Break Free of What Is Holding Back

When you feel stuck in life, and you just are not living life to its full potential, it is often tempting to blame outside factors for these issues. There will always be factors out of our control. The way we handle these circumstances can hold us back. The power to turn our lives around lies in being aware. Having a fixed mindset can limit opportunities. A fixed vs. growth mindset comes down to how you view your own capabilities. Someone with a fixed mindset thinks they have a certain set of talents, and trying anything else is entirely pointless. While this may sound like an overgeneralization and something that you would never do, many of us approach life with a fixed mindset without even fully realizing it. Many of us go through life with regrets. No matter what we do, there will always opportunities and choices we miss. What holds us back is when we dig into regret and stay there. Let go of negative self-talk. This is the first step to move forward. “Do You Have a Dream Workbook 5 Keys to Realize Your Dream” will assist you with a positive direction for your life’s challenges.

Tips for Coping with Covid Changes

Whether we like it, change is a fact of life that we cannot avoid. There are some changes we expect, but life also throws us some curveballs that we never see coming. Going through a pandemic is one life change most of us never predicted, and now that it is here, we have experienced just how quickly our everyday lives can be upended. These unexpected changes are both big and small. They come with some surprising benefits, along with extra challenges. There is a lot outside our control, but what you can control is how you respond to these changes. As Grace Allison says, in her book, ‘Do You Have a Dream Workbook 5 Keys to Realize Your Dream’, it takes “courage, confidence, and creativity” to change your life for the better. When we are confronted with changes outside our control, the only thing we can do is be flexible and adapt. It is perfectly okay if you are feeling sad, frustrated, angry, and even anxious. These feelings are valid, but what you do not want to do is let them consume you. Working with a therapist or spiritual advisor is one healthy way to process these emotions.

Do You Need To Be Rescued?

Did you know you have a five-year-old child old inside your belly? Mental health professionals call it the inner child. Its job is self-preservation. When a life storm comes along like the pandemic, the little one takes the driver’s seat. When you feel scared, your heart beating fast, mind swimming, what will I do next, who will rescue me? The little one inside sends you in directions to protect you. Sometimes the direction might eat and drinking foods for comfort. Using credit cards, and spending money you do not have. When a crisis hits help the little one to feel safe. Take care of yourself by creating priorities. Eat healthy foods for each meal. Sleep at least six hours a night, naps when needed. Exercise walking helps the inner child to quiet. Meditation, prayer and giving thanks for what you have. The inner child likes to communicate through writing. I recommend my “Do You Have a Dream Workbook 5 Keys to Realize Your Dream”. The self-directed Workbook has ten chapters with a 5 step-process to direct you in a positive direction. When used for at least thirty days you will feel greater confidence, courage, and creativity.

Dream Book Becomes a News Story

The stay-at-home instruction turned my attention to ways to learn. I signed up with Burke Allen of Allen Media Strategies for a four-week class meeting Monday and Wednesday nights. Using the Coronavirus as the news hook, Burke focused on how to find and build relationships with news professionals. Our first class “How to write a News Pitch”. On the webinar Burke used a slideshow as he taught. The pitch, different from a press release, is on a specific news angle around your book. I used my “Do You Have a Dream Workbook 5 Keys to Realize Your Dream”. When we had written our pitch, Burke did a five-minute video interview. I learned my pitch needed to be different and shorter. Our last assignment was to write three pitches, find three reporters and write why we chose the reporter and pitch. I sent my pitches to BlogTalkRadio Host Jeanie Brosius of B-Now Women Radio. My interview on June 4th, “4 Ways to Get Your Life Back”. Burke’s class is for serious authorpreneurs who want to bring their brand to the next level. With kindness, Burke paid special attention to each student. We received copies of the slides and notes. Burke also made helpful notes on our pitches.

How to Feel Safe in a Pandemic

Are you huddled in your bed scared? I felt fear when I walked into the grocery store yesterday. Store personnel wearing masks. People rushed away if I came near. Across our planet, the twenty-four-hour news media is blowing the wind of fear. Like the wild west of old days, social media has no boundaries or rules where people honor one another. What can you do to feel safe? Create boundaries and an environment that supports you. Turn off the television. Stop scaring yourself with the nightly news. Instead, read a book, watch a movie or do a crossword puzzle. We can get through the storm if we take charge of our mind and emotions. Each day give thanks for the food, shelter, the healthcare workers and love that you have. Reach out, call your family and friends on the phone. Create your own world of peace. We will get through this crisis together. Be a peacemaker to yourself. Spread the joy and gratitude of life and living. #change #

Do You Need to Be Rescued?

Albert Einstein, "The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination." Thought experiments are mental experiments that ask what if of the causes to effects, or effects to causes. Are you feeling scared during the current health crisis? Loss of work, loss of wages, will I get sick if I go to the grocery store? Running scared can lead to spiraling down into depression. Watch your thoughts; think of them as actual things rather than imaginary constructs. This helps you to understand how powerful they can really be. Coming down on yourself only hinders you and holds you back. Thoughts are powerful creations that shape our lives. Ask instead, what if I had all the health, wealth and happiness now? What would I be doing? First, take care of yourself. Eat wholesome food, sleep, exercise and find creative ways to stay positive. Read a book, cook a new recipe, pray, take a walk, interact on social media with friend and family. Keep in mind what you put out into the world comes back. Take charge of your life. “Do You Have a Dream Workbook 5 Keys to Realize Your Dream” provides powerful insights on life and living. The manual emphasizes the use of the higher levels of spiritual concepts such as dreams, faith, hope, forgiveness, and joy.

Are You A Victim or Victor?

When I was a kid, I heard this song, “You’ll Never Walk Alone, When you walk through a storm, hold your head up high and don’t be afraid of the dark. At the end of the storm is a golden light. Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart and you'll never walk alone.” We are globally walking through a storm. Will we be a victim of our broken heartedness or victor rising above to a new awareness of who we are? Over the years, I have come through physical, mental and emotional abuse, homelessness and poverty. I have learned that I am not my circumstances, I can go into my inner creativity and higher mind to find solutions. There is a spiritual purpose to what is happening. We have an inner power to face the darkness. Is this the end or a new beginning? Are you searching for a new direction and want to take charge of your life? “Do You Have a Dream Workbook, 5 Keys to Realize Your Dream” has powerful keys to assist you. You are never alone, find the one you are waiting for, YOU. Follow me on Facebook and send me your email address on Messenger. I will send you the codes for a free Dream Book #audiobook. #wfh

What Really Matters?

In 1989, God presented me a wake-up call. Physicians pronounced me with cervical disease. Desperate and scared, I recited to myself, 'I can't have cancer, I have work to do.' I was a fearless competitor forcing my way through whatever got in my path.  I did not know how far fear pushed me. My broken heartedness from abusive parents, and a spouse who raped me for five years created many challenges of dread and worry. With cancer, it was time to do meaningful self reflection. I could no longer run away and bury my shattered spirit. It was my dark night of the soul that I recalled a phrase Jesus Christ, seek ye first the kingdom of heaven and all things will be given to you. The night before my hysterectomy seated in bed at home I closed my eyes and prayed for healing. Within a few moments while I was awake I felt myself being raised above my bed into a transcendent golden light. The radiant, holy spirit enveloped me. After surgery the doctors reported no disease appeared in the biopsy. The message for me was to love, trust, forgive, and take care of myself first, so I could take care of others.

My Crazy Oprah Story

My crazy story began in 2006. The real estate market across our country was intense. Home transactions for me reached thirty homes in one year. When the real estate market collapsed I was homeless, jobless, and penniless. What was I to do? My friend Sandi extended me a bedroom in her home until I could find employment.   By 2006 I published my first non-fiction work, “A Dream is a Wish the Heart Makes,” Now being destitute I turned to my sacred soul and my writing. I observed the Five Steps to Receiving your Dream and cleared the path to meet my intentions. I recorded each day for the next 30 days. By, February 1, 2007, I secured a position in commercial property management. By the end of March, I moved into a condo near White Rock Lake.  What if I could manifest being in Oprah’s Book Club audience? When I had my cable and internet, I participated in the Oprah Book Club website. In early December 2007, I received a telephone call from one producer at Oprah who welcomed me to attend the Ken Follett interview with his book “Pillars of the Earth” in January 2008. In the last two minutes of the show Oprah called on me to ask a question. I was on national television.

