Triumph Over Trauma

In Triumph Over Trauma: Psychedelic Medicines Are Helping People Heal Their Trauma, Change Their Lives, and Grow Their Spirituality, the reader is educated about psychedelics, shown how to use them, and taught about facts that are not shared in schools and on the media. Randall S. Hansen uses 23 stories to demonstrate to readers the positive impact psychedelics have on humans and why more people need to be open-minded about them.

Psychedelics are recognized to be hallucinogenic drugs that sometimes alter one’s perception and cognitive processes. In this book, Randall S. Hansen, throws light on the basics of psychedelics, answering frequently asked questions, and stating unknown facts. One of the things I love about how Randall S. Hansen started his book is the Matt Zemon quote he shared. The quote reads, ‘I am convinced that psychedelics are not a panacea, but they can play a role in healing and connection, both for the people that choose to use them and for those that do not.’ This quote is inspiring, and it acknowledges the healing elements of psychedelics.

Triumph Over Trauma is an eye-opening read. The author starts from the basics, discussing the best psychedelic medicines for newbies, how to source them, positive effects, the different kinds of psychedelics, and even the dangers. Randall S. Hansen is candid in his writing and does not write about fantasies or unproven theories. This book is a great read and incredibly excellent for anyone dealing with trauma. Whether it is trauma from work, home, childhood, or any mental condition, Randall S. Hansen, in detail, writes about how psychedelics can help you.

This book is divided into four parts. Part one of the book is an introduction for those unfamiliar with psychedelics. The second part of the book is my favorite. In this part, the author writes about experiences with 23 people. These are real stories told, and one can feel the healing the people in the stories share. The positivity radiated through these stories is marvelous. I appreciate that their stories were not too long but short enough to inspire and radiate the positivity readers that are hurt and those that have been dealing with past traumas need. I mostly enjoyed the stories and transformation journeys of Ryan, Todd, Charles, Hunt, Alexandra, and Jessica. Part three is on microdosing while the last part has the author summarize, and mention other vital information not discussed in the book.

Randall S. Hansen’s book is the ideal for your healing, wellness and positive transformation. After reading this book, you get a new perspective of psychedelics and feel refreshed. I recommend this book to readers that are struggling with traumas, those seeking treatment, and readers that are curious about psychedelics.

The Afterlife Experience

Bud Megargee, in his enlightening book, helps readers reflect on life, and ponder about their choices and their connections with nature. His book The Afterlife Experience: How Our Association with Nature’s Elements Shape Our Outcome contains the information you need to help you understand life and the outer world. I appreciate Bud Megargee’s method of writing as he makes the reader feel like they are part of the conversation. The author introduces readers to his book with an Albert Einstein quote. ‘Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.’ In the introduction, the author gives the reader a hint of what he will discuss and also shares a bit about his persona.

The reader is then introduced to Laz, the author’s soul guide, whose words of wisdom stick throughout the book. In The Afterlife Experience, we follow a conversation between Laz and Bud. The two converse about an array of topics that touch on life, energies, and souls. I enjoyed the conversation not just because of the wording but because of the open-mindedness between the two. Reading about personal tales and encounters was not only fascinating but also informative. This is the book you need to have if you want to have a better understanding of the meaning of life and beyond. Simple conversations answer complex questions that one may have about soul ties, life, and the afterlife.

I like that as much as the discussion in the book is about life, the author also incorporated interrelated topics. Reading about spirituality, energies, Buddhism, and life’s complexities was eye-opening and interesting.  Laz and Bud have appealing minds and an exceptional way of thinking that will make you engrossed in the diverse subjects being discussed. It is an easy read that has a great flow of conversation. I applaud the author for the smooth change of subjects in every chapter. Bud Megargee understands the art of integrating topics and how to move from one theme to another without losing the reader.

At the end of the reading, readers will better comprehend certain moments of their life and life in general. Readers will also be enlightened on spirituality, the afterlife, and how components of air, fire, earth, and are tied to a soul. The reader also learns the connection between particular traditions and philosophies. Bud Megargee’s fascinating use of analogies and shrewd sayings cannot go unmentioned. The analogies in the book made the reading more exciting and more fun.

Dark Night of the Soul

If you are experiencing grief, heartbreak, or life-changing moments, then Dark Night of the Soul by Trinity Royal is the inspirational book to guide you through your strife. This educational book is the red pill to get out of a matrix of suffering and repetition of sabotage and terrible habits in life. The author takes readers into a rabbit hole of self-examination and querying their soul on what it requires and the reason behind any suffering. It goes through the stages of stage metamorphosis, which is quite a fascinating cycle.

One of the book’s most controversial topics is that there will be suffering during the darkest night of the soul. However, this suffering reshapes a person’s character into a shiny diamond. The book illustrates the reasons for soul searching, why we suffer from depression, what to do during this process, and the possible reason for any unexpected suffering. The book also demonstrates some practical and effective healing techniques.

This is a book I would recommend for anyone undergoing any soul searching, depression, or stuck in a ‘rut’ (which, given the last couple of years, I feel like we all are in some sort of trouble here). I feel that this book can be appreciated by people who are going through a tough time in life and are ready for a change. If one is not open to the ideas in the book, they may find it repetitive and a bit ‘new age’. If you are looking for your soul’s purpose, I will leave you with the words, “Diamond is a piece of coal that has been subjected to extreme pressure and temperature.” I hope you find the healing, love, and peace that this book desperately aims for.

