I didn't know we HAD book MeMe's until I was "tagged" by my lovely friend, Julie Neerings. We're supposed to limit it to FIVE books? Oh, well, I suppose I've broken a few rules before; why would this be different? Here's my list in no particular order. Each of these (and many more) have touched my life in different ways:
"You Can Heal Your Life" by Louise L. Hay I read this book many years ago and it is still as profound today as it was then.
"The Amazing Power of Deliberate Intent by Living the Art of Allowing" More insights from Esther and Jerry Hicks
"The Sleeping Prophet: Edgar Cayce" by Jess Stern Another terrific old book; I believe I was about 17 when I read this and have been a member of ARE every since.
"Life After Life" by Raymond Moody Finally, some observations into what I believed for many years.
"Conversations with Morrie" by Robert Fulghum For anyone who's read this, I don't have to say another word. If you haven't, I strongly suggest it.
"The Gift of Fear" by Gavin De Becker Reminds you to ALWAYS listen to the voices, feelings, warning and your inner voice.
"The Power of Intention" by Wayne W. Dyer So true!
I saved one for last because I have a story to go with it, one that affected me greatly. The book is: "Crossing Over"by John Edward, a native New Yorker from Long Island. I had been watching Crossing Over since it was on The Sci Fi Channel and later when it went to prime time. This particular self proclaimed Medium facinated me. I read this a few years after the incident.
I was at one of the many schools I attended and was running late getting back to class after lunch. I was running though the front of a car wash and heard my name. I turned around to see who it was but didn't recognize anyone and started to leave. I heard my name again and a woman approached me. "It's me, Carole, Mary." I felt terrible that I didn't know her, she had been my daughter's teacher for two years and her tutor as well and was a driving and wonderful force in her life. Her next sentence said it all "I lost my Andy." Andy was one of her sons and the love of her life. He had been in a horrible accident while driving his bicycle right near his home and was killed.
In the book "Crossing Over" there is an entire chapter devoted to Mary Miracolo and her son Andy. He came through to a woman who had driven past the scene of the accident not long after it happened and came through during her reading....so much was the grief that Mary had over her loss. John Edward traced her to the funeral home and they delivered a message to her. Andy came through in a strong and powerful way for his mother and family during that reading with very specific things for his family. The book also recounts that later, during John's Honeymoon, he came through so strongly again he felt compelled to call Mrs. Miracolo. Apparently at another time she very much needed to hear it. I last saw this wonderful and amazing woman back and doing what she did best, teaching and inspiring. The readings and information that came through gave her much peace and comfort as she has NO DOUBTS that was her Andy. I had my own brief experience with John Edward that left no doubt in my mind there are some people walking among us with very special gifts---and that our loved ones are always around us.
I am going to tag:
