As she looks into these , the protagonist discovers how her struggles with love, health and wealth have been inherited from generations of female gifts and wounds in her family.

As her Power Hunter Animal follows the scent of her old wounds, the protagonist realizes why and how she's been holding back.

She also realizes the choices she has made that have enabled her to transmute her wounds into her , going from a victim to a . She faces the shocking realization that she is no longer that helpless girl that the family picked on for being weird and crazy.

But she knew this... why is it shocking? Because no matter how healing the realization that you have outgrown your Family Karma is, it is never a happy occasion to feel like the odd-one out.

In fact, she has not stood in her power for fear of once again feeling left out and alone! At least being the Ugly Duckling still kept her in the same universe as her family. Without that oppressive tug-of-war, she is free, but alone.

So that's why she has not fully step up to her potential!

She runs head-on into a new level of insights as she can finally recognize the essential choices that make the difference between staying trapped in your past or using it to reclaim your gifts.

This female journey is written with depth, compassion, humor and the shamanic voice that serves as the thread, weaving a magical net for the reader.

This storybook is easy to read yet full of shamanic wisdom. It is at moments funny and at moments dramatic as the shaman dives beneath the facade of reality to discover the hidden corners of her psyche.
