One Day My Soul Just Opened Up: 40 Days and 40 Nights
Towards Spiritual Strength and Personal Growth
Ordained minister and "spiritual life counselor" Iyanla Vanzant doesn't know the exact moment
when her soul opened up "and the spirit of the divine entered [her] body." But she will always
remember the key insight that opened the door to her soul and simultaneously locked the door to
her insanity: "If you know who walks beside you, you can never be afraid." This is the premise
from which Vanzant has launched her enormously successful 40-day, spiritual self-help program.
One Day My Soul Just Opened Up is designed as day-by-day journal/workbook to help readers
believe in a divine presence while pondering daily spiritual lessons such as simplicity, peace,
compassion, and nonjudgement.
