Our Souls are continually calling us deeper. If we’re willing to shed our skins, then layer after layer of our truth will appear anew and demand action. Aligning our ordinary life with our evolutionary divinity is a path of fire: You burn. You grow. You burn. You grow. Constantly. The only stability is our trust in the process and our intuitive awareness that
Love’s very nature is to Consume and Call us Home.”
– Red Hot and Holy
Soon after my second book Red Hot and Holy: A Heretic’s Love Story was published in July 2013, I felt incomplete, unfinished and incredibly curious:
Why does my heart still feel closed? Why do I still hide my truth? Why is my service on this planet not what I know it could be? Why after years of diving deep inside myself do I feel like I’ve barely skimmed the surface? Why is soul loss such an epidemic? Why have we all forgotten who we are, where we come from, and why we’re here now?
These questions were invitations from my soul to remember and reveal more.
An inconvenient truth soon became clear:
I have another necessary step to take in order to incarnate my soul and serve this planet the way I’m meant to. And, that next step is writing the final book in my red trilogy, Redvelations: A Soul’s Journey to Becoming Human.
Red Hot and Holy was the “bridge book”- the book I needed to write in order to get me to my other side and the spiritual process that had to break me down completely so I would be willing and able to write Redvelations.
Red Hot and Holy is a memoir about a human finding her soul.
Redvelations is a memoir about a soul finding her humanity – it’s the book I’ve been trying to write for lifetimes.
Although I always knew Redvelations was coming, my ego planned for it later down the road, after I recovered from birthing Red Hot and Holy and got back on my financial feet.
Apparently, my soul has other plans.
Why I’m asking for donations?
In order to stay in integrity and honor my soul while writing Red Hot and Holy, I broke contract with my original publisher, pulled away from the spiritual marketplace and lost most of my livelihood. I learned the hard way that I cannot write soul-based books under contract, deadline, or the influence of commercial and corporate pressures.
For me, soul writing is similar to natural labor – uncontrollable, unpredictable, painful, ecstatic, and a profound initiation that needs to be respected and protected.
Then, in its own time, my wild red soul baby comes out – covered in blood, sweat, tears, shit and gratitude. A magnificent mess of a new life. I kiss her toes and carefully and consciously clean ‘er off.
If I sense this soul message is not just for me, but also for the masses, I will present this book to an ethically resonant publisher and then to the world, while fiercely protecting her original nature and organic path every step of the way.
Birthing Redvelations will require all my focus and every ounce of my spiritual stamina and physical strength.
Because with every push and every step, I will come up against every “thing” that’s in Our Way – internal fears, doubts, shadows, illusions, traumas, as well as every matching external force, system, paradigm, person or temptation.
Why is this such a rigorous, demanding, and all-consuming process?
Because I’m not giving birth to a book, but to my Self…
in a world that’s doing everything it can to dissuade us from being our true Selves.
Bottom Line: I’m determined to keep this book and my service on this planet as uncompromisingly pure as possible and your donations will help me do so.
Here’s a talk I gave in October 2013 for the Emerging Women conference about the tricks and trials of honoring one’s soul while having a “career” in spirituality: https://vimeo.com/81465358
Redvelations for You
So enough about me and my process. What will Redvelations offer you?
My hope is that Redvelations illuminates your own spectacular Love Affair with this magnificent Universe.
I hope Redvelations reminds you that you are not only a blessed human, but also a Distinct Divine Being who has been on a very long and very particular wild ride through this vast multidimensional Universe, which means you’ve got a lot to share (what you as a soul have learned through your rich and varied experiences and expressions) and offer (your well-earned gifts and wisdom), and it’s imperative that you do so.
Because this Universe realizes and re-members It’s Self as each of us realizes and re-members our Own. And, when you shine your unique light, you give the rest of us permission to do so as well.
I hope Redvelations ignites your full Incarnation.
Incarnating our distinct soul in our precious one-of-a-kind human body while staying radically intimate with others, this planet and this sensational thing called Life, is what It’s All about, in my opinion. Incarnation can also be a real bitch, so the more honest stories we have about this messy, awkward, incredibly sacred but undeniably strange process, the better.
On some lighter notes:
I hope Redvelations makes you marvel at your multidimensionality while you marvel at a ladybug.
I hope Redvelations raises your eyebrows, busts open your heart, causes you to laugh till you pee your pants and hug every soul you encounter (after you’ve changed your pants).
I hope Redvelations detonates the Love Bombs that are ticking inside every single one of us.
Because the explosive truth is:
When we Remember
Who we truly are,
Where we have come from,
Why we are here now,
We become unstoppable in the name of Love.
Your financial support will help create a safe space for me to sink into my soul for two-to-three years and take care of my basic human needs without survival fears interfering with the natural birthing process of Redvelations.
But the bare naked reality is: I have no idea if Redvelations will be published in the end or, even if it is, I can’t promise that you will like it (just like I had no idea if Red Hot and Holy would be published or likable while I was writing it). If Red Hot and Holy pushed the spiritual envelope, Redvelations may burn it to ashes.
To be clear: you are not supporting the production of a book as much as you are supporting the birth of a soul.
Here’s a blog post I wrote about this.
What I do know is that after birthing Redvelations – regardless of whether it’s published or well-received – I’ll be able to serve you and this beloved planet in ways I can’t now, in ways my soul originally intended to serve, replete with a red super-heroine cape.
I realize it’s an enormous privilege to ask for donations when there are so many worthy people and causes you could be donating to these days, but I have to trust that I’m being nudged to ask for your support not just for my soul, but for all souls.
For I feel that each time a soul remembers and lives its truth, this widens the energetic pathway for other souls to remember and live their truth.
No doubt about it: We’re in this together.
If my writing, interviews, talks, classes or retreats have contributed to your life in any positive way, and if your soul is called to contribute, I’d be grateful for your support.

“Once, when you thought no one was looking, I saw you open your heart so wide the earth fell in.

Once, when you thought you were all alone, I felt every atom in this universe rush forward to embrace you. Again.
Thank you for living so beautifully.”
