Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite

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!

Childhood with Elves is a work of highly creative and inspirational spiritual exploration and was penned by author Olga Gomon. Written as the first volume in The Games of Light and Shadow book series, the work centers on the concept of those enlightened folks who have walked the world with their eyes open a little wider than most people around them, and how the author herself underwent a journey with magicality, spirit, and some fascinating teachings, all to become a master of the art of astropsychology. The work is written in a narrative style akin to fiction, but can be interpreted as a kind of parable for its many spiritual lessons.

Author Olga Gomon has crafted a book that defies definition but, once read, opens readers up to its many different meanings, interpretations, and enlightenment. The narrative format of the work makes it very readable and accessible to those who may find its magical qualities a little overwhelming at first. One of the things which I found to be most striking was the emotional impact of the work, due in no small part to Gomon’s passionate authoritative voice, which speaks through her lexical and dialogue choices to give the work an inspiring spirit from cover to cover. Overall, I would say that Childhood with Elves is a reading experience for those who are open-minded to that which lies beyond the current realms of empiricism, and it is the opening to a promising and enlightening new series of spiritual teachings.

Olga Gomon has traveled many worlds and most of her experiences are invaluable. In the first volume of The Games of Light and Shadow series, Olga Gomon, a master practitioner of the esoteric, offers Childhood with Elves, an inspirational account of her magical childhood and her first teachers. This book is a high-brow spiritual experience that can be inspirational and enlightening. Gomon makes a disclaimer that everything happening in this novel can be fiction, yet some people may interpret this as a thinly-veiled account of her spiritual journey and how it developed the spiritual intelligence that shaped her to pursue astropsychology. In her travels, she recounts the shaping of her spiritual maturity as she takes mentorship with people who live half of their lives in the visible world and the other half in a world inaccessible to most of us.

Modern scientific rationalism and its dependence on empirical proof have marginalized the exploration of spirituality. Yet this is the kind of book that people searching for an alternative source of inspiration would probably read. It can be difficult for some to discern where this work blurs the line between reality and fiction since it is marketed as an inspirational work about her childhood and spiritual training with her first teachers. Perhaps Gomon does not want her work to be labeled within a limiting category, and it is the message and the telling of the story that counts. Childhood with Elves is written with captivating simplicity and demonstrates a bold ability to welcome esoteric trends as psychological, emotional, and spiritual nourishment.

She warns that the journey is unique for everyone and that for every person, this experience is special and important and may become the key to the knowledge of life.

The book is written for readers who want to reach deeper levels of consciousness, access spiritual worlds, and tap into the hidden energy flowing through these worlds and into them. Childhood with Elves is a journey filled with teachings on meditation, the constitution of the universe, the laws of life, and how to live in a way that allows access to spiritual realities. I found something to ponder on in each page and Olga Gomon just gave me a mantra to live by: “Where the thought goes, there goes your energy.” I have thought about this saying and I can see how it has been real in my own life. This is a book of awakening, written in a voice that is strong and intimate. This book is one of the best guides on spiritual growth that I have read.

This book is hard to categorize and, regardless of religion, readers will find truths and insights that are universal, from common subjects such as understanding the self (mind, body, soul, ego), developing mindfulness, mastering the relationship between thought and energy to the constitution of the universe and the laws of life, to space portals and more complex, esoteric topics. The book is filled with guidance for meditation and exercises that readers can use to explore their own spiritual world and grow within it. The book has powerful lessons about life, personal growth, and mindfulness. Childhood with Elves (The Games of Light and Shadow Book 1) contains the secret to happiness and purpose. Well-written and engaging from the first page. You won’t read this book in one sitting and it is one that you will want to pass on to others.
