Big news people – I’ve been published in the new Louise Hay book, Modern-Day Miracles: Miraculous Moments and Extraordinary Stories from People All Over the World Whose Lives Have Been Touched by Louise L. Hay.

This very exciting news came about a month ago, but there’s been a lot going on in my life (will fill you in next post), so  haven’t had a chance to tell you all until now.

The book has writings from Louise as well as a collection of personal stories from people around the world whose lives have been transformed or taken on new meaning since working with Louise Hay’s teachings. My excerpt is in the Transforming Old Beliefs chapter.

If you ever saw the blog post I wrote on Louise Hay for Jenny Mannion’s Heroes of Healing group writing project, you’ll know Louise is the closest thing I have to a guru. Nineteen years ago her book,  You Can Heal Your Life changed the way I looked at myself, my relationships and my future and set me on a path of healing and self discovery. you-can-heal-your-lifeThis makes it all the more special and fitting that the first book I am ever published in is one of hers.

Modern-Day Miracles is for sale at Amazon and all good book stores in the USA. It will be released in Australia in August, I believe. I’m not sure about other countries.

This is the achievement of a major goal for me and I am very thankful. It may not be my own novel on a shelf yet, but to be selected by Louise Hay for her new book is a huge honour. She is an icon of the self-help movement – a woman who has sold over 50 million books – and the founder of an international publishing house. And she chose me!!!!!!

I also have to send out a big thank you to my friend, Jennifer Mannion. Jenny is the one who told me about this publishing opportunity and suggested I submit something. Thanks for your encouragement Jenny. It wouldn’t have happened without you. xxx

I am truly late to the party here…what a celebration, but never too late to purchase a book with a friend enclosed and shared…
Oh those journeys of our living and healing – powerful stuff indeed.

Thank you for dropping in on the celebration of Barbara as a fine teacher…Louise Hay is a guru of living life and Barbara may just be the most gracious – clear guru of how to blog…What a combination!
