It is essentially a call to arms for women to rise up, tell their truth, and lead.
Most women have spent much of their working lives “making it

This is where I gave up entirely:

'The more time you have spent in spirit form, the more difficulty you may find being in a human body. Many of us have incarnated on other planets where third-dimensional laws just don't exist. This is one reason why we may feel heavy,uncomfortable and trapped in our physical bodies, using food and other substances to keep ourselves grounded.'

Incarnated on other planets? Really???

I mean, I actually believe in reincarnation. I like the idea that our souls

Initially I thought this book was going to be a bit light - but the more I read the more I enjoyed it. There's lots of stuff here about embodying what you do - how unless you love what you do you will never be a success, and how if you do love and embody what you do then it will all just come naturally.
Also loved this bit:

This books was beautiful!!!! Very inspiring and uplifting, I couldn't put it down..I red it 2 times this week, just to be sure I didn't miss something important!
This is a book for those who believe in past lives, light work, wiccan believes and so much more.
For some people, this may sound weird, and that's ok....this book is not for everyone!
It's a book that tells us to believe in ourselves (women), a book that shows us how to awaken and rise the goddess within us!!!

I had heard about this book so many times from women I follow on social media and was really eager to read it. I tried to like it - I really did - and I also tried to keep an open mind once I realized that I didn’t like it, but I honestly couldn’t bring myself to finish it despite my dedication to finishing every book I start. This is as touchy-feely-new-age-spiritual as it gets, with the author talking about how a woman’s period is our connection with our ancient lineage and links us with their ...more

Four Point Five Stars

Rise Sister Rise is a non-fiction guide for those ready for change in their life circumstances, whether at a crossroads in life, a desire to stand up and be heard, or a need to follow a dream.

Rebecca Campbell firmly believes we are at a crucial point in our world development, ending thousands of years of oppression and darkness caused by religion and power hungry world leaders. Our planet is dying under current human abuse; people are lost, hurt and angry.

I feel like this book is a work from the heart and comes from the passion of the author. However, I found it difficult to read, as it contained the same rhetoric I've read in so many other Goddess Spirituality books. There were lots of repetitive calls to 'rise' and little discussion on HOW women can truly 'rise' in a tangible way. It just lacked substance and was very simplistic. The foundation was also very much within the dichotomy of masculinity and femininity that is repeated in much of God ...more

Another book of shared thoughts from Rebecca Campbell, just as good as her first book, so full of encouragement, in particular for women to be more open and confident to use their intuitive abilities and to support each other, in ways that were practiced a long time ago.

That what we feel are the remnants of a fear that has been passed down as it was not so long ago that these skills were a danger to women. It is a celebration of who we are and of the feminine energy (within men and women) and i

Hands down the most inspirational book I have ever read!!! I have been looking for this book my whole life, but there is no doubt it came to me now simply because I was ready right now, in this very moment of my life. Thank you Rebecca for Raising the vibration of women all over the world with your powerful words. I recommend this book to every friend, every woman, every sister, every mother, every creator and every soul who seeks to rise higher within herself! Simply Brilliant ✨✨✨
This book is magic. So full of important wisdom that I am blown away. Rebecca Campbell is a game-changer. I read this in more than three months - meaning I read it as properly as I could, and I do not regret one second. This book has given me so many wise words to live by and to guide me through life. Thank you Rebecca Campbell.

Inspiring, empowering and found just when I needed it. This is an exploration - well, a call to arms really! - of spirituality, the sacred feminine, magic, trust and letting go of old stories, patterns and fears so you can rise up and do what you were put in this earth to do. I will be reading this again!

Having recently connected to the rising divine feminine power within and around me, I could relate to Rebecca's story. I feel as if I could have written her words. They spoke to my soul. Learning that she has endometriosis, only made me connect with her deeper.

Rebecca's words are needed and necessary during this time. I feel the rising happening too. It's time to heed the call.

From the first few pages you know this book is going to be something special. I read it, and then re-read it to make sure it really sunk in. Such an empowering read for ALL women! Highly recommend!

Thought provoking and encouraging in this time of uncertainty. As women this is definitely time to use our voices, support our Mother Earth and join together to heal the damage of the patriarchy.

