I don’t usually take on books of this genre; however, the author’s query letter was so intriguing I had to take a look at her book. I am glad that I did.
At first, The Art of Conscious Creation
seems a little new-agey and a bit on the “earth-muffin” side of things, but after reading the first few chapters, I realized that what
Jackie Lapin is trying to get across in the beginning is that most religions, tribal beliefs, myths and legends involve a source of energy. We all call this energy different things; sometimes it is known as
Fate, or God or Higher Power, Great Grandfather, the Force or by some other title.
The main theme throughout is showing readers how they can change the world by changing themselves. It is an uplifting, inspiring, motivating book that will have you thinking differently about every single thing in your life. Readers will feel positive and optimistic
as they learn how to become more proactive and employ tools they learn in this book to creating positive change in their lives, their families and their communities.
Most interesting are the stats, scientific studies and real-life experiments with life energy. The author covers such things as
auras, therapy, affirmations, visualizations, meditation, yoga, and other very interesting topics,
showing readers how their actions have a ripple effect for those they encounter every moment of every day.
My entire outlook on life was altered by reading this paperback. Within its 216 pages, readers will find an intriguing look at the world’s religions, science and theories. The author closes with 17 visualization meditations that will help readers reprogram their own thinking, thereby clearing the channels within themselves for creating positive change. An audio CD of these meditations is available for those who prefer this option.
This is a fascinating study on life and the individual’s purpose or value in life. For readers who wish to find out more on this subject,
Lapin has included bibliography and recommended reading sections to help them along.
In the past, Lapin has worked as an educator for universities and was one of the nation’s first female sportswriters. She launched the
nation's foremost sports, entertainment and special event PR firm in the U.S. and has authored two books. She currently works for United World Healing, an international organization she founded, and she travels the world giving lectures on “conscious creation.”
The only negative aspect to this publication is that I could find no information on recycled content or any other environmental step that was taken by the publisher for this book. Because of this, I feel I have to dock the rating of this book by
half a star.
