions of others and is able to pinpoint what blocks any heart from opening. As a result, he brings forth revolutionary teachings through both the written and spoken word that assist energetically-sensitive beings in healing the body, awakening the soul, and transforming reality through the power of love. He is a bridge between the mystical realms and the path of awakening who inspires profound spiritual growth and life-changing energetic expansion to audiences worldwide through a spoken transmission of presence. Through the words Matt is intuitively guided to share, an energy shift occurs to balance the right and left hemispheres of the brain, rewrite the subconscious mind, and unravel the overstimulated nervous system. The result of this transmission ranges from a more balanced emotional body, the elimination of stress, fear, doubt, and despair, greater connection with the Universe, the activation of intuitive gifts, spontaneous remission, deeper intimacy in relationships, as well as direct experiences of self-realization. Many spiritual seekers have experienced amazing, unexplainable physical and emotional healings, and have awakened to their true nature through Matt’s profound and loving teachings, and transmission of sacred heart wisdom.

Embracing Your Life After 50 to Find Fulfillment, Purpose, and Joy
By Andrea Brandt, PhD, MFT
“There is no magical age at which we need to abandon our dreams and surrender our possibilities,” says renowned psychologist Dr. Andrea Brandt. So, as you think about growing older — which we all do, if we’re lucky — ask yourself:
- Am I really prepared to grow older?
- How can I make the most of what life still has to offer?
- How do I overcome the negative feelings and fears I have over getting older?
- What changes can I make in my life right now to lead a more meaningful life as I age?
In Mindful Aging: Embracing Your Life After 50 to Find Fulfillment, Purpose, and Joy [PESI Publishing, October 10, 2017], Dr. Brandt delivers the answers to these questions and challenges readers to throw out old stereotypes about aging, look at inspiring new evidence, and open ourselves to the very real possibilities that exist for us right now.
“Giving up a salaried occupation – if that’s what we choose – doesn’t mean giving up purposeful interaction with the world around us. Rather than take feelings of exhaustion and boredom to mean we need to retire, might these negative attitudes be more likely to indicate the need to reinvent ourselves, to explore new territory that brings us back to life and develops the skills we need to flourish there?”
With thought provoking real world stories and examples, Dr. Brandt challenges men and women to rethink aging. In Mindful Aging, Dr. Brandt:
- Identifies cultural and societal connotations about aging and how – and why – we need to rethink them
- Offers specific key ways to increase your happiness as you get older
- Enlightens readers on the role of mindfulness in creating positive change
- Examines the need for creating a vision for life after 50, and how to deal with fear, loss, and resistance along the way
- Outlines the fundamentals for a healthy, happy post-middle age – from relationships and wellness to mental health, spirituality and more
- Describes how to let go of feelings and experiences that no longer serve you from your past
- And so much more!
“That we age is inevitable. How we age is largely up to us,” Dr. Brandt adds. “As the last of the Baby Boomers have now turned 50 and another 10,000 of their generation retire each day, a huge number of Americans find themselves confronted with the changes and challenges that come with older age and with the reality of finite life. I wanted to offer a beacon of renewal on steady shore for those who temporarily feel lost at sea.”
Andrea Brandt, PhD, MFT, has over 35 years of clinical experience as a renowned psychotherapist, speaker, and author.

She emphasizes the mind-body-heart connection as a key to mental, physical, and emotional wellness.
A featured media expert, Dr. Brandt has appeared on numerous television programs, radio shows, and podcasts. She is a contributor to Psychology Today and has written blog posts for The Huffington Post, Mind Body Green, Psych Central, and more. Long recognized as a pioneer in the field of treating anger issues, Dr. Brandt is the author of 8 Keys to Eliminating Passive-Aggressiveness, Mindful Anger: A Pathway to Emotional Freedom and her newest book, Mindful Aging: Embracing Your Life After 50 to Find Fulfillment, Purpose, and Joy.
