This is the first book I read by Bodine - it got me hooked on developing the gifts, and then I read Tiffany Snow's book and that one was a "Wow!" so beautiful and inspiring. The lessons that Still, Small Voice helped me to begin, Psychic Gifts expanded. Now, I have the courage and insight to see that I have control over my life. Once I started to believe that I could have good things happen in my life, and learned how to ask and how to listen, wonderful things started to manifest in everyday occurances. Reading books like these have inspired me to my bones!
Echo Bodine writes beautifully about the human gift of intuition. In simple, conversational language, Echo gently guides the reader towards uncovering his or her inner knowing. This book is unique because Echo "normalizes" the experience of intuition -- teaching us that the intuitive voice is a gift we all possess-- a gift that can be used to enhance every moment of our lives. In fact, I was most impressed by her illustrations of how intuition can be used at any moment during an ordinary day -- and needn't be reserved for 'life altering decisions.' I was also touched by Echo's honesty; she presents herself as a "real" person with a history of struggle, and reflects on the interpersonal conflicts that can arise when friends and loved ones do not understand our spiritual path. Echo writes a lot about God but leaves the dogma behind -- allowing each reader to draw on his or her own interpretation of the divine. The book is so down-to-earth and non-judgemental that reading it feels like being in conversation with a gentle, caring, friend.
