You Own the Power: Stories and Exercises to Inspire and Unleash the Force Within

Rosemary Altea, Author William Morrow & Company $25 (310p) ISBN 978-0-688-15276-5
The popularity of charismatic healer and spiritual medium Altea, who wrote the bestsellers The Eagle and the Rose and Proud Spirit, rests on her comforting vision of death and afterlife and her empathy for the sick and bereaved. With help from her spirit guide, a part-Native American named Grey Eagle, Altea claims to have made contact with countless spirits of the deceased and transmitted their loving messages to those who have survived them. Promising no miracles, this time around she advises readers to develop their own connections with the spirit world (i.e., their sixth sense) by honing the other five senses and developing self-knowledge. In addition to meditation and relaxation techniques, she offers exercises based on imaginative forms of positive thinking, such as building and decorating a metaphorical home. Many readers will be fascinated by her tales of communion with the spirit world (whether they believe them or not), although she often refers to or repeats stories from previous books. One anecdote that's likely to garner attention is her claim of contact with a victim of the TWA Flight 800 plane crash. However, skeptical readers may find it inappropriate that this messenger of God's love uses her book to settle scores with her former husband and Italian Catholic priests, and to plug her other products.
