Calling You – Book Review


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.

Namaste!

Eat Right with THE CHAKRA ENERGY DIET – Free Download


The Chakra Energy Diet coverAre you eating right? Do you understand that it’s not your fault if you’re not? Learn what may be sabotaging your best efforts to be as healthy and energetic as possible… Get over the mid-summer blues with a fresh approach to choosing the right foods for your particular needs, based on the rainbow chakra system…

The Chakra Energy Diet is FREE FOR DOWNLOAD to any reading device through Friday, July 17th! Just CLICK HERE<<<<<<<

Why did I write The Chakra Energy Diet? So many of my friends and students have told me that they’ve tried every diet, but in the end, NO amount of willpower can stop them from gaining back the weight and more. Looking for answers took me right to the Chakras, and how we need to feed them with food that’s full of energy instead of processed, addictive, chemical-laden ingredients.

Ann Doherty, RN, CDE, a Diabetes Educator, and Serge Kahili King, PhD, a Huna healer, added their extensive knowledge on how we’re sabotaged by our own bodies’ stress responses and by the food industry to have cravings and overeat. Even better – they offer stress-busting solutions. Look with me at which of your chakras have been stressed, and follow my easy suggestions to quickly move into balance.

Here’s what one reviewer, Mary Jo Shaffer, Co-Owner of Heart Projects and author of Rainbow Eyes: Chakramid Reflections, said about The Chakra Energy Diet:

A Balanced Recipe for Vibrant Health and Well-Being

There are so many things that I love about this book; first and foremost is that Becca Chopra shares her extensive wisdom to help you optimally feed not only your physical body, but your subtle, or nonphysical body, as well. And she does this in a very balanced way, providing a virtual treasure chest of tools that include real, health-giving foods; meditations and breath work; affirmations and healing activities, and specific yoga poses.

Becca begins by pointing out the breakdown in the conventional American diet, which is loaded with sugar, processed foods, GMOs and soda. Then she points the way to a better way of eating that actually nourishes body, mind and spirit. She also speaks at length about how stress and your own insecurities about your body can stand in the way of you reaching your health and weight goals and how you can lift those blocks.

Next, taking you on a systematic journey through your chakras, Becca introduces each of these seven major energy centers to you and helps you to pinpoint your own weaknesses and imbalances. She then offers a wealth of information for you to use in nourishing your physical body and revitalizing your chakra system.

The book ends with appendixes that include a “Chakra Yoga Flow” sequence to balance your seven chakras and also “The Circle of Joy Breath” that integrates Body, Mind and Spirit. The instructions are clear and detailed enough so that even a beginner can complete the sequences.

All in all, this delightful, easy-to-read guidebook is a feast for the senses served up in Becca’s expressive writing style, complemented by beautiful photography of food recipes and yoga poses.

The Unity Oracle: Review and Author Interview


Unity Oracle coverThe Unity Oracle: A spiritual adventure to save the world is truly an action adventure novel that takes you on a page-turning ride into spiritual awakening. The tale begins with a geologist, Jason, in the Artic Tundra, where he finds the Earth’s energy strong and alive… and his search for precious metals becomes more of a search for his soul.

In an area of high energetic magnitude, surrounded by crystal rock on Chevron Mountain, he enters a portal where he sees translucent visions of people, geometric shapes and symbols, and learns from an Inuit Elder that he is about to begin his karmic path. He will be assisted on this path by many spirit guides and helpers including a gold octahedron, an East Indian Yogi, a Hindu couple, two Madonnas, a Polynesian goddess, and a Native American Indian Chief.

Jason undergoes phenomenal mystical experiences as he travels around the world to spiritual communities such as the Findhorn Foundation and Oneness University. Along the way, he learns much, often putting himself through pain and peril, e.g., when he proves: “Most fear is not even real and the only way to understand that is to step into it.”

Step into it he does, and we grow along with Jason as his wild spiritual adventure encompasses finding 7 golden triangles in mysterious ways that reflect his personal growth and finally combine to become a golden octahedron, The Unity Oracle, that can bring love and healing to our world.