My Miracle Comeback

My journey of courage and creativity began In 1989 when doctors pronounced me with cervical cancer. When I learned the diagnosis, I called in the Light and imagined I felt the hem of Jesus’s shroud. Faith in the Holy Spirit in God and Jesus Christ showed me strength. The night before my hysterectomy I relaxed in my bed imagining the surgeons and myself in loving. Deep in reflection and prayer, the Holy Spirit raised me out of my body into a ball of perfect love and light. The biopsies after surgery showed there was no disease. The transformation in my body from a life-threatening illness to wellness with a purpose was a testimony to my years of walking the sacred path. The vision of publishing my first novel, “Einstein’s Compass: A YA Time Traveler Adventure” took a lifetime to compose. People and opportunities to promote my story came forward as I focused each day to receive the next part of the book. It takes courage to dream. When I call myself into God’s loving grace, I raise above the Fantasied Expectations that Appear Real (FEAR) and receive an inspired direction to advance forward.

Do you dream?

I wrote this chapter on believing in God because I made a lot of choices in my life without God.I lived a life in darkness and experienced a life of suffering. I want to bring freedom to my readers as I have discovered it.Is there something you want to have, do or be? To create anything takes knowing yourself. What gets in your way of receiving your dreams? Could it be an illusion of what will people think of me if I pursued my dream? What is holding you back? Jesus said, "If you do not know yourself then you will live in poverty and you are the poverty." Instead he said, "The Kingdom of Heaven is within". He warned that the Savior is not to rescue you but to help you face your own limitations by pursuing the love of God and his grace within. Peace be with you and within you. If you have a dream and want freedom toward your dreams then "Do You Have a Dream Workbook 5 Keys to Realize Your Dream" can assist you with your quest.

What would you be doing with your life if ?

Through hard lessons of trying to be a good person and strive for success, I discovered a simple rule, "Take care of yourself first, so you can take care of others." I am a natural caregiver. My father was an abusive alcoholic; my mother and sister died by suicide and suffered from mental illness. At ten years old and the oldest of four children, I became the responsible one in the family. By the time I was in my twenties, I was broken and exhausted from giving to those around me. By the time I was forty, I had cervical cancer. It took a life threatening disease to wake me up and begin to find self worth. No one was going to "rescue me". I asked myself, "If you had all the health, energy and happiness, what would you be doing with your life? With a positive intention I found courage, confidence and creativity. In my Dream Book you too can create and discover your gifts and receive your dreams.

Blessed are the poor in spirit

The need to be rescued is responsible for codependent, addictive and often abusive relationships. What will fill this empty coldness? To feel so tortured is like living in hell. I know, I have lived this deep, dark night of the soul. This book of 200 pages is filled with forty years of my life and how to change a life of fear into one of fun. What made me want to change? I wanted to know what it was like to love and be loved. This heartfelt intention set me on an upward path of gratitude for all I am. However, you have to mean it with all your heart to create your happiness. So what do you dream about?

Live Your Dream

Today, depression and suicides are on the rise. No time in the history of our world have we had more people out of touch with their reality. Drugs, social media, violent outbursts everywhere are escalating. Addictions are running rampant. To lift ourselves up and out of the darkness we have to learn to re-attune ourselves to the spirit within.

No One Is Going to Care More About You Than You.

Change do you like it?

Turn fear into fun. Who made the rule that change had to be hard? In all my trials, I have found that tapping into my creativity made change easier. Creativity is a joyful and spiritual experience of incitement the inward feeling of excitement that changes the molecules and cells. Find your incitement your joy your dreams NOW!

Albert Travels to Atlantis

When I read that Albert Einstein developed his theory of light in the late nineteenth century I wondered how he came upon his advanced hypothesis in the middle of the horse and buggy age? I discovered Albert learned how to do mind experiments and used his creative imagination to jump off into the unknown. However, to create something so new I thought maybe Einstein's soul was from an advanced civilization and he was trying to remember what he had learned in his past life. Maybe Albert Einstein's soul was from the spiritual Atlantean era of peace where light and energy were used in various scientific ways. And, Albert's soul purpose was to bring the theories of light and time to change the course of history and advance mankind. EBook $1.99 #Amazon #GiftaBook #Stockingstuffer

Professor Winteler was his teacher who accelerated young Albert into a world of possibilities. "Einstein's Compass a YA Time Traveler Adventure" is now available on Amazon. #follow me on Bublish

Fallen Dark Angel Shapeshifts

While in his lifetime in Atlantis he was jealous of his Atlantean twin brother Arka and wanted recognition and power. So he drank a deadly potion of Draconian DNA that changed him into an evil human-dragon who loves the flesh and blood of humans and then transforms into the person he eats.

Serendipity - Be Flexible

Have you noticed when life is going down a path with a goal in mind, you hit a wall? Like Einstein in this chapter of Einstein's Compass, life on our planet has changed beyond what we could imagine. You can throw your 2020 Yearly Calendar in the trash. In this chapter of Einstein's Compass, his studies complete, Albert Einstein's professors refused to help him secure a teaching job. He thought his life was over until a job at the Patent Office opened. The Patent Office turned out to be the perfect job for Albert. The laboratory gave him the opportunity to experiment with his theories. A lesson from Einstein might be how can we be flexible, learn to adapt and change? It takes courage to face the unknown. Please have compassion for yourself and forgive whatever you think is in your way. Check out Einstein's Compass on the "Dr. Who" in UK website. Due to the virus they dropped their advertising prices. I received a low cost one-year contact. https://www.drwho-online.co.uk/

Do You Have the Courage of Einstein?

Albert Einstein was never always famous. Born a Jew, he attended a Catholic school where he faced bullies daily chanting words of antisemitism. At age 16 his parents moved to Italy without him. Left alone, he had no one to help him face the brutal torture of his teachers and peers. When he graduated from college, his professors refused to give him referrals to find a job. What did Albert have that kept him going? A compass his father gave him when he was a boy. The compass was more than a direction finder. It became a dream, his moral code to stay on course to discover what is time, what is light. Albert had courage, the heart to continue his journey, no matter who stood in his way or what tried to stop him. In this time of darkness, find your spiritual compass. Maybe you too can change the world.

Is the Virus Just a Dream?

What is the new normal? My husband, John, and his friends had lunch yesterday in over two months. John was getting depressed sitting at home. Over the years they have supported each other in sickness and in health. This pandemic threw them a hard curve ball. His friend Bob lives alone. Depressed Bob retreats into the darkness, doom and gloom of who is sick, and we are all going to die. Before the virus, the three musketeers played golf, had lunch, and reminisce their lives when they were young. Now in fear not to infect one another, they wear masks when they meet. Bob has gained weight in the past months. He is not playing golf anymore; he says his chest hurts when he swings. I listen to audiobooks when I take my daily walk. I am cooking like it’s the 1950s’. Instead of meeting the first week in April, my women’s golf group will begin playing together next week. I work the New York Times Crossword puzzles, play my piano. John and I planned a trip to Hawaii in late June, but the hotel canceled our reservation and is closed until July. It is quiet in our neighborhood but not peaceful. Will we be able to connect, visit, travel and hug again? I hope so.

News Pitches Old and New

The stay-at-home instruction turned my attention to ways to learn. I signed up with Burke Allen of Allen Media Strategies for a four-week class meeting Monday and Wednesday nights. Using the Coronavirus as the news hook, Burke focused on how to find and build relationships with news professionals. Our first class “How to write a News Pitch”. On the webinar Burke used a slideshow as he taught. The pitch, different from a press release, is on a specific news angle around your book. I used my “Do You Have a Dream Workbook 5 Keys to Realize Your Dream”. When we had written our pitch, Burke did a five-minute video interview. I learned my pitch needed to be different and shorter. Our last assignment was to write three pitches, find three reporters and write why we chose the reporter and pitch. I sent my pitches to BlogTalkRadio Host Jeanie Brosius of B-Now Women Radio. My interview on June 4th, “4 Ways to Get Your Life Back”. Burke’s class is for serious authorpreneurs who want to bring their brand to the next level. With kindness, Burke paid special attention to each student. We received copies of the slides and notes. Burke also made helpful notes on our pitches.

