Book Review: “The Love of the Universe” by Leanne Margaret

“The Love of the Universe: Initiating Principles of Living Energy in a Creatively Evolving Universe.” by Leanne Margaret

Rating:  *****

Genre:  Self Help/New Age

Read:  June 2019

Whether working through a specific trauma, searching for your place within the universe, or simply trying to manage daily life, this easy to read, and thoughtfully written guide, is designed to help the reader navigate their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual planes to arrive at a better place.

The book exams each level of awareness (referred to as Dimensions by Margaret), and provides a series of affirmations and exercises that can be modified to suit individual needs. You don’t need to be a “new age type” to get the benefit from this book. In fact there is no pressure for you to believe, be or do anything. It really is about you.

I must admit that I am the type of person that binge reads a book from cover to cover, and you can certainly do this with this offering. However, this is a book to be savoured and read through at your own leisure. It is a text you will find yourself returning to time and time again.

“The Love of the Universe” by Leanne Margaret is must for those seeking a gentle, no-pressure, mediative approach to resting the body and healing the mind. It is life-affirming and offers a reassuring hand-up. Well worth the investment.

You can get your copy through Amazon, or a bookstore new you.

More rejections and moving on

Errgh. I’m feeling a bit like Rosie the Robot from the Jetsons at the moment. I’ve had nine rejections in three months. Okay, these were for different six different pieces of work, and three of them were for competitions (I count not being short listed as a rejection as it means that I my work didn’t meet the required standard). I should be mighty pleased with myself because I had items to submit, and I actually made the effort to put them out there.

Also, the rejections I got from journals and publishers were very supportive. Gone are the days when I don’t hear at all, or get the standard one-liner email. I actually get some useful advice and suggests. It’s taken me a number of years to get to this stage, and thanks to the support from friends, fellow writers, the Ladybird’s Facebook writers group, and all of those good folk who’ve rejected my work.

I’m prepared to move on up into the next phase of writing. Time to stop feeling sorry for myself, reflect on the good advice I’ve received, and review those pieces and projects.

And don’t you give up either!
