Mindfulness, meditation, spirituality… all came very late in my life. Here are a few recent reads…
How Good Are You Willing To Let It Get?
If I had heard of this book several years ago, I probably would have rolled my eyes. Since a life event shifted my perspective to a more spiritual one, I have become much more open to different beliefs and possibilities, so I was intrigued by the description.
The book is made up of daily doses of wisdom from the author’s spirit animal, or ‘core beastie,’ Alice The Elephant. Each one is followed by an anecdote from where the author has applied it and what she learned. A question is posed for the reader to consider before a brief prayer ends the passage for the day.
I had no knowledge of shamanic journeys or spirit animals before this book crossed my path but I was curious about what it all meant. Although I read the whole book and noted the passages which felt particularly meaningful for my life at the time, I’ve since started a practise of reading a passage most mornings before I start my day. At the very least, the encouragement to meditate is surely a good way to set out your intentions.
Try this if you’re interested in exploring something new or expanding your spiritual understanding, guided by the friendly voices of Alice and Sarah.
