    Excellent Primer on Channeling Divine Guidance

    Writing the Divine dusts off and demystifies and the ancient occult practice of "automatic writing" in ways that help anyone develop the ability to channel divine guidance for themselves. Author Sara Wiseman is a trustworthy guide on this journey of learning to glean messages for one's personal transformation and life transitions, as she shares friendly and practical advice as well as tips on how to get started.

    Wiseman mentions having had an early ability to read minds as well as an interest in the paranormal and occult... before experiencing a time in her life in which she scoffed at any mention of spirit guides or energy. She opened up again following a series of challenging life experiences (her father's death, a near death experience, and divorce), and discovered "there was no road worth traveling other than the path directed by the Divine," at which point "... my life started to happen with amazing speed and beauty."

    Indeed, the kind of information typically obtained in channeled writing is often that quiet inner sense of knowingness most of us encounter from time to time, when we intuitively know something we have no way of knowing. Channeling divine guidance gives a voice to such subconscious feelings in ways that help us better know our own hearts, minds, and souls.

    Wiseman provides uplifting, inspirational examples of her own channeled writings toward the end of Writing the Divine, demonstrating by way of example how channeled writings can sometimes be both powerful for an individual and meaningful to others as well. Readers who initially feel cautious, nervous, or concerned will have their fears put to rest as they follow the simple steps and learning process described.

    Writing the Divine offers something for all readers, even those reluctant to dive fully into obtaining their own channeled messages, with thirty three lessons for divine guidance provided at the end of the book. Highly recommended!
