—Mary Anne Radmacher, artist and author Live with Intention and Lean Forward into Your Life
"Jesus said we could create heaven on earth. The Buddha said we could create the conditions for manifestation. Janet Conner tells us how. Her 30-day program is spiritual yet imminently practical, deeply serious yet lots of fun. This is a step-by-step guide to expressing our own divinity."
—Ellen Debenport, author of The Five Principles
"Janet Conner has her priorities straight. And because she does, she's written a poetically precise guide to how we can all grow beyond 'What's in it for me?' to 'Just how do I seek first the kingdom?' Do what she says and you'll know what it means to have 'all these things' added to your very blessed life."
—Victoria Moran, HHC, AADA, author of Creating a Charmed Life and Main Street Vegan
"The Lotus and The Lily is simply divine. In it, Janet Conner takes us far beyond the Law of Attraction. Through her deeply transformative process, we learn to prepare ourselves for the life of our dreams. After participating in Janet's program, I experienced a shift in focus -- from wants and worries -- to creating the conditions for my life to flourish. This shift made all the difference."
—Laura Harvey, editor of Daily Word
"Janet Connor has taken her readers from Writing Down Your Soul to fully aligning with the pure intentions of our purpose on earth. Janet's book The Lotus and the Lily lifts, lightens and leads the dedicated truth student to understanding true prosperity. Lasting prosperity is when the lower earth chakras are balanced and the heart chakra is open to allow the upper chakras of heaven to be revealed. The 'I AM' expression along with the gift of inner seeing leads the readers to a new way of existence -- a life free of wanting and a joyful life of always having."
—Rev. Temple Hayes, Senior Minister of Unity Campus, St Petersburg, FL and author of How to Speak Unity and The Right to Be You

—Joel Fotinos, author of Think and Grow Rich Every Day

Revealing secret paths and signposts, she illuminates our deepest and most fulfilling ways of being and becoming. Through The Lotus and The Lily I learned to plant the seeds of my intention for a beautiful life in the fields of my Soul. A bountiful harvest awaits all who journey within."

"In this deeply nourishing 30-day program, Janet Conner weaves a magic carpet of the combined paradoxical wisdom of Buddha and Jesus and carries us into transcendent creativity. The Lotus and The Lily is a joy ride!"
—Ted Wentworth, author of The Enlightenment Code, and Editor-in-Chief of Enlightenment Lifestyle Magazine (www.EnlightenmentLifestyleMagazine.com)
"The Lotus and the Lily is a healthy corrective for the ego-driven, materialistic interpretation of spirituality that is epidemic in our culture. Spirituality is not about getting your stuff. It is about developing a closer relationship with the Transcendent, however named, as Janet Conner makes clear."
—Larry Dossey, MD, author of Healing Words and The Power of Premonitions
"Janet Conner has emerged as a vibrant and innovative spiritual teacher. In her new book, The Lotus and the Lily, Janet unlocks vital secrets to manifestation. She has created a process that helps people create their relationship to the divine and set the stage to receive what we desire in alignment with our highest good. She teaches a myriad of techniques, including an unusual way to use the mandala. A born teacher, Janet's fascination for spiritual connection and learning guides her to take complex spiritual principles and turn them into step-by-step practices and processes that will transform your relationship to giving and receiving. Her wisdom is vast and she will be a beacon in the field for years to come. My mandala reminds me daily of staying connected to my trusted source and keeps me centered on the importance of creating a receptive context. Janet has a key piece of the spiritual puzzle -- this book will move you way ahead on your spiritual journey."
