Using the ageless metaphor of the fairy tale, Rabia Erduman leads the reader on a journey of wonder, discovery, and self transformation. This book is a profound tool for anyone on a spiritual journey towards wholeness and balance.
Babla, a four-year-old little girl, lives in the Forest of Life. Although she is very loving and giving, she feels lost and unhappy, because she is out of touch with her Inner Wisdom.
During her journey throughout the forest, Babla meets Rabia, her Adult Self, who is strong and capable. Together they find other Inner Beings (subpersonalities), who are, like her, part of Rabia. They start creating a happy and healthy Inner Family.She also meets Outer Beings (other people), with whom she spends learning time. The Inner Guides are also part of Rabia, yet uniquely different: they exude such love and acceptance that Babla cannot help but begin loving herself. The Higher Self, the part of Rabia who is always in a state of Unconditional Love, shows Babla her potential.
White Swan, an Outer Guide, shows her that there is a more conscious way to live.
Rabia and her Inner Guides show Babla how to tap into her Inner Wisdom. They help her understand that she cannot help or change Outer Beings. She can only love and accept them as deeply and fully as she desires, and that this is all that is necessary for a fully conscious life.
One important part of Babla's journey is about understanding how conflicts between the Inner Beings can be healed. She learns not to be afraid of conflict, because there is always a way through it. Babla discovers that transformation is a natural, yet mysterious, part of life.
Another important element of babla's journey is the Healing Circle. Twelve outer Beings and Babla find each other in magical, unexpected ways, and meet on the Sacred Land. They go through exciting and deeply touching healing journeys together, emerging from them transformed.
As the veils that keep Babla separate from her true essence lift one by one, she discovers something far beyond happiness.
1) Babla was speechless. She didn't know what to make of it all, yet something had changed. Somehow her heart was feeling lighter. "Surrender to Love, surrender to Love," she repeated, touching the key around her neck. "I wonder what it means." Page 3
2) Babla looked and looked, but couldn't see anything except hatred. This was so frustrating!
"Look through the hatred," Alan's voice sounded in her ear. Babla looked through the hatred in the cold eyes. Shortly thereafter, she felt an ocean of sadness. Looking through the sadness, she saw overwhelming fear and panic. Out of curiosity, Babla continued to look into the woman's eyes, now through the panic. After the longest time, she felt herself go through something like a curtain into an explosion of color--†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢'‚'‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã‚Â¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚Â¬--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢'€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¬?all colors of the rainbow were dancing in front of her eyes. When she looked through the colors, she saw a clear lake--†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢'‚'‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã‚Â¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚Â¬--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢'€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¬?totally calm, totally silent.
Rabia Erduman calls "Veils of Separation" a fairy tale journey. It is the story of Babla and her experiences as she meets outer and inner guides and works her way through the problems of her past. In actuality it reminds me less of a fairy tale and more of the powerful, lidfe changing metaphors that Milton Erickson used to create to help others heal themselves and work through problems. It is no surprise then to find that Rabia Erduman is not only experienced in psychology but also hypnotherapy.
While the author states that Babla's tale is the story of her journey to self-discovery and growth, the path is a familiar one that will provide insight and assistance for many people. One of the reasons that people are often haunted by the past and cannot seem to escape is because the subconscious understands things only in the form of symbols. By embedding the symbols into a fairy tale the end product is a story where the very act of reading it and mentally going along on the journey affects the inner self of the reader. By the end of the book she fully integrates the best portions of all that she has learned and can now live a full and happy life, unaffected by the chains of the past.
