From the Publisher
BRINGING HEAVEN DOWN TO EARTH
Do you feel connected to Spirit? Im not talking about a religious background or affiliation. Im talking about being connected to the power of the Heavensand bringing it right down here to Earth to use in your everyday life.
For many people, spiritual connection means going to church and praying. And even though they may believe they have a soul or spirit within, they feel separate from the power of the Universe. They can worship it and form religions around it, but it remains outside of them. Only in times of crisis or noble cause do they feel justified in calling upon that powerand even then they believe the response (or lack thereof) is entirely up to God.
The fact is, even those of us who believe in our oneness with Spirit often find it difficult to envision such a tremendous force as a tangible, viable energy in our daily lives. The idea that God is within each and every one of us may be inspiring, but its just pretty prose unless we can somehow get it into bite-sized pieces.
What we really need is a way to make our lives better. To be happier and more at ease, find a fulfilling job, create a great marriage, help our kids, be a good friend, make payments, reduce the stress in our lives. You know, get through the day with as much grace and wisdom as possible.
We need help with the real stuff in our livesthe ups and downs and challenges and yearnings we experience every day. If the power of the Heavens cant be brought down to that level, then what earthly use is it? I dont expect to be creating planets anytime soon, do you?
Its amazing, really. Many of us believe we are divine vessels in physical form, and yet take any mundane human problem, such as a bill that needs to be paid or a deadline thats too close, and suddenly we forget all about that. We were born with the power that created the world, and yet we fall apart when we have to create a workable schedule! Somehow our true nature gets buried under the constant hum of our busy minds, our busy lives, and our busy fears. Even with all the poetic reassurance of the omnipotent support within us thats provided by popular religion these days, we still feel alone.
But what if it could be different? Lets explore a shift in perception that will make your connection to the creative force of the Heavens so real you can reach out and grasp it. One that will turn familiar but abstract expressions, such as "God is within you" and "Ask and you shall receive," into something immediate and real. Suddenly the expansive power of the Universe, which had seemed so impossible to relate to, will be sitting right in the palm of your hand. No longer will God seem like a lofty king choosing among the myriad of prayers drifting His way. Instead, Heand all of the Heavenswill become your ally and confidante, sitting right beside you and supporting your every intention.
In these pages youll discover a fresh, revitalized way of looking at spirituality that will ever so gently bring God down to Earth. And consider this: What if thats exactly where Hes always wanted to be? What if Hes been calling to you all along, reminding you that you are an extension of Him, and that as such it is your prerogativeno, your God-given missionto take command of this omnipresent power?
As far as Im concerned, the single most important message in this book is this:
BY DIVINE DESIGN WE ARE CREATORS, AND IT IS OUR BIRTHRIGHTINDEED, OUR DIRECTIVETO JOYFULLY WIELD THE POWER OF THE UNIVERSE.
This bears repeating. Im saying that we are extensions of the creative energy of the Universe, and that this vast resource is always available to uswithout restrictions. Im saying that the same creative force that existed from the beginning of time is our essential nature. Im saying that flowing through each and every one of us is a dynamic energy that is ours to use deliberately to create the life we desire. Its potential is unlimited, unboundedand it belongs to each of us.
When we see ourselves as divinely sanctioned creators, something quite amazing happens. The transformation is unmistakable. Life is lived from a different vantage point. We recognize our authority to summon the vast resources of the Heavens and all of the eager spiritual assistance thats available for everything we do. We discover that all conceivable tasks can be facilitated and orchestrated, and all conceivable problems can be solved, by our connection to this incredible power. With this new awareness we can shape our lives on purpose, creating joy and fulfillment with such ease that it feels like a miracle. Forevermore our lives can be a deliberate, joyful expression of the infinite Source of all creation and possibilities. Heaven can finally be brought down to Earth.
And its really quite simple. Its as near as your next thoughtor even closer. Even if you read no more than the first few chapters of this book, your life can be changed forever.
As Oliver Wendell Holmes said, "A mind stretched by a new idea can never go back to its original dimensions."

The idea of enlisting help from angels, saints, or spiritual helpers is not a new one. For example, some Christian denominations teach that angels or saints are more than willing to help humans in their everyday lives as they navigate the twists and turns of earthly living.
However, many are disillusioned with formal religion in the new millennium and one result is the sense of being alone in the Universe. Yet, there remains a desire to connect with something bigger than the self-to believe that someone or something is looking out for us and is willing to help manage our lives.
