Observing grief comes in waves

Why does grief wash over us like waves?

Our body is supposedly 70% or more water or fluids, right? And we know the Energy of the moon pulls and pushes the oceans of the world into waves. Thus, is it any wonder how Energy ebbs and flows within us?

As a highly sensitive person (HSP) and empath, I know that , “Energy in motion = Emotions” and that my “work” (if there is any), is to simply Allow the Energy to flow through, so it doesn’t get “stuck.”

Seemingly, Energetic experiences can cause a sort of stickiness (that energy healers can feel when they move their hands near a body).

❤️🦋🌀

If I desire to be well and live in peace, and I do, then I must master the Art of Allowing.

To heal wounds, past traumas, and triggers, I must observe when they occur (or when past ones rise up for clearing and healing), acknowledge them. Share or journal. Or do whatever I can to make peace with the emotion and let it go.

Why does anyone or our illusory Egos, hold on to hurt, anger, sadness, jealousy, or bitterness?

We can choose to, “Be Here Now.”

We can choose to feel the pain of an experience, pull out whatever we can learn from it, seek the silver lining, forgive ourselves or others, and let it go. Yes, we can.

Disturbances cause imbalance.

Humans tend to fight (from their state of struggle) because each wants to live an independent life and another seeks to Control them. Thus, like a butterfly in a cocoon, we fight to free ourselves.

When we choose to be consciously aware, we can ride the waves into the shore.

Energy moves. Let it flow. And like a surfer, enjoy (IN Joy) the ride. Feel. Cry. Release. Smile.

We Are All Connected. OM

Many blessings to you in ALL ways.

Grace is a Space

Observing

Grace is a Space.

And…

Grace is the Space.

Grace is the Space that I give myself and my others when “in the moment” of fussy, grouchy, hormonal, hangry, or sad, we react snappy, or name it what you will, from an irritated, aggravated, or irrational place.

Now, when I notice the upset, I simply observe and give my loved one SPACE.

Breathe. Peace. Ignore or not add to their moment of upset by feeding it either positive or negative Energy.

I don’t have to correct anyone. Just breathe and observe. Witness.

Let them have the space to feel their feelings. Often, they will correct or adjust themselves given the space to do so. (And maybe not, but we all learn at differing rates of speed.)

I’m meditating and realizing the best I can do is forgive MYSELF for any time in my life where I have been snappy, fussy, grouchy, or short.

I don’t think I have ever been mean, maybe I have, or I’ve acted rudely or responded in some otherwise negative way (or way which could be perceived of as negative, for my own self preservation). But I didn’t intend to be. Perhaps I was protecting or affirming my boundaries. Or projecting from my Ego.

So with my hands together, I forgive myself.

Tapping on my K27 points and all along my collarbone I say, “I’m okay. It’s okay. It’s ALL okay.” And I taught our granddaughters this earlier tonight—they loved it and grasped it sooo quickly!! Oh! My heart!!

I bring my mind to a neutral point and breathe.

Allow a thought to drop in.

Recall others who gave me GRACE.

The others in my life who simply OBSERVED me. And let me BE.

For today, I am very grateful.

Yes, I am in the attitude of Gratitude for my husband, adult children, and granddaughters. And my eternal and ancestral family.

I am sooo grateful to have had the mom and dad I had.

Do you want to live in that place of gratitude every day?

We can’t legislate morality!

Legislation or laws are simply the guardrails to attempt to CONTROL peoples actions. Period.

Intention and actions stem from a persons morality, from their heart and beliefs. Better to curb the things that influence those choices, like putting less violence in movies, TV, games, etc and horror and torture, etc.

REMEMBER: Cain killed Abel with a rock!!! 

I had riflery and archery classes in (gasp!) HIGH SCHOOL!!! And yes, we shot REAL rifles and aimed REAL arrows at targets! No one went on a rampage and killed other kids. Can you imagine having such classes in schools NOW??? I can’t either. Why?

