Since she herself was once a skeptic and then an "overnight psychic", her advice feels much more pure. Her book was not meant to be a text for the university scholar doing PhD research, nor does she claim that this should be one's only source for learning about spirituality, meditation and ghostbusting.
I have personally gone through her "Laundry List" of exercises and found it as wonderful guidance in opening up my psychic abilities. My children are also finding themselves unknowingly passing on messages and then giving themselves a double take of disbelief.
As a family we are noticing more, loving more and learning to rely on God and intuition. We are doing that based in part by the exercises in Roe's book. She's gotten some literary flack, but if the exercises in her book help a person or a family to grow and develop spiritually, why wouldn't you read the book?
Amen, sister! (I wrote my book Back in Time Tarot, also by Hampton Roads, under similar--and very crazy--circumstances).
Well, if you're a busy housewife like Lorraine Roe and me, but also feel pulled and prompted to learn about paranormal activity, understand your unusual dreams/visions, contact spirit guides, practice divination, talk to the dead, perform ghostbusting, honor your kids' psychic abilities, and follow intuition for your highest good, you're in luck...so read on.
Lorraine Roe was like many career women, running ragged with a fast-paced life as an Emmy-award winning, skeptical investigative reporter. But her life now? Much different. Some would say verrrry different, in fact.
In The Psychic Housewives' Handbook, the author serves as an outrageous, comical, and practical personal trainer by providing helpful advice and personal anecdotes for those experiencing the initial pangs of "paranormal" living.
Emphasizing that we're all psychic, Roe demystifies the world of vibes, introducing readers to ways to detect, ground, remove, facilitate, engage and channel various types of energy. Yet, she also gives real-world tips and examples on the importance of radical self-care, setting boundaries, heeding gut instinct, asking for support, listening to your "little Buddhas" (i.e.Read more ›
It is written in a witty and down-to-earth manner that makes it easy for the reader to follow along with the exercises at the end of each chapter. The author uses personal experiences to illustrate each topic, and presents them in such an entertaining way that makes this book really enjoyable.
I found it easy to understand and relate to the concepts presented in
this book - even as a beginner!
I highly recommend "Psychic Housewives" to anyone interested in psychic development!
Now, I'm going to get on my soapbox for just a moment. One of the reasons that the New Age community is often scoffed at by many is because of books like this. It's not the content, it's the lack of quality. For some reason there is a lot that is published in the New Age section of the bookshelf that is just poorly written, poorly edited, poorly thought out, poorly formatted, poorly . . . yes, and on and on. No wonder it isn't taken seriously.
This book definitely knocked the idea of being "psychic" rather than built it or supported it.
So, now for specifics:
* The writing is sloppy. Much of it reads like a draft (sometimes even a flippant rough draft where someone, hopefully not the editor, thought that the "fresh spontaneity" of the drafted phrase warranted the lack of coherence).
* There are sections that read with good content: for instance, the section on what to do if there are ghosts in your house. In this section, the author lays out what to do and, importantly, WHY to do it. She makes sense and gives some nice, grounded advice.
* There are sections that read with what almost qualifies as "no content": for instance, the section on dealing with "dark energy.Read more ›
