Seems much like a regeneration of the old I AM Activity of the Saint Germain Foundation of Chicago, Ill. Not my cup of tea, thought I might like it but it is just too much like the church I was raised in and Mrs. "Momma" Ballard I knew as a teen. Maybe they believe they are actually in contact and speaking for Ascended Masters but I rather think they have convinced themselves this is the reality rather than what is really happening. ....And here you are... I was annoyed from the start when she kept saying that phrase over and over... maybe it comes off well in print or in person but not so well in audio. Maybe my lacking to be a little irritated by such, my own issue and not hers, but there it is, how I felt.
I don't yet know what to think or believe of such, Elizabeth Prophet did much of this same thing, built a religion around the old I AM Activity materials, going as far as stealing the copyright of their founding book "The I AM Presence" by filing for copyright right under the noses of the Saint Germain foundation who were remiss in making sure it had been protected. Says something about Elizabeth Prophet, doesn't it?
I'm a bit turned off by much of this kind of thing and people who claim to voice the thoughts and communications of "Ascended Masters". I grew up in a religion which played on that for years and years and have come to see the severe flaws they had in their teachings... yet, at their core I think they have a lot right, a lot very right, wonderful core... just the Ascended Master angle which turns me off because I just don't buy much of it, wish I could, I dearly wish I could.
This book is essentially about channeling the collective spirit to allow you to justify taking advantage of others and think only of having yourself feel better. I could not get beyond the prologue and first chapter. Beware if you are not already a Law of Attraction/Hicks devotee. I can't belive I wasted my money on this pop cultish garbage.
