Not at all what I expected. I don't know how this even got on my list of books that I wanted, must have been my mistake. I am interested in her books, but not this one. She is an interesting person & I would be more interested in her books about other things than God like.
A very disappointing book. Written in a biographical format to present the tenets of Novus Spiritus, it conveyed an attitude of how exceptional Ms. Browne is in the hierarchy of entities inhabiting the earth. I found it quite egotistical and it disillusioned me as to the quality of the material she presents. This is sad because a large portion of the information she conveys rings quite true. A perfect example of what happens when we get carried away with our own status.
Typical Sylvia Browne...uplifting, eye-opening, soul-comforting, and real. Sylvia writes from the heart in an easy-to-read and understandable manner. She writes as she speaks and makes the reader feel as if she's in the room with you, telling her stories straight to YOU. The information she receives is from various sources from the Other Side, including her spirit guide Francine, our departed loved ones, Mother and Father God, and many other sources. She shares her experiences and answers from the many years and years of readings for others and her in-depth research. And as always, Sylvia tells her readers to do their own research to find the truth, listen to your own heart for the truth, and to "Take what you want [from her books] and leave the rest behind." If you are a constant Sylvia Browne reader, you might find some repetition here and there, but it only helps to answer more questions that have popped up or helps to reaffirm previous information. If you are a new reader, she won't leave you sitting in the dust wondering what in the world is she talking about. Highly recommend, but don't ask for mine, as I'm keeping it!
From back cover:
The hardest thing for you and me to swallow is that we're the ones responsible for our charts, especially if they seem really rotten. We may wonder, Why did I write one thing and want another? Well, some of us recall a past time when we were happier, or we remember the Other Side where things are perfect. This leaks through and makes us homesick.
I really thought tht I just wanted to have chidren, stay home, and have a man take care of me. Things didn't turn out exactly as I planned, but then would I have been really happy? Probably not. Would I have liked to have given my children more time? Yes, but the time I gave them was quality. Did my dream of being taken care of come true? No, I always supported everyone, even my husbands. Yes do I reget that? No. As I look back, I remember what my ex-boyfriend one told me: "The world called." The need to support has also given me the impetus and will to continue.
With much gut-wrenching work, I've make baby steps to find what Sylvia wants. Yes, I have to live by my chart, but I also try to be good to me in the process. I won't say that I've been thrilled with my fate, but I did have choices (not so much externally, but internally), and so do you.
