This book brings the transcendent wisdom of the channeled entity Michael to the all-important subject of love. People everywhere are looking for a higher perspective on love than the popular view of romance. Loving from Your Soul: Creating Powerful Relationships, an inspiring and unusual book by Shepherd Hoodwin, goes to the core of the issue by exploring the nature of love itself. It is a collection of discourses and counseling Hoodwin channeled from the Michael entity that views love as an eternal reality not dependent on other people or situations--it is something we can learn to access all the time through connecting directly with our soul.
Michael is well-known to readers of metaphysical books. There are some dozen Michael books in print, from the work of various channels, and most of them deal with a technical body of information called the Michael teachings. However, Loving from Your Soul is not a technical book. It deals with topics such as sexuality, anger, body image, loneliness, boundaries, listening, friendship, finding a mate, and alternative lifestyles. These subjects are framed within a larger context of explorations such as "Loving Yourself," "Being at Your Source," "Different Ways of Loving," "Oneness," "Communicating Your Whole Being," and "Expanding Love."
According to Loving from Your Soul, "Love is a unified experience that does not cut off any portion of your reality. When you are loving yourself, you are loving others. When you are loving others, you are loving yourself. When you are having joy in what you are doing, you are giving joy to the world--there is no separation between you and the world."
Sheila Andersen, in the Leading Edge Review, wrote: "What does it mean to love and to be loved? People everywhere are seeking a higher perspective than the popular view of romance. This outstanding book goes to the core of the issue by illuminating the nature of love itself as a reality that is always available. Topics include sexuality, anger, body image, loneliness, boundaries, listening, and finding a mate, framed within a larger context. With vibrant clarity, it will have a resounding impact on the way we look at love from now on."
Key Carey, author of The Starseed Transmissions: "This book positively radiates love. There is genuine wisdom here."
Ram Dass, author of How Can I Help? and Be Here Now, says "Loving from Your Soul is quite beautiful. Michael comes through loud and clear. I'm delighted that Michael is around."
From John Friedlander, co-author of Psychic Psychology: "This is channeling at its best. Loving from Your Soul is more than just excellent--it captures a lovely combination of compassion and intellectual clarity."
Mayo Gray, author of The Savage Season, said, Loving from Your Soul is superb and brings great joy. It touches the profound depths of who we are. It is far and away the best book on love I have ever read, exploring how we can love from the deepest and strongest part of ourselves. I experienced tears of recognition as I read it."
