An insightful, refreshing and interactive life guide that will help you end your own self-destruction, redesign your life, and improve your resistance to the common poisons of human existence.
Do you feel trapped within your everyday problems? Do you yearn for a more fulfilling life, yet feel powerless to achieve what you want? If the answer is YES then you’ve probably been living with poison in your system for some time. From the age of eighteen, Svein Erik Scheie has tried various methods —from self-development manuals, meditation to therapy, classes and medication— to remove the negativity but found these to offer only a temporary fix. However, today, and after years of searching, he’s found his antidote. Prompted by his daughter, a self-proclaimed advocate of his methods, Svein is now sharing his unique and highly approachable process in a clear, effective way hoping to offer real, lasting change to readers willing to commit themselves to a poison-free life -and hope to the disillusioned who feel they have nowhere left to turn.
Divided into three parts, Poisoned begins with The Diagnosis, where Svein explains how we can each identify the personal poisons that are negatively impacting on our lives and offers short questionnaires whose answers will form the basis of your treatment plan. He then introduces The Process, a section complimented by a series of deeply personal anecdotes and his reactions to the field of ‘positive thinking’. Additionally, Svein reveals the techniques behind removing our poisons and introduces one of his key themes which is the action of taking responsibility for your own state of mind. We then move straight into the proactive second stage where we are invited to take part in a detox, Three Days to A Position-Free Life. This activity is designed to kick-start the process of becoming #NotPoisoned. During these three days, Svein prompts each of us to engage in important self-visualisation exercises and hands-on actionable steps -including incorporating regular mental exercises into our daily routines in order to help develop positive routines. Although a three-day plan, Svein is quick to highlight that his methods aren’t a quick fix like many detoxes where you feel good for a week, or a few months at best, before slipping back into bad habits. With this in mind, he explores the ways we can ensure the poisons are kept under control in more detail in the aptly named third part, The Rest of Your Life.
But the benefits don’t stop there. Not wanting to simply offer a written guide, Svein has gone one step further and developed an interactive free companion app that offers personalised reminders and spoken affirmations that can accompany you wherever you go and keep you on the positive track that the book helped you start! With this progressive combination Svein hopes to offer a stimulating, adaptable and engaging lifestyle choice that will help everyone to become #NotPoisoned for the rest of their lives.
