Review of " 7 Days With Adam" by Rev. Jay Speichts
7 Days With Adam is a brilliantly crafted work about Adam, the first man, who visits the author and shatters many of his core beliefs about God, creation, the basic nature of humans and this world. He has astonishing revelations about his and Eve's real legacy. After the 7 days visit, he leaves the author enlightened with actual exercises, prayers and meditative techniques that we can all us to access our Divine Inner Power and achieve mastery in our lives. This book is a testament to the value of storytelling in spirituality, and to disciplines spiritual practice, as well as being attuned to the Higher Self and Divine Inner Light that is in all of us.
At first when I began this book, I thought it was a work of fiction, a really good telling of what could happen in a spiritual journey. What I found out as I read, was that it was in truth a real enlightened experience of the author.
7 Days With Adam ran the gamut of fear to enjoyment to peace within. The authors interaction with Adam and at one point Eve, helped him to grow spiritually and as an overall better human being.
Adam provided growth opportunities to be shared through meditative practices and prayer with the hope that the world could be united with a Divine Consciousness. These practices would allow the author and the readers of his book to get in tune with the one called the One Source.
Overall, I found this book to be great and I could easily see myself practicing many of the disciplines that are engaged in this book. I even buy in to the thought processes. I would have tons of questions like the author did!
However, I think an average reader that would pick up this book has to be prepared to have their world turned upside down. An open mind would be a must! Many of the things Jay Speichts speaks about and Adam addresses, would not be welcomed in many circles of religiosity. Isn't that what spiritual growth is about though?
