KIRKUS REVIEW

The author describes her path to spiritual discovery.

Ranucci experienced a rough childhood starved of love, approval and support; her mother was highly critical and manipulative and left her to fend for herself at the age of 16. Though she remained deeply convinced of her own value, the author began to realize that she was replicating in her adult relationships the damage she had suffered as a child. In order to overcome these negative patterns, she dedicated herself to her spiritual growth. Here, she shares her journey, the universal laws and divine resources she discovered and the ways in which she was able to reinvent her outlook on life. Ranucci describes how each human being is comprised of several higher and lower bodies that interact with each other and connect us to the divine consciousness. Furthermore, we–and all of creation–are impacted by the karma created by the positive and negative ways we have used our divine energy throughout numerous lifetimes. Meditation is the crux of spiritual exploration, says the author. As part of this practice, she describes how readers can call upon the various colored rays that make up the divine white light to protect, to cleanse and to enlighten. Many readers will be skeptical of the coincidences Ranucci claims to have experienced and find it difficult to believe, as she asserts, that one can quiet storms or effect other changes in the physical world through meditation and directing one’s spiritual energy. Others may be left wanting more of a step-by-step manual for seeking spiritual growth. But the author’s insights, based on her study of numerous spiritual traditions, are compelling because they demonstrate how she has concretely improved her daily life, and Ranucci offers enough guidance for readers to begin their own journeys.

Follow the light, but watch your step.
