Book #21: 50 Book Challenge

After an admittedly life-changing reading from a spiritual counselor where I was introduced to my two guardian angels, the eternal scholar in me immediately bee lined to a nearby book store to research angels and angel therapy. It was there, while sitting cross legged on the floor with the New Age section looming over me, that I discovered Book #21.

How to Hear Your Angels by Doreen Virtue is a mini-book devoted to the basic “how to’s” of connecting with guardian angels. I will be the first to confess that this is not the type of book I would normally be drawn to, let alone read. However, after being opened minded enough to speak to a spiritual counselor and receiving information that she had no way of knowing, my rational brain backed down enough to give the non-logical side some freedom.

What I particularly appreciated as I stepped into new, non-scientifically documented territory, is that the author is a trained psychotherapist. She draws on both her professional education as well as her unique ability to see and communicate with guardian angels. After reading this short manual of how to interpret the messages we receive from our guardian angels, I feel I am a bit more open to the fact that there may be some truth to their existence.

While I have never been a very religious person and always stood on the sometimes unnerving ground of personal faith, I can’t help but shake the fact that there may be something to all the super natural, paranormal experiences out there. While my initial thoughts have almost always gone the route of explanation and resolution, I now find myself not being able to say that guardian angels do not, in fact, exist.

For me, the lingering question, a white elephant of belief, still remains: “What if it IS true?”

Next up on the book shelf: The First Phone Call from Heaven by Mitch Albom

Happy Reading!
