Book Review: Setting God Free

Setting God Free by Sherri Lane

I recently had the pleasure of completing a book by Sherri Lane titled Setting God Free:  Awakening to Miracles.  I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is a student of spiritual studies.  I have never met Sherri personally, but we happened to connect through Facebook.  We were both members of a Group Page for a Reiki Practitioner from New York who specializes in marketing Reiki to the Medical Community.  I guess we both had the same ideas and posted similar comments to various discussions, and one thing lead to another and Sherri sent me a Friend request.  Through the friend request, I learned that Sherri had completed A Course In Miracles, had a page devoted to ACIM, and recently published this book.  I kept putting off ordering this book because I was waiting for it to come out in Nook, but Sherri said that it would only be available through Amazon.  So, I had to order some other books that I couldn’t get as an E-Book and ordered the paperback version.  Let me tell you, I am glad I ordered that book and read it.  There are many topics in the book that Sherri covers which speak personally to me on a spiritual level, and may just speak to you as well.

As a person who devours personal growth and spiritual books by Dr. Wayne Dyer, Sonia Choquette, Eckhart Tolle, Doreen Virtue, and Caroline Mysse, I have spent the greater part of my life exploring my own spiritual path and the reasons why I am here on this earth.  Like Sherri, as a young child, I was always interested in reading spiritual material.  I  grew up getting up at 5am on Sunday mornings, watching Davey and Goliath, and reading a 13 or 15 set of books that was beautifully illustrated for children discussing biblical stories.  I don’t even remember the name of the series, and when I try to look it up on Google, I can’t find it.  When I was growing up, some doctors’ offices even had them in their waiting rooms.  Yet 40 years later, I still remember the enjoyment and wonder in reading those books, and the personal spiritual connection I had at such a young age to God.

Even though I have a deep interest and love of spiritual material, I did not grow up going to church on a regular basis, and saw no need to do so as an adult, since I believe Church exists everywhere, not just a building on Sunday mornings.  It seems that Sherri and I may have that in common, as well.  Sherri and I both perform Reiki, and it was interesting to read in her book that her Reiki experiences with many of her Christian friends sounds so much like my own experiences with their fear about Reiki, and that it may not be from God.   One of the examples that Sherri gives in her book dealt with a mission trip in which several of the teenaged missionaries experienced God in such a profound way because they had been open to other ways of worshiping.  To sum it all up, there are many ways of setting God free, we just have to be open.
