By AF FirebirdThe Reluctant Goddess

Ellena Ripley is a bookshop owner from a rural town in the south of England – or so she thinks. But lately, she has a growing sense that life is not as it seems. At night, she dreams of a serene man who appears to be trying to tell her something; In the day, she can’t shake a feeling of expectation. But of what?

Meanwhile Hector, servant of LIFE and the man from Ellena’s dreams, has a dilemma. How do you tell someone they are a goddess? His previous attempts have met with disaster so he must be cautious, particularly when his new trainee, Boudica, formerly Queen of the Iceni tries to help. The question is can they succeed before it is too late?

I love reading about metaphysics and I truly enjoy fantasy fiction. This book combines the two in a wonderful way. I got sucked into the book straight away and enjoyed the varied characters and twists and turns of the story. Dogs that are guides, angels that do not follow the rules, Goddesses that think they are simply 48-year old women with high expectations and physical assets moving south. Nothing is quite as it seems in this book. Some of the scenes really made me laugh. To be able to make one think deeply of life at one moment and giggle at the next makes an author into an alchemist of sorts. I definitely recommend this book as it will inspire you to look at life from a different perspective and at the same time keep a sense of fun.

Course by Joanna Bristow-WatkinsJoanna Bristow-Watkins

The day began with an explanatory description of Melchisadec (the ruler of the Violet Ray), the Ray itself being the essence of a unique spiritual light, and the Halls of Amenti, the etheric temple where our Akashic Records are kept.  Joanna provided us with a folder of detailed notes covering all this and the very wide range of both qualities and uses of the Violet Ray, both historically and in the present. As the day progressed we were taken through each stage carefully and thoughtfully giving ample time for questions.

Joanna explained the different lines of the symbol, the Vessica, giving us details of each stream and its meaning. We then practised using the symbol and found this to be an extremely powerful experience. I felt that, once we had ‘drawn’ the complete Vessica the room was filled with the same coloured streams of energy. Joanna ensured we remained balanced and grounded before continuing.

After lunch, we received the Attunements which involved Joanna placing ancient sacred symbols into our aura at specific chakra points – this too was a very powerful and empowering experience. The Attunement begins a 21 day clearing cycle – each chakra point taking 24 hours in turn, and the cycle repeated 3 times – i.e. 3 x 7 = 21.

There is so much more I could say about this workshop, but it really needs to be experienced to gain the full benefit.

By Paul McCarthyAscension

Paul McCarthy’s Ascension offers a complete, in-depth guide to becoming an ascended master for those who want to be masters of their own spiritual transformations.

Ascension: Becoming an Ascended Master offers a guide to the ascension process that explores the various levels of human spiritual consciousness. It presents a modern and accessible approach to the subject of ascension and aims to empower spiritual seekers by providing the information that they need to know in order to navigate through the different levels of consciousness.

This model of ascension explains the experiences of each level of ascension in detail, as well as the unique lessons of each level and the requirements needed to ascend to the next level. Ascension traces the process and journey of ascension, placing a detailed focus on the levels of ascension, the spiritual lessons learned in the process, the keys to transformation, the concepts of integration and universal awareness, ways to monitor your progress, and methods for transcending your ego. Explore the wisdom of master teachers from the past who have experienced each level of consciousness and learn what it takes to be a modern-day ascended master.

I found this a very interesting book. Having read quite a lot about ascension, I expected to read much I already knew, and though this was partly the case, Paul McCarthy’s model on Ascension was truly helpful. The progression of ascension can be described as the journey through distinct levels of consciousness, which he calls Indigo, Crystal, Rainbow and Diamond. Key attributes and challenges are mentioned.

With this the book proves a descriptive road map for the Light worker on the ascension path. It helps one to find out where on the path one is and what is important in the current as well as future levels. Supportive strategies are mentioned throughout the book as well as helpful techniques. I would welcome more emphasis on this, to give the Ascension Seeker ways of moving through the levels with more ease and grace.
