Thank you, Irene! I really enjoy your writing style, and I LOVE the excerpt. Just can't wait to read the entire book! I'm also happy to see Jana get recognition for her gifted contribution.
Light and love,
HI, Irene, that's my youngest son Tom ( now 21 and nearing graduation from IU) and me practicing salsa dancing at a regional JuicePlus conference in Michigan. We do have a lot of joy in all we do. I love your website. Candace
Josh directed me to the site,I run a website for widows/widowers with young kids,www.everafterwidowed.com
My husband died three years ago,naturally I had a lot of questions,& that was the begining of my journey.Two things helped me through my grieving process,knowing he still existed,though not physically,& the little signs he would give me.
I look forward to you'r book.
The photo was taken at our National Zoo in Canberra (Australia's Capital City). Some 18 months prior, I had seen a segment on the "Weekend Getaway" show we have here, where for $150 you can spend 15 minutes with the Cheetahs. So for the next year or so my family had to endure me constantly talking about how much Iwould love to spend time with the Cheetahs. Eventually they took the hint and purchased a gift certificate from the Zoo for me to spend time with these beautiful animals. I drove a round trip of 6 hours for 15 minutes of bliss. I'm pictured with Robi (as in Nairobi). Robi is the leader of a family of 5 Cheetahs and was also the most accommodating of all the Cheetahs. I have several other photos on my facebook page which show off perfectly this animals beautiful nature.
I hold a spiritual development circle once a week. Before each class we tend to sit and chat about the weeks events. One of my students mentioned downloading your excerpt. Aisling talked about how much she enjoyed it and another student, Maria had read it, enjoyed it also. I must say, I love the title. Straight after class when everyone had gone home, I came straight upstairs and downloaded it for myself. I plan to make some spare time in the next couple of days to read it for myself. Thats how I came across your site.
Have a great week.
May you walk in peace and beauty,
The best thing I heard that opened me up when writing my book was, "If it's your personal experience, then that's your story to tell." I liked that and have always remembered it each time I found myself thinking "is anyone going to believe me?" I like that you have a clear focus of what your book is to you. I think your suggestion of an epilogue stating your belief in the validation you received and your reaction to it would be a great complement to your stories. That's just my personal opinion. I try to be scientific and logical, but more often than not I'm more convinced when I sense an emotional truthness. Sometimes that's the most effective piece of verification--that heart sense. I too look forward to getting my book out for the world to see, although I come from a different approach. My book is about my own personal paranormal and spiritual experiences from my own perspective. I find it fascinating that you worked with Jana to get your expeirences of the afterlife. What she does is something I myself want to practice and experience more, having had only a handful of those types of experiences so far. It would be great to be fully naturally skilled at it!
The exerpt went by fast. I'd be interested in reading more. Do you develop more demonstration for the reader that there is verification of Jerry's identity and that of the others? I'm also interested in learning more about the woman who did the communications for you. I'm always interested in how others perceive and receive nonphysical information. Your book definitely caught my attention. Thanks for sharing your story.
Ha ha, I knew you'd be curious and I was just about to write you to say! I am a friend of Bruce Moen and I saw that you posted a link to your site on his forum. I quickly came here and downloaded your exerpt and am reading it right now. I too have written a book about my own spiritual journey and paranormal experiences which I hope to have published soon. I'm always interested in other people's own life stories. Thanks for the exerpt.
