Love Transformed by Death,
Death Transcended by Love
This story has struggled for its voice for 16 years. After going through the darkest of times and dealing with a shameful secret for far too long, it is ready to share its message with you.
Swallowed: A True Story is here to delve into some of the most pressing and profound things that affect us as humans. As our elders taught in the form of story and allowed the interpretation of the story to be part of the teaching, Swallowed is an odyssey to embark upon. I share the intricacies of deep despair in this spiritual memoir, having been the recipient of child abuse, lived through learning my parents were splitting up because each had a girlfriend (yes, you read that right), to surviving “Suicide High,” drug abuse, cutting and other actions fueled by self loathing– all before reaching the age of 17! And, that was only the beginning.
Along this shared journey you will realize you are not alone in your struggles through your own major life traumas. The sense that you may have of your personal healing process being convoluted, strange or abnormal will fade. Your ability to ride with the ebb and flow of true healing will flourish. Your willingness to explore deeper parts of your being and subconscious will reach new heights. As you come to the end of your vicarious journey, you will be changed, awed, stirred and able to look at “the inexplicable” from a slightly different perspective. And depending upon how deeply you allow the story into your life, your view of death and the afterlife may never be the same.
Swallowed: A True Story…it’s that good!
But don’t take my word for it, here’s what others are saying about
their own odyssey with the story:
SWALLOWED is as thought provoking and illuminating as it is pulsing with passion…she endearingly coaxes and masterfully guides us into a brave new world of uncompromising integrity and unconditional love…far beyond the fallacy of death. This is a page-turning, curiosity stalking, freefall into a larger Reality of which we are all a part.
–S. ShaNoan, author of Place of the Mystical Thunderbolt
From the first page of “Swallowed,” this brilliantly written memoir will hold your attention until the end… everyone can learn from her journey. I laughed and cried and cried again as I read this book, and I recommend it to anyone.
–Marianne Spitzer, author of Gypsy Spirits and the Princess Brittney Stories
‘Swallowed’ struck a deep and resonant chord within me, and is a reminder that we are all connected, all part of something greater than what we can see, if we only allow ourselves to be open to it. It kept me thinking and speculating long after I’d finished it.
–Connie Looson, author of A Bird in the Hand
I devoured every chapter! Riveting and relatable on many levels, this true saga of unrequited but enduring love will stay with you long after you turn the final page.
–Elinor Williams, author of Elinor’s Life: Exposed, Examined, Explained
Surely this book will sooth the grieving, as well as ignite curiosity in the agnostic. Bound to be a classic!
–Susan Schenck, LAc, author of The Live Food Factor and Beyond Broccoli
Swallowed – a downright page-turning gut-churning barn-burning book from the first to the very last word. Yes, it’s that good!
–Deke Castleman, author of Whale Hunt in the Desert
If you’ve read this far, you are likely a kindred spirit. Because of our newly recognized kinship, I want you to know that if you are skeptical about these topics, my “beliefs” about them, or just about the price tag on the book, I offer a 100% money back guarantee. If you read the book from cover to cover and are not moved in some way (for a whole year after purchase) and you send me an email about how unmoving it truly was for you, I will gladly refund you the cost of book.
Just to be clear this is not a step-by-step guide or how-to manual. There are plenty of those available and most of them are informative and helpful. But by embracing and spending time with Swallowed, the magic of story telling as a form of instruction for life’s lessons continues. This is a true story of one woman’s account of the darker side of life and the often brighter, unseen world. It will not guarantee you the same realizations about life nor any of the other-worldly experiences that she’s had, but because of the holographic nature of our minds, you may be unexpectedly surprised when you have them! And please, I would sincerely love it if you were to email me about them! Buy now and let’s chat about YOUR odyssey with Swallowed.
One of the many blessings of living in Cuenca is the abundance of fresh, whole foods. The fruits and veggies are amazing treats for the eyes and taste buds! There was some talk of the pitaya, pitajaya, or dragon fruit on the Conscious Cooking in Cuenca Facebook group recently and it reminded me of this poem I wrote shortly after my first experience with this delicacy, over three years ago. … [Read More...]
A tiny bit graphic, but hopefully moving and provocative, this weeks poem and its inspiration is self evident. I'm reading of several states petitioning for secession and although sad and somewhat troubling, it is not surprising. I have no desire to get political here, I only have a desire for sharing ideas that run deeper than what is on today's news. So, share away, please...and thanks for … [Read More...]
Although almost nothing about living in Cuenca is nostalgic for me, (yet) it does happen sometimes that a sound or a smell will bring back memories of some place I used to live, someone I once knew or a feeling I once had. I love that so much is new and different and I appreciate what allows me to remember what snippets of life was like back in the "ole country." This is what evolved out of … [Read More...]
