Cole and I are listening to the uplifting story of a plucky, inquisitive girl named Sara, and her teacher, a wise old owl named Solomon.
Sara is a series of three books, written by bestselling authors Esther and Jerry Hicks. The Law of Attraction is explained through the adventures of Sara and her friends. There is something in Sara for all of us pursuing joy and searching for answers about life, death, and the desires of the heart.
Joe and I read Cole the Sara books about five years ago and practiced some of the exercises Solomon suggested to Sara. We talked about what we did want instead of what we didn’t want, we noticed when we were allowing our circumstances to determine how we felt, and we noticed how many no’s and do not’s filled our day instead of YES’s! We appreciated everything, and at times, found great humor in doing so: “Joe, your clothes look so happy in the hamper!” “Katybeth, I really appreciate seeing your keys on the hook instead of the trash.” “Wow, Cole, it was so great having hot water when I took my shower today!”
About a month ago, Joe suggested I order the Sara books on tape. Have I mentioned that it’s far harder to resist a dead husband than a living one? In any case, I did order the books and Cole and I listen to them on the way to school each morning. I’m not sure Cole is overjoyed about listening to a story which includes a sometimes whiny little girl, but we do listen together each morning, and so far I have heard nary a complaint. The trick may be in practicing the exercises myself, and not turning them into motherly lecture points.
Sara and Solomon, a story of how dreams can come true…
