Her research into why we in North America associate "spookiness" or "woo wooness" to the signs, symbols and intuitive "hunches" that are constantly sent our way was a big "aha!" for me. No wonder so many people are misinformed or downright frightened of the idea of listening to and receiving oracles and omens from Spirit. This bias has been systematically installed into our religious and cultural programming, especially in the West. No judgement on any particular religion or movement...it's just fortifies my own beliefs to know the facts.
The entire book is stuffed with powerful reminders that we are all infinite souls that are never disconnected from our Creator, from Divine Love, or from our loved ones on the other side. People with the same questions that you and I have, have throughout the ages, sought and received answers in fascinating ways. Thank you, Colette, for "collecting" them and presenting them so beautifully, while reinforcing our inner knowing that all is well, that our lives really do have meaning, and that there is so much more!
I was intrigued by the title and subject matter and decided to give it a go. I'm currently on a spiritual kick and enjoy these sorts of books, especially the kind that have to do with signs and spiritual guides in general. I love hearing about other people's connection with spirit.
The book gives an interesting exploration into spiritual messages and how they're received, but never really gets in too deep. Colette seems to only barely skim the outer edges of her subject, leaving the reader thirsty for more insight as the book goes on. The book also gives the impression that the author was so excited about her subject matter that she jumped from place to place without really landing anywhere. It was kind of confusing.
Her writing style was also very hard to follow at times, like she was going for a friendly conversational tone that only fell flat because she was trying too hard. I also got the sense that the author was going for confidence in her abilities but chose her words poorly. This made her come across like she thought she was the only 100% accurate psychic in the world. It was a little disconcerting, as I'm sure that's not what she meant.
There was also a whole boring chapter where she gets into religion that I felt I had to slog through. It made no sense at all and it felt like she was only relaying something she overheard from someone else, trying to make it like it was her own discovery. It was terrible and I learned nothing from that chapter. I just wanted her blither to be over with and for her to move on. She eventually did, but the following chapters weren't exactly revelations either.
While this book contains some interesting stories from Colette and her friends, it's not really all that meaty or informative. I finished the book feeling a little confused. Was that all? Isn't there more? Wasn't I supposed to learn something? These are the questions I asked myself when I finally put the book down. It left me feeling pretty unsatisfied compared to how much I was hoping to get from this book.
All in all, I would recommend it, since it does have some pretty interesting stories, but if you're looking to be fulfilled or inspired somehow, this book isn't it.
