Three magical things from my book “The Midas Tree”

- Manna because it can be manipulate by thought into any other food that I wish to eat
- Seeds that contain the secrets of how to live on this desert island
Peacock because the feathers symbolize things that are important to me:
I just intuitively knew one day that I was ready to be a writer. I switched my meditation focus to clearing blocks to writing and to bringing through the information that I was to write about. During the night following this meditation, I was overtaken by an explosion of creativity. By the morning I had a full outline for the book. I guess the main inspiration is that as a meditation teacher, a book is a natural progression to get my message to a wider audience.
Apart from my book “The Midas Tree” – I can’t pick only one – there are three:-
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Marianne Williamson