Along the way, Jason undergoes out-of-body experiences, release of entities and primordial emotions, kundalini rising, communicating with angelic beings, accurate premonitions, bilocation, the use of animal totems, visualization and the art of manifestation. Take the ride with Jason through his spiritual boot camp and you too will envision a possible future of beauty, with the Great Spirit working with the Earth and its people.

Joseph D. Drumheller is a spiritual healer and geologist, living on transecting ley lines in the evergreen state of Washington, USA. He describes himself as an international man of mystery, who when he’s not at home writing about the Adventure, is out living it. Here, he answers my questions about The Unity Oracle.

Becca: In general, how much of your book comes from your own personal experiences? 

Joseph: The Unity Oracle is about 20% pure fiction. I’ve lived the rest of it. The inspiration behind the book comes from mystical experiences I’ve had in Alaska, Findhorn, Oneness University and other places in Nature. I’ve also sprinkled in a little wisdom from what I’ve learned through relationships and the internal world of healing.

Becca: Your protagonist, Jason, faces some dangerous, disorienting episodes. Is that par for the course in spiritual awakening?

Joseph: I’m not sure. I don’t know what other people go through. Everyone’s spiritual awakening is a customized gift from the Divine. No two are alike, so it’s best not to compare. The disorienting and dangerous awakenings Jason experiences are a reflection of my own. I’m an Aries. We tend to hit head first.

Becca: What message do you hope readers take away from your book?

Joseph: My first aspiration was to paint a positive vision of the future. We’re in rapidly changing times with uncertainty looming on the horizon. We’re also in an unparalleled time of spiritual awakening. I wanted to combine global spiritual growth with a somewhat realistic outcome. It’s really an adventure about hope.

Becca: On Jason’s adventure, what main spiritual truths are conveyed?

Joseph:

  1. Suffering. Suffering is a result of suppressed pain that gets locked into the subconscious mind. When that happens, pain repeats.
  2. Healing. Suppressed emotion can be healed in meditation. When that’s done, repeating patterns of pain stop.
  3. Relationships. Close connections with people act as mirrors designed to accelerate personal growth. Marriage is the best example.
  4. AwakeningWhen suppressed emotion is healed, it opens the doors to spiritual awakenings. That’s when someone evolves from the understanding of a higher power to the experience of it.
  5. Union. When two people are independently awakened, they can form a bond of spiritual union, which goes beyond the physical and emotional aspects of most ‘normal’ relationships.
  6. Power. When someone is spiritually awakened, they can begin to align their will with the Divine. That creates the dynamics of flow, synchronicity and developing skills that transcend the physical world.
  7. Synergy. Synergy is the exponential multiplier effect applied to spirituality (i.e., the tipping point). Through collective consciousness and intent, we can change the world.

Becca: What is your vision of the Divine?

Joseph: Unfortunately, I’m not a visionary seer or a psychic. That means I don’t see God. I’m a feeler. My connection to a higher power is through a developed level of sensitivity. To me, it feels like electricity running through my body.

Becca: How would you suggest someone approach their desire for spiritual awakening?

Joseph: Aggressively and with their whole heart.  Go for it.

Becca: Do you have a continuing spiritual practice?

Joseph: I meditate daily, but my personal experience of Divine energy is greatly amplified when I work with other people in my healing sessions. It’s a type of synergy.

Becca: How does your non-fiction book, The Subconscious, The Divine and Me, relate to The Unity Oracle?

Joseph: They are more or less the same story. The Unity Oracle is an epic adventure of storytelling. The Subconscious, the Divine and Me is a how-to introduction to spirituality with lots of examples and case studies. Both cover similar aspects on the evolution of spiritual truths.

Joseph Drumheller’s books, The Unity Oracle and The Subconscious, the Divine and Me, are available on Amazon.

