Wisdom and Modern Mystics Jen Loves:
Jen highly recommends Belinda Davidson’s new book, From Light to Dark as a way of understanding what it can be like to be a sensative or empathic child. Belinda also offers chakra balancing and clearing meditations.

To better understand the energy behind relationships, places and stuff, Jen recommends Denise Linn’s book, Energy Strands. Check out chapter 4, Jen especially loves the list of essential oils Denise recommends for protecting your energy field and keeping your space energetically uplifting.
Both Jen and Oprah Winfrey credit Gary Zukav’s book, The Seat of the Soul with a profound spiritual awakening. Try it!
Jen likes to read the articles put forward by this enlightened physician, Dr. Laura Koniver and she highly recommends “earthing” as a very grounding and healing practice for adults and children. You can read about it on her website, Intuition-physician.com

Jen is currently reading (and loving) Victoria Jennings’, Mother as God. She is also reading Tyla and Douglas Gabriel’s three volume Gospel of Sophia. The first volume starts with a wonderful description of the author’s personal encounter with the Great Goddess as Pele.

If you love essential oils, I personally use and recommend Young Living. I enjoy the member benefits and get a monthly order delivered to my home at a discounted rate. I have the Aria difuser in my office space and love it! Its a little pricey but well worth the benefits. They are high quality and well sourced – I can’t say enough about these oils especially the Abundance and Purification blends, I use them daily. I also use Palo Santo, Geranium and Lemongrass to prepare my meditation spaces and make sure the energy in the space is positive and uplifting.
