Carried away on the waves of these words, traveling inner land and outer realms and seeing myself, feeling myself, in little sentences, that reverberated through me like a gentle earthquake. As she was reading I sometimes felt the urge to want to ask her to stop, pause!, so I could just take it all in, think about some sentences some more and stay with their affect, analyze it. But I didn't. Because another part of me didn't want to brake the flow and felt like I just needed to let go and surrender to where it would take me, for now. There would be other journeys later on. Time to stop and reflect. Now was not that time. Now was the time to be. To surrender. Let it unfold. Let it reveal itself to me as it brought me forth. This book very much made me feel a sense of belonging. I wasn't alone in my confusion, my joy, my yearning. There were others. We came from the same place and have the same destination but our journeys are different. And that left me with a sense of hope and unity that kept lingering in my heart. ...more

For its understanThank you Susan for this handy parenting tool with all its practical 'to-try's and all it's little exercise on reflections and love. For its understanding but encouraging voice to grow and love more. This book was what I needed and I'm grateful to have it to lean on for inspiration as well as a tender reminder that it's all okay and there is nothing that is not an opportunity for growth and strength.
Ps. I LOVE the cover and all the tenderness it exudes !! It is such a vivid reminder that children are just innocent souls and that loving them as we live and learn with them is the key factor. ...more
This book is about so much more than just creating money, as the title might imply. It's about creating all forms of abundance and flow and prosperityThis book is about so much more than just creating money, as the title might imply. It's about creating all forms of abundance and flow and prosperity in your life, including but certainly not limited to, money. It's about how to focus your time and energy and thoughts to your life work, the projects and activities that make you feel joyful and excited and where you are using your gifts and talents for the benefit of yourself and others. And, surprise, surprise; doing just that, will keep you on an energy level that makes you attract more prosperity into your life! Because like attracts like. And this book is very much about how to turn your beliefs around to make them work for you and the good, instead of against you. Complete with very useful and powerful exercises (or playsheets, as they are called), to help you train your visualization skills and enhance your powers. And it really is fun and expanding to do! I will surely be coming back to this book to help remind me and to work with creating and attracting affluence. Thank you for the wisdom and opportunity! ...more

It was very inspiring, the meditations, and the issues on light and dark and how that factors in to the different challenges in the different stages of spiritual development also were quite insightful. This is an author I just cant seem to get enough of. Will be back for more... (i realise this wasnt much of a review, sorry about that)....more
Another Birgit Klein book, another great experience and connection with my spiritual self and the vast, Godlike energy and the sublter, invisible butAnother Birgit Klein book, another great experience and connection with my spiritual self and the vast, Godlike energy and the sublter, invisible but none the less real side to life. I have fallen in love with another book, and I want to carry it around with me everywhere and to just keep it close to my heart, look at it and flip through the pages. It pierced my soul and I just feel so grateful that this was written, that i got to read it, and that i even get to own my very own copy of this book. Whule reading it I both wanted it to last longer, savour it all, and at the same time couldnt really stop myself from wanting to read more, and more, so it was a rather quick read, which is why im even happier to have it sitting on my bookshelf (if its not in my pocket or on my night stand), where i can read it whenever I want.
What was so amazing about it? Hard to explain, because it was more than just what was in the book, it was also the flow and the deep connection i felt, with what was carried through the book, triggered and opened up in me, to the energy inside and all around me. It felt like pulling up the blinds and opening the window and seeing, feeling and interacting with the light, the fresh air, the promise of a new day with the inside and outside world connecting, coming into one, me in the midst of all of it.
bonus info: this book is one of the few of birgits books that are translated into english. It is titled 'I am oneness'....more

Because it brought such comfort, peace and love with it, and helped me open my mind and my heart and connect with my higher self as well as clear my intentions and sharpen my focus. This is a book that is very dear to me, because it has reached my heart and soul as very few books have. I'm utterly grateful to have found this book and for the messages of hope, light, love, strength and power it brings....more

This book went to my core, opened up closed parts of me, so I let in more light, released some pain and struggles and looked at myself and the world with a clearer vision and a more relaxed and assured soul. It came to me at the exact right time where I needed it, and I am so deeply grateful for the healing and the development I experienced, that this book supported me in. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I will treasure you forever and love you till the pages start falling out and then I will love you right back together. You helped me leap more into my own power, my own clarity and my own peace. You helped me open my inner doors to God to Love and to Peace. My soul is able to better hold my calm center as I resonate with the voice of Truth and recognize it in my experience. ...more

It is brilliant and enchanting and true and wise, and elegant and piercing and wonderful and beautiful and magnetic and a so much more I do not have the words for.

