Spiritually minded readers will soak up the almost-lyrical devotion Millot evinces: “Life is like a symphony whose tempo adapts to the passing of time,” she writes, “this great journey that transforms matter into a trail of powder.” To prompt self-awareness, she describes the persona of each angel (Michael displays a natural authority, while Uriel is the “mature child” who will elicit a sense of magic in life) and outlines the process of “light coaching”—14 structured letters, each written to one of the four archangels, to prompt progressive growth towards the goal of empowerment and wholeness. Millot includes sample letters to crystallize her guidance, and key elements to address in each one, all welcome additions given the complexity of her subject.
Though this can be a challenging theme to share and fully comprehend—Millot acknowledges the judgment of others has interfered at times with her own understanding—her passion and desire to help is evident throughout this guide. Cautioning that “spirituality is supposed to be an environment of tolerance and love,” Millot’s advice is warm and intimate, a comforting balance of abstract and precise. She closes the book with a helpful listing of requests readers can make of the archangels, along with situation-specific instructions,and gentle encouragement to “go forward without fear.
Takeaway: An inviting how-to for believers on communicating with archangels.
