Play With a Purpose!
Doodle (doo-dal) v. To scribble while thinking about
something else, or nothing. To put the left brain "on hold".
That's exactly what Spiritual Doodles & Mental Leapfrogs does. Through a wide variety of over 50 light-hearted and engaging exercises, Revoir helps us to stop judging and start expressing ourselves as we consciously reconnect to the Spirit within. She warns that the extremely creative approach of the book's play exercises, or "plexercises", might make the left part of our brain uncomfortable. But she encourages us to try them anyway because; "When we use the right brain we bring balance to our thought process, which expands our emotional, creative, and spiritual resources."
The book's fun and interactive "plexercises" are designed to help embody and personalize important spiritual principles or lessons. Here are just a few examples of the nuggets of spiritual wisdom that readers will discover among the playful pages of Spiritual Doodles & Mental Leapfrogs...
Invite Your Expressive Child Out to Play- As we get older, we sometimes lose the voice of the expressive child inside us that still longs to play and be creative. When we listen to this voice, we can approach our self-expression with a greater sense of balance and authenticity, making it easier to unleash our unique and divine spark.
Finding and Following Your Dreams- We have a choice (ALWAYS!): to end up with the satisfaction of going for them, or the regret of letting them slip away. When we make it a priority to take even the smallest action on fulfilling our dreams, it allows us to keep the momentum moving forward.
Faith is a Mental Attitude- We seek spiritual awareness in order to feel peaceful and connected with Spirit. Faith grows in direct proportion to our experience of Oneness. When we operate from the conviction that we are connected with Spirit, we have an intuitive feeling of peace, calm, and mental balance. This by-product of faith is called grace. The more we live in faith, the more grace we experience.
Our Thoughts- We live in a cause and effect Universe. What we think becomes form. This is a simplistic yet powerful spiritual truth. If we keep our consciousness focused on positive and peaceful thoughts, we will attract positive and peaceful things. We can't operate outside our belief system.
Forgiveness- It is important to ask ourselves whether we really want to experience peace in our heart, or whether we are getting more out of blaming other people for our feeling of powerlessness, our pain, and our resentment.
Spiritual Doodles & Mental Leapfrogs is far more than just another book about spirituality. It is an interactive and engaging experience specifically designed to reconnect us with the Spirit within. By fully engaging in its fun and playful process, your sense of awe, creativity, and self-discovery can't help but be awakened.
Lack of art training is a BONUS! So what are you waiting for?
