Musings and Reviews of Metaphysical, New Age and Meaningful Writings


Chakra Diaries Book CoverIf your chakras are blocked or closed, your ability to give and receive love will also be blocked. Relationships will be rocky, and your ability to feel love and happiness will be locked away.

The participants in my Chakra Workshops keep journals which clearly show how a blocked chakra can also block love in your life. And my book, based on these journals, The Chakra Diaries, shows how using meditations and the other tools described, can lead to happier endings.

Summer is a great time to catch up on your reading, so I’m giving away one of my books for four weeks, while I finish my fifth. Until this Friday, you can download a Free Kindle of The Chakra Diaries.

The book is full of life’s struggles (yes, even money issues) that can be fixed with love. Every difficult relationship or situation can be remedied with love. Any chakra blockage may be healed and opened through love. The healing power of love can change things in an instant.

HERE’S HOW BALANCED CHAKRAS CAN IMPROVE YOUR LOVE LIFE:
ROOT CHAKRA – When you feel grounded and safe, you feel like you belong and are able to be a more responsible partner.
SACRAL CHAKRA – When balanced, your creativity and sexuality are free-flowing, and you are able to be a more romantic partner.
SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA – With your personal power chakra balanced and your self-love in place, you will feel the confidence necessary to find and win your soul mate.
HEART CHAKRA – Love and compassion, the keynotes of a balanced Heart Chakra, will help you retain your relationships, through better or worse.
THROAT CHAKRA – With the ability to speak your truth about your needs and wants, your relationships will be more harmonious and fulfilling.
THIRD EYE CHAKRA – As you increase your intuition, you will have a closer bond, not only to your higher self, but to your loved ones.
CROWN CHAKRA – As you channel the divine love of the universe, you will be better able to act from a place of love in all areas of your life.

I’m hoping you’ll download a copy of The Chakra Diaries and be inspired by the healing power of love as well.

Namaste!

Many thanks to guest reviewer Heather Corbet, who is a spiritual mentor, medium and Reiki Master.

inspirations-coverInspirations by Stephanie Clark is a guidepost, illuminating the way back to your authentic self. This book will help you open yourself up to new perspectives, and will allow for a vast array of new opportunities to come your way. Your sense of fulfillment will deepen, and you will gain an increased understanding of your true essence, which is pure love.

As a mental health provider, Stephanie Clark knows the human experience all too well. After years of working with patients who were grappling for understanding of their place in this world, Stephanie began seeing similarities, a common thread of limiting and false perceptions, which were holding her patients back. To further assist and understand this process, Stephanie began furthering her own spiritual journey in order to seek answers.

During meditation and journaling sessions, images and ideas started to flow that allowed Stephanie to see her own limiting beliefs and perceptions in a new light. Then like an artist to canvas, Stephanie took the images received and narrated them into stories of hope and love. As she was witnessing a transformation in her own life, Stephanie felt inspired to share these uplifting messages with others.

As you explore the exercises and reflections in Inspirations, there is opportunity to witness your own transformation, as you are invited to take the most meaningful journey, which is the empowering journey within.

INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR STEPHANIE CLARK:

1. How did the idea for Inspirations start?

The initial seed for this book started a year ago, when I began to work with a spiritual mentor. Prior to that, I had been feeling an urge to look further within myself, but wasn’t sure how exactly to do it. By working with a mentor, I was able to open up a part of myself that I did not even know existed! I started to write stories from images that I would receive in meditation practice. I could see these rich visual images in my mind and then was able to translate them into short stories. I had the idea to make the stories into a workbook format in February of this year and the rest of the pieces all seemed to fall together within a few months.

2. What themes are present in your book?

The themes of Inspirations speak to the issues of worthiness, overcoming doubt, releasing limiting beliefs and beginning to live from a place of authenticity. Each story revolves around self-love. I feel most of the struggles that we face as humans can be traced back to the root feeling of being unlovable in some way. Every person can relate to not feeling good enough, which is why I feel this work speaks to people no matter what their spiritual background is. This is also why I wanted the book to focus primarily on self-acceptance, as once you truly believe that you deserve an abundant existence, then you will start to see miracles manifest in your everyday life.

