Who inspired Starseeds? My muses…

Every writer has it’s muses and I am no different in that respect. I write with meaning, there is always a deeper purpose behind my stories. Its creation is not by chance, but by divine inspiration- or so it seems. It almost feels like there is an insistent calling that hopes, or sometimes, demands to be put into writing and this was the main feeling behind The Starseeds Series.

Go HERE to know HOW Star Rise came to be, and WHO inspired is genesis.

Here is a clue…

My muses: Seth, Sienna and Syler- The Trinity

My muses: Seth, Sienna and Syler- The Trinity

Yep- you’ve guessed it. It was my kids. Sienna is the main character and while she is only 7, her personality is already strong and it inspired me to create Sienna Sinclair. The other two characters I cannot quite say, without dishing out too much. But I assure you, you will be in for quite a surprise. I loved writing about my daughter this book links us in a special way. My other kids too as you will soon see.

We all have a story to tell, we all have some message we want to share with the world. So I invite everyone, writer or not, to share their wealth of experience and knowledge, because it might just create an amazing story, memoir, autobiography, fiction or non-fiction or it may become a piece of art or a symphony. Let it exist and let it touch every heart.

Free your inner- true self, who is waiting to burst out and show the world what it is made of!

In light and love,

Wisdom received from the heavens

DIvine wisdom from above

As Above, So Below

“Look at the stars, at the magnificent sky and realize that the starlight comes down to bathe us with divine wisdom”.

―Mariela Stewart

For me, the stars have been a magical element in my life. When I ponder at the vastness of the stars above, I am entranced and the inspiration and wisdom I receive is limitless and speaks to my soul. Call it God, the Universe, the Creator, the Source, Akasha- they are one and the same.

Many artists, scientists, writers, musicians have connected to this source to create masterpieces. Sadly, in our day in age, we are entrapped by technology and do not look up at the heavens who have the ability to bring forth universal wisdom and inspiration that has the power to create our reality and change our world.

So look at the sky, even if it is for 5 minutes and see how you too can connect to the source, who will connect back with you and will speak to your soul.

Star Rise- The Initiation is all about this light, this force that has the power to change you from within, which will expand without and will touch your life in every way. Let the light pour forth.

I end my post with a phrase from inventor Nikola Tesla, whom you will read more about in my book. Go HERE to learn more about this genius.

“My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists.”

― Nikola Tesla

Take the first step towards your dreams

20130910-110534.jpg
I truly love this message! Since it reflects how once we take the first step towards our goals and dreams, the universe will begin to respond and shower us with opportunities and signs that will guide us to accomplish our dreams. Today I realized- after having a conversation with a great friend- that our dreams will cease to be if they are in the back burner. And not until you decide once and for all, despite the challenges, those dreams can and will become a reality. You just need to believe and have faith in yourself and your dreams!
The Star Rise series is about those struggles that make us human, but as soon as we make a choice it propels us to greatness!
I end this note with a phrase by the great Martin Luther King, Jr:
“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”

Dream BIG!

20130909-084315.jpg
I love this message- “If your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not BIG enough.”
Sometimes we put a limit on ourselves since we believe we don’t deserve greatness. But we do! It is our birthright to be happy and attain peace and whatever else or hearts desire.
Allow yourself to dream big and see what wonders you will begin to attract into your life! Don’t forget to believe in yourself, since you have something wonderful within that is waiting to burst out.
Break the limiting thoughts and BELIEVE! You are more powerful than what you think you are. You can attain greatness- no doubt- so go ahead and dream BIG! And scare your own self! You deserve it!

Gunnar Eriksson, a two-hundred-year-old werewolf, knows there’s no place in his life for love because everyone close to him is doomed. And then he meets Stella O’Sullivan, the one destined to be his, and battles with his instinctive need to claim her.

Stella is instantly attracted to the ruggedly handsome Gunnar Eriksson, but soon discovers he is a man with secrets, a man filled with pain, a man plagued with inner demons. And as her attraction for him mounts, so does her compassion and warmth. She discovers he is grieving for his dead son.

As their passion and attraction heightens, a sinister plot unfolds. An evil so malevolent, her life is in danger. And Gunnar must race against time to save Stella.

The power of thoughts

The power of our thougths

The power of our thoughts

When I saw this picture I was reminded of the times when my thoughts were not as positive as I would have liked them to be and I felt I was spiraling downward into an abyss. When you loose the control and power over your own life, you literally feel out of flow.

On one occasion, I was so negative, my oldest son Seth, who is 9 and somewhat of a sage-if you ask me- told me: “Mom- remember what you always tell me. Only think of what you want.” At that moment in time, I was complaining about bills and other stuff that came into my life and instead of handling it like I usually do- which is in a peaceful state, focusing on the end result- I let the negative frequency envelop me and my emotions were out of whack!

So this little wise person reminded me of the very things I had taught him, but had forgotten. I know it is much easier to just cry about it and become consumed by the situations that we live in. Since it is very hard to feel abundance when you can barely make by from month to month. But the trick is to shift this awareness of lack and focus on all the wonderful things you do possess: health, children, a roof over your head, food, loving pets, a magnificent sunset (which are always free!), a rainbow, the love of our partner, and there are many many more things to be grateful for.

Just so you can see how the power of words and imagination can literally make your dreams come true, my son Seth, who has always dreamed of being a professional soccer player was scouted and admitted into the MLS Chicago Fire Academy team! He is on his path of hopefully one day becoming a professional soccer player! It is important to teach our children and those around us that they are more powerful than what society makes us think we are. Whatever happens, at least Seth is getting to live this experience, which he himself has created (along with hard work) and believing in himself. Hey- who knows- he may be the next Cristiano Ronaldo and play for his favorite football club- Real Madrid!

So when we focus on what we have and think only of what we would like to have more of and our emotions shift to those of gratitude, then we will then begin to receive more of what we desire.

Don’t let your negative thoughts hold you back! Reject them and replace them with positive thoughts and see how quickly your emotions and life shifts.
