Write your journey. A chance to be a 1st-time author & a co-author with me happens by submitting Your memoir

Elephants Never Lie is a book series on the shadow (Elephant) that holds us back until we wake up to it and heal it. The 1st book is largely my personal memoir on the painful emotional journey that I called my life. I had to write that book to understand the emotional weights that I was carrying. I found these weights to be from early childhood, a disconnect from self-love, inherited emotions and past-lives. Dissolving this shadow freed me and changed my life in a most beautiful and profound manner.

The 2nd book in the series will be published by March 2021 and will contain a memoir of a bold, highly-intelligent, non-profit owner who grew up being told that she was stupid and incapable. Long into her adult life, after suffering repeated emotional and verbal abuse, as a continuation of the shadow from childhood, she discovered that she had a very high IQ, dissolved the shadow and profoundly changed her life and currently is helping others to do the same.

If you have never been an author; and yet, you have a story to tell, one of going from broken to bold, healing the shadow and emerging a spiritual warrior, please submit your story to me with the guidelines below.

  1. You must be willing to write 5 – 8 chapters (~25,000 – 55,000 words) of your memoir.
  2. Your writing does not have to be perfect, as it will be edited.
  3. You will start by submitting a 1-page synopsis of your story as a spiritual warrior to: Michelle@Creatingforward.com
  4. Each submission will be judged on story content, its power to positively affect people, and writing style.
  5. One submission will be chosen by June 21, 2020 for a book to be released in late 2021.

“Elephants Never Lie”

Sedona healing author



One Woman’s Inner Journey to Release the Emotional Weight

With a feeling of ‘I can’t contain myself for such excitement!’, I just published my first book, Elephants Never Lie. It is a fictional novel about the empath Rebecca, a woman who over-does for others and has become so lost in despair that she has lost her way to happiness until she decides to write her own memoir. Writing her own story uncovers layers of pain and a subconscious mindset that holds her back so deeply that she falls into a past-life to learn more about herself and societal programs that lock us into suffering. To free herself from the unconscious hold of the past-life and from despair, Rebecca must own her gifts and find the inner determination to live a life based on her unique gifts without taking on negativity from others.

Please know that this book is based on real events and on a real transformation from broken to bold. This journey of consciousness is for those who are also on a spiritual path and looking within themselves for the keys to happiness.

Rebecca’s journey within herself and across worlds unlocks spiritual truths that awaken her out of despair and frees her into a life of love. The intention of the book is to do the same for the readers.

Elephants Never Lie relays true visits from loving beings and masters from other dimensions and my 1999 near-death experience in the hopes that the story, the love and the truth unlock the readers from any despair that they may be experiencing and motivate them to awaken their unique gifts in an act of self-love.

I’ll end by answering the question that so many people ask, “What is the elephant?”

The elephant is the subconscious and unconscious mind built up over lifetimes. It is hidden beliefs that we are not worthy of the absolute best or that suffering is normal in humanity.  These beliefs are our shadows that dim the light to our powerful selves. The ‘elephant’ is the consciousness of humanity that wants to keep individuals repressed, depressed weak and broken. It is a consciousness that allows people to take our power. It is time for the female within each being to reclaim their inner gifts and power. It is time to release the elephant.

Being Self-Contained

Self-containment is keeping your soul in your body, a state which you are completely aware of guidance system of the soul. Self-containment is owning faith and owning your own unique universal vibration in the face of all of the activity, ideas and responses from others.

Any type of fear (worry, angst, despair, etc) is a deterrent to self-containment. We have become so used to fear that we believe it to be normal. Fear is not normal, except for the simple fight-and-flight type of survival. Fear is something humans do to each-other, although usually unintentionally. When someone gives you something to worry about or makes you feel that you are not good enough, they are instilling a reason for you to separate and be dissociated from your own soul. They are taking your power; and again, they are likely doing this unintentionally. They take your power to keep you weak because they own a fear themselves. When you give yourself to their beliefs that are imbued with a fear themselves, you become dis-embodied which is the basis of losing your self-containment and inherent guidance system.

