How (And Why) To Give An E-Book

Electronic books are an inexpensive and easy way to read. They are less costly than printed books, often a lot less expensive, and they are convenient. Even people who do not use a dedicated e-reader like a Kindle often have reader apps installed on their tablets and smart phones. Readers worldwide are able to enjoy their books wherever they are and carry whole libraries around in their pockets or briefcases.

With the holiday season approaching we’re all looking for gifts for our friends and families. Gifting e-books is quick, there’s no shipping involved, and you can do it from home without braving mall traffic. What’s more, the major e-book retailers allow e-books to be exchanged for store credit, so if you make a mistake and give a book that your recipient already has, she or he can exchange it right from the device screen.

For instance, when you go to an Amazon link, for instance, the Chakra Secrets Kindle, just click on “Give as a gift” and send it to your friend’s email.

Happy reading and gifting!

WRITING YOUR MEMOIR


Young people want to live in the future.

Older people want to live in the past.

Nobody wants to live in the present.

And where has joy placed itself?

Where has understanding placed itself?

 In the present.

Prem Rawat

Deep ThinkingUnderstanding all we have learned in life can be gelled into the present moment as you write your own memoir, as I did with Chakra Secrets.

If you have gone through life’s tough experiences and come out the other end with wisdom or inspiration to share, you may have a story to tell as well, and doing so can be cathartic to get your words out. Creativity is linked to the second or sacral chakra, which gets strengthened as you flow with the inspiration in your life. As you shout out your message to the world, even on paper, you’ll also be strengthening your throat chakra, which is linked to speaking your truth.

Writing a memoir can also get you into the “now” as you realize the past is over, and you’re in a new situation now.

Embrace today! Release yesterday!

~ Senica Evans

If you’re not up to writing a whole book, start by creating a title for your memoir. Would it announce your accomplishments, offer a way others could handle similar challenges, or simply tell the world where you started and where you’re headed?

Taking stock of what we’ve done in the past gives us a larger view, giving us the chance to really reflect on our lives, letting go and forgiving, and looking forward to using our new-found wisdom and freedom. You might even start to think about what you might do in the years ahead – and what the sequel’s title might be!

HOW TO SHARE YOUR WORDS

Start writing in your journal or sit at your computer, but just go for it. If you want to write a book for publication, perhaps join a writer’s group or take a workshop to hone your writing skills and get feedback.

Self-publishing an eBook or paperback has never been easier or more popular. To ensure your message gets presented in the best manner possible, be sure to invest in a good editor and book cover designer. I recommend my editors at www.IndieAuthorCounsel.com.

Namaste!

Own Your Power, Awaken Your Chakras


If you have noticed a shift in Earth energies and a vibration in your chakras, you are not alone. Wendy Joy’s book explains how we’re in the midst of a vibrational shift that gives everyone the potential to connect with Spirit to find their life’s purpose, and to make a difference in the world. She teaches the reader how to be the clearest channel possible for guidance from Spirit, and as an energy healer.

Joy’s own experiences in healing her body, mind and spirit offer self-help possibilities for all. “Speak your truth, operate from love and know your power,” she writes. Once we have done these things, our Divine life purpose, the meaning we all seek to find, becomes evident.

A Reiki Master, Joy shares her magical experiences using this hands-on healing modality, as well as chakra clearing, meditation, healing “past” lives, astral travel, intuition and psychic phenomena. As an energy healer, she explains how effective it is to ask every pain, every illness, every disease, why they are present, so that you can look underneath the pain to see what needs to be healed.

My favorite chapter asked, “Are You Feeling the Love?” Operating from love enables us to be a clear channel and heal ourselves and others. The seven tools she offers to help maintain a position of love are meditation, deep breathing to keep your energy flowing, asking for help from Spirit, watching your thoughts to keep out judgment, seeking out like-minded people, consciously sending love to every situation from your heart chakra, and keeping a positive perspective.

She also covers what is was like for her in becoming empathic and offers suggestions on what to watch for and how to deal with signs of awakening to Spirit. She stresses that Spirit will communicate with you only when you are ready, to give you any guidance that you need and desire, most likely first through concrete signs, then gut intuition through the solar plexus and heart chakra, then higher-level intuition from the throat, third eye and crown chakras, and finally conscious contact with your Spirit Guides, angels, even Jesus and other avatars. Joy bravely shares the road she has traveled on her way to spiritual awakening and is a wonderful example to follow in embracing our own power.

CHAKRAS AND THE SPIRITUAL REALM


“Keys to the Spirit World” simplifies the process of communicating with your spirit guides, who are always there to help you navigate your path through the physical world.

