REVIEW: Beth Bell — Angels, Herpes and Psychedelics (BOOK)
Beth Bell enjoys a good story. You can tell. She personalizes numerous examples, and because of this you feel like you’re genuinely in good hands. There’s a sense that by putting examples of her own life on the line, she truly believes in what she preaches, and whether or not you as a reader agree that’s to be commended. “Because every mind unravels differently, this isn’t a ‘how-to guide’ but rather an example of a life path to learn from. My lessons and awakening happen to be heavily weighted in romantic relationships.
ABOUT BETH BELL: https://bethbell.me/
Others awaken through family drama, illness, the death of a loved one, business, or an accident, to name a few. The relationships you’ve brought into your life will be different from mine; learning how to harvest the pearls of wisdom from each one is the skill to mastering yourself so you can move beyond your deepest fears. This releases you from the constraints of the mind and the mental constructs the external world reflects, keeping you in the matrix,” Bell writes in her new book: Angels, Herpes and Psychedelics: Unraveling the Mind to Unveil Illusions. “When you do, you’ll recognize how you’ve intricately designed your life’s journey to embody your soul, live through your innate wisdom, and break through to universal truths.
You will be liberated from lower-dimensional programs where suffering, hard work, and heartbreak are prevalent. Embodying this freedom allows alignments to happen effortlessly, and life becomes easier. Now is the time for all of humanity to awaken. However, not everyone will heed the call. My journey spans from an initial awakening kiss to transcending this reality to discovering and knowing the truth that lies within each one of us.”
Bell takes the reader on a journey from A to Z with respect to spirituality and philosophy. She’s unsparing, unapologetic, and writes with a kind of postmodernist candor dinosaurs would call ‘scary.’ There’s never a sense any stone won’t be unturned, and in this case, that’s a good thing. While some critics may patriarchally call the book an exercise in holistic oversharing, it was a welcome relief for me to see something that spelled out a roadmap to a spiritualistic and decidedly holistic recovery process.
“The book isn’t for the faint of heart, naysayers, complainers, or people who want to remain victims. It’s for individuals who genuinely want to take responsibility for their lives by shifting the stories and inner dialogue the mind holds on to so tightly, releasing emotions of heartbreak, shame, guilt, and judgment, to name a few. It’s about learning the lessons you’ve set yourself up for in order to see through a lens that brings greater peace, joy, and love,” Bell writes. “The awakening journey requires the unraveling of and detachment from the stories of ‘who you think you are’ or ‘who you think you’re supposed to be.’
Up until now, this has taken many people decades or lifetimes to embody. But it doesn’t have to. The shift is happening now, and you only need to decide if you want to move into an easier way of living and loving.”