Having a central nervous system that is a grand antennae to the Universe, humans extract information from their environments. Unfortunately and fortunately for humans, their environments are a myriad of microcosms and macrocosms of data. Within each person are infinite systems communicating to one another. T-cells, enzymes, entire networks of immune cells, hemoglobin and entire networks ensuring that blood is effectively pumped throughout the body are just a minutiae of the microcosms that support the macrocosm, the human being.

Furthermore, in what appears to be outside of the person is another infinite system, worlds of data exploring itself to know itself. Plants, animals, rain, humans, medicine, business, plane tickets, bus rides, presidents, monarchs, computers, planets, stars, solar systems, cosmos speak to you. How magnificent it is that we get to experience these worlds, worlds that unlike the microcosms within our bodies, have their conscious hold on our 5-senses. Like the biological systems that support the body, every consciousness in existence, like yourself, is supporting the macro-cosmic universe. As you don’t tell your heart to pump, neither does the universe tell you to do your job. You are doing your job by being the unique you; yet, it is when you are holding the energies of others, when you are doing their jobs, that you have become lost in the data. To be human is to be divine. And to be human is to be an explorer. Exploring your own soul by experiencing life is the essence of self-containment. Believing in non-supportive feelings and ideas of others is going outside of yourself, a sure way of getting lost from internal guidance. Experiencing life while holding firm to your uniqueness, an imprint forever etched in the mind of the Universe, is the essence of feeling alive, energetic and self-contained.

The product of self-containment is the solid life.

With an information system so intimately vast and electrical, and a soul with its own determined will, the human has every way imaginable to get guidance on making them a happier, healthier and a more productive being. And, with an information system so intimately vast and electrical, the human has every way imaginable to get lost from the determined will of the soul.

The self-contained life is a life led only on the principles of inner-guidance.

Now this inner-guidance can seemingly come from without, such as a missed bus ride that led you to meet the manager of a recording studio to cut your first album. Yet, this is not coming from without. Humans are one within this vast electrical Universe, and entwined in such a perfection that every possibility of success has already been determined and is only waiting for you to line up with the gifts already determined for you.

You see, to live is divine. To thrive is to cooperate with the Universe and with each other. The manager who will cut your first album also had that knowledge within to be at that bus station at exactly the right time, and acted on that inner knowledge. Acting outside of that knowledge would have set your recording deal on another time-line. Acting outside of that knowledge is picking up the work of others, it’s picking up vibrations that do not support you, that do not support your greatest good and do not support that amazing jazz album that finally became a hit when you matched your vibration to its success.

Self-containment is the ability to stay within your unique vibration in the Universe, which is the only true job that you have, because it is when we are all doing this job that the Universe is in balance and the Earth thrives. Searching for answers from others, comparing yourself to others, worrying, or concerning yourself about the reactions from others are all acts outside of self-containment. Taking authority of how you feel, making decisions that are in your highest good and saying ‘no’ to others who attempt to place their burdens on you are all acts of self-containment.

I could propose many methods of getting back to your self-contained life, and I’ll give you this one to start. Today, go outside. Today, go look at the beauty of nature. Get up close to nature and look deeply within her structure, such as the veins in a leaf. Tell her how beautiful she is and own that feeling of beauty in your heart and soul. You’ll begin the process of eliciting only beauty in your feelings, words and deeds.

Welcome to My Winding Road, a Journey with Spirit

Iceland Winding RoadThe path may be long and winding, yet ushers us to our greater good! We are not living a journey; we are the journey.

You are a journey. You are being born into greatness. Each moment is a chance to take that step into who you are to become. Each moment is a chance to give birth to another bit of our authentic self.

Words can’t describe the immensity of truth that I saw in my near-death-experience, yet I try to put this into words so that the truth wins.

Ego wants to steal our chance to step into greatness. It does not want us to remember from where we come.  It does not want us to become great because it will die. The ego is not a single creation of one mind, one person. The ego was created by the collective consciousness and we have each tapped into a piece of it, identifying with it and believing in its repressiveness. Let go of what does not serve you. If the path is winding, it’s winding.  Whatever shows up is still the chance to remember the Light that you are.