When I was in high school, children were taught right from wrong and we had RESPECT for others, even when we disagreed. We fought on the playground, sure. Bullying occurred–I was bullied, even before kindergarten! But parents actually parented and most of us didn’t want to get sent to the school principal who would PADDLE US! Now, I don’t believe as much in the corporeal punishment or guiding children using fear, but I do believe in encouraging children to RESPECT their parents, and follow their loving HEART. So, let’s start there. Let’s start by teaching Meditation in schools, and respect for things that can kill us, like medications/drugs, cars/motorcycles, and weapons.

Why do we argue when what matters is that we simply… BE Jesus. Sheila Murrey

I do all I do, blog, write books, and all of that to empower people to change their HEARTS! Let’s BE more loving. Let’s BE more respectful. Let’s BE more sane. Let’s help others make changes that will allow their hearts to guide them so violence is not the end result. I want us all to vibrate at a higher level to argue and disagree LESS and be able to live in Peace.

Do I believe we can, YES! Will we? I’m not sure. I have hope! Yet, in the meantime, I prepare. Do I have all the answers, no.

One of my friends posted something on Facebook the other day that shook me. She was highlighting the need for MORE gun control and more rules, and more, blah blah blah… and I didn’t say anything or comment, but that’s opposite where my gut feeling goes on this issue. And perhaps she forgot that a past University president (where we both worked at the time) QUIT his job for the University to go to work for a gun manufacturer!!!

Guns in the right hands, trained and skilled hands, for example SAVE LIVES! I’d rather be on a ranch with Ted Nugent at the end times than sitting alone in a cave meditating, though don’t get me wrong, I reach for ENLIGHTENMENT and I love caves, but when the army of insane maniacs are coming over the hills to ravage and plunder, I want someone who can help me protect myself and my family right there beside me! And I’m okay if you think I’m wrong, or if you disagree. As my first and highest thoughts are of FREEDOM and CHOICE. (and by the way, fighting for FREEDOM has been the driving force behind ALL of our USA military since the beginning.)

If someone entered my home with willful intent to harm myself or my husband, yes, we have a gun, and I know how to use it. Do we need a semi-automatic gun? No, but I might be able to scare off and fend off a would be attacker if we did. Thus, I am not against those. Besides, the criminals have them. That cat has already been let out of the bag, so to speak.

Does it come down to whether you want a slow dying process or fast one? I don’t know. And how are we “programming” people?

I pray as if it’s ALL up to Omniscience–God’s timing and act as if it’s ALL up to ME (in particular for myself and those close to me, as I know I cannot and don’t want to CONTROL the world). If I am to “go out” that way (quickly with a gun), then I am ready for the Grand Beyond. Do I hope others are not “taken out” that way, yes. But I also don’t want to see others suffer and go to the Grand Beyond by the “slow death” of chronic illness either. And that’s why I do what I do.

My dad took me hunting with him when I was growing up, and we ate squirrel and venison, rabbit, and so forth. But gradually over the years, my dad gained more compassion for the animals and quit hunting, but that desire, not to hunt anymore, came out of his HEART. He grew his heart over the course of his life to BE more loving.

And as an aside here, I’d like to say that when the powers that be take pharmaceutical ads off TV, I might reconsider my stance on guns, but for now, all I can do is raise awareness that EVIL lies in humans’ hearts, and it’s impossible to legislate morality.

Book Review: New Perspectives, Past Lives

Book Review: New Perspectives, Past Lives

A beautiful soul-reaching, inspiring, reverent, vulnerable, and enlightening read!

Book Review (showing Book Cover): New Perspectives, Past Lives

Shari Hinkle’s book, New Perspectives, Past Lives is a book that I spent quite a while reading as it touched me deeply. Knowing Shari personally, having traveled with her (and a group) to Ireland, England, and Scotland in the summer of 2019 helped too, as I could hear her voice in my head as I read, and put a frame around some things she’s told me.

Meet Shari

Massage therapist, Pilates instructor, and new author, Shari Hinkle, Connects with me on so many levels! And we can talk for hours, even while she’s massaging this body that I inhabit! LOL (then again, I am always intrigued and asking questions of most of my massage therapist (LMT) friends! Go figure!)

