by The Spiritual Sojourn CentreSpirit of White Jaguar

The CD starts with South American style music and the calls of birds with a deep underlying beat to soothe and relax the listener.

The female voice starts to list the links to Pachamama and Peru – Cuzco is the city of the White Jaguar and Lake Titicaca means Lake of the Stone White Jaguar. She also explains that more White Jaguar people are incarnating to help bring balance to Mother Earth.

The systems for guided meditation are then set up – following the breath and surrounding the self with White Light for protection. You are then guided to see Pachamama and White Jaguar. The voice explains that White Jaguar is with you because part of your spiritual journey is to be alone like White Jaguar. White Jaguar never seeks to be seen – you only know where it has been – White Jaguar does not need to depend on ego. White Jaguar comes to tell you to stop procrastinating and move forward with faith and courage. Don’t lash out at others from your own pain; honour others, ourselves, Mother Earth/ Pachamama, hearth and home.

Inca Shamans must follow the 4 fold path of the Medicine Wheel and the voice goes on to guide you along the directions South, West, North and East. Then there is a request for healing at all levels and the music comes back to the fore and the meditative state for healing is invoked. This goes on for about half of the taped session.

The voice returns and there is a call for us to transcend time and live life wisely and in harmony with Pachamama. We are asked to consider the way that we use resources and how we can be more respondent to the natural flow of our environment. White Jaguar medicine is then invoked for us to take control of our lives and become leaders. We are asked to send healing to Mother Earth. Then the tape begins to bring us back to ourselves, closes the chakras, leaving us revitalised and recharged. The voice ends with the welcome back to our lives.

The music returns and fades slowly out for the end of the session.

This meditation is easy to follow and has a good beginning and completion; you are left feeling refreshed and thoughtful about White Jaguar and Pachamama. The idea of the Medicine Wheel would have to be followed up in another form to have any benefit, but there is an abundance of Shamanic writing/guidance on this for those who are interested in taking it further. A good basic meditation for anyone to use, beginner or experienced meditator – though those with more experience may have wished for there to be a little less music and for it to have been shorter.

by Madeleine WalkerPets' Past Lives

Put your hands up if you have ever looked into a pet’s eyes and felt a familiarity that seems to run deeper than your current relationship?

Do you get the feeling that your animal companion chose you, rather than the other way round?

Madelaine Walker explains in this book, in her own individual case study on subjects such as “Why do our pets’ lives affect us now?”,  “Are animals always the same species in a past life?”,  “How can our pets heal us?”.  With each story you start to learn that animals are our spiritual teachers and know how privileged we are to share this planet with them.  Their welfare is so important and paramount in helping us to unravel and re-record aspects of our own past lives that could be holding us back in this lifetime; as well as our emotions and physical ailments.

I love Walker’s book and my soul is always touched by the way she connects so deeply with wild animals and the learnt lessons they teach us about this planet and about ourselves. It empowers us and opens our ability to listen and connect to all the beautiful creatures that we share this world with.

Produced for Jacqui Meadows of Spiritual SojournsUnicorn Magic

Unicorns bring magic into our lives. Coming from the same realm as the Angels they work on our higher consciousness and remind us of our connection to Source. Unicorns bring playfulness back into our lives, while dispelling the monsters within … those old thought forms that we carry subconsciously as negative programming through fear, and later as we grow up, cynicism about life. The Unicorn Collection invites you to receive very powerful healing especially in times of soul loss or where you have given your power away through difficult emotional situations in your life.

This beautiful collection offers three powerful meditations:

Unicorn Magic is the first guided visualisation. It invites you to explore the magic and alchemy in your life, i.e. what needs transmuting from lead to gold?

The second CD is called Unicorns in the Mist. This instrumental music meditation brings the gentle healing essence of the Unicorns close to you on the earth plane. This CD can be used for humans, horses and especially children in the home – notice the magic in your life when using this CD particularly when in Mother Nature as you connect with her. See the beautiful healing orbs as they bounce into your life.

The third and last of this trio is called Unicorn Enchantment. It’s guided visualisation invites you into the world of the unicorns. The dimension of angels and unicorns brings deep healing and soul retrieval into your life, and dispels all negativity within the aura. This is a powerful CD which takes the listener into an enchanting journey where unicorns live.

