Material Girl, Mystical World is written by former Features Editor of the Sunday Times Style magazine, Ruby Warrington, who has always had her finger on the pulse of what’s trending. The influential force behind The Numinous, the high-vibe on-line magazine about spirituality for modern women, not only is Ruby deeply connected the “now age” spirituality scene, she is also one of the leading faces of the new seeker movement, where hippie meets hipster.
Smart, funny and incisive, Material Girl, Mystical World invites readers on a colourful journey to discover their own path to personal enlightenment in every area of life from love, sex and relationships to fashion and beauty, and health and wellness.
Ruby Warrington reminds me of myself – I find her very relatable to many of my friends too. From a fashion background, obsessed with what’s trending on the season’s catwalk to a fully fledged Now-Ager. She’s taken the trends from fashion to explore the trends of spirituality, figuring out along the way which mystical wonders resonate with her and add to the toolkit in her life.
Material World, Mystical Girl is a book for anyone who’s curious about spirituality and wants to understand what dharma, crystal healing, chakras, tarot and mediumship actually means and how we can adopt it in our daily lives. Don’t get me wrong, this book won’t be for everyone but, what I will say is that it brings all this stuff very much to the ‘now-age’ – no complicated jargon or citations from A Course In Miracles and some really helpful overviews in each chapter of the key stuff you need to know.
I especially enjoyed the chapters on crystal healing – there seems to be a load of noise about crystals right now, and the chapter on your ‘dharma’ – all about your higher self, what’s calling you, your karma. As someone who considers myself pretty spiritual I learnt so much from the book and it really made me think more about what I could really benefit from.
The book is written in a lighthearted tone – I laughed out loud so many times reading it! Ruby doesn’t take herself too seriously which I think is really great about the book – she doesn’t preach, she just tells it how it is with a few references to fashion and being a 21st century woman.
Reading this book will definitely spark a bit of conversation – it did for me! And I recommend reading it within your own tribe – share what you’ve learnt and any ideas that spring to mind and highlight your favourite quotes from the books – of which there are too many goodies to mention!
Since I finished the book I’ve become hooked on reading Ruby’s blog – The Numinous – so much goodness here on moons, tarot, signs etc. Material Girl, Mystical World is available to buy from [amazon_textlink asin=’0008151172′ text=’Amazon’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’gozen-21′ marketplace=’UK’ link_id=’fb536e69-21e0-11e8-b581-f3434011f437′ and Waterstones.
