I began my own spiritual journey back in 2002. I then spent 15 years reading, learning and attending a variety of spiritual workshops I My friend passed away and then my marriage broke down. I went through my own dark night of the soul. Six months of utilising the tools I had learnt in theory and putting them into practise. I decided I wanted to write a book about my spiritual toolbox. I spent 6 months writing that I wanted to write a book, then started telling people I was going to write a book then finally began it in April 2018. A Gentle Hug for the Soul is my first book and my second is nearly complete! I have loved writing since I was a young girl where I would often make up names for characters and animals in books. I love reading motivational and inspirational stories. It is so true in what they say, there is definitely a book within all of us!
Love it, I'm some 63% through (LISTENING) to is read our by Mme
"As a Reiki Master Teacher myself, I've learnt new stuff too, the crystals has really valuable/additional information for me/my wife too: -)
Some lovely spiritual one liners too.. Best one so far is "Friendships are here for a reason, a season or a lifetime."
A poem too about friendships, for that you'll need to get the book: -)
FAB read well listen thus Far Lindsay: -)""A great introduction to & overview of the many holistic approaches to healing & supporting yourself through tough times & to fulfilment. Good read for people who are open minded & interested in developing their spiritual side.""Love love love! Gripping read. I devoured it in one go. Truly inspirational. This book is for everyone, the practical tips are a lovely touch.""I'd downloaded this on Kindle a while ago after hearing Lindsay speak and feeling what a grounded, lovely person she seemed. Finally had chance to read the book this week and it's great! Books in the self-help or spiritual genre can sometimes grate on me if they come across as patronising or as though "one size fits all" answer, but Lindsay's approach was fresh and real.
Since we are all spiritual beings and embracing rather than ignoring our spirit tends to work out best, this book offers a fabulous "where to start" and overview of different key areas. We all come to the topic of spirituality in a different way (and it certainly wasn't taught in school!)
Lindsay offers a "spiritual toolkit" for times of distress and upheaval. But really, she's achieved quite a thing by writing a book aimed at absolutely anyone for any time of life. The book is short, easily accessible, to the point and written in such a friendly tone, that anyone can pick this up regardless of spiritual beliefs or prior understanding and learn something valuable right away.
The book is helpfully laid out in sections so the reader can dip into certain topics e.g. if you'd like to know more about crystals, auras, past lives or spirit guides, just go to that section.
I thought it was great, because what works for one will not always work for another. The author makes no attempt to force her beliefs onto others, just provides very gentle, loving guided information.
Lindsay shares personal stories (a light scattering) to shed truth, light and warmth throughout her book. I imagine I will dip back into this book at various times and hone in deeper on various areas that caught my eye. Thank you, Lindsay: )"