I Can't Stop Reading

Since the pandemic pressed us into our homes, my reading increased. I love audiobooks with genres in historical fiction, science fiction and sci-fi fantasy. In my search for an audiobook I tune in to the sample for tone of voice, how the narrator grabs my imagination and how the writer spins the tale. In my library are, “How to Stop Time” and “The Humans” by Matt Haig; The Enigma Series by Breakfield and Burkey; Michael Sullivan’s “Legend Series”; Aiden James “Judas Coin” series; “The Book of Longings” by Sue Monk Kidd; “The Night Circus” by Erin Morgenstern; Marie Benedict’s “Lady Clementine” and “The Other Einstein”. One of favorites is “Good Omens” by Neil Gaiman. Anything written by Ray Bradbury. When the sunlight is beaming, I seize my track shoes and IPhone and cruise around the block. If it rains, there is our TEETER machine in the living room where I sit and pump my arms and legs for an hour. If I sit for too long to read I lose interest in the plot. Exercise helps me focus and absorb the story. While walking I escape and travel into another world. Refreshed I return home, take off my headset and ready to make dinner. #audiobooks #historicalfiction #fantasy #exercise

Young Albert Einstein faced obstacles?

Did you know? Young Albert Einstein faced enormous obstacles? As a boy, Albert’s father gave him a compass. The directional device gave him his faithful path for life.

HALL WAYS BOOK REVIEW: Einstein's Compass

Einstein’s Compass is a HIGHLY imaginative mix of historical fact, biblical and mythological references, and spiritual mysticism that will keep readers’ brains whirling and fully engaged. The story provides a good window into the likely frustration that a young, brilliant Einstein had with classmates and adults who didn’t understand and/or felt intimidated by his intelligence. Also, it is interesting to view young Einstein in context of his being a Jew when already the anti-Semitism is building up and he and others are being singled-out and persecuted.I recommend the book for readers who can go in with open minds and seek new experiences and viewpoints likely different from anything they’ve read before. Einstein’s Compass would be an excellent book for reading clubs because it begs to be discussed.Narrator Curt Bonnem does an outstanding job performing the voices of a huge cast of characters, both male and female (and genderless), in a variety of accents, of those both good and evil

Einstein Meets Galileo The Father of Physics

On a clear sunny spring day, me and forty visitors from around the world got off the cruise bus in Pisa, Italy. Within a ten-minute stroll we are inside the rock gate of the Square of Miracles, a five-story reinforced twelve century feudal citadel. Transported back in time, I am in awe of the cerulean sky and the Piazza die Miracoli. The Baptistery in the foreground, the Duomo in the center, and the wedding cake leaning tower in the background on the right. Consecrated to Mary of the Assumption, the Romanesque Chesia Cathedral rests next to the slimming bell tower and tempts me to go in. The smell of Frankincense greets my nose when I stroll through the enormous bronze doors. Have I entered a Michelangelo painting? I glance up to discover the Medici gilded ceiling and painted dome. The interior of the cathedral is finished with black-and-white marble. Pointing to the hanging incense burner, our tour guide explains Galileo came upon his conclusion of time by observing the sway of the lamp and holding the beat of his pulse in his wrist. He established his gravity experiment on the top of the leaning bell tower next door. It is here I envision the chapter where in a dream Einstein meets his hero Galileo. #timetravel

Coronavirus Karma From Atlantis?

Did you know the scientists of Atlantis performed DNA experiments? They discovered how to combine the genetics of animals with humans. It was a world-wide business for the military Aryan scientists to create Centaurs, Satyrs and Minotaur’s. By blending genetics, the Atlanteans thought they could play god. Today scientists across our world are playing god by creating invisible death through biological weapons. What occurred in Atlantis is happening today. Viruses that were only found in humans and viruses only found in certain animals coexisted in the bodies of these combined beings. This artificial movement of combining what would never happen was a huge aberration from natural law and opened a doorway for viruses to move from one species into another. We have had lethal viruses appear through the crossover of animal viruses mutating into a form that humans can carry. SARS, MERS and EBOLA all originated in bats. Swine flu originated in pigs. We are as technological as the Atlanteans were when they destroyed their world. There is a spiritual purpose for the Coronavirus. The Atlanteans created Noah’s flood to clear the planet of men’s abominations. Let us learn to balance science with humanity. Let us choose with wisdom, compassion and love, not power and greed.

Creative Mind Experiments Changed The World

Albert Einstein was never always famous. When he was a child, his father presented him a compass. The directional device inspired the growing analyst to dream of what is time, what is light? His life was not easy. When he was a juvenile, he struggled when his parents moved to Italy and left him with his relatives. Alone and Jewish in a Catholic school he was terrorized by youths who called him names. He refused to memorize material. His tutors in grammar school punished him for not following the rules. Distraught he sought for an educator who would aid him to uncover the answers to his quest. When we failed his entrance exams at the Polyteknic, he found Professor Winteler who taught Albert mind experiments. Through a system of head, heart and hand he learned how to use his visionary mind. The disappointment of not getting into the Polyteknic turned into a breakthrough for Albert. If you find yourself stuck in your life or broken hearted during this global crisis, I urge you to find a new direction. Albert did and transformed the world.

Rescuing My Husband - Intestinal Virus

Coronavirus? I have been rescuing my husband from an intestinal virus. Last Friday night he began shaking. Saturday morning, I found him, and his bed covered in diarrhea. In the night to clean it up, he had gone to the bathroom and pulled a bath sheet. The towel ruined, his bed clothes sacked, I went about washing the sheets, blankets and quilt. John sat bewildered in the living room drinking Ginger ale. When I got his bed back together, the feverish man climbed into bed. His body could not stop producing poop. So I went to the store and bought Men’s Depends. By Sunday he was delirious with fever. We visited Grace Clinic, where the nurse practitioner gave him Lominol for his stomach. That night again, he, the bathroom and his bed covered in mess. More laundry, more clothes ruined. Monday morning 8 am, John could not get out of bed I dialed 911. At the Heart Hospital, the nurse gave him two bags of fluid. I took from the hospital bed pads to cover the bed. The pads almost worked, still had to do laundry three more days. Wednesday, we saw his doctor who gave him more pills. Today, no bed mess, he is eating and feeling better. Exhausted I need a vacation on a beach somewhere.

Do Not Worry - Live Your Life

George Washington once said, “Worry is the interest paid by those who borrow trouble.” The Coronavirus narratives in our world shows how the media deals with us with their doomsday scenarios. Excitement has halted flying while stock markets plunge. Is the virus scare real? We are a population of three hundred and fifty million individuals. According to the CDC 1,215 have been diagnosed in the United States, in addition to 36 deaths. The U.S. government and public health partners are implementing aggressive measures to slow and contain transmission of COVID-19 in the United States. Politics in the USA is playing out as the far-left Democrats and media who hate Donald Trump push the tension as hard as they can. Prosecution of our president failed as did all their new tactics. The virus is a perfect storm to stop our president and our way of life. Those most affected by the virus are the elderly, not children, or people who are healthy. Do not borrow trouble from the media. Turn off the television. Stop reading scary posts on social channels. Live your life.

Coronovirus Fiction or Fact?

In 1981 author Dean Koontz composed, “The Eyes of Darkness”. The novel depicts a virus called "Wuhan-400," referred to after the Chinese city known as the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak. Are we seeing fiction become a reality? When the coronavirus spread in the winter of 2019, my husband Dr. John Blair a military sociologist, served on a biological warfare panel in Washington, DC. after 9/11. Today he wonders if the Chinese are experimenting with the coronavirus. What if a virus like the one we have now is weaponized with anthrax? Last week the FBI arrested Charles Lieber, the chair of Harvard University's Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology. Dr. Lieber made "fictitious and fraudulent statements" to the U.S. Defense Department about his ties to a Chinese government program to recruit foreign scientists and researchers. “No country poses a greater, more severe or long-term threat to our national security and economic prosperity than China,” said Joseph Bonavolonta, special agent in charge of the F.B.I.’s Boston field office. “China’s communist government’s goal, is to replace the U.S. as the world superpower, and they are breaking the law to get there.” Evil lurks in our midst. Will the Chinese succeed? Lets hope not.

