Publisher's Summary

Guided: Winner of the 2017 international Body/Mind/Spirit Book Award. 

Front cover spirit photo captured by: Linda Deir in 1994. 

In a dream, they said they appeared so "The World Could Believe." 

All the key characters and lessons of the Disney fable Cinderella are represented in Guided

Guided is a riveting testament of survival in the face of insurmountable odds where a woman achieved far more than even she imagined, knowing she was being guided. 

At early childhood, Linda Deir experienced something most of us miss - she realized she was being guided. Now, after a lifetime of being guided, she shares what she has learned and how she learned it. 

A survivor of child abuse, at 20 months old, baby Linda knew her life was in danger. Unloved, abused, and out of options, she ran away from home. Two policemen found her miles from home, barefoot and in diapers, running down the median of a busy California expressway. When asked where she was going, she answered, "I'm going to find my daddy, something's wrong with Mommy!" Only after they bribed her with candy did she point out how to get back to her house. When the police were assured she was safe, her mother beat her unconscious. Waking up unable to walk, she found herself right back in the hell she tried to escape. 

Completely out of options, she cried out loud for help. To her surprise, her spirit guide angels appeared all around her! She felt loved and safe for the first time in her life and no longer felt like a victim. 

They said, "Life will get better as you get older, if you can make it through childhood." 

Her challenging childhood would become the foundation fulfilling the rest of their prophecy - "Life will get better for you as you get older." All possible from a higher way of learning influenced by her spirit guides and angels. 

Guided is a suspenseful, true story - an intriguing and thought-provoking spiritual journey that makes the paranormal seem normal and the impossible possible. 

Guided awakens you, so your guides can reach you.

Very Inspiring

If you could sum up Guided in three words, what would they be?

If you are interested in knowing your true spiritual path this book is a great read. I traveled for 8 hours listening to this book and could not turn it off. There were so many things about this story that I could identify with my own journey in life.

What does Linda Deir and Ray Holley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The fact they found love in each other after all those years. Hope.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

Timing - everything happens for a reason. You may not know it or understand it but there is a purpose.

Any additional comments?

I had some questions for Linda Dier. So I immediately went to her website and email her with my questions. I couldn't believe she responded so quickly and she responded and not her staff. I'm very impressed with her passion to help others by sharing her story.

Great

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Very interesting book, I really enjoyed hearing about her life and how angels or spirit guides helped her through. It has definitely made me wonder how can I get in touch with my own.

Life Changing!

Where does Guided rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book had a very strong impact on my life. It has changed the way I look at and handle my life. I have such a sense of peace and excitement at the same time.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There were many things that resonated with me. One that will stick with me forever is the one about making space to allow things to happen. So simple, yet highly effective.

Any additional comments?

This book has changed my life. I am excited about what is coming next for me. Thank you for writing this book.

Inspirational story!

Not sure what inspired me more...the concept of contacting our personal guides, or listening to Linda's triumph in overcoming the obstacles of her life. Now...to learn how to contact my own guides...

Life-Changing story

Linda shows us that there is a purpose to our lives on earth. There is something so truthful that resonates through her story. Open your hearts and hear the messages.

Wow, this book is better than therapy!

I had come upon this book a few months back, however, could not download it until a few days ago. As I started listening to Linda and her story, I realized I felt a kindred spirit with Linda 's unique history, some similar to my own. This book could not have come at a better time! Within listening to the last chapters, I decided to go on Linda and Ray's website and instantly made an appointment to have a session with these two lovely folks and MY spirit guides. Well, as the first words came into fruition, the tears started pouring out because it was absolutely right on! As I write, I am ordering Linda's next book to ensure I stay on this path as my journey of 'my life under construction ' (thanks Linda and Ray! ) continues to be one of thoughtful choices as my guides 'guide me' through this life and hopefully the next one too:).

Thank you Linda

All about Linda Deir.... not Spirit Guides

What would have made Guided better?

A lot more information about the Spirit realm and the interaction with her guides. Instead this book is simply an A to Z autobiography about Linda's life and her being the victim of nearly everyone she was ever involved with. She credits her Guides with getting her through every twist and turn but relates almost nothing about how they guided her other than her crediting her intuition to their guidance. Don't bother if you are looking for any real information on how she converses with her guides or receives their guidance. There is very scant information of this sort.

What could Linda Deir have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

She could haves spent the reader's time relating how she was guided by Spirit and provided a lot more information about her spiritual relationship with her guides rather than detailing every detail of her whole life in an almost day by day account.

Have you listened to any of Linda Deir and Ray Holley ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No... I have not.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment in the nature of the book in that it was not at all what I expected. As to the autobiographical aspect, it is boring to listen to chapter after chapter of her life and the negatively dysfunctional relationships she had for nearly all of her life. It almost makes one wonder just how anyone could have such negative relationships with nearly every important person in their lives... and whether she could have had a much different life It makes me wonder why, if she had such Spirit guidance, she would have gone down some of the chosen paths of her life.

Any additional comments?

If you are looking for any real information on Spirit Guides, their nature, how to contact them or access them or their guidance, look elsewhere and save your money or credits. Similarly, if you are looking for an uplifiting story line... you won't find it here. If you want to know Linda Deir's life in almost excruciating, boring detail then you have found your book.

Not for me.

If you're looking for a book about how to connect with Spirit Guides and your Higher self or spirit, this is NOT the book. If you're looking for a memoir, soap opera type book then this is it. The author is clearly an amazing woman overcoming a mentally ill mother. Her childhood story brought me to tears. But not a book to sit quietly and connect to our deep inner source. Maybe her other books have this but not this one.

Waste of Money

I normally love this type of book, but this was appalling. The author/narrator sounds robotic and appears to have no emotion despite this being HER story. She sees almost everyone she has encountered as egotistical and out for what they can get. I think out of everyone she coached to 'channel' their spirit guides, only 2 were up to her standard.

She gives no guidance on how you can open up to your spirit guide or how she communicated with hers, all she harps on about is how amazing she was as a business woman, how everyone relies on her, how everyone disappoints her blah blah....

I would not recommend this book and will not purchase anything else by her
