Do you believe in Angels?

Jayna is an Archangel who decides to incarnate back to Earth into a human form when her life in heaven leaves her yearning for something she just can’t put her finger on. Her existence on the celestial plane is filled with infinite love and harmonious co-creation as she teaches souls to fly to heaven. In this heavenly existence, Jayna murmurs inspirations into the ears of the world’s greatest artists, while dead musicians and renowned artists help her on her way to her last and final life event.

Jayna really seems to grapple with her decision to ascend to the highest level of cosmic consciousness. Eventually, after a series of challenging lifetimes she realizes she is ready to attain the final rung in the wheel of life. Just as nothing in human life is ever perfect, and during her last final lifetime, Jayna meets Stephen, whom she falls madly in love with. Prepare to be swept off your feet!

As Jayna’s human life spins crazily out of control on a predestined course, a series of events propels her to question her true existence as Stephen’s love continues to pull her towards the earthly realm. Through it all, Jayna shares with us her multi-dimensional life filled with love, life after death, reincarnation, and rebirth. Her tale is a love story that will have you not only believing in angels but believing in the reality of everlasting love.

Recommendation:

Catching Feathers in the Wind is one of those rarely written phenomena that touch you and shake you to your very core. For me, it was a spiritual and emotional read that I could not put down. During the day when I was not reading, I found myself thinking about the philosophical elements in the story. The descriptions of heaven and angels filled my dreams. By the dawn of each new day, I awakened refreshed and renewed. Coincidence? I really don’t think so.

I also found the writing of the author, Diane Hall to be poetic and mesmerizing. At times, the prose took my breath away in explanations of divine and human existence that seemed so logical and concise I had to ask myself how it could be any other way.

This is a unique love story, one of which I have never read the likes of before. More than that, it is the story of true love and the many forms it imbues. Each of the characters experiences great sadness and despair but champions their way to find their true destiny. I connected with each of the characters in such a way, I just knew that I had met them before in another life.

By the end of the book, I felt like I had read the cosmic secrets of the universe. I felt like I had been given a special gift all tied up with a bow the color of sparkling stars. Ironically, I found this book on Facebook, part of a “free” campaign to introduce readers to the book. Wow! Was that ever my lucky day!

A visit to Diane Hall’s blog gives you a glimpse into the story with this excerpt: “Unseen Hands.” She also shares:

“An earlier edition of this book was very briefly known as Earth Angel, but has now undergone a huge revision and has been returned to its original title, of ‘Catching Feathers in the Wind.’ ~ A phrase used by one of the main characters, to describe the process of inspiration.”

I rarely give a five-star rating but when I do you know it has to be something spectacular! This is Diane Hall’s debut novel and I can’t wait to see what she writes next! If you are interested in spirituality and enjoy romance novels you will adore Catching Feathers in the Wind.

This is the kind of book that I will read over and over again knowing I will be touched by some different element each time I read it. I know one thing, your ideas about everlasting love will be forever changed!

Just for Today… Do Not Anger

Dove

So it’s that time of year once again! Yes, for many of us it’s nearly Christmas, and, as always, it’s time to reflect on all the things we have or haven’t achieved throughout the year. I have to say, this year has been pretty intense for me, on so many levels. However, like a lot of very intense years, 2015 has also given birth to some wonderful revelations, learning, creations and awakenings.

Once again, our evolution is accelerating at such a pace that we are sometimes not even the same person at the end of the week as the person we were on Monday! With personal and global shifts constantly asking us to decide who we are to be and what part we are to play in all these mind boggling earth changes and opportunities for personal transformation, it’s easy to get overwhelmed or caught up in over-thinking things.

One of my own personal awakenings in this incredible year of accelerated evolution has caused me to look very deeply inside, yet again, to find all the answers to everything in the world that seems wrong or broken. I have searched my own heart constantly, to find the violence inside me that has culminated in my existence in such a violent world. I have searched my heart and soul and received deep wisdom and love from my guides on various subjects. I have learned, firsthand, in a very deep and personal way that when there is no violence in me, there will be no violence around me.

In this way, I believe that we are all, each and every one of us, responsible for the current conflicts in our world, and that true change starts deep within each and every one of us. If the world is still seeking to heal separation through violent means, it must mean that, on a personal level, we haven’t yet healed all the violence within ourselves.

When I first began to write this blog, it was going to be a blatant commercial for a book I thought would make a perfect Christmas gift, but somehow, something else is taking over. Even as I write these words, some higher aspect of me is blossoming through into the communication, needing to be heard. And suddenly, something in my heart is telling me that on a day like today, any kind of commercialism feels like an act of violence.

Today, my stomach clenches at the thought of promoting books while there is so much pain all around me. So I stop, breathe and I remember my spirit. I remember that all I really need to do is to channel my spirit and all will be well. My Spirit knows that all is well. Always.

My mind doesn’t know how to solve the world’s problems. Sometimes it doesn’t even know  how to make even my own life work effectively! But my spirit does. My mind doesn’t know what love is, or how to be truly at peace, or that it just doesn’t even matter whether I’m right or wrong about anything I believe! Or whether anyone else is interested in reading about it! In fact, caring about being right or wrong, or thinking my views are important in any way, shape or form is precisely the kind of thinking that starts wars.

