Unleash your inner hero

New book ‘Awakening the Soul of Power’ helps individuals answer the urgent call
for heroism today — Award-winning author Christian de la Huerta examines
everyday power struggles and how to responsibly wield personal empowerment

MIAMI — Heroism is historically associated with the likes of brave knights and superhumans, soldiers, and firefighters. More recently, the definition has been expanded to include frontline health workers, teachers, and other essential personnel, but what if every human could tap into their inner hero and realize their full power and potential?

The new book Awakening the Soul of Power, by award-winning author and personal transformation coach Christian de la Huerta, unpacks the power struggles that exist in all humans and redefines what a hero looks like in the 21st century.

“Have you ever held your opinions back in a situation at work or in a relationship, or said yes when inside you really felt no, when asked to do something? Every day there are examples of how we sell out on our power to avoid conflict or gain acceptance,” explained de la Huerta. Awakening the Soul of Power, the first of a three-part series titled Calling All Heroes, helps decode why we get stuck in these power struggles—and how we can redefine our relationship to power in order to better navigate these situations.

“COVID has forced us to expand the way we think about heroism. Also, the issue of power is clearly up for us to continue to redefine as a society. It is time to learn how to feel powerful and how to express that power without abusing it and without bringing someone else down in the process.”

An acclaimed speaker, de la Huerta has shared his message at many settings including universities, conferences, corporate trainings, spiritual communities and the TedX stage. In his book, which multiple-Grammy Award-winning singer Gloria Estefan endorsed as “a balm to the soul of anyone searching for truth and answers to life’s difficult questions,” de la Huerta hopes to help transform the reader’s relationship to power, and to themselves.

“It’s time to stop cheating yourself, selling out, and playing small,” he says. “The world needs heroes to answer the call of the modern world—and that hero exists in each person willing to tap into their power.”

Awakening the Soul of Power is available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever books are sold.
