1.        How did you get into this collection of inspiration with folks like Jack Canfield?

I got into this collection when I attended a Full Time Messenger conference and attended a presentation with Randy Davila who invited my to submit my manuscript.

2.        What is your chapter about?

My chapter is about the need for rituals and rites of passage for Americans.

3.        What do you think makes this book unique and who would want to read it?

I think my book is unique because we don’t have regular rites of passage that are considered American and I propose we adopt them.  I think parents will want to read this to help their children mature into healthy responsible adults, I think everyone can benefit from recognizing that each milestone we pass in life can be a rite of passage and brings with it a new status that empowers us to be more than we were before.

4.         What kind of wisdom do you have to offer the reader?

The wisdom I offer the reader is that ceremonies and rites of passage have empowered people of all ages in healthy development from their first birthday to their last.

5.        The publisher promises that the authors such as yourself are “up and coming” leaders in self-help.  How does the publisher know this and what is your expertise in “self-help”?

The publisher knows I am a leader in self-help as I am compiling the rites of passage from all cultures that now reside in the United States and am presenting them as American for the spiritual development of all of us.

6.        Most people know about Jack Canfield from the Chicken Soup books and Marci Shimoff from her Happy book … How would you like your readers to think of you?  What is your “signature niche”?

My signature “niche” is “Every breath you take is sacred”  and every birthday is a sacred graduation, a celebration of your accomplishments and an initiation into your new status.”

7.        We often hear that the “whole is greater than the sum of its parts” – how does that proverb apply to the 30 authors in this book?

The 30 authors in this book combine to create a message of peace, love and hope that is current to this moment in time.

8.        What is your most central and compelling “pearl of wisdom”?

My most central and compelling “Pearl of Wisdom” is that Every breath you take is sacred, and if you know that from birth to the end of life, you will remember that all of your life and all life itself is sacred.

1.        How did you get into this collection of inspiration with folks like Jack Canfield?

I was one of four finalists in the Next Top Self-Help Author contest produced by Conari Press.  As part of the contest, we were invited to submit a chapter for the book and mine was accepted.

2.        What is your chapter about?

My chapter is about the Quantum Soul Clearing Process.  This process helps heal the scars life leave on the soul.  It releases and removes the negative thoughts, feelings and beliefs that keep us from achieving our goals and dreams and living the life-styles we want to live.

3.        What do you think makes this book unique and who would want to read it?

This book is a cutting-edge Spiritual Technology based on the newest scientific, quantum physical and spiritual discoveries.  It is a unique blend of science and spirituality that gives readers a practical way to change the way they think, feel and believe in order to free themselves emotionally, mentally, physically, spiritually and financially and truly leave the past behind.

4.         What kind of wisdom do you have to offer the reader?

I believe that I have a deep inner wisdom of how to never give up on yourself and on your life.  I spent almost two years bed-ridden from rheumatoid arthritis.  I had two daughters I needed to raise.  I experienced several miracles that changed my life and the course of self-destruction I was on.  From that deep inner pain, I have learned true compassion and developed the inner strength, knowledge and resources to help others through extremely difficult times in their lives.  I offer readers a tool to help them free themselves from emotional, mental, physical, spiritual and financial pain, and regain their joy, their purpose and passion in their lives.

5.        The publisher promises that the authors such as yourself are “up and coming” leaders in self-help.  How does the publisher know this and what is your expertise in “self-help”?

I have been in the self-help and alternative medical field for over 25 years.  The cutting edge Spiritual technology has helped me overcome a debilitating, crippling disease; and has helped hundreds of people throughout the world heal the emotional scars that keep them from achieving their greatest goals, and dreams.  It allows them to create and live the life-style they choose.

6.        Most people know about Jack Canfield from the Chicken Soup books and Marci Shimoff from her Happy book … How would you like your readers to think of you?  What is your “signature niche”?

My signature niche is the Quantum Soul Clearing Process, and my upcoming book, “Quantum Soul Clearing: Healing the Scars Life Leaves on the Soul.” (Balboa Press)  I would like my readers to think of me as someone who can show them simple effective tools to help themselves feel better, to live happier, richer lives. I would like to known as the Quantum Soul Healer, that helps people empower themselves and to live joyously and freely, doing what they love to do.

7.        We often hear that the “whole is greater than the sum of its parts” – how does that proverb apply to the 30 authors in this book?

Each person in this book has a gift, a process or a tool that when used, can help people evolve and grow exponentially.  Not every person will resonate with each and every author.  However, there is something for everyone in this book.  There is such wisdom, love and empowerment offered within these pages that can help lift the hearts and minds of every person alive today.  Using any one or combination of the suggested ideas can change people’s lives!

8.        What is your most central and compelling “pearl of wisdom”?

That you don’t have to suffer anymore.  You have a unique tool that can very effectively and efficiently remove the negative energetic charge from any circumstance or event that has ever affected you.  By connecting with and utilizing the power of your Divine Core Center and doing the simple exercises in the Quantum Soul Clearing Process, you can quickly and easily unburden yourself and your soul of shame, guilt, fear, and any other negative emotions that have been weighing you down.  You can heal anything and create wholeness and freedom in all aspects of your life.
