As you finish up your holiday shopping, the Editors recommend adding one (or more!) of our fabulous titles to your list.
British poet Rachel Finch is the powerhouse behind the Bruised But Not Broken community on Facebook, which provides support and healing for trauma survivors. She is a symbol of hope and light throughout the world. She returns a year after the release of her 5-star debut A Sparrow Stirs its Wings with her second book, Conversations With My Higher Self.
Conversations With My Higher Self recounts Finch’s personal experience with a near death, out-of-body life-changing event during the delivery of her eldest daughter. Written in beautiful and mesmerizing verse, Conversations With My Higher Self is a provocative book. Honest, spiritual, and cathartic, Finch gives us a tantalizing glimpse of what is on the other side- transformation, light and love.
“I am outside of myself,
more whole without shape and
I exist as a spectra of light,
nebula shining bright,
I am matter
“This book is a book like none you’ve read before and that alone is a powerful testament to Finch’s artistic brilliance. She executes her near-death and resurrection experiences in such a way as to bring the reader with her to this incredible other-world. As Finch evolves, I felt myself evolving. “She is not quiet, the evolving is an unfolding and I am origami in the wind.” CWMHS has the power to change you, the reader, to change your mindset and see yourself and your life in an entirely different light. This book is a must-have for all lovers of poetry and anyone who has had or who has known someone with a near-death and out-of-body experience.”
-Melody Lee, author of Moon Gypsy, and Season of the Sorceress
“Conversations With My Higher Self is mesmerizing, breathtaking, poignant, and painful, it is every single beautiful and tragic thing that turns simple poetry into something timeless.”
-Nicole Lyons, The Lithium Chronicles: Volume One and Volume Two
Conversations With My Higher Self is available for purchase at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Bookshop.org, IndieBound, Chapters/Indigo, Waterstones, Book Depository, and from other major online retailers.
