An Elegant Echo shares true stories that rely on real-life scenarios from C. J. Hoffman’s forty-plus years of counseling experience, ultimately providing the encouragement and mind tools that will teach others how to change their negative thought patterns with positive affirmations. Hoffman addresses such common negative imprints as guilt and abandonment by offering stories that provide realistic examples of how negative words and situations imprinted during childhood can create unhealthy situations during adult life. Each story includes a valuable life lesson followed by a mission section that clarifies the subject of the story and concludes with a thought-provoking section that illustrates how the consistent overlay of simple positive statements in one’s life can eliminate confusion in subconscious thought processes. From the story of Gene, a pastor whose negative imprints prevented him from trying anything new, to Annie, who needed to forgive her mother before she could forgive others, Hoffman offers a diverse collection of real-life experiences that exemplify how a few simple words from our past can affect our subconscious thoughts for a lifetime. An Elegant Echo provides practical, easy-to-use tools that will help others change the way they think, ultimately encouraging remarkable changes that lead to fulfillment and joy.
