Imagine that at the end of reading this book, you have received inspiration and support from a wise elder and your words are inscribed next to hers. A generous teacher shares with caring and opens the door for you to do the same. That is exactly what Sharon Fallon Shreve has done with her book.
Read it and enjoy the adventure!”

Ponderings is a great guide and support that gives you practical and insightful ways to focus on the magic and joy that is yours to choose and experience!”

—Cayelin K Castell, Shamanic Astrologer, co-founder of Venus Alchemy, My Star Alchemy, and former Shamanic Mystery School
“Recently, my friend Sharon asked me to review her beautiful book, Ponderings. I’ve been on a writing journey myself for the past couple of years and jumped at the chance. Once looking at the design and then the words, I could totally see the book used as a tool for reflection, personal development, and spiritual growth. I like the in-depth words that describe each thought that she ‘ponders’ about – but adding the question and affirmation, plus the journal space makes the book not just a book but a journal to meditate with. I did see in my mind’s eye, a future companion piece to the book in the form of an oracle/guidance deck.”

“What a delightful expression of insights! I’ve known Sharon Fallon Shreve for nearly two decades and continue to be blessed by her pure, loving presence and warmth. Truly, she is a joy and her buoyant soul is eloquently expressed through the words of these pages. I love how each pondering Sharon so beautifully shared is presented with a positive perspective and, often, with a viewpoint I hadn’t even considered before reading. Each topic had one or two lines that really spoke to me, giving me pause for reflection. After reading Ponderings, I now find enjoyment in letting my heart/intuition guide me to passages for inspiration and contemplation. It never fails to lead me exactly where I need to be at the moment. This book makes an excellent gift and I plan to keep several copies on hand to share with those near and dear. One can contemplate each subject as lightly or deeply as they wish.”

“Sharon’s ponderings are thought-provoking, enlightening, and fun. I love that it can be used as a journal and for guidance. I was feeling sad one day and couldn’t understand why. I skimmed through the pages and landed on one that held just the right words about dwelling in the past. I pondered the journal prompt and found the answer I needed quickly. What a blessing!”

—Heidi Henyon, Author, Sound Healer, CMT, Trauma Aware Transformational Coach

A great gift for yourself or someone you care about!

Ponderings: A Collection of 144 Illumined Reflections has given me a valuable personal growth and spiritual guidebook that I look forward to consulting regularly for insights on my journey toward a better understanding of myself and others. Similar to my work with nature and the elementals, these transmissions and reflections will aid the evolution of consciousness on our precious Earth at a time when it couldn’t be more needed. While Ponderings is non-denominational, it is also Priestess work of the highest order in service to humanity’s awakening. As someone connected to Spirit, Sharon invites us to consider new adventures and beginnings, meanings and possibilities practically and affirmatively as we are prompted to reflect and receive inspiration. This book is nourishment for the soul. It reads like a spiritual training manual to help us face our challenges and remove blocks that may keep us from living a more illumined life. Ponderings covers a lot of ground in the human experience. Yet it is accessible and easy to read and work with as a daily companion. This book will help all of us to walk in ease, grace, and beauty. It is a gift from Spirit, and I am grateful to have it in my life.