My blogs are to remind people who they truly are. Spirit. My blogs are to help individuals remember their greatness. My blogs are to help get the ego out of the way so that the path clears and the curves straighten. My blogs are to remind that we are in control of the path.

This blog is a start. It’s a bit about my winding road. I hope you recognize some of yourself in it.

I wrote my first book while working 80 to 100 hours per week in the corporate world.  My heart wanted to put the workings of my soul into words.  My ego wanted to make money.  Therefore, I did both while yearning to move to Sedona, Arizona where I could write and heal, write and heal, write and heal.   I did move to Sedona and instead of writing and healing, I worked.  Well, Sedona forces the healing, the ‘waking up’ whether a person is doing their soul-calling or not. So, I have been healing, but now I’m focused on only the workings of my soul. As I do this, I’ll watch the Universe bring the money to be able to eat at the restaurants that my ego loves.  And, I’ll watch my ego diminish so that I have space to blossom.  These blogs are my ramblings of amazing events of the past, present and future that are the weaving of the Divine.  There is no separation between us and the Divine. We can either choose to retract and feel needy or fearful, or we can step up and claim the energies of the Divine weaving through us. This weaving got me here now, brought amazing beings into my life, from 3rd dimension and higher, and some day I’ll see my winding road as an airplane runway.

It all started where I grew up, in a small town north of Cincinnati, Ohio called Waynesville.  Waynesville may be the most haunted town in Ohio, as one book sites over 30 haunted houses, yet it doesn’t mention the house in which I grew up.  In retrospect, the ground on which my childhood home sat seems like a portal.  ‘Hauntings’ and the presence of other-wordly beings was almost daily.  Well into my teen years I had to sleep with all of my bedroom lights on, plus the stereo and the television just to drown out the noises of the spirits.  Some spirits were just attached to that land and living out some sort of life in another dimension. Yet some spirits were what I consider Masters (beings of a Light transcendent to the Earth) and it is these Masters that continue to drive me today.

I also had premonition dreams, especially of myself much later in life. Yet, the majority of my dreams were of places I had never seen before, not even on TV, such as cobblestone streets in little cramped villages not likened to the America in which I lived.  I later came to understand that the dreams were past-lives and mainly places and spaces in which I sort of left myself off.  Parts of me had become stuck from traumas in other lives.  Those traumas were being re-created in this life unconsciously in order to regain parts of myself.

One such issue was losing a kidney at the age of 11 and having severe back pain by the age of 13.  I refused to wear a back brace and instead decided to be done with all of these reoccurring pains in my 20’s.  I took up yoga and meditation and all symptoms were gone in 6 months. I became a Usui and Karuna Reiki Master and a fire-walking instructor.   I had teachers for the Reiki, such as William Rand from the International Center for Reiki Training.  My teachers for meditation and yoga were only Masters in Spirit who would randomly make a guiding-appearance. 

So, my passion for healing from the inside out began.  My understanding of soul-healing is deep and universal since I went through it all myself with only help from the Masters in dimensions much higher than our own.

I have been doing Soul-Healing and Reiki for over 25 years and now focus on group-healing, especially through books and seminars. Elephants Never Lie has been published and two more books are in the works for 2020. Both titles will be revealed in early 2020. The Elephants series is fictional novels that lead people through emotions to untangle subconscious fears and return to freedom, the essence of soul-power. Each book in the Elephant series contains a true memoir of a person who has gone from broken to bold.

My winding road did include 14 years in science and research, with 11 of those years in the corporate world.  I appreciate that, as it taught me well.

And today from Sedona, I focus on leading others out of those dark areas of the consciousness that is hiding their inner light. I help them to get in touch with their souls, with their own Spirit and with Mother Earth through private and group sessions, writings, events and journeys.

I will end with the hearts of my heart.  I am a mother to 2 amazing adult children, a son and a daughter, many cats (all passed) and one dog (recently passed).  There is nothing more heart-warming than laughing with my children and of course watching them expand, grow, succeed and mainly LOVE. I live with the love of my life and soul-mate, a gentle, caring man who entered my life as described in Elephants Never Lie.

Thank you for reading about me and I send you all the best and Love on your spectacular journey! May all of the good that you have given others, be returned to you in spades!
