What is Wealthy Wednesday?
Wednesday is about helping you build a wealthy mind through inspirational books, articles, videos or other resources that will help you develop your wealth of knowledge.
Wednesday is a good day to understand your feelings. Are you counting the hours down until the weekend? Did you get out of bed this morning and think, ‘I’m nearly half-way through the week’?
We can all continue to develop our wealthy minds, but if you relate to the above, your spiritual wealthiness definitely needs some TLC 🙂
This week’s book is one by Dr Wayne W. Dyer and Dee Garnes
Children’s Astounding Recollections of the Time Before They Came to Earth
This book was sat on my shelf for quite a while before I actually read it. I would lift it from the bookshelf and then put it back after being distracted by other things.
However, I decided in the summer to take it on holiday. After reading Doreen Virtue’s Miracles of Archangel Gabriel I was drawn to the book … would could children tell us about our time before here?
Well, I wasn’t disappointed with the recollections; it was an amazing and awe-inspiring read. Gripping from the start.
Usually on holiday I listen to audible so I can watch my girls in the pool etc. so having this book as a paperback I wasn’t sure I would have chance to read it, however, once I started, I could not put it down.
My girls are now nine and seven years, and this book bought back memories of their time when they were younger. I remember when Lexi, my eldest, was just two years old and she had an imaginary friend called Lucy. Lucy came everywhere with us, ate with us and even slept with Lexi most nights. Lexi would come up with these stories about Lucy, where she’d been, who her family was etc. I use to think that she had an amazing imagination, and being a writer myself and telling stories from a young age, I didn’t really think anything of it.
One particular day, Lexi asked me to take a photo of her and Lucy, of course, I joined in the fun, like I always did. I snapped a few photos, telling Lexi and (supposedly Lucy) to smile for the photo. Lexi wanted to view the photo on my camera, you can imagine my shock when she said, ‘Where’s Lucy?’ ‘Lucy isn’t on the photo?’ I still get tingles now when I think about that conversation.
After reading this book, I wish I’d been able to read it when my girls were younger, especially when Lexi was communicating with the little girl Lucy. Any parents or grandparents of younger children should definitely read this book. It shows the innocence of our babies and toddlers, their purity before they are moulded into what our society thinks they should be.
There are some bad reviews that say this book repeats itself, but doesn’t that give the children’s stories in this book more validity? If many children are reciting the same kind of stories about the their time before they were born, wouldn’t that mean there is more truth behind these stories? I think so. Whether you believe in afterlife or not, rebirth or Reincarnation, this is still an interesting and inspiring read. It shows there is more to life than our bodies on this earth 🙂
