Book Cover of Dan Brown's new book, InfernoLast week I had the honor of being present at the Lincoln Center for Dan Brown‘s celebration to release his newest novel “Inferno“.

Dan Brown has been an inspiration to me for years.  His novels always seem to expand my  understandings and help me to bring words to the very things that I am processing at the time.

Even though I am very public with the messages that I bring forth from Spirit, behind the scenes,  I am always exploring a deeper layer of understanding and Oneness that is in a space where my words are not yet ripe.  Dan’s novels seem to ripen my words, leaving me with the feeling that we are drawing from the same source. Inferno is no exception.

To be honest I never even gave a thought to what this book would be about.  Not for a second did I even think of the title and what it would infer.  Not until Dan began to describe his past three years in hell!  Of course!  Inferno is based on the Dante’s Inferno, reaching Paradise after going into the 7 layers of hell.

I have spent the past few years exploring the darkness as a gateway to Oneness.  As my friend says “I sit in the darkness but it is the light that I wield.”  I believe that to truly embody Oneness is to remember that Nothing  is outside of Oneness.  If Oneness truly is All that Is, then this must include everything.  Even those darker shades of grey that frighten us.  So I have spent countless hours in meditation guiding the “underworld” energies into the remembrance of Oneness - transforming the shades of murky grey into bright Pristine Black and silver.

A few weeks ago Spirit indicated to me that my work with this is complete and that I would soon read a book that would ripen my words.

As I sat in the Lincoln Center adorned with my  favorite Lapis Luzuli necklace I smiled because believe it or not, I never even considered the obvious.

The book I was waiting for was in fact the Inferno by Dan Brown.  My smile turned to chills when I got home and read on the first page of Inferno, “An amulet of Lapis Lazuli hung around her neck”

We really are all connected, bringing forth our understandings from a single source of pure creation.

I finished  reading Inferno last night.  Once again, Dan did an amazing job of creating a layered adventure that expands our thinking… I will be processing for a while… right now the three things most on my mind after reading Inferno are…..

  1. What we all REALLY want is to be understood.
  2. Perhaps one of the most important tasks in front of us as a human race is overcoming our fear of Death.
  3. Human’s have an innate drive to procreate.  It is time to transform that drive into a desire to co-create.

Give me a couple days to process and I will write a blog post on each thought!

Have YOU read Inferno yet?  I would love to know what you think of the book…please feel free to comment below.