I loved receiving these three CD’s. One should take time out to enjoy them as they are an hour long each, parts of which are instrumental. The music is powerful yet relaxing. It is like a story in itself, taking you on a journey. The violin brings inner peace and the piano chords add deep relaxation. Tinkling sounds bring a sense of magic and enchantment. The voice guiding the meditations is pleasant and softly spoken. I did need to wear headphones as the music is a bit loud compared to the spoken meditation. Nonetheless this made the music really seep in helping let go of all that surrounded me and move into a deep alpha state.

I loved the first guided meditation where 12 unicorn guides bring rainbow light to your energy field, after which you are guided into a forest by Merlin himself to meet your Unicorn. After meeting your Unicorn it carries you away on its wings of light! The instrumental CD is lovely to play on the background during healing work and I will use it when doing my readings and making my sculptures. I am sure it will inspire me to make more unicorns. I will leave the third CD as a surprise. Suffice it to say it felt like a deeply healing and balancing CD to me.

By Madeleine WalkerThe Whale Whisperer

This has been the best book I have read in ages! I felt myself glued to Madeleline’s adventures and wanted to know about them from one chaper to the next without putting the book down. Madeleine’s adventures deliver messages from many different wild and sacred animal species including the white buffalo, the humpback whale, orcas and bears!

Through each animal, Madeleline translates the knowledge they convey to her to tell ‘us’ humans what we need to know, and not only save humanity but also the natural world.

When you read this book you are drawn in right form the very start by the power of Madeleine’s words, it helps you to re-awaken your deeper knowing and re-connect with them. Madeleine talks about how she overcomes her own fears of her ever-increasing personal power by communicating with these sacred creatures.

Definitely worth a read if you are animal communicator, a lover of animals or just want to deepen your understanding.

by Linda ShayDolphin Love

Linda Shay takes us on a journey into the pristine tropical waters of Hawaii where she communes, up close and personal, with a pod of wild Hawaiian spinner dolphins.

She tells us about one moment, with one dolphin, that changes her life forever.

Through interdimensional encounters with the dolphins on land, and magical close encounters with the dolphins in the sea, Linda becomes a bridge between the worlds of humans and dolphins. The bond of healing and love that has been forged unites her eternally with her beloved family of the sea.  This touching and inspiring glimpse into Linda’s journey with the dolphins opens a doorway into the realm of possibility. It offers an expanded view of who these endearing dolphins really are. It serves as a clear demonstration of the dolphins’ desire and ability to heal the human heart, helping us achieve higher states of peace, love, and joy.

This is a true story that takes place on land, in the sea, and in the realm of spirit … in other dimensions of reality. Linda wrote this book with the intention that each reader would co-create their own unique spiritual adventure story with the dolphins. Many have reported receiving unexpected healings and energy transmissions while reading this book.

I loved this book. Once I picked it up I was immersed in it like a dolphin in tropical waters and I highly recommend this book to Paradigm Shift readers. I found it truly inspiring. Not just because it is so lovely to read about real life and energetic encounters with dolphins, but also because this book is one about a spiritual journey.   Linda follows Spirit and Dolphin and by following her true path is an inspiration for anyone on a spiritual journey, whatever that journey may be.

Reading the book opened me up to the possibility of living in a flow with life, instead of swimming against the current. It also reminds the reader of the importance of living a joy filled life.  Reading the book will certainly open you up to the beautiful qualities of the dolphins. It helped me bring more of those qualities into my own life!

by Rosemary StephensonTelsa the Healing Dog

According to Diana Cooper this is “the amazing true story of a boxer dog who had an extraordinary healing gift. The author’s love for this beautiful animal shines from the pages as she describes how Telsa convinced even sceptics of the power of healing. Rosemary explains how her boxer opened people’s hearts and that those who were terrified of dogs changed so completely, they started to love them too. If you love dogs and Angels and are ready to open your heart then this is the book for you”.

Let me begin by telling you I am a cat person. I actually have a bit of a fear for dogs due to past circumstances. Yet I felt drawn to review this book. I have known Rosemary’s work with her crystal bowls through one of Diana Cooper’s CD’s. So I was truly interested to read a book by Rosemary. And somehow the title of the book sounded fun to me.

