NAB Review of Ruby Heart of the Dragon – Sun Signs for Our Times

NAB Review of The Ruby Heart of the Dragon: Sun Signs for Our Times

By Mark Borax

5 Stars

“Spiritual Essence of the Zodiac”

    I must admit the title had my attention and intrigue from the very beginning of my mystical journey into this beautifully written book full of meticulous knowledge of astrology, the zodiac, and the human spirit. In the author’s words, “The zodiac is a creation story that proposes twelve variations on the theme of being human, twelve quests for individuation, twelve life arts, twelve invitations to awaken.”

    The book begins with an explanation of what it means when someone asks you what your astrology sign is. Simply put, it is the sign that the sun was passing through when you were born. According to the author, you have two other crucial signs. There is the one you are leaving behind and the one you are heading toward.

Mark tells us, ”Arabian astrologers lent provocative names to the north and south nodes of the Moon, the karmic points where the Moon’s orbit crosses the path of the sun. They called your south node, which contains issues left over from your past and from your past lives, the dragon’s tail, and the opposite point of the north node they called the dragon’s head, which indicates the true north of your life, the destiny your soul came back to create.”

A paragraph later he writes, “I see your astrological Sun as a ruby heart which stimulates the warm emanation of your innermost being and empowers you to shine your creative purpose into the world.”

According to him, the way to use this book is in understanding your Dragontail, Sun sign and Dragonhead. These represent your past, present and future. The book has a very easy to understand chart at the back of the book to look up your own personal dragontail and dragonhead according to your birth date.

In his words, “The more you resolve unfinished business at the tail end, the more your ruby heart flashes a laser beam into the territory ahead. The more progress you make going forward, the less binding is the heavy tail of the past.”

The true beauty of the book is in the meticulous and thoughtful writing and explanation of each astrological sign. The author has a lovely writing style that captures and creates the pure beauty and vivid imagery of each sign along with the challenges that may be presented. His own personal stories are perfectly intertwined along with some poetic prose and so much more.

    My spiritual path becoming a shaman was paved with metaphysical studies in every field imaginable. Astrology was one that I had not invested much into because it was always going to be one of my last to master if you will. I now know that I was waiting on the author, Mark Borax to write this incredible book! Timing is everything. This book was to be my introduction to the true spiritual essence of the zodiac and my go-to reference for astrology and sun signs. When spirit resonates, I feel it and I know it! This book resonates with the spiritual essence of the zodiac and will awaken your dragon within!

Nab review of John & George in spirit: Harmonics of the heart

NAB Review of John & George in Spirit: Harmonics of the Heart

By Susan Jean Courtney

5 Stars

“Vibrational Resonance of Love”

This book is written from the perspective of the author’s channeling sessions with John Lennon and George Harrison. She writes that John Lennon and George Harrison made themselves known to her in 2006 and they began to have occasional conversations. In 2020 they asked her if she would publish a volume with them. From over 90 of these recorded sessions, John and George express their deepest feelings about their childhoods, Beatles’ lives and loves.   

They talk of centuries of planning and multiple lifetimes that the four Beatles spent planning their purpose of spreading love and peace. John and George have now expanded their mission across Earth and out into the universe. They have now formed a massive group of people and beings, living and discarnate, that they call the Universal Soul Band. The good news is that anyone who is willing to listen through his or her heart and participate in the projection of the music of reconciliation and higher love across space and time can join the band.  

Where it gets truly interesting is in the 60 plus practices and meditations that they provide to help along the way. These are designed to help you to listen to them, to the heartbeat of humanity, and to Earth’s reverberations. The goal is to bring humanity into higher resonance and to bring Earth into cosmic consciousness. They tell us that we are all musicians in a sense that we all send out sound vibrations depending on our moods and emotions. They hammer home that all matter is made up of sound vibrations. They also tell us each soul lives in a vibrationally entangled clan of souls. Each soul finds its self-expression by modifying its chosen keynote to create harmonic resonance with other souls on a level of consciousness in different ways. The purpose of this book is to open your ears to the sounds of human life, which can be grounded through your self-knowledge of feelings and emotions. In doing so you can become aware of the higher vibrations of love, care, and concern, and especially hope.

I must confess that I never really considered myself a fan of the Beatles. It wasn’t until I read this book that I forced myself to listen to the entire Beatles catalogue to see what I was missing. I can honestly say I have a newly found appreciation for them now. As a practicing shaman, I use music to enhance my mood and meditations all the time. That concept is not new to me. I know how important music is for me and how it effects the mind and body. I love how this book incorporates and explains in detail the inner workings of sound vibrations on our daily lives and others. I can honestly say it gave me a perspective that I had not spent a lot of time focusing on before. This book is one you can go back to many times over for reference and practice meditations. If you are a fan of the Beatles, you are in for a treat. If you are like I once was, you might just find a new appreciation.

NAB Review of The Art of Sparkling By Becky Brittain, PH.D

5 Stars

“Spirit Fingers”

The book begins by the author sharing with the reader, “MY SUPERPOWER IS SPARKLING!” According to the author, Sparkling is a transmission of energies visualized as sparkling light. She sends out this energy of light through her fingers to intentionally enliven people, nature, and animals. According to her, every one of us has a “bare-naked radiance” that can be infused with more light. We too can become sparklers.

She writes, “It’s a natural expression of light given with pure love and dedication. We embody light and are continuously surrounded by fields of light that provide life-sustaining energies.” She tells the reader that the main purpose of sparkling is to send out your inner light to yourself and others whenever the heartfelt need is there to do so. The great news is we live in a quantum world so sparkling also works long distance too!

With the sun being the source of all light on earth, she writes,” Sparkling is an energetic tool that mirrors the first act of God, who chose the medium of light for creation.” She explains that everything in the universe is light and energy, whose sparks and impulses nourish our brain, draw subtle energy into our chakras and bodies, and allow us to see.

Don’t worry about the details of who, what, when, where, or how to sparkle. She provides exercises and tools for you to follow so that you too can learn the art of sparkling! I love how fun and creative the author is in sharing her gift with the reader in this book. She shares her own personal journey and lessons learned from many of her own teachers which I found to be very inspiring and interesting. The section about her work with Dr. Valerie Hunt, who was professor emeritus of physiological sciences at UCLA was fascinating. Hunt’s work focusing on studying the aura and biofields around the physical body is captivating.

Even though I am a practicing shaman, I must admit that reading or seeing the colors in auras has never been one of my strongest skills. However, I can see energy fields and sense and feel shifts in the flow and transference of energy with ease. That is why I love the author’s presentation of sparkling! It is a vibrant take and explanation of energy transference of love and light, making this book a must-read. I know I am ready to let my sparks flow!

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.