Shari and I seek and observe (and then share) many of the synchronicities that we each experience. And we both love talking about anything that’s vibrational in nature, Energy Medicine, personal responsibility and choices, as well as, how We Are All Connected (and interconnections that are ALL around us)!

After having many profound past life regression sessions with Patricia McGivern and writing this book, Shari also offers past life regression sessions to clients. And if you’re interested, continue reading and consider connecting with Shari for your own session.

Interconnections and Vibrations

Throughout New Perspectives, Past Lives, Shari offers us more about how everything is interconnected through Vibration. She explains why we use phrases like, “feeling blue,” “out of the blue,” and “green with envy.” (Remember, color is a vibration).

Shari also explores how our soul can draw us to a physical place and location, such as how we were drawn to the Sacred Sites of visit Ireland, England, and Scotland. She calls this kind of draw an “energy of connectedness.”

Layers of Energy

Shari writes about the layers of Energy and lessons she learned from re-experiencing her past lives through her hypnosis past life regressions sessions with Patricia McGivern.

Shari was re-introduced to characters as she made her way through a series of past life regressions with Patricia, and some of those persons (or personages) were people she’s met in THIS life! Baffling and thrilling, right? I won’t spoil it for you, but when you read it, look closely at the character, Gilda.

In one past life, Shari learned that “There is Power in the Pause.” (capitals mine) I meditated on that sentence for some time. (And as you may remember I love the book, Power over Force, and as a writer the word Power tends to always leap off a page!)

I found that Shari’s way of explaining bodily sensations were unique in this book, and I believe that’s because of the training in massage and Pilates she’s had. She puts a special spin on things that I’ve felt but had a hard time describing! Here’s one quick example,

The “imprint” of energy began to magnify up to my brow bone and then around my head.”

From New Perspectives, Past Lives by Shari Hinkle

Loving reminders

In New Perspectives, Past Lives, Shari touched on something one of my grandfathers always used to say, “Stop and smell the flowers.” Statements such as these, as I read them, make me feel as though my family on the other side of The Veil are sitting beside me! Ah! Love it.

Some layers of stuck energy actually hinder us from living up to our highest potential, or keep us from “shining bring” as Shari says. I know after our trip to the Sacred Sites on our Sacred Celtic Journey in July 2019, I began writing emails–even business emails–starting with the words, “Hello bright shining ones.” I had never done that before!

If you think re-living a past life experience might be painful, know that a hypnotherapist can bring you back to reality very quickly. And that immediately, or within some short time period following the session, you’ll probably feel relief (either physical, mental, or emotional) from having gone through the process and released something that had been bound in that former life. That’s certainly been my experience, as well as gain broader, deeper, and a much more intimately personal understanding of spirit, Omniscience God, sense of Compassion for others, and ALL.

In summary

New Perspectives, Past Lives is soul-expanding, and mesmerizing. It is relevant (especially if you have unexplained body pain), enlightening, and curious–in the mystical way.

For me, the new perspective I gained confirmed once again that, Everything Resolves to Gratitude.

Buy New Perspectives, Past Lives here. It is available as a paperback and on Kindle (so you can read it on your smartphone like I did).

What LIGHTS me up? Divine Flame

What is it that lights me up? What’s the Divine Flame?

My purpose is what lights me up.

I sit and look at my PEACE board that I drew for my Integrated Spiral™ program. And what I see, what I know is that I AbSOULutely love to talk and share from my Soul about holistic health, healing, transformation, and of course, Omniscience God and Spirit! ❤️🦋🌀

Per my body graph:When I feel resistance, or frustrated, it is because I made a decision by mental reasoning. My strategy is to respond until I feel satisfied. Unless I am a subtype of Manifestor, my job was never to be the Peacemaker I felt forced to be.

Yesterday, I let go…

Divine Flame

I let go of a 3 year friendship and wellness community (of which I had been a vocal and very visible part of—both on social media and blogging). Done.

