The harder we try to change, the deeper in the hole we get. We find a new partner but have the same old fights. We strive for an ever bigger paycheck but end up broke at a higher income bracket. This is what happens when the basic principle of life - the law of emergence - is disrupted, stopping you from knowing that you are the perfect you. There is not a part of you from beginning to end that isn't exactly what you should be.
Emergence provides the foundation to reengage with this ancient principle. In this seven-stage framework, spiritual life coach Derek Rydall shows that we aren't lacking anything; everything we need to fulfill our full potential is already inside us. Backed by an ancient truth that has largely been lost, Rydall changes the conversation around how to achieve your potential by showing you how to activate the genius already in you and empower your purpose in life.

"A profound guide to enlightenment, Emergence is a beautiful reminder that we are not broken." (Mark Porteous, author of Maximizing Your Human Experience)
this is an interesting book but waffles a bit. I would have preferred more tips that I could implement in my life to get me started. I'm sure it's all in there but I'll have to read it again!
Absolutely loved this book, I've bought the hard copy too so I can underline and highlight key points and keep referring back. I love Derek's emergence theory, I highly recommend this book to anyone who's looking for more, who's frustrated in trying and failing to get to the next level. It's narrated by Derek too and is great to listen to.
Epiphany after epiphany. Do the exercises, internalize the teaching and prepare for many of your paradigms to be challenged and changed for the better.
"The missing truth"
cry of sonship
He explained how he grew in the stages of emergance
Remember who you are at your core and that that person is complete and needs to come forth
This book bridges the gap between trying to be enough to excepting and allowing the real you to come forth
"Amazing, Inspiring, Power House, Mood Changer"
Yes, and again and again... This book changes your mood to positive. Rydell just keeps it coming it's a page turner edge of your seat listening book.
The encouragement just keeps coming. Just when you thought you heard the most powerful self awakening line he punches you with another one and another one. I listen to this book on my way to work, while waiting anywhere. Every little opportunity I get I am listening and sharing my experience with others.
When he talks about weeds growing in your lawn as and example of trouble or bad things happening in your life. He says its not abnormal that trouble or problems exist its a part of life and just like you maintain your lawn by pulling up weeds is the same thing you do in life with problems and unexpected things that don't belong.
Know matter how much an oak tree wishes its acorns will grow to be apple trees they will never be an apple tree because they were created to be an oak tree.
I definitely have to read this book a few more times before I master it but I am progressing with the information I have heard thus far. AWESOMENESS, I love this book.
"Finally a full book from the Master teacher"
I love Derek's work and am so glad to see an audiobook by Derek embodying his diverse synthesis.
"A great work for deep knowing and doing!"
Another soul opening process. Will help if you are willing to commit to yourself and do the work.
"Would be a good first step into the genre"
I’ve read a lot of self-help books over the past year, and this one just didn’t speak to me as strongly as many of the other ones. To be sure, there are some good exercises in here, and some great words of wisdom, but I felt they were fewer than in other books. Still, if you are new to the genre, this is not a bad place to start.
[I listened to this as an audio book read by the author. He has a good speaking voice and does a fine job narrating.]
"A modern twist on classic self help"
This was very Uplifting, I felt this was a fresh take on the greatest hits of many spiritual philosophies.
"100% worth the read"
Out of the dozens and dozens of self-improvement type books I've read, this is one of my favorites. Derek did a fantastic job at communicating the powerful message of emergence.
Loved the book! Really enjoyed Derek's reading of "his" book! A project you will need to really invest some time in.
"A good listen"
I enjoyed listening to this book. Derek has a wonderful speaking voice and is able to read his book with enjoyment making it pleasant to listen
