The Magic of Mindfulness

The Magic of Mindfulness (Life Magic Series Book 1) by [K P Weaver]

What happens when we start to believe in magic? Do we fall prey to fantasy and make believe? Or are we able to create something from that pure energy of imaginative knowing? These are the very questions that The Magic of Mindfulness is trying to answer. Based off of real experience and years of dedication, the author, Karen McDermott, shows us what happens if we open our minds to the idea of possibility. We’ve often heard the word “manifest” thrown about as a way to attract what we desire to ourselves. That if we simply wish it, it can come into being. The truth however is a bit more complicated. Yes, we can manifest things into being but it is a matter of dedication. Whether we actually believe in its power makes all the difference.

When I started The Magic of Mindfulness, I have to admit I was a bit skeptical. However, the more I thought about it and the more I read, the more it started to make sense. People like to idealize “hustle” culture and that if we want something, it has to cost us everything we have. After reading this book, I have come to believe that it does not necessarily have to be true. Most people try to limit their thinking by saying that if only they had enough they could buy so and so. If we redirected our thinking to simply accepting that our goals will come, we save energy that can be sent out into doing the very thing we achieve to do. Karen Weaver does a fantastic job of explaining this idea and illustrating it in her well crafted book. Everything about this book is intentional, even down to the book cover. At first I thought, ‘oh what a neat looking cover’, but as explained in the books introduction the image represents something much greater.

While the book is filled with lots of intellectually invigorating content, there were moments where I felt like somethings were repeated. But this is a minor issue in a book that is replete with compelling and potentially life changing information that will enable you to reach your highest self.

The Magic of Mindfulness is overflowing with love and kindness. You can feel it in all of Karen’s words. In this potent personal development book readers will discover the power of intention and will be provided with practical guidance, including exercises and a notes section, that they can use to reach their highest potential.

25 Perfect Days

25 Perfect Days Plus 5 More5 StarsThis isn’t your father’s sci-fi novel. Mark Tullius’ 25 Perfect Days Plus 5 More is an eerie look at a future world of pain, control and agony. The characters have so much to lose and very little to gain. It’s a fantastic, gripping tale that betrays a terrifying glimpse at a future where religion meets Big Brother and all the destruction that comes from the union. For reasons not fully explained the earth is deteriorating. Food is scare, water is poisoned and the people are frightened. Due to the extremist nature of the men at the head of the church of The Way and their relationship with politics tiny laws begin to be passed here and there that seem harmless at first. But these are just a smokescreen for the madness that follows and threatens to swallow up and distort humanity as we know it today.

Compiled in an easy-to-read format of short stories which are all intertwined 25 Perfect Days Plus 5 More takes the reader on a journey through forty years. We watch as characters age, fall in their battle, procreate and attempt to carry on the fight. Seemingly innocent and small interactions are expanded upon as the years tick by and the tiny threads that bind all the characters together are strong. The cast of this adventure is large and while there is a appendix at the end of the book which identifies each one and key points of their story, it’s recommended not to look at it until you read the entire book for the first time. There are spoilers in that explanation and it’s thrilling to read it afterwards and find out if how you thought you organized things in your head match the path Tullius paved.

Tullius times each story perfectly. They’re packed with plenty of action and none of them feel too short or too long. Just enough information is given in each piece to keep the reader hooked and dying to know more. In this twisted world which shares some alarming similarities to the world we currently live in it’s hard to separate some friends from foes. Children are stripped of all their innocence, friends and family are pitted against each other and those who try to put up even a tiny amount of resistance are viciously brutalized.

The fabric of the world the reader will find themselves in is wonderfully woven. Each character that has a name is a piece of the overall puzzle, no matter how small it may seem at the time. The execution of such an intense and intricate story line without missing a beat or faltering on obscure facts shows the depth of Tullius’ writing skills.

In this embattled world where we’re left wondering what exactly happened in Canada, as a reader you can’t help but feel agony over the situations the characters find themselves in. There is no discrimination; the poor and the wealthy are all victims of this post-apocalyptic world where God has abandoned all designs.