 3. Can you explain the workbook format further?

 Inspirations contains 21 brief daily stories which are 2-3 pages in length. Each story is designed to ignite a spark for further self-reflection. I envisioned this book to be a devotional of sorts, for the reader to review the daily reflections, ponder the messages, and then do the exercises throughout the day. The exercises themselves are mindfulness practices, meditations and visualizations.

 4. What would you most want readers to take away from reading your work?

 The main message that I want to share is one of hope. I feel that we are all worthy of having an enriching life, full of love. My intentions for writing this book were for the reader to feel empowered, needed, and wanted in this life.

 5. What advice do you have for other first-time authors who feel they have inspiration to share?

 My advice would be to develop a daily spiritual practice that resonates with you. This could be anything from meditation, to mindfulness practices or prayer. I believe that developing a sacred place between you and Spirit allows for your authentic messages to flow, which then ultimately will speak to the heart of your readers. Simply put pen to paper, suspend your self-judgments and let your inner spirit share your gifts with the world.

Inspirations is available on Amazon.com in both Kindle and paperback editions.

Namaste!

Thanks to guest reviewer, Leslie Powell Shankman, who offers this information on Calling You, which is an Award-Winning Finalist in the “New Age” category of the 2016 International Book Awards, and Second Prize Winner at the Amsterdam Book Award contest in the Spiritual Book category.

CallingYou_jpgCalling You, by Dr. Beatrix Czeizel and Aniko Gresko, recently translated from Hungarian into English, is a very unique book and as such defies easy categorization. In looking at the Table of Contents, one might be thrilled and intrigued by the promise of the information within. Or, one might find the span of chapter claims to be audacious. For this book delivers no less than an undistorted history of the Christ Soul, the Holy Family, and the purpose of their presence in the arc of Creation throughout the history of the Earth and the Cosmos. And this means that it offers a story that is so much more comprehensive and spectacular than the thin slice of history from 2000 years ago that humanity holds in current understanding.

Who are the authors? How did they get this information? How can they lay claim to such fantastic insights? They too, defy easy categorization. While one might cast their work as “New Age,” it would be a mistake to write them, or this book, off as light and unsubstantiated fantasy. In society’s terms, Dr. Beatrix Czeizel is an M.D. with a trained specialty in homeopathy. Both authors are healers in the deepest sense and have helped thousands of people in finding and solving the roots of physical disease that come from the more amorphous levels of the soul.

Both authors experienced car accidents in their 20’s, near-death experiences, entering a beautiful and expanded understanding of life. They could have slipped easily into that infinite freedom, but accepted the challenge of coming back. Beatrix was shown a beautiful light package at the bridge between the worlds and returned to make unraveling that her life’s work. When she came back, that bridge into a broader reality stayed open. Using the gifts of expanded vision that resulted from their accidents, Beatrix and Aniko have been exploring the vaster Cosmos and reporting on it ever since. English readers are fortunate to have access to two of their books, Stellar Nations-Soul Families, The Cosmic History Chronicles of the Milky Way Galaxy, and now, Calling You.

Calling You is essentially the diary of daily meditations which the authors refer to as “attunings.” Perhaps the sincerity of their hearts can be measured by the fact that the attuning sessions for this book involved sitting in an emptied, receptive state, waiting and listening for 7-12 hours at a time for almost a year and a half, from August 2011 through 2012. The cycle of life for the authors seems to involve being called into these “attunings” to receive information, integrating it, teaching it to a loyal group of students and then turning that knowledge into books (six so far) and over 50 guided meditation CDs.

