BelindaGrace on the practice of clairvoyance

You Are Clairvoyant: Simple Ways to Develop Your Psychic Gifts
by BelindaGrace

paperback, 222 pages

Reading BelindaGrace's You Are Clairvoyant is like listening to a kind, plain-spoken counselor. This teacher exudes sincerity and compassion, and this is not a showy book nor a typical New Age manual. It does not feel derivative like so many in this genre. In fact, for some readers, this introduction to clairvoyance might seem a bit tame and too simple to be powerful. But I don't think BelindaGrace intends it for readers who need psychic development guides to be fancy, esoteric and overly complex. She leaves the razzle dazzle strictly between you and whatever will come to your imagination, and that's all to the good.

As you will learn, imagination is the key:
Your imagination is a very valuable tool. Use it, exercise it, treasure and respect it because it is your vital link to the beauty and magic of all the non-physical levels of life. (p. 26)
I greatly appreciate her linkage of imagination in creative ability with imagination in psychic development and her noting that suppression of imagination--"it has no monetary value" to mainstream society--stunts children in so many ways. If you have ever suspected that there's more to you than you've allowed yourself (or been allowed) to express, this book can help.

If you're reading this blog, you're likely quite familiar with many of the topics BelindaGrace addresses--including chakras, visualization, past lives and meditation. However, you might enjoy passing this book along to someone who, new to this type of worldview and practice, could benefit from gentle encouragement in the act of "meeting the Universe half-way."
