It is a powerful collection of channelled texts, personal stories and practical wisdoms created to show that you are enough within yourself. FLY demonstrates that everything you need is already present. That the love you give yourself is infinitely more powerful and healing to your spirit than anything to be sought from outside. It is a book written, in beauty, by a woman who is real and who creates a mirror to show you your true reflection. Who shows you how to open your eyes to love- love ‘first’ for yourself and then for all beings.Each chapter is prefaced with a mystical text called a ‘song’, such as ‘Child Song’ or ‘Earth Song’. These songs evolved over a period of time and were not consciously written- I have simply put pen to paper and they appeared. I believe they burn through differences and speak directly to women everywhere. I believe this is the deepest and truest part of me speaking in love- my love to myself and my love to all women. Each song brings a wisdom that is essential for the modern woman.Each chapter also offers a personal story that echoes the song’s wisdoms and gives you an insight into who I am and the journey that I have taken to reach you. The final section is all about you. I have extracted from the songs, personal stories and practical wisdoms to guide you in your twenty-first-century life.In FLY I introduce terms such as ‘a woman’s honour’, ‘divine feminine’ and ‘a woman’s wildness’. These terms bear no religious connotations and are simply words to evoke an ancient female face. A face long forgotten and lost to us women. A woman’s wildness is a woman’s authenticity which comes when a woman is allowed to be congruently herself- when she no longer plays the role that society subscribes to her or of what she ‘thinks’ she should be but instead becomes truly who she ‘is’. Truly compassionate and truly strong! Divine and wild as she has always been in her essence.When I say ‘divine feminine’ I refer to the part of us that is real, alive and courageous. A free part that is totally responsible to the world because it is first totally responsible to self. I see this trait as to be authenticity or ‘congruency’ as used in person-centred therapy. I see congruency to be a step towards the divine, because I see our true being to be part of the divine.I also refer to a ‘woman’s honour’. ‘A woman’s honour’ is simply a woman’s decision to realise her worth and give her heart where it is deserved and safe. This is in relation to our position within the world and our conduct within our relationships. For we are holy when we discover who we are and when we live that fearlessly. We are the divine feminine, the creators of the holy, we have given birth to humanity and for too long we have undervalued ourselves. As it is within, so it is without. So men and the world have failed to see our glory and who we are! We women have the right to decide and define what female freedom means. It is time for the veils to be discarded and for the reclaiming of an ancient feminine power. The power of honour and true freedom.Fly has come to usher in a paradigm shift. A shift for which I believe women have been waiting for, for too long. After the rain comes the sun. Here in this book, after feminism, comes the divine feminine. You are she. And I am she. This book shows you how to reach her through the pathways of your mind. ‘All that we are is the result of what we have thought,’ Buddha.
