Maya is kicking up her heels, living the fabulous and mostly carefree life of a twenty-something young woman. However, in the back of her mind continuous longing for a good marriage and family lingers. How do you find the right man, the one who sticks through thick and thin? Will he provide you with the things you find essential in a relationship? Maya kissed a few frogs before finding her Prince Charming, but what followed was of higher importance. She started feeling chronic pain in her lower back, the pain that wouldn’t let her neither sit nor stand. Thus Maya began her relentless quest for diagnosis and healing, which she ends after discovering Energy healing. She travels the globe to receive and raise her own stored Energy, the one that changes everything. Her ultimate desires come true.
The Luna Tree was sent to me all the way from Croatia – which was very exciting. I was interested to get into this book as the content sent by Maya seemed to be focusing on a totally different type of literature. For me, it was a chance to explore an area in life which I hadn’t previously considered.
The overall writing of the book is okay – admittedly, I am used to reading far more complicated texts involving intricate language and imagery. However, as the book progressed, I realised that this ‘high brow’ nature of mine regarding literature was being altered by Maya’s story. Although the actual writing wasn’t of the highest quality (still incredibly good considering English is not her mother language) the details Maya tells her readers draw you in.
Maya opens herself up, shows her vulnerability in her younger years. The brutal honest throughout the text took me a while to get used to – but eventually I began to really enjoy her journey. She taught me to look at life and people through a different perspective.
Her story really showed me two key things: 1) never give up on life, there is always an alternative option or direction to travel in and, 2) positivity works wonders. If you relax, and enjoy your life, bigger and better things come to you. I really really loved this part of the book – it definitely made me rethink my attitude towards certain people and situations in my life.
Overall, this book took a while to get going, but once you understood the negativity during the opening chapters, the result of Maya’s story was worth it.
