When writing about one of the main characters (Connie Stone) in Bewitched by Atlantis: The Butterfly Mask – an amazing idea flowed in. I had trouble containing my excitement as I wrote about it. Here it is!
Use these divination tools to assist you in planning your novel.
Use Oracle, Tarot or regular playing cards to create characters and scenes
Create card layouts (an example layout for each card placement – see diagram below)
Create character sheets to fill in
Shuffle the cards and choose according to your template(s)
Write down or record via audio/video what you have discovered
Repeat as many times as you like
Note: As you do this, more questions will arise that you will want answers to. For example, I may have chosen a card that shows me that my character has addiction issues. I then want to know the cause of the issue. The next card chosen reveals the core issue as abandonment.
This is a hot topic if you ask me. “Whose life are you living?” We seem to be influenced by others or society. Short discussion here on what I think about it.
In the podcast, I mention that I learned that we cut the invisible umbilical cord with our parents (mainly our mothers) when we are about 28 years old on average) That is when people start feeling more like adults and not needing permission from others when making decisions. I thought I learned this in University but Dr. Christiane Northrup’s name is popping into my mind right now as relevant here too.
It was neat talking about this topic as it also made me think of what I actually learned at University. One thing for sure was how to understand the questions you were being asked. Really taking the time to look at a question and make sure what was being asked was crystal clear and not what I thought the question was at quick glance.
Book Highlight – Order this book and then get involved in the series. You have a chance to receive an Ipad Mini if your chapter/character submission is accepted.
NY Times Best Selling Author Peggy McColl wrote the forward and has this to say ~ “This is a fast paced novel for a reader looking for entertainment. Be prepared to fall in love with the characters and feel joy, suspense, sadness and excitement all in one sitting.”
Our experiences in life bring up questions to be answered.
Why did I know that?
What am I to do with that information?
What does it all mean?
In 1998, my grandfather passed away and I knew the exact date of his death a month and a half before. The information came to me in a dream which I later recognized as a premonition. One could call it an astral travel experience with direct communication. Read more from my memoirhere(It is part of a series of postings on my book blog)
I can tell you this for sure. This dream really showed me how connected we all really are.
Here are my answers to the above questions – I knew because I communicated on an astral level with my grandfather. I am to share the information otherwise I wouldn’t have received it. And…It means we are all connected and there is a definite meaning to our lives here as human beings. It is all part of a larger plan.
Update: I only did a handful of podcasts and they can be found on this page – Linkstolove
Jackie Collins – A psychic woman. A powerhouse writer who was appalled by the double standard and fought back with her novels.
May Jackie Collins be joyous in her adventures on the other side. I had heard she passed away in September 2015 and was reminded of her brilliance while watching a show we have in Canada called “Unscripted”. What a powerhouse! This woman exuded excitement and joy. Jackie was thrilled about her life and very passionate about her writing.
In the interview, she revealed that she was intuitive. (or you could call her psychic) she said. I am not surprised by this. With the kind of success she had, it makes sense she followed the divine guidance she was given. Important point here though – she followed the nudges to complete The World is Full of Married Men from her husband and then followed through by submitting it for publication. She had the intuition and nudge to write. She knew she was a writer and she wrote. I think she was sent a divine intervention by way of her husband to get her on track with her life purpose. Not only to write but to share it with the world.
What I love about Jackie Collins is her kick butt attitude about the double standard. She fought back against it with her stories. She wrote stories of women who were powerful in their own right and did not settle for the double standard.
Jackie gave some writing advice also. WRITE. She would set herself up with a ritual and take away distractions. I like how she would write on a legal pad of paper with a fine point black pen. All of her books were written in long hand. I have heard the late Dr. Wayne Dyer speak of this too. He wrote in long hand.
I am writing my books in long hand because I can write freely and I keep going. It seems to me that this is also a better form of channelling what is coming to me. The ideas I have.
Mistakes do not slow me down, set me back or stop me. However, typing does. I type fast but I also correct myself as I go.
So check out the book that was banned in some countries when it was published in 1968. (the year I was born)

Only fools let a little thing like marriage get in the way of their careers…
Especially someone else’s.
David Cooper cheats on his wife. She doesn’t cheat — and that suits him fine. Until the young and beautiful Claudia appears and David wants out of his marriage. But Claudia has different ideas — different dreams: To be a model, an actress, a star. And she’ll do anything to make it. Just name a price…
THE WORLD IS FULL OF MARRIED MEN is a devastating exposure of the cutthroat media business — the phony promises and the very real power of the casting couch.
