Book Synopsis: Divining Truth, Straight Talk From the Source
This book is a written narrative of some of the questions people have asked me over the years. In answering the questions, I opened my heart and mind to the responses from Cosmic Consciousness within which we dwell. If you choose to read this book, set aside the limiting beliefs to which you are presently attached, giving yourself the opportunity to view life anew within the aspect of I AM. You will experience an invitation to know yourself as union. In the words of this book’s speaker, “Come, witness yourself as I AM within ME.”
How did the book come to life?
I have one other physical book in publication. It is called The Call, Awakening the Angelic Human. I wanted to have a second physical, published book. I realized that with all of the questions I am constantly asked that I had the making of a book from those questions.
Why did you decide to write this particular book?
Since most people ask me the same questions, I realized that it would be easy to answer the questions from within Source Consciousness as I do readings. This would give me one source for all of the answers that people are looking for in their questions.
What other books are similar to yours?
Conversations with God and The Course in Miracles
How did you decide upon the questions and answers you used?
Since I had hundreds of questions to choose from, I narrowed my focus to the 75 questions that would address most people’s general interest.
What did it feel like to write a book from Cosmic Consciousness?
I naturally operate from Cosmic Consciousness on a daily basis. Since I was born knowing the invisible world as naturally as the visible world, I do spiritual readings from the same space. This is my most comfortable place of being.
Did it take a long time to complete the book?
It took about 5 months, which isn’t very long at all.
Why do you think that readers will enjoy this book?
Most people want the answers to spiritual questions from a standpoint that does not include a religious belief. I wrote this book from this space. There is no belief system attached to my writing.
List three adjectives about your book.
Inspirational, shocking, thought provoking
How did the story that is part of the original text come about?
My beloved, Philip, suggested that I write a story that would illustrate the living of the answer to the question. At first, I did not believe that I would be up to writing a fictional account. What happened really is that the story wrote itself.
Are the characters in the story real or fictional?
The characters are all purely fictional which made it even more interesting since I didn’t think about how or why they were going to do something. The words simply flowed from within me.
Tell us about the book tour; what you are going to offer in each location.
We will be taking the book on tour throughout the U.S. in 2013. Besides signing copies of the book, we will also be offering a workshop to teach people how to access Cosmic Consciousness as I do.
After the book tour and workshops are you going to offer other Divining Truth courses?
Yes, I have created a website that will host additional courses in accessing the inner voice that is present for each person.
Is there going to be a sequel to the book or the story?
I am seriously thinking about writing a sequel of the story. Time will tell.
Have you written your entire life? Have you always considered yourself a writer?
Yes, I have written my whole life. Most of my more devoted writing began about the age 25 and has continued for the last 40 years. I also have two e-books available on my website plus a lot of teaching material for my classes. I have always written my own material and rely on a small amount of research for backup. I feel it is important to teach only what you truly know.
Why do you write? Is it something you’ve always done, or always wanted to do?
Writing feeds my soul. It allows me to put down in writing the strength of my own awareness and to bring my knowing to others. I also have a blog that I write for nearly every day. Whatever is coming up is what I write about and since humanity is going through such an enormous change and transformation, it is easy to find subjects to write about daily. Writing is much more than a hobby for me.
What are your thoughts on self-publishing verses traditional publishing?
Self-publishing gives you control over your publishing process. I enjoy being able to have my book turn out the way I want it to and would self-publish again.
Why did you decide to publish with Infinity Publishing?
After much research, I discovered that Infinity Publishing offered everything I wanted in a publisher from ebook conversion of my paperback to complete distribution. I also noticed that Infinity Publishing was the only self-publishing house on the Internet with no complaints listed against it. I have been quite happy with my decision.
