Format: Paperback
The things that pop out from the

reading were:

1. You (Vaishali) are the world's biggest fan of Swedenborg;

2. Life is not a test- it is a practice (I particularly love that bite);

3. You are what you put your focus on ("where attention goes, energy flows"- Michael Bechwith);

4. focusing on the hardships and stresses of life only recreates them (the notion of hell);

5 focusing on the abundance of the universe only creates

them (the notion of Heaven);

6. Dreams are a way of getting in touch with the subconscious;

7. Feelings are a more accurate barometer of our truth than the thoughts and beliefs of our mind;

8. We create our own reality with where we put our love, i.e., our attention and emotionally charged foucs.

Vaishali writes with humor, candor and simplicity. She states that the information is not new, but the approach is. She lays out the path to a better way vividly by means that most will pick up on immediately. I purchased the CD first. It was brief, but had a strong message, however, I needed more detail to get a fuller understanding. The 400 page book provides that and more. In fact, her clear, lucid presentation was a shock. She consistently used references to many diferent religions to make her points. Her frequent references to the principles of Ayurvedic medicine and beliefs as well as Chinese Medicine were quite informative This is easily one of the best books on spirituality available!

Vaishali speaks with a clarity rarely seen in so many spiritual-self help books of today. She sets out a clear path to not only what people have called "enlightenment" but a path toward wakefulness and understanding. The path is simple: Love, or rather, Love in act. This book is written with the growth of the reader as the goal. Refreshing and on target.

The premise of the book is that you create what ever you focus on, and that what you focus on is what you love. However, one can focus on anything, it does not mean you love it. So right from the beginning I was not following what she said. I will point out a couple of other points that did not ring true for me, though there were more than a couple. Here is one example:
On page 99 she writes: "Red is the color associated with Christ consciousness." That is the complete opposite of what I have ever heard, read, seen or experienced. Red is usually seen in the root chakra, or at least associated with that area most of the time, and gold in the halo area. Not that there is anything wrong with red. But its the opposite end in the spectrum of color.

She also wrote that Angels used to be people in other incarnations, no exceptions. There are authors who work with angels and they do not make that claim.

Then there is the idea that everything you see outside of yourself is in your own mind first or it would not be reflected back to you. Yet Jesus is pure and was dealing with duality. How could duality it be reflected back to him if he doesn't have it? Perhaps its because we are all One? If that is true, then the first premise is not true. We do see what is not from us.
My reading experience with this book was that I felt like I was trying to get clarity from muddled thoughts, that I was reading a report from a compilation of books she read. It wasn't clear, it was redundant and a tad preachy.

If life has got you by the short hairs, you'd better check this book out. It's really wild, and at the same time, reaches a level of depth you are not going to find elsewhere.

Vaishali is a brilliant teacher of consciousness. Her understanding of spirituality far surpasses most individuals. After all, who do you know who can talk about the spirituality of Mini-Me as easily as she can talk about the world's major religions?

I have interviewed tons of best selling authors in the field of spirituality and consciousness, and truthfully, Vaishali stands above most of them. She is also extremely funny, so you are going to enjoy this book a lot.

What I especially like about Vaishali's book is how she shares so freely and unabashedly the very highest that is in her. So many other writers and teachers are almost shy by comparison, meting out little glimpses into their wisdom. Vaishali puts it all out there. "Here's what I've been given," she says, "enjoy!"

Another thing I appreciate is how Vaishali translates deep teachings in terms we can all understand. This ability of hers is a rare gift.

Thank you, Vaishali, for this book and for your generous spirit.

Vaishali's exquisite You Are What You Love reminds me of a stimulating conversation so juicy it is worth staying up all night to enjoy. The subject matter bridges the metaphysical with the practical and makes the subject matter an exciting adventure for both the mind and the heart. The choice of subtopics reflects the wisdom of the author; and her humility and love shine through on every page. Lighthearted without being lightweight, this is a book I'd recommend to the neophyte as well as the spiritual sophisticated. You Are What You Love is an excellent read: I'll look forward to Vaishali's future works.
