The story in a nutshell:
When his father is diagnosed with cancer, Nathan escapes the stress at home by dreaming his way into a fantasy dimension. But even there, trouble is brewing as evil ‘Reactors’ take over the world. He joins a band of rebels led by a carefree woman called Rada, and as he struggles to understand her cryptic leadership style, he begins to realise that the messages he is hearing could help his sick father… and himself.
Power of the Light is an allegorical story that sheds light on the ancient theme of good versus evil whilst affirming healthy life choices that are backed by the latest research in nutrition, human behaviour, psychoneuroimmunology, biology and quantum physics.
I decided to launch this book now because of the relevance of the zeitgeist: illness and fear, and agendas regarding control of the population via lockdown and potential mandatory vaccination/chipping, etc. We all face choices between following ‘the party line’ and conscious, deliberate creation of our lives.
The current virus is being loudly proclaimed as wildly dangerous but the actual statistics don't back that up, and there is a very smelly trail of subterfuge that one can follow right to the feet of big institutions like the Centre for Disease Control, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Rockefeller Institute. I've shared some of the relevant links in past blogs and on my FB page but there are so many more…
Here's a snippet from the dreamworld part of the book:
He is walking along a street, vaguely aware of more streets on one side of him and fields on the other side. It’s a lovely, sunshiny, blue-sky day. The air feels warm and there’s something like hay in the fields. He walks along, humming a song.
The next minute he’s in a house with lots of people, a happy family of people, who are all talking at once and coming and going with doors opening and closing and stuff happening. A large man offers him some food and then someone calls, ‘It’s starting!’ and everyone goes into the lounge room to watch something on TV. He goes with them, finding a seat on the floor because the room is so crowded. It’s a really old-fashioned TV, like the sort his parents had when they were little. He wonders about that.
The screen flickers and crackles and then a frowning man with thick brown hair appears and makes an announcement.
“In times like these we must be realistic,” he says heavily, and the people in the room all stir a bit and murmur. “The time for dreaming is over. These are emergency measures. It looks serious because it is. Please adjust your picture to match the facts.”
Nathan looks around him at all the people who are watching the TV. Most of them are frowning.
“You see,” someone says, “I told you.”
The man on TV begins to make exactly the same announcement all over again. Somewhere in the house a door opens and a voice calls, “Yoohoo! Where are you?”
“In here!” someone yells, and a moment later a woman wearing a glorious orange-patterned dress comes bursting into the room like a lovely warm breeze.
“You missed it,” someone says.
“Oh hooey,” she replies, with a quick shrug. She has a dimple in one cheek that makes her whole face light up. “That message is just hooey.”
“Don’t say that,” someone says. “These are dark times. We need to be careful.”
“Hooey!” the smiley orange person says again. “Hooey, hooey, hooey!”
Someone echoes the frowning TV man: “The time for dreaming is over. You can’t ignore the facts, Rada.”
“The time for dreaming is just starting,” Rada contradicts, leaning forwards with an intense smile. She straightens up. “So – who’s with me?”
A genuine pandemic right now is the explosion of chronic disease in people of all ages, from 4% in the 1960s to to 46% (among children!) today. One wonders why the government doesn't address this issue when simple non-interventionist solutions are being bellowed to the world from all sorts of reputable quarters. Cancer, diabetes, heart disease... so many of these conditions can be reversed through good nutrition and the removal of toxins from one's diet and environment.
One reader told me he found my Power of the Light story quite dark (:-)); the beginning is dark, because finding out that your father has life-threatening cancer is a dark experience. But there are empowering transformative options and choices available to everyone, and I've introduced some of those in the book. And, of course, the key idea is that we don't resolve issues by fighting thte darkness but by turning on the light.
Here's a snippet from Nathan's real world story:
When he came home from school there was a funny feeling in the house. It was quiet, but it was usually quiet, so that was nothing new. His dad worked alone in a tiny study at the back of the house and could type away even if a bomb had gone off next door, as his mum often said, and she worked in the city and wouldn’t be home for a while.
