The Choice: Midlife Crisis or Midlife Awakening

Midlife is the only stage of our life journey that has the word crisis attached to it. We all know the signs: broken marriages, impulsive career changes, and other major problems. But you can choose a different path.

Now is the perfect time to experience the personal awakening that will transform you and your life.

In Rise & Shine you will discover:

• Practical instructions for discovering the powerful source of truth, wisdom, and love within you

• Supportive straight talk for safely advancing on the four stages of the awakening journey

• Crucial advice for avoiding the traps that can cause major problems

• Powerful insights and inspirational tales about the awakening process

• Useful guidance for aligning the life you live with your personal truth

Whether you feel a burning desire to wake up—or you sense the process has already begun—Rise & Shine is the essential book to help you on your extraordinary journey of self-discovery and transformation.


Rise & Shine follows in the great tradition of mystics who discover and live the spiritual way of self-realization. It is lofty and cosmic, but also an everyday, down-to-earth, step by step guide. This book takes you from ordinary being to shining as the star you are meant to be!”

-James Wanless, PhD, creator of Voyager Tarot


My midlife crisis didn’t feel like some great opportunity at all—certainly not at first. I was searching and frustrated. By most measures my life was good, yet I sensed strongly there was much more than I was experiencing.

I knew deep down there was something truly great I was missing out on.

Only in midlife, when I was finally ready, I discovered the answer was much closer than I ever cared to look.


“Rise & Shine is a concise guide to personal awakening that can be applied to any time in your life. There are many tidbits of truth and wisdom to light your path and Frank shares his awakening process in a way that will help you, too.”

-Margaret Ann Lembo, author of Chakra Awakening


The time for your awakening has come, and you are ready. However difficult your midlife struggles may be, remember that now is the greatest opportunity of your life to awaken to the sacred gift within you. There are no religious or spiritual requirements; awakening is available for anyone who wants it.


You may sense there’s much more to yourself and your life than what you are currently experiencing. And there certainly is: deep within you is a divine and immensely powerful source of light. It is at your core, within your very essence. Whatever struggles you’re going through are the undeniable proof that you are ready to awaken to this incredible gift within you.


“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” —Carl Jung
