Book Review

From Volney Steffire friend reader on FB

 

Dr. David Hawkins used to talk about a Level of Consciousness (LOC) scale. The written word could be measured using this scale. The first thing that I noticed about Barbara Anne Rose’s words was that they were vibrating at a very high frequency.

The frequency of written words comes from the frequency of the writer of the words, the intention at the time of the writing and the words themselves.

These words seemed to have been written by a radiant Goddess with a very loving intention. The level of vibration was palpable. One could meditate with these words.

The book has three layers. On one layer it is the author’s personal path of growth and healing. She discovers her voice and then her power. It will be an empowering story for some and a gratifying story for others on those terms. For those details buy the book. That is her story

On another layer the book is about understanding one’s connection with the divine, both the divine within and the divine all around us. The author does a good job of explaining how religious beliefs and direct divine connection can be reconciled as being two aspects of the same thing. In her case her definition of the divine comes her Roman Catholic upbringing but her sense of connection comes from “the Spirit” within her and Spirit as another name for God.

I personally relate to mixing Roman Catholic terms with a non-dualist view of the divine. I first learned healing from an Ex-Roman Catholic Priest (Ron Roth) turned teacher of hands on healer. We referred to the Holy Spirit and asked the Holy Spirit to join with us. Another one of the many semantics for the divine both within us and all around us.

If one is comfortable with the non-dualist view that we can connect with “Spirit” and that we have a piece of Spirit within us and there are “Angels” around us maybe in human form or maybe in the hearts of others then the third layer of the book is very interesting. How do you really know what thoughts, desires or needs come from the physical, selfish self versus what comes from divinity?

On the surface this seems like it would be very easy to tell. Anything bad for someone else for no reason is not divine. How about good for someone else but not for you? There is a range of nuances covered.

Most healers that I know are sometimes double-checking whether what they feel is the right thing to do. Is it from the divine or not? Does this serve the client? But what if it does not serve me? Am I really channeling right now?

Barbara gets into these questions. Although the book is applicable to anyone comfortable with the non-dualist view of the divine, there is also a bit of a healthy, healer, heal thyself aspect. She shares a few of her mistakes as healer that occurred when she got confused as to the source of the insight.

I do have a couple of very loving words for the author. Barbara, I heard your voice. Thank you for sharing your truth, experience and wisdom so fearlessly Goddess.
