Not an easy task. But if we are willing to explore this promising possibility then the intimate exercises in her new book, Soul Vows, can guide us up the chakra system's ladder of enlightenment to discover our own soul's purpose.As we experience the heartfelt steps of questioning, writing, listening, chanting, and moving, we find ourselves climbing to higher states of awareness....Right along with the paradox of going deeper and deeper into the mystery of who we are with each revelation.Through the seven chakras, Janet Conner beautifully illustrates how everyone is wired to experience the Divine directly. As each vow from our soul is uniquely discovered in each chakra, we finally find our most natural personal statements until we feel whole and our soul vows feel complete. We ultimately become comfortable expressing the magnificent Truth of who we are. Imagine that! Janet Conner did, and she encourages us to do the same knowing all the while that these vows will continue to evolve in their meanings and purpose for our lives.By the end of "Soul Vows" I was dancing in joy with my seven sacred mantras merging as One within me. My Inner Mystic remains in an ecstatic mutual embrace with the Divine in me, through me, and as me. There's no going back now. Only onward and upward, dancing with God every day.Thank you, Janet Conner. Diving into Soul Vows has opened my heart even more than I thought was possible. My soul knows I AM forever free to be Me! Who wouldn't want everyone to feel that way?" --Linda Linker Rosenthal - Transpersonal Psychologist, author of "The Seven Chakra Sisters: Make Friends with the Inner Allies Who Keep You Healthy, Laughing, Loving, and Wise"
