Many of you who have read her book are reading this review. She has put forth many Spiritual Truths condensed in a single book. Many who have found 'love of work' can attest to the truth of her words that money follows automatically. Many who have found good health can attest to her strict diet that she proposes.
With knowledge of Astrology, Numerology and Lexigrams presented to us, I would suggest to many readers to start to put into practice these teachings. Thus, you will be able to attest to her words once again. For those of you who haven't got her 'Purple Plates', I urge you to try them out as well. Burns, cuts and headaches tend to disappear very quickly when used.
Of her explanation of Karma, I used to always wonder why, if God is Love and He loved his children equally why would he harm some and glorify others. I realize now that Man has brought all his sins upon himself and has to pay for them through Karma and reincarnation.
Lastly, the list of books provided by Linda is of valuable assistance to the strong of heart. I would suggest getting the book 'Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television'. Then unplug your TV and you will have more time to yourself. Then get the book 'The Game of Life and How to Play It' by Florence Shinn and put it into practice. Other books that have proved extremely enjoyable are 'Secrets of the Soil' & 'Secret Life of Plants' by Peter Tompkins and other Joseph Goodavage books.
In the spring of 1989, when I was visiting my best friend in Nashville, she told me I had to read Star Signs, this great book she had discovered by Linda Goodman. On the way to the book store, we started discussing karmic/spiritual matters and I mentioned that I'd always felt like Job in the Bible, my life was full of problems and unhappinesses, and my best efforts seemed to go unrewarded. We got a copy of the book, got back in the car and I started reading my birth number out loud. The first few sentences stated that people born under my birth number had some of the heaviest karma and may feel like Job in the Bible. My friend and I started screaming and laughing. Truly amazing.
At the time, I was too young and inexperienced to fully grasp some of the things in this book, but I have recently started reading it again. The numerology is very accurate in the majority of cases, my roommate and I have checked out many friends birth numbers and laughed in recognition. The book also gives excellent details on how the Bible was altered and misinterpreted by ancient Emperors in collusion with the Catholic Church.
I've recently eliminated red meat from my diet and plan to follow Goodman's advice on becoming vegetarian, it seems very safe and sensible.
I also have an internet biz and followed her advice on pricing things as $5.99, for example, rather than $6. Still too soon to tell.
It's an entertaining read and I do think Goodman meant well. I do believe she went a bit off the deep end in her older age, I don't believe in immortality and who would want to live forever anyway?? It also seems pretty certain her daughter Sally is dead. As for color diets, I haven't tried them so who knows?
Nevertheless, it is a great, interesting read and much of the information is both accurate and informative. I have found that those who read Goodman's books with an open mind and sincere heart have very interesting experiences happen. I have also read Gooberz and while I didn't believe every word, I did suddenly meet several romantic interests, which Goodman said would happen while reading it. Coincidence?