This book helps you use all the spiritual tools and gifts you were born with, but most likely forgot. As a child, you may have heard your spirit guide(s) through your “inner ear,” but blocked them out as you grew older and more conditioned by society’s rules of what is reality and what isn’t. This book is a breath of fresh air, saying “Yes, you can take guidance from your dreams, inner and outer voices, thoughts, and visualizations.” Plus, O’Neill offers guidance on how to relax and allow communication with your spirit guides to happen. She even includes exercises to help you tear down the walls to spirit communication.

I especially liked the section on chakras and their correlation to spirit communications. O’Neill explains how chakras, our energetic centers, allow information to be received from the spiritual realm and incorporated into the physical body. She takes you one by one through the chakras, with special emphasis on the Heart Chakra, which is elevated and expanded through higher consciousness, the Throat Chakra, used for channeling information during spirit communications, and the Third Eye Chakra, which opens you to clairvoyance and clear seeing.

The author shares some of her own experiences as a child growing up with psychic abilities and the sensations she felt in these chakra areas before she understood their relationship to the spiritual realm.

And she offers 10 Tips for Working with your Spirit Guides, invaluable for anyone who wants to have a stronger connection to spirit and accept guidance on their path.

Have you tried automatic writing, dream journaling or spirit guide meditation? O’Neill offers advice on how to use these tools to connect with your spirit guides. She ends her short yet very comprehensive giude with common blocks to spirit communication and how to solve them.

Communicating with Spirit Guides is immensely valuable – this book gives you the tools you need to take advantage of what is offered to each and every one of us from the spiritual realm.
Namaste!

Share Your Wisdom – Write A Book!


Have you gone through life’s tough experiences and come out the other end with wisdom to share? My friend Peggy has gone through chemical injury, breast cancer, broken bones and more. And she’s learned methods of coping, plus inspiration to help others as well. So, she’s starting to write. You may have a story to tell as well, and it’s cathartic (which can be good) to get your words out.

Creativity is linked to the second or sacral chakra, which gets strengthened as you flow with the inspiration in your life. As you shout out your message to the world, even on paper, you’ll also be strengthening your throat chakra, which is linked to speaking your truth.

Whether you are writing a self-help work, like I am with Balance your Life, or fiction, as my colleague R. R. Harris is penning with Double Take, it pays dividends to be organized. “An outline is crucial and saves so much time. It tells you where the story is going.” John Grisham

So, how should you start?

TITLE: Give your work a name, or something that can reference your project.

GENRE: : Be flexible as this may change as the plotline and characters and your thoughts morph and develop. List all of the genres that your story might fit into.

POINT of VIEW: Will it change from scene to scene or will the main character narrate in first person throughout? An author friend of mine said that when she began her autobiographical “coming of age” novel that her original intention was to have the first-person voice change as her character grew and matured. However as she drove further and further into the hinterlands of her work, she realized how maintaining that direction complicated her writing and de-railed it from flowing freely from her consciousness. For example, she would have to ensure that her teenager was not speaking with the voice of a worldly and wise, middle-aged maven or vice versa.

Some authors choose voice from scene to scene by weighing what character stands the most to lose. Although unless skillfully written, this approach can leave a reader wondering what is going on and especially, who is talking.

WHO wants, WHAT do they want, WHY do they want it and What/who stands in your character’s way? Not sure where to begin?

“What if X happened? That’s how you start.” Tom Clancy

“Don’t wait to be struck by an idea. If you are a writer, sit down and damn well decide to have an idea. That’s the way to get an idea.” Andy Rooney

SETTING: Can make a story gel into a dish fit for the Queen or alternatively turn it into cold tasteless soup that even hungry flies shun. Of course, there are endless possibilities. You can create memorable characters as at home in the book’s setting as a well worn slipper, but who enliven it and blaze brightly at the slightest provocation. Perhaps others triumph despite all odds or seemingly invincible villains meet their match in a unforeseen avalanche of choices that could not have been forecast.

“Most of our lives are basically mundane and dull, and it’s up to the writer to find ways to make them interesting.” John Updike

HOOK/SPARK: Yeah, the night was dark and stormy and she came to the door with nothing on but the radio, but then what? What will I write in the second paragraph and on page 87 that will keep my reader into the book? Will the last sip of my book be as satisfying as the first, or even more so?

As an author I must constantly ask – have I set-up conflict, created suspense and action and left the reader panting for more? Am I solving a problem the reader has, conveying knowledge or fulfilling a need?

“I want the reader to turn the page without thinking that she is turning the page. It must flow seamlessly.” Janet Evanovich

DON’T QUIT: “Nobody cares whether you write or not, and it’s very hard to write when nobody cares one way or the other. You can’t get fired if you don’t write, and most of the time you don’t get rewarded if you do. But don’t quit.” Andre Dubus