So instead, I am going to get out my yoga mat and become perfectly still and peaceful inside – get to know myself a little better. And no one else has to agree that that’s the right thing to do. Today my spirit is in charge, as tears flow freely from the love I have for humanity and my longing to heal the disgust I also feel, for our immaturity and emptiness.

Today, my only invitation to you is to come to know yourself too, so that one day we can meet each other, nicely, and like each other a bit.

Regarding books and other stuff like that, well, tomorrow, as they say.. is another day!

Happy holidays everyone! I love you!

‘Operation Soulmate’ Book Giveaway!

Operation Soulmate

First of all, a BIG thank you to everyone who downloaded, read, and even reviewed or rated, Catching Feathers in the Wind, during my recent giveaway last weekend. I so appreciate your time and insights, and it’s been so great to hear what you think of it! I’m even more happy to discover that the people who have kindly left reviews so far, seem to have experienced the same inspirational and loving message that I experienced while allowing my beautiful angels and guides to influence and inspire the writing process.

So, I’m very excited about my next giveaway, this Friday and Saturday, September 18th and 19th! Here’s a quick summary of Operation Soulmate. I think you’re going to enjoy this one!! Happy reading! 

Operation Soulmate

When psychic medium and semi-recluse, Geraldine Stanley, realises that she’s still single just three months before her thirtieth birthday, she agrees to allow her flatmate, top relationship coach, Ben Wright, to coach her into meeting the man of her dreams. She’s sure that with his much talked about skills as the country’s most celebrated love-coach, he’ll effortlessly guide her into the perfect love-match. But Ben has never seen a twin-flame checklist before, and Geraldine is unwilling to settle for anything less than the other half of her soul. Geraldine is quickly caught up in a whirlwind of supervised dating assignments, but only her past life regression therapist, a restless ghost, and a collection of psychic friends know the real reason she has never found ‘the one’.

A metaphysical rollercoaster ride, full of modern humour, spiritual teaching, and philosophical questioning. 

Finally, of course, once again, would really appreciate some reviews! Reviews help to make books more visible and help potential readers to decide whether or not to take a chance on reading them. I am so determined to devote more time to writing now, and to reaching more people with these Divine messages. So all input is always greatly valued and appreciated. However, please feel free to download and enjoy with no obligation, if you’re not keen on writing reviews. No pressure… No.. really…

:))

‘Catching Feathers in the Wind,’ Book Giveaway!

Well, I’ve finally managed to complete my goal of getting six books out this year, some new and some revisions of earlier work, and now the real work begins: the job of promoting my precious babies and letting the rest of the world know where to find them!

It’s such an odd thing, after such a long and largely reclusive undertaking, to suddenly wrench back the curtains on the deliciously private world of the writer and shout “Hey world, here I am” like the very best of Vaudeville dames, insisting that the world should “get ready,” for me now, and that no one should even think of raining on my parade. When all I really want to do is pat myself on the back for a job well done, eat cake, and start writing again.

However, I can now definitely feel a powerful call back out into the world, and with the approaching new moon eclipse in Virgo, it might well be time to embrace the expansion that Jupiter is certain to bring into the world of even the most diligently focussed Virgo. So, yay!!! Hey world!! Here they are!! I hope you enjoy them!!

Here’s something I hope you’ll really enjoy!! My first ever novel, Catching Feathers in the Wind, (briefly titled Earth Angel) will be completely free on September 10th, 11th and 12th, so please download away if you’d like a free read! And please tell all your friends about the impending freebie. Of course, some of you will also know how important reviews are in bringing books to a wider audience, and I would so appreciate any input you feel able to give. But most importantly, I hope you enjoy the book, and allow it to restore your faith in the beautiful world we are creating and the angels who are constantly watching over our current transition.

Look out for reminders about tomorrow’s book giveaway, on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, throughout the weekend, or click here on Thursday, Friday or Saturday!

Love and Gratitude, Diane

The Little Book of Daily Guidance: Out in July!

The Little BooThe Little Book of Daily Guidance Coverk of Daily Guidance is due out in July, and I am so excited about this! If you’ve been receiving my daily messages through my newsletter or occasionally finding them on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter, you’ll understand why! It has made me so happy to write and share these messages in recent months, and I’ve been even more happy to discover that they are slowly reaching more people and seem to be making a difference. These are incredible times we’re living in, and in these times of awakening and constant, rapid evolution, it’s such a privilege for me to be able to offer this little book, as a way of allowing the wisdom and guidance that comes through, from my guides, to be with you throughout each day.

The book contains messages that came partially through me and partially from me, as my guides and I explored ways of remaining hopeful, productive and positive during times when, more than ever before, we are all being asked to live at a higher level of alignment with our truest creative truth, open our hearts to love, and allow our love to transform the world we live in. The book is filled with the usual inspirational turns of phrase that come lovingly from the influence of the precious guides, angels and masters I feel so blessed to have around me, but in small bite sized pieces – daily messages to keep us all in a loving, inspired and hopeful vibration.

We have also explored, from a 5th dimensional perspective, some of the divination and healing systems we love. There are influences from the I Ching, the tarot, shamanism; angelic wisdom and healing; literature; The Bible, and archetypal impressions from the collective unconscious that just seem to be eternally and universally hovering on the periphery of consciousness.

The writing of this book has been an awakening within in itself! I hope it will do the same for you, if this is your higher will, and I hope you’ll love reading it as much as I have loved receiving and honing it.

Thanks for reading!
