Signing the Positive Transformation Spiral with Love
It’s extraordinary to watch as people melt into pages you have written, entranced! The feeling of purposeful connection to something greater, and that of gratitude and deep humility for being part of a global movement for positive transformation, is exquisite, delicate, and utterly sustaining. It’s one thing to be excited about holding a copy of a book you’ve contributed to in your hands, and it’s quite another to see eyes glisten with tears, feel hands reach for yours, and watch feet race homeward to devour the chapters!
What a privilege and a joy it is to be an active ripple-maker for positive transformation as Pebbles in the Pond: Transforming the World One Person at a Time finds it’s way into thousands of hands across the globe. I felt more than a little moved as I witnessed one person after the next become captivated by our book.
In early March there was a gathering of many of the contributing authors at Christine Kloser’s Transformational Authors Retreat at the beautifully tended Pearlstone Retreat, in Maryland in the USA. It was an outstanding opportunity to meet with like-hearted individuals who care about making an authentic difference. The tone of genuine kindness, grace, and gratitude that characterized the retreat is to be found in the textured experiences portrayed in Pebbles in the Pond: Transforming the World One Person at a Time. Together, we looked forward to the day when our chapters would be bound together in this work and launched into the world, and we set our loving intentions that our stories find you.
The worldwide launch of Pebbles in the Pond took place on May 20th, 2012. Forty-six of the finest transformational authors from around the world shared their real stories of trials, triumphs, and transcendence with the sole intention of inspiring others to find hope, healing, and positive possibilities. My chapter, “Born Free,” stands alongside the words of bestselling authors such as Arielle Ford, Marci Schimoff, Robert Allen, Sonia Choquette, and my dear friend Christine Kloser.
I’m grateful to back a concept I align with so passionately. The Pebbles in the Pond project combines creativity, personal growth, spirituality, art, and beauty – all for the highest purpose of enabling others to find hope, inspiration, and love. It is about honoring the experiences and voices of others who have danced their trail of trials in such a way that their greatest challenges became their most profound gifts.
Mira Moonbeam, the star of my story, woke early on the day of the book’s launch, brimming with six-year-old giggles and excitement that permeated the day. It felt perfect to be welcoming Pebbles in the Pond into our world by signing it at a celebration at our favorite local bookstore, Books of Buderim. I’d had to be flexible, as I had planned a lavish event that I had to postpone when, just a week prior to our globally set date, not one case of books had arrived from the US! You can imagine my delight and relief when a box of books turned up on the Monday morning prior to launch-date. I picked up the phone and called Jo, the owner of Books of Buderim, who welcomed me on short notice. Posters and leaflets were designed and printed, emails flew out, and the outcome was a fantastic day of sharing the Pebbles message of positive transformation. It’s true to say that even the pink-wrapped, heart-shaped chocolates were upstaged by the magnificent message of the book.
