Soul Surfing

Dawnea Adams, Author Delacorte Press $21.95 (240p) ISBN 978-0-385-31933-1
Bristling at the label ""psychic,"" Adams prefers to be known as an ""intuitive"" or ""telepathic"" counselor to her clients in Malibu, mostly film and music business folk. Her first book presents her technique of assisting people to ""phase,"" or work through, life problems by using visualizations that call upon ""intuition, imagination, and emotion."" Adams also includes revealing memories of her childhood with an evangelical preacher father, a psychic mother (who was so terrified of what she ""saw"" that she abandoned her family and finally committed suicide) and a stepmother who was both physically and emotionally abusive. These and other stories from Adams's life and those of her clients can help readers identify with specific problems caused by past experiences and the need to work through them in a safe and conscious way. Adams instructs her clients to imagine a movie screen on which a problematic situation is played out, a difficult person confronted or a spirit guide consulted. The author will probably turn off some readers by her occasional profanity and outbursts (""Let's Rock and Roll!!""). She comes across as sincere, however, and many readers may benefit from her offering of a variety of useful exercises based on the ideas that ""Divine Order"" wants us all to be abundant and fulfilled, and that, if imagined with sufficient emotion, wished-for events can come true.
