"Being outraged simply isn't enough. This book offers helpful tools for transforming outrage into action. Worth the read!" -VAN JONES, CNN, host of The Van Jones show
Diane Altomare has been guiding people to embrace their shadows and make peace with their past, for over 18 years and has become fascinated by the psychological behavior of people, as a result of the new level of intense emotional upset thrust into our daily lives by this administration, the media's coverage of it and the social media debates about it.
We are all being emotionally affected by the intense political climate, in our country. So many people are consumed by anxiety, fear and anger. Many feel helpless and emotionally exhausted by it all.
You want to be able to speak your mind, you want to be able to have productive discussions with friends, loved ones, and even strangers about issues close to your heart, but what do you do when these very interactions turn hateful, sapping up all the energy and patience you need to move forward with peace?
In Emotionally Trumped Out, Altomare shows you how to transform every political conversation & conflict into inspired action, love & healing. How every moment, experience, conversation and way you are being emotionally affected is an opportunity and gift to return to yourself, transform what's going on and create more of what you desire in your life...and more love and light in the world around you. Not only do we need this guidance individually but our country needs it now, more than ever.
"I have been on edge since 11/7/2016. In three days, your book has helped me so much. I no longer feel constantly on edge, I am much calmer and less irritable and don't feel out of control. I have been able to have several civil conversations. I can't thank you enough. I'm sending you a hug. Bless you!" - JACKIE CLARK
Exhale, the companion book to Emotionally Trumped Out, includes a journal for your daily thoughts.
Comments about the work of Emotionally Trumped Out:
"Your work is truly a beacon of light and sanity in these chaotic, divided times. I highly recommend your book and work to all who are open. It is sometimes easy to get pulled into the vortex of negativity (and projection). I still have a long way to go but I see that I have a lot of emotions to "own" and heal that are triggered by these polarizing times. I try to stay out of political discourse completely because it is simply too painful at times for me. I appreciate your courage in taking a stand, and in keeping lines of communication open with other willing parties of all political stripes. I think your work will spread like wildfire at some point. I just saw a newsfeed article titled something about many Americans feeling emotionally exhausted by the political climate, which is what your writing is all about. And much more, of course, since you are pointing the way through the emotional triggers so that we can all see beyond the "political" divide."
"What I admire most about you is that despite the reaction you might get for speaking the truth as a public figure. Possibly damaging your business, you give people a moral compass and a path to sanity. I always read your posts carefully. They are so helpful."
"Thank you for writing this. I need this right now!!!! :) I am shocked at the rage in me, so close to the surface every day. I never thought of myself as a particularly angry person, but jeez! Looking forward to your wisdom!"
"I appreciate you speaking your truth about such an emotionally charged topic in a respectful and loving manner. I know for me, it can feel completely draining and I can only do it in small doses, but we can't remain silent when innocent children are being abused, dehumanized, and traumatized. Thank you for doing such important work."
"You're doing tremendous work! I don't know where to turn to sort out my thoughts and your conversations and writings have been a huge help."
"I've started dating an old boyfriend from 30 years ago who is a Republican, thinks like a Republican and didn't vote because he hated both candidates. He came along right at the time I started digging in with your work. He's my test. We were able to have a one hour conversation the other night about politics and Roe V. Wade. He pushes back on me, his political perspective combined with his Christian faith.We disagreed on a few big things. I could feel myself start to boil then I just came back to the trigger point. I made it through and we came out on the other side without harm or foul. I'm convinced that this work is working for me. Thank you!"
"I do also believe that love and light will prevail. Meanwhile we are certainly being tested. Thank you for holding the light and encouraging us all. We certainly need it."
"I really admire you for speaking your mind, not backing down and being so classy and sensible."
"I'm not on Facebook much but was lucky to have seen your last few posts. Thank you for so gracefully putting into words what other can't."
