The only way to remove the darkness is to illuminate it, to shine the spotlight in the darkest corner, and to open our eyes wide to observe it (whatever "it" is) with an absence of fear. Inevitably, each dim, earthly adventure brings the balance of light. The divine laws of nature and of karma ensure that there must be the "yang" with the "yin." Dissecting and breaking down to a microscopic level to fully examine even the most nefarious side of life is the way to bring light to the shadows we dread.

From the Back Cover:

This is a book about Death. It is also a book about Life. It is a book about discovering the blessings in even the most painful episodes of life, those occurrences that explode our paradigms, detonate our sense of security, leave us vulnerable as a susceptible open wound, and effectively demand that we take stock of life, that we experience our most honestly authentic selves. Most importantly, this is a book about Love.

This book is written for anyone who has questioned the reasons for emotional sufferings under any conditions, for those who believe in a "bigger picture" than just that which meets our often-closed eyes and our overly cynical hearts. It is written for those who have experiences of trauma, of perceived loss and separation brought by life circumstances, and especially those brought by the Angel of Death. It is written for those seeking the profound wisdom of his or her own life lessons -however tragic or rewarding the events, for those that believe there must be a gift in every heartbreak, a gem in every tear shed. It is written for anyone believing in, or at least fanning a slight curiosity about the cosmic magic of synchronistic events, of those coincidences and signs that happen frequently, and though perhaps mildly observed, are too often, unacknowledged, unappreciated, and unrecognized.

Clearly, this book is written as the catalyst, as the greatest tool in mending the author's own deep, raw gashes inflicted by life circumstances. By her own admission, the writing served to bring her back to sanity after the pain of tremendous loss. It is written for anyone openly choosing to come along on the journey of miracles, through the writer's very personal, surprisingly candid, and continuously nurturing healing processes of discoveries, and of building blocks for future fascinating discoveries. This is a 'must read' for anyone with enough bravery and interest to seek the blessings in their own mire. It is written from the heart, from the author's heart to yours. And, it is not for everyone.

About the Author:

Deelstra worked for ten years for The Department of Human Services as a counselor to the impoverished until the trying position led her to open a holistic gift store. There, Deelstra enjoyed the fruits of her labors until, after the death of her son, she chose to follow her heart to southern California. A dynamic, avant-garde woman, Deelstra has some surprising experiences: as a massage therapist, Teamster truck driver, bartender, telephone repairperson, counselor, decorator/stager, Realtor, and author. Currently, she is working on a series of children's books, and on an 'under-wraps' writing project. This is her first non-fiction work.
