Power of the Soul - Inside Wisdom for an Outside World by JOHN HOLLAND
I am soul. I have unlimited potential. I now step into my power, and I appreciate all of me. The Divine Source flows in me, through me, and from me. I can achieve anything I want. I now know myself as I really am. I own my power. I am power.
John Holland's series of affirmations brings us into a place where an innate understanding - of who we are and what we are - can occur. We are spiritual beings in a physical body, and our Power is of the Soul.
Long before Holland brings us these affirmations in Power of the Soul, he guides us through the occasionally-intense process of self-recognition. (I highly recommend having a box of tissues handy while reading Chapter 5: The Healer Within; although, come to think of it, you may need them for Chapter 4: The Power of Love, or Chapter 6: Breaking Free: Turning the Past into a Bridge for the Future.) Each chapter in this book sets a firm foundation - this is not a "la-la" book - and builds on the next. Readers familiar with Holland's work will recognize much of the message set forth in Chapter 3: The Unfoldment of Your Soul Senses from his Psychic Navigator. Readers unfamiliar with Psychic Navigator will nonetheless find this chapter eminently readable and may be inspired to further reading.
Within each chapter, the reader will find everything from practical exercises to realistic lifestyle changes to facilitate this journey of self-recognition - of soul-recognition. Although filled with the practical, Holland does not leave out the esoteric. The reader is gently guided through the world of clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, synchronicities, chakras, prana, chi, auras and energy. His at-ease style of writing makes these concepts readily accessible to those both familiar and unfamiliar with them. But don't be fooled by that at-ease style; the message contained within is powerful and transformational.
John Holland's Power of the Soul - Inside Wisdom for an Outside World is a keeper. The exercises, the esoteric information, and the lifestyle tips all make this a book you'll want to consult frequently. Meanwhile, I'll be buying a second copy to leave in a train station or at an airport, where I know someone is waiting to read it.
