Wellness strategist Dawn Burnett has an impressive track record for helping people unlock better health and greater vitality. Like all of us, however, she has had a life filled with highs and lows. The child of divorced parents and a survivor of abuse, she was in a toxic marriage and then, just after her divorce, was hit by a drunk driver. These events, and the discovery that her son had a life-threatening condition, led her to a wake-up call. Studying to become an alternative medical practitioner to heal her child, she also sought answers on how to heal her own life. Along the way, she charted a course to ultimate wellness on a path filled with valuable lessons, deep wisdom, and insight on a variety of issues—including personal relationships. She recognized that becoming trapped by the toxic emotions of our past can weigh down our spirit and sabotage any chance we have at happiness today or in the future.
The result is Connect, a light but powerful little book that provides humorous yet effective ways to address key issues facing serious relationships. Filled with personal, engaging stories, complemented by captivating illustrations, it reveals: the pitfalls of dating in the digital age; the many ways we unintentionally sabotage our relationships; why we find ourselves choosing mates from the never-ending 'carousel of losers'; and how we judge ourselves—and others—without mercy. The antidote is a simple, empowering plan readers can implement themselves to heal their own hearts, pinpoint their true dreams and desires, and find meaningful and lasting bonds with their partners — whether they have already met or are still looking. This amazing little book is big on success, and will help readers finally attain what they outwardly say they want—without the emotional resistance associated with trying to change their partner.
Have you reached a level of consciousness where you wake up and ask yourself why you seem to be on a merry-go-round? Do you wonder why the years pass but you find yourself continually back at the same place?
That’s life’s way of show you that something in you needs to change. It’s not what is happening around you.
Maybe you say you want a guy who will love you, settle down with you, and treat you with respect, but you keep attracting the same bad seed: the cheater guy, the abusive guy, or the non-committal guy.
Why does this keep happening? Is it your bad luck or a lack of good men where you live? No, it’s your old, conditioned consciousness showing up as the negative experiences of your past.
These experiences go as deep as your cellular level, and just like other toxins you might ingest, they can make you physically sick. This is why yoga has become so popular; it positively impacts the central nervous system by calming it down. In return, those toxic thoughts that have been trapped for years suddenly start releasing.
So slap on that spandex and get moving. Let your body flow, and soon you’ll be seeing clearly and the merry-go-round will come to a stop. Then it’s your choice to get off of it.
What did you enjoy most about writing this book?
I enjoyed using sarcasm in the writing combined with real humorous dating stories and comical dating poems.
What inspires you?
What inspires me to write is seeing the challenges in the world today, finding a solution so others will be empowered.
Who are some of your favorite authors that you feel were influential in your work?
Tracy McMillan and Steve Harvey have been influential in my work. Both have published dating books clearly identifying there is a problem that needs addressing/resolving.
What do your plans for future projects include?
My plans for future projects include, a series for Connect the next one is about relationships. I also have turned my Huff Post platform into an interview style show just as if it were on air. This supplies me with an amazing opportunity to Connect with the Greats.
Do you ever get writer’s Block? Any tips on how to get through the dreaded writer’s block?
Once I start writing the information just flows and I don’t want to take breaks knowing that if I come back to the writing I will most likely experience a writer’s block. There have been occasions when I was put on the spot by my publisher to come up with new material to add in by a quick time line and that creates writer’s block, the best thing to do is vision the completion of the book rather than focusing on what needs to be done.
