Earth Allies small

I had the pleasure to make the front and back cover for this book, also a little treat inside. It has been a journey to make all these drawings and under the guidance by my good friend Vanessa, I made these drawings with guided colors. I hope you enjoy the story as much as I did. I think it is a story for the whole family.

I would like to ask you to sponsor this incredible gifted writer, so that her dream can come true. Publishing this story in hardcover. You can buy this e-book on: Amazon.com

What are your ambitions for your writing career?

Vanessa:   I see myself writing more books. I can’t say how many or how often but, I plan to write when I’m compelled to spread a message. I have a few ideas and a message for future writings.  In fact, I have already started on another book.  It’s a slow process because I want it to evolve into the story that needs to be told.

Which writers inspire you?

Vanessa: I can’t say that any one writer inspires me. I enjoy reading a variety of works by various authors with their own unique writing styles.

In response to your question – my esoteric beliefs and my need to spread a message of love inspired me to write Earth Allies.

So, what have you written?

Vanessa:  I haven’t written much. I’m a novice. Through the years I’ve written a few poems. One of my poems, Lonely Heart, is published in the Silent Journey, a compilation by the International Library of Poetry.  I wrote a short story for my youngest daughter, Lacee’s Back Yard Adventure.  I may reinvent it and publish it as an e-book.

Presently I’m preparing my e-book, Earth Allies for publication. It’s a short story for kids ages 9 to 13.  Earth Allies is about a young boy who joins with fairies to prevent a worldwide disaster.  If all goes according to plan Earth Allies will be published this year.  I am going to independently publish and the process from beginning to end could take up to three months, which is great.  If I were to traditionally publish my book it could take as long as eighteen months before it is actually published.
Where can we buy or see them?

Vanessa:  

Earth Allies is available as an e-book on Amazon.com/US; Amazon.com/UK; Amazon.com/CA; and Amazon.com/AU.

My poem, Lonely Heart, is published in the The Silent Journey, a compilation by the International Library of Poetry. It’s also on Amazon.

 

Give us insight into your main character.

Vanessa:  Eleven year old Ethan is the main character.  He is somewhat of a loner. Ethan is very loving and compassionate.   He helps is mother with his litter sister and chores around the house.  He is also a good friend.  Because of his loving nature and pure heart he possesses the ability to facilitate a remarkable event.

What genre is your book and what draws you to it?

Vanessa:  My book is fiction. I’m drawn to fiction because I can really let my imagination rule the pen.  I find when I’m in that zone, my imagination takes over and writing comes easy.

Tell us about the book cover and who designed it?

Vanessa:  Well, I actually have two different book covers.  Initially, I asked you Lisa to create my book cover.  Lisa’s art is beautiful and I knew she could capture what I wanted to convey on the cover.  When I asked Lisa to do the cover, she accepted and offered her service as a gift.  I was very touched by her loving, generous nature.  It’s not often that I am the recipient of such a kind gesture and I am very grateful.

I had set a deadline for myself to publish my story as an e-book.  As I got closer to the deadline the cover wasn’t ready.  Lisa was ill and couldn’t work on the book cover.   I told her to take care of herself and that I would get someone else to do the cover.  I didn’t want Lisa to feel pressured to get the book cover done when she was dealing with a health issue.  So, I found Digital Donna.  Her work was good but it was not exactly what I wanted.

I launched the e-book last year on Amazon and soon realized I needed to change the book cover. After seeing some of the other books and the book cover design, I knew I had to replace the book cover on Earth Allies.

I don’t remember the sequence of events but Lisa and I talked after she was on the road to recovery. It was then that I realized I had hurt my sweet friend’s feelings when I decided to get another illustrator for my book.  I felt really bad.  My intention was to release Lisa from feeling obligated to do the book cover since she was ill. I was only concerned for her well-being. We cleared up the misunderstanding and Lisa still wanted to do the illustration.  She asked questions about the story to get a feel for what I wanted. Lisa created the book cover, interior boarder and the back cover.  I am so happy with her illustrations.  Lisa’s drawings depict what my imagination gave me for the illustrations. This venture is a first for both of us.  Lisa’s beautiful work is getting more exposure and I believe the book cover will catch the eye of kids 9 – 13 years old, drawing them to read my book.

I’m very fortunate to have Lisa as my friend.  She is a talented artist.