His teachings, his persona, his words, his voice, his presence, his caring and loving nature, his peace, his humor, his downtoearth-ness, his smile, his grace. He may not always be all of this, but that is how I know him. From the YouTube videos and the satsang I was lucky enough to attend, here, in Copenhagen where I live. This was my first book with Adya. And I've got to admit: I prefer him live. Or as close to it. I missed his voice, his laugh, and the way he speaks his words that goes right to the core of me and that I carry with me, as reminders. Much of what was said in this book I've already discovered for myself, so I didn't have many revelations. The brick wall image stuck with me. But there are some of the YouTube videos and the satsang that has had more piercing impact on me. Nevertheless, Adya is a teacher whose words and wisdom and presence reach me, deeply and profoundly, just by being close to them, I'm reminded of all this, that lies in me, in the universe. And that makes me better able embrace Life and What is. And that is a gift for which I'm grateful....more

Janssen writes so attentively, poignant and self-revealing, that he feels like a friend, like an actual human being, not just some removed intellectual and it gives meaning and depth and closeness to the book and every line and makes it feel like you're having a conversation; like you're involved too, because he makes himself real, authentic and his questions and personal statements bring out the personal in yourself, as well as the fact that Janssen addresses questions directly to the reader, bringing the reader in closer contact with the material and the author. If only all intellectuals dared write like this - with themselves, the authors, present and human! This book is funny, interesting, important and I want to own it so I can go back and read it a million times over and underline all the great passages and lines. This book, even if it is about psychology, scientific to some extent, is REAL. It is about you and me and our lives and our basic human nature, our commonalities as well as our uniqueness, our creativity, our transcendent selves and godlike nature. This book spoke to my heart, my soul and my human self. I absolutely loved it....more
I can relate. To a lot of Gilbert's perspectives, her personal problems, her spirituality and while I was reading this I was in fact traveling, alone,I can relate. To a lot of Gilbert's perspectives, her personal problems, her spirituality and while I was reading this I was in fact traveling, alone, in order to get a break and just be with me. To Spain and only for a week, but none the less, here I am, a 30 year old woman on a spiritual journey, currently going through a divorce and traveling, in a literal and metaphorical sense, reading about another woman's travels. The similarities doesn't end here. I'm also a chatterbox with an outgoing personality and an inward need for solitude and stability to keep me anchored. And I just so happens to agree with Gilbert on a lot of issues. So yeah, I really, really liked this book. And I don't find anything self-indulgent or whatever else she's been critized for about it. I found it honest, poetic, spiritual, interesting, comforting, beautiful. ...more

Steven writing is inspiring and fascinating and I just want more, more, more. He is a great guide to the mystery of astrology, explaining, showing and gently challenging and encouraging. I will get my hands on a copy of this book and I will surely be coming back to both Steven and astrology. The journey has only just begun ;)...more

What a relief there is 4 more books planned (this is the first 2) and the third one is right around the corner, 2014 sometime, hopefully. I cant wait! :)
This book was a combination of so many things that fascinate, interest and entertain me. The story, the characters and the journey and growth throughout the book really held me captive.
Ill admit the writing didnt blow my mind, and was actually a little too clichee for my taste at places, mostly in some of the romantic dialogues. But in this case it didnt bother me or really matter because there was so many other things that just made me fall head over heels in love with it. It wasnt JUST a lovestory, it was also a story about growing and learning and changing and finding and losing and seeing and knowing and forgetting and feeling and sensing. About power and weakness, will, strength, want, desire, loss, hope, dreams, attraction, rejection, bewilderment, wonder. And so much more. The themes of reincarnation, soul connections and tasks, Atlantis, choices and conflicts, ego and soul, darkness and light, the after and in-between lives, mental or astral powers, the Earths journey and time now are all themes I find fascinating and interesting and that is very much a part of my own beliefs - so to find them in a book, weaved together like this, was like coming home.
This book is taking place in America/Canada but written in danish and (so far) isn't translated. But I really hope it will be, someday (hopefully soon), so many more people will be able to enjoy it!! I know, Im hooked ;)...more
