Hiring the Heavens offers a roadmap to transforming one’s life by tapping the divine. In this book, Jean Slatter turns abstract expressions, such as “God is within you” and “ask and you shall receive,” into something more concrete, more immediate, and real. She suggests readers recognize themselves as part of the divine plan of creation and teaches them to simply believe that the “angels for hire” can help them solve problems, both small (“jewel sleuth” to find missing pearls or “spiritual connoisseur” to find a great restaurant) and large (“romance committee” or “spiritual employment counselor”). While written in a lighthearted style, the book is based on the serious concept that everyone is part of “God” and that, like parents, God expects everyone at some point to grow up spiritually and take charge, and that the heavens will support the process if called upon. Using personal stories and real-world examples, Slatter shows how she transformed her life by “hiring the heavens” – and how others can, too.
