For those of you that know me, you know I love Nature! It is for that reason I am so excited to announce the release of the new book, NATURE: Divine Experiences with Trees, Plants, Stones and Landscapes featuring Ana Maria Vasquez, a multi-sensory animal and nature intuitive, and a shamanic practitioner, and 28 other contributing authors. This is the third book within the Common Sentience Series from Sacred Stories Publishing.
My story, The Tale of Two Trees, explores my relationship with two trees and the humor and tolerance they had to share with me. One a statuesque Western Redcedar and the other a time-tested Douglas Fir. To say I got yelled at by one of these trees would be completely accurate! Who knew a tree had a tolerance limit? Thankfully, the fir had a quieter demeanor. “So much is owed to these wonderful teachers, for they opened my heart and soul to the unlimited possibilities around us. It may seem odd that a tree can be lonely or can have a tolerance limit, but what may be odd to one is just another wondrous day in this magical world we call Life for those that truly connect with the natural world.”ABOUT THE BOOK
What makes this book uncommon and truly special is it shares spiritual wisdom on the ancient wisdom of Nature and true, personal stories of people who have experienced the magic, messages, and healing Nature shares.
In Part One: Understanding the Natural World Ana Maria Vasquez shares how the mystical takes form in Nature and how Nature speaks to us.
In Part Two: Divine Experiences with Trees, Plants, Stones and Landscapes read and revel as our sacred storytellers share their personal experiences with nature, the greatest teacher of all, including:
- healing joy received from a plum tree.
- rocks that transmute a woman’s fear into peace.
- loving messages from nature allowing a sister to let her beloved brother go.
- a sentinel tree witnessing a granddaughters’ short life.
- tree spirits that lift a man’s heart and allow lightness and magic into his life.
- a water spirit that requests collaboration for healing of the waters.
In Part Three: Deepening Your Connection with Nature Ana Maria Vasquez encourages you to ‘take it into your listening’ and open to the sentient world you are a part of. Recognize you are nature and why it’s important to have reverence, check your vibe, and ask permission to begin co-creating with the natural world.
If you are looking to deepen your connection with nature and the beings that surround us on a daily basis, this is the book for you and it can be purchased at my new website karenbshea.com or wherever books are sold.
May the wonders of nature inspire you each and every day!
