Review: Your Magnificent Self

Barbara Franken has given me a chance to read her new book, Your Magnificent Self:  A Journey to Freedom.  There are still a few dates open to put up a review or interview Barbara; see here.

Filled with Barbara’s “intuitive paintings”, which are quite fun, the book is Barbara’s journey through meeting nine spirit guides, each of whom worked with her on deepening her understanding about a different area of life.

From Magdalena’s teachings about self love to Potent’s lessons about achieving potential, each tale describes a journey to understanding a different aspect of life on earth.  Many tales contain a guided-meditation-like journey you could use as a blueprint for guiding yourself to discover your inner knowledge about each subject.

Her vivid sense of the spirit guides as beings who walk beside her and impart their teachings is inspiring. Meditations with spirit guides have been around a long time and I have my own set of guides but I’ve not experienced them as having specific areas of teaching nor have I “seen” them as beings I could describe or draw.  I enjoyed following along as Barbara met each one and learned the lessons each came to teach.

For anyone who’s worked with Shakti Gawain’s Creative Visualization practices or with Abraham Hicks and the Law of Attraction or The Secret, Barbara’s journey is a nice addition in describing the state of healing and vibrational tone at which it is possible to create the life you choose.

An enjoyable journey.

  1. It sounds interesting. I’ve been working with guides for more than 30 years, and yes, I have a clear visual image of some of them. Sometimes the veil lifts, either audibly or visually.

  2. Thank you so much leigh for reading and enjoying my extra-ordinary journey and what a great description you write to help others understand the creative expression we all indeed hold within… but dare we allow ourselves to unleash the magic we carry with us… and create our life as we desire in each moment. IAM honoured to be mentioned among the other popular writers. Here is to more of us choosing to go beyond our mind and physical reality and getting to know the magnificent consciousness that we each are and all life is. Love to you Leigh, Barbara
    p.s. since moving to my own wordpress site, there doesn’t seem to be a reblog button… So I’ll have to copy a little and put in a link to send people back to your magnificent post…

Please add your thoughts; love a good discussion!
