Enlightenment may not be as unreachable as you think. Author and shaman Ross Bishop writes: Life is not about becoming something different than you already are. Life is about finding out that it s safe to let go of what you re not - of all the protective things you cling to that hold you back. You are already the magnificent being you are becoming. The evolution is in your consciousness. Your learning the truth is the crux of the transformational process called enlightenment. The difficulty comes in letting go of your limiting beliefs, so that you can be free to be who you truly are. Most of us are afraid that if we let go of who we think we are, we will be left naked and alone out in the cold. In Journey to Enlightenment, Bishop provides a most insightful perspective on why things in life happen as they do and what you can do about them. He explains why you created your beliefs, how they get in your way and more importantly, he offers effective techniques for healing the hurt that lies beneath them, including a clearly explained, and easily presented, version of the ancient shamanic journey process, to help you move closer to enlightenment. Ross discusses a host of other topics including an interesting perspective on why it is difficult to change, living in the God Space, dealing with entities, The Misunderstanding, past lives and an entire chapter on learning to work with the power of gratitude.

There are two kinds of Shaman. Some people have a gift and study for years to develop that gift into a healing art. Ross Bishop is what is called a natural Shaman, someone who seems to have been born blessed with a gift for healing. He is also blessed with an ability to take complex matters and explain them clearly so that they can be easily understood. Ross has brought the core of the ancient traditions of Shamanism into an approachable form and outlines practices that can be easily used and understood by Western people. In a former life, Ross was president of an advertising agency and a communications executive in Minneapolis. Later with a colleague he founded Creative Power Workshops and traveled the country teaching creative thinking to advertising writers and art directors. Seeing the limitations fear placed on people's creative passion led Ross to undertake a personal spiritual journey in search of answers. That journey covered many miles, years and brought him to some important teachers. Finding answers, Ross also found his natural Shamanic gift for healing. He returned to this country and conducted vision quests for spiritual pilgrims throughout the Southwestern United States. He has written three books: Healing the Shadow, Truth and Journey to Enlightenment. Today he concentrates his energies on writing and on an active teaching and counseling practice in Charlottesville, Virginia.Review:
GET READY TO COVER A LOT OF GROUND! Ross Bishop has been there and back again. He's taken the hits, wound up in the ditches, and seen the high side, all for a price: to find his way along the path. In his case a path that led him to discover that he is a natural healer, a shaman. To our good fortune he is also one of those compassionate beings that realizes that spreading the word of what he learned helps us all and the planet we so precariously live on. Ross has a knack for explaining things, always a helpful attribute. Our Universe is complex, a gazillion learning experiences happening simultaneously, all guiding us along our path. We sometimes need help along this path and Journey To Enlightenment can fill this need. A wealth of information is offered to us in this book. Some of it the kind one must go over several times to ingest. I noticed right from the start that this is going to become an importance reference book in a lot of people s lives. To his benefit, Ross has endowed this book with an easy to follow format: principles we can gather and begin to assimilate and an index to help us find our way back to particularly meaningful bits. I am always delighted when authors pull quotes from knowledgeable sources and then expound on them or use them to guide us to an important junction. Ross calls on the likes of Ghandi, Rumi, Ramana Maharshi, Juan Ramon Jimenez, Clarissa Pinkola Estes, and Black Elk to name just a few. He uses stories where they do a particularly good job of illustrating his point. The best of these being Steve Job s infamous, Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish commencement address at Stanford. So, where can this book take it's readers? Pretty much anywhere you want to go, but most importantly to find what Bishop calls the God Space. The work involved is not easy, and it will take time. But as you work thru his suggestions and exercises dealing with your inner child, entities that may have attached themselves to you or past lives that need to be visited you will little by little, or in astonishing leaps find your way. Remember, as Principle No. One states LOVE EVERYTHING. Just imagine how far that could take you towards your own personal God Space. --Donna Coomer, Between The Lines Reviews
