An Inspirational Guide for the Recovering Soul


Since the publication of Gifts from the Child Within, I wrote a follow-up inspirational book entitled An Inspirational Guide for the Recovering Soul. This book is targeted to those adults searching for recovery with an inspirational lift. It is written to address all areas of recovery: post-traumatic stress from any origin, childhood abuse or trauma, addiction or drug addiction recovery, issues concerning our  current world affairs, or just as an inspirational boost for the soul.
The cover of this third book was created by my daughter, Cindy Moran, of Moran Creative Design. I asked her to paint me a rainbow for the cover and magically she emailed me this brilliant splash of colors!

When you read An Inspirational Guide for the Recovering Soul just open it to any page while holding an issue or thought in your mind to receive comforting quotes, messages, insight, suggested rituals and exercises. The inspirational quotes are taken from inspirational and spiritual texts or from teachers such as The Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, Gary Zukav, Paramahansa Yogananda, Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson, Lao Tzu, and Shakti Gawain.
Each quote contains a brief message to ponder while reading the accompanying page which guides you to delve deeper into exploring your Recovering Soul. The exercise, insight, or ritual follows the theme of the previous quote and brings you toward a sense of spiritual understanding regarding your issue of focus.

Sample Page from this Book:

Spiritual teacher Shakti Gawain's quote: "We will discover the nature of our particular genius when we stop trying to conform to our own or to other people's models, learn to be ourselves, and allow our natural channel to open."

These inspiring words lead you to my guidance on the opposite page of each quote:

 When flying in a plane one's perspective or depth perception becomes a bit distorted. What looks like inches of land below is miles; what appears to be tiny green spots are in reality huge trees and lush meadows. Do not misjudge the power you possess within your own mind. What seems to be a fixed, non-changeable attitude or habit is only a belief ready to be altered or re-created. There is a channel, a door, which you can open now to allow the light of new hope to enter. Do not be discouraged by those around you, illusions are everywhere...Find the door leading to your true-Self. (pg. 106).

In this time of world prayer and inspirational searching, this guide-book brings an avenue for healing and recovery. Dr. Robert Chaney, author and co-founder of Astara Ministries and the publisher of this book states, "Barbara Sinor summons past and present spiritual greats to speak on the pages of An Inspirational Guide for the Recovering Soul then she adds her own spiritual perceptions. The result rekindles and brightens the inner flame of each seeker."

The pages within this book are intended to stimulate action toward discovering a path of well-being and spiritual balance. It can be used once a day, once a week, or whenever you require a hint of insight or guidance. I believe in the power of our mind, the power of our free choice, and in a Higher Universal Power. Another excerpt from this book:

There are two universal laws which stick in my mind. The first is: Belief precedes experience. The second: Thought creates reality. If you believe the second law, you are creating your life, your reality, with each thought. Therefore, what you believe is what you will manifest. Now you can understand how important it is to know exactly what you believe about yourself and your world. If you believe yourself to be strong, confident, and whole, these attributes are yours. On the other hand, if you believe you are lacking ability, powerless, and weak, you are manifesting these aspects into reality. Changing your thoughts to be more optimistic will in turn change your beliefs into a more positive world view. Universal Power is always available to you, use it constructively. (pg. 264)