Do you think the cover plays an important part in the buying process?

Vanessa:  Yes, absolutely.  The cover has to be eye catching.  Especially when writing children’s books. The cover has to grasp their attention to get them to read the book.  It has to stimulate their imagination.

How are you publishing your book and why?

Vanessa:  I wanted to take the traditional route but after researching and comparing the pros and cons of traditional publishing and independent publishing, I decided to independently publish my book.  It’s not easy to get a book traditionally published.  It involves quite a process.

When did you decide to become a writer?

Vanessa:  I didn’t set out in life wanting to become a writer.  I’ve written stories and poems as a hobby, and as a way to release emotions.  But, three years ago I felt a need to write and spread a message of love, unity and compassion. That’s why I wrote Earth Allies.

Where do your ideas come from?

 Vanessa:  My ideas come from my spiritual beliefs and my personal esoteric experiences.

For your own reading, do you prefer e-books or traditional paper/hard back books?

Vanessa:  There’s nothing like holding a hard-back book in your hands. I also like the smell of it as it begins to age.  Mostly, I own paper-backs and a few hard-back books. I do however, own a Kindle and I love it.  It is very portable and I can take it with me anywhere and read my favorite book(s).

What would you say are the main advantages and disadvantages of self-publishing against being published or the other way around?

Vanessa:  If I understand your question, you’re asking what are the advantages and disadvantages of traditional publishing and independent publishing.

Well, when I researched traditional publishing, I learned the benefits of traditional publishing is wide distribution, an advance, they do the editing, formatting, and cover design. There are no out of pocket expenses.  The disadvantages are, in some instances it can take eighteen months before publication.  They have power over the title and cover of the book.  The royalty payments aren’t that great and you need an agent to break into traditional publishing.

When an author self-publish (Independent Publishing) all rights to the book is retained. Full control of the cover design, layout, and title is under the control of the author.  The author chooses the editors, proofreaders, layout, and cover design.  Publication takes about three months from the time the book is submitted for publication.  The disadvantages are out of pocket expense for editing, proofreaders, cover design, copyright number.  Marketing resources are limited, and the book may not sell well.

If I could retain all rights to my book and be involved in the marketing process and creative alterations of my book I would prefer to go traditional.  As an independent publisher I have to do all the work.  But, it is a good learning experience and I embrace it.

 

Where do you see publishing going in the future?

Vanessa:  I see more and more indie authors getting their work out there.  I’m not saying traditional publishing is a dying art but it is very difficult to go that route.  Independent publishing will continue to grow.  It affords anyone the opportunity to publish a book.

How can readers discover more about you and your work?

Vanessa:  Readers may visit my website: http://www.vafarriawritings.com where I write about spiritual things, and post poems by various poets.  You will find information about my book there. I’m also planning to advertise on the social networks.  It’s a lot of work but I’m enjoying the process.

Repost: Adrial – Bring On The Light Show!

As I was reading through one of my 2012 spiritual diaries I found this article gem that I think still applies to these days. Thanks to Leslee and Adrial to directing me again to these beautiful post.

This article is written by Leslee Hare:

One step we can make, closer to DISCLOSURE…

Adrial has shared with me that there is a tremendous Galactic Light Show that is preparing to unfold. Please be aware that this will happen gradually, over time, as the power of the Light Show meditation increases (please see meditation guidance below)…

We believe that our Friends’ ships are cloaked… What I learned last night is that we are actually cloaking Gaia, also, and we can now meditate to release this cloak and be able to see our brothers and sisters in the skies!

I’d like to share what I was shown, in preparation for meditations that we can all do between August 16 and August 18, to help our Star Families reveal themselves…

I’m still on  my trip to Pagosa Springs, so I will just share a brief chat below… please ask questions through comments if you like. This original post is here: http://wp.me/p2saNx-8J

Here is the mediation that Adrial says can help us to release this cloaking grid from Gaia:

1. Please sit under the sky if possible, or near an open window.

2. Please envision Gaia with a 3-dimensional lattice woven through Her many layers and dimensions: Please visualize the light grid as brilliantly shining and pulsing, its energy flowing steadily from point to point and filling Gaia with love, compassion, and connectivity between all life force beings, both inside and outside of Her physical realm.

