Review

"A breakthrough for tomorrow's teachers, healers, and leaders who want to be their higher selves now." -- Catalyst

"The Earth Life Series is a trilogy of books that I must confess I did not read in their proper order. I didn't discover the series until I received the proof copy of Spiritual Growth - the last book in the series - and read from cover to cover. Unlike some channels whose messages seem to need hours of decoding, Orin's language is crystal clear. For an example, see page 32 of the March/April 1989 issue of Body, Mind, & Spirit.

I then went on to read the first two books in the series, Living with Joy and Personal Power Through Awareness. Surprisingly there is no duplication of information. Orin's ideas remain clear, concise and eminently practical. An astonishing array of life situations are exposed and opened to light with a compassionate understanding of the human condition. Orin's suggestions are laced with examples and stories that help the reader see how they work. Each chapter is followed by worksheets and meditations so the lessons can be immediately put into practice.

The meditations help to open pathways for the teachings to be absorbed. The teachings, in turn, augment the meditation experience so together they work to bring about change.

I found that the writing always seemed new, which to me, is a sure sign of spiritual depth. When I reread sections weeks later they seemed quite different. Of course, they were the same; it was I who had changed. Some teachings that had seemed difficult were now obvious and I realized how powerful many of the exercises had been. It is not that the information was new, only that it had been presented with a simplicity that allowed it to be grasped at many different levels.

It is this very simplicity combined with unerring guidance to the highest good that make the Earth Life Series a powerful light along whichever path of growth you choose." (Body Mind Spirit magazine, October 1989)

"Spiritual Growth is a way of looking at life, of getting in touch with what Roman calls your higher self. This higher self is within us all, Roman believes, waiting to be tapped with some practice. Roman shows us how. This is a positive book, one that takes the golden rule and expands it way beyond personal relationships.

Spiritual Growth seeks to strip us of blinders, to see good even in those we don't like, to find love within us, to use the power of enveloping ourselves in light and then transmitting that light out to someone we want to reach. It's a spiritual book, but not kooky in the sense that it asks us to go into a lotus position or climb some mountain to find nirvana. Roman is a practical spiritualist, saying to the reader to stop in the middle of a trying day and take a deep breath, to reach inside to find a direction. The mind is a wonderful storehouse of energy, Roman believes, just waiting to be unleashed for our personal benefit.

But Roman doesn't believe that we should just hold all of this spirituality inside. Looking outward to find good in everything that we do, Roman writes, is the way to manifest positive beliefs that heighten your outlook on life."(The Tribune, Colorado Press) -- Reviews

There is a danger today in the "new-age" milieu whereby psychism is mistaken for spirituality and astral glamour is misconstrued as inner development. In the 1970s the metaphysically disenchanted in the West enthroned the Eastern gurus as pillars of high spirituality; but in the 1980s, this habit of adulation shifted to disincarnate light beings. At least the gurus were personally present to scold disciples at moments of spiritual aberration. This isn't possible in today's floriation of channeled guides sans credentials, and some well-intentioned neophytes might find themselves routed unhappily into the developmental ditch from unreliable texts. In many respects Spiritual Growth is an instructive exemplar of both this inherent danger and the uplifting message of light that most channeled works strive to impart. It is the fifth in a series by California channel Roman-a warm, friendly, simple dictation on die elementary principles of personal development presented by a disincamate spirit named Orin. The intentions are laudable; namely, to move readers into a participation in the higher dimensional expressions of the Self. This is facilitated through advice, examples, and visualizations. Generally, the text, which is entirely Orin's, moves the reader forward pleasantly into an arena of light, hope, and positive attitudes. -- From Independent Publisher

Format: Paperback
I first came across one of Sanaya Roman's books back in the mid-90's and I remember clearly the first part of the book said, once you begin reading this book, you will never forget it, because it will change your life forever. 'Spiritual Growth', and all her books give you the profound knowledge that everyone already knows, but just needs to remember. These books offer the guidelines to the human mind, body and spirit without the cloud of fear, guilt and submission that religions require. Everything about your life is a choice, and everything in your life is a reflection of you, that you have brought to yourself. Understanding this energy element is the key to taking control of your own life, which is real internal power. Knowing that problems in your life are challenges YOU have created to enable your growth, and if you don't learn from that lesson, you will be stuck in that loop until you do so. By the way, this is not a New Age religion book nor am I a New Ager, this is a book about energy and our place within that energy. Once you have placed yourself in a religion, you have imprisioned and limited your growth as a spiritual being. If someone asks you what you believe in, the answer is simple...."Energy" After you have read the entire series from Sanaya Roman, you are then ready to take on David Icke and his book "Children Of The Matrix", who will expand your spiritual consciousness to its breaking point. Remember your true self and realize the only real truth is love, everything else is an illusion.

