I wrote What They Don't Want Us to Know several years ago and I recently updated it. There is an urgency to this work, as more and more Black people are being killed by the police and the authorities (and, it seems, any random white person). Plus there are many other ongoing issues which affect our communities. For more about this, click here to download Why We Need to Heal, which is a free download. Our communities need practical, effective solutions.
There are those in life
that have a special calling, a calling that beckons us to seek out
ways to enrich and improve their lives so that they may do the same
for others. People such as this, with this burning desire in life,
often find themselves in roles such as mentors, gurus, teachers,
educators, and even parents. I myself am a parent and I have learned
(be it the hard way) that in order for me to be able to be the best
mother, the best sister, the best friend, the best daughter, and the
best me I could be will require that I work towards improving myself
in every aspect of my being.
We all want to have it
all, but why does it seem so elusive and hard to obtain? Maybe it is
because our whole lives, we have been living under the illusion that
the key to our happiness lies in some external source, when in all
actuality genuine, undying happiness sprouts forth from within.
What They Don’tWant Us to Know is a book that addresses those components of the
lives of Black people - people of African heritage - that are most
important in pursuing the best you. The chapters on Gratitude,
Mindfulness, and Manifestation are only a few of the many nuggets of
wisdom lent in this book that you can implement into your journey
toward self-discovery. Learning how to release negative blockages,
limiting beliefs, and fears were lessons I found to be highly
beneficial to my overall wellbeing.
All of the information
granted in this well-written, comprehensive guide will lead Black
readers down a path towards lasting joy, peace, abundance, and
prosperity in ways that are easy to implement into the busiest of
lifestyles. I enjoyed the thoroughness of Zhana’s writing and the
way she conveys a message of this complexity and proportion in an
engaging and entertaining manner. Excellent read and I highly
recommend this book to people of African heritage who strive to make
positive change today for a better future tomorrow - for ourselves, for
our families, for our communities and for humanity!