Serendipity Directs My Writing Process

In my writing process, I sit at my computer and compose whatever appears in my mind. When I run out of words, I get up and do chores, wash dishes or walk.  In meditation, I send loving thoughts and bless the story. Usually a character or a theme of the narrative will appear to me in pictures. When writing “Einstein’s Compass a YA Time Traveler Adventure”, I was working an episode in the mountains outside of Munich, Germany. Albert and his companion Johann visit a monastery. Using Albert’s supernatural compass, the boys take part in the annual treasure hunt of Mary Magdalene’s Feast Day. Unexpectedly, in my mind, Mary Magdalene appears to me. She wishes to be in the story. The heavenly saint advises me to compose the chapter. After I write the episode I learned in my research, she remained the last thirty years in a cavern in the south of France. My husband and I were traveling on a Mediterranean cruise in a few weeks and would be near her last resting place. I arranged for a guide to take me to the Grotto where Dominican Monks have a sanctuary dedicated to Mary Magdalene. In the sanctuary, I pray to her and seek a blessing. To my right, a golden light appears I hear her voice, “Welcome Sister”.

Evil Character Based On Real Life

Do you known a person who was evil? I have. Someone whose charming, seductive personality drew you in. Made you feel important and special just so they could exploit you?  The adversary in Einstein's Compass, Raka, the fallen angel of light in Einstein's Compass, is a narcissist. He possesses an ambitious sense of importance, who lacks empathy, is pretentious, and envious of others. He turned into a doppelganger because like some people in life; they turn into a double-walker. He portrays himself to care. Later, you learn bears a hole in his soul, heartless. Raka spends his time manipulating other people to do his dirty work. Calculating Countess Victoria Von Baden and Wilhelm Von Weisel partner with Raka in his pursuit of Albert's compass. The dark twin was resentful of his brother of light, Arka. Twins, one dark and one light, form the origin story of "Einstein's Compass, a YA Time Traveler Adventure". Arka the Atlantean high priest of light and healing represents integrity, wisdom and love. Young Albert Einstein does not realize the compass his father gave him is from Atlantis and is supernatural. Wielding his other worldly device, Albert's pursuit to know what is time and what is light hangs in the balance of dark vs light.

What It Takes To Be A Successful Author

During my forty-year career in business, I wrote marketing materials. Making stuff up came naturally. To write a novel required new skills. Fiction has rules to follow. To write the story, I had to learn how to write it. My goal, create a novel where history met science fiction and transport people to learn and entertained. The journey for me began with a vision of a young Albert Einstein and a compass his father gave him that set him on his quest to know what is time, what is light. Four years later I had a manuscript. While writing my masterpiece I had to wear a second hat, marketing. Bublish became my marketing arm. One day I would write my novel, the next setting up websites, social media pages, blogs, all to create a brand, an identity. I invested in a designed cover, copy editing, book layout and market placement advice. On January 1, 2019 I hired professional bloggers and book reviewers for the  "Einstein's Compass a YA Time Traveler Adventure" book launch. To bring visibility to my novel, I entered book contests throughout the year and won five book awards. I have reached my goal to write a successful novel. In 2020 my new goal for my novel is to make money through a wide distribution.

We Are All Connected

Writing books began in the year 2001 when after being laid off after 9/11 I found an inner voice that wanted to connect with the world. During, the last nineteen years I have expressed the creativity of my mind through the portal of technology. Research on the internet gave me more information than I could use. Writing became less lonely when I reached out on social media to share my work. It surprised me to find a community of readers and writers across the world.  When I shared my work, friendships with writers like Carolyn Howard-Johnson and Jacqui Murray in California, Rox Burkey and Johann Wagner in Dallas, give me honest feedback, support and encouragement. I discovered writer cousins, Margaret Tottle-Smith in England, Michelle Doucett in Canada, and Carol Hunter in Detroit. Marketing my work on social media I found professional friends like Kathy Meis and her team at Bublish. Podcast hosts Jeanie Brocious and Rob Brown broadcast to the world my good news. Movie critic Betty Jo Tucker wrote a poem of my novel, "Einstein' Compass" and recommends it as a movie. Creating and connecting with the world through writing has given me confidence in myself. Little did I know when I began my writing journey the family, fans and friendships I would find along my way.

Winter Ba Humbug

Wintry weather has never been my friend. Memories of snowy blizzards in Upstate New York as an adolescent remind me of intense fever and tonsillitis. Going to sunny, tropical South Florida when I was nine restored my strength. Since I moved to Texas in 1985 winter weather is like a roller coaster. Dawn occurs with conditions in the twenties. By noon, it's fifty-nine degrees. Christmas 2016 we had a snowstorm that left two feet of sleet in one day. For two weeks businesses and schools closed. I recall how peaceful our neighborhood sounded. The sniff of firewood burning in fireplaces wafted the crisp air. One week into being home bound my husband had a doctor's appointment. So, I pulled on fleece pants, sweatshirt, headgear and mitts to shovel our one-hundred foot by thirty foot entrance. Five hours later sticky and exhausted alerted me of why I despise snow. Yesterday was a delightful break for January. A frosty, misty twenty degrees at six am heated to sunny blue skies and fifty degrees by noon. I played golf with five of my friends. We had the rarest eighteen holes in weeks. Someday I would wish to retire to beaches and a warmer climate. I miss getting into a bathing suit in January.

2020 Begins With My Hair on Fire

Yesterday I read on a coffee mug "Being a writer is easy it's like riding a bike except the bike's on fire you're on fire everything is on fire." In the last five years I have written and narrated "Do You Have a Dream Workbook, Five Keys to Realize Your Dream" and, "Einstein's Compass a YA Time Traveler Adventure." Each project inspired me with wild abandon. My Dream book opened my heart to learn my soul's purpose to create with words. Young Albert Einstein who held onto his dream to realize what is time, what is light caused me to discover what is imagination and determination. By November 2019 Einstein's Compass won five book awards and an opportunity through Allen Media Strategies to relaunch my novel. In the last few days I burn with a passion to create a unique project that took seed last summer. The premise of my new historical fiction story is, what if Jesus Christ did not die on the cross? The narrative will be the factual family business of, Jesus Christ and how Constantine established the Christ legend. Here I go, on my flaming bike, no brakes, my hair on fire to explore the history, characters and an adventure I anticipate to enrich each reader. Stay tuned.

The Golf Matriarchs of Lubbock, Texas

I moved from Dallas, Texas to Lubbock in West Texas ten years ago to marry my husband and looked forward to making new friends. Lubbock is in the pan-handle of West Texas and is an island in the middle of cotton, corn, cattle and cowboys. I soon discovered the locals were friendly but had their traditions and were not embracing the non-islander. That is until Carol Williamson, a cotton king matriarch invited me to join a senior ladies golf group. Turns out at sixty-nine I am one of the youngest in the group. Our team captain, Wanda is in her mid-nineties. Each Tuesday morning we gather at Shadow Hills Country Club to play golf. We chip in one-dollar that goes to our parties.These powerful West Texas women who head up their families have open, golden hearts. Golf is the game we play, however it is the tight-knit friendships that bind us. While riding in a golf cart each listens to whose husband or family member is sick or in need of care. Wanda's husband Robbie died last week. The golf women stood with Wanda as she said goodbye to her best friend. I am grateful to Carol, Wanda, and all the ladies who opened their arms to me. Our Christmas party was a real hoot.

