Review: The Temples of Light by Danielle Rama Hoffman

The Temples of Light by Danielle Rama Hoffman
Genre: Non-Fiction
Publisher: Bear & Company
Paperback: 256 pages
Rating: 4 / 5

Synopsis: Danielle Rama Hoffman opens up sacred rites of passage that historically have been kept secret to forge a relationship with the temples of Egypt as allies and spirit guides. For example, the temple of Sakkara is associated with abundance; the temple of Abydos with remembering. The initiations in this book awaken intuition and the Sahu--the fully realized self--allowing connections to the power, magic, and wisdom of such sacred symbols as the Flower of Life, the Djed Pillar (the backbone of Osiris), the Ka, and the energy body. Hoffman’s guided meditations, rituals, and exercises also raise the reader’s vibration level, as we move from the Piscean to the Aquarian age. Embodying the wisdom of the open heart of these temples imparts a shift in consciousness from fear to bliss, from powerlessness to empowerment, opening the body, mind, and spirit to the infinite possibilities within. The book also includes a 50-minute CD of a guided journey of the Sphinx.

My Thoughts: Although I usually dont have much faith in things of this nature I would still like to say I have an open mind and am not totally against it either. This was very interesting reading and I feel I learned alot of knowledge on ancient Egypt and the exercises were totally great!  I must add that although I am somewhat of a sceptic, some of the exercises I did from the book put me in a peacful position and I plan on doing them again! A well written and easy to follow book!
