I.M. Heart by Sue P. McDaniel
I.M. Heart, a self-help book by Sue P. McDaniel

I have a wonderful beating heart just bursting with feelings. The story of I.M. Heart is about living with these feelings.

Buy the book

Living from my heart means that I notice, accept and live with my feelings, instead of ignoring or hiding from them. I have feelings — all kinds of them!

Some are happy, warm, and loving, others are grumpy, anxious and fearful. Some are sunny and bright and some are raw and dark. They are still all my feelings.

We all live with feelings. They influence my choices, behavior, work, play and relationships. They tell us what we really want, value and like or dislike. Feelings tell us what is important to us — our gauge for how life is going for us minute to minute each day. I.M. Heart is about connecting, healing and living life to the fullest.

About the author

Sue P. McDaniel, PhD

Sue McDaniel, the author of I.M. Heart, is a teacher with experience at all levels of education. She has developed training materials and delivered programs for government agencies, businesses, and organizations at the state, national and international level. Other professional experience includes research, development, and state agency governance.

McDaniel established Alternative, LLC in 2009 with a mission of "creating possibilities for the future," through books, workbooks and teaching. She believes we either limit or increase our opportunities by our beliefs, attitudes, feelings and thoughts. It is only when we are brave enough to notice, accept and heal ourselves from the inside out that we can achieve our real freedom, peace, joy and potential. We have conquered many frontiers. The one yet to be discovered is the power of the feelings of the heart.

I.M. Heart, Sue's first solo publication, is a spiritual, self-help book that emphasizes healing feelings that are rooted in fear and opening your heart to those rooted in love. This book is for anyone who is willing to take an honest look at the feelings that live in their hearts.

Innocent, yet wise, I.M. Heart represents our guide to understanding ourselves. Deep down, everyone is I.M. Heart, because everyone feels regardless of differences in culture, race, gender and age. Feelings are what binds us all together as one. I.M Heart is both student and teacher of those feelings. We learn from I.M. Heart to listen to ourselves as the student and the teacher in our own lives.

Feelings 101

Stop, look, and listen to yourself. Your feelings are talking to you – or at least they're trying to. Are you listening? Many of us deny or ignore how we feel, but feelings still hang around and trying to talk to us. Feelings affect our choices and actions, every day all day long. Learn some ways to begin opening your heart to your feelings.

Banging My Head Against the Wall

Why is life so hard? It's just not fair! All these horrible things just keep happening to me! If you are banging your head against the wall, this is for you. Learn how you might be sabotaging yourself, and what you can do to change that negative pattern so that you can achieve the life you want.

Who Am I?

Open your heart to listen to what it feels. It wants to get acquainted with you and to share what it knows about your deepest hopes and fears. It wants to connect with you, to help you heal those feelings that hurt, and to show you the unlimited love that is there for you. Learn how to open your heart to your own feelings.

Connecting to Others (heart-to-heart)

Family and friends can provide the richest blessings in our lives — or they can be the biggest dramatic nightmare. Most often we cannot change others, we can change how we respond to them. This requires that we open our hearts to understanding, compassion, and acceptance of each other. Learn ways to connect in a more meaningful manner and how to let go of what doesn't change.

Turn on Your Heart Light

Our hearts are our connection to the divine spirit — the energy of God's love. This love has been and always will be there for us. In this love, we can heal the bruises and scars of living. This light offers peace, compassion, joy, freedom and a love that is so powerful and pure. It feels unbelievable and yet it is very real. Learn how to open your heart to the light of divine spirit.
