AAAGH! I THOUGHT YOU WERE DEAD (And Other Psychic Adventures)
Written by Kiki Howell Authors by Authors
I have to state first that after receiving this book into my home, a flurry of activity and special events began in my life and the life of a friend whether coincidence or not, who knows. So, this review, while written up by me is coming from the sentiments of both me and my friend who were both touched by the book.
This book is an informative and useful guide/handbook for anyone who wants to develop their own psychic abilities and seek deeper spirituality, or even just someone who wants to learn more about the life of a psychic. Natasha Rosewood is a wonderful story-teller which lends itself well to the way the book is written with personal narratives taking up the majority if the chapters followed by her wonderful insight in a question and answer format.
Ms. Rosewood's obvious enthusiasm, wisdom and extensive knowledge acquired over years of practice shines. Even confirmed skeptics would be deeply moved by her compassion, and thus her ability to teach her clients to heal their own wounded souls. She seeks to teach and counsel her clients, and she has a way of delivering the messages she receives in a positive and nurturing manner. She answers many of the questions we all have, delving into her own extensive personal experiences to provide a wealth of useful information. Ms. Rosewood offers hope and guidance to people who have lost their way, who have sought traditional help without results. Her exploration of past lives and the affect they have on present lives is extensive.
She inspires the psychic in all of us to explore the endless possibilities and signs that unfold each day of our lives, if only we stop long enough to see and hear them. Also, she introduces the reader to a wealth of other avenues of study like quantum physics and EFT. Her guide to life at the end of the book is priceless in and of itself.
I can say that personally, both my friend and I are stronger individuals, more secure in our paths having read it. Thanks Natasha!
AAAGH! I THINK I'M PSYCHIC (And You Can Be Too)
Written for Amazon (now Five Star) by Holly Workman, Vancouver, B.C.
"I don't know about you, but I read a fair number of 'New Age' books. I can count on one hand the number I've read that were so gripping I couldn't put them down. This is one of them.
Many people writing for this market have a lot of good information to share, but little skill with which to present it to the reader. Not so with Natasha Rosewood.
This is a story from the heart. Each experience is given in the context and state of mind she was in at the time, how she received it then. I could so relate to some of these situations! I found that all the nuances and body language were there, so I could totally picture the scene. And yet, there was never a feeling of superfluous words or a sense of the pedantic.
At the end of each chapter, the author brings us to the present by giving us her current understanding of that experience, and what she learned from it. This format is extremely refreshing, and keeps everything very clear. I enjoyed these parts as much as the stories themselves, though of course they're a different experience. But, here again, they feel more like the author's shared understandings, rather than 'teachings'. And although many of these "Metaphysical Endnotes", as she calls them, are fairly basic to those of us who have been around the metaphysical block a few times, I still found some new learnings for myself and some new points of view that are quite helpful. This is definitely not regurgitated material, but truths that have come out of personal experiences.
Although it's inconsequential, I LOVED the cover art and found it really set the stage well for the material.
Needless to say, highly recommended. Can't believe it's a first effort! Can't wait for number 2!
Book Review by
The Coast Reporter - July 24, 2004
"The best adventure is into the mysterious," according to Albert Einstein, as quoted in the final paragraph of Natasha Rosewood's debut book, Aaagh! I Think I'm Psychic (And You Can Be Too).
Recently launched at a series of events in Gibsons and Sechelt, the book is an adventure as unexpected as the lady herself-entertaining, humorous and with a minimum of New Age mumbo-jumbo.
Petite, blonde, and smiling, the English-born Rosewood looks like a former flight attendant or ski bunny - which she was. But this is one tough lady, a survivor of a psychotic verbally abusive mother-a reluctant psychic.
Describing herself as a diviner and facilitator, Rosewood says, "Developing a psychic ability is not merely about being able to tune in to your own or somebody else's future. Nor is it confined to the healing of the spirit. When you open up your mind, you are embracing a much greater, more powerful, more loving, more exciting Universe with all its endless possibilities for joy."
I Think I'm Psychic is a straightforward and absorbing account of Rosewood's struggle for self-acceptance and self-discovery, as well as a description of her development of the psychic abilities she spent much of her life denying.
Working her way through 1980's behaviour modification seminars like The Mastery and EST, Rosewood kept meeting up with other psychics and was led, step by gentle step, to the realization of her own gifts and abilities.
Some of the stories are downright creepy.
Her account of holing up in an Oregon motel room, absorbed by hour-long trances and visions, guided by something that identified itself to her as Divine Intelligence consumes three chapters and is the weakest point of the book. The sessions, which Rosewood calls her initiation as a psychic, were recorded by an observer and descend into the realm of I-see-dead people, weird science and yes, a bit of New Age mumbo-jumbo.
For the most part, Rosewood does not take herself too seriously and her humour and snappy writing style move the narrative along at a good pace, which is not quite disrupted by the "Metaphysical Endnotes"- life-lessons for the would-be psychic - at the end of each chapter.
Following a series of soul-jarring events, Rosewood traded her Whistler ski-bunny lifestyle for that of a full-time Sunshine Coast psychic in 1997 She has never regretted the decision, nor looked back.
Rosewood now jets around the world to offer readings and psychic development workshops, in which participants are trained to listen to and trust their own intuitions as a first step in their spiritual healing.
