Book Review – Superpower

Book Review of The Self-Love Superpower

Book: “The Self-Love SuperpowerThe Magical Art of Approving of Yourself (No Matter What),” Tess WhitehurstLlewellyn Worldwide, Ltd., 2021.

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

Book Available September 8, 2021

I was quite interested in recognizing how self-love could be a superpower simply by approving of myself/yourself. Overall, I found the author to be quite knowledgeable about many spiritual and psychological matters. I found she has incorporated many works from previous authors that I have read and whose books I have previously reviewed. It was nice to see these concepts being congealed in such a well-developed way.

I believe the author to be quite young as her references indicate someone of a younger age. This is not a problem other than many of the cultural and societal references she discussed were not in my sphere of knowledge or influence. So, for that reason, I would recommend this book for younger or middle-aged people.

One of the best insights or lines she has is, “I am choosing to need nothing, expect nothing, and even be nothing. And so I am open to everything.” She goes on to say how liberating it is to have this kind of thought. This is in line with Buddhist philosophy of non-attachment.

Overall, she does come up with some very good ideas but again, they are ones I have read in many other books but it is nice to see it collated here as an inclusive manner.

Tess also goes over chakras which for me was just a review. It seems most books I pick up nowadays include something about the chakra system. If you are new to this, then definitely read this.

Overall, I would give this book a 4 out of 5 based on the attempt to have a cohesive nature of spiritual philosophies and ideas in one book.

Profound Little Animated Video

This is very impactful – affected my soul on a deep level. It is more profound in less than 5 minutes than an entire 3 hour Hollywood blockbuster.

It is called “The Life of Death” by Marsha Onderstijn.

It was so heart-breaking but beautiful. It brought tears to my eyes. Thanks to Marsha Onderstijn for being inspired to create it and Ramon de Wilde for the music.

Life is Precious!

Book Review: Electromagnetism

Book: “Electric Body, Electric Health: Using the Electromagnetism Within (And Around) You to Rewire, Recharge, and Raise Your Voltage,” Eileen Day McKusick, St. Martin’s Essential, 2020

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

Book available: January 26, 2021

I found this book literally in a way that others have spoken about when a book falls out of the shelf in a book store. It just kind of jumps out at you and you feel compelled to look at it and read it. This happened to me but in an electronic and digital kind of way. I was perusing books to review next from the selected options and this one just popped up on my website page. It literally was not there a moment ago and then it was there. It was as if Divine intervention had helped me along my path.

It is interesting that its sub-title is saying the same kind of thing – that using the electromagnetism within and around you can and does affect you and your life.

I was absolutely mesmerized by the first half the book. I found incredible insights and meanings. For example, I always assumed there was only three states of matter being solid, liquid and gas but Eileen explains there is a fourth state called plasma and that it is an electrically charged gas taking up 99.99 percent of space which connects stars, planets and galaxies in webs of light. That is phenomenally important news. She reviews recent science information to support her work.

Most importantly, Eileen Day McKusick, has mapped out the body with varying levels of information stored in it. She uses tuning forks to smooth out and change blocked passages of information found in the energetic fields around our body.

I think one of the healthiest and most important pieces of advice she gives is the point that “This is the single greatest trick to being high voltage to not judge or suppress any of your emotions but rather to seek to mange them appropriately.” This means, we have to deal with problems as they will not magically go away on their own. To flow through it and get to the other side, you need to deal with emotions, problems and issues.

Eileen has taught many other people how to work on people’s energetic fields with tuning forks. People like Dr. John Gray who is author of “Men are From Mars and Women are From Venus,” along with Marci Shimoff who is author of “Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul” both have taken courses from her and support her work.

She has previously published “Tuning the Human Biofield: Healing with Vibrational Sound Therapy” in September 2014. She has an informative website with her name – https://www.eileenmckusick.com. Further, she has a store that sells her specifically designed tuning forks at her website – https://biofieldtuningstore.com.

The only issue I had with the book was the second half was when she was going into the various chakras. Honestly, my reaction was “Oh Great! Another chakra book.” Having said that, Eileen was able to show she has been working and mapping the energetic body field well because there was quite a few insights into the various respective chakra areas that made a lot of logical sense in the problems and issues people were dealing with.

I give this book a 4.25 out of 5 for a rating. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in self-healing or wanting to “increase their voltage” so that they can be a more positive force in their life and that of the world around them.