Nathan dropped his school bag in his bedroom and walked to the kitchen. His mother had made him egg sandwiches for lunch and he hated egg sandwiches so he’d given them to Eric and now he was starving. He pulled the fridge door open and that was when he heard it, a little noise like a sob. He paused, listening, but it was quiet again so he turned back to the fridge. There it was: last night’s lasagne.
Food, fork, and he was on his way to the lounge room to watch TV when he heard it again. And this time that was definitely a sob. Someone was crying.
Nathan stopped again and cocked his head, listening. “Dad?” he called out, and the sobbing noise stopped. Instead, there was a murmur of voices and then a door opening and his mother said, “Nathe?”
“What are you doing home?” Nathan asked, turning toward her voice. She came around the corner from her bedroom and he saw that she had taken off those crazy-heeled shoes she wore to work but was still wearing her blue suit, although it didn’t look as sharp as it had that morning; it looked crumpled and the skirt was twisted. But it was her red eyes he noticed in particular, her red eyes and mussed-up hair.
“Hey, Nathe,” she said, and wrapped her arms around him, pressing him close. She was warm and smelt faintly of mint. He wriggled a bit; the container of lasagne was still in his hand and he didn’t want to drop it. “How was school?” she asked through a sniff.
“Okay,” he said. “Are you sick?”
“No!” she exclaimed in a strange voice, and loosened her grip on him so she could take a step back and look at him. “Why do you say that?”
“Well, you’re home early and you sound funny…”
“Oh.” His mother twisted her wedding ring for a moment, staring at the ground. Then she looked directly at him and took his hand. “It’s Dad, love. He’s sick.”
Brett would already be watching at his place and they liked watching at the same time so they could call each other to talk about stuff. “I’ll eat this and then I’ll go see him,” Nathan said, taking a step backwards, toward the lounge room.
“Okay,” she replied, without moving, just standing there, and her expression was so sad that he stopped where he was too. Tears were gathering in her eyes and spilling over.
“Why are you crying?”
“It’s not just – a cold,” she spurted out, in a voice that was snuffly with crying. “It looks bad.”
“What sort of bad?” Nathan asked, but he didn’t really want to know.
She shook her head, unable to speak, wiping the back of her hand across her nose, and crying more and more.
Feedback from two teenage readers:
“I really liked this book! Power of the Light has a great message and lessons that are really needed right now. I particularly liked that Nathan is learning this stuff at a young age.”
- Luna, age 17
“This book was amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed reading every word of the adventures of Nathan as he learns many valuable lessons while his dad goes through the tough times of cancer. The lessons this book has on healthy eating and having a healthy mind are well worth the read and should be taught to everyone. I would also recommend this book not just for the fact that it has great life lessons but also that it is an entertaining read and had me wanting to read it all in one sitting!”
- Jasper, age 14
Internationally renowned Medical intuitive, Julie Lewin, shared this feedback:
“Everyone needs to read this book. I was sad when I had finished – I could have read on and on... The wisdom is precious. I will highlight it so I can remember the process. I laughed to myself when I realised the words ‘creator’ and ‘reactor’ have the same letters in them. That was my biggest pivotal moment in the book. I would have no hesitation recommending this book to my entire community. The concepts are phenomenal. I’ve been on this spiritual journey for 35 years but it changed the way I look at the world. Totally amazing.”
If I handed you a $100 bill, would you...
- buy something that makes you feel good?
- save it?
- pay a bill?
- give it away?
Your answer reveals something of your money personality, your values, and your childhood programming.
It’s important to value ourselves, so (a) can be a worthy option, especially if we rarely treat ourselves. But if we can’t hold onto money, if
More than ever, it is time to hold the vision of co-creating the world we want to experience. The world today is not as it was…
And I’m not talking about the virus and lockdown. For sure everything has changed due to the ‘deadly’ virus but once you look behind the curtain, you discover so much more you hadn’t known that the whole world changes shape.
I shared some thoughts in my last blog about the current ‘pandemic’ and the agendas behind it, and the fact that, coming from a Holocaust background, the signs of increasing (and dictatorial) government control are alarming.
Signing up for a tracking app is all too similar to the Star of David armband that the Jews were required to wear in WWII Germany and Poland, to my mind. Freedom of speech seems to be an endangered species…
So how is this story likely to end?
Writers know that you milk a storyline for as much drama as you can!