Pain pushes until vision pulls.

I walked barefoot in the hot Florida sand.

I cried cleansing tears for less than 5 minutes.

My grief turned to compassion easily. —That’s because I do my Byron Katie “turnarounds.” And “go general” as Abraham-Hicks say. I am very adept at finding my next better feeling thought.

I worked my program of Spiral mechanics on my feelings. —I go deep to rise above, remembering what I have learned from my teachers (Dispenza, Lipton, Hof, Beckwith, Sadhguru, Lama Nicholas, Terrence McKenna, etc) so I can integrate and embody MORE.

What happened? WHY end a friendship?

NO ONE seems suspicious of the mainstream narrative. And while I am not necessarily suspicious, I do question and push back when I feel the need to take care of myself. I still Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life! Yes, I do! I read my own book over and over to remind mySelf.

Until now, for most of my life of 59 years, I have been a peacemaker. I would most naturally choose to back down from a confrontation.

But I am becoming more discerning.

I used to walk away from a fight because when one walks away, the fight ends. I learned that from the years I watched my parents argue, yell, and bicker. It’s the path of least resistance for me. Call it a coping skill. Whatever. It worked for me. It allowed me to give myself compassion. To love mySelf.

So, I don’t judge mySelf for that.

Yes, I have burned bridges in the past. It was necessary and I have no regrets. It kept me “safe.” Whatever that really means.

But NOW?

Now, I want to stand my sacred ground.

I don’t want to back down.

My Irish ire is up. Haha!

I have grown a backbone.

I know I’m a good person. But it’s more than that, (and because I know we are Energy beings, and that it’s ALL ENERGY), I am a multidimensional WHOLE person, who is worthy of being heard, at least, if not respected or honored. Those are all just labels anyway.

Yes, I am worthy to BE HERE NOW. Bless it!

I love to listen to Russell Brand, Brian Rose, Dr Joe Dispenza, Sadhguru and those leaders who can look and value ALL perspectives.

I teach Integrated Spiral™ courses because they have grown me into WHOLENESS!

🔵 Mirror ball: Valuing ALL perspectives

🌱 Growing & F-L-O-W-I-N-G (Everything Resolves to Gratitude)

☯️ Kaleidoscope: Finding value in Everything, Interconnectedness (We Are All Connected)

Yesterday. I was triggered by certain personal messages and responses, that differed from past conversations on the particular triggering topic, which I totally had not expected. Yep, I was blind-sided.

In the online community, of which we are both a part of many are supportive of each other. And I was often told what a wonderful person I was when introductions were made. We were supposed to be uplifting, inclusive, spreading love & light, ETC.

Well, I’m apparently not so wonderful anymore! Make one perceived misstep and it’s judgment city! Ha!

I simply brought an issue to light that a simple, “okay” would have been all the communication I needed. If that had happened, everyone would have easily moved on with their day. But, noooo!

Thus today, I witness the power of the Divine Flame 🔥 to burn away what isn’t necessary in my life and clear another path forward. We’re off to see the wizard, as the song says! ❤️🦋🌀🎼〰️🔥🙏☯️

Themes that runs through my life

  • Airwaves
  • Connection
  • CB Radio
  • Voice (Human Design speaks to this too, i.e. Throat – useful in getting attention)
  • Tone
  • Singing
  • Ego / Not being heard/acknowledged. My Spirit knows it doesn’t really matter. And that what does matter is ALIGNMENT
  • Healing: colitis/asthma all seeking peace from stress, hostility, fear, self preservation because I felt suffocated
  • Loved church (learning about God)
  • Loved chiropractic and how good it made my body feel, breathe easier
  • Loved to play not fight – why did others break my toys?
  • Loved the little old family cemetery—though little scary that was behind our neighbors house
  • Loved horses, cats, dogs
  • Loved driving, riding motorbikes
  • Deep thinker from talking more with adults than children when I was growing up
  • Loved to go down the street (escape home)*
  • Loved to play on the tracks / golf course, both opposite ends of my street*

*Wrote about this in First Friends

My Mission is unfolding

I’m noticing that a person’s mission can be different throughout life. I desire my mission to fulfill my purpose.

