A couple of months ago, I came across Shaman Elizabeth Herrera‘s book ‘Shaman Stone Soup’ in an Amazon Kindle store promotion. Something drew me to download the book but I did not get around to reading it until a few weeks ago.
The book is a self-published collection of twenty personal stories by the author on her shamanic healing experiences and each story concludes with a lovely spirit message. I began reading the stories, one at a time, during a time when I was feeling quite depressed. As I concluded each story, I felt myself open to moving out of my negative frame of mind. It provided me the space to re-open my mind to spiritual reading and I was able to watch the documentary on the life of Buddha.
I wish to share in this post two of the messages in the book that drew me the most:
“We all have our own road to follow. We do not want to be led or pushed. Rather, we want to find the truth at our own pace. He comes with an open mind that has not yet been ready to accept the things you say. So be it. Each lifetime is filled with the lessons we need to learn. Nothing more, nothing less.” – Spirit message in the first healing story in the book, Different perspectives.
“Pain exists only in the mind. Whether an event is real or not doesn’t matter, only that the mind believes it is. Suffering can be suspended by achieving new beliefs and perspectives. We see what we want to see, and feel what we want to feel. Never doubt that the life you lead is the life you want.” – Spirit message in the healing story, Karmic Ties.
Whether or not one believes in a spiritual force, the healing stories in this book each have a message that reach out to the reader.
