something to do with the super-moon; things have settled down now in ways which have surprised even me.
Confucius said, “The road of life is long”; as a spiritualist I believe
that I will not leave this life until I have accomplished what I was put here to do. I know that Spirit of the 8th Fire one day soon will open as a
spiritual healing centre. I know that I am to share my Angels of the Road
experience through my writing. I know that I have a short allegory fiction to write. Also there was the possibility of going back to work in an industry that I love, working with street people.
After six months of trying to get something happening in Victoria. The job which I was interviewing for passed me over… so I asked the universe/god for guidance. What do I need to do first to move my life forward? The answer was clear (or so I thought) to write. OK don’t have
to be in the big city to do that, so I decided to move up island (Vancouver
Island), I chose Nanaimo because it is a medium size town with services, lots of green space and still on the coast.
I had a strong feeling that my art (I’m a pretty good painter & crafter) is to support me while I write and my writing will support the healing centre. A simple chain of events; now that I have been given some guidance.
So I moved into a little bachelor apartment, fully prepared to be inspired to create a few canvases and get this ball rolling. Here comes the surprise (the one I mentioned in my blog a couple of weeks back). There is a large children’s playground across the street from my building and I thought it would be fun to take my drum over and tell some Native legends to anyone who wished to listen. I know several Ojibwa Legends from when I lived in Thunder Bay and a few Mohawk Legends from when I lived in eastern Ontario. Suddenly one morning a new legend starting downloading into my brain. It came as a rhyme, a creation myth which introduces spiritual concepts of vibration, manifestation and interconnectedness to very young children. I did not see that coming… the idea of writing for children had never entered my head.
Surprise! I’m a children’s author LOL. I guess the expression of art will be illustrating this book ;-). It will be available well before the Holiday gifting season. In soft cover it should sell for about $12 - $15. No decision has been made on how it will be distributed. I will need to consult with my friend Justis Chase (a medium & spiritual coach) who has done some self publishing. If I decide to self publish, I will go with a small run of 100 books. There is also something called publish-on-demand I will look into as an option. Until I learn more I really can’t say… If you have any ideas you want to share on publishing options please email me.
Have a joyous week.
