Join the author as she journeys to the jungles of South America on four successive trips to partake of mind-altering ayahuasca in her search for spiritual meaning. She describes each step of her awakening from a self-centered, finger-pointing woman through her material purging and exploration of other realms to an awakened being able to follow her intuitive guide wherever it might lead her.
Like any other metaphysical book, this reminded me a lot of The Celestine Prophecy. However, I’m pretty sure that was fiction. This book reads like fiction – in that it’s very well written – but it’s most definitely a metaphysical memoir. I found it intriguing, although some of the topics covered (such as the matrix-like web that encompasses humanity) were above the level where I could easily wrap my mind around them.
The author honestly presents her experiences over the span of four years, from business failures and successes, through relationship ups and downs, and ending during the pandemic that changed life for the entire world (at least temporarily). She covers her experiences with the shift from a materialistic to spiritual perspective, conversations with her spirit guide on the nature of alternative dimensions and realms, and having a front row seat in what I believe was one of her previous incarnations.
I loved how the first few trips were summarized for a novice traveler so much that as the book was nearing the end, I started asking myself what happened to her? I shouldn’t have worried; the author brought her back with an update. I also loved the synchronicities for the author when she followed her inner voice to travel to India. I think that’s an important lesson, whether you’ve been in direct contact with your guides or not. Always trust your inner voice! Lastly, the automatic writing struck a chord. While I’ve never been able to drop into an altered state quite as easily as described here, automatic writing (especially on a laptop) really does open a great channel and I wish more people tried it. Just be sure you know who you’re talking to (which is a story for another time and not in the realm of this review.)
Interesting, intriguing, thought-provoking, and an overall enjoyable read.
