The Lioness And The Crab

By Elisabeth-Anne Dumont

Balboa Press

Author Elisabeth-Anne Dumont recently sent me an email message announcing her metaphysical fable, The Lioness And The Crab. A week later, I received the book in post office box. Since I felt intrigued, I read the book that afternoon. Well, I am a Cancer Crab and she featured a crab-queen or high priestess in this fable (or is it  parable?).

In an age of quantum physics and the Law of Attraction, not to mention shadow work, Dumont connects the threads of our current spiritual teachings that reminds me of a cross between The Little Prince and Jonathan Livingston Seagull–books that appeal to the young and old alike. (This book also reminds me of Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist).

However, don’t mistake the brevity of this small book as weightless for it carries much gravity even when told in a voice of a spiritual teacher. It’s not even a book you would only read once and then stick on a shelf. This type of book asks for multipled readings and sharing with friends as well as, family.

The structure of the book resembles Neal Donald Walsch’s Conversation with God series as it also features a dialogue between two characters–the Lioness and the Crab. I also enjoy that the introvert and intuitive crab teaches the lioness about accepting the transformation and empowerment process. (Think of Leo and Cancer in the Zodiac Wheel).

Dumont sells her book on Amazon as a hardback and as an e-book. You can also purchase the book at Balboa Press.

I also am interested in crystals, gemstones, and jewelry (which I will feature in videos after I relocate to a permanent home).
