NAB Review of Meet Me In Atlantis

NAB Review of Meet Me In Atlantis

By Megan Sebastian

 

4 Stars

 

“An Atlantean Utopia”

 

Told in the first person, a doctor begins writing in a journal for her own sanity after a magnetic pole reversal. She survived by hunkering under an antique French farmhouse table, but she is separated from her husband and twin children, who are at their cabin in South Park, Colorado. The end of the world as we know it has happened.

Faced with the burden of being alone, she must brave the apocalyptic environment to try and get to her family. She isn’t alone long, when she finds a make shift camp in a park. There she meets Isolde, with whom she has a strange palpable connection. Isolde is waiting to meet up with her twin brother Ian. Together they band with a few other interesting characters and begin to transform the make shift camp into more of a community.

After learning of geographical catastrophes as well as political and military discourse, the doctor and her new kindred group set out on their mystical adventure. There is a heightened sense of an ethereal energy that is affecting everyone. Psychic ESP is heightened and much more. There is a new continent that has emerged during the pole shift and that continent is Atlantis.

 

As a shaman, I love working with ethereal energy and crystals. I have always been fascinated by stories of Atlantis and all the mystery surrounding it. This story encompasses all the mysteries of ethereal energy that I find to be universal truths and that is what I loved about it. The encompassing way ethereal energy is portrayed in this book is magical and well done. The story does have some political and social outcomes as well as some personal conflicts that some readers may find challenging. I enjoyed this book and was left wanting more at its end. Maybe that is coming in a sequel.

NAB Review of Dancing at Angel Abbey


NAB Review of Dancing at Angel Abbey
By Lauren M. Bloom

5 Stars … Our first review of a fiction book and what a delight it was.

“Angelic Delight”

Kate Cunningham is a partner with a Manhattan law firm whose life becomes chaotic when she finds a note that reads, “Your father is dying. Come home at once.” Accompanied by her faithful Siamese cat, Honore’, Kate is propelled into a journey of synchronistic and mystical experiences that will have a transformational effect on her life.

Kate’s trip to see her father takes her to her childhood home in Angel Falls. There she is reconnected and welcomed home by Andrew and Bella who help care for her father’s house and estate. Andrew and Bella are a very sweet and caring couple who have known Kate since she was a little girl and they care for her deeply.
Upon returning to her childhood home, her life begins to unravel. As if dealing with a dying father isn’t enough, she receives a phone call from her law firm’s managing partner, Mr. Blackwell. After receiving career threatening news from him, it gets much worse for Kate. She soon receives a letter from her father’s attorney. The contents of the letter are even more devastating to Kate.

With the help of Bella and Andrew, Kate is introduced to the eccentric Lucina des Anges. Lucina is known as “The Lady of Angel Abbey.” The Abbey is a magical place where many people seem to find whatever they need most. Bewildered by the Abbey and inspired by the people she meets there, Kate remains untrusting of Lucina.

What Kate doesn’t know is the Archangel Gabriel is guiding her toward her destiny and he isn’t the only one. All the Archangels are sharing their wisdom, tough love, and blessings with Kate and the reader. With the help of the Archangels and the magic of Angel Abbey, Kate is on a collision course with her destiny. This is where the magic of her true self-discovery begins to occur.

As a shaman who believes in a spirit world and one who knows the help we receive from kindred spirits, it was very enjoyable to read the lessons and wisdom imparted from the Archangels. Ironically, it was also difficult for me since I don’t embrace Christianity as my religion. However, having a belief in Christianity or angels is irrelevant to one’s enjoyment of this book. What matters most is this book is inspiring and leaves the reader with reminders of universal truths regarding life, death, love, kindness, forgiveness, and more. A fictional book isn’t usually my first choice for reading, but this book was an exceptional treat. I absolutely loved the book and its characters, whom I missed after I had finished reading it. It would make an excellent movie script and builds to a climax that would make Hollywood proud.

Winner for New Age Fiction – 2016 International Book Awards.

NAB Review of Joyful Now: Heal Yourself Heal the World

NAB Review of Joyful Now: Heal Yourself Heal the World

by T. M. Marshall

5 Stars

“Essence of Joy”

The author, T.M. Marshall, explains that joy is the underlying essence of goodwill, true happiness, and the truest expression of unconditional love. According to the author, the cause of all human suffering lies in our perception filters and happiness is a state of mind and joy is a state of being. Perception is key to our state of well-being and to truly awaken is to live in the here and now.

The purpose of this book is twofold. The primary objective is to reignite our natural state of joy through mindful practices. The second objective is to assist the world in finding greater balance. By expanding on many theories and well-known practices, such as manifesting desires, self-love, positive affirmations, shadow play, anchoring, and much more, T. M. Marshall helps the reader bring the essence of joy into his or her life.

