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 Eva M. Sakmar-SullivanOracle Cards

Inspire your sixth sense to guide you, using the energy associated with the images on 60 beautifully illustrated oracle cards. Based on the law of attraction, you will choose the cards that are in vibrational harmony with the answers you seek or what you most need to know. Working with these cards on a daily basis will have a positive impact on your life and the people around you.

What do you need to know about love?  Spark your intuition and connection with Divine guidance and celebrate love through purity and the magnificence of self! Eva’s mission is for her artwork to serve as inspiration for personal and planetary healing, transformation and love. She is a visionary painter and environmentalist with a special love for dolphins and creatures of the sea.

I absolutely love this oracle deck. The box holds 60 cards and an accompanying booklet with guidance for the reader. The back of the cards shows a beautiful illustration of a couple entwined within a tree. Behind it are a rainbow and the galaxy and next to it the sea and two dolphins. The cards depict pictures of mystical beings such as angels, dolphins, Pegasus, unicorns, faeries and sacred places as well. Some illustrations have featured on the cover of Paradigm Shift in the past.

I received the deck at a time when relationship troubles of a family member triggered my own past hurts. As I shuffled the cards, one dropped out. I put it back, shuffled once more and picked a card. And it was the same one that had fallen out of the pile. It was the forgiveness card. I could not have picked a better one. The text in the booklet was very helpful as well, giving me just the guidance I needed.

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  Cathelijne FilippoDragon Oracle

Dragons are known to some as archetypes and to others as divine angelic beings carrying cosmic fire.

These cards will help you attune to the archetypes and wisdom of the dragons and to the wisdom within yourself.

Thirty-three cards with different dragons will give you insight into the qualities within yourself that you can further develop. They aim to support you on your spiritual path and help you work towards empowerment, wellbeing and healing. These solution focused spiritual cards will help you deal with life’s challenges in a positive way.

When I received these cards, I felt a gentle energy surround me – the soft muted colours of the box bring an immediate but subtle response. Dipping into the cards was a revelation. The illustrations are deceptively simple and the message on each card means they can be used in a number of ways; from the layouts described in the accompanying booklet, or to just drawing one when the need arises. The booklet also provides further information and a declaration for each card which can be used as an affirmation.

The first time I introduced these to friends, the response was overwhelmingly positive and they are likely to be placing their own orders very soon! I am looking forward to working with these cards more and more.

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 Stella LonglandTall Tales & Short Stories

This is a record of the journeys of a modern person into altered states of consciousness where – sometimes reluctant and often confused – the author is led through a wealth of experiences by loving guides. Seeming to move towards finding a balance between he ancient ways and the modern mind, the journey continues.

Each chapter is a record of the meditative shamanic style journey taken by the author, led by the sound of a drum. Although there is no explanation of what each journey means, there is a wealth of information within each story to lead the reader to their own conclusions. Obviously, these were very personal journeys so the meaning for the author may not be that of the reader.

Nevertheless, this is a fascinating and very descriptive record. Travel with the author through many levels of awareness and perhaps come to some new understanding of your own journey.

by Tonika RinarJourney Home

According to this book everyone is capable of time travel. We can access history as it really happened, without later exaggeration or bias. We can also heal ourselves by coming to terms with our past lives.

In this book, Tonika escorts you into other worlds and dimensions, explaining her own remarkable experiences with the paranormal, embracing past life regression, ghosts, angel and spirit guides. She also encourages you along your own journey of self-recovery and understanding. A journey in which you can discover your own connection with the Universe and the many different dimensions contained within Creation.

“Journey Home” offers a multitude of insights, and along the way looks at some of the fundamental questions asked by all cultures around the world. Where do we come from? Why are we here? What is the point of our life? What happens when we die?

When I picked this book up, the sub-title made me expect a story-line that would be chronologically followed to reveal the many experiences of the writer. Instead, the book takes you along certain themes of which the author has gained a multitude of experiences and insights over time. The book focuses on angels, archangels, our soul, negative entities and God as well as the astral realms, spirit guides, ghosts, past lives and time travel.

Some of the things she writes about are well known to those of us who have read many spiritual books over time, and they are like a reminder of knowledge already gained. Yet other things were new to me. Tonika has a different view on many historical events as well as on spiritual protection as such in that she writes, there is no such thing as protection from false energies. Tonika writes about discernment, a much needed quality in these times of immense information coming towards us.

Tonika has a special way to discern Divine Will in her life. I feel we each have our own ways for discernment. We each have our own paths to follow and though I enjoyed this book thoroughly and found it very informational, not all within it resonated with my truth and inner being.

by  Scott BlumSummer's Path

Scott Blum is the co-founder, with his wife, of the inspirational website ‘Daily Om’ (www.dailyom.com). He says in his introduction that Summer’s Path came to him just before ‘Waiting for Autumn’ was about to be released. As it is in effect a ‘prequel’ to that story, it was released first as an e-book, and was published electronically in January 2009. Now it is available as a hardback – with two additional chapters – and also as an audio book.

The story introduces us to Don, a man in a very difficult position. He has lost his job, and (being American), that means he has also lost his health insurance. When he is diagnosed with terminal cancer, he tries to find a way not to leave his wife with huge medical bills to pay, but there doesn’t seem to be a thing he can do about it. Then he meets Robert, an angel of death, who has an extraordinary proposal that just might save his life. The problem is, he has to leave his wonderful wife, fake his own death, and head off into the wilderness with only Robert for company – or is it the other way round?

As the cover blurb states: ‘Robert takes Don through an astounding meditation of life and death and reveals various healing and spiritual concepts, including walk-ins, animal communication, embodiment, and soul destiny. On this magical journey of self-realisation, Don discovers that it’s never too late to learn profound life lessons about ourselves and our loved ones.’

As an avid reader of spiritual novels, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Depending on what you already know, you may find it anything from highly instructive to deeply confirmatory, but wherever you are on your spiritual path, you will find yourself warming to Don and his angel companion, and rooting for him all the way. I can’t wait to get my teeth into Waiting for Autumn!
