Jera's Jamboree

I’m an avid reader, loving nothing more than expanding my microcosmic world. I enjoy escaping into all sorts of worlds through reading and also love to challenge my opinions and thoughts.

The High Heeled Guide to Enlightenment - Alice Grist This book is one I would love to have had in my possession when I started out searching for a sense of belonging 28 years ago!

Full of humour and ‘down to earth’ (no really, it is!), it’s Alice’s modern day quest to find healing through a spiritual journey that although is very personal, is also written for her readers to do their own ‘research’ – to experience for themselves the myriad paths that are available for seekers.

You won’t find any technical words that you know absolutely nothing about – everything is explained. Observations and insights will prick your subconscious and get the wheel turning. It certainly made me remember books I have on my shelf from years ago that I need to re-read in light of my own experiences along the path (Awakening the Buddha Within springs to mind).

My favourite has to be Alice’s own experiences! She is honest and open and not afraid to relate when she has found it a struggle. I have to admire her for the section on Kabbalah – I gave up at the first hurdle and have never gone back to it.

Synchronicity is something I strongly believe in. I had been feeling that I was neglecting my spiritual life. Alice’s book came at the right time for me – it’s made me realise that I am practising my chosen spirituality every day. Just because I have books unread on my shelves, does not mean my soul is not being nurtured.

Whether you have only just started feeling restless, feeling something is missing from your life – or have been searching for a while, I would recommend this book. It’s reminded me of a request I have to make to the universe ……………………….