OH! HO! NO! Christmas 1985

Christmas 1985 while living in Miami, Florida a friend I will call George persuaded me to sail on his forty-five foot racing sloop to the Bahamas during the week of Christmas. Two new male companions, Chris and Roger would join the party. I have been a crew member on large vessels and felt ready for the ocean voyage. Each team member would rotate a two-hour shift on the helm making certain we held a compass heading. We left Dinner Key Harbor mid-morning two days before Christmas. Little did we realize as our ship struck open water a winter storm blew in from the north. Instantly we were cruising waves the size of ten-story buildings. Hours later rain pelting, our ship pitching like a rollercoaster freezing and soaked it was my shift to occupy the helm. I seized on to the steering wheel like I was a race car driver on a course for my life. Ten hours from when we took off our ragtag crew landed a little off course at Cat Cay island. Famished we dragged our exhausted bodies into a nearby island restaurant where we experienced the finest dinner of our lives. Next day we cruised to Grand Bahama where I seized a seaplane back to Miami. I was home in forty-five minutes.

The Village of Einstein's Compass

It has taken a village of supporters to create Einstein's Compass. I am grateful for my husband Dr. John Blair who with his professorial wisdom assisted me with my characters and story development. He also provided financial support for my travels to book events. I thank my writing companion Laren Bright who skillfully organized the story and enhanced my writing. Kathy Meis and Bublish edited the story and through book bubbles reached more than two hundred thousand people two years before Einstein's Compass launched in January of 2019. The Bublish team continue to send the bubbles each week and are in charge of my Amazon ads. Grateful for book fans Jacqui Murray, Doug Simpson, Betty Jo Tucker, Carolyn Howard-Johnson, Jeanie Brosious, Cherie McCarter, Hall Ways, Facebook and Twitter fans. Burke Allen and his team who will soon relaunch Einstein's Compass. A special thank you to the Mystical Travelers who inspired my story of Albert #Einstein to discover his spiritual heart and change the world.

Was Albert Einstein a Mystic?

The Thanksgiving I turned twelve years old my family gathered around the dinner table to eat when my grandfather turned to me and requested I say a prayer. Blessing our family was my initial outward experience of receiving the transcendence of God's love some people might call mystical.  Today the term “mystic” often describes the occult, magic, astrology and tarot readings. I wish to enlighten people to recognize that the mystical is not dark magic. Merriam Webster defines mystical as involving or having an individual's direct subjective communion with God or ultimate reality, the mystical experience of the Inner Light. In 1973, I discovered a phenomenon called the Mystical Traveler Consciousness. The Mystical Travelers Jesus, Moses, Ezekiel and Akhenaten in Einstein's Compass are real to me. Through reflection and prayer they guided me in writing this novel.  Through his thought experiments I suspect the wisdom of the inner light joined Albert Einstein to his miracle theories. The compass in the story is better than a direction finder, it is a metaphor for Albert realizing his spiritual heart. He transformed the world by reaching crossed the mind into the transcendent reality of the mystical. Buy #Einstein's Compass through the #Bublish portal.

Hold On Tight To Your Dreams

The song "Hold On Tight To Your Dreams" by ELO has been playing on a loop in my head for the last few days. My first dream for Einstein's Compass was to publish a hero's journey that captured your heart. My second goal was to raise the awareness of my novel. This week Einstein's Compass won “ Young Adult Fiction of the 2019 Best Book Awards. This award is one of four book awards in 2019. The Historial Novel Society wrote a rave review. Amazon and Goodreads readers love the story. Now, my dream is Einstein's Compass being made into a motion picture shown worldwide. A movie would increase book sales and spread the message of how a German boy who received a compass from his father was inspired to follow his #dreams of what is time and light, and changed the world. #Buy now through the #Bublish portal.

The Dark Angel Struggles with the Light

Will Raka's plot for revenge against his twin brother Arka win him the compass, the prize he covets? The struggle between darkness and light is a theme in Einstein's Compass. How does a person decide what path to take in their daily lives? Why? Is it the feeling of power that drives Raka to take the dark path? Will Raka turn from the darkness and learn how to turn to the light in our story? These are themes each person on our planet faces every day. I have learned that the light holds the darkness. As we live our lives on planet earth our lessons come from being in the darkness and learning how to turn into the light. Einstein's Compass is a hero's journey and struggle of the #darkness versus the light. Is Raka afraid of the #light? Or, is he lazy? Do you know of someone who is evil?

Who made the rule change is scary?

Fear is challenging each person to awaken to their loving inside. Some of us are being tested with lost jobs or dying family members, maybe your home has been destroyed in a natural disaster, or perhaps, like me, you have had toxic family issues and serious illness. These are all part of the greater change that God is delivering to each person. It is a time of reassessment and inner discovery. Change can be scary, but it does not have to be. God is calling us to be more accountable in our relationships with each other and ourselves. We have opportunities and choices to make. Will we respond to our opportunities with love or with fear? #Fear is challenging each person to awaken to their loving inside. Let go and say, “Yes” to life, not “No.”#Halloween Allison, Grace.

Albert Experiences the Technology of Atlantis

Albert Einstein lived during the horse and buggy days. I wondered, how did he discover his theories of light with the limited technology of his time? Perhaps he was from Atlantis when technology was at its zenith? I used Doug Simpson's book "We Lived In Atlantis" based on Edgar Cayce's visions for my research into the high spiritual and technological civilization of Atlantis 10,000 B.C. Maybe young Albert Einstein was trying to remember his role as a priest-scientist when he lived in Atlantis? In my novel Einstein's Compass the Mystical Travelers transport Albert back in time to remember what is time and light? Einstein's Compass is a heroes journey of how a young boy with a dream changes the world by remembering ancient theories of technology.

Albert's Homecoming

In his senior year of high school, Albert's family moved to Italy to pursue a business opportunity, without him. He was to finish school in Munich and live with his mother's sister and her husband. Albert felt abandoned when his mother Pauline left him to battle with teachers who thrust their demands for him to memorize every text.Depressed and alone one day his boyhood friend Max who was a doctor encouraged Albert to further his education in Switzerland. Max wrote a letter to the Direktor of the school stating Albert was leaving the Gymnasium due to mental and physical exhaustion. Albert longed for his family and did not know how his parents were going to react when he showed up at their front door. The homecoming is a turning point and a promise of a better future. Maybe in Switzerland Albert would find the teacher who could assist him with his dream to know what is time and light? Buy Einstein's Compass through the Bublish portal now.

Courage and Creativity When Change Happens

My journey of courage and creativity began In 1989 when doctors pronounced me with cervical cancer. The day I learned the diagnosis, I called in the Light and imagined I felt the hem of Jesus’s shroud. Faith in the Holy Spirit in God and Jesus Christ showed me strength. The night before my hysterectomy I relaxed in my bed imagining the surgeons and myself in loving. Deep in reflection and prayer, the Holy Spirit raised me out of my body into a ball of perfect love and light. The biopsies after surgery showed there was no disease. The transformation in my body from a life-threatening illness to wellness with a purpose was a testimony to my years of walking the sacred path.

A Historical Hero's Journey of Good vs Evil

Einstein's Compass is a historical hero's journey of soul searching, enlightenment, blending science and nature with struggles between good and evil. Albert Einstein was fascinated with time and space from an early age, but what inspired him? Receiving a magical compass from his father, Albert sets off on a journey to learn more than math and science offered to understand even time and space. Unfortunately, an ancient evil from the days of Atlantis also seeks his compass, and will stop at nothing to have it. Can the Agents of Light protect Albert from the shape-shifting dragon and help him achieve his destiny, or will he fall prey to the dangers of his day and lose the powerful device before he completes his mission? The combination of science with the supernatural is a winner, and the good vs. evil fight is interesting, making this a good book for YA and science fiction readers of all ages.

My Heroine In the World of Publishing

In 2004, when I launched my indie author career there was one company you could turn to for self-publishing. Today with more than 40 million books Amazon has changed the world of publishing for traditional and indie publishing. Sometimes as indie author I feel like a grain of sand in the Sahara Desert of publishing. The harsh blowing wind of Amazon's book pirates, book review bullies and price fixing, make it hard for me to publish more books. However, when I feel downcast I remember there is Bublish and Kathy Meis. Kathy brings fresh air to the publishing world. She is a visionary embracing new and affordable ideas like book bubbles for readers to learn about new authors and their work. Her passion for the publishing and love for book people keep me going. She is warm, friendly and always ready to reach out and assist as an editor, meta data expert and marketing coach. I go forward each day knowing she is my champion and will do her best to get my work known. Thank you Kathy for all you do.

