There’s no doubt its super exciting being an author, holding you book in your hand for the first time feels amazing and when I think back to writing my first, Imperfectly Natural Woman, it was such a labour of love, I couldn’t have been prepared for what might come next. It was my ‘life’s work’ in that book, years of experience and knowledge about natural and organic living, sustainability and natural parenting, and it only came about because one woman, Caroline Lenton believed in me. She heard me on the radio talking about eco balls, natural detergents, organic soaps et al and asked me if I’d like to write a book, I said ‘Don’t be daft, I’m not a writer!’ but she explained what I needed was the passion and the rest would follow. We often joked that I was talking about coconut oil and kale long before they had their own publicists! With Caroline’s support and perseverance the book was a massive success and a number One Amazing best seller, (back in the day when that was tough to crack!) I think I proudly knocked Dan Brown and The Da Vinci Code off the top spot) so when Caroline came to me a mere 13 years on and asked if I wanted to have my own Janey Loves series within her new publishing house of course I said yes! Caroline knows all there is to know about publishing!
So here’s release number 2 in the Janey Loves series, I Talk to Angels by Beverley Densham, Bev also didn’t necessarily think of herself as a writer, but she had passion and enthusiasm by the bucket loads. She is a certified Angel Therapy® Practitioner and ‘Angel Expert’ with years of experience. I introduced her to Caroline and this is the result, a beautiful book published by Caroline Press.
I remember many years ago needing make a really difficult business decision, it required a huge amount of investment and commitment and was way out of my comfort zone. I genuinely didn’t know if it was the right thing for me, but there was time limit on the decision. I had a sleepless night, tossing and turning trying to make the decision, when suddenly I realised I should ask my Guardian Angel, I didn’t feel quite confident just ‘talking to an angel’ so I rang Bev and asked her if she would pick an angel card for me. I didn’t tell her anything about the programme, just that it was a massive decision, a huge amount of money, potentially a big risk for me, and it was basically a ‘Yes go for it’ or a ‘No, Don’t‘ answer I needed. Beverley asked me to give her five minutes while she meditated on the question, picked from an Oracle deck and connected with the angels. I waited wondering how I might interpret whatever the card picked represented, would a floaty flowery image mean yes or no? How would I be any clearer? A few minutes later Beverley rang me and said, ‘The Angels say its a big YES!‘ She pinged me a picture of the card she had picked and it was of a girl about to walk up the steps of an aircraft…..The business project and investment was called Flight. Yes really, I said yes and made my money back and far more within a few months. I really showed me the power of trusting the angels!
In more recent years as a Hay House author I have had conversations about the power of working with angels many times. I have interviewed leading angel authors Kyle Gray, Jenny Smedley and Lorna Byrne and must say when I had great angel experts on the line during a radio interview we were usually inundated with callers.
Why are all so fascinated by angels? I think we all like to imagine that we have a Guardian Angel (we do) and that there is a higher power and an angelic realm to help us achieve our dreams and keep us safe. In this book which is choc full of tips ideas inspiration and space for you to record your experiences, Bev above all encourages us all to connect with the angels. The book is part journal, but also offers guidance on how to use angel cards, visualizations to help us think more clearly and meditations for a morning routine. The foreword is written by Dame Kelly Holmes who says ‘I have always felt Angels around me. my Angels have lifted me at my most difficult times. There is also a fabulous quote from Patrick Swayze who said.”I’m trying to shut up and let my angels speak to me and tell me what I am supposed to do’
Above all this a little book of inspiration, gratitude and kindness. It couldn’t be more timely.
