Childhood with Elves is the first book in The Games of Light and Shadow series by Olga Gomon. It is a highly spiritual recounting of the author’s first lessons and teachers that guided her on her journey to become a master practitioner of esotericism. Her journey is nothing short of an inspiration. From little snippets to the mesmerizing retelling of some fascinating events, the author makes sure the reader recognizes each of her spiritual awakenings for what they are. She leaves a bold disclaimer in the beginning and tells readers that what she explains in this book may be taken as just a story for some people, but some will take it as a real account. She shares stories of her travels, how her spiritual education began, and how she reached maturity to become who she is today.
Spirituality has become almost a myth now, but this book refutes the idea. Author Olga Gomon does it with a simple prose style that has a massive impact. The positivity and acceptance just ooze out of the pages, and you cannot help but be enthralled by Gomon’s words. I am a very spiritual person, so I believe what she described here really happened to guide her on her spiritual journey. The prose is very composed, it is not complex, and it is not something that you will forget any time soon. Every sentence has a deeper meaning that is accentuated by the simplicity of the sentence structure. There is no fancy show of intelligence here. You learn about nature, the laws of nature, how people tend to see things, and what they are. A positive book that just makes so much sense to me. It is magical!