Until two years ago I was not aware that there is such a thing as the higher self. Then I met a teacher who taught me:

There is a you that existed long before the you that you know now
When you were born you were as one with this you
Which is the perfect you
This part of you is the higher and wiser part of you
You were separated as you grew
As your ego developed you lost touch with this part of you

As you developed the beliefs that you thought would sustain you in this material world
You lost sight of this you who remained constant and unchanged
Perhaps you did not know this you still existed
Instead you struggled and suffered in this world
You lost sight of your higher purpose,
Your fears prevented you living your dreams
If you could be the you that you always wanted to be this is the you you would be

This part of you has many names, the authentic self or the higher self, and is perfect, perfect physique, perfect health perfect love, free of all your imperfections
Part of your mission on earth is to reconnect with your higher self so you can realise your higher purpose.

Imagine meeting your higher self and then merging with that energy, and reclaiming that part of you. Your higher self will guide you with unconditional love and wisdom as you follow the higher path. As you do this, you feel an increase in energy, perhaps some tingling as your vibration naturally increases.

This book will guide you with easy to follow visualizations, wisdom, insights, and instruction. Enjoy the journey.

Format: Paperback
This practical book teaches you how to connect with the wisdom of your Higher Self - with the Light and bring it into your daily life - by living it and expressing it. The process brings you into a state of Oneness and you being to live your life from this awareness, divinely guided and expressing the will of God / the will of your Higher Self - rather than the will of your human ego. You merge with divine, like a drop of water merges with an ocean and are then able to express infinite love, power and wisdom of your Divine Self. When you do live from this state of consciousness, you become centered. Non-attachment, which is also dealt with in this book - becomes in a way a natural side-effect of the entire process - because the only thing you desire, the only little prayer that you have is "Thy will be done". When you live your daily life fully aware of, and feeling and expressing the presence of your Greater Self, you don't need to hope or believe that it is there - you KNOW it, and you TRUST it wholeheartedly - you know that it is your best friend and that it has your best interests at heart - so you let it express through you freely - and you know that it doesn't matter what may come or go out of your life - whatever you may ever need will be always supplied to meet all of your needs. In this way, your begin living an effortless life. You neither have any need or desire to manipulate others, nor are they able to manipulate you any more - because you are now true only to your Greater Self (to God) and all that you desire to do - wholeheartedly - is let Its will express through you and your life, because through your own experience, the moment you surrender to Its guidance, you very fast learn that that's the better way, and the easier way to live one's life.Read more ›

I think that in the world there is still some confusion between religion and spirituality. You can be religious, but not spiritual. You can know all the creeds, follow all the dogmas, practice all the rites and passages but if there is no Spirit involved in with what you are doing and practicing, what good is it? I think the main reason why more and more people don't break out of their old religious mindsets is because they have become superstitious about their beliefs. They fear that God might punish them or forsake them or send them to hell for attempting to expand their beliefs.

This book really gave me some valuable insights on how you can truly spiritualize the ordinary...because NOTHING is ordinary! Everything is already Spirit. We don't make something spiritual...we look to see where the Spirit might be in this situation. And maybe you're grumbling to yourself, "There ain't nothin' spiritual about my situation..."

Let me give you a few reminders, if you're experiencing bad health than this is your opportunity to express good health. Start throwing away the ding dongs and cheetos and start buying apples and bananas. Pour the beer down the drain and start drinking water and green tea. Get off the couch and take a walk. But above all else, realize that Spirit is your health. Every cell, every atom, every strand of your being is made in the Image and Likeness of Perfect Health. Your body wants to renew Itself right now. It's not your body that is to blame, it's what you're telling yourself, it's what you are believing. Say to yourself now, "I am healthy. My body is vibrant and alive. I feel good. I now decide to express health and vibrancy each and every day." Say this to yourself morning, noon, and night. Talk about wealth. talk about vibrancy.
