Skeptics welcomed.

Everyday I look through the free Kindle books in the "Memoirs" section. Normally, I pass on anything that involves the paranormal and I don't know why I bought this one. I've never had a "reading" of any kind and never felt any need to try to contact my dead loved ones or to seek guidance from other-worldly beings.

That said, I see no reason to condemn those who do. I don't go to church, either, but I'm not contemptuous of church goers. Whatever floats your boat is as close to a

Early on in this memoir, Erin describes a shift in her focus with something that happened at her work site. " I walked up a long aisle, like I"d done a million times before, but this time was different. I heard a quiet voice say " You don't belong here anymore."

I walked that same aisle a million times too and while my inner voice reminded me I didn't belong there either it was always my voice I heard. And full disclosure, Erin and I worked together for almost a decade and prior to reading her

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author speaks candidly about the events that led up to her reading tarot cards. It was very interesting because she does not claim to have been born with any gifts for seeing things; rather, she worked to fine tune her intuition. I like the idea that we are all born with some intuition. She also shares stories about readings she’s done (I love those stories) and how she connected with the people in those stories. Through her own life experiences, she was even ...more

Wonderful and enlightening read

Knowing the writer from our childhood I am amazed at all she has overcome to become the person she is today. I was inspired by her journey and it makes me feel like I need to strive to become a happier person. The tools she has used may not work for all but it is a starting point. I would recommend this book for all to read. Inspiring

I loved this book. Erin wove her past experiences together with her journey in the metaphysical. Her journey reminds me that life is full of magic and hope and nothing is a coincidence.