I can truly embrace and attest to the practices that are presented in this enlightening and joyful book. As a shaman, I truly enjoyed the section on shadow play and facing and recognizing fears within our subconscious minds. I firmly believe this is where so much of the awakening and joyful magic happens. I also love how the author gives the reader simple practices throughout the book to achieve results and awaken the essence of joy within. The Spirit walk exercise is one of my favorites as well!

I highly recommend this book to everyone. Even if you are the happiest person on earth, this book contains enough wisdom and practices to maintain that lasting joy and to help those you love and to respect those you don’t. If you find joy lacking in your life, this book is the perfect guide to achieving the essence of joy and living a passion filled life.

NAB Review of The Great Mother Bible: or I’d rather be gardening

NAB Review of The Great Mother Bible: or I’d rather be gardening….

by Mare Cromwell

5 Stars

 

“A Mother’s Love”

Having studied for around 14 years with a Cherokee teacher and then many Native American medicine people as well as being an ardent environmentalist and a professional gardener, Mare has a gift to channel and communicate with Great Mother and is called on to share this wisdom in the Great Mother Bible. Mare explains that Great Mother is the Sacred Feminine aspect of the Divine Creator and that Earth Mother is also an embodiment of the Sacred Feminine here on Earth as our planetary caretaker and is a distinctly different spiritual consciousness. Great Mother and Earth Mother explain both have been ignored far too long and now is the time for balance and harmony. After being diagnosed with lymphoma in 2012, Mare had been on a journey to heal herself through alternative medicine. “Surrender, listen, and show up”, had become her credo with Earth Mother being her guide. Mare refers to her as Mother.

Mother asks Mare to write the Great Mother Bible because she says it is time to have another book that offers spiritual wisdom and guidance from a more maternal lens on spirituality. Mother explains that society and religions all over the world have been influenced and dominated by the patriarchal energies that stem from alien beings that visited Earth long ago.  This has created a great need for balance and healing with Great Mother that everyone should recognize and embrace. Mother also shares her wisdom about the Christ Consciousness and how much love exists within this realm of spiritual energy for all of us to tap into. Another main tenet that Great Mother conveys, is that she is also the embodiment of Earth and nature. Therefore, by loving and respecting the earth and all of nature, we are strengthening our spiritual bond and love with her. Great healing can be achieved on all levels for ourselves and for Earth Mother in this way.

I love the wisdom and the message of love within this book! That being said, I also know that some people will find some aspects of it challenging to accept and resonate with while others will find the calm and love that their spirit is longing for. Either way, I know that Great Mother and Earth Mother are very loving and powerful and they have been neglected from modern society and we should all incorporate them back into our daily lives and worship. The Great Mother Bible is the perfect book to awaken and remind us all of how to do just that.

NAB Review of Dirt, TRUTH, Music and Bungee Cords: Conversations with the Souls who guide my life

NAB Review of Dirt, TRUTH, Music and Bungee Cords: Conversations with the Souls who guide my life

by Bud Megargee

5 Stars

“Awakening Transformational Faith”

Having a career in the mental health healing profession, Bud had always considered himself to be conservative, excessively controlling, and very analytical in his thinking. On the night before his divorce proceeding, he sees a strange image that appears to be a window. In his mind he hears the name Elias.  Intrigued by the experience and with a growing discontent of the mental health profession, Bud begins on a spiritual journey that takes place over a six year period.

After meeting with a gifted oracle named Shirlet, Bud begins to communicate with soul guides.  Bud shares the direct and truthful dialogues he has with his two soul guides named Laz and Ucerous, providing insight, spiritual lessons, and explanations of spiritual truths. Laz and Ucerous explain many topics to help guide Bud through his own spiritual and personal introspection.  Through this introspection and spiritual guidance, a spiritual transformation and understanding of spiritual truths are realized.

Even though Bud is the one who is receiving guidance and doing his own self introspection, the honest and personal lessons he learns can be applied to everyone. Reading this book, I was constantly reminded of my own spiritual transformation and the lessons I had learned along the way from my own spirit guides.  It touched a special place within me page by page.  As a shaman, I know we are guided by spirit and that communication with our spirit guides is there for all of us to develop and learn from. I also know the hard lessons of a spiritual nature that we all are confronted with. This book is well written and the spiritual truths and insights make this a must read.

Review of Opening The Heart: Meditations on How to Be

This is an Editor’s Choice Review of Opening The Heart: Meditations on How to Be and was not paid for.

“Simple Complexity”

opening heart

I love how the book takes the process of meditation and incorporates 56 images of nature and flowers and simple messages to help you meditate and find the balance within. Each image is associated with a simple message, but the message has a deeper meaning and complexity from which to meditate on to balance the mind and heart. Mind, body, and soul are truly connected and it is through meditation that we can find balance in our lives as well as our place within the universe. The many exercises in the book are wonderful for beginners and experts alike. The meditation exercises can be as simple or complex as you want to make them, but the author gives you plenty of detailed exercises that will help you find balance and attune with the universe. The simple complexity of this book makes it easy for me to recommend as a great resource on meditation and guide to finding universal balance and growth within one’s self.
