Shelves: intuition
I'm not sure where to begin with why I liked this book so much. It literally walks you through a day in the life of a psychic medium. Rebecca's life is not much different than the regular person. Her days are busy juggling work, kids, husband, social, etc. AND the same ups and downs we all experience. Even with her intuitive abilities emotions sneak up on her too. At times it may cause her to ignore her own gut feelings about life. Still, it is her willingness to learn and heartfelt lessons shar ...more

1. ASK: Humbly ask for and trust in spirits guidance, then experience tremendous clarity and comfort.
- You must first asked for their guidance, and then you must open yourself up to all possibilities. Guidance and signs from beyond show up in many different ways: dreams music sound objects threads of conversation and even inspired thoughts.
- The departed and guides will not intervene in your life until you ask them to, so set aside time each day to meet them halfway by setting attenti

Leaves you wanting answers

The author gave numerous situations when her guides led her to give specific details about an upcoming event such as” you are going to a baby in the future” but never tells the reader if that prediction came true.
There were so many times that amazing, out of the blue: predictions or “facts” previously unknown to the client but she never gave any follow up. There is no way to know if those fantastical events actually unfolded or not. That’s a key part of this book that

I found that it was helpful to read about how to apply to daily life. Setting the intention for my day by asking guidance from God, spirit guides and passed love ones makes sense as a way to stay connected . Switches focus from trying to control events to instead being open to the opportunities put in front of you.

I've read a lot of books by psychic-mediums, but what I really like and appreciate about Rebecca Rosen is her honesty and humanity. When reading the book, I felt I was in the company of a good friend.

This was the perfect book to help me deal with so many issues, especially the death of my son. I am grateful to have read it.

I could relate to every page of this book. It was wonderful and I enjoyed it immensely. I am looking forward to reading her other books.

The book is written as sort of a "day in the life of" format. However, you'll be better served by seeing that as just the framework and concentrating on the lessons that serve as the chapters' focus. ...more

I liked the stories about specific clients and how she related that back to life lessons. Also cool to hear a little about Rebecca’s life. She is an amazing medium. I have been to several of her big group readings, but the book was a little repetitive from some of her other books.

An uplifting book about medium Rebecca Rosen and a day in her life. She shares practical ways to be more mindful and to connect with spirit in our day to days lives. What I liked most about this book was how sections were laid out and the positive voice throughout.
Two friends have attended RR’s public readings and were blown away, so I thought I’d give
one of her books a spin. Interesting info about some of her readings and her own “signs” but more of a “how to attune yourself to the spirit world around you”/self-help book, not topics I’m interested in.

Awesome Lessons

I read and reread it to maintain the right perspective in life.

Thank you for sharing your lessons with us!

Tori Amos said something in some interview about crystal suppositories, and that (at least the vague iteration I've retained) was firmly lodged in my brain as I read this. It's not that I don't believe the author—she seems absolutely sincere. But the plane of existence she's inhabiting is so markedly different/removed from my own that I just can't relate. That, and there are so many metaphysical truisms spouted here that a person could poke about five hundred holes in while barely even trying. T ...more
