You Were Not Born to Suffer:
Love Yourself Back to Inner Peace, Health, Happiness & Fulfillment
Discover why all suffering, illness, and unhappiness are cries from your soul asking you to fulfill your life’s purpose, realize your greatest potential, and ultimately, love, honor, and value yourself in every moment, situation, and relationship.
Born out of Blake D. Bauer’s personal healing and spiritual journey, as well as his professional counseling, coaching, and healing success with thousands of people internationally, You Were Not Born to Suffer offers a unique combination of deep insight and practical guidance that will empower you to transform your suffering in the present and move forward immediately in creating what you want and need most in your life right now.
Written in heart-centered, easy-to-read language, You Were Not Born to Suffer will guide you through the most challenging obstacles and lessons you’ll face in your quest for healing, purpose, success, and overall freedom. Above all else, this book will enable you to relate to yourself with unconditional love, kindness, and compassion so you can transform the core psychological, emotional, and physical blocks that are sabotaging your health, happiness, and overall wellbeing.
You Were Not Born to Suffer offers a refreshing integration of ancient and timeless wisdom, synthesized from various spiritual and medical traditions, that goes straight to the heart of our deepest wounds, needs, desires, and dreams as human beings. Once there, it inspires unconditional love, respect, acceptance, and forgiveness in the places that are universally the most difficult for us to embrace. At the same time, it also clarifies how to effectively direct your thoughts, words, and actions toward creating the “best” in every aspect of your personal and professional life.
If you are serious about healing yourself, fulfilling your life’s purpose, and awakening spiritually, then this book will support you to take your life, your power, and your destiny back into your own hands so you can live your life to the fullest—without regret.

Essential reading for everyone who wants to be happy
I have read this book from cover to cover and am now reading through again more slowly and working through the examples. I feel all of my self-development throughout my life has been preparing me for the moment I purchased this book. This is the roadmap that is leading me to ultimate happiness. I think all of the moments leading up to this were necessary so that I was ready to do the work in this book when I found it.
I have met Blake Bauer and he radiates joy and love. It is clear to me when listening to him that he has suffered and has lived through all the advice he gives in this text in order to achieve unconditional love of himself. I know I am on the right path to achieving happiness through fulfilling the exercises in this book. I would unreservedly recommend this book to anyone that is breathing. Even if you are not quite ready to take on everything in here, even just making a start with some of the reading to get your thinking processes moving in the right direction can move you closer to your ultimate goal." -Avid Reader (Melbourne Australia)
'You Were not Born to Suffer' was a pleasure to read. It is so easy to get caught up in the belief that our suffering is caused by what's "out there" and therefore we have no control over how we feel. Blake reminds us with his gentle, supportive words that we really can choose to see things differently and that by changing our inner dialogue and perceptions, we can step out of the habits of self recrimination and pain and into self worth and happiness. He also invites us to go deeper by asking "Healing Now" questions at the end of each chapter and than gives us "Love Yourself Now" affirmations so we can practice self care. This is a book I will be sharing with friends who are going through difficult times." -Joan Schaublin (Indiana)