In entering the attunings for Calling You, the prayer of the authors hearts was to be worthy to receive the true understanding of the Christ Soul and his mission, the true scope of his relationship with Mary Magdalene, the truth of the family they created and the truth of the principal characters that surrounded them. The resulting messages are nothing short of revolutionary and offer healing and a course correction for every person who reads and engages with Calling You. The book is organized in the order that the messages were received over that year and a half and as such it is a beautifully deliberate initiation journey. Each level of understanding creates the platform for the next level.

The ultimate aim of the book is no less than creating a pathway for the reader to learn how to wake up the seeds of Christ consciousness in their heart and being. The authors explain this as a consciousness that has nothing to do with religion or even with Christianity; this is the consciousness that we are all inherently capable of and need to move into to evolve humanity beyond the current expressions of strife. They cast Christ consciousness as a living and practical quality and ability of the heart by which a human being can become capable of operating the attributes of the Seven Wisdoms of Christ (unconditional love, acceptance, compassion, giving, forgiving, faith and trust in the power of the Light) simultaneously, in every minute, in every direction of life.

The title, Calling You, is apt. If your heart and curiosity spark to this beckoning and to the beautiful cover and presentation of the book, it is for you. This book offers so much loving explanation through vivid stories and is enhanced with full color pictures, suggested practices and rendering poems that distill and capture the human/cosmic journey. If you are drawn to respond to the call, you will truly enter a new and vast world. This world is not just the book, this world is the expanse and unexplored reaches of your own heart. The authors sum it up well in the introduction, “In reality, this is not a third dimensional book; the message manifested on the pages of this book is a multidimensional, living reality. This message is the map of a spiritual pathway which one must travel to unveil and understand the inner compulsion of one’s being. This message resonates with the hidden intention of the heart that is buried inside of all humans….”

Calling You educates also on the advances in scholarly research into the life and times of Jesus, showing us that the natural inclination of the current age is to inquire more deeply into the limited story of Christ that has been put forth by the institutionalized Church. Somehow we know there is more, that something is missing. It is the authors’ gift to humanity that they can ground us in the new and respected research and then take us well beyond that into our cosmological history and into our own hearts. If you truly engage with Calling You, you will not walk away from this book as the same person who entered it.

For more information, see www.stellarnations.com. The book is also available on Amazon.

Namaste!

FullSizeRender-1Louis Alan Swartz is the author of Constructed of Magic and Other Poems on the Immortality of the Human Spirit, in which he ruminates on what would life be like if you knew you were an immortal spiritual being. “It is my viewpoint that each man has his own unique magnificence regardless of race, religion, nation, tribe, station in life, customs and beliefs…” he writes.

Constructed of Magic and Other Poems on the Immortality of the Human Spirit is a refreshing collection of poems that explore the beauty of who we are as spiritual beings. Our ability to love, dream, create futures, even die with dignity, are all part of who we are and why we are here. These poems don’t pretend to give final answers to any of the big questions about life, but they do help us to look and come to our own understanding.

Here, Louis Alan Swartz tells us more about his ideas on the human spirit and shares a poem from his new book:

“I was asked to write something about the human spirit. I appreciate the invitation.To me, writing about the human spirit is writing about the happiest thing there is in the universe.

I have a certainty that the individual human spirit is immortal. This is not a certainty that I feel compelled to push off on others.. What a man believes is his sacred prerogative and is due an unconditional respect.

However, since I have been asked what I believe and what I know, I am happy to reply.It is my certainty that each individual person is immortal in the most practical sense. It is the concept that he is aware of himself as a personal being from life to life unconditionally. He, as a spiritual being does not know death. It is immortality as described in Webster’s Encyclopedic Dictionary: not liable or subject to death; undying; not liable to perish or decay. That says it quite clearly. The human spirit is immortal.

There is another aspect to this which is important to mention now that I have been asked.This individual spiritual being is possessed of certain qualities. Among these qualities is an enduring kindness and an unflagging willingness and desire to help his fellow man. These qualities are inherent.

