Brightest Blessings

This book contains a wealth of knowledge in its easy to use format. It makes you want to take your time referencing and reading up on what your dreams mean the next morning. Each entry is well thought out. Ms. Towers gives a bit of intro into dreams, a little bit on nightmares, also.

I especially loved her advice here where she says:

” As you begin interpreting your dreams, consider images that the dreams are giving you, if a certain image means something to you, check the interpretation in this book, but also go with your own feeling about the image” -Jacqueline Towers

I feel the most interesting information came from her entry about colors and how each has it’s own meaning.

Mixed: you will have increased security and success.

Blue: you will be free of worry, and you can expect help from others. Red: you should control your temper.

Green: Expect news from afar or plan for a journey.

Gray: you will experience a stagnant period.

Mauve: you will have some small disappointments.

Orange: Delays will occur
Pink: surprising success is coming your way.

Yellow: Achievement will be gained only after a series of setbacks and struggle.

White: the color of promise succession all areas of your life.

Black: this color is unhappy omen, unless connected with funeral, in which case it predicts that you will have difficulties to overcome.

You can learn a lot and gain new insight on many topics of dreaming from this book. Some of the entries are short, but they give you a lot to ponder on dream interpretation. This book is a good tool for understanding dreams and small enough to tuck into your purse or pocket to enjoy somewhere in the sun. This is a good book to start with.

My thoughts:

Like with any thing when learning about dreams, write down about the dream, emotions, colors, images, even numbers, esp anything that repeats. You can find a lot of help in Ms Towers book, but don’t be afraid to look beyond as well.

One of the first things Ms. Towers says about meditations is “meditations aren’t something you need to work because they just start” I like the way this book is laid out, Ms. Towers has done an excellent job of presenting this material.

In the first chapter, entitled “About Meditation,” Ms. Towers lists 12 benefits of meditation and eight different techniques. Of the eight different methods of meditation, not all of them require you to quiet your mind. (Which is a good thing, because I never have a quiet mind.) In chapter 3 on equipment and products for meditation, the author lists a few meditation cushions or zafus that you can use. In chapter 3, she also includes a list of incense or essences, and these she has broken down into wood or mineral, fruit or plant.

Chapters 4 through 15 are about the different types of meditations. Ms. Towers has them broken down, in such a way that if you are looking for a meditation on chakras, or knowledge, or angelic, or emotional, they are easy to find. One of the meditations in chapter 7 that I found interesting was the Flower of Life. I have several flowers of life around my desk where I work, and where I do most of my reading, so it was easy for me to envision this image while meditating.

In chapter 12, Ms. Towers starts talking about psychic techniques, and how meditation can help you heighten them. The author also talks about how psychics use meditation before doing readings. Chapter 13, Ms. Towers writes about using a meditation to do a past life regression. While reading this meditation, I went into the meditation and was able to explore part of a past life that comes to me during a dream. So, I can say without a doubt, this meditation works.

In chapter 14 Ms. Towers covers mindfulness meditation. The author includes information about mindfulness, yoga, and even doing a meditation upon the five principles of Reiki. Within the five principles of Reiki meditation, the author breaks it down even further into helping you meditate on why you may have an issue with one of the five principles.

In the last chapter, chapter 15, Ms. Towers has a meditation with candles. In this meditation. She explains how the flames may behave during your meditation and what that can mean for you. She also covers Christian contemplation, Buddhist meditation, cosmic ordering, and astral travel. In Focus Your Guide to Meditation is a well-written book, and it’s laid out intuitively. I’m glad I can add it to my library, I hope you will be too.
