As with The Secret enhancing, growing, creating a stronger faith in me, reading Still Writing by Dani Shapiro, last month lit a fire under me, reinvigorated the passion I have for writing.  At one point before discovering Law of Attraction, (LoA) I never would have thought my faith could grow any stronger.


I found out differently.  I discovered that LoA is simply another path to spirit.


There had been a time when writing burned out for me where I  could no longer feel the itch.  Thankfully I recovered and the fire is once again stoaked.  After finishing Ms Shapiro’s book last month I’ve found the flame is now burning brighter than it has in many years.


I write for about two hours every evening and I’ve discovered once again my prime writing time is after dinner say from six pm to eight pm; just as I did in my youth.  I’ve also established a routine where my two gifts no longer conflict with each other.  Where previously I couldn’t write and photograph during the same time in my life which the column The Itch does a fine job of explaining.  I’m now at a point in my life where both gifts are able to coexist.  Kinda odd to say that as this is a new experience for me.  I will ride the wave as long as I can.


Writing started out as my first gift.  I actually recall being the fourth grade living in Branford Connecticut on Jefferson and having a Top Secret Book.


What appeared in this book?
The beginnings of my foray into short story writing.
One particular story I recall is one called:
Green Island


This story about a fictional island off the Connecticut coast housed a secret location where UFOs came and went.  So see, even in my youth I wrote science fiction.


Surprisingly, science fiction and fantasy is what drew me away from writing in the 2000s.  I lost interest in everything I’d been working on.  But then you can read about that in The Itch.


My flame is burning brightly again, brighter than it has in years; and as with Rhonda Byrne’s, The Secret, I have another outside source for strengthening my writer muscle.  Thanks goes to Dani Shapiro’s Still Writing.


Have you found a helping hand to strengthen one of your gifts?


Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.



Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;


We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.
