I finished my book.
Two years ago, exactly, I was sitting in my friends’ living room in San Diego. I loved visiting Lisa and Steve. Over glasses of wine we discussed future, the spirit world, wisdom, and a book I should write.
“You should write it on the beach!” Lisa suggested. How lovely that would be.
“I could be on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday!” I exclaimed.
The book came to me in pieces but then our financial stress made me put it away. It came back in a novel form and I didn’t like it so I put it away.
In many books that I have read, spirits help put ideas into one’s head. As soon as Lisa died, my book came to me in a torrent of rapid fire typing. It was finished in two and a half weeks. It is being edited now.
Living my own life again through writing about it was quite the emotional rollercoaster. I was faced with being honest about people in my life. Seeing the truth of matters. Of reliving abusive situations, of struggle, of triumph, and love. The lessons that I have learned along the way from my mentors and my friends and the earth have been staggering, and beautiful, and have led me to this place where I am now. As a healer.
After I finished, I opened a cupboard and a memorial bracelet for my friend, Nancy fell out. I haven’t seen it in a long time. I can feel Kat’s presence. I know that my friends beyond the veil helped me write this book and I hope it will help others, or at the very least, entertain.
This is the book I have been waiting to write. I already have a book signing scheduled. I hope to have many more. I am grateful.
The Making of a Medicine Woman coming soon….(still working on a subtitle!) May 1st.
