The Goddess Who Forgot That She Was a Goddess

A story from Spirit

For people of all ages

To soothe our sadness

And nurture our divine blossoming

Sample page 5

Once upon a time there was a goddess who forgot that she was a goddess.
(I mean, who could forget such a thing. But she did!)

She lived up high on a beautiful hill, but didn't see any of it, because of the sadness in her heart.

Until one day she received an unexpected invitation to go into the forest....

You're invited to join the goddess on her adventure
, and savor the enchanting story, inspired artwork, and weaving of playful and meaningful moments.

As her healing adventure unfolds, she connects with her hidden sadness, feels held by the universe, discovers her divine center, and joyfully joins the circle of hearts. You might find yourself feeling some of that too.

This high-quality hardcover book is beautifully illustrated with original inspired artwork, making it a delightful treat for yourself and a keepsake gift for others.

It indirectly and experientially touches on various themes, including the spiritual nurturing of nature, the empowering transformation of emotional healing, and the blessing of authentic divine connection between people.

It contains no particular religious dogma, making it appropriate for people on a wide range of spiritual paths, or none.

This tale can also be especially meaningful and healing for women and teenage girls, supporting our deep knowing of the divine beauty at our core.

Also, by the way -- it's wonderful to read this story aloud to others -- and have them read it to you!

But the roots of this book go deeper than her professional path, into areas she shares less-often -- her precious lifelong relationship with the divine and its expression in the dimensional playground of nature. She says, "I am so deeply honored to be the carrier of this tale. I hope that it reminds you of your own core divinity, and brings you a taste of the sacred eternal."