With war, terroristic acts, cruelty and suffering flooding 24-hour news channels and other media, it's not uncommon to hear jaded folks wondering "If there is a God, then why in the world is he asleep on the job?!"
What hasn't been considered is that we are the proverbial hands, feet, eyes, and mouth of the Divine. Could it be that we "have not because we ask not", as Jesus taught? Violating free will is not in the plan of the Heavens, so then could it be that we must engage the spirits of creation on our behalf?
In the book Hiring the Heavens - A Practical Guide to Developing Working Relationships with the Spirits of Creation author Jean Slatter makes a convincing case that not only are the spirits of creation ready to help us with the "real stuff" of life, but that it is our birthright and mission as extensions of God to joyfully wield the creative power of the Universe.
To be sure, some are not ready to assume the posture of a creator because this in turn implies responsibility. But as Slatter states:
"When we see ourselves as divinely sanctioned creatures, something quite amazing happens. The transformation is unmistakable. We live life from a different vantage point. We recognize our authority to summon the vast resources of the Heavens and all of the eager spiritual assistance that's available for everything we do. We discover that all conceivable problems can be solved by our connection to this incredible power. With this new awareness we can shape our lives purposefully, creating joy and fulfillment with such ease that it feels like a miracle. From now on our lives can be deliberate, joyful expressions of the infinite Source of all creation and possibilities. Heaven can finally be brought down to Earth."
Hiring the Heavens conveys a simple message that is found in other books and teachings, but is packaged in a fresh, accessible way. Slatter approaches enlisting help from the Heavens as a hiring process. Just as you might hire an interior decorator, a chef, a babysitter or an accountant, you can do the same with the spirit helpers. In fact, Slatter asserts that for every earthly "job" there is a spiritual counterpart waiting in the wings.
For example, let's say your house is a disaster, the kids need to be taken to different extra-curricular activities and bills are sitting on your desk. You feel overwhelmed. The first thing you may choose to do is "hire" a spiritual organizer! Ask for organizational aid for accomplishing what you need to do (preferably with joy and grace intact!). You can even create a spirit committee with your Organizer at the helm. Invoke a spiritual accountant to help you deal with the bills, a spiritual housecleaner to help you de-clutter and tidy up, and a spiritual chauffeur to get the kids where they need to go on time. Hold "staff meetings" and delegate tasks to the spirits of creation.
Sounds too good to be true? All I can say is get Hiring the Heavens and try the process yourself! I've tried it several times (from a skeptical viewpoint) and I was amazed at how it worked. For example, I was looking through my media center trying to find a particular CD-ROM. After looking through several rows of CD's and CD-ROM's for some time, I remembered the concept of hiring the Heavens. I decided to try it out and said under my breath "I need a spiritual detective to help me find this software!" I no more got the words out and my eyes alighted upon the CD-ROM I needed.
I couldn't believe it.
I've tried it several times already, with amazing success. I'm building up my "hiring muscles" as it were, because I had lost faith in angels or spirit helpers over the years-mostly as a result of extreme difficulty (such as my first husband contracting leukemia, suffering for a year, and then dying.) We were both Charismatic Christian pastors at the time, and actually *taught* the concept of sending angels out on assignment. To experience what we did left me disappointed and wary of any "help" from the heavens. However, I now realize that I needed some major paradigm shifts in the area of expectations, fear, life purpose, and the point of "Earth school".
Hiring the Heavens is a 131-paged paperback and includes several "Committee Worksheets" in the back of the book. Also included are three "Angel Express" Cards issued from the Bank of Creation. Tucked onto the book flap and easily cut out for use, they are valid today/always/forever.
SO, for two years, I've been with my love. He, unfortunately, had an extremely disturbed ex, who has stalked us and would not let up. He has been oblivious to how insane she is, as she is a talented manipulator. This person has been seen as a dark energy by 10 psychics, and they also saw her stamina at continuing to try to sabotage our relationship.
I saw an interview by Jean Slatter and bought her book a few weeks ago. I immediately hired a spiritual matchmaker to bring this person a man who would take up all of her attention and also to move her far away from where we live. I was just informed by my love, that two weeks ago, the psycho ex met and fell in love with a man, who she's now with. He lives in another country, normally! Hopefully the next phase of moving her away will also manifest.
I'm blown away, that after two years, this simple technique solved something that had been a huge problem!
This book illustrated the different ways I can work together with Angels to make my life a better one.
I am counting on Angels to guide me into a more productive and satisfying life and they are!
My heart is full of gratitude after having read this book.
I really recommend it, but you need to do your part the Angels will do the rest.
