Shaktipat is the primordial life force current that creates, sustains and guides every living thing in the universe. Author and Shaktipat Master Steven S. Sadleir transmits energy through his new book The Calling: A Journey Within Your Own Being. The book is a guided meditation. Steven takes the reader on a journey of self discovery as they connect with the energy as they are reading the book. Each word is designed to activate an inner awareness within the reader; they trigger the part of the mind that already knows as the words are reflected upon.
Most reading is simply nerve impulses from the retina to the visual cortex where the images of words are stored and the movement of energy to various parts of the brain that hold the meaning of each word forming thought. In The Calling: A Journey Within Your Own Being the reader also starts conducting energy and has the experience of going into deeper and higher states of consciousness.
The reader is guided to read at a precise tempo and to breathe in and out at various times to create a relaxed state and then guided by suggestion to places within their mind they have likely never gone. Steven takes the reader lovingly through the process of transcending the trammels of the mind and senses through advanced Jhana and Advita yogic introspection tools that he learned from his masters and developed for western students. As the reader is guided to "observe your mind thinking" and then "observe the observer observing" students begin to access their own conscious awareness.
Steven began meditating at the age of five, started teaching yoga in high school, and at sixteen began twenty years of research on this first book, a best-seller, Looking for God, a Seeker's Guide to Religious and Spiritual Paths of the World; a compendium of every major spiritual path and teacher on the planet. During this time Steven studied with dozens of enlightened masters from most of the ancient traditions, and is trained as a Master in the lineages of Vethathiri Maharishi from Madras and Sri Sri Sri Shivabalayogi Maharaj in Bangalore, India. In these traditions spiritual energy called Shaktipat is transmitted to help students enlighten and Steven has developed methods of transmitting Shaktipat through the written word.
Steven S. Sadleir is the best-selling author of Looking for God: A Seeker's Guide to Religious and Spiritual Groups of the World (Penguin-Putnam), Wake Up: Live the Life You Love (co-authored with Dr. Wayne Dyer and Deepak Chopra), as well as, The Awakening, An Evolutionary Leap in Human Consciousness and Self-Realization, An Owner-User Manual for Human Beings. Steven is also the host of Enlightenment Radio, broadcast to listeners in over 120 countries and Director of The Self Awareness Institute in Laguna Beach, California, a virtual college of enlightenment represented globally.
The Calling: A Journey Within You Own Being (ISBN 978-1-883544-02-5, 96 pages, $19.95) isn't so much a book at a paper conductor of energy. Meant to be read over and over like a mantra it brings the reader into there own being. Distributed through New Leaf Distributing, Amazon.com, bookstores and the publisher's website.
