I was born and raised on a farm in the middle of NC (US). While I have always enjoyed stories and been drawn to the mystical, I spent a lot of years without managing the focus to bring the two interests together in any meaningful way. So what happened? Well … sooner or later the Powers That Be call a person to stand for the reason they came.
Personal lore is a dubious drink, for the flavor changes each time you bring it to your lips. Given enough aging–from my own experience–the product is more fiction than fact–but what fact is not ripe for becoming fiction?–I find that if I scrutinize any moment’s ramble of my past, the story often breaks down into a mix of dreams I’ve had, past conversation, and maybe something I read or heard. A person might say that something such as daydream is not real, and certainly not biographical. I would have to disagree. How can one come to an understanding of the tangible without the ethereal?–Personal myth.
In dream, I found myself looking next door, up at the 2nd story sleeping porch of an older home on a tree-lined Southern street. There I saw a circle of nine basinets. In each basinet rested a white swan, head tucked down. After taking a moment to consider my location and situation, I returned my attention to the porch to find the swans had become nine brightly dressed old women wearing wide-brimmed Sunday sun hats (my muses, of course), standing side by side, smiling down on me and gaily talking among themselves.
Dream is fever to the conscious mind, inducing illusion. Illusion? Or, enlightenment? They are one, except by perspective.
My lessons often come to me as spirit stories. The last one introduced itself to me as a metaphysical love story called Sacred Vow.
“Sacred Vow shares with us the magic of a loving commitment that spans time and the understanding that such a commitment needs to be held sacred.”
Sacred Vow is both a narrative and the means for the author to communicate a positive message about life and fully integrating the most into each moment. Highly recommended.–Midwest Book Review
Sacred Vow is first and foremost a metaphysical love story,
a tale of soul mates—twin flames—a journey toward our
one true love…in its infinite expressions…bringing together two individuals from disparate realities—but one spirit—to heal the rift in the Collective Consciousness.
Samhain has just passed, when the veil between worlds is its most sheer. We are nearing the season of the year where we traditionally enjoy many of our strongest celebrations of giving, of love, and of communion–Thanksgiving, Chanukah, The Hajj, Christmas, Kwanzaa.
In honor of the upcoming period of time so energetically significant to our culture and our psyche, I have decided to allow anyone interested to get a full length FREE PDF of Sacred Vow by going to www.cgwalters.com/spirit_story.htm and clicking on the link in the page to send me an email request. —it’s best that the requests come through this way so that the subject line has an identifier that will keep my email software from dumping it into the junk box.
The file is 1MB, so may pose a problem for some. If so, I will work something out.
From the moment Sacred Vow came into my life it has shown itself to be a spirit story…a living tale in progression that arises not merely from the author, but is a collective, interactive work of everyone that will become involved with it–past, present and future.
In such a story, cause and effect is anything by linear. The readers of the future are even now interacting with me in the past, to develop the avenue that allows Sacred Vow to come forth to the help heal the rift in the Collective Consciousness. As is the nature of spirit stories, it will say what we have the heart to hear…and that will change from time to time.
