RISE: A Call to the Light Tribe by Cynthia Gomez is the author's call for us to collectively realign ourselves with our true purpose. The author calls the reader's attention to the fact that our world is progressively falling apart. Therefore, the onus is on us to change the narratives and usher in the 'New Earth.' However, Ms. Gomez informs us that we must first change ourselves from within and cast light upon the shadows that work against the balance, abundance, and peaceful coexistence of all our Earth's elements.
This self-help book also seeks to guide readers on how to realize their purpose through spirituality. The author uses her knowledge in Reiki and other mediums to help readers explore their untapped powers and be the chosen ones to heed the Earth's calls.
Firstly, I must say that the author's message is both relevant and thought-provoking. I learned a lot from Ms. Gomez's insights into the soul, Karma, and Gaia. I also found her teachings on forgiveness, trust, gratitude, and love to be very inspiring. What I liked most about the book was how thought-provoking the author's lessons were. For example, the author teaches that you should trust that what you are experiencing is meant for you. This book provides a different approach to how we perceive pain, loss, and disappointment. It would promote a sense of purpose in individuals. As a result, I enjoyed how the book helped me to accept and be at peace with whatever I have gone through in life.
Furthermore, I enjoyed how well organized the author's thoughts were in the book. It is like a progressive course that prepares the reader for the task ahead. I love how it helps the reader to relate to the author's intention for writing the book. More so, there's something for everyone in this book. You don't need to be an energy master or a believer in reincarnation to find something that would minister to you in the book.
Nevertheless, I didn't enjoy that the book was hard to understand in some parts. Especially at the beginning of this book, I found the author's explanations confusing due to her complex writing style. I think the author is assuming that all of her readers are knowledgeable in the subject she discusses. And this leads to the supply of overwhelming amounts of information to the reader at the same time. I had to reread some of the sentences to understand the author's point. Fortunately, once I read past the beginning parts of the book, her explanations flowed seamlessly.
In conclusion, I am rating RISE: A Call to the Light Tribe three out of four stars. It seems professionally edited since I found only an error throughout the book. I knocked a star off the book's rating due to how hard it was to understand in the beginning. However, the pros outweigh the cons, so it doesn't deserve a lower rating. I recommend the book to open-minded readers interested in understanding their purpose, especially those willing to play their part in bringing the 'New Earth.'
