Blessings: Prayers and Declarations for a Heartful Life By Julia Cameron

Blessings: Prayers and Declarations for a Heartful Life
By Julia Cameron

‘Most of us have no idea of our real creative height. We are much more gifted than we know.’ ~ Julia Cameron

“Blessings” 5 stars “I love this book. It is very uplifting and gives me hope. Julia Cameron has such a way of putting words together. She paints pictures with words. Beautiful.”

“Good one!” 5 stars “A wonderful book with many wonderful “blessings” selections to read aloud and share. A friend uses this regularly before guided meditations. Selections are short and sweet.”

“perfect level of spirituality” 5 stars “This is JC at her best. This little book is not preachy but fresh in its approach on all angles of life, with easy reading in a pleasant format. I bought it for myself when I was going thru some tough emotional times several years ago, and still keep it around to read a page from here and there, just for perspective. More recently, I bought it for someone dear to me who has just gone thru a divorce. It’s uplifting and genuine in its gentle message.” Amazon customer reviews.
