Being heHaving spent the last three decades learning from the masters of India, Sondra Ray is a well-respected teacher of the femininity of divinity. Being her eighteenth book, Rock Your World with the Divine Mother is not a how-to manual, but rather the author shows us how to open up to the Divine Mother through her re-telling of various pilgrimages to Peru, Yugoslavia, India and more in her personal search of the Divine Mother. Sondra shows that no matter the religion or race, the Holy Mother’s presence is alive and living within us all and can be found in Quan Yin, Kali-Ma, Amma (the Hugging Saint), Pele, the Virgin Mary, even in Babaji and in nearly every positive, living spiritual path.
The chapter (1, Creating Miracles) featuring her empowering and humbling story of her visit to the Virgin at Medjugorie, Yugoslavia was exceptionally moving to myself. I could literally feel the spirit of the Divine Mother leaking off the pages and filling the room with its ambiance, and I was brought to tears.
Rock Your World with the Divine Mother is broken in three parts; the first focusing on Sondra’s journeys and experiences, the second speaks of the ceremonies and festivals (mainly in India) that celebrate the Divine Feminine, and the final part shows us how we can serve the Divine Mother through our work in serving humanity and through meditation and prayer. The intuitive appendices discuss the relation between our surrendering and womanly “afflictions” like breast cancer and menopause that haunt so many of today‘s women. Through them, the author shows how to reclaim your power. The final chapter is Sondra’s very own personal prayer that she invites the reader to pray along with her. A moving finale to a fantastic tome.
I read this book in one sitting, something I rarely ever do. This insightful manuscript will make anyone, man or woman, want to surrender to the loving energy of the Divine Feminine. Highly recommended!...more
