I Thought It Was Just Me by Brené Brown

Ever felt ashamed of something you might have experienced, said or done in your life? Or do you have a shame story that keeps playing on loop in your head?

Please pick up a copy of this book.

It demystifies shame. It makes shame a very human emotion. The stories and sharing in this book will make you feel like you are not alone in this world. It reminds us that all of us have our own shame stories. And most importantly, it shows us the way to move beyond shame, especially the crippling kind that can keep us locked in our own inner box of criticism, darkness and loneliness.


With others

Empathy and the connection it creates

Have you ever tried to share something personal with someone and they seemed to make you feel as though you are being ungrateful for the good things in your life? They try to point out the positive things about the situation instead of addressing the pain or hurt that you are going through? I have been there and I know how it feels.

Brené Brown has the best term to describe this. Silver-lining your situation. I have done this to others before too. Learning to connect with others is also about recognising that we are all humans and are very much capable of disconnecting with someone who is trying to create a genuine connection with us. This video is a great reminder even for those of us who are always trying to reach out, show up and create real connection with others. ❤

The Light Between Us by Laura Lynne Jackson

What is my mission in life?

What happens when I die?

Are psychic gifts real?

Is it something to be afraid of?

What does it feel like to be a psychic?

Are my loved ones who have crossed over doing fine?

How are they feeling?

If you have asked yourself any of the questions above, this book would be a great read for you.

This book is a reminder that we are not just connected to one another on this physical plane, we are also connected to each other across dimensions, space and time. Our bodies give way with time, but our soul never dies. It helps us to understand that the other side is not a scary place, it is a place of pure love, where learning and soul reflections occur.

The truth is, we will never experience the afterlife fully until we cross over ourselves, but a belief in a peaceful and loving afterlife can take away the fear of death and dying.

In the depth of grief and heartache, it can bring some relief to know that your loved ones are never truly gone, that they are always around you but just in a different form. It is also very comforting to know that you can talk to your loved ones at any time and they are always able to hear your thoughts and words in a way that was not possible before, when they were in their physical bodies.

Though it will never be the same, and the waves of grief will keep crashing on your shores, it can be very comforting to know that we can now initiate an even deeper connection with our transitioned loved one as only one of us is bound by the limitations of the human body now.

If you have had psychic experiences or just a very innate intuitive knowing that cannot be explained, this book might bring some reassurance to you. 🙂
