The Pact: Messages from the Other Side

Hello Fellow Adventurers!
Just a quick update about The Pact. It is now in the hands of chosen Reviewers who will read the manuscript and write their reviews. The deadline is set for October 1st. When I have the reviews, the manuscript will be sent to my publisher!! Hopefully, he will love it and agree to release it early next year.

Here is the book's Introduction for you to preview!


             Beyond our reality of daily lives that are busy with getting an education, raising a family, and securing employment to sustain our desires, there is a spiritual life silently unfolding. Our spiritual views can be as diverse as there are people on the planet. Different types of spiritual and religious beliefs possess words and rituals used to sustain each system to bring people together for the sole pleasure of worshipping a Divine Source. Even if one does not have a spiritual belief system that is a spiritual belief in itself.

            Belief comes from our mind, a human concept that is guided by our physicality, or brain. The renowned Theoretical Quantum Physicist Amit Goswami stated so clearly, “Consciousness is the ground of being--not the brain. The brain is made of consciousness, but consciousness is not made from the brain.” Whatever your belief in the nature of being, there can be an appreciation of open-mindedness to the concept of a soul’s progression after death. Spiritual teacher Ram Dass explores this topic openly when he writes:

            People ask me, “Do you believe that there is continuity after death?” And I say, “I don’t believe it. It just is.” That offends my scientific friends no end. But belief is something you hold on to with your intellect. My faith in the continuity of life has gone way beyond the intellect. Belief is a problem because it is rooted in the mind, and in the process of death, the mind crumbles. Faith, consciousness, and awareness all exist beyond the thinking mind.

            During my life, I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to explore many of the religious views found on Earth, and I find they ultimately covet sister and brotherhood through Love. Whether a religious system proclaims a belief in reincarnation or not, we must ask ourselves the same questions. The Theosophical teachings founded in 1875, provide these spiritual ponderings:  How can we believe that souls are created at a certain point in time, and yet live forever? How can a soul survive the body, but not pre-exist it? How can one soul live for over seventy years within a body, then drift into insignificance at the death of the host body? Perhaps questions such as these will never be thoroughly answered to our satisfaction, however, you may find some answers within this book. My chosen belief system encompasses a broad view of East and West thinking which has sustained my compassionate and positive attitude toward all life. My late husband and I had made a Pact that whoever passed away first would connect with the other to confirm, or not, my belief in an afterlife and the laws of reincarnation.

            The writing of The Pact has been a collaboration between myself and the channeled words of my husband. For those who are not familiar with the concept of channeling, it can be accomplished through techniques such as mediumship, automatic writing and drawing, intuitive sensory perception, and various other means. I channeled my husband’s words during meditations that are found in the chapter titled Channeling David’s Story of Heaven. In Chapters Thirteen and Fourteen, I offer this personal process in more detail. This book is my gift to those who decide to take a journey with me to explore the reality of reincarnation.

            As you read through The Pact, keep your spiritual mind open. Search your inner self for answers to the many questions your mind will no doubt put before you. Tap into your subconscious mind as you unfold and search your own dreams, visions, and meditations which may visit you while reading this book. As each story touches your heart, allow your own lifetime review to surface. At the back of the book is a glossary called the Lifetime Identification Chart. This chart can be used to help guide you through many of my soul’s adventures.
I am looking forward to your responses to this metaphysical memoir when it is released!
Peace & Blessings,

I am Loving Writing Again!

Hello Fellow Adventurers!
My days are filled with writing and I am enjoying each one. The words are flowing through my mind with ease...not always the case for an author!

The completed manuscript, The Pact, is still in editing. As soon as I receive it and make the necessary changes, it will be sent out for Reviews to those who have graciously agreed to read it and offer their comments. I am hoping to have it released the beginning of next year! You can read more about this personal metaphysical memoir in my previous posts.

Currently, my creative attention is consumed with my very first fiction novel! I have to say, it is unwinding on its own...the storyline keeps changing! Sometimes, I wonder "who" is writing this book? The title, as I mentioned earlier, is Finding Destiny.

I would like to share what I believe will be the intriguing cover blurb. Let me know if it spurs your curiousity.

When life throws us a curve, is it best to dive into a corner to retreat until the frayed ends of an unknown world are magically mended? We have all tried this rouse, it usually does not unwind the dramas which so cleverly worked their way into our lives. No, retreat is not a decision for brave women who meet each day armed with an inner mantra to squeeze every drop of existence and joie de vivre! from their being. Destiny was one of those young women who accepted Fate’s responsibility, properly carrying it upon her shoulders to climb over each obstruction placed in her path. She had learned to stare Fear in the eye, defying his stubborn stance to reach from deep within for enough self-love to snide his confrontation. Yes, Destiny was a rare young woman, indeed.

I will be working on this book for the next year, but I will share tidbits with you along the way. Enjoy your life, my friends...find a creative outlet and allow the juices flow from within you!
In Love & Light,