3. Next please look at Gaia’s 3-dimensional Cloaking Grid, which also penetrates her many layers and dimensions. Please see this Grid as being held by Beings of Light, who are located on Gaia’s surface, on Her Inner Surface, and inside Her Interior Regions (such as Telos and Agartha). Between these Beings of Light, and flowing outwards into the atmosphere, please envision an electromagnetic cloak, appearing like a soft billowing fog, rolling like clouds and covering the view of the multitude of lightships which lovingly surround Gaia and us.

4. Please look into your heart region, and feel the love that Gaia, our Star Families, and WE feel for our beloved companions here on Gaia.

5. Please see yourself as drawing back the curtain of the Cloaking Grid, gradually revealing to all who wish to see, the glorious display of lights and colors that come to us from the countless Light Ships that surround us, high above our atmosphere. Please understand that this revealing will be like a magnificent fireworks display, all around the globe… Like a dance of aurora borealis, flickering and rainbow-colored, and able to be seen from any point on Gaia’s surface.

6. Please feel the joy and excitement that so many will feel when we realize that we may now access at any time, this beautiful Light Show in our heavens. We will soon be able to see our Friends and Loved Ones!

Please share this meditation with as many as you feel may be inclined to help release the Cloaking Grid, and unveil our Friends in the skies!

With deep love and brilliant Light,

Leslee

(Here is some description of what I was shown last night…)

(I was driving across Oklahoma, towards Amarillo, Texas…)

…And I was asking to be shown/understand what are the reasons we cannot see them more
[8:54:07 AM] Leslee Hare: They told me that there were actually 100 ships right in front of me, just over the horizon, so I was looking at that part of the sky
[8:54:33 AM] Leslee Hare: I noticed that it looked different… we cannot see the stars near the earth…
[8:55:01 AM] Leslee Hare: What they showed me is that many of us understand “cloaking” in a limited way.
[8:55:18 AM] Leslee Hare: Ships CAN and DO cloak themselves, but GAIA also cloaks herself!
[8:55:27 AM] Leslee Hare: So others can see in, but we cannot see out!

[8:55:48 AM] Leslee Hare: There are two types of “light-grids” on Gaia
[8:56:36 AM] Leslee Hare: One holds the light, and this one we are familiar with… the other holds the cloaking of Gaia… And we can meditate as a group to release this cloak… there are enough of us now who wish to see and understand

[8:56:42 AM] PREDRAG BRACANOVICH: LIKE A SEE THROUGH MIRROR…
[8:56:56 AM] Leslee Hare: exactly, exactly!!! 😀
[8:57:38 AM] Leslee Hare: there are also three layers to both of these grids, and they are made up of beings on the outer surface, the inner surface, and in the interstital regions like Agartha
[8:58:11 AM] Leslee Hare: so the beings involved triangulate the grid… it is really a lattice, penetrating the entire planet…
[8:58:37 AM] Leslee Hare: and as I was driving, I could see this in the darkness, much like how I can see electromagnetic auras
[8:58:49 AM] PREDRAG BRACANOVICH: WOW…
[8:58:51 AM] Leslee Hare: it looked like billowing fog laid over the low horizon
[8:59:10 AM] Leslee Hare: yes, I wanted to drive all night so I could watch the stars…

[9:00:06 AM] Leslee Hare: So I want to put this into a post for people to share… There is something we can do to meditate for the 17th
[9:00:46 AM] Leslee Hare: (chuckle) that’s sort of right… I still am erasing doubt, as you know, of course… but this understanding helps so much… of course its perfect!
[9:01:05 AM] PREDRAG BRACANOVICH: SAME DATE CAME TO ME…. 17/18 WILL BE DATE WHEN MILIONS OF SOULS WILL SEE SHIPS AND THE JUPITER/SECOND SUN THROUGH DAY…

Dream: Spirit Animal

scandreamdeer0001

This is what I saw in my dream. I am this person with my spirit animal , the Stag.

I had another interesting dream. Different from the first one.

I friend of mine, she invited me to her school. So I went there but I felt a bit out-of-place. After she is gone, I feel even more out-of-place, like I don’t belong there. I am standing in a big classroom with a stage. People are talking and I am alone now, my friend is somewhere else. Now I feel that I don’t belong here and I hide behind some classroom curtains and observe the people from there.

