power-steering-2-cover-at-17-percentYour life is unlimited, and no one, including yourself, has the power to diminish your potential. That is a central theme by M. J. Scott in Power Steering 2, a sequel to the book that introduced seekers of highest destiny to trust in their intuitive senses. In Power Steering 2, the author continues the analogy of “power steering” as the intuitive force inside us that facilitates our journeys in life. In her compilation of narrative-poetic essays, M. J. Scott awakens us to notice coincidences and chance encounters and happenings and consider these as subtle messaging from God. She takes us along on her personal trip in life. Many of the essays describe incidents as they occur for her, and through them we discover beauty, kindness, peace, joy and pathways to higher calling. M. J. has lived a life of encouragement to others. She shows the reader that the power steering of intuition allows one to sense and feel the life of a total stranger. Your smallest encouragements to them may be life-changing. Power Steering 2 is an important continuing of the guidance in the first book to lives of more blessed destinies.

Power Steering ebook cover same as Hardbook thumbnailUsing a car analogy, Power Steering compiles an insightful series of vignette-style articles that illuminate the power of intuitive feelings in our quest to find the roads leading to the illumination of purpose. In this book, Marilyn makes her readers wonder how their lives would be different if they truly trusted a higher power to guide them. What would it be like to tune into a force that works for the benefit and well-being of people in a universe so complex that one can easily feel that his or her significance does not even register?

The “power steering” of intuition makes our passage through life much less tiresome, she explains. Our learning to recognize it and trust it allows us to make the choices in life that most benefit others and ourselves. Through these collections of musings, meditations and anecdotes in both books, M. J. Scott rolls out the panorama of life’s enrichments when one lets intuition take the wheel.

 Marilyn studied education at Manchester College, earning her BS in Education, followed by her MA in Mass Communications at Norfolk State University. She completed all but her dissertation in the doctoral program of Education Administration at California Coast University.  A retired gifted students teacher who began her career working at Dr. Albert Schweitzer Elementary School in Anaheim, California and 20 years in education in the public school systems of two Virginia cities, Marilyn has also spent years with her own photography business and philanthropic work.

First Review of Power Steering!

Power Steering is creative, descriptive and beautifully done. The book reminds me of special places and times in my own life. At times you feel it could have been written about you! It steers you right into the writer’s mindset as Ms. Scott was writing the book.  Her beautiful prose touched me and made me feel as if I were right beside her in the passenger’s seat; seeing and feeling her memories as she wrote.  In the process, you may even learn a little about yourself. It was a great read and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to be uplifted.”  Connie L. Buechele, reviewer and classmate of M. J. Scott.
