I read this book years ago after experiencing a deep awakening in my life. It began a journey of inner transformation that would leave me changed forever. A great read for the open minded.

This channeled book is one of the most simple, loving, and progressive books I have ever read. The affirmations on each page are great for just opening the book and seeing what is drawn to you. Anyone wishing to experience their higher self, or learn how to work with light and energy to create their reality will benefit greatly from this book. Reading it is like being held in a warm embrace from the depth of your spirit. Enjoy!

I agree with the reviewer who described this book as "very woo woo but very good". Initially skeptical because of early chapters encouraging "energy work" and "sending light" with little focus on taking physical action to elicit change, the book redeemed itself with its later chapters on Non-Attachment, Will, and Transparency. If you're in the early stages of spiritual growth and can get past the "woo woo", I think you'll find it a useful read. I look forward to reading more from this series.

I thought this was a wonderful book for someone looking to become more spiritual and lead a joyful existence. I have been wanting to explore spirituality more lately but have yet to stick with any of the books I picked up on the subject matter. This book was written in a clear, gentle, straightforward way and was easy to stick with. I read a chapter or two before bed and it would calm me and usually I found parts of it that resonated well with what I was feeling or what I went through that day. ...more

If any book has served in my life as a personal "bible", this book has. I read it twenty years ago and find myself turning to it time and again when I need an uplift in perspective.

According to this book I am a guide for those close to me to reach higher levels of consciousness. Therefore Jamie, Elton, Arun, Lakhan and Evelina please all follow me your humble leader to the path of enlightenment and the end of suffering gn.

But on a serious note this book isn’t really what I was expecting. I thought it would be about 6th dimensional humans perhaps and eternal consciousness/enlightenment. Sadly it wasn’t. The stories within were a tad dramatic too. But don’t get me wrong

has been a great tool for my spiritual journey. has a lot of good insight & clarity for the path i am on. may be different for others, but if you are on path to grow spiritually and want to learn some meditations, this is a good book for it.

“The earth plane is a beautiful place; you can experience heaven on earth as you become a master of living in higher consciousness.”

One of the better spiritual books I’ve read. Some chapters were really great and some less, but overall a self-strengthening book that I’ll keep some nice quotes from.

I don't believe in about half of it, but it does have some good advice on how to treat others and better yourself.

I love the way books choose me…

That’s exactly how I felt while reading Spiritual Growth. I’ve had this copy since 2011 and only now chose to read it, perhaps more fitting is that it chose to be read. How apropos, even as time is an illusion. I very much enjoyed the gentle guidance and reminders, a pointing to all being well and as it should be, yet across a psycho-spiritual spectrum. I suppose this review is less about the book and more so about the feeling with which it left me. I’ll say this.

I found this book to be absolutely amazing and way ahead of this time. This book was written in 1989 predicting the planetary evolution and the age of enlightenment which is happening right now in 2014. I really felt like I chose the perfect time to read this book. I was reading a book about courage and had this book with me for a while which I borrowed from my Grannie but when I was reading a book about courage and seeing 1111 a lot my intuition said it was important to read this book at that ...more

I received this book as a gift over 20 years ago and have only just now read it for the first time. Perhaps I was not ready for it before; certainly those two decades of life experience have given me a different outlook. In any case, I liked it - the text advocates positive thinking without coming across as clichéd and sentimental, guides the reader to look inside themselves for advice, and says to use your mind to keep yourself grounded when the people around you are in emotional turmoil - all ...more

Choosing Your Reality:

“Instead or picturing things growing worse, picture things growing better. If you catch yourself worrying about the environment, weather, earth changes, or larger-scale events, imagine things turning out wonderfully. Think of the earth as becoming more beautiful and believe that it is possible to live in a place with clean air and a healthy environment, and you will create it as true in your reality. You will be creating a positive vision that becomes telepathically

This is one of those books that I have purposely taken the time to read slowly. It is extremely insightful into so many facets of our human lives and why we feel pain, depressed, unloved, uncared for. For those amongst readers who do not wish to act upon the wisdom provided in this book, I strongly recommend that you don't bother to even open it and read something else. This is definitely a book that I will read again, and possibly again after that because it offers so much for us to nourish our ...more

I enjoyed this book especially after I thought I was going to get bogged down in the subject matter and my, writing style. What I got instead were many tidbits of information that gave me pause and much more to think about.
After reading a large portion of it I felt peaceful and relaxed and my house felt amazing. Coincidence or something telling my something. I won't remember all of the information but I will definitely be putting many of the concepts to use.

It's a better book than most other spiritual books I've read. After each chapter, there is a meditation guide to help you with what you've just learned. Honestly I didn't do but two or three in the book because it was hard to memorize while trying to do it and having to keep picking the book back up. However it was a good read, made me think and see how I react to toxic people differently.
