A Message from Author and Coach: Kindred Light
For many years and through many crises, I despaired at the disparity between my life experience and the spiritual teachings I explored. While I was inspired and encouraged by the words of saints and sages, I did not understand how to activate divine power to transform myself, cope with difficulties, heal my wounds, cultivate mutually beneficial relationships, and experience divine love. I couldn’t make it real. I couldn’t activate the wisdom and power in my own life.
Increasing desperation brought me to my knees before the divine, finally demanding that I be comforted, instructed, and healed. Teachers and teachings appeared to reveal the next steps in my journey. Increasingly, I sought to change myself, my attitudes, and my beliefs to allow the divine to enter and change me.
Slowly at first and then more quickly, I watched as stubborn aspects of my life changed as I transformed. Moreover, each step revealed deeper insights and truths, a higher perspective, more compassion, and release from anxiety and fear. This quest became the purpose of my life as it healed my life. The teachings came alive for me.
My challenges are of the garden variety that touch every life, family, and organization. As I see others struggle as I have, I feel compelled to share what I have learned in the hope that it will help others. I have seen firsthand that it only takes one person changing for an entire family to transform. I hope this book touches that one person who is willing to change for the benefit of many around him or her. Each of us who does our part contributes to the healing of humankind. It is the highest purpose for our lives. As our consciousness ascends to the higher realms, the view gets better and better.
Each one of us is on a quest to evolve toward and discover our divine nature. We are distracted from this quest by conflicting goals, desires, fears, obstacles, past failures and challenging circumstances. We exalt our quest as we learn to harmonize our unruly thoughts and difficult emotions with our life lessons and purpose.

When I met Kindred at a Miracles Workshop, I witnessed one of the most profound transformations I have ever seen occur in a person. But even then, I saw only the tip of the iceberg. Everything that came before and after that amazing turning point in Kindred’s life is revealed in this book and it makes fascinating reading. You cannot read this book without being changed for the better by it.

It is always those that have faced the most difficulty that hold a high powered laser beam to light the way for our journey. Kindred Light drew me immediately into her story with such colorful candor and wisdom, that I couldn’t put it down. Her unique way of conveying that pain and suffering can be optional with the right tools is very enticing and empowering.
