Spirituality has become a major component of life for millions of people around the world. Whether it comes from an organized religion or a natural journey of the self, spirituality has affected so many people, especially the concept of the human soul. As Emily Dickinson once said, “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul – and sings the tunes without the words – and never stops at all.”
In author Maria Garay Reynolds’s On the Wings of My Dragonfly, the author relays a story of the soul. What begins as a simple memory of a great-grandmother spending time with her great-grandson turns into a harmonious journey into the soul as the narrator reflects on a family-born ability to communicate with spirits. Exploring the concept of spirituality and the connection we have with the universe itself, the author delves into subjects that range from auras and forms of astral projection to our connection to the Higher Self; this is a book that is not to be missed.
This is a short yet powerful read. The author does a great job of conveying a sense of hope and wonder into the narrative, reflecting on some pretty amazing concepts which navigate the lines between belief, imagination and consciousness as a whole. The writing is memorable and open-ended, allowing the reader to delve into the author’s words as deeply as they desire. Weaving real-world concepts that have grown in both scientific study and spirituality such as life being connected to energy, meditation, and even what sounds like astral projection, as when the narrator describes memories in childhood riding a dragonfly through the cosmos. This book is a creative journey into the heart of oneself.
