“I was introduced to this book by my incredible kundalini yoga teacher Sukhdev Jackson ( http://www.aykanna.com ). I now keep this tiny little manual in my purse all day everyday and I pull it out whenever I’m feeling sad, stressed, or overwhelmed. After reading some passages I’m reminded of the power of positivity and immediately begin to shift my thoughts back to gratitude, joy and happiness.
One of Dorothy Jean Hulst’s favorite books was As A Man Thinketh, by James Allen in which Allen expressed his belief that an individual, through the power of positive thought, forms their character and consequent happiness. Hulst was inspired by the content of Allen’s book but tired of the mental exercise required to substitute feminine equivalents for masculine terms. Using a pencil, she crossed out all masculine references, replacing them with feminine words. The result, As A Woman Thinketh, allows women to identify directly and personally with Allen’s concepts.
Yay for Allen, but especially YAY for Jean Hulst’s masterful and empowering undertaking to replace the masculine references in order for women to connect more deeply and fully to this extremely powerful philosophy. “
