Summary

Sierra is a successful real estate agent living a comfortable life. But she has a secret so painful that she has erected emotional walls around her heart that block anyone from getting close.

Then the dreams begin. In one, Sierra is running from the sound of dogs barking and men chasing her in the darkness; in another, she’s in a field, lashes coming down on her back; in many, she is a woman of faith named Dorothy, fighting for civil rights. Sierra tries to ignore the dreams and continue with life as usual—but the more she disregards them , the longer and deeper she sleeps, and soon the long nights begin to affect her work and sanity. Finally, she seeks the help she needs.

The more she works to understand the nature of and reason for her dreams, the more freedom Sierra feels in her own life. Doors to relationships with other people open. She meets a client that could be the love of her life. And soon, she has a decision to make: she can be who she has always been, living in fear; or she can be Dorothy, allow the dreams to show her who she really is, reconnect with God, and fill the void in her spirit.

    What is meditation? In this book we will try to explain the answer to this question. By reading through our 33 mediation tips, you will gain a better understanding of how to find your inner self. Along the way, you can follow our instructions on various ways to enter a state of meditation. 
    Whilst meditation may look as though you are doing nothing, you are actually performing a very difficult art that takes plenty of focus, concentration, determination, and persistence. Meditation takes practice, just as in any other sports, such as swimming. You will need to learn how to do it and the better you get, the more fulfilling is the reward. Do not confuse meditation with religion. It is about the spiritual aspect of your inner being, even though some practices talk about the Divine. However, it is an art that you can use for yourself, so you are a better person and will be at peace with your inner self. In reality, we are all alone in the vastness of the universe or multiverses, within the darkness and the light. Step forward and be a strong individual, by learning techniques that will make you unafraid of anything. Meditation is being at peace with your inner self, and therefore at peace with your environment. 
    In this book we will try to explain these techniques, practices, and ideas that are related to meditation: 
    -Breathing techniques 
    -Exercise techniques, such as yoga and Tai Chi 
    -Group Mediation 
    -Simple stretching and relaxation techniques 
    -And even full moon meditation guidance
