Greetings Dear Readers,

I hope each and every one of you is well today and if you are not feeling so great, I hope you will be soon. Namaste!

This blog edition is a little on the quiet side because as I am sure you will appreciate; writing first. My focus has been very much with my next novel, Under An Ancient Name. I’m not giving away too much, except that it is set in ancient and 21st century Egypt. Keep an eye on the ‘UAAN’ tab for more info.

Ben and Louis

Catharine’s husband, freelance writer, practising Wiccan and all-round nice guy is not the character emerging from the early chapters of Beyond The Pyre. However, events move along rapidly and push him into a limelight he accepts with ease considering the blows he is dealt.

His spiritual gifts help him to free the mind of a lost soul who thanks him by leading him to Louis a 13th Century nobleman who is strongly opposed to the Cathar crusades. Louis prefers sword to pen and together but by no means the same, he and Ben have essential parts to play in Beyond The Pyre. If you are interested, mid-twenties, both are considered good looking, Ben has blond hair, blue eyes, Louis almost black hair, dark brown eyes, average height, strong build.

As you might imagine, there is a rather serious amount of writing out on the WWW about reincarnation, life after death and everything in and around so my research was considerable. See what you think of the following couple of paragraphs and I would love to hear your thoughts.

In modern times there has been plenty of research into the claims of people who say they have remembered their previous lives. One of the best known cases concerns Shanti Devi, born in Delhi in 1926. At the age of seven she told her mother that she had been alive before, in a town called Muttra. Over the next two years her recall of events increased until she was telling her parents about her previous husband, their house, and her three children. At the age of nine a complete stranger came to the door to discuss business with her father and Shanti claimed she recognised him as her husband’s cousin from her previous life.

To the astonishment of everyone the man did live in Muttra and agreed that his cousin’s wife, Ludgi, had died ten years earlier. When the husband came to visit her, Shanti recognised him immediately and flung herself into his arms. When she was taken to Muttra, she was able to direct the carriage to Ludgi’s house and identified her father-in-law sitting in front of it. She also recognised her two eldest children, but not the youngest, whose birth had cost Ludgi her life.

There is a growing wealth of cases like Shanti’s that suggest reincarnation and many people are exploring ways to unlock their own lost memories. Some people have spontaneous recall but there are also professional people who will help people unlock their hidden memories. Often, ‘Past Life Therapists’ use deep relaxation sessions or hypnotic techniques to guide their client back into time. Firstly they encourage them to recall events in this life and then back into early childhood. A point comes when they can ask the subject to look to the time before their birth and recall what they see and feel. Some describe a period between lives where they live in a heavenly afterlife but many go straight to memories of past lives.

Yes, it’s true! I have told you very little about Ben and Louis. By sharing a small piece of research from one of my sources, I have given a few clues about what connected them. Is that me getting off the hook?


I prefer not to endorse programs and courses unless I have direct experience. This one I have experience of and highly recommend the ‘Free Program’ offer. I think it’s essential as a writer to consider as many alternatives to the norm as possible. It expands thinking and broadens content. Through PgP I have found something that resonates for me personally and have gone beyond the Free Program.

Good people are heart driven evolutionaries transforming the world through the power of love. They care for themselves, their families, communities and the entire planet, nourishing and supporting life everywhere.

If you are rich in mindfulness, love, creativity, compassion and all that makes a person wealthy, and feel that it is time to also increase your financial well-being, please consider joining the Prosperity for Good People program. You can try it out for free!


Apps That Help

I tested an app today that might help with the dreaded writers’ block. This is worth a look, the process is colourful and it does get you thinking about what may be causing the blockage. OK, I was testing so working through perhaps a little more quickly than I might in a time of need; I finished in about five minutes. You need to give them an email address to sign up and they do sell sets of flash cards but not in your face. This is an App that helps.
