Mind/Body connectedness is essential because it influences your body's response to external and internal energy. Although Connected: Discovering Your Inner Guides by Seema Desai with illustrations by James Ballance is geared to children, adults can benefit from the various tools provided here as well. Seema explains the sensations that guides and guards offer the body thoroughly. For example, guards are influenced by your emotions while guides are those elements that provide center and balance. Reading this book helps the reader not only to tap into their emotions but also their bodies as they encounter stress, anger, sadness, joy, and laughter. Believe it or not, each of these emotions channels different energies that can either be helpful or harmful to the body.
Reading Connected by Seema Desai offers any reader, young and old alike, a resource for practicing creativity, love, peace, and kindness, while still having fun. As Seema states, we can't change how others respond to our kindness but we can control how we respond and interact with them. I viewed this book as a yoga and meditation session that instills deep breathing, mindfulness, and calm with Seema being right there with me, leading me through different techniques. Seema wants us to learn how to tap more into and stay more connected to our guides and less with our guards for a better life and outcome. This book is ideal for improvement and healing.
