Soul Murmurs leads the reader on a beautifully sublime spiritual metamorphosis in tune with the ebb and rhythm of the seasons. Anita’s words transfer a calm wisdom that speaks of an inner resilience born of her own transformation...I am delighted to celebrate this treasury of inspirational spiritual poems and prose as wise counsel by your bedside. ~ Jenny Light, yogic meditation teacher, healer and author of Living Lightly: a Journey through Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Anita Neilson’s compassionate heart is evident as it leaps from the page, as she beckons us all: the ill, the wounded, the lost, and the seeker of Divinity, to take her hand and walk with her on a journey through the seasons. Seasons of the earth, seasons of the heart and emotions, all the circles and cycles of life. Anita Neilson’s words are "like a salve, sealing and protecting", as she speaks candidly of her own pain and struggles before venturing to suggest solutions. She gently cautions us, by sharing her life story, that there is more to life than accumulation and material success. The beauty of her homeland leaps from these pages and makes one want to roam the woods and banks of rivers there at any season, to take her book on a long walk through a favorite trail and commune with it under a favorite tree. This elegant collection of seasonal prose and poetry is a balm for the soul; hold her hand and walk through these pages with her and your heart may open to the realm of Divine love, and on the way, you’ll take with you some sage advice for living a life in tune with humanity, your own body, and the natural world. ~ Janavi Held, poet and author of Letters to my oldest friend
With a combination of poetry and prose, Anita casts writing spells of Goodness - sowing seeds of compassion and kindness. Her words radiate joy and appreciation for the great dance of impermanence. From cleaning the closets of our mind in Spring, to receiving Winter’s invitation as darkness falls to get quiet and still, Soul Murmurs offers practical tips, insights, and gorgeous spiritual poems that we can dip into all year long. I am smitten with the joy and ebullience bubbling through on each page. And the poems! Oh the sweet poems - truly they brought me to That place. That silent over-flowing abundant silent still fertile joyful place...It reminds me of reading Rilke. I love it. ~ Mariah McKenzie, author of More: Journey to Mystical Union Through the Sacred and the Profane
These heart-renderings touch deeply, heal and empower even in unsuspecting ways. Let Anita Neilson's brilliant inward light ignite your very own! ~ Jim Young, author of Aware in a World Asleep