What If? Albert Einstein was from Atlantis?

I have always thought of Einstein as a fascinating person. He lived during the horse and buggy days where the light bulb was the most advanced technology. So how did he come up with his miracle theory given the circumstances of his life? So I asked myself the what-if question. What will happen if? Albert was a modern mystic in his time. What will happen if? Einstein was a star child from Atlantis? What will happen if? Albert was trying to remember what he did as a priest-scientist during his lifetime in Atlantis. What kind of place was Atlantis? Who lived there? What were the people like in Atlantis? Maybe in Atlantis he had an evil twin brother. Maybe there was an advanced civilization in Atlantis. My book of fiction follows Albert Einstein's biographical history from age six to twenty-six and adds a new level of mystical spirituality that he had help from a supernatural compass and mystical beings who assisted him in his heroes’ journey and his miracle theory. Einstein believed that we have to go beyond what we can see and measure in the physical world. My book, “Einstein’s Compass” goes beyond what we know and adds a possible fictional explanation for how he came up with his miracle theory and changed the world.

Evil Lurks on a Dark Blustry Night

In keeping with Hurricane Dorian I am showing how weather plays a part in Einstein's Compass. In this chapter I envisioned a Stephen King setting. A blustery, wintry stormy night. The nasty weather with a new moon sets the mood for Albert's nemesis Werner Von Weisel when he finds his new evil master Raka. Slowly they descend a spiral stairwell that leads down into a dungeon-like grotto where a gargoyle greets them over the entrance into purgatory. I base the fascinating Countess Victoria Von Baden who greets Raka on an actual evil woman I worked with. At the time I worked for her little did she realize what I would do to stop her. Also, be mindful when you are around an author. You never know what they will do to you in their next project. You can purchase Einstein's Compass through the Bublish portal. Available in #EBook, #paperback and #audiobook. Follow me on #Bublish to receive next weeks book bubble.

A Spring/Summer Accident

My husband's physician suggested he purchase a TEETER exercise machine. So waiving the $100 to have it assembled he put it together. The elliptical machine weighs over two-hundred pounds. John has a stimulator in his back for body pain because of scoliosis, crushed discs, stenosis, and arthritis. Shoving the massive hardware for two days did not end well. Within two weeks he protested that his right hip hurt. An x-ray revealed a fractured hip. So, in mid-May he went to the hospital for hip replacement surgery. For the next month his twenty-two inch wound bled a lot. I was changing his bandages every few hours, washing his bed clothes, and sheets too. At home, he had physical therapy and home healthcare. Now he is walking and going for further physical therapy. When people mention exercise is good for you, I would qualify that with if the machine comes assembled. In this chapter of Einstein's Compass there is a twist in the story. Purchase the novel through Bublish to find out what happened to Johann, Albert and their friends.

What is peace?

Let there be peace. And, let peace begin with me. During any normal day, we think, say, and do many things. The words we say and their intent have the greatest influence on how we direct our lives. In our fast-paced society, we ignore or forget how powerful words can be. Words evoke emotions, trigger memories, and generate visceral reactions. Learning how to direct the mind and emotions is like the ability to turn darkness into light. People who live their lives allowing their mind and emotions to run them are like ships on the ocean without a mast or a rudder. Without boundaries fear fuels addictions to food, drugs and alcohol. Our personality requires discipline for self-control of our physical desires for food, sex, love and other worldly objects. Connecting with God through prayer and introspection builds confidence, detachment, inner strength, and compassion. Don't resist your negative thoughts and feelings; instead, embrace them, and ask God to show you what the lesson might be. Forgive yourself for judging yourself. Be kind to yourself, courteous and have good manners. Treat others the same way you want them to treat you. God does more than hear words. He reads our hearts. Peace, be still.

Back to School Memories

School was tough for me because my family moved a lot. My father could not keep a job. Like Einstein I had a hard time with memorizing material to pass a test. My parents discouraged higher learning. Young daughters during the 50s and 60s became homemakers. I was bright and discouraged. So, I read a lot of books. I read autobiographies to find out how people became successful. What I learned from prominent people was they weren't always famous. Each individual struggled and mastered success in their own way. So, I started to apply my visionary mind and coach myself. I realized I can organize material and apply it. I grew into an autodidact. In this chapter of Einstein's Compass we find Professor Winteler instructing Albert and his classmates to use their inner creativity. Professor Winteler's heart, head and hand system of schooling was revolutionary and became well known throughout Europe.

Change do you like it?

Change do you like it? I didn't want to give up my ocean front condo for parts unknown. But, like the television series "Miami Vice" Miami, Florida had turned into a crime-ridden city. With regular break-ins into the high-end furniture showroom my career as a manager in the Design District ended. So on a sunlit dawn thirty-three years ago this month I started my blue Toyota Celica tethered with a red trailer from the tropical beaches in Miami, Florida and traveled west to dry Dallas, Texas. Within, a week in Dallas I started a position in sales. Over the next twenty-six years in Dallas, I established a niche in real estate, marketing and business development. In 2000, I won the Dallas Business Journal Award for Retail in Frisco, Texas The Centre at Preston Ridge. It took courage to pickup and drive across country for a fresh opportunity. However, little did I know my new direction and creative work would benefit me years later in composing an award-winning novel Einstein's Compass.  In this episode of Einstein's Compass Albert shifts his life path for a fresh undertaking. Einstein's Compass a YA Time Traveler Adventure is available in all on-line bookstores in paperback, eBook and audio book.

Music Inspires Creativity

Music is important to me. When I was growing up my mother sang like an angel. When I was six years old she had taught me ballroom dancing. As a teenager my dance teacher created Thank Heaven For Little Girls dance troupe. We did the Can Can in big hats and skirts for local country clubs and events. I found when writing Einstein's Compass the sweet sound of music stimulated my creativity. My love and empathy opened where I received the story. On my birthday last week I purchased a piano.I am taking lessons. I want to learn to sing and play cabaret music. In this chapter of Einstein's Compass Albert's creativity opens as he solves his life lesson with music. Amazon for the #Kindle #paperback or #Audiobook

Serendipity

When I began writing Einstein's Compass in 2014, I felt alone. I wondered who would want to read my novel? Who knew back then 200K people would have read my book bubbles on Bublish. I would have sold over 250 books and won four book awards. A week ago I wanted to take a break from writing and explore a new hobby, learn how to play the piano. I made an appointment to begin piano lessons at The Music Studio in Lubbock. When I arrived I noticed a copy of my novel, "Einstein's Compass YA Time Traveler Adventure" on the table. Becki Laurent owner of The Music Studio is a good friend of book blogger and reviewer Cherei J McCarter. Becki read Cherie's review of EC on Facebook and purchased the book for her daughter Millie. Like Einstein I feel invisible hands are at work supporting me and my mission. You never know what will happen once you create a new dream.

Commitment to Einstein's Compass Novel

The seven-year odyssey of my novel, Einstein's Compass YA Time Traveler Adventure emerged as a what if "Einstein had a magical compass that inspired his theories of relativity" in 2012.Vision to write the book with Laren Bright in 2014. Social media marketing with Bublish in 2016 has brought 200K readers to read the Bublish book snippets.  Book launch was January 2019. I had never written a novel before so I took classes, joined with authors' groups, traveled to novelists' seminars, sought advertising on social media and participated in book events. Hired writing coaches, editors and designers. For research on the novel I read extensive articles on Einstein, Atlantis, Mystical Travelers, and the Shamir Stone.  I have invested close to $12,000 not including the travel to bring this adventure to the public. With no literary agent my sales have been hard won. I show up every day to deliver my narrative to the world. No holidays or time off. Like Einstein I am committed to share my dream of what one person can accomplish to shape the world. With 250 books sold and four book awards my next target is to have EC produced into a motion picture. Do you have a literary agent I can talk to?

