Every individual, at some point in time, has asked themselves, “How can I get through this? Why is this happening to me? Am I even strong enough to work through this?” Questions you may be asking yourself daily or even every moment. The good news is this; you already have the ability within you to have a life full of vibrant health and abundance. The stories in this book will help jump-start your personal healing plan whether you’re facing an illness, nursing a broken heart, battling demons from the past, or simply wish to begin living a brighter and healthier life.
Debbie’s story shares her difficult and painful process of not only processing her grief, but how debilitating it was to finally lose control in order to heal. Her chapter shares the following about the path she walked during her healing:
“During my healing process, I learned to focus completely on myself, began to cautiously face the truth of me, and slowly released myself from my self-imposed cage of fear. The time estimates of others regarding how long I should grieve were finally ignored. By allowing myself to lose control, I began to stop controlling not only myself, but others. I screamed; hit pillows; wrote pages and pages of memories, hatred, sadness, and unspeakable things; and when I was finally spent, it was upon Mother Earth I fell to surrender my grief and pain.”
The artist Patricia Jerde, shares the following review:
“Debbie Engelmann’s chapter “Falling Into The Garden of Healing” so beautifully describes the process she had to go through to heal herself. The path she found to that place of healing within herself is revealed with beautiful and powerful imagery. That path has led her to the peace and strength she now uses to help others heal. Knowing Debbie is a gift, and her story simply reinforces the wisdom she has found on her healing journey. I am so thankful she has shared her path with us in this book, which invites all of us to start the voyage of our own healing.”
The message and magic in this book is deep. It stirs the soul, illuminates the path toward healing and shows the reader that anything is possible.
My earliest memories are of my Grandmother who always smelled of fresh bread combined with the smell of earth dirt. You could find her planting seeds or new plants in the garden area, or maybe transferring an herb that had strayed to far from her watchful eye. Her nurturing heart helped that garden grow. She taught me things about herbs, gardening, flowers, and natural folk healing, all of it being beautifully intertwined with her contagious and constant intoxicating love of the outdoors.
She loved me without limits and the stories she told me, from her simple perspective, were about the intimate secrets within everything on earth. It was through her simple, authentic compassionate love that she transmitted deep into my soul, seemingly by osmosis, not only her knowledge of plants and growing things, but the ancient and intuitive "knowings" she carried within came from beyond the limits of time itself.
To this day I am most comfortable in nature. I love to learn, write, ponder, and share the things I have learned from both the horror and beauty that has sculpted my life and the entire world wrapped around me.
One of Grandma's gifts to me is a strong dislike of judgments of all kinds. Judgments drive me crazy because it places barriers between people rather than respect and community. I have enough love in my heart to heal the universe and I'm trying to do just that - one person at a time.
Look around you - don't you see that combined as one people, we are all simply beings with beautiful talents and dreams? Its all there - life is what we make of it.
I'm glad you have reached out to connect.
