Cindy Saul, Publisher and Editor, phemeNEWS www.phemenews.com Popular phemeNEWS columnist Rebbie Straubing's first book is wonderful. In this easy-to-read and clearly written text, Straubing describes her system of YOFA, the yoga of alignment. She uses the analogy of a garden to describe the stages one goes through in reaching inner enlightenment, which leads to inner peace and healing. Her technique of using three points of connection, the X, Y and Z-axes which all intersect at the root of consciousness puts meditation into a framework that makes sense. And she includes the chakra system, combining them all together in a homogeus energetic mix of mind, body and soul connection that moves us into enhanced transcendent experience. The exercises at the end of the book compliment the information in the early chapters. Meditation is w something that everyone can align themselves with easily and effortlessly. Of course, being a big Abraham fan, I love her abundant useof their teachings throughout the book. They have obviously been a big influence in her life and in enhancing the creation of this most valuable learning tool. Straubing uses the analogy of the garden to teach. She brings it all together in the final chapter when she writes, The inner garden that we have been tending turns out to be the garden of the Self and it exists only at that extraordinary point where here, w and being intersect. We water this garden by pouring our uninterrupted pure consciousness on its fertile ground. We cultivate with the practices of concentration and meditation, which weed out conflicts in our vibration and bring forward the sweet fruit of our hearts' desires. I recommend this book for anyone wanting to learn meditation or to enhance their current meditation practice and also for vices just beginning to understand universal flow. Thanks, Rebbie, for bringing us a practical, easy-to-use technique to brighten and lighten our path.
