To illustrate the way creativity can flower when we fully accept our conditions, Choquette (The Psychic Pathway) retells a story told to her by her mother, a Romanian who was imprisoned in a concentration camp during WWII. After the war, Choquette's mother saved a Gypsy friend from being imprisoned for stealing an army blanket by inspiring him to say that he was color-blind and didn't recognize the blanket he took as one belonging to the army. "Surrendering your power over to blame, resentment, or anger or feeling like a victim is the worst thing you can do," writes Choquette, who urges people to use their current situation as a "launching pad." Thanks to many unpretentious real-life examples such as her mother's survival wisdom, this spiritual guide achieves a modesty and practicality that sets it apart from more grandiose New Age offerings. Achieving our hearts' desires depends on nine "principles," according to Choquette-for example, focusing on a desire and consciously intending to achieve it; becoming aware of any unconscious blocks that may be thwarting conscious desires; and being open to the guidance of intuition. The author's husband, Patrick Tully, provides meditations that support and illustrate each principle. In her foreword, Cameron praises Choquette for describing the "nuts and bolts" of spiritual practice. While some may dismiss Choquette's work as simplistic, it should serve many as a useful primer to finding the spiritual within the material of ordinary life. (Mar.)

Sonia Choquette's book, YOUR HEART'S DESIRE, describes nine simple principles we can use successfully to find and follow our heart's true desires. While each idea may appear to be obvious, most of us could use a few reminders on how to: (1) Bring the dream into focus, (2) Gain support of the subconscious mind, (3) Imagine the heart's desire, (4) Eliminate obstacles, (5) Receive Intuitive Guidance, (6) Support the dream with love, (7) Surrender control, (8) Claim the dream, and (9) Stay true to the dream. Choquette knows that we create reality, and are better off when we don't spend a lot of time and energy contemplating what we're worried or upset about. She advises that our dreams come true more beautifully when we travel lightly, take responsibility for our dreams, and stop being control freaks. Choquette's many years of teaching workshops on this subject are evident in the enjoyable stories and excercises she includes in each section. She also includes a special meditation at the end of each chapter, so readers may better absorb the ideas. I highly recommend this book for anyone seeking advice from a master of living life true to one's heart -- every page is a joy to read!

When I first looked at this book, I thought it was just another flaky new age book but because the cover was so pretty, I decided to flip through it. Once I began reading it, I found that it not only was full of great insights that made a lot of sense, but extremely inspiring! It gives you the courage to forgive, to let go of anger, and to let go of fears that prevent you from reaching your potential! My life has not been the same since I read this book! Since I read this book, everyday is a day I make progress toward my dreams in life. It is a wonderful feeling! Another great book I'd recommend along these lines is 'The Ever-Transcending Spirit' by Toru Sato. It is more theoretical but helps you understand everything and see the world including yourself as one the coherent big picture! I think you won't be disappointed with these books.

As a resolution for the year 2000, I proclaimed that I would devote this year to applying all the spiritual information I've embraced, to practical application, in my life. Ms. Choquette's work arrived at exactly the perfect time to embrace it. Sonia Choquette's writing is gentle, guided, and gifted with applications that are practical to the human spiritual experience. She requires not that the reader find a mountaintop to begin to re-direct one's life. Beginning with where you are, and coaxing you to where you want to be, each message includes guidance and personal stories of her own evolution. I recommend this book with tremendous gratitude and warmth. At the reader's pace, or enthusiasm, each offering can be it's own opportunity for successful life changes. From the forward, by Julia Cameron, who's 'The Artist's Way' (et al)tremendously touched me, I knew this book would be the basis for tremendous, yet, comfortable growth.
