This is a stunning new collection of thoughts, prayers, and rites of passage, Marianne Williamson returns to prayer. 'Illuminata' is a way to bring prayer into practical use, creating a sweeter, more abundant life for yourself and the people you care for. Prayer is practical, Williamson tells us. 'To look to God is to look to the realm of consciousness that can deliver us from the pain of living.' 'Illuminata' brings prayer into our daily lives, with prayers on topics from releasing anger to finding forgiveness, from finding great love to achieving intimacy. There are prayers for couples, for parents, and for children; prayers to mend broken relationships and prayers to overcome obsessive and compulsive love. There are prayers to heal the soul, prayers to heal the body, and prayers for work and creativity.
