Short books worth reading.
Reviewed for people with little time to read!
Fifth Chakra E-book by Subtle Harmony (Gin White)

Fifth Chakra eBook by Subtle Harmony

I LOVE this compact book - all 39 pages of it!

Can you relate to any or all of the below?
'Have you ever been speaking and had someone interrupt you… perhaps not even to talk to you, but to direct their attention away and speak to someone else, as though you weren't even speaking at all?

Have you ever spoken up at a business meeting and felt like you weren't heard?

Or have you wanted to speak up at a business meeting (or in any other situation, really) but felt uncomfortable, and so you said nothing at all?

Have you ever wanted to write a book, tell a story, paint a picture, sing a song… but felt stifled somehow?

Or have you ever written that book, told that story, painted that picture, performed that song… but kept it to yourself, feeling too afraid or too uncomfortable or too something to share it with others?'

It all starts with an overview of the chakra system the colors, names and meanings of these energy centers. Of course, more attention is given to the 5th chakra.

If you are thinking you really don't need another review of the chakra system - read on...

Gin explains that communicating isn't just about using your voice, and nor is it just about communicating to others. She says

'We’re also talking about communicating with your intuition and your heart and your own Self. It also involves communication with Spirit/Divine/God/Universe/Higher Power, your angels and guides and guardians, or however you choose to define what is greater than yourself.'

Now, that's interesting stuff, huh?

And yes, this book really does tell you how to open up these communication channels by working with crystals, stones, aromatherapy oils, sound, color, journal prompts, meditations and affirmations.

This isn't a quick fix book. These changes are often subtle, but that's not to say they are not working.

Remember, the only way to see the improvement in your communication is to listen...

Why did I choose to review this book? Because it's brief, easy to read, in a language that is easy to understand and also meaningful with exercises you can put into practice right NOW! And the bonus is that it is available as a download, so you can buy it today and start work on your 5th chakra within minutes.

Find your voice find your truth.

Thank you, Gin for a wonderful read!


I used to read.  I used to read a lot.  I used to love to read.

Living in London, England I had a thirty minute commute each way, five days a week.  That makes for a lot of reading.  Now I have a forty-five minute car drive for my commute.  Couple that with a six year old son and that makes for zero reading time.

But somewhere my brain hasn't made this connection.  Still I buy paper and Kindle books as if I am still in my pre-family days and commuting by train.  The paper books sometimes get flicked through and even carried around in my tote for a few weeks, and I've managed to get to the end of a few good tales on the Kindle, but generally opening a book at the end of a long day at the office just sends me straight to sleep. And that's no slur on the book content - just my brain's way of saying enough is enough!

But I still LOVE reading.  I love a good story, I love learning, I love a good self-help guide, and I simply ADORE a good craft book!

What is one supposed to do!?

Well, I'm going to read short books that get straight to the point AND I'm going to help you my happy reader to get straight to the point too!

I kid you not!

I'm working on my first book review right now.  Sign up for blog updates on the left of your screen if you want to be notified when the first review is up.


Have you seen what's in my Society 6 shop?

This one is my favorite!

The Simple Sabbat and Things My Mother Knew

Maybe it's because I am in the desert that I purchased the book?  In the Palm Springs valley area.  The mountains and valleys and wildlife all around make me feel more grounded, more connected with nature.  

I have just purchased The Simple Sabbat by Charming Pixe Flora.  Just a few pages in and already I've fallen in love.  She includes instructions for rituals that includes kids - now who could not fall in love with that?

And in a strange way her book reminds me of my mother.  My mother was brought up in London, England and in the Church of England faith which is basically Christian with a few modifications by the English Royal Family along the way.

BUT she knew about Pagan rituals, herbal remedies, old wives' tales.  She understood full moons and new moons and the changing of the seasons.  She knew sentences and rhyming words that some may call spells but to her they were just words that she knew.

Occasionally, her Church of England faith would come out and she would say 'Oh but it's all silly really.'  But in general she would talk more about nature's ways than the church.

If I could have time with my mother again I would like to ask her how she knows the things she knew...

My Beautiful Mom


Yep, seems I have the beading bug!
Last night's creation...


My mother-in-law is visiting and I'm struggling to find things to keep her entertained.  I booked us onto a beading class at the local bead store.

We had great fun and both came away with a finished necklace.  Who knew I would choose orange?  My sacral chakra must have needed some attention that evening.

But I cannot take credit for the entire necklace.  My six year old son collaborated with me.  The tiny colored beads are his addition - I think they are the best part!

Happy July 4th!

We'll be bbq-ing a little later but of course I'm doing a little crafting...  I think I'm addicted to the smell of Mod Podge.
How are you celebrating this July 4th?