How?

Perhaps by doing all of the following:

  • Blogging
  • Writing books
  • Creating courses
  • Public speaking
  • Vlogging
  • Podcasting
  • Singing
  • Emceeing events

What’s a crazy thing I could do?

Put on a huge event showcasing ENERGY (Resonance Academy types, solar and off grid types, original music / songwriters, hand crafting artisans, storytellers, alchemists, holistic wellness practitioners, yogis, etc.)

What’s in my way?

What actions am I not taking?
What are my excuses?
What’s the real reason, belief that is holding me back?

Fear of Failure Fear of Success (I’ll have to quit my job, and my struggle is hugely tied to my education and career)

Fear of being told to “just get over yourself” (which I’ve already heard twice since starting to share my unapologetic truths), so guess I should just go BIG

Fear I don’t have a thick enough skin (because I’m so raw, empath)

Too old and not have enough energy

Fear of uncontrolled outcomes (like shock of spider, snake appearing on me)I can’t handle it (At the bottom of every fear)

Fear of upsetting those I love or who love me

What are the turnarounds?

Now, to TURN those around.

I have been successful in life.

I have failed, been scared, and risen from the ashes!

I have survived much worse than somebody’s judgement

I am continually growing my skin and participate in Empath Evolution and Women’s Soul Journey.

I’m wise and age is just a number. Look at all those older than me doing amazing things!

I don’t have to know how to handle every shocking event! Yet, I can handle it.

I will manage it (step by step).

We’re meant to do hard things.

Being unapologetic is freeing.

Who DO I think I am?

Look at what your ancestors struggled through to bring YOU into the world!! I acknowledge my ancestors DAILY

Don’t keep writing your future from your past. Write about the feelings of it, and then the details.

Lesson to grandchildren: I am
Let go of limiting beliefs Know power, strengths, Fears.

Who implanted these fears in me?

Stop fixing it – pop the DOING “bubbles“

Don’t sweat the small stuff

You and I are worthy

What’s bugging me?

Do something about it

Hang out with positive people!

Hang out with children

Hang out with older people

Ask them what they think, and listen! ❤️🦋🌀😘

What’s your vision?

Your core message to the world lights you up!

Transformation-hope-don’t give up

What do you think is stopping you?

Keynotes are different than aspiring free talks

What’s my vision?

My transferrable skills, credentials, spill over to this arena because I am a detective, scientist, tester, credible.

The vision of my future that fits in a picture frame.

Before accepting new commitments, look at my board and see if new opportunities align!!! Big one!! Especially after yesterday 6/14/21

Time and Saying Goodbye

These are the kind of things many of us experience. I just happen to keep a diary of notes.

In my pages regarding, TIME I found these:

Time, time, TIME

May 26th, 2015

I said goodbye to my granddaughter, Jennie.

It was in this moment that I uncovered one of my first limiting beliefs.

I’d said, “grandma has to work” as I kissed Jennie’s face, arm and leg and said I will see you in two months when mommy brings you to WV.

But Jennie looked me in the eyes with such intent and said, “Come with us grand-ma” (yes, grand ma in two words). And it broke my heart because I also wanted to go with them. And as I said “Grandma has to work” it resonated deep within my body. Ugh!I I don’t want to have to work AND I never again want to shut the car door for her and let her leave like that.

I told her, “Jennie, you have more places to go and other people to see on your adventure.” But, I wanted to really mean it, without feeling so much energetic pull to “not let her go”!

That was six years ago (as of this writing), and Jennie has called herself by her full first name, Jennifer, for several years. They grow up so fast!

I’ve only seen Jennifer a few times since then (annually on average, except 2020-2021 when we chose not to travel due to COVID and never knowing when interstate travel could be shutdown).

I also have twin granddaughters I’d love to hug and hold before they start preschool in a couple months. Not seeing them two years in a row makes me feel awful! I have missed sooo much!!

