Conscious Footsteps: Finding Spirit in Everyday Matters by Dianne Eppler Adams is a unique find in the world of books on spirituality. Dianne draws upon her own heightened awareness and her experience as an astrologist to bring an entirely new, refreshing perspective to books on spirituality.

Conscious Footsteps: Finding Spirit in Everyday Matters is a self-help book in that it does help highlight practices you could now be doing to help you and the world around you to achieve better balance and happiness.

Adams recognizes we are going through difficult times and acknowledges that more of the same is likely, but she shows ways, such as focusing on the positive or helping with a charity, to get through these times. As she aptly points out the key to surviving these times is to take the focus off of ourselves and put it on someone, or something else.

Another thing Adams emphasizes is the fact it is better to say nothing at all than to tell even a “white lie.” She uses the example of someone asking us how we are and the fact we almost invariably reply with “fine.” Adams points out that it’s better to say nothing than to answer that you are fine if you aren’t. Don’t be rude or anything, just come up with a true, but non-committal answer.

Adams also strongly emphasizes out uniqueness and how important our opinion is, even when it differs from that of the world around us. Voicing our opinion can help other see another side of things and may help bring balance, or a better resolution to a situation. She also points out that we need to honor ourselves in our lives, opinions, relationships and interactions with others and the world around us. We need to find ways to both give and receive in our relationships so we can be fulfilled and have an inner well of strength to draw on. We need to not allow fear to hold us back. That only brings about more fear and a constriction in the natural flow of things.

I’m giving away way too much of Dianne’s book, but let me point out that these examples are only a very small portion of the life-changing examples of Adams work and these are all in the first few chapters. Also, you can use the book as a daily reference – or whenever you want/need to – just pop it open to a page and apply that point for the rest of the day. It works great.

What follows is an excerpt from Conscious Footsteps: Finding Spirit in Everyday Matters:

“I remind myself that I did not create myself. Therefore, I am not the beginning and end of the strength on which I can call to manage my life. I frequently call on Spirit during the day with an inner thought or wish or prayer. I ask for strength when I feel weak. I ask for clarity when I am confused. I ask for patience when I am frustrated.

The operation of Spirit is not something I fully understand, but I trust it. I consider it humorous that, with our little brains, we think we might understand the vast wisdom of Spirit. For this reason, I believe all religions and belief systems are only partially true. All mystics, seers, and prophets see part of the Truth but not the Whole Truth. They are trying to access the Truth with a puny (relatively speaking) instrument called “the human mind.”

When I am fearful, I call on the strength that comes from beyond me and trust that Spirit is handling everything.”yet, but it has plenty of promise. It also offers a new way of looking at old things that opens you up to new possibilities instead of keeping you closed off in the same old patterns.

While unusual and not of a topic usually covered in our Pigeon reviews this book sits to the golden side of the nest. It’s not laying golden eggs
