Mom On A Spiritual Journey

Now Discover Your Strengths | Connectedness as a strength on the spiritual journey

Based on the research work of Donald Clifton who used Gallup surveys to ask millions of people around the world ‘what are your strengths’ (amongst other positively-framed questions), Donald Clifton and Marcus Buckingham wrote this book to start the ‘strengths revolution’. A Strength as defined in Now, Discover Your Strengths is “consistent near-perfect performance in an activity”. The aim here is to find your natural talents or ways that you express yourself in the world that you find the easiest because your brain works that way.

This book is revolutionary.  It’s a very different concept to consider simply building on your Strengths rather than ‘plugging the skills gap’ and shoring up your ‘weaknesses’.

Kundalini Meditation – An Update by Mom On A Spiritual Journey

As I wrote this I figured out I am at day 40 of my kundalini meditation practice, so as a dutiful Mom On A Spiritual Journey I thought it time to report my findings.

Well, one thing is for sure – I shall be carrying on with this practice well after day 40.  This type of meditation for me is one of the most intriguing and experiential practices I have undertaken.

During the first week of meditation, I found myself in the middle of a powerful vision.  It was so strong that I decided to write to the author about my experience.  She very kindly responded.

Kundalini Yoga

A guide to Kundalini Yoga and Kundalini Meditation

Written by Kathyrin McCusker, a Yoga teacher and internationally known Opera Singer Kundalini Meditation is a useful guide to both meditation using the Kundalini energy, and Kundalini Yoga.

Kundalini means “the coil in the hair of the beloved” and refers to our coiled serpent-like energy which begins at the base of the spine, moving up through the chakras or energy centers and resulting in a feeling of bliss throughout the body, mind, and soul for the regular practitioner.

Kundalini Yoga is the practice of yogic postures, mantras and meditations that help activate the kundalini energy.  This energy can rise up through the chakras with practice.

stories from spirit

Sheila Callaham’s Stories from Spirit | A Kindle ebook giveaway and book review by Mom On A Spiritual Journey

Stories from Spirit will help you learn a different route to meditation, using an ancient indigenous spiritual practice called journeying, or Shamanic journeying, which is a form of guided or self-guided meditation using drumming as a background track and a way to switch off the present mind. Sheila Callaham is an independent author, also on her own spiritual journey and has written Stories from Spirit in order to relate her story and enable others to begin or continue with Shamanic journeying.I’ve enjoyed this ebook greatly and believe Stories from Spirit is a great resource for the new Shamanic Guided Journeyer, as well as those more experienced on the journey.


Angels at the Table by Debbie Macomber – great gift for Christmas | Book review by Mom On A Spiritual Journey

I recently read Angels at the Table by Debbie Macomber (thanks again to Andover Library KS for their great new book section!).

It’s a short novel about angelic intervention and free will and is a love story, too.

Whether you believe in Angels at the Table or not – a fun read.

Archangel Gabriel allows angels Shirley, Goodness and Mercy to take an angel-in-training, Will, down to Earth to watch the New Years’ celebrations.

They find themselves in trouble when Will is drawn to stand in the celebrating crowds in Times Square and notices two lonely people, a guy, and a girl.  He gives them a nudge with his wing and they connect and like each other.

So what’s wrong with that?  They were destined to meet, but not that soon – so their relationship becomes blocked by a number of complications.

Stumbling Into Infinity

Stumbling Into Infinity by Michael Fischman | A Book Review by Mom On A Spiritual Journey | An Ordinary Man In The Sphere Of Enlightenment

During the telling of Michael’s Fischman’s tale in Stumbling Into Infinity, he finds himself increasingly involved with Guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s work, or “Guruji” as he calls him.

We all find ourselves sitting at Guruji’s knee and learning from his wisdom – everything from how and where particular emotions are held in the body, through to accounts of people learning the Sudarshan Kriya breathing method to enable them to de-stress and relax in life, simply by breathing.

Ravi Shankar (born 13 May 1956) is an Indian spiritual leader. He is frequently referred to as “Sri Sri” (honorific) or as Guruji or Gurudev.

He founded the Art of Living Foundation in 1981, a volunteer-based NGO providing social support to the people.

In 1997, he established a Geneva-based charity, the International Association for Human Values, an NGO that engages in relief work and rural development and aims to foster shared global values