The dream changes and me and my friend are in a lab, there are two technicians with us. I see an odd-looking chair in the middle of the room, surrounded by computers and other technical equipment.

I don’t know how I know, but I am not supposed to be sitting in that chair without Kelly Shelby present (guide?). My friend wants to try it out and the technicians prepare her for this experience/experiment.

My friend sits in the chair and her hands and feet are getting strapped in with bands that holds in the middle a blue energy/electricity. They then put some special crème on her face to track motion and put a sort of cap on her head that resembles those caps to watch her brain activity. They start it up and now I am standing behind the chair next to one of the technicians. It seems she is going through a profound experience. Behind me is a sort of electricity bulb that starts to fire up, the energy is coming from my friend and it starts to glow purple. I am in awe and the technician tells me that she is very powerful.

Now it is my turn to sit in the chair and yes I couldn’t wait until Kelly was back. I wanted to try it now. I sit in the chair and they do the same things they did with my friend. But the straps are not holding well over my hands. I feel tingling from the electricity emitting from straps, it is not hurting. My straps are falling of my hands and there is young woman standing next to me. I asked her if she could put it back for me, and she did. When they begin I am experiencing a different experience, I am now laying on a slow rolling band.  There is a sort hangover but it is blocked by a pillow and on top of the pillow are books. They are blocking my way so I yell at the technicians that this portal is blocked, but it seems they can’t hear me. So I managed to clear it myself.

I am back in the chair and I hear a female voice and I know it is Kelly. She says to the technician “Go gentle, don’t fry her”. She looks calm and emits a peaceful and loving aura. But it seems I am to powerful for the machine and it results in machine failure.

I pop out of the air, like I was teleported out of the chair and to another place. And in that moment of teleportation I reconnected with my higher self (see drawing I made) and my spiritual animal guide, a majestic stag. I am a wizard corporal and wearing a violet cape and holding a staff.

Now Kelly stands before me and asks what happened, if I can recount my experiences. I tell her about my higher self and my spirit animal guide. I keep my face a bit down because I don’t want her to recognize me because I didn’t follow the orders not to go into the chair without her. She asks why I choose this spirit animal guide.

Note: I suddenly realized that violet/purple holds two of my favorite colors, blue and red.

 

 

 

What is happening in our skies?

I have been following some YouTube video’s from Matt Rogers the Sky watcher and comes with very interesting evidence of what is happening in the skies. What is your take about this? Did you notice also that the sun is shining brighter then it used to?

Here is three pictures I found very interesting, as I never seen this before. On both sides of the sun, in the clouds on the right and left side, you see beginning of a halo. I really could see it with my eyes too. I opened the window so that I could have a clear shot of what I was seeing.

He was also so kind to feature two of my pictures in his video that I posted below.

These are my pictures that are featured:

Keep on looking at the skies.

Dream: inter-dimensional shift

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Orange moon in the Johannesburg skies.

I had a dream last night that was quite unusual.

After my meditation I had following dream:

I was driving in my car with my some friends, but there was also an unwanted government person in the back seat. He downloaded a virus in my car, so that my car now drives in a certain direction. The road was dark and it was winter, the snow on the road was high. I told this man from the government that I didn’t want to go that way. But no matter what I did, I went in the direction this man form the government wanted me to go.

We go no further as the snow is to high, it seems we are at an abandoned trainstation. There are rows and rows of people who where walking towards a portal that was in the hands of the government. I didn’t wanted to go that way. A tall military man appears in front of me and he makes me instantly at ease. He felt like he could be trusted. I told him I didn’t want to go that direction and also I was a guide for my friends here. I was there to guide them in the right direction.

He agrees and takes us to the direction I wanted to go, to the inter-dimensional rift/shift. But the man from the government sees us and chases us. I manage to get all of us through this inter-dimensional rift and…. then I woke up.

I fall asleep and it was if the dream continues. Now the place changed and the inter-dimensional rift/shift is now in a church. But this church is guarded by the government. I already got to the other side of the inter-dimensional rift/shift, now I am back into the 3D world to guide others through this inter-dimensional portal. They government builds up obstacles around the church, but it is nothing for me. I sneak all the people safely past the government and guided them to the portal to the 4D and low cuffs of 5D.

I woke up again and fall asleep, and again I do the same thing and again the government builds up obstacles, I even battle a dragon to get all the people past them.

