Grief takes all of us on a journey, but Erin's is particularly interesting. I found myself nodding along to a lot of her story, finding similarities in my own experiences, and then realizing that that is the whole point of this book! Erin's journey has resulted in her crossing paths and being able to help so many people because of her life story. Not everyone turns their tragedy into triumph, but Erin is a soulful, intuitive, empathic person who is willing to bare her own truth in the hope that it will benefit her readers in any way. I had the pleasure of also meeting Erin in person and - if it's possible - she's even more incredible than you might imagine. A gifted writer, an intuitive empath, a kind and open soul, Erin is the real deal and I've been touched by knowing her - and you will, too.
I bought this book the other day and could not put it down. The author's story moved me to tears and some moments had me laughing out loud. She not only shares her story, but includes vignettes of those she has done Tarot readings for. The author does so to illustrate how her life experiences allow her to empathize and give helpful advice to others. Using her psychic abilities she is able to help people. These vignettes are powerful examples of her skill. I applaud Erin Burrell for having the courage to publish her journey.
This book provides a key that may unlock years of repression for many women (and men). The author has taken a risk by sharing her personal experiences, and through her work as a Tarot Reader, Erin Burrell provides tools for healing. I LOVED this brave, and compelling story. Thank you, Erin, for following your heart, and your path.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I’ve always been interested in things that deal with the sixth sense. I really liked that Erin decided she wanted to do something, and was brave enough to dive in head-first. She does not write about her experiences as if some magical ability was suddenly bestowed upon her. Instead, she tells the story of how she nurtured her natural intuition through study and practice. The book is very well-written and very candid. I now want a reading! If you are interested in how a normal woman going through trials healed herself through her journey into tarot card reading, you’ll love this book. I enjoyed reading it.
I choose to read this book because it really resonated with me in terms of my own life experiences,...and I loved the cover art! I had so many similarities to the author's stories and it really surprised me at how we both looked at things in such a very similar way. I would recommend this beautiful story to anyone and everyone, I came away from it with a better sense of realizing that I needed to do better things for myself no matter how long that road may be.
Part memoir; part self help; and part DIY to find a new and improved self; this journey from grief and a candid look at one's past to how to improve on her future, Erin has told her story with candor, humor and a tremendous amount of detail. She was courageous enough to leave a career that offered lots of security to pursue a long held dream to pursue metaphysical awareness through the study of Tarot readings and psychometry.
Erin writes with a keen eye for detail and dialogue. As the reader I often felt like we were having a conversation but in this rare instance I was just a listener. And while I admit to being pretty skeptical about metaphysical awareness, her experiences as both a giver and receiver of information have me rethinking my beliefs.
This is a "two-fer" read; you get memoir and how to learn to pursue a metaphysical lifestyle. It's a win win.
Knowing the writer from our childhood I am amazed at all she has overcome to become the person she is today. I was inspired by her journey and it makes me feel like I need to strive to become a happier person. The tools she has used may not work for all but it is a starting point. I would recommend this book for all to read. Inspiring
My husband turned me on to this book and I loved it! What an amazing story, and written by an amazing woman. I was invested in her story from the very beginning, and I learned a lot about myself and this life while reading it. She experienced unimaginable loss, but found a way to pick up and move on that should inspire all of us. Karla Hurd Sacramento, CA 916.765.1090