Balance Your Chakras, Balance Your Life – FREE KINDLE


Download FREE on Amazon KindleI receive emails every day offering some new (and very expensive) salve, cream or pill for pain relief. All because I bought my mother an ointment for her arthritic knees. Then, I taught her Dynamind, and she now uses this mind-body technique to relieve not only any pain in her knees, but her tension headaches too… balancing her Root and Third Eye Chakras.

I first introduced Dynamind in my book, Chakra Secrets, and over a million people around the world are using it to heal themselves of pain and emotional distress, according to its developer, Hawaiian shaman, Serge Kahili King, Ph.D.  In Balance Your Chakras, Balance Your Life (FREE today and tomorrow on Amazon Kindle) I show how to use DYNAMIND adapted for each chakra, which I find makes it even more effective as an “instant” healing technique.

What have others had to say about this method of chakra healing?

“In this book, Becca Chopra shares how to relax the body and mind enough so that our healing energy can flow freely through our chakras. I learned this “instant healing” Dynamind technique from Serge Kahili King at our yearly Hawaii Health Getaway, but find it even more effective in relieving tension and pain when coupled with chakra visualization and toning, as Becca Chopra describes. Just like regular exercise can keep one’s body and mind toned, using the Dynamind Toners described in this book can keep your chakras and your body in balance.” ~ Ann Doherty, RN, CDE

“I read this book and another of Becca’s, checked out her website, and viewed her video that follows this book. For the first time in 2 years, I am pain free. I am more at peace. THANKS!” ~ Amazon reviewer

Yes, there’s even a video which you can also download for FREE, in which you can follow along as I apply Dynamind to healing pain, aches, and emotional problems associated with each chakra. Balance and Tone Your Chakras can be downloaded on my website at www.theChakras.org.

Happy healing!

Namaste,

AWARENESS IS THE FIRST STEP TO COMMUNING WITH THE INFINITE


Communing with the Infinite took me by surprise – it really did awaken me to new ways to feel more connection with the energy that flows throughout us all.

While I have done chakra work for years, I had only briefly worked with numerology. I have used colors to energize my chakras, but have not worked with the elements of air, fire, water and earth in a systematic way.

The reader can use what feels right to her, to make her feel more connected to the Infinite. I love how Blair offers different tools, such as visioning, journaling and being in nature, that worked for her, to bring her into the present moment, away from her story of pain (which we all have) and to find comfort in her connection to the Infinite, to the energy, the Divine spirit that is always there to inspire us.

The author said she wrote the book to help you discover your true worth, your life purpose and have the courage and guidance to pursue it. She highlights the importance of self-love as she allowed the Infinite source of love to show her how to love herself. This is the first step that all of humanity needs to take. As she writes, “The ultimate truth is ultimate love, which is all there is, because it is the Infinite.”

If you want to feel the Infinite’s presence in a way that resonates with you, in your own individual way, use this book as a map on your path.
Namaste!

BOOKS TO READ IN 2012


Becca, Your recommended reading lists on your website have helped me greatly to find books that will really help me grow as well as keep my interest. Any new suggestions?

Avid Reader

Dear Reader, Thanks for suggesting I share my book reviews. I’m also an “avid reader,” reading as I’m writing 2 new books myself. Here’s a unique, entrancing read by one of my favorite authors, Paulo Coelho:

Aleph
Aleph
by Paulo Coelho

I listened to an interview with Paulo Coelho and it elucidated that this is an autobiographical journey into the mystery of his past lives, as he travels the Trans-Siberian Railroad. Like his fiction, Coelho’s new book offers so much wisdom, not by telling others how to find the answers, but in retelling how he finds his answers about life purpose and our place in the cosmos. I greatly enjoyed Coelho’s magical experience as he lets the universe guide him on his journey, presenting Hilal, a young woman with whom he shared a past life. Going through the “Aleph” or “the point at which everything is in the same place at the same time” with Hilal, enables him to solve a mystery that continued to haunt him in his present life. In the end, the healing power of love, my favorite subject, saves all. As I write a new book which contains a similar theme of past lives, Aleph has been a great source of inspiration to me, as I believe it will be to everyone who reads it.
