Spiritual Growth: Being Your Higher Self (Sanaya Roman) (Paperback)

Review

“A breakthrough for tomorrow’s teachers, healers, and leaders who want to be their higher selves now.” — Catalyst”The Earth Life Series is a trilogy of books that I must confess I did not read in their proper order. I didn’t discover the series until I received the proof copy of Spiritual Growth – the last book in the series – and read from cover to cover. Unlike some channels whose messages seem to need hours of decoding, Orin’s language is crystal clear. For an example, see page 32 of the March/April 1989 issue of Body, Mind, & Spirit. I then went on to read the first two books in the series, Living with Joy and Personal Power Through Awareness. Surprisingly there is no duplication of information. Orin’s ideas remain clear, concise and eminently practical. An astonishing array of life situations are exposed and opened to light with a compassionate understanding of the human condition. Orin’s suggestions are laced with examples and stories that help the reader see how they work. Each chapter is followed by worksheets and meditations so the lessons can be immediately put into practice. The meditations help to open pathways for the teachings to be absorbed. The teachings, in turn, augment the meditation experience so together they work to bring about change. I found that the writing always seemed new, which to me, is a sure sign of spiritual depth. When I reread sections weeks later they seemed quite different. Of course, they were the same; it was I who had changed. Some teachings that had seemed difficult were now obvious and I realized how powerful many of the exercises had been. It is not that the information was new, only that it had been presented with a simplicity that allowed it to be grasped at many different levels. It is this very simplicity combined with unerring guidance to the highest good that make the Earth Life Series a powerful light along whichever path of growth you choose.” (Body Mind Spirit magazine, October 1989) “Spiritual Growth is a way of looking at life, of getting in touch with what Roman calls your higher self. This higher self is within us all, Roman believes, waiting to be tapped with some practice. Roman shows us how. This is a positive book, one that takes the golden rule and expands it way beyond personal relationships. Spiritual Growth seeks to strip us of blinders, to see good even in those we don’t like, to find love within us, to use the power of enveloping ourselves in light and then transmitting that light out to someone we want to reach. It’s a spiritual book, but not kooky in the sense that it asks us to go into a lotus position or climb some mountain to find nirvana. Roman is a practical spiritualist, saying to the reader to stop in the middle of a trying day and take a deep breath, to reach inside to find a direction. The mind is a wonderful storehouse of energy, Roman believes, just waiting to be unleashed for our personal benefit. But Roman doesn’t believe that we should just hold all of this spirituality inside. Looking outward to find good in everything that we do, Roman writes, is the way to manifest positive beliefs that heighten your outlook on life.”(The Tribune, Colorado Press) — ReviewsThere is a danger today in the “new-age” milieu whereby psychism is mistaken for spirituality and astral glamour is misconstrued as inner development. In the 1970s the metaphysically disenchanted in the West enthroned the Eastern gurus as pillars of high spirituality; but in the 1980s, this habit of adulation shifted to disincarnate light beings. At least the gurus were personally present to scold disciples at moments of spiritual aberration. This isn’t possible in today’s floriation of channeled guides sans credentials, and some well-intentioned neophytes might find themselves routed unhappily into the developmental ditch from unreliable texts. In many respects Spiritual Growth is an instructive exemplar of both this inherent danger and the uplifting message of light that most channeled works strive to impart. It is the fifth in a series by California channel Roman-a warm, friendly, simple dictation on die elementary principles of personal development presented by a disincamate spirit named Orin. The intentions are laudable; namely, to move readers into a participation in the higher dimensional expressions of the Self. This is facilitated through advice, examples, and visualizations. Generally, the text, which is entirely Orin’s, moves the reader forward pleasantly into an arena of light, hope, and positive attitudes. — From Independent Publisher

Once in a decade comes a book that can affect people at the very core of their experience. A contemporary masterpiece in the tradition of the world’s great spiritual writings, Spiritual Growth is such a book. It contains the essence of the contemporary spiritual path, embodying joy, gr (more…)


Address of Aug. 15, 1999: Spiritual White Light

by archangel Michael

Greetings, my dear friends! Greetings from the spirit world, from the realms of spirit guides and angels! As you proceed on your path, the importance of Love and Light needs to be realized. This realization is going beyond recognition, although recognizing the meaning and role of the spiritual white light is the first step, but now is the time to take the second step, and realize this recognition. What I am trying to bring across today is, that you need to learn to actually accept this light and let it flow through your heart. You have a seed of the divine light in your heart, learn to use this spark every day, let it shine out, and enlighten yourself and your surroundings. You will see that this is more than imagining some kind of light, but this spiritual white light has special qualities which are equivalent to unconditional love. The more you work with the white light from your heart chakra, the more you will experience unconditional love, and learn to express this wonderful energy which is the key lesson for any human on earth who is striving for spiritual development and self-realization. Learn to use the white light from your heart every day, and in more and more situations of your life. It is very easy to forget about the white light, but it is just the more important to learn to remember it and use it. Whenever you get upset about something, or even angry or frightened, this is the moment you most need the white light. But even in the little moments which are less negative, you can apply this energy and begin to show and express unconditional love. Any task, any problem, any activity during your day or night, you can apply this white light and turn any physical event of your life into a spiritual exercise, which brings you further on your path. Of course, this should not lead to reducing your concentration in critical situations, e.g. when driving a motor vehicle, but there are many situations where this could be applied, when thought about. This is what I want to bring closer to you, to remember the spiritual white light during your physical life, it is not simply an exercise for spirituality, as both worlds are much closer than you can imagine, and intertwined. This connection allows you to bring unconditional love into your own life and that of those around you through spiritual light work. May you recognize the white light, and may you realize it in your own life, by learning to use it every day, more and more often. Greetings to you, my dear friends! Amen. Amen. Amen.
