One Path, Many Lights invites readers into 12 months of your life to encourage people to persevere. Why was this an important book for you to write?
This book was an important book to write to inspire my readers going through difficult times to know that although life can be challenging, they will survive it, learn from it and even thrive. It was vital for me to be transparent, sharing my vulnerability about my own personal life, so they know they’re not alone, and will be encouraged to move forward.
You share your experiences as both a healer and counsellor. What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?
Anxiety, along with patterns of behaviour that keep us in the past, and how they can become a muddy stream that taints, although unconsciously, our present and future happiness. Also, spirituality and knowing there is far more to our universe, and us, and how this knowledge can support, guide and influence our path.
What is a common misconception you find people have about adversity and spiritual guidance?
Is that adversity is an affliction to thwart our path. When it can be a time of learning, understanding and a giver of wisdom.
A misconception about spiritual guidance is it’s something you seek outside of yourself when it’s freely available for all to access within. One doesn’t need to be alternative or gifted to access spiritual guidance for we all have innate inner wisdom waiting for us to tap into it.
What is the next book that you are writing and when will it be available?
I’m currently writing two books, one that is non-fiction about my spiritual journey, awakenings, and hardships experienced while travelling to many places throughout the world based on a dream or vision. The other book is a fantasy novel, which I’m excited for as the characters seemed to jump onto my page, wishing to participate in the writing of the book. I’m planning to finish one of these, if not both, by the end of 2020.
One Path, Many Lights takes you on the roller-coaster ride of twelve months in the life of author, counsellor, hypnotherapist and Reiki Master Teacher, Maria Lacey. By sharing her story Maria has one aim; to encourage you to recognise that change, adversity and confusion can empower you to move forward in your life.
Experience the wonder of spiritual visions after the Chilean earthquake, the grounding fears and anxieties of everyday life, including a life-threatening rush to hospital, surgery a few months later and the personal struggle with anxiety, the ego-self and the mirrored reflection of those around her. Inevitably, adversities from Maria’s earlier life cannot be ignored in her striving to understand her present journey.
As a healer and counsellor Maria meets with a diverse range of clients from young women in their 20’s to men in transition to retirement, as well as her beautiful pregnant mums. Maria finds herself sitting and writing in her art room, her place of peace and meditation, unlocking her inner sight through channeling information from the Guardians of the Light. There are many questions, some answers, and thought-provoking moments.
One Path, Many Lights explores the author’s truth as she exposes her innermost fears, struggles and resistance to understanding herself. This enlightening story will give you hope and comfort in knowing that you are not alone in your own personal struggles.
