Format: Paperback
There are so many reasons to praise this book the hardest part is to know where to begin! I do love the layout and the sketches prefacing each chapter. I love that each part can be read independently especially as I was going through the list of sections and chapters certain ones called to me to read them first.

Vaishali has such an authentic, funny and wise voice. Today there are many spiritual teachers but few combine their own wisdom with humor and current terminology. Vaishali is able to speak about consciousness and spirituality and make it accessible for everyone to understand. She quotes many greats from Swedenborg to Lenny Bruce and shares their divine wisdom with us as she applies it to our current lives.

Vaishali is obviously very intelligent and well studied. She makes you think about your own life and gives you practical yet easy ways to start taking action to become more aware, conscious and in control of your own life.

I feel anyone would gain wisdom from Vaishali's book and I know I will be giving this book to many for Christmas. This book is very timely and I encourage anyone, no matter what stage of spiritual development they are in -- to pick it up.

Format: Paperback
Well, the rumors about this book certainly were true. This book is downright provocative, it's got some shocking material, it's controversial. It's all that and it does it with flavour.

I've come to believe you can think of people of having two identities. One identity is like the superficial shell, the costume, the mask, the person we put on out in the world. The person that makes their way through life conforming to others, compromising for others, and withholding to oneself. This the average person on this planet. This is the same person that will wake up 40 years later and become horrified looking at the life they have lived, the job they have worked at, the people that they have spent their life with.

Then there is a person's real identity, the under the surface, straight to the core identity. This is the identity that goes beyond boundaries because it knows the truth. This is the identity that truly knows how to live and love.

Vaishali is one of the few authors and teachers that knows how to talk directly to a person's core identity and help you unclothe the fake you, the limiting identity, the mask you were. She guides you to make steps toward realising a life that is in full accord with your real identity. And she does it in a way that is both entertaining as it is incisively insightful. She does it without pretense, she cuts out the bs, goes straight to the heart of the matter and she communicates it as if you were her very best friend. She'll make you laugh in the process.

Wisdom Rising is a book you can pick up at any point and start at any page. The chapters are short and the topics, while related, don't have to be read in sequence. It's like being able to have a conversation with the author whenever you like.

Format: Paperback
Wisdom Rising has been a fun and interesting read! We may not have received a Life 101 manual at birth, but if you've found your way to this book, you have found an amazing guide to get you through it!

Vaishali, in her loving and humorous way, reveals to us the many ways we become distracted or off track on our life journey. She's a modern-day sage that you don't have to fly half way around the globe to receive her wisdom! All you have to do is open this book and begin your inward journey. The journey of discovering the truth of who you are, and how you've gotten off track by what you choose to give your attention to. More importantly, she skillfully guides you in getting back on track!

Through her own life experience and the wisdom gleaned from her beloved Emanuel Swedenborg, Vaishali infuses this book with one golden morsel of truth after the next. The best part is she does it with her own brand of light hearted humor! No heavy, guilt-ridden tome to suffer through.

Wisdom Rising is an easy and fun read that you can pick up, open it to any chapter, and start reading without losing a thing! It's perfect for any level of reader or seeker!

Kudos to you for this love and wisdom filled book, and kudos to your artist for the great graphics that punctuate each chapter.

Blessings,
Julia

Simply put, Vaishali book "Wisdom Rising" like her first book "You Are What You love" has "IT". Her wisdom, her compassion and her understanding of life; its joys, its frustrations and everything in between are second to none.

WR takes the reader on an exploration into the forms of consciousness, and shares how to identify and relate to the different types of "knowing" available to the human experience.

Vaishali shares amazing stories about how she uses love as a primary component to heal terminal illness twice along with her compelling ability to liberate your mind, by avoiding or extricating yourself from the Universal pitfalls that every human being must contend with. WR also offers comfort and hope to readers, in such a way that you KNOW this author truly cares and lives what she writes about.
