By the end of The Angel Wears Prana, my eyes were open to the existence of me and my surroundings. It made me think about different experiences and life situations in another light. I would definitely recommend this book, most especially to those starting out on their spiritual journey.

"Melissa recounts not only how she pushed through extreme lows and adversity, but how to stop the cycle of poor health through introspective investigation. She worked through physical, mental, and social hardships with actions that were built on discovering a spiritual link to why her life was on the path it was and growing beyond it. Readers can also discover how to take those first hard steps into taking control of their path through understanding their own personal purpose."
"If you've ever wondered how life's happenings shape and mold who we become or rather who we are meant to be....this is the read for you. Melissa takes you on a journey of personal, touching revelations and applies them to a series of thought provoking life choices we all encounter. Here's a perfect example, which as a pastry chef I relate to exactly... When life hands you lemons, make lemon meringue pie!"
"In sharing personal stories, Melissa invites the reader to experience her journey of self evolution and discovery'by questioning daily norms, being open to intuition and finding confidence to follow through with action."
Princess & Clown
Grandma H's daughter, my aunt, had a horse, and my sister and I went to the barn on the weekends to ride it. When I was old enough, I dressed up as an Arabian princess to be in a show atop a beautiful white horse at the state fair. This was incredibly exciting, even for a shy, hesitant girl. My aunt would ride her horse in local parades and my Grandma H. and I dressed up like clowns and were the shit shovelers to support her in her love for horses.
Knock on wood
When I was five years old, I was rollerskating in our unfinished basement. Unsurprisingly, I was skating too fast and stopped myself against a heavy wooden door. I had a broken left wrist for several weeks because we waited so long to see a doctor. Mom finally took me in when I couldn't open the front door and I sat there ringing the doorbell until she had to get up and let me in. I recall threatening to hit my sister with the cast. Beautiful childhood memories make me smile.
Nails and bowling shoes
I went to high school during the day and went to cosmetology school at night and on Saturdays. It was not fancy. The whole operation was run in an old bowling alley. The classroom was the area behind the lanes. Nail supply checkout was located at the desk where they used to hand out the bowling shoes.
The worst part
The worst part was that my husband gave up on me. He was going through his own issues. I had asked him many, many times to work on himself and improve behaviours for himself and all of us ... I laid on the floor, cried, and told him that he was going to lose his house and his family. He told me to shut up, stop crying, and walked right past me. I accepted that he was not going to change and solidified things in my mind that I was going to get a divorce.
From religion to spirituality
I believe that we are evolving past religion into new levels of spirituality. Our minds and perception are different and we need new ways of seeing past what is obvious to our eyes. We are being encouraged to look within for answers instead of using other people to externally meet our needs. We need new ways of learning spirituality.
