Jennifer O’Neill is a psychic and spiritual teacher whose bio says she devotes most of her time to teaching people how to live a healthier, happier life. “Inspirational Quotes” does this so well, she can now relax while we all take advantage of the wisdom, the universal truths she inspires us with in this wonderful book.

Even if you read the book cover to cover, you’ll want to use the book as O’Neill suggests – turning to a page at random whenever needed for just the right message to help you believe in yourself and achieve happiness in your life.

The book’s overall message? That no dream is too big, life is easy and meant to be happy. The author presents Universal Laws, such as “Happiness is not bought, given, earned or learned – it is a state of mind based on your perspective. Happiness is simply a choice.”

There are many quotes on how to find happiness within yourself, your relationships, and in all you manifest in your life. And O’Neill inspires us to manifest greatness by following the Laws of Attraction, with quotes reminding us “…your thoughts send out energy waves. Want to know what you’ve been focusing on? Look around your life.”

I intend to use this wonderful book as oracle cards, to inspire me daily with just the right message to keep me on my path… a path that we’re all on, a path that O’Neill has beautifully laid out in this book.

As I am new to dream interpretation, “Dream Analysis” by Keala Vai was so helpful for me in understanding what my subconscious was telling me in recent, vivid dreams. What I learned by reading Vai’s book has progressively helped me remove “programs” that weren’t serving me, by making me aware of them through the messages of my dreams.

Vai gives a very detailed explanation of the language of dreams, e.g., water represents the subconscious, and even the color of dreams (it’s very exciting to interpret your dreams according to the colors of the chakras). For example, a rainbow or multi-colored aspect in your dream suggests the last phase of enlightenment or a completion in the integration of self at that time, according to Vai.

She then takes the reader through the four parts of dreams – the Exposition or setting of the dream, the Action, the Conflict, and the Lysis or conclusion of the dream, a report on where you are in your unconscious. The author completes the book with many interesting examples of dreams and their interpretations, showing how a dream can be a reflection of what is happening in your unconscious mind.

Once you learn the language of dreams, you’ll be better able to notice the need for change, find solutions to your problems, and release old baggage from the past. For those on a path to knowing themselves better, this book is an invaluable guide.

One of my close friends recently suffered a stroke, and I was drawn to re-read My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist’s Personal Journey by Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D.

What makes this book special is the spiritual insight it offers. When the author’s left hemisphere of her brain was incapacitated by a hemorrhagic stroke, she experienced the spiritual feeling of “oneness” with the universe, feeling no distinction from her body and the rest of the energy molecules around her. In the absence of the judgment of her left mind, she experienced deep internal peace and joy, the “Nirvana” that exists in the consciousness of our right brain. She explained how, at any moment, we can choose to hook into that part of our brain. Meditation is one way, and definitely, a less traumatic way than suffering a stroke. She also offers wonderful insights into quieting the constant “story telling” and chatter of the left brain, to bring you into the now, the peace of the right brain which only experiences the present moment, where there is no fear or anger. I was impressed with her scientific explanations of how we experience these negative emotions physiologically for 90 seconds, but can then choose to let them go and return to a peaceful state.

Taylor learned to reign in the judgment and ego center of her left brain and retain the compassionate feeling of oneness that was her only sensation when the left hemisphere of her brain was impaired. I thank her for sharing her experience and the wisdom she acquired in her journey back to wholeness. She says, “I choose to observe my environment through the nonjudgmental eyes of my right mind, allowing me to retain my inner joy…. it’s really easy to be kind to others when I remember that none of us came into this world with a manual about how to get it all right.”

A fascinating read!
Namaste, Becca Chopra, author of The Chakra Diaries
