Soul Contracts – Danielle MacKinnon

The book “Soul Contracts” by Danielle MacKinnon is about recognising and letting go of soul blockages that keep us trapped in fears, doubts, negative emotions and beliefs. These blockages may have been inherited from our ancestors or brought with us from past lives or they are from this life time.

Danielle MacKinnon calls those blockages “mental seeds” and “soul contracts”. Mental seeds are deeply routed negative beliefs. Soul contracts develop as a result of those beliefs when we don’t face the negative emotions, but push them aside instead.

The book explains in 5 steps how we can recognise those seeds and soul contracts and their effects in our own life and how we can remove them from our energetic system. Danielle MacKinnon uses examples of her own clients to describe the effect of mental seeds and soul contracts in peoples lives and also to describe how those 5 steps to recognise and remove them lead to changes.

This isn’t a fast fix method. I have worked several weeks with this book and have found it to be very helpful. I could recognise and let go of several patterns and blockages from past lives. But the different steps take some time to take effect.

The book contains some interesting specialties that I now use daily and can really recommend. It includes working with your spiritual helpers.

One of those things is called “Six Invocations of Light” and is best done daily for at least 40 days in a row. By doing that you only invite beings and experiences of 100 percent divine light into your life.

The second one is a method of energetic clearing with which you can remove everything from your life and from yourself that does not match 100 percent divine light. Very effective. I use it daily and recommend it.

The third one is a method to be filled with 100 percent divine light by your spiritual helpers which I also use daily now. Very effective and helpful.

Because of those practises the book “Soul Contracts” by Danielle MacKinnon has become a workbook for me that I have with me every day and use every day. It looks like that in the meantime which hardly ever happens with any book I read normally. I can really recommend it.

Thank and grow rich – Pam Grout

“Thank and grow rich” by Pam Grout is a must read. I don’t remember ever having said about a book “You have to read this”. In this case I do. You have to read this.

I love this book. I’ve made it my daily companion during the past weeks and am now reading it for the second time. It shifts your focus away from everything that doesn’t work towards all the things that do work, daily, for 4 weeks.

The book guides us to come into the frequency of gratitude and joy and stay there, every day. There is an introductory part in which Pam Grout explains the thinking errors of our time, i.e. that there is lack and what happens when we tune into the endless possibilities of the universe.

At the beginning and at the end of the book there is a Thank and grow rich income statement where you can evaluate yourself before and after reading the book. This isn’t about gaining financial riches, but about spiritual, social, creative capital and more. What is meant by everyone of them is explained in detail and with examples.

Then comes the big fun part of the book with 27 party games, one for each day. Pam Grout doesn’t like “exercises”. That sounds too serious for her. She prefers party games. 😄 Gratitude is supposed to be fun and guide us into the frequency of joy.

And that’s why every chapter starts with a party game where at first the game is being described, telling you what to do during this day. Then comes the “Party Gift”, which is often an explanation about what happens when you play the game and additional real stories. And then there is the “Dessert”, which are often real life stories from real people that show what gratitude can do in your life.

For me “Thank and grow rich” by Pam Grout is simply awesome. It helps me enormously at the moment to see 3 things every day that I am grateful for. That’s one exercise at the beginning of the book.

I have just accepted a 40 hour job to heal my finances and be financially self-sustaining. In this job I am in daily contact with mass consumerism and the respective energies and I have less time for my spiritual business. So I currently need something that helps me see the good in my job and in my life. This book does exactly that.

It reminds me every morning to look for things that I am grateful for. And they need to be different every day. I intend to continue doing this, 27 days, again and again. I can only recommend it.

I Can See Clearly Now – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

“I Can See Clearly Now” by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer is a fascinating book that I have read for the second time in the past weeks following Wayne’s passing. It spans his whole life from 1,5 years of age until his early 70’s. And right in the first chapter it becomes clear to the reader that there is something in this little boy Wayne that’s different from other people. He sees opportunities for fun where others feel frustrated. He doesn’t know sadness and instead makes everyone laugh. The way people know him as a speaker onstage – in this book he shows that he has always been like that, that he was born like that.

From a very early age, due to being put in orphanages, he takes care of himself and follows his own interests. And already as a child he also takes a stand for weaker children that are being bothered by others. All these traits that he showed as the famous author and speaker he was, he already possessed and showed as a child. I found this absolutely fascinating to realise.

The book contains 58 chapters and each chapter is divided into two parts. In the first part he tells a story from the past. In the second part he analyses what happened back then from his current point of awareness. I have never before read a book like that and I love it. Several times while reading it prompted me to look back at my own life and major turning points. In his Afterword Wayne encourages the reader to do just that.

Wayne goes through his life chronologically and writes about the major steps and turning points in his life. His childhood, living in orphanages, school time, university, his life as a professor and later as an author. Being a father, why he wrote which book, what he did to promote them. The most fascinating thing for me are his internal development processes that he writes about in detail. From self-reliance and self-actualization at the beginning of his life to spirituality and God-realization at the end of his life. This is a journey worth reading.

I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did.

The Importance of Being Extraordinary – Dr. Wayne Dyer & Eckhart Tolle

I would like to introduce you to the dialogue “The Importance of Being Extraordinary” between Dr. Wayne W. Dyer and Eckhart Tolle that has actually become very famous already. So you might already know it. But anyway. I find it deeply inspiring and sometimes it’s just fun.

It all revolves around the topics of being, paying attention, present moment awareness, consciousness. Different terms meaning the same thing. What I find most interesting about it is that two people exchange their views on basically the same topic, but the words they are using and the way they explain it, are very different. Sometimes they even tell the same story in different ways. I find that fascinating. Eckhart Tolle even addresses that at some point and says that he is using different words for one thing, because different words speak to different people.

Eckhart Tolle speaks about Being vs. Doing and how both are part of this universe and part of our life. The universe wants to create (Doing) and also wants to know, experience itself through us (Being). The challenge for us is to be aware of who we really are and do, create, but without loosing ourselves in the process.

Wayne Dyer says “You can be an extraordinary being and still have the ordinary in you.” With ordinary he means paying taxes, filling out forms etc. But he also clearly says that he wants us to be extraordinary. He wants us to not just be people who fill out forms and follow rules but people who look beyond that, people who know their soul and it’s wish to ever expand. He clearly points to “The Importance of Being Extraordinary”.

Eckhart Tolle asks the audience “Can you sense the infinity of your being now in this moment?” Which means not to derive your identity from your mind, i.e. the stories in your head, which is what usually happens. “Can you sense that within you there is an unconditioned consciousness, deep aliveness that has nothing to do with your history?”

Eckhart Tolle further explains that many people identify either with their body or with their psychological self-image (thoughts, ideas). Those two are permanently changing. They are impermanent. And neither of them is who we truly are. Wayne Dyer talks about Muktananda being asked “What is real?” He answers: “That is real which never changes.”

The funniest part of the whole dialogue for me is always (I have listened to it several times) when they talk about the Watkins’ list of the 100 Most Spiritually Influential Living People on which by the time of the talk Wayne Dyer is No. 3 and Eckhart Tolle No. 1. They actually use it as an example of showing how the ego deals with that and how the pure consciousness doesn’t give any meaning to such thing. It’s something to laugh about and to learn with.

If you would like to listen to this dialogue, there are three possibilities. There is a DVD, a CD set or an audio download.
