Review: Nature's Secret Messages by Elaine Wilkes

Receive Wise Guidance from Your Mom—Mother Nature!

Albert Einstein said, “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” Mother Nature is always speaking to us . . . but in what language? When we learn how to discern her secrets, a world of information appears that can help us live healthier, happier, and more balanced lives.

This intriguing book will arouse your curiosity by combining ancient wisdom with modern research, and imagination with science, to help you see Nature in a whole new way.

You’ll discover how to . . .

· Recognize divine designs, hidden in plain sight, to forge a more profound mind-body-soul connection with the environment
· Look at food in new (actually, ancient) ways and choose self life over shelf life
· Cope with change, challenges, and time pressures by asking, What would Nature do?
· Become aware of what society is doing to the environment, and learn easy green solutions to save money and help the planet

Exercises throughout the book will empower you to tune in to Nature’s wisdom in order to develop a healthier mind, body, soul, and planet.

Received from the author for review.

My favorite quotes from the book were:

Nature generally doesn't multitask; she maintains a determined, sharp resolve.

Just like Nature, our lives contain many hidden symbols and patterns that, if we discover and examine them, can help us grow and flourish.  Recognizing this is vital to positive change.

This one gets four stars.  This was genuinely interesting and informative.  The discussion on the Fibonacci sequence was particularly intriguing.  The Test Your Nature IQ quizzes sprinkled throughout were a fun review and reinforcement of the material.  Part IV was my favorite section, where I particularly enjoyed the Stepford Chives portion.  The section is mostly geared towards city and suburban dwellers who have no clue about where their food comes from but is still informative for those who already know.  This would make a lovely gift for an eco-friendly friend or one you are trying to convince to become more responsible towards the Earth.

★★★★ = Really Liked It
