Book Review: Pebbles in the Pond

I have to admit that when I first started reading Pebbles in the Pond, I was reading it from a very intellectual perspective. I was simply reading it to review it. Then something happened two-thirds of the way through the book that changed all that. But, I will get to that in a minute.

First, about the book.

Pebbles in the Pond: Transforming the World One Person at a Time is a compilation of stories of healers and energy workers who have ‘been there done that’. They each tell their story, and what they are now doing to help transform the world, by being the proverbial ripple in the pond.

At first, I found the wide range of story telling styles — from deeply personal to more clinical — disconcerting. In fact, the really clinical ones turned me off. I am a deeply personal type of gal myself.

But, then it happened. I had one frig of a bad week. It was like I was being psychically attacked from every which way. I was left raw and dazed, struggling to figure out what my life lesson was.

As I was figuring it out, I picked up Pebbles again to finish off my commitment to reviewing it. Wait a second! That one sentence resonates in that story. Holy crumpet, in this other story, the author was left raw and dazed too.

In actual fact, Pebbles being written in a variety of styles is a good thing. If you are at a point in your life where you need inspiration or a ‘little lift’ to see you through, then it is a perfect book. Heck, you might love clinical styles and the step-by-step story telling is exactly what you need. Or, like me, you want to know exactly what the author thought, felt and experienced while they transformed. It is all there.

Pebbles is also a resource guide. At the end of each story is information on how to contact the author. Perhaps they are the exact healer you need in your life right now.

Perhaps their pebble in the pond is the transforming ripple that reaches you.

    Thanks Eliza for this post. Since perhaps you thought my chapter was one of the more clinical ones where I share solutions with the reader, I wanted to share my personal story:
    “Blind!” I was told I would lose my eyesight in my 20’s. Now at age 55, I have recovered my vision despite a genetic eye condition and along the way got a PhD in Integrative Medicine. Now I use alternative medicine approaches to help visionaries — people who want to create a more beautiful world, to improve their physical eyesight, core insight and intuitive sense.
    When I was eight years old my father helped me catch a blue morpho butterfly. Its blue iridescent winds were the most beautiful things I had ever seen. By the time I was 28, I was working as a professional photographer. And then it all changed.
    The ophthalmologist in his white coat with impressive degrees said, “It is genetic and there is nothing you can do about it. You need to consider you life if you become blind.”
    He scared the daylight out of my life and I went to massage school, a profession where you don’t have to be able to see. Taking a test one day with a wicked bad migraine and a big black spot in the middle of my visual field, I hit rock bottom. And there I said to myself, “This is not okay. There has to be something I can do.”
    Now as a clinician, coach and speaker, I help people see, truly feel seen and glimpse ways to impact inner peace, outer harmony and abundance in their world.
    More than nine million Americans over the age of 40 have macular degeneration. They are losing their vision, their ability to drive safely, watch transformational movies, and to read inspirational works like my chapter, The Eyes Observing Your World in Christine Kloser’s Pebbles in the Pond, Transforming the World One Person at a Time. Their world is getting smaller. I understand.
    I now call keratoconus, the genetic eye condition, “Carrots and Begonias” because the diagnosis and my recovery reminded me of the importance of carrots and nutrition for the eyes and the beauty of flowers, people and everything in this remarkable world.
    I see you!