May 26th is also my son’s birthday, so I bet that had me feeling a bit more emotion (simply from the standpoint of always celebrating it with him).

I recognize my children and granddaughters have their own lives, and tell myself this often to tamp down my negative emotions and contain the sadness I feel (for not living near them or seeing them as often as I would love).

March 18th, 2016

“And birth is only the beginning. It is overwhelming sometimes to ponder how courageous and brave it is of each soul to agree to this carnal ride.

Oh, how bumpy and bizarre this ride! How curious this journey of becoming human. How mysterious and magical to be in a living, changing, growing, wonderful body!

As an adult, we think we’re big enough, strong, and tough enough to survive, but we know the body and mind are fragile too.

Imagine when we are in the womb, how fragile, delicate, and vulnerable we are. Oh, how indescribable it must be!

So, let us all pray and meditate daily about how grateful we are to have been born–to be here!

We are able to live, move, and have our being, while not every soul who desires and strives to be here, makes it.

And lets be kind to our bodies, our children, and each other. For we are all blessed to be here, and IN Joy relish the time we have on this magnificent planet.

Amen. Namaste. OM – Sheila Murrey

5 years later, on March 18th, 2021 I had an Aha moment about the preceding paragraph when I was going through about 500 writing “Notes” that I had on my iPhone (because yes, I write a LOT, I just don’t publish often due to my job and other commitments).

The Aha was realizing (seeing with REAL EYES), that I’d written that paragraph 3 years BEFORE my dad passed/crossed over, transitioned, or had his “Celebration Day” to the Grand Beyond, and on the DATE that he and I had planned to meet each other, which is another story in and of itself.

February 20th, 2017

Oh! One of the things I hate, is wasting TIME… and I feel like a lot of time has been wasted since Feb. 2020. But, here’s a list of things I was working on to find balance / forgiveness about in 2017:

  • Liars, manipulators, narcissists
  • DuPont, Monsanto/Bayer, Big Pharma
  • Big Oil, Fracking (use solar, wind, geothermal instead!! We do!)
  • Deforestation unless you are replanting trees — use bamboo instead!!
  • Rayon (grandmother poisoned by Viscose factory – they sold out to avoid lawsuits in the 60s/70s)
  • Polyester, Nylon, Patent leather.
  • Plastic (though some BPA free kinds are helpful when camping) (Stop using / stop buying new plastic. Clean up beaches. Watch the film Sonic Sea.)

I began to daily recognize that shit is a necessary fertilizer by which we grow, though it smells and I don’t always like it.

When any of these people, places, or circumstances come my way, I let it go as best I can to Limitless Omniscience God, and forgive them, as they know not what they do.

I hold compassion for my imperfect self, because my reactive mind, sometimes, feels PTSD type sensations.

So, I must feel and own my feelings. And respond somewhat harshly in the moment to be heard, based on the environment I’m in. I don’t always quickly access my intellect, and I understand why (amygdala response).

There are only 3 ways to resolve any problem:

Accept it, Change it, or Avoid it.

When we visit in person again

I’ll show my granddaughters Qigong forms.

I’ll kiss their Third Eye.

I’ll teach them EFT – Tapping. And some spiral energy medicine.

And I’ll teach them how to appreciate our time together vs. feeling sad or upset that our time together feels so short.

We’ll play in the clothes I took to them from my mom (that my mom had saved in my grandmother’s cedar closet), and explain how they can wear them when they are teenagers.

And we’ll go to the Chaos and Kindness store and to Art Escape.

We will paint together and make things.

We’ll bounce on their trampoline together too! And we’ll camp, snuggle, color, and make jewelry together. 😉

We will cherish each moment of Presence.

We will figure out a way to bottle the smell of their hair. Because that’s one of the things I miss the most about not being with them. ❤️🦋🌀〰️

Why are we living during this challenging time?

For anyone wondering why they are living during this time,
“Did you think the Creator would create unnecessary people in a time of such terrible danger?”