Risks of an Independent Thinker

Do you take risks with your creativity? Or, play it safe and go along with the crowd? Einstein was a young man who wanted to learn, however, he found what was being taught he already knew. Being the smartest person in the room alienated him from his peers and teachers. His passion to learn forced him to dream beyond what was known. I am not as smart at Einstein, however, writing a novel about him elevated my creativity. I am autodidact someone who is self taught. I barely finished high school and when faced with college I could not find a box I fit in. I have learned how to use my curiosity and creativity to create a life of fun and discovery. I have found having a dream to create something new is risky and exciting. You have to trust your instincts. I love the rush of creating something no one has done before, Independent thinking means to follow your dreams. Go inside your heart and learn to fly. Maybe you will change the world with your new idea.

Do you have a dream?

I chose to write Einstein's Compass because a little six year old boy held a brass compass in his hand and wondered why the needle always pointed north. Little Albert Einstein had a dream to understand what was time and light? He held fast no matter who or what tried to stop him. I took twenty years of Einstein's life age 6 when he received the compass from his father until age 26 when he discovered his theory of relativity. His biography "Einstein" by Walter Isaacson was the basis for my story. I also wanted to demonstrate his struggles with his teachers, parents and peers as he was growing up. We all have the ability to dream. Life often throws obstacles in the way to test us on our journey of discovery. Albert's passion and determination to know what is light and time have changed the world. What dream do you have that can make a difference in the world?

Beware of the dragon in your midst

Have you encountered people who were smart, charismatic and engaging. They look into your soul with their penetrating eyes, smile and get you to believe they care about you, maybe love you? Then when they have you where they want, begin to manipulate and manage your life pretending you like this new life. Beware of the maniacal people who seem bigger than life. You will wonder how you got where you are then find your trapped. Raka's cunning and disguise is based on various people I have known in my life. Many of the characters in Einstein's Compass are based on real people. Be mindful of who you makes friends with. You never know when they will come stalking after you. #Kindle $0.99 on sale available in #audiobook listen to Albert in his German accent and all the characters in their voices.

Do you dream of becoming an author?

I began my journey as an author just after 9/11. Eighteen years and four books later the book industry is saturated with 40 million books on Amazon and 170 new books entering the market each month. Inflation of books means authors make less money. At the latest BookExpo in New York I discovered the film industry is in chaos hungry for the next big story. I made a fifteen second pitch so we will see if I get a phone call. Publishers are awash in content trying to decide which books and authors will generate revenue. To have staying power you have to write a series. And know where your market is. With Einstein's Compass I am focusing on the YA library market. It is Lexile rated 860L which librarians love. Once you open the door and begin to climb the stairs to self-publishing just know being an author is a job. I show up everyday with new marketing ideas for social media. My next book is in research stages. Be careful of what you dream. Being an author might sound glamorous however it is a long, expensive and competitive journey. Be sure and make author friends along the way. Authors are a tribe bound together in our blood, sweat and tears of good and bad reviews.

Einstein's Compass setting like a movie

The setting in Einstein's Compass for each chapter came before writing one word of the story. I saw each chapter like a movie. I pictured nineteenth century Germany and its horse and buggy culture, women in long skirts, men in bowler hats addressing one another as "Herr". Contrast the destruction of Jerusalem , in 70 AD. I layered the time period of Jerusalem and Romans with the smells of burning and butchering an entire city of Jews. Then the historical Temple of Solomon and the Ark of the Covenant to make sure every detail was true including the Temple's architect Prophet Ezekiel. The characters came next with descriptions of the golden ship and rescue of the Ark from Raka the demonic angel of darkness. I ended the chapter with a setup for the rest of the story with a small, round brass object with twelve gems that tumbled down into the ashes of the destroyed Temple.

Tough Decisions

In 2000 I won the prestigious Dallas Business Journal Award for Retail in Frisco, Texas The Centre at Preston Ridge a 65,000 sq. ft., shopping center. I thought I had a good job and a future until 9/11 when the towers fell in New York City. Within months of the worst tragedy in US history the economy crashed and with it my career in marketing and business development in commercial real estate. On unemployment for more than two years I prayed, "Please God show me what I am to do now?" The answer was, "Write your book." Book? What book?" Since my healing crisis with cancer in 1990 I had been working on a writing process that assisted people through change. To redirect the spiritual compass within with ease and grace. The book, "A Dream is a Wish the Heart Makes" became the first in a series of three Dream books I was to write. The inspired non-fiction lead to "Einstein's Compass a YA Time Traveler Adventure". Who made the rule that change is hard? If you are having a difficult time check out my dream books and redirect your inner compass into the dream waiting for you.

Power of Community

Do you have a life long friend? Someone who has been with you through all life's ups and downs? In this chapter I introduce Johann Thomas who through a secret experience becomes Albert's one trusted friend who as you will discover in the story becomes the one person Albert relies on. I wanted Albert who likes his own company to have a one true friend. Johann brings Albert a loving, enthusiasm and joy to his quiet withdrawn life. The opposites find what they are missing in the other. A tender friendship that blossoms as the story develops. Einstein's Compass has brought me many new writing friends like Rox Burkey, JoAnne Wagner, Margaret T Smith, Rebekah Phelps, Betty Jo Tucker, and Carolyn Howard-Johnson. We share our stories, marketing ideas our wins and losses. I thank and love my writing community of friends and how we support and care about each other.

How I Received an Invitation from Oprah

My crisis was In 2006, the real estate market across our country was hot. Home sales for me hit thirty homes in one year. Then the real estate market crashed. There I was homeless, jobless, and penniless. What was I to do? My friend Sandi offered me a bedroom in her home until I could find work. By 2006 I published my first non-fiction book, “A Dream is a Wish the Heart Makes,” Now being destitute I turned to my spiritual heart and my writing. I followed the Five Steps to Receiving your Dream and cleared the path to receive my goals. I wrote each day for the next 30 days. By, February 1, 2007, I started a position in commercial property management. By the end of March, I moved into a condo near White Rock Lake. What if I could manifest being in Oprah’s Book Club audience? When I had my cable and internet, I took part in the Oprah Book Club website. In early December 2007, I received a telephone call from one producer at Oprah who invited me to attend the Ken Follett interview with his book “Pillars of the Earth” at the end of January 2008.Do you have a dream?

Dream the impossible dream

What makes a writer and their brand? For me, I am wounded healer. I use my life experiences of physical, mental and emotional pain to convey through story of how to change what could be a roadblock in life to one of creative change. Like Einstein in his fictional story I use my my inner spiritual compass to lift above my life circumstances to give my reader a new perspective in their life experience. Like Don Quixote I dare to dream the impossible dream. To fight the unbeatable foe which in Einstein's Compass was a dragon of immeasurable dark power. To be brave to face what could be failure to follow the star of light that shines within me so my readers can seem themselves like they have never experienced before. In writing Einstein's Compass I found courage to write a story beyond myself. I will continue my quest to dream to march for a heavenly cause and share the depths of my soul and through story uplift my readers. That is my pledge to you.

How I became an author

Reading has been a part of my life since I was a child. Books transported me into another world. When I went into the business world I used my imagination to write stories and marketing concepts for companies. I won awards for some of my work. Then I watched the television show "Murder She Wrote" with actress Angela Lansbury. It was while watching the television show that I knew I wanted to be a writer who traveled. I began with memoirs, short stories then graduated into non-fiction self-help. My big dream of writing a novel came out of my years of spiritual training. I wanted to use factual events to create fiction. When I discovered Albert Einstein learned thought experiments and used them to create his theories I knew he would be the person I would use to create my imaginary story. The concepts of thought experiments Albert learned are from his biography. The process Albert used is similar to one I use. I wanted to demonstrate the process of how to tap into one's intuition and inner powers with my audience to encourage creativity in my reader's.

March Madness Dream Team

When it comes to a four-man dream team that has inspired me as a writer I would have to say they are the Mystical Travelers Moses, Ezekiel, Jesus and Akhenaten. Moses wrote the Book of Deuteronomy, the book of love that is known in the Jewish faith as the Torah. Ezekiel is known for his visions and the master builder of Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem. Jesus Christ teachings set the world onto a new path of love and grace through forgiveness. Akhenaten, tried to bring forward the Aten or one God to the Egyptians. These brave men lived their lives with a mission to uplift our planet that has inspired many. When I needed direction with Einstein's Compass the Mystical Traveler team inspired me as they did Einstein in Einstein's Compass. They brought the light when Einstein fought the darkness. The Mystical Travelers live within each person's heart. Call upon them as I have to bring you greater inspiration and perhaps you too will lift into a creativity beyond your wildest dreams.