There is more, much more, but this is a good start. Below is a section from a poem from my book, Constructed of Magic, that addresses this subject.”

 Spirit

The actual spirit is neither gossamer*

nor ethereal* by nature,

though could be as it wished.

A spirit can be thunderous,

as solid and muscular as a Sumo Wrestler

or as sweet and soft as baby skin,

the wash of dew upon

an autumnal meadow

at dawn.

 

A spirit can be utterly robust

and in your face.

Belly laughter and drunken

passion, brawling, boisterous

and strong of lung

in one minute

and deer silent, delicately quiet

and alert in the next.

Give me an actual spirit

and I’ll give you the world.

*Gossamer—light, thin and filmy. Ethereal very light, airy. (Webster’s New World College Dictionary)

Screen Shot 2016-03-29 at 7.01.17 AMIf you have ever wondered about the meaning of life, the pursuit of happiness, or are simply on your own spiritual quest, guest reviewer Constance Messmer, an Author, Speaker and Educator, recommends The Six Principles of Enlightenment and Meaning of Life:

It is an intellectual and spiritual work that explains the six significant universal truths woven throughout science, religion and philosophy. These principles draw upon thousands of years of wisdom and are presented in a concise, accessible format. Each principle is defined and has an explanation on its application to life; they are further supported by quotes of wisdom from Buddha, Albert Einstein, Rumi, Stephen Hawking, Jesus.

Russell Anthony Gibbs is a new voice in the world of spirituality/science and enlightenment. His work The Six Principles of Enlightenment and Meaning of Life is a well written and articulate work that helps readers understand the Universe or God, if you will, and our relationship to it. It is concise but amazingly covers the complex principles quite well.

The author’s voice is extremely clear and he supports his arguments with a wealth of meaningful quotes from both scientists and spiritual authorities. This book is a significant summary of the most profound spiritual, scientific and philosophical principles covering the span of human history. I would highly recommend it to anyone who has ever thought about the meaning of life, the pursuit of happiness, or are simply on their own spiritual quest.

INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR RUSSELL ANTHONY GIBBS:

What compelled you to write this book?

Gibbs: My intense desire for answers, understanding and enlightenment compelled me to seek out wisdom and write this book. I first and foremost compiled this information for myself, and now am ready to share it with the world.

What is Espresso Wisdom?                      

Gibbs: Espresso Wisdom is my brand of communication style. Having read vast amounts of spiritual, scientific and philosophical material, I realized that I prefer to express wisdom in brief, powerful quotes and concise paragraphs rather than complicated, long-winded explanations. Espresso Wisdom is short, strong, rich insight. Like espresso coffee, it is an intense jolt of enlightenment. Enlightenment is an awakening, and Espresso Wisdom is meant to help jump-start you on your journey.

Who influenced you the most in your quest for enlightenment?

Gibbs: Einstein, Buddha, Rumi and Jesus are my greatest influences and their quotes truly speak to me. I also found the channeled material of the entities Seth and Abraham to be amazing rich and useful. These six teachers each have slightly different ways to explain complex concepts. When you hear the different explanations and compare, you can get a much better understanding of their messages.

What’s next, any future books?

Gibbs: This first book is intended as an intellectual overview of enlightenment and to help explain the big picture. It will be the first in a series of eight books in the nonfiction genres of spirituality/science and personal transformation. Each of the six principles will be expanded into its own book and the final book will be an expansion on the meaning and purpose of life. These next seven books will focus much more on how to live the principles. All of these books will provide positive and empowering messages for their readers.

A Deeper Meaning…

The ocean symbolizes God or the Universe. Rumi is revealing that we are not an insignificant part (drop) of God/the Universe but rather all of God/the Universe is contained within us. This is an enormous concept to comprehend.

The Six Principles of Enlightenment and Meaning of Life will be available on April 15, 2016. To read an excerpt and for more Espresso Wisdom, see RussellAnthonyGibbs.com