Know that you yourself are essential to this world. Understand both the blessing and the burden of that. You yourself are desperately needed to save the soul of this world.

Did you think you were put here for something less?

In a Sacred Hoop of Life, there is no beginning and no ending.

Each of us is important and have a mission. Much love! ❤️

Many blessings to you in ALL ways. ❤️🦋🌀〰️

Chakra Balancing:Yoga to Balance Mind-Body, Spirit and Soul

I am sooo glad I attended this aWEsOMe class four years ago:

Chakra Balancing:
Yoga to Balance the Mind, Body, & Spirit offered by Dr. Ronald Porter in St. Petersburg, Florida

In the yogic tradition, the chakras are known as wheels of spinning energy found throughout the body.

Usually, energy has the ability to flow though us with ease. However, the situations we encounter in life can often leave our energy blocked and unable to flow freely.

Gentle way to bring healing to your body. It’s as close to you as your breath.

Working with the chakras through yoga is a means of restoring a healthy flow of energy throughout the subtle energetic body, therefore bringing balance to the physical body.

Dr. Ronald K. Porter proved to me (during the workshop) that through movement and breath, I could partner with the Energies in my body to heal it!

In the class, we explored both the meaning of the chakras and subtle energetic body, and engaged in a yoga practice specifically focused on balancing the chakras.

Practicing yoga in this way, and incorporating it into my soul helped me realize I was also doing some very deep soul work too. Thus, why I added Soul to the title of this post. ❤️🦋🌀☯️

I found relief in my body, as I did the breathwork to move Energy into spaces and places I had not focused on in years, if ever.

Specifically guiding my breath, brought immediate healing to one of my knees, and kept the energy medicine working on it for several days later! I knew I had found a healing method I was going to continue to use for the rest of my life.

I now incorporate basic elements of this in my transformational self-coaching program, Integrated Spiral. Won’t you join me?

Book Review: What Dreams Have Come

Book Review: What Dreams Have Come

A beautiful soul-reaching, inspiring, reverent, vulnerable, and enlightening read!

What Dreams Have Come book cover

What Dreams Have Come is an excellent book! I read it within 24 hours, as it is highly engaging, elegantly, and lovingly written!

Intimately personal

Film producer, co-founder of the Spiritual Cinema Circle, and author, Stephen Simon, with his beloved wife Lauren (who gently crossed over to the Grand Beyond in her sleep), provides us ALL the opportunity to gain a sense of the “Other Side,” while welcoming us into their personal lives (by sharing the synchronicities of how they met, including family photos, and intricate details).

Over the years of seeing Stephen host the monthly DVD Spiritual Cinema Circle, we felt we had gotten to know him, personally. And he would often speak of Lauren and all the work she did for the Circle. We also felt Connected to Stephen and Lauren through their posts on Facebook. But never did I feel as privy to their innermost thoughts as I have sensed from reading this book. If eyes are the windows to the soul, then books such as these are doors to the heart.

Intertwining honor and love

Stephen and Lauren lovingly crafted a book rich in story that graciously includes the ways they honored and cared for each other (and continue to), as well as demonstrate the ways in which they highly value inclusivity (by bringing us in and honoring their family, neighbors and friends—including my favorite spiritual author).

Emotionally stirring

I cried, laughed, and yes, had jaw-drop moments while reading, What Dreams Have Come. I resonated with much of Stephen and Lauren’s candor and playfulness. (And not to give anything away, but my husband and I often recite our favorite movie lines to each other too!)

There were the touching moments of serendipity and synchronicity built into the way Stephen and Lauren met, and noted all the way through their marriage. The way they shared their pain and triumphs were inspiring to me.

I also really loved the end of the book—totally thrilling! And of course, this is not the end of a love and life together for the Simons.

UPDATE: Please listen to Stephen Simon’s interview with Allison Dubois: Interview

In summary

This book is soul-reaching, and deeply inspiring. It is reverent, vulnerable, and enlightening. I’m in awe of what Love can do—in ALL ways.
