A Journey Back to Self, Using Personal Truth as Your Compass

PP- Cover 1568px x 2500px.jpg


This is a journey into the clarity of who you really are.

A compass, pointing north, only gets pulled off its course by magnetic interference. What if we had our own personal compass and what if we could learn how to consciously navigate our lives from it?

Who is this book for?

Pure Pilgrimage was written for conscious truth seekers who yearn for greater self-understanding and personal growth.

This book is for you if you:

  • Have difficulty speaking your truth

  • Feel that you can’t be yourself

  • Don't feel heard by others

  • Are afraid to say what you think

  • Avoid conflict

  • Doubt your own intuition

In the early 2000s, I had an epiphany that offered me a deep understanding of the wounds of my past and how I had let them stop me from living as my true self. The results of this experience were transformational, particularly for my marriage and other close relationships. Any and all fear to communicate my deepest self had vanished and I was now free to not only speak my truth, but also to finally love and accept myself unconditionally. (Read about this journey in my first book Can I Be Me, Without Losing You?)

I have discovered how to tap into my own compass guided by truth, and I want to help you do the same.  In Pure Pilgrimage, I outline my seven steps for change allowing you to discover how to:

  • Speak your truth with compassion in any situation

  • Dispel all fears and doubts you may have about yourself

  • Express yourself clearly and confidently from your heart

  • Be received openly by others

  • Welcome conflict as an opportunity for growth

  • Trust yourself

  • Deliver your truth fearlessly!

  • Love and accept yourself unconditionally

I offer exercises and stories from my own experience as well as wisdom from other teachers. This book is an inspiring guide to anyone who wants to learn to dispel fear, speak their truth with compassion, and understand more about life and themselves.

If you are not feeling content, at peace, or happy with your life, or if you are curious to see what living from your truths and being guided from your own compass could mean, this book may have the answers you have been looking for.

Chental interweaves personal and challenging aspects of her own life’s journey to demonstrate the ways and means she, herself chose to courageously stay true to herself and her life’s purpose.

Specifically, Chental's book can assist anyone who wants to break free of areas of residual fear, anger, hurt and unforgiveness and transition towards their own inner wisdom and truth. She does this by providing step-by-step exercises to address these difficult areas. These exercises focus the reader to go beyond fear and move into the strength and vibrancy of our authentic, deeper selves - where we are more powerfully grounded in love.

This book matters, because for every one of us who can be encouraged to more fully and truthfully embrace our uniqueness, from a place of integrity, self-acceptance and compassion - we can then become positive change-makers for ourselves and for others. Being truthful about ourselves can undoubtedly be a life-long journey. In this book, Chental has offered a guiding light.”

“…I literally consumed the first chapter of your book. It is exactly what I needed at this moment...so much so that I feel like crying — feel some relief that I’m not some freak that is all alone. I’m at that place in my life where I am so stubborn about speaking my truth, but I am not feeling the grace part yet. I’ve always wanted to be seen as ‘good’ but lately I have this rebellious force within that doesn’t care what anyone thinks of me. I’ve felt like everyone around me is confused about me, and simply doesn’t get me. I love the Deepak quote about being a victim, but now it’s time for me to take responsibility for how my life and health unfold from here. I’m going to make the right choice. Thanks so much for sharing your courageous journey of stepping into the truth of who you are with us. Pure Pilgrimage is the perfect title, by the way. Lots of love.” - Jeanette
