About the Author

Vaishali uses her understanding of mystic Emmanuel Swedenborg s wisdom as the central core of her spiritual practice and writings. Vaishali demystifies mysticism by offering answers to many thought provoking questions about Spirituality Truth. Vaishali has survived a life fraught with every possible personal challenge available to a human experience: the violent death of a loved one, lying cheating significant others, a messy painful divorce, financial devastation due to life threatening illness and injuries complete with years of physical agony. These experiences have shaped her work with honest heartfelt and deeply insightful knowledge on how to understand the purpose behind human life on earth.

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.

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.

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

I loved Vaishali's first book "You Are What You Love". Now I cannot decide which book is my favorite, since "Wisdom Rising" is just as brilliant!

With humor and penetrating wisdom, Vaishali covers every imaginable subject that has Spiritually relevance.

I especially enjoyed the chapters about unlikely Spiritual teachers, such as comics Lenny Bruce and Bill Hicks. Yes, Lenny Bruce! Vaishali's Spiritual perspective of film director Frank Capra has forever changed how I see his films. Although I have heard plenty of Oscar Wilde quotes, I really didn't know much about his life or what kind of person he was. You don't know whether to laugh or cry when reading this chapter. Vaishali lets you in on his life of adversity, followed by a liberal sprinkling of Oscar's witty quotes on these same situations. His humor in the face of his problems gives great insight into the type of person he was. Also, most of the quotes were new to me.

I highly recommend this book. The chapters are short and light. This is truly a joy to read and share with friends and family. Vaishali, you rock!