Oozing Pain

Oozing Pain

This photograph is for those people who have suffered abuse, neglect or trauma. It is for all those who have been in personal pain for their problems and issues. It is a close-up picture I took of a cactus. I have added an effect so that the cuts in the cactus represents the blood cuts of the body or soul which is oozing pain. 

The only way the person can protect him/herself is by growing sharp needles or jagged spikes. That is the way some people deal with emotional, physical, sexual, mental or spiritual trauma. I wish everyone the ability to deal with their problems and issues as best they can when appropriate and when capable and able to do so. This is my desire, wish and prayer for all of us growing to the next level. If we ask for help from the Angels, Archangels and God or whatever you consider your Higher Power, we can find help.

Dream Big

Audiobook: “Dream Big: Know What You Want, Why You Want It, and What You’re Going to Do About It,” Bob Goff, Nelson Books, 2020

Audiobook Review by Mary Mikawoz

Book and audiobook available: July 23, 2020

It has been a long time since I have listened to an audiobook as I usually read paper copies or digital books. I used to frequently and regularly listen to Compact Discs when I was driving to work and back. I had quite the trek and so I was trying to use my time more efficiently and effectively.

The book by Bob Goff is a faith-based book about Jesus and God. Although it is religious, it is spiritual in thought. It is about your relationship to God and how you manifest/transform it in real life.

Bob Goff has had an interesting life from being lawyer to an advocate for children’s safety and well-being. He tells an interesting story of trying to save a 11 year old girl from sex slavery twice in India and the consequences of his good intent.

He has lived an interesting life and seems to follow through on his own advice with getting his pilot’s license, a motorcycle license after he drove the bike across North America and also starting and rebuilding for the second time a lodge in Canada after it burnt down. He has a loving wife and family.

I think the advice he gives is a combination between common sense and prudent advice. This book is especially suited towards younger people especially those in their 20s and 30s who are starting out in life and struggling. It may even apply to 40s, 50s and beyond if people are facing mid-life challenges and are looking for inspiration.

I found it to be a thoughtful book with some very interesting stories told by Bob Goff.

I give this book a 4 out of 5 based on the information written in a friendly, non-judgemental way. Aside from the audio book, it is available as a digital book and paperback as well.

In Clover

In Clover

I took this photograph in our yard. It is incredible how such small, beautiful plants and flowers can add so much to green grass. 

I learned today that the expression “In Clover” means prosperity and living well. It means financial abundance and having good fortune. I wish this for people around the world as we are all one and what affects one, affects us all.

Growth After

Growth After – Drawing & Digital Art by Mary Mikawoz

Growth After

I was reading a book or listening to an audiobook. I forget now but the purpose of the drawing is to indicate that when we grow, we develop our minds and the fruits or in this case, flowers or a garden, begin to grow. It can be growth mentally, physically, emotionally or spiritually. 

I have put a person meditating and coming to some realizations and therefore is producing amazing thought patterns which manifest in reality. She is vibrant and beautiful. I have included a rainbow of colours to illustrate the fullness of her/our abilities.

Heart Beat

Mikawoz Heart Beat

Heart Beat

This is a drawing and digital artwork of a Heart Beat. It is becoming 3D with the effects of a pulse and blood coursing through the arteries of this abstract heart. It is living and enjoying life as it automatically beats throughout the day of our lives. There is vibrancy and soul within its orbit like a heart beat is to a musical set of notes.

Beginning and End

Mikawoz Beginning and End

Beginning and End

I took this photograph of this beautiful flower both at its bud stage up top and in full bloom below. It is like living on this Earth, end of life is happening for some while birth and new life is happening for some. Others in various stages of the in-between life. I like the contrast in stages. There is spiritual meaning in this photograph.

I AM Female

Mikawoz I AM Female

I AM Female

As a survivor of child sexual abuse and sexual harassment as an adult, I am releasing and forgiving those who hurt me in inappropriate ways. I am part of the “Me Too” movement and did not have the guts to say anything a few years ago when most people were coming out about what happened to them.

I love and accept my body exactly as I am even though people have hurt me in ways that should not be forgivable but now are.

The physical body is beautiful and is a sanctuary for our spiritual soul. I have survived despite what has happened to me. I love who I am and who I have become. I celebrate who I am – as a soul having a physical experience on this Earth.
