Winks from Above: Opening Up to Signs and Synchronicities to Receive Little Miracles Each Day is a work of non-fiction in the slice of life, spiritualism, and alternative healing subgenres. It was penned by author Liliane Fortna and is presented in its audiobook format with narrative contributions from Robin McAlpine and help from Stephen George. Intended for the general adult reading audience, the book seeks to offer personal stories and experiences from the author, who has had the presence of Angels and Guides in her life for as long as she can remember, and who uses their spiritual guidance to develop a whole new perspective on life and seek beauty, harmony, and happiness wherever she goes.

Author Liliane Fortna is an incredible person with so much to teach her readers, and this book is perfectly crafted to frame the many stories, traumas, highs, lows, and triumphs of her life into a fantastic memoir and guidebook for others. The concept of noticing the little things in life is not new, but Fortna has a unique turn of phrase that is both calming and energizing at once, inspiring readers into action whilst also reassuring them that everything is going to be okay in spite of the vast uncertainty of the wider world. I found the development of her work as an energy healer to be especially intriguing as I knew nothing about how people get into that line, and the chapter on dreams is one I’ll be rereading for my own purposes time and again.

In terms of its audio presentation, the narration by Robin McAlpine leads the way with a smooth tone and a powerful sense of emotional attunement to the author’s own words. The editing is clear and crisp, with nice enhancements and pacing to offer the same tone of finding balance and harmony as the narrative itself. Overall, Winks from Above is an emotionally complex read but one which will help you to engage with greater joy and harmony every day in your own life.

While there are many books about supernatural occurrences, few are as engaging as Winks from Above by Liliane Fortna, Robin McAlpine, and Stephen George. From an isolated and painful childhood to empowered self-ownership, the meaning of Liliane’s sojourn spans living in a host of countries and assuming an array of roles throughout her travels, ranging from a botanist in the Amazon to a respected ballet dancer. However, this is not the purpose of the book. The theme is sharing a path to becoming a spiritual healer by detailing events of a life shaped by countless ‘synchronicities' - the linkage of events most would describe as good fortune or fate. Unfolding this personal narrative is intended to persuade reconsideration through the prism of oversight by angels and spiritual guides.

To immediately engage readership, the opening chapter of Winks from Above abounds with facts in a way that consistently promotes attentiveness. While the painful isolation that characterized her formative years gives rise to the possibility of cognitive rationalizations rooted in a vivid imagination, the author gently reinforces credibility through nuances and vocal modulation. As the narrative progresses, emphasis strengthens the bond between the reader and the author. Small vignettes—spiritual episodes—are followed by inquiries as to whether the reader has experienced a similar event and, if so, to consider another prism of reflection on identity and worldview. With a series of examples deftly woven together and the exemplary quality of writing about phenomena that seem to defy logic, the possibility of an alternative explanation is viable and noteworthy even for the initially skeptical.

The choice of format as an audiobook enhances communication by subtle emphasis. In keeping with the metaphysical tone, strengths are sensitively reinforced instead of being dismissed by the reader as just another New Age book. This sense of nuance is particularly evident when seeking to demonstrate why looking inward matters. Consistent respect for engagement is a hallmark of presentation. Production quality is exemplary, enabling readers to focus on a compelling narrative. From content to the selected medium Winks from Above is an important book.

Winks from Above: Opening Up to Signs and Synchronicities to Receive Little Miracles Each Day is a self-help audiobook written by Liliane Fortna and narrated by Robin McAlpine, Stephen George, and Liliane Fortna. Author Fortna believes we all receive guidance from the Universe, regardless of whether we believe it. Those with an open mind and heart know it, and some still search for the answers. This book will help both categories of people to recognize the signs of the Universe and interpret and implement these in their lives. Liliane Fortna gives practical tips to create a healthy relationship with your source of guidance, help with communicating with the source of information, and tips for developing and understanding guardian angels. Filled with anecdotes and personal stories, this book will help build your awareness while making you feel connected to the Universe.

The book is narrated by three people: Liliane Fortna, Stephen George, and Robin McAlpine, and each narrates in the most comforting way possible. Stephen George’s narrative style felt like a warm hug, Robin McAlpine’s voice was like hot chocolate on a wintry day, and Liliane Fortna’s voice was like a strengthening boost I needed. The voice qualities of the three were strong, rich, and vibrant. These blended well together and added life to the narrative.

The book is fantastic. The meditation tips are so soothing that I started practicing before finishing Winks from Above. The exercises advised by Liliana were welcome because they are realistic and easily manageable. I enjoyed her narrative style a lot. It was authoritative but without being bossy. It was like listening to my favorite teacher talk about her favorite topic. It was immersive and simply too good to stop. The almost six hours of narration felt too short. If you are looking for spiritual guidance, try this book.