I feel a bit bad giving this just two stars because I’m sure the author meant it to be very heartfelt (and the subject matter IS worthy and important in this day and age!) but ugh.... this book just came off as repetitive, vapid, and very “white feminist spiritualist mish mosh-y”. I couldn’t even finish it. It’s messages are pretty common in goddess spirituality books, many of which present them much better than this one does.

From a person who didn't previously consider themselves spiritual, I have come out the other end of this book feeling seriously enlightened, and questioning a lot about the ways in which I've chosen to live my life. From the perspective of someone who has experienced trauma in their life, I think that this book is exceptionally freeing, thought-provoking and even life-altering; I have thoroughly re-evaluated many aspects of myself and my life as a result of reading this book.

Another incredibly inspiring book by Rebecca Campbell, continuing in the same vein as Light is the New Black.
As soon as I finished it, I turned to the beginning, to work through the questions and exercises, treating it as a workbook - my own personal psychotherapy course! :)

Wow, I didn't expect to adore this so much! I listened to the entire book either while out in nature or drawing and I loved every minute of it. It felt like a 7 hour meditation, let me tell you.

I enjoyed this book. The reasons it took me so long to finish are I took time to complete the exercises, learn mantras/affirmations and tried to incorporate my learning into everyday life which is still a challenge but worth persevering with.
An inspiring self-help book/workbook. Answering the questions did take time, but show me some of my one patterns and blocks. As such, this is not a quick, or light, read. It’s also pretty weird. But so am I! And that, to me, was the big message. Be happy with being weird. Few people go anywhere or feel truly happy by conforming.
Just reading the content pages and I already feel the truth, the power, the need and a deep deep resonance with this book, reverberating through my cells.
Can’t wait to read, to dvelve into its powerful truths, it’s light, guiding me in the dark.

This book turned out to be as powerful for me as initially felt and thought.
I’m very grateful that it found it’s way to me, and for everything it changed and strengthened in me.
May it find it’s way to everyone else who might need it.

Wow, this lady right here is off the hinges! I love her work so hard - been through both of her books this week. I read Light is the New Black in paperback and then listened to this book, Rise Sister Rise, on Audible (she has a great accent and reading voice). I ended up ordering a paperback version of this book too as I found it was hard to get through all of the inquiry prompts while listening, despite my mad scrambling to write everything down. The book is about 7 hours of listening, which I ...more

I used to read a lot of spiritual books, and this year has led me to reconsider my experience of connection, pain and our 'separateness.' After about seven months of being recommended Rebecca's books by multiple people, I gave in. and read the first 3 'parts' in 3 days. Then I took some time to reflect, to pause, and struggled to read a few sections. But I reached the end, and I can certainly say it's been a while since I took so many notes. I took photographs of pages with their number to retur ...more

I really enjoyed Campbell's first book (Light is the New black), it offered good insights on how to begin a spiritual awakening. Rise sister Rise on the other hand seems to include many points already covered in her first book, and repeated many times throughout. Spiritual truths for me personally, do not need this kind of marketing. The many repetitions to fill the word count, added up in the end to be uninspiring and fell flat against my expectations.

I would give this book 3.5 stars if that was an option (why isn't it an option, Goodreads?)
I listened to this as an audio book on my currently very long commute. I liked that she is Australian, that it was personal, poetic and written with a genuine desire to help women develop into their full potential. It might be a style thing, but I also found it wordy, sentimental and repetitious. I often found myself thinking that I would like to cut half of it out, and make it a lot sharper. It was irrita

I'd rather give this book 3.5 stars.

The book contains lots of universal wisdom, IMO. What I found annoying was the writer repeated a lot of her statements throughout the book. I found myself thinking 'yes, yes, we know that, now' every few pages or so. I didn't find her ideas really new or even refreshing, however I found some of the written pieces somewhat insightful.

I finished the book because I continued to think: 'maybe the next part dives a bit deeper into the subject' but then it didn't.

Ive got to say i didnt can nnect with this book. Light is the new black was alot better and i could connect with the information in there. The spiritual side was easy and really helped my life alot. But rise sister rise had practically the same life story of rebecca. But i just couldnt connect with the rest of it.
