Low on funds (and room) for a new book to read, I searched my bookshelves for an old book to re-read. And, what a nice find! It's Hot Chocolate for the Mystical Soul: 101 True Stories of Angels, Miracles, and Healings, a collection edited by Arielle Ford.
The stories are grouped by categories which include "Mystical Places, Magical Moments," "Divine Guidance and Inner Direction," "Romances of the Soul," "Spiritual Healing," "Help from Above," "Vision," and "The Other Side." The stories run the gamut from very personal visionary experiences to recollections of extraordinary situations that occurred to several people. It's also very easy to read.
To be honest, I think I enjoyed the stories that included other people's experiences besides the authors' because some of the personal visionary stuff was a little hard to relate to in some instances. It's like when someone tells you their dream -- they may have been very moved by it, but you may have a hard time relating because the symbolism is very personal. Still, if you want to measure your own visionary experiences against some other people's, this may be a good book for you. All in all, if you have a mystical bent, this is a terrific book to pick up.
