Just then, Maya, Mistress of Illusion, and Director of Heavenly Special Effects, happens by, and agrees to stage an elaborate game of enchantment that would provide a forum for you and your angel buddies to learn on earth, and sets the game in a beautiful setting called “The Magical Theater.”
She waves her golden wand to weave a magic spell, causing you and your angel buddies to forget everything you know about the perfection of the universe, including the perfection of yourself…then sends you down to earth with a thud. The game is to break the spell of enchantment, and in order to do that, you must remember your divine perfection and live the truth of your magnificence.
This is the fantastic stage for the new book “Dreaming Down Heaven,” a beautifully executed offering of magical realism from author, Gini Gentry, who studied and taught for years side-by-side with NY Times bestselling author of “The Four Agreements” Don Miguel Ruiz.
In chapter 1, 35-year-old Gigi Lenox, a New York career girl who loves beautiful shoes and good wine, finds herself at a spectacularly low point in her life when she loses her job and her husband. She stumbles across an old dusty tome in a book store entitled “Dreaming Down Heaven” and lays down on the couch in her lonely apartment to read – with a fabulous bottle of wine, of course…
The dreamtime adventure that ensues, a spiritual journey through a mystical world of magical encounters, tests, and miracles, reads like “Harry Potter” for the “Eat, Pray, Love” crowd (or, in Gini’s own words, “think Carrie Bradshaw meets Carlos Castaneda over Cosmic Cosmopolitans.”)
We learn along with Gigi Lenox the 12 Keystones – secrets to happiness, as she navigates the tests assigned to her in the Magical Theatre. Will Gigi break the spell and awaken to her true nature? Will she finally stop feeling “less-than”? Will she stop looking for love in all the wrong places? Will she find a way to forgive the many wrongs she’s suffered? Will she discover how to make the right choices for her most brilliant path?
I read the entire book, actually 2 books-in-one, at night in bed over a couple of weeks, and loved the way it made me feel before falling asleep. Spending time with Gigi in the “Magical Theater” (a realm where anything can happen if you open to the possibilities) just before heading into dreamtime myself, had the gentle effect of opening immense possibilities in my own heart. Almost like a meditation every evening, in that delicious relaxed state it became second nature to imagine being an angel on a great earthly adventure…
Dreaming Down Heaven is a contemporary spiritual guide in which the author merges her wisdom and vast experience with Toltec training with humor and incredible imagination to invite us to wake up to our authentic selves. It’s a true feel-good read, with a strong message for all angels here on earth to remember who we really are, step up to our most magnificent story, and yes, dream down heaven, please!
Dreaming Down Heaven will officially be released on September 29th. I know you’ll love it as much as I did.
