I love the style this book is written in. Lots of short chapters which makes it feel like you are reading someone's journal. Given that it's purported to be a true story you might well be. It has a very down to earth feel and the author starts off being obviously sceptical herself about all the hoopy happenings, however by the end she has embraced her new found knowledge. As Crystal said above, it has it all, intrigue, heartache, romance etc etc and you really do want to find out which path Lauren will take. There were also little snippets that resonated and made me feel more comfortable about things that happen to me personally on my own spiritual journey and I thank the author for being so candid in places where it must have been difficult to be so. All in all a wonderful read and one I would heartily recommend.
"Light Behind the Angels" by Lauren D'Silva is more than a spiritual read, it details an in-depth process of coming into our full glory as human souls while still encased in bodies. The author shares her own mystical and practical journey on the path to enlightenment step-by-step in great detail, and in a manner that lets readers feel they are right there witnessing each transition and transformation. Besides following the journey many key aspects of mystical practices are revealed that would take maybe 10 books to otherwise learn about. Ms. D'Silva doesn't hold back on revealing all the beautiful insight she experiences, right along with stories of when events didn't go as hoped or expected. And that is real life, not a fairytale of events, but instead the highs and lows of forward and backward movement toward the ultimate goal. You'll learn about the topography of this part of Great Britain and this really puts you in the place where the author lived. You can see the towns and landscapes, both. I find that is so important in understanding the characters in the book. The rich detail paid to describing places in time also carries readers right to those moments. Also of note is the writing style which flows smoothly and keeps the reader engaged. As we are all connected in the human family you may feel very familiar with the turn of events as they occur, I know I did. Reading this book is more than one person's journey, it brings us to what we are all meant to find out about ourselves as human beings on planet earth, and as souls of the larger universal family. This is a must-read for all New Age travelers!
I received this book in the post and started reading it the moment I got home from work - I could not put it down, it was riveting. Love, passion, intrigue, broken hearts, past lives and an ancient curse - just how was it all going to turn out? Would Lauren find fulfilling love & her perfect life with her 'Twin Flame' or would the High Priest break the curse & win her heart? Not a work of fiction, but a true story and I actually knew how it ended before opening to the first page, but it didn't stop me from being captivated. The ending? Well, you will have to find out for yourself.....
From the moment I got this book i could not put it down, I felt I was with the Authoress every step of her journey, each chapter was an insight into lives and worlds we believe exist but have been scared to look. Its is written in such a down to earth manner, I was captivated right from the first chapter, willing her on, wondering how she would handle the tasks put before her. It has shown me that the paths we choose are not always easy and that there is a path that can show us our true selves, but we have to be brave, very brave in this case.
Uplifting and inspiring, and filled me with a confidence about the little things that keep on nudging me along my path. Just hope I can be as brave and true as Lauren D'Silva.
I have finished reading the book in four days... one word Amazing! I love the writing style; whilst reading I felt I was getting to know an old friend. Your journey is (and was!) wonderful, it was great to see how your life has been shaped by experiences and that you have your guides etc to help you. I know it has been a tough one for you and I send a hug across the miles...
...It was a genuine pleasure to read and I felt a little sad at the end as I wanted more!! Truly inspirational.
A fantastic personal journey! And written by one very courageous lady. It is a blessing that she has chosen to share her experiences with the world in this book. By sharing what she has been through, she is going to help many people with their journeys. Thank you Lauren.
A beautifully written, moving & funny account of one inspirational woman's search for her life purpose. Once started, impossible to put down! Thank you for sharing this with us Lauren ... Blessed Be my friend.
