Art Imitates Life, Then Life Imitates Art: My Water Signs Happy Ending

Art Imitates Life, Then Life Imitates Art: My Water Signs Happy Ending

Ten years ago, I started writing my first novel Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal, after a visit with a psychic unleashed suppressed memories of my first and only love. To catch up on the back story behind the book, click on the Water Signs category of the blog.

In what I can only describe as the most magical moment of my life, two weeks ago I reconnected with the real life “Ken” in person. When I saw his smiling face at the door, my nervousness and apprehension melted way, replaced by a single, comforting thought: “I’m home.” Even though I’d always known in my heart and soul we were meant to be together, the human part of me felt a twinge of doubt as I waited for him to arrive; after all, we hadn’t seen each other in over 20 years.

But God’s timing is always perfect.

The second I laid eyes on him, I realized the happy ending I’d written a decade ago was unfolding according to a divine plan. He and I share an undeniable soul connection that sustained us through two decades of physical separation and has only grown stronger over time. Now that the reunion I fictionalized in the pages of Water Signs has materialized in the physical world, it is even more beautiful than anything I’d written back in 2008. My heart is bursting with love, joy, and gratitude…and at the same time, I’m filled with a peacefulness I’ve never experienced before. This man is my twin flame, my soul mate, my bashert. Every morning, I wake up and thank God he has returned to me, though sometimes I still have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming.

As a longtime student of spiritual laws, including the Law of Attraction, and a member of Tasha Chen’s Science of Getting Rich Academy community, I realize now that by writing my love story and happy ending, I brought it into manifestation, with the help of God Almighty. I also know that my experience is a testament to trusting the process and His ingenious ways and sure methods…even when appearances are bleak and people who love you tell you to move on for your own sake. No matter how many times I temporarily lost hope or felt sad or missed him with an indescribable intensity, I always believed we’d find our way back to each other. And thanks to Tasha, I learned how to stay alert to “evidence,” or signs along the way.

In the next few months, I plan to release and launch a third edition of the book (once I’ve fulfilled some client obligations and projects) with an updated introduction, where I’ll include photos of the couple who inspired the characters of Ken and Madeline. For now, I’m living fully in the present moment, enjoying every second of time he and I have to spend together.

To the Captain of My Heart, I’ll love you forever and I continually thank my God for you.

Your Book Your Brand Your Business with Author Richard Maddox

Tune in on Monday, March 19 for Your Book Your Brand Your Business with Author Richard Maddox. The one-time Writestream radio guest and author of Remembering Eternity joins me to discuss his latest release, Enlightened Relations: The Life in a Day ~ A Couple Enjoys Spiritual Enlightenment Together, available in Kindle on Amazon.com. 

From the book description:

An ordinary day. An extraordinary couple. The path of Enlightenment can be walked side by side, on the earth.

Even an Enlightened couple can share intimate moments. While the man and woman walk through a farmer’s market and dance at a concert beneath the stars, they live in Pure Consciousness. To find their Enlightenment, they didn’t need to abandon their normal lives and hike to the top of a mountain. They found a way to be themselves while attaining the highest state of human consciousness…

Take a look at a day in the life of a couple that changes everyone around them for the better. Where they go, miracles happen. As they spread Enlightenment throughout the world, each person they touch feels inspired to advance their own evolution. This is their story…

“Enlightened Relations” is a spiritual novel that seeks to dismiss the common misconception that Enlightenment can only be achieved through isolation and non-bodily states. If you like slice-of-life stories, soaring and elegant prose, and the idea of seeking a higher purpose, then you’ll love Richard Maddox’s motivational story.

Your Book Your Brand Your Business with Author Stanley Gray

Please tune in to Your Book Your Brand Your Business with Author Stanley Gray on Monday, February 12 at 5 PM Eastern on W4CY.com. Gray will discuss his book, Traits of Darkness: An Epic Fantasy (Gems of Paradise: Book One):

Author Stanley Gray.

An ailing king on the small island of Norteras besieged by threats must fight to save not only the land he loves, but also himself and his legacy, from destruction at the hands of his cruel son. Amidst assassinations and intrigue, prophecies of a messianic dragon have united the religious orders for the first time in thousands of harvests in opposition to the throne. As the stakes grow higher and the odds become increasingly more bleak, a Halfling dragon hunter emerges to lend the king a lifeline. But, this aid comes with a price: the king must help find this elusive dragon.

Complicating matters is the fact that the hunted is no ordinary dragon. He is, in fact, one of the last of the remaining golds, and he has fled his ancestral homelands for the sake of his son. Disguised as humans, the dragon, as well as his wife and wyrm, live as a humble mining family in a remote region of Norteras, adjacent to the mountains.

As the king begins a purge, seeing enemies in every shadow, the last of the golds grows weary of the constant threat of raids from the monsters hiding by the alpine passes, emerging irregularly to terrorize the villages. Teaming up with a raven and a crude foreigner, the dragon must fight as a human to save his family.
Will the king save Norteras? Will the king become the tyrant he believed his son to be? Will the dragon save his family, or be discovered by the powerful forces moving against it under cover of darkness?
