BOOK TALK: THE CELESTINE PROPHECY BY JAMES REDFIELD

By seeing the beauty in every face, we lift others into their wisest self and increase the chances of hearing a synchronistic message.

The Celestine Prophecy is exactly what the cover says it will be; an adventure. Written by James Redfield (the master of blowing minds), we follow a mysterious, unnamed, middle-aged man through the journey of a lifetime.

So, there’s this ancient manuscript from 600 BC discovered in Peru, right? This manuscript contains nine masterful insights that tell us humans how to reach a mass spiritual awakening. Basically, we follow our mystery man through Peru as he uncovers all nine insights and, slowly but surely, begins his spiritual awakening. Oh, and he’s also trying to escape the wrath of the Peruvian government throughout this whole expedition. Why? Well, the government is full of close-minded goons who are afraid the insights will “challenge the completeness of their religion.” Crazy, I know.

Since The Celestine Prophecy is our (Taylor + Kylee) favorite book, we decided to co-write this post and describe our favorite insight to you!

KYLEE’S FAVORITE INSIGHT – #4An unconscious competition for energy underlies all conflicts. By dominating or manipulating others, we get the extra energy we think we need. Sure, it feels good – but both parties are damaged in the conflict. 

This insight really makes you question how you carry yourself daily. Basically, everyone has a ‘control drama‘ that they use to manipulate and steal energy from people around them. There are 4 categories of dramas; the intimidator, the interrogator, the aloof + the poor me. After a lot of contemplation, I discovered that I am aloof. I have the tendency to withdraw and be secretive when someone else is trying to speak with me. The more I remain vague, the more people will dig and try to get answers. That digging is the source of my energy. While it is very unintentional on my part, it is amazingly accurate. Each drama has a different way of stealing energy, and once you dive into the book, you’ll be able to figure out your own and work on finding a different energy source.

TAYLOR’S FAVORITE INSIGHT – #1 : Feeling restless? You’re not alone: Everybody’s starting to look for more meaning in life. Start paying closer attention to those seemingly ‘chance coincidences’ – strange occurrences that feel like they were meant to happen. They are actually synchronistic events, and following them will start you on your path to spiritual truth.

Our dad was who urged us to read this book – he said if everyone on Earth read this book at the same time, there would be one big powerful shift of consciousness across all cultures. So of course I was inclined to get my hands on it. After reading this insight, it is impossible to not be mindful of the little things; prolonged eye contact, bumping into a stranger, an old friend reaching out to catch up, the little feelings of instinctual wisdom flirting with your inner + outer senses. Feeling like you are in the right place at the right time + experiencing the universe work its magic on you – – – nothing beats that.

The Celestine Prophecy Book Talk:

+ What is your control drama?

+ What was the last ‘chance happening’ that you experienced that lead to something life-changing?

+ Which insight did you resonate with most?

+ What do YOU think happened to the Mayans?

– Naturally inspired. Locally aware. Universally beautiful. With love, Tay + Ky.
