In my last blog ‘From Adversity to Opportunities’ I mentioned how experiencing a spiritual awakening led me to becoming a writer. Just like a book I also have a backstory, events that took place which has led me to where I am today. In the previous blog I told you about how I had to give up my business as a successful mobile beauty therapist after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, and how life changing it was, in more ways than one! So, in this post I want to share with you how Divine Guidance inspired me to write the content that I do. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but this is me being my authentic self.
I wouldn’t call myself a religious person, but I do pray and believe in God, but it wasn’t until I was introduced to meditation that spirituality became a big part of my life. Now, meditation was not something I was very familiar with, I was always led to believe that it only opened you up to unpleasant things, so, when a friend invited me along to her meditation session, which I had refused on many occasions, I gave in and went along. I think I was more curious than anything and I really wasn’t in the best of moods that day.
Not knowing what to expect I went in with a very closed mind, it was a small group, I remember feeling uncomfortable especially when people were closing their eyes and inviting angels to be present with us, I thought, what had I let myself in for I just wanted to get up and leave, but for some reason I couldn’t move it was like I was stuck to the chair. Once I stopped resisting, I found myself feeling very relaxed and closed my eyes. I started to see beautiful colours swirling around as if they were talking to me (strange I know) I remember just smiling and then the tears started which turned in to sobbing, now, when I say tears, it wasn’t a trickle it was like Niagara Falls I just couldn’t stop crying. Once they stopped which seemed like ages, I felt different, like a new person, and that a heavy weight had been lifted, the only way I can describe it is as if the old me had left my body (again weird) and a new one had stepped in I had never felt this kind of happiness before, except having my children of course. And that is where my spiritual journey began.
From that day meditation became a daily practice and I started to connect with my angels. (Stay with me here) Yes, you heard right, angels. Did I see them, no, did I hear them, no, so how did I know they were angels? It was just a knowing, a knowing of a beautiful presence that was around me, I felt at peace, I was able to accept my MS and started to refocus on my life.
After a few weeks I started to get all these random words coming in my mind which I just ignored, but they kept coming, the more I ignored them the more I was getting until I finally wrote them down. It turned they were words of prayer.
It was explained to me that what I was receiving were downloads from the angels, messages that were for me to pass on. When I read the words, I found they were of great comfort to me, and I knew that they could also be of comfort to others that may be going through difficult times just as I was. I received forty prayers in total which apparently is a specific number in the bible of testing, trials, and triumph through hard times, so maybe that is why I only received forty.
I was then guided to make them into a small book and have it published. Now, no one was more surprised than me, me write a book, the girl that hardly went to secondary school, who had very poor grammar and spelling, who had no qualifications and no interest in writing or reading books. Was this really happening? It most certainly was. Since then, I have written several books and got gold awards I even became a number one international bestseller on amazon. Gosh, if my teachers could see me now!
Since having my spiritual awakening, I feel honoured to have been given the tools so that I can help beautiful souls just like you who may be emotionally stuck and wanting to find that inner peace to heal just like I did. Writing became my saviour. Whether I write fiction or non-fiction all my books take you on a journey of emotional healing. Now I know why I went to that meditation session, so I could make a difference and to serve you.
I will always be grateful to my friend Felicia for introducing me to a life I never knew even existed. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
In my next blog I will tell you how I created a course and workshop to help you in releasing your thoughts, feelings, and emotions in a positive way through the power of the written word, your written words. But for now, I wish you all a blessed and peaceful day.
Love and blessings
