About this audiobook

Trust Your Heart: Lead Your Journey to Self-Discovery From Within is a deep dive into self-awareness, self-trust, and self-empowerment from Lebanese-Canadian activist, author, poet, educator, and speaker Najwa Zebian. On this powerful new journey, Zebian provides the necessary tools to help you begin to heal old wounds, embrace your intrinsic value and worth, let go of outdated notions about traditional gender roles, and get clear about what you really want in an intimate relationship with another human being. She also guides you toward finding the right connection, one built on an unshakable foundation of genuine love, caring, and mutual respect. 

Zebian begins by gently walking you through meditative inner reflections on the pain and heartbreak of subconscious childhood trauma and past failed relationships, using fascinating and illuminating examples from her own experience growing up in a reserved, patriarchal family in Lebanon. Encouraging you to let go of the trap of “comparative pain,” she helps you to understand how, when, and why certain choices were made and empowers you to make very different ones in the future that will truly reflect who you fundamentally are. 

Through a series of simple questions, she supports you every step of the way in gaining valuable insight into how to rebuild yourself after someone else broke you. As you discover your often detrimental and self-sabotaging conditioning about relationships, you'll learn to forgive yourself for past failures and reframe them as opportunities to grow. Slowly, you’ll begin to trust your body and leave your safety blanket behind, while setting clear boundaries as you redefine your ideal relationship from a newly fortified place of self-trust, self-understanding, and self-love.

Author

Najwa Zebian

Najwa Zebian is a Lebanese-Canadian activist, author, speaker, and educator. Her passion for language was evident from a young age, when she delved into Arabic poetry and novels. The search for a home — what Zebian describes as a place where the soul and the heart feel at peace — was central to her early years. When she arrived in Canada at age sixteen, she felt unstable and adrift in an unfamiliar place. Nevertheless, she completed her education and went on to become a high school teacher, speaking at multiple schools about poetry, diversity, inclusion, education, equity, culture, and more. She has both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in education and a doctorate in educational leadership. Her first students, a group of young refugees, led her back to her original passion: writing. She began to heal her sixteen-year-old self by writing to heal her students. Since self-publishing her first collection of poetry and prose, in 2016, Zebian has become an inspiration to millions of people worldwide and a trailblazing voice for women everywhere — name-dropped by the New York Times, HuffPost, and CBS News, among others. Zebian’s unique journey of breaking out of the mold that society and culture suffocated her with has been an inspiration to millions of people worldwide — many of whom have chosen to have her words tattooed on their bodies. Her ability to articulate soul-deep feelings sets her apart from the rest of the world; that uniqueness coupled with her extensive knowledge of educational pedagogy and teaching in a manner that effectively educates makes her a powerhouse in the field. Through her five books, her podcast (Stories of the Soul), and her own digital school (Soul Academy), she continues to give a voice to countless souls out there aching to be heard.

    Finally!!! For years now, I have had an awareness of being the common denominator in my numerous unhealthy, failed relationships. Since that realization, I have gathered little morsels and tid-bits of wisdom with each heartbreak and disappointment but never enough to string together an explanation or an understanding of what the issue was and for certain a way to maybe FIX it. In this book, I finally found the clarity and understanding of not only why I was doing the things and feeling the ways I have over and over again butbalsona clear understanding of concise actions to take to actually change my unhealthy thoughts and actions in order to find happiness for myself... within myself. I can sincerely say this book has the potential to change your life. It has mine!

    Definitely gave me the tools I need to move forward from my heartbreak. I took a lot of notes! Thanks to the author. I can feel her past pain as well as my current one being similar. Therefore the wisdom she imparts in this book, I feel will be applicable to me as well.