The Hook - Einstein's Compass

The opening scene of Einstein's Compass with the antagonist Raka the fallen Angel of Light who morphs into a dragon, draws the reader in. Then the reader wonders, what does Atlantis, angels of light and the Sons of Belial have to do with Einstein? I read Ken Follett's "Pillars of the Earth". I observed how he weaved his characters with how cathedrals of the middle ages were built with English history. He made strategic plot changes to keep the reader involved. I wanted the contrast of 19th century Germany with Einstein's soul from the futuristic Atlantis and spiritual realms of the Mystical Travelers to take readers on an adventure into worlds of darkness and light they would never have imagined. The magic of the supernatural compass drives the story as each character reveals their motivation to have the compass for themselves. How did Einstein come up with his miracle theory? He lived during the horse and buggy days. The latest invention was the light bulb. Who knows maybe Einstein really was from Atlantis?

Einstein's Compass Audio Book

Einstein's Compass will soon be available as an audio book. When you read this chapter I want you to imagine you are listening to Albert in his native German talking to his family and their conversation. When I wrote Einstein's Compass I had to imagine the nineteenth century and its more formal greetings like Herr which means sir. The women in their long skirts and men in top hats. Like a movie, each chapter became a scene of the time and place with the characters interacting in the setting. The audio book has many voices like Jesus and Moses who will sound like Jewish Hebrews and Akhenaten an Egyptian Pharaoh. The narrator Curt Bonnem reads the story with lyrical inflection. Each character has its own voice. If you love historical fiction, then I recommend Einstein's Compass. Discover 19th century Germany, Atlantis, Raka the evil fallen angel of Atlantis.His brother Arka, the High-Priest and Master of the powerful crystal of Atlantis. The Sons of Belial on the Island of Aryan who covet the crystal of Atlantis.We also have an evil Countess Victoria who claims the supernatural compass belongs to her. I love audio books and I hope you will love Einstein's Compass and its wonderful characters.

Follow your dreams or do what others want you to d

Do you have a dream in your heart? Write a book, paint or become a doctor and not a housewife? Who chooses your life's direction? In my teens and twenties I listened to my parents who wanted me to marry and have children. I tried to please and did what I was told. Maybe the choice of husband was why my marriage did not last. Those early choices to please rather than going to school to become a doctor have made me listen to my heart of what I want. Like Johann in Einstein's Compass I did not want to disappoint my family. Since then I have found the courage to dream big. Writing Einstein's Compass was a dream for more than fifteen years. I chose Einstein because as a little boy he saw a compass and said, "I want to know why the needle of the compass does that." Dream big and maybe your creative idea can change the world.

Learn how to increase personal power

One of the reasons I wrote Einstein's Compass was to share with people ways in which they could learn how to be more creative in their lives. A truth I learned about Albert Einstein was when he attended Aarau High School in Switzerland his teacher instructed Albert and his fellow students on how to increase their personal power of thought and imagination though thought experiments. I believe that through his thought experiments Einstein intuitively received his theories that changed the world. I wanted this chapter in particular to give anyone reading possibilities of what can be accomplished through surrendering into a higher awareness. I followed similar practices to write Einstein's Compass.

When is a compass more than a direction finder?

I’m not sure why other people read and/or write books, but I wrote mine to save my life. I was struggling with what was going on around me and inside me. I was unhappy, and I knew there had to be more; more joy, more happiness, more fulfillment. Historical fiction, stories of the spiritual heart and spiritual exercises gave me keys where I developed my inner compass that would help me produce more of the experience of life that I was looking for but hadn’t managed to secure. Throughout my adult life, I became a serious student of the spiritual. I found that, often, psychological principles and practices were incomplete, but could be filled out by adding the missing spiritual component. My approach was always to see practical applications for what I uncovered in the mystical. It was through immersing myself in this field of study and experience that I came up with the idea for, Einstein’s Compass. #Readerlove

Turning point in your life?

Can you point to a time in your life when you made a decision that changed your life? A career change or move across the country? I moved to Texas from Miami in 1986 for a better job. The choice of Texas has been a good one for me. In Albert's life the turning point of his young life came the day his father gave him a compass. The wonder of how the needle pointed north no matter how he held the compass opened his heart to dream of time and light. So what makes you wonder? Read how Einstein used his supernatural compass to meet his life challenges as he forged into the unknown to change the world. If you read Einstein's Compass please take a few minutes to review it. #Readerlove

Have you experienced a life like dream?

Every once in a while I will be asleep and find myself in a dream where I see people and places that seem real. Often the dreams will be sharing information or give me a warning. I imagined that Albert Einstein may have had similar experiences where he met people like Sir Isaac Newton who established the laws of physics and gravity. However, I find the lessons from the dreams get lost if I don't write down what I saw immediately when I wake up. So am I awake now writing this? Or, am I asleep in a wakeful dream? In Einstein's Compass Albert also meets Galileo. Buy Einstein's Compass in Kindle, IBook, paperback now in any of the online bookstores linked to this book bubble.

Do You Need to be Loved?

I was raised by a schizophrenic mother and an abusive, alcoholic father. During my childhood with my mother in and out of mental health institutions and an absent father my siblings and I were passed around to relatives. When I saw loving families in their warm homes it felt like I was outside peering through a glass window wondering what it would be like to love and be loved. The need for love in early adulthood lead me to seek love outside of myself and as a result experienced rape as well as mental and emotional abuse. Not until I found the way of the inner light of God did I begin to know what love is. That love is inside of me. Over the years of my learning and healing I discovered how to fill the need and redirect my deep hurts into love. It took courage to know my heart.

Life Lessons

Through hard lessons of trying to be a good person and strive for success, I discovered a simple rule: “Take care of yourself first, so you can take care of others.” I am a natural caregiver. My father was an abusive alcoholic, my mother and sister died by suicide and suffered from mental illness. At ten years old and the oldest of four children, I became the responsible one in the family. By the time I was in my late twenties, I was broken and exhausted from giving to those around me. As an em-path, I see and feel into people’s needs. I have had to learn to discriminate and create boundaries to not rescue people. The fact is, our planet is a place of learning through change— always has been, always will be. Today with global connectivity, social media, and a million ways to distract themselves, people are grasping for instant answers to their life’s dilemmas. Allison, Grace.

What is a Mystic?

During the 15th Century, the Spanish Inquisition punished people who had otherworldly experiences with God. Anyone who was a healer or had intuitive knowing of God was burned at the stake. According the church, the only way a person could hear the word of God was through a priest or minister. Today the term “mystic” is associated with the occult, magic, astrology and tarot readings. I want to educate people to know that the mystical is not dark magic nor should you be ostracized. Being a mystic is a spiritual, religious, and transcendental experience. In 1973, I discovered the Mystical Traveler Consciousness is in everyone. Stepping into the living love is like having a flashlight in the darkness of the soul. With the Light of God through exercising the living spirit within, you can step into an awareness that will lift and assist you in your life’s lessons.

Spiritual Poverty

I discovered the deep need inside of me could be healed. Not until I embraced the wholeness of the whole spirit of the Holy Spirit did I find the way to fill my own need.

Intuitive Knowing

I was raised with religion as a way to live. Fear, guilt and shame were the messages to gain control of people. Going inside of yourself to find God was against the rules. I had to break the rigid rules of the Church to find my heart and soul. My true creativity began to soar once I let go and let God into my inner sanctuary.

Out of the Darkness Comes the Light

I have a soulful purpose in writing this book that offers people wisdom, perspective and practical guidance. It is my desire that the book's reflective areas will speak directly to your heart. The Biblical background is given in expository areas to provide information to assist you perhaps in perspective to your own situations. Perhaps you will see your own personal problems and needs in the context of the broader human context.
