In this enlightening book, internationally renowned psychic, coach and author Elsabe Smit breaks down some key concepts of spiritual development into short, highly accessible articles, and provides ways in which the reader can achieve spiritual growth. Inspired by a lifetime of facing sometimes seemingly insurmountable challenges, including drug and alcohol addiction of loved ones, an abusive marriage and other challenges, Elsabe examines the subtle nuances that influence our lives, and explores these age-old questions: Why are we born? What is the purpose of our lives? Is there life after death? Drawing on elements of quantum physics, plus works by some of the world's most prominent researchers and gurus in the fields of health, business and relationships, Elsabe will help you to understand the ancient mystery of Love. She will help you to regain control of your life and, using spiritual concepts, make sense of life's daily challenges. All life experiences, whether you label them as 'good' or 'bad', are simply stepping stones on a journey towards finding self-acceptance and compassion. In this highly practical guide to modern day spirituality, Elsabe shares her life experiences and wealth of knowledge gained over many years both on this plane and in psychic work.
