It is comforting to sit down and read and revise those thoughts and guidelines that help to bring peace and balance to our lives. The renewal of spiritual energy and awareness of inner thoughts and intuitions is welcome. The book begins with the renewal of spiritual awareness that we need to be able to step through life calmly. It suggests ways we can quietly tune in to our inner goddess and listen to what she says.

The author suggests that we honour our intuition, and gives ideas to develop skills to do this. We need to embrace our emotions and search out the inner demons we all have. Refusing to listen to these, and identifying what they are saying, is a skill that needs much practise. So many messages we received when growing up are not helpful, but have become a part of our implanted wisdom. These demons can pop up in the best and worst times. They need to be silenced before we move on.

There is a chapter on “Power leaks and potholes” which discusses inner beliefs we have had since childhood. So many of these misconceptions lead our thinking, and guide us on an illogical path because we don’t question them. Being able to identify them, and discuss them (alone or with a friend) brings a true sense of clarity and understanding to our thoughts, and actions. Feelings of confidence and contentment can arise once we understand and deal with this.

Some of the other chapters in the book look at “Toxic relationships”, “Me, myself and I” and  “It’s not all about you (but it is)”.  I enjoy the fact that there is not just information, but guidelines and exercises to help you along the way. These help with relationships we have between people we love and those we dislike. The chapters also discuss how we should care for our physical body in all ways, and explain how we need a place in our home where we can go to feel safe and relaxed.

This book would make a great gift for a friend who is struggling with day to day issues; it may help her journey to be calmer. To change our thinking and concepts takes a great effort, but with this book as a gentle and humorous support, we could all benefit. It is a luxury in this time to find a book that demands a quiet place to sit down and also offers such gifts of reflection.