When I woke up, I felt awesome.

False Memories and Mandela Effects

RealityShifters Blog

When people hear about Mandela Effects, in which groups of individuals report remembering events differently from recorded historical records, some suggest as a possible explanation that Mandela Effect reporters are possibly experiencing false memories. The implication of Mandela Effects being “false” is made based on the assumption that whatever events are recorded are defined automatically as being “true,” so therefore people must be mistaken in thinking that they remember specific things that are different from recorded historical facts. No mention is typically made that a presumption to call Mandela Effects “false” memories assumes a bias in favor of a classical physics view of reality–which is a view of reality that has started to look somewhat shakier recently.

The connection between “false memory” and “Mandela Effect” have become so strong in recent articles and in a large number of mainstream media posts that the current definition for “false memory” on Wikipedia currently…

Summary of Brenda’s November 10, 2017, channeled 15-minute “Creation Energies” show at http://www.BlogTalkRadio.com/brenda-hoffman:  Some of you are discovering your personal pendulum has shifted to complete observer. If so, your emotional/action pendulum will soon return to the middle. Many of you – male and female – are also discovering feminine thoughts and actions. Still others – male and female – are focussing on their 3D male characteristics and blessing you with the need to deeply explore your new feminine actions.

“Dreaming or Your Reality?” is the title of last week’s “Brenda’s Blog” – her weekly channeled blog for http://www.LifeTapestryCreations.com.

Brenda’s “Creation Energies” show and “Brenda’s Blog” contain different channeled information.

Dear Ones,

Perhaps you believe the earth is dividing into two entities of “good” and “bad, ” and you do not feel worthy of the “good” earth. That earth division is not as most now…

Energy Update Spike in higher frequencies 

awakening5dhealing

We’ve got a spike in the frequencies friends. Stay centred, avoid conflict, sidestep tricky people, places or situations until this passes. Expect fear driven mainstream news to peak, those unawakened become more disturbed and disoriented by waves of higher vibrations washing over Gaia. Talking heads, high profile elite, celebrities will increasingly display malfunctions as lighter frequencies disrupt lower vibrational beings’ energy. Expect to see strange, bizarre events worldwide as well as closer to home.

It’s all getting very trippy friends. We are being drawn to wavelengths of higher dimensions, to access these spaces we release karmic load from our mind body soul system. Many will fight this, they will feel unable or ill equipped to look inside, to meet their shadow self, to release their demons, their trauma and their hurts. To squash these emotional energies, particularly when cosmically they are being loosened like flour through a sieve for release…

It’s Ok Not To Be Ok

SoulFullHeart Way Of Life

By Jelelle Awen

It’s OK not to be OK….putting down the masks of OKness or being positive all the time. Being vulnerable to show what is really going in your heart. Sharing your tears, your fears, your concerns, your pain with those who can feel you. Being real with what parts of you are feeling and reacting to in every moment. This self permission space allows the feelings to BE, to be felt, and eventually to heal.
 
Why do we need to receive this self permission to feel? The 3D world operates on the suppression of vulnerable feeling. Analyzing feelings rather than actually dropping into the emotive ground of them. Numbing and drugging our feelings with ‘anti-feeling’ drugs…relating to our emotions as if we need to go into battle with them. As if they are diseases and illnesses that need a cure. As if they are evidence of our…

The Universe brought me back.

Falling leaves

This drawing is done by me according a challenge that I did on Facebook. The challenge was falling leaves with colors burgundy, olive and copper. I thought this was a nice drawing to come back with as it shows also rebirth for me.

I decided after a major operation in 2015 I needed some time for myself. I thought it would be only 1 year but now it is almost two years. And funny enough, on the verge of a new operation scheduled on the 18th of October, the Universe brought me back to write again on this blog. I have much to tell of the spiritual endeavors I have been having in those two years and the ones that are still coming. As for my dreams, I will start to write them down again in January 2018 as I still will be recovering from the operation.

It’s nice to start writing again , even though I never stopped writing in my spiritual diary. I also picked up my art as shown above. I also would share articles that I feel that I can correlate too and feel positive. No more fear mongering messages.

As for now I want to share this amazing podcast from Jennifer O’Neill about dreams. Some questions about my dreams are answered, some are still unanswered.

That is all for now. I wish you all a good Sunday.
