Adventures of an Everyday Mystic
Robin L. Reichert
James Twyman, NY Times Bestselling Author and Peace Troubadour says:
"In this wonderful collection of personal stories, Robin Reichert demonstrates that the place to cultivate peace is within and the way to get there may be guided by unseen, Divine forces in nature when you open your heart to receive. She reminds us that we are part of rather than above nature and gives examples of how nature can act as a teacher when we grow into cooperative relationship with it. Robin writes with warmth and vulnerability and shares wisdom gained from a life well-lived."
Much of what we experience as human beings cannot be explained or proven by common scientific methods. Thousands of people connect with spirits, experience strange "coincidences," invoke healing, and interact with angelic beings, often called super-natural events. Prayer and focused thoughts affect change and the human vessel is discovered to have extraordinary powers when working in cooperative relationship with Divine Mother Earth. These phenomena remain controversial and thousands of people are afraid to talk about it for fear of ridicule. Robin Reichert was one of those people.
Here is the journey of a woman, once frightened of life, whose persistent faith and interaction with nature altered her perspective. Unseen forces revealed wonders and surprises that changed Robin's world. After half a lifetime of holding back and keeping her experiences private, she found courage to share her personal stories and discovered others who confided their own encounters with the unexplainable, often referred to as the miraculous. Some chapters are peppered with remarkable stories shared with Robin as she opened to characteristic yet frequently unrecognized mysteries of the Earth. The stories may sound fanciful, weird, or strange to some, while for thousands it may free you to tell your own stories.
Born into a limited religious paradigm as the daughter of a Methodist minister and a mother who held such mysterious experiences suspect, Robin developed a strong faith and intimate relationship with the Divine in Nature that urged her to seek answers to questions mainstream religion could not offer. At once inspired by spiritual traditions of Native American friends, her uncle's near-death experience, and study of various sacred texts, Robin walked through a mysterious door leading to unimagined adventure.
Follow along as Robin's relationship to her first spiritual teacher, Jesus, evolves in a unique way, strengthening her as she welcomes teachings from many other traditions and receives the gifts Mother Earth so generously offers. Her outlook opens into an expansive view of the natural rhythms of Mother Earth - knowledge that is crucial not only to our ultimate survival but also to our day to day lives.
