  • What Can a Good Book Do for You?

    Donna DeNomme BlueWhat Can a Good Book Do for You?

    Has there been a book that has touched you deeply? Moved you? Made you laugh, made you cry . . .  changed your life in some way? I call it exquisite writing—the ability to capture a reader’s heart and soul. Some writers are masters at it!

    In The Red Tent, Anita Daimant does it in the first five lines: “We have been lost to each other for so long. My name means nothing to you. My memory is dust. This is not your fault, or mine. The chain connecting mother to daughter was broken and the word passed to the keeping of the men, who had no way of knowing . . . .” When I read those words standing in the middle of a bookstore, I literally could not put the book down. I was compelled to draw the pages together, gently closing that precious copy; knowing it would not leave my hands until I had finished reading every last page! Local Colorado author, Polly Letofski, masterfully connects with her reader in the prologue of 3MPH: The Adventures of One Woman’s Walk around the World by sharing a delightfully hysterical rendition of a blasting hot day walking near Kondhali, India when she was caught in a bizarre how-could-this-possibly-happen experience. Just reading that one (of many) stories is worth the price of her book!

    But it isn’t just about exquisite writing: meaningful content can grab us, too. We find that “perfect” book—the one that practically jumps off the shelf—asking to come home. Or perhaps it is a title lovingly recommended by a friend. Afformations and E squared are hot items at For Heaven’s Sake right now, because owner Dianne Fresquez believes they are transformation catalysts.

    As a seasoned author, the most meaningful remarks I hear are those a reader shares about how one of my books has made a difference in her life. I remember doing a book signing at Whole Foods years ago, and observing a woman moving toward me as if on a mission, walking with strong, purposeful steps. She stood a little too close and blurted out, “Are you the one who wrote that book?” She was referring to my first book, Turtle Wisdom: Coming Home to Yourself. When I confirmed, that yes, I was the author, she went on to tell me a tearfully moving story. Without her knowledge, this woman’s sixteen-year-old daughter had been seriously contemplating suicide. Evidently her daughter’s good friend loaned her a copy of Turtle Wisdom and she later told her mother that it was because of reading my book that she decided not to take her own life. In that moment, if no one else ever read that book, my purpose would have been fulfilled. One pebble dropped in the proverbial pond ripples out with an impact that goes way beyond what we can individually see.

    And a good book, recommended to a colleague or friend, may help to shift his or her perspective, or encourage them in some pivotal way. Finding Traction by Sherry Ray is a good one for someone frustrated, challenged, or stuck at work; You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay is a helpful reference for looking at what contributes to physical health challenges, and Steven Farmer’s Animal Spirit Guides is an engaging way to consider the meaning of signs and symbols found in the animal kingdom. Classics like Abraham Hicks Ask and It is Given never grow old!

    The possibilities are endless. Books are an abundant resource of information, encouragement, and wisdom. And a beloved book is a true gift whose impact lives on long after it has been shared.

    You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page

    and feel a little as if you have lost a friend.

  • Full Moon in Sagittarius, Sun in Gemini. Mercury and Neptune retrograde. 12th & 13th June 2014

    MoonwaterSYNOPSIS. Full Moon in Sagittarius, Sun in Gemini. Mercury and Neptune retrograde. 12th & 13th June 2014.

    This is an extremely positive and optimistic Full Moon ~ packed with Gemini curiosity and Sagittarius vision and clear perspective.

    The SAGITTARIUS  archer is focused and aims clear and true using the brain/mind to zero in onto what is truth and real. The GEMINI twins give us a wider perspective of possibilities and potential, helps us to see all the options available, ~ they also stimulate our ability to see any `second chances` we feel we may have missed out on. This is extremely empowering for new ideas and insights that may be out on the horizon. BIG ideas and surprise developments could easily present themselves.

    This moon asks us to clear out and illusions we are hanging onto and create a new and clearer vision. Look for new opportunities you perhaps had not even thought of. Really begin to see how your life `could ` be, and not just how it is now. Allow your-self to dream, and dream BIG. Practice creative integration of Heart and Mind and allow your heart to lead your head for a while, and when you feel that `body excitement`~ you know you are on the right track. This is ALL about the bigger picture, and the higher outcome. View your past, present, and future as from above ~ from this perspective you can see more clearly how things interconnect and how different circumstances and scenarios unfolded. You can see and envisage how you would like your future to unfold in a positive and empowering way. Re-visit any perceived `lost opportunities `as you could quite easily now reactivate them to your advantage.

    Mercury and Neptune are currently retrograde, so again this allows us to look back at `what was`, in order to get clearer on how we want things `to be` going forward. See what from your past `worked` and was exciting and what uplifted you in your history and past, and also what did not work for you? ~  and use these insights to set focused intentions for your new future. See if you are allowing old `wounds` to hold you back ? Find a way to forgive and heal any issues as these only serve to limit our lives and potential.

     

    Blessings, Anne