Cassandra and the Crystal Cave

Young Cassandra struggles to find her place in the universe a girl on the cusp of womanhood. Considered a misfit, nature-lover Cass often finds herself at odds with her own family about caring for the natural world and the many creatures that inhabit it. But when a grim tragedy strikes, Cassandra is pulled into yet another world. It is in this new world she discovers her hidden powers at the brink of an infinite universe in need of her help. Finding numerous friends and allies, Cassandra must learn to conquer her hidden doubts and rise above the tragedy in order to heal a broken world with the most powerful force in creation.

Cassandra and the Crystal Cave by author Deborah Shining Star is a rich story about overcoming the tragedies of life and discovering each person’s special purpose in our vast, endless universe. Cassandra, finding herself between worlds, encounters many trials and heart-wrenching tragedies in both her “normal” life and the world of the fantastical. Seldom have I encountered a book that weaves together the magical and mundane worlds so skillfully, spinning a complex narrative that pulls the reader into a place where anything is possible. Cassandra fights to understand herself, her family, and the meaning of sacrifice as she learns from many wise elders such as Grandmother Shining Stars. Cassandra encounters mythical beings far and wide, from unicorns to star beings from another galaxy. And in Cassandra’s fabulous journeys, the common themes of love, forgiveness, healing, and hope are present on every page of this beautifully crafted tale. At the end of it, all, balance, harmony, and understanding of our place in the universe may be the key to everything.

Cassandra and the Crystal Cave is an excellent coming-of-age fantasy adventure. This book wraps up nicely and is good as a stand-alone adventure but leaves plenty of potential for other stories in the future. Perfect for all those who love a beautiful fantasy world where not even the sky is the limit.

Ten To Life

In this book, Ten to Life: Delirium Tales of a Covid-19 Survivor, author Mike Joyner contracts COVID-19 and recounts his days in the ICU during the pandemic. Joyner was sedated for 18 days, experiencing multiple delirious dreams; some quite terrifying, some strange, and some fairly light-hearted and fun. Joyner’s intention in writing this book is to give comfort and hope to the people infected by this traumatic pandemic, to know that we are not alone in this struggle and will face the future together.

This is a difficult book to review emotionally and in the technical sense. This book is entirely based on the author’s experiences and dreams, which does not leave much room for a critique of the book’s contents. Was this book captivating and interesting? Absolutely. Were the book’s grammar and punctuation impeccable? Undeniably so. Joyner has done an amazing job writing this book. There is not a single flaw I could point out or a comment I could make to suggest improvements.

This book has a sort of Alice in Wonderland kind of feeling. The author takes us down one rabbit hole after another, into dream after dream, and as time becomes unpredictable like most dreams, things slowly stop making sense. A very relatable feeling, however, unlike waking up once or twice from one dream after another, the author experienced this over and over for 18 days. A terrifying thought.

But not only is the author trapped in their own head, but they are being hunted in their dreams. After a misunderstanding with a man named Jesse, the author is relentlessly pursued in his own mind by guns for hire. It’s a disturbing thought, especially compared to how many times Joyner “died” in his dreams, but I would hate to think that every time the author “died,” this could have possibly meant the author had needed to be resuscitated in the waking world.

I know very little about treating Covid, but from what I understand, patients need to be closely monitored while sedated in case liquid pools in the lungs. In addition, patients are rotated constantly to prevent liquid from pooling and drowning patients in their sleep. Still, with staffing shortages and the multiple people needed to flip a person over, there are higher chances of a code blue.

This would also explain why the doctors in Joyner’s dream warned him to be more careful and not “die” again. Resuscitating a person does a lot of damage to the body, and there are only so times a person can be resuscitated, only so much trauma the body can take. This book is a testament to the trauma and pain Covid inflicts on a person. I’m sorry to hear about what Joyner has been through, but I’m glad something beautiful could come out of it. This book was immaculately written and was a captivating read.

A Heart Full of Joy

A Heart Full of Joy contains 365 daily perceptions on life, the world, the universe, or whatever divine being you resonate with. Each day includes a new mantra to help you take on the day. Each reflection will make you think of how you can make a change in this world and helps others around you. We all have the power to take care of problems that may prevent us from experiencing joy and happiness. Financial debts, mistreatment, lack of job satisfaction, and inner conflict are just a few examples. Author Michele L. Sayre inspires us to live our lives differently by taking charge of our destiny, addressing our fears, and embracing our unique individuality.

Sayre’s writing style is not only beautiful, it is also inspiring. The forward of this book explains how while there are references to “God” in parts, it is not meant to be exclusive to any one religion or belief. The concepts and ideas apply to everyone no matter where they fall in the spiritual realm. This allows this spiritual book to be a guide to everyone and not just to those that follow organized regions.

The concept for this thought-provoking book is to be read as a daily activity at the start of one’s day to get a dose of positivity and to prepare mentally for what the day holds. My favorite section is where readers learn that it’s ok to do nothing for an entire day. The author helped me to realize that we need to take moments to relax and rejuvenate, even if it is little moments here and there.

I also enjoyed the section “Our Gift of Health”, in which the author brings to readers’ attention that they should live each day with gratitude and a positive attitude. Part of living a life of gratitude is to care for one own body. Self-care is a key element in developing a positive and gracious attitude. Another area that the author reminds readers to pay attention to is the ability to take a moment and step back in order to open their hearts to others and show kindness.

We tend to lose sight of many things in our busy lives, like the importance of self-care, showing kindness to those around us, and expressing gratitude. Michele reminds us through the use of the daily prompts of all the different things we have at our disposal to help us work on understanding ourselves and on the importance of spreading positivity to others.

A Heart Full of Joy is the kind of work that will leave readers better than they were before reading it. At one point or another, everyone needs to take some time for personal growth. This self-help book is not meant to be read in one sitting but rather is beneficial to carry with oneself and be read daily for reflection. Life is short, and this stunning book encourages readers to make the best of it.
