The Angel Wears Prana

The Journey of a Healer

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.

What Readers Are Saying about The Angel Wears Prana

Excerpts From This Book

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.

The Priceless Benefits of Positive Emotion

There are many priceless benefits of positive thinking. When we live in the place of joy, peace and love, our world is happier, brighter and full of desired experiences.

But what happens when something less desirable happens? Many advise us to reframe, focus on the positive or find the silver lining. These are helpful tactics, but there is another perspective to embrace. Our world is one of duality and we cannot fully embrace the positive without the flip side. We would never know joy without sorrow or contentment without dissatisfaction.

We are taught from an early age to stop crying, ignore ridicule and speak kind words. These messages tell us that our feelings are not allowed and appreciated, and we often unknowingly pull them in and shove them down where they cannot be seen.

We should open our minds to the value of feeling all of our emotions.When you feel a less-desirable emotion like shame, guilt, sadness or distrust, sit in the feeling. Be brave. Let the emotion wash over you and fully feel it. It is understandable that we would want the uncomfortable haze to go away as soon as possible, but we have these feelings for a reason.They are messages with lessons. They are teaching us about our conscience and the world around us. They teach us empathy.

When we learn our personal stance, we often raise our standards of thought and behavior towards ourselves and others. This can also be described as raising our consciousness.

Let’s use shame as an example. If we feel shame, we are feeling we have behaved in a way that is not acceptable. This is our chance to reevaluate the situation and decide if we will continue this particular behavior or if we feel the other person in the situation should have behaved in a different manner. This feeling will come up again throughout our lives until we have resolved it or learned its meaning in our lives. Our world would be much different if, instead of someone telling us, “You should be ashamed”, we asked ourselves, “Why do I feel shame”?

Often these undesirable feelings will linger for days, weeks or longer. The reason for this is that our conscious and subconscious mind are processing the information in an attempt to resolve it. Some people process on their own, some people talk with friends or family, and others discuss the feelings with a professional. Every journey to navigate emotions is unique.

It is easy to get stuck in a cycle of negative emotions, but if we make the effort to avoid blame, understand, learn and grow from less-desirable emotions, in the long run, our positive emotions will be stronger and more sustainable. This is of benefit to ourselves and those around us. My advice is to put effort into positivity while embracing the lesson and meaning of the less-desirable feelings.

Suggested interview questions

What was an early experience where you learned that language had power?
I innocently asked my grandmother why she smoked cigarettes and she became angry at me. I was confused and I was made to feel shame.

As a writer, what would you choose as your spirit animal?
A woodpecker. The spiritual significance of a woodpecker is an attention-grabber who shakes up awareness.The symbolic meaning indicates a return to our roots, or having trust in our basic (gut) feelings.

Do you view writing as a kind of spiritual practice?
Yes. Writing is a way to use my spiritual gifts to teach, encourage and inspire others.

What is your favorite childhood book?
The Monster at the End of this Book by Jon Stone. I loved the anticipation and the use of emotion.

What has influenced you the most as a writer?
My lifetime love of reading showed me that I could speed read. My college education taught me that I was a natural at writing. I did not expect to become an author. The idea was intuitively presented to me.

What, in your opinion, are the most important elements of good writing?
I feel honesty and creativity make my work unique. I am fascinated by authors who can write an entire (children’s) book that rhymes.

What was your favorite part, and your least favorite part, of the publishing journey?
My favorite parts were incorporating humor in the story and the accomplishment of all of the pieces coming together. The editing process was incredibly frustrating for me.

Do you have a library membership?
Yes. I would like to know how many books I have checked out of Hennepin County Libraries over the course of my lifetime. My guess is in the thousands.

How did you come up with the title of your book?
The title of my book came to me in a flash of intuition and because it has a humorous and spiritual aspect, I decided it was perfect.
