Feels wonderful to come to the end of challenging day to find a soulful book review in my inbox: (Thank you) <3 :) “If this book has made its way to you…” I took that as a sign., October 22, 2014 By C&S - "And it was right on the mark. Another reviewer (Vania M.) said it really well, that we live a disconnected world, that we use more Tylenol (red wine, tv, internet) than is healthy. Everyone is “plugged in”, “online”, “dialed in”, and Over-Scheduled! It’s exhausting. Even if it’s not you. I used to meditate more, pray more (pray/meditate). #1: set aside quiet time, like the book recommends. It never occurred to me to simply ASK for guidance when I prayed. So simple and obvious and healthy. There are phrases she repeats that I like, the concept of “highest good”, whether you call it praying or asking or that’s your intention (and she allows for whatever word YOU need, not everyone talks to God, and she recognizes that.) I love that she says, “…let go of frantic activity & meaningless obligations & shift focus to activities you sincerely enjoy & want to spend time doing.” We’re all So Busy being busy, it’s hard to remember if you even Like it or not. And many times she tells you how much you are loved and loveable, and you must learn self-love, self-acceptance and forgiveness. “Be good to yourself and grow at your own pace.” > It’s all really beautiful, if not the easiest homework for some of us. On Angels: okay, believing in angels/ guides/ ancestors, that are with you all of your life can be a LOT for some people. Maybe don’t run to the office and start convincing everyone. But if you’re open to the idea (and you ARE looking at the book, aren’t you? me too, the topic & the cover got me) this is a lovely start. It’s information and inspiration but my favorite thing(s) is the chapter with Prayer Invocation (which is nice if you’re a beginner and don’t want to free-style it) and the guided meditations, one in the back + there’s one on YouTube that’s long & relaxing. You can do this, you can be more connected and calm and loved, it’s not “too much” to believe. It’s lovely."
