AIDY REVIEWS (HTTP://AIDYREVIEWS.NET) Hey, have you tried movies?

Kala Ambrose Spirits of New Orleans ReviewNew Orleans (http://aidyreviews.net/ralston-crawford-jazz-noma/) has always stood as a pointof interest, with its roots stemming from the firstnative tribes, the French and Spanish occupations,to the many immigrant cultures and slaves whocame over, people have always flocked to the cityin search of culture, food, and entertainment. NewOrleans has something for everyoneboth the livingand the dead. Author, intuitive, and wisdomteacher Kala Ambrose(http://www.huffingtonpost.com/kala-ambrose)welcome you to explore this rich city with an openmind and brand new eyes for all things occult andmystical.

The Crescent City stands as the official nicknameof New Orleans, due to the natural crescent shapethe land makes underneath Lake Pontchartrain,creating a chalice shape which representsfeminine energies. Water is classified as being anelement ruled under this energy, and one of theproperties of the feminine is psychic powers. Sincethe city is surrounded by many sources of water,according to Ambrose, serves as a natural vortexwhere magic and mysterious happenings can take place, and be harnessed for a variety of purposes.

Ambrose is a native of Louisiana, and her love of the land is evident in her endearing writing style.She gives the reader an insight into her life growing up and the development of her amazing abilities.Spirits of New Orleans also contains tale after tale of Ambroses encounters with the supernatural(some friendly, some terrifying) in different locales around the city, which included famous restaurants(Arnauds, Court of Two Sisters), hotels (Andrew Jackson Hotel, Bourbon Orleans) and cemeteries(Odd Fellows Rest, Metairie Cemetery).

Alongside stories gathered from her own experiences, and those of locals and other travelersAmbrose gives detailed history about each point of interest. With history comes an assortment ofentities inhabiting each site, and I admit, as a local found the book to be educating. Significant figuressuch as pirate Jean Lafitte, general Andrew Jackson, and voodoo queen Marie Laveau are tiedinto extraordinary events, going beyond the typical history class. Very exciting.

According to Ambroses novel, Spirits have the potential to motivate readers to explore thesupernatural for themselves, and each chapter is full of tips on the best areas to experience varioustypes of encounters, and times of day one can expect to see the entities. If tapping into the powers ofthe land is more desirable, Ambrose has kindly included several power points throughout the city;some of which were very unexpectedlike City Park (http://aidyreviews.net/contemplation/) . But beadvised to obey the local laws and safety cautions clearly outlined within the book.

I found it to be nearly impossible to pull myself away from reading Spirits of New Orleans, as itintroduced me to an unknown local history and folklore. The tips within the book were detailed andare curious enough for me to consider visiting the places mentioned in the book when I have time tospare. Spirits, undoubtedly, was put together in order to serve as a comprehensive guide to NewOrleans transcendental nature. Skeptics may find Ambroses abilities questionable, but nevertheless,her personal accounts of assisting spirits and accessing past life material are highly engaging.

A highly recommended addition to any book collection.
