Publishers Weekly
There was a time when young people were routinely taught how to develop their intuitive and spiritual powers, according to Tallard Johnson, a psychotherapist and mentor of young teens. This "ability to access inner wisdom" was once considered an essential part of an adolescent's schooling. Nowadays, such training seems to have fallen by the wayside. Ironically, with young people facing so many pressures and risks in modern Western culture, a mandatory course in developing a healthy inner guidance system is needed more than ever. Thankfully, Tallard Johnson is helping to fill the void. Her primary goal is to help teenagers listen to their true feelings, learn to read their own energy and become more adept at living a life that is congruent with their inner wisdom (aka intuition). It's hard to find fault with her ambitions or delivery. Drawing from an eclectic stew of wisdom (such as the Sufi tradition of breathing, the yoga Chakra system, Tibetan Buddhism and the I Ching), Tallard Johnson offers an excellent primer on connecting with the inner spirit. Designed like a workbook, every chapter includes compelling testimonials, folk tales, ancient teachings, practical exercises and journaling assignments. Tallard Johnson covers many core concerns of teenagers-how to become an individual, develop self-loving beliefs, recognize and overcome substance and emotional abuse, make decisions from the higher self, create healthy relationships and find a safe spiritual teacher. Don't be turned off by the seemingly trite title-this is a book of merit and depth. (Feb.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
VOYA
For teens exploring both religious and mystical sources of self-awareness, this book provides an introduction to many beliefs and to how yoga, crystals, spirals, and secret boxes can be used to answer life's tough questions by looking inside. The chapters explore "anything is possible" concepts through a variety of approaches and tools such as creating a spiral walk, consulting a pendulum, and using a manifestation bowl. For each new tool or exercise, the psychotherapist author details origins, stories, and histories of the practice as well as at least one personal account from a teen. From Julia, who kept a secret box in a physically abusive household, to Rachel, who used the affirmations of the fourth chakra to "shed a lot of old skin," these accounts make the practices real to a teen unfamiliar with them. There is a resource list for further exploration including stores, healing centers, and organizations. With a recommended call number of 131 (DDC), this book is much more about personal spirituality than religion, although prayer is introduced as a method of seeking answers and the religious origins of some practices are detailed. The approach of this work is more along the lines of a Cheyenne saying in the book, "Our first teacher is our own heart." VOYA Codes: 3Q 4P S (Readable without serious defects; Broad general YA appeal; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12). 2003, Bindu Books, 248p.; Index. Illus. Biblio. Further Reading. Appendix., Trade pb. Ages 15 to 18.

Children's Literature
This New Age teen self-help book draws on wisdom from many religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, the beliefs of Native Americans, with a nod to Christianity. Various spiritual exercises are explained, such as the seven chakras of Hinduism, the spiral path, chanting, and journaling. Getting in touch with one's inner psyche through meditation is encouraged as teens confront issues of independence, a path in life, and choosing a life partner. Interviews with teenagers and their stories add interest. The pages have Native American-like decorations, and sidebars of pithy sayings from many quarters—from Sufi leaders to Eleanor Roosevelt. The writer is a Buddhist. Other New Age caregivers are referred to throughout the text with a final list where contacts may be made on the web, by e-mail, or phone. Although some of the exercises are unusual, teens who are put off by mainstream religion may find the spiritual practices used in other religious cultures an aid to self-discovery. Using New Age resources, this book offers solid advice for young people. This is a good title for the Young Adult section of the public library. 2003, Bindu Books/Inner Traditions International, Ages 14 to 18.

From the Introduction:

The Teachings

The teachings you find in this book will offer you answers to questions you have about your intuition and how to use it. It is also a journey of spiritual empowerment, where through the exercises and readings you will find yourself empowered with truth and courage. This is what this material has done for me.

Every chapter begins with two stories. The first story is an ancient story from cultures around the world. These ancient cultures valued intuition and the spiritual life and believed it important that elders, such as myself, teach this wisdom to our youth. The second one is from a teen today, a story of his or her intuitive and spiritual awakening. Each chapter will then offer simple instructions on understanding and developing your own intuition and energy body.

Before we begin, let’s acknowledge that our culture also has secrets—all of which need to come out into the open. These secrets are about the energy body, the wisdom of our intuition and emotions, and about our spirituality. Most of these secrets (mysteries) are known but are not taught to teenagers (they are even kept from many adults). These secrets all hold treasures that need to be taught and spoken. This book is meant to open that door in you that opened in me . . .the one that leads you to your own truths and gifts. The one that will take you on the journey of intuitive and spiritual empowerment.

My intention in writing this book is to help you walk towards your own truths. It is not intended to have you walk in my truths or anybody else's. Take from this book whatever you may find helpful. Start walking now. All that you need will arrive to help you.

A Quiz: How Intuitive Are You?

This quiz will offer you more insight to your own intuition (since we all have this ability in degrees). There are twenty- three statements below for you to read and respond to. On a separate sheet of paper, write the numbers 1 through 23 in a vertical column. Read each statement. Then, next to the number on your paper that corresponds to that statement, write the word that best describes how often you experience what the statement says. Choose one of these words for your answer: often, sometimes, or rarely.

1. I am aware of others feelings.
2. I experience social anxiety.
3. I sense things before they happen.
4. I remember my dreams.
5. I have repetitive dreams.
6. I am afraid of some of my feelings.
7. I experience a lot of coincidences.
8. I have gut feelings about decisions.
9. Friends seem to come to me a lot for advice.
10. I know my dreams mean something.
11. I have been told that I am too sensitive (that I overreact).
12. I have de ja vu experiences.
13. I believe I am intuitive.
14. I believe or sense that a Greater Power watches over me and helps me.
15. I am scared of what I know.
16. I have known things were going to happen before they did.
17. I have high self-esteem.
18. I can speak up for myself to my peers.
19. I can speak up for myself to adults.
20. I know how to ask for advice.
21. I have a strong sense of purpose; I know what I am going to do with my life.
22. I use drugs and/or food to avoid my thoughts and feelings.
23. I know when someone is not telling the truth.

Now add up your answers:
1 point for each “rarely”
2 points for each “sometimes”
3 points for each “often”

If you scored 23 to 35:
You are not very in tuned to your intuition — so it is likely is buried. You likely don’t feel very good about yourself or trust the way you do feel, but this will improve quickly as you practice the exercises in the book. You have low self-esteem and are not likely to take good care of yourself. You sense something inside of you but not sure how to access it. The first step for you will be to start uncovering your hidden intuition and letting the treasures out. Then, soon you will begin noticing a stronger sense of yourself and your surroundings. You will be begin to trust your intuitive self more often and feel more energized and positive. Keeping a journal while you read this book will be very helpful.

If you scored 36 to 58:
You are highly intuitive although you may not fully understand what it all means. Others experience you as oversensitive but friends are likely to come to you for advice because they sense you have good insight into their problems. You may experience social anxiety in part due to your very real sensitivity to your surroundings. You do not necessary trust or understand your abilities. You oscillate between having very good feelings about yourself (high-self esteem) and days where you bottom out and your self-esteem is very low. You will quickly benefit from this book because you will find the guidance in here makes you feel safer, more balanced and confident in your intuitive abilities.

If you scored 59 to 69:
You are aware that you have psychic abilities although you have not received instruction on how to skillfully use your abilities. Your self-esteem is fairly high (most of the time) and you are ready and excited about using the guidance in this book. Your confidence and skills will build quickly as you work through this book.

No matter what your score, this book will help you develop and trust what is already inside of you.