The book is very pleasant to the eye with a lovely violet cover and violet colored letters throughout. Initially the reader becomes acquainted with both Rosemary’s life and that of Telsa the Healing dog. Telsa is there through personal turmoil and change in Rosemary’s life. Later on in the book there are many healing stories of Telsa. She would help dogs overcome their reluctance to interact with other dogs. She helped people open their hearts. She would be the main star of the nursing home when the old people and staff would receive healing. Telsa would join in Rosemary’s healing sessions and groups to help with healing whenever possible. She also helped people with fear of dogs overcome this fear. It makes me wonder what would have happened if I would have had the opportunity of getting to know this very special dog.

Telsa is now a spirit dog continuing her healing work with Rosemary, giving wonderful angelic signs of her presence.

When you read of the amazing gentleness and sensitivity this dog had, you start wondering if she was perhaps a master in disguise. It surely helps the reader to realize that we share this world with many sentient beings. We are surrounded by healing, wisdom and magic if only we have eyes to see, and ears to hear. We may be surprised to find that it comes in the form of a boxer dog.

By: Margrit Coates & Stuart JonesConnecting With Animals

Animals are sentient beings just like we are. They have thoughts, feelings and an emotional state. Pets and horses have individual personalities too, therefore it’s important to connect with them on that basis. Connecting with animals takes place when we tune into them via our minds and hearts.

Animals communicate with us all the time, but humans often ignore this way of being or misunderstand what they are saying. When we activate our sixth sense, or intuition, then we can hear what animals say to us, and learn how to help them. Margrit Coates commissioned this relaxing album to share with your four legged friends so that they can guide you to a place of deeper awareness.

From the first rippling notes, I felt a wave of peace wash over me. Ideal for relaxing with or without your animal friend, I immediately felt more open and aware and would highly recommend this CD to anyone. Stuart Jones has definitely created a musical masterpiece here and one that provides the perfect companion to Margrit’s work in encouraging deeper communication with animals. Add to that, the leaflet with Margrit’s tips on activating your innate communication skills with our four legged friends and this is perfect gift for that special friend – two or four legged!

by Margrit CoatesAngel Pets

Animals talk to us all the time, and when we listen they can change our lives. In Angel Pets, Margrit Coates shares their incredible true stories. Meet Rusty, the lost dog whom Margrit guided home, using the psychic connection between them; Mitzi, the brave little cat who made the greatest sacrifice; Twinkle, the rabbit who saved a girl’s life; Gypsy, the sheepdog with special healing powers; Freddy’s friend, the demon cat who was really an angel in disguise, and many more wonderful animals. Through these amazing stories and helpful tips, Margrit reveals the secret of tuning into and connecting with pets at the very deepest level.

This book moved me to both tears and laughter, and also amazement that what mankind deems a lower form of life is actually more highly sensitive and aware than we are. Many know of the unconditional love given to them by animals, but this book reveals so many more levels to that love. Animals truly are angels in disguise. Margrit has filled this book with stories of the loved and the abused; giving profoundly moving evidence that animals do experience emotions and fears, and can react to our emotions and fears too. She also gives tips on how to connect with your animals so that your life together can be enriched and expanded.

Read this book and prepare to be moved and perhaps add a new dimension to your way of thinking about the animal kingdom’s place on this planet.

The Psychic Barber

by Gordon Smith

Gordon is well known around the world for giving powerful messages from people’s loved ones on the other side. Very often it is not just human friends and family that come through – the animals that have been close to us in life also continue to visit us after death. In this extraordinary book, Gordon tells their story and recounts some of the amazing experiences people have had with animals in the spirit world and in our world, such as Gordon’s own experiences with his springer spaniel Charlie.

There have been many times when Gordon is giving a reading to a person about the loss of someone very close to them, and the person cannot ‘hear’ the message – the pain has closed them down. But when an animal that they know turns up, the barriers just dissolve and they can accept the truth of the message that Gordon has given them about their loved ones.

This book is full of astounding stories that are a great testimony to the power of animals and their unconditional love for us.

Beautifully written, you may find yourself smiling at the joyful remembrances or holding back a tear at the more poignant moments, or perhaps coming to realise just how much love animals give. Whatever your reaction, this book will not leave your heart untouched. Gordon has once more given us a book to treasure and read again and again.