More and more people are beginning to ask questions about the virus and lockdown. One of my chief values is independent thought. I hope you'll join me in exploring some of the issues we are facing today...
More people, even in mainstream, are wondering why there are such severe travel restrictions given what is now emerging about the virus:
- that it’s not nearly as dangerous as we were initially told
- that the rate of death is on par with any year’s influenza statistics. (Details on this point below.)
- that it is pneumonia in the wake of the virus that kills, not the virus itself. (See video link with epidemiologist below)
- that the calls for a vaccine are suspicious since a patent for the virus was applied for in 2006 (US2006257852), and a patent for the vaccine was applied for in 2014 and granted in November 2019 (EP3172319B1)…
And then there are questions about the lockdown and enforced separations:
Did you know that Isaac Newton wrote his great work, Principia, during the Black Plague, when the university where he worked was closed for nearly two years from 1665 to late 1666?
During his ‘lockdown’ at home, Newton researched mathematics, physics and optics, and laid out the three laws of motion.
What are YOU doing with your time?
So far three new people have contacted me seeking book coaching or writing classes in order to take advantage of this period to work on their own projects. I’d love to support you too – and your kids!
Here are some options that might suit:
We are living in extraordinary times. This is a unique world experience that we are having right now, and truly the biggest virus is probably fear. So here are some thoughts that I hope will serve you in combating anxiety and finding the upside of the coronavirus health issue and lockdown.
I call my e-newsletter/blog ‘The Whole News’ because I want to train myself to look at an issue completely; I want to be able to see both the benefits and the drawbacks, since every issue in life is two-sided. There are benefits for us personally and nationally and internationally. Here are some of my thoughts – please share your ideas in the comments area below.
BENEFITS OF CORONAVIRUS LOCKDOWN
It’s International Women’s Day this Sunday and I’d like to call upon women everywhere to harness their extraordinary creative power and stare down this ‘coronavirus’ panic!
From the point of view of living as conscious creators of our lives, it’s just crazy to keep focusing on it and giving it so much energy. It’s a basic principle of life that ‘what we feed, grows’. ‘Where the attention goes, the energy flows.’
The best way to protect yourself and your family is by keeping your and their immune systems resilient, and the best ways to do that are:
A long long time ago (2006)
I self-published a novel called The Mastery Club – See the Invisible, Hear the Silent, Do the Impossible.
In 2007 it won an award for youth fiction
and I began giving talks and running workshops.
I received many many beautiful emails and messages of appreciation.
Within a couple of years I’d sold 5000 books,
putting it in the ‘Australian bestseller’ category.
In 2009 I was having coffee with an enthusiastic reader when she innocently asked me,
‘Is there anything I can do to help?’
‘Well, if you happen to know a film producer, that would be great!’ I joked.
Enter: The Universe.
I’m reading an article by Bill Gammage, who at the time of writing was an adjunct professor in the Humanities Research Centre of the Australian National University and author of prize-winning book, The Biggest Estate on Earth: How Aborigines Made Australia.
I first read this article years ago, and the magazine (Australian Book Review) has been kicking around among my things ever since. Suddenly I pick it up again and the timing is exquisite.
I’ve just finished reading a book called Imperfect – How Our Bodies Shape The People We Become by Lee Kofman.
Lee was scarred as a result of several major operations when she was a child from injuries sustained in a bus accident and from a defective heart. To begin with, she saw her scars as ‘badges of honour’ but as a young woman in Israel,
As keynote speaker at the Sisters U-Night event on Friday in Romsey, Anita Bentata gave a punchy and passionate talk that touched on her own experiences as a young school-leaver, teen mum, and survivor of abuse.
It is particularly moving for me to hear her story, given our chequered relationship as sisters. Anita and I were very close when we were young
Okay, at one level that’s a weird question because obviously anyone can set goals, and certainly anyone who needs to achieve a big task is wise to break it down into achievable goals. But I thought I’d share a few related ideas about feminine energy and the goal-setting process...
For example, have you heard of Claire Zammit and her organisation Feminine Power / Evolving Wisdom? She offers some wonderful courses (that I intend to do some time soon!) in which she explains her perspective that men and women should go about their goals in quite different ways
