Amazing Book Spotlight- The Soul Searcher's Handbook
This is one of the first books I picked up on my journey and I think it’s absolutely one of my favourites. This how to book just made me want to devour everything. I constantly go back to this book and even bought it for a friend of mine.
The Soul Searcher’s Handbook is straight forward and 100% easy to comprehend. Trust me once you start talking about numerology, different yoga poses, and auras you need to slow down and digest it properly or else your head starts to hurt. At least mine does anyways.
So what does it cover?
This 200+ page book covers a whole range of topics. It really helps to connect with you and you really learn a lot about yourself. There are 3 sections to the book. They focus on your body, mind and spirit. Each section is broken down and talks about topics such as:
- Feng shui
- Your guides
Part 1: Healthy Body
This section really wants you to connect with your body. It teaches you to slow down and really connect. Emma Mildon really breaks things down to give you all the tools that are necessary. There are lists on diverse holistic practices such as Homeopaths and Reflexology. There is a focus on different yoga poses (which I really should focus on- flexibility is key). Did you know that there are actually different styles of yoga and forms of meditation? Yep she’s got that in there too.
There is an entire chapter on crystals! Yay! I am sorry not sorry about that. I really do love crystals. She goes really in depth about the colours of them, uses, connection with chakras, how to care for them and where to keep them in your house. It’s quite cool actually.
My big takeaway of the first part of the book is that there are just so many different aspects and directions I could take. I really felt after reading this part that world is at my finger tips. Some people could say that it leads to more questions than answers and that may be true, but that is the great thing about it. I love that when it comes to spirituality you really can't hit a wall, because there is just so much to learn. This book does not go into detail in any one direction, but it does give you a starting point.
Part 2: Awakened Mind
This section is all about the mind. This was my favourite section. I really wanted to open my mind to a lot of different things. This section goes through things such as dream analysis, astrology and my favourite- numerology. I love numerology. The concept of things being predetermined because of numbers fascinates me. I can’t wait to talk about it in another post.
When it comes down to it, if you are willing to open your mind up and accept that there is just so much out there for us to learn about then you will be surprised to see what you can find. I love thinking that there is more to this universe then we can even imagine and as much as I believe in free will (which I do, but it is a very complex subject), I like to think there is a bit of fate behind it all, which is why I find astrology and numerology so fascinating.
Part 3: Vibrant Spirit
Want to connect more to spirit guides, or animal guides? Maybe you need to work on protecting yourself and your spirit? Or maybe you would like to learn more about tarot cards, guided meditations and other topics to connect your soul to the universe? Then this is the section for you!
This last section is about the thing we forget about the most in our day to day lives- our spirit. Actually if we’re being honest, we probably take advantage and forget about all 3 of these topics. We really should make more of an effort to put us first and I really do think that this book will help. It is one of my favourites.
This section talks about how your guides communicate with you through numbers, tarot, meditations and even pendulums. It even talks about past lives. This whole book is all about opening yourself up to new things and that is especially true of this section. This section is not for everyone, but it has the potential to be. I will admit when I first bought this book, I think I glanced over this section. Since then I have read it several times. It is well worth the second read and third and fourth!

Crystal of the day- Kyanite
Looking for a stone that doesn't retain negative energy? Then Kyanite is just for you! It never needs cleansing! This stone (actually it is more of a mineral) is great to have on hand when you need to settle arguments as it helps you to be fair and inspires you to be loyal when times are tough.
